The Loyola Maroon No. 12 Vol. XXXVIII Loyola University, New Orleans, La., Friday, February 3, 1961 Clem Sehrt Heads Alumni Campaign Clem H. Sehrt, New Orleans attorney, will serve as general chairman of the university's 1961 Alumni Endowment Fund campaign. The kickoff dinner will be held Feb. 19 at Loyola with more than 350 of the 600 class agents expected to attend. Speakers at the kickoff dinner will include the Very Rev. W. Patrick Donnelly, S.J., president of Loyola, the Rev. Edward Doyle, S.J., dean of arts and sciences, and the Rev. Joseph Butt, S.J., alumni moderator. F. Winter Trapolin, president of the Alumni Association, Walter B. Hamlin, association justice of the Louisiana Supreme Court and Sehrt will be toastmasters of the dinner. Sehrt received his law degree from Loyola in 1932. He was a star tackle on the Loyola football squad and was named most valuable player on the 1930 team. He is a member of both the board of directors of the National American Bank and of the Program of Progress committee of Loyola. From 1948 to 1952 he served as general counsel for the state banking department of Louisiana.Sehrt said that there has been a dramatic growth in alumni support of colleges and universities throughout the country. He pointed out that Loyola's campaign last year under the direction of Judge Thomas Brahney broke all records with 2,050 alumni contributing $34,992. The previous year's totals were 1,526 contributors and $26,898 in contributions. "Alumni here and throughout the country are increasingly aware that private colleges and universities wage an unending battle with rising costs and increasing needs," Sehrt said. "Additional support from alumni and other sources must be forthcoming if they are to continue their vital role in higher education," he said. "At Loyola our goal for alumni giving in 1961 is 3,000 contributors." CLEM H. SEHRT the Inside Story By HIL LEIBE Burdick Answers 'Yes' To Important- Question Will America win its battle for respect among the countries of Southeast Asia? Eugene Burdick, co-author of "The Ugly American," answers ye* to this question. Speaking before the Loyola Forum, Mr. Burdick admitted that the United States ranks high in potential. But he confessed that proper motivation was sorely lacking. Read the report of his speech, as well as an exclusive interview with Mr. Burdick by a Maroon reporter. Page 3 Scribe Mokes Home In Gold Fish Bowl Would you like to live in a gold fish bowl? Columnist Janie Counihan thinks it's fun. You see, she lives in one of the university dorms. (Need I say more.) For an accurate and eye-opening look into the private life of a Loyola coed read this amusing story. "Home was never like this," shouts Janie, "and thank goodness for that." Page 4 Rifle Range Offers Coed Sharpshooters Yes-sir-re-bob, things are looking pretty good on the range— the rifle range, that is. It seems that Loyola's ROTC unit has started a girl's rifle team. Wha? Anyway, insiders report that the gals can shoot with deadly accuracy. Some have a 98 point average. So, what's their problem? There isn't any available coed teams to challenge.
