The Maroon Vol. XXXIX Loyola University, New Orleans, Friday, February lD 1963 No. 12 Council Defines Court Procedures By VICKI GAMBOA Outlines 12 Points Judicial Court rules and procedures, presented to the Student Council by chief justice Gerard Hansen at the Student Council meeting Tuesday, require that copies of all Council and administration regulations be kept on the first and second floors of the library for permanent use. "It will be more convenient for the students to use," said Hansen, "if the rules are in the library than if they were printed and distributed." Court procedures requires that the names of all violators be turned in with the violation and all evidence that can be used in prosecuting them. Should the Court find the evidence sufficient to try the defendant, a subpoena will be sent to the person or organization giving the time, place, and date of the trial. The subpoena will also state the nature of the violation and the possible penalties that it incurs. Failure to appear in Court at the time and date designated, will be considered contempt of Court. Subsequently the accused is subject to both the maximum fine or disciplinary action by the administration. Such action will also be taken should the accused, if found guilty, fail to comply with the Court punishment within the time allotted. • DEFENSE The defendant is allowed to bring any student he wishes to defend him. The Court prosecutor will be selected from law school by the members of the Court. The accuser must also be present at the hearing. After the trial the Court will recess for whatever period of time they feel necessary to reach a decision. When the decision has been reached the accused will be called back into court. If guilty, the penalty will be administered according to the Loyola Constitution, By-laws and "L" Book. Penalties for violations may be found in Title Two of the Loyola Statues of Procedures which will be kept in the library. • MAY APPEAL A violator may appeal the decision of the Court to the Student Council. No case may be reconsidered without a two-thirds vote of approval by the Council. The only exception to this procedure will be the Traffic Division. It will operate under the procedure presently in effect. At the Council meeting, Matt Rice, chairman of the parking committee, announced that the committee was working to remove the two-hour parking signs on Palmer St. Due to opposition from the Palmer St. residents, it was suggested that a compromise be reached, if not remove the signs, to extend the time limit to fourhours. This would give students time to park in the morning and move their cars at noon. As a possible solution to the parking problem, a re-marking of the present lot boundaries and the use of the area occupied by the present men's dormitories after the completion of the new dorm, were suggested. The committee anticipates faculty support for the demolition of the old dorms. The committee is also trying to have the stop sign at the corner of Loyola and Palmer Streets removed.• DORM CURFEW Under discussion at the meeting was the question of having a curfew for the residents of the boys' dorm now under construction. Council member Lynn Friedman, prefect of one of the present girls' dormitories, asked that the council speak to the administration about the removal of the planned 11:30 and 2.00 curfews. Objections were raised to the fact that living in the dorms is compulsory for all out-of-town students. One objection was based on the fact that some out-of-town male students have adjusted their budgets to apartment living and that the $450 semestral cost of dorm living may cause some to drop out of the university. • DATE BOOK Kurt Sinns, chairman of the date book committee, suggested an amendment of the Date Book that makes definite the rule eliminating formals held on the same date. It passed by a unanimous vote. The revision of this ordinance, Article three section three, reads as follows: "No social fraternity or social sorority may hold a spring or winter formal (changed from: any event) on the same date or overlapping time as an annual spring or winter formal given by another sorority or fraternity, except with special permission of the Date Book Committee. However a fraternity or sorority may hold a doted function without the permission of the Date Book Committee."• COTILLION Because the date of the Freshman Sweetheart Cotillion fell during the Lenten season, the CotillionCotillion will be held on February 16 in the Coker Room, announced Dave Cambre, president of the freshman class. Due to the change, the band has not been decided upon. Tickets will go on sale Monday.Cambre was sworn into the Council at this meeting. Don Jansen, in charge of the freshman committee, announced that the tie for treasurer between Fred Graefe and Jim Conway was finally resolved. Fred Graefe was chosen treasurer of the freshman class, and Jim Conway was appointed chairman of the Cotillion committee.• HONOR SYSTEM It was moved and seconded that a committee be organized to investigate the probability of establishing an honor system at Loyola. If in effect the system would require an oath taken by all students not to cheat and to report those who do. The motion passed by an 18-5 vote with one abstention. Gerry Rault was appointed chairman of the investigating committee. Don Jansen moved that the Council send a petition to the Rev. Edward A. Doyle, S.J., evaluating the violations of Prep Week rules and giving the Council's recommedations on the issue. Jansen based his motion on formal quizzes and papers due at this time and of the ROTC sponsored ball game held in the middle of Prep Week. Jansen was appointed chairman of the committee to draft the petition.The Council plans to look into the possibility of granting students with a 3.5 average the privilege of taking unlimited cuts. Bill Triplett, chairman of the student recommendations committee, announced that the committee would make a series of campus polls on various questions. • EVALUATION Evaluation committee spokesman, Bert Harris, said that the evaluation of the English department would be carried on through questionnaires distributed in the philosophy classes two or three weeks before mid-semester exams. The committee would then evaluate the statistics and publish their findings in April. Council president, Jack Dardis, appointed a pay raise committee and a social investigating committee. The pay raise committee will look into the possibility of having the pay of student assistants on work scholarships, raised. The social investigating committee will investigate the rumor that Loyola is a so-called 'party campus.. The main objective of the committee is to check into campus organizations to see if they are holding too many parties and not enough lectures. The investigations will not include social organizations as their main purpose is social functions. During the next semester, the publicity committee will put up a bulletin board in Marquette hall and improve the intramural bulletin board. Joe Perez, chairman, stated that the Council flysheet will once again be circulated. His committee plans to post the sheet on the bulletin board and to put copies in the lockers. Lee Miller, chairman of the election committee, reported that an election for a representative of dental school and of music school will have to be held. Fellini Film To Run Sun.

The all-seeing eye of Joe Lobo and the bleary ones of students testify to a bit of welching on the part of some profs. For Lobo's grand expose, turn to . . . page 2 • The Wolfettes have been disbanded, on the pretext that they are too "high-schoolish." But the cost to school spirit, maintains editor Lucien Salvant ,far outweighs any lack of professionalism on the part of these unselfish coed leaders.
