NEW BOOKS ARE ADDED TO STUDENT LIBRARY Several additions of new books have been made to the Loyola library, according to an announcement of Mrs. Marcy, librarian. "Up to Now," the autobiography of the former governor of New York, Alfred E. Smith, is probably one of our most valuable acquirements.

These first sittings were scheduled to take place last Monday but had to be postponed. Mr. Varenholt, the photographer, sprained his back so seriously that he was unable to be here on the i day appointed. Fraternity pictures will be taken on all nights during next week. Each fraternity will have a specified time to be present. Since promptness in this part of the work will result in a large discount, it is advantageous to have these pictures completed as soon as possible. Although many pictures were taken yesterday, there are still many more. Those who have not paid their money and received their received their receipt should do so immediately. At a recent meeting, the editor thanked the staff for the enthusiastic co-operation they have accorded him thus far. As an added impetus, staff pins bave been promised to those who fulfill* their duties faithfully. DIRECTOR Holds Meeting of Glee Club; Predicts Successful Season Professor Paul Jacobs, who has undertaken the task of organizing and directing the Loyola Glee Club assembled the club for its first meeting under his guidance last Monday night in the band room. Mr. Guy Bernard, a musician and a pianist of note, accompanied the members on the piano. Father Ruggeri, who is faculty advisor for the organization, introduced the members to the new director, who immediately took charge of them. In his short opening talk, Mr. Jacobs assured the members that work in the Glee Club would not be without its reward. He is already planning a banquet for the end of the year. Besides this, he has in view many out of town trips to neighboring towns. In acordance with Father Rugerri's plan that the club should begin its present year on an entirely reorganized basis, Mr. Jacobs subjected both the old members as well as the aspirants to membership to a rigid test. Being an excellent tenor himself, he was well pleased with the material which has been given him to mold. He predicted a successful year provided all the members are loyal in attending meetings. Since he is constantly approached with requests for banquets and entertainments, it will be an easy matter for him to procure many public engagements for his charges. The election of officers which was to have taken place Friday was postponed on account of the unavoidable absence of some of the members. It will probably be held at the next regular meeting. LOYOLA DEBATERS TO MEET WYOMING AND BAYLOR HERE Local Team to Tour Oklahoma and Debate Baptists At Shawnee The Loyola Debating team will engago in several intersectional contests this year, according to an announcement of Rev. W. T. Ruggeri, S. J., Student Activity Director of the university. The schedule of home debates which will take place in Marquette auditorium, includes forensic engagements with the University of Wyoming, Loyola of Chicago and Baylor University of Waco, Texas. These teams have gathered an enviable reputation in their tours about the country and will afford the local team with adequate competition during the coming season. Loyola of Chicago, in particular is noted for its formidable forensic team, which was very successful on a tour of the eastern states last year, when they discussed the subject of trial by jury. Probably the longest journey ever attempted by the opponents of a southern team will be the tour that will carry the University of Wyoming to New Orleans. This team is rated among the best in debating circles of the Pacific coast. The local debaters will also make a tour of Oklahoma and Kansas and while on this journey will meet the University of Oklahoma at Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Baptist university at Shawnee, and one other opponent to be scheduled later. This contest with Oklahoma Baptist university will be one of the most important of the year. Last year, Loyola defeated the Oklahomans on the subject of jury trial, after the Baptists had won the championship of the states of Oklahoma and Kansas. A return debate, to be staged at Shawnee, Oklahoma, was sought by A. L. Brandon, Baptist coach, and was agreed to by Loyola authorities. The dates for the local engagements have been tentatively set, but final arrangements have not as yet been completed. The date of the Loyola departure on the forensic tour and the personnel of the team will be announced in the next few weeks, after a contest has been completed to ascertain the Loyola representatives in the various debates. Student Council To Hold Gym Dance Next Friday The second Student Council dance of the year will be held next Friday night, November 15, at 9 P. M., in the Loyola gymnasium. An excellent orchestra has been secured and Council members anticipate an evening of successful entertainment. The admission, as announced by the Council, is one dollar a couple, while stag tickets can be purchased for seventy-five cents. The financial returns from this dance, as well as from the other Council events, will be used to defray the expenses of building tennis courts on the university campus. Tickets can be secured at any time from members of the Student Council.
