Chapman Sees Democratic Sweep Jack Kennedy will probably be the happiest, most relieved man in the whole U.S. on Nov. 6, if the Rev. C. C. Chapman, S.J., is right again. With the political prognosticators and syndicated columnists still muttering their indecisions, it is a relief to find an expert unafraid to pick a winner. Father Chapman foresees a large Democratic majority and gives the basis for his predictions. Page 3 Brace Yourselves! Here Come Exams Say, you!

Father Boggs Suggests New Parking Solutions By EUGENE KATSANIS The Student Council and the dean of students took action this week toward solving the number one campus gripe—parking. Both agree, more or less, on the same solutions to the problem. In a letter to the Very Rev. W. Patrick Donnelly, S.J., university president, the Rev. Robert L. Boggs, S.J., dean of students, made the following suggestions to possibly ease the parking problem.1. Clear up the back of the music and law building* and turn that whole area into a parking lot. Clay Calhoun would donate the •hell*. 2. Open up the area near the fence adjacent to the Holy Name school. 3. The construction of "pigeon hole" parking. This would support SO or 60 cars in a small area and pay for itself over a period of time. This type of parking is used by many schools that are located near downtown area*. 4. Leave the faculty parking like it is. Despite a few complaints the faculty parking is better than under the name system.Roland Doucet, Council president, said that he wrote to three colleges who had parking problems like Loyola's and had solved them. "These schools promised at the NSA congress to send me information about how they solved their parking problems after their orientation programs that end this week," Doucet said. Schools involved are the University of Minnesota, which solved the parking problem by building 24 pigeon-hole parking lots, Mc- Calister College in St. Paul and Pritt Institute in the center of New York City, which solved their difficulty by setting parking space on rented lots next to' the college. Doucet said that when he gets the information he will make an appointment with Father Donnelly to discuss the situation. He said that he doesn't want the students to think that he is not working on the parking problem, but that he is collecting information before he begins work on it. TGIF Parties Start Oct. 28 A "Thank-God-Ifs-F r i d a y" dance will be sponsored by the Student Council on alternate Fridays, beginning next Friday, Oct. 28, in the cafeteria, from 3 till S p.m. A committee has been formed by the council to take care of the dance, and several interested students have volunteered to help the committee. Committee members are: Pam Leak, chairman; Bert Goodier; and Emmet Pugh. D. E. Nicholson is a student volunteer to the committee. The council requests the whole-hearted support of the student body for this activity. Sympathy The Maroon wishes to extend its sympathy to the Society of Jesus and the family and friends of the Rev. James E. Veale, S.J., who died suddenly Saturday in Albuquerque, N. M. Sympathy also to Miss Laurie Ohlmeyer, registrar of the dental school, on the death of her mother.

The story, which is centered around the joys and tragedies of a typical, small town, Grover's Corner, New Hampshire, is considered a classic of American drama. The town is any town, the people any people, Cast in the leading roles are Rita Cabes, A&S sophomore, as Emily Webb, and Bill Lorenzen, A&S senior, as George Gibbs. They portray childhood sweethearts whose tragic separation in death symbolizes the play's theme: appreciation of life. Others in the cast include: Ed Booker, A&S junior, stage manager; Betty Lou Killian and Ray Garrity, A&S seniors, portraying Dr. and Mrs. Gibbs; Renee Desommes and Jeff Hemstreet, A&S freshmen, as Mr. and Mrs. Webb.

Mr. Scranton Mouton, instructor in speech, is in charge of technical direction with the assistance of Ted Gallagher, Thespian president; John Lopiccolo, past president; and Ken Killian, club treasurer. Mrs. Leo Zinser will assist in costuming. Other plays scheduled this season include: "The Rivals," by Richard Brinsley Sheridan; "Everyman," a medieval morality play; and Tennessee William's "The Glass Menagerie." According to Gallagher, emphasis this year will be on the modern play, except Everyman, to encourage enthusiasm and attendance. He also said that a number of male characters will be needed to fill parts and anyone interested should watch for tryout announcements.Other officers for this year are Bill Lorenzen, vice president; Brenda Cherami, secretary; Ken Killian, treasurer; and Suzy Casey, historian.
