Mistrot Is First Day Student To Try C.P.A. Examinations Passes Two Most Difficult of Three Required Tests For the first time in the history of the university, a student in the day school division has attempted to pass the examinations for qualification as a certified public accountant. Not only has he tried, but he has actually passed two of the three required tests. He is Lloyd Mistrot, senior finance student, who only a few years ago was forced to leave school to wage a hard battle against death, returning to establish one of the most enviable records in the university's finance department. Mistrot took the C. P. A. examinations in November, and was informed this week that he had passed accounting and auditing, considered the most difficult of the three tests. He failed to pass commercial law, but will endeavor to make up his condition early in May. If he succeeds, he will be a certified public accountant before having received his degree from the university. Battled With Death Three years ago, while in his sophomore year, Mistrot became gravely ill and was forced to leave the university. For six months his life was despaired of, but he gradually recovered, and after a year's recuperation returned to pursue his studies. In past years, Lloyd has been engaged by several local accounting firms. During the income tax periods of this year and last, he has also been employed by these firms in a temporary position. From February to June of 1937 Mistrot taught a course in firstyear accounting in the college of pharmacy, which was the first time that any student has been appointed to such a position. This year he has supervised the third-year accounting lab in the night school divisions, and has also lectured occasionally to the class. Praised By Faculty He is a graduate of Holy Cross college, where he was consistently among the honor students of his class. Mistrot's accomplishments have Near C. P. A.

Paul Beach To Preside Over Follies By HAM AVEGNO He wowed 'em at the recent College Council varieties with a display of wit that would cause Jack Benny to blush with shame, Eddie Cantor to call Ida, and Charlie, McCarthy to desert Bergen. And he'll do it again today at noontime when producers Hooper and Maher present the hit show of the year, "Major Hooper's Milk Fund Frolics".Who's he? You've probably guessed by this time, but nevertheless this man of humor, sarcasm, and wit happens to be the one and only, inimitable, Paul "Daffy" Beach, master of ceremonies for the Major's great show. When asked what he thought concerning the possible success of the produdtion, Beach chuckled nonchalantly, "I'll put it over with a bang. Man, it has to go over, why I'll bet some of those people don't even have a pot to cook in." Pennies From Heaven Which means that the boys and girls should desert the cafeteria this noon hour and turn out en masse for 1938's star-studded Elmer Named Student Ed Of Dentalia Appointment of Leonard Elmer, senior in tho school of dentistry, as student editor of The Dentalia, dental quarterly to appear on the campus for the first time in the latter part of February, was announced Tuesday by Dr. Sidney L.

In The Throes Of Study Engrossed in their studies on the steps of Marquette hall are Senior "Slim Jim" Peterson and l'Yeshii: Carmelite Gulotta. The -cine is typical of those found on the campus on the eve of semester examinational as students prepare to do or die for dear old "Quality Points." Exams Find Students Stoically Prepared To Meet The Worst The tall and short of it were I discussing what everyone else is thinking of at this time of the year, not a very pleasant thought, but an inevitable and foregone conclusion. Both agree that Mr. and Miss Loyola will face some last pitching from the pedagogues I when they take the field next week. "Slim" Peterson, elongated footballer-basketballer, is the tall end of this story. In fact he soars a good six feet six in his stocking feet. Last year sports writers hailed him as the longest piece of footballing humanity in captivity. Presently, Pete's afraid to dream i of what may happen when the firing commences. Drawled Pete, "Man, thar gonna be plenty tough but I'll be ready for the worst." Quite an Ordeal Pete's a senior this year, so the ordeal will be nothing new for him. Nevertheless he wants to go on record as saying that "exams are only good for headaches, sleepless nights, itchy fingers, suspense, and worry." Which, if you know Mississippi's gift to the Wolfpack, is saying a lot for him. According to Pete, the best thing with regardNew Volumes Are Added To Library Shelf J Works By Belloc, Lunn Are Among 102 Recent Additions The library of the college of arts and sciences has recently added 120 titles to its stacks, for use of students in all departments of the university, Mrs. Lena Marcy, librarian, announced this week.

Scott on Washington avenue. Board Keepers: Me, I think our bulletin boards are a mess. Notices of all sizes, colors, information anil importance are slapped on the same board, and I have to wade through them all to find the one I want. We have enough nice boards around the university so that notices (neatly written) of the same nature might be grouped on the same board, and those relating to other matters on another board. Then maybe our bulletin boards wouldn't be such a mess. ME.
