A dance, basketball game or a cocktail party! This is no longer a question a c c ording to the recently revised Date Book by the Student Council. Because of the vague and misleading clauses contained within the former Date Book, several conflicts had arisen throughout the past year among organizations which seemed not only unfair but just plain frustrating to those wishing to attend all at one time. Setting your dates organizations? Take heed and read the new rules set down in full order. Page 7 Students Ponder Course Mixing Physics and Music? . . . Poetry and Math? . . . These are much needed combinations according to the opinions passed by students in answer to this week's poll question. To get a better idea of just why the liberal arts student studies science and the future scientist poetry read the answers passed by fellow classmates. Page S Harger Backs College Subsidies What good is physical strength without the employment of an equally strong mind? The need of more educated Americans is one of vital importance. Editor Kit Harger shows just how important this is when she refutes the chief argument against the subsidization of peace time veterans and comes up with the increasing benefits that will be derived from the passing of such a bill.

This was the general consensus of opinion among reliable ROTC sources. The match is being co-sponsored by Loyola and Tulane ROTC corps, with 43 teams competing in the two-Clay shoot-out on ranges located at Loyola, Tulane, and Camp Leroy Johnson. Kansas State, last year's winner in the affair, will be returning to defend its title from the other teams merging from Texas, Ohio, and Florida. Five men may represent each team. The five shooting for Loyola will be chosen from these seven members: Team Captain William Connick, Co- Captain Bryan Torres, Alex Ortolano, Paul LaNasa, Larry Lagarde, Tony Morse and Andrew Dawson. Assisting Loyola and Tulane in the match this weekend is the 349 th Transport Terminal Battalion of the United States Army. The trophies and medals which will be awarded to the winners in the various segments of the match will be on display in the Fieldhouse along with a scoreboard which will be up to date at all times showing how teams and individuals are faring. Loyola finished second in the 1958 match and fourth last year. Council Adopts Three Measures Measures were adopted by the Student Council at its regular meeting Tuesday in the student lounge.

Outburst On Race Problem Disrupts Council Meeting By DORIS GRITZMAN and EUGENE KATSANIS 'Shock' Proposal Moments before adjourning, Melvin Martynn, A&S senior, shocked the Council by asking them to take a stand on the city's public school crisis. After an ordinary meeting, con- fusion engulfed the council. Dennis Yeager, in an attempt to bring the unprecedented debate to order, made a motion that the Council take a stand on the issue. The Council, however, voted to table the motion until the next meeting on Feb. 21. Shortly after the meeting the Rev. Robert L. Boggs, S.J., mod- erator, stated that he was for the Council taking a stand and added that it was a "very fine motion." "The Student Council should oppose public apathy in regards to issues acute in our area. We should take some stand one way or another and we should strongly be in favor of civil rights." He further stated that the Council should be Catholic in their views, but regardless this is a good chance for them to be heard. If they vote wrong, then it is still their way of thinking, and it will then be up to us to try and teach them what is right. Martynn stated that friends from out of state who were criticizing Louisiana and Loyola motivated him to appear before the Council and employ them to take a stand. He said that we were receiving bad publicity particularly because people were under the impression that Loyola was avoiding the issue. "It's time someone in Louisiana took a stand, one way or another," explained Martynn. "The benefits of so doing would out-weigh the repercussions. Some Council members suggest- Ed that it wouldn't be their place to vote on an issue of this type for they could not know how the students they are representing felt on the question at hand. Thus any vote they gave would more than likely be one that expressed their personal opinion. A university-wide referendum was recommended but failed to gain any amount of favor. It was then suggested that the Council members take polls and surveys of the students in their colleges. Bill Caldwell, NSA representative, stated that the members of the Council were elected to a representative governing body and should speak for the constituents that they represent. He explained, however, that Council members should judge for themselves on what move was correct and vote with that in mind. Yeager said that Loyola should take stands on more outside matters for there is precedence here, namely the stand it took on the loyalty oath, and there is no one who says we can't. He also added that since young people are expressing themselves all over the country why shouldn't Loyola students make themselves heard? Hold Convocation For Vets, Feb. 21 An open convocation on the bill concerning federal education benefits for "peace time" veterans will be held Thursday, Feb. 21, at noon in Marquette Auditorium, Miss Susan Thompson, veterans counselor, announced.Murray Jones, member of the state board of education for the education of veterans, will speak on the bill which would provide one and a half days of education for every one day of active duty in the service to those who entered service after Jan. 31, 1956.
