The Loyola Maroon Vol. XLIII Loyola University, New Orleans, La., Friday April 14, 1967 No. 18 Work On Rathskeller To Commence Shortly By ED CURDA "What's with the Rathskeller? The Administration told us in September it would probably be finished by now, and construction hasn't even started yet. What a drag! (Grump! Grump!)" This somewhat-prevailing student attitude prompted the Maroon to ask the Rev. George T. Bergen, S.J., director of campus planning, the reasons for the delay on the beer parlor. "The delay is due to our needing time to get feasible, working plans drawn up and approved," Father Bergen said. "The Rathskeller is an improvement on an already-completed structure, and this has raiscl :\ number (if problems, especially with electricity and air conditioning. Consequently, the bids received were higher than expected, and. it's just taken time for these things to be ironed out. "We expect to sign a contract with Otis Sharpe Contractors within the week," he said. "After that, work should begin in early May and be completed by the end of the summer. The Rathskeller should be in full operation by the fall semester." The beer parlor is a part of a general improvement of the basement (if Danna Center. Other work includes construction of temporary office space for the departments of English and Languages, and a workshop theater for the Department of Theater and Speech. "A close second to the Rathskeller in immediacy is the work shop theater," Father Bergen said. Work this summer will also include renovation of the main floor of Marquette Hall. Thorough remodelling of the speech department and the president's office should be completed by September. This is the first stage of renovation that will eventually rework the whole interior of the building. In other construction areas, test piles for the Science Complex foundation were driven this week, and official groundbreaking ceremonies for the building are expected within the next two weeks. Architects for the Law Building have been signed. Prime architect is Mary Mykolyk who will be working with the Lowry-Hess-Boudreaux-Farnet firm. Construction of the Law Building is planned for completion at about the same time as the Science Complex— late 10C8 or early 1969. Father Bergen revealed that architects have been assigned for a building that will include a 1,000-ear parking garage. "The building will be a combination of a number of things," Father Bergen said. "It will be built on the present site of the Fieldhouse and will include a garage, a multi-purpose gymnasium, and a 1,500- scat auditorium. We also have tentative plans to include a branch band and clothing stores, and are considering including apartments for married students and faculty members. However, these plans are still tentative and are not yet finalized."Photo by Fred Messina Going Down . . .

The Complex will provide 170,000 sq. ft. of floor space to house the chemistry, math, physics departments and the computer center. Classrooms and amphitheatre will be available to the entire university. The Complex will cost $5.2 million. Official ground breaking has been set for April 25.

Committee for the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space. Old Art Barns Don't Die, They Give Way To Science Complex This week students at Loyola have witnessed the demise of a sturdy, staunch and able grand old lady—the Art Barn, as she graciously yields her place in the sun to the new Science Complex. Built in the summer of 1944-45 by Loyolans, this hardy building has served as Maroon office, Wolf office and recreation hall until the erection of Danna Center in 1964. The all-green office behind the library contained pool tables, coke machines, and ping pong tables, as the 1950 counterpart of the Wolf's Den. "World War II exicted in Loyola students a wish to do their bit to help our boys. At this time Loyola taught air mechanics and flying in the barn. Where the med tech building now stands was an aii-plane and engine," said Charles Brennan, public relations director. "During the war," he continued, "these flyers went into the Air Force in a Loyola Squadron. One of them was Walter Kreutz, former president of Student Council, who was killed in action." From the days of Edwin P. Fricke, moderator of the Maroon to the Rev. Whitney J. Engeran, S.J., present head of the Art Department, the Art Barn has preserved its dilapidated charm. The writing on the walls, the pictures, the spacious interior remained intact up until this past Monday when wreckers shredded the Barn's insides. Today a barren plot of land arrests the eye. The planks of lumber are stored neatly all in a row. The Art Barn is no more. Yesterday . . . . . . Today Dress Regs Proposals Bog Down By SHERYL BUTLER Recent dress rules recomendations submitted by the Student Council to the Rev. Joseph Molloy, S.J., dean of students, have been temporarily bogged down. Controversy concerning the recommendations have centered around the Council's suggestion that "classroom dress shall be at the discretion of the individual professors." Several teachers have said that they do not want the responsibility of deciding student dress to rest upon their shoulders.Under the old rules a specific norm has been given, but under the recommendations made by the Council, there is no set norm. "The great bulk of enforcement of rules of dress comes down to the teacher," said Tom Wright, A&S junior and president-elect of the Student Council. "It'll be the teacher who will enforce the rules—however, many teachers prefer to have a norm set rather than to leave the matter to their own discretion."The Dress Rules Recommendation committee of the Council is currently working on setting up a norm to present to the dean of students to appease the faculty members. Dress rules recommendations are currently being studied and considered by the Faculty Senate. Recommendations by the Senate will be made to Father Molloy, when he returns from a trip next week. By this time it is hoped that a satisfactory norm recommendation will have been submitted by the dress rules committee so that action can be taken by Father Molloy on the matter. Both Wright and Bob Perez, interim president of the Council, that the old rules are still binding until the new rules are put into effect. However, the outlook is very optimistic on the acceptance of the majority of the committee's recommendations, according to Wright. "The only reason for the delay in passing the new rules is the complications with setting up a norm for the faculty," Wright reiterated. "But, the outlook for the rules is very optimistic; however, the old rules are still binding until the new rules are put into effect," he added.

Anthony C. O'Flynn, S.J., Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. St. Thomas More is a liberal arts coordinate college for women and is associ- ated with Fordham Uni"Dr. Patricia Plante, Dean of St. Thomas, has asked for two Loyola coeds who would like to spend their junior year in New York," said Fr. O'Flynn. Reciprocally, St. Thomas would send two coeds to New Orleans to attend Loyola. "Our girls would get the benefit," continued Father O'- Flynn, "since they would pay tuition to Loyola which would amount of $600 yearly, whereas those girls coming to Loyola from St. Thomas will pay $1,500 yearly to their home Room and board in the amount of $475 is to be paid to the visitor school. Both colleges charge the identical Once the participants have been chosen, a correspondence will ensue between the girls in the program to advise each other of local customs, attire, and activities. The only prerequisite to entering the program is that of being a sophomore Loyola coed. There are no academic require"Transcripts of credits will not be exchanged with St. Thomas since a letter from the dean will allow a girl to enroll for any courses she desires and earn credit applicable to Loyola for them," said Fr. O'- Any further information may be obtained from Fr. O'- Election Dates Set April 17,18 Monday and Tuesday, April 17 and 18 are election dates for the colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, Music, Law, Dentisery and Evening Division. Ballot boxes will be placed in the area of the respective schools for casting votes. Day school students may vote between 11 and 2 p.m. on either Monday or Tuesday. Evening Division students may do so between 6 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. on the same days. The only requirements for voting in the primaries is to present an ID card to the election officials. Runoffs will be held on the following Monday and Tuesday April 24 and 25. Still unchallenged in the race for President for the A&S, BA and Music Schools are Robert Dupont, Bernie Arghiere and Alexander J. Tilikos respectively. However, write-in votes are allowed. John G. Amato, Benny Bagert, Charles Garretson and John Demoruelle are the contestants for president of Law School. There are two candidates for Dental School President— Don Donaldson and Pete Walters.CFE Drive Seeks Help Of Students Results of the first day of student participation in the Campaign for Excellence proved very successful, said Charles E. Young, assistant director of development.The reason behind the program, Young said, "is to get students used to giving while they are still in school." Donations are necessary, he explained, since Loyola gets no state funds or direct support from the Catholic Church. "When students graduate we often don't hear from them for 10 years or more—we need to close the gap," he said. The student drive here is run by the students. Young said cooperation by the students involved in the actual work has been exceptional. Sororities and fraternities have done their part by offering their time not as organizational members, but as individuals.Young commente d: "I thought PKT showed a tremendous amount of faith by donating $30 . . . that's $1 per member and pledge. If all organizations thought like that, perhaps most of our problems would be solved. "The students we have to reach, are those who don't take an active part in organizations or extracurricular activities. "The object is to encourage students to donate now, so that when they leave Loyola they will take part in the alumni association. 'Good alumni are cultivated in school. "Loyola is trying," he said, "but it has to be given a chance. Things aren't perfect, but they're improving—have improved greatly since I was at Loyola." So far, tho student campaign is "very encouraging" and "we hope for better cooperation" in the continuing solicitation. There will be tables at the T(JIF Friday which will end this year's campaign.
