King for just a day, it is true, but what a mighty monarch he is! The Royal Express, New Orleans bound, puffs pompously into the station and King Rex, bedecked in regal robes and glittering jewels, surrounded by all his mighty and noble knights, glamorous and beautiful maidens and mimicking jesters, alights from the steps of his private car and receives from five hundred thousand willing hands the golden key to the city which is his for a week of merriment and gaiety. The shadows of gloom and despair lurk behind the imposing columns and stare in dismay at the spectacle before them, then with faces buried deep in their cloaks hurry from the scene and flee into oblivion, for no more National Convention To Open At Loyola-Tulane This Sunday Many Important Collegiate Problems To Be Discussed ENTERTAINMENT PROGRAM FEATURED Nationally Famous Personages Will Address College Delegates The National College Press Association will open its annual convention at Loyola and at Tulane Sunday morning at ten o'clock.

The attorneys for the appellant were John Dullenty and Bernard Tortermasi, opposed by Carl Buchman and Sam Morgan, counsel for the appellee. The six judges presiding rendered an almost unanimous decision in favor of the appellants who upheld the fact that "an olographic will merely bearing the signature mother, is insufficient in order to validate the will." The final decision was five to one. CAST FOR FIRST THESPIAN PLAY OF YEAR DECIDED A. P. Schiro and Theo.

SHAUGHNESSY'S PREDECESSOR MOVES TO PACIFIC COAST (By College New» Service) Chicago, Feb. 23.*—If anybody had th« id« that Amos Alonzo Stagg was through with coaching simply because he is 71, that idea had to be considerably revised this week, when the "gra'hd old man" was discovered doing a "Horace Greeley" toward the west. Forced into retirement by the University of Chicago, Stagg will leave for California in April to start virtually a new career at the College of the Pacific. "I'm going west much after the advice of Horace Greeley—and I am a young man," he said. "I'm too young and too active to give up coaching. I look forward to my new position with great eagerness."President Tully Knoles of the College of the Pacific induced the dean of American coaches to accept the western position, and Stagg expects to be on hand early in April to take charge of spring football practice.

At the meeting, Dr. Schuyten, the director general of the production, announced that the opera, "Martha," will be presented instead of the operetta, "The Desert Song," as previously announced.

He also announced that after the next practice, which is to be held in the music school building next Thursday, March 2, no applicants for cast membership will be accepted.
