This must be ac complished by an authorized representation when a large number is to be ruled. At Mundelein, we are at liberty to use the school's facilities . . . with the responsibility of caring for them properly. The SAC, as the elected student governing body, has the authority to make rules governing the use of such property, or to delegate power to a sub-committee to do so.

Loretta Bernhom, Tina De Rosa from the students, through the SAC, that the House Committee receives the power to create regulations to insure the order and appearance of the school. The sub-committee's duty is the house keeping of the college. This group esti mates the need for the regulation of Lewis Center, the Formal Lounge of Coffey Hall, the Phoenix Room, the Tea Room, Social Room and any other area where rules seem necessary. The committee presents all regulations to the SAC and the Dean of Students for approval and also submits rec ommendations for the revision of those proved ineffective. Now, since the students of Mundelein have taken it upon themselves to rule themselves by a representative government, it is time the students got behind that government. Contrary to opinion, rules were not made to be broken. The house committee has, for instance, ruled that there will be no dancing in Lewis Center. Those who are opposed to this law should not take it upon themselves to mimic anarchial chaos by dis organizing the entire lounge. Anyone who feels there is no need for a regulation can appeal to her representative on the com mittee. As college students we are more than adult enough to realize that we should be held accountable for our own actions. And with this self-rule comes the responsibility of maintaining its dignity, not only for the government that guards it but for the privi lege of that freedom itself. Pat Krochmal President Cites History Crisis Parallels World War II Saturday 1,000 people marched in the Loop protesting the United States' quarantine of Cuba. We can be fairly sure that these people do not realize the gravity of their better Red than dead slogans. They want peace at any price but seem to overlook the historical fact that peace cannot be bought at the price of individual freedom. President Kennedy showed his familiarity with this historical fact by comparing Hitler's tactics before World War II with Khrushchev's current tactics. While negotiating with the free world, Hitler built up arms; he invaded weaker countries; he precipitated war; and he pushed the peace at any price attitude to the breaking point. While negotiating with the free world, Khrushchev talks about disarma ment yet builds up nuclear missiles and submarines; he talks about peace yet precipitates war by invading smaller countries; but he still has not dis couraged the peace at any price marchers. Everyone wants peace. Everyone wanted peace before World War II. Everyone feared war then and since then with the growth of tension, with the growth of Communist power, with the growth of nuclear arms that fear has increased. But an increase in the awareness of our position has ac companied this increase in fear. The U.S. is no lonser on the sidelines; we are one of the major protagonists in a fight against a more subtle, more insid ious opponent than Hitler. We are not fighting troops; we are fighting pro paganda. Because of this subtle propaganda and because of her wish for peace, the free world has failed to stand effectively against the Communist move ment just as she failed to stand against the Nazi movement. Now Commu nism has a foothold in every part of the world including the Western Hemi sphere. Now the Americans in particular are beginning to realize the dan ger of repeating the same folly committed with Hitler. Now the United States has taken a stand. President Kennedy has a responsibility to the U.S. and to the free world to win a life of dignity and justice while retaining its freedom. He owes this much to the country all the country just as the country all the coun try now owes him its total support. Mary O'Malley Skyscraper Presents Editorial Policy, Advocates Intelligent Campus Comment Trio orlitrjviol nlin*r r f + gt; QtmofYiivutf Vine ot mmvv craff -ftialc it nnn nirl in ni rfpptino* The editorial policy of the Skyscraper has been vague in the past. At present, the edi tors are trying to formulate a more definite one. Since controversy has risen over the Smoker Vote editorial in the first issue, the editors take this opportunity to relate the policy as formulated thus far. An editorial on this page is the voice of the Skyscraper. It is not only the opinion of the writer, but neither is it the voice of 1,200 students. Through editorials the staff have a duty to serve as intelligent members of the cam pus community, expressing a sane point of view on campus activities. Editorials are determined according to the importance the subject matter merits on campus. Student affairs are stressed, but not to the negation of local, national and in ternational issues. Most editorials of campus concern have presented the positive side in the past years. The community is not perfect, but it is bet ter to appreciate its fine points than to en large on its flaws. However, when the Sky scraper staff feels it can aid in perfecting the college community by intelligent com ment and suggestion opposed to the present condition, a negative stand will appear. When the stand is negative, the reader has an obligation to interpret the editorial according to the facts and comment in the article. The Smoker Vote editorial in the first issue has been misinterpreted on campus. Some would call this article a con demnation of the house committee. Nothing in the editorial warrants this fallacious in terpretation. Such superficial readers would probably consider a negative com ment on a person's hat as a condemnation of the person. The editorial favoring the house commit tee (which appears to the left) is not a change in the Skyscraper's opinion. The staff never printed anything to the con trary. Woe to Mundelein when the Sky scraper gives an inch and its readers take a mile. Mary Jo Murray Brilliant La Boheme Opens Lyric Season by Marianne Wagner The opening performance of The Lyric Opera's La Boheme proved to be excit ingly beautiful. The audience that entered the opera house, disappointed because of Renata Tebaldi's absence, left exhilarated after a thrilling performance of Puccini. La Boheme tells the story of two pairs of lovers, their meetings and their separa tions. Rudolfo, the poet (Richard Tucker) falls in love with his neighbor, Mimi (Con- suelo Rubio). Rudolfo's artist friend, Mar- cello (Mario Zanosi) loves the flighty bar maid, Musetta (Joan Marie Moynagh). Eventually, both loves become frustrated because of Mimi's poor health and Musetta's flirting. The lovers part, but are brought together again in the final act when Musetta brings Mimi, who is at the point of death, back to Rudolfo. The couples renew their vows of love. As Musetta prays, Mimi quietly dies, while Rudolfo calls her name in despair. Consuelo Rubio's Mimi was a lovely one. She began somewhat coldly but later gained the warmth necessary for the role. Her voice was rich and full, although a bit broad and uncontrolled in the upper register. In tensity and pathos culminated the brilliant performance in Mimi's farewell. Miss Moynagh's debut was not as success ful as it could have been. Her Musetta was highly vivacious and charming, but her voice lacked the lustre of the fiery woman. Mu setta's Waltz Song did not reach the pitch of excitement expected because the soprano's voice was thin and brittle in areas. The men rendered superb performances. As usual, Richard Tucker's highly stylized tenor enfolded the audience in its tender ness. For a change, he appeared as a hero of stature because his leading lady was shorter than he. Mario Zanasi proved a dashing Marcello. His deep baritone blended agreea bly with the voices of Rubio and Tucker. William Wilderman further delighted the audience as the whimsical philosopher. Under the able direction of Carlo Felice Cillario, Puccini's music came to life and allowed the singers to perform to their utmost. The Lyric outdid themselves with the selection of the sets and the bright cos tumes which provided the necessary element for a lovely picture. The chorus milled and thronged as well as a chorus can mill and throng, and sang with a style to complement the leads. If the Lyric Opera continues to present operas the caliber of La Boheme their season will be brilliantly successful.
