Legal Author Delivers Talk To Students Authority of Law on Torts Is Well Received By Lawyers-to-be That legal education should be broadened to give law students a better appreciation of their cultural and social responsibilities, was brought out by Dr. Fowler V. Harper in an address to the student body of the school of law, Tuesday. Dr. Harper is a nationally known legal author and outstanding authority on the law of torts. He was the principal speaker at a convocation called in the law library by Dean James T. Connor. He was introduced by Professor Mort Walker, who said that in his opinion, "Dr. Harper has done more for the clarification of tort law than anyone else." Aim Not To Predict In discussing the law of torts, Dr. Harper said "the aim of tort law is not so much to predict as to salvage. A lack of appreciation of this fact is what causes such a furore over tort law. In the law of contracts, for example, a high degree of predictibility is necessary, but in the law of torts there is much room for the exercise if individual judgement." In the main part of his speech, Dr. Harper pointed out that legal (Continued on page 4) Father Murphy Made Head Of Philosophers Dr. James Connor Addresses Group On Freedom of Will With Loyola acting as host and the university campus serving as general headquarters, members of the Southern Conference of the Ameridany Cciltholic Philosophical association held the second annual convention of the group last Saturday, and elected as president the Rev. Edward F. Murphy, S. J., professor of philosophy at Xavier university. The Rev. James J. Wallace, S.J., regent of the Loyola school of dentistry, and retiring president, was chosen vicepresident of the group. Re-elected were the Rev. W. Joseph Buckley, S. M.( professor of dogmatic theology at Notre Dame seminary, executive secretary-treasurer, and Dr. James T. Connor, dean of the Loyola school of law, corresponding secretary.Adopt Comtitution The constitution provisionally accepted at the first convention of the group last year in New Orleans, was adopted as amended so that regional members not belonging to the national association may be admitted to the southern body. Assei'ting that heredity and environment are not "the sole influences in determining man's actions," Dr. Connor addressed the evening assembly of the conference in Holy Name auditorium. He ridiculed the so called "criminal anthropologist," saying that "the whole of the law is predicated on this: That man is responsible for his acts. This is nothing more than the extension of the doctrine of free will." Attend Mm Preceding the general assemblies of the convention, members attended a pontificial mass at the Holy Name of Jesus Church, adjoining the campus. Celebrant was the Most Rev. Joseph Francis Rummel, archbishop of New Orleans. Speakers at the morning sessions were the Rev. Malachy Burns, O.

Students: Me, I think the dance orchestra poll sponsored by the student dance committee is a fine thing and everyone of you should fill out the ballot printed in The Maroon and drop it in the box in the regent's office. The committee has done its part in trying to give us what we want; let us show our appreciation by giving them our full cooperation in this matter. ME. At Conventions The Rev. Percy A.

Former Violinist, Now Pianist Of Wide Fame Presented Here By Pat Chaitant A master pianist who begaln his musical career as a violinist, and turned to piano-playing comparatively late in life, was in New Orleans this week. He is Harold Bauer, concert pianist, who was soloist with the New Orleans Civic Symphony orchestra at a concert, Monday night in the Municipal auditorium. Unruffled and smiling despite two hours of strenuous rehearsal, the English virtuoso paused Sunday to light a cigarette with large, well-formed hands, and then proceeded to discuss with unassuming dignity his art, career, and musical ideas. Unmistakably a muisician because of his brown, wiry hair in typical musicianly length, he told of the beginning of his unusual musical career. Born in London, he first studied the violin with his German father, and then with a well-known violinist, making his debut in the city of his birth when ten years of age. Tours England For a number of years after this, he toured England, giving concerts. The critical moment that was to change him from violinist to pianist came when he was offered an engagement as piano-accompanist for a singer. Familiar, as most violinists are, with the piano and its technique, he accepted the engagement. The piano solo which he offered between the singer's numbers won him so much acclaim, that he finally secured engagements as a pianist and rapidly rose to the pinnacle of pianistic fame. Except for the helpful friendship of the pianist Ignace Paderewski, Mr. Bauer has never had All-University Poll To Decide Favorite Student Dance Band Leading Orchestra to Appear at Final Dance of Year to be Held May 27 For the first time in the history ; of the university, students of Loyola will have an opportunity to have their favorite orchestra play i for one of the regular all-university student dances. An all-university poll to determine the most popular local orj chestra will be conducted during J the next two weeks by the student dance committee, it was announced Wednesday, by Richard E. Wright, chairman. This orchestra will play for the last student dance of the year, scheduled for May 27. "Primary balloting in all colleges will be held through 5 p.m.. Wednesday, January 26," Wright stated in urging all students to fill out the ballot printed in this issue of the Maroon. All votes must be deposited in the box placed in the office of the regent of the college of arts and sciences. Finals in the pell will be held during the following week, with students voting for one of the four orchestras which obtain the highest ratings in the primaries. "This is the first time that anything of this sort has been attempted by the committee," Wright said Thursday, "and the adoption of such a procedure in the future will depend on the manner in which this effort is received by the student body." "It is an earnest effort of the committee to give the students what they want," Jack Smythe, secretary, said. We want our dances to be student dances in fact, as well as in name. We wanr everybody to vote this week and the next." Among the orchestras which may be nominated are Johnnie De- Droit, Leslie George, Gordon Kirst, Russ Papalia, Roy Aultman, The Student Orchestra, Larry Veca, and Al Strieman. Frosh, Sophs Meet In Third Trophy Event Basketball Game to Be Played at Loyola Gym In Near Future Basketball teams representing j the freshman and sophomore j classes will meet soon after the end of semester examinations in the tl\nl event of the anhual Hausmann Thophy series. Fred Michon, president of the freshman class, and Henry Pardo, sophomore prexy, have been notified to collect teams for the contest, it was announced by Louis Wilson, chairman of the student council committee in charge of the series. According to the class leaders, members of the two squads will most probably be chosen from among the men competing in the all-university injaiamural basketball league which began last week. At present the series is all tied up in a knot, the sophomores having taken the first event, a tug of war, while the frosh were victorious in the interclass debate held just before the Christmas holidays. "Since it is necessary for one class to win three events in the series in order to merit the trophy," Wilson said, "it will be necessary to hold at least one more event after the basketball game. If the president will give his permission, then the next contest will be staged in the form of a campus night." In the event that the permission is not granted, the two classes will vie in a soft ball game to be played at Loy#la stadium. Social Heads List Of Future Events For Commerce Unit Club Makes Plans for Talks By Prominent Guest Speakers "The Commerce club will, in the second semester, elaborate only slightly on its policy adopted at the start of this scholastic year," stated Wallace Treme, president, Wednesday. Early in February a social, in the form of a house party will be given in the ball room at the home of Ivor Trapolin, member of the club, according to Charles Peck, head of the social committee. "In the future, membership to the Commerce club will be invitational," Treme announced. "Only students with better than average scholastic standings who are interested in commerce, will be asked to join the group." The organization will hold its next regular meeting Monday night, January 31. Fr. Gaudin Delivers Invocation Opening Harris Investiture The Very Rev. Harold A. Gaudin, S.J., president of the university, delivered the invocation officially opening the ceremonies inaugurating Dr. Rufus C. Harris as 10th president of Tulane university, Tuesday night in Municipal auditorium. Dr. James T. Connor, dean of the school of law, was a representative of Loyola, in addition to Father Gaudin.
