Mr. Libbey said, "Peace has not come yet and history iD against the success of the peace movement now. . . .

LOYOLA STADIUM IS RANKED AMONG FINEST IN THE SOUTH Baseball Diamond and Track Completed. " \iiCl tlic ugly duckling changed into a beautiful swan." "Thi- is the story of Loyola stadium, transformed within the past few years ticin an ordinary swamp into one of the fines) athletic fields in the South. Over $150,000 lias hen expended to renovate the 'ugly duckling'." Tin, playing field in those day- was a bare spot flanked by a ramshackle grandstand on one side and a hit of mai shland on tin- other. Going through a gradual change tin field began to assume an aspect which marked the construction of the modern up-to-date stadium that was opened to sporting fans this season. The field itself is far from being the former hare spot that it was year- hack. Rolling level from end to end and covered with a blanket of short khiss. the field looks more like a putting green than a gridiron. Underneath thi- mantle of green i- a perfect draining system that leaves the field in excellent condition after the heaviest rains. Replacing the old ramshackle grandstand that formerlj existed are com modious stands painted a battleship gray. The facl thai thej are ion structed from high grade cypress instead of concrete material elm-, not at all detract from the imposing appearance of the structure. A sheltered press box at the top of the stands, equipped for the convenience of the writers, affords the reporters an unobstructed view of tin, games. A telephone connected to the players' bench gives the necessary inside dope to the lDrc-- men. This convenii m addition has elicited many complimentary rema vk s. The gymnasium is thoroughly equipvith locker rooms and showers to Lccommodate the players and the visiting team-.
