Senior Class Representative Tom Mathews seconded the motion and asked ASUSF President Al Boro for a five-minute recess to discuss the whole matter in private and thereby shorten the meeting. EXPLAIN STATUS QUO The conference assumed order and Boro proceeded to explain the status quo of the whole situation, noting BSC Chairman Ray Casau- doumecq's motion to obtain free bids, and after that motion's defeat, the move by Junior Class President Joe Bondanza to have the ASUSF defray the-cost of bids for the seniors. Both actions were initiated at the Legislature's previous meeting. Boro indicated that a "yes" vote would necessitate bringing back Casaudoumecq's motion, while a "no" indication would result in the A S U S F's taking responsibility for each bid desired by seniors going to the Prom. Chairman Boro also disclosed that a victory for the latter vote, moreover, would detest the quarter-century custom for the third- year students to invite their elders as guests. -The roll-call vote of 10-9 BOB DuRARD 'slush fund' marked the triumph for the negative side, but the outcome was not decided until the very last member, Freshman Class Representative Warren Hinckle, sounded the tenth "no" ballot. SENT TO FINANCE COMMITTEE Sophomore Class Representative Bernie Schneider's 24-day-old motion to grant $50 salaries per semester to five of the Executive Committee was finally acted upon at this session and sent to the Finance Committee for consideration by a vote of 13-6. The motion was officially amended to read "effective beginning in the fall semester of 1957." Between the time that Schneider's motion, previously tabled, i'.«s taken from the table until it was given over to the Finance Committee.. ther» ensued a battle between several representatives for the motion and Bob DuRard, most outspoken legislator against it. DuRard instigated the hassle, declaring "this battle has been going on for months," As far as he was concerned, "the students are well informed ... those I have contacted are unanimously against this grant." ANALYZE THE SITUATION "Let's analyze the situation," he stated: "This fifty dollars—it's an arbitrary figure. Why not $100?" "What's the purpose of it? Why is it being given?" "Take the individual offices. The NFCCS Senior Delegate— what's the payment for? It's payments for (student legislature) meetings—(attending them. What about the NFCCS Junior Delegate? He assists the Senior Delegate. Why shouldn't he get a proportionate sum of $35?" "The ASUSF Secretary— when he runs for office, he realizes the job it entails. The only justification for a grant of some sort for this office is that there is no one under him." "The Head Yell Leader does a tremendous amount of work. But why not give the assistant yell leaders a proportionate sum?" "The Clubs Representative is a president of a club like the other club presidents." DuRard said that each of the organization heads do much the same as the next man. PROPORTIONATE SUM "The BSC Chairman has nine or eleven men under him who should get a proportionate sum of what he gets." Du Rard, an honor student from San Jose's Bellarmine High, inquired, "If you're going to start —Continued on Page 6 Group Petitions Return of KEAR A small but determined cluster of loyal, "fine" music lovers have mobilized themselves on the USF campus to persuade the Federal Communications Commission to reinstate KEAR the radio station dedicated to presenting only cultural music on the AM wavelength. Thereby, KOBY, the very popular radio staion, dedicated Special Events Committee Stages Tickwick Papers' Mr. Samuel Pickwick, the naive, benevolent president of the Pickwick Club, and his small array of literary followers of the 1800's, once again strolled the English countryside—but this time their humorous adventures were not embedded on the printed page but characterized on film before some thirty satisfied viewers in the Lecture Room of Gleeson Library. The film, "The Pickwick Papers" was adopted from Charles Dickens' work of the same title. Originally the "papers" had been published in the London Morning Chronicle under the signature "Boz," as fictitious as the letters themselves, but later they were gathered together and published in novel form. The occasion was the first showing of a series of motion pictures sponsored by the Special Events Conamittee in its cultural program. Next up for viewing is Feodor Dostoevski's "Crime and Punishment" to be shown Wednesday night in the Lecture Room of Gleeson Library at 8:00 p.m. to presenting the "top 40" popular songs, which now occupies the AM spot on the radio dial originally held by KEAR, would be "junked." Said George Bianchi, the leader of the symphony sympathizers, who "appreciates fine music very much": it all boils down to this—San Francisco, a metropolis noted for its cultural interests, should have at least one cultural music program. Mr. Debellis, a noted San Francisco music patron, has gone to Washington, D. C, to petition the FCC and to get back the call letters for KEAR. To do this, he must secure thousands of signatures. Therefore, he has asked the friends of KEAR on the USF campus to assist in circulating his petitions. Although the concerted crusaders for concerts and other "good music" on radio have procured at least 15,000 signatures in the whole Bay Area for KEAR, the petitions of USF are, in the words of Bianchi, only doing "pretty good." In fact, the response, so far, is far from satisfactory. We need many more. He urges all students to sign the petitions, which will soon be posted at various points on campus. Several petitions are now in Phelan Hall. USF's 1956-57 CBA CHAMPS—(top row— I. to r.)

FOGHORN Photo by Russ Goebel Official Notice Academic Vice President Paul Harney, S. J., an nounced the following policies on probation and disqualification will become effective as of the Fall Semester 1957: Probation: Regular students will be placed on probation of 1) in their first semester of Freshman Year they fall six (6) or more grade points below a "C" average, 2) after their first semester they have a grade point of less than 1.00 ("C" average!, Disqualification: Any student will become subject to disqualification from the University if 1) while on probation he fails to maintain a C average for the work undertaken during any semester, 2) after two semesters of probationary status he has not obtained a grade point average of 1.00 (C average) 3) in his Freshman or Sophomore Year he has a grade point deficiency of 12, 4) at the end of the first semester of his Junior Year he has a grade point deficiency of 9, 5) at the end of his Junior Year, or any subsequent semester thereafter, he has a grade point deficiency of 6, * 6) in any one semester he fails to pass with a grade of C or higher in five (5) units of work. Mysterious "Box" Appears Vanishes During Dark Hours USF political circles were abuzz with speculation this week follow' ing the mysterious appearance Monday — and just as mysterious disappearance Tuesday evening— of a large, reddish-brown 'question' box for depositing of a flood of letters addressed to the students from the "Non-Partisan Committee for Effective Student Government." The boxs labeled "for deposit of questionaires,' was placed next to the convocation boxes outside the lounge of the liberal arts building. It was locked shut and chained to a table. ANONYMOUS COMMITTEE This apparently was the work of another anonymous 'political committee on campus. The Committee For Better Student Government, seemingly a seperate group, distributed literature on campus in December protesting the legisla ture's consideration of a scholarship for the BSC chairman. Undercover political groups are nothing new to the Hilltop. Last year one of the most active groups on the campus was an organization of ten seniors who called themselves the "Skull and Sledge," a continuation of a secret society founded by Nicolo Machiavelli in 1518. NOTHING ILLEGAL BSC Chairman Ray Caseudomeq, queried by the FOGHORN, said that "as far as he was concerned," there was nothing illegal about material of this sort being put in the convocation boxes. "Let's say this," he said, "at least there is no constitutional regulation forbidding it." Monday's questionaire, on stationary of the "Non-Partisan Committee For Effective Student Gov ernment," contained five questions covering NFCCS, scholarships for student leaders from student body funds, spending of the activities fee, functioning of various student body committees, and an inquiry if the individual would be willing to serve on a Student Body Com mittee. STANFORD STRIKE Daily Quits to Protest 'Control' By WARREN HINCKLE FOGHORN Staff Writer One of the more blistering student newspaper-legislature battles in local collegiate history blazed down on the Farm last weekend as the Stanford Daily staff went on strike, watched a 'volunteer' staff put out the last paper of the quarter, and finally decided Monday to go back to work when classes resume with a promise to continue The faculty and students of the University of San Francisco wish to extend their condolences to sophomore Kenneth Stone on the death of his father last Saturday. Students are requested to remember him in their prayers. PEPPERDINE COLLEGE Attempting to disprove the old bromide, "Silence is golden," USF's Philhistorians gained points for their argument at Pepperdine College over the weekend. Six members of the forensic group returned with a tie for first place and three ratings of excellent from the major meet with teams from colleges and universities throughout the West, Larry Lujan, Philhistorian secretary, said. Three teams of two members each made the journey south to Points Los Angeles to participate in the preliminary debate contests. Piling up six straight victories, Frank Thomason and Jim Polakof, comprising one of the junior division teams, tied for first place with a duo from Occidental College of Los Angeles. Senior division team Bob Sullivan and Larry Lujan bested opponents three times during the two-day meet, but nullified their victories with three losses. The other junior division team of Grant Sheloek and Bill Kievith won four matches and lost two. All USF teams received a rating of excellent. Participating teams debated on the current National Intercollegiate Debate topic of "Resolved: That the United States should discontinue giving direct economic aid to foreign nations." Currently, the Philhistorians are resting up in preparation for the April tourney in Reno. Most colleges and universities from the Western Division of the U. S. will be represented at the University of Nevada, where the contests will decide who will journey to the National Tournament, scheduled for late in the Spring. When the FOGHORN reporter tracking down the story on the Philhistorian's Los Angeles debate trip walked into the Semeria Room and told Larry Lujan, secretary of the group, that "Father Egan had referred him to Lujan to ask what happened at Pepperdine, Lujan looked hap-askance. "Well," he replied, "whatever it was. we're not committing ourselves." their battle against "controlling" ogislation by the Stanford legisla ture. The heated issue exploded last Wednesday evening when the leg islature passed, 12-4, a by-law calling for recall of the Daily editor by a petition signed by five per cent of the student body and a three- fourths vote of the legislature. The Daily staff immediately voted a protest strike and, after putting Thursday's issue to bed with huge banner headlines and a blasting editorial, walked out lock, stock, and copy shears "until the present legislation be rescinded." A "volunteer1' staff moved in and put out Friday's edition, which was the last scheduled paper until April 1 because Stanford regularly has its quarterly examinations at this time. Reasons given for the action, although the strike was held legally, were that the staff had walked out without concern over advertising contracts, the Stanford Press publishing schedule, and the Constitution that binds it to five issues a week. STAFF RETURNS Editor Dave Scott, 21, who led the walkout, said Monday that the staff would return to work when school resumes, and would cort- tinue the battle against the regulation. "The only way to work for repeal of the measure is to come back. If we had continued, we obviously never would have had a voice in the paper," he said. Thursday's walkout was the result of several weeks of charges —Continued on Page 6 March Convocation Produces 'Firsts' Last Thursday's convocation introduced two "firsts" on the USF campus. First, it was the initial time that a convocation was held, not at Saint Ignatius Church, but in Phelan Hall. Second, it was the first time a lay man, not a member of the clergy, addressed the students. "The only reason it was held in Phelan Hall," Father Ryan, USF's Chaplain, informed the FOGHORN, "was because a lay man spoke. All the other convocations are held in the church. This was rather an extraordinary occasion. "If there will be any more lay speakers," continued Father Ryan, "then the convocation will be held in Phelan Hall, but that would depend on Father Moore. However, there is no likelihood for a lay speaker during the next month. Father Ryan explained, though, that "if an appeal was made for an outstanding lay speaker," one might be procured. Al Boro, student body president, regarded the previous convocation as "very good.' NFCCS Bookings For Europe Tour Show Increase U.S. students optimistic on international conditions are booking summer passage to Europe in increasing numbers. And more ships added to the trans-Atlantic run are making it possible for more student travelers to journey abroad. To meet the increased demand the non-profit Council on Student Travel has just announced several addtional sailings with space for students and teachers. The Council reports that trans-Atlantic bookings by educational travelers are up 15 per cent through March first. Mr. Bowman estimated that more than 10,000 students and teachers will be traveling abroad this summer in educational programs sponsored by the Council's 43 educational and religious agencies. These agencies conduct international educational travel programs in Europe, America, Africa, Asia and South America. By DICK DURIS FOGHORN Sports Editor It was harder this time, but the outcome was the same. USlF, for the third consecutive year, journeys to Corvallis in quest of another NCAA crown. The glamour of the Russell-Jones era was absent this season, but the "never say die" attitude prevailed. The Hilltoppers saw their record run of sixty straight wins snapped. Throughout the season the Don's suffered injuries, confusion and despair that would have caused a lesser team to give up the ghost, the Hilltoppers illustrated that thev were not that team. The odds in favor of USF cap turing their third NCAA cham pionship are stacked against them. No longer can the Don's count on the shock-treatment that they displayed in past years—the opposi tion respects them, but some of the fear that prevailed for the past two years has subsided. After all, the Dons were not even listed in the top thirty teams in the nation. Their days of glory have terminated—why fear them? Russell - Jones notwithstanding, this season's USF quintet may easily rank with the best—a fact that they will have an opportunity to prove starting tomorrow evening. In Gene Brown and Mike Farmer the Hilltoppers have one of the finest one-two punches in the game today. Farmer has been rightly called "The best defensive forward in the country." Obstacles have littered the Dons path ever since the season began and there is little hope that they will subside at Corvallis. USFIDAHO STATE USF squares off with Idaho State in tomorrow evening's lid- lifter, and Cal tangles with the Skyline Conference standardbear- ers, Brigham Young, in the nightcap. The winners vie Saturday. Idaho State, Rocky Mountain Conference titlist, have an impressive, but somewhat misleading won-lost record. At first glance the Bengals 24-2 mark is frightening, but a quick look at the caliber of teams that they faced and this record loses much of its impres- siveness. Seattle University, who handed the Bengals their only two setbacks of the season, was the only top-flight competition on their schedule. Idaho's chance of copping the Regionals received a serious blow when their playmaker guard Jim Rodgers was ruled ineligible by the NCAA hierarchy. The loss of Rodgers eliminates a good deal of the Bengals rebound strength. The spring-legged Rodgers was a tyrant on the boards this past season, and had a far from anemic point average hitting the bucket to the tune of a 19.6 per game mark. TAKES OVER Sensational junior Lloyd Harris will vacate one of the forward spots and take over for Rodgers. Harris replaced the great Les Roh this season and came through well enough to be a unanimous choice for All-Conference accolades. Harris, called by his coach John Grayson, "The greatest little man in the game today," hit over thirty points on four different occasions this season. Gail Sieman (6-4) and Jerry Hicks (6-4) will roam the court for Bengals at the forward slots. Sieman starred in last year's NCAA —Continued on Page 2 LARRY FRIEND Campus Calendar TODAY — Knights of Columbus meet, Gleeson Library Lecture Room, 10 a.m. FRIDAY, MARCH 15 — BASEBALL: USF vs. Santa Clara, Seals Stadium, 2:30 p.m.; BASKETBALL: USF vs. Idaho State, Corvallis' Gill Coliseum.

Banquet Junior Week- ighlights ar. By WILL REITH FOGHORN Staff Writer Not dismayed by the rousing ruckus over whether the Seniors should receive gratuitous bids for the Junior Prom, USF's Class of 58 is looking forward to its social event of the year, the Junior Week, March 17 to 23. The Junior Prom and the Junior ■HHg?. Banquet will be the high points of 1 the week-long program. Tom Leahy, Junior Week chair- g man, who modestly proclaims his office as just "an honorary title," says that the goals of Junior Week "are to try to unify the Junior Class, to provide class spirit, and. in main, to show that they (the 1 Juniors) are in a class." To be held at Ricky's Red Chim- 1 ney on March 20, the Junior Ban- ; quet will feature a roast beef dinner at $3.50 a plate as the bill of j fare. Although the dinner will be served at 7 p.m., Leahy suggests the Juniors arrive at 6. The week will be capped off #™|? TOM LEAHY . honorary title with the Junior Prom on March 23 in the Empire Room of the Sir Francis Drake Hotel. Spring Is Here," is the theme, and bids for this formal affair are now on sale for $2.50. Music for dancing will be provided by the popular Ray Hackett and his orchestra. "We were really surprised we could get him," said Leahy of Hackett, who has recent- finished an engagement at the Claremont Hotel in Oakland. The entire student body is invited. FELL THROUGH Several other activities had been scheduled for Junior Week, but they didn't go through, informed Leahy. "For a little extra flavor we were going to present a concert by College of Pacific's Little Symphony. But that's out now." Bob Bianco, USF student body vice president and chairman of the Special Events committee, later in formed the FOGHORN why the concert was canceled: "COP was not able to arrange a tour to this area at that time," he declared. A variety show, to be composed of USF talent, was also planned, said Leahy, but there was not enough interest in that. "A raffle that we planned," continued the Junior Week chairman, "had to be crossed out, too." DECLARES OPINION Leahy was asked to declare his opinion on the controversy which raged at the Student Legislature two weeks ago. "It has always been a tradition for free bids for Seniors. But we feel we stood to lose money this way. Because it is formal, some Juniors might not be able lo afford to attend the Prom, so why should we let the Seniors in free to our detriment? Tradition is good when it is worthwhile, but it's no good when it is useless." "With Ray Hackett, this year, the Junior Class is expecting one of the most outstanding proms in recent years, and we are expecting a good turn out from the whole student body," said Leahy. Junior Class President Joe Bondanza commented on the upcoming Junior Week. "This is the most efficient group that has ever worked on the Junior Week since I have been at the University. I'm sure that all this work will not go for naught, and I'm sure it will be a great success."
