Their latest interest is in the band concret which is to be presented this coming Saturday night at 8:15 in Holy Name school auditorium. They have worked long and hard on this coming event, feeling that the concert is important because it Is the first one given this year, and because the members of the band deserve a chance to display their talents and take an integral part in school activities. The society is governed by a board of directors who appoint committees as the occasions demand for the execution of various projects to be undertaken. This beard is headed by a chair- Miss Fannie Sanders, left, and Miss Mary Elizabeth Fite make up the Mississippi State College for Women debate team that meets Loyola Wednesday night.

McCann and Milton Mc- j Govern defeated Steve Rodi and J Tom Dunn in a debate. The sec- l ond event ended in a draw, when | the rope snapped in the tug-of-war. j The same freshman team of speak- C ers won an oratorical contest to gain the second victory. ! The Hausmann Trophy has been won three times by each class in the past. This victory, however, makes the score one up for the freshmen. CIRCOLO PARTY COMING The Circolo Universitario Ital- 1 iano will entertain at a benefit card 1 and lotto party to be given on Fri- 1 day, March 23. Jacob Amato, chairman of the entertainment c committee, will be assisted in pre- 8 parations for the party by Alfred J. Bonomo, Jr., Charles E. Cabibi, f A. J. Santaangelo and Samuel J. i Fontano. a New Committee Will Present First Lent Gym Dance Snnday After a few weeks of Lent, the quiet and inactivity began to hang heavy on the hands of the students, so the gym dance committee got together and decided to liven I things up a bit. The first thing to do was to see Professor Cupero and get the services of the band. That was easy. Then they got the gym. So with the idea, the band, and the gym, the natural result was a gym dance—or rather will be a gym dance. On this Sunday afternoon from 4 until 8 all students and friends of the university will dance to the music of the Loyola orchestra and make hay while the sun shines. It promises to be a whiz-bang start for the year 1934. It is not often that the dance committe plans a tea dance; in fact, such a thing occurs only once a year, and that i is during Lent. Last year the tea i dance was held on St. Joseph's i day, because that happened to fall on a Sunday. This year the boys i are stealing a march on the feast day and giving their annual day- [ light struggle eight days in ad- j vance. I There was quite a shake-up the past week in the list of members on the committee. J. Skelly Wright retained his position as chairman, as did M. V. Jarreau as treasurer. Following are the names of the new committeemen. Tickets may be bought from any of these: John Blasi, Charles Bailey, Thomas Dunn, William K. Hamilton, Pred Gisevius, Fffster Bosworth, Abram Diaz, Walter Diaz, Guy Knobloch, Jr., Stephen B. j Rodi, Irvin Timmerick, Earl Smith, Richard Wright, Marion Loisel, K. j Lagarde, and E. Haggerty. "Sales are going well," Jarreau states, "and there promises to be a big turn-out. Students can be assured of a good time if they only come, because the committee is working hard to make this event a big success."

Schwartz Recalls Loyola Only Prairie Remembering when there was j nothing hut a prairie where Lo- J yola now stands and how the big j dray trucks used to rumble over | the cobblestones as they passed him on his way to market, Brother Bernard Schwartz, S. J., celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of his entrance into the Society of Jesus tomorrow, told a Maroon reporter the story of his half cen| tury stay in New Orleans and j other houses of the society in j what was then the Southern Mis| sion of the Jesuit order. Coming to New Orleans in 1885, Brother Schwartz served as assistant to Brother Ignatius, as ■ doorman at the Jesuit house on Baronne street and later as secretary to Father Butler. It became | known that he was the only shoemaker in the southern mission and so he was sent to teach novice brothers the craft at Macon, Georgia.. In 1891 he went to Springhill and stayed there until 1901 when j Ihe was sent back to Louisiana, j j this time to Grand Coteau. Again in Louisiana Grand Coteau was then a reguj lar boarding school, incorporated under the title of St. Charles college and was attended by scions of many of the most prominent families in Louisiana. As Infirmarian there for 17 years, he became an Thespian Semester Try-Outs Shortly Semester tryouts for admission to the Thespians will be held Tuesday night at 8 o'clock in Marquette auditorium, according to an announcement by John D. Schilleci, president of the society. "Students of the day and night classes of Loyola as well as students of Ursuline college may secure application blanks in the office of Rev. R. A. Mac Donald," says Schilleci. "The preparation of a two minute dramatic selec(tion is the only other requisite." A. P. Schiro 111, John D. Schilleci, Edward Driscoll, Samuel Mc- Neely, Jr., and Paul Capdevielle will serve on the committee for admittance of new members. John H. Daspit, night school, has been recently appointed Thes| pian technician. Name Committee To Plan Experiments Electrolytic separation of metals and the preparation of chlorine by the electrolysis of sodium chloride was demonstrated by Lloyd Salathe and Josph Wegmann, senior students, at the regular bi-weekly meeting of the chemistry club last weelc. Salathe, president of the club, announced that at the next meeting Thursday, March 15, two more seniors, Charles Qarstens and Charles Roccaforte, will show their theses experiments. Carstens will demonstrate the determination of concentration of acids and bases, and Roccaforte will show the destructive distillation of wood. At the conclusion of the meeting, a committee composed of representatives of each class was appointed lor the purpose of formulating plans for group experiments to be presented sometime in the near future, either in Marquette auditorium or in one of the chemistry lecture rooms. These experiments are to be of such nature as would interest the ordinary layman who has only a general knowledge of chemistry, and visitors will be welcome. President's Office Undergoes Change The office of Father John W. Hynes, S. J., president of the university, has taken on a new appearance within the last week or so. It has been extended to include the old office of Father Hayes, S. J„ recent spiritual director, and the old book store has been remodeled into a waiting room. The floors have been refinished and shellacked until now they glisten and shine in competition with the veneer of the new office furniture and fixtures. New draperies have been put in, and the entire room is most appropriately decorated with pictures and plaques.
