Most of the other departments and colleges also report an increase. The total registration for the year 1932-33 was 304 and the count has reached 378, according to the latest returns. The School of Dentistry, with returns incomplete, has registered 150 as compared to 142 for last year.

The School of Law is well up with the other departments and colleges with a registration of 90 for this year, a gain of 8 on the previous enrollment. The College of Pharmacy, with more registrations to "ollow, has two more names to add Ju order to equal last year's total. Tnese figures include only the day classes. Night and Saturday classes have no registration returns available at present. UNIVERSITY MASS IS INAUGURATED Inaugurating a University Mass, the Sophomore class of the university attended mass at the Me- Dermott Memorial Chapel, September 22, followed by the second of the series, sponsored by the Freshman class, September 29. "Tlie idea of the University Mass is to make the students realize that we have a university chapel and to use it as such," said Rev. R. A. Mac Donald, S. J., Dean of Men, in explaining the purpose of the Mass. "The Sophomores and Freshmen have made fine showings, but I am sure that they will not outdo the other two classes in their cooperation."The Junior and Senior classes are to attend the 7:30 mass this morning. All four classes will unite next week, Friday, October 13, in the fourth of the series. HOME-COMING SET FOR THANKSGIVING The second annual Home-Coming of the Loyola Alumni Association will be celebrated Thanksgiving Day at the Loyola-Centenary football game. A gala day full of fun and entertainment is planned by the Association. As many of the members of the Alumni as possible are expected to be on hand.

OPINION DIVIDED ON FROSH HAZING Loyolans, both upperctassmen and freshmen, according to a recent survey by the Maroon, unanimously favor freshman hazing as the best known stimulus to promote school spirit. Opinion, however, was almost evenly divided, on the system of hazing at Loyola. XJpperclassmen who did not favor the system of hazing at Loyola, thought tnat the rules should be more strictly enforced, while freaii.i.ci. fo.ind fault with the partiality of the enforcement of the system. It would seem that freshmen would be decidedly against the freshman rules and hazing that so hamper their natural tendencies of boisterousness and vivacity. However, the survey shows that they enjoy it all—especially the belt line. Those two sweet young co-ede who were so entertaining at the last football game were not interviewed as to their opinion concerning the subject, but we have our own ideas of how they feel about it. One freshman who had just lost his curly blond locks and was rubbing his hand unbelievingly over a shiny bald cranium, when asked if he favored freshman hazing emphatically replied "no"! Stephen B. Rodi, president of the sophomore class, and commanderin-chief of the enforcement of freshman rules, announced himself very much in favor of hazing "as To New Era? "Doc" Erskine head Wolf coach, is bringing a New Era to Loyola 'ootball according to sport experts throughout the South. New Era in Loyola Football To Be Tested in Rice Game By LOUIS BROWNSON With two victories behind them the Loyola Wolves appear to be fulfilling the prediction of a new era in football at Loyola. At t'ne beginning of the season those in the know began speculating as to the chances of the Wolves this year. A new coach, a heavy line, and a light, fast backfield promised Loyola fans a highly successful season. But Loyola was nevertheless an "if" team—lt Iβ still an "if" team. That Is, with a new system to learn and somewhat of a scarcity of material to work with, Loyola is yet an "if" team until they pass that final test—RlCE. The Rice game is undoubtedly the big test game, the game that can make or break the team. The results of the Rice game will depend upon what effect has been made upon the Wolves In the last few weeks. If they have acquired the willingness to learn and the desire to win, the aggressiveness of action, and have overcome the tendency to let down after scoring a touchdown, then the Wolves will no longer be an "if" team. The Rice game, therefore, tells the tale. R. H. "Doc" Erskine, a young, enthusiastic, and very well Informed coach, is putting forth his entire efforts to mould 28 handpicked varsity players into a smooth-working, winning football team. Having studied under the masters of football strategy, "Doc" Erskine knows the game from all angles. His ability to handle men and situations is recognized as the major factor in his successful career as a high school coach and promises to carry him to even further heights'. Thp Wnlvp«' Him is a« eood an if not better than any former Wolt wall. The tackles, Captain Booth and "Beans" Carey, are probably the beet pair of tackles Loyola has ever had. The guards, Ute Winters, Geno Ancaroni, George Finnan, and "Red" Brumfield, are not of the spectacular type, but are more of the hard fighting, never-let-up variety. At the end positions, are two large, fast men, Tullos and Ballatin, who together with the wingbacks should be able to box out defensive tackles, of the most aggressive type, on reverse plays. The experts all pronounce Frank Sullivan as one of the best pivot men in Dixie and Jimmy Lopez is close behind him. The backs as a whole are very light for college football, but it is believed ' that tfieir speed and versatility will more than overcome their lack of poundage. Joint, Jones, and Beter, are three smart signal callers. Roy and Beter who take care of the spinner post can handle the ball nicely and both are splendid blockers. Rizzo, Jones, Seeber, and the other wingbacks are hard drivers and runners and should roll up much yardage for the Wolf-Pack. At the tailback position, Joint, big. hard-driving Tom Caillouette, and Bob Sarpy, supply the Wolves i with varied attacking weapons. COMMERCE CLASSES OFFERED LECTURES "Man who has solved his social and religious problems will not fail to find a solution to the economic problems that confront him", Guy V. Lyman, of the Pacific Mutual Life Insurance Co., told the students of the department of commerce and finance last Friday in Marquette Auditorium at 11 a m. The lecture was the first of the annual series offered for the students of the business course. Mr. Lyman, in his address, titled "The Art of Saving", stressed the importance of saving in the economic system, and outlined the part that it plays in economic functions. The speaker was introduced by Rev. Joseph A. Butt, S. J., head of the department of commerce and finance. Annual Suspended Faculty Announce There will lie n \\-Dlf this year! Announcement by Rev. R. A. Mac Donald, S.J.. Director of Student Activities, iDit an end to all speculation as t i whether or not there would hC I I!i:t4 annual. Finances have I •■in given as the deciding factor in the decision made by the fa,ulty board. "We understa d that some of the students typ CCi;Ue the annual and we too. regi ft that there will be no Wolt this .ear,,, said Father Mac Donald, "bu high fees for publications run up the cost of a college education and prevent many from entering college. We are not alone la our decision to abandon the annual, for universities all over the country are continuing the practice." CATHOLIC EDUCATION STRESSED Catholic College Student Has Fight Ahead of Him, Priest Says The Catholic college student must prepare himself to wage the fight of the church against the forces of irreligion, atheism, socialism and communism. Rev. Michael Dunn, O. F. M., told the assembled student bodies of Loyola University and Ursuline College Thursday, September 28, at the celebration of t'ne Mass of the Holy Ghost, in the McDermott Memorial Church. The Mass is the annual official religious ceremony marking the opening of classes at the university. "The battle of life is a battle of intellect", Father Dunn said. "The college student must prepare himself for this battle. The Catholic Church needs an educated laity today as it never needed it before". "The Catholic Church", he said, "will not experiment with your mind and soul by subjecting you to every "ism" and "ology" that comes into prominence. It will give you an education based on the sound wisdom of the ages". Rev. John D. Foulkes, S. J., regent of the school of law and vice-rector of the university, was the celebrant of the Mass. Hymns DEBATE SOCIETY NAMES OFFICERS Officers elected at the first fall meeting of the Debating Society held in Marquette auditorium were: W. K. Hamilton, president; C. P. Barker, vice-president; John F. Nugent, secretary; E. Driscoll, treasurer; and Tom Dunn, sergeant-at-arms. The new moderator, Capt. Heneley B. Lacey, in- j troduced by the retiring president, j Leo Zinser. Capt. Lacey will act as ' moderator in place of Rev. Fr. William Harty. Induction of new members to the Debating Society was postponed to a later meeting of the organization. BLUE EAGLES SIT ON SHAVED HEADS It may be the latest "What's What" in men's fall fashions, 01 it may be an NRA movement tc increase the sale of felt hats, but whatever It Is, there is at present a profusion of clean-shaven heads among the freshmen. At the laat count taken, there were 20 such oddities. Investigating further, it was found that this "anti-personal appearance" vogue is the distin gulshing characteristic of the Texas and Utah Ranches. But the Utah, feeling itself becoming "commonized". indivfdualistlcally enough, left just one little tuft of curly hatr right on the front of the head of its latest victim. This mark of distinction has become the freshman's pride and joy. and he displays it with dignity. To show that the "rats" are from Loyola, the letters "L. U." are painted with mercurochrome across the bumpy surfaces, and to show that Loyola is NRA (Nudists Reveal All), a blue eagle is perched atop one shiny pate by the means of a rubber stamp and an ink pad (surely the jester did not mean to imply that the head resembled the top of a flag pole). Pity these poor frosh, then, who will have no hair to pull out during the examinations! LOYOLA SPEEDS TO HOUSTON TEAM AND 500 STUDENTS GO WEST FOR REVENGE Wolves Determined to Reverse Last Year's Defeat by Owls By T. DUNN Remembering last year's defeat, the Loyola Wolves board the Houston Special tonight determined to keep their record clean and chalk up their third victory for this season. The let-down given fans by the Southwestern game last week places the Wolves In the right mental attitude and "Doc" Erskine has been giving stiff assignments to the backs and linemen all this week, ironing out the rough spots that showed up. Every member of the squad realizes the test that Rice will give the team and all are j determined that the Owls will I taste defeat for the second time I this year. The Wolves will be facing a worthy foe in the Owls. The Rice team lost a hard-fought battle to the L. S. U. Tigers 13-0 last Saturday night and are going to be on their toes to prevent their goal line from being crossed tomorrow afternoon. In Witte, the Rice 200 pound back, the Wolves will have a man worth watching. Rice won their opening game against the Texas Agricultural and Industrial College, 7-0 and are pointing to the Wolves ae their next victim. Jack Meagher may be handicapped by a comparatively small squad, but the Wolves have proved that numbers don't count when the eleven men go out on the field. Rice has added several new men to their varsity squad and will place an experienced team on the field tomorrow afternoon. Both teams experienced setbacks and are equally determined to clear up Two Special Trains to Carry Students on Second Rice Trip Packed with five hundred students and followers of Loyola, two , special trains will leave New Or- J leans Friday at 11 p. m., bound for J the fair city of Houston, where they will see a rejuvenated squad of Maroon and Gold warriors do battle Saturday afternoon with the Owls of Rice Institute. Schedules have been arranged Iso that fans may see the game * between the Loyola Freshmen and the Poplarville Aggies, and still have time to make the trains for Houston. The 60 piece Loyola band, who will make it their business to see that the Wolf Pack and its followers lack nothing in the way of pep, will travel on the Southern Pacific Special. The Missouri Pacific Special will he accompanied by several musicians to enliven the journey for the rooters. The entire following will arrive in Houston at 9 a. in. Saturday I with plenty of time to get located I before the game starts. Rumors have been spread that there will be a repetition of the pre-game parade held in Houston last year just before the game. I Ail, 1 Un gridiron etrugglf i.-. I finished, the Loyolans will have I plenty to do and see, including a j dance at the University Club Sat- I urday night and various sight see- t ! ing tours. J All in all the future holds bright prospects for the Texas-going Loyolans this week end. The more " the merrier!
