The funeral is seen as the climactic life experience, to be celebrated by dancing, drinking, and storytelling. During the pre-Civil War years, this heritage became uniquely American in application. Blacks paid dues to secret societies which guaranteed a styl- ish departure to the deceased. Multiple membership in these secret societies meant more music, faster dancing, and tastier food would comfort those left behind, giving a man an opportunity to achieve a prestige in death which had eluded him in life. As lelly Roll Morton summarized, " Rejoice at the death, and cry at the birth, " and this rejoicing inevi- tably included one or more brass bands. Once the cieceased was left to his final rest, the mourning and spiritual hymns ended, arid ragtime took over as the mourners danced their way home. IncJeed, if you ' ve never been to a jazz funeral, you have missed the experience of a lifetime. On March 22, 1978, native New Orleanian, jazz clarinetist Louis Cotrell died. On March 27, his family, fn( ncis, and admirers celebrated his life. As the serv- . ice, progressed, the crowd outside St. Louis Cathedral .lx?iga:n; jo -grow. When the service ended, anci the churtb-ertiptied, the crowc) multiplied to nearly 2,000 people 42 student life . f " • . -■•■1 ? The Onward Brass Band formed a semicircle in front of the church. As the sounds of the funeral dirge filled the air, people craned their necks to see the clergy, pallbearers and casket, and the family silently make their way through the crowd to the black lim- ousines awaiting them. The limousines began their slow trek followed by King Zulu of 1975, Alfred A. VVashington Sr, dressed in traditional yellow garb, carrying a Zulu umbrella. The three men behind him were dressed in black tai|s and top hats, with flowers and banners draped over their shoulders. They strutted slowly to the beat of the band behind them. The procession marched in somber reverence for ten blocks until the band parted to line both sides of the street and play their last farewell to musician Louis Cotrell, as the limou- sines departed for the cemetery. Suddenly, honky-tonk filled the air. Dancing fol- lowers, recruited from the crowd, sauntered along with the band as it returned to the church. Kids did somersaults and flips in the street. It was Mardi Gras all over again, and the friends and admirers of Louis Cotrell shared a special bond of joy and celebration. Laughter and gaity abounded and everyone made their way home feeling good about Louis, and good about life. 44 student life i(uili ' nt life 45 t6 student life New Orleans experienced the worst flooding on record when over 10 ' 2 inches fell in a twenty-four hour period on May 2-3. With much of it under water, the city and the surrounding areas virtually came to a standstill. Thousands of homes on the Westbank lost their electricity and water services. All public transportation in the city was halted. In fact, several of the public buses loaded with passengers became stranded in the flooded streets for as long as 8 hours. At least five casualties were recorded as a result of the flooding. Several of these lost their lives when they drove into a navigation or drainage canal, unable to determine where the road ended and the canal began. Count- less numbers of homes and businesses were flooded, with dam- ages estimated at well over 100 million dollars. Long-time resi- dents of the city were reported as saying that even Hurricane Betsy, which hit New Orleans in 1%5, did not cause as much flooding. In the Uptown area the floodwaters became so high that the rain gauge at Audubon park broke down after it became sub- merged in water. Residents began using boats to travel to grocery stores to get needed food and supplies. On the Tulane campus, at least one resourceful student was seen paddling his way down Newcomb Place in a canoe while on his way to the library. Many of the students living off campus were unable to get out of their apartments and missed taking their exams. And, many students found their car engines disabled after the flood waters receded. Although the magnitude of the flooding was unusual, many parts of city, including areas on and around campus, frequently are flooded whenever there is a heavy rain. As David Lynd, Super- intendent of Building Services and Grounds put it, " If men today were planning to build a city they probably would not consider the area where New Orleans is located. " Student life 47 TU 48 Student Life TUT. . .TUT-O-MANIA It entered the city in a flourish of Egyptian splendor. For many months New Orleans had waited and prepared tor this occasion. Now it was here; the " Treasures of Tutankhamun " had arrived! Not only was the city itself ready to handle the thousands of tourists expected, but the merchants were more than ready to capitalize on the event! Overnight, books, posters, and T-shirts appeared in shop windows throughout the metropolis. Few people knew more about the event than the fact that it was the treasures of a boy-king, and that the lines would be long. How- ever, there was much more to Tut than people knew. The exhibit was given to the United States by Egypt as a trib- ute to the Bicentennial. Upon its return to Cairo, the treasures will have been displayed in this country for IVi years. New Orle- ans was the third stop, and the only one in the South. In addi- tion to the negotiations made to get the exhibit to New Or- leans, much work was done to accommodate the exhibit, and the people who arrived to see it. Eight-hundred thousand arrived, the largest crowd to date. Franklin Adams, an art professor at Newcomb, was responsi- ble for designing the arrangement of the exhibition in the New Orleans Museum of Art. The two-part show contained pictures of the expedition to recover Tut ' s possessions, as well as the objects themselves. Adams was praised for his excellent arrange- ment of the exhibit. But, just what were the " Treasures of Tutankhamun? " What were these 3,300-year-old objects people waited hours to view? The answer was quickly found upon entering the museum, as the story of one of the world ' s greatest excavations was unfolded. On November 4, 1922, FHoward Carter, an English archaeolo- gist, uncovered the stairs which led to the greatest archaeologi- cal find of all time — the tomb of King Tut. Carter began his excavation in 1918 after receiving the patronage of Lord Carnar- von of England. In a last attempt to prove his theory, Carter dis- covered the tomb six years later. The treasures of King Tul were consi(iered invaluable by the ar[ world because of their excellent condition (an oicurrence due to the inability of grave robbers to find the lomb) and because the tr( asures rc presenled artwork from the most c re- alive phase of Egyptian art history (I 5S-I 510 B.C.). Tutankhamun was unique in yet another way; he was the youngest pharaoh to ascend the throne of Egypt, a mere len- yoar-old! Tut also became the youngest king to die while in power; he was nineteen. I he discovery took the world by surprise, and Mi((( ' c(l( d in .illc( ling everything from the ineni.i In arc hilcc Uiic. Studenl Life 49 Today, the exhibit has affected the United States in much the same manner; Tut-o-mania has struck the country full force. For the New Orleans presentation alone, an obelisk was erected in front of the museum; the driveway leading to the museum was painted blue and green to become the " Noma Nile. " Striped tents were provided for waiting spectators, and special " Egyptian " foods, such as " Camel Cola " and " Tut Burgers, " were offered. But this was only a beginning! Department store windows were decorated to look like Egyptian deserts, pyramids, and various other landscapes. Banners hung from Canal Street poles; movie theatres advertised the latest Egyptian flick, and local bars created exotic new drinks. Tut was everywhere! Clothing became sparkled with gold and draped in the style of Cleopatra, not to mention the safari ensembles, and " Cleo " hairstyles. Jewelry was also altered to appear more in the " Tut tradition " : heavy gold topped with either jade or scarabs. But that wasn ' t all; many events such as Halloween, balls, and dances donned the face of Tut as their theme. Yes, Tutankhamun was certainly the cultural event of the year. The popularity of the exhibit seemed to spread like a fever to every corner of the city. It might be said th at Tut, the child king, finally received the pomp and ceremony he long deserved, for the whole country was swept up in the fury of Tut-O-Mania!!! — Mary Aton 50 Student Life Student I ife 51 The Cemeteries New Orleans cemeteries have to be one of the most unusual things about one of America ' s most unusual cities. When approaching the city by car on the Interstate, many elaborate monu- ments and tombs are visible. There are over 31 cemeteries in the city which boast interesting architecture in the design of memorials. Possibly nowhere else in the country would locals recom- mend sightseeing in a cemetery. 52 Student Life .i«.rM;l-V All the dead are buried above ground since the soil is so low and swampy. There are gruesome stories about the early days when all burials were below ground. Caskets were lowered into pools of oozing mud. Fre- quently, the coffin would capsize as water seeped inside. Worst of all, when there were heavy rainstorms, th( newly buried, half decomposed cadavers wouici surface above ground. To remedy this unpleasant situation, tombs above ground were begun. New Orleanians have always had a flair for the (Jramalic , and when it came to their bur- ial chambers it was no different. Many of the rich Creole families imported French archi- tects to build cldborate monuments of Italian m iri)le as memorials to their deceased ones ancJ themselves. The architecture ranged from Classical Creek and Egyptian styles to High Romance and Gothic, The wealthy planlors knew they coukln ' l take their money with Ihcm, t)Ul tho y were going to be damn sure thai everyone knew they once had il. Student Life 53 The tombs in the older cemeteries have no order to their arrangement and you can get the feeling of being caught in a maze when trying to find any sort of path. Little or no grass grows in these older cemeteries and the only shrubbery to be seen is grow- ing on top or out of some of the tombs themselves. Although today many of the tombs have deteriorated, these cities of the dead remain as a fitting tribute to a New Orle- ans past. 1 O t » . « ■ « . 1 i ) ft«i k c f4 J B, yjl WTm. 1 LOUISIANA JHH f H ' T -- ° i i£i ' -s«.

Blacks, whites, Chicanos, they came to the New Orleans Hilton on this breezy November evening, and they danced and drank and shouted " Dutch, Dutch, Dutch. " They wanted to become a part of this political upset, and savor the victory of their candidate. Ernest " Dutch " Morial had just become the first black mayor in New Orleans his- tor . And now they could celebrate. It wasn ' t easy, however. )ust one week prior to the elec- tion the Fifth United States Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Morial was " ineligible " to run for mayor because he had not resigned his judgeship. Three days later, though, the decision was reversed by a higher court which pointed out that Morial should be allowed to run because of a court order issued in February which overturned state court rules. It was prohibiting judges from running for office. Moriai ' s opponent in the run-off elections, Joseph DiRosa, ran on the usual platform of no new taxes, more police on the streets, tougher crime laws, etc. Heavily sup- ported by the older political organization in the city, DiRosa claimed he was the " people ' s choice. " Morial made no such claims. He didn ' t have to. Realizing that the only way to improve New Orleans ' miserable pub- lic school system was through higher taxes, Morial said if that is what it takes, then new taxes it will be! No fudging here. " Dutch " just wanted to be " up front " with the peo- ple, and the people, he found, appreciated his courageous manner. Some New Orleanians, to be sure, may have found Mor- ial to be a courageous man, but that didn ' t convince them that New Orleans should have a black mayor. In fact, the most asked question in the fall was, " Is New Orleans ready for a black mayor? " The question, however, should have been, " Is New Orleans ready for a reasonable and respon- sible mayor who will represent all of the people? " In the end, the Morial team had the last laugh, but the race issue had been drummed into everyone ' s mind. Local media coverage centered around such facts as numbers of white and black registered votes, results of black mayors in other cities, and the campaign emphasis on one ethnic group or another. Needless to say, Moriai ' s victory proved the Deep South had come of age. — Brad Steitz Student Life 61 PURPLE PASSION PLAY It ' s a spring afternoon and I ' m in the vegetated state that too often results from " The Final " final. At last I ' m out! Escaped the penitentiary of academia unscathed; overjoyed as a cucumber when the vegamatic breaks. Alas — the real world. Stumbling from Gibson Hall, I try to get hold of myself; a vain attempt to collect the few shattered thoughts that swim in what is left of my (alleged) mind. Snap, crackle, pop! My misfiring synapses in imitation of a breakfast cereal. Aha! It ' s starting to come together. I remember that we ' re having a " school ' s out " party tonight, and I ' m assigned to procure — Supplies! But where to find: hormone pills altimeter whit its K-Y jelly Alka Seltzer Barf bags munchies booze? My mind begins to clear ... I ' m beginning to wonder just where in the hell I am. The fog is dissolving. Like a pur- ple knight, I see the shining sign of " Your Friendly K B. " I enter. I wonder, why is everything purple? If all of this purple isn ' t a joke, then why am I laughing? Am I laughing? The store is flushed full of it. No doubt some nouveau riche ploy for identification with royalty. No longer funny, it is as if I am being overwhelmed by some subliminal force. An urge — no — a command! A command to buy, buy, buy! My hands move, uncontrolled by my consciousness. I am dropping items into my purple shopping cart with reckless abandon: Pyrex baby bottles, genuine plastic handcuffs, heavy duty trash bags. Good Seasons Salad Dressing, a gallon of bleach, two-dozen skeins of knitting yard. I fight the impulse. The mental struggle with the neu- rotic urge leaves me gasping for breath. Nausea begins to sweep over me. Aha! My hands have developed a new strategy. Medicine! Aisles and aisles of purple shelves of purple bottles of medicine. The heavier ones shatter as they are thrust against the purple stainless steel of my cart! — Suddenly! I regain control. Something catches my eye . . .identification. . . I am thrust quickly back into reality. They are marvelous purple invitations that I realize I must have for tonight ' s party. The party! I get plenty — five gross. To the purple invitations I add cheese, and crackers with the cutest purple flecks. At the liquor counter I reach for the K B brand alcohol. Purple labels on non-descript colored liquids. The price seems right. A quick calculation confirms my estimate that 75c worth per person will insure annihilation. I have heard the legends of K B booze, but load my cart, wildly. I remind myself of its various other household uses: cleaning hair brushes and, diluted, as a leather cleaner. I read the back label on one bottle: " It has been determined by the Surgeon General that caution must be used to avoid contact with open cuts, sores, hair, or clothing. When cleaning leather, excess liquid must be removed immedi- ately in order to avoid scars and pitting. " Yes, I think. This is just the stuff. I ' m in the checkout line. 62 Student Life Between the Kaybeline " Lip Gloss " and the Kayboy Magazine, I notice the KayBee Early Pregnancy Detection Device. The price seems reasonable, I take five. Through the electric, grape-colored doors steps Melanie Young. She must come to the party tonight. We talk. Her eyes are glazed a deep violet, and I can tell that we are in tune. " Look, " she says. We see several other young women from the campus who seem non-plussed by the entire atmosphere. Three of them stand in the next line, each holding a carton of TAB and a tube of Preparation " K. " I shrug my shoulders questioningly. " Wrinkles, " she assures me. " It shrinks pores and tightens up skin. " The cashier nods in agreement, smiling broadly, the same white teeth and the single, star-shaped crown as the infamous " Rat-Lady. " She begins to laugh. Quietly at first, building to a great crescendo of guffaws. I panic, must escape. I think. The nausea again. I head for the grape-colored doors. The lights . . . I can feel the heat ... I sweat, and wipe purple beads of perspi- ration from my brow. I feel Melanie ' s hand on my shoulder and I know that she is laughing too. Her hand, the sheer weight of it drives me to the floor. I purple out! — Steve Weil LIFESTYLES mm Campus Life 66 Student Life . ' l - .. J VSCtl. ; V4,v?, ;•- •i? Student life 67 CONFRONTING COED LIVING Thirty-eight freshman girls co-existed on one floor of the dorm. Two-hundred and sixty-six girls occupied the build- ing — a conglomeration of female minds neatly tucked away in their assigned cubicles. Of course men were allowed to invade the female territory, but on our floor there was a twelve hour limitation. Evidently, some parents and administrators believed that if the time limit was vio- lated, students would become overwhelmed by sexual desires, and rampant promiscuity would result. At any rate, the girls were never allowed to determine when men could be admitted. While there was little open protest, it did seem contrary to the philosophy that college was the place where young adults learned the meaning of freedom and responsibility. Well, that was freshman year, and before I knew it, I was a sophomore in a coed dorm. There was, of course, the hassle of convincing my parents that coed dorms were not dens of sexual activity. After all, I argued, neighborhoods are not segregated by sex, and our young neighbors were certainly not lusting after one another. In fact, real life is simply not partitioned into men ' s living space and wom- en ' s living space. My parents reluctantly accepted my argu- ments, but only after expressing their reservations on the moral stability of my entire generation. I headed back to school feeling rebellious. I had defied my parents ' standards. I was anxious to get on with the business of living — with real live men. Arriving at Paterson dormitory, I hastily moved into room 124 and discovered that my neighbor across the hall was female. She was a junior engineering student and a veteran of one year ' s coed living. She seem ed fairly talka- tive and I felt comfortable enough to reveal my curiosity. " I thought Paterson was a coed dorm, " I began, trying not to sound too forward. She stared, and matter-of-factly replied, " I haven ' t seen any guys around, if that ' s what you mean. " " You mean they don ' t live here? " I said, completely dis- mayed. " Allegedly, they occupy third floor and some of the suites outside, but they don ' t mix much with the girls on the hall. " " Well then, what ' s the point of living in a coed dorm? " " You gotta live somewhere, " she replied curtly. 68 Student Life Was that all that was behind " progressive coed living? " I wasn ' t satisfied, " Is Irby like Paterson? I thought Irby was supposed to be a good coed dorm, or at least better than Paterson? " I thought my views on coed housing could be salvaged. I knew lrb was sexually integrated. I placed my last hopes on Irbv ' s reputation. She began to get impatient with my inquiry and replied sarcastically that she couldn ' t know, since she ' d never lived there. She did condescend to intro- duce me to her roommate, a three year veteran of dormi- tory living w ho had spent two years at Irby. I repeated b - question about Irbv, but I couldn ' t tell if she was listening to me or the Dylan album on her stereo. On my third try, she seemed to comprehend and turned down the olume in order to answer v ' ithout screaming. " Irby is a real fine dorm. I mean, Paterson is desolation row com- pared to Irby. In essence, Paterson is pseudo-coed, whereas, Irby is ihe real thing. Of course, just liv- ing in Irby doesn ' t mean girls will meet more guys. People live in suites, so you still have to make an effort to meet your neighbors. " Much relieved, I asked, " Do people do it? Do people get to know each other? Do men and women live together as friends? " My enthusiasm was building, but she seemed rather bored with the subject. " If you ' re looking for someone to tell you that coed dorms are social Utopias, it ain ' t me, babe. I ' m not going to be the one to tell you Ihat. " " You mean, you didn ' t like Irby? " " o, I thought it was the best Tulane had to offer, but I ' m not sure it was as coed as it could have been. Look, it ' s like this: You have lo realize that nothing is as good as it ' s supposed to be. If you want coed life, move to Irby. " " Well, if Irby is so much better, Ihan why are you living at Pater- son? " " Simple twist of fate, " she said, turning up Ihe volume for " Tan- gled Up In Blue. " I took the less Ihan subtle him and headed for lhedor;r. Thus my initial experience with coed life began disappointingly. As Ihe year prrjgressed, I noticed a change had come over my hall. The male population seemed to increase. How- ever, housing had nothing to do with it. Cerlain rooms just happened to acquire a third roommate. In fact, four of len rrxjms harJ a male resident. from Ihal semester on, I realized thai whether or not a dorm was called coed was siriclly a function of University policy. When students want lo cohabilale, they cohabi- taie. I srwn dismissed my thoughts on coed life. College sfems lo provide more Ihan enough existential dilemmas. However, when ASB elections were announr ed, thr ' cfjed controversy resurfaced. One of the candidates fr-li rjbli gated to prf.»mise panaceas for all ills and inclufJeci an •nr reasf- in r r;ed rJorms as part of his lif kr-i ' s platform. His major emphasis was on Ihe library, but evidently he real- •zed Ihat education extended beyond Ihe academic sphere, I decided lo press Ihe issue, so I asked, " What difference L. : . . ' - does it really make if we have coed dorms or not? As long as students have a room, what difference does it make who lives above him, below him, or next door? " The candidate carefully straightened his tie, composing himself before answering. " Our university, being the fine university that it is, also has fine students. Now I ' ve polled these students and they want coed dorms, so I think it ' s a good idea to provide more coed living. " Feeling as though he had failed to address himself to my question, I posed the same query to his opponent. Attempting to appear more casual, and " in-tune " with the average student, he began slowly, " I understand what you ' re saying. I ' ve lived in the dorms here for four years. I ' ve noticed that there is a distinct schism between the guys and girls here. The girls have the mystique of being Newcomb bitches, the boys are , known as inept clods who lack fJK I class. I think more coed dorms TuB I would help the students overcome ' ' ' • B 1 these stereotypes. By living together, you get a feel for the day-to-day problems. You don ' t just see someone ' s carefully groomed Saturday night appear- ance, " No doubt, this candidate had a plausible explanation. Coed dorms could be the panacea for all Tulane ' s social problems. People would see each other as real peo- ple, doing real life things like clip- ping toe nails and flossing teeth. (A bit like Blake ' s argument which contended that even Divine Angels had to use the bathroom.) Living together would undoub- tedly help us to see each other in a different light. I felt I had finally obtained the ultimate understanding of coed dorms. With this new insight, I could comprehend why they were called ' coed ' dorms. Coed is an abbreviation for coeducational, and an institution wouldn ' t be called that unless people of both sexes learned something. Returning to my room after the candidates ' forum, I noticed Mon- roe and Sharp. For the first time, I contemplated Ihe number of male human beings enclosed in the neatly stacked, box-like rooms. For all those residents, coed dorms were an irrelevant subject. For all its former mystique, the essence of coed living seems beneficial. For the student in quest of a critical cam- pus issue, coed life has lost most of its controversial com- ponents. Parents and administrators now know that stu- dents can live and learn in inl( grated facilities, not as promiscuous adolescents, but as responsible adults. — Alice Oppenheim Student Life 69 70 Student Life student Life 71 SEX ON CAMPUS It ' s 2:00 A.M. and you ' re standing at the front door of ).L. — just having returned from a night on the town, begin- ning with dinner at Commander ' s Palace and ending with one too many Hurricanes at Pat O ' s. As your date stumbles up the steps, the moment you ' ve been waiting for all eve- ning approaches. You shut your eyes, pucker up and turn rapturously toward her anticipating an endless night of revelry. Suddenly something brushes your cheek and with a brief, " Thanks for the evening, " leaving you alone and bewildered as you return to Monroe through the cold damp night. Sound familiar? If it does, you ' re not alone. This appears to be the general consensus, according to a Jambalaya sur- vey conducted this semester of Tulane ' s " liberated males " looking for warm emotional relationships with, what they perceive to be, Newcomb ' s cold, callous females. The Newcomb girls, on the other hand, seem quite satis- fied with their sex-life at Tulane. Most have steady boy- friends and are oblivious to the frustrated males remaining. The Jambalaya distributed surveys to 200 students at ran- dom through campus mail, on the sexual values and prac- tices at Tulane. The respondents ' ages ranged from 18 to 25. Of the 35 students responding, 17 were females and 18 males. Three males and three females reported that they were virgins. The remaining 29 lost their virginity anywhere from ages 12-19, the average age being 16. Although a few found that their first sexual experience lived up to their expectations, the majority were disap- pointed and found subsequent sexual encounter more sat- isfying. The questions in the survey included such topics as promiscuity, the double standard, sexual partners, the sex- ual revolution, and the sexual atmosphere at Tulane. The first category dealt with sexual obligations and pref- erences. Most of the male respondents stated that they did not expect any form of sex in return for a particularly expensive date. " No! That ' s prostitution — if I really want it, I know where to get it, not on a date however. " Senior, Male, Virginia. " I only work on a mutual ' Lefs F — ' basis. If she is a ' gold digger, ' I don ' t want her anyway! What ' s money got to do with it? I ' d get a whore if it was for money. " Sophomore, Male, Delaware. " Sometimes, it depends if I ' m after the girl or she ' s ' just a friend ' (not necessarily meaning intercourse). " Senior, Male, New York. However, a few felt that they should be sexually rewarded for money spent. " Yes, but not necessarily in proportion to the amount spent. " Grad., Male, Alabama. " By any form of sex . . . yes . . . at least a good night kiss. I don ' t expect to be treated as a stranger. " Grad., Male, New Orleans. " No, I won ' t spend a lot of money unless I know I ' m gonna get it. " Sophomore, Male, New Jersey. Many of the female respondents felt they were expected to have sex with men who spent a lot of money on them. " don ' t feel obligated, but I think guys think I feel, or should feel that way. " Freshman, Female, Texas. " No, I don ' t feel obligated, but sometimes I feel guilty and I think my date expects me to feel obligated. " Freshman, Female, Missouri. " No, I used to and it ' s still an uncomfortable feeling, but assertion! " Senior, Female, Florida. 72 ' STUDtNT LIFE " No, I ' ve never made any sort of promises that hinged on mv date spending ' x ' numbers of dollars on me. That ' s ridiculous! I ' m from a very Southern family, brought up to be put on a ' pedestal! ' If a date wants to spend a great deal of money on me that ' s fine (I ' ll enjoy it!) but a walk in the park can mean just as much, or even more when you ' re enjoying yourselves without pretenses. " Freshman, Female, Georgia. When asked to number the following in order of their importance to sex, the most popular configuration appears here. 1. being in love 2. friendship 3. romance 4. passion 5. non-romantic love (deep caring) 6. long-term commitment (marriage) Both sexes seemed to feel that an emotional commit- ment was desirable in sexual relations. People expressed distaste for one-night stands and with almost all finding them mentally dissatisfying. The large majority of females had never had a one night stand and had no desire to expe- rience one. While all of the sexually experienced males had had them, most found them degrading and were looking for more emotional involvement. " For me, a lot of times it ' s more trouble than it ' s worth, or it ' s embarrassing to find out what you ' ve done after you ' ve gotten loaded the night before. But there are excep- tions when a strange series of events can lead up to a one night stand which becomes very memorable. " Grad., Male, New Orleans. " One night stands are not satisfying in any way, if fact, I think they can make a person feel used. " Sophomore, Female, Alabama. " They are satisfying physically, but mentally they create more havoc than the physical pleasure merits. " Freshman, Female, Texas. " Physically, there are certain tensions and anxieties that are best relieved through orgasm. There is also something attractive about having sex with someone you probably won ' t see again. The one night stand offers both of these. Succinctly, one night stands are chances for physically gratifying ' no hassle sex. ' Mentally, if you haven ' t used any kind of contraceptive, you get a little worried about pregnancy. Also, both of you have to understand that, after il ' i over, you expect nothing else. If this isn ' t understood, you have obviously conned the girl into sleeping with you and you might feel guilty when you don ' t ' call her ' as you promised. She will feel like a sucker when you don ' t call her, and the next time you run into each other it may he embarrassing. Chances are you ' ll never he friends af ain. After one or two one nighlers you begin to realise how stupid it all is, and you start going to a bar to talk to women rather than pick them up. " Senior, Male, Virginia. " Yes, in the past two years, I have totally abandoned the taboos of conventional morality, except in the areas of incest, sex with children, and marital infidelity. I have replaced this list of don ' ls with an ethical formulation that iays, in short: Mature sex is good. Immature, unemotional iex is not. Sex, as relief only, is not ethical, but I make it the individual ' s decision as to when sex is truly an expression of caring. Of cc urse most will decide wrong. " lunior, Male, Dallas. When asked whether they were sal isf iff) with ihcir (jrcs ent sex lives, the replies were varied. " No, the general atmosphere at Tulane plays all those pretty games with sex, and it is hard to cut through them in initial encounters. It doesn ' t seem like too many men would like, or be able to handle, sexual friendship. " Freshman, Female, Texas. " Yes, because plenty of sex is available to me at all times, and I make all of my own decisions. " Senior, Female, Miss. " No, it ' s not that I don ' t have girlfriends, it ' s just that they ' re not too horny and I like women on the warmer side. Newcomb has a lot of cold, frigid, bitches. " Sophomore, Male, Delaware. " I am completely satisfied because my boyfriend is older than I am and is experienced. Therefore he knows how to please me. He also loves me and it is nice to be able to share our emotions through sex. " Sophomore, Female, Alabatna. " Once you have some experience behind you, consist- ency and skill become more important than frequency. " Senior, Male, Virginia. " No, how many ' well hung ' males do you see around here? I ' m horny, but I ' ll live. " Senior, Female, Florida. The final and perhaps most encompassing question con- cerned the existence of the sexual revolution and its effects at Tulane. Those polled were asked to write a brief essay on the topic. " The sexual revolution tried to accomplish too many things in too short a time, thus it overstepped itself and became unreasonable. Now there is a tendency to return to past values, including fidelity, etc., so that things are back where they started from. This is not exactly true, because now there is an awareness. People are aware of bad sexual values and are trying to change them. So there is greater equilibrium. " Sophomore, Female, Conn. " Yes, I think there has been a sexual revolution, just as there has been a revolution in every other major issue in the late sixties and early seven- ties. By revolution, I mean a major change in attitudes which happened very quickly; so quickly that we are still recover- ing. Due to radical methods used, society did not have time to adjust to its changing moral- ity and was thrown directly into a hard-core world full of sex, drugs, rock, and chaos. Only now are we beginning to realize that being aware of our own sexuality is not shown by f- everything in sight. Fmotionless sex is not a catharsis of the same feelings through mere orgasm, as through sex with feeling. I think the overall revolution has been good. When people finally reach an equilibrium they will not be prudish, having already experienced freedom, but will be open and able to accept sex and use it advantageously, with- out abusing it. Right now, the gay revolution is a few steps behind the sexual revolution in that, while ' coming out of the closet, ' gays are taking advantage of their new found freedom through promiscu- ity " ' ' junior. Female, New York. " Sexual activity has always existed, it ' s just talked about more now. It has always been O.K. to screw, but has been taboo to discuss openly sexual preferences, hang-ups, etc. The so-called ' revolution ' has allowed us to relax these restric lions somewhat.

" Because there is so much more in the media about it, people are much more aware of the need for physical fitness. " For some running is an effective way to lose weight and get in shape. For others, running provides the opportunity to escape the humdrum realities of the everyday 9-5 rou- tine. For still others, jogging is a means of getting a " natural high. " The " high " is a recognized side-effect of running, espe- cially among long distance runners. " This one guy I know, " said Paul Martilin, a former Tulane student, " runs for euphoria. After 45 minutes of running, he gets into this euphoric trance-like state and runs for another 45 minutes without feeling any physical stress or pain. " " It ' s never happened to me, " added Martilin, " but I keep trying. " In this same genre of joggers are those who run to reju- venate their minds. " I ' m cooped up in a windowless, flourescent room all day, " said Vickie Obermeyer, a Loyola student. " When you get out and run, you listen to your rhythm and breathing. You really get into yourself. I guess it ' s sort of an escape. " Most joggers agree that running is a solitary experience. In fact, one of the advantages of the sport is that, as one avid jogger put it, " you don ' t need a buddy. " Running alone allows the joggers to pace themselves, achieve their own limits and concentrate on their own body movements and rhythms. Curiously, however, group jogging in the forms of clubs, teams, classes and meets is becoming increasingly popular. One such club is the New Orleans Track Club. The pri- mary purpose of the club is to schedule competitions each week in or primarily around the New Orleans area. Cindy Yost, a Newcomb Physical Education teacher, is a member because " it ' s something to work for each week. It ' s an incentive to jog regularly during the week. " " It ' s also a social thing. A chance to meet lots of people — especially guys, " she added. Greg Keller, another Audubon regular and a student from UNO, confirms the social aspect of running. " I run mainly for the exercise, but I have a few friends whose only reason for running in Audubon Park is that it ' s a great way to pick up girls. " Student life 07 FEATURES Historic Landmarks © A special certificate noting many of the Uni- versity ' s buildings as historic places was pre- sented April 26 by Charles Herrington, a 1964 Tulane graduate and Chief of Registration of the National Register of Historic Places, Heritage Conservation and Recreation Service, and U.S. Department of the Interior. The historic preservation distinction, gives the university national recognition for its build- ings and, as private property, opportunity to receive certain kinds of grants and loans for res- toration purposes. In addition, under the 1976 Tax Reform Act, educational properties listed on the register 90 Student Life recei e tax incentives to restore and maintain cited buildings from what is termed " unsym- pathetic alteration. " According to Bernard Lemann, emeritus pro- fessor of Architecture at Tulane, " the campus has an interesting variety of architectural styles and at the same time, partly because of land- scaping, its complex as a whole holds together consistently and comfortably as a place for study. In announcing the designation for most of the university ' s buildings on the main quadrangle and on the Newcomb College campus. Herring- ton explained that the University sought the honor through the assistance of the state. " This is unusual, " he said, " in that it shows interest on Tulane ' s part in preserving its herit- age and in maintaining its fine old buildings and its campus for the American people. " It shows leadership in preservation efforts among educational institutions, " he said. rrr A - ' .-Mill ' Si 1 1 ffi ' ai ' I! r [ l t JULii student life ' f I what Ever Happened to the Class of ' 68 In 1968, the rallying cry on campus was " Student Power, " as protest marches, mass rallies, pickets, and petitions expressing students ' displeasure with the Vietnam War characterized the year. The Howard Tilton Library was near completion; Tulane ' s President was Her- bert Longenecker; and the varsity football team had a 3-7 season in the 67-68 aca- demic year. The president of the Student Senate and his executive staff resigned amidst controversy, while the editor-in- chief of the Hullabaloo was censored by the administration for printing objectiona- ble language. Because of their overt political involve- ment, and unconventional lifestyles, col- lege students of the ' 60 ' s are regarded by many contemporary college students as a romantic era of sorts. Eight individuals who were Tulane students in 1968 were contacted and asked to reflect upon their college years, post-graduate activities, and campus political experiences in order that we might discover — What ever happened to the class of ' 68? In 1968, Gary K. Barker was Chairman of CACTUS. Today, he is editor of the Courier lournal and Times in Louisville, Kentucky. While at Tulane, he also served as Hullaba- loo columnist and editor, was assistant editor of the lambalaya in his senior year, and was elected a student senator. Barker found the Vietnam War to be a " very disturbing " issue, and because of the war, he felt that " college seemed disrupt- ing and distracting. " Shortly after gradua- tion, he was drafted and sent to school to learn to be a Russian interpreter, keeping him from the jungles of Vietnam. If Barker had the opportunity to start college anew, he would " definitely go back to Tulane. " James M. Ciaravella, M.D., graduated from the Medical School in ' 68. Originally from the New Orleans area, he received his B.S. in Zoology from Tulane in ' 64. He was Rush Chairman and Treasurer for Pi Kappa Alpha, was on the track team as a senior, and was a member of the Tulane Spirit Club. After graduation from Medical School, Ciaravella joined the Air Force as a physician. Specializing in thoracic car- diovascular surgery, he was later chief resident for Tulane at Charity. In 1978, he is a Special Fellow of cardiovascular surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and plans to join the pediatric division of the National Medical Center of George Washington University. " Tulane, " says Dr. Ciaravella, " has a good name. " He believes Tulane helped him acquire his faculty position, and that most of his associates know of and respect Tulane and the training in Charity Hospital. A ' 68 graduate in Political Science, John W. Devlin is now a practicing private attorney in Houston, Texas. In early 1972, he received his j.D. from Tulane, and then joined the Air Force as an attorney. As an undergraduate on a baseball scholarship, Devlin was Vice-President of Phi Kappa Sigma, Commander of the Arnold Air Society, a member of the Pre-Law Society, Omicron Delta Kappa, and Pi Sigma Alpha. He was also a resident advisor, Senior advisor for Bechtel House, and Assistant Director of Mens ' Housing. Devlin states that he would come back to Tulane if he had to start over again. He liked the size of the classes, and campus, and the cosmopolitan environment of New Orle- ans. 92 Student Life HUNDREDS JOIN ANTI ADMINISTRATION PROTESTS OVER HULLABALOO ' CENSORSHIP CONTROVERSY Mi " Vi-i-iini: fHmrjaslr;illiin Sl.iirefl Administration Fortids Plclures ' Publication IJbrniLEed tkmnllor) Hrjuj Ait Ri)mtd B; Dniimlly Scniir lames M.

After graduation, he found that Tulane, in addition to reputation, had a " common sense, level headedness about it. " He says that Tulane ' s name is important, catching peo- ple ' s attention as a mark of distinction. Ronald Curtler graduated from Tulane with a degree in political science in ' 68. Mr. Curtler is currently a consulting attorney for a firm in New Orleans. Married as a sopho- more and a father as a junior, his activities were primarily work, his family, and Air Force R.O.T.C. Curtler remembers that R.O.T.C. was quite exciting at times. Whenever the peace advocates confronted them during their drills, they would leave and let them have the field. He stated that the cadets had orders to rescue the flag if it was attacked, however, and that on two occasions he and his fellow cadets had to " protect it from groups numbering in the hundreds. " Curtler did not go to war, and explains that he saw the R.O.T.C. program as a way of completing four years of col- lege without being drafted. Upon graduation, he received a deferment from the Air Force and entered Law School. After acquiring his |uris Doctorate, he began active duty and served in the intelligence area. A ' 68 English major. Wade Hanks is presently a self- employed cinematographic and still photographer doing advertising work, primarily for television. As an undergrad- uate, he was a photographer for the Jambalaya and the Hullabaloo and a member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity. Still a resident of New Orleans, he remembers doing " a lot of drinking, " and Tulane ' s reputation as a " big party school. " Hanks discovered that Tulane ' s name did not help him at all, and that after graduation, most people were finding it " extremely difficult to find jobs. Employers regarded col- lege kids as ' rebellious. ' " Hanks remembers Professor Norman Boothby as being an excellent instructor. He admits that he enjoyed Tulane, but would not attend college if he were to do it all over again. .A Civil Engineering major in ' 68, Mervin Morehiser is now a practicing civil engineer in New Orleans. As a hard- working engineer, he had time for few extracurricular activities, other than playing intramural football. " Most people were pro-war in the early years, but changed as the war progressed. The Vietnam War, " he states, " was staring us in the face. " Morehiser was in an engineering lab on the evening that President Johnson told a national television audience that he was not going to seek re-election, and remembers shouts of joy and surprise over the announcement. College was " falling into a four year long rut. " Morehiser notes that the problem at that time was not getting a job, but getting drafted. He was drafted, and was sent to Korea after working with the Corps of Engineers. He also commented that Tulane graduates are treated with a certain deference. The President of the ' 68 Senior Class of A S was eco- nomics major Carter Morse. A Kappa Sig, he played on the tennis team as a freshman and played on the Pan-Hellenic athletic league. In ' 78, he is a tennis professional and direc- tor of an indoor tennis organization. Morse remembers Dr. Erskine McKinley as the professor who gave him a " solid overview of the international mone- tary system. " His mother had attended Newcomb, and he wanted to come to New Orleans, the " cosmopolitan city of the South. " Morse regards himself as " one of the old patriots; one of the few straight people to come out of my class. " As a result of his patriotism, he joined the Army and went to fight with the artillery in the jungles of Vietnam. Morse adds that the main groups present when he was at Tulane were: the anti-war group, the drug group, the pre- med group, the pre-law group, and those few who had no group. Mentioning the fact that Tulane seemed to impress most people, he was enthusiastic in his reply that he " would sure do it all again. " Presently residing in Rochester, New York, Morse offers some advice to economics majors who are considering entering the job market after graduation. Recalling his experience as an employee of two major corporations, he advises, " An undergraduate degree is worthless. Unless you have an M.B.A., you progress to a certain level and no further. " Part owner of a clothing department store in Virginia 94 Student Life Beach, Douglas Myers was a senior history major in ' 68. A member of the Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity, he worked for the lambalava and the Hullabaloo. He remembers Professor Radomir Luza of the History Department as a " dynamite professor. He was the first per- son to turn me on to learning and the learning experi- ence. " Refl ecting upon the Vietnam War as an influence on stu- dents ' lives, he states, " Half of us got drafted, and the other half went to law school to get out of the draft. " Myers considers coming to Tulane " the best of choices, " as he liked the diverse types of people and the cosmopoli- tan atmosphere. Myers found his first paying job after graduation, which involved selling books in a department store, very frustrat- ing. He felt that he was " not qualified to do anything, " and that all Tulane had taught him was " how to think. " Myers feels that he had experienced somewhat of a rev- olution against the establishment, as attitudes toward the war drifted from popular conservatism to liberalism. He regards the period as a " difficult time for people of our age. " Proud of Tulane and his experiences here, he comments: " Tulane did leach us how to be human, and that ' s more impo rtant than anything. " In ' 68, the president of the School of Architecture was Charles Lord, )r. About the Vietnam War, Lord asserts that, " ll was the single most important thing in my life in terms of the way in which I planned my life in college. " After los- ' " his deferment because of falling one year behind in the hiteclure program, he joined the Navy Reserve to avoid ng drafted: " I did not want to participate in ihf military -jII, " he admitled, Hovvever, he regarderj thf Reserve as ' only interim solution.

The demcinsiralions based on student activity finally 1 force Ifjhnson ' s resignation, " His experiences in college led to his co-founding an organization known as " Antfarm, " with which he is pres- ently working. Antfarm ' s goal is to seek alternative archi- tecture, as it is representative of a movement of people working outside the system for social change. Through Antfarm, he has delved into the art world, especially video tape medium. In 1975, Lord helped coordinate the staging of an event as an art performance called Media Burn, in which the driving of a customized Cadillac into a wall of burning tel- evision sets was videotaped. For his efforts in Antfarm, Lord was selected to represcnl the United States in Ihe Intornational Art Surveys Bieviennali of Paris and Docu- menta of Caslle, West Germany. He has lectured in various colleges, such as Temple and Carneg ie-Mellon University. Currently living in San Fran- cisco, Lord believes that Tulane ' s ndino does not carry a dislinction comparable lo Ivy U igiic s( hools. Few of us can formulate a clear pi( ture of ourselves ten years from now. Sometime in the not Irx) disUml Kilurc, however, wIuti we are all firmly rooted in another phase of our lives, another group of Tulane studenis may ask, " Whatever happened to Ihe Class of •|978 " ' — 4 dn D. Will K Student life 95 The Making of a Theatre Production: Most actors will be the first ones to tell you that their performance on stage is only a small part of the making of a theatre production. By the time the curtain rises on open- ing night scores of people backstage have already invested countless hours in designing costumes, rehearsing lines, building the set s, stringing the lights, composing the musi- cal score, and choreographing the actors ' stage move- ments. To the technical crews and design artists behind the scenes, opening night really marks the end of their jobs. With this in mind, Debbie Niederhoffer, a Newcomb freshman, and a cast member of Tulane University Thea- tre ' s production of " The Duchess of Malfi, " undertook the task of writing an in-depth analysis of the making of a the- atre production — from the first day of rehearsal to the final curtain. The very first step in the making of a theatre production is to decide upon the play. Assistant professor Buzz Pode- well was given the task of selecting and directing the third of Tulane University Theatre ' s major productions for the 1977-78 season. According to Buzz, he chose " The Duchess of Malfi " because " it was time Tulane did a Jacobean play. The Duchess had gorgeous poetry and several strong parts which I wanted as vehicles for certain actors. " " Originally, " he continued, " I wanted to do an Eliza- bethan swashbuckling extravaganza, complete with sword fights and all, but Tulane just doesn ' t have the facilities for it. The Duchess is the type of play most theatre depart- ments shy away from. I was delighted we could do it. " Rehearsal began the week of January 9, although the cast had been working on the script during winter break. For example, Kathy Paul (the Duchess) said that she worked some six hours a day at home doing research on her char- acter. On the first day of rehearsal, all of us were terribly nerv- ous and a little inhibited. But Buzz quickly broke through our self-imposed barriers with his contagious enthusiasm. He began the rehearsal by giving us a brief plot summary of the play. His message was clear: we were all going to work our tails off for the next two months, but above all we were going to have fun. Witness his colorful description of the first scene: " The first part of the play — up until the Mandrake scene " The Duchess of Malfi " — should be fairly jolly. We have first a wry and witty Car- dinal matching wits with a cynical and witty malcontent. He ' s the only court gall, which is to say a rung above the village idiot. A jolly and festive leave-taking scene filled with jokes dumped on that silly old fart, Castruccio . . . Have any of you thought much about his name? Next we have the humorous hiring of a spy. This time a meeting between — you guessed it, that same witty, malcontent, this time he ' s getting off cracks about sick men ' s urine and throat cutting, and the first of his horse dung cracks! Any- way — a meeting between him and that urbane humorist, Duke Ferdinand. Next, we go to a scene which, granted is a bit heavier; but even in this we get the Duke ' s cracking jokes about women liking peckers! Then we move to a sexy, wooing and bedding between two charming and beautiful young folks. Then to that same court — gall railing on mortality and disease! Cod! How he loves his superiority to us! Then on to a scene filled with a lot of pregnancy, spring in Italy, and light jesting about — you guessed it — horse dung. Things do get tense when the Duchess has labor pains, and Antonio must very cleverly run about for Forobosco; but we soon forget that, with the news that a son has been born! Yay!!! Then a meeting between the wry jester Bosola and the new father who, like all new fathers, is a bit nervous (this is a scene straight from " The Love Boat " ). We next go to Rome and meet a Cardinal who likes to fuck and twist ladies ' arms. Anybody out there who thinks that shouldn ' t be fun??? Very soon we get a classic comic routine about guns pointed at peckers. " I realize that there are a few serious moments in these first scenes. " Once classes started, the rehearsal schedule evolved to four nights a week and all day Saturday and Sunday. Rehearsals were also held during weekdays for the princi- pal characters and eventually for everyone as opening night grew nearer. The Madmen scene, directed by Assistant Director Wynne West, had separate rehearsals until two weeks before opening night. As one of the madmen, I found it •■ X- ■i- • ' . ' JIlF g g J - W ■ ' ■• I tl f f _ ' 9K ' V -,i M r student Life 97 challenging work. Since this was a completely new scene, unstructured as far as a script went, we began from a totally improvisational point, working on neurotic ticks which led us to the mind of an insane person. The scene changed every night during performance as we learned to react to the audience and each other. " We achieved a feeling of madness, and at times there was a fear of getting too close, " said Madelaine Sable, one of the Madmen. An important part of the rehearsal process was spent on the character ' s physicalizations. Banu Gibson Podewell, Buzz ' s wife and a professional singer and dancer, choreo- graphed the stage movement. " To create a physicalization of a character, it ' s necessary to get rid of all your own physical quirks, " said Banu, " It ' s like you hav e to start in neutral before you can go to first, second, or third gear. Unfortunately most people start in reverse. " Banu worked with each character in a different way. For the soldiers, it was important to get a precise, uniform set of movements. With the Duke and the Duchess, she con- centrated on self-confidence demonstrated by fluid move- ments. An image helped the actor who played the Cardi- nal: " I suggested he use the idea of healing people when he touched them, " Banu said. " The Mad people were developed individually according to how the actors had developed their roles. " The introduction of music was a rehearsal technique that helped everyone. One weekend, we did the show over and over, to every imaginable type — Valentino Tan- gos, Dixieland jazz, the Charleston, Chopin, Puccini, tuba quartets. Cream, Toscanini, and Schoenberg. Music has a marvelous way of influencing the mood of a show. It injected new vitality into the show after we had been rehearsing a long period. Another rehearsal technique used was the complete run- through of the play, with everything but words. We were allowed to mouth out lines, but we weren ' t allowed to even whisper. This forces the actors to look at one another and to perfect their stage movements. Doing live theatre can be a natural high. Creating a char- acter is a very special type of communication. " It ' s magic maybe. Maybe it ' s crazy to let a person get born out of a bunch of typed pages, " commented Kathy Paul. " You have to believe in the character. You have to learn to love the character, just as you love yourself so you can try to under- stand why they do what they do — so that you can do it yourself. " Nick Faust, who played the sinister Cardinal, said that, " Being such a mean character is somewhat depressing. It hurts me — being a character that doesn ' t react sympathet- ically. It would hurt Nick Faust to see his friend Ben Prager go crazy. But that ' s my job. " While the cast worked to perfect their roles, costume designer, Dottie Marshall, worked with Buzz to develop the visual image. The basic theme she sought to incorpo- rate in the costuming was a world in transition moving towards degradation. To achieve this, Dottie designed cos- tumes in the same manner for both the Duke and the Duchess. In the first act, their clothes are restrained and protective of the body. By the last act, however, both are wearing scruffy-looking clothes which are very open, espe- cially around the neck. Bosola and Julia, being outsiders to the court, were dressed accordingly. For example, while 98 Student Life the Duchess wore long, vertical gowns, in subdued colors, lulia, the Cardinal ' s mistress, was dressed in a stylish bright green costume. The mad people were dressed as grey, shapeless forms. By the end of the show, the majority of the central characters were dressed in grey in order to emphasize the horror of the senseless murders. Lighting designer William Baker achieved a cold, harsh effect to emphasize the repressed WW I society of the " Duchess. " Baker also implemented numerous special effects, including a stained glass window in the Cardinal ' s study, and the prison scene, where the shadow of the jail door is cast across the entire floor of the stage. Professor George W. " Hank " Hondrickson, the Ihealre Department ' s chief set designer was faced with the dilemma of designing a set for a theatre in-the-round where, frequently throughout the play, two separate groups of characters would appear at the sam e time, (■x( hanging dialfjguc among themselves.

The show had two echo scenes one night, when Randy Mekey didn ' t get out on stage in time and shouted his lines from the wings. 100 Student Life There ' s a story that, when writing Macl elh, Shakespeare put a curse on the play, and any production thereafter was to be ill-lated.

M mi Tulane is awakening to the fact that it holds a permanent art collection of high quality, which is, in fact, the second oldest collection of its kind in the South. William Cullison, the collection ' s curator, is exuber- ant about its excellence, and interested in finding a new home for the works, most of which are housed in the Special Collections Division at Howard Tilton Memorial Library, The original Tulane Museum was located on the fourth floor of Gibson Hall; it included both an art section which consisted of indi- vidual and collective donations, and an anthro-ethnological section which, accord- ing to Cullison, was " incredible, " with stuffed birds, skeletons, bisons, an elephant, and Egyptian mummy cases. At this time, the art history department was non-existent and there was little interest in the collection; it was finally dismantled in the late thirties and scattered about the campus. The collection became thus impossible to administer, and part of it was damaged. Cullison was named Curator of University Art Collections by the Board of Administra- tors in 1976, Also that year, at the Annual Report of the University Senate Committee, a President ' s Committee was set up for advi- sory purposes concerning the collection, both for Cullison and President Hackney. A budget of one thousand dollars per year was confirmed for the purposes of art restoration. Under Cullison ' s supervision, the paintings were restored, cleaned, and reframed. This process cost as much as four hundred dollars per painting and created a real financial bur- den. Mr. Lloyd Young, a Louisiana Art Conservator who is highly respected in his field, restored most of the works under Cullison ' s supervision, and generously did so without payment until the budget was established in 1976. The collection at present, consists of over 200 paintings and more than 1000 prints and drawings. It comprises five major sections: Louisiana art, Newcomb art, American art, prints, and architectural drawings. Much of the work is not dis- played and can be found in University Archives, the Rare Book Room of the library, the manuscript stack, the Special Collections Room, the work area of the Special Collections Division, and the attic of the art building. Much of the collection is in less than perfect condition, due to inadequate finances. A lovely Scottish landscape by Alfred K, Brown displays a huge gash. The marble statue of a " Dancing Girl " is missing her counterpart, who was stolen from the Longenecker ' s porch, A weathering " Indian and Maiden " behind Warren Dormitory ought to be moved inside, but the expense cannot be met at this time. Despite these problems, the collection boasts some inter- esting and important works. Through the years, some dona- tions have been rejected because of financial inability to 104 Student Life i — ' r .., 1 - -. m 1 1 1 ' ■ 1 » 1 tt-B ' ■Mm I 1 % .

However, important donations (nave been accepted, including an excellent collection of American art donated by the Woodward brothers, William and Ellworth, who established the university ' s architectural and art pro- grams, respectively. The entire collection essentially centers around their donations. The first substantial donation to the collection was (he Linton-Surgpt donation. In 1899, (he Iwo Lintcjn sisters, who were married o the two Surget brothers, donated some excellent examples of 19th century art. The donation included portraits by Henry Inman (1801-1846): paintings by John Cadsby Chapman; sculptures by Thomas Crawfcjrd, Hiram Powers, and Randolf Rcjgers; and, a land- scape by impressicjnist Frank Boggs. In 1971, Mrs. Oorcjthy Spencer Collins donated a collec tif)n of Southern paintings, prints, and maps which depic I Louisia- na ' s hislc ry.

It includes lithographs, engravings, and et( fiings, many oi which pertain to New Orleans and Louisiana, An inleresling ccjileclion f;f prints fjy Morris Llenry Holjbs includes a series o etchings f;f hislori al builcJings in the Vieux Carre, The photography collection is extensive and consists of over 11,000 prints and nega- tives, many revealing New Orleans as it was years ago. Included in this collection are some pieces of early carnival art, with designs by Wikstrom and Drvsdale for costumes and floats. The Architectural Drawings Collection has 30,000 drawings, comprising one of the larg- est architectural archives of the southeastern United States. The immediate concern of both Cullison and the President ' s Committee is to find a permanent art museum to house the collec- tion on Tulane Campus. The Sasaki Associ- ates, a group of architectural planners from Massachusetts, were hired this year to design a masterplan for future construction on the Uptown campus. They recommended that an art museum be placed in what is now the Newcomb gym, and that a separate building be constructed beside it for additional space. If the Sasaki plan is carried out the collection could then be used in conjunction with the university ' s fine arts program. According to Cullison, the art history department could then relocate in the museum for study and research purposes. The Sasaki plan is the first step in bringing Tulane ' s extensive art collection out of the attic and into a permanent home. Student life Wy PHOTOGRAPHS BY DUDLEY SHARP ' fmmetmmmmm. ■ — UJ - .J ' - mmmmme mm mimmnn Dr. Henry Braden ®B»aeja»3W? ' .ifiE? .«s-«re(SrOTiaHf Less than 15 years ago, Tulane University, like all venera- ble Southern institutions, refused to admit blacks. Today, Henry Braden III, a black doctor and community leader, helps run the place. Appointed to the Board of Administrators this spring. Dr. Braden fills the seat vacated by Frederic Ingram. " It ' s a hell of an honor to serve as an administrator for an institution such as Tulane, " the New Orleans native explained. Educated at Xavier and Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Braden brings an impressive list of credentials to the post, having served on the Board of Governor ' s of Tulane Medical Center and as Chairman of the Center ' s Board of Directors. He was also appointed by President Johnson to the National Advisory Committee on Education of the Deaf. Braden identified Tulane ' s most pressing problem as the increasing cost of higher education. " Universities con- stantly need more and more money, and Tulane is no exception. " He stressed that students must be awakened to the importance of alumni donations, explaining that for every dollar a student spends for tuition, " the school has to find twice that much. " Braden supports Tulane ' s c ontroversial athletic program, explaining that much of the money donated by alumni is earmarked for that program. He noted that of all the gradu- ates of Tulane ' s eleven schools and colleges, those from the Medical School give most generously, and many give specifically to the football team. " Even the faculty from the School of Medicine voted to support the athletic pro- gram, " he asserted. Labeling Tulane ' s integration efforts as " progressive, " Braden maintained that the school has always adopted a less conservative attitude than that of most Southern insti- tutions. " Tulane has been a leader in the community and in all the South, in giving an education to all people regard- less of race, color, or creed. " Admittedly still unfamiliar with much of the University ' s policy making procedures, Braden makes up for whatever experience he lacks by his refreshing insight into Tulane ' s myriad problems and his faith in its great potential. 108 Student Life Provost Robert Stevens • ' I ' m 44 and the idea of being president of a university is appealing, " says Provost Robert Stevens of his recent appointment to the presidency of Haverford College. " Having the opportunity to be president of a very good f hool is too much to turn down. " Stevens, who takes office July 1, seemed flattered at being named president of the Pennsylvania college. " They approached me, " he says, " and the interviews were embar- rassingly painless. " Haverford ' s Presidential Search Committee reviewed Stevens ' resume and decided thai his strong scholarly background was consistent with the " moral, ethical, and social values of Quakerism. " Stevens, who will become Haverford ' s tenth president, reflected on his two years serving as chief academic officer and as budget officer for the academic divisions. " The quality rjf an institutirjn is measured by the f ualily of the faculty and its commitment ' says Stevens. " But if Tulane wants to retain its prominence as an undergraduate institution, it must improve its teaching quality, " Commenting on the teachings at Tulane, Stevens poinis out, " We have the advantage of small classes, bui the f osl vvp pay is loo great. " One of the costs, he claims, is that " we use far loo many " As, at the very moment that the quality rjf graduate stu- flents is falling in sfjme departments. Ilof efully, this is dngmg, " With attrition problems in mind, Stevens commissioned the First Year Report. With still another revision to undergo before completion, he sees many benefits of such a report dealing with student problems. " It faces up to issues we need to face up to, " says Ste- vens, also a legal historian. Another step forward, accord- ing to the Provost, is the Harbert self-study report, which " is basically a statement of philosophy, defining what a lib- erally educated man or woman should be. " I have every expectation that the Harbert report will be an important ingredient in re-thinking the contours of lib- eral education, " says Stevens. " The report will help articulate and justify what Tulane docs and why it does it. The statement of philosophy will prove especially important in future years when there ' s going to be increasing pressure on liberal education as the number of students shrink, " The self-study " could put Tulane back in the forefront of liberal arts colleges, " said Stevens, " And I very strongly believe in a liberal arts s( hool, " he adds, " or I wouldn ' t be j oing to Haverford. " According tc; Stevens, Tulane ' s next Provost should " above all, keep a sense of humor and be prepared to work like a cJog. " Most imporlanlly, he s hould keep a sense of vision about where the University is going, " Student Life 109 EWORLD NEWS BRIEFS POLANSKI FLEES RAPE CHARGES (Los Angeles) Film director Roman Polanski ' s lawyer informs California authorities that his client fled California on September 1 to a town in France in order to avoid prosecution related to charges that he had sex with a girl under the legal age of consent.

Tired of decrepit facilities, poor library services and low salaries, the faculty mobilized to end a significant cause of the problems — the continuing intercollegiate athletic deficit. For twenty years, Tulane ' s athletic department had been losing money. In the last decade the athletic department averaged a deficit of 1 million dollars annually. When Pres- ident Sheldon Hackney, the former provost of Princeton, took office in 1975, there was a glimmer of hope among the faculty that something significant would be done about the athletic deficit. Hackney, after ail, had stated during the selection process that, above all else, academics must come first. By the end of his first year, however, it had become read- ily apparent that the new President, either succumbing to pressure from influential alumni and the Board of Adminis- trators, or simply having a change of heart, was not pre- pared to do away with the intercollegiate athletic program which was wreaking havoc with the University ' s financial stability. In fact. Hackney did something of a 360 degree turnabout. " The decision I faced was a stark one, " wrote Hackney in 1976, in a paper entitled " Perspectives from the President ' s Office. " " Get out of all intercollegiate athletics or find a way to make football more successful . . . [for] football is the only sport with any chance for generating revenue. " His new plan was to pour more money into the intercol- legiate athletic program and transform it, eventually, into a money-making venture. A new football coach was brought in and a new athletic Director, Hindman Wall, was hired mainly for his skills in publicity and other promotional work. Their formula seemed logical. Publicize and pro- mote the Green Wave teams enough and the New Orleans sports fans would flock to see quality collegiate football and basketball in the Superdome. Armed with a spanking new $100,000 promotional cam- paign, the 1976 football season opened under the banner of the " Spirit of ' 76. " Of course the whole thing flopped. The team not only had another dismal losing season (2-9), but by the end of the year the athletic deficit — again, mainly attributed to football — crested at just over Si ,400,000, a somewhat dubious record. By this time, many of the faculty who had served on the Presidential Search Committee must have been alarmed at their candidate ' s performance. Yet they waited. After all, there was still a chance that the new president could be reasoned with. Nevertheless, by the beginning of 1977, several key members of the faculty were becoming increasingly militant about the issue. When the final University budget for the fiscal 1977-78 year was presented by President Hackney to the University Senate, composed chiefly of faculty, the Senate came very close to voting against the continued funding of athletics. The President, however, stoorJ his grr;und and was able to contain the opprjsilirjn by gaining the support of the Sen- ate ' s own Budgetary Review and Athletic Committees. The resoluiifjns by the A S, Newcomb, and Graduate SchtKjl faculties, however, came as a surprise to the Tulane community. Even Prrjfessrjr Masrjn, aulhfjrrjf the A S reso- lution, said he would have been willing to delay the issue another iwrj years if it hadn ' t been for the $2.5 million dol- lar Vincent grant which was bestowed upf;n the University in 1977. The faculty was eagerly wailing to see how the largest single private cfjntribulirjn to the University would be divider] amr ng the varirjus departmf.-nts, I hen fame President Hackney ' s announcement that the Vincent con- tribution would go into funds functioning as endowment, which meant that they would become available to support deficits incurred by the intercollegiate program. The Vin- cent money, which the faculty had assumed would be used for academic improvements, would instead be used to finance the athletic department for another four or five years. " In other words, " stated Professor Munro Edmonson (Anthropology), " the funds will go down the same familiar rat hole. " This was the last straw for the faculty. The depth of the gap which had arisen between the faculty and President Hackney became apparent when professor after professor spoke in favor of the resolution to abolish " big-time " inter- collegiate athletics at the A S Faculty meeting on Novem- ber 15: Prof. Charles Davis (History): " The situation is simply untenable. There is no way to bring the [athletic] deficit under control. Why should the University continue paying for public entertainment when it can ' t maintain its own buildings, when we can ' t pay for adequate salaries for the faculty? It ' s a stupid game to play. " Prof. Edward Ballard (Philosophy): " I oppose continua- tion of the intercollegiate athletic program as a matter of principle. Tulane is an institution of higher learning and any other business is unappropriate for the University. Why should we be financing semi-professional football? It ' s inappropriate for us to engage in public amusement. " Prof. Donald Lee (Philosophy): " The problem is that once the coach starts winning ball games he is going to leave. One year he will fill the University ' s coffers, but then he will leave. Ara Parsigian was at Northwestern until he started winning, and then he went to Notre Dame. It hap- pens over and over again. Even if he does produce a win- ning team, the coach is going to leave as soon as he gets a better offer, and we ' re back where we started again. " Opposition to the resolution came from the Physical Education and R.O.T.C. staffs and Professor James T. Rog- ers, Chairman of the Athletic Advisory Committee. Rogers pointed out that discontinuing intercollegiate athletics would not bring an immediate end to the financial losses. The University, he said, would have to pay for broken con- tracts with its new coaches, and scheduling commitments well into the 1980 ' s would bring severe financial penalities if not honored. " There is no good time to abolish an athletic program, " retorted Professor Mason. " But once decided it must be carried out. " The A S Faculty passed the following resolution by a vote of 101 to 12, with 5 abstentions: In as much as intercollegiate athletics at Tulane Univer- sity has led to a continued great waste of our limitecJ finan- cial resources and thus to a weakening of our ability to ful- fill our academic responsibilities, we, the faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences, believe that the only solution is to end such an athletic program. We, therefore c:all on President Hackney to take the University out of " big-time " dthlclif s by the encJ of the current season. Three days later, the Newcomb faculty followed suit, passing an identical resolution unanimoLisly, 8i-0. Profes- sor Edward Partridge, who introtiuccci the Newcomb reso- lution, echoed his colleagues ' sentiments on the issue, stating, " At first I ot)jecled to the phrase ' big-time ' athlet- ics, but then I suddenly remembered the context. The term ' big-time ' came about with vaudeville. Then I realized how the term was exact — shc;wbiz. We really (Jon ' t want that lor lul-inc. I don ' t think the students w.int th.il cilhcr. They Student Life 115 don ' t pay $6,000 to come to be entertained. " Two weeks later the Graduate School Faculty passed a similar resolution with a vote of 96 for, 11 against, and 8 abstentions. The Graduate School ' s resolution was the final step in consolidating the professors of the entire Lib- eral Arts and Science Complex into a solid front, adamantly opposed to the continuation of " big-time " athletics at Tulane. Several other factors besides the Vincent grant influ- enced the faculty to act. For one thing, the Budget Review Committee had stated that the Athletic Department would incur at least a million dollar deficit in the coming 1978-79 fiscal year. Second, this was the first year that all the other departments on campus (excluding Athletics) would have or be approaching a balanced budget. The argument used in the past by the Athletic Department officials was that they shouldn ' t be criticized for running a deficit when other departments did the same. FHowever, this simply did not hold water any longer. The only exception to this show of fiscal responsibility was the Medical School which continues to run a $2 mil- lion dollar deficit annually. Interestingly enough, the Med- ical School ' s Faculty was the only group to pass a resolu- tion supporting the continuation of " big-time " athletics. The faculty came to realize that they would have to be the ones to take a stand against the continued athletic def- icits, because it seemed no one else would. Professor Mason pointed out that the Student Government on cam- pus was " politically ineffective " and the Board of Adminis- trators, although reported to be divided on the issue, ref- used to make their opinions public. " The faculty members are the only ones to take the initiative, " said Mason. The response from FHackney to the resolutions, which came in the form of a letter published in the FHULLABA- LOO the following week, was something considerably less than the faculty had hoped for. " The football team, " wrote FHackney, " is a focal point for pride and spirit in the University, providing occasions which bring the community together for a common pur- pose. " Furthermore, FHackney wrote that the football team serves a " most important link between alumni and friends. " All of our 40,000 alumni went to a Tulane with a signifi- cant intercollegiate program. All of the money that has come to the University over the years has been given to a Tulane that participates in intercollegiate athletics. Our improving pool of applicants for the undergraduate divi- sions has been attracted to a Tulane with intercollegiate athletics. " One tampers with such fundamental aspects of a ven- erable institution only with great care and circumspec- tion, " FHackney warned solemnly. The same issue of the HULLABALOO in which Hack- ney ' s letter appeared contained an article entitled " Schools Nationwide Thrive After Discontinuing Football. " The arti- cle outlined six universities which had dropped their inter- collegiate football programs and suffered no substantial loss of alumni contributions or decline in their applicant pools. The six schools were Georgetown, The University of Tampa, Xavier University of Ohio, the University of Ver- mont, the University of Detroit, and the University of Chi- cago. One quote from Harold Metcalf, the Athletic Direc- tor of the University of Chicago seemed particularly poign- ant. " We tore down a 55,000 seat arena and erected the largest academic building in existence, " boasted Metcalf. " That tells you something about our priorities. " Also in the same issue, the ARCADE magazine of the HULLABALOO ran a full length feature story on Edmund Mcllhenny. The Chairman of the Board of Administrators discussed the faculty resolutions at some length. If the fac- ulty had hopes of gaining a sympathetic ear from Mcllhenny on the issue they were quickly dashed on the rocks of 20 years of despair. In an attempt to discredit the LAS (Liberal Arts and Sciences) faculty, he charged that there had always been a group within the liberal arts fac- ulty who were set against intercollegiate athletics. Rather ironically, he then stated, " These groups point with pride to the University of Chicago because that ' s the kind of school they would like Tulane to emulate. " It seemed Mcllhenny was saying that Tulane ' s old nickname " The Harvard of the South " should be changed to " The Ohio State of the South. " Professor Mason immediately refuted the remark in stat- ing that, " In the last ten years I ' ve never missed a Tulane game either in person or on the radio. Tulane has become a kind of home for me and I feel some of the ' rah-rah ' spirit. But I would be somewhat of a coward if I didn ' t speak out against the dangers of athletic deficits. " I would support fully the deficits if students could freely engage in sports, but football has become a business and it must be looked upon as an unprofitable business at Tulane, " said Mason. Professor William Gwyn, Chairman of the A S Political Science Department, characterized the scholarship ath- letes as " paid gladiators. " " Intercollegiate football is not educational, it is an enter- tainment we put on at great expense, " said Gwyn. " Let ' s put away these childish things and get down to the busi- ness of running this University. " Mcllhenny went on to say that, " Tulane football still holds a solid prospect for the University of making money, " and declared that, " the Board was prepared to give Tulane football at least two more years. " Apparently two years was not quite what President Hackney had in mind. In his November 18th letter he pro- posed a plan whereby football would exist for at least a minimum of five more years. According to the plan, the athletic deficit would steadily decrease over a five year period, reaching zero by the 1982-83 season. The projections. Hackney wrote, are " honest, ' no mira- cle ' expectations. " " I hope to do better, " he continued, 116 Student Life " and will work particularK- hard to increase the levels of support from the friends of Tulane athletics, but I cannot guarantee that we will do better. I am, however, fully pre- pared to be held to the above schedule of achievement at each step of the wa . " The statements made b - Hackney and Mcllhenny left the faculty at a standstill. Although the faculty resolutions were politicalK ' significant, the power for changing Uni- versitv policy remains in the hands of Hackney and the Board of .Administrators. The question that faces the fac- ulty in the upcoming vear is, " Where do we go from here? " Although none of the facult ' have seriously begun think- ing of a resolution calling for the President ' s resignation, it must be remembered that the LAS Complex resolutions took most of the Tulane community by surprise this year. Hackney, himself, stated that he is " fully prepared to be held " to his annual projections for the intercollegiate ath- letics deficit, " each step of the way. " Professor Mason is cautiously optimistic about the con- troversy. " I don ' t think the President can go on forever against the strong wishes of his faculty. No president of an American University would want to be president when the faculty is expressedly against his stand, " said Mason. But, would the faculty ever consider asking for his resig- nation over the issue? " The faculty is very attached to Hackney because they believe that he is the very best possible man we could have here for almost every other thing at Tulane, " said Mason. " But the Board cannot really run this University. " The Faculty resolutions to abolish " big-time " athletics at Tulane seem to have had little or no effect on President Hackney or the Board of Administrators. However, it is hard to imagine that, if the faculty passed a similar resolu- tion calling for the President ' s resignation, that Hackney would stay in office. It would be too politically damaging. If by chance, the faculty chose not to follow this course of action, an interesting alternative was proposed by A S Senior Class President Nate Lee: " When 1981 gets here and Hackney falls short, we will dress him up as quarterback for the LSU game. If his faith in the team is valid, the line will save him from the onslaught of the vicious man-eating Tigers. He might even score. " If, however, the team doesn ' t quite live up to expecta- tions. Hackney will learn his lesson. The symbolism will be very appropriate: LSU ' s defensive back will be breaking Hackney ' s back, just as the weight of ' big-time ' athletics will have broken Tulane ' s and LSU by then will be on top smiling down at us. " Besides, we could make up some of the losses with TV rights and overflowing crowds of people waiting for the first President to fumble a University with no hope for recovery. " — Greg Ptacek Student Life 117 CLA. ON CAMPUS ET.U. CONNECTION It was just about one year ago that President Hackney asked the University Senate Committee on Academic Free- dom, Tenure, and Responsibility to establish guidelines limiting the operation of intelligence organizations on the Tulane campus. The request was rather frightening. Why would guidelines be necessary unless there was some sort of activity in the first place? Was it a mere precaution? Not likely. The New York Times revealed in August of 1977 that the CIA had extensively infiltrated college cam- puses around the nation like Cornell, Denver, Notre Dame, Michigan, ad infinitum — and yes even Tulane. Shortly after the beginning of the 1977-78 academic year the ca mpus newspaper. The Hullabaloo, initiated a cam- paign for release of all the CIA files regarding the Univer- sity. President Sheldon Hackney and Provost Robert Ste- vens were, to say the least, less than enthusiastic about the idea. In fact, they refused to file for release of the docu- ments under the Freedom of Information Act of 1974, although they did agree to request the files informally. On February 15, Hackney admitted at a press conference that the CIA had conducted drug tests here in the 1950 ' s, but refused to release the files obtained from the Agency claiming that he was withholding the documents to pro- tect innocent people. Hackney did agree to release a pre- pared statement about the experiments within the next few days, but in light of the fact that every proper noun in the file had been deleted. Hackney ' s reasoning for with- holding the documents seemed illogical. On Wednesday, February 16, the Hullabaloo gained access to information that the Army had paid a doctor at the Tulane University School of Medicine to conduct behavior modification tests with LSD-25 and mescaline. The information also indicated that the tests were proba- bly conducted on human subjects. A call to the CIA to con- firm the information proved fruitless. " I heard you were coming — I can ' t tell you anything, " CIA Chief Counsel Richard Singuegrana told me in a brief telephone inter- view. That afternoon the Hullabaloo requested that the University Senate Committee on Academic Freedom, Ten- ure and Responsibility, and the Committee on Student Affairs to join the newspaper in petitioning the CIA and the US Army for release of files under the Freedom of Information Act. Later that evening the Hullabaloo per- suaded the ASB Senate to file for release of the documents. On Monday, February 23, the Hullabaloo office was del- uged with offers of assistance from numerous organiza- tions. The American Civil Liberties Union offered their ser- vices as legal counsel if the newspaper decided to take eitfier the Agency or the University to court over release of the documents. The Campaign to Stop Government Spy- ing, an organization run by a former member of the National Security Council named Morton Halperin, and an affiliate organization called The Center for National Secu- rity Studies, agreed to send the Hullabaloo declassified intelligence documents concerning Tulane. On Tuesday, February 24, Hackney was grilled by Hulla- baloo editors at a press conference. They contended that the newspaper had a legal right to see the documents. The Hullabaloo editors claimed that if the Agency had released the documents to the University, then they must have been declassified and, therefore, a matter of public record. Hackeny, however, refused once more to release the docu- ments. The thought of an impending court battle was becoming a real possibility. If Hackney ' s statement which was still forthcoming proved adequate, plans for litigation by the Hulabaloo would be scratched. The waiting game began. In the weeks to follow, the Hullabaloo learned that Tulane was on a CIA list of 250 colleges and universities where they actively recruited new agents and other employees. It was unknown if covert recruiting had been done at Tulane; however, the Agency had overtly recruited on the campus for years. In fact, the CIA had been regular clients of the Hullabaloo advertising department. During these weeks it was also disclosed by a former CIA agent that two former top level CIA officials were Tulane grads. 118 Student Life On Tuesdas, March 28, six weeks after it was promised. President Hackney released his statement concerning the documents received from the CIA. The statement revealed that in 1957 the CIA had contracted Dr. Robert Heath, a bio-pschiatrist at the Tulane University School of Medi- cine, to conduct tests with a drug called Bulbocapnine on three monkeys and on a human olunteer, in order to determine its potential in the realm of mind control. The statement further contended that the drug proved to be harmless and ineffective, and that the New York Times, possessing the same documents that the administration now held, had reported these facts in their August 2 article, mentioned pre iously. A quick review of the New York Times article revealed, however, that Dr. Heath had denied conducting any tests whatsoever for the CIA involving human olunteers. Furthermore, New York Times reporter Nicholas Harrock told the Hullabaloo that the Times never had the CIA documents in question. On Wednesday, March 29, the Hullabaloo was finally able to obtain access to the CIA documents concerning Tulane from an outside source. Hackney ' s comments on the experiments were found to be accurate. Furthermore, the documents showed that Heath had conducted the tests with the utmost care and professionalism, and that he had received no compensation from the Agency for his efforts. On Thursday, March 30, Dr. Heath agreed to an inter- view with the Hullabaloo Editor-in-Chief Brad Steitz and myself. Heath stated that in 1957 when he conducted the experiments, the CIA had feared that the Communists had reportedly found an amazing new mind control drug. Agents had smuggled it out of the Soviet Union and rushed it to Heath in New Orleans. With the nations in the throes of the Cold War, Heath pointed out that he did the tests because he felt it was his patriotic responsibility. As it turned out, the experiments proved to be harmless. However, Tulane ' s affair with the CIA brings to mind an important question: should a university attempt to restrict ils faculty from engaging in activities with the CIA and other intelligence agencies? The American Association of University Professors called upon its members to " avoid any involvements which might conflict with their academic obligations and responsibili- ties " in its 1976 Resolution on Covert Intelligence Activities of the UniterJ Stales Government. At Tulane and other uni- versities many of the professors are upset with this state- ment. It places them in a precarious posilic n, lorn between their professional responsibility and what many feel is their :;atriotic duly. On the other hand, some professors have (nade huge profits by engaging in research for intelligence agencies, with lillle thought given o professirjnal ethics f;r ' diriotism. To his credit.

" Yel, nf mailer hf w mur h legisLiiion is passed and no matter how many guidelines are adopted, the CIA will probably find a way to successfully solicit the aid of American universities in their covert research pro- jects. The only hope is that professors like Dr. Heath will continue to resist attempts to sacrifice their professional ethics for whatever the reason, — Doug Nadjari Ed.

This master redevelopment plan was unveiled April 12, al President Hackney ' s " State of the University " address by a representative of Sasaki Associates Inc., the Massachu- setts firm hired by Tulane last August to analyze the cam- pus and its facility needs. In Its analysis, the Sasaki Associates carefully studied the physical characteristics of the existing campus environ- ment, the use of existing building space, new building facility requirements, and parking and playfield require- ments for the University ' s 8,000 full-time students. Although the Sasaki report states that " the existing over- all pattern of land use on the Tulane campus is excellent, " it stresses that, " the long range concept should strengthen and extend it. " The study concluded that McAlister Drive and Newcomb Place seriously dis- rupt the " existing desirable pattern of land use. Both Newcomb Place and McAlister Drive are used as linear parking lots and mar one of the most beautiful open cam- pus spaces in the country. " In addition, the two roads were cited as being hazardous to pedestrian traffic. Under the Sasaki plan, McAlister Drive and Newcomb Place would be closed to auto- mobiles and re-developed as a pedestrian mall at a cost of approximately $426,000. The removal of the 560 parking spaces would be compensated for by the building of a major garage facility to house 1,000 cars. The garage would be built on Freret Street where the ROTC barracks are pres- ently located, at a cost of $2,700,000. The new garage, according to Sasaki, " it accompanied by a comprehensive and enforceable parking policy, " should sub- stantially improve the current parking situ- ation. Also, an additional 1,000 parking spaces would be created if plans to demol- ish the old Theatre Speech building and Sugar Bowl Stadium are carried through. The complete demolition of the sta- dium, which " dominates the campus and neighborhood, and is becoming increas- ingly derelict in appearance, " receives highest priority in the Sasaki plan. Although the complete demolition comes as no surprise, the stadium issue has been surrounded by conflicting and confusing reports throughout the years. The University Board of Administrators approved plans to dismantle Tulane Sta- dium last summer after building inspectors expressed concern over the stadium ' s structural safety. At that time, James Fon- dren, Assistant Director of the Physical Plant, said the rcnoxation of the stadium for future use had been considered, but was rejected when it was discovered that the cost would be " phenomenal. " Oddly enough, both Fondren and Clarence Scheps, Executive Vice-President of the University, adamantly insisted in early February, just a month and a half before the Sasaki Plan was revealed, that the stadium would not be totally demolished. The stadium occupies a twelve and one-half acre tract of land valued between $6,500,000 to $22,500,000. The Sasaki Associates feel that its demolition would be well worth the estimated cost of $1.5 million. The area between Willow and Claiborne would then be tied into the rest of the cam- pus, while at the same time providing space for new facili- ties. The Sasaki plan also calls for the removal of the old The- atre and Speech building. A new complex would be con- 122 Student Life strucled on the present site of the Newcomb tennis courts, between Newcomb and Dixon Halls. A reno ation and extension of Dixon Hall coupled with the new building would add an outstanding performing arts facility to the campus. V ith the additional space opened up by the removal of the stadium, Sasaki recommends the construction of a major new recreation building to replace the outdated women ' s facilities of the Newcomb pool and gym and the men ' s facilities currently in Favrot Field House. Such a facility " will add the kinds of indoor teaching and recreation facilities found in comparable universities. " Also proposed for the current stadium site is a Continu- ing Education Center, to consist of an apartment-hotel, academic facilities, and commercial and office facilities. The two buildings cited for construction on the site of the stadium will cost $13,800,000, but " should be planned to be financially self-liquidating because of its user-reve- nue potential. " If it is in fact expected that these two buildings will pay for themselves, it remains highly unclear as to where the money will come from to pay for the other proposed reno- vations, along with the demolition of old Ixiildings and construction of nev ones. An upgrading of the landscape on the Broadway side of Newcomb Hall in order to " strengthen the image of the University " also takes a high priority among renovations suggested by Sasaki. It is also proposed thai the Dean ' s office and related functions of the College of Arts and Sciences be relocated to a renovated first floor of the History building to satisfy the college ' s need for a physical identity. Also targeted for renovation is the central luiilding on Freret Street which currently serves as home court for the varsity basketball team. " In order to accommodate student-related administra- tive and business functions, " Sasaki recommends that the varsity basketball home games be played in an expanded Favrot Field House. The Newcomb Gym and Pool, relocated to the new Rec- reation building, will undergo heavy renovation, convert- ing it into the University ' s museum and gallery, along with a proposed new smaller building. Three other small buildings are also called for, to serve specific purposes. The Monk Simons Athletic Building, scheduled for construction shortly, will house the athletic staff and varsity locker and laundry rooms. The F. Edward Hebert Building, on Freret Street, will store the Congressional papers and mementos of the for- mer Congressman. The Pendleton E. Ledhe Electronics Laboratory " will replace the existing engineering shops and will provide updated and expanded electronics laboratory space for the College of Engineering. " Finally, Sasaki sharply criticizes Tulane ' s scheduling sys- tem antJ the quality of some instructional space. The quality of space ranges from a very high standard in lh( Business School, to spaces in other buildings which are " in such poor condition that their use should be discontin- ued. " The Sasaki report serves a worthwhile purpose by help- ing the Univ(Tsily in selling and achie ving its goals and pri- orities for lh fulur( Us suggested renovations and improvements can only benefit the Univcnsiiy in its attempt to provide a quality education. Where the money will come from to fund Ihc develop- menl still remains to be seen, which seriously c hallengcs the implemc nlation of any of Sasaki ' s proposals. — Rick Lerner and Abby Sutherland Student life ri.i This Page: Nate Lee, leader of the CRASS Movement Opposite Page: ASB President Jenny Brush ASB: REBELLION IN THE RANKS The most important issue to sur- face in the ASB Senate during the fall of 1978 was not, ironically, the pro- posed abolishment of deficit funded big-time athletics — but a proposal that the Senate itself be abolished. Led by A S Senior class president Nate Lee, the Coalition to Realign or Abolish Student Senate (CRASS), shocked the ASB into a state of crit- ical self-evaluation by its proposal in late October that the Student Senate be terminated. Lee wrote in a November HULLA- BALOO editorial, that, " the Senate is counterproductive to the potential of itself or of the individual, " declaring that, " first, there is no self-govern- ment in the Student Senate . . . Sec- ond, it is somewhat unique in its hav- ing no pretense to popular sover- eignty. " Severe apathy characterized both Tulane ' s student government and its constituency. Lee quoted ASB President lenny Brush, who had stated in an earlier editorial that, " It took a few years, but I have arrived at the conclusion that there is no need for the Student Senate . . . they as a senate are totally dispensable. " Indeed, such an appraisal from the Senate ' s leader, along with her " realization " that, " senators for the most part, are by nature lazy, " could only support the logic of the conclusion which CRASS had come to: " Don ' t just say they are dispensable; dispense with them totally. " The CRASS alternative was for a town council type structure in which CRASS Student Senators would be elected only to their individual (rather than ASB) college govern- ments. In order " to bring student government directly to the students, " an Associated Council with the same powers of recommendation and approval as that of the Senate would represent the ASB. This council would be open to any student with a valid Tulane I.D. " By letting all stu- dents vole, " said Lee, " every de would have more impact in the of the administration and faculty. " Charges were consistently leveled by student leaders, and senators themselves, in regard to the Senate ' s lax attitude throughout the fall. Among the charges which catalyzed the formation of CRASS were: ASE election violations; meetings ending early or senators leaving in the mid- dle of a session with New Business ignored during such meetings, ASE committees failing to hold schedulec meetings; profuse absences fron Senate meetings, general unaccount ability to its student body constitu ents; and, failure to be fully informec on key University issues. Moreover, the fact that 35% of th( Senators did not even bother to sigi up for the one required committei position, and that less than ten Sena tors served on all University Senat committees supported Lee ' s ascerbi observation that, " nothing we [sena 724 Student Life m tors) do is of any importance, except to ourselves. " Tom Echols (A S ' 80) echoed Lee ' s comments when he wrote in a letter to the Hullabaloo that, " We the stu- dents of Tulane University are now witnessing something that should never have been allowed to happen — the decline of the student govern- ment. " The sludf-nl gf)vf ' rnmont was fur- ther discredited this year when it was discovered by the HULLABALOO that ASB President Brush had written a confidential letter urging the dis- missal of Dean of Students Annette TcnElshof. The letter haci been cricu- laled to JO administrative, faculty, and student leaders. " Annette TenE- Ishof has got to go, " wrote Brush. She ihf-n proceeded to list, in a rather ue and cryptic manner, ten rea- w ns why the Dean should be dis- charged. Brush ' s letter contained no expla- nalir n or suppruling evident f to back up her daims. The ASB Presi- dent camv under severe criticism from slurienls for her arlir ns. One student wrrjte that the letter was " a typical example of her tactics. Ba k slabbing and deception are not the ways to bring about any needed changes. We cannot believe anyone can approve of these kangaroo court tricks and clandestine tactics. " The HULLABALOO, in an editorial, stated that: " We can only speculate that President Brush is so hard put to redeem her sagging reputation as a leader, that she feels impelled to resort to virtually trumping up charges against an unsuspecting administrator. Ironically, all the alledged charges against the Dean could be more appropriately levied against President Brush. " The StucJent government also came under fire this year for its failure to oeai with ihc inlcr-( ollcgiate athletic issue. While the faculties of the Col- lege ()i Arts and Sciences, Newcomb College, and the Graduate School all passed resrjiutions railing for the abolishment oi intercollegidle athlet- ics at Tulane, the Student Senate sat on the issue, l.ibling disr ussion on Ihc issue for further study. Professor Henry Mason, the ex-officio leader of the dbolishrncnl mf)vefnent, was compelled to tall the Slu(ic-nt Senate a " politically ineffective " body. ' ' I have arrived at the conclusion that there is no need for the Student Senate ' ' — jenny Brush Although it had more than enough fuel for its fire, CRASS fizzled out as its leaders interest in the alternative government proposal seemed to diminish. Spring ASB elections announced the University Ticket candidates victorious. And in a run- off, what was called " an encourag- ing " number of students (1300 out of some 8000) eiec led Randy Wykoff as Vice President of University Affairs, Hank Brothers as Vice President of Administration, Bruce Waldman as Vice President of Finance, and, a new leader, ASB President-elect Rogc r Tiinpcvlake.

Not only on Thursday nights, but also during the weekend, the bars maintain a profitable business from students who enjoy having a place close to campus where they can relax. This traditional Tulane water hole, however, may soon be undergoing an evolution. A dispute erupted during the year between bar owners and local residents. The conflict centered around a basic question of rights — the right of the Maple Street residents to a home safe from the noise, danger, and property dam- age caused by drunk bar patrons vs. the bar owners ' right to run their businesses, free from harassment, in the great American tradition of free enterprise. For years, people living in the Maple Street neighbor- hood have complained of excess noise and littering prob- lems. In addition, the residents claimed that cars belonging to bar customers frequently blocked streets and driveways, making it impossible for a fire truck or police car to get through in the event of an emergency. To combat the problems, residents several years ago formed the Maple Street Area Residents Association. The organization has repeatedly fought the bars with legal action. This year the association succeeded in getting City Councilman Frank Friedler to introduce a moratorium on new bars in the area. In addition, any increase in the busi- ness of the existing bars was blocked through the Associa- tion ' s movement to enforce city, fire, safety, and zoning regulations. Although all the bars on Maple Street were affected, the conflict centered mainly on the two newest bars in the area — Buffalo and Fae-Do-Do. " I am appalled, " declared Tom Kunstler, the owner of Buffalo, " that a cup or a bottle in someone ' s yard should be the reason enough to destroy a man ' s business. " On the suggestion of Gideon Stanton, the president of the Association, Kunstler placed trash cans in front of his bar. The trash cans alleviated the littering problem, but Kunstler ' s problems weren ' t over. Kunstler, the Association contended, failed to follow certain fire safety regulations requiring the installment of a sprinkler device called a del- uge system. Until this system was installed, the residents claimed the bar could not legally operate. The case was brought to court. Then, in the summer of 1977, the Maple Street bars were raided by the New Orleans Police Department for not enforcing their posted capacity limits. Thomas FH. Clay, an employee of Buffalo, was arrested. As a result, Kunstler and Clay filed a $56,000 suit against Councilman Friedler, the Maple area residents and the City of New Orleans. In the suit, Kunstler and Clay charge that they were har- assed, vilified, maliciously and unjustly prosecuted, and improperly arrested. " The suit also maintains that the fire code regulation setting capacity limits for bars is unconsti- tutiona l. Fae-Do-Do, located down the block from Buffalo, was established just under the wire before the moratorium on new bars came into effect. In addition, through a bureau- cratic error, its owner, Milton Mary, was able to obtain an illegal permit which allowed live entertainment. Mary claimed he knew nothing of the regulation forbidding live entertainment in the Maple Street area, but the Association contended he intentionally disobeyed the law. FHis permit 126 Student Life for live music was revoked in court, and as a result, Mary claimed, his business was se erelv damaged. In addition, Fae-Do-Do was ordered to provide suffi- cient off-street parking for its customers, which the Associ- ation claimed it failed to do. XAary ' s efforts to find such parking, howe er, were thwarted. Mary- signed contracts with the Sheik Film Store and Ailfred Pousson ' s Texaco Service Station on Maple which allowed h is customers to use their parking lots after 6:00 p.m. A short time later, however, Pousson wanted out of his agreement. lar claimed the reason for this was the Maple Street Association had threatened Pousson with a boycott. Pousson refused to comment, but Gideon Stanton flatK denied this was true. The ow ners of the Sheik, however, disclosed that an uni- dentified woman claiming to represent the Association threatened them w ith a boycott. By that time, however, the contract had been signed, and had to be honored. Unlike Pousson, the Sheik was charging for the use of their park- ing lot, and was unable to back out of the agreement. Stan- ton denied that the woman acted with the knowledge or sanction of the Association. The bar owners felt that the Maple Street Association was hurting the local college students in what they termed " harassment " of their bars. " If they beat me, they beat the kids, " Kunstler stated. " Students deserve some recognition and consideration. They at least deserve the rights of every other person in this town. " Stanton countered this argument with the fact that many students live in the area, and that noise often made it impossible for them to sleep or study. In addition, Stanton argued, the fire and safety regulations were designed to protect the customers of the establishments. Both Buffalo and Fae-Do-Do, as well as the other bars on Maple Street, were required to post capacity signs, and the police made sure the limits were enforced. This enforce- ment resulted in the long lines frequently seen outside of Buffalo, and a loss in business soon followed. The loss in business experienced by Buffalo was serious enough for Kunstler to make a few changes. He is now planning on making certain renovations — giving the bar a more " clean " family-like atmosphere. The rock, country, and disco music currently played i n the bar will be replaced by a mixture of dance and listening music, and food will be served seven days a week. Kunstler plans to make these renovations despite the fact that, in the court case involving the deluge system, the court ruled in favor of him, stating that Buffalo had a legal right to operate. The city, who was the plaintiff in the case, is now appealing the decision. " I would drop all suits if the residents would cease and desist, " Kunstler has declared. " I have offered to cooperate in any manner I could, but I have only received negative answers. " Fae-Do-Do was not so fortunate. A court has closed the bar, ruling that, until Mary can provide off-street parking for his customers, Fae-Do-Do cannot remain in business. He is now appealing that decision. Although the Maple Street Area Residents Association admits that the crowding in the area has decreased, they do not believe that the problem has been solved. There are still too many people in the bars, they feel, and they still do not believe Buffalo has the legal right to exist. Since the worst congestion occurs during the busy mid-summer months, they will reserve their final judgment until then. Although it has diminished in intensity, the battle of Maple Street is still being waged. Thursday night at Maple Street might remain a tradition at Tulane for some time yet, but there is an ever increasing possibility that the area will return to the quiet neighborhood it once was. — Elizabeth Willis strict enlorcemeni of cily regulations has torced Buffalo ' s to begin " carding, " resulting in a loss of business.

The Superfest was created two years ago as an alterna- tive to the Homecoming celebration which in previous years had beeen largely a Creek affair, centering around dances and a parade which offered minimal involvement for the majority of students. The value of these parades was questioned when the only apparent after-effects seemed to be injuries caused by over-zealous and drunk party-goers. So, a group of energetic students and alumni conceived of the idea of a carnival with proceeds going to the library, desperately in need of funds.

New comer, Ron Gural, directed the first major pro- duction, Moonchildren, by Michael Weller, The setting was an apartment in an American University town dur- ing the 1960 ' s. The play portrayed the lives of eight stu- dents living communally, their dealings with each other, and reactions to this Vietnam War era. For the cast it was a challenge to delve into the minds of college students in 1968, in a time and place so different from the " Tulane University Country Club. " Moonchildren, star- ring Pamela Poole, Nick Faust, Ben Prager, ancJ Chip Wheat, received mixed reviews. THEATRE Student Life 75 J I ' y4 Student Lift Of Mice and Men, based on Steinbeck ' s novel, takes place in Northern California in 1936. The action centers around Lennis (Dennis Delaney) and George (Lynn Parry), two farm workers who dream of owning their own farm and living " off the fat o ' the land. " Director Kevin Hoggard left room for experimenta- tion and improvisation, allowing the cast to design their roles. The friendship between Lenny and George was the overriding theme throughout the play, and Parry and Delaney worked as a warm and complimentary team. The reactions from society con- cerning this friendship were expertly laced in, not allowing the story to become a tragedy, yet still expressing the irony and sadness. The cast of ten worked well together. Senior Ben Pragor won the Best Character Actor award for his portrayal of Slim. The shcjw also starrecJ Ciovanna Huyke, Larry Candle and Leo Jones.

The first, The Great Nebula in Orion portrayed two women and their separate paths taken after college. Heather Spicuzza sensitively directed the accidental reunion in Lanford Wilson ' s play, of two lesbians, one a self-admitting lesbian, the other a woman with a husband and family. But per- haps what was most personal to the audience was the idea of a " college reunion " ; having nothing to say to someone to whom you had once been so close. The show featured Dottie Marshall, Tulane ' s own cos- tume designer, and Margaret Hahn, a graduate stu- dent director. The second feature, a crowd-drawer by the name tself. Sexual Perversity in Chicago, played to standing room only both nights. An exciting production, directed by Nick Faust, the show centered around the ives of four people and their efforts to be sexual " pros. " A sexual relationship between Danny (Berry Cooper) and Deborah (Tammie Viosca) hurts the friendships of two men, Danny and Bernie (Chip Wheat) and two women, Deborah and loan (Debo- rah Niederhoffer). Directed with humor, pathos, and most importantly, honesty, it essayed the emptiness of mere physical relationships. This being the first time that the subject of sex was dealt with so bluntly on the Tulane stage, there was some concern among Faust and his cast about the audience ' s response. The play, it must be noted, ncluded a number of nude scenes. The audience on both nights, however, received it with tears and ' aughter. " We wanted to make them think about Iheir own sexuality and how they dealt with it, " said Faust. One man asked him after the show, " wasn ' t that girl embarrassed to touch that boy ' s crotch? " " No, " said Faust. " Do you think he should have been embarrassed to touch hiY breasts? " " Of course not! " replied the man. Speaks ff)r itself.

According to Eban, the U.S. will have to take an active role in negotiations if peace is to be established in the Middle East. Dismissing the efforts in recent years of the United Nations in trying to solve the Israeli-Arab conflict, Eban stated, " We have come to regard the majority of their decisions as simply an arbitration of power. " Eban viciously attacked the " indigenously imbalanced structure " of the U.N. wherein Israel ' s single vote is over- whelmed by those of the 23 Arab nations. The U.N. ' s recent peace efforts have been futile, said Eban, because it has failed to concentrate those efforts on the nations directly involved and continued with a policy of " dragging others in " to the negotiations. Citing the Palestinian Liber- ation Organization (PLO) in particular, Eban said the PLCs participation in any formal peace negotiations is unaccept- able to Israel, because of the PLO ' s steadfast stand against the right for the nation of Israel to exist. " The PLO assures its own exclusion from the peace neg- otiations, " explained Eban. " The PLO wants to liberate Israel from Israel and it is our right to exist independent of anyone ' s recognition of it. " To establish peace in the Middle East, Eban said that a " step-by-step evolutionary approach " to peace negotia- tions, similar to the one begun by former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, would be necessary. Although Eban said that Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin would be will- ing to surrender parts of the Sinai Desert and Golan Heights for apeace treaty with Egypt and Syria, he warned that " the old map or conditions cannot be precisely restored. " " If the Arabs can ' t give us 100% peace and we won ' t give them 100% withdrawal from our lands, let ' s see how close we can come together, " he concluded. 764 Student Life In his October 1 address at McAlister Auditorium, the former Prime Minister of Great Britain discussed the threat to Western nations posed by Eurocommunists and social- ists. While offering assurances that, " there is no commu- nism in Great Britain, " Wilson admitted that " the western democratic nations face a more dangerous threat than at any other time in the last quarter of a century. " In contrast to the democratic stability of Great Britain, Wilson granted that Eurocommunism was " an established reality " on the continent. He went on to outline the con- tinuing importance of the North Atlantic Treaty Organiza- tion (NATO) as a military defense of western democracy. Although Wilson directed several criticisms at the pres- ent E uropean Economic Community (EGG) bureaucracy, citing its desire to " control and standardize everything, " he emphasized its potential importance as an economic bar- rier to the spread of communist and socialist influence. SIR HAROLD WILSON student Life 165 ANNE SHEPPARD TURNER A member of the Wilmington 10, Anne Shep- pard Turner, told an audience at Tulane Univer- sity on February 24 that North Carolina local and state officials had framed herself and the nine other defendants. The case centers around a march by black stu- dents in 1974 on the Board of Education in Wil- mington, North Carolina. The students called for a black studies program and the right to cele- brate Martin Luther King Jr. Day in school. Led by Reverend Ben Chavis, a friend of Turner ' s and a member of The Commission for Racial Justice of the United Church of Christ, the stu- dents were met with a bomb threat upon their arrival at the church on February 4, 1971. The incident sparked shooting and violence which did not cease until February 7, when National Guardsmen were called in to restore order. Dur- ing those three days a seventeen year old black was shot by police, a fifty-seven year old white man was killed, and a local grocery store was burned to the ground. A year later Reverend Chavis, eight black youths, and Turner were indicted on charges of arson and conspiracy to assault emergency per- sonnel. A jury composed of 10 whites which Turner claimed to be affiliated with the Klu Klux Klan, and two blacks, found the defendants guilty. The North Carolina Supreme Court and the State Court of Appeals refused to hear the case even after the state ' s three star witnesses recanted their statements before a grand jury . prompting Turner ' s charges of a government frame-up. Although in January of this year. North Carolina ' s Governor James B. Hunt jr. refused to pardon any of the Wilmington Ten, the Wil- mington Ten Task Group of North Carolina Council of Churches, The National Student Coalition Against Racism, and other civil rights groups are still pushing for justice. Even President Carter has been contacted and requested to act on the matter. " It ' s time to prosecute the real criminals, " said Turner, indicating her lack of faith in the American legal system. 166 Student Life PETER JAY RUTH BADER GINSBERG i Ruth Bader Ginsberg, the re- knowned discrimination lawyer, spoke at Tulane on February 14 this year. Described as being to women ' s rights movement what Thurgood Marshall became to the civil rights movement, Ginsberg has argued nine gender-based discrimination cases before the Supreme Court, losing only one. Ginsberg, presently serving as Director and Counsel to the Amer- ican Civil Liberties Union ' s Women ' s Rights Project, has literally written the book on sex-based discrimina- lion. She argued and won three land- mark cases before the Supreme Court: Reed v. Reed (1971), Frontiero V. Richardson (1973), and Califano v. Coldfarb(1977). The Columbia Professor pointed to the reductifjn, by modern conven- iences, of the time spent in the hf me, the f urtailerJ population goals, and ihe longer life span as three fac- tors which cfjntributed o the recent change in the court ' s altitude. " Eventually, " she predicted, " the Supreme Court will take abortion, pregnancy, gender-based discrimina- tion, elf., fjul of its separate cubby- holes anrJ acknowledge the prarlir al link on Ihe sex-ef4uality issues. How- ever, clearer directions from the p ilitical arena will make this more lil«.lv " A crisis of economic confidence in Great Britain in the early and mid-1970 ' s has spawned a new age of ' realism ' in the country, according to British Ambassador to the United States, Peter lay. Jay spoke at the Law School, Jan. 22, on the state of Britain ' s economy and its prospects for the future. " Britain has been existing under a false cloud of security, " )ay stated, " which inevitably has led to immense inflation. " " In the post-World War II years, Brit- ain printed too much currency which did not have a basis in production, spent wealth it was not creating, and paid its workers more than the market could bear, " Jay explained. Fie acknowledged that " serious mis- takes " were made by Great Britain ' s political and economic planners in the past 25 years. FHowever, he said that government officials, labor leaders, and business executives have determined that by reducing federal spending and limiting wage increases, a more stable economy would result. " A new wave of thinking is rising in Britain and it is in this new school of thought that the future of Great Britain lies. " Student Life 167 SOUTHERN WRITER ' S SYMPOSIUM Billed as a " celebration of our Southern literary heritage, " TUCP ' s Southern Writ- er ' s Symposium was held at Tulane from Friday, March 31 through Wednesday, April 5. The Lyceum Committee, in con- junction with the Arts and Sciences Coun- cil, presented the first of what they hope will become an annual gathering of some of the region ' s most talented authors. Poet James Seay, author of " Let Not Your Heart " and " Water Tables, " proved to the Friday night ' s audience that poetry does not always have to be D.H.S. (Deep FHeavy Stuff). Seay began his reading with a poem entitled " Blue, " in which three members of the audience participated by reading alternating lines and holding up flash cards. Pat Carr, who received her Ph.D. from Tulane, was the featured artist on Saturday night. Although she is a native of Wyo- ming, much of Carr ' s work is set in the South. Her prose displays many of the tra- ditional structural and dramatic techni- ques associated with Southern literature and writers such as Flannery O ' Conner and Eudora Welty. Max Apple drew a large crowd to the Rogers Chapel for readings of his work Tuesday night. Like Carr, Max Apple is not a native of the South. He is originally from Michigan and is currently teaching at Rice University. He employs a humorous, satiri- cal prose style to treat often mundane sub- jects. Apple read from his latest collection of short stories " The Oranging of America, " which is a mythical account of the suc- cessful hotel magnate Howard Johnson. Johnson travels across America sampling ice cream and marking LI.S. map with orange circles each time a new HoJo ' s is constructed. Tulane professors Dale Edmonds and Peter Cooley were joined by journalist Ellen Gilchrist in a forum on contemporary Southern Literature on Wednesday night. Gilchrist moderated the panel and opened the evening with a discussion of the basic problem of defining Southern literature. All three panelists seemed to agree on some of the more general identifying traits: (1) The writer must have been born, lived, or worked for some extended period in the South, and (2) The Southern writer deals with ideas, theme, and problems peculiarly Southern. To these generalities. Professor Cooley added, " the Southern writer has an extreme attachment to places and institu- tions. An identification, not only with the region, but also with home, the family, and man ' s place in nature. Professor Edmonds spoke of the chival- ric code of the " genteel Southerner. " He feels that there continues to be a strong consciousness of duty and decorum in the work of even the regions most modern authors. 168 Student Life JOSEPH BRODSKY loseph Brodsky, the famous Russian poet, gave a reading in the Newcomb Chapel on October 6. While the reading was brilliant it seemed as though he was completely unprepared for the program. He was not only disheveled in his dress and outward appearance, but his poetry was strewn about the floor and on chairs. Between readings he would shuffle through his papers and books to find a poem thai suited him. But the mess was soon forgotten as soon as he began to read his poetry. Although Brodsky is fluent in English, he preferred to recite his poetry in Russian with Tulane professors Gerald Snare and Samuel Ramer preceding him with iho English translation. The English readings by Snare anrJ Kdfncr wrc tidcr udtc but the real beauty of the prjetry came through in a lan- guage that most of us in attendance did not understand. There was a peculiar rhythm trj Brodsky ' s reading and each poem seemed to spiral higher and higher towards a climax. His foreign words were charged with emotion and power. In 1972, Brodsky was officially " invited " to leave the Soviet Union. His poetry is not at all political, so it ' s some- what of a mystery as to why he was exiled. Whatever the reasons, Brodsky said that he feels he is all the more human for being separated from his countrymen, and probably a better poet. The human condition, he explained, is one of isolation. Thus, the poet must experience isolation if he is to interpret the world around him. A passage from his poem " Nature Morte " explains his viewpoint on isolation further; What then shall I talk aboulf Shall I talk about nothingness? Or people? No, only things, since people will surely die. All of them. As I shall.

Liliidn !-lellman launched the 1977 Newcomb Women ' s Forum with a speech on Monday, November 14, in Dixon Hail. Often laureled as America ' s greatest woman playwright, Hellman ' s first play, " The Children ' s Hour, " drew immediate attention to the young woman in 1934. " The Little Foxes, " " Watch on the Rhine, " and " Toys in the Attic, " cemented several drama awards, including the New York Drama Critics Circle Prize. She has also earned acclaim with her recently published memoirs " Scoundrel Time, " " Pentimiento, " and " An Unfinished Woman. " " Scoundrel Time " relates her experience with the House on American Activities Committee that elevated her into national prominence in 1952. Hellman is famous for the stand she took with the commit- tee when during the " McCarthy Era " she was subpoenaed to testify about possible communist activities of her friends. Risking jail for contempt, Hellman informed the committee that she would testify, but only about herself. She refused, citing the first amendment, to comment upon her friends. " I am not willing now or in the future, " she wrote in a letter to the committee, " to bring trouble to people who in my past associations with them were completely innocent of talk or action that was disloyal or subversive. I cannot and will not cut my conscience to fit this year ' s fashion. " These two themes — conscience and friendship — were poignantly portrayed in her recitation on November 14. Reading from " Pentimiento, " Ms. Hellman depicted the personal and political tragedies of World War II. Tears welled in her eyes, and her voice cracked as she spoke of her lifelong friend Julia and her struggle against Nazi oppression. LILLIAN HELLMAN 170 student Life ELLEN BURSTYN " I would urge women to relate to their own life on a one to one basis and not through another human being, " said veteran actress Ellen Burstyn at the Newcomb Women ' s Forum on November 16. " I was dependent until five years ago and was conditioned to be a helpmate. " " Now, " she continued, " when I love someone, I love to serve them, but it ' s not something that has been culturally legislated for me to do. For it to be expected that a per- son serve someone because of respective sexes, it limits growth on both sides. " Burstyn ' s address followed the presentation of the film " Alice Doesn ' t Live Here Anymore " for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress. Burstyn said that she considered the film her own project for it was she who had to convince Warner Brothers to put up $2.1 mil- lion for its production. " After work on ' The Exorcist, ' " explained Ms. Burstyn, Warner ' s wanted to make another movie. My agent found the script for ' Alice ' and I was interested in doing it if certain changes could be made. Women were being stereotyped as either good, bad, or as victims in the mov- ies, and we were looking for a more realistic portrayal of a woman. " After the studio agreed to the changes Burstyn then found a direc- tor, none other than Martin Scorcese. Writing portions of the dialogue her- self, Burstyn was happy with the pro- ject except for the ending. In the movie Alice goes back to her old boyfriend in a typical " happy end- ing " fashion. Burstyn said she wanted the widowed Alice to " go on alone " but the studio wouldn ' t allow it. Single herself, after three mar- riages, Burstyn said — quoting a line from " Alice " — that she is content " living my own life, not some man ' s life I ' m helping him out with. " Burslyn ' s apptMrancc was the last event in the annual Newcomb Wom- en ' s Forum whic h this year examined " Women in the Arts. " Other events in the program, which ran November 11-16, included a pholography exhibit and lecture by California art- ist Sue Fredries; an address by play- wright Lillian Flellman; a panel dis- cussion by six local women arlisis, in( luding Kosy Wilson, owner of Ihe local jazz club " Rosy ' s, " and finally, a workshop in the arts for women. Student life 171 How puzzling life can be when your legs aren ' t quite long enough, or you just can ' t find a comfortable position . . . and how ingenious can be the solutions contrived by a mind uncolored by conventional wisdom. Only the mind of the child is truly creative, wisdom being the product of such a perennially fresh viewpoint. The child within Dimi- tri has matured, yet paradoxically has remained a child; while no infant could be as brilliant as he, only a child could be as delightfully original. That combination makes Dimitri a truly extraordinary clown, and his November per- formance in Dixon Hall was sunny and joyful. The theme of music was established immediately as Dimitri strolled on-stage strumming a mandolin, and his problem became evident shortly thereafter as he lost his pick within the soundbox. For the remainder of the act he tried to find a means of sounding the strings, using such diverse substitutes as a plate, a stick, and even (with admi- rable success) a ping-pong ball bounced on the strings! But as the child ' s attention span is irregular, so did he often digress to simple, joyful play with the contents of his box of goodies: Dimitri spun plates on sticks, juggled ping- pong balls with his mouth, and performed impressive gym- DIMITRI nastic stunts as his mind wandered temporarily from his instrument. The act of many moods ended as he produced a heart shaped pick and with a proud smile finished the piece which had proved so difficult. The second act was a tale of musical discovery as the clown peered into six cases one by one, finding in each a treasure. The cases contained a variety of instruments with which Dimitri produced joyful (an d often melodic) results. The clown favored small instruments, including a minia- ture guitar, saxophones, and — the jewel of the collection • — a hand-sized accordian. At one point he assembled four small horns and played them simultaneously — after great effort devoted to getting the mouthpiece close enough together! While the music was but a part of the act, Dimitri is a diversified, competent musician with an unconven- tional, playful attitude toward music. A clown ' s act is worthless without his audience, and Dimitri, although exceptional, is no exception to this axiom. As he would repeatedly cry " You, you, you . . .! " upon discovering yet another treasure, so did he make the same cry to the audience at the end. Then he brought out a chair and, seated, returned the applause given him. The performer and the spectators were each treasures for the other, producing an evening filled with human warmth and harmony! 172 Student Life 1):(K)- 23-78 DEAR LIAR Two Emmy Award winners entertained the Tulane community on Sunday, February 26 when Valerie Harper and Anthony Zerbe battled wits in )erome Kilty ' s play " Dear Liar. " The play was adapted from the famous letters of Mrs. Patrick Campbell and George Bernard Shaw and spans the length of their forty year friendship. Zerbe played the egocentric and often sarcastic Mr. Shaw, while Har- per played the equally egocentric, but somewhat emo- tionally insecure Mrs. Campbell. Although both stars are best known for their televi- sion roles — Zerbe for his role in the detective series " Harry-O " and Harper for her Rhoda Morgenstern char- acter in both " The Mary Tyler Moore Show " and her own series " Rhoda " — they succeeded in transcending these roles to give a moving performance on the stage in Dixon Hall. The audience responded appropriately with a standing ovation. The program was sponsored by the Lyceum and Fine Arts Committee of TLJCP with proceeds going to the first annual New Orleans Festival of Women in the Arts.

College Bowl, sponsored by the Reader ' s Digest, is the same intercollegiate quiz game show which was popular on national television for more than seventeen years. Two teams of four members each answered questions, scoring points for each correct answer given during a thirty minute period. The questions covered a wide range of subjects, testing the student ' s knowledge on everything from history, music and English to the sciences and current events. The teams were composed of undergraduates as well as law, medical and business school students. The Law school team composed of Ellis Murov, Debbie Slattery, David Richardson, and Robert Mitchell took first place in the final rounds held on Sunday, February 12. The team then traveled to Houston on an all-expense paid trip to compete for the regional competition which was held on April 7-9. After three days of grueling competition, the Tulane team rolled over the teams from Baylor, Rice, and the University of Texas at Austin, to win the regional championship. The winning Tulane team then traveled to Miami where the national competition was held May 9-11. The team made it all the way through the quarter finals where they lost to Oberlin College by only one question. Chris Morris, chairman of the College Bowl for the Tulane campus said that " Overall, I ' m really happy about the way the competitions went. It showed that there ' s enough interest to continue it on Tulane ' s campus in the future. " Oberlin College, get ready.

Romney led off the Morality of Capitalism panel, the first of this year ' s Direction 78 series examining Contemporary American Morality. The panel was diverse in terms of background and occupation, as well as politi- cal orientation. Each panelist took a stand early and throughout the discussion articulated and explained his initial orientation. Essentially, Romney and Senator Charles Mathias believed in the inherent superiority of the free market competition in the capitalist sys- tem, and explained its failures as an aberra- tion of the true functioning of capitalism. Romney explained that the economic sys- tem in the United States has become prog- ressively less democratic because it has lost many of its capitalistic qualities, being " half monopolistic, half capitalistic, " and urged a modernization of the anti-trust laws. Romney warned against governments increased involvement in the economy, citing the bureaucratic nature of government as the cause of " government inefficiency, " Romney was not alone in his beliefs. Sena- tor Mathias was a supporter of the estab- lished order as well. Senator Mathias claimed, " We have allowed an aberration of certain actions to creep in. " He felt that dishearten- ing issues such as the disorder of the social security system, war, and the devaluation of the dollar are not the results of capitalism, but the " failure of the gov- ernment which has taken over the free enterprise sys- tem. " Socialist Michael Harring- ton disagreed, stating that these failures " were inherent in the capitalist system and not attributable to any partic- ular government. Harrington maintained that capitalism itself was an aberration, becoming increasingly ana- chronistic. Collectivization [as opposed to competition] grew out of the technologi- cal system, " he stated. " It is not a radical left philoso- phy. " Economist Robert Heil- broner agreed with Harring- ton, stating that " The demo- cratic spirit of the U.S. peo- ple is pushing it towards what we call socialism. " using on the specific shortcomings of American capi- " I, Harrington pointed to the increasingly unequal dis- pC ' Uiion of wealth, criticizing what he felt was the inher- ent quality of government which encouraged " not random inequities, but disequities. " Heilbroner agreed, asking, " Is it fair to let people make vast sums of money? We need new tax laws. Let ' s put a 100% tax on incomes which exceed one million dollars a year, and no tax on 10,000 dol- lars or below. One of the most lively debates of the evening was in reaction to Romney ' s notion of " rewards proportionate to contribution " on the market front. Heilbroner appealed that nurses, teachers, and bus drivers " contribute much, but receive low incomes and have little market influence.

We used to have over one-hundred automobile manufacturers in this country. Now we ' re down to four. You need an adequate number of competitors for a truly dynamic system. Big Business has been turning to government more and more. " George Romney " I simply can ' t swallow the statement that rewards equals contributions. It ' s a great travesty of the truth. Most teachers work as hard as business executives and contribute just as much to society, yet they are paid very little. What we need in this country is not so much a New Deal, but a whole new deck. " Michael Harrington future of capitalism in America. Romney emphasized the responsibility of the American people for a return to traditional American values. . 1athias stressed the need for the " lost element of lead- ership in government. " Heilbroner responded: " We ' re going to have to get together and move toward the direction of socialism, " but advised that every citizen attempt to " understand and steer away from bureaucratic democratization. " Harrington agreed that collectivization was part of America ' s future and re-emphasized the need for structural changes in the democratic system. He summed up by say- ing, " Our present capitalist system will be gone in fifty to one-hundred years. The question is, will it be a bureau- cratic-corporative system of government or a democratic- socialist one? " THE MORALITY OF CAPITALISM " The capitalist system is found all over the world. It is characterized by a high concern for the individual — something you don ' t find in other systems. The bad thing about it is that because it is based on intense selling and advertising, someone is telling you half-truths everyday. " Robert Heilbroner " I see enormous potential for the country. I ' m not sure if we have a civilization yet. It lacks characteristics of mature civilizations. But I look forward to a great golden age of America. " Sen. Charles Mathias I ' ric ijireclion 78 panel discussion entitled " The Moral- ;; , ; .ievision " was, fronn the beginning, a debate rather in.-;; d (Jiscussion. Each panelist took a stance early in the iX;! fcrmance and maintained it throughout the evening. Television critic and author, Harlan Ellison, began the discussion saying, " It would not matter if you broadcast Shakespeare twenty-four hours a day. It ' s the medium that kills you. It ' s an opiate. " The rest of his statements that night consisted mainly of variations on this theme. To Elli- son, television at best, was not worth discussing. Sitting across the stage from Ellison, Robert Mulholland said precisely what one might expect from the President of NBC Television Network. Again, his opening remarks were almost a capsule of the views he expressed later in the eve- ning. Mulholland sang the virtues of television and praised it as the greatest mass medium for entertainment, news dissemination and economic stimulation ever devised. Mulholland went a step further and, in the minds of the audience, perhaps a step too far, by praising television pro- gramming, maintaining that it was relevant, educational, and representative of social mores and contemporary American morality. " remember being at a CBS meeting where high CBS executives told us that the network would not last another three years. That was twenty-five years ago. " " Most alarming is the sharp reduction among young people. As younger people grow up watching television, they get to an age where they should be reading newspapers and they are not. " Daniel Schorr Virginia Carter The debate between Ellison and Mulholland grew more heated and seemed to display feelings of mutual frustra- tion and disgust. Virginia Carter. Vice-President for Creative Affairs for Tandem Productions (headed bv Norman Lear), took a less extreme position than the other panelists. Most of her comments countered Ellison ' s extreme viewpoints and finally in exasperation she insisted, " It isn ' t all bad! " Daniel Schorr, former CBS correspondent, asked his fel- low panelists not to polarize the issues, as the essence of the issue lav somewhere in the center. As the discussion moved to the social affects of televi- sion, particularly as a factor which influences deviant behavior. Carter and Ellison finally agreed that TV has a major impact. Schorr responded that evidence was insuffi- cient to conclude that television has a negative impact. Mulholland insisted that television reflected social mores rather than shaped them. Martin Agronsky, who was presented the George Foster Peabody Award for Distinguished Reporting, concluded the program by saying, " I think we ' ve confused you suffi- ciently. " He was correct. MORALITY OF TELEVISION " want government kept out of television — we have to tieep government out of T. V. Do you want Haldeman to be in charge of 8 p.m. programming? How about Ehrlichman for 9 p.m. programming? " Robert Mulholland " I think you ' re a bit misleading. There was an intense effort to divorce television from government in Great Britain from the beginning. I think it ' s misleading to assume that if television is taxed, then it ' s government controlled. " Martin Agronsky ; ■ I. ,viay wonder what an improvisational theatre group " ■■• jid co ntribute to a speaker symposium examining con- ternporary American morality. The Proposition examined and exploited the topic of morality in a thoroughly enter- taining way. The informally dressed performers introduced them- selves by playing baseball in mime. The ingenuity of the plays and humor of the positions give a sample of what was to come. Part of the format of Thie Proposition ' s performance is to draw suggestions from the audience. " Name three current moral dilemmas! " " Abortion, " someone shouts. " Anita Bryant! Incest! " The Proposition presents to the audience a Rodgers and ' MMM m:. ■:m Hammerstein style skit about a fetus with an oedipal com- plex. Finally the still sexless fetus meets and falls in love with Anita Brvant and e erything turns out " A-0|. " They have mastered the art of rapid-fire rhymes and puns, stvlistic satire, instant musical spoof, and well-honed stereotypical characterizations. The results are nutty and irresistible. THE PROPOSITION 1 1 ft . ;l ' 185 " ' think technology can be inherently immoral, " argued Or. Barry Commoner, biologist and speaker for Direction ' 78 s panel: The Morality of Science and Technology. Argu- ing vvilh anthropologist Ashley Montague ' s definition of technology as " the use of means to ends. " Commoner called for " a great national debate, to discover how the resources of the United States can best be used to serve the long-term social need, rather than short-term profit. " Debate sharpened between Commoner and physicist Gerard O ' Neill when each presented his alternative plan to furnish power using solar heat. Commoner advocated the development of individually owned solar cells to provide electricity in homes and businesses. However, O ' Neill favored construction of a single, large solar collector which would orbit the earth, transmitting energy to a converter in low-density microwave beams. MORALITY OF SCIENCE Commoner ' s reply to O ' Neill ' s proposal was critical: " I think it is exactly the wrong way to use energy. The whole purpose of solar energ is that the sun is everywhere. What ' s the virtue in building a big gadget? There is no economy of scale in solar energy ... it does not require centralization. " Disagreeing with Montague ' s assertion that " we have produced a mass creature — people — but people have become via technology, a dehumanized, demoralized, depoliticized creature who is critically incapable of using his mind as the fine instrument of precision that it should be. " O ' Neill maintained that science and technology was the ultimate expression of man ' s " ability to think. " Whether technology is, or is not, a " means to ends, " the panel debate was essentially one of " means. " Commoner warned that the way technology is going today, we are becoming slaves to a community of technocrats which are " puppets to the economic interests. " O ' Neill, on the other hand, was pleased with the direction of technological progress, believing that it could " provide a technological option which people can use in order to be able to develop their own ways of living. " TECHNOLOGY " . . . people have become via technology, a dehumanized, demoralized, depoliticized creature who is critically incapable of using his mind as the fine instrument of precision that it should be. " Ashley Montegu Gerard O ' Neill " I think technology can be inherently immoral. " Barry Commoner ■ ' ■ ' ,il panel of Direction 78 explored Sexual Morality. !; ' a!(Jderone, executive director of the Sex Inform- •.!■: .; ' : [fJucation Council of the United States, began [[,f i:-. ' , ussion by pointing out the transient nature of sex- udi rnoralily. " There is no such thing as sexual mor ' ality — tl ' iere is morality, " she said, " Today, immorality is defined as someone who is different. " Author Gay Talese lent his expertise, based on six years personal research of sexual obscenity, to the discussion. " My calling is journalism, " Talese stated. " I wanted to write about sexual obscenity — massage parlors, magazines like ' Screw ' and ' Hustler. ' I talked to people still controversial because of their dealing with styles still considered sex- ually obscene. " Talese elaborated on the transient and sub- jective nature of sexual morality by examining the legal definitions of obscenity. " In Georgia, a couple gets twenty-years if caught in oral sex and you get five years if caught having sex with an animal. " " When you have three sexual partners one is always left out. It isn ' t the sexual part which is the cause, but the intimacy which threatens the relationship. Mary Calderone Moderator Dick Caxett responded, " Then the obvious question is ' what if you ' re married to the animal? " Although the panel had its lighter, humorous moments, it also dealt with serious topics of pressing concern. Psy- chologist Rollo May rounded out the exploration of the transient nature of morality by stating, " In the Renaissance it was believed that men were guided by two variables — rationality and individualism. Freud proved we are only partially guided bv rationality, and the myth of individual- ism uas destroved bv Marx. Today we have a new value — authenticity. Today we ask, are your feelings toward me authentic and genuine? " In order to attain that authentic- ity, Calderone suggested, " We must establish sexuality as a total part of our personalities. " Cavett then posed to the panelists the age-old question, " Is love necessary in a sexual relationship? " May responded, " Sex is possible without love, but the question should be is sex possible without intimacy? Men and women today have a tendency to grab for ' free sex ' but lack of feeling leads to problems. " SEXUAL MORALITY " In the Renaissance, it was believed that men were guided by two variables — rationality and individualism. Freud proved we are only partially guided by rationality, and the myth of individualism was destroyed by Marx. Marx said that we were all part of one another. Today we have a new value — authenticity. Today we ask, are your feelings toward me authentic and genuine. " Rollo May Dick Cavett ( " Massage parlors have replaced prostitution in many ways. They ' ve become the fast food business of sex. They are instructive, too. " Cay Talese iJr. Calderone then answered the question posed by May, by staling that intimacy, if not love, is an inevitable result of a sexual relalif nship. Cavell cf;nf luded the panel by asking " Will society in the future )c basefJ on the suf)limation of the sexual drive? " , 4dv PiTibarked upon a critique of modern i,.C " , ty and the role played by sex in that sorjely. " One of the reasons we ' re up here is ihrji we represent a society that is going to hell and going there rapidly. " May con- cluded, " Hedonism is a poor foundation for a civilization. " Calderone felt that future society should be based not on the sublimation of the sexual drive, but on an understanding of it. Talese quite bluntly concluded, " Too much sex can destroy society. " Coming from a man who has done six years of intense personal research on sex, and plans to make a large amount of money publishing his findings, this seems to say a lot about the transient and subjective nature of sexual morality. — Abby Sutherland 1 » i B 1 1 jV - • £::m?- - IT T- ORQANIZATIONS ORGANIZATIONS ORGANIZATIO 194 Organizations Imagine this: one day around the end of September, you saunter down McAlister Drive toward Bruff Commons and your link to the civilized world: your mailbox.

The enthusiasm initially felt by the ORGANI- ZATIONS co-editors ultimately sank into an ocean of frus- tration as our hours of stuffing boxes with newsletters brought about as much response as lecturing a deaf-mute sloth.

Alas, immortality must not have been meant to be, for only half of Tulane ' s esteemed clubs and associations made the effort to respond.

M With tuo ' s lfe| It ' s 2:00 a.m. on Saturday, and you ' ve just put in twelve hours of partying, starting with T.C.i.F. on the quad, and ending with a final drink at your favorite bar. You want something to ease your mind, to soothe your soul, and to steady your nerves. You turn on your radio, set it to WTUL, 91.5 on your F.M. dial and settle back. Then you hear it. It ' s amazing! It ' s outrageous! It ' s spacy! It ' s electrifying! It ' s Biz- zare Radio, with two zz ' s! As you ' re sitting back, listening to wafts of " Tangerine Dream " you marvel that something so, shall we say, unu- sual, exists at this institution of higher education. Have you ever wondered though, who the people behind the music were? No? Not surprising. Equally not surprising is the fact that they wish to remain anonymous. They want no credit for what they do, just a couple of hours of your undivided, if somewhat disoriented, attention. However obscure they wish to remain, their presence is still undeniable on campus. In an attempt to learn more about this elite unpenetrable group, I visited them in one of their headquarters, Bizzare South End, otherwise known as a dorm room in Irby. They were all there: Commander Cos- mos, Crash Master General, Short Stuff, Telephone, Dan Skeleton, and The Voice of Reason. The scene was somewhat reminiscent of a superhero epi- sode, complete with five phones, (the Batline?), an assort- ment of crew members openly representing a rogue ' s gal- lery, and even two zz ' s own superwoman, who shall remain nameless. They looked up at me, an oblivious infiltrater. I cleared my throat and hastily explained my mission. I wished to inform the Tulane community of the existence of this bizarre crew. This was not a task to be taken lightly, for as they have proved all too well, little knowledge can be a dangerous thing. The organization of Bizzarre is defined in levels of mem- bership. Unlike the Hindu caste system. At the top are the Staff members, who hold the key positions in the system. The Associate Board, and directly beneath that, the Honor- ary board, is comprised of the friends and " Family " of Biz- zarre. Although the list is rather long, it is important to note that many of its members never existed, or have ceased to. Bizzarre radio has a relatively short history. It originated on the air in the fall of 1976, when a disc jockey unwittingly left his show temporarily in the hands of a group of fresh- men, new to TUL. The songs being played were slightly unusual, and when one of the back-up D) ' s announced their titles, he added, in a fit of inspiration, " This is bizarre radio. " The phrase stuck, and a " z " was added to the spell- ing, making it unique, and insuring a copyright. If for any reason, another college or institution should have an over- whelming desire to use bizzarre, with two zz ' s, as a title, they would first have to secure the permission of WTUL. Amazingly, not a single request of this sort has yet been made. Bizzarre, however, lightly the Tulane community may take it, is a group in TUL, " dedicated to producing quality unusual programming. " Unusual may be an understate- ment. Bizzarre is undeniably, bizarre. The music is weird enough by itself, but when it is combined with a D.j. who delights in playing three or four cuts simultaneously, and adding a telephone busy signal in the background, the results can be mind boggling. " If you are mentally insane, " 206 Organizations we are told every Friday and Saturday night, " then change the station. " Bizzarre people, while not actually mentally insane, often tend to be slightly unbalanced. Off the air, they are mild mannered, and rather subtle in their eccentricities. They are almost a social fraternity, linked together by a love for music, and abhorrence of daylight, and an infatuation with partying. Not to say that this is abnormal at Tulane, but rarely does it manifest itself into fetishes for the color green, or fantasies of hopping around a room naked with a frog in between one ' s teeth! On the air, bizzarre jocks are transformed into hard core proponents of electronic under- ground space music, possessing slightly sadistic tendencies, exemplified by their abusive treatment of ear drums. Bizzarre radio is extremely conducive to certain situa- tions. There are some frames of mind in which electronic, avant garde space music becomes lucid, and begins to not only make perfect sense, but to offer important social com- ments on our society. The disc jockeys carefully design their shows to appeal to a certain, select audience. Usually, people who remain in any kind of radio listening condition at those hours on weekend nights are perfectly content to listen to Evening Star. As the members of two zz ' s will tell you, it is the music that counts. Yet, even if the music is not always entirely appealing, the D) ' s are well worth listening to. The shows have a definite air of professionalism, which saves them from becoming chaotic. Much of its appeal lies in the inter- --+ esting, amusing, and original discourses of the jot ks. Il is ol)vi( us ih,il Ihc r.ulio is a way of life for them. Bizzarre has some v( rv special plans for the future, in( ludinn an .illempl lo put out a ( omedy album, in a style similar to Monty Pythtjn, or Saturifay Night I ive. If originality is the key H success in such an ( ndeavor, they will undoubtahly ex( ( 1. A long term goal is their own radio station, not necessarily in New Orleans, although It wouUi probably do very well here. Experienced listening enables me to prcdic I thai WU R, as they would call (he station, would be dodicatcid to providing cjualily methcjds of musically r)laying with people ' s minds. The opportunities are over- whelming. — Andrea Marks Organizations 207 Combining intensive fund-raising, entertain- ment, and refreshments, WTUL ' s 1978 Marathon netted nearly $2000 for the station. " The marathon was a definite success, " said Maurice Roe, General Manager. " A lot of people worked very hard, some for twenty-four hours straight. Last year ' s marathon made only $600, so the difference is tremendous. " " It pulled people at WTUL together, " Roe continued. " After this year ' s general manager election there were opposing viewpoints among the staff, but people tend to work together during hard times. " Mike Longman, former general manager for two years , organized the Marathon. Scott Douglas, ASB Vice-President of Finance, praised the Marathon as one of the most suc- cessful fund-raising efforts by a Tulane student organization. Beer and food was sold on the quad, and items such as stereo equipment, dinners at local restaurants, show tickets, and plants were auc- tioned. WTUL also sold T-shirts and showed movies on the quad. Three D) ' s working twenty- four hour shifts played requested singles for every donation of five dollars and album sides for donations of twenty-five dollars or more. Roe stated that all the Marathon money would be used to help pay for the station ' s new audio board and turntables. " We were offered a good deal on the new equipment and we decided we better take it while we could, " Roe explained. One example of dedication among the mara- thon workers is particularly noteworthy. Stacey Rosenburg stayed up 130 straight hours. " I was going to try for the world record until I looked in the Guinness Book of World Records and found out it was 36 days.

As the dimensions of the program and the time required in its preparation have grown, Tulane undergraduates have become the primary architects of this continuing series. Upon its inception, DIRECTION was concerned primar- ily with topical socio-political issues. This year ' s theme was Contemporary American Morality: Freedom of Choice? The particular panels dealt with such topics as the morality of the capitalist system, television, science and technology, and sexual morality. Where DIRECTION once hosted six to seven speakers, it now offers 20 to 25 speakers, operates on a budget of over $50,000, and involves approximately 200 students. The DIRECTION chairman is chosen in the weeks imme- diately following the prior year ' s program by a selection committee composed of DIRECTION representatives, an ASB representative, the Dean of Students, and faculty advi- sors. This year ' s chairperson was Susan Horowitz. Susan ' s first task was to assemble an Executive Staff to deal with things such as Speakers, Finance, Public Relations, and Administration. 218 Organizations P% K ' ' 1 ' -i tmiim M dBL. |li .l H Organl iitions 219 Upon returning in the fall, the Executive Staff began its work bv deciding upon a theme for the program and spe- cific topics for the panels. This process was one of discus- sion and debate, involving facts and emotions as the staff members attempted to create a program that would be enlightening and relevant to the students and the commu- nity. This year ' s theme set out to explore the moral dilemmas which face the individual in the modern American society, in other words, is the individual ' s value system a manifes- tation of his freedom of choice or is it determined for him by society. After deciding upon a theme and the particular topics the Speakers Committee began its main task of acquiring speakers. The initial research is essentially a " name game. " Who would be appropriate for the particular panels? How knowledgeable are they? Would Mr. X be a good speaker? These questions were answered with trips to the library, talking to faculty, read- ing National Review, arguing, agreeing, arguing . . . Letters of invitation to speakers began to go out in September. Contacts were also utilized. For instance, George Bush recommended the DIRECTION program to William Simon. Bill Monroe contacted Mike Wallace. Acceptances and rejections came in. Leon Jaworski said no. Dick Cavett said yes. Each panel was carefully shaped to include noted authorities with a wide range of viewpoints in order to insure a lively and informative debate. 220 Organizations " Direction ' 78, by almost all accounts, was an important contribution to the reputation that DIRECTION programs of the past have possessed on the local, state, and national levels as one of the best speakers forums in the country. " — Tulane Hullabaloo By March, the work is done and the panels have been finalized. During the course of the year, the Finance Committee was busy raising the 60,000 plus dollars that would be nec- essary to finance this year ' s program. The largest part of this revenue was raised through soliciting contributions from the community and from alumni. An ASB allocation of $13,500 dollars, a Wilmer Foundation Grant of $8,000 and ticket proceeds of $15,000 constituted the rest of the budget. This money was spent in various ways; approxi- mately $30,000 was spent on speaker ' s honorariums and travel expenses, the remainder was spent on promotion, printing, office expenses, and security. On March 11, DIRECTION offered its finished product to the public. At 7:30 the opening panel took the stage and began to discuss the morality of the capitalist system. The $60,000 budget, the speakers contracts, the manpower, the hours of work all suddenly became a thing of the past. The power of money, monopolies, government ' s obligation to society, democratic socialism, issues, debates, prospects for the future, the " happening " of DIRECTION became the focus of the entire staff ' s attention. — Abby Sutherland THETULANIANS •■ ' ' :v ' vv;-- T.-. } ; -. 53 .Tl 222 Organizations L i— Organisations 223 Operating in con|unction with Tulane University Theatre, University Players produces one-act plays, sponsors " Friday Workshops each week, and brings guest speakers to the campus.

Some individual projects grew and expanded their interests, and this growth caused changes in the way the whole organization operates. Of the fourteen projects, the fastest growing project was a new one. Elementary School Volunteers. It was first cre- ated to help channel Tulane students interested in Elemen- tary education into a real learning experience, where they go to public schools and help teach children. These volun- teers worked with any type of elementary student who needed help. They worked with deaf students, slow lear- ners, fast learners, and even had two Vietnamese students. The Orleans Parish schools which are severely under- funded with a high student teacher ratio, sometimes have to bypass the particular needs of individual students. There was a great need for the Elementary School Volunteers so the CACTUS board decided to make it a full-fledged pro- ject, expanding it from just a placement service for Tulane students. Midge LaPorte was elected chairperson. One of the pro- ject ' s pressing needs was organizational structure. Tulane students who volunteered didn ' t work together in groups, but rather with individual elementary students. Midge not only had to find a way to place volunteers with elementary 242 Organizations Mudents whom ihey were compatible with t)ut also to inslrurl the volunteers on how to create an atmosphere conducive to learning. Some of the training techniques used included getting the volunteer to understand hrjw the children he or she worked with felt about having a tutor, antJ how the tutor could help create a personal understanding so that the children ' s individual diffir ullies with schrjol work could he belter dealt with; In addition, Midge assignee] one CAC TUS volunteer to head the other volunteers at six elemen- lary schools.

Orf ttni dtioiis 243 The students in Environmental Action also confronted environmental issues on a larger scale. When LP L announced the construction of a nuclear power plant only twenty-five miles upriver from New Orleans, volunteers decided to sponsor a speaker ' s forum, in order that all Tulane students could hear both sides of the nuclear energy debate. First, they heard Sam Lovejoy, an anti- nuclear power activist who had distinguished himself by knocking down a four hundred foot weather tower erected by a northern nuclear power utility to check on the spread of nuclear debris in case of an accident. They also invited speakers from Louisiana Power and Light Company to present a defense of the construction of the power plant. After hearing both sides of the argument, the Envi- ronmental Action volunteers chose to oppose the con- siniction of the power plant in Taft, La. They began attend- ing anti-nuke ' protests and events throughout the area. The last one was on April 31, at the sight of the power plant. One of the more enlightening activities earlier this year, was a balloon release at the sight of the power plant. This gave volunteers a chance to see where radiation would be carried by prevailing winds in the event of a serious acci- dent at the proposed power plant. Of the 1,000 balloons released, volunteers in Environmental Action and other anti-nuke groups recovered seventh, all within the New Orleans area. After being unofficially involved in anti-nuke activities, the students in Environmental Action decided to officially join the Oystershell Alliance, a confederation of local groups opposed to the construction of the nuclear power plant in Taft. To officially join, Nancy brought the question before the CACTUS board, composed of the chairpersons of each of the fourteen projects. There was some discus- 244 Organizations sion over whether the Board members could commit themselves on this type of controversial issue. However, during the discussion, some board members stressed thai CACTUS was already committed to other controversial issues by just trying to solve community or campus prob- lems. The board decided to rjfficially join the Oystorshell Alliance, in an almost unanimous vote. The students in Environmental Actirjn also carried their pro-environmental sentiments to the state legislature in Baton Rouge by supporting, through a letter writing cam- paign, the " Bottle Bill. " If the bill is passfd, all beverage containers would have to include a deposit. Such a policy would provide an incentive for the proper disposal of bot- tles and would alsr; preserve resources thai grj into produc- ing them. Environmental Action is an example of a project that not only grew, but also enlarged its volunteers ' hori- zons. The students saw how recycling efforts U-d from the relatively simple collection of discarded cans and newspa- pers to lobbying the state legislature. While Environmental Action tried to prevent future damages thai might result from the spreacl of nuclear power, the Mardi Gras Coalition dealt with more immedi- ate dangers. This project provided trained volunteers dur- ing Mardi Gras to aid people in need of medical attention. Another branch of the Mardi Gras Coalition set up a tele- phone switchboard to provide information and arrange legal aid for anyone who needed it. This year the Mardi Gras Coalition helped more people than in any previous year. Geoffrey Kasher, the chairperson, intends to expand the project to inc lu(Je belter first-aid materials and more medics, so that they (an continue to assist the thousands of people who visit the city during carnival. Organizations 245 While CACTUS and its projects have grown this year, the number of questions concerning CACTUS have also grown. Some Board members felt that an evaluation of CACTUS was needed to determine what progress had been made and what problem areas still existed. Thus began the new drive to gain insight into such questions as: Who is CACTUS really helping? Is CACTUS needed? Why does CACTUS exist? The search for answers to these questions led to heated debates and a revitalization of the idealism that created CACTUS. A new statement of purpose was written that declared CACTUS to be an organization that undertakes the challenge of solving societal problems in the New Orleans community and on campus, thereby extending education beyond the classroom. Late in the year, CACTUS was criticized in an article by the HULLABALOO for spending too much student money (among other things). However, by focusing on the mone- tary aspects, this article failed to see the true impact of CACTUS projects. CACTUS does as much as a student based organization can to ameliorate many types of socie- tal problems. However, those who work with CACTUS 246 Organizations ■ m iJ III wmam i joit. « RECYCLING ,; St CENTER - --iiOfri- soon see Jhat human relations are often at thf base of many problems.

" An evil ogre has banished you into a dungeon and three dwarfs have come by to laugh at your helpless predica- ment, " he said. Was this a dream, illusion, the acting out of someone ' s fantasy or the re- enactment of a Tolkien-type of world? It is all of the above and more than that; it is how the war-game players spend their Saturday afternoons, evenings and sometimes even their early Sunday mornings. These unique and intelligent gentle- men, who not surprisingly, are mostly majors in the study of Science, Mathe- matics and Philosophy at Tulane opt for war games on Saturdays rather than jog- ging through Audubon Park, partying in the French Quarter or participating in other conventional activities. Why in the world do they play these games? " The games are mentally challenging, historically related and sometimes cre- ative, " said Lance Pattost, one of the founders of the War Games Club. " They ' re a lot of fun and fantasy — like sitting down and reading a comic book, " added a teacher at the Univer- sity of New Orleans. After formal introductions were over, most of these players moved to the liv- ing room of the Club President |oe Bratcher Ill ' s apartment to display and describe some of the games, explaining the point of each game and the varia- bles involved in winning. It did not take long to realize that playing war games was a very popular and well-developed national sport. Pattost explained that two major companies that create the various war games, namely. Simulation Publications, Inc., and Avalon Hill Came Company. The Avalon Hill Came Company even publishes a magazine for war games fanatics entitled " The Ceneral. " In the back of the magazine, " Pattost pointed out, " there are advertisements to get in touch with other people who play war games. I searched through my old mag- azines when I came down to New Orle- ans, " he explained " and found a group of them here and I started to play with these guys who are mostly in their late twenties and early thirties. " This experience inspired Pattost and a friend to establish the War Cames Club on Tulane ' s campus in 1975. The club has approximately 14 male members, including two ROTC ' s (3 girls belonged last year). " Rather than paying dues to the club, each new member contributes a new game to add to our collection, " Pattost explained. There are at least 16 commonly played war games with such appropri- ate titles as Air War Star Fleet, Sniper as well as naval games such as Wooden Ships and Iron Men and a popular com- plex fantasy game called Dungeons and Dragons. Dungeons and Dragons is a compli- cated fantasy game involving imaginary characters (sometimes of creations sim- ilar to Tolkien ' s works) and seven vol- umes of rules which are the basis for mythical and real monsters lurking about in the game. It also includes the variables involved in playing. To play, you must first be assigned a character with varying amounts of spe- cific characteristics that are decided by a die roll between 1-18. For example, I had a role to play in which I had a higher than average strength, endur- ance, wisdom, constitution, dexterity, and charisma decided by the roll of the die. I was a cleric rather than a magician or wizard. My height, weight, build, ethnic origin, age, birthday, sexual pref- erence and amount indulged in, pho- bias and ailments were all assigned to me by the die. My weapon was a laser rifle and I was allowed 120 golden pieces. In the game, one player creates his world, bringing in imaginary characters such as ores, dragons, mermen, zombies and hippogrifs which all the other play- ers must interact with. While playing, ail the participants must keep in mind their assigned char- acteristics and variables of the other players. " Certain variables such as you and your opponents " weapons, armour class and dexterity level designates how tough it is to hit and harm each other, " according to one player. A player can meet up with any one of the real or imagined participants with their infinite diversity of specifications during the course of the game. " If you are involved in a sword fight of jouse with an opponent, " explained )oe Samocha, " you don ' t hit each other all the time, sometimes you just clang your weapons together. So it is through the game tables that you correlate (by 252 Organizations reference to each person ' s relevant characteristics) who is beating up on who. " Another war game they play seems realistic compared to Dungeons and Dragons. It is so realistic, in fact, that it was contracted by Simulations, Publica- tions, Inc. for the United States Army. There are two different maps for this game, each one divided into numbered hexagons in v hich a player moves his blue or red cardboard pieces which can denote specific Soviet or U.S. tanks or missiles, a certain number of men and machine guns, trucks and even smoke. The map has foreign-sounding town names, as well as implied forest and roads and red lines representing various ele ations. The point of the game is for the aggressor, who has red markers (repre- senting Soviet men and Soviet equip- ment, I am told) or blue (representing the U.S.) to attack and capture the defender of the town, hill or highway decided by a mission assigned in the game made up by the players. " Fire Fight takes one hour studying the rules and three times playing to learn, " said Samocha, one of the more gregarious members of the club. " Air War takes three days to learn the rules and 500 playing. " " Yeah, 500 B-52 crashes later, you learn, " Bratcher said. " There is a constant checking of rules in these games and sometimes accusa- tions of cheating, " added Samocha. Another game they explained is Wooden Ships and Iron Men. It takes place between imaginary men with )ohn Paul Jonesean ships on a blue- boarded sea. Real battles of the past can be re-enacted or new ones made up. Each person has about three ships which he tries to keep afloat and undamaged while attempting to cap- ture the opponents ' ships. " What you want to do, " explained Pattost, " is try to bring your ships within a range that you can hit him but he can ' t hit you. This is called crossing the bow, which means a raking shot. After that, you close in on them, grapple (by throwing out grappling hooks) and board the opponents ' ship. " FHowever, capturing of the enemy involves many more variables than just delivering a raking shot. Things to be considered are the specified wind direction, velocity and wind change. Other factors to be considered in shoot- ing or capturing ships are the number of men of the respective ships, the quality of the respective hulls, the number of guns each player has on his ship, and Ithe quality of each ship ' s rigging. Between the ships ' specified charac- teristics, the wind, and the roll of the which decides undetermined varia- ■ , your fate is decreed. All that is left I for you to do is to look at the game Mes for you and your opponents ' ;js classifications to find out if you • or swim after a round of cannon fir- ing. One might wonder whether these s play these games strictly for the fantasy, and intellectual stimulalir n Avcd. Is this a way to release penl- rustration or sublimate aggression? The U.S. Army is getting more lved in simulatirjn of battles, rather ■ n actually fighting, since it ' s •iper, " said Pattost. • is also safer. Unfortunately, all the cannot be played out on the board ' • " • fight is. Kingmaker is another board game which perfectly exemplifies Samocha ' s statement that " it always helps to know history in these games " and Pattost ' s remark thai " you learn a lot about his- tory in these games. That is one of the reasons I got into it in the first place. " The game is an historical simulation of the War of the Roses in England during 1450-1490, The country ' s noble families struggled for power during this lime, using ihcir Idrgc privalc armies and pfjlitital influence lo altempi to gain (onlrc;l fjf ihc government. The nobles are said Ir; have used the royal families of Lancaster and York as pawns for gain- ing access lo control over England, The game players wilh Iheir liiilc cardboard pieces and ( orrcsponding noble ( ards play oul the bailie by draw- ing cards from one deck, thus augment- ing their slrenj lli diirirn; ih ' ' JVimc by receiving cards that denote more titles and offices to be had for nobles, merce- naries to be hired (for example, the Bur- gundian Bowmen) and bishops and an archbishop to use as a power-influence in the House of Lords and ultimately to use in crowning a new king. By drawing from another deck, Ihe player follows the instruclions upon it, primarily trying to capture the last of Ihe eighl rivals of one of Ihe Royal houses for Ihe throne of England, eliminating all other rivals Ihrough combat. This des( riplion of some of the games Ihese guys play hopefully juslilics why I felt as though I was in a (Jifferent world during last Saturday afternoon ' s encounter.

" Thus, Franklin Adams decided on four blue rabbits as the finishing touch for a palnting-in-proc- ess. His paintings are strong and happy experi- ences for the viewer, and the details of his cre- ative process could sparkle through hours of discussion; yet Adams, an Associate Professor of Art at Newcomb College, has a wealth of surprises to pull from his bag of accomplish- ments. His creative work also Includes sculp- ture, carpentry, graphic design, theatre, film- making, and exhibition design. Most recently, he played a major role In an event which touched the lives of most New Orleanlans; The Treasures of Tutankhaum exhibit at the New Orleans Museum of Art. Adams designed the Installation for the exhibit, with a design considered by many to be superior to previous exhibits In both Chi- cago and Washington, D.C Having designed exhibitions for NOMA on a free lance basis for years, Adams was well qualified for the TUT project. Nevertheless, the high security and high traffic of the exhib- ition was unique, and " a super experience In terms of what we all learned from it. " Adams was asked to design the exhibition in November 1976. In January 1977, he met with the designers from the other six museums receiving the exhibition to discuss " basic agreements as to its design, " although no two exhibits have been alike. Adams designed the exhibition down to its working details, including thearchitectural drawings. He supervised its installation on a day-to-day basis beginning the summer before Its opening. A general contractor was hired by the museum for construction purposes. According to Adams, the logistics of such an operation were " Herculean. " " I went to Wash- ington to see the show when the crowds were there. We learned from the problems that a first exhibition would naturally encounter. Thank God we weren ' t first! " His subsequent design was Influenced by some aspects of the Washington exhibition. For example, the gray toned walls at the NOMA were the same tone as walls in Wash- ington. The lighting was also similar, although Adams was not directly Involved with this. " At first we thought we might make it mire bright, since Egypt Is a sunny, bright land, but we decided in favor of the more somber, eerie colors. " Adams attlrbutes the relatively smooth oper- ation of the recent exhibition to " one meeting after another, from the beginning of time to the end of time. We had to anticipate every- thing which might go wrong; the people who would faint, and so forth. There weren ' t as many problems here as In other cities, and It ' s really to the credit of the museum staff here. They ' re very capable. " Adams was also responsible for other aspects, such as the signing, and the oljelisk outside the museum. " wanf to make magical the ordinaty, both in terms of image ty and material . " — Franklin Adam 292 Academics Making Magic in His Art His brown eyes above a full, dark beard are kindiv, intelligent. The comfortable practical clothes — a work shirt, blue corduroys, tennis shoes, the casual articulate manner — all cre- ate the picture of a person of receptiveness, warmth, and sound, critical advice. His combination off ice workshop is analo- gous to some of his own creative work: abun- dant, and slightly askew at first glance. A sec- ond look reveals that, however, its contents are not merely clutter, but ordered disorder; parts ot paintings, sculptures, a tool bench, desk and the various paraphernalia of an artist. When did he know he would be a painter? When my doctor told my parents I would be ■ e, at the age of three. They were very ■ .ouraging. " His own father was an architect, ■j dams remembers looking at blueprints ■nan early age. He was born )uly 22, 1933, in )acksonville, ■ ' da. He received both his BA degree in art i-a his M.A degree in painting from Florida State University- Tallahassee was a lot more invigorating - j- one might expect. I liked the smell of the j.e from the beginning. " He describes the -e spent there as a " lively period " in that a jp of creative persons in various artistic -3ia were all caught in the general air of ;,tement. dams himself was involved with the thea- tre, and has done extensive work as both a designer of sets and costumes for theatre, bal- let, and Carnival floats. In 1966, he formed The New Orleans Croup, for the creation of intermedia works. " The group was short-lived, because my co-conspirators, two other Tulane faculty members, both left town. " As a graduate student, he became influ- enced by a professor, Karl Zerbe. He described Zerbe ' s imagery as distorted and decorative. " I don ' t care how you paint, so long as you paint well, " he remembers, with an excellent imita- tion of Zerbe ' s German accent. Adams became interested in collage, and although he no longer practices this technique, his present use of the three-dimensional in his work is of a similar sensibility. Adams came to Newcomb in 1958, orginally to teach graphic design. He now teaches painting and drawing, and has been Curator of Exhibitions at the school gallery for many years. His paintings do have parts. Abstract with figurative elements, they often include a three- dimensional component, and must be disas- sembled for storage purposes. Various parts hiding behind each other in the shop included wooden hearts, and an aluminum colored quilt. " PBY Over Neptune Beach " leaned against the wall, a large, house-shaped, rela- tively flat painting of metallic gray, with a red square on either side for effect of that tension he is fond of. The title is spontaneous, and per- haps loo highly personal to have meaning for most viewers, said Adams. " My titles are highly spur-of-the-moment. This one comes from a kind of airplane which used to fly over a beach I visited as a kid It was about these same col- ors. " As a painter, Adams describes himself as a " synthesizer taking various elements and put- ting them together and " trying not to interfere with the image. " " I believe that paintings are interpreted pri- marily on an emotional level. I want to make magical the ordinary, both in terms of imagery and material.

Amidst book titles such as Fundamentals of Palentology, Geological Surveys and Composition of Scientific Words, and among detailed draw- ings of sea shells and rock and fossil samples. Parsley clarified this state- ment. He remarked, " I would imagine a philosopher would be more prone to look at a mountain range in terms of its value of beauty. A geolo- gist looks at it in terms of dynamics and forces of the earth. They also look at it as a thing of beauty, " he added, " but they see more than just a pretty mountain range. " Parsley, it seems, believes that a scientific outlook can extend rather than narrow one ' s vision of the world, in opposition to those critics who charge that scientific professionalization leads to an immense restriction of a scientist ' s vision. " You find humanists that are very narrowminded, " Parsley replied to the critics ' charge. " You mention science to some peo- ple and they say, " Oh, that ' s science ' as though it ' s jabbering in Chinese and it ' s incomprehensible. " As would be expected of his discipline. Parsley travels often — as much as he can. When he was an undergraduate, he did " a lot of running around outdoors. " He went to the Canadian Rockies, the Adriondack Mountains and did field work in the Applachians. " I collected fossils there for my dissertation, " Parsley said, humorously adding, " I camped in a lot of cow pastures (to do it). " Parsley spends some of his free time riding long distances on one of his three ten-speeds. " I enjoy canoeing and belong to the Sierra Club. My wife and I have season tickets to the symphony and when I get the chance, I also like to read, anything from history to science fiction. " He especially likes the author Solzenitsyn and would some day like to go to Russia. A high point in Parsley ' s life thus far was " when I was a boat driver pull- ing away from Lee ' s Ferry, Arizona. We really took some rapids, " he said. " It was an exciting time for the students too. " He had to be an apprentice for three and a half years before he was allowed to navigate down this river which he described as ranging from " ripples to the fastest piece of navigable water in the world. " The literal low point of Parsley ' s life he said was " when I was lying in a pine tree, " after bouncing sixty feet down a cliff face that gave way while he was doing field work at LSU, last summer. " I ended up with a broken leg and a broken arm and I was darn lucky to survive. " Making sure not to overstate anything. Parsley remarked about the incident, " that was a bummer. I gladly would have forgone that experience. " 296 Academics EARTH SCIENCES Working twelve years at Tulane has made Parsley inescapably aware of iome o( Ihe problems that exist at this University. The first things ho men- Honed which annoy him are " the decrepit condition of the buildings " adding. " I ' m not terribly happy about the athletic deficit. " Wilh a football sitting on his shelf, imprinted with the 1973 Tulane 14-0 VKIofv score over ISU, Parsley said, " If the football team can make money JOd mainlain acacJemic standards, fine. If they can ' t, they should gel rid of «l. academics should come first. I ' m dubious about whether (President) H knev ran make Ihe team work.

For 35 years the Norwegian-born professor has been teaching chemistry here. The past several years Jonassen has devoted himself exclusively to the teaching of students in the engineering school. Next year he will give up one-third of his present work load to leave himself more time for the many other activi- ties that hold his interest. The list of lonassen ' s activities and achievements is long and varied. For twenty years he was a consultant for the Naval Weapons Center in China Lake, California. During this time he helped develop the Pola- ris missile. In 1952 he became a consultant for Exxon, a position he still holds today. This work he finds fascinating; he enjoys being involved in the energy situation. His experience with Exxon has also proved valuable in that it has helped him relate to the engineering stu- dents he teaches. In addition to his position with Exxon, Jonassen has recently become a consultant for the Preservation Office of the Library of Congress. He plans to work on a method of stabilizing the paper in the Library ' s books, since paper made after WWII only lasts for about 25 years. His work with the local Nor- wegian sailor ' s mission and his international work with the YMCA will help take up his spare time. Jonassen ' s interest in Tulane can be seen from the work he has done with the univer- sity. He has been the head of Tulane ' s chem- istry department and was the first p rofessor- in-charge of the JYA program in Britain. The future of Tulane, Jonassen believes, is promising. The fact that it is in the " sun belt " helps tremendously with the present energy situation. In fact, he thinks the South has the opportunity of going to the national forefront in various academic disciplines. Tulane ' s stu- dents, he feels, are one of its biggest assets, and are one of the main sources of enjoyment in his academic work. " Working with students has made up for the low salaries and lack of support through the years, " he quips. " I enjoy working with young people. " Jonassen has made a point of memor- izing names and knowing faces, and he says it pays off. He enjoys following his former students, many of whom have found places in universities around the world. It is also nice, he says, when peo- ple he has taught 30 years ago come by 298 Academics to say hello. Jonassen finds teaching engineering students a challenge. " Teaching only engineers, you have to really show them, " he says. " But when you ' ve got them, you ' ve really got them; they pay attention. When they come to class they take notes; they don ' t read the Hullaba- loo. " On the whole, Jonassen looks back on his career with satisfaction. Although he didn ' t originally plan a career in chemistr he has no regrets about the decision. H views his career as the central focus in h life. " I have accomplished most of what have set out to do, " he says.

In April, professors Robert XtcKay, Carolyn Weaver, and War- ren Weber revealed they had all accepted jobs from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute. .All three professors had left VPI only two years ago to accept positions at Tulane. VAcKay and Weaver cited " per- sonal and professional disagree- ment with the chairman " of the department. Dr. John Moroney, as the reason for leaving. The program itself had been ini- tiated through the endowment of a seven figure grant by Charles .Vlurphy, a member of the Tulane Board of Administrators, and Presi- dent of Murphy Oil Corporation. Murphy ' s long standing interest in the area prompted the donation to encourage growth in the field of political economy. President Sheldon Hackney stated that the grant made Tulane ' s the first privately- endowed political economy pro- gram in the nation. The funds would allow the hir- ing of four additional faculty members and the implementation of senior workshops competitive to those of other major universi- ties. Graduate and faculty research would also be expanded through the funds in addition to an annual series of symposiums on topics of current interest and importance. Designed to bring more imme- diate benefit to students and the community in general than other " think tank " courses, the inaugu- ration of the Murphy program des- ignated the need " to stimulate teaching and learning in the area of political economy through study of the relationships between the economy, liberty, and state. " With courses like Public Choice, and Soviet Economics, already offered at the undergraduate level. Moroney had hoped to have the program running at " full strength within two years " with the addi- tion of courses like Economics of Crime, Law and Economics, and the Economics of Property Rights. The program was also hoped to bolster the undergraduate ' s chances in the job market by pro- viding students with " an outstand- ing background for post-graduate work in law schools, graduate schools of business administra- tion, or in traditional liberal arts educations in political science or economics. " The set-back at the beginning of the program was admitted by Moroney to be a major stumbling block to the achievement of the program ' s goals. Yet he felt that despite the temporary weakening of the department ' s program, it would not be a permanent loss. " It is unlikely that we ' ll fill these positions for next year, but I am confident that we will be able to recoup the losses, " concluded Moroney.

The Committee found that " the number of student groups on cam- pus engaged in an incredible array of activities was something that was ' right ' about Tulane. " Organizations that bring " cul- tural events " to the University met with high support from the stu- dents. The attrition study, part of the report, conducted by Tulane ' s Affirmative Action officer Carol Boardman, revealed that over 17% of students who had left Tulane felt they were average. The Task Force study reported that students felt that " if you are not involved with a fraternity or sorority social life is dull. " According to the report, " what many students are unhappy about is the existence of what they per- ceive as an extremely rigid dating system — the necessity to struc- ture social interactions with the opposite sex as a formally choreo- graphed ' date. ' " The Committee concluded, however, that although " both men and women can find this situation uncomforta- ble ' they end up perpetuating it. ' " The Committee agreed with the solution offered by the students themselves that there should be more coed housing. Along the lines of the housing problem, the report also found that the deteriorating conditions in many dorms detracted from the area where students spend the most time. The Task Force study showed that 52% of the freshman dormitory males were dissatisfied with residential life, while only 36% of the women were dissatis- fied. Committee members were also concerned with the problem of freshman dormitories where there are few upperclassmen to achieve new students on academic and social matters. The Committee suggested that the problem could be remedied by instituting an effective residentially based advis- ing system involving both student advisors and faculty advisors. Boardman ' s Attrition study also revealed that " inadequate aca- demic advising was one of the rea- sons most frequently offered for having left Tulane, especially for Newcomb College students. " On the other hand it found that A S students were relatively satis- fied with their academic advising. Further investigation revealed that on the average Tulane faculty advisors saw their students more frequently during the course of the year than their Newcomb col- leagues. The Boardman subcom- mittee recommended that the Newcomb faculty advisors sched- ule more time for their students throughout the year. In addition, it was found that many students were disappointed " that university resources that they believed should be used in more appropriate ways are being expended lavishly on the football program. " Finally the Committee reported on the tensions existing between certain religious and ethnic groups on campus, reaching the extent of " a pattern of residential segrega- tion. " Such factions provided loci of identification and belonging for their participants but they also set up mechanisms of exclusion, " the report added. " Remedying unsatisfactory situ- ations may or may not significantly lower the number of these who leave; it will certainly enrich the lives of those who stay, " the report concluded. 302 Academics Looking at Tulane Introspectively Curriculum in all of Tulane ' s eleven colleges underwent intense scrutiny by Dr. Earl Harbert (A S, English) and his University Self-Study committee in order to evaluate its weaknesses and recommend alternatives to the present course requirements. Tulane is not unique in its ambi- tious venture. Schools across the country are re-assessing their under- graduate and graduate curricula, ana- lyzing how it responds to the needs of the students. In 1%8, Tulane submitted a tradi- Itonal self-study to the Southern Regional Association (SRA) which incorporated a massive amount of information crjncerning inventory, budgets, and budget proposals from all divisions of the University. The SRA considered the Tulane study tfj be a model ior other univer- sity self-studies. Because of this achievement, Tulane was given the opportunity to undertake an innova- tive approach to the next self-study due in 1978, " President Hackney and Prr vost Stevens have taken a very active role in our study, " said Harbert in the I Curriculum Self-Study headquarters localffj in the Hcjwarcj Tillon I ibrary, " They ' ve askecJ scjme pretty Icjugh questions. " Hackney serves as a member of the Board of Trustees of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. The Board recently pub- lished a report entitled " Mission of the College Curriculum " concerned with undergraduate curriculum. What is there that is unique about an engineering education? Is there a method or philosophy to the social science curriculum? These are the types of questions the committee has been faced with and ultimately must answer. " Some of the material is quite speculative, " noted Harbert. " For example, trying to consider the role of the performing and visual arts to life on campus. " Harvard ' s curriculum study recom- mends a return to a " core curricu- lum, " a curriculum which requires the student to take a number of Cfjurses in various fiekJs oi study. Harvard President Derek Bok in an interview with the New York Times said that the proposed core curricu- lum represenlcd an cfffjrl to " restore rrjherenc ( ' anri a sense oi cduta- lirjnal priorities. " I larberl feels lh,jl rillhounh ,i return to a ( orf ( urrii ulurn may he onsid- ered, it is the quality of faculty utiliz- ing that curric ulum whi( h is most impfjrianl. " Currif Ilium is not ,i suhsliliitf for a first-rate faculty, " he states. " The quality of the instruction in the class- room is the most important single thing. " Harbert also noted that a curricu- lum study was needed in order to adjust to the changing career inter- ests of today ' s students. He pointed out that a higher per- centage of students are pre-profes- sional and that they identify them- selves as such much earlier in their college careers. Will a new curriculum at Tulane be restrictive, detracting from the stu- dents ' input into determining the structure of his own education? " You have to have some kind of direction, " Harbert responded. " The question of frc cdom of choice is a complicated ()n( . There is a sacrifice. One would hope there is a compen- sation. " As Tulane takes its place among universities and colleges vying for the shrinking pool of top college- bound students, it must institute pro- grams whi( h suit Ihc needs of those sludents. By dec iding whal courses should or should no! be offered, Harbert ' s (omrniltee has Ihe difficult task of focusing jn Tulane ' s e(lu( alional role as well as delinin ils priorities for the future — Dave Oppliger Academics 303 ENGLISH Andy Antippas Thomas Assad Michael Boardman Philip Bollier Purvis Boyelle loseph Cohen Robert Cook Pelor Cooley Dale Edmonds Richard Finneran Peter Classman Earl Harbert Marvin Morillo Edward Partridge Donald Pizer loseph Roppolo loseph Simmons Gerald Snare Alexander Stephens Maaja Stewart ■ Academics FRENCH AND ITALIAN GERMAN Catherine Brosman Paul Brosman eber Donaldson Simonne Fischer Ann Hallock ieanne Monty Harry- Redman Victor Santi Elizabeth Wilson Thomas Zamparelli Ann Arthur George Cummins Bodo Gotzkowsky Karlheinz Hasselbach Susan Layton Thomas Starnes LAW i nomas Andff?

Burlie Brown Charles Carter Peter Cominos Edward Cunningham Charles Davis Raymond Esthus Sylvia Frey Richard Greenleaf Sheldon Hackney Kenneth Harl Francis James Henry Kmen Richard Latner Radomir Luza Colin MacLachlan Bill Malone Samuel Ramer Hugh Rankin Robert Stevens Bennet Wall Ralph Woodward Gertrude Yeager Caught in the Tenure Cmssfire One of the most controversial issues of the last two years at Tulane has been tenure: who gets it and who doesn ' t. One of the figures in the whole debate and unfortunately, one of the losers, is Dr. O. E. Cunningham of the History Department. Cunningham will leave Tulane at the end of the summer after having been denied the almighty tenure. Cunningham had gained the approval of the History Department with what the Department Chairman, Charles H. Carter, called " a comfortable margin of support. " Cun- ningham ' s request was then sent to and denied by the Ten- ure Committee for a reason of " inadequate proof of schol- arship, " meaning a lack of quality publications. Cunningham says, " I enjoy writing and doing research and I ' ve done quite a bit of that, but I prefer teaching. Communication is where the fun is, talking with people. I thought that was one of my primary responsibilities. " He feels that there is going to be a lot less emphasis on communication in higher education in the future. " Writing is going to be emphasized heavily because people who write are more prestigious and the heads of departments derive great satisfaction and more grant money from this prestige. But they ' ve got a point of view, too. Writing is something you do on your own time if you have the time and the patience. " The Promotion and Tenure Committee did not question the excellence of Cunningham ' s teaching ability. It was his " quality of scholarship " that played the decisive role and that is where the controversy over this particular tenure decision seemed to lay. After several appeals, Cunningham " thought the situa- tion had been resolved last year when the Committee on Academic Freedom and Responsibility suggested a com- promise. I was told that the administration agreed to it, and then changed their minds, which I find quite provoking. " He went on to say, " I won ' t say that I ' m exactly thrilled with everybody over in Gibson Hall, but I like the teachers and students here. Some of the Administrators are good men, but I don ' t think they handled it very well. " Cunningham ' s tenure rejection sparked considerable student response. Students began forming a committee to protest the decision and letters poured into the Hul- labalioo. Cunningham was described by the students as " an excellent educator and a true asset to the University. " One student said, " I cannot understand why there would be any doubt as to his contribution to the aca- demic world both in and around Tulane University. " He was also described as a dynamic speaker and " an energetic and informative teacher " as well as a " con- cerned advisor " to students. In an editorial in the November 19, 1976 issue of the Hullabaloo, ASB President Constantine Georges charged that student opinion had been ignored and that the question of tenure for Cunningham " was part of a greater issue which began to emer ge of the difficulties of this problem. " Cunningham has been at Tulane for 6 years and feels that " the students here have been good. Some of them goof off too much but that ' s not unusual. " He would like to continue teaching but says that, " I don ' t know if I will be able to continue teaching or not. The job market is bad right now. Most schools are letting people go rather than hiring them, " So far, no definite job is in the future but he has applied to schools all across the country. He says " my most promising prospect at the moment looks to be Vir- ginia; so, there ' s a good chance I ' ll be heading there. " One reason Cunningham has enjoyed Tulane is the courses he has taught. " War and National Policy has always been my favorite course to teach. I never got to teach Military History of the Civil War before I came to Tulane. " He explains further, " I ' ve always been junior faculty and haven ' t been able to pick what I wanted to teach. I ' ve got a background in Urban History and Middle Period but I kind of always wanted to teach military history and Civil War. That ' s one reason I ' ve really enjoyed Tulane. I get to do my own thing. I was really trained primarily as a military historian and I like to use my training. It ' s a waste not to. " 306 Academics He is presently working on a book, but has two papers to finish before he can resume his work. " My book is primarily Urban History, it ' s about New Orleans politics. It ' s about the first black city councilman. He man- aged to stay in office for almost 50 years, which for a black man in New Orleans is pretty remarkable. He died in 1914. " Cunningham humanizes military heroes for his students, thereby exploding many myths learned in high school. " When I was a kid, I thought that George Washington was the most boring person in the whole world. He never did anything except cut down cherry trees (which he never did) and then I discovered that he was quite human. He liked pretty girls, was in love before he married Martha, and he enjoyed war. Wash- ington said one time that the ' zing of bullets was a sweet sound. ' He liked reading, playing cards (lost a lot of money playing cards) and in general was a very normal person. He had a bad temper though and was a pretty tough fellow if you crossed him. " Cunningham is planning to go down the Grand Canyon as part of the colloquium sponsored by the Earth Sciences Department. " I go every year and get wet. I broke some toes the year before last. The year before that I fell out in a rapid. I wouldn ' t miss it for anything. Once, I actually shot a major rapid in 1976 with a lit cigarette. They said I couldn ' t do it but I did. I ' m going to miss that. " According to Cunning- ham that colloquium is one of the best programs Tulane offers. " Really good faculty and a great bunch of students are involved in that. I ' m going again this summer. So as my last act as a member of the Tulane faculty, I ' m going to get wet again " — Jeanne Banner Academics 307 MEDICINE Row1 Assaaf Abdul-Cani George Adrouny Krishna Agrawal Naurang Agrawal Thomas Akers Kemal Akdamas Harish Anand Anne Anderson Willard Andes loseph Arcos Akira Arimura William Baricos Hiram Batson German Beltran-Mora Teal Bennett Robert Bermudez lames Bohn Susan Boston Cyril Bowers Richard Brunstetter Caria Burgess David Burgess .

Every year some 45,000 students apply for entrance in one of the nation ' s 120 medical schools. After spending four long years trudging through biology, chemistry and physics courses with a constant vigilance on the GPA, two-thirds of these students will be rejected. The irony of this collegiate phenomenon is that these pre-med students know that they have only a 33% statistical chance of making it. If they are among the lucky " 33% " who are admitted to a medical school, they can expect to put in four more grueling years of school, one year of internship, and another as a resident. And, if they want to special- ize in some aspect of the medical field, they can expect to add at least two more years of study. What then, motivates a person to subject themselves to such hardship? The American Medical Association might answer this by saying that its members were motivated to choose their respective careers out of a desire to serve others, a search for knowledge, and the mental challenge the medical profession offers. Granted, most of us outside the medical field would accept these as factors which lead students to strive for the M.D. initials after their names. Yet inevitably, the sneaking suspicion arises when we see doctors earning $60,000-plus salaries that money, job security and social status must be included in the list of factors. And undoubtedly, many of us non pre-med majors at Tulane have heard sto- ries of the pre-med major who cynically boasted that the only reason he was going to med school was for the money. Fact or fiction? In an effort to answer this question, the lAMBALAYA staff distributed a survey on the values and motivations of medical st u- dents at random, through campus mail. To be quite frank, the response (15 surveys returned) was anything but enthusiastic. As such we make no claims about the results of the survey being representative of the 600 Tulane medical students and certainly not of the 60,000 medical students across the country. Rather, we hope the reader will view the results as more on the order of 15 interviews rather than a comprehensive statistical survey. Much of the survey — and what we consider the most important part of it — was designed so that the respondents would reply in essay form. Nevertheless, we have included the statistical information that was com- piled to provide a background to the essay questions. It should be noted that the idea for the survey and this article is drawn from a story which appeared in the Ian. 18, 1978 issue of " Medical News, " a weekly tabloid newspaper devoted to the medical profession. In the article the newspaper interviewed only four students from Albert Einstein College of Medicine and one from the Rochester University Medical School, both in New York. One further note. Two of our respondents, apparently offended by the survey itself, questioned whether the pollster was " just another frustrated med school applicant, " or an " embittered rejected applicant? " Let me state here that this writer has never applied to a med school, nor ever even entertained the thought of doing so. 310 Academics The queslionnaire contained five questions. On the first question, the Tulane med student participants were asked to rank, in order of impor- tance, their obiecti es for becoming a doctor. The following categories were ranked numerically — 1 being most important, through 6, least important: Ser lce lo Others. Search for Knowledge. Parental Influence. Interest in Medicine. Wonev. Social Status. Of the fifteen respondents, seven rated " Interest in Medicine " as their number one objective, and seven rated " Service to Others " as most impKjrtant. In fact, the composite totals for both categories turned out to be 23 points. (The composite total is simply the sum of the 15 individual scores. Thus, the category with the lowest composite total would be the one which the respondents considered most important.) The second question asked was, " Why do you value your 1 ranking as most important? " The respondents ' comments included the following: — " Because interest in medicine was the major reason I wanted to go lo medical school, w ilh service a close second. And I feel my interest will help me become and continue to be as competent as possible. " — " The goal of medicine is to serve mankind, to alleviate suffering, and upgrade the quality of life for future generations. " — " Obviously there are many ways to achieve all the other objectives. It you aren ' t highly motivated towards medicine for itself, there is no point in going to medical school. " — " Service to others in medicine is gratifying in a way which cannot be experienced in any other profes- sion. " — " Because service to others is the function of a physician. " — " One may serve others, seek knowledge, and obtain social sta- tus in many ways. The determin- ing factor is where your interest lies. " The number two ranking among polled med students tended lo be " Interest in Medi- cine " if their number one choice was " Service to Others, " and vice versa. The respondents ' fifth and sixth choices tended to be some- what evenly divided between the categories of " Parental Influ- ence " and " Social Status. " The overall composite totals in order of impKjnance were " Interest in Medicine " (23 points) " Service to Others " (23) " Search for Knowl- edge " (50) " Money " (61) " Social Status " (67) and " Parental Influ- ence " (73). Although none of the respondents chose " Money " as their first objec- live in becoming a doctor, only one respondent gave it the lowest rank- ing, with the majority ranking " Money " 3rd or 4th in priority. The third question on the survey used the same scale, but dealt with how the med students observed the objectives of their fellow students. Granted, med students perceive themselves as entering the medical field lot high ideals, but what about their fellow students? As it turned out, the composite rankings for this question matched Ihoieof question sti almost exactly, the only exception being that " Serv- ke 10 Others " (31 points) fell lo second place behind " Interest in Medi- cine " (20) As for deviations, one student did break away from the other re pondenis. and ranked " Money " as the most important objective arTKing his fellow med students, with " Parental Influence " and " Social Status " as his perception of their second and third most important objec- liv«. The final two questions dealt more directly with money asa motivating factor in choosing a career in medicine. Quite simply, the merj students were asked: " How important is money in your decisK.)n to become a doc- tor ' " As may be seen in the following responses, the answers varied tre- mendously: — " Money IS impfjrtani only insofar as it provirJes financial stability.

" — " Only as important as it allows me to be my own boss, lo do things for myself and others. " — " Not very important. My alternative lo medicine was becoming a missionary. " — " It is important because by the time I gel out of school, I will owe about $30,0CX). Therefore, I need to pay this amount off with proper inter- est which will be a very significant amount. " — " I see medicine as being a lucrative field, but there are many other, far easier ways lo earn the same amount of money. Money is important in that it is necessary for living in our society. " — " Only important in that I want to make enough money lo eat and have a home. " The last question once again dealt with the respondent ' s perception of his peers: " With jobs having become more scarce in the last ten years, do you feel that the job security offered by a medical degree has become more of a cons ideration in student ' s decisions lo enter medical school? " Once again, the responses ranged from one extreme to another: — " Definitely not. Some students who apply to medical school may feel that way, but I believe they would be weeded out during the inter- view process. I ' m sure that most medical students realize that they will always have a skill thai is marketable, but I hardly think Ihey lake " job security " into account when deciding to try for medical school. There are too many other considerations to straighten out in your head. If you want job security, you might just as well join the Army. It ' s a hell of a lot easi- er. " — " I feel that this is a definite factor, at least in my decision. " — " No, because you are always so worried about getting in medical school that you do not always lake other considerations into account. I have gone to medical school because I wish lo have a meaningful career and I feel medicine is just such a career. " — " Yes, probably very much so. " — " Contrary to popular beliefs, most physicians do not become wealthy. There is a dif- ference between affluence and wealth. More important than money, I think, is the guarantee of a continued need of your ser- vices and, hence the security of a job rather than constant income. " — " Most of my classmates have at least one parent who ' s a doctor, so I ' d say parental influ- ence is usually more important than job security. " — " lob security has been and always will be a factor that is considered when deciding upon a career. I do feel that the job security offered by a medical degree has most certainly become a more prominent con- sideration within recent years for those entering the medical profession. " The message from the Tulane med students who were surveyed seems lo be clear: money and |ob security are definitely factors in their career choices, but certainly not the most important factors. If they were out lo just make a buck, as they say, there are a lot easier ways of making il then going to law school. Their colleagues and themselves, the Tulane med students say, are motivated lo become doctors by much higher ideals — a combination of a desire to serve others and the mental challenge offered by the medical profession. One of the Tulane med students perhaps best summed up the feelings of his colleagues on the question of money when he wrote, " I feel that most people are in medical school for a variety of reasons, job security is more or less jusi icing on the cake. — Greg Ptacek PUBLIC HEALTH lames Banta Philip Beckiord Elizabeth Bennett William Bertrand Walter Burnett Flora Cherry Dorothy Clemmer Barnelt Cline Cesar Corzantes |.

The center is the region ' s first interdisci- plinary undergraduate program in public policy and was designed to provide study of the broad range of problems facing public policy makers at the local, state, and federal levels. With the aid of a $350,000 grant secured from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation in New York, the interdisciplinary program will incorporate existing courses with the departments of political science, econom- ics, and sociology, and the Schools of Pub- lic Health and Tropical Medicine, Law, and Social Work. " Introduction to Public Policy, " to be offered in the fall, would join two existing political science courses, and one sociol- ogy course as an opportunity for students " to acquire a good liberal arts background with a career orientation, " explained Peters. As a valuable preparation for students aspiring to attendance at a law school, Peters felt the program " recognized that government is now a large employer. The major combines a good liberal arts study with an examination focusing on what governments do and how they do it. " The allocated funds from the foundation will go to hiring several undergraduate assistants, and to help increase the How- ard-Tilton Library ' s current holdings in the area. In addition, the program promised a key characteristic in its internship require- ment.

" " Small. " His rhetorical style is just one of the factors which make George Hen- drickson one of the more engaging members of the Tulane community at large. It contains a refreshing directness and honesty, justly combined with the right amount of salty humor. Mr. Hendrickson employed all three as he spoke about himself, his profession and the department. The theater department ' s senior faculty member first came to Tulane over thirty years ago. In that interim he has served as chairman and taught various courses focusing primarily on his specialty, theater design. A lot has happened in thirty years, and this provided George Hendrickson with a unique and valuable perspective — one that is not accessible to the newer faces who occupy the theater and speech building. George Hend- richson is a part of history. In 1946 he saw the department christened, and witnessed its adolescent growth and brief fame as it gained national rec- ognition. Unfortunately he also heard its cry of despair as eight faculty members walked out, taking with them the life blood of the institution. Throughout it all, he remained optimistic. Whyi ' Mainly because he feels that the theater department was overrated in the 1960 ' s. " Lipmann came here and brought the Drama Review with him, which helped. And as president of the American Theater Association he spread its reputation. We became well known. The department was good then. but it wasn ' t great. It wasn ' t a Yale or a Carnegie Tech. " Its downfall occurred in 1968 when the department demanded more rehearsal space as well as a theater plant. The administration, short of funds, was willing to compromise on certain issues. The faculty wasn ' t. Eight of them quit, leaving the department practically barren. George Henderson remained. " At the time it happened I was at Boston University so I didn ' t get emo- tionally involved. I didn ' t like B.U. and came back here. By that time everyone had left, so I stayed on. " Professor Henderson admits he does not know what he would have done if he had been caught up in the controversy, but admits he is glad he " wasn ' t here for the ballyhoo. " As he reached for his second pack of Pall Malls ( " I ' m no good without a cigarette " ), I asked Professor Hendrickson what he saw the Theater Department developing into. Exhaling, he replied that, " The department has no point of view of what it should be, either a program of liberal arts of geared to turning out professionals. " He outlined the need for a theater plant, more monetary support, and more emphasis on the BFA degree if Tulane hopes to upgrade the theater program. To gear the department toward professionalization, the actors, says Hendrickson, would need specialists who could teach both body movements and speech.

' Well, pooh on you, Mr. Lippmann, If you don ' t like it, go to New York. " Except for summers in the Calskills ( " We got free room and board and $25 a week, which barely kept me in cigarettes. " ) during his graduate days al Yale, Hendrickson has never worked professionally. Does he have any regrets? " Everyone has regrets. Everyone would have liked to have designed the sel for one Broadway show just to prove to himself that he could do it. But I have freedom here. The director and the set designer work more as equals al this level. In New York the director acts pretty much as a dicta- tor. " George Hendrickson will ho leaving the deparlmeni al Ihc end of ncxl year, a victim of mandatory retirement. He admits that his plans after he slops leaching are fairly indefinite, and he is unsure whether he will be designing any fulure sets for the theater department.

In his 21 years of teaching he has progressed from an assistant English professor to an associate professor to a professor. Since 1972 he has been the Pierce Butler Professor of English. This year, Dr. Pizer has the honor of being the Mellon Professor in the humanities. Born in New York City, Pizer lived his teenage life in California. He attended UCLA, where he received his doctorate in English in 1955. After serving two years in the U.S. Army, he began teaching English at Newcomb College. Dr. Pizer has taught a wide variety of English classes, from Beowolf to Virginia Wolfe, from fresh- man composition to highly specialized graduate work. His specialty is principally American literature, with focus on fiction of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Included in this time are such authors as Mark Twain, Henry James, and Th eodore Dreiser. Dr. Pizer ' s duties do not end with teaching. As he said, " The hours spent in a classroom are not indica- tive of a professor ' s work week . . . Univer- sities depend on the active participation of the professor in every aspect of the students ' career of the college. From student selection to graduation of stu- dents the faculty plays a major role every step of the way. " Dr. Pizer has indeed played a major role. He has served on several committees and is presently work- ing with the University Senate. In an average week he spends one third of his time on committee work and collegiate affairs, one third on class planning and classes, and one third on research. His research has led to much professional writing, including five books and numerous essays and criti- cism. He has edited eleven books, written about such great authors as Franklin Norris, Theodore Dreiser, Stephen Crane, and Hamlin Garland. The Novels of Theodore Dreiser: A Critical Study, Pizer ' s most recent book, was published in 1976. The book, which took eight years to complete, led to several other essays and projects. His latest project looks at American Naturalism from the 1890 ' s to the present, focusing on John Steinbeck, Norman Mailer, and Theodore Dreiser. Dr. Pizer hopes to finish this book during his upcoming sabbatical. Dr. Pizer ' s many awards prove that his efforts have " The Mellon Professorship has been the most exciting position I ' ve held, I was very honored to receive It . . " not gone unnoticed. In the ten year period between 1962-1972 he was the recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship, Huntington Library Grant, American Phil- osophical Society Grant, American Council of Learned Societies Fellowship, and the Rosenbach Fel- lowship in Bibliography. He has lectured in Manches- ter, Edinburgh, Sussex, and Hamburg in addition to lectures throughout the United States. This year ' s appointment marks the highlight of Dr. Pizer ' s multitudinous career. In his words, " I would certainly say the Mellon Professorship has been the most exciting position I ' ve held. I was very honored to receive it. " The Mellon Professorship in the Humanities goes to a different professor each year, and is almost entirely based on research. One aspect of it is the Mellon Colloquium; a group of professors and schol- ars who discuss papers regularly. Another aspect is a public lecture which will be given in April. Dr. Pizer has accomplished many things during his 21 years at Tulane. He has ushered in new eras and new classes. He has witnessed many changes on cam- ' pus. Students are more cosmopolitan now. Girls have gone from dresses to jeans. Social customs have changed. New buildings and dor- mitories have brought students closer together. And Dr. Pizer has grown closer to Tulane. In his words, " I ' ve had other opportunities to go places, other job offers, but I ' ve always stayed. I enjoy teaching, and Tulane is a nice place to teach. " — Wendy Dubit 324 Academics " I ' ve had othet opportunities to go places, other job offers, but I ' ve always stayed. " — Dr, Donald Pizer Academics 325 " i was in the right place at the right time, " said Dr, .Andrew V, Schally of his decision to study endoctinology. But it was far more than luck which earned Dr. Schally his share of the 1977 Nobel Prize in medicine. The Tulane professor of medicine and Veteran ' s Administration Senior Investigator can testify to twenty-three years of research, economic ingenuity, and man 100 hour work weeks. Possible applications of his research include development of safer fertility drugs, new contra- ceptives for men and women, identification of hypoaclive and hyperactive thyroids, treatment for peptic ulcers, and help for diabetics. The theo- retical significance of Schally ' s work lies in his proof that the hypothalamus, rather than the pituatary gland, regulates much of the endocrine system. Disproof of a popular scientific theory is no glib accomplishment in a field where rigorous, com- petitive investigation is accepted as a matter of course; but this is precisely what Dr. Schally and his Nobel co-Recipient, Dr. Riger Guilleman, have done. Their research focused on the hypothala- mus, a large, red, bean-shaped gland in the brain, located behind the nose. Early in the 1950 ' s, the work of Dr. Ceoffry Har- ris — the man to whom Schally credits his present interest in hormone study — suggested that cer- tain substances produced in the brain controlled the release of hormones from the pituitary gland. These hormones, in turn, direct the activity of many vital body functionaries, including the adre- nal glands, the reproductive organs, and the thy- roid gland. Dr. Harris ' hypothesis was manifestly counter to a widely-accepted postulae that the pituitary gland alone was responsible for the release of its hormones. Dr. Schally ' s fascination with hormone research stemmed from his undergraduate studies in Scot- land and England during the late 1940 ' s. Through- out his career, he continued his research on hypo- thalmically-produced substances, eventually suc- ceeding in isolating, identifying, synthesizing, and clinically testing his results. It was not until 1968, said Dr. Kastin, a research colleague and fellow Tulane professor, that Schally ' s team dared to call these suljslances " hormones. " Investigation was continually aggravated by the fact that the hypothalamic hormones were so chemically active, and therefore produced by the brain in such small amounts, that a hundred thou- sand brains would yield only a few milligrams of pure testing material. This potential economic roadblock was sur- mounted by the donation of approximately one million pig brains from Oscar Mayer and Co. If purchased, the cost for test material alone would have been roughly $500,000. A single gland weighed one three-hundredth of an ounce, and Tulane Receives First Nobel Prize about one billionth of an ounce of hypothalamic secretion could be extracted theoretically from it. Separating, purifying, and identifying such small amounts demanded such methods as col- umn chromatography, electrophoresis, and CCD. Dr. Schally, and a co-worker. Dr. Murray Saffran, also found it necessary to devise a test system for measuring the secretion of a pituitary hormone with the use of isolated pituitary fragments. Precisely because these hypothalamic sub- stances were extracted in such small amounts, sci- entists at large remained sceptical of their very existence. Dr. Schally ' s discoveries were rein- forced and substantiated by those of Dr. Roger Guilleman, each of whom received one-fourth of the prize money. Guilleman and Schally collabo- rated for five years (1957-1962) at Baylor Unix - sity, Ijul for the last fifteen years have led ttjf own independent research teams. Often the IJ3 would arrive at the same results within month T eac h other. When asked why they hadn ' t wor i together. Dr. Schally smiled and said, " There v " certain personal differences. " Dr. Guillemai s currently a researcher at the Salk Institulti 326 Academics Lalolla. Caliiornia. Dr. Rosalyn Valow ol eu York won Ihe remaining hall " of Ihe S145.000 prize money for her work in the discovery and de elopment of radioim munoassay, technique using radioactive substances to find and measure precisely minute amounts of bodily substances, such as hormones, in Ihe blood. Schally ' s work in neuroendocrinologv has resulted in the identification of these hypoth- alamic hormones as peptides — short chains of amino acids. Some of these peptides isolated include LH-RH (lutenizing hormone-releasing hormone), CH-RH (growth hormone-releasing hormone), THR (thyrotropin releasing hormone), and an antagonist of MSH called MIF (melano- cyle-stimulating hormone releasing factor). After isolating these substances, Schally (iciluced (hemical structures for several and then explored methods of synthesizing them and con- structing new analogues. The importance of such syntheses is economic as well as scientific. For instance: " synthetic LH-RH might cost ten cents a milligram, but the natural material from pigs costs several hundred dollars a milligram, " he explained in a lecture at Tulane University. In another case, a reaction which might have cost S26,0(X) to run was cut down to SIO.CXX) merely by using an appropri- ate catalyst. A later phase involved testing the reactivity of the synthetic peptides compared to that of natu- rally occurring ones. Clinical tests were docu- mented in such disparate locations as japan, Mex- ico, Brazil, and England. In fact, it sas through this world-wide travelling that Or Schally met a Brazilian hormone scientist. Or .Ana Maria Comare. Not only did she do research for him in Brazil, but eighteen months ago Ihe two were married. She now works with her husband as a researcher at Tulane Medical Comer, and, when queried, spoke enthusiastically of Ihe possibility of using CH-RH to prevent pre- ocious puberty. " Dr. Schally has demonstrated a basic relation- ship between Ihe central nervous system and the hormonal control of Ihe body, " reads a report from Tulane Medical Center ' s public relations office. Yel Dr. Schally still feels thai his under- standing of these hypothalamic secretions is inad- luale and plans further testing and research, filth one-year-old Andrew Victor Schally was liorn in Viino, Poland, and received his under- graduate training in Scolland and England.

A quote from an earlier inter- view summarized his sentiments best: " 1 feel very deeply moved that Ihe Nobel Prize Committee lelt my work was worthy of this great honor, the greatesl honor lli.il rxisis in medicine and phy- siology ' — Laura Starks A(.i(U ' mUs J27 Four Stories in the Cellar The library, perhaps the most visible symbol of academia at a university, contin- ues to be the subject of controversy at Tulane. For the past few years the Howard Tilton Memorial Library has ranked last or very near the bottom of the list of 94 librar- ies at colleges and universities comparable to Tulane in quality, in almost every cate- gory of expenditures. In the category of total expenditures, for example, Tulane ranks 88th in a field of 94 libraries in the Association of Research Libraries, 90th in the acquisition of new books for the fiscal year, 90th in expendi- tures for book binding and other book repair work, and 90th in the median pro- fessional salaries of its personnel. The rather dismal position that the Library is in prompted Professor Charles T. Davis, Chairman of the University Senate Com- mittee on Libraries to say that the relative decline of the library in the past decade has been so substantial that the " only direction we can now go is up. " Academics A 13% increase in the library budget this year caused some " faint glimmer " of hope among the Committee members, however, the budget increase will primarily act in only preventing the library from falling still further behind. Something in the orc er of a 40% increase in the existing budget is estimated for the library to reach the median average of expenditures of its sister libraries. The library ' s deficiencies are frustrating to student and faculty members in light of the fact that the intercollegiate athletic depart- ment has run million dollar plus deficits year after year — money which could go to the library for internal improvements. The Committee was also con- cerned with the noise level in the library. They concluded that the reason for the high noise level was something the stu- dents knew all the time. The library serves as " the de facto social center for the campus. " The library at Tulane is a favor- ite place for students not only wishing to escape from the noise of the dormitories in order to study, but also to make a date for the upcoming week- end. In this respect, at least, the library is near the top of the list in social studies. A(,)ilcmics f ' J ' ) HONORARIES Phi Beta Kappa € Paul K. Allen l5( ' W( y D. Arc her, |r. IJarry W.

The 3-8 team everyone and no one cared for. Second year Head Coach Larry Smith had improved on his 2-9 coaching debut in ' 76, but by the sea- son ' s end, it was no secret that a majority of the Wave ' s players did not like him. And how could they? After the ' 76 season, Smith, referring to his offensive strategy, admitted to placing all of their " eggs " into one basket and having dropped them. Quite a mess, mind you, and in ' 77, it wasn ' t much better — it was more of an egg toss. The few they caught dazzled the fans, and those they didn ' t, well . . . At Memphis, about the only thing Tulane would win came in the form of the opening toss. For the Tigers, under the direction of quarterback Lloyd Patterson, the game meant 409 yards of offense and a 27-9 win against an over- worked Creenie defense. On the other hand, Tulane on their first offensive series, fumbled the ball three times in a fashion which would become well-known to Creenie fans by the end of the season. Stanford ' s Cardinals were a big favorite that next week as 30,482 turned out at the Dome to see the Wave ' s home opener. Behind the arm of Heisman candidate quarterback Guy Benjamin, Stanford was bringing in one of the nation ' s best passing offense combinations. Despite a " positive effort that deserved special recognition, " as quoted in a HULLABALOO editorial the following week, Tulane fell in the final moments, 21-17. The team, however, proved that they were not the pushovers the critics were predicting they would be. Few will forget their fourth quarter first-and-goal goal- line stand that kept Stanford out of the end zone time and time again. Offense for the Olive and Blue had looked to be a question mark. At the beginning of the season, Tulane had placed high hopes on the performance of running back Reggie Scott. Virtually unstoppable in pre-season scrimmages, some experience observers were predicting that Scott would go over the 1,000 yard mark in one season. But the week before at Memphis he had gone down with a pulled hamstring in the Wave ' s first offensive drive never to completely recover. All was not lost, however. Coming off the bench, sopho- more running back Marvin Christian proved to be the sea- son ' s biggest surprise. Rushing for 144 yards on 23 carries against Stanford, it was Christian ' s determination that would continue to set an example for the rest of Tuiane ' s on-off offense throughout the season. 340 Athletics T.T( Athletics 341 LMiiiSiSajBS ■ ■i iJ-li J.- ' The next week at Southern Methodist University, Tulane ' s offense would never look so bad and yet so good in one game. Wave kicking specialist Ed Murray notched an early three for Tulane, but SMU soon took advantage of an unprepared Wave rolling up 28 unanswered points — a barrage that stemmed from a controversial 104-yard interception return by the Mustangs. Not only did the SMU player making the interception later admit that the ball had bounced off the ground, but game films show that he stepped out of bounds on his TD scamper as well. In the second half Tulane ' s quarterback Roch Hontes completed a sensational jj of 42 passes for 373 yards. Hontas shattered several Tulane records as he became the nation ' s number one percentage passer. But in the final drive that could have won the game, three of his near- perfect spirals were dropped by key receivers who had otherwise enjoyed a flawless half. Tulane went home, having been burned again, this time on the bottom side of a 28-23 score. As if it were going to be any consolation, it was said that Tulane was the best 0-3 team in the country. And perhaps they were. The next week, Vanderbilt ' s Commodores were in town and the Wave ' s defense handed the Tulane community a desperately needed 36-7 win. Literally forcing seven turnovers, the Wave ' s defense made the big piays to give Tulane ' s otherwise ineffective offense several opportunities to score. The 36-7 victory found Coach Smith ecstatic. Calling the win " the best team effort since I ' ve been here, " Smith added that, " the key thing was that we made no mistakes. " Tulane had not fumbled or thrown an interception the entire night. Athletics At Boston College the following week, Wave hopes for a two game winning streak seemed justified. With time running out late in the fourth quarter, Tulane was up 28-27. Boston had just scored, and their coach opted to go for a two point conversion rather than an almost certain tie. In a one on one situation, Tulane defender, Bob Becnel, appeared as though he would be the team ' s hero, standing up B.C. ' s running back at the goal line. Tulane ' s defense had seemingly preserved the win. But after the ensuing kickoff, Tulane quarterback Tommy Hightower lost the handle on the ball on the very first play. Boston recovered, kicked a field goal, and went away laughing 30-28. It was that kind of year. Everyone was laughing except for Tulane. At least Homecoming weekend brought a brief reprieve before the end-of-season onslaught. Cincinnati was in town that week and had had a fairly decent season up to that point. Yet Tulane ' s defense came through again, this time forcing five turnovers. Ed Murray ' s clutch field goal in the fourth quarter provided the difference as Tulane squeaked by 16-13. Georgia Tech dropped in for a visit the next week, bringing their wishbone offense (something that most of Tulane ' s players had never seen). Noting recent history, which records Tech ' s dominance in the rivalry series, they once again succeeded in belittling what little confidence the Wave players had acquired from Cincinnati. It was becoming obvious that Smith ' s PMA (Positive Mental Attitude) program was not working. The Yellow Jackets had little trouble in rolling to a 38-14 win. V r .

Walk-on quarterback Bobby Rodwig had been awarded his first start with both Roch Hontas (sprained ankle) and Tommy Hightower (hip pointer) sidelined. On defense, co-captain Gene Forte ' s knees kept him out, and the remainder of the squad was held together by yards of tape. Tulane would be on the road for the next three weeks, receiving plenty of publicity. First there was a visit to Pittsburgh where Tulane found what it was like to " play " the defending national champions. For two series, Tulane ' s defense held admirably. But then Pittsburgh ' s Panthers decided it was time lo play a game of " name that score " as they blanked a battered Wave, 48-0. Some may never forget how Wave running back Marvin Christian had to break two or three tackles just to get back to the line of scrimmage. The ninth game of Ihe season sent Tulane to sunny Florida for a ( lash with the University of Miami. Thai week, the Miami newspapers carried several stories in whal was something of a major controversy concerning Miami ' s hcdfJ ( ( d( h l(ju Saban.

Word was getting around that the faculty was thinking about passing a resolution to abolish football at Tulane. That resolution passed through the A S faculty (101-12) in a special meeting the following Tuesday. On the heels of a 47-8 defeat in the snow at Rutgers, Tulane ' s football team had made it easier. The Newcomb and Grad- uate faculties would soon pass similar resolutions which read in part, " intercollegiate athletics at Tulane University has led to a continued great waste of our limited financial resources, and thus to a weakening of our academic responsibilities. . . the only solution is to end such an ath- l iic program. " It wasn ' t anything they did, " commented a dejected Coach Smith after the Rutgers loss. It was what thoy hadn ' t done — like not holding on to the football. After looking at the game films, the coaches said they had counted 38 misserj tackles that week. Tulane had also fumbled the ball 10 tirnfs. Irjsing 7 of them. There had not been a loss as devastating since 1965, when Louisiana State University mangled the Wave 62-0. The following week, the Green Wave would have to face those Sun Bowl bound LSU Tigers in New Orleans for their final game. Despite overwhelming odds that the game wouldn ' t even be close, over 70,000 fans turned out to see the LSU- Tulane rivals do battle once again. In a complete turn- around performance, Tulane ' s inspired defense had the Dome shaking when they led 17-7 at halftime. On offense, Hontas was staying in line as the nation ' s number one per- centage passer, finding his reliables like Alton Alexis, Nick Anderson and Skip Charles throughout the night. The run- ning backs. Christian and Jeff Jones, were doing their part picking up critical yardage. It didn ' t seem possible, but LSU was losing face. If it hadn ' t been for their trickery on a fourth quarter punt return handoff, Tulane may have won the game that fans on both sides admittocJ the Wave deserved. Even though LSU won 20-17, their players had been stunned. Athletics 349 For Tulane, it seemed a fitting end to a long season. It had been the kind of game a team needs to look ahead after an inconsistent year. For Coach Smith, the end of the 3-8 season marked the start of a frantic search for the qual- ity high school recruits he would have to have. His contract was scheduled to expire after the coming season. And recruit he did. On paper, Smith ' s new 30 were look- ing as good as any Tulane had ever signed. Five were listed by the polls as among the nation ' s top 80 prospects for the recruiting year. Another hopeful sign was running back Willard Browner who transferred to Tulane from Notre Dame. Browner reportedly could start for any team, any- where, and will be eligible to play for the Green Wave in ' 78, The movement begun by the faculty to abolish intercol- legiate athletics at Tulane had temporarily been curbed with the announcement by Edmund Mcllhenny, Chairman o f Tulane ' s Board of Administrators, that Green Wave foot- ball would continue in 1978. Yet, with the intercollegiate deficit for the coming year expected to crest at close to a million dollars, it is doubtful for how much longer Mcllhenny could continue to justify spending that much money on a losing team in a school which was financially unstable. At least for one more year, however. Coach Smith would be given the chance to prove that Green Wave foot- ball was good for Tulane. — Frank Brill 350 Athletics 1 Athletic fi J ' il -■ " ?- ,.„ l4t.KB T .» BASKETBALL Fans were expecting a lot. After steering the Wave to a 10-17 season in his debut as head basketball coach at Tulane, Roy Danforth had Green Wave fans eagerly expecting a v inning season. Premature optimism perhaps, but the young coach brought impressive credentials from Syracuse where he had guided his team to the semi-finals of the NCAA in 1975, It was an achievement that found him named the East ' s Basketball Coach of the Year. In his first year at Tulane, Danforth had everyone ecstatic as the Green Wave, under the hot shooting of senior Jeff Cummings, upset number two ranked Cincinnati. The 77-78 season looked promising indeed, yet Dan- forth cautioned that, at best, he was hoping the Wave could muster a .500 season. Somehow, 5-22 did not quite equal his cautious goal but, when it was all over, that ' s what Tulane managed. Although no one was looking for any excuses, there were many. Cummings, who had led Tulane to the upset of national power Cincinnati, had graduated. The returning starters seemed to have lost much of the skill and poise they had learned in ' 76- ' 77. In many ways, Danforth ' s sec- ond building year at Tulane seemed more like a first. But there were reasons. At the start of the season, it had been said that Tulane possessed the toughest basketball schedule in the country. With three of their Metro-Seven opponents nationally ranked, and games against North Carolina and Virginia, the argument was not far from the truth. Unfortunately, there weren ' t any upsets this time around. Before it ended, Tulane had only managed to best four unknowns. Namely, Robert Morris, USM (twice), Denver, and Metro-Seven rival. Saint Louis. 354 Athletics Alhlelics 355 The young team ' s inexperience clearly showed. The two experienced seniors in the squad simply weren ' t enough. Senior guard Pierre Gaudin, who finished fourth on Tulane ' s list of " all-time " scorers, had been a disappoint- ment, suffering through a string of illnesses. Although he ended the season as the team ' s most valuable player, aver- aging 13.8 points per game, Gaudin fell short of the pace he set in his two previous years (16.2 in ' 76- ' 77, and 15.4 in 75- ' 76). At center, 6 ' 11 " senior Terry McLean played a much big- ger role than most had expected. McLean ' s efforts did not go unnoticed, and he became a sort of symbol of all-out effort. An example which, at times, would inspire the remainder of the squad. Although the ' 77- ' 78 season had been disillusioning, it was one that many of those who followed Tulane basket- ball will not forget. With each week bringing additional losses. Coach Roy Danforth was drawing a lot of regard in the columns of both local and national sports pages. He had a way of distracting people ' s attention from the disas- trous basketball season by the use of one-liners and amus- ing anecdotes. " I ' ve always said that I would rather be a winning coach than a good after-dinner speaker, " Dan- forth commented in an attempt to respond to a cynic ' s remarks, " But when things are bad, and you ' re invited to talk, " he continued, " what the hell is there to talk about? " All jokes aside, the coming ' 78- ' 79 season seems to be shaping up quite well. Two of Danforth ' s second year recruits, Eric Dozier and Clarence James, were named to the first unit of the Metro-Seven ' s All Freshman team. With the return of rising juniors Carlos Zuniga (Metro All-Fresh- man ' 77) and Gary Lorio (Defensive Player of the Year ' 78), and the early signing of local high-school All American Micah Blunt, another season invites high expectations. For Coach Danforth, the ' 78- ' 79 season is extremely important. With his three year contract due to expire, one of Danforth ' s earlier anecdotes seems pointedly appropri- ate. " There are only two kinds of coaches, " he said, " those that are fired and those that are about to be fired. " Another season like the past one and, well . . . — Frank Brill Athletics :r 7 1977-78 VARSITY ROSTER No. Name Pes. 33 Mike Danforth G 44 Eric Dozier F 10 Jack Fletcher c 42 Marc Fletcher c 14 Pierre Gaudin G 12 Craig Harris G 52 Keith Houston c 22 Jim Hurd C-F 34 Clarence James F 40 George Kloak F 30 Gary Lorio F 50 Terry McLean c 24 Carlos Zuniga COACHES F Roy Danforth — Head Coach Tom Green — Assistant Coach Jim Lewis — Assistant Coach joh n Bobzien — Graduate Assistant 360 Athletics Athletics 361 1977-78 BASKETBALL RECORD Tulane Opponent 77 79 OleMiss 111 76 Robert Morris 88 120 L.S.U. 71 78 S.M.U. 72 66 U.S.M. 74 83 L.S.U. 99 116 Old Dominion 103 108 North Carolina 56 71 Florida State 60 87 Air Force 67 102 Cincinnati 85 87 Florida State 117 93 Denver 85 103 Florida State 70 75 Georgia Tech 62 75 U.N.O. 82 105 Louisville 78 86 Memphis State 63 70 Cincinnati 91 101 Memphis State 86 115 Louisville 58 63 Georgia Tech 86 83 U.S.M. 79 83 St. Louis 70 91 Virginia 85 75 St. Louis 64 93 Louisville 362 Athletics „ s9 : --- Alhlc ' lics 363 BASEBALL ■ ■• ' ■ " i .:--.: - -■r ' : ' :- ' -»r-!.;: ■ -iM «,- ;t t.,:,•.Jf: ' • ;- -, . 1 ■-.: 5 1. ♦ ' ► •l I 366 Athletics Athletics 367 1977-78 BASEBALL ROSTER .

With athletic scholarships and an excellent coaching staff, the Women ' s Physical Education department was able to recruit some of the finest women athletes in the South for their 1977-78 seasons. A busy schedule for the Green Wave Tennis Team, under Coach Lynn Kobylenski, provided strong competition. The team travelled to tournaments in Tallahassee, Florida, Aus- tin, Texas, and Baton Rouge. Kobylenski completed her first year at Tulane by coach- ing the team in improving serves, net play, and most importantly, experience. By building a more aggressive squad, she fe lt that this especially helped their doubles play. Despite the intersquad competition, which is character- istic of any tennis team, the women were a closely knit team, always offering to help each other on and off the court with drills and studies. Jennifer Tuero, the team captain and number one player summed up the team attitude: " We really have a great bunch of girls who care about one another. We had a fan- tastic season, and when we needed those clincher matches we all pulled through, especially at the State Tournament where we placed second. " The women can play for themselves and the team, whereas other sports are strictly team sports. After college, they will most likely play on pro circuits, become teaching pros, or play club tennis. It is the sport of a lifetime. 374 Athletics Being one of the strongest in women ' s sports at Tulane, Kay Wetcalf ' s volleyball team turned in another year of eye-catching records. Their team record of 20-10 included some top place- ments in important tournaments. The spikers finished on top in the Memphis State Tournament, earned a second ! place position in the UNO tournament, and graciously accepted the runner-up placement in the all important State Tournament. Metcalt was quite pleased with her team ' s enthusiasm and accomplishments. Kim Shaw, a Junior, and a strong asset to the team feels that the team has truly progressed since she began playing for Newcomb her Freshman year: ! " My first year, we were a nothing team. Our uniforms were I Newcomb gym suits with the numbers sewn on the back. I We did a little travelling and scraped up every cent we could to eat at cheap hamburger places. Somehow we , managed to finish second in the State. The next year we were declared a varsity sport and given more money. For 2 : years in a row after that we won the state title. " I The spikers now have scholarships and a recru.iting pro- i gram. Shaw feels that, " it ' s great to finally get some kind of recognition for women ' s athletics, especially because we are a small private college. Being in college, it ' s our last opportunity to be on such a team, so we might as well give it our best. " The women ' s basketball team, having only one season of experience behind them in varsity competition, fared well against the many top schools in their schedule. Experience, blended with five new faces on the squad, combined to produce some exciting and winning basketball. Under Coach Karen Womack, the team was heavily drilled and trained to beat their rival, UNO, twice! The Wave finished their season with 12 wins and 10 losses. They did, however, have an outstanding 7-2 record on home grounds. " With hard working and enthusiastic players, and fantas- tic fan support, it is not hard to understand why the team is looking forward to the 1978-79 season, " Coach Womack explained. One of the team captains, Mary Sue Vossen, a Junior and third year player, feels that the team has come a long way in three years: " Three years ago. Coach Womack was hop- ing that at least some fairly decent players would try-out. She hoped that enough would show to make a team. " Now tryouts at the beginning of each season must be limited to a certain number of players. The caliber of play- ers is improving, and the scholarships and recruiting pro- gram will bring the basketball team, as well as Tulane Women ' s Athletics as a whole, into the limelight for years to come. — Nancy Fellman Athletics 375 376 Athletics VOLLEYBALL Athletics 377 1977-78 ROSTER Ann Bruder Cindy Demarest Cina Ello, Co-Captain Claire Frey Barbara Klingman Hi Lang Sandy Paternostro, Co-Captain Liliana Henoa Posada Megan Reilly Gayle Rothstein Jennifer Shaw Patricia " O.J.

When a two-man team is in the boat it is simply the skipper and the crew ' s action that determines who wins and who loses. A single tack (turn) can make this difference. Coming about poorly at any one time may lose the race. Only the calculating skipper and the swift crew win in sailing. The excitement of the race is ascending and does not manifest itself until after the race is over. While racing, a sailor cannot afford to feel the intensity because he she must be concerned with the physi- cal, as opposed to the emotional. As one salty sailor put it, " There is no time to feel the excitement — you ' re thinking about wind shifts, tactics and setting a course. There is plenty of time to feel the day ' s rage! after the race — at the party! " Tulane ' s sailing club has formed a team that is nationally ranked in the top ten. They have done this on their own. Ironically, this team receives minimal support and yet wins, while some of the other team sports have embarrassing records and million dollar deficits. Sailing is definitely a self-supporting sport at Tulane. Sailing is different from the other sports at Tulane. It is a participator sport; it is not a spectator sport. (However, many people do see races like the Ameri- ca ' s Cup.) Sailing is a peaceful sport; it is not a brutal contact sport. Sailors don ' t cut out after college; their sport is a life-time contest combined with pleasure. In short, only those with mental prowess and physical endurance can compete in this parley with nature. 388 Athletics SAILING Athletics 389 The boats don ' t seem to be rivals dueling, but the caicuiating skipper who dares move out of the fish schooi-iike formation often wins the race. Only the smartest combined with the fastest wins. The tension and pressure of the competition is incredible. Up against nationally ranked teams Tulane placed third out of ten schools competing in the Windjam- mer Regatta held at Lake Pontchatrain over Mardi Cras. Not surprisingly, Steve Benjamin, a world-ranked sailor, led Yale to a convincing victory, the gap between first place Yale and second place UCLA amounting to more than 25 points. The difference between second and fifth places amounted to only three points. " One wrong tack in any on race could cost you that many points, " said Jules Ivester (Senior, A S), A-team skipper. Commenting about that one wrong tack B-team skipper, Chris Rosenberg (Junior, Eng.), after the fifth race said, " II only I hadn ' t made that boo-boo we would be in seconc place right now. " Crew for Ivester is freshman David Pogrund (A S). Reach- ing A-team status as quickly as he has, Pogrund proves thai sailing at Tulane is not the rigid, snobbish society that is offer thought of the sport. Pogrund began sailing the boat das: that Tulane races just this year. He said, " Jules taught me al that I know about sailing 420 ' s. We sailed everything — ever a blizzard in Chicago, last Thanksgiving. " Assessing Ivester ' s performance in the regatta, Rosenberi; said, " Jules sailed a really fine race. It ' s when you are sailini against the best in the nation it ' s hard to lose. " 390 Athletics ' i i i ■i iO And Rosenberg should know — ranked number two at his home in the Virgin Islands, he will be sailing in the Sunfish World Championships which will be heki in Palmas del Mar, Puerto Rico. Diana Puig (sophomore, Eng.), crew for Rosenberg, sailed her first boat at Tulane. As to how she was selected to sail in this premier event, Diana admits candidly, " Like the others, I ' m a dedicated sailor whrj practices a lot. " She added with a smile, " I sail anytime I can. " To judge by the Windjammer Regatta, winning sailors are pos- sibly the mr sl dedicated perjple in sprats. The personal stakes ate higher than in large team sports. As Ivester points out: " You are pitting your judgement and skill against all the other sailors. If you Ifjse the only person yrju ran blame is yf;urself. " Perseverance and endurance are prerequisites, says Rosenberg. " Sailing is different from the other sports because you not only have to manipulate your boat, but your competitors, the wind, and yourself. " Competitive sailing is not a part-time sport. These people spend towards 20 hours a week in the water. All those wrinkles aren ' t for nothing, either. Despite most people not knowing it, Tulane has been " nationally ranked for ten years, " says Ivester, adding that " we have been ranked in the top ten for the last six years. " Sailors don ' t receive the benefits that other athletes enjoy. There are no deficits related to these winners as there are no scholarships either. They also bought their boats without funding from the school. The sail- ors win on their own. — Steve Weil 77-78 TULANE HOME REGATTA RESULTS Tulane Invitational 1st Baldwin Wood 1st Sugar Bowl 2nd Windjammer 3rd Athletics 391 Athletics TEAM MEMBERS Tracy Baker Marc Brofsky Gary Dunay Rob Edelstein Bob Flippen Jr. Knut lohnson Alan LeBato Tommy Lehman Curtis Mosley Wes Owens Neil Shapiro )im Smith Roy Smith Coach: Crawford Henry MEN ' S TENNIS Athletics 393 Athletics TEAM MEMBERS Rick Arnstein Neil Bercow Paul Bonin Djamel Charwat Michael Cohn Barry Enlner lavier Gutierrez Richard Knight loseph Knill )eff Kf)f)tman Hamou larbi-fherif MuhamctJ Sac irhey Fred Taylor )ody Fenbrfir k B.

Living in a fraternity house is certainly not a topic to write home to Mom about. Grades, if they are good enough, and women, if you are lucky and not too explicit, will keep mother happy. Filled with dreams of her son the doctor or law- yer, she will be amused by your stories o how few and choosy the women of New- comb seem to be. But fraternity life filled with beer, dope, late nights, and women (hopefully), could only bring a mother ' s warning of " Don ' t you believe you ' re over- doing it a bit, son? Remember, you are almost a man now and you should act your age. " Of the over 150 men who resided this year in the fraternities with living quarters, I imagine few of their mothers know what really goes on in a fraternity house. Most of the 150 survived to return again next year or graduated to go on to the real world. Some did not. My roommate sat out this semester and is now working in Florida attempting to rebuild the stamina required in order to go both to bars as well as class. Much that goes on in a fraternity, because of the beautiful New Orleans weather, takes place in front of the house or outdoors, providing a diversity of human interaction that must delight the professors in the sociology building on Audubon. Looking across the street on any sunny day the Sigma Sus would have moved the furniture out in front of the house and, shirtless, P " i ™ would be watching any coed dressed in gym shorts or a tight shirt. Eventually the afternoon would be culminated by a " douching incident, " with a trash can full of water being dumped from the balcony upon the unsus- pecting sunbathers below, begging retaliation with a water hose. The Kappa Alphas would most likely be on the porch, sitting on the swing or standing, talking with Kappa sorority girls. They also have their water rituals. Using a water bal- loon slingshot made of surgical tubmg they set up a fortress on their balcony, aiming either for women pedestrians or the Freret jet. Usually they miss but occasionally they scare innocent young women and infuriate bus drivers. Walking down Broad- way he would notice the Kappa Sigmas playing bas- ketball, the Delta Tau Del- tas playing their stereo, loud for the benefit of members sunning outside and pedestrians, and the Phi Kappa Sigma band practicing, also loud for everyone ' s benefit. The pledges of Sigma Alpha Epsilon might be seen out cleaning their lions, that are indestructible but a favorite subject for frus- trated artists with a couple extra buckets of paint. t 408 Greeks ,: I RM B M: ' w(t w V I ' P B BkJl wL m U K-@S r ' k. hIsIK m Hlli Hb hJ I H H H Hf MWi F B ID I b HBi ' ' IBt ' Sl ' ' 8n| " SBi f ;; Mfl.

' - .J Living in a fraternity house one must learn to put up with and eventually appreciate all the varied activities of the members, both day and night, that seem to usually center around the house. Friends only come up to talk after you have fallen asleep or before you are about to study. Every- one loves to store books in the safety of your room and there are always favors to be done for the cooks. The bene- fits though especially in the quality of one ' s nightlife, far outweigh any lack of privacy or burden upon your free time. For me, living in Sigma Nu, it entailed a bedroom either for pleasure or just to pass out, only a staircase away from the numerous parties in the backyard or house. Only a block away was the library, for use during the day, and Tin Lizzies or the Boot for the evenings. It meant breaking into the coke machine with the house manager, the man with all the keys, and borrowing all the beer inside beca use you were both broke and it was a depressing Tuesday night. We talked and rank into the early hours of the morning until the beer ran out, at which time we had to run downstairs for coke to mix with the reserve bottle of bourbon. We mutually concelled classes the next morning, a fair price to be paid for becoming the closest of friends. Other nights found us smoking joints on the balcony, not knowing to wave or hide as NOPD drove down Audubon, or break- ing into the room of an avowed agnostic yelling, " I ' ve seen God, I ' ve seen Cod. " It was sitting in front of the television, listen- ing not to the trashy late movie, but talking about history, the horrible government, the decadence of the American public that actually pays attention to TV. It was always having someone to talk with, to drink with if you desired, when you were depressed or mad, and listening to the problems of friends and trying to help. It meant much more than just drinking and partying. Living in the house I became a strong and integral part of the fraternity and learned, to use a trite but meaningful expression, the meaning of brotherhood. Anyone in the fraternity system at Tulane can, and I think most do, feel that they are a brother to the other members. Living in the center of activity of 80 members, brotherhood comes much easier yet I appreciate it even more. I have spent a year living with people I both respect and enjoy and have developed friends that will last a lifetime. I know that if I am ever short on money, there will be a brother at Lizzies to spot me a drink and cheer me up with the pleasant conversation which springs only from the closest of friends. — Ron Steffens Creeks 409 Kappa Qigma Hi Thomas Ashy Scott Bickford Steve Bissell Pat Byrne Ward Cammack )ohn Christman Preston Cloyd Pierre Conner III Dan Conway Paul Doolittle Bob Edwards Dave Foreman Edward Griesedieck III Steve Hall Brad Hastings Paul Huck Arthur " Whit " Huguley IV Bur Jeter Timm lohnson Miles Leverell Keith Loughlin Chris Lucketl Chris Lyons Shine Morgan Bill Mullen Larry Nadel Mark O ' Brien Pat Olinde Scott Paden Mike Parnon Wayne Peacock Chuck Pohl Murray Ross Lee Schlesinger Tom Smith Breck Speed Andy Spielberger Gary Spillane Glenn Sullivan lay Texada |oe Thomas Mike Van Dyck Mike Waterman Charlie White Bob Young I Creeks U-L Claude Blackburn Bruce Blaylock Edv in Boyle loseph Casper Chris Clabaugh Al Curley Powell Dodge Gene Dongieux Steve Farmer Scott Fox lohn Furman Frederick Goldman Brian Hollander Ted Hudgins ln.

When America does what was promis ' d. When through these States walk a hundred millions of superb persons; When the rest part away for superb persons and contribute to them. When breeds of the most perfect mothers denote America, Then to me and mine our due fruition. I have press ' d through in my own right, I have sung the body and the soul, war and peace have I sung, and the songs of life and death. And the songs of birth, and shown that there are many births.

Even though a law student ' s fate is to compete for grades, insights into one ' s character may nevertheless be derived. Pushing oneself to the edge, besides offering glimpses of madness, helps define the limits of one ' s character as " there ' s no success like failure and failure ' s no success at all.

With the new and growing awareness of the need to help the individual develop to his or her full potential socially as well as academically, I cannot help but view this college as one of the best spring boards into the future. Eleanor Roosevelt stated this idea succinctly in 1962 at Hyde Park: " Because I anticipate success in achieving full employment and full use of America ' s magnificent potential, I feel confident that in the years ahead many of the remaining outmoded barriers to women ' s aspirations will disappear. Within the rapidly growing economy, with appropriate manpower planning, all Americans will have a better chance to develop their individual capacities, to earn a good livelihood, and to strengthen family life.

We have contrived to obtain our college degrees in the paradisiacal setting of New Orleans. A mild, perpetual, spring-like climate and every conceivable form of diversion create an ineffable spirit that celebrates life and living. Spring explodes here with its profusion of color and perfume, littering the whole campus with coconut-scented sun worshippers and swarms of whirling frisbees. This is the spirit of Tulane. Because New Orleans is distinctive, Tulane is distinctive; we are a special genre of student. We work hard and play hard and when we leave here, we take with us an inalienable part of that spirit . . . and that ' s just as (or more) important than any college degree. w I ■ " - - 458 classes Daniel Housey Sara Huebner Richard Hyams Mona Issonberg loseph luzzolino Elizabelh lackson Kirk lackson David lee Chris loblon Chris loblon Kathy Kahn Chris Kane Kandy Kazes Suzanne Keddie lames Keegan Nancy Kelly George Keyes Mostafa Khosravanipour Charles Kilpalrick George Kloak Maiory Knapp Richard Kohnke Richard Kootman Mindy Kort Richard Lambert Ronald Lampard Margerel Lanahan Alberl Lang Keith Larner Sherl Larson Andy Lasseighe Charles Latourette William Lazarus Thomas Leach Ruben Leano Peter Legum |ohn Lennox Ian Leone Hugh Lesh Gary Levin Lori Lewis Charles Lincoln Celia Lopez Alberto Magh Gregory Manion lusto Marin |udy Markowilz Susan Marks Patricia Mavromales Richard Mayer lohn McBrayer Bonnie McClain Michael McCullough Kathy Mcllyar Kenneth Mcintosh III Randy MeKey David M( Kissock Hugh McLaurin German Melero losoph Mickel Stanton Middlelon III Lauren Midlarsky Mariana Mikoli Leslie Miles Charles Miller Alex Minno William Miranda Kii hard Mire Robert Mill hell I ynctic Monlero Kathryn Moran Mildred Morgan Stac y Mfjrris M.irth Ann Mueller f liarlynn Muinphrey Allen Nelson Iraida Nigaglioni Paula Nowalsky Nan y Nungesser Sler)h.illie Nuss I isa ( )lii ' il,ind( ' i I i classes 459 Mark O ' Brien Carla Oden Melissa Ogden Robert Palmer lohn Parnon David Paternosiro Jorge Palino Marc Pearl Cynthia Perrone Guillermo Pesant Stephen Pierce Marcia Pitt Kerry Plutte Jeffrey Posta Diana Puig Raul Pujol Jeffrey Quinn Susan Ragde Andrea Ranne Eric Renz Leslie Reskin Lael Richter Alroy Rickerson Todd Ridgeway Michael Riess Cina Rinella Paul Rodgers Jorge Rodriguez Juan Romero Richard Roselli Christian Rosenberg Donald Rothman Jeannette Rullan Mark Ryan Madeline Sable Simone Saidman Andrew Salk Nicole Salomon Peria Saludes Joseph Samocha Sally Savic John Schemel Nancy Schepps Henry Schorr Jr. Frederick Schouest Lyanne Schuster Bill Schwartz Ira Schwartz Kurt Schwartz Matthew Segal Mark Shapiro Matthew Share Grace Shrap Wiley Sharp Doug Sheena Sarah Shields Theresa Shovlain Stuart Simon Gerald Sims Jr. Perry Sims Ellen Singer Mike Skaiiy Barry Snyder Mitchell Sorivener James Speed Christopher Steidle Armand St. Raymond Jeffrey Taleghany 460 classes Richard Tanker Edward Throop Gary Toribio Larry Tortorich Bradley Trumbull Jennifer Tuero Bowman Turlington Stephen Turner Kathy Paul School Class: Newcomb 78 Hometown: Bogota, Colombia Activities: Theatre!!

Career Goal: Law " The primary function of a university revolves around knowledge — the search for knowledge, and, at times, hopefully, the fulfillment of that search. In the ideal sense, this function is a never-ending process. There can never be a final goal for a university, unless it would be the sustenance of this function. Tulane offers a variety of what are called " extra-curricular activities, " that many students are involved in, myself included. There is nothing wrong with a university being involved in these areas. In fact, Tulane ' s contributions to its students and the community are quite outstanding. However, it is my hope that our system of higher education, including but not limited to Tulane, never loses sight of its true purpose: the endless search for knowledge. " wK ' ms.

Career Goal: To make use of my Anthropology major: Hopefully by never losing interest in Man ' s evolution: His revolutions and revelations, hostility and humility, dominance and indomitability — in short, his uncompromising adaptation to this world. " In view of the fact that 1978 is my final year here, I want to extend one last thought to those who remain at Tulane, and especially those who like me, are moving on. ' All our troubles, says somebody wise, come upon us because we can not be alone. And that is all very well. We must all be able, otherwise we are victims. But when we are able to be alone, then we realize that the only thing to do is start a new relationship with another — or even the same human being.

" Looking back to August 1974 I can clearly remember the intense feelings of excitement that I had about first coming to Tulane. Now, four years and four million memories later I am looking at the university from a different perspective. My original excitement has worn off only to be replaced by a feeling of University loyalty and Collegiate identity. Newcomb has become much more than just a name in a college catalogue. It has become my safe little niche for the past four years and soon, as an alumna, it will become an important part of my past. The following is a statement by Lao-Tse that sums up the experience of leadership at Tulane: ' A leader is best when people barely know he exists Not so good when people obey and acclaim him, worse when they despise him ' Fail to Honor people, they fail to honor you,- ' ; but of a good leader, who talks little When his worth is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say, ' We did this ourselves ' .

I came here for academics and will be known for student government, but my fondest, or at least strongest memories of Tulane will be of its people. We have all types here: derelicts, activists, eggheads, freaks, ROTCs, preppies. Creeks and JAPS. Somehow, these disparate groups manage to get along and survive at Tulane. This is one reason why Tulane is such a fascinating place to study. No single set of values can possibly prevail. Not many schools can claim this quality, and most of us will probably never be in such an open and diversified environment again. When I am old and gray and think back on ' the good old days, ' personalities and faces will fill my memories of course, academics and student government have been extremely important to my education, but my relationships with Tulane ' s people have taught me my most valuable lessons.

' 478 classes : N.., TULANE UNIVERSITY The College of Arts and Sciences THE CREED OF THE CLASS OF 1978 (THE CREED OF FYEARS) by Nathan Andrew Lee We are of Art and Science. We endeavor to make our art a science and to make our science an art. We create a concordance, a creed for ourselves in which can be joined these two ways. United within us, within each of us, art and science give birth to a child: a harmony that holds our values which will be shaped by years. We raise the child above us. Therefore, within this concordance: We apply science and art, together, not as things, but as ways. We bind ourselves to nature, to its essence and quintessence; to stand within it and not against it; to create a place within which our child can thrive. We care for the lives of faith and of reason, for feeling and for thought; not to let one outlive the other. We use the curiosity we cannot suppress to overwhelm the ignorance we cannot hide. We feel the space and the frame; we use the circle and the tangent; we observe equally with microscope, kaleidoscope, and mirror. We know the order that is imposed. We seek the order that is hidden. We simplify. We civilize. We inspire. We create. We perfect. In this, we justify ourselves and know that we must justify ourselves, always. ■ Graduates _;.-;•.: -a AaoT Melucnen. ev |erse Paul Richard Allen Magna cum laude Atlanta, Georgia Tulane Bachelor of Arts erome lulius Anderson ew Orleans, Louisiana Stephen Michael Antosca Aashinglon, District of Columbia Dewey Dale Archer, |r.

Witt Puf sfie aithahks §q to Taylor Publishing Company of Dallas, and their representative to Tulane, Mii.:tfisd Elmh :jf_,Theirskill, patience, and good humor have made this book possible. When I took this job, a lot of people had advice to give. " You absolutely have to have a theme, " some of them said. Others stressed " nori-conformity " and the importance of origi- nality. I suppose that everyone ' s suggestion had some measure of validity; yet, like every other Yearbook editor, I basically had to learn for myself what a yearbook could and couldn ' t be. From the very start, I have been convinced that a yearbook is not simply a collection of photographs and list of names. The fact that I am not a photographer, per se, may have influ- enced this conviction. However, it seems to me that if a book is truly to be looked upon as a last- ing record of a year ' s events, it must be more vital and encompassing than a mere compila- tion of images. Alas, this may seem heresy to my lofty, artistic predecessors, but I readily confess my mundane disposition. With the help of several members of the Tulane HULLABALOO staff and a group of free- lance writers, the 1978 )AMBALAYA attempts to cover news, iss ues, and features in a format which is different and, we hope, interesting and entertaining. If we have offended the aesthetic sensibilities of any readers, we make no apolo- gies. I believe that when they unshelve the vol- ume again, in five or ten years, they will revise their initial judgements because, even after it becomes impossible to identify faces and images, the intrinsic meaning of words and the memories they invoke will endure. We have our theme, and it seems completely appropriate and forgivably cliched to viewthe College experience as " the best of times " and " the worst of times. " We have attempted to retain a high level of objectivity and, as money, time and the publisher would allow, a broad coverage of events. This Yearbook may truly be said to have been a group effort. While the effort of some has been greater than others, I would personally like to thank Greg- Ptacek, who stayed to the bitter end, and, Sergio Bakas, who in large part is responsible for the overall design concept of the book. Either of these two would have made outstanding editors, and they have my undying respect for managing to maintain their sanity while working for a manic like myself. I thank the individual section editors and photographers for their efforts. In particular, I Ihank our faculty advisor, Dr. Andy Anlippas, who always managed to say the right thing and who hclp( d make working with the |AMBA- I AYA and attending Tulane IJnivcrsily the best years of my life. I leave now to find my pl.ic r (if there is one) among my ()redecessors, in the plate where all lormer Ye,irbof)k editors go. M.F.W. 49 ' -} As ,1 sm.ill token of respect ,ind apprecuition for his ye irs of serv- ice to the students of Tul.me and the members of the TuLme Media, this hook is dedicated to Dr. Joseph Patrick Ropollo. As a Professor of English from 1950-78 and Advisor to the Tulane Media from 1965-70, Dr. Ropollo has been a positive and vital force in the lives of his students and everyone associated with him. With great interest and expectation we look forward to his future projects and express our thanks for the wealth of knowledge he has so generously endowed upon Tulane students in the past.
