The two classes will start at a given signal from 'either side of the track about half way from the gym. Several referees will mingle in the melee to prevent unnecessary roughness, outright slugging, etc. The combat should be confined to wrestling and joustling as much as possible and above all no weapons will be allowed. When any referee blows his whistle, all contestants will immediately stop until penalized participant is ejected and the signal is given to resume activities.

U. at Baton Rouge, an audience vote gave a tie decision of 11-11, most of the audience not voting. Harry Wise, Richard Cadwallader and Allen Bell, upheld the affirmative against Loyola's negative team composed of Paul Barker, John Nugent and Stephen Rodi. In the New Orleans part of the dual debate with L. S. U., held in Marquette Hall, last night, Loyola defeaetd L. S. U. by a 51-16 audience decision. Leo Zinser, Sam McNeely and Harry Herman upheld the affirmative for Loyola, while Miss Elvira Burge, John Paul and Guy C. Mitchell argued the negative for L. S. U. Blue Key Begins Pledge Balloting Each Year National Fraternity Chooses Outstanding Juniors and Seniors The Loyola chapter of Blue Key, national honor student leadership fraternity, will meet Saturday at 1:30 p. m., in the student activities office, according to an announcement by Felicien Lozes, president. At the meeting the active members of the chapter will begin balloting on the students who will be chosen by the fraternity for initiation in May. Each year the fraternity picks the students from the junior and senior classes who have been outstanding student leaders or who have rendered outstanding service to the university. Membership in Blue Key is one of the outstanding honors that a student can receive while in school. President Lozes stated that more than a dozen of the delegates to the N. C. P. A. convention held here last week who were members of Blue Key were informally entertained by several members of the Loyola group. 2 REPORTERS GET EDITORIAL POSTS Home and Nugent Advanced By the Maroon Editor Two Maroon reporters, Daniel M. Home and John F. Nugent, were appointed to editorial posts on the paper by Paul Capdevielle, editor-in-chief, at a special meeting held this week. Home, who succeeds Emile Wagner as news editor, is a junior in the College of Arts and Sciences and engaged in journalistic work in his freshman year. He conducts the "Certain Point of View" column. He and Nugent have the honor of being the first students of journalism at Loyola to advance to editorial posts. Nugent, an Arts sophomore, was made feature editor of the paper, a post which has not been filled since the resignation of Ednard Waldo some weeks ago. Wagner resigned as news editor this week because of the pressure of scholastic duties. To "Doc" "Doc" Erskine, Loyola welcomes you. Everyone from the president of the University to the lowliest freshman is elated over your appointment as head coach of our athletic teams. They are elated not only because of your magnificent record at Jesuits High School, not only because of your proven ability to produce champions, but also because they know that you stand for that which is evn greater than victories—sportsmanship. Practically every student at Loyola has seen one of your teams in action. They have seen their display of clean sportsmanship,- their indomitable spirit against the greatest of odds, their ability to fight to the last minute; and they know that you will bring to Loyola teams that same spirit and sportsmanship. Loyola knows that you consider football not as a "racket" or a job, but as a game tat you love. Tey know that ,just as a real artist must love his work, a real coach must love the game. Your determination to study the game when physically incapacitated from playing proves that you have a true love of the game. Your coaching of sandlot teams is conclusive of the fact. » So v, «ty "Welcome Doc." The Maroon as voice of the students of Loyola addresss you in the familiar appellation because we know that you are interested in cultivating the friendship of the youths with whom you like to associate. We not only welcome you but we promise you our unqualified support and send you our best wishes for success in your new position. To the Team Under the leadership of "Doc" Erskine Loyola begins a new chapter in its athletic history. Whether that chapter shall be a success or a failure depends to a large extent upon you. You have as a coach a man of proven ability, the pick of more than 100 applicants. You have a man who will give everyone a "break" regardless of what he has been. You have further a man who will do anything within reason for you whether it be connected with sports or not, a man who will be your true friend both on and off the athletic field, who was not content to know you by number, but insisted on meeting you personally. He asks in return that you give him your wholehearted support. What he means by support was outlined to you last week. It consists in keeping training, keeping up in your studies and playing the game to the best of your ability. He has a right to ask this of you and it is your duty to him and to your alma mater to do this ior him. To the Student Body Without your support the team will not function at its best. Football is an emotional sport, a sport in which the mental attitude of the players is paramount. Unless the members of the team feel that you are backing them, they cannot give their best on the field. In the ultimate analysis, upon you depends the spirit of the team. And a team without spirit might just as well stay off the football field. The team of '33 will look to you for support. It's up to you. To the Athletic Council CONGRATULATIONS on securing for Loyola the best coach in this section of the woods.
