The Loyola Maroon Vol. XXXI, X-259 Loyola University, New Orleans, La., March 26, 1954 No. 21 WOLFPACK GETS SUGAR BOWL BID By TOM FINNEY Enters Annual Classic With HC, ND, Bradley eiyola, along with Bradley University of Peoria, has pted a bid to compete in the 1954 Sugar Bowl Basketball Tournament to be played in late December, Bernie Grenrood, president of the New Orleans Mid-Winter Sports Association, announced Tuesday. The Pack rounded off the four-team field which also includes Notre Dame, and Holy Cross the N.I.T. and defending Sugar Bowl champion. Chairman "Monk" Simons of the Basketball Committee said upon his return from Kansas City that the Sugar Bowl was "particularly happy to have Notre Dame and Loyola make their debut in our tournament and Bradley and Holy Cross returning. Coach McCafferty who had not yet returned from the N.C.A.A. finals was unavailable for comment.The Wolves have chances of meeting the Crusaders of Holy Cross who own the distinction of being the defending Sugar Bowl champion, the National Invitational Champ and ranked third nationally by the Associated Press, or the Irish from South Bend who bumped them off in first round of the N.C.A.A. and are sixth in the nation, or the Braves from Illinois who were runners up to La Salle in the National finals and themselves rated seventh in the United States. It will have to be two of these three. Loyola will probably meet the LaSalle Explorers in the dedication of it* new field home at the beginning of next icaion. Thi* would be a great treat for the fan* to witne** the play of Tom Gola, the Explorer's twotime All-American. La Salle ran over Bradley in the National final* at Kanui City and are second only to Kentucky nationally.Should this come about the Pack would face both N.I.T. and N.C.- A.A. Champions and the N.C.A.A. runner-up. The Wolves compiled a 15-8 record on the regular season with victories over such ranking teams as Xavier and Dayton. Spring Hill was the only two-time cojiqueror of the Pack this year. Notre Dame, one of Loyola's possible opponents in the Sugar Bowl, ended the Wolves' season with a 80-70 defeat at Fort Wayne two weeks ago. Penn State, the N.C.- A.A.'s surprise club was one of the only three teams to beat the Irish this winter. Coach McCafferty said earlier that he would be happy to be in the Bowl competition and was confident in making as good a showing a* he did in the National*.Mid-Winter Sports Association officials expressed contentment in having just as good a field as in the past. The Sugar Bowl has had such unforgettable moments as the feats of Billy Mann and Gene Melchiore in their defeat of the St. Louis Billikens in 1950, the last second tap-in of the Bill's Tom Lillis to upset Kentucky in '51, and LSU's double-overtime victory over Villanova in the 1952 tourney. In addition to these more recent tournaments the Sugar Bowl has seen such personalities as Gail McArthur, Norm Pilgrim, Sam Ranzino, Bob Cousey, Ed McCauley, Alex Groza, Ralph Krd, Frank Ramsey, Clif Hagan, Spivey, Paul Arizin, Bob Pet["ogo Polazzi and many others. THREE MEMBERS OF LOYOLA'S veteran NCAA basketball team joyfully read the welcome news that the Pack has been selected to play in the Sugar Bowl Tournament in the new fieldhouse, Dec. 28-29.

Spear Fishing, Donkey Hunt Routine For Twins When a bujlet grazed Michael Maal's forehead it didn't ruin his taste for burro hunting with twin brother Carlos. The Maals, 20-year-old twin brothers from the Dutch West Indies' Island Curacao, find life their "easy" compared to their pre-dental studies at Loyola. "In Curacao I can feesh all I want and hunt all I want," smiles Carlos while brother Michael nods approval. Calmly pointing to his three hunting scars, Michael says he still can't decide which is more , exciting—spear fishing or hunting wild donkeys on his father's farm.. The Caribbean Sea provides the best relaxation for Carlos who can't compare anything to the thrill of driving his spear through some unsuspecting barracuda. B average students, the twins speak four languages fluently: Spanish, English, Dutch, and the Island dialect called Papiamento. They describe the last as a mixture of every tongue spoken in Curacao, and prefer it for their own conversation. Every nation on the globe seems to be represented in the small melting pot which its free-port status has made of Curacao. "In school, the children are taught four languages, English, Dutch, Spanish and French, and it is not unusual to hear people speaking German, Italian, Portuguese,Portuguese, etc." But in custom, Curacao is very similar to ffie Spanish speaking countries, they both agree. In Curacao—no dating, but here—no chaperone*. A very good idea, no e* verdad?" Carlos and Michael like Loyola because "It's not a big school." (Both attended Cheshire Academy in Connecticut and Tennessee's Wesleyan College before coming to Loyola last semester and are now in their sophomore year here). Although they have gone to a few "cervezadas" (beer parties) and were much impressed by Mardi Gras, the twins have their own formula for scholastic success . . . "We come here to study," says Michael, "In Curacao, we play," adds Carlos. THE MAAL TWINS—MIKE AND CARLOS Honor Group Pledges Three For Scholastic Achievement Three new pledges were presented Tuesday to the Alpha Delta chapter of Rho Chi, national honorary pharmaceutical society, at a meeting held recently at the home of Mr. John F. Mc- Closkey, dean of the college of pharmacy. The pledges are Willa Mae Ullo, senior, and Jose Borges and Jay Cowl, juniors in the college of pharmacy. They will be formally initiated at Rho Chi'a annual banquet April S at Delmonico't Membership into Rho Chi is determined by election, and is bestowed upon undergraduate junior and senior students in the college of pharmacy who have distinguished themselves by scholarly achievement in their courses. The aims of the organization are to produce capable pharmacists by making its members more professional, ethical, and useful in the world today. IOC Meets Tonite The Inter- Organizational Council will meet tonight at 8 p.m. in Marquette Auditorium. Every organization must be represented at the meeting by one of its officers. There are many important things to be discussed, and representatives are requested to be prompt. Pre-Dents Stage Gamard 'Circus' Gamard, pre - dental society, staged its annual "Dental Circus" Monday night, according to Donald Strain, president. Doctors Finn Bronner, Charles Ammens, and Norman Gueno gave demonstration speeches. Doctor Bronner, head of the department of pathology, spoke on the geneology of teeth, tracing their development and evolution from primitive man to the present time. Doctor Ammens, professor of oral surgery and visiting dental surgeon, Loyola University Unit, Charity Hospital, spoke on oral surgery and showed color slides of cases of some of his former patients. Pilgrim Statue Visits Campus The Pilgrim Virgin statue of Our Lady of Fatima visited the campus Thursday, the feast of the Annunciation, in Holy Name of Jesus Church. Arriving at 11:45, the statue was escorted into Church by prefects of the various sodalities on the campus. Students, priests and other faculty members arrived in Church to venerate the statue. The word of welcome w«« made by the Rev. W. J. Harty, S.J., pattor of Holy Name parish, followed by the crowning of the «taute and the rotary. "The Menage of Fatima" wn given by the Rt. Rev. M*gr. William C. McGrath. Following the address was benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament.Students, faculty members, and parishoners touched various religous articles such as rosaries and medals to the statue, which was made in Fatima of material from Fatima by a master artist. The statue is presently making a tour of all New Orleans' Catholic parishes, and will tour other large cities in the country before returning to Fatima, Portugal. Friday Proclaimed University Holiday Since a general retreat has proved unnecessary, tomorrow will be a University holiday, the Rev. Edward A. Doyle, dean of faculties, announced. Student cooperation in making the week-end retreats has made this holiday possible, Fr. Doyle said. As a further concession to the undergraduate students, no classes will meet during the mid-semester examination period.There will be no Maroon next Friday due to mid-semester exams. Student Bar Plans Angola Prison Tour The American Student Bar Association has made tentative plans for its annual field trip to the Angola State Prison on April 3, according to Samuel R. Exnicios, chairman of the arrangements committee. The trip is pending confirmation of the warden of the prison. As in previous years, students going on the trip will travel in private cars, leaving from Walgreen's Drug Store at Carrollton and Tulane Avenue promptly at 8 a.m. in order to arrive at the prison at 11 a.m. Professor De Van D. Daggett of the law school will meet the students at the entrance and accompany them through the prison. Primarily, the trip is open to law school students, but the faculty and interested students, especially those in pre-law and sociology, in other colleges are invited to attend. Those wishing to make the trip must sign the roster on the Bar Association's bulletin board in law school on the second floor. Persons not having transportation may contact Exnicios or any member of the Bar Association, and arrangements will be made. Kappa Delta Pi Plans Field House Drive Kappa Delta Pi, national honorary educational society, made plans to raise money for the Field House Drive, at their meeting Wednesday evening. Each student member will be asked to donate fifty cents and those of the alumnae will be asked to donate one dollar, according to Miss Lucile Bostic. Dean's Letter To Students A misunderstanding seems to have arisen regarding the authority of the Student Council in reference to student organizations. The constitution of the Student Council was approved by the Board of Directors in April 1926 (Loyola Handbook p. 31). Article 11. Section 3 of the constitution of the Student Council states "The objects of the Student Council of Loyola University are as follows: To exercise general supervision over all student activities, organizations, and conduct (Loyola Handbook p. 27). In order that the Student Council may be able to carry out its aforementioned purpose it is necessary that from time to time it requests all student organizations to submit data regarding their condition, membership, and activities. On the basis of this information the Student Council will be able to determine what organizations should be studied with a view to continuation as a student organization or, if necessary to being dropped from the campus. The Student Council subject to approval of the Dean of Students and Board of Directors of the University grants approval for the continuation of an organization on the campus. Since much of the misunderstanding regarding the Student Council's action has centerd around the word "re-charter," I am asking the Council to change the word to "review" or "recognize" or "approve" or some like term. But the principle remains that the Student Council has been delegated authority by the administrators of the University to "exercise general supervision over all student organizations."Rev. Anthony C. O'Flynn, S.J.
