Center Dedication FridaySeattle, Washington Thursday,November 6,1969

by Kerry WebsterExecutive Editor

Discussion of possible reductions in the core curri-culum requirements dominated an informal meetingTuesday night between members of the ASSU AdvisoryCouncil and the president of the University.

About 27 students, includingASSU President Dick McDer-mott, met with the Very Rev.John A. Fitterer, S.J., presidentof S.U., to discuss his responseto the reforms asked in a recentstudent petition.

Although the atmosphere ofthe late-night meeting was re-laxed, questions remained sharpas the students, sitting aroundthe senate table, on the floorand on the windowsills of theChieftain conference room,heard the president explain hisreaction to each of the petition'ssix points.

The highlight of the two-and-a-half-hour meeting was an in-tense discussion of the Univer-sity's core curriculum require-ments.

A majority of the studentscalled for looseningof the coreto make Philosophy and Theo-1o gy requirements completelyoptional, contending that heavyrequirements in both subjectswas hurting enrollment.

"A great many potential stu-dents are driven away from5.U.," said Chris Bowers, "be-cause we require what amountsto indoctrination in the Catholicreligion.

Fr. Fitterer replied that a"major change" of the core isin the offing, but that the extentof its revision is largely up tothe faculty."I don' t know whether the

Philosophy and Theology re-quirements will be pimply cutback or made completely op-tional," he said, "but Ican tellyou that, there will be consider-able change in the curriculumnext year."

The change, he said, will in-clude return to a five-hour cred-it module.

Since the new core is now be-

Elections Set Thursday

ing drawn up, "now is the timeto getyour requests in," he said.He suggested the council mem-bers work through the Academ-ic Council and the heads of vari-ous departments.

Barry Fountain, ASSU Publi-city Director, indicated that pre-vious attempts to move in thisdirection had met with immobil-ity on the part of department-level administrators.

"Will you help us?" he asked."Will you use your influence toconvince these men to give fullconsideration to a core revis-ion?"

Fr. Fitterer promised his co-operation, while cautioning thathis power as president is limitedby faculty prerogatives in aca-demic areas.

"Can Iassume from this dis-cussion," he asked, "that moststudents want the Theology andPhilosophy requirements lower-ed?"

"We want them optional!" astudent said, backed by a chor-us of agreement.

"Yes," the groupanswered."I am listening to you; Iam

listening to you carefully," thepresident mused.

In other areas, Fr. Fitterermaintained that "nothing wouldplease me more"than inclusionof a student billof rights in theUniversity statutes. He calledfor speedy action by the Com-mittee on Rights and Freedoms,which is in the process of draft-ing such a section.

In the areaof student publica-tions, Fr. Fitterer showed lit-tle inclination toward restruct-uring the University's role aspublisher of The Spectator.

Fr. Fitterer and the councilmembersset another meetingintwo weeks.

Shoulda College GraduateConsider SALES?

We thinkso!There are hundreds of exciting careers. Marketing is one,adynamic one, and,probably the major stepping stone to civic and business leadership.

At Xerox, our people are more than sellers of graphic communicationsequip-ment. They have knowledge of marketing strategy and insight as to how Xeroxcopiers, copier/duplicators and related equipment can meet the needs ofmodern business. They have a healthy regard for the importance of documentflow and its implementation in every size and type company.They are able toadvise businessmen at all levels on their presentneeds and to reasonably fore-cast future developments.Their thinking is business systems oriented, for thisis the waveof the future. That's why we require a college degree.

We have openings at various locations throughout the Western United States.After comprehensive product and sales training, you'll become part of thedynamic picture at Xerox, where operating revenues have increased from $40million in 1960 to over $895 million in 1968, and employment has grown fromapproximately 3,000 people in 1960 to over 30,000 currently.

Excellent salary and incentive compensation in addition to comprehensivebenefits including profit sharing.

VERY REV. JOSEPHPERRI, S.J.

of the Societyof Jesus. Fr.Perriis executive vice-president ofS.U.

The appointment marks thefirst time in the 78-year historyof S.U. that the Jesuit commun-ity's administration has beenseparatedfrom the duties of theUniversity President and giventoone man.

FR. PERRI explained Tues-

day that "the intentionis to freeFather President from the re-sponsibility of the religious su-perior post and allow him to"devote more time to the in-creasing complexities of theUniversity."

The Very Rev. John A. Fit-terer, S.J., President of S.U.,initiated the request for a sep-aration of powers. The move isbecoming common in Jesuitcommunities throughout thecountry, according toFr. Perri.Gonzaga University, for in-stance, recently created separ-ate posts.

THE RELIGIOUS superiortakes care of the "spiritual andtemporalneeds of the 82 priestsand four brothers in the Jesuitcommunity"here.

The job involves "responsibil-ity in matters of health, com-munity decisions and govern-mental policy," Fr. Perri said,"But it is mainlyapaternalcon-cern to make each person's lifeas a religious a meaningful andfull one."

Fr. Perri, who is a native ofSeattle, is also S.U. vice-presi-dent for Unicersity Relations.He entered the Society of Jesusin1938 and was ordained in 1951.

In an interesting sidelight,Father has served as Catholicchaplainof the Seattle Fire De-partment.

Gammas Pledge

By Sharon MichelA Fine Arts major assembly

is scheduled today at 11 a.m. onthe stage of Pigott Auditorium.Each area of the Fine Arts de-partment will be representedonthe program.

Fine Arts To Show TalentsThe drama department will

offer a variety of pantomimesto be performed by ProfessorDore's pantomime class. Mrs.Mandel, newly appointed mem-ber of the music department,will play the piano. The art de-partment will show some sculp-ture and slides about the work-ings of the foundry.

The main objective of the as-sembly, according to Dr. LouisChristensen, department chair-man, is to create among theFine Arts majors an "interdis-ciplinary unity" by sharing pro-fessional experiences from allfields, and at the same timefoster a spirit of cooperationbe-tween faculty and students. Dr.Christensen feels that this ob-jective can be attained onlythrough active participation onthe part of the students.

The assemblywill be held dur-ing the free hour, and all FineArts majors are expected to at-tend. The program is not opento the general student body.

Page 5: 11-6-1969 Spectator 1969-11-06

editorialTuesday night thirty students sat down and rapped

with the president of this University.For the first time the deep frustrations of the stu-

dents were aired directly to the man who could dosomething about them. And that man (the Very Rev.John A. Fitterer, S.J., President of S.U.) said he was"listening

— listening very carefully."

THE STUDENTS fired questions and Fr. Fitterer,looking tired and haggard, answered them "as candidlyas (he) knew how."

One of the striking features of that session was thatthe University president ASKED the students not onlyfor their opinions on problems but on their opinions forsolutions.

From this came the most important aspect of Tues-day night's meeting which was the sense that the stu-dents were at last being able to join with (although ina limited way) the administration to work out some ofthe grave problems facing S.U.

However,one thing was missing from the meeting—faculty representation.

LAST SPRING at the President's banquet, Fr. Fit-terermentioned plans of aUniversitySenate which wouldbe composedof students, facultyand administrators,andthis same senate was discussed during the session.

That night's experience showed how constructivethis type of organization could be.

During the session Fr. Fitterer said that originallyhe had felt his first duty was to get the Universitybackon its feet financially

—then to begin making changes.

Now he said, that problems on campus had multiplied sorapidly that this was no longer feasible. Restructuringand financial considerations must go hand-in-hand.

HOPEFULLY that was an indication that efforts toset up somethingpermanent like aUniversity Senate willnow be able to proceedahead and be functioning withinperhaps two years.

The establishment of such an organization wouldallow the spirit of Tuesday night's meeting to con-tinue on

— polite,calm, questioning and moving.

To the Editor:Concerning the recent Fresh-

man Class President's primary,the comment Iheard most fre-quently was "who are the peoplerunning and what will they dofor us?"

Realizing this and wishing tocorrect the matter Iwould liketo issue the other candidate achallenge to discuss any questionsthe members of the Freshmanclass may have. Iwould accom-modate him at any time and anyplace where a large segment ofthe classcould and wouldbe pres-ent to witness the discussion.I feel this is the only way the

members of the class of 1973 canjudge the qualifications of the twocandidates.

survival?To the Editor:

On November 14 and 15, Fridayand Saturday, the students of thiscampus will be offered the ques-tionable opportunity of sittingthrough approximately nine hoursof lecture in order to learn howto listen to lectures, study, read,etc. The lectures are called col-lectively "How to Survive in Col-lege." For a mere $10, the stu-dent will be given the answer toone of college's oldest questions:how not to flunk out. Hard work,

diligence, and a certain amountof guidance in courses havingfailed, we now approach thisproblem from a new angle:money.

Can it be that years upon yearsof successful Jesuit teaching hasfailed in some way? When didthis pressing need develop tobring in a corporation (Anacomp)whose inception cannot havebeenbefore 1956? It cannot be de-nied that a corporation is a com-mercial enterprise designed tomakeaprofit. Who is making theprofit from this one? Ihesitateto make any accusations; there-fore, I won't mention anythingabout a kickback. On the as-sumption that the program isbrought to this campus out oflove for the students, isn't itsomewhat self-defeating to haveall participants excused fromFriday classes?

Furthermore, if this really isa marvelousopportunity, why de-prive future generations of stu-dents? It seems that we couldwaste a reasonable number ofcredits by including it in theCore Curriculum.

At this point, I should admitthat I really don't know whatI'm talking about; having mud-dled through to my junior yearwithout benefit of the program,Ihave obviously not taken anddo not intend to take it. Ithere-fore have only the propagandadisseminated to students and fac-ulty throughout the campus asmy source of information. Ihavejust pointed out a number of ob-

Sounding Board:

Is War the Cure for Cancer?any surgeon would not perform surgery onan isolated part of his patient if he knewthat 80% of his body was already damaged.

3. But even forgetting the first two points, Iwouldfurther argue that any self respectingsurgeon who had started surgery on his pa-tient would stop it as soon as he realizedthat nothing could be gainedby proceedingfurther. (Ibelieve this is what many Ameri-cans favor).

America's intervention in Vietnam does notrenvnd me of cancer and surgerybut it does re-mind me of a storyIheard many years ago. Aman had trained a young gorilla and the gorillahad become very fond of his master. One day,as the man was asleep,a fly landed on his face.The young gorilla became very upset to see thesmall insect bother his friend, so he picked upa huge rock and dropped it on the fly. To hisdespair, not only dd he kill the fly ... but healso killed his friend.

Dr. Andre' L. YandlChairman. Department of Mathematics

by Dr. Andre L. YandlMathematics Department ChairmanIwould like to make a few comments

concerning some of Fr. Codd's remarksat the Mass of the HolySpirit. Althoughhe stated he was in favor of peace (whois not?), he made an interesting anal-ogy

—The situation in Vietnam is like

cancer and war is like surgery necessaryto cure it.Isuppose he was thinking of the world as a

person and America as the surgeon performingthe surgery. Interestingly enough, the analogycan be carried a few steps further.

1. Any surgeon would first obtain permissionfrom his patient before performing surgeryonhim. If the world is the patient,Ido notbelieve America has obtained such agree-ment.

2. If communism in Vietnam is the cancer Fr.Codd was referring to,Iwould argue that

Campus Action Lulls"LETHAPATHETIC"

Editor's note: Thoughtful considerationof several thousandcolumn inches of exchangepapers has led Tom to the conclusionthatnothingmuch is happening. Therefore, inthe best traditionsof Samuel Johnson,he has coined a new adjective to describe thesituation.

All too often the over-use of a word destroys bothits impact and definition. Terms such as: 'very','radical'and 'heavy',do more to confuse than clarify. Therefore,it has become necessary to combine two almost synony-mous, (and over-played) terms, in order to project cur-rent campus affairs

— 'lethapathetic'.It does not restrict itself to any one campus orarea of college

life, rather it transcends the boundariesof both time and geogra-phy. 'Lethapathetic' takes its first toll from amongst the ranksof the campus 'pseudo rebels'. That amorphous group of sheepthat follow the clamour of summer months, they return to theirnooks and crannies to undertake what they know best, hibernationfrom campus affairs.

But what of Vietnam, R.O.T.C, antiquated Administrationpolicies, and the draft? Are these to be abandoned in hopes thatthe status quo will cease to exist through its own will? Needless tosay, the closing of the windowon the draft won'tmakes it go away.Nor will support for just one of the moratoriums cause an abruptchange in the Vietnam 'facade. This is not a call to arms, butrather a challenge for commitment, not for this campus alone butrather for all colleges.

Nov. MoratoriumScheduled Nationally

by Tom W.SwintThe SeattlePoliceDepartment

has given several precautionarymeasures which students canfollow to both protect them-selves and prevent opportuni-ties for crime ingeneral.

Often, they said, victims ofauto theft, and other small timecrimes, simply ask to havetheircars stolen.

PRECAUTIONS specificallyrecommended for avoidingautotheft and prowlinginclude lock-ing the car at all times and notleaving any valuables in sight.Parking under lights is alsoadvised.

Police further recommendknowing where all the car keysare and not personalizing them.If they were lost, the personal-ized keys might be returned,howeverthe car might be stolenor rifled.

Precautions to avoid robberyare, first, not to flash moneyaround (not that college stu-dents are notorious for havingany to flash. Also it is not ad-visable to discuss any checksyou have recently received orcashed.

WALKING in groups of threeto four, not alone, is anotherprecaution. AH walking shouldbe done on routes that are welltraveled and lighted. Also stu-dents are advised to keep creditand I.D. cards separated frommoney— a robber is not goingto hand them back to you.

In case of being followed, oreven if you just suspect it, the

Police advise going to the near-est phone booth, calling themand then remainingat the booth.The emergency number ot theSeattle Police Department is583-2111.

Keeping your dorm roomlocked and knowing where allthe keys are, is the Police De-partment's advice to avoid bur-glaries. They also recommendnot allowing strangers or soli-citors into your room and keep-ing all valuables out of sight.IF SOMETHING is missing

from a room, they advisedchecking to see if the lock hasbeen tampered with.

The police offered severalgen-eral precautions against crime.These include keeping an in-ventory of all valuable articleswhich would include a descrip-tion, serial number, specialmarkings and a photograph ifpossible.

This would aid them in re-covering the item if it is pawn-ed.

THEY ALSO stressed that allcrimes should be reported im-mediately. This not only wouldhelp catch the law breaker butit helps themspot shifts incrim-inal activity.

They also pointed out thatmoral assults can be reportedtoo without fear of the individ-ual's name appearing in pub-lic records. The crime shouldbe reported and then, by de-clining to prosecute, the individ-ual's name will be kept out ofthe newspapersand court actioncan be avoided.

Plans are going ahead on thenational level for participationin the second Vietnam Morator-ium, Nov. 14 and 15. As of yet,no students have initiated anyaction to hold another protestat S.U.

Book Review

N.Y. TimesBest Seller

by Ernie BallardA lively and interesting ac-

count of the world's greatestnewsaper,The New York Times,has been compiled by Gay Ta-lase in "The Kingdom and thePower" (WorldPublishing). Ta-lase was a reporter for the"Times" for ten years.

"THE KINGDOM AND THEPOWER" traces the Times fromits purchase in 1896 by AdolphOchs for $75,000 to the internalchanges in the leadershipof theTimes in 1968. Talase providespersonal glimpses into many ofthe Times' most famous report-ers and executives.

The most interesting part ofthe book concerns the disagree-ments between James ("Scot-ty") Reston, columnist and for-mer Washington bureau headand E. Clifton Daniel, managingeditor of the Times. The NewYork and Washington officeshave had a long period of de-bate over each's authority. Dan-iel wanted a New York man toreplace Tom Wicker as head ofthe Washington bureau. Restonwent to Wicker's defense andwon; Wicker continued as thehead of the Washington bureau.Talase obviously favors Restonover Daniel personally and hisbias shows.

TALASE did a large amountof research for "The Kingdomand the Power."He interviewedpast and present Times person-nel and pulled no punches whenhe wrote about them. Like thepaper, the book has that feelingof "all the news that's fit toprint," and maybe some that afew people wish he hadn't. Thereader gets the impression thata Times reporter is a bit abovethe average newspaperman.Some perhaps are better thanmost reporters, but one neverloses the feeling that there issomething regal about The NewYork Times.

program. He suggested that anyinterested students contact theASSU office.

WHILE NOT opposed to theMoratorium, McDermott feltthat ASSU should not sponsor itdirectly. The Oct. 15 protesthere was student organized.

Present national plans includemarches on San Francisco andWashington, D.C., an! massdemonstrations in those citiesand Seattle.

Baylor Started 'Road ToFame' At S.U.It is a chain of restaurantswhichdeals in southern fried chicken.

"The chain now has 25 stores,primarily in the Los Angelesarea, but also in San Francisco.We are planning chain stores inPhoenix and in Canada, possiblyin British Columbia.

"I HAVE two stores myself,and there are two more underconstruction. They're all in LosAngeles."It was learned that he also

has real estate holdings inWashington, D.C, Virginia, Cal-ifornia, and Seattle. He alsosponsors a basketball camp inAuburn called "The Red BarnRanch."

Indeed, ElginBaylor is a suc-cessful man."Ihave been very fortunate,"

he said modestly, "and very

this man was great."HE WAS the type of player

who could make the big play atany given moment.

"He is, perhaps, the greatestclutch player in the history ofthe game. His mere appearanceon the floor madehis teammateswant to play beyond their po-tential."

BAYLOR'S courage and gutshave been evidenced manytimes, but never perhaps, sodramatically,as in '65-66.

During the '64-65 playoffs,Elgin almost came tragically tothe end of his career.

He had gone up for a reboundand when he came down partof his kneecap had been tornaway.Elg faced odds which were

1-99 that he would ever playagain.

—photo by ned buchman"AT THE urging of many people here in Seattle," thesuperstar said, "I spent a weekend here looking overSeattle U., and the Pacific Northwest."

by Art ReisSports Editor

"Seattle is my kindof town," said Elgin Baylor,starforward of the NBA Los Angeles Lakers, following pre-sentation of awards during "Elgin Baylor Night" at theSeattle Center Colesium Oct. 25.

Earlier that day,Baylor voiced a similar sentimentregarding his years at S.U., inan exclusive interview forThe Spectator."I CAME to Seattle Uni-

versity as a result of manyfactors," Elgin said, "butprimarily becauseIlike Se-attle and its people as wellor better than any one areain the country."

However, S.U. wasn't his firstchoice.

Baylor enrolled in the Collegeof Idaho following his gradua-tion from SpringarnHighSchoolin Washington, D.C. He attend-ed the college, located in Cald-well, Idaho, for one year; and

soon found that he wanted toattend a larger school."Iwas actuallyenrolled in the

University of Connecticut whenIcame to look at Seattle U.,"Baylorsaid.

"AT THE URGING of manyfriends here in Seattle," he con-tinued, "I spent a weekendhere looking over Seattle U.,and the Pacific Northwest."I wanted to go to school in

a big city," Elgin said, "andIfelt Icould get a better edu-cation in a university."

As Elginentered his first yearof eligibility for S.U., the schoolnamed John Castellani as var-sity basketball mentor.

THE CHIEFS had a newcoach, and after a couple ofgames,a new star.

"The Rabbit," as he was la-beled at S.U., promptly stolethe show in his first year ofinter-collegiate competition.

ELGIN scored 826 points,grabbed 553 rebounds, and waschosen to Look Magazine's All-American team.

Then therewas 1957-58, a yearwhen "At his worst, he's won-derful" Baylor did it all overagain.

EXPERTS calledBaylor "thegreatest player alive, too goodfor collegiateball." Three timesduring that year,Baylor led thenation in scoring and rebound-ing.

At this time, the NCAA placeda two year banon S.U. for whatwas termed "illegal recruitingpractices". The school could notcompete in any mid-season orpost season tournaments until,as the ban stated, "September1, 1960."

Thequestion arose immediate-ly: "Would Elgin finish schoolor turnpro?"

"The decision to turn pro wasan extremelydifficult one," El-gin said seriously, "andIwasinfluenced by many factors.

"First, there was the moneyand the securities in playingprofessional ball."I felt that Iwas getting as

much money to turn pro thenas Iever would have, and theopportunity to play ball for theLakers was greater at thistime."

ELGIN WAS NAMED to theofficial All-NBA selections firstteam, joining such notables asBob Cousy, Bob Pettit, BillSharman and Bill Russell.

However, basketball isn't theonly life for Elgin Baylor. Hisreallife ishis family.

Elgin and his wife, Ruby,weremarried in1958. Theyhavetwo children; a boy, Alan, whois nine, and a daughter, Alison,whois five.Iasked the former Chieftain

Ail-American about retirementas related to his family. Baylorwas very honest, perhaps con-fidinga bit.

"IPLAN to retire from pro-fessional basketball when mypresent contract runs out. Iamsigned to play this year andnext year with the Lakers, but1don't know for sure after that."I am getting tired," Elgin

said softly, "and my family isgrowing up.

"Because the children are get-ting older, Iwant to be withthem. Iwant to have the timeto spend with them as a fathershould.

"My years and earnings inprofessional basketball havegiven me a solid ground workfor retirement. I also havemany business interests whichIam involved in andIfeel Ishould devote some time tothese things."

IASKED HIM if he wouldelaborate furtheron his businessinterests.

Baylor, an extremely modestand easy person to talk with,did so enthusiastically.

"My primary interest i* witha company in Southern Califor-nia called 'Pioneer Take Outs.'

"THE PERFECT FORWARD" battles TomMeschery.

But Elgin Baylor, with cour-age and guts, beat those odds.

Following the operation,Bay-lor did exercises every day tostrengthen the knee, but recov-ery took longer than the ex-pected "five months."

The next season, bothered bya lack of mobility as a resultof the knee injury, Baylor wasaveragingonly 16.6 per game—about 9 or 10 points below whatwas normal for Baylor— a solidaverage for the normal playerin the NBA.

SUDDENLY, one nightBaylorthrew the caution with which hehad been playing to the wind.Unhappy with his performances,"Shack" played like the pro thathe is.

The result was a 45 minutesscoring spree during which henetted 28 points. One monthlater, Elg ran 46 points into therecord books against the Knicks.

Baylor was back.In 1966, he re-injured the knee

against the New York club, anda cast was needed to correct thedamage.

This setback was also over-come in Baylor style, as theLakers, behind their superstar,entered the NBA playoffs onceagain. That season, Elgin Bay-lor averaged26 points per game.

PERHAPS John Castellani,his old coach and now a lawyerin Milwaukie, said it best:

"He's the kind of player thatyou see onlyonce in a lifetime.Elgin was a composite: a com-pletebasketball playerand com-pletely a man."Iwould have to agree with

you, John.

lucky."But a lot of it has been Elgin

Baylorstyle,Elgin Baylor cour-age and ElginBaylor guts.

Elgin is a team man, but Bay-lor's biggest fans are the LosAngelesLakers.

One night in 1960, Baylor em-phasizedhis style.

HE HAD SCORED 15, 19 and13 points in the first three quar-ters against the New YorkKnicks for a total of 47 points.This particularnight, the Lakeribegan to feed Baylor.For a mo-ment, he lost his shooting con-trol. The forced feeding con-flicted withhis style; Baylorhasalways been a team man.

He was being forced to shootby his teammates, and wasmissing the shots.

But just as quickly as he hadgone cold, Baylor turned "redhot." He counted 24 points inallthat quarter.

Baylor's 71points was,in 1960,an NBA record. Ironically, Bay-lor's current teammate, WiltChamberlain, broke Elgin's rec-ord almost two years later with100 points against the Knicks inMarch, 1962.

Baylor has been called bymany "The Perfect Forward."

John Castellani, Baylor'shead coach at S.U., had com-ments of his own.

"Elgin has the grace of agymnast and the accuracy of anaddingmachine.

"Once you see him in action,you are converted to Baylor-ism."

Over the phone yesterday,Castellani remarked: "The low-est novice at anything wouldeasily get the conclusion that
