THE MAROON Number 21 LOYOLA UNIVERSITY, NEW ORLEANS, LA., MARCH 16. 1934 Volume XII The Campus View By E. F. w KIDNAPING took a severe lefthook to the chin a few days ago. Mrs. Nellie Tipton Mueneh, wife of Dr. Ludwig O. Mueneh, and four men were indicted at surburban Clayton on a charge of kidnaping Dr. I. D. Kelley for ransom April 20, 1931; Charles "Ice Wagon" Connors, long hunted as one cf the kidnapers of John Factor, was ■ found shot to death in a remote section of Chicago; and Basil Hugh "The Owl" Bangiiart was . convicted of a part in the Factor kidnaping and sentenced to 99 years in prison. The arm of the law seems to be tightening around the kidnapers' throats. More power to the arm! THE HANGING of his daughter's three negro assailants was denied Clyde Collins when the Mississippi House of Representatives ju* diciary committee killed the "hangman" bill. Representative Walter Sillers, chairman of the committee, * declared he was "opposed to legalized butchery, no matter vho favors it. It's not civilized". We agrte, it is not civilized. If men are to be hanged, let it be done by the officers of the law. Why introduce legislation just so one man, and others to follow him, can take personal revenge on their offenders? The act was atrocious, we admit, » but it did not warrant the passage of such a bill. * RECENTLY, a "party" was staged in (he Milwaukee house of correction where one of the women convicts danced completely disrobed for the entertainment of the guests, and half of the prisoners drank excessively and used narcotic drugs. A house of correction is supposedly a place to break criminal habits, but with such demonstrations as this there is little hope for the betterment of society and the curbing of crime in the United States. Our law-enforcers * seem to need an enforcing law. Will Debate Memphis Team On President Zinser, Lozes On Affirmative Tomorrow Night The Edward Douglas White Debating society will engage representatives from Southwestern university of Memphis in their third inter-collegiate debate tomorrow night at eight o'clock in Marquette auditorium. Felicien Lozes and Leo Zinser, members of Loyola's first varsity team, will uphold the affirmative of the question: "Resolved: That the powers of the President of the United States should be increased as a settled policy." This is the first debate this year that finds the highest-rating debaters in the university on the same side. The team from Memphis will arrive tomorrow morning and be extended a 24-hour visit by the society.In a no-decision contest Wednesday night in Marquette auditorium, the Edward Douglas White society debated a team from Mississippi State College for Women. Loyola was represented by Lawrence Babst and George Leppert, members of the second varsity debating team. The representatives from Mississippi who defended the negative side of the national debate question, were Mary Elizabeth Fite and Fannie Sanders. Tne Edward Douglas White society has just begun its extensive debating schedule that has been planned by William K. Hamilton and Captain Hensley Lacy, president and director of the society respectively. After meeting a team from Washington university on March 20, the Edward Douglas White debaters will make a trip to Gainesville to engage the University of Florida on March 26. Two other varsity debates have been definitely scheduled for next month with another tentatively arranged. The only freshman debate left on the schedule is a return encounter with Louisiana college in Pineville on April 9. " Cats Make Monkeys Out Of Students; Get Their Goats "Sittin' On a Back Yard Fence" —two lonely students watching and waiting. No, they weren't drinking and they're not crazy. Merely biology students, that's all. But why sit on a fence in the dead of night, when it's so warm under those quilts and blankets? "Well, you see, it's this way" • they tell us, "We're biology students in our second year, and at present we are dissecting." • Now we understand. What sort of animals suitable for dissecting purposes can be caught atoip a wooden fence? Why, cats of course, the plain old alley variety. It is true that cats are provided the students for their work in the laboratory by the university, but these two students thought it would be much more fun and much more exciting if they could catch their own cats. Just by way of being versatile. So with this noble thought in mind, they fared forth the other night in search of real excitement. Up and down the al. leys they prowled, walking stealthily for fear their footsteps would betray their presence and their precious quarry escape. Bare' handed and unarmed, these gallant adventurers strode forth to the hunt. It 'required patience, this work. An hour slips away into eternity and still no enemy in • sight. Then around an unusually dark corner they spot two flashes of light an inch apart. Then two more. "There they go", the cry is raised. The chase is on. Up street and down street, in alleys and out of alleys, through the park and around the park, up fences and over fences—still their prey eludes them. But they have the scent, and these soldiers of fortune are indomitable. They will not give up. What a racket they make! Shouts from upper story windows to "stop that infernal nonsense" fall on deaf ears, the warning shout of a cop stops them not. They will do all for the glory of science. A cat they must have and a cat they will have. What's a cop and a few disturbed neighbors, compared to an irate prof.? The thought gives impetus to their flying feet. Darn, but these cats can run. "I can't m-m-make (puff-puff) it, p-p-pal", sobs one. "(Puff-puff) Su-su-sure ya can, y-y-ya big (puff-puff) ape. You gotta", admonishes the other. And away they go again. Up a tree the two playful tommies dash with our heroes in hot pursuit. Now they got 'em where they want 'em. Up they go to the very top. Scratches, hisses, moans, grunts, curses, meows, shrieks, and then silence. Down come the conquering heroes each with a cat nestling under his arm. It was a tough fight, but no cat can make a monkey of them, not when they're bats enough to try and catch one. MOST POPULAR Hugh Jones, and Nell De Laune, were the two students chosen as Most Popular in the recent night school popularity contest. Most Popular Students Interviewed On "Charms" Hugh Jones Shows Surprise; Tells Life Story Hugh Jones, our genial fellow Loyolan, who is street car motorman-ing himself to a law degree, was tackled on the subject of his being recently elected most popular night school laddie. "Why? How?" he was asked. "Is it the color of your hair, the twinkle in your eye, or do you eat spinach?"A stony expression came into his dark eyes and the questioner trembled visibly. Hugh is a big fellow and have you noticed the shade of his hair? But after a moment his lips parted in a harmless smile. "I think it's duff," he said, a la Leon Belasco. "Oh, you wear out transformers, too," was the bright remark, letting it go at that. But the question had been ga-ga. Anyone who knows him realizes Hugh is a swell fellow. And we don't mean gastronomically speaking. "How do I feel about having been elected?" Hugh repeated. "Why I feel flattered and honored that I won the popularity election. I had no idea I would win. I wasn't even in the finals; didn't know I had a chance until Sunday night when I was told Billy Cahill had dropped out. So it was a surprise, after all." Hugh explained that this was the first contest of the sort he had won. But then it's the only one he ever entered. So he's batting 1000. And it's safe enough to predict that Hugh will go on winning honors. Being secretary of the Alpha Pi fraternity and corresponding secretary of the Chief Justice Nell DeLaune Reluctant To Give History Nell DeLaune, winsome winner of the title Most Popular Co-ed in the recent popularity contest, may have the requisite charm and personality, but we are afraid she will never make Hollywood. Why? She spurns publicity! In an interview, which was more like a tooth-pulling session In the dental clinic, she confessed that she had been born. Where? Well, Jeanerette, Louisiana, if you must know. Ah-ha! Educated? Well, of course! SaCred Heart academy. Normal school, and the school at Grand Coteau. Now we are getting somewhere. Then by stealth and threat and subtle persuasion we glean thT fact that Nell has been with us at Loyola for three years, working for her Ph. 8., that her present subjects are philosophy, history, and English, of which the last is her favorite; and that she spurned the ancient and honorable profession of teaching, to take her place in the world of business, in the offices of the Greyhound Lines . Her host of friends at Loyola and elsewhere will testify to the deservedness of the honor conferred on her in the results from the 1934 popularity contest. NOVENA TO ST. FRANCIS ENDED TUESDAY With the regular novena services at Holy Name church the novena to St. Francis Xavier at Loyola came to a close Tuesday noon. The novena prayers before the relic of St .Francis were conducted through its nine days by Fr. Ronald A. Mac Donald, S. J., regent of the college of arts and sciences.

O. T. C. Military unit and the debate of Wednesday night with the Mississippi State College for Women.

Philosophy Student Answers Objections Before a big audience including members of the philosophy classes at Ursuline and Dominican colleges and the general public, members of the Loyola university epistemology class defended theses in philosophy. The defense was conducted in syllogistic form. The three objectors—Stephen Rodi, Harold Deßlanc, and Richard Voelker— arose in order and proposed various difficulties to the defender. Earl Wegmann, acting as defender, answered their objections in turn. Chairman for the defense was Rev. Martin Burke, S. J. This is the first time such a presentation of scholastic philosophy has taken place at Loyola. A similar defense, probably of ethics, is being planned for next year by Rev. James A. Greeley, S. J., arts and science dean.

Plans for installing an ROTC military unit at Loyola were brought up and discussed at the recent meeting of the student council, according to an annuoncement by Charles Bailey, president of the council. The plan has faculty approval, but before steps toward execution are undertaken, the idea will be put to a university vote, to find out definitely whether the students want such a thing or not. By putting it to popular vote, it can be more easily determined whether the plan is agreeable to the students or not, Bailey states. Prior to the voting, the question will be publicly debated by teams chosen from the Edward Douglas White Debate society. These teams will discuss the question pro and COD in order to give the students both sides and thus help them in their voting. The two teams will be composed of two members each, who will be chosen at the next meeting of the society Monday night. No. tentative date has been set for the debate, but it is believed that it will take place within a week or so. Some time after the debate the balloting on the question will be held. Plans are being forwarded to have a number of military officers address the student body on the advisability of such a move.
