LOYOLA MAROON Vol. XLIV Loyola University, New Orleans, La., Friday, Sept. 22, 1967 No. 2 Loyola, Tulane sponsor Glenn Yarbrough concert Recording star Glenn Yarbrough will be featured in a concert at 8:00 p.m., October 5, in the McAllister Auditorium under the joint sponsorship of the Tulane University Center Program and Loyola Student Union. Entertainment will also include the Fred Ramirez Trio and the folk-singing combination of Maffit and Davies. Yarbrough began his singing career as a soloist at Grace Church in New York when he was eight years old. He enjoyed a limited amount of success with the Limeliters singing group, but didn't make it big until he started singing on his own. Since he made the break a few years ago, Yarbrough has performed on television, at concerts and has released a number of very popular records including "Baby, the Rain Must Fall." When people think of Glenn Yarbrough they usually think of a folk singer, but he does not like to be branded in this manner. He comments: "I just try to do good songs. It doesn't matter where they come from. Melody is not important; it has to be so good that it stays in the background. What are important are the words. It's like singing poetry." Tickets for the affair may be purchased at the Loyola Bookstore or at the Tulane University Center for $2.50, $2.00 and $1.50. All seats are reserved. HERE'S HOW I SEE IT: The Rev. Whitney J. Engeran, S.J., discusses one of his works with friends at the Orleans Gallery during the opening night of his art exhibit. See story on page 2. GLENN YARBROUGH To sing hix poetry Attention, seniors October 27 is the latest date for students to submit applications for degrees to be conferred in May, 1968. All candidates must present a formal application for their degrees to the registrar. Open season declared on pledges By SUE CONNERS Members' paradise Following a hectic schedule filled with the ice-water teas, new acquaintances, smiling faces, and the sore feet of rush week, Loyola's official pledge season began in early September.The four sororities on campus. Kappa Beta Gamma, Phi Phi Phi, Theta Phi Alpha, and Sigma Sigma Sigma opened the season with a new percentage basis, allowing each sorority a quota of 31 pledges. Kappa Beta Gamma introduced its pledge season on September 5 and it will continue through October 14. During this time pledges participate in charity projects such as the hospital service work. The KBG pledges are also spending their time with INCAP, and a pledge project, usually a fund-raising plan, such as cake sales or raffles. There is no specific goal set, but the proceeds go to the sorority. Part of the "punishment" of initiation comes when the new members must carry pledge bags containing candy, bobbypins, gum, or anything a senior member may request. Diane Territo, president of Kappa Beta Gamma, feels that pledge seasonseason is a period of activity where pledges become acquainted with each other and the members and values of the sorority. KBG is initiating eight new members this year: Sandy Cambeilh, Michelle Colonel, Jan Fiegcnschue, Kathleen Hall. Lynette Mcßride, Josephine Morgan, Karen Kinsella. and Kathleen Rayhawk. Phi Phi Phi. presided over by Charlotte Joint, has received 30 pledges who began their official season on September I. It will last approximately six to eight weeks. Pledge activities for the Tri Phis include a Communion Breakfast and a Day of Recollection for pledges. Big sisters presented their little sisters with Tri Phi night shirts, while the young Tri Phis staged a picnic and parties for their older sisters. Car washes, mission drives, and selling raffle tickets are a few of the more industrious activities. Tri Phi"s purpose in .ushing is to teach the new members what the sorority is. why it is valued, and instill love of the sorority in the pledges. When asked if she thought a sorority was important in a coed's campuscampus life. Charlotte replied, "It helps each girl to do more because in unity there is greater potential for action. It seems that some difficult thing is always easier to do if you have your sisters aiding you at all times. It's particularly great for those who have never had sisters because it gives you the invaluable experience to give and take." Among the 30 new Tri Phis are: Bev Brown, Marilee Chamberlin, Connie Chapman, Sue Charbonnet, Darnell Cosgrove. Kay Couere, Carmie Cummings. Joan Danowitz. Carolyn Delorme, Donna DiLeo, Cheryl Doyle. Joy Fish, Lulu Gamard, Mary Ann Gayhartt. Jennifer Glas. Stephanie Guarisco, Mary Kelly. Bonnie Matetich. Nena Mathews, Mary Nolan, Linda O'Dwyer, Maureen O'Dwyer, Betty Pardo, Linda Pou, Donna Stephens. Sheri Tesi, Jane Trapolin. Mitzi Villere. Susan Willie. Twenty-four girls are participating in pledge season for Theta Phi Alpha sorority. Beginning on September 1. and lasting approximately six weeks, the sorority has already sponsored the September Send-Off Dance. Pledges aid the Glenmary Missions by sponsoringsponsoring cake sales and raffles; community and sorority projects also require much of the girls' time. A Communion Breakfast followed REACH helps poor, needy of rural areas Gerald Siefken, assistant director o! the Institute of Human Relations has announced a new program under the direction of his department that is designed to help the underpriviliged of New Orleans. Rural Employment, Action and Counseling Help (REACH) employs a series of six-week courses designed to stimulate interest in self-improvement.The program was started in New Orleans by the Rev. Louis J. Twomey, S.J.. director of the Institute of Human Relations. "We're trying to reach 5,000 unemployed persons in anti-poverty target areas," Mr. Siefken said. "What we're operating is mainly a motivational program." Siefken pointed out. "REACH is designed to stimulate interest in the community at all levels." REACH is under the direction of the Department of Labor and is closely allied with a previous program. Project SEESAW (Special Extension Education for Secretarial and Agricultural Workers). These programs help the hard-core unemployed and unskilled. Rural areas are the primary targets of REACH. Integrated teams of workers are in New Orleans in the Central City, Irish Channel and Desire project areas. Coordinating the unemployed and the people who have the resources to help the unemployed, REACH workers offer a curriculum aimed at three areas—vocational, family problems, and citizenship—community participation.According to Siefken. these efforts are designed "to give people the experience of making decisions about their lives. REACH uses movies, folk songs, art and poetry to make their programs seem more relevant to the lives of the people. Hilsman to appear on campus Nov. 6; Council tiff ends By FERREL GUILLORY Roger Hilsman, a member of the State Department in the Kennedy Administration, is coming to Loyola, the Student Council decided at its meeting Tuesday after three weeks of debate.His visit is going to cost the council $1,000. but the cost in council spirit may be even more important. In the process of debating the Hilsman appearance, the council seems to have become involved in over-heated discussions. Last week the council moved into closed session to carry on the debate. What has happened became a little clearer during the discussion of the Hilsman issue Tuesday. Charles lmbornone of the Evening Division said during the debate in speaking for the motion to bring Hilsman, '"We have a contract, let's keep our bargain." This apparently indicate* that a contract was made before the final Student Council vote on the matter. However, by a motion by A&S president Bob Dupont last May and passed by the council, the council members working on a speaker series were instructed not to sign contracts until the council gave its approval.II a contract was signed as apparently has been indicated, then the turmoil can be explained by the fact that it was done in, what some thought, contradition to the motion of last May. During Tuesday's debate Charlie Magarahan, A&S sophomore, who was one of the group opposed to approval at first, spoke in favor of the Hilsmun appearance. He said that the council should approve the money "in order to keep our prestige, to save the name of the school, to save face." This would further indicate problems with the council's approval of the contract, which seems to have been signed previously. However, Hilsman will be here Nov. 6. He is scheduled to give a speech that night and speak to some of the political science classes during the day. Currently, he is a professor of foreign affairs at Columbia University. During the Kennedy Administration, he was Secretary of State for Far Eastern Affairs and he has wirtten a book on the foreign policy of the Kennedy years. The turmoil in the council apparently never was in objecton to Hilsman personally. However, it is evident that the matter of his appearance here was brought up in last week's closed session, because the council at first brought it off the table Tuesday before they actually voted on it. The Student Council will also consider soon a proposal to increase the Freshman voting membership on the council to three—one for each Freshman president. As it stands now, only the chairman of the freshman committee is allowed to vote on the council.The proposal has been sent to a committee for study and should be brought up next week. A street dance and pep rally will be sponsored by the council during homecoming week, before the football game. The council approved $150 for the event. Also, treasurer Mike McConnell said that his announcement on the council's bank balance last week was $1,000 off. He said he overstated it by that much. He laid that now the Student Council has $7,410 in the bank as compared to the $8,369 he announced last week. Changes in the date book rules will be forthcoming. Tighter restrictions for organizations holding functions in Danna Center will probably be announced.Fulbright to address students on current Vietnam opinions TV interview set Sen. J.
