She spent her freshman year in journalism and then transferred into an English program with a minor in Spanish. Born 20 years ago in Wilmington, N.C., Crrol moved to Miami, Florida when she was 14 and just starting highschool at Immaculata Academy.

The oldest of five children (one of which is a BA junior, Norman LeFevre), she is engaged to Tom Blum, band commander, and they plan an early June wedding, although she hopes to work on her master's degree in English. Dimpled Carol is excited about her new position as ROTC favorite . . . "Bob Perez and a group met me after class, but no one said anything— they just stood around," said Carol. "Finally Bob said, Congratulations.' I was so excited; I didn't ever think I'd win." The deadline for pictures for company sponsors was yesterday and balloting will take place Thursday. Little Colonel Carol LeFevre will be formally presented with the company sponsors at the annual military ball to be held later in the year. Battalion Favorite . . .

Henry R. Montecino, S.J., chairman of the philosophy department.The French philosopher will speak on "The Myth of the Death of God in Contemporary Thought." Born in 1889, Marcel is unlike other existentialist writers in that his philosophy has a religious inclination. Treen Opposes LBJ Administration In His Talk On The Loyola Campus David Treen, Republican candidate for Congress in the 2nd Congressional District, told Loyola students last Wednesday that true conservatism "is concerned with people and not with things." Speaking in front of the Danna center, Treen said that, true responsible conservatism has a structured view of the human being in life— man is not only animalistic but is also spiritual, and has a soul. "This should be the politician's view of the public, that the materialistic outlook justifies things only by needs or by wants. This goes hand in hand with socialism," he said. An attorney who received his law degree from Tulane, Treen believes that conservatism wants to preserve and extend freedom. A delicate balance should be maintained between government and complete freedom; there must be freedom to develop and there must also be government to sustain social order. Too much of either can corrupt and destroy, he noted. "The Republican emphasis is being put on the evils of overcentralization in the federal government and resulting tyranny. Treen touched upon the danger of government control in education, and of increasing government wealth coming from high revenues. Treen began his attack on incumbent Hale Boggs by bringing up the tidelands issue. Boggs, currently Majority Par- GOP at Loyola . . . David Treen, Republican candidate for Congress in the upcoming election, spoke last Wednesday to students in front of the Danna center. Treen told the audience that Republican interest is being put on the evils of over-centralization in the federal government. In a question and answer session that followed his speech Treen said that it was not a question of how much power a Congressman has, but rather how he uses it. ty Whip in Congress, promised in 1951 that he would do all in his power to get for Louisiana the $700 million due it in tidelands money. Treen brought out that "The tidelands are frozen on the New Frontier, and this money belongs to us." Speaking to a midly responsive audience of approximately 100 students and faculty, Treen pointed out his views of the Johnson administration. "Johnson has said that the only problem we have is to live or die, yet what a contrast this is with the doctrine of Christianity," stated Treen, "It is a question of how we live, and consequently of how we die." Treen ended his speech with the sentiments that our hope must be with the youth, for youth cannot afford not to get mixed up in politics. Treen called for all students present to "enter the great moral crusade to put this country back on the highroad." In a question and answer session, one question directed at Treen after he had concluded his speech. Mr. A. C. Straughan, professor of German, asked how it would be possible for Treen with the prospect of being only a junior Congressman on winning the election, could wield more power than Boggs, the Majority Party Whip with great influence, on settling the tidelands problem. Mr. Treen replied that the question was not how much power a Congressman has, but how he uses it. Treen plans on doing as much as possible to assure our state of her tidelands money. Treen, sponsored by the Republican and Conservative Clubs, declared in closing that one of his big aims was to bring the two-party system to Louisiana. How successful he is in doing this will be demonstrated in the coming election on November 3. Grant Gives More Booths (Sec (torjr, page 2) Due to a $10,000 grant from the Kresge Foundation, the new language laboratory will be able to add 20 more booths to their present 40, announced the Rev. Emmett M. Bienvenu, S.J., chairman of the language department. With 60 booths, he hopes to greatly facilitate the scheduling of the language students, since the number enrolled greatly exceeded both his expectation and the available space. "We are hoping that next year we will be able to schedule second year language students. This was impossible to do this year because of the lack of space," he said. It is his opinion that the students will undoubtedly increase their efficiency proportionately as they use the lab. There has been a most favorable response from both students and faculty toward the language lab. He feels that the noted progress of first year language students, who have been using the lab, has been most gratifying. TU Doctors Speak Tues. Dis. William Soruin and Isadore Yager of the Tulane medical school will speak on "Extremism—the Real Issue," at 8 p.m. Tuesday in rooms 2 A-B-C, of the Danna center, sponsored by Loyola Student Democratic Association.

Inter-American Center Begins Latin Youth Leaders Program Loyola's Inter - American center will swing into full action in its program of supervised training of young leaders from Panama and Central America this Monday. Mr. George E. Flanagan, executive director of the Inter-American center, will be in charge of the program which has been made possible under an Alliance for Progress contract with the U.S. Agency for International Development (A.1.D.). Last year Mr. Flanagan served as executive director of the Barney Neighborhood House in Washington, D.C. He was executive director of the Willoughby House Settlement in New York's Puerto Rican Harlem from 1940 to 1957. In Brooklyn, he was president of the University Clinton Area Renewal Effort and vicepresident of the Navy Yard District council. The curriculum for this program,program, which is divided into six-week seminars, will include classroom instruction by professors from the five New Orleans universities, tours of local industries and visits to private homes. The program will run through October of 1965. Greek Class Set Loyola is sponsoring an institute for high school Latin teachers who wish to equip themselves with a knowledge of Greek language and literature for an introduction at high school level. The classes are held every Saturday morning in Hynes hall at 8:00 a.m. They last for an hour and a half, are taught by the Rev. Emmett M. Bienvenu, S.J., and will continue for two semesters. This institute originated in response to a request from members of the Latin Institute held here last August. Mystery Man . . . Good grief, but it's stuffy in here! No, this isn't Chorlie Brown —but as to who it really is, no one is at liberty to disclose. One thing that is known is that this is Lambda Sigma Lambda, service sorority's. Mystery Man. Coeds, save your pennies— he is auctioned off to the highest bidder (proceeds go to the United Fund Drive), today at noon in the Danna center. Cordaro vs Lapeyre Opens Debate Series By JUDY SCHOENBERGER Touche—that was the key word at the opening debate on "The Candidates and Their Campaigns" held last week the debate between J. B. Cordaro, representing Lyndon Baines Johnson, and Henri Lapeyre, representing Barry Goldwater, was peppered with attacks and counter attacks from the audience. Cordaro, a Loyola alumni doing graduate work at Tulane, opened the debate with a speech for Johnson. Among the President's accomplishments, he cited the poverty bill, civil rights, and the proposed medicare plan. Cordaro also stressed the importance of education. In a democracy, the more educated people are the more successfully the country will operate, he siad. "The Democrats believe that change is inevitable in the challenges of society and, therefore, we must face these challenges and change as they do. Though one, the Democrats have made the nation prepared for war," he said. CORDARO PRAISED the steps that have been taken toward achieving a Test Ban treaty. On the foreign front, he felt that the United States has an obligation to help other nations. "We saved, through our aid, Turkey from collapse and Greece from Communism. We have also poured millions into Communist countries with the hope that they are mellowing and will choose the United States. Without our aid, these countries would not be able to change and, therefore, we will never gain their alliance. It is a gamble, but one I feel we must take," he maintained. Henri Lapeyre, law senior, spoke for Goldwater. He looked at the problem in a different light—the two conflicting philosophies of the liberals and conservatives. THE LIBERAL theory is that man is basically good and without corruption. Lapeyre added that they think man is his own destiny without dependence on God. On the other hand, the conservatives maintain that man needs God. "With the liberal philosophy in power for over 30 years, we can recognize a weakening in the moral fiber of the country. The crime rate is on a sharp increase and individual responsibility is rapidly dying," he claimed. On the foreign front, the U. S. is engaged in a real war. This cold war, according to Lapeyre, has cost more and enslaved more men than any hot war. If the U.S. waits for the Communists to mellow, it may be in serious trouble. "Since we have already lost in Korea, S. Vietnam (where Diem was removed with U. S. help), Cuba, Laos and so on down the line, Goldwater believes in foreign aid, but only in those countries where it will be used effectively and efficiently to help the cause of freedom," he said. The question and answer period aroused a great deal of audience participation. Lapeyre was given an opportunity to explain the basic policies of Goldwater—a firm stand against communism, voluntary medicare, sounder economy, large tax cut, and civil rights. On Johnson's poverty bill, Cordaro explained that poverty cannot be ended, but that the situation can be improved through progress. Good Luck The Maroon wishes to extend a rote of confidence and a hope for good luck to the four Loyola students who will appear on NBC's "College Bowl" this Sunday at 4:30 p.m. (CST). Loyola will be represented by Tom Satory, Walter Sagrera, Carmella Tardo and John Fitsmorris.
