The Maroon also merited the award, the highest a college publication can receive, for the fall semester of 1952, totaling 980 points. The publication was judged superior in vitality, creativeness, printing and feature articles. An excellent rating was awarded in news coverage, treatment of news, organization, style, leads, content of headlines, page makeup, coverage and treatment of sports and display. All but one of the sections in the ACP report received at least an excellent rating. The critical service supplied by the Associated Collegiate Press is to "provide an agency by which staffs may be aided in giving their schools and communities a significant publication, and to help the staffs in the solution of their problems." It is not to create inter-school rivalry, but to establish the idea of improvement.Every publication was analyzed and rated according to method of publication, type of school, enrollment of school, and frequency of issue. Gary Hymel was editor. • Talent Night Chairman Named Burkenstock To Emcee; Try outs Start Oct 26 Lloyd G.

Slate Pre-Law Campus Group For University Mr. Antonio E. Papale, dean of the law school, and Mr. Edward Socola, prelegal counselor, will attend the first annual pre-legal counselors' conference, today and tomorrow, at Southern Methodist University, to obtain information concerning the establishment of a pre-law club here on the campus. "It is my hope as a result of this conference that I can get approval from the University officials for the creation of a prelaw club here with a view toward stimulating a closer relationship between pre-law students and the school of law," Dean Papale said. The subject of one of the panel discussions at the conference will be "The Place of the Pre-Law Club in Pre-Legal Education." A law counselor will give his evaluation of such a club, and a law student will give his reflections on it. The setting up and operation of a successful pre-law club will also be discussed. The founding of the organization has been suggested to the Rev. Edward A. Doyle, S.J., dean of faculties, by Mr. Papale. The dean and faculty of Law School and the Loyola Student Bar Association, representing the student body, have suggested activities for a pre-law club. If organized it would sponsor activities for pre-law students, and with the counselor acting as moderator, would guide them in selecting good background courses preparatory to law study. By cooperation with the English Department, future law students would be assigned themes and term papers dealing with legal subjects to acquaint them with legal terminology and research in the law library. Since reading and writing comprise the stock and trade of lawyers, it is hoped this plan would develop interest in legal writing on the Loyola Law Review. Other activities suggested are talks by the dean and faculty of law school, and invitations to future law students to attend trials of simulated cases at the trial court and appellate court level. LOYOLA STUDENTS stood in line all week to contribute to the campus-wide drive for the United Fund. Hero JOEL STEPHENS, tented at left, give, a pledge card to JOY MARIE LANDRY, extreme right, who teems to be doing "quite a bit of digging." Other* are waiting around to make their contributioni to the drive. NFCCS Head Speaks Here "Surprising" is the best word to describe the rapid growth of the National Federation of Catholic College Students, Dave Mc- Whirter, NFCCS president, said here Wednesday night in Marquette Auditorium. Speaking to students from Loyola, Dominican and Xavier, Mc- Whirter traced the history of the NFCCS. The organization was originated in 1937 in New York. In 1948 it had achieved a membership of approximately 40 colleges, and in that year became the youth section of the National Catholic Welfare Council. Today the membership stands at some 200,000 students representing 191 colleges in the U. S. The founding of the federation sprang from the need of exchanging ideas, experiences and problems and of creating a voice of Catholic college students in this country, McWhirter stated. The talk was followed by a discussion period, after which James E. Fitzmorris, representing Mayor Morrison presented him with a certificate of honorary citizenship and a key to the city. Chairman and master of ceremonies was Norris Fitzmorris, senior delegate of the NFCCS here. #-# FATHER BUTT RETURNS The Rev. Joseph A. Butt, S.J., has just returned from Boston, Mass, where he attended the annual convention of the Controllers Incorporated of America and carried on official business for the University at Boston College. Father Butt war also able to see five of the World Series games. Drive' Plans Suggested At lOC Meeting The Inter-Organizational Council voted Wednesday for a University-wide convocation at which the Very Rev. W. Patrick Donnelly, S.J., president of the University, will present his views on the fund-raising campaign for the seats of the field house. The motion was made after Ben Bridgeman, president of the college of business administration, announced three different plans to raise funds. The plans suggested were: 1) That each student contribute 25 cents weekly toward the fund for one seat in the field house. This plan would run on a 40-week school year until the entire amount is paid. 2) That a $10 pledge card be submitted to each family on the campus, thus having each family buy a seat. 3) That each organization sponsor an activity on the campus, the proceeds of which will go towards the purchase of seats. Invite Coeds For Adoration Coeds are invited to sign up for perpetual adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament from 9 a.m. till 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, beginning Oct. 26, provided all the time periods are filled. A chart will be placed in the Quadrangle this Monday. Those interested are urged to sign their name in a blank for a 15 minute period of adoration. Although sponsored by the Little Flower Sodality, coeds in all colleges and schools are invited to join in the devotion. The boys are already participating in the adoration, sponsored by the ROTC and the Sodality. Those not able to keep the 15 minute vigil they have signed up for must get someone to take their place, the Rev. Sam Hill Ray, S.J., chaplain, said. Says 'Buy' Like Columbus' Find Dr. Nichols First Loyola Forum Speaker & if "»V ft ft ft ft ft ft Dr. Roy Franklin Nichols, noted historian and dean of the graduate school of the University of Pennsylvania, told the Loyola Forum Monday that Jefferson's purchase of Louisiana was akin to Columbus' discovery of America. Speaking in the Grand Ballroom of the Roosevelt, the dean said that Jefferson, Livingston and Monroe were pathfinders like Columbus, and also like him, achieved part of their success accidentally."Through the last century-anda-half the Louisiana Purchase territory has played a major role in the levelopment of the greatness of the United States," Dr. Nichols added, "and has supplied wealth, strength, democracy, enthusiasm, and above all, a subtle spiritual power." The great territory, referred to by Dr. Nichols at a "second 13 states," developed rapidly and proved to be one of America's richest areas. Originally, Jefferson's intention was to purchase only the port of New Orleans, the dean explained, but feeling that the rural area would equalize the voting power of the cities, a step in furthering his plans for a pure society, he decided to accept the territory, which proved to be "the greatest bargain the US ever made." The entire territory was purchased for 15 million dollars. Dr. Nichols has been with the University of Penn»ylvania • ince 1925. In 1949 he tpent a year at guest lecturer of American history at Cambridge University, England. Considered one of the foremost authorities on the development of the Democratic party, he has been visiting professor of history at many of the leading universities throughout the nation. He is author of the Pulitzer prize-winning book, "The Disruption of American Democracy." DR. NICHOLS 'Louisiana Purchase' In Library Display The library display this week will recall the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. A map of the Purchase, miniature replicas of flags that once flew over the territory, little known facts and figures, and personalities that played an important role in the Purchase will be shown. The library staff is sponsoring and arranging this exhibit.
