THE MAROON Number 24 LOYOLA UNIVERSITY, NEW ORLEANS, LA., APRIL 13, 1934 Volume XII ANNUAL SPANISH PLAY TOMORROW "FORTUNATO" WILL MARK TENTH PRESENTATION IN SPANISH CLUB'S HISTORY Samuel McNeely Has Leading Role in Famous Classic By The Quinteros The Loyola Spanish club celebrates its tenth anniversary tomorrow night in Marquette auditorium when it presents "Fortunato," clas- ' sic three-act tragi-comedy by the Quintero Brothers. The certain rises promptly at 8 p. m. The play is directed by Joseph Abraham, Jr., Loyola alumnus who took the leading part in this same play six years ago, and Jessie C. Montejo, head of the Loyola Spanish department. Samuel S. McNeely, junior in the college of arts and sciences, has the leading role of Fortunato the unfortunate. McNeely takes off this character in a manner which at times threatens to bring tears to the eyes of the audience, tempering his acting with the highly humorous dialect for which the Quinteros are famous. The complete cast follows: | Monica Julia Sierra Don Victorio Venancio Garcia Alberto Bertin Barrosse Constanza Brunilda Fransen Fortunato .. Samuel McNeely Gorguera Chester Sclimittz Conchita Margaret Sullivan Un Ciego Irving Dymond Una Modistilla Ann Shannon Un Viejecito John Nugent Inez -Mary Zichichi Amaranta Elena Monasterio A musical program under the direction of Linda de Hinojosa will be presented during the intermissions. Directing the scene work will be John Schilleci, Paul Capdevielle, and Arnaud Lopez. The action of the play is centered in Madrid in the present time. Act I i Tne first act takes place in the I home of Don Alberto, a wealthy To Clarify Students, Attitude On R. O. T. C. STUDENTS EXPRESS VAGUE ATTITUDE; COMPLAINTS TO LEAD TO COUNCIL ACTION Competent Speaker To Give Students Negative Points " To clarify student impression and to answer complaints from students that "the negative side of the R.O.T.C. question was not well presented," the student council continued investigations and announced plans to 'have a competent speaker address the student body in the near future. From the results of the student poll held recently the council de• cided that student impressions were not clear as to the advisability of establishing a military « unit. Charles Bailey, president of the council, explained the decision. "Many of the students voted to establish the unit but did not signify their intention to join if the unit was established. As there is a minimum required for the establishment of the unit, we must have more definite information from the students as to whether will k or will not join." Complaints from several students charged that the presentation of the question a few weeks ago did • not bring out the pertinent issues and left a confused impression in the mind of many of the students. Bailey, in commenting on these complaints, intimated that the inconsistent attitude adopted by many of he students in the poll, could probably be explained by this lack and confusion on the facts of the question. "We believe that these complaints are justified and that the negative side of the question was not well presented. This probably explains • the indecisiveness of the poll," he said. A competent speaker, experienced in student military training, will be selected to address the student body and state the argument against the establishments of such units. Results of the poll have not been announced. The Campus View By E. F. W. V. ... * AUTOMOTIVE WORKERS, 6,000 strong, went back on the job Tuesday morning and somewhat relieved the tension in Detroit. The situation is still grave, as this is only one out of 60 plants involved in the strike. Settlement still has to be made with 25,000 other strikers who have rejected the federal conciliation board's proposals. Had not the 6000 at the Motor Products plant resumed work, 18,000 other workers would have been thrown out of work. Employment is in a bad enough way now without a body of men striking and endangering the jobs of so many others. Workers ought to be united by this depression instead of pulling against each other. America by this time should have learned her lesson in union. JAPAN is now a world-power in every respect. Recently, Commodore Perry's first visit to that coun try to negotiate a commercial treaty was celebrated. That m eighty years ago. In that time, Japan has developed in navigation, inland transportation, commerce, politics, and inventions, until now she is one of the first ranking countries of the world. It seems peculiar that such a little thing as a commercial treaty could open the way for such development and improvement. Be that as it may, it proves that more can be gained by human ingenuity and skill than by warfare and bloodshed, for if Perry had gone there with fire and sword. Japan would still be the backward and reticent nation she was eighty years ago. HOW F. D. ROOSEVELT SOLVED THE PROBLEM , ' EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the fifth and last of a series of articles by the dean of the commerce and finance department explaining our 11 national monetary system. By James V. Connor, Ph. D With Roosevelt the commitment is one of sound controlled inflation; an expansion of currency sufficient to restore prices to the 1926 level in order to ease the debt paying. As to the methods of inflating, the President secured from Congress broad permissive powers, as incorporated in an amendment to the agricultural bill. Such powers of inflation are seen in the following permissive grants to the President: 1) To issue $3,000,000.- 000 of government currency, 2) To direct a $3,000,000,000. Issue of Federal Reserve Notes based on • government bonus, 3) to coin silver bullion. 4) To accept 200 million of silver for foreign debts, and 5) To change the metallic content of the gold dollar. These „ powers, coupled with industrial and banking control, give to Roosevelt greater powers of inflation than ever before granted to any single executive. With such he could print enough paper money to drive the prices up over night. But such is not his design. He wants not loose financing but rather sound financing, hand in hand with industrial recovery. It is his idea that government inflation alone would ,be dangerous. It must be coupled with public works, expansion of markets, swelling of bank deposits, increased employment, crop reductions, and the like. Employment Essential Behind Roosevelt controlled inflation is a sound knowledge of our economic ills. He knows that mass purchasing power must be revived, and that such can only come from widespread employment. He knows that credit volume must be increased, and that such can only come from increased bank deposits resulting from business borrowings. He knows further that business men will not borrow for productive purposes unless there is some hope of selling goods. And he is aware of many other features of Debaters Close Season With Spring Hill Team To Be Chosen From Six Varsity Men; Meet Tomorrow Closing the most successful intercollegiate debate season In the history of the university, the varsity of the Edward Douglas White society will meet Spring Hill college in a return engagement tomorrow afternoon at 3 o'clock in Marquette auditorium.
