Third Campus Program Given An outline of the Loyola football schedule by Louis Brownson and a rendition of one of the Alma Mater songs submitted in the contest, were the highlights of the third Campus Quarter Hour broadcast over station WWL last night. Brownson, scout and statistician for the Wolf Pack, was introduced by Charley Bailey, director and announcer of the program. To conclude the broadcast. Bill Scheyd, accompanied by S. Cliristianson, sang the song entered in the Alma Mater contest by Leo Zinser and S. Christianson. Burke Gives First Philosophy Forum Says Idea Of Morality Must Change For N. R. A. To Succeed Asserting that the N. R. A. will never succeed until the American people revamp their ideas of morality, Rev. Martin Burke, S. J., head of the philosophy department, resumed the Philosophy Forums of last year Sunday evening in Marquette auditorium. The program began at 7 o'clock and was broadcast over the university's radio station, WWL. "The N. R. A. is founded on firm hnsi'- principles," stated Father Burke, "but will never succeed as long as the American people continue to look out for no one but themselves. This fact is recognized by President Roosevelt and he is trying to make the citizens cooperate in sacrificing their immediate needs for a greater and more lasting need." Father Burke found only one fault with the recovery program of the President, and he pointed this out in a forceful analysis of the problem. "The whole problem is one of distribution, for no one denies that the wealth is present. We must find some way to make consumption catch up with production," he said, "and until this is done we can not expect recovery." "The government is going about FRESHMAN CLASS FORMS SODALITY To organize the Freshman Sodality, members of the freshman elan assembled in Marquette auditorium Tuesday morning under the direction of officers of the Upperclassmen Sodality, and agreed that tho business meetings shall be held on the second Thursday of each mouth and the spiritual meetings on the third Wednesday.

It was also decided that the dues of the sodality would not be any fixfd amount, and, following the example of the Upperclassmen Sodality, an outside speaker will be obtained for each business meeting. Rev. R. A. McDonald, S. J., director of the sodality, addressing the sodalists, described the sodality as "essentially a man's organization founded by the Jesuits." Henri Wehrman To Appear In Opera Completing the cast of principals for the student opera "Chimes of Normandy", announcement was maCie this week that Henri Wehrman, prominent singer and actor in the city, will take the role or Gaspard. "A few additions to the chorus," said Rev. A. B. Goodspeed, S. J., chairman of the production committee, "will complete the entire cast. Renearsals have revealed some very good singers among the students and the musical quality of the production should equal the comic features for which the piece is famous."

Wolves To Face Difficult Tasks On Comeback Trail By Louis Brownson After hitting the come-back trail for three consecutive and impressive victories over Springhill. Saint Louis, and Xavier, and showing a splendid blocking spirit interwoven into their attack, the Loyola Wc!ves are preparing in a very serious manner for three difficult tasks. The tasks: Mississippi College, North Dakota and Centenary. The Wolves have come a long way now. They have played six games, won five, and lost one. They have scored a total of 127 points to their opponents 18. This is an average of twenty-one and one-sixth points per game for Loyola, while opponents have been able to average only 3 points. Coach Erskine and his Wolves are in a rather serious mood as they realize the difficulty of the task that confronts them. "Doc" ha? injected some new stuff into the offense and the players have takon to it like wildfire. Every member of the team knows that the North Dakota and Centenary games will be tough, but no one is overlooking the fact that Mississippi College was undefeated until their contest with Mississippi State, last week.
