THE MAROON LOYOLA UNIVERSITY, NEW ORLEANS, LA., MAY 18, 1934 Number 2& 2 Volume XII The Campus View Hy E. F. W. NATIONAL Clean-up Week seems to be the title for this week insofar as crime is concerned. Little June Robles, 6, has been found and " returned to her parents. Her kidnapers evidently got the well known "cold feet," because they • wrote a letter of directions telling how to find her. The law hasn't been able to get its hands on them yet, but most probably by the time you read this they will be in jail. The William F. Gettle kidnap case was satisfactorily solved when three confessed and they were sentenced to life in San Quentin. It will be noted that both of the victims were returned alive without the payment of the ransom demanded. Wednesday George Dallao i and John Capaci were removed to ■ the Gretna jail to await their execution this afternoon. These two men robbed and killed Charles Rabito last year. Kenneth Neu, also in the condemned row, and popularly known as the "Sabbath Slayer," sang them his farewell as they left. All in all, Uncle Sam and his helpers have done a pretty good job. Dillinger is the only outstanding gangster retaining his freedom, but he seems to be just a little bit too big a piece of dirt • to get into the vacuum cleaner of peace and order. EMERGENCIES call for quickwittedness and level-headed thinking, and when both of these are not present tragic results accrue. Take, for instance, what happened over in France this week. There was an automobile race going on and a dog dashed upon the speedway. The spectators waved to the driver to warn him, and he saw the animal in time. He swerved to keep from killing the dog and in so doing lost control of the car. It i hurtled into a mass of spectators and killed eight and injured five. But the dog was unharmed. Thirteen people against a dog and the dog won—all because the driver was tender-hearted and not levelheaded.Second Week of Music Recital Starts Monday Featured by graduate recitals by Yvonne Thomac and Eileen Mac- Kinnon, the Loyola college of music • enters the second week of its endof-the-year program Monday. Miss Thomas will present her recital in Conservatory liall Monday evening and will be assisted in one or two numbers by Miss MacKinnon and Lucille Springer. Miss MacKinnon holds her final scholastic recital Tuesday evening at the same place accompanied by Inez Becknell on the piano. On Wednesday evening a student recital including Marion Clade, Vivian Ballard, and Anna Giuffria will be held at the conservatory. POTHIERS SEE WATER PURIFIED « Members of the O. L. Pothier so ciety for biology students visite( the New Orleans Water Purifica tlon plant Thursday morning.

Lcppcrt I' "\ French Club Plays Featured By Awards and Excellent Acting Featured by the presentation of an award from the French government to two students for excellence in the French language, the second annual presentation of the French club pleased a fair crowd of play-goers Friday night in the Holy Name auditorium, when three one-act plays were staged by members of the club. Albert Dupuy won the first award and Robert Pascal the second. The award was made by the French vice-consul. The performance of Edward Seghers in the comedy "Un Arriviste" was especially noteworthy, as he took the part only seven days before the presentation and easily led the other dramatic aspirants in genuine acting ability, showing up well as the harassed French doctor treating the "ills" of his patients. He carried off most of the situations with great success and counteracted the distracting impressions produced by his few slips of memory. Brunilda Fransen and Joseph Lepper, taking the leads respectively in "La Dame de Bronze" and "Poil de Carotte", were just slightly beneath Seghers as far as the results of their efforts go, and for two different reasons. The parts in "Le Dame de B'ronze" were evenly distributed and Miss Fransen carried a role which did not impress the audience with its importance. However, she produced the two or three striking effects which ,to all reports, rendered this first offering of the evening the most popular on the program. The third, last, and only serious play of the evening "Poil de Caroite", offered more in the way of deep emotion, and it is probably for this reason that it did not meet the popular fancy. The role of the "Poil de Carotte", taken by Joseph Leppert, was that of an unwanted child, misunderstood by his mother and ignored by his father. The play brings out the pathos of such a situation, and Leppert, suited perfectly to the part, merits much praise for his attempts to achieve just that. John Schilleci, showing the value of past experience, succeeded well in picking up the halting and almost dragging action that was relieved only by the few periodic outbursts 'from Sdlange Mille, the mother in the play. John Kron, Lucien Delery, and Robert Pascal, taking the "speechy" parts in "La Dame de Bronze," presented their atmosphere parts to such perfection—barring a little faulty accentuation, according to experts on the subject—that they are almost forgotten in a mental review of the plays. They are taken for granted and would attract attention only by not achieving results. The same can be said of Yvonne Galatoire, Julian Michel, Louise de Tarnowsky and Cyril Broussard, for the combination of good coaching by Captain H. L. Lacy, director of the club, the sincere efforts of every member of the cast, and Installation of New Members Features Last Council Meet Inducting new members into office, the student council met Tuesday for its last official gathering of the year. Another meet ing will be called only in case some business arises which, demands immediate action. The new members taking the oath of office were: Irvin Timmrick, sophomore arts and sciences; Robert Hollier, Junior pharmacy; Albert Guedry, sophomore pharmacy; Louise de Tarnowsky, junior music; Florence Chauvin, sophomore music. Plans were also discussed concerning a Times-Picayune award to be presented to the member of The Maroon staff doing the most outstanding work each year. PARENT TEACHER PARTY The Parent Teacher association of the Loyola college of music held a bridge and lotto party at the Monteleone Hotel, Saturday afternoon May 12, for the benefit of the Student Loan funds. A fair crowd attended.
