A fair-sized crowd witnessed Loyola's fourth intercollegiate debate of the season, which found O'Donnell and Brown debating the national question for the first time. A model forensic match between members of the Loyola varsity debate squad will be staged in the Behrman high school auditorium next Friday afternoon before the entire student body of that school. Harold Ainsworth and John J. McCann, junior law students, will uphold the affirmative of the national question against Robert F. Morrow and Joseph J. Miranne, senior and sophomores arts and sciences students, respectively. This squad is the one which will represent the university on the road trip, complete details of which will be released next week, according to Sidney Braud, varsity debate manager. The model debate is being sponsored by the Edward Douglass White society in an effort to bring to high school debaters the fine points of forensic art, Ainsworth president of the society, stated. Jesuit Mission Discussed By Father Cassid) Speaking on The Jesuit Mission in Ceylon, the Rev. Edward T. Cassidy, S. J., regent of the college of pharmacy and procurator for the mission, delivered an illustrated lecture before members of the Catholi. Student! Mission Crusade an Chf kC ppral public, Tuesday night in -Uarquette auditorium.The vast majority of converts, won over to the faith by the mission, are drawn from the ranks of the Hindus, while few are taken from among the Buddhists, and none from among the Mohammedans, Father Cassidy said. "Fish, rice, and cocoanuts are the staple foods on the island," the speaker explained, "and there are no modern conveniences whatsoever. The dangers from disease, cobras, and rogue elephants are very great, and although poverty is extreme among the people, their faith is profound." Student Votes Back Loyolans In Dress Ballot O'Dwyer, Maerz, and Young Figure in Contest For 'Best-Dressed' With all the precincts as yet unheard from, and with computations on ballots at hand as yet incomplete, the Loyola voting for the five best dressed men of New ; Orleans enters its second week Monday, with such well-known figures as Seymour Weiss and Frank Dudenheffer almost sure to find their way into the winning university count, and with such sartorically-perfect Loyolans as Rudy O'Dwyer, Jiggs Maerz and J. Wells Young high in the running. Final results in the Loyola balloting of the contest, a city-wide affair conducted over the radio, j through the city's newspapers, and on the various college campuses, will be compiled at the end of the contest next week. Any I man in New Orleans is eligible for inclusion in the quintet, and any man or woman in the city may participate in the voting. The above-mentioned New Orleanians and Loyolans stood out noticeably in the first week of voting as the most consistent choices of the students. But close .upon their heels and among the strangest and most mysterious of the entries were such men as Joseph Blow, Gyp the Rip, Theodore Xznskgnmc, and Fred Cslyghohm.The winner of the city-wide poll will be honored with a special presentation by the Retail Men's Wear committee at the conclusion of the contest. What are the marks of the well dressed man? Well, that's up to what you think about it, and if you are prone to succumb to the wiles of a cockily tilted hat or a perfect fore-inhand, then let them serve as your guides. Ballots of Loyola students may be dropped into the ballot box placed in front of the office of the regent of the college of arts and sciences. Voting blanks may be found at the same place. Elect Secretary For German Club Dick G. Fleddermann, freshman arts and sciences, was elected secretary of Deutscher Verein Frohsinn, German group, at a meeting of the club Wednesday in Room 133 of Marquette hall.

Night School Student Exposes All; Tells Secrets Of Poetry By Ham Avegno To write successful poetry oni must be either miserable or ii love. Often one is both—like Pe trarch and Fred Crane, for in stance. Petrarch is the name of an anti quated Italian gent whom the cri tics like to quote now and then Fred Crane, in case you're curious is the Loyola night school's gif to the followers of Keats am Shelley. Handsome Fred, whi played the lead in the nighters presentation of the Ryerson Mys tery, used to think all poets wen sissies until he met a certain fickl femme nigh on to five months ago The worm turned, and now hi ! friends are calling him the "poe laureate" of Loyola. Fred ex plains the Cranian theory of self expression as regards the aesthet ic, etc.: "The mood is the thing If you're drunk, then morbidity i the result. If kid brother annoys you, then it's satire and sarcasm. If it's love, then sentimentality and mush are the results." Humorous, romantic, or realistic, it makes no difference. Fred swings a mean pen and has tried his hand at all of them. So far, Shakespeare seems secure unless the following written in a very light vein and a much weaker moment, changes your perturbed mind. It's called "Owed to the Dentists" and is dedicated to tomorrow's tooth whackers. "Oh! Please don't hurt me, ow! O' Doc! I'd much rather take a sock Than stand for you to drill my teeth And choke me so I cannot breathe." The patient is supposed to say Ah, Me—ln The Spring, Etc. PI KAPPA ALPHA DREAM GIRL — Florence George, beautiful Chicago Civic Opera singer who makes her screen debut in Paramount's "College Swing," has just been selected by the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity as its Dream Girl for 1938. The selection was announced by D. R. Oertel, secretary of the 1938 convention committee. Miss George will serve as hostess to the convention when it meets in Los Angeles next August. She is an Alpha Delta Pi of Wittenberg College. Irish-Scotch Lass Celebrates Birthday On St. Pats Feast By Ham Avegno A swell "gal" named Pat celebrated her 19th birthday this St. Pat's day, and according to various and sundry sources, our ever-smiling celebrant has carved quite a niche for herself as a friend to all, a superb pianist, a fluent journalist, a brilliant scholar, and a smiling senior. Without the usual three guesses, you'll say Patricia Chastant of music school fame and be as right as Roosevelt was when he defeated the Literary Digest. Pat's part Scotch, she admits reluctantly but there's nary a son of Erin who wouldn't be proud to call her sister. As a journalist and outstanding Marooner, staff members know her best. The personality kid with the million dollar smile and the disposition that pleases. That's Pat, through and through. Ask her numerous friends, if you're dubiously inclined and they'll chirp "most assuredly so," quicker than Jesse Owens flashes the century dash. Otherwise, such worldrfameCl musical personalities as Josef Hofman, Nino Martini, Lily Pons, Jose Iturbi, and Harold Bauer wouldn't have succumbed to being interviewed by a pestering college kid with big time ideas. But P'at did so, and the celebrities liked it too. Quite significant is the fact that likeable Miss Chastant is one of the few members of The Maroon who can boast of serving three years under three different editors, Earl Wegmann, Barney Ghio and present chief, Brown. With no apologies to Robert Ripley, Pat's of a very coinciden- Aiken Speaks On Co-ops At Club Meeting History of British Cooperatives Outlined By Guest Lecturer "The cooperative movement has now become big business," it was stated by Gayle Aiken, Jr., forwarding agent of the Gayle Aiken company, in a lecture Monday night before members of the Commerce club. Mr. Aiken, who proved to be an authority on the subject of cooperatives, pointed out that the entire community of Nova Scotia, with its poor streets, demoralized citizenry, and the deplorable state of their only industry, fishing, was really a black picture, until the priests of St. Francis Xavier university came upon the scene. They taught the people of Nova Scotia cooperation. "Today," said Aiken, "they have schools, electric lights, good streets, and above all they have spirit." The lecturer continued with a DR. LAPHAN SPEAKS AT THETA BETA MEET Dr. Maxwell R. Laphan, assistant professor of Obstetrics at Tulane university, spoke on A Biological Test for the Diagnosis of Pregnancy, in a lecture sponsored by Theta Beta, national honorary biological society, last night in Room 204 of Bobet hall. Rabbits were used by Dr. Laphan in demonstrating the lecture. This was the sixth in the current series being conducted by Theta Bta. Refreshments were served f.fter the lecture. News Bureau Being Planned By University To Act As Publicity Medium For Dispensing Information On All Loyola Activities But Intercollegiate Sports MANAGER AND STAFF TO BE NAMED SOON Will Keep Information of All Organizations On File;( Groups Requested to Fur- ' nish Needed Reports To provide a central office for the collection and distribution of news concerning campus and all university activities, Loyola will establish a news bureau, it was revealed Wednesday by the Rev. F. L. Janssen,, S. J., faculty director of extra-curricular activities."It has been the intention of Father Gaudin since last year to. begin such a department. He has ordered that we begin work immediately towards the organization of it," Father Janssen asserted.The bureau will act as a medium of publicity by dispensing information concerning extra-curricular, scholastic and athletic activities on the campus. Regarding athletics, the bureau will not cover the intercollegiate contests which are under the jurisdiction of the atlhletic department. It will merely publicize intramural games and minor sports not covered by the department. In connection with extra-curricular activities the bureau will aid the regular correspondents on the daily newspapers, as well as furnishing The Maroon with accurate information not covered by the publication's staff. In other words, the news bureau, which will have an office in Marquette hall, will serve as a central office for all news events, both future and past. According to a plan for the organization of such an office submitted by Verdun R. Daste, news editor of The Maroon, the new office will keep on file accurate recorda of the activities, purposes, planned events and their dates of all organizations and departments of the university. It will furnish publicity to the college publications of other institutions engaging in contests with groups from Loyola. It will also secure similar information concerning the engaged university's team, which information will be relayed to The Maroon staff for publication in that paper and to the daily news- (Continued on page 4) OTIS HALL STUDENTS PROMISED NEW ROOM The Alumnae of Loyola will furnish the new recreation room to be opened in the future for the students of Otis hall, it was announced by Fanny Fitzwilliam, president, at the executive meeting of the organization, held Sunday. Miss Fitzwilliam also announced that the Rev. Karl Maring, S.J., and Coach Larry Mullins had been invited to attend the meeting Sunday, which will be followed by an inspection of the new room. Student Council: Me, I'm standing in favor of the annual popularity contest.And the majority of the student body wants it, too. A few fellows might have made a burlesque out of it last year, but several years ago it was carried on with dignity and a lot of fun. And we can put it over again this year. I mean with dignity and fun. ME (Continued on page 4) (Continued on page 4) (Continued on page 4) POP CONTEST , Do you want to have the annual student popularity content this year?
