LOYOLA DEBATERS TROUNCE THE OWL Night Students Lose on War Debt Question By a unanimous decision, the Loyola Debate Society won over the Loyola Night School Debating Club in a forensic discussion of the cancellation of the European War Debts in Marquette Hall at Loyola University Monday night. The day students, represented by C. Paul Barker, and Stephen Rodi, J argued that the United States j should not cancel their inter-allied war debts, while the night students, represented by Preston Delcazel and David Herman, advanced the argument that the United States should cancel the debts because "this money was America's contribution to the common cause and she has no right demanding payment." Paul Barker, the first speaker for the winning negative, said "America is not only justified in collecting war debts, but the European nations are able to pay and it would involve a heavy tax 1 burden on American citizens if we I were to cancel the debts." The judges for the debate were the Rev. Karl Maring, S. J., head of Loyola's physics department, J Dr. John V. Connor and Professor i J. R. Hart. Father Maring, in awarding the decision to the negative speakers, said they had presented more solid arguments. A large crowd attended. Al. J. Leach acted as chairman.

C., March 10.— Temporary release of Jisaku Fukusato, Japanese graduate student at the University of North Carolina, who was jailed by immigration authorities in Raleigh this week, had been obtained by President Frank Porter Graham of the university.

He has a two-year scholarship at the university, however. He was taken to Dr. Graham's home pending the outcome of the proceedings against him. Finance Dean Praises Roosevelt Action, Declares Present Crisis 'The Worst in American History' By John F. Nugent "No matter what we are told to the contrary, the United States of America is facing the worst economic crisis in its history." This was the flat statement issued Wednesday evening by John V. Connor, Dean of the School of Commerce and Finance at Loyola University. "President Roosevelt's immediate control of the country's gold , is undoubtedly the best thing he could have done,"' Dean Connor declared. "Most important of any relief measures is the insurance of monetary stabilization, and the presi- j dent's gold-conservation plan stands for the preservation of the ( country's monetary unit—gold." Asked his opinion on the | "scrip" plan of commercial ex-1 change, the Commerce Head de-! clared that the- ise of Federal j Reserve notes would obviate the j necessity of using the scrip notes. | "Though not officially author- I ized by the Treasury Department," Mr. Connor said, "local communities may, through their clearing | bouses, issue any substitute they see fit." "The use of Federal Reserve | Notes, in accordance with passing of the Glass-Steagle bill, j is more acceptable to the treasury ; | than scrip in that it represents | ;40 per cent of the nation's gold and 60 per cent of the nation's | bonds ad common currency," Pro- J fessor Connor explained. The scrip plan wag explained by "Doc" Connor as a system of j money substitution whereby credit j is transferred in to paper notes— j "Scrip," with which regular business may be transacted. II Whilst admitting th* serious-1 i ness of the current banking trou| ble, Mr. Connor expressed confi-! | dence that the enthusiasm of the i ■ j incoming administration will be , the means of overcoming the j - j weighty problems confronting i [ them.

The Loyola team, composed of Bertin Barosse, Nicholas Tardo and Harry Herman, argued the affirmative, while the Dominican team, made up of Mary Cunningham, Anna May Dillon and Teresa Napolitano, upheld the negative side of the question. The judges were Mrs. Louis Pate, Mrs. R. G. Bledsoe, Mr. and Mrs. E. Massa and Dr. D. S. Ballina. NEW TEACHER The Rev. J. J. Wallace, S.

BUTLER OUTLINES DEPRESSION CURES (By College News Service) New York, Mar. 10.—Although unable to appear in person before the Senate finance committee, President Nicholas Murray Butler of Columbia University this week filed a letter with the committee, outlining his recommendations for a way out of the depression. The recommendations, summarized, were: A businesslike reorganization of governmental agencies. Repeal of "unsound" veterans' legislation, which would save approximately $450,000,00 per year. International understanding and cooperation, first, by an agreement between the United States and its debtor nations; second, gradual reduction of tariff walls and quota restrictions, and third, United States membership in the World Court, the latter to be the means of' counteracting "reactionary nationalism," which, he contended, is typified by "Buy American" campaigns and which "is gravely threatening the whole of our present-day civilization." NEW RUHRAL PROF HERE TO TEACH LATIN TO SOPHS Father Maring Comes to Loyola From Germany and Texas IS BROTHER OF PHYSICS HEAD Declares American Youth Not Gypped by Latin "If any of our American youth, | in the pursuit of a liberal educa- I tion, think they're being 'gypped' into taking too much Latin, let them give a thought to the course the sturdy sons of Germany must follow before they can receive | their academic degree." This, in so many words, is the advice of the Rev. Joseph J. i Maring, S. J., new professor of Latin, who hails from quaint and historic Westphalia in the Ruhr | valley of Germany. "In Germany," declared Fr. | Maring (whose looks and speech identify him as a real Teuton),! "the student starts the study of Latin in the fifth grade of grammar school, and continues that i study for nine years, ending the I ninth year of Latin in the last year of high school with a serious criticism of such authors as Quintillius, Livvy, and the private correspond- j ence of Cicero. Of course, they | study Greek, too, but that language j has been almost cut out in this ! country." "Not only that," said Fr. Maring, "but before we can get a college SKIT SERIES STARTED BY CLUB "Le Malheureux Acteur" is First of French Club Playlets "Le Malheureux Acteur", a short skit by Albert Dupuy and Louis Gueniot, Arts and Science students and members of the French Club, will be presented Friday, March 10, at 4 p. m., in Marquette Auditorium, by the French Club.
