THE MAROON DEVOTED TO THE INTERESTS OF LOYOLA UNIVERSITY VOL I NEW ORLEANS, LA., WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19, 1924 No. 9 FATHER TWELLMEYER APPOINTED NEW PRESIDENT OF LOYOLA New Rector Admirably Suited for Post; Formerly President of Springhill College, Mobile, Ala. The long and anxious wait of all connected with Loyola for the appointment of the new president was more than repaid when it was announced that the Reverend Father F. X. Twellmcyer had been named for the position.Father Twellmcyer is a man excellently suited lor the position. His great natural brilliance and his keen interest in all the affairs of a university and it-, studenta together with his wonderful reputation for organization and executive ability combine to make linn a man perfectly fitted for the office to which he has just been assigned.Besides all these other qualifications Father Twellmcyer is a native of the Southland and a true and faithful Son of Dixie, and consequently is thoroughly in sympathy with Southern uhals and comprehensive of Southern temperaments. Both his father and his uncle fought under the "Stars and liars" in the Great Civil War. His uncle laid down his life for the Lost Cause when he was killed in the siege of Port Gibson. His father was in Pemberton's army at Yicksburg and was taken prisoner when Grant captured the city. Father Twellmcyer was born in Yazoo City, Mississippi in June. 1866. He was educated in the primary schools iif his home town and then went to St. Mary's Kansas (Tom Playfair's School) for his college education. In 1885 he completed his college course and joined tin- Jesuit Order making hi-- Novitiate at Florissant, Missouri. After two years of literary Studies at St. Stanislaus College at Macon. Georgia, he made this Philosophy at Grand Coteau. where he was especially distinguished for his marvelous brilliance and clearness of perception in delving into the abstruse questions of that great and intricate science. For five years after this he taught Belles-lettres and Philosophy at Springhill where he made a great name for himself as an educator of the highest calibre. Then after four years of Theology at Woodstock, Maryland, the greatest day of his life came when he was ordained to the priesthood by the Right Reverend James Cardinal Gibbons, June, 1900. He then spent one year in ascetical pursuits under the guidance of the famous bather O'Brien Pardow. From this time on. Father Twcllmeyer's life is a series of one executive position after another. First he was vice-president of Springhill College of Mobile, which office he held for five years; then he was made prefect of studies and discipline at Jesuit's College in New Orleans. Here he remained only one year. Springhill needed him again and thither he was sent once more, this time as the President of the institution that he had served before as vice-president. It was in this capacity that Father Twellmcyer showed his true genius. During bis administration occurred that disastrous fire that almost swept Springhill from the face of the earth and to Father Twellmcyer fell the stupendous task of reconstruction. How well he accomplished his undertaking can best be judged by the high position of prominence that the institution later enjoyed. It was while Father Twellmcyer was president that the new era in athletics was inaugurated at Springhill when the first visiting team was brought to Mobile to compete with the college team and from that start Springhill rapidly rose to a paramount position in the athletic circles of the South. LOYOLA FOOTBALL SCHEDULE FOR '24 IS FINALLY CLOSED Centenary to Play Wolves in Shreveport.

Dunbar and Mr. Lester llebert. LIVELY MEETING HELD BY AQUINAS CLUB Eloquence was the order of the evening at Loyola University on Tuesday. March 11th. when the Aquinas Club of the Sodality of the Blessed Virgin convened to discuss a topic of tin- day. The question under consideration was one that interested everyone present ; it was whether or not the first chapter of Genesis was contradicted by the discoveries of Science? The affirmative side which had as its object of proof that Science did not contradict the first chapter of Genesis, was upheld by Messrs. Dardis and Novel, while the negative was de fended by Messrs. Schoenberger and Barker. Mr. Dardis opened the discussion with a speech which would have donehonor to anyone, both for the excellent logic it contained as well as its superb diction. He proved that the term "day" used in Genesis is synonomous with epoch or period because the Hebrew word "yom", from which it is derived, does not mean day in our acceptation of the term, but is the term used for period or epoch of time. He. likewise, demonstrated beyond contention that Moses, the Biblical writer of Genesis, could have written the account of the creation of the Universe in an ideal style and not in the chronological order of events. Mr. Novel in his cosmogony made it clear to his hearers that Creation considered in the chronological order is not contradicted by Science. Very elaborately did he expound the Nebula Hypothesis and illustrated to his listeners that Creation was in accordance with it and not at all contradicted by it. To Mr. Novel fell most of the task of refuting the auguments advanced by the negative side and became out of the conflict with flying colors. The negative side had. indeed, a difficult time of it. A great amount of credit is due to them for the persistency with which they endeavored to break' through the proof of the affirmative side. After firing shot after shot at their opponents, and every one of these losing its force upon the i:n-penetrable,ELECTION TO BE HELD IN FOUR DEPARTMENTS DURING COMING WEEK Students to Fill Twelve Offices By Ballot on Friday, March 21st Rules Governing Election.

FIRST BASEBALL PRACTICE BRINGS OUT LARGE SQUAD Seven Candidates to Form Powerful Battery for Wolves. First baseball practice held in the Loyola Stadium brought out about twenty candidates who give promise of developing into one of the best college diamond squads in the South. L'nder the direction of Coach Bruce Hayes, who is reckoned as the best college baseball mentor in this part of the country, the Wolves spent the past week In light practice in preparation for the stiff schedule which lies before them during the next couple of months. Although the baseball schedule is not complete, series have been arranged with Mississippi College, Springhill, Ole Miss and St. Stanislaus. Several other schools will be added to the diamond program before long. Among the squad which greeted Coach Hayes for the opening workout were: Bob Dunbar, "Rabbit" Hebert, Leonard Toups, Harold Winling, Luigi D'Antoni, Jimmy Vbrhoff, Gibby Gibson, Bill Smith. A. D. Smith, Hughie Rogers, Lee Novo, Ernest Jeanmard, Prejean, Gendron, Bob Courtney, Borro laic. Johnny Unsworth, Kind Rive, Jerry Glas. Jimmie Woulfe, and Lastie Broussard. Dunbar. Toups, Rogers. Jeanmard and Vossbein constitute what is regarded as the best college pitching stall in the South, while Babiiigton and Broussard are excellent receivers, The infield will probably be composed of D'Antoni at first; Yorhoff, Hebert, Courtney, Rive, and Bill Smith will probably divide the other three infield positions between them. In the outfield, Coach Hayes has Harold Winling, Gibson, Borrodale, A. D. Smith, (Jnsworth, Gendron. and several others who have shown exceptional ability.
