The LoyoLa Maroon TtL© Voio© of Loyola sine© 1923 40 th. Anniversary Vol. XL Loyola University, New Orleans, La., Friday, March 13, 1964 No. 16 NSA Referendum Voting on re-affiliation with NSA was cancelled by the Student Council at Tuesday's meeting because requirements of the motion which set up the vote were not fulfilled. The requirements of the original motion are: A) Provide for a referendum on the question of affiliation with NSA. B) That such a referendum be held at a convenient date during the second semester, the exact date being selected by the Elections committee and approved by the Council. C) That the president of the Council, with approval of the Council, appoint a committee of six interested students, three of whom are pro-NSA, and three of whom are anti- NSA, to present the respective viewpoints to the student body, and that the Council assist this committee in presenting their respective viewpoints to the student body. Main discussion centered on point "C." There was also discussion on whether a requisite of another motion has been met. That motion says that the debates be published and copies distributed to the evening division students.DISCUSSION started when Bob Jacques, law representative, asked that the original minutes be checked to see if a debate before the student body was required by the original motion. The minutes of the meeting at which the motion was presented, were at the home of Charles Foti, law representative.Jacques said that since no debates had been held, the "student vote" would be illegal. Parliamentarian Ed Carriere said that an educative process had been carried out through publicity and The Maroon, and this qualified as a debate. COUNCIL PRESIDENT, Frank Wagar then ruled that the vote must go on, since the requirements had been met. A speaker was introduced to talk on the Young Men's Business Club and thus gave Foti time to go home and get the minutes. Carriere said, that The Maroon stories were not full copies of the debate, as also required in the motion. Jacques read part of the motion from the minutes. It stated that mimeogrpahed copies be distributed to the evening division.CARRIERE said that since there had been no debate, there had been no copies printed for distribution. Jacques again said that no vote was able to be held until the requirements were fulfilled. Benny Bagert, A&S junior representative, said that the debate which had been held before the Student Council constituted a report, but didn't fulfill the requirements. Jacques requested that the Council decide whether the requirements had been fulfilled.Jacques read three requirements of the motion. Then the council voted to over-rule the decision by the chair (Wagar) that the requirements set by the motion had been met. Postponed By Council ...Reinstated By Court In a judicial decision, unprecedented at Loyola, the Judicial Court of Honor has overruled the Student Council's action on postponing the National Student Association student body referendum. The Court has the authority to rule on this particular situation, because the Council had acted here in a strictly judicial capacity. The general basis for the court's decision were findings in the constitution and proceedings to the effect that election dates, once set, can not be changed unless there are extreme mitigating circumstances.THE IMMEDIATE effect of implementing the Court decision was that the question of Loyola NSA affiliation was referred to a student body ref- erendum Thursday and Friday, as the Student Council had previously decided. Frank Wagar, Council president and A&S senior, representing the majority opinion of the Council, immediately appealed the decision to the Rev. W. L. Junkin, S.J., dean of students, whom, he claimed, had authority over the court findings.FATHER JUNKIN, however, upheld the Court's decision, and the election committee was obliged to arrange for the student referendum immediately. The decision was based specifically on the petition of Ken Sills, law freshman, who presented a three point argument for overruling the Council's action.Wagar defended the Council, saying that it had had every right to change the dates it had first chosen, and that the election manginery did not have sufficient time to go into operation on Thursday and Friday. (The Court decision was made Wednesday night.) The Court's opinions, i.e. the reasonings behind the decision are being synthesized and will be published in the next issue of The Maroon. Vidacovich Chosen Miss Wolf '64 Miss Wolf of 1964, Marilyn Vidacovich, was formally presented between the intramural and student-faculty games by Joe Lobo, the spirit of Loyola, 8:15 p.m. in the fieldhouse.Members of her court were seniors JoAnn Bacino, Cathy Lund, Gaye Saucier, and Sue Talbot, all of arts and sciences; and Joan Gisevius of business administration. Marilyn is presently a senior in the college of arts and sciences. The event in which she was presented was co-sponsored by The Wolf and Tri-Sigma social sorority. Miss Wolf typifies the ideal coed, in the limelight of all Loyola activities. She is chosen by secret ballot cast by five members of The Wolf staff and of the faculty. Ten coeds were first nominated for the title of Miss Wolf, and from these six finalists were selected.Last year Miss Wolf was Mrs. Donald Jansen, formerly Miss Lynn Friedman. Miss Wolf Surprised By Honor By MARY SCHWARTZ Miss Wolf of 1964 and Marilyn Vidacovich are now synonymous terms, for Marilyn, arts and science senior, had the title officially given her before the basketball game between the students and the faculty last Tuesday. "It was such a surprise, even though I did know two weeks ago," exclaimed Marilyn. "I was asleep when Eugene called me and in my grogginess all I heard was 'Miss Wolf.' (Eugene Katsanis is editor of the Wolf.) "I WASN'T allowed to tell anyone but my family, and I could hardly contain myself," she added. "I couldn't even tell my fiance." Marilyn's fiance is A 1 Dittman, freshman in law school. Marilyn is president of Sigma Sigma Sigma social sorority and is majoring in secondary education, at the present time doing student teaching at Fortier. She has served as president of the Secondary Education club, president of Tri Sig's pledge class, historian for Cardinal Key national honor sorority, and recording secretary for Tri Sig and for the Student Council. ALSO AMONG her achievements are parlimentarian for Tri Sig, treasurer for the freshman arts and sciences class, and membership in the Pre Law club and the Women's Pan Hellenic Council. As far as future plans are concerned, Marilyn wants to teach American history here in New Orleans after her August 1 wedding to Al. Miss Wolf was announced immediately after the introduction of the spirit of Loyola, Joe Lobo. Lobo came on stage to greet the audience for his annual public appearance and to be at Miss Wolf's side when the announcement came. Miss W01f... Marilyn Vidacovich, A&S senior, was announced Miss Wolf to her amazement Tuesday night. This active coed was presented by Joe Lobo, spirit of the university at the intramural finals and faculty-student games. She was chosen from an original ten contestants. ATTENTION!

Evans will speak about "The Rise of Conservatism on College Campuses." HE HAS written many articles on the subject which have been published in the "Los Angeles Times;" "Richmond News-Leader," "Time Magazine," "New York Daily News," and other related publications."Revolt on the Campus," his new book, discusses the intellectual quality as well as the Conservative trend that is noticeable in colleges today. In the book Evans implies that the majority of students in universities are primarily indifferent to political matters. What he does stress is that this Conservatism trend is growing."

He received the Freedoms Foundation awards in 1959 and 1960 for editorial writing. F. Wagar Discusses Court Rule By JIM MANIACI Frank Wagar, Student Council President, said he was placed in a "ludicrous" position by the Judicial Court ruling which overruled the Council's action. Wagar, during a recess, said he opposed the Council's decision, yet had to defend it before the Court. "If I were opposed to NSA, and a vote were held at a future date, I would certainly give thought to delaying the vote until the end of the year." (The motion requires the vote this spring semester.) "SOME objections of some members of the Student Council (concerning the postponement of the NSA referendum) are valid, but the Council is not responsible for what The Maroon prints, and if there is any more delay it will only cause more confusion," Wagar continued. "It is difficult to figure the rationale behind the delay," he said. "I think the opponents of NSA were confused, and they are now trying to repair the damage," Wagar said. "LAW school is opposed to NSA, and they made the motion! All my courses in political behavior have been thrown out of the window by Jacques (Bob, 1a w representative) action," Wagar said. He also feels that there is a parallel between the constant battle for power going on between the Congress and Supreme Court of the United States, and the precedent making decision of the Judicial Court of Honor in relation to the Student Council. "The Judicial Court is overstepping its bounds, though it does interpret the Constitution and Statutes of Procedure," Wagar said. "It is best left to the Student Council when to have a vote." Jacques- No Tricks Intended By MARIA GAMBOA What was the motive behind the last-minute objection raised to the National Student Association referendum based on failure to fulfill the education stipulations required by the original motion presented to the Council Oct. 9? As Student Council president Frank Wagar ponders the reason behind law junior Bob Jacques' effective counter to pushers of this national federation of colleges, Jacques calls his act unplanned. "Whether it is my fault or not, the fact remains that there have been no debates other than two that I was told about," he claims. "I myself am opposed to reaffiliation with NSA." IT ALL happened, he claims, when he offered to get the minutes of the October meeting from the car of law junior Charles Foti for secretary Dona Mac Donald. On the way back he read the minutes which stated the original motion. Then the idea that the education aspect of the pre-referendum campaign had not been fulfilled occurred to him. According to Jacques he had a copy of the motion, but had not re-read it for several months. "As it turned out, that was the last meeting before the vote. I felt people I represent and the whole student body were not fairly treated and were not being informed. This was the last opportunity I had," he said. THE COUNCIL representative retorts that he is just a member of the governing body and it is not up to him to educate the students. He stands on the fact that he had no ulterior motive in waiting until the last meeting to remind the Council of the original stipulations.Physics Inductees ...
