A. towards UDyola fir 1927, and wi-hinn to complete its football schedule, Fr. Sullivan. Charles Denechaud and Pred Walker went to Jacksonville to attend the sessions CDf the Southern Conference, December 1. - and 3. The Loyola delegation was received in a very friendly spirit by the officials. Walker met many • f the coaches who are friends of his. especially, McGuigan of Vanderbilt. l''r. Sullivan presented Loyola's scholastic and athletic -tatu- to President Sanborn of the Conference. The Gremillion case was fully diicussed. The president said that the Conference wished to end a former ruling regarding eligibility of athletes on varsity team-. According to the former ruling i the Conference a player who had played varsity football at a college where the freshman rule was not in tone might continue to play three years after the said rule would become effective at his school. The operation of this old rule was in the opinion of the C inference a neverending cause of difficulties. Therefore at the Jacksonville meeting this month it was decreed that the former rule would cease immediately and he replaced by a new rule. namely, that three years only would lie allowed to an athlete on a varsity team. Loyola, having pledged itsell last year to abide by the rule-, of the S nthcm Conference, accepted tin- new ruling. As a result. Gremillion and A. lD Smith, who were eligible for another year on the Wolf team by the former rule, arc now disbarred for the future. In regard to games with Conference teams. Coach Walker announces that prospect- arc bright f r a meeting between the Wolves and old Miss at Loyola field. Nearly All Pictures Are Taken for Annual The Wolf has been forging steadily ahead. Practically every one of the class pictures have been taken and those feu which still remain will he photographed in a few days. The faculty has already faced the camera, which completes another phase of the task. A big feature of the Wolf is the "shots" of the footlDall games. They portray more vividly than anything else the life and dash of the entire team. Among the many pictures two are to be especially remembered. They are the holding of Baylor ;ii the two yard line and a' wonderful flash of "Bucky' Moore twisting through the Detroit line. A few warnings have been issued by the editor of the Wolf. They should produce instant results and not be futile remarks. All frats who do not forward their pictures will incur the danger of being omitted from the year hook. Likewise, all Juniors and Seniors who do not hand in their fees will he left S. I. A. A. LIFTS BAN PLACED ON LOYOLA DURING LAST YEAR Association Held That Moore, Ritchey and Cotten Were Professionals. At the annual meeting of the S. I. A. A. held in Birmingham, December 11-12. tin' executives lifted the ban against Loyola which they had pul on the University last year. In consequence of this rehabilitation Loyola can now book games with anj member of the S. I. A. A. The outlawing of Loyola by tin. Association was decreed last year because tin- S. 1. A. A. alleged thai Loyola had an ineligible player on tin, team, Grcmillton, ami that Moon-. Ritchey and Cotten were ]Dr: feasionals. To nullify these charges aD well as to bring aboul a friendlier attitude on tin, part of the S. I. V A. toward Loyola. Fγ. Sullivan ami Charles Denechaud, attorney ami member of tin- athletic council, attended tin- meeting. Denechaud produced affidavit- which quashed the charges of professionalism. Thr Gremillion accusation automatic-ally ceased to have any bearing on the matter since tin decision of the S. 1. C. at Jacksonville, where Fr. Sullivan asked for an opinion on the case. President Sanborn of the S. I. I", -aid it was the will hi tin C nference to rule that only three year- are allowed t" any -Indent in varsity athletics. This new rule revoke- the former permission, namely, that an athlete might play three years after the freshman rule waadopted by hi- school.

Those students ot Loyola who -eels the pathway to success would do well not to overlook the faculty of memory. The honorable Judge W. 11. Byrnes, of the night law department, in one of his recent lectures, pointed out that the success of Mr. Roscoc Pound, dean of the Harvard Law School, and one of the most eminent lawyer- in the country, i- largely attributable to his remarkable development of memory. Mr. round, -aid the in one of his interview-, gave as his prime reason for hi- success the fact that he had in early youth applied himself assiduously to the improvement of his memory, He states, further, that as a hoy. he was possessed of very weak eyes, and hecame determined to -pare them as much a- possible. Prom this determination evolved the idea that he would never read any article or lessor more than once. A- a natural conse quence, his memory was brought into prominent play, and like the English writer. Macaiilay. he became possessed of a prodigious memory, Judge Byrnes further illustrated and cited how Mr. Pound during a tour of England was persuaded, contrary to intentions, to lecture at Cambridge and at Oxford, anil though he had left his note- and series of lecture- in America. nevertheless, he delivered the lecturein a most excellent manner. It was later found, in examining hi- lecture-. that Mr. Pound, who had cited numerous authorities during the course of hi- lectures at Cambridge, had made Only tun errors, both of which were due to the fact that the figures in the lectures were blurred. I he necessity of memory in law. as "ell as in other professions, ha- always been stressed by Judge Byrnes, and this example of memory set by Mr Roscoe Pound is only one of the many which from time to time the judge ha- called to the attention of the students.

SEISMIC STATION INTERESTS CITY AS WELL AS STUDENTS Father Abell Writes Interesting Article in Local Paper on Seismograph. The seismograph of Loyola has been a machine of much interest, not only to the students, Inn also to the city at It has recorded all the major earthquake) since it* installation in 1»1CD. but beyond this, little has been known of the instrument. To remedy this Father Abell has written a most interesting article which was published in i m of the daily papers. Father Abell, in prefacing hiD article. traces the seismograph to an earl) beginning. As long ago aD 136 years before the coming of Christ, he says, a Chinese coppersmith beat out oi .1 lump of copper the first seismograph. In tile interior of a hollow globe was concealed a pendelum which was tree t , move in the cardinal and in the tour intermediate directions. Corresponding to these directions eight dragons' heads appeared upon the outer surface and within the throat of each »;i. a -mall ball which could be made to fall by the pendulum into the upturned mouth of a frog upon the northwest DiCle 1 the globe caught the ball, the Dhock was known to come from the southeast. The learned Jesuit continues in the description of the seismograph. The "steady point." that iD Domc mass which will remain at rest while everything ar und it iD in motion, is a huge maDD (if cast iron weighing about 200 pounds. It is shaped like a clock pendulum with nearly all the weight at one end. This mass is so nicely balanced that it ran be moved by the breath of a child. However, earth tremors leave it undisturbed. From the center of percussion n! tin- steady point, two thrust rods at straight angles t 1 each other are extended. To each ol these is attached a delicately poised aluminum pen, The end of each reDts upon a Iohl; strip iD! sooted paper tixid to ;i ilowl] revolving drum. As the sooted paper iD slowly moved beneath the pens a thin white line appears. AD a rule the white trace iD perfectly straight except for the minute marks eleven millemeters apart.
