The Loyola Maroon Vol. XXXII, X-259 , , » Loyola University, New Orleans, La., March 18, 19SS NO. 16 3 Best Speakers Chosen In Trials By MARILYN HALL Al Huddleston, Francis Klein and Thomas Dußos were unanimously named by the judges as the best speakers in the opening trials of the Freshman Moot Court elimination Wednesday. Six teams participated in the competition, sponsored by the St. Thomas More Law Club. Winners of the first team were the defendants, Al Huddleston and Gene Palmisano. Plaintiffs were Paul Leech and Bob Burns. The plaintiffs of the second team, Herb Christenberry and Francis Klein won in a split decision over Caryl Vesy and Thomas Toranto, defendants. The plaintiffs took over again when Nick Gagliano and Thomas Dubos took the judges' nod of approval in another split dicision over the defendants, Dennis Rousseau and Fritz Westenberger. The winning teams also took honors for the best briefs in the trials. Judges for the first three trials were: first trial, Marcus Broussard, Chief Justice, Ben Johnson and Harold Savoie; second team, Robert Scott Mcintosh, 111, Chief Justice, Grace Tedesco and Norman Francis; third team, Michael O'Keefe, Chief Justice, John Olivier and Joan Danner. Elimination trials will continue through the week with the two remaining teams competing in the final trial. The losing teams are eliminated from the competition. Dan Carroll and Ed Broussard drew a bye in the preliminaries. Andre Trawick and Dan Barfield, the remaining team, participated in the preliminaries yesterday. Winners have not yet been announced. Marcus Broussard, president of the sponsoring organization, complimented the first six teams on the results of the opening of the trials this semester. The case appealed involves the owner of a canned and frozen food factory (the defendant) who is suing a business associate (the plaintiff) for breach of contract. The plaintiff entered into a written contract with the defendant to use the defendant's equipment for packaging a meatless stuffing under the plaintiff's labels. All materials were payed for and purchased by the plaintiff, and the defendant charged on a per package basis for his services. The defendant further agreed "not to manufacture, package, ship or in any wise handle any other meatless or giblet stuffing under any other name or label." Just prior to the first anniversary of the contract, the plaintiff started to package some products elsewhere. When this face became known the defendant served notice of termination of the contract and is now processing and selling meatless stuffing under a different label. The plaintiff is sueing for specific performance of the defendant's promise "net to manufacture, package, ship, or in any wise handle any other meatless stuffing under any other name or label." Exams Approach Mid - lemeiter examinations will be held Monday, March 28, through Saturday, April 2. All regular daises will be cancelled during this period; only examinations will be held. In departmental examinations, all sections of courses mentioned on the bulletin board of the registrar's office will take exams at the hour indicated even though the class does not meet regularly at that hour. A special list of rooms and proctors for departmental examinations will be posted. All others will be held in rooms in which the class usually meets under the supervision of the regular professor. Students with conflicts or more than three examinations one day should report to the office of the dean before Friday, March 25. Thespians Set Nite With Poe Tonight At 8 The Thespians dramatic society will offer "A Night with Poe" tonight at 8 p.m. in Marquette Auditorium. This will mark the second reading in Thespians* history. Their first came during this past Christmas season when they presented Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol." "Since our first effort in this type of production was so well received, we thought we would offer another," Leo C. Zinser, director, said. "The works of Edgar Allen Poe are actually more conducive to a reading than was Dickens'," he continued, "and the selections for tonight will picture the author in all his creative versatility."On the program for tonight are three of Poe's poems and one of his short dramatic works. The short story presentation will be "A Cask of Amontillado," and will be handled by Ted Pfister, A&S senior, and George Hoag, A&S sophomore. The plot of this particular work deals with two characters, Montresor, a wealthy, grudge-bearing merchant, portrayed by Pfister; and Fortunato, a wine connoisseur, played by Hoag. Montresor invites Fortunato into his wine cellar to test a cask of wine which he believes to be Amontillado. There he manacles him into a crypt and begins closing the openings with bricks. Fortunato thinks it is all a joke, until Montresor has filled all hut the last brick. Then Montresor calls to him but receives no answer, so he fills the gap, moves rubble and ancient bones before the place to give it an untouched appearance, then mutters the reading's closing words—ln Pace Requiescat. One of the offerings will be Zinser's reading of "The Raven " a poem which tells of a man who has lost a loved one and of a Raven who comes to haunt him and remind him that his love is lost "forevermore." "The Bells" will be the selection to be given by Myra Monahan, A&S sophomore. "This is a lovely, melodious poem, which calls for tremendous variations in tone, and is definitely not an easy reading," Zinser said. Matt Schott, A&S sophomore, will read the third poem, "Annabel Lee." This tells the tale of a man who is sorrowing for his lost loved one. 56 Accepted By Dent frats • Loyola's dental fraternities tapped 56 new pledges in ceremonies held last week. ■ Xi Psi Phi led with 24 new. pledges, including: Val Acosta, William Aguilo-Dies, James Andrews, Martin Bonacorso, Robert Clark, Harry de Boisblanc, Olin Desonier, Louis Gilberti, Carl Gumpert, James Hagen, Carlton Haugen, Loys Huckabay, Jerry Johnson, Robert Lefeve, John Maloney, Ernest Mittelbronn, Hector Oliveria.

'Knitting Circle/ Coeds' Newest Fad, Invades Loyola Campus By KATHLEEN DOWLING In the cafe, library, classrooms, quadrangle or any other place you care to venture these days, a sight you're almost sure to be greeted with is a pair of knitting needles and a ball of yarn. The rage has hit the campus with full force, and everything from cigarette-case holders to size 44 sweaters are being made by our enterprising coeds. For instance, Jerry Glas, A&S sophomore, is now in the midst of knitting a 50-inch tie for her fiance Joe Kaiser who is in (iermany. Though we considered this lather long, she immediately informed us that "every self-respecting tie is of about the same length." Jerry, by the way, has already finished the socks to match the tie, but admitted that her sister Jo Ann had turned the heel for her: (To all you laymen who know not what it means to turn a heel, we advise that you get yourselves a knitting book and study up on it.) Jo Ann, who is an A&S freshman, is quite proficient at the art, already having three pairs of socks, one sweater and a tie to her credit. "I'm now working on a pair of socks for a friend at 5.L.1.," she saidi "but unfortunately he'll be able to wear only one at a itme for awhile since he's recovering from a broken leg." However, she added that they would last twice as long that way. Nora Gibbens, A&S freshman, has even knitted some with SAK down the sides for her boy friend, Jerry Redmann. "I always thought the way to a man's heart was through hi* • totnach," laughed Meme Montagnet, A&S freshman, "but I guess they'd rather be presented with a hand-made sweater than a home-cooked meal." But we're not quite sure that her steady, Jay Potter, who happened to be listening in, quite agreed with this bit of philosophy.A&S freshmen Virginia Rowell and (ilailys Sbisa are among those fanatics who would rather knit than eat. "I can spend hours at a time at it without getting bored," demonstrated Gladys, while we saw evidence of Virginia's accomplishment! in a pair of gloves, which are most difficult. She can also claim seven pairs of socks, a tie, and the aforementioned cigaretti- case holder to her credit. Still working on their first pair of socks are Carol Olivier and Corinne Gately, A&S sophomores, and Mary Brown, A&S freshman. On the speedy side, Mary finished her first sock in only two weeks, which we believe might possibly be a world's record for the "First" sock, since others confessed that theirs had taken them on the LOYOLA'S NEWEST CLUB is the Coed'* Knitting Society. Some of the greater enthusiasts for the latest fad on the campus are, from lower right counter-clockwise, JOANNE GLAS, MARY BROWN, MEME MONTAGNET, JERELYN GLAS, CORINNE GATELY, GLADYS SBISA, VIRGINIA ROWELL, NORA CIBBENS, and CAROL OLIVER. Jerelyn and Corinne are holding a 50-inch tie, intended for Joe Kai.er, which Jerelyn claims is the normal size for any self-respeeting tie. (See SHEEN, page 8) (See KNITTING, page 2) CONDOLENCES The Maroon staff extend* its sympathy to Mr. and Mn Frank Demarest on the recent death of their daughter.
