NSA President Backs Sit-In Demonstrations By EUGENE KATSANIS Dick Rettig, National Student Association, president, told the Student Council Tuesday that NSA would defend any student that would participate in lunch counter sit-in demonstrations. "Students that would become involved in sit-ins would be supported by the association; there would be no question about it," Rettig said. Rettig said that NSA is definitely for integration of schools on all levels and encourages it through its human relations program.He also defended NSA against questions of Communist elements running the organization. He denied that the Communiits had any power in NSA or that NSA is in any way connected with Communiim or subversive activity. He admitted that he knew of Communists attending the national congresses, but that they did not do anything in policy-making nor could they do anything because of the arrangement of the association. In his speech to the Council he said that NSA is expanding their research on student government problems into the fields of bookstores, health facilities, insurance plans for students and student wages. Rettig is a graduate of Washington University with a degree in history and speech. Formally he served as West Coast program vice president and chairman of the great Northwest region. NSA would not contradict the policies or rules of the university, the president said, but if a school would condemn or suspend a student the NSA wuold be obligated to come to his defense. "We would provide legal defense for the student or re-locate the student in another school," Law School To Hold Award Day Tuesday Outstanding students in the Loyola law school will be honored Tuesday at 8 p.m. in the student lounge. Law school dean Antonio Papale will announce the awardi merited by law students during the past year. All students are invited to the Awards Night program sponsored by the Loyola Student Bar Association. Rettig said. He «aid that the aaaociation would poaaibly provide a acholarahip for the atudent if neceaaary to enable him to continue hia education. He was asked how he expects to get southern membership which is very poor in NSA with policies that are in direct conflict with Southern attitude and which are violently opposed by southern students.Rettig replied that he doesn't care if he loses southern membership because of NSA's policies. He is not interested in those opposed to racial integration. In defense of attacks that NSA could be communistic infiltrated, Rettig said that it was "absolutely false." He said President Eisenhower, Vice President Richard Nixon and President Elect Jack Kennedy have come out in support of NSA. "Communiam is not effective on college campuaea although ... the inside story Reds Are Driving For Top Spot Ex-Communist Warns Americans By BERT EMKE Douglas Hyde, a short, jut-jawed British ex-communist, has a marvelous sense of humor, even when speaking on such a sinister subject as world Communism. His "homey" anecdotes about life as an editor on the London Daily Worker lightened the first Loyola Forum of the year, but Hyde was quick to warn his audience that the vigorous "religious" fervor of modern Communists may very well push the U.S.S.R. into a world-wide driver's seat. For a run-down on this amusing, if somewhat chilling lecture, turn to— Page 2 ☆ ☆ ☆ Modern Gloom Lifted By Philosophy Talk There's a lot of gloom spread around these days about how sick and frustrated the human race is. The way the pessimists talk no one is happy anymore. The Rev. Joseph H. Fichter, S.J., chairman of the sociology department, brought a little light on the subject in his Philosophy Club lecture last night. Man's individual and social aptitudes are discussed and it would seem he's not such a wretched soul after all. Page 3 ☆ ☆ ☆ Foul Play Disrupts Date Book Operation Like a pit full of snarling jungle cats campus organizations for several years now have clashed in a series of unnecessary, angry battles revolving around that much abused record of conflict, the Date Book. Initiated to end confusion in extra - curricular activities, the Date Book can work only if the rules governing its usage are followed. Hil Leibe takes a long look at this paper battlefield on— Pa«e 4 Talent Nite To Feature 7 Groups 17 Acts Selected For 'Key' Event Seventeen student acts have been selected to compete for individual, group and skit honors in the 23rd annual Blue Key Talent Night, Dec. 8, in the Fieldhouse.

Coeds chosen for the court are Maria Estrada, sociology senior, from Galveston, Texas; Judy Haydel, secondary education sophomore, from Houma, La.; Connie Marquer, BA sophomore, from New Orleans; Peaches Moreau, BA senior, from Lake Charles; Kay Poole, political science junior, from New Orleans. Betty Jewet of New Orleans was chosen as maid from the evening division. The court will be officially presented to the student body at the Blue Key Talent Night in December. They will also participate in the Homecoming ceremonies. Voting in the campus court election was "very heavy" with one-third more ballots cast than in last year's election, Pete Fenner, elections committee chairman, said. The larger volume of voting was contributed to the fact that voting was so vitally stressed in the national election. Fenner said that a spirit of national feeling was certainly a fact. Fenner reported that there was illegal campaigning for coeds nominated to the court. He said that handbills were printed and distributed by a group of students from the law school. Law school president, Joseph Conino, denied any knowledge of illegal practices going on in his . school. The Student Council constitution forbids anyone to campaign for nomination or election to Campus Court, with the exception of Council publicity for the election. "The campaigning, however, had no effect on the outcome of the election," Fenner said. "There was no change in the trend of the nominations where no campaigning was done." The council referred the investigation of the matter to the constitution committee. Others nominated for the court were Nancy Amato, A&S sophomore; Tressie Baccus, A&S senior; Maria Cicero, A&S senior; Jeannie Jones, A&S sophomore; Brenda Levy, BA sophomore; Sharon Winn, A&S sophomore.
