THE MAROON Volume XV Z-257 LOYOLA UNIVERSITY, NEW ORLEANS, LA., FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 1938 No. 20 Debate Squad Opens Collegiate Campaign Against Marquette U. National Pi Kappa Delta Question Argued By Teams The debating squads of Marquette university of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Loyola university of the South met in a forensic encounter Thursday night at 8 p.m. in Marquette auditorium. Marquette upheld the affirmative of the national Pi Kappa Delta question, "Resolved: That the National Labor Relations Board shall be empowered to enforce the arbitration of all industrial disputes." John J. McCann and Harold A. Ainsworth of Loyola defended the negative. / The Marquette debaters, in attempting to establish the truth of their premise, showed that the stability of the National Labor Relations Board would necessarily create a demand for its supervision of all industrial problems, in contrast to the dickering" and petty squabbling which takes place today.Ainsworth, in his main speech, stressed that "the wisdom of the business man and the laborer will be taken away, and in its place we will have the whim of the politician." Continuing, he remarked, "The decisions of the board cannot be enforced against the working class or the business man. An Discuss Books, Pictures At J-S Sodality Meeting A program staged by the Legion of Decency committee under the direction of 0. Jack Smythe, was featured at the Junior-Senior sodality meeting Tuesday, 10:10 a. m. in Marquette auditorium. Freddie Giangrosso addressed the sodalists on Catholic Aspects in the Cinemas. Smythe reviewed the current novel, The Citadel, by A. J. Cronin, remarking that the book is "well-written, entertaining, and can be classified as clean and decent literature." Peter Compagno and George Waguespack criticized the current local motion pictures, while Jack Ricau spoke on Catholic Magazines and Books in Every Catholic Homo. Shambles in Shanghai was the title of an article read from the Catholic Digest by Morel Elmer, chairman of the Catholic Truth committee.

Kirst Chosen Most Popular By Students Student Orchestra Close Or Heels of Victorious Band Gordon Kirst and his orchestra will play for the final student dance of the year, scheduled for Friday, May 27. Obtaining 96 votes out of the 185 cast in the finals of the balloting to select the local orchestra most popular with Loyola students, Kirst's orchestra managed to win over the Student orchestra, with 72 votes, Johnny DeDroit 13, and Leslie George 4. As a result of the win, Kirst's orchestra was selected to furnish the music for the last all-university function of this session. In the poll primary, staged last week, Kirst finished a close second to Johnnie DeDroit for top honors, with the Student orchestra and Leslie George nejct in line. A last minute rush of votes in favor of the Student orchestra in the finals just fell short of reaching the Kirst organization, which took an early lead. The contest was sponsored by the all-university dance committee, under the direction of Richard E. Wright, chairman, and Jack Smythe, secretary. "We are very much pleased with the interest taken by the student body in the poll," said Smythe. "It is evident that the students appreciate the effort of the committee to give them what they want." The next student dance will be held Friday night at the Southern Yacht club, with Russ Papalia and his orchestra playing from 10 till 2, Wright announced. Invitations at the usual rate of 75 cents per couple and 50 cents per stag, go on sale today. They may be obtained from any member of the dance committee. Fourteen naval officers will be guests of honor at the function.

Karl Bierhorst, 3116 St. Claude Avenue. Frank L.

John J. McCann, top, and Harold Ainsworth, who represented Loyola in the first intercollegiate debate of the current season, held last night in Marquette auditorium. Army In Effort To Enlist More Air Corps Men [Two Years of College Credit Needed By Applicants for Admission An increase in the number of ! flying cadets to be trained at the Air Corps Training center at San Antonio, Texas, has been authorized by the War department, according to a letter received this week by the Very Rev. Harold A. Gaudin, S. J., president of the university."In view of this increase, it becomes imperative that the Army carry on an energetic and continuous effort to secure applications from the maximum number of suitable candidates, the letter, coming from the office of the Corps Area Commander, Headquarters Fourth Corps Area, Atlanta, Georgia, stated. Pamphlets Available Pamphlets decriptive of flying cadet training, and giving official data on the subject, posters and blank admission forms have been circulated throughout the colleges and universities of this area. Loyola students may obtain particulars concerning the trainingschool from the office of the regent of the college of arts and sciences. The minimum requirements of the Air Corps Training Center in-: elude one-half the college credits j necessary for graduation. Hence i the appeal for recruits is made to! university students. "It is desir- j able that great care be exercised la this respect, and that no stu-1 dent be influenced to leave college in advance of graduation in j order to become a flying cadet," Theta Beta To Hear Tulane Guest Speaker Dr. Edward Hathaway to Talk On Mosquito Problem In South Dr. Edward S. Hathaway, chairman of the department of zoology at Tulane university, will give an illustrated lecture at a meeting of the Alpha Chapter of Theta Beta, national honor biology society, Thursday, February 17, at 8 p.m., in Room 304, Bobet hall. The subject of Dr. Hathaway's speech will be "The Mosquito Problem in Southern Louisiana." Dr. Hathaway has been doing research work with Dr. William T. Penfound, chairman of the department of botany at Tulane for the last five years, on the ecology of the Louisiana marshlands, with the view of finding a means of controlling the salt water mosquito. The lecture will treat mostly with the biology of the mosquito and the present stand in the problem of mosquito control. A thorough study of the biology of tho mosquito is necessary before any work can be begun towards eradicating this pest. The breeding habits and the type and distribution of breeding grounds have to be fully understood, for a knowledge of these is essential for work in the destruction of the Alumni Plan To End Dues With Voluntary Fund Collections to Pass Through Hands of University, Says Black Pl»ns for the establishment of a fund composed of voluntary contributions by the Loyola Alumni association will be discussed at a regular meeting of the group to be held Wednesday, February 16, in Marquette auditorium. The creation of this fund will automatically eliminate the collection of dues, Temple Black, president explained. All contributions made to the fund will go through the hands of the university, and after expenses from the year are deducted, the net profit of the organization will be turned over to Loyola. This method has been used with fine results in many colleges and universities throughout the country, Black pointed out. Every alumnus may thus aid the association to run its financial affairs and at the same time indirectly contribute a small amount in cash to the general fund of Loyola. A proposal to stage an annual membership drive, in an effort to enlarge the present organization, and to stimulate interest in university affairs will also be taken under consideration, according to the president. Begin Dues Collection For Junior-Senior Ball Collection of junior and senior class dues will begin next week, John Screen, chairman of the Junior-Senior Ball committee, announced Thursday. Twenty members of the upperclasses have been appointed to assist class officers in the collection of the dues. "This enables us to contact the members of the classes individually," Screen said. There will be a meeting of the junior and senior classes Friday at 12:30 p.m. in Marquette auditorium. All class members are urged to attend as several changes in plans for the ball will be made at this time. Cute, eh? Therese, the pretty French barmaid of "Le Pacquebot Tenacity," will be seen Tuesday night in the person of Lucile Bodet, Ursuline sophomore, when Le Circle Francais. presents its annual play in Holy Name auditorium.

In strutted Sergio and j Marilyn doing their original "ups and downs" in their best Loyola style. From this they went into the "double-truck"—often imitated by their fellow classmates, but never up to that Fernandez-Durel standard; now a bit of "pris-' sie-pants," then into the "rag-doll," only to break out with a choice morsel of "peckin' and posin' " as the crowd roared; this was followed by their well-known "shag" and other fascinating steps too j screwy to mention. And so to the hot rhythm of Ben Pollack's orchestra, the Blue Room patrons had been treated to the zippiest "Big Apple" a college lad and lass •Ver stomped. The dance was a terrific success. Fernandez, who hails from Tampa, Florida, and is a resident of, Ducote hall, never took a dancing lesson in his life! Marilyn, on the other hand, has been taking (Continued on page 6) Three-Act Drama To Be Staged By Le Cercle Tuesday Bodet, Malochee, And Vil- Jere Carry Leads In "Le Paquebot Tenacity" "Le Paquebot Tenacity," a modern three-act comedy by Charles Vildrac, will be presented by Le Cercle Francais, university, French society, Tuesday, February 15, at 8 p.m. in Holy Name auditorium.The opening, curtain will find George Malochee and Pierre Villere carrying the male leads, and Lucile Bodet, Ursuline sophomore, the female lead, in a play which promises to furnish almost two hours of laughter and wholesome entertainment. The entire action of the play takes place in the year of 1920 fn a small cafe in a small town on the southern seacoast of France. Malochee and Villere, both wellknown for the splendid performances which they have rendered in the past productions staged by the French club, enacting the roles of ex-soldiers, have just booked passage on the English steamer "Tenacity." The two are forced to take lodging at the city cafe when the boat is unexpectedly delayed for repairs just before sailing time. Chums Fall In Love During their stay, the young men manage to become acquainted with Therese, a cute little ! waitress, in the person of Miss Bodet, who will be remembered for her performances in past plays at Ursuline, and in the recent operetta, "My Tomboy Girl." The two chums ultimately fall in love with the young girl, and their renewed efforts to be the "lucky fellow" is indeed entertaining. The chief interest of the play j is psychological, and is found in the revealing of the thoughts and : sentiments of the author in the I words of the characters. The leading characters in the or, der of their appearance include: Therese—Lucile Bodet; Hidoux —Lawrence Kavanagh; Bastien— [George Malochee; Segard—Pierre I Villere; Madame Cordier—Lucy Olivier; Le Marin Anglaia—Verdun Daste. The supporting roles will be upheld by James Brown, Thomas Taylor, Robert Spangenberg, Gerard Michel, George Medaille and William Klause.

Explains William Simno, president of the freshman council and chairman of the Hop committee, "When the decision was made concerning class favors, we anticipated a greater number of students attending the affair.
