Schlesinger To Speak In Fieldhouse On Presidency Loyolans will have an opportunity to hear an eminent historian lecture next Thursday at 8 p.m. in the fieldhouse. Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., Pulitzer Prize winner for his Age of Jackion, will speak on "The Future of the Presidency".He was the youngest historian to receive this coveted award. Schlesinger has written seven books, his latest on the best seller list, A Thousand Days. This book deals with his association with the late President Kennedy, when he served as Special Assistant. It has received much critical acclaim. Time Magazine stated: Although he cannot altogether restrain his boundless admiration for the president he loved and served, this still is by far the best, and most balanced assessment of the Kennedy years that has yet appeared." Schlesinger graduated summa cum laude from Harvard in 1938. During World War II he served in the Office of War Information in Washington and in the Office of Strategic Services in London, Paris, and Germany. In his talk he will discuss the government, the thermonuclear age, the role of the presidency with a consideration of a multiple presidency or an executive vice-president, succession, and the Constitution in the 20th century. Another book written by Schlesinger deals with an appraisal of contemporary American society and politics. It is entitled The Vital Center. He has also written three volumes of an unfinished study of Franklin D. Roosevelt's administration.Admission will be free with ID. Non-students are welcome to attend. SCHLESINGER Chairman Awarded Fellowship dr. eberle Dr. Gerald J. Eberle, Chairman of the Loyola English Department, has been awarded a fellowship to participate in a seminar sponsored by the Southeastern Institute of Medieval and Renaissance Studies. Dr. Eberle will participate in one of nine seminars to be conducted at Duke University from July 20 to Aug. 24. The seminar in which Dr. Eberle will participate will have as a general topic the critical editing of Tudor and Stuart dramatic texts. The sem- inar will be concerned with all aspects of the transmission of the dramatic texts from their own time to the present day, and the editorial principles to be applied to them. The seminar will be led by a Senior Fellow and will consist of six participants who will meet twice a week for discussion. Each participant will have ample time to spend in his own particular field of study. Dr. Eberle's specific field will be Analytical Bibliography. He will concentrate on reconstruction of texts in light of Elizabethan printing house practices. The Southeastern Institute of Medieval and Renaissance Studies is established for the advancement of scholarship and the improvement of teaching in the southeastern region of the United States. Through the Institute the resources of Duke University and the University of North Carolina are made available to scholars and teachers throughout the region. Participation is invited from all students of medieval or renaissance studies. In most cases Fellows should be beyond the Ph.D. level. Dr. Eberle received his Doctorate from the University of Wisconsin and at that time by the strength of his Doctoral Dissertation was awarded one of two Folger Shakespeare Library Research Fellowships given that year. Alumni Give Over $100,000 Alumni giving in 1965 topped $100,000 for the first time since the drives began in 1953, general chairman Hartley Kingsmill announced at the annual report held for Century Club members Sunday in Danna Center's A la Carte room. Century Club members are those who donate over $100, but the total includes all donations, and averages over $50 per giver. The exact total is $101,121.36 from 1900 donors, compared with $77,877 from 2100 donors the year before last. "The 1965 total is equal to the return on approximately $2.5 million in additional endowment and represents a substantial factor in the advancement of the university," Kingsmill said. "The steady progress of the drive over the past 13 years reflects a growing awareness among alumni of the university's difficult tasks and its constant efforts to improve," Kingsmill added. The first drive netted $7,575. Group No. of Donors Amount A&S 612 $ 13,543.50 Law 375 27,424.86 Dentistry 290 12,827.50 Business Administration 270 7,824.00 Med.

Father Doyle Reassigned By FERREL GUILLORY After 14 years of work at Loyola, the Rev. Edward A. Doyle, S.J., academic vice-president, has been appointed associate director of studies for the New Orleans Province of the Society of Jesus. The appointment was made by the Very Rev. John Edwards, S.J., provincial, and takes effect this week. Father Doyle left for his new task Tuesday. Described by Father Doyle himself as a "great blessing for me," his new job consists in aiding in the education of men studying for the Jesuit order and supervision of those schools under the Jesuits' control. He said that he will make periodic visits to all Jesuit high schools in the 10-state Southern Province and to Loyola and Spring Hill, the two institutions of higher learning in the same area. Father Edwards in speaking of Father Doyle's appointment said, "Father Doyle's many years of experience in the field of education, and as dean of arts and sciences and academic vice-president of Loyola make him an obvious choice to become associate director of studies in the province." LOYOLA'S NEWLY named president, the Very Rev. Homer Jolley, S.J., said of Father Doyle, "No one has contributed more to Loyola university over the past 14 years than Father Dolye, expecially in the academic field." Father Jolley continued, "He has been a leader in raising standards, in improving the faculty and the quality of our programs and in articulating the academic aims of the university. Among his outstanding qualities has been his great devotion to the student body and student projects. "He will be greatly missed by all at the university, but we will continue to benefit from his experience and ability through his new post as associate director of studies for the Southern Province," Father Jolley commented further. "Many of the Jesuits whose studies he will supervise will one day be Loyola professors." For his new position, Father Doyle will be stationed at Ponchatoula, La., headquarters of the Southern Province. One of his main duties will be the directing of Jesuits into specialized fields. FATHER DOYLE said that he was "happy over the appointment" to help prepare Jesuits for the "intellectual apostolate." He stated that his job would be to aid these men to the "limit of potential," and that his field of operation was "greatly broadened" to include the educational advancement of all in the Southern Province. In speaking of Loyola, FatherFather Doyle said that its "greatest and brightest future lay ahead of it." He noted that this would be the case because of the increasing access of the university to financial contributions, drives such as the current Campaign for Excellence, and a better faculty and student body. Father Doyle said that he would "always cherish the warm associations with faculty, staff, and students" he has had during his stay at Loyola, which he described as the "happiest years ever spent." Father Doyle continued, "I have always felt very close to everybody here." He said that he would have many occasions to return to Loyola in both official and unofficial capacities and to retain the associations of the past years. He described those at Loyola with whom he has worked as "most cooperative." FATHER DOYLE, during his term at Loyola, served as president of the Louisiana College Conference, chairman of the liberal arts commission of the Jesuit Educational Association, chairman of the Conference of Academic Deans of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, and on the executive committees of the Louisiana College Conference and the National Catholic Educational Association. He was president of the Children's Bureau of New Orleans in 1956- 57 and also served in his newly appointed capacity for an interim period from 1959-61. Graduated cum laude from Georgetown University in 1935, the former Loyola academic vice-president received his Licentiate in Sacred Theology from St. Mary's college in St. Mary's, Kan. in 1947. Father Doyle received his Ph.D. in 1951 from the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. Father Doyle took his final vows as a Jesuit in 1952 in Holy Name of Jesus Church on the Loyola campus. He joined the faculty of the university the same year as associate professor of education. LU Dental School Aids Children From Headstart Loyola's Dental School has begun a 20-week program of free Saturday morning treatments for children who participated in Operation Headstart of Total Community Action, the New Orleans war on poverty. According to Mrs. J. B. Hickey, supervisor of Headstart Dental Follow-up, last summer's Operation Headstart was a program to raise disadvantaged children to the physical, social and mental level of advantaged children. One phase of the operation included dental care. The January issue of the Journal of the American Dental Association reports that throughout the country last summer 561,000 children were examined in programs directed by the U.S. Office of Economic Opportunity.The current project is aimed at providing more extensive dental treatment for the children who were found to need it last summer. The program is being conducted under the direction of a committee of New Orleans dentists. Loyola is merely providing the facilities. According to Mrs. Hickey and Mrs. Iris Kelso, program specialist in education for Total Community Action, 2,100 of the 3,000 children examined during the summer had cavities. The parents of 700 of these have expressed interest in having their children treated during the current program. Dr. Edmund E. Jeansonne, dean of the School of Dentistry, said that "cleaning, x-rays, repairs and extractions will be included in the treatments performed. Ten senior dentistry students, some faculty members and five invited general practitioners will be on hand each Saturday to treat the children," he said. Last summer 50 junior and senior students examined and performed emergency extractions on 420 children a morning between Aug. 2 and Aug. 13. Of these, Mrs. Hickey, said, 85-90 per cent had never seen a dentist. "The problem is that New Orleans is lacking in dental facilities; there is no place to send them," she said. Teeth Cleaning If the ituder.U, faculty, and staff of Loyola Univeriity are interested in having their teeth cleaned, the School of Dentistry Curriculum of Dental Hygiene will provide thit service every Friday afternoon in the dental school clinic. An appointment should be made in advance with the Diagnosis Clinic, Ex. 374. If an I.D. card is shown, a reduced fee will be charged for this service. For further information call the Department of Dental Hygiene, Ex. 361. Father Doyle . . . The Rev. Edward A. Doyle, S.J. leaves Loyola after 14 years of dedicated service to the University to assume a new position as associate director of studies for New Orleans Province of Society of Jesus. Fr. Doyle says he intends to return to Loyola often both on official and unofficial trips.
