Tin seismograph, instrument (or the recoi ling of earthquakes, has been final! loved to its new location. After di ration of the opinions of man foremost in seismology, it was iln :'.\- ■] to house the delicate instrument in Room 112 of Robot Hall. Due :■' the fact that the edifice in which the seismograph was formerly located obstructed tin- view to the en■ ■ the New Science Hall, it was found necessary to move it.

INTRAMURAL TEAMS PRACTICING HARD UNDER COACHES Students Enthusiastic Over New System; Turn Out in Large Numbers. Intramural football has been launched at Loyola. Under the supervision of their respective coaches, the various class teams are daily practicing hard and earnestly. The enthusiastic manner in which the students have turned out tor their class team aUßurs well for the success of the intramural system at Loyola. This is the first trial of the system that has made Kiuite Rockne and the Notre Dame teams famous in the world of spurts. This system lias been fostered to such a state of perfection at Notre Dame University that the institution is commonly regarded, and with just cause, as the model, the sue cessful result of intramural football. Athletics in the past decade has become an important and inseparable part of our school life. Colleges are classed today, educational institutions air il.-issrd today, not according to their scholastic ratings, nor according to their antiquity and traditions, but by the records of their football teams, More Americans can tell you of the fame- of the "Four Horsemen" than can name the members of tin. President's cabinet. Few of the average I us who constitute the majority of the population of the world would have heard of or thought of the University of Illinois had not "Red" Grange and former Illinois football teams made it famous. As athletics and football in particular constitutes such an important part of modern college life, and as the intramural football plan is looked upon as a progressive step in football, the Maroon approves and encourages the installation of the new system and wishes it all possible success LOYOLA BOAT RIDE WELL ATTENDED Boat Decorated in Colors of the University; Fate Marble's Band a Feature. Loyola's second annual boat ride took place on Friday, January 23rd, on the steamer Capitol. from the attendance and the entertainment afforded, the enterprise was a very succussful one. The boat was decorated in the university colors of maroon and gold. The entire second deck was reserved for dancing, On the lower deck refreshments were served during the intermissions. The splendid heating facilities of the Capitol enabled all to enjoy themselves without suffering from the chilliness of the weather. The steamer left the wharf at nine o'clock and proceeded up the river, returning to the dock at twelve. A feature of the ride was Pate Marble's jazz band. It is from St. Louis, Mo., and is made up of twelve pieces. ■ SEMESTER EXAMS UNDERGO CHANGE Bi-Monthly Replace Half-Term Exams. A new ruling for semester exams in th ecollege department has been made and will go into effect immediately. Whereas, formerly, exams were held at the end of a semester, they are to he held hereafter at the end of every two months. They will he called quarterly exams. The new system does not necessarily do away with monthly test*. These may, or may not he given as the professors shall choose. The chief advantage which the new ruling produces, is the opportunity which it provides the student with for a greater mastery of a course, or of a definite section of a course. With more time allowed, as the new ruling allows, a fuller and more intense study of a particular subject can he done. MAYOR OF CITY TAKES OATH Asks for Assistance and Unwavering Co-operation; Jobs Awarded. The mayor of the city of New Or leans, John J. Dullenty, who was elected by the students Cn the univer shy on February 3rd, was duly inaugurated at a lD:ill given in his honor in the gymnasium on Saturday, February 7th. In attendance was a large number of students of the universit) and friends of the successful candidate. The mayor arrived on the scene at 10:10 o'clock sharp. llC- was accompanied by the usual retinue of admirers and job-seekers. When his machine drew up before the entrance, a large crowd had gathered, awaiting anxiously for his arrival. When the news was transmitted to the dancers within, there was a general rush for the doorway to greet and congratulate the newly elected mayor. LOYOLA REGRETS DEPARTURE OF DALY NEXT YEAR Assistant Loyola Coach to Be Head Mentor at Springhill. With considerable regret came the announcement during the week that Coach Bill Daly will leave Loyola after thi-. semester to take up the coaching duties at Sprinnliill College. Daly will have charge of all athletics at the Mobile institution, succeeding Mickey Conners who has resigned. Coach Daly and Professor Daly had come to be liked and respected by all of us who came in contact with him either mi tin, athletic fields or the classroom, While acting in the capacity of assistant coach, first under Hill Flynn and la-t season under "Moon" Ducote, Daly's value to Mi. Wolves was immeasurable. The excellent condition of the Loyola team last fall can in a large measure be ascribed to the -~t itV scrimmages which they received at the hands of Bil Daly's scrubs. Alter making quite a record a football and baseball player at Holy Cross, the new Springhill coach receivedWORK PROGRESSING ON 1925 ANNUAL System Working Well; Contract Let; New Cover for Book Selected. From the management of the 1925 Wolf comes the announcement that more than one-half of the photographs to In- used in the Animal have been taken. This includes all the required pictures of the students of the Phar macy, Dentistry, and College Depart mm!-,. The Freshmen of these departments will be taken in a group in the near Future, and it is expecti d that with the close of the week all the pictures of the Law School students will have been taken.
