U.S. Commerce Head To Address May Candidates Cabinet Member Has Impressive Record; In Public Service Since Turn of Century SELECTION CONFIRMS RUMOR OF 3 WEEKS Monsignor W. J. Nold, of Dallas, Will Give Sermon At Baccalaureate- Exercises The Hon. Daniel C. Roper, United States Secretary of Commerce, Washington, D. C., will deliver the commencement address at the final graduation ceremonies, Monday, May 30, at Municipal auditorium. Announcement of his acceptance was made yesterday by the Very Rev. Harold A. Gaudin, S. J., president of the university, who, now in Houston, Texas, wired the news to Loyola. This confirmed a rumor several weeks old that the Secretary of Commerce would address the spring graduates. Mgr. Nold to Speak Speaker for the baccalaureate exercises will be the Very Rev. Monsignor Wendelin J. Nold, D. D., assistant pastor of the cathedral at Dallas, Texas, Father Gaudin also anounced. The May commencement exercises will be held in the large portion of the auditorium, and not in the concert section as in former years, the Rev. P. A. Roy, S. J., dean of faculties, announced Wednesday."This new arrangement is necessary because of the large number of graduates this year," he said. Mr. Roper, a cabinet member under President Roosevelt in the capacity of commerce head of the nation, is one of America's leading statisticians, author of two books and numerous magazine articles. He has been in the public service since 1895, serving in numerous executive capacities. He is particularly famous for his work in developing and enforcing a plan for collecting cotton statistics by a count at frequent intervals during harvesting of the number of bales turned out at southern ginneries, through the Cotton Statistics Section Bureau of Manufacturers Census Bureau.

Mission Crusaders Visit Bug House' But Return Unscathed By Jack Ricau "We're going to the bug house," chorused the eager band of Mis- sion Crusaders who motored to Jackson, La., last Saturday for a visit to the State Insane Asylum, Many forlorn friends of the ad- venturers saw us depart as though never to return again. But, be- lieve it or not, every man who made the journey returned to tell the tale! The two automobiles laden with 10 Crusaders arrived at the large, white-columned asylum, situated on a slightly sloping hill, shortly before noon. Following closely on the heels of Father Ray we were immediately ushered into the pres- ence of Dr. Eugene Ayo. He assigned to us a guide, who instructed us to remove our coata, and to unbutton our collars, so as not to appear conspicuous.
