THE MAROON Nuipber 28 LOYOLA UNIVERSITY, NEW ORLEANS, LA., MAY 11, 1934 Volume XU The Campus View By E. F. W. THE WAR between t'ne radio broadcasting stations and the daily newspapers, which has been smoldering for some time, has finally been declared in earnest. Recently the newspapers refused to print the radio schedules unless they were paid for, so the broadcasting stations uuit having them printed. We are inclined to agree with the radio people. As shown in their case, all other leading newspapers in the larger American cities print the schedules as a service to their readers and do not consider it as advertising. The schedules do not urge the people to patronize any one concern, or buy any one product; they merely present to the people the time their favorite programs will come over the air. It seems that the objection of the newspapers is that the radio hurts their own advertising, but we do not see how refusing to print the schedules will alter that fact. Regardless of whether or not the papers print the schedules, the programs will come on just the same, and the people will listen to them just the same. So what is the sense of taking a step that is totally ineffective? » • • REWARD to the deserving. When the Pulitzer prize winners were announced the other day by the Columbia university trustees, Meigs O. Frost, reporter for the Times-Picayune and New Orlenas States, received honorable mention for excellence in reporting. Just look at his record. He has been a reporter since 1908 on the New York Times, the Dallas News, the Galveston News, the New Orleans Item, the New Orleans States and the Times-Picayune. His assignments have taken him into 42 of the 48 states, into Canada, Alaska, Hawaii, Cuba, Mexico, and every republic of Central America. He has covered seven Latin-American revolutions, and he has covered every field of reporting from floods to politics and back again. He has interviewed every president of the United States from Theodore Roosevelt through Herbert Hoover, every president of Mexico from Porfirio Diaz through Ortiz Rubio. many Central American presidents and other military-political leaders. He has flown 49,000 miles. He has written and had published more than 200 short stories and three Activity Awards For Campus Groups Planned A list of recommendations for awards to the students and campus organisation! has been submitted to the faculty for approval, according to an announcement by Charles H.

Ronald A. Mac Donald, S. J., regent of the college of arts and sciences. If the awards meet with the approval of the faculty, It will mark their return after an absence of one year. "We have been trying for a long time," Bailey stated, "to again give the active students on the campus a reward for their extra-curricular work, and from all indications it appears as if we shall be successful."The presentation of the awards will probably take place at the Baccalaureate exercises, Sunday, June Spanish Group To Present Program For Jesuit Fund Including on its program some of the most popular Spanish literary and musical productions, an entertainment for the benefit of the Jesuit Seminary Fund will be given in Marquette auditorium Monday night, May 14, under the direction of Senora Linda Hinojosa.The first part of the program will include an arrangement of the lyric-drama by Jose de Larra, titled "La Trapera," a play with action centered in Madrid.

Billy Roy established a meet record in the pole vault by successfully boosting himself over the bar at 13 feet and 1 inch. On the next try, Bill came close to establishing a 13 feet 7 inch mark.

As he was nearing the finish, Heard of Louisiana Normal, staged a great comeback and pressed close. Loisel "heard him coming" according to spectators and ran "like a scared rabbit" to cross the finish line first with the time of 4:39.1. yrf Matt Ballatin in/ttie discus and shot put, looked like a sure winner with good early heaves, but was nosed out twice; in the discus by Bickham of S.

Alumni Continue Membership Drive The drive for new members for the Loyola Alumni association got under way last week and this week committees are reporting marked progress In the campaign to sign up all graduates of Loyola in the years 1928 to 1888 living in New Orleans. In proposing membership in the association the committees are offering three inducements. The first is a trust fund which the association is sponsoring and by means of which it will be possible to finance t'ne education of worthy students who may find it impossible to secure a college education. Twenty-five per cent of the gross collections made by the association is set aside in this trust fund and it is expected that in time the money will amount to quite an imposing sum. Secondly, the Central News and I'hoto Service of St. Louis, Mo., field representatives of alumni associations throughout the country, have offered to take pictures of all graduates designated by the alumni association of any university free of charge. In other words, these pictures will be taken without cost to either the graduates or the association, and a picture of each graduate will be sent to the association's headquarters to be kept on file and sent out in press notices and the like. The third inducement Is the publication of an alumni news periodical when the size of the association is large enough to justify it. , Charles Murphy, chairman of the membership drive, announced this week that he is well satisfied with the progress being made by his coworkers."La Dame de Bronze" An added touch to the foreign flavour of the French plays is the appearance of Miss Brunllda Franscn as "La Dame de Bronze." Miss Fransen was born in Antwerp, Belgium and has seen French comedies in the original when studying in Paris. At present she is a special student in Bacteriology here at Loyola.
