THE MAROON LOYOLA UNIVERSITY, NEW ORLEANS, LA., DECEMBER 8, 1933 Number 10 Volume XII COMMITTEE OBTAINS BEST OF TALENT FOR GYM NIGHT CLUB AND CIRCUS ENTERTAINMENTS Excellent Music and Popular Entertainers Feature Night Clubs NIGHT CLUBS TO BE THURSDAY AND FRIDAY Enthusiasm was at a high pitch this week as the plans for the Loyola Gym Circus neared completion. Entertainment for the two Rah Rah Night Club nights, next Thursday and Friday, was definitely settled upon and it was announced that James Wilson, popular radio announcer and singer, would act as Master of Ceremonies for the first night, while George McQueen, famous director of fun at Club Forest and nationally known song composer, would hold forth in the same capacity the second night. Three floor shows a night will comprise the entertainment for those lucky enough to make reservations for the Rah Rah Night clubs, and the best professional talent has been secured. The shows will be at 10, 12 and 2. The show on Thursday includes such well known and favored entertainers as Lillian Gerson, Lou Childre, Jerry Behrens, Jimmy Ruhl, Henry and Minerva and others. Friday William Coker and Joseph Skelly have secured a program made up of night club stars from Suburban Gardens, Club Forest and other popular local clubs. Other interesting features on the floor shows, include a Floradora Sextette, numbering Ut Winters, Frank Sullivan, "Savvy" Carboni, and other vivacious Wolves among the half dozen whose dainty pirouettes will delight the audience. Waitresses for the affair will be drawn from the student bodies of various girl's colleges and academies throughout the city, Ursuline College, Dominican College, Sacred Heart Academy, and Academy of the Holy Angels already having volunteered their aid. A record crowd is expected for the event and a huge tent will be erected just outside the" gym and fitted with a floor and decorations to correspond to the gym proper. This was found necessary, as the reservations received thus far indicate that the gymnasium alone will not be large enough to seat the number of persons expected. Elaborate preparations are being made for the decorations. Expert technicians ami de signers are to take care of the lighting effects and the desired night club atmosphere. Students should send in reservations to Lloyd Salathe, secretary of the student council. Many Features Planned For Last Two Days STUDENTS URGED TO MAKE TICKET RETURNS Reporting favorably on the ticket returns and the progress made toward a highly successful gym circus, the committee in charge and the friends of the university interested in the project, to be held December 14, 15, 16, and 17, met in Marquette auditorium Tuesday night. Leonard "Shorty" West requested that students make returns on their tickets as soon as possible. "Reservations for the night club are well up to our expectations," said Mr. West, "but returns on the gym circus have not been as speedy as they should be. Each student has ten tickets and it should be no difficult task for him to get in touch with that many friends and secure one thin dime from them." With even this much co-operation from the student body, success for the circus would be assured, declared Mr. West. Gar Moore, in charge of publicity for the affair, urged every student to tell friends about the circus and added that "this is best sort of publicity that we can get." Plans tor a donkey baseball game between the Loyola varsity football squad and the freshman team to be played on Sunday afternoon, December 10, were discussed at the meeting, but no definite agreement was reached. Handling and Cain Win Moot Decision In the first Moot Court of the year, held Saturday, Nov. 25, in the Civil District Court, Section E, moot lawyers Joseph Handling and Benet Cain, presenting the case of the plaintiff, won a jury decision by a vote of 10-2. George Leppert and Peter Treutel were attorneys for the defendant. Ellis Henican, 1.L.1'... prominent New Orleans attorney, presided as judge over the suit brought by the plaintiff, "Edwards", against the "Empire Oil Company." Edwards' son was drowned in a pond that had been dug by the oil company. Edward claimed that the pond was an "attractive nuisance" and brought suit against the company. Edwards was awarded $9100 when a jury decision favored him 10-2. The purpose of the Moot Court, in which mock trials are conducted is to give the seniors in the law school practice in pleading and defending cases. Wolves Lose Hard Fought Game To Centenary Gents Holding the powerful Centenary College Gents to a two-touchdown victory and allowing them only five first downs to their own nine, the Wolves finished one of their best and most spectacular seasons Thanksgiving Day afternoon before a record breaking crowd of 15,000 fans. Trailing 10-0 at the end of the first quarter, the Wolf Pack came back, and in two brillant drives of *64 yards and 32 yards tallied two touchdowns against the indomitable Gents. The entire second quarter was decidedly Loyola's and the spectacular drives led by Miller and Caillouette made the entire Shreveport aggregation sit up and take notice. In this period the I Wolves easily outclassed the Gents, making seven of their first downs in this period to the Up-Staters one. "Shorty" Oslin, Gent flash, opened the scoring of the afternoon after a fumble by Roy was recovered by Blakemore for the Gents on Loyola's 24-yard stripe. The ball was advanced to the nineyard line and was then carried by Oslin in one of the best running plays seen here in some time. Oslin took the ball and started around left end where he was met by too many Wolf tacklers. Oslin reversed his run and drove around the right end for the first touchdown of the game. Smith's attempt for the extra point was good. THEY PLAY NO MORE Perry Booth, Gino Ancaroni, and Buck Seeber, who finished their football careers of three years with the Pack Thanksgiving day. Booth and Ancaroni, Junior Dental students, have yet another year at Loyola; Seeber, an Arts and Sciences student, will graduate this year. Booth, Ancaroni And Seeber Played Last Game Thanksgiving Day Against Gents The Centenary game Thanksgiving Day saw the curtain fall on the college football careers of three of Loyola's great—Perry Booth, Gino Ancaroni, and William Seeber. They have been with Loyola through a dark period and have remained to see it fight its way into the limelight of a new era, and now that it has taken its first tottering step in that direction, they must leave. And that they do with regret.Perry Booth who captained the team through the last season, has been with the varsity squad for three years, and prior to that was captain of the freshman team. He came from Holy Cross where he played football for two years, and during his time at Loyola has blazed his name indelibly on the pages of the university's history by his skill, his spirit, and his determination. It will be impossible to forget him. "When you look back over the last few years," Perry reminisced, "you realize that they were the best years in your life. Once football gets under your skin and into your heart, it's hard to give it up. I felt badly about losing our last game; it was tough to lose, but I'm sure that the boys gave everything that was in them." That was all Perry had to say. Gino Ancaroni hails from Hazelhurst, Miss., where he spent five years at prep school playing football. He came to Loyola then, made the frosh team ,and was promoted to the varsity squad on which he played for three years. Gino is a great linesman. During his career he has played end, tackle, and National Hook Up For Loyola Debate A debate with Miami University, that will be broadcast over the National Broadcasting Chain, is the highlight of the debate schedule, announced by William K. Hamilton, president of the Edward Douglass White Debate Society, at the last meeting, held Monday evening in Marquette auditorium. The schedule includes such colleges as Dayton University, Louisiana College, and Southwestern of Memphis. The local teams already scheduled are: the Knights of Columbus and the Night School Debating Society. The first elimination contest to determine the varsity team, will he held next Monday, after a two week postponement.

Felicien Lozes, Tom Dunn, and Harold De Blanc will uphola, the negative. Leo Zinser, Edward Seghers, and Samuel McNeeley will speak for the affirmative.Chemistry Club Elects Officers The Chemistry club held its first meeting Friday Nov. 24 and elected officers for the current year. Lloyd Salathe, senior chemistry student, was re-elected president; Charles Roccaforte, vicepresident; James Armshaw, secretary; and Edward Spranley, treasurer.The monthly meetings of the club were set for the last Thursday of each month at 7:30 P. M. in Room 304, Bobet Hall. "Among the activities planned for the club", Salathe announced, "there will be a series of lectures and demonstration experiments, some of them given by members and others by chemists from various industrial plants in the city." Carrying out one of their steps of the program of activity the Chemistry Club seniors visited the Jackson Brewery. They were escorted throughout the plant and eaw various processes in the brewing of beer from the time it is in the form of malt and hops till it comes out as the finished product. The students were presented with a sample as they left the plant. HUNDREDS ATTEND ROSELL RECITAL Before hundreds of New Orleans' socially prominent music lovers, Carmen Rosell, well known soprano who starred in "Martha", last year's college of music production, gave a concert recital of various musical masterpieces Monday night, November 27, at Holy Name auditorium. The program was given to raise sufficient funds to allow Miss Rosell to continue her musical studies in Europe. Mrs. J. M. Quintero and Miss J. C. Montejo headed the presentation committee, serving as chairman and vice-chairman respectively.A feature that lent much to the color of the affair was the presl ence of the city's debutantes for the season 1933-34, who served as ushers. The consuls of the various nations represented in New Orleans were also in attendance. Scenery Secured For Coming Play Elaborate scenery and faithfulness to the minutest details is promised for the French Club's production of Labiche and Martin's "Le Voyage de Monsier Perrichon" at Loyola on December 17 and 19.

Martin Burke, S. J., head of the department of philosophy of Loyola University, told an audience Sunday night in Marquette auditorium, in the fifth lecture of the "Forum in Philosophy" series. Father Burke also considered the problem of women and children in industry during the lecture. •"""" "Women have a perfect right to work, but if they do, they should in practice receive the same amount of compensation as a man". Father Burke declared. "Women have entered the industrial field and worked for much less than men, and as a result of this, the wage scale that man receives has been reduced to that of the women.The discussions of current economic problems by Father Burke will be continued next Sunday at 7 p. m. The string ensemble of the Loyola college of music under the direction of Dr. Ernest E. Schuyten, dean, played classical selections from Wagner and Massenet.WOLVES PICK ALL OPPONENT TEAM Six Xavier Players Obtain Positions On First Team Five Teams Represented On Winning Eleven GEISLER AND OSLIN UNANIMOUS CHOICE Giving Geisler and Oslin. end and halfback for Centenary, their unanimous vote, the Loyola Wolves selected an All-Opponent team last i Tuesday, basing their decisions on the ability that the players showed in games against them this season. Frank Sullivan, Loyola center, was the only Wolf to vote for every member of the first team. Five of the teams on the schedule succeeded in placing members on the first team and players from seven colleges received at least one vote. It seems that the Wolves respect the players from Xavier more than the rest, for six were placed on the first two teams. Two more received honorable mention, making eight of the Xavier eleven formidable foes. Nine Centenary players received votes, but only four were placed on the first two teams. St. Louis ranks next in the balloting, tying with Centenary on the first team with three positions and with one second team choice and an honorable mention. Seven of the Nodaks were mentioned by the Wolves but only one placed on the first and two on the second. Rice and Southwestern were the choices for the remaining two first team positions, but Rice ranks fifth on the vote as two of her players were named for Hecond choice positions and another received honorable mention. Mississippi College and Spring Hill were the other two teams receiving voles for their players. The selection of the first team was comparatively easy, for each first choice received a safe majority.
