MAROON LOYOLA UNIVERSITY/NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA/VOLUME L .VII/NUMBER 2/SEPTEMBER 28. 1979 Sex & drugs next door according to Playboy magazine By Linda Leavitt In its September issue, Playboy magazine cited Tulane University as the "Sons of the South," in a feature article entitled, "Sex in New Orleans." Playboy has been quoted as saying Zeta Beta Tau, a Tulane fraternity, "thinks of sex seven days a week" and holds sexually-motivated initiation rites for its pledges. One fraternity member was quoted as being into so-called unnatural sex acts. "If you give a girl a 'Lude,' you can do anything you want," a fraternity member told Playboy. Beta Theta Pi, according to Playboy, holds the "title to the leading animal house at Tulane," following suspension of Delta Kappa Epsilon (the Dekes) from campus. The article states that the Dekes performed "traditional atrocities" and other crimes against nature. "Most of it is true," said a ZBT member. Asked to comment about the article's allegations i concerning the use of Qualudes for sex on Tulane's campus, the member replied, "That's the only reason people take it - Vitamin "Q" that An official from Beta Theta Pi stated that the article was hype and misleading publicity on Playboy's part and denied any implications made concerning the fraternity. According to the Tulane Hullabaloo, the only Tulane student quoted in the article was never ad manager of the Hullubaloo staff as reoorted by Playboy. "I was surprised at the reaction, it blew over really fast," said Terry Jones, the assistant dean of students at Tulane. "We received no telephone calls and the board hasn't even talked about it." Jones noted that there was no moral outrage from the faculty and stated that it was "nonexistant."Student reaction varied. Many were outraged by the story and some members of the fraternities mentioned, "profusely apologized," according to Jones. A minority of the students thought it was a joke and enjoyed the publicity it gave the school. "I think anybody who reads in context of Playboy will not take it seriously, especially if the information is not attributed to anyone," said Brant Davis, assistant to the president of Tulane University. Davis says the university plans no legal action. Jill Pender, featuie editoi fur the HullaOaloo, wrote an editorial reappraising Playboy's conclusions about Tulane. She added, "The people who talked with Playboy were absurd and used vulgar locker room cliches." Pender also alluded to the derogatory remarks used about Newcomb students in the article. "The article made us look like a busch-league junior high school," said Pender. "It just wasn't a good reflection of sexual relations at Tulane...only that of a few individuals at Tulane." Takin' it to the streets Sitting behind his beer, listening to the band that featured "twin electric fiddles," the boy commented, "Sounds just like home." "Street Corner Jive," made hundred of Loyola students feel at home when they played at last Friday's TGIF in the quad, sponsored by the Loyola Union. More TGIF photos on page 7.

By Kenneth Harrison The Registrar's Office of Loyola University believes it has come up with a new method in pre-registration that should ease the long lines encountered every semester. Beginning this semester, the pre-registration period has been moved to the week of Nov. 12-16. Previously, the pre-registration period was held the week after students returned from Thanksgiving break. However, now that the time period has been moved up, students will now receive their pre-registration schedules a week after they return from the Thanksgiving holidays. Under the old system, schedules were mailed to students over the semester break, and the changes were made on a pre-registration day. Now, on Dec. 3, the Registrar's Office will set up an alphabetical system in which students can pick up their schedules. On the following three days,. Dec. 4,5 and 6, students will be allowed to add and drop classes on a first come, first serve basis. This new system will enable students to finalize their schedules before they leave for the semester break. "This means that students can report to school later than usual because their schedules will be completed," says Loyola's registrar, Dr. James Duplass. The Registrar's Office also convinced the other colleges in the Consortium, Xavier University and Dominican College, to adopt the new plan. However, the new plan does inconvenience the faculty and staff of the University. As early as last week, the faculty began submitting their availability for the spring session so the Consortium can be out as soon as possible. "We met with the department chairmen and the faculty and they all agreed that this was for the good of the students," says Duplass. If the new plan doesn't work as predicted, the Registrar's Office says that they will go back to the old system or come up with a new one.
