HARD AT WORK-Bernie Arghiere, Student Union president, and Beverly Brown, hospitality committee chairman, go over last minute plans for the upcoming Student Union Week. Leaders need 'patient persuasion' By GARY ATKINS (Maroon Desk Editor) Says Father Jolley Student leaders who do not walk a fine line between "patient persuasion" and getting things done quickly may well find themselves replaced by revolutionaries who only want to destroy, according to the Very Rev. President Homer R. Jolley, S.J. We have to build a university "where student leaders become experts in the arts of persuasion or else are voted out of office; where they learn to find a working balance between patience and urgency, knowing that if they fail their future will be in the hands of revolutionaries whose only interest is to destroy." Father Jolley recently told a group of Tulane University students. Father Jolley delivered the keynote address of the Fifth Annual Student Leadership Conference held last week at Tulane. The conference, with a theme of "Student Power through Participation," was sponsored by two Tulane organizations, Omicron Delta Kappa and the Mortar. Board. Father Jolley said if student leaders wished to be "constructive" instead of destructive, they had to do two things: submit positive suggestions which are "well thought out" and based on "solid logical reasoning," and use established channels of communication. Students and faculty, he said, have to tread a "fine line between extremes." "Their enthusiasm for participatory democracy can not be allowed to erect a bureaucratic maze of legislative committees and hearings," he said. Also, student leaders must "learn the lesson of all democratic systems," he said. "It's a difficult process to build a majority and peaceful change means patient persuasion." The problem though is that campus politicians have to get things done while using "patient persuasion," he said. They must go down a fine line so they don't destroy in their urge to get something done quickly, he said. "The price of delay is often revolution," Father Jolley declared. "And when revolution comes, there will be a clash between authority and extremists—with no real victory for anyone." He also advised the students not to let it be said about Tulane, as it is said about some universities, that campus politics is*a joke. Campus politics must deal with "fundamentals," he said, not just with parking facilities, bringing beer on campus, dorm rules and the price of cafeteria food. He proposed that several "rigid demands" in universities be re-examined, such as degrees, the lecture system and the "comprehensive, thorough coverage" of a course. The comprehensive coverage is not as important as the student's attitude toward learning and learning how to solve a problem, he said. "The comprehensiveness can come as the student practices in his field." He proposed that there be more field study learning and called upon student leaders to interest the student body in a series of discussions "from which serious suggestions would flow to feed into the system." "With responsible leadership on both sides of the academic desk and with the participation of the heretofore silent majority," he said, "we can make the academic and moral standards predominant on the college campus." The university, he said, could then be made into a place where "judgments are made and scrutinized, frontiers of knowledge are explored and pushed back, and the student grows into adulthood with a balance between both his intellect and the other facets of his personality. Reid Chamgagne disappointed in Loyoia grape strike response "Grapes are no longer something funny when human respect is involved," said Reid Champagne at a meeting Monday night of the student part of the New Orleans Friends of Farm Workers (NOFFW) held in the Institute of Human Relations Office. Champagne, A&s sophomore from Chalmette, said he was disappointed by the reaction Loyola students have had toward the movement. The movement is in support of a strike by the Delano grape workers in California. The NOFFW is planning to boycott several local chain stores if these stores do not support the proposed boycott and stop buying California grapes. According to Champagne, leader of the student drive, the response of the local chain stores contacted to date has been "negative." Picketing of one chain of local stores is planned for Saturday, Oct. 12. However, in order for the picketing to be successful, more students are needed, he said. At Monday night's meeting only seven students were present and two of those were from Xavier University. "We need students who are sympathetic and are willing to work, said Champagne. But he added that students at Loyola do not seem to be interested or sympathetic to any such cause. "This is my second attempt to organize students at Loyola, but they don't seem to care about anything. When we were passing out literature concerning the grape strike, people just laughed at us," he said. "Also, since this is a Catholic University, you would think the people would be at least Christian enough to come to a meeting to find out about what we are up against," he said. "I really can't understand it." Champagne said he planned no more meetings on the Loyola campus. He said sympathetic groups on other campuses are being formed and if there are not enough workers from one school, students from all the local universities should unite in order to make the picketing effective. "Our job is to exert pressure on grocers by picketing and to inform the buyers as to what the situation is," he said. He feels the grocers will not like the bad publicity picketing brings and will, therefore, give in eventually. He said boycotts have been effected in New York, Detroit, Chicago and Boston and that smaller cities must also join the boycott if it is to be successful. "Even if we get a 100 per cent boycott in New Orleans, the strike still won't be successful until all markets stop buying California grapes," Champagne said. He estimated that 98 per cent of all grapes used in the United States come from California. Concerning local endorsement of their movement, Jim Fahey, assistant director of the Institute of Human Relations and co-leader of the student drive, said a letter has been sent to New Orleans Archbishop Philip M. Hannan and the NOFFW are presently waiting for him to return the signed letter of endorsement. E.P. Dunn, Saga Food Service director, has agreed to stop buying grapes from California and also wine made from California grapes. "Mr. Dunn has been sympathetic with the strikers and we are very appreciative of this," Champagne said. He said the Louisiana AFI-CIO will announce their official support Sunday. THE REV. HOMER JOLLEY, S.J. At Tulane Student Leadership Conference Nine named to new board The university Board of Communications was appointed this week by the Very Rev. President Homer R. Jolley, S. J. The board is the third of five committees recommended by the recently-approved student rights policy to be implemented. The two committees previously appointed were the Standing Committee on Student Rights and Freedoms (SCSRF) and the Student Affairs Policy Advisory Committee. The communications board consists of nine members—three administrators, three faculty members and three students. The members are: James Volny, librarian; Charles Brennan, director of public relations; and Col. Robert Sabolyk, dean of men, administration representatives; Allan Jacobs, chairman of the Department of Communications; R. T. Bell, chairman of the Department of Journalism; and Miss Janet Riley, faculty member in the law school, faculty representatives; Joseph Malinda, Ferrel Guillory and John Wiemann, all A&S seniors, student representatives. Miss Riley will serve as chairman of the board. Jacobs and Malinda represent the communications department on the board and Bell and Guillory represent the Journalism department. The appointments of Miss Riley and Wiemann are interim appointments, according to Father Jolley's announcement. They were recommended by the Faculty Senate president and the Student Council president, respectively. The two posts are supposed to be filled by an election held in the Faculty Senate and the student body. The interim faculty appointment was made, Father Jolley said, "because it is not feasible to hold a faculty election at this time." The interim student appointment was made, Father Jolley said, because "to carry out literally the provisions outlined" in the rights policy "would mean that the student body would be under-represented on the Board of Communications this year." In his announcement of the appointments, Father Jolley also said that the SCSRF would "address itself without delay to clarifying the procedural ambiguity and to setting up a mechanism for holding this election as soon as practicable." No election procedure for the student post is outlined in the rights document. The board is given four responsibilities by the rights report: to establish procedures for the appointment and removal of editors and broadcast managers; to promote "an attitude of mature Christian responsibility" in the on-campus communications media; to "insure that each of the media recognizes and accepts its obligations to itself, the University and its standards, and the community at large;" and to see that policies pertaining to the media are enforced. The SCSRF serves as an interpreting body of the student freedoms policy. Symposium slated on drug education By FERREL GUILLORY (Maroon Staff Reporter) A symposium on the use and effects of marijuana and hallucinogenic drugs will be held at Loyola Oct. 22 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. in rooms 2A, B and C of Danna Center. Sponsored by the Loyola Department of Health and the Student Union, the symposium will be led by a panel of four experts. Dr. John G. Arnold Jr., chairman of the Departments of Health and Medical Technology, will preside over the session. The Rev. Thomas H. Clancy, S.J., vice-president for academic affairs, has written a letter to all faculty members asking them to dismiss students from classes without penalty during the time of the symposium. However, Father Clancy said, teachers may choose to hold classes at that time if they wish. Dr. Arnold said he had asked the deans of the undergraduate schools to dismiss classes during the symposium but they declined. The symposium is open to all Loyola students and faculty members, Dr. Arnold said. He added that persons attending the symposium will be required to present their ID cards at the door. He said the university wants to prevent outside trouble-makers from disrupting the discussion. The members of the symposium panel are: Dr. Edward J. Ireland, professor of pharmacology of the School of Dentistry, who has been studying the effects of drugs since 1934. He will speak on the chemistry of drugs. Dr. Charles F. Bartell, assistant professor of psychology, who will discuss the attitudinal and advisory problems related to drug usage. Captain Clarence Giarrusso of the narcotics division of the New Orleans Police Department, who will have just returned from a meeting on the drug problem in Puerto Rico. Giarruso will speak on the legal aspects of the problem. Dr. Gene L. Usdin, director of psychiatric services of Touro Mental Health Center and a professor at the LSU School of Medicine. He will discuss the medical aspects of the drug problem. "It's primarily a student information panel," Dr. Arnold said. "I hope that it's an education on both sides." Dr. Arnold explained that the panelists were selected for their scientific competence on the matter. He said each person will speak for about 15 minutes, after which there will be a general question and answer session. The idea of a drug education program was first presented publicly by a group of faculty members who suggested it to the Very Rev. President Homer R. Jolley, S.J., last year during the controversy concerning the arrest of some students on marijuana charges and the revelation that police undercover agents were stationed in Biever Hall. The group of faculty members recommended in a letter that the university set aside one day for a drug education program. However, Dr. Arnold said he did not think this symposium was a direct result of the letter. He said that the health department is aware that many students are talking about the problem and that he thought a "scientifically proper" discussion of the problem would help clear students' thoughts. "If this proves good, we may have another one next semester and every semester," said Dr. Arnold. APO movie The APO Movie this week is "Stagecoach," starring Red Buttons, Ann-Margret and Bing Crosby. The movie will be shown in Marquette Auditorium tonight at 7 p.m. and 9%15 p.m. However, the feature will be screened tomorrow night at 8 p.m. only. Admission to the movie is 50 cents.
