Wolf Gent Battle Heard In Europe I » It was generally known that the Loyola-Centenary game raised quite ,'a howl in this section of the country, but according to this latest report, it raised a bigger howl than we suspected. Word has just come into this office from Rev. J. B. Doonan, S.J., that the broadcast of the Thanksgiving Day contest was heard in the English Channel. Mr. Henry Mersch, a friend of Father Doonan, was returning from France via passenger ship. Things were dull aboard, so Mr. Mersch tuned in on the radio to see what he could pick up. The ship at that time was just about in the middle of the English Channel, t "By some freak of Fate, the dial was accidentally set to the call numbers of WWL, and over the loud speak• er came quite distinctly, the voice of the announcer reporting the , gains and losses of the Loyola- Centenary scrimmage. It was quite an unusual occurrence, so Mr. Mersch reported the occurrence to Father Doonan immediately upon his arrival here. Mr. Mersch is a native of Rayne, * La. and is a graduate of St. Charles College at Grand Coteau. At present, he is residing in New Orleans. RETREA TMASTER REV. THOMAS SHIELDS, S. J., dean of discipline at Springhill college and former professor here at Loyola, will conduct the Annual student retjreat that begins next Wednesday. Students To Work Under CWA and ERA Ten per cent of the college students in Louisiana are eligible for part-time jobs made possible by an appropriation by the Federal Emergency Relief Administration as announced by Harry J. Early, executive director of the ERA. They will be able to earn $10 to $20 a month and the work will be actually in or near the colleges. Only those students in collegiate or university institutions are eligible, and their needs must be properly certified. Mr. Early is informing all colleges of t'ne regulations covering this aid to needy students. Following is an outline of the regulations: All institutions of a collegiate or university character are included, and only those, provided they are non-profit making, as attested by the fact that their regular educational building and grounds are exempted from the property tax levied by the state or local community.Twenty-five per cent of the jobs allocated will be 011 the basis of the enrollment of full time students of college grade, or higher, as of October 15, 1933, and not more than seventy-five per cent of the current enrollment. A full time student is one carrying at least threefourths of the normal student program of courses. There will be jobs for not more than 10 per cent of the full time student enrollment. A college, to qualify, must present to the Emergency Relief Administration an affidavit, signed by the President, showing that the college comes within the restrictions; and that it will waive all fees for registration, tuition, laboratories and any other purpose for students working under this arrangement. The work on which the students will be put will cover the range of jobs customarily done in the Institutions by students who are working way through college—clerical, library, research work, and work on buildings and grounds, and in dining rooms and halls. The college will pass on the acceptability of all projects. Students to qualify must show Professors To Give Holy Name Lenten Talks Loyola professors will dominate the program for the lenten services in tlie university chapel, Church of the Holy Name, this year.

Seebers Beat Caillouettes To Tie Schmidts For First Place In Intramural League Upsetting the dcpe of the league, Seeber's intramural team defeated Caillouette's "ranchmen" in a hotly contested game 17 to 12 last Friday afternoon. Am a result of the fighting defenses put up by both teams the scoring was kept to rather small figures. Seeber's men played a steady, careful game, watched for openings and took advantage of them when affered a chance for a tally. The combination of Seeber, McNeeley, Maggiore, Scheurma.i and Lucia did very well for the Seebers with McNeeley, Maggiore and Seeber as their outstanding players. Caillouette's team fought all the way but were unable to outscore the Seebers. Tulles was the outstanding player of the "ranchmen" and one of the best of the evening. ] At forward he managed to make j Seeber's guards sit up and take no- | tice. The combination of Tuilos, J Daigle, Miller, Biownson and Lopez was the main threat of Cail- j louette's team. In the second game of the afternoon Bailey's team won over Scheyd's team by the score of 48 to 24. Bailey's team, with Elliot and Devlin at forward, scored easily over the Sclieyds. Scheyds only threat lay in Canelas, Clarke, Rieth, Delaney and Scheyd but they were not able to keep up the pace set by the Baileys. In the only game played Wednesday night Schmidt remained tied for first place by defeating Schiro's team 38 to 19. Schmidt's team promises to be one of the first place teams at tlvj end of the seasno.Only two teams, Schmidt's and Seeber's are now tied for first placeA In the next round Schmidt will meet Scheyd and Seeber will 1 meet Scheyd. After these games j the two contenders for first place J will meet to decide who will be the [ leaders of the race. The past week was rather slow for the intramural games because of the Mardi Gras holidays but they will get under way again at once. The four leading teams of the league may play a tournament to decide the final winners of the league after the first round is completed. SCHEDULE FOR 1934 RETREAT Wednesday, February 21 8:30 A.

CELEBRATE, BUT AFTER The purple, gold and green of Rex gave way Wednesday to a rather faded maroon and gold. Students, snatched from a mad whirl, struggled wanly, weakly, wearily back to school. Noise, maskers, floats, glitter, glamour, hilarity—they're all gone now. But they didn't fade away easily and naturally, any number of students complain. "Too soon after you hail the king of mirth, you have to chirp, 'Good morning, dear teacher,' " say they. "Even if it had been fixed so's we had to go to school Monday and coulda got off Wednesday things woulda been alright", they reiterate. "But no—the withered pointlessness of it all. Back to school— so soon—back to school we must go—go." "Oh, watta time, watta time", whispers Willie. Then he wakes up and finds himself in chemistry lecture. Pshaw! Two-heads and tousled heads lay on desks. The poor bohunk with the 9 o'clock class pities the poor bohunk with an 8 o'clock class, and the man with an 11 o'clock one pities them all. Everybody's sad and pitying. They wail and sob "Oh, it's too soon, too soon." "Black Wednesday" was last Wednesday at Loyola. Hurrah! It's all over, now. Frosh Leading Sophomores In Trophy Tourney j J. J. McCann Wins Oratorical Contest by Unanimous Vote The Hausmann Trophy contest reached the crucial point last Friday morning when the freshmen defeated the sophomores in the oratorical contest, the third event. The freshmen are now two up on the second year men, having previously won the debate. The tug-of-war event was a draw. John J. McCann, freshman arts and science student, received the unanimous vote of the judges as the best speaker, and thus gave the lower classmen their decisive lead. The judges in the contest were Dr. R. D. Doyle, professor of history; Dr. J. V. Connors, head of t'ne economics department; and Capt. Hensley L. Lacy, professor of English. Milton J. McGovern was the col] league of McCann on the side of ' the freshmen, and Matthew Braniff | and Amos Nichols were the representatives of the sophomore class. Stephen B. Rodi, president of the sophomore class, was originally chosen as representative, but due to the unfortunate death of his grandmother Thursday, was unable to be present. Nichols was substituted for him late Thursday. The subject matter for the orations was any phase of "The New Deal". The contestants were judged by their delivery, personality, pronunciation, enunciation, j and gestures. Individual merits determined the winner; that is to say, the class represented by the one determined upon as the best speaker with regard to these five points, won the contest. The speeches were limited to ten minutes.* Charles H. Bailey, president of the student council, was chairman. FRENCH CLUB DANCES French club members enjoyed the dance given in their honor Saturday night in the home of A. P. Schiro, 111, under the direction of Captain H. L. Lacy. This is the first of a series of bi monthly dances to be given for the French club. Its business meetings are also held twice a month. Law Seniors Hold Second Moot Trial Senior law students will hold their second moot court of the school year Saturday, February 17, when they engage in the mock trial of a suit brought by one Clara Bowman against S. M. Childs and Mrs Ernest Furlough for alleged injuries received while entering Childs' store by way of a revolving door in which Ernest Furlough Jr. was playing. The trial will be held at 7:30 p. m. in Division E of the New Orleans Court Building.u the Civil District Court, New Orleans Court Building, on Royal St. Paul J. Maybeno and William J. Gruber will be the attorneys for the plaintiff Mrs. Bowman; Allan S. Lacobie and J. Skelly Wright will be attorneys for the defendant S. M. Childs, while the defendant Mrs Furlough will have Albert S. Rose and Henry L. Hemelt as her attorneys. The Hon. John D. Miller, New Orleans attorney, will preside as judge over the trial which will be directed by Mose C. Scharff also a local attorney. The fake case to be tried in thi3 moot court arose when Mrs. Bowman was entering the store of S. M. Childs and is alleged to have received serious knee cap injuries. Ernest Furlough Jr., six years old, was in the act of playing in the revolving door and struck Mrs. Bowman with the door throwing her to the floor. The question of the extent of the injury will be hotly contested. CAMPUS NEWS ON WWL The student quarter hour over the university broadcasting station WWL at 6 p. m. yesterday was conducted by Adrien Drouilhet, who summarized the events of last week on the Loyola campus. Among the events discussed, Drouilhet emphasized the coming retreat, the plays to be presented by the Thespians over the weekend, and the Hausmanu trophy oratorical contest won by the freshmen.GIVES MATH HISTORY J. O. Monasterio, professor of mathematics and advisor of the algebra seminar of Descartes Matematics society, addressed the members of the society on "The History of Mathematics" at their regular monthly meeting. The his(ory of mathematics from 3,000 B. C. up to the present and the origin of its various branches, were given by Professor Monasterio during the address. ■THESPIAN PRODUCTION TOMORROW THREE ONE-ACT PLAYS SET FOR TOMORROW AND SUNDAY OPEN THESPIANS' ACTIVITY OLD THESPIAN STARS APPEAR AGAIN IN TWO EVENING PERFORMANCES AT EIGHT IN AUDITORIUM The first Thespian production of the year will take the form of three one-act plays to be presented tomorrow and Sunday in Marquette auditorium at 8 p. m. under the direction of Alfred J. Bonomo, LL. D. "This is the first Thespian activity of the year," said John D. Schilleci, president of the society today, "and we expect it to be a big success. The members of the casts have been rehearsing diligently for the past few weeks and they are prepared to give their best." Edward Driscoll, A. P. Schiro, 111, Jo'nn D. Schilleci, and Winter' Trapolin, all of whom have played important parts in past productions, again have leading roles. Edward Driscoll plays the part of Bob Kandall, a college student, in "His Majesty, the Queen;" A. P. Schiro 111, portrays the father in "The Beloved Chair;" John D. Schilleci gives a side-splitting characterization of the thief in "Sham;" and Winter Trapolin portrays the husband to perfection in the same play. Two of the plays—"His Majesty, the Queen," and "Sham"—are farces, and "The Beloved Chair" is a melodrama. The casts follow in full: "His Majesty, the Queen" Mrs. Richardson Atwood, a social leader Yvonne Galatoirre Beatrice, her daughter - Mildred Casanavette Mildred Farrington, a reporter . Louise DeTarnowsky Bob Randall, a college student Edward Driscoll Bill Keith, Bob's room-mate L. P. Artman Olaf, the janitor Samuel McNeely Birdie, Olaf's bride-. Thelma Mae Mouledoux "The Beloved Chair" The Father A. P. Schiro, 111 The Mother Mrs. Tourance Marshall Sue Winifred Yochim Cecilia Althea de Latour Billie Robert J. Lacey, Jr. "Sham" The Thief John D. Schilleci The Wife Edna Mae Neyrey The Husband F. Winter Trapolin The Reporter Joseph Martin Frosh Five Enters Second A.A.U. Round The freshman basketball team eked out a 34 to 32 win over the Y. M. H. A. Thursday night to enter the second round of play in the A. A. U. league in a tie for first place with the N. O. A. C. The H. A. five were in their best form of the season and almost turned the tables ou the Frosh, but the fine floor work of Captain Alfaro and the goal tossing of Hughes, Walle, Staub and Lawrence snatched the game from the Hebrews in the final moments of play. Both the Frosh and the N. O. A. C. have won five games and lost one, and they lead the race as play enters the second round, with the Knights of Columbus in second place and the Y. M. C. A. drawing up in third position. The Frosh were scheduled to play the N. O. A. C. outfit last night, and the outcome of that game will probably decide the winner of the title. BOOK STORE CHANGES LOCATION THIS WEEK The university book store moved last week into'larger quarters in Marquette hall basement. The move was a long anticipated one, the old book store at the Marquette hall entrance being rather Cramped. Partitions from the president's office and new book bhelves give the room an excellent appearance. The old book store will be made a vestibule to Father Hynes' office. The book store move is part of the- building program going on about school. Music school reconstruction is well on.
