Molloy asks change in frat voting By MIKE LANGE (Maroon Managing Editor) Loyola fraternities should change their black ball system in order to facilitate the acceptance of Negroes into the organizations, according to an administration official. The Rev. J. Joseph Molloy, S.J., vice-president for student affairs, indicated that he would be meeting with the leaders and moderators from the five social fraternities on campus to see what can be done. He said he was going to push towards a three-quarter vote for the national fraternities and the fraternities that only have chapters on Loyola's campus. He made the distinction because national fraternities may have to contact the national chapter in order to change their present system of voting. By the three-quarter system, it would take a 25 percent vote against a person to black ball him. As it is now, the fraternities operate on either a percentage basis (some need only a 10 per cent vote to black ball) or a straight number basis; that is, two black balls from the entire fraternity could keep someone from becoming a member of that fraternity. "As long as you have a black ball system," said Father Molloy, "I really don't think you'll ever achieve it (integration)." He said he realized that some people in the fraternities are prejudiced and are not going to change. "In this day and age, this (racial prejudice) is an anachronism," he said. "But I think way more than three-quarters of our students dont want racial prejudice." He believes all the moderators are for changing the present system, but he doesn't think they will go back to the fraternities to "dictate to the members" what to do. During fraternity rush this semester, about four Negroes weUt through rush, but none were given bids. Last year, Father Molloy said that if "by next year" the fraternities had not done all they could to implement integration, the administration would take action. At that time, he mentioned de-chartering an organization as a possible step. "I think that would be the final step," he said in Wednesday's interview, indicating that de-chartering is still a possibility. In that case, he said the fraternity would have to "go underground" because it could not use any of the university's facilities nor could it use the university's name. Col. Robert Sabolyk, moderator of the Inter-Fraternity Council, said the IFC has discussed the idea of a simple majority system being used. He said no decision has been reached on this. The dean of men said Ronald McKee, BA sophomore, has asked to speak before the IFC in connection with racial discrimination and the fraternities. McKee was not available to comment on the details of what he planned to talk about. FATHER MOLLOY To implement frat inteqration Two students receive recognition By RICK FREY (Maroon News Editor) Miss McGrath named Wilson scholar universities that I'm applying to," Dicharry said. His future plans call for study in international relations, at the University of Arizona. Dicharry is a Dean's Scholar who The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation has awarded two Loyola students with academic honors. Mary Ann McGrath, A&S senior, and Paul Dicharry, A&S senior, have been named finalist and honorable mention designate respectively. A Woodrow Wilson Fellowship Foundation award is an academic award backed by Ford Foundation funds to help future teachers finance the first year of their graduate education. Miss McGrath, who is one of 1,106 students in the United STates to receive the Woodrow Wilson Fellowship award, is majoring in sociology and Spanish. She is listed in "Who's Who in American Colleges" and is the recipient of the Dean's Award for having the highest scholastic average in her sophomore and junior years. She is also a member of Alpha Sigma Nu, Jesuit honor fraternity, and Delta Epsilon Sigma, a national honor society. "I couldn't believe it. More than anything else, I enjoyed meeting with the professors at the final interview. They're the kind of educators that I would like to be. None of this could have happened without the loving, personal care of a Jesuit university, namely, Loyola," said Miss McGrath. Miss McGrath's future plans are not finalized, but has applied to graduate schools such as Fordham, Virginia State, and Rutgers. She said she is not sure which she will attend. "I would like to go to law school here at Loyola and then use my Wilson award to study for my doctorate degree in sociology and then teach sociology of law afterward," said Miss McGrath. Dicharry, who is an honorable mention designate of the Wilson Foundation, is a political science major. "I'm very glad to receive this honor because it gives me a foothold on getting scholarships from other started his freshman year in pre-medical studies and then changed to political science. Finalists of the Wilson Foundation represented 349 colleges and were elected from over 11,704 candidates which were nominated last October. Requirements for the foundations award are that one must be nominated by the chairman of his respective department, have at least three references, and must have "excellent grades." All those receiving the awards from the foundation were interviewed by panels of college professors and academic administrators. A list of finalists has been sent to all graduate schools in he United States and Canada with the recommendation that the graduate schools make fellowship awards to these students. The graduate deans will also receive a list of 1,111 persons who were interviewed and received Honorable Mention classification. This year's selection process represented the second year of the designation program which is supported by Ford Foundation money. Before 1968, the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, with Ford Foundation funds, annually made direct financial awards to 1,000 United States and Canadian students to support their first year of graduate studv. Last year 85 per cent of the 1,124 Designates received first year fellowships from graduate schools and those remaining were supported by funds of the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation. It is expected that this year's group will have equal success in obtaining financial support for their graduate study. Fifteen regional selection committees chose the Woodrow Wilson finalists, all of whom originally were nominated by their college professors. After being nominated, candidates were invited to submit their credentials, including college transcripts, letters of recommendation, and a 1,000-word statement of their intellectual interests. Committees read the completed dossiers and selected the strongest candidates to be invited for interviews. MARY ANN McGRATH Ciardi, Peckham featured in second edition of NOR The winter edition of the New Orleans Review, a Loyola journal of literature and culture, is now in circulation through the bookstore, announced Miller Williams, NOR editor. Williams said the winter issue includes the writings of Morse Peckham, a distinguished man of letters whose primary interests include studies in critical theory as well as the philosophy of language and the interrelations of the arts. Also featured in the winter edition are the poems of John Ciardi, poetry editor of the Saturday Review and Dabney Stuart, a participant in the 1967 Department of English's Writers Symposium. Another highlight of this quarter's edition is a photographic essay by NOR art director Leonard White. White has chosen for his subject "Funeral," a pictorial sequence featuring photos of a New Orleans Negro jazz funeral. Articles by Shane Stevens, a participant in the recent English department's Writers' Symposium, and Dr. Shea Halle, a noted New Orleans physician, are also included. Joining the staff with the NOR's winter edition is Doug Ramsey, noted New Orleans newsman and established radio reviewer of jazz. Ramsey will serve as the publication's regular jazz reviewer. Williams and Tom Bell, managing editor of the magazine, said that the job of editing copy for the spring edition will "begin sometime this week." Williams said that the upcoming spring edition will have an interview with editorpublisher-lecturer Hodding Carter. He also added that photographs are more widely used in other parts of this issue than in the first one. He also revealed that the third edition will be an "issue of discovery featuring lesser known writers with exciting works." Rank, tenure committee formed by faculty group By LOUIS LASSUS (Maroon Special Reporter) The University Senate recently formed a temporary University Committee on Rank and Tenure to hear a pending case involving a member of the Department of English. The committee is composed of seven faculty members: Miss Janet Riley, associate professor of law; Mr. Rudolf Coper, chairman of the Department of Economics; Charles Braswell, Chairman of the Department of Music Therapy; Peter Cangelosi, assistant professor of history and political science; Dr. John Corrington, associate professor of English; the Rev. James Carter, S.J., associate professor of physics; and Dr. David Keiffer Jr., chairman of the Department of Physics. The committee, originally formed to research and inform the senate of the structure and purpose of a university rank and tenure committee, was asked at the senate's February 20 meeting by the Very Rev. President Homer R. Jolley, S.J. to handle the pending case in the English department. The name of the person involved and the nature of the problem will not be revealed until after the case has been heard, according to Dr. Preston, chairman of the Department of English. Father Jolley said that since the case is urgent, "the decision of this committee in this case is final." However, he said, this does not set a precedent. The temporary committee will only serve as a rank and tenure committee in this special case. He set one condition that the must adhere to. "I must feel assured of soundness of procedure which you will follow," he said. Father Jolley noted that each university "has to develop its own orderly set of procedures" in forming a university rank and tenure committee and requested that the senate draw up a plan for a university rank and tenure committee after this case has been dealt with. At Loyola there are four ranks for faculty members—instructor, assistant professor, associate professor, and full professor. A faculty member receives tenure after he has been with the university for seven years. Tenure is a kind of safeguard for teacher's rights. After a faculty member has been granted tenure he cannot be dismissed from the university except in very grave or compelling circumstances. At present each college has its own rank and tenure committee which use different procedures for granting rank and tenure. They also have different ways of putting members on the committees. The new committee was an effort by the senate to get a uniform procedure for handling rank and tenure and for giving the faculty more participation in putting members on the committee. The new committee was to submit a report to the senate stating what it considers to be the function and structure of a university rank and tenure committee. Some senate members felt that there should only be one university-wide rank and tenure committee which would deal with all cases in the university. Others felt the committee should be a board of appeals which would only function if the college rank and tenure committees could not deal with certain special cases. Others felt that it should serve only as a final proving authority on rank and tenure. The problem of who should serve on such a committee is also a question which the temporary committee will deal with. At the meeting in which the committee was formed there was a discussion as to whether only tenured faculty should serve on the committee or both tenured and non-tenured faculty should serve. There were arguments that only tenured faculty would be in a position to handle such a job since only they would have no axes to grind. Some argued that a committee with only tenured members would be too limited in their views and that untenured members should not be excluded from the group.
