FMA Appears Essential
But on Shaky Ground (
A brilliant young man presented Wednesday night
what may prove to be the eventual salvation of frater- I
nal organizations on this campus. f
We are speaking of John Nolan's Fraternity Manage-
ment Association (FMA) financial plan of purchasing
explained before the weekly meeting of the Interfrater-
niry Council. I
For Your Enjoyment
1 1 fs
Under Nolan's plan, compiled after days and weeks
of extensive study, the nearly 40 fraternal campus hous- I
ing units could save up to $1,000 a year via cooperative
We feel such a plan was inevitable with the gradual
Increase in operating expenses among campus living
organizations excluding dormitories operated by the Uni
versity, which in turn meant a higher housebill to the
.. Individual students.
The average housebill for fraternal organizations to
day runs near $90 plus. Yet this fact is not the disturbing
information. If cost of living continues to go up as it has
in the past, there is no doubt in our minds that fraternal
living units would be forced to raise the monthly cost
again and again until fraternities, sororities and coopera
tives would be forced out of existance. Not only does the
FMA promise to halt this increasing cost of purchasing
but practically insures a savings to each housing unit
after the first year. This would push housebills below the
present average of $90.
This is a plan V A is not new to our campus. The 1
University does an immense amount of purchasing this
way each year. Included in such buying is the foods and I
staples for the University residence halls. It is easy to
see we enecuveness oi sucn ouying wnen one compares
the average dormitory housebill to the fraternity unit
However, the objective of "securing the benefits of
cooperative action" causes us to ponder. Our generation
shouldn't think ourselves old-timers in this age of empha
sized progressbut the losses of the corner grocery and
baker and butchers to the two block supermarket bring
at least some note of reminiscence.
Is it goodbye to Tony the fruit man? Must the neces-'
sity of efficiency always dampen the essence of enter
prise? Realizing that the consumers are merging here, and
not the merchants, we must allow that an element such
as the FMA is a boon to better business and manage
ment, but we feel that at least one tear must be shed in
the pell mell of progress, and at least one note of ponder
must be sounded on the "benefits of cooperative action."

of an Open Road production
starring Gregory Peck, Da

Excitement of many types
is on view in this enthusi
astic "filmzation" of Alas
tair MacLean's popular nov
el. As a small bunch of sa
boteurs attempt to destroy
guns at Navarone (located
on the island of Kheros, near
Turkey), each new situation
and climax demands audi
The cliff-scaling sequence,
a scene when the saboteurs
are rounded up by the ene
my, a wonderfully directed
and lensed storm segment
(actually shot inside a stu
dio) and the final climax are
just a few of the highlights.
There is little relief from
the continual excitement
The film has lined np an
excellent cast. However, the
thesps have to take second
place to the situations. Greg

Anthony Quayle and James

Two women have been
written into the senario that
were not in the novel. Italy's
Gia Scala and Greece's
Irene Papas act well, but
their parts seem superflu
ous to the story line.
Many of the incidents
seem implausible, but the
audience should remember
that the incidents depected
are supposedly based on
World War II historic fact.
From the start of the credits
to the "The End" in the
final frame, this is an am
bitious, expensive, satisfy
ing piece of entertainment.
Sidelight: "The Guns of
Xavarone" premiered in
New York City in late June.
On my way to my summer
job at the Lakes Region
Playhouse in Laconia, New
Hampshire, I was in New
York City at that time. I
was naturally attracted by
the premiere and proceeded
to watch the ceremonies. A
cameraman was filming the
premiere for, what I thought
was either television adver
tising or newsreel presenta
tion. A couple weeks ago. along
with a plodding m e 1 1 e r
called '"Homicidal," pre
views of "The Guns of Nava
rone" were shown. The pre
views consisted of footage
from the premiere. And
there I was, much to my
surprise, on the screen ! Ev
en though not paid, is this
a professional screen debut?
