Freshmen Marooned During HELL Week By MARIA GAMBOA It's that time of year again for fro s h to wear maroon beanies and swing, into a life of early morning cram sessions and No-Doz nightcaps as they adjust to the normalities of college life. If it can be called living. After the warm welcome and the stepped-up social life of orientation week, the freshmen regard Hell Week an oversize nightmare. It isn't as bad as it seems. It's worse. All that can be done is to grit one's teeth and bear it. It may be Friday, but Hell Week is far from over. To the frosh, wearing purple lipstick and a band-aid in the middle of their foreheads, the harassing of the past few days will seem like fun in comparison of what is yet to come. A compulsory convocation this afternoon will climax the initiation ritual that began Monday morning. The upperclass brew of good, clean fun was mixed with the latest concoction of mud, maple syrup, food coloring, eggs and vaseline—with a dash of revenge left over from last year for seasoning. What could be more fun to a freshman that to stumble around the mud hills behind the fieldhouse blindfolded, as goo d-natured upperclassmen plaster them from all sides with their ungodly mess? FRESHMEN BOYS are easy to recognize. They are the ones in white shirts and maroon beanies. They wear suspenders because they can't wear belts. They wear bow-ties, but they don't have any socks. Freshmen girls also wear maroon beanies (to match their purple lipstick, probably). Their shoes don't match each other, but that is to draw attention away from their funny green socks. They prefer paper flowers behind their right ear more than make-up which they don't wear. For the past week, some 450 freshmen from 25 states and several foreign countries, have been at the beck and call of upperclassmen. They have been plagued by pies thrown in their faces and have pushed peanuts across the quadrangle with their noses. All of this, they are made to do for some minor infraction of university ethics (such as stepping on the hallowed seal, failing to carry an upperclassman's books, not smiling sweetly enough.) HELL WEEK follows closely on the heels of a more enjoyable period of frosh frolic, orientation week. This somber introduction to scholastic and party morals required at Loyola, was chocked full of social get-togethers. What could be more romantic than the mosquito-infested sun porch at Tulane university —especially on a gloomy night. Undaunted by the horrid feeling of being eaten alive, freshmen managed to mingle with their new classmates, and with the numerous disguised upperclassmen who crashed the party. All-in-all, with dancing and swimming the frosh grit their teeth and kept on smiling.It never rains, but it pours —especially when the frosh planned their hayride. Rain or no rain, the party rolled on to City Park for a night of dancing and cold watermelon and that blood-thirsty pestilence on wings. A night with the girls was athletically sponsored by the upperclassmen as the boys attended a meet the faculty stag party in the student lounge. Freshmen girls got a chance to compete in volleyball and other sports at the annual playnight.When all the socializing and city tours were over, the frosh received the Student Council code of honor at the Mass of the Holy Spirit. This Loyola tradition opened the 52nd academic year of the university. THIS YEAR'S crop of new blood represents the widest geographical range in the university's history, remarked the Very Rev. Andrew C. Smith, S.J., university president, at an early freshmen convocation. APO, Thirty Club Offer Top Films Cannes Winner Sunday It appears as though APO and the Thirty club are trying to outdo each other in bringing top motion pictures to the campus.

Student director of both film series is John Carver, business administration sophomore. He is to be assisted by Em bo lay a sock* and frasongs are the nts of the annual Jambalaya party tomorrow night at 8 p.m. This traditional end of Hell Week will also be rh» official start of fraternity |ttsf|» Jam Session Tomorrow tiet ready to stomp your feet so hard and enjoy rself so much that you may have to be carried to a king chair and have your happy, but aching feet itly placed in a small tub of soothing ointments. So that freshmen who haven't weathered completly the storm of initiation and the end of Frosh Hell Week may regain their senses, the fun in mind is the annual Jambalaya to be celebrated tomorrow night from 8 to 12 in the fieldhouse. COMPETITION is running high among the four social fraternities for honors in the songfest as it does for everything from girls to intramurals. Frat members have been anticipating the festivities and have let their imaginations go wild in the lyric department.The fraternities will use their own form of satire to socially initiate freshmen to all pars of campus life and college departments. The satire will be appreciated by upperclassmen as well because they have a closer view of activi- LAST YEAR, ...ÜBL won with their song of campus life and institutions, hitting the ROTC, the cafeteria and bookstore with hurricane like force, thereby breaking the three year winning streak of Beggars. You can be sure that Beggars will be working to come out on top again. Variety spiced the songfest with other melodies about the coed inhabitants of our campus and the city of New Orleans before and after the DA's office cracked down on the overdose of vice made so readily available to the citizens.SWINGING music will be played by David Reynolds and his six-piece Negro band. During intermission, the fraternities will sing out to the "captured" audience. The Jambalaya is a fitting climax to Student Council sponsored Frosh Hell Week and is the official kickoff for fraternity rush season. It is a great blessing for those who have been searching for fun and entertainment at a reasonable cost. Since the admission is free, the only cost is that you let yourself go and freely blend in with the goings on. FOR THOSE ...of you who tire easily after trying to keep up with the band and require liquid refreshment, it will be sold at nearby booths. The delicacy of the fieldhouse floor finish requires that socks be worn for such an occasion. Don't be embarrassed if you have a hole in your sock, because tomorrow night's crowd will probably stomp the bottoms right off their socks. When the clock strikes 12, the shining bare feet may outshine the hardwood floor. 'LU Easier Tour Than Berlin' ( New ROTC Commandant Says: By GUS MELENDEZ "After serving a tour of duty in Berlin during the hot tensions built up with the Berlin Wall, my assignment at Loyola may be a little peaceful," says Lt. Col. Robert Sabolyk, Loyola's new ROTC commandant. Col. Sabolyk held the post of provost marshal of the American sector in the divided city, coordinating the activities of the American and German police in his sector. His office was always busy because of the tense atmosphere between East and West Berlin.THE NEW COMMANDANT, who replaced Lt. Col. Henry Fee as head of the ROTC battle group, is a graduate of North Carolina State. He received an ROTC commission upon graduation in 1940. The Colonel said that the Wall was necessary to the East Berlin regime because they were losing all the white collar workers, the professionals and skilled people. He pointed out an article in the September 23, 1963 issue of U. S. News & World Report which states that "The Berlin Wall isn't airtight. A total of 2,700 East German police— equivalent to 23 companies of police—have fled to West Berlin across, under, or through the Wall since it was built two years ago." The Colonel said, "because of this border guards used on the Wall now must have close ties to East Berlin or come from other Red countries." "The Wall is composed of two barbed wire fences several feet apart. Guards are posted every 50 yards. This system of fencing permits the guard to catch anyone who may attempt to cross the Wall. If a refugee is able to get through the first wire fence, the guard will have returned by the time the refugee can get by the second wire fence," he said. COL. SABOLYK CONTENDS that there is a great need of small luxuries in East Berlin which the West considers commonplace. One day before the Wall was put up, the Colonel went golfing. He noted that his caddy who lived in the East had a large sack.
