Timmreck was a member of the freshman football squad until an injury to his shoulder early in the season forced him to retire from play for the rest of the season. The new freshman president spent four years working during the interim between his graduation from high school and his entrance into college. Albert J. Weinnig, winner of the Blue Key fraternity scholarship from Jesuit High school, was named vice-president, and Bobby Martin, also a graduate of the Jesuit High school, was elected secretary. The election was one of the most hotly contested in the history of the school, according to Charles H. Bailey, vice-president of the Student Council, and Stephen B. Rodi and William Jaquith, sophomore class officers, who supervised the balloting. Thespians Present Sketch At Meeting The Loyola Thespians presented a skit for the benefit of the members at a meeting which was held in Marquette Auditorium last night. John Schilleci, president of the organization, announced that new members, including Music School co-eds, were admitted at this meeting. The names of these new members will be released later. The playreading committee of the Thespians is reading plays from which it will select the December production, Schilleci said. Unofficial reports are to the effect that this list of plays include such well-known dramas as H. C. Sheriff's "Journey's End". Entire University Assembled To Welcome Returning President Appreciation Of Welcome Expressed By Father Hymes Calling Loyola "not the biggest, but the greatest university in the world", Very Rev. J. W. Hynes S. J., president of the university, replied to a welcome tendered him by the student bodies of the assembled colleges and schools of the university last Tuesday morning in the Holy Name auditorium on his return from a conclave of the Jesuit order held in Rome this year. N. C. Petitjean, president of the student council, welcomed Father Hynes for the student body. Rev. J. A. Greeley, S. J., dean of the Arts and Science college, introduced the speakers. The thirty-five piece Loyola orchestra gave the musical accompaniment to the "Fig"nt Song" which was sung by the entire assembly. Commenting on the fine spirit of the school and expressing his thanks for the welcome, Father Hynes said that the return to Loyola was the best part of his trip. "Europe is a fine place to visit but America is the best place to come back to," said Father Hynes. "Europe has another type of civilization, essentially differing from our own. Fear of war, national hatred and other factors make life over there a great deal different from the American conception of It. I am certainly glad to get back to my own people and especially my own friends here at Loyola. I saw the St. Louis game and heard the most favorable comment on the team. The Wolves have a reputation of being a hard fighting bunch up there and their sportsmanship is well known. Of course, I know more. I know that the entire student body has the finest spirit of any university in the country. It is not the biggest, but the greatest university in the world." Returning President Expresses Views On Progress Of Loyola Loyola is slowly but surely coming to the front said Father Hynes, commenting on the progress of the university during his absence. "I was delighted to hear the announcement of the recognition given the Law School by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York. Our school is slowly but surely coming to the front and our substantial progress is being reflected in such announcements" he said. "Loyola is well and favorably known throughout the East and Middle West. Our progress should be slow but well secured. One step at a time, each one well backed up, is the policy of the university," he continued, "and the past few months have produced results according to just such a program." When asked of his experiences in Europe Father Hynes seemed to be impressed with his visit to the Shrine at Lourdes. "The expression of faith by thousands standing in the rain, coming day after day to the shrine, cannot help but produce an effect on anyone," he said. Another interesting fact mentioned by the president was a visit made by him to a Carmelite Convent in Naples. On a previous visit to Italy, Father Hynes was one of the first to see the results of a miracle, a cure of a most persistent case of meningitis being effected on one of the nuns the day before his visit. The president visited the convent and again saw the nun enjoying the best of health. While in France, Father Hynes noted a most interesting angle of the European view of our National Recovery Act. Professor Gilbert Chinard, teacher of French literature at Johns Hopkins University, visited his native land after fifteen years in America and described the N. R. A. as a "war against depression". "The American people are like an army on the march," he said, "and I know of no other nation that would or could possess such a strong and determined spirit as the Americans possess in this movement." "All of Europe is watching America", said Father Hynes", and is waiting for the results of President Roosevelt's action." The president left New Orleans around the middle of August to attend a Jesuit convention in Rome. Band Movement for State Concert Tour In preparation for a state-wide concert tour of Louisiana, the Loyola Band is starting a movement to secure new members. It will visit a number of cities throughout the state and if present plans are carried out it will be the greatest thing ever attempted by the organization. Anthony Muller, president of the band, is quoted as saying, "With a student body the size of Loyola's there ought to be at least 100 students familiar with some kind of musical instrument and there is no reason why Loyola shouldn't have one of the finest bands in the country." Anyone wishing to join the band is requested to see Father Mc- Donald or one of the officers. DEBATERS NAME SOCIETY AFTER JUSTICE WHITE Honoring one of the foremost students in the long history of Jesuit education, the late Chief Justice White of the United States Supreme Court, the Loyola Debating Society Monday night formally adopted for its title the Edward Douglas White Debating Society of Loyola University.

The final team chosen is composed of Carlos Lazarus, Miss Zichiohi, and John F. Nugent. George Angelinn was selected as alternate. Dead Eye Dick Makes Students Forget Dan Cupid, Survey Shows Lit.tle Dan Cupid has definitely taken a back seat to make room for the imposing figures of Sherlock Holmes and "Dead Eye" Dick, so far as the reading of books at the university is concerned. An investigation made this week shows that the majority of the student? are not interested in the silly, mushy fiction romances. The percentage is very small—only one out of every ten or twenty reading such narratives. The popular trend seems to be toward intriguing mystery stories, these being the most widely read. Next in line comes the highly active and dynamic adventure novels, !t being almost a toss-up between this kind and the detective type. Mrs. Marcy, the librarian, reported that only a very few read non fiction books books of travel and scientific treatises, and that still fewer read books of poetry. Of course, this excludes reference work. This goes to show that the ordinary college student still seeks his excitement and adventure in the pages of the best known and moat imaginative authors of the day. Whether the lack of interest in romances is due to the fact that the students would rather live that phase than read about it, is yet to be determined. FIGHTING Xavier Team Will Clash With The Wolves Tonight At 8 WOLFPACK PRESENTS A HEAVIER LINE Erskine Expects Hard Game From Team That Held Carnegie Tech Tonight at eight, the Wolves clash with the powerful Xavier Musketeers from Cincinnati. This year the Musketeers have a team of championship material and will come to New Orleans with a fighting team to break the 6-6 tie of last year. The game last year was played under very unfavorable conditions and neither team was able to function any too smoothly and show its true merit. Some of last year's stars are still on the Xavier line-up. Captain John Wiethe, senior tackle, is nraning in all-Ohio form, and Ken'ny Jordan, dashing halfback, has been one of the mainstays of the Musketeers this season. Sarpy will have an excellent Xavier kicker in Hal Pennington, fullback, to vie against, as Pennington has been consistently booting the ball 50 yards under almost all circumstances.According to Coach Erskine. who left after the St. Louis game to see Xavier in action, the Wolves will meet one of their best opponents tonight. He stated that the Xavier team looked very good against Centre, but that they vera not in the best ot condition then because of the hard games of the two previous weeks wih Carnegie Tech and Washington and Jefferson. All indications point to a very hard and interesting game. Out of six contests the Musketeers have won three. The three games lost were to three of the country's leading teams. The Musketeers have piled up 96 points to their opponent's 18, defeating Transylvania 31-0, Kenyon 33-0, and Adrian 3JJ-0. The Xavferians held the powerful Carnegie Tech team to a field goal weeks ago at Cincinnati. Tech has since defeated Notre Dame 7-0 jnd tied with Washington and Jefferson 0-0. The other two losses of the Musketeers were suffered at the hands of Centre 7-0, and Washington and Jefferson 8-0. Production Dates Announced For Student Opera January 30, February 1, will be the dates of the presentation of the student opera, "Chimes of Normandy," according to a recent announcement by the Rev. A. B. Goodspeed S. J., general chairman of the committee on production.Father Goodepeed also announced that the chorus was greadly augmented Tuesday when twenty-five students of Dominican and Ursuline Colleges joined the rehearsals. The chorus is as yet incomplete and an invitation has been issued to "anyone with a good voice" to join in the production.
