MARQUETTE LADIES MONTHLY MEETING Ftaved Walk Between Marquette and Bobet Halls Voted; Grading of Grounds to Be Resumed. On Tuesday afternonn, March 3, the Ladies Auxiliary Marquette Association met at Loyola for the regular monthly meeting. The president, Miss L. Dclßondio, who was absent from the February meeting because of illness, presided. After the meeting was called to order, Father Giglio, acting as temporary chaplain opened proceeding with a prayer. The secretary, Mrs. J. D. Bloom read the minutes of the February meeting, which were approved. This was followed in order by the report of the financial secretary. Miss Alice I.eckert. and of the treasurer, Mi-,s Mary Walsh. Both reports were approved. The standing committees were next called upon for their reports. The chairman of the committee on grounds. Mrs. 1.. A. Jones spoke forcefully on the urgent need for a paved walk between Marquette and Bobet Halls. The paved walk which at present runs to the Burke Memorial is in a bad state of disrepair, and is. moreover, inadequate. It stops at the Burke Memorial, failing to reach the entrance to Bobet Hall. The great number of students passing from Marquette to Bobet Hall for Pharmacy and Dental lectures and laboratories, makes the need of a suitable paved walk imperative. The Ladies voted unanimously that Mrs. L. A. Jones proceed with the work. Father Giglio informed the meeting that he would have the city redeem its promise to send a tractor and grading i machine to complete the levelling of the grounds around Bobet Hall. The secretary announced that there were still some copies of Fr. Biever's book unsold and called upon the members to aid in their sale. The April meeting of the Association \ will be held. Tuesday. April 7. LOYOLA GYM TO BE SCENE OF PAGEANT Parochial School Children to Participate. In the Loyola gymnasium, on Easter Sunday, at ,i 1,. M.. the Catholic schools schools of New Orleans will give a pageant. The color scheme and the setting of the pageant will be based on the Crusade period of Catholic history.Easter Sunday was selected for the date of the pageant for the obvious reason that the ceremony on such an occasion will be an impressive and inspiring one. The title given the pageant, "Easter Awakening." is for this reason an appropriate one. Some three or four thousand children from all the parochial schools in the city will participate in the event. The larger schools will furnish the material for the nucleus of some ten numbers while the smaller schools will have about three thousand children taking part in a monster chorus. The period of the Crusades, and especially the Children's Crusade, will be depicted. This era of so much religious fervor should furnish an interesting text. Certainly, never in the world's history has there been such a show of devotion to the Almighty as these little innocent hearts effected. A tableau representing the Church and the Nations will form the setting for at least one of the numbers. The Loyola Band will accompany the choral singing as well as present one "i' two numbers. BEGGARS BANQUET AFTER INITIATION Messrs. Gaudin, Egan and Kernaghan Formally Received. At a banquet held at the La Louisiana Restaurant, the Beggars Fraternity formally received its three pledges, the Messrs. William Kernaghan, Hilary Gaudin and Joseph Egan, as members.

Mr. Harry Kinsella, the toastmaster for the occasion, gave the new members a brief talk on the commendable manner in which they had conducted themselves during their pledgeship and then called upon Mr. Kmile Rive, who heartily welcomed them and expressed the high hopes which the Beggars held for them in the future. Mr. P. A. Gaudet then impressed upon the new men the relation which the fraternity held with Loyola and exhorted them to ever be ready to sacrifice themselves for a "Greater Loyola." Mr. Henry O'Connor followed with short talk on the meaning of being a Beggar and was succeeded by Mr. Gardere Moore who noted the progress of the fraternity since the day when he, the founder, had first assembled ten students of the university with the purpose of organizing a fraternity. Mr. Price Crane then instructed them on the feeling they should have for one another and for the other members. Speeches by the new members then concluded the program.

Much interest has been shown by the night students in forming a Law Section of the Sodality of the Blessed LOYOLA U. BAND MAKES SURPRISING ADVANCEMENT Will Render a Special Program to Be Broadcasted By Radio Station WWL. The co-operation which the students have given the music professor Mr. Cupero and the faculty advisor of the baud. Rev. Father Francis, is finally producing some remarkable effects. The strides with which the Loyola Hand is advancing towards perfection is most perceivable, in fact, pushes itself forward for the notice of those who have not been especially interested in the activities of this College Organization.Those members of the band who were novices at the beginning of this year are becoming seasoned veterans and are now playing instruments far more difficult than those with which they began, and other students by hard work are filling their place--. The baud long since has graduated from the playing of those simple tunes and marches which were their first attempts, and is now playing with seeming ease selections wheih are far more interesting and catchy, not to say rather difficult. The time has gone forever when the learning of a new selection meant continual repetition, private coaching, and the same tune dinning in one's ears till the monotony nearly drove one crazy.

He was then given a unanimous vote of thanks by the members. The new president. Mr. Rubenstein, then took the chair, and gratefully acknowledged the honor confided in him, promising that he would do all in his power to make a "Greater Law Debating Society for a Greater Loyola."A special meeting wa.s held on Monday.

It was also decided that the meetings were to be held on every third Sunday. after a general communion at the 8 o'clock Mass. and on every first Monday night at 9 o'clock. The object of the Sodality will be to discuss objections that are continually being raised to Catholic doctrines. This will be most interesting as at every meeting one member will be appointed to uphold and defend the Catholic viewpoint, while another will uphold the contrary view. This will serve to a two-fold advantage, in first instructing the members as to why we as Catholics hold a certain doctrine and in fitting him to answer the difficulties that are continually being asked for him to explain, and will also provide much interest at the meetings.
