Chep's The Man Editorial DeLesseps 'Chep' Morrison is formally endorsed for the public office of governor of Louisiana by The Loyola Maroon. The Maroon believes that Morrison's experience in the three major levels of government—local, state, and national plus his record of achievements as mayor of New Orleans coupled with his sound political platform made him the logical and best choice in the present gubernatorial race. Here are some of the many things that Morrison has personally committed himself to do for Louisiana if elected governor: • Place special emphasis on industrial development so as to provide more and better jobs, higher incomes, and to alleviate unemployment • Support a Code of Ethics for all State employees• Advocate preferential primaries for Presitntial candidates to give the people complete sedom of choice • Provide research and promotion to develop riculture, forestry, wildlife and fishing and naral resources of oil, gas and other minerals • Increase funds for colleges and universities • Remove our Charity hospital system from politics and operate it on a professional basis • Institute a modern mental health program with special emphasis on the care of the handicapped and retarded Beginning his political career as a precinct captain in the 19 3 6 gubernatorial campaign, the New Roads Louisianian consequently worked hard in various goodgovernment groups during the next four years until he was elected to the state legislature i n 1949 from New Orleans' The administration whip in the House of Representatives, he wrote the bill introducing voting ma- chines in New Or- After his return from overseas service, Morrison ran for mayor of New Orleans and won. In 1959 he was reelected. For 16 years, Morrison served New Orleans as mayor. During this time, he gave our city such outstanding leadership that he was cited by TIME magazine as the "most progressive American mayor of the decade (1940-50) for his work in cleaning up New Orleans and making it a thriving industrial and trade center."

In 1949, Morrison was elected president of the Inter-American Municipal Association (includes countries in Northern and Southern hemispheres) having previously been the American Municipal Association national president in 1940. In 1948. he was chosen by the National Junior Chamber of Commerce as one of America's outstanding young men. BECAUSE OF HIS EFFORTS in furthering a better understanding and trade with Latin American nations during his tenure as New Orleans mayor, Morrison was appointed as the United States' first ambassador to the Organization of American States on June 13, 1961. During the 27 months in which he served as OAS ambassador the 51 year old Morrison was a major force in uniting the Latin American nations against communism. CHEP MORRISON Organizations Help To Pick Miss Wolf Some coed on the Loyola campus will be Miss Wolf of 1963. Campus organizations will once again have an opportunity to help elect a Miss Wolf by nominating coeds which they feel meet the qualifications. Miss Wolf is a combination of beauty and brains and a coed very much in the picture of extra-curricular activities. She is just an "all around" gal. MISS WOLF appears in the "favorites" section of the Wolf annual and represents the "ideal girl" type of coed on the Loyola campus. Any organization may nominate a coed or coeds by submitting her name and background information to the Wolf by December 19. Each nomination must be accompanied by signatures of 20 fulltime Loyola students. All signatures must be different and accompany each nomination. In other words, a student may not sign for more* than one nominee. An organization making a nomination must show "why" the coed should be Miss Wolf for 1964. FINALISTS will be selected from the nominees by members of the Wolf staff and announced in The Maroon of February 7. Miss Wolf will then be selected by annual staffers and faculty members. Faculty judges will be announced later. She will be presented to the student body sometime later this year.
