THE MAROON DEVOTED TO THE INTERESTS OF LOYOLA UNIVERSITY VOL 1 NEW ORLEANS, LA., FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1924 No. 7 FATHER CUMMINGS ADDRESSES SOCIETY Three Requisites of Intellectual Training Explained By Father Provincial. The last meeting of the Sodality was made quite a memorable occasion when the Sodalists were honored by an address by the Reverend Father Cummings, late president of Loyola, and recently appointed as head of the Southern Province. Father Cummings' address was more or less a farewell talk to the students and he expressed his pleasure that his parting words should be to the members of the Sodality, whom he considers to be the pick of the student body. Father Cummings' talk had to do with the requisites of a good university. These requisites arc three-fold said Father Cummings and to be a really good institution a school must fully meet every one of them. The first of these requisites is the physical, and is embodied in the buildings and the equipment that arc necessary for the proper demonstrations and experiments in the laboratories and classrooms. These buildings must furnish a real inspiration in the work of transmitting knowledge and must also be the last word in efficiency of construction and be perfectly adapted to the work for which they were designed. The second requisite is the intellectual training that is received by the students during their sojourn at their school. This training must consist not merely of an encyclopedic knowledge of the various branches of learning, but must also train the minds of the students in such a way that they will be ready to solve many of the baffling problems that face us in everyday life; men who can hold their own any where and under any circumstances that they might chance to be placed; men who will be leaders in their community in whatever paths that they should choose as their walk of life. However, their is still a third requisite. The moral training; the training of the will and the stiffening of the backbone to make real Christian men out of every Alumnus that receives his diploma or certificate. This is the essential requisite that makes for real true honest-to-goodness citizens whose actions will ever be the right and the honorable thing. Citizens who will make a mark upon the history of the world that will outlast the shifting sands of time and which will stand as an eternal monument ever proclaiming his greatness. Father Cummings then showed the shallowness and the vain glory of these earthly things, showed their extremely transient nature and contrasted them to the things of the soul—the things that were really worth while and showed that where the one was but a hollow bubble and would soon burst, the other was an invaluable treasure that could not be destroyed by any powers of the earth. Father Cummings then demonstrated how admirably Loyola met each and every one of the requisites that he had outlined. He showed that the buildings and equipment at Loyola are of the highest possible standard and that the building now under construction is even to surpass, if that were possible, those that are already in use. He showed how the Loyola quadrangle of buildings on the avenue is one of the greatest show places of the city and the wonder and admiration of all who visited the city. As for the second requirement that goes without question. For the Jesuit Fathers arc noted the whole world over for their wonderful brilliance and learning and their marvelous power of transmitting their knowledge to others not so fortunate as themselves. The accomplishment of the third requisite has ever been the chief aim and pur- COLLEGE SOPHS HOLD BANQUET Fifteen Second Year Men Attend Get-Together Affair.

President of the Sophomore class; Paul Bailey, Vice President; Joseph Dardis, Treasurer, and several other members of the class including K.

GLEE CLUB ANNOUNCES DATES On Saturday night, March Ist, the Loyola Glee Club will make its initial appearance before the public in a Musical Entertainment to be given in the Loyola auditorium at 8:15 p. m. This announcement should be heralded with joy by the many friends of the (.lee Club who have followed its career thru the many difficulties and trials that have beset its path. It marks the first milestone in the brief existence of the club and will, we hope, be a good omen of the many musical treats they have in store for us. While the entertainment which has been drawn up by the management includes numbers by professional musicians, the Loyola Glee Club will feature the night with choice quartettes and choruses. Among the ten numbers scheduled for the night, four will be distinctive creations of the Glee Club. They are: Meyerbeer Van Dunk H. R. Bishop (A rousing opening chorus.) Dear Old Pal of Mine _ Rice (Always a favorite of music lovers.) Doan' Ye Cry Mali Honey - Noll (A tender, loving Negro lullaby, rendered by alternate quartette and chorus.)Swing Along (A catchy, swinging, effective chorus.) On the program, too, are included numbers by several proficient musicians, friends of Loyola, who are ever eager to sec Loyola advance and to whom we arc deeply indebted. A general admission of 75c will be charged for the entertainment, while students of the university can procure tickets for 50c. These tickets can be obtained either at the Dean's office, or from any member of the Glee Club. "Be loyal to Loyola" by helping along this worthy cause. Her Glee Club is YOURS. See that it is treated by you as such, and that it gets all the support it deserves. LADIES AUXILIARY MARQUETTE ASS'N At the monthly meeting which was held on Tuesday, February sth, at Louise C. Thomas Hall, Loyola University, the annual election of officers took place. The following members were elected: Miss L. Delßondio President Mrs. J. D. Bloom Cor. Sect'y. Miss Mary A. Walsh Treasurer Mrs. Jos. McCloskcy Ist Vice-Prcs. Mrs. Jack Douglas 2nd Yice-Pres. Mrs. T. O. Nocholls 3rd Vice-Pres. Mrs. H. B. McCloskey 4th Vice-Pres. This was the last meeting of the Ladies Marquette Auxiliary Association which Rev. E. A. Cummings, S.J., former President of Loyola University and now Provincial of the New Orleans Province of the Society of Jesus, attended in his official capacity. The members of the association feel deeply the loss which they sustained in having to deprive themselves of the hearty cooperation which he so unstintingly gave them during all the years he has been connected with the association. J A just appreciation of the work he has done can only be made when one considers that during his regime the membership of the association increased from 35 to 438 active members. Before the close of the meeting. Rev, Fr. Cummings praised all the members for the whole-hearted loyalty which they have shown at all times to the cause of the university. He encouraged them and asked them all to work in unison till they would have reached their goal of an enrollment of 1.000 active members. Among other things Rev. Fr. Cummings expressed the desire that the work of beautifying the grounds of the university under the auspices of the Ladies Auxiliary Marquette Association should be continued, a work which was undertaken by them and has been conducted so far with admirable success. The members in turn expressed their thanks to Rev. Fr. Cummings for his untiring and continued efforts in aiding the association to acquire its present high standard. INTEREST IN AQUINAS CLUB MEETINGS IS FAST GROWING The last two meetings of the Aquinas Club, section of the Sodality of the Blessed Virgin, held recently, showed ! an encouraging growth of interest. Little had some realized that such valuable information and enjoyable moments were attached to this new enterprise of Loyola's. Perhaps some had had the notion that they were merely gatherings at which so-called "dry" subjects were expounded. Instead, they found out, that these meetings were an assembly of "regular fellows" getting together occasionally with numerous purposes in view. First of all, the Aquinas Club was organized to enable the students to discuss questions of universal interest, in order to make them more in keeping with the standards of university students. However, these meetings have served other great purposes. They fulfill a long felt need of bringing these students on closer intimate terms and afford at the same time delightful and instructive entertainment. The last two programs were unusually interesting. The first had for topic of discussion, "Do Catholics owe Civil Allegiance to Rome?" and the second, "Is the Church Opposed to Masonry?" These questions were discussed in forms of debates, with two YEAR BOOK PLANS COMPLETED AT SPECIAL MEETING OF COMMITTEE Efforts United to Assure Publication of Proposed Annual; "The Wolf" Chosen As New Name. It was an active gathering of Loyola students that went into consultation with Rev. Father Sullivan, Dean of Loyola University, on Sunday, February 10, I°J4. The incentive which brought about this consultation was the realization that Loyola's rapid growth warrants the issuing of an annual in keeping with other university functions. Furthermore, it is the wish of every Loyola student as attested by the unanimous response given the mention of this undertaking. Therefore, the situation stood thus; Loyola should have a Year Hook, the students of Loyola are strongly and unanimously in favor of the Year Rook and promise their moral and financial support. The conclusion naturally was: Unite the efforts of the students in obtaining their wish and in giving to Loyola its deserved new step in its upward inarch. With this idea predominant in the minds of all the committeemen, the meeting went into session. Father Sullivan clearly expressed bis wish that an undertaking of this nature should be sponsored by the students and that his action would be merely advisory. He expressed his appreciation of the enthusiasm evidenced in the meeting and assured all that he would at all times lend his support in the capacity of advisor towards the success of the undertaking. Realizing immediately the value of this support, the meeting asked the Dean to submit his plan of procedure. Having been in correspondence with one of the principal printing concerns of the country, he was able to give valuable information regarding the cost of the Year Book, the cover design, forms, etc. Reasonable terms have already been submitted by this concern and it was decided to obtain a contract from them, comprising these terms. The meeting next proceeded to outline the work that could be begun awaiting a reply from the printing company. The question of an appropriate name and cover design was immediately advanced. A number of good suggestions were offered and their merits were tried. Though no final name and design was adopted, the meeting seemed inclined to the name "The Wolf" and the design, the bead of a wolf stamped over the seal of the university. Of course the cover would be in Maroon and Gold, the colors of Loyola. "The Wolf," since Loyola's latest athletic activities, had become so popular that it would present an appropriate name for the annual, was the belief of everyone at the meeting. The design, according to the samples of other similar Year Book designs, would be very attractive. Next came the work of determining the size of the publication and its division into the numerous departments at Loyola. Considering the short time in which the Book had to be turned out, it was generally agreed that it would have to be limited this year to about two hundred pages. These pages are to be distributed among the various departments such as, the Faculty and Adminstration, the different classes of every department, clubs and organizations, publications, etc. Using as a standard a number of similar publications of other schools the number of pages for each department was tentatively distributed. It was decided that every department should prepare its forms and submit the matter for its section of the Book. This plan will enable the committee to have the complete matter ready for the printer in comparatively short time. To fulfill this proposed plan, the LAW DEBATING SOCIETY HOLDS DEBATE Participants Are From Senior Class. At a recent meeting of the Loyola '■ Debating Society a debate was held by four of the members of the Senior Law Class. Mr. Daste of the negative side was chosen as the best speaker, while Mr. Christcnberry of the Affirmative, was selected as second best. The decision of the judges was in favor of i the negative side. The subject. "Resolved that the United States should adopt a policy of F'ree Trade." offered excellent opportunity for discussion and explanation. Both sides advanced weighty arguments in favor of the side that they had undertaken to defend. The clear explanations of the question, which involves many side issues, was the feature of the debate, Some weeks ago a debate was held by the members of the Freshmen class on a subject which is of equal prominence. "Resolved that the United States Government should assume control and operate the Railroads of this country," was the question as stated by the affirmative side. The decision of the judges was in favor of the negative side, although the affirmatives were handicapped by the absence of one of their colleagues. It is quite interesting to note, that on that same night a debate was held in one of the colleges on the same subject and that the decision was granted to the affirmative side. The Society is planning other interesting debates to take place in the near future. In the meantime some very interesting discussions arc being held at the society's meetings, which take ■place every Thursday night in the Junior class room at 9 o'clock. SOPHS DENTAL PLANNING BANQUET The Sophomores of the Dental college are to give a get-together banquet at the Roosevelt hotel, Saturday, February 23rd. It is a yearly event of the class, and as usual extensive preparations are beitiK made. J. A. Conicaux, Jr., President and \V. M. N'icaud. Vice-President of the class are in charge of the arrangements and promised the class to give them a run for their money, for when these gentlemen put their heads together you can bet your bottom dollar that there is something rich ahead. The last year banquet given by this class was an event long remembered, but this year's banquet will be arranged that none will be expected to remember all that will take place. Among those that will be present will be: Xorbert E. Perret, Payton R. Tunstall, Francis J. Harrison, Oscar K. Mayo, Victor E. Stassi, Wally M. Nicaud, Joe J. Tuminello. V. Li. Rccio, and Jas. A.
