THE MAROON Volume XV Z-257 LOYOLA UNIVERSITY, NEW ORLEANS, LA., FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 1938 No. 24 Fledderman Presents Math Paper At M. A. A. Convention Article To Receive National Notice In Scientific Publication Professor Harold T. Fledderman, instructor in mathematics in the arts and sciences department of the university, will present a paper entitled, The Differentiability of an Arc, today at the annual meeting of the Louisiana- Mississippi section of the Mathematical Association of America being held in Starkville, Mississippi, on the campus of the State university. A digest of Professor Fledderman's paper will be published in the Mathematical association's publication at some future date. A graduate of St. Paul high school in Covington, La., Professor Fledderman received his bachelor's degree from Spring Hill college in 1929. Recipient of maxima cum laude honors, he became one of the few such at the oldest Jesuit institution in the South. In 1981, after two years of graduate work, Mr. Fleddermann obtained his bachelor of science in engineering degree from Detroit university. He also taught night classes in that same school while completing requirements for his degree. Immediately upon leaving Detroit, Mr. Fedderman was appointed to the Loyola faculty as a teacher of mathematics. He has continued in this work for the past seven years, while fulfilling requirements for his master's degree at the Louisiana State university. This ambition was realized last June. Among the many honors accorded Mr. Fledderman for his outstanding work in the field of mathematics was his recent election to membership in Phi Kappa Phi, national honorary scholastic fraternity.

Organizations To Issue Book Of Precedents Wish to Create Traditions In Campus Bodies By Setting Dates To firmly establish and standardize all dates and activities of the various campus organizations, a book of precedents will be compiled, it was announced at a meeting of organization representatives Monday night in the university cafeteria. The book will be arranged in time for publication at the beginning of the next school term. Whether or not it will be incorporated in the student handbook or will be published in one manual for reference alone has not yet been decided, the Reverend F. L. Janssen, S. J., director of student activities, asserted. The main purpose of the book is the traditionalizing of as many general campus activities and organization functions as possible. A rigid enforcement of its requirements will be enacted, in order to coordinate activities and dates, thus avoiding the many conflicts of the past. It is therefore necessary for all organization presidents to turn in reports on the regular functions and their purposes, as well as the approximate dates of these activities. With regard to the semi-monthly reports on all the activities, past and future, and the present financial status of the individual I Leckert Wins Photo Contest Cash Prizes To Be Awarded At End Of Year To High Scorer Winners in the first contest sponsored by the Camera club were announced this week by Edward Muldrey, acting president of the group.

Jack Ricau, former i Maroon snapper, submitted a print "which was awarded second place and another which was adjudged worthy of fifth place. A snapshot by Louis Browning captured third-place honors, one: by Muldrey won fourth position,' and another by Browning was named seventh best. Judges were Henry Hoffman, Dick Fledderman and Walter Rendall. Similar contests will be conducted every two weeks, Muldrey announced, with members of the club acting as judges. Points will be awarded prize winners, and the student having the most points at the end of the year will be awarded cash prizes. A sponsor for the club will be obtained if a large enough group of members show the proper interest, Muldrey said. Ursuline Team AZEMA FLANAGAN AUDREY ST. RAYMOND Fr.

Students Win Scholarships To Detroit U. Craig, Weaver to Work For M. A.'s On Teaching Fellowships Selection of two Loyola students for graduate fellowships to Detroit university was announced this week by the Rev: George Francis, S. .J., chairman of the department of chemistry. Father Francis was informed of the appointments in a letter from the Rev. G. A. Shiple, S. J., head of the Detroit university chemistry unit. The appointees are Winfred C. i Craig and William J. Weaver, who j are candidates for bachelor of science in chemistry degrees. At Detroit they will work for master of science honors, at the same time teaching university students under the supervision of Father Shiple. The fellowships, which are good for two years, include board, lodging and extra expense money. The men were selected on the recommendation of Father Francis and Professor Paul F. Bailey, and on the record of two other Loyola boys given like fellowships. They are Brennan G. Gisclard, '37, and Archibald Schuyten, '36. Schuyten finishes his work at Detroit this June. Craig, a native of Washington, Mo., is an honor graduate of Jesuit High school in this city. He has led his class during his stay at Loyola and is the only chemistry senior to win magna cum laude honors. He represented the university in the annual competitive! examinations by the Southern Intercollegiate Mathematics association in his first two years. At present, he is president Fishy Birthday Presents One Deep Mystery; Ranny Solves It When pretty Ranny Ledbetter, frosh medical technology, opened her purse last Tuesday in the cafe and found a neatly tied little white package, she smiled. For it was Ranny's 16th birthday (never been osculated?) and it was sweet of her friends to remember her. She smiled again. Thirty seconds later, upon opening the mystery package, Ranny turned red and screeched for help at the sight of a small green perch dangling from a piece of string. The calm after the storm found her laughing and anxious to talk about this most unusual gift. "Anyway," smiled brunette Ranny, "I'll bet no one has ever received a similar gift, especially on their 16th birthday." By this time the fish had begun to assert itself. Flashed Ranny: "An idea; I'll find my thoughtful friend and make him bury the poor thing." The search began with Ranny reasoning as follows: The culprit has to be of the opposite sex, because no girl friend of hers had ever caught a fish (?) Hence, one of her many handsome admirers must have been guilty. But who? Well, there was Steve "Knifer" Bailey, who didn't earn that nickname on his looks only. Then, too, there was Mike "The Meek" Casey, bosom pal of the "Knifer." Others who failed to escape suspicion were "Curley" Weaver, very close to the victim, and Paul Raymond. After some 30 minutes of scrutinizing the various suspects, Ranny and cohorts gave up in disgust. Would this mystery remain a mystery? It would have, if Dick Sneed, quarter-miling pal of "The Meek" and company, hadn't rushed in the cafe asking for Ranny. Under threat of blackmail (Ranny's a good friend of Dick's one and only, yuh see), "Rubber" Snead confessed. And with confession came repentance. For punish work Dick had to bury the poor little perch, (quite smelly by now) in good old terra firma.

Loyola Debates Texas A&M On National Topic The Edward Douglass White society will engage in its fourth intercollegiate debate of the season Friday night, when A. J. O'Donnell, Jr. and James E. Brown, senior arts students meet representatives of Texas A. & M. at 8 p.m. in Marquette auditorium. The subject to be debated is the national Pi Kappa Delta question, concerning the National Labor Relations board. Texas A. & M., represented by Webster Downer and J. J. Thompson, will defend the affirmative side of the question.

O'Donnell was selected as a member of the squad this year but resigned because of physical illness. He has recovered and will appear as a representative of Loyola for the first time. Loyola engaged in a forensic en- Meteorite Used In Spectrum Analysis Experiments showing the use of spectrum analysis in the determination of unknown substances were demonstrated by members of the junior class at the regular monthly demonstration of the Chemistry club Monday night in Room 304 of Bobet hall.
