Officer Mistakes Law School Student for Chicago Gangster Imagine yourself walking along Canal street minding your own business and then being startled by a command to halt in the name of the law. That's what happened to a young student in the School of Law. , "Hey! Stop!" was the command 1 given to Bob Camors as he was peacefully making his way along the main downtown thoroughfare. 1 Bob didn't recognize the voice nor C the face and so continued about his business. The man who had hailed him 1 quickened his pace and caught up to the young student whom he | seized by the shoulder. I "What do you want?" Camors inquired in a curious manner. ; "You look like a thug from Chi- C cago. You're under arrest," was 1 the reply as the plainclothes man C flourished his badge. Quickly an i fficer on the 'beat' came to the assistance of the apprehending law. "You've got me wrong, cap. I'm not from Chicago and I can identify myself." Bob asserted. With this he showed his identification card adding that he was a student of the Loyola school of law. The officer then released Camors. But before leaving, the freshman's legal mind refreshed the plainclothes man upon a point of law. "This is false arrest and you are violating the privilege of a citizen in doing this." After this timely admonition to the officer Camors went on down the street. Camors has transferred from Sewanee university to Loyola in order that he might enter the legal profession. While at Sewanee, Camors was selected as a member of the resident chapter of Blue Key, national honor fraternity. I Walter Winchell Is Dynamic Person, Says Erstwhile Maroon Night Editor Personality Exceeds Appeal of His Writing (Editor's Note: Miss Reynolds former night editor of The Maroon, who is employed by the Will Rogers Memorial and living in New York City, writes this interview with Walter Winchell, famous Broadway columnist, at the special request of the office. We submit h,er impressions of the well-known key-holer.) By Miss Marie Louise Reynolds (Special to the Loyola Maroon) New York, Oct. 23.—Walter Winchell is dynamic. That's the only way to describe this man who has made Americans conscious of America. Winchell, whose column bares the innermost secrets of a nation, has a personality that exceeds the appeal of his writings. Neatly dressed in a dark blue suit, light blue shirt, dark tie and grey felt hat, his favorite attire, the columnist ushered me into Lis office, and greeted me with: ' "Hello, just make yourself comfortable. You'll get the story while I do MY work." His office, which is a long narrow room, is equipped with two desks, his own and his one assistant's, two telephones, a row of filing cabinets. An electric system, connecting a buzzer on his desk to the doors, admits visitors. Around the walls are pictures. Let Winchell describe some of them. "Notice those pictures of Will Rogers and myself. In one, Will's doing all the talking. In the second, I am, and, in the third, since we've both had our say, we seem satisfied to rest for a while and let another fellow motion picture director, John Ford, do the talking."His glance roved to the other side of the room; right above his desk. "That's the little girl, Gloria the most beautiful child ever born, who died", he mused. "Then that's Walda, 9; the other's my wife, "he concluded. Mrs. Winchell, from her photograph,, is a very attrac tive brunette. Personally autographed pictures of stage and movie stars complete the collection. Letters from government officials and other clippings have been framed and are also tacked on the wall. Two concern the Hauptmann case. One is a letter from J. Edgar Hoover, head of the G-Men, thanking him for his help in solving the case. A clipping from the "Paris Tribune," January 4, 1935, praised him for his great work in apprehending the accused murderer, in 2-inch streamers. The earlier part of Winchell's life is interesting but not important, compared to the position he occupies in this country today. "At thirteen I was thrown out of public school. The teachers said I was too stupid," he said. "I was a song and dance man in vaudeville at 15, in the war at 20. Back to vaudeville after the armistice, worked on a show paper for four years and on daily papers. Wrote for the Graphic for four and a half WALTER WINCHELL Briefly Relates Life Story, How He Works years, joined the Mirror staff in 1929 and have been here ever since." Watching Winchell write a column is as interesting as reading it. The left-handed word juggler types with two fingers. He'll write spasmodically for about a minute or two, then suddenly he turns to an observer, reads the copy, and asks for a comment. "Look, how does this sound? Do you think this cap is okeh?" he'll inquire. No use voicing an approval or a disapproval. , He's gone on with his work. He is not an incessant smoker like most newspapermen, and has little regard for time, unlike most newspapermen. He gathers his news from telegrams, from letters, correspondence from friends "who promised not to i tell a soul," telephone calls from i authoritative sources and attends a member of the biggest theatrical openings. Two telephones on his • desk ring constantly. He answers them, gets his information and ■ then reads bits from the column he is preparing to the party on the wire. Writing the material for i his broadcast, he follows the same procedure. After he's finished his column or writing his broadcast, he goes downstairs, climbs into his car and goes "cruising". His car, a low, light blue and grey Studebaker roadster is equipped with a short wave police radio set, which picks up about 10 stations (as far South as New Orleans), a red light and a siren. It's a thrilling adventure to be out "cruising" with Winchell. If any bulletin is broadcast which promises to be exciting or of news value to him, on goes the red light and siren, and he speeds to the scene. It was exciting to race along Broadway ignoring all traffic lights, through the big hilly Central Park to the scene of a crime. All we managed to get in on, though, that night, was a family squabble, and a prowler trapped on the roof of a 10-story apartment house. He knows almost every policeman in New York (lots of them by name). When he's driving Glee Club Sings IFCA High Mass t The newly reorganized Loyola j Glee Club will sing the High Mass which is to mark the opening of the Fourth Dixie Conference of the International Federation of , Catholic Alumnae at 7:30 a. m. to, morrow in the Holy Name of Jesus i church. This will be the first . public appearance of the new organization.i The organization is formulating D plans to present a Christmas concert consisting of famous carols. Plans for the Glee Club to sing over the proposed campus night programs are also being consider' ed. Announcements regarding try; outs for admission to the Glee Club will be posted in the near future. In the meantime those desiring to join can see Edward Carey, president, Marion Le Doux, vice-president, or N. M. Ferris, secretarytreasurer.Benefit Party For Band Is Successful The lotto party, given by the Philaristai for the Loyola Band last Saturday night in the basement of the Holy Name school at 8 o'clock, was a social and financial success, according to Mrs. O. L. Aubert, president. Officers will be elected and plans for the future will be considered at the regular monthly meeting to be held at 4 p. m. Friday in Thomas Hall. All members are earnestly requested by Mrs. Aubert to attend.Freshmen Meet To Plan Year's Major Events Plans for freshman activities . during the coming year were outlined at a get-together meeting of ! the first-year class Wednesday ! noon in Marquette auditorium.

A campus night program was aleo . hinted at. j "The Four Musketeers," fresh! man quartet composed of Jim Rooney, Ed Koehl. Dan Lyons, and . Paul Beach, rendered several selections.First Debate Held In Spanish Society f A Louis Read, Leo Caballero, and Warren Mendell, defending the affirpiative of the proposition, "Resolved: That the study of commer. cial Spanish is more beneficial to the students of southern universities than the study of classical Spanish," won a decision over John Finley, Harry Engler and Marshall Tullier, Wednesday morning in Room 44 of Marquette hall, according to an announcement by Miss . Jessie C. Montejo, moderator of i the Spanish club. The debate was conducted entirely in Spanish. Wallace Treme acted as chairman and Miss Montejo judged the ! contest. Warren Mendell was , judged the best speaker. CHEMISTRY EXHIBITION ' A demonstration and lecture of the progressive methods of photography were given by Brennan Gisclard and C. James Connor at the regular meeting of the Chemistry club last night at 7:30 in Bobet hall, according to H. A. Schuyten, president.

Pritchard, general manager, made known this week. Authorization for the announcement came from the CBS offices by telegram Tuesday. WWL will replace WDSU on the national chain.
