WILLIAM HAMILTON, senior arts and science and holder of Most Popular title, has been selected as Maeter of Ceremonies for the first Spring Floor Show at the ?ym dance next Friday. The Campus View By E. F. W "SLIPPERY JOHN" DiUinjti'! has again caused the authorities a few sleepless nisdits and hours of anxiety and worry- lle Ulti about * the country much In the Mune manner as a bee in I flower garden and apparently with just as , much freedom. Either Dillinger is too smart for our government agents, or through longer practice has developed a strangely perfect "tec'nnique" for eluding capture. At any rate, the department of justice officials are up a tree. Dillinger just blows in, kills a few people, liberates hi.i pala, and is off again to new fields of endeavor. But since President Roosevelt lias stepped into the ring we might get some results. He wa3 * terribly upset by the news the other day. and immediately urged Congress to enact legislation giving the federal government more control and more Jurisdiction over gangster activities. He pulled the nation out of a gigantic hole and the public can feel sure that ho. will be able to catch a one-man wrecking crew. THE ROSE BOWL New Years day classic will soon have a rival. * At least we hope so. The New Orleans Mid-Winter Sports Association has completed its drive for $30,000 by topping that amount $2,700 worth. The money is to bo used for sponsoring a "Sugar Bowl" football game here on this coming New Year's day. The citizens of New Orleans have shown a wonderful spirit in their support of the project, and, in our estimation, its realization will be a splendid thing for the city. There is no reason why New Orleans, na» tiontlly known as America's Most Interesting City, should not have such a classic. If such enthusiasm is manifested in the mere prospect of the occasion, we can rest assured that the same enthusiasm will prevail when the goal is realized. This is a city of sport-loving fans, and there is no doubt but that the game will add prestige to the eity. Congratulations to the association! MANIAS are manifested every day in every par: of the nation, but some people in New Orleans to have developed a mania for the enforcement of silly laws • that were enacted years ago, and of which the police force has little or no knowledge. We are speaking of the recent war on ladies' hat pins. The N. O. Federation of Clubs requested the police force a few days ago to enforce the Louisiana statute of 1914 which stipulate:* that all hat pins are to he worn with I shield or a guard to preventNew Constitution For Circolo Club The newly formulated constitution of the Circolo Universitario Italiano was ratified at the hi" monthly meeting of '.he club Wednesday evening in Marquetie auditorium.

IS COUNCIL DECISION; NEW PLAN OUTLINED TO STUDENTS Weakness of poll given as reason of action. Erskine urges training in fundamentals of sports The installation of an R. 0. T. ('. military unit at the university has been definitely abandoned, and Q course in physical education submi'ted in its place by a student council decision at its last meeting, Charles 11. Bailey, president of the council, announced. "The proposal of an R. O. T. ('. unit was rejected because of the weakness of the student poll taken shortly after the Blaster holidays.' Bailey stated. 'Over 400 ballots were cast," he said, "and out of hese only 154 signified their intention to join. After eliminating all the votes cast by the seniors and the men who intend to enter the professional schools of law ami dentistry, there were only 105 left who could join the unit. This was not enough to warrant its installation as 100 applications are needed to install a unit." Proposed Plan At a meeting of the student body held last Friday in the auditoritin, Coach Robert H. (Doc) Erskine proposed a plan for a course in physical education to take the place of the military unit. The plan: One year iDl compulsory physical education, to be taken pfeferably in the freshman iitiir. Its continuance during the rest of the college course irill be voluntary. This one year, however, will be retiuisite for a degree. The course will consist in Instructions in athletic* and the sport fundamentals, culiDl nullimi in intramural competition to enable the students to put into practice what tin n have learned. This proposed plan has faculty approval and will probably go into effect at the beginning of the next school term. Bailey stated. LE PERE ABBE in tribute to Father Biever He's an old, old man with white, white hair .;//C/ he's spent his life in that garden there Clearing the weeds and turning the soil With never the thought of a zcage for his toil; Hut bending more and more each spring.
