THE MAROON DEVOTED TO THE INTERESTS OF LOYOLA UNIVERSITY VOL. 1 NEW ORLEANS, LA., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15th, 1923 No. 2 WOLVES OUTPLAY DOCTORS IN GREAT SCORELESS TIE (G. Moore) Loyola's Wolves won the hearts of New Orleans fans and the respect of the entire South when in the greatest battle that has been seen on a local gridiron in many a year, they outplayed Tennessee's undefeated Doctors in a 0-0 tie. For the first time in three years, the powerful Tennessee backs failed to cross an opponent's goal, and only several cruel bits of fortune for the Wolves saved them from their first defeat in that length of time. Pitted against a team that outweighed them, battling against odds that seemed insurmountable, those Wolves waged a battle that will go down as one of the greatest achievements in Loyola's football history. It was heart-rending to see those warriors deprived of a touchdown by a costly fumble after completely outplaying the highly touted Medics from Memphis. But that cruel break was more than atoned for by the thrill which the Wolves gave every Loyola supporter when they stood with their backs to the goal and repelled every mighty charge of the Tennessee backs, who had not been stopped in three hard seasons. That picture of Phil White, candidate for an All-American berth, hitting a banked up line and instead of going forward, shooting upward, will live vividly in Loyola's memory forever. Unable to gain through the impregnible line of the Wolves, White shot a long pass to Leake who raced to Loyola's nine-yard line in the last quarter. Three off tackle lunges by Sam Raines, former Washington and Lee star, and Doc Sanders, who starred for the Texas Aggies in their victory over Centre two years ago, put the ball on Loyola's one-yard line and set the scene for White's mighty but futile plunge. Harold Winling inscribed his name among Loyola's immortals vith the greatest exhibition of football that has been displayed by any back here this season. In every play, cutting down interference, backing up the line, gaining with brilliant plunging and running and topping it all with a masterful exhibition of punting, Winling stood out over a great squad of football players, Saturday. One of the most spectacular plays of the game was worked by the Loyola fullback in the final quarter. On a fake kick formation he tore around left end and raced down the field for 70 yards before being downed. Winling' was called back 35 yards by Umpire Maloney, who claimed that he stepped out of bounds. The umpire, who was not near the Loyola back, seemed alone in his claim that Winling had stepped out of bounds. Head linesman Schwartz, who followed Winling down the line, seems the one who should have ruled on the play and Schwartz, backed up by numerous others on the side lines, stated chat the Loyola back did not step out. Dances Entertain Students of Loyola (Geo. C. Schoenberger) "Man! just listen to that band!" "Say, Tom, introduce me to that girl you were just dancing with." These and many other such outbursts could be heard at the Loyola gym on the nights of Saturday, November 3 and November 10, as a happy, laughing, swaying crowd of joyful youths kept time to the throbbing music of the pulsating strains of jazz. The first of these two delightful entertainments was given by the Prelaw class and marked the formal opening of the gym which will be the scene of a series of such gatherings throughout the entire scholastic year. A fine crowd was present—in fact, just the right sized crowd—just enough to make the dance a success and not so many as to make the hall crowded. The Owls furnished the music and, believe me, they sure can "hoot." They kept up the pep and life of the crowd until the very last step and every one left saying he had the time of his life. The second dance was sponsored by the Student Organization of the Academic department and, like first, was a huge success. This time king jazz was served by the Humpty Dumpties, and from the keen music they played and the clever antics that they go through in producing it, there is no wonder as to how they earn their name. One thing that was noticed by all was the congenial sociability of the gatherings at both dances. There was a most select crowd present, being composed of the college set and their friends. The football players of the varsity and Freshmen squads, as well as those of the visiting team, were entertained as guests at both dances. CENTENARY MAY PLAY LOYOLA ON DECEMBER 10 (Gar. Moore) A chance for Loyola to obtain national recognition may come early in December if negotiations for a game with Bo McMillan's strong Centenary team are completed. Centenary's fine showing in the East where they held Boston College to two touchdowns as well as the great of the Gentlemen, has made them well known wherever football is played. Loyola athletic authorities have been dickering for a game with Centenary for a good while, and as The Maroon goes to press, there is a strong probability that the contest will be played here around December 10. Loyola's scoreless tie with the Tennessee Doctors, who defeated Centenary last season 14-0, has placed them in a position where they will be favored to revenge the defeat handed the last s -ason by the Gentlemen. Freshmen Put Up Game Fight But Lose to L. S. U. (G. P. Crane) On Saturday, November 3, the L. S. U. Freshmen defeated the Loyola Freshmen by the score of 13-0. The game was a preliminary to the Loyola- Dallas contest and rivalled the latter in interest. For three quarters it was nip and tuck with neither team having the advantage. During that time neither team threatened the other, fighting desperately when they were forced back within their 20-yard line. The game was played in a light rain which marred an otherwise beautiful game. The condition of the field after a few minutes of play necessitated straight football throughout. The Wolf Pups realized that a victory over the Baby Tigers would efface the defeats in the other two games, and from the opening whistle they fought determinately. Were it not for the breaks of the game and the brilliant work of Freeman, the Freshmen might have obtained a draw. The last quarter opened with the ball in the Tigers' possession in their own territory. Three attempts resulted in a five-yard gain, placing the ball on the Tigers' 40-yard line. Freeman was called back to punt. The punt was partially blocked by "Maggie" Clark, the ball bounding towards the Pups' goal. L. S. U. recovered the ball and play was started in the middle of the field. Twice more the punt was blocked, once by Molony and again by Clark and recovered by L. S. U. The ball was now on the 30-yard line. Freeman was called back to the fullback position and on his eight consecutive bucks he carried it over for a touchdown. A pass for the extra point was successful. The Freshmen chose to kick. Advancing the ball by bucks and short forward passes, the Tigers gained the yellow jackets' 20-yard line. • A long pass to an open end resulted in the second touchdown. The try for the extra point failed. Freeman was the outstanding star of the game. His playing while at tackle was excellent and his work in the backfield turned the tide of battle. Jimmy Woulfe, Johnny Holmes and Harry Kinsella played well for the Pups. A. D. Smith's punting was of the highest order. THIRD SUNDAY STUDENTS' MASS AT EIGHT O'CLOCK On Sunday morning at 8 o'clock, there will be mass and general Communion for Loyola students. All the departments are urged to be 100 per cent present. The sermon will be preached by Rev. J. M. Walsh, S.J. The Cafeteria will provide breakfast after mass for those who so desire. Officers of Four Departments Meet (Phil Clark) The officers ot the various classes of the Arts and Science, Dental, Law and Pharmacy departments of Loyola University, as also the members of the staff of The Maroon, the Law Journal and the Dental Journal, met Thursday, November 8 at 9 p. m. for the purpose of discussing various topics of interest to the whole student body of the University. Mr. Guilbeau, president of the Senior Law Class, was appointed temporary chairman, and upon his calling for nominations of a permanent chairman. Mr. Strickland, president of the Senior Dental class was called upon to take the chair. Upon request of the chairman, Mr. Janssen, S.J., faculty advisor of The Maroon and of the Student Organization of the Arts and Science department, announced that a request had been "made by members of all the departments of the University to publish a Loyola Year Book, and suggested that a committee composed o trbers of every department, be appointed to discuss the ways and means of getting up this big publication. He also explained the aims and purposes of The Maroon, which is the official Loyola University newspaper, and said that every effort was being made to raise it from a four to an eight-page issue. He also suggested that a student council be formed which would preside over all studiactivities common to all the departmc,. of the University, without destroying or interfering in the least with any of the existing separate department organizations or frats. These several suggestions were at once submitted for discussion and after due deliberation the following motions were made and seconded and adopted unanimously by officers present : 1. That a committee of law students meet a committee of the Dental, Pharmacy and Arts and Science departments on Monday, November 12 at 9 ,p. m., for the purpose of discussing ways and means of getting up a Loyola Year Book. 2. That the officers of the Law department call a meeting of the night students and the officers of the other departments, of the day students, for the purpose of inquiring into the pleasure of the student body as to the formation of a student council to preside over all student activities of interest to all the departments, and for these same officers to inform one another of the-outcome of those meetings. No formal motion was proposed about The Maroon; this would have been quite useless, as most of the departments had already signified their willingness to co-operate with the staff of The Maroon by subscribing to it and by their contributions of articles. Mr. Greenberg, president of the Pre- Legal class, then made a motion that the Loyola Student Organization hire (Continued on Page 2, Col. 3.) (Continued on Page 4, Col. 3.) A name! A name! Half a Kingdom for a name—to the Year Book.
