Harold A. Gaudin, S.J., president of the university. The four professors, who were awarded keys and honorary membership in the Commerce club of Loyola for distinguished services rendered to the university, were Henry J. Miller, Max Neumaier, Arthur Hayes and Lloyd Mistrot. The Italian ambassador'and his party were first welcomed, prior to the convocation, by representatives of the university in the president's suite, after which the party walked over to Holy Name auditorium; here they were met by the entire convocation body amidst the music of the band, which played the processional march, followed by the Italian na-, tional song and the Star Spangled Banner.

Assure Success Of Class Dance J Success of the Junior-Senior Ball scheduled for commencement night in the Tulane room of the Jung hotel is assured, John F. Screen, chairman of the ball committee, asserted Wednesday. "The pledges to pay class dues, which were distributed throughout the university earlier in the week have caused some misunderstanding but this has been cleared up," declared Screen. A sufficient number of pledges were necessary to underwrite, expenses before any contracts could be signed, he pointed out. This early payment of dues is necessary to meet expenses which may fall due before the date of the ball. The signing of the pledges was required by the Rev. F. L. Janssen, S.J., to insure the university against any possible loss. Screen also announced that those who did not sign pledges are still eligible to attend the ball and they may pay their dues either before or after May 1.
