"Again, we of the University have the occasion to thank our wonderful friends, Charles and K ethryn Kendrick, for their extraordinary generosity," Father Dullea said. Dean Francis R.

The Law Dean added that the scholarships made possible by the Kendricks' will be named In honor of their son, Charles Warren Kendrick, who as a fighter pilot in the Marine Air Corps Charles Kendrick •''•xtraordinary generosity" was killed in the battle of the Solomon Islands. "In this age when the resolve and courage of free men everywhere are being tested again by the forces of tyranny, it is well for us to look back on the individual sacrifices made by Americans in the past," Dean Walsh said. "The School of Law is proud to recognize the resolve and sacrifice of Charles Warren Kendrick." Chief Judge George B. Harris, of the U.S. District Court. North ern California District, and president of the USF Law Society joined Father Dullea and Dean Walsh in thanking the Kendricks. "Their original gift of Ken drick Hall, with the implementation of additional funds, estab lishes a site of legal training and education of the highest standard and unsurpassed in the west." Judge Harris said. Kendrick's acceptance of the chairmanship of the university board of regents in 1959 capped a long and varied career in civic leadership. He helped plan San Francisco's Hetch Hetchy water system, helped raise funds to build the War Memorial Opera House, and was vice-president of the Golden Gate International Exposition in 1930, among other activities. He now serves as a governor of the San Francisco Opera Association and the San Francisco Museum of Art and has long been active in behalf of better United States relations with I-atin America. Mrs. Kendrick i.s known for her interest in the Girl Scouts and has held local, national, and international posts in the movement. She i.s a director of Children's Hospital and the Visiting Nurses' Association. National group Leftists organize student peace union A chapter of the National Student Peace Union was organized on campus this week after a petition was signed by twenty-three students and presented to Rev. John LoSchiavo, S.J., Dean of Students, for approval. The Student Peace Union was European studies available to Dons By Johanna Smith FOGHORN Staff Writer USF students will again have the chance for an academic year aliroad as a result of the European campus program. Participating universities are Loyola University Center at Rome. Gonzaga Center at Florence, and Georgetown-at-Fribourg. Interested students should confer with their deans to obtain further information. Deadline for applications is February 1. 1966. Loyola Center at Rome places 'he emphasis of its curriculum °" the historical and cultural importance of Western Europe and, *Pecifically, Rome. An official curriculum has not yet been published, but undergraduate courses are offered in fhe departments of art. classics, drama, education, history, lan- euage. literature, philosophy. Political science, psychology, and fheology. . The base fee for Loyola, $2300. "'dudes tuition, meals, accom- n>odations, and some travel expenses. Various group tours of Europe, Greece, and the Holy Land are offered to the student at additional .oost. Both sophomores and juniors may apply for a year at Loyola Center. A 2.2 average is required for admission. No foreign language is required since all classes are taught in English. Students attending Gonzaga in Florence are simultaneously enrolled at the University of Florence. In this way they receive some of the privileges of Italian students, such as reduced travel rates and speecial tickets to operas. Tuition, room, board, tours, and tutoring in Italian according to need are covered by the cost of $2700. For two weeks in September before classes begin, students tour Western Europe. A twenty day tour of the Holy Land and the Middle East is arranged for the Christmas holidays.

Bruce Jarvis, organizer of the USF chapter, stated that the SPU believes that "neither war nor the threat of war can any longer be successfully used to settle international disputes." The SPU's statement of purpose reads in part: "Without committing any member to a precise statement of policy, the SPU furthers the study of alternatives to war and engages in education and action to end the present arms race." The National Advisory Council of the SPU boasts such luminaries as James Baldwin. James Farmer. Jules Feiffer. Erich Fromm. Nat Hentoff. Rabbi Isa- dor Hoffman. Linus Pauling. Kenneth Rexroth. Bertrand Russell. Bayard Rustin, and Norman Thomas. The USF chapter, as Jarvis sees it, "will provide a forum for the discussion of issues on war and peace. The speakers will be distinctly liberal or left of center since these viewpoints have been overlooked so far by the existing organizations on campus." Father LoSchiavo, while disagreeing with the principles of the SPU, was more than willing to let Jarvis ask speakers to lecture on campus. As a result. Robert Callhey of the Catholic Worker and Robert Shear, a member of the editorial staff of Ramparts who has just returned from a correspondence post in Vietnam, have been invited to speak in January. Film series The SEC will conclude its "Great Directors Film Series" with the suspense filled "Rififi" directed by Jules Dassin. The film i.s the story of a crime, its planning and execution. In the fined 35 minutes of the film, which shows the execution of the crime, no words are spoken. For those who thrive on James Bond and Napoleon Solo, "Rififi" is a must. University Senate agrees to course challenging procedure A method enabling students to "challenge courses" by taking the final examination before completion of the term has been approved by the Academic Senate. The procedure, other- . wise known as "credit by examination" will allow students who have already covered the material of a specific course to request a final examination early in the term, and passing it. receive total credit for the course. The Senate recommended that a 3.0 grade point average not be considered a requirement for a student to challenge. The resolution now goes to Very Rev. Charles Dullea, S.J., president of the university, for approval before credit by examination becomes a part of academic policy. In other action, the Senate recommended that "a professional study be made to determine whether there is a correlation between drop-outs, failures, and participation by students (estpe- cially freshmen) in extra-curricular activities." Midterm policy was also discussed. The S-enate finally recommended to faculty members that if they wish to give a midterm examination it be given to students on the date designated by the academic calendar. "M idlirm examinations (should be) left to the discretion of each instructor, but progress grade reports (should be) submitted at given intervals during the semester," the senate added. Investigations regarding the possibility of exchanging faculty members between Jesuit colleges and universities and the possibility of a statement of policy in respect to the faculty workload and the acquisition of new faculty members were also recommended by the senate. Blood to be extracted from courageous Dons Students will have a chance to bleed next week as the Knights of Columbus again sponsor their annual USF Blood Drive. Those who are willing to undergo the traumatic experience of watching their own blood drip slowly into a pint bottle may do so all day Thursday, D-scember 16 in Campion Hall lounge. The latter-day Florence Night- ingalees from Irwin Memorial Blood Bank will be on hand to issue kind words of encouragement, caress pallid brows, and generally woo the more anemic members of the student body. Reefreslunents of the high-energy type will be served following each individual bloodletting, probably by one of your favorite USF nursing majors. All edonations collected from the drive will be placed in a general university account, which is available to students, their families, faculty and staff. When needed, the blood is available free of charge, saving the individual twenty five dollars for every pint of blood used. Those wishing to .contribute and who are under twenty-one must have a release signed bf their parents to be presented at the time of donation.
