THE MAROON LOYOLA UNIVERSITY, NEW ORLEANS, LA., DECEMBER 15, 1933 Number 11 Volume XII ACTIVITIES HUM AS XMAS HOLIDAYS APPROACH- Gym-Cracks i 1 Music for the two Rah Rah Night Clubs will be furnished by some of the best musicians in the city. "Pinky" and his "Orleanians", Earl Dentin's Orchestra and Al Streeman's Band will definitely be there. A Fashion Show will be held at the Circus Saturday and Sunday. Well known campusites will perform as models and display the latest in styles. Prizes will be given. The Rah Rah Night Club will have every feature of any night club, it is said, with one exception. There will NOT be night club prices. Regular prices will prevail. Entertainment will be provided for children from the ages of 2 to 80 at the gym circus, for those nearer the tender ages can be amused by donkey rides, fish ponds and other special games for the youngsters. "Come and see for yourself" is the slogan of the committee members. So many and so diverse are the features offered that the committee will not attempt to tell us about them. The L. A. S. C. will have a booth at the Circus and when you want candy to them will you go. The huge tent (100 by 50 feet) is being loaned by Mr. and Mrs. Walter Walls. Mrs. Walls will be remembered by #ome as the manager of the Loyola cafeteria in 1926. It is rumored that Frank Tullos will again sing! But rest assured, for the committee has definitely ruled against "My Old River Home" as one of the selections. Perhaps even at that it won't be so bad, for Red Berner and George Joint will assist Frank when he falters on those high C's. Reservations for the Night Clubs are almost filled, "Shorty" reporting some large orders for tables. Three parties have reserved tables for 25. The spirit of the season will not be forgotten in the rush, for there will be a Christmas Tree booth presided over by Miss Viola Rareshide. The Lambda Nu Chi Sorority will be in charge of the Fish Pond and they promise many good fish in the sea. Father Greeley Gives Public Lecture "Scholastic Philosophy is not only alive today, but it is on the upward grade," said Father J. A. Greeley, S. J., dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, in a public lecture in the auditorium of the New Orleans Public Library on the evening of Tuesday, December 12. Before a large audience the dean presented his lecture on Scholastic philosophy under the title of "The Missing Chapter." The leaturer explained that his purpose was to supply the omission in Will Durant'e "Story of philosophy." After explaining the nature of philosophy in general, the lecturer pointed out that Scholastic philosophy continued as it began, as a revolt against chaos and a desire for order and careful appreciation, as well as understanding of fundamentals. Supplying the "Missing Chapter," Father Greeley outlined the history of Scholasticism through the eleventh to the thirteen centuries. He then briefly explained the content of Scholastic philosophy, showing the cohesion of parts, and comparing them to the organisms in a living body. References were made of the modern revival of Scholasticism in the Neo-Scholastlc movement. "The present trend in philosophy',' he said "is away from scepticism and idealism, away from Descarters, Hume and Kant and toward a system of philosophy that rests on sound first principles; a philosophy that defends reason and saves man from himself." In conclusion, Father Greeley Frosh Howl And Sophs Growl On Freshman Day The freshmen took over thfl reins of government in the university yesterday and made the sophomores toe the mark. Up to this time, the sophs had made the freshmen suffer untold indignities, but with the advent of Frosh Day, the shoe was transferred to the other foot. They say that money is scarce at the present time, but sophomores on the campus were even scarcer at noon yesterday. Some were home, hiding under their beds in mortal fear of the enemy, while others, it was reported, boarded freights for parts unknown. Others cut their classes and sought refuge in the safety of the downtown theaters, while still others (poor unfortunates) spent the better part of their lunch period playing target practice with the yearlings— they were the targets. The freshmen had the blood lust in their veins, and scoured every nook and cranny of the buildings in an attempt to unearth some offender. And when they found the desired offenders! Ah, me, there was naught but stinging sensations and burning reminders. What an impression the frosh did make! That was yesterday. The frosh still have today to wreak their re venge on the upperclassmen for the torments endured during the past three months. If th*y miss them today, well . . . But they are determined they will not miss. Sophomores beware! And then comes Monday. And then the world will be righted and even angrier sophs will deal severely with the now mighty rate. The Maroon extends to every member of the faculty and student body best wishes for a joyful Christmas ami a happy New Year. Great Football Schedule Near Completion To-day The greatest football schedule in the history of Loyola, including games with Mercer, Texas Christian XL, Centenary, and Mississippi A. & M., is rapidly nearing completion, Father Doonan, director of atletics, recently announced. The contracts have already been made with, T. C. U., Centenary, and Miss. A. & M., while games with three of the strongest Southeastern Conference teams are more than probable for the 1934 schedule. A game with Rice at Loyola, early in the season, is also likely. Approximately ten games will be on the Wolves schedule for the coming year and all of the teams under consideration would grace the hardest kind of a season for practically any college in the country. Coach "Doc" Erskine and Rev. J. B. Doonan have faitli in next year's Wolfpack and are trying to complete a schedule that will indicate exactly what they think of the prowess of the Wolves. "There is no reason why Loyola ahould not play any team In the country next year and we are confident of an even more than creditable showing regardless of the Circus Program THURSDAY, DECEMBER 14, 1933 Night Club- Music: 8:30 to 10—Blue Parody Orchestra (representing N.

This nineteenth century comedy is a perennial favorite on European stages. Four elaborate sets and an allstar cast will feature the production. Scenery has been borrowed from the Orpheum Theatre and has also been built by Loyola stagehands. Period furniture is being loaned by Feldmann's. Lights are in charge of Adrien Drouilhet, and makeup in charge of Felicien Lozes and Leo Zinser. The Loyola orchestra will play an overture of music popular in France at this period. This music will probably include the most popular selections from Verdi's and Gounod's operas. Special invitations have been sent to the French and Belgian consul-generals and to the presidents of New Orleans various French clubs and societies and theatres. Tickets are twenty-five cents apiece, and may be obtained from the information booth in Marquette Hall, from any member of the Loyola French Club or from the ushers at the door on the night of the performance. Gala Crowd Attends First Night of Rah Rah . Night Club COMPLETE NEW FLOOR SHOWS TONIGHT With a crowd that augurs well for t'ne success of the undertaking, the Loyola Gym Circus and Nife Club began last night when the Blue Parody orchestra and Pinkey's wwl Stair orcheietra filled the air with music far. far into the night. The sight that met the eyes of the capacity crowd was a gala one as ilie two hundred tables in the elaborately decorated gym began to fill with the merry makers. Long before the first floor show of the night, the very rafters hummed to the mumble and the rumble of, a thousand voices. Cigarette girls moved among the tables and black and white figures dotted the large floor as committeemen and head waiters seated the guestß. The lights, dimmed at the entrance end of the room by the long hanging streamers of the darker colors, purple, blue and green, cast brighter shadows on the crowd beneath as the rainbow theme brought the more vivid 'nues into the color scheme. At the far end of the room was the band platform, swinging from one side of the floor to the other in a half moon effect. At 9 p. m. the first floor show of the night was held and Irwin Lewis, popular master of ceremonies at Suburban Gardens introduced the four acts of the Jefferson Parish night club which were followed by three from the Vanity Club. The second show of the evening came from the university's radio station, WWL, and included popular songsters of the ether and broadcast comedians. James Wilson announcer on the station, presided over the show as master of ceremonies. Pinkey and his WWL Staff orchestra played from 10 to 11:30. The Blue Parody orchestra opened and closed the night. Second Nite Club Tonight Tonight at 8:30 there will be a repetition of the night club and reservations indicate that it will be even a greater success than was the first one last night. With an entirely different floor show, different performers, different orchestras, many of last night's attendance intend to put in an appearance and swell the crowd. Tonight Earl Dentin and Leslie George will furnis'h the music ana the first floor show comes direct from the stage of Club Forest with George McQueen as master of ceremonies. Later, the second show, an All- Star performance, will provide the entertainment. Circus Evident Whisperings -of what the circus would be like reached the ears of the night club frolickers last night Miniature of Plant Made By Students A miniature reproduction of a water purification plant as prepared by the senior chemistry students was shown and explained to members of the Chemistry Club, Thursday evening at the regular meeting. The demonstration followed a recent visit by t'ne senior class to the purification plant under the guidance of Frank Haas, assistant mechanical engineer of the plant. Efforts are now being made to have the entire Chemistry Club accompany the senior class on these visits to points of scientific interest, according to William Armshaw, secretary of the club.
