The Loyola Maroon Vol. XLI Loyola University, New Orleans, La., Friday, March 19, 1965 No. 19 Gabriel Marcel To Speak, Answer Questions Friday Gabriel Marcel, noted French philosopher, will speak at Holy Name auditorium next Friday at 8 p.m. "The Myth of the Death of God in Contemporary Thought" will be his topic. During his visit to the campus, Marcel also expects to meet with students of PI. 320 "existential philosophy, Gabriel Marcel" to answer all questions. The session will be held on Friday from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in room 3C in Danna center. THE LECTURE which is being sponsored by the department of philosophy is free and open to the public. It is part of a nation-wide speaking tour. Marcel is coming here from Duquesne university in Pittsburgh.Marcel is considered the foremost representative in France of Christian existentialism as opopsed to Jean Paul Sartre's atheistic existentialism. Among Marcel's principal philosophical works are "Men Against Mass Society" and "Mystery of Being." IN CONJUNCTION with his visit here, a short one-act play of Marcel's called "The Lantern" will be put on in Marquette auditorium at 7:30 the next day. The cast will include: Ray Maxent, Dick Groff, Pat Piazza, Mary Beth Clark, and Sydney Trower. Directing will be Bert Harris. Marcel was educated at the Lycee Carnot and the Sorbonne in Paris. He has become known as a philosopher, educator, literary critic, playwright and lecturer. The William James lectures he delivered at Harvard in 1961 have been published under the title "The Existential Background of Human received the French Academy's Grand Prize of Liberature in 1949 and the National Grand Prize of Letters in 1965. He holds the rank of Officer in the Legion of Honor. Among the major dramatic works of the 76-year-old philosopher are "A Man of God" and "The Sign of the Cross." James Collins in The Existtentialitti says, "Marcel is practicing playwright of long standing. He reports that the writing of plays was at first a means of extricating himself from the abstract whirlgig of idealistic reasoning. In the drama, he was dealing with individuals and their free actions. Gradually, Marcel discovered that a correlation existed between his dramatic and his theorectical advances. Many of the views which he later expressed in a philosophical way were first proposed in his plays. The plays expressed the import of human existence in a concrete, dynamic, and personal way." GABRIEL MARCEL Lang. Dept.

Betty Schmidt, A&S freshman, testifies graphically to the fact that the thought of mid-semester examinations is never very appealing, even when they are scheduled on a Peanuts calendar book. All students face the dismal future with the same attitude, but few are so expressive about it; Betty seems to have captured the essence of campus reaction.
