LOYOLA MAROON Vol. XLIV Loyola Univ«rMty, New Orleans, La., Friday, October 20, 1967 No. 6 Acting President attacks resolution By MARY O'LOUGHLIN Parking problem remains The Student Council should reevaluate its resolution on the new parking regulations and prepare recommendations to present to the Parking Committee, according to the Rev. J. Joseph Molloy, S.J., Acting President of the University. In a letter addressed October 13 to J. Thomas Wright, President of the Student Council, Father Molloy voiced his disapproval of the October 11 Student Council Resolution directed against the new parking regulations.Acting in the absence of the Very Rev. President Homer R. Jolley, S.J., who is out-of-town. Father Molloy expressed in the letter his wish to "reach a more equitable solution" if the Council could come up with any proposals to replace those of the President's Parking Committee (PPC) which went into effect October 9. Since Loyola is engaged in a period of physical expansion and growth, Father Molloy stressed the importance of all segments, faculty, staff and students, to make "every effort to continue their traditional spirit of cooperation with each other until such time as parking facilities now in the initial stages of planning are attained." According to Father Molloy, the President of the Student Council has been made a member of the PPC; this is perhaps the first time that a Loyola student representative has been invited to be a member of a University committee. However, there was no student representative present at the final meeting of the PPC before the Committee's recommendations were made to the University President. "Since by its own choice, the Student Council was not represented at the final meeting," Father Molloy said, "it seems to me that the Council would have been wise to have invited these people to the special meeting of the Council ... so that the resolution drawn up by the Council might be more factual and objective."Father Molloy says that the Council's Resolution is based on many errors."Anyone who sat in on the long and painful meetings of the Parking Committee will know that it is simply untrue to state that the student needs were not considered," Father Molloy said. Last year only senior dormitory students could receive parking decals. This year both senior and junior resident students are being issued the decals. If decals were issued to in-town students also, Father Molloy feels that "chaos" would be brought "to an already critical situation." The PPC "was sincerely concerned with the safety of individuals and the prevention of property destruction caused by traffic congestion," Father Molloy said. "In the sense of fair play, it seems that we should be willing to recognize that the issuance of decals to a great number of intown students could only result in safety hazards on the campus and even more discontent among students who have been given a license to come upon campus only to find that there is no parking space available for them." Father Molloy said not even one third of the 1350 students previously allowed decals can be accommodated on campus. To allow more students to compete for the approximately 300 parking spaces would be to create havoc on campus, he said. In his letter, Father Molloy pointed out the error in the figures arrived at by the Council. Only departmental heads are assured of a permanent parking place in faculty parking, and there are at least 30 faculty individuals who will be entitled to park in the parking zone but will not be able to be accomodated. Father Molloy said. The Council's "conclusion that 255 places are allowable to only 261 faculty and staff is clearly in error," Father Molloy said. According to figures given to the PPC by Dr. John Christman, Vice-President for Academic Affairs, there will be 356 individuals entitled to park in the 211 parking spaces now assigned for use by faculty and staff. Father Molloy pointed out that the PPC has reduced the first fine for illegal parking from the proposed $5.00 to $1.00 at the recommendation of the Council. Homecoming fare: Wolfpack football, education seminar Loyola University will celebrate its annual Homecoming Nov. 9-11 and will be highlighted by a football game between the Wolfpack football club and L.S.U.N.O.'s "Privateers" to be held at City Park. "The football game features the Loyola Wolfpack club playing the Privateers of LSUNO," Roland J. Hymel, chairman of the homecoming activities said. Hymel further said the game will be at City Park Stadium on Thursday, Nov. 9 at 8 p.m. Half-time activities will include the first presentation of the Homecoming Queen and .her Court. "Other activities have been added to the program which makes this year's quite unique," Hymel said. "One in particular is the addition of an educational panel discussion entitled, 'The Changing Face of Education: the Hazards of the Next Thirty Years.' This event is set for Friday, Nov. 10, from 6 to 7 p.m. in Rooms 2A.8, and C of the Danna Center." Panel speakers include: Ralph T. Bell, chairman of the Department of Journalism; Dr. R. T. McLean, chairman of the Department of Mathematics; Dr. Thomas R. Preston, assistant professor of English; and Dr. Jack H. Stocker, associate professor of chemistry. Moderator is Dr. John F. Christman, vice-president of academic affairs. This year Homecoming will be in two parts. The first is in early November and the second in December. Regular activities will take place from Nov. 9-11. The second phase is the annual basketball game. "The reason for the activities are split is because the homecoming committee had difficulties both in getting a band and working it into a schedule that would not conflict with exams and other events already set," Hymel said. "Even though there is a football game, a basketball game is set for Sunday, Dec. 16. We feel this is necessary to include the traditional as well as the new." A special 25-year reunion will be held for the class of 1942 on Saturday, Nov. 11. Activities will include Mass, breakfast and cocktail hour. The Mass for the class of 1942 will begin at 8 a.m. in Thomas Hall chapel, immediately followed by a breakfast in Danna Center. The cocktail hour is from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., also in Danna Center. Activities for students in particular are a street dance and pep rally on Nov. 8; Greek homecoming displays will be constructed on the campus on Nov. 9; and the Homecoming Dance in the Danna Center, on Saturday, Nov. 9. Other activities include the Homecoming convocation, luncheon, and cocktail party, all set for Friday, Nov. 10. The convocation is a program honoring the class of 1917 and will take place at 10:30 a.m. in the Loyola Field House. The luncheon with the president of the University is in the East Salon of the Royal Orleans Hotel. Chairmen of the Homecoming committees are: Robert L. Perez, football; Frederick J. Gisevius, homecoming ball; Dan E. Stapp, cocktail party; Joseph A. Park, luncheon; Dennis L. Rosseu, alumni Mass; Arthur C. Kingsmill, panel and Dr. Edward E. Levy, basketball. ROLAND J. HYMEL Homecoming chairman Eight authors hold three-day seminar in the first consortium sponsored affair One of the first major activities to be sponsored by the new consortium among Loyola, Xavier and Dominican will be a writers' symposium, according to Miller Williams, Loyola English professor. The three-day seminar is scheduled for Nov. 14, 15 and 16. During this time, eight writers will "take part in the classes and chat with the students," Williams said. Three of the authors scheduled to take part in the seminar are Loyola professors John William Corrington, Walker Percy, and Miller Williams. Dr. Corrington has written "The Upper Hand," "And Wait for the Night," and two volumes of verse, as well as reviews in magazines such as the Kenyon Review. Walker Percy lists "The Moviegoer" among his writings, in addition to articles in Partisan Review, Commonweal, and other magazines. Miller Williams has written "A Circle of Stone," a book of poems, and has five books scheduled for publication in early 1968. The other fire authors are Robert Pack, who wrote "Guarded by Women" and "A Stranger's Privilege;" Frank Hercules, "I Want a Black Doll;" John Williams, who has had articles published in American Scholar, The Nation and other magazines; Seymour Epstein, "Caught in the Music" and "Pillar of Salt;" and Dabney Stuart, "The Diving Bell." A complete schedule of events for the symposium will be released at a future date. Desegregation follow-up stresses positive striving for improvement A follow-up session of the Inter- University Desegregation Institute was held in the A la Carte dining room Saturday. The Institute was begun during the summer as an aid for teachers and administrators in New Orleans who work with student and beginning teachers in desegregated schools. The members of the Institute stated some of the problems and needs of teachers and students in desegregated schools and planned the activities of the Institute for the 1967-68 academic year. Among the problems put forth by the members of the Institute were: getting parents to take more interest in their children's education; improving a child's self-interest; getting a higher ratio of desegregated faculty in schools; opening up channels of communication between middle class teachers and lower class pupils; eliminating one-way desegregation; studying the problem of surplus qualified teachers; improving school curriculum to include inter-racial adjustments and work study problems; and introducing stronger guidance programs.Dr. Glenn Hontz, director of the Institute, cautioned members that their task is "enormous" and added that "every revolution had a beginning." They will have to "be realistic" and "select the problems" which "we have the talent to deal with" he told them. Dr. Hontz said that they must "reach outside of the Institute" in order to fulfill their goals. He stressed that they be positive and constructive in striving to bring about improvement.The Institute was conducted by the Inter-Institutional Council for Educational Development, an organization including Loyola University, St. Mary's Dominican College, Tulane University, Xavier University and Dillard University.
