THE MAROON LOYOLA UNIVERSITY, NEW ORLEANS, LA, MARCH 2, 1934 Number 19 Volume XII INTER-COLLEGIATE DEBATES START CAMPUS ACTIVE AS C.W.A. WORKERS REPORT FOR JOBS; START REPAIRS Studentb Catalogue Books In Bobet Library, Work In Book Store President Roosevelt's recovery program took definite form on the campus this week as students rep; istered for part-time jobs under ths CWA reported to Rev. Ronald A. Mac Donald, S. J., in charge of Ih? student jobs at Loyola, and were assigned to work in various departments of the university. A large number of those who ap plied for clerical jobs were put to work in Bobet library, rearranging and cataloguin gthe books. Others received positions in the student library and the book store. Those who registered for manual jobs were kept busy painting and remodeling the former book store, and repairing the damage done In the music school by the recent fire. At the end of each day, all student workers are required to sign a slip statin gtheir name and the number of hours they have worked. The necssary funds needed 10 meet the payroll will be transferred each month to the president of the university by the State Relief Administration under the direction of Harry J. Early. The maximum amount of work allocated to each student is thirty hours a week at thirty cents an hour. CHEMISTS ENTERTAIN Thursday night was visitor's night at the Chemistry club regular meeting hold In Bobet hall. The feature of the meeting was a series of intricate experiments which met with the thorough approval of the audience. Lloyd Salathe presided. "School Daze" Given By Jesuit Alumni Fourteen Loyola students participated in the Jesuit Alumni production, "School Daze", a brainstorm in one-act written by Georso Leppert and Bentley Byrnes. In the play, the members ot th'i class under the professorship cf W. J. Leppert, George Leppert's father, included Milton McGovern, Samuel McNeely. Charles Bailey, George Joint, Lucien Delery, James Nix, Jr., and William Roy. These boys brought on storms of laughter with their witty introductions of the special characters, and their peculiar antics in the classroom, a duplicate of the rooms at Jesuit high. In the list of special characters we find John D. Schilleci, who took the role of Nero and almost brought the roof down with his fine impersonation of that famous Roman character. George Leppert as the crystal gazer who prohesied everything in verse, received rounds of applause for his priase of "Doc" Erskine and others. Emmet Toppino came on the stage dressed a* a race horse, and Matt Ballatin was the executioner of Anno Boleyn. In the re-presentation of Little Nell, George Joint was Little Nell's father, and Paul Barker played the part of the big bad villain who "did wrong by Little Nell". Tom Brahney literally walked away with the show when he gave his dual characterization of Henry the Eighth and Little Lord Fauntleroy. "Red" was innimitable in his short black velvet pants, silk blouse, big tie, straw hat, sox, and peppermint stick. All these participants graduated from Jesuit high within the last seven years. Ooh That Kiss! Here s How You Can Get a BSO Degree It may be, fellows, that in a few years you will be receiving a E'. S. O. degree instead of a B. S. Ch. If you're smart and know how to make use of your spare time, you won't have to go to college to get it. Just make use of those Lenten Sunday sofa sessions (parlor dates). We quote this article from the New York World, wherein it is said that osculation is a Bcience. The B. S. O. is a Bachelor of Science in Osculation. "Do I agree with Alfred Fowler, B. A., that there are only eight kinds of kisses, but if you will ask come to years of discretion I had counted' more than eight, although I didn't differentiate them then. I never divided my kisses and tagged them unless the girl's mouth was too large to be taken in as a whole. "Only eight varieties of kisses! Evidently Mr. Fowler does not come from the Fatherland, where osculation is a science and not a satire—or a curiosity. Our German friends could give pointers to this bachelor of arts, for they have a great variety of kisses, thirty appearing in their dictionary. That there may be no gap in the language, the German philogists have earned the everlasting gratitude of lovers by coining the word "nachkussen", which means making up for the kisses which have been missed. Not being proficient in German, I dare not attempt to translate the other twenty-nine kind sof kisses, but if you will ; sk any German lass to teach you ho-".' to graft tulips—the whole thirty varietievarietie—you won't need any dictionary. Definitions have no significance until you learned to spell, and when it comes to osculation most men don't even know A. B. C.'s. If there is a girl handy a man need never go to a dictionary to learn what a kiss is. "The Biblical list of kisses is: approbation, adoration, salutation, valediction, reconciliation, subjection, tfeachery, and affection. "There is the kiss of discovery, when a woman smacks a man's mouth to learn whether he has been drinking. In the Beggar's Opera one of the characters says: 'One may know by your kiss that the gin is excellent.' "The election kiss has played well its part. It is most frequently bestowed by candidates upon babies."There are r.ng kisses, forftit kisses, mistletoe and husking bee kisses—where red ears are as much in demand as red lips; all of which might be grouped under the term 'privileged'. "There's the formal kiss of fash ion, limited to women; the curious kiss of custom which varies in different lands; the Blarney variety, which as a figure of speech isn't so cold and hard as the stone from which it takes its name; the kiss a la Hobson, as a reward of genius or valor; the kiss of respect; the dancing kiss, which is one of the most popular figures with the country devotees of terpsichore; and the platonic kiss, which is very different from, but often leads up to, the kiss passionate." Glee Club To Sing At Student Masses The Loyola Glee club was organized at a meeting held Tuesday noon in Marquette auditorium. It was also decided that the Glee club would remain intact and in the future would sing the hymns it the regular university mass every Friday morning. Regular meetings will be held Thursdays at noon in the choir loft of the university church, and part of the meeting time will be used to re'nearse hymns. It was suggested at the meeting that the University Choral club, of which the Glee club is an integral part, meet on Wednesday night« at 9 o'clock in Conservatory haU. Plans concerning the Choral society remain tentative, pending the consideration of Dr. E. E. Schuyten, director. NEW FRENCH PLAY Plans for the presentation of their next play will be taken up by the members of the French club at their meeting to be held this evening at four o'clock in MarquetUhall.The name of the play chosen will be announced in the very near future, Captain Hensley B. Lacy, director of the club, said. Debate Question Of President's Power The Edward Douglas White Debate society met the Chief Justice O'Niel society last night in a dedate at nine o'clock in Marquette hall. The second team of each society debated the question: Besolved: That the powers of the President of the United States should be substantially increased as a setted policy. Lawrence Babst, George Leppert, and Robert Pascal, representing the Edward Douglas White society, defended the negative side of the question. Prieur Leary, Francis Durell, and Charies Thomas upheld : the affirmative for the Chief Jus-; tice O'Niel society. The results of this debate will j be announced in the next issue. BLUE KEY MEET There will be a very important meeting of the Blue Key, national honor activity fraternity, tomorrow afternoon at 1 o'clock sharp in the student publication office in Marquette hall.

J., head of the department of pihlosophy, will be chairman.When making this announcement, the dean said: "For a long time it has been my desire to se? a presentation of this sort at Loyola. * Many other Jesuit universities, in keeping with the best traditions of Jesuit colleges, have been holding similar public disputation?. The course in philosophy at Loyola Is one of the characteristics of the curriculum offered by the university, and it is fitting that we should have, occasionally at least, such a defense." The defense will be held during the time scheduled for the regular public speaking classes, and all students who wish may attend. The general public is invited. WWL QUARTER HOUR W. K. Hamilton, senior in the college of arts and sciences, conducted the student quarter hour over WWL, the university radio station, last night.

Schilleci, president of the society, announces.A date for regular monthly meetings will be set. These meetings will be featured by a series of lectures to be given by Dr. Gaspar Lugano, U.D. graduate of the Law School of the U. of Pavia. MONEY SYSTEM NEED STRESSED B Y DEAN EDITOR'S NOTE: This is tha first of a series of four articles by the dean of the department of commerce and finance explaining our national monetary system. Modern Dependence Ours is an economic society like that. With the compensation that we get from our productive services we are able to command the productive services of a host of other people, which services usually come to us embodied in consumers' goods. It is mighty few things that we furnish for our selves. By far most of the economic goods that we consume in (lie course of a day come to us as ft result of the functioning of an economic system where goods are continually being produced and passed from hand to hand. It is here that the process of exchange comes in for consideration With goods being produce'l by a division of labor exchange of goods among speciadists is necessary. Through exchange individuals trade their services for the services of others, whether these services be direct 01 embodied in goods. The procedure of offering services is called selling; while that of receiving services is called buying. It is obvious that we are all buyers and sellers simultaneously. Barter Inadequate In a simple economic system thi3 buying and selling procedure is ef fected directly. Goods are exchanged directly for goods. Such direct exchange is called barter. By its nature the practice of bartering is restricted to circumstances where economic relations are simple and direct. This Is true, since barter is feasible only when markets are small, when buyers and sellers meet face to face, when the incidence of exchanges is achieved, and when the limited number of commodities permits a knowledge NECESSITY OF A MONEY SYSTEM By John V. Connor, Ph. D. In a primitive household economy trade and exchange are unknown, since each family is at once its own producer and its own consumer. Here, people live an isolated economic existence. But with the emergence of a division of labor among individuals the system of economic isolation breaks down and in its stead economic interdependence becomes the or der of the day. Individuals become economically dependent in the same degree to which the division of labor makes economic specialists out of them. Thus when people devote their talents and energies trD the performance of one particular kind of work they are rendered 4 v pendent on others in the sense that they must get most of the things they want from others. This idea of mutual economic dependence is descriptive of modern economic society. Biology Club Votes On Its Constitution Vot'ng on the preamble, constitution, and by-laws of the society, the O. L. Potbier society met Wednesday night in Bobet hall. The meeting was characterized by several discussions. New members were admitted and it was decided that the regular meetings in the future would be held on the first and third Mondays of each month. Prominent specialists in the fields of medicine and biology will be asked to address the members at each meeting on special phases of study, it was announced by Gibbs D. Mitchell, recently elected president.
