THE CONGLOMERATE 



Seot8*«r 1, 1972 




Holiday Monday 










Monday, Labor Day, will be a school holi- 
day at Centenary this year, so offices will 
be closed and classes won't^be held. 

The Centenary Library will close during 
the day in accord with the all campus Labor 
Day holiday announced by President Allen. 
It will be open that night from 7 to 11 p.m. 
to meet the needs of students returning 
from their holiday weekends. 

For the benefit of the students who re- 
main on campus, the Library will observe its 
regular hours during the first two days of 
the Labor Day Weekend. Saturday, 1 to 5 
p.m., and Sunday, 2 to 10 p.m. 

New Profs 

If your favorite professor from last semes- 
ter has left, don't pout. His replacement 
is already at the blackboard, well-qualified 
and determined to earn your confidence. In 
all, eight new teachers have been placed on 
the Centenary payroll. We'll introduce them 
in (what else, status watchers?) alphabetical 
order! 

The new instructor in Theater and Speech, . 
stepping into a major role vacated by Miss 
Ruth Alexander, is Miss Barbara F. Acker, 
who has a B.F.A. from the University of 
Texas (1969), and an M.A. from Case Western 
Reserve University (19-70) . 

Dr. William J. Ballard is the new director 
of the Centenary College Choir, assuming a 
'post founded thirty years ago by Dr. A.C. 
"Cheesy" Voran. Former director of choral 
organizations at Northwestern University in 
Illinois, Dr. Ballard founded the profes- 
sional Tudor Singers in Chicago. 

Centenary's new Associate Professor of 
Psychology, Dr. Lewis A. Bettinger, attended 
Ohio State University, from which he obtain- 
ed his Ph.D. in 1966. 

Another new professor is Mr. Rafael de 
Acha, who will serve as an Assistant 
Professor in the Music Department. Mr. de 
Acha received his B.M. in 1970 from the 
College Conservatory of Music, and his M.M. 
in 1972 from the New England Conservatory 
of Music. 

Stepping into the History Department 
following the death of Dr. Leroy Vogel is 
Dr. Edward F. Haas, Jr. Dr. Haas received 
his B.A. from Tulane in 1967, and his Ph.D. 
from the University of Maryland in 1972. 

Former Army Counter-intelligence 
specialist Dr. Theodore Kauss is the new 
Associate Professor of Education. Dr. 
Kauss, who most recently served as a manage- 
ment consultant in Chicago, received his 
Ph.D. in educational administration from 
Northwestern University in Illinois in 1968. 
(Maybe he sang in one of Dr. Ballard's 
choirs!?) 

Dr. Curbelo, too, has left Centenary, 
replaced by Dr. Arnold M. Penuel, who 
obtained his Ph.D. in 1968 from the 
University of Illinois, specializing in 
19th and 20th century Spanish literature. 
Dr. Penuel spent nearly four years as an 
officer in the U.S. Navy. 

Finally (in alphabet only), Dr. Jeffrey 
Trahan has been hired as the new Assistant 
Professor of Physics, and will take on some 
duties formerly carried out by Mr. John 
Williams. Dr. Trahan, a graduateof Tulane, 
received his Ph.D. at LSU in 1972*. 



Gents Decide 
Nixon's the One 

Students, faculty, staff, and administra- 
tion all had their moment in the ballot box 
during Fall Registration in a mock election 
conducted by student John Roberts. When it 
was all over but the shouting, Richard Nixon 
had scored a better than 3 1/2-to-l land- 
slide over Democratic challenger George 
McGovern . 

Nixon pulled in 323 votes, leaving the 
Senator 89. Lame-duck Republican Congres- 
sman John Schmitz, running as the nominee 
of the American (Wallace) Party, did not 
attract a single vote. 

In a separate balloting, Vice-President 
Spiro (Ted) Agnew drew 222 votes to retain 
his office, while democrat Shriver garnered 
116, leaving Americanite Anderson 8. 

Senator McGovem scored best among the 
faculty, drawing 461 of their votes, while 
he fared poorest with the administration, 
picking up just 12% of that tabulation. 
Nixon carried both the staff vote (661 of 
the three voting) and the student vote, 
where he gained 771 among the frosh and 801 
each among the other three classes. Three 
hundred and seventy -one students participated 

Over all, the President scored 781 to 
McGovern's 221. Agnew, meanwhile, was pull- 
ing down 641 to Shriver's 341, with 
Anderson drawing the final 2% . 

Thus, at Centenary College of Louisiana, 
at least, it would appear that the result 
is Nixon . , . now. 



Bishop 



Dr. Finis A. Crutchfield Jr. is the new 
bishop of the Louisiana Conference of the 
United Methodist Church, according to 
Cecil E. Bland Jr., conference information 
director. 

His assignment to the Louisiana area 
was made last month along with the assign- 
ments of three other new bishops within 
the South Central Jurisdiction of the 
Church. 

He succeeds Bishop Aubrey G. Walton 
of New Orleans who recently retired as 
resident bishop, a position he had filled 
since 1960. 

Bishop Crutchfield, 55, has been pastor 
of Boston Avenue United Methodist Church 
in Tulsa, Okla. , for the past 12 years! 





Orientation Dessert at Dr. Shaw's . 

Centenary Choice 
a Relative Thing? 

by Jeff Daiell 

It may have been coincidence, sheer 
luck, or the natural urge to support one's 
family visibly, but of six freshmen and 
transfers I interviewed Monday night at 
the Get-Together Dance, three had relatives 
on campus. 

I decided Monday afternoon to discover 
why students chose Centenary, and how our 
Orientation Program affects their opinions 
of our school. 

Jeff Pomeroy, who is in the unique posi- 
tion of being both a freshman and a trans- 
fer student, chose Centenary since his 
father lives in Shreveport, and since it 
would be inexpensive for him to attend our 
College. 

Marc Sargent, whose sister, Pam, is a 
former CONGLOMERATE Managing Editor, came 
to Centenary partially because of Pam and 
also because he had visited our campus 
previously and liked it. 

Freshman Becky Lynch doesn't know why 
she came to Centenary, but Cal Smith was 
positive in his response. Cal chose the 
School of the Sleepy Silver Bayou because 
of our basketball program, in order to get 
away from home, and due to his having had 
a good time during his prior visits to 
the campus. 

Seventeen -year old Karen Stephenson, 
also a freshman, couldn't tell us her 
reason (s) for picking Centenary. Glenn 
Guerin came here because of his father, 
the free tuition, and because Centenary 
offered him the best opportunity for his 
college career. 

As for Orientation, three (Becky, Karen, 
and Glenn) comment favorably, while Marc 
and Cal expressed dissatisfaction. Jeff, 
perhaps wiser in his unusual situation, 
abstained from most of the program. 



Over 100 students gathered in the band- 
shell Monday at 11:30 to discuss visitation. 

Students Protest 
New Hours 

by Carol Bickers 
and Jeff Daiell 



In an effort to reinstate the Spring 1972 
dorm visitation rights, the Student Senate 
met at a called meeting on Tuesday to act 
on a motion in favor of the open dorm hours 
of last semester. 

Between 100 and 110 Centenary students 
had gathered in the amphitheatre at 11:30, 
Monday night (August 28) to formulate 
action to protest and alter President Allen's 
summer decision to radically reduce dorm 
visitation hours. 

A petition requesting a return to last 
semester's visitation rules (Sunday through 
Thursday 12 noon to 12 midnight, Friday and 
Saturday 12 noon to 2 a.m. for men, and for 
the women 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through 
Thursday, 2 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. on Friday 
and Saturday) was read and circulated. Then, 
a letter, a proposed Senate resolution, was 
read. 

Although many students were angry and 
bitter about what they considered an arbi- 
trary action, both tempers and manners were 
maintained. 

By Tuesday at 6:00 p.m., over 300 students 
had signed the petition. 

The letter written by five Centenary 
students concerning visitation was read to 
the Senate by President Rick Clark. (This 
same letter appears in this week's issue of 
the CONGLOMERATE.) It was also pointed out 
at this time by Clark that 901 of the men 
were allowed visitation rights this semester 
and 65% of the women residents were given 
the open dorm privileges. 

In following President. Allen's suggestion 
that the students go through the democratic 
process in attempting to regain their visi- 
tation privileges, the Senate passed the 
proposal presented by Sophmore Senator Jeff 
Hendricks calling for the reinstatement of 
last semester's hours. This proposal states 
that: 

The Student Senate, being the representa- 
tive body of students, endorses the visita- 
tion policy utilized in Spring 1972. 

Due to a strong need for this visitation, 
as shown by the petition and other means of 
communication , the Senate asks that the 
visitation hours of Spring Semester 1972 be 
reinstated. 

The Senate's recommendation will now be 
sent to the Student Life Committee for their 
approval. If the motion is approved by the 
Committee at their Tuesday meeting, it will 
then be sent to President Allen.

Facts Trickle In 



As of Tuesday afternoon, 750 students had 
registered to attend Owtenary College. 
There are approximately 25 students who have 
pre-arranged late registration, and our 
student population could, says Registrar 
Dr. Lowrey, hit 800. 

Of those, says Dean of Students Eddy 
Miller, approximately sixty per cent are 
dorm students. That's 415, with 212 women 
and 203 men. 

Ninety-five students are living in pri- 
vate rooms, paying $265 this term rather 
than $200. Forty-two are women and fifty- 
three are men. 

Orientation saw 227 students (freshmen, 
transfers, and readmissees) . 

Two hundred and seven automobiles were 
registered, and between 400 and 440 meal 
tickets will have been issued by the end 
of next week. 

Library Gets 
Bishop's Books 

Aubrey G. Walton, Bishop of the Louisi- 
ana Area of the United Methodist Church, 
1960-1972, has announced plans to give 
his library and his personal papers for 
his years in the Louisiana bishopric to 
Centenary College. When the Bishop 
retired in June, he made the first por- 
tion of his gift available to the College. 
Several Methodist ministers and laymen 
in the New Orleans area cooperated in 
bringing the thirteen boxes in the initial 
gift from the Bishop's office in New 
Orleans to Shreveport when the/ attended 
the Annual Meeting of the Louisiana 
Conference of the United Methodist Church 
at Centenary at the beginning of the 
summer. 

The Library is pleased with the Bishop's 
current gift of some 250 books and plans 
to make the most important items available 
for use within the next few weeks. The 
collection includes a number or histories 
of Methodism in England and America, 
various biographies of John Wesley and 
other Methodist leaders, and several long 
runs of Methodist periodicals. Many items 
date from the eighteenth and early 
nineteenth centuries , including the 
memoirs and autobiographies of several of 
the frontier circuit riders. The collec- 
tion will be of special interest to stu- 
dents of history and religion. 

Bishop Walton, who now resides in 
Little Rock, plans to review the remain- 
ing portions of his library and personal 
records during his retirement and to give 
these materials to the Centenary Library 
in installments during the next few years. 
The result will be a much enriched collec- 
tion of Methodist materials, which will 
be of great value for research in social 
and church history in the United States 
and England. 




Colours Tonight 

Like a soft and gentle summer breeze 
warmly sighing over a Texas meadow, The 
Colours will float into town Friday night. 

The concert will begin at 8 p.m., Fri- 
day, September 1st, in the SUB (Student 
Union Building). As things stand now, 
there will be three segments of forty- 
five minutes each. 

Heavily tapping the talents of new 
composers, The Colours play country, 
folk, rock, and pop, bringing a new and 
refreshing dimension to each, glorifying 
the beauty of the natural things around 
us. Too, The Colours flavor their act 
with a robust sense of humor. 

Susan Swenson, Gordon Parrish, Jim 
Ratts, and Marc Parker are all from 
Texas, and have been performing profes- 
sionally since the Spring of 1971. 

There will be no admission charge, 
and the performance is to be given for 
Centenary students only. Come and see 
The Colours , and walk away on the wind . 

Big Blast Set for 
Next Weekend 

Fun and games await Centenary students 
at the first All-Cafflpws Weekend next week 
which will be highlighted by the Sept. 8 
appearance of rock group Mason Prof fit. 

At the special Senate meeting Tuesday, 
Rick G ark asked for suggestions for the 
event. Clark suggested a possible drag 
race for Friday and a couples -only banana 
eating contest for Satur 

In further action, G;<rk noted that he 
would appoint someone to organize the 
activities for the All -Campus Weekend.

THE CONGLOMERATE 



September 1, 1972 



DR. LEROY VOGEL 

Dr. Leroy Vogel, Chairman of the 
Department of History and Government, 
died on June 23rd of this year. Dr. Vogel, 
who began his career with Centenary in 
1946, was a former Dean of the College 
(1954-1962) before retiring from that 
position due to poor health. 

Dr. Vogel was a member of the staff 
who added distinction to the College. 
He had appeared in "Who's Who in America", 
and his gallant struggle against the 
cancer to which he finally succumbed 
so inspired students that he last year 
saw the YONCOPIN dedicated to him. 

Dr. Vogel is survived by his wife, 
Betty Garrett Vogel, the new Director 
of Financial Aid. 

Centenary will miss Dr. Vogel, both 
for his professorial and academic 
excellence, and for his courage, a tri- 
bute to the glory which is humanity's 
heritage. 

MRS. ROSEMARY EUBANKS 

Mrs. F.H. (Rosemary) Eubanks, long- 
time Centenary Director of Financial 
Aid, died on the 19th of July. 

Mrs. Eubanks will be remembered for 
her courtesy and skill in the Financial 
Aid office, a position fraught with the 
ever-present hazard of ruin and animosity, 
both of which her efficiency always pre- 
vented. 

She has been succeeded by Mrs. Betty 
Garrett Vogel. 




EDITORIAL 

Ahoy there, you fat cats I Got four 
hundred dollars to spare? Ship a little our 
way and we'll put it to good use/ 

Despite the light approach, this is a 
serious plea. The CONGLOMERATE has been 
offered a list of 500 high schools visited 
the Centenary recruiters in the last few 
years, and would like to put the list to use. 
The proposal? Simple. For about $400, we 
can send the CONGLOMERATE each week to the 
libraries at those 500 schools. To accom- 
plish what? 

Over the summer numerous favorable 
comments concerning the CONGLOMERATE fil- 
tered back to us from high school students 
and teachers . Not to brag, but they seem, 
mostly, to like us a lot. For example, the 
journalism instructor at one Shreveport high 
school has asked to drop by in the next few 
weeks with some of his students to let 
us show them our procedures and explain our 
ideas. When you're having fun putting out 
a paper, we believe it all filters out to 
the readers . 

If a paper is fun, readable, and meaty, 
it's remembered. So what would be accom- 
plished by sending the CONGLOMERATE to 500 
high school libraries? Plenty. 

We call it "The CONGLOMERATE Centenary 
Softsell Campaign." If we can get the money 
in the next couple of weeks, we'll start 
sending the papers. No other costs will 
eat up the money. Could there be a more 
worthy, efficient donation to directly , 
immediately aid Centenary? — TLC

REMEMBER OUR RIGHTS! 



To the Editor: 

Are we not a community where certain 
rights must be remembered if the freedom 
of students is to be preserved? The whole 
controversy over visitation is the basic 
question: Do we as persons have the right 
of our own living surroundings? To this I 
say Yes; and to deny us this right, the 
administration is dangerously tampering 
with our freedom as students and as human 
beings . 

Sincerely, a former student, 
Mollie Leenhouts 

MAKE UP YOUR MIND, CENTENARY 

To the Editor: 

I am insulted by President Allen's 
decision regarding visitation hours. 
His ordering of priorities is wrong in 
my opinion; students should come before 
parents in such a matter. 

Does the college want to treat us as 
children, or does it want to foster the 
creative development of responsible 
individuals? 

Mike Marcel 1 




OVERCOMING APATHY 

To the Editor: 



I have just returned this evening from a 
meeting of concerned students due to the 
new visitation policy. I am very pleased 
with and proud of the way the meeting was 
conducted, and I feel more went on there than 
a few exchanges of ideas and opinions. I 
believe we as a student body are sincerely 
dealing with this problem and are willing to 
put forth a whole-hearted effort to change 
the visitation policy back to its original 
form. 

I am in favor of the change, and I believe 
if we keep our present attitudes , there is 
a possibility of receiving the change. If 
anything, we are showing that the students 
of Centenary College are overcoming a serious 
case of apathy. 

If you want something done, the "doing" 
must start with you first. 

Hopefully, 
Cindy Yeast 

REPREHENSIBLE MOVE 
To the Editor: 

I am a town student and as such take no 
part in dorm life on the Centenary campus, 
but I feel that Dr. Allen's recent decision 
to revamp dorm visiting hours is reprehensi- 
ble. I particularly object to the fact that 
this move was made during the summer term. 

Sincerely yours , 
Dick Welch 




Once upon a postnoon dreary, while I 
studied, sick and weary, 

Sneering through a volume of my 
textual lore, 

Suddenly there came a knocking, as of 
someone sharply tocking, 

As of knuckles loudly rocking, rocking 
hard my dorm room doer. 

And the crackling, rustling quaking of 
an old green paint job flaking 

Scared me, pared me with fantastic horror 
never felt before. 

'Yes?" I answered, very oddly, although 
now my blood ran coldly, 

Running now so oddly oldly, oldly to my 
very core. 

But no answer came then to me, and the 
terror knifed right through me; 

Af Tightened now was I quite sore. 

Then the door quite open flew, and I was 
struck with fear anew! 

For when I saw the doorway view, that view 
sent me to the floor. 

For a woman there was standing, with lust- 
filled eyes she stood there panting, 

Waiting till I rose once more. 

When I rose she came right for me, with 
clawing nails she scratched and tore me, 

All her passion she spent for me, for me 
she came with scream and roar. 

"Why," I yelled, "this mad desire? Why 
bum you with lustful fire? 

Get thee gone, you little whore!" 

"Nay!" she cried, "do not so send me! 
All your love and warmth now lend me! 

Do not further rip and rend me, rend me 
as a spitted boar!" 



" 'Tis not yet three!" I cried aloud, 
and I was feeling very proud, 

Having brought morals to the fort. 

"I could not wait!" she cried in kind, 
"I was strapped and in a bind, 

A little love I had to find, find right 
now, and wait no more!" 

Then I punched her, in the face, for I 
found her a disgrace, 

To seek a kiss at two, not four. 

'You're nothing but a tramp, a slut!" 
Then I punched her in the gut, 

Kneed her iaw to keep it shut, shut so I 
would hear no more. 

Slowly, without grace, she fell; little 
vixen, fiend from Hell! 

I had liked my little chore. 

Then into my hands I took her, rattled, 
racked, and further shook her; 

Just as I shrieked, "Sinful hooker!", I 
once more tumbled to the floor. 

Against my fate I loudly raged -- for she 
and I were quite engaged -- 

To be wed in three days more! 

Wretchedly I whined and moaned, grievously 
I cried and groaned, 

Endless I grief intoned, intoned and cried 
and whimpered more. 

Had she waited but 'til three, the time 
apprtoved by each Trustee! 

We might have shared our love some more. 

But alas, she could not wait, so she met 
her wretched fate, 

And, in her simple, oaken crate, she 
longs for freer days of yore.

METHODIST BACKSLIDING 



To the Editor: 

Centenary College is one of the better 
institutions of higher learning in the South, 
and I dare say, also the Nation as a whole. 
But any school cannot function smoothly 
unless there is a working equilibrium be- 
tween all persons connected with the continu- 
ing operation of the institution. That is, 
namely the students, faculty, administration 
and to a somewhat lesser degree, the stu- 
dents ' parents . 

In the past, the cooperation amongst 
these different segments of our College com- 
munity has been fairly smooth. The question 
of opposite sex visitation had been raised, 
and the problem solved, in previous academic 
years . A workable agreement between the 
student body and the administration concern- 
ing visitation had been reached. Both parties 
did not get the exact terms that each wanted, 
so the result was last year's limited visita- 
tion, a compromise. The compromise proposal 
went through the stated channels of communi- 
cation of the College and was approved by the 
students, faculty, and administration. 

So academic year~T9~72 arrives and the 
students find themselves back in the position 
that had been resolved in the previous year. 
Is this not a fallacy of the highest degree? 
Must the students of this College petition 
their grievances each fall in order to receive 
their hard- fought -for privileges that were 
instituted in prior semesters? President 
Allen's letter of June 22, 1972, to students 
and parents was of particular disturbance 
to me. I feel that the letter lacked tact 
and was loaded with false implications. 
Firstly, I do not regard my "living quarters" 
on campus as merely a 'bedroom." Granted, 
there is a bed there , but there are also 
desks, chairs, research materials , etc. 
In fact, I have more bookcases than beds in 
my room, so why not call it a 'book and book- 
case room?" "Bedroom" is absurd. I feel 
that the word "bedroom" was loaded to create 
a wrong impression concerning what one's 
living quarters are used for. 

In closing I would like to ask the 
administration if the special committee that 
met this summer included parents who are in 
favor of visitation, or was the committee 
just a polarization of the students for, 
and parents against visitation? Centenary 
College of Louisiana, 1825, must not allow 
itself to stagnate. There is already too 
much mediocrity in the world today. 

Very Sincerely Yours , 
Thomas H. Musselman 



SEALED WITHA KISS 



To the Editor: 

Many Centenary students are disillusioned 
with the decisions made this summer concern- 
ing the changes of visitation hours . The 
sources of this disappointment are manifold: 

1. President Allen's action unfortunately 
reinstitutes the principle "in loco parentis," 
the belief that the college should serve in 
place of parents when the student is at 
school. 

The Steering Committee of the Role and 
Scope Committee commissioned by President 
Allen in January of 1970 decided "that the 
policy of 'in loco parentis' is outmoded 
in our society. It recommends that steps 
be taken to abolish those practices and regu- 
lations which have been fostered by this 
principle. . ." Despite President Allen's 
seeming disregard for his committee's recom- 
mendation, we students wholeheartedly endorse 
the committees' advice. Furthermore, the 
principle "in loco parentis" undermines a 
goal of the college as stated in Gentlemanly 
Speaking (latest edition, p. 15): 



Social rules and regulations at Centenary 
have as their object the development of 
students as moral, intelligent, responsible 
members of an academic community . . . 
(emphasis ours) . 

2. Although we favor unlimited visitation 
in accord with present dormitory "quiet hour" 
regulations, we demand an immediate return to 
the successful visitation program of last 
year: Women - 2 to 9 p.m., Sunday through 
Thursday, and 2 p.m. to 12:30 a.m., Friday 
through Saturday. Men - noon to midnight, 
Sunday through Thursday, and noon to 2 a.m., 
Friday through Saturday. 

Programs at least this sensible are in 
effect at other Methodist related colleges 
in the South (e.g., Emory, SMIT) . 

3. We believe the method of gathering 
data upon which the President based his 
decision is highly suspect. In the spring 
of this year President Allen sent a question- 
naire to certain parents of dorm students 
asking for their preference for which hours 
or no hours . 

a. It is a fact that not all parents 
of dorm students received the questionnaire 
of last spring. Therefore, not all parental 
opinion was represented. 

b. Neither the hours in effect at 
the time of the questionnaire nor the cur- 
rent hours were mentioned on said question- 
naire. 

c. It appears that a greater percen- 
tage of parents were opposed to visitation 
on the questionnaire than there were on the 
housing contracts. This is evidenced by 
the small number of students who are living 
in non-visitation areas. 

d. That the decision was reached 
in the summer denied a vast majority of 
students a voice in the decision-making 
process, contrary to the stated college aims 
(1971-1972 Catalogue, p. 2): 

Students at Centenary . . . enjoy a high 
degree of freedom and responsibility in 
self-government and in participation in 
the governance of the College . . . 

e. President Allen's summer commit- 
tee to study the school's visitation policies 
consisted of 3 students, 3 faculty members 
and 3 local parents. It is ludicrous that 
these 3 parent representatives were all 
opposed to visitation when the results of 
President Allen's questionnaire showed 
that not all parents were opposed to 
visitation. 

f. President Allen says: "We have 
available recreational facilities and lounges 
as well as study areas which are easily 
accessible without having to resort to our 
bedrooms for such uses." Where are they? 
Shall we go to the SUB with its high noise 
level from ping pong and pool tables, from 
the blaring TV, juke box and radio? Shall 
we go to the men's residence hall lobbies, 



only to find more noise from TV and washing 
machines, as well as people coming and 
going. In passing we may mention the 
uncomfortable furniture and lack of women's 
restroom facilities in the lobby. Shall 
we go to the women's residence hall lobbies? 
Here we again find noise from the general 
movement of people in and out of the dorm. 
Even these unsuitable areas become inacces- 
sible at 10:30 p.m. . 

g. Furthermore, we find a conflict 
between President Allen's concept of a 
dormitory room and the concept of a dormitory 
room as expressed in the official publication 
Gentlemanly Speaking. The President has said 
to our parents that our dorm rooms are merely 
'bedrooms"; however, Gentlemanly Speaking 
says The residence hall is more than a place 
to sleep. It should be the center of activi- 
ties for study, personal living, and group 
living. 

4, Perhaps more than anything else this 
decision runs contrary to the tradition of 
Centenary College. As an official Student 
Senate letter of 30 June 1972 said: in the 
past, Centenary students have een treated 
as responsible mature young adults, and 
they have responded similarly. To subject 
these students to more restrictive rules 
would be to deny the hard earned progress 
which has been made in recent years, and 
would be in essence declaring the students 
unable to cope with the responsibilities 
which have been granted them. 

5. More important than all of these, 
we hold the right of privacy.

Healing in the Testube 



Is there some physically measurable 
difference between people who have 
mysterious powers of healing and those 
who don't? 

Sister Justa Smith of Rosary Hill 
College, Buffalo, New York, presented 
an affirmative answer at a conference 
on psychic healing sponsored by the 
Association for Humanist Psychology in 
San Francisco recently. Sister Justa, 
a Franciscan nun who, as she says, has 
"kicked the habit," is first and fore- 
most a biochemist. (Ph.D., St. Thomas 
Institute for Advanced Studies, 
Cincinnati; post doctoral work, U.C. 
Berkeley.) She did her Ph.D. work on 
the effect of a strong magnetic field 
on the activity of trypsin, one of the 
enzymes produced by the pancreas to 
break down proteins. She took crystal- 
line "off the shelf" trypsin, put it 
in water in a test tube, and subjected 
it to a strong magnetic field. At 
fifteen-minute intervals over a period 
of two hours, she removed equal portions 
of the trypsin solution and tested its 
activity in breaking down a protein. She 
found that in the presence of a strong 
magnetic field the activity of the 
enzyme increased steadily. Without the 
magnetic field such activity was unchanged. 

Meanwhile, at McGill University, Dr. 
Bernard Grad had tested the effect of the 
healer, Oskar Estabany, on the growth 
of plants. Estabany held sealed flasks 
of salt water in his hands for a period 
of time, and barley seeds watered with 
this "treated" water had outgrown barlev 
seeds watered with ordinary salt water. 
Also, similar flasks of salt water held 
by depressed psychiatric patients 
retarded the growth of barley seeds. 

Grad introduced Estabany to Sister 
Justa, who decided to see if he had any 
effect on trypsin, since she was famil- 
iar with the effect of magnetism on 



trypsin and since healers and their 
patients sometimes talk about feeling 
magnetic forces. Sure enough, when 
Estabany held flasks of trypsin in his 
hands for about an hour and a half and 
equal portions of solution were removed 
every fifteen minutes, its activity was 
seen to increase along a curve similar 
to the activity curve produced by the 
effects of the strong magnetic field. 
However, when Smith tried to measure a 
magnetic field between Estabany 's hands, 
there was no measurable field. (Of 
course, there is in everyone a very 
small magnetic field associated with the 
very slight electric currents of the 
nerves, but she was trying to measure a 
much stronger magnetic field such as the 
one she had used to produce the activity 
curve in the trypsin.) 

Sister Justa went on to check other 
reputed healers ' effects on other enzymes 
She tested three healers with three 
enzymes. All three of the healers increased 
the activity of trypsin. However all 
three decreased the activity of NADP, 
nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide 
phosphate. (The nicotinamide part of this 
molecule is also called niacin, a B 
vitamin.) Smith was interested in this 
coenzyme because it figures largely in 
the energy cycles of the body: NADP is 
needed to release the energy stored in 
ATP (adenosine tri- phosphate.) She 
thought that the great energy flows that 
healers speak of might be correlated with 
an increase in NADP activity. 

She does not know what to make of the 
consistent decrease in NADP activity 
effected by the three healers. Physio- 
logists suggested to her that too much 
NADP activity would be disadvantageous 
and even dangerous. (It may be of some 
interest that in psychiatric circles, 
nicotinamide is thought of as a natural 
tranquilizer. It is widely used to 
treat schizophrenia and many bad LSD 
trips have been safely aborted by massive 
doses of about three grams of nicotina- 
mide. So a decrease in NADP activity 
may be correlated with an increase in 
psychic activity.) 

The third enzyme tested, amylase, 
breaks down starches. Smith took this 
enzyme from the healers' own blood, but 
in this case there were slight up-and- 
down effects, and she decided that the 
amylase was not sufficiently purified to 
give conclusive results. 

These tests were all done with double - 
blind controls -- that is, the activities 
of the enzymes were tested by technicians 
who didn't know which enzymes they were 
testing, nor did the technicians giving 
the healers the enzymes to hold know which

RESIDENCE HALL PURPOSE 

The purpose of the residence hall is to provide comfortable living accom- 
modations for students while in residence on the Centenary campus. The residence 
hall is more than a place to sleep. It should be the center of activities for study, 
personal living, and group living It is expected that each student will make every 
effort to cooperate at all times with his fellows in an effort to make conditions 
best for all. 
Taken from page 16, Gentlemanly Speaking 1972-73 



Centenary College takes the official position that no 
leed for opposite sex visitation has been established. 
Ve have available recreational facilities and lounges 
as well as study areas which are easily accessible 
without having to resort to our bedrooms for such 
jses. 

Taken from a letter to students and their parents 
from President Allen, dated June 22, 1972. 



enzymes were which. Each was coded in 
symbols until the experiment was over, in 
order to rule out subtle cueing or even 
telepathy as an explanation. 

Sister Justa also had Estabany try his 
healing activity on trypsin samples whose 
activity had been reduced considerably 
by exposure to ultraviolet light. 
Estabany was able to increase the activity 
of this damaged trypsin, and the curve 
of this increase was similar to the 
curves of the increase of ordinary 
trypsin, although in the time that this 
experiment went on, the level was not 
raised to quite the level of normal 
trypsin. Sister Justa thought that if 
the experiment were carried on longer 
it might reach this level, and this 
would be most interesting. Yes, it would.

Design for the Real World 



A long time ago I received 
an expensive pen and pencil set 
as a gift. What made them ex- 
pensive, apart from the slim 
"aerodynamic shape" which the 
accompanying brochure described 
at great length, was the pack- 
aging. The pen and pencil sat 
in a plastic cradle set into a 
velvet- like covering. This was 
encased in another plastic box 
covered with form fitting card- 
board and wrapped with paper and 
a ribbon. The set generally sells 
for $12.50. It wrote about as 
well as any 39<t ball point 
cartridge. 

I thought about that pen and 
pencil set from time to time. 
Why did they bother to style it 
with true aerodynamic design 
since wind resistance is never 
much of a problem to most writers? 
Why did they package it so it 
occupied nearly ten minutes to 
extract the actual pen and pencil 
from the packaging? 

I found the answer when I 
discovered Victor Papanek. 
A UNESCO International Design 
Expert, he is the author of a 
remarkable book entitled Design 
For The Real World. Papanek ex- 
plodes the American design myth 
of an ideal consumer who is a 
white, middle income male, age 18 
to 25, exactly 6 feet tall weigh- 
ing 185 pounds, and in the process 
of ignoring the Third World, poor 
people, women, the aged, the sick, 
the handicapped, the orientals and 
the blacks and all the other groups 
excluded by this restrictive cove- 
nant. In the process, Papanek, 
example, has exploded the myth that 
we must consume vast quantities of 
materials and energy if we are to 
produce goods to meet society '•s 
needs. 



He has, for instance, designed 
a radio which can be manufactured 
on a cottage industry basis for 
9 cents. It is made of a used 
juice can, and uses paraffin wax 
and a wick as a power source. 
The rising heat is converted into 
energy sufficient to power this 
non-selective receiver. Once the 
wax is gone, it can be replaced 
by more wax, paper, dried cow dung 
or anything else that bums. 
While the radio is non-selective 
(you can only receive one station) , 
the implications for education in 
developing Third World countries 
are incredible. Papanek has also 
designed a television set that can 
be Droduced for about 8 dollars 
and a modular cooling unit for 
perishable foods which can be built 
for 6 dollars. 

But the true point of Papanek 's 
book is not how to produce cheaper 
gadgetry. It is the fact that he 
is doing for design -- the organi- 
zation of events into a conceptual 
pattern -- what McLuhan did for 
communications in Understanding 
Media. Papanek's designs, which 
are both logical in terms of human 
ecology and feasible in terms of 
social conditions, show the prev- 
alent American designer's ethic 
of "If it sells, great!" to be the 
exploitative shuck it really is. 
There is, for example, no 
earthly reason why a hearing 
aid should sell for hundreds 
of dollars while a transistor 
radio can be had for S3. 98. 
The only suggestable reason 
is that medical products , a 
necessity, can be sold at a 
very high price, since the 
buyer would otherwise be 
incapacitated without one. 
This seems akin to stealing 
pennies out of a blind man's 



» 



cup -- only on an aggregate 
scale amounting to millions 
of dollars by product-orien- 
ted corporate Americans . 

There are hundreds of 
books dealing with some form 
of ecology, environment, and 
the human condition on the 
bookshelves. I've read or 
at least glanced at most of 
them. This one is the only 
book I could truly suggest 
everyone would benefit from 
reading . 

Keep those cards and 
letters coming dept: I'd 
like to collect your eco-tac- 
tics or ecotage adventures , 
so I can publish the best in 
a future column. You also 
might let me in on what's 
happening where you live -- 
what battles are being fought, 
and who seems to be winning. 
Send your mail to Roger Lubin/ 
P.O. Box 16402 /San Francisco, 
Calif. 94116. I'll try to 
answer each letter that I get 
and we can turn this column 
into a two way communication.

' 



by Taylor Caffery 



Editor's Note: Dr. John H. Allen, 49 year 
old President of Centenary College, earned 
his Ph.D. at Perm State, Southeastern 
Louisiana, and Southern Mississippi. The 
following conversation was held in his office 
during the summer, before the current cam- 
paign of campus opposition to the dorm 
visitation policy had surfaced. 



CONGLOMERATE: Dr. Allen, tuition is up. 
Enrollment, we're told, is headed down. 
Many of the students and alumni are 
noticeably grouchy. As the Shreveport 
Times has asked, what is going on at 
Centenary College? 

ALLEN: Tuition is up at Centenary, SMU, 
Tulane, Millsaps, Hendrix, almost univer- 
sally at independent private colleges and 
universities around the country. What 
tuition is charged by public or state 
supported institutions is up also. This 
reflects economics of the country more 
than it does something peculiar to 
Centenary. We raised our tuition very 
reluctantly. There's always a question 
in my mind as to whether you improve 
yourself economically by raising tuition 
or whether you are fighting a holding 
action; and so the administration, the 
Board of Trustees , and our financial 
advisors, all got together to try to 
decide what was best to do about it. 

CONGLOMERATE: Was this primarily a board 



decision? You told us point-blank at 
the end of last semester that tuition 
would not go up, that it would stay 
where it was . 

ALLEN: It's always a board decision, but 
the board makes this decision on the 
information provided it by me and by 
the administration of the college. So 
it isn't a question of having me say 
that I am not responsible for it, that 
the board did it to us, that the 
devil made me do it. What actually hap- 
pened was that after saving that we would 
not raise tuition, the board asked for a 
review of our financial situation, we 
gave them a review, and the review from 
their point of view clearly indicated 
that we should increase tuition. At 
that point I found myself really being 
more sentimental about not wanting to 
raise tuition rather than pragmatic or 
practical , and therefore I agreed that 
the board was right, and I'm just sorry 
that we had to do it. 

CONGLOMERATE: Now, granted prices are up 
everywhere. This raise in tuition can 
easily be viewed as a general college 
raise in tuition everywhere, and it's 
been covered in the press. Is there a 
general decline in college enrollment 
that can also be held responsible for our 
decline, or are we affected more by LSU 
Shreveport, by gripes about the high cost 
of Centenary, things like that? 

ALLEN: The population base of college-age 
people is declining in the country, so the 
universe from which you can draw students 
is not as large as it once was. Okay, 
that's a basic problem for all of us' in 
higher education. However, I think you'll 
find this fall that there will be a number 
of institutions which will increase in 



enrollment. They likely will be state 
colleges and universities in various parts 
of the country. Also, at the same time, 
I think there will be a general stabiliza- 
tion or reduction in enrollments in pri- 
vate and church- related colleges. There 
are going to be a number of state - 
supported institutions that don't increase 
this year also. Now, what I'm saying is 
going to apply in Louisiana as well as 
other states. Centenary is in a very deli- 
cate situation in terms of enrollment in 
that it has never really operated from 
much beyond a regional basis for attracting 
students , even though we have students here 
from thirty or thirty-five states. 
CONGLOMERATE: What heights of enrollment have 

we reached? 
ALLEN: This college, following the Korean 
War and into the early sixties, had enrol- 
lment increases which are exaggerated sta- 
tistically because they include classes 
taught at Barksdale. If you look at the 
enrollments at Centenary that include only 
fulltime residential type students you'll 
find that it has been fairly stable for 
twenty-five years, more or less what it 
is today. 
CONGLOMERATE: Next semester we'll probably 

have one of the dorms closed. 
ALLEN: Right. 

CONGLOMERATE: Probably. So can we assune 
that enrollment is lower this coming 
semester than it has been in recent 
history? 
ALLEN: It's going to be lower this year 
than say 196S or 64, I forget which vear 
it was . . . but one year in the mid 
sixties you filled . . . 
CONGLOMERATE: The year all the "yankees" 

came. 
ALLEN: That's what they tell me. You filled 
the dorm for one, maybe two years. Before

ENROLLMENT PROBLEMS.. 



and since they have not. Also, you know 
that there has been a change in attitude 
toward what dormitories are for on college 
campuses. There's been a continuing 
pressure . . . 
CONGLOMERATE: Aren't dormitories really just 

for sex and drinking? 
ALLEN: Must be (laughter). There's much more 
interest among students and I think also 
parents today in living conditions off- 
campus. Now, I'm a sentimentalist in this 
regard. I still believe that the dormitory 
is part of the total college education, 
even if it's "sex and drinking." 
CONGLOMERATE: Well, I think that a campus 
community is important, especially at a 
college like Centenary. That's what we 
have that LSU-S doesn't. 
ALLEN: Right. It may be, and right here 111 
speculate that if we somehow had a campus 
in which it became a kind of privilege in 
which to live in the dormitory we might 
find a healthier attitude toward the whole 
thing. I have an idea we might even fill 
the dorms, because, being human in every- 
thing we do, to be told you must live in 
the dormitory immediately sets up negative 
responses resulting in "I'll figure out 
ways to beat that." On the other hand, 
required living in dormitories has not 
always been true on most campuses. I don't 
know about Centenary, but in the dim, dark 
past of my own undergraduate days, I recall 
going to a college where I was told if 
rooms were available I might apply for a 
dormitory room, and I fought like cr 
to get in the dormitory. Why? It was 
cheaper . . . 

It's not cheaper . . . 
And I understand it's not cheaper here 
... it was convenient, that's where mv

ast two or three yen 
We have a new head of the Admissions 

irtment -- a lot of people were plainly 
ipny with the old head of the recruiting 
department -- do you expect to see gains in 
the next year or so with the two new ex- 
students who've been added to the recruit- 
ing rolls and the new head? 



ALLEN: I'm very excited about our new turn in 
recruiting and admissions. I think that 
the people in that office today are flexi- 
ble, imaginative ... I think they com- 
municate with the people that we want to 
talk with, and, even as important as that 
is , that they communicate with us here in 
the family of the college. I'm extremely 
optimistic. At the same time I don't 
want to put the burden on them, to believe 
that somehow, magically, we're going to 
uncover a great motherlode of students 
out there who 're just itching to come 
to Centenary. It's going to be a tough, 
hard job to get the message of what is 
Centenary and what does it mean and why 
is it important for you to attend this 
college. That's going to be real tough 
work. 
CONGLOMERATE: Support for this college 

comes from the students and their parents, 
from the alumni, from the Shreveport area, 
and from churches. How has this support 
changed over the last few years? Has 
there been a noticeable lowering of sup- 
port from any of these groups because they 
don't like directions Centenary is taking, 
they think it's too expensive already, 
they've already given enough money? 
ALLEN: No, as a matter of fact the income 
from gifts -- gifts could come from alums, 
from foundations, or from the Shreveport 
area -- that income for the college has 
not changed, and that's the problem. It 
has not changed very much, it has not 
diminished, but at the same time we've 

' increased costs. So, if we're 
receiving the same amount of money from 
out friends and support, rs as we were 
five years ago or ten years 
losing g iDund. And that 
case than a loss of donors, 
a matter of fact, donors are the 
le who can complain. You know, they

anythi you can say about the hiring 

• at went i Dr. Will Andress 

sidered? Was there a mistake made? 



And, has this little brouhaha hurt us in 
terms of support, maybe from people at 
First Methodist where Dr. Andress is 
choir director? 
ALLEN: First, I think there was one major 
error made in the process of accepting 
Mr. Voran 's retirement and then replacing 
him, and the responsibility for that 
error is with me, and that is, we took 
too long between his announced retirement 
and the announcement of his replacement. 
There was a kind of vacuum in which it 
gave everybody an opportunity to speculate, 
to advise, to wonder, to worry, and the 
system for which I'm responsible was 
responsible for that long delay. Now what 
was it? We went through our normal process 
of finding out who would be interested in 
the position, who were real applicants, 
who were qualified applicants, and then 
interviewing, checking out recommendations, 
and all the red tape you go through to 
employ a person to work at Centenary 
College. 

Part of this took place in the summer 
months, which further delayed us because 
we would go week to week trying to get 
together a committee or trying to get a 
response from somebody somewhere who was; 
going to write a letter of recommendation. 
All of this is my responsibility, and in 
retrospect I say to myself I should have 
operated more quickly and more decisively 
to resolve that, knowing full well that 
the question of Cheesy and his replacement 
was an emotional thing with a number of 
people, it was not just a routine replace- 
ment of an assistant professor of sociology. 

Yes, Dr. Will Andress was one of the 
oersons who was interested in the job, he 
was one of the persons who iewed, 

and certainly his credential I'ood.

a congregation would have a lasting upset 
over something that Centenary College did, 
trying to run its affairs as the church 
would try to run its affairs. I have 
talked to some people there whose opinions 
I thought would be valid, and I feel that 
though, yes, there are some friends of 
Centenary and friends of First Methodist 
Church who are disapDointed or maybe even 
slightly irritated or angered by this, that 
there's no permanent damage. There can't 
be permanent damage between the two. We're 
too involved in each other's lives. And of 
course I think First Methodist Church is 
extremely fortunate to have Will as a full- 
time music director. There have been no 
indications at all, even hinted indications 
to me, that anybody from First Methodist 
was going to stop supporting Centenary over 
this, but I'm prepared to receive my lec- 
tures from those who would tell me that I 
make lousy decisions. 

CONGLOMERATE: Over the summer there was the 
choir director selection. Just before the 
summer, started the increase in tuition rates 
was announced. Also over the summer a 
change in dormitory hours was announced, or 
I might say pronounced . A number of stu- 
dents have complained that consultation 
with students about all matters concerning 
the college is not as full as it might be, 

My own opinion is that students in a 
college are at least to be considered 
stockholders in a college ■■- maybe common 
stockholders, but stockholders all the 
same. They do pay money, or their parents 
pay money on the students' word, I think 
that board meeting minutes should be 
released to the students , that a financial 
statement of the college should be released 
to the students, and all stockholders in 
the institution. A regular company doesn't 
confer with the stockholders every time it 
takes any little action, but it does release 
a general report on how the company is doing. 
I think that at the least a college can do 
the same thing with its major interests. 
The other things -- whether it wants stu- 
dents to help decide in the selection of a 
new Director of Whatever -- should be up to 
the philosophy of the college. Some colleges 
do, some don't. 

ALLEN: At this point we're dealing in a matter 
of degree or amount of sharing rather than 
the principle, because I also feel that 
there has to be a realistic sharing of infor- 
mation and decision making thoughts between 
the stockholders of the college and all the 
constituents. So at that point, philosophi- 
cally at least, we don't disagree -- we may 
not disagree on anything. I think where 
most of the problem comes in is the amount 
and when and what. 

First of all , remember the Board of 
Trustees are the so-called owners of the 
college, and so as an administrator my 
first obligation is to report to them the 
business of the college, and then report 
to the faculty, the students, and when 
whatever constituents we might have* for 
instance the church -- whatever interest 
it has -- the community, and so forth. Our 
financial situation, c course, is "public," 



in the same sense, as any corporate 
financial status is . We give the board 
a published audit each year done by an 
independent auditing firm, as would 
Standard Oil. We. also have to submit to 
the board each year a proposed budget which 
they approve, disapprove, modify, or change ■ 
in any way they wish. 

Now these things theoretically are 
available to everyone. In fact, we know 
that most people never see them because, 
as public as they are officially, 
unofficially most people tend not to want 
to share details of their financial opera- 
tions because they tell what professor 
X's salary is, how much travel expenses 
the English Department may have, and so 
on; and these are kinds of things that, 
though public, are not considered 
something that everybody should talk 
about at every tea party. 

CONGLOMERATE: A lot of this could be partially 
the CONGLOMERATE'S fault, because we 
haven't gone out of our way to get any kind 
of financial statements into the CONGLOM- 
ERATE, which we may very well start trying 
to do. 

ALLEN: Right. And one place is the audit 
report of the outside auditors, which 
is a condensation in several pages of 
what the college does with its money. 
It really is more revealing in whether 
or not we are good stewards of the money 
that's been given us than anything else, 
because here the guys are checking for 
our legal positions. 

That was about money. But things like 
decisions were made upon dormitory hours. 
Though we didn't have a town hall meeting 
or a forum, we have had a series of forum 
like encounters in this for the past 
several years , and in the end really what 
happens is that the buck finally ends up 
on the desk of the president and he has to 
make a decision based on all the responses 
from all of the people who are interested. 

CONGLOMERATE: The letter that went out said 
that the people who finally made the 
decision -- who I think were the president 
and the Board of Trustees -- found that 
there was no reason or no rationalization 
for having dorm visitation, and that in 
spite of this there still would be some 
dorm visitation. Now, I wondered when 1 
read it, if there is no reason -- and it 
said quite that, no reason -- for dorm 
visitation, why dTcT they allow any? 

ALLEN: The great compromise. The expressed 
reasons for having visitation, all the way 
from unlimited to various limited forms, 
usually covered ideas like, "It's easier 
to study," or 'Wy friends and I can study 
together," or, "There's no place to go 
for social encounters for visiting or 
simply being in a small social situation," 
or, "It's my home, why can't I invite 
someone to drop by or come in" -- I think, 
generally, I have covered it. 

The college's response*is, as we put 
in the letter, that there are study areas 
available outside, though one's room should 
be one's own study place too, I suppose. 



But it's not like a home in the sense that 
it really is a bedroom, as a bedroom isn't 
a home. The lounge or the lobby of the 
dormitory is the living room. There are 
kitchens . 
CONGLOMERATE: It's also Grand Central Station. 
ALLEN: Grand Central Station, right, because 
the family is so large. And in reviewing 
it, in recognizing and agreeing that pro- ■ 
visions were made deliberately -- archi- 
tecturally -- for all of these functions 
in the dormitories, libraries, and other 
buildings, then the statement was made, 
properly, that other provisions have been 
made for these activities. At the same 
time, you have to be realistic and say 
there may be times when somebody simply 
wants to have visitors in that private 
room which is called the bedroom or one's 
own room. So we compromised in such a 
way that one member of the faculty or 
administration told me, "Now you have a 
solution which will make everybody, on 
both sides of the question, equally 
unhappy." 
CONGLOMERATE: (Laughter) Is it true that 
Rotary Hall will be closed because there 
aren't enough people to be in it? 
ALLEN: Partially. 

CONGLOMERATE: If opening it partially is 
a possible solution but maybe an expensive 
solution, might it not be cheaper, if the • 
girls ' population is down as much as the 
boys' population, to take one of the dorms, 
say Sexton or Hardin, and make the bottom 
floor a girls' floor, the top floor a boys' 
floor, or the other way around, and put 
the people who don't want to be in the 
bigger dorms into a dorm of both male and 
female population? 
ALLEN: All of these possibilities have been 

discussed . . . 
CONGLOMERATE: Would it be cheaper to do 

that? 
ALLEN: It might. Now, at this point, as of 
today (and it may not be true in the spring, 
or it may not be true next fall) , but as 
of now, frankly, what we've worked out we 
think is the most economic. We're looking 
at the gas bill, the electric bill, the 
water bills. But it certainly is not 
beyond the realm of possibility, and 
certainly we have considered, purely from 
an economic point of view, the prospect of 
having different floors for the different 
sexes to accomodate a real economic need 
in housing. We'll never stop reviewing 
this. 
CONGLOMERATE: A few short questions. Miss 
A's gone. Is the Forensic Tournament also 
gone? 

ALLEN: As of now, it's up in the air. With 
her gone, it is not to be, unless we find 
anongst the people who are left, and the 
new person who comes in to replace her, 
the interest. I think the interest is 
there , but I 'm not putting pressure on 
anybody, because this is a big voluntary 
thing that she did, except that I have 
continued to express interest in it. 
I did pressure her a little bit, I think, 
the last time she did it. I think it's

...THIEVERY, UNCUT GRASS 




an excellent activity on the campus . I 'm 
sitting still waiting for September and 
that faculty and that department to get 
together and to lay out what they can do 
in the coming year, and I hope that they 
will be able to work on a Forensic 
Tournament, if only a small one. 

CONGLOMERATE: There are a few other people 
gone. Mr. Arrington's gone, replaced 
by Mr. Stevens. Mrs. Russell has left, 
retired, replaced by Dr. Lowery of the 
Chemistry Department, and also the former 
head of the Admissions Department, Mr. 
Schultz is gone, replaced by Warren 
Levingston. Quite a turnover from the 
last semester. I've heard that Bob Holla- 
day has officially said that he's going 
to retire or go into another business. 
Is that true? 

ALLEN: This is true. As of yesterday, Mr. 
Holladay submitted his resignation. He's 
going back into the insurance business, 
and for the time being we are going to 
absorb the duties of that office into the 
general Development Office activities 
because we have a very active alumnus in 
Mr. Watson, and we will probably after 
careful thinking and checking, partic- 
ularly with the alumni, replace 
Mr. Holladay. 

CONGLOMERATE: Is it true that Dr. Will 
Andress has been offered the position? 

ALLEN: (Laughter) I haven't heard about 
it. 

CONGLOMERATE: Another matter is campus 
insurance policies. When students come 
to Centenary, they're given a small amount 
of insurance to cover accidents, things 
like that, but they've never been given 
an actual policy. Is there any chance 
that we will eventually be given actual 
policies, or something from the company 
other than a folder? 

ALLEN: i don't know. That's news. I would 
say that what we need to do is talk to the 
comptroller about that. That's right, I 
know now what you're talking about, just 
that little two-fold brochure. I don't 
know. There should be, though. They 
should have some kind of a policy type 
document that they could issue. You got 
me. 

'ver the summer there's been 
Lot of thievery on campus. A TV stolen 
ne o f the dorms , James Dorm was 
as we say, curtains ripped down, 
thrown. Linen stolen out of Hardin 
eve. The CONGLOMF RATE'S 
stolen. Coke machines have 
been broken into right and left. Have we 
hired the FBI r anybody to come in 

and find out what is going on at Centenary 
ege? 
>ne of my observations is that we're 
• have not been seen: 
conscious to a rigourous enough level . 

re a very public location in Shreveport. 

CONGLOMERATE: I haven't read any of this, by 
th- the Shreveport Times ' 

"Burglaries" in tne "Records of the Day". 
Has any of this been reported to the 
police? 



ALLEN: Yes, but I don't know how these things 
get in the paper. I don't know what gets 
on the blotter at the police station, but 
not all of them have. Some of them have 
not been reported. We have not secured 
our buildings satisfactorily. I think 
it's extremely easy to get into buildings 
around here. I think that internally 
we've got to do a better security job, not 
just lean on the Shreveport police to 
clean up after we lose something. We lose 
things like window air conditioners out 
of buildings, which sounds to me like one 
of the most ridiculous things in the 
world, that someone could walk up and 
unbolt a window air conditioner. 
CONGLOMERATE : Announcements? 
ALLEN: We're going to have to start this 
year planning for the Sesqui centennial 
year of 197S. We'll have a faculty- 
student-trustee committee, we'll have 
community people. We hope to make 197S 
a real big, all year operation. To do that, 
we've got to start now, and so this fall 
we will appoint committees. It will be 
expensive also, so we'll have to find 
some support . 

Also, the Board of Trustees is going 
to have a committee organized this fall 
called the Committee on the Future Role 
of the College, a rather pontifical sound- 
ing thing, but actually very important 
in that they want us and them to agree on 
what we expect Centenary to be and become 
and remain in the next decade, and this 
relates to the money, enrollment, program, 
the whole thing. Though it won't be from 
week-to-week a very exciting thing, over 
the long haul this will be one of the most 
important things we've done in a long time. 
CONGLOMERATE: The grounds. A teacher I had 
last semester, here just for the summer, 
said that, when he came on campus, the 
first thing he noticed was that the 
grounds aren't being kept up as well as 
they should. He thinks that you can tell 
a college's financial status by how well 
it's keeping up the grounds. Is there 
any chance we could fool people? Toward 
the end of last spring there was a Pomera- 
nian Society Day, or some sort thing, 
where a lot of teachers went out and 
"picked cotton." Do you look forward to 
some sort of community effort? 
ALLEN: I think the survivors of that day 
will probabiy continue their efforts. 
There has been this summer a program of 
planned negligence on the campus. 
•JMERATE: That wasn't "benign?" 
ALLEN: And the thing about it was, we had 
limited manpower. We were going to get 
into the dormitories, and do this super 
cleaning and painting. We committed 
all of our personnel to that, and hence 
we said, okay, the grounds are going to 
suffer, we- are making them suffer while 
we go into the buildings. Now then, in 
the last couple of weeks, we've come 
back to the grounds. The result of such 
a thing, of course, is that that benign 
negligence will have permanent residuals. 
Some things won't look good because we 



should have been taking care of them, but 
it was calculated, and it was economic. 

Right, you can tell a college's finan- 
cial problems by the looks of its grounds, 
but we're going to go back now with 
renewed effort and work on the grounds, 
because in the first place, most of us 
around here are rather grounds -conscious 
anyway. We like Centenary because it has 
a nice campus, we like the natural look 
it has, and so we'll work to keep it. I 
get upset because plants die from lack 
of water, I complain to Mr. Raney, 
and his response is predictable, that 
he just can't have a man going around the 
campus all the time watering all the 
plants. I've got to get him to do some- 
thing else. When he says, 'Yes, for a 
thousand we can do so and so," then he 
puts me in my place. 
CONGLOMERATE: One final thing on the choir. 
Will the choir keep the same costumes, 
will they keep the same attitudes, will 
there be a new choir with a new director? 
ALLEN: They'll keep the same costumes, 
they'll have the same look. When I 
interviewed the men who were being 
considered for the position, one of 
the points that I was so emphatic 
about was that we must maintain the 
look, the visibility, of the Centenary 
College Choir. They all understood 
it, and Dr. Ballard understands it and 
endorses it. So that will remain. 
CONGLOMERATE: And I understand that Dr. 
Voran is going to continue to be hired 
by Centenary on a part-time basis as 
a choir advisor. He'll keep his old 
office and raise money? 
ALLEN: He indicates that he probably will 
not stay in that office, but that would 
be for him to decide, if he wants to. 
And yes, his title is Advisor on Choral 
Music, or some other word like that, 
and he's a part-time employee. Of course, 
actually what he will be doing is devel- 
opment -- helping to get support for the 
choir. 

There's a second half to your question. 
Pr. Ballard will be doing whatever kinds 
of things are peculiar and particular to 
him, and so you will see some new tilings 
or hear some new music or have some new 
experiences as a result of his being the 
director. 
CONGLOMERATE: What about the cafeteria? 

it stay with Catering Management? 
ALLEN: Catering Management won the contract 
over one other hard bidder and two other 
interested ones. We're putting in a sound 
system in the cafeteria, which I hope will 
soothe us . 
CONGLOMERATE: With Grand Funk Railroad? 
ALLEN: (Laughter) Right. And there's going 
to be a new salad bar in the dining room 
rather than the line, which we hope will 
speed up your ability to go through. We 
had tried to work out a system to move 
the beverage area out, because that's 
a real bottleneck, but were not able, at 
least this year, to get a beverage 
dispensing setup away from the food line.

IT WOW 



College Voter Registration 



*76e Pocue* and *?W ta tfet *)t 



A student attending college in 
New Jersey can walk up to his lo- 
cal election administrator, state 
his name and his desire to regis- 
ter in his college town, and be- 
come a registered voter. 

This action doesn't appear 
extraordinary, but more than one 
and a half million college stud- 
ents , including those at Centen- 
ary, still lack the option of 
registering from their campus 
addresses. And, despite favor- 
able court decisions and attor- 
ney-general opinions in more 
than forty States in the past 
year, some of the students in 
these States must submit to ar- 
bitrary questioning from local 
election officials. The result 
may be the loss of their vote in 
that particular college town. 

According to the National 
Movement for the Student Vote, 
only New Jersey, because of a 
State Supreme Court decision 
handed down on July 14, 1972, 
specifically includes all stud- 
ents as potential registrants in 
their college communities and 
virtually eliminates all op- 
portunities for administrative 
abuse by local election officials. 
The New Jersey decision is the most 
far-reaching yet rendered con-' 
cerning the right of students to 
campus registration. 

In Shreveport, Caddo Parish 
Registrar U. Charles Mitchell told 
the CONGLOMERATE Tuesday that 
Louisiana laws do not permit New 
Jersey style registration. This 
means that , because there are no 
on-campus registration programs, 
unregistered students should 

ck iirmediately with the 

dieck on their eligibility lor 
joining the local voter r 



Miichell said that "conflicts of 
opinions on the laws" have pre- 
vented on-campus registration 

drives , or any other drives away 
from the downtown office. 

Registration rolls are closed 
for the September 30 Second Pri - 
mary election, but students have 
until October 7 to register for the 
November General Election. Two 
important November races will be 
those for President, between Nixon 
and McGovern, and for U.S. Senator, 
with Democrat Bennett Johnston, 
independent John McKeithen, and 
Republican Ben C. Toledano. 

Marshall Lichtenstein, Student 
Vote General Counsel, and an at- 
torney for the pi ant if fs in the 
New Jersey case, believes the 
New Jersey decision to be a land- 
mark indicating a trend towards 
abolishing old-fashioned and rigid 
domicile requirements. Questions 
posed by election officials, such 
as "Where do you plan to be 
buried?" or "Where do you attend 
church?" which still can be asked 
even in states where "students 
are treated equally" are no longer 
at the discretion of election of- 
ficials in New Jersey. 

"Election administrators in 
New Jersey cannot interrogate 
applicants for registration as 
long as the applicant actually 
physically resides in that locale," 

- Lichtenstein. "But in other 
states, the threat of arbitrary 
interrogation hangs over all ap- 
plicants. The New Jersey court 
has taken a major step by recog- 
nizing that the individual, not 
the government , is best suited to 
decide where his voting interests 
lie." 

The New Jersey decision names 
I includes all students as being 
eligible to vote in their college 



communities. It specifically 
includes those who plan to return 
to their previous addresses , those 
who plan to remain permanently in 
their college communities, those 
who plan to obtain employment away 
from their previous residences, and 
those who are uncertain as to their 
future plans. 

The Student Vote Organization's 
legal department is also supporting 
litigation concerning student resi- 
dency, durational residency, purg- 
ing, mobile registration and 
voting. 

Once registered, though, a stu- 
dent still must take the care to 
vote if his political weight is to 
be felt. In Caddo Parish, 
Registrar Mitchell reports that 
only thirty percent of the regis- 
tered 102,000 citizens in the" 
district bothered to vote. 

In a statement lending support 
to non-partisan voter registration 
efforts, President Nixon has 
declared the month of September 
'Voter Registration Month." Stu- 
dents wishing to organize voter 
registration attempts in Shreveport 
can contact the non-partisan Stu- 
dent Vote group at 43 Ivy Street, 
S.E. , Washington, D.C. 

Ridley M. Whitaker, Executive 
Director of the Student Vote, 
praised President Nixon for his 
efforts. "As Mr. Nixon stated," 
said Whitaker, "voter registration 
is a non-partisan endeavor which 
must be broadened so that all 
citizens, particularly the nei 
eligible voters can take part in 
the electoral process." 

Whi taker was hopeful that the 
President would join other poli- 
tical leaders in a non-partisan 
effort to persuade local election 
officials to use their discretion 
towards the most effective and 
complete means of voter registra- 
tion."

THE CONGLOMERATE 



Mason Proff it 
HereTonight 

A probable record for cliches 
uttered by an adolescent fe- 
male in bellbottoms during a 
one-dag rock festival was set 
Sundag in Grant Park as Brenda 
Davis, 15 of Rogers Park, ex- 
claimed "Far out'." 19 times 
during the performance of a 
band called Mason Prof fit. 
— CHICAGO SUN-TIMES 
Monday, June 29, 1970 

Since August of 1969 Mason Prof fit has 
gone its own way in the music world. Grasp- 
ing firmly the roots of country and folk, 
they've filtered them through rock. Some- 
how, it seems, the music strikes a vibra- 
tory chord within the listener, and both 
he and the music move in tune. 

Centenary students and Shreveporters 
alike will have the chance to see this 
group Friday night, when Mason Prof fit 
appears in the Golden Dome. 

At 7:45, Axis, a local band, appears. 
After they've entertained the audience 
with their own unique sounds, they will 
turn over the Dome to Ilason Prof fit at 
8:30. 

Centenary students need only their 
ID's, and townspeople need pay only $3 
to hear this unusual admixture of sound. 

So unusual is Mason Prof fit, indeed, 
that they will not divulge their indivi- 
dual names. Whether this is due to strong 
group loyalty or fear of a deluge of kinky 
fan mail, only they know. 

ELECTION LOOMS 

Freshman will have a chance to elect 
their representatives in the Student 
Senate October 9th, when three frosh will 
be chosen from among the candidates to 
join nine other Senators in serving the 
student body. 

In order to qualify as a candidate, 
a freshman must obtain fifty signatures 
of fellowclassmen on a petition, have an 
average of 2.0 --- certified by the 
Registrar ---and tum this information 
into the Senate elections commitee by 
4:30 pm, September 29th. 

Balloting will be conducted from 3 
in the morning till 4 in the afternoon 
in the SUB. 

For freshmen interested in either 
changing or maintaining campus condi- 
tions , this is the most fundamental of 
all opporutnities. 

Art Film Series 

A series of art films is scheduled to 
appear at Centenary this fall. For the 
most iiart, they will be shown on Wednesday 
nights at 8 in the SUB. Features include 
Oedipus the King , a complex drama, ana 
Phaedra , a foreign film. Details will 
be released prior to each film. 

The art film series last year was a 
large success. Heavy numbers of Cente- 
nary students crowded the SUB along with 
tonwspeople for the showings, nd this 
term's series should draw a similiar res- 
ponse .

William McNamara and wife, Milancy. 

McNamara Exhibit 

An exhibit of watercolors , drawings , 
and oils by William P. McNamara will 
open Sunday, September 10, in the 
Library Foyer at Centenary College on 
Woodlawn Ave. The exhibit will remain 
on display through September 21. 

McNamara is a 1969 graduate of 
Centenary where he studied art under 
Willard Cooper, and received his master's 
degree from New Mexico Highlands Univ- 
ersity in Las Vegas, New Mexico, in 
August of this past year. Many of the 
works in the exhibit were done while at 
New Mexico Highlands in partial ful- 
fillment of the requirements for his 
master's degree. 

Between the time of his graduation 
from Centenary and beginning work towards 
his master's degree, he served for two 
years as instructor in art at Centenary. 
He has exhibited in several local and 
regional shows and was the winner of the 
Ridgewood Montosorri School Award for 
Graphics in the Shreveport Art Show in 
1967. While at Centenary, he painted 
a portrait of the late Dr. John B. 
Entriken, head of the Centenary Chemis- 
try Department and presented the painting 
to the school in May of 1967. He also 
represented Centenary in the South East 
College Art Conference in South Carolina 
in 1968. 

In addition to his achievements in 
art while at Centenary, he was a member 
of the national honorary fraternity, 
Omicron Delta Kappa, and was lis ted' in 
Who's Who in American Colleges and 
Universities. His name appeared on 
the Dean's List and he served as presi- 
dent of the Centenary chapter of Kappa Pi 
a national art fraternity. 

McNamara has just recently returned 
from New Mexico, where he was working on 
his master's degree, and is planning to 
leave at the end of this month for a 
one year sojourn in Spain. 

Ending the Draft 

The Defense Department says that only 
those draft registrants of eligible age and 
category with Random Selection Numbers of 
95 or below will be called into military duty 
by the end of this year. Those whose RSN is 
above 95 will likely not be called. Accord- 
ing to Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird, 
about 15,900 men will be conscripted be-' 
tween October and New Year, for a 1972 total 
of about SO ,000. 

It is possible, Laird said, that the 
-Nixon Administration will have achieved 
a "zero-draft" situation by the end of the 
year, six months before the "legal" authority 
to conscript ends. To achieve this and 
maintain it, both Laird and President Nixon

in the form of pay and bonuses to the armed

Big Blast Postponed 



All-Campus Weekend, originally set for 
Septanber 8-9, has been rescheduled for 
September 22-23. However, the Mason Prof fit 
rock group will still be appearing in concert 
tonight. 

Due to the illness of Senate President 
Rick Clark it was impossible to make all of 
the necessary arrangements for the weekend. 
Rather than "throwing the program together" 
Clark decided to move the festivities to a 
later date. Clark will be in charge of 
overseeing the arrangements. 

At Tuesday's Senate meeting Clark pro- 
posed a tentative itinerary for the future 
All-Campus weekend. In addition to the tra- 
ditional beer and bicycle race, he also sug- 
gested renting a roller rink on Friday night 
and having a banana eating contest and tug- 
of-war on Saturday. The festivities will be 
concluded with the showing of the film "The 
Illustrated Man" on Saturday night.

'GO GREEK' AGAIN 

by Mary Herrington 

Fall Formal Rush 1972 went well for both 
rushees and rushers, male and female. On 
the whole, operations went smoothly and 
the Greek spirit filled the air. Panhellenic 
Rush opened with a Panhellenic Double-Dip at 
the SUB on Saturday, August 26. All freshmen 
and transfer women were required to go and at 
least to be subjected to the temptation of 
ice cream. The actual formal rush began 
Wednesday, August 30, and lasted until Sunday, 
September 3, following the standard schedule 
of open houses, theme parties, preference 
parties, and pledgings. A total 
of forty women were entertained at the open 
houses but the number decreased to thirty- 
four by the time of preference parties. Of 
these women, twenty- four were pledged. 
Comments about the sorority rush were generally 
favorable. Even the usual fault of being 
asked the same old questions was not reiterated 
as often as usual. The meeting of new people 
was the most frequently given compliment, and 
the parties, including their length, were 
approved by the rushees. The Panhellenic 
rules which have been a major complaint were 
tapered down this year. The rushees were 
simply asked not to discuss Greek matters 
with anyone including males (a giant step 
away from strict silence) and the rushers 
were told to shy away from lengthy conversa- 
tions with rushees. 

A dinner at Don's Seafood and Steak House 
sponsored by the Inter-Fraternity Council was 
given on Saturday, August 26, to start the 
IFC Formal Rush. Beginning on the same day 
as Panhellenic Formal Rush and lasting the 
same length of time, the fraternities had 
their smokers, preference parties, and 
pledgings. Out of the fiftv-nine men that 
signed up for formal rush, only twenty-six 
were pledged. Apparently Open Rush looked 
more inviting to the majority of the male 
rushees. Those who did pledge were impressed 
by the good interfratemal spirit that 
prevailed and, as did the female rushees, 
enjoyed meeting the new people. However, 
the main complaint was the lack of enough 
time to get acquainted before having to chose 
preferences . 

Indications for changes were given as well 
as favorable remarks. Female rushees and 
rushers were pleased with sorority rush except 
for the desire of a more relaxed atmosphere. 
But suggestions for improving fraternity formal 
rush were given freely by both group- 
males. Some felt that formal rush was a 
necessitv. It sues rushees and rushers the 
opportunity to meet while in Open Rush : 
might never encounter each other. Perhaps, 
though, by having more time and making a 
strict or silence code similar to Panhellem 
rules would be beneficial to formal rush . 
total open rush was also proposed with pledg- 
ing being postponed until after three or four 
weeks of school to allow plenty oi time for 
getting acquainted. 

Thus one more Greek formal rush has occurred 

compliments and 
mplaints. tl

Senate Hears 
Reports 

by Carol Bickers 

A hodgepodge of ideas were discussed at 
the Student Senate meeting on Tuesday. In 
addition to reporting on the status of the 
open dorm visitation resolution, the Senate 
considered the rescheduling of homecoming and 
the question of the lien's Judicial Board. 

Earlier in the day the Student Life 
Committee had met and had voted to pass on 
to the faculty the Senate resolution asking 
for the liberalization of open dorm privi- 
leges. The committee, composed of faculty, 
students, and one trustee (absent), was in- 
formed that the next faculty meeting was 
scheduled for Sept. 18, but heard Mr. Mark 
Dulle, a faculty member, agree to attempt to 
call an earlier meeting. 

In further action on Tuesday President 
Allen and Dean Marsh, at an administrative 
council meeting, decided not to schedule 
another faculty meeting until October. How- 
ever, in order to have a faculty decision on 
the open dorm resolution before October, 
3enate President Rick Clark pledged that he 
vould try to have a faculty meeting scheduled 
for an earlier date. 

The Senate moved to reschedule homecom- , 
ing for Friday, February 3. It was pointed 
out by Clark that the original homecoming 
date, as set by the alumni office (Friday, 
March 2), would prevent some of Centenary's 
alumni from attending the event . Although 
Centenary scudents will be back at school 
only a few days prior to the spring semester 
date, the Senate felt that the February 3 
scheduling would be more convenient for the 
alumni. 

Questions concerning the Men's Judicial 
Board also arose at the afternoon meeting. 
It was pointed out by Clark that the bylaws 
of the Men's Judicial Board were not in com- 
plete compliance with the regulations set 
forth in the new Senate constitution. Fur- 
ther questions also arose over the purpose 
of the Judicial Board. At this point Mr. 
Millard Jones, faculty adviser to the Sen- 
ate, noted that the Student - Facul ty Disci- 
plinary Committee was designed to handle 
the severe cases or cases on appeal rather 
than the minor disputes. He further com- 
mented that the "Student -Faculty Disciplin- 
ary Committee wants the Student Judicial 
Board to handle its own affairs as much as 
possible." When no definite conclusion 
could be reached on the matter from the ex- 
isting information, Sophomore Senator Jeff 
Hendricks was appointed to make a check of 
the Resident Advisor contracts to determine 
if cases should go to the Judicial Board or 
the Student -Faculty Disciplinary Committee. 

It was also announced at "he meeting 
that the Student Activities Calendar would be 
published in a few days. Futhermore, 
Clark noted that the Admissions Office 
was already hard at work on Junior-Senior 
Day which will be held on November 3. 

Due to the conflicts in class sche- 
dules, the Senate has been unable to decide 
upon a permanent meeting day. The next 
meeting of the Student Senate will be held 
on Tuesday, Sept. 12, at 7:00 p.m. in the 
Senate Room of the SUB. 





Gent Chaplain New Dean 



The Right Reverend Iverson B. Noland, 
D.D. , Bishop of Louisiana, has appointed 
Centenary's Episcopal Chaplain, The Rev- 
erend Kenneth W. Paul, to be Dean of the 
Shreveport Convocation, which includes 
Minden and Mansfield. 

Father Paul has been the Rector of the 
Church of the Holy Cross since May of 1968 
and the Episcopal Chaplain at Centenary 
since July, 1965. Prior to his election 
as Rector of Holy Cross , he was on the 
staff of St. Mark's Church, Shreveport, and 
taught Religion at St. Vincent's Academy. 

The new Dean, who succeeds The Reverend 
J. Lawrence Plumley, D. D. , late Rector 
of St. Mark's was educated at Asbury Col- 
lege, Wilmore, Ky., Southern Methodist 
University, Dallas, Texas, The University 
of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee, Oxford 
University, Oxford, England, and The General 
Theological Seminary, New York City. He 
was ordained to the ministry of the Episco- 
pal Church as Decon in Bastrop, Louisi- 
ana in 1965 and to the Priesthood in St . 
Mark's Church, Shreveport, in May of 
1966. Prior to his ordination to the 
Episcopal Church, the Dean was an ordained 
Methodist clergynan. This summer he stu- 
died in Canturbury, England with the Arch- 
bishop of Canturbury and the Russian Or- 
thodox Archbishop of Great Britain and 
Ireland. 

Dean Paul will continue to serve as 
Episcopal Chaplain to Centenary. 

It is the responsibility of the Dean, 
who is appointed for a term of 3 years , to 
preside at the Convocational Meetings and 
to convene the Clergy of the Convocation. 
The Canons of the Diocese provide that the 
Deans of Convocations shall have charge of 
the vacant missions in their respective 
Convocation; and Deacons in charge of Mis- 
sions shall be under the direction of the 
Deans; all subject to the approval of the 
Bishop. The Deans shall make at least one 
annual visit to each Mission Church and may 
be invited for toher visitations by each 
Parish Church in their Convocations. The 
title "The Veiy Reverend" is traditionally 
given the Dean. 



Coed Dorms at LSU 



Coed dormitories are under consideration 
by the University and are tentatively set 
to open in the fall of 1973, Dr. James W. 
Reddoch, vice chancellor for Student Affairs, 
at Louisiana State University in Baton 
Rouge, said last week. 

Reddoch gave the administration's defi- 
nition of coed dorms as "two towers, side 
by side, one for male students and one for 
female students , in which they share a 
common public area or lobby." 

The definition is also extended to 
include one building in which women would 
occupy certain floors and men other floors , 
Reddoch said. 

The question of a coed dorm has been 
discussed at length by the administration, 
housing officials and the Committee on 
Compus Life," he said. 

"Whether or not we will be able to ac- 
complish this will in part be determined 
by how quickly we can settle the more pres- 
sing problem of doing away with rules 
housing and food services that ai rent 
for women and men," Reddoch s 

Reddoch indicated coed arrangements may 
lead to housing men and women on box 
of the campus.

THE CONGLOMERATE 



September 8, 1972 












EDITORIAL 

In last week's CONGLOMERATE two sides 
of the dorm visitation argument were pre- 
sented, although the student letters hea- 
vily outweighed President Allen's comments 
in his interview. This week, the argu- 
ment is carried a few steps forward by 
Student Body Treasurer Tom Guerin, who, on 
the next page, charges the administration 
with "a deliberate attempt to stifle the 
democratic processes . " 

We'd all like some answers, and the 
CONGLOMERATE hopes to be able to provide 
them next week. Until then, an observa- 
tion. 

Centenary is a conservative campus. 
This was hammered home to me last night 
(Wednesday) when my favorite radical 
stopped by this office to ask, "If the 
students want improved hours, why do they 
ask for a moderate proposal? Don't they 
recognize the power of unattainable de- 
mands?" Ask for more than you want, he 
recommended, in order to get what you want. 
That's a simple, classic revolutionary (or 
just plain bargaining) tactic, but it 
requires some forms of misrepresentation 
and conspiracy to accomplish. By sticking 
to justifiable requests, our students 
have displayed their basic trust in the 
democratic processes described by Tom 
Guerin. 

One of the basics of government rests 
on the principle that no democracy works 
without an informed citizenry. To that 
end, the CONGLOMERATE calls on Dr. Allen, 
Dean Marsh, and trustees to publicly in- 
quire into Tom's charges. Do they have 
any factual basis? 

The students , too, have a duty to 
fulfill in the democratic ideal: they 
must know how the system works, in order 
to keep it running. Many students, then, 
might be interested in learning just which 
elected representatives and official bodies 
are their most effective agents. Presi- 
dent Allen, the Student Senate, and the 
faculty are the three well-know power cen- 
ters, with most of this power allotted to 
Dr. Allen and the trustees, but one major 
intermediary is often overlooked — the 
Committee on Student Life. 

Reorganized this semester as a marriage 
of the old Publications and Student Affairs 
committees , the Student Life Committee is 
the official liaison among faculty, stu- 
dents, and the administration. On Tuesday, 
as is reported in this issue's senate- 
story, the Student Life Committee accepted 
last week's senate resolution, and passed 
it on to the faculty, giving rise to the 
actions described in Tom's letter. The 
committee still has strong powers, though, 
especially the power to persuade and raise 
general hell. 

Know, then, that the Chairman is Ro- 
bert Ed Taylor, that Rick Clark, Sandy Bo- 
gucki , Cindy Yeast, Jeff Hendrix, and Mike 
Marcel are the voting student members, and 
that the committee meets every other Tuesday 
the ^j£jk_^ri_JJ^_Smith_Buildina.—TLC'

Speaker's Corner 



IF NOT THE DORM, THEN . 



The Administration, in that abundance 
of wisdom which apparently comes with 
age, position, or authority, has decreed 
that our dorm rooms are inferior to other 
areas around and about the Campus for the 
purpose of cross-gender socialization. 

If such is the case, then said areas 
should be as accessible to the student as 
possible, even if merely for that purpose 
and none other. Unfortunately, such is 
not the case. And if such is not the case, 
then, in order to facilitate the Admini- 
stration's view (why did 'whimsy' pop 
into my head?) , such must be made the 
case, and immediately. 

Therefore, it is only fair, just, 
fitting and proper that, rather than the 
current hodge-podge of hours now in effect, 
the Library should be open from 7 am to 
midnight seven days a week. 

The SUB hours, currently ludicrous 
not matter the purpose assigned to 
that building, should be from 7 am to 
2 am, seven days a week. 

Dormitory lobbies, in all dorms, 
women's as well as men's, must be open 
to all students, of whatever sex, two 
four hours a day. And, since coeduca- 

itching is the most stimulating 
and vigorous intersex activity considered 
permissible for those who are either 
single, C) under 35, or (3) both, then 
the ti a sets in each lobby must be 



allowed to operate twenty-four hours a 
day. 

Since even these areas combined provide 
only limited space, there is one last sig- 
nificant area for cross -gender socializa- 
tion: the campus itself. Accordingly, 
any student of either sex must be permitted 
to leave his or her dorm at any hour of the 
day or night so as to meet any other stu- 
dent on the school grounds. And, to as- 
sure the privacy which the Administration 
apparently thinks is available elsewhere, 
all light fixtures not inside a building' 
for the purposes of illuminating the in- 
sides of that building must be removed. 

Only in such a way can Hamilton Hall 
justifiably equate "available recreational 
facilities and lounges as well as study 
areas" with our "center of activities 
for study, personal living, and group 
living." 

Unless such remedial steps are taken, 
and taken immediately, it will become 
abundantly clear that Centenary College is 
not for everyone. And, while it may be 
nice to have a select clientel, how can a 
Methodist college expect to attract that 
many students for the priesthood?

THE CONGLOMERATE

WEEKLY MAIL 



NOT SINCE REYKJAVIK 

To the Editor: 

I have seen, in my two plus years here at 
Centenary, a rather broad range of decisions 
made by the various bodies on this campus 
from the Student Senate on up through the 
President. A number of these decisions have 
been excused as miseducated, hasty or dumb 
and dismissed from the active consciousness 
of those involved with sayings such as 
"good ol' Centenary strikes again." Most 
of us in this community are familiar with 
President Allen's summer decision on visi- 
tation and a large number of students at 
heart have expressed their feelings to 
the effect that that decision fits the above 
described category rather well. 

But to get to the point. To those around 
here who are rapidly starting to believe 
that all decisions being made fit the 
aforementioned class, I have a glimmer of ■ 
hope. The Administration has engineered 
one of the most beautiful moves since 
Reykjavik. In response to student outcry 
for a redress of grievances, "Dad" (as in 
Dad and Thad) Allen said to go through the 
proper channels. So off we went again. 
Senate passed the petition (described in 
last week's CONGLOMERATE) , Student Affairs 
passed the petition rather readily and the 
next stop is to be the Faculty. Although 
not always spelled out in the chain of 
"proper channels" this body's opinions is 
usually solicited in such matters as visita- 
tion and the consumption of alcoholic bev- 
erages on campus. But I stray again. (You 
know, it's quite easy to be led astray on 
such a quiet, sleeply little campus.) Dean 
Marsh has let the word out that since there 
is so little new business since the pre- 
orientation faculty conference, there is no 
reason for a faculty meeting this month. In 
other words, the petition passed this year 
by the Student Senate and Student Affairs 
will Tot till at least the third Monday of 
October. 

While I applaude the ingenuity of the 
Administration, I feel that this move is 
a deliberate attempt to stifle the democra- 
tic processes by which we are supposedly 
trying to live by. 

I now ask the faculty of this college 
to ask themselves if the right to a speedy 
and fair redress of grievances exists on 
this campus and whether or not the students 
have these rights. 

Tom Guerin 



JUSTIFICATION 

To the Editor: 

In the administration's letter to par- 
ents, it is stated, "no need has been es- 
tablished for dorm visitation'. Might I

CALLING OTTO! 

To the Editor: 

We in Sexton need help desperately. Where 
is otto the Orkin Man when you really need 

him , 

Everyone expects .1 few insects in their 
rooms, but vou realne the situation is get- 
ting out of' hand when vou kill six cockroaches 
in one 3-hour period -- all in one room. The 
additional experience of having a roach greet 
you a cheery "good morning!" by crawling 
over your face is also a bit unnerving. 

Can the school do something about this, 
or must we adopt the "tum-the-other-cheek" 
policy on this matter? We would appreciate 
other' students ' opinions on this, as well 
as the school's. 

Thank You,

LOVE BOBBY, AMERICA 



To the Editor: 

Well, the world has a new chess champion. 
For the first time in history, no doubt, a 
chess champion has evoked world-wide hos- 
tility. Why? 

Cries of righteous indignation went up 
all over the glooe when Bobby Fischer decid- 
ed he wanted more money before he opened 
play. Is Bobby Fischer -- or Fischer's tal- 
ent -- public property, to be turned on and 
off at the whim of the masses? What unmit- 
igated gall his detractors have, to demand 
the right to command a man's very essence 
at the snap of their imperious finger! 

Derision was hurled at Fischer due to 
his insistence on perfect conditions of 
play. Ah, that Michaelangelo! Always 
insisting on marble rather than pumice! 
That von Braun, nit-picking over safety 
details before be sends three men into 
space! Is Fischer a slave, to be sent in- 
to a match without freely contracting the 
environment? My God, Caligula, that glad- 
iator demands a sword! 

Some of his foreign disdainers chose 
the chance to spit on America, decrying our 
'materialism'. Of course, their angry let- 
ters were written on a pen costing three 
weeks' wages, since their countries place 
other values higher than creature comforts , 
but I'm sure it hurt Mr. Fischer all the 
same. 

Let's grow up. Psychological masochism 
is a perverted, counter -human, and infan- 
tile pastime. America has no need to be 
ashamed of Bobby Fischer. She can should, 
and must be proud of him. For Bobby 
Fischer embodies all that once was great 
about this land -- a snarling, pugnacious, 
and bellicose contention that each man's 
life is his own. 

Seated upon the chess throne of the 
world, Bobby Fischer has found his place. 
Let us hope his critics will, as well-- 
with the thermostat on "High".

THE CONGLOMERATE 



September 8, 1972 



Drama, Ballet Set 



The Genesians, religious drama group in 
residence at the Church of the Holy Cross 
(Episcopal) , will present a double-bill as 
its first production of the season. 

Genesian Director Robert Lightsey has 
selected Darius Leander Swann's "The Circle 
Beyond Fear" for the drama group and Lea 
Darwin will present her Darwin Dance Theatre 
in a repeat performance of "Miracle of 
Pentecost." 

"The Circle Beyond Fear" is a drama of 
the love that casts out fear. It was first 
written for choral speaking but has been 
staged several times. In the play Cain typi- 
fies all the pride and fear which lead men to 
defy God and to destroy their brothers. His 
trial, his flight, and his final discovery 
of the supporting strength of the circle 
surrounding him is portrayed in movement as 
well as in words. 

The two shows will be presented Wednesday 
and Thursday, Sept. 13 and 14, at 8 p.m. in 
the chancel of the church, 875 Cotton. No 
advance reservations will be taken and tick- 
ets will be on sale at the door. 

Members of the ballet company are Paula 
Ambrico, Anne Berry, Wendy Buchwald, Lynn 
Croft, Kim Darwin, Jodie Glorioso, Debra 
Hearon, Twyla Lee, Kim Ludlow, Mary Mulkey, 
Vicki Murray, Cindy Phillips, Donna Snoot, 
and Doug Wilson. 

The cast of the drama includes Vicci 
Robb, Winnie Kohout, Nancy Spur lock, Janet 
Fontenot, Robert Gould, Randy Carter, Scott 
Carter (who plays Cain) , and Eddie Matlock. 

Miss Spur lock, Mrs. Robb, and Gould have 
appeared in previous Genesian productions 
while the others are joining the troupe with 
this show. 

"The Circle Beyond Fear" was first pre- 
sented by office workers at the Inter-Church 
Center in New York and was later produced 
with a student cast in an outdoor setting at 
Union Seminary. It has been played under 
Swann's direction in India. 

Lightsey said he will stage this show in 
the style of the Genesian" s "Christ in the 
Concrete City" which was presented last 
April. 

Stage manager for the drama is Ann 
Matthews, and Judye Jones and Nancy 
Middleton are the costumers. 

Miss Darwin choreographed "Miracle of 
Pentecost", a modern ballet arranged to music 
and the psalms and writings of Pentecost 
(Whit) Sunday, for presentation at Holy Cross 
last May 28 under the sponsorship of The 
Genesians. 

Costumes for the dancers are by Centenary 
student Mary Ann Barr and sound production by 
former Centenary physics instructor John 0. 
Williams. 

"The Circle Beyond Fear" has been sched- 
uled for presentation during the morning 
service on Sept. 17 at Trinity Episcopal 
Church in Natchitoches. 

The September 13 and 14 production is in 
celebration of the church's observance of the 
feast of the Holy Cross and subsequent pro- 
ductions this season will be in observance of 
church feast days.

Thriller Reviewed 



by Sam Hill 

Currently all America is aswarm with 
books detailing the difficult and exact- 
ing code of the Mafia. First came Mario 
Puzo's The Godfather , followed by the God - 
mother , The Don , Gay Talese's Honor Thy 
Father , and others too humorous to mention. 
Now a new bombshell has hit the stands, 
one that lays bare to the reader a tougher, 
more unrelenting, more all -commanding code, 
a code that makes the Oath of the Black 
Hand seem frivolous by the juxtaposition 
therewith. The book is Gentlemanly Speak- 
ing. 

Oh, yes, all the classic and time-proven 
elements are there . . . but this is no 
cheap thriller. Oh, no. This blockbuster 
sets it out straight, cold; brutally but 
without melodrama. 

First it details the hierarchy of the 
living institution it protrays. All the 
way from the leader, esconced in the bush- 
surrounded headquarters, Dr. Allen, to 
the caporegime of the youth division, Rick 
Clark. 

Then it gives the requirements the 
group requires of all those who choose 
to cast their fates upon the truckbed of 
the organization. Step by step it details 
the strenuous articles of laws, rattling 
out in deadening exactitude the horde 
of illicit actions no loyal partisan may 
conduct. It even goes fo sar as to list 
rules for the "soldiers" quarters. 

Gentlemanly Speaking then presents a 
picture of the internal politics of the 
empire, and, in a horrifying chapter, de- 
tails the ritualistic trial of those who 
infract the society's rules. 

In an effort to relieve the virtually 
suffocating tension thus far produced, the 
author then gives information on the spec- 
trum of benefits the ruling oligarchy pro- 
vides for the rank-and-file. 

Next comes an expose of all the inter - 
anl cliques into which even members of a 
tightly-knit cabal will fragment themselves. 
The list is virtually interminable, and 
one wonders how the society can continue 
to function, as atomized as it has become. 

As in every organiztion, there are com- 
mendations for achievement, and the author 
of Gentlemanly Speaking does not fail to 
note them. 

The tautness of the treatise is then 
allowed to collapse as the author deluges 
the reader with a seemingly endless col- 
lage of insignificant imperatives, instruc- 
tions, and nitpicking compiled by members 
of the society over the years. The last 
section of the book is saved only by the 
moving anthem the deeply dedicated legions 
to the institution at frequent occasions 
vocally thrust upon the world in a pride - 
ful and loyal display allegiance to their 
chosen cabal. 

It is on that note that the book ends, 
and the reader is left with the impression 
of a collection of diverse elements banded 
together in common cuase, bearing the hard- 
ships and occassionally irrational laws 
and ritualism of an overly self-important 
hierarchy to share in the benefits of the 
organization, one to which they have devoted 
many good days of their lives, a sizable 
portion of their fortunes, and the essence 
of their sacred honor. It is a book worth, 
reading if one seeks an understnading of 
that peculiar and often inexplicable in- 
stitution. 



by Cece Russell 



The entire theatre department is 
excited about the arrival of a new 
instructor, Barbara Acker. Barbara comes 
to us after completing one year of 
teaching at Prairie View ASM in Texas. ■,. 
She graduated from the University of Texas, 
where she majored in drama, and went on to 
receive her masters in theatre at Case 

Western Reserve University in Cleveland, 
Ohio. Our best wishes are with Barbara as 
she begins her first year at Centenary. 

The playhouse has had Rick Hamilton, 
a very talented actor, as a guest for the 
past week. Rick attended Lon Morris Jr. 
College and the University of Texas as an 
acting major. He has been performing for 
the past 7 years with such famous acting 
companies as the Oregon Shakespearean Fes 
tival, Los Angelos Repertory Company and 
the Milwaukee Repertory Company. Rick 
will be returning to Milwaukee shortly, 
where he will continue to act with the 
company there. While at Centenary, Rick 
has been lecturing to several classes at 
Marjorie Lyons Playhouse. He has been 
thrilling students with his reading from 
such plays as Bacchae , Henry IV ^ Part I_, 
Much Ado About Nothing, Julius Caesar and 
The Glass Menagerie . Not only is Rick a 
strong actor, he also has an amazing 
ability to relate classical works to con- 
temporary situations. 

The cast has been annomced for the 
first production of the 1972-73 season, 
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead . 
The parts of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern 
will be played by Doug Wilson and Joe Al- 
lain respectively. Jack Harrington will 
portray The Player. Alfred will be played 
by Hamp Simmons and the four Tragedians 
are George Hancock, Rusty Simmons, Rusty 
Vaucher , and Bob Robinson. Brook John- 
ston will be seen as Hamlet and Ginger 
Heaton as Ophelia. Ken Curry will portray 
Claudius and the part of Gertrude will be 
played by Barbara Acker. Dan Christiaens 
will take the part of Polonius. The rest 
of the cast consits of Don Belanger as the 
soldier, Jeff Hendricks as Horatio, and 
Paul Overley, Criss Woodruff, Ann Gremillion, 
Wendy Buchwald and Joyce Sellers as Ladies 
and courtiers. The production will be 
directed by C. L. Holloway. 

We need your help! Every Saturday from 
9:00 am until noon there will be technical 
work Leing done at the playhouse. If you 
are interested, come down. Everyone will 
be glad to see you.

NEW ORLEANS SOUND 



When Charlie Gillett wrote in The 
Sound of the City that New Orleans was 
the true home of rock § roll, his point 
was probably not grasped by most readers 
of his definitive book on rock history. 
For it's a sad fact that the legend •pf 
New Orleans has yet to be recognized in 
the public mind the way those of other 
cities, such as Chicago, Detroit and San 
Francisco have, as a unique and influ- 
ential blend of sound, style and feeling. 
The problem is that the classic New Or- 
leans records date from a period preceding 
the arrival of the Beatles, and they have 
never been reissued to any great extent. 
Even with the current upsurge of interest 
in rock's past, most rock fans are un- 
familiar with the work of New Orleans' 
greatest talents. 

The New Orleans sound captured R§B 
in the early '50s with Fats Domino, Smi- 
ley Lewis, Guitar Slim, Shirley fj Lee, 
and Professor Longhair; took over rock 
§ roll a few years later with Huey Smith, 
Frankie Ford, Jimmy Clanton, and Clar- 
ence "Forgman" Henry. It came back again 
in the arly '60s with Irma Thomas, Ernie 
K-Doe, Aaron Neville, Lee Dorsey, Allen 
Toussaint, Chris Kenner, Benny Spellman, 
Barbara George, Jessie Hill, Joe Jones, 
muster Brown and Wilbert Harrison. All 
the records by these artists were imbued 
with that shuffling "second line" rhythm 
peculiar to New Orleans, and a cheery, 
laid-back openness that never failed to 
infect listeners with the Boogie Disease. 
You couldn't not like a New Orleans re- 
cord -- it was the perfect goodtime 
music. 

The New Orleans rock scene dried up 
around 1962 due to a complicated web of 
legal and financial hassles.. Most of 
the musicians involved had grown cyni- 
cal of the musci business, but a few of 
the lesser-known ones decided to leave 
the city in search of greater success. 
Harold Battiste, the brilliant black 
arranger, went to Los Angelos and made 
stars of Sonny § Cher. Piano player 
Mac Rebennack, who had recorded under his 
own name for the Ace, Rex and AFO lables 
as well as sitting in on many a session 
since the mid '50s, followed him and 
eventually became known to the new freak 
audience as Dr. John, the Night Tripper. 

I was never very enthusiastic about 
Dr. John's music, which seems like a gross 
parody of everybody's witchdoctor stereo- 
types about New Orleans' past, raising 
up melodramatic Hollywood voodoo images in 
order to pander to youth's faddish interest- 
in the occult. If the New Orleans sound 
had to be exploited, I'd have rather seen 
some deserving genius like Juey Smith reap 
the benfits , but at the same time it 
did have that unmistakeable feel : there 
was something gritty and authentic 
down there beneath the surface, giving Dr. 
John's music a vitality that couldn't 
be denied. 

Well, the times have changed, history 
is in this year, and on his new album 
(Gumbo, Acto 7006) Dr. John takes a look 
at his own. His self-penned liner notes, 
Ued with inaccuracies as they are, 

mpt to give an honest picture of 

re the music came from, crediting Re 
nnack's mentors for every riff, lick and 
arrangement . 

It opens with "Iko Iko", a song brim- 
intiasies of Orleans, 
.ockomo 
. an na thing about they city and it 
sums up every thing 
Tiusic. 
-presented by five songs, 
including "High Blood Pressure," "lon't 
You Just Know It" and "I'll Be John 



THE CONGLOMERATE 
Brown." It will take more than good, inten- 
tions to convince me that anyone could 
ever top Huey Smith on his turf, but 
I have to say Dr. John does a more cre- 
ditable job than any of the other white 
rock § rollers, from P. J. Proby to the 
Flamin' Groovies, who have attempted the 
same. 

More significant is the attention he 
gives to some of New Orleans' forgotten 
greats, including Earl King, Archibald, and 
Professor Longhair. Archibald recorded for 
Imperial in the late '40 's and is best 
known for his arrangement of the old song 
"Stagger Lee." He changed it from a whiney 
country blues standard to a rocking R§B 
song, and it was his arrangement that 
Lloyd Price and others made the charts 
with. Dr. John is the first to give 
credit where it's due, so that Archibald can 
now get at least some belated recompense 
for his contribution. 

Professor Longhair is long overdue 
for recongnition. .Every pianist to come 
out of New Orleans acknowledges him as 
the father of rock § roll piano; some 



September 8, 197? 



have called him the greatest living pianist, 
others have credited him with inventing 
rock 5 roll as far back as. 1936. A forth- 
coming album from Atlantic, and perhaps 
another from Ace, should help lift his 
veil of obscurity, but for the present 
Dr. John's version of the classic "Tipi- 
tina" is enough to whet the appetite for 
more. If the strangely fluid, almost dis- 
cordant style used by Dr. John on this tract 
is indeed a faithful recreation of the 
original , I can hardly wait to hear the 
real thing. 

Within the next year, the companies 
who hold the rights to most of the clasic 
New Orleans recording will be doing mas- 
sive reissues, and with the heritage of 
that great city once again accessible, 
perhaps more interest will be shown the 
fine artists still working there. The 
music scene is ripe for another breath of 
fresh New Orleans air, and if it takes 
someone like Dr. John to open the door, who 
am I to complain? You owe yourself the 
education this album has to offer, and 
this is one case where education is fun. 



Well, the soft summer breeze on the Texas 
meadow came to Centenary Friday and left many 
people very satisfied, including myself.

Denver, the four-membered group ventured into 
Centenary and Shreveport Friday afternoon, 
after coming from a concert for students at 
Arkansas State University in Jonesboro. 

The whole group was very complimentary of 
Shreveport (saying it "wasn't too bad.") and 
as well, Centenary. After their first 45 
minute performance, they all spoke of the 
warmness of the audience. The group, com- 
posed of Susan Swenson, Gordon Parrish, 
Parker, and Jim Ratts, became professional 
about two years ago after playing together 
for several years on the Texas Tech 
at Lubbock. 

Their music struck me as a dif feren 
type of folk rock group with new ideas. Th 
combination of Peter, Paul, and Mary and y 
Crosby, Stills, and Nash (before Young en- 
tered the group) type of singing left me' 
agape during the entirety of their perform- 
ance. The blending of three beautiful voices 
and the clean instrumentation made the group 
very entertaining and relaxing to listen to 
(Clean is my term used in describing a type 
of music that isn't slopped together, but is 
separate and clear.) 

Reviewing the group as a conglomeration 
(ugh) of individuals, it was a new type of 
thing to listen to. A cello, which had no 
future past the orchestra, was magnificent 
in blending in with the accoustical guitars. 
The members performed resplendently, were 
very much into their music, but rot to the 
point of cutting off the audience, with whom 
they were very informal. The only mistake 
was not having adequate speaker systems, 
which did not do as much justice as 
system would have done. 

There was no hard rock, no ear 
just simple, plain, unelectric music — a 
necessary change in anyone's listening 
habits. I nope that they will consider 
coming back again, especially when 
no Rush parties and everyone is settled

Microfische? 



The Friends of the Centenary College 
Library, at their board of trustees meeting 
in August, voted to purchase a new microfische 
reader for the Library. The President of the 
Friends, Bob McKee, and the library staff are 
exploring the market to determine the best 
reader to buy for the funds available. 

Microfische is a new form of microfilm 
now being used widely in libraries. It is 
typically a four by six inch sheet of film, 
on which from forty to one hundred pages of 
printed material is reproduced in microsco- 
pic form. The advantage of microfische over 
roll type microfilm lies in the ease with which 
the four by six sheets may be stored in a file 
drawer and the facility with which needed 
materials may be located. Newsweek is one of 
the popular periodicals that the Library now 
receives on microfische.. 

Students who have used the present micro- 
fische reader will welcome the new reader. 
Advances in technology have produced better 
lighting, better lenses, and better screens, 
which will give better image production and 
put the old reader in the class of a still 
running but not too efficient Model A Ford. 

The Friends have also appropriated approxi- 
mately $300 to supplement the college book 
budget in the purchase of needed books.

COMMUNITY CHORAL GROUP FORMS 



by Chuck 

Dr. Bill Ballard, the new choir director, 
recently announced the formation of the 
Centenary -Community Choral Society. The 
purpose of the group is to provide students 
and citizens of the community with an oppor- 
tunity to participate in a choral series with 
out being a member of the choir. Anyone can 
audition, and no previous choral experience 
is necessary. 

Auditions will be held by appointment 
with Dr. Ballard in Room 109 of the Hurley 
Music Building (phone 5272) . 



Miller 

The group's first performance will be 
"The Nativity According to St. Luke" on 
December 1 and 2 in the Chapel. At present, 
they are practicing every Wednesday night 
at 7:30 in the Hurley Auditorium in prepara- 
tion for the concert. These practices are 
being held in sections, with the Choir mem- 
bers supplying help for those who are new 
to choral music. Both the Choir and Dr. 
Ballard have expressed great hopes for the 
newly-formed groupj and encourage anyone 
interested in choral music to audition.

Insight by Night 
Dream School 



Would you like to attend classes at 
night in a super-university? You can choose 
the courses that interest you (although 
there are some required courses), and be 
taught by the most advanced teachers from 
all over the world. No need to lose any 
sleep studying at night because you will 
be in the university while you are asleep. 
There are no fees for these courses. 

If you saw such an ad in a newspaper, 
you would probably assume it was a fraud 
and not bother to make inquiries. No, I 
haven't seen such an ad either, but I've 
been reading about just such a school in 
the sane, sober words of Shafica Karagulla 
in her book, Breakthrough to Creativity 
(Devorss, I.os Angeles , 19b/) . 

A Turkish-born American, Shafica 
Karagulla has advance degrees in medicine 
and psychiatry and has done research in 
neurosurgery at McGill University. She 
was an assistant professor of psychiatry 
at the State University of New York's 
Downtown :iedical Center in Brooklyn when 
she was challenged to read a book about 
Fdgar Caycc with an open mind. She did so, 
and as a result decided to seek out and 
study people with unusual mental abili- 
ties . Because of her tact and medical 
standing she was able to study many very 
unusual professional people who prefer 
anonymity, but who because of their strange 
ibilities (which Karagulla calls "higher 
sense perception" or HSP) are very success- 
ful in their work. 

There are doctors who car- see internal 
crgans of their patients (or anyone else) 
at will. May doctors (and others) can 
see very distinct light bodies or auras 
around people. Some of the more adept see 
in these aura vortices or funnel-shaped 
forms attached to internal organs and 
endocrine glands. (This includes not 
only the chakras of yogic lore, but several 
other vortices.) The reports of these 
auras corroborate each other consistently 
as to colors , shapes and changes due 
to disease. The doctors use their per- 
ception of these auras to make accurate 
diagnoses; however, naturally enough, they 
don't let on to their colleagues or their 
patients what they are seeing and thus they 
order the standard diagnostic tests. Most 
of these doctors were gratified that other 
ph>sicians had similar abilities so that 
they weren't completely unique. Some 
doctors are in telepathic contact with 
their patients, so that any time a patient 
is in trouble the doctor knows it -- and 
knows just what the trouble is. Other 
doctors have phenomenal healing ability 
which they conceal from their colleauges 
ients, although, of course, they 
use it . 

But to me the most intriguing part of 
this st lie "Dream School." Several 
the people Karagulla studies attend the 

lizing internal organs in the "nioht 
isses ." 

The most extensive account is 

£ an education consu i - rm. '

INTRAMURALS FOR UPCOMING YEAR 



The Men's Intramural Council, at its or- 
ganizational meeting Tuesday night, outlined 
this year's schedule and regulations. The 
Council is under the advisement of Coach Val 
Tucker and the leadership of student direc- 
tors, Bill Dunlap and Henry Gordon. 

The Council has set aside the next two 
months for football, bowling, ping-pong, and 
pool. Team rosters for football and bowling 
are due this Tuesday at the Council's next

ball rosters should be accompanied by a $10 
entry fee. The football season is scheduled 
to open Sept. 18. The bowling rosters re- 
quire payment of a $10 deposit which will 
be refunded at the end of the season. 

The Council has scheduled volleyball and 
3-on-3 basketball for November and December. 
Next semester action continues with basket- 
ball and racquetball, followed by slow-pitch 
softball, tennis, riflery, golf, and horse- 
shoes . 

The Council also established eligibility

full-time student or graduating senior who 
is currently enrolled at Centenary with the 
fol lowing restrictions :

will be determined by the intramural direc- 
tors. 

2. Professional athletes are eligible to 
participate in those sports in which they do 
not compete professionally. 

3. Fraternities are permitted to use active

trophies will be awarded in all team and 
individual events at a special intramural 
presentation in May.

she often reads an account in the newspapers 
of a scientific discovery that she knows

same people show up in these classes 
night after night, but usually she doesn't 
know them in the waking state. On one 
occassion, however, she noticed an old friend 
in the classroom. The next day she called

Cage Outlook Bright, Interest Building, 600 Tickets Sold 



The Centenary Gents do not open their 
1972- '73 basketball season for another 
eleven weeks, but already the interest 
and anticipation is building for what 
could be the finest season in Centenary 
history. This interest is evidenced in 
the fact that already over 600 season tic- 
kets have been sold, without any kind of 
campaign drive. The reasons for this op- 
timism are manifold: the return of all 
five end-of-season starters from last year's 
fast -finishing team, the addition of junior 
college standout Roosevelt Fuller, the 
pick of last year's outstanding freshman 
team which posted a 20-4 record, and the 
signing of some outstanding freshman 
prospects, including 7'0" high school 
All-American Robert Parish. 

The freshman, who might have an immediate 
impact on the Gents this season because of 
the new NCAA rules, include Cal Smith, a 
6'7" forward, Welton Brookshire, a 6'8" 
forward, Barry McLeod, a 6' guard, and Jim 
Bonds, a 6 '3" guard, in addition to Parish. 
A future article will be devoted to these 
freshman recruits in more detail. 

Among last year's freshmen, most inter- 
ests centers around 6 '5" forward Leon John- 
son, who led the Gentlets to their sparkling 
record with 26.7 points and IS. 8 rebounds 
per game. Other members off last year's 
freshman team vying for varsity experience 
this year include forwards Jerry Waugh (17.6 
points, 12.6 rebounds) and Rick Jacobs (17.5 
points) and a strong group of guards --Stan

Any independents interested in bowling 
in the intramural program should contact 
John Atchley at 5654 by Tuesday. Form 
your own team and call, or call indivi- 
dually. The bowling competition will 
occur at Tebbe's Bowlero, Thursdays at 
8:30 p.m. 



All participants in intramural football 
this fall are asked to meet Tuesday in the 
Dome at 7:00 p.m. for a briefing and expla- 
nation of the rules. 



Any boy interested in playing varsity 
baseball should contact Coach Sigler in the 
Dome immediately. Fall workouts have 
already begun! 



Any boy interested in running cross- 
country should contact Dr. Hansen. 



Independents are urged to participate 
in intramural football by forming teams. 
Rostere must be given to the student direc- 
tors by Tuesday night, Sept. 12. 



U'elker (15.7), Fred Niebrugge (11.6), and 
Die Kinkelaar (9.7J. This year's and last 
year's freshmen who do not play varsity will 
form what should be a very exciting junior 
varsity team. 

All these new players, notwithstanding, 
Coach Larry Little will rely chiefly on re- 
turners from last year's 13-12 squad. Eight 
lettermen return from that team which won 
7 of their last 9 games . 

Top returnee is Shreveport 's Larry Davis , 
a 6 '3" senior who led the Gents in virtually 
every category last year. Larry averaged 
20.5 points and 8.2 rebounds last season, 
both team highs. In his two varsity seasons 
he has sunk 541 of his field goal attempts on 
a wide variety of twisting shots near the 
basket and long jumpers. 

Forwards John Hickerson and James "Skeet- 
er" Home also return to give the Gents a 
very experienced front line. 6 '5" Hickerson, 
a 2-year letterman from Bossier City, scored' 
at 14.0 clip while shooting at over SOI from 
the field. 6 '7" Home, of Albany, N.Y. , shot 
for an 11.4 average, while grabbing 7.9 
rebounds per game. 

The starting backcourt from last year re- 
turns, led by Seniors Melvin Russell and 
Milton "Roadrunner" Home. This duo combined 
for about 16 points and 8 assists per game.

Baseball Work Begins 

The Centenary Gents began baseball work- 
outs Tuesday in preparation for their fall 
schedule. The fall work mainly serves as a 
time for experimentation and practice for 
the spring season. Coach Sigler plans to 
get a good look at newcomers to the base- 
ball program and also possibly try veterans 
at new positions. He welcomes people to 
try out for the team. The fall action be- 
gins next Thursday with a 4:00 p.m. double- 
header against East Texas Baptist at the 
Gents' home field. On the 18th, the Gents 
host Louisiana College for a 1:00 p.m. 
doubleheader. The fall schedule is con- 
cluded with two road doubleheaders--Sept. 
22 at ETBC in Marshall and Oct. 2 at Louis- 
iana College in Pineville. 








Other returnees who will probably see ac- 
tion include center Lonnie LeFevre, a 6 '8" 
senior, who averaged 6.5 points' while being 
hobbled most of the season with a bad ankle, 
6 '7" senior John Murphy, and 6'0" junior 
Dave Deets . 

In addition to these returnees, Fuller 
should greatly aid the Gent attack. A high 
school All-American at Shreveport's Valencia 
High School , he has played the last two years 
at Henderson County Junior College in the 
tough Texas Eastern League. Playing both 
forward and guard, he averaged 26 points and 
9 rebounds last season. 

Working against the Gents ' success is their 
usually demanding schedule, which includes 
home and home series with teams such as 
Houston, Indiana State, and Arkansas State, 
plus single games with Arkansas, Texas, and 
Arizona State. The Gents also travel to 
Hawaii for the two games with the national- 
power Rainbows. In addition the Gents will 
host the Shreveport Invitational Tournament 
which includes SMU, Louisiana Tech, and 
Houston Baptist. (A more complete report 
on this schedule will appear later in the 
CONGLOMERATE.) 

All of these factors add up to produce 
what should be a most exciting season for 
the Gents. Coaches Little and Riley Wallace 
have assembled a group which has already 
excited the imaginations of the basketball 
fans of the area as seen in the high demand 
for season tickets at this early date.

NO BRAG, JUST FACT 



by Jeff Daiell 

Warren Levi ngs ton , Centen- 
ary's new director of Admis- 
sions, is a 36-year-old Cen- 
tenary graduate with a Master's 
in guidance and Counseling . A 
former Methodist minister , he 
is beginning his fifth year in 
our Admissions department. He 
is also, for those of you with 
left-over eggs and tomatoes, 
the man who brought me to Cen- 
tenary. When I requested this 
conversation, Mr. Levingston 
responded quickly- -and, obvi- 
ously, in the affirmative. 

A few years ago, the ABC 
television network ran a wes- 
tern entitled "The Guns of Will 
Sonnett" starring Walter Brennan 
in the title role (Will Sonnett, 
not the guns) with Dack Rambo 
as his grandson. Besides his 
disconcerting habit of praying 
at the beginning and the end of 
each episode, Will also made 
frequent use of one particular 
phrase: "Mo brag, just fact." 

That phrase could be aptly 
used to describe the attitude 
with which Warren Levingston, 
Centenary's new Director of 
Admissions, approaches both 
prospective Gents and also 
current students curious about 
what is actually going on in 
his office. 

His staff includes Ken Wea- 
ver, 'lark Mo* furry, and Mary 
Ann Garrett, the latter two 
being '72 graduates. Mr. Lev- 
ingston compares his job to 
that of a symphony conductor, 
insuring that all members func- 
tion so as to produce harmoni- 
ously effective results. 



The four divide their work 
geographically, with the main 
emphasis --with certain excep- 
tions, on the area within a 
300 mile radius of Shreveport. 

"That's part of our new ap- 
proach," he explained, when I 
commented that the areas to 
which the four were assigned 
left out quite a few States. 
"The last couple of years our 
philosophy was, look: you don't 




Ellen Kearney Tonight 

Ellen Kearney, a veteran of 
folk clubs such as the "Bitter 
End" and "Castaways" in New York 
and an established talent who has 
played with Jerry Jeff Walker, 
David Bomberg, McKendree Spring 
and Carly Simon's Band will per- 
form here in the SUB tonight, 
tomorrow and Sunday nights at 8:00 
o.m. 



have a market in your back yard; 
and if we're going to survive, 
what you've got to do is to get 
out and hit the road and cover 
as much of the U. S. as you can." 
And that philosophy, he said, 
entailed expenses far out of 
proportion to its return. 

The student body basically 
comes from within that 300 miles , 
and efforts can produce far 
greater results inside that 
area. The exceptions include 
New Jersey, since so many Jer- 
seyites must leave the State if 
they seek a college career, and 
the 'northeast corridor" where 
the expense of schools makes 
Centenary competitive. 
NEW DIRECTIONS 
Naturally, a change in com- 
mand is associated with a change 
in direction. I asked Mr. Lev- 
ingston about new directions, 
aside, of course, from the new 
emphasis on the Shreveport region. 
He is embarking on a "Comprehen- 
sive Program" to be put into 
effect over the next few years -- 
consisting of several "parts." 
One will be to approach poten- 
tial students --especially fresh- 
men, he noted, since most trans- 
fers approach Centenary, rather 
than the other way around (I be- 
ing an exception, he remembered) 
---from every angle from which 
they can be approached: each 
influence that touches upon a 
potential student as he formu- 
lates his choice-of -col lege 
decision will be utilized: par- 
ents , guidance counselors , 
friends, alumni, choice of major, 
materials received from the col- 
leges who seek them or to whom

September IS, 1972 



The Raid Exchange 

The panty-raid, a time-honored col- 
legiate tradition, returned to Centenary 
College Sunday night. 

Following a dorm meeting at Cline 
Dorm, about two score Gents headed for 
Sexton Hall. Several of the more intrepid 
infiltrated that establishment searching 
for their prizes, only to be ejected by 
Cline Dorm-dad Steve Holt. 

Next, the women launched a counter-- 
raid, searching for the masculine 
counterpart to the articles the men 
were seeking . Following that , the 
men struck again. This time, however, 
the raid evolved into a discussion of 
President Allen's "revolutionary" 
change of dorm hours. The students 
decided to request the faculty at its 
next meeting to seek a change in Dr. 
Allen's radical move. That decision 
made, the students returned home. 

Through it all, a basic atmosphere 
of high spirits and general good humor pre- 
vailed, including a concerted effort to 
help when one girl fell and hit her head 
upon the street outside James Dorm. 

Election Looming, 
Only Differently 

The CONGLOMERATE erred in last week's 
article on the Senate elections. Now, 
however, the Elections Committee has en- 
lightened us, and we herein present the 
words of Chairman Barry Williams: 

"Elections for Freshmen senators 
(one Female and one male) and for junior 
female senator will be held on Monday, 
October 9th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. As 
necessary, there will be a run-off 
election held on Tuesday, October 10th 
from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

"Rules governing this election re- 
quire that for a candidates ' name to appear 
on the ballot, he or she must submit to 
Senate Elections Committee no later than 
Friday, September 29th at 4:30 p.m., a 
petition of at least fcrty signatures 
of full-time fellow classmates, a plat- 
form and a certication of a GPA of at 
least 2.0. A candidate may turn in a 
nicture if he wants his picture to appear 
in the CONGLOMERATE . Petition forms can 
be picked up in the Senate office any- 
time. 

"A meeting of candidates will be held 
on October 2nd to establish campaign 
procedures and to clarify any questions 
about the election." 

At the same time, elections for Cen- 
tenary Lady and Gent will be held. No- 
minations for these will be taken from 
the student body, and anyone can make 
such a nomination in the SUB starting 
Friday, the 15th of September. 



A series of continuing education courses 
for persons over sixty years of age will be 
offered at Centenary again this year after 
a lanse of three years. The snecial courses, 
offered without charge to those over sixty 
are sponsored jointly by the Caddo Council' 
for the Aging, Inc., and Centenary.

Clark on Enrollment 

President Rick Clark announced at 
Tuesday's Senate meeting that Centenary 
only has 690-710 full-time students this 
semester. Out of this number only 
412 students reside on campus. 

Clark went on to note that the junior 
class was the hardest hit in these en- 
rollment figures -it now only has 85 
students. In discussing this enroll- 
ment situation, Clark noted that since 
851 of Centenary's students come from 
an eight state Southern area, activites 
in these districts will be increased. 
Efforts are also being made to launch 
an admissions program in New Jersey 
where one out of every two students 
must go out of state to college due to 
the overcrowded educational centers. 

Fund for Ovendyke 

.a group of friends of Dr. W. Darrell 
Overdyke, Professor Emeritus of History, are 
contributing to the newly organized Overdyke 
Library Fund. The goal is to provide an 
endowment fund to honor Dr. Overdvke and to 
recognize his nearly 40 years as a member 
of the faculty and at times librarian of 
the college. The funds collected are to 
be invested through the college nool cf 
small endowments. The earnings each year 
are to be used by the Library to purchase 
books related to Antebellum and Southern 
History, the principle area of Dr. Overdvke 's 
history interests. 

Other friends of Dr. Overdyke who wish 
to contribute to the new fund mav send 
their gifts to the Library. The' Library 
will advise Dr. Overdyke of the receipt of 
each pift and provide the donor with an 
acknowledgment card. The gifts are tax 
deductable for state and federal income 
tax purposes. 




Senate President Rick Clark leads 

I Senate discussion during Wednesday 

meeting. Subjects included dorm hours. 

Senate Questions 
Board Legality 

At its Tuesday meeting the Senate 
again confronted the question of the 
legality of the Men's Judicial Board. 

According to Section XV of the 
Senate By-laws (approved 4-25-72): 
The members of the Men's and 
Women's Judicial Boards shall 
be selected as follows: In 
case of a vacancy, nominations 
shall be taken from the floor 
of the Senate. The representa- 
tives shall be voted on by the 
Senate . 
In agreement with this by-law the 
Elections Committee proposed that the 
Senate uphold its own by-laws and that 
the Judicial Board rewrite its own 
constitution to be in compliance. 
After this proposal was accepted by 
the Senate, Vice-President SanUy Bogucki 
asked if the Women's Judicial Bbard was 
meeting these requirements . Under the 
present guidelines for the Women's 
Judicial Board, last year's members 
are retained on the Board, with new 
members being elected as vacancies 
occur. In order to determine the present 
status of both Judicial Boards, Sandy 
Bogucki and Rick Clark will meet with 
the heads of these organizations. 

In other Senate action President 
Rick Clark noted that on Friday, Octo- 
ber 22, the Executive officers of the 
SGA will present the visitation reso- 
lution to the faculty. 

Following his appointment to the 
Student-Faculty Disciplinary Commit- 
tee Mr. Millard Jones resigned from 
his present position as Senate adviser 
since he felt that his position on 
both organizations would constitute 
a conflict of interests. Mr. Wesley 
Garvin will now serve as Senate adviser. 

Jess Gilbert's petition asking for 
the creation of the Centenary Camera 
Club was accepted by the Senate. The 
organization's petition and constitution 
will now be sent to the Student Life 
Committee. 

The next Senate meeting will be 
held at 10:40 a.m. on Thursday, 
September 21 in the Senate Room of 
the SUB. 

Notice to all Senators and committee 
Chairmen: The new Secretary for the 
Senate is Pam Sargent. If you need to 
contact her about Senate business, she 
may be reached at 24S-r Sexton or 
869-5506. 

Game, Wine Fest 

On October 1 the Senate will host 
its first "College Game." At Tuesday's 
Senate meeting Independent George Hancock 
proposed that the students participate 
in this game which was an overwhelming 
success at last semester's flSM retreat 
According to the rules the students, 
faculty, and administration exchange 
places and then work on the problems 
and assignments given them. 

A wine festival for the entire South 
is also being held on October 1 at the 
Downtown Convention Center. For $1 a 
visitor will have a chance to taste' 
various wines .

Interim at Colorado 

Looking for an interim course that 
offers fun and excitement as well as 
a rewarding educational experience? 

The Education Department is 
tentatively scheduling an outdoor ed- 
ucation interim at Singing River Ranch 
in Evergreen, Colorado. If this program 
is approved by the Curriculum Committee 
at Centenary, students will have an 
onportunity to work at this new outdoor 
facility for two weeks. 

Outdoor education is an innovation 
designed to acquaint students with their 
natural environment. Centenary stu- 
dents who attend this oroposed interim 
will primarily be working with fifth 
and sixth graders from Denver. In addi- 
tion to working as education aides, 
participants in the interim program will 
have an opportunity to enjoy the ski 
slooes of Colorado. Denver is only 
35 minutes away from the camp, while it 
is a four hour drive to Aspen. 

The general fees for the program 
are covered in the tuition. However, 
students will be expected to provide 
their own transportation and to pay a 
$45 board fee. 

Choir Season Opens 

The Centenary Choir begins its concert 
season with a performance for advertising 
men at the Shreveport Convention Center 
this Saturday (tomorrow) at 9:00 p.m. 
The Choir will entertain conventioneers 
with Bacharach's "What the World Needs 
Now is Love," Cole Porter's In the Still 
of the Night," "You," and a special ren- 
Lon of 'Thank Heaven for Little Girls 
by the male section. The Choir will be 
accompanied by an orchestra tinder the 
direction of Eddie Kozak. 



Catering To TheCollege 



THE CAFETERIA REPORT 



by Sam 

One of a host of controversial subjects 
at Centenary this year is the expected but 
nevertheless painful rise in the cost of 
cafeteria food. Lack of information con- 
cerning the reasons for the move have in- 
creased ill feeling on the part of students . 

The two main reasons given by E. J. Wil- 
liams , representative of Catering Management 
at Centenary, in a recent interview, were 
regular inflationary effects and several 
planned improvements. Improvements and pro- 
jects mentioned by Williams include l)'new 
beverage machines to handle the line flow 
more efficiently (These, said Williams, have 
already increased the rate of people moving 
through the lines) ; 2) the piping in of 
music to create a more pleasant atmosphere; 

3) the continued display of work by the art 
students and other interested persons ; 

4) a salad bar to be placed in the center of 
the cafeteria for use at both lunch and din- 
ner (The bar, as planned, will contain cold 
cuts at lunch along with jello, combination 
and potato salads. At dinner, two other 
salads will be added) ; 5) a change in cafe- 
teria chairs, the type as yet not selected 
by Williams though he prefers a one-piece 
chair able to be stacked and sturdier than 
those now in the cafeteria. 

The special Tuesday night programs, says 
Williams, will be continued with the same 
menus as last year and, hopefully, a few ad- 
ditions . 



Hill 




-Srew&- 



"I want to register as an anarchist 

- ;°.ved 



Williams buys the food for the cafeteria 
himself, selecting what he considers the best 
meats available from the wholesale stores . 
Leftovers, he says, are either re-used, fro- 
zen, or thrown away within a 36 -hour period. 
Usually he doesn't keep food over 24 hours. 
According to him, he sees no sense in taking 
chances on serving spoiled food. 

Williams also composes his own menus, 
which the dietician checks each day for color 
combinations as well as to see whether there 
is a balanced diet offered. Any student, 
says Williams, can get a balanced diet if he 
so desires . 

Even the improvements planned and put into 
effect have created dissension among the stu- 
dents. Some for instance are displeased 
about the type of music being piped in. 
Others consider new cafeteria chairs a need- 
less expense. 

James Allen, Centenary comptroller, in 
another interview, spoke of plans for a com- 
mittee to discuss the cafeteria situation in 
hopes of keeping complaints in control. 

If they were not required to have meal 
tickets said Allen, few would eat at the 
cafeteria; it would be difficult to get 
anyone to accept a contract to serve food. 
Also, the more students that have meal tic- 
kets, the more the fixed costs are divided. 
This "have to eat here" provision, he said, 
is one of the reasons people always feel 
dissatisfied.

EDITORIAL 

ODDS AND ENDS 

The Senate has hired a student secretary 
to take minutes at meetings , handle corres- 
pondence, etc. At first glance this appears 
to be a luxury, but questioning of Senate 
officers has indicated there is a real need 
for secretarial help due to Vice President 
Sandy Bogucki 's heavy schedule and President 
Rick Clark's admitted lack of command over 
typewriters . As a step toward solving 
similar future problems, one CONGLOMERATE 
staffer has suggested, tongue-in-cheek , 
that the Freshman Senatorial candidates 
list their typing and shorthand speeds in 
their qualifications. 

Congratulations to the Student Senate 
and designer Pat Norton for the Big Blue 
Calendar of the Semester . It looks to be 
more accurate and appealing than the trouble- 
some one on our Last Page. 

This is, of course, Be Kind to the 
Senate Week, in honor of the discovery of 
the fact that Senate members control the 
student votes on the Committee on Student 
Life, which has control over the CONGLOMERATE . 
Never rankle your boss, gang'. 

Finally, a word to everyone active in 
the dorm hours fuss: keep a perspective. 
There are many more issues to raise a ruckus 
about. Look aroand you. Voters on campus 
and off are apathetic, grading systems are 
under attack, the Honor Court lacks support, 
and so on. Dorm rights, fine, but don't 
quit there. You're off to a good start. -TLC

MORT GETS VERSE 

To the Editor: 

Dr. Allen is my watchdop; I shall not 
visit. 

He maketh me to lie down in empty dorm 
rooms-, he babyeth me beside the Shining 
Silver Bayou. 

He protecteth my morals: he pusheth me 
down the paths of righteousness for his 
trustess ' sake. 

Yea, though I walk through the lobby of 
the den of iniquity, I will fear no evil, for 
he is guiding me; his board and his staff 
they protect me. 

He preparest a room for me in the absence 
of mine ladyfriends: he annointest my head 
with condescension; my anger boileth over. 

Surely goodness and purity shall follow 
me all the days of my Centenary sojourn; and 
I will dwell in the house of the menfolk for 
ever, and alone. 

Mort D. Arthur 
MESSAGE FROM DAVID LAWRENCE 

To the Editor: 

The word intercourse brings to mind 
two meanings: Sexual intercourse and 
social intercourse. The first, easily 
accomplished in two hours is merely 
scheduled by President Allen's dorm 
hour action: the other is severely 
restricted if not prohibited.

WEEKLY MAIL 



TO THE FACULTY 

To the Faculty: 

Our views concerning why last 
years ' visitation hours should be 
reinstated have been presented 
elsewhere. We are certain that our 
proposal is justified. A further 
point deserves emphasis. 

We are having difficulty studying 
this semester. Our rights have been 
attacked, and we are impelled to 
defend them. We have been involved 
in mass rallies, committee meeting, 
bull sessions, and letter-writing. 
These are time-consuming. We would 
prefer to read. 

Sad it is that we as scholars 
must spend our time crusading for 
a cause that has already proved 
successful. But do this we must. 
And do this we shall.

CENTENARY MAKES IT! 

To the Editor: 

We would like to thank Dr. Allen for exer- 
cisinp his nresidential nowers throuqh the 
limitation of onnosite sex visitation within

college careers the students nf this carnnus 
are exercisinp their voices as one. Apathy 
has dissinated. Tlje student union exists

HER PARENTS TAKE A STAND 



To the Editor: 

It appears to me that in the 
present debate over open dorm 
visitation one group involved has 
been overlooked. 

We have heard from President 
Allen and the report from his summer 
meeting with the parents who disap- 
prove of inter-dorm visitation, 
and we have heard the voices of 
students who almost unanimously 
support more liberal dorm hours. 

We have not, however, heard from 
those parents who were shocked and 
angered at the President's decision 
to take away previous privileges and 
restrict the dorm visitation hours. 
I would like to speak now in behalf 
of my parents and many others I know 
that stand behind the rights of the 
students . 

My parents feel that college is more 
than just a place to receive an educa- 
tion. They believe it is an essential 
step in my maturing process, a place 
where I make my own decisions and begin 
to exercise my rights as a young adult. 

Because my parents view me as a 
mature young adult and treat me accor- 
dingly, they resent the college I at- 
tend treating me as a child by placing 
unnecessary restrictions on my actions. 
This denies me the chance to make my 
own decisions and this defeats a 
main purpose of college life. 

To President Allen and the Trus- 
tees, I say that there are parents who 
feel so strongly in moreTiberal 
student rights that they will send 
their sons and daughters to other 
colleges where they are treated as 
adults. Thus, Centenary once again 
will lose students. 

To the students whose parents stand 
behind you, I ask that each of you have 
your parents write to President Allen, 
as mine have, voicing their opinions 
and supporting us as mature young 
adults.

CONSPIRACY THEORY 

To the Editor: 

When it is an expression of the politi- 
cal right wing, a lot of us are contemptu- 
ous of the conspiracy theory of history. 
I should have doubted that Tom Guerin was 
at home on that wing, but he doesn't have 
any trouble seeing sinister design in ad- 
ministrative action, particularly when he 
is entirely ignorant of the facts. 

He has no idea how far-sighted this ad- 
ministration is! We laid the foundation 
for this latest niece of diabolism at least 
four or five years ago: it has been at 
least that long since we have held a 
September Faculty meeting. And that, in 
turn, was the reason for the answer when 
we were asked about the meeting --with 
no indication by the questioner what the 
concern was about. 

However, as soon as the Committee on 
Student Life made its decision, Rick Clark 
came to see me about the Faculty meeting; 
and I immediately consulted President 
Allen about a called special meeting of the 
^acuity. He. agreed, and the call went out 
within 24 hours . The special meeting is 
scheduled for September 22, which, unless 
the petition is already over-ripe, is hardly 
tine enough for it to rot. 

Yours very sincerely, 
T. N. Marsh 
Dean of the College 

Tom Guerin replies: 

I refuse to let "good ol' Centenary" 
strike again. 

Right wing, left wing, big deal, but 
the thing that provoked me was the fact 
that there was not to be a faculty meeting 
in September this year, whereas I have 
always understood that there was a faculty 
meeting each month when school was in ses- 
sion. Therefore it appeared that there was 
a change taking place. 

Now Dean Marsh has stated that the change 
actually took place "at least four or five 
years ago." He continues by saying that "it 
has been at least that long since we have 
held a September Faculty meeting ." This 
statement did not sit well at all with me, 
so I undertook to find out the facts. 

After asking three faculty members if 
they remembered September Faculty meetings 
in the last few years and receiving affirm-

ative answers, I checked further. The re- 
sults were as follows: 

1. From letter from Marsh to Faculty, 
dated 13, 1971: "For the annual reason (the 
fall meeting of the Board of Directors of 
SCUU) it is necessary to schedule the Sep- 
tember meeting of the faculty on the fourth, 
rather than the third, Monday. It will be 
held at 4:30 p.m., Monday, September 27..." 

2. In September 1970, the faculty met on 
September 28. 

3. In September 1969, a special, called 
meeting was held on September 11; the next 
meeting was on October 20. 

4. In 1968, the only September meeting 
was the Pre-Registration Conference on Sep- 
tember 6. 

I hesitate to say that "he is entirely 
ignorant of the facts," because if Dean 
Marsh doesn't know what is going on in the 
faculty, we're in worse shape than I thought. 
But enough on this side issue. Let's get 
back to President Allen's right, better yet 
justification for his stand. 

Yours for a better community , 

Tom Guerin 

Editor's Note: That date"13, 1971" is 
printed as written in Tom's reply. ' 

Bean Marsh, after hearing Tom's reply 
over the telephone, decided not to under- 
take further rebuttal, stating that his 
arguments were adequately covered in his 
above letter. 




MEMO FROM PAM SARGENT 

To the Student Life Committee: 

The following are many of the reasons 
that ooen visitation is necessary on the 
Centenary College campus : 

1. Shreveport is not New York: i.e., 
the places where people could go on dates 
close relatively early. 

2. Most of the aforementioned places 
are quite a distance from the campus, and 
not everyone has access to a car. 

3. Students cannot sit in many areas 

of the campus and talk. Such areas as Crumley 
Gardens are dangerous to both sexes. 

4. The Student Union Building is out as 
a prospective gathering spot: it closes at 
10:00 p.m. every night, much the same as most 
of Shreveport. 

5. The Library, too, is out for this and 
other reasons. It is, of course, supposed 

to be a place of study. It may be that, but 
it is also one of the biggest partying places 
on campus. There is generally too much noise, 
or quiet, for it to be a conversation spot. 
It studying is the goal, the Library falls 
down here both for its high noise level and the 
extremely small number os study rooms . 

6. The lobbies of the dorm are general- 
ly filled with transient, noisy people, not 
to mention televisions and oianos. • 

These reasons boil down to the simple 
fact that on the Centenary campus it is not 
really feasible to try to study or talk quiet- 
ly, with a modicum of privacy, anywhere else 
than in the rooms. And the room is not just 
the "bedroom" as was stated in Dr. Allen's 
letter. His own rulebook, Gentlemanly 
Speaking , states that the student's 
room is : 

"The purpose of the residence hall 
is to provide comfortable living ac- 
comodations for students while in 
residence or the Centenary campus. 
The residence hall is more than a 
place to sleep . It should be the" 
center of activities for study, per - 
sonal living, and group living ..." 

With that paragraph it seems 
that even the College administration 
realizes that a student's room is 
bedroom, admittedly, but above and 
beyond that his study room, sometimes 
kitchen, bull session room, record- 
listening room, date room, and many 
more. 

Open visitation is not just a 
political issue with the students. 
The need is clear for such a policy. 
However, it can only work with the 
hours which were in effect last semester. 
The present 3-5 system is useless: 
everything is open, the room is not 
in such demand. 3-10 is basically 
just as useless. The need is the 
evenings throughout the week, when 
nothing else is open or accessible. 

Considering the above statements , 
then, I feel that the heed for this 
policy is quite clear, and petition 
that those in position to re-institute 
last semester's hour do so. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Pam Sargent

MISSIVE FROM RICK CLARK 

Presented to Committee on Student Life: 
The Need: 

There is no place to go on campus 
to interact socially with members of 
the opposite sex, after 10:30 p.m. 
To Supnort Our Need: 
A petition with over 3S0 names. 
Emory and SHJ Cboth Methodist) 
have open visitation. 

The students are very offended at 
Dr. Allen's choice of words in his 
summer letter. 

The visitation hours of last spring 
were apparently workable - as per Dean 
Miller, there was only 5-6 cases of a 
violation. 

On the housing contract, 901 of 
the male students' parents approved 
visitation; female, 651 (majority 
freshmen) . 
Dr. Allen, in changing the hours, 
was working to please a constituency, 
the parents . His parents ' hours make 
for happy parents and unhappy students ! 
Soon, we have no students.

Student Senate President 

THAT DORM CONTROVERSY 

Dear Teachers : 

Why should there be opposite sex visitation 
in the dormitories? The answer is simple; 
people learn from people. 

I can honestly say that the most exciting 
and productive moments of my college career 
have been in small private groups gathered 
outside the classroom. 

Any good professor (and Centenary has many) 
knows that his job is to arouse and stimulate, 
not just to teach. A properly guided and re- 
sponsible student works outside of class read- 
ing materials and talking with other students 
to gain new ideas and concepts. In any small 
group of students there may be people of 
different races, different nationalities, and 
different sexes . 

Unfortunately, existing facilities such as 
public lobbies, wet grass, and local bar 
lounges seldom stimulate the intellectual mind. 
A much more suitable place is the dorm room 
(combination sitting, study, and bed room). 
This room is well-lighted, quiet, comfortable, 
and semi -private. It affords the students 
a conducive atmosphere to relate to one 
another in natural home -like surroundings. 
After four short years the student must 
return to the "outside world" and assume an 
enlightened and responsible position in 
society. During the learning experience of 
college a student must leam responsibility; 
responsibility learned from trust. 

What good is a Centenary degree if the 
graduate does not have responsibility? 

Gentlemanly Speaking says it another way 
on page 29: 

Centenary College is dedicated to the 
proposition that personal responsibil- 
ity is one of several characteristics 
necessary to a college learning 
experience . 
Therefore teachers, trust the students and 
return an important educational tool. Support 
dorm visitation. 

Paul D. Giessen 

WHERE'D THE FREEDOM GO? 
To the Editor: 

Last year I visited Centenary on 
the invitation of the admissions office. 
The school impressed me as being old, 
established, and rather scholarly, but 
yet free, responsive to students, and 
slightly progressive. These were 
the reasons I chose to come to Cen- 
tenary. But a summer has passed since 
my visit, and I have arrived to find 
Centenary not the Centenary I visited. 
Still old, established and scholarly, 
Centenary seems to have lost its en- ' 
ticing aura of freedom and progressive- 
ness. I seriously doubt that establish- 
ment and scholasticism only are as 
effective a drawing card for new stu- 
dents as they would be combined with 
the fresh breeze of freedom that blew 
around this campus last year. 

John Wiggin, Jr. 



From Page One 

they write, pastors, all play a part in a 
students' decision, he said. 

"We hope to find all those points 
of natural contact that a student has 
with a school like Centenary," especial- 
ly since the former main method — 
contact through the secondary school 
— is becoming increasingly difficult. 
"We're going to be talking with the 
directors of youth in the Methodist 
churches in the are a... We 're going to 
be talking with all of our alumni in 
the area. We're gonna be talking with 
parents of freshmen who came this year... 
We've asked all freshmen to give us 
three names of their friends that 
think might like to know something about 
a school like Centenary." Guidance 
counselors and PTAs, too, will occas- 
sionally be contracted. These "natural 
contacts" will and must be utilized, 
he explained, because no more than 
10% of the student body consists of 
students who are "sold" just by a 
single meeting with a school represen- 
tative . 

Alumni wil be utilized, in certain 
cases and where they are agreeable, 
to visit potential Gents and their 
families , perhaps five prospects for 
each alum. 

STUDENT RECRUITERS 

Nor will present students at Centenary 
be left forgotten. While it is unfor- 
seeable how much of his plan can be 
put into effect this year, Mr. Levingston 
has plans to eventually recruit student 
volunteers — and only those who wish 
to serve — who will be effective 
Centenary representatives to travel 
with one or another Admissions staff 
members to area schools for one -day 
trips not involving great amounts of 
time or money as recruiters. 

Another possibility is a writing 
campaign — students writing to one 
or two potential Gentlemen from their 
own geographical region to encourage 
them to visit the school and find out 
about us that way. He is also consider- 
ing a "telephone marathon" to show 
prospective Centenary students that 
we care, to "personify the college." 

In line with my remarks about 'Wo 
brag, just fact," Mr- Levingston has 
decreed the inauguration of a "no bull" 
policy: from now on, Centenary College 
will be presented for what it is. This 
is also, he said, to improve Centenary's 
less-than-satisfactory retention rate. 
'The Admissions office would bring in 
400 new ones a year, and you lose two 
hundred by the sophomore year." 

A main ingredient in this recipe, 
he stressed, was bringing students on 
campus for a first-hand view. High 
School Day will be continued this year, 
with' some 250-300 students here for a 
weekend. Some 75 to 801 of those who 
visit our campus come to Centenary, 
he said. Gents tend to be friendly 
and frank to visitors, he noted, going 
out of their way to help. He mentioned 
the 'rescue' of an English visitor by 
the Big Riggers . 

f^ONEY 

We then got down to a subject which 
is frequently discussed these days, 
both at Centenary and about the country- 
side: money. Does the Admissions 
office have enough? Mr. Levingston 
thinks so, even with a 25-304 cut, 
mainly because the office intends to 
be a better steward of their funds. 
Previously, he said, the office was 
reoeiving an abundance of money, 
including special funding, but not pro- 
ducing to match the investment. There- 
fore the cut really doesn't concern him, 
at least not for this year, since this 
is basically a year for planting the 
seed of his program. 

If lack of funds in the office is 
not the problem — why is enrollment 
dropping? "I think there's all types 
of reasons that enrollment's been 
dropping," he told me. Part of the 
fault rests with the Admissions office, 
he said, but part is due to other factors. 



September IS, 1972 




This man's name Is Hank Thompson. He 
is a country singer. Why, he even appeared 
in Shreveport last weekend at a shopping 
center, and sang beer drinkin' songs. Just 
in case anyone asks. 



As for the problems with the office, 
one was that the staff was too wide- 
spread to be effective. Students com- 
plained that inquiries were answered 
too late — or not at all. 

Also, the illness of Financial Aid 
Director Mrs . Eubanks delayed vital 
assistance to students who were thus 
forced to go to other schools. But, 
also, the baby -boom has passed; the 
college-age population is declining. 
Community colleges are scooping up 
enormous amounts of students, too. 
And, also, students are not being 
herded into school by the draft as 
once they were. Add that to the fading 
of the "college mystique," and schools 
(especially non-public ones) all over 
the country are losing their prospect- 
pools . 

The optimum enrollment for Centen- 
ary, with our present faculty and 
facilities, is around 1200, he said, 
with 1000 of those full-time. But, 
he stressed, those (including myself, 
I must admit) who feel that increased 
enrollment will spell the end of Centen- 
ary's financial quandry are quite mistaken. 
The deficit we face is too large for an 
increased body count alone to evaporate. 

As noted before, students can help 
out in the admissions program. Until 
Mr. Levingston announces more formal 
plans, students should be writing 
friends and parents about Centenary. 
RIGIDITY-LAXITY CONTINUUM 

"Forgetting about minor details, 
such as losing your job," I asked him, 
"will the radical reduction of visi- 
tation hours hurt recruiting?" Not 
as a part of the total picture, he re- 
plied. The difficulty lies in present- 
ing the totality of Centenary and College 
life. Right now Centenary lies rough- 
ly in the middle of the rigidity-laxity 
continuum (exemplified by Oral Roberts 
University on the former end, some of 
the Northeastern schools on the lat- 
ter) and consequently does not exclude 
by alientation many students that 
schools to one extreme or the other 
might scare away. But the quality of 
Centenaryness is not easy to convey. 
That is his hardest task, and the one 
he is most determined to perform. 

As X began to talk with 
Mr. Levingston, I received 
definite vibrations of 
competence. As our talk 
progressed and at length 
concluded, that sense in- 
creased. I left the Ad- 
missions office fully con- 
fident that here was a 
man with the perceptivity 
to see what must be done, 
the brains' and imagination 
to know how to do it, the 
creativity to know how he 
wanted to go about it, and 
the skill to see that it 
got done . In an age when 
pride of workmanship is 
virtually passe' and the 
world's fas test -growing 
religion is the cult of 
. mediocrity, it was refresh- 
ing, comforting , and re- 
invigorating. As o\e who 
considers himself an 
artist, I felt I had met 
a brother in spirit.

Are you a "short sleeper" or a "long 
sleeper?" Researchers at the Boston state 
hospital sleep laboratory have found: "One's 
personality and life style appear to have 
an important relationship to the amount of 
sleep one needs." Short sleepers (six hours 
or less a night) tend to be energetic extro- 
verts who have few complaints about their 
health or the state of the world and often 
avoid problems by keeping busy. Long sleepers 
(nine hours or more a night) are generally 
creative and artistic introverts . They worry 
and complain a lot and use sleep as an escape 
from reality. Writing in the Archives of 
Psychiatry, Dr. Ernest Hartmann states that 
a person's sleep pattern "seems to be set 
in high school or college and continues 
through life."

The University of Washington has started 
proceedings to fire economics professor Jeff 
Morris, despite the face that he has over a 
year left on his contract. The stated reason 
for the dismissal action is that Dr. Morris 
gave every one of the 675 students in his 
introductory ecomonics class an "A." 

Defending his grading philosophy, Morris 



declared: "Grades destroy real incentive to 
learn, force students to treat their teachers 
as cops , and alienate students from each' other 
by fostering competition and discouraging 
cooperation." 

Many of Morris' former students have join 
ed him in his fight to keep his job. They 
vouch for his teaching ability and say that 
the mellow atmosphere in his classes was much 
more conducive to learning than the usual 
tension-filled and, for some, terror-stricken 
lecture hall.

Larry Murov, Meditator 



by Cherry Payne 

"Transcendental meditation is a natural 
spontaneous technique which allows each in- 
dividual to expand his conscious mind and 
improve all aspects of his life." This 
statement was taken from a poster telling 
of transcendental meditation as taught by 
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. The CONGLOMERATE 
interviewed Larry Mjrov, a representative 
of the Students' International Meditation 
Society, who is giving the introductory 
lecture next Wednesday, September 20 in 
Mickle Hall 114 at 7:30 pm. 

Transcendental meditation is a simple 
mental technique carried out for approxi- 
mately fifteen minutes at least twice daily. 
This technique allows the body to settle 
into a deep state of rest and simultane- 
ously releases various stresses and strains 
in the body. Those who practice meditation 
claim that through the release of these 
stresses, many psychosomatic diseases such 
as ulcers, asthma, and allergies are alle- 
viated if not eliminated altogether. 

When asked about the technique of medi- 
tation itself, Mr. Murov stated, "During 
meditation we take a thought and experience 
that thought on deeper and deeper levels 
until we bring our awareness to the source 
of thought, which is the source of all cre- 
ativity and intelligence. . .Transcendental 
meditation is not a withdrawal from life. 
We don't meditate because we can't cope with 
our situations. . .It makes us more efficient, 
more stable, it strengthens our personali- 
ties." Mr. Hirov emphasized that there is 
no concentration, as such, employed in the 
technique of meditation. This, he feels, is 
what makes transcendental meditation unique. 
"It just works on the natural tendency of 
the mind." One of the means of practicing 
transcendental meditation is by means of a 
mantra or a thought without meaning which . 
is expressed by means of a sound. One point 
which was re -emphasized throughout the inter- 
view is the simplicity of the technique. 

The Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is presently 
the leader and teacher of transcendental 
meditation movement. The Maharishi has been 
selected by his teacher to acquaint the world 
with this particular meditation technique. 
He himself is a Hindu monk. The method of 
meditation which he advocates comes from. the 
Vedic tradition, or the Vedasare, the an- 
cient scriptures of India. The Maharishi 
is the individual from whom the Beatles 
studied meditation. 

Perhaps one of the most desirable effects 
">f meditation is that it functions as a 
"normalizer." In other words, it releases 



the individual in such a manner as to allow 
him to perceive more in the world around 
him. Mr. Mirov stated that as one gains 
skill in the art of meditation, he learns to 
use more of his mind to its fullest poten- 
tial. Therefore, the meditator's percep- 
tion of his world is more sensitive. He is 
able to cope with his responsibilities with- 
out becoming as distressed as the non-medita- 
tor. Furthermore, Mr. Murov emphasized that 
he no longer feels a need for or gains plea- 
sure from alcohol or dope. In other words, 
he seems completely satisfied with his world 
as it is due to his greater awareness. 

Students ' International Meditation Society 
is a non-profit, educational organization. 
They are financed solely through "contribu- 
tions," but the cost of the course is $35 
for high school students, $45 for college 
students, and $7S for working adults. The 
course includes two free introductory les- 
sons a personal interview with the instruc- 
tor, and four days of instruction at 1 1/2 
hours daily. The meeting, once again, will 
be held Wednesday the 20th at 7:30 pm. : n 
Mickle 114. If you are at all interes..ed 
you are urged to attend.

Mr. Robert Buseick and Barbara Acker, two 
of the professors at the theatre, made them- 
selves available earlier this week so that 
I might talk to them about the upcoming sea- 
son at Majorie Lyons Playhouse. 

It is obvious that the upcoming plays 
were carefully selected with the theme of 
self examination in mind. "I think all the 
plays this year are dealing with self exam- 
ination and self discovery. . .the major 
protagonists' primary concern is self iden- 
tification," says Buseick. Barbara made the 
observation that these self -searching, ini- 
tiation type journeys are brought about in 
conjunction with "an illusion that has been 
smashed. . .or veiling ourselves to a blind 
spot we have." 

It would be worth the reader's while to 
cut out the schedule of plays and their pre- 
sentation dates found in this paper. The 
1972-73 season promises to be enlightening, 
educational, and entertaining. 

In addition to the regular schedule, the 
playhouse is participating in and/or antici- 
pating more events. For example, Take Me To 
You r Treasure will be touring towns~7n out~ 
lying areas of the state. We are able to do 
this through Jack Mulkey's Green-Gold Library 
System. Through a program such as this, 
children and adults who otherwise would not 
have the opportunity will experience live 
theater performances . 

The Imaginary Invalid will be touring to 
BatorTRouge and will be entered in the Fifth 
Annual American College Festival. 

The theater will be offering an interum 
course called "Theater as a Mirror of Social 
Issues." This course will include guest 
lecturers as well as a production. 

One last exciting prospect is that of the 
possibility of doing a program for retire- 
ment homes here in town. This is still in 
the planning stages, so if you have any 
ideas or if you are interested in this con- 
tact Mr. Buseick at the playhouse. 

Barbara Acker could use help sewing cos- 
tunes for Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are 
Dead. So if you sew, come to the playhouse 
on^aturday morn ing (9 : 00 - 1 2 : 00 ) . I f you 
can't sew, Bob Hickman will be more than 
happy to utilize your talents in finishing 
the set. If you would like to work on this 
production but are unable to come Saturday 
morning, or if you are interested in work- 
ing for a future show, call the playhouse.

THE CONGLOMERATE 



September 15, 1972 







Who is Python Lee Jackson? 

You probably heard it once or twice 
on the radio, said, "hey, it's a new 
Rod Stewart single," then shook your 
head in bafflement when the dee- jay 
announced it as Python Lee Jackson. 

Who? It was a question often enough 
to damage sales, and the record never 
entered the Top SO. I thought it was 
a fine single, Rod at his best with an 
unfamiliar band that could hold its 
own with Procol Harum, the Jeff Beck 
group, and other English heavies of a 
couple years ago. 

How it all came about is a matter 
not even hinted at by the record company 
and still somewhat confusing to me. 

Rod, I know, did a lot of bumming 
around between gigs with Steampacket, 
Jeff Beck and the Faces'. He did some 
singles on Columbia, Decca and Immediate. 
This material most likely dates from 
1970, for it was in November of that 
year that "In a Broken Dream" was orig- 
inally issued in England as one of 
the first releases on Miki Dallon's 
Youngblood label. Pallon was a respect- 
ed and brilliant producer, as well as 
a recording artist in his ovn right, 
and his production work with Python 
Lee Jackson leaves little to be desired. 
Python Lee Jackson is an Australian 
group with a long history. They dominated 
Australia's equivalent of the British R§B 
scene in 1964-5, and were known for 
their lead singer, a blind cripple named 
Jeff St . John who danced without the use 
of his legs on a stool in front of the 
band while singing a way that never 
failed to tear up the crowds. The group 
moved to England without him in 1966, 
expecting to make it big, but they didn't. 
By 1970 they had undergone some changes , 
picking up Tony Cahill from the Easy- 
beats and Gary Doyle from Brian Auger's 
Trinity. 

Then, somehow, Rod Stewart decided to 
cut three songs with them. 

Without that break it's unlikely this 
album would ever have been issued. I 
have no way of knowing, but I suspect 
the material on In a Broken Dream (GNP 
Crescendo 2066) was all recorded at the 
same time and has languished in the can 
the past two years only to be rescued 
by the title song's rediscovery. The 
playing on the Stewart cuts is more tight- 
ly structured and dramatic, and the con- 
trasting looseness of the other songs 
might be as much a consequence of passing 
time as of a possible reduction in pres- 
sure when Stewart wasn't singing. 

What does it matter, anyway? People 
will buy this for Rod Stewart, even though 
he sings only three numbers. The title 
song alone , as the old saw goes , makes 
this a worthwhile purchase. Rod's voice 
is a controlled cry of pain matched perfect- 
ly by the poignant wailing of guitar and or- 
gan. David ftantgomery, one of the three 
surviving Python Lee Jackson originals, 
is a fine drunim'e"Y al-m»&t,in a class with 
r, and on the whole I think 
that if Stewart had stuck with this group 
instead of joining the Small Faces, the 
results would have compared favorably. 
His other p on number is 

n 1 Fine," other wise known as "Cloud 
of Temptation fame. Rod's fascination 
further justified with this 
soulful outing, and his attempt at the 
es of "How Blue can

Man" single, "Boogie Woogie Joe" is a 
rocker in the Jerry Lee Lewis. vein, and 
it's handled nicely, without pretense or 
overkill. 'Turn the Music Down" uses 
some Chuck Berry changes to make a 
statement about growing up with rock§roll, 
and it too is a success. The other ori- 
ginals remind me alternately of Elton John, 
Leon Russell , and various other currently 
popular makers of pleasant, nondescript 
rock music. 

Which means you can put this album up 
on the shelf next to all the other stars 
that never were, and take it down every 
so often when you want to hear a minor 
gem that's destined to be quickly forgotten.

A Story Of The New Age 

by Anna and Paul 

Many winters ago we sojourned a few 
weeks in southern Colorado with old friends 
who had rented an abandoned church for the 
winter. Our travelling companion, Aasha, 
nearing 2, would sleep with us up in the 
belfry and wake with us under the tom- 
lace-cobweb sunrise windows and dawn- 
lavender adobe walls. He'd sleep wrapped 
up in a beautiful blanket given us by an 
Indian lady. 

We used to take long walks at sunset 
as layers of deepening blue descended 
toward the rosey Sangre de Christo moun- 
tains. It was on one of those early winter 
evenings, as we emerged snugly bundled 
from the old church, that we first caught 
sicht of several motionless outlines hiph 
on a ride against the western sky. Perhaps 
they were apparitions. A direct glance 
and tney seemed to dissolve. 

But in our walk they must have trust- 
ed, or felt kinshin with the babe papoosed 
upon our back, for daily their numbers 
seemed to increase. But always they stayed 
distant--high in the silence with the chang- 
ing moon and the evening star. 

Only after many weeks did their sunset 
stations gradually start drawing closer to 
the valley. Only then could we discern that 
the mysterious creatures were wild goats of 
all sizes and descriptions, and that they 
were accompanied by human children girded 
in furs and wielding slender staffs. 

Such was our lives' Calling: for so 
we took it to be. Later that winter we 
drove our rusty pick-up back to New York to 
decamp forever from a catacomb in which we'd 
spent too many years . 

We raise goats now- -some of the finest 
Nubians, Alpines, and Angoras in the Republic 
of Colorado. Every year as the winter sol- 
stice approaches we take the one-year olds, 
does and billies both, up to the mountain 
meadows to join their wild brothers and 
sisters -- and thereby try to insure that 
the children will lack neither milk, me 
nor furs through the long winter. 

And have passed, many a

Leon Russell, Nitzinger 

Leaving Shreveport about 11 a.m. last 
Thursday, September 12, a group of Centenary 
students headed for Little Rock to hear the 
immortal Leon Russell, along with Nitzinger, 
a new group on the circuit. After pulling 
ourselves together 'in the nick o' time', 
we all made it out to the Big Bam, renamed 
Barton Coliseum (sarcastic comment) . 

The show started late, about 8:30, when 
Nitizinger finally arrived on stage. Nit- 
zinger is composed of four members: three 
males , and one outtasite female drummer (I 
think I was most impressed with her own spe- 
cial way of boogyin'). To me, Nitzinger 
was. nothing new, just another hardrock 
group. The members all had great ability 
and performed well musically and on the 
stage, but I think the hard stuff they 
played has gotten old. With the Blues, 
Nitzinger was a different group, playing 
with a totally different style and real 
emotion. 

Like all other hard rock groups, Nitzinger must 
leam to modify (should I say compromise?) its 
music. I cannot say how the group sounds on 
its debut album ("Nitzinger") -maybe what they 
played at Barton was their hardest stuff. They 

played it well. 

Then came Leon (Backstage, a KLAZ radio 
Jock said he knew Leon was there, but he wasn't 
sure Leon knew Leon was there) . Wild applause 
went up for the Tulsa longhair, and the show 
began. Leon went through about five hats ( on 
the head type) , throwing them out in the audi- 
ence as he sang, played piano and rocked on 
guitar (not all at once, of course). I wander- 
ed-about to check on the acoustics of the Barn. 
The results came as no surprise to me. Up 
front near the stage the sound was great, as 
usual, but I couldn't help pitying the 3,000 
people, that weren't up front. The acoustics 
were lousy in back, on the sides, and up in 
the stands. This is what prevented Leon Russell 
from living up to the high standards of his 
unique music. Pity the late arrivers and envy 
the early ones! 

Overall, his performance and music made 
"A lotta rock outta Little Rock" (a Russell 
quote) . Go and see this man live if you get 
the chance, but if the concert is being held 
at something like the Big Bam... get there 



early.

All I can say is that Shreveport and 
Centenary weren't ready for Proffit. More 
people were waiting to hear something like 
Grand Funk (wow) and not something like The 
Band, which Mason Profitt strongly resembled. 

The best thing to do at the concert was 
to pull yourself out of the super-hard (or 
the super-soft) stuff that you were used to and 
try to turn on to M.P.. I will admit that the 
first three songs reeked of cow pastures and 
'country', but the rest of their music improved 
as the concert progressed. 

'■Buffalo" was their "song of the night, 
reflecting the past and present of the Indian 
by blending two smooth voices with equally 
beautiful lyrics. "S Xickin' Music" was 
the best explication oT down -home music 1 
have heard yet. The dude (we never got their 
names) who played the banjo did a bang-up job, 
especially during "S. Kickin' Music." (I'm 
afraid I'll be censored...) 

With an unresponsive audience, Mason 
Proffit did perform its best (that could be 
expected) . It was a different type of P.roup 
with a different type of music- -type of music 
that may take a while to be appreciated, but 
until then it won't be too far out... far out... 
far out . . . far out . . .

Ungar vs. Stewart 

Science, despite its pretensions to 
ultimate serioosness , or even sanctity, 
is a game. 

Much as in the world of chess, there 
are dabblers, masters, and grand masters. 
(And there are, of course, kibitzers like 
me.) 

The rules are much more complex than, 
say, chess rules, and a game may last a 
decade or even a lifetime. Moves are ex- 
periments formalized into papers, although 
some grandmasters don't even do experiments 
except in their heads --they just present 
their moves on paper. Counter-moves are 
other papers , usually based on experiments . 
And for all these moves there are referees -- 
master scientists who decide whether a move 
is allowable or not, that is, whether or 
not a paper should be published. 

The object of the game is for a 
scientist to get an hypothesis accepted by 
the scientific community. Just as in chess, 
old games can be replayed and different 
results emerge; a theory can be scrapped and 
a new one accepted. The play is constantly 
shifting, and every theory, or even "law" 
(long accepted theory), is up for grabs -- 
to anyone who can win the game. 

A fine point in one of the many 
scientific games being played was published 
recently: a move with running commentary by 
the referee--a rare event in science. The 
referee actually got into the game with a 
counter move! Usually the referee is an 
anonymous part of the publishing process. 

But this referee, 27-year-old Waiter W. 
Stewart of the National Institute of Health 
in Bethesda, Maryland, thought that the 
move was so weird, and the game (the hypo- 
thesis) so important, that he just had to 
come out of the woodwork and say his piece. 

The move is "Isolation, Identification 
and Synthesis of a Specific-Behavior- Inducing 
Brain Peptide" by G. Ungar and P.M. "tesiderio 



of the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, 
Texas, and W. Parr of the University of 
Houston. It was published in Nature , July 25, 
1972; in the same issue is the counter-move : 
"Comments on the Chemistry of Scotophobia," 
by Walter Stewart. 

Now, Nature , a British weekly, prides 
itself on fast publication, usually within 
two months. They like to get the moves out 
when they're still hot in the scientific 
world- -not like that stodgy American weekly, 
Science . where six months is a more usual 
refereeing time, or like the hopelessly slow 
monthlies and quarterlies . But Ungar and 
company had to wait a year and a half! What 
was happening behind the scenes (or beneath 
the board)? 

This Scotophobin game began for Ungar 
when he reported in Nature (1968) that he had 
trained rats to avoid dark (which they usual- 
ly like) by shocking them when they went 
into the dark end of a box. Ungar also wrote 
that when he injected brain extracts from 
these trained rats into untrained rats , they 
too would avoid the dark. 

This was one of several similar reports 
throughout the sixties about other animals. 
James McConnell had startled the scientific 
world in 1962 by announcing that planarian 
worms could pick up maze learning by eating 
ma?e-trained worms. People said, "maybe worms 
can do it, but it won't work with higher 
animals." Soon, however, there were reports 
about r.ransfer-of-leaming through brain 
extracts in rats . But these experiments were 
very controversial ; some people tried to 
duplicate them and couldn't, others did 
duplicate them but not without ambiguity. 

Ungar added something new to the contro- 
versy because he thought the active ingredient 
in the transfer extract was a protein, while 
most of the others were saying RNA was most 
important . Of Course , both RNA and protein 
could be active--after all, RNA makes protein. 
But proteins are more stable than RNA outside 
the cell , and this was why Ungar favored 
protein.

Two years and 4000 rats later, Ungar was 
ready to make a new move- -a big one. He had 
isolated and identified the learning-trans- 
fer protein. That is, he had named all its 
amino acid building blocks and specified the 
order they came in: Serine, Aspartic acid, 
Aspargine, Aspargine, Glutamine, Glutamine, 
Glycine, Glycine, Lysine, Serine, Alanine, 
Gultamine, Glutamine, Glycine, Glycine, 
Tyrosine, and NH?. (Fifteen amino acids: 
not a long enough chain to call a protein- - 
it's peptide.) What's more, Ungar synthesized 
the peptide and when he injected it into 
naive rats they avoided the dark just as much 
as rats injected with purified extracts from 
rats trained Jto- avoid the dark. He called 
the peptide Scotophobin. from the Greek for 
"fear of the dark." 

Preliminary reports were leaked at 
scientific conferences , and these got into 
conference reports and into the newspapers. 
The big report was to be for Nature . As 
referee for the article, the magazine ap- 
pointed Walter Stewart, a chemist, and presum- 
ably neutral on the "memory -transfer" contro- 
versy. Stewart thought the report was sloppy, 
incomplete, and "more like false than true." 
He asked them to clear up certain ambiguities . 
He berated them for making mistakes in weigh- 
ing the amino acids. Ungar and Stewart wrote 
each other back and forth. They reached an 
impasse. Nature suggested publishing Ungar's 
piece along with Stewart's objections and a 
rebuttal from Ungar. The deal was accepted, 
and so we have our rare glimpse into this 
Scotophobin game. 

The real crux of the arguments is the 
purity of the isolated active substance. 
Stewart estimates up to 33% impurities on 
a molar ratio basis. Ungar counters that molar 
ratios are misleading and that the material 
went through six solvent systems and is un- 
likely to have impurities of more than a "few 
percent." Also, even Stewart agrees that "an 
erroneous weight will not affect the calcu- 
lated ratios of amino acids." Besides, Ungar 
adds that they have repeated the work with 
ever improving measuring devices and Scoto- 
phobin 's identity has stood up, while others 
have repeatedly confirmed the biological 
activity of the synthetic Scotophobin on un- 
trained rats. 

Looks like Ungar is ahead in the game. 
But what about the "reality" --memory trans- 
fered by molecule? What we do with that is 
an even more complicated (and serious) game. 

Randy Newman 
Pure and Simple 

by Poseidon 

Randy Newman is a unique artist whose work 
has, for the most part, gone unnoticed by 
the public. Randy Newman's biggest admirers 
have always been other musicians, many of 
whom have recorded some of his compositions. 
You may recall that "Mama Told Me Not To 
Come," written by Newman and appearing on 
the Live album, was recorded by a big name 
"pop" group and was a number one hit across 
the nation. 

This record, Randy's third for Reprise, 
contains various types of songs that are all 
distinctly Newman. There are amusingly funny 
songs such as 'Tickle Me" and "Maybe I'm 
Doing It Wrong." On the other hand, "So 
Long Dad" and "Living Without You" are 
sentimental numbers which, if you are highly 
emotional, may cause you to shed a tear or 
two. For those of you who are looking for 
something of a social commentary, Newman 
offers "Yellow Man" and "Lonely At The Top." 

The album was recorded live at The Bitter 
End, a small nightclub in the East Village. 
Randy Newman is at his best playing for a 
small audience and creates an atmosphere that 
is comparable to an informal get together 
of friends in somebody's living room. He 
communicates freely with the audience and 
they with him. He is not the type of per- 
former you will see at huge, impersonal 
Halls like Madison Square Garden or the 
Snectrum. 

Randy sings and accompanies himself on 
the piano. No gimmicks, no devices, no 
64-track tape machines. Pure unadulterated 
and simple is the way he orefers to keep 
his music. With everyone else becoming 
more and more comolex, it's nice to listen 
to Randy Newman. The fourteen songs on this 
album provide a refreshing listening 
experience .

Gents' Schedule Highly-Ranked 



by John Hardt 

A common subject of discussion among 
college fans is the relative difficulty of 
various teams ' schedules . In fact , I par- 
ticipated in such a discussion this week. 
With this in mind, I was quite interested to 
find a ranking of the major college bas- 
ketball teams on the basis of the "tough- 
ness" of their schedules. Published in 
the Basketball News , these rankings, which 
included 189 teams , were based on last 
season's schedules. 

I was particularly interested in Cen- 
tenary's position in these rankings. The 
"experts" found that the Gents played the 
80th toughest schedule in the nation last 
year. At first I did not think that was 
so great, but then I examined the rankings 
a little closer. The Gents were only a 
few notches under such prestigious area 
schools as LSU and Vanderbilt. Ranked 
slightly under the Gents were such powers 
as Kentucky and perennial national cham- 
pion UCLA. That' is, the experts rated the 
Gents' schedule to be more dificult than 
the Bruins ' . 

In the top twenty in national independent 
schools , the Gents f schedule also rates highly 
compared to other national powers of last 
year. In fact, thirteen of the nation's top 



Here are the answers to last week's puzzle. 
If anyone is interested in having the cross- 
word as a regular feature, let us know. 



twenty- five teams played weaker schedules 
than the Gents. USL's schedule ranked 183rd, 
and Oral Roberts' was rated 185th. Hawaii's 
schedule was ranked 148th. This does not 
say that the Gents were a better team than 
these teams , only that the Gents played a 
tougher schedule. 

In comparison with the schedule ran- 
kings of the area's conferences, the Gents' 
schedule also compares favorably. The 
Gents' schedule was ranked higher than 
that of all eight members of the South- 
west Conference. It was also higher than 
the average ranking of the teams in the 
Southeastern Conference. 

Also, the rankings found that the At- 
lantic Coast Conference teams played by 
far the roughest schedules in the nation. 
The other top five conferences were the 
Pacific-Eight, the Big Ten, the Ivy 
League, and the Missouri Valley. 

In general , the study showed that 
many of the major national powers play 
fairly weak schedules. One can only 
speculate if these teams would be such 
powers if they played tougher schedules. 

I am not sure what these rankings mean, 
maybe nothing, but they were interesting 
at any rate. To me, they do confirm the 
strength of the Centenary basketball uro- 
gram.

Football Begins Monday 



by Andy Carlton 

Centenary intramural flag football be- 
gins this week with a full slate of games. 
Once again the Sigs will be out to defend 
their title. They are supported this year 
by a fine pledge class and of course the 
returning lettermen. Other fine teams en- 
tered this year are the Homes (mostly 
members of the baseball team), Kappa 
Alpha, Theti Chi, and TKE I § II. The 
faculty is once again entering intra- 
mural football and could be contenders 
with fine men such as Mark McMurry, Dick 
Skarsten, and Dr. Charles Lowery. The 
field will be rounded out by Cossa's 
Robbers . 

The Homes are led this year by Don 
Birklebach, Perry Peyton, and Dan Sparrow. 
Kappa Alpha could be tough this year with 
such players as Artie Geary, Henry Gordon, 
and Rocky Ruello. This year the TKE's 
will be quarterbacked by Jeff Hendricks 
and supported by Galen Sanders and Com- 
pany. The league will last about four 
weeks with the playoffs following immed- 
iately afterward. The top four teams will 
enter the playoffs on the basis of their 
league records . 

Here is the schedule for the opening

THE CONGLOMERATE 



Page Eleven 




by Cherry Payne 

Imagine yourself 14,000 feet above sea 
level, suspended from a rope, swinging gayly 
down a vertical rock face and yodelling. 
Admittedly, this requires a variety of skills 
such as the ability of a monkey, sometimes 
super-human strength and a prerequisite of at 
least some insanity. And who has mastered all 
of these skills quite successfully? Why, 
Dr. Stan Taylor of the Chemistry Department 
(Yes, he can even yodel). For underneath 
Dr. Taylor's calm, be-spectacled professorial 
countenance one finds that "The Dragon's" idea 
of a good time is to throw twenty to forty 
pounds upon his back and storm off to subject 
himself to the rigors of mountain climbing. 

Dr. Taylor has been interested in mountain- 
eering since a college student at Iowa State. 
He is presently a member of Iowa Mountaineers 
an organization located at the University of ' 
Iowa under the leadership of John Ebert. The 
club sponsors trips throughout Alaska, Canada 
and the "Lower 48," in addition to one foreign 
trip during the summer. 

Dr. Taylor related that he finds great 
satisfaction in the sport of climbing. First 
of all, there is the basic desire to see if 
one can get to the top. Furthermore, the 
goal of mountain climbing is relatively simple 
in that those climbing know exactly what they 
want to do (get to the top). The problem, and 
perhaps the real challenge Dresented here is 
the overcoming of one's own self-doubts and un- 
necessary fears. For while mountaineering does 
have its "difficult" moments, the danger level 
is simply not as bad as it seems. Most people 
Dr. Taylor noted, are only aware of that which' 
they have seen of climber from a distance 



which, oftetimes makes climbing look much worse 
than it is in reality. The human fly techniques, 
of which everyone is familiar, are executed 
only with the protection of ropes, slings, ca- 
rabiners and related equipment. The final, and 
perhaps, most simple challenge of climbing is 
getting to the top without getting lost. Dr. 
Taylor noted that oftentimes it is quite easy 
to lose one's perspective from the slopes of 
a mountain and admitted that he has been on climb 
where the leader has had his nose stuck in a 
book the entire way trying to find the proper 
route to the peak. Perhaps the opposite extreme 
is when a leader has taken a picture postcard of 
the mountain at hand and utilized it to reach 






the neak. 

Dr. Taylor has many mountains to his credit, 
in the United States , Canada and Europe . Among 
them are Symmetry Spire, Teewinot, Cloud Veil 
Dome, South Teton and Nezperce in the Grand 
Tetons, Long's Peak, Colorado (the locale of 
his honeymoon) Maliguin Lake, Canada (a snow 
climb) and Mt. Whitney, the tallest mountain 
in the Continental United States (14,500 feel 
Those in Europe include the Dolemites in North 
Italy, Gross Glockner, the highest peak in 
Austria (3100 meters or approximately 12,000 
feet), Zugspitze, the tallest in Germany and 
the ever famous Matterhom at 14,701 feet. 

The scale of difficulty in climbing ranges 
from 1 through 5.11. A3 point climb is one 
in which the climber doesn't need his hands to 
negociate. 4 point consists of using hands 
but no ropes while anywhere in the 5 point range 
consists of the use of ropes, petons and other 
equipment. With much difficulty I was able to 
get Pr. Taylor to admit he has made 5.8 climDS, 
but when asked what the point value of his 
most difficult climb was, he refused to com- 
ment ( I suspect due to his modesty) . 

Dr. Taylor's advice to those starting out 

■ in the sport is to take time to build technique 
and experience. He emphasizes the need for 
practice with equipment to master procedures 
and methods. Finally, he cautions the novice 

I not to rush into climbing without proper physical 
preparation (that is, adjusting oneself to the 
high altitudes, temperatures and carrying ade- 
quate clothing) . 

Rumor has it that mountaineering is picking 
up at Centenary and that Dr. Taylor has managed 
to coax a few students and at least one faculty 
member down the south wall of Mickle Hall. 
When asked why he cared to suspend himself 
from a rope and descend Mickle instead of using 
the elevator, one student purportedly stated, 
"Because its there."

Next Wfeekend 



If you are looking for something 
to do on a Saturday afternoon in 
Shreveoort, then why not plan on at- 
tending the All -Campus Weekend on 
Sept. 22-23. 

With the event only one week away, 
exciting plans are already being final- 
ized. Sophomore Senator Jeff Hendricks 
is investigating the possiblity of 
renting a roller rink from 8-12 p.m. 
on Friday night. However, prior to 
the proposed skating party the annual 
beer and bicycle race will be held at 
4:00 p.m. on Fraternity Row. 

On Saturday morning students, 
faculty, and the administration will 
be un "bright and early" to participate 
in the All --Campus Cleanup. The activite: 
will begin at 8:30 a.m., orange juice 
and donuts will be served at 10:15 a.m., 
and the campaign will conclude around 
noon. Three $10 cash prizes will be 
offered in various cleanup catergories , 
such as "the most immaculate area." 

Later in the day Sonhomore Senator 
Cindy Yeast will be in charge of the 
annual tug-of-war over the mud, the 
couples-only banana eating contest, 
and a powder-puff football gane. While 
these activites are going on, Open Ear 
will be holding an auction in Haynes 
Gym. 

The fun-filled weekend will be con- 
cluded with the showing of the science 
fiction film 'The Illustrated Man." 
Ice cream will also be served Saturday 
night .

How Will Laissez-Faire? 



by Jeff Daiell 

There's a land that is fairer than day. 
And by faith we can see it afar, 
For our Father waits over the way, 
To prepare us a dwelling place there. 
— In the Sweet By-and-By 

"Every man," John Locke declared,"has 
a right to be secure in his life, health, 
liberty and possessions." It was the duty 
of the State, he went on, solely to ensure 
that right, and to do so without itself 
infringing thereupon. 

Believing that no State today lives up 
to this ideal, a group of Libertarians 
have established -- what else -- their 
own State, the Republic of Minerva, some 
35 square miles of coral atop two reefs 
in the South Pacific. 

This is no shovel -and-sandbucket 
project, however, though it might seem 
so from the above. As a matter of fact, 
it would appear that Ocean Life Research 
Foundation, hoisters of the blue and 
gold torch which is the Minervan flag, 
is virtually without a limit on its funds. 

The motive behind Minerva is simple, 
basic, fundamental, and straightforward: 
a regard for the inalienable rights of 
the individual. The Minervan government 
will be restricted to preventing violence 
and fraud, and forbidden to engage in 
such acts (taxation, repression, conscrip- 
tion) as are the governmental equivalents 
thereof. The word of the day is laissez- 
faire; the market at its freest. The 
government will consist of a military 
force, a domestic police contingent, and 
courts and penal system. 

Planners of the new Republic envision 
a capital, Sea City, of some 30,000 
people, designed both as a residential 
city and as a tourist attraction. 
Immigration into the island will be 
granted on philosophical-ideological 
grounds. 

Already the Minervans have caused a 
stir. Neighboring nations are almost 
unanimous in their displeasure and -- 
might as well say it -- ridicule of the 
new nation, although one country, a small 
sultanate in the Malay Archipelago, has 
invited diplomatic relations. 

Obviously, the Republic of Minerva is 
an experiment -- an experiment in the 
practice of what other lands (ours 
included, sadly) merely preach: the 
sovereign rights of Man. The economists 
and ideologues of the reactionary Left 
have for years sniffed at laissez-faire 
Libertarianism as "impractical." The 
economists and ideologues of the progres- 
sive Right have for the same period 
defended it as practicably as well as 
morally superior to statism. It has 
fallen -- by their own choice as self- 
directed individuals -- to the citizens 
of Minerva to determine, in the first 
true test, just which camp was correct. 
Alea jacta est . . . the die is cast.

Thievery on Campus 



Christ, Commies, and Cash 



by Taylor Caffery 



Because it was a hot, muggy 
September evening in Shreveport, 
many neoDle remained outside the 
poorly ventilated high school 
auditorium, waiting for the 
singers and speaker to appear 
onstage. Shreveport had seen 
countless similar meetings in 
earlier years, when Huey Long's 
inspired political oratory 
would draw huge, sweating crowds 
of packed people who would brave 
the heat, fan the sparse air to- 
ward their faces with handouts 
or racing bulletins, and cheer 
as Huey stepped onto the platform, 
loosening his Sears and Roebuck 
tie. 

The ghost of the great popu- 
list Governor may have been swelt- 
ering somewhere in the background 
Monday night, alongside the ghosts 
of Billy Sunday and Joe McCarthy, 
to join two hundred mortal Shreve- 
porters in awaiting the opening 
moments of a patriotic, anti- 
communist, fundamentalist rally 
featuring Billy James Hargis and 
His All -American Kids. 

The windows of the auditorium 
(Fair Park was built in neolithic 
pre-airconditioning days) opened 
wide, the crowd was ushered- in 
past hall tables featuring wares 
of the right-wing religious trade: 
records , tee shirts , bumper stick- 
ers , and books like Forced Busing : 
Immoral and Un-American , Satanism, 
and The Sinister Assault on the 
Family" ! Huey's ghost, had he 
been present, would have searched 
in vain for a swallow of hard 
liquor or, evqn better, a chance 
to fight or argue with a scoun- 
drelly opponent, because the 
mortal audience members were 
straight, sober, and in apparent 
general, if not complete, agree- 
ment with the featured speaker's 
views on Free Enterprise . Salvat- 



ion, the Virgin Birth, and Com- 
munist tyranny. 

Billy James Hargis, founder 
of the American Christian College 
in Tulsa and the Christian Cru- 
sade against Communism, and 
star of syndicated radio and 
television fundamentalist pro- 
grams , knew the audience was 
waiting for his show to begin 
as he stood in the stage wings 
Monday night answering questions 
for a ODNGLOMERATE interview. 
There was no hurry, it turned 
out, because the first hour of 



It's Here! 



It's here, it's here, it's here; it's 
here at last, my friends. The event 
you've all been waiting for has finally 
arrived. Step right up! Hurree, hurree, 
hurree! 

Yes, it's Centenary All-Campus Week- 
end, starting today at 3:30 on Frater- 
nity Row with the Annual Beer 'n' 
Bicycle Race, complete with prizes and 
open to all. Hurree, hurree, hurree! 

But it doesn't stop there, folks, 
no, it doesn't stop there. At 8:30 the 
fun shifts to the Interstate Skating 
Rink where Centenary students get to 
skate free (BYOB) . Just take 1-20 to 
Jewella, friends, then go right on 
Jewel la 1 and 1/2 blocks to Clayborn, 
but don't stop there folks, oh, no! 
The rink is behind the ol ' Westwood 
Center. Step right up! 

Then comes Saturday, friends. Open 
Ear is having an auction and you're 
all invited. It's in the nym, folks, 
it's in the gym. 

From 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. that 
very same day, it's All-Campus Clean- 
up time. Juice and coffeecake at 10, 
with prizes awarded in the Ampitheatre 
for best cleaner. Here's your chance to 
make a good-looking pick-tro, guys, so 
don't miss it! v 

At 2 p.m., friends, games and fun 
and mud in Hardin Field. Don't miss 
the sames and fun and mud. 

And then, and then at 8 p.m., 
friends, a movie. Ray Bradbury's 
The Illustrated Man makes a moving 
picture out ot tattooes, ice crean fran 
our good neighbors, Baskin-Robbins. 

All Campus -Weekend! Don't miss it, 
don't miss it friends. Step right 
up! Step right up! Hurree, hurree!! 



the show, yet to begin, featured 
only Hargis' college choir, The 
All -American Kids, along with a 
slide-show message about Ameri- 
can Christian College. 

Produced with a quality re- 
miniscent of high school skits 
of yesteryear, the All -American 
Kids ' segment began with the 
spotlight directed stage left 
in front of the closed curtain 
at a tan, well-groomed All- 
American boy tuning a 1930 's style 
console radio (the kind that used 
to broadcast news about Huey) . 
The curtains opened for the choir's 
first song, (Why, one wonders, was 
the 24 -member choir backed by a 
recording of a choir, played in- 
conspicuously?) Albert E. Brumley's 
1927 hit 'Turn Your Radio On," 
to reveal a large, nostalgic 
backdrop featuring a red, white 
and blue cottage nestled between 
tall country trees and a serene 
mountain lake, with a manicured 
yard punctuated by a huge orna- 
mental statue bearing the inscrip- 
tion "BJH/ACC" (Billy James Hargis/ 
American Christian College). The 
choir's entire program of religious 
and patriotic music was sung, in 
spirit, by that mountain lakeside, 
directed to a younger, happier 
America. 

Dr. Billy James Hargis, boast- 
ing an LL.D. degree from Bob Jones 
University, is described in promo- 
tional literature as an educator 
(as president of American Christian 
College, est. 1970), a missionary 
leader (as founder of the David 
Livingstone Missionary Foundation, 
with orphanages in Korea, India 
and Mexico, and leprosy villages in

THE CONGLOMERATE

STOR THIEF!! 

THIEVERY ON CAMPUS 

by Jeff Daiell 
"If ever I should leave you... it 
wouldn't be in summer..." just somehow 
wasn't in vogue this year as quite a few art- 
icles of personal and public property on 
the Centenary campus bid adieu to their 
owners with the aid of unknown- -and un- 
loved- -parties. 

To get the facts, I talked with the Col- 
lege's Comptroller, James Allen. 

Among the articles purloined were Dr. 
Beck's typewriter, featuring German char- 
acters (now who would need a machine like 
that? ) ; Dr. Pledger's typewriter, one of 
DrTBerton's calculators (two were orig- 
inally reported missing; one was subse- 
quently rediscovered after apparently having 
been merely misplaced) ; a cabinet section, 
antique, from the library attic (although 
that particular piece of furniture may have 
been pilfered earlier); the CONGLOMERATE'S 
photo enlarger (the unkindest cut of all, 
you dastardly knave, whoever you may be!) ; 
an ancient air conditioningwindow 

an ancient air conditioning window unit 
from Colonial ; and a color TV from the 
lobby of Rotary. Vandalized were coke 
machines in Hardin, Mickle, and Rotary, and, 
of course, the lobby of James Dorm suffer- 
ed an attack by some egg-throwing and drape- 
ripping blackguards. 

Since so much of the bethefted mater- 
ial was getting on in years, it has been im- 
possible to set a current cash value of the 
goods. Centenary carries no theft insur- 
ance ; such a program would be a bad bargain 
for the school, as the premiums would by all 
odds heavily outweigh the losses . 

Apparently, this filching is a recur- 
rent problem, but, this being Mr. Allen's 
second year only, he could not supply the 
CONGLOMERATE with details of past thievery. 

As for some of the problems in reducing 
or preventing theft, he listed the over- 
abundance of keys floating about the campus, 
not all of which carry either written, 
coded, or constructional prohibitions against 
reproduction. And, while there is really 
no way of determining it, it is possible that 
the school needs more than just one Secu- 
rity man on duty at the same time. Then, too, 
many people- -too many--are forgetful about 
locking up. 

Mr. Allen stressed, and stressed heav- 
ily, that the above-mentioned nefarious 
misdeeds were perpetrated over an extend- 
ed period of time; although a noncontex- 
tual perusal of the list may scare one into 
thinking that the College is an easy target 
for banditti, actually it is not. Even so, 
he is considering courses of actions. One 
is a daytime watchman for weekends, especial- 
ly summer weekends. He has other plans und- 
er advisement as well. 

Unfortunately, he noted, things could 
get worse before they get better. With crime 
in general rising, it seems only natural that 
attempts to victimize Gentland will increase 
as well. Seeing that those attempts prove 
futile and counterproductive is one of Mr. 
Allen's several duties, and he is this very 
moment mobilizing his resources to insure 
success . 

Visitation Halted at TCU 

Bob F. Neeb, director of residential 
living and housing at Texas Christian 
University in Fort Worth, has suspended 
dormitory visitation until further notice. 

The oral order affects all campus 
residential units, although only two 
dormitories were carrying out visitation 
procedures . 

In a telephone conversation with 
John C. Hunt ley, director of one of the 
dormitories, Neeb stated that a period 
of reevaluation was necessary to better 
coordinate the visitation program. He 
said freshmen and new students were in 
special need of orientation to University 
policy. 

Dormitory students, describing them- 
selves as perplexed by the sudden re- 
vocation of the standard visitation guide- 
lines, hawe written and submitted a new 
pronosal to administration officials. 




'He«*& S6&tt& 



The Louisiana State Police have estab- 
lished an Internal Affairs Section to pro- 
vide a central office concerned strictly 
with investigating complaints against 
officers and employees of the Division. 



The next Senate meeting will be at 
10:40 Thursday. Senate Prexy Rick Clark 
announces a new office, SUB room 206; new 
office hours (9-12 a.m. MWP) , and new 
advisor, Mr. Garvin. 



Southwestern Wine Festival is scheduled 
for the Covnention. Center October 1st from 
1 to 6 p.m. Admission is $1. 



Ronald E. Dean will be featured at the 
organ at this term's first Faculty Recital 
Tuesday the 26th at 8 p.m. in the Chapel. 



Everybody congratulate Patsy Searcy, 
Centenary freshman. She's won the annual 
Allums-Mims Scholarship granted by the 
Southern Literary Club for outstanding high 
school achievement and other academic honors 
as well as pleasantness and general good 
deeds. 

All girls interested in trying out 
for Pom-Pom/Cheerleaders, come to the 
Dome next "Tuesday, September 26 at the 
Break. There will be a meeting ex- 
plaining what is going on. This is not 
a tryout, just a meeting to get ready 
for the tryouts. 

Freshmen who took tests on August 26 
may come for intrepretations on October 
3rd and 10th at 10:40 a.m., Rm. 114 
Mickle Hall. 

Mrs. Harriet Turner, a candidate for 
the Caddo Parish School Board, will ten- 
tatively address the Centenary SLTA on 
Thursday, September 28 at 3:45 p.m. in 
room 02 of Mickle Hall. This former 
"Educator of the Year" has taught history 
at Fair Park High School and has served 
as a coordinator for the Shreveoort 
schools. At Thursday's meeting she will 
discuss some of the oroblems of a secon- 
dary education teacher in addition to her 
platform for the School Board Election. 



Med Library Available 



Mayo Drake, the Librarian for the L.S.U. 
Medicial School in Shreveport, has an- 
nounced that .the facilities of the Med 
School Library are open to Centenary stu- 
dents and faculty. On the basis of a oeriod 
of successful trial service last year, Mr. 
Drake has agreed to continue to provide 
library materials on medicine and related 
sciences to Centenary when the needed mat- 
erials are not available at Centenary Libr- 
ary. 

Access to these materials is through the 
regular interlibrary loan services provided 
by the Green Gold Library System. Centen- 
ary students and faculty may also go direct- 
ly to the Med School Library in search of 
the materials that they need. 

Except for materials in heavy use, the 
Med School Library will lend books and 
similar materials to holders of valid 

Centenary I.D. Cards. As an added conven- 
ience, books borrowed from the Med School 
Library may be returned to the Centenary 
Library for transmission to the Med School 
via the Green Gold Library System Book van. 

The Med School Library is located 
roughly on the site of old Fort Humbug. In 
more modern terminology, the address is the 
Basement of the Veterans Administration 
Hospital at 510 East Stoner, a delight- 
ful scenic location on the bluff that over- 
looks the Red River just east of Youree 
Drive. 



Yearbook Improvements 



by Marc Sargent 

When last year's YONCOPIN (the Cent- 
enary yearbook) rolled off the presses 
and into the hands of waiting Gents, 
there were voices raised in the land-- 
voices which claimed that the pictures were 
repetitive and that the volume lacked pro- 
fessional flair. After talking with last 
year's YONCOPIN Editor (who is Editor again 
this year), reasons for last year's short- 
comings and hopes for this year came 
through . 

Susan Bell told me that she felt her 
staff last year lacked the needed ex- 
perience and help required to cover Cent- 
enary events and personalities and trans- 
late it all into a really professional 
year book. 

However, she indicated that the out- 
look for this year's YONCOPIN is very good. 
This year the staff has the experience and 
the help to put a truly good publication 
into the hands of the student body. 

Naturally, neither Ms. Bell nor anyone 
else has any idea of what the YONCOPIN 
will contain, but she promises complete 
coverage of the year. So get ready, she 
admonished, for an excellent YONCOPIN. 



Teague Tours Europe 



William C. Teague, Adjunct professor 
of music here at Centenary, spent this 
summer touring Europe, where he played 
organ concerts in England, Germany, 
Austria, the Netherlands, and France. 

He gave three concerts in England 
including one at Westminster Abbey, site 
of British Coronations . Two Teague con- 
certs came in Belgium, including on on a 
national holiday when his audience included 
many municipal officials. 

Germany saw him give four concerts, in- 
cluding one utilizing an organ used by the 
great Bach himself. 

Two thousand people listened to Mr. 
Teague 's recital in Austria, and in Holland 
he performed one of his two concerts on the 
world's most famous organ, made in France 
in 1773. His biggest thrill was a concert 
before a packed crowd of 6,000 at France's 
Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris . 

There were difficulties, of course. 
Some of his organs were built before the 
introduction of black keys, a condition 
which necessitated special music. 

Mr. Teague 's tour was facilitated by 
the Annual Hemenway Grant to a Centenary 
faculty member for summer study. Details 
on the grant program are available from 
Dean Marsh. 



Dr. Schweitzer 



WILLSON LECTURER 



Dr. George K. Scliweitzer, Professor of 
Chemistry for the University of Tennessee, 
will be this semester's first speaker in the 
Willson Lecture Series Thursday, September 
28th, at 10:40 a.m. in the Chapel. 

Dr.- Schweitzer will lecture on "The 
Cosmic Drama", a theme reflecting an attempt 
to view Man in his environments from the 
perspectives of science, philosophy, and 
religion. 

Dr. Schweitzer, holder of a Phi Beta 
Kappa key, is no stranger to the lecture 
hall, having been a guest at over 300 col- 
leges and universities across the U.S.A. 
A specialist in photoelectron spectroscopy 
and molecular orbital theory, he lias been 
named Alumni Distinguished Service Pro- 
fessor of Chemistry at UT, and has authored 
over 100 papers concerned with inorganic 
and nuclear chemistry. 

Dr. Schweitzer is thus a man honored 
among his own, and represents a valuable 
addition to the Willson program.

Librarian Leaving 

Anne Trickett, the Acquisitions Librarian, 
has resigned effective September 30, because 
of the ill health of her mother. During 
her five years at the Centenary Library, 
Mrs . Trickett worked first as a reference 
assistant and since 1969, as the librarian 
in charge of library acquisitions and related 
financial records . Her work includes the 
checking of catalogs and the ordering of 
books requested by the faculty, students, and 
library staff. She also prenares the oay 
roll for student assistants at the Library. 
Mrs . Trickett completed her masters degree 
in library science at T.W.U. in Denton, 
Texas in the summer of 1971. In the words 
of President Allen, her departure from the 
Library is much regretted. 

The nresent Cataloguing Assistant, Ella 
Edwards, will succeed Mrs. Trickett at the 
acquisitions desk. Mrs. Edwards has been 
with the Lib rary since 1969. Her snecial 
interests include Louisiana history and 
a very active membership in the Bayou 
Chapter of the Ozark Society. She has been 
spending her recent summers at L.S.U. in 
Baton Rouge doing course work for a masters 
degree in library science, which she should 
comolete next year. Mrs. Edwards will contin- 
ue to be available on a regular schedule 
each week to assist students and faculty 
in the use of the Library.

Bob Hickman and Doug Wilson seemed to be 
quite ODtimistic when I discussed the up- 
coming programs and ideas for Rivertown(e) 
Players this year. Both see the organization 
as "a social outlet with a possibility for 
service." Bob, who is the technical director 
and stage manager for Rosencrantz and

ALEXANDERS PROTEST 



To the Editor: 

This letter is to officially orotest 
the policy of cancelling the opnosite 
sex visitation rules of 1971-72 and the 
subsequent institution of the current 
"arrangement," Those hours (12-12 Sun. 
thru Thurs., 12-2 Fri. f. Sat,) were 
achieved by the student body after much 
effort to assure that they followed the 
"channel of communication through which 
students should proceed in order to 
either establish or modify the expec- 
tations the College holds for them." 
("Gentlemanly Speaking" 1972-73, p. 25). 
The students did follow this channel 
from the groundroots level to President 
Allen's approval, as that former hotbed 
of apathy, Centenary College's student 
body, tried to concretely deal with one 
of those areas which affected enroll- 
ment and on which a vast majority of the

"LITTLE BOY BLUE 1 " PARODY 

To the Editor: 

The little old college is red with rurt, 
But sturdy and staunch it stands. 
The little old books are covered with dust; 
The librarians sit on their hands. 

Time was when the college was alive, 
And the students were passing fair; 
But that was the time before Allen arrived 
And climbed on the President's chair. 

"Now no late-visitation," blandly he said, 
"And don't you make any noise." 
So toddling off to his trundle bed, 
He dreamt of the Board and their Ploys. 

But when he awoke the students had gone, 

Beckoned by things that were new. 

Oh, the years are many, and the years are 

long, 

But Allen and Board are still true. 

Faithful to old ideals they stand, 
Each in his same old place, 
Awaiting the touch of a student's hand 
And the smile of a student's face. 

And they wonder as they stand there the 

long years through 

In the void of Hamilton Hall, 

If late-visitation and ideas that were new 

Were really so bad after all. 

Sincerely, 

llertha

students had expressed dissatisfaction. 
Alas, though, after one academic year, 
the faith of the students in this "chan- 
nel of communication" was shot down as 
these rules were arbitrarily discarded. 
Why? IVhat was the major factor in this 
wholesale removal of rules which proved 
workable and satisfying to those concerned. 

The current housing contract states 
that "no need for opposite sex visitation 
has been established." Certainly, the 
need must have been established before 
President Allen approved the original 
hours. Why, all of a sudden, does Cen- 
tenary College presume there is no 
need? The parents are certainly important 
members of this controversy. Why was 
their intelligence insulted by first al- 
lowing dorm visitation hours for one year 
and then, after the fact, asking them 
if they thought it was all right? Why 
did the hours listed for their approval 
not include the hours of 1971-72? Those 
original hours were a compromise between 
the students and the administration. 
Supposedly, the current arrangement is 
also a compromise, but in actuality all 
that has been compromised is the student's 
trust in the original agreement. 

The current visitation is the least 
workable "arrangement" imaginable. During 
the hours 3-5 p.m., that is one of the 
primary times that students are showering 
and dressing before going to dinner. 
What of those students who have labs to 
5 p.m.? They are denied even the limited 
arrangement offered now on those days . 
Under the current rules, the guests are 
required to sign in. Seldom in the men's 
dorms is a R.A. there at the desk. Some- 
times the sign-in sheet is there, sometimes 
it's on the floor and sometimes it's who 
knows where. On Labor Day the college 
treated the day as a holiday in almost 
every aspect. The library was closed 
during the day. At noon the SUB was 
still locked. However, there was no pro- 
vision made for a change in the visitation 
hours for that day to even those offered 
on Friday (3-10 p.m.) Those facilities 
that are so glibly referred to as sub- 
stitutes for visitation were for the 
most part closed. Certainly some memo from 
Mt. Olympus high atop Hamilton Hall could 
have given visitation "holiday" status, too, 
but none was forthcoming . 

Therefore, due to the manner in which 
the original hours of 1971-72 were charged 
and due to the unworkability and unpopularity 
of the current hours, I request the re- 
institution of the visitation hours of 1971- 
72. 

Respectfully yours, 
Jeffrey R. Alexander

RIDE ON, CENTENARY 



To the Editor: 

As a transfer student from SHU, I have 
found Centenary to be an interesting chal- 
lenge for twelve hours a week. By chance, 
I am also being allowed to witness, for 
a second time, young adults struggling for 
the right to do as they please. (Never 
understanding the first time why this 
"right" had to be earned or gained.) 

As a freshman, liberal visistation be- 
came a reality. Maximum hours (12-12 Sun- 
Th., 12-2 Fr. § Sat.) were allowed to us 
by the Trustees and Chancellor Tate, to 
be voted upon by individual dorm floors. 
To the surprise of no one (except, perhaps, 
the shock of the WCTU) maximum hours were 
accepted unanimously. Of course, orgies 
were everywhere and studying became a 
thing of the past. Of course. 

Second semester came to pass along with 
a demand for removal of girl's hours. In 
the ingenious way that seems to belong sole- 
ly to Trustees, a solution was presented. 
Girls could have no hours with parental 
permission. Surely the parents would not 
permit. Surely they did. 

To Dr. Allen I have a solution. (My 
apologies for any lack of ingenuity.) 
Let us build a seperate dorm for those 
students wishing no visitation and strict 
hours. With the 6 to 8 rooms needed due 
to the obviously predictable high demand 
for this facility, we could surely raise the 
funds needed by charging admission to the 
orgies being held in the other dorms. Of 
course. 

Ride on, Centenary. It's a nice place 
to visit, but who would want to live there? 
Russ Brabham 



SPECTRE HAUNTS CAMPUS 

To the Editor: 

A SDectre is haunting Centenary, 
the SDectre of open visitation. There 
has been a great deal of controversy 
over whether or not it will be rein- 
troduced. Charges and counter- charges 
have been made, bordering on election 
year polemics. Quite often one hears 
the question, "Why visistation?" 
asked by its opponents . There are 
reasons . 

Visitation benefits not only 
students but also the college. 
With Centenary's sagging enrollment and 
its sometime misguided efforts to make 
things more attractive (E.G., music 
in the cafeteria) , an added freedom 
cannot help but induce many nrospective 
freshmen. One wonders how many new 
students were looking forward to 
visitation only to find it virtually 
non-existent. 

The entire necessity for visitation 
has been questioned, on the grounds 
that people have not had it before, 
therefore it should not exist now. flay 
I noint out that penicillin, airplanes 
and radio didn't exist for millions of 
years; is that a reason to abolish them? 

With tuition and other costs up 
every year and very little increase in 
services , the administration can surely 
allow more social freedom. The way 
hours are currently arranged deprives, 
those with afternoon courses, E.G. labs, 
of visitation rights. A wall in the 
middle of the SUB hardly makes it a 
more attractive place for social inter- 
action. Open visitation entails no 
extra costs and will greatly enrich 
college life. 

If not the dorms, then where else 
do we go? After 10 pm, the SUB is 
closed. Mirrell 's gets very tiring 
and expensive, as does the Pizza King, 
the Carousel and, if one is luckv 
(enough to have a car, Baskin-Robbins . 



Hill Falls Down 

CONGLOMERATE staffers this week have been 
given orders to apprehend and bring to jus- 
tice the abiquitous Sam Hill, author of last 
week's article regarding the school cafeter- 
ia. It seems ol ' Sam made a goof, and a big 
one. Two, for that matter. 

First, the increase in the price of a mea] 
ticket this term is due to inflation, and 
anticipation of a boost in the Federally- 
fiated minimum wage, and was anticipated 
as long ago as last year's Catologue. The 
planned improvements played no part in the 
raise . 

Second, Mr. James Allen, Centenary comp- 
troller, did not say that "few" students 
would partake of caf victuals if not so 
compelled. Actually, Mr. Allen used the 
expression "considerably fewer" students 
would purchase meal tickets. 



Don't Forget I 



We haven't! We are still working on 
our Special recruiting fund. Your 
donations help, but we still need 
more! Any contribution, large or 
small is greatly appreciated. Please 
friends, we depend on you. 



According to Gentlemanly Speaking 
the school is here to develop "students 
as moral, intelligent, responsible 
members of an academic community..." 
(p. 15). How is this to be done if 
we are not entrusted with free choices? 
There is no moral development if we 
are kept from choice, only moral 
conditioning. Just this summer the 
State of Louisiana recognized 18-21- 
year-olds as adults, as Centenary 
un-recognized the same group.

Coed Dorms and Such 



by Cherry Payne 







"When is the last time anyone 
heard of a parity raid? Like 
segregation by sex, it symbo- 
lizes a mentality thoughtful 
college students deplore. It 
is the polarization of the 
sexes, the cat-and-mouse game, 
the fraternity's Saturday night 
extravaganza . " — Reader's Digest , 
FEB. 1970 "When College Dorms 
Go Co-Ed . " 

The advent of the 1972-73 school year 
has brought with it something that we at 
Centenary College (appropriately nick- 
named Contented College) have rarely 
experienced in the form of serious dis- 
cord between the administration and stu- 
dents. The issue which has been the 
catalyst for the present conflict began 
last summer with President Allen's de- 
cision to cut back on open dorm visi- 
tation hours. Presently, we find the 
students quite disturbed about the 
whole situation and expressing their 
opinions by means of letters, im- 
promptu demonstrations , name calling 
and that old campus ritual known as 
"The Panty Raid." The students are 
accosting the faculty in an attempt to 
gain their support. The faculty seems 
caught in the middle of the situation 
and thus far the only definite response 
has been I. D. G. A. D. , which perhaps, 
is the stand they should take. 

Consequently, a little research into 
the attitudes upon other campuses of 
similar situations seems appropriate. 
While I was unable to uncover how schools 
dealt with these issues, I was able to 
find arguements, both pro and con re- 
lating to this situation. 

In the October 1970 issue of School 
and Society there appears a statement 
made by Dr. John Anthony Brown, presi- 
dent of the Lindenwood Colleges in St. 
Charles, Missouri. The statement was 
made in response to student requests 
for intervisitation privileges in stu- 
dent rooms and was issued to the student 
body on December 19, 1969. While I 
personally disagree with some of Dr. 
Brown's arguements, I found them most 
interesting particularly in light of our 
own situation at Centenary. 

Dr. Brown begins his argument by 
explaining there are two problems to be 
solved in relation to the issue. The 
first is, who decides the issue, while 
the second is what the decision should 
be. He then states that in some 
questions the majority rule is not 
sufficient, but requires what he calls 
the right decision (this approach seems 
to bring to mind Dr. Allen's stand on 
the drinking issue, which most students, 
at least seem to feel was unsatisfactory). 

Following these preliminary statements. 



there are six points made, which I shall 
list briefly (but not without some edito- 
rial comments) : 

1. Because of the wide diversity 
of opinion, no campus -wide agree- 
ment is possible (as evidenced by 
the petition of two weeks ago, 
this is not the case at Centenary) . 

2. Because of the smallness of 
the campus the freedom of one group 
becomes an invasion of privacy for 
another group (it should be noted 
here that there are areas within 
the dormitories at Centenary which 
do not enjoy visitation privileges). 

3. The college must "confront 
change fearlessly" and realize that 
it is impossible to separate academic 
and social freedoms. 

4. However, if the college wishes 
to remain relevant it must not 
feel that what is done on the cam- 
pus is "their own affair." 

5. The "right" decision is the 
one which ultimately works in 
favor of the mission of the col- 
lege (at this point a list of 
attitudes regarding the "New Mora- 
lity" and sexual practices of 
students is made) . 

6. The mission of the college in 
an age of social change must be 
determined. 

Finally, a statement of the mission 
of the college is made, which, in effect 
states that the college must: 

A. make a "realistic and honest 
response to educational needs of 
this generation," 

B. embark upon a "program of 
examination working toward solu- 
tions to current social and intel? 
lectual issues," 

C. make an "...investigation of 
the changes of our times rather 
than a drifting with the tide..." 

A concluding statement is then made 
in which Dr. Brown turns down the stu- 
dent's request, as he feels that inter- 
visitation would create. ..".. .a style 
of life on this campus which would 
defeat us in our mission." 

I agree with a few of Dr. Brown's 
arguments but I must strongly disagree 
with his conclusion. For he seems to 
base his whole argument upon what he 
feels would be the consequences of 
such a move on the college campus with 
regard to sexual attitudes and prac- 
tices. This seems to be precisely 
the point at which the students and 
administration of Centenary differ. 
Perhaps other articles discussing co- 
educational dormitories will eliminate 
some of these prevalent fears con- 
cerning sexual habits (co-ed dorms are 
krrught in here because there seem*" to 
be no other articles discussing open 

ration, probably because it is 



simply not a hot enough issue in the 
scope of American society to warrant 
much attention at the national level) . 

In the SeptSmber 23, 1969 issue 
of Look magazine there appears an 
article entitled "Co-ed Living" by 
Betty Rollins. Us. 'Rollins did her 
research at Stanford university, 
particularly at the house of a co-ed 
fraternity, Lambda Nu. She noted that 
a ". . .familiarity of a certain kind, 
particularly in group, breeds non- 
romantic friendship." In other words, 
when students live together they think 
twice about having sex together. Ad- 
mittedly, if the old visitation hours 
are returned we will not be living 
together, but the dormitories, it seems, 
will take on a more natural air ( once 
again) in which students learn to relate 
to one another as persons and not sex 
objects. A Standford psychologist, 
Dr. Joseph Katz, has made a state- 
ment along these lines which he calls 
the "incest taboo." "In a curious way 
co-ed living deemphasizes sex. When a 
boy sees a girl every day, she becomes 
less of a sex object and more of a 
friend. When a boy lives close to a 
girl, the consequences of his actions 
are there. So he is more prudent." Per- 
haps this statement is no justification 
for open visitation as such, but it 
certainly seems to justify any move the 
college may make in that direction. 

In another article which appears 
in Reader's Digest (February, 1970), 
Martna Lear states "Segregation by 
sex is considered irrelevant and un- 
natural by today's students. . .Co-ed 
housing provides a much more natural 
environment." By, natural she means 
that brother-sister relationships form 
and students seem to take on a larger 
group of friends. If this is the case, how 
could intervisitation create a life-style 
which would prevent the college from carry- 
ing out its missions, as Dr. Brown seems 
to feel? 

Perhaps it is time for all of us here 
at Centenary to embark upon some intro- 
spection and decide exactly what the role 
of the college is both from the stand- 
point of the students and the community. 
Hopefully, from this experience both 
individuals and the college community 
will have been fulfilling at least some 
of its mission, regardless of what the 
ultimate decision concerning this issue is. 
Finally, I openly admit that all of my 
arguments presented have, in no way 
been unbiased, but I find it difficult to 
remain journr.listically honest due to 
my personal involvement in the situation.

THE CONGLOMERATE 



Page Seven 



by Jeff Daiell 

It isn't easy, you understand, to come 
back after being firebombed, but that's 
exactly what Dominic Cangelosi and his wife 
Robin have done with their little shoo, cal- 
led Leatherhead, on Highland near King's 
Highway (across from Safeway) . 

With Pfeffer, a longhaired dog, as 
Cangelose pointed out wryly, Dominic and 
Robin have been in business in the little 
purple shop for two years and two months. 

The store began strictly as a leathergoods 
store, but eventually expanded and evolved 
into a "head shop." Now it carries posters, 
tripes, patches, paraphernalia and other 
particularly and patently pleasing parcels, 
as well as leather goods. 

Things started slowly, Dominic remembers, 
but now business has picked up and gathered 
a full head of steam, although the store 
experiences a drop when school begins again. 
Business is good enough, he noted, for him 
and Robin to look for a new location, this 
one to be used strictly for leather, 
posters , and clothes ; Dominic says a lot 
of people avoid Leatherhead because of the 
presence of his pipes. This way, he says, 
he can cater to both types of markets , head 
and non-head. Or, in other words, you 
really can have your not and smoke it, too.

The business is fun, says Dominic, who had 
previous business experience and who went into 
Leatherhead more for monetary than philosophi- 
cal reasons, but it can also be some head- 
aches, with occasional flashes of unreques- 
ted excitement. Headaches and excitement 
have included being arrested by the 
Shrevenort police- -freedom's first line of 
defense- -for the high crime against the 
commonweal of posting an American flag with 
a peace symbol instead of stars in the blue 
union. And, of course, there was that fire- 
bombing, by a local sentinel of democracy, 
which cost Leatherhead over $1,000 in stock, 
plus the inestimable loss in labor and men- 
tal work that went into the leather goods 
consumed by the flames of righteous 
indignation. 

Despite the harassments and outbursts of 
unprovoked hatred, Dominic and Robin 
have, as I said, come back strong. They're 
looking forward to dealing with all the 
Gents who like visiting unusual and excit- 
ing shops. 

Things are quieter now, for Dominic, 
Robin, and Pfeffer. Things have calmed down, 
and even Shreveport, U.S.A., the city on the 
Grow, seems to have accepted the little 
lavender, and pleasant-smelling shop called 
Leatherhead.

Korea), a tour leader ("approximately 4,000 
go on his Holy Land tours annually" at 
$700 a trip for the latest one) , and the 
"subject of at least 12 major biographies 
by well-known authors and from leading 
publishers." . 

Hargis is wrapped very tightly within 
the folds of America's active right wing, 
as shown by the membership list of the 
Board of Regents of his college, which 
begins at "A" for Tom Anderson, rightwing 
humorist and running-mate of American 
Party Presidential candidate John Schmitz, 
and ends at "IV" for former generals Edwin 
Walker (of Ole Miss Riot and John Birch 
Society literature -to -the -troops fame) 
and Clyde Watts . 

Young Americans for Freedom QfAF) , the 
nation's best -known conservative youth 
organization, for many years shied away from 
association with Hargis crusades , but 
recently has become more willing. One 
YAF leader, ex-communist Phillio Abbott 
Luce , now aopears at Hargis ' Christian 
Crusade functiors. 

The Kids withdrew from the stage for a 
few minutes while the slides of the college 
were shown, then returned, for a second 
round of songs with a new addition to the 
folksy lakeside backdrop: a huge Jesus 
Poster plastered between the cottage and 
the lake. 

An hour had passed; the time for Billy 
James Hargis to appear was upon us . The 
spot centered on the poster face of Jesus, 
the Kids sang, "Jesus, Jesus, there's 
something about that name." Ladies and 
Gentlemen, Billy James Hargis. 

Hargis is not Huey. Yes, he did take 
his coat off (donning it again for a few 
minutes when the CONGLOMERATE approached 
the stage for a photo) , but he continued 
to wear his tie. In speaking, he slurs 
his words , adding an element of uncer- 
tainty to his presence, and he refrains 
from table -pounding, high decibel counts, 
or wild motions . 

Apologetic, Hargis noted the heat 
verbally and with periodic handkerchief 
face-patting, and he announced the pre- 
sence in the crowd of a friend named Billy 
Frank and State "Senator Harold Montgomery . 

His message, lasting fifty minutes, 
flitted over Jesus and politics to come 
to rest on disarmament and the recently 
ratified Moscow Treaty which "may well 
have been the finish of the American 
dream." 

Needless to say, speechifying and 
fundraising finished, the rally ended 
with a rousing patriotic finale, with 
the Kids charging into the hot audito- 
rium from the rear carting flags of the 
fifty states, planting them onstage, 
and singing (or singing-along with the 
recording) "America" and similar songs 
as a huge flag unfurled. The American 
one , of course . 

In the following interview, Hargis 
discusses his religious beliefs, YAF 
and his other political associations, 
ex-evangelist Mar joe Gortner (subject 
of a new film reviewed in this CON- 
GLOMERATE) , and other subjects. 

CONGLOMERATE : Dr. Hargis, do you face 
much antagonism when you bring your 
message, your fundamental message, to 
cities the size of Shreveoort and 
larger? 

HAPGIS: Of course you're not likely to 
face the antagonism in the South that 
I do in the East. For instance, 
I've held rallies, like, right in 
auditoriuns rieht on Broadway, in 
Chicago, and •Philadelphia and those 
nlaces, and you do face antagonism 
there. It's not unusual for then to 
picket and to have demonstrations, 
and there for a while they'd even try 
to break up the meetings. The real 
so-called athiestic revolutionary would 
come in and start problems, that's why 
we had to start charging admission, to 
be honest with you. We charge a very 
small admission--just a dollar--but 
that kind of keeps out the guys who 
come to make troubh 

I read an article this weekend tl 
was very interesting about Terry Pubin 
at the Democratic convention. Seems like 
there were some Jesus people that were in 
that nark where all the rest of the 
demonstrators were. Thev had a little 



amplifier and they were giving their 
testimony and singing Gospel songs, and 
Jerry Rubin broke up the meeting and some 
black boy came along and said "I thought 
you were for free speech." You know, he 
was with Rubin, he wasn't with the Jesus 
people, and he said "I thought we were 
for free speech. We're free to speak, 
why can't these people talk?" But I found 
out that some of the radical , real 
radical leftist kids , their idea of free 
speech is freedom to say what they want to 
say but not allow anyone else to say it. 
CONGLOMERATE: One ex-fundamentalist preach- 
er named Mar joe Gortner has been making 
the late night TV rounds claiming that 
many of the fundamentalists are in it 
for the money. 
HARGIS: Well, Marjoe's got a problem. 

Marjoe. . . 
CONGLOMERATE : Did you know him? 
HARGIS: Oh yeah. No, I've met him once. 
Marjoe was exploited by his parents, 
that's the unfortunate thing. They made 
him a preacher when he was four, a 
Pentecostal preacher, and he was marrying 
people, holding revivals, and then he 
became disillusioned with his parents as 
he grew up. They got a divorce, his mother 
remarried and this soured him on religion. 
Then Marjoe went the communal living route, 
he joined a hippie commune. 
(Editor's Note: Portions of this para- 
graph have been deleted due to possible li- 
belous content; we were unable to contact 
Mr. Gortner for verification or denial.] 

This guy tried to make a comeback. He 
tried to get back .in the Pentecostal 
churches. They were smart enough to see 
through him and so he couldn't get a 
place to preach, he couldn't get an 
audience anywhere, so therefore he sold 
to the highest bidder. It's interesting 
to note that the same bird that has been 
the chief financial backer of George Mc- 





Above, Dr. Billy 
James Hargis . 
Left, little old 
ladies peruse 
propaganda . 



Govern is the chief financial backer of 
Marjoe. 

CONGLOMERATE: Who's that? 

HARGIS: The California computer millionaire 
who*s made a hundred million dollars, 
that nut the first money, big money into 
McGovern's campaign, financed the film of 
Marjoe, and Marjoe has just sold to the 
highest bidder. Marjoe now wants to be 
an actor, and of course the reason he's 
making the rounds on the late-night 
movies is that he's sensational, and 
they're looking for ratings and so forth. 
Some of the things that he's said are 
nure blasphemy, such as the statement that 
the blood of Chirst is just so much gar- 
bage. He said that on the Dick Cavet't 
show. But I haven't attacked Marjoe by 
name and I'll tell you why- -because I 
don't want to give him the nublicity. 

Right now this film is just showing 
in a few cann centers like Los Angeles, 
and when I say camp you know what I mean, 
New York and Dallas, and it's not a 
nuhlicly accented film. It's not show- 
ing in the little cinemas in Lake Charles 
or Baton Rouge or something, you know, so 
I don't see any sense in giving him the 
nublicity. 

He wrote me a letter and said that God 
made him do it, and said he wanted me 
to understand that God made him do this 
film, and I think he was trying to kind 
of needle me into a fipht or something . 
I'm not gonna get involved because he's 
just a little opportunist that's trying 




to make a buck. 

CONGLOMERATE : What would you say to some of 
the Bible professors who say some of the 
same things he said, that the blood of 
Christ is not that important? They don't 
hold fundamental beliefs. 

HARGIS: They are students of higher 

criticism. Well I say to them they're 
doing more harm than Marjoe. Marjoe's 
not going to undermine anybody's faith 
in God or Jesus Christ, but these 
theological liberals will. 

Young kid comes from a fundamental 
church like a Southern Baptist Church or 
a Southern Methodist Church or a Christian 
Ghurch- -Church of Christ- -and he comes to 
one of these schools. The Virgin Birth's 
attacked, Bloed Atonement's attacked- - 
these are the birds can do the harm. And 
of course I think that the peonle that sup- 
port these theological schools should be 
concerned as to what the theological pro- 
fessors believe. 

CONGLfMEPATE : There's a huge split in the 
conservative camp between people like 
William Buckley and National Review , and 
the John Birch Society, the Liberty Lobby, 
Ayn Rand objectivists . How do you stand? 
Some neople have said that Buckley's 
National Review is not conservative. Do 
you hold to that? 

HARGIS: No, not at all. Bill Buckley's about 
as conservative as they come. He's a so- 
phisticated conservative, but he's still 
conservative. I look at him like this: 
He's reaching some people I'd never reach. 
On the other hand I 'm reaching some 
people he'd never reach. On the other 
hand Carl Mclntyre is reaching some 
people I would never reach. 

Let me straighten the record. Liberty 
Lobby is nothing. Liberty Lobby is a 
little oaner organization. They don't 
have any rallies or legitimate membership; 
they don't even have any legitimate 
activities. I wouldn't even classify 
them as a legitimate conservative group. 
It's just kind of a promotional organiza- 
tion. 

But Mclnityre is certainly legitimate 
and Ayn Rand is certainly legitimate, al- 
though Ayn and I are poles apart . She ' s 
an athiest, and I'm very much an orthodox 
Christian. 

CONGLOMERATE: What about the charges? 
You're in it for the money, you're not 
really an anti -communist, you just want 
to get your dollar- a-head when people 
come to town, and run out again. What do 
you say to that? 

HARGIS: Oh, I don't say anything. I've 
been in it for twenty-six years. I 
started Christian Crusade twenty years 
ago, and obviously they were based on two 
principles, faith and free enterprise, 
and if the people didn't feel I was 
sincere, they wouldn't support me. 

I rise and fall by the reaction of the 
people, just like Coca Cola or Pepsi Cola 
or Ford Motor Company or General Motors. 
If I don't deliver the goods, people aren't 
goint to support me. 

CONGLOMEPATE : I believe it was your vice- 
president, David Noebel , who wrote a book 
which stirred up a lot of controversy on 
the Beatles and revolution. 

HARGIS: Of course, everything he said 

obviously is true because now they've come 
out and admitted that they were Communists, 
and they were and are on done. Every- 
thing he charged, what, ten years ago has 
been proven. By the way, that book's com- 
ing out again. The original book was 
called Rhythm, Piots and Pevolution , and 
it's being issued by a major publisher this 
year, and it's being called the Marxist 
Minstrels.

THE CONGLOMERATE 




BY PAM AND MICHAEL ROSENTHAL 
All RIGHTS RESERVED BY ALTERNATIVE FEATURES SERV»CE 



"Mar joe" 



Marjoe's been preaching the gospel since 
he was four years old. 

We once saw his picture in an ancient 
Life magazine. He was six, then, with perox- 
ided curls and little white cowboy boots, per- 
forming a marriage ceremony over a couple 
who must have possessed either a trans - 
cendant faith or a highly -developed media- 
sense. 

The name is derived from Mary and Joseph, 
and Mar joe was the hottest thing on the Pent- 
acostal circuit for a decade. He suspects 
that he earned about three million dollars 
during those years, though he never saw 
most of it, his father having split with 
the take. Abounding with outrageous de- 
tails, Marjoe's story comes across as an- 
other grotesque saga of person as product, 
life as hype, slow death through merchandi- 
zing. 

But Marjoe endured. In his mid-teens 
he refused to continue preaching, instead 
bummed around, living a while with an older 
woman whom he credits for much of his sanity. 
He went back to preaching on his own at the 
age -of twenty. 

Now, some ten years later, he's sold his 
hustle to the movies, featured in a docu- 
mentary that attempts to expose the Holy 
Roller racket--a film that's a portrait of 
the kind of show biz that allows pious America 
to get it on and still be washed in the 
blood of the lamb. 

The movie follows Marjoe on his last tour, 
through revival tents and marble temples, 
through the singing and the stomping and the 
backstage money -changing too. Intercut are 
personal raps and confessions, and footage 
from Marjoe's early preaching years --a 
terrifying little automaton reciting hell- 
fire by rote, but entirely" professional, 
Billy Graham speeded up to 78 rpm. 

This documentary isn't much of an expose. 
The largely simple-minded camera loves to 
zoom in on crisp ten and twenty-dollar bills, 
as though each appearance of filthy lucre 
were a sordid and shocking revelation. There 
There are also "serious" shots (Marjoe con- 
templative) and more zooms ( a lighted joint 
at a New York party, to symbolize big- 
city sophistication; Coca-Cola at a pastor's 
patio lunch, to stand for Middle-American 
dreck . ) 

But Marjoe endures this too. For what- 
ever his motives, sincere self -purgation or 
a sharp sense of where the real action is 
(or more probably, some freaKe3"-out com- 
bination) , he comes through as an extra- 
ordinarily talented, magnetic, sexy, and 
even likeable showman. With his Pierre 
Cardin suits and Mick Jagger strut --he's 
studied Jagger, and puts the act to better 
use than we've ever seen on the rock and roll 
stage- -Marjoe performs miracles of audience 
involvement. Middle-aged men and women dance 
andsing, babble in tongues, and fall into 
quivering orgasmic fits as they'-'Wjet Jesus 
tonight." 

There's still the hustle, though. 
Directors and cameramen try to make us feel 
sophisticated as we watch the marks get 
taken--the drip-dry, wash'n'wear, unhip, un- 
elegant, bra-and-girdle, teased -haired, thick 
glassed crowd who pay, and pay big, for Bro- 
ther Marjoe's blessing. The filmmakers pro- 
ject an unpleasant sense of superiority over 
Marjoe's followers that stems, unfortunate- 
ly, less from their being manipulated than 
from their being unbeautiful and uncool. 
This conies through in cameras that are more 
interested in grotesquerie than ecstasy, 
that have little sympathy for spontaneous 
emotional experience when it means flabby 
upper arms and sagging bosoms in compulsive 
rhythms. 

It's ironic too that filmmakers from a 
generation that places such a premium on 
self-expression, on actively getting it on, 
should so need to distinguish between us and 
them. Because, in fact, it looks like~thev're 
getting their money's worth at least as full 
as most^ rock audiences. Marjoe blesses, 
clasps ," grabs , touches his flock; if it's 



consumerism, it's a less alienated brand of 
consumerism than we saw among the unmoving, 
glazed- eyed crowd on the hill at Woodstock. 
And most important, Marjoe's people don't 
pay in front. We plunk down our $4.50 or 
$5.50 to hear some watered-down stompin' 
from Leon Russell, and it's just tough if 
we don't get it on. Marjoe's congregants 
don't pay until after the Spirit hits them. 
At least they get to try before they buy. 

Luckily the unsympathetic focus doesn't 
destroy the film, perhaps because we're made 
to feel that Marjoe has experienced some level 
of rapport and affection for his congre- 
gations. We may be suckers for his line, 
just like his little old ladies, but we 
believed it when he said he enjoyed getting 
people to loosen up and have a good time-- 
that maybe he'd still be in the business if 
he could have cut out the hellfire and damna- 
tion parts. And they do loosen up: the 
film is most exciting when we see people 
in ecstasy, shuddering and crying, or smil- 
ing and hugging. The spirit of Marjoe's 
people comes through despite all odds.

Roane Reviews 

Mountain 

NANTUCKET SLEIGHRIDE 

For Mountain, "Nantucket Sleigh- 
ride" represents a tremendous achieve- 
ment in the field of rock music. All of 
the musicians have improved incredibly, 
if that is possible, and have come forth 
more than they had done on the group's 
first album for Windfall, "Climbing". 

Felix Pappalardi soars into action, 
and plays some of the finest and most 
intricate bass lines ever heard. His 
mellow vocal style is a valuable asset 
to the group and is contrasted sharply 
with West's raspy singer voice. Along 
with Pappalardi , drummer Corky Laing 
propels the group with his explosive 
rhythms and sets a blistering pace for 
the others to follow. The screaming 
.guitar of Leslie West breaks the sound 
barrier and rides high above the strong 
foundation created by Pappalardi and 
Laing. Steve Knight, on organ and 
piano, rounds out the group and weaves 
intriguing melodies into and around the 
music of the others. 

Although each of the musicians play 
very strongly and forcefully, they never 
overpower. Contrary to what most people 
think, jazz is based on improvisation 
and not charted horn riffs . In this 
respect, Mountain is much more of a jazz- 
inclined group than other groups con- 
taining a horn or reed section and who 
play in a very disciplined manner. Moun- 
tain plays loudly but not noisily. 

Although all of the songs in the 
album were found to be very enjoyable, 
three were particular standouts. "Don't 
Look Around" gets the album off to an 
excellent start. This is a very fast 
number and yet surprisingly, a flawless 
one. The rhythm section of Pappalardi 
and Laing never lag for a second and do 
not let up until the very last note. 
West turns in a good job on vocals and 
his guitar work on this number is also 
worth noting. On the title song, "Nan- 
tucket Sleighride", Pappalardi does the 
singing and does a particularly fine 
job of it. Steve Knight uses his piano 
and organ to blend with the vocals and 
creates a very harmonious effect. There 
are many changes in melody and rhythm 
and these changes are made very smoothly 
and require a lot of coordination bet- 
ween musicians. "My Lady" is a very re- 
freshing and easy-going number. Pappa- 
lardi sings this one also and is up to his 
usual high standard. The vocal harmonies 
on tins song are exceptionally good. 

This album is one of the finest 
recordings made this year and it cer- 
tainly deserves the attention of all of 
you rock freaks out there. Mountain is 
a group of four musicians with an immense 
amount of talent. With this album, a lot 
of this talent is just coming to the sur- 
face. This is only one step for Mountain 
and they will undoubltedly surpass this 
album in the very near future. But at 
least for now, "Namtucket Sleighride" will 
satisfy our needs for some really fine 
"""sic --Bob Roane

Argent 

ALL TOGETHER NOW 

When Chris White and Rod Argent left the 
Zombies, their talent followed. Finally, 
after many searches, the two found peace in 
a new group , Argent . (The band wanted this 
name, because of Rod Argent's determination 
and quality in his music.) Since they first 
formed , they have cut three albums . The 
most well known cut from the first album 
was "Liar," a song that Russ Ballard (lead 
guitarist) composed, and Three Dog Night 
made a mint off of. From their second 
album, Ring of Hands , Russ Ballard again 
wrote a song that T.D.N, made a million from; 
the song, currently on most stations, is 
called "Chained." 

"Hold Your Head Dp" is their current hit, 
and they are, strangely enough, the ones you 
hear, instead of Three Dogs. "Hold Your 
Head Up" is only a taste of the ability of 
Argent, with Robert Henrit on drums and 
Tim Rodford rounding out the 4 -man band. 
The inside cover adequately describes Rod as 
a perfectionist. He is just that. The 
notes mix beautifully, due mainly to Chris 
White's ability as a record producer (he 
does the mixing of all the music) . 

"Keep on Rollin'" and "He's a Dynamo" 
are the rock and roll boogie songs and are 
consistently clean. The only song that may 
tend to drag is "Pure Love," which has a 
long organ solo (by Rod Argent) . It moves 
drastically into a beautiful blues ride, 
where Russ Ballard is at his best. 

This could be classified as a "soft" 
hard-rock album and is well worth listening 
to. Argent has reached a new peak in music, 
and will go on to attain new heights in 
rock. As long as Chris White and Rod Argent 
stick together. Give them a chance to 
surround you with good music. 



Black Oak Arkansas 

BLACK OAK ARKANSAS 

Being from Arkansas, I should be 
backing a group like Black Oak, but I'm 
not. This is an old album, their debut, 
and have cut a few others. As for this 
one album, there are only four redeeming 
songs that are at best mediocre. "Uncle 
Lijah" rocks, but the lead singer of the 
group, Jim "Dandy" Mangrum, ruins the song 
with his raspy voice (two levels below 
Rod Stewart) . The music in all of the 
songs are well nlayed. representing the 

ability of the group. "I Could Love 
You" is the best, mainly because Mangrum 
doesn't sing much. "Hot 'n Nasty" is 
good, like "When Electricity Came to 
Arkansas," but neither makes the album 
a sound investment. 

The people contained in Black Oak- 
are doing one very good thing. With 
some of their concert money, they are 
purchasing guitars for the men and 
women in the Arkansas prison system 
(500 so far), and believe me, those 
people in the prisons back home need

ANYONE FOR PREP FOOTBALL? 



Sports on TV 

Football season is in full swing again, 
and gridiron telecasts dominate the tele- 
vision schedules of this weekend. 

The first shown is Saturday morning at 
11:30 when NBC presents highlights of last 
week's outstanding pro game on Channel 6. 
Then, at 12:30 p.m., NCAA College Football 
takes to the air as ABC and Channel 3 
travel to New Orleans for the home opener 
of the Tulane Green Wave against the 
Georgia Bulldogs. Winding up Saturday's 
football schedule is the CBS offering, 
"This Week in Pro Football," featuring 
highlights of all of the NFL's first- 
week games . That one -hour broadcast 
begins at 3 p.m. on Channel 12. 

Lest anyone forget, the American 
League currently has one of its hottest 
oennant races in recent years. Four 
Eastern Division teams -- Boston, Detroit, 
Baltimore and New York -- are battling 
for one playoff spot. Two of those clubs 
-- the Tigers and the Red Sox -- tangle 
at Fenway Park on NBC Major League Base- 
ball Saturday at 1 n.m. on Channel 6. 

ABC's 'Vide World of Snorts is scheduled 
for Saturday at 4 p.m. on Channel 3. 

Sunday's football marathon starts at 
10:30 a.m. on Channel 12 with highlights 
of the Grambling-Cal State Game. One hour 
later an NFL football doubleheader kicks 
off, spotlighting the Dallas Cowboys and 
the New York Giants in the first game and 
the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions 
in the windup. If none of those teams suit 
you, change to Channel 6 at noon for the 
Houston -Mi ami clash from the Orange Bowl . 

Winding up the long football weekend is 
'light Football ," with Frank 
>rd calling the day -by-play, along 

; expert commentary of Don Meredith and 
ird Coscll. This week's contest origin- 
ates from the Tulane Stadium in New Orleans, 
where the Saints play host to the Kansas 
City Chiefs beginning at 8 n.m. on Channel 
3. 



by Tom Marshall 

O.K., your roommate's TV is on the blink 
(but you didn't want to watch the tube any- 
way) , your research paper's not due 'till 
day after tomorrow so you don't really need 
to start on that yet, you're tired of : 
being counted three times an evening by the 
librarian, and you certainly can't entertain 
your date in your room. 'So what do you do? 

Well, one possible alternative to sheer 
boredom is high school football. After all, 
it hasn't been too long since you were a 
high schooler. .And it is a matter of fact 
that there's some pretty good prep football 
being nlayed every weekend in Shreveport and 
Bossier. And you won't suffer from lack of 
selection, either -- this weekend there are 
seven orep gridiron contests on tap at four 
Shrevenort-Bossier Stadiums. 

Twelve years ago, there were only four 
high schools in Shreveport and Bossier City 
-- Byrd, Fair Park, Bossier, and St. John's 
(now Jesuit) . Since I960, however, there's 
been a great building boom to go along with 
increased student population. Starting 
with Woodlawn in 1960, a total of nine new 
high schools have opened. In addition to 
those named above, the list now includes 
Airline (Bossier) , Booker T. Washington, 
Cantain Shreve, Parkway, Southwood, Bethune, 
Green Oaks and Northwood. 

With the new schools come new rivalries 
-- as well as the traditional ones that have 
been around for years. Ever since the early 
1900 's the Byrd Vellow Jackets-Fair Park 
Indians clash was THE game of the year for 
thousands of high school students . Remnants 
of that Thanksgiving Day showdown remain to 
this day as Byrd observes "Go West Day"-- 
shades of the "Go West -- Scalp the Indians" 
cry -- and Fair Park is transformed into a 
campus -wide reservation -- complete with 
genuine imitation teepees occupied with 
several thousand Indians mettering something 
about 'teat Byrd". 

The new rivalries have almost overshadowed 
the animosities between Byrd and Fair Park, 



Sports Shorts 



The Centenary Sailing Club will meet 
iTiursday at 7:00 p.m. in room 06 
of the Library. This will be the first 
meeting of the Club this fall and all 
interested students , faculty members and 
members are invited to attend. 



The Fall Team Tennis Tournament is sche- 
duled for October 5-6-7 in Conway, Arkansas. 



The Fourth Annual Centenary Fall 
Golf I nvi rational winds up today as the 
last rounds are played at Shreveport 
Country Club. Besides host Centenary 
the 5-team field includes favorites 
Houston and Oklahoma State as well as 
Wichita State and Southwestern 
Louisiana. 

mtmmmmmmmm 



however. Geographical divisions have fostered 
new and more determined enemies. For instance, 
when Cant. Shreve was opened several years 
ago, its district cut the former Byrd district 
in half. Ergo, the Gators and the Jackets 
are out for blood in their yearly get-together. 
The same situation exists in the southwest 
part of town, where Woodlawn and Southwood 
now share an area that formerly belonged 
exclusively to Woodlawn. Those family fights 
can be tough -- and fun to watch. 

And when all the cross -town feuding is 
over, four teams -- two each from Shreveport - 
Bossier's, two Louisiana High School Athletic 
Association classifications (1-AAAA and 1- 
AAA) -- carry the local banner into state 
playoff competition. When that happens, a 
Centenary student couldprobably have a 
pretty good time if he joined the hordes of 
suddenly football -crazy local devotees. 
I'hereas 10-15,000 might be tops in attendance 
during a regular season contest, it is not 
uncommon to see State Fair Stadium filled to 
near-capacity (33,000) for a prep playoff. 

Sometimes the results have been gratifying 
for the locals. Take 1967, for instance. 
Two schools -- Jesuit and Airline -- took 
state championships with slim victories 
on consecutive weekends at State Fair Stadium. 
The following year Woodlawn took the champ- 
ionship in the state's highest classification. 
And just for reference, that was the same 
year that Robert Parish was a straping 6 '9" 
freshman at Union High. 

That '68 Woodlawn bunch was the last 
Shrevenort-Bossier state grid kingpin. 
Captain Shreve, which has developed into 
somewhat of a power in its short history, went 
to the semifinals last year before bowing out 
to St. Augustine of New Orleans. But whether 
the teams are state champions or losers that 
struggle through winless seasons, cross -town 
rivals or inter-state strangers, surprise 
winners or unset victims, Shreveport-Bossier 
oreo football is played seriously, enthusias- 
tically and abundantly. 

And it might even be worth watching.

THE COSMIC DRAMA

Act One. The stage: dark or bright, because only energy exists; no life, no matter, no soace, 
no vacuum. The time: twelve billion years ago. The story: energy develops into matter, matter into 
planets, stars and galaxies. 

Act Two. The stage: light, hot. The time: a few Genesis days later. The story: with proper 
temperature and atmospheric conditions, matter coalesces into single-cell organisms, followed by 
multi-cell organisms, vertebrae, mammals, anthropoids , lemurs, man. 

Act Three. Where do we go from here? 

Dr. George K. Schweitzer, Willson Lecturer, thinks he knows the answer. Addressing Centenary 
students and faculty yesterday, Dr. Schweitzer, Professor of Chemistry at the University of Tennes- 
see and author of over one hundred works in inorganic and nuclear chemistry, radioactivity, philo- 
sophy, and religion, described the cosmic drama. 

"The big question," he stated in a CONGLOMERATE interview prior- to the lecture "is whether 
there's anything going on here. Is this all accidental or is a cosmic drama being played out' Is 
something with a deep, rich inner-meaning being played out on the stage, maybe not iust on this 
planet?" J 

A personable, garrulous intellectual with near-muttonchon sideburns, Dr. Schweitzer speaks 
with a deceptive mountain twang. Davy Crockett, Ph.D. 

He traced the plot of the cosmic drama through five major crises. First, energy became matter, 
then matter coalesced into life, life broke through to the mind, and the mind broke through to the 
personality. Do we remain at this level? No, says Dr. Schweitzer. 

"I think there's already been another breakthrough. Out of the totality of my experience I've 
searched around for another breakthrough, and my own basic belief is that this occurred in the being 
or a very, very strange man--a kind of an unorthodox, wandering, ininerant, bearded, swarthy -skinned 
rabbi whose name was Jesus. The next evolutionary breakthrough on the planet has occurred " 

Act Three, then, calls for total audience participation. The latest stage, the sixth crisis 
of the cosmic drama, is noted in the script at the key phrase "Societal Compassion," or "Cosmic 
Consciousness." 

"Societal Compassion is a situation in which every man sees himself as part of a compassionate 
stream which ripples through the whole universe and he sees himself related to every other beino-- 
not every other man, but every other being: atoms and molecules and cockroaches and so on. The 'eco- 
logical thrust. And he sees himself in a compassionate relationship to every other being. He's kind 
of called into the program." 

There is long-range hone in the universe, Dr. Schweitzer believes, hinging upon man's accep- 
tance of Cosmic Consciousness, which he is free to doubt. 'Having our freedom means that we can 
look at a grand cosmic pattern like this and we can conclude that there's an ordered process in it 
or that there s not. Whether you see any order in the Process depends on your total life 
situation: it doesn't denend on knowledge." 

The drama as Dr. Schweitzer sees it is continuing, but it contains a definite message for 
the present. Anything but living with utter compassionate concern is in the Ion* -run both indi- 
vidual and societal suicide. This is the core of the Christian faith " 

Dr. Schweitzer is an active member of First Baptist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee, and teaches 
in University Seminars sponsored by that church. He is an active visiting lecturer, having snoken to 
various grouns at over three hundred colleges and unversities accross the United states 

On Thursday October 5th at 10:40 am in the Chanel, the Willson Lecture Series will continue 
witfi Dr. Harmon L. Smith speaking on "Human Sexual Responsibility "

institution and has served as a Methodist minister. He has been visiting professor at both the 
University of Edinburgh m Scotland and the Universith of North Carolina

Baptist Fish Hooked 

By Jeff Daiell 

Earlier this year, the Shreveport-Bossier 
Baptist Student Union (across from the Library 
on Woodlawn) , in an attempt to let students 
and passers-by know that the Baptist Center 
was not merely the administrative headquar- 
ters of the Northwest Louisiana Baptist As- 
sociation, but also a center of Christian 
activities for interested students, erected 
a sign in their front lawn, in the shane of a 
fish, reading "REAL LIFE IN JESUS", with de- 
tails about the BSU. They chose the fish 
because that was the ancient symbol of 
Christianity Qboth because of Christ's re- 
femces to 'fishers of men' and also be- 
cause, when one takes the first letter of 
the Creek words "for "Jesus Christ, of God the 
.Son, and Savior', they form IXOYE, the Creek 
word for fish) . 

On Friday, September 22nd, they discover- 
ed that their piscine sign had disappeared. 
Shortly thereafter, one of the guilty sca- 
lawags called the BSU and gloated over the 
crime, revealing that the culprits, all 
three of them, were Centenary pre-med stud- 
ents. It seems the trio objected to the 
selfsureness and exclusiveness of the expres- 
sion, "REAL LIFE IN JESUS", and had chosen 
thievery as a way of striking out for open- 
ness of mind and toleration of differing 
opinion. BSU's Director, (Rev.) Carl Smith, 
expresses sadness over the infantile inci- 
dent , but is making no extraordinary efforts 
to effect its recovery.

It's Easy to Find 
Hard-to-Get Books 



The Shreve Memorial Library provides a 
valuable supplement to the Centenary Library 
as a source for research, study, and re- 
creational reading for students and faculty. 
The Main Library for the Shreve System is 
downtown opposite the Washington Youree 
Hotel at 400 Edwards Street. The Broad- 
moor Branch on Youree Drive across from 
the Broadmoor Theatre is convenient to the 
Centenary Campus . 

The Main Library has one of the best 
geneology collections in the South and is 
strong in the areas of petroleum, com- 
merce, and business. It is also a de- 
pository library for state and federal 
publications. As such, it is an excellent 
source for materials on the 1970 census , 
back years of the Congressional Record, and 
similar current and retrospective government 
documents. The total collection of the 
Shreve Memorial Library and its branches 
numbers 225,491 volumes. 

The circulating picture collection is 
of special interest to students eager to 
set un a system of rotating decorations 
for their dormitory rooms. Framed prints 
of well-known paintings can be borrowed for 
four weeks, subject to renewal if the pic- 
ture really fits the mood and the color 
scheme. A circulating record collection is 
also available for those who want sound to 
supplement the pictures. 

The presentation of a valid Centenary 
I.D. Card is normally sufficient for stu- 
dents and faculty to secure a Shreve library 
card. Otherwise, books and other printed 
materials may be borrowed by inter library 
loan through the Centenary Library. All 
materials borrowed from the Shreve Memorial 
Library System can be returned at the Cen- 
tenary Library for transmittal to the Main 
Library via the Green Gold Library System 
book van.

Off-Campus Fees 
Studied in State 

A committee of the state board of Education 
will study a proposal to add up to $60 a 
year to the fees of a college student living 
off campus. 

The committee was appointed at the board 
meeting last week after Jesse Bankston, a 
member from Baton Rouge, said it had cost 
the state as much as 5125,000 in court costs 
to enforce dormitory regulations. 

"Requiring all undergraduate students to 
live in dormitories is not promoting edu- 
cation," Bankston said. "It might be paying 
for dormitories but it's not Dromoting ed- 
ucation." 

Under his proposal , any student over 21 
could live off campus but could be charged 
an extra $60 a year if too few students stay 
in dormitories and make it impossible to pay 
off the bonded indebtedness . 

An expected controversy over contingency 
contracts was averted when Bankston withdrew 
a pronosal aimed at J). F. Burkhalter, a 
Monroe contractor and friend of former Edu- 
cation Supt. William Dood. The contracts 
were awarded by the board several months ago 
and were conditional on the certification 
of feasibility by legal counsel. 

Student Consumers Set 
National Conference 

A group of students at the Bloomington 
campus of Indiana University has announced 
the Second National Conference On Student 
Consumer Action. The theme of the confer- 
ence, "Students as Citizens: Prer>aration 
for Responsible action," is centered around 
the belief that the subject of students as 
consumers and responsible citizens is of 
concern to government, academic, community, 
business and other student representatives. 

It has been the experience of many 
of the student planners that more sat-is-

VISITATION ISNT EDUCATION 

To the Editor: . 

I would like to express my feelings 
about dorm rights. I don't care about 
how many hours a day I can have a guy 
in my room and I 'm 'very bored with this 
whole conflict. 

I came to Centenary because I heard it 
was a good olace to get an excellent edu- 
cation. Thus far I have not been disap- 
pointed. I like this place with or with- 
out liberal dorm visitation hours. I like 
the spirit of intellectual freedom that 
prevails in many of the classrooms. If 
dorm visitation has anything to do with 
that intellectual freedom, I cannot see 
it. 

I think there are other more important 
things to be worried about at Centenary 
than 'dorm visitation. The school is in 
financial trouble. Enrollment is down. I 
want to helD with these problems and I'm 
sure that others do. I want to help 
recruit new students. If dorm visitation 
will heln with that - (Treat - I'm for it - 
but otherwise it just doesn't seem that 
important. 

I will try to listen attentively to 
any other point of view. 

Sincerely, 
Cynthia Lewis

THE BLUEJEAN BOYCOTT 

To the Editor: 

The battle for Chicano rights and 
dignity is shifting from the agricultural 
to the industrial scene. Although Mexican- 
Americans comprise about 951 of the migrant 
work force, only 15* of them live in rural 
America. The overwhelming majority of 
Chicanos who can find work hold jobs as un- 
skilled or semi-skilled factory workers. 
The struggle of the Farah workers in Texas 
and New Mexico is similar to the long fight 
of the farmworkers for the same kinds of 
rights and protection that most other Ameri- 
can workers have. 

Mexican-Americans employed by the Farah 
Manufacturing Company have been exploited 
in the worst possible way. Their attempts 
to organize a union were met by the deter- 
mined opposition of the management. This 
deliberate company policy has prevented 
these people from achieving a better way 
of life with dignity and security. In 
early May, when some of the leading union 
activists were arbitraily fired, more than 
3,000 Farah workers walked off the job. 

In dealing with the strikers, the Farah 
Company has relied upon time-tested methods 
of corporate 'justice." Here are just a 
few examples . The company initially at- 
tempted to break the strike by importing 
workers from Mexico. Over 800 strikers 
have been arrested despite the fact that 
there has been no violence on the strikers 
part. Many were arrested in the middle of 
the night and were forced to pay the ex- 
horbitant bail of $400 per person. The 
Company then engaged in acts of intimida- 
tion, coercion and restraint against the 
strikers, such as the hiring of armed 
guards patrolling with vicious unmuzzled 
police dogs. The Federal Government has 
found the Farah Company guilty of unfair 
labor practices for firing union sympath- 
izers; however, the company continues to 
flout the law. Within a month after the 
strike was declared, twenty -four union 
supporters were fired in Victoria, Texas 

A nationwide boycott of Farah pants 
has been launched by the Amalgamated 
Clothing Workers of American and is sup- 
ported by the Citizens Committee for Jus- 
tice for Farah Workers. With the opening 
of school , a special appeal is being made 

students DOrt the boycott. As 

a group, students comprise a large segment 
of the jeans' consumers; student action, 
efore, could have a significant impact, 
jects are being set up all over the 
country to help the strikers. Literature 
is being distributed, tables are being set 
up on campuses , and campus newspapers are 
the stn

DORM INSULATION POLICY 

To the Editor: » 

We the residents of the third floor of 
Cline Dormitory are having our annual pro- 
blems with the air conditioning. The tem- 
perature inside the rooms varies between 
82 degrees (afternoon and late afternoon) 
to a low of about 77 at 1 am. Apparently 
this problem is inherent to the third floor 
since it was an "add-on" to the rest of 
the building. The. attic above our roooms 
varies between 140-150°; our rooms below 
the attic are separated by an uninsulated 
ceiling. 

Each year peonle bitch about the pro- 
blem. Each year someone comes and looks 
the situation over and explains the trouble. 
Each year it is agreed that something should 
be done about it . Each year around November 
the weather gets cooler and the problem is 
forgotten - until next year. How about it, 
can we have some decent air-conditioning? ,

Speaker's Corner 

WEALTH: THE NEW MORTAL SIN? 

by Jeff Daiell 

The great witch hunt continues. It 
has always been around, of course, led 
by various social, religious, and poli- 
tical leaders. Americans seem to respond 
to it especially in their politicians, 
and many politicians have achieved gTeat 
fame at it: Andy Jackson, William Jennings 
Bryan, Huey Long, and the Roosevelt cousins, 
Teddy and Franklin. Now a new Mather of the 
ballot box has stepped forward, his shrill 
and hysterical harangues against the victims 
currently criss-crossing the land. 

That man, of course, is George Mc- 
Govem, and the great witch hunt is the 
frenzied and perverted rage against the weal- 
thy. The wealthy, not because each is 
individually evil, or loathsome, or mali- 
cious, but because they are wealthy. 

The howl against the rich currently 
predominates McGovern's -speeches, just 
as his comparisons of American pilots to 
Nazi SS men did some months ago. Every 
time McGovem beats his Methodist breast, 
the heartburn caused by others ' wealth 
belches forth as flame from a dragon- - 
only the Senator casts himself as a copy 
as well as a namesake of St. George. 
(Naturally, his speeches are written in 
his campaign headquarters , not in his 
$110,000 home). 

This irrational hatred for those who 
hold great sources of wealth, however, is 



| JEMQUMJIM 




foinics" 



merely symptomatic of a much larger sick- 
ness : hatred of any kind of success . 
Whether it be expressed through McGovern's 
rabid demogoguery, or through raucous jeers 
to "Break up the Yankees" heard so often in 
the Age of Stengel, the small and bitter 
people of this world have always held that 
if they cannot--or will not-- achieve suc- 
cess , then neither must anyone else ; and 
this, my friends, is a desire so strong 
that they are willing to set in motion the 
naked, awesome power of the State (which 
depersonalizes their violence, and eases 
their consciences) to persecute those who 
have transgressed against their petty be- 
grudgery. Whether it is by theft (tax- 
ation) , repression (antitrust laws , pro- 
hibitions against types of trade, etc.), or 
other means of force, the malicious re- 
venge of the mindless failures of this world 
is ever at the ready to wreak vengeful havoc 
upon the dreams and achievements of the 
successful. 

This is an atavistic throw-back to Man's 
past; it has no place in any enlightened 
society. In order to achieve the glory which 
is Man's heritage and His rightful due-- 
that is, a rational world order--each indi- 
vidual must learn that each person has the 
right to his or her own destiny, and 
each individual must leam to feel neither 
jealousy of success nor pity of failure in 
others, but rather to devote his or her 
time and energy to the problems of Self; 
for only in that way can free and thinking 
! p'ersons operate in societal intercourse. 
This is why the Senator from South 
Dakota's savage and mindless lupine bayings 
against the rich are nothing less than bar- 
baric. George McGovem may call himself 
a "progressive" and be considered by 
others "radical", but in fict he harks back 
to the grim and dismal MiuJle Ages, when 
the accumulation of wealth served merely 
as a signal to two-legged jackals to hone 
their fangs and sharpen their claws. The 
sooner every adherent to even a minimally 
rational moral code recognizes this poli- 
tical harpie for what he truly is and re- 
jects him in loathing totality, the better 
off America will be, and, through us, the 
world . 



Senate Warns Absentees 

by Carol Bickers 

At its September 21 meeting the Senate dealt with everything from the upcoming elec- 
tions to the problem of Senate absences. 

On October 9, elections will be held in the SIB from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm for the follow- 
ing positions: Freshman Senators, Female Junior Senator, and Men's Judicial Board. Students 
will also be asked to vote at this time for Centenary Gent and Lady and to make nominations 

for the YONCOPIN Beauties. Petitions for the 

the changing of Gentlemanly Speaking , he may 
send his suggestions to the Student Life 
Committee in care of campus mail. 

Tommy Guerin noted that the Educational 
Policies and Standards Committee is consider- 
ing three major topics. In addition to 
studying Great Issues and the course offer- . 
in<js and credits in the college catalogue, 
the committee is also exploring Dr. W. W. 
Pate's and Dr. Walter Lowrey's suggestion 
that the time schedules be revised. Guerin 
urged anyone who would like to make a sug- 
gestion to the committee to contact one of 
its members . Student members of the commit- 
tee are Tommy Guerin, Barry Williams, and 
Barbara Bethell. 

Before closing the meeting Clark intro- 
duced the Senate advisers for the year. The 
advisers are Dr. Fergal Gallagher, Mr. Wesley 
Garvin, Dean G. Edwin Miller, and Mr. Charles 
E. Vetter. 

The Senate will hold its next meeting at 
12:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 1 in the Caf. 



Senate offices are due in today by 4:30 cm 
in the Senate Room, SUB 207. 

After a very brief discussion of the 
absence problem, Clark pointed out that the 
absentee rule would go into effect as of 
Thursday's meeting. According to by-law XII 
of the SGA constitution; "No Senator shall 
be absent from more than two meetings during 
the semester. On the third one, the Senator 
is dropped from the roll. The only exception 
being a credited class meeting or illness, in 
which case the Senator is responsible for 
sending a proxy without vote." 

It was further stipulated by Clark that 
any Senate member who was more than ten min- 
utes late to a meeting would be counted ab- 
sent. 

In other action the Senate voted to 
delete by-law XV which dealt with the select- 
ions of the Men's and Women's Boards by the 
Senate. Clark, in explaining why the by-law 
should be deleted, noted that the Senate was 
becoming too involved in Judicial Board fun- 
ctions as long as the by-law was in effect. 

Reports were also made from members of 
the Student Life and Educational Policies 
and Standards Committees. Vice-President 
Sandy Bogucki , in reporting on Student Life, 
noted that several committees were being ap- 
pointed to study such matters as the Honor 
Court, the criteria for the selection of stu- 
dents to Who's Who , and Gentlemanly Speaking .

THE OONCLOHEPATE 



September 29, 1972 



ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD 



Electric Moments, Black Humor 



By Cece Russell 

"I guess essential to this 
play is some understanding of 
Hamlet; so I might say, if you 
have the general idea that 
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern 
are Hamlet's friends and they 
have been called in to see if 
Hamlet is crazy and the king 
orders them to take Hamlet to 
England, if you know that about 
the play, you will understand 
what's going on." 

Doug Wilson 
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead , 
the next play at flarjorie Lyons, is sche- 
duled to open Thursday* Following tra- 
dition, those who are involved in tech- 
nical aspects of the production are be- 
ginning to wonder if the work will ever 
get done, and the performers are ner- 
vous and under constant pressure. Never- 
theless, the feeling is one of excitement 
on the part of everybody involved. 
BEHIND THE SCENES 
The technical aspect of a production is 
usually divided into crews of workers which 
include light crews , sound crews , produc- 
tion crews , and costume crews . The Scene 
Designer and Light Designer heads these 
crews, followed by the technical director 
and stage manager. 

C. L. Holloway (Kip) handles both scene 
and light designing for Rosencrantz/Dead . 
In an interview, Kip stressed that the main 
Durpose of a scene design is to create a 
particular mood or atmosphere that will aid 
the scriDt as well as the actor. "For 
Rosencrantz and Guil dens tern, " he stated, 
"1 have tried to create a space staging 
type idea that is merely suggestive of 
both exterior and interior, either one 
existing at any time, and a place where 
we can create an illusion of time." 

Kip hopes to create a similar effect 
with lights. He plans to use strong, 
contrasting colors in order to achieve 
the "electric moments" that this scriDt 
calls for. 

THE TECH CREW 
Working directly under Kip is Bob 
Hickman, the technical director and stage 
manager. According to Bob, as technical 
director he is to work directly with the 
scene designer, organize production crews, 
and organize tech calls. Says Bob, "In 
this case the scene designer (Kip) is also 
the director, so I get to work with both, 
which is interesting." As opposed to the 
technical director's tasks, "the stage 
manager's jobs are to organize stage crews, 
moving crews, and light crews. ...He is re- 
sponsible for making sure the proos , if any 
are in place and the stage is in the proper 
setting." 

ON THE OTHER HAND 
Those who are involved on the perform- 
ing end of the production have a different 
set of worries and problems. People who 
are involved on this level include the 
director, the actors, and, in this case, 
the original score writer. 

In addition to being the Scene Designer 
and the Light Designer, C. L. Holloway is 
directing this show! "As far as the 'C. L. 
Holloway Presents' position that I manage 
to find myself in," he says, "I reallv 
don't mind because last time I had to 
do the costumes too! But, I'll have to 
admit right now that I wish I had just 
a little bit more time to get it done in." 

The primary reason that Kin chose to 
direct Rosencrantz and Guildenstern is its 
preoccunation with death. Mn views death 
as "a point where past and future catch up," 
and he finds it easy to relate to a partic- 
ular line in which Guildenstern says' that 
death is not being. "The fear of not being 
or ceasing to exist would be a great fear 
for me." 

BUCK HUflOR 
KiD, whose major aim is to produce a 
funny play dealing with black humor, works 
with a large gToup of people who are not 
theatre majors in this play. Thus far he 




has not regretted it 

Kip has chosen to cast a local actor, 
Jack Harrington, to take the part of The 
Player. "It is an extremely difficult 
role and needs an older, mature approach. 
...Harrington, who is very able, is bring- 
ing to the role and to the cast just exact - 

ly the attributes that I think The Player 
needs." 

Kip also uses fliss Barbara Acker to 
play the part of Gertrude. 'The reason- 
ing for this," is he says, "I wanted very 
much for people to see this person's 
acting ability. ...Gertrude is an extremely 
small role but fliss Acker approaches the 
role with insight and is creating a chara- 
cter of amazing depth. 

Doug Wilson, a sophomore from Oklahoma 
City, is to be seen as Rosencrantz. Ac- 
cording to Doug his character has common 
sense, but he is slow in responding to 
situations. Rosencrantz tends to get 
emotional, but in the face of crisis, he 
is usually calm. 



Joe Allain, who will portray Guilden- 
stern, is a junior from New Orleans, and 
says his character is analytical, logical, 
quick witted and more preceptive than 
Rosencrantz. Joe and Doug are enjoying 
working in the play, and they recommend it 
to college students. Says Doug, "It's 
almost like Cox's philosophy or aesthetics 
class." 

David Leone wrote the original score 
for the production: 'There will be im- 
portant music themes to represent the ?c 
characters of "osencrantz and Guildenstern 
and other major characters and incidental 
musical themes which could be any period- 
sounding."

Student Life' Minutes 

The committee on Student Life met in 
the P.. E. Smith Building at 10:40 a.m. 
Tuesday, September 19, 1972. Members 
present were Sandy Bogucki, Taylor Caffery, 
Pick Clark, Jeff Hendricks, Mike Marcell, 
Cindy v east, Marl'. Dulle, Webb Pomeroy, 
Robert Ed Taylor, Eddy Miller, Shirley 
Rawlinson, and General Hardy. 

Robert Ed announced at the onenino of 
the meeting that Mike Marcell has been 
appointed chairman of the sub -committee 
to review Gentlemanly Sneaking and suggest 
changes for the handbook as a whole, 
Working with Mike will -be Eddy Miller and 
Mark. Dulle. The sub-committee will be 
reporting back to the Student Life Commit- 
tee. 

The matter of Who's Who was brought 
im next. Nominations will be made by 
the ^acuity and then chosen by October 12th. 
Shirley Rawlinsnn was appointed chairman o^ 
a sub-committee to select a process for 
selection o f these students, suggestions for 
criteria for selection, and a method for 
receiving the nominations. Sandy Bogucki 
and Cindy v e ast will assist Shirley on this 
sub-committee. 

Chairman Taylor then asked for discus- 
sion on the meaning of IVho's "/ho. This 
broucht uo the question of whether we should 
have a 3.0 grade requirement. It was the 
oninion of some of the members that the 
grade point should not have as much emphasis 
as it does. There should be a more well- 
rounded criteria. It was also brought un 
that the main advantage of 'Vho's Who was in- 
creasing possibilities for a better job. 
These ideas and suggestions along with 
others were directed to Shirley's committee. 

The next discussion pertained to the 
review of the Honor System. Discussion 
followed as to what our responsibility is 
concerning this natter. The committee also 
deliberated on a method of grasping hold of 
this nroblem and examining it. After manv 
sueoestions it was decided that Mark Dulle, 
who is also a faculty advisor to the Honor 
Court, would ser-e as chairman of a review 
sub-committee of the Honor System with Jeff" 
Hendricks, Rick Clark, and Ceneral Hardy as 
members of the s.ib-committee. Some sort of 
lonp-term review, maybe involving a survey of 

students, faculty, and administration, 
will take nlace. 

It was announced that the executive mem- 
bers of Student Senate will be allowed in 
the faculty meeting to nresent their nro- 
nosal on September 22, 1972. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Cindy Yeast

GREASE' ON BROADWAY 



The British Blues 



British blues is an interesting genre 
that has just about run its course. Its 
origins go back to Alexis Korner in 1958, 
out it didn't become a popular style until 
the R§B boom of 1964 . The groups involved 
in that scene , including the Stones , 
Animals, Who, and Yardbirds, became hugely 
popular and drifted more towards straight 
rock § roll, convincing the purists that 
they had "sold out." These purists in- 
cluded the likes of Eric Clapton, who 
left the Yardbirds in disgust when "For 
Your Love" was released. The blues in 
England became a real cult for a few 
years (the recordings of these cultists 
can be heard on RCA's "Anthology of 
British Blues" series) until about 1968 
when a new generation of musicians spark- 
ed a worldwide blues rivival . 

Of the groups that came out of the 
1968-70 blues craze, nearly all started 
with faithful copies of old standards, 
fooled around with highenergy amphetamine 
blues for awhile, and eventually, like 
John Mayall, tried to express their music 
and ended up sounding like every other 
introspective rock group. 

This rather sketchy history of British 
blues leads me to mention the fact that 
four of these groups have just issued new 
albums . Imagination Lady by Chicken Shack 
(Deram 18063) is bound to be one of the 
last nails in the coffin of blues purism. 
The only old song is B.B. King's "Crying 
Won't Help You Now," but all the rest 
are similarly weighted down with leaden 12- 
bar structures and sludgy, bored playing. 
Excessive drum solos lead to one-note 
guitar variations just as inevitably as 
they did on every 1968 album. This' kind 
of stuff is expendable today. 

Savoy Brown fare a bit better on 
Hellhound Train (Parrot 71052) . Having 
gone through many personnel changes and 
switch from the interplay of two lead 
guitars on their early records to a fo- 
cus on lead singer Dave Walker, this 
(their seventh album) presents them at 
what is probably another turning point. 
There are a couple of standard blues 
numbers, plus the title song, a nine-minute 
epic loosely based, I believe, on a 1959 
horror story by Robert Bloch. It's most- 
ly instrumental, getting faster and fast- 
er and ending in a big crash of silence. 
Their last few albums have been full of 
stuff like this, and we've heard plenty 
of it from other groups too. 

Their future direction, to me, seems 

songs, "Doin' fine" and 

"If I could See and 2nd." The former is 

light out of the Creedence Clearwater 

good-time thumper mold, and the latter a 

■m rock f, roll piece based on Chuck 
Berry. Walker has a voice uncannily like 
John Fogerty's, but more cultured; he 
could have been a great pop singer. He 

mm out to be a great rock singer, 
ly Borwn's best hope at this 
point . 

Fleetwood Mac started as the strictest 
of blues interpreters, went through the 
energy thing and then the oldies re- 
ig, lost their core when founder 
Peter Green went solo and Jeremy -pencer 
holied out. Their next album, Future 
Games , was received badly because of its 
low energy ; . since been re- 

cognized as a beautiful, subtle album. Now, 
on Bare Trees (Reprise 2080), they are 
back with a return to rock, but still on a 
gentle, subdued plane. "Child of Mine" 
is the best example of this, a pleasantly 
moving song but without any real drive. 
Danny Kirwan, who now dominates the group, 
was never a rocker anyway- -he does better 
on quiet melodic songs, such as "Sunny 
Side of Heaven," which sounds a lot like 
"Jewel F\ f ra n the Kiln House 




See Ya Later, Alligator! 



By Cherry Payne 

The Broadhurst Theatre on Broadway is 
nresently reverberating with the sounds 
of Bill Haley and the Comets, Chuck Berry, 
Elvis Presley and even La "em Baker. 
The Broadhurst, directly across from Sardi's 
and The David Frost Show, is the Broadway 
home of Grease , a musical which opened off- 
Broadway in February of this year. Only 
this summer did the show find itself located 
in what is probably the most famous theatre 
district in the world. 

As one enters the theatre he is engulfed 
by the music and verbiage of an original 
radio show of the fifties in which the D..T. 
continually announces to all those duck- 
tailed, bobby soxed kids that "Rock and roll 
is here to stay." Thus, before a myriad of 
nosters of Ricky Nelson, Vaseline Hair Tonic 
and Vacutex Black-head Extractors , the stage 
for Grease is set. 

Beginning with the reunion of the Class 
of 1959 at Rydell High School , Grease takes 
a humorous look at the adolescent subcul ture 
of the fifties era. Opening at the Rydell 
High School cafeteria, the "cool kids" 
(Burger Palace Boys and The Pink Ladies) 
bring to life those fifties through rele- 
vant nhrases such as "None of your bees- 
wax," and "See you later alligator." And 
of course, no self-respecting musical of 
this time would be without its gang fights. 
There is one- -with none other than the 
Flamin' Dukes. 

Throughout the nlay the audience is con- 
tinually bombarded with music and choreogra- 
nhy which is a direct variation upon the 
original dances and music of this era. The 
lyrics, I might add, are an adequate re- 
flection of the thought of the day. "Alone 
at a Drive- In Movie," sung by Danny Zuko 
(Barry Bostwick) and the Burger Palace Boys 
is the lament of a lonely teenager as he 
sings to his girlfriend after she no longer 



wants to go steady with him. 
I'm all alone 
At the drive-in movie 
It's a feelin' that ain't too groovy 
Watchin' werewolves without you 
Gee, it*s no fun 
Drinkin^beer in the back, seat 
All alone just ainM; too neat 
At the Dassion pit, without you 

And when the intermission elf 

Moves the clock's hands 

While he's eating everything 

Sold at the stand 

'Vhen there's one minute to go 

Till the lights go down low 

I'll be holding the speaker knobs 

Missing you so 

I can't believe it 

Hnsteamed wind™^ I can see through 

Might as well uc in an igloo 

'Cause the heater doesn't work... 

As good as you 
Other musical spoofs include "Mooning" 
sung by Roger (Walter Bobbie) and Jan (Gam 
Steohans) , discussing the art of "mooning" 
as in shooting. Another, sung by Betty 
Rizzo (Joy Garrett) explores the sexual 
mores of the day in a song entitled "Look 
at Me, I'm Sandra Dee" (I can't go to bed 
'til I'm pronerly wed. . .) . 

Thus, Greas e takes a look at the issues 
facing the youth" of the fifties by means of 
the "Pink Ladies," Burger Palace Boys," and, 
of course, the ''Flamin' Dukes." For those 
of us who had older brothers and sisters , 
Urease can be a real nostlagia trin. For 
Grease is to the fifties what "Hair" was to 
the sixties . 

Grease is a must to all those who are 
the least bit interested in the nostalgic 
movement. ri r> i n the words of Douglas 

: of the New York Daily News , "Grease is 
a tonic." 



album. There's some Traffic-like flute 
jazz stuff on "The Ghost" and. an unsuccess- 
ful attempt at lie<ivy rock on "Danny's 
Chant," also the reading of a poem, 
"Thoughts On a Grey Day," by a certain 
Mrs. Scarrot . Altogether another pleasant 
album by a group that is just beginning to 
find its new identity as practitioners of 
the soft, pretty rock songs Kirwan is best 
suited to. 

Of these groups , Ten Years After has 
weathered the passage of time best of all. 
They are now one of the best heavy rock 
bands around, as evidenced by their recent 
single, 'Baby Won't You Let Me Rock and Roll 
You," and like Led Zeppelin, if they can 
succeed in becoming a bit more disciplined, 
they may end up one of the best rock (, roll 
bands of the '70s. Alvin Lee 6 Company (De- 
ram 18064) is a set of unreleased tracks 



from 1968, when the blues still figured 
heavily in their repertoire. "Standing At 
the Crossroads" was a Cream standard that 
year, but I like this version better. 
"Boogie On" similarly stacks up better than 
Canned Heat's brand of refricd boogie, and 
the only real blues bummer here is "Rock 
Your Mama," though even it has enough 
dynamic tension to save the day. Aside 
from "Portable People," a failed attempt 
at a folk song, the rest is great. 
Especially "Hold Me Tight," which is as 
raw in its tightly-controlled frenzy as 
Carl Perkins was at his best. 

White blues may be an exhausted trend, 
but it appears that our "backgrou 1" in 
blues may lead to a new era of vitality 
in rock 6 rol 1 -if not by these g-.-jps, 
then through others who have been influenced 
by them. Let's hope so.

This review is written by a close

much a rock fanatic as I am-nrobably 
more, so. He's from Little Rock and 
worked the summer there for KLAZ

Mark Klingman 

MOOGY 

What I want to know is : HON COME THIS 
ALBUM IS SO LONG GETTING HEPE? I have been 
following Klingman's tareer (as well as was 
oossible, anyway) for the last counle of 
years and, therefore, eagerly awaiting the 
release of this album. Mark's song "Kind- 
ness" was recorded by Johnny Winter And on 
their first album. He nlayed on, and 
wrote some of the songs, on the James Cot- 
ton Blues Sand album Taking Genre of Busi- 
ness. However, the noint in his career 
that really made me aware of him, was his 
oarticipation on Todd Rundgren's album 
.Something/Anything? ( which I nominate 
Tor Album of the Year) . Moogy wrote 
'Dust in the Wind", a cut from Pundgren's 
albun, which is undoubtedly one of the 
best songs on that album. 

So much for background information. 
I'nnot sure exactly why I'm disappointed 
with this album. It's nrobably because 
I exoected it to be like a new Todd R. 
album (the two being so closely associated) . 
This is not to say that the Pundgren in- 
fluence isn't (because it is very evident), 
or to say that this is not a good album. 
Actually, Klingman comes off more as a 
cross between Leon Russel and Pundgren. 
Side 1 onens with a funky song, "I 
("an Love," which is Dretty good for open- 
ers. The version of "Kindness" included 
here, has a little more country flavor 
than the J. Winter And rendition, but 
it's still a great song. "Crying in the 
Sunshine" is definitely the best song 
on the album. It includes a knocked-out 
vocal by Pundgren and a raunchy sax solo, 

' it s~ays commerrial enough to be a 
single, floogy, Todd R. and N.D. Smart III 
share the vocal chores on "Kilpatrick's 
Defeat. 1 ' Write up another great song. 
Just a Sinner" sounds reminiscent of 
Moody's work on Something/Anything? 
Ruidgren proves , again, how great he 
really is on guitar on this cut. 'To-

Hitch-hiking and The Man 



By John Brandi/AFS 

"Look, John, I'm trying to help you. 
Now, I'm giving you this warning and I'm 
telling you to grab a bus outta this 
state before we catch you again because 
if we nab you another time you'll be in 
jail until Monday and if you don't have 
any money you'll stay there until some- 
body can post your bail. And if no one 
posts your bail, you're screwed, John. 
So I' m warning you. I'm trying to 
help you/ it's for your own protection , 
John. Cars hit people like you all 
the time; why, just the other night we 
scraped a couple of packers off the 
interstate and lifted them to the morgue. 
So I'm warning you, John." 

. Somehow, the whining speed of this 

polished and starched man in blue doesn't 

quite ring true. How can he be helping 

me if he's throwing me off the road, 

telling me to catch a bus or take a 

back road (gravel and traveled only 

by farmers and local milkmen) ISO miles 

to the Kansas border? And since I've 

only $20 to get to New York, how can 

I spend $17 of that just to leave Colorado? 

My hitchhiking days started in the 
butch-haircut innocence of the late 
fifties, thumbing truckers out of LA to 
the Mojave Desert towns, to Reno, Lovelock, 
Boise, and back. 

Like most suburban boys, I'd also 
thumb to and from school, or to the beach, 
or occasionally to the mountains. I'd 
go on long rips to get out of the mash 
and clatter of city life- -sometimes just 
for kicks, to see how far I could get. 

There was no one waiting for me on 
the other end, nobody to stop me with 
apple pie or stuff a few peaches in my 
pack. I'd turn around, dead broke, 
and hitch back home. 

Church couldn't hold me, or take 
me into myself, so on Sunday morning 
I'd be out on the freeway ramp, salami 
and rye under my shirt and a pair of 
trunks buttoned beneath my Levi's, en 
route to Malibu or Santa Monica. My 
parents, God save them, would be back 
in the varnished pews , praying for my 
life and the forgiveness of my sins. 

I hadn't even a rucksack in those 
days , only a bundle wrapped under my 
arm like a true vagabond. "Organized" 
hitching hadn't come about yet, so if you 
looked freaky, you could count on no 
ride. 

Nowadays, hitching is an art of 
travel enjoyed no longer as something 
"different" by an esoteric few; but bv 
thousands of youths each day, making 
their ways cross -country to hemes, 
universities , communes , 
religious colonies, abortion 
clinics. festivals, and ant i -war 

demonstrations. 

The road is not a lonely place. 
Interstate highways (1-70, 1-40, 
--no Ion called 

or "The Denver Route" or 'The Lin 
Highway" rnb- 

ing down other peoDle , sharin

and brotherly interchange, or just 
"simple" people out looking for work-- 
hitching because they've no money for 
a car or because they think there 're 
too many automobiles for too few people 
and are determined to boycott the car 
culture by buying a pair of shoes and 
polishing their thumbnails . 

But hitchhiking — and hitchhikers — 
are in danger. Thumbers need protection - 
but not the Man's kind of "protection," 
where he writes you a warning ticket 
while checking your eyeballs through 
his mirrored shades , seeking bloodshot 
rings or dilated pupils . 

In states as strict as Ohio or 
Colorado, where you have to possess a 
sort of transcendental power to thumb 
a ride, you must stand opposite the 
traffic going your way and act the 
idiot , hands in pockets trying to 
meditate a ride on the other side of 
the interstate highway; in other 
words, hitchhiking is illegal there. 
The penalty can be anything from a 
$25 to $100 fine to a jail sentence-- 
and there's always a gross delay in 
cross-country travel even if you're not 
busted. (A thorough coverage of the 
pedestrian laws in all the states, 
plus some pretty gruesome tales of bad 
rides caught in-between good one, comes

Mastering Your Head, Hand, and Heart 



Swami Rama was all wired up with 
electroencephalogram and electrocardio- 
gram leads. Technicians were manning their 
instruments. The swami went through some 
of the rigmarole of his own. When he was 
ready he called out the prearranged signal, 
"That's all!" and did a solarplexus lock. 
The EKG tracing of his heart beats changed 
immediately. They became much smaller and 
extremely rapid (300 beats per minute). The 
swami kept it this way for about half a 
minute then brought his beats back to nor- 
mal . Elmer Green, the psychologist in 
charge of the investigation, took the trac- 
ing to an EKG expert. "This is an atrial 
flutter- -what happened to this patient?" 
said the expert. "He should have fainted 
or perhaps died!" The swami had stopped 
and restarted the blood flow through his 
heart . 

Such are the goings-on at the Psych- 
physiology Laboratory of the Menninger 
Foundation in Topeka, Kansas, where Elmer 
Green heads this lab and his wife, Alyce, 
is training director of the Voluntary 
Controls Project. The Green team described 
their research recently at a conference in 
San Francisco on "Psychic Healing and Self- 
Healing" sponsored by the Association for 
Humanist Psychology. Since 1964 they have 
been studying voluntary control of the 
autonomic (so-called involuntary) nervous 
system. 

Swami Rama has phenomenal autonomic 
control. He can, for instance (besides 
stopping his blood flow) , control the 
blood flow in his hand so that the temper- 
ature on one part of his handrises while 
the temperature on another part of his 
hand just two inches away is falling. 
(This has been measured as a temperature 
difference of 9 degrees Centi -grade.) 
He says he does this by dilating one artery 
while constricting another. But how does 
he do that? The swami says somewhat 
mysteriously, "All of the body is in the 
mind, but not all. of the mind is in the 
body." While trying to understand his 
worldview, the Greens are also studying the 
techniques the swami learned from his guru. 
Some of these techniques (such as breathing 
methods) are used by the Greens along with 
the biogeedback instruments to teach people 
to control some of their own autonomic 
functions . 

Elmer Green described a spectrum of 
consciousness associated with the control 
of the autonomic functions. At the low end 
of this spectrum is hypnosis (little con- 
sciousness and an "outside controller, the

temperature had gone up. or not . The therm- 
ister showed that it had gone down . Green 
explained that this is quite typical re- 
sponse to the first attempt and people 
frequently have the temperature of their 
hand going the wrong direction until they 
give up and say, "Well I just can't do it." 
Then it happens --the temperature starts 
going up. 

The person reading the thermister tells 
them this and this bit of feedback starts 
the feedback part of the training. The stu- 
dent is then allowed to watch the dial of 
the thermister himself and his control over 
temperature in his hand is sharpened. But, 
the Greens warn, he should not use the 
thermister very long for his control can 
come to depend oh it ! 

The Greens report that they have had 
very good results teaching migrain head- 
ache sufferers to make their headaches go 
away by raising the tertperature of their 
hands. Such a person typically has an im- 
balance in bloodflow so that the head is 
too warm and the hands and feet too cold. 
Raising hand temperature seems to reset this 
balance. Similarly, they are teaching 
muscle-tension feedback control for re- 
lieving muscle-tension headaches. 

The Greens were also very excited about 
their work in alpha and theta brain wave 
control. They use a feedback device that 
emits a high tone when the subject is 
producing alpha waves (around ten cycles 
per second) and a lower tone when the sub- 
ject is producing theta waves (around six 
cycles per second) . They are especially 
interested in the theta waves state be- 
cause they associate it with a day-dream 
like reverie (the hypnogogic state) that one 
usually encounters just before falling 
asleep and just before he is complete- 
ly awake. They find that this theta state 
is conducive to creativity. The many 
students whom they have trained report in- 
creased percept iveness , vividness of 
dreams, better concentration, memory and even 
elation. The Greens are now doing "double 
blind" controlled experiments to see if 
these reports can be substantiated more 
objectively. 

There is a connection between this 
state of reverie and control of the auto- 
nomic functions for it is just in this state 
that control of autonomic functions is 
learned. Or anything else. For other work- 
ers have found a correlation in rats and hu- 
mans between theta waves and learning.

Sports on TV 

Tomorrow begins another full weekend of 
sports on TV. In the college football game 
of the week, nationally-ranked Washington, 
led by Sonny Sixkiller, will host Illinois 
in a 2:30 clash on Channel 3. This broad- 
cast will be preceded on ABC at 1 p.m. by 
Wide World of Sports which will feature the 
Trenton "200" Indianapolis Car Race from 
Trenton, N.J. Also, on Saturday, NBC will 
carry the St. Louis-Chicago major league 
baseball game on Channel 6 at 1 p.m. 

Pro football dominates the tube Sunday 
afternoon with 3 games . Action begins at 
12:30 on Channel 12 with the Dallas Cow- 
boys going for their third straight of the 
young season against the Green Bay Packers 
in Milwaukee. Meanwhile, NBC will air a 
doubleheader beginning at 1 p.m. In the 
first game the Houston Oilers will be 
seeking their first win against the un- 
beaten N.Y. Jets who posted an impressive 
win over the Colts last Sunday. Channel 6 
will then shift to the battle between 
Miami and Minnesota for a battle between 
two of pro football's top teams. 

This weekend's action will be completed 
ftonday night with ABC's coverage of the 
Phila'delphia-N.Y. Giants clash. Frank Gif- 
ford, Dandy Don Meredith, and Howard Cosell 
will cover this game, which matches two 
teams which have yet to win a game in the 
young season.

Bengals and Bulldogs 



by Tan Marshall 
Question: What does a crowd of 67,510 in 
Baton Rouge and one of 19,200 in Ruston have 
in common? 

Answer: The crowds in their respective 
stadia- -Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge and 
Aillett Stadium in Ruston--are both 
watching teams that rank in the 'Top Ten" 
in the national wire services' weekly rat- 
ings. 

The teams those 90,000 paid to see- 
the Louisiana State Tigers and the Louisi- 
ana Tech Bulldogs ---also have something 
in common. As a matter of fact, the Tigers 
and Bulldogs have a great deal in common. 
Consider the following. 

To begin with, both are undefeated so 
far this season. Tech, at 3-0, is ranked 
third in both the AP and UPI college divi- 
sion ratings of the week of September 18; 
LSU, 2-0 going into Saturday night's con- 
test with Wisconsin, is ninth in the major 
college rankings . In those first five 
games, the two clubs have outscored their 
opponents by a 147-61 margin. 

Tech's list of conquests includes South- 
western Louisana, whom they defeated 7-0 
at Lafayette; heavily -favored Southern 
Mississippi, a 33-14 victim in Hattiesburg 
and McNeese State--the co-favorite along 
with Tech to win the Southland Confer- 
ence title- -whom the Bulldogs demolished 
34-17 before the aforementioned 19,200 
faithful in Ruston. 

LSU on the other hand has played both 
of its season -opening encounters within 
the friendly confines of Tiger Stadium- - 
dubbed "Death Valley" by unsuspecting op- 
nonents who have heard about the Tigers' 
den but don't really believe it until they 
have seen (or more accurately, HEARD) the 
inside of Tiger Stadium. First up was 
University of the Pacific, who actually 
jumped out to a 7-0 lead on a blocked punt 
early in the first quarter before succumb- 
ing 31-13. Then it was Texas ASM, who fell 
by 42-17 a week later before the ever pres- 
ent 67,000 plus. 

But all of this is actually no big sur- 
prise. Ouite the contrary, big things 
were and are expected of both teams this 
fall. Sports Illustrated , in its pre- 
season college football issue, tagged LSU 
as Numero Uno--the Number" One team in the 



country, the team to beat. In his evalua- 
tion of LSU, SI prognosticator Dan Jenkins 
said, "The anticipation of an opportunity 
not to be. missed may be well-nigh unbear- 
able on the Louisiana State University 
campus in Baton Rouge this fall. Possibly 
not for another five years will the Bengals 
see the prize of being ranked No. 1 college 
team in the country dangled at such close 
range." That just about says it all, Dan. 

As for Tech, Jenkins saw the Southland 
Conference as a two-way race between the 
Bulldogs and McNeese State (Lake Charles) . 
But LTU took care of that last Saturday 
night, as the "Game of the Year" came early. 

Both clubs still have tough games ahead 
of them- -especially LSU. Besides Wisconsin, 
the Tigers still must contend with Ole Miss, 
Alabama and surprising Tulane. Anything 
could happen. But I'd put my money on high 
national rankings and post-season bowl 
games for both the Tigers and the Bulldogs . 

And I bet you thought cats and dogs 
didn't have anything in common! 
SPORTS NOTES- -Tickets are now on sale for 
the traditional State Fair clash that pits 
Tech against Northwestern State University. 
This year, the contest is slated for Satur- 
day, October 21. It's a perennial sellout, 
so get your tickets early if you plan to 

attend The 'Came of the Year" in Shreve- 

nort-Bossier prep football might be Satur- 
day night as preseason District 1-AAAA title 
favorites Capt. Shreve and Airline tangle 
at Capt. Shreve Stadium. Last year Shreve 
won the game 26-21 when the Gators scored 
on a touchdown pass in the final 30 seconds. 
Also featured will be the two top passers 
in the league- -Steve Haynes of Airline and 

Terry Brown of Shreve NBA preseason 

basketball (that's right, BASKETBALL) is 
well underway as the teams tune up for next 
month's season openers. Tuesday night it's 
"Showtime" again in Baton Pouge as Pete 
Maravich and the Atlanta Hawks engage the 
Houston Rockets in an NBA contest in the 
LSU Assembly Center. The 14,500 seat 
Assembly Center- -also called "The House 
that Pete Built" and "Pete's Palace" (it 
was supposed to be ready for Pete's senior 
year at LSU, but wasn't) --is an almost cer- 
tain sellout, with 5,000 ducats sold by mail 
order before the tickets went on public

PISTOL PETE INTERVIEW 



Busting the Blue Laws 

by Sam Hill 

It shall be unlawful for any person to perform any of the following acts between the hours of 
2:30 am. and 7 a.m., or on Sunday after 2:30 a.m. in any place where alcoholic beverages are sold 

(1) To display or allow to be displayed to the view of the public any whiskey, beer or alco- ' 
holic beverages after the bottle has been opened, in any bottle, can, glass, cup, vessel or article 
of any nature. «»*•-* wj.= 

(2) To consume or allow the consumption of alcoholic beverages, when the establishment i« 
to the general public. 

Section 3-13 of the City Code of Ordinances 



open 



"I think they should be turned red." Thus, the 
the blue laws of Shreveport are expressed. Interes 
taking a rather lenient stand concerning Section 3- 
relation to one group. 

Last Sunday Mr. Thrifty Discount Liquor 
sponsored a wine-tasting festival within the 
city limits of Shreveport at the Convention 
Center. CONGLOMERATE reporters attended in 
order to discover the attitudes of the festival- 
goers, research the background of blue laws in 
Shreveport, and sip a little wine. 

Yet, due to recent controversy concerning 
Section 3-13 of the City Code, the reporters, 
with camera, tape player and general noisiness in 
tow, seemed to be a source of some discomfort on 
the part of the officials pf the festival (as 
evidenced by several inquiries as to why we 
wanted this picture or to talk to the "invited 
guests") . 

According to a strict interpretation of the 
City Code of Ordinances, the event itself was 
illegal. This question was raised last week to 
the city officials and the mayor, but it was 
decided that the festival could be held if ad- 
mission was gained by invitation only. An "in- 
vitation" was acquired by means of going to a 
Thrifty Liquor Store and making a "donation" of 
one dollar (the donations were to go to the 
Heritage School for Children with Learning Dis- 
abilities) . Furthermore, donations were being 
accepted at the door, whereupon entrance to the 
festival was allowed. 

Since the festival itself, according to 
officials, was successful, it seemed to be a 
most opportune time to interview some of the 
people of Shreveport concerning feelings about 
the blue laws. Of the people interviewed at 
the wine festival (obviously not the best 
place to take an honest survey of the attitudes 
of the citizens of Shreveport toward this ques- 
tion) , the overwhelming majority supported re- 
pealing Section 3-13. Only one' was in favor 
of the blue laws as they stand concerning this

sentiments of another resident concerned about

The Dormitory Decision: 
No, Says Dr. John Allen 

by Taylor Caffery 
Dr. John H. Allen made a decision this week 
concerning the dormitory visitation hours re- 
quested by Centenary students. The decision 
was : no . 

The controversy began during the summer 
when Dr. Allen wrote to student's parents ' 
informing them that the liberal hours of last 
spring would be cut back to two hours dailv 
Once back on campus the students were restless 
participating during the past few weeks in peti- 
tion campaigns, midnight rallies, pantv raids 
and various other measures designed to' draw ' 
attention to their desire for a return to the 
hours which they claim worked well, with little 
complaint from students, parents or administra- 
tors, throughout the spring semester The 
events drew to a climax Tuesday at a packed 
meeting of the Committee on Student Life. 

Early in the semester, acting on the be- 
lief that Dr. Allen wished them to "go through 
channels," the Student Senate passed a resolu- 
tion favoring the return of last spring's hours 
and sent it to the joint facultv-student-ad- 
ministrative Committee on Student Life, which 
also endorsed it and sent it to the faculty 

In a meeting reported in last week's CON- 
GLOMERATE, the faculty voted to keep hands off 
any control over non-academic student life 
a move interpreted as favorable by student' 
leaders . 

Then, Monday afternoon, Senate President Rick 
Clark met with Dr. Allen in the president's 
Hamilton Hall office to receive his decision 
"Exactly, he said, 'I can't live with your

Freshman Campaign For Senate Begins 



by John Wiggin 

The campaign for freshman senator has 
begun. From a faceless mass of Freshmen, 
the faces, the personalities, of the can- 
didates emerge. Though the personalities 
differ greatly, one candidate summed it 
up by categorizing herself not as a Fresh- 
man, but Freshperson. The candidates are 
young, enthusiastic, and possibly a bit 
naive. They are bold enough to take stands 
on the important issues facing Centenary 
today . 

All students, not only freshmen, can 
vote in Monday's election (8-4 in the Sub), 
because Judicial Board, WSGA, Centenary Lady 
and Gent, and YONCOPIN Beauty contests are 
also to be decided. 

The candidates officially entered the 
running Friday, the deadline for submit- 
ting their platforms and petitions. Qua- 
lifying for the freshman girl's race were 
Karen Stephenson, Jonna Jones, and Mary 
Jane Peace. The freshman boys who qualified 
were Tracy Howard, Jim Morris, and Joey 
Lacoste. Holly Hess was the only candidate 
who qualified for the Junior girl's seat on 
the Senate. The junior race is being held 
because the elected junior senator, Terry 
Martin, did not return to school this year. 

Monday, a meeting was held by Barry 
Williams, head of the Senate elections com- 
mittee, to inform the candidates about limi- 
tations on the display of campaign material. 
The freshmen candidates who atended the meet- 
ing were Mary Jane Peace, Jim Morris, Joey 
Lacoste, and Jonna Jones. 

Banners and posters, Williams said, were 
limited to a definite number and size, and 
were not to go up until 2:00 pm Wednesday. 
The candidates were also informed that they 
would be assessed $25 for every handbill 
found on campus that pertains to their cam- 
paign. All publicity must be removed from 
the polling area, inside the Sub, by 9:00 am 
Monday, and all publicity must be removed 
from campus within 24 hours after the elect- 
ion. Violations will be subject to fine. 

There was discussion during the meeting 
on the subject of freshman campaign speeches. 
A comment was made that no one shows up for 
campaign speeches. A comment was then made 
that last year people did come to the speech- 
es , but the candidates didn't. A decision 
was reached to hold speeches and/or question 
and answer sessions Wednesday. 

Freshman campaigns are usually very 
stereotyped. Platforms tend to be much the 
same, and issues aren't usually the deter- 
mining factor of victory or defeat. He who 
can make himself recognized is most often 
the victor, no matter for what he stands. 

In short interviews with the candidates, 
I attempted to discern why they chose to run 
for freshman senator, and how they felt 
about some of the issues . 

CONGLOMERATE: Joey, what does it mean 
to you to be on the Senate? 

Joey Lacoste: i would have the privi- 
lege of representing the freshman class, 
presenting their views, showing that through 
a voice the freshman class can get something 
done and accomplished. 

CONGLOMERATE : Ivhat do you think the 
students should do about visitation now that 
President Allen has thrown out the petition 
for more visitation. 

Lacoste: I think it was closed-minded 
of him. I heard there was some area for 
compromise, ...and I'm for compromise.

We must keep pressing the issue. 

Jim Morris: We pay tremendous tuition, 
and I believe the freshman, everyone, de- 
serve visitation... I believe the President 
was wrong on going back on his past decision 
about visitation... We're going to have to 
do something. 

CONGLOI^ERATE : Mary Jane, you have some 
very interesting planks in your platform, 
one or Wo of which I'm sure people will not 
understand. 

Mary Jane: You mean the 87th di- 
mension. 

CONGLCTERATE: Yes 

Mary Jane: That particular plank is 
there... to make people think, make them 
ask questions . Campaigns are often too 
serious , and this is to add a bit of humor 
and interest. 

C0NGL0!<ERATE : What is your stand on 
the present regulations in the girls' dormi- 
tories. 

Jonna Jones : I think they could stand 
some change, but it's going to take a while. 
We've got to work on it. 

Mary Jane Peace: I believe that the 
restrictions on first semester freshman 
girls should be the same as those for other 
girls. If freshman girls aren't responsible 
enough to handle themselves, they don't be- 
long at college. 

CONGLOMERATE : Tracy, in your platform 
you stated you would leave it up to the 
freshmen as to how you would stand on the 
issues. Isn't it important that they know 
how you stand? 

Tracy Howard. I want to leave it up to 
them to see exactly what they want and what 
their opinions are. Then I can make my 
decision as to what the entire group wants 

CONGLOMERATE : What would you do about 
lower enrollment? How would you make the 
school more attractive? 

Jonna Jones: There are many problems 
we've just got to work out. I visited last 
year just for a weekend, and it seemed a 
more relaxed atmosphere. . .a lot quieter, 
happier atmosphere. It's different this 
year. . . I think that atmosphere would help 
bring students here. 

Reid Buckley is First 
In Fall Forums Series 

by Bob Robinson 

'Tudi of today's exciting, original 
thinking on humane social questions has 
come out of conservatism. Liberalism 
remains rooted in the thirties.'' This 
is a quote that has stirred many contro- 
versies and debates in many different 
grouns. Reid Buckley, vounger brother 
of the highly noted William F. Buckley, 
Tr. , is the author of the quote. 

Reid Buckley is a noted cultural and 
social critic and a nolitical conser- 
vative sneaker. On Monday, Oct. 16, 
Reid Buckley will sneak at Centenary on 
the nrobable tonic, ''Can Conservatives 
he Progressive?" 

Buckley has written two novels, 
Eve of the Hurricane and Servants and 
Their "asters , and has had works nub- 
1 ished in many magazines and newsnapers 
including Vogue, Atlantic Monthly, New 
v ork Times, and The National Review. 

When Buckley was asked why he was a 
conservative, he renlied, "I am a con- 
servative, not because of this or that 
political nrogram, but because as a 
writer I find this nhilosoDhy the humane 
and the real insight into human nature." 

Jeff Hendricks, chairman of the Forums 
Committee, had this comment on whv he 
chose Buckley to soeak: "Buckley? 
Because we haven't had an intelligent con- 
servative sneaker here in a while, and it 
would be an unusual and enlichteninp ex- 
nerience for the students." 'Vhen I asked 
who else he had in mind, Hendricks said 
that Anthony Burgess, author of numerous 
books including A Clockwork Orange would 
he sneaking later this semester. 

ess' book was made into a movie 
which was filmed and produced bv Stanley 
Kubrick. Burgess is tentatively scheduled 
Nov. 3. 
When I asked Hendricks about why he 




Dr. Stan Taylor opened his office door or 
the third floor of Mickle Hall early this 
week to find. . .newspapers . A room full of 't 

chose these men in particular and if he 
had thought about any other, he had this 
to say; "We looked at men such as .Tames 
Dickey, the author of Deliverance , and 
Rollo May, a noted nsydiologist , but the 
cost of these type of sneakers was a 
little high for our budget." Hendricks 
chose two men who weren't as well oub- 
licized as other sneakers, but who were 
as well informed on as many issues as 
the better known critics. Hendricks 
also checked to see if the Sneakers 
might be able to come early for informal 
discussions and speak in some classes, 
finishing with his lecture that evening. 
At this early date Hendricks thinks there 
is a good nossibility that this could 
hannen . 

As for looking into the future , 
Hendricks says he is trying trt. line uo 
Conor Cruise O'Brian, a leading Irish 
dinlomat, and William Everson, a San- 
Franciscan Renaissance poet and ex-Dominican 
monk. 




Dorm students take note: The "new" and 
most effective weapon to rid your house of 
cockroaches is boric acid, that household 
stanle grandma used as an eyewash, renorts 
tlie October Science Digest . Entomologist 
Walter Ebeling, nrofessor at UCLA, says 
it's safer than most insecticides, it's 
chean, it provides long-time control with 
one annlication, and roadies don't seem to 
build resistance to it. Roadies are clever 
enough to avoid most poisons, the scientist 
says, but they don't know boric acid will 
kill them until it's too late. Thev walk 
through it without harm, but when thev draw 
their legs through their mouths to clean 
them, they swallow the dust.

Blue Laws

issue. 

Yet, most people, while they disap- 
proved of the city ordinance, seemed rather 
unconcerned in attempting to repeal the blue 
laws. One man noted, "I got my own bar in 
my house. I don't worry about anyone else." 
Rather than the exception, his feelings 
seemed to be the rule. More than anything 
else, the right of personal and individual 
preference was emphasized, and most people 
seemed to feel that their actions are dic- 
tated by what they regard as a minority (a 
minority understood to be the conservative- 
white-Protestant element of the Shreveport 
population) . 

It is evident and generally understood 
in Shreveport that beer and wine sales are 
relatively widespread in the city on Sun- 
days , as pointed out by George Turner in the 
September 28th issue of the Shreveport 
Times . This understanding, in addition to 
the more or less "under the table" ad- 
vocation of such activity by the City of- 
ficials seems to be indicative of the pre- 
sent attitude of the people of Shreveport. 

The major concern expressed by most 
partakers of the fermented fruit at the 
Festival relates to the separation of church 
and state. As one gentleman pointed out, 
the laws as presently upheld discriminate " 
against certain individuals (Jews , for 
instance, whose Sabbath is not Sunday, but 
Saturday). Also, many people, regardless 
of personal religious preference, resent 
being controlled by another group whoe 
moral views they do not necessarily share. 
One man pointed this out most effectively 
when he state, "I don't think religious 
convictions should be foisted on people 
who don't have those particular religious 
convictions... Division of church and state 
is one of the building blocks of our so- 
called democracy, and the laws, good, bad 
or indifferent, should be strictly on the 
ethics of the community and not the morals 
dictated by the Judeo-Christian concept." 

Beyond the controversy of the blue 
laws, the feeling that the Wine Festival 
was not suspended by Ciry officials be- 
cause of monied interests supporting it 
was" not an uncommon theme. One man main- 
tained, "If you've got enough money and 
enough influence in this town, I've found 
that you can get anything you want . . . 
Sunday included." This in itself seemed to 
touch off some minor feelings of embitter- 
ment, but only encouraged remarks related 
to Shreveport and how it had better come 
up to "the times." The general feeling 
did prevail that eventually the younger 
businessmen would gain enough power so 
that things might bechanged. Some even 
saw this Wine Festival in itself as a 
breaking point. 

Editor's note: In a message attached 
to this CONGLOMERATE article, the author 
opined, "Hopefully , Shreveport will be able

Refitde U tfo^oliaye, 



by Jess Gilbert and 
Mike Marcell 

President Allen, yielding to the bitter 
winds of change sweeping the campus , an- 
nouced today the establishment of new 
visitation hours: 

Wednesday 4-6 AM 
In a rare appearance before the cheering, 
jubilant, and relieved student body, Allen 
beamed: "I like young people. I think 
this student body is the best we've ever 
had. It's good that you are concerned and 
involved." 

At the end of his address the Presi- 
dent spontaneously burst into the Alma 
Mater, and the contented students joyously 
chimed in. Golly, Centenary sure is a 
swell school. 



U.R. Rong is proud to announce the 
formation of a Shreveport chapter of 
Hate A McGovemite (HAM) . To be a mem- 
ber one must be incapable of rational 
argument and skilled in the art of in- 
tolerance. The first meeting will be held 
in the Student Union Building of Centenary 
College, room 7. The program will consist 



of such topics as "How to Curse at a 
McGovemite Whom You've Never Before Seen," 
"Advanced Techniques of Ripping McGovern/ 
Shriver Buttons from Blouses," "1001 Ways 
to Destroy McGovern Literature," and 
"Physical Abuse of McGovernites : A semi- 
nar in Shoving, Bumping, Pushing, and Gen- 
eral Rudeness." A special invitation is 
issued to Centenary gentlemen and gentle- 
women. 

*** 

Within our modernistic, technological 
society where bureaucratic man, self -alien- 
ated and estranged, struggles with mechani- 
stic complexities, fascist beasts, ruthless- 
ly rootless depersonalization, and the 
Great Emptiness , we at Centenary College 
find ourselves confronted with curriculum 
reform. From the rustlings of discontent 
emerge the following courses: 

Biology 410: Pimples. Economics 324: 
Labor- -Professor, Pate. English 324: Pate-- 
Professor, Labor. English 480: Sodomy in 
the Tasmanian Novella. History 317: Renais- 
sance and Regurgitation. Mathematics 307: 
Indifferent Equations. Religion 405: Pome- 
roy- -Professor, God. 



will recognize the present official hypoc- 
risy: wine festivals legal on very weak 
technicalities , the illegal distribution 
of alcoholic beverages on Sunday, and the 
failure of the City to enforce some sections 
of the City Code of Ordinances . Yet, 
beyond this, it is interesting to note 
how easily the people of Shreveport can 
overlook their own moral crisis and attempt 
to direct the standards of private, church- 
related liberal arts colleges ." 

Republicans Poll Dorms 

Results of a comprehensive canvass of 
the girls ' dormitories conducted by the 
Centenary College Republicans reveal over- 
whelming .support for President Nixon, ac- 
cording to Spokesman David Eatman, and also 
a need for absentee ballots for students. 

146 girls were personally contacted 
and responded to the following questions: 

"Do you consider yourself to be 

a ReDublican or Democrat?" 



R, 46%; D, 361; Ind, 221 
"Which Presidential candidate do 
you favor" 
Nixon, 804; McGovern, 10%; undecided, 10% 
"Do you need an absentee ballot for 
the Presidential election?" 
Yes, 76; No, 63 
An identical canvass is now being con- 
ducted in the boys' dormitories, and results 
are expected to be available next week. As- 
sisting in the girls' canvass were Gayle 
Fannon, Vida Traylor, Jan Gresham, and Maria 
Hukel.

THE CONGLOMEPATE 




WEEKLY MAIL 



GET OUT OF TOWN 

To the (W)hole of Centenary College: 

I was very disappointed to witness the 
"demonstration" in the dorms Monday night. 
What could have been a meaningful instru- 
ment of protest turned instead into a mad, 
destructive party. Setting off fire 
alarms, and scattering shreds of toilet 
paper all over the lobby of James Dorm is 
not my idea of the way to accomplish any 
serious purpose. 

I realized Monday night just what a joke 
this campus is . I no longer care very much 
about changing anything; it is all too 
ridiculous. I am only here because, for 
financial reasons, I can't go elsewhere, and 
a college degree is a necessary tool. As 
far as making the school better for future 
students , I would advise all future stud- 
ents to get out of Shreveport as fast as 
they can. 

Absurdity is the universal norm. 

Regretfully yours, 
Mary Ann Callahan 
P.S. If we can get it all together, may- 
be it's not too late.

VEXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION 




To: 



Committee on Faculty Organization 
(through Dr. Morgan) 
From: Taylor Caffery, CONGLOMERATE Editor 
Re: Committee of Student Life 

At the end of last spring's semester, the 
old Publications Committee voted to recom- 
mend to the Committee on Faculty Organization 
that the two student editors (CONGLOMERATE and 
Y0NC0PIN) be given a vote on publications 
matters in the Committee on Student Life. The 
approved committee structure for this year, 
however, includes the two editors (along with 
the publications ' adviser) only as "non- 
voting advisers on student publications 
matters." 

The situation as it stands, I contend, 
is unhealthy because it prohibits an effec- 
tive adversary relationship between the 
student government and the student publica- 
tions , by placing four Student Senate members 
on the committee. In times of change, when 
a campus newspaper and the students in elec- 
ted positions might be expected to disagree 
on means or goals, the structure of this 
year's Committee on Student Life would give 
the student government members an important 
position of control over the publications, 
making "advocative" journalism a dangerous 
field. 

Were the New York Times to wake up one 
morning to find the President of the United 
States, the Vice-President, two U.S. Sena- 
tors, and one member appointed by the Lord, 
on the NYT Publications Board, it would 
find itself in our position. 

I would like to see the student publica- 
tions, some time in the future, controlled 
apart from any other student government or 
faculty operations , because there are too 
many chances for conflict in the present 
structure. For a start, though, I believe 
student editors should at least have the 
right to vote. 

Sincerely, 
Taylor Caffery 
September 22, 1972 
Mr. Taylor Caffery, Editor 
The CONGLOMERATE 



Dear Taylor: 

In your letter of September 22 to the 
Faculty Organization Committee, you state 
your reasons for a change in the voting 
composition of the Committee on Student 
Life, which would allow the CONGLOhERATE 
and YONCOPIN editors a vote on publications 
matters. The aim of those reasons in essence 
is the guarantee of a free press. 

The Faculty Organization Committee, how- 
ever, feel that the present make-up of the 
Committee on Student Life effects that 
guarantee: there is a balance of (1) faculty 
members and a trustee and (2) students, at 
least four of whom are the elected represen- 
tatives of the student body. If editorial 
policies should run afoul of either of these 
groups, one or the other ought to defend 
freedom of the press. 

If some particular situation has arisen 
which would call into question the wisdom 
or workability of the present arrangement 
I would appreciate it if you would let me' 
know. 

Sincerely yours, 
Lee Morgan, 

Chairman, Committee on 
Faculty Organization 
"ber 3, 1972

To the Editor: 

President Allen has thrown up to the stu- 
dent body as an excuse for his reduction of 
visitation rights the argument that "no need 
has been established" for visitation I 
submit that President Allen has never est- 
ablished a need for his salary. 

Therefore, he should be paid for the work 
he does between 3 and 5 Sunday through Thurs- 
day afternoons, and from 3 to 10 p.m. the 
other two days of the week. 

After all, he can make up for it by work- 
ing in "available recreational facilities and 
lounges as well as study areas," and not just 
in his "center of activities for employment 
personal work, and group work."

Dear Mr. McCafferty, 

Sorry we are not allowed to accept ad-

publication committee forbids it! 

Sincerely, 
Janet Sammons 
Sept. 22, 1972 
Dear Janet: 

I understand when a newspaper writes 
back claiming that they don't want to run 
my ad. 

I don't understand when a newspaper 
writes back claiming that they can't run 
the ad because of pressures brought by 
the school administration. 

Perhaps Centenary College is failing 
in its primary task, vis. the education 
of students. There is a long tradition 
stemming from the Greek philosophers which 
holds that at the very least an educated 
man ought to make his own decisions. 

Janet, you really oughtn't to let 
your school tell you what to print Are 
news articles censored too? I should 
think if advertising is censored either news 
articles are or soon will be censored 

Anyway, if a school is doing its job 
properly, a termpaper company couldn't make 
a single sale on its campus. Does Centenary 
have something to fear? 

Listen Janet. I'm not coming down on 
you personally. But you should, as tile 
hippies say, get it together. Find some- 
thing worth fighting for- -termpaper ads 
may not be it --and fight like hell. Give 
it the old school try, so to speak. 
I remain: 
Friendly, 
Robert McCafferty

ON THE BUTTON 

To the Editor: 

A frightening thing hanpened to me 
today. Because I have chosen to wear 
a button that showed my supnort of a 
certain presidential candidate, I have 
had many cuss words and nersonal ac- 
cusations flung at me. Those accus- 
ations were not hurled at my candidate, 
but at me as a nerson. 

Have we become a society that is 
so embittered and hostile that we must 
act in such an ipnorant manner? I 
inagine we would all be un in arms if 
only one candidate was allowed to run 
for office. The thing that is imnor- 
tant is the fact that we alienate 
many peonle by such actions. 

.Tosenh Newton said that 'peonle 
are lonely because they build walls 
instead of bridges." Several walls 
were built today, but many more 
bridges could have been built if a 
rational conversation had taken place. 

I annlaud the neonle of ormosing 
views who stay rational, but to those 
who disnlay such narrow mindedness, 
I can only hone that with maturity 
they will learn tolerance. 

'He drew a circle that shut 

me out--

THE -CONGLOMEPATE 





October 6, 1972 



VISITATION 

by Taylor Caffery 

The following interview was recorded 
in Dr. Allen's office Wednesday morn- 
ing. — TLC 

CONGLOMERATE: Yesterday the Committee on 
Student Life met. Students are very angry 
and upset on campus . They spent Monday night 
in the lobby of James Dorm and out in the 
halls. The Committee on Student Life set 
up an appointment with you tomorrow, which 
is past our deadline, to ask you some ques- 
tions. I want to get a gist of the kind of 
answers you will be giving. They want to 
know how you made your decision, your sec- 
ond decision in fact, to refuse the more 
liberal visitation hours of the spring. 

ALLEN: Don't you think I should talk 
to them, though, before I start answering 
those questions? I think it's kind of a 
legitimate way to approach it . Maybe I 
should. That is, I shouldn't answer any 
questions before they ask. 

CONGLOMERATE : Well, then, ]_ could ask 
you the questions. What were your reasons? 

ALLEN: In a nut shell, what it's going 
to be, Taylor, is that I was expecting or 
at least anticipating that their recommen- 
dation to me, which involved the liberali- 
zation of the visitation program as we 
have had it, would contain information, 
would give me grounds for liberalizing. 
-But in fact,. what it, was was simply their 
•"unanimous request -that they be liberalized, 
and it did not contain any rationale of 
any consequence. This is what I would 
like to find out from them. They're going 
to ask me questions, and I want to ask 
them some. I think we'll have a fruit- 
ful meeting. 

CONGLOMERATE: They believed that they 
would send the simple statement along 
with the statements representative of the 
student body--Pam Sargent's letter, Rick 
i lark's letter, the many letters that 
■ have appeared in the CONGLOMERATE . Stu- 
dents I'm sure have tried to talk to you; 
a lot of them protest that you're out of 
town too much . 

ALLEN: Right. This is part of the 
terrible business of being president. Be- 
ing out of town, raising money and recruit- 
ing students. It's part of my job. 

CONGLOMERATE: They felt that what 
rationale there was would be given in these 
separate letters and opinions. Did you 
take those letters . . . 

ALLEN: Yes, and basically- -and I would 
invite you to look at them- -basically what 
they said was they wanted the hours liber- 
alized because they wanted the hours liber- 
alized, it was the kind of life a person 
wanted to live. And I kept searching for 
something pragmatic. 

CONGLOMERATE: Were there problems in 
the last semester, the spring semester? 
were there complaints about the hours' Did 
people say, 'Oh this is horrible, this has 

to StO! 

•ALLEN: Yes, but that's anticipated No 
matter what you do, somebody's not going to 
like it. If you serve Beef Wellington 
someone would rather have chicken. Yes 
there were some complaints, I acknowledge 
that, but don't necessarily assume that 
complaints drove me to change the hours 

CONGLOMERATE: What drovl vou to change 
the hours, then, was primarily your own 
decision? 

ALLEN': Right. I assume full responsi- 
bility. 

CONGLOMERATE: General Hardy at the Com- 
mittee on Student Life meeting said that the 
Board hadn't discussed it. 

ALLEN: That is correct. The board does 
not discuss these things unless it's brought 

IhJ^ !S a u d : ™ e Student Life Committee of 
the Board had not discussed it, and thev 

would be the committee which you would take 
it before. Now remember, the Board could 



Committee or the Student government wanted 
them to". 

CONGLOMERATE : At its base, this whole 
visitation issue comes down to a fear of 
sexual relations in the rooms, a belief by 
some students that that is not an issue , . 
and a belief by other students that, an is- 
sue or not, it's a relation between consen- 
ting adults who 're over eighteen and "legal" 
for everything in the state of Louisiana. 
Is it still the college's place in our 
society to determine for eighteen year-olds 
what their relationships will be? 

ALLEN: As long as the college is land- 
lord, the college as landlord must establish 
whatever living practices it as landlord 
sees are best for its housing. And that's 
what we're doing. 

CONGLOMERATE: As a graduate of a high 
school , a student either goes to college or 
goes off and works, goes to trade school, 
joins the military. These people are out 
in the world, learning to live in their own 
apartments , learning to cope with their 
problems themselves. Our students are in 
the dormitories protected from late night 
visitation and things like that. Are they 
learning to do anything other than to read 
books and to run home on the weekends and 
get in anything that they couldn't get in 
during the week? 

ALLEN: I suggest that those who are out 
in other places are living under lease agree- 
ments just as they are here- -and in the mili- 
tary that is, of course, a horse of a dif- 
ferent color- -but when you rent an apartment, 
if it's any good you have a lease agreement. 
There also has to be an effect on the style 
of life that you live: whether you can have 
a dog or a cat or children or a boyfriend or 
a girlfriend or a wife and so forth. We're 
trying to have a housing code which works 
best for everybody. It's awful hard. 

CONGLOMERATE: So, I'm bargaining with 
my landlord, and he says, "Well I'm sorry, 
this is the way it is, but I tell you what. 
If you want to fix it, you can go to this 
committee, and they can present it to this 
other committee, and they can present it to 
this other committee, and they can decide 
whether or not to give it to me." So I go 
through all those committees, give it to 
him, and he says, "Well, that's interest- 
ing, but no dice." Would you be throwing 
toilet paper on Hamilton Hall and staying 
till four a.m. in James dormitory? 

ALLEN: The only hearing other than this 
office that the student government has had 
was in the Student Life Committee. It 
hasn't been but the one place. 

CONGLOMERATE: And the faculty. 

ALLEN: The faculty didn't discuss it. 

CONGLOMERATE: Well, Rick Clark dis- 
cussed it to a small amount at that facul- 
ty meeting, but the faculty's decision was 
that the whole issue was not one in which 
the faculty should get involved, which the 
students interpreted as a small amount of 
support. The feeling was that you wanted 
a statement from the faculty. Not "We 
don't want to get involved," but a state- 
ment, "Yes they should, or no they should 
not, have their visitation hours." Would 
you have been happier if the faculty had 
said something? 

ALLEN: Yes, as I told the faculty that 
day, I think the faculty should be involved 
in the total campus life. They musn't in 
my opinion say, "Don't meddle with the math- 
ematics courses, or don't tell us how to run 
geology," that's the only time they seem to 
get disturbed. I thing a liberal arts col- 
lege like Centenary should involve the en- 
tire community. Faculty, students, admin- 
istration. 

CONGLOMERATE: Had they said, "We believe 
the dorm hours of last spring are beautiful ; 
we love "em," would that have... 

ALLEN: I'd have been in a real jam, 
wouldn't I, becuase I would have been a- 
lone . But as it is , they walked into 
the vacuum. 

CONGLOMERATE: So who's with you 
you're not alone now? 

ALLEN: Well, I may be all alone any- 
way. We'll never know where the faculty 
is. 

GLOMERATE: What alternatives would 
you approve? I believe you told Rick 
Clark that you might approve longer hours 
on weekends. 

ALLEN': I have never refused to discuss 
alternatives. My problem has been trying 
to get someone to discuss them with me 

CONGLOMERATE: The attitude at that com- 

- ...J. . . . I.J JJJ.L.jm.....lJL.JLIUl.U MM 




Party in' and carryin' on the James Dorm 
Monday night, in violation of the rules. 
Photos by David Lawrence . 

let's see if we can keep pushing for the 
hours that we really want. 

ALLEN: It was all or nothing, which put 
me in the impossible situation too. 

CONGLOMERATE: As I wrote in one editor- 
ial, one striking aspect of this whole thing 
is that the students are asking just for 
what they want. Really, it's a pretty con- 
servative thing to just say, I want what we 
had last semester. They aren't saying we 
want no hours, they weren't saying we want 
free sex in the dorms, they were just saying 
we want what we had last semester, which 
seemed pretty reasonable to me. It seemed 
workable last semester. I'm picturing some 
conversation you had on a mountain with the 
Lord over the summer that said, "It worked 
last semester but it won't this coming sem- 
ester." 

ALLEN: A major problem we had was a 
purely administrative one and didn't relate 
to behavior at all except that we have the 
obligation to provide supervision and pro- 
tection in dormitories during the times that 
they're technically open. Finding students 
who are willing and are able to work into 
the wee small hours every night manning a 
desk, keeping records, turning on the lights, 
checking the doors, is tough- -and not only 
is difficult for them to do, but also is 
difficult for us to finance and support. 
That's a cold turkey reason that just bothers 
us a great deal. And I'm giving you that 
rationale outside of all the others. 

But there's a complex of problems. And 
of course there's a reaction from certain 
parents and certain students. As I said in 
my response to the alcohol question a couple 
of years ago, if there's even a minority of 
students who feel endangered by something, 
I've got to listen to them very carefully' 
and so we do. But I'd love to talk to some- 
body . . . 

CONGLOMERATE: What about separate dorms' 
What about spring visitation hours in one 
dorm and this semester's visitation hours 
in another? 

ALLEN: Let's discuss it. I think that's 
something the Student Life Committee ought 
to. . . 

COMGLOMERATE: Okay, I'm in favor of it 
Do you accept it? 

ALLEN: (laughter) No, I can say, I like 
hot chocolate. Do you?

Decision: No Dice 

hours . ' He feels that he can expand the 
hours that we have, but he can't go as far 
as we wanted him to." 

Angered by the president's announced 
decision as passed by word of mouth, ap- 
proximately 150 students illegally "visited" 
in James Dormitory early Tuesday morning, 
arriving in the dorm at about 1 am and not 
dispersing until 3 or 4 am. The unofficial 
sit-in was termed peaceful by students who 
were present , although many dorm residents 
complained of excess noise. 

Prior to the illegal visitation, male 
students in Cline spent part of the night 
venting their frustrations in the suites 
and courtyard, yelling obscenities and 
emptying fire extinguishers . Tuesday 
morning, unsightly lengths of toilet paper 
were found strewn around and upon Hamilton 
Hall. 

Rick Clark later attacked the night- 
time doings, stating, "I don't care if 
people boo me. What happened last night, 
it did nothing but hurt us. I firmly 
believe that. Quote me, kick me in the 
rear, that's what I believe. If we ever 
had any bargaining power or ever had any- 
thing to negotiate, we're gonna lose it if 

something like last night happens again 

That is not the course to take." 

The Committee on Students Life met 
Tuesday morning in the Smith Building with 
the history of the petitions, meetings, 
and, the final rejection fresh in the members' 
minds. The purpose of the meeting, chaired 
by college chaplain Robert Ed Taylor, was to 
determine an official means of coping with 
the president's decision. An interview ap- 
pointment with Dr. Allen and a mass meeting 
to communicate with students resulted from 
this committee meeting. 

Opening the meeting by rushing through 
other committee business, Rev. Taylor then 
read to the members and 40 student visitors 
the text of Dr. Allen's written reply to the 
resolution passed by the Student Senate 
and the committee: "I am unable to accept 
the recommendation that we return to the 
dormitory visitation practices of last 
spring, as submitted by the Committee on 
Student Life. I believe there are workable 
alternatives which would meet the needs and 
requests of the students. To this end, I 
have instructed Dean Miller to explore pos- 
sibilities and make recommendations. You 
are invited to participate in the effort." 

Committee member Cindy Yeast, a sopho- 
more senator, suggested " some kind of 
audience or hearing or something with Presi- 
dent Allen... so that we can hear his reason- 
ing and then we could get some idea of what 
would be possible, because otherwise we're 
just going to keep banging our heads against 
the wall. He keeps saying no, and we don't 
know what he wants and what he doesn't want, 
at least I don't." 

Replying to this statement, Dr. Webb 
Pomeroy stated that one possible reason for 
the lack of knowledge might rest in the fact 
that Dr. Allen has not attended any meeting 
of the committee although he is a member ex- 
officio. "I think that has been one of the 
problems that I 'vs encountered, is that I 
don't know why he doesn't come to the meet- 
ings. He's a member of the committee, he 
should at least tell us why he doesn't come 
to the meetings." 

Member Mike Marcel 1 took up another 
course and asked General John S. Hardy x 
the Board of Trustees ' representative on the 
committee, about the boards opinions and in- 
sights into the problem of visitation. "I 
have no insight," General Hardy replied. 
"I really don't. We haven't discussed it. 
This has not come up before the board, and 
I'm not in a position to state how anybody 
feels unless they have discussed it." 

His personal opinion, General Hardy con- 
tinued, representing only his thought "and 
not the Board of Trustees , is that the Board 
would be inclined to say that the college 
could work this out without the Board of 
Trustees getting into it." 

Government instructor Wes Garvin told the 
committee members that the students "are up- 
set about the process, about the way it has 
been handled: the decision being made during 
the sumner uhen relatively few people were 
here , the demand to go back through channels , 
the going back through channels: again, veto. 
I think this is what's bothering most of the 
students, at least that I've talked to, and 
I think in this case they're absolutely right 



in demanding the reasons for why the system 
hasn't responded, since they vere told to use 
the system." 

The results of the Tuesday meeting were 
a 3 pm Thursday appointment (yesterday, past 
CONGLOMERATE deadlines) for the committee 
with Dr. Allen to listen and discuss , and a 
6:45 pm Thursday setting for a mass campus 
meeting in the ampitheater. 

While the students are preparing to 
continue to contest Dr. Allen's decision, 
Dean Eddy Miller and Dr. Louis Galloway have 
been selected to look into the alternative 
possibilities and recommendations suggested 
in Dr. Allen's letter to the Committee on 
Student Life chairman. In particular, they 
will explore ideas concerning the Sub and its 



closing hours, the library, and special "date 
rooms." Dean Miller invited all interested 
students to contact him with suggestions. 
Rick Clark stated that Dr. Allen might be 
open to later dorm hours on weekends. 

Other issues involved in campus debate 
concern coeducational dormitories , campus 
security, noise in the dorms, brother-sister 
attitudes vs . hunter-game attitudes , and the 
limits within which student self-government 
should have free rein. All that is really 
clear in the dorm visitation dispute is that 
students want more, Dr. Allen wants less, the 
faculty doesn't GAD, and the Board of Trustees, 
w ell , who knows?

Murder in the Kingdom of Heaven 






by Deanne Stillman 

ALTERNATIVE FEATURES SERVICE 

Mora County sheriff's officers and Dis- 
trict Attorney Donaldo Martinez of Las 
Vegas investigated Friday the shooting death 
of Michael Press, about 25, of New York, N.Y. 

Press was identified by friends who 
lived at the Kindom of Heaven commune at 
Guadalupita in Mora County. Sheriff Frank 
Romero said Press apparently was running 
from some type of confrontation at Guada- 
lupita and was shot in the back. Press' 
body was found Friday after his friends re- 
ported the shooting and he didn't return. 

I arrived early for one of the final 

hearings and stood outside the old adobe 

courthouse at Mora, near Guadalupita. I'd 

come to find out why a freak from New York 

was murdered in the Land of Enchantment. I 

looked across the street to the Sangre de 

Cristos, the mountains which harbor all the 

answers , and lure the naive back to the 

land. 

It all seemed so easy, move to New 

Mexico, get back to the land... 
** 

It's early 1970, communal life is in 
vogue. If you're a hiopie, you by-pass the 
streets to go back to the land, because 
the cities are making that final slide 
toward death." You don't really have a 
destination, but "that's cool." Northern 
New Mexico becomes home -- that's where 
a lot of neonle are going and that's 







where your ride takes you. 

Once there, you realize that in rural 
New Mexico the land is untouched, unre- 
strained by fences and billboards, and 
trees grow unconfined by telephone poles 
or electrical wires. The horizon is un- 
cluttered with neon signs or road instruc- 
tions -- you aren't invited to eat at Joe's 
or warned to keep out or turn right on 
red or slow down. The green mountain hills 
seem limitless and so do you. 

This is the answer, you think. It's 
uncorrupted, they haven't found it yet; 
it's clean, it's pure, it's everything the 
city isn't, so you decide to stay here and 
live on/off the land. The old Snanish 
villages lie hidden like unmined diamonds, 
waiting for you to discover and refine 
them. You've heard stories about local 
reaction to strangers, but you're different, 
and New Mexico's allure is irresistible. 
Natives of northern New Mexico make 
little contact with the outside. Some 
villages still speak 17th century Snanish, 
and many people think the Black Panthers 
are wild animals you see in picture books. 
But you don't know this, and you don't know 
that the r>eople have already met your 
hippie stereotype via the tube, their 
periodic connection with America, and you 
don't know that young Chicanos hear about 
free love from their teachers and talk 
about it like it's as popular as eating 
dinner. You don't know that these neonle 
have snent lifetimes trying to acquire 
middle class paraphernalia, while overnight 
you discard it. A life of simplicity 
awaits, and all you have to do is live it. 

ftft 

On August 5 and 6, 1970, the Kingdom 
of Heaven dies: one member shot and killed, 
three kidnapped and pistol -whipped, and a 
fourth kidnapped and raped three times. The 
death blows are quick and unexpected, al- 
though signals of the Kingdom's fall come 
•en. The commune does not want to see. 
Pretend you have grown up in Guada- 
lutjita, a small town nurtured and overdosed 
on machismo, and you are one of the six 
local men who will crush the Kingdom of 



Heaven. The presence of the Kingdom is an 
affront to community values , but you suffer 
several other insults without reaction: 
On hot days, commune residents 
garden in the nude. A resident 
speculates on your reaction -- 
"You see this girl and think, 'Here's 
a cirl and she's naked on this niece 
of property with all these guys 
around. She must be ballin', why 
isn't she ballin' me? I'm just as 
good as them. ' " 

A transient begins an argument 
at the local bar. He talks about 
the unimportance of money with a man 
who can't understand why hippies 
choose to be poor when they can be 
rich. The man raises sheen for a 
living, and lives in a two- room adobe 
house. The hippie can't understand 
why Chicanos strive for wealth because 
to him money is meaningless. He is 
emphatic, and fishes in his pocket 
for money. He pulls out a five-dollar 
bill, then burns it. 

A transient with a hole in the 
crotch of his pants walks into town, 
penis hanging out of his pants. He 
approaches the wife of a local store - 
keener and she is too stunned to move. 
Two commune residents drive through 
town, see him talking, scoon him up 
and drive off. . The woman associates 
him with the Kingdom, although he is not 
a permanent resident. 
Kingdom members are mildly unset about 
these incidents, especially the last. But 
they are not upset enough to expel tran- 
sients from the land, because they "don't 
want to put anyone on bummers." Although 
they dislike offending neighbors, they 
want to maintain an open door policy since 
many other coinnunes are beginning to screen 
or reject strangers. 

Hippies are unwelcome in Guadalupita, 
and local residents try several times to 
communicate their hate and fear to commune 
members. Incidents foretell a grim future, 
but early signals might not drive you out 
of a town you decide to call home, because 
quitting is not the American way, and after 
all , it sounds like something out of Easy 
Rider. 

The scenario is this : Anglos arrive 
in Guadalupita looking for the Kingdom, 
and local people give intentional wrong 
directions, sometimes guiding them to 
more hostile territory. Often they tell 
longhairs to get out, or simply ignore 
them. Hitchhikers frequently wait for 
a couple of days to get out of town. 
Young Chicanos flash peace signs to 
strangers coming through town or to 
commune residents, but the gesture is a 



trying to decipher the message. 

August 5, 1970, evening. Six men get 
drunk and decide to rough up the hippies. • 
They drive through town, and see three men 
and a woman, all Kingdom residents, walking 
home. At gunpoint, they force them into the 
trunks of their two cars. They drive from 
bar to bar, stopping at each one, exhibit- 
ing their terrified cargo, then come to a 
rest at a lake twenty miles south of Guada- 
lupita. While she is still in the trunk, 
they rape the woman three times. They 
pistol -whip the men and leave them to die. 
But nobody dies, and miraculously they get 
back to the Kingdom. They decide not to 
contact the authorities . 

August 6, 1970, evening. Six gun-toting 
drunks surprise three commune residents as 
they sit around a fire, discussing last 
night's kidnappings. The intruders tell 
them not to move or they will die, but two 
of the three run for the safety of the . 
dark, alien night. A bullet hits one in the 
back and he dies instantly, the other es- 
capes. The men march the third into town, 





mock,' not a sign of solidarity. 

Several times Kingdom residents are 
harrassed by local studs who hope to 
push the hippies into a fight. Sometimes 
their taunts are verbal, and other times 
they pull knives, but fights never materia- 
lize. The victims are stigmatized as 
"chickens." Men with long hair are called 
girls. Braless women are great curiousi- 
ties, and the reality of seeing them coin- 
cides with the media-created images of 
'hinpie chicks." These signals arouse no 
fear, though. 

'"ine afternoon, a caravan of young and 
old Chicanos masquerading as hirroies 
marches up the hill to the Kingdom. Some 
wear head bands and beads , and others have 
their faces decorated with war paint 
bizarre funeral parade, they climb the hill, 
saying nothing. Commune residents watch. 



H^ij.% 



a pistol at his back. On the way, they 
force him to- climb barbed-wire barefooted, 
but somehow he escapes . He runs back to 
the Kingdom to join- other residents, now 
refugees, who are hiding on the side of a 
mountain. At dawn, a search party finds the 
dead man. 

Two years later, the insanity of that 48 
hours has met justice. Not the kind of 
justice the dead man's parents would have 
wanted, and not the kind of justice the vic- 
tims of the attack might have wanted. 

In July charges against all but one were 
reduced to charges of aggravated battery. 
The five men pleaded guilty and received 
suspended sentences and minimal fines. The 
sixth was charged with voluntary manslaughter 
because the D.A. said he was the ringleader. 
He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to $500 
fine and two -ten years in prison. 

It was the justice of poorly lubricated 
judicial machinery, of complex, time-stal- 
ling legal maneuvers , and of a reported 
eyewitness disappearance. 

Defense motions for consolidation and 
for change of venue delayed the trial for 
over a year, and then Martinez, the D.A., 
said key witnesses could not be found. 
A counter- report said they were in town* to 
testify, housed in a shack near the court- 
house, and were told if they talked, they 
would die. They left town. 

The woman didn't show for the rape 
trial, because at the preliminary hearing, 
she was painfully intimidated, asked typical 
rape questions (Did you like it?). 

It's now summer, 1972, and although com- 
mual life is not in vogue, latecomers go 
west, looking for a life of peace and tran- 
quility. A young man, long hair, backpack, 
stands on Route 66, thumb out. 'Taos" is 
magic-markered onto a piece of cardboard 
he holds in his other hand. I stop to 
ask why he is going to Taos. 

"1 heard it's really far-out and they 
got a lot of dope growing out there. Hey 
man, Taos is where it all started." 

I think of the freak who burnt money in 
the face of a town which has none and want 
either to vomit or cry. I pull back on 
the road and drive away.

THE tfWLO>iEPATE 



Who Says That Stuff In 
Your Food Is Poisonous? 



by Elinor Houldson/AFS 

An inflexible, absolute and "unsci- 
entific" rule is currently your only pro- 
tection against cancer-causing food addi- 
tives. 

Passed in 1958, the Delaney amend- 
ment to the Food Additives Law stated 
that "No additive shall be deemed safe if 
it is found, after tests which are ap- 
propriate for the evaluation of the 
safety of food additives , to induce 
cancer in man or animal." 

But the Delaney rule has provided 
something less than absolute protection. 
Within the Federal Government, there is 
behind-the-scenes manipulating of the 
law's enforcement, inappropriate testing, 
and much sympathy for the food industry, 
with little tenderness for its victims. 

Although the Delaney rule is credited 
for knocking cyclamate sweeteners off 
market shelves after tests revealed cy- 
clamates caused bladder cancer in rats, 
the ruling came years after cyclamates had 
been banned or severely restricted in 
Japan, Canada and the Soviet Union. 

DES (diethylstibesterol) , a proven 
carcinogen ("cancer-producer) often used to 
fatten livestock, was only reluctantly 
banned by the Food and Drug Administra- 
tion. Then Secretary of Agriculture 
Earl L. Butz took up the cattle industry's 
cause -omplaining that "The result is that 
the /7 c is deprived of a product that 
helpc ibstantially to produce a record 
amount of high-quality beef more effi- 
ciently at less cost to consumers. 

Consumers , of course , are caught 
between an inevitable increase in the al- 
ready bloated price of beef, and the risk 
of dining on a possible source of cancer. 

Opponents of the Delaney rule plan 
to put up a fight over DES_wiIh_the 
argument tnat the law is "unscieht if i c . " 
They insist the concept of zero tolerance 
is unfair, that there are obvious dif- 
ferences between men and animals, and if 
an additive is found to be carcinogenic 
in animals, it doesn't follow that it 
will also be so in humans. 

While he was Nixon's Secretary of the 
Department of Health, Education and Wel- 
fare, Robert Finch suggested that "the 
Delaney Amendment . . . .be modified to 
permit some scientific rationality in making 
these decisions. If we were to apply the 
criteria of the Delaney Amendment across 
the board, eventually we would be reduced 
to a nation of vegetarians and even some 
of the vegetables would have to be banned." 

That, however, is a risk we won't 
likely be forced to take, because the 
Delaney rule certainly hasn't been applied 
across the board. 

Still in wide use are cancer-producing 
saccharin, potassium nitrite, sodium 
nitrite, and coloring for citrus fruit. 

Even when the FDA does ban a product, 
it doesn't bring an immediate stop to its 
use. In August, for instance, the FDA 
proposed banning the use of asbestos - 

uninated talc used in products such 
as dry foods , chewing gun and vitamin 
supplements. But before the FDA makes its 
final ruling, parties affected by the 
proposed ban will get their say in a 
hearing before the agency next October. 
And this proposed ban is not on all talc-- 
just talc contaminated by asbestos, which 
is known to be cancer -causing when inhaled. 

Lobbyists from the farm states are 
fighting for a change in the Delaney rule so 

•rock can again be fattened with DES. 
Theirs will be the strongest attempt yet 
to breach the provisions of the 19S8 law. 

As research adds to the list of known 
cancer-producing substances, and agri- 
business prepares the assault on Delanev's 
rule, consumers' defensp^^remain United and 
weak .

cremation is fast becoming the 
alternative to burial in many parts of 
the U.S. This trend is greatest on the 
Pacific coast, where last year 17 per 
cent of those who died were cremated. 
The shortage of land for cemeteries , and 
the high cost of gravesites and their 
maintenance, are the major reasons for 
the increased use of cremation. The 
Cremation Association of America also 
promotes its service as an "aid to 
Dublic health and to save the land for 
the living." The six to ten pounds of 
cremains (the proper term for ashes of 
a cremated person) are generally buried 
or scattered to the wind or sea. 

Some archeologists are concerned 
that future historians will have a dis- 
torted view of our civilization if 
everyone is cremated and no buried 
bodies are available for investigation. 
But one pessimist believes: "It will 
be some time before we have to worry 
about it... and man will have eliminated 
himself by then anyway."

nia are likely to receive longer orison 
terms than rapists. State crime 
statistics for 1969 reveal that the 
median prison sentence for non-violent 
acts of sex perversion, indecent ex- 
posure and sodomy, with human or ani- 
mal , was 4 1 months compared to 36 
months for "rape with great bodily 
injury." More recent figures are 
believed to be similar. Convicted non- 
violent sex offenders , many of whom 
are homosexuals, also generally get 
heavier sentences than persons found 
guilty of assault with a deadly weapon 
(36 months) and first degree burglary 
(37 months) . 

But change may be in the air. ("in 
September 11, 1972, the California Su- 
Dreme Court ruled unconstitutional the 
state law making it a felony, punish- 
able by one to 15 years imprisonment, 
for any individual to participate "in 
the act of copulating the mouth of one 
oerson with the sexual organ of 
another." Other states are expected 
to follow the California precedent, 
although the way they make it sound in 
the law books, maybe it should be il- 
legal. 

The Committee to Re-elect the 
President- -or CREEP, as some Nixon 
.foes call it-- regularly set! 
servers" to McGovern press confer- 
ences and appearances. At one recent 
McGovem speech, the microphones fail- 
ed. The Senator, noting the Watergate 
"bugging" incident and the reputation 
of CREEP members as electronic wizards, 
suggested the Nixon men in the audience 
be asked to help repair the sound 
svstem. 



Why Buy Toothpaste? 

As a result of a survey of more than 500 
comercial tooth pastes, powders and mouth- 
washes, the American Dental Association (ADA) 
has concluded that for the average person 
the most suitable inexpensive dentifrice is 
probably baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) " 
and the most suitable mouthwash is water 
with a little baking snda in it. 

A few dentifrices contain suear, the ADA 
says, and many contain phosphates. If stains 
accumulate on the teeth desoite the use of 
baking soda, a commercial dentifrice can be 
used occasionally. 

The ADA rated 21 popular dentifrices on 
the basis of their abrasiveness in wearing 
away tooth enamel : Plus White and v te were 
among the worst offenders, Listerine and Pep- 
sodent among the safest. 

As to mouthwashes, it said it "does not 
presently recognize any substantial contri- 
bution to oral health in the unsupervised use 
of medicated mouthwashes by the general pub- 
lic Even claims that mouthwashes overcome 
mouth odors should be viewed with some re- 
serve. Breath odors may result from poor 
oral or systemic disease which may be of 
serious concern."

Gents Sweep Wildcats; 
Fall Season Closes 

The Centenary Gents finished their fall 
baseball schedule Monday in Pineville by 
sweeping a doubleheader from Louisiana 
College. The victories, by scores of 7-6 
and 7-4, put the Gents' record at 4 wins 
and 2 losses. Tracy Knauss and Dan Sparrow 
picked up the victories for the Gents. 
Perry Peyton relieved Knauss on the mound 
in the opener, and Jerry Peyton relieved 
Sparrow in the nightcap. Catchers Don 
Birkelbach and Randy West led the Gent 
attack. 



Horns 39 TKE II 6 

Sparrow scored three touchdowns and 
Peyton, Paulson, and Olson also scored to 
lead the Horns over TKE II, 39-6, last Thurs- 
day. TKE's only score came on a Holmes-to- 
Dodson pass. Treadaways ' scrambling and 
throwing keyed the Horn attack. 

TKE I 21 Sig I 13 

Walker, Avery, Breen scored once for TKE I 
and LeBlanc scored twice for Sig I. Paul 
Young led a tenacious defense for the TKE I 
victors as the Sigs lost their first game. 

TKE II 24 Faculty 13 

TKE II 's Bob Dodson intercepted three 
times and scored once for the TKE's. Mike 
Griffin and Chris Creamer each scored, Griffin 
scoring twice. The Faculty scored once on a 
T.D. run and later on a pass connection. 

Sig II 24 Theta Chi7 

Mollet scored twice to lead Sig II to a 
24-7 victory over Theta Chi. Camahan and 
Danny Reedy also scored for the Sigs. 
Pawlowski connected with Owens for Theta 
Chi's only score. 

Sig I 25 KA 20 

Sig I defeated KA 25-20 last Thursday in 
their traditional battle. Sig I also picked 
up another victory as Theta Chi forfeited. 

Golfers Take Tourney 

The Centenary golfers scored a tournament 
victory this weekend at the Southern State 
College Tournament in Magnolia, Arkansas. The 
Gents' 315 total edged Southern State's 317 
and Louisiana Tech's 322. 

David Lisle of Centenary tied for medalist 
with Southern State's Tim Cain. They each 
shot a 77. Other Gent totals were Bobby 
Crowley's 78, Tracy Howard's 79, Jeff Davis' 
81, and Mike Satterwhite's 83. 



Faculty 52 Theta Chi 

Led by quarterback Lowrey, the Faculty 
smashed Theta Chi 52-0, to keep their play-

Hawks Win 133-131 

Pistol Pete Celebrates 
Homecoming i— (Guns 25 

by Tom Marshall 

BATON ROUGE- -Pistol Pete Maravich celebrated his "homecoming" 
to the LSU campus by scoring 25 points --including two key bas- 
kets—as the Atlanta Hawks scored a 132-131 overtime vic- 
tory over the Houston Rockets in a National Basketball Associa- 
tion preseason game here Tuesday night. 

From the moment he stepped on the floor, through a hot streak 
in the first quarter, until the final horn at the end of the 
overtime Maravich gave the fans the show that they had come to see. 

The big crowd- -although less than the expected 14,500 sell- 
out- -gave Pete a rousing reception when the Hawks took the floor 
for their pregame warmup and then rocked the Assembly Center with 
a two-minute standing ovation when the six-foot-five eager was 
the first player announced in the preliminary introductions. 
From then on it was Pete's show as the former LSU great with 
a record collegiate average of better than 44 points per game 
hit on first three field goal attempts and had nine points in 'the 
first quarter. In addition to the 25 points, 
Maravich handed out a game-high eight assists 
The first was a behind -the -back bounce pass 
to teammate Lou Hudson on a Hawk fast break. 
The crowd roared its approval and Pete took 
the cue for more of the same. 

When Pete went to the bench for a rest 
early in the fourth quarter, the crowd 
picked up the chant "We Want Pete!" It 
wasn't long before Atlanta coach Cotton 
Fitzsimmons decided that he NEEDED Pete as 
he called for the Pistol with 1:44 to go 
in regulation and his Hawks trailing 120- 
114. Pete's 15-footer from the comer 
pulled Atlanta to within two a 120-118 with 
1:07 to go. Then, after Atlanta center Walt 
(Bells) Bellamy tipped in a Maravich miss, 
Houston's Mike Newlin put the Rockets ahead 
122-120 and force the overtime. 

The Rockets jumped out to a 127-124 lead

New Hawks' coach Cotton Fitzsimmons 
expressed his confidence in the third- 



on former Baltimore Bullet Jack Marin's three- year pro when he said, "Pete can handle 
point play with 3:30 to go in the extra period. the ball as good or better than anybody who's 
but Maravich got it right back with a left- played the game--he's got all the tools,

After the game, Pete said of his return to 
Baton Rouge that it was "Nice caning back," 
adding that the fans in the assembly were a 
"Great crowd- -great crowd. There's a lot of 
good memories here," added Pete. Which one 
stands out the most? "There's too many to 
single one out," was all the floppy-haired 
pro would answer. 

Much of what he said sounded like stock 
answers to often-asked question. Do the 
Hawks have a contender this year? 'Too 
early to tell --everybody's just getting 
organized now. But," he continued, 
"Everybody starts off even--we'll just 
wait and see." Is Pete feeling top notch 
after last season's bout with mononucleo- 
sis? '.'I'm fully recovered from last season," 
was the answer.

Back in the locker room Maravich was 
still fielding questions as he packed his 
No. 44 Hawks Jersey with "Pistol" emblazoned 
across the back. Someone asked him how many 
more years he wanted to play pro basket- 
ball. That brought a laughter from his team- 
mates- -mostly older pros --and one suggested 
that Pete would probably play until "they 
carry him off on a stretcher." Pete affirmed 
and then added a little more seriously, "This 
is a good paying job. I'm going to play until 
I get the big diamond ring on my finger. 
Then I'm going to quit." 

King Shares Crown 

Robert Huck, Sr. , more usually 
referred to around these Darts as 
'V.K. Rob'', has turned over manage- 
ment — although not ownership --- 
of The Pizza King to .Tim Carnn, 
former manager of Pizza Hut. 

Huck this summer started a 
business enterprise called "P.K. 
Concessions", an undertaking which 
has outgrown his canacity to handle 
it along with the nizza narlor. It 
now includes the concessions at the 
MotoCross Paces, the Playland (roller) 
Skating Pink, and the Linwood Ice 
Skating Pink . 

Camp, says Huck, was nicked 
because Huck wanted a trained Dizza 
nan (a nizzano?) . Carnn has heen in 
the nizza business for the last couple 
of years, Healing with the tvne of 
assemblage to which the Pizza King 
caters, and has Huck's rating of com- 
petent. 

The change bepins next Thursday, 
the 12th (famous for the exploits of 
another type of crustv Italian im- 
port). Huck will still be around, 
however, "tutorinp" Camp until the 
first week of November, when his mair 
personal emphasis will shift to his 
other endeavors. Even then, he will 
be around the oarlor a eood part of 
the time.

Natural Foods 

The Natural c o ods Primer, Simon and 
Schuster, 1072, *a.35. 

The .'.'atural c oods Cookbook, Pyramid 
narierbacl- edition, iy7'l, ybf. 

The year 1961, when the Cookbook was 
first published, was a tine of affluence, 
rather than enliphtenment . Its two thou- 
sand recines offered not only an abun- 
dance of new exotic foods but also a de- 
fense against the delupe of V dinners, 
easy mixes, instant nuddinps, and other 
foodless foods so readily available at 
the market. 

At that time, the Primer would have 
attracted a verv limited audience. But 



INCMAR BERGMAN'S 
ACADEMY AWARD WINNER 




^jU/iMufJAyO^toUiH tyf*$4 



the Cookbook nromised "a new way to more 
flavorsome meals, preater enerpy, more 
radiant health," and a wide variety of 
recipes heloed to nut its nrincinles in- 
to nractice. So it annealed to a lot of 
neonle and the idea of natural foods 
caupht on. 

The recines introduced such new con- 
cents as usinq whole prains rather than 
refined flours and cereals, honey and 
other natural sweeteners in nlace of re- 
fined supar, herbs instead of salt and 
snices, vepetable oils rather than 
animal fats, and vitamin rich yeast and 
sourdouoh instead of vitamin destroying 
leavening agents such as baking nowder 
and ba);ing soda. 

There were a few "apes of text list- 
ino the foods , sunnly sources , and the 
use of the blender in the author's re- 
cines. But for the most nart the my- 
stified cook just nlunged into the re- 
cines, and discovered the foods as she 
went along. Gradually seeds, snrnuts, 
wheat perm, yoghurt, dulse, soybean pro- 
ducts and nutritional yeast were intro- 
duced to family and friends, and event- 
ually a demand for these food= was built 
un at health stores, coons and suner- 
markets. 

Now comes The Natural c onds Primer : 
lleln for the Bewildered Bepinner ! Tlie 
format is comnletely different: there 
are relatively few recines. Mostly it 
is a very readable exnlanation, nlus 
ideas on adjusting your own recines, 
and inventing new ones. 

Tie Primer introduces natural foods 
as a way of life. It teaches you how 
to read labels as you shon, what to 
choose, what to avoid. It lists well 
over a hundred items to add to your 
food list, exnlaining uses and values 
of each item. It also nresents servinp 
ideas. 

Tie chanters on care, storage, nre- 
naration and equinment used, includes 
much of value. For exarmle, a reminder 
never to use your meat cuttinp board 
for vepetables, fruit, cheese, etc. 
I'onefully, meat is cooked thorouphly 
enouph to kill orpanisms which cause 
salmonella. But foods eaten raw, or 
barely cooked to nreserve nutrients 
and color, can De contaminated by this 
kind of food poisoning. Also epqs are 
norous and should not be exoosed on 
those built-in epp slots of the refrip- 
erator- -especially if you use them raw 
in ep.g nog or health drinks. Keen them 
covered in their carton, and don't use 
the cracked ones . 

The final chanter, "Do Your Own 
Thinp' contains vital information on 
snroutinp seeds and prains, starting 
yogurt and other milk cultures, grind- 
inp your own grain, starting sourdough, 
mixinp cereal, makinp salad dressings, 
vineoar, sauerkraut, drying fruit, 
toastinp soybeans, and all the other 
nrocedures you've been wondering about. 

Both these books by Beatrice Trum 
Hunter are worthwhile- -one is not 
merely an extension or revision of the 
other. Start with Primer , for a whole 
new annroach to food, or start with 
Cookbook and nroceed methodically, by 
selecting certain recines. Eventually 
you'll want both in your kitchen.

It's In The Cards 

by Cherry Payne 

"Oftentimes people get worried when the card of Death turns up. Actually, it is a very good card 
for most people as it indicates a change in things." This statement was made by Pattie Overstreet a 
senior at Centenary who is more than passingly interested in the Tarot. 

The Tarot, known by most people as "those cards you read your fortune with" seems to have gained 
in popularity within the past few years. What most people don't seem to realize, however is that 
reading The Tarot is quite an art in itself which takes much time, patience and effort to 'develop, 
partially due to the individual sensitivity required and the complexity of the cards Pattie and' 
several other friends have been pursuing this for the past two years or so and, judging from her re- 
sponses during my interview with her, has been continually intrigued, amazed and challenged by The 
Tarot . b ' 

Pattie answered many of my own questions and clarified many things which I had misunderstood 
primarily because I was aware of the Tarot only through rumors and 'the like. Pattie admits that 'when 
she first became aware of The Tarot she was quite skeptical and became interested only because of a 
friend. Yet, she says that the more she played with them and learned about them, the more interested 
she became and realized that there is much more to The Tarot than appears on the surface 

Perhaps the one thing that fascinates me the most is Pattie »s own interpretation of the signi- 
ficance of The Tarot. She repeatedly emphasized the fact that the cards do not predict the future 
Rather, they show the tendency one's life is taking because of the particular emotions and problems 
tne querent , or person who is having the cards read, is encountering at that time of his life The 
querent, according to theory, transmits his emotions to 



the cards and through the cards to the reader. Hence, 
a great deal of sensitivity and empathy is required 
on the part of the reader to make a significant inter- 
pretation. This, Pattie maintains, is why The Tarot 
is so closely related to psychic phenomena. Pattie 's 
own interpretation of HOW the cards work is most fas- 
cinating. She feels that God may be interpreted as a 
pattern in the universe. She regards the Tarot as be- 
ing on the same wavelength as this pattern, and con- 
sequently, is able to give the querent some insight in- 
to himself. It is dangerous, Pattie feels , to take 
the cards too seriously or as a statement of the way 
things are to be, as she maintains that an individual 
may conciously change those things that the cards seem 
to indicate. Thus, they help one in that they serve as 
a means of self- illumination and help the querent to 
look at oneself from a more objective point of view. 

Pattie does not feel that she herself is psychic, 
but did point out that her interest in The Tarot is 
continually augmented by the insight and sensitivity 
she feels she is attaining through her experiences in 
this area. Yet, one point that she made that I found 
fascinating is that the cards must be treated very 
gently for them to respond effectively at a reading. 
For instance, each reader must become familiar with 
his own deck of cards and build some sort of "bond" 
with them. Pattie keeps her cards wrapped in a special 
cloth. She noted that when one first attains a deck 
(and they must be given by a friend, not bought) it is 
necessary to sleep with the cards under one's pillow in 
order to establish a familiarity with the deck by means

Dr. Allen's Decision: 
New Dorm Hours 

by Jeff Daiell 

Centenary's seven-week imbroglio over 
dormitory visitation hours apparently 
came to a close this week, with both sides 
giving and taking. 

Last Friday, the Student Life Com- 
mittee devised the following formula for 
visitation: (1) 1st semester freshmen would 
be restricted to the current hours, and then 
only with parental permission (according to 
Dean of Students Eddy Miller, such permis- 
sion has already been required), (2) second- 
semester freshmen would enjoy upper-class 
hours (see next point) , also with parental 
consent, (3) upperclassmen would have visi- 
tation hours of: for the boys, 2 p.m. to 
midnight Sunday through Thursday, 2 p.m. to 
1 a.m. Friday and Saturday; for the girls, 
from 2 p.m. until the dorm closes each 
night , and (4) the preceding three points 
would be implemented in conjunction with the 
recommendations submitted by the group head- 
ed by Dean Miller, which was to suggest al- 
ternative proposals "for social interaction" 
besides just open visitation. 

Monday, the proposals of the Student 
Life Committee were submitted to President

THE CONGLOMERATE 



October 13, 1972! 




Gentleman Hike Marcel 1 and Gentlewoman 
Netta Bares, above, ponder the wherefores . 

New Lady and Gent, 
Frosh Senators Picked 

by John Wiggin 

Two things are certain about this year's 
student elections. They have been emotional, 
therefore dispelling some of the apathy that 
usually surrounds campus elections, and they 
have had a rather different flavor because 
of the emotionalism and also because of the 
candidates themselves . 

Highlighting the elections were the 
freshmen races for seats on the Senate. In 
the Freshman male senatorial race, Joey 
Lacoste won a majority of the votes in Mon- 
day's primary over Jim Morris and Tracy 
Howard (49-34-11, respectively). Mary Jane 
Peace lacked only two votes for a majority 
in the primary, but won in a run-off with 
Jonna Jones (65-30). One vote separated 
Karen Stephenson and Jonna Jones in the 
primaries . 

Holly Hess, sole announced candidate, 
was elected to the vacant Junior female 
Senate seat in the primary election over 
any write-in candidates on the ballot. 

Centenary students chose Netta Hares 
as Centenary Lady and Mike flarcel as 
Centenary Gentleman in the run-offs. Kathy 
Stephenson and Sharon McCallon were in the 
run-off with Netta (Hares 114, Stephenson 93, 
McCallon 87) . Mike beat out Chad Carnahan 
by a narrow margin (147-141) in the run-off 
for Centenary Gent. 

In an attempt to give the students more 
voice in making the decisions affecting the 
student body, the election of Centenary 
Beauties was for the first time left to the 
students. The twelve girls who received the 
most nominations in Monday's election were 
placed on the ballot for Tuesday's election. 
From the twelve, the seven who received the 
most votes were chosen for Centenary Beau- 
ties. Those girls are: Carol Brian, Leslie 
Goens , Sharon McCallon, Joyce Carlson, Jonna 
Jones, Kathy Stephenson, and Larin Graves. 

Barry Williams, head of the Senate 
election committee, ^aid that voting had 
been heavier than expected. 269 people cast 
ballots in Monday's election, with 300 people 
voting in the final election. Barry also 
said that anyone wishing to contest the 
elections must contact him or the vice- 
president of the S.G.A. within 10 days. 

In the W. S.G.A. frosh election, Leslie 
Bennett received a majority in the primary 
to be elected to one of two vacant freshman 
seats in the W. S.G.A. Cindy Benoit and 
Jan Gresham went in the run-off for the other 
vacant seat, with Cindy Benoit taking the 
majority of the votes in the final election. 

The election of the men's judicial 
boards was also included in the election. 
Three boards, Cline, Rotary, and off-campus, 
were chosen. Elected were Browne and Wood- 
ruff at Rotary, Hardt and Musselman at Cline, 
and Chad Carnahan, Ed Hiendlmayr, and 
Curtis Melancon from the town students. 

Visitation for LSU Greeks 

A nronosal to allow visitation riphts for 
the otmosite sex in the orivate living areas 
of fratemitv ,wd sorority houses at LSU in 
Baton Rouge has been submitted to Dean .Tames 
W. Peddoch, vice chancellor for. Student 
Affairs, for annroval . 

The proposal was apnroved unanimously by 
Panhellenic Council and IFC earlier last week. 
The oroposal will be optional for those fra- 
ternities and soroities which do not want the 
visitation riehts. 



Griff ith Heads Alums 

Centenary College has a new Alumni 
Director this year. His name is Mac 
Griffith, replacing Bob Holladay. Mr. 
Griffith is a '69 Centenary Physics and 
Math graduate, has taught here on a 
part-time basis, and has worked in our 
Admissions Department. He beat out 
several other candidates for the job over 
a five-week selection period. 

His job, as he sees it, is to show 
alums that Centenary still cares for her 
own, even long after they have extended 
their wings and departed the collegiate 
nest. It is also to remind them that the 
College ever and anon needs their help, 
including help in recruiting (a major 
factor with all Centenary departments) . 

His specific duties include Home- 
coming, sending out news to alumni (the 
Development Department publishes Centen- 
ary, a magazine for alums) , the Alumni 
Board, the Great Teachers Fund, Alumni 
Scholarships, Outstanding Teacher, Hall 
of Fame, and the Century Club. 

He definitely needs, he stressed, 
student help of many sorts, not only 
for the various projects his office needs 
must conduct, but as well in the routine 
and daily functions of his department. 
He does not expect, Mr. Griffith made clear, 
student anger over Dr. Allen's dormitory 
visitation actions to keep students from 
assisting him in these activities . 

While he has no definite plans for the 
future in his department, Mr. Griffith 
pointed out that he has complete freedom 
to try what he sees fit, although plans are 
discussed with the other members of the 
Development Department, and, of course, 
President Allen has veto power in the final 
analysis. 

Smelly Lobby 

A strong and revolting stench, smelling quite 
similiarly to beer-and-pizza upchuck, hit 
the lobby of Cline Dorm Monday night. 

According to Byron T. Wells, resident 
expert on vomit, the inhabitants of the dorm 
made every attempt to locate the source 6f the 
smell, but to no avail. Wells said several 
students searched the entire lobby, includ- 
ing air vents and the like without accosting 
the offending substance or substances. 

As of this writing (Tuesday morning) , 
the smell was still there. How long it 
would last is unknown. 

The Big List 

Ever wonder whose - names make it into that 
big red barrel for "Who's Who" nominations? 
The following list, furnished by Dean Rawlin- 
son, should satisfy your curiosity. 

Final selections are made by the faculty 
members of the Committee on Student Life, 
after determining whether the nominee meets 
certain selective criteria. This list, 
dated Monday, is not final, and not all list- 
ed are qualified.

George McGovern has won heavy support 
in at least one of America's significant 
sectors. 25 of this year's 32 Rhodes 
Scholars have endorsed the South Dakota 
Senator in his attempt to dethrone 
Richard Nixon. 



A decision is expected sometime after 
the November elections from the Civil Aero- 
nautics Board (one of several Federal gov- 
ernment oligarchies regulating the air 
travel industry) on whether domestic air- 
lines will be allowed to continue youth 
fare rates.

Pledges Abolished 

Oklahoma State University's chapter of 
Lambda Chi Alpha social fraternity, Alpha 
Eta Zeta, is the first Greek organization 
on campus to eliminate its pledging pro- 
gram. 

A new "associate member' program, 
initiated by the fraternity's national office • 
on voluntary basis for individual chapters, 
shortens the pledging period to eight to 
12 weeks , compared with some 20 weeks under 
the nledge system. 

Gl Benefits Bloom 

Almost 350,000 veterans and servicemen 
with less than a high school education have 
entered training under the G. I. Bill, Ad- 
ministrator of Veterans Affairs Donald E. 
Johnson said today. The VA chief predicted 
that even larger numbers will take advan- 
tage of their G. I. benefits under the stim- 
ulus of new government programs geared to 
support and encourage the back-to-school 
movement . 

The participation rate for "disadvan- 
taged veterans" (those who have not com- 
pleted high school) rose from 16.7 percent 
as of June 30, 1971, to 23.0 a year later. 

Among the new government programs that 
will tum even more of the "turned off" 
toward training, Johnson said, is a new 
program announced last week by the Depart- 
ment of Health, Education and Welfare.

Buckley at Forums 

A cultural and social critic, author, 
film script writer and platform personal- 
ity comes to Centenary on Monday, Oct. 16, 
at 8:00 p.m. when Reid Buckley speaks at . 
Hurley Auditorium. 

An eloquent spokesman for the conserva- 
tive point of view, Forums speaker Buckley 
is known for his extraordinary ability to . 
think on his feet and for his perceptive 
and witty repartee. Of himself he says: "I'm 
a Christian, Libertarian conservative. This 
day and age, how radical can you get?" 

A son of the legendary oil explorer Wil- 
liam F. Buckley, he is the younger brother 
of the Hon. James Buckley, Senator from New 
York State, and of William F. Buckley, Jr., 
editor-in-chief of National Review . 

Strongly opinionated and possessing a 
lively imagination, as befits a novelist, 
Reid Buckley is always taking a searching 
look at contemporary society and prognosti- 
cating on its future. 

The author of The Eye of the Hurricane , 
a novel stressing the ecological depredation 
Americans have committed on nature and their 
own spiritual heritage, Reid Buckley has 
contributed to Vogue , Diplomat , The Atlantic 
Monthly , Life and other magazines"! He him- 
self has been assistant to the editor of 
Freeman Magazin e, and a contributing editor 
of both National Review (under the pen name 
of Peter Crumpet) and of Triumph magazine. 
He lias just completed a novel of morals and 
manners set in Spain to be called Servants 
and their Masters and to be published in 
January of 1973, as well as having done four 
screen plays, one of which is currently in 
production. 

Schooled in England, Mexico and the Uni- 
ted States, Buckley took his B. A. degree 
at Vale University in 1952, distinguishing 
himself there as a debator, editor and 
writer. 

Reid Buckley is well acquainted with life 
pain, where he lived for many years, and 
in Portugal , France and other European 
countries as well . 



MLP Children's Theater 

by Robert Buseick and Betty Blakley 
Children's Theater, or better yet "Theatre 
Designed for Children" is an active part of 
the theatre program at Centenary College. As 
a training device for actors it is one of 
the most effective ways to develop broad and 
yet clearly designed techniques in acting 
for the student. It also provides an exper- 
ience for students to understand audiences 
and their reactions, as no audience is as 
truthful or honest as is an audience made up 
of children. Children know what they like 
and if they do not like what they are being 
given they have no hesitation in telling it 
loud and clear. 

For the past four years at least one 
show a year has been given with a children's 
audience clearly in mind. This year for 
the first time the actual production will be 
moved out of the Marjorie Lyons Playhouse 
and into the Smith Building Auditorium for 
six performances the last three Saturdays in 
October with matinee performances at 1 and 
3 p.m. 

The show is called TAKE ME TO THE TREA- 
SURE and was written by two young playwrights 
in Oklahoma who believe in allowing the aud- 
ience to be involved in important matters re- 
lated to the story and in some cases to shape

of the need for close actor-audience relation 
the Smith Building was selected and the show

Four very experienced Centenary College 
students make up the talented cast and in- 
cludes Cece Russell, Susie Gates. Dan Chris-

Princess Telmeetru (Susie Gates) of the 
Sunshiny Indians knows the secret of the 
buried treasure. Bad Bart (Jerry Benefiel) 
is determined to find it himself and chases 
the princess to steal her treasure map. 
What Bad Bart doesn't know is that there is 
no map. This puts the Princess in real 
danger. Enter Teddy Drew (Dan Christiaens) , 
an itinerant artist, and Madame Florita 
Flouncebustle (Cece Russell), owner of a 
secondhand "trash or treasure" store, to 
save the day. Madame Flouncebustle master- 
minds a plan that enlists the aid of Teddy 
Drew to rescue the princess. You'll have 
to see the play to know how it ends. 

The production would be enjoyable for any

more if they bring a child, age 4 to 12. with 
them. Be sure not to miss TAKE ME TO THE

ROLLING BACK THE WATERS 

To the Editor: 

In November the people of Louisiana vote 
on Constitutional Amendment #6 whose passage 
is vital to the safety of our people and to 
the economic growth of South Louisiana and 
Greater New Orleans. 

This amendment raises the Orleans Levee 
Board's millage by 2-1/2 mills and dedicates 
this money to hurricane protection. 

Without this increase in millage all 
work will stop on the Lake Pontchartrain and 
Vicinity Hurricane Protection Project. The 
state will lose matching federal funds, and 
a $300,000,000 construction project will not 
get off the ground. 

Mich more important, however, is the need 
to protect lives and property. Studies by 
the U.S. Corps of Engineers and by the 
National Hurricane Center show that a 
hurricane similar to Camille, or even 
Betsy, passing New Orleans on a critical 
path would put ten feet of water on Canal 
Street, drown 100,000 human beings and so 
$1,000,000,000 worth of property damage. 
We are vulnerable to this destruction un- 
less this project is completed. 

Without this project the U. S. Corps 
of Engineers estimates that the eastern 
part of New Orleans , that part east of 
the Industrial Canal , will suffer flood- 
ing at least once every forty years . How 
in the world can we proceed with develop- 
ment in this area with this catastrophic 
threat hanging over the lives and pro- 
perty of our people? 

The passage of such an important, 
necessary amendment should be easy, but 
although it was approved in the city by 
the voters who would pay for it, the 
amendment failed to carry statewide. Now 
our backs are to the wal 1 , the money has 
run out and the work will stop. 

We need the help of all community 
leaders in the passage of this amendment. 
Only through the support and endorsement 
of "Concerned Citizens", such as yourself, 
will we be able to make this project a 



'Those who have had 

a chance for four years 

and could not produce peace 

should not be given 

another chance.''

editorial endorsement of Amendement #6 by 
your newspaper. 

Very truly yours,

Speaker's Corner 

No Two Masters 

by Jeff Daiell 
I am writing this a week before you read 
it, two nights after having seen Love Story 
for the second time. I cried; I'll admit it. 
I did the first time, too, even hearing it 
in Spanish with English sub -titles (this 
was in Little Havana in Miami) . The only 
persons who would not cry at Love Story are 
smart -aleck aspiring Tarzans seeking to dis- 
play their pseudo-gonadal sophistication 
(not-crying at Love Story being easier than 
stuffing a wadded-up pair of socks down one's 
crotch). Indeed, if one accepts Robert Hein- 
lein's criterion of what constitutes true 
art (I accent it as one of two possible 
criteria) , the evocation of emotion from the 
beholder, then Love Story is superlative art. 
If you don't, it was still skillfully con- 
structed; call it trash, but brilliantly- 
engineered trash. So almost everybody (note 
above mentioned exceptions) cried. 

With me, though, the tears were not mere- 
ly for the pathos of the situation, but also 
for the injustice of it all. Yeah, yeah, 
Love Story is fiction, sure; but would it 
have 'been" anywhere near as devastatingly ef- 
fective had it not been a reasonably accurate 
reflection of true life as it happens hun- 
dreds of times across the world everyday? 
Of course not. So I saw Love Story as in- 
dicative of the cruelty of fate. 

The first time I saw Love Story , and the 
second time, T wanted to go out and find God 
and give him a savage kick in the genitals. 
I couldn't find him the first time. The 
second time I didn't even bother to look. 

But it made me think about people 

neonle who worship God any (G)god. 

With occurences like the one portrayed by 
Love Story happening every day, to hundreds 
of people, all over the world; people who 
have done nothing to deserve such cruel 
canrice, innocent people whose only pas- 
sionate deeds were those of love; with al 1 
the wretchedness of fate, how can any rat- 
ional entity reconcile this with the con- 
cent of a (G)god? How can any thinking nerson 
recognize God as anything but the world's 
most convenient excuse, cop-out, line of 
least resistance? 

• illy, since if a (O)god exists, 
it could be evil as well as beneficient, 

tss, how can anybody conceivably wor- 
ship such a creature 9 By what grotesque and 
hideous Dcrversion of morality and sanity

laurels, dance its glory, pay lhamage in

arbitrary, capricious, and infantile; a 
dangerous companion and a terrible master. 
Any true adherent to morality will recoil 
in shuddering and nauseated horror from 
this wretched fiend; those who slaver 
fawningly after it have abdicated their 
very humanity. 

For those who have not as yet cast their 
lots, the time has come to choose; to choose 
whether one will side with the forces of Han 
and of Life, or with the forces of God and 
of Death. It cannot rationally be both 
ways. As Yeshua the carpenter himself said, 
"No man can serve two masters." 

Nor can there be any moral middle eround. 
To quote John Gait, in Ayn Rand's Atlas 
Shrugged , "There are two sides to every 
issue. One side is right, and the other is 
wrong; but the middle is always evil." So, 
people, in the words of Francisco d' Anconia 
fsame book): 'Take your choice — there is 
no other — and your time is running out." 

Editor's Note: 

My Dear Wormwood , 

I enjoyed the clipping you sent me writ- 
ten by your patient Jeff Daiell, and was 
surnrised to learn that this attack was cir- 
culated in The Enemy's own territory . The 
article (in a CONGLOMERATE opinion column) 
surely will please Our Father Below, because 
it shows a real weakness in The Enemy's 
camp. I do not understand The Enemy's to- 
lerant ways which permit, in his own halls 
of learning, that which Our Father would call 
sedition; but The Enemy apparently works in 
ways giving some sort of "self-determination" 
or "freedom" to his subjects. All the better 
for the success of Our Father's disciples , 
eh? 

Your affectionate uncle,

EMPEROR'S CLOTHES

Editor's Note: Jeff Daiell's article 
a couple of weeks ago concerning McGovern's 
attitudes on wealth attempted to scourge 
the candidate from the right. The following 
article takes another perspective. 

WEALTH IS SAFE WITH McGOVERN 

Presidential hopeful George S. McGovem 
went to Wall Street well before Labor Day 
to spell out his plans to tax the rich. Yet 
so far the princes of finance have steered 
the market clear of a crash which would 
punish the Senator for his would-be populism. 

The reason for such calm, if we are to 
believe the pollsters and the pundits, is 
simply that America's financial managers do 
not believe that Senator can win in November. 
So why should big money worry? 

But there's more to Wall Street's bliss 
than that. 

With or without Senator McGovem as Pre- 
sident, in the next four years Congress will 
face mounting pressure to reform the tax 
system and, until new loopholes can be cre- 
ated, to sharpen the tax bite on the rich. 

That much is inevitable, and the smart 
money knows it. 

What now reassures them, though, is that 
even "radicals" like Senator McGovem have 
no plan to break up or redistribute already 
existing fortunes. The goal is simply a pro- 
gressive tax on income, with no concern at 
all about the more enduring source of pri- 
vilege and power -- accumulated wealth. 

A recent article in the influential 
Business Week makes clear the -ost of this 
omission. While the top 10 percent of Ameri- 
can adults get 29 percent of all income, the 
magazine reported, they own 56 percent of 
all personal property and financial assets. 
The top one percent alone own roughly 25 per- 
cent of the wealth. 

The down side of the coin presents an 
even more dramatic picture. While the bot- 
tom half of all income recipients in 1969 
drew slightly less than one quarter of all 
personal income, their share of the wealth 
was just three percent. The lowest 10 per- 
cent of the population actually owned less 
than nothing, owing more than they owned. 

Worse yet, if Business Week is correct, 
the gap between rich and poor is probably 
growing, with obvious impact on the poor 
and needy. 

Senator McGovern's tax package, if 
adopted, would hardly affect these numbers.

It might increase the bite on the yearly 
income of the rich, particularly from owner- 
ship of oil wells, real estate, and money. 
It would also up inheritance taxes, forcing 
those with large estates to rely more heavi- • 
ly on tax-avoiding trusts and foundations. 

But if Senator McGovem is the worst 
Wall Street has to fear, wealth itself is 
safe. Equality in the U. S., it turns out, 
is still as distant as it is in some Banana 
Republic. 

Rhodes Rules Detailed 

The time is nigh for those who wish to 
become Rhodes Scholars to do something about 
it. To qualify as a Phodes Scholar, one 
must be a male U.S. citizen, sinqle, between 
eighteen and 24 as of the first of October 
(relaxation of maximum age possible for 
veterans), be at least a junior, and receive 
official endorsement from your college or 
university. 

That just qualifies you. The virtues 
forming the basis of selection are (1) scho- 
lastic ability, (2) manliness, veracity, 
courage, duti fulness, sympathy for the less 
fortunate, and good fellowship, (3) good 
moral character, and (4) nhysical vigor. 

Each selectee receives certain school 
fees, naid to his college, olus a yearly 
stinend oaid to him directly (each scholar 
receives total comoensation of about 1600 
British pounds a year, or $3840). 

If you think you qualify, and are 
interested, see Dean Marsh in Hamilton Hall 
for details and an application. Good luck, 
Scholars! 

Free Research Aid 

The Library offers a Friday the 13th 
Reminder for students to do their term 
paper research early. In most cases, 
the Centenary collection will be adequate 
to supply the materials needed. Students 
who choose exotic topics, however, may wish 
to resort to the interlibrary loan service 
to complete their investigations. The 
Library can usually produce the desired 
item within a few days through the Green 
Gold Library System in Shreveport or the 
Southern Col lege -University Union in Nash- 
ville. Some items take longer. It would 
be well to anticipate needs by a couple of 
weeks , so that you can be sure to have 
the item that you want while it still can 
be useful. 

Iris Takes Stern Meaures 

Well, it seems that at least one more 
member of the Shreveport coninunity is singing 
the "Jailhouse Blues" tonight. And for a 

pretty half- reason at that. It seems 

that last Sunday evening Ms. Iris Irving was 
taking her weekly stroll to Safeway to buy 
her dinner when she was hailed on Rutherford 
by three individuals whose napes were of 
questionable color. Ms. Irving, being of the 
new breed of Centenary Ladies , chose not to 
acknowledge their advances. The gentlemen 
went on their way, .'Is. Irving went on hers 
and all was well. For a while. 

The food was bought and disposed of. Ms. 
Irving then decided to return to Centenary 
College and her studies and, much to one 
individual 's chagrin, chose the same route 
home. Lo and behold, who should she

sight. Below: American Party Presidential 
candidate John Schmitz in Bossier City. 




again encounter, but her three acquaintances 
of a few moments earlier. Ms. Irving chose 
to follow the same tactics that had pre- 
viously proved effective. This time, how- 
ever, it seems that at least one of the 
three had disposed of another six-pack or two 
and this time was much more aggressive. 
Within a matter of minutes the gentleman in 
question had his arm around Ms. Irving, at 
which point she rather violently pushed it 
away. The young man, unable to cope with 
such a violent rebuke then proceeded to 
bite Ms. Irving on the derriere. He im- 
mediately departed for more hospitable 
company. 

Ms. Irving, not believing what had just 
taken place, decided to get his donkey and 
call the police. She did, they came and by 
midnight the "biter" (Ms. Irving being the 
"bitee") was apprehended. And, upholding 
her dignity as a human being AND a woman, 
Ms. Irving signed a complaint and will meet 
her friend once again in a court of law. 

Much praise should be given to Ms. Irving 
for her perserverence , and we feel certain 
that everything will turn out alright in the 
end. 



SLTA Meet 



Riley and Diann Bratton, instructors at 
Booker T. Washington High School, addressed 
the Centenary SLTA last week on the "Chal- 
lenge of Teaching." 

According to Mr. Bratton, today's teacher 
is faced with the responsibility of devising 
methods and techniques to interest the stu- 
dents. Closely correlated with this variety 
of teaching methods is the overall enthusiasm 
which a teacher must conn"nicate to the class.

October 13, 1972

Allen's Decision: Yes 

John H. Allen. At a meeting of the Com- 
mittee Tuesday, Chairman Robert Ed Taylor 
reported the President's response. Said 
Robert Ed, "Dr. Allen's response was that 
the Student Life Committee report is ac- 
ceptable and workable," and although the 
"implementation of the honor system" sug- 
gested by the Committee would require time, 
"in the meantime the suggested hours can be 
used, using the current system of monitor- 
ing." 

President Allen's decision was to become 
effective today. Committee Member Cindv 
Yeast wondered, "How is this plan possible 
without making a few moves here and there?", 
referring to the fact that many freshmen 
room with upperclassmen. According to 
Chairman Taylor, this problem would have to 
be taken care of by the honor system, since 
the Student Life Committee included in its 
proposals to Dr. Allen that no room changes 
be made pursuant to the plan. 

The plan, which, while reducing the 
visitation hours from last year for boys , 
actually increases those for girls , was 
adopted after a running student-Administrat- 
ion battle which began virtually simultane- 
pusly with the semester. 

Dr. Allen had reached his decision to 
reduce visitation hours this summer, when 
most students were not on campus , after 
consultation with a small student-parent- 
faculty committee concerned with the quest- 
ion of dorm hours , and studying the answers 
to a controversial questionaire sent out to 
the parents of some Centenary students . 
Students had protested the decision with 
a mass petition bearing over 250 names to 
the president of the College, a Student 
Senate resolution, and a full - page ad pur- 
chased by the students themselves in the 
CONGLOMERATE. Later, protests took the 
form of panty raids, a meeting outside James 
Dorm, and an early-morning sit-in the James 
lobby . 

During this, the Student Life Committee 
had passed a resolution urging the return 
to last year's larger hours, and the Faculty 
had expressed its opinion that visitation 
hours were a responsibility of the students 
through the students ' own organizations (dorm 
councils, etc.). The Student Life Committee 
had then sought and obtained an audience 
with the president on October 5th, and in a 
meeting with the students that evening in 
the ampitheater listed the President's 
reasons for his decision, which were: (1) 
the administrative difficulties involved; 
(2) the actuality or potential of/for in- 
vasion of privacy; (3) the need of freshmen 
for a more structured atmosphere as they 
work into the Centenary system, and (4) pres- 
sure from the President's "Constituency". 
Apparently, the new agreement eliminates or 
handles these difficulties. 

It was decided at that meeting to formu- 
late alternatives at a special meeting of 
the Student Life Committee the next after- 
noon, Friday the 6th, at 3 p.m. It was at 
that meeting that the latest plan, this one 
accepted by President Allen, was constructed. 

Dean Miller and Dean of Women Shirley 
Rawlinson set to work after the Tuesday 
meeting to make available to the student 
body the newly -adopted rules and information 
relevant to them, such as the date of effect. 
So, it would appear that this campus is- 
sue has been resolved. It leaves the quest- 
ions of coed forms , alcohol on campus , the 
proper role of student government, and 
several other points of contention still 
alive; but progress is progress, and the 
(at least) temporary breathing-spell lull 
around campus is certain to be welcomed by 
most Centenary students as a needed change of 
pace. 

THE DORMITORY LETTERS 

Dr. Allen: 

After meeting with you last Thursday, the 
Student Life Committee felt that it might 
make some contribution to the solution of the 
dissatisfaction over present dormitory visita- 
tion policy. The Committee believes that in 
our conversation with you we reached some in- 
sights on possible directions. We felt that 
we might break out of the "no-spring ..ours--- 
yes, spring hours" cycle on the basis of your 
suggestion that you would consider expanded 
alternate hours for upperclassmen while pre- 



serving more rigid schedules for freshmen. 

Accordingly, we went to the open student 
meeting at 6:45 and attempted to convey some 
of this "new attitude", while receiving from 
the assembled group of about 125, broad 
suggestions . Our efforts were not entirely 
successful or happily received by all gathered, 
Nevertheless, we called a second open meet- 
ing for Friday afternoon to make firm alter- 
nate proposals. About fifty students attended 
and made comments and suggestions for alter- 
nate hours and procedures. The enclosed 
proposal reflects the fruit of those meetings. 

It was the feeling of the committee 
(specifically those members present) that we 
should not simply submit a proposal for hours 
change, but provide some justification for the 
hours based on individual responsibility. 
Consequently, we have proposed that visitation 
practices in the dormitories be based upon an 
honor system and related to some of the prin- 
ciples enunciated in the purpose of the 
college. We believe that such philosophical 
grounding may serve in the effort to com- 
municate effectively with our other consti- 
tuencies outside the campus. 

The entire "flap" over dormitory hours 
may give us an opportunity to develop a 
philosophy of residential living at the small, 
church- related, liberal arts college. This 
philosophy could enable us to further unify 
our efforts in the attempts to "educate the 
whole man". 

We would hope that these suggested al- 
ternate hours would be combined with the 
efforts toward other alternatives for social 
interaction being developed by Dean Miller. 

The enclosed proposal, especially the 
statement relative to the honor system, de- 
serves more careful delineation and explora- 
tion. The Committee would like to explore 
this with you. 

The Committee noted in its meeting a 
strong desire upon the part of students to 
communicate directly with you about the entire 
matter. You are respectfully invited to 
attend the Student Senate meeting Tuesday, 
October 10, 10:40 a.m. to discuss these 
matters . 

Cordially, 

Student Life Committee 
Robert Ed Taylor, Chairman 
Oct. 9, 1972 

Proposal: 

The Committee on Student Life in its 
Open Meeting of October 6, 1972, voted to 
submit to President Allen the following pro- 
posal for dormitory visitation. 

Understanding the purpose of the college 
to be expressed in such words as : 

The College purpose to challenge its 
students to serve society by exempli- 
fying the highest Christian ethic; 
to provide them with a basic under- 
standing of human affairs and pro- 
blems; to equip them to think clear- 
ly, honestly, and constructively, and 
to conmunicate effectively . . . 
The Student Life Committee propses that 
dormitory visitation practices be based upon 
an honor system, the details of which are to 
be worked out. Although this provides one 
solution to the problem of administration 
and supervision, its greater value lies in 
attempt to provide a stimulus and structure 
for maturity and moral growth. The honor 
system promotes individual growth by pre- 
senting to the student a proper balance of 
freedom and responsibility. It allows the 
individual an atmosphere of freedom in which 
to make a moral choice, while it imposes up- 
on him the responsibility for self-discipline 
and the discipline of his fellows who are 
also pledged in the same convenant community. 

The honor system has proved its worth 
at Centenary over the past 15 years in the 
academic area. We believe that it can be 
extended to include residential living and 
social interaction. 

If an honor system of supervision is 
adopted the Committee feels that the hours 
can be implemented without necessitating a 
change in the present dormitory room assign- 
ments. 

The Committee on Student Life in its 
open meeting of October 6, 1972, recommends 
the following hours for dormitory visita- 
tion: 

1- First Semester Freshman Hours Wit h 
Parental Consen t ~ 

3-5 Sunday -Thursday

To: Chaplain Robert Ed Taylor 

Chairman, Student Life Cojimittee 
From: John H. Allen 

I have received your letter and report 
of the Student Life Committee dated October 
9, 1972. I have decided that the recommen- 
dations are acceptable and workable within 
the limits of our ability to provide super- 
vision. Because of the need to revise 
work schedules for R.A.s and other person- 
nel, we should not institute the new visi- 
tation program until Friday, October 13. 
Second-semester freshmen may obtain a 
parental -permission form from the Office of 
the Dean of Students , and upon return of 
that form they will have the same visitat- 
ion hours as the upperclassmen. 

We will begin shortly to develop a 
visitation honor code, and will work close- 
ly with your committee in its development. 

John H. Allen, President 

Excerpts from the 

Preliminary Report on Alternatives to a 
Return to Dormitory Visitation Practices of 
Last Spring 

by Dean Miller 
The SUB is the alternative with the most 
potential. By doing a systematic study of 
space utilization, decor and theme options 
the big, impersonal main floor could become 
a focal point of campus activity, particul- 
arly in the evening hours . The following 
suggestions we have are "spur-of-the moment" 
ideas and should be evaluted in detail be- 
fore implementation: 

1. Keep the snack bar open from 8:00 
P.M. until midnight seven days a 
week by hiring up to three student 
workers . The cost would be about 
$135.00 per week, some of which 
would be off-set by the profits 
from food sales. 

2. Develop another set of movable 
partitions in conjunction with the 
pillars in the game table area. This 
move would produce two rooms separated 
by a mall , yet continue to allow 
flexibility of use because of their 
mobility. 

3. Relocate the bookstore in the Old 
Administration Building so that it 
would be more accessable to off- 
campus trade. 

4. Move the game tables and juke box to 
the old bookstore location. 
Complete the Tudor decor in the old 
game tables area. 
Purchase a second AM-FM radio and 
amplifier to "pipe" music into the 
old game tables area. 
Develop the mall area into an art 
display area and sitting room with 
coffee tables and comfortable chairs. 
We think this idea to be our best 
one: Construct several (maybe SO) 
booths on the order of the one shown 
in the attached drawing. Such booths 
could be mounted on casters and easi- 
ly relocated should the entire main 
floor space be needed. These booths 
could be wired for varied intensity 
light (and possibly for sound) and 
so could be used for study, informal 
communication, and throueh the addi- 
tion of windowed doors , privacy with 
unobtrusive supervision. I believe 
it is privacy (intimacy, if you will) 
which is what the students want who 
are interested in the visitation 
issue for other than political rea- 
sons. Because of their self-contain- 
ed nature different activities could 
go on in adjoining booths. 
Draperies on all windows, carpeting 
which could be rolled up, and a false 
ceiling in the room between the stage 
and snack bar could be added for at- 
mosDheric warmth.

Tarot Cards 

of identifying with its "vibrations." 

The history of The Tarot is most 
fascinating. The symbols of the cards, 
it is generally understood, are derived 
from Egyptian mythology. There are 
different theories related to this. 
One of these is that the cards were in- 
vented by Thoth, a counselor to Osiris 
who was the scribe of the Egyptian 
gods, god of wisdom and magic, creator 
of numbers and the measurer of" time. 
Another maintains that the cards of the 
Major Arcana (to be defined later) were 
somehow directly related to the initi- 
ation ceremonies into the Egyptian 
priesthood. However, an interpretation 
of the cards seems to disclose a close 
relationship to ancient religions and 
philosophies. It is amazing how close- 
ly The Tarot relates to the concepts 
presented by C. G. Jung and his theo- 
ries of myth and archetypes (an example 
for those who have studied this is 
significantly illustrated by the fact 
that the querent shuffles the deck 
four times and cuts it into thirds 
before handing it to the reader to be 
laid out for an interpretation). Eden 
Gray, in his book A Complete Guide to 
The Tarot (an excellent reference 
Tor anyone even vaguely interested 
in this) points out that "The true 
Tarot is symbolism: It speaks the 
language that arises from the col- 
lective mind of man." It is be- 
lieved that the cards were then 
carried throughout Europe by means 
of the gypsies. Decks of Tarot 
have been discovered dating all the 
way from the twelfth century. The 
cards were also used as a means of 
entertainment by the court jester 
during the Medieval Period in order 
to foretell the future of a noble. 
Quite often the noble would hire an 
artist to paint his cards depicting 
actual members of his court. Con- 
sequently, there are presently sev- 
eral different styles of Tarot, but 
all the styles seem to have the 
same basic concepts presented on the 
cards. 

The deck itself is, quite ob- 
viously, the parent to modem day- 
playing cards. The Tarot consists 
of seventy-eight cards all together. 
It is divided into two sections, the 
Major Arcana ( arcana is Latin for 
secrets) and the Minor Arcana. The 
cards of the Minor Arcana are fifty- 
six in quanity and are divided into 
four units- -Wands (Friendship), Cups 
(Love), Swords (Strife), and Pentacles 
(money) . These four units are com- 
parable to the four suits in a modern 
playing deck- -Clubs, Hearts, Spades 
and Diamonds. Each of the four units 
contain within it ten cards. The 
Major Arcana is made up of twen* 
two cards depicting symbolic figures 
representing the elements of nature, 
experiences of 'Ian in his spiritual 
Jiomey, his hopes, fears, joys, sor- 
rows and so forth . In a reading one 

1 is chosen to represent the 
querent by the reader on the basis of 
coloring, personality traits and what 
the reader feels suits the individual 
for the querent's specific mood at 
the time of the reading. Pat tie 
pointed out that often-times the same 
cards turn up repeatedly for the same 
individual | for example', Pattie did a 



reading for me at the end of the inter- 
view and when the cards were laid out, 
a specific suit appeared numerous 
times) . It was also indicated to me 
that the querent ' s mood at the time of 
the reading is extremely important, 
for the cards seem to respond directly 
to the emotional state of the querent . 

I asked Pattie what she attributed 
to the rise of interest in the occult 
and Tarot cards in particular during 
the latter part of the sixties. She 
stated that she feels that the Tarot 
fulfills many of the same needs as 
religion, or some sort of stable force 
against which an individual may set 
himself to understand his relationship 
to God, the universe and Man (she also 
pointed out that this interest has 
declined with rise of an interest in 
Christianity). Yet, she noted that 
she felt that many make the mistake 
of looking for security in The Tarot, 
for example, by expecting the cards to 
foretell the future. This, she stress- 
es, is something the cards cannot do 
and consequently, many are skeptical. 

Personally, I find The Tarot most 
fascinating and hope to be able to gain 
a greater understanding of it, for I 
can see much potential in an under- 
standing of the individual and the col- 
lective mind.

Up- And- Coming Heavies 

How many of us can remember a time 
when there was just "rock" and every- 
body who listened to it liked approxi- 
mately the same stuff? 

Nowadays the dividing lines are 
nretty clear. The subteen audience is 
hooked on music that has evolved from 
bubblegum to a surefire popular hit 
formula based on common archetypes of 
innocence. With the Partridge Family, 
the Jackson Five, the Osmonds, and all 
their spinoffs, and a large sec- 
rank including groups like the Gallery 
and Daniel Boone, subteen rock has more 
than ever become a world of its own. 
Those past their early 20 's are 
either sticking with the remnants of the 
late- '60 's hard rock movement or embrac- 
ing the new laid-back, shelter-seeking 
folk music. 

Right now it's the in-between seg- 
ment , the teenagers , who are making the 
most waves with their musical tastes. 
They lean to the so-called 'heavy" 
rock, whose roots can be traced back to 
1966: it's one of the few areas of rock 
where any exnerinentation is takine 
nlace. 

The second wave of heavy groups from 
Detroit has dried out and the third, 
composed mostly of English groups like 
Black Sabbath, is still coasting along. 
Now a fourth wave is upon us, made up of 
groups who seem to be popping up out of 
nowhere and everywhere. Some of them 
are dreadfully bad and others show pro- 
mise. 

The thing to rember about heavy rock 
is the importance of riffs. The music is 
built on riffs and rhythmic sequences 
that through repetition pound the song 
into your bones, if done effectively. A 
heavy rock group rises or falls on its 
ability to invent new riffs and ela- 
borate on them in an interesting fashion. 
Here're a few of the newcomers: 
Highway Robbery opens their first 
album (PCA 4735) with a good solid 
ousher called "Mystery Pider," fol- 
lowed by another fast one, "Fifteen," 
and by "Lazy Woman," which starts on 
a cunbersome bass line but builds in- 
to a Cream-style amphetamine lead 
guitar ramnage. Side two has two 
slow ones and a fairly good closing 
number called "Promotion Man." All 
things considered, Hiehway Robbery is 
one of the best new outings I 've heard 



lately. They have a good, loud, al- 
most-imaginative guitarist, strong 
vocals, and all they really lack at 
this point is a well-defined personali- 
ty. I think they'll develop one soon. 
Although they sound heavily English, 
Styx is from Chicago, and they're 
produced by the same guy who was 
responsible for the Shadows of Knight 
a few years back. Their sound is 
largely organ-based and their singing 
resembles the harmonies of Grand Funk 
or Chicago. They have a long suite 
called '?1ovement For the Common Man" 
that includes some interesting effects, 
and they cook at times on the other 
songs, but they don't seem to have the 
necessary drive to reach the too in 
their chosen genre. 
Much closer to what it's all about is 
"rsa Major, whose debut album (PCA 47- 
77) hits every base from the demonic 
scare -chords of Amon Duul II to a 
"Back to the Land" number in the Deep 
Purple style and an obligatory quiet 
song, "In My Darkest Hour," that's 
actually good. But "Liberty and 
Justice" is a dull song based on an 
extremely boring riff, so these guys 
miss getting top honors. 

That distinction goes to White 
Witch (Capricorn 0107) which to my mind 
has everything a group needs to command 
attention in the heavy sweepstakes. The 
singer has an incredible range, and the 
group shows an uncanny ability to sound 
like Black Sabbath at their best, yet 
they also manage to do a song like 
"Sleepwalk" that sounds like Abbey Poad 
if it had been recorded by the Steve 
Miller Band. Their riffs are consis- 
tently inventive, the songs all move and 
keep one fascinated with their use of 
special effects. They also appeal to 
the Jesus Freaks with 'Help Me Lord," 
the hippies with "It's So Nice To Be 
Stoned," and for those who require a 
gimmick (practically everybody these 
days) they've got mystic symbols 
scrawled all over their faces and a lot 
of promotional hokum about spiritual 
awareness and psychic witchcraft. A 
winning combination. They're from 
Georgia and should go far.

Sex and Christianity 



"Human Sexual Responsibility" was the 
topic under discussion last week when Dr. 
Harmon L. Smith, Associate Professor of 
'foral Theology at Duke University, ad- 
dressed a Thursday chapel audience as part 
of the Willson Lecture series. 

The purpose cf the lecture was to pre- 
sent a world-view to counteract the develop- 
ing concepts of people as mechanistic de- 
vices. Sexuality, taken as one of the 
many ways one can relate to others, is one 
of the functions which expresses awareness, 
according to Dr. Smith. 

The marriage ceremony itself, Dr. Smith 
stated (after showing a short film on mar- 
riage) , is perhaps the least important as- 
pect of marriage. The principles of joint - 
ness and reciprocity must exist in the couples 
themselves , "Dr. Smith believed, not just in 
the ceremony. Those who have communication 
and understanding before marriage will be 
more likely to achieve later sexual success, 
he said. 

The Willson Lectures are made possible 
by the generosity of Dr. and Mrs. J.M. 
Willson of Floydada, Texas, through an en- 
dowment provided a number of years ago in 
order to bring outstanding speakers and 
lecturers to Centenary in the fields of 
religion and education. 

Baptists to Convene 

Dr. David Poling, s>Tidicated religion 
columnist, and Mr. Theo Patnaik, Associate 
Secretary of Youth Work of the Baptist World 
Alliance, will be the featured speakers this 
month at the Louisiana State Baptist Convent- 
ion in Baton Rouge. 

A Rroup will leave the Baptist Center at 
2907 Woodlavn the afternoon of Friday, Oct. 
29, to attend to convention, and all inter- 
ested students are invited to attend. The 
convention runs through Sunday, Oct. 29. 

Danny Walker, sociology instructor at 
LSU-S, will lead one of the many seminars 
revolving around the theme, "Responding to 
His Lordship." 

Mr. Patnaik, a native of India, was 
converted to religious work at Billy 
Graham's 1956 Calcutta Crusade, and 
recently delivered S 100, 000 donated by 
Baptist World Alliance for Bangladesh 
refugees . 

From Albuquerque, New Mexico, Dr. 
Poling is past president of the Christian 
Herald . 

Trie cost of the trip will be four 
dollars ($1 for registration and $3 
for transportation) plus meals, with 
housing arranged by the convention hosts. 



w Fm all for open housing... 

I just don't want it in our lovely, peaceful neighborhood". This 
is pretty much the same thing as saying I'm for righting a social 
injustice as long as there is no cost to me. Has it ever worked 
out that way? This planet is our neighborhood. And all its people 
are neighbors in the community of man.

Just Because You 

Bite Your Nails You're 

Not Necessarily a 

Sexual Flop 

by Mary Ann Callahan 
The worst thing about being a psychology 
major is meeting people and having them ex- 
claim the inevitable, "You're studying psy- 
chology? Figure me out!" 

So you sigh and politely shake your 
head, indicating your lack of words at their 
ignorance, and then you explain that the 
mind is a very abstract concept and not some- 
thing that is conducive to the scientific 
method, and that what you really do is study 
behavior, and that you're not going to tell 
them that because they bite their nails , 
they're hung-up about sex. 

Members and students of the Psychology 
Department are not put to show Centenary 
College the ways of sanity (as if we knew) . 
We do not sit in judgement. If you have a 
problem and we can help, then fine, we'll 
do what we can; we'll listen all you want. 
But this is not the primary reason for 
our existence. 

Mainly, learning is the chief goal. To 
assist us in our Quest For Knowledge is 
our faculty: Dr. Gwin, acting chairman; 
Mr. Dulle; and the newest member, Dr. Bet- 
tinger. 

Dr. Bettinger is here after four years 
of teaching at Vanderbilt University. His 
particular specialty is in the area of 
physiological psychology. He brings with 
him fresh ideas, one the more spectacular 
of which is the possibility of some sort 
of field work with students gaining prac- 
tical experience through work in the com- 
munity. 

Experimentation is Mr. Dulle's forte. 
(Mr. Dulle, by the way, reports that his 
family is fine, his doctorate is coming 
along slowly but surely, and he is now 
playing on a faculty football team.) This 
year the department was granted use of East 
Colonial Hall as a laboratory. Students 
are breeding and raising their own rats 
this year, to be used in the study of con- 
ditioned behavior. At the end of the year, 
they are given away or destroyed (which 
is a terrible waste of life, as they are 
clean and affectionate little animals) . 

If one is discreet about it, rats make 
inconspicuous dorm pets. Some people 
don't like their tails (which, incidental- 
ly, are not hairless) , but this problem can 
be solved by pretending they are snakes. 

An exciting new addition to the experi- 
mental lab is the GSR machine --the cycle 
galmenometer, which is the principle in- 
strument used in lie detection (maybe this 
would be useful to University Court, Vida) . 

At this time, the students are in the 
process of organizing a Psychology Club, 
lack of organization having been one of 
the major shortcomings in the past. Plans 
are to invite speakers and make field trips, 
which have up until now not been possible. 
There has been recent interest stirred 
up by the current trend in psychology to- 
ward group work. Some students have ex- 
pressed a desire to set up group therapy- 
sessions on campus, delving into sensitivity 
and interactional behavior. 

"Drugs and Behavior" is the subject of 
the upcoming Interim psychology course, under 
Dr. Bettinger. An alternative course in 
biological clocks is being considered. 
Courses for next semester will include Theo- 
ries of Personality, taught by Mr. Dulle; 
Abnormal Psychology, taught by Dr. Bettinger, 
and Tests and Measurements, taught by Dean 
Miller. 

Any subject may be taught as a course if 
at least ten students sign a petition 
a me es to teach it 

(see p. S3 in the catalog). 

The Psycholc rtment may be small, 

but e r it turns out enough future 

Jimgs ;n- 

ners so that the chances are someone from 
Centenary might some e the universal 

problems of absurd behavior in this world. 




Extra-Sensory Dreams 

A television producer had a vivid 
dream of a hotly contested horse race 
in which three horses ran neck-and-neck 
to the finish line. When the announcer 
gave out their names, he said that the 
winner had been a very long shot. 

In the weeks follwing the dream, the 
producer could not restrain himself from 
avidly scanning the racing columns to find 
a race in which the three horses of his 
dream were to run. When he found such a 
race, he placed a very large bet on the 
winning horse of his dream, and he invited 
his business staff to join him in watching 
the race on television. The televised race 
was for him a very spooky event- -he had 
seen it all in his dream. Sure enough, the 
three horses of his dream raced right down 
to the wire and his horse won. 

Thelma Moss of the Neuro-psychiatric 
Institute, at UCLA, reports this story along 
with other horse-race predictive dreams in 
Psychic, February, 1971. She points out that 
while these dreams partly support Freud's 
notion of dreams as wish fulfillment, they 
suggest that, contrary to Freud, the future 
(as well as the past) may influence our 
dreams. There are many stories about pre- 
cognitive (future revealing) dreams and 
telepathic dreams --those pertaining to dis- 
tant current events . In fact most of the 
stories of spontaneous precognition and 
telepathy involve dreaming. This raises 
two questions: can dream ESP be verified in 
the laboratory and if so, what is there 
about the dream state that makes for ESP 
events? 

The fact that dreaming usually occurs 
when a sleeping person starts moving his 
eyes rapidly makes it possible to do con- 
trolled experiments with dreaming and tele- 
pathy. That is, you can have a person look 
at a randomly selected picture and attempt 
telepathically to convey the picture to a 
sleeping person in another room. An at- 
tendant can monitor a machine that records 
the sleeper's eye movements in order to 
awaken the sleeper after he ahs been dream- 
ing for a while. The sleeper can then be 
asked what he has been dreaming about. Such 
experiments began in 1962 at the Parapsycho- 
logy Foundation in Manhattan and continued 
in 1964 at the Maimonides Dream Laboratory 
in Brooklyn, New York. The experiments con- 
tinued throughout the '60 's and were sum- 
marized by the principal investigators, 
Montague Ullman and Stanley Krippner, in 
Dream Studies and Telepathy, published by 
The Parapsychology Foundation (New York, 
1970) . 

The first dreamer in these experiments 
was the well-known psychic, Eileen Garrett. 
The results were striking, but the controls 
were loose because the investigators were 
just trying to get a feel for the variables 
involved. Perhaps the most difficult vari- 
able to contend with is the opinion of the 
persen judging the dream reports. If you 
evaluate a dream report and look for cor- 
respondences with a target picture, how 
much does your own interpretation of words 
and phrases decide whether the dream is a 
"hit" or a "miss."■ , 

To deal with this difficulty, the re- 
searchrs (besides tightening all other 
aspects of the experiment) worked out an 
elaborate evaluation procedure that makes 
the results quite objective. After the 
dreamer was awakened for the last time, he 
was asked to rank a series of twelve random- 
ly ordered pictures, one of which had been 
the target picture, for similarity to his 
dream images. Also, four outside judges 
were sent 12 dream descriptions and 12 pic- 
tures and were asked to correlate the two 
sets. 

The statistics from all the evaluations 
were combine'', to see if there were signifi- 
cant correlations . The dreamers were paid 
volunteers who said they could fall asleep 
easily, dreamed frequently, remembered 



their dreams , and thought that tele- 
pathy was possible. Such people are 
quite easy to find (compared to psychics) 
so that the Maimonides procedure is being 
duplicated elsewhere. 

The hypothesis that pictures viewed 
by one person in one place can influence 
the dreams of another person in another 
place seems to be confirmed by the Maimo- 
ides experiments . For instance , a young 
man dreams about a jolly red-suited clown 
and "some sort of holiday," while a psy- 
chologist in another room looks at a 
picture of Santa Claus. But an even more 
striking thing has emerged from the sta- 
tistics . Dreamers seem to be influenced 
by pictures selected for them for future 
nights. This would be dreaming precog- 
nitively. 

So now dreaming precognition is being 
studied at Maimonides. Herbert Greenhouse 
reports in Psychic, December 1971, that 
the English psychic Malcolm Bessent was 
asked to dream about slides he would not 
see until the next night. So he was to 
be both the sender and receiver of the 
message: the future Bessent would send, 
to the present Bessent. And it worked! 
For instance, when a set of bird slides 
was the target, he dreamed of "experiments 
with birds," "different kinds of doves," 
and said, "I just have a feeling that the 
next target material will be about birds." 

Why the state of dreaming should be 
conductive to ESP is a difficult question. 
One clue may be that large amounts of 
alpha waves (8-13 cycles per second) and 
/or theta waves (6-8 c.p.s.) have been 
noticed by several investigators in the 
brain waves of telepathic receivers. 

Now it turns out that although the 
cortex of the dreaming brain is putting 
out beta waves (above 13 c.p.s.), the 
hippocampus (part of the. limbic region 
in the center of the brain) puts out 
very large theta waves during the dream 
state. In fact, the theta waves are so 
big they swamp the beta waves measured 
outside the skull at the back of the 
head. 

Hippocampal theta waves are also 
associated with orientation and learning. 
The concept that covers all these functions 
is "pattern recognition." It stands to 
reason that since the telepathic message 
seems to be a very weak signal with a lot 
of noise, the amplification of pattern re- 
cognition would be very useful for re- 
ceiving such signals. So hippocampal 
theta waves may be the key to understanding 
telepathy. If so, dreaming has provided 
that key. 




The Other 

by Taylor Caffery 

It's time for all good psychology 
students to pack up their notebooks, grab 
a white rat or two, and head out to the 
Quail Creek Cinema for a showing of Thomas 
Tryon's The Other . Director Robert Mulligan 
( Summer ot '42 , To Kill a Mockingbird) and 
cinematographer Robert Surtees ( Summer of 
'42 ) have collaborated with author-producer 
Try on in The Other to produce a careful , 
intricate psychological chiller with over- 
tones of psychiatry, mysticism, and Hitch- 
cock. 

Chris and Martin Udarnoky star as two, 
well, strange little kids who, along with 
Uta Hagen as their grandmother, share a 
supernatural secret enabling each to project 
his senses into other beings. No, that's 
not the "secret" the ads wam us against 
revealing, which can be learned only at the 
flick. 

The mystery involves the viewer from the 
opening scene, where one of the Udarnoky 
twins, hiding in a beautifully photographed 
green forest , inspects with seeming deep pur- 
pose a ring kept with another wrapped, solid 
object (revealed later, to shudders) in a 
metal box inside his shirt. Hearing the ap- 
proach of his grandmother, the boy shoves 
the ring and box out of sight. 

The boy, the box, the twin ("the other' 
and a tense family situation all to add up 
to murder, stormy nights, magic, and a side- 
show-like fascination with the macabre. 

The Other opens today at Quail Creek.

For the second year in a row it appears 
that Coaches Larry Little and Riley Wallace 
have assembled a group of outstanding fresh- 
man basketball players at Centenary. Both 
coaches have expressed their satisfaction 
with this year's group. 

Assistant Coach Wallace says this year's 
freshman have more potential than last year's 
outstanding freshman team which posted a 20- 
4 record. Specifically, he points to the 
size and rebounding potential of this year's 
group. However, he foresees that this year's 
team will be harder to bring together than 
last year's, which was a well-oiled machine 
all last season. He promises, emphatically, 
however, that the five on the court this 
year will be a unit working together. 

Head Coach Little says that this year's 
group contains more diamonds in the rough 
and is less polished than last year's group. 
He predicted also that this year's group will 
show more improvement as the season progress- 
es than last year's group which played equal- 
ly well most of last season. 

Of course, most of the interest in this 
year's freshmen recruits has centered on 
high-school All -American Robert Parish from 
Shreveport Woodlawn. The number one recruit 
at Centenary this year, he would also be 
the number one recruit at any school in the 
country. Considered by many to be the best 
high school player in America last season, 
he averaged 30.7 points and 19.9 rebounds 
as he led Woodlawn to the state AAAA cham- 
pionship. It's generally conceded, however, 
that Parish will not be playing with most of 
the other freshman this year. With the new 
NCAA freshman-eligibility rule, he is tic- 
keted for varsity action. . 

The other freshmen will probably play 
junior varsity this season along with three 
or four sophomores. However, Little stress- 
es that "we'll be flexible. The door will 
be open for them to move around during the 
season" if their performance merits it. 

The freshman guard corps, which Wallace 
says is possibly stronger than last year's, 
includes Barry McLeod, Nate Bland, and Jim 
Bonds. 



The coaches are espeically high on the 
6' McLeod from Bridgeport, Conn. An ex- 
cellent playmaker as well as shooter, he 
is one of the top players to come out of 
Connecticut in some time. All-State in 
his class, McLeod led Notre Dame High School 
to a 22-3 record as he averaged 23 points a 
game. 

Bland comes to the Gents from Phillip 
Schuyler High School in Albany, N.Y., the 
same school which Gents Lonnie LeFevre, 
Skeeter Home, and Roadrunner Home attend- 
ed. At 6 '2" Bland averaged over 25 points 
a game for Schuyler, hitting mainly on 
long bombs from the outside. 

6 '3" Bonds hails from Jacksonville, 
where he led Jacksonville High to an 18-8 
record last year. A steady, dependable 
player, he is extremely fast and excels in 
playmaking. He averaged over 12 points a 
game last season. A three-year regular in 
both basketball and baseball in high school, 
he is also on the Gent baseball team. 

The freshman forwards include Welton 
Brookshire and Cal Smith. Brookshire, at 
6 '8" from Huntington, Texas, led his high 
school team to a 32-4 record as he averaged 
18 points and 17.6 rebounds. 6 '7" Smith 
from Normal, Illinois is the other Gent 
freshman forward. Dominating inside play, 
he led University High School to a 21-9 
record as he averaged 18.4 points and 13.5 
rebounds per game. He also shot at a 57% 
clip from the floor. 

These five freshmen will probably com- 
bine with three or four sophomores to form 
what should be an outstanding junior var- 
sity team, which could rival last year's 
freshmen in excitement. Last year's team 
made such a reputation that some of the area 
junior colleges do not want to play the Gent- 
lets this year. Still, they will be playing 
a strong schedule. At any rate, there should 
be much excitement in the Dome this season 
when the Gentlets seek to keep their Dome 
record (15-0 last year) clean. 



Playoffs Start Monday 

Sigs Hand Horns First Loss in 13-12 Thriller 



Sig I dropped the Horns from the 
unbeaten ranks Monday by a 13-12 score. 
The Sigs jumped to a 13-0 lead on 
touchdowns by Cooke and Hergenrader. 
The Horns rallied for touchdowns by 
Peyton and Treadaway, but their rally 
fell short. 

TKE II 19 Sig II 6 

TKE II defeated Sig II 19-6. 
Griffin and Dodson led the TKE defense 
while Holmes and Creamer stood out for 
the TKE offense. 
KA 14 TKE II O 

Geary and Gordon led KA to a 14-0 
victory over TKE II Wednesday. The 
KA's kept their playoff hopes alive 
by scoring twice in the first half and 
holding the TKE's scoreless. 

Faculty 32 KA 26 

Faculty held off a second half 
rallv to defeat KA, 32-26. Faculty 
had held a 32-7 half-time lead before 
KA rallied. 
Horns 35 Sig II 6 

The Horns had a diversified at- 
tack as they raced over Sig II 35-6 
last Thursday. Jerry Peyton scored 

e and Perry Peyton, Birkelbach, 
and Treadaway scored once each. Reedy 
scored the Sigs' lone touchdown. 

TKE I 46 Theta Chi O 

TKE I rolled over Theta Chi, 46-0, 
to keep the losers winless. The TKE's 
were led by Hendricks, Taylor, and 
Avery in the victory .

Dateline: Centenary 

It Was Just 
One of Those Days 

by Tom Marshall 



When the Green Bay Packers beat the 
Dallas Cowboys 16-13 in Wisconsin two weeks 
ago, it broke the Cowboys' National Foot- 
ball League -leading victory string at 12. 

But last Sunday, the Super Bowl cham- 
pions kept two other strings intact. By de- 
feating the Pittsburgh Steelers 17-13 in an 
NFL thriller at Texas Stadium, Dallas made 
sure that it has still never lost a contest 
in its beautiful new home at Irving, Tex. 
Furthermore, that win marked the seventh 
consecutive time that the Cowboys have de- 
feated the Steelers. 

But in the last minute and 51 seconds 
Sunday, those strings- -fragile; like all 
streaks in professional football --almost 
didn't stand the tension. Pittsburgh, led 
by third year quarterback Terry Bradshaw, 
tried desperately to pull an upset out of 
the fire. 

In that last ditch effort, the Steelers 
ran off IS plays- -better than one every 



seven seconds. Pittsburgh got the ball deep 
in its own territory and was faced with 
several crucial situations. But a 2 5 -yard 
Bradshaw aerial to wide receiver Dave Smith, 
a 27-yarder to Frank Lewis, and an 11 yard 
Bradshaw scramble on fourth down kept the 
Steelers --and their slim chance for vic- 
tory- -alive. In the last IS seconds Brad- 
shaw- -a former all-stater from Woodlawn 
of Shreveport-- threw four potential winning 
touchdown passes. All four failed. The last 
came with only one second on the scoreboard 
clock and had the 65,682 fans in the sta- 
dium and millions more glued to the tube 
holding their breath to see what would hap-' 
pen. What did happen was that Bradshaw 's 
pass was high and just slipped through the 
hands of Lewis in the Cowboy end zone. 

Dropped TD Pass 

That was just about the story of the 
game for Bradshaw and the Steelers. Mo- 
ments earlier, Bradshaw had delivered a 
perfect bomb to Lewis who was wide open 
behind the famed Cowboy defense, but Lewis 
couldn't hold on. And once during that ill- 
fated last drive a Bradshaw fumble looked 
like it might turn into a good break for 
the Steelers as Terry's teammate Franco 
Harris scooped up the ball and raced to the 
Dallas three yard line. But that run was 
nullified by a holding penalty.. .it was 
just one of those days . 

Some observers feel that the game 
signified somewhat of a coming of age for 
the Steelers. You gotta keep in mind that 
the Cowboys ARE the world champions and

they HAVE won 13 out of their last 14 
games. Top that off with the best (11-3) 
record in professional football last year, 
and that's saying something. 

After the game a stunned Bradshaw 
lamented, "I couldn't believe we lost... 
I was just sick." Asked about his own 
performance (12 of 39 for 166 yards) , 
Bradshaw commented, "Not very good. I 
threw some bad passes. They rushed me and 
I was trying to get the ball off. They play 
a fine defense, the best I've seen this 
year." 

- Terry's alma mater, Louisiana Tech, and 
the states ' only other undefeated collegiate 
team, LSU, both have important encounters 
this weekend. The Bengals and the Bulldogs 
(CONGLOMERATE , Sept. 29) both play Sat- 
urday night, with LSU (4-0 and eighth in 
the current national rankings) playing host 
to Auburn (also 4-0) in Tiger Stadium in 
Baton Rouge. Tech, (5-0 and second in the 
small college ratings) can wrap up at least 
a share of the Southland Conference title 
with a victory over Arkansas State at Little 
Rock. LSU and Auburn did not meet last year, 
but the Tech-Arkansas St. game was a 28-27 
thriller, with Tech coming out on top. 

LSU was not impressive in its 12=6 win 
over Rice in Houston last week, but the 
Tigers nevertheless won, and that's what 
counts. The score might have been higher, 
but LSU coughed up the ball on fumbles 
three times -- including once at the Owls' 
three yard line. On the plus side, the 
LSU secondary picked off five errant Rice 
passes and 'Valk on" placekicker Juan Roca 
toed a 53-yard field goal in the second 
quarter to break his own school record of 
52 yards that he set last week against 
Wisconsin. 



Texas- OU Clash 



Another big game Saturday is the an- 
nual Texas -Oklahoma contest, set for 
Saturday at 2:30 p.m. -(Channel 3) in 
Dallas. Both teams are always sky-high 
for this game and in recent years bowl 
berths and national championships have 
hinged on its outcome. The national 
title probably won't be decided there 
Saturday, but a win would go a long way 
in the rankings for both clubs, especial- 
ly Texas. Both the Longhoms and the 
Sooners enter the contest at 3-0, with 
Oklahoma a solid second in the current 
rankings , and Texas entrenched in the No . 
10 spot. Last year Oklahoma defeated 
Texas 48-27 on its way to a 10-1 season, 
while the defeat was one of only two for 
the Longhoms . Most oddsmakers have 
Oklahoma a solid three touchdown favorite, 
but don't count Texas out. 

Dome Gets New Floor, 
Weight Machine 

Two new features have been installed in 
the Gold Dome thLs week. First, a new flooi 
has been laid down in the gym because of 
defects in the original floor. The project 
was covered under the original guarantee 
and did not cost the school anything. 

Also, a circuit weight training machine 
has been installed downstairs. It will be 
utilized by Centenary athletes, but it is 
also available for any Centenary student to 
use. Interested students should call the 
Athletic Office for the hours the machine 
is open for general use. 

Girls to Arkansas 

The Centenary Girls Extramural Volleyball 
Team will be traveling to Arkadelphia, Arkan- 
sas the afternoon of October 13th. The team 
will play Henderson State College at 7:00 
p.m. The girls will spend the night and on 
October 14th at 10:30 a.m. play Ouachita 
Baptist. 

Girls that will be going are Yolanda 
Gonzaley, Gay Greer, Connie Johnson, Eileen 
Kleiser, Joan Medina, Jennifer Moffett, Liez 
Mohi, and Vicki Owen. Jan Lawrence will be 
traveling with the team as referee and their 
great coach is Miss Sharon Settlemire. The 
girls have been practicing diligently and 
are really looking good. 

Best of luck team! We know you will try 
your best to bring home two victories. 

Look for more extramural news in next 
week's CONGLOMERATE. We will keep you up to 
date on what is happening.

Treasures from Trash 

(AFS) Common city garbage is now regard- 
ed not just as waste but as a valuable re- 
source: "urban ore." In cities like Oak- 
land, Chicago, and Atlanta, this ore in 
the form of steel cans is 'mined" out of 
local trash dumps with magnetic devices. 

Over fifty mechanical sorters have now 
been developed and some of these work in 
curious ways. 

There's a giant pulper that works like 
a kitchen blender: it spins out the hea--J 
vier elements, and pours fiber pellets 
from the spout , ready to make into card- 
board or roofing materials . 

There's a "ballistic" system which 
'tiats" different kinds of trash from a 
rotating paddle wheel, hurling heavier, 
more dense metals a distance beyond the 
lighter, less compact paper and plastics. J 

One process grinds garbage and "digests" 
it through bacterial action. The resulting 
compost, unfortunately, is too high-priced 
to compete with chemical fertilizers. 

There's a "dry" process which spins the 
dried trash by centrifugal force, throwing 
the heavier items out, and forcing the 
lighter ones through a "refiner" which refl 
covers 70 to 80 per cent of the wood and i 
paper fiber. 

Another "dry" sorting system is the 
vertical air column used for grain cleaning! 
though it works best horizontally. Shred^ 
ded wastes are thrown into the air stream j 
and the components are carried various dijfll 
tances , depending upon their air resistanoB 

A pilot plant for processing mixed muni- 
cipal refuse has operated successfully fqjH 
year at Franklin, Ohio. It can process lSRj 
to S00 tons a day, and consists of a shred-* 
der, an air classifier, a magnetic separator, 
screening devices, and a flotation sep;n 
tor. The system is sponsored by th. 
al Center for Resource Recovery, a nan-pr 
fit corporation founded by labor and induS-j 
try. 

Still, we're recycling only one I 
per cent of the cans and bottles manufac- 
tured annually, and about one-fifth of our^ 
paper. Moreover, most cities will not in- 
stall the new and expensive recovery systfl 
until their garbage problem is critical. 
Meanwhile government and industry have ov 
50 different systems in operation. The 
method would separate aluminum, copper, 1* 
tin and zinc, as well as glass, from the 
ganic and combustible materials so they 
be recycled immediately rather than buried 
forever. There are now over one million 
of recoverable metals buried in sanitary 
landfills. Perhaps these will be the "milM 
of the future.

Kind Words From^Harlan 



Harlan Ellison, who has won 
more Hugo and Nebula Awards than 
any other science fiction writer, 
wrote the following concerning 
Centenary in the May 1972 Science 
Fiction Writers of America Forum : 

"Many of us have spoken at col- 
leges and universities. When we 
give these wonderful, sententious 
interviews with local newspapers , 
we quote statistics on how many- 
high schools, art centers, col- 
leges and centers of higher edu- 
cation have adopted sf classes, 
many for credit. But how many 
of us know exactly how they teach 
sf? Though we sell reprints of 
our best work to high school and 
college level text books (some 
with questions for class discus- 
sion that embarrass us) , most of 
us have no idea precisely how 
the many messages of sf are — con- 
veyed to a generation being 
raised on Silverberg and Lafferty 
and Vonnegut , even as we were 
raised on Hardy and Hemingway 
and 0. Henry. 

''On a recent lecture gig that 
took me to Centenary College in 
Shreveport, Louisiana, I found 
myself confronted by thirty young 
people so incredibly knowledge- 
able and perceptive about sf that 
I spent much of my time asking 
them questions . Who had instiga- 
ted the sf course they'd taken 
the previous years? . How success- 
ful had it been? Why had they 
been so hot to enroll in such an 
offbeat course? Who had taught 
the course and how well -equipped 
had the instructor been? What 
had they gotten out of the course? 
What books had they read and who 
were their favorite authors? 

"The answers were lively and 
enlightening, but the main thrust 
of their enthusiasm was for their 
instructor, a gentleman named 

Earle G. Labor, who had been 
pressed into service to teach the 



class but who had advised his stu- 
dents on the first day that he 
knew very little about sf beyond 
what he had read, and that spar- 
ingly. He was, of course, too 
modest. For Dr. Labor quite 
clearly operates in the grand 
tradition of the very finest 
teachers: he laid back and let 
the students run the class . By 
softly steering them toward dis- 
cussions of the themes and ideas 
of the stories, he let them dis- 
cover the riches in the works 

To Page Eight 

Black Like Her 

Lots of movies and books have 
dealt with the idea, but now it 
has happened. Through a medical 
accident , a seventeen-year old 
white girl has been turned black. 
Unfortunately for her, she lives 
in South Africa, where strict 
separation of the races (aparth- 
eid) is the law. 

Details of the incident were 
published recently in the San 
Francisco Examiner in an exclu- 
sive report from Johannesburg . 
The story points out that if the 
girl had been bom non-white, 
she would probably have develop- 
ed psychological defenses against 
racial discrimination she is now 
suffering for the first time. 
But presently she considers her- 
self an outcast in a system where 
the best of everything is reserved, 
for whites . 

Until a little more than a year 
ago, the girl's skin was typically 
Caucasian. But in December 1970 
surgeons removed two adrenal glands 
which were believed to be causing 
the girl's obesity. Though the 
surgery was regarded as success- 
ful, a few months later large dark 
areas began appearing on her neck. 
The spot gradually spread over 
her entire body. 

Legally, the girl is still 
white. But all she has to prove 



that she is European are her fea- 
tures and long hair. Her mother 
says it is particularly embaras- 
sing for the family because they 
all believe in white supremacy. 

"I feel the same as I did 
when I was white," the girl said, 
"but it is terribly humiliating 
to even go into the street now 
and know that I am no longer ac- 
cepted as white. I have not 
given up hope that I will be 
white again soon." 

According to the girl's mother, 
her daughter is now spurned by 
people who think she is colored. 
Unless a miracle happens, she said, 
her daughter will have no future 
in South Africa. "This is a tra- 
gic tiling to happen to anyone 
anywhere in the world," said the 
mother, "but in South Africa, it 
is heartbreakingly cruel." 

Just ask any black South 

African .

some other time. Whatever comes 
up, be in front of your radio sets 
Wednesday night at 7:30. 

Why? Well, because Wednesday 
night Oct. 25, Dick Hollwell's 
Party Line on KWKH-AM (1130) will 
feature two Centenary Gentlemen, 
Tom Musselman and Jeff Daiell. 

The two will discuss with 
Hollwell such questions as the 
meaning of "liberal" and "conser- 
vative," the philosophies motivating 
the various political doctrines , 
and the need or lack of need for 
social legislation. At eight, 
the phones will open for an hour 
of questions. 

It promises to be a lively 
and entertaining hour; so train 
your collie to burp the baby, 
just be there when it happens!

THE CONGLOMERATE 







According to reports , at least four 
local churches last Sunday heard their 
clergyman comment on a CONGLOMERATE 
column, "No Two Masters", by News Edi- 
tor Jeff Daiell. The column received 
mention in a Catholic, a Baptist, and 
a Methodist church, with the fourth 
unidentified. (More on that piece in 
the Weekly Mail.)

An update from Byron Wells, renowned for 
his expertise on nausea and canteloupes, on 
the stencli in Cline Dorm last week. Wells

Also, included will be a business meeting, 
committee reports and an address by the Presi- 
dent of the Association, Dr. Felicia Pryor, 
Professor of Psychology at Louisiana State 
University in Baton Rouge. 

Films Available 

The Centenary Library is offering a new 
service this fall to assist in the locating 
and borrowing of motion picture films and 
other audio- visual aids. A number of faculty 
members and campus groups have already used 
this service in arranging for films for class 
use and. club meetings. 

The Film Library at the Louisiana State 
Library in Baton Rouge provides the core col- 
lection that is available to Centenary. The 
subject and title arrangement of the L.S.L. 
film catalog and the WATS line and TWX con- 
nections to the Louisiana State Library make 
it easy to select films and reserve them for 
the date when they are needed. The service 
is entirely free. 

Several other state and corporation film 
libraries are also available to Centenarv, 
some for free, others for a modest rental 
charge. The Landers Film Reviews and var- 
ious indexes and guides are on the library 
reference shelves to assist in selecting 
these film materials. 

Students and faculty members should reserve 
their films for class or club use through 
Anna White at the Library. Arrangements for 
projectors and similar viewing equipment 
should be made with Steve Holt in the SUB.

Dr. Galloway Sits 
In Endowed Chair 

Centenary has received its first endowed 
chair through a trust fund of $240,000, and 
the board of trustees has named Dr. Louis 
Galloway first incumbent of the chair. 

The endowed chair of physics was made 
possible through donations from two long- 
time college supporters, the late Cornelius 
D. Keen and his wife, Florence Gillard-Keen. 

Dr. Louis A. Galloway III, chairman of 
the department of physics, has been desig- 
nated as the Keen Professor of Physics. 

The trust fund was established by Mrs. 
Keen in 1958, following the death of her 
husband, with a $10,000 gift. Mrs. Keen 
added $10,000 each year until her death on 
April S, bringing the total to $140,000. 
Another $100,000 was added to the fund through 
a bequest in her will, making a total of 
$240,000. 

College officials hope this endowment will 
be the first of several leading up to the 
sesquicentennial anniversary of the local 
college in two years.

Senate Business 

by Paul Giessen 

The Senate meeting of October 10th was 
postponed until October 11th at 7:00 p.m. 
Kick Clark brought the meeting to order, 
apologizing for the change in time and 
making note that absent senators would not 
be penalized. Tom Guerin, Mark Greve, Sandy 
Bogucki , Jeff Hendricks, and George Hancock 
were represented by a proxy. In addition, 
Rick welcomed the newly elected senators, 
Holly Hess, Mary Jane Peace, and Joey Lacoste. 

The business was brief. Block tickets 
for the Oklahoma-Texas game could not be 
secured. $275 from the Senate will go toward 
the proposed campus radio station. The com- 
mittee reworking Gentlemanly Speaking con- 
tinues its hard work . 

The President's Convocation is coming 
Thursday, November 16. The speaker will be 
Bishop Finis Crutchfield, the newly elected 
bishop in the United Methodist Louisiana 
Conference. Dean Miller described Bishop 
Crutchfield as a "dynamic speaker." 

Cindy Yeast announced that President Allen 
accepted the Student Life proposal on visita- 
tion. Finally, Dean Miller reported on the 
recent meeting of the Board of Trustees in 
which a financial statement of Centenary was 
given. It seems that things are bad, but 
they could be worse. Centenary has had to 
use endowment interest to keep running, but 
has not touched the endowment itself. 

The future goal of the Senate is planning 
a successful All -Campus Weekend in conjunc- 
tion with Jr.-Sr. Day, November 3rd and 4th. 
Projected estimates have risen so that nearly 
300 visitors are now expected for that week- 
end. Present plans include Anthony Burgess, 
author of A Clockwork Orange, on Friday night , 
and a new All -Campus Review Saturday night. 
For a more personal contact, students with 
private rooms are asked to take a guest that 
weekend. This type of big brother/big sister 
idea will help highschoolers see Centenary 
for what it is. Anyone interested in helping 
can contact a senator or Rick Clark (5550 or 
5265). 

The next Senate meeting will be held at 
10:40 a.m., Thursday, October 19th in the 
Senate Room of the SUB.

THE CONGLOMERATE 

High Schoolers Due 

-entenary will play host to junior and 
se.iior high school students from throughout 
Louisiana for a special weekend on campus 
Saturday and Sun.'ay , November 4 and 5 . 

All United Methodist students have been 
invited to the event through their local 
pastors and most of them will be transported 
to Shreveport on special buses and will be 
housed and fed on the Centenary campus with- 
out charge. 

Although the weekend has been designed 
for a good time, there will also be ample 
opportunity for the students to take a look 
at the serious side of college life and to 
talk with Centenary faculty members about 
their choice of a college. 

The visitors are expected to arrive on 
campus between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. 
where room assignments will be made and meal 
tickets distributed. 

The purpose of High School Day is to 
help prospective students know more about 
Centenary and at the same time to provide . 
pleasant 24 hour break in the high school 
students' routine.

will center around the theme "flake Education 
Top Priority." One of the major issues this 
year concerns the importance of improving 



Pag<- Three 

and upgrading the public school system. 

Caddo Parish Schools will be pari li i 
pating in this week long event. In add] 
tion to the traditional open houses and ex- 
hibits, various schools will lie hostm

WHAT HUMAN BEINGS SHOULD DO 

To the Editor: 

There are a number of things that self 
respecting students could do about a college 
president who has repeatedly demonstrated an 
arrogant contempt for their human rights and 
dignity. The angriest rhetoric seems hardly 
angry enough when you must deal with a man 
who chooses to ignore what must be his first 
responsibility; the maintenance of a decent- 
ly human environment where learning can take 
place and instead, wallow in cheap desperate 
youth-hating politics where, when a college 
is concerned, everyone loses. It seems bad 
enough to have a president who is invisible 
and largely inaccessable to students (remem- 
ber when he was first named president and 
all the talk about spending time in the SUB 
and around the campus?) but incredible to 
even imagine a small liberal arts college 
administrator in 1972 who would actively 
push for additional provincial, sexist and 
insulting limitations on the way human 
beings must live their lives if they are to 
live in an academic community. 

There are a number of things that self- 
respecting students who think of themselves 
as fully enfranchised human beings could do 
and say in a situation like this. One of 
them is not, however, treating Dr. John 
Allen to breakfast and photographs as a 
token of appreciation for his having been 
forced, after a large recent campus politic- 
al power play, to compromise his disgusting 
values . 

For students as people, 
Mario Savvy 

APATHY, THOU AREN'T NICE 

To the Editor: 

Editorials are supposed to be articles 
resulting from inspiration. Right? Well, 
I personally have been inspired. Let me 
say that what flows from my pen results 
not from an attitude of pessimism, but 
from a general observance of life on the 
Centenary College campus. 

Apathy is a strong word, but Webster 
and I both feel it is the best description 
of the general attitude of students on this 
campus. After living in 'Nary for 2 1/2 
years, I have seen the fever of "IDGAD" 
slowly infiltrating the student body like 
the Great Plague of Europe in the 1300 's. 
As ycfu read this, just sit back and think 
about the lack of participation in every 
aspect of Centenary's student life. For 
instance, did you notice the attendance 
of the intramural playoffs? I have seen 
the night when you had to fight to get to 
the sidelines for a better view. Another 
example is the number of people who go to 
the Sub during class breaks. 9:40 a.m. 
and 10:30 a.m. have been allotted in our 
rigorous schedule for nothing more than 
socialization. So why aren't the maiority 
of the student body socializing at these 
times? I have seen the day when you had 
to either fight over a chair or stand up 
around the tables. Even an aspect of 
academics tt.ids to lead one's point of view 
toward apathy. Non- compulsory class at- 
tendance supported by the majority to me 



is a- prime example. Now don't get me wrong! 
I enjoy missing a class now and then due to 
the rack monster, but why have the "IDGAD" 
attitude about classes? What are we here 
for anyway? 

I suggest we, the Student Body, change 
our apathetic attitude toward all phases of 
campus life. Unite together on all issues 
as we did concerning dorm visitation. Get 
involved and refrain from becoming a hermit 
in your dorm room. Socialize with the people 
you live with for four years, and always 
remember that, "you lose interest at the 
point of withdrawal."

Seriohumourosity by Jess Gilbert and Mike Marcell 

We raise the following questions concern- 
ing the institution of Who's Who at Centenary 
College: 

1) Manner of Selection 

A. The criteria -- junior or senior, 2.5 or 
better GPA, "distinctive contribution" -- 
are too broad and the selectors , too few . 
From the vast list on page 2 of last week's 
CONGLOMERATE , the four (4) faculty members 
of the Student Life Committee choose seven- 
teen (17) students to be honored. While not 
in the least questioning the ability of those 
professors to discriminate, we think that 
with such ambiguous criteria, the selectors 
must necessarily overlook some worthy students 
Is this the best method of selection? Sugges- 
tions please -- 

B. A disparity between the practical effect 
and the implied honor of Who's Who exists. 
The chief end result of membership in Who's 
Who seems to be a preferred spot on the job 
market. Yet this job advantage, perhaps the 
only important aspect of Who's Who, is neither 
mentioned in the criteria nor considered by 
the campus community in making nominations. 
Should not the most significant criterion reac 
as follows: Whom do you want to obtain the 
best job upon graduation from Centenary 
College? 

2) From what we understand, the institution 
of Who's Who is run by a corporation whose 
purpose is to make money. It seems incon- 
gruous to us that the profit motive is the 
basis for an 'honorary recognition society". 
Everyone accepted into Who's Who has an offer 
to buy a book with everyone's name who was 
accepted into Who's Who during that year; 
oddly enough, just such a book is sold by 

the corporation for about $20.00 (clothbound) . 
Is it right to make money by honoring people? 
(And please don't forget Who's Who in the 
South , Who's Who in Science , Who's Who in 
High Schools , Who's Who in College and Univ - 
ersity Administration , Who's Who in America , 
Who's Who oT~ American Women , Who's Who in 
the Methodist Church , Who's Who in Library 
Service, Who's Who in Commerce and Industry , 
Who's "Who in Theatre , Who's Who in American 
Art, Who's fflio in American Education , Who's 
Who Among Living Authors of Older Nations , 
etc.) 

Intellectually, we realize that our 
arguments may be both incomplete and shallow, 
not to mention fallacious. Emotionally (in 
resignation to T. S. Eliot's "dissociation 
of sensibilities" or, if you prefer, to the 

tesian dualistic structure of our culture), 
however, we hear a cry in the wilderness or, 
if you prefer, a shout in the street.

tali stic organization, the taxes and invest- ,-, 
ments of which indirectly support the corrupt 
Thieu regime in South Vietnam. Abolish Who's 
Who and help end the war. 

3) Who's Who provides a convenient listing 
of the "outstanding" college students of 
America. This book is accessible to anyone. 
Even the Communists. Just contemplate the 
implications . 

4) By providing a national collection of 
potentially good job risks, Who's Who encourages 
anomie. Job applicants of Who's Who stature 
have an economic and hierarchal advantage over , 
non-Who's Who pe6ple, thereby increasing ver- 
tical mobility and social distance between the 
classes. If this continues, an elite will 
suddenly emerge to rule the inferior. 

5) Finally, Who's Who employs (directly or 
indirectly) men and women who drive cars. 
Staff, book publishers, men whose toil at the 
binderies and paper factories, even the honor- 
ed students themselves -- all drive cars. 
More cars. More congested highways. More 
wrecks. More pollution. And probably more 
lung cancer. Death. 

Buckle your seatbelt and vote for McGovem. 

After this article was completed , we were 
informed that we had been selected for Who's 
Who. We appreciate the gesture, but cannot 
accept it. Our reasons have been stateid. 
In addition , we hope that our personal o- 
pinions are not construed as an attack on 
those individuals who have been chosen for 
Who's Who, for this is not the case.

Don't Throw Away 
Your Chance 
To Vote 




Most politicians would be happier if you 
didn't vote. Disappoint them! Don't let 
complex ABSENTEE voting procedures 
keep you from voting. Here's how to 

do it: 

If your voting address is not your school 
address, an absentee ballot form has to 
be requested from your home County 
Board of Elections or your County or 
Town Clerk. In order to vote for Presi- 
dent, your application must be received 
by October 31. The deadline is earlier for 
local elections in many states. 

5 STEPS 

1. Tear out the form below and fill it out. 

2. Have the form notarized. Ask school 
officials for help with notarization. 

3 Mail this form to your county or town 
Clerk or your County Board of Elections. 
4. When you receive the absentee ballot 



application and/or the ballot itself, fill 
them out immediately. Have them nota- 
rized. 

5. Mail them immediately to the office 
that sent them. 

IF YOU ARE REGISTERED TO VOTE AT 
YOUR SCHOOL ADDRESS, GO TO 
YOUR ASSIGNED POLLING PLACE ON 
NOVEMBER 7, AND VOTEI 

If you need assistance, contact your local 
McGovern, Nixon or other campaign 
headquarters or the Student National 
Education Association, 1201 16th St., 
N.W., Washington, D.C. 20036. Tel: 202-

If you are wondering exactly what it is 
that may classify you as a leftist or rightist, 
how tall George Washington was, or what signi- 
ficance the development of the television had - 
on the French Revolution, consult the History 
and Government department. They may not be 
able to tell you these things but they research, 
store, and release a wealth of information in 
related areas. 

The History and Government department has 
lost teachers and seen courses dropped from 
the catalogue or simply no longer taught in 
recent years, but gradually these troubles 
are being overcome. Now, with two additions 
to our faculty, a spirit of optimism is start- 
ing to prevail , which can be seen in that 
every teacher has a pet project that will be 
offered to the students within the next year. 
The Chairman of the department, Dr. Walter 
Lowrey, is at present working on the History 
of Centenary College. This means that his 
workload has been cut to two courses and the 
direction of independent studies . The history 
department has two students in the honors 
program and has three students doing indepen- 
dent studies. There are about forty history 
majors and twenty government majors and all 
of them have seen the hard times the depart- 
ment has been having; but now, with the new 
teachers and new courses , we can certainly 
look forward to brighter days for looking 
backwards . 

Our two new teachers are Dr. Edward Haas 
and Mr. Carney Laslie. Dr. Haas has just 
received his doctorate in Southern Urban 
history, and his dissertation is presently 
being reviewed for publication by L.S.U. 
He studied under Louis R. Harlan, a noted 
expert on Black History and the editor-in- 
chief of the Booker T. Washington Papers. 
Dr. Haas now teaches Black History, Ante- 
Bellum History and American History, and 
projects a course in Urban History next fall 
as his first addition to the Centenary cur- 
riculum. 

Mr. -Laslie recently received his Master's 
from American Univeristy in Washington, D.C, 
in the field of Far Eastern Studies . He has 
spent his life in the high civil service 
ranks of the State Department in the Far East. 
Presently teaching Modern Europe, he will 
give a course in the Modem Far East next 
semester. Anyone interested in this course 
should see Mr. Laslie or Dr. Walter Lowrey, 
because the course will be classified as 
independent study, even though it is a 
classroom, lecture-type class. 

Dr. Alton Hancock has an established re- 
putation at Centenary. (For the pros and 
cons of this reputation I refer you to members 
of his Renaissance and Reformation class 1 He 
is now planning three projects for the next 
year. Next summer he and Professor Johnson 
Watts are planning a History Study Travel 
course. One month of preparation in German 
conversation and German history will be 
followed by a month of travel in Germany. 
He also plans to present a nineteenth century 
Germany and a nineteenth century England 
course next year. All of these are still 
in planning stages, but he seems very opti- 
mistic regarding their future. 

Dr. Viva Rainey is also offering a travel 
study program at Interim, in connection with 
the English Interim trip. The two 'groups 
will go to England together and then separate 
with Dr. Rainey taking hers on a trip through' 
bpam and Portugal. The cost will be $600 
and all interested should contact her now ' 

Professor Wes Garvin, our full-time Govern- 
ment teacher, is offering a Hi story -Government 
interim on campus, dealing with the Radical 
Left The texts will consist of readers on 
New Left philosophy and probably one on Mod- 
em Black thought. Another project of Pro- 
fessor Garvin's since he came here has been 
to tree the government courses from being 
dominated by history. A major step in 
turning our Government into a Political Sci- 
ence department will be made next spring 
when the Government seminar will be split 
from the History Seminar. The course will 
be designed for helping students prepare 
themselves for graduate work at schools 
re political science is an important 
independent discipline.

THE CONGLOMERATE 



Page Seven 




by Cherry Payne 

What's the name of the D. J. who origi- 
nated the phrase "rock 'n' roll," on what 
television series did Sgt. Frank Smith ap- 
pear (Ben Alexander) and who recorded the 
hit record containing those memorable words, 
"Who put the bop in the bop sh-bop sh-bop, 
who put the ram in the ram a lam a ding 
dong?" Chances are if you know the answers 
to these and other questions you either re- 
member much of the fifties and your grammar 
junior high school days or you had elder 
siblings who directly identified with this 
period (Taylor Caffery excluded.) A few 
weeks ago the CONGLOfERATE ran an article 
on Grease , the musical spoof of the fifties.. 
With Grease has come an onslaught of nos- 
talgia that seems to taking over the coun- 
try. 

Examples: Sha Na Na: even Centenary 
College of Louisiana (1825) 
was delighted to jitterbug 
to the "oldies but goldies" 
played by this group. Com- 
posed of Columbia Univer- 
sity students, they gained 
notoriety in the 1967 Ivy 
League trivia championship. 

Flash Cadillac and the Con- 
tinental Kids: a group com- 
parable to Sha Na N'a that 
supposedly knows 800 songs 
of this era. 

Grease : a musical put -on of 
the fifties presently rever- 
berating on Broadway. 

Buffalo Bob and Howdy Doody: 
presently making rounds on 
the college speaking circuit 
as is Buster Crabbe (costing 
$1000 for presentation includ- 
ing films) . 



Bouncing Bertha's Banana Blan- 
ket: a national distributor 
specializing in the clothes 
of the fifties (i.e., baggy 
pants , saddle shoes , penny 
loafers and circle skirts) . 

The Uncola: 7 Up's adver- 
tisement centering upon the 
fifties motif. 

Short Hair: ugh! 

It seems inevitable that American is not 
embarking upon a new decade, but attempting 
to re- live the happy-go-lucky days before 
students knew or cared about wars, equality, 
protests and demonstrations and Woodstock. 

Gerald Clarke in Time magazine has noted 
this trend and has said of it, "We seem to 
be not so much entering the new decade as 
backing away from it full steam astern." To- 
ward the end of the sixties it was predicted 
that the American student would turn his in- 
terests away from righting social wrongs to 
a revival of an interest in the middle class 
standards of the fifties and early sixties. 
Many of us refused to believe it, but it 
looks as if we are going to be forced to 
admit that the psychologists were right. 

Many theories have been offered as to 
why this trend is occuring, but the most popu- 
lar seems to feel that the American public is 
trying to settle down after a decade of doubts 
questionings and fears. Americans are tired 
of being active pacifists and would prefer 
being passive activists. There is a search 
for the "good old days" and in the midst of 
this search we have forgotten the difficult- 
ies of the times mythologized. Clarke, once 
again points out "At a certain distance, 
vision fades and imagination takes over.... 
The eye of memory... is amused by the crew 
cuts and slang of 1953 but forgets the anti- 
Communist hysteria and the fear that follow- 
ed detonation of Russia's first hydrogen 
bomb." The "good old days" were by no means 
good old days, but we may look upon them with 
some sense of satisfaction, relief and even 
security because we did get through them 
without destroying ourselves, didn't we? 

The Greek system seems to be reviving 
itself, many of us have taken up beer drink- 



ing (an unheard of past time for any self- 
respecting radical of the sixties) and old 
radio shows are once again being aired (Who 
knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? 
THE SHADOW KNOWS!) . Could this be termed 
a regression? Thus far this seems to be 
the case, for while periods of nostalgia may 
have graced American history previously, a 
movement which is beginning its third year 
with no indication of slowing down on an 
establishment of a unique thought for the 
seventies does not seem to be indicative 
of a generation looking toward the future. 
We seem therefore, to be attempting to walk 
forward while looking behind to see where 
we've been. 

This is by no means an attack upon the 
new thought. Truly, it seems that the 
youth of today are beginning to look in up- 
on themselves rather than out at their 
society. Introspection, by no means, is 
something that should be shirked and all 
those who are still calling for active par- 
ticipation in demonstrations (John Froines 
and May Day, 1971) should recognize this in 
the youth. 

However, caution should be taken, for 
it seems that we are not establishing our- 
selves as an era, but rather a reflection 
of an era and, as many well realize, re- 
flections are not sufficient stuff upon 
which to base a thought. If we can take 
these nostalgic experiences, sit back, 
enjoy them and a short trip into our 
childhoods without attempting to live in 
that period, but continue to fire the 
problems of today as present-day problems 
the Vostalgia Movement offers no threat. 
Yet , as long as the movement serves as an 
escape which seems to characterize it thus 
far, we are only playing cruel jokes on 
ourselves and reality will hit us hard. 

Predicitions of what will take place on 
nearby college campuses and Centenary in 
particular I cannot offer at this point. 
Chances are, however, that put -on groups 
such as the Hot Wheels and Big Riggers who 
greased down before every official event 
(even the Big Riggers played football with 
Sha Na Na) will again return in full force. 
In any event, the next few years in America 
should offer much to the sociologists. 

Oops! I just heard they're showing 
re-runs of the Mouseketeers . . . . 



Gloria Steinem at NLU: 
Brassieres and Revolution 



"Friends and sisters, .. .no one I know 
ever bumed her bra." 

The place: Northeast Louisiana State 
University. 

The speaker: Ms. Gloria Steinem, ad- 
vocate of the Women's Liberation Movement. 

Thursday, October 5 saw the presentat- 
ion of a philosphy that may be considered 
"blasphemy" in some camps within this area 
of the country. Ms. Steinem and another 
speaker advocating the same position, Ms. 
Margaret Sloan, a black woman, joined on 
the speaker's stand to clarify many of the 
misconceptions of Women's Lib and to dis- 
cuss the goals and direction of the Move- 
ment at tlie present time. Yet, the one 
point emphasized throughout the talk is 
that Women's Lib is not a movement of re- 
form but revolution . 

Ms. Steinem began her discussion of 
the need for Women's Lib by taking a look 
at human history. It was pointed out that 
many historians fail to emphasize the fact 
that the first five thousand years of human 
history practiced what may be termed a 

which may be attributed to 
men, and only women, may 
perform the special . il act known as 
childbirth. Consequently, in ma ties

the black man and the woman: 

1) both have smaller brains 

2) both have a passive nature 

3) both are unable to govern them- 

selves 

4) both are unable to acquire special 

job skills 

5) botli are always late 

6) both are irresponsible 

7) both are more sexually skilled 

8) both are dictated by emotion 

She continued by stating that the condition- 
ing of individuals into these roles is not a 
natural move, but a political (social?) one. 
Society, Ms. Steinem maintains, would be un- 
able to function if "lower roles" were not 
assumed (i.e., those of the black man and the 
woman) . 

Ms. Steinem then moved into a discussion 
of the socialization of the woman and its 
effects upon her self attitudes. Women, she 
feels, have been led to believe that they 
are not "whole persons" or complete unless 
they have a male counterpart. Society has 
conditioned men into "junkies" in that only 
when a woman is with a man is she really a 
person. Consequently, the association with 
the opposite sex is getting a "shot of iden- 
tity". Women's Lib, therefore, disagrees 

- these social attitudes by advocating 
the mutual necv ed here, i.e 

men need women just as much as women need 

I 
•ner attacked tht 
Jorm hours on many colic 
minting out that many feel that "women 



are children" and they "don't think with 
their heads, but with their hips." 

In Margaret Sloane's address the dual 
depression of the black woman was examined. 
The black woman, Ms. Sloane maintains has 
not lost her identity, rather she has never 
realized one. It's very hard to love your- 
self when you're digging off a pancake box." 
She continued by pointing out that there is 
no room for racism in the movement because 
"a woman is a full human being." Further, 
she feels that Women's Lib is not for revers- 
ing male and female roles, rather to humanize 
both. Ms. Sloane then discussed the dilemma 
of tiie black woman in particular in that she 
is (the black woman) the subject of a dual 
depression. She pointed this out by relating 
her weekly trips into town with her mother as 
a child. Her mother wanted her to a) be quiet 
so as not to embarass her in front of the 
white folks and b) be still because that is 
the trait of a lady. Ms. Sloane continued by 
attacking present legislation in most states 
concerning reproductive freedom (abortion, 
et. al . ) by stating that most of it is decided 
by "old white mouldy men who can't get it up." 
fb. Sloane then called for all people to re 
fuse to play their male-female roles and re- 
late to each other on an individual basis 
only. She closed her talk by quotir

they chose to include in their syllabus 
(a syllabus, incidentally, made up by 
the students themselves) . 

"During my visit to Centenary, I had 
occasion to sit in on a rap session 
between Dr. Labor and his students, as 
well as an offshoot class of the sf 
course, a session in myth and archetype. 
I found his questions probing and directly 
to the heart of what we write. There were 
none of the Joe Explainer questions like, 
'Where do you get your ideas?' or 'Has the 
atom bomb influenced sf writing? 1 

"So impressed was I by the work the class 
had done, and the themes the students had 
done on many of us , that I asked Dr . Labor 
and students David Lawrence, Ellen tlisch, 
Cherry Payne and others if I might steal 
away copies of the seminar prospectus , mid- 
term and final exams. They most graciously 
consented to my request, and I offer them 
here for your pleasure and to provide a 
more grass-roots understanding for those of 
us working in the genre, as to just what 
we are saying to college students in our 
work. 

"If others of you out there can obtain 
similar classroom documents, I think their 
inclusion here in the Forum will offer an 
invaluable feedback. After all, if they're 
being raised on us and our work, the least 
we can do is accept the responsibility and 
perceive what it is in our dreams that so 
fire them." 

Monday, Oct. 16, the Shreveport Alpha XI 
Delta Alumnae Chapter served a covered dish 
supper at the home of Mrs . Mays . Centenary 
professor Eddie Vetter spoke to the group 
about the reasons for Open Ear and how the 
organization operates . 



The Chi O's have been using their suit- 
cases lately for more than dust -catching. 
Football, fish, and fun were on this past 
weekend's itineraries in such places as 
Dallas, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and 
Fayetteville. 

The local tennis balls and pros have a 
new Chi secretary. The Tennis Association 
is now in formation with Mary Oakland as one 
of the two officers in command. 

Match $1.25 with spaghetti and your hungry 
Sunday evening stomachs can become content . 
The Chi Omegas are sponsoring a spaghetti 
dinner November 5th in the Smith Auditorium 
from 6-8 p.m. If you don't like spaghetti, 
you can choose between a raffle or a cake 
sale. We're determined to trade money for 
satisfaction. 



Through Monday, Oct. 23, the Zeta chapter 
will be selling chocolate -pecan candy and 
Just-a-Note stationery for $1 each. See any 
Zeta active or pledge about purchasing either 
or both items. 

The pledges and the actives have started 
their service projects. Both are helping at 
the Wilkinson Terrace Neighborhood Center 
for tutoring of disadvantaged children. 

There will be a pledge-active slumber party 
this Friday night. So when you see many 
weary Zetas dragging themselves from the ZTA 
lodge Saturday morning, you'll know why. 

ITEM: The ZTA pledge class made $210 at 
their Slave Sale, thanks to all of their 
contributors! 

The TKE chapter was pleased to have had a 
visit from f rater, now Private, Vic Dinger 
this weekend and is proud of the showing made 
by their TKE I football team in the intramural 
finals. 

This Saturday night there will be a TKE 
levee party. Saturday, Oct. 28, the TKE's 
will have a car wash so be sure to get your 
ticket for a clean car from any TKE. 

J. David Dent has been named a regional 
officer of Tau Kappa Epsilon International. 



The international pre-medical honorary 
society Alpha Epsilon Delta initiated eight 
new members on Wednesday, Sept. 27. The new 
members are: Rick Bentley, Doug Cook, Ronnie 
Gardner, Mark Greve , Charles Leach, David 
Walker, John Waterfallen, and Cherral 
Westerman. 




Amid polite yawns and droll gray faces in 
a half-full Hurley auditorium, the tired Reid 
Buckley, brother to conservative superstars , 
unloaded his notebook full of right wing 
apologies Monday night. 

His talk, which might be described as a 
debate with an imaginary but equally tired 
labor Democrat who learned a different lesson 
from the 1930 's, centered around the minimum 
wage, urban renewal , poverty , the war and 
social security . He provided the listeners 
with a number of shocking poverty program 
theft statistics and called social security 
a "boondoggle ." Generally, his lecture 
expressed a bubbly faith in the ability of 
the private sector to attack social ills and 
sounded like "Everystudent's" businessman 
father holding forth in the den during a 
commercial . 

Mr. Buckley, it must be noted, did warn 
the gathering in the beginning that his 
case for conservatism would, by necessity , 
be dull. It was. — Opinion by Ray Teasley 

Reid Buckley: 

(1) Is intelligent and articulate. 

(2) Successively defended the conservative 
position during the question and ans- 
wer period. 

After dining with him, we were impressed 
with his knowledge of literature. Further- 
more, we enjoyed his personal stories about 
the Buckley family. Besides, he treated us 
to a bottle of wine. And he doesn't like 
Nixon either. Vote for McGovern.

Shifting Sentiment 
in the Middle East 

NOT REAL PEACE, BUT THE ABSENCE OF WAR 

by Paul Jacobs /AFS 

Imagine a flock of sheep, followed by 
three camels, crossing the busiest inter- 
section of a large U.S. city at 5 p.m., 
and you have a little sense of Cairo- - 
one of the noisiest and most crowded cities 
I 've ever seen. 

Multiply by a thousand the excavations 
for new buildings that mark downtown San 
Francisco or Philadelphia, and you'll have 
some sense of how Tel Aviv and Jerusalem 
look today. 

These images are but a hint of the cul- 
tural gaps that separate countries like 
Egypt and Syria from Israel, and all three 
of them from the United States. They make 
nearly impossible what is already a dif- 
ficult task: communicating to Americans the 
tenuous and shifting realities of life in 
the Middle East. 

Even now, many American Jews take the 
slightest criticism of Israel as a sure 
sign of anti-Semitism, while many American 
Arabs view any disapproval of Arab policy as 
proof of a Zionist plot. 

Ouite apart from these obstacles to 
understanding, however, I'm handicapped by 
my own feelings. Part of me -- and an im- 
portant part, too -- is in Israel, where 
some of my oldest and best friends live. 

I go back there again, attracted and 
repelled, loving it and hating it, at 
ease there in certain ways I am never 
comfortable here, and equally uncom- 
fortable there in ways I nei'er experience 
here. 

In the past few years, however, I have 



also made new friends in the Arab world. 
I've come to understand something of their 
extraordinary culture and I have developed 
deep feelings of sympathy for the Pale- 
stinian Arabs who once lived in what is now 
Israel. 

Bear all this in mind then as I try to 
make a political judgement on the Middle 
East today -- to compress the reactions of 
a month's trip into a few words: 

The whole area, it seems, is moving 
to the right. The Arab nations are 
shifting in that direction and the 
influence of Islam is growing among the 
Arab ueoples. Israel, too, is shifting 
towards the right as the viewpoints 
held by Israeli expansionists and 
hawks become more and more acceptable 
to those in the center of Israeli life. 

I do not think any immediate danger of 
full-scale war exists in the area. No 
Arab Nation or combination of Arab na- 
ions is capable of successfully con- 
ducting a war against Israel and neither 
are the Palestinians. And, at the mom- 
ent, Israel has more than enough Arabs 
to deal with, for today Israel is in 
fact a bi -national state- -except that 
the million Arabs who live within it 
and the borders of the occupied ter- 
rettories are and will remain second- 
class citizens. Some Israeli leaders 
recognize the implications this large 
Arab population holds for the future 
of a Jewish state; others, unfortunately, 
do not. Abba Eban has complained that 
when he raised the question of Israel's 
future demography if the state had more 
than a million Arabs in it, one of his 
fellow cabinet members jeered at him 
with "Demography, shemography." 

Arab leaders are still reluctant to 
criticize publicly what they believe to 
be incorrect policies and actions of 
other Arabs , thus maintaining a formid- 
able barrier to real peace. 

Meanwhile, the voices of dissent in 
Israel have become more isolated from 
the mass of the population and more 
susceptible to suppression with the as- 
sent of the majority. The conflict 
grows between orthodox religious forces 
and those who are demanding a relax- 
ation of the tight hold the religious 
community has on such matters as mar- 
riage and divorce. The fight has been 
postponed temporarily, but, in the 
words of Deputy Prime Minister Yigal 
Allon, it is a "time bomb" which will 
explode in the future. 

Still, despite the pessimism I feel 
compelled to express, I also feel a 
little sense of hope for the future. 
No Arab with whom I talked believes 
Israel will give up any of the occupied 
territories; most Israelis feel that 
way, too. But I did hear a few in- 
fluential Israelis speak out in favor 
returning the territories , and some of 
them are now intent upon entering po- 
litical life and changing the country's 
fossilized leadership. And, for the 
first time, I heard Palestinian Arabs 
use the word "Israeli" instead of just 
"Zionist." 

For the first time, too, I heard Ameri- 
can Jews express the view that perhaps the 
American Jewish community has been wrong 
in its traditionally automatic endorse- 
ment of every Israeli policy. If nothing 
else has happened to cause this shift, the 
openly expressed hope of so many Israelis 
that Nixon will be re-elected has created 
some disquiet among American Jews . 

I found Israel more prosperous than ever 
before and the Arab countries only a little 
better off than they have been. But Israel's 
prosperity is based on its expanding defense 
economy and its inflationary construction 
industry -- and on having available a 
large-scale, cheap Arab labor force. Neither 
Israeli prosperity nor Arab depression can 
continue forever, for both contain within 
themselves the seeds of their own internal 
destruction. 

Two years ago, when I came back from the 
Middle East, I felt no real peace was pos- 
sible in the immediate future. Now, two 
years later, I am even more convinced that 
what exists in the Middle East is not real 
peace, but only the absence of war. The real 
test of a future peace will be what policies 
are adopted during the Hiatus.

SRLF-DETERMINATION IN A TEST-TUBE 



An awesome event is about to be consum- 
mated, human conception in a test tube. 

Indeed, Robert G. Edwards of Cambridge 
University's Physiology Department has al- 
ready done it. That is, he's taken an egg 
from a woman's egg sac by inserting a needle- 
like laparoscope through her navel, united 
the egg with a sperm cell in a glass dish, 
then nurtured the resulting embryo through 
more than 100 divisions. ' 

Now, however, in a hospital in Manchester, 
England, Edwnrd is going to carry the concep- ' 
tion process to completion by re'implanting 
the embryo, again with the laparoscope, 
through the navel into the woman's uterus. 
Nine months later, if all goes well, she will 
give birth to the world's first human baby 
conceived in vitro . 

The mother will be one of fifty volun- 
teers, all of them doctors, doctors' wives, 
or nurses. These would -be -mothers are sterile 
because of blockages in their oviducts, which 
make it impossible for the ovum (egg cell) to 
make contact with sperm. 

In spite of these mothers ' wishes , even 
longings, for the experience of giving birth, 
some first rate scientists have publich 
called for the stoppage of Edwards' experi- 
ments. Harvard's James ("Doible Helix") 
Watson calls in vitro conception "an abomin- 
able act." Max Perut:, an English Nobel 
laureate biochemist, says that the "whole 
nation should decide whether or not these ex- 
periments should continue." These scientists 
are worried that the child will be bom with 
deformities --remember thalidomide? --and that 
this create a revulsion against all science. 
They're more worried that the experiment, if 
successful, will bring the "Brave New World" 
of genetic engineering upon us before we're 
read)' to cope with it . 

Aldous Huxley, in Brave New World preiict- 
ed that we will use genetic engineering to 
create armies of identical humans who would 
live in a genetically determined hierarchy. 
In such a world there is no such thing as 
individual freedom --although there is ef- 
ficiency, sufficiencv, and even happiness. 
The complexity af problems that genetic en- 
gineering will bring can be glimpsed in 
Perut: 's own statement: the whole nation 
should decide the behavior of an individual , 
in order to prevent a Brave New World, a 
world in which the behavior of the individual 
is decided ahead of time. 

The cmx of the issue is, who is to decide 
a person's behavior' 1 We would like people to 
be self -determining, but at the same time we'd 
like them to co-operate with each other. The 
conflict between these two wishes is the basis 
of most of our problems. Because this con- 
flict would be minimized if we were all bio- 
logically identical, mans thinkers believe 



that the very existence of methods to bring 
about biological identity is likely to lead 
quite quickly to their being used to this 
end. We obiect to uniformity because we do 
not believe in the genuineness of the self- 
determination of identical entities. 

But there are other tilings we could do 
with genetic engineering. We could use it 
to create greater self-determination in a 
world where more meaningful cooperation is 
possible. It may be enlightening to list 
some of the things that genetic engineering 
is likely to be able to accomplish in the 
not-too-distant future: 

Amniocentisis : prenatal sampling of the 
amniotic fluid around the fetus has already 
begun. By this method some genetic defects 
can be detected and therapeutic abortion re- 
commended. Many parents regard this as a 
gain in self-determination- -for themselves 
and in the long run for society. 

Gene therapy : modifying genes, adding 
genes, subtracting genes, either before 
birth or after. A gene has already been suc- 
cessfully added to human cells in tissue cul- 
ture, so it is clear that this affects not 
just future generations but the present one 
as well. And this forces us to ask questions 
such as, What genes do we want? To what 
extent should individuals be allowed to 
choose what genes they add or subtract? If 
the past is any guide, there will be r a ds 
fashions, fraternities, and rivalries in 
"gene apparel." Of course this is quite 
futuristic- -but we may well live to see it 
because early gene therapy may halt aging 
and extend our lifespans. 

Cloning : making a replica of an in- 
dividual from one of its cells. This may seem 
far out, but it's already been done with frogs 
It's the obvious way to make Huxley's army 
of identical entities. But it may be pos- 
sible to use a modified form of cloning to 
grow, in tissue culture, just an organ neces- 
sary for transplant. It could be grown quick- 
ly by the use of growth hormones, or it may 
be possible to store organs in some way In 
nay case there would be no rejection problem, 
because one's clone organ would be genetical- 
ly identical to one's own organs. 

Self determination is surely enhanced if 
one has some choice not only in one's life 
style but in one's body--or even brain- - 
style. Cooperation that is necessary for 
adopting a particular body (or brain) style 
is certainly a deeper cooperation than what 
is now possible. 

As for the in vitro conception issue, I 
think it is similar to the abortion issue in 
which the burning question is, "Does a woman 
have the right to determine what is done with 
ner body? When gene therapv becomes available 
the question will be, "Does a person have the ' 
right to determine what is done with his or 
her body?" We had better, at least, talk 
about it now. 




The Bag We re In 




Packaging is the only thing that's in- 
creasing more rapidly than population. 

In 1958 the national per capita consump- 
tion of packaging materials was 404 pounds. 
Tins rose to 525 pounds in 1966 and will 
increase according to Department of Health, 
Education and Welfare estimates. 

The increase from 1958-1976 is equiva- 
lent to one NFL All -Pro Defensive Tackle per 
man woman and child in this country. And 
that's just the wrapping! It has nothing 
to do with all the truly useless crap which 
is produced, consumed and cast off to the 
rubbish heap as well. 

Several factors have led to this increase. 
The desire for convenience on the part of the 
consumer and the ever advancing technology are 
two reasons, together with the growing trend 
towards self -servicing merchandising, manu- 
facturers have come to rely on packaging alone 
to differentiate their product from their 
competitor's. No longer is there a sales 
clerk to point the difference --real or imagined- 
between The Product and Brand X. If a manu- 
facturer wants to continue to innundate the 
nation with his proi'uct he has to rely on the 
package alone- -bigger, brighter and shinier- - 
to get his message across. To a great extent, 
packaging has become the most important part 
of the sales pitch- -on the retail level. 

The media- -of course- -is the message. 
The bright aluminum ran sells the beer and the 
set of screw drivers in the blister pack sends 
dad home from the hardware store with the 
entire set instead of a single tool, and 
after he hangs them on his peg board, he still 
has the package to dispose of. 

In a great many instances packaging means 
profit. Not only does the product earn the 
manufacturer a profit, but in many cases the 
package itself earns more than the product it 
protects. In addition, since tilings are 
generally styled to become outdated in a short 
period of time, they automatically gear vou 
up for another sale. 

From a technological viewpoint, there's 
a lot that can be done with biodegradeable 
materials. In Sweden, for example, a new, 
self-destructing beer bottle called "Rigel- 
lo" is now on the market. And a Swedish 
distributor called Tetra-Pak is working on an 
ideal self-destructive package in collabo- 
ration with the Institute for Polymer Tech- 
nology in Stockholm. Their process will 
accelerate the decomposition reate of polv- 
ehtelene plastics, and they are working to 
develop a package which will decompose more 
rapidly when discarded without losing its 
strenght while still in ise. 

Here in America, technologists are hjrk- 
mp, toward the development of a packing con- 
tainer which can be dissolved after using. 
It consists of a water-soluble siroerstruc- 
ture covered with a thin, impervious coating 
which resists corrosion. After the container 
is empty, the coating can be cracked open, 
and the water-soluble superstructure dis- 
solved. 

But technology is not going to rescue us 
from the crisis of excessive solid wastes-- 
of which packaging is a distinct part. For 
while technological innovation is increasing 
raw materials keep disappearing. Luckily 
the idea that you can be owned by your DOS- 
sessions is becoming more and more obvious 
to people, and some of us have started to 
move away from this "curse of possessions " 
The most visible ray of hope in this decade 
is that people in ever increasing numbers 
are demanding that we assess the quality of 
our lives rather than the quanifty--and 
gear our economic and social forms to if 
if that means the GNP has to slow down and 
decrease to make life more livable they're 
willing to let the chins fall where they may. 

Sometimes it seems like we are fast 
being buried in society's garbage and we 
want out--t hat's the bag we're in.

know what's happening where you live-- 
and what's being done about it. I'll

THE CONGLOMERATE 



October 20, 1972 




TRUCKIN' ON WITH TRUCKERS FAVORITES 

Commander Cody may be on his way to 
stardom- -in demand all over the college 
and concert circuit, worshipped in Eur- 
ope and heard round the world- -but his 
music has yet to lose any of its small 
club, sawdust -and -beer quality. 

If it did, of course, there wouldn't 
be much left. Commander Cody is the 
band that took country music out of 
the hands of the Laurel Canyon dilet- 
tantes , giving young folks their first 
glimpse of the real balls and innate 
honesty in that kind of music- -and even 
did the same for those Country § Western 
fans lucky enough to give them a try. 
But today's C§W is as far removed from its 
roots as rock is, and a lot of people don't 
realize how raw it used to be. 

Asleep At The Wheel (recently signed 
to United Artists) is a new outfit which 
is following in Cody's footsteps and 
seems destined to revolutionize country 
music, but Cody is still the only group 
in the world playing rock § roll the way 
it sounded back in 1955 when young Southern 
country musicians were experimenting with 
the beginnings of white rock ^ roll. For 
that reason I wish they had more songs like 
"Boppin' Tongiht" and "Git It," instead of 
less effective Little Richard oldies, but 
a whole album of rockabilly will undoubted- 
ly be forthcoming and anyway, Hot Licks , 
Cold Steel S Truckers Favorites (Paramount 
6031) is already a theme album of sorts . 

If the title doesn't give it away, the 
portrait of a giant semi truck on the cover 
and the lovely cutouts on the back- -like one 
of those old king truckdriving albums --is 
sure tipoff . Truck songs always had more 
vitality than the rest of country music, 
and this is largely a collection of Cody's 
trucking favorites . 

Real truck music is usually sung by 
guys with a deep-throated Paul Bunyan 
kind of voice, but when Billy C. steps 
to the mike and belts out 'Truck Drivin' 
v lan" in his Gene Vincent tones, the result 
is a fantastic and impossible combination 
of styles. It's a blend which reaches the 
ultimate in 'Truck Stop Rock," which could 
not have existed before Cody but sounds 
right out of some old Memphis jukebox. 

There are three more trucking songs 
on this album, including the classic 
"Mama Hated Diesels." It's one of those 
slow, mom f vil, cryin'-in-your-beer numbers, 
telling the story of a family where both 
the father, and later the fatherless son, 
gave their lives to the big rigs, leaving 
the poor brave lady in the middle to crack 
from the pressure. If this one gets heard 
in Nashville, it'll turn a few heads. 

Besides the diesel ditties and two 
Little Richard numbers, Truckers Favorites 
is notable for a lovely country song call- 
ed "Kentucky Hills of Tennessee," a moody 
rocker titled "Watch my .38," and a really 
fine version of the old Cajun tune, "Diggy 
Liggy Lo." To top it all, Cody hiraself 
makes an appearance at the mike to sing 
"It Should've Been Me." This early 'SO's 
R6B standard has never sounded better, and 
it could be the hit to follow "Hot Rod Lin- 



coln." 

Since I first saw them, I've been trying 
to burb my impulse to over- analyze the signi- 
ficance of Cody's sensational popularity. 
To me, they're like a glimpse into the reality 
of that 1955 Tennessee roadhouse my mind has 
conjured up over the years whenever I heard 
one of those fine old Southern rock records. 
But the kids who buy Cody's records most 
likely never heard of Carl Perkins, and the 
only explanation is that the old rock § roll 
style really does have the intrinsic irre- 
sistability I've always believed it to pos- 
sess. It's nice to be vindicated, and it's 
even better to have this kind of music around 
again. Long live rock § roll! 





Willie Wonka And 
The Chocolate Factory 

by Pam and Michael Rosenthal 

One of the most pathetic deficiencies 
of the American film industry is its near 

incapacity to turn out good children's 
films. This is largely unnoticed by adults 
(especially those without kids) due to what 
we can only call "ageism." 

It is particularly striking when you 
consider that kids relate immediately to 
magic and fantasy, both of which are vir- 
tually built into the film medium. (Sit- 
ting in a vast dark room watching brilliant 
shadows against a wall had something magical 
about it to begin with.) However, movies 
intended for the children's market show 
even less inclination to venture into fan- 
tasy than the average product . 

The reason in probably economic. Child- 
ren under seven do not go to the movies by 
themselves, and cannot afford to buy tickets. 
If thev do, it is usually because some adult 
has decided to take them. Since the pro- 
ducer is selling tickets to the adult, he 
is less interested in what the kids like 
than he is in what the adult thinks the 
kid should like and finally, in what the 
adult wants the kid to see. 

Children's fantasies deal as much in 
terror and mystery as they do in beauty 
and wonder. Adults generally do not like 
to see their own dread spread in front of 
them, and would not consider it appro- 
priate for their kids. As a result, child- 
ren's films are vacuous, saccharine, and 
mindless. 

Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory 
is one ot the rare exceptions, a lilm that 
appeals to a kid's imagination rather than 
to a supposed idea of his or her intelli- 
gence . 

Though sprinkled with sentimental mo- 
ments, the plot is drawn with a child's 
fine sense of hyperbole. The chocolate 
factory produces the most delicious candy 
you can imagine, Wonda bars, in which five 
golden tickets are enclosed, entitling five 
lucky children to visit the factory. 

Our hero, honest, upright Charlie Bucket, 
is so poor that his family lives on cabbage 
water, and .while other kids and their parents 
are buying up crates of candy, he can only 
afford three Wonka bars. However, although 
we know that Charlie will be among the lucky 
five, we and Charlie sweat out fully half 
the film waiting for the ticket. The pacing 
takes on the measured suspense of a folk 
tale, .complete with magic numbers (three 
Wonka bars, like three bears or three bro- 
thers) --and it works. 

The bad kids, meanwhile, get eliminated 
one by one, through a series of picturesque 
run-ins with the candy -making apparatus: a 
gluttonous boy gets stuck in a conduit of 
liquid chocolate, while the gum-chewer gob- 
bles some unperfected chewing gum and turns 
into a giant blueberry. We are assured, 
rather weakly, that these children will be 
restored to their original conditions and 
even morally improved by their trials, but 
this is a film devoted more to calamitous 
punishment than to moral suasion. It's in the 
tradition of the Grimm Brothers' stories and 
has some of the artistry. 

a presides over the spec 
' 
th., the good and honest can pass un- 
ed as a gla:-- .in 

ilder, he is assisted by 



a troupe of dwarves, the Oompa Loompas, who 
resemble the Munchkins from the Wizard of Oz . 
Dwarves in kids films have rarely been as 
cute or cozy as intended, and the strength 
of the Oompa Loompas is that they exploit 
the menace inherent in their roles and are 
an inspired part of the candy factory's 
understated, goose-bumpy terror. 

Clearly, there is much in the film 
that is objectionable. The morality is 
inflexibly old-line--the bad, bratty kids 
are horribly punished, the poor, innocent, 
and honest always win. 

On the other hand, there is something 
liberating about the film's sensitivity to 
where kids' heads are at. In one scene, 
after Charlie drinks some magic soda pop, he 
levitates toward a rotary fan at the roof of 
the factory, and escapes by belching himself 
back to the ground. The beauty of the scene 
lies in its recognition of children's fascin- 
ation with physical quirks , including those 
that generally meet with adult disapproval. 

Although Willie Wonka is no longer being 
played regularly, it does pop up now and . 
again on the midnight -shows -for-freaks cir- 
cuit that includes Reefer Madness , El Topo , 
and Night of the Living Dead . Needless to 
say, it works beautifully as a mind-blower, 
and we think that groups planning film series 
should consider adding it to their schedules. 
Kids and their parents are a significant 
part of even campus populations, and are 
shafted and ignored enough already. 

Beans Instead of Meat 
In School Cafeterias 

The government can't seem to do anything 
about high meat prices, but at least they're 
considering an alternative to meat for feder- 
ally-subsidized food programs which may actu- 
ally be more nutritious. 

The Department of Agriculture recently 
announced a proposal to let school cafeterias 
freely substitute soybeans for meat without 
disqualifying themselves for federal reim- 
bursement. It will be interesting to see if 
today's kids, who reportedly eat more junk 
foods than ever before, will accept the un- 
familiar soybean dishes. 

Many people began eating soy products in- 
stead of meat back in the early forties when 
World War II caused high prices and food 
shortages. People found literally hundreds 
of ways to prepare soybeans. 

More recently, in 1961, the Department of 
Agriculture published a report on the protein 
value of soybeans which found that soy pro- 
ducts are the most nutritious and concentrated 
food known to man. They reported that two 
pounds of soy flour equals five pounds of 
beneless meat, six dozen eggs, or four pounds 
of cheese. 

It's cheaper, too--it costs about a 
quarter for one hundred grams of soy protein, 
compared to about a dollar for one hundred 
grams of beef protein. In addition, soybeans 
furnish nutrients not found in meat , such as 
a high content of vitamin C, and they are low 
in saturated fat and cholesterol. 

Whatever the schools decide to do with 
soybeans, they certainly won't be getting them 
as a free commodity. Soybeans have never been 
a surplus crop. In fact, they are one of 
the nation's "big three" billion-dollar export 
products, and huge quantities of soy meal also 
go into stock feeds and pet foods . 

So if it turns out that farmers must com- 
pete with ranchers for use of marginal lands 
which are suitable for both beef and soybeans, 
then the price of the alternative to meat will 
also begin to rise.

A Golden 
Opportunity 

by Tom Marshall 



The Centenary Girls' Extramural Volleyball 
Team was defeated this past weekend by 
Henderson State College and Ouachita Baptist 



Ends Three-Year Sig Reign 

Horns Claim Flag Crown 



Spotting Sig I a quick touchdown, the 
Horns rallied for a 13-6 victory Wednesday 
night to cop the championship of the Cen- 
tenary intramural flag football league. 
The victory revenged the Horns ' only 
regular season defeat and also, ended the 
Sigs' 3-year championship reign. 

The Sips took the opening kickoff and 
marched down the field in easy fashion 
with a Frank Parks' 5-yard run scoring the 
touchdown. The extra point attempt failed 
as Don Birkelbach knocked down a Parks' 
pass. 

The game see -sawed back and forth 
through most of the first half. Then 
with a minute and a half left in the 
half , on a fourth and goal play, Emmett 
Treadaway lofted a 25 -yard scoring pass 
to Birkelbach. Treadaway then rifled 
a bullet to Birkelbach for the all- 
important extra point. 

The Sigs threatened in the closing 
minutes of the half, but an interception 
by Dan Sparrow killed the rally. The 
half ended with the Horns on the Sig 
2 -yard line. 

The Horns struck again early in the 
second half on a 5-yard pass from Tread- 
away to Mike Paulson. An unsuccessful 
extra point attempt set the score at 
13-6, the final score. 

However, the game was full of action 
until the end. The Sigs threatened on 
clutch fourth down passes from Parks to 
Bill Dunlap, but the Horn defense of 



Perry Peyton, Tracy Knauss, Glen Ketchum, 
Randy West, Paulson, Sparrow, and Bir- 
kelbach bent but didn't crack. 

These two teams had reached the 
finals by winning semifinal games Mon- 
day night. The Horns downed TKE I, 12-7, 
in a tight game, and the Sigs routed the' 
Faculty, 19-0. 

In Wednesday's third place game, the 
TKE's smashed the Faculty, 20-0. 

The playoffs brought an end to a 
highly-successful and highly-competitive 
football season. 

Tennis Talk 

Twenty- five Centenary College students 
met October 16, at 5:00 p.m. in the Cen- 
tenary Room to form a tennis association. 
The purpose of this organization is to 
promote tennis on campus. Clinics and 
the possibility of new tennis courts were 
discussed. Also, arrangements were made 
with local merchants to secure discounts 
on clothing and tennis equipment. 

The following people were elected to 
serve as officers for the association- 
President: Calvin Head, Vice President 
(in charge of publicity): Linda Trott, 
Secretary and Treasurer: Mary Oakland. 
Richard Millar heads a committee to in- 
vestigate and plan Saturday morning 
clincs . 

The next meeting will be held on 
October 23, at 5:00 p.m. in the Centenary 
Room. All are welcome. Please attend!

Well, the new uniforms didn't come in on 
time, and two sections of cushion seats that 
have already been sold on a season basis 
don't even exist yet, and the resurfacing 
job on the floor just did get finished soon 
enough . 

But for some reason, Larry Little and 
Riley Wallace didn't seem worried; in fact, 
most of the time they were smiling, and I 
think I even heard a few laughs. 

That was the scene at Monday afternoon's 
Press Day as the public got it's first look 
at the 1972-1973 edition of the Centenary 
Gent lemen . 

While Little was deftly fielding a 
barrage of probing questions fired at him 
by members of the local media, his troops 
were playfully cavorting about the confines 
of the Gold Dome, with a large group of 
photographers shooting a seemingly endless 
footage of film. 

Like any good team, the Gents started 
with basics. Layups, reverse layups. short 
jumpers. Great. Now for some good stuff, 
or I guess I should say "stuffs." At one 
end of the court, a few of the "big men," 
Messrs. Parish, Fuller, Murphy, Johnson) 
Davis and others, are really enjoying 
themselves. A stuff here. One-handed, 
two-handed. Slam dunk. Fuller obliges a 
photog who has clamored up behind the glass 
backboard as the Juco transfer displays a 
few driving, over-the-head, backward stuff 
shots . 




ROOSEVELT FULLER 

. . .bring back the dunk. 

At midcourt, there's a lot of fancy ball 
handling going on. Behind -the -back passes 
between the leg dribbles, sharp cuts, hard' 
driving passes. Who are these guys anyway? 
That brand new maroon and white "C" at center- 
court will never be the same. 

But after about an hour and a half, all 
the questions are answered- -at least for 
the time being- -and the photographers have 
packed up their equipment. Little shakes 
the hand of the last reporter, and the 
Gold Dome echoes of bouncing basketballs. 

"Five minutes," the coach hollers, and 
the 23 prospects hustle off to the locker 
room to get into their work clothes. There's 
a lot of work between now and the November 
28 season opener. 

A lot of work, but spirit is high. And 
the talent is there. One preseason basket- 
ball magazine opines that Centenary is on 
the very brink of basketball power, much 
like Oral Roberts and Jacksonville of rec- 
ent years. And at least one writer thinks 
that Centenary will be a household worri 
by the end of the season. 

There's no doubt that the possibility

OUR TRASH OVERFLOWETH 



To The Editor: 

Students are constantly confronted with 
signs stating "Help keep campus clean." 
Why, then, is virtually every trash can 
on campus never emptied? Somebody isn't 
doing their job. 

Cherry Payne 

IN SHOCK 

To the Editor:

want his Who's Who thing, I do. Also, if 
any YONCOPIN Beauties decide to forgo her 
(their?) honor, I'll gladly accept --I» didn't

And I'm still in shock that I didn't get

SITTING BACK 

Taylor § Gang: 

I've just finished reading today's edition 
fo the CONGLOMERATE. For a variety of reasons, 
vol 67, #8, strikes me as the best looking, 
informative, and comprehensive school paper 
I've read in a long time. 

Not being an active staff member anymore, 
I can sit back and look at the CONGLOMERATE 
somewhat objectively. My basis for compari- 
son is a knowledge of past volumes and of 
other school papers that fall into my hands 
either through SGA offices or other means. 
Maybe it's just because I heartly agree 
with some of the opinions expressed (notably 
Mario Savvy's), but a full reading of yall's 
efforts always proves rewarding. 

Keep up the good work and best of luck 
with your advertising policy hassles. 

Thanks

AflERNfflmE FEATURES SERVICE 




DAIELLRECOGNIZES GOOD 



To the Editor: 

Jeff Daiell 's letter (CONGLOMERATE , Octo- 
ber 13, 1972) , denying the existence of or 
attacking God, raises the oldest question of 
man, the question of evil. It is raised in 
the creation story of the Old Testament, in 
man's oldest story, the story of Job, and most 
explicitly in one of Christianity's central 
events , the crucifixion of Jesus . 

The creation story answers the question by 
saying that it is man himself who is respon- 
sible for evil. In the story of Job, his 
wife attempts to "Solve the problem by denying 
God, "Curse God and die." The Christian 
faith proclaims that evil (death) has been 
and can be overcome in life. We, limited, 
finite beings , can find no rational answer to 
the problem of evil; all mmm% , even a de- 
nial of God, are not rational. The Chris- 
tian answer is an answer of faith. 

The relevant problem of evil for a Chris- 
tian is not to explain the source of evil. 
We may play around with it, but find no 
meaningful answer. The relevant question is 
how will we respond to evil. Jesus was able 
to say "Father" in the hour of his death. 
And Christians, in faith, try to call even 
what we understand (perhaps wrongly) as evil , 
"Father." We try to say to life, in all of 
its forms, this is good. Most importantly, 
we try to act as if every instance of so- 
called evil is an opportunity to do good. 
We try to respond to evils, hunger, nakedness, 
injustice, loneliness, suffering, by over- 
coming them with good. This may appear ab- 
surd—it takes some courage to so live--but 
we live this way in hope, not despair. Al- 
though the source of evil is a mystery, we 
do not deny the good (God) , but live in the 
hope that finally the evil, even death, will 
be overcome by our response of faithful ac- 
tion. 

It is good that a college community like 
ours be confronted by a letter such as Mr. 
Daiell has written. It reminds us that 
there is no rational answer and that our only 
option to despair is the answer of faith. 
It confronts us with a position that is real 
in our world, and that we had rather forget 
exists. Mr. Daiell 's letter does, in fact, 
reveal that he is able to make a distinction 
between good and evil, and leads me to believe 
that our difference is probably one of seman- 
tics , for it is the very good he recognizes 
as a possibility that I, in faith, call God.

McGOVERN'S TAX PROPOSALS 

To the Editor: 

Steve Weissman's article, Wealth Is 
Safe With McGovern", conveniently over- 
looks one major point in the Senator's 
program. That is McGovern 's proposal to 
tax all inherited wealth above $500,000 
at the a rate of 771. Indeed, the South 
Dakota Savior's original plan had been to 
tax such inheritances by 1001 (Huey Long is 
alive and well in the Middle West!) until 
some workingclass reactionaries protested 
that it was "unAmerican" to tax anyone or 
anything 1001. 

Well, I understand the Senator plans to 
explain his proposals in a series of "fire- 
side chats". It should be interesting, on 
Election Day, to see if George McGovern can 
duplicate Samson's feat of winning a battle 
using the jawbone of an ass. 

Sincerely , 
Juanito Derecha 

The Election: 

Where Are 
We Now? 

by W. P. Garvin 

With less than two weeks remaining before 
the American people perform their quadrien- 
nial act of supreme sovereignty, it might be 
well to stop momentarily and ask ourselves 
just what is going on. 

The most noticeable factor of this election 
is that it seems to be boring people stiff. 
While it is a truism that a Presidential 
campaign never heats up until after the World 
Series, this year's version seems to be leav- 
ing most voters flat. What little enthusiasm 
there is is limited to the hard core supporters 
of the various candidates. It remains to be 
seen whether or not the projected visit to 
Shreveport of the GOP's super-campaigner -- 
Julie Nixon Eisenhower -- today will perk 
things up locally, but frankly I think it will 
take more than this . 

The cause of this apathy is harder to define. 
Perhaps it results from the apparent futility 
of it all. After all, everyone knows that 
Senator McGovern doesn't stand a snowball's 
chance in wherever to be elected. Just as 
everyone knew that he had no chance to be 
nominated. The President, on the other hand, 
is not taking things so lightly. He is, if 
nothing else, a student of politics, and he 
knows all too well what is the result of lax- 
ity. Prime Minister Harold Wilson two years 
ago, buttressed by a multitude of favorable 
polls and outlooks, told the British people 
to "have a good election," and apparently 
most of his supporters did just that, without 
bothering to vote. The result was one of 
the more surprising upsets in recent British 
history, the election of the Conservatives 
under Edward Heath. 

Or, perhaps the apathy results from a 
general "a curse on both your houses" attitude 
among the voters. It is no secret that Pres- 
ident Nixon is not the most personally popu- 
lar President that we have ever had. In 1968, 
he was elected with just over 43* of the pop- 
ular vote against a severely divided Democra- 
tic opposition. The Democratic challenger, 
on the other hand, is seen by many as a "radi- 
cal" who has stolen control of the party and, 
likewise, has been unable to stir up much 
popular enthusiasm. Charisma seems to be 
lacking anywhere on either ticket. 

Which leaves the voter with a feeling of 
'Vhy bother." This feeling may well dissipate 
before November 7, since both parties are be- 
ginning to picture this election as the most 
important of the century, but it will be sur- 
prising if the turnout exceeds the 1968 fie- 
ure of 621. s 

About the campaigns themselves, there is 
not much to be added. In any presidential 
election, the incumbent enjoys an automatic 
advantage in terms of familiarity. In other 
fields this may breed contempt, but in office 
holders, especially presidents, it breeds 
safety. After all, we know what the man in 
office is going to do. (Some observers credit 
factor as being the primary reason for 
Truman's surprise victory over Tom 
Dewey in 1948 -- the feeling that at the last 
ands of people who had intended 
>. to opt for Dewey pulled Truman's name

because he was "good, old, safe, dependable 
Harry.") Any replacement is a question mark. 
In this century alone, only two incumbent 
presidents have been denied re-election if 
they ran -- W. H. Taft and Herbert Hoover -- 
and both of them had serious problems . Thus 
we start with the premise that Mr. Nixon will 
win, unless something serious happens. 

This of course puts Senator McGovern in a 
bind. He must create a serious issue on which 
to run, but he must do it without seeming to 
be the very radical that many people fear. 
Thus far he has depended on corruption (the 
alleged Republican corruption, that is), but 
has not gotten much mileage out of it. 

Which is not to say that Senator McGovern 
does not have issues . The above-cited corrup- 
tion (i.e., Watergate, wheat sale to Russia, 
etc.), the state of the economy (in the last 
two years the cost of living has increased 
7 1/2 4, which, while not runaway inflation, 
is hardly creeping either, and with no signi- 
facant decline in the unemployment rate) , 
the war ( a note in Tuesday night's paper 
that U.S. bombers flew "only" 120 missions 
over the North is hardly encouraging ), Presi- 
dential appointments -- ranging from the 
original choice of his vice-president to his, 
successful and unsuccessful, nominees for the 
Supreme Court. 

But, of course, the picture is not all one- 
sided, and Mr. Nixon is waging what is perhaps 
his best campaign -- the image of the states- 
man-President, far above the battle, leaving 
the actual hard campaigning to others. This 
is the picture that seems to be appealing to 
most Americans, and the President is playing 
it well. He is also, wisely, leaving the 
bulk of the dirty work not to Vice-President 
Agnew, as in 1968, but rather to neighbor 
John Connally, recognizing that his over- 
whelming margin -- which he wants badly -- 
will have to come from Democrats if it comes. 
And who better to point out the errors of 
the Democratic nominee than another (at 
least nominal) Democrat? 

At this point then, most of the signs 
point to a Nixon reelection. The only ques- 
tion in most people's minds is by what margin. 
Yet recent Gallup polls show that while a 
good one-third of the Democrats currently are 
considering defecting to the President, much 
of this support is "soft" -- it can be swayed 
away. Time alone will tell whether Mr. McGov- 
ern can recapture enough of this Democratic 
vote to tum the campaign into a real horse- 
race. And time is what the Senator has little 
of right now. 

The most interesting race in Louisiana 
currently is the three - (or four-) cornered 
Senatorial contest. While it too has not really 
gotten people excited, there are some interest- 
ing elements to it which could surprise some 
people . 

Item: the Republican candidate, Mr. Tole- 
dano, seems to be writing off North Louisiana 
as far as any actual serious campaigning is 
concerned. Whether this means he expects Mr. 
Johnston t-o win handily, or he expects himself 
to ride in on a strong Nixon vote in the 
North is unknown. 

Item: the best financed campaign thus far, 
surprisingly, seems to be that of the Indepen- 
dent, former Governor McKeithen. But then he 
never did seem to have much trouble with 
money. Indeed, unconfirmed reports are that 
the Johnston campaign is in serious financial 
trouble, which could hurt him. 

Item: reports out of the South are that 
number one there is the aforementioned Indepen- 
dent. Apparently his pro-rural appeal is hav- 
ing seme effect in the less urbanized areas. 

Item: Mr. Johnston has suggested that Mr. 
Toledano withdraw, so that the so-called "good 
government" vote not be split between those 
two men. To my knowledge Mr. Johnston has 
not suggested that he himself withdraw for the 
same reason. 

Item: the question of where will the blacks 
and liberals go is hardly moot. Mr. Johnston's 
fervent attempts to disassociate himself with 
the McGovern candidacy have apparently convinced 
these groups, if nobody else, that he really 
is not a loyal Democrat. Thus, for whom will 
the McGovern voters go in the Senatorial ra. 

Speculation: Mr. Hall Lyons, the .American- 
Independent candidate, will probably do as 
well as will his Presidential candidate. 
Schmitz: i.e., maybe St of the vote. 

Speculation: if there is a heavy turnout, 
and the bulk of this turnout is pro-Nixon, 
Toledano could very easily slip in on his 
coattails . This would probably take a Nixon 
victory approaching 701 of the vote, vrfiich 
while unliicly is not out of the question. 

Speculation: if turnout is moderate to light 



Page Five 



and if Mr. McGovern runs stronger than expected 
(i.e., 40%+ of the vote), the next Senator from 
this state may well be John McKeithen. This 
is not to say that McKeithen is a McGovernite -- 
far from it. But it will take a strong anti- 
Nixon vote to keep Toledano out, and let 
McKeithen slip in. 

Conclusion: if your bookie is putting on 
the pressure, reasonable odds right now say 
McKeithen: 2-1, Toledano: 2 1/2 -1 (5-2 for 
the purists), Johnston: 4-1 at best, Lyons 
100-1.

Giving Birds the Business 

(AFS) If you can quietly buy up a lot 
of parrots , macaws , cockatoos and finches , 
you might be able to develop a nice black 
market business . Already the price of 
mynahs has soared from about $20 last 
spring to around $250 today. 

The Wall Street Journal reports that 
USDA men are lurking around bird farms , 
gassing any and all exotic birds suspect- 
ed to be carriers of Asiatic Newcastle 
Disease. 

The task force, now scouring California 
for tropical birds to gas, appraises the 
birds and compensates the owners. But 
they're really giving them the business - 
or rather taking it away- -because the 
$300,000,000 bird biz is a threat to the 
5 billion dollar poultry. The egg-men 
shitt the blame to the powerful lobbying 
effort of the meat people. Egg-layers 
could he vaccinated but the vaccine would 
make meat chickens temporarily ill and un- 
marketable. 

There'll be a bird-ban of course, until 
procedures for safe entry are developed. 
Meanwhile, business is down twenty per cent 
at New York's Fish and Cheeps pet shop, 
and Hartz Mountain is going to seed with 
an expected loss of $4,000,000 in sales of 
pet products next year.

October 14 was an unsual day at the play- 
house. This was not only the closing date 
for Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead , 
it was also the opening date for Take Tle~To 
The Treasure , a children's show that is 
guaranteed to delight those who are still 
young in heart. The final campus show will 
be presented October 28 at 1:00 pm and 3:00 
pm at the R.E. Smith Building. Centenary 
students who present their I.D.'s are 
granted free admission. All others who 
wish to attend need only pay 75 cents . 

Take Me To The Treasure has begun tour- 
ing the area in conjunction with the Green 
Gold Library System. Members of the cast 
and crew will be performing in those small 
outlying towns that are said to be "cultural- 
ly deprived." 

As the touring is getting underway, so are 
the rehearsals for The Imaginary- Inv'al id , 
a classic farce by rioliere? Dan Chistiaens 
will take the part of Monsieur Argan, the 
imaginary invalid. His wife, Beline, will 
be played by Ann Gremillion and the parts 
of Angelica and Louise will be played by 
Patty Jacobs and Ginger Heaton respectively. 
Jodi Glorioso will be seen as Toinette. 

Bob Robinson will play the part of Mon- 
sieur Bonnefoy, and Doug Wilson will play 
Cleante. Dr. Diaforus and Dr. Thomas 
Diaforus will be portrayed by Clay C. Brown 
and Hamp Sinmons respectively. 

The rest of the cast includes Joe Allain, 
Bob Hickman, and Art Hebert . Wendy Buchwald 
and Joyce Sellers are the assistant directors, 
working under director Robert R. Buseick. The 
Imaginary Invalid will be seen November 14, 
li>, 10, 17, 5 18 at 8:00 pm. 

A huge crowd of eager workers at the Satur- 
day morning tech calls will be appreciated. 
There is work for anyone who wishes to come. 

Stay of Execution 
For Unique Lake 

(AFS) Fyramid Lake on Paiute Indian 
land northeast of Reno, Nevada has won a tem- 
porary reprieve from destruction. 

The stunningly beautiful 30 -mile- long 
desert basin is now drying up at the rate 
of one foot per year, and has already reced- 
ed 80 feet below its normal level because of 
ther diversion of irrigation waters upstream 
by farmers. 

Acting in response to a suit about this 
filed by the Fyramid Lake Paiute Indian tribe 
against the Interior Department, Secretary of 
the Interior Rogers C. B. Morton ordered a 
one-year reduction in water diverted from 
the lake's source- -the Truckee River- -to other 
areas. His order is effective Nov enter 1.

.VELIKOVSKY'S SCIENTIFIC 'HERESIES' 

In the weeks before the first "great 
step for Mankind" on the moon, Immanuel 
Velikovsky sent two urgent messages to 
ri.H. Hess, chairman of the Space Science 
Board of the National Academy of Science. 
Velikovsky said that, by his calculations, 
the moon had as recently as 27 centuries 
ago been heated in the presence of a 
strong magnetic field and that the rocks 
on the moon would have a remnant magne- 
tism. He urged that "the orientation of 
the rocks before removal should be noticed 
and marked... You said to me that this sim- 
ple task of marking the orientation is not 
included in the program; if it is to be 
omitted, you will have a question instead 
of an answer." t 

Hess was one of the few scientists who 
took Velikovsky seriously but he was unable 
to persuade NASA to have the rocks photo- 
graphed before removal from the moon's sur- 
face. No one at NASA expected the rocks 
to be magnetized. However, after Armstrong 
and Aldrin brought the moon rocks back to 
earth, lunar scientists reported, "Natural 
remnant magnetization has been found in the 
crystalline rocks and breccias. . .the result 
of a process not yet understood." And NASA 
announced that the major task of Apollo 12 
would be "to register the orientation of 
the rocks before their removal by photo- 
graphing them while on the ground." 

Of course, Velikovsky was not mentioned 
in these releases . Velikovsky is a scien- 
tific heretic. He has proposed that Venus 
was expelled from Jupiter about 35 centuries 
ago, leaving its point of departure as the 
"great red spot" on Jupiter. Venus, which 
then had a highly elliptical orbit, passed 
close to earth 34 centuries ago, causing 
much havoc, recorded in ancient histories 
and myths all over the earth. Venus grad- 
ually settled into its present orbit, but 
not before knocking Mars out of its previous 
orbit 27 centuries ago, so that Mars had a 
close approach to earth, causing another 
great upheaval, also recorded by men all 
over the globe. These cataclysms brought 
about profound changes in earth's rate of 
movement around the sun and the moon's move- 
ment around earth, and therefore the year-- 
lengths and month- -lengths have been altered 
This too is documented by human records. 

When this hypothesis was published in 
book form in 1950 as Worlds in Collision , 
scientists raised a great outcry, and 
threatened to boycott MacMillan, the pub- 
lisher of the book, so that MacMillan drop- 
ped Velikovsky even while his book was a 
bestseller (Doubleday, having no textbooks 
to boycott, picked him up.) Nor would the 
scientists let Velikobsky publish rebuttals 
to their arguments in journals. Velikovsky 
had committed three scientific sins: 

Me had published for a popular audi- 
ence (even though he had extensive footnotes 
so that each assertion could be checked) : 

2. He had not stuck to his speciality, 
medicine and psychoanalysis, for he had used 
historical arguments to bolster a physical 
theory ; 

3. Most damning of all, his picture of 
the solar system was just scientifically 
impossible. 

"Can rve democracy when education 
in true scientific principles. . .can be nul- 
lified by the promulgation of such lies- -yes 
lies, as are contained in wholesale lots in 
'for Ids in Collision ?" wrote Dean McLaughlin, 
Professor of Astronomy, University of Michi- 
gan, in a letter to the president of Mac- 
Millan in 1950. 

s major "lie" was that the solar 
system was not a solely gravitational clock, 
'onian mechanics and even Einstein's Gen- 
ii Relativity makes a giant clock of the 

tern where the only important force is 
gravi likovsky made the revolutionary 
proposal that electro-magnetic forces play an 
important part in the behavior or the solar 
system. On the scale of living things on 
earth, electromagnetic forces are supremely 



important- -they account for just about every- 
thing that goes on in living things. But on 
the scale of the solar system, as one scient- 
ist pointed out, the sun would have to be 
charged with 10,000,000,000,000,000,000 volts 
in order for Velikovsky 's scheme to work- -and 
the scientist added that the sun has a charge 
of, at most 1800 volts. However, that was in 
1952. Eight years later the sun was found to 
have a charge of 10,000,000,000,000,000,000 
volts, and to be at the center of a huge mag- 
netic field which embraces the entire solar 
system. 

But this was only the beginning. Velikovsky 
had made many other predictions, especially a- 
about Venus . At a time when Venus was believ- 
ed to be earthlike in temperature, with a 
largely nitrogen atmosphere, Velikovsky said 
that Venus should be giving off more heat than 
it gets from the sun; should have a largely 
carbon dioxide and hydrocarbon atmosphere; 
and most startling of all, it might well be 
rotating backwards because of its brushes with 
other planets. Mariner II in 1962 reported 
back to earth that Venus had a temperature 
of 800 degrees F, that the atmosphere was 
largely carbon dioxide, and also contained 
carbohydrates and hydrocarbons , and surprise - 
of -surprise, Venus rotates backwards! Besides, 
it has been discovered that Venus has a reso- 
nant lock on Earth- -every time Venus passes 
between the Sun and Earth, Venus turns the 
same face toward us. Astronomers are very 
hard put to explain all this on the usual 
model of the solar system. 

These finds have begun the vindication of 
Velikovsky, at least among the younger scient- 
ists, and he has been invited to speak to 
scientific audiences at universities. Without 
rancour, he lets the "facts" (once heresies) 
speak for themselves . Besides the Venus 
data, there is Jupiter as a hot, and glowing, 
planet instead of encased in miles of ice. 
Velikovsky had even predicted Jupiter's power- 
ful magnetic field and its radio waves . Mars 
has a cracked and moon-like face and has lost 
a lot of angular motion- -all of which leads 
scientists to say things like, "The means by 
which Mars could have decelerated presents a 
problem," and, "A change of rotation may pro- 
vide the stresses which produced (the faults) " 
Just as Velikovsky predicted.' 

All of these data and many more appear in a 
special issue of Pensee , a monthly magazine 
of the Student Academic Freedom Forum, Box 414, 
Portland, Oregon, very appropiately titled: 
Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered. H ow Much of 
Yesterdays Heresy Is Today's Science?

by Brooks Johnston 

If you can tear yourselves away from the 
bright lights and the costumes and the open- 
ing night excitement, you can see the unreal- 
ity behind the real. By "unreality," I mean 
the dull, drab, and ridiculous ' everday old 
things that happen inside our own Majorie 
Lyons Playhouse. 

The newest arrival to the Playhouse Family 
is Miss Barbara Acker. She is available any 
day of the week to explain and illustrate 
her now famous "forward stretch." Contrary 
to popular belief, her technique has nothing 
to do with football strategy. Instead, it's 
a wonderful method for turning your head 
into a super-sound system. She employs this 
technique in aiding students with difficult 
words such as 'wa-ter-me-lon" and "wood". 
Of course the two professors remaining 
from previous years_, Mr. Robert Buseick and 
Kip Holloway have not faded into the back- 
ground. They each have nuances of their own. 
Mr. Buseick has managed to contract a hairy 
. growth on his chin while Kip is beaming over 
the former Lee Ellen Pappas who is now Mrs . 
Holloway. 

Having just recently recovered from a 
successful season opener "Rosencrantz § 
Guildenstern are Dead," the three faculty 
members are preparing for an educational 
season of "Prosperous Theatre" (or is it the 
other way around?) . But on to other things . 
It is appropriate here not to recognize those 
who hold the leads in the Majorie Lyons Play- 
house Productions, but to celebrate the all 
too quickly forgotten "Little Guy." It is 
in this spirit that I include "Extra's -Union 
Intoxication Or How to be a Bozo in Three 
Easy Cues." 

"Why not," he said to himself, "it might 
do me some good." And laying a finger aside 
of his nose he recalled the oft-quoted slogan 
of the Marjorie Lyons Playhouse and Gameshow: 
"There are no small parts, only small actors.' 

There are those who might criticize this 
actor's Everyman for his lack of "bad-loser" 
spirit and for his inability to refuse a 
minor role but I stand behind him 10004. 
He's a regular fellow in my opinion, and it 
is in his memory that I hereby establish and 
found the "Sarah Bernhardt Award for Little 
People." 

Nominees for this soon to be coveted award 
must fulfill the following three requirements: 

1) The creation of a well -developed character 
I use "well-developed" to mean that the char- 
acter must have a separate and distinct per- 
sonality from that of the actor since playing 
oneself onstage is not artistic achievement. 
This requirement automatically eliminates 
prunes, beggars , and watercoolers . 

2) The careful use of gestures. An actor 
should use gestures to "physicalize" the 
thought with which he is occupied at any 
given moment . This does not include waving 
at Aunt Sally, blowing one's nose (unless 
called for in the script), nor spitting into 
the audience without due provocation. 

3) The application of the correct ad lib to 
the correct situation. Under this most dif- 
ficult of categories one might consider 
shouting 'Heads" when one has forgotten one's 
lines. '?lazeltov-ers" are disqualified be- 
cause of lack of originality. (Note: when 
searching for Romeo § Co. "Peas and Carrots" 
would be an effective variation on 'Mazeltov") 

After careful consideration of all possi- 
ble candidates, I am proud to announce the 
runners -up for the Sarah Bernhardt Award for 
Little People (familiarly known as the S. 
"Oh!" B.s). The 4th runner-up is Mattie Horn- 
swatch who never has appeared in anything nor 
ever will (tough-luck Mattie). Third runner- 
up is Lurch LaRue who captivated his audiences 
as the fourth guard from the left of the big 
Oak Tree. The second runner-up is Dora Nerd 
who told fans backstage only last week "Ah 
dun dunnit, Eben, Ah dun dunnit." Miss Nerd 
is best remembered for her touching perfor- 
mance as a fire-pole in 'You Can't (or per- 
haps you can) Take It With You." First run- 
ner up honors go to Sammy Starr who tripped

his way through the Denmark Penitentiary 
as the Melancholy Danish. (Perhaps we mean 
Staged Danish.) Audiences will long remem- - 
ber Sammy's style, grace, and form when he 
pulled out all the stops and jumped headlong 
through a flurry of swashing swords and into 
the lap of the fat lady on the first row. 

The winner of this (surely by now) coveted 
award for Little People goes to the fat lady 
on the first row for gallantry under seige and 
during the craziest of second acts. (Right-on 
. . . Target) . 

Seriously friends, we must realize that 
without our extras (familiarly known as 
"supernumeraries" or "camel -drivers") the 
show couldn't go on. So to all you little 
extras out there on the stage of life, "Places" 
and "For heaven's sake, watch out for the 
Fat Lady," 

So while it's still fresh on my mind -- 
witout sounding like Ronny Recruiter -- audi- 
tions are open to any Centenary student. And 
now that there's even appropriate recognition 
for the fourth guard from the left by the big 
Oak Tree , you can respond en masse the next 
time you see the sign "Aunt Mariorie Wants You." 



Dr. Carlton Speaks 
About West Africa 

by Cherry Payne 

"In Monrovia, Liberia, where I lived for 
the last two years, 150 inches a year was 
considered to be a light rainfall. It has 
been known to get up to 200 inches a year." 
Dr. Virginia Carlton, Chairman of the Math 
Department thus related some of her West 
African experiences in chapel yesterday 
morning. Dr. Carlton was assigned as a 
Fulbright Professor of Mathematics at the 
University of Liberia from 1970-1972. She 
returned to the States with an abundance of 
West African artifacts (many of which have 
been on display in the Library Foyer this 
past week) and experiences. 

Dr. Carlton placed the main emphasis of 
her talk on West Africa, as she noted that 
there are close to 50 nations on the con- 
tinent, hundreds of languages ( at least 
28 dialects are spoken in Liberia alone) and 
in size the continent covers 12 million square 
miles. 

An interesting point made in Dr. Carlton's 
talk was her observation of the Liberian 
culture and its influence upon the develop- 
ment of individual self -concepts. She point- 
ed out 'that West Africans appeal strongly to 
people from highly technological societies . 
One of these is the fact that she feels that 
the individual West African is completely 
himself in that he has not learned to hide 
himself behind a facade. She found the 
peonle to be honest with themselves and each 
other and they would not tolerate pompous 
individuals. Dr. Carlton further emphasized 
the closeness of family relationships and 
that they are, to the West African, the cent- 
ral theme of his existence. She pointed out 
that there is tremendous caring for small 
children, particularly for those who are left 
without parents. She related the story of 
one of her students, Edward Liberty, whose 
father had 75 (that's right) wives. His own 
mother was one of the youngest wives and had 
had nine children. Mien Edward's father 
died, a government official named Liberty who 
lently some sort of relative, adopted 
all nine of the children. Stressing the 
intensity of familial relationships, Dr. Carl- 
ton pointed out that many children in Liberia 
grow up c omen old enough to be their 
mothers 'Ma." 

"tore than 90 per cent of the people of 
ria are in some way involved in agricul- 
tural pursuits. This, in itself, Dr. Carlton 
nducive to more personal 
tionships and a prevailing concern for 
people and not tilings. Yet, Dr. Carlton con- 
tinued that this seems t la sense of 

story in these people <he stated, 

e I felt so much a part of history as 
.;i Liberi :n the west- 

itions that .fficult to even 

relate to hisl ike 

where one foot is still in the cent- 
Lle the other foot is advan 
one has the feeling that all 

-ins to be a nation 
ed in development than ideal 



Page Nine 



In other words, the fact that Liberia is on 
the one-party system is essential for a small 
developing nation in that it unites all 
energies in one direction rather than allow- 
ing them to become too diverse. Furthermore, 
with the installation of William Tolbert as 
President (at the death of William Tubman) 
the nation seems to be taking a new interest 
in development, yet the maintenance of the 
cultural heritage. For example, Dr. Carlton 
pointed out that the native African costume 
is presently often referred to as a 'business 
suit." 

Dr. Carlton has experienced many fascinating 
events within the past tiro years and is liter- 
ally quite infatuated with life in a small 
nation struggling for its very existence. She 
should be envied simply for the perspectives 
she has developed, if nothing else.

Dateline- CENTENARY- 



Scouting Report (I) 



by Tom Marshall 



Editor's Note: This is the first in a 
four-part series of columns that will 
examine, position by position, the Cen- 
tenary varsity basketball outlook for 
the upcoming 1972-73 season. 

THE GUARDS 

'The guard position is the most important 
position on the ball club from the stand- 
point of experience. The guards stabilize 
the team." 

The speaker is Centenary Head Basketball 
Coack Larry Little, and he should know. 
When you ask him about guards, he has a lot 
to talk about. 

When the Gents took the court in the Gold 
Dome on Sunday, October 15 for their first 
workout of the year, Little had eight peo- 
ple (excluding freshmen) competing for no 
more than "four or possibly five" guard spots 
on the squad. "The competition at the guard 
position is rough and each guy knows he has 
a job on his hands," says Little, contin- 
uing, "Not only for the first two positions, 
but also for the backups who will play a lot." 
lot." This leads the mentor to allow that, 
This leads the mentor to allow that, "At 
least from a numbers standpoint, we have 
more depth at guard than at any other 
position." 

for just a few spots, what's the situation? 
The answer to that question starts with 
Melvin Russell, the 6-1. 185-pounder out of 
Shreveport-Woodlawn who has been in the 
starting line-up every time that the Gents 
have taken the court for the past two 
seasons. 'Through the last two years, Mel- 
vin has been a stronger guard- -offensively 
and defensively- -than any we'll see all this 
year. He will pressure you in the last five 
minutes of a game exactly the same as he did 
at the beginning. And one of his greatest 
attributes is his complete and total dedi- 
cation to hustle- -not only in games but in 
practice as well. It's an inspiration to 
the other players." The only possible weak- 
ness in Russell's overall game, as Little 
sees it, is Melvin's shooting. "But," 
Little is quick to add, "he has improved 
his shooting to the point where I would la- 
bel him as an adequate outside shooter." 

Milton "Roadrunner" Home also ranks high 
in Little's guard corps. Home, who hails 
from Albany, N.Y., stands an even six feet 
and weighs in at 165. Milton's main assets 
are his ability to get the ball down against 
the press and to penetrate the defense when 
he gets there. Furthermore, he's a good pas- 
ser off the drive and a fair outside shooter," 
says Little. This year the Gents will be 
expecting a little more out of the Roadrunner 
--first, because he has a year of experience 
in the Centenary program and second, because 
he will be eligible for the entire season 
rather than only the second half (as was the 
case last season) . And Little also points 
out that Milton has worked a "great deal hard- 
er" in preparation for this season than he 
did for last. 



The third man the coach mentions when 
outlining his guard necleus is six-foot 
junior David Deets. From Collinsville, 111., 
Deets appeared in 19 of the Gents ' 25 games 
last season. "Dave played close to half of 
every game for the last half of the season 
last year," points out Little, "and he's the 
best shooting guard of the three (Deets , . 
Home, Russell). He doesn't have the quick- 
ness on the first step that either Melvin or 
Roadrunner have, but he can score off the 
drive real well." 

The rest of the eight prospects are 
seniors Bennie DePrang (5-10, 175, Haughton, 
La.) and Wynn Fontenot (6-2, 170, Lafayette, 
La.), and sophomores Rick Jacobs (6-4, 180, 
Mendota, 111.), Stan Welker (6-1, 160, Okla- 
homa City, Okla.) and Dale Kinkelaar (6-3, 
180, Effingham, 111.). Little by no means 
has counted any of these men out. "We need 
to go in with four or perhaps five good 
guards. And," he emphasizes, "some of the 
best shooting guards are left in that 
group- -Welker, Jacobs, Kinkelaar, Fontenot. 
This groups needs to mainly work on ball- 
handling and agressiveness, and some of 
that will come with experience." 

SYSTEMS & NUMBERS 

With all these guards, though, no more 
than two will be on the floor at the same 
time. "Whether we use a one-guard system 
or a two-guard system will depend not only 
on how our guards are playing, but also 
largely in how our forwards play up to 
their potential." 

How's the outlook for the running game? 
"Extremely good," Little replies without hes- 
itation. "Overall we can put out a group with 
excellent team speed. With say, Melvin and 
Roadrunner, we ought to be able to really 
wear some people down. And, according to the 
personnel of the opponents, we will be able 
to employ a pressing defense." 

Little also thinks that the fans may see 
some new faces this season at the guard spot 
--in particular a couple of the sophomore 
players. "Welker and Jacobs- -one or both of. 
them- -could help us a lot, provided they 
experience normal improvement. Either can 
come in and hit four or five straight, and 
will probably be counted on to do just 
that at some time." 

The overall rating of the guard spot? 
Little thinks a minute, and gives the fol- 
lowing assessment: "Our top three guards 
will be as good as anybody we play at that 
position. They combine excellent ball- 
handling ability, experience, and leader- 
ship potential with adequate shooting and 
defensive ability. The only possible weak- 
ness will be depth at the fourth or fifth 
man- -the man that it'll take to win some 
games . And we can ' t afford any injuries at 
this position."

The Navy Makes it Rain 
In Southern California 



oy Eric Mankin 

Santa Barbara, Calif. (AFS) _ 
The weather of an entire Southern 
California county is being used 
as a guinea pig to test Navy rain- 
making devices, despite an attemp- 
ted U. S. Senate ban on metero- 
logical warfare. 

Working under a contract with 
the U. S. Naval Weapons Center at 
China Lake, Calif., a company 
called North American Weather 
Consultants has been carrying out 
tests of "precipitation modifica- 
tion devices" in Santa Barbara 
County for at least four years -- 
tests which they plan to continue 
this winter. 

The tests involve the dis- 
persal of the chemical silver 
iodide from "fusees" which burn 
sending the silver compound in 
the form of finely dispersed 
smoke particles into selected 
cloud formations. The silver 
provides nuclei around which 
raindrops condense. According to 
a North American spokesman, un- 
der appropriate conditions use of 
the fusees increases rainfall by 
some 50 per cent. 

No control over the project 
is exercised by the residents of 
Santa Barbara County, a resort 
area which has suffered over $20 
million in flood damages over the 
past three years. The only civi- 
lian regulation ol~ the project 
currently in force is that' imposed 
by the California Department of 
Water Resources, winch issues 
licenses For rainmaking attempts 
in the state. 

Under California law, licen- 
sees must publish a "notice of 
intention" prior to beginning rain- 
making operations and file a re- 
port on operations immediate- 
ly after rainmaking attempts are 



concluded. However, state law 
contains no provision for public 
hearings or other means by which 
citizens might express their re- 
actions to proposed rainmaking 
projects. "If someone objected," 
a state official said, "they 
would have to file a suit. The 
state does not have any set pro- 
cedure . ' '

who is directing the Navy project

Classes Halted 
In School Crisis 

BATON ROUGE — Students took over 
and occupied the administration 
building at the Southern University 
campus here late Wednesday. 



BATON ROUGE- -Classes were can- 
celled this week at the predomi- 
nately black Southern University 
here after militant students 
marched on the administration 
building demanding the resig- 
nation of university president 
Leon Netterville, a veteran 
black educator. 

Activating 500 National Guards- 
men for the crisis Tuesday, Gov- 
ernor Edwin Edwards said the 
school would be closed until Mon- 
day, and promised to maintain or- 
der and security in the meantime. 

The closing followed more than 
a week of demonstrations by stu- 
dents who claimed that they are 
fed and housed poorly and have a 
weak voice in sdiool life. 

A protest last week, with an 
estimated 1000 studetns involved 
in a five -mile march and rally at 
the State Capitol , came after 



Southern administrators made what 
the students said was an unaccept- 
able response to a list of griev- 
ances they had presented. 

The students had complained to 
Netterville about inadequate fa- 
cilities and the loss of several 
faculty members in recent months, 
and had called for the resignation 
of Netterville and key members of 
his administration. 

Early this week, security po- 
lice turned back between one and 
two thousand studetns who marched 
on the Administration Building. 
In a statement, Netterville said, 
"On Tuesday morning, students at- 
tempted a seige of the administra- 
tion building and the physical 
removal of administrative officers 
from the campus. Faculty members 
were warned to leave the campus 
by noon or suffer bodily harm. 
In view of the extent of the dis- 
ruption and the seriousness of 
the situation, there remains no 
choice but to close the universi- 
ty as of noon Tuesday for an in- 
definite period." 

High School Day 

Centenary students will have 
a chance to demonstrate their 
commendable courtesy to visitors 
this weekend as about 200 high 
sdiool students visit the campus 
for Centenary's annual High 
Sdiool day. 

The students, who come pri- 
marily from the region surround- 
ing Shreveport, will be treated 
to, besides Gent hospitality, 
games and ice cream in llaynes 
Gym, football and a tug-o'-war 
on Hardin Field, plus a campus 
picnic in Crumley Gardens fol- 
lowed by another famous f notori- 
ous) Centenary All -Campus Revue, 
concluding with a concert by 
folk -pop singer John D. Louder - 
milk. 

According to the Admissions 
Office, an average of approx- 
imate!'. 1 :f the students who 
visit Centenary during this 
annual event eventual lv enroll.

Senate Calls for 
Mardi Gras Holiday 

By Carol Bickers 

At its Tuesday meeting the Senate un- 
animously approved the proposal calling for 
a Mardi Gras holiday. 

The proposal- -written by Dr. Wilfred 
Guerin, Dr. Rosemary Seidler, and Freshman 
Senator Joey Lacoste- -called for a three- 
day Mardi Gras holiday next semester on 
March 5-7. In the proposal it was noted 
that such a holiday would not only encourage 
Centenary students to participate in a sig- 
nificant cultural event but it would also 
aid in recruitment. 

Furthermore, the committee made the fol- 
lowing suggestions to the Senate concerning 
the proposed Mardi Gras motion: 

1) The holiday should be experimental. 
If there is a lack of participation, 
it should be dropped. 

2) Special festivities should be ar- 
ranged for those students who remain 
on campus . 

3) The Senate should sponsor buses to 
New Orleans. 

4) Three days could be deleted from the 
spring break in order to secure a 
Mardi Gras holiday. 

5) The Senate could make arrangements to 
accomodate Students at Dillard Univer- 
sity in New Orleans . 

If this Mardi Gras proposal is not ap- 
proved, the committee suggested that the 
Senate petition for a holiday in 1974. At 
this point Senate adviser Mr. W.P. Garvin 
pointed out that the Senate might be more 
successful in its bid for a holiday if it 
opted for a two-day break instead of three 
days. His suggestion was accepted in the 
final motion. 

In a series of brief announcements Presi- 
dent Rick Clark noted that he would be work- 
ing with the manager of the new Sheraton Inn 
in Bossier to perhaps secure one their ban- 
quet rooms for a future dance. It was 
pointed out at Tuesday's meeting that the 
response to on-campus dances is very poor. 

Clark also announced that the Centenary 
Tennis Association will be holding a train- 
ing session for beginning and intermediate 
players tomorrow at 10:00 am on the Hardin 
Courts . 

Jeff Hendricks , Sophomore Senator, an- 
nounced that Mr. Anthony Burgess will be 
in James Lobby following tonight's forum 
for an informal discussion.

At 3:00 pm, on Sunday, November the 5th, 
the Church of the Holy Cross (Episcopal) and 
the Shreveport Symphony will present the 
Shreveport Woodwind Quintet as guest artists 
in a recital . 

There will be six selections in the pro- 
gram, ranging from Trois Pieces Breves by 
Ibert all the way to Three Shanties by 
Mai com Arnold. 

The concert is open to the public, in- 
cluding non-Episcopalians, and there is no 
admissions charge. For details, call The 
Very Reverend Kenneth W. Paul at 822-3325. 
The Church of the Holy Cross is located at 
Texas Avenue and 875 Cotton Street. 

Interim in Europe 

There will be a final organizational 
meeting on Wednesday, November 8, at 9:40 am 
in 1B08 for all those who would like to 
join a tour group to England and other parts 
of Europe during the January Interim and 
obtain credit for either English 199 or His- 
tory and Government 199. 

The group will spend the first week in 
London and then split up, with Dr. Viva 
Rainey taking one part on a bus tour of 
Spain, Portugal, and Morocco. The entire 
cost for the three weeks, including air 
fare, will be about $650. Dr. Fergal Gal- 
lagher will take a group on a literary 
tour of England; or, if enough people are 
interested, on a tour of European capitals, 
perhaps spending a week each in London, 
Paris, and Rome. The cost of the tour of 
England will be about $650, while the expand- 
ed Continental tour would cost about $850.

A study released by The Tax Foundation, 
Inc., reveals that, while less than n of 
persons earning over $200,000 a year paid no 
Federal Income Tax last year, nearly 301 of 
those earning under $10,000 paid no such tax.

The Charles Darwin Research Institute has 
announced that next year they will launch 
a 90 -day research expedition to the Galapagos 
Islands. They want students for the trip, and 
offer credit. Write 3001 Red Hill, Costa 
Mesa, Calif. 92626. It was, as you may (or 
may not) recall, Darwin's sojourn among the 
Galapagos aboard the H.M.S. Beagle (during, 
of course, the dog days) that was primarily 
responsible for the young researcher's formu- 
lation of his theories on evolution and 
natural selection — theories he later re- 
canted.

A few weeks ago, the CONGLOMERATE ran an 
article about the newly-proclaimed Republic 
of Minerva. As usual, we were in the fore- 
front; it took Newsweek until last week to 
get around to it. The situation at present 
is precarious: while the Minervans are 
changing over from their Provisional Govern- 
ment to their permanent system, the Tongan 
Islands are pressing their claim to the atolls 
Meanwhile, CONGLOMERATE News Editor Jeff 
Daiell, who last week burned his voter regis- 
tration card and returned the ashes to his 
superintendent of elections , has made formal 

application for entry into the Republic.

Students are reminded to register for 
Interim Courses as soon as possible. Any 
classes with an insufficient number of stu- 
dents will be cancelled on Nov. 22. Regis- 
tration forms and Interim schedules may be 
picked-up in the Registrar's Office. They 
must be signed by the Instructor of the 
course and returned to the Registrar's 

Office.

Mr. Garvin adds one more item about 
the Louisiana Senate race. According to 
Mr. G., 1) people who tend to vote "no 
matter what" are those in high-income, 
high-status positions; 2) these are 
usually Republicans, but 3) in Louis- 
iana, they tend to be Establishment 
Democrats; 4) these are the most like- 
ly to support Bennett Johnston; 5) thus, 
the worse the weather, the better will 
be Johnston's chances. 

Bells lo Ring during Tuesday Performance 

One thing Centenary needs more of is 
Southern bells. Therefore, it is to be the 
cause of great rejoicing come Tuesday night, 
November 7th (when some people will be home, 
agonizing over the election returns--no mat- 
ter who wins) when the First United Methodist 
Church's El Dorado (Arkansas) Bell Choir gives 
a thirty minute performance in the chapel . 
Following that, there will be what is known 
in the trade as a "free period." 

The main Methodists to this madness are 
Mr. and Mrs. Gordon and Helen Betenbaugh, 
the last of which serves on the Council of 
National Handbell Ringers in America. 

The show, which begins at 6 p.m., is free. 

The bells together have a range of 3-4 
octaves. The Choir consists of 12 people, 
each assigned 4 bells . 

The show is being sponsored by the Centen- 
ary student chapter of the American Guild of 
Organists. 

There can be no denying that a show of this 
sort has a peal. My hunch is that you'll like 
it, so come on out just for the bell of it, 
and, if you don't like it, I'll take my hunch 
back. 






Centenary Students 
Volunteer For Work 

While there is a lot of talk these days 
among young people about "getting involved" 
few take the time to actually do so. But 
when Centenary College students decided to 
do something worthwhile, the Community Act- 
ion Agency was the winner. 

•Approximately fifty students signed up 
to do volunteer work, primarily in the 
Wilkinson Terrace area. Some are sociology 
majors studying under Dr. Ferrell Pledger, 
while others are in education classes of 
Dr. Joe Gamer and Dr. Theodore Knauss. 
And others are simply students who wanted 
to do something meaningful. 

Thanks to the manpower supplied by the 
volunteers, the program at Wilkinson Ter- 
race has been expanded to include day care, 
tutoring, recreation, Friday night movies 
for residents of the community, visitation 
for the elderly, and consumer education. 

The Zeta Tau Alpha sorority actives have 
taken on a special tutoring project, and 
the pledges are hosting a recreation pro- 
gram for the youngsters. Community involve- 
ment is an education in itself, for anyone 
...volunteer or participant.

Salori Benefit Sel 

Satori House, the crisis center and re- 
ferral service, proudly announces its "Post- 
Halloween, Pre -Thanksgiving, Leaning on 
Christmas Benefit Rock Concert." And that's 
the truth. 

The house, of course, besides being a 
24-hour call-up service, is also a walk-in 
center, located at 1029 Dalzell. 

The concert, according to Satori re- 
presentatives, will be "featuring many local 
groups and" single artists." It will cost a 
minimal donation of 97i at the door with 
more, of course, appreciated. The donations 
will be used- entirely for the operation and 
maintenace of Satori House. 

It's set for November 10th (Friday) at 
8 pm, to be held in Centenary's own Haynes 
Gym. No concluding hour was given. 

Satori House tries to co-ordinate exist- 
ing services, legal, medical, welfare, and 
many others. Right now they are consider- 
ing commencing operation of a free store. 
Since Satori is supported completely by 
private donations, and since it costs about 
$225 a month to run Satori House, and since 
the center is very much in debt, they at- 
tempt to raise money by means of concerts , 
basketball games, baseball games, and the 
like.

Crawford Priesl Moves 

A complete sheet music store, Crawford 
Priest Music has been purchased by Stan 
Lewis and moved to Southfield. 

Dealers of sheet music in Shreveport 
since 1948, Mr. and Mrs. J. Crawford 
Priest have served the area with the

Wells Recital Tonight 



Tonight at 8:00, Nena Plant Wideman will 
present student Timothy Wells, pianist, in 
recital at the Hurley Music Building Audi- 
torium. 

Works by Scarlatti, Beethoven, Brahms, De- 
bussy, and Liszt will be featured at the 
recital 

This is just one is a series of outstand- 
ing musical presentations to be given at Cen- 
tenary this year. 

Rack in the USSR 

"Greetings, tovarisch!" 

If you've never heard that exclamation 
before, now's your chance. Centenary Col- 
lege is offering standard Interim credit for 
students participating in Southern Methodist 
University's Inter-Term in the Soviet Union. 

During this three -week visit to \he main 
political and cultural centers of the Union 
of Soviet Socialist Republics, such as Mos- 
cow, Kiev, and Leningrad (among others) , 
the student will gain exposure to Russian/ 
Soviet language, theatre, architecture, 
historical monuments, and art -- and also 
such facets of Soviet life as living con- 
ditions, education, women's rights, the 
family, urbanization and many others. 

It all starts December 28, when the class 
leaves Dallas for London. Arrival in Russia 
is scheduled for the 30th, and on the 18th 
students will return to Dallas. 

There is , by the way , a nominal cost of 
1,160 dollars, plus incidentals such as visa 
fees, airport taxes, and other items. 

More information may be obtained by con- 
tacting:

It is naturally to be hoped that every stu- 
dent participating in this course will be 
both personally and educationally enriched. 



Kellogg Foundation Grant At Mid Stream 

by Nancy Millerton 

The Library has reached the half-way point 
in the spending of the $5,000 Kellogg Founda- 
tion Grant awarded to Centenary College last 
year for the purdiase of library materials 
related to the study of the enviroment. Many 
of the Kellogg books , which are marked with 
a special Kellogg Foundation gift plate, are 
already catalogued and are receiving heavy 
use from students and faculty engaged in 
reading and research projects related to the 
environment. The Kellogg Library Grant Com- 
mittee and the library staff have been re- 
sponsible for the selection of books to be 
purchased with the Kellogg funds. Many of 
the selections have been purchased on re- 
quests and suggestions submitted by students 
and members of the faculty. 

A special book jacket display at the Lib- 
rary illustrates the variety of the Kellogg 
selections. The range of topics includes 
conservation, pollution, rural and urban 
planning, man in society, and of course a 



variety of books designed to encourage the 
enjoyment of nature. There are at least some 
titles that are of direct interest to nearly 
every department on campus. The emphasis 
of the selections is to some extent on the 
environment in Louisiana and the South, but 
over half the selections deal with the 
United States as a whole, and many titles 
cover environmental problems in the oceans 
and the more distant corners of the globe. 

The Library anticipates that the Kellogg 
Grant, which is to be used over a three year 
period, will enable the library to add 700 
to 800 new envirnoment books to the collect- 
ion. Whatever part Centenary and its faculty 
and students eventually have in helping solve 
the environment problems that face the nation 
and the world, the Kellogg Foundation will 
deserve much of the credit for providing the 
library materials that help inspire and do 
indeed support these desired achievements.

MAN THINKS 

To the Editor: 

I am afraid that millions upon millions of 
people in this world do not realize that man 
is fundamentally different from all other 
living organisms. This difference is that 
man and man alone can think, man is the only 
reasoning animal. A human being's reason is 
his only means of survival, and to reject 
reason is to die. As I said, millions of 
people do not realize this, case in point: 
Dr. Pomeroy's letter in last week's CON- 
GLOMERATE. 

In his letter, Dr. Pomeroy failed to 
define evil. ("We may play around with it, 
but find no meaningful answer.") I want to 
start with the definition of good and evil. 
Good is that which tends to sustain life and 
evil is that which tends to harm life. Good 
and evil do not exist for non-living matter. 
A stone has no good or evil. Different 
organisms react to good and evil differently. 
A plant has no consciousness, thus has no 
choice in its actions --it must act to further 
its life. Animals have a primitive form of 
consciousness , so they may make choices as 
to what is good and what is evil , but these 
choices are guided by instincts. Man is the 
only organism that posesses a full conscious- 
ness. A man has no automatic system to tell 
him what is good and what is evil, a man 
must reason, he must use his mind, he must 
think . 

Man has no fangs, clawa, protective color- 
ation, or other equipment for survival. Man's 
only means of survival is reason. Any man who 
lives by "instinct", "intuition", "gut feel- 
ing", "faith", or anything less than full 
conscious, objective reason, is living, not 
as a man, but as a sub-human animal. Dr. Pom- 
eroy's letter insults anyone who functions as 
a rational human being, in that his concept 
of god is degrading to man. The concept puts 
man as an inferior being who can only worship 
a higher ideal that he may never attain If 
any ideal is worth dreaming of, it is worth 
trying to achieve. So the concept of god is 
not only irrational and illogical, but it is 



also morally evil. 

Since the dawning of man, ethics (identi- 
fication of good and evil) has been dominated 
by the mystics of religion. We must remove 
this monopoly from the hands of the irration- 
al and emotion ridden sub -humans and place 
it where it belongs, in the hands of respon- 
sible and rational men. 

Respectfully, 
Larry Wright 

EXAMINE THE FACTS 

To the Editor: 

In- answer to an article on "Love Story" 
in one of the previous issues I felt there 
must be a reply made. So I felt the truth 
would be the best reply. Because of the. 
ridiculous statements made in the article 
I intend to relay the true meaning of God 
and what He did through Jesus Christ and 
destroy any content of the previous article. 
First, Christianity is based on histori- 
cal fact. Not philosophy! The author of 
the Love Story letter stated that he didn't 
feel there could be a God because of the 
problems in the world today. The reason for 
the problems is because man is trying to run 
his own life instead of letting God run it. 
In the same way Oliver and Jennifer ignored 
God. You notice that in the story they were 
both negative on God. Well no wonder they 
had problems. And this is the reason that 
so many people have problems today. They 
aren't trusting God with them. You may 
think that the last sentence is strange. 
Well you ought to try it sometime. The 
rebellion from God is called sin. 

And all this is, is just spiritual se- 
paration from God. O.K. man is sinful. 
Everyone knows this. But this brings up the 
most fantastic concept we have today. God 
could have let us perish in our own sin 
because He said "for the wages of sin is 
death" in Romans 6:23. Now here comes the 
greatest love concept if you want to call it 
a concept. I generally call it an act. For 
God showed His own love for us in that while 
we were yet sinners Christ died for us- (Ro- 
mans 5:8) . 

You might say, well who is Jesus Christ? 
Good question. Jesus Christ is the Son of 
God and the Savior of thw world. You then 
might ask for what ridiculous reasons would 
I say something like this? But I say exam- 
ine the facts. And then ask yourself this 
question. Could Jesus really be who He 
said He was? And then make a conclusion. 
It could mean the difference in your life. 
I know it did in mine. 

Tracy Howard 

SUBSTANCELESS FRIVOLITY 

To the Editor: 

In the begining was the Wind, and the 
Mind was with Man, and the Mind was Man. 
The same was in the beginning with Man. 
All things were made by it; and without it 
was not anything made that was made. In 
it was life; and the life was the light 
of men. And the light shineth in darkness; 
and the darkness comphrehended i t not . 
— the real "Good News" 

I have read and reread Dr. Pomeroy's 
letter of last week (CONGLOMERATE, Oct. 
27), searching for a glimpse, glimmer, 
or glint of logic, reason, or rationality. 
Finding only, however, a Webb of substance- 
less frivolity (frivolous insubstance?) , I 
resigned myself to the potentially frus- 
trating task of answering nothing with 
something. I proceed: 

The creation story (assuming Dr. Pome- 
roy meant the Judeo- Christian creation 
story, and not the Buddhist creation 
story, the Hindu creation story, the 
Olympian creation story, the Zoroastrian 
creation story, etc., etc.) does not say 
that Man is responsible for evil, merely 
that Man acted in such a way as to anger 
God, who then opened the proverbial flood- 
gates. Adam and Eve committed one count 
it one misdeed; it was our friend The Lord 
who done did the rest. 

Job's wife was in no way denied God- the 
good Doctor's extrapolation of that theory 
is remarkable at best and mind-boggling 
otherwise. Rather, Job's wife was affirm- 
ing not only her belief in God, but also 
her faith in his potency. She urged friend 
Job to curse God and die believing that the 
cursing of God would so anger His Amazing 
Graceship as to cause him to strike Job 
dead. 

Dr. Pomeroy then goes on to pontificate 






:-::■>.

November 3, 1972 



MoreDaiell 

that there is no answer to the source of 
evil --but that Christians must respond to it. 
This is the remark of limited resources ; it 
is far more efficacious to drain swamps than 
to swat flies. And what is the good Doctor's 
formula? Faith! In an abdication degrading 
to the very concept of Humanity and virtually 
spitting upon both Man's heritage and His 
potential, Dr. Pomeroy completely abandons 
any meaningful struggle, and nonchalantly 
discards Man's primary weapon, the mind. 

I say yes_, that there is_ a rational answer 
to the existence of evil, if only human be- 
ings will have the courage and the fortitude 
and the intelligence to seek it.

race Neigliboorhood Center. They are supervis- 
ing elementary school children from low in-

listen. 

At their Monday n« ...ig the ZTA actives 

were kidnapped by the pledges and taken to 
Karon Stephenson's home in Shreveport. Brac-

were surprised with a Halloween party. Every- 
one enjoyed goodies, games, and Halloween 
carols. Congratulations go to Leslie GoeHB

result of the party, anyone should be able 
to ask a ZTA active to sing "Deck the Patch

quick response!

Navy Makes Rai n 

From Page One 

bara tests have "no military applications, as 
such." China Lake Naval Weapons Center "just 
happens to be where this researdi is done. 
If you're thinking in ten\s of military appli- 
cations, there are none as far as I know." 

Senator Claibome Pell of Rhode Island has 
charged, however, that U. S. forces in Indo- 
china are engaged in rainmaking over Vietnam, 
both to clear target areas of clouds for later 
bombing and also--it is char=;ed--to flood areas, 
in combination with bombing and weakening 
of the North Vietnamese dike system. Asked 
about this by a reporter from the Santa 
Barbara News and Review , Thompson replied 
"if you estimate the amount of damage done 
by impeding someone's transportation (by 
flooding) as opposed to blowing them up, or 
burning them up, I don't think it's so immoral." 

Thompson emphasized that the work carried 
on in Santa Barbara was all unclassified, and 
went on to stress the peaceful uses of rain- 
making technology in hurricane control and ag- 
riculture. 

The project director denied that there 
was any connection between Navy- financed 
rainmaking activities and the disastrous 
Santa Barbara floods of 1969 and 1971. In 
1968, he acknowledged, cloud seeding opera- 
tions were carried on in the months before 
the January, 1969 overflow, "but when it be- 
came apparent that there would be problems, 
we ceased operations. The watershed was 
completely saturated; the one thing the area 
didn't need was more rain." 

According to Thompson, the silver iodide 
rainmaking method has its effects within 
only a few hours of dispersal of the chemical , 
and leaves no residue in the environment. 

Weather control apparently remains a part 
of the U. S. arsenal in Asia, despite Senate 
protest. A recent news item in the armed 
forces publication Stars and Stripes mentioned 
that planes based at Kurat Air Force Base, 
Thailand, were engaged in a variety of 
missions, "including cloudseeding." 

Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin recent- 
ly attempted to write into this year's mili- 
tary procurement authorization a provision 
against "the dissemination of equipment or 
instructions , or the procuring of agents for 
starting firestorms, or using weather modifi- 
cation as a weapon of war." 

The Nelson provisions were eliminated in 
conference with the House of Representatives 
when the House conferees objected that "time 
was not available to gather information to 
evaluate the effects such an amendment might 
have on Department of Defense operations"- - 
an objection some legislative observers 
took as an indication that rainmaking remains 
part of the American arsenal in Asia. 

Researchers contacted at China Lake were 
unable either to confirm or deny that the 
devices being tested in Santa Barbara were 
the same as those used over Indochina. They 
acknowledged, however, that devices designed 
at China Lake were in use in military opera- 
tions in Okinawa, the Philippines, and Alaska. 

In addition to China Lake, research on 
rainmaking is also reportedly in progress at 
at least two other locations: East St. Louis, 
where the Air Force operates a center at Scott 
Field; and the Environmental Technology 
Applications Center, in Suitland, Maryland. 
It is therefore at least possible that Santa 
Barbara County is not a testing ground for 
weapons for Vietnam. But whatever is happen- 
ing, it is clear that the citizens of Santa 
Barbara have little say in it.

In the midst of Faulknerian criticism

certain query pounds incessantly at the 
doors of our minds: "Are the polls to be 
believed?" After a quick "Nay" and a 
quicker "What then?" we somehow see an 
answer clearly rising on the horizon: 
"Heed ye--the fool-proof method of deter- 
mining voter preference is simple human 
ecosociop sychological observation ."

ANALYSIS by MM 



The mind wanders as one ponders the com- 
plexities of this Presidential election. 
Ponder wander wander ponder wander ponder 
ponder wander. The kaliedoscope accelerates. 
Boxes become distorted. Indeed, 
The Rivers themselves speak: 
'^One and seven, 
Two and three. 
Go to heaven; 
I like me." 

(Filth oozes from the scoundrel's lamp. 
The warm, yet cold, knee of Liberty blazes 
Forth from the herald's trumpet 
Yes.) 

Dr. X 

There are many complicating factors in this 
Presidential election. Factors factors fac- 
tors factors factors factors factors factors. 
A multivariate Pearson product -moment fac- 
torial correlation coefficient matrix by Mr 
Dulle's statistics class reveals three factors 
which should be critical in determining the 
Nov. 7th outcome: 

1) The resettled eastern Anglo- Luxembourg ian 
migrant farmer bloc. 

2) The 34-year-old bloc. 

3) The dead vote. 

The first two are obviously self-explanatory 
Obviously. The third, however, may need ela- 




voters of Chicago, who turned out at the polls 
en masse . . . . 

"For too long, the dead have been the most 
ignored, downtrodden segment of American so- 
ciety The dead are the true silent majority. 

"It is time for America to recognize the 

rights of the embalmed They are still 

residents of this country and their roots 
are deeply implanted. They have enriched 
both our heritage and our soil. These exem- 
plary citizens do not pollute, neither do 
they consume. Is it too big a sacrifice to 
grant these model Americans, these stal- 
warts ot democracy, a voice in determining 
the destiny of the land of which they have 
come to feel an integral part?... 

"If politicians lack the courage to stand 
up for the rights of the embalmed, perhaps 
the fear of a Dead Power movement will 
inspire them to be responsive to the under- 
ground electorate. Let every cemetery i n 
the nation reverberate with the anguished 
rhetoric of candidates actively courting 
this new constituency. 

'Together with our forefathers, let us 
resurrect the American spirit." 

3. POLITICAL PROPAGANDA by JG 

NOTE: Unbeknownst to Party officials, the 
following memo was seized at Gaterwate Repub- 
lican Headquarters by democratic "offensive 
security" agents (in other words, spies). 
Out of creative laziness and respect for an 
excellent seizure, I wish to share with you 
some golden-gilded goodies from "To Concerned 
Americans": 

Our country confronts grave danger at this 
moment in history. The trouble is two-faced: 
the election and the War. From a most care- 
ful consideration of all arguments from all 
points -of -view, a Plan has been forged which 
simultaneously overcomes both dimensions. 

In spite of its undesirable consequences, 
not to mention motives, an election appears' 
eminent. The choice is so logically clear- 
cut as to be ridiculous: the President must 
be re-elected (partially in the hope that 
elections- -such worrisome affairs.' --will be 
prevented in the future). Rationality can 
hardly be used against His Opponent; it is 
in vain. Therefore, the President must

return to the White House at all costs! 
But how? given the quite incomprehensible, 
if undeniable, rise in popularity of His 
Enemy. 

The problem caused by the War is that it 
is disturbing to the sentimental masses 
(how they are to be pitied!) who seem to feel 
that War is evil. The correct conclusion, 
on the contrary , is more than obvious : War 
exists for the good of the State, for if 
there were universal peace, why! what on 
earth would we do? 

Unnaturally knowledgeable of the above- 
mentioned fact as well as the above-mentioned 
misconception, the President's ingenuity is 
at this point demonstrable. Expediency , 
indeed, will dictate a gesture toward the 
settlement of the War, secure in the belief 
that the voters shall be snowed into choosing 
such a Peace-Maker. The President's Plan, 
then, is to spread the rumor that He is 
ending the War. Thus, His re-election is 
assured. Subtle, huh? It goes without 
saying that after the election, the War 
must continue. 

Re-elect the President!

Grow Your Own 
In California 

by Dennis Briskin 

San Francisco, Ca. (AFS)-- California is 
shortly to become the first state to vote 
on marijuana. 

During the Nov. 7 election, the state's 
voters will be asked to decide on a proposal 
to remove criminal penalties for anyone 18 
or older for "planting, cultivating, har- 
vesting, drying, processing, otherwise pre- 
paring, transporting, or possessing mari- 
juana for personal use." The measure also 
prohibits "persons under the influence of 
marijuana from engaging in conduct that 
endangers others." Selling would remain 
illegal. 

That's it. Otherwise, you'll be able to 
grow your own in California. 

If it passes. An early-September poll 
showed only 33 per cen,t support for the 
California Marijuana Initiative (Oil). There 
is strong support for the measure in nortiiern 
California, particularly in the San Francisco 
Bay Area, but half the state's 20 million 
population is concentrated in highly conser- 
vative Los Angeles, San Diego and Orange 
Counties. 

Oil's organizers, a loose collection of 
lawyers, doctors, drug experts and other 
volunteers, think the outcome is still un- 
certain. 

Gordon Brownell, the Initiative's political 
co-ordinator, believes the polls don't ac- 
curately represent popular opinion on mari- 
juana. "A lot of people who will vote for 
the measure don't want to say so to inter- 
viewers," he says. Oil is counting on the 
so-far-unrevealed support they're sure is 
out there. 

Win or lose, the Marijuana Initiative has 
already made an impressive showing. In four 
months its 20,000 volunteers collected 380,000 
valid signatures, 50,000 more than the mini- 
mum meeded to put the measure on the ballot. 

Oil has also gained endorsements from a 
wide variety of organizations, including the 
California and San Francisco Bar Associations, 
the Democratic Central Committees of Los 
Angeles, San Francisco and Sacramento, the 
ACLU, the San Francisco Deputy Sheriffs' 
Coalition and the San Francisco Police 
Officers for Justice. 

All of this was done with very little 
money. Of the estimated $40,000 spent to 
get the measure on the ballot, most came from 
small contributions. The largest single 
source of funds, approximately $15,000, has 
been Amorphia, a non-profit co-operative work- 
ing for reform of marijuana laws. 

. Amorphia raises its money by selling 
cigarette papers under the brand name "Aca- 
pulco Gold." The papers are distributed 
nationally and billed as "the only papers 
made from pure hemp fiber from marijuana 
stalks." In the year ending May 1, Amorphia 
had gross sales of $100,000 from the papers. 

Amorphia's activities have not been limit- 
ed to California. It was active in the unsuc- 
cessful efforts to qualify marijuana reform 
initiatives in Washington, Oregon, Arizona 



LEGALIZE 

ret 







and Michigan. 

Michael Aldrich, Amorphia's co-director 
and editor of The Marijuana Review , believes 
what is happening now in California will have 
tremendous impact on the rest of the country. 

"Twenty states now have the initiative 
as a means for changing the law," he says. 
"Marijuana could be on the ballot in ten or 
12 of. them in the next few years. And the 
issue has wider appeal than most people think. 

Oil's Brownell echoes Aldrich 's thoughts. 
"Even if we don't win, it will still be a 
victory. We took a so-called 'freak issue', 
(smoking pot), and legitimized it. We put it 
before the public and won endorsements. If 
we don't make it this year, it will be an 
issue again in '74. It will come of age 
eventually." 

As California goes . . . . ? 

Editor's Note: In next week's CONGLOM- 
ERATE, Shreveport attorney Wellborn Jack, Jr., 
will discuss local applications of marijuana 
laws . 



jethroTull Enthralls 
Baton Rouge 

Audience 

by David Lawrence and 
Jim Hobbs 

In their first American tour in over a 
year, the brilliantly innovative British 
rock group Jethro Tull enthralled an audi- 
ence of over 12,000 in the near-packed LSU 
Assembly Center in Baton Rouge. Combining 
showmanship with musical talent, the group 
led by the bizarre Ian Anderson offered the 
appreciative audience a barrage of contin- 
uous music with a variety of special effects, 
including a giant rabbit, a huge gorilla, 
and a chaotic strobe-lit scene. Musical 
effects included a highly effective use of 
audio processing to produce an exaggerated 
single-repeat/delay effect and occasional 
"synthesizing" of the entire group's sound 
rather than a single instrument. 

Jethro Tull, unlike many other rock 
groups, successfully brings the high quality 
of their recordings to the concert stage. 
The listener can hear flutist Anderson's 
classical influences in the slower, intro- 
spective passages as opposed to the effect 
of modern jazz on the brash, up-tempo 
sections. 

The multi -talented group opened its per- 
formance with an unusual lack of fanfare as 
Anderson began the first number, lasting a 
full hour. Quietly strumming his guitar 
Anderson started a medly which included the 
entirety of 'Thick as a Brick" featuring an 
extraordinary flute solo and other numbers 
unrecognized by our staff of Jethro Tull 
experts . 

Where one normally turns the record over, 
bass player Jeffey Hammond -Hammond inserted 
a short newscast complete with weather re- 
port and news flash (a powder charge) . 

The second number began with "Cross Eyed 
Mar>'" and contained parts of several other 
songs ending with 'locomotive Breath." It 
included a lengthy drum solo in which drum- 
mer Clive Buncher showed his virtuosity by 
performing difficult superimposed rhythms . 

Few groups give 2 hour concerts , and 
fewer two hour concerts contain only two 
songs. Still the audience demanded an 
encore which consisted mostly of new songs- 
some from their new album, "Living in The 
Past". After thirty minutes Tull ended with 
what Anderson terms his concert closer: a 
message, "wind up." 

Anderson, performing with the handi- 
cap of fever of over 100°, believes that 
if one person who has previously heard his 
group leaves the concert dissatisfied he 
has failed as a performer. Anderson's 
high temperature notwithstanding, Jethro 
Tull poured forth with a very satisfying 
display of talent and energy. It is 
our belief that his artistic goal was 
realized. 




Batman has hit Batmobile, but the Louisiana State Police aren't far behind, as 
the wonders of technology come to even the guardians of the Pelican State.

Slow Time on a Fast Trip 

Imagine the explorer twins, Speedy and 
Poke. 

At thirty yars of age, Speedy leaves in 
a rocket ship to explore the galaxy. Poke 
stays behind and pokes around old caves on 
earth. 

After a spell of fifty years by earth, 
Speedy returns. By this time, 80 year-year- 
old Poke is too feeble to be spelunking and 
is usually to be found in a rocker in front 
of his fireplace, reminiscing about the old 
days. But Speedy, because his rocket ship 
has been moving much faster through the ga- 
laxy than the earth, has aged only about 
five years. And in fact all the clocks 
and calendars in his rocket say that only 
five years have elapsed since he left earth' 
First thing he does is go visit his brother, 
and after seeing him in his rocking chair im- 
mediately volunteers for another, perhaps we 
should say, space/time trip. 

This fantasy is possible because of 
Einstein's relativity theory, which says that 
the faster a clock moves the slower it keeps 
time — as velocity increases time slows down. 
Some physicists see this as a paradox because 
relativity theory also says that all veloci- 
ties are relative except the velocity of 
light, so that for instance in the twin fan- 
tasy, no one can say which twin is moving 
faster. 

We could consider the twin in the rocket 
to be at rest and everything in the universe, 
including his stay-at-home brother, moving. 
In this case it would seem that it's the 
stay-at-home's clock that is moving faster 
and should therefore be losing time! This 
conundrum is called the clock (or twin) 
paradox. 

It is true that if the twins communicate 
with each other by radio, since the radio 
signals take time to get from one twin to 
the other, each twin will regard the other as 
being behind the "correct" time. Each twin 
thinks of his 'own time as "correct" and the 
signaled time as out of date. However 
there needn't be a paradox at all. We can 
take a point of view in which both clocks 
are moving relative to some frame of refer- 
ence (called an inertial frame.) Then we 
can ask unambiguously which clock is mov- 
ing faster through the frame. In our 
story of the twins, the inertial frame would 
be the whole galaxy. And from the point of 
view of the whole galaxy it is clear that 
Speedy in his rocket is going much faster than 
Poke on earth- -even though the sun is drag- 



ging the earth through tfie galaxy at the re- 
spectable rate of some 3S miles per second. 

Many people are not convinced by this kind 
of analysis. They demand experimental evi- 
dence- -and just such evidence was reported 
by J.C. Hafele and Richard E. Keating in 
Science (July 14, 1972.) Clocks were flown, 
not around the galaxy but around the earth, 
and lo-and-behold they were found to differ 
from a reference clock on the ground by 
just the amount predicted by relativity theory 

For clocks flying at jetplane speeds, the 
time difference is measured in billionths of 
a second (nanoseconds) , so the clocks have to 
be extremely accurate. Cesium clocks fit the 
bill; their accuracy is based on the fact 
that atoms of the cesium isotope 133 can be 
made to vibrate at a rate of 9,197,631,770 
cycles per second. (In fact, the standard 
second is defined as 9,192,631,770 cycles of 
a certain energy change in cesium 133.) 

Four cesium clocks were flown from 
Washington, D. C. in an eastward round-the- 
world trip, and then in a westward round- 
the-world trip. At the beginnings and ends 
of these trips the clocks were compared with 
the Standard cesium clock in Washington. 

Relativity theory predicts that the east- 
bound clocks will lose time and the west- 
bound clocks will gain- -with respect to the 
reference clock on the ground. (This has 
nothing to do with the usual time zone 
changes in which you set your clock back or 
forward by hours to maintain arbitrary time 
standards.) 

To understand the relativistic time changes 
you have to take as your point of view an in- 
ertial frame in which both the clock on the 
ground and the clocks in the jet are moving. 
A convenient viewing-stand is a point high 
above the North Pole. The earth's rotation 
from west to east will move the Washington- 
based clock several hundred miles per hour. 
From the point of view of the inertial frame, 
the westbound jet actually moves its clocks 
slower than the clock on the ground, so the 
westbound clocks gain time- -time goes faster 
for them. From our above -the -North -Pole 
grand-stand, the eastbound jet carries its 
clocks faster than the clock on the ground, 
so the eastbound clocks lose time- -time goes 
slower for them. 

Actually four cesium clocks were flown 
around the world becasue there are billionths- 
of-a-second differences in their accuracy, 
and only by averaging their times could their 
accuracy be improved enough to confidently 
detect the relativistic changes. The meas- 
ured changes were in very close agreement with 
predictions of relativity theory. For the 
eastward trip the predicted loss in time was 
40 (plus or minus 23) nanoseconds, while the 
measured loss was S9 (plus or minus 21) nano- 
seconds . You couldn't ask for a much closer 
fit of experiment to prediction. 

So time really does slow down for the fast- 
er moving clock! We've measured it. That 
time slows down drastically for the galaxy- 
exploring twin is a fantasy only because we 
haven't yet built fast enough rockets. 

In principle the twin fantasy is true. 
Can real galactic explorers be far behind? 




Externalities of Pollution 



by Maureen and Keith Haight/Alternative 
Features Service 

Company prof it-and- loss statements do not 
include "externalities"- -the social costs of 
production, but the question of who bears 
these costs is central to resolving our pol- 
lution problems. Pollution-induced diseases 
cost the American people $38 billion annually 
($25 billion for lost wages and production, 
$7 billion for health services, and $6 billion 
in disability payments) . Air pollution des- 
troys $25 million worth of California's crops 

year. Industry does not pay these costs: 
you do. 

The Indian chief, Tecumseh, when approached 
by white land buyers, expressed sentiments 
i are re-emerging today: "Sell the coun- 
Why not sell the air, the clouds, the 
great sea?" While these resources haven't 
actually been sold, industries and corpor- 
ations since the 19th century have behaved as 
if they owned them. They are free to pollute 
our streams and rivers , the air we breathe 
and the food we eat. We are free to ingest 
industrial filth, see our doctors more often, 
paint our houses more frequently because of 
corrosive air and rain, and develop all kinds 
of mental and physical diseases as a result. 



Recognizing that Tecumseh 's age-old senti- 
ments are once again a # rising, oil companies 
have now taken to producing beautiful prime - 
time television ads explaining that their 
main function is to clean the environment for 
seagulls, fish, flowers, and frolicking little 
girls. Not only do we finance their increased 
advertising when prices go up, but ironically, 
all these costs (health, depreciation, etc.) 
are added to our Gross National Product! No 
wonder our GNP is always growing, and as 
Archie Bunker expressed it, "This country has 
the Grossest National Product in the world!" 
GNP statistics do not consider the increas- 
ing devaluation of our natural resources and 
health. So, since the real GNP of our "free 
enterprise" system seems to be faltering, the 
only way for faster growth is through great- 
er depreciation of our natural resources and 
our bodies . 

We can no longer ignore the widsom of the 
Nigerian tribesman who said "conceive that 
the land belongs to a vast family of which 
many are dead, few are living, and countless 
members are still unborn." 

It's your choice: will you continue to 
pay these externalities with your body and 
the bodies of people you love, or will you 
work to end the attitudes which make excess 
production unnecessary and, more immediately, 
to make those who waste our air and water pay 
for what they use and for cleaning it up? 



Knocking Out Bugs 
With Natural Sprays 

by Mick and Lini Wheelock 

Modern organic gardeners face a peculiar 
doublebind today. When they begin establish^ 
ing a garden they seldom have access to vir- 
gin soil, and the task which usually lies 
before them is nothing short of becoming an 
amateur soil scientist. 

This entails rebuilding a soil which has 
been mistreated, re-establishing a semblance 
of balance in the ecology of the area where 
you live, and introducing many new plants 
and beneficial insects . While it is true 
that healthy, organically grown plants are 
more able to repel diseases and insect pests, 
it is sometimes difficult to produce truly 
organic conditions in your soil for the 
first year or so. And here the doublebind 
begins: If you spray any form of pesticide 
on your plants and soil , you run the risk 
of seriously disrupting the conditions you 
are striving to establish, but at certain 
times, if you do not spray, there may be 
nothing left to harvest. 

The organic gardener is then faced with 
a difficult choice. While many of the 
famous authors of organic gardening publi- 
cations claim that they have never found it 
necessary to use pesticides of any sort, 
laymen occasionally find them absolutely 
indispensable during the transition period. 

According to the Indiana University 
Biology Department, the following insecti- 
cides can be used with relative safety in 
the environment: Antrol Violet and House 
Plant Insecticide Bomb, Black Flag Ant and 
Roach Killer, d-Con Double Action Ant-Roach 
Killer and Repellant, d-Con House and Garden 
Spray, Flea Collars, Formaldehyde Fumes, 
Green Thumb Insecticide Spray, Hartz Moun-

Spray, Raid Rose and Flower Spray, Real Kill 
Household Spray, Roaches' Last Meal, Sal Soda, 
Scope Insecticide Granules, Sears Sevin, Ser- 
geant's Flea and Tick Powder, Sergeant's Flea 
and Tick Spray, Shell No-Pest Strip (do not 
use in any closed room), Spectracid, and 
Terra Roach Killer. The words "relatively 
safe" mean that the list of above substances 
are still highly toxic and many readers will 
undoubtedly be opposed to using them. 

Commerical preparations which contain any 
of the following should be avoided: Aldrin, 
BHC, Chlordane, DDD, DDE, DDT, Dieldrin, 
Endrin, Heptachler, Heptachler epoxide, Hex-

The shotgun approach to insect control 
leaves much to be desired, so why not try 
using pyrethrum spray? Also known as Dal- 
matian Powder or Persian Insect Powder, the 
spray is made from the pulverized flowers of 
the pyrethrum plant, a relative of the chry- 
santhemum. 

In order to work with optimum effective- 
ness , pyrethrum flowers should be freshly 
ground. This creates problems, as these 
plants are not generally available, and 
often the gardener finds that he must cul- 
tivate his or her own. 

When a bug comes in contact with pyre- 
thrum, it is not killed but passes out in- 
stead, and if pyrethrum is used to repel 
houseflies they must be swept up and de- 
stroyed before they regain consciousness. 

Pyrethrum presents no dangers to higher 
animals or people, although certain in- 
dividuals may have severe allergic reactions 
to it. For this reason, it should be treat- 
ed as if it were a highly toxic spray. 

You can make a highly effective pyre- 
thrum spray by mixing one teaspoon of fresh 
pyrethrum powder with two quarts of hot 
water, then adding a little soft soap to 
thicken the mixture. Let the concoction 
age for a day or so, re -mix it, and then 
spray a fine mist on your plants as needed. 

Another natural spray which you can pur- 
chase is rotenone. Also known as derris, a 
substance is found in several tropical plants. 
Although it is a mild stomach poison, it is 
usually not dangerous to animals or people. 
It may be purchased in pure form only from 
pet shops or veterinarians , and is often com- 
bined with other synthetic and highly toxic 
posions, so watch for this when purchasing 
it. 

Of all the native American plants, only 
the Devil's shoestring ( Tephresia virgini - 
ana) contains rotenone. Devil's shoestring 
grows only in the eastern and southern states . 

Rotenone can be used with relative safety 
on all plants and bushes. It kills a vast 
variety of insects, and may also be used to 
eradicate certain varieties of external para- 
sites on domestic animals as well. Its re- 
sidual effects are minimal and it must be 
re-applied at 48 -hour. intervals. This is 
highly advantageous , for ripening crops 
can be sprayed up until harvest time. 

Rotenone is almost the ideal spray- -if 
there is such a thing! -- as it is very 
deadly to insect but harmless to animals. In 
various areas of the world it is used as a 
fish poison, and for this reason, it should 
be kept out of water systems. 

What are the disadvantages of using these 
natural sprays? Mainly that they kill Loth 
the harmful and the beneficial insects . They 
are dangerous, as they disrupt the delicate 
ecology of your plants and soil, and in cer- 
tain cases, they may even enter the soil and 
kill the valuable earthworms as well. Al- 
though these substances can be used as a 
last resort , it is undoubtedly preferable 
to stick with natural, non-toxic insect 
eradication programs .

BUILD BEACHES WITH BOTTLES 

(AFS) A Rutgers University professor 
concerned with erosion of shorelines has a 
unique idea which would also cut into the 
solid waste problem. Dr. Michael D. Piburn 
suggests that crushed glass could be used 
to stabilize beaches. 

In his recent article in Natural History 
Magazine , he points out that present ettorts 
to combat erosion involve removing sand 
from bays behind barrier islands in order to 
refill beach areas. Naturally, this proce- 
dure endangers a wide variety of animal and 
marine life because these areas are the 
breeding grounds for clams, crabs , some of 
the flounders , and various kinds of water- 
fowl. 

Most available sand is too fine in tex- 
ture to become a stable component, so it is 
soon washed away and the beach again needs 
to be reinforced. The advantage of "arti- 
fical sand" is that it can be crushed into 
any size range. The glass fragments, says 
Dr. Pibum, "would be quickly rounded in 
the surf, so that they would present no 
danger to people on the beach." He believes 
the coarseness of the pulverized glass might 
lead to greater beach stability. 

Comparing costs of dredging natural sand 
from bay area to the cost of processing and 
transporting the "glass sand," the professor 
states the process is economically feasible, 
and- -beyond economics- -it woul4 save the 
valuable inshore water tributaries for wild- 
life. 

We are reaching the point where the only 
place left to discharge waste is in the 
ocean, so recovery becomes absolutely es- 
sential. If we can dispose of part of our 
annual 15 million tons of waste glass, and 
at the same time protect both our shore- 
line communities and our wildlife, Dr. 
Piburn 's plan certainly deserves serious 
consideration.

Coming Down 
on the Press 

by Michael Blake 



On May 10, 1972, Los Angeles Free Press 
reporter Ron Ridenour grabbed his camera, 
notepad and press card and dashed off to 
cover the anti-war action at Richard Nixon's 
Los Angeles headquarters. Dozens of other 
media men also went, and after about 1,500 
arrests they sauntered back to offices all 
over the city to file their stories. Ron 
Ridenour, however, went straight to jail, 
and if there was ever any hope that alter- 
native media outlets were making progress 
in their battle for equal treatment --well, 
forget. it . 

The problem's an old one for editors and 
staff of newspapers and magazines that have 
little money, little political clout or 
neither. For years college papers have 
tried fruitlessly to obtain police press - 



veteran, saw Ridenour clicking away and 
ordered a uniformed officer to arrest him. 
Ridenour asked his captor what the charge 
was and got an "I don't know" as he was 
being whisked to the station. The next 
morning, his camera and freshly exposed 
film in hand, his $500 bail made, Ride- 
nour walked out of the station to pre- 
pare for trial on charges of unlawful 
assembly and failure to disperse- -alleged 
violations which lift few eyebrows after 
so many years of wholesale use by law en- 
forcers . 

The Freedom of Information subcomit- 
tee of the California Radio and Tele- 
vision News Association volunteered to 
testify in Ridenour 's behalf, and Art 
Kevin of the Radio and Television News- 
casters of American said, in a statement 
to the press, that Ridenour 's arrest and 
trial amounted to nothing more than an 
attempt by law enforcement to control the 
communications media. 

None of the official condemnations 
seemed to help; Ridenour went on trial as 
scheduled. The police lobbied for addition- 
al charges of resisting arrest and striking 
a police officer, but the prosecution de- 
clined. The charge of failure to disperse 
was quickly dropped. After a few hours of 
deliberation, the jury ended the five-day 
trial by returning a verdict of guilty on 
the solitary misdemeanor violation- -unlaw- 
ful assembly. The verdict came despite the 
testimony of Dwayne Johnson, an editor of 
the Los Angeles Times and current president 
of the Southern California chapter of the 
journalism fraternity, Sigma Delta Chi. 
Johnson said that Ridenour 's conduct at the 
demonstration was consistent with his re- 
sponsibilities as a reporter. 

In spite of a relatively long trial and 
usual legal fees, Ridenour had cause to 
take heart. All the charges save one had 
been dropped and his case had focused atten- 
tion on one of the underground press ' big- 
gest headaches. 

Then, on September 19, Judge Armand 
Arabian leaned over his bench and dropped 
a bomb: he sentenced Ridenour to one year 
in the L.A. county jail --one year for un- 
lawful assembly. More than one former 
inmate has said that county jail, in Los 
Angeles, makes one pine for prison. 

In a superbly documented and research- 
ed book titled Press Freedoms 'Jnder Pres- 
sure , Fred P. Graham goes a long way to 
explain why Ron Ridenour and others like 
him have been sentenced, why underground 
offices are harassed, and why college 
papers can't get police credentials: 

"At the local level," Graham says, 
"law enforcement officials have used their 
authority against the underground press. 
They have never used it against the estab- 
lished press. They seem to assume that 
underground publications forfeit some 
degree of their protection under the First 
Amendment when they violate public stand- 
ards of taste or morality or have commented 
about the police. As a result, a double 
standard for treatment of the underground 
and the established press has developed- -a 
double standard that implies unequal treat- 
ment under the law." 

If anything can be learned from the 

problems which Ron Ridenour and the Los 

Angeles Free Press now face, it is that the 
double standard is far from being vanquished. 
On the contrary, if Ridenour is any. example 
at all, those who cast their lot with al- 
ternative media would do well to brace for 
even greater trials and tribulations to come. 



cardSj undergrounds have lived with wire-

taps and intermittent raiding, and news 
services have been plagued with a lack of 
encouragement or cooperation from establish- 
ed newsgatherers . And through the length 
and breadth of the country case after case 
crops up involving a reporter who got ar- 
rested (or worse) trying to do his or her 
job. 

Ridenour is a classic example of the 
above but the really shocking aspect of 
his particular case is the penalty imposed. 
It leaves little doubt that the war on dis- 
sent which has raged for nearly a decade 
is escalating like never before. In brief, 
Ridenour's case goes like this :

Dateline: CENTENARY- 



Scouting Report (II) 



by Tom Marshall 



Editor's note: This is the second in a 
four-part series of columns that will 
examine, position by position, the Cen- 
tenary varsity basketball outlook for the 
upcoming 1972-73 season. 

THE BIG MEN 

Tuesday, October 31- -exactly four weeks 
before Centenary's season basketball opener 
against Southwestern Texas --Larry Little sat 
in his Gold Dome office and surveyed the 
prospects for the center position. We dis- 
cussed Centenary's "big men," the people 
that basketball teams are made of. 

It used to be that when you talked about 
the "big man" at Centenary, you were refer- 
ring to somebody who was, say, six-foot-seven 
and more suited to popping buckets from the 
corner than matching up against men four or 
five inches taller. But this year things will 
be different. This year, the center corps is 
led by somebody who can look eye-to-eye with 
all the other big centers , and in many cases 
will stand head -and -shoulders above his 
opponents. The man is Robert Parish, a seven- 
footer out of Shreveport-Woodlawn, and he's 
the one we talked about first. 

Little starts off, "As far as the tools 
Robert had when he came out of high school , 
there was no question about whether or not 
lie would be able to make it in college. The 
only question was whether he could take the 
pace up and down the floor, and whether he 
could leam to both take and dish out the 
physical contact that comes with college 
ball. But one of the most satisfying things 
we have seen since he has been here is his 
attitude towards playing the game and his 
attitude towards taking coaching." 

The coach leaves little doubt as to what 
he feels that Robert can do for Centenary's 
basketball chances. "He'll give us the tre- 
mendous help that we've needed on the boards, 
and his potential as a defensive intimidator 
will be more valuable to us than his offen- 
sive accomplisliments." 

Does Robert play basketball like a col- 
lege freshman? "No ," is Little's quick an- 
swer, "he doesn't play 
ball like any college 
freshman I 've ever been 
associated with. But 
I hope our fans - -students , 
faculty and townspeople 
alike- -will understand 
that the learning pro- 
cess for Robert, like 
any college freshman, is 
going to take a little 
while. He'll be playing 
against varsity centers 
in their second and third 
BIG BOB years of competition. 
That's 60 or more college games." 

Little feels that Robert needs to improve 
mainly on certain offensive and rebounding 
aspects of his game. "He has to work on, for 
example, clearing the rebound off and releas- 
ing in a hurry. And to do that, he'll have to 
improve his positioning on rebounds; in high 
school there was no one to challenge him in 
that respect. The most important change of- 
fensively is that he needs to break the habit 
of bringing the ball down low and turning to 
drive --he needs to learn to either quickly 
get the shot off or throw the ball back out- 
side." 

SKEETER. JOHN & CAL 

The other three men who the fans might 
see in the center spot are seniors James 
"Skeeter" Home (6-7, Albany, N.Y.) ana 
John Murphy (6-7, Shreveport -Fair Park) and 
freshman Cal Smith (6-7, Normal, 111.). 

Of Home, Little allows, "He was slated 
to see more play at forward than center this 
year, but now he is definitely slated for 
offensive center backup. In fact, I know 
there will be some times when the offense 
will go better with Skeeter in there than 
with Robert. He strong on the boards --but 
sometimes that comes in spurts. And in our 
passing game (offense), Skeeter can go at 
either forward or a post." 

The other senior pivotman is John Murphy. 
'His most important potential is as a rebound- 
er and to help shut off the opposing center." 
John is not only tall (6-7), but big (240 
pounds) , and Little sees that as an aid in 




providing "some additional necessary bulk on 
the boards." But sometimes that extra size 
can hurt, too. "He's going to have to work 
hard to improve his quickness," says Little. 
"John has been given the opportunity in prac- 
tice to compete for some playing time at cen- 
ter," the coadi points out, and adds quite 
seriously, "John is a real good kid and we 1 ve 
been very glad to have him over the last four 
years." 




JANES "SKEETER" HORNE 

. . . ready for action. 

The other man who might possibly see some 
action at the center spot this season is fresh- 
man Cal Smith. "Cal is a much changed player 
over what he was a year ago when we watched 
him in high school ; agressiveness was not one 
of his main attributes. But he has worked hard 
over the summer and changed from strictly an 
outside player to an outside- inside threat. 
He's a lot like a freshman, though, in that 
one day lie does some things great, and another 
he does those same things poorly. How much, 
if any, playing time he gets will depend on 
his development. At this point, he will have 
to improve a little more in all phases." 

OFFENSE? OPPONENT'S CHOICE 

As far as gearing the offense to the big 
man, Little sees the Gents as having two basic 
options to choose from- -with the selection 
depending on the opposition. "If our oppo- 
nent has good size but not a lot of quick- 
ness, we'll probably use our passing game 
and try to draw them away from the basket. 
On the other hand, if they're smaller and 
quicker, we'll go to our stack alignment 
and work inside to the big men." 

Little summed it all up with this over- 
all evaluation of the center position: 
"Robert's ability to improve early in the 
season could help make the ball club better 
overall. However, that is not to say that 
the center will be determining factor in 
our ball club's success. If Robert was to 
have trouble adjusting- -say if he was in foul 
trouble a lot --then the center position would 
be just average. But I feel like we'll be in 
as good a shape as most of our opponents. 
The caliber of our depth will improve as the 
season progresses. Overall, I would say that 
we will be fairly strong at centei--much the 
same as the guards. However, it will be the 
least experienced position- -I can't call it 
the weakest because of Robert's potential. 
One weakness- -if we are going to term any- 
thing a 'weakness '- -is the playing time at 
center." 

Time? Four weeks and counting. . .

RECIPES FOR DISASTER 
by Don Akchin 

After one month of serious cooking I 
am responsible for only two minor dis- 
asters and one major apocalyptic cata- 
strophe. Not bad for a beginner, eh? 

My recipes for these debacles are 
printed below as a public service. 
Rice Lice Twice 
(a minor disaster) 

Ingredients : 

2 boxes of Chicken Flavour Rice-A- 
Roni, margarine. 

Directions: 

Before roommate comes home, melt two 
tablespoons of margarine in a frying pan. 
Open a box of Chicken Flavour Rice-A- 
Roni and pour the rice-vermicelli mix- 
ture into the pan. Gasp. Gasp. Observe 
dozens of tiny creepy-crawlies scrambling 
through the middle of the rice-vermicelli 
mixture, and also over left tackle. Re- 
move pan from heat. With a spoon, gently 
fling entire contents of pan into gar- 
bage can. 

Melt two more tablespoons of margarine 
in the same pan. Open a second box of 
Chicken Flavour Rice-A-Roni. Pour the 
rice-vermicelli mixture into the pan. 
Gasp. Cry out in anguish. Curse. Ob- 
serve one big creepy-crawly resting atop 
the rice-vermicelli mixture. 

Peak out kitchen door to be sure no 
one is watching. When the coast is clear, 
fork the creepy-crawly and gently fling 
him into the garbage. Leave the rice- 
vermicelli mixture in the pan. Consider 
it seasoned and proceed according to 
directions printed on the box.

^SweetStew^ 
(a minor disaster) 

Ingredients : 

One can of beef stew 

one bottle of Boones Farm Apple Wine. 

Assorted spices and fresh vegetables. 

One trusted cookbook. 

Directions : 

Following directions in a trusted 
cookbook, heat a can of beef stew and 
doctor it with fresh vegetables and 
exotic spices. Note trusted cookbook's 
recommendation of cinnamon, cloves, pep- 
per and cheap red wine to interact to- 
gether and form remarkable taste combi- 
nations. Season liberally with pepper, 
cinnamon, cloves and, in place of gen- 
uine red wine, two cups of good old 
Boones Farm Apple Wine. Simmer for 30 
minutes . 

Serve hot over fresh bread. Observe 
quizzical expression on roommate's face 
as he tastes stew. Wince as roommate 
suggests maybe you used sugar by mistake 
in place of salt. Taste stew. Wince. 
Squirm. Consider it experience and next 
time buy a genuine cheap red wine. 
Lightning Chicken 
(a major apocalytpic castrophe) 

Ingredients : 

One trusted cookbook. 

One whole frying chicken. 

Oil and assorted spices. 

One cantankerous gas ovenbmiler. 

Directions: 

Prepare to broil chicken, following 
directions in cookbook. Rub each chic- 
ken part with oil, then with assorted 
spices. Light cantankerous gas oven- 
brioler, setting control knob on 'B' 
for broil, noting that cookbook insists 
this chicken is going to be broiled, not 
baked. Place chicken parts in broiler 
and close door. 

Wait five minutes. Inspect chicken. 
Observe flames from broiler are searing 
chicken a light black. Close broiier 
door. Pray for chicxen. Reopen door. 
Gasp. Observe the chicken is on fire. 
With fork, beat the flames. When chicken 



is dark black, flat and no longer burning, 
turn the pieces over to sear on the other 
side. Close door. Pray for chicken. 

Open door. Observe the highly flam- 
mable chicken has done it again and the 
flames are raging out of control. With 
spatula, dish towel and possibly a water 
pistol, extinguish flames. Remove chic- 
ken from broiler. Serve with extra nap- 
kins and large water pitcher. Refuse 
all flattery on quality of chicken's 
subtle "hickory -smoked charcoal flavor." 
Consider it a job well-done and pray for 
>rour roommate. ,

There's One Thing for 
Sure about Marijuana 

by Wellborn Jack, Jr. 

An undesirable effect of the current 
public debate over marijuana is the ob- 
scuring of the reality of the serious 
legal consequences presently associated 
with its use . Regardless of what the 
physiological and psychological conse- 
quences of marijuana use may be, the 
legal consequences are quite certain. 
Marijuana can get you busted, and get- 
ting busted is bad. 

It is still against the law of the 
State of Louisiana to possess, use, give, 
receive, buy or sell even the most minute 
quantity of marijuana. It is also il- 
legal to attempt to do these things or 
aid others to do these things. This law 
is still being enforced as diligently as

It was a time for joy and a time for reflection. Last Friday Satur- 
day and Sunday were marked by the co- celeb rat ion of Centenary's annual 
High School Weekend and a Student Senate -sponsored All-Campus^Wee3 
ine result, by any measure, was an overwhelming success

gess (A Clockwork Orange, M/F, 15 1/2 others) spoke before a packed Forums

message Burgess warned that, "W e must not allow ou rselves to be regarded

power, and the state is aware of growing population and the need to sim- 
plify its view of man.... We are ripe to be conditioned; we are ready to be 
turned into clockwork oranges." y 

Arguing against the conditioning techniques of B. F. Skinner and 
other popular psychologists, Burgess called for retention of m^n's free- 
dom to choose between good and evil. "We are human beings because wc are

songs, including among others "Sad Movies Make Me Cry "'"Water-

Loudermilk did not rest in his past hits, but rather in his 
easy rapport with a youthful audience (which had proved to be 
quite hard to please during the All -Campus Review) due to his 
compelling presentation mixing backwoods roots, intense under- 
statement, and high level of talent and technical ability He 
left the stage with students on their feet shouting, "More-

shouts . 

For its part, Centenary's student body responded to the 
occasion of High School Day with high spirits and evident cour- 
tesy, showing the high schoolers --prospective freshmen, of 
course, a thought never far from anyone's mind- -a very good

Committee Views 
Abortion, Honor Court 

CONGLOMERATE advertising and editorial 
policy, next year's Gent 1 cinan 1 y Speak i ng , and 
the honor court were discussed Tuesday at the 
Committee on Student Life meeting in the 
Smith Bui lding. 

Dr. Eergal Gallagher, chairman of the pub- 
lications sub -committee, made a preliminary 
report on the sub -commit tec's study of the 
probable effects ol abortion referral adver- 
tising on Centenary and its surrounding com- 
munity. According to the report, Centenary 
Public Information Mi rector Mauri e U'avne and 
CONGLOMERATE Editor lay lor CalTcry have visit- 
ed with a Shrevcport .Journa l stai f member 
and a Catholic priest, both of them CONGLOM- 
ERATE readers, to determine their opinions on 
the problem. Hie issue revolves around the 
fact that abortion, a highly controversial 
medical act which has been approved and con- 
demned by large groups of clergyman and lax- 
men, arouses very vocal responses in Shrcve- 
po rt . 

Mean Eddy Miller, reporting for the Gentle- 
m anly S peaking sub -conn it tee, said that~fie^ 
would "no distributing speculative position 
papers to one hundred o\ the college's "-ou- 
st ituents" i board, students, faculty, alumni) 
soon, and will have a report on the results 
within throe weeks .

Court will be complete! soon, with preliminary 
reports indicating only slight changes in the 
past two years . 

fay lor CalTcry announced that CONGLOMERATE 
staff positions hill be open for next semester, 
and that applications, to be picked up at the 
CONGLOMERATE'S, Mauri e Wayne's, or Mr. Gallag- 
her's office, must be turned in to Mr. Gal- 
lagher. Ihe committee approved the constitu- 
tions of the Centenary 1'cnnis Association and 
the Junior Panhcllcjiic. 





What's your idea 
of true religion? 



Unitarianism is a way of life, life of 
vigorous thought, constructive activity, 
of generous service- -not a religion of 
inherited creeds, revered saints, or 
holy books . 

Unitarianism is not an easy religion. 
It demands that people think out their 
beliefs for themselves, and then live 
those beliefs. Ihc stress is placed 
upon living this life nobly and effec- 
tively rather than on the preparation 
for an after-existence. 

If you have given up "old time" reli- 
gion, Unitarianism has the answer for 
you.

THE CONGLOMERATE 



November 10, 197i 




EDITORIAL 

THE ELECTION 

To put it simply, Nixon forgot to put 
his coat on. He was reelected with the 
largest popular vote m history, but failed 
to carry with him on his coat-tails many 
Republican contenders and incumbents . 

The reason for the Republican failure 
to follow through with' their political 
swing becomes clear when one remembers 
that the Presidential choice was seen as 
a choice between two seedy undesirables . 
With no strong positive motivation to vote 
for a party leader, the electorate could 
not be expected to transfer any allegiances 
to the lower echelons . 

It's interesting to note that three 
former contestants for the same office in 
a not-very-distant past race, Edwin Edwards, 
Bennett Johnston, and David Treen, all have 
now been elevated to positions of incum- 
bency, where they'll quickly learn, no

To the Editor: 

I want to express a word of 'Thanks" 
to all students who volunteered to host a 
visiting High School Day student in a dorm

students were assigned no visitors and some 
woman students had more than anticipated, 
h'e appreciate your "flexibility." 

An e^rly appraisal of feed back on the

BESTSELLER REVIEWED 

lo the Lditor: 

In response to Mr. Daiell's recent review 
of Love Story , I would like to present another 
love story. This story is in book form and 
has been a best seller for many years. Quite 
a few movies have been made about it. Vet 
this love story is different because it gives 
•great hope to man. 

It is about a radical who put down hypo- 
crites and tried to charge many ideas of the 
church of his day. He taught love and never 
ceased to give it. Many things he did 
astounded the entire known world. 

He spoke about living life to its fullest, 
and he lived his to its fullest. Vet this 
great man of compassion was beaten by his 
fellow man until he was marred beyond recog- 
nition. They drove nails through his hands 
and feet. Thev pierced his side with a spear. 
They laughed and spat at him, and let 
hang naked on a cross until he died in shame. 

Horrible? Ves. Inhuman? Ves. How could 
id God allow such a thing to F.appen?

(Job: 










: 



bombed out. Hiey, in their stubbornness and 
seeming Intellectual ism, have rejected God's 
provision for life, and the result is the 
suffering, hatred, and death of I.ove Stoiy . 
Jesus, like Jennifer, died an early, un- 
natural, and unpleasant death. But through 
a miracle of God, Jesus took every wrong that 
you and I have ever committed and will ever 
commit, upon himself. .And with His Death, 
sin was conquered. However, unless we ac- 
cept this and take Christ into our hearts, 
God's provision lias no affect on us. 

It's like a Christmas gift. Hie package 
is there with a new sweater in it, but un- 
less you open the package and try the sweater 
on, it does you no good whatsoever. By the 
same token, we must accept God's gift and let 
Christ into our lives in order to have life. 
I'd like to close my review of this love 
storv with a quote from the Book. (Proverbs 
1:24-33 N.VSB) 

Because I called, and you refused; 
I st ret died out my hand, and no one 
paid attention; 
.And. you neglected all my counsel, 
And did not want my reproof; 
I will even laugh at your calamitv; 
I will mock when your dread comes,... 
'Then they will call on me, but I will 
not answer; 
They will seek me diligently, but they 

ill not find me, 
Because they hated knowledge, 
And did not choose the fear of the 

Lord . . . 
But he who listens to me shall live 

securely, 
And shal 1 be at ease from the dread 
of evil . 
God's provision is available to everyone 
through Christ. But if you reject that pro- 
vision, the problems of life are your own 
problems and, in many cases, your own fault. 
Fife is no bed of roses for anyone, but the 
Creator of life promises to help us and stay 
with us if we accept Him. 'Ihe choice is 
your own. 

This is the hope: the great difference 
in the two "love stories." J dies 
in the end of the story, leaving Oliver for 
eternity. Jesus died, but rose again and 
lives today to be forever with us if we ac- 
cept Him. lie can give you life, but should 
you choose to reject Him, don't blame God 
for the rest of your life.

UNDERSTANDING EACH OTHER 

To the lid i tor: 

I avail myself of the privilege of re- 
sponding to the letter of Mr. Jeff Daiell 
(CONGLOMERATE, November 3, \972) since in 
it he mentions one of mine (CONGLOMERATE, 
October 27, 1972). I am answering the 
letter in the hope that from these dis- 
cussions will come understanding of dif- 
ferent points of view, of different faiths, 
and of each other. 

Mr. Jeff Daiell begins his second para- 
graph with, "The creation story (assuming 
Dr. Pomeroy meant the Judeo -Christian 
creation story, and not the Buddist crea- 
tion story, the Zoroastrian creation story, 
etc., etc.)..." This suggests that Mr. 
Daiell was forced to "assume" which story 
I referred to because I had not made it 
clear. I wonder if in his reading and re- 
reading of my letter he overlooked again 
and again the fact that 1 referred to "the 
creation story of the Old Testament"? One 
need not "assume" that I referred to the 
Judeo-Christian story, for it is, in fact, 
that story which appears in the Old Testa- 
ment, not the others Mr. Daiell mentions. 

I did not "pontificate" that there is 
no answer to the source of evil, as Mr. 
Daiell wrongly accuses me of doing. No 
one who has read and reread the letter 
carefully could possibly believe that. At 
one point I stated, "We, limited, finite 
beings, can find no rational answer to the 
problem of evil;..." Again, "The relevant 
pmMem of evil for a Christian is not to 
explain the source of evil. We may play 
around with it, but find no meaningful 
answer." All Mr. Daiell needs to do to 
show that this understanding is not true 
is (1) give us the answer to the question 
of the source of evil and (2) show that 
his answer is meaningful (makes some dif- 
ference) , and/or is rational (a conclusion 
for which reasons are given). But to mis- 
quote me, distort my statement, and then, 
on the basis of his own invention, say that 
it, "is the remark of limited resources," 
does not further the cause of understanding 
or reason. To say that 1 "pontificate" 
does not clarify the issue, it only shows 
that Mr. Daiell knows the word, but not its 
meaning. 

Mr. Daiell 's remark concerning this in- 
vented quotation is that it is a remark 
"of limited resources" (sic). To further 
clarify the issue; my resources are limit- 
ed, not infinite. 

Perhaps Mr. Daiell and I disagree about 
what the Old Testament creation story "says" 
about evil because we are using the term 
"responsible" in two different ways. It 
appears to me that, in the story, there 
would have been no evil on the earth, or 
for man, if he had not committed that one 
misdeed. It appears to me that this is 
the understanding the biblical author 
wishes the reader to have. In this sense, 
then, man appears, in the story> as respon- 
sible for the evil he knows. Of course 
there are other interpretations which make 
God "responsible" as the ultimate source 
of evil, but I simply suggest that one 
read Genesis 3 to see if it is not clear 
that the author "says" that there is evil 
on the earth only as the consequence to 
man's "misdeed." In this sense only does 
the story make man "responsible." 

Mr. Daiell states, "Job's wife was in no 
way denied God;..." This is a difficult 
sentence for me to understand. If it were 
not for Mr. Daiell 's earlier remarks I would 
assume there was some error by the typist, 
but I cannot. My error was assuming that 
the reader would have some elementary know- 
ledge of the Job story. It appears that 
Mr. Daiell assumed that the word "deny" in 
this context meant to deny the existence 
of God, but no one with an understanding of 
the story would think that. True, Job's 
wife does not deny the existence of God, 
but she does recommend that Job curse (deny) 
God, and in so far as this is a serious re- 
commendation (in the story) it reflects, in 
some way, a denial of God. 

In conclusion, Mr. Daiell says that there 
is a rational answer to the existence of 
evil. By rational, I assume that he means 



there is an answer which is a conclusion for 
which reasons can be given. If Mr. Daiell 
docs not know the answer, I cannot under- 
stand how he knows that there is one, except 
in faith. I believe it is reasonable to say 
that if neither Mr. Daiell nor anyone else 
can give a rational answer to the problem of 
the source of evil, then I am reasonable in 
saying that there is no rational answer. 
That is, there is no rational answer out 
there somewhere beyond the mind of man which 
lie will discover by the use of courage, for- 
titude and intelligence. He may create a 
rational answer and then there will be one, 
but there is not one now. Now there are 
only the answers of faith. 

Mr. Daiell, if you will not tell me the 
rational answer to the problem of the source 
of evil, 1 am afraid that I am going to go 
on thinking that there is no rational answer 
NOW. 1 will continue to maintain that the 
real problem of evil is not to discover the 
source of evil, but the real problem is to 
learn how may we overcome it and destroy it. 

Webb Pomeroy 

ESKIMOS ARE IRRATIONAL 

To the Editor: 

I avail mayself of the privilege of re- 
sponding to tiie letter of Mr. Larry Wright 
(CONGIjO.MERATE, November 5, 1972), since the 
letter refers to a previous one of mine. 

"For I do not seek to understand in order 
to believe, but I believe in order to under- 
stand." From the time of the writing of this 
sentence by Anselm (1033-1109), knowledgeable 
men have known that faith (theory) preceeds 
reason. To deny that faith preceeds reasons, 
or to say that there can be reasoning with- 
out faith is simply to affirm that one has 
not seriously studied and understood lan- 
guage or philosophy. Mr. Wright's letter 
does, to some small extent, reflect reason- 
ing, but I will demonstrate below that his 
reasoning proceeds from statements of faith. 

I have some difficulty understanding all 
Mr. Wright's logical connections, but it 
seems to me that my letter somehow indicated 
to him that I did not believe that "man is 
the only reasoning animal." I do not under- 
stand how my letter would lead to such a 
conclusion, even though 1 do not believe 
the statement is true. Chimpanzees have, 
in laboratory experiments, stacked one box 
on top of another in order to obtain bananas 
high out of their reach. Psychologists say 
this reflects reasoning. Since Chimpanzees 
are not men, it is reasonable to believe 
that man is not the only reasoning animal. 
It is true that I do not believe that man 
is the only reasoning animal, but I cannot 
understand how one could know that if the 
only evidence he had was that I had not 
defined the term "evil" in a particular let- 
ter. 

In an attempt to put Mr. Wright's argu- 
ment into standard form we find the follow- 
ing: Mr. Wright says that my letter is a 
"case of point" relative to "millions oT 
people do not realize this" ("this" being 
that, "a human being's reason is the onlv 
means of survival, and to reject reason is 
to die," or, "...man is the only reasoning 
animal," to which sentence the "case in 
point" relates is not made clear in 
Wright's letter). To illustrate that my 
letter is a "case in point" "r. Wright says, 
"in his letter, Dr. Pomeroy failed to define 
evil." Now, if we put the arguments into 
standard form, supplying the suppressed 
premises , we get : 

"No people who fail to define evil 
are people who realize that a human 
being's reason is his only means 
of survival .... 
Dr. Pomeroy fails to define evil. 
Therefore: 

Dr. Pomeroy does not realize that a 
human being's reason is his only 
means of survival." 
Now let us do the other one . 

"No people who fail to define evil 
are people who realize that man is 
the only reasoning animal. 
Dr. Pomeroy fails to define evil. 
Therefore: 

Dr. Pomeroy does not realize that man 
is the only reasoning animal. 
I ask the reader, do Mr. Wright's argu- 
ments, when exposed to the full light of 
logical analysis, reflect his life of 'full, 
conscious, objective reason'? 

I will now demonstrate that Mr. Wright's 
"understanding" of man proceeds from faith, 
not reason. He states, "Good is that which 



tends to sustain life and evil is that which 
tends to harm life." lhese are Mr. Wright's 
definitions of good and evil, lhey suggest 
that life is good, for if it were evil, how 
could something that sustains an evil be 
good? However, "life is good," is a state- 
ment of faith. Mr. Wright, I think, is 
guilty of implying an irrational, illogical 
statement of faith. If I am not correct in 
this, will someone write out a syllogism in 
which the statement, "life is good," is the 
conclusion and neither premise is a state- 
ment of faith? I agree that the statement, 
"life is good," is true, but I recognize it 
as a faith statement, and I do not fool my- 
self into thinking that I am being logical 
or reasonable when I make it. 

Is Mr. Wright's letter one which reflects 
living by "full, conscious, objective reason?" 
It states, "Man has no fangs, claws, pro- 
tective coloration, or other equipment for 
survival." Has not man hands , fingers , eyes, 
ears, hair, feet, toes, thumbs, teeth, legs, 
and arms, all excellent equipment for sur- 
vival? What kind of "life of reason" could 
possibly overlook these man-els? Mr. Wright's 
sentence reads as if he has just discovered 
Ayn Rand, and has forthwith stopped thinking. 

,r l)r. Pomeroy 's letter insults anyone who 
functions as a rational human being...," is 
another statement from Mr. Wright's letter. 
I can produce upon demand one who functions 
as a rational human being who was not insult- 
ed by my letter. Is this another reflection 
of the heights to which Mr. Wright's logic 
will take us, that is, to publishing state- 
ments so blatantly false that it takes only 
a couple of minutes to provide evidence to 
refute them? 

Mr. Wright suggests that my not defining 
evil is somehow related to finding no mean- 
ingful answer to evil in this sentence, "In 
his letter Dr. Pomeroy failed to define 
evil. ('We may play around with it, but 
find no meaningful answer.')" My letter 
clearly states that we may find no meaning- 
ful answer to the source of evil, not that 
we cannot define tiie term. Of course I can 
define "e\il," as many persons have. But a 
definition of "evil" had no logical or rat- 
ional relationship to my letter, as all 
logical and rational persons, except Mr. 
Wright, could see easily and clearly. How- 
ever, even if I could not have defined the 
term, I could have looked up a definition 
in the dictionary if it had been logically 
relevant. Any sophomore logician, even 
the most unreasonable, can easily see that 
to define the term "evil" is not to answer 
the problem -of its source. Further, what 
kind of logic is it that would, after noting 
that I did not define "evil," use it as a 
"case in point" to show that 1 did not 
believe that "man is the only reasoning 
animal" (a statement proved false by scien- 
tific research)? How does Mr. Wright fur- 
ther the cause of reason by such blatant 
distortion and scorn of logic'.' 

"If any ideal is worth dreaming of, it 
is worth trying to achieve." How true! 
But it is another of Mr. Wright's illogical 
faith statements, unprovable unless with 
the use of other sracements of faith. I as- 
sume that since Mr. Wright could find no- 
thing in my letter whidi he could attack 
with honesty and reason, he distorted it 
beyond recognition by attempting to show 
that 1 did not believe that man is the only 
reasoning animal because I had "failed" to 
define the term "evil." The problem of 
defining evil never entered into the argu- 
ment of my letter by him, I assume it was 
done so he could show the reader what it 
means to live the life of "full, conscious, 
objective reason." Does not reason itself 
teach us that it is not right to distort a 
man's work and then attack the distortion 
as if were the man's true work? If reason 
cannot, then faith can. 

Well, just to prove I can do it: "Evil is 
being bom irrational and having to go to 
college and study in order to become rational." 
That proves that Eskimos are irrational and 
can't define evil, because there aren't any 
Eskimos at Centenary', and blubber is evil, 
because it's not good.

THE CONGLOMERATE 



November 10, 1972 



Hello, I'm a Truck! 

by Cherry Payne 

The truck almost has become an .American institution, immortalized over and over again 
bv such expressions as "Keep on Truckin'," 'Trucking on down the road," and even by a song 
entitled "Hello, I'm A Truck." There's no denying it--trucks are cool. Truckers are even 
cooler. Hundreds of people are turning to the trucking industry for careers --people with 
college educations, adventuresome spirits 
and insatiable desires to travel. 

But, for most of us, trucking is simply 
not very realistic (yes, even some of us 
must admit that there is some discrimination 
in this industry because ol sex. . .) . Mean- 
while, we attempt to console ourselves by- 
looking at trucks, wearing t-shirts with 
trucks on them, talking about trucks and per- 
haps best of all , talking to and/or looking 
at truckers. Trucking west a few miles from 
Shreveport on 1-20, it is almost impossible 
to miss Kelly's Truck Stop, officially known 
as "Kelly's Truck Terminal." There, one 
finds an abundance of trucks, scales, truck- 
ers, good food and other related trucker 
items. 

To put it simply, Kelly's is GREAT (es- 
pecially the blueberry pancakes). The cuisine 
(or grub) at the restaurant is excellent, 
reasonably priced and well worth the trip. 
Yet , the food is only one aspect of many that 
is of mote than passing interest to any as- 
piring sociologist (or anyone else). 

Die variety of people who frequent Kelly's 
is simply incredible. Donny Kelly, the son 
of D.A. Kelly, is the second man in the 
operation and co-owner of the business. I 
asked Donny what kind of people frequent 
Kelly's, and he said, "We get the best in the 
business. All the way from people like you 
(?) to rednecks." 

Donny is the third generation of truckers 
in his family and it was only after speaking 
with him and taking a tour of the entire plant 
that I realized the enormity of the operation. 
Kelly's is a member of NATSO (National Truck 
Stop Association) which is comparable to the 
AAA. Kelly's caters to the truckers first 
and the local customers and tourists only 
second. As Donny puts it, "Drivers are kings 
of the road." Truckers, Donny noted, are on 
a very tight time schedule and this is why 
there is a separate area in the restaurant 
for professional drivers they get served first, 





and rightfully so. 

Kelly's is a "million-dollar operation" 
and is known all over the United States by 
professional drivers as one of the best stops 
in the country. The facilities are amazing. 
There are 22 rooms for truckers to sleep in, 
with a hundred-room "Wheelin' Inn" now being 
constructed. All of the rooms have such lux- 




uries as color televisions and private baths , 
with just showers available for both men and 
women truckers (Donny noted that 150-175 
showers are taken daily) and a barber shop, 
a trucker's stcre and a gift shop. 

For the trucks Kelly's provides fuel (Donny 
is quite proud of the fact that his fueling 
bays are staffed exclusively by women and that 
they are doing better jobs than men in the 
same capacity). About 1,000 gallons are 
pumped in a 24 hour period, and they project 
over" 1,000,000 gallons next year. A one-hun- 
dred mile road and tire service is provided, 
a dispatch service, wet and dry ice for fresh 
products being hauled, a service department 

which will wash the trucks and do necessary 
maintenance work such as change the oil, 
etc., and a truck care center which can 
do any kind of repair job (even to a complete 
overhaul) . Donny employs over 160 people 
just to maintain this operation. 

Kelly's is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a 
week. It is worth a trip out there just to 
see the trucking industry at work, for, as 
Donny noted, the trucking industry is the 
largest in the United States. They are glad 
to have you out there, and if the food doesn't 
lure you, the variety of people should. Be- 
sides, it's worth it just to hear "Hello, I'm 
a Truck" on the juke box.

Marijuana 

ever. Jail is still a bad place to be. 
People are still going to jail. 

lliat highly respectable and impeccably cre- 
dentialed authorities can now be found on all 
sides of the ma-ijuana question doesn't chan- 
ge the law. , The following sequence of unplea- 
sant consequences still await those who choose 
to mess around with marijuana and happen to 
get caught . 

Arrest. This can occur anywhere and any- 
time"! IT can be with or without a warrant. 
It may be based upon a police officer's act- 
ual observation, his reasonable belief, or 
information given to him by an informant. It 
is a relatively simple and usually humiliating 
matter. You are taken into custody and treat- 
ed like the criminal that you are. You do 
what the arresting officer says, or else. 
You are searched. You may or may not be hand- 
cuffed. You are transported by police car 
or paddy-wagon to the City Police Station. 

Booking, mugging, and printing . At the 
police station your name and the offense with 
which you are charged are duly recorded in a 
large book open to public inspection and per- 
used daily by the press and other media. 
There is no way to keep people from knowing. 
Your name will be in the newspaper. You are 
then taken upstairs and mugged and printed. 
Your picture, fingerprints, and the fact of 
your arrest are forthwith sent to the Louis i- 

State Police and the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation, from whence they will follow 
you the rest of your life, jeopardizing your 
chances of a job, the school of your choice, 
and even membership in numerous organizations. 
You now have an arrest record, whether you 
are subsequently found Innocent or guilty. 

City Jail - Parish Jail . You are then 
given your jail clothes, white coveralls and 
tennis shoes, which may or may not fit. Your 
own clothes are either stored for you or sent 
to the lab to be examined for traces of mari- 
juana. You nay be kept in this jail for 
some while and questioned by the detective 
department if it has not yet completed its 
Investigation or nearly as bad, ignored. You 
will not get out on bond from the city jail. 
lo get out on bond you have to be transferred 
physically to the Parish jail where the same 
procedure is repeated. 

Bond . nd has to be specially set 
ore is no schedule of bonds 
like thei the case of minor offenses. 

i bond for Possession of Marijuana will 
pre 10.00. For Distribution, 

around $5,0: lo make this bond, your 
p.ircnts , friends, or relatives can either 
post this cash or property with tl 
Sheriff or vou can hire a bondsman to do it 
for you the amount of the 

bond, 'ion don't get back what you pay to 
the bondsman. If you can't make bond, you 
stay in jail until trial. 

Before- fou go to court. While vou are 



out on bond, it you were able to make bond, 
a lot of people ask you a lot of embarr. 
ing questions. You can reply to these ques- 
tions by lying, bragging, telling the truth, 
or being Silent. No matter what you 
or don't say, it is a frightfully embarras- 
sing thing. You can also hire an attorney. 
If you're charged with mere Possession of 
Marijuana and cannot afford to hire an at- 
torney, you will just have to do without, 
because the law does not require that one 
be appointed for you. 

Arraignment . This is your first ap- 
pearance in court. You wait your tum in 
company of a host of others charged with 
all manner of criminal offenses. Finally, 
your tum comes. You stand before the jud- 
ge. The charges are read. You then plead 
guilty or not guilty. If you plead guilty, 
sentencing will follow shortly. If you 
plead not-.guilty, your case will be set 
for trial or time will be allowed for 
the filing of preliminary motions. 

Preliminary Motions . The Constitution 
of the United states guarantees to you cer- 
tain procedural rights. If you feel that 
any of these rights have been violated in 
the course of the proceedings, you can 
urge this violation in your defense by 
of preliminary motion prior to trial. Pro- 
fessional police officers are very careful 
not to violate any of these rights. 
have plenty of professional police officers 
in Caddo in consequence of which 
preliminary motions are seldom effective 

Trial . You are not entitled to a jury 
trial for the offense of Possession of Mari- 



juana. In most instances, it is a relative- 
ly simple matter for the State to make 
positive identification of the substance 
found in your possession and to offer the 
testimony of one or more credible witnesses 
that it was in fact found in your possession. 
Although police officers and narcotics agents 
do make mistakes, such mistakes are excep- 
tion rather than the rule. 

Sentencing . This may or may not follow 
immediately upon your conviction or plea 
of guilty. The judge has a great deal of 
discretion within the limits set out by the 
law. He may request a Pre-sentence Inves- 
tigation made by a special state agency into 
your background. This generally takes a 
couple of weeks. If you are convicted of 
Distribution, you stay in jail during this 
investigation. Maximum sentence for Posses- 
sion is six months in the Parish Jail. For 



Distribution, the maximum sentence is ten 
years in the State Penitentiary. Giving one 
marijuana cigarette to a friend is sufficient 
criminal conduct to constitute the offense of 
Distribution.

THE CONGLOMERATE 



November 10, 1972 



Grandpa Jones and a Winnebago 
in Eureka Springs, Ark. 



by John Wafer 



Ride into Eureka Springs, Arkansas, on 
Route 23 from the south and, even before 
coming to the marker announcing: Eureka 
Springs, pop. 1683, you are accosted by this 
gigantic billboard, done in basic blue, which 
proclaims that the quaint Ozark village which 
you are about to enter is the one and only 
home of a statue, subject -Jesus, which stands 
over SEVEN STORIES HIGH AND HAS AN ARMSP.VO 
OF SIXTY FEET! And to go along with this 
super statue, in what must be the package 
deal of the decade, at least in Eureka 
Springs, you might witness the world-famous 
PASSION PLAY, done live under the stars on 
a mountain with the unlikely name of Mount 
Oberammergau, for a small fee. Seven stories, 
imagine that. 

Fortunately, Eureka Springs is not com- 
pletely overshadowed by this mammoth icon, 
either physically or in spirit, although it 
is sometimes difficult to maneuver around 
the bus parked on the town's only street 
while the pilgrims clammer aboard to be cart- 
ed off to Mt. Oberammergau and the stars. 
The village has seen tourists before; it was, 
in fact, founded on the tourist business some 
years afro when the springs in the area were 
running freely, beckoning the tired in body 
to come soak their arthritic bones in the 
healing waters. The springs have mostly 
dired up now, thanks to the efforts of the 
Army Corps of Engineers and the forces of 
nature and all that remains are stone foun- 
tains with tiny jets of water shooting ob- 
scenely skyward. The super Jesus was pre- 
sumably constructed to keep some of the 
tourists in Eureka Springs by a very wealthy, 
zealously Christian businessman, who retired 
to the community to bring the wonders of his 
beneficence and his money to the Ozarks. 
Eureka Springs' other attractions now are its 
surroundings, which are impressive, and at 
this time of year with the fall colors in 
evidence eve rywhere- -peak foliage, the bro- 
chures call it--especailly so, and the town's 
burgeoning community of craftsmen. 

Actually, my purpose in going to Eureka 
Springs was neither the craft 's scene nor 
the colors on the trees nor to catch the last 
performance of the season of the Passion 
Play (which was rained out anyway, ]>erhaps 
significantly) . There was to be a festival 
of sorts taking place there, officially call- 
ed the 'Annual Ozark Folk Festival', and I 
assumed, not entirely incorrectly, that any 



folk festival in the Ozarks would absolutely 
have to have a liberal sprinkling of moun- 
tain music of the genre "bluegrass." There 
were rumors flying about that Doc Watson was 
supposed to put in an appearance there, which 
would, if they proved to be ture, make the 
trip worthwhile at twice the distance. Unfor 
tunately, those rumors turned out to be just 
about as valid as the ones which fill the air 
around rock festivals and the like concerning 
"appearances" by Bob Dylan or raising from the 
dead of Jimmy Hendrix, which is not very. 
There was some quite decent fiddle playing in 
the afternoons in the park, however, and an 
appearance by Grand Ole Opry regular Grandpa 
Jones, which created quite a stir even 
amongst the oldsters in the crowd who love, 
above all else, well-played banjo. 

Other than that, the music was pretty 
grim. A band from Little Rock spent a couple 
of hours on the stage Saturday afternoon 
playing mediocre or worse renditions of some 
Hank Williams stuff. Another group from 
either Fayetteville or Fort Smith, they talk- 
ed about both as though it was home, played 
what they called country but what sounded 
more like late-fifties schmaltz, and bad 
schmaltz at that. 

Overall, the festival needs some work to 
make it as good as it could be with some pro- 
per direction. Management of the thing ap-« 
peared to have been left up to just about any 
one who did not get out of the way in time to 
be pressed into service, with the result that 
the product came over pretty weakly. The 
"hillbilly" section got in the way of the 
slicked down tourist business, and the summer 
hippie section got in the way of both. About 
the legitimate crafts people, they wisely 
stayed pretty much out of town for the week- 
end to keep from getting run over by some guy 
from Joplin, Missouri in a god-awful huge 
Winnebago camping machine. 

As a guy from New Jersey said just out- 
side of town where he was working on the 
house that he just bought, having moved 
there from Tuscon, Arizona which was 'too 
damn flat and toooo damn hot,' "close off 
the streets to the automobile and worse 
traffic, open up the thing to some of the 
truly legitimate musicians, of which there 
are several in the hills around town, quit 
trying to catch every tourist dollar that 
happens by, and you might have something 
vorth seeing." You might, but not yet. 






THE NEW 
ALCHEMY 

SAUL-PAUL SIRAG 

RIGHTS BfStRVtD ALTERNATIVE 
r/^f. f '- aT IIRES SERVICE 

' ^o r ■ ^-^^ 

MYSTERIES OF THE ALCHEMISTS UNEXPLAINED 

Some alchemists known as Adepts are said 
to have made gold by putting a little red- 
dish powder into a molten mass of lead. 
Their aim was not to make gold, however- - 
they were testing whether or not they had 
succeeded in making the reddish powder, call 
ed the Philosopher's Stone. 

They had to have a way of testing it be- 
cause when its quality was assured, they 
mixed a tiny bit in. distilled wine and drank 
it as an "elixir of life." They believed 
the elixir was capable of curing diseases 
and prolonging youth. Surprising as it is 
to us today, the elixir's all-important 
function was to raise one's level of con- 
sciousness. 

At long last there is a book that makes 
alchemy a little clearer: Alchemists and 
Gold by French historian Jacques Sadoul . 
Even this book, however, is laden with 
abstruse metaphors, misleading nomenclature, 
and deliberate omissions --the result, per- 
haps, of persecution by the Church, the 
greed of princes , and the destructive bent 
of military' men, which are some of the his- 
torical reasons for alchemists* secrecy. 



By present scientific standards, alchemy 
doesn't make sense. True enough, physicists 
can transmute one element into another by 
splitting and fusing atoms. But this is 
done with rather large madiines called ac- 
celerators, using enormous amounts of elec- 
tricity. Also we have chemical ways (such 
as LSD) to change our level of consciousness. 
But this doesn't seem to have anything to do 
with metal chemistry. We certainly don't 
yet have a chemical "fountain of youth," 
though not for lack of trying. 

Yet for all its fabulousness, there are 
sober, historical reasons for believing that 
alchemy was for real : there were people who 
became quite suddenly wealthy. They were 
not alchemists, but claimed to have been 
contacted by alchemists, who had given them 
small quantities of the reddish powder, the 
Philosopher's Stone. 

They had been instructed to demonstrate 
transmutation to highly placed people, es- 
pecially sceptical scientists. The alchemists 
apparently wanted to show that their art was 
not fictitious. They did well to stay in 
hiding, for the usual outcome of openness was 
that some king would order a demonstration of 
goldmaking, and when it was successful, im- 
prison the demonstrator to get the secret out 
of him, usually by torture. 

Two scientists, according to their own 
testimony, carried out transmutations in the 
seventeenth century. The Belgian chemist 
Jean-Baptists van Helmont in 1618 was given 
some powder by an alchemist. Helmont did the 
transmutation himself and had the courage to 
publish his results. In 1666, Helvetius the 
physician to the Prince of Orange in The 'Hague 
received a very small quantity of yellow pow- ' 
der from a stranger. He had been an out- 
spoken opponent of alchemy, but his own ex- 



periment with the powder changed his mind. 

He had the gold tested in the Dutch Office 
of Assay, and the Master Controller of the 
laboratory said that it was of the highest 
standard he had ever seen. In 1667, Benedict 
Spinoza, the philosopher, gives an account of 
his investigation of the transmutation: 'To 
make sure of my facts, I went to see Brechtel, 
the man who did the assay. He told me that 
while it was being melted, the gold had actu- 
ally increased in weight when he dropped some 
silver into the pot. The gold that changed 
must have been of a very remarkable kind!" 

Accounts of the health of alchemists are 
also in the historical record. There are 
several on Count St. Germain (recorded over 
many years) saying that he always appeared to 
be about 45 years old. Although he attend 
many banquets , the records say he never ate 
a thing. 

There have been alchemists who made the 
philosopher's stone right up to the present. 
The most famous twentieth century Adept is 
a man going by the name of Fulcanelli. This 
alchemist warned the chemist Jacques Bergier 
in 1937 about the dangers of atomic explosions 
and artificial radio-activity. (The first 
atomic chain reaction in official science 
happened in 1943.) In 1945, an American major 
working for an intelligence unit contacted 
Bergier. The major was in a terrible sweat 
to find the alchemist, Fulcanelli. 

Fulcanelli's description of alchemy is 
worth pondering. "You will not be unaware 
that in present-day official science the 
part played by the observer becomes more and 
more important. Relativity, the principle of 
contingency, demonstrates how important is the 
role of the observer nowasays. The secret of 
alchemy is that there exists a means of mani- 
pulating matter and energy so as to create 
what modern science calls a field of forces. 
The field of forces acts upon the observer 
and puts him in a privileged position against 
the universe. From this privileged position 
he has access to realities that space and time, 
matter and energy normally conceal from us. 
This is what we call the Great Work." 

Based mainly on the writings of Fulcanelli, 
Cylaini, and Phililethes, Sadoul presents a 
detailed procedure for making the philosopher's 
stone. The procedure is not simple but it is 
at least clear. For the first time the vexing 
question of the starting material is plainly 
discussed. Those of us with a sense of irony 
will be happy to know that it is possible to 
begin on the alchemical path using as our 
starting material iron pyrites, or "fool's 
gold."

Literary Trends at 
Pierretnont Mall 



by Cherry Payne 



"I would like to think I'm a person living 
opinions rather than being opinionated." 

And truly this lady does precisely that. 
Mrs. Jean Rabb is owner/manager of the Book 
Boutique across from Pierremont Mall. While 
Mrs . Rabb could be employed in any number of 
capacities, a bookstore seems most appropri- 
ate, for it is here that she mav incorporate 
all of her many interests and skills in one 
direction. 

Admittedly, her talents are many. Mrs. 
Rabb holds a Bachelor of Arts degree with a 
triple major--English, Sociology, and History 
with minors in Science and French. While 
she does not hold a graduate degree as such, 
she had had a considerable amount of gradu- 
ate work, particularly in the field of psy- 
chology. She has taught extensively, par- 
ticularly at the secondary level, and has 
even done some testing for the parish sdiool 
system. In addition, Mrs. Rabb once wrote 
a book column for a local daily but resigned 
"...because they did what they call editing 
and what I call butchering." She does do 
occasional writing for the Minden paper pre- 
sently. 

In speaking of literary trends and the 
kind of literature being read, Mrs. Rabb 
noted that the older generation seems to be 
reading the "escape" literature while the 
younger people are reading more seriously. 
"I really think they are trying to solve 
their own personal problems and the world's 
problems in a much more thoughtful manner 
than my generation," "'rs. Rabb maintains. 
She did express concern about television and 
what effect it is having upon the children 
of today in relation to education. 

She noted that ours is a visually oriented 
society and because of this, emphasis upon 
reading has deteriorated. 'Many parents 
turn the baby sitting chore over to the tele- 
vision," she pointed out. She stressed the 
importance of merely reading to children 
for their exposure to it, if nothing else. 
Futhermore, she noted that children should 
be taught to read earlier. They have the 
capacity to learn at a younger age, she feels, 
and the curiosity and enthusiasm of young 
children is such that they would be more re- 
ceptive to learning. 

Not only does Mrs. Rabb have ideas about 
education at the elementary level, however. 
Speaking of Centenary she expresses the de- 
sire to see the education department here 
establish some sort of school (for pre- 
schoolers, for instance). Learning, Mrs. 
Rabb emphasizes, comes only through prac- 
tical ." ^-perience. 

Another idea which she stressed is to 
have people who have been successes in their 
fields to teach their specialty. .As an 
example, she mentioned older people who 
were forced to retire. Here, she feels, is 
a surplus of talents and these people need to 
be needed. Mrs. Rabb feels that successful 
professional people should be brought in to 
teach for a semester, over the interim or 
during the summer. She mentioned this as 
possibly being funded by the Great Teachers 
Scholarship Program. 

Interestingly enough, Mrs. Rabb feels 
that we need to return to the arts and the 
idea of working with one's hands. "We have 
put the white collar too high," she main- 
tains. "I would like to see a combination 
of craftsmanship and education... I wish 
that there was some happy marriage of the 
humanities and vocational training. I 
would like to see a return to pride in 
craftsmanship, for instance. . .cabinet ma- 
king, glass blowing and stone masonry." 
Attacking planned obsolescence, Mrs. Rabb 
believes that we need to simplify ourselves 
a little and regain some sense of pride in 
the work we do and respect for the crafts- 
man. 

During the course of our conversation 
Mrs. Rabb expresses much concern about Cen- 
tenary and the future. Distressed at the 
rumor that many students plan to leave Cen- 
tenary at the end of this semester, she 
questioned the manner in which the open dorm 
controversy was handled. Ye 
most refreshing was that she sic the 
students en -. ae continued by 



noting that if people cannot handle them- 
selves by the time they get to college, they 
never will be able to do so. Seeing a 
lack of communication and involvement with 
Centenary and the Shreveport community, Mrs. 
Rabb believes that her ideas on education 
previously mentioned would pull the two 
together. 

Mrs. Rabb is a most delightful and stimu- 
lating individual. Her optimism is refresh- 
ing ('Tour job should be fun, your religion, 
your education,") and her general knowledge 
amazing. She loves to talk with people and 
exchange ideas. Everyone is welcome at the 
Book Boutique. It's worth a trip down there.

The 

Love Drug 

by Buddy Mevins/AFS 

'There w*»re nude bodies everywhere, squirm- 
ing to get off of a large throw rug and into 
their clothes." 

Hie setting of a new pornographic movie? 
\'o--the police report of a raid on a metha- 
qualone party, America's aphrodisiac drug 
kick that is spreading fast. 

Called 'The Love Drug" by users because 
of its reported loosening of inhibitions, 
police first started noticing large scale 
methaqualone abuse about six months ago. 
"IVe began finding those little white 
tablets," said one narcotics agent, "along 
with the regular assortment of pot and 
pills. It sent us running for our copy of 
the Physicians' Desk Reference (a book 
containing data and picture. 1 ; of all pre- 
scription medicines) to find out what every- 
one was using." 

Made under the trade name Parest , SOPOR, 
and Quaalude, methaqualone is a nonbarbitu- 
rate sedative given to patients who have 
trouble sleeping. Unlike most other 
"downs," methaqualone is not physically ad- 
dictive, but it can cause psychological de- 
pendency . 

Illegal users oi the drug claim it causes 
drunkenness, slurring of words and loss of 
muscle control. But perhaps the best-liked 
effect and definitely the_ reason most give 
for its growing popularity is its enhance- 
ment of the sex drive. 

ies among users are not uncommon and 
the racy drug is in great demand with 

roups of young, married couples.

It is methaqualone 's use as a love potion

not a harmless placebo to be used at every

physician specializing in the treat-

"Parest provides help for thousands of

sold in differing strengths. "he realize

minor charge in most areas. But federal

derelicts pressed against the walls. 

Ihe dissolves stop in a dingy hotel

down to the sidewalk, does an indecisive 
wobble at the door, flips the still unlit 

tte into the street, and returns up- 
stairs. He stuffs some gear into a g

In the first five minutes of Fat Cil 
tor John Huston I 
put together an exquisite short film that 
captures the essence of the picture. Holly-

Fortunately, Leonard Gardner's fine 

md screenplay attracted monev, 
a big distributor, John Huston, and a cast 

includes k'each, Jeff Bridges, Susan 
Tyrrell and Nicholas Colasanto as the for- 
ever hopeful fight manager Reuben Luna. The 
combination hits the top--f;r voking 
melancholy and tenderness in vividly por- 
d brutal surroundings. 
The most remarkable aspect of Huston's 
production is the accuracy of his working 
class settings and complete lack of the 
traditional condescension. The dusty streets 



of Stockton's skid row breathe in this film. 
So do the small, sweaty arenas of the local 
bouts, and the onion fields where Billy Tully 
and later young Ernie Munger bend in the mid- 
day heat. These scenes are portrayed with- 
out romanticism or comment. That life 
simply exists, and people inhabit those tight- 
ly circumscribed worlds. It's a revelation 
to see such things in a U.S. theatre- -there 
has been nothing like it since the Canadian 
Coin' Down the Road . 

The beauty in many of the small sequences 
hinges on the efforts of two people to re- 
late, always just missing by a distance per- 
ceived only by the audience. The scenes of 
Tully picking up the drunken Susan Tyrrell in 
a sleazy bar, and later their fight over a 
flophouse meal, show personal interaction work 
ing through a haze of misguided talk. Ihe 
acting and script come together perfectly to 
reveal character and human condition. 

At the bottom of central Californian 
cities, White, Black, Chicano and Indian 
meet in a common neighborhood of despair. 
Huston captures that feeling with refresh- 
ingly unstylized performances by the Black 
and Mexican actors, and by the camaraderie 
expressed with them by the poor whites. 
Reuben Luna's pathetic stable of Mexican, 
White and Black fighters is a fine ex;tmple. 

Fat City is finally about hope, ;ind fail- 
ure, and ambitions that were not quite strong 
enough. Reuben Luna remains forever hopeful 
of a winner, but presides instead over the 
gradual wreckage of human flesh and spirit. 

In his novel , Gardner writes of Luna's 
boxers, "As if in rebellion against his in- 
fluence, they had succumbed to whatever in 
them was weakest, and often it was nothing 
he could even define. They lost when tl 
should have won and they drifted away." 

Ihe film ends in ;ui all-night ca 
Tully and Fmie 'lunger staring blankly 
ahead with nothing to say to each other.

trapped with that knowledge, each has se 
the dreams of his youth t Ihe

IN THE CORNERS 

When you sit down with Larry Little to 
talk about his prospects for the corner 
spots --the forwards --it's got to be an easy 
interview. Not only does Little like to 
talk about his forwards, he's got good 
reasons --about six to be exact--that make 
that position a favorite discussion topic. 
And there's a lot to be said about each 
man.

Female Cagers Set Action 

There was a meeting on October 31st of all 
girls interested in participating on the the 
Women's Extramural Basketball Team. There 
were approximately 12 girls out for this 
meeting. 

Miss Settlemire introduced her "condition- 
ing program" which the girls will be working 
on. Practice will be starting November 7th, 
at 8:00 pm. The girls have their first game 
on December 8th with Henderson State College 
and on December 9th they will play Ouachita 
Baptist. Letters are being sent to fourteen 
other colleges around to try to set up a 
schedule on a home-on-home basis. 

The girls are presently trying to come up 
with a good name for the team. If you have 
any good suggestions, please tum them into 
either Miss Settlemire or Eileen Kleiser. 

WRA News

mation is posted in the girls dorms. Be 
sure and check the list to see which team 
you are on. 

That's it for another week! 



SENIOR LARRY DAVIS 

. . . the results are what count. 

The first name that comes up in the dis- 
cussion of the cornermen --indeed, this name 
comes up first in almost any discussion of 
Centenary basketball --is Larry Davis, a 
six -foot -three senior out of Shreveport- 
Woodlawn. Everything that can be written 
about Larry Davis has probable already been 
written, but it all deserves to be put down 
again. To begin with, Davis --nicknamed 
"Spaceman" because of his ability to seem- 
ingly defy the laws of gravity with 
his fantastic leaping ability- - 
led the team in scoring (20.5) and re- 
bounding (8.2) last year en route to being 
chosen Most Valuable Player by his team- 
mates. His career point total (876) is 
eighth on the all-time Gent scoring list, 
but he should improve that to second or 
third by the end of the upcoming season. 
And he didn't get those totals by throwing 
the ball up every time he got it either; his 
two-year floor percentage is .539 and, should 
he duplicate that mark this year, Larry 
would set an all-time Centenary record in 
that department. 

"Larry is a real exciting player to watch 
because of his many offensive moves and jum- 
ping ability," Little understates. "Larry, 
will be counted upon heavily this year to 
provide leadership to some of the younger 
players coming up," says the Gent mentor, and 
then tells why Davis gives nightmares to un- 
fortunate opponents charged with the mission 
of trying to stop him. "He has the ability 
to score'both inside and outside. When you 
add to that the fact that he can effectively 
use both his left hand and his right hand in 
and around the basket, that makes him double- 
tough to defense. I know that some of his 
moves and shots look unorthodox, but he has 
fantastic body control , and those moves get 
results." Little smiles, 'We looking for the 
results, you know." 

The other senior forward is six -five 
Bossier High grad John Hickerson. John-- 
who became a starter at about the midway 
point last season- -led the team in point 
production in the last two games of the 
season. Little is pleased to report that 
"John has been a vastly improved player 



over his four years at Centenary. He did 
an outstanding job in the last half of the 
season last year. John possesses great 
quickness for a man of his size. And 
he's a lot better player since he became 
more agressive on the boards." That's 
the truth- -Gent fans may remember quite 
a few instances last season when John 
decided that he and a basketball soaring 
high above the rim had a date with destiny-- 
and nobody, but nobody, could stop him from 
keeping that appointment. Little cites 
Hickerson as "...one of the reasons we won 
11 out of 15 ball games at the end of last 
year." 

A NEWCOMER 

Junior Roosevelt Fuller, who prepped in 
Shreveport at all -black (now phased out) 
Valencia High, comes to Centenary after a 
two-year junior college stint at Henderson 
County JC in Athens, Tex. Of Roosevelt, 
Little says, 'He's made great strides in 
the last week. Like any other transfer 
player, he has to feel his way at first- - 
learning our- drills and systems. But has 
improved considerably. There's no question 
about his innate ability. He's a leaper 
and what I call a 'streak shooter.' And 
he has the quickness to be a good defensive 
player." Then Little says what you'd ex- 
pect him to say about a man with Fuller's 
reputation: "Roosevelt doesn't have his 
game all together yet, but if and when 
he does..." O.K. Roosevelt, keep that 
game coming along . 

"Leon will play an important role in 
our varsity program for the next three years," 
announces Little when asked about sophomore 
forward Leon Johnson. Johnson is six- 
five and led the Gents' much heralded fresh- 
man squad last year with 26.5 points and 15 
rebounds per game. 'Leon is quickly approach- 
ing a 'complete ball player,' I feel," Little 
continues, "There's no question about his 
shooting ability. And he's excellent to have 
on the fast break either on the wing or in 
the middle." Aw, c'mon, Coach--a six-foot- 
fiver leading the mad dash down the court? 
"You betcha," Little retorts, "He's a good 
pas'ser off the fast break. And he'll also 
be an important factor in the full court 
press." 

Another six-foot-five soph, Jerry Waugh, 
is also on Little's list of men who are set 
for action in the comers. "Jerry has been 
one of the most pleasant surprises of the 
season so far," says Little. "He's pro- 
bably our best passing forward and he's go- 
ing to be a steady player. He has good 
timing on the offensive board and, when he 
becomes a little more agressive defensively, 
he'll see considerable playing time." 

With this abundance of talent, Little 
sees a real opening up of the Gent offense. 
Explains the coach about what would happen 
if an opponent's defense directed its ef- 
forts to stopping, say, Parish in the mid- 
dle, "We hope we can get the defense to 
concentrate on stopping maybe one phase of 
our offense, because we feel like we've 
got enough balance to score a lot of ways." 
In other words, if Robert found a lot of 
company in the middle, that would leave 
Davis and his forward corps free to do their 
thing with less harassment. On the other 
hand, if the cornermen drew the attention, 
then Parish would have a lot more playing 
room inside. 

"There, aren't many teams in the country 
who'll have more quickness at forward than 
we will," offers Little, assessing the 
overall outlook at forward. 'They'll be 
pretty good percentage shooters- -but if they 
have a shortcoming or liability, it would 
have to be size. They don't reaily have the 
size of big-time college forwards, who usual- 
ly go six-nine or bigger. But we're going 
to try to make up for that with quickness. 
Overall, I would say this looks to be our 
strongest position, mainly as a result of 
the caliber of the starters- -whoever they 
may be- -and also the depth." 

Quality, quickness, and depth--that 's 
the Gents ' forwards for the coming year .

Dare To Be Great 

Where Have All the 
Flower Children Gone? 



Women's Lib Comes to Town 

by Mary Oakland 

Upon entering the first meeting of the National Organization for Women in Shreveport Tuesdav night I 
found no bonfires bearing the sign, "For Restrictive Underwear Only" or any male figures hung in effigy 
The situation was as I had expected it to be. ' 

There were about fifty normal, child-rearing, husband- feeding women in the room (including four black 
women) and four men. After adjusting to the depressing realization that there probably wouldn't be any 
riots that night, I got a nametag , signed the register, and was handed a couple of pamphlets and an appli- 
cation for membership. r 

Linda Martin, a member of the NOW Chapter in Baton Rouge was the speaker. She began by explaining why 
she first became a member of NOW. Ms. Martin had been an out-of-work Chemist who discovered that three 
companies m Baton Rouge all followed the same policy- -no women chemists. Naturally being a bit enraged 
she joined NOW in an attempt to solve her problem. 

Ms. Martin went on to explain. the history of NOW. The organization was founded in 1966 by 28 women. 
Betty Friedan, the first national president, is one of the most tamous members. Alley Butler Moore, a black 
woman from Louisiana, is not as well-known, but she was of equal importance in the founding of the movement. 

The basic purpose of the organization is full equality for women. Ms. Martin began a lengthy discussion 
of the Equal Rights Amendment by saying that it is the "number 
one top priority fcr NOW" and that the Shreveport chapter will 
soon devote one meeting to an explanation fo the bill. She 
continued by reading this amendment, which passed March 22, 1972. 
It will become a part of the Constitution after it has been rat- 
ified by 38 states. At the present time, 21 states have approved 
it, so 17 more are needed. It will not go into effect until 
two years after ratification in order to give the states time 
to change some of their laws. In Louisiana, the amendment 
passed 25-13. in the Senate and was defeated 64-32 in the House. 
The major objections were the draft and rest rooms. Ms. Mar- 
tin pointed out that the only time "women" is mentioned in the 
Constitution is in the 19th amendment. "When the founding 
fathers said 'man,' they meant man." 

She mentioned four other goals and activities besides pas- 
sing the E. R. A. The first was solving the problem of cre- 
dit for women, especially married women. Apparently many women 
in Louisiana have been having difficulties getting credit in 
their own name. This is partly due to the fact that in Louisi- 
ana, the husband is the head and master of the community, and 
therefore may legally tell his wife what money is to be spent, 
even if she has earned it. One of the main reasons women should 
want credit in their own name is that someday they might be di- 
vorced or widowed without a credit rating. 

The second activity was letter-writing. Margin suggested 
telling each delegate to the Constitutional Convention that a 
statement that no rights should be denied because of sex should 
be included in the new constitution. 

The third activity was a study of schoolbooks. It seems that 
many of the children's books tell little boys that they should 
be firemen and policemen and little girls that they should be 
mommies and secretaries . 

The fourth activity was rap sessions. These sessions would 
be for about 7-10 women who should get together outside of the 
regular meetings to talk about various problems and to build

To those of us who are purely "liberal 
arts" students, Mickle Hall presents a rather 
forbidding countenance. The very thought of 
taking a class on the first, second or third 
floors of Mickle virtually causes us unscien- 
tific slobs to quake in our shoes. Yet, in 
my two years at Centenary, a predominantly 
liberal arts college, I have made some rather 
stunning discoveries. 1) Chemists are (can 
be) human and 2) the necessary prerequisite 
for being a chemist (assuming our five pro- 
fessors on the third floor represent the 
norm and not the deviate) is pure, unadul-

THE CONGLOMERATE 



November 17, 1972 



The Argir Group, a highly accomplished 
acoustical rock group, will perform in the 
SUB Coffeehouse tonight, tomorrow and Sunday 
at 8:00pm. Fred Argir, leader of the three- 
some, plays twelve-string and standard guitar, 
and sings harmony with Texas University grad- 
uate Betsy Bernard. James Lampley , left, 
plays bass. The group, which has been well 
received by campuses on this current tour, 
has been experimenting with combining serious 
poetry and contemporary music styles. 



Ad Policy Set 



The Student Life Committee met during the 
break Tuesday to decide on a policy for preg- 
nancy-related referral service advertisements 
in the CONGLOMERATE, and to take action on 
the proposed Mardi Gras Holiday. 

The bulk of the meeting was devoted to the 
issue of what members constantly called "abor- 
tion ads." Dr. Fergal Gallagher suggested a 
delay on a decision pending a complete check 
on the service whose ad prompted the entire 
matter, but the Committee decided to formulate 
a general policy Tuesday. 

Discussion followed on the propriety of 
calling the referral service in question an 
"abortion" referral service; since this was 
not to the point, Committee Chairman Robert 
Ed Taylor called for a motion. 

It was Sandy Bogucki who made the motion 
eventually adopted by the committee. Sandy 
moved that the CONGLOMERATE be permitted to 
accept referral and counseling service ads, 
but that the word "abortion" be excluded 
from all such ads. Member and Senate Presi- 
dent Rick Clark seconded. 

At. Jeff Hendrick's behest, Ms. Bogucki a- 
mended her motion to further require a pre- 
publication check on the service requesting 
advertising privileges. After further dis- 
cussion, CONGLOMERATE Editor Taylor Caffery 
labeled the motion "a good compromise." 

Following suggestions as to the criteria 
to be followed (what constitutes a "good" re- 
ferral service?) , the motion was brought to 
a vote that the ads, following a good faith 
check by the Editor, be permitted, without 
use of the word "abortion." The motion pass- 
ed with no opposing votes. 

The next topic was the Honor system for 
dorm visitation, but Dean of Students Eddy 
Miller requested a delay pending further work 
and study. 

Then it was time to discuss the proposed 
Mardi Gras Holiday. Senate President Clark 
read a unanimous Senate resolution requesting 
a two-day holiday for Mardi Gras, on an ex- 
peridental basis. Ms. Bogucki moved for ac- 
ceptance, there was a second, and then came 
discussion, most of which centered on the need 
to make up the lost class time if the holiday 
were adopted on a permanent basis. 

A vote was taken, and the Student Life Com- 
mittee voted to approve the resolution and 
send it on to the Faculty. 

Surprises from Susan 

YONCOPIN Editor Susan Bell promises 
several surprises in this year's YONCOPIN. 

The YONCOPIN, of course consists of four 
main sections: Features, which includes Stu- 
dent Life and Personalities; Organizations, 
which means Greeks, service groups, and aca- 
demic honor societies; the People section, 
which includes classes, faculty, and ad- 
ministration; and the Sports department. 

A lot of the pictures for this year's 
Hook are already in, Susan said. Others 
will be in in plenty of time. 

She and the rest of the YONCOPIN staff 
plan some changes in this year's edition. 
For one, there will be a lot more copy to 
balance out the pictures. Since the staff 
is more experienced this year, Ms. Bell 
noted, the YONCOPIN will reflect greater 
profess ionality. 

And the surprises? Wait and see.

Dallas underground newspaperman Stoney 
Bums was sentenced to 10 years and one day 
for possession of less than 1/10 of an ounce 
of marijuana after a week long trial in Dal-

excludes the possibility of probation. In 
Texas, only sentences of 10 years or less 
can be probated. 

Burns was arrested last March when po- 
lice searched his van and allegedly found

of a small amount of marijuana is still a

Senate ^.eftont 

by Carol Bickers 

At its November 9 meeting the Student 
Senate discussed everything from abortion ads 
in the CONGLOMERATE to WRA uniforms . 

The major committee report was given by 
Dr. Fergal Gallagher of the Publications sub- 
committee of Student Life. He pointed out 
that this committee was considering the abor- 
tion ads with two primary questions in mind. 
First, the committee was considering the ef- 
fect of these ads on the local community.. 
Among the committee the consensus was that 
these ads might harm the College's image. 
Secondly, the committee wondered if the agen- 
cy, Problem Pregnancy, was legitimate. Dr. 
Paul Ware, a local psychiatrist, is now in- 
vestigating the validity of this agency. 

In other committee reports Barry Williams 
noted that Educational Policies and Standards 
was still evaluating Great Issues and the 
course-credit system. Dean Miller reported 
that the SUB committee was busy contacting 
interior decorators. 6 

Last week the Senate also considered the 
i^n X faci lities for the Homecoming Dance. 
Among the suggested places were the Conven- 
tion Center, Holiday Inn in Bossier, and 

W%hT+u *T- Rick Clark stated emphatical- 
ly that the dance would not be held on campus

RefttiU i* Hie ^oUaye 

by Jess Gilbert and Mike Marcell 

The Sociology People are at it again. Al- 
ways bitching. May be our comments will shut 
them up once and frail. 

1. With about 85 majors and 100 advisees, 
the Soc. Dept. is, mayhaps, the third largest 
on our fair campus . Big deal . 

2. The department, under its present load, 
cannot off her a great variety of courses . 
And there is no time for re: search. Absurd. 

3. The teachers have heavy dig it teaching 
and counseling loads, plus other social log- 
ical activities. They claim that they are 
overworked and the students, occasionally un- 
dertaught. How abortive. 

4. To top it off, they done already got two 
teachers and they think that they done need 
some more to give the students the education- 
al x perience they done already paid for. 
Queer as a clockwork orange. 

Hey Soc. People: Naughty, naughty- -be nice 
and stop acting up. We in the Foliage pro- 
pose the following solutions to your "prob- 
lems": 

Shaft 75 of your majors, establishing a 
"Sociology of the Elite" with a student/fac- 
ulty ratio of 5 to 1. (This would avoid the 
Trauma and Honesty of add mi t ting a 50 to 1 
ratio.) Actually, a 10 to 1 ratio isn't too 
bad, huh? So fire Vetter. And use his sal- 
ary to hire an other Psychology teacher. But 
we really don't need another crazyologist any 
way. So hire Vetter back but cut his salary. 
That'll show him who's boss. 

Stop all community volunteer programs and 
abolish Open Ear, thereby dispelling the ill 
fusion of foolish freshmen that they have a 
chance for meaningful service while at col- 
lege. Ban all research- -knowledge does not 
change. Stifle the rumors that socio-lpgy is 
a growing field 'cause it's just a fad, like 
biochemistry and theology. 

Make your fellow Soc. Person feel proud of 
his underworked, overpaid, and uninterested 
pro Fessors . Convince him that his teachers 
have no family life or extra activities, that 
every minute is for the student how ridicu- 
lous. Fine alley, and most important, instill 
in every major the belief that he is getting 
the best education in sociology that Centenary 
can offer. Lie.

HOORAY FOR THE CONGLOMERATE! 

To the Editor: 

I would like to take this opportunity to 
convey a much deserved word of praise to you 
and your staff for publishing such an incre- 
dibly excellent paper as the CONGLOMERATE. 
For a school the size of Centenary, or of 
any size for that matter, this is a tremen- 
dous achievement. 

Cherry Payne's articles on open dorms, 
tarot cards, and mountain climbing were all 
out of this world. You bet your sweet piton 
they were. Mary Ann Callahan took a big 
load off my mind when I read her article, 
"Just Because You Bite Your Nails You're Not 
Necessarily a Sexual Flop". There will be no 
more sleepless nights for me now. Lou Graham's 
music articles are also worthy of a pat on the 
back. Just don't let Rolling Stone hear about 
him or you will be minus one writer. 

I have only one complaint to voice and that 
is in regard to the treatment r^iven P.eid Buck- 
n he appeared, lie lenows what he is 



talking about. 

While you and your staff complain about 
the prevalence of apathy on campus, you should 
realize and be glad you have the amount of 
involvement you do. Just with the CONGLOMERATE 
alone, I can see more cooperation and good vibes 
than with everything we have at Susquehanna put 
together . 

We do have a great radio station though. 
WQSU is the only reason I have not yet dropped 
out. 

We at S.U. seem to have many of the same 
problems that you people at Centenary do, but 
you seem to have much more going for you there 
than we do. I could think of nothing I'd rather 
do than go to the Pizza King on weekends and 
get destroyed (not really destroyed, but jolly 
enough so that I would forget about the F I 
am getting in Calculus II) . Then on Satur- 
days you have the main event -The Big Riggers 
football game. Wow! Sundays could be spent 
wadding up paper to put in Stan Taylor's file 
cabinet or organizing panty raids. What more 
do you guys want out of life? 

After looking over a stack of some of your 
back issues I acquired from my dad who works 
for the C.I. A., I was so inspired that I pro- 
mised myself I was going to finish writing 
that record review of ELP's 'Trilogy" that I 
started in August and which. in the meantime 
has collected more dust than an Electrolux does 
in a lifetime. I hope you will print it. May- 
be you can throw it in when you do not have 
too many fillers. 

I must sign off now, but will return again 
in the future to waste more of your copy space. 
You seem like you have a great bunch of kids 
down there. Enjoy what you can as much as you 
can and keep up the good work. 

Oh yes, I almost forgot to tell you. Posei- 
don is now playing his drums to a Mothers of 
Invention record and says to send you all his 
best.

HOORAY FOR THE KA'S! 

To the Members of Kappa Alpha Fraternity: 

Due to your efforts last Saturday, Open 
Ear is $116.00 richer. The money you col- 
lected made it possible for us to raise 
more than $1000 in one day. All of us 
deeply appreciate what you have done for us. 

Thank you for your support and coopera- 
tion. 

Sincerely,

HOORAY FOR THE ZTA'S! 
To the Editor: 

The United States is notorious for having 
one of the lowest voting turnouts among major 
Western industrialized democracies. While 
many European nations can boast average turn- 
outs rates of between 70 and 851, the U.S. 
rate usually hovers around 604 and quite 
often falls well below that figure in a non- 
Presidential election. 

It is thus reassuring to Political Scien- 
tists that there are groups who are actively 
attempting to promote a greater participation 
in the electoral process. One such group, 
which has received relatively little publici- 
ty, is the Centenary chapter of Zeta Tau 
Alpha, which this past week offered a baby- 
sitting service to local residents who other- 
wise probably would not have taken the trouble 
to even try to vote. 

While this may seem like a small thing, all 
major accomplishments come about from such 
seemingly minor acts. So on behalf of the 
profession, and others concerned about the 
reality of participatory democracy, I would 
like to publicly thank the ZTA's, and hope 
that it becomes an annual thing! 

Sincerely, 
W. P. Garvin 
Instructor of Government 
IN NOMINE HOMO 
To the Editor: 

Let me rebut Dr. Pomeroy very briefly and 
so, perhaps, bring this entire imbroglio to 
a conclusion. 

1. As for "which creation story", while it 
is true that, in his prefatory remarks, Dr. 
Pomeroy used the expression "in the Old Tes- 
tament", later on he completely dropped any 
such or similiar distinction. 

Pomeroy seeks an answer to the 
question of the source of evil, and that 



mn.iiMiiu

more mail 

answer is that, strangely enough, not every 
individual consistently acts in a rational 
manner, since not even Dr. Pomeroy would deny 
that to choose right over evil is the rational 
course. There is no need to despair for an 
answer, merely to seek one. There is no need 
to wallow in self-degradation, wailing, "I 
cannot!"; one merely needs to recognize that 
one can (determine a rational answer) , and 
then do so. 

3. When I referred to Dr. Pomeroy's ab- 
dication of his heritage, that is, his rea- 
soning powers, as "the remark of limited re- 
sources", Dr. Pomeroy agreed; but does he 
understand that he was unimaginative and too 
quickly resignatory in his search for a 
rational answer? 

4. According to the Old Testament, Adam 
and Eve performed one misdeed, to wit, an 
act of petty thievery. In return, God con- 
demned the entire human race. Dr. Pomeroy 
does not object to this insane display of 
psychotic injustice; indeed, by aligning 
himself with God and blaming Man, he approves 
of it. I wonder how long it will be before 
Dr. Pomeroy walks up to one of the Jewish 
students on campus and asks, "Why did you 
kill Christ?" One would not blame the stu- 
dent if he, like Jesus himself, felt a 
little cross. 

5. I would like to see the dictionary from 
which Dr. Pomeroy draws the word "deny" as a 
definition of or synonym for "curse" — or 
has he written his own? If Dr. Pomeroy meant 
curse, he should have said curse, not use 
misfitting defintion and then attempt to ob- 
scure the issue with a cloud of semantic dust. 

6. As stated in #2 above, there is a ration- 
al answer to the question of the source of 
evil. We must deal with the source of evil, 
not merely dress the symptoms thereof. This 
means some sensible and substantive action, 
not becoming the Fred Astaire of obfuscatory 
rhetoric. 

Yes, we can overcome and destroy evil, Dr. 
Pomeroy, but not by saying that we are help- 
less. Let us rejoice in our greatness as 
human beings and eliminate all that mars 
that grandeur.

To the Editor: 

Owing to the word limit I may answer only 
one of Dr. Pomeroy's charges made in last 
week's CONGLOMERATE . 

Dr. Pomeroy states that he can produce 
on demand, a rational human being who was 
not insulted by his letter. I stand firm- 
ly behind my statement, that any rational 
man was insulted by Dr. Pomeroy's letter. 
I think that the conflict lies in the de- 
finition - of a rational human being. I would 
assume that Dr. Pomeroy would point to a 
man such as Albert Einstein (he has been 
ased in such arguments more than most) who, 
Dr. Pomeroy would say, was a rational man 
and believed in a god. I do not agree that 
Einstein was a rational -aan. True he was 
rational in his handling of physics, mathe- 
matics, and other of the sciences, but he was 
grossly irrational when it came to perhaps 
the most important of a person's decisions-- 
a choice of a code of ethics. 

A rational man is a man who is rational 
in every aspect of his life, including his 
choice of a code of ethics . As I stated in 
my last letter religion has too long held a 
monopoly on ethics. Altruism is the domi- 
nant code of ethics today, chosen as such 
by the vast majority of people. I have not. 
I" try to live by a code of rational self- 



interest. I was insulted by Dr. Pomeroy's 
letter and I maintain that any totally rat- 
ional man was.

WHAT ETHICS? 

To the Editor: 

Volume S of the Encyclopedia of Religion 
and Ethics has strayed from the Centenary 
Library again. This would appear to be a 
religious and ethical commentary, not good, 
about the Centenary scene . 

The Library is operated for the use of 
everyone in the Centenary community. In- 
dividuals who accidentally or intentionally 
purloin library materials may satisfy their 
immediate research or study needs. They al- 
so make it impossible for others to have, the 
satisfaction of finding these same materials 
which they may need for their study and re- 
search. 

The Xerox is available for making copies 
of any printed materials in the Library. 
Integrity and a clean conscience should be 
worth ten cents a page. 

Reformed sinners may return accidentally 
or intentionally purloined library materials 
in the front door book drop. This makeshift 
confessional offers partial absolution and 
does not ask questions.

MR. TURNER AND THE LAW 

by Jeff Daiell 
It was approximately one hundred years 
ago that Henry David Thoreau remarked that 
"the mass of men live lives of quiet des- 
peration." It was in this century that 
Arthur Miller brought forth his classic 
Death of a Sal esman, with its leading 

character, Willy Loman, Thoreau's prin- 
ciple incarnate. 

And there is no denying that Thoreau's 
observation holds in the United States to- 
day. Travel across America, and speak to 
her people; ask them about their hopes, 
their fears , their aspirations and their 
dreams. I think the result will be fairly 
--- and pathetically — uniform: America 
is in the throes of a limp wave of despair. 
The mass of Americans are living those 
lives of quiet desperation, and it is sad. 
It is sad because Man deserves better things . 
It is sad because Man was meant to live and 
despair and hopelessness is Death and Death 
most bitter and most foul. It is a pathos 
to bring agony to any decent individual , 
and it is enough to bring the pain of wit- 
nessed injustice to any lover of the Race. 

It is even more painful, therefore, when 
a voice arises in the wilderness, and offers 
to the parched denizens of the crudest of 
deserts the sweet and enthralling water of 
hope, only to be persecuted as a cur and a 
vermin and a plague. 

Such is the case, I believe after admit - 
• tedly limited investigation, with Glenn W. 
Turner and Turner Enterprises, especially 
one subsidiary thereof, Dare To Be Great, 
Inc. 

Glenn W. Turner started life as the son 
of a sharecropper whose income averaged $500 
a year. Not wishing to follow in his 
father's vicious -circle footsteps, he ran 
away from home, eventually joining the Air 
Force, where, because of his harelip, he 
was made ''Captain of the Latrine". 

After his tour of Air Force duty, Turner 
became a door-to-door sewing machine sales- 
man. He at one point became famous as such, 
once selling six machines in one day --an 
unprecedented figure. 

Later on, Glenn Turner was taken in by a 
cosmetics company more interested in selling 
franchises than in selling cosmetics. Al- 
though he learned from the experience, he 
saw the cosmetics business as a way not only 
to make money, but to bring other people to 
success along with himself. 

Glenn Turner thus originated Koscot, Inc. 
Of 273 cosmetics companies that began that 
year, his was the only one to survive. Every 
other company which began that year did so 
figuring to make their first profit in six 
years. Koscot made a profit its firt month. 

Yes , Koscot sold franchises . But Koscot 
strictly limited its franchises and the dis- 
tributor-populace ratio. Nevertheless, many 
States began passing laws requiring even 
lower ratios. Koscot complied. 

Even so, State after State sought to drive 
Koscot (officially, Koscot Interplanetary) 



from within its borders . Florida went so 
far as to pass a special law banning the 
structure of Koscot. Koscot promptly reor- 
ganized with a new structure. 

Jurisdiction after jurisdiction sued 
Turner for fraud. Amazingly, virtually none 
of Koscot 's investors or salespersons seemed 
upset with Glenn Turner. Almost no employee 
of Koscot objected to the way Turner had 
conned them — all the way to financial 
success most would have never thought pos- 
sible. The customers didn't seem very irked 
at Koscot, either: the company today has the 
largest per centage of repeat business of any 
cosmetics company in the united states- 

But Turner's troubles were just starting. 
As Turner Enterprises grew in both size, 
number of companies, and wealth, Glenn 
decided that there had to be a way to reach 
more people, to bring more leaders of lives 
of quiet desperation to the point where he 
or she could look at all about him or her 
and say, "it is good!" So he conceived and 
bore Dare To Be Great. 

What is Dare To Be Great? Dare To Be 
Great is simply a philosophy; a way of think- 
ing and therefore of living. It is the 
doctrine that every man carries within him 
the seeds of his own success; that it is 
the choice of every individual whether he/ 
she will savor the honey of happiness or the 
vinegar of misery. It is the proud and 
glorious cry which has been the salvation 
and the splendor of Humanity: "I can!". It 
is the knowledge that you are as great as 
you dare to be. 

Dare To Be Great teaches self -motivation. 
That's it. There are four courses, named 
Success Adventure I throught IV. To buy 
Adventure I, you pay $300. For both I and II, 
it costs $700. Buying the first three to- 
gether costs $2,000. And if you want all 
four it takes $S,000. 

Few prosecutors have any quarrel with that. 
The legal difficulty comes with the second 
aspect of the company. Those investing in 
either Adventure III or Adventure IV become 
eligible to recruit new members of Dare To 
Be Great. If you enroll in Success Adven- 
ture IV, and recruit someone into Adventure 
I, the company pays you $100. If you bring 
someone in at level II, they pay you $300. 
Recruit a new Adventure III student, and 
Dare To Be Great will give you a $900 com- 
mission. And if you bring someone in at 
Adventure IV, you earn $2,000. 

It is this aspect that has provoked so 
many guardians of the public weal. Suits 
have been filed against Glenn for fraud, for 
misleading advertising, for false advertising, 
and now Florida has sued him for failure to 
register as a security. 

They claim that great numbers of investors 
in Dare To Be Great fail. And that is true. 
The company tells prospective investors — 
BEFORE they invest --- that three of every 
four will fail. 

They claim that it is difficult to re- 
cruit people for Dare To Be Great, and I have 
seen the falsity of this charge in person. I 
have personally brought people to Turner meet- 
ings. It is entirely reasonable — and here 
I speak from personal experience and from 
first-hand observation — to bring three 
people a week to one of the "GO Tours" as 
they're called (the GO for Golden Opportunity). 
And the Gulf Coast area, in which I was in- 
volved, had a recruitment rate of 67.71. That 
is , of every thousand people who came to a GO 
Meeting, 677 earned commissions for their 
sponsors. After several weeks of involvement 
and observation, I deduced that those who fail- 
ed to succeed in Dare To Be Great were those 
who did not intend to earn commissions (one 
such man, a Toyota salesman, spent $700 on the 
first two levels. He was not eligible to re- 
cruit others and eam commissions. But 
what he had learned from the courses taught 
by DTBG had brought him so much closer to 
him to his dream of a Toyota dealership 
that he was a walking commercial for Dare 1 
To Be Great. Yet, he is probably listed in 
official prosecution files as someone who 
"lost his investment in Turner Enterprises," 
those who could not accept the reality of 
what had always been a dream, or those ex- 
pecting a free lunch and unwilling to accede 
to the principle that TANSTAAFL; those who 
would not work to bring their seeds to 
fruition as crops . I will not retreat from 
the statement that anyone can become wealthy 
in Dare To Be Great. I have seen the Cadil- 
lacs, the Mark Ills, the Continentals, the 
$200 suits. The wealth is there. It just

other scientist , yet he was an enemy of UFO 
research. Surprise! 

Hynek's book is partly a scathing criticism 
of the Condon report, and partly a presentation 
of 80 UFO cases, most of which he personally 
investigated (and most of which the Condon re- 
port ignored) . His main criticism of the Con- 
don committee's work is that they spent most 
of their time studying identified flying ob- 
jects (such as balloons, planets, aircraft) 
rather than investigating more reports of 
truly strange objects for which no ordinary 
explanation is possible. And Hynek points 
out that one quarter of the 90 Condon report 
cases were not explained, but rather buried 
in the vast mass of data that make up the 
965 -page report. 

Some of Hynek's cases are exceedingly well 
authenticated, with multiple technically- 
trained witnesses , independently making cor- 
roborative reports based on both visual and 
radar contact. For instance, on the morning 
of July 27, 1966, the Federal Aviation Agency 
tower in Greensboro, N.C., picked up radar 
UFO's and, independently, several policemen 
in the vicinity reported seeing UFO's buzzing 
by. By concentrating on the truly unidenti- 
fied phenomena, Hynek's plea for extending 
our study of UFO's becomes concrete. He does 
not make any claim that the UFO phenomena 
necessarily represent extra-terrestrial in- 
telligence. His approach is rather to say, 
"Look, whatever their source, the study of 
these strange objects is likely to lead to 
the understanding of new physical principles." 

One criticism that can be leveled at Hynek 
is that he arbitrarily excludes from consid- 
eration all UFO accounts that include com- 
municating with humanoid entities. He allows 
cases of seeing the entities, but draws the 
line at talking to them. Perhaps he didn't 
want to push credibility too far. But there 
are well -authenticated accounts of such com- 
munications, such as the Betty and Bamey Hill 
story brought out through independent hypnosis 
sessions with a prominent Boston psychiatrist. 
John Fuller wrote this up as The Interrupted 
Journey , most of which consists ot transcrip- 
tions from the psychiatrist's taped sessions 
with the Hills. 

Hynek says he left out UFO "contactee" 
accounts because they usually come from people 
who "manifest psychological aberrations." 
But, one must ask, "Who wouldn't manifest 
psychological aberrations after having such a 
weird experience, especially after having been 
led to believe that such encounters are im- 
possible?" 

Yet is is not so simple as that. For there 
are really three kinds of explanations offered 
by believers in the UFO phenomenon. First and 
loudest is the extra-terrestrail one--UFO's 
are expeditions from distant planets. One gets 
the impression that Hynek doesn't know whether 
to favor this theory or the second one--UFO's 
are causr • undiscovered physical prin- 



The one phenomenon that seems to unite many 
kinds of strange events, such as psychic heal- 
ing, dream schools, shamanism, alchemy, and 
now the flying saucer experience, is out-of- 
the body experience- -astral travel. I recent- 
ly heard June Carry describe some vivid astral 
travel experiences . One of the many things 
she saw in her travels was a group of flying 
saucers , and in another trip some of the huma- 
noid entities associated with them. The im- 
plication of her experience was that the fly- 
ing saucers may "fly" by a form of astral tra- 
vel. But astral travel is likely to be an of- 
ficially undiscovered physical principle for 
some time yet, so loosen your seat belts and..

AL KOOPER: A POSSIBLE PROJECTION 
OF THE FUTURE/CHILDHOOD'S END 

Al Kooper is, without question, one of 
the most talented musicians ever to ex- 
press himself on a circular p: ece of vinyl 
He has eight solo albums for Columbia to 
his credit, two of these made with that 
flashy young guitarist of the Electric 
Flag whom you all know of. Kooper found- 
ed a group credited with pioneering the 
so-called "jazz -rock" sound so many groups 
employ, and after recording one fantastic 
album with them, left to strike out on 
his own. He has been featured as a guest 
musician with Hendrix, Jagger, and Zim- 
merman, to name only a few. By composing 
and arranging material for countless other 
artists, Kopper has left his mark on even 
more music. He also spent some time with 
CBS as a full-time producer and, to top 
it all off, scored an entire movie sound- 
track. 

Ever since the release of the first BS§1 
album, I have been a big fan of Kooper's. 
His musical styles have, over the past 
five years , included straight blues , pop 
music, gospel, progressive jazz, and soul- 
ful R§B. He can play just about any in- 
strument made and on his album is heard on 



strength, and pinpoint precision are 
constant. My only complaint is that there 
is none of the improvisation (i.e. of the 
Super Session nature) that Kooper does so 
well on this disc. But if he continues 
to pour out more tight music of this 
quality, I won't be one to complain. 

Don't take my word for any of these 
good things I 've been saying about Al 
Kooper and his music wi though hearing him 
for yourself. For all you know, I could 
be one of his PR people, (but if so, why 
would I be writing for a small circulation?) 
Get your hands on any one of his albums , 
they're all excellent, and put it to the 
test. If after one or two playings every- 
thing I've said is not confirmed, you must 
be listening to it the wrpng way and there's 
no hope for you anyway. You'll go all 
through life regretting your blunder and 
straving yourself of this truly beautiful 
music.

Chemistry 



From Page One 

water is only minutes away. 

The faculty of the Chemistry department 
is most impressive, however, and do keep their 
students working. Dr. Robert Hood is Assis- 
tant Professor of Chemistry and received his 
doctorate from the University of Texas. He 
is presently director of the Centenary Test- 
ing Laboratory and teaches Inorganic Chemi- 
stry. He also types a lot. One Chemistry 
student (who shall remain nameless) is 
known to state that Dr. Hood is the only 
sane one of the lot. 

Dr. Charles B. Lowrey is Assistant Pro- 
fessor of Chemistry and the Registrar of the 
College at the "Big House." He earned his 
doctorate at the University of Houston. He 
presently teaches Organic Chemistry, and plays 
football. He is also well-renowned for his 
sense of humor and his children, cars and 
garage doors (like father like son?). 

Dr. .Rosemary Seidler is serving her term 
as Assistant Professor of Chemistry with her 
degree from Tulane University. She is pre- 
sently teaching Freshman and Analytical Che- 
mistry, purportedly gives tests on colored 
paper, enriches her students with "Quotes 
for the Day" ('•'How can ants be so placid 
when they're filled with formic acid?"- -Odgen 
Nash) and has her students discovering the 
acidity-basidity of Drano and beer. There is 
no doubt in my mind that Dr. Seidler was a 
mountain goat in her former life (her agility 
is incredible!) . 

Dr. Stanton A. Taylor is Associate Pro- 
fessor of Chemistry bearing his degree from 
the University of Oklahoma. He teaches Phy- 
sical and Freshman Chemistry and is renowned 
for his yodelling abilities. He is also known 
as "Dragon" or MacTaylorstein, and wears the 
ultimate in baggy pants. (Dr. Taylor truly 
should hold the title of "Best -Dressed Man on 
Campus") . 

Finally, we come to Dr. Wayne Hanson, Pro- 
fessor and Chairman of the Department of Chemi- 
stry. Dr. Hanson has been known to run a mile 
and teach Organic Chemistry simultaneously. 
He is truly a man of many skills. He reported- 
ly has given a test in which the matching 
section spells "Chemistry Examination" and 
has his students discovering the acidity of 
Jime Wade Foot Medicine, Alka Seltzer 
and Milk of Magnesia. 

A walk down the hall of the third 
floor of Mickle is bound to prove pro- 
ductive in some way, whether it is an en- 
counter with Einstein reincarnated or Igor 
lurking in the comer. Reliable sources 
state, however, that the department is well 
on its way to the solution of the problem 
of ultimate reality. Aach too oh.

has to be earned. 

But this is not a discussion of money, but 
rather of spirit. The spirit of hope as 
opposed to the spirit of despair. 

And I have seen first hand the fruits of 
victory as the spirit of hope has triumphed 
over and routed and banned forevermore the 
spirit of despair. I have seen an ex-long- 
shoreman suddenly know that there is more to 
Life than furnacelike holds, beer, and Bonan- 
za. I have seen him realize that Life is not 
merely a carpool and waiting for the whistle 
to blow. I have seen dirt farmers realize 
that the cycle of desperation and defeat can 
be broken — and I have seen them break it. 
I have seen Black people shatter the manacles 
of a still-lingering bigotry and exult in the 
new-found freedom of opportunity. I have 
seen people who had never lived before find 
Life. I have seen optimism where before the 
fi?ld beheld only gloom triumphant. I have 
seen it, and seer, it first-hand. I know it 
can be real, I know it was real for those I 
met, I find it onlv logical that it be real 
for all 600,000 members of Glenn K. Turner 
Enterprises . 

This is what some 25 States and the Fed- 
eral Government are attempting to snuff out. 
They will not succeed; I was privy to enough 
to know that Glenn Turner is at least a year 
ahead of even his closest aides and about 

iiis persecutors; he will not be 
stopped or even severely restrained. In- 
deed, 1980 may veil find Glenn Turner elect- 
ed President of the united states. So I 
am writing not for fear of his future. 

I write, inste anguish at h 

persecution. I do not like everything 



about Turner Enterprises ; they are too 
religious, too Good Samaritanistic, and too 
patriotic to please me entirely. But they 
are working to give Man back His heritage; 
His heritage of Life and of Hope. It is 
a work so very vital in our land and in 
our world today; the gloommongers and the 
shacklers of the spirit are plentiful and 
might)'. It cannot be sanely held too 
much to ask that the task of giving Man 
back Himself be allowed to continue un- 
impeded. For without Hope there is no Life, 
and those who steal or deny or waylay Hope 
are the cruelest and the most sadistic cri- 
minals of all. 

Women's Lib 

From Page One 

Ms. Martin ended her speech by discussing 
the nitty-gritties of any organization- -the 
dues. The national dues are ten dollars per 
month. If any Centenary students are interes- 
ted in joining, there is a $5.00 special mem- 
bership for students, retirees, etc. For $10, 
the member receives copies of the monthly 
publication, Do It Now , and of the quarterly 
NOW Acts . There are no salaried people in NOW 

Following Linda Martin's talk, there was 
a short intermission and slide show, "The Un- 
usual World of Children's Books," edited by 
Dr. Mary Metz. 

The film was very effective. It showed 
that in many children's books little boys are 
creative and have fun while little girls sit 
passively and play with dolls. Despite the 
fact that 391 of the work force .in the U.S. 
is women, mommies in the books always wear 
aprons --even bear mommies and cat mommies. 

Thes.e trends in children's literature some- 
times have a psyshological effect' on the 
voting readers. Occasionally, little girls 
tend to think of themselves as objects be- 
cause they are always supposed to wear frills 
and like to play "dress up," while little 
boys dress casually and have many outdoor ac- 
tivities. 

On the whole, the meeting was successful.

Most of the women seemed open to a few changes 
in thinking. If anyone on our unliberated 
campus is interested in joining NOW, Linda 
Martin's number is 635-9245 and the next

THE CONGLOMERATE 



November 17, 1972 




H^f^W tc tU H^t') 



by Ted Friedman (AFS) 

San Francisco -- At one time it had more 
than a dozen head shops and scores of 
boutiques dispensing nothing more fashion- 
able than beads and bells. That was in 
1967, the year of the Human Be- In at 
Golden Gate Park celebrating beards, long 
hair, bare breasts, and dope. But by 1969 
and the drunken, freaked-out orgy at San 
Francisco's Glide Memorial marking the 
"Death of Hippie," it was all over. 

For those for whom it had never begun, 
it dragged on for 'several more years of 
disillusioned pilgrimages to the Haight. 
There were interminable "warm San Francisco 
nights still to be played to inevitable con- 
clusions: rapes, rip-offs, and nightmarish 
drug freakouts. But by the seventies, the 
Haight -Ashbury, much abused symbol for the 
defunct flower child phenomenon, was a 
smoldering shell . 

Scene of mass arrests, murders, and public 
gang bangs, it was sealed off from the rest 
of the city. Except for the gravest of 
crises, the San Francisco Police were keep- 
ing hands off, waiting for the Haight to 
bum out. And burn out it did. 

Today, even though there is much talk in 
the Haight about a revival, Haight Street 
itself still has the dingy, boarded-up look 
of a disaster area. Only the hardiest have 
survived the exodus in the late sixties of 
the neighborhood's long-time residents. And 
while it would not be fair to say there is 
animosity between newcomers and the old- 
timers, some of whom have lived in the Haight 
for as long as thirty years, all the ingre- 
dients for a confrontation are present. 

There are, in fact, ominous resemblances 
between the long-gone Haight ashbury Inde- 
pendent Merchants (HIP) -- once headed by 
Ron Thelin, founder of the Psychedelic Shop, 
the Haight 's most famous head shop -- and 
Haight -Ashbury Neighborhood Development (HAND), 



one of a multitude of neighborhood improve- 
ment associations. Unlike some city -backed 
groups, HAND wants to see the Haight take up 
where it left off before all the drug pushers 
moved in. Its storefront office is a clear- 
inghouse of survival information, free uni- 
veristy course offerings, and flop spot list- 
ings, and it's the home of the Haight -Ashbury 
Switchboard. 

If not exactly flourishing, the old Haight - 
Ashbury Merchants Association, which used to 
clash daily with HIP, survives. After strug- 
gling through the -- for them -- dark days of 
flower power, they view with resentment and 
apprehension anything that smacks of utopian- 
ism. 

Commenting on a HAND proposal for a mall, 
Mendel Herscowitz, 58, Vice-President of the 
Merchants complains , "Where would we unload? 
I don't suppose those people have noticed it, 
but we don't have any alleys to receive ship- 
ments in." 

Herscowitz, who locks his cash register 
after each sale and works his hardware store 
with the help of a three-foot-tall German 
Shepherd and a baseball bat, criticizes as 
rootless the young peole who are trying to 
unite the Haight. Of one of the organizers, 
he says, "he's in his twenties with no ties; 
he can drift away as he came here, a revolu- 
tionary. What has he got to lose?" 

While the bickering continues, however, 
there are signs of health. New stores open 
regularly, most of them furniture stores, 
book stores , antique shops . And both the 
vacancy rate and the crime rate have drop- 
ped -- vacancies by 50* and crime by 68%, 
according to officials. Bus service which 
had long been discontinued has recently been 
resumed and many residents say they are no 
longer afraid to walk the streets in daylight. 

What, exactly, the Haight will become is 
anybody's guess. Before the pushers and 



other rip -off types moved in, the Haight was 
at the center of the major cultural movements 
of the sixties. It was the home of the famous 
San Francisco Oracle , considered by some the 
flashiest underground paper in the heyday of 
underground papers, and its gaudy boutiques 
and head shops once attracted tourists from 
around the world. The poster renaissance 
originated and flourished in the Haight where 
once you could buy a Jefferson Airplane or 
Grateful Dead Fillmore concert poster for ten 
or fifteen cents. They were printed in the 
Haight . 

But the printer who turned them out has 
soured on this aspect of the Haight and no 
longer prints posters. He has a few stashed 
somewhere in his office, but he'll only dis- 
cuss them with collectors. 

Perhaps in its reaction to the deflowering 
of the flower generation, the Haight continues 
to symbolize the cultural history of its time. 
The only difference between the Haight and 
other parts of the country is that the Haight 
had to live through it. Though precariously, 
it seems somehow to have survived.

A growing number of ecologically oriented 
architects and engineers believe lights are 
too bright in the U.S. They contend lighting 
standards have been set at artificially high 
levels because of pressure by utility and 
lighting industry companies who profit off 
the wasteful expenditure of energy. One 
architect, interviewed by the Wall Street 
Journal , claims lighting levels could be re- 
duced as much as 50 per cent "without threat 
of damage and that performance in school or 
on the job has never been shown to benefit 
directly from high levels of illumination." 
Critics of excessive lighting in this country 
compare the 70 foot-candle (one foot-candle 
equals the light intensity of a standard can- 
dle at a distance of one foot) lighting stan- 
dard in U.S. schools to the 10 foot -candle 
standard in Britain. 

Proponents of lower illumination levels 
assert that they would alleviate the national 
electric power shortage, conserve natural re- 
sources, and save Americans $3.5 billion a 
year in light bills . 

Something can be learned from the family 
life of the wrasse--I'm not sure exactly 
what. The wrasse is a species of fish found 
in Australia's Great Barrier Reef. Ordinarily, 
a wrasse family consists of a single male 
who lords it over a harem of three to six fe- 
males. But strange things start happening 
when the male dies, and the females are free 
of his domination. The most aggressive fe- 
male of the group begins to develop into a 
male, and after a few days, completes the at- 
tendant behavioral and physiological changes. 
The transformed female, now in every sense 
a male, then begins to function as the new 
master of the harem. 

The death penalty "may discourage a few 
potential murderers but it encourages far 
more killings." This assertion was made by 
Stanford University professor of law Anthony 
Amsterdam at a recent press conference called 
to denounce efforts to reactivate California's 
gas chambers. Two Stanford professors of 
psychiatry who agreed with Amsterdam's state- 
ment told reporters there are numerous psy- 
chological studies which demonstrate that 
"very, very, very few" killers are deterred 
by the death penalty. These are far out- 
numbered by people who commit murders in the 
hope they will be caught and executed. For 
these murderers, killing is really an act of 
suicide.

Judges have been showing an increasing re- 
cognition of prisoner's rights in the past 
year. Liberalized mail privileges, visiting 
privileges, improved sanitary and recreational 
facilities have all been ordered by the courts 
as a result of legal action by prisoners.

THE CONGLOMERATE 



The Perfect Job 

by Jeff Daiell 
Despite a balky car, spending the night 
before sleeping in a parking lot, and chan- 
ging clothes in the men's room of an office 
building, I was greatly impressed last Sat- 
urday by a conference on Careers in Commu- 
nications sponsored by the New Orleans Chap- 
ter of Women in Communications , formerly 
Theta Sigma Phi. 

The purpose of Women in Communications , 
according to Ms. Dana Stinson, Vice-Presi- 
dent for Programs of the New Orleans Chapter, 
is to broaden knowledge among members as to 
careers and occurences in journalism for fe- 
males. While they do some lobbying, says 
Ms. Stinson, who looks like a girl high 
school debator (definitely NOT a cut) with 
nice legs, and who is also Assistant Editor 
of Changing Middle South , this is not their 
main purpose or activity. 

The New Orleans Chapter held this seminar 
to help college students get ideas on careers 
in the communications field. This was their 
second; the first was held last year. 

The meeting began late; the Press Club, 
whose facilities the women were using, failed 
to open the hall early enough. There were 
several members there, about equally divided 
between traditional -looking women, gals who 
seemed to fit the stereotyped Women's Lib 
image, and those who seemed to belong to 
neither category. Ms. Stinson is not exact- 
ly a Libber --- but she knows what her am- 
bitions are and male chauvinists will find re- 
pressing her most difficult. Nice smile, too. 
She told me, as I followed her around with 
a borrowed clipboard, that the field of com- 
munications was "defintely" opening up to dis- 
taff members . As for actual discrimination, 
most if any is "not really deliberate"; and 
regarding attitudinal discrimination, there 
are "still a lot of men who feel that way"-- 
"that way" being the idea that there are 
certain things women are supposed to do, and 
no other(s). Sometimes, however, Dana pointed 
out, being a woman can be an advantage; grouch- 
es and curmudgeons will speak to\a woman where- 
as they might not to a man; rioters will turn 
courtly for a female, and cease throwing bricks 
long enough to open a door before returning to 
less chivalrous activities. 

CARRYING CAMERAS 

The conference opened with a film narrated 
by Harry Reasoner. It was called "The Jour- 
nalists". In it, Reasoner described journalism 
as ";he perfect career for a man who can't stand 
the idea of growing up and going out to work 
for a living". The film described the field of 
journalism as it involves the, young, women, and 
minorities, and how journalists end up journa- 
lists. It must be a good field for Reasoner, 
he allegedly hauled down $200,000 the last year 
he worked for CBS. He is now, of course, Howard 
K. Smith's partner for ABC news. 

The film was followed by a panel of four 
people in the communications field, 3 men and 1 
woman (infer your own inferences), representing 
the weekly press , the daily press , TV news , and 
public relations work. 

First was Joe Pewtely, who described the fun 
(and the hassles) of weekly newspaper. He shoulc 
know; he edits two. The weekly, he said, could 



afford to be less rigid and less structured than 
a daily; indeed, he rarely gave assignments, as 
his reporters mostly operated as they saw 
fit. 

He was followed by Patsy Sims , of the 
States Item and formerly Women's Editor of 
the San Francisco Chronicle . Patsy looks 
like a Libber, but sne isn't --- entirely, 
anyway. In contrast to Pewtely, who read' 
his remarks, Patsy gave her picaresque pre- 
sentation off-the-cuff, admonishing students 
to get a higher degree, if higher degree 
they get, in something other than journalism 
She suggested that they try freelancing at 
first, and that they work, especially when 
younger, on many different newspapers. Her 
one rule: observation, always observation! 
She, too, noted the occassional advantages 
to being a woman (someone else has to carry 
the cameras, for one). 



TRANSFER TO TEXAS? 

Next was Bob Krieger, an irreverent former 
professor now withWVUE-TV in New Orleans. 
Krieger filled his remarks with tales of his 
career, and also how he had "stumbled into 
news by mistake"--- actually, it was due to 
a practical joke played by a friend. TV 
news, he stressed heavily, is lots of fun. 
Also, the news departments of TV stations are 
not looking for journalists per se. It can 
be lucrative, too, with AFTRA making sure of 
that, he said. It was he who mentioned 
Reasoner 's purported 200-G salary. And Bob, 
too, mentioned the advantages of being a 
woman. And he repeated Reas oner's theme; he 
told of the time his son asked if he were ever 
going to grow up. 

The concluding speaker was Larry Norwood, 
a public relations man for South Central Bell 
with a fascinating background. His first ex- 
perience was at Baylor, where he collaborated 
in the launching of a humor magazine. "The 
humor was rather sophomoric, but that's okay, 
because we were sophomores, too." The maga- ' 
zine was shut down after five issues . Indeed, 
Baylor offered to send the responsible parties 
to the University of Texas --- "where we'd 
be more appreciated" --- and the Texas Baptist 
Convention almost withdrew $11,000,000 from 
Baylor due to the magazine (sound familiar 
Taylor?) . 

He got his first public relations job, it 
seems, while shoveling wheat (and you thought 
America was no longer the land of opportunity!), 

Norwood considers a varied experience help- 
ful. Also, he cautioned, "be prepared to 
start at the bottom". 

ON GETTING A JOB 

After that, the talk got around to Getting A 
Job In Journalism. Joe Pewtely noted that a 
list of experience or of accolades (a scrapbook, 
he called it) is not all that vital: attitude 
is more important, he said. 

Patsy Sims told students to have ideas when 
they were interviewed for a job, have things to 
want to do. Also, she said, have "samples" of 
your work ---and never try to 'snow' an editor 
as it cannot be done. 

Norwood mentioned the importance of having 
a good resume: who you are, your age, where 
you can be contacted, and experiences (includ- 
ing specifics) . both in and out of journalism: 
"let him know you're qualified." 

But, said Krieger, also let your prospective

employers know you're willing to leam. 

That essentially concluded the conference. I 
went up and spoke to Dana, Norwood, and Pewtely 
afterwards. Larry thought I was hustling him 
for a job (he had mentioned that both I and Jack 
were dressed properly for an interview, at 
which I asked him "Is that an offer?") and in- 
vited us to stay and visit with his company 
for a few days. Pewtely and I discussed the re- 
lative independence of the weekly press (rather 
great, in his case) . 

After asking the. club 's photographer for a 
few prints, and getting the entire roll of " 
negatives, and receiving a half box of Tastee 
donuts and complimentary packet of information- 
al leaflets, Jack and I left to see about crash- 
ing at Loyola University. The conference had 
made quite an impression. Journalism cer- 
tainly appears to be a fascinating, never- 
monotonous occuaption, potentially luc- 
rative and always exciting. 

It had been worth sleeping in a car 
built for midgets . 

The Chi Omegas would like to announce their

Saturday, November 11, the alums gave a 
cocktail party for the Chi Omegas at Luan 
Stoker's home. The cocktail party was fol- 
lowed by a kidnap Sunday night. The unsus- 
pecting pledges were blindfolded, put into 
a U-Haul trailer, and transported to Shreve 
Island Park. There they were treated to hot 
dogs, potato chips, toasted marshmallows , 
and rain. Everyone had a great time. 

The Chi Omegas are looking forward to 
their annual Barnyard Party this Saturday, 
November 18, and they wish everyone a "Happy 
Thanksgiving." 

*** 

At the Monday night meeting the ZTA pledges 
entertained their actives with a Thanksgiving 
skit. Leta Scherer starred as the turkey, 
Dana Johnson as the narrator, and Kay Gilbrech 
as Kay. The rest of the pledges played sup- 
porting roles. A pancake supper will be an 
additional goodie that the pledges are spon- 
soring for the active members of ZTA. This 
event will take place Sunday night, Nov. 19. 

The ZTA Alumnae Candv and Candle Sale was 
Thursday the 16th. The' Zetas wish to thank 
everyone who patronized the sale.

Monday, Nov. 13, the annual TKE Big-Little 
Brother Paddle Party occurred. It has been 
reported that everyone had a walloping good 
time! 

This Saturday night the ghosts of TKE' s 
long since dead 'n buried, as well as living 
TKE's, dates, and guests, will converge at 
the chapter lodge for a Graveyard Party. The 
members who survive the night's festivities 
will participate, or at least attend, the 
TKE active-pledge football game (which was 
postponed last Sunday) this Sunday afternoon 
at 3:00 p.m. on Hardin Field. 

The Order of Diana, composed of mothers 
wives, and girlfriends of the members of Tau 
Kappa Epsilon fraternity, has initiated three 
new members. They are Susie Gates, Susan 
Schaeffer, and Pattie Overstreet. Officers 
for the year are Debbie Price, president- 
Karen Anderson, treasurer; Linda Alagood 
recording secretary and Kathy Hickerson, cor- 
responding secretary. 



Last Sunday Kappa Lambda, a national clas- 
sical club for Latin students, held its first 
meeting of the school year at the home of 
and Mrs. J. C. Curlin. After an informal 
supper the officers for 1972-73 were elected. 
They are Sara Kay Johnson, President, Jeff 
Hendricks, Vice-President, Susan Fulton, Sec- 
retary, and Janet Colbert, Treasurer.

Scouting Report (IV) 



by Tom Marshall 



Editor's note: This is the last of a four-part 
series of columns that have examined the Cen- 
tenary varsity basketball outlook for the up- 
coming 1972-73 season. Furthermore, this is 
the last edition of the CONGLOMERATE before 
the Gents open their season against South- 
western of Texas in the Gold Dome on Tuesday, 
November 28. 

FINAL REPORT 

"We're definitely pointing towards one 
ball game- -the opener against Southwestern 
Texas." That's the word from Larry Little 
and the Centenary basketball program at two 
weeks and counting before the Gents ' first 
game. 

"We feel like we've got most of the con- 
ditioning and teaching material behind us 
now," said Little Wednesday in his Gold 
Dome office, adding, "but we still have to 
sharpen up on all phases of the game in 
these last two weeks. The main focus of 
our work now will be on specific game 
situations --for example, jump balls, out- 
of-bounds plays, stall games- -things like 
that." 

"Right now we're looking forward to our 
intrasquad game this coming Tuesday since it 
will provide us with our first opportunity 
to play before the public this year." That 
scrimmage is set for Tuesday, November 21, 
at 7:30 p.m. in the Gold Dome. 

With the opener against the Georgetown, 
Tex. school drawing closer, naturally Little 
has his club's first opponents on his mind. 
"Southwestern is going to be an extremely 
well -coached team. Billy Tubbs--an assistant 
at Lamar University for a number of years -- 
will have his team ready. On top of that, 
they will have already played four games be- 
fore they come to Shreveport. That is a 
tremendous difference- -I know we'll be bet- 
ter in our fifth ball game than in the opener- - 
so that certainly applies to them also." 

What's the scouting report on the Pirates? 
"They're not a big club," offers little, "but 
they've got real good speed. At this point 
that's about all we know about them, but • 
we'll have an opportunity to scout them be- 
fore the game." 

Little is very
