The Maroon VOL. VIII LOYOLA UNIVERSITY, NEW ORLEANS, LA., FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1929 No. 2 FORENSIC SOCIETY MAY BEGIN SERIES OF CLASS DEBATES Oulliber Elected President At First Meeting of Present Year Plans for the holding of an interclass debating tournament-during the present year were discussed at the first meeting of the Loyola Debating Society, which was held last Friday morning at 11 o'clock in Marquette Hall. The suggestion was presented at the meeting and was the subject of much discussion. If favorably agreed upon at the next meeting, Loyola will have debates this year between the various classes in a somewhat similar arrangement of schedule to that used in intra-mural football and basketball. Prior to the discussion, the annual elections of the society were held with the usual amount of competition and enthusiasm. John A. Oulliber was chosen president of the forensic group for the coing year. Oulliber is a Thespian and is a member of the Maroon rtoff and of the * otball and basketball squads. Robert \. Ainsworth, Jr., editor of the Loyola Wolf, was elected vice-president, and Bentley Byrnes and Alden Echezebal were named secretary and treasurer respectively. All four officers are members of the freshman Law class, Byrnes being its president, and Oullber its treasurer. Several intercollegiate debates are pending between Loyola and forensic teams of the North and East. Ripon College of Ripon, Wisconsin, and Oklahoma Baptist University of Shawnee, Oklahoa, will probably be again challenged by the local team. These two universities were the opponents of Loyola in the debates held last year and both were defeated on the subject of trial by jury. Besides these events, it is probable that several other engagements will be secured, notably one with Loyola of Chicago. The northern Loyola is cnotemplating a forensic tour in the South, and have already expressed their desire to meet the local university in New Orleans. The arrangements of debates for the present year are being taken care of by Father Ruggeri, Loyola Activity Director. Seniors Will Receive Class Rings Before Xmas Members of the Senior class will receive their class rings shortly prior to the Christmas holidays, according to a statement of Bentley Byrnes, secretary of the Arts and Science graduating class, who is chairman of the ring committee. The rings of this year's class will be of standard design, of heavy gold with either ruby or garnet stones, depending on the choice of the student. The degree of the graduate and the class numerals will be engraved on either side, while the university seal will occupy the center. The class rings are being manufactured this year by the Charles Elliot Company of Philadelphia, the same firm which produced the rings for the senior class of last year. STUDENT ACTIVITY BOARD TO BE INSTALLED AT UNIVERSITY A Student Activity Board is to be t formed at Loyola this year, accord- ] ing to an announcement of Rev. W. T. Ruggeri, S. J., regent of the College of Arts and Science and Student Activity Director of the university. This board will be organized in order to avoid conflict in entertainments and events between the various organizations, and also to guarantee | ! the proper financing of the smaller] societies. The board will consist of Father Ruggeri, who will serve as faculty advisor, and the president of each of the university organizations. The ; tentative list of the societies which will make up the board are: the Thespians, Glee Club, Le Cercle Francais, Spanish Club, Debating Society and the Loyola Band. Presidents of these organizations who will automatically become members of the board include: Francis Achee, Henry Oulliber, John Oulliber, and Hamil Cupero. The presidents of the Thes- j pians and the French Club, who have ! ! not as yet been selected, wiil'coin-. j plete the organization. WOLF Staff Has Been Completed By Addition of Several New Members The staff for the Loyola Wolf has 'oeen completed after a discussion between Fr. Ruggeri, faculty advisor for the publication, and the editors. The new members who have been appointed to fill the vacant positions are: Carl Buchmann, contributing editor; Rene Nicaud, sports; Skelly Wright, fraternities; Mahon Fraleigh, dentistry representative, and George Leppert, Arts and Sciences representative. The business staff will consist of Donald Blanchard and Kalil Sliman. Annan and Babin will be I the staff cartoonists. As has already | been announced, Bob Ainsworth, | freshman law student, has been appointed editor, and Paul Azar, a junior in the Arts and Science department was chosen assistant editor. The editor wishes to make it unlerstood that these appointments are only tentative, insofar as that anyone failing to manifest his determilation to work will be immediately Iropped from the staff and his posiion filled by someone else. With his view in mind, it will be necessary io have a supply of reserves on hand, n the event that some of the members of the staff should fail to measure up to the standard of cooperation that is expected of him. Those who would like to try out for positions, and who feel that they understand the work, are requested to get in touch with Ainsworth. Pins will be' awarded to the staff members at the end of the year. The board of editors, under the guidance of the faculty advisor, will judge those who are deemed worthy of receiving pins. Only those upon whom this board votes upon favorably will be rewarded. NOTED ECONOMIST ADDRESSES LOYOLA COMMERCE GROUP Walter Parker Speaks on Community Leadership to Students Walter Parker, economist for the local office of Fenner and Beane, | brokers, addressed the students of | the Commerce Department in a lec] ture delivered in Marquette Auditorium last Friday morning at 11 o'clock. This lecture was the first of a series of practical discussions by prominent busines men of the city which have been arranged by Professor Jolin Connor, Ph.D., head of the school of commerce. Mr. Parker explained to the stuj dents that a new science of business [ is necessary, and that old and obsolete methods will no longer secure results in the commercial field. "In active competition in the business world, the alert firm will secure the j patronage and he p of the public, and ! every alert firm is looking for the leaner, the man 'who Will lirect, the; man who will control the switch so that the cogs may work in harmony," explained Mr. Parker. The speaker further related that the most fertile field for development and potential wealth today is Latin- America. These vast territories of unknown wealth offer a golden opportunity to the young man of business, providing there is real leadership and ambition to grasp the opportunity. Mr. Parker concluded his talk by praising the admirable situation of New Orleans for trade between our country and Lati-America and for its favorable opportunities for the student of commerce.

Earl Bailey, Ernest Thayer and John Mc-! Givney appeared on the Saenger stage in conjunction with Loyola night, and rendered a selection written especially for the occasion by Wesley Lord, writer of several popular songs and organist at the Saenger. The number made a direct hit with the audience and particularly with the students. The quartet was accompanied by Francis Achee at the piano. The first meeting of the year was held at the Oklahoma Ranch last Monday. Fr. Ruggeri, the faculty advisor, could not be present because of urgent business matters. In his absence the direction and supervision of the club was temporarily taken! over by Francis Achee, who was pres- [ ident of the society last year.
