Magazine Sales To Begin Today The fourth issue of “Profiles," , SC student literature magazine, ! hits the stands today. A number of “firsts” in both the writing and illustration departments are contained in the 40-page magazine, editor Dick Barsam revealed. The 50-cent magazine, published twice yearly by the English Club in cooperation with the department of English, will be on sale at the University Newsstand in the Student Union and the University Bookstore. Local Stores Two local book stores, Tam’s and College Book Store, will al- ! so handle the student literary publication. The first publication of an original poem by Italian writer Ernesto Marzano takes up pages I 24 and 25 of “Profiles.” The poem, “Ad Una Principes-sa Che Ho Perduto,” appears ; Ikuh in its original Italian form and in a special translation by the author. The English translation of the poem was handled by Marzano and Jacqueline Udell. Lyrics Translated Two other lyrics appear in j both translated and original forms. ' Both are Flamenco lyrics, translated by Frederick Gibson from a group of “classic” Flamenco Cante Jondo songs of Spain, said Barsam. The two lyrics, “La Serrano" Larue Views Sea Scrolls “The Dead Sea Scrolls, Their Meaning and Significance” will he discussed by Dr. Gerald Larue, associate professor of religion, at a noon graduate stu- and “Solea Apola,” sit side by side in both English and Spanish versions. Two-color Cover A two-color cover design, done in black and yellow and muted shades of the two colors, make up another “first” for “Profiles,” said Barsam. The cover was designed by art editor Don Proul. Also included in the spring “Profiles” volume are groups of fiction and poetry by SC students. Three Short Stories Three short stories, “The Betrayal” by Barbara Bennison; “Little Dove, Your Wings” by William Dauphine: and “And the Columns Fell” by Dick Barsam, comprise the fictional content of the issue. Included in the poetry section are “I’d Lend You my Donkey” and "Snow Sketches” by Nina Shawr; “The Fishermen” by Val Herbv; “Poem” by Joyce Petyon and “Poem” by Susan Weld. Limited Edition The new’ issue was printed in a limited number, reported Barsam. He said that students buying the new literary volume are “obtaining a bargain” at the less-than-printing cost price it is selling for. Acting as faculty advisers to the semi-annual student publication are James H. Durbin Jr., Dr. Aerol Arnold and Dr. William Templeman, head of the English department. 3 Sociologists STUDENT GOP nominates Attack Student nixon on second vote Pseudo-Ideals Today’s college student, frequently attacked for his supposed apathy, got another sting to-j day from Cornell University. Four Cornell sociologists in a three-year research study on “What College Students Think,” found that the typical college I student professes a number of | lofty ideals, but doesn't live by ! them. Their picture of today’s college students looks, something : like this: Believes In Love He is idealistic, but often cheats on exams. He believes in romantic love, yet attaches scant importance to chastity. He is religious, but in a hazy, uncommitted way. In his business career, he hopes to get ahead through hard work but not at the exoonse of family life. He is a vaguely detached individual hanging without much pn?sion to the middle of the political ro^ri. Eleven Schools Eleven universities — Cornell, Dartmouth, Fisk, Harvard. Michigan, North Carolina, Texas UCLA, -Wayne, \Ve=levan and Yale—w'erp studied and quizzed during the study. Their findings seem 1o represent the opinions of many, including personnel at this university, that the student today really has no convictions and merely mouths values without firmly believing in them. Propagates Cheating Another disturbing finding is that the fraternity system tends to propagate cheating. Regular Republican Parly members tried to prevent SC’s New York student delegation from nominating Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller for the presidency at a mock Republican convention at Occidental College Friday. The party members, some of them from the SC Law School, wanted Vice President Richard Nixon to grab the nomination on the first ballot, reported delegation members. But obstructionist tactics on the part of the SC New York delegation siphoned off enough votes to keep Nixon from getting the nomination until the second ballot. Original plans of the SC delegation, which, also represented Alabama, called for Alabama, first state on the roll call to yield to SC’s New York group. Interference and maneuverings by the regular Republicans, not officially invited to attend the most convention, caused the Alabama delegation to defect to California. And Nixon was promptly nominated. Gov. Rockefeller, the favorite son of the New York group, was finally placcd in nomination by delegate Wallv Karabian. Haggling, talking, and debating by Karabian, chairman Harold Fong and other New York delegates, brought enough states, mostly from the Northeast, into the SC camp and left Nixon 23 votes short of a first-ballot nomination. Henry Cabot Lodge, U.S. delegate to the United Nations, grabhed the Vice Presidential nomination, when SC threw its 96 New York votes over to him in a surprise move. Details of the mock Democratic convention held at L.A. State College Saturday will be released tomorrow. Flewellings Memorial To Attract Hundreds Unfair to Try Without Facts' By JOE SALTZMAN Daily Trojan City Editor Members of the Trojan Knights issued a statement last Friday accusing the AMS investigating committee chairman, Mike Loshin, of trying their organization with headlines rather than facts. Answering charges leveled at their service organization made bv Loshin last Thurs- , --- day, Dave Berg, Knight, president, and Bart Porter, selection board member, declared that it was unfair to their organization to be proven guilty by headlines rather than proven innocent by facts. Loshin, who was given full power by the ASSC Senate to investigate the Knights, said , that he released his findings to 1 the Daily Trojan because the; Senate felt that the student j body should know all of the | facts and that “those who have j nothing to hide should have i nothing to fear.” N'o Questions Berg and Porter, representing j the Knights involved in the | | procedure of selecting new mem-1 SC Chancellor Rufus B. von KleinSmid will be one of many persons paying tribute to the The Cornell sociologists report late Ralph Tv ler P lewelling, di-that there is a “depreciation of academic values’’ in fraternities. Other students who are “unsuccessful, uninterested and critical” are also likely to cheat, they found. Why does the college student think the way studies such as this seem to indicate? The Cornell sociologists did not analyze any o the varied and compliacted pressures leading American college students into the molds they seem to be in. but they did offer some general conclusion. Prize Poetry Will Be Read Stanley Kunitz, awarded the Pulitzer Prize last year for his ‘Selected Poems, 1928-1958,” will read selections of his poetry to SC students tomorrow night. One of America's outstanding lyric poets, Kunitz appears under the auspices of the Bing Fund at 8 p.m. in 133 FH. Dr. Aerol Arnold, SC professor of English, said that Kunitz's poetry has “elegance, penetrating beauty and intellectual, sublime strength.” He said that his reading displays a speaking imagination and a personality which reveals the emotional intensity of his waiting. Kunitz has received critical acclaim throughout the world writing poetry which concerns itself with not only the written word, but an oral interpretation. Graduated summa cum laude from Harvard, he has taught at a number of colleges and universities. rector emeritus of the SC School of Philosophy, at today’s memorial services for the renowned philosopher.

The twro Knights also questioned the authority of the AMS committee by saying that no where in the AMS constitution does it state that this group may investigate anything. Produces Article Loshin immediately produced Art.
