P. Hardy, passenger agent of the Southern Pacific lines, addressed students of commerce Friday. The topic of his talk was Passenger Traffic and Pullman Service Existing Today. Mr. Hardy explained the many features attached to this line of work. Mentioned were the facts that pullman cars are not owned by the railroads but are merely leased out to them on a $9000 guarantee; and that there exists three modes by which one may travel from one part of the country to another, first class, intermediate or second class. In conclusion it was made clear that the majority of the cars today were air conditioned either by frigidaire, ice or by a new form of gas. This afternoon another lecture will be given in Room 33. Socialists Hear Summaries On Catholic Truth Catholic associations in Germany have been practically destroyed, it was revealed by Joseph Drewes, principal speaker of the Catholic Truth committee program at the weekly meeting of the junior-senior sodality Tuesday at 10:10 a.m. in Marquette auditorium. The topic of his lecture on Systematic Destruction of Catholic Schools in Germany, was taken from the Catholic Action magazine.Morel Elmer, chairman, read "Propaganda: How to Recognize It and How to Deal with It," from the Pathfinder. Other speakers on the program were Peter Beach, who summarized the Catholic Digest, and Dave Brunner, who spoke on the Sunday Visitor. John Screen, prefect, presided. A report on a visit of the sodalitietl to the Parish Prison was featured at the meeting of the music school sodality Tuesday at 12:30 in the office of the dean. A spiritual meeting was held Friday, at 8 a.m. in the sodality chapel. 'El Capitan, Mike Casey, captain of the Wolfpack basketball squad, who will make his last appearance on the local jcourt tonight when he and his team mates face the Naval Base cadets from Pensacola. 'Flunk-Proof Insurance Atlas Screen's Latest Brain Child Students who write home and tell the pater that E stands for excellent and F for fine on the infallable report card, should consult that man of action, the mighty mite of the campus, "Atlas" John Screen, in order to prevent such from happening again this semester.Chain-letters, miniature golf courses, slot machines, big apples, trucking, and Father Divine, will have to take a back seat to Screen's "Flunk-proof" insurance. Sounds crazy? It is crazy. Even the name is misconceived and misleading.Atlas, who has more ideas than a billionaire bachelor has chorus girls, defines his terms: "The student pays a monthly rate of 25 cents per month for four months, totaling one dollar. If said student (we mean sucker), despite all e.Torts to the contrary succeeds in getting a condition grade, we pay without dispute the sum of two dollars, said sum sufficient to meet financial requiremeritsrequiremerits tor taking a condition exam. If the sucker passes all subjects or flunks all, said student loses monthly payments." A second glance ac the above ! will change the name "flunk! proof" to "condition-proof." Anyway, the Gridder (just another one of his many names) thinks the idea plausible and would like to interest colleges throughout the country in Screen's Flunk-proof Insjurancie. A supposed) wit is said to have remarked: "Maybe Johnny can get Tulane and Loyola to play football with his screwy insurance idea." Speculations concerning the scheme run rife. Students like Joe Tregle, Winnie Craig, and Jack McCarthy are warned to steer clear of the plan. Straight A students would merely, be donating a dollar to the cause. On the other hand, the shaky student, the plodder, and the crammer, are depended upon to make the name, "Screen's Flunk-proof Insurance," as famous as "Heintz' Fifty-seven Varieties." Council Uses Same System For Awards 'Book of Precedents' To Be Inaugurated For All Organizations The same system of awards to meritorious students as was employed last year will be used again ' this term, it was decided at a ! meeting of the student council held Sunday, February 13, at 9:45 a.m. in Room 32 of Marquette hall. In order for a student to merit a key, which is the symbol of the organization, he is required to have done outstanding work during two years. All seniors having done meritable work will be awarded a key ; with the emblem of the organization in which they have been active, superimposed, according to an announcement made by A. J. O'Donnell, council president. The I Hausmann jewelers have already submitted their bid for the making of the keys, and the bids of other funis are expected within the next few days. Stops Date Changes The council is now undertaking the drawing up of a book of "preriilciits" for all organizations of the university. The purpose of the book is to bring to an end the continual changing of dates of the various social functions from year to year. It is also intended as a means of letting each organization know just, what is expected of it each year. "The different organizations are going to be approached in order to obtain all necessary information for the drawing up of such a book, and J wish to urge them to cooperate as much as they possibly can," O'Donnell said. The committee in charge is composed of Robert Laeey, Helen D'Antoni and O'Donnell. When the committee has completed the book, it will be submilted to a vote of the entire student council and then, in turn, to the president and board of trustees of the university for final approval. William Cooke, sophomore member of the council, was appointed to draw up a petition to the president of the university for a revision of the rules for the orientation of freshmen, as the spirit of that class does not come up to the standard of the freshman classes of the past. ANNOUNCE DATE FOR DENTAL EXAMINATION Member* of the senior class in the School of Dentistry will take their second set of comprehensive examinations Wednesday, February 23, 1938. Passage of these examinations, scheduled to last from 8 a. m. to B p. m., is necessary for graduation. Exams will be held in the follow ing subjects: Operative Dentist r y, Metal urgy, Physiology, Psysiologieal Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry. Student Council: Me, I don't like to kick, but—l'm pretty hot because of something. You've guested it. It's that coat I have to wear. Don't you_ think that you could do something! about getting the "coat rule" suspended during these warm periods? Me and the other ffuya would sure appreciate it. I think the fellows have obeyed the rule very faithfully and are entitled to a break, if you can work it. ME. (Continued on page 6) I FLUNK-PROOF? Read John Screen's new plan guaranteed to keep students from flunking. Maybe he can help you. At any rate you can help him if you contribute your share of premiums. LAST STAND Loyola's 1938 basketball team make* its last appearance on the home court Friday night against the Cadets from the Naval Base at Pensacola. A large crowd and a good game i* expected.
