Alumni Aim is to Acquaint Grads with Activities of Alma Mater In conjunction with a plan proposed by the Very Rev. Harold A. Gaudin, S.J., president of the university, this issue of The Maroon, student publication, is dedicated to the alumni of Loyola, according to an announcement by James E. Brown, editor-in-chief. The primary purpose of this issue is to present all former grads with a knowledge of what is being done in the university and by the alumni organization at the present time, in order to stimulate greater interest among them, with regard to the activities of their alma mater. It is Father Gaudin's plan to set aside an issue of The Maroon, at various times during the year, for news concerning each department of the university. This is the second issue of this kind, the first one, dedicated to the pharmacy school, having been presented a few weeks ago. Martin Burke, '36, recently appointed editor of Men of the South, alumni publication gathered most of the Alumni news found in this issue. This alumni issue will be the final special edition of the current school session. Issues, which will be dedicated to the other departments of the university, will be presented during the 1938-39 school session.

Tovaritch Cast Set For 2nd French Drama Le Cercle Francais Players To Present Russian Theme At Holy Name Starring George Malochee, sophomore arts and sciences student, and Emma Couret, special student, Le Cercle Francais' four-act French comedy, Tovaritch, will ce presented Wednesday and Thursday nights at 8 o'clock in Holy Name auditorium. This is the second production of Le Cercle for this year. The play, though all in French, has a Russian theme. The setting is Parisian. It tells the story of a deposed royal couple of Russian aristocracy, who, living in the slums of Paris, are custodians of four billion francs placed in their care by the former czar of Russia. These two characters, played by Malochee and Miss Couret, are given a chance to lend the money to the Bank of France and thus enrich themselves. They refuse because of their loyalty to Russia ; and by refusing they assur complete poverty, foj they have no money of their own left to live upon. They secure positions as house servants in the home of a member of the House of Deputies, where they meet with representatives of their former royal family now in Russian power, in what i* perhaps the most interesting and complex part of the play. It is here, the climax, where Mikail and his wife give their four billion francs to Gorotchenko, George Medaille, to save the starving Russian people. The complicated situation then unravels itself; romantic difficulties are solved, and the royal couple re turns to happiness and prosperity, but not to Russia. Other characters in the production, which was written by Jacques Deval and is under the direction of Mr. William C. Couret, are, Sidney de Armas, Marie-Louise Roper, Emile de Armas, Lucile Bodet, Gerard Michel, Melanie Cassou, William Klause, Lucie Amalie Olivier, Marie Charvet, Beryl Rabouin and Harold Buchler.May Luncheon of Alumni Called Off There will be no alumni luncheon during May because of the party for the senior class, it was announced by Temple Black, president.The schedule of the meetings for the rest of the year is as follows: Tuesday, June 14, July 12, August 6, September 13, October 11, November 8, December 13.
