Atatimeinthe world when the voice of democracy is as important as food and air it will be interesting to see whether certain sectional leaders of the nation join in hands or continue to fight to the losing battle of who won the Civil War. For historians the Civil War was finished almost 100 years ago. But for cu...

War: what is it good for? Learning about history, of course. Students at Loyola in the late 1930s and early 1940s had a great deal to say about the politics of their time, most notably about World War II, and they took to The Maroon to say it. An article called "The Sane Course," written on Sept. 23,...

In an era of supposed equality, where men and women of all races are widely accepted, it is difficult for some to remember how different the world was 50 years ago, when minorities were fighting just to gain acceptance into a university. These struggles, though, were well documented throughout the ye...

April Fools' Day- it's that good old day today, so don't believe anything you read. This is particular true of the things you may read in this Maroon.
