The Loyola Maroon Vol. XLI Loyola University, New Orleans, La., Friday, February 26, 1965 No. 17 LeFevre Held In Slaying By BRENDA ACOSTA Moot Court Stages Killing Carol LeFevre, this year's Little Colonel, was arrested for the alleged murder of her fiance, Tom Blum, A&S senior, in the snack bar Tuesday. The mock murder was staged at 12:15 p.m. to serve as the Moot Court case to be tried Friday, April 2, at 7 p.m. in Judge Bernard J. Bagert's court. Prosecuting will be Delta Theta Phi law fraternity; defending will be St. Thomas More law club. Jurors will be selected from member of the pre-law club. After the killing, dazed and trembling with shock, Carol was escorted by Mr. Bill I nks t e r, assistant cafeteria manager, to the Dean of Students' office to await police. She refused to talk with the press about what had occurred. The facts concerning the death were pieced together from var- ious witnesses' accounts. Witness Muffy Clubb, A&S freshman, gave the following version of the tragedy: "Tom was sitting at the table. Dawn Deynoodt, A&S freshman, came up and started talking to him. I heard her say, 'Don't forget about tonight.' Carol, coming towards the table, overheard this, and asked what it was all about. Tom tried to evade the issue, but she persisted. Finally, he answered, 'Well, if you must know, I've been going out with her for about three months'." ACCORDING to Muffy, Carol then said, "We're supposed to be engaged." "Maybe we could do something about that too," he countered. "After all I've done for you?" "Like what?" "Money, for one thing." "Money! Is that all you can think about?" Leslie Lachin, A&S junior, carried the account further. She said, "He got mad at her and then he threw something when she started to walk away from the table. Someone started screaming. Then she walked up to him and struck him in the neck with something." Muffy Clubb identified this "something" as a nailfile. Nilda Gonzalez, A&S sophomore, said she saw Carol walking away from the table looking back angrily. "There was a crash which sounded like broken glass. She walked back to the table, and it looked like she struck him in the neck," she recalled. "I HEARD them arguing. I knew they were engaged so I thought they were just having a quarrel," said Elaine Engler, BA junior. One witness, Richard Dia- Fr. O'Neill Appointed Guest Prof The Rev. Charles E. O'Neill, S.J., has been appointed guest professor in history, announced the Rev. Edward A. Doyle, S.J., vice-president of the university. Father O'Neill will take over direction of Loyola's project to catalog and microfilm important records of the Spanish period in Louisiana history. The Rev. Ernest J. Burrus, S. J., who initiated the project, is retiring as director for reasons of health. For the past three years, Father O'Neill has researched Louisiana history in Europe and Canada and obtained his doctorate at Gregorian university in Rome. He has prepared a book, "Church and State in French Colonial Louisiana," for publication. Of the Spanish records project, Father O'Neill said, "We are seeking the financial support of a foundation to continue the project. The Spanish colonial period is an untapped field in early American history. As a result of work like this, New Orleans could become a center for research on the Mississippi Valley." He noted that, although it may be a few years before microfilming is completed, he expects to finish cataloguing within a few months. Latin Students Arriving Mon.

Rufus Thomas Swings Tonight Intercollegiate Dance Kufus "Dogman" Thomas comes to Loyola tonight for the big "Intercollegiate Dance" to be held in Danna Center from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. "THE SHOW will most definitely be the best dance ever held at Loyola," said Frank Uddo, chairman of the dance and entertainment committee. "The entire Student Union Committee is going all out for this affair, and it should be fabulous," he said. Of course the main attraction of the dance is the third top popular-recording artist in the country, Rufus Thomas, otherwise known as "Dogman." Thomas acquired this title from the series of songs he recorded originating from his first "The Dog," which started a new dance craze throughout the country. In everyday life, "Dogman" is a disc jockey for radio station WDIQ in Memphis, Tenn. He soared to jukebox popularity with "The Dog" and has stayed there with his latest hit, "Jump Back." A RECENT article in "Campus Show Magazine" ranks Rufus Thomas as third most popular in the nation following only after James Brown and Bobby Blue Bland in the rating of male rock 'n' roll artists. Rufus will also present a 45 minute show during the dance tonight.

Loyola was the last college scouted from a group of 25 colleges and universities throughout the South. Mr. Charles Gora, one of the four representatives from Texas A&M, said that Loyola in his opinion had "the best overall quality of talent of all 25 campuses" visited by the group. The Loyola talent will participate in the annual Texas A&M Talent Show, which is an all-out affair attended by people from every part of the South. The auditions were handled by the Student Union Committee and also provided a free talent show for Loyolans. LU Hosts Music Fete Loyola will be host for the first time to the Music Rating Festival to be held Friday and Saturday, March 12 and 13.

Soloists and ensembles may perform any music of their choice except senior high school bands which must play one selection from the NIMAC list in their classification as well as the selection of their choice. Senator Grueing: Principles Of Freedom Justify Expense Of Life By CAROLYN BEREZNAK "All of Vietnam is not worth one American life," said Senator Ernest Grueing (R-Alaska) Saturday at the seventh annual convention of the Auburn Conference on National Affairs, attended by Eddy Hardin, student council representative. This statement of personal interpretation of America's part in the Vietnam situation turned into a ma- jor clash of idealistic principles and crisis on foreign policy.SENATOR GRUEING had finished his speech at one of the convention banquets, and it was followed by a questionanswer period. When asked for his views on the Vietnamese situation, Grueing replied that the country wasn't worth an American life. The Alaskan was one of the two senators who voted against President Johnson's vote of confidence on the Vietnam crisis last summer. But Senator Grueing failed to realize that seated at the head of the table was Dr. Tran Van Choung, former Vietnamese ambassador to the United States and father of Madam Nhu. DR. CHOUNG immediately refuted Senator Grueing's statement. In his speech the senator had been discussing the population explosion since the 1930's and had put forth his extreme isolationist doctrine as regards the U.S. mingling with the problems of other countries. In h'is answer to the Vietnamese question he illustrated the extent of his extreme idealism. The discussion quickly turned into debate as Dr. Chu defended his idealism on historical grounds, specifically the results of the isolationist principle applied after World War I and its relation to the causes of World War 11. AFTER THIS major clash of two extreme views and after Dr. Chuong finished his refutation the members of the convention gave Dr. Chuong a standing ovation. In Eddy Hardin's words, "David slew Goliath."This confrontation of two idealisms on so tense an issue at the present time was undoubtedly the focal point of the conference, but there were many other interesting speakers, said Hardin. The real problem explored by the conference this year was "poverty and the population explosion in developing nations." In information distributed by the ACOIA, it was stated that "150,000 people are born a day, or 50 million a year." The main problem is in underdeveloped countries lacking technical skills, scientific knowledge in essentials of food, clothing, and housing. This is a danger to the health, welfare, and very existence of these people." The purpose of the conference was to solve this problem or at least to aid in its solution. Many speakers outlined the problem to the members and gave their views as to its solution.THE KEYNOTE speaker was Dr. John Rock, who invented the birth control pill. Another important speaker was - John Strohm, agricultural expert who has traveled in the Iron Curtain countries and South America. He outlined the problem as "a race between the breeders and the feeders." A demographer from the United Nations gave a statistical report and explained how Japan solved their problem by legalized abortion. Mr. S. Guhan, economic minister from the Indian Embassy, illustrated some economic effects of the population explosion on India. The convention was attended by students from colleges and universities all over the South. This was the first year Loyola sent a representative, and the university will continue to send a representative every year. The ACOIA was organized and paid for by the Auburn Student Government. Each year they take a new problem to probe and discuss among college youth. EDDY HARDIN, as Loyola representative, made these observations:"I tended to doubt some of the conclusions which the speakers drew, and I felt that they were trying to resolve social problems by immoral means", said Eddy. "I was impressed by the Auburn student body, who were given dean's excuses to attend the conference.(See MOOT COURT, page 3) Calendar Of Events Friday, February 26 APO film series, "The Hoodlum Priest," Marquette auditorium, 8 p.m. Intercollegiate dance starring Rufus "Dogman" Thomas, Danna Center, 9 p.m. Saturday.
