THE MAROON DEVOTED TO THE INTERESTS OF LOYOLA UNIVERSITY VOL 1 NEW ORLEANS, LA., FRIDAY, DECEMBER 21, 1923 No: 4 PSI OMEGA GIVES ANNUAL FRESHMAN SMOKER By JAS. A. COMEAUX, JR Loyola Delta Omega Chapter Entertain Large Gathering in Roosevelt. Freshmen Dental class were guests of the Delta Omega chapter of Psi Omega at one on the most successful smokers in the history of the local chapter. Truly the freshies should remember ■that night for they were gloriously treated to good eats, smokes and honest to goodness liquid refreshments, such as only Messrs. Ledbetter and Foley could arrange for. The freshies responded to roll call by the upper class men promptly at nine o'clock, and the affair started just a little later with a toast by Mr. Smith to Psi Omega and went on quietly until the effect of the grape juice and Coca- Cola became noticeable, and then the tun began, and resulted in a pleasing combination of the sublime and the ridiculous. Informal as it was the purposes of the smoker were admirable accomplished. What better idea could we get of the personality of a man than by seeing him eat and drink and hear.HE Him making speeches? Well this test \va Vppiied when Mr. Comeaux as impromptu toastmaster called upon each one of the first year men after proper introduction to say something for themselves and for the freshmen class. When freshie Broussard's turn came, Mr. Comeaux showed good judgment in asking him to sing some of his famous songs. The officers of the chapter were then called upon and each one in his own way explained to the freshmen the desire of all the frat members to become acquainted with them and all 1 expressed the hope that they would some day qualify as members of the Delta Omega chapter. Past Grand Master Dr. Tiblier in a little talk recited to the freshmen the history and the accomplishments of the chapter at the university and fondly expressed the hope that the good work would be kept up by the present members and those of the future. Dr. White though not a member of Ps'. "Omega had nothing but praise for the chapter and its work in fostering the highest ideals of the dental profession.About this time the sandwiches and drinks were all consumed and the after smoker stories were now in order. Mr. Ledbetter was unanimously sel- ected to tell a few, and as he was feeling exceedingly well he kept the party roaring for the time he was on the floor. Grand Master Strickland then called upon every member of the fraternity to say something, and each one expressed his enthusiasm in fraternity work, and patted himself on the back as having passed through the initiation to active membership. Mr. Nolan, President of the freshmen class then called his gang together and wound up the affair by giving fifteen rahs for Psi Omega. DEBATING SOCIETY IS FORMED Officers Are Elected; Much Enthusiasm Shown. Another milestone in the epochmaking progress of Loyola University was passed when the students of the college department organized a long needed debating society. There has been a long standing and widespread demand for such a society but the boys were never able to get together. This year the question was again brought up and through the earnest and consistent work of George Schoenberger what was before merely a wish has now become a reality. The inaugural meeting was held on Wednesday, December 12, at which about fifteen or twenty enthusiastic members were present. Mr. Dardis was elected president; Mr. Crane, vicepresident; and Mr. Schoenberger, secretary and treasurer. The first formal meeting was held Tuesday, December 18, at which the constitution and plan of procedure was adopted. The meetings will be held every other Tuesday, at which a debate will be held on some live question, and great benefit is expected to be derived by the members. We are on the way, expect better.things. SODALITY FIXES DAYS OF MEETING Committees for Various Sections Are Named.

In order to establish a precedent, the president was chosen from the Senior class, the vice-president, from the Junior, the secretary-treasurer from the Freshman, and the position of sergeant-at-arms was left vacant, to be filled by a member of the pre-legal class. All officers were elected unanimously. Mr. Werthheimer was elected president; Mr. E. P. Dutsch, vicepresident, and Mr. S. C. Hartel, secretary and treasurer. At the first meeting following the election, the president announced the creation of Publicity, Program, and Rules Committees, and explained the duties of the members of each committee. Mr. Schwartz was appointed chairman of the Publicity Committee; Mr. Dutsch, of the Program; and Mr. Yiosca, of the Rules. It was unanimously adopted that debates should be held on three out of every four meetings, and that the fourth meeting should be devoted to business. The first debate of the year was held on Thursday, December 13, between teams representing the Freshman and Junior classes. The subject was "Resolved, Thaf the Philippines be given their immediate independence." The affirmative was supported by Messrs. Boagni and Finnorn of the Freshmen, and the negative by Messrs. Schwartz and Brown of the Juniors. Messrs. Racivitch, Monier, and Gardiner, of the Senior class, awarded a unanimous decision in favor of the negative, and for Mr. Brown as best speaker. While the judges were deliberating, Father. Kenny spoke a few words on the necessity for adequate preparation in debating, and congratulated the speakers on the splendid debate that they had arranged on such a short notice. President Werthheimer, announced that beginning the following week, a series of elimination debates will be held. This series will be climaxed by a final debate between the two undefeated teams, and a prize of $100.00 will be awarded the winning team. $50.00 of this prize will be given to the best speaker, and $25.00 to each of his colleagues. The debate for next week will be on the subject, "Resolved, That the railroads of the United States be placed under government ownership." It will be held in the Junior class rom of the Law School on Thursday, December 20th, at nine o'clock . All are invited to attend.

I trust that your Christmas gift to Loyola will be a new member, so that our work may increase more and more for the glory of Him, Who came 011 earth to bring peace to men of good will. Merry, Merry Xmas then, and a inrice Happy New Year. It is my last message of this dying year and my first greetings for the opening of 1924. Very sincerely, E. CUM MINGS, S.J. P. S.—As the first Tuesday falls on New \ ear s Day, we shall have our meeting on the second Tuesday in January. Kindly start the year by a full atendance at this first meeting. Bring your new member. The meeting will be special interesting, the hour 3 :30 p. 111., the place, Louise C. Thomas Hall, the purpose, for a Greater Loyola.HOLY NAME CHURCH IS NOW COMPLETED Edifice Most Beautiful in Southland.. Some people will give something thing for the car; and still others someelectrical for Christmas: others something for the house. But the best Christmas present that will be given this year is the one that Brother Shroen will present to the congregation of Holy Name Parish. For on Christmas morn the Holy Name Church will step forth as one of the most beautifully finished churches in the city, thanks to the hard and most artistic work of Bro. Shroen. Brother has been hard at work for nearly a whole year painting, planning and directing, keeping the work going going at top speed in order that he might visit the shrine of the infant Savior as did the Wise men of old and offer Him a gift equal in every respect to their gold incense and myhr. The frescoing is a marvel of achievement. The church is made to appear as if it were built of a beautiful sandstone with the most delicate veining and finishing. Still Brother disclaims any credit at all for what he has done. When told how talented he was, he modestly replied: "It was given to me by the Almighty and I would be greatly at fault if I did not do my best to develop it and return as far as I am able what has been freely given to me." However that may be we all reap the benefits of his labors and are indei d grateful to him. BOAT RIDE MAIN SOCIAL FUNCTION OF THE NEW YEAR Extensive Preparations Have Been Made for January 11. If yon want to start the New Year right and live up to what is expected of you as a Loyola student, ring up your best girl and tell her that you are going to take her on Loyola's big Boat Ride January 11, 1924. Extensive preparations have been made to make this event one that will be remembered by all. It is to be given for the benefit of the Athletic Association, and from this it may readily be inferred that there will be a large crowd present. Every Loyola student is expected, if it is in any way possible, not only to be on hand, but also to bring a friend. Particular care however, must be taken as to the selectness of the crowd present. To provide for this the Athletic Association has issued tickets to each student and is depending upon him for both the quantity and quality of the participants. No tickets will be sold at the boat on the night of the ride, and so every student is urged to attend to this matter as soon as possible. The palatial steamer Capitol has been hired for the occasion. It will be highly decorated with Loyola Maroon and Gold, while one of the best bands that has ever struck a note pf Jazz will set the pace for the whirling dancers. This is the first Boat Ride that Loyola has ever given. It can be readily seen that she must have a worthy representation. Other schools and colleges are planning similar rides in the near future. Loyola's will be first and therefore she has the opportunity to set a precedent that will be difficult for others to follow. The student body has never failed in any social event that they have undertaken. They will not fail in this if they have the same support that was so evident in the past three months. And so on January 11, 1924, at 8:30 P. M. the steamer Capitol will glide serenely down the majestic Mississippi with a crowd of joyful, happy students and friends of Loyola. FRESHIES DANCE GREAT SUCCESS Freshmen of College Department Entertain Large Crowd. The College Department Freshies covered themselves with glory on Saturday, December 8, when they entertained the student body and their friends with the best dance that has been given at the Gym this year. It was the most successful dance that has ever been given. The hall was fairly packed and yet there was present that wonderful combination of congenial sociability and quiet dignity that has characterized all such Loyola functions. The Dixola Jazz Band did themselves proud and thoroughly delighted the record making crowd. The boys are to be complimented for put ing it over and they deserve a lot of praise for beating the upper classmen We are glad to have such spirit anio ig out first year men for it gives us D Jinething to beat that is really wor h beating. SENIORS All Seniors of all Departments at Loyola are urged to have their pictures taken in Cap and Gown at the Studio of Rembrandt, 918 Canal Street, before the Ist of the year. It is necessary that this be attended to at once otherwise the pictures will not appear in the Ginger Pot. To the Faculty, to the Students, and to its Subscribers and Advertisers, the Maroon extends the warmest of Christmas Greetings and the best of New Year Wishes. May Santa Claus be good to each and every one of you, and may the dying emblems of the Yule Log send forth the spark of prosperity that will be yours throughout the coming New Year.
