Southern 78 Spring Hill (Saturday) Truck Rides Still Favorite Of Holiday-Minded Loyolans By JOAN GAULENE Shrove Tuesday, more popularly known as Mardi Gras, will invade the "Crescent City" scene on March 2. Loyolans, like one-half million Orleanians and thousands of visitors, find that their activities are being affected by the festive mood. Still holding first place on the poll of "how to spend Mardi Gras" is the ever popular truck ride following King Rex. Beggars will load their crowd of capering clowns on two trucks. The SAK brigade will I be partying in real carnival style at a Masquerade Monday. ADG will get into the spirit on a truck ride also. Many, if not all the campus organizations, will celebrate in some way before if not on Mardi Gras day. Others will review the parades from banquette positions attired in "strange dress". Some Loyolans will witness the chaos of this event for the first time. It is the visitors and out-of-towners that keep the Mardi Gras spirit alive. Orleanians are inclined to take the occasion for granted. Perhaps it is because many of us can remember Mardi Gras from the time we viewed the float and torch •cene astride Dad's shoulder*. Pie Dufour termed it quite well as "the greatest free show on earth". And it is from the viewing point. It must also be remembered however, that approximately one hundred thousand dollars is thrown away in the form of favors during carnival week. In what other city can a lord of misrule reign supremely for one entire day? This week you will see our fair city in all her emotions. From the wild tumult as King Rex approaches sometime near noon, to the dead calm that comes with morning and the beginning of Lent. The carnival season began on January 6 and has moved steadily with a series of balls. Once the parades begin you know the end is near and finally everyone looks longingly after Comus' last float knowing it is all over for another year. Was that sigh you uttered one of relief or regret? Father Cooper To Address Club March 7 The Rev. Harold Cooper, S.J., assistant professor of philosophy, will talk on "Faith and Reason" in a lecture sponsored by the Philosophy Club, March 7, at 8 p.m. in Marquette Auditorium, the Rev. Henry R. Montecino, club moderator, announced. The lecture, which is the first in a series of annual talks, will climax the cfub's celebration' of the feast day of St. Thomas Aquinas, the patron of Catholic philosophers and the patron of the club. Father Montecino wil be celebrant at a Mas 3 that morning at 8:45 in the Thomas Hall Chapel for members of the Philosophy Club. This annual observance of St. Thomas Aquinas' feast day was adopted when the club's constitution was ratified at the beginning of the fall semester. The purpose of the club is to offer an opportunity to those interested in philosophical matters to read and discuss the works of 'at- philosophers. Father Cooper summarised his speech, which deals with the problem of religion, as: "If God has spoken to man, why should we use our reason? And if God has given us reason, why should He have to speak to us?" He will resolve the problem by presenting St. Thomas' solution to it. The public is invited to attend the lecture. Admission is free. No Maroon Next Week There will be no school Monday and Tuesday, Mardi Gras Day. Due to the Carnival Holidays there will be no Maroon next week. The next issue will come out on March 12. 'Pilate' To Run For Holy Week Tryouts for "Pilate", a three act play written and directed by Leo Zinser, dramatics director, were held Tuesday and Thursday nights in Marquette Auditorium.As yet the names of the persons selected have not been announced. This will mark the third consecutive year (and only the fourth time) that the play has been enacted. The Thespians had previously staged it in Morgan City on Holy Thursday of last year, and followed that up the next day with a presentation over WDSU-TV. The play is scheduled to run Monday through Thursday of Holy Week at Jesuit Auditorium. Matinees have been arranged for high school students, and special prices are being offered to Loyola students. Tickets are being offered on a commission basis to all Catholic organizations interested. Any others interested in obtaining tickets may do so by contacting the Rev.

Band To Make VFW Records The University band has been invited to record several selections, including the official VFW March by Edwin Franko Goldman, noted martial composer, for the Veterans of Foreign Wars of New Orleans, according to Mr. George Jansen, director. This music will make up part of an album of patriotic music to be distributed to VFW posts throughout the country. The proceeds from the sale of the album will go to veterans' hospitals for the purpose of helping disabled veterans. The band was selected over several colleges in this area to make this recording. The band is also scheduled to give a concert on April 26, in McMain Auditorium to be sponsored by the New Orleans Music Teachers Association. The concert is one of a series to be played by the Loyola and Tulane bands for the students of music in the New Orleans schools. Loyola Should Be In 1954 Sugar Bowl Tournament Several weeks ago a local sports editor proposed that the Sugar Bowl basketball committee perform "a civic function" and take Loyola and Tulane Universities into the 1954 cage tournament. The Maroon goes on record as saying: "Loyola University deserves a bid to the 1954 tournament." The Maroondoes not have to speak for Tulane. Now let the Wolfpack speak for itself. During the 1953-54 season Loyola won 15 games against six defeats with a game coming up Saturday night with the Spring Hill Badgers. On the strength of its record Loyola was invited this week to become the first Deep South independent cage team ever to be invited in the NCAA tournament. The Wolves showed Crescent City cage fans a fast, rugged team—one of five quints in the nation to defeat Dayton University's fabulous Flyers. The Wolves won all but one of its local games and gave LSU its toughest fight on the Bengal's home floor, holding All-American Bob Pettit to 15 points. True, Loyola loses five men from this year's team, but only two have played regularly. However, Loyola's "B" team won the AAU league championshipchampionship for the fourth consecutive year and has Tony Imbraguglia, George Mettler and John Broussard all ready to move up to the varsity. Then too, Loyola will have Crit Lorio, a standout frosh two years ago, probably coming back to the University in September after a tour in the Navy. It goes without saying that Loyola will have one of its finest teams next year, a team capable of playing and defeating the nation's best. Loyola—handicapped all this past year without a gym of its own—will have a new, 6500-capacity Field House to play its home games. Thus the Wolves will have a court "they can call their own" for the first time in five years. And just look at the national records and they'll show you what the "home court" means. Kentucky, for example, hasn't lost at home in 10 years; other teams have similar (if not as good) records at home. It's been rumored that the Sugar Bowl will play its 1954 tournament in Loyola's new Field House. Wouldn't it be a fitting gesture for the Sugar Bowl basketballers to have the Wolfpack as the host team? "BIG JIM" Coach says «ure . FR. O'FLYNN AD .ay. OK . . Follow The Pack To NCAA Tourney Attention, students! Here's your chance to show school spirit and really back the Pack! Plans are being made to follow the Pack to the NCAA tournament in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The cost round-trip by Greyhound is $28.72, but the 37 passenger capacity must be filled. If you're interested in making the trip, please leave your name, address, and telephone number either in The Maroon office or in the Public Relations office today or at the latest, Wednesday.Let's follow the Pack and show them how proud we are of their going to the NCAA—the first time in Loyola's history! and hope to avenge a previous defeat by Spring Hill Saturday night when they meet the Badgers at Tulane gym. According to the NCAA rules, five Wolfpack cagers will not be eligible for the national tournament. They are Gus Reynoir, Bobby Hanberg, Ralph Barnett, Ernie Smith, and Don Rodriguez. All played as freshmen for the Wolfpack and thus cannot compete in the NCAA tournament as seniors. Chairman of this district was Cliff Wells, head cage coach at Tulane University. Coach Wells was instrumental in Loyola's appointment to the NCAA tournament.Team Leaves For Debate In Tourney Loyola's Debating Team left yesterday to participate mj the Spring Hill Azalea Debating Tournament to be held today and tomorrow on the Spring Hill College campus.Participating in the tournament are Dan Stapp, Gene Murret, Norris Fitzmorris, and Matt Schott. The Rev. Alvin Pilie, S.J., moderator of the Edward Douglas White Debating Society, accompanied the team. The tournament, sponsored by Spring Hill College, is the first in which the Loyola Debating Team participates this year. Some of the best debating teams in the country will compete, including Georgetown and Notre Dame. The Debating Society, at it* regular Wednesday meeting Feb. 17, debated on the resolution "That Loyola University should be open to all students, regardless of race, color, or creed." The affirmative was presented by Millard Clark and Matt Schott. On the negative were Peggy Ducey and Pat McCarthy. The affirmative won the debate. The topic, "Resolved, that the honor system should be employed at Loyola University," was debated Wednesday night. Campus Capers Completes Tours Campus Capers, Loyola's variety group, journeyed to Belle Chasse Sunday on the last of their "good will" tours. The proceeds will go toward Our Lady of Perpetual Help's Parish Fund. The 40-member troupe under the direction of Paul Emenes, consisted of the 14-piece Capers band, vocalists, dancers, comedians and other acts. Featured soloists were baritone Claude Boudreaux, tenor John Paquette, and sopranos Gertrude Braden and Lynn Murphy. Boudreaux was 1982's winner of Blue Key Talent Night. Other acts included the Melduets, Betty Henderson and Olga Seiferth, winners of the group competition in 1953's Talent Night; the Caperettes, consisting of Marguerite Dubos, Irlee Leclere, Lynn Murphy and Shirley Stoma; two dance numbers by Marilyn Johnson; comedian Ted Pfister; and a German band featuring Anna Copponex on the sousaphone.
