Maroon No. 13 Vol. XXXVIII Loyola University, New Orleans, La., Friday, February 2, 1962 Pert Donna Breen to reign at Cotillion Pretty Donna Breen, A&S chemistry major, has been selected Sweetheart of the freshman class. Loyola's ninth Freshmen Sweetheart, Donna was elected over four other finalists in balloting held Thursday and Friday before final exams. Jeannette Theriot, music freshman, was runner-up. Others nominated were Dianne Holt, Nancy Lawler, and Elaine Wolfe, BA frosh. The s'-4" Donna will be presented at the Sweetheart Cotillion next Friday night in the VFW hall on Veterans highway. The brown-haired lass with sparkling brown eyes is scientifically-minded. It must run in the family, since her twin brother is studying physics at Tulane and she is majoring in chemistry. Donna is minoring in physics and her brother is doing the same in chemistry.She explains that the love of the kitchen and cooking prompted her to go into chemistry. "I just love to tinker in the kitchen. To pour, stir, and to make things. Chemistry as well as the kitchen lets me do this. I guess it's the domestic part of my personality coming out." A graaaate of Dominican high school, Donna still finds it hard to believe that she was chosen for the honor. "When some of my friends came into the library to tell me, I just couldn't believe them. I rushed over with them to the basement of Marquette hall where Mickey McGregor, A&S freshman president, confirmed my election."The first Freshmen Sweetheart, Jackie Keiffer, was elected in 1953. Others who have had the honor include Janet Perrault, 1954-55; Millie Marshall, 1955- 56; Jo Ann Zazulak, 1956-57; Yvonne Boeing, 1957-58; Kay Poole, 1958-59; Judy Haydel, 1959-60; and Beth Feehan, 1960- 61. : Frosh Sweetheart Hi there, sweetheart... Freshman sweetheart Donna Breen is a welcome sight in the morning for tore Frosh eyes as she alights from her cor with a bright smile which helped her to win the coveted title.

Garby terms charge of atheism, communism in NSA as libelous By GWEN SAN MARCO NSA is not an atheistic organization but it is possible to have a minority of atheistic members in the association according to National Student Association President Ed Garby. Garby discussed this issue and others as he addressed an audience of Student Council members and students and answered questions posed by the group at Tuesday's Council meeting. Garby termed the accusations that NSA was atheistic or communistic as "completely libelous slander." A Catholic himself, Garby noted that half of NSA officers are Catholics and you can't be Catholic and atheistic at the same time. "NSA has been attacked by extreme left wings to extreme right factions. The International Union of Students, a communistic group, has accused NSA of being imperialistic and reactionary," said Garby. "When you bring 1200 students from all types of schools together," emphasized the NSA head, "there's going to be practically every element in society present. "Any minority trying to control the association would be thoroughly defeated," he added. Garby had neither an affirmation or a negation in answer to the question regarding the legality and use of a referendum. Recently, there was an attempt at Loyola to vote NSA off campus. An interested student questioned Garby as to what rights the students possessed compared to the faculty. Also, when should the faculty intervene and if the students voted NSA on campus, who should vote it off? Garby professed he didn't know. Although Fr. Bogg's name was not mentioned, this student was obviously referring to the time, he overruled Council protests, that a referendum vote on NSA could not be held during the fall semester. "You're (students) much wiser in Loyola matters than I am," avowed Garby. "I believe that debate and full discussion can provide the only rational solution," he stated. "People say that NSA is wrong, rotten, but you can't rationalize without knowing about the association. What I dislike about referendums is that people don't have enough information to make decisions."Another student told Garby that when Student Council representatives are elected, the victors are chosen for popular appeal rather than political views. It was cited that the Council elects NSA delegates without lettingletting the student body know the delegates' political views. The student protested that Loyolans couldn't do anything about what the delegate does- at the NSA congress and therefore, this method of election was undemocratic. Garby, again left the matter up to Loyolans saying that he was not approving the election method and that it was up to the students to decide the method of NSA delegate elections. He did say though, that Loyola delegates to the congresses have shown exceptional leadership and that the university has made a contribution to NSA by its type of delegates. Previously NSA was featuring civil rights as its main project but Garby said that this year student welfare will be emphasized. He cited endeavors by NSA to negotiate a student insurance plan for all member schools whereby rates would be lowered and also lowering of rates by airlines for all students. NSA's crusade for civil rights will not be abandoned. According to the group's president, integration as viewed by NSA is "morally, socially, and legally correct." A continued drive for voters' rights and support of sit-ins will be pursued by NSA. Human dignity is one of the corners of NSA's foundation according to Garby. "Creation of college leaders, academic freedom, and annually making 1200 people think and form opinions on important topics plus eloquent speakers at enlightening seminars are the main achievements of NSA," stated Garby. The importance of the organization was exemplified by its president who said that NSA is on the Peace Corp advisory board and is the only student group on the Federal Education committee. Garby believes that NSA's chief purpose is to serve the student. Fighting against communism is another aim of the association which unites student leaders from Red infiltrated Latin America to troubled Africa and Asia. By taking a stand on world issues, NSA identifies itself with these countries' problems and thus draws the foreign students to America's side. Garby opined that if NSA doesn't identify itself with foreign students, the communists will.

Dave Wessel selected for US Peace Corps Eight week course set Loyola graduate David Wessel has been selected to participate in an eight-week training course in preparation for work with President Kennedy's newly-formed Peace Corps. Wessel, who completed his studies in the college of arts and sciences last month, will begin the eight-week course on February 5, and will enjoy a two-week leave before resuming training for five more weeks in Puerto Rico. If this is completed successfully, he will go on to a two-week orientation period and then get down to his real work as a teacher in the tiny country of Colombia. Wessel, who received his bachelor of science degree here in December applied for the position last June because, as his brother Bill put it, "He was interested in the Kennedy administration and in this program. He wanted to be sent to a foreign country, and he thought the Peace Corps work would be interesting." While he was here, Wessel minored in both political science and sociology. In his sophomore year he was a Student Council representative and chairman of the election committee. He had been a member of the university drama group, Thespians, and was an originator of the Loyola film series. A graduate of St. Patrick's high school in Miami Beach, Dave is currently visiting at his home in Miami Beach, Pla. He received the news of his acceptanceacceptance in the Corps in a letter Jan. 20 and signed by Sergeant Shriver who is in charge of the Peace Corps. The letter has been posted on the bulletin board in front of the office of Fr. Robert L. Boggs, S.J., dean of students, in the hope of encouraging other students to similarly support the program.
