Butt Honored At Banquet On Silver Jubilee At Loyola Over 800 persons turned out to honor the Rev. Joseph A. Butt, S.J., at the testimonial dinner given him Tuesday night in the Maroon Room of the Jung Hotel in commemoration of his 25 years of service to Loyola. State Senator Robert A. Ainsworth, Jr., principal speaker, extolled Father Butt as "a man of great and good heart." "Never has one man meant so much to so many," Sen- ator Ainsworth said, pointing out the work done by Fr. Butt in selflessly aiding students, not only during their school days but also in post-graduation life. "This outstanding success in material accomplishments can be directly attributed, I believe, to the high plane of spiritual life maintained by him. His spiritual life has pro Tided him with the necessary courage and fortitude to overcome all obstacles."Senator Ainsworth added that Fr. Butt, as a priest, has exemplified the high ideals of the Society of Jesus, thus presenting students a goal for which to strive. "We in the business world sometimes are frustrated in our search for worldly success. Many of us, in this bitter struggle become preoccupied, and lose sight of the spiritual goals of life. In the sense of spiritual goals, it might be said that we sometimes forget to touch first base," the Senator continued. '•Our Lord has taught us: Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's and to God the things that are God's.' We men in the world always remember to serve Caesar whole-heartedly but unfortunately we sometimes forget to serve God in the same way." Here, he pointed out, is where Fr. Butt has really stood out. "He has been a tower of strength to all of us. With his example before us, we cannot forget for long that we must serve God as well as Caesar." By way of illustrating the Loyola educator's ceaseless aid to students, Dr. John V. Connor, dean of Loyola's business college, declared, "There's scarcely a person in this room who's not personally indebted to Father Butt for a job or other favor." The Very Rev. A. William Crandell, S.J., Southern Jesuit Provincial, thanked the large assem. blage for honoring a fellow Jesuit and said "we rejoice with Father Butt in this fine tribute." Rev. Anthony C. O'Flynn, S.J., dean of students, extended congratulations and thanks on behalf of Loyola University. Dr. Robert W. French, dean of the Tulane University college of commerce, acclaimed the competitive talents of Father Butt's "one-man placement bureau." A Marian Year trip to Europe scheduled for this summer, and a scholarship in his name to Loyola's college of business administration were among gifts presented the Loyola priest.
