LOYOLA MAROON VOL. XLV Loyola University, New Orleans, La., Friday, September 20, 1968 No. 2 Science move slated for Dec. By FERRtL GUILLORY (Maroon Staff Writer) Ray Witham,mathematics professor, has been appointed coordinator of the move into the Science Complex. He said this week the university hopes to make the transfer during the fall semester examinations. In a statement released to the faculty and staff of the university, the Very Rev. President Homer R. Jolley,S'J\ made the appointment of Witham and said that his job will be "to aid those departments ehich will transfer operations into this new facility to effect this move efficiently and smoothly." Father Jolley said guidelines have been laid down for the use and the allocation of space in the complex and said Witham will administer these guidelines. Though he did not spell out all of the guidelines, Father Jolley said they were formulated "after long consultation with the faculty involved and with the campus planning authorities." Witham said the university has a Dec. 12 target date for the move into the new building, but he stressed that the date is tentative. The contractors have not given the university an exact date for the completion of the Science Complex, to the best of his knowledge, said Witham. However.Witham said the university hopes to begin conducting classes in the new building at the beginning of the second semester. • It should be noted,however,that once the building is completed the university must approve the construction.The corrections of any university officials find any, could delay the move-in. Those departments which will move into the Science Complex are mathematics, computer science,chemistry and physics. Father Jolley announced that,in addition.the departments of Modern Languages, Classical Languages, Psychology and Sociology and the Institute of Politics will be housed in the building temporarily. Father Jolley has designated the various university vice-presidents to review any complaints and appeals of the decisions of those who made the space allocations in the complex. Witham said he does not expect the move to interfere with the administration of final exams. But he was emphatic in explaining that plans right now are tentative and that he could not give a definite date for any particular movement.

JAMES PILLAR New history chairman McLaughlin estate leaves $1 million to Loyola Campaign for Excellence The Loyola Campaign for Excellence (CFE) has officially received a grant of $1 million from the estates of two deceased benefactors of Loyola, announced the Very Rev. President Homer R. Jolley, S.J., recently. The bequest, which totals $1,063,561, was provided for in the wills of Misses Mary Ann and Elizabeth McLaughlin, life-long residents of New Orleans and parishioners of Holy Name of Jesus Church. However, Donald K. Ross, vice-president for public relations and development, said that $909,545 was included in the CFE total released at the end of Loyola's fiscal year last July 31. He said that the balance ($154,016) is considered as "new monies" and will be included in the total for the present fiscal year. Ross said that 90 per cent of the McLaughlin sisters' estate is in the forms of stocks and bonds, while lesser amounts are in real estate and cash. As parishioners of Holy Name Church, the McLaughlin sisters became interested in the university through their friendships with several of the Jesuit priests on the faculty. Among them were the late Rev. W. Patrick Donnelly, S.J., former president of Loyola and the Rev. Karl A. Maring, S.J., chairman emeritus of the physics department. Commenting on the bequest of the McLaughlin sisters, Father Jolley said: "The Misses McLaughlin join the list of distinguished benefactors of Loyola who have dedicated their resources to the education of young men and women. Their bequest will bear fruit in the lives of generation upon generations of young people, and in the important work that it will help the university to accomplish. "We cannot fully express our gratitude for the kindness and generosity of these ladies." Blue Key sets Talent Night on March 23 Blue Key National Honor Fraternity announced this week that its annual Talent Night will be held this year in March. The show, which traditionally has been held in December, has been scheduled for Sunday, March 23,1969, Blue Key vice-president Ariel Campos said. Campos also reported that the show will be held in Municipal Auditorium and not in the Loyola Field House as in the past. The date of Talent Night was changed, Campos said, because the show would probably interfere with final first semester exams if held in December. He added that there were fewer campus events in March than earlier in the year. Campos said Blue Key, by changing the date for Talent Night, hopes to encourage better preparation of the acts and to give fraternity pledges a chance to participate. The auditions for the show are tentatively set for January, Campos said, but he urged students interested in taking part in the show to begin preparing acts soon. Allan Jacobs produces, directs New Orleans Saints network What more could fe professional football team ask for than its own radio network? Not much more—and the New Orleans Saints have just that. The Saints Radio Network carries live coverage of all Saints games to 48 radio stations throughout the southeastern portion of the United States. The Saints network is produced and directed by Allan Jacobs, Chairman of the Loyola Department of Communications. Jacobs was appointed to the post prior to the beginning of this year's football season. Jacobs explained that the Saints network is affiliated with WWL Radio Station (owned by Loyola University), and that al! broadcasts originate from WWL's facilities. The games are transmitted through a special hook-up of telephone lines, which lead from the game site, directly to the radio stations. Besides broadcasting the games, Jacobs explained that the Saints network carries "Touchdown Talk," a pre-game show which features interviews with the Saints' coaches and players. The network also carries a recap of the games. The "voice" of the Saints network is Al Wester and color commentary is by Maury MaGill, both of WWL Radio Station. Besides producing and directing the Saints network, Jacobs produces four other Saints feature programs which are heard daily over WWL Radio. Parrino outlines student manual By ED ANDERSON (Maroon Kditor) A revitalization and strengthening of the Loyola extracurricular program will hopefully be effected by next fall, announced Miss Rosalie J. Parrino, dean of women, in a recent interview. Miss Parrino said the best way such a revitalization can be made is through the writing of a student organization manual in which guidelines are laid down for the more than 80 Loyola campus organizations. She said that at present only a "core" coordinating committee exists which is composed of eleven campus leaders. However, she said, that all organizations and their presidents will be asked to advise the group in writing an equitable organization manual. Those serving on the coordinating committee are: Tom White, Mary Henderson, Randy Randall, Ann Higgins and Ed Anderson, all A&S seniors; Ed Boos, A&S junior; Bernie Arghiere and Mike McConnell, BA seniors; John Kelly and Jim Corbett, BA juniors; and Mike Nolan, law senior. Nolan and Miss Higgins were appointed co-chairmen of the coordinating committee. Miss Parrino said the purpose of such a manual would be "to solve present and future problems in communication by means of a joint effort of administration, students and faculty." She added:"There are many policies that exist now in all campus organizations. However, some of them aren't in writing; they exist more or less as tradition. We will have to both compile those that are written and codify those unwritten policies." Miss Parrino also said that the manual will "serve to inform students of procedures as to where they can obtain a microphone or some other item when needed and to help them in the perpetuation of leadership on a yearly basis." Other points that the organization manual will include are procedure of the chartering of an organization, speaker policy for chartered organizations, moderators' responsibilities to student organizations and the university and off-campus housing or club house policy for any organization. Miss Parrino said the organization manual will be "a service to the student organizations," since it will protect them from any unfair, unwritten policies which may now exist. Although the project will be headed by Miss Parrino, she said that Dr. Louis Stamatakos will serve as her adviser. Dr. Stamatakos, according to Miss Parrino, is an expert in the field of student personnel. He is on the staff of Michigan State University and has been instrumental in the writing of other similiar student organization manuals. Miss Parrino said that she hopes the work of the coordinating committee will be completed by May. If such is the case, she said, then the organization manual will become effective next fall. In an informal meeting with the coordinating committee Tuesday night, Dr. Stamatakos said:"By this project, students are called on to have a greater share and a deeper involvement in student personnel work. This project has to have your participation because it is for your benefit." Miss Parrino said that an organization manual is "badly needed" by the Loyola organizations. She said that too many organizations are operating in areas they are not chartered for. Maroon I'hoto by John McC'ollister ALMOST THERE-The new Science Complex looks like this now, but by the time semester exams begin, the building should be ready for move-in activities. Ray Witham, professor of mathematics, has been appointed coordinator of the move in procedures. For details, see accompanying story. Pirandello play to be presented October 17-19 A new adaptation of Luigi Pirandello's "Six Characters in Search of an Author" will be presented by the Drama and Speech Department on Oct. 17, 18, and 19 at 8:30 p.m. in Marquette Auditorium, Dr. Donald V. Brady, chairman of the department, recently announced. The play centers around a conflict among the author, cast, and characters of the play, said Dr. Brady. The actual characters from Pirandello's play come to life on stage and struggle with the cast so that they (the characters) can act their own drama, said Brady. The characters wish to act out their feelings on stage, but not through the cast, he said. Dr. Brady's new adaptation of the original play will feature Barney Fortier, A&S junior, as the leading man and Elaine Green, A&S junior, as the leading woman. Other members of the cast include: David Krippner, A&S junior; John Brazier, A&S sophomore; Lee Grier, A&S sophomore; Roseanne Coletti, A&S sophomore; Ron Petitjean, A&S junior; John Gillon, A&S junior; Bill Murphy, A&S junior; Wally Schneidau, A&S sophomore; Beth Hester, BA sophomore; Bill Hunter, A&S sophomore; Margie Corbett, A&S senior; Sheila Sylvester, A&S sophomore; Caroline King, A&S junior; Flora Hood, A&S sophomore; Marty Klecka, A&S freshman; and Frances Nordan, A&S freshman. Opening night there will be a free champagne intermission. Maroon Photo by BUI Hunter ONCE MORE -Dr. Donald V.
