The Loyals Maroon Vol. XLIII Loyola University, New Orleans, La., Friday, September 30, 1966 No. 1 Dorm Nears Completion Come On In . . . A glimpse of one of the near-completed rooms of Buddig Hall shows how compactness and a sense of space were accomplished through careful planning for the needs of coed boarders. Buddig Hall, the new women's dormitory, is in the final stages of construction, but the girls will have to wait a few more weeks for some of the luxuries promised in the new building. The Sept. 1 completion deadline had to be postponed because of "a lengthy insulators strike", 31 days of unpredicted rain, a delay in fixture shipments and several other production setbacks, according to Granite Construction Co. During the summer, when the administration saw delays brewing, emergency meetings were held with contractors and architects. Time and time again the administration was promised that seven floors would be ready when the girls arrived. Extra work crews were put to the task of speeding up production. Carpenters and construction workers went into overtime and high gear. Granite assured the university, again, that seven floors would be completed by late August, but due to further complications this deadline was postponed. In mid September the dorm could provide adequate living conditions, but not all the comforts of home. The girls moved in. The possibility of housing the girls in off campus guest houses and hotels was suggested. Inquiries were made and rates quoted, the most acceptable location being the Candlelight Motel on Airline Highway. The Rev. Homer R. Jolley, University president, in discussing the reasons for having the girls live on campus, noted the great responsibility the university had in housing approximately 300 girls. "The parents of the students would much prefer to have them living on campus, and I am sure the girls themselves are glad to be as close to the school as possible. This way there are no transportation problems either." The administration expressed its appreciation of the many students who helped out during the first few days of occupancy. The service organizations, sororities and rushees, faculty members, and students in general acted in a spirit peculiar to Loyola that made the unofficial opening pleasant and successful," said Miss Rosalie Parrino, Dean of Women. "I think the attitude that the students are taking is most commendable," added Miss Parrino. "The high morale of the students in this regard can be attributed to the girls' mature understanding of the situation, the spirit bolstering efforts of the upperclass coeds (especially the counselors,) and the assurrance that, when completed, the dorm will have been well worth the inconviences." After the girls' rooms are completed, work will begin on the many lounges, dens and unique features of the dormitory. % The 12th floor will contain vending machines, meeting rooms for group study sessions and an arts and crafts room. Each floor will have its own recreational areas consisting of a TV, lounge chairs, and carpeting. Facilities for laun-- dry and ironing will also be included. Not Quite . . . Buddig Hall, whose completion has been delayed by rain and a strike, is still undergoing construction. Several floors are yet to be finished, and final fixtures are being installed. Mass Of Holy Spirit Opens LU School Year Rev. Harold Cohen, S.J., Loyola University chaplain, encouraged teachers and students to seek creativity during the academic year at the official opening of the fall semester Sept. 19. Delivering the sermon at the traditional Mass of the Holy Spirit, Father Cohen told those who packed Holy Name of Jesus Church that "it is here in the university that we must develop the power to think for ourselves and the power to be creative." He especially urged this to combat the growing danger resulting from the findings of the behaviorial scientists. Father Cohen warned that the behavioral sciences had developed a "Frankenstein" in experimentation with human activity. Citing the works of some of the leading scholars and authors on this subject, the university chaplain explained that these findings pose a definite threat to the tradition of a free and self-determining people. The creativity necessary to overcome the dangers presented by the behavioral sciences "is best fostered in the warm atmosphere of deep regard and understanding for the individ-oJDl' and of freedom for per- M-r'a! expression," Father Cohen elaborated. Father Cohen stressed the obligations of both students and professors toward developingdeveloping creativity and allowing the freedom of persons to express themselves. He urged professors ,to give students the opportunity to speak out and encouraged the students likewise to take advantage of their liberty to develop as individuals. "To develop into more original thinkers and creative persons, we first of all have to encourage in ourselves and others an openness to experience what breaks through our prefabricated structures," Father Cohen said. "The more the individual has available to himself a sensitive awareness of all phases of experience, the more will his own emotions, his own thoughts, his own creativity bubble up." Seniors, clad in graduation garments, faculty members in appropriate academic attire and newly arrived freshmen participated in the Mass of the Holy Spirit. Music for an English Mass composed by Anthony Milner was used with the singing being done by the congregation along with a choir under the auspices of the School of Music. "Creativity" . . . Urging students to think for themselves, the Rev. Harold Cohen, S.J., is shown delivering the homily at the annual Mass of the Holy Spirit. rewg Artist's Sketch . . . This sketch is an artist's conception of the proposed beer parlor for the basement of Danna Center. The Rev. Homer Jolly, S.J., university president, first exhibited this drawing to the members of the Student Council for their approval at their weekly meeting. The student representatives voted overwhelmingly to accept this plan, which is only one part of a much larger series of renovations slated for the union building. Final blueprints should be completed by Jan. 1, 1967 and work will begin soon. Death Of Father Lemieux Mourned By Student Body The Rev. Guy. J. Lemieux, S.J., professor of philosophy and religious superior of the Jesuit community died unexpectedly Tuesday at approximately 3:15 p.m. while visiting Spring Hill College in Alabama. Father Lemieux was brought back to lie in state at Holy Name of Jesus Church Wednesday. A Requiem Mass was concelebrated yesterday by the Very Rev. Homer Jolley, S.J., university president, the Rev. John Keller, S.J., executive v i c e-president, and several other Jesuit priests. The Rev. Henry Montecino, S.J., delivered the eulogy. Interment will be at St. Charles Church in Grand Coteau, La. Father Lemieux, 58, who has been a member of the philosophy department since 1946, was a native of New Orleans. He received his A.B. degree from Loyola, his M.A. from St. Louis University and his S.T.L., a theological degree, from St. Mary's College in Kansas. Before joining the Loyola department of philosophy, he taught English at Spring Hill College and in Grand Coteau, La. In July of this year he was appointed religious superior of the Loyola Jesuit community and was recently elected to the New Orleans Archdiocesan Synod.Father Lemieux served as chairman of Loyola's committeecommittee on institutional surveys and on the committee on faculty rank and tenure.

Lemicux Basement Utilization Planned For Center Flans for further utilization of the Danna Center basement currently head the development program under way on the Loyola campus. After a nearly unanimous vote by members of the Student Council it has been decided that a beer garden will be erected in the basement. This plan was chosen over that of placing- a bowling alley in the available space, the opinion being that there was not enough interest in the sport to warrant the maintenance of such a concession. Building of the beer garden, the designs for which have been chosen, should begin in approximately two months. It is hoped that the beer garden will be completed by the spring semester. The Wolt's Den, also located in the Danna Center basement, will be decorated so as to complement the soon to be built beer garden. Plans call for the separation of pool and ping pong tables by a glass partition. The decor of the pool room will feature carpeted floors and lowered ceilings. An art and dramatics workshop will also be located in the basement. This room will offer ample space for projects carried out by various organizations on cani| is. Also panned is a Little Thcu.vi v here L'y ola thespians will be better able to produce thi ir offerings. Campus organizations whose offices will be housed in the basement include the Student Council, Alpha Pi Omicron and Lambda Sigma Lambda service organizations, Blue Key and Cardinal Key honor organizations and the Pan-Hellenic and Intra-Fraternity councils.

New Loyola—LSU Program Offers Better Dental Education Loyola and Louisiana State University have developed a system designed to strengthen and expand dental education in Louisiana, the Very Rev. Homer R. Jolley, S.J., president of Loyola said. The program calls for the erection of new facilities for dental education within the LSU Medical Center in New Orleans and for the continuation of the operation of the Loyola Dental School until the facilities under the control of the LSU system are completed.Father Jolley said that "at least two years" will be required in order to make a smooth transition of the Loyola faculty and students to the LSU Medical center. "Dental education costs more per student than any other form of professional training, even more than medical training. A financial projection of the annual operating costs of the expanded dental facility showed a deficit of more than $800,000—equal to the total operating deficit of the total University curriculum," Father said. After an extensive discussion with state officials, foremost among them our honoree, Governor McKeithen, it was decided that it is most appropriate for the only dental school serving several Southern states to be supported by the vastly superior financial resources of the State," he added.The announcement of the dental education program was made simultaneously with the introduction in the Louisiana legislature of a bill to authorize LSU to issue $5.5 millionmillion in bonds for construction of a new dental school. The new facility is estimated to cost $10 million. Negotiations are already underway to secure federal funds for the new facility and Loyola and LSU are cooperating closely in this phase, as well as in others. Negotiations between Loyola and the Department of Health, Education and Welfare for maximum assistance to LSU in securing the best possible grant for the finest possible dental school. Colonel Swatta Heads ROTC Col. Frank Swatta has been named ROTC commander. Col. Swatta received his commission through the R.O.T.C program studying at the University of lowa. Besides his military duties, Col. Swatta teaches first year mathematics. Col. Swatta's main objective in the R.O.T.C. program is to develop in the cadets the qualities of leadership necessary in a good officer. Since the colonel feels that leaders are not always born, but made, the cadet officers will be given more responsibility than ever before. This is intended to give them confidence in their ability to command as well as experience in handling people. During World War 11, Col. Swatta commanded a batallion of combat engineers and has just returned from duty in Okinawa where he was the chief engineer.
