The LOYOLAN-1925 • >E2«HDg3§»£!i= 



HE second annual year-book of Loyola Uni- 
versity is presented to the faculty and students 
of the school as an improvement over the initial 
volume and as a sincere effort to chronicle completely 
the activity of the university year, 1924-25 and to go 
farther in establishing the LOYOLAN as a permanent 
feature of the university life. 

Again there may be shortcomings, omissions, and 
failings in this book, but in the light of difficulties 
they should be understood. The industry of a staff 
through a whole year of work must vouch for the 
serious and sincere purpose behind this undertaking, 
and, appreciating this, the readers of The 1925 
LOYOLAN will be able to find here a creditable and 
commendable record of a twelve-months' progress 
and achievement.

OR the second time The Lovolan 
presents itself to the students, alumni 
^M_ and friends of Loyola University, 
this time as a mirrored retrospect of the 
year 1924-1925. Its hope is that its pur- 
pose to reproduce in miniature the variant 
phases of school activity has been suffi- 
ciently well done to enable the reader pleas- 
antly to realize the microscopic character of 
university life and to interest him or her 
more deeply and unselfishly in the aims 
and efforts of Loyola.

5 The LOYOLAN-1925 : 

Father Marquette 

The Marquette Celebration 

The first of June, in the year of Our Lord 1637, no doubt dawned and sank 
into obscurity as usual for the prosperous burghers and townsmen of old Laon, 
yet, all unknown to them, on that day an event had taken place that would be 
fraught with consequences that would rank as important as those of any other 
act that had taken place before in this historic old French town on the Ardon. 
Laon, successive stronghold of Caesar and Merovingian, birthplace of saints 
and generals, dam alike of doughty citizens and haughty prelate, was yet again 



[Page 17] 

} The LOYOLAN-1925 

to justify the importance so apparent to all from Hugh Capet to Henry of 
Navarre. For on that day was born Jacques Marquette. 

Of Marquette's ancestry not much is known. That they were of an old 
and noble family, gentlemen and with the "right to bear arms," is certain, but 
that they were particularly distinguished among the multitudinous seignory of the 
day is not borne out by any easily ascertained evidence of the day. They were 
of a class most nearly corresponding to the present English gentry, neither 
noted for special ability or exalted position, nor notorious for the foibles and 
idiocies that consort with power and pelf. 

Marquette's father has left no impress upon history. All we know is 
that he was a judge, and, so, to depict him we must turn to his heroic son and 
by combined stress of imagination and invocation of the laws of heredity deter- 
mine for ourselves what manner of man he was. Thus, we may safely vouch for 
the goodness and probity of his life, not only because of his relationship to his son, 
but because history, jade scandalmonger that she is, has left his bones in peace 
and his reputation in that grateful obscurity to which she most frequently 
relegates the good. Again invoking the imagination, and not too romantically, 
we hope, we can picture him as a good husband and father, a man not too 
lavishly endowed with wealth and a brilliance of intellect ; in short, he may be 
considered as a prototype of the average man whose talents find their expression 
in the rearing of a family and in the means necessary to their upkeep, rather 
than in the phantom and elusive pages of fame. 

Of Marquette's mother there exists a paucity of material as great as any 
imaginative artist could wish. She was related to John Baptist De la Salle, 
and like her husband it would appear she lavished her gifts upon her family 
and in contradistinction to what seems a strong feminine fashion in France, 
kept neither salon nor exotic animals. Rather were her energies bent upon the 
rearing of her children in the God-fearing fashion that once was the wont 
throughout the world. In Marquette, no doubt, exists the most perfect reflection 
of his mother's pure and devout character. 

That Marquette's later life was due to the influence of his childhood is 
sufficiently apparent to defy contradiction. Reared in such surroundings as he 
was, undoubtedly the boy's attention must have been early fastened upon 
religion ; the example of such a father and the love of a mother like his could 
scarcely do less. It must have been in his childhood, too, that the loving 
presence of his earthly mother told him of another mother among whose champions 
he would soon enroll. 

The time of this enrollment was soon to come. Not alone father and mother 
reminded him of things other than those of this earth ; Laon itself was a perpetual 
testimonial to God and religion. From here, in the fifth century, had gone 
St. Remigius to baptize Clovis ; later, a constant succession of lay and clerical 
had extended the practice of religion so that churches and abbeys dotted the 
town, and it had become the second most important see in France, possessing 
a cathedral that even now ranks among the foremost in the glorious field of 
Gothic perfection. 

Small wonder it was, that on his seventeenth birthday Marquette left, not 
attired in hauberk or cuirass to fight an earthly fight, but to don the funereal 
robes denoting earthly abnegation and enlistment under the crucifix in the company 
of Jesus, then in its comparative youth. 

For twelve years Marquette remained in Europe. The first part of this 
period he spent in the novitiate, that soul-searching and soul-trying assay that 
determines the chosen of those called. Then strengthened and confirmed in his 
resolve, he spent many more years in study, marking time as some might say,

but in reality, girding and strengthening himself for his threefold enemy, the 
world, the flesh and the devil. Finally his years of toil and struggle were at 
end and he received the accolade of his Heavenly Captain, "a priest forever after 
the order of Melchisidech." 

A period of teaching ensued, but not in the classroom was Marquette's spirit 
to be contented. Always of a sickly and delicate constitution, more adapted 
to the life of the recluse and student than that of the vigorous men he envied, 
nevertheless, he yearned for the missionary field. He knew what awaited him : 
hardship, privation, a return to the primeval, almost ; he knew what he must 
be prepared to meet: the Iroquois, sworn enemies of France ever since their

first encounter with Frenchmen ; possible martyrdom did not deter him, nor 
the thought of fiendish torture, even though he knew of Jogues, so fearfully 
maimed and mangled that he was forced to return to Europe to gain a papal 
dispensation to use again his torn fingers in the Divine sacrifice, before he 
should go back and to die a martyr and a man of almost supernatural calm 
in the flames of an Iroquois building; Xavier, dying desolately on the bleak coast 
of Japan, served not to repel him but to attract him to the never-ceasing duel 
in which souls were the stake. Thus he strained every effort to be sent to New 
France and a grave from whence his spirit, contrary to the procedure of this life, 
would walk the paths of glory- spurned by his eager feet, while he was alive 
and treading the paths pointed out by his Master. 

At last his wish to be a missionary was granted and Marquette obtained the 
permission of his superiors to take up the work he so ardentlv desired. Thus,

in 1666 he set forth for New France. The voyage took over three months — a 
hardship well comparable to any present-day voyage of exploration whin we 
can contrast traveling conditions of that day with those that now prevail on 
the floating cities that cross the Atlantic in less than a week. 

Finally the arduous and monotonous voyage was over ; Marquette was on the 
threshold of a new life. He took up his quarters in Quebec, the seat of both 
French and Catholic power in the New World. Here he applied himself dili- 
gently to the study of the Indian dialect, a task, in those prenatal days of 
philology and multitudinous textbooks, enough to discourage even the stoutest 
heart. For two years, until 1668, under the able tuition of Father Druillettes, 
Marquette continued his labors, and so well had he worked in preparing his 
tools for his forthcoming ventures, that within a few years he was master of 
six of the barbarous tongues. 

The Mayor's Committee and the Students Who Enacted the 
Marquette Journey, December, 1924 

In 1668 he was appointed to his first mission, among the Ottawas. The 
result of this appointment was the founding of a mission at Sault Ste. Marie, 
the first in what is now Michigan. Here he remained until September, 1669, 
when he was transferred to La Pointe. 

It is during the time of his mission at La Pointe that we get the first hint 
of the future labors that were to immortalize him. In a letter to the Superior of 
the Missions he speaks of the uphill work in trying to learn the language of the 
Illinois among whom it had been settled he was later to establish a mission. In 
another letter he speaks of the Illinois Indians coming to the mission, who had to 
cross "a great river which is nearly a league in width, flows from north to 
south, and to such a distance that the Illinois, who do not know what a canoe 
is, have not yet heard any mention of its mouth." He continues to speak of 
this river farther along in the letter : "It is hard to believe that that great river 

[Page 211

discharges its waters in Virginia, and we think rather that is has its mouth 
in California. If the savages who promise to make me a canoe do not break 
their word to me, we shall explore this river as far as we can. . . . We shall 
visit the nations dwelling there, in order to open these passages to such of our 
Fathers as have been awaiting this good fortune for so long a time. This 
discovery will give us a full knowledge either of the South Sea or of the Western 

However, the time for this enterprise was to be put off for some time. 
The Sioux, the "Iroquois of the North," who seem to have been the Ishmaels 
of that day, were at war with everybody and danger threatened the Upper Lakes. 
The Hurons and Ottawas who comprised Marquette's parishioners feared to be 
actively embroiled in the possible conflict and determined upon migration as 
the solution of their difficulty. The Ottawas went to Manitoulin and the Hurons 
to Michilimackinac, better known as the world-famed summer resort, Mackinac 
Island. Here nature had exerted herself tremendously and a prodigal display 
of beauty was the result. In the latter part of 1670 the Jesuit Dablon had 
founded a mission there — the famous St. Ignace, now commemorated bv a 
peninsula on the mainland. Hither Marquette removed to attend to the wants 
of his Huron flock. 

Sixteen hundred and seventy-one is the generally accepted date for Marquette's 
change to St. Ignace, where he remained for over a year. His time was well 
occupied, what with taking care of the temporal needs of his people as well as 
reminding them of the existence of spiritual ones. To instill ideas of gentleness 
and forgiveness into the hearts of these warriors, cruel and 1 vindictive, was 
hard ; to make them believe in a faith that could surpass their savage, yet 
admirable stoicism was a task worthy of Paul. Despite these discouraging 
features of his work, Marquette persevered, founding a college at St. Ignace. 
the only one west of New England. However, the time of deliverance was at 
hand; not, however, thatt Marquette felt or desired that he should leave his 
labors, or that they were unwelcome. 

In 1672 Louis Joliet arrived at Michilimackinac. Joliet was the son of an 
artisan and a former aspirant to the priesthood, having received the tonsure 
and minor orders at seventeen. Later, however, he gave up his idea of being 
a cleric and turned, instead, to fur-trading. Here he made a success and was 
chosen to be the one who should advance the fleur-de-lis southward. Marquette 
was to be his companion. 

Marquette's journal is eloquent on the fulfillment of his hopes and he speaks 
thus about Joliet's arrival : 

"The day of the Immaculate Conception of the Holy Virgin, whom I had 
continually invoked, since I came to this country of the Ottawas, to obtain from 
God the favor of being enabled to visit the nations on the river Mississippi — 
this very day was precisely that on which M. Joliet arrived with orders from 
Count Frontenac, our governor; and from M. Talon, our intendent, to go with 
me on this discovery. I was all the more delighted at this good news, because 
I saw my plans about to be accomplished, and found myself in the happy 
necessity of exposing my life for the salvation of all these tribes ; and especially 
of the Illinois, who, when I was at Point St. Esprit, had begged me very 
earnestly to bring the word of God among them." 

Joliet remained with Marquette through the winter, discussing ways and 
means for the monumental journey before them. To Joliet, the extension of 
New France was the all-importantt thing, although he did not slight the im- 
portance of a further dissemination of Christianity ; Marquette was a loyal and 
true Frenchman, but. fur him. the conversion of the natives was ten times

more important than the acquisition of new land, even though it rivaled fabulous 
Cathay. Despite this difference in aim, there was no conflict ; each recognized 
the other's province and realized the inseparability necessary for both projects 
to succeed. 

Finally all was ready on the seventeenth of May. Provisions, canoes and 
men were ready. Only one thing was to be done. "Above all," says Marquette, 
"I placed our voyage under the protection of the Holy Virgin Immaculate, 
promising that, if she granted us the favor of discovering the great river, I 
would give it the name of the Conception." This done, he set sail amid the 
acclaim of the natives. 

Their route led first along the northward shore of Lake Michigan, and this 
they followed until they came to Green Bay. Here the Fox River empties and 
it was up this stream that the travelers continued until they reached the site 
of what is now Portage, Wisconsin. On their way to this point thev had met 
many Indians, all of whom joined together to warn them of their hardihood 
in attempting a trip down the Mississippi. According to the savages, the banks 
of the river were lined by ferocious natives who killed all strangers, friendly 
or otherwise. Moreover, a dreadful demon dwelt on the banks of the river 
and his voice could be heard for miles. The white men should stav and not 
expose themselves to certain death. 

Truly a fearful array of obstacles other than natural stood in their way, 
but the French were not disheartened. Carrying their baggage and canoes they 
made the portage and arrived at the Wisconsin River. This flows in a south-

westerly direction, and in turn bore the explorers on. Marquette tells how, 
when they came to the top of the water-shed marking the line of demarcation 
between the rivers flowing- into the Great Lakes and into the Mississippi, they 
began a new devotion to the Blessed Virgin, "which we practised daily, addressing 
to her special prayers to place under her protection both our persons and the 
success of the voyage." 

Finally the Wisconsin brought them to their goal. On the seventeenth of 
June, 1673, exactly one month after their start, they entered the Mississippi. 
No recourse to Marquette's journals is needed to imagine the joy and happiness 
that overwhelmed these men. To Joliet, no doubt, came thoughts of a new empire 
in which he would be an outstanding figure. To Marquette came visions not of 
additions to an earthly kingdom but of an extension to the kingdom of Him 
Whom he served. One was right, the other was wrong, as history has shown. 

In accordance with his promise Marquette named the river "The Conception." 
That this name has not remained is an occasion of sorrow, but the expulsion 
of the French before they had made much more than a slight impression upon 
the Midwest had this effect. Sufficient it is to know that the patroness of this 
country was honored in intention at least. 

From the confluence of the two rivers the journey proceeded without a halt 
until the 25th of June. On this date, seeing evidence of the nearby presence of 
men, the party halted to investigate. The consensus of critical opinion has 
placed this spot near the Des Moines River, and hence Marquette's landing was 
made in Iowa, the first visit of the white men to this state. 

The natives, whom they encountered a short distance from the river, received 
them hospitably. The calumet was smoked and presents exchanged. A great 
feast was arranged and the travelers received the kindliest and most considerate 
attention, culminating in the gift of a calumet that combined the features of a 
signet and a talisman. Again the travelers received warnings concerning their 
undertaking, but they persevered in their intention and continued on their voyage. 

Farther down the river they came upon an evidence of Indian mythology that 
is closely similar to the familiar European legend of St. George and the Dragon. 
This was the representation of the "Thunder Bird," the excellence of which 
Marquette remarked upon and which existed well into the last century. 

The adobe of the Thunder Bird had hardly been passed when the Missouri 
came into sight. The river was in flood, trees and all manner of huge debris 
were whirling in the grasp of the muddy waters, and it might well be considered 
a dispensation of Providence that the party passed safely. 

Not far from the Missouri they came to the abode of the demon they had 
heard about. This proved to be merely an arrangement of rocks upon which 
the waters beat with such violence as to produce a horrible din which the Indians 
had construed into the voice of Beelzebub or one of his ilk. After having stopped 
to observe this, they continued and soon reached the Ohio. Near here they 
noticed large masses of iron ore, later to be worked by American colonists. 

Now several occasions arose to test the efficacy of the calumet. A short 
distance below the Ohio a tribe of apparently Iroquois origin was met. At first 
hostile, they speedily became friendlv, feasted the French royally, and, what 
was more important, told them that the sea was but ten days distant. A short 
time after they encountered an Illinois tribe who were very hostile and only 
pacified after a great display of the pipe. 

By these people they were sent downstream about ten leagues to the Quapaws, 
a Sioux tribe. Their village was probably close to the Arkansas River and near 
the spot where De Soto was buried in 1541. A very friendly reception was

accorded the voyagers and Marquette's sermon was attentively and favorably 

These natives told the travelers that they were very close to the sea. 
Believing this, which was false, and fearing the Spaniards, they then decided to 
retrace their steps, and so, on the seventeenth of July, they set forth on the 
return journey. 

They had reached almost the 33rd degree of latitude on their forward journey 
and were well down the shore of Arkansas before they started back. They had 
covered a tremendous distance in the period of two months, many days of which 
were spent among the Indian villages and, hen-ce, marked no progress toward 
their goal. Their journey had been made in the veriest of cockleshells — canoes — 
and in craft that are not known for comfort and ease. Escapes from the river 
and its denizens were, no doubt, more frequent than those mentioned, and 
still no word of either complaint or self-glorification is found in Marquette's 
journal. When we consider the ddicateness of Marquette's constitution, the 
voyage with its attendant discomforts and privations becomes an epic beside 
which an Odyssey pales into insignificance. 

Back, up the Father of Waters they paddled, toiling manfully against the 
swift and impetuous currents and vagaries of the river. The portion of Mar- 
quette's journal devoted to this stage of the journey is full of comment 
upon the nature of the country, its produce, its inhabitants and their customs.

This section of the narrative should be a veritable treasure trove for the student 
of ethnology and early American history. 

When they reached the Illinois they branched off. The Illinois country was 
the occasion of a rhapsody by Marquette in which he likens it to nothing he had 
seen on his previous voyage. The first stop in Illinois was made at Peoria Lake. 
Marquette here preached the Faith and in return received a priceless dispensation 
of Divine goodness. A dying infant was given to him for baptism and this 
duty he discharged. Of this he says : "Had this voyage resulted in the salvation 
of even one soul, I would consider all my troubles well rewarded, and I have 
reason to presume that such is the case." 

From Peoria their route led to an Indian village "called Kaskaskia, con- 
sisting of seventy-four cabins." Maruette preached so well that the Indians 
requested him to come back and establish a mission, a thing he promised to do. 

Guides from Kaskaskia accompanied the explorers onward on their journey. 
They passed by the present Joliet where they named a hill Mount Joliet in honor 
of Marquette's companion. They went down the Chicago River and were the 
first men, no doubt, to see the site of Chicago. From Chicago they skirted the 
shore of Lake Michigan, and by the end of September they had reached Green 
ay. Marquette stopped off at the Mission of St. Francis Xavier on Sturgeon 
Bay to recuperate from his arduous journey. 

From Sturgeon Bay Joliet went on to Montreal, only to be struck by mis- 
fortune hardly a day's journey from the end of his voyage. Coming down one 
of the innumerable rapids, his canoe was upset, and several of his companions 
drowned. With the canoe went the reports upon the trip and all his maps, with 
the result that only a verbal account was possible. 

Joliet was engaged upon other business soon by the government and achieved 
a fair fame and fortune. He was never again associated with Marquette, and. 
so, drops out from the account of Marquette's later work. 

Marquette's never too strong constitution had been sorely tried by the arduous 
journey and he spent a long while in recuperating. The torrid midsummer sun 
of the Mississippi and the noisome exhalations from its marshy banks, combined 
with the privations incidental to so long a trip, had conspired together with the 
result that he was racked with dysentery. Even today medicine has a hard 
struggle to combat this malady successfully and only a look at tropical mortality 
statistics shows the closeness of the fight. Considering this, then, one may 
easily imagine the intensity of the missionary's sufferings, and readily admit 
the possibility of Providence's taking, a hand in the recovery of an individual 
so debilitated as was Marquette. 

Until September of the next year, 1674, Marquette was fast in the grip of 
his malady. What time he was able to devote, he spent in writing his journal 
and in negotiating the necessary permission to return to the Illinois. 

Finally, in October of 1674, a party of fur traders arrived from Quebec, 
bringing the permission so eagerly awaited by him. After dispatching copies 
of his journal to his superior, he set forth on the twenty-fifth of October, 1674, 
with two companions, Pierre Porteret and Jacques La Castor, one of whom had 
accompanied him on his Mississippi voyage. 

The first part of the journey lay along the east shore of Green Bay as far 
as Sturgeon Cove. Hence, a most difficult portage was made through the tangled 
forest to the shore of Lake Michigan. Ten canoes made up the party, composed 
of members of the Pottawattamie and another Illinois tribe, and one may well 
think that the consolation of numbers was more than offset by the inconvenience 
of waiting for the last man and other such happenings that invariably attend 
a crowd. 

[Page 27]

It was November when they reached the lake. More than this it is unnecessary 
to say to those who know Lake Michigan ; no words are needed to tell of the 
biting winds, the turbulent waters, the driving elements and the general desola- 
tion that was the traveler's portion. The epic hardships of the previous Odyssey 
were nothing compared to those of the month spent along the western shores 
of the lake. One month it took to paddle from Green Bay to the mouth of the 
Chicago River, enough of a hardship in itself, but added to it even worse was 
to come. On the twenty-third of Xovember, while still on the Lake, a recurrence 
of Marquette's malady took place, accompanied this time by vitality-sapping 

Despite this sickness Marquette pushed on. No thought of giving up is 
apparent in his writings, and if such a thought did suggest itself, it was sternlv 
repressed. Marquette's tremendous will power was pressed into service and 
that great nervous energy, which with him took the place of strength, was called 

The Landing at Robey Street 

upon, with the result that he was able to continue his daily mass and to endure 
further traveling. 

Finally, on the fourth of December, they reached their first goal. On that 
day they sighted the "river of the portage," the Chicago, and landed. 

The point of their landing was about Madison Street, for it was here the 
river emptied prior to 1824. In that year the Fort Dearborn garrison, acting 
on instructions from the War Department, cut the present channel and gave 
over the former bed of the river to be later filled in and made part of the land 
between Wabash and Michigan Avenues. 

The reason of their landing and later building a cabin was the fact that 
the river had frozen some six inches. Hence, further progress by water was 
out of the question. Marquette's diary mentions their landing and remarks 
upon the amount of snow and the numerous tracks of wild animals and turkeys 
there, a decided contrast to the conditions of today.

From the fourth to the eleventh of December the missionary remained at 
the mouth of the river, resting and recruiting- his strength. Game was plentiful 
and the party did not lack for food. In this regard Marquette says : "During our 
stay at the entrance of the river Pierre and Jacques killed three cattle and four 
deer." In addition turkeys and a partridge also fell before the unerring aim 
of the two men, forming a bag that a Chicago sportsman of today would travel 
a week to equal. 

On the eleventh of December they continued their journey two leagues, but 
Marquette's ebbing strength forced a halt. A cabin was built and the travelers 
prepared to spend the winter. 

Historical researches, in particular those of Air. Ossion Guthrie, have fixed 
the site of Marquette's winter cabin on the north bank of the south branch of the 
Chicago River where Robey Street now intersects. The spot is marked by a 
mahogany cross and is lamentably unvisited by most Chicagoans, to whom, in 
large part, its existence is unknown. 

In this spot, then the heart of far-stretching prairies, were passed over three 
months in a way that was almost perfectly idyllic except for Marquette's sick- 
ness. Their obstreperous Indian companions left, and on the fifteenth of the 
month Marquette said the Mass of the Conception that inclement weather had 
prevented a week earlier. 

His two companions spent their time hunting and doing the necessary work 
about the cabin. Twice a week Marquette heard their confessions and gave 
them Communion. Truly a life far better than that of the present, even though 
Marquette later found fault that they were "unable to keep Lent except on Fridays 
and Saturdays." 

Their life in the cabin was not totally lonely nor did it lack for company 
of other than a copper hue. Eighteen leagues away lived two Frenchmen. One 
was a famous courcur dc bois, surnamed La Toupine, and the other a surgeon, 
about whose right to the title Parkman admits grave doubts. However, both 
were good and fervent Catholics and visits from La Toupine, whose baptismal 
name was Pierre Moreau, and the surgeon, whose name is unknown to us, were 
welcome breaks in their days of sameness. 

Due both to themselves and to the good offices of their countrymen their 
relations with the savages were most pleasant. The Frenchmen had expressed 
the fear that the missionary party would be unable to last out the winter and the 
Indians became so perturbed over this that they sought forcibly to remove them 
to their own village, and were only prevented with the greatest difficulty from 
carrying out their purpose. This will serve to show in what esteem the natives 
held' them. 

Again, another illustration of the liking of the Indians is proffered by Mar- 
quette's diarv of the twenty-sixth of January, 1675. On that day three emissaries 
of the Illinois sachems arrived, bringing with them food and skins as a present 
to the French. Their visit had an ulterior purpose, to-wit, powder, but Marquette 
encountered no trouble in refusing this request. He gave them the usual mirrors 
and beads so dear to the savage heart, and a few articles of cutlery. The Indians 
told the Father to take heart and remain with them, for they had been told he 
would live and die there with them. He expressed his intention of visiting them 
as soon as possible, and with the customary mutual protestations of esteem 
incidental to primitive intercourse, the savages took their leave. 

Marquette undoubtedly was on the tenterhooks of impatience all the time he 
was forced to remain inactive because of his sickness. A man so desirous to 
be up and doing could not help but to be galled by the compulsory inactivity he 
endured, yet in all his writings we find no railing at his fate or peevish outpourings 

[Page 29]

proceeding from a sick pen. This is indeed marvelous when we consider the pain 
and discomfort he underwent. 

In his time of sickness, as at all times in his life, his chief recourse was to 
the Blessed Virgin. Under the date of February 9th, we find in the diary- 
mention of a just completed novena to her. Marquette says that his health 
has been greatly improved and to her ascribes the credit. This was the first 
novena in Illinois, and also the first to be answered, if we consider Marquette's 
firm belief in the intervention of his Heavenly Mistress. 

The winter continued to hold undisputed sway until late in March. It was 
particularly severe on the exposed prairies and the plight of the missionary party 
could hardly have been pleasant. 

Finally, on the 25th of March, 1675, the long overdue thaw came. Game 
appeared and Pierre and Jacques obtained thirty pigeons in one day. The 28th 
was signalized by the breaking of the ice in the river and the formation of a 
floe above them. On the 29th the waters rose to such an extent as to necessitate 
a speedy exodus from the cabin. That night they spent on a hillock, with their 
goods in trees and the water almost lapping their blankets. 

The thirtieth of March saw the breaking up of the ice barrier and the libera- 
tion of the water. At last they could start after having spent nearly four months 
on the banks of the river. 

Marquette's diary of the thirty-first of March speaks of their having made 
a start on the previous 'day. Three leagues were covered and the party halted, 
since they had not come upon a portage, and since ice was still floating down the 
river which had risen twelve feet where they were. 

Strong winds delayed the party's progress on the first of April, and on the 
sixth of April we find that they are still in the same place due to the dreadful cold. 

Finally, they were able to resume their progress and completed their journey 
in eleven days from the time they set out. The distance they covered was fifty 
miles, from Chicago to what is now Utica ; the time involved is an eloquent 
witness to the inclemency of the weather and Marquette's own general condition. 

Their arrival at Kaskaskia rivaled a Caesar's entry into Rome. Father Dablon, 
Marquette's superior, says he was received as an angel from Heaven. Savage 
hospitality prostrated itself at his feet and the village was his. 

From hut to hut he passed, instructing his auditors in the mysteries and 
doctrines of the faith he professed, and receiving in return the most perfect 
attention. At length he had finished this task and now the time came for a 
general council. 

On a wide expanse of prairie nearby he set up his altar. Four large pictures 
of the Blessed Virgin were about it, visible on all sides to the wild company. 
Around this sat five hundred chiefs and elders and behind them fifteen hundred 
warriors, along with numerous women and children. The day was Holy Thurs- 
day and the scene comparable to one on Tara's hill twelve hundred years before. 

All the principal mysteries of the Catholic religion he explained to the natives 
and when this was done he celebrated Mass. In this wise was founded the Mission 
of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin, the first outpost of 
Christianity in the interior of America. 

On Easter Sunday, April 14, 1675, Marquette again said Mass and took 
possession of the land "in the name of Jesus Christ, and gave to the Mission 
the name of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin.'' 

Marquette's cup of happiness was filled to overflowing, but ere he could 
quaff it, it was dashed from his lips. He was exhausted with his sickness and 
privations, and he longed to return to St. Ignace. His end was near, and, knowing 
this, he desired to die among his brethren.

Sorrowfully he made his farewells to his affectionate people and, promising 
them their needs would be attended to, he departed laden with manifestations 
of their esteem. 

For over thirty leagues a savage escort accompanied him, whether by land 
or water is unknown. Finally Lake Michigan was reached and the savage escort 
left behind. Marquette and his two companions embarked in a canoe and the last 
voyage was begun. 

The party skirted the southern shore of the lake and proceeded slowly along 
the east side. As they advanced Marquette grew weaker ; his companions had 
to handle him as a nurse would an infant ; still, despite his weakness, he continued 
the reading of his breviary and constantly gave utterance to pious ejaculations. 

At last he realized his end was at hand and bade his companions to land. 
The spot chosen was close to the present town of Ludington and on the banks 
of the river that was to bear his name. Here they came and laid him down. 

The account of his death is best given in the words of the Jesuit Relations, 
LIX, 193-201 : 

". . . . The Father, being thus stretched on the ground in much the same 
way as was St. Francis Xavier, as he had always so passionately desired, and 
finding himself alone in the midst of these forests, for his companions were 
occupied with the disembarkation, he had leisure to repeat all the acts in which 
he had continued during these last davs. 


[Page 311 

The LOYOLAN-1925 

"His dear companions having afterwards rejoined him, all disconsolate, he 
comforted them, and inspired them with the confidence that God would take 
care of them after his death, in these new and unknown countries. He gave them 
the last instructions, thanked them for all the charities they had exercised in his 
behalf during the whole journey, and entreated pardon for the trouble that he 
had given them. He charged them to ask pardon for him also, from all our 
Fathers and brethren who live in the country of the Outaouacs. Then he 
undertook to prepare them for the sacrament of penance, which he administered 
to them for the last time. He gave them also a paper on which he had written 
all his faults since his own last confession, that they might place it in the hands 
of the Father Superior, that the latter might be enabled to pray to God for him 
in a more special manner. Finally, he promised not to forget them in Paradise. 
And, as he was very considerate, knowing that they were much fatigued with the 
hardships of the preceding days, he bade them go and take a little repose. He 
assured them that his hour was not yet so very near, and that he would awaken 
them when the time should come — as, in fact, two or three hours afterwards he 
did summon them, being ready to enter into the agony. 

"They drew near to him, and he embraced them once again, while they burst 
into tears at his feet. Then he asked them for holy water and his reliquary ; 
and having himself removed his Crucifix, which he carried always suspended 
from his neck, he placed it in the hands of one of his companions begging him to 
hold it before his eyes. They feeling that he had but a short time to live, he 
made a last effort, clasped his hands, and, with a steady and fond look upon his 
Crucifix, he uttered aloud his profession of faith, and gave thanks to the Divine 
Majesty for the great favor which He had accorded him of dying in the Society, 
of dying in it as a missionary of Jesus Christ, — and, above all, of dying in it, 
as he had always prayed, in a wretched cabin in the midst of forests and bereft 
of all human succor. 

"After that, he was silent, communing within himself with God. Never- 
theless, he let escape from time to time these words, Sustinuit anima mca in verbo 
ejus; or these, Mater Dei, memento mci — which were the last words that he 
uttered before entering his agony, which was, however, very mild and peaceful. 
"He had prayed his companions to put him in mind, when they should 
see him about to expire, to repeat frequently the names of Jesus and Mary, 
if he could not himself do so. They did as they were bidden; and, when 
they believed him to be near his end, one of them called aloud, 'Jesus, Mary.' 
The dying man repeated the words distinctly, several times ; and as if. at 
these sacred names, something presented itself to him, he suddenly raised 
his eyes above his Crucifix, holding them riveted on that object, which he 
appeared to regard with pleasure. And so, with a countenance all beaming 
and aglow, he expired without any struggle, and so gently that it might 
have been regarded as a pleasant sleep. 

"His two poor companions, shedding many tears over him, composed 
his body in the manner which he had prescribed to them. Then they car- 
ried him devoutly to burial, ringing the while the little bell as he had bidden 
them, and planted a large Cross near his grave, as a sign to passersby." 
This was the eighteenth of May, 1675. 

Slowly and sorrowfully, Marquette's faithful friends prepared to depart. 
Yet, before they left, a thing occurred that seemingly had no connection 
with this world. One of them, suffering from an internal malady as well 
as a broken heart, paid a visit to the grave and, taking some earth from 
grave to his heart, immediately felt his sickness abate and forthwith was 
made happy again.

Marquette remained in this resting place until two years later, when 
a party of Kiskakon Ottawas, previously converted to the faith by him, rev- 
erently disinterred his bones. These they carefully cleansed and put in a 
birch-bark box. Then they set out for St. Ignace. The Relations tells of their 
coming thus : 

"There were nearly thirty canoes which formed in excellent order that 
funeral procession. There were also a goodly number of Iroquois who 
united with our Algonquin savages to lend honor to the ceremonial. When 
they drew near our house, Father Nouvel. who is its superior, with Father

Year's Eve Under the Auspices of Mr.

Piercon, went out to meet them and accompanied by the Frenchmen and 
savages who were there, and having halted the procession, put the usual 
questions to them to make sure it was really the Father's body which they 
were bringing. Before conveying it to land they intoned the be Profundis 
in the presence of the thirty canoes which were still on the water, and of 
the people who were on the shore. After that the body was carried to the 
church, care being taken to observe all that the ritual appoints in such cere- 
monies. It remained exposed under the pall, all that day, which was Whit- 
monday, the 8th of June, and on the morrow, after having rendered to it 
all the funeral rites, it was lowered into a small vault in the middle of the 
church where it rests as the guardian angels of our Ottawa missions."

With the passing of French influence St. Ignace fell into ruins and Mar- 
quette's grave was lost sight of. Not until September 3rd, 1X73, was it 
located again through the efforts of the Very Reverend Edward Jacker. 
Now a small monument at the head of East Moran Bay near Point Ignace 
marks the site. 

Marquette's labor among the Illinois was continued by Father Claud 
Allouez. His work was eminently successful, due both to the memory of 
Marquette and his own efforts. He is credited with having preached the 
gospel to one hundred thousand Indians and having baptized ten thousand, 
gaining thereby the title of St. Francis Xavier of America. 

For two hundred and fifty years Marquette's memory remained the prop- 
erty, more or less, of students of history, and, vaguely, of the people at 
large. Then the long silence was broken by a series of anniversary cele- 
brations held here in Chicago. 

The first anniversary was observed in 1923. This commemorated Mar- 
quette's Mississippi trip of exploration with Joliet in 1673. 

The second and most pretentious observance of Marquette anniversaries 
was held during the past year. The purpose of this was to recall the stay 
of Marquette on the site of Chicago two hundred and fifty years ago, from 
December 4th to March 30th, 1675. 

The prime mover in this observance was Mr. Thomas A. O'Shaugnessy, 
well known as an artist, historian and writer. Mr. O'Shaugnessy secured 
the co-operation of the Chicago Lodge of the Order of Elks, whose Exalted 
Ruler, Mr. Francis Sullivan, was responsible for having obtained the inter- 
est of the Mayor, His Honor William E. Dever. Mr. O'Shaugnessy and 
Messrs. William Sinek and Samuel Rosenthal formed the Executive Com- 

An ordinance introduced by Ross A. Woodhull, Alderman from the 
Seventh Ward, was passed by the City Council and provided that Decem- 
ber 4th was to be known as Marquette Day. With the day thus set offi- 
cially, preparations went on apace for the celebration of the landing and 
visit here. 

The Association of Commerce with the aid of a committee of three hun- 
dred, appointed by the City Council at the Mayor's suggestion, promoted 
the celebration William E. Dawes, President of the Association of Com- 
merce, sent a summary of Marquette's work and an outline of the celebra- 
tion to President Coolidge, which later formed the theme of the President's 
address at the Commercial Club meeting at the Drake Hotel. 
" By order of the City Council, the Building Department built a replica 
of Marquette's hut at the Wrigley Building. The Lincoln Park Boat Club 
supplied the canoes. 

At noon on the 4th of December a canoe was paddled up to the Wrigley 
Building. In it sat three men to personify Marquette, and his two com- 
panions, whose roles were respectively filled by Edward Bremner of Loyola 
University ; Vincent Smith, president of the Chicago Yacht Club and Maries 
Miner, noted sculler. 

On the plaza awaited representatives of the Chicago Historical Society, 
the Chicago Association of Commerce, the Elks and other organizations. 
Mayor Dever was the principal speaker, who in his address asked for the 
fulfillment of Marquette's promise that his route would one day become the 
waterway from the Lakes to the Gulf. 

Credit for this phase of the observance was earned not only by those 
mentioned before but also by John J. Sloan, Commissioner of Public Works;

Charles Kalal, City Architect; Miss Lida Thomas, Secretary of the Lincoln 
Park Commissioners; D. F. Kelly, and Reverend Joseph F. Reiner, S.J., 
Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Loyola University. 

The following Loyola students took part: Edward Bremner (Father 
Marquette), John C. Duffy, John A. Conley, Henry Remien, John Simo- 
naitis, John Lane, Felix Zamiara, Peter Stanul, Joseph Tovarek, William 
Colohan, Harry Ertz and Anthony Bell. 

President Coolidge had been slated to speak at the Wrigley Building 
but the inclement weather prevented this. He stopped long enough to 
commend the copy of the hut and then proceeded. In his address before 
the Commercial Club, however, the President had more than atoned for 
his enforced silence later. Of Marquette he said among other things the fol- 
lowing: "... I like to feel that this great city owes its beginning to 
the master explorer who was first a missionary of religion. . . . Of the 
men who laid the foundations of our country he deserves his place among 
the foremost." 

By the direction of His Eminence. George Cardinal Mundelein, the arch- 
diocesan celebration was held at the Jesuit church of St. Ignatius on Sun- 
day, December 7. A solemn Pontifical Mass was celebrated. Rev. William 
H. Agnew, S.J., President of Loyola University, was celebrant; Rev. Joseph 
Reiner. S.J., Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Loyola University, 
was deacon, and Rev. Walter M. Seymour. S.J.. of Loyola Academy, was 
sub-deacon. Present in the sanctuary were Bishop Hoban and members of 
the monsignori and clergy. 

An eloquent sermon was delivered by the Reverend James J. Mertz. 
S.J., Professor of Classics, Loyola University, who pointed out in the 
course of his address not only the greatness of Marquette's work but the 
example it gives to all of a life of self-denial and love. 

Sunday evening, December 7, 1924, was the time of the observances under 
the auspices of the Illinois Catholic Historical Society. This was held in 
the assembly hall of Quigley Preparatory Seminary. The president of the 
Society, the Reverend Frederick Siedenburg, S.J., presided. 

The first speaker was Joseph J. Thompson. LL.D.. Editor of the "Illinois 
Catholic Historical Review," whose articles in that magazine have been 
invaluable in the writing of this account of Father Marquette. Mr. Thomp- 
son spoke of the early research work in matters pertaining to Marquette and 
accorded generous praise to the pioneers in this work. He also traced out 
a very interesting relationship between the early Jesuit and the University 
of St. Mary of the Lake. 

Mr. Thompson was followed by Mr. O'Shaugnessy. who spoke of the 
work necessary to prove the truth of Marquette's visit here. Next spoke 
the Honorable William E. Dever, Mayor of Chicago, who pointed out the 
greatness of Marquette in tracing the Lakes to the Gulf Waterway, a proj- 
ect dear to the Mayor's heart. 

Ouin O'Brien, noted Catholic orator, gave an eloquent oration sum- 
marizing Marquette's achievements in a quotation we do well to copy: 
"He was a man, co-equal with his fate, who did great things unconscious 
they were great." 

At the Marquette Cross on Sunday afternoon, December 14th, 1924, wa« 
observed Marquette's stay there two hundred and fifty years ago. Among 
the speakers were the Hon. John J. Johntry; Hon. Douglas Ridings, British 
Vice-Consul; M. Henri Didot, French Vice-Consul; Assistant Corporation 
Counsel Joseph J. Thompson, representing the Mayor; Dr. Otto L. Schmidt,

president of the Chicago and of the Illinois Historical Societies; Murray 
Blanchard, of the Sanitary District; and Alphonse Campion, president of La 
Mutuelle, premiere French society in America. 

The Reverend Herbert C. Noonan, S.J., president of St. Ignatius College, 
delivered the invocation and appealed for a return to the principles of Mar- 
quette's life. 

With the above observance the second anniversary was finished. During 
1925 the third anniversary will be suitably observed' 

The above celebrations were perhaps the farthest reaching manifestations 
of Marquette's fame, but the impression is not to be gained that, previous to 
this, Marquette was totally lost sight of. Bancroft said : "The people of 
the West will build his monument," and, in truth, this prophecy has been 
realized to a large extent. A river bears his name and a university in Mil- 
waukee conducted by his brethren takes a new luster from its title. Wis- 
consin, in the Hall of Fame in the Capitol at Washington, has made him 
one of her two representatives. A beautiful marble statue by the Florentine 
sculptor, Gaetano Trentanove, was the means chosen. Replecas of this statue 

The Marquette Cabin and Cross at the River's Head 

are found in Michigan, at Marquette and Mackinac, and, in addition, Detroit 
is graced by a statue of the intrepid explorer. In Illinois various monuments 
mark his halting places and one of Chicago's great boulevards bears his name. 

Marquette's memory has received much in the way of memorials and the 
like — not, indeed, however, more than or as much as he -deserves — but it is 
not on the evidence of marble or bronze that he claims a place with the 
immortals. His work among the Indians, his great voyage and his tragic, 
yet glorious, death claim more for him than ever posterity, no matter how 
generous, will ever grant. 

His work was ever that of the missionary. He loved France as only the 
voluntary exile can love his country, but his efforts never lay in the direction 
of temporal and selfish aggrandizement. Every encounter with the Indians 
was marked by the display of the Standard of Christ ; never did he seek to 
awe his people with the arrogant flaunting of a blood-soaked regal banner. 

His work and that of his companions did not have the great results they 


[Page 37] 

The LOYOLAN-1925 

wished, for Champlain's muskets in obtaining victory over the Iroquois were 
eventually and paradoxically to spell defeat for Frenchman and Jesuit at the 
hands of an implacable foe. Yet, despite this, their harvest was bounteous; 
Allouez with his ten thousand baptisms is a glorious illustration of this. 
Marquette was cut off in his prime, yet he accomplished as much as any, 
for it was due to him that the Illinois country was opened to religion and 

Considering Marquette's monumental struggles and achievements, one 
can but stand aghast. Recalling his weakened frame, one experiences a 
feeling as near worship as it is possible to give a mortal. An indomitable 
will and an heroic courage made a man fit to stand with any Roland. Added 
to this, a true spirit of religion, of devotion to his Heavenly Queen, a sublime 
disregard of self and a desire to serve to the uttermost his Lord and Leader, 
and we have a man comparable to Xavier. 

Of him, an author has said: "Marquette was a Catholic, yet he is not 
the exclusive property of that people ; he belongs alike to all. His name is 
written in the hearts of the good of every class. As an explorer he will 
live in the annals of the American people forever." ("Old and New Macki- 
nac." by Rev. J. A. Fleet, M.A.). 

As a final epitome and a worthy conclusion we might well take the words 
of Marquette's epitaph, quoted at Mackinac by Mr. Justice William R. Day, 
of the United States Supreme Court, and, thus, in a few words, sum up a 
character and life worthy of a million volumes. These words are : "He was

The Regent's Foreword 

The close of the school year 1924-1925 marks the completion of the first decade 
of the career of the Loyola University School of Medicine. The year 1915 was a 
most difficult time, and the city of Chicago a most unpropitious place tor the 
launching of a new medical school. The American Medical Association, through 
its Council on Medical Education, had attained its maximum momentum in its course 
of standardization and classification. The Council had pointed its efforts definitely 
to the reduction rather than to the increase of the number of schools, a reduction 
that was aimed especially at localities wiiere the number of existing schools was 
deemed to be in excess of what was needed. 

To this end the Council had initiated, and brought into operation, a body of 
regulations and requirements which, while aimed essentially at the substantial improve- 
ment of medical education, were also intended to make impossible the continued 
life of many existing schools. The mortality among medical schools during the period 
1915-1920 is an evidence of the power and effectiveness of the Council in trans- 
forming its long nurtured purpose into an accomplished fact. 

It is not surprising, then, that a new venture in medical schools, one, above all, 
that presumed to make its appearance in Chicago, where the three existing class 
A schools were deemed ample to meet all needs, should meet with little sympathy, 
if not with actual hostility. 

It was under such stormy conditions that Loyola came into existence and began 
its battle for recognition and for an opportunity to exert an ethical and moral 
influence in a professional field where ethical and moral principles are of the utmost 

Within this brief period of ten years Loyola University School of Medicine has 
succeeded. She enjoys the highest rating; her name is known, and favorably known, 
by the scientific men throughout the country because of the productive scholarship 
of her faculty and the good repute of her graduates; fine traditions already appear 
in the making; a spirit of emulation in scholarship and in character pervades the 
student body: applicants in excess of her facilities are seeking entrance to her courses, 
and those who have found entrance within her walls are happy in their surroundings 
because of the brotherly and homelike spirit that prevails. 

P. J. MAHAN, S.J.. Regent.

The Dean's Foreword 

The years spent in the tender nurturing arms of your Alma Mater are ending. 
The boy has grown into Man, and girl has grown into Woman. Now the Man and 
Woman, the physician and the nurse, stand upon the threshold of life. Life will 
offer you opportunities in abundance for service. Catholic ideals and true manhood 
and true womanhood have been implanted in you and fostered carefully by lesson 
and by example. Your University and Hospital have placed character first in their 
preparation of you. They have taught you principles of right thinking and right 
living that you may best fill your state of life and extend an influence for good to 

Your education has been conducted along the highest standards. A faculty, chosen 
not only because of eminence attained in the profession, but also because of the 
inspiration it would afford you, has given the instruction in the healing art. 

Authors many times and in beautiful ways have likened the garden with its flowers 
to our world with its people. Have you ever stopped to consider how striking that 
simile may be, and how forcefully its lessons may be driven home to us? In the 
garden we find flowers deriving their nutriment from the soil, from the water and 
from the air. What is their life, their purpose in life? To give of their fragrance 
and beauty that God may be honored and man's life made brighter. They give 
and continue to give until life for them is no more. But in that same garden weeds 
will grow, weeds that spread and sap their nourishment greedily from Nature. What 
does the weed give in life? Nothing. It is a troublesome plant, obstructing the 
flowers in the fulfillment of their purpose. 

To you Men and Women much has been given and from you much is expected. 
May God bless your endeavors and may you ever be a pride and honor to your Alma 
Mater, that loves you.

Class of 1926 

As Father Time stands, looking down in all his dignity, and watches the trail 
of humanity come out of the unknown, pass in review before him and lay at his 
feet their mite toward human progress, then pass on into the great beyond, he saw 
a group of about one hundred young men and women gather together in the Medical 
Buildings of Loyola University. There have been many such groups as this gathered 
together in the past, all with one common aim, to perform their mite in the greatest 
of all services to humanity, that of relieving human pain and suffering. The particular 
group which gathered there in the Fall of '22 has now become the Junior class. 
As Freshmen the intricacies of that most wonderful machine, the human body, were 
unfolded to them. The chemical phenomena that take place to keep this machine 
in perfect order were presented to them. The functions of the various parts were 
studied in the Sophomore j-ear as well as the fundamentals of disease and the 
foundation of both medical and surgical treatment. With this as a background they 
entered the clinical years. 

The clinical years mark the last lap in the preparation for their life's work. 
The transition from notebooks to clinics, from theory to practice brings them face 
to face with the responsibilities of their chosen profession and their work takes on 
a new meaning. The University has provided a building with class rooms and 
library facilities for the convenience of the upper class men, which they appreciate. 
The Clinical Faculty have added Ward Walks and Dispensary examinations to aid 
them in their quest for practical knowledge. Of all of these the present class has 
taken full advantage. 

The social life has been full and varied, each person supplying his own. There 
were a great number of smokers in the class. The big social event of the season was the 
Prom. In this the Junior Medical Class took no small part, and the support given 
it by the Medical School was excellent. 

A new organization has been founded by the Junior Class under the direction 
of Dr. B. H. Orndoff. Head of the Department of Radiology. This has been named 
The Radiotherapy' Club and has been organized so that the upper classmen may have 
an opportunity to learn something of this vast field of Medicine covered by radiation 
and physio-therapy.

To Whom It May Concern: 

We, the Class of 1925, having reached the end of our career, being of sound health of 
body, and of disposing mind and memory, do make, publish, and declare this writing to be 
our last Will and Testament, hereby revoking and making void all other testamonial writ- 
ings by us heretofore made. 

And, we do hereby direct that our funeral services shall be conducted by <mr friends 
and well-wishers — the Sisters, Doctors, Internes and Xurses. only enjoining that the funeral 

with such dignity and pomp to which our standing 

the training 

shall be carried 
school entitles us. 

We give and bequeath to the Sisters, who have been so patient and good to us during 
our training, our heartfelt thanks and best wishes for the success of the training school 
and hospital. 

To Rev. Father Collins, we leave our earnest appreciation for his fruitful guidance 
during training. 

To the Doctors, we bequeath our gratitude for help during difficulties and bearing with 
our mistakes. 

To our beloved Faculty, we give and bequeath, our vast knowledge and sparkling 
information which we have furnished from time to time in our various examination papers, 
as much of this is new to them. We hope it ma}- throw light on many unknown subjects of 
science and learning. We hope they may use this for the enlightenment of future classes, also, 

We give and bequeath to our respected Superintendent of the Hospital, a twig of forget- 
me-nots, so that when nurses are needed, the Class of 1925 will be remembered. 

We give and bequeath to our Superintendent of Nurses, all the love and blessings 
possible. This, in return for the many hours of worry and accommodation spent for us.

We devise and bequeath all the residue and remainder of our belongings, after all just 
debts and funeral expenses are paid, all the practical and fundamental knowledge as we 
may have at whatsoever time gathered and imparted, to our respected Assistant Superin- 
tendent of Nurses. This last we leave entirely at her discretion, although we very highly 
recommend it as of great value. 

To the Junior Class as a body, we will our Dignity ; all night calls, for which, if they 
have no use they may pass on to the next class; also, the novelty entitled "The Game of 
Consequences." which is most easily played in the "pit," where papers may be passed 
through cracks in the seats. We also surrender to them all of our Senior privileges, with 
such limitations as the Board may see fit to prescribe.

Noddene Hughes 

We went to Mercv, nursing bent, 

In 1922. 
We laugh now at the times we've spent 

A'try'n to leave when blue. 
We packed and cried and really meant 

But stayed, we're glad to 'tell ; 
And that's because we're very bent 

On making all folks well. 

We could not check our girlish blush 

When doctors came along. 
We didn't like the still and hush 

And nothing could pass wrong. 
We stayed on, though, and seem content 

With the tasks that on us fell. 
And that's because we're very bent 

On making all folks well. 

The time soon came for bibs and caps 
Then nursely did we feel 

We'd graduate some day, perhaps, 
We felt like nurses real. 

We knew just heaps 'bout things that cure ; 

Down on the Junior floor. 
Then services came fast — pell mell 

J, r- 

Pyramidon and pills 
And many newer things that's sure 
About a patient's ills. 

We studied hard so we could dwell 

incii sciviLtb cauie lasi — pea men 

With special ones galore. 
We learned to cook what foods are pure 

And 'bout each germ that kills 
And many newer things that's sure 

About a patient's ills. 

We felt there wasn't much to learn 

Left in the nursing line 
But, yes, there was at every turn, 

As Seniors we did find. 
We all agree our time's well spent 

Our training we wouldn't sell 
And that's because we're very bent 

On making all folks well.

Fo reword 

In many ways America is an obligarchy of lawyers, for lawyers make our laws, interpret 
them and very often execute them. Hence it is well that their training be under University 
auspices and a training determined by principle rather than by profit. To make a contribu- 
tion to such training, St. Ignatius College, nearly twenty years ago, took out a University 
charter and established its first professional school as a law school. 

The story of the School of Law of Loyola University is the prosaic one of steady growth 
in numbers, standards and influence. For a long time it followed the policy of small 
classes and cancelled registrations beyond a definite number. Only in the last few years 
has the roster gone beyond two hundred, but at the same time standards were not lost sight 
of, since the course of the Evening School was changed from three to four years and even 
the number of weeks was lengthened. The establishment of the Day School in 1921. the 
introduction of all-time professors, the admission of women and the reorganization of the 
library were steps in the same direction. 

Of late years the case-work method of study has been stressed as never before and the 
approved methods of other law schools adopted so that today the school is in every way a 
standard one and is recognized as such. 

Loyola University made one distinct contribution to the advancement of legal education 
in that it primarily influenced the Association of American Law Schools to recognize part- 
time or evening schools — a fact which the President of the Association acknowledged in a 
letter to the Regent. The School is not only a member of the Association of American 
Law Schools but is likewise accredited to the American Bar Association. 

Beginning in September, 192S, the entrance requirement for both Day and Evening 
Schools will be two years of college work and the School hopes to do its share towards even 
higher and better standards in the future.

History of the School of Law 

The School of Law of Loyola University was established in September, 1908, 
as the Lincoln College of Law. The Reverend Henry Dumbach, S.J., President 
of St. Ignatius College, appointed the Reverend Francis Cassilly, S.J., as Regent, 
and with Hon. William Dillon, Hon. Marcus Kavanagh, Hon. Patrick H. O'Donnell 
and Arnold D. McMahon, Esq., founded the School. Mr. Dillon was the first Dean 
and Mr. McMahon the first Secretary. Others on the Faculty were Hon. Michael 
F. Girten, Hon. John P. McGoorty, Mr. Michael V. Kannally, Mr. Howard O. 
Sproglc and Mr. Joseph A. Council. Among the Special Lecturers are found the 
names of Hon. Edward F. Dunne, afterwards Governor of Illinois, and Hon. Edward 
Osgood Brown, afterwards Chief Justice of the Appellate Court. 

The School opened with an enrollment of thirty students and held its first sessions 
on the twelfth floor of the Ashland Block. The next year saw the number increased 
to sixty, and in 1911 to ninety-five. To accommodate the growing student body the 
School was moved from the twelfth floor to the sixth floor in 1910. In 1914, through 
the efforts of Reverend Henry S. Spalding, S.J., Regent at that time, larger quarters 
were secured on the same floor — a real necessity, as the roll had jumped to one 
hundred and fifteen. 

Reverend Edward J. Gleason, S.J., who succeeded Father Cassilly as Regent in 
1909, introduced courses in Logic and Sociology. Reverend Frederic Siedenburg. 
S.J., relieved Father Gleason of the latter task in January, 1912, and continued in 
this capacity until the appointment in 1916 of Reverend Patrick A. Mullens, S.J., 
as Regent and Professor of Legal Ethics. 

The World War almost completely depleted the student body and not until 
1919, was a normal condition restored. In September, 1921, Reverend Frederic 
Siedenburg, S.J., was put at the head of the School and he introduced the morning 
school and made both sessions co-educational. In 1921, Mr. McMahon, who had 
been Secretary from the beginning and Acting Dean since the retirement of Dean 
Dillon in 1916, was made Dean of the School, in which capacity he served until he 
resigned in September, 1924. 

In May, 1923, and again, in May, 1925, additional rooms were acquired, until 
today the School is equipped with five large class rooms, five executive offices, and 
a completely equipped library of six thousand volumes. 

In December, 1924, the School of Law became a member .of the Association of 
American Law Schools, and in March, 1925, was admitted to the approved classification 
of the American Bar Association. This gives the School the highest possible rating. 

At present the Faculty numbers twenty, and the student body two hundred and 
thirty-five, fifty of whom are in the day school.

Historical Notes of the Day Law Class of 1925 


The senior day law class of 1925 is the second class to graduate from the 
day law school and fired the first shot of war on the ignorance of legal subjects 
on September 25, 1922. 

If one could see the freshies in their classes on that first week of school in 
September, 1922, one would see a small group of eight or nine fearful students 
spread about a legal looking room at the head of which was Arnold D. McMahon, 
dean, trying to instill into the minds before him some of the rudiments of Ele- 
mentary Law. As the students attempted to grasp those fundamental rules 
they probably had the greatest difficulty of their course. 

After having passed a year that went rapidly through its course of subjects. 
the students were thinking in the same light as students who first attempt to 
conquer Common Law Pleading — that they did not get so much out of their 
courses. However, after the second year had well run its course, the law they 
had received rather faintly in the first year came back to them in a light they 
had never seen before. 

Starting their sophomore year, a new feature had developed — coeds. The 
effect of the coeducational change was clearly shown on the students and, may 
we add, on the professors. 

In the past the social activities of the day law school were never a large item 
because there was no necessity for them to be so on account of the fact that 
the small number of students made every one feel at home with and co-ordinate 
with the other students. 

On entering the third and final year of their task the class of '25 realized 
that the day law school was no more a little informal gathering seeking knowl- 
edge but was becoming an important cog in LOYOLA UNIVERSITY. With 
the addition of the present sophomore class, the coeds, the present freshman 
class, and the larger faculty the school became a real, live institution. 

And now with graduation passed the day law class of 1925 — eleven in num- 
ber — are out on the raging and tossing sea trying to reach their desired port 
not knowing all the law but having minds which think logically and legally and 
to make themselves a credit to LOYOLA and their profession.

Class of 1926 

The past year has been a very active one for we Juniors. What with our legal 
schedule and the duty we have assumed of representing our school in all University 
activities and social functions we have had but little time to write our own praises, 
but have necessarily been content to let our actions speak for us. Needless it is to 
inform any active student that they have done so. 

Our year's activity commenced on October 20th, 1924, when our official staff, 
comprising Patrick J. Cronin, President; J. Lawrence Holleran, Vice-President; William 
J. Campbell, Secretary and Editor; and John H. Nash, Treasurer, were elected. Shortly 
thereafter the Student Council of the Law School decided we should have a banquet, 
the entertainment for which should be furnished by the student body. This meant 
that the Junior Class would assume all responsibility for its success, which it did 
under the supervision of its able chairman, J. H. Nash. Ninety per cent of the 
student entertainers were Juniors, and we had the largest attendance of any of the 

We were also well represented on the official and attendance body of the Junior 
Prom which assured its wonderful success. Our own "Skinny" Barrett represented 
our class as one of the officers of the Prom committee. 

The next event of great importance in which we figured prominently was the 
intermural basketball tournament. The majority of the players on the Law team 
were Juniors and we must all admit they made a wonderful showing. Our repre- 
sentation on the team comprised: Barrett, Goldman, Holleran, Kelly, McMahon and 

To go into detail on all of our activities for the past year would consume too 
much space so we must be content to merely touch upon those affairs of greater 
importance. It goes without saying that the present Junior Law Class remains 
staunchly loyal to its School and University as well as their Faculty, and in the 
future shall be what it has proven itself in the past — First, Last, and Always, for

Class of 1927 

When the members of this class gathered together at the Ashland Block in 
September, 1923, we little realized at that time that Loyola University was acquiring 
one of the finest aggregations of students in one class that ever entered that worthy 
institution. During the first semester we were all more or less at sea, wondering 
what it was all about, but when a group such as this gets together it does not take 
long to overcome that feeling of strangeness, and there sprung up a strong and 
binding spirit of good fellowship and loyalty which is impregnable. Many an evening 
we felt that we were passing through a phase of Dante's "Inferno," but this only 
increased our strength of purpose and it has bound us more closely together. 

As was to be expected, by the time we blossomed forth into Sophomores, we 
fully appreciated that we were a vital part of the University. Filled with a great 
wave of generosity, we felt that it was our duty to make ourselves known, and permit 
the other Departments of Loyola to bask in the radiance of our superiority. So we 
organized the class and held an election of officers. Those chosen to be our guides 
during the year 1924-1925, are: President, William Mulligan; Vice-President, John 
A. Maloney ; Secretary, Mary G. Kelly ; and Treasurer, Patrick Cahill. Under the 
able leadership we took an active part in all the affairs of the School, a review of 
which we leave to the Social Editor. Several of the boys accepted the invitation 
extended to them to become members of the Sigma Nu Phi, a legal fraternity, and 
the only girl the class is blessed with is now a member of the Kappa Beta Pi, a 
national legal sorority. 

We now pledge our support to Father Siedenburg and the Faculty in every 
movement they may foster for the benefit of the school. It is our desire also to 
express to them our appreciation for the great work they have done for us in the 
past two years, and in the years to come it will be our pleasure to co-operate with 
them to the utmost of our ability.

is "among the 
the Freshman 

When the Law School opened in September there were 
missing." However, about the middle of October we had i 
Evening Law Class some forty-five students, or thereabouts. 

The election of Class Officers for the year took place on the 19th of October. It was, 
indeed, a great event. There were few of us who knew anyone else, and when told to elect 
our officers it did seem almost impossible. Some of the members believed we did not know 
another sufficiently well to enable us to make a wise choice ,and said as much, but the 
climax was reached when Miss Stone was given the floor and announced: "I've been 
here for several weeks now and don't know any more of the members than when I started, 
and I don't expect to know any more six months from now ! So I move that the election 
be held tonight." That settled it. The election was held and we do not believe the class 
has suffered for choosing the officers it did. Mr. Donahue kindly consented to the adjourn- 
ment of the class, as the officers were overwhelmed with the honor so suddenly heaped 
upon them. Since that time until the present we have all become good friends, and the first 
part of Miss Stone's statement can hardly be said to have come true. 

As a class, we have tried to give our support to the various undertakings of the school. 
We were well represented at the Banquet of the Law Students in December. Those who 
were able to attend certainly enjoyed the evening and those who did not, heard so much about 
it that they will probably not miss the next one — if they can help it. 

We were sorry to lose several of our original members at the close of the first semester. 
We have several new members, however, among them another one of the fair sex, which 
brings the number of that particular part of the class up to four, the conclusion of which 
must certainly be, that the ladies have decided to "take up" as well as "lay down" the law. 

Quite a number of our class attended the concert of Claire Dux and the Paulist Choir 
(or at least were supposed to have attended it!). We were also represented at the banquet 
of the Illinois Women's Bar Association. 

While perhaps we have not yet been the largest, nor the most brilliant Freshman Class 
in Law, still, we have tried to keep up the standard of the school. 

When we gather together in the Fall no longer as "Freshies" — but as dignified (?) 
Sophomores, we shall at least start the year knowing some of our classmates, a few of the 
professors, and our way about the halls. We shall also have had a year's training in legal 
thinking — be it little or much, depending on the individual. As Sophomores, we promise to 
do our best to further the interests of the University, uphold her standards, and give her 
our wholehearted support. 

As the retiring Freshman Class, we wish to extend to the Seniors the wish that each 
and every one of them may be a success in the profession ; to the upper classmen we are 
indebted for their kindness and friendship; and to the professors we express our gratitude 
for their patience in helping us get through this, our first year, in the study of Law.

What are we doing at the College? What is the meaning of the rather com- 
plicated machinery that we have built up and are maintaining — registration pro- 
cedure, lectures, and text-books, schedules and reports, quizzes and examina- 
tions, assignments and recitations, credit hours and credit points, classrooms 
and laboratories, departments and courses? 

We are trying to impart a certain amount of information to our students. 
But that is really secondary. It could be done with less elaborate machinery 
than that which has been devised. 

The more important object that we have in mind is to develop in our stu- 
dents proper standards of evaluation of and, as a consequence, proper attitudes 
toward what is true and beautiful, noble and important in God's creation and 
in man's handiwork, in personal and social relations. 

We are trying to develop habits in the student — the habits of the natural and 
supernatural virtues, the habit of doing his best, the habit of being prompt, 
regular and accurate. 

We are trying to develop in the student skill and facility in the use of his 
God-given faculties of body and soul, of mind and heart. 

We are trying to help the student to live, to "have life and to have it 
more abundantly."

The Student Council 

The Student Council consists of three officers, a President, a Vice-President, and a 
Secretary. These officers are elected at the beginning of the school year in September, and 
they hold office until the close of the school year in June. The other four representatives in 
the Council are the Presidents from each class. The presiding officers, at present, and the 
class representatives are, namely: Vincent O'Connor, President; Ed Walsh, Vice-President; 
Leonard McGraw, Secretary; George Lane, Senior President; Thomas Stamm. Junior 
President ; Ed Wiatrak, Sophomore President, and Joseph Mahoney, Freshman President. 

The purpose of the Student Council is to represent the students in all their activities and 
undertakings. During the school year there are many events that arise in all branches of 
activities and in order to make every undertaking successful there are always a number of 
obstacles to be overcome. Sometimes the students are better able to take care of those 
obstacles themselves ; other times it is impossible to do so, and it is for this purpose that the 
Council was organized. The Council, since it started between the faculty and the student 
body, is more able to see the views of each side, and as a result can handle the affairs of the 
students in a better way than the students themselves could handle them. 

It is the duty of the Council, also, to give new ideas to the students and to the faculty 
when such ideas are helpful to the progress and success of the University ; and to aid, 
as much as they can, in assisting all activities and undertakings of both the students and 
the faculty. In order to be a success the Council must have the co-operation of the student 
body and its confidence. Both these things are very necessary, because if the students will 
not confide in their representatives and give it their full support, they cannot expect the 
proper results.

The Class of 1925 

As a group of aspiring young philosophers, the class of '25 had its beginning 
in the month of September, 1921. Ambitious students came from all parts of the 
city and from parts of other cities as well to make up that one grand unit that this 
class has proved to be. We were the cause, both efficient and exemplary, of many 
notable activities in the history of Loyola University. We began thing's" in September, 
1921, with a bang. Sodality Hall, at May and Twelfth Streets, was the scene of 
our initial activities. We banged our way through Sodality Hall and so wrecked the 
place that plans for a greater Loyola were immediately developed. In this huge 
undertaking, which is still being carried on, the class of '25 has been conspicuously 
active. In vain did Father Shanle}' seek to moderate our wild activity. At the end 
of the year he had a broken arm. And no one will forget that memorable picnic 
at Batavia, Illinois. It was a celebration of our first year's achievements. June 
found us ready and willing to move to the great North Side. 

As Sophomores we became a still more active unit in the life of the University. 
A few of us joined the "L" service in order to insure efficient service for the new 
school. We became the leaders in every movement. The new gym that was then 
under construction rapidly progressed with the help of free advice from the Sophomores. 
In the field of scholastic endeavor we became an acknowledged success. We won all 
the prizes before the contests began. And then there was that never-to-be-forgotten 
banquet at the Brevoort Hotel, easily the outstanding event of the school year. 

What we did as Juniors it is not for us to say. Rather let our work give testimony 
of us. The Pageant of Youth owed not a little of its success to the active support 
of our class. We were the same, hard-working group as ever. At the opening of 
the football season, the grandstands needed adjustment. It was the hardy Juniors 
that dragged them across the campus and put them back in place. In this great 
undertaking we were aided by the campus runabout owned by Ed. Kowalewski. Our 
efforts were rewarded by the faculty themselves, who gave each and every Junior 
a free pass to all home games. It was only through the coaxing of the Juniors that 
the faculty awarded like privileges to all the rest of the school. This characteristic 
activity helped us again to put over the outstanding social event of the year. The 
Junior Prom, February 22, 1924, was held at the Chez Pierre and thereabouts. We 
say thereabouts, for we crowded them in till there were heads protruding from every' 

The class of '25 entered the home-stretch with twenty-one members. We were 
practically the same class who started out on the road. We started our Senior year 
by staging another pageant, the Pageant of Peace. We were most active in getting 
the rest of the school to support our football and basketball teams. George Lane, 
as manager of Athletics, ably expressed our characteristic interest in athletics. No 
little credit is due also to the class for its active support of the second Loyola Inter- 
Scholastic Basketball Tournament. Then there was that remarkable concert given 
for the benefit of the Delia Strada Chapel at Orchestra Hall. These and other 
achievements constitute our enviable record. It is easy to foresee continued success 
for the class of 1925.

The Class of 1926 

Having the reputation of being the liveliest, up and doing class in the school, 
the class of '26 more than lived up to that reputation during the past year. Members 
from our class were prominent in all school activities and affairs sponsored by the 
class turned out to be huge successes. 

At the beginning of the school year a class meeting was called and class officers 
were elected. Tom Stamm was elected to lead and control the class destinies during 
the coming year. John Connelly was made Vice-President and Jim Barrett was 
appointed both Secretary and Treasurer. This election brought the German and 
Irish factions to a heated dispute. The names of the officers show who won. As 
the old saying goes, "It takes the Irish to beat the Dutch." 

Because of the high literary standard of our class two of its members were 
chosen to pilot the "Loyola Quarterly" upon its 1924-25 course. 

Several of our classmates had much to do with the success of the football and 
basketball teams. Devlin, Berwick, Schlacks, McGraw, Dooley and Connelly were 
among the stars of the school while John Schell proved his worth as manager. 

The Juniors had the honor of conducting what proved to be the most successful 
and elaborate social event of the school year in the Junior Prom. All of the social 
lions were there in the soup and fish outfits, rented and otherwise. 

Besides being renowned for our athletic and literary ability we have one among 
us who has acquired world wide fame for the beauty of his pedal extremities. 

As the standard of class pep rises and competition for the honor of being the 
premier class of the school becomes keener, so the standard of our class has gone 
in the ascendancy and old '26 promises to retain the crown for another year. 

If the class continues to function as it has so far, next year should produce the 
banner graduation class of the University.

The Maria Delia Strada 


James J. Mertz, S.J. 
tor of the Maria Delia Strada 

The college chapel is the center of the stu- 
dent's life. It is the source of his lofty aspira- 
tions and noble purposes and the fount of his 
strength and his courage. For it is in the chapel 
that the student, forsaking all other thoughts, 
communes with his God in undisturbed tranquil- 
ity. It is here that he seeks, amidst the cares 
and uncertainties of the world, solace and con- 
solation, and peace. It is here that he prays for 
guidance along the course of life and for instruc- 
tion in the employment of the powers of his body 
and the faculties of his soul. It is in this sanc- 
tuary — this peaceful haven — where harmony ever dwells, and where repose 
and quiet rule supreme, that his soul, distraught by storm and turmoil, finds a 
redeeming harbor, on which there is nothing but a secure calm, a blissful serenity. 
Here, at the feet of the Almighty, his soul gains composure and stability : here 
it is healed and soothed ; here it is invigorated and strengthened against difficulty 
and struggle. 

Recognizing the potent influence that the chapel exercises over the soul of 
the student, Loyola University has long been looking forward to the time when 
her campus, too, shall be graced with a temple consecrated to God. And it is 
in pursuance of her desire and toward a realization of her vision that Loyola 
has determined to erect a chapel in the near future — to be called the Maria Delia 
Strada, or Our Lady of the Wayside. 

Plans have already been drawn and the details elaborated. In conformance 
with the other buildings on the campus, the chapel is to be executed in the Span- 
ish Mission style. Principal among its many beautiful features will be a paint- 
ing of the Maria Delia Strada to be the altar piece in the chapel upon its com- 
pletion. It is a reproduction of the one before which St. Ignatius Loyola often 
prayed and by which he was inspired to carry on his great work. 

Only the necessary funds are lacking and the removal of this barrier to the 
immediate erection of the chapel has been assured by placing the collection of 
these funds under the energetic direction of the Reverend James J. Mertz, S.J., 
who has already made many steps toward the attainment of his goal. The Maria 
Delia Strada Auxiliary has been organized and membership therein has been 
solicited among Loyola's numerous friends and patrons with considerable suc- 
cess. An appeal has been made to the students, not only to contribute their little 
offering to the Chapel fund, but to promote the cause among their own relatives 
and acquaintances, whom it might be otherwise impossible to reach ( to swell 
the fund by contributions in proportion to their means.) The outstanding effort,

however, and, likewise, the outstanding success has been the concert, arranged 
for the benefit of the Chapel on April 3, V>25, at Orchestra flail. The program, 
consisting of sacred music, was rendered with a true interpretation of the majesty 
and solemnity of its contents by lime. Claire Dux and the Paulist Choir, accom- 
panied by the Chicago Symphony Players. A success from every aspect, the 
concert has served as an incentive to Father Mertz to continue unhesitatingly 
in his undertaking. 

Thus, only a short extent of time separates Loyola from the moment when 
she shall behold, erected and completed, ready to carry out the mission which 
has been entrusted to it, her Chapel of Our Lady of the Wayside. (July a brief 
span of time lies between her and that occasion when she shall, for the first time, 
watch with a joyous satisfaction, her students gathering before the image of the 
Maria Delia Strada, as St. Ignatius had oftentimes done, there to entreat her 
help and protection, to seek comfort and relief, to be strengthened and inspired.

The Loyola University Library 

During the past year the Library has continued to increase its facilities and 
enlarge its service so that it is rapidly taking its place as a fully-equipped uni-

to make itself felt in the manner in which both faculty and students have been 
obliged in the use of the books and in the general improvement of the department 
and its equipment. Miss Ryan has this year been ably assisted by Miss Mary

enlarged and enriched during the past year, a picture of its new quarters appear-

The Home Study Department 

The correspondence department of the University, having- already passed the 
perilous "second summer" of its childhood, is, in the language of Coue, '"every 
day getting bigger and better." 

A survey made of this department last July for the Educational Bureau at 
Washington showed a membership of 310; 292 women and 18 men. Of the 
292 women, 261 were members of religious sisterhoods and represented 33 dis- 
tinct congregations. The oldest student in the department at that time was 65 
years of age ; the youngest 17. The attendance figures have more than doubled 
themselves since this survey was made. 

The department now offers at least a few courses in all subjects usually con- 
sidered of junior college grade by the best colleges. Since the majority of its 
pupils are sisters — residing far from the university, but living in splendidly 
equipped convents and academies, even laboratory courses have been given advan- 
tageously through this method. Courses in journalism and commerce are now 
being planned and will be offered in the very near future. 

Our correspondence work seems to appeal mostly to college students who are 
unable to pursue continuous residence study and to grade and high school teach- 
ers who desire assistance in some particular subject. A few professional and 
business people have also sought its work to supplement their training. Thus 
far the courses in English and Latin have been the most popular with mathematics 
not far in the background.

The School of Commerce 

Thomas J. Reedy, LL.B.. C.P.A., Dean 


The School of Commerce has no tradition, no clubs, no societies. It com- 
menced last September with a satisfactory enrollment and the year has been one 
of very hard work. The results from a scholastic standpoint have been very 
gratifying and I desire to take advantage of this opportunity to thank those who 
have contributed to this success, the active members of the faculty for their 
whole-hearted co-operation, the students for their faith in the new department, 
and Father Siedenburg, of the Sociology School, for his constructive counsel. 

The future is auspicious ; we believe we are rendering a real service to the 
students and to the community.

Loyola University School of Commerce commenced last September, holding 
classes in the Ashland Block on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings 
The original enrollment numbered 85. of whom 55 were commerce, 20 pre- 
legal and ten special students. 

The school is co-educatioal and fifteen of those originally enrolled are young 
ladies. The student body contains graduates from De La Salle Institute, St. 
Mel's, St. Patrick's, St. Rita's, St. Philip's, and other Catholic high schools and 
also a number from the public and out-of-town schools. 

Commerce classes offered in September were as follows : Accounting, Busi- 
ness Law, Economics and English. Pre-legal students studied these subjects 
except business law, and also attended classes in American History and Political 
Science. In February, twenty new students were enrolled and additioal classes 
were offered in Accounting, Economic History and European History. During 
the months of June and July classes will be held in Business Administration, 
European History and English. 

Next September classes will be formed in Advanced Accounting, Cost 
Accounting, Advanced Economics, Advertising and Credits. Each year addi- 
tional classes will be offered until the end of the fourth year, when complete 
courses in Commerce and Business Administration will have been covered. 

The administration of the School has been handled by Thomas J. Reedy, 
A.M., LL.B.. C.P.A. , Dean, and Francis J. Rooney, A.M., LL.B., Registrar. The 
following are the active facultv : 




The Commerce School 

Impressions of a Student 

Everything has a beginning. Likewise, everything that has a beginning grows and con- 
tinues to grow. Loyola University began and is gradually expanding. And with her expan- 
sion the desire for more departments became a necessity, and that necessity became a demand. 
The result was the forming of a Commerce Evening School. 

How essential and beneficial a project the Commerce Evening Department is today at 
Loyola may be evidenced in the earnest and sincere efforts of its students to follow in the 
footsteps of those loyal men who have made our Alma Mater what she is today. 

With the second semester drawing to a close, some eighty ambitious students in this 
Commerce Department, twenty of whom are preparing themselves for law, have worthily 
written into the annals of Loyola the history and memory of a successful first year for this 
new branch of the University. 

To Mr. Reedy, Dean of the Commerce Evening School and professor of accounting, 
belongs the credit for the capable and excellent management of which the students are so 

LOYOLAN-1925 >S©£&S©E2^ 

vociferous in their praise and sincere in their gratitude and appreciation. He has made him- 
self pleasingly popular, both in and out of the classroom, by his frankness and amiability. 

Here, then, we find a group of students attendng classes three evenings a week from six 
o'clock until ten. Young men and ladies from all parts of the city, who work during the 
day, who sacrifice their evenings for a better education, who find time, because they want to, 
to study outside of class hours, come here to prepare themselves for those careers to which 
their ideals and ambitions have urged them on. They are not only the future business men 
and women and lawyers of this country, but as well the future alumni and alumnae and 
builders of Loyola. 

They have found their studies most interesting. These studies consist of accounting. 
English, history, economics, business administration, political science, commercial law, and 

Although the Commerce Department is divided into the two groups of Commerce and 
Pre-Law, all the students are together in several of the classes. In this way they come in 
closer contact with each other, they are more interested in, their studies, they become better 
acquainted with each other, a better spirit prevails, and the entire school is more beneficially 

Due to the many circumstances, it has been next to impossible, at least during this first 
year, to organize any club or association among the Commerce students. Next year, however, 
it is hoped and firmly believed, that this may be accomplished. 

Anyone chancing to visit the sixth floor of the Ashland Block, on the northeast corner 
of Randolph and Clark Streets, some Monday evening, would immediately feel drawn to the 
classrooms of the University by the merry outbursts of laughter and the chatter of friendly 
voices that fill the surrounding precincts. This last, of course, before and between the hours 
of class. For on Monday nights both the Commerce and Pre-Law students meet in the same 
rooms for the purpose of becoming better versed in the elements of English and in the his- 
tory of our country. The professor who holds sway for the evening is Mr. Holton. Ability 
to manage a class with just enough leniency thrown in to warrant interest and closer atten- 
tion to the subjects for study has deservingly obtained for Mr. Holton a warm spot in the 
heart of every member of his classes. Veering from a discussion of the principles of gram- 
mar and rhetoric to one of magazine and newspaper articles and O. Henry stories has aided 
materially in making the class interesting. The same holds true of his treatise of United 
States history, in which he leaves the cold facts of text books for discussions of various 
phases of politics and government. 

Tuesday evening begins with a class in accounting. Xow. in the opinions of many 
people, accounting is a somewhat dry and uninteresting subject and one that requires a 
great deal of painstaking care and ability to conduct with any degree of success. Professor 
Reedy, however, has certainly accomplished the difficult. He has made the study interesting 
and enjoyable, and thereby has found satisfaction and appreciation in all of his students. 

Mr. Rooney is professor of political science. Here we have another man who, loath to 
remain to the dullness of study book type, brings up for discussion the many topics of vital 
issue which have been, and are being, passed upon by our state and national legislatures. 
Not only in the classroom is Mr. Rooney a favorite among the students, for anyone may step 
into his office and there will find him an attentive and enthusiastic conversationalist. 

In the economics class Professor Swanish has an unlimited supply of knowledge for 
which the students are in great demand. Thus we have supply and demand, the principal 
theory of this study, effected in the very conducting of the class. Mr. Swanish's popularity 
is characterized in his pleasing treatise of economics and in his ever-willingness to explain 
even the minutest details of that study both during and after the hours of class. 

The professors of commercial law. business administration, economic history, and medie- 
val history are all deserving of praise and gratitude for their tireless and enthusastic con- 
ducting of their respective classes. 

This, then, sums up in brief the story of those men who are helping to increase and 
spread the fame and renown of Loyola by their wholehearted interest in, and co-operation 
with, the yearlings of the University. 

It is clearly evident, therefore, that with such splendid organization and unison of 
ideals and ambitions the new Commerce Evening School is well and safely started on the 
road to its success and prosperity and that of Lovola University.

Department of Dentistry 

The Chicago College of Dental 
Surgery was founded forty-three years 
ago by Dr. Truman W. Brophy and a 
few associates. It was the pioneer in 
dental schools of the world. In 1893 it 
was moved from its location in the 
husiness section of Chicago to the 
West Side medical center, where it is 
now located. 

The five storv building now occupied 
was built for the school and every pro- 
vision was made to care for the advanc- 
ing requirements of dental education. 
The first and second floors are devoted 
to the dental clinic with its correlated 
departments and offices. There are four 
science and four technical laboratories 
with three amphitheatres, seating one 
hundred, two hundred and three hun- 
dred, respectively, located on the three 
upper floors. The library and executive offices are located on the fourth floor. 
The equipment is of the type most approved for its purpose and the methods 
of instruction are the result of the experience of some of the world's greatest 
dental educators through their long, active association with this college. 

The clinical material available in this location is remarkable for its extent 
and variety and our students are assured at all times of a surplus of this most 
necessary adjunct to proper dental education. 

The institution has been most fortunate in attracting a type of students 
whose subsequent careers have reacted to the greater renown of the school. Of 
over four thousand alumni, nine are or have been deans of dental colleges, and 
man)- are recognized as authorities in the fields of dental education and 

lite student body for this year is composed of men from thirty-five states, 
the Hawaiian Islands and from the following countries — Austria, British 
Guiana, Canada, Jerusalem, Lithuania, Mexico and Sweden. 

In 1926 the preliminary requirements for matriculation will be one year of 
specified pre-dental college study, but for the 1925-26 session students will be 
admitted who have graduated from the four-year, fifteen-unit course of a high 
school, or other secondary school accredited or recognized by its State University.

The Dental Department 
The Chicago College of Dental Surgery 

The basic idea in dental education should be the preparation of students in the most 
practical and comprehensive way for the greatest efficiency of service to the people. In any 
institution where this fundamental recjuisite is not constantly in the minds of the faculty 
the best results can never be achieved and it is to the credit of the Chicago College of 
Dental Surgery, which is now an integral department of Loyola, that during its entire 
history, extending now more than forty years, the character of its graduates is such that 
they have always been outstanding men in any community where they have elected to practice.

Dental Department, Loyola University 

The splendid results achieved by this institution would never have, been possible unless 
the motif behind all the activities of its founders and faculty had been of the highest order. 
From the very beginning the aim has been to develop the individual initiative of the student, 
to compel him to think in terms of service rather than in terms of servitude, and the result 
has been that the alumni of 4,500 constitute a body of men and women the equal of which 
it would be difficult to duplicate in any other institution of the kind in the world. The 
achievements of the past are therefore very gratifying, and the prospects for the immediate 
future are brighter than ever before. There is today a spirit of co-operation — a sentiment 
of harmony and helpfulness throughout the entire teaching and student body — which augurs 
most auspiciously for the future prosperity of the institution. With the fostering care of 
Loyola, coupled with the enthusiasm and loyal support of the department, the prospects for 
the most efficient service to the citizens of our country never seemed so bright as they do

A Pioneer and Peer in 


M.D.. D.D.S., LL.D. Sc.D., F. A. C.S., 

F. A. C. D., O. I. (France) 

Born April 12th. 1848, at Gooding's Grove, 
Will County, Illinois. Dr. Brophy was brought 
up on a farm, and attended "the old log school 
house." From there he went to the Elgin 
Academy, and in 1866 moved to Chicago. In 
1872 he was graduated from the Pennsylvania 
College of Dental Surgery. D.D.S., and in 1880 
from Rush Medical College, M.D. In 1881 he 
took the initiative in organizing the Chicago 
Dental Infirmary, which later became the 
Chicago College of Dental Surgery. He was 
the first Dean of this institution and held the 
position till 1920, an uninterrupted service of 
nearly forty years in this responsible capacity. 
In 1886 he made his first operation for immediate closure of congenital cleft palate in a 
young infant before his class, and from that day to this his name stands out as the premier 
operator in this department of surgery throughout the world. He has a record of more 
cleft palate operations than any man living or dead, and the beneficence of his work has 
gone to the uttermost parts of the earth where children are deformed and mothers' hearts 
are sad. 

To make a bare mention of the various offices Dr. Brophy has held would be quite 
beyond the bounds of our present space, and we must content ourselves with a few of the 
most outstanding. He has been President of the Chicago Dental Society, the Odontological 
Society of Chicago, the Illinois State Dental Society, the National Association of Dental 
Faculties, and President, for the United States, of the Fourteenth International Medical 
Congress at Madrid. In 1914 he was made President of the International Dental Federation 
— a world organization — which office he still holds.

School of 

Agnes Van Driel, A.M. 

The School of Sociology was established as the Down-Town School of the College 
of Arts and Science of Loyola University in October, 1914, although the previous 
year two courses in Social Problems and Social Technique had been given to test 
out the possibilities in the field of social service training. Since 1914 the School 
has gradually enlarged its scope and curriculum until today it offers in the Down- 
Town School and outlying centers no less than forty different courses. Besides 
the Jesuit teachers, the Faculty includes lay men and women who are specialists in 
their fields. 

The majority of the students are school teachers, lay and religious, although 
there is a fair sprinkling of lawyers, physicians and other professional people, and 
persons of leisure who are studing purely for cultural advantages. 

A limited number of students take the Social Service training course which 
covers a period of two years and includes ten hours of class work and fifteen hours 
of field work each week. The course is completed in two years and leads to a 
Certificate of Social Economy. Students who have two years of accredited college 
work can take the course and receive a Ph.B. degree in Social Economy. The training 
for social work given at the School is accredited by the Association of Training 
Schools for Professional Social Work. 

Most of the courses at the School are in Sociology, Philosophy, Education, 
Literature, History, Mathematics and the Languages. The sciences necessary for 
degrees are given on the campus on Saturday morning. 

The school has grown steadily and the 1924-1925 register of students counts 
nearly two thousand, of which number about eight hundred are members of religious 
teaching orders. Reverend Frederic Siedenburg, S.J., has been Dean of the school 
since its foundation. Miss Agnes Van Driel, A.M., is Secretary.

Pi Kappa Epsilon 

Loyola Chapter of Pi Kappa Epsilon was installed one year ago by the Rush Chapter. 
Its student membership is drawn from the Sophomore Class and the present personnel of 
the chapter is as follows : 

Dr. L. D. Moorhead Dr. T. E. Boyd Dr. I. F. Volini 

Dr. A. B. Dawson Dr. P. H. Kreuscher 


McEnery President Boland 

Drago Vice-President 

Pechous Robinson 


Erickson Secretary 

King Sloan Nelson 

Pi Kappa Epsilon is an honorary society but membership is not based solely on scholastic 
standing. To be initiated into Pi Kappa Epsilon a student must be suitably proficient in his 
studies, he must be interested in his class work and in his school, he must be active in the 
various student affairs, giving support to athletics and social functions as well as showing 
an interest in his fellow-workers. 

The fraternity is not limited to Medics but includes graduates and students of the Schools 
of Law and Dentistry, tending to bring together into a closer relationship members of these 
three professions formerly so distinctively separate and to bring to view to each of the 
groups the aims and aspirations of the other groups. 

The Loyola Chapter has extended invitations to membership to the following Sophomores : 

Ducey McKenna Powers Tallman 

McGowan McGuire Prendergast Westline

This organization, in the third year of its existence, has had particular success and 
bids fair to play a prominent part in the honorary organizations of the medical school. 

During the past year great effort has been made to establish the organization upon a 
firm basis, to increase its numbers, and to stimulate interest in diseases of the eye. 

Meetings are held monthly and a paper is read by a chosen member upon an assigned 
subject. After the reading of the paper, discussion is led by chosen members. Remarks 
upon the paper and the subject are then made by Drs. Tivnen and Ensminger. 

To Drs. Tivnen and Ensminger the society is indebted for their kind interest and

Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity (Legal) 

Stephen A. Douglas Chapter 

Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity (Legal) was founded at Georgetown University in 1903. 
It has the distinction of having its original charter granted, under an Act of Congress, 
establishing incorporation laws tor the District of Columbia. There are at present 
fifteen active Chapters and four alumnae Chapters connected with different Universities 
in as many different States. The executive house is located at 4809 Iowa Ave., N. W., 
Washington, D. C, at which place the Fraternity maintains the Sydney-Fuller-Smith 
Library and is the owner of many rare and ancient volumes.' 

Stephen A. Douglas Chapter was organized at Loyola University School of Law 
in 1924 and the fourteen charter members were initiated by Lord High Chancellor 
Edward A. Smith from Detroit, Mich., on Saturday, March IS, 1924, at the Brevoort 
Hotel, Chicago, 111. 

It being the aim of the Charter Members to form an organization which would 
be creditable to the University and to the members themselves, the Declaration of the 
Fraternity is followed closely as a guidance to all activities, namely: 

United by the strong tie of true brotherhood in the law. we mutually 
resolve to labor for the good of our order, our country and mankind. We will 
strive to promote the well being of students and practitioners of the law, and 
to cultivate the ethics of the profession. To secure harmony and maintain 
good-will, thereby perpetuating the Brotherhood. It shall be our earnest 
endeavor to suppress personal, sectional, religious and political prejudices, 
as well as unhealthy rivalry and selfish ambition. To the end, therefore, that we 
achieve fraternal guidance and assistance of the Ruler of the Universe. 

Before the end of the school year ten new members were initiated on May 3, 
1924, at the Brevoort Hotel, and upon the resumption of school last Fall plans were 
again laid for active participation in school affairs in which connection seven more 
new members were pledged and duly initiated Feb. 14. 1925, giving the Local Chapter 
a membership of thirty-one. 

The Fraternity also had the signal honor of installing Brother Sherman Steele, 
member of the Faculty of the Law School, as our first honorary member on February 14 
last, in a measure repaying Mr. Steele part of the debt we owe him for the co-operation 
extended to the Charter Members at the time the Local Chapter was being organized. 

Our Chapter was likewise signally honored last year by the appointment of Brother 
B. P. Killacky to a four year course of study in Rome for the Priesthood, by the 
Rt. Rev. James A. Griffin, D. D., of the Diocese of Springfield, 111. Brother Killacky 
has already entered upon his new duties with his usual conscientious fervor. On 
his way to Rome, Brother Killacky stopped at Washington, D. C, and was entertained 
by the National Council of the Fraternity. 

Regular meetings are held on an average of once a month throughout the entire 
year. Our social activities were many and varied, including several smokers and 
banquets which were attended either by Father Agnew or Father Siedenburg and 
various members of the Law School Faculty. At these gatherin'gs we were fortunate 
also in having some leading member of the Bench or Bar lecture on some legal 
topic. We also, through the co-operation of the University, were able to secure 
the Hon. Judge Gemmill, of the Superior Court of Cook County, who gave, as usual, 
an interesting lecture for the student body as a whole. For this lecture, which was 
given on Halloween Night, Judge Gemmill chose as his subject, "The Trial of the 
Witches at Salem," a trial of historical note. The big social event of the year was 
our dinner dance at the Parkway Hotel, .on Aug. 15, 1924. 

The members of the Local Chapter wish to take this opportunity to express their 
appreciation to Father Agnew, Father Siedenburg and the Faculty of the Law School, 
as well as the student bod}-, for the splendid co-operation and support accorded them, 
and we hope with their continued aid to make this Chapter a great and lasting success.

Italian Medical Society 

The Italian Medical Society of Loyola University was founded in the month of Octo- 
ber, 1923. It was organized by the Italian student members of the medical college with the 
determination to establish the following year a Chapter of Alpha Phi Delta. 

Our embryonic organization has thus far endeavored to better the interests of every 
member of the society, and with the co-operation of the faculty and the student body as a 
whole shall materially aid all progressive and constructive undertakings in the Medical 

We hope that the succeeding year will find us united with our national organization and 
hi pace with our collegiate competitors.

Kappa Beta Pi, the largest and oldest National Legal Sorority in existence, established 
Alpha Theta Chapter at Loyola School of Law last December. There are thirty-four 
chapters at present and within a short time we hope to have them at all the leading law 
schools in the country belonging to the American Association of Law Colleges. 

Though very young Alpha Theta Chapter has had many pleasant experiences and trust 
the coming year will bring us joys and benefits worthy of our founders' ideals.

The Thirteen Club 

During the past year the Thirteen Club of Loyola has confined its activities 
to the aims it has fostered since its formation in 1923, to wit: advancing legal education 
among its members and furnishing opportunity for a little recreation when the good 
fellowship spirit might manifest itself. 

The members of the Club have, of course, had but little time to devote to the 
social side of life for as they approach the goal toward which they all look so 
anxiously, namely, admittance to the Bar and attainment of their degrees, the road 
becomes more difficult to traverse, 

The Club, however, has not been dormant during the past two semesters. It 
furnished the majority of the talent at the Law School banquet. The vocal numbers 
rendered by Mr. James J. Kelly and Mr. Edward Hereley, were exceptionally well 
received and were the outstanding features of the contribution of the Thirteen Club 
to the entertainment of the banqueters. There was also a large representation at the 
Junior Prom. 

The regular get-together dinners at the Hamilton Club every month have been 
very successful in supplying means of strengthening the bonds of fraternal friend- 
ship. The attendance being almost one hundred per cent. The informal discussion 
of class work and exchange of opinions at these meetings have been of inestimable 
value to the members. 

The Club is to be complimented upon the fact that the Junior Class has seen 
fit to honor its members with three of the four offices at its command. Patrick J. 
Cronin was elected to the office of President, John Nash, wdio has since left the 
School to enter the profession of Certified Public Accountant, was elected Treasurer, 
William J. Campbell was elected Secretary. Mr. Campbell also holds the position of 
Editor of the "Nineteen-twenty-five" Loyolan. The Club is justly proud of the dis- 
tinguished honors conferred upon its members. 

This organization is unique in that it has no officers other than a chairman: 
the position is held by a different member each month, rotation being in alphabetical 
order. Since the last Loyolan was issued the Club has made no effort to increase 
its membership, but has plans now almost perfected which will prove of universal 
interest to present and future students of the College of Law. 

The present membership consists of the following: 

Herman Bittle Edward Hereley 

Douglas Brennan Edward F. Kane 

William J. Campbell James J. Kelly 

Raymond P. Cawley James B. Mariga 

William J. Connell • William J. Murphy 

Patrick J. Cronin James Penny 

William J. Dempsey Thomas Quinn 
Raymond J. Goss 

The Thirteen Club is the happy recipient of the good will and support of the 
Faculty and, appreciating this friendly co-operation, pledges the University and Faculty 
its utmost good-will and endeavor for continuation of this spirit of amity, and the 
maintenance of the proud position, which the University has attained.

The Fraternity of Alpha Delta Gamma was founded October 10, 1924. with a three-fold 
purpose: of affording the social advantages of a fraternity to students of high morals and 
high ideals, to promote and support all activities of Loyola University, and to effect a stronger 
bond between likeable students of Loyola University. 

Its members here wish to thank the Rev. Charles Meehan, SJ., for his encouragement 
and help in making the first year of the fraternity at Loyola the outstanding success that 
it was.

The Commerce Club 

The Commerce Club is an organization composed of members of the various commerce 
classes in the Arts and Science Department and is organized with the purpose of stimulating 
and encouraging interest along lines of commercial and economical activity and research. 
Under the direction of Prof. Peter Swanish, M.B.A.. this club has shown a special ability 
in combining the interests of an organization with the duties of class work, and the Com- 
merce Department has witnessed its steady growth during the past three years on the basis 
of such activity as the Commerce Club represents.

The Inigoes 

"The Inigoes," is the name given to the class that was graduated from St. Ignatius 
High School in 1923. Regular meetings have been held in the social rooms of Loyola 
University and were always attended by large numbers. Refreshments were served and 
entertainment, more enjoyable than might be anticipated, was furnished by some of the 
more talented members of the class. 

The purpose of these meetings is simply to have the fellows meet and greet one 
another and spend an hour or two in pleasant chat. The meetings also serve as a medium 
whereby the members are enabled to rind out what the other fellow is doing. 

Those attending the north side institution represent only a part of the organization. 
The others are either working or going to other colleges such as Notre Dame, George- 
town, and Illinois. 

No doubt many have been wondering why this class of '23 have clung together so 
as to make possible such gatherings. Needless to say, there must be some one in back 
of it all who has great influence among us and has kept us under his careful guidance. 
This person is Rev. Charles A. Meehan, S.J., whose altruistic occupation in our behalf 
is the chief source of our being unified. When school days are over and we have joined 
the class of daily toilers we shall always cherish the memory of this unbreakable union 
and we shall never forget the name "Inigoes," given us by Father Meehan, a remem- 
brance of whom shall always be an incentive to us in our aspiring for greater things.

The Debating Society 

The Debating Society is one of the oldest in the University and its active life throughout 
the course of the year is always one of the notable incidents in the school's activity. Under 
the able direction and moderation of the Rev. James J. Mertz, S.J.. to whom the members 
and officers feel a special debt of obligation, the past year has witnessed many significant 
efforts to raise to an even higher standard than formerly the debating activities in the college. 
Regular meetings are held and the personal efforts of the various members are always 
apparent in the lively and interesting discussions and debates which are conducted. 

The following officers were elected during the past year : 

President Cornelius Berens 

J 'ice-President Thomas Stamm 

Secretary Gordon Downey 

Treasurer Robert Hartnett 

Committee on Debates— 

Felix Zamaria, John Maselter, John Sweeney

The LOYOLAN-1925 

The Debating Society 


Loyola anticipated a formidable opponent in Marquette and was not disappointed. 
Both here and there they put up a real battle and that they were defeated here is no 
reflection on their debating powers as Messrs. Hartnett. O'Connor and Stamm were well 
nigh unbeatable that night. At home Marquette was more successful defeating Berens, 
Boyle and Downey before an enthusiastic home crowd. This marked a new epoch in 
debating for Loyola and the men certainly stepped off on the right foot. 

Loyola based its arguments on the inadvisability of a change in the powers of 
Congress maintaining that Congress should not be the judge of its own acts. 

Marquette maintained that there was sufficient grounds for a change because the 
Supreme Court had no legal right to the power which they now exercised and because 
the present system was not consistent with a system of checks and balances laid down 
by our forefathers. 

Mr. Hartnett for Loyola showed exceptional brilliance in his rebuttal. At Marquette 
the situation was reversed. Loyola defended the affirmative with arguments similar 
to those Marquette advanced here and after an interesting and hotly contested argument 
Marquette won the decision. 


Loyola entered into debating relations with Carroll College for the first time and 
extends its heartiest congratulations to Carroll upon their victory. This debate was one 
of the most interesting of the year and was attended by the student body without 
exception. So eloquent waxed the speakers of both teams and so bitterly was the 
question contested that the students were .eloquent in their praise of the affair and 
the speakers. 

Mr. Hartnett, Mr. Boyle and Mr. Berens represented Loyola in this debate and 
they put up a glorious battle. Carroll, however, were much like the rolling stone, very 
hard to stop. They were on a tour of the mid-western colleges and had gathered con- 
siderable momentum before attacking Loyola and as a consequence we have only the 
highest praise for our speakers who gave Carroll such a fight. 

The Loyola Debating Society feels proud of its debaters and looks forward impa- 
tiently to the time when they will resume their activities. 


Loloya met defeat at the hands of St. Louis in a home and home debate. We extend 
our sincere congratulations to the St. Louis men who invaded Loyola and protected their 
honor at home at the same time so successfully. This debate only served to heighten 
our respect for our own teams as they both put up splendid fights and only lost by 
2 to 1 decisions. 

At home Mr. Hartnett and Mr. Boyle gave splendid speeches, speeches which will 
linger long in the minds of their audience. They showed clearly and most effectively 
that Congress should not have power to overrule the decisions of the Supreme Court 
rendering acts of Congress null and void. 

At St. Louis Mr. Berens developed the legal side of the question with the skill of 
a constitutional lawyer and the superb oratory of Mr. Latz won for himself and for 
Loyola unstinted praise.

The Monogram Club 

This year saw the Monogram Cluh established as a permanent organization at 
Loyola. Under the skillful direction of Roger Kiley, the Monogram Club helped to 
conduct the National Basketball Tournament in a successful manner. This organiza- 
tion includes all athletes who have earned the much-coveted "L" in any sport. The 
purpose of the Club is to bring the athletes of the University together and attempt to 
create a filial friendship among them. We will not be able to announce the officers 
for the ensuing year since no election has taken place as yet. At present the Monogram 
Club is taking a deep interest in the Loyola Relays, and are co-operating heartily with 
Mr. Thorning to make it a successful event in the history of Loyola. 

The Monogram Club wishes to extend its sincere sympathy to Frank Gilmore 
at the loss of his mother, Lawrence Flynn at the loss of his mother, and Ed. Wiatrak 
at the loss of his sister.

The Sock and Buskin Club 

Due to the pressure of circumstances the Sock and Buskin Club was unable to 
follow closely the course that had been mapped out for the past year. The fact that 
the members were occupied with more urgent duties and that Father Meehan was 
laboring under severe personal handicaps prevented a complete fulfillment of the care- 
fully laid plans. 

As is evident from the title the purpose of the organization is to foster dramatic 
talent among the students of the University. Last year at the time of the successful 
revival of interest in dramatics among the students, the officers and directors of the 
Club drew up a program of activities for the year 1924-25. Briefly, it embraced the 
intensive study and presentation of one and two-act plays by the Club members, the 
review and discussion of current stage productions at regular club meetings, and finally 
the annual presentation of some play of distinction and merit to the general public — the 
same to represent the culmination of the year of work and study on the part of the 

But conditions at the beginning of the year were not what had been anticipated 
Frank Wilson, Douglas McCabe, Marshall Moran — all leaders in the society — felt the 
call to the sacred priesthood and early in the fall entered the Jesuit novitiate at 
Florissant, Mo., while several more of the most enthusiastic and talented members either 
transferred to other seats of learning or left school. Despite the crippling blow dealt 
by these losses, the society attempted to inaugurate its new program and was beginning 
to attain a small measure of success, when Father Meehan, who had up to this time 
been the sustaining force of the organization, was compelled, due to the pressure of 
duties, to give up his position as moderator of the Club. 

This blow proved sufficient to shatter the elaborate plans for the year. The officers 
decided to set aside these projects and not attempt anything independently, but rather 
to devote the energies of the society to the support of all dramatic activities connected 
in any way with the University during the year. In consequence of this resolution, the 
Sock and Buskin Club was represented almost to a man in the caste of the Pageant 
of Peace, and most of the members have appeared either in one of the different Knights 
of Columbus Council's plays or in local productions of their respective parishes.

The Glee Club 

As every house has its walls, as every wagon lias its wheels, as every wheel has 
its spokes, so must every University have its Glee Club. No, we won't say that this is 
the primary requisite of every University, but every Institution that has reached the level 
of perfection, in scholastic standing that Loyola has reached, should have a Glee Club; 
more especially should a College of Arts and Sciences have a Choral Club, because music 
is considered the finest of the fine arts. 

In the early part of the first semester, the first meeting of the organization of the 
musically inclined was held. Over half the members of the previous year returned. The 
new members were welcomed by Mr. M'Gurk, the Instructor of Music, and Mr. Devine, 
S.J., the Moderator. All the Novices were asked to sing the scale with Mr. M'Gurk 
so that he might determine the character of their voices. He was very pleased when 
he found several voices of extra fine quality, and others which he promised could be 
developed by persistent practice. 

At another meeting soon after the first, the annual elections wen- held. The 
usual procedure of elections was completed. Messrs. Thomas J. Stamm and John H. 
Lane were elected President and Librarian respectively. 

This year, the Loyola Glee Club did not compete in the contest held at the 
Auditorium, between the glee clubs of some of the foremost universities, but it is the 
plan of this body to develop in the next year so that when this contest is held again 
Loyola will be "among those present." We all believe that our University is just a 
little bit better than any other, so why can't we have a Glee Club just a little better 
than any of the others. All we need is the Will to do better — we have the Ability. 

- We have as our Director a man very experienced in the directing of glee clubs, 
Mr. M'Gurk. He has several clubs under his direction now and has become well known 
by the results of his work. With the instruction and training of Mr. M'Gurk a certain 
man who played with a well known Chicago orchestra, developed his voice so well that 
he is now singing on the stage. He has become a Chicago favorite. This is merely one 
instance of Mr. M'Gurk's ability in voice culture. 

The fact that the students are willing to make a success of the Glee Club is 
evidenced by their actions a short time ago, when, because they believed that the hour 
on Wednesday was too brief for the practice they desired, they voted to change the hour 
to four o'clock Monday afternoon. All the new members have been attending the meet- 
ings at the new hour regularly. 

Mr. M'Gurk has been trying to increase the number of members in the club because 
he is planning to make several trips next year with the Club, and he would like to 
have more than twenty-five voices make the trip. So if you can't be with us this year, 
don't fail to join us next year, for we have some good trips in view. 

The Loyola Glee Club will soon be heard over the radio. We have been asked 
by more than one person this year why we don't sing over the radio. The answer is 
that we haven't prepared enough songs. The director, Mr. M'Gurk, has engagements 
at various stations in line for us, which we will fill as soon as we have increased our

The Literary Academy 

Loyola had long felt the need of a society which would develop the literary inter- 
ests of its students and which would thus enable them to broaden and intensify their 
acquaintance with the literature of the world far beyond the extent possible under 
the necessarily limited courses offered in the school. 

To fill this need, the Literary Academy of Loyola University had been organized 
several months ago by the students of the College of Arts and Sciences upon the sug- 
gestion and under the direction of Mr. Divine, S.J. At the first meeting of the 
Academy, held Feb. 27, 1925, the purpose of the society was discussed and defined, 
its plans outlined, and the date of meeting and method of procedure established. It 
was determined that the Academy should aim to make more intimate the association 
of its members with the great works of literature — especially with those created by 
Catholic authors — and, not contenting itself merely with an objective study of these, 
to enquire into the philosophical truths underlying their nature and conditioning their 
character in order more fully to appreciate the inherent qualities of beauty as expressed 
in writing. To gain the first of these ends, it was decided that, on alternate Fridays, 
members of the Academy should read papers on some particular author, treating therein 
his characteristics and peculiarities, and that, upon the completion of these, free dis- 
cussion of their statements should follow; to secure the second, Mr. Divine, S.J.. agreed 
to lecture, on the intervening Fridays, upon the philosophy of the beautiful and the 
principles of criticism. Thus, both a thorough knowledge of literature and an under- 
standing of its basic laws would be assured. 

Judging from the enthusiasm evinced by the members in the activities of the 
Academy and their keen interest in its proceedings, one can safely predict that success 
cannot but come to the organization. It is only to be hoped that the student body as 
a whole will participate in greater numbers in the endeavors of the society, so that it 
will be able to assume its proper place among the organizations of the University. 

The following were elected officers of the Academy: 

President Thomas Byrne 

Vice-President Felix Zamiara 

Secretary John Lane

The Booster Club 

As the activities of the University increased in number and expanded in importance 
there was felt a need of an organization of those whose inclinations and abilities made 
them useful to the school. Such immense enterprises as the Interscholastic Tournament, 
the Relays, the Pageants, and the ambitious football schedule of 1925, to say nothing 
of the many essential college activities already conducted, the publications, clubs and 
societies, gave rise to an apparent need for a Boosters Club. 

These facts were presented to the student council after the examinations in January, 
and thej' took steps to immediately organize this all-important union, from which leaders 
would be found to man all the various enterprises now being undertaken and all to be 
inaugurated in the future, and from which support can be expected for any movement 
of real importance. 

Upon the advisement of the respective class presidents, a roster of members was 
drawn up by the president of the student council, Vincent O'Connor, and a notice of 
the initial meeting posted. The attendance at the first meeting certainly proved that the 
fellows were anxious to ally themselves with some booster association, and that the 
right fellows had been selected as members. 

The aims of the Booster Club may be summed up in a single word: "Boost!" It 
has assembled into a workable machine those students who have proven their school- 
spirit, and those who will be expected to make things hum next year. During its first 
three meetings it started an indoor league, pledged support to the chapel concert, bought 
everj' available student relay ticket within ten minutes of their presentation for sale, 
and provided ushers for the Carnival at Grant Park. But its real work is yet to be 
done. Next year — next fall especially — will tell whether it is equal to the task it had 

There are at present seventy-five members in the Booster Club, selected without 
reference to classes. Robert Hartnett was chosen Chairman of the Board of Control.

The Sodality 

The College Sodality of the Blessed Virgin Mary is one of the most active organiza- 
tions that function on the Xorth Side Campus. With an enrollment of about one hundred 
students, it forms a most distinctive and representative body of young men who feel 
that such a society should be sponsored, not only for the honor and devotion, due our 
Blessed Lady, but also to promote the religious tone of the institution. 

Soon after the opening of the fall term, Father James J. Mertz, S.J., the moderator, 
posted a notice for the first meeting and a large number of zealous students convened 
in the college chapel and outlined their plans for the coming year. New members were 
soon enrolled and within a short time the Tuesday meetings showed a roll call that was 
indeed pleasing. The average meeting is very brief and consists of the recitation of 
the office interspersed with short talks by Father Mertz, and though somewhat brief in 
delivery are lengthy in their impressions on the Sodalists. 

The primary purpose of the Sodality is, of course, honor and devotion to our Lady, 
but its activities are not confined to this motive alone. Father Mertz continually mani- 
fests his faith in the Sodalists by making them the prime movers in various works that 
may arise and need the help of the student body. 

Among the many activities that the Sodality has sponsored in the last year were, 
the self-denial collection for Foreign Missions, stereoptican lecture on Father Marquette, 
a testimonial given to the Right Reverend L. Van Hoeck, S.J., Bishop of Patna, India, 
and the Maria Delia Strata Chapel project. Every member has pledged his support to 
this excellent work, and to help toward making the project a realization.

If a symbol were chosen to represent the greatness of any school and the prestige which 
that school commands, that symbol could very appropriately be a triangle. The base of 
that triangle is the faculty which is the real foundation upon which the ideals of a school 
are built. We who have graduated from Loyola University can well feel proud for we 
know that in this respect our school is equal to any other. 

The other two factors which enter into a school's greatness are the student body and 
the alumni. These two are of about he same importance though their functions are some- 
what different. The alumni can look with confidence to the time when those who are now 
students enter into the ranks of the graduates. The achievements of the students of the past 
few 3'ears are worthy of note and are a strong indication that they will remain loyal followers 
of their Alma Mater in days to come. 

The work of the alumni is of another kind. Both the faculty and the student body 
look to them for co-operation in social and athletic activity and especially for financial 
support, and all will agree that this is fair and just. 

During the past year the alumni have been actively engaged though, perhaps, their work 
has not always been apparent. To Father Siedenburg, who is the faculty member of the 
Board of Governors, much credit is due for taking upon himself the raising of the money 
necessary to meet interest payments and partially retire the outstanding bonds on the Alumni 
Gymnasium. It is hoped that every student of the present as well as of the past will do 
his share in helping discharge the debt which the alumni has assumed in erecting the 

In October the Maroon and Gold Club, organized within the ranks of the alumni with 
the special purpose of supporting athletics at the University, held "The Roundup" in the gym- 
nasium, the proceeds of which went towards athletic activities. With the close of the football 
season the Club tendered a banquet to the squad at the Auditorium Hotel. They were also 
strong in their support of the Basketball Tournament and took an active part in promoting 
the First Loyola Relays held in April at Grant Park Stadium. 

At present there are men in the Alumni Association who are showing genuine loyalty to 
their Alma Mater and are giving much of their time towards perfecting the organization 
and carrying out plans for a "Greater Loyola." Their efforts are bound to be successful 
if those who have not yet done their bit will unite with them and march to the slogan,

Loyola University Alumnae 

Loyola University Alumnae is nine years young and not at all apologetic for its youth. 
The organization idea originated at an informal dinner, held at the Hotel LaSalle in 
June, 1915, and the following October a regular alumnae organization was perfected. While 
a purely social spirit prompted the first meeting, the members soon decided to undertake a 
serious work, namely, the establishment of a perpetual scholarship of fifteen hundred dollars. 
Four such scholarships, totaling an endowment of six thousand dollars, have been presented 
to the University, and so each year four worthy students receive the course in Social Service 
as the proteges of the Alumnae. One of these scholarships has been named the Elizabeth 
O'Dea Scholarship, in memory of one who in life worked unselfishly for her Alma Mater. 

The Alumnae has been doing its part in procuring funds for the gymnasium located on 
the northside Campus. To date, seven thousand dollars have been pledged and additional 
pledges are coming in. 

On the Alumnae calendar several events of interest appear. A lecture with a musicale 
is given each spring at some downtown theater. Among the distinguished lecturers 
presented by the Alumnae have been Mary Boyle O'Reilly, Thomas A. Daly, Hilaire Belloc. 
Frederick Paulding and Bishop Francis Kelley of Oklahoma. Several teas, outings and 
luncheons take place throughout the year to enable present and past students to become 
better acquainted. 

At present there are approximately five hundred members in the organization. There 
are two classes of membership, active and associate. Any student who has completed nine 
majors in residence may become an active member. A student who has completed one 
major may become an associate member. Only active members may hold office. The 
membership fee for both classes of membership is one dollar per year. Present and past 
students at the Schools of Sociology, Law and Commerce are cordially invited to join. 

At present the Alumnae are in the hands of the following officers : 

Moderator Reverend Frederic Siedenburg, S.J.

Loyola University has come, during the past two years, to realize the impor- 
tance of the institutional publication and the growth of The Loyola Quarterly 
and the establishment as a permanent feature of The Loyolan. the all-university 
annual, go to show how much work has been done along this line. Mr. Zabel, 
in his position as moderator and sponsor of these twin activities, has brought 
them to a place where they have become founded as the firm traditions which 
they deserve to be. The enlargement of the Quarterly and the entire organiza- 
tion of the Loyolan have resulted largely from his efforts aided by the co-oper- 
ation of the faculty and the interest and assistance of the student body. 

This year The Loyola News was founded by a group of energetic Freshmen 
and this weekly newspaper, under the direction of Mr. Thomas F. Devine, S.J., 
has won the praise and support of the whole university, in every department, 
and it promises to become a worthy addition to its older fellows in the publi- 
cation field. 

The University also has in Father Siedenburg the editor of the publications 
of the Illinois Catholic Historical Society, and in the Loyola LJniversity Press 
an excellent plant whose craftsmanship in the printing art has won it a large 
field of patrons and admirers.

The Loyola Quarterly 

The Loyola Quarterly, the literary organ of the University, is one of the principal 
student interests in the institution. It has a policy whereby every member in the University 
may contribute essays, poems, short stories, articles of current interest or comment, dramatic 
and lierary review and throughout the year these are published in the four annual numbers 
of the magazine. The past year has seen the Quarterly flourish and grow, both in quality 
and in size and it has gradually taken the place of the most vital force in bringing the literary 
interests of the school together. Its poetry is at all times equal to that of the best university 
publications, in articles and stories are always of genuine interest, and it prides itself 
particularly upon its department of dramatic and literary review, wherein fresh and original 
outlook is always encouraged and the genuine importance of the review honored. 

There has been, during the year just past, enough distinctive work in the Quartery 
to warrant a large number of special mentions, but it is probably necessary here to mention 
only the diligent work of the Editor-in-chief. Joseph Byrnes, in his efforts to build up a 
consistent and refreshing editorial standard, the labors of the Athletic staff in furnishing 
the students with a complete chronicle of the athletic year, and the constancy of those 
reporters and staff officials who have always been on hand to keep the machinery running. 
Some of the staff members have had only the decorative value of figureheads, but since they 
afforded that much service, one should not complain. Other friends have performed the 
unsolicited but always valued function of criticism, some of them in measures warranted 
to satisfy and even to sate, and of course these have been a true inspiration. But on the 
whole the Quarterly has won the usual amount of support and admiration due a literary 
publication, and for this it should, with humor helping out understanding, be more than 
satisfied. And there are certainly few who would deny the opinion of several eminent 
critics who hold that, among the collegiate journals in America, The Loyola Quarterly has 
come to hold a conspicuous place.

The 1925 Loyolan 

In its second volume The LOYOLAN, the year-book of the University, continues to 
show improvement and may really claim to have overcome the difficulties of its first year 
and to have reached the solid foundations of permanence which are so necessary to an 
undertaking of its kind. Even so, the 1925 staff found unnumbered difficulties to overcome 
and whatever failings still linger on in this volume must be attributed, in part at least, to 
them. The widespread nature of the campus, the intramural friction, the amount of traveling 
and messenger work which must be done, and the generally complicated aspect of annual 
work combined to make enough work for all concerned. Plans are already under way 
for a much larger and better book than this year's, but for the present it is necessary only 
to consider how much larger and better this ■volume is than the first one. The staff of 
The 1925 LOYOLAN is as follows :

The Loyola News 

Singular among the events of the College Year was the founding of the Loyola News. 
The publication was organized six months ago to fulfill the urgent necessity of a college 
newspaper. Its purpose at first was merely to give to the students of the entire University 
a chronicle of happenings and the activities of the various departments. However, this 
object soon was overshadowed by another and more important one, that of attempting to 
unite, as far as possible, segregated colleges of the University. That is succeeded wonderfully 
well in this self-imposed task may be evidenced by the success of the Junior Prom, and the 
results of the interdepartmental leagues, both basketball and baseball. The News is now a 
permanent institution in the student life of Loyola. 

At the time of the first publication, the staff consisted of but five men whose pictures 
appear above. It was due to their untiring efforts that the first mimeograph issues appeared. 
From then on, and until about the tenth publication, these men composed the sole editorial, 
business, and managing board of the paper. Finding, however, that the News was growing 
and that the staff was not large enough to handle the various departments, new men were 
taken on as reporters and representatives. The present staff is composed of the five original 
members, fourteen representatives and six reporters. The staff :

The History of the News 

The first issue of the Loyola News made its appearance on Monday, December IS. 1924. 
This publication was four sheets of mimeograph and was hard on readers and publishers 
alike. It was received well upon the campus and the other departments, not only because 
it was free but because it was a novelty ; there had never before been such a portrayal of 
student life and everyone saw in it a splendid future, but hardly expected the leaps and 
bounds of its progression. 

The next publication came out on the succeeding Friday, the last day before the 
Christmas holidays, and again was issued free, but with the announcement that the fol- 
lowing issue would have a charge of five cents. 

The third and last mimeograph edition of the News was printed on Monday, January 5, 
1925, and despite the charge of a niclcle, sold rather well in all departments. Following 
the first printed issue appeared and the date of publication was changed from Monday to 
Wednesday. Thus on Wednesday, the fourteenth, came the first real newspaper in the 
history of the University. From then on it grew in news items and circulation, and finally 
on Wednesday, April 15, less than four months after the first edition, the News accomplished 
another step in its advancement. The size of the paper was increased. Thus we have the 
LOYOLA NEWS of today, "a bigger and better newspaper, serving a thriving mid-western 
university of over 4,000 students."

2. To Lhiite All Departments.

The student body expresses its congratulations to the editors of the Loyola News, and 
waits for next year when the News will have a real chance to demonstrate the enormous 
good which a live newspaper can accomplish in a growing University.

The Pageant of Peace 

Many thousands of people "Followed the Star" to the Pageant of Peace, a Christmas 
Masque, produced by Loyola University students and the Catholics of Chicago in 
conjunction with sixteen high schools of the city. Close to one thousand actors were 
assembled and drilled for this vast spectacle, which was presented during the Thanks- 
giving holidays running from November 2i to December 3, and totaling eleven different 
performances. The theme of the story dealt with the birth of Christ, a subject of much 
broader appeal than that which served as the basis of its predecessors, the Pageant 
of Youth. The drama comprised seven distinct scenes, two of these consisting of a 
prologue and epilogue, the other five being occupied with the Pageant proper. The 
narration of Man's wandering through a period of 4,000 years seeking the coming of 
the Prince of Peace and the birth of the Messiah in Bethlehem formed the story of 
the wonderful presentation. 

The above theme was ingeniously worked up in a masterful manner and its real 
success is naturally due to its now famous author, Rev. Daniel Lord, S.J., of St. Louis L", 
this being the second of his proposed series of Catholic educational plays. The Rev. 
Louis B. Egan, S.J., of San Francisco, was again the scenic director and after months 
of labor in a specially fitted up studio completed the remarkable stage settings and 
lighting effects which so stupified the audiences with amazement. But the elaborate 
production was actually realized through the terrific efforts of its dramatic and general 
director. Rev. Claude J. Pernin, S.J., of our own University, who began his energetic 
work six months prior to the first performance and never eased up until the drop of 
the curtain at the last. However, he was ably assisted by Miss Beatrice Turner, who 
willingly relieved him of all costume arrangements and many other important details.

Halloween Dance 

On Halloween night, in keeping with the usual gay festivities of the date, the first 
social function of the new year was held in the form of a Halloween Dance, given in the 
Gymnasium. It was sponsored by the Student Council and was conducted in such an 
efficient and praiseworthy manner by the committee in charge that it proved to be a very 
auspicious beginning of the greatest social year Loyola has ever enjoyed. 

The Gymnasium was transformed into the wierd playroom of Mother Witch and her 
playmates, the Goblins, who were seen jumping up and down on the orange and black drapes 
that covered the walls. Lanterns and pumpkins, placed here and there amid the dim lights 
and cornstalks, gathered at great labor by the committee men, contributed to the true 
Halloween atmosphere that filled the room. 

The gay and light-hearted couples began to dribble in early in the evening, and soon 
the floor was filled with boys and girls, mothers and fathers, aunts and uncles, dancing to 
the unexcelled strains of one of the famous Benson orchestras. It was a regular Loyola 
party and the Loyola spirit of good fellowship exhibited itself throughout the room. The 
party was honored by the presence of the Rev. Father Agnew and Dean Reiner, who seemed 
to enjoy the affair as much as anyone present. The dance served the purpose of bringing 
all the new and old students together and thus acquainting them with each other. Long 
before the orchestra had packed away their instruments and departed for home, students 
who had been entire strangers at the beginning of the evening were calling each other by 
their nicknames. The only fault that was found with the dance was that it ended too soon, 
and this fault was not at all justifiable, as it was the wee hours of the morning before 
the happy, but tired couples unwillingly left the scene of their Halloween revel. However, 
the majority realized that all good things must come to an end and went away voicing 
their true appreciation of a perfect evening. 

This Halloween party proved to be the success it was, primarily, on account of the 
earnest efforts exerted by the committee in charge. The student body wishes to express 
its appreciation of their labor and also to thank the Student Council for sponsoring an 
affair that proved to be the criterion of their work throughout the school year. 

Pageant Dance 

The curtains had fallen for the last time on that superb performance of pageantry, 
"The Pageant of Peace," when the players, managers, stage hands, ushers and every sort 
of worker connected with the Pageant, began to look forward to some sort of reward 
which they thought was their due for their untiring efforts during ten consecutive nights 
in making this gigantic undertaking to the University a spectacle that will always be remem- 
bered by those who saw it. 

The University anticipated the just expectations of the workers and decided to hold an 
informal Pageant Dance. 

On Friday, December 12, the affair took place in the Gymnasium. The room, which 
a week before had been the scene of the earnest endeavors of the participants in the 
"Mighty Epic of the Crib," was now the scene of their well-earned merriment. The floor 
was no longer filled with unending rows of seats as it had been during the pageant. Instead, 
it was a huge space of polished dancing surface. 

Over five hundred couples attended the dance. Xo longer were they concerned with 
the trying duties of the pageant. They had enacted their various roles and duties flawlessly 


[Page 215] 

":"v" ~2 TheLOYOLAN-1925 " ; ' 

and now was the time to rejoice. Soon the vast floor was filled to capacity. The orchestra, 
although not connected in any way with the pageant, seemed to be as gay and demonstrative 
as the rest. The excellent music they furnished gave testimony of their sincere interest in 
the gaiety of the evening. 

Father Pernin, the director of the Pageant, and Father Agnew represented the Faculty 
and thus expressed their personal appreciation of the unselfish attitude exhibited by the 
workers during the long preparation and final enactment of the Pageant. The workers, one 
and all, were thanked for their hearty and gracious co-operation and departed from the scene 
of their merriment feeling that they had been truly rewarded for their efforts. 

Freshman Prom. 

The majestic Blackstone was the scene of one of the most talked of affairs of the 
entire school year. This affair was the annual Freshman Prom, given on the night of 
January sixteenth by the most energetic freshman class that ever matriculated at Loyola. 
The dance was a huge success from every standpoint and the committee in charge deserves 
great praise for furthering the cause of Loyola in a social way. 

On the evening of the dance it seemed that all roads led to the Blackstone. Freshmen, 
Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors, together with their many friends, made up the three 
hundred and fifty, or more, couples that attended this gala function of the Frosh. It was 
a spirited gathering of youth, free from worry and care, with only one purpose — to make 
the evening one of joy and pleasure. How well they succeeded in accomplishing their 
purpose could be readily verified by any one who attended the dance. 

The stately ballroom, done in gold and white and illuminated by crystal chandeliers, 
was wisely finished off with the Maroon and Gold of Loyola. It could not have had a more 
inviting atmosphere. It was like a magnet with its irresistable force of attraction as it drew 
the gay young couples onto the glittering dancing floor. They fox-trotted and tangoed 
and waltzed over the smooth surface, while some of their fellow students and friends, either 
not in the mood for dancing or preferring to watch, gazed down upon them from the 
overhanging balcony. 

The music was furnished 'by perhaps the best known collegiate orchestra in or around 
Chicago, and they lived up to their reputation by keeping the gorgeous ballroom continually 
filled with the most appropriate and most popular dance music of the day. 

The evening was filled with joy and gaiety of every sort. The laughter of the different 
little groups, as they rested between dances, truly reflected the light-heartedness of their 
inner being. Two well-known members of he Freshman Class, wishing to express their 
appreciation of the support tendered their class, rose in the midst of the gathering and began 
to "say it with songs." They had intended to sing one or two numbers at the most, but 
their vocal ability was of such a high character that their eager audience insisted that they 
exhaust the entire catalogue of best sellers before allowing them to retire. Such spirit 
and enthusiasm marked all the activities of the evening. 

The gay assemblage was honored with the presence of Father Meehan. the personal 
friend of practically every student on the Rogers Park Campus. He represented the Faculty 
and, although he could not remain for the entire evening, his brief appearance added dignity 
to the affairs of the evening. 

The happy crowd broke up reluctantly as the orchestra played the sweet strains of 
"Home Sweet Home." It was a brilliant social success for the Freshman Class, and if 
they exhibit the same spirit throughout their remaining college years as they displayed 
in their first social endeavor, they will rightfully deserve a high place among the path- 
breakers of the "Future Loyola." 

The Sophomore Supper-Dance 

The Junior Prom had come and gone, the Freshman Dance was also a thing of the 
past and as yet the Sophomores were unaccounted for. The Sophs realized the situation 
and decided that they would regain their apparently lost prestige. The class officers put 
their heads together, a committee was appointed, and the result was the announcement of an 
informal supper-dance to be held at the Allerton Club on April seventeenth. 

This idea of a supper-dance, with dancing first, a supper at midnight and then some more 
dancing, was a relief from the usual run of dances held at the University, and the dance- 
going student body made it a point not to miss the innovation. 

As a result, the lower floors of Chicago's own bachelor hotel were thronged on the 
night of the seventeenth with the gay merry-makers from Loyola. 

The main dining room of the hotel was reserved for the exclusive use of the Sophomore 
dance and a more appropriate place could not have been found within the entire boundaries 
of the city. A wide inclined corridor led down to the entrance of the room and as one

The LOYOLAN-192S - 

gazed in upon the scene of the activities, a gorgeous festive arrangement welcomed his eyes 
The dancing floor resting in the middle of the room was surrounded by countless tables 
of all sizes. Some were arranged as long banquet boards for the use of the different 
fraternities. Others were of smaller dimensions, as those were reserved for the football 
team, the different societies and the private parties. While the most modest of all was 
the table situated at one end of the dancing floor, from which the Sophomore Class officers 
looked on upon the proceedings. They were the men responsible for the successful character 
of the dance, yet they wished to be the least conspicuous in the eyes of their fellow students 
and friends. This unselfish characteristic was the keynote of all the activities engaged in 
by men of the Sophomore Class during the swiftly passing school year. Add to this scene 
the exquisite furnishings, fixtures and general tone of the room, illuminated by mellow 
overhanging lights and filled with the peppery dance outbursts of the orchestra, and you 
have a mental picture of the gala function. 

The supper itself could be favorably compared with that served by any one of our 
leading hostelries. From beginning to end it was a perfect menu 

The gay banquet scene lasted for a greater part of the mignight hour, after which there 
was more dancing until the orchestra exhausted their repertoire of song hits. This was 
a ripe hour in the early morn and the tired young couples, satisfied with their evening of 
pleasure, were content to depart from the scene of their gay revel. 

Pi Alpha Lambda Dance 

The "Spring Informal" was the very appropriate caption announcing this gala party of 
Pi Alpha Lambda Fraternity, the youngest, but most active fraternal society on the North 
Shore Campus. A distinctive place for the gay revel was sought by the Fraternity men — 
one in keeping wth the high social standards of their organization. As a result, after 
combing the entire city, the brotherhood engaged the unusual Keedy Studio for the night 
of April twenty-fourth. 

The evening of the dance was like a mid-summer's night, with its clearness and warmth, 
its starry heavens and its occasional refreshing breeze — a wonderful evening for what proved 
to be a wonderful dance. 

The usual quietude of Chicago's "Greenwich Village" was distributed by the many 
motors as they drew up to the iron gateway that led to the studio. The merry youths 
and their companions wound their way through the cool garden to the place of their 
evening's rejoicing. As they entered the inviting doorway, a scene of rich artistry greeted 
them. Deep luxurious lounges, scattered here and there, rested on the bright oriental rugs 
that surrounded the tile dancing floor. Chandeliers of candlelight, placed on the tables, on 
the cabinets and hanging from the beamed ceiling, produced a mellow glow that added color 
to the Bohemian paintings that decorated the walls. The whole arrangement truly suggested 
an artist's work shop. 

In the midst of such surroundings, the King of Dance held sway, ruling with a merry 
hand over his light-hearted followers as they glided over the dancing floor. The bright- 
colored suits and dresses, together with the beaming countenances of the young couples, 
gave outward expression of their inner feelings. As a dance would end ,they would gather 
in merry, laughing groups or stroll out among the still, reflecting pools and flower beds 
of the garden. The spring of the air and the lure of the outdoors made the garden the 
rendezvous of many 

About the middle of the evening, the happy crowd welcomed the appearance of Father 
Meehan and other members of the faculty. They enjoyed their brief visit as the crowd 
also enjoyed having them as guests. As they departed they expressed their hearty approval 
of the acaivities of the evening and their regrets for their hasty departure. 

As the orchestra played the last sweet strains of the waltz, the party ended. The 
studio once more became quiet as the distant chattering of the last few couples departed 
through the garden gate. The affair reflected the high ideals of the new Fraternity and 
established it among the social organizers of the "Greater Loyola."

The LOYOLAN-1925 

Miss Ruth Stamm, 
Prom Queen 

The Junior Prom. 

Representatives of the Junior Classes of all the departments of the University assem- 
bled in a meeting soon after the beginning of the new year to formulate plans for the 
annual Junior Promenade, the greatest social function of a student's four years of college. 
As a result, Loyola University announced that its Junior Prom would be held at the 
Furniture Club on Friday, February the twentieth. 

Harvard has its Junior Prom, Yale has its Junior Prom, Princeton has its Junior Prom, 
and these great traditional universities with their wealth of social experience, their massive 
student bodies and their unlimited resources endeavor each year to make this annual affair 
of theirs the most elaborate of all their social functions, but to compare the Junior Prom- 
enade of Loyola with those of the above universities, is merely putting the affair in its 
proper place. It possessed all the pomp and splendor of a court reception, while at the 
same time it was not lacking in the spirit and enthusiasm that is necessary for a truly 
pleasurable evening. As the leaders of Maroon and Gold social affairs, the Juniors were 
determined to produce an affair that would create a lasting impression. How well they 
succeeded in their efforts could be judged by the favorable comments that were heard 
about the campus for many months following the affair. 

The Furniture Mart, besides having the distinction of being the largest building in 
the world, also houses one of the most elaborately furnished clubs in the city. The entire 
club, consisting of many distinctive rooms, was at the disposal of the promenaders, and 
perhaps the most unique room of all — the Scotch Grill — was where the Prom itself 
held sway. 

This unusual ballroom, with its quaint Scottish atmosphere, was a scene of unlimited 
merriment as the trim young couples, attired in the impressive formal of the occasion, 
glided over the smooth dancing floor. There was joy and laughter everywhere. Everybody 
seemed to catch the spirit of the evening and, considering the fact that about three hundred 
couples were present, it was an extremely spirited assemblage. The fox-trotting continued 
to the accompaniment of an excellent brand of music until — at the conclusion of the 
dance — the lone rumble of the drummer's sticks could be heard, beating, leading up to a 
rapidly approaching climax — and then stopping. It was the signal for the Grand March. 

Our own Junior Class President and his partner, the King and Queen of the regal 
procession, took their places at the head of the column and the march was on. Stately,

majestically, the long line of promenaders, four abreast, followed their King and Queen 
as they slowly wound their way in a perfect figure eight amid the scintillating lights arid 
artistic decorations of the ballroom. It was a spectacle of grandeur and, contrasted with 
the gay proceedings before and after, it added that touch of dignity that is so necessary 
for the success of a Junior Prom. 

The march over, the crowd again relaxed, some exploring the many unnoticed 
recesses of the luxurious club, other retiring to the dining room for a refreshing drink, while 
still others remained to enjoy the best dance music of the year. 

Medical School 

The unfolding bloom of social activity throughout the University was nobly augmented 
by the brilliance and success of the numerous affairs staged during the year, by the Class 
and Fraternity organizations of the Medical Department. Fleeting moments of glee, 
tempered with a fitting touch of the sedate, gave birth to memories to be treasured and 
incidents to be rehearsed, which brought gladness to the more troubled moments of the 
school year. Good fellowship, without which man ceases to be the social being of the philoso- 
phers, pervaded every gathering and stayed to mark it with success. 

In December the Sophomore Class Dance, at the West Side Women's Club, foretold 
of the success with which the year was to be so signally marked. The splendor of the 
affair was enjoyed to the full by the entire department, and here the lowly Freshman 
looked forth upon scenes of the 'brighter side of the bewildering life into which he had 
been so ruthlessly plunged, not two short months before. 

The Freshman Dance transpired on January 30th. and a night of revelry was experi- 
enced, which served well to launch the initiates to department on the second long stretch 
of midnight oil and lunches. Keedy's Studio, tucked away in the snug recess of the 
"Garden." served to bring all closer together, students and faculty as well. The affair 
was marked by the presence of Dean Moorhead, Doctors Job, Dawson and Hill. Music 
in abundance and excellence was furnished by the Berengarian Orchestra, under the able 
direction of Mr. Oliverio, and clocks struck the minimum as the last fleet foot, "home- 
ward plodded its weary way." 

The Founder's Day Banquet, given by Phi Sigma Chapter of Phi Chi, at the Del 
Prado Hotel. January 26, gave the metabolism of Fraternity Brothers both initiate and 
sedate, a pleasant surprise. Prestige in abundance was added to the occasion by the 
presence of Doctors Black, Arnold, Boyd, and McGuire, while the entertainment spoke 
volumes for itself. 

Students and Faculty laughed and ate to their heart's content at the annual Student- 
Faculty Banquet, which took place at the Auditorium Hotel, on the eve of the 30th of 
April. The class "stunts" were bits of entertainment at which to marvel, for the art of 
"blackface" comedy and melodious harmony was presented with the utmost degree of 
finesse attainable. At no other function was the feeling of mutual aim and ideals so 
marked as here, where the honor lent to the occasion by the presence of the Faculty of 
esteemed Doctors, shed itself upon the assembled students and raised every one to the 
heights where mirth and enjoyment raced unconfined. 

Epsilon, the Loyola Chapter of Nu Sigma Phi Sorority, carried the prestige of 
Loyola to the Sisson Hotel for an eve of merriment on the occasion of the Tri-Chapter 
Sorority Dance, February 21. Beauty reigned supreme, enhancing as only it can, the 
elegance of an affair replete with enjoyable associations. 

The Southmoor Hotel, on January 31, was the scene of another social triumph for 
the fair ones of the Sorority. The Dinner Dance of this date was a fit forerunner for the 
affair recounted above. 

The Phi Lambda Kappa Fraternity, enjoyed the full measure of success at the dance 
sponsored by them at the Belmont Hotel on March 7. The brilliance of the affair marked 
that organization as a social entity of prominence in the University. The banquet tendered 
by the same Fraternity February 28. at the Auditorium Hotel, marked a gathering where 
good eating, quick wit, and "the cigar" serve to make the evening one of immediate enjoy- 
ment and future fond memories. 

In February the Italian Medical Club held a dance which was just one more of the 
year's bright spots. The Douglas Park Refectory served as the scene where the Italian 
Medicos tripped the light fantastic to the entrancing music, which would not countenance 
weariness and took no heed of time. 

To the Chez Pierre, the Fraternity Brothers of Phi Beta Pi wended their way on the 
eve of the 3rd of April, for their Formal Fraternity Dance, an event redundant with the 
marks of a distinct social achievement. The music was wonderful, the fair partners more 
so, and so even a blending of dignity and abandon is seldom achieved. 

Phi Sigma of Phi Chi Fraternity carried itself with ease and distinction at the Quadri 


[Page 221] 

Vfi&S 3S The LOYOLAN-1925 |o: V - ; :V ^ "?'?■' 

Chapter Dance of Phi Chi Fraternity at the Cooper-Carlton Hotel, April 4. The affair 
brought the Brothers of the four chapters of the city together, and the well merited success 
with which it was attended, served to give all an added confidence and pride in each other 
and the Fraternity. 

Junior Law Class (Day) 

There is little that can be told of the school life of a Junior Law student in the short 
space allotted us here. There are few outstanding incidents and even those few can be 
barely touched upon leaving to one's imagination the facts surrounding their occasion and 
their influence upon succeeding events. 

Our class was ushered into being in September, 1923 ; June '26 is the time of its Com- 
mencement. And in between the years there is little save study and a daily association with 
companions ever striving for the same goal, the same ambition dominating all, the same 
dream of its fruition filling their hearts. 

One of our number turned that ambition toward more spiritual pursuits — B. Killacky, 
who is now studying in Rome. The number of Juniors has not decreased, however, since 
three members of the night Law School are now flying our colors. 

That the quantity of our class may continue to improve until it rivals the quality, and 
that the patient, untiring efforts of our professors may be rewarded with as gratifying 
results from us as our predecessors have achieved, is the firm hope and desire of the 
Class of '26. 

The First Annual Law Banquet 

On a rainy night in early December, the Florentine Room of the Congress Hotel was 
made the setting of a brilliant gathering, namely the Faculty and Student body of the Law- 
School on the occasion of its First Annual Banquet. 

All traces of that solemnity which characterizes the followers of the legal profession 
had been laid aside for the event. From the Faculty were chosen the speakers of the 
evening, their usual words of wisdom being tempered with a dignified gaiety in keeping 
with the affair. The honors of toastmaster were performed by a member of our own 
alumni. Entertainment was provided by several of the classes, thereby discovering to an 
appreciative audience a variety of hitherto unknown talent. 

At the end of an enjoyable evening at which the Day and Night Law Classes had had 
their first "get-together," the homeward journey was started with every man conscious 
that this night a precedent had been established which for years to come will mean an 
event in the life of the student at Loyola University, College of Law.

The Coaches 






Coach Kiley 

Assistant Larson 

Loyola has been pioneering in Football now for but two years, but in that short span 
of years has made a name for itself and deserves to be placed in a far superior position 
than many schools that have had Football teams for many years. Perhaps the fundamental 
reason for this success, and phenomenal rise into the Athletic limelight can be found in 
the influence which Roger Kiley has exercised over his charges. 

Coach Kiley has won by his unselfish and untiring work in the interest of the boys 
their entire confidence and wholehearted co-operation. No coach could ever have more 
influence over his charges than has The Varsity Mentor. He has indeed a superabundance 
of that quality we term personality, which means so much in moulding green football 
material into a fighting band of Gridiron Warriors. He is a Chicago boy, the product of 
one of our own Parochial schools and St. Philips High School. His football knowledge 
was gleaned at Notre Dame University under the guidance of the Mighty Rockne. whose 
influence is noticeable in the style of play used by the Loyola Eleven. Not only was 
Kiley a gridiron luminary at South Bent but he was also a tutor of no mean ability, 
assisting the Mighty Knute in fashioning his 1922 and 1923 gridiron products. His foot- 
ball fame has included his choice for a position on all-western and all-American mythical 
elevens as end by some of the country's most renowned scribes and coaches. Kiley was 
one of the most famous three sport men ever graduated from N. D. He played not only 
football but was Captain of the basketball and baseball squads as well. 

Mr. Kiley's real claim to fame has been secured since he has left the Irish stronghold. 
He has raised Loyola from a practical nonentity in the Athletic realms to a position envied 
by many neighboring institutions. Loyola and its athletic prowess has become to be 
recognized by sporting editors throughout the Mid-West and the credit should go in a 
large share to the Mentor Roger Kiley.

Leonard Sachs, Physical Director 

Loyola University is most fortunate in having as Physical Director one of the most 
versatile and perhaps the best known athlete in the City of Chicago. Mr. Sachs has won 
an enviable reputation as a football, basketball and baseball player as well as fame as a 
successful coach. His ability is a recognized fact throughout the city and the boast of the 
Varsity students. The ability of Coach Sachs is reflected in his athletic charges, whose 
flashy work on the basketball courts has always been worthy of attention. 

Mr. Sachs divided his time between the Academy and the College Departments this 
year and the showing of his High School charges was remarkable and the College men 
wish to take this opportunity to congratulate Mr. Sachs on their splendid work. 

As basketball coach of the Varsity, Len Sachs worked very hard to make the season 
a success, and his work is appreciated by the College men. Perhaps we did not have a 
very long run of victories but the schedule tackled this year was far tougher than ever 
before arranged for the Varsity five. In all the games Mr. Sachs' charges fought hard and 
showed a fine brand of ball and sportsmanship, reflecting very creditably the work of 
their coach. 

We are proud to have Len Sachs as Physical Director and wish him all possible 
success in his work.

Frederick (O. Jay) Larson, Asst. Coach 
Perhaps one of the happiest moves of the 
Athletic Board of Control this year w-as the 
selection of O. Jay Larson, former all-western 
center from Notre Dame and team mate of 
Roger Kiley, for the position of line coach for 
the Varsity football squad. The big, unassuming 
center soon won his way into the hearts of the 
players, who had from the first great confidence 
in his ability as coach. The choice was correct, 
for a man like Larson was just what Coach 
Kiley needed to develop a first class football 
machine. Larson relieved Kiley of the worry 
of the line, so that he could direct all of his 
attention to the backfield and the ends. 

Larson's work as line coach fully justified 
the wisdom of the choice, for the line looked 
good throughout the season, and on many occa- 
sions saved the Varsity from possible defeat. 
(). Jay Larson was a popular coach and we 
sincerely hope that he will be with the Varsity 
again next Year.

Review of the Football Season 

The day after Labor Day this year saw the appearance on the Lakeside gridiron 
of fifty stalwarts, prospective candidates for the eleven positions of the Maroon and 
Gold team. Many were veterans. They included such names as Adams, Gorman. 
Stuckey, Cronon, Lundgoot, Murphy, Wiatrack, Bush, W. Flynn, L. Flynn, Scharenberg, 
Conway, Norton and Devlin; and fifteen other veterans of the previous season together 
with twenty-five new recruits. 

The prospects for the season were considerably brighter from the start than they 
were the year previous when Coach Roger Kiley was confronted with a large batch 
of entirely new and green material. The hopes of the Varsity eleven for a successful 
season were increased when one week after the season opened, O. J. Larson made his 
appearance on the North Side Gridiron. Larson was a former All Western center and 
teammate of Kiley while at Notre Dame. He was employed to assist the Mentor in 
moulding the line. The choice was a wise one as Larson soon developed one of the 
most formidable lines in the Middle West. 

The first two weeks were spent in developing the fundamentals of the game and 
in limbering up exercises aimed to put the boys in condition for a strenuous season. 
Then work began in earnest in preparation for the game with Great Lakes Naval 
Training Station at Lake Bluff. Morning and afternoon practice periods prevailed 
daily, together with a regular chalk talk every noon. The weak points were discovered 
and strengthened and the strong points noticed and encouraged until the scrimmage 
began to be looked upon by large and admiring crowds of the students, who particularly 
enjoyed watching the highly polished aerial attack of Kiley's charges. 

A week before the Great Lakes game slated for the 28th of September, the Varsity 
squad was running along in midseason form and executing with unusual precision the 
intricate shifts which characterized their style of play. Several new faces were seen 
in the lineups during the practice periods, including Boex, Greenwald, Lamont, Berwick, 
Merriman and Green. All these new men were fighting hard for regular berths on 
the squad and Green and Berwick especially showed promise of supplanting last year's 

The schedule cooked up for the Varsity by Managers Lane and Schell was perhaps 
the toughest that outfit had ever tackled and included games with Millikin, St. Louis. 
Dayton, Missouri Mines, St. Viators, St. Ambrose, Central College and Great Lakes, 
and Carrol College of Waukesha, Wis. The result of the season showed five wins, 
two ties, and two loses by close margins. This can lie considered as a remarkable 
showing in view of the stiff schedule and should reflect very creditably upon the work 
of Coaches Kiley and Larson and the co-operation of Capt. Adams and his men.

ADAMS, (Capt.) MARVIN. A shitty little halfback and a born leader, captained 
his men throughout a very successful season. Marvin made an ideal captain, possessing 
all the qualities which make a real leader, was popular with the student body and 
instilled in the hearts of his teammates a spirit of true sporrsmanship. Marvin did some 
remarkable work on the gridiron this year, being a consistent ground gainer and an 
excellent forward passer. 

BUD GORMAN, captain elect 1925. Bud is just a great big splendid fullback, 
who played sensational ball all year for the gold clad outfit from the North Shore. 
He was a consistent ground gainer, and in the St. Louis game especially, did he shine. 
It was in this contest Bud injured his leg which slowed him up for the rest of the 
season, but could not stop him permanently. Bud's nerve in staying in the game, 
despite this injury, was an important factor in choosing him as captain at the banquet 
tendered to the squad by the Maroon and Gold Club. 

ED. NORTON, fullback. Ed. is one of the three sensational fullbacks Loyola was 
blest with last fall. He is a hard plunging, hard working and likeable fellow. He was 
perhaps the best man at giving interference on the squad, few ends being able to resist 
his headlong drive. He is always working and always striving to further the name 
of Loyola. Norton is a Dental student and we certainly wish the rest of our west 
side brethren would follow his example and boost Loyola and try out for the teams. 
Freshman. Davenport, Iowa. 

AL. CRONIN, fullback. "Whitey" made them sit up and take notice in Dayton, 
Ohio. 'Twas his big day; with Bud on the sidelines, with an injured leg, Al. stepped 
in and more than filled his shoes. They are still talking about his mighty, irresistible 
plunges down in Ohio. Cronin is a veteran and stept out and did some excellent work 
for the University. Next year when we meet the "big ones," Cronin should be one of the 
mainstays of the team. He is big and tough and fast and knows football. Freshman. 
Law. Chicago.

La monk 

DAN LAMONT, right end. Dan blew into Loyola from Notre Dame about a year 
ago with quite a reputation as a football player, good fellow and a student. All of 
these have been enhanced during his stay at Loyola. His work on the squad this year 
was of such a high caliber that he supplanted last year's regular end and scintillated 
throughout the season at the right wing. He certainly can catch passes. Dan is a 
Sophomore Law student. Chicago is his home. 

BILL STUCKEY, halfback. Bill is a veteran on the squad having been with 
us now for two years, and has always given his best. He is a little fellow and perhaps 
the most versatile man on the team, a triple threat man whose accurate passing was 
instrumental in putting over many a touchdown. He runs and kicks equally well. He 
played as halfback in every game and was a rare help to his teammates. Sophomore. 

BILL DEVLIN, left guard. Bill has been a regular on the squad now for two 
years and is a very valuable asset to the team. He combines the qualities of a brainy 
lineman with those of an excellent kicker. Diz is big and hefty and has an ideal physique 
for a lineman and should be a great help to the team next year when it tackles the 
hardest schedule in the history of the school. It might be said that Bill, now a Junior, 
has led his class for three successive years. He is a Chicago boy. 

JOE BUSH, left end. "Davenport" Joe Bush is a dependable end, and a veteran 
of two years' service. Not flashy but always on the job ready to stop anything coming 
around his end and to take the tackles out or in with equal dexterity as the case may 
be. He knows how to snag in the forward passes Kiley-like and was instrumental 
in scoring many a Loyola touchdown in the past season. Joe is a Freshman Law 
student and hails from Davenport, Iowa. 


[Page 232] 


ED. BERWICK, center. Ed. is a big boy, 185 lbs., but with an ideal build for 
a center. He did some wonderful work at that position all year and went so far as 
to star in the St. Viator game, an unheard of thing for a center to do. Larson, line 
coach and one time All Western center, taught Ed. all his tricks and it was a real 
pleasure to watch him put them into effect. He played a roving center and had a 
remarkable ability for dividing the enemy's forward pass attack and intercepting their 
well meant tosses or at least breaking up this form of attack. Junior. Chicago. 

JOE WITRY, tackle. Joe is just a new man but is a hard worker. He won his 
monogram by persistent and constant effort and should be an example to all the new 
men of what work will do. Freshman. Chicago. 

HAMILTON GREEN, tackle. "Babe" Green drifted in from Davenport last fall 
where he had already done some good work on the gridiron, put on some togs and 
nonchalantly grabbed off a regular berth for himself on the Varsity line. Porky is a 
rather hefty individual and very effectually plugged up any gaps that might have occurred 
in the Loyola line. "Babe" is a hard worker and rapidly absorbing all that Kiley and 
Larson have to offer and next year should be a great help to the team. Green is a 
Freshman Law student. Davenport. 

ED. WIATRAK, tackle. Big Ed., commonly known as Whitey on the Campus, 
joined the squad after a half year's layoff caused by a broken ankle incurred in the 
Lewis Institute game the preceding year. His return was welcome as Ed. was a big 
help throughout the season. His boots averaging sixty yards put the squad in safe 
territory many a time and he was a veritable tower of strength on the line.

HERB SCHAREXBURG, the doughty end. who fitted in with Coach Kiley's passing 
game so well. Herb was usually on the receiving end of the heave. 

FRAXK GILMORE. center. Frank was one of the three good centers Loyola 
was fortunate enough to have this year. He worked steadily and persistently all year 
playing part time in all of the games and in the end was rewarded for his efforts by 
receiving a monogram. "Ham" is a big, powerful boy and if back next year should 
make a regular tackle, the position at which he finished last season. 

LARS LUXDGOOT, quarterback. Lars is an invaluable asset to the Varsity 
Squad. He knows football and plays it hard. A brainy field general and an ideal 
quarterback with a well educated toe sum up the merits of this little flash. He worked 
in every game for the last two years and his record for points after touchdowns is 
remarkable. His boot in the Dayton game was the deciding factor. We will welcome 
him back next season. Sophomore. Chicago. 

HAROLD LEDERER, guard. The little giant of the line is what many of the 
boys termed Harold Lederer. Small in stature he was a veritable giant in strength 
and in endurance. He stayed right in there and gave to and took punishment from 
the best and the biggest of them. He played in most of the games, and played well. 
Larson claimed he was one of the fastest and shiftiest guards in the game. Harold, 
we hope, will be with us again next year. Sophomore. Chicago. 

BILL FLYXX, right tackle. Bill is what they term in the papers "a giant tackle." 
He weighs over two hundred pounds and is well proportioned. Bill has been a veteran 
for two years and has done some good work for Loyola. He will be missing from 
the lineup next year and the loss will be keenly felt. Loyola students wish him all the 
luck in the world in his new enterprise. He's married now. Retired Soph from Ohio.

ART MURPHY, center. Art is rather small as centers go; but what he lacks in 
weight, he makes up for in brains and nerve. He has pep and fight in abundance and 
it is a real pleasure to watch him handle the big fellows that oppose him on the field. 
We've decided that the theory which necessitates a big center is all wrong and we 
advance Murphy as a proof. He plays roving center and plays it well. Sophomore. 

HALSEY MERRIMAN worked hard all season, appeared in all the games and 
deservedly wears the monogram of this institution. 

GRUENWALD, another worthy of the back field, only got into a few .games but 
showed much promise. 

"BOB" RIGNEY, halfback. Bob did some nifty work throughout the season in 
the back field and deserves special mention for his work. He played in all the games 
and won a letter. 

JIMMY TRAHAN. the little quarterback, who made up for his lack of size by his 
ability as a kicker and by his pepper. 

[Page 235] 


The Backfield: Gorman, Cronin, Norton 

LARRY FLYNN. Larry lias been a regular on the squad now for two years, 
playing a consistent game all the time. He is quite unassuming and dependable. Red 
is always on the job filling up very effectively that position at guard and stopping 
everything that comes his way, and fighting continually all the time. Larry is a real 
player and Loyola fans are proud of him, 

Linemen : Busch, Boex, Berwick, MacGregor

The Games 


Loyola University powerful machine made a successful start in the first game of 
the season when it defeated the Great Lakes team in a one sided contest 34 to 0. 

Loyola outclassed the Naval team from the start. Within four minutes after the 
first whistle Capt. Marvin Adams plunged off tackle for the first score of the game 
after Bud Gorman had fallen on a fumble. In the third quarter Loyola by a powerful 
over head attack put the ball within scoring distance and again Capt. Adams plunged 
over with Lundgoot drop kicking the goal. Loyola again scored two touchdowns 
in the last quarter due to the work of Stuckey, Gorman and Adams. 

Devlin and Gilmore were the luminaries in the front line. Riddles starred for 
Great Lakes. Two trainloads of students left the North side campus for the game 
and lustily cheered the team throughout the contest. 


On October 12th Loyola University gridiron warriors defeated Millikin University 
19 to 7 on Loyola Field. The game was well played but was marred by frequent 

Loyola threatened in the opening minutes when Lundgoot missed a fifty yard 
drop kick by a few feet. Then three passes, Lundgoot to Adams, put the ball over for 
the first score of the game. The second quarter opened with Milliken kicking off and 
Norton returning punt for forty yards; Stuckey plunged the remaining fifteen yards 
for a touchdown. The Millikin line was unable to stop Gorman's and Stuckey's 
plunges and they worked the ball close enough for Lundgoot to plunge over. He 
added the point by a drop kick. 

Milliken's score came after two successive passes with Kish on the throwing end 
and Firebaugh on the receiving end. Hasings added the point by a drop kick. 


On October 18th the Maroon and Gold contingent traveled to St. Louis to combat 
their fiercest rivals, the the St. Louis University Billikins. The game was the hottest 
type of conflict, with a wonderful display of football for the enthusiasts to witness. 
The game was a thriller up to the very last minute of play, when the Mound City 
outfit shoved over a very dubious count, winning the game 13 to 7. 

The Loyola boys were ahead throughout the entire contest after their famous 
aerial attack had accounted for a well earned score early in the second period, until 
the blocked drop kick incident led to the Billikin score. The other Blue and White 
score was the result of a Loyola fumble early in the first period and before the 
Loyola regulars had entered the fray. Stanton, the St. Louis end, picked up a Loyola 
fumble and dashed ten yards for the first score. 

Quoting the St. Louis Post Dispatch on the game. "In rushing the ball the 
Loyola men surpassed the Grand Ave. boys for the first three periods but tired in 
the last, when sheer desperation drove the Savagemen to determined advances. The 
Loyola defense proved to be the real obstacle. The linemen charged fiercely and 
broke through frequently. In passing, the Kiley men far outshone St. Louis." 
But as Kiley said, "We didn't get enough points." But next year we hope to get 
enough of those too.

Loyola (7) Dayton (6) 

In one of the feature games of the year at Dayton, Ohio, on October 25, Coach 
Kiley's men won by the skin of their teeth in a desperate set-to by a 7-6 score. 
The margin of victory indicates the toughness of the battle. 

McGarry, a quarterback on the Ohio team, scored all of the Dayton points in 
the first quarter by means of his educated toe. By using straight football Whitey 
Cronin and Eddie Norton took the ball down the field and Cronin plunged over 
for the six point marker. Lars dropped what proved to be the winning point over 
the goal after the touchdown. In the final quarter when Dayton was moving towards 
the Loyola goal, Big Ed. Wiatrak spiralled the ball down the field for the small 
yardage of half the field. Lamont and Lederer did some of the heaviest work in 
the line, but all the boys were feeling their oats that day and it would have taken 
"some team" to lick them. 

Loyola (6) Missouri Mines (0) 

In one of the toughest played games on the home field the Loyola gridders 
took the measure of the Rolla School of Mines, from Rolla, Missouri, on November 
2, 1924. 

The chief feature of the play was Loyola's holding of the heavy Miners on 
the five yard line in the second quarter after the Rolla team had plunged down the 
field. The longest run of the year was made by Whitey Cronin who ran forty-five 
yards for the winning touchdown after Berwick had partially blocked a punt and 
Lamont recovered. Stuckey got away some beautiful passes in this game and also 
broke up the Lemon and Lee combination of the Miners. 

Loyola (14) St. Ambrose (14) 

Loyola, after staging a wonderful rally in the third quarter and almost taking 
the game in the final minute of play, only broke even with the lowans at 14 all, 
on November IS, 1924. 

St. Ambrose made the first marker after Coughlin had carried the ball down the 
field. Bud Gorman then plunged through the Davenport squad for many large gains 
and eventually went over near the end of the second quarter. In the third quarter 
St. Ambrose again took the lead on a touchdown by Hippler. The Loyola squad could 
not make any substantial gains due to their sloppy handling of the ball. 

The real play of the game came in the fourth quarter. St. Ambrose had a lead 
of seven points at the beginning of the fourth period. Loyola seven points behind 
put their faith in Bud Gorman. Lars Lundgoot and Bill Stuckey, who alternated 
in making the first downs. After Lars had slipped around the end for fifteen yards 
Stuckey went over to tie the score. Loyola seemed to be hitting their stride when 
Merriman shot a forty yard pass to Gorman, but the ball was on the St. Ambrose 
one yard line when the whistle blew.

Loyola (7) Carroll (10) 

Coach Kiley's men journeyed to Waukesha to take on the tough Carroll outfit 
and lost a heart hreaking game by a 10-7 score. Loyola scored chiefly by means of 
the forward pass. Lundgoot passed to Norton and Cronin added fifteen yards through 
center. He plunged over for the only Loyola score of the game. The hig break 
came for Carroll when Loyola fumbled on the thirty yard line, and Carroll recovered. 
Regan dropped the ball over from the twenty-three yard line for the game. 


Loyola (46) Central College (0) 

The Maroon and Gold gridders played the role of the well known steam roller 
when they flattened Central College of Pella, Iowa, by a 46-0 count. From 
the beginning of the game the Iowans had no chance against the heavy fire of the 
back field artillery of Loyola. Their scoring power in that game was displayed when 
they scored fourteen points in the first five minutes of play. Halsey Merriman and 
Lars Lundgoot kicked in a few touchdowns apiece while Marv. Adams added two to 
the general total. 


Loyola and St. Viator College of Bourbonnais, 111., struggled to a 7 to 7 dead- 
lock in the Turkey Day game before 6,000 home-coming fans who shivered through 
the hard fought game on Loyola field. The home eleven took the lead by scoring 
in the first period, and the visitors knotted the count early in the third quarter. 

A blocked punt made it possible for the Viatorians to avert a beating. Coach 
Roger Kiley's boys had the advantage until the breaks went against them in the 
third session. An exchange of punts gave Loyola the ball on its ten yard line and 
when YViatrak attempted to punt the ball out of danger his line failed and his kick 
was blocked. Donelly fell on the ball behind the locals' goal line for the tying points. 

Getting the ball on its 25 yard line, Loyola marched down the field, passing and 
plunging, until Cronin put the ball over. During the remainder of the game Loyola 
menaced the St. Viator's goal line, while the visitors did not have a chance to score 
outside of the blocked punt.

Basketball Review 

In response to Coach Sach's first call for basketball men during the Christmas 
holidays, eighteen players showed up from the various departments of the University. 
Among the veterans returning were Captain "Bill" Devlin, "Howie" Schlacks, Emil 
Kamin, "Lefty" McGraw, "Russ" Dooley, Paul Hassett and James Trahan. Of the 
new men most promising seemed to be Ed. Hurtubise, Arthur McDonough, "Hick" 
Connelly, Ed. Wiatrak, Joe Daley Witry and "Bill" Snowhook. With but two weeks 
in which to drill these men for the opening game, Coach Sachs confronted his first 
difficulty. It was not this first game, however, that worried the Coach as much 
as the stiff schedule ahead of him. This schedule included more high class teams 
than the Loyola squad had ever met; among them were Notre Dame, Marquette, 
St. Louis, Lombard and Lawrence. Although most of the season's scores did not show 
Loyola on the winning end, the team showed a far superior brand of ball than their 
scores indicated. Alibis do not make amends for low scores, but even if they did, 
neither the boys nor the athletic authorities of Loyola would offer any. '1 he boys 
and the Coach gave all they had, at all times and under all circumstances, and nothing 
more can be asked of anybody. They were a credit to themselves and to their School 
and should be a model to the future teams of the University. 

The students and friends of Loyola who see the games can base their knowledge 
and appreciation only on what they see on the basketball floor and in the case of this 
team cannot do justice to the boys who fought so hard throughout the season. 
There are some facts which the public should know about them. At the start of the 
season Coach Sachs had only seven veterans from which to choose. In the first 
practice of the year, "Hick" Connelly, a new man in whom Sachs saw great prospects, 
strained a ligament in his ankle, which kept his out of the first game and slowed him 
up in the following games. "Hick" had a wonderful eye for the basket and could be 
depended upon, but he did not show his talent, for he had been warned by the 
doctor that another injury to his ankle would put him on crutches. He will be out 
for the team next year and barring other accidents is determined to show the boys 
what he has in the line of basketball skill. Another injury which occurred in the 
first practice befell "Russ" Dooley. He tore a ligament in his knee, which, while it 
did not stop "Russ" from playing the first game greatly hampered his game, and 
luckily for the squad, it was not until the final game of the season when he again 
hurt his knee, this time more seriously. While there were many promising players 
among the new men, they could be used in the first game, to show what they could 
do in the game and for what position they were best suited. Despite these handicaps 
the boys played their first game well, and though there was room for improvement 
they showed many instances of fine floor work and great shooting ability. This 
game also had a casualty in Emil Kamin, who blistered his heel which later developed 
into blood poisoning. While Emil was recovering from this ailment he developed 
pneumonia, keeping him out of the game until the final tilt with Notre Dame. Emil 
is a senior in the School of Dentistry and unfortunately will not be with the team 
next year, but those who have seen Emil play, and those who know him will always 
vouch for him and regret very much that he was on the sick list in his last year 
of College basketball. 

■ Within a few weeks the list of recruits had dwindled down to Hurtubise, Daley, 
Connelly, Wiatrak and Witry, leaving Sachs with nine men with which to start the 
hardest schedule of his career. Sachs had to break up, a promising forward combination 
of McGraw and Schlacks to drill Schlacks for the Center position left vacant by 
Dooley's injury. Wiatrak, Hurtubise, Witry, and Daley, who were High School players, 
had much to learn about College basketball. Wiatrak was matched with Devlin 
at Guard, while Hurtubise, Witry and Daley alternated at Forwards. 

On January 8, the team met their first foe in Lawrence College of Appleton, 
Wisconsin, Champions of the North Wisconsin Collegiate Conference. The Loyola 
team, despite the fact that this was their first game of the year, and that they had 
been practicing but for a short time, showed flashes of good team work and shooting 
ability that looked good for future games. The flashy attack of the Wisconsin 
Champs was too much for the Maroon basket men, however, and the game ended in 
a 22-11 victory for Lawrence. 

On Saturday night, January 11, the teachers from Kalamazoo took a slow' game 
from Loyola by a 20-12 score. The first half was decidedly in favor of the teachers, 
ending 13-7. Loyola took the offense in the second half but was unable to overcome 
the early lead. Dooley was high point man with three baskets. 

In the next game Loyola turned the tables and took a 23-11 victory over Lewis 
Institute of Chicago. The half showed a 7-7 deadlock, but the fine shooting of 


[Page 245] 

The LOYOLAN-1925 


Schlacks, who made 4 baskets and 3 free throws, and the guarding of Devlin and 
Wiatrak put Loyola in the lead at the gun. 

Loyola's next foe was St. Louis, whom they met on January 17. A very fast half 
ended in a 7-4 score in favor of St. Louis. At the start of the second half McGraw 
tied the score, which remained so until 5 minutes before the gun, when the Billikins 
broke loose and rang up 12 points. The Bradburn boys and Kale led the offense. 

On January 23 Loyola met the Arkansas Aggies and won a fast game 27-11. The 
visitors were always trailing and never threatened. Ed Wiatrak with 6 baskets, 
aided by Schlack's 3, McGraw's 4, led the offense, and sent the farmers home with 
a 37-11 lose. 

On January 31 Loyola traveled to South Bend to meet Notre Dame. The game 
showed many flashes including those of McGraw and Nyikos. Notre Dame's constant 
replacing of fresh men soon told on Loyola, and the game was dropped to N. D. 
by a 21-40 score. 

In the next game Loyola inaugurated athletic relations with Marquette University. 
It was by all means Loyola's best game, and was sprinkled with many brilliant plays 
on both sides. The game was decided only after an over time period had been played, 
which ended in a two point victory for Marquette, the score being 19-17. 

On February 11 the team showed all its stuff when it walked away with 33-11 win 
over Lake Forest. The score was more or less even through the first half ending 
in a 14-10 advantage for Loyola. The second half started off with a bang, Russ Dooley 
scoring a basket after Folgate's foul, followed by those of Devlin and McGraw. In 
the second half Sachs let some of the other boys do their tricks. Hurtubise, Witry and 
Daley got into the game and held the Foresters until the final whistle. 

February 21 the Varsity returned from the first trip of the season with the short 
end of a 25-15 score. Viators were the hosts at Kankakee and in a fast flashy game 
emerged the victors. The game was a little rough, and marred by frequent fouls on 
both sides. McGraw and Dooley did well in this contest, but Bowe and Donnelly 
were on that night and were not to be stopped. 

Loyola now started on a three game trip to Detroit. Their first game on February 20 
was dropped to Western State Normal in a hard fought contest. The game remained 
a tie the greater part of the time, but with two minutes to go Schrump sank a 
basket ending the game, victors of a 19-18 game. 

From Kalamazoo the boys traveled to Orchard Lake to St. Mary's College. 
The tough game threw the boys off their stride, and they dropped the game, 36-28. 
Howie was the only one who retained his eye for the basket, counting seven of them 
and adding four free throws for a total of eighteen points. 

A rest of one night seemed to work wonders for the boys, for they succeeded 
in taking the Detroit boys in a 22-18 game. The passing of the team was fast and 
accurate and they had their eyes on the rim. Howie was again high point man with 
three baskets and two free throws, followed by McGraw's two counters and one 
free throw. Dooley added five points to the score. 

Returning home the following week the Loyola squad met St. Viators for the 
second time. It was a very slow game, featured by Benda and Bowe of Viators 
who got four and five respectively, and Devline for Loyola who sank two counters. 
The score was 27-12. 

In the return game with Marquette, Loyola, worn out by a hard season, was 
again the loser of a 26-6 game. The game was slow and rough, many fouls being 
called on both sides. McGraw sank the lone basket for Loyola accompanied by 
two free throws. Wiatrak and Schlacks also sank a free throw apiece. Bader starred 
for Marquette. 

In the next and final game of the season Loyola met Notre Dame for the second 
encounter. The home team showed well and their floor work was equal to that of 
the visitors, but they were helpless against the uncanny shooting of Nyikos, the 
Notre Dame center. Schlacks showed some of the nicest floor work of the season, 
but his shots would not sink. At the end of the half the score was 15-7 in favor of 
the South Bend boys. The second half was slow, frequent substitutions being made 
on both sides. Hurtubise, Connelly and Kamin took part in this portion of the game. 
The game ended in a 19-11 victory for Notre Dame.

The Players 

WILLIAM DEVLIN, Captain. "Diz" had all the qualities that a good Captain should 
have. He was a real leader, a fine player and a fighter, always on the job, ready and willing 
to do his all for the University. "Diz" played a guard this year, a position which he has 
graced for the past two seasons, playing bang-up ball all of the time. He never missed 
a practice and played in every game. Besides being an expert player and a true sport on 
the floor, "Diz" is a real gentleman off the floor and ha sthe distinction of being a straight 
"A" man and class leader. Bill is a Junior in the School of Arts and Science on the North 
Side Campus and, as he promises, will return next year, which is looked upon as good 
news by both the football coach, Roger Kiley, and "Len" Sachs, the basketball coach.

EDWARD WIATRAK. "Big Ed" playing for his 
first year on the basketball squad at Loyola stepped right 
out and made a name for himself as a guard equal to, 
if not surpassing, that which he had built up for himself 
on the gridiron. Whitey is big. He weighs 200 pounds 
and the speed and agility with which he mans his huge 
carcass about the floor is amazing. Ed scintillated in his 
Academic days with the St. Ignatius Heavies, Catholic 
League Champions. The experience garnered in this cir- 
cuit coupled with the tutoring of Coach Sachs, an expert 
guard himself, tended to make Ed a big success, when 
coupled with Capt. Devlin at the defense positions. 
Wiatrak is in the Sophomore Class and is President in 
the College of Arts and Sciences and is a very likable 

"Hick," after a year's leave 
again appeared in line with 
the new men. His superior dribbling and excellency in 
executing long shots had been noted in his first year of 
basketball, and "Hick" was immediately placed among 
the regulars. Connelly played forward most of the time, 
but when called to fill center position left vacant through 
an injury, he willingly took the new job and more than did 
justice to it. Off the basketball floor "Hick" is an easy 
going fellow, very modest, and always ready to lend a 
helping hand. These traits were always visible in "Hick" 
and in all games he played clean cut hard basketball, and 
when it was possible always gave his teammates the 
chance to score the basket. "Hick" played the larger part 
of the season with a sprained ligament in his ankle, which 
made his floor work more or less uncertain. He is a 
Junior in the College of Arts and Sciences and will return 
next year. 

EDWARD HURTUBISE: Ed. the pony forward, 
stayed with the squad all year. He appeared regularly 
for every practice session and worked hard and earnestly. 
His reward will be the Loyola Monogram which he 
deserves to wear. Ed is small, fast and shifty, passes 
well and shoots accurately, and should be a great help 
to the squad in a few years, after he has observed the 
teachings of the Mentor Mr. Sachs

Intra-Mural Basketball Championship 

The Chicago College of Dental Surgery, Dental Department of Loyola University, 
playing for second season in the intercollege basketball tournament, won the Rev. Wm. 
Agnew Trophy, held for a year by the Law Department. After a series of hard fought 
and highly spectacular contests played on the Loyola floor, the Dental team emerged 
the victors over a fast and flashy field of the teams representing all the departments 
of the University. Small, fast and shifty, the embryo dentists outplayed and outpointed 
rest of the schools in seven consecutive contests. Besides winning the intra-mural 
basketball championship the dents won five other games, making, a clean sweep of the 
season. The dents deserve a great deal of credit for the interest they showed throughout 
the season and the high class of basketball which they furnished for the spectators in 
every contest. 

The intra-mural games were staged as curtain-raisers to the games played by the 
Varsity quintet. The high caliber of basketball displayed in these games and the 
interest manifested by the students in following their respective teams augured well 
for the continuance and growth of the intra-mural sports at the University. 

Much credit is due to Rev. James J. Walsh, S.J., faculty director of athletics at 
Loyola for the interest and co-operation he showed throughout the season, and to 
Roger Kiley and Len Sachs. 

All the departments showed keen interest throughout the season and all boosters 
of athletics in the University hope for the development of the Varsity quintet through 
the aid of this source of material.

Mr. J. F. Thorning, S.J. 

Mr. Joseph F. Thorning, S.J.. a young scholastic, a professor at Loyola University, 
deserves perhaps more credit than any other person in the University for the unusual success 
of Loyola's foremost athletic enterprises. The National Catholic Interscholastic Basketball 
Tournament and the Loyola Relays, both of which were athletic conventions of Xational 

Mr. Thorning, a capable, forward-looking man, conceived the idea of a Xational Catholic 
Tournament and had the initiative sufficient to put the tournament on the road to success as 
a National institution. He conceived the idea of the Loyola Relays, and so to him we must 
pay tribute for the success of both of these vast enterprises. 

The benefits accruing to Loyola University as a result of the enterprises are immeasur- 
able. The financial gain was perhaps the least of the benefits. Loyola has risen almost 
overnight from a school of local fame to a University of National prominence, with a name 
for true sportsmanship and unselfish hospitality. The publicity derived from Metropolitan 
newspapers throughout the country equaled that received by an University of the country 
this year. The effect which the promotion of the Tournament and the Relays had in 
moulding the Faculty, Students and Alumni together can easily be seen by the manner in 
which these distinct bodies worked as a unit for the success of the Tournament and Relays. 

Mr. Thorning saw the opportunity for Loyola. He took the helm in promoting and 
conducting the events, and he deserves a major part of the credit for their success and the 
lifelong gratitude of all real Loyola boosters.

The LOYOLAN-1925 

The Second Annual National Catholic 
Basketball Tournament 

The first annual Interscholastic Tournament had been conceived of a sudden, had 
become a reality in a dash, and was altogether a surprise to all followers of sport. 
Its success justified the expectation that the tournament this year would eclipse it- 
predecessor. This was the task before the tournament officials when they began working 
in September to fulfill that expectation of the people of Chicago and the team- of 
the nation. 

As soon as classes were resumed, Mr. Joseph F. Thorning, S.J., the author of 
the National Tournament, set about to build an elaborate and permanent organization, 
so that the meet would become almost automatic in the future. Mr. Roger Kiley, as 
Chairman of the Central Committee, was asked to take active charge of the work. 
The leaders in the Catholic League of Chicago High Schools were appointed to the 
Board of Directors. Mr. Wm. H. Powell was made Chairman of the Executive Com- 
mittee, of which John T. Dempsey, Jr., was Secretary, and on which both student 
leaders and men prominent in civil affairs were asked to serve. Mr. Thorning himself 
acted as Chairman of the Board, witli Mr. Leonard Sachs as Secretary. Under the 
direction of Mr. Kiley, the Senior Committee of students was established with Edwin 
J. Walsh as Chairman, and Vincent O'Connor and George Lane as the senior members, 
and Pat Boyle, Tom Stamm and Ed. Berwick as the junior members. Chairman 
Ed. Walsh then appointed the minor committees and the entire organization of the 
tournament was brought together. Mr. Devine, S.J., and Mr. Welfle, S.J., had charge 
of publicity and of the workers during the games. 

The reward of the earnest and sustained efforts and of a great organization came 
on March l 1 ), when the games opened before a packed gymnasium. The three sessions 
of the first three days, and the two sessions of the final games were played before an 
ever-filled house. The tickets for the finals were sold out long before the whistle blew 
for the tip-off. The answer to the query of how such success was attained lay in the 
great publicity accorded the tournament by every Chicago daily paper, and in the 
foresight of Mr. Thorning, wdio saw to it that posters, handbills, signs, and announce- 
ments brought the news of the great event to every furthermost corner of the city. 

But all this would have been to no avail had not the finest of Catholic sportsmen, 
representing thirty-two Catholic High Schools of eighteen states, provided that highest 
brand of basketball that Chicago has seen. The University took care that these men 
received the best of treatment while here, so that they could remain in ideal form to 
play. Mr. John T. Dempsey and Mr. Joseph A. Gauer, assisted by Harold Hillenbrand, 
handled all the work on the hotel accommodations at the Edgewater Beach Hotel, 
where the facilities of the nation's best in hostelry were offered to all the contestants. 

The light but clever Loyola Academy five lost a hard tussle to Aquinas Institute 
of Rochester, New York, in the second round of play. The St. Francis Mission Indians 
were dropped by the Tiny Saints from Louisville in the opening round. St. Viator High 
provided the most startling surprise of the meet by trouncing the popular southern 
five, St. Stanislaus, in the second bracket. St. Mel High of Chicago put joy into the 
hearts of their hundreds of admirers by capturing a nip-and-tuck encounter with a 
sensational basket in the last fifteen seconds of play. Decatur Catholic High took 
the wind out of Peoria's sails by putting last year's champs out of the running at the 
first crack. 22-24. Out of these and many more tight tussles, fraught with upsets, 
emerged the four teams who entered the final stretch: St. Mel High of Chicago, Mar- 
quette High of Milwaukee, Decatur Catholic High of Decatur, Ind., and Aquinas 
Institute of Rochester, New York. 

Aquinas won from Decatur in a spectacular contest, thereby winning third place. 
Thomas Mason, the diminutive forward from New York, was then awarded the Jack 
Schaak trophy as the most valuable player in the meet. In the championship game 
both teams showed the effects of grinding tournament play. But St. Mel, persisting 
in that dogged style which had carried it through four strenuous, stiff tussles by small 
scores, got the upper hand and Marquette was unable to overtake them. When the 
final shot closed the tournament, St. Mels were champions of the nation in inter- 
scholastic basketball by the score of 15-7. 

Fr. Agnew was assisted in the award of the trophies by the Bishops from Rochester 
and Wichita, Kansas. He thanked all those whose generous efforts had made this 
Second Annual National Tournament a colorful success, and paid fitting tribute to 
the man who, combining the qualities of the student with those of the administrator, 
had brought Loyola University to its place of leadership in national sport, Mr. Joseph 
F. Thorning, S.J. 

One other deserves especial mention. The wonder of the tournament, expressed 
by the thousands of those who attended, was the punctuality and smoothness with 
which all the details of the meet were executed during those four exciting days. For 
that, Mr. Roger Kiley, our Coach, was responsible.

The Loyola Relays 

One of the most startling surprises of western sportdom in the last six months 
was the announcement that Paavo Nurmi, the superman from Finland, would appear 
in the First Annual Relay Carnival of Loyola University, at Grant Park Stadium, on 
April 19, 1925. Many of the large Universities of the west, and numberless athletic 
associations have made every effort to sign up the great Finn, but all their potent 
influence had been to no avail. The news that Loyola had succeeded, without any 
heraldry, in convincing Nurmi that he should re-appear at Chicago, and make his outdoor 
debut here, fairly astounded them. 

In the First Annual Tournament an announcement was made that plans, however 
inchoate, were being made to stage a relay carnival at Loyola. The idea, born in the 
"fertile mind of Mr. Thorning," was given an auspicious moment for realization when 
one of the foremost drawing cards in athletic circles assured us he would appear. 
Immediately invitations were wired to many major Universities, Colleges, High Schools, 
and individual stars. Return wires brought encouraging acceptances, with expressions 
of warm congratulations on the inauguration of this great sport event. Both Mr. 
Thorning and Father Walsh worked incessantly, with the aid of Mr. Sachs and Mr. 
Kiley, who was promptly appointed director of the relays as a token of the confidence 
vested in him because of his splendid conduct of the tournament. 

Besides Nurmi and Ritola, countless stars announced their intention of appearing 
at Grant Park. In the special walking event, Ugo Frigerio, premiere athlete of Italy, 
entered against a strong field composed of Granville, Willie Plant, American title-holder, 
Zeller, N. A. A. U. champ., and Hawley, of the I. A. C. In the special mile event there 
entered the top-notchers from all over the country: Joie Ray, I. A. C; Lloyd Hahn, 
pride of Boston; Leo Larivee, of Holy Cross, inter-collegiate mile champ; Jimmy 
Connolly, Georgetown U. flash, and Melvin Schimek, Marquette, the sensation in the 
3000 meter run at the Illinois relays. 

Entering in the various events of the Decathlon were two great men, Harold Osborne, 
of the I. A. C, and Emerson Norton, Georgetown's winner of the Illinois relays. 

In the half mile run appeared Ray Watson, of the I. A. C, Lloyd Hahn, of Boston, 
Cusack, unattached, and Ray Dodge, I. A. C. The prominent Finn, Liewendahl, also 
signed up for the half mile. 

In the pole vault Chicago saw John Paul Jones, of the I. A. C, and Laddie Meyers, 
of the Cherry Circle. Jones matched Dowling of Georgetown in the broad jump. 

Jackson Scholz, of the I. A. C, the "flying dutchman" of Olympic fame, ran Tom 
Wiley, Columbia College's high point man of the Western-Interstate Conference, in 
the hundred yard dash. 

Irving, another Olympic champion, did the two-mile steeplechase.

Besides these individual stars, track representatives from prominent Universities 
were listed in the Relay Events. Chief among these were Holy Cross College, of 
Worcester, Mass., Georgetown U., of Washington, 1). C, Notre Dame U., of South 
Bend, Ind., and Marquette U., of Milwaukee, Wis. Loyola University contested against 
St. Louis University, our athletic rivals. Loyola Academy entered one of the strongest 
teams in the High School department, in which many of the city's Catholic Academies 
were listed. Chicago High Schools put in their best representatives, too. 

Indicative of the caliber of the event is the roster of officials. Mr. Charles Dean, 
of the Illinois Athletic Club, who had charge of the Olympic team last year, held a 
similar position in the Loyola Relays. Maj. Griffith, Commissioner of Athletics in the 
Western Conference, known as the big ten, was in charge of the officialism in whose 
number are found names familiar and esteemed. Mr. Michael Igoe, State Representative 
and Georgetown Alumnus, was an honorary official. 

The sky is the limit. Our University, awakened by the vigor and acumen of its 
faculty, is alive at last to its infinite possibilities in the sport world. Possessed of an 
advantage that no other University holds, the good will of three millions of people 
living without a small radius of the scenes of its activities, Loyola University has 
leaped to the fore and filled a long-felt, crying need in conducting the National Tourna- 
ment; in presenting to Chicago the Loyola Relays, therein- affording to every Chicagoan 
the envied opportunity of seeing the makers of track history perfom in their own 
municipal stadium, the University has established itself in a indisputable position of 
leadership, in which further enterprise is not only made possible but expected. 

Loyola can thank Mr. Thorning for his tireless and able efforts in its behalf. It 
can thank Fr. Walsh for his work. It surely appreciates the labors that Coach Kiley 
and Mr. Sachs have added to their own to help put Loyola University where she 
belongs — in the fore. We, the students, at once congratulate these men and their 
generous associates, and assure them that whatever assistance we have mustered together 
to offer them in these triumphs will be multiplied ten-fold when we are again called 
upon to carry out their brilliant and transcending ideas.

ROGER KILEY, head coach of athletics, despite 
the numerous demands upon his services due to spring 
football practice, took personal charge of baseball. 
His love and knowledge of the game as well as his 
exceptional skill as a player and as judge of baseball 
material rendered him eminently fitted as coach of 
this sport. While at College he made a reputation as a 
baseball player which merited for him the captaincy- 
while in his senior year and attracted the attention of 
big league scouts who held out many flattering offers 
to join the professional ranks. These latter he declined, 
but summer finds him playing with the semi-pro league 
which does not claim so much ot his time. 

Mot the least among the reasons for Coach Kiley's 
successin this as in other sports is that certain intang- 
ible something which he designate by the term quality 
of leadership. 


Review of the Season 

The basketball season had not yet been brought to a close when battery practice was 
begun in the gym, and for many weeks before outdoor practice could be held the pitchers 
and catchers were limbering up for the tough grind of the season. The first warm breeze 
that swept over the campus brought out about fifty promising candidates and the battle for 
positions started. 

The wealth of material on hand was soon evident, and cutting in order to secure a less 
cumbersome outfit was rather a difficult matter, and performed only after the ability of 
the players began to show itself in the scrub games. Here the "batting eyes" and "baseball 
heads" receive the test which decided whether they would remain on the team. The worth 
of the team composed of the members who survived the successive cuts bespeaks of the 
rivalry and almost evenly matched ability of the candidates. 

About sixteen men were retained and work was begun to develop the players to the 
best of their capacity and secure co-ordination among the team as a whole. Long and 
intense batting and fielding practices were engaged in daily. In these two departments, with 
the help of special attention from Coach Kiley, players hitherto possessing only mediocre 
ability were uncovered as possible luminaries, who with a little grooming should provoke 
offers from the big circuits. 

By this time the interest of the student body in the prospects of the team was pretty 
well aroused and every one waited anxiously for the opening game. Numerous students 
were on hand every night encouraging the players to their utmost, and this contributed in 
no small way to the success of the season, for it is an undisputed fact that we do our best 
work when we realize that our efforts are appreciated. 

There were no weak spots in the lineup. Some surpassed others in different depart- 
ments of the game, it is true, but every one possessed ability which placed him far above the 
average. In addition each had that experience which means so much in the success of any 
athletic undertaking. Team work, which is essential for the success of every sport was, 
and it could not otherwise be expected, the only element wanting. By dint of long and 
intense practice under the weather eye of the coach this was acquired until the whole 



[Page 258] 


functioned perfectly. The unity of the work upon the field gave proof of the harmony 
among the players and coach. 

The practice games, as practice games are meant to do, showed Coach Kiley just where 
the team needed polishing, and pointed out the probable batting order, which was perma- 
nently arranged before the pre-season encounters were all played. Those who were con- 
sistently the handiest with the stick came to the fore and remained there during the entire 
seasi m. 

The pitchers were given equal chances to show their wares in the course of the 
practice games, and the beneficial results of their long training were evidenced in the 
fine ball that was pitched. Five of the numerous candidates for the mound position were 
retained. These composed a pitching staff the equal of which is seldom found in 
amateur baseball. 

The 1924 baseball season may be looked back upon in the years to come as a very 
creditable and successful season, not only by those who composed the team and by the 
students who gave it such loyal support, but by those students who will compose and 
support the baseball teams of Loyola in the future. 


[Page 259] 


The Games 

Through the courtesy of Garland Buckeye, who helped coach the pitchers, and Johnny 
Overlook, Loyola played the Union Trust Company, champion of the Bank League, two 
games at our own field. The s.eries was divided, each team winning one game apiece. 


La Salle Extension University fell before the terrific hitting of Loyola to the tune of 
17-7. Hasset, Dooley and Brew were on the mound for Loyola and all three turned in a 
good brand of pitching. Both Devlin and Lundgoot of Loyola connected for home runs, 
while O'Neil and Trahan each copped three hits. For the La Salle bunch Shanahan did 
the best stick work. 


Russ Dooley pitched great ball down at Valparaiso for nine innings, but in the tenth 
his teammates cracked with one out and the winning run was sent across. The game was 
well played, both team hitting in fine spurts, Dooley, however, keeping the enemy's hits well 
scattered for the most part throughout. Loyola's nemesis was Valpo's husk3> catcher, Ander- 
son. He hit four singles and every one came with men on the sacks, one of his pokes 
going for a home run to left field. Jerry O'Neil also connected for a homer, while Adams, 
Lavin and Sutherland each collected a triple. 


Kiley's Alma Mater beat Loyola 5-0 at Notre Dame in a game which was much more 
interesting than the score indicates. In the first two innings Len McGraw, who drew the 
pitching assignment, and his backers were a bit nervous, and with a break or two Notre 
Dame had four runs across the plate. Notre Dame gathered only seven hits off McGraw. 
who pitched a great game, but when they did manage to get them there always seemed to 
be men on the bags. McGrath and Stange both pitched good ball for the home team, hold- 
ing our boys to five hits. But for a break in the initial frame the game might have been 
different. Adams and Stuckey both singled in order and Trahan walked; Lavin came 
through with a creaming liner over short. Sheehan, Notre Dame's shortstop, converted 
the drive into a double play and thus ended Loyola's chances of scoring and jumping into 
the lead. The Notre Dame outfit noticeable showed the benefit of their southern trip. 


We traveled out to River Forest for our next game and dropped it to Concordia College, 
7-5. Wildness of Brew, combined with a couple of errors, gave the home team's pitcher 
enough runs to win the game. Dooley later relieved Brew and his first ball pitched was 
greeted with a hit, scoring a man. He then settled down and displayed some good twirling. 


The next day Loyola traveled over to the Chicago Normal grounds and slaughtered 
the college team, turning in a shutout, 12 to 0. The Loyolans stepped out in the very first 
inning and pushed across three markers and then scored at least one more in every other 
frame except the third and fifth. O'Neil was the slugger for our crew, getting four pretty 
singles for himself, while Jacobs, playing the outfield, slammed one out for four bases. All 
together our wrecking outfit collected sixteen single, including Kanaby's two-bagger and 
Hasset's triple. Hasset toiled for us and was in rare form, the losers touching him for a 
lone hit, 

The team journeyed down to Rensaeller, Ind., to take on the St. Joseph College team at 
their homecoming, but were rained out. a steady downpour making the game impossible. 


The Loyola batters treated Farber. Crane's fast ball artist, to a warm afternoon_ at 
Loyola on Saturday, May 9th. Trahan. Southerland and O'Neil each connected safely 
twice, Jerry's two blows, one a double, coming in the pinch, and carried over four counters. 
Bill Flynn served them up to the West Siders, and rendered only one scratch hit. He was 
backed by some sparking play on the part of his mates, who went through the afternoon's 
performance without a single slip-up. 


The second game of the season against Valpo ended in a bad defeat for Loyola. 
Unlike the first tilt the fielding was ragged, the hitting poor, and altogether ragged ball 
was played by the Loyola players, whereas Valpo's team took advantage of every error 
and made everything count. 


The tables were turned in the second encounter of the two teams within a few weeks. 
Viator seemed to have all the pep exhibited in the game. The game began with even- 
indication of a good slab duel but before the fifth inning was over Brew blew up and 
Viator gained a comfortable lead which was never endangered.

The St. Viator nine, fighting for leadership in the 

Little Nineteen and Interstate Conferences, came to 

Loyola field with a string of victories trailing them and 

were chucked full of confidence due to their easy dis- 
posal of our neighbor De Paul for the count of 8 to 1 

the day previous. Kiley had Lefty McGraw all primed 

for this stiff game, and although he had to extend 

himself to the limit many times, the port sider went 

the full route of 13 innings for Loyola. McAllister 

was selected to hurl for the Viator outfit and pitched a 

good brand of ball but weakened toward the end. being 

replaced by Donnelly who was hopped upon for 3 runs 

in the final frame, enough to cop the game. 

The home crew stepped out into the lead in the 

first inning, Stuckey singling and Trahan drawing a 

walk ; O'Neil scored Stuckey with a clean wallop over 

short. Two more were added in the second on sure 

hits by Lavin and Stalzcr with men on and Adams' 

bingle pushed one over in the third. A fast double 

play, Stalzer to Adams, spoiled Viator's chances for 

scoring in their first attempt at bat, but in the third 

inning the visiting sticks got to cracking and before 

they stopped four runs were sent across. Errors and 

some timely bingles by both teams ran the scoio "p 

to 9 to 6 in the seventh in favor of St. Viators, but 

McAllister now suffered a temporary relapse and 

hits were showered upon him, our bunch coming 

from behind to tie it up 9 all. Donnelly then took 

the mound for the visitors and hurled clever ball up to the thirteenth. In the meantime 

McGraw and his teammates found themselves in bad holes, but each time Lefty cleverly 

pitched himself out. The thirteenth frame furnished the turning point of the fracas and 

Viators putting over two but Loyola coming back in their half with three, Deegan's clean 

smash bring home the winning counter. Adams provided the feature hit with a long homer 

over the right fielder's head. 

Hasset displayed rare form allowing Crane not a single hit. Paul showed a steadiness 

that is hard to believe, and never let himself into a squeeze which he could not come out of 

with a slide. Loyola pounded the only tallies of the game over in the second, third and 

seventh innings. 

Bill Flynn pitched his best game against his old teammates and bested them after ten 

innings of superb hurling. St. Joe played good ball all the way throufh and kept our men 

on their toes until the winning run was sent across in the tenth. 

Dooley, assisted by the clout- 
ing of his teammates, white- 
washed Beloit in a farcial^ game 
on the home grounds. Numer- 
ous Beloit pitchers were used in 
a futile attempt to stop the whole- 
sale home runs that our players 
were pounding at will. Pitching 
was the principal defect in the 
Beloit outfit, the fielding being 
fairly free from errors. Loyola 
simply put them over the field- 
ers' heads and scampered around 
around the diamond. 
Poor hitting and pitching 
were responsible for the defeat 
at the hands of the Milwaukee 
teachers. Brew let six runs 
across before settling down in 
the fifth inning, and then his 
teammates failed to show- a like 
improvement in hitting. A rally 
in the ninth was cut short when 
we had sent two counters across.

The Players 

ADAMS, IB. Marv displayed real ability at the initial sack and shattered the general 
belief that a first baseman must be long and lean. Marv measures above five five. On the 
diamond as on the gridiron he was known to have more pep than would fill one twice his 
size were it crystallized. As captain of the 1924 football team Marv has become an athlete 
of note and his achievements in baseball add to his already numerous laurels. 

DEEGAN, C. The difficult job of backstop was well taken care of by Jim, in fact it is 
hard to see how it could have been better managed. Jim was a star at this position during 
his high school day when he distinguished himself by his stellar work behind the plate. 
Few people appreciate the task which confronts a catcher but this in no way renders the 
task easier. 

DOOLEY, P. Hurling, as is generally recognized, is the most important factor in the 
success of a team and Russ did his share of good mound work. Having had considerable 
experience in this line Russ had little difficulty in demonstrating his ability to the best 
of advantage. 

BREW, P. Wazz was another of the pitching staff that did such noteworthy twirling 
throughout the season. When in the right form he could not be beaten. 

FLYNN, P. An important cog in the machine was big Bill. Always a consistently 
good pitcher, he could do some brilliant hurling when the occasion demanded. 

LAVIN, RF. In addition to being one of the most adept with the bat Frank is 

reputed to have a better baseball head than any one on the team. He has grown up with 

baseball as his favorite sport and now displays that skill which is only acquired after long 
pracice and with love of the game. 

STALZER, 3B. Third is a hot enough position under ordinary conditions and one 
which will keep any ordinary third baseman on his toes, but Clar played the position on 
an uneven field with an ease and grace that would have done justice to one in the majors. 
In addition to this his batting was among the most consistent. His ability is testified to 
by the fact that he was elected captain for the present year. 

O'NEIL, CF. Jerry's long legs enabled him to cover the garden with ease and surety. 
His batting eye earned for him the cleanup position in the batting order and the highest 
average at the close of the season. Jerry was the only Senior on the team. 

TRAHAN, 2B. Nose dives, leaps and every other sort of sensational playing featured 
Jimmy's brilliant work throughout the season. More often than not what appeared to be 
a sure hit was nailed by him for an out. He established himself as a consistent batter as 
well as the flashiest player in the outfit. lie finished well up in the batting avera 

STUKEY, SS. Good consistent playing was Bill's claim to the success shared by the 
team. At bat he up with the rest and finished the season with a good average. The hot 
grounders of this position he handled ably and surely at all times. 

HASSET, P. At all times throughout the season Paul's reserve strength was there 
to be relied upon. He shared equal honors with the rest of th estaff in the mound work. 

SUTHERLAND, CF. A worthy fellow gardener of the two already mentioned was 
Southerland, just as sure with the flies as with the bat. 

McGRAW, P. By those who knew him. Lefty was considered the mainstay of the 
delivery men. Although he had hard time getting started, his true form showed itself 
many times throughout the season and more than once pulled the team out of the hole.

As a result of the policy of athletic expansion inaugurated last year and carried on 
very effectively this year by the Faculty Board of Athletic Control, Loyola University 
will be again in the field for athletic honors in tennis. 

The first call of the season brought forth as many as thirty candidates for the 
representative University team. Among the prospects for a berth on the squad were 
the veterans of last year's team, A. Kramps, a medical student, and the Bremner boys 
from the Lake Shore Campus. Emmet Hogan and Mike Pauley were perhaps the best 
of the new men, although Dan Healey, of the Law School, has done some very good 
work to date and shows promise of supplanting some of the old men. 

The results of last year's schedule, in which Loyola won more than half of its 
games, indicated to the Managerial Staff that a rather stiff schedule could be arranged 
and played very creditably by the Varsity courtmen. With this in mind the manager 
has arranged a schedule stiffer than the Loyola netmen have ever tackled. Games have 
been arranged with such formidable opponents as Notre Dame, Marquette, Concordia. 
Lake Forest, Y. M. C. A. College and Crane. 

The prospects seem to be bright for a successful season and Loyola Boosters 
have great expectations in this year's team. We all hope that the netmen just entering 
upon their second season will soon raise tennis to an equally high place that the other 
sports at Loyola have reached in a short span of three years.

Lars Lundgoot, Ice Skater 

Loyola University had the distinction of being represented this year throughout 
the entire season by the only University Ice Skating team in the City of Chicago. The 
team was what is commonly known as a one man team, the sensational figure being 
the Flying Sophomore, Lars Lundgoot, representing the University for the second 
season on the ice. Lars flashed through a very successful season. He bore the colors 
of the University in all the leading events of the year, against the best field of ice 
skaters ever assembled in Chicago. 

Lars placed in every event he entered during the season, and in several different 
meets piled up a total of from 40 to 60 points, which is quite a remarkable record for 
a one man team. 

The meets in which he caused the name of Loyola University to appear in the 
point column were those conducted by the Alverno A. A., The Austin Columbus Skating 
Association, The Northwest Skating Club, The Norge Skating Club, and the Chicago 
Tribune Skating Derby. 

Loyola is proud of Lundgoot's remarkable record and wishes him every best wish 
for success on the ice next year, when he will again represent Loyola.

The Loyola University Golf Team 

Loyola University will be represented for the second year by a representative golf team. 
Last year a team was organized late in the season and went through a small, but very stiff, 
schedule, combating such teams as Notre Dame, Armour, Lake Forest, etc. The showing 
that the team made in their first season was creditable and encouraged the Faculty Board 
of Athletic Control to call out a team again this season, and to arrange an even heavier 
schedule than the previous season. Most of last year's regulars reported again this season 
to form the nucleus of this golf team. 

The men who reported for the first practice of the year were C. T. Fitzpatrick. Bob 
Sullivan, Morrissy, J. R. Emien, McDonough, Nash, and ten other new men who looked very

The Lytton 

College Shop 

Has gained the favor of College Men 
for these important reasons: 

1. Its varieties include the leading 
manufacturer's smartest styles and 

2. It is a separate shop within the 
store — maintaining a friendly and 
exclusive atmosphere. 

3. It enjoys the very definite econo- 
mies resulting from our tremen- 
dous business. 

4. It is constantly showing the newest 
style ideas regardless of the season. 

No other Store or Shop can offer 
such a combination of advantages.

is one to which we have given a great deal of 
thought. For years we have enjoyed the privi- 
lege of making clothing for college men and it is 
very gratifying to see the large number of them 
who have grown up in the business world and 
who continue to buy Jerrems tailoring because 
they know they always get dependable quality 
at prices they know are right.

The LOYOLAN-1925 

An Irishman fresh from the old country had 
gotten on the crowded rush hour subway at 
the Battery and had hung by a strap all the 
way to 125th street. Vainly he waited for 
someone to leave the car, so he could get a 
seat. But finally his temper got the better 
of him and he roared in a loud voice: "And 
have yez all no homes?" — Harvard Lampoon. 

"There's a fly in my coffee, 
Look close and you'll see," 

Cried the impetuous man to the waiter. 
"Well, keep still and don't touch. 
It won't drink very much — ■ 

As a glutton you quite overrate her." 

Judge — "Did you choke your wife?" 
Big Bruit — "No, your honor ; she swallowed 
a button and I just put my fingers around her 
throat to keep it from going down." — Michigan
