The LOYOLA MAROON Vol. XXXIV Loyola University, New Orleans, La., Friday, October 19, 1956 No. 4 Delay Almost Cost Coed Sena Club Scholarship By MARILYN HALL Procrastination is a sin ! Just ask A&S freshman Carolyn Brandt and she will tell you why. The pretty 17-year-old miss just recently walked off with a $250 scholarship from the Serra Club, a Catholic business men's organization, for writing a winning essay. "The whole trouble," Carolyn exclaimed, "is that I almost forgot to enter the contest, because I kept putting it off 'til tomorrow." i—— Carolyn, who was graduated from Sacred Heart High School, entered the essay contest at the end of her senior year, but didn't get in her paper until deadline day. Her essay, which had to be written on any phase of a religious vocation, was entitled "Following Jesus and Mary." "The rules stated that the winner would be informed as soon as possible," Carolyn added, "and by the end of the summer, I just thought the contest was oyer." Yet, the contest wasn't over, for on the very day Carolyn registered for Loyola, she received a call from Francis Doyle, president of the club, to inform her that she had been awarded a $260 scholarship to any Catholic university of her choice—only this young lady had already made her choice just a few hours before at Loyola University. "I was shocked," Carolyn exclaimed, "yes, just plain shocked!" Along with the scholarship presentation came a special treat for the co-ed. It was a luncheon at the Creole Room in the Roosevelt Hotel, where the presentation was made. "I'm very glad I chose Loyola," the winner said, "for I've enjoyed every minute here." Carolyn, who was president of the Student Council and Catholic Student's Mission Crusade in high school, seems to be taking the lead once more in college. She was just recently chosen a cheerleader for the Pep Squad, of which she is also a member, in a tryout competition. "That too was a surprise," Carolyn said, "but I'm thrilled to be a Loyola cheerleader." The co-ed, who is majoring in Spanish with hopes to be a Spanish teacher, is also a member of the Pan-American Club and Lambda Sigma Lambda, service sorority."I only hope," she smiled, "that my years at Loyola will be as wonderful as these first few weeks have been." THE SMILE THAT ALMOST WASN'T it displayed by pretty CAROLYN BRANDT whoie delaying almost lost her a scholarship. Her inclination to procrastinate led her to wait until the last minute before entering an essay contest with a scholarship prise. But, she entered, won and there's her smile of triumph.

Ex-Loyolan Gets Dream Job In Korea Fusan, Korea: It's an important, respected position in a clinic handling BiO patients a day. fter 10 years you get a six month vacation (or "rentation") back in the St&*«»« **•■ return for another Oh, one other thing . . . there are no monetary gains. "Thumbs down!" you might say, but to a petite Maryknoll sister from New Orleans, a former Loyola coed, the assignment is an exciting "dream come true." A Maryknoll Sister of St. Dominic, Sister Anne Carmel, O.P.— formerly Elizabeth Kaupp, Loyola medical technology major—renewed friendships on the campus this week with former classmate Mary Flo Schieb Simonson, now an instructor in medical technology, and Dr. John G. Arnold, chairman of the department. Dressed in the trim gray habit and black veil of her order, Sitter Anne Carmel, who it the daughter of Mr. and Mr*. C. J. Kaupp, 2617 Verbina St., talked enthusia.ticnlly of her new ai•ignment.To her it is the beginning of a long dreamed of career. She will leave New Orleans Friday, Oct. 26 for Kansas City where she will study the newest laboratory equipment prior to departingdeparting San Francisco, Nov. 2, for Korea. Shipping from the Golden Gate city aboard a small freighter, the "Indian Bear," may sound like Jack London adventure, but it is only the beginning of a mission labor of love and sacrifice for this Maryknoll nun. Along with five others—two doctors, two nurses, and one X-ray technician—she will join a staff of 26 missionaries at the Maryknoll clinic in Pusan, Korea, where 2,000 patients are treated each day. Sitter Anne Carmel will do general laboratory work in the clinic, wKere tuberculosis and parasitic diaeases ar* prominent. And although the chances of a a missionary contracting a parasitic disease over the ten year tour of duty is imminent, the little sister is only worried about getting seasick. She has never really been on a ship, and since the Pacific crossing takes 21 days with one stop at Japan, she is taking along plenty of dramamine and crackers. "Crackers," she explained, will help keep her from getting seasick according to "expert advice from sea-going missionaries." Because of the great need of missionaries in Korea and the publicity focused on that country and its problems, Sister Anne Carmel "always hoped to go to Korea as a missionary." She was on her way to becoming a doctor at the medical school of Marquette University when the Korean assignment came. In 1948, as Elizabeth Kaupp, a Mount Carmel High School graduate, she wanted to be a missionary nun, working in a medical field, so she applied for entrance to the Maryknoll Order. The Maryknolls instructed her to wait a year and then re-apply if she still wanted to be a missionary.So in 1948 she entered Loyola as a student of medical technology, and determined to be a missionary, one year later joined the Maryknolls."I trained at the Mother House in Ossining, N. Y., the home of the Maryknolls and Sing Sing," he laughed. It is with such faith, determination, and sense of humor that Sister Anne Carmel will begin her life in a foreign mission, her "dream come true." DREAM COME TRUE iD the reaction of SISTER ANNE CARMEL, 0.P., former Loyola med-tech, to her 10 year missionary assignment in Korea. Here she discusses it with DR. ARNOLD, chairman of the department of technology. Although she will be working with contagious diseases, Sister Carmel is only worried about becoming sea-sick on the way over. Fr. Pro Book Dedicated To Father Butt A teaching brother at Holy Cross High has dedicated a book on the storied Father Miguel Pro, S.J., victim of the Mexican anti-Catholic persecution, to the martyr's theologate companion, the Rev. Joseph A. Butt, S.J., regent of the college of business administration. Brother Roberto, C.S.C., dedicates his short "Dawn Follows the Glory" to Father Butt with the words "Dedicated to Father Joseph A. Butt, S.J., whose assistance has made this book possible." Father Butt and Father Pro were together in theologate at Barcelona, Spain during the 1923-24 term. Because of illness, Father Pro was sent to Belgium for the completion of hi* studies and ordination. The -famous priest then returned to his native Mexico in July of 1926 at the beginning of the persecution instigated under President Plutarco Elias Calles. He traveled through Mexico using numerous subterfuges to skirt the law which made exercise of priestly functions a capital offfense. Accused of an assasination attempt on former president, Alvaro Obregon, the Jesuit was cut down by a firing squad of Calles' federal troops Nov. 23, 1927. His beatification is now under consideration in Rome. Brother Roberto relied on Father Butt for data on his subject's life and for "color" incidents. He has authored several brochures. The work is now being published by The Notre Dame Press. To Launch Drive St. Appolonia Sodality is preparing to launch its annual Christmas card drive for the Ceylon missions and the Negro missions near Grand Coteau, the Rev. John F. Keller, S.J., chaplain of the school of dentistry, announced.

All For Love Rehearsals In 2nd Week Rehearsals for "All For Love," starring Reginald Hendry, A&S junior, as Antony, and Gloria deßram, AS senior, as Cleopatra, are now in their second week with no production date yet announced. Supporting roles include George Hoag, A&S senior, as Ventidius; John Wilmot, BA sophomore, as Dolabella; and Joel Larkin, A&S junior, as Octavia. A simplified and concentrated retelling of Shakespeare's original "Antony and Cleopatra," this play is considered John Dryden's finest work, Leo C. Zinser, director, said. Action is confined to the last phase of Antony's career when he is besieged in Alexandria by Octa v i us Caesar's Roman fleet. The conflict envolves Ventidius, his general, Dolabella, his friend, and Octavia, his wife, on the one side, and Cleopatra, his paramour, on the other in a struggle for Antony's soul. The former are on the point of success and an agreement is to be made with Octavius involving the separation of the two lovers, when Antony falls into jealous suspicions, fearing Dolabella will supplant him in Cleopatra's affections. Meantime, the Roman forces are pressing hard, and the Egyptian fleet threatens defection. False reports that Cleopatra has taken her life reach Antony, who falls on his own sword in despair. To complete the tragic picture, Cleopatra finds him dead and takes her life by applying an asp to her arm. Bill Longfellow, BA senior, is in charge of production, and Bill Louree, A&S junior, in charge of lights.
