Muslim Views To Be Given slim viewpoint opes and goals of ( on gross since graduated from lth a Bachelor of colleges are the they have alwav: ate a few new trends in financing a university such as SC'. Dr. Mabel Newcomer. Vassar emeritus professor of economics, told Faculty Club members yesterday. 'One hundred years ago colleges quietly folded up when their funds ran out. Yale e'en moved its location for the sake of a couple thousand dollars." she said. Noting the sources of college funds, the professor claims that students are the first tesonrce of a college. Tuition RaUe "You can raise the tuition but ihen you can only hope the students keep on coming." shr explained. "And you may have to substitute quantity for quality of students if this is done." she added. Dr. Newcomer sited faculty contributions as a second great financial source. "The salaries faculty members don't get are g'eater by far than all the private gifts of money a university receives." she said. Third Source Private gifts or endowments are the third source of a college's income. "While endowments are today five times as great as before, they only make up 10 per cent of a college’s income, compared with 25 per cent not too many years ago," she noted . ‘ It’s the job of Ihe trustees of a college 1o maintain the value of their endownments and above all to do something useful with the money.” Dr. Newcomer said. "Now more than ever donor« want to see results right away.

Kuchel told the law students that he was trying to shake the "nickname" he had. "I am against all ’label-names.” he said. He cited one of his major objectives as tlying to get rid of the Big Bustness name for the Republicans and the Big Labor name for the Democrats. Sen. Kuchel has served on tilt* Senate Appropriations Committee, which handles all measures providing funds for the operation of government. Class Slates Night Meet The Senior ( lass Organization will hold an important meeting tonight at 6:30 at the Kappa Alpha Theta house to complete semester plans, said D a y 1 e Barnes, class president.

"Today there is a slow movement toward investing in stocks, but most trustees ate ’’scared to death’’ of such an investment." she explained. "They're afraid of losing money and therfore build up a sort of reserve fund—thus depriving students of some money which should go directly to their education,” Dr. New'comer pointed out. Many gifts that come in are "ear-marked” for projects of what the economist calls “questionable value.” Citing an example of this. Dr. Newcomer told of an endowment set aside to construct a completely “non-academic looking” school building. Final Selection Announced for Joyce s Play Final selection of the cast for , "Finnegan’s Wake.’ Mary Man- | ning’s adaptation of the James ; Joyce novel, was announced to- | day by Norman Lofland, director of the production. Tickets are now on sale for $1 for the Stop Gap Theater presentation. The performance «ill be given on Dec. 1-fi. The cast will include .loe As-cuitto. Robevt Biheller, Tom Costello. Richard Lang. Jim Mellon. Richard Miailovich and Roy Sorrels. Other cast memliers will be Lowell Thomas. Jim Wexted. El-lem Elliott, Kitty Ferran. Shari InJoes. Ruth Johnson. Lucille Liberatore, Pogo Perotti. Nina Shaw and Joan Tewkesbury. Lofland said that a chorus of actors would be used in mucn the same manner as an orches-| tra. “Joyce has attempted to take the words and phrases of words blended into one word to create the same atmospheric mood that ■ is found in a composer's work." Lofland. explained. “It could be said that Joyce used words in the same wav a composer uses musical notes, he added. Lofland said he would use this effect in the SC drama production. Since seating at the Stop (Jap Theater is limited to 129. Lofland advised that early reservations be. made. CLASS PRESIDENT URGES JAZZ PARTY ATTENDANCE f Junior Class President Bill Steigerwalt said that this Saturday’s Hollywood .lazz Celler party will be the last class activity of the year unless juniors begin to show some enthusiasm and start attending the functions. “We’ve planned this event very carefully and only 10 tickets have been sold," a dejected Steigerwalt said. Tickets are on sale today and tomorrow in front of the Studenl Union and cost SI.50 per couple. Junior Class cardholders may buy a ticket for only 75 cents. The Hollywood Jazz teller will welcome .junior party goers from 8 p.m. to midnight. Buddy Farnham and Jennie Butler and his band will entertain at the affair. An extensive buffet featuring ham, turkey, chips and dips will also he available. Door favors will be given. Steigerwalt said that the class officers had worked hard on this event and had spent practically all of their reserve money fund on it. "We feel that after three very well-organized events went astray because of lack of junior support, we would finish up this month with a big party,” he said. "it’s been planned perfectly and everything will be ready,” he added. “All we are waiting for now is student support,” Steigerwalt concluded. Much cause for officer resentment, Steigerwalt said, is that the first SC-California Junior Class transfer party in Berkeley—planned for two months and organized to include every possible entertainment— only drew' 30 students from both schools. Steigerwalt said that everybody responsible for the activity became quite dejected after this turn of events. Greek Drama Relates Status of Divine Law Legislators Suggest European Campus Sophocles believed that divine law should become the center of human law, said Dr. Paul Miller, assistant professor of philosophy, in a discussion of the Greek dramatist's tragedy “Antigone" at Tuesday’s Philosophy Forum. Three scenes from the play were presented to illustrate the philosopher's interpretation. values." Dr. Miller said. He pointed out that the conflicts within the play are aspects of the struggle between man's law and divine law. Haunting Soul The Greeks believed that if a body were not tespect fully buried, the soul would come back to haunt ihe living. "Burial of the dead was a solemn religious duty and was necessary to give the soul whatever rest it might find in the realm of the dead." Dr. Miller explained. "It was a religious obligation, commanded hv the gods, with Relation of Science, People Will Be Discussed Today Biochemist Paul Salinian jud philosopher William Snyder will discuss the relation between people and modern scientific technology today at 3:15 p.m. at the YWCA as a preview of activities scheduled for this year's V\ silomar conference.

The administartion’s edict squelching Trojan song-I leaders produced considerable I discussion on the Senate floor j at the beginning of the meeting. Engineering President Alan Widiss proclaimed that student government “got a real kick in 1 the stomach" by being overruled j hv the administration on an is-j sue which had been passed twice i by two successive Senates and once by the student body as a w hole. Big Damage ‘Nothing has damaged student government more than this issue has in the past three years.” Widiss declared. Dr. Robert J. Downey, dean of students, bolstered the senators' deflated spirits by promising that in the future, he will let the student leaders know ihe administrative policy so they “won’t be embarrassed again.” Dr. Downey buried the would-he songleaders once and for all in answering Greater University Chairman Vince Stefano’s query as to any further recourse. "This will give students an op- Nothing to Do "No. to be frank, there isn't anything more the Senate can do," the dean of students and Senate adviser answered.
