I congratulate the editors of the 1927 Loyolan upon their splendid 
literary and artistic achievement. It is a pleasure and a gratification 
to note the fact that each successive group of editors is able to con- 
tribute some new and enhancing quality to the perfections which have 
made previous editions of the Loyolan notably good. It is likewise a 
pleasure and a gratification to note that each year the steady, sym- 
metrical growth of university activities supplies new subject matter for 
record and commemoration in the annual. 

May the perusal of this graphic compendium of the spent year's 
history bring pleasure and satisfaction to those who have collaborated 
by participation or encouragement in the making of that history. May 
it also powerfully stimulate the activities, already in their germ, of the 
years now in waiting to be ushered upon the stage of reality, so that it 
may continue to be said of those years in turn, and of the editions of 
the Loyolan which enshrine their histories, that each successive one is 
"the best to date."

The true educator, in the Catholic sense of the word, is 
essentially an artist. The student as well as the teacher shares 
this denomination. Both must collaborate if the work of art 
about which both are supremely concerned shall come into being. 
It comes into being as through their joint efforts the student 
grows in intellectual power and skill, as he gains a finer appercep- 
tion and a deeper appreciation of the true, the beautiful, the 
good, as his interests and sympathies expand beyond self and 
transcending the confines of home and campus embrace more and 
more of his fellow beings with their multiform temporal and spirit- 
ual problems, as he acquires "the perfect exercise and kingly 
continence of body and soul," in a word, as there are reproduced 
not on dead canvas or in inert marble but in rebellious flesh and 
blood, in a refractory mind and a perverse heart, in an intractable 
imagination and in treacherous feelings, the sublime features of 
the ideal — the young man of Nazareth. 
That in the workshop of our College this art of arts has been cultivated during the 
past year to a degree that entitles faculty and students to enjoy the satisfaction of the 
successful artist I believe is fairly apparent. I would call attention to the superior work 
done in the class room, to the keen interest taken and the notable success achieved in in- 
tellectual endeavors outside the class room — in literary endeavors such as the Loyolan 
(the reader may judge from the evidence in his hand) the Loyola Quarterly, the Loyola

News, in the Philosophical Academy, 
in dramatics, in debating; I would call 
attention to the spirit of initiative and 
co-operation exhibited in the activities 
of the Student Council ; I would refer 
to the fine type of sportsmanship de- 
veloped by our athletes; above all I 
would appeal to the evidences of a 
sublimated, a deepened and a broad- 
ened religious life through the annua 
retreat and the Sodality — to the gen- 
erous practical interest in the missions, 
in Catholic literature and in Catholic 
social action, to the uniquely devout 

and thrillingly eager participation in the Holy Sacrifice every Friday morning, to the 
long rows of partakers of the Holy Eucharist, to the pledge to Christ of undying friend- 
ship and loyalty, to the many frequent visitors at the abode of the Divine Friend of 
youth. No, we did not succeed completely. Some of our productions are still in an in- 
choate state, all need further care and development, none reached final perfection. But 
enough was accomplished to justify a feeling of pride and satisfaction on the part of the 
faculty and the students and to evoke sentiments of gratitude to the Giver of all good 
gifts Who shed His blessings so abundantly upon our efforts.

What was done in the Downtown College during the 1926- 
1927 school year? As stated elsewhere, we moved from the Ash- 
land Block to our own home at 28 North Franklin Street, but 
this did not prevent the scholastic progress of the different schools 
sharing the Downtown College building. 

The total attendance in Liberal Arts and Social Service 
classes totalled 1,838. Of this number, 176 belong to the Gradu- 
ate School, which this year became a separate unit under the 
direction of Father Austin G. Schmidt, S. J. The undergradu- 
ates are divided into Liberal Arts and Social Service students. 
The Liberal Arts students are for the most part teachers — lay 
and religious, and the social service students are nurses or pros- 
pective social workers, salaried and volunteer. During the past 
year, special efforts were made to encourage nurses to further 
their studies with the ultimate purpose of obtaining a Bachelor 
of Science degree. As a consequence, nearly one hundred nurses 
are now among the sociology students. Even in the L. A. courses 
the social viewpoint is stressed and the economics and sociology 
classes are well attended. Next year, classes in Hospital Admin- 
istration and Occupational Therapy with laboratory courses will be introduced. 

Not the least feature of the Downtown College is its summer sessions. In the 1926 
Summer School there were 657 students and just now fifteen thousand summer bulletins 
outlining forty-six courses have been put into the mails. The Summer School will be 
especially helped by the new library which besides the school library, will contain a 
Chicago Public Library deposit with a circulation of fifteen hundred volumes. This will 
be a great convenience, especially to the nuns. 

A 1926-1927 innovation of the School was the organization of a public Lecture

Course in Fullerton Hall of the Art 
Institute. All these lectures were 
given to capacity audiences. 

The Downtown School so arranges 
its schedules that the component 
schools share in the use of the entire 
building. The Law School uses it every 
morning and three nights a week and 
this year counts 254 students. The 
Commerce School uses it five nights 
a week and counts 209 students. 

On account of the ample library- 
facilities there is a notable improve- 
ment of the private study of both Law 
and Commerce students and this is a 
hopeful sign, for without better stand- 
ards and higher scholarship the newer and ampler physical facilities of the school 
would have little worth. Mr. John Vincent McCormick, who has been promoted 
from Acting Dean to Dean of the School of Law, has just issued a Summer School 
catalog and has announced that next year there will be law classes in the afternoon as 
well as in the morning and evening. 

The most comforting thought of the faculty of all the Downtown Schools is that 
they are providing standard college courses for students who for one reason or another 
cannot take their courses on the campus, and that these students for the most part will 
use their education, not only for social and economic advancement, but for cultural and 
religious profit.

The Law School of Loyola University stands on the threshold 
of a new era. It has had an enviable record of progress from 
its founding in 1908 and the road has not been smooth; it requires 
toil to build a law school from its foundation. At the time the 
Law School was organized it consisted of eight men instructed in 
the evenings in the law offices of their teachers with no library 
except the ordinary lawyer's library of their instructors. 

The school has since grown to a student body of two-hun- 
dred and fifty-four, with a day and evening division. A library 
of over seven thousand volumes, with well arranged reading 
rooms is available and the school occupies a building owned by 
the University which is admirably adapted for its purposes. 

The scholastic year of 1926-1927 marks a great step onward 
in the progress of the school. The beginning of the year found us 
in the small, confined quarters at 155 N. Clark St. At the close 
of the year settled in our new building at 28 N. Franklin St., we 
are adequately prepared to render a greater service to the cause of legal education. 
During the next decade our progress must be even greater. We are building for the en- 
suing years and both the faculty and the students are the trustees for future generations. 
Next year we have our eyes on even greater expansion. A summer session will be 
held, during which standard courses with full credit will be offered and from all signs the 
attendance will be encouraging. Beginning next fall, classes will also be held in the after- 
noon, making a schedule with classes available at any time in the day. This should prove

a great convenience to the students 
and should result in a notable increase 
in the student body. This innovation 
is made possible by the splendid 
facilities of the new building, which 
has provided enough space to allow 
for these classes without conflicting 
with the classes held in the afternoon 
by the Downtown College. 

The Graduate Law School was 
this year transferred from the imme- 
diate jurisdiction of the Law School 
and placed under the direction of 
the newly-organized Graduate De- 
partment, in accordance with the 
concentration of all graduate work 
under Dean Austin G. Schmidt. The 

work done in that department has been on a very high plane during its two years of 
life and there is no doubt that the placing of it under the environment of the Graduate 
School will do much toward advancing the scope and importance of the work. 

It should be our endeavor, and one in which we shall succeed through the coopera- 
tion of the faculty and student body to send out from this school, men who are not only 
learned in the law and able to attain proficiency in practice at the Bar but men who have 
had instilled into them a higher sense of their duty to the courts, their profession and 
themselves and who shall by their conduct in the office and in the forum advance the 
cause of justice and maintain the highest standards of the ancient and honorable pro- 
fession of the law.

As we look back at the conclusion of each scholastic year 
there are certain outstanding happenings that have occurred 
that we look upon with feelings of pride, satisfaction and happi- 
ness. We like to recall these incidents to our memory because 
they represent something achieved, and indicate that there is a 
healthy spirit of scientific growth in the School of Medicine. 

Senior students look forward each year to the awarding of 
places as the result of the competitive examination for internship 
in Cook County Hospital. Our Seniors this year were most 
fortunate in securing fifteen, or one-fourth, of the sixty available 
places. This is an enviable record for the Senior class of any 
medical school to achieve, and represents twice the number that 
we have ever secured before. 

The development of facilities for the teaching of contagious 
diseases in the Municipal Contagious Hospital has done much to 
strengthen Loyola's position as an outstanding medical school 
of the country. The newer method of teaching practical obstet- 
rics, in which we are utilizing all of the Catholic hospitals in this 
great archdiocese, establishes a teaching method well worthy of 
The development of St. Bernard's Hospital as a teaching unit has been a great 
boom to our institution. The affiliation with Oak Park Hospital promises much for the 
coming year after the details of organization have been perfected. 

The remodeling of the Medical Building, which took place last year, is still showing 
its beneficial effects and there is now doubt but that the heavy enrollment — applications 
were much in excess of the necessary limit — can be traced in part to the splendid facilities 
which'the present building affords. 

In student activities the Medical students have been very prominent and interested

and are beyond a doubt playing more 
than their share in the building up of 
activities shared in by the entire 
University. The spirit which exists 
among the students is one of the 
highest caliber and this is in many 
ways responsible for the splendid 
scholarship displayed at every oppor- 
tunity. Outside activities have been 
indulged in, not at the expense of 
scholarship, but rather in cooperation 
with it. 

The general growth and prosper- 
ity of the Medical School has been 
one of the most satisfying features of 
the University's life. During the 
ten years of its existence as such 

it has come through a most trying period in the history of medical schools in general, 
when all outside forces were against its very existence, and it has slowly, but surely, and 
mainly by the constructive scholarship of its students, the splendid careers of its gradu- 
ates and the excellent effort of its faculty risen to a position of honor and respect in the 
great field of medical education. 

We are encouraged, therefore, by the results of the labors of the year that is clos- 
ing and are encouraged to hope for greater and better things in the years that are to

Chicago College of Dental Surgery, Dental Department 
of Loyola University, will open its forty-fifth session on Tuesday 
evening, October 4, 1927. The occasion will mark the beginning 
of another year of one of the pioneer dental schools of the world, 
whose past has placed it on the highest level of dental education. 

1 )ue to the many important changes which have recently 
been made in requirements for entrance into dental colleges, the 
Dental Department takes this opportunity to outline preliminary 
educational requirements and details of the dental curriculum 
to the student body of the University. The information given 
will be of particular interest to prospective dental students and 
to those in the general college course who have not yet decided 
as to their future vocation. 

To fulfill the entrance requirements the College exacts as 
preliminary education for matriculation in the freshman class of 
the four-year dental course, graduation from the four-year, 
fifteen unit, general course of an accredited high school and in 
addition thereto the successful completion of thirty semester 
hours of recognized college work. 

The College of Arts and Sciences offers a pre-dental college year which has been 
formulated with the intention of especially preparing students for the four-year dental 
course. The work is given part in the downtown college, 28 North Franklin Street, and 
part in the dental building; thus placing the student in immediate contact with associates 
whose interests are in common and who are doing advanced work with which the pre- 
dental student is most vitally concerned. 

The Chicago College of Dental Surgery offers an unusual opportunity to those 
students who in addition to high school graduation, have completed at least sixty semester 
hours of recognized college work toward the B. A. or B. S. degree, including a minimum

of six semester hours each of English, 
of Biology or Zoology, of Physics, 
of Inorganic Chemistry and three 
semester hours of Organic Chemis- 
try. Students possessed of the fore- 
going credits may matriculate in the 
dental course and are eligible for 
graduation at the end of three years. 
Those availing themselves of this op- 
portunity may receive a B. S. degree 
at the successful completion of the 
third year of the dental curriculum, 
provided the subject credit obtained 
in their Arts and Science course com- 
bined with the credit obtained in 
the dental course totals the equiv- 
alent in subject, scope and grade required for the B. S. degree of Loyola University. 
Chicago College of Dental Surgery, Dental Department of Loyola University, is a 
Class A dental college under the ruling and regulations of the Dental Educational Coun- 
cil of America. It is located on the West Side Campus, in Chicago's great Medical and 
Dental Center, where professional life prevails and conditions are most conducive to 
study along the lines in which the student has a predominating interest. The institution 
has been most fortunate in attracting that type of students whose subsequent careers 
have reacted to the greater renown of the school and placed them amongst the leaders 
of the profession. It has graduated nearly five thousand dentists, ten of whom are, or 
have been, deans of other dental colleges; many of whom are recognized both at home and 
abroad as authorities in their respective specialties. With a past that has never been 
excelled, the College has a prospect for the future which promises even to eclipse its 
previous achievements.

The third year of the School of Commerce has been success- 
ful in many ways. The attendance has increased materially, new- 
courses have been added to the curriculum, and the School has 
moved to its present quarters in the new Downtown College. The 
scholarship of the students, on the whole, has been quite grati- 
fying and their college spirit has improved considerably, due to 
an awakened interest in the social events of the Universitv and 
an active participation in intra-mural sports. 

The development of class and other organizations, a slow 
process, and one that seemed impossible at the start, has at last 
come into reality, and with it a birth of real university spirit. 
For the first time, the School of Commerce is represented in the 
Loyolan by class groups and officers. There is every reason to 
believe that this organization, and also and emphatically the. 
new but flourishing Commerce Club, is doing much toward devel- 
oping this splendid spirit. 
The splendid faculty of the Commerce School is deserving of the greatest thanks 
for the part they have played in making the school what it is now. The faculty is a 
perfectly balanced one, consisting partly of men who also teach on the North Side Campus 
and partly of men who are engaged during the day in the varied occupations which they 
teach during the evening. Thus the school has the advantage of both backgrounds, that 
of a collegiate and scholastic atmosphere leading to a scholarly and cultural research, 
and that of a practical environment of experience, leading to ready familiarity with

modern business life and conditions. 

In our new location, the School of 
Commerce is equipped to handle at 
least four times the present enroll- 
ment. Beginning next year we will 
offer complete four-year courses in Ac- 
counting, Business Administration 
and Merchandising. We have a cur- 
riculum of proven merit, an accessible 
location, reasonable hours and com- 
pletely appointed class rooms. If every 
student of Loyola, regardless of de- 
partment, will bear this in mind and 
suggest us to prospective students of 

commercial and pre-legal subjects, who are unable to attend day classes, it would not be 
long until we reached the maximum figure. 

I beg to be excused for taking this opportunity to indulge in a "sales talk." How- 
ever the principal endeavor of all who are interested in the Commerce School is to obtain 
an enrollment worthy of our splendid building. In doing this, we do not intend to sacri- 
fice standards; on the contrary, we are in an excellent position to insist on the highest grade. 

i am very thankful for the hearty cooperation I have received from the faculty and 
student-body during the year.

During the academic year of 1925-26, control of all graduate 
work done in the various colleges of the University was entrusted 
to a graduate Council of nine members, appointed by the presi- 
dent. The Graduate Council has exclusive power to legislate 
concerning graduate work in all the units of the University and 
is responsible only to the President and the Board of Trustees. 
Its functions are to pass upon the standing of institutions send- 
ing students for graduate work, to determine entrance and 
graduate requirements and to initiate activities which will lead 
to the fuller development of the spirit of research and of graduate 

The purpose of the Graduate School is to develop in students 
the spirit of research, to give training in the use of the tools of 
research and to give instruction of an advanced character in 
certain specialized fields. Graduate students should realize that 
they cannot give satisfaction by merely acquiring a set amount 
of credit with a prescribed grade. These mechanical require- 
ments do more than establish the minimum below which good 
work is inconceivable. Of graduate students it is expected that 
they should manifest power to work independently, that they should not require the 
stimulus of a professor, but be spurred on by intellectual curiosity and a love of knowledge 
for its own sake; that the passive and receptive attitude tolerated in an undergraduate 
be supplanted by a spirit of personal, original attack and of independent criticism; that 
they should not need to be taught thoroughness, accuracy and a knowledge of the com- 
mon-tools of research, but be already in possession of them ; finally, that they should desire 
to learn more about the subject of their choice than can be acquired by mastering what

has been taught and said by others. 
The degrees conferred by the 
Graduate School, the newest of Loy- 
ola's departments, are those of Doctor 
of Philosophy (Ph. D.), Master of 
Arts (M. A.), Master of Science 
(M. S.) and Master of Laws (LL.M.). 

The intention of the University 
in limiting the departments doing 
graduate work is to concentrate upon 
a few fields until they have been 
brought to a high degree of excellence. 
Other departments will be added as 
circumstances warrant. However, at 
present work may be done for gradu- 
ate credit in other departments and 

if the course pursued is of graduate caliber and related to a student's major interest, it 
may be taken as a cognate minor. 

One of the best features of the past scholastic year was the inauguration of the con- 
vocation of graduate students. It is held once a month, for the purpose of fostering the 
spirit of research, when students have carried their problems far enough forward to have 
data of interest to report, they explain their technic and present their findings before their 
fellow-students at a convocation. The meetings are informal and round-table discussion 
of methods and conclusions is encouraged.

One of the educational developments of recent years is the 
introduction of Schools for Nurses into the family of schools 
which make up the modern University. This movement is the 
indirect result of the development of the University Schools of 
Medicine, which have connected with them, as a necessary 
adjunct, hospitals for teaching. Thus many Schools for Nurses 
have been put upon a collegiate basis so that the pupil's in these 
schools receive academic credit counting toward the B. S. De- 
gree in Nursing. 

Loyola University, with the purpose of encouraging higher 
standards in nursing and with the idea of enabling Catholic 
young women to secure the educational advantages within our 
own system of schools which can be obtained elsewhere, has 
granted to two of its affiliated Schools for Nurses the privilege 
of academic credit. These two schools are the School for Nurses 
of Mercy Hospital and the School for Nurses of St. Bernard's 

Only high school graduates are admitted into these schools. 
All entrance credits are subject to inspection and approval of the 
University; the faculty is selected, and in great part, supplied by the University; the 
curriculum and system of teaching are determined by the Committee on Nursing Educa- 
tion of the University. 

Upon the completion of the three years' course in the School for Nurses, the graduate 
earns academic credit of sixty semester hours. She becomes eligible to admission to the 
Junior year in the College of Arts and Sciences, and, upon the completion of her Junior 
and Senior years, is entitled to the Degree of B. S. in Nursing. 

The results attained by this policy are not hard to visualize. The nursing schools

benefit by the prestige attached to 
graduation from a university and 
from the high standards of teaching 
laid down, while the university gains 
much from the increased cooperation 
possible between the hospital and 
the medical department. Increased 
efficiency and much better service to 
the community are in consequence, 
immediately derived from this pro- 
cedure. It is especially gratifying to 
the university to see the large number 
of nurses who are pursuing studies 
leading to the bacculaureate degree, 
instead of dropping their scholastic 
work immediately upon receiving the 

degree of Registered Nurse. This growth of health}' scholarship among the nurses is 
a real portent of the flourishing condition of the Schools of Nursing. 

While the Nursing Schools as an integral part of Loyola are young in years, they are 
not insignificant, as may be seen from the number of their graduates, nor by any means 
inconsequential, as is evidenced by the splendid work of their graduates and the 
high standardsof study maintained within them. Both Mercy and St. Bernard's schools 
are of the highest type existing and Loyola has every reason to feel proud of the work 
that is being done in turning out properly equipped nurses, and every reason to look for- 
ward to the brightest possible future for these splendid institutions.

There does not seem to be one royal road to learning but 
several highways that lead to this goal. One path that many 
earnest students take is the path charted out by Loyola Universi- 
ty through its Home-Study Department, and over one thousand 
such students have sought its direction along this road. Through 
organized written courses comparable to its residence courses 
and with the aid of Uncle Sam or his colleagues in other countries, 
the University carries its work to the ambitious student any place 
in the world that has postal service. 

The department is equipped to give the student the greater 
part of his high school course, to give him all of the courses re- 
quired in the junior college work, besides offering several other 
courses of a general appeal. The instructors rarely see their 
students although the contact of a weekly lesson, returned with 
the teachers' comments and directions, necessarily promotes a 

relationship much more personal than the inexperienced along these lines is aware. 
Universities long ago agreed not to laureate a student for home study work alone, 

but after guiding the student's beginings toward an academic degree, to beckon him to 

the campus for residence work before she permits him to claim her for his Alma Mater. 

Loyola University has followed this course. 

At present the Home Study department is one of the most rapidly-growing units of

the University. It offers over seven- 
ty-five courses, with more being add- 
ed every year. It has a faculty of 
thirty, all experienced and practical 
teachers, and numbers students from 
every region of the country, as well 
as Canada and the Philippines. 

Full college credit is given for these 
courses, and the course of study is 
carefully outlined for the student. 
Each course is divided into definite 
lessons and is designed to be the 
equivalent of its corresponding resi- 
dence course. The lessons are mailed 

to the instructor and are returned corrected in full. While in some ways this method 
is necessarily not as satisfactory as that of the intimate personal contact of the 
classroom, on the other hand the exactness demanded in written work, the necessity 
on the part of the student to prepare the whole of every lesson, and the personal and 
individual supervision required from the instructor offer advantages rarely possible 
in the classroom method. 

The Home Study Department is young, but it has grown tremendously during its 
period of life. Truly, the future is optimistic.

Year after year participation of students in the government of 
our colleges is increasing. This is especially true in matters which 
concern the students primarily, although we find a tendency for them 
to voice their opinions in matters where faculty and students are 
involved, and even in business strictly administrative. 

This growing tendency is a healthy sign. It shows that students 
in general are awake to the problems that confront them and their 
colleges, and, on the other hand, that the faculties and administrative 
officers are appreciative and tolerant of the most critical scrutiny — 
that of students. It indicates an excellent spirit of cooperation, 
a realization that one of the prime aims of American education today 
is to raise up a group of sober, well-trained citizens. Various courses 
that have such training as their end are good, but theory always 
remains theory until it is practiced. In what better way can students 

learn to govern themselves as a nation in after life than by participating in their own 

college government in their student days? 

One of the most concrete and tangible results of this student consciousness is the 
National Student Federation of America, organized in December, 1925, at Princeton 
University, by college student delegates from all parts of the nation. Unfortunately, 
Loyola was unable to be represented at that meeting, but by a unanimous vote of the 
student body of the Arts and Sciences Department, a delegate was sent to the Second 
Annual Convention held at the University of Michigan in December of 1926, at which 
time Loyola became a full-fledged member of this student organization of 200 colleges 
and universities.

With the exception of the institution of the Student Council itself on the North 
Campus, this step is, no doubt, one of the most momentous in the development of student 
government at the Arts and Sciences Department. The advantages gained by member- 
ship in this powerful body of self-governing students, apart from the obvious benefits 
gained from participation at the conventions, are so great that little mention need be 
made of them. 

In local affairs the Arts and Sciences Student Council enjoyed a successful year. 
The annual Student-Faculty banquet was held at the Morrison Hotel and proved to be 
a fine expression of student and faculty sentiment. Through the courtesy of Rosary 
College, the Student Council of the North Campus cooperated with the Student Govern- 
ment Association of the latter school in the first Loyola-Rosary Intercollegiate Dance. 
The social calendar at the North Side college was well regulated and there was little 
conflict and confusion in that and similar matters. 

What the Student Council cannot emphasize too often or too strongly is that student 
government depends for its success upon the confidence of the student body. This con- 
fidence is an elusive quantity and the acquiring of it is a slow process. Much depends 
upon the attitude of the individual student. He should realize that the officers of the 
Council are his representatives, elected by him to serve his interests and to safeguard his 
rights. The Council is always ready and willing to do its best at all times for the further- 
ance of the students' interests, but it cannot do so if the students do not take it into 
their confidence. 

This confidence is growing on the North Campus. The custom of having the presi- 
dent of the Council preside at assemblies has done much in that line. The practice, 
adopted in March, of inviting students to attend the meetings, is another factor in the 
growth of this confidence and the number of students who took advantage of this invita- 
tion was a revelation. The Student Council is confident that its successors have a rosy 
future. The faculty are with it, the students are showing their confidence, and all looks

The advent of registration day last September found almost the 
entire Junior Class of last year back to register and to claim the title 
and distinction of Seniors. The last lap in the race for the coveted 
sheepskin, and its accompanying degree, was looked forward to with 
hope and confidence by all the members of the class of '27. Whether 
these hopes and aspirations are to be realized, only the immediate 
future will reveal. In the meantime we will continue to look on the 
bright side of life. 

Though we said that most of the "old fellows" returned, there 
were a few whose smiling faces we missed on the opening of the new 
school year. Among the absent were Larry Flynn, Bill Smelzer, Lee 
Jacobs, and John Cullinan. All are now engaged in other fields of 
endeavor, the last named being numbered among the novices of the 
Society of Jesus at the Florissant Noviate. To our erstwhile brethren 
we extend our best wishes for happiness and success in their new undertakings. 

The first activity of the year which called for a demonstration of school spirit on the 
part of the Seniors was the annual "Hello Week," sponsored by the Blue Key Fraternity. 
The class, to a man, pledged itself to do all in its power to make the welcoming week a 
success — to wear the welcoming-badges, and to make it a point to become acquainted 
with most of the new Freshmen. To the credit of all, it can be said that the pledge was 
admirably fulfilled, and the newcomers, moved by the spirit of the upper classmen, 
acquired the proper spirit of the occasion and entered wholeheartedly into it. This was a 
prime factor in this the most successful of all "Hello Weeks." 

The class of '27 inaugurated the custom of appearing in cap and gown on special 
occasions. At the mass of the Holy Ghost, which opened the school year, the class made 


its first appearance in cap and gown. The favorable comments of the student body 
assured the continuance of the custom. The robes were donned on several other occa- 
sions, notably the mass in memory of Michael Cudahy, Loyola's greatest benefactor. 

During the football season the class was ever present to cheer our "Ramblers" on to 
victory. At all the home games the class was well represented, and even at those games 
furthermost from home some of the "dyed-in-the-wool" senior fans were in the stands 
yelling for the boys. 

Last November was inaugurated the custom of assessing each member fifteen cents 
weekly to accumulate a fund to be used for purposes later designated by the class. Under 
George McKeogh, treasurer, the fund grew until, toward the end of January, an amount 
was reached which justified some use. In consequence, a smoker was held in the social 
rooms of the gymnasium. As guest, the class had members of the faculty and the gradu- 
ating men of the football squad. Refreshments and "smokes" were served and songs 
sung. All enjoyed a thoroughly good time and voted the affair a success and worthy 
of repetition. At present writing plans are in progress for a similar affair in the latter 
part of May. 

Negotiations are under way to create some permanent organization of the class of 
'27. The most popular suggestion thus far urges a get-together shortly after graduation, 
at which final plans for the organization will be drawn up. 

Looking back over the quickly flying year we see many gains over previous years. 
Mistakes have been made — but they are merely milestones on the path of progress. 
They will be used for future profit. Viewed as a whole, we believe we do not err in saying 
that the present school year has been, from all standards, the most successful year the 
University has ever had. To be Seniors of such a banner year we consider a great dis-

When the Arts Juniors assembled last fall, they found their 
ranks depleted by a number of their classmates forsaking the lure of 
arts and literature for some sordid professional education, but there 
were about thirty-five white hopes returning to the sacrosanct portals 
of Cudahy Hall, willing and able to make as much noise as the two 
hundred freshmen, and anxious to show the world that there was 
very little difficulty in the study of Philosophy. Whether that last 
ambition was realized, time and the final examinations will tell, but 
otherwise the Juniors count the year a successful one and are perfectly 
willing to inform the world about it on request — or even without that 

Election of officers is traditionally the first task of any class, 
but the Juniors were not particularly worried about this task. As 
freshmen they fought three through attempted elections before a dead- 
lock could be broken and order established in the class, and hence all elections seem lifeless 
by contrast. Accordingly, with little disorder at the polls, they borrowed a class period 
from Father Calhoun and elected Jim O'Brien president, Frank Canary vice-president, 
Jim O'Connor secretary and Bill Smith — or Red, if you prefer — treasurer. 

This formality over, the Juniors settled down to their various avocations and occa- 
sionally studied. Some of their number worked on the News; others on this publication; 
some of them wrote for the Quarterly; a couple of the boys had a lot to do with the success 
of Homecoming; another one ran the Student-Faculty banquet; another was elected 
president of the Sock and Buskin Club, and several of his classmates were either in the 




Page 86 


plays or on the business staff; three of the boys made the debating team; one man broke 
into the finals of the Oratorical Contest; almost everybody worked for the Tournament 
in one way or another; two men were important cogs in Loyola's great basketball team; 
and several other Juniors were connected with the management of various dances through- 
out the year. In other words, the Class of 1928, always known as an active class, had no 
reason to suppose that its members had in any way ceased their activity. 

The crowning work of any Junior class is of course the Junior Prom, and for the suc- 
cess of this the Arts men lent their greatest and most unflinching efforts. While the chair- 
man was not of this department, there was no easing of enthusiasm on this count. On the 
other hand the number of Arts men attending was unquestionably the largest of any 
single department, and the entire Prom Committee was verbose in its acknowledgment 
of the part played by this class in making it a financial success. The social success of the 
Prom was just as great, and there is no doubt that every Junior who climbed into a wait- 
er's uniform — his own, or otherwise — for the great evening had no regrets for his departed, 
but well-spent, frogskins after that dance. 

In other lines of endeavor the Juniors kept their traditional happy spirit and refused 
to allow the problems of student existence to interfere with their enjoyment of life in 
general. They did view with disapproval the poor success which the Sophomores enjoyed 
in subduing the multitudinous and rebellious Freshmen, and with a superior air mur- 
mured " 'Twas not thus last year." 

And, thus, as the English courses would put it, with elections- and strife, with dances 
and harmony, with activities and work, with studies and learning — a little — another year 
passed. Seniors at last, ready and anxious to bask in their new-found glory, the class of 
1928 faces the last lap of the race for knowledge.

When a noted writer of college literature once spoke of the 
"Super-Sophomore Class," he evidently had in mind the boys who will 
receive their sheepskin from Loyola University in 1929. Not desiring 
to appear conceited, but rather claiming only as their own what is 
actually theirs, the members of the class feel exceptionally proud 
of the year they have just completed. 

There is not another class in the University that has furnished 
as many men to every activity as has the 1929 aggregation, and 
the members who have engaged in the various pursuits of the school 
management have invariably merited honor and prestige with their 
invaluable services. To consider the activities in which men from 
the sophomore ranks have been concerned will be to consider every 
field where tact, intellectuality, and vigor are required. 

To one man especially they owe their enviable record as the 
most active sophomore class ever known in Loyola. In addition to rounding out a very 
successful year of control, their president was one of the sturdiest pillars of the varsity 
football squad. They are especially proud to claim as their own, Griffin, the elusive 
streak of the Loyola back-field and punter de-luxe. He was likewise forward, aggressive, 
and influential in his dealings with the Arts and Science Student Council, in which body 
he defended the rights of his fellow classmates. With such a valuable man at their head, 
the Sophs could not but sail through a bright and glorious term. 

One of the most striking achievements of the class was the marvelous supper dance 
which they arranged and managed in such a flawless manner. Never before was a social 
affair of this nature so well attended and so highly appreciated as it was this year, when

in the hands of the capable sophomores. The success of this dance was due, in a large 
measure, to the co-operation and support which they received from all the other classes. 
The readiness with which the entire school responded to their endeavor, was indicative of 
the faith the men had in the class of '29, and the admiration which it excited. They were not 
disappointed in their expectations for the frolic was a grand success, and provided an 
unforgettable evening for all those who were fortunate enough to attend. 

Another tradition which they so ably preserved was the efficient control of erring 
freshmen through the medium of the Green Circle. When the Frosh became over- 
confident of their strength, and began to feel the power of their numbers, taking advantage 
of this apparent invincibility to cast off the required green caps, and declare themselves 
free from all campus bonds, the loyal men of the sophomore class resorted to this estab- 
lished organization to secretly, but effectively, acquaint them with the vigorous strictness 
of Loyola's rules and regulations. Many a freshmen entered the mysterious chambers of 
the body as a headstrong addict of egotism, and emerged less of a freshie and more of a 
true Loyolan. 

The Debating society owes considerable of its success during the past season to the 
numbers that the class of 1929 furnished. Three of the men on the affirmative team were 
sophomores, and contributed a great deal to make the squad a most formidable trio. In 
practically every one of the semi-public debates, upon which the society bases most of 
its popularity, there were at least two of their members on the program. It was a sopho- 
more who acted as secretary of the organization, and arranged one of the busiest and most 
fruitful seasons the society has ever witnessed, scheduling debates with the best teams in 
the country and securing opportunities for the Loyola squads to earn distinction. More- 
over, when the visiting squads arrived in the city, it was another sophomore who received 
them, and acted as manager of the teams.

They can likewise claim their share of dramatic glory, due to their associations with 
the Sock and Buskin Club. Ten members of the club were recruited from their ranks, 
and some of them were most essential in its machinery. The business manager of the 
last production, which scored such a tremendous success both dramatically and financial- 
ly, was from their numbers. Other members of the class helped to make up the valuable 
business staff, acting in the capacities of assistant property manager and chairman of the 
patron committee. When the play was presented the class was behind it to a man, 
and contributed an actor who was one of the main cogs in the wheels of its success. 

The publications were by no means devoid of valuable material from the class of '29. 
The Loyola News was especially benefited by their assistance with eight of their men on 
its staff, working night and day to get out the paper. One of them served in the capacity 
of assistant news editor, and three were included in the rapid firing reporting battery. 
The others concerned themselves with the business of the paper, one of them serving as 
assistant business manager, another as assistant advertising manager, a third at the 
head of the circulation department, and the eight man handling all exchanges. These 
men will undoubtedly be in line for higher staff positions next year because of the tre- 
mendous aid they afforded during their sophomore term. The Loyolan has six of their 
members on its select staff as Feature, Dramatic, Fraternity, Literary, Society, and Asso- 
ciate Sport Editors respectively. They likewise have a man on the managing staff of the 
Loyola Quarterly, and they have contributed innumerable articles which brought fame 
and distinction to this publication. Several of their men, due to their self-sacrificing 
activity on the various literary endeavors, have received admission to Beta Pi, the honor- 
ary publications' fraternity. 

They have not been lacking in sports, but rather they have been as equally prom- 
inent in this field as at all the others. A sophomore added another intramural activity

to the school life when the bowling league was organized, and attracted widespread 
interest in the North Side department. Three of the men on the team that placed second, 
and gave the championship quintet such a hard battle were '29 men. They likewise 
contributed two teams to the league who showed well in the standing, and put up a strong 
argument for the cup. In tennis they provided several men, who were skillful enough 
with the racquet to merit a ranking on the squad. Although some of them did not see 
action during the inter-collegiate encounters this year they furnished strong reserve 
material, and will undoubtedly place on the varsity team next year. The football and 
basketball squads had some of their strongest pillars from the ranks of their class member- 
ship, one of the sophomores especially distinguishing himself and his team during the 
cage season last winter. Among the names of the track candidates you will also find the 
names of several fleet-footed sophomores who have helped to aggregate honors for 
Loyola. There is no sport known to the University which they have failed to support, 
or to which they have not contributed valuable men. 

Next year they will be forced to relinquish their titles as sophomores, but they will 
not forget the prestige and honor which they enjoyed under that name. They have truly 
left behind them a brilliant history with a marvelous dinner dance to their credit, and a 
majority of men in every activity. With all these things to warrant their pride, the 
members of that class can be rightfully boastful. If people claim that they are conceited 
because they claim all these honors, the insult becomes a compliment. These are the 
things they have done and if they are grounds for conceit, they surely must be worthy of 
praise and envy. They still will believe that there will never be another class which will 
so clearly merit the title of the "Super-Sophomore Class" as they have.

The class entered Loyola last fall as the largest class in the 
college's history. This honor the Freshmen still hold even though the 
examinations have done the expected and started many of the most 
prominent greenhorns pushing the wheels of finance or startling 
the professors of other institutions. Those remaining will stop pray- 
ing for one minute and let it out on how it feels for human beings 
to start college and what to do when they get there. This, of course, 
eliminates the opinions of those unfortunate enough to come from 
Oak Park. 

Freshman Day opened the school year. All the newcomers were 
brutally herded in the gym and there given a lesson in etiquette for 
college men. Following this came an intelligence test, which was 
flunked with great ease and then school was pronounced over for 
the day. 
The life of a freshman is hard and trying to make it harder was the purpose of the 
Green Circle. This organization of sophomores insisted that every freshman should 
wear a silly bit of verdure on his head while around school, and threatened dire torture 
to anyone caught without such adornment. This organization was rapidly disbanded 
when it was heard that a group of the sufferers had started the formation of a lynching 
bee with the express purpose of finding out how much rubber there is in a certain sopho- 
more's neck. 

Soon the class came to life and began to act as a body should. Officers were elected. 
Needless to say, the choice was good. The capable men chosen at once started to get 
things moving — as yet no one has seen any of them awake in class — their executive 
duties take up all their time. The class under their guidance has taken huge steps toward 

making Loyola a bigger and better place to rest in.

It is only four short years ago, yet it seems a far cry back to that 
day when the Class of '27, over one hundred strong, labored over the 
questionnaire of some executive genius, confessing their college 
affiliations with glee clubs, periodicals, teams, and other college diver- 
sions, and so became freshmen. Swashbuckling chaps, freshmen, 
with a swank that only the supreme dignity of a senior could daunt, 
with allusions of romance concerning certain cadaveric gentlemen 
that the cadaver-can soon dispelled. Under the guidance of the 
debonair Murphy Cudahy, the class learned to eat candy bars in the 
presence of their aloof friends of the fourth floor; gleaned the mysteries 
of the microscope and tissue sections, almost learned embryology, 
staggered weakly thru neurology, and collapsed feebly on the thresh- 
hold of a sophomore year. Somewhere in that barren waste, a dance 
looms as the only gesture to escape the tedium of long lab periods and 
endless notes. 

Came another October, and, somewhat depleted, but recruited to full strength by 
replacements, the class moved into the quieter sector of the Sophomore year. Under the 
leadership of Eugene McKenna, they swept on to new conquests. Cheerfully did they 
fil! the lowly freshmen with tales of quizzes, anatomy-room horrors, and choice informa- 
tion on the professors. Laboratories came to be regarded with a patronizing insolence, 
five-hundred was played to excess, illusions grew of impending surgical greatness from 
mammalian technique, another layer of bacilli was added to those that already crusted 
the tables in Bacty lab, and another dance was sponsored. But with the coming of the 
final quarter, the purchase of stethoscopes and the chest-thumping in library and lecture- 
room, the glories of the impending Junior year absorbed all our interests and so came 
the clinical stretch. 

- Under the amiable guidance of the imperturbable Gerald Wood the class came to 
Mercy amphitheater and its first taste of clinics. There were symptoms, etiology, and 
all manner of queer circumstance that must be learned. Students graced the dispensary 



Page 96 


and waxed professional, they sought the wary G-C under the lab scope, packed nasal 
cavities, diagnosed everything as lues, and were in constant hue and cry for Wassermanns. 
Not content with all this feverish activity, they were lured into a dance where all of them 
enjoyed themselves immensely, and they went home with their coats only because a 
heroic committee paid the last mite on the hall to a grasping manager three minutes be- 
fore the last notes had died. 

Yet they might have faltered at the threshold of the Senior Year, had it not been 
tradition that that year is one of ridiculous ease in which one basked in the radiance of 
underclassmen's admiration, enjoyed the patronage of a smiling faculty, and gazed 
cheerfully at a suffering humanity clamoring for one's learned ministration down that dim 
vista of another ten months. They felt important enough and believed quite compla- 
cently that they would adorn their profession and that it anxiously awaited their coming, 
so they set out traditionally, as had innumerable Senior classes before them, to wear the 
honors and dignity of the year with becoming exaltation and nonchalance. But sadly 
the class was destined to continue in the sad course of making history. Men conned 
them right and left; speeches of much length and more indignation flogged them con- 
tinually for failure to appear at "Contagious"; for not knowing the ingredients of "S. 
S. S."; for manifold other crimes. Every examination became a nightmare. 'Twas a 
harrowing year, and they have come thru the shambles of "cons" and "flunks" somewhat 
dazed but altogether happy that the end of it all is upon them. 

The Class of '27 will soon be history, another incident in the progress of their school. 
They feel they have not been found altogether wanting. They stand today with fifteen 
County internes, equal, in total of this coveted appointment, to the two senior classes 
that have preceded them. In fact, their men, in general excellence of interne appoint- 
ment, stand superior to any class that had yet graduated from Loyola. There are among 
them fine minds and courageous ambition, men who couple keen intelligence with the 
kindliest sympathy, men in whom is vested the capability of superb finesse in technique. 
Many of them, perhaps, shall bring no extraordinary talent to their profession, of which 
fact they are all too acutely conscious; yet they are proud in the knowledge that they 
possess a strong faith in their fellows and a firm belief that they have a little to add to 
their profession and to their school.

To relate the activities of the Junior class is to relate the names 
of each and every member of that class who ever has shown an earnest 
desire to support all school activities. With 89 students, representing 
18 states, 2 Canadian provinces and 3 foreign countries, it would seem 

k, that a spirit of indifference might prevail, but that is not the case as 
*^JEm\ nas Deen evidenced lime and again in the whole hearted support 
given in all things Loyolan. 
jjS Scarcely had the school year opened when a Welcome party took 

IS j place for the new students in the enlarged library of the Medical 
School. Here the Juniors were very much in evidence, serving, wel- 
coming and entertaining the new students, among whom were six 
new Juniors; Miss Elizabeth Kane, Frank La Presto, Miss Helen 
McGovern, Walter Reuter, George Row and Lawrence Savarice. 
The Junior class has become proud of the additional members. 
The class election, held early in the year, resulted in the selection of the following 
officers: William Fitzgerald, president; Harry Levy, vice-president; Miss Olga Latka, 
secretary, and William Egan, treasurer. Bartholomew McGonigle was elected student 
representative; Robert Lee, editor; Hugh O'Hare, annual representative, and Joseph 
Garnet, sergeant-at-arms. 

The first quarter was not yet well under way when the section at Saint Bernard's 
sponsored a dance for the nurses, establishing a precedent. After the dance, the Juniors 
were invited to the Nurses' Home, where a light luncheon was served. Altogether the 
evening was an enjoyable one, and so capably managed as to create favorable comment 
from both the Sisters and the doctors. In the promotion of this event the way has been 
shown for the future Junior classes. To Ray Kerwin and Earl Schaub much credit is 
due for their efforts to see that the dance would be a success. 

" The Junior Prom is but a pleasant memory now, but one cannot think of this all- 
important social event without mentioning Robert E. Lee, who led the left wing of the

march. Incidentally, Bob was none other than the general chairman of the entire affair, 
selected by the Interdepartmental Committee, and he managed the Prom so superbly 
that the "Jay Hop" of 1927 was universally considered the most successful ever staged. 
And this success certainly could not have been attained had not a large number of the 
Junior Medical Class lent their cooperation to that of the other departments in this 

The Student-Faculty Banquet is a fond and enduring tradition at the Medical 
School. It is always a success, that is accepted without question, and each year it assumes 
larger and more important proportions. 1927 was no exception. It is customary for the 
students to furnish the entertainment and that is exactly what the Juniors did. They 
presented the "Medical Follies," a comic bit generally admitted to be as clever a humorous 
sketch as ever appeared on the amateur stage. Fred Stucker — the George M. Cohan 
of the Medical School — wrote, produced and acted in the piece. The talents of Ray 
Kerwin, Phil Noble, Ada Krause, Jim Kearney and a host of others put the play over in 
great fashion and once more the Juniors brought home the laurels. 

Not content with home activities, several of our budding doctors became important 
cogs in the new all-University Sock and Buskin Club. Ray Kerwin, in both of the plays 
produced during the year, won the plaudits of everyone in the audience because of his 
great acting, and he was ably supported by Fred Stucker and Joseph Garnet. 

The year 1927 witnessed the birth of the Medical Historical Society, an organization 
whose purpose is to study the history of disease, which oftentimes is a strange and inter- 
esting story. Under the direction of Dr. Job, the success of this society is assured. But, 
coming back to the Juniors again, we find Les Urgan one of the chief promotors of this 

And so, in all activities, whether they be the game, the dance or the play, the Junior 
class is always represented, a class of students and a class of boosters.

After one hectic year as freshmen, those of the class of 1929 who were for- 
tunate enough, or foolish enough, to survive the examinations and other inquisi- 
tive devices invented by the faculty for the discouragement of aspiring doctors 
found themselves back on Lincoln Street for another tussle with the studies and 
another year to be spent in pursuit of knowledge and pleasure. While the life 

of a sophomore medic seems to many to consist on making oneself obnoxious to 
the freshmen, still the sophs managed to get along with their younger and less 
fortunate brethren surprisingly well and the year, strange to say, passed without 
any fatalities accruing from an exuberance of sophomoric spirits. 

One sad event marked the year's progress. Francis Kramps, one of the 
scholastic leaders and a deservedly popular student, passed away early in May. 
His loss was keenly felt by the entire class, for he was well known to everyone, 
even though his illness had kept him away from the class during most of the year. 
The class paid their respects as a unit, and united with the entire Medical School 
and witxi Francis's old classmates on the North Side in their expressions of grief. 

On the Drighter side 01 the calendar, there are many cheery events to relate. The class 
held its annual Frolic on January 15th, in the Italian room of the Allerton Club. This 
place, large and beautiful with its splendid decoration and soft tapestries thrilled the enormous crowd 
with ail the scintillating brilliance they had expected. The affair was a brilliant one in every respect 
and much credit is due the committee for their excellent efforts on this evening's entertainment. Bob 
Hawkins was appointed chairman of the occasion and he surely justified his choice by the splendid 
affair which he produced. He was ably assisted by Wallace Karr, who had secured the Allerton Club 
as the scene of the dance, also Dy Jack Keeley, through whose efforts the Allerton Club Orchestra 
agreed to take what later proved to be a perfect and enjoyable command of the ballroom floor, and 
very much also by Byford Heskett, who arranged the evening's fine and varied entertainment. 

Not a moment was either wasted or idle. When tne guests were not under the influence of the 
hypnotic power of the popular Allerton Club Syncopators, they were enthralled by well-known singers 
and dancers secured by the committee to make this the unequalled perfect evening. The way the 


Sec rctarv-at- Arms 

Page 100 


future doctors from all classes of the Medical School took to cutting capers and performing dance 
operations might be a revelation to their future patients, but it only served to prove the efficient 
capaDilities of the arranging committee. 

There was no question about the success of the dance, and no one doubts that it stamped the 
sophomore Medics as one of the leading classes of the entire University. January 15th will certainly 
remain in many a mind as a real red-letter day, a day not to be forgotten hastily. 

In other activities the sophs enjoyed a successful year. Some of the boys evinced a great 
liking for the royal and ancient game of bridge and at the beginning of the fall term some hectic con- 
tests were staged, with results too awful to be recorded here for the benefit — or rather the scandalizing 
— of posterity. 

The class was well represented by its athletic idols. Lars Lundgoot kept up his great work in 
football and tennis and also represented the University on the ice again. Frank Walsh and Burionek 
were also among the boys who made athletic history under the great Roger Kiley. 

The close of the year finds the class still maintaining most of its number intact, with one unhappy 
loss, and ready and anxious to begin its clinical years, the years which lead to the home-stretch in the 
race for the attainment of-one's goal — the profession of medicine. The class has had a happy and pros- 
perous two years, the students have grown to like each other immensely, and everyone is looking to 
the future with confidence and expectation. To their professors who have smoothed over so many a 
rough road and have always been ready and anxious to guide them in their difficulties, the class ex- 
tends its heartiest thanks for all that has come their way.

The freshman medical class of 1926 came together in the first 
part of October. The Convocation of the freshmen was much the 
same as — that of any class. In the class at one time there were some 
130 students, drawn from almost every section of the civilized world; 
men from almost every state in the Union, and from over 16 foreign 
countries registered in the freshman class. Daily contact and com- 
j A'tH^. ^B| munication with persons having a knowledge "I Alaska, Europe, 
■^■l %Jek . Japan, South America, California and New York and in in mediate 
! . ■&. , 'W !■ points was in itself an education. If not, it might be used as an argu- 
ment in favor of Newman's idea of a University. It also indicates 
that Loyola is taking her place among the prominent medical schools 
of the country, with an enrollment of other than American students. 
The majority of the class, enthusiastic in their new environment, 
shortly fell into the routine of medical students. A few of the New 
Yorkers have not as yet found their branch, but it will be pointed out to them eventually. 
They like the school well enough, but oh, the village that has grown up around it. 

A preliminary class meeting, sponsored by the sophomores, and held at the beginning 
of- the year, helped materially in establishing friendly relations. The splendid coopera- 
tion which came to exist between the two classes was remarkable. The winter quarter 
followed very closely but was more pleasant than the preceding one. 

During the winter months, several members of the class indulged in basketball as 
a means of diversion. In the inter-departmental games, Mr. Carey and Mr. Dillman 
distinguished themselves. Some of the freshman medical students are practicing football 
on the North Side Campus. 

The class's first plunge into social activities materialized when plans were made for 
a Medical Class Dance. With Jack Wall as chairman, the Samovar was chosen for the 
dance, and the complete success of the affair sustained Medical Class dances as highly 
enjoyable affairs.

Austin Farrell 

To give an account of the Student Council during the past year, 
a year unexcelled in activity on the part of every unit and organization 
of the Law School, would call for a categorical alignment of the events 
sponsored by this astute body of hypothetical question-solvers. In 
passing it might be deemed expedient to allude to all the various 
episodes of their school life, but that would perhaps degenerate this 
i report into a more or less stereotyped report of cut-and-dried events, 
^■ffi^-*^*. i Studenl government a1 the I ,aw School is a new problem, but it 

^K JHJ I is a problem no less pressing than at other departments. The faculty, 
always exceptionally liberal in this regard, showed a real spirit of 
cooperation upon the opening of the new building on Franklin Street, 
and placed many matters of control in the hands of the students 
themselves. This naturally placed great responsibility upon the 
Student Council, a responsibility which was not lessened by the fact 
that there are two independent student governing units for the Law School, and three in 
the entire Loop School, because the Day Law Department holds its sessions at a time 
when the building is otherwise not in use. Hence, the problem of overlapping authority 
was not a pressing one last year. 

There were, however, other problems. The Day School itself, compact, not over- 
large, and divided into only three divisions, each having the same hours of class, was 
readily accessible, and did not present a multiplicity of problems. Crises in the matter 
of student government, excluding the annual elections, are consequently rare at a school 
of this type, and so there can be little doubt that the Student Council enjoyed sm'both 
sailing, having the unquestioned confidence of the student body, and a splendid degree 
of cooperation from the faculty. The biggest problem was that of cooperation with other 
units of the university. 

-While the Day and Night Law schools are supposed to be closely united, in fact, 
almost inseparably connected, there is in reality very little connection between them.

They have much the same faculty, use the same classrooms, and take the same courses, 
but the vast divergence in their class schedules make contact between them very meager 
and often lacking altogether. Hence in the past, activities of the Law School as a unit 
were usually hoped for and never realized. At one time they had the same Student Coun- 
cil, but the lack of contact rendered it difficult even to hold representative meetings, 
much less to achieve any definite results, so this year the plan of having separate govern- 
ing bodies for each section was tried and found much more successful. 

However, cooperation between the two divisions of the Law School is essential for 
the proper success of both and achieving that cooperation was one of the prime tasks of 
the Day Student Council of 1926-27. In this work, the Student Council of the Night 
Department proved to be a splendid co-worker, and the result was the splendid success 
of the Student-Faculty banquet. In this work, both sides exhibited a spirit of coopera- 
tion which showed that the amount of common feeling between the two units of the Law 
School is considerable and that all that is needed to bring it out is proper direction on 
the part of a responsible governing body. 

The success of the banquet showed that still greater things in cooperation are 
possible. It is now a universal hope that the entire student body of the Downtown School 
may be brought together under seme form of activity or government. This does not seem 
very visionary when one considers the splendid strides taken by each department in in- 
ternal organization. And then there is the question of all-University effort. In such 
enterprises as Homecoming, and the all-university dances, the Day Law department 
has been very prominent. The fact that a member of this department was selected to 
lead the Junior Prom is significant in itself in this matter. 

Much credit and thanks are due Mr. Rooney, the secretary of the Law School, whose 
vibrant personality and ever-ready aid has meant much to the foundation of student 
government here, and to Dean McCormick, who has both scholastically and personally 
been ever our friend and adviser. 

The future of the Law School is optimistic, student government has had a real 
start and now it must not slacken.

Some people would claim that the seniors are now approaching 
the dusk or night of a busy day; some would say that they have 
reached the end of a by-way, and that they must now travel the main 
thoroughfare; still others might state that they have negotiated the 
foothills, and must now ascend the mountains. It does not appear 
this way to the members of the class who are overjoyed with the honor 
and prestige which they hold as seniors. To them it is the glorious 
realization of a fond dream. When they started their studies at 
Loyola, the goal which they have now gained seemed almost un- 
attainable, so there is no wonder that they should now experience a 
great joy when their greatest ambitions are realized. They have 
struggled through their scholastic fogs, encountered victoriously their 
legal difficulties, and now they are basking in the sunshine of the victors' glory. 

Yet, just as all worldly joys and great emotions are tinged with sorrow, or something 
akin to grief, so likewise do they now feel a touch of that illusive something. That is 
the cause of many a lump in the graduate's throat. They feel that the class friendships 
that have been so dear to them must cease when they receive their diplomas; it seems that 
the excitement and thrills of the years of associations with professors and fellow stud-ents 
must end with the last day of their senior year. They recall, with a touch of regret for 
its loss, the cramming, the jamming, the feverish activity of their school life. Yet they 
have had their share, and better the memory that brings a tear along with a happy thought 
than'one which will not be a memory after a few short months.

The class has been as one large family. Some of them have been together for five 
years, and have struggled side by side during this time with their studies. All of them 
have been together for three years at least, and there has never been a split in the ranks. 
From the freshman year, when they first entered the school and were introduced to the 
three faculty men whom they can never or will never forget, Mr. McCormick, Mr. 
Rooney, and Mr. Steele, up until the present time they have stood together. 

They have felt the pangs of sorrow several times. Last summer they lost a fellow 
student, Bud Gorman, who gave his life to save a drowning girl. Bud was the best liked, 
the cleanest fellow, and the best athlete in the school. They were proud to claim him as a 
member of their class, and theirs was the deepest sorrow at his death. Then again in the 
fall the grim reaper took another one of their fellows. This time it was Dan Gannon 
who was the stellar student of the Law School. The profession lost a credible member 
in his death, and the class lost a well liked man. 

If variety is the spice of life they claim considerable of this flavoring, for they have 
all kinds of specimens from long ones to short ones, and from hefty to not so hefty. They 
have "Big Bad Arnold" five feet two, and draws his pay from John D., and "Mystery 
Man" Micque Creighton, who has six feet three inches of height. Then the football 
exponents, "Owl" Cronin, Morry Schell, and Dan "Tony" Lamont, who are considered 
among the best with the illusive spheroid. Then they have some of the fairer sex, Miss 
Anna Marie Galvin, and Miss Patricia Hayes, oft times known as "Pat." Moreover the 
boys claim that they are not in the least hard to look at. They have the "Oil Burner 
King," Dick Baskerville who played in the "Hound of the Baskerville." They don't 
say what part he played but at least he contributed the name. And again they have 
Francis Goodwin, the man of a thousand joints who sells plumbing. In the next cage 
they have Pat Cahill, the Irish Orator who parts his hair in the middle, and the eminent 
Student Council Prexey, Austin Farrell, affectionately known as "Brother Byles." Then 
the boy baritone Herman Oreskes, and after him a fellow by the name of Nelson Osnoss. 
They never could get any dope on him except that he wears hair on his lip. They also 
claim a good Samaritan, Vince Polachi, who has come to the aid of plenty of Seniors. 
After him comes the musician Diffendorfer, known as "Diff," and their other orator 
McDermott known as "Mc." And in the last cage, ladies and gentlemen, is Bob Mc- 
Carville, celebrated newspaper magnet and Beaux D'Arts. Last but not least there is 
the notorious "Guv" Stanley Walsh, known from South Bend to Kenosha. 

But now the story must close. The Seniors feel that they lack sufficient power or 
ability to portray their feelings. They believe that they had had the best of profs, the 
best of treatment, the sincerest of friends, and hope that their sons will take Loyola for 
.their Alma Mater, to be as loyal to her as they intend to be.

The Class of 1928, under the leadership of Marvin Adams, started 
its first year of law in the Ashland Block. It took only the first 
football season to bring out a few of the celebrities in its midst — 
Eddie Johnson, Marvin Adams, Claude Walkoviak, Jack Downs and 
Harold Lederer. The first casualty was the loss of William Stuckey, 
who sustained a broken leg in the St. Louis game of that year. Com- 
plications developed which prevented his return to school. Like most 
freshman classes, the students took their work so seriously that 
before the first semester had ended a special meeting of the faculty 
was called to take up ways and means of slowing them down. At 
that meeting Mr. Rooney voiced the alarm which was felt by the entire 
faculty that the class would be ready for the bar exam before the end 
of its first year. To remedy these circumstances plans were imme- 
diately adopted by which the unsuspecting freshmen were thrown 
more often — and for longer periods of time — with the upper classmen. The results 
were great. At the present sitting it is doubted whether the majority of the class of 1928 
will be finishing before the second Great World's Fair in Chicago. 

At the beginning of the second year, the parlimentary session of the season was held 
in old 620. Most of the members had hoped for a quiet candidate, but such was not to be 
their fate. In the midst of the nominating, John Conway Ryan, no longer able to control 
himself, burst forth in his own Michigan way and cried aloud for the opportunity, to be 
the class's captain in the oncoming storm. What could be done? What would any 
good, sensible, law-abiding and brief-making institution have done? Simply have the 
office. He filled it like he has filled many another gap — and don't think he didn't. 

. For a small celebration and a thanksgiving in general, the Fish Fan's Club was 
selected as the scene of the first all-Junior Day Law Banquet. With Professor Sherman

Steele as friend, adviser, helper and guest of honor, the affair went off smoothly and as 
scheduled. It is useless to attempt any explanation or description with the use of mere 
words — it simply cannot be done. It is worthy of remark, however, that any institution 
with a less beautiful understanding than our own junior class could hardly have weathered 
the storm, with the banquet hall listing to the South — backwards, and upside down, 
and backwards. 

The class received a signal honor when the leadership of the great Junior Prom was 
awarded to the Day Law Department, and consequently to this class. Leo Lederer was 
elected to represent the class and lead the Grand March with Miss Sylvia Rubloff. A 
better king and queen could not have been made to order. The class turned out 100% 
to the beautiful Illinois Women's Athletic Club for this gala event — as did almost the 
whole university. A perfect promenade, we all thought, and a tremendous success, 
thanks to the combined efforts of every department, was the result. 

As the end of the second year draws to a close the class has the usual mixture of 
feelings which accompanies every Junior class and probably fills every member's thoughts 
in the springtime — regret at realizing that the seniors are almost through their course. 
The juniors are sorry, they will miss them, probably more than any junior class ever 
missed its immediate predecessors. Then there is the frenzy of the oncoming examina- 
tions, and the sudden awakening that before long they themselves will be seniors in the 
good old Law School. It is almost too much to feel all that at once. 

This is the end of a first rate year. The opening of the new building was perhaps 
the salient point and the most significant event of it all, but the events mentioned above 
and many other smaller happy occurrences have all combined to make this year one of 
unalloyed pleasure and profit. Here is the hope that the class sticks together and helps 
each other as much as it always has done in the past in the year just ahead.

A summary in detail of the events of the day class of '29 is to 
give an account of what fifteen or seventeen spirited youths have con- 
tributed toward university history in the college term now drawing 
to a close. 

They met as a group in September. This was the first shock 
and the last, and it took a toll of a few lives, the present number being 
somewhat diminished. Three or four have left, but the second semes- 
ter brought new members. All in all, the class was discovered to be 
more or less of the freshman type, foolish and unprincipled. Some 
became scholarly from the start, however, but space will not allow 

full particulars in this regard. 

One day toward the opening of the semester, the kindly Dean entered the 
Ashland Block class room and said: "Freshmen, you need an election. You lack 
organization, and that is a vital necessity." So an election was engineered. 
Henceforth, a definite policy was to exist in order that the weighty matters of class 
government might be carried on. The Hon. Timothy Lowry was elected to the 
chair of Vice-President; Joseph Hammer to the office of Treasurer; Raymond Hayes 
to class delegate ; Thomas McCabe to Secretary; and Mr. Sweeney to the Presidency. 
Two law professors were deprived of their daily treat of lecturing, so lengthy was the 
momentous occasion. Things proceeded smoothly. Everyone forgot about the class 
officers. There was really no need for them. 




Page 112 

The new class contributed materially to a fund-raising raffle in behalf of the football 
team. About forty per cent of the class pledged themselves to buy the Loyolan, advancing 
one dollar as evidence of their intentions. Likewise, the boys were generous in their 
response to the drive for the Bud Gorman Memorial. One-half the regular enrollment 
attended the annual banquet, whereby, as Freshmen, they obtained the first formal and 
informal glimpse of the gentlemen who compose the faculty. 

The New Building, situated on Franklin Street, provided disconcerting quarters — 
a startling deduction. The chummy Ashland Block classroom, wherein they had spent 
the opening months, had become quite intimate with their spirits and feelings. From 
this historic site, itself in the heart of the Rialto, the Oriental theatre is but a few steps 
distant. Hence, the removal to the rim of the loop somewhat dislocated them, and they 
are still unadjusted in this respect. But from an educational standpoint, the modern 
building is more conducive to their pursuit of Law. Large classrooms, smoking rooms 
conveniently distributed, and a huge library summarize their present surroundings. 

At this point, the class would appreciate if the University would be informed in a 
personal way of the past performances, idiosyncrasies and amazing mentalities that 
existed among them. They extend sincere words of congratulation to the graduating 
class; and hope that next September will find all of their own membership back to a man, 
ready as they always have been, to tackle the problems of students of jurisprudence.

The Student Council of the Loyola School of Law is now two years 
old. This time is short indeed, yet during it much has been done by the 
council to bring about greater cooperation between the student and 
his teacher. During the first year of its existence the Council was 
composed of students picked from candidates from both the day and 
the night schools. However, after a year had passed the student body 
clearly realized that this form of government was unsatisfactory, due 
to the diversified interests of the students of the two different sections, 
presenting two altogether different sets of problems. Hence it was 
decided to separate the councils and to create a distinct governing 
body for each section. 

The success of this new plan is apparent from a glance at the 
smooth functioning of student government at each department. The 
councils have acted individually and independently on the immediate 
needs of their own groups and in problems peculiar to their own sections, but in matters 
pertinent to the Law School as a whole, they have united their forces with remarkable 
success. Especially worthy of mention is the splendid success of the Student-Faculty 
Banquet, in which both councils divide the honors for its culmination. 

The night school council has kept itself very busy since the establishment of the 
Law School in the new building, formulating rules regulating the conduct of the students 
in their new environment. Although some of these rules have proved irksome at times, 
particularly the rule concerning smoking in the corridors, the students have stood 
behind the student council in these matters and have greatly assisted the enforcement 
of these regulations. This has given student government a great impetus, for it has 
shown that the students have confidence in their representatives, which is so necessary

Junior Rep.

Page 114 

to the success of student governing organizations, and it has greatly encouraged the 
faculty, always sympathetic to student initiative, to place more power in the hands of 
the council, knowing that this power will be wisely handled and that its rulings will 
receive the support of the student body. 

The Student Council is an elected body. The president is selected by the students of 
the entire evening Law School. Each class elects one representative and each class presi- 
dent further serves on the council, the presidents acting as an advisory body. The Loyola 
Law School Student Council serves as a board of arbitration by means of which all dis- 
putes between students and faculty are settled. The student, before he can present his 
differences to the Dean, must appear before the council, and if, after deliberation, the 
council decides he has a just claim, it will present his petition to the faculty and defend 
his rights. While the students of the Law School have not had many differences with the 
faculty, the few that have arisen have been settled in a manner agreeable and satisfactory 
to all. Indeed, although the Law School Council is still in its infancy, it is indeed a healthy 
infant and its present progress betokens a long and useful life. 

Student government at the Law School has a great future. The confidnece of the 
student body and the encouragement of the faculty have gone a long way toward setting 
it on a firm basis and it is with the fondest hopes that the successors of the present mem- 
bers have the same fortunate situation and are able to carry on the great work in a way 
worthy of Loyola and her ideals that we conclude this article. 

The personnel of the student council at present consists of Charles J. Gallagher, 
President, Lawrence J. Miller, Senior Representative, Charles Barrett, Junior Represen- 
tative, Stanley H. Cassidy, Sophomore Representative, Daniel McCarthy, Freshman 
Representative, and the class presidents, respectively, Phillip A. Conley, Senior, Richard 
T. Tobin, Junior, Thomas Crane, Sophomore, and John J. Kelly, Freshman.

Distinctive in its persistence and enthusiasm, the Class of 1927 
is the first law class to graduate from the new Downtown College. 
That persistence is best illustrated by the perfection of scholarship, 
and the reception of degrees by seventy-five per cent of those students 
first registered in nineteen hundred and twenty-three. 

If you will overlook the reminiscent manner of the writer, we will 
go back to 1923 and take you through the four years with us. The 
first few weeks of the fall term of 1923, were, for the majority of the 
class members, days of bewilderment and confusion. The sixth floor of 
the Ashland Block, for the freshmen, presented a world of new expe- 
riences, splashed with strange technical terms, and appalling textbooks, foreign to all 
save a few who had become familiar with them in the law offices or elsewhere. Ap- 
proximately eighty per cent of the members of the class were drawn from occupations 
divergent from that of law interests. The roll call included clerks, political bosses, 
mechanics, policemen, engineers, realtors and a single young lady, whose good sports- 
manship and lively interest over a period of four years demands admiration and respect. 

Composed as it was of practically all races and creeds, the democracy of the class 
is to be commended. The standard of scholarship was high, and it was evident that the 
founders of future eminent law firms were being schooled, during those turbulent second 
and third years.

Our fourth year, largely due to the influence exerted by the Loyola News, was one of 
greater interests in the University. Prior to the existence of the News, the activities of 
the other departments were unknown to us, and our perspective of Loyola was limited 
to the sixth floor of the Ashland Block. Encouraged by the News, two national frater- 
nities established chapters at Loyola. They were Sigma Nu Phi and Delta Theta Phi 
and they have been a deciding factor in promoting the social interests of a great many 
students in the Law School. 

In judging the celebrities and celebrated events of the class, the legal debates be- 
tween the instructors and Mr. Gelderman cannot be forgotten, for they were instructive 
and entertaining. The briefing ability of Mr. Cummins saved many an embarrassing 
moment; the sober reflections of Mr. Mulligan and Mr. Shukies were an inspiration, and 
the pugilistic tendencies of Mr. Prendergast and Mr. Malone lightened the long class 
hours with humorous divertissement. Prominent among the business men of the class are 
Poling the realtor; Diggins the Conveyance man; Murphy brothers, wholesalers; and the 
super-salesmen Dooling, DeGryse, Hartnett, O'Keefe and Greenbald. The awakening 
of Brown, and his articles in the News were greatly appreciated by the rest of the students 
while the political forecasts of Crawford have won several bets for his classmates. The 
oratorical ability of Harty and Maloney will sway many a jury, because of the invaluable 
help given them by Mr. Nash. 

Of the changes which have taken place in the development of the University as a 
whole, the class of '27 fully realizes and appreciates the improvements made in the New 
Downtown College. With its ample floor space its model classrooms, enlarged library 
and comfortable smoking rooms, the quarters occupied by the Law Department in the 
Ashland Block are vast improvements over the University in which we first enrolled. 
We have seen the changes in the methods of instruction, and the entrance of Loyola into 
the American Law School Association. 

The sincere gratification of the class of nineteen hundred and twenty-seven is ex- 
pressed to the faculty for their patience and help to every member of the Law Depart-

Roll call having been completed one stifling evening last Septem- 
ber, there was written into the records the fact that the class of 1928, 
numbering thirty-eight intelligent, aspiring, and ambitious followers 
of the law, had convened for the first session of its Junior year. A 
brief lecture on the intricacies of opinions and conclusions concluded 
the struggle of the first evening. 

A noticeable fact that cannot be omitted is the vitality which seems 
to characterize this class, for it was three years ago that practically 
the same group bashfully slid unobserved into sheltered seats to begin 
Richard Tobin as Freshmen the absorption of principles in Contracts, Agency, Torts, 
President and kindred subjects. Everyone finished that first lap of the course 

with an understanding of such outstanding facts as undisclosed princi- 
pal, Statute of Frauds, elements of a contract, estoppel, and the 
stubblefield case. The following year saw the same members boldly 
push forward to attempt a conquest of Evidence, Common Law Pleading, Real Property, 
and other subjects which can be safely guaranteed to give even the most ambitious plenty 
of trouble. But the more that is learned, the more does the class begin to realize how 
very much there is yet to be learned in this broad professional field. 

School had not been in progress a month when the annual class election took place, 
and a selection of capable class officers were chosen of R. T. Tobin, President; John J. 
Coffey, Vice President; Miss Elizabeth R. King, Secretary; John D. McNulty, Treasurer; 
Charles R. Barrett, Representative to the Student Council; and Charles J. Gallagher, 
Junior candidate for president of the Council. A caucus was then held to secure the 
election of our candidate for president of the Student Council and the results placed our 
political ability on a level with "Tammany." 

- Classes rolled smoothly along until the end of the semester when the school was 
moved to its new location. Here, after much shifting of rooms which left them in a du- 







Page 118 

bious state as to whether or not their next class would be in the boiler-room or the attic, 
the class lodged in a spacious, airy room which offered to the weary none of the sleep- 
inviting pillars of the old Ashland Block Building. But, perchance, should one relax 
long enough in this new room to enter a state of dreams, he has the consolation of not 
having to worry about being awakened with the harsh suggestion of where to find a 
cheaper place for sleeping, for the more gentle awakener shall be the sudden clanging of 
fire bells as the engines make their periodic dash past the school, or the low rumble of 
heavily burdened trucks, or the soft chimes floating from the illuminated tower of the 
Chicago Temple Building. 

With a full consideration of all these material advantages of the new building, 
the class settled down to establishing a thorough understanding of Equity. Having 
gone through the primary functions of getting the hands clean, they entered heartily 
(with clean hands) into the fulfillment of the declaration to furnish equity to themselves 
in the nature of leavening the law with a sprinkle of social activity. 

The first such event was the Junior Prom at which the Junior Night Law Students 
in tuxedo and glittering gown strutted about the ballroom of the Illinois Women's Ath- 
letic Club in such manner that an ordinary observer would regard them as social lumin- 
aries instead of struggling embryo lawyers. A modest admission has to be made in the 
giving of a large share of credit for the success of the brilliant affair to the encouragement 
and support of this class. 

The next occurrence was the Student-Faculty Law Banquet for the success of which 
the Juniors furnished directors and their unfailing assistance. With no other events on 
the schedule it must be said in conclusion that, in following school activities, the class of 
'28 has been most loyal; in furnishing workers for the success of school committees and 
societies, the class of '28 has been most outstanding; in furnishing a Senior class, which 
may be a pride to Loyola, the class of '28 hopes that it shall be most capable; and in fur- 
nishing loyal alumni to whom the school may look with joy, the class of '28 knows that it 
shall be most qualified.

During the current year the Sophomore Evening Law Class has 
initiated the practice of holding periodic dinners, with the object 
of promoting among its members that spirit of friendliness and co- 
operation which is so necessary to the successful existence of a group 
of individuals gathered together for a common purpose. With this 
end in view, two functions of this nature have been held during the 
present year. 

The first class dinner took place at the Hotel La Salle on Hal- 
loween Eve, and its results were beyond the fondest expectations 
Thomas Crane pf those who gave unsparingly of their time and efforts toward making 
President it a success. Practically every member of the class attended, and 

the affair was unanimously hailed as the best time of the season. 
Since this dinner the spirit and attitude of the class has undergone a 
marked change. Its success in instilling the spirit of good-fellowship 
into the class has been remarkable. Each student considers every other member of the 
class as a personal friend with whom he can converse on -the most intimate of terms. 
The attitude of discrimination and aloofness, so often found in schools throughout the 
country has been banished from our midst with comparatively little effort. 

The second affair of this nature was held at the Great Northern Hotel on December 
Eighteenth. While the attendance on this occasion was limited to approximately two 
thirds of the class membership, the same spirit prevailed as that which manifested itself 
at the time of the first gathering. In justice to the members of the class who were not in 
attendance at this latter event, it must be mentioned that their failure to be on hand was 
not due to either lack of co-operation or disinterestedness. Practically all of those who 
were not in attendance were possessed of an excuse which emphatically prohibited their 
being present. They were not kept in ignorance of the proceedings however for full de- 
tails of the activities of the evening were brought to them by those in their class, who 
were more fortunate in being able to attend. On this occasion we were fortunate in hav- 
ing Professor Francis K. Rooney, Registrar of the Law School, as guest of honor. The 




Page 120 

members of the class are deeply indebted to him for the insight into the history of the 
school and its purposes so ably conveyed by his remarks at that time. 

Elaborate plans were made after this second success, for another get-together, and 
their result was the Annual Law Banquet on April 23rd. The members of the class lent 
their entire support to the activity and exerted their untiring efforts in making it the 
elaborate affair that it turned out to be. It was the ambition of the class to have a per- 
fect attendance at the feast, and the ideal was satisfactorily realized. 

The next affair promoted by the Sophomore class, which terminated its social activi- 
ties for the school year 1926-1927, promised to surpass anything of its kind yet attempted 
by the ever active members. Due to the success of the former class dinners, it was de- 
cided to have another, and this time the affair progressed beyond all expectations. 

In addition to the many functions in which the class has participated as a unit, the 
interest of its individuals in other school activities has been striking. This is especially 
laudable since the time of an evening law student is almost entirely absorbed by the de- 
mands of his subject and vocation. In this connection, we of the Sophomore class are 
quite proud to number among our members a winner of the Harrison Oratorical Contest, 
and a member of the cast of the play entitled "The Goose Hangs High," which was one of 
the productions featured by the Sock and Buskin Club. 

To the efforts of our able and efficient Secretary, John R. Lamb, our hard working 
Treasurer, Joseph D. Shelley, and Stanley H. Cassidy, Student Council Representative, 
is due no small amount of the success which we have attained during the current year. 
However, the spirit of the class has been admirable, and, without the individual and col- 
lective efforts put forth by all of its members, the success of our undertakings would not 
have been possible. It is indeed with regret that we look forward to the termination of the 
school year, but with satisfaction that we review our accomplishments. Our object has 
been realized and it remains for us to preserve the results of our social activities by main- 
taining, as a standard of conduct and co-operation befitting students of Loyola University, 
that splendid spirit which we have acquired by constant contact and intercourse.

It is now nearly a year since the class of 1930 performed its first 
hazardous journey onward and upward via the vintage elevators of 
the Ashland Block, and had its inception in the chaste splendor of 621, 
that classic exemplar of the Paleozoic in interior design. In number 
we were some twenty-five, a group almost snobbishly exclusive in 
comparison with our betters of the upper classes. Despite our numer- 
ical insignificance many schools had vied in our training, and among 
us were those who swore by Loyola, Northwestern, Illinois, Notre 
Dame, Chicago Normal, Moler and other institutions of learnings, 
including the Scandinavian. Male and female were represented, and 
in the aura of sweet femininity many of us became suddenly self-con- 
scious and perforce were silent, pondering the evil period of storm and 
stress that lay before us in the conflict with a faculty universally male. 
In our class we feel, as is proper, a most commendable and pardonable pride based 
not so much upon our class activities as upon the wide range of talent and accomplish- 
ment evidenced in that important extra-curricular activity of making a living. In fact, 
it would not be too much too say that the entire field of human activity has been spanned 
by our efforts therein. Indeed, the list of our activities might well serve as an index to a 
treatise on vocations. Insurance, so practical in its training of the jury lawyer; banking, 
so pleasant in years to come with its memories of handling money; pedagogy, so soul- 
satisfying in its power of expert faculty criticism; office work, so fruitful in its ability to 
make a long evening pass as one sweet dream; law work, so superior in its advantaged for 
briefing cases, for learning the Who's Who and What's What of the Chicago courts, for 
enlightening the class on such practical matters as whom to see because of a ticket — 
these and other devices have their devotees, and make possible, if not tolerable, our 
monthly chats with the bursar and our purchasing of the embalmed ashes of the common 



Page 122 

Since it is axiomatic that lawyers are politicians, we were no sooner settled than we 
at once cast about to elect officers who would worthily discharge their high duties. After 
due and solemn deliberation the following received the laurel: John Kelly, President; 
Mary Barron, Secretary; James Deegan, Treasurer; Daniel McCarthy, Student Council 

As soon as we had elected our executives, motions were in order for a class celebra- 
tion and party. Finally, in December, celebrating six weeks in advance, the class gath- 
ered at the Blackhawk, with the result that your scribe might truthfully write, were he 
conversant with the society page, far more than the conventional and ungrammatical 
"A fine time was had by all," which must needs suffice. 

Due to limitations imposed by time, the class has been forced thus far to support 
other activities rather than to originate another of its own, but at that it has made itself 
felt. Not merely in matters proper to the Law School, such as the annual banquet and 
the basketball team has it figured; in the all-University affairs of athletics, the Tourna- 
ment, social activities and the like, the class has taken part either by participation or 

In our year of study or exposure to the common law as of the time of James I except 
as thereafter modified by statute and legislative enactment, we have learned many 
things as might be expected. Not the least of our acquisitions is the fact that in no 
science will the careful student find so many split-infinitives as in this noble science of 
jurisprudence. Other facts are numerous, chief among them being: (1) a well filled 
brief book makes for a feeling of security; (2) there is a difference between the buying 
and selling price of case-books; (3) breach of promise suits are avoided by a judicious 
use of the telephone in preference to letter-paper; (4) a course in Common Law Pleading 
does not make Puterbaugh a luxury; (5) the bar examination is not a fair test of ability. 

In summary, we feel glad of many things, glad that we have finished one year of 
law, glad that we are at Loyola, glad that we have done our part in advancing the school, 
glad that we have the chance to do more during the next three years and later, and glad 
that we are the class we are. JOSEPH B. BYRNES.

The current year has brought about the organization of the 
Commerce Club, the recognized student activities body of the night 
Commerce Division. This self-governing group is the result of a long 
felt need, in discussion of legislation pertaining to student govern- 

Due to the small enrollment prior to 1926, there was no need for 
such student representation as is now enjoyed, but as the school grew, 
it was logical that such an autonomous organization be formed. Offi- 
cers were elected on November 9th, followed by a student-faculty 
banquet at the City Club on December 11th. Speakers who aided 
in making this initial function a success were Fr. Siedenburg, Fr. 
Walsh, Dean Reedy, Ambrose Kelly, Rog Kiley and Professor Egan. 
The ball was rolling, and at this time Dean Reedy gave to the 
students his idea as to the club's benefit to its own membership and to 
the University. That portion of his speech dealing with student representation in official 
proportions was received with applause, and an assurance by the students that they 
would assist in upholding the ordinances. The Commerce Club has sponsored a basket- 
ball team that participated in the intramurals this year. The team was organized in the 
hope that its appearance would bring about closer unity among the other branches of 
the University, and it proved to be an excellent medium of association. 

Official representation of the Club on the Interdepartmental Staff is another ade- 
quate means by which we enjoy the benefits of a large university. This governing body 
is conscious that an active Night Commerce school is representing Loyola in the heart 







Sergeant-at-A rms

of the Loop. Staff reporters assigned to the Loyola News help us to realize a big part of 
university life, even though remote from the campus. These points bear out the idea 
that, instead of a "come and go" schedule for our students, they are part of an organiza- 
tion that would broaden one in lines other than technical ones. 

The constitution is a democratic document. It permits active membership of stu- 
dents who have attended at least one semester of school at Loyola. To hold office, the 
nominee must have completed twenty hours of commerce work. The constitution pro- 
vides for a very reasonable membership fee sufficient to secure interest, and moderate 
to the extent that a student would not be deterred from membership by the levy. A 
subscription to the Loyola Neivs is included in the dues, and is collected semi-annually. 
Meetings are held on the second and last Thursday of each month, after classes, in the 
Downtown Building. 

On April 30th, the big step in our career was the Commerce Club Dance at the Hotel 
Stevens. This affair convinced us that the first year of our organization was a success. 
It was planned to make this an annual event, since it permits the alumni to keep in touch 
with the school and its progress. The Sock and Buskin Club provides an excellent oppor- 
tunity to see home talent in professional work. Our representation at the games showed 
further that the Commerce Division is an active part of the University, and important 
in supporting its activities. 

Mr. Al J. Brown, acting as Vice-President; Mr. J. S. Kavanaugh as Secretary an 
Chairman of Social Activities; Mr. James J. Neary as Treasurer and Mr. Robert McCann 
as Sergeant-at-Arms are most deserving of gratitude, for without their support and 
willingness to work, the Commerce Club would be far from the position it occupies today.

In September, 1924, Loyola University added another depart- 
ment of night classes to its curriculum. Sixty students from various 
Catholic and public high schools throughout Chicago and vicinity 
with confidence of the success of the School of Commerce, matricu- 
lated. The School of Commerce has grown during the three years of 
its existence into one of the most promising and flourishing depart- 
ments of the university and many of the original freshman class have 
advanced to their junior year and are carrying the high ideals of Loyola 
into the commercial and industrial world. The traditions, clubs, and 
societies which were necessarily lacking during the months of building 
have gradually come to hold a part of the school life, and the future 
holds the assurance of an increasing student group and a constantly 
more animated interest in the welfare of this vital department. 
The Commerce Club, the universal organization of the School of 
Commerce, has in its enrollment, the entire Junior Class, — who with their enthusiasm 
and fraternal spirit have helped the underclassmen to experience the real meaning of the 

The rapid growth of the Commerce School from sixty students and three instructors 
in 1924 to two hundred and fifty students and twenty instructors in 1927 is due to the 
tireless efforts of the faculty under Mr. Reedy as Dean and the cooperation of the Junior 
Class of 1927, whose aim is to make Loyola University the greatest school in the west. 
The future is auspicious; it is the belief of the students that the school is rendering 
a real service to the students and the community; and the benefits of the schooling in 
business associations are clearly demonstrated by the positions held now by the students.

The Sophomore class deserves credit for the significant part it 
Mp^*"~^ played in necessitating the removal of the Loyola evening school from 

[ _ iH the Ashland Block to its present location, a college building of its own 
at 28 North Franklin Street, in the neighborhood of the Chicago Kent 
College of Law. Plans have been negotiated to build the new Civic 
Opera House within less than one-halt block so that the new Loyola 
location will have a genuine cultural atmosphere. 

It was twenty-one years ago that Loyola University first offered 
a law course in the Ashland Block. Eight years later Father Sieden- 
berg started the first class in Sociology with less than a dozen students. 
While these departments grew considerably, it was with the establish- 
ment of the School of Commerce, that the consequent increased enroll- 
ment overcrowded the old quarters. Dean Reedy, appreciating the 
large increase in the School of Commerce and anticipating a much 
greater growth in the future, told the students that if the number of students in Commerce 
Classes were doubled within a year we would probably have a building of our own. It 
is a matter of history now that we Sophomores, who then were Freshmen, did the lion's 
share in securing additional students. 

Our new college building is modern in every respect and is easily accessible to students 
who are employed in the loop during the day. The class rooms are large, well-ventilated, 
and light. The social rooms are a source of pleasure to the students, promote friendship 
among the Loyolans, and develop college spirit. 

Not only were the Sophomores leaders in increasing the enrollment, but they also 
were most active in founding the Commerce Club, for ten of the twelve promoters of this 




Page 130 


club and four of the five officers are Sophomores. The Commerce Club is that live 
organization which sponsors the dances, smokers, banquets, and other social functions 
which endear college life. 

The students of Loyola evening school are exceedingly fortunate due to the fact that 
the instructors that teach law, accounting, salesmanship, advertising and kindred sub- 
jects are in the day time successful men in these various occupations. This gives them 
the benefit of the experience these successful business men have had, which could hardly 
be gotten elsewhere. We also have as professors some of the men from the North Side 
Campus. There is no need to go into detail as to their ability; each has made for himself 
a wonderful record in the University World. 

It is quite interesting to note the varied walks of life from which the Sophomore 
Class draws its students. They are young men and women, each of whom is desirous 
either of advancement in the business in which they are now situated or want to equip 
themselves with the requisites that will enable them to step out into a new path. The 
roster shows young men engaged as clerks, bookkeepers, tellers, claim adjusters, bankers, 
electricians, and credit men. It is not uncommon to hear one student explaining his 
particular class of work to another, either before class or between classes. This enables 
the night school students not only to benefit by the instruction received in class but 
also they learn from the experience of their fellow classmates. 

The Sophomore class includes fifty young men and fifteen young women, who are 
not only interested in obtaining scholastic grades in the University at the present time 
and personal advancement later but also are determined to gain prominence in our pro- 
fessions and to reflect creditably upon our Alma Mater in appreciation of the splendid 
opportunities Loyola afforded us. 

The officers of the Sophomore Class, elected in March, are as follows: President, 
William Sweetman; Vice-President, David Byrne; Secretary, Frances Maier; Treasurer, 
W. A. Kerr.

A year has come and gone since we first came to Loyola but, 
fleetly as those three hundred sixty-five days have sped, they have 
left their traces — we are all one year older and some are one year wiser. 
The Freshmen have been a busy group and I think that most of the 
class can look back on the past year with the satisfaction that comes 
of having accomplished something worth while. 

A fine spirit of cooperation has been manifested by the students 
and professors and we appreciate the latters' unceasing interest and 
efforts which have helped us so much in our class work. There may 
be no royal road to learning but they have certainly smoothed the way 
for us. 

The Freshman Class has one great accomplishment to its credit, it has successfully 
disproved the rather accepted axiom that one cannot go to night school and enjoy any- 
thing like college life. The general birth of organizations and social contact in the Com- 
merce School this year has found the Freshmen hearty and enthusiastic participators 
in the movement. The new and successful Commerce Club has found many Fresh- 
men among its members and enthusiastic supporters, while the general spirit of socia- 
bility among the student body has been one of the outstanding factors in making, the 
year so pleasant for all concerned. 

Coming as the students do from every conceivable walk of life, meeting each other 
two or three times a week, and exchanging interesting, if often diverging views and experi- 





Page 132

ences on so many different subjects, the students are bound to find a wealth of broadening 
information from each other and in many ways this association with ambitious and 
congenial companions, both men and women, has an educational value which comes 
close to rivaling that of the classes. Many a warm friendship has grown out of these 
classes, classes which seem at first sight to be merely places of extra toil, to be taken as a 
necessary evil after a hard day of work. 

The Freshmen have from the start realized, as the entire Commerce School is 
beginning to realize, that they are a part of a greater whole, Loyola University. They 
have realized that they are an integral part of the University and the other departments 
are all realizing their interdependence upon each other. The interest and support shown 
to the Commerce Club dance by the other departments has been a graphic indication of 
this and there is no doubt but that the class keenly realized this good feeling and intends 
to do its best to further it. 

The Commerce School is growing and for that reason we fear that our claim to being 
the largest Freshman Class in the history of the school will be valid only until next 
September. But there is no good reason why the school should not grow every year. 
It now has a wonderful building, and it always has had splendid professors, good courses 
and likeable students. Truly, the school could have no better recommendation than 
the prolific and pleasant times which the class of 1930 have enjoyed under its auspices. 

Thus we halt in our impressions of one year — our first — at the Commerce School, 
but we halt with an eye for the future. For there is no doubt but that the future holds 
great things in store for the School, but it also holds great things for the Class of 1930. 
With one year of success to record, the class is only too anxious for next September to 
bring another chance for another term of pleasure and learning. 


The Freshman Commerce Class 

1 ^^mM^MMME^ ^nMMlMi^^^^^^ ^^^^^^ ^^n 



Three years crowded with success, tumultuous with trials, work 
uncertainty and satisfaction. Three years have passed in testing a 
character, in developing a mind, in making a nurse in the Mercy Hos- 
pital Training School. 

Entirely and carefully equipped by the thoroughness of her train- 
ing and distinctive in the purity and strength of that training's moral 
ideals, she is shown a long, successful road which she might travel. 
The Senior Nurse has passed through the most difficult part of her 
work, she is ready now to become a tremendously needed part of the 
great world of medicine. She is ready to go to become something 
of an example to those who are coming after her in her work. A great 
amount of the interest cultivated in the under classmen depends upon 
the attitude taken by the graduate nurse, a great deal depends upon 
the characteristics she shows under stress of her work in the world. 

If she fails, they may become skeptical, timid or uncertain. If she is successful she gives 

them a bright perspective of a strong but progressive profession. 

In her eagerness of purpose she must not lose those much-needed friendships which 

have been made during her training days. She will want to think of the pleasant times 

the student nurses have enjoyed together at the various parties at which they were 

permitted to stay up until midnight, the evening trips to the "Ambroisa," especially on 

check night. 

Because a great deal has been given to a young woman who has been trained for 

service, a great deal is naturally expected of her. The only way she can fulfill this expecta-

tion is by the sincere appreciation and full realization of her ability. She must forever 
keep in mind that she is a deciding factor in the strength of the Medical profession. She 
must give the best of her learning and strength to the advancement of the moral 
and medical code of that profession. Whatever she may have had to go through — that 
was yesterday. With the benefit of the experience of those yesterdays she has now 

When she had looked forward to the end of her training, the days seemed long and 
uninviting. Now that they are gone, how very short they seemed, how filled with real 
work, great hearts and satisfied tiredness. 

And so, we, the Class of 1927, are about to leave Mercy — some of us going far away, 
while others will linger near a place which has endeared itself to us during our three years 
of training. 

Let us not forget the debt of loyalty we owe to our Alma Mater and let us strive to 
carry out the ideals which she has endeavored to teach us. Neither let us forget the 
friendships we have made here, the friendships which meant so much to us during our 
training days. Let us try to carry always in our hearts the ideals of the true nurse, and let 
us always strive first and foremost to make our lives worthy of them and of our wonderful 

Yesterday's gone, it was only a dream 

Of the past there is naught but remembrance 
Tomorrow's a vision thrown on hope's screen 

Will-o-the-wisp, a mere semblance 
This moment our future characters form 

We make them whatever we choose 
By the deeds and the acts we now perform 
By the words and the thoughts we use. 
So fear not the future nor mourn for the past 

But do all that we can today 
Living each moment as though 'twere our last 
And avoid all that brings delay.

It is an old saying that "History repeats itself," so since the day 
Mercy Hospital began to train nurses there has been a Junior Class, 
but it is with the shy modesty and diffidence of a spring violet that 
we aver there never has been a repetition of the Junior Class of 1926-7. 
Cold and bitter was that January day that sixty young, fearless 
and very serious-minded young women brushed the cloak of frivolity 
and good country air from their shoulders and with grim determina- 
tion to "do or die" started on their life's profession. Time has lessened 
their number until now forty-six put out the banner "do or marry," 
and so merrily they go on, dispensing mercy, spreading cheer and 
avoiding trouble. 

Referring to the aforementioned shy violet modesty — the Juniors 
are reluctant to reveal to the cruel world their true ability — even the instructors fail to 
find it, and at times have even doubted its very existence. They doubted it to such a 
high degree that sleeping in class was tabooed and throwing "cold water" on any project 
meant a ticket home F. T. F. (from the family). 

Despite all these disheartening influences, the class could not take life too seriously 
and, with that boundless hope which springs eternal in the nurse's breast, decided to give 
a Thanksgiving party. The great event took place, after week upon week of agonizing 
preparation, but, alas, what results! Much as the girls hated to admit it, most of the 
desirable and desired bachelor doctors in attendance were adamant to their appeal. 
Tru€, they all did comment upon the "gorgeous evening," but other than that crumb of 
encouragement, things were much the same after as before. The class did, however, 





Secretary- Treas urer 

Page 13 S 

Iilljii jigiijffigj5^^ 

have the consolation of knowing that their efforts, even if fruitless, were appreciated. 

Although the instructors failed to find any visible evidence of ability they always 
lound visible signs of any retreat from cleaning a lavatory or attending class regularly. 
Even though student hearts were heavy when they saw or heard "There's Miss Whitney," 
they were just as heavy when they felt her absence. There was that "hurry feeling" 
when Sister Mary Wace is seen or heard, there is even a slight arterial murmuring when 
Sister Mary Thomasina passes by and it is a strange feeling when the beloved Sister 
Mary Lidwina is at hand. They always experience a certain feeling of pride when the 
Honorable Sister says deeply — very deeply within her — "There is one of my nurses of 
the Class of 1928." 

With one difficulty after another, with one trial after another, but nevertheless with 
happiness and achievement permeating all the work, another year passed. One more 
milestone to pass and forty-six girls will have weathered the crucial part of their lives 
and be ready to take their places beside their sisters who have gone through the testing 
earlier. The half-way mark was passed this year, now as they are about to enter into the 
homestretch they see the goal looming but a short distance away. The period of prepara- 
tion seemed long indeed at the start but now the realization that the class has passed 
two-thirds of the time makes it seem almost incredibly short. Now another senior class 
passes out and the Class of 1928 enters upon its senior year. 

There always has been a Senior Class — that is why history repeats itself. It is with 
all the pride in the world that the Class of 1928 looks to its seniors. 

Vota Vita Mea has been the watchword and guide and it is Mercy's training that has 
put this motto in true blue and gold, and although the way be weary, the gold star 
of reward shines in a stiff white cap, a stiff white uniform and a Vota Vita Mea motto.

In the Freshmen days of the Nursing profession there are days 
that are long, days that are dark, trying, and discouraging; they try 
to the very utmost the student's strength and endurance. But the less 
frequent days flooded with the sun of accomplishment and shadowed 
by the natural fatigue which is always the reward of crowded hours 
spent in the service of God and humanity, transform the first dis- 
couraging months as a novice nurse into an invaluable period de- 
veloping efficiency and thoroughness. 

For the Freshmen nurse the possibilities for advancement are 
more than numerous. Both mentally and physically she is given a 
supreme test. The psychology of her work either makes or breaks her 
character. The stark realization that the world can contain so much 
suffering and misery, that life after a 1,1, is at best, a struggle and some- 
times a bitter one, is apt to make her cynical and unresponsive. Con- 
tact with too much suffering may, if not carefully and sincerely faced, dull that living, and 
vital sense of sympathy — used to a sensible degree — so essential to the complete success 
and perfection of the appreciated nurse. To some of the Freshmen, the deep sense of 
satisfaction and gratification first comes with the initial successful service to the afflicted. 
On others this appreciation bursts suddenly in all the glory of its necessity and universal 
standard in the world. It is her realization of the need of a perfected nursing system 
in the world, which carries the freshman nurse through the sheer physical and mental 
weariness of her first year in training. 

Incentive, combined with the knowledge that, if physically possible, a nurses' treat- 
ment and care after the physician's work, will balance the scales in favor of either life or 
death of her patient, are the two chief factors which instill the struggling novice with 
courage, and make her profession one of the most fascinating of all. A nurse's ability 
to inspire the trust and confidence of the suffering patient is, probably, her greatest

asset. This she must learn in her freshman year by developing and strengthening her 
character. She must learn to appreciate to their fullest extents, both the sunny and 
somber sides of life. She must learn to draw up to her pinnacle of brightness and sun- 
shine, the dim uncertain side of life, where she may face it with courage and charity of 

All this must the neophyte-nurse master and incorporate into her very being. 
And when the time for recreation comes, the young nurse must throw herself into it 
with the same wholeheartedness which marks her work; she must enjoy it as thoroughly 
and as fully as she does the more serious side of her vocation. She must make each 
hour a vivid time of joyful relaxation and wholesome change of mind. In fine, she must 
make play an intensely happy work; she will remember Valentine's Night as a beautiful 
picture. Always it will recall dreamy music, swaying figures, — a wonderful etching — 
set among a wild maze of color and tall, green palms, which seemed to sigh and sway in 
response to the tantalizing strains of the orchestra. 

Chemistry will conjure up thoughts of dreary days spent in the laboratories, 
working over strange formulae — timid approaches to a weighty experiment; it will at 
times remind one of how the professional and, more or less, scholastic chemistry laboratory 
was rudely jolted out of its grimy complacency by loud, but by no means unusual, 

"Bus" rides ushered the spring days into our schedule with a hilarious bang. Rides 
of great fun, loud laughter, and innocent gaiety — usually ending at the famous 
"Ambrosias" — were the regular thing on our few holidays. The thought of these trips 
alone is sufficient to make the graduated freshman look back with pleasure on the days 
passed as a lowly beginner. The long spring-days ever terminated in the restful quiet 
of an evening, which seemed to presage the dawning of the morrow when the days would 
be constantly bright with the sun of success and accomplishment. 

Little by little another nurse is being moulded into an angel of mercy; another 
individual is being suited for the service of mankind; another student is slowly learning 
that life is more than mere living — but, rather that living is to give again what one has 
learned, to others. The true nurse's motto is "Serving I Live."

"To make an art of life is the finest art of all the arts." 
Nursing is truly a great art, the beauty of which is not posted 
here and there, but strewn along the way to all mankind. 

It was in the autumn of 1924 that the class of '27 entered these 
portals. In September, the Curriculum for the ensuing year, together 
with the rules and regulations of the School for Nurses and the duties 
of a faithful, conscientious nurse were explained to them. With all 
this clear to us and a long road to travel, we started on our journey. 
During the first year the Class of '27 enjoyed an outing and a picnic given by the 
Reverend Mother Superior and Sisters. The Bus ride to Palos Park was indeed a great 
novelty and with song and witty laughter, we gave vent to much merriment. With 
eager eyes, we gazed into the distance in search of this most select place of beaut}'. At 
last a grove of trees was seen in the distance surrounded by a large iron fence, which 
added to this spectacular scene. This, we were told was Mount Saint Joseph, the Noviti- 
ate of our Sisters, the Hospitalers of Saint Joseph. Even though it said "Private" over 
the gate-way, we ventured in, there to find the atmosphere of peace, beauty and solemnity 
that is only to be found in such secluded spots. 

The Eucharistic Congress was the most outstanding feature of 1926. The class was 
privileged to be numbered amongst those who sang the High Mass at the Stadium on 
Higher, Education Day and never before was the beauty of our school colors and uni- 
forms of "Blue and White" so artistically displayed as in the procession. 

The Class feels that their school was especially blessed and privileged upon having 





Page Hi 

been the one selected from the vast field of Schools for Nurses to sing in uniform at the 
closing of the Eucharistic Congress at Mundelein. They were stationed on the bridge 
near the Chapel and with great faith, love and adoration, rendered homage in song to 
Our Eucharistic King. 

In the fall they were confronted with greater responsibilities and expectations from 
the superiors. Subjects were deeper, more difficult and required more time together with 
greater sacrifice. 

At last Seniors, and the goal for which they had striven so long and so earnestly, 
seems at last to emerge from the misty realm of possibility and to become something near, 
something real. Is it any wonder that the time flew by on wings of light? 

To the Class, these three years can only be looked upon with love, happiness and 
appreciation. To the most worthy Directress, Sister Helen Jarrell, R. N., they owe 
character building, loyalty and a greater love of God and truth which she has so untir- 
ingly striven to instill in her class and make each a stronger and better woman. 

Enjoying the annual festivities and the many surprises which were given to them; 
the best and foremost of all was the dance given by the Junior Medical Students of 
Loyola University in the K. of C. Club House. 

The public claim is often made that familiarity and continued contact with the sick 
harden the nurse and detract from her power of giving out sympathy; but experience 
has proven that it is the contrary. This intimate knowledge of suffering has developed 
within each nurse an intelligent, true and tender sympathy seeing Christ in each individ- 
ual patient. This is shown by enthusiasm to put into practice that which has so ably 
been transplanted into souls — the duties of caring for the sick and suffering in a con- 
scientious manner. 

There is no greater field for achievement than in the profession of nursing; the high- 
est manifestation of service. Students are sustained by the knowledge that theirs is a 
profession that antedates the pyramids; the medicines administered, the arts practiced 
have been tried and proven by centuries of use. 


St. Bernard's Hospital

In September, 1925, shortly after the Junior Class was organized, 
they received the welcome announcement that the St. Bernard's 
School for Nurses had become affiliated with Loyola University and 
that in the future it would be recognized as an integral part of that 
renowned institution of learning. 

The Junior Class of St. Bernard's have at all times striven for 
the noblest and the best and, through the opportunities afforded 
them by their course of studies, aided by the valuable information 
which they are able to obtain through the use of the reference library 
and the literary section, they hope to broaden their education and 
be able and prepared to meet celebrities from any institution, not only 
from the United States, but from any part of the world; knowing 
well that their education has not been neglected, and that they are 
able to hold with credit to themselves and to their school any posi- 
tion open to them and any work, no matter how difficult, that is given them to do. 

To a Catholic, religion is always considered an indispensable part of learning, and 
certainly it has not been neglected in the case of this class, as members of a Catholic 
School. It was their great joy to be received into the Sodality of the Blessed Virgin. 
This was another link in the chain which slowly bound the members of the class to one 
another and to the school, because in being bound so closely together in religious and 
secular education, they must be loyal to each other and to their Alma Mater. A Catholic 
education, such as the Juniors are receiving, develops the moral intelligence and the 
physical faculties. The Class has learned from the Sisters not only by the word of 
mouth, but also by the eloquently persuasive language of example, and it is a pleasure 
for them to join with the Seniors and the preceding graduating classes in testifying 
devotion and loyalty to an institution which is to them not merely a place of learning, a 
place of training, but a home. 

Having given their girls the best and ever trying to make that best still better, if 





Page 1U 

possible, the directors have not neglected recreation. Knowing the truth of that trite 
phrase, "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" — or its feminine equivalent — they 
have given much recreation, trying to make life within St. Bernard's pleasant and attrac- 
tive, so that the nurses will not find it necessary to seek amusement outside the walls. 
This was accomplished by plays given during the holidays; by motion pictures, both 
educational and entertaining, shown at various times throughout the year in the lecture 
hall; by parties and occasionally by a dance. The most memorable dance was the one 
given by the Loyola Medical students to the nurses at the Knights of Columbus Club- 
house, next door to the hospital. This clubhouse, incidentally, caused a little excite- 
ment and gave the hospital much publicity when it passed into the land of memories a 
short time ago — having burned to the ground. 

When the new Nurses' Home has been completed on the site where the old one now 
stands, there will be nothing lacking to make our home what a home should be. 

Little by little the school is climbing upward; year by year, as all worth-while insti- 
tutions should, it is striving to reach the mark of perfection and the Senior Class of '28 
are its strongest candidates. Meanwhile each and everyone is learning the value of the 
little verse: 

"Love a little, laugh a little, 
Sing a little gaily; 
Work a little, play a little, 
Learn a little daily."

In September when the Freshman Class was organized at St. 
Bernard's, the idea was borne in mind that the years of training there 
were to be years of honest effort. The Freshmen realized that the 
days to come were not to be easy, that they entailed much hard work 
and self-denial, but they also realized that they led to higher educa- 
tion both in temporal and spiritual life. 

Their ideals were centered around those who had preceded them; 
who had striven, not in vain, for that perfection of character, which 
close contact with all that is good and holy yields. The class was not 
together long before the members saw, by the example of their older 
companions, that the path that leads to true, noble womanhood is 
found when one couples her own effort with real reverence of God. 
These women were the pioneers who blazed the trail for the younger 
girls, and it led them straight to the feet of Christ, the King. They 
are His soldiers, and have sworn fealty and allegiance to Him. They sought and found 
the Holy Grail of Eternal happiness with the knowledge always before them, that only 
spotless purity can merit the reward of that quest. The light of God's grace shone forth 
in all their deeds, for in this work, as in no other were they constantly reminded that the 
Angel of Death is ever at hand, and when death shall come for them, their souls, replete 
with happiness, will gain the reward of a life well spent — an eternity with God. 

With this knowledge, they realized that, with His help, they too might hope to 
succeed, but without Him success would be doubtful, and they resolved to be present 
daily at Holy Mass and Holy Communion. The Directress of Nurses, too, often told 
them the benefits to be derived from this wonderful practice, and so they decided it well 
worth the while. She also enrolled them in the Sodality of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 
under whose loving protection and guidance, they are bound to prosper, for she will 
ever keep them pure and filled with love of her Divine Son. 

The talent in the class is unlimited. Progress has already been made in the organiza- 
tion ot a dramatic club, whose presentations will undoubtedly be worthy of the time that 




Page 1J,6 


is devoted to them. In fact, at Christmas time they presented a sketch, "The Coming of 
the Magi," for the good Sisters, the Seniors and Juniors. It was especially well received, 
and a good many words of praise were spoken with reference to it. Consequently, 
since so much can be accomplished with the comparatively small amount of effort spent 
on this endeavor, they are confident that, when opportunity knocks again, they will 
be well equipped to answer promptly. In the new home of the nurses is to be included a 
library where those who are literally inclined will be enabled to rhyme and write as they 
please. In accordance with the musical tendencies of many of the young women, a music 
room, complete in every detail, is also to be installed. After making this start, an or- 
chestra will be formed to provide treats and surprises innumerable. 

In addition to furnishing amusement and entertainment to the members of the class, 
these activities have served to uphold and promote class spirit. They inspired a general 
interest, and had a very salutary influence in urging the students to greater participation 
in other activities. They do not intend to drop out of sight after they have become worthy 
graduates of St. Bernard's, but aspire to be among that select group that prove themselves 
deserving of the bestowal of a Degree for Proficiency by that time honored institution of 
learning, Loyola University. They will not allow the fire of their enthusiasm to cool, 
but will always be foremost and willing to correspond to the great things expected of 
them by their Alma Mater. 

They shall strive to realize great deeds, so that when they too depart from those 
hall of Duty, their acts will be an incentive to those who follow. And thus they will, 
labor on, endeavoring to reach their ideals, fulfilling their quota of good, and following 
in the path traced for them by their divine Lord's hand. 

"Until that day, when from yon starry realm, 

Our call too shall come, Oh, Shepherd of the Flock, 

Our trials shall pass, and joy will overwhelm 

Our earthly sorrows, for thou art the Rock."

Other classes have come and gone before us and still there will 
be others to succeed us, but the class of '27 is different, not only in the 
overworked sense of the word, but in its traditions and chronology. 

We entered the doors of the Chicago College of Dental Surgery 
the largest freshman class in its then history. We have spent four 
long years under its guidance and can proudly say that we are now 
about to be turned out as finished products of dental education. As 
freshmen we began to creep through a maze of books; we plodded 
aimlessly through our sophomore year gaining courage to face the 
future with each bit of new knowledge, as juniors we began to walk 
unaided and now, as graduates, we proudly stalk before the theatre 
of the world, secure in the knowledge that we have qualified as actors 
on the stage of that theatre. 

During the course of our stay at C. C. D. S. the school added to its prestige by becom- 
ing intimately connected with Loyola University. We know that close contact with that 
remarkable body of educators has served greatly to enhance the value of our already 
priceless degree. 

And now turning to the lighter side of the question, let us indulge in a few personal 
glimpses of some of our well-known seniors who have so far failed to request that their 
names should not be printed. 

Bob Walker, a Scotchman, stepped over the line on Saturday, February 12. and with 
Miss Alice Govis. entered the holy bonds of matrimony. 

A. W. Ahrendt is entitled to his M. M. G. degree (Master Mitt-glommer). He has 
'successfully defended his "mitt-glomming" championship this year. 

Jack Biderman is one of the three sleeping partners in his section of the amphi- 
theatre. He is ably assisted by Lorange and Weber, who will soon develop a lateral 
mal-acclusion from sleeping on his chin during lecture hours.

"Brick" Farrell is the champion hog-caller of the class of '27 and easily out-shouts 
any of the professors. 

Ben Duda will best be remembered as the boy who has been so successful in taking 
plaster washes with Healey's stone. 

"Red" McMenamin enjoys the distinction of never having come to class on time. 
He even came in late for final examinations. 

"Marty" Norpell came to school the morning after the senior dance all dressed up 
in a new suit and overcoat. Of course being chairman of the dance committee had 
nothing to do with the new clothes. 

Johnny Van Den Brink has a waste receptacle decorated with his lady's pictures. 
They may act as an incentive to good work. 

Johnny Madell says he is never troubled with insomnia because his landlady dis- 
infects his room three times each week. 

The Boyer and Blohm Company is enjoying a very prosperous year in selling gowns, 
but there is some internal trouble as to how the profits are to be split. 

Harold Austgen is one of Indiana's wise men, but he didn't leave the Hoosier State 
soon enough. 

Clarence Buckley has risen to the heights of advertising manager of the Haymarket, 
which, indeed, is an accomplishment for one who can keep up in his studies so well. 

Benny Krohn, as well as being a gocd dentist, has developed in other lines and now 
is quite a jeweler and pipe maker. 

Fitzpatrick is the maitre d'hotel of the Delta Sig House. He sees to it that the boys 
wear their red flannels and spats during cold weather. 

Leonard Boke believes that any man who wears spats can certainly bake porcelain. 
Dr. Logan told him so. 


The Senior Dental Class 


mrnmmm^mzmm^ BBWMji^ 'w^mm^mm^mjmm^m&m^m, 

Andrew Swiering a 


In presenting forma! evidence of the events of the class of '28 
I find myself following in the footsteps of a host of other class his- 
torians and perhaps falling into the faults of mentioning too many 
names and events meaningless of course to possible future readers of 
this article. Mindful of good intent in this matter I shall attempt to 
record only those incidents felt to be of importance and sufficiently 
. | interesting to repay reading the account. Certainly our year has been 

Hfc^^PH varied enough to comprise material for such an article. Any failure 

! B^ 'Vfftk I in measuring up to this standard must be ascribed to the author. 

The latter two years of dental education comprise something 
within itself — a type of schooling to be found in a dental school alone. 
Didactic work with its attending studying and examinations is rele- 
gated to a minor position — at least in the mind of the students — and 
the great battle for clinical points is entered upon. A formerly sane student body is by 
this same step metamorphosed into a 'violently moaning group of maniacs — resolutelv 
intent on gaining these momentous points. 

And thus on last October ninth was the great and lasting battle of Harrison Street 
begun. With the intention of an early and painless graduation the class fell to work 
with resolve and our report index demonstrated soon that our class was not to be taken 
with levity. 

Lest the thought be entertained that our strife is all absorbent I must recount the 
social affairs of the year. Our first dance was given at the Parkway Hotel last fall. The 
Parkway is a rather unpretentious building in a quiet residential section of the city. 
The affair partook of these unpretentious qualities, but was on the w-hole quite successful. 
University activities succeeded our own and it is to be noted that our class w r as well 
represented at these affairs. 





Page 152 


The truly great accomplishment of the year was the annual Junior Prom given this 
spring. We maintain that the most successful and stupendous social venture of our school 
history was engineered on this occasion. The preliminaries to this constitute one of the 
salient features of the year. After a great deal of discussion pro and con the conservatives 
lost, and Tracy Drake's Hotel was selected for the site of the Prom. The Senior Class 
being the guests of honor were forced to admit that we eclipsed their party of last year 
given at the Palmer House. 

Fraternity affairs and other class dances rounded out the 1927 social season. 

In the literary field the publication of the year book went to our class; the lot of 
editorship going to John McMahon, and we sincerely feel that the Dentos will attain 
its usual degree of perfection this year. 

In athletics our class has been well represented on Loyola teams. We note with satis- 
faction the names of our classmates appearing in the lineups. Eddie Norton, Augustus 
Gott and Maurice Biderman need no introduction to University students. We also have 
an excellent basket ball team in Powley, Dixon, Owens and Slad. Having attained a 
splendid record they need no further introduction. 

So here we are at the end of a year which mingled much pleasure and some pain, 
thus comprising this kaleidoscopic life. May we look forward to the coming year and 
anticipation of graduation. Might I echo the good wishes of all our classmates in saying 
good bye to the Seniors?

Being sophomores has its advantages as well as its disadvantages. 
Being wise in the ways of the school, the boys fell back into their old 
habits and so far the writer has not had much luck in locating any one 
whom he can depend upon to have a package of cigarettes in his 
possession during the day. Methinks the fags have their own little 
corner in the lockers. 

It was noticed that some of the fellows rather avoided the supply 
houses. Rumor has it that several accounts were carried over the 
summer. Well, what of it? They might as well become accustomed 
to being carried. 

Ponzi Hauff returned to school with a Nash, a bank book and 
wierd tales of stock selling ventures, which apparently netted him a 
handsome profit for a summer's work. Well, Ponzi, old boy, we still 
cannot forget that you have a little matter of a few dollars to settle with our class treasurer. 

For no reason at all a class meeting was held and officers were elected. While it was 
generally admitted that the officers were satisfactory, the meeting was more or less of a 
failure, due to a shortage of ammunition. Also, most of our beloved sophomores, as soon 
as opportunity presented itself, remembered important engagements and left. It is nice 
to be known as the "go-getter" class of the school, but something tells me one man does 
most of the work. 

About seven anatomy lectures later, a few of the freshmen accepted invitations to 
our spacious Wood Street campus where tender sophomore hands caressed their fevered 
brows with green paint. This was eventually abandoned, due to a shortage of paint and 
freshmen. Then came the pathetic part. Some young freshmen with literary tendencies 
wrote a glaring article for iheLoyola A T ews under the headline reading, "Dental Sophomores 
in Outbreak of Misguided Spirit." Well, boys, thank heaven, we have a little class spirit, 
even if it is misguided.

Dr. Job has at last solved a problem which has long confronted some of our most 
noted faculty members. He now lectures while a playful little brown pup meanders 
around the amphitheatre. The students of course, divert a major portion of their atten- 
tion to the "pooch" and hence cannot successfully concentrate on the subject at hand. 
Result — only a few members of the class are able to get any sleep. 

Zubas will give clinics in yawning technique each afternoon in Dudley's beanery. 

Otherwise the sophs enjoyed a prosperous year. They had their share of men in all 
the activities on the West Side Campus, and Hugh Burke kept up the honor of the class 
in an athletic way by playing consistently stellar football for Roger Kiley and his Loyola 
University Ramblers. Nice work, Hugh. Keep up the old drive. 

The two years that have passed since we entered C. C. D. S. to prepare ourselves for 
life's battles and to fit ourselves to be men have passed more rapidly than we imagined 
they would that October evening of 1925 when we were first introduced to C. C. D. S. 
The looking ahead the Junior year and the Infirmary seemed so far off that it was difficult 
for us to realize that some day we, too, should be Juniors and should try our hand in the 

With Amylppsin, Hemorrhages, Rigor Mortis and the ductless glands conquered 
we have taken heart. The names that were previously mentioned only in dark cellars 
are now mentioned in public places by the most timid. In a few more weeks our pro- 
fessors will have given us the final polish, and we shall then be able to demonstrate our 
skill on living patients. 

In scholarship and workmanship the class of 1928 is unexcelled. We offer no apologies 
for class entertainments, they have been of the best. Two short years remain between 
us and graduation. May the achievements of the past be the forerunners of even greater 
and better things in the coming vears. May our efforts ever be directed onward and 
upward, for C. C. D. S., and for 1928. 


The Sophomore Dental Class

We are a distinctive lot. We say this advisedly, even though we 
be but freshmen. Yet there is truth in it. Heretofore, a freshman in 
dental school was but one of those animals who had just completed 
his high school career and its period of adolescence, and was still pos- 
sessed with the importance that had come to him from being a mem- 
ber of the Senior Ring Committee or a third vice-president of the 
debating society. But in this present age of beauty and enlighten- 
ment, a freshman in dental school must have completed at least one 
year of accredited college work and those who seek to enter the ranks 
of the dental profession in three years must have had at least two 
years of college work. We say again, we are a distinctive lot. 

We entered the sacrosanct portals of the Chicago College of Den- 
tal Surgery with some misgiving and not a little bit of trepidation. 
Instead of a group of buildings surrounded by a terraced campus in some rather select 
part of the city or town, we saw one massive building, a bit weather-beaten, but still 
huge and vivid to the unaccustomed eye. Inside, there were new experiences for us 
and new sights for us. No respected pictures of respected benefactors adorned the walls 
that came into our immediate sight. This school must be different, we mused, for our idea 
of the prime requisites of any school was a large picture of the man who has spent his 
money in putting the building up, then a few students, and finally a couple of professors. 
But further experiences awaited us in the large amphitheater on the fourth floor. It was 
just the thing, we thought, and many of us do, for a motion picture during some of the 
more tiresome courses of the dental freshman curriculum. There in the bull-pen gathered 
some awesome figures, looking learned and fierce — the latter because of speeches that 
had not been properly memorized. There, in those men, was to repose our fate as dental 
practitioners, and we knew it. Knowledge, in that case, doing nothing to soothe our 
mind's. After speeches, which are an essential adjunct to an event of this kind, we 
clambered down the four flights of stairs, past unfamiliar laboratories with plaster-strewn 




Page 156 

floors, and were soon outside where the ever shining lights of the Cook County Hospital 
beamed us a cheery welcome. Thus our introduction to Chicago College cf Dental 

We gathered again in that theater in little groups, to meet our professors and to 
let them make their terrific impressions on our plastic minds. They began to file past us 
on the rostrum, each one no more familiar to us than an individual selected from the file 
of "the wooden soldiers." Now we know that Dr. Platts was there. A bit stern, was 
he, with his greatest convexity in the middle third. We must be professional, you know. 
In operative lab we came to know him better, and also to meet his charming assistant, 
Dr. McNulty. There they introduced us to the human dentition — Dr. Platts, concisely 
and firmly, Dr. McNulty, jibingly and accusingly. Now they are familiar figures: Mac, 
with his auburn thatch and gentle blue eyes that give the wrong impression of his make- 
up — for he is not gentle — and Dr. Platts, with his stern smile (aha! a paradox), and 
epigrammatic sayings. 

And there is Dr. Kendall. No one can be long in school and not know him. There 
are a variety of ways of knowing him, to be sure, but one must necessarily know him as 
one must necessarily see the Arc d'Triomphe when one visits Paris. If you miss the 
first few recitations you will know him. If you make "A" recitations the first few times, 
you will also know him. More agreeably, however. Truly Dr. Kendali is an institution 
at Chicago Dental and is respected as one of its traditions. 

Our first anatomy lecture was presided over by Dr. Thesle Job. We received our 
first impression when we heard his name. We wondered, a bit thoughtfully and thank- 
fully, how two names like that could rest so harmoniously and placidly so near to each 
other. One of them is enough to disrupt the ordinary morale of an ordinary freshman. 
But Dr. Job is not ordinary nor a freshman. What most of us thought, when we met him 
and heard him was, "Are we expected to know even one small part of what he knows 
about anatomy?" 

There you have, in part, our opinion of those who teach, or try to teach us. We do not 
feel it necessary to mention that we think them a fine lot, doing all they can to make the 
root and cusp strewn highway, with its yawning cavities, easier so that we may attain 
our object, the dental profession. 


The Freshman Dental Class 

THE CLASS OF 19 3 1 


Wednesday, October 5, 1926, saw the opening of the first pre- 
Dental Class of the Chicago College of Dental Surgery, Dental De- 
partment of Loyola University. 

With eighty-seven in the class, organization took place rapidly 
and the following officers were elected: Walter Buchmann, presi- 
dent, Roland Groetzinger, vice-president, Fred F. Snider, secretary, 
Herbert Weis, treasurer, and Charles Peters, business manager. 

A spirit of cooperation with the University and with the Dental 
College has always been the aim of this new class. 

A basketball team was organized and several games were played. 
An orchestra of seven pieces has been functioning throughout the 

One of the big features of the season was the dance given by the 
pre-dents at the Opera Club. Two hundred couples enjoyed Spike Hamilton's Orchestra 
and the special entertainment. 

The Opera Club with its gorgeous orange and purple tinted lights, with its beautiful 
Venetian boat scene, its sumptuous canopies and overhanging tapestries, its luxurious 
lounge rooms, syncopation that tinges, tantalizes, touches the heart and nerves, the 
throng of swaying dancers — laughter and clinking of glasses at the tables — pantalooned 
cigarette girls wending their way down the aisles — amorous whisperings of sweethearts 
in the shadows — oh, what a glorious night! Beauty — youth — music — laughter — love, all 
combined to make the pre dent first affair the Dance Sensation of the Season. 

Can we easily forget those fleeting hours which were intersperced with entertain- 
ment by such talented young individuals as Maurice Wasserman, Evelyn and Frank 
Munro, and Lossman. Mr. Wasserman sang "Forgive Me." We assure him there was 
certainly no need to forgive such an excellent voice and such depth of feeling which he 
put into it. The Dandinfs, a dancing couple who were developed by Paul Ash, gave an 
exhibition of some mean steps and dancing in their renderings of the Charleston and

Black Bottom. The latter two, banjo artists, gave us their conception of real harmony. 
Did we agree with them? I'll say we did. 

The courses given under the supervision of professors from the University and the 
Dental College are English, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Prosthetics, and Dental 

The morning starts with a "bang" in the biology class, when Bob Heupel receives 
most of the inner workings of a frog on the back of the neck from his too enthusiastic 
friend, Roland Groetzinger. Heupel immediately sets out to repay the compliment 
when interrupted by the entrance of Professor Lanahan. After a full hour discussion of 
the nervous system of a frog, Mr. Cipitelli is called upon to describe the said system, 
but alas, woe to the poor frog possessed of such nerves as Cipitelli outlines. It would 
without doubt be the "hoppingest" frog in creation. 

The next subject in order is English under Professor Kuhinka's gentle tutelage. 
Here Class President Buchmann, at the ardent entreaty of a committee made up of 
Conger, Black, McKeowen, Moore and several others who have not studied their assign- 
ment, requested time to hold a class meeting, a move to which Professor Kuhinka kindly 

After lunch we find them again assembled in the class of oral anatomy under the 
efficient instruction of Doctors Platts and McNulty. This session officially opens with 
Dr. McNulty's hard-boiled statement, 'Answer the roll if you are here," given in a tone 
of voice that makes a pre-dent answer "here" whether he is present or not. 

Chemistry is the next evil on the daily schedule of this enterprising class. Here 
Professor Cannon is in constant danger of his life from the various mixtures concocted 
by these would-be chemists. Mr. Buchmueller, one of the most intellectual members of 
this group (he admits it), apparently has discovered some new law of nature when the 
test tube of some questionable mixture suddenly explodes, narrowly missing the Bryan 
twins. Consternation prevails as the entire class groups around Buchmueller and Pro- 
fessor Cannon, while the latter calmly explains Buchmueller's latest phenomenon, 
apparently not at all impressed as to its scientific value. 

We of the pre-Dental Class feel that we have a real organization, one which has 
striven hard and succeeded in attaining the ideals and standards for which the class was 
instituted. However, we realize that this has only been a beginning — a beginning of 
something bigger and better. WALTER A. BUCKMANN.

Loyola University Library, situated on the North side campus, is 
primarily for the use of students and faculty. It is open every school 
day from eight thirty A. M. until five o'clock P. M. The use of the 
library is growing each year and the attendance and the circulation of 
books bear testimony to the fact that the library is an important 
factor in the scheme of every day student activities. 

New additions to the various classes of books are constantly 
being made, and in the past year much time has been devoted to 
bringing the collection of bound magazines up to date. These period- 
icals will form an important working background for the present as 
well as the future resources of the library. Among the ijnportant 
items in the library are: 
The Acta Sanctorum: This set is the work of the Bollandists, a community of 
Belgium Jesuits, who began the task in the year 1603, and on which their successors 
are still engaged. It contains the life of every saint in the calendar, giving only the facts 
for which proof may be found. 

The Analecta BoUandiana: Published by the same community as the Acta Sanc- 
torum, is the Analecta BoUandiana. It is published once a year, devoted exclusively to 
hagiography, supplementing and correcting the Acta Sanctorum by printing any newly 
discovered facts in this field; reproducing manuscripts, and reviewing any newly pub- 
lished book on the subject throughout the world. 

The Monumenta Historica: a very rare and valuable set of periodicals published 
between the years 1894 and 1911 by the Jesuits of Madrid. 

The Monumenta Pedagogica: is of special interest. It contains all the educational 
documents of the Jesuits prior to 1586. 

The Maker Collection: one of the most valuable possessions of the library is the gift 
of Edward Maher and comprises nearly four hundred volumes on Napoleon and the 
French Revolution. M. LILLIAN RYAN.

Any collection of law books may be called a law library, but the 
unusual, interesting and well equipped one must be worthy of its 
designation as such. The outstanding feature, therefore, should be 
its very new as well as its very old editions. 

Inasmuch as such a collection of books must be kept up to the 
minute with advance reports and opinions, recent editions are per- 
haps neither unusual nor unexpected. The possession of old prints is, 
however, something to tell about. For the use of our law school 
students we now have available several of the old black letter books 
dating back to the seventeenth century. Among these are "Reports 
of Edward Bulstrode of late resolutions and judgments given in the 
Court of King's Bench in the time of the Late Reign of King James." Published at 
London — Fleet street, 1657. Another interesting set is that in two volumes of the 
first American edition of "The Spirit of Laws," edited in Philadelphia in 1802. 

The new building affords the greatest step in the plan of maintaining a law library 
at Loyola of which both faculty and students may be proud. The authorities have shown 
their willingness to cooperate in the maintaining of a Law Library second to none by 
their generous appropriations and by their general attitude of encouragement in every 
way. The outlook for the Law Library is bright indeed, with its splendid new quarters 
and with so many opportunities presented it to expand rapidly and permanently.

Loyola University Alumni Association has completed another 
year filled with activity, indicative of the fact that the graduates have 
continued to take a very keen interest in the progress, expansion and 
development of the University. New undertakings have been made 
and established interests fostered with uniform and encouraging 

More members of the Alumni Association were kept constantly 
informed with the progress of the old school, through the medium of the 
Loyola News than ever before, and as a result the projects fostered by 
the Alumni met unusual success. 

The Homecoming program held in connection with the Loyola, 

Arkansas Aggie Football game, staged in the Cubs ball park was the 

occasion of a fine turnout, both of students and members of the 

Alumni Association' who all joined in the Hop given after the game at the Gym. The 

Alumni wish to take this opportunity to compliment the fraternities on the Campus for 

their aid in making the entire Homecoming Program a success. 

Another undertaking which met with prosperous termination was the Maroon and 
Gold Student-Alumni Special to the Loyola-St. Louis game, sponsored by George A. 
Lane, Jr., Alumni Secretary. Under his direction a special train was chartered and 
hosts of the old timers joined with the present student body in following the team to 
the Mound City for the annual contest. 

Other activities in which the men took active part were the management of the 
National Catholic Interscholastic Basketball Tournament in which many of the Alumni 
participated as members of the executive and central committees; the promotion of the 
Gorman Memorial Fund and lastly the projecting of the One-Hundred Dollar per Plate 
Testimonial Dinner given in honor of Rev. William H. Agnew, S. J., and Rev. Frederic 
Siedenburg, S. J., an account of which may be read on another page of this book.

The story of the Loyola University Alumnae finds its beginning 
in the founding of the School of Sociology by Father Siedenburg in 
1914. For what group of pioneers ever lived who did not feel a unity 
of interest and experience and ideals, which bound its members closely 
together? And so it was but a natural outgrowth of that first year of 
the new school, that in October, 1915, these women, the first students 
of the School of Sociology who had helped to make history for the 
school, should organize as the Loyola University Alumnae. From this 
small nucleus has grown the large organization of the present day, 
including in its membership the women from the various departments 
of the University. 

There have been three affairs given by the Alumnae during the 
past year. The most notable of these was the card party given in May, 
1926, in the Gold Room of the Congress Hotel. This affair proved to be a huge success 
socially and financially and the proceeds — over fifteen hundred dollars — was used to 
furnish the sacristy of the faculty chape! on the Rogers Park campus. A bionze plate 
at the sacristy door memoralizes this gift of the Loyola University Alumnae and Father 
Siedenburg, their faculty advisor. 

On January 15, 1927, the Alumnae held their annual luncheon at the New Illinois 
Womens' Athletic Club, followed by election of officers and a brief program at which 
Father Pernin gave some impressions of Europe, gathered during the month of May while 
he was traveling as the official representative of the Eucharistic Congress. 

The opening of the new Downtown School at 28 North Franklin Street in February, 
was of special interest to the Alumnae, as the building gave them a new home, and in 
honor of the occasion they had a "house-warming" on Sunday afternoon, April 3. 

As we go to press, the Alumnae are in the midst of preparations for their 1927 card 
party, again to be given at the Congress Hotel. The proceeds are to be used for the estab- 
lishing of the seventh scholarship for the training of social workers in the School of 
Sociology. HELEN GANEY.

In this section of the Loyolan, an innovation this year, the staff has attempted to 
give some impression of the many-sided life around this great and far-flung university. 
It is necessarilly incomplete, on account of the limitiations of the book, but still we hope 
that one may hereby gain some idea of the many and scattered streams which merge 
into one to form our ideal — the great Loyola. 

Probably the most important and noteworthy progress during the past few years has 
been the growth of a real university spirit. The integral colleges of the university, 
scattered in location, and often divergent in interests, have each grown immensely, 
but more important than that, they have come to realize their relation and their de- 
pendence upon each other. Individually they have prospered; but their real strength 
lies in their functioning not as units, but as one great homogenous whole, the real Loyola. 

And this year, that fusion has at least ceased to be a dream and assumed a degree 
of reality. The success of Homecoming and of the Junior Prom, and the support the 
publications have received in all departments is a real sign of this. Thus we have a real 
Loyola emerging from the blending of the several departments, the schools not losing 
their individuality, but merging their private interests into the greater ones of the 

Such is campus life at Loyola — a number of vastly different environments and in- 
terests, but all working toward the same goal, the betterment of their common Alma 

In the pages which follow will be found first a description of some of the salient feat- 
ures of the past year for the entire university, then an event of importance for the Arts 
and Sciences department and finally a number of random snapshots of Loyola at work 
and at play. No attempt has been made to separate these according to class or depart- 
ment — they are all Loyolans.

Unquestionably the most significant event of the year from the standpoint of the 
growth, expansion and unification of the university was the opening of the new Downtown 
quarters. With the opening of the second semester the three important downtown 
units of the university found themselves at last in a building of their own and, more 
important, a building of which they can be justly proud to call their own. 

Since October, 1914 the Downtown School was housed in the Ashland Block, gradu- 
ally taking additional space and growing with the years until it finally became impossible 
to extend its work in the Ashland Block. For several years the Dean had been casting 
about for a new home, but every location that seemed promising was financially prohibi- 
tive, until a kind Providence directed our steps to two four-story buildings at 20-28 
North Franklin Street. These were ninety by ninety feet, were in good physical condition 
and were surrounded on all sides by light and air. They were purchased in June, 1926, 
from Mr. Ellers of Thompson-Ellers Co., for 8300,000.00 and were remodelled at an 
expense of 8110,000. Mr. C. A. Eckstorm was the architect and Matthew Rauen & 
Sons the general contractors. 

On February first the School moved in. Both the front and the interior of the build- 
ing were so changed that the first impression is of a building brand-new. Particularly 
imposing is the entrance and lobby which is done in green verde and Napoleon gray 

marble with genuine bronze trim- 
mings. The shops on the first floor 
and in the basement are to be rented, 
but the three other floors of the build- 
ing are exclusively for the school. 

There are ample lobbies on all 
floors. On the second floor is the 
information desk and the switchboard, 
together with three public telephone 
booths, ten executive offices, the 
Law library, faculty room, book 
store and three class-rooms. On the 
third floor are the offices of the 
Graduate School, conference room, 
students club room, three class rooms, 
the general library and ladies rest 
room. On the fourth floor there are 
seven class rooms, two of which 
open into each other, with a capacity 
of over two hundred. 

The smaller details of a modern 
school have not been omitted. On 
every floor there are steel lockers for 
the students, drinking fountains and 
smoking rooms. Provisions have 
been made for a chapel, but nothing 
but the Gothic windows are thus far 
in place. The double class room, 
the club room and rest rooms make 
the Downtown School a desirable 
central place for meetings of university 
In Construction groups. Thus far the Alumni and

Alumnae have made it their headquarters — and the Sock and Buskin Club — not to speak 
of the convocations of the Graduate School, have all enjoyed the conveniences of the 

The Law library already contains about eight thousand volumes with ample room for 
expansion. The Sociology library has made provisions for a deposit from the Chicago 
Public Library, with a capacity of fifteen hundred books. 

Located at Market Street and Washington Boulevard, the new school is conveniently 
reached by students from all parts of the city. It is served by the North, West and South 
side elevated railways, by the surface lines and by the West side motor bus. Being just 
outside the boundaries of the Loop, it possesses ample parking facilities, a convenience 
greatly appreciated by the high-powered Loyola youth attending. In its relation to the 
Loop it is ideal, being just far enough away to escape all the unpleasant features, such as 
congested traffic, but yet is so near that it is very easy for anyone to reach it from any 
part of the business district and is readily available for the many conveniences and 
attractions of down-town Chicago. 

Without exception the students have found the new place a vast improvement over 
the old, not to mention the consciousness of being in one's own home. The happiest 
thought in connection with the new school is that it is not only adequate for our present 
needs but with twice our present registration, it will still be suitable and sufficient. In 
spite of this, the Dean thinks that it vwl serve for ten years and will then give way to a 
twenty-story skyscraper, the top floors of which will be the Downtown School of the 

The results of this tremendous 
step upward are not hard to visualize. 
The very fact that theLaw, Commerce 
and Downtown College departments 
have such perfectly-appointed quar- 
ters, with all the room one could 
possible ask for is in itself an im- 
measurable improvement. But, great- 
er than that, these vital and integral 
departments now have a real home, a 
place to call a University, a place to 
expand and take to themselves all the 
functions of great departments of a 
great university. To the other de- 
partments, and especially to the 
university as a whole, this change 
means one of the greatest steps in the 
unification and organization of the 
university. That addition of this 
building means that Loyola is now 
fitly represented in the Loop, that the 
university has a central meeting-place 
which is as vital and component a 
part of it as either of the other two 
centers. The university now has its 
three great branches, North, West and 
Loop, each in fitting quarters, each 
pulsing and vibrant with healthy 
g_ro\vth, and each forming a vital and 
equal part of a great university. Completed

The climax of anyone's univer- 
sity course, be he an Arts and 
Science, Law, Medic, or any other 
departmental graduate, is commence- 
ment. It is the goal, perhaps the 
unconscious one, but nevertheless 
the goal of his four or six years of 
work. It represents the culmination 
of the year's intellectual activity on 
the part of the university and the 
distribution of the rewards and 
acknowledgments for the same, and, 
finally, it is the one activity of the 
year in which no one department 
can claim to have a greater share 
than any other. It is the day on which the great, the primary and formerly the only 
function of a university, that of scholastic endeavor, occupies the entire stage. It is 
Learning's day, Scholarship's triumph. 

For fifty-six years Loyla has held her commencements, and in recent years they have 
been held under the most favorable and inspiring of conditions — upon the beautiful 
terraces of the North Campus. With the majestic dome of the Cudahy Science Hall 
in the background, the graduates annually assemble upon the crest of the verdant em- 
bankment, to receive their degrees. From the foot of the knoll back to the maroon walls 
of the Administration Building, their admirers gather to view their triumph and to hear 
the farewell benedictions of the faculty. 

The Commencement of 1926 was the largest in the history of Loyola. Five hundred 
and ninety degrees were conferred, a number which set a record for all time for the 
university, but a record which will probably fall this year. Of these degrees, five were 

Page 168 

honorary, thirty-seven conferred for 
outstanding service to the com- 
munity, and thirteen were for ad- 
vanced graduate work. 

The academic procession was 
splendidly planned, winding its way 
from the Administration Building by 
the lake front around the crowd, to 
pass by way of the campus walks in 
front of the Academy Building and 
then up the terrace to the sections 
reserved on the platform. First 
came the nurses, then the candidates 
for bachelor's degrees, academic and 
professional, followed by the soon- 
to-be masters and doctors. The entire 

university faculty followed, then the guests of honor, the Right Reverend Monsignor 
P. L. Biermann and the Right Reverend Monsignor M. J. FitzSimmins, and finally 
President William H. Agnew, and the speaker of the occasion, George H. Derry, Ph.D. 

The conferring of the bachelors', masters' and doctors' degrees occupied the greater 
part of the occasion. Then came the presentation of the five honorary degrees of Doctors 
of Law. They were awarded to Dr. Bertha Van Hoosen, by Dean Louis D. Moorehead 
to Sister Mary Veronica Ryan, by Dr. Edward L. Moorehead; to Dr. William H. G. 
Logan, by Dr. Charlen N. Johnson; to Dr. George William Mahoney, by Regent Patrick 
J. Mahan, S. J., and to Dr. Thomas J. Barrett, by Dr. Truman W. Brophy. 

Dr. Derry's speech was the last event of the day, but it was truly an epic which the 
graduates may well carry with them as the epitome of the teachings of their college 
days. With his wonderful words of guidance and inspiration ringing in their ears, the 
graduates slowly filed off the platform and, in the crimson rays of the setting sun, the 
Fifty-sixth Annual Commencement passed into history.

There is no event on the calendar of the college year so significant, so far-reaching as 
Homecoming. Other occasions are of interest to the students alone, to the faculty alone, 
or even to the alumni alone. But Homecoming appeals directly to all of these groups, 
and, still more important, not to them as separate groups, but as a component whole, 
as vital and inseparable parts of a great university. The outside world looks upon Home- 
coming with interest. They realize that it must mean more to a university than merely 
another celebration, or simply another chance for merriment. They realize it because 
of the seriousness with which the preparations are made, because of the responsive, 
eager attitude manifested by all of the interested parties. 

With the success of the first real Homecoming — that of 1925 — as an incentive, 
Loyola was at last ready for a real Homecoming, done on a larger and more elaborate 
scale than ever before and backed by students, faculty and alumni to a hitherto un- 
precedented degree. And such a Homecoming it proved to be. 

November 19 and 20 were the dates for this occasion, and the football game with 
the Arkansas Aggies was the piece de resistance of the occasion. The Blue Key Honor 
Society, organized last year at Loyola for just such purposes, was ready and willing to 
prove again its unquestioned worth. Upon the Athletic Committee of this organization 
fell the burden of handling the thousand and one details necessary for its successful 
completion. That Homecoming was such a success is proof enough that the Committee 
did its appointed work well. 

The festivities started on Friday night, November 19, with a bonfire and torch 
celebration on the campus. After an hour or two of cheers and bombs, an auto parade 
started. Around Rogers Park, down as far as Wilson Avenue, and back as far north as 
Howard Street the gaily-decorated procession wound its noisy way. As the cars filed 
past the Granada Theatre the keen eyes of the judges fell upon the cars, for the frater- 
nities of Loyola had shown their spirit by contributing a cup for the best emblazoned 

Pi Alpha Lambda's car, winner of the Fraternities' Cup.

car in the parade. The arbiters made their decision, but cruelly refrained from an- 
nouncing it until the following night. 

The next day, Saturday, was bitterly cold, with a chill lake breeze sweeping across 
Chicago with enough boreal blast to discourage anybody but a Loyola alumnus on 
Homecoming. The "old boys," however, bravely ambled to the Cubs Park tor the 
game and the Ramblers showed their appreciation for this support by fighting through the 
frigid game for a hard 7-0 victory. Between the halves the freshmen contributed their 
share to the day's fun by holding their cap-burning and thereby saying farewell — much 
against the sophomores' wishes — to the hated green headgear. At the end of the third 
quarter, the entire stands rose in cheer for the seven veteran Ramblers who were fighting 
their last battle for Loyola on their home grounds. 

After the game, many of the alumni returned to the campus to enjoy the hospitality 
of the fraternities, while many more returned home to make their preparations for the 
climax of the celebration — the Homecoming Dance. 

The dance was held that evening in the gymnasium — at least it was reputed to be 
the gymnasium, but the Blue Key committee had done such noble work in decorating 
that no one could recognize the scene of many a breath-taking basketball battle. The 
dance itself will be described elsewhere, but suffice it to say that it was a splendid success, 
a success well in keeping with the rest of Homecoming. 

During the dance the Committee at last announced the awful secret and presented 
the Fraternities Cup to Pi Alpha Lambda in the person of Edward Bremner, whose 
car had been adjuged the best-decorated in the parade. 

Thus was Homecoming at last made a reality at Loyola. Thanks largely to the splen- 
did work of the Blue Key's committee, headed by Emmet Hogan and assisted by William 
Colohan, Loyola had advanced another great step in her work of uniting the departments 
and perfecting the Alumni association.

The Installation of the Arts and 
Sciences Student Council, Friday, 
May 21, 1926, was an important 
date in the history of student govern- 
ment on the North Campus. On 
that day was inaugurated the tradi- 
tion of the newly elected Student 
Council taking its oath of office 
before the student body. The oc- 
casion was propitious for such a 
public display in that the new 
constitution had just been approved 
by the student body and as a conse- 
quence student government at Loyola 
was now on a firm basis, with firm 
authority where previously there had 
been but a shadowy nominal control. 
The beginning of this tradition meant 
that student government would be 
brought before the student body as never before, that the students would have a tangible 
means of realizing that they had a governing body with fixed powers and with fixed 

The new student council, headed by Frank Lodeski, and including John Mullen, 
John Waldron and Hilary O'Leary, marched into the assembly in company with their 
predecessors, Thomas Stamm, John Connelly, and Marshall McMahon, and the entire 
senior class in academic robes. The oath of office was solemnly administered by Dean 
Reiner and pledges of earnest work were given the students by their new representatives. 
The central figure of this assembly was Thomas J. Stamm, retiring president. He 
had left an administration crowded with more real achievement than ever before. The

new constitution, which had at last 
placed student government upon a 
firm basis, was almost entirely his 
work. He had labored unceasingly 
to establish traditions at the North 
Side, had established the freshman 
cap custom, had successfully handled 
the first Student-Faculty banquet, 
had standarized the rings for the 
university graduates, had inaugurated 
the annual Defense Day at the 
school, and had been the first student 
council president to preside over an 
assembly of the students. His 
speech of farewell and good wishes 
was heard by the crowd with real 
appreciation, and, as he clasped 
Lodeski's hand, a real and vital out- 
burst of cheering went up from the 
entire assembly. 

Frank Lodeski followed him. In a short, but earnest speech, he thanked his pred- 
ecessor for the start he had given him, and pledged the student body his unsparing 
efforts for the coming year. He, too, was well-received, indicating that the students had 
confidence that he would faithfully perform his appointed task. 

James Barrett, president of the senior class, concluded the program with another 
speech backed up by a record of real effort and achievement. His speech was short in 
length, but it did not take him long to find a responsive note in the students, and another 
cheer showed that work well done at Loyola can be appreciated.

The athletic side of a university is one which many people claim is overemphasized 
at present. Certainly the vast amount of publicity given the intercollegiate games, 
especially in football, has caused many to have a disproportionate idea of their importance 
It has been charged that many schools have sacrificed their integrity upon the altar of 
the great god of athletic success. There have been abuses, no doubt, but, everything 
considered, that is scarcely a reason for condemning athletics or athletic success. Athletics 
are a vital part of a university, and athletic success is something to be prized, to be sought 
after, but not to be secured at the price of any of the finer things of university life. 

Such has been the athletic policy of Loyola. Her teams have passed the formative 
stage and she has built up some real traditions of clean sport, of gentlemanly conduct on 
and off the field, of unyielding fight, regardless of odds, of victory without boasting and 
defeat without complaint. Her teams ha\ e achieved great success, but, more than that, 
they have always carried the name of Loyola with honor to themselves and to their 
school, wherever and whenever they played. 

Athletics at Loyola have enjoyed a splendid year, a year which showed them to be 
solidly established upon a basis of real sport, taught by wonderful coaches and backed 
by unimpeachable eligibility rules. The adoption of the freshman rule this year was 
probably the greatest single step taken by a Loyola athletic administration, one that 
can be compared only with the securing of Roger Kiley as head coach. By it Loyola 
immediately rose to the rank of a real and great university, whose standards compare 
with those of any other institution. 

The teams themselves have been successful beyond measure. The football team 
played through the hardest schedule in its history, leaving no Loyolan any cause to be 
ashamed of his team. The team carried the Maroon and Gold all over the country, 
earning for themselves the sobriquet of the "Ramblers." The basketball team, starting 
with practically no material, and with a number of real stars declared ineligible by the 
freshman rule, played through the greatest season in history, never losing a game on 
its home floor. Track was reborn with great success and solidly built for the future. 
Tennis and golf, hitherto precarious sports were also firmly established as real sports at 

And, probably Loyola's greatest work has been the encouragement of high school 
athletics. The results of the National Catholic Basketball Tournament are too well 
known to mention again. And this year Loyola will also sponsor the Chicago Catholic 
League Track Meet, another step in the development of strong Catholic High School 
Athletics. That is Loyola's aim, the development of athletics for all, and the proper 
encouragement of sport for all.

To the memory of "Bud," hero-captain of the 1925 
Ramblers, veteran of many a grid battle, who led his team 
through their greatest season, inspiring all by his matchless 
play at fullback, and his superb generalship; who, at the climax 
of his career, died as he had lived, sacrificing himself to 
help others, the Athletic Section of The Loyolan is reverently 
and proudly dedicated by the staff.

REV. B. J. QUINN, S. J. 

Director of Athletics 

A new regime in athletics began at Loyola University when Father B. J. Quinn, 
S. J., assumed charge of the department of athletics last September. He brought with 
him a good technical knowledge of the major sports, an insight into the executive affairs 
of an athletic department, and a well established ability to make friends. All of these 
qualities were immediately apparent when active work was started. 

The schedule for the football and basketball teams was in great danger of languish- 
ing, but with the new director the schedules were soon in a formative state and then 
completed in competent fashion. Not satisfied with having the football and basket- 
ball cards for the 1927 season, he began negotiations for games on future schedules. 
This feature has not been given much attention in the past years, and its recognition by 
Father Quinn is a distinct step forward to better crowds, better games, and better athletic 
events in general. 

Through the entire football and basketball seasons Father Quinn sought a definite ob- 
jective which was to put the athletic department on a sound basis in the matter of policy. 
Various movements were developed, others banished and a few new policies initiated, 
and all blended into new and energetic efforts to establish the sports in a definite manner. 

The Tournament, too, received the attention of the new director. The seating 
capacity of the Gymnasium was increased and the dispatch with which the crowds and 
other matters were handles was the cause of much favorable comment from many people. 

Father Quinn has brought much to Loyola. He has given it a new view of athletics 
from an executive standpoint; he has made himself free to give his entire attention to the 
department, and this is decidely a distinct advantage. He has secured the cooperation 
and friendship of the officials and players alike and has united them into a strong or- 
ganization for the promotion of athletics. His many abilities and qualities are sure to 
bring the work that he has started so brilliantly to a definite and successful conclusion. 
He has given much to Loyola University and Loyola owes much to him. 
Page 206 



Physical Director 

The gentleman who is so prominent in every part of the 
Gym, whether it be the swimming pool, the handball courts or 
the basketball court is Earl Kearns. Kearns is in charge of 
the affairs of the Gymnasium with the title of Superintendent, 
Comptroller of Building, or what have you. He has become a 
conspicuous figure to the students of the University since last 
September when he was introduced to Loyola. 

He has a faculty for getting things into an organization 
that has proved to be valuable to the many that use the 
University Gynasium. The swimming tank and the rooms 
connected with it, were put under a new system by Father 
Quinn and Earl Kearns, and the improvements have been 
very apparent to all who frequent that part of the Gymnasium. 

The work with which he is connected is handled com- 
petently and with a placidity that astonishes the ladies who 
come to swim on "men's nights," and want to know why they can't. His manner to all 
is even and cheery and has brought him the friendship of all who go to the Gymnasium 
whether it be for the purchase of a delectable candy "bar," or for the business of bowling 
"a line," or to engage in the many sports which keep the Gymnasium a busy place. 


Publicity Manager 

When "Hilly" entered the University, there were great 
things awaiting him. Athletics, as well as the remainder of the 
activities were reaching proportions where a man of his 
capacity was in demand. It was only a short time before 
Harold made his debut in a career that Loyola will always 
recognize as that of a responsible, devoted and popular 
student. It was he who started the program of publicity 
that has ended in the present, efficient and invaluable instru- 
ment for the spreading of Loyola's fame. 

He did not confine his work, however. The Tournament 
introduced him to the opportunities for which his previous 
work had been fitting him. With two years of experience in 
such matters behind him, Harold took up the work on the 
Tournament this year, and is at present one of the main cogs 
in the intricate machinery that runs the Classic every year. 

Much of the success that has attended it in the past years is due in great part to the 
zealous attention Harold gave it. Any school is fortunate to number among its supporters 
a man of abilities and talent combined with the devotion and love that is Harold's.

Senior Manager 
Robert E. Morris completes his senior managership this 
year. With its close will come the end of his unassuming but 
competent reign of the athletic activities of the University. 
In time, Bob's sway in the Gymnasium was of a two-year 
duration ; in beneficial effects his presence in the senior manager 
office will be felt for some time. 

Bob Morris is unique in ways more than one. The tale 
of his part in athletics at Loyola in unique. 

In 1924, a year that will always be important because of 
the founding of the Tournament and the running of the 
Loyola Relays, Morris made his entry into the athletic office. 
Bob handled keys for a while and soon became such an 
essential member of that department that he was rewarded 
with the senior managership in 1926-1927. 

In his present capacity his personality combined with a 
genuine knack of making friends made him an important member of the athletic staff. 
The difficult task of assembling the football and basketball schedules was worked out by 
Father Quinn with much definite work and assistance from Bob. 

The first Tournament beheld him in another phase of his activities. His attention 
to detail combined with his power for work was not unnoticed. The Loyola Relays 
again saw him active, doing many things and doing them all well. 

In this, his last year, recognition of. his efforts was granted, not only by those who 
are associated with him in the intimate details of the athletic offices, but by the University 
in general. He became one of the luminaries of the North side campus and is, un- 
doubtedly, one of the best known and most popular men in the Arts department of the 


Junior Manager 

Donald Sutherland, who assisted Bob Morris in the 
athletic department this year, is to assume charge of the affairs 
next year as senior manager. Don has proved to be an able 
man by his work in the football season. In the basketball 
season, during which he acted as manager for one of the best 
teams Loyola has ever had, Sutherland showed ability in every 
possible way. 

This is the first year Don Sutherland has been actively 
connected with athletics at Loyola, but in that time he has 
acquired an intimate knowledge not only of basketball, but 
of football as well. During the tournament Sutherland 
proved to be willing and well qualified to undertake the 
many tasks which were assigned to him. 

The basketball schedule which was fortified with many 
strong teams was arranged by Sutherland and Morris. The 
schedule for the season next year promises to be as strong and will be an indication of the 
ability Sutherland possesses to secure drawing cards for the Loyola major sports. 

With Don holding down the senior managership, athletics at Loyola will be in good 
shape to continue upon a successful path. The schedules for the coming year should, 
under his management, become such that a good team has a good card of games. His 
personality should easily bring him into that easy relationship with the players and 
officials that make for cooperation and a prosperous athletic regime. 

Page 208 


Cheer Leader 

When red-headed, smiling Jimmy Hughes takes his mighty 
megaphone in hand the people that crowd the stands know that 
soon there is to be a yell either floating across the campus or shak- 
ing the rafters in the Gymnasium. First there is his inimitable 
voice sounding the yell to the various parts of the stands and then a 
dropping, a clanging megaphone that tells of a cheer that is about 
to begin. 

The gyrations which are as much a part of Hughes as is his red 
hair and smile have taken much favor with the crowds. He and Al 
Brown have teamed up into a pair of excellent, hard working cheer- 
leaders. Several new yells have come from their pens and the 
results, after teaching them to the crowd, have been quite pleasing. 

Jim has the knack of putting the people at ease and making 
them give their full attention to the very serious matter of urging 
on their team with much vocal power. In the heat of the games, 
his antics combined with those of his partner, relieved the tension of 

the crowd for the few seconds that are allotted in a time out. It matters little whether 
the score be for or against Loyola when it comes to getting volume out of the spectators. 
If Loyola is winning there is an expression of the victory, or if defeat seems imminent, 
encouragement provides the key-note. 

Hughes with his partner have been valuable in building up a cheering section. Much 
time has been given to details which will further that end, and to them, credit is due for 
the results which have been achieved. 


Cheer L e a d e r 

That lusty yell which floated over the bleacher 
embankments of the campus and the Cub's Park during the 
last football season was due to the efforts of one Al Brown, 
cheerleader. Al has the happy faculty of making the very 
staid people put a hand to their mouth and emit a whoop 
that would astonish them could they hear that sound alone. 
With hair that is highly polished and with a face that 
is pleasing to all of the feminine rooters especially, Al trots 
out as the teams come out of the dressing rooms and soon 
the spectators are cheering in unison with the gestures and 
antics that end in a leap into the ozone. Al and Jim Hughes 
alternate during the football and basketball seasons in 
drawing cheers from the crowd. Both of these men have 
made substantial attempts to organize the student body 
into a howling mob for those occasions that demand it. 
Teams this year have given the student cheering section 
something to cheer about and through the efforts of Brown 
and his cohorts the results emanating from that part of the stands have been better coor- 
dinated than has been the rule in the past. 

Brown's efforts have not been confined to the cheering department alone. He is 
active in many phases of work down in the Commerce School and has acquired a con- 
siderable reputation for being one of the "livewires" of the new Franklin Street depart-

Head Coach 

Some good news has come from the athlelic department recently to the effect that 
Coach Roger Kiley has affixed his signature to a new contract which will keep him at 
Loyola for some time in the position of Head Coach. This is welcome news for reasons 
more than one. 

In the first place it will give him more time to carry to a successful conclusion those 
policies which he started when he came to coach at Loyola. A definite system of develop- 
ing players was lacking when Roger Kiley came to take charge here, and now that one 
has been evolved by him it is the natural thing that he should derive the benefits of that 
system which are just now beginning to manifest themselves in very concrete forms. 
He is now able to have the assistance of men who have played under him and this will 
distinctly aid him in bringing new players to a correct knowledge of the sport. 

The football team of last year passed through a successful season when all matters 
are considered. Stronger teams were met than ever before. The decisions which were 
small were usually influenced by injured players and other adverse conditions. With a 
good squad of freshmen coming up, the reserve material of the team will be greatly 
augmented and Mr. Kiley will have enough men at his disposal so that a few injuries 
will not cripple the squad. 

Roger has done much for football at Loyola, and his services have not gone without 
appreciation. A new confidence was manifest when his services were requested for 
future years. The football men see in him all those things which athletics will develop 
under proper conditions. They give him the best of their abilities, the best of their 
knowledge of the game, and what is more, they play football under him with a spirit 
that makes for victorious seasons. The student body of the University has recognized 
him as a coach that can teach the game, and as a man that has caught their admiration 
with his personality. Roge is a part of the Loyola football team and after this term of 
years is up all will again request that he keep on turning out good teams and fine men 
such as he has turned out in the past years. The student body of Loyola University 
wishes him success for the coming seasons, and congratulates him upon the splendid work 
he has done in the past.

as a coach. 



Freshman Coach 

Edwin Berwick, frosh football coach, was the first Loyola 
man to coach at his alma mater. Berwick attended Loyola 
Academy, playing successfully with the prep team. His college 
football training began in his freshman year when he played 
center on the team. In his last two years at the University he 
played brilliant football at the pivot position becoming known 
as one of Loyola's best linemen. 

"Buck" was engaged this year to teach the frosh what he 
had learned in his years on the gridiron. He organized the first 
real freshman squad that battled regularly and fiercely against 
the Varsity. He drilled them in the plays of the opposition so 
that they could present them to the Varsity in scrimmage for 
the big games. 

Much of the material that will figure prominently in the 
lineups of the coming season was developed by Coach Berwick. 
A squad of thirty men was under his direction for the entire 
season and he will pass these on to the Varsity drill'ed in the 
Loyola style of play and filled with the fighting qualities that 
always distinguished Berwick when he was in the line for Loyola. 

In scouting the opposition Coach Berwick also proved 
himself valuable. Travelling into the camp of the team that was 
soon to be met in battle by the Varsity, Buck would come away 
with a clear account of their offense and defense. 

The freshman who played under Ed will testify to his worth 
For him they played eagerly and took a gleeful delight in handing the regulars 
new in the line of football, whenever that was possible. 



The gentleman whose picture is on the right is Stanley 
Walsh. In all probability there will be many to whom the name 
will be unfamiliar, unless it is stated that this Stanley Walsh 
is the well-known "Guv" Walsh, trainer, law student, and wit. 

Discarding the name by which he is never called we proceed 
to tell you more about him. When Roger Kiley came to Loyola 
athletics were still in a somewhat nebulous state, but with him 
came "Guv" Walsh, bringing with him an intimate knowledge 
of all things relative to the game of football: players, rules, and 
especially, men. Since that time "Guv" has been in power as 
the trainer and but recently has he been granted official recogni- 
tion with the coveted "L" initialled sweater. 

Walsh is a fixture at Loyola and without his presence on the 
bench with his little "black kit" and his "get going, fellows," 
the games would seem to lack something. 

He has proved many times that he is intensely loyal. He is 
a tireless worker, giving much and as'ing little; he will be re- 
membered long, not for his daubs of mercurochrome and appli- 
cations of zinc oxide tape, but for being witty, wise, friendly, 
faithful and helpful.

1926 Football Captain 

A brilliant leader who nobly carried on the traditions set by 
the great "Bud" Gorman, a marvelous end who dazzled the 
opposition time and again, a hero who fought unflinchingly 
despite the handicap of painful injuries, that is Dan Lamont. 
Dan, mentioned for All-Western honors in 1925, would undoubt- 
edly have excelled this rating last season had he been able to 
play out the entire schedule. As it was, he showed indomitable 
courage in the face of disheartening odds. Badly injured in that 
glorious struggle against Mississippi, and pronounced hopelessly 
out for the season, Dan showed the stuff of which he is made by 
coming back in defiance of orders and playing nobly against 
Arkansas. Then he made the New Orleans trip and for the sec- 
ond time the South took its toll, setting Dan down with an even 
more painful leg injury. Dan's gameness, coupled with his mar- 
velous playing ability, won the praise of every opposing coach, 
and many in number were those who called him "another Kiley." 

Dan just closed his third year on the Ramblers, during which 
time he was always a regular end and one of the undoubted stars 
of the team. It is hard to pick out high spots in Dan's career, 
his playing was always of such a uniformly high caliber. He bore his share in that 
great battle against Marquette in 1925, and was one of those most responsible for the 
humiliation of the Dayton Flyers and the Haskell Indians that year. His work in the 
games he was able to play in this year was even greater. 

Dan graduates this year, but he will not be lost to Loyola. The welcome news has 
just been issued that Dan will return next Fall as Assistant Coach, thus making an- 
other of Kiley's pupils to take up coaching under their old master. Certainly everyone 
is confident that Dan will make as great a record as a coach as he did as a player. 


Captain-Elect, 1927 
Eddie Johnson, who was the overwhelming 
choice of the squad to lead the Ramblers during 
the 1927 season, is undoubtedly the best quarter- 
back ever produced at Loyola. As a field general 
he has no equal, calling the plays with a precision 
that is sweet to any coach, and as a leader he has 
the knack of inspiring confidence and action 
into his men. Eddie acted as field captain 
last season when injuries forced Captain Dan to 
the sidelines and he handled the job so thorough- 
ly and convincingly that his election as captain 
for next season was well-nigh obvious. 

In addition to his splendid qualities of lead- 
ership, Eddie is a brilliant mechanical player. 
As a passer he has no equal, his bullet-like 
heaves being gall to many an opposing team. 
Johnson is an all-around athlete of excep- 
tional ability, being one of the mainstays of the 
track team. He is a deservedly popular ath- 
lete, and his many friends, as well as the entire 
student body, unite in wishing him the greatest 
success during his captaincy.

Loyola's difficult football season was officially opened 
against the formidable St. Viator College on a slow, slushy 
field. Dame Nature was not so kind to us. She permitted 
the steady fall of a drizzling rain, which prevented our boys 
from opening up their dangerous attack, and playing a 
stellar game. 

However, early in the first quarter Marty Griffin 
managed to go over the line for a touchdown. "Big Joe" 
Witry added' an extra point by his successful kick from 
placement. At the beginning of the next period our warriors 
seemed to have become accustomed to the weather and to 
the field. They commenced to execute plays with complete 
accuracy. Norton, Lawless and Adams constantly tore 
deep holes into the enemy's line, and each got away several 
times for substantial gains, while our forward wall stood the 
test of merciless attack as an impregnable defense. This 
superior work by the backs and the line soon gave us two 
more touchdowns, Adams and Griffin each carrying over 
the pigskin. Following Witry's attempted goal kick the 
half ended. Loyola was on the long end of a score 21 to 0. 

The Ramblers returned at the second half satisfied to 
play a defensive game. But the sloppy field brought penal- 
ties, which considerably helped to bring the pigskin closer 
to their goal. This assistance made possible St. Viator's 
only score, when May caught a beautiful 35 yard pass and 
safely carried it to a touchdown. An attempt to place kick 
failed. The game ended with the score of 21 to 6 in favor 
of Loyola. 






T H M A S 


Loyola's speedy running and accurate passing attack 
proved to be too much for St. Thomas College of St. Paul. 
This was the first real opportunity the men were given to 
open wide their bag of tricks. They swept down the field 
for two touchdowns before the Minnesota outfit knew 
that the game was on. 

The Ramblers got down to business right after the 
opening whistle and scored before the game was three 
minutes old. Jack Downs made the first score, racing 40 
yards after grabbing a 20 yard pass from Ed. Johnson. 
Downs, who played a spectacular game throughout, went 
over the goal line again in the second quarter. He had ten 
yards to travel, but Quarterback Johnson's well-directed 
pass made this gain comparatively easy. When St. Thomas 
saw the success of our aerial attack they, too, resorted to a 
passing game but with little accomplishment. Cronin 
intercepted a pass, and the ball changed hands. Short- 
ly before the half ended Downs ripped through tackle for 
the third Loyola touchdown. 

St. Thomas' defense stiffened in the second half and 
held the Ramblers scoreless until the closing minutes of 
play, when Marty Griffin and Norton started a march 
down the field. Griffin finally got away for a thirty yard 
run, going over with a touchdown. Witry again kicked 
goal bringing Loyola's total to 27, while St. Thomas' still 
remained 0. 

The chief ground gainers for Loyola were Downs, 
Griffin and Cronin, while in the line Capt. Lamont was the 
star performer assisted by Larry Flynn and Frank Gilmore. 




Battling under a southern sun that pushed the mercury 
up to 90, Loyola's Ramblers melted before the University of 
Mississippi at Oxford. The Ramblers, outweighed by the 
big southerners and hampered by a lack of reserve strength, 
fought bravely under the broiling sun, and it was not until 
the last three minutes of play that "Ole Miss" crashed over 
for the winning points. Loyola, early in the game, sacrificed 
two touchdowns, and another scoring opportunity due to 
over-anxiety. With the ball practically in the center 
of the field, Griffin skirted right end for a touchdown, but 
the play was called back and Loyola penalized for back- 
field in motion. On the next play Norton galloped around 
the other end and crossed the line, only to have the penalty 
repeated. Lawless then crashed thru center for thirty 
yards, but the referee again ruled out the play. That 
cured the Ramblers. A plunge by Lawless and a pass to 
Norton placed the ball on the thirty yard line, and from 
there Griffin carried it around the end and behind the ene- 
my's goal for the first score of the game. Witry's educated 
toe added one point. The second quarter saw Mississippi 
garner a touchdown by a series of line plunges, but the try 
for extra point failed and the half ended with Loyola 7, 
Mississippi 6. In the third quarter ground gaining was 
about even, but the Ramblers suffered an irreparable loss 
in the serious injury of Captain Lamont. The fourth 
period saw further casualties, Griffin and Ryan being inca- 
pacitated, and as the time wore on it became evident that 
the Ramblers, with their captain out and their strength 
sapped by the oppressive heat, were fast weakening. Mis- 
sissippi injected an array of fresh material and made a last 
desperate attempt which netted them the winning score. 


Page 218 



With a lineup that shifted "Smokey Joe" Witry to 
tackle and Frank Gilmore to center, Loyola played the 
Haskell Indians and lost 27 to 7. No more bitter contest 
could have ever been staged on a gridiron, for our boys 
fought steadily to overcome the obstacles that kept them 
from victory. The score is no indication of the battle. 
Only the superior weight of the Indians saved them from a 
merciless trimming, which Loyola showed at various 
times it could administer easily and effectively had she only 
been blessed with a little more poundage. Throughout 
the entire game the Indians showed no superior knowledge 
of football, nor the ability to play the game with real tact. 
They relied solely on their weight to force holes into our 
lines, and then, straight football to bring them victory. 

Loyola scored the first touchdown early in the first 
period on a beautifully executed forward pass, Johnson to 
"Ma" Norton. Witry kicked goal for the seventh point. 
Then came into prominence the Indians' weight, which so 
far our Irish grit had been able to withstand. It began 
to show its telling effects on the Devil Dogs. Nothing 
humanly possible could be done to avoid the Indians' 
steady march to the goal. In the second period they were 
able to work over a touchdown. With the assistance of an 
exchange of punts and a 15 yard penalty they scored again 
before the half. 

Loyola returned to the game the third quarter with 
renewed energy. They fought bitterly, but the Redskins 
still outweighed us fifteen pounds to a man, a sufficient 
extra poundage to beat the best of teams.

L YOLA 13 

A fast set of backs together with a superior knowledge 
of football gave Loyola a 13 to 6 victory over St. Louis. 
This was St. Louis' homecoming game, and they tried hard 
to win. They invoked every form of assistance possible: 
they even wore the Jersey the Cardinals had during their 
successful world series struggle. But it was not their lot 
to win, although several times they made advances which 
for a moment threatened to turn defeat into victory. In 
these crucial periods, Loyola's abundant resource of energy 
and practical knowledge of the game came forward to keep 
the enemy at a comfortable distance from the goal. 

Perhaps the outstanding feature of the game was the 
stubborn merciless charges of Joe Witry, who soon tore the 
right side of the Billiken line to pieces. Ma Norton and 
Phil Brennen by their brilliant offensive work share in the 
honors of the victory. When Marty Griffin refused to be 
taken off the field immediately after he was injured, he 
gave real evidence of the grit which Kiley has successfully 
instilled into his players. Griffin stayed in the game and 
fought until threatened with collapse. Credit must likewise 
be given to Captain Kahle of St. Louis, who too remained 
in the game despite the severe injuries he earlier received. 

The game started with the Billikens receiving the open- 
ing kickoff, and they returned the 20 yards to their own 30 
yard line. Beyond the first down, St. Louis could make 
no advance of real importance. Careful strategy on the 
part of our boys resulted in an exchange of points, in which 
Marty Griffin held the edge. The Billikens' weakness in 
this department soon showed up when their punts fell in 
the center of the field. Soon the determined plunges of 
Warton, Griffin and Cronin brought the pigskin within 


^^^^0imM^^^^i^M : i^wi^ ^^^^^^^^^^^BL 



St. Louis' 10 yard line. An end run by Warton gave Loyola 
its first touchdown. Joe Witry by kicking goal successfully 
added a point. 

In the second half the Billikens came back strong, 
but not strong enough to stop the determined onslaught 
of Loyola. A long pass from Johnson to Lawless netted 
us 30 yards, and put the ball in a scoring position. Tactful 
playing by our backfield gave Griffin the ball, who circled 
St. Louis' end and got away for the necessary 10 yards — 
and our second touchdown. Considerable punting followed 
on both sides, but to no particular advantage for either 

When during the fourth quarter Loyola saw that the 
game was won, she loosened up, by which St. Louis made 
their only tally. With the interception of one of our 
passes, the enemy received the pigskin. Shortly afterwards 
Kennedy of St. Louis made a getaway for 40 yards and a 
touchdown. After that she could do no more. Loyola 
was content to play a tight defensive game throughout 
the remainder of the period. Repeatedly she broke up the 
desperate Billiken passes. 

In this game St. Louis showed a stubborn defense and a 
general style of play greatly superior to that which charac- 
terized their earlier encounters and disastrous reverses. 
The Loyola team, on the other hand, was far from the form 
which dazzled Mississippi. The game was played under 
extremely unfavorable conditions, the field being heavy 
from a drizzling rain which fell intermittently throughout 
the entire afternoon. A good Homecoming crowd of about 
4,000 witnessed the game which was played at Sportsman's 

gi^^lii^^ ^ l^aHa^gsBEE^^^E^ ^ ^^M 


Playing on a field covered with ice and snow, Loyola 
defeated Arkansas Tech 7 to at Cubs Park. The severe 
cold weather made it impossible for the teams to work 
with ease. Penalties for holding, and fumbles were fre- 

The first quarter, which ended in a tie, was taken up 
by attempted line plays. They failed to materialize be- 
cause of insecure footing. Griffin and Overbey staged 
a punting duel, with the yardage in Loyola's favor. The 
second quarter was a repetition of the first, save for the few 
moments that Norton's 26 yard run gave rise to the possi- 
bility of a touchdown. A penalty for holding at a critical 
time, however, spoiled this chance. In the third period 
Tech received Loyola's kickoff on its own 65 yard line. 
Overbey hit our forward wall for two yards, but lost the 
pigskin on a wide end run, when Flynn recovered it for us. 
Norton then ran the ends for nine yards, with Lawless 
adding six more and the first down. Following this Griffin 
and Norton advanced the ball 3 more yards. Norton 
finally plunged over for a touch-down. Witry's successful 
kick from placement added a point. 

This ended the scoring for the day. Both teams tried 
ine plunges three times, and then punted. Towards the 
end of the final period, the southerners threatened, but a 
well executed recovery of a fumble by Gilmore brought the 
ball to Loyola and safety. Then Griffin was able to punt 
out of danger. 

Norton and Lawless starred in the backfield, while 
Capt. Lamont shared honors with Larry Flynn in the line. 
Overbey 's punting and Bushnaier's running were the high 
lights of Arkansas Tech. 





Playing the last game of their much traveled season, 
the Loyola University Ramblers went down to defeat before 
the Wolf Pack of its like named rival. The score, 40-14, 
gives no indication of the fierceness of the struggle or the 
evenness of the contesting elevens. 

The whole story of the game is contained in the four 
Chicago fumbles recovered by the alert Southern players 
and converted into touchdowns by them. 

The first half saw the downfall of the varsity. Playing 
a game that was practically as good as that of the Louisiana 
team, the northern backfield was stricken with an attack 
of fumbles. Ritchey recovered one and raced twenty yards 
for a Wolf touchdown. Bucky Moore, the "Dixie Flyer," 
raced around end for another after one of his linesmen had 
gathered in a loose ball. Gremillion, the Southern battering 
ram, plunged over for the first score of the Wolves and 
added another later in the half. The Ramblers offense was 
not altogether out of gear, bringing the ball into New Or- 
leans territory more than once. One march of the Ram- 
blers, in which passes were cleverly mixed with line smashes 
and end runs, ended only when Griffin broke through center 
for seven yards and a touchdown. The half ended 33-7 
with the Rebels ahead. 

The second half showed the two teams fighting as hard 
as ever, but with the Kiley machine clearly superior. 
Time after time the bullet passes of Johnson, the runs of 
Norton and Griffin and the plunges of Lawless brought them 
within striking distance. Whenever in real danger the 
Loyola of the South braced, but in the last period Griffin 
broke loose for twelve yards and another touchdown. 
Moore and the pack also marched down the field once more, 
Gremillion scoring the touchdown.

The adoption of the freshman rule at Loyola also meant the birth of the first fresh- 
man football squad. At the opening of the season about twenty aspiring newcomers 
reported to Coach Ed Berwick and although ineligible for varsity competition, they 
showed their spirit by falling in line and working every night for the entire season against 
the varsity. Later acquisitions brought the total number up to thirty. 

Big "Buck" Berwick, former star varsity center, was a real mentor to the team and, 
thanks to his constant drilling, Coach Kiley will have an abundance of seasoned ma- 
terial for his next year's campaign. There is every reason to expect that this opportunity 
offered the freshmen to learn football will result in the development of a number of new 
stars who would not otherwise have the chance. The fact that two of the varsity's 
greatest stars never played high school football is in itself a great argument for this. 

The freshman squad consisted of a number of former high school stars and of others 
who were having their first taste of the game. The youngsters learned the plays of future 
opponents and tried them out on the varsity almost every night. They were a scrappy 
aggregation and the regulars knew they were in a real scrimmage every time they met 
the frosh. 

At the end of the season, Edmund Gorman, star tackle, and a brother to the late 
"Bud," was elected captain of Loyola's first freshman team. Numeral sweaters were 
awarded to all the men who had played through the season. At spring practice the entire 
freshman squad reported for the varsity team, and prospects for many of them to become 
regulars during the 1927 season are bright.

Basketball Coach 

"Len" Sachs, the wizard coach, never more decisively demonstrated 
his claim to the title than during the last basketball season. With only 
four men back from his lastyear's squad, with a squad that never numbered 
more than eight men and was usually around six in number, with some 
wonderful material rendered unavailable because of the freshman rule, with 
every prospect tending toward the poorest season in Loyola history, Len 
took his apparently hopeless job — and turned out the greatest team in 
Loyola's annals. 

The success of the Ramblers on the basketball court has usually been 
marked, but never more than this year, and never with slimmer prospects. 
Almost all the credit for this is due to this great coach, this developer of 
champions. Sachs, himself a marvelous basketball player, has shown that 
rare quality of being able to impart into others his own knowledge of the 
game and his playing ability. His record as a high school coach speaks all 
too eloquently for itself. Perhaps the greatest proof of his wizardry as a 
coach lies in the fact that out of the five regulars of his "miracle team," only 
one was any sort of a skilled player before Sachs took him in hand. 

Besides his genius as a basketball coach, Sachs is an all-around coach 
and athlete of rare skill. He coached the track team to success this spring, 
while his work with the "prep" team has been little short of miraculous. 
Champions in football, basketball, track, baseball and swimming, that is 
what he has turned out. 

Loyola is proud of Len and his teams, and she looks forward with con- 
fidence to next year's basketball team. With his wizardy and the wonderful 
amount of seasoned material which will be available, the Ramblers ought to 
reach even greater heights.

Illr — 




The story of Loyola's basketball season for 1927 is one of 
which she may rightly be proud. Inaugurating the freshman 
rule this year, the squad was necessarily small, eight men only 
being carried throughout the season. Yet when the schedule 
was completed only four defeats were chalked up for the Ram- 
blers out of a total of seventeen games played. All four defeats 
were sustained on foreign floors during gruelling trips; two of the 
games were lost by single baskets; and throughout the whole 
season Loyola never failed to avenge a defeat in a return game. 
This excellent record, considering the scarcity of material and 
the caliber of the opposition, bespeaks a future for Loyola in 
basketball and is a tribute to the admirable work of Coach 
Sachs as well as a proof of sterling work by the men themselves. 
Captain Joe Witry led a polished quintet in the initial game 
of the season when they met the strong North Dakota Aggies. 
Coach Sach's men showed the result of the early call to practice 
and presented a new style of play. Fast deliberate passing with 
certainty and precision marked the new style. This method of 
attack completely unmettled the fast moving squad from the far Northwest, and try 
as they did, they were never able to overcome the lead united by the steady play of the 
Ramblers. Four of last year's men were in the starting line-up, with West as the only 
new man. Because of his size and ability, he readily fell in with Sach's zone defense and 
co-ordinated with Joe Witry in stopping the short-shots of the shifty opponents. Witry 
also proved to be a strong offensive man when he broke down the floor for two baskets. 
The final score 17 to 9 was very decisive considering the caliber of the opponents. 

On New Year's Eve the Ramblers met the Vanderbilt Commodores on the home 
floor. The Southerners came with an inflated reputation and a string of victories that 
included a decisive win over Marquette U. The Ramblers expected the best possible 
competition so they started their scoring early in the fray to make sure of victory. Brem- 
ner and Lawless tallied in the early minutes and dropped back to take their position in 
the score proof defensive. The score at the half was 12 to 4 in favor of the Ramblers. 
In the second period Sachs' men were more confident and set about to score. They broke 
through the Southern Champions' defense time and time again. Jim Bremner broke 
away for five baskets in this period to bring his total for the eve- 
ning to eight. Lawless and McGrath scored repeatedly while 
Witry and West were holding the Southerns. At the final whistle 
the score tallied Loyola 31, Vanderbilt 7. The followers were 
more than convinced that Coach Sachs had developed a winning 
combination after seeing this game. This defeat was the only 
thing that prevented Vanderbilt from claiming the National 
Basketball Title, as they later won the Championship of the 
south by defeating Georgia 46-44. 

The Ramblers annexed another victory when they humbled 
the Arkansas Aggies to the count of 37 to 7. In this game they 
held the enemy to two field goals. Hickey and Lawless tallied 
many times in the first half, while McGrath and Witry did their 
share of scoring in the second half. Although the Arkansas men 
were striving heroically from the opening whistle until the final 
gun, their effort was fruitless, for the zone defense held them at 
too great a distance from their object goal. McGrath, Smith 
and Lederer played a great floor game, while the scoring honors 


Page 230 

were divided between Hickey, Lawless and Witry. Final score, 
Loyola 37, Arkansas Aggies, 7. After this, Coach Sachs led his 
team on a trip through the Near East, where they sustained two 
of the toughest defeats on record. 

St. Xavier's proved a Waterloo for the Ramblers when minus 
the services of Bremner, they met them on the Cincinnati Ath- 
letic Club Floor. The slow, deliberate play of the Chicago squad 
was handicapped by the small floor but nevertheless they played 
a brilliant game. The score at the half stood, Loyola 14, St. 
Xavier, 6. Lawless and Hickey strengthened the score early in 
the second half with a basket apiece, but these were the last 
tallies the Ramblers were able to make until the score stood 19-19. 
When McGrath scored a field goal with a few seconds to go 
Loyola was confident, but Kelly of Xaviers retaliated with two 
long shots in the final minute to win for the Ohioans. Score, 
23 to 21. Lawless scored five field goals for Loyola and played 
an excellent floor game. Many coaches of the middle-west wit- Lawless 

nessed the game, which may account for the honor bestowed on 
Lawless when the mythical All-Western team was picked. 

In one of the best defensive cage games ever witnessed on the Detroit floor, the 
Ramblers outscored the Detroit University five, 13 to 8. Each team was more than 
cautious, and at the half the score was 2 to 2. Dowd and Shanahan, the two Detroit 
guards, that received such fine comment from the critics for their play against Notre 
Dame, continued to prove themselves worthy of the honor. They held the Ramblers 
until the second half when they were forced to foul to stop Lawless and West. McGrath 
broke through in the second period to score while the Loyola defense grew stronger and 
stronger as the game progressed. The encounter was a pitting of two strong defensive 
teams, each employing a different style of play. Detroit used the man for man, while 
Sachs' men employed the zone defense. Witry and West were towers of strength for 
Loyola, while McGrath, Lawless and Hickey maneuvered with the ball in a command- 
ing way. Final score, Loyola 13, Detroit, 8. 

On the third night of the eastern trip St. Mary of Orchard Lake handed the Ram- 
blers a heart-breaking defeat, when they scored in the last minute to win 23 to 22. The 
Ramblers appeared weary after their two hard games in two distant cities and found 
themselves losing, 12 to 9, at the half. Stungas, forward on St. Mary, scored four times 
in the first period with one handed shots. The Ramblers came back with the usual flash 
in the second half and gained the lead with a minute to go, 22 
^^ to 21. With twenty seconds to go, a St. Mary player was 

awarded a free throw. He missed and a Loyola man knocked 
the ball off-sides. A pass was given to Stungas and he shot from 
an angle past the center of the floor. As the ball dropped through 
the net the gun went off. Due to an error on the part of the time- 
keeper, the ball was put in play for four more seconds, but 
Loyola was unable to count. Lawless, McGrath and Witry 
shared in the scoring honors. 
I : ifei St. Viator, Inter-state Champions, offered one of the noblest 

IT' if attempts viewed on the home floor to down the Varsity. West 

mF rose to the occasion and did much to subdue the Irish. His 

W jjf work gave his teammates an early lead that the Irish overcame 

|b^Mari|npr only once during the battle. Bowe and Benda of the Viatorians 

^fO^^^^^~ merited the lead for the Inter-staters, when they registered some 

beautiful shots early in the second half. West recovered the 
Bremner advantage with a timely short shot and a free throw. The 

entire Loyola team played like masters and at no time did they 

Page 231 


ia^^^g^^g^EEBEB^g^B^ ^ ■ m3m$&mmmz$&m$m Hffiz 

look like the second choice. Lawless did well against Benda, 
an All-State man, as did Bremner against Dahlrymple, another 
selection for the same mythical quintet. McGrath took part 
in the scoring, while Witry commanded the defense. The final 
whistle found Loyola on the long end of a 14 to 13 score. 

Another victory was added to the string of wins when the 
Ramblers downed St. Thomas, and thereby kept the slate of 
home games un marred. The team play was again exceptional 
and the defense strong. Petersen, a luminary of their last year 
team, set about to guard Lawless, but had more to worry him 
than is allotted an average guard. Bremner shared the scoring 
honors with Lawless, as the trio of McGrath, Lawless and 
Bremner successfully worked the ball into scoring range. Witry 
and West kept the ball well away from the St. Thomas goal at 
all times. The baskets that the northerners did register were 
McGr\th tossed from a great distance. Johnson did the major portion of 

the scoring for St. Thomas aided by the clever passing of Peter- 
sen. The final count stood, Loyola 27, St. Thomas 11. 
For the second time in the same season Detroit bowed to Loyola, this time by the 
score of 17 to 14. The offense of Witry and his team proved a trifle stronger against 
Detroit this time as they managed to count seventeen points, while their opponents were 
registering fourteen. McGrath and West did a large amount of tallying, while Lawless, 
Witry and Bremner were playing a masterly floor game. Although the score was larger 
in the second game it was another match of defenses, with the Chicago men stronger than 
the losers on offense. 

Sachs' men set what is considered a world's inter-collegiate record when they won 
over St. Mary of Winona, Minnesota, 40 to 4. The Ramblers held them to one field goal, 
and scored ten times as many points. Each member of the Loyola squad scored at least 
one pojnt. McGrath, Bremner, Lawless and Witry did the greater part of the counting, 
passing down the floor to tally almost at will. The superior play of the victors caused 
the northern coach to say, "Loyola has one of the best college teams I have ever seen on a 
basketball floor." 

Not to be outdone by the football squad the Maroon and Gold basketeers next 
defeated the Billikens 36 to 6. The St. Louis team was not the team of yore and offered 
no such opposition as the machine of '25-'26. Captain Witry started the team on their 
victory with an early basket. Lawless and Bremner, however, received the honors for 
tallying. They started their scoring in the second half after Mc- 
Grath had started the scoring rally, by counting two on passes 
from Lawless and Hickey. Smith and Witry did much on de- 
fense, holding the Billikens' baskets well scattered. 

The Ramblers had their revenge for the one basket defeat 
given them at Cincinnati when they downed St.Xavier's 19 to 17 
to win the last game to be played on the home court. The two 
teams were evenly matched and the game was interesting from 
the start. As had been the custom the home team went into the 
lead early in the fray, only to be threatened in the closing minutes 
of play. The Musketeers tried to stage a comeback as they had 
done in Ohio, but Witry and his men were prepared. For the 
closing minutes of play they handled the ball with such care that 
the last minute effort of the Ohioans was futile. This victory 
gave Sachs' men the distinction of never bowing todefeaton their 
own floor during the entire season. Five terrific games on the 
road completed the season and added two more heartbreaking 
defeats to the total.

In one of the loosest games of the season Sachs' quintet de- 
feated Milwaukee State Normal in Milwaukee 35 to 34. The 
defense of the Ramblers was by no means weak, but due to the 
small floor the Teachers were able to register from the center of 
the floor. They had exceptionally good eyes and more than 
worried the Loyola rooters in the early minutes of play. When 
McGrath, Bremner and Lawless began hitting on their shots 
the score became more even and at the half the Chicagoans 
possessed the lead. The teachers gained the advantage with 
a minute to go, but McGrath tied it up with two excellent 
throws. A free throw by Hickey brought the score 35 to 34. As 
the whistle blew the Teachers' captain was awarded a free throw. 
When he failed the game ended, but Milwaukee had the honor 
of scoring more points against the Ramblers than any other team. Smith 

St. Thomas surprised the Ramblers and defeated them in 
St. Paul 23 to 16. Sachs' men were not expecting such a recep- 
tion and did not awake to the ability of the opposition until it was too late. The Minn- 
esota men were hitting exceptionally well on their shots registering them from every 
angle. Lawless played a brilliant game but his teammates, save Witry and West, were 
too light to withstand the abuse meted out to them. St. Thomas held the lead at the 
half and never lost it, although they were threatened many times. 

The second St. Mary game was much a repetition of the first, and with Lawless 
and Bremner again leading the scoring the Ramblers copped, 39-14. In this game each 
member of the squad counted a basket. The St. Mary team improved their offense to 
such a degree that they tallied five baskets as compared with the one of the previous 
battle. West played a brilliant game and scored two baskets as did Hickey. McGrath's 
passing was a feature, while Smith and Witry turned in a great defensive game. 

In one of the best games of the basketball year St. Viator trimmed the Ramblers 
in the New Viator gymnasium 28 to 23. The Chicago squad were leading at the half 
13 to 7, due to the work of Lawless and McGrath. Early in the second period the Irish 
started their march to victory when Dahlrymple placed two 
through the net from an angle. Benda followed with a shot 
from the center of the floor to give the Inter-staters the lead. 
Lawless started a rally but Evard broke through to score three 
times. A basket by Bremner and one by Hickey brought the 
Ramblers into close range again, but the Irish played with the 
ball until the whistle blew. 

Captain Witry led his squad to victory in the last game of 
the year, when they won over St. Louis the second time 19 to 
11. Lawless, Bremner and McGrath did the scoring while 
Witry, Hickey and Smith played well on defense. The Ram- 
blers' machine looked weary after the trip and did not display 
the basketball they were capable of. In the second half they 
strengthened their lead and maneuvered with the ball until 
Lederer the whistle terminated the game and a successful season.

The Freshman Basketball Squad 


When Loyola adopted the freshman rule last Fall, she did not restrict it to football, 
but made it equally applicable to the great winter sport of the colleges, basketball. This 
was a courageous move in the face of the splendid Freshman material available for the 
cage sport, and the apparent dearth of men for the varsity, but the success of the season 
despite all gloomy forebodings proved the soundness of this policy. 

The call for candidates was well answered by freshmen, and when they found them- 
selves ineligible for varsity competition, they showed their high caliber of spirit by signing 
up with the freshman squad and working out against the regulars all season. About 
fifteen men were out at various times during the year, and the high caliber of the men 
made scrimmage an unpleasant task for the "big boys." The frosh played scrappy 
basketball throughout the season, and, under the great teaching of Coach Sachs, who had 
already schooled several of them in prep circles, some really brilliant players developed 
from the squad. 

The lineup most often used against the varsity was Harry McDonough and Bob 
Burke at forwards. Charley Murphy at center, and Fred Sextro and Joe Lyons at guards. 
This arrangement was altered often during the season and every man who tried out was 
given a splendid chance to learn basketball under a great coach. 

The frosh were given a chance to show their wares against Lake Forest College, but, 
after a hectic game, dropped a close battle. At the end of the season they were entered 
in the Central A. A. U. Tournament, and, minus their scoring ace, Murphy, they made 
a very commendable showing. With these men available next year, almost boundless 
possibilities are open for the Rambler basketeers.

St. Patrick's Day witnessed the opening of the fourth and great" 
est National Catholic Basketball Tourney at Loyola. Teams came 
from all parts of the country to compete for the beautiful Cardinal's 
Cup, the symbol ot supremacy among Catholic High Schools all over 
the land. The immense proportions to which the tournament has 
expanded, was evidenced by the fact that local tournaments had to 
be conducted in certain sections, to determine entrants to the Nation- 
al Tournament. 

The management this year was practically the same as formerly, 
except that Fr. B. J. Quinn, S. J., the University Athletic Director, 
succeeded Fr. Burns as Faculty Director. Mr. Edward Krupka, Mr. 
John T. Dempey, Jr., and Mr. Joseph Gauer were all back at their re- 
spective posts. Ed. Krupka, with the assistance of Bob Morris and Harold Hillenbrand, 
took care of the lining-up of prospective entrants, while Roger Kiley, the football coach, 
and Len Sachs, the Basketball coach, supervised the actual play. 

Mr. John T. Dempsey headed the reception committee, consisting of Messrs. Joseph 
Gauer, Maurice Walsh, and Harold Hillenbrand. Mr. Dempsey secured the Lott 
Hotels for the headquarters of the teams, a fleet of busses was hired to transport the 
squads from there to the gymnasium. 

As is the time honored tradition, the visiting athletes were the guests of the Uni- 
versity while in the city; and the task of making the boys feel at home and happy was 
greatly facilitated by the active help of the Blue Key Fraternity, which, under the direc- 
tion of its athletic committee, met the young visitors at the stations, introduced them to 
Chicago and Loyola, saw to their wants, and, in general, ministered to their comfort 
and well-being in every way possible. 

The opening day was featured by the exceptional number of socalled "up-sets," 
many of which were caused, no doubt, by the "stage fright," occasioned by the immence 
size of the gym, and the large number of spectators. By this, however, we do not mean

that the games lacked interest, or that the playing was poor. The 
tournament was characterized throughout by the vigor and fight, as 
well as the fine playing of the contestants. The undivided attention 
of the crowd was held even in this first round by the startling meth- 
ods of attack employed. Eastern basketball especially was ably dem- 
onstrated by the squads from New York and Pennsylvania. Many 
of the contests went into overtime periods, one in particular requir- 
ing three extra periods of five minutes each to decide the winner. 

The teams that entered the semi-finals were De LaSalle of Joliet, 
111., Holy Rosary of Syracuse, N. Y., St. Xavier of Louisville, Ky., 
and Roman Catholic of Philadelphia, Pa. On Sunday afternoon, 
De La Salle defeated Holy Rosary in a sensational triple overtime 
period game by a score of 29-27. In the other semi-final game, Roman Catholic beat St. 
Xavier 22-16. 

The final game Sunday night was attended by the largest crowd that ever clung to 
the rafters of the Loyola Gymnasium. All reserved tickets were sold before the Friday 
preceding the final contest, and the general admission seats were filled almost an hour 
before the first game of the evening began. 

As to the championship game itself, for the first few minutes of play it looked as if 
the Cardinal's Cup would go east for the first time. The Roman Catholic boys started 
off with a bang, and dropped a basket in the first few minutes. Then the lads of Joliet 
started an attack which carried them to an easy victory over their Quaker state oppo- 

Joliet, after it had taken the first few minutes to find its stride, was clearly the better 
of the two teams. Its passing was faster, its guarding closer and its shooting more 
accurate. Early in the first quarter it took the lead and it was never seriously threatened 
by the eastern quintet. At the half it was out in front 11 to 3, mainly due to the efforts

of Waesco and Colona. The perfect teamwork and rapid fire passing 
of the prison city five opened numerous holes in the Roman Cath- 
olic defense and De La Salle took advantage of all its openings. The 
Philadelphia team, on the other hand, worked the ball into scoring 
territory time after time, but was unable to get it through the hoop. 
The second half was a repetition of the first, with the clockwork

^■LjUfciffl basket. As the game continued the mental and physical alertness of 

Ik ua 4*J foliel was more marked and they were scoring rapidly al the close oi 

the game. The final score was Joliet 26, Roman Catholic 11. 
JohnT. Dempsey In the preliminaries, Holy Rosary won third place from St. 

Xavier in the last quarter by 21-15. 
The Cardinal's cup was presented to the Joliet aggregation by His Eminence Cardinal 
Mundelein. The national champions also acquired the Mayor Dever trophy as the Illi- 
nois team remaining the longest in the race, and placed their star center on the all-tourna- 
ment team. A mounted gold basketball was donated to the winners as a permanent prize. 
Roman Catholic of Philadelphia, Pa., received the mounted gold-plated basket-ball, 
symbolic of second place. In addition this team acquired the Sears-Roebuck trophy for 
being the best coached team in the tournament; and also was awarded the Lott Hotels 
trophy for overcoming the greatest handicap in the second half. The winning of this was 
due to the marvelous exhibition which they gave to win a game that they were losing, 
at the half, by a score of 13 to 5. 

It was the injection into the game of Captain Tom Connolly that inspired the Phila- 
delphia team to such a great success. And incidentally, it was his work in this fray that 
attracted the committee of awards to pick him as the most valuable player to his team. 
A recognition that carries with it the Jack Schaack trophy. 

St. Mel won the W. H. Powell cup for scoring the highest number of points in the 
first round, winning from Richardton, N. D., by a score of 57 to 8. St. Peter High got the 
trophy for making the least number of fouls.

Third Place Winners 

The sportsmanship trophy went to De La Salle of Cumberland, 
Maryland, a team that throughout the length of the four days off- 
play, displayed the greatest gameness in play, and the finest gentle- 
manliness in conduct. In fact, courtesy of behaviour and good sports- 
manship under fire were, in no wise, restricted to one team. These 
have come to be the hallmarks of a tournament man; so much so, 
that the sportsmanship trophy is now considered next in desirabil- 
ity to the Cardinal's cup itself, and the award of it a highly coveted 
honor. Competition for this prize has brought about a spirit of ri- 
valry among the various groups of contestants as to which shall be the 
most gentlemanly, not only on the playing floor, but in the hotels, 
on the busses, elevated trains, and in the streets. Judges observe 
the men under all conditions, and award the trophy on the basis of their 
general behavior. In this way the visiting athletes are set an incentive to practice those 
ideals of upright and steady young manhood which it is the purpose of every Catholic 
high school throughout the land to instill. 

The feature of the final night was the selection of the All Tournament Team, which 
was to comprise the judges' estimate of the five best athletes (in their respective posi- 
tions) of the tournament. The star team thus picked was as follows: 

Holman, of Catholic High, Washington, Ind., Right Forward; Meyers, of Catholic 
High, Decatur, Ind., Left Forward; Waesco, of De La Salle High School, Joliet, 111., 
Center; Conley, of Roman Catholic High, Philadelphia, Penn., Right Guard; Diamond, 
of Most Holy Rosary, Syracuse, N. Y., Left Guard. 

And so the 1927 National Catholic Interscholastic Basketball Tournament passed 
into the realm of history. It was the fourth and greatest of a series of great tourneys; it 
gladdened equally the producers, the participants and the observers; yet perhaps there 
is none whom it pleased quite so well as Father Quinn, Director of Athletics, under whose 
guiding hand it flowered into the triumph it was. WILLIAM COLOHAN.

Track, the newest form of athletics to 
receive the attention of Loyola Athletic 
officials, has a future at Loyola which is 
bright in the extreme. Track is one of the 
fastest-growing collegiate sports, and while 
it does not yet command the attendance of 
football, or even basketball, it is perhaps 
the most advantageous of all these sports, 
i ^MPl t '' ' s a s P or * m which men ol ever} type of 
j .* : z<&00^ *? ■' ability m.i\ compete, and calls for an all- 
■ 'j^Mp!^ ■.'■ ■?!<•*■'•»• around development of material in every 
possible way. It is a clean, healthy sport, 
Lowerey anc j ^ ag none f the commercialized aspects 

which have tainted some of the other lines 
of college athletic endeavor. Consequently 
it is growing rapidly in public favor. The great and ever-growing popularity of such 
meets as the Drake and Penn Relays, the Marquette High School Relays, and the success 
of the Loyola Relays of two years ago, shows that the public is beginning to appreciate 
track and that this sport has a great future. 

Track at Loyola was first started two years ago. The team was very inexperienced 
and was handicapped by a lack of proper facilities; still, despite these draw-backs; it 
made a creditable showing and, at the Loyola Relays, the half-mile relay team won one 
of the trophies by defeating St. Louis in a special match race. Last year, with little to 
encourage it, the sport was permitted to drop, and was, to all appearances, dead. 

But this year the authorities saw the great place that track is taking in almost 
every college in the country and announced that track would be resumed. Just what 
they expected is unknown, but the quality of the material was astounding. Track is 
to be developed at Loyola, but it is to be developed properly, with no forcing and no 
mushroom sprouting. The policy of the athletic department of the University is to 
establish this sport on a firm foundation, with an eye to ranking it, in years to come, 

as a major sport, together with football and 

basketball. The squad were young, but, 

regardless of their youth, the class ot ability 

demonstrated and the possibilities opened 

up, were far beyond expectation. 

There is every reason to believe that 
track will develop faster than other ath- 
letics, especially football. Loyola is ideally 
located, being in Chicago, and her Chicago 
location could hardly be better for this 
purpose. At present, facilities have been 
considerably improved, but it is the an- 
nounced plan of the management to make 
them even better, in order that Loyola 
may rank with any university in this line. 


In accordance with the policy of track 
development outlined by the new athletic 


Page 242 




administration, will come the great work 

of encouraging high school athletics. The 

wonder! ul results accomplished by the 

National Catholic Basketball Tournament 

are an indication ot what may be done in 

this realm. This policy is to be extended 

to track, not abruptly, as was done with 

basketball but more gradually and with an 

eye to steady rather than to phenomenal 

growth. The first step in that direction 

will be the holding, under the auspices of 

Loyola University, of the annual Chicago 

Catholic League track meet on Loyola 

field. That this will lead to even greater 

things in the future no one can doubt. The 
success achieved by Loyola in her one experiment with high school athletics has 
made clear the fact that there is a real field ready to be developed. 

The development of intra-mural track is another step in the growth of this 
sport which ought to be realized next year. With interclass and departmental 
leagues in basketball, bowling, and indoor baseball so successful, there is no reason 
why a strong system of intra-mural track meets cannot be built up. Already plans 
for this have been laid, and it is the hope ot the staff that they are carried to a 
full completion. 

The team itself unearthed a splendid array of stars, but it was handicapped by 
the small number of men out for the various events. Those entering were good enough 
to win almost every time, but the team needed more men to balance the squad. When 
meeting opponents it was usually able to run up a string of firsts in the various events, 
but it lost on places. It is hoped that next season the squad will be larger, and there 
is every reason to believe that it will be. In Len Sachs the varsity has a coach second 
to no one in this line, a man with a long string of high school champions behind him, 
who has developed countless stars, whose team at Loyola Academy, in fact, has never 
failed to win the Chicago Catholic League championship. 

Sachs lent his efforts to the varsity 
this year and the results of his coaching 
were soon apparent. Among the stars 
who were unearthed and who were either 
taught, or at least greatly aided, by him, 
were Eddie Johnson in the hurdles and 
sprints, Jack Carey in the sprints, Jack 
Lowerey in the mile, Cos Garvy, three time 
Catholic League champion, in the pole 
vault, Vincenti in the shot put, Kaveney 
in the half mile, Bremner in the high and 
broad jumps, Kearney and Home in the 
middle distances and Tomaso in the 

The team will face its toughest com- 
petition of the season on June 4, when 
several of the men will be sent to Michigan 
State to compete against Michigan State, 
Marquette, Butler, and Notre Dame. Tomaso

After two years of only mediocre 
success the tennis team of this year faces 
its longest and most difficult schedule with 
**^<. only a few veterans from last year but with 

fe ' -W , ^^> the greatest wealth of material in the his- 
-— *^Z"' tory of Loyola. All of the men on the first 

team last year were lost this season and it 
was necessary to start from scratch in 
building up the squad. 

The call for candidates brought out 
over fifteen men, most of whom were ex- 
perienced and able racquet wielders. At 
the present time it seems as though Lars 
Lundgoot, Paul Lietz, Herbert Kramps, 
Edward Bremner, Harold Prendergast 
and Dave Barry will form the nucleus of 
the squad although it is quite possible that some of the other men will see action before 
the close of the season. Whatever the outcome this year it is sure that we have the 
material at hand for a championship tennis team and that, with the experience gained 
this year, a great record will be established in 1928. 

The adoption of a permanent ranking for the team and for the University as a 
whole is expected to stimulate a great deal of interest in tennis at Loyola. Under this 
system all those active in tennis here will be ranked according to their records. Those 
who wish to raise their ranking are allowed to challenge those above them. All students, 
in every department, are eligible to compete. In time it is hoped to have at least fifty 
players placed under this system. The constant competition is expected to provide 
practice and experience to those on the team and develop and uncover material for the 

After completing half its schedule the team has shown that it will probably fulfill 
all early hopes. Although the first two matches, with Lewis Institute and Marquette, 
were lost, the team has then struck its stride and has not been defeated since. 
Tie matches were played with Lake Forest and Wheaton Colleges, and the team from 

De Paul was practically annihilated by the 

Varsity. Steady rains have made the post- 
ponement of several matches necessary 

and has interferred with regular practice. 

With the steady improvement that has 

been shown so far the team expects to do 

far better in the remainder of its schedule. 

It is certain that it will set the best tennis 

record in the last few years. In all, twelve 

matches with the foremost teams in the 

Middle West will be played. If a majority 

of them are won it will place Loyola among 

the leaders in this coming collegiate sport. 

The meet with Notre Dame, to be played 

on Ascension Thursday, will decide whether 

the season is to be regarded as an unquali- 
fied success. Prendergast

Last fall the Loyola News conducted the second annual tennis tournament, with entries 
from all departments. Over forty students took part and three departments were repre- 
sented in the semi-finals. John Coffey of Law defeated Lundgoot of Medicine to enter 
the finals. Hogan of the Arts College defeated Melody to enter the finals and then 
defeated Coffey for the school championship. 

The success of the tournament showed definitely that the students of Loyola are 
seriously interested in tennis as a sport. It also made it certain that the tournament will 
be made an annual affair. Emmet Hogan, who won the championship of the University 
in this event, was lost to the team through ill health. Hogan was captain of the net men 
during the season of 1926 and was undoubtedly the best courtman ever developed at 
Loyola. His absence in the last season was keenly felt. His return next year will add 
to the strength of what will be undoubtedly the strongest team in the history of Loyola. 
The men who tried out for the team this year and failed to qualify will undoubtedly 
have an opportunity to show their skill in action with Hogan and the other veterans who 
will return for another season. There certainly was plenty of superior material on hand 
to keep in trim during this spring training period, and the men who failed to qualify for 
the varsity squad only missed because there were too many excellent players, and some 
had to drop out in order to limit the team to the required six men. 

The team this year is bound to be popular in net circles by the time their season is 
finished late in June. Up to the present time they have shown that they possess every 
qualification that could possibly be desired in tennis experts. They are fast thinkers, 
playing the ball with enviable speed and precision; they are powerful drivers, cutting 
up the corners of the courts with smashing 
returns that bounce very low and dig cav- 
erns in the clay; they have cannon ball 
serves, placing them on the back-hand 
shots of their opponents and all but cinch- 
ing a win with a single stab. Above all they 
display a high grade of sportsmanship that 
has made them welcome and wanted on 
practically every court in the country. 
They have been cheerful in defeat, the first 
to congratulate a man after he has shown 
himself a victor. They have been consid- 
erate in victory, never taking advantage of 
their wins to depreciate the value of their

Golf has now gained prominence at Loyola as a recognized 
sport and in return for this recognition it will with the coming 
years give to Loyola as much publicity as any other sport which 
Loyola now supports. After all is said and done it is publicity 
that all college sports aim to bring the school, in order that the 
school may be better known and the better known the school 
is the more students it draws. With more students being educated 
yearly, the school has a better chance to turn out more scholars 
who shall rise to prominent heights in the intellectual world; and 
in this manner raise the standards of Loyola high in the intellec- 
tual circles as well as in the athletic sphere. 

Golf at Loyola is just at the point where it requires only the 
united support of the student body to make Loyola's team as 
good as any team in the middle west. 

The men out for the team are equally as good if not better 
than the average college golfer. It is the sole determination of 
these men to defeat any contenders for honors on the links that they may encounter 
during the season of 1927. 

Golf is not merely a game of luck but it is a game of skill and precision; it teaches 
the men to be exact, for the misplacement of a drive or a putt or any other shot for that 
matter, will give the opponent at once the upper hand in the battle. 

-Then there is the question of training which is so often brought up by the opponents 
of college golf. They say that a person who plays golf does not have to train as a person 
who plays football or some other such form of athletics. But this is by far a mistaken 
version of the matter, for a golfer must practice every day if he wishes to be precise in all 
his shots. Then, too, in order to play a golf match the person must be in as good a phys- 
ical condition as the best football player. If you stop to consider you will realize at a 
glance that your physical condition controls your mental status and this is the very 
thing that a golfer must watch. He must at all times keep his mind 
clear and cool and although at some time or other he may appear 
defeated he must be able to pull himself to- 
gether and fight an uphill battle to turn what 
might be termed a defeat into a victory. 

Although the team of '26 did all in its 
power to place golf where it belongs in the 
field of athletics at Loyola we expect the 
team of '27 to far outshine the work of all 
the previous years, and to make the season 
of 1927 the banner season of them all and one 
hard for any loyal son of Loyola to forget. 
The team of '26 under the leadership 
of Capt. Henry Remien (now manager of 
the team of '27), scored 44 points to its D'Esposito 

Page 246 

wmrnm$ $fm$&m&& mm$® ;i 

^ ^m Mttmmm^&%txm$&$ 

opponents 56, which taking all things into consideration was by 
no means a poor showing for only the second year of recognized 
golf at Loyola and for most of the players their first experience at 
match play. The team of '26 was to be the crisis of golf to be or not 
to be at Loyola; and it was therefore the main object of this team 
to win over Fr. Agnew, S. J., and the director of athletics to look at 
golf as a university sport in a favorable manner. This we can feel 
certain, due to the favorable reaction by both, was readily accomp- 
lished. It now remains to the team of '27 to prove to these same 
parties that Loyola can put forth a team which will rival the best 
that there is; and this you can be sure they will do. The team of 
'27 will be composed of such men as Capt. Jerry O'Neill, and 
Emmett Morrissey of the team of '26, Lee Bradburn, Josh Sextro 

D'Esposito, and Fred Sextro, all of Academy fame, Ellidare Pat- 
naude of the dental school and also a member of last year's team, 

John Devine, and a few more likely candidates for the team which as yet are unknown. 
The schedule this year includes such teams as Notre Dame, Armour, Marquette, Carroll, 
and Crane College, all of which boast of having very fine teams. As you all know only 
too well, the Loyolan goes to press before the golf season is completed, and hence the big 
boost which the University will (and has) received by virtue of the sterling battles of their 
redoubtable golfers cannot be fully recorded in the unsurpassable 1927 Year Book. How- 
ever, the season got pretty far under way before the dead-line and henceforth the mana- 
ger is highly gratified to report on the early efforts and victories of this greatest of sea- 
sons. The prime turmoil was against Armour Tech. During the early morning round 
the pantalooned Maroon et Gold representatives assumed a lead of 6-4 but something 
slipped in the course of the afternoon and your plucky battlers were nosed out by a paltry 
couple of points. The formidable Notre Dame aggregation was met next. They are 
every bit better than their famed grid iron teams with the result that Captain O'Neill and 
his loyal Loyola mates were set down somewhat hard, about 15-8 to be exact. Neverthe- 
less, undaunted by these early season reversals the aggregation showed their gumption 
by trimming an all-star Marquette team by a 10-9 score in Chicago, and repeated with a 
decisive 15-8 victory in Milwaukee. Games with Carroll College and Crane College 

remain to be played and if the "ole reliables," O'Neill, Morrissey, 

Bradburn, D'Esposito and the others, play 

in these matches like they shot golf against 

Marquette, don't worry but that a real 

Roman victory will rest on the Chicago's 

great University, Loyola to be sure, stan- 

However it the student body cheer up 

the fellows who are behind golf when they 

meet them on the campus, and if possible 

come out to some of the games which will 

be played at Big Oaks Golf Course, the fel- 
lows on the team assure you that they will 

do all in their power to keep Loyola on top 

in golf as it is in every other form of athletic 

and scholastic endeavors which it enters 
Devine into. F. HENRY REMIEN.

In the first year of its existence, the Arts and Sciences Bowling 
league excited exceptional interest and commanded the attention of 
the entire University. 

Although a bowling league is a novelty in college sports, the men 
of the North Campus took to the new activity immediately after its or- 
ganization by J. Francis Walsh, a Sophomore Arts student. The teams 
that competed were formed by the various classes and fraternities, 
thus representing practically every division of the department. About 
thirty or forty men, comprising six full squads, were active during the 
two months of play. 

The Freshmen Commerce aggregation, composed of Fred Sextro, 
Bob Burke, Charley Murphy, Matt Lear, and Neal McAuliffe, were 
the fiery wood-choppers of the league. They succeeded in running 
; of games without a defeat until they met the formidable Pi 
quad late in the season. This forced them down to second place, 

through a strin 

Alpha Lambda i 

but they kept piling up their strikes and spares so fast that they merited a return 

game with the Pi Alpha leaders. The two squads met on the last day of the schedule, 

and the Frosh scored a sensational 3-0 win over the fraternity men. Their final credit 

column included eighteen victories and the bowling trophy. The debit side only showed 

three defeats and brought their average but a slight degree under 1,000. 

Pi Alpha Lambda had a threatening team in the running, and only missed the 
trophy by a few games. Reed, Manley, Higgins, Bremner, and Fox, upheld the fraternity 
honor in the league, showing great skill in handling the ebony sphere. They played 
through the season with but two losses up to the final gong when they dropped the three 
fatal contests to the Freshmen Commerce squad. This gave them fifteen wins, five 
defeats, and second place in the league. The fraternity will have practically the same 
team back next year, and thev expect to turn the tables for the championship berth. 

Strike or Spare? 

Page 2i8 


The Sophomore Pre-Medics had a team that showed more fight than any other 
aggregation. They got off to a poor start when they were forced to meet the leaders 
at the beginning of the season, but they drove at the lines until they boosted themselves 
into third place. No doubt there would have been a greater dispute for the cup if the 
schedule allowed them to go a few weeks more. Rocco, Konopa, R. Fazio, Lukaszewski, 
andZielinski comprised the quintet, while NickBalsamo served as the ever-active manager. 

The Sophomore Arts quintet finished easily in fourth place with twelve victories 
and nine defeats. A constant shake-up in the squad prevented any high calibre of team 
work, and the aggregation suffered by the variety. Toward the finish of the season, they 
decided on a permanent line-up with Caloger, Early, Walsh, Ray and P. Fazio scoring 
the strikes and spares. After this they progressed fairly well but could not overtake the 

The Freshmen Pre-Medics likewise had considerable disorder in their make-up, 
and fell to the bottom of the standing before they could get a footing. Kaveny, Glaven, 
Kennedy, Major, and Fredo comprised the squad in its final state, but could not overcome 
the handicap incurred at the beginning of the schedule and finished fifth. 

The Phi Mu Chi placed a well formed squad in the League, but a number of forfeited 
games put them far back in the running. Whenever they bowled, the quintet made a 
fine showing but their absence at several encounters overshadowed their wins and forced 
them to take the last position. Sullivan, Foster, Meany, Young, and Martin did the 
wood-chopping for the fraternity. 

The t rophy next year will undoubtedly be larger than the silver cup presented this 
year to the winners of the league, as it is planned to extend competition to all colleges 
of the University. Since the league was so eminently successful on the North Campus, 
there is no reason why it should not be welcomed at the other departments. At any rate 
the bowling league has made an admirable start with its first season of interesting com- 
petition, and certainly is no small addition to the many activities now enjoyed at Loyola.

Morton Zabel, A. M. 
Moderator of Publications 

Page 25Z 



Of all the activities at Loyola, none can be said to have en- 
joyed greater success than the publications. The Loyola News, 
the Loyola Quarterly and the Loyolan have, since the reestablishment 
of the Arts and Sciences department on the North Campus, grown 
tremendously, grown at a rate even faster than the phenomenal 
rate of growth the whole University has enjoyed. Credit for this 
has universally gone to the student officers of these publications, 
and no one doubts that they deserve it, but many times that very 
essential administrator, the faculty moderator, has been overlooked. 

Morton Zabel has been moderator of student publications ever 
since the rebirth of Loyola on the North Side, and has been un- 
doubtedly the strongest single force in their great prosperity. The 
Quarterly, the oldest of the publications, has increased its size and 
won universal recognition as one of the best magazines in its class. 
That this is due to his splendid literary supervision and initiative 
no one can doubt. The News, after a few months under a separate 
moderator, came under his supervision in the fall of 1925 and 
he has handled his delicate and none too pleasant job in a praise- 
worthy manner, at all times encouraging student initiative in this 
newspaper and employing only that much faculty supervision 
as is necessary for the well-being of the paper. 

Mr. Zabel's greatest work, however, has been on the Loyolan. 
It was he who did all the initial and thankless spadework which 
brought this year-book into reality and the first two volumes repre- 
sent almost everywhere his own unaided work. That this volume, 
together with its predecessor, is representative of student en- 
deavor does not decrease the amount of praise and thanks which 
are due the moderator. He has always been on hand, always ready 
to lend his own efforts and advice to this great work, and there is 
not one member of the staff, or of any publication staff, who does 
not admire and respect Mr. Zabel for all his excellent work in 
making Loyola publications what they ought to be.

The fourth Loyolan makes its bow to the public in a some- 
what more pretentious dress than its predecessors were wont 
to wear, in the hope that it may thereby provide a more ade- 
quate chronicle of the year's events and happenings at a great 
and rapidly growing University. Due to the enthusiastic recep- 
tion of the Loyolan of nineteen twenty-six, the editors of this 
year's book felt encouraged to introduce many innovations, 
expansions of both quantity and quality, which only the splendid 
work done, and the able organization built up, in the preceding 
years have made possible of fulfilment. An increase in paging 
of a third over the volumes of former years was contemplated 
and carried out, despite the formidable amount of extra work 
which such a project entailed. An art staff of excellent ability 
was built up from nothing, after a thorough combing of every 
department of the University for talent, and various new sec- 
tions were added in an attempt to lend the book an air of 
novelty as well as an aspect of interest. 
Chief among these are the department devoted to Loyola Life and the section in 
which the religious activities of the school year are recorded. In the first of these it has 
been the object of the editors to portray in picture and story the more informal side of 
school life, special occasions of the less solemn and formal kind, and those phases of stu- 
dent activity that are nearest to the heart of the University man. That this section, .in 
some respects, fell short of the hopes of the editors is due in part to the novelty of the 
project; and the staff trusts that in future years the value of such a department dealing 
with Loyola life will be better understood and appreciated by the students, and that 
contributions and suggestions for its betterment will be abundantly forthcoming from 

The new religious section fills a need which has long been felt. At a Catholic uni- 
versity where the religious interests of the students are necessarily an integral part of the 
college life, it is only fitting that these many and varied activities be grouped under one

head and presented in such a way as to show the strength and 
vitality of the religious life here. The spiritual in the life of the 
typical Loyolan is nothing abstract ; and the editors therefore take 
pleasure in introducing this aspect of his activity to the reader. 

A third entirely new feature had to be abandoned at the 
very monent of its completion on account of lack of space. It 
had been the intention of the gentlemen who labored on this 
volume to append thereto a complete roster of all the students 
in the University, together with their addresses, their college, 
their rating, and the degree for which they are working. But 
Fate was unkind. Even with the extra hundred pages over last 
year's book, the material for the regular sections ran over into 
the space alloted for this, and the blue pencil had to be sorrow- 
fully called into service at the last minute. May better luck 
attend next year's effort! 

In expressing his thanks to the men of his staff, the editor 
feels actually at a loss for words. Certainly few ever worked 

harder, and, he believes, more successfully, than did these men in the production of this 
book. Each of them realized his responsibility, took it over, and discharged it with the 
utmost faithfulness; some even volunteering to do extra work outside of their own field 
in order to speed progress. With this excellent spirit of harmony in endeavor, is it any 
wonder that each and all can recall some happy times spent up in Room 323, Cudahy 
Hall — even though some of these times may have been in the wee hours of the nite? 

Although all on the staff contributed their full share to the final result, there is one 
man who stands out as having taken on himself a major share of hard work. Whenever 
there was something to be done swiftly — a page of "filler" to be written, a form letter 
to be gotten out, some emergency snapshots to be taken — it was always Jim O'Connor 
who was on the job. Ostensibly handling only the business end of the book, he was 
actually the biggest single factor in its literary makeup. He restricted his endeavors to 
no particular phase of the work, and was ever ready, despite a host of other activities

in which he was engaged, to aid in whatever was going forward. As a consequence it 
was with perfect confidence that the staff accorded Jim the honor of carrying on the tradi- 
tion in the coming year; electing him, by unanimous vote, editor-in-chief of the nineteen 
twenty-eight Loyolan. The retiring editors can wish Jim nothing better than that he 
experience the good fortune that his hard work and exceptional ability merit. 

Another man who, by his ceaseless diligence and untiring energy, proved himself 
indispensable in the race with the publisher, was Willis Carpenter. Will, holding down the 
post of Photographic Editor, spent a good deal of his scholastic career down at Morri- 
son's, and his help in the tedious work of writing and phoning delinquent photographic 
subjects was inestimable. 

The artistic aspect of the book, however, was the one which needed the greatest 
development, and it is to the unqualified credit of the three artists, Russel Dorgan, 
Loretto Brannan, and Paul Lietz, that they were able to overcome such extraordinary 
handicaps in the way of tradition and to build up for themselves an art organization which 
produced such excellent results. It is only right to say that the staff, and, indeed, the 
whole University owes to these three patient workers a debt of gratitude which it will 
be difficult to repay. 

Those men and women who graduated this year will find it hard to forget John 
Morris, the Senior Editor, with whom all of them have had, at one time or another, 
lengthy correspondence. John's efficient, quiet work was matched by that of Morgan 
Healy, a Sophomore, who was awarded the position of Fraternity Editor and discharged 
his duties so admirably that he has been rewarded with the commission of Managing 
Editor on next year's staff. Edward Bremner did mammoth work collecting and mount- 
ing snapshots, and the success of that section is due almost entirely to him. Then there 
is a host of other faithful helpers, the least of whom is worthy of distinct praise. George 
Ray, William Colohan, Robert Lee, Frank Haley, Harold Hillenbrand, Paul Reed, 
Lawrence Crowley, Carl Klein, Thomas Hickey, Frank Walsh, John Bergmann, Al 
Brown, Ella Madden, Mary Driscoll, Maori Maloney, and James Brown — all have helped 
to make the book what it is, and to all the editor extends his sincere thanks and appre- 
ciation for their fine helpfulness and real spirit of cooperation in a large endeavor.

The Loyola Quarterly has rounded out its twenty-fourth year 
of existence as a year of transition. It was something more than 
a mere while ago that the publication attained full stature as a 
genuine literary medium, and a voice worthy to bespeak the 
University, but due to the pressure of extrinsic circumstance, 
the limitations upon content were not always as clearly defined 
as they might have been. In the course of its very active life, 
the magazine has been called upon to reflect student life in its 
entirety: to render a news service to the institution, recording 
even the events of very passing interest; to provide the sole 
record of achievement for individuals and organizations; and 
even under the much-abused caption of "Humor" to extend 
shelter to sophomoric outpourings. There is little doubt but 
the Quarterly acquitted itself with a certain amount of distinction, 
but there persists the proportionate certainty that real progress 
was very materially hindered. The obvious handicaps proved 
conducive to an undesirable attitude of staid complacency in matters pertinent to make- 
up and content. Innovations were to a considerable extent outlawed by circumstance. 
Within the past four years the Loyola News and the Loyola n have displayed a mar- 
velous growth and attained to a very enviable position in the life of the University. 
But this by no means represents their totality of achievement: further, they have relieved 
the Quarterly of the great onus of extra-literary features, permitting a reversion to its 
originally purposed literary policy, and are thus partially responsible for whatever 
latter-day progress has been made. It was these other publications which made possible 
the deletion of the Athletic Notes and Chronicle during the year 1926-27. 

It has been remarked that the past year has been one of transition. It was antici- 
pated as such by the staff. Despite the fact that circulation now includes all departments 
except that of dentistry, the Quarterly is still obliged to rely almost solely on the Arts 
Department for contributions. This does not represent a departmental perogative, but,

The New Cover 

on the contrary, is an unfortunate and rather inevitable situation. 
During the past year, however, something of an attempt has been 
made to interest a greater number in the work. Not a few new 
names have appeared on the roster of contributors, and if the 
standard of content has suffered in any wise as a result, this has 
been more than ;offset by the very fact of contribution and the 
assurance of future material. The book review section has 
attained to new levels, particularly in the topical quality of its 
reviews, for a modest appropriation has placed at its disposal 
the newest in fiction and non-fiction. 

The staff realized the fact that the road of the innovator is a 
difficult one to traverse, but was also cognizant of the truth that 
gains made piecemeal are just as valuable in the ultimate aggre- 
gate as those made at one stroke, and frequently cause less dis- 
turbance. It was determined to attempt to gain a single point 
with each issue, and the plan has proved at least partially success- 
ful. The new cover design pictured here was the first step in this campaign; running 
heads were introduced; proper title and contents pages were provided; several bits of 
design were obtained for ornamental tail-pieces; and the introduction of a new depart- 
ment is at least contemplated for the final issue. 

The further development of the Quarterly will be entrusted to next year's editor-in- 
chief, Willis Carpenter. In conjunction with William Rafferty, Managing Editor, John 
Waldron, Literary Editor, Harold Hillenbrand and Charles Stimming, Dramatic Editors, 
and John Keating, Exchange Editor, he will strive to enlarge and better the work which 
this year's staff has modestly sought to carry on. 

To all contributors to the Loyola Quarterly, the members of the staff express their 
sincere gratitude. No matter what the disparity between prospect and retrospect, the 
latter themselves may take a reasonable pride in the conscientious efficiency with which 
they carried out duties often very onerous. The fulfillment of their ideas, they now leave 
to hands more w-orthy, with the realization that, despite the absence of complete satis- 
faction, any regret is to be tempered by the knowledge of work honestly and sincerely

At the start of this year the Loyola News faced the usual 
number of problems, with some interesting variations. The old 
quintet, composed of John Sweeney, Harold Hillenbrand, William 
Schoen, Edwin Richer and Ambrose Kelly, that had started the 
paper and taken it through the first two tumultuous years, was 
scattered. Hillenbrand, Sweeney and Schoen went to the other 
departments, greatly strengthening the staff there. Kelly, the 
only one remaining on the North Campus, took the post as editor 
and conducted the paper through its arduous season. A call for 
men was issued and met with fair success, the new staff being 
composed principally of sophomores and freshmen. With this 
new organization the first issue was published on September .30. 
Within a few weeks the increased volume of advertising 
and news made it necessary to enlarge the paper and, with finan- 
cial strength added by the success of the annual Fall Frolic, the 
size of the Loyola News was raised almost half as much again. 
The new weekly compares very favorably in appearance and makeup with any Catholic 
College paper printed throughout the country. The rest of the year was devoted to the 
routine work of producing a paper every week. The last issue of the school year ap- 
peared on May 18. 

Besides the regular issues the Loyola News published its usual number of special 
issues. Two eight-page editions were produced, one just before the Fall Frolic and the 
other before the Tournament, The annual Jazz edition was also produced on May 4, 
rivaling any Hearst publication for sensationalism and screaming type faces. Increased 
advertising and news again made expansion necessary near the close of the school year 
and experiments were made with a six-page edition. They proved very popular with the 
students and recommended further expansion during the next school year. 

During the year the Loyola News engaged in some activities outside the usual jour- 
nalistic sphere but inside the scope of a modern newspaper work. Among them was the 
Fall Tennis Tournament, conducted by the News. It was held under the personal direc-

tion of Mr. Kelly and proved a remarkable success. Over forty 
entries were received from all departments of the University and 
great interest was aroused among the students. Emmet Hogan 
won the title as champion of Loyola and was presented with a 
Spaulding racquet by the News. John Coffey, the runner-up re- 
ceived a free bid to the Fall Frolic. The third and fourth place 
winners received silver pencils. 

Another new field was entered by the News when it published 
a Ho-Hum verse book this spring. The book, containing the pick 
of the contributions to the News for the past two years, appeared 
May 1 and received a hearty welcome from the student body. 
This is one of the first college books of this type to be printed 
and it evoked a great deal of favorable comment throughout 
the city. The response to it shown by the student body makes 
it probable that the Ho-Hum verse book will be an annual 
affair. It, and the column from which it was extracted, is a 

great tribute to William Schoen, the witty and versatile WILL, and his band of gifted 

In order to cover more completely the ever growing stream of University news and 
render even better and more accurate service to the student body, the Loyola News staff 
was completely reorganized at the end of the first semester. Three separate staffs, one 
for each important division of the University, were instituted. The business staff was 
made distinct and separate from the editorial department, with its headquarters on the 
North Side. The purpose of the three staffs was, as stated in the paper, to make possible 
the more efficient covering of the news throughout the University. Joseph Grady, 
a Junior in Arts, was made managing Editor of the North Side department, with J. 
Francis Walsh as his assistant. On the West Side Harold Hillenbrand, one of the original 
five, is in charge, with James Keeley as assistant editor. Jack Sweeney, the original 
managing editor of the Loyola News, heads the Loop staff, with Thomas Harrington and 
Harold Wirth as assistants. In every department a loyal and energetic corps of reporters

and representatives is maintained to secure the large amount of news 
needed for each issue. 

During the past year the Loyola News has tried to maintain a 
consistent and aggressive editorial policy. Its success has been shown 
by the interest aroused in the student body. On several occasions the 
editorials have brought forth a storm of criticism from students or 
faculty. It is usually understood however that the articles appearing 
jjffi £ i in the News are approved only by the editorial board and do not 

represent the official views of the University or the student body. 

The increasing stream of news available in the University, together 
with the excellent work being done by the Business department, makes 
it quite probable that the News will be further expanded during the 
next school year. The position of Loyola as the second largest Cath- 
olic University in the country makes it imperative that it be represented 
by an outstanding newspaper. Despite its meteoric rise during the past two years, the 
News has not yet attained this ideal. It is the hope of the staff to reach the 
desired position next year. With the new organization and the same complete 
support from the students in the future that it has received in the past the News 
hopes to continue its onward march. 

In any resume of the year's activities the consistent, faithful and unremitting labors 
of the staff members must be given due attention. A newspaper is only as great as the 
men that produce it. No mechanical facilities or equipment can take the place of human 
brains and hands. The work of the News and its steady advance is the only testimonial 
needed for the ability and work of its staff. Those who have directed its destiny during 
the last school year have fully lived up to the traditions that call for any sacrifice neces- 
sary to promote the interests of Loyola or the News. They have written another chapter 
to one of the most glorious epics in Loyola, that of the Loyola News.

Spurred on by the triumphs of the Ramblers and stimulated by 
the successes of the Sock and Buskin Club, the Debating Club of 
Loyola University laid plans last fall for a most ambitious develop- 

The accomplishments of the present hour, however, can be seen 
full length only after a glance at the habits of the past. 

Debating was once the foremost activity of old St. Ignatius Col- 
lege. But after the transference of the college plant to the North 
Campus, and, it appears, for some time before, this form of activity 
attracted little student enterprise and limited faculty attention. Irreg- 
ular meetings, scanty membership, a meager schedule of contests, and 
disorganization were the order of the day. 

But fortune changed her aspect for the loyal few when the present 
season began. Mr. Charles S. Costello, late of Creighton University 
of Omaha, Nebraska, accepted the post of coach of the Debating Club. He brought to 
his new work an abundance of energy, a knowledge of speech, and an ambition to develop 
to the utmost the material of which the Club consisted. From the outset he possessed 
the entire confidence and cooperation of all the officers of the society. Its steady Vice- 
President, Francis P. Naphin, its alert Treasurer, James C. O'Connor, and its attentive 
Secretary, George K. Ray, combined their efforts with those of the President in their com- 
mon aim to revive debating as a substantial element in the affairs of the student body. 
The first step was to establish on a firm footing the weekly meeting. Frank Doheny 
aided this attempt by drafting a constitution, and by supplying the Loyola News with 
detailed notices of the work undertaken by the members of the Club, week by week. 
A Debating Bulletin Board in the Cudahy Building brought the Club directly before the 
students. A more congenial meeting-place was obtained through the courtesy of the 
Director of Athletics, who allowed the Club the use of one of the nicely appointed social 
rooms in the Gymnasium.

A further innovation, to insure more adequate knowledge of de- 
bate subjects, was the arrangement whereby the Librarian, Miss 
Ryan, very kindly reserved a separate section of the Library for the 
Debating Club. In this Seminar are to be found ample and up-to- 
date manuals of debating, a variety of periodicals with information on 
the selected subjects, and every reference resource available. 

And before any intercollegiate contests were waged, the members 
of the teams unsheathed their forensic swords before two semi-public 
audiences, branches of the Holy Name Society. The prospect of 
further contests of this sort allowed of the selection of two more 
teams, likewise of three men each, who later appeared before other 
semi-public audiences, gaining invaluable experience for themselves 
and providing quite pleasing entertainment for their hosts. 

When the time arrived for entering upon the intercollegiate 
schedule, two progressive steps were made. An appropriation for the season was 
obtained from the President of the University, adequate to support a respectable season, 
and the policy of engaging an expert, critical judge, a professional in the work, was 
adopted. The well-reasoned decisions of these judges have made the experience of 
engaging in intercollegiate debates doubly instructive. And "knowing why" lends satis- 
faction even to losing. 

The assistance of Dean Reiner, the patronage of President Agnew, and the con- 
stant encouragement of the Loyola News accounts for much of the success of the season, 
and their kindness is sincerely acknowledged. 

The Debating Club occupies as essential a place in Loyola University's educational 
system as any extra-class activity can. The successes of to-day are a challenge to the 
initiative, the determination, the spirit of devotion and comradeship of to-morrow. 
With full confidence that skill in speech is well worth-while, may the debaters of next 
season give full play to their capabilities as have the debaters of this year, to the end that 
under the forward-looking leadership of their officers, debating at the University may 
reach the glorious destiny it is set for. ROBERT C. HARTNETT.

ever recorded at the North Campus. During the course of the year eleven intercollegiate 
debates were scheduled with teams noted for their forensic skill. At present the record 
shows five wins and five defeats, with one yet to be decided. 

The Club opened its intercollegiate season on January 25, with a dual debate with 
Wheaton College. The question discussed was the regular varsity question: "Resolved: 
That the Volstead Act be amended to permit the manufacture and sale of light wines 
and beer." This question was used in all of Loyola's intercollegiate and semi-public 
debates and was probably the most generally-discussed of all the college questions 
during the past season. 

The Loyola affirmative team, composed then of Francis Naphin, Richard Ford 
and George Ray, made the trip to Wheaton and lost on an expert judge's decision after 
a close and interesting debate. The negative team of Francis Canary, Francis Haley and 
James O'Connor evened the score by winning, also by an expert judge's decision, over 
the Wheaton affirmative team, at St. Ignatius' Auditorium. 

Marquette University of Milwaukee provided the next opposition for the varsity. 
Robert Hartnett, who had returned from the Aloysian Pilgrimage, joined the negative 
team, and he, Haley and O'Connor were awarded a two to one decision over the Mar- 
quette affirmative before the student body of Rosary College. This was the only time 
that an expert critic judge was not used at a home debate and it was rather an innova- 
tion in college debating because of the unusual audience. Marquette unexpectedly used 
the informal English style of debating, a surprise to their opponents. 

The following evening the affirmative team traveled to Milwaukee and, also facing 
the English style, won a unanimous victory over the Hilltop negative. 

The next debate, with the traditional rivals, St. Louis University, was also a home- 
and-home encounter, held on February 24. This time the negative team made the trip 
and m the Mound City they met their first upset of the season, losing a two to one 
decision. The affirmative kept up the standard by winning a decisive decision from an 
expert judge before Father Perez Council, Knights of Columbus.

After this defeat, the negative team clashed with the powerful Creighton University 
affirmative on March 7, on the occasion of the latter's Eastern trip. St. Augustine 
Council provided a large and wonderfully appreciative audience. Although Hartnett, 
Haley and O'Connor were all in splendid form that night, the experience and the easy 
flow of oratory of the Omaha speakers was a little too much for them, and they lost by 
what Professor Alan Monroe of the Northwestern University School of Speech termed 
the closest decision he had had to give. 

The next evening, March 8, the affirmative team met St. Xavier's College of Cin- 
cinnati before Columbus Council, Knights of Columbus. The personnel was slightly 
altered, Francis Walsh replacing Ford. The newness of the combination seemed to 
throw the Loyola team off their stride and St. Xavier's was awarded an expert judge's 

At this stage, with the count showing four wins and four losses, the teams were 
reduced to two men and completely revamped. O'Connor and Ray formed the new 
affirmative combination and Naphin and Hartnett, the two seniors, were teamed together 
on the negative. This new affirmative team then journeyed to Cincinnati on April 7, 
the first eastern trip taken by a Loyola team, and lost by a two to one vote, after an 
exceptionally close debate. 

Then, in the big debate of the year, against the great Boston College team, held at 
St. Ignatius' Auditorium on April 19, Naphin and Hartnett ended their college debating 
careers in a blaze of glory by winning a decisive expert decision from the splendid eastern 
combination. This victory, termed clear-cut and unquestionable, marked the climax 
of remarkable debating careers for these two men, Naphin concluding his second year 
and Hartnett his third of varsity experience. 

The final debate of the year will be held late in April against Valparaiso University. 
Loyola will uphold the affirmative and will send Haley, Ford and William Conley 
down to the Indiana city. 

Thus a recount of the season shows five victories and five defeats, all against schools 
of recognized forensic caliber and with splendid records. It is a source of pride to the 
team to recall that most of these favorable decisions have been awarded by qualified 
expert critic judges, men who have done actual work on coaching debating teams and 

Page 269 


who not only give a decision, but give at the same time a complete analysis of the debate, 
together with their reasons for the decision thereof. The satisfaction of winning a debate 
of this type is far superior to that gained by any other sort of victory, while even in 
defeat, the knowledge of one's shortcomings is invaluable in the training for effective 
speaking, which after all is the real purpose of collegiate debating, much more so than the 
mere gaining of favorable decisions. To the men who have given such splendid service 
as expert judges the team owes much, for their decisions, favorable or unfavorable, have 
always been unquestionably fair and their criticism and the interest they have displayed 
in the team have meant much in the matter of subsequent improvement. 

Of all the men who have aided the team in its great season, none is more deserving 
of mention and praise than Coach Charles S. Costello. He has been mentioned elsewhere, 
but no account of the season could possibly be complete without notice of his worth and 
merit. He brought to the men a knowledge of the art of speaking and of the technique 
of debating which proved invaluable but, still more important, he brought a boundless 
store of enthusiasm, a real ability to transmit his knowledge to others and a personal 
influence which was felt by every debater. It is the fervent hope of the entire team that 
he will be back next year to direct the team to what must inevitably prove future tri- 

One of the policies of the new coach, and one of the reasons for the success of the 
team, was their concentrating on a single question, that of modification of the Volstead 
Act to permit the manufacture and sale of light wines and beer. This enabled the de- 
baters to become perfectly familiar with the question in its every aspect and to increase 
their knowledge greatly as the season progressed. The same question was used in the 
semi-public debates and, because of its general interest, proved a very popular one. 

The teams were very evenly matched and a spirited debate was always assured when 
they fought it out in a forensic way. For the affirmative Naphin opened with evidence 
to show the non-intoxicating properties of light wine and beer and argued that the 
Volstead Act could be legally amended. Ford or Walsh followed with figures showing the 

Loyola Negative versus Wheaton 

Page 270 

evils brought by prohibition and Ray closed with an argument that modification would 
remedy those evils. On the negative side, Hartnett or Canary opened with evidence that 
light wine and beer were intoxicating and maintained that such a change would be con- 
trary to both the letter and the spirit of the Constitution. Haley maintained that the 
plan was impracticable and that it had always failed wherever it was tried before, O'Con- 
nor then closed with the argument that there was no need or demand for modification of 
this sort and that Prohibition must either be enforced or repealed altogether. 

Prospects for next year are unquestionably bright. Of the eight men who partici- 
pated in the debates, only Hartnett and Naphin will graduate, while from the reserves, 
of the four men who confined themselves to semi-public debates, only Thomas O'Malley 
will be lost. This will leave Mr. Costello with nine veterans as a nucleus around which to 
build a team, while several promising freshmen have already been discovered and more 
are expected to be unearthed as a result of the Freshman Championship Debate. The 
fact that Ray and Walsh were brought out by this means last year is an indication of the 
caliber of the material expected to be found this time. 

Plans for the coming year include at least one trip more ambitious than any so far 
undertaken and the continuance of all the present ones. The development of the semi- 
public debates also will not be neglected. It is the hope of the Club that more and more 
men can be added to the squad, and that more and more private and semi-public debates 
can be held, thereby giving everybody who wishes to work a chance to speak in public. 
There can be no question that interest in debating through the university is growing, and 
it is a fond hope of the Coach and the officers that soon, perhaps next year, debating will 
be an all-university activity.

The enlargement of the intercollegiate schedule of the Debating Club during the 
past season was accompanied by the establishment of a system of holding debates before 
audiences of a "semi-public" nature, in which both teams consisted of members of the 
University Debating Club. The obvious advantage of such a practice was in giving the 
varsity debaters an opportunity to sharpen their wits and in affording to the younger 
members an experience which augurs well for their getting a chance in intercollegiate 
debates next season. 

While members of the varsity teams appeared in these entertainment contests, 
more importance attaches to the exhibitions given by men who made their first public 
demonstration on these occasions. Thomas O'Malley, Frank Doheny, John Keating, 
Paul Lietz, Richard Ford, Frank Canary and J. Francis Walsh did considerable of this 
work, the latter three appearing in varsity debates in addition to their semi-public work. 
No trouble was encountered in these switches because the semi-public debaters used the 
same question as that discussed in the varsity contests, modification of the Volstead Act. 

The popularity of the question and the entertaining manner of the debaters created 
quite a demand for these appearances. After the full varsity teams appeared before 
the Holy Name Societies of St. Maurice and St. Benedict parishes, the former thanks to 
John Sullivan and the latter through the interest of Thomas Spelman, several Councils 
of the Knights of Columbus requested the teams. While in some cases varsity debates 
were arranged to take care of these requests, two of the largest and most enthusiastic 
audiences which greeted any of the Club's teams this year heard the affirmative team of 
Doheny, Walsh and Canary win from the negative team of Keating, Lietz and O'Malley. 
These were at Lafayette Council, where our friend John E. Maloney is Grand Knight, 
and De Soto Council, where Peter N. Kandel is Grand Knight. Both of these Councils 
sent to their large membership very complimentary announcements of our teams, and 
both generously bolstered the treasury of the Club with honorariums. The subsequent 
activity of the Debating Club was possible largely because of this concrete expression of 
appreciation on the part of our hosts. 

The coming season will without doubt see a great expansion in the direction of 
more semi-public contests, by virtue of which so many benefits accrue to the Club as to 
make this expansion a matter of the greatest importance to the organization.

Last spring the Loyola Booster Club Chapter of the Blue Key Honor Society gave 
debating a wonderful impetus by donating a beautiful placque for the champion fresh- 
men debaters.. This gift has since proved to be one of the strongest factors in arousing 
interest in this scholastic pursuit among the younger students in particular and the 
college in general. 

The first debate of this type was held on May 14, 1926, before a general assembly 
of the Arts and Sciences student body. Elimination contests held among the various 
freshman public speaking classes had reduced the field to the representatives of Father 
Reiner's class and Mr. Steggert's. Previous debates before the student body had been 
on the League of Nations and co-education at Loyola. For this debate the question of 
repeal of the 18th Amendment was selected. 

George K. Ray and J. Francis Walsh were picked by Father Reiner to defend 
Prohibition and Thomas Hickey and Charles Weigel opposed it and carried the colors of 
the Registrar against the Anti-Saloon League. The debate was bitterly contested 
throughout, Hickey and Weigel bringing forth arguments to show that Prohibition had 
not accomplished its purpose and that it had brought a wake of evils in its train. Ray 
and Walsh countered with figures to show the economic gains resulting from Prohibition 
and contended that the evils cited were exaggerated and that most of them were not 
caused by the Amendment. 

After a battle which kept the entire student body at a high pitch of interest, the 
decision was awarded to Ray and Walsh and they were also declared the best speakers. 
Accordingly, their names were engraved on the placque, which now hangs in the Library. 

The efficacy of this debate as a training-ground for future varsity debaters may be 
seen from the fact that both the winners were important cogs in the debating team of 
last season. There is every reason to believe that this year's debate will produce just 
as many stars. As the Public Speaking classes have all been consolidated under Mr. 
Costello this year, the eliminations, instead of being by classes, will be conducted by 
means of a general tryout, the four best speakers to fight for the trophy on May 11. This 
year's question will be the adoption of uniform marriage and divorce laws.

Henry A. Fox 

President The Sock 

and Buskin Club 

On Thursday, September 30, the Sock and Buskin Club opened 
the year 1926-7 with its first meeting in the Ashland Block. It was an 
eventful meeting. Henry A. Fox acting as temporary chairman, 
introduced to the club its new moderator, Mr. Costello. Completely 
dispensing with formalities in his speech, Mr. Costello launched into 
his plans for the coming year. They called for a general solidifying 
of the functions of the Club and close cooperation among the mem- 
bers. He submitted a constitution as a basis for future action and he 
definitely announced the keynote of the club to be work. There then 
followed a discussion which resulted in the extension of the privilege 
of membership to all branches of the University. Thus the Sock and 
Buskin Club took its place in the evergrowing list of all-university 
activities and assumed its true proportions as the dramatic organiza- 
tion of a great university. 
Evidences of its new significance were manifested almost immediately. In the cast 
of the first play, "The Goose Hangs High," every department of the university except 
Commerce was represented. The officers which were elected were clearly representative 
of the enlarged aspect of the club. In President Henry A. Fox of the Arts department, 
the club found a man of recognized business ability who could be depended upon to give 
Mr. Costello all the cooperation necessary for taking care of the minute detail attendant 
upon such business as putting on plays. President Fox was ably aided in his work by 
the wise selection of such other officers as Miss Marie Kelly of the Graduate School, 
Secretary, Mr. Ambrose Kelly, of the Arts, Business Manager, Mr. John Sweeney of 
Law, Assistant Business Manager, and Mr. Harold Hillenbrand of the Dental School, 
Publicity Manager. The records of these officers quite justify the confidence entrusted 
to them by the club. Mr. Kelly exhibited his executive talent as well as his capacity 
for work by his management of "The Goose Hangs High." To Mr. Hillenbrand the 
labors of publicity were entrusted and the audiences bear tribute to his skill, Later in the

year, Mr. Kelly, because of pressing duties in other fields, resigned 
his post as business manager and was succeeded by Mr. Frank Manley, 
To him fell the task of arranging the affairs of "The Three Wise Fools," 
and the success of the affair may in no small measure be attributed 
to his earnest and efficient management. 

It would certainly not do to leave out of this record of the club 
some recognition of the lively interest and active cooperation of the 
coeds. There is Miss Kelly, who in the past season took an active 
part in the executive functioning of the club and who has already won 
repute as an actress of parts from her participation in the play of the 
preceding year. In "The Goose Hangs High," Miss Theresa Stocker 
of the Graduate School achieved great distinction and thereafter be- 
came known as Eunice Ingals. Miss Helen Byrne as Dagmar was the 
bewitching and firm-minded young lady who shaped the destinies of 
Hugh Ingals. Miss McAuliffe everyone can remember best as "Granny," 
in "The Goose Hangs High," although as Mrs. Saunders she made a startling transfigur- 
ation. Miss Higgins is another one of the immortals who covered herself with glory in 
that first play. Miss Barker's possibilities were uncovered when she entered as a 
demure little maid and she was given a real opportunity to shine as the leading lady of 
"Three Wise Fools." 

The Sock and Buskin Club has this year attained heights which completely outclass 
those of previous years. There has been splendid cooperation and real efficiency which 
are graphic tributes to the businesslike methods of Mr. Costello and President Fox. 
Two plays which were a credit to the university have gone by the board and the meet- 
ings have been interesting and well-attended. With this record for the year the club can 
look forward to the next with expectation of a repetition of past successes and a live in- 
terest in what the future has in store. PAUL S. LIETZ.

With the traditions and experience of a previous successful 
year to guide it, the club selected for its first production on Decem- 
ber 13 "The Goose Hangs High." It was real work that made 
the play successful. It required no little amount of grinding, bor- 
ing rehearsal night after night and it really reflects the real spirit 
of those who put on the play, the never-tiring efforts of Mr. Costello 
and his corps of assistants as well as the labors of the cast them- 
selves. All those Ingals and those Murdocks were not made over 
night and they no doubt thought often and even bitterly on their 
hard lot and the task to which they had set themselves. They 
were rewarded, however, for the play was all that was expected of 
it. The audience, coming perhaps with a patronizing air, stayed 
to enjoy and repeatedly voiced their approval. It was a real 
university play and certainly deserved the support which it received. 
The cast would have done credit to any stock company. 
Those twins; who can forget those twins? If they had made one 
more entry such as the one where they arrived from college, the 
fat man in the front seat would have lost all the buttons off his vest and Granny would 
have been forced to readjust her wig from the warmth of that greeting. Wasn't 
Granny the fidget and fuss? She simply delighted in giving us those pieces of her mind 
piping hot as though they had just come off a griddle. And wasn't Bernard the sedate 
old chap? Real noble-looking old fellow. He and Eunice made a charming couple. 

Leo Day as rendered by Fred St ticker was a clever piece of caricature. He drew a 
laugh the minute he walked on the stage. That fur coat and derby, that cigar and that 


| teia^ggB^w^ gg^ig^ffl.ffli^^' ^ig^H^^ ^g ^^^^^^^^g 

cane made a rare combination, not to mention the spats, the 
moustache, and the ice cream suit. Some of the audience 
were seen to rub their eyes on the appearance of the fur coat 
as though they might, perchance, have seen it somewhere 
before. And so we might go on through the whole caste, 
Julia and Ronald Murdock, Rhoda, Noel Derby, and Elliott 
Kimberley all had salient features and were very well done. 
To Mr. Costello, of course, goes a major part of the 
credit for the success of this dramatic effort. It is to him 
primarily that the active energy of the club this year and its 
widening scope of interest is due. It is to his guiding spirit, 
his attention to minute detail, and his constancy and energy in 
rehearsals that finally evolved that finished caste which ren- 
dered such an entertaining evening at the Goodman 
on the thirteenth of December.

On Monday, May 9, the second 
play of the year, "Three Wise Fools" 
was presented at the Goodman 
Theater. This very neat little play- 
house had found favor with the crowd 
on all previous occasions and the club 
saw in its selection an important asset 
to the success of the play. That it 
was a success, no one could success- 
fully dispute. 

The audience, due to the failure 
of the weather man to behave prop- 
erly, was not as large as that which the 
previous play attracted, but whatever 
the crowd lacked in size, it made up in 
enthusiasm. The smooth, finished 
performance rendered by the cast was 
a splendid tribute to the direction and ability of Mr. Costello. Outstanding was the 
portrayal of Findley, by Jack Mullen, who showed himself singularly suited for the part 
and lived up to the reputation he had so well attained in two previous Sock and Buskin 
plays. On the feminine side of the cast, Virginia Barker, in the role of Sidney Fairchild, 
upholding one of the most difficult parts in the play, completely captivated the audience 
with her clever and finished acting. Norton O'Meara gave another of the romantic and 
heart-stealing performances of the type which had made him famous in "The Goose Hangs 
High," and incidentally made many a feminine heart in the audience beat a little faster, 
when the groundlings saw him in the part of Gordon. Raymond Kerwin and Thomas Har- 
ringtoji, as the other two staid and settled bachelors, showed that their previous work was 
no fortunate piece of chance, but that they possessed real histrionic ability. Alice McAuliffe 
filled the other female role, that of Mrs. Saunders, the housekeeper, in splendid style. 

Page 280 

Thus, at the conclusion of the 
greatest year in history for Loyola 
dramatics, one can see clearly that the . 
future is promising. The talent dis- 
played in this play, as well as in its 
predecessor, ought to silence the most 
doubting and convince anyone that 
surely next year will see even greater 
dramatic attempts successfully con- 
summated by the Sock and Buskin i 
Club. The members have proven to 

the university and to their friends that j JK';^- 

they have the ability — and the school 
has shown that it is interested in 
dramatics. The plays have found fa- 
vor in ever-increasing measure and the 
Club is consequently looking forward 
to greater and greater success.

Miss Sylvia Rubloff 


Surpassing in glory and stateliness the Proms of former years, the 
Junior Prom of 1927 transpired with a flare of beauty and dignity in 
the new and brilliant ballroom of the Illinois Women's Athletic Club, 
on the evening of March 25th. The setting was one unique both in 
the appointment and in the comforts it presented the guests of the 
evening. The ballroom, embracing an entire floor in the entirely new 
Club Building, presents an enticing marble floor, extreme and luxurious 
lounges, and the richest of draperies. In a charming nook separating 
the ballroom into two even and beautiful equals, was esconced the 
orchestra, surrounded by scintillating flashes of melody. 

The evening was one of the most enjoyable and memorable to be 
experienced during the school year. The entire University was more 
than amply represented in every department, fully three hundred 
couples tripping the light fantastic and lending color to the Grand March during the 
evening. The unanimous opinion, expressed in the continuous call for extended dance 
numbers, and in the prolonged dancing until the last possible moment, powerfully weighted 
down the balance in favor of the Illinois Women's Athletic Club for future dances. 

The Grand March was an event to live long in the memories of those who were 
present. Led by the King of the Prom, Leo Lederer, and his fair partner, Miss Sylvia 
Rubloff, the long procession, which seemed almost endless, wound down the entire length

of the ballroom, to the stirring chords of the Loyola Victory Song. During the course of 
the March, the beautiful favors were presented to each lady and her escort. At the end 
of the evening the elimination dance held to choose the winners of the grand prizes which 
were offered by the Committee; created the most exciting moments of the evening dis- 
placing even the tantalizing music for the moment ; the orchestra was nearly crowded 
off its dais in the eagerness of the crowd to learn the winners' names and view the presen- 
tation of the prizes. 

As soon as the gleaming prizes disappeared from view the couples were again dancing. 

Mr. Robert E. Lee, chairman of the dance committee, performed a wonderful work 
with his cohorts in the arrangement of the details, in securing the new ballroom and in 

the selection of the beautiful favors. Their labor was fully recom- , 

pensed in the splendor of the dance and the delight of all present. 
The plans were so laid that every comfort was prepared, every con- 
tingency thought of and immediately met. When the guests were not 
dancing, the downy lounges beckoned or the tables invited them to 
cooling and enticing refreshments. The selection of prize winners 
entertainingly varied the pleasure of the evening. 

But the Prom Committee acknowledges a deep indebtedness to -I 

Mrs. Nooney, who worked with them tirelessly and faithfully in at- , 
taining the social and financial success that the Prom reached. 

It is hoped that the success of the present year's Prom will be a 
stimulus to even greater accomplishments in the future, and that Loyola 
shall continue in the ascendency socially as well as scholastically, I 
gaining greater prestige through the glory of her all-University affairs.

Martin Griffin 

With the largest Arts Sophomore class in history behind its 
president, Marty Griffin arranged the annual dance. If it is the object 
of any class to surpass itself each year in the social achievements in- 
cluded in this annual dinner dance, that class is the Arts Sophomores. 
With this in view, Marty made lavish and elaborate arrangements. 
He secured the Bal Tabarin ballroom of the Hotel Sherman for the 
event, and induced Jack Chapman to agree to provide the entertain- 
ment. From all accounts, Jack far exceeded the terms of his agree- 

The two hundred and more who attended are not famous for their 
habit of worrying over studies, but tonight they were freer from 
the cares of this world than ever — the exams were over and their 
outcome happily an unknown quantity. The tantalizing tunes and 
compelling harmonies of Jack Chapman and his musical men were too 
They glided over the floor of the beautiful Bal Tabarin ballroom in a daze 

much for them 

of undisturbed joy. . 

But the entertainment committee had more than this in store for them. Several 
features had been provided for, and later in the evening Frank Lauranzano, when pre- 
vailed upon to render several vocal numbers, received storms of applause from all present. 

Deserving the place of honor and climax at the finish of the list, stands the dinner. 
Ravishing dishes placed before the guests tempted so strongly that even the siren call of 
Chapman's lute could not persuade them to leave the table for quite a while. Altho 
Jack's melody won out in the end, it is as yet an undecided question whether the couples 
had had their fill or they just couldn't resist the music. The latter seems plausible, when 
the type and beauty of the numbers played are considered.

Robert Hawkins 


On January 15th the powers of Christmas were still upon them 
when the merry Medics convened with the Sophomores in noticeable 
prominence and uncontested control. The Italian Room of the Aller- 
ton Club, large and beautiful, with impressive decoration and soft 
tapestries thrilled the couples with all the scintillating brilliance they 
had expected. 

The pleasure they evinced showered praise upon the excellent 
work the committee had accomplished and distinction upon the entire 
Sophomore class. Robert Hawkins was chairman of the committee, 
and was assisted by Wallace Karr, who had secured the Allerton Club 
as the scene of the dance, by Jack Keeley, through whose efforts the 
popular Allerton Club Orchestra agreed to take what later proved to be 
perfect and enjoyable command of the ballroom floor, and by Byford 
Heskett, who arranged the evening's fine and varied entertainment. 

Not a moment was either wasted or idle. When they were not under the hypnotic 
power of the popular Allerton Club Syncopators, they were enthralled by well known 
singers and dancers secured to make this the unequalled perfect evening. The way the 
doctors took to cutting capers and performing dance operations might be a revelation to 
their future patients, but it only served to prove the efficient capabilities of the arranging 

The delighted exclamations of the couples as they left and their reluctance in getting 
started on the journey home, keeping the orchestra occupied entertaining a well-filled 
floor until the last possible moment, showed that the Sophomores had assumed the 
ascendency among Medical entertainers which only the future might displace. January 
15th will certainly remain in many a mind, especially on the west side of Chicago, as a 
memory of an unexcelled evening of pleasure and gayety with serious and dignified doc- 
tors who had abandoned all their serious dignity to the occasion and to the unstinted 
entertainment of their fair partners.

On Friday, April 29th, the Freshmen Medics set forth upon the 
path of social endeavor with the intention of showing what the young- 
est of doctors are able to do against the experienced competition of 
the upper classmen. The result was one of the most unique events of 
the season, this unusual dance being held at the Samovar, where the 
atmosphere is decidedly and glaringly Russian. It was unusual to the 
precedent set by former Freshmen classes in any department, and 
clearly an innovation at the Medical School. 

Its unheralded success was largely attributed to the fact that 
it was a supper dance. The Freshmen acquitted themselves with hon- 
or in the selection of a repast of unrivaled splendor. A second contrib- 
uting element was felt in the tantalizing music by the irresistible 
Samovar Orchestra, whose scorching notes enticed many a couple 
away from the tasty dinners. 
Extraordinary interest was shown in the affair on the part of the other departments 
as well as the upper classmen in the Medical School. They turned out in great numbers to 
witness this attempt of the Freshmen and left the Samovar with the well founded convic- 
tion that they had some remarkable upper classmen of the future among that number. 
Jack Wall acted as Chairman of the committee on the arrangements, and to him goes 
great credit not only for conceiving so novel an idea for his class, but also for the capable 
manner in which he made that idea a happy and now much praised reality. 

Judging from the general sociability of the dancers and the radiant smiles of 'the 
genial faces of all who were present, the dance was more than a success. There is no deny- 
ing the satisfaction evidenced by all in finding their classmates and schoolmates equal 
to an occasion such as this, able to provide an evening of such new and varied entertain- 
ment an the first year at Loyola. They have established a goal for oncoming Freshmen to 
strive to attain, and a record upper classmen had better look to with an eye on their

James J. Mertz, 

It was the night of the eighteenth of April, Easter Monday, and 
the spirit of the Easter season was everywhere. 

Out of their cars and into the romance of Old Spain stepped ex- 
pectant couples, young and old, all eager to attend the greatest benefit 
party that had ever been held for Loyola. In the Aragon Ballroom 
they swayed to the dreamy waltzes that intensified the convincing 
atmosphere of romance. Stars twinkled down from the blue skies 
upon the gleaming balconies that the boxholders had made their own; 
the moon shed soft light upon the dimly outlined couples, entranced 
as two orchestras, both famous, vied in the attempt to enhance the 
beauty of the glorious night in Spain. As great a crowd as was expect- 
ed, the magnificent and immense floor was filled to its capacity of 
comfort, while couples occupied the luxurious boxes on the "second 
floor" of the villa and the porches ending in the dance floor itself. 

The Aragon Orchestra, itself well known and extremely popular, alternated with 
Herby Mintz's syncopators who are as famous as their leader — sufficient said in their 

Everywhere at once, so it seemed, was Father Mertz, whose efforts to build the Maria 
Delia Strada Chapel have endeared him to every student and crept into the corners of 
many a Chicagoan's heart. Tonight crowned his efforts; his many friends realized the 
work he had expended in making this the outstanding social success of Loyola's season, 
for he directed the arrangements of this dance with capability and skill as great as that 
any dance committee could exhibit. 

The pleasure exhibited by everyone present, the fun and jovial spirit of friendliness 
on the part of all was a pleasing reward for Father Mertz's sleepless efforts; the thousands 
of dollars by which it swelled the chapel fund was a crowning joy; but in his own words 
his greatest happiness was that "they were all his friends."

In the midst of a successful season, on the evening of the victor- 
ious game with Arkansas Poly tech, the students crowded to the 
annual and now well established, traditional Homecoming Dance. 
The team had won, so every care was thrown to the winds. 

Emmet Hogan and Bill Colohan had labored hard to make the 
gym look its best, and the cries of surprise and delight expressed the 
extent to which they had succeeded. The guests entered an Arabian 
dreamland, a huge tent, of which the roof was formed by fluttering 
bands of maroon and gold. In the center of the Gymnasium was situ- 
ated the raised dais of Orchestration, on which were enthroned for 
the evening Jack Higgins and his subjects. 

The entire Gym was darkened except for the pleasant glow from 
the orchestra's throne. The heat of the orchestra itself was apparent 
throughout the evening, being reflected upon the floor by the dancers. 
About the room flickered a mystic light, deepening the shadows where it fell and heighten- 
ing the effect of weirdness. 

No one would ever know the gym that echoed so often with the yells and cheers of 
frantic mobs. The drab emptiness was gone; the splendor of the land of Aladdin had sup- 
planted it, and the hush of the crowd evidenced the impression it had made upon them. 

Jack Higgins fulfilled the hopes of all, supplying perfect orchestration that ener- 
gized even those known for their lack of activity in the class room. Jack found it hard to 
fill all demands, receive congratulations on his fine work, and comprehend the calls that 
insistently came for more of particular numbers as well as of music in general. 

The school owes a lot to Em and Bill for their splendid work, the time they put in to 
decorate the gym and change it so completely overnight, setting a Homecoming record 
in crowds, music and uniqueness. 




On Friday, October 23rd, the Loyola News held its annual Fall 
Frolic at the Oriental Ballroom. This dance has come to be known 
as the carnival of dances. This year it fully lived up to its reputation. 

The Oriental Ballroom was like a corner of heaven set down on 
earth — not really on earth but fourteen stories above the troubled 
streets of the Loop. One stepped into the elevator and was whisked, 
silently and swiftly, to a street in Spain. Wandering troubadors in 
costume meandered through the happy crowd, singing the romantic 
and spirited songs of the land of senors and senoritas. The carnival 
spirit was enhanced by the enthusiasm with which the dancers took 
part, throwing serpentines and confetti at each other with great glee. 

A clever negro dancer added greatly to the entertainment by his 
presentation of the newest dancing novelties. He Charlestoned, 
danced Valencia and Black Bottom and did a few versions of his own. 

He strutted his stuff standing up, sitting down, and lying down. The crowd encored 

him again and again until he was near exhaustion. 

All departments of the University were fully represented at the Frolic and all there 
enjoyed themselves. The twelve-piece orchestra played rhythmic numbers w'ithout end 
and still the crowd called for more. The number of the dancers, one of the largest crowds 
at any of the dances this year, made no impression so far as hindering ease of movement 
as the News, under Ambrose Kelly, had arranged for an unusually spacious ballroom; 
and the smooth, glass-like floor combined with the swelling notes to force insistent cries 
for a continuance of the dancing. The graceful, easy swing of the dancers continued in 
undiminished numbers to the close of the long, delightful evening — the large numbers, 
staying until the last tune left the saxaphone, proclaimed another triumph for the News 
in the opening social event of the University calendar.

One of the most interesting social events of the year was the 
Intercollegiate Dance of Rosary College and Loyola University, inter- 
esting from the stand of its being the first such dance undertaken by 
either institution, interesting in the method of arrangement, and inter- 
esting in the ultimate in that for many and most it was the first meet- 
ing of dancing partners. The dance took place on January 7, in the 
beautiful new social hall at Rosary. 

Following a novel plan that was different to the extreme, the 

boys on arriving at Rosary were introduced to the girls whom they had 

chosen for their respective hostesses for the evening. After the 

formalities of introduction, attended by gasps of delight and surprise, 

the dancing began. A special orchestra had been arranged for by the 

committee, and the remarks of the crowd implanted a deep impression 

of joy at the harmonious waltzes andwonderful"timing"of the players. 

The final results proved that the students from both institutions were well pleased 

with this first attempt at intercollegiate activity between these two strong Catholic 

colleges. Bonds of sympathy, established by this social function, will serve as a potent 

influence in solving any problem that might present itself in the future. 

The arrangements were made by a committee at Rosary College consisting of Mary 
Weimer, chairman, Margaret Driscoll, Mary Agnes Meany, Dorothy Pieckert and Mary 
Thometz; and they were assisted by the cooperation of the Student Council at Loyola, 
who did everything in their power to make the remarkable efforts of the girls at Rosary 
culminate in a really successful evening, that everyone at both institutions hopes will 
soon, repeat itself. To the Rosary committee is deserving the thanks of the students 
of both schools for that opportunity of forming friendships which will last. Congratu- 
lations are due to the Student Council of Loyola and to the Student Government at 
Rosary which, under the leadership of Miss Anne McFarland, sponsored the project.

Harry Kaskey's Olympians never syncopated to a more happy 
or enthusiastic crowd than that which gathered to attend the Com- 
merce Club dance at the new Stevens Hotel on April 30, 1927. Encore 
after encore was called for and the members and friends of the Com- 
merce Club would have liked to stay long after the closing hour of 1 
A. M., were it not for the beckonings of the wee demon Sandman. 

There wasn't any reason why the dance shouldn't be a huge suc- 
cess, both socially and financially, and it measured up to every expec- 
tation. The beauty and spaciousness of the world's largest hotel 
awed everyone. We had a peep into the grandeur of the Stevens 
two days before the formal opening of the hotel. Kaskey's Olympians 
completed all that was necessary to make the evening what it should 
be. The hardworking committee just gazed on the merrymakers, 
realizing that preparations had not been in vain. Later in the evening 
Dean Reedy complimented the Club on the success of the dance and John Grayson, 
President of the Club, thanked the supporters of the dance and extended his best "have 
a good time" to everyone. 

To the committee, consisting of John Kavanaugh, Charles LaFond, Bernard 
McCann, Joseph Osten, William Norkett, Alexander Brown, and Harold Wirth, goes a 
goodly share of the credit. But the committee's work would have been in vain if it had 
not received the support of the full membership of the Commerce Club as well as the 
other departments of the University. And we must not forget Ambrose Kelly, editor 
of the Loyola News, who saw to it that Loyola's weekly gave the dance the required pub- 
licity, nor can we forget the members of the faculty who were able to attend the dance. 

Well, next year, we hope to have the main ballroom of the Stevens Hotel, which is 
forty per cent larger than any other in the city; but we will require all that space to 
accommodate next year's patrons.

One of the outstanding events in the social life of Loyola's fra- 
ternities was the Sigma Nu Phi ball held at the Palmer House March 

Taking place the first day of the twenty-second general term of 
the High Court of Chancery, at which Stephen A. Douglas Chapter of 
the Law Department of Loyola was host, it was attended by delegates 
from practically all the chapters of the fraternity thruout the country. 
Aside from the men of Douglas Chapter, Detroit, Marquette and St. 
Louis University were tied with the largest delegations. 

The dazzling gowns of the women, softened by the sombre black 
of their escorts, made a not-to-be-forgotten picture; a fitting reward 
for the enormous amount of work undertaken by the men of Douglas 
Chapter. The Honorable David H. Caldwell, Lord High Chancellor 
of the Fraternity, from Washington, D. C, to whom formal affairs 
are more or less a common event, was heard to remark that the party 
of Douglas Chapter was an undeniable rival to even the great annual ball of the Diplo- 
matic Corps. 

In addition to the men from the various chapters of Sigma Nu Phi, Douglas Chapter 
had as guests for the evening the officers of their brother fraternity at the Law School, 
Delta Theta Phi, the men of their Chicago Alumni Chapter and guests from the Depart- 
ment of Arts and Sciences. 

On Saturday evening, following the conclusion of the executive sessions of the high 
court, a formal dinner was given for the men of the fraternity in the College Room of the 
Palmer House. John J. Coffey, Jr., of Douglas Chapter introduced the speakers, among 
whom were Dean McCormick and Professor Steele of Loyola Law Department, the 
Grand Master of the Rolls, Charles S. Baer, the Lord High Chancellor-elect, E. W. 
Hammill of New York, and the present Lord High Chancellor, David H. Caldwell.

Traditions in dances are made quickly. The Fraternity of Pi 
Alpha Lambda repeated its successful pre-Christmas Informal of last 
year on December 18th, and repeated it with such success that it may 
justly claim to have established another traditional dance at Loyola. 
Classes were over for the holidays, and as Christmas was but 
a week distant everyone was prepared for a real evening. The fra- 
ternity dance committee, headed by John Bryant and including 
Frank Manley, Paul Lietz and Preston Higgins, felt that the over- 
whelming success of the rather modest dance of last year had entitled 
the members and their guests to something more elaborate. Accord- 
ingly they engaged the entire seventeenth floor of the Furniture Mart, 
which had been the scene of Loyola's first great Junior Prom, and for 
music they secured Joe Rudolph's Rainbo Garden Orchestra. This 
done, they announced the dance and awaited results. 
The night of the dance the huge hall was packed with couples radiant with the spirit 
of the approaching Yuletide and reveling in the enthralling strains of Rudolph's synco- 
pators. The spacious lounge rooms were the Mecca of the quiet-seeking ones, and the 
tables and refreshment booths did their best to allay the thirsty couples. The programs, 
in the fraternity's blue and white, won the admiring glances of everyone. 

It was a real Christmas dance, with the happy spirit of the season predominating. No 
one could fail to have a happy evening under the pleasant spell of this spirit. The music 
was proclaimed the best of the year. The floor, of extraordinary capacity, pleased the 
most exacting in its smooth glacial splendor and comfortable roominess. The con- 
geniality of the crowd itself was sufficient to make any dance a success, and when combined 
with the other individual advantages of this particular dance they placed it upon a 
singular status, making a record in fraternity dances. The music, the spot, the crowd, 
and, above all, the aegis of Christmas made the evening another "Pi Alph success."

In the merry month of May, 1926, the Classic of the Medical 
School took place at the Congress Hotel. The sentiment of every one 
present, and theirn umber was legion, was that in this event the Medics 
outdid themselves as they had never done before. The banquet 
was a rare feast, a gastric feat of no mean dimensions, and when all 
was said and done away with, that feeling of "well being" pervaded 
the entire assembly. As enticing as it was however, the culinary 
triumph was at least equalled, if not completely overshadowed by 
the entertainment of the evening, the long awaited and heavily press- 
agented Medical Follies, the brain child of the versatile and tireless 
Fred Stucker and his corps of able assistants. 

Combining the talent of the entire Medical Department, includ- 
ing real live choruses composed of dazzling beauties picked from the 
Nurses Training Schools of Mercy and St. Bernard's Hospitals, the 

production was the most comprehensive and successful of any ever produced at these 

Annual Medic Affairs. 

To enumerate the individual stars of the evening would be but to recount the host of 
names which are synonymous with artistic and humorous talent in the Medical Depart- 
ment. Dancing, singing, snappy repartee and orchestration of the highest order, all lent 
additional color and dash to this great triumph of amateur stagecraft. 

The evening ended with the singing of the Loyola Victory Song, which was rendered 
with rare artistry by the Medics home grown orchestra, and everyone tore themselves 
away from the most enjoyable evening of the Medics social year. The spirit of the Medics 
Student Faculty Banquet gains momentum with each new year. And this must surely be 
the culmination of many a years' gathering, for it was the unvaried opinion of all that the 
men in" charge had exceeded the fondest mark visioned, by this unique evening of uncom- 
mon entertainment.

John Waldron 


Immediately after the opening of the school year preparations 
for the Student Faculty Banquet, originated at the Arts department 
last year, were begun by a committee appointed by the Student 
Council and composed of John Waldron, chairman, Martin Griffin, 
Eugene Savage and Robert Hartnett. Arrangements were soon made. 
The Cameo Room of the Morrison Hotel was the site — a completely 
elegant hall of serene dignity. The position of Mr. Quinn O'Brien as 
speaker in the Civic Memorial Day two years ago made his choice as 
guest of the evening a happy one. 

On December 7th one hundred and fifty students and about 
twenty members of the faculty convened at the Cameo room where a 
luxurious dinner was served, and Preston Higgins entertained the 
eagerly receptive crowd with twinkling banjo solos. Entertainment 
lacked for no moment during the meal. The friendly vocal rivalry 

that soon was evident between the speakers' table and the remainder of the diners kept 

the spirit of good fellowship and joviality at its height. 

At the first sight of coffee, the toastmaster, John Waldron, banged the water glass 
for order and gave a brief resume of the origin and purpose of the annual "get-together." 
A number of the prominent students were asked for a few words, and with a brief intro- 
duction by Father Reiner, Mr. Quinn O'Brien, the speaker of the evening, rose and held 
the eyes and ears of the entire gathering in intense interest. The students have not for- 
gotten his words. It was he who fostered the movement for the establishment of a proper 
memorial for Father Marquette at 26th and Robey. The fire and enthusiasm which 
he showed in sponsoring the interest of Loyola were not long in lighting a similar spirit 
among the students. Loyola owes much to Mr. O'Brien for his display of generosity in 
her welfare. The student faculty banquet of this year had taken to itself a dignity and 
high spirited purpose that can well be followed in coming years.

On Saturday evening, April 23, the students, faculty and alumni of both the day and 
night law schools met, in a friendly, entirely unofficial and pleasant manner at the Bis- 
marck hotel. A spacious room had been reserved for this, one of the most important 
affairs of the year at the law school, and a feast the hardest-hearted judge would be com- 
pelled to beam upon was prepared for the lawyers. The guest of honor for the evening 
was the distinguished Senator Deneen, who entertained the banqueteers with a vivid and 
gripping description of what a lawyer should be. Present with him were Father William 
Agnew, S. J., President of the University, Mr. MacCormack, Dean of the Law School, 
and Mr. Rooney, Secretary, and all the members of the Law faculty. Father Agnew 
gave an interesting talk concerning the Catholic lawyer and what he should strive to be. 
The speakers were introduced by Charles Gallagher, who acted in the capacity of toast- 
master and performed his official duties to the pleasure of all. 

Returned to the "old days" were the alumni of the past five years, who attended in 
splendid numbers, adding greatly to the entertainment. To see the faculty in their 
"unofficial moments" were present one hundred and fifty or more members of the student 
body, who clearly voiced their approval and appreciation of the speeches it was their good 
fortune to hear. The entertainment of the evening was extended by performances ren- 
dered by a number of the gifted students, who kept the hours passing in agreeable rapidity 
with the latest and best in songs and some mighty fine playing of musical instruments. 

The committee on arrangements was headed by Charles Gallagher, and composed 
further of Mary Miller, Laurence Miller, Philip Conley, Austin Farrel and Dan McCar- 
thy. This committee is deserving of the most honorable mention for the time and 
effort they expended in the details of the banquet, for the fine entertainment they secured 
and for obtaining so distinguished a speaker as Senator Deneen for the occasion.

Following the precedent of the Faculty Banquet of last year, held at the Medical 
building and pronounced a decided success, the faculty of the entire University convened 
at the Bismarck Hotel on February 24. The purpose was a double one, primarily a pleas- 
ure gathering, but for the added and significant purpose of visiting the new downtown 
building, where open house was held by the students of Law, Commerce and Sociology. 

This banquet had the advantage of giving the professors the opportunity to become 
acquainted with their associates in other departments of the University. It is the only- 
chance the faculty have to gather in other than an official capacity, and all made great 
use of the occasion in exchanging the good will of the various departments. The meal 
was attended by jovial displays of friendship, and after a short, enlivened talk by Presi- 
dent Agnew the guests adjourned to the new building. 

The faculty then inspected the latest acquisition to the property of the University, 
noting its many fine improvements in efficiency and comfort over the old rooms in the 
Ashland Block. Every feature of this new home of the Loop schools was carefully and 
fully explained to the professors. 

After they had gone over the entire building and viewed its modern improvements, 
the unanimous opinion was expressed that with this added opportunity for the three 
departments of Law, Commerce and Sociology to become closer united, great things could 
be expected of them in the future, as their combined efforts, in many endeavors would 
bid fair to forge Loyola ahead even faster than she is advancing. 

The feeling was expressed that the annual Banquet of the Faculty was an establish- 
ed affair and judging from the past two an event worthy of looking forward to with ex- 
pectancy and pleasure. 

The faculty can justly claim to have shown the students a fine example of combining 
business with social pleasure and doing it well and enjoyably. 


Following the now time-honored custom, the Alumni Association on December 
twentieth tendered the members of the Loyola University Varsity and Freshmen football 
teams a banquet at the close of the pigskin season. The fact that the team had just com- 
pleted a brilliant and successful schedule intensified the congeniality of the affair; and the 
members of the Alumni Association, considering it quite an honor to act as hosts to "Roge 
and his men," turned out in unusually large numbers. 

The scene of the dinner was laid at the Fort Dearborn Athletic Club and festivities 
and speeches, which began at six thirty in the evening, lasted well on into the nite. "Gus" 
Bowe acted as toastmaster, and with him at the speakers' table were: Rev. Frederic 
Siedenburg, Coach Roge Kiley, Daniel A. Laughlin, president of the Alumni Association, 
Michael Ahearn, Joe Graber, Louis Sayre, and Rev. B. J. Quinn, the Director of Ath- 
letics. Each of these men paid his tributes to the members of the Varsity and to the 

The strains of the Fort Dearborn Athletic Club orchestra, pervading the atmosphere 
throughout the course of the evening, added to the success of the affair. 

Dan Laughlin, President of the Alumni Association, was awarded the honor of dis- 
tributing the sweaters and letters to the members of the Varsity team meriting them and 
the numerals to the freshmen team. 

Dan Lamont, famous on Loyola's gridiron and captain of the 1926 team, delivered a 
short talk which was followed by the election of next year's captain. The choice was 
Eddie Johnson, the plucky little quarterback, who for two years has piloted the Ramblers 
to victory. The members of the Alumni Association joined with the team and the guests 
present in wishing Eddie luck and success for the coming season, and the banquet ended 
with a display of fellowship such as is rarely seen outside of the gatherings of men who 
have gone through victory and defeat together.

In order that the graduates of the University might demonstrate in a practical man- 
ner, their whole hearted interest in the progress and expansion of the school and their 
genuine appreciation of the splendid parts played by the Rector, Rev. William H. Agnew, 
S. J., and Dean Frederic Siedenburg, S. J., of the Sociology Department in that develop- 
ment, the Alumni Association of Loyola University tendered a One-Hundred Dollar per 
plate Dinner to these worthy educators on Thursday, the twenty-eighth of April, at the 
Hotel La Salle. 

The dinner was a formal affair, and a galaxy of socially prominent Chicagoans at- 
tended. The occasion of the affair was the opening of the new Downtown College at 
28 N. Franklin Street. 

While listening to the symphonic strains of the Benson String Quartet, a sumptuous 
dinner was eaten, followed by a short program of talks. The Rev. Francis J. Magner, 
'07, gave the invocation and Mr. Joseph A. Connell, '86, acted as toastmaster. The ad- 
dresses were made by Peter Angsten, Payton Tuohy, and John A. Shannon who presented 
the Rector with a check for §10,000.00. 

Rev. Frederic Siedenburg, S. J., and the Very Rev. William W. Agnew, S. J., President 
of Loyola University, answered the addresses of the previous speakers, thanking those 
present for their generous contribution to the new school and expanding upon the work 
of the Jesuit faculty members and the needs of the University. 

After the talks were given the entire party adjourned to the new Downtown College 
at 28 N. Franklin St. for the purpose of inspecting the new quarters and enjoying the 
pleasure of a congenial smoker. 

The committee on arrangements consisted of Daniel A. Laughlin, Chairman, M. 
Malachy Foley, Thos. J. Reedy, Augustine J. Bowe, Louis T. Sayre, John A. Shannon, 
Payton J. Tuohy and George A. Lane, Jr.

On December 11th, the Commerce Club filled to capacity one of the largest banquet 
rooms of the City Club of Chicago with students and faculty members who were proud 
to feel they represented the first appearance of the Club in the social world. The dinner 
was one to tempt the fattest and most determined of dieters. 

Professor Howard Egan spoke interestingly upon the possibilities of the Club and 
the especial manner in which its purpose fits the program of the school. Father Walsh 
expressed the amazement of all in his own at the surprising popularity of the Club's first 
social effort, and was convinced that the Club will prove to be of great benefit to both 
the faculty and students. One of the outstanding lights of the evening was Father Sieden- 
berg's toast to the Dean. That the Club has been of great assistance to the athletic 
directors was pointed out by Coach Riley, who said he felt it would tend to stimulate 
enthusiasm in the reception of and participation in the various sports. 

John Grayson, discussing the future of the Club as its president, was followed by 
Dean Reedy, who delivered an inspirational speech to the students to fulfill his promise 
to Father Seidenberg. The Commerce Club, already well established and helpful to the 
school, has set another distinction upon itself by setting the precedent of this gathering 
of students and faculty into a congenial get-together group and spreading a feeling of 
fellowship and comradely goodwill that is without rivalry or precedent in the Commerce 
school and bids fair to grow with every year.

On October 30th the social curtain of the Sophomore lawyers ascended for the first 
time and exhibited to the rest of the student world the entry of the class into the realms 
of society. The Hotel La Salle became the stage, and the embryonic barristers portrayed 
the role of entertaining actors for the evening with remarkable merit. 

It was the first social enterprise of the class, and the lawyers had entrusted it to the 
direction of Joseph Hagstrom, who directed it with remarkable skill and aplomb. He 
secured the Hotel La Salle for the occasion; and skilled entertainers, from the stages of 
the best theaters in the city, who amused the diners with bits of interesting and modern 
song, dance and comedy hits. 

Among the speakers was Thomas Crane, highly esteemed class president-elect, who 
delivered his inaugural address in true oratorical style and Joseph Hagstrom, chairman 
of the Entertainment committee, who spoke with great vehemence upon the rising school 
spirit which had so lately made itself manifest in the sophomore department, as evidenced 
by the gathering that evening. 

John Daly, Stanley Cassidy and William Bellamy contributed the "local" talent of 
the entertaining, and the exceptional individual skill of each was clearly pronounced as 
the evening wore on into the wee hours of the morning unnoticed amidst the joy of the 
audience. Between the songs of both the class members and the entertainers, the spirits 
of all rose with the moments although thoroughly constrained with appropriate judicial 
sobriety, until those present rendered the verdict that the evening was indubitably the 
most thoroughly enjoyable union to be recorded this year. Retaining the distinguished 
air until the end, the curtain was rung down upon the initial social undertaking of the 
Sophomore class — an amazing success — by the final speaker of the evening, Mr. Thoss 
of La Salle fame.

are held the regular Friday morning devotions, the special Masses and 

also the Annual retreat, given in October.

The Chapel of the Administration Building. The student body has out- 
grown it for use for Masses and general devotions, but it is still the spot 
of many a visit and is the meeting place of the Sodality. The Sodality's 
Holy Hour, which closed Lent, was held here. 

Page 307 

W^^^^^^^^^^^^^J^^^^^^ 9 ^^^^ 


The Sodality ot Our Lady was founded at Loyola to further the devotion and 
reverence that accord to Her as the Mother of God among Catholic college students, 
who, naturally, by very virtue of their position, would be classed as her special proteges. 
It was a Divine command to honor and love the Mother of the Saviour, and the Sodality 
of Our Lady is the materialization of that command on the North Campus of Loyola 

Obviously, the Sodality, since it exists entirely as a student organization, and is 
voluntary in all its functions, is a true representation of the undergraduate devotion itself. 
It depends solely for its membership upon those students whose love for the Mother of 
God makes them willing to incur the difficulties that are accessory to the attendance 
of the meetings, since these are held at a particular hour when dinner and haste seem to 
be the primary thoughts. 

The officers of the Sodality were chosen early in the semester, and were formally 
installed immediately at the close of the Student Retreat of last fall, the attendant 
ceremonies being a most fitting close to this successful religious enterprise. 

Rev. Daniel Lord, S. J., because he is the general sodality director, administered 
the oaths of allegiance to the proclaimed "Special Regiment of the Queen's Guards." 
After Thomas J. Byrne, prefect of the Sodality, recited the act of Consecration, Father 
Lord praised the high Sodality spirit prevalent in the University. At this time, Father 
Lord took the opportunity to offer a prayer that held the student body enthralled expect- 
antly, to the effect that the regiment would form the nucleus of the spiritual life of the 

The officers installed were: Thomas Byrne. Prefect; Robert Hartnett, first assist-

ant; Frank Lodeski, second assistant; Thomas O'Malley, consultor-at-large; Joseph 
O'Reilly, secretary. The other officers were: William Bresingham, Edward Byrne, 
Maurice McCarthy, William Rafferty, William Connolly, Richard Zvetina, Frank Canary, 
Charles Stimming, James O'Brien, Frank Naphin, Willis Carpenter, Edward Bremner, 
Emmet Hogan, J. Francis Walsh and George Ray. 

The Sodality, in the past year, has been favored with an unusual degree of success. 
Its membership has increased to a comfortable number, without the aid of the usual 
run of advertising or suggestive medium. Its meetings are well attended by an assembly 
of students who are eager to be included in any activity that the Sodality may put 
forth. Its officers have worked consistently for its success, and with reassuring results. 
The committees have not been idle, and to this fact is due a large share of credit for the 
Sodality's marvelous vitality. 

The Eucharistic Committee was formed to sponsor and stimulate the interest in the 
participation of Communion by the student body as a weekly exercise, and the results 
accruing from their efforts over a given time have been highly indicative of success. As 
a further development of the idea, the various organizations have set aside certain days 
of the month, when they receive as a body. 

The Missions Committee was active for the most part in the collection of both 
materials and money for the use of the Fathers who are laboring in the pagan fields. An 
especially concerted effort was launched around Christmas time to collect old clothes, 
to be sent to the Christian Indians in the United States. 

The Publications Committee was prominent for the effort it made to bring about a 
better appreciation of Catholic literature among the youth of the college, and it has 
also obtained the co-operation of the student body at large in an increased sale of Catho- 
lic publications at the college. 

The devotion displayed by the students is largely responsible for the success of the 
Sodality, and for that they must be given acclaim. But the spectacle which it presents 
apart from any consideration of the Sodality as such is much more reassuring in that it 
brings out a concerted love by young American manhood of the Mother of God, whose 
image and name is synonymous with purity.

The Sodality of the Blessed Virgin Mary has been one of the most active organizations 
of Saint Bernard's School for Nurses. Feasts of the Blessed Virgin Mary, however, 
after those directed immediately to God, hold high place in Church ceremonials, forming 
a theme dear to every Catholic heart. 

The feast of the Immaculate Conception — Patronal Feast of the United States — 
recalls great prerogatives of the Blessed Mother and is celebrated annually by all Sodal- 
ists, as Patroness of the Sodality. We celebrate this feast to honor her in a special man- 
ner, as Mother of our Redeemer, bringing down upon ourselves and our school innumer- 
able graces for our salvation. The church points to her in all her liturgy, bringing us to 
the Son through His Mother, our Protectress. 

We, as her children, dedicate the Mass, Holy Communion and special devotions on 
the first Sunday of each month to our Blessed Mother. It is the constant aim of the 
Sodalists to imitate her example in spotlessness, sacrifice and obedience, together with 
becoming better, holier, and more practical nurses; thus extending the greater glory of 
God, by striving to make Him better known and loved by those souls which we come 
in contact with in a professional way. 

During the months of May and October, we honor our Blessed Mother by daily 
recitation of the Rosary during Mass. Our annual public novena for the feast of the 
Immaculate Conception closes with a high Mass and in the evening, we have a reception 
of members into the Sodality, followed by Benediction of the most Blessed Sacrament 
and a sermon. This beautiful feast carries with it another important event; the closing 
of the annual retreat which is always a splendid success. 

"The devotional section of our Sodality comprises a body of zealous workers, and 
novenas are made from time to time with great zeal and piety. The Sodalists are also

members of the "Sacred Heart League" and of "St. Joseph's Pious Union" for the dying. 
On every First Friday, each class spends one hour in adoration of the most Blessed 
Sacrament and are present at Holy Hour and Benediction in the evening. 

The Immaculate Conception choir is made up entirely of student nurses and at 
Christmas our "Rosa Mystica" Mass was one of the most beautiful ever rendered in our 
Chapel. The annual procession through the hospital following the midnight Mass, the 
singing of the "Adeste Fidelis" through the corridors and wards of the sick will long be 
remembered by every student nurse. 

To accomplish the purpose of our Sodality, also promoting the intellectual and 
social well-being of our members, we include features of a social nature. 

Our sociability section consists of a Committee which arranges for the entertainment 
of the Student body. The Christmas play given by the Juniors and Freshmen was one 
of the outstanding successes of the year. The participants, musicians, and readers 
displayed great talent and an enjoyable time was reported by all. The program com- 
mittee appreciated the large attendance of Sisters, and a delicious banquet was served 
by the Junior Class. 

Through our devotion to Mary, our Immaculate Mother, we have all felt a deeper 
longing to come closer to Jesus, her Son, and in consequence of this our Student body 
attend Mass and receive Holy Communion each morning. 

We sincerely thank our Sodality Director, Reverend Father Felician, C. P. P. S., 
for his fatherly interest, counsel and instructions; also, our dear, devoted Directress, Sister 
Helen Jarrell, R. X. Through her example where faith and love hold sway, she points 
to Heaven and then leads the way. Thus, we have learned to love God better day by 

We'll imitate Mary's example 
Of Charity, Purity and Love, 
And hover beneath her blue mantle 
When we've gone to our home — above. 

Christmas Eve 





During the past year the Maria Delia Strada lecture club has been exceptionally 
active in delivering their talks to large audiences throughout the city and neighboring 

The members started their activity immediately after the beginning of the school 
year when they gave a lecture on the Little Flower at Joliet, 111. From that time to the 
present they have been engaged practically every week, and have become quite popular 
in religious circles. Not only did they visit institutions within the city limits, but they 
extended their territory to La Grange, Lake Forest, River Forest, and Joliet, 111., show- 
ing that widespread interest in the organization has been thoroughly aroused. Among 
those who have been fortunate enough to hear the lectures this year were Rosary College, 
the Convent of the Cenacle, and various high schools, including Marywood, Josephinum, 
Loretto, Holy Ghost, Sacred Heart, and Immaculata of Wilmette, 111. They have been 
unanimous in their approval of the renditions and many of them have made arrange- 
ments to hear the new ones that are being prepared for next year. 

While the members are chiefly concerned with providing entertainment and instruc- 
tion for others, they themselves derive considerable valuable knowledge and training in 
the course of their work. Each man is carefully tutored by Father Mertz who is renowned 
for his ability as an orator and lecturer. The careful manner in which he must study 
his subject sharpens his powers of analysis and composition, providing him, at the 
same time, with inspiring material on various beautiful topics. 

The members have shown their appreciation for Father Mertz's assistance by 
donating a large sum to the chapel fund. Their activity this year has added over five 
hundred dollars to the credit of the Lady of the Wayside Chapel, and they are confident 
of a larger donation in the next twelve months.

In response to the invitation of His Holiness, Pius XI, students of the Arts Depart- 
ment joined in the Aloysian Pilgrimage to Rome last December. The object of the visit 
to Rome was to revivify and strengthen in the hearts of the Jesuit students who partici- 
pated in the journey and in the hearts of their fellow students who wished them "Bon 
Voyage" the influence of the example of St. Aloysius as the patron of youth. 

On December 8th the Loyola group united with over thirty students from other 
Jesuit colleges and high schools in the Missouri Province and set out for Niagara Falls. 
They sailed from New York three days later. Arriving at Cherbourg, continuing through 
Lisieux, the birth-place of the Little Flower, the happy travelers came to Paris in time to 
spend a day in viewing what were the battle-fields of the World War and another day in 
the halls and gardens of the Palace at Versailles. 

The itinerary brought them thence to Lourdes, then along the French Riviera to 
Rome, where they arrived on Christmas Eve. The week between Christmas Day and 
New Year's was completely absorbed in "doing" Rome and in attending the Aloysian 
services which were celebrated in several of the mammoth temples of Catholics worship 
for which Rome is renowned. It was the unusual good fortune of the pilgrims to attend 
Holy Mass celebrated by the Holy Father both in a Vatican chapel and in St. Peter's 
itself, the latter an extremely rare occasion. Besides this they enjoyed the great privilege 
of a personal audience with the Pope. 

The reception of the pilgrims by the General of the Jesuit Order was one of the most 
delightful treats of the entire tour. 

From Rome the route followed lead to London, where ship was boarded January, 
1927. Rev. Wm. A. Agnew, S. J., President of the University, greeted a crowd of young 
men who were rather happy to tread the soil of America and accompanied them to Wash- 
ington, D. C, where the last of the numberless high lights of the tour, the visit to the 
President, took place.

James J. Mertz, S. J. 

When the story of Maria Delia Strada is retailed, it 
weaves itself not so much into the mere mediocrity of a mass 
of history and data concerning a building, but it tends to por- 
tray the dynamic force and consuming personality that is 
the sponsor of the whole thing. The hand of the Chapel's 
dearest friend, and most earnest supporter, Father James 
Mertz, S. J., is discernible in the plans and realizations of this 
great work, and all through the story of Maria Delia Strada 
runs the thin yet firm golden thread that is his person, and the 
guiding power in the venture. 

The need of the Chapel is, and has been, apparent for 
many years. The chapel built in the Administration building 
was found to be inadequate soon after Loyola began the growth 
that has placed it in its present sunny place in the educational 
world. With the influx of students in ever increasing numbers, 
the Campus chapel was abandoned and Mass was celebrated 
in the magnificent and beautiful Saint Ignatius Church. 
This church, while a marvel of ecclesiastical splendor, and 
spacious beyond demand, lacked the intangible yet vital something that only a Campus 
Chapel can possess. This something is the warm and personal aspect that the Campus 
chapel has for the student, who realizes it as a definite part of the school, and includes 
it in the favored group that warrant his love as Alma Mater. 

This year the Sodality has enjoyed an unprecedented activity, and its members have 
increased in numbers, with a visible heightening of the devotion to the Blessed Virgin. 

The communion rail is crowded at every Friday mass, and the general student inter- 
est in tilings devotional has been noticeably on the increase. Today, the Sodality is 
associated with almost every campus activity, and its influence for good is quite 
conspicuous. The fact evidenced by the Sodality's consistent growth, namely that there 
is a potential devotion of great magnitude to the Mother of God within the hearts of the 
Loyolans, would of itself demand a suitable edifice for worship near at hand. This edi- 
fice would be a haven for those who love and reverence Our Lady of the Wayside, and a 
material offering to her sacred memory. 

Upon the subject of the chapel, there is unanimous assent among the student body. 
They have sought to make the chapel just as much their own as is possible, and have 
evinced a keen interest in the work relevant to its realization. Students have been con- 
spicuous in the chapel drive as lecturers, speakers and committeemen, and their efforts 
have taken from the shoulders of Fr. Mertz many of the tasks that formerly taxed this 
willing worker. They have, and they are, ready to support him when a financial need 
arises. They are daily assisting him with prayer, which is in answer to one of his most 
consistent appeals. They are quite determined that when the chapel of Our Lady of the 
Wayside rises on the campus, their efforts shall be blended into the glory of its accom- 

Father Mertz was among those who first discerned the need, and accordingly directed 
his efforts into a drive to bring about the solution of the problem by building a chapel in 
the immediate confines of the campus. Just how far Father Mertz has gone in his efforts 
can be seen in the present status of the chapel. 

The problem that held foremost in the minds of those who were interested in the 
chapel, and were working towards its ultimate perfection, was the raising of the necessary 
funds. The incidental details such as artists and architects' conceptions and the multi- 
tude of other things that always attach to a project of this kind were in proportion very 

Page Slh 

kr 6 ?^ 


Lay committees of people who realized Loyola's need and were generous enough to 
devote their time and energies to the matter were formed, and from their labors among 
their respective groups was realized much material aid. Interested Catholic laymen 
gave their spiritual and financial support with a good will that was indeed surprising, and 
in a short time the outlook became a very promising one. The work continued with the 
help of these laymen and with steadily augmenting results. 

The chapel derives its name from a place of worship in Rome of a similar name. 
This grotto of Our Lady of the Wayside in Rome was the favored retreat of Saint Igna- 
tius, the founder of the Jesuit Order, and it is fitting and to the point that the Chapel 
at Loyola take this title. It embraces at once the devotion that the beloved Saint Igna- 
tius held for the Mother of God, and since he is the model set up for the Catholic youth 
of today, the incorporation of his memory into the theme of the chapel is a fitting move. 

The chapel, when it becomes an integral part, both of the campus and the student's 
spiritual life, will serve a twofold purpose. It will exist primarily as a place where vener- 
ation can be effected to the Mother of God, in meditation and in prayer. It will at the 
same time bring about a more concerted devotion to the Blessed Virgin, and the ideals 
for which she stands, namely pure and wholesome manhood. Secondly, it will serve as a 
firm tie upon the hearts of the departed students, binding them to their dulcet freshman 
days with a bond a thousand times stronger than could be effected by an appeal to that 
purely transient emotion called school spirit. More than anything, however, it will be 
the means of drawing countless souls closer to God by consistent and intimate devotion. 
That result, a most glorious harvest of young souls, is the flowering achievement toward 
which the chapel attains.

Daniel A. Lord, 

r Loyola, since it is a Catholic University, would, as a matter of 

•^ course, be resplendent in devotions to the Sacred Heart, the Blessed 

Virgin and the Saints. The school calendar is not infrequently graced 
by Holy days of the Church and clays upon which we honor the memory 
of our early heroes. Under the heading of student devotions these 
instances would probably be quite fitting, but it is more appropriate 
to list them as days of general devotion, since they are observed not 
only locally, but rather are world-wide in character. There is another 
array of devotions, however, that are specifically student-devotional 
in form. Most prominent among these instances during the year just 
passed are the Gorman Mass, The Retreat of the Arts and Sciences 
Department, the Mass of the Holy Ghost, and the Cudahy Mass. 

Religious activities of the school year were opened when the 
students of the College of Arts and Sciences attended the Mass of the Holy Ghost, in 
Saint Ignatius' church. On this occasion, Solemn High Mass was celebrated by Father 
Agnew, President of the University, while the entire student body sang. Father Maho- 
wald delivered an inspiring sermon to the assembled congregation, the keynote of which 
was a warning against the dangers of the type of educational system that would endeavor 
to keep the realisation of God completely from the human mind. 

The ceremony was lent an added solemnity by the presence on the altar of six priests 
and twelve servers. The senior class, fully arrayed in caps and gowns, occupied the 
front section of the church, and received communion in a body. This excellent example 
was followed by a goodly number of the members of the lower classes. The Mass of the 
Holy Ghost was brought to an impressive close when the students sang the Loyolan's 
Loyalty hymn. 

The Gorman Mass was celebrated in honor of the memory of "Bud" Gorman, the 
captain of the Varsity football squad, who met an untimely but noble death in an heroic

attempt to save the life of another. The Gorman Mass was a Solemn High, and was 
sung by the student body, among which were "Bud's" classmates and friends. The 
parents and brothers of the deceased were present at the Mass. A beautiful and in- 
spiring sermon by Father Mertz, touching on the fineness of the boy's life and the heroism 
of his death closed the ceremony. 

The next event of ecclesiastical note in the lives of the Loyolans was the Annual Re- 
treat of the Arts and Sciences Department, which lasted for three days, from the 19th 
to the 22nd of October. This Retreat constituted the most successful religious enterprise 
of that nature ever attended by the students of the North Campus. 

This year the sermons were delivered by the Rev. Father Daniel A. Lord, a former 
student of Saint Ignatius College, and a renowned literary and dramatic personage. Never 
before had a speaker received such extraordinary interest as was manifested by a body of 
four hundred and fifty students in Father Lord's lectures. His subjects were so well 
selected that no one could fail to realize their importance; the illustrations he presented 
were so concise that their connection and significance were immediately apparent; his 
delivery was sufficiently forceful to hold the undivided attention of every listener. Father 
Lord considered in particular the beautiful good fortune of having a vocation and the 
need of an attachment to God; and in addition to inspiring many to the priesthood he 
enrolled the entire student body in the magnificent army of Christ the King and re- 
ceived from them a vcw of allegiance to Him. 

All the services of the Retreat were conducted in Saint Ignatius Church, which is 
noted for its liturgical beauty and splendidness of appointment. 

On Wednesday, November 4th, the faculty and Student body of the North Campus 
turned from their scholastic duties for a time to pay homage to Michael Cudahy, the 
donor of the Cudahy Science Hall on this campus. A solemn High Mass was celebrated 
in Sunt Ignatius church by Father Agnew, president of the university. Following the 
Mass, Father Reiner, Dean of the Arts and Science Department, delivered a short 
eulogy on Mr. Cudahy. He urged the students to make use of the Hall in the way the 
donor wished it to be used. Mr. Edward Cudahy and wife, brother of Michael Cudahy, 
attende ' the Mass.

Broadly speaking, Loyola was represented at each and every 
demonstration that took place during this greatest of all religious 
Convocations. Its Dean was prominent in many of the functions, 
its president officiated at the Solemn High Mass celebrated on the 
third day of its progress. Its professors addressed the assemblages 
of pilgrims in different churches and points of interest of the Con- 
gress and its student body was truly represented on the occasion 
of Higher Education Day. 

The part that the students played was especially notable in 
view of the fact that most of them had returned to their homes and 
were recalled by their love for the Eucharistic King to make any 
sacrifices that might ensue. 

On Wednesday morning, June 23rd, the Loyola University 
students who were to participate in the activities of the day assem- 
bled in the early morn at Soldiers Field, in accordance with instruc- 
tions that had been given to them by the Dean. They wore the 
Eucharistic insignia, and upon their arrival at the Stadium, were 
given the Loyola colors, which consisted of a maroon and gold sash. 
Shortly after the youths of the schools and colleges from all over the Catholic world were 
in their alloted section of the crowded field, the American flag was raised, and the great 
sea of youthful faces were upturned as they sang the Star Spangled Banner and the song 
of welcome. Cardinal Dougherty of Philadelphia then addressed them, followed by 
Sir Joseph Scott, K. S. G., of Los Angeles. Cardinal Czernoch of Hungary and Arch- 
bishop Gauthier of Montreal were the other ecclesiastical speakers before the Mass. 
Bishop Hoban, auxiliary bishop of Chicago, was the celebrant ot the Mass and the

sermon was preached by Archbishop Dowling of Saint Paul. 

The Mass of Saint Francis was the most beautiful part of the 
day's ceremony. The voices of the thousands assembled there to 
pay homage to their Lord, as they rose above the gold-domed 
baldachino, were worthy of the poet's supreme effort. To even the 
stalwart policeman on duty it brought a strange mistiness of eye. 
The song of the Mass of Saint Francis is still sung in our Friday 
morning Masses, and it is truly the most beautiful souvenir of the 
Congress that we could hope to possess, embodying as it does the 
sincere expression of our love for our Lord, mellowed in the amber 
of countless years. 

After the Mass, Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament took 
place. The entire assemblage of students then arranged them- 
selves in military formation, and marched past the Cardinal's 
reviewing stand, each school hoisting into the breeze its own 
insignia and banners. Thus ended Higher Education Day, a most 
glorious day for the Catholic youth of the entire world. 

Loyola played a very prominent part in the affairs at Munde- 
lein. A great many of the students attended the ceremonies there, 

and the faculty were a part of these ceremonies. The Loyola Medical School had exclusive 
and complete charge of all Emergency units, medical tents and nurses' corps. On 
account of the vast throng that surged over the scene of the closing of the Congress, 
the medical reserves were taxed to their utmost. At the stations where the countless 
pilgrims were embarking on their homeward journey, the services of both the priests 
and the students were called into play to alleviate the confusion that existed. 

Loyola was host to visiting delegations from Loyola University of New Orleans, 
and Holy Cross College. They were treated with characteristic Loyolan hospitality, and 
every effort was made to make their stay a pleasant one. On Thursday, June 24th, the 
Congress closed, and Loyolans and all others present on that memorable day were wit- 
nesses to the finale of the greatest religious demonstration of all times.

Henri Philip McCann, S. 0. C, K., Ph. D.,B. V. D., Dean 

To the editors of this issue of the Looney Loyolan I am 
exceedingly grateful for the opportunity afforded by its more 
or less yearly publication of perpetuating in graphic summary the 
salient events of the most prosperous year my Department of 
Engineering department has enjoyed. But a few days ago, as I 
was inspecting the operation of some of the magnificent engineer- 
ing apparatus with which our Engineering Hall is equipped, and 
which performs such a signal service to the neighborhood during 
the frigid months of winter, the thought fell to me of how greatly 
my teaching will benefit the students in after life. We feel that 
we are rendering a service to the world and the community by our 
constant application of the principles of education for which we 
have ever stood firm. Now I sincerely hope that the perusal of 
this section and my picture will give the students as much pleas- 
ure and profit as it does me. 



L. D. Renee, M. D., R. 0. T. C, S. W. A. A"., Dean 

Being the only Egyptian who presides as Dean of a School of 
Foreign Service in this great Country, I feel greatly surrounded 
on this occasion. Please do not be alarmed, I always feel that way 
on occasions of this nature. I think the Year Book is a wonderful 
thing, and I like the idea of having it published annually. I dis- 
tinctly remember my childhood days in Egypt. I was wont to 
skim over the burning sands on my trusty camel, "El Bozo," and 
scan as I skimmed, the pages of my Alma Mater's year book. 
How I would chuckle, as I thought of the endless hours the stone 
cutters had put in on that Papyrus. Let me construe myself 
correctly, that was the year of the Papyrus Printer's walkout and 
the Stone cutters had been pressed into service for the editing 
of our book. However I wander, and this is neither hither nor yon. 
I believe the Foreign Service Students of today are younger than they were twenty 
years ago, that is I mean they will be, or rather their ancestors, that is their fore fathers, 
I mean they won't or rather the percentage wasn't so gross, oh darn, what I mean to 
say is that there are numberless people dying now who have never done so before. 

In the future we hope to have larger classes, that is, by having no graduation exercises 
for two or three years, I can easily see how our Senior Class will be three times its size. 
We hope in this way to give College Circles a square deal. 

In closing, let me wish the Editors of the "Looney Loyolan," a happy birthday and 
allow me to announce that in the future we shall have Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 
immediately following Monday, Wednesday and Tuesday, as previously arranged by 
mutual consent of the Calendar Committee, and the Conjoined Committee on the Revi- 
sion and Recapitulation of Date nights, East of the Rockies, $4.00 in Canada.

Aloysius Rameses Michelson, K. A., B. Y. 0., LL. D., F. A. C. S., Dean 

When I first came to Loyola University four years ago, 
after leaving with much regret and more compulsion my posi- 
tion at Lane Technical High School, where I was Prefect of 
Discipline and Head of the Department of Carpet-tacking 
for six years, I found a Department of Architecture well on 
its feet, but lacking in many of the essentials which go to make 
up a complete school of Architecture. During the time of my 
deanship I have endeavored to build up a teaching organization 
second to none, and at present my Class "A" faculty have the 
splendid record of never having smashed their own or any 
student's thumb. 

Doctor Kearns, my able associate on the Board of Trustees, 
has filled with honor and credit his position of Dean of Men 
during the past year and has lent a guiding hand to many a 
student caught in the throes of a nail proposition. To him I 
feel that, second only to myself, is due credit for the splendid 
development in the scholarship of the school, a scholarship so splendid that this year our 
graduates secured one interneship out of three hundred offered at the construction of the 
new Public Bathhouse. The splendid record of so many of our alumni, such as Shorty 
Fernekes, Judd Gray and many other figures so prominently before the public eye at the 
present time. 

Truly the future is auspicious. Let me extend my heartiest felicitations to all the 
students and to the men of the other departments who have so nobly cooperated with me. 



Ignatius Loyola Bastinado, P. D. Q., S. 0. S., Lift. B., R. N., Dean 

Being the Dean of the Agricultural College and a man 
of action, I am indeed well pleased with the progress which our 
department is making. In a few years when the acquisition 
of a number of buildings on our campus will necessitate the 
expansion of the greensward, the department will reach its 
peak, and I feel assured that our splendid new building will serve 
as a lofty inspiration to the beautiful and orderly keeping of 
its grounds. It is then that the students of plucky thumbs and 
index fingers will delve into their work with a zeal and ambition 
indicative of the ideals and splendid qualities of their dean. 

I was appointed to the task of reorganizing the weed- 
covered department of the University and, and having assumed 
a burden of uncommon difficulty, have, with quite uncommon 
energy and skill during the brief period of fifteen years builded 
a greening lea of extraordinary greenness and softness, which I 
trust will be a perpetual monument to my efforts and prowess 
as Dean of this, the School of Agriculture.

Student Council (Medical College) 

This is the Committee on Student Control. 
They have done much, throughout the year, 
toward keeping the student situation well in 
hand. The Committee is a standing one, as can 
readily be seen, and has complete power over 
the conduct of the students, that is theoretically. 
Rules are made by this body, for guidance of 
students who wish to be wayward, but who are 
uncertain as to how rules are to be broken. The 
rules for Student conduct, which have been 
drawn up by this Committee, follow in sequence: 

1. Students must attend all classes regularly, 
except in the event of their being sick, sullen, 
suspicious, or asleep. 

2. Smoking is not permitted, unless the stu- 
dent is alone or in the company of other students. 

3. Professors must be recognized on the 
Campus, and treated as such. 

4. Eatables, such as sandwiches, pies, small 
steaks, soups and salads, may not be brought to 

the Lecture Room, unless the Professor is to be asked to partake. 

5. Cheating during examination is frowned upon, as the slamming of book covers 
is annoying and distracts the attention of those who are not fast enough. 

6. Tuition must be paid in advance, and in American money. Money orders and 
stamps not accepted. 

T. Students are requested not to frequent Night Clubs and Dance Palaces about the 
city, unless for purposes of study and observation. 

8. The above rules must be obeyed except when possible. 

Student Council (Art College) 

The Student Council is indeed an imposing 
array of great students. Through them, much to 
their delight, many regulations have been im- 
posed upon the students. The Intercollegiate 
English Contest which was recently perpetrated 
was one of the most glaring evidences of the 
Council's activities. 

In the above picture, which was snapped 
just as the Council was entertaining a motion 
condemning an act of vandalism on the part of 
a freshman, said freshman having just hit the 
dean in the eye with a snowball, the officers, 
reading from left to right, are as follows: Daniel- 
opolos Buckley, Exchequer of Rolls, Paulus 
Reedovitch, Reader of Complaints, Wellesley 
Carpenter, Addtaker, Francisco Loedski, Water 
Boy, Frankopot Farrell, Cheerleader, Will Bull- 
connolly, Jester Chimaera, Reporter. Student 
Councils may come and go, but from the looks of 
the scholastic standing of the present incumbents, this one will go on forever.

The Debaters have enjoyed a very successful season. In 
their Debate with the Sophol College Team, they won, two 
falls out of three. The subject was very fitting and read as 
follows, "Who threw the overalls in McGoorty's Welsh 
Rarebit?" Emil Emery, the first affirmative for the "Loons" 
pointed out that although the overalls had been thrown in 
the Rarebit, it had not been done maliciously. The judges 
protested that this was beside the point and Emil went to 
the mat with two of them, it being several minutes before 
they could be separated. In the meanwhile Clarence Cadenza, 
second negative for Sophol College, had swallowed a piece of 
ice which resided in the pitcher of water, and had a number 
of convulsions on the platform, while his partners were de- 
livering forceful arguments, to the effect that the Overalls could probably be considered 
as a proper ingredient for the Rarebit. Consensus of opinion was to the contrary however, 
and the arguments were thrown out. One of the affirmative debaters who had arrived 
late was ejected in company with the arguments and protested that he felt very much 
put out. The decision of the judges was three to nothing in favor of Sophol College, but 
the Loons were considered as having achieved a moral victory, owing to the fact that they 
retained possession of the Rarebit and sold the overalls for a nominal sum. 

The remainder of the season was very much similar, one defeat after another being 
registered against the "Loons." They were very cheerful in defeat, and unusually dumb 
in debate. 


The membership was limited to three members, as it 
was thought that this would make it rather odd. Many 
pictures were taken throughout the year, but some trouble was 
experienced due to the fact that they all came out as negatives. 
This was rather unexplainable, but since there was no plausi- 
ble reason for it, the ardor of the Camerareers was undamp- 

Pictures of many rare animals were obtained, and one 
especially deserving of mention was that of a Wampus, a 
small fur-bearing animal, sometimes very beautiful, but 
often coy and hard to manage. One picture, of a double- 
chinned flying Oscillator, was snapped and enlarged and now 
hangs in the main entrance of the boiler room, by special 

The Club created a rather novel way of making money for their friends. By taking 
pictures of their bankrolls and having then enlarged, they found that although the prin- 
cipal remained the same, the interest was greater, and the psychological coefficient was 
enlarged upon in several instances. 

For next year, many plans have been made, and many prospective members have 
been considered. Only those who own cameras or who can borrow one, are eligible for 
membership. There are no dues and no officers, the club being self supporting and not 
politically inclined.

Thaddeus Than\topsis 

For many years the Athletic Committee 
had felt the need of a real hot Cheer 
Leader. The coming of Thaddeus Thana- 
topsis settled the problem, once and for 
all. "Thad," as he is affectionately called, 
has earned the cognomen of "The Man 
behind the Gun." That's the way he 
gets them to cheer. 

During the game with Ignorance Col- 
lege he established himself as the cheer 
leader par excellence, when he shot three 
lusty-Freshmen in the south Section, for 
refusing to shovel coal for the "Loco- 
motive" which was in progress. The 
south sections were later repaired success- 
fully, with the aid of a medical riveter. 

Thaddeus is a rather winsome chap, and 
very shy and reserved, except on occasion 
when he becomes enraged and shows his 
teeth. He has a cold in his head, but 
you'd never know it unless he stood in the 
light. As a student he has had marked 
success, never having been caught with 
the correct answer to a question which 
drifted his way. He has great plans for 
the future, his main ambition being to 
officiate as cook on a Pullman Diner, and 
find out just how the squares on griddle 
cakes are computed and marked off. 
We're all for "Thad." 

Through all his college days he has been 
popular with the men, women and deans. 
He has "it" and his magnetic personality 
literally drags cheerg out of the screaming 
crowds. To us he has always been a 
source of wonder. Yes; we wonder how 
he happened. 

Page 36U 

Holleran Yell 

This year we will lose a man who for 
sixteen years has served us faithfully in 
our cheering section. When good old 
"Holl" leaves, we will lose the most agile 
and lusty cheerleader we ever had, and 
the easiest 250 bucks our faculty ever had. 
If "Holl" is as successful getting cheers 
out of the world as he did out of us-, he 
will either be a second Mussolini or a 
world-renowned Sande in a couple of 
years. On his entrance into the Univer- 
sity, four fraternities, all on the verge of 
financial disaster, rushed him, and after a 
fierce battle the Goodly Poppa Delta 
Flush boys, succeeded in dragging him, 
broken and bleeding, to their house, 
where with great pomp and ceremony, 
they nailed a huge pledge pin on his 
wooden leg so he wouldn't lose it. Much 
trouble was caused by this incident later 
due to the fact that one day, while carry- 
ing a quart of milk in his watch pocket, 
the bottle broke and the milk running 
down his wooden leg, got his pledge pin 
wet and rusted it on. The only thing to 
do was to have his leg sawed off. This 
was accomplished, but when he had 
another leg put on, it was slightly shorter 
than the first and consequently caused 
him to limp. The limp being on the right 
side caused his left jawbone to sag which 
in turn drew his lip down and gave the 
impression that he was scowling. Rather 
than carry a noticeable scowl through 
life with him, he grew a large crop of 
alfalfa, which explains his appearance in 
the picture. 


Our Snappy Backfield in a Workout 
Below them is Our "Stonewall" Line 


The "L" pass was used with telling effect in this encounter, as the Loons arrived on 
the field early, and ran off a few touchdowns in advance, having checked their horses 
with the Bursar. At game time, the stands were packed with "Hot-Dogs," that is, the 
Hot-dog Stands were. Both teams arrived on the field in knee length, "Plus-fours." 
The Toughs were attired in Georgette Crepe shirtwaists and light tan oxfords. Shoe laces 
were not used by either team. Finally a nearby factory whistle blew and the game was 
on, but one of the Loon's fullbacks was off-side, so the play was censored and the author 
clapped in jail. He wasn't clapping because he was in jail, but because he knew that now 
his play would be a success. 

On the first play, the referee held the ball and called for new signals, but as the local 
supply was exhausted, he was forced to allow the game to proceed with old ones. As the 
whistle blew the second time, Gorges Fondazzo, a Swedish left tackle, evaded the play 
and escaped down the field with the signals in his hip pocket. Arriving at the goal post 
he relaxed and made a touchdown, and placing it in a small crate, labelled "Not to be 
opened until Xmas," he turned to the opposing team with a sullen smirk, muttered, 
"I may not be a Volcano, but I'm a neat little Crater." 

The second half was a repetition of the first, with the Loon's marching down the field 
on straight formations. The "In" formation was used but twice and on one of these 
occasions the operator refused to answer and the play was disqualified for lack of a second. 
Touchdown after touchdown was made and finally the pile became so large that it 
toppled over and killed two strange players who were watching the game in a Parachute. 

The final score was somewhat oneside, but gives no indication of the ferocity with 
which the three spectators battled to get out of the stands when the final whistle blew.

The Proud Leader of the Brawl and His Beautiful Escort 


On the evening of the 15th, the combined Senior Class turned out for the Classic of 
the year. The North Side Turner Hall was one blaze of glory. The Orchestra was on 
hand well in advance of the crowd, and were well dressed and clean shaven for the most 
part. A new feature was added here, in the shape and form of a Harpist, who passed 
under the monicker of Emil McGoorty. He was well informed on cadenza and rhythm 
and did much to enliven the more torrid passages of the prevalent dance selections. 

As the assemblage began to arrive, the male escort especially appeared somewhat 
moribund. This however was most marked at the entrance, when they were being sep- 
arated from their kopecks, and soon wore off as the Spirits of the occasion permeated 
them more sincerely. 

The Grand March was a triumph of stupidity. The leader appeared somewhat 
befuddled and insisted on walking in front of his lady friend, who was making eyes at the 
Orchestra in general. The joyous couples tripped merrily along, and the traffic was 
well managed, with the exception of a few minor instances, where the Beau Brummels 
insisted on scraping their feet along the floor and hissing the leader. 

After the march was over, Punches were exchanged, and the Leader who was cross- 
eyed since birth, brought out a camp chair and sat down. This was about all the lounging 
which could be done, as the management had discreetly removed the soft wood benches 
which ordinarily decorated the hall. At last the Tournament ended, as the orchestra 
had left early, and it was growing rather late, it being almost ten thirty. The dancers 
put on their collective hat and left the Brawl flat to return home and dream — of the 
coming election. 

No money was made on the affair, but since all present enjoyed the evening, the 
Committee felt well rewarded with the new overcoats which had been left in the Check

Early in the summer of 1925, before the 
annual jam of students started their march 
toward registration at the great and bee-ooo- 
tiful Arts Department of Loyola University, a 
young lady stumbled briskly up the stairs of 
the Cudahy Building and fell into the Regis- 
trar's office and boldly asked for a registration 
blank. The Registrar stepped up, and after 
smiling loudly for about three minutes, he 

"My dear young lady, if you wear ordinary 
shin guards under, you will greatly add to your 
comfort when caught reading the headlines on 
a sidewalk newsstand, during a rush hour on 
State Street, and by that I mean to say that 
we have no coeducation — or even a department 
for women in this college." 

At this the Registrar turned to get a breath 
of fresh air, for the would-be coed was four out 
of five. 

Before he could turn back, he heard a loud 
crash. The door bearing its imposing heading 
"110. Registrar. Walk in," slammed shut 
amid a tinkle of glass and the heartbroken girl 
fell down the stairs. She was picked up some 
three weeks later by Ignatius and sent home, 
express collect. The last we heard of her, she 
was trying to matriculate at the Chicago 
Registered School for Bridesmaids. 


For the first time in its short existence the 
Looney Loyolan ceases to be satirical and here 
proposes to its readers — if any have waded this 
far — a real problem in guessing. 

The picture shown above was snapped in the 
dim and distant past, and the two gentlemen 
who occupy the foreground have passed through 
many and varied changes of fortune and clime, 
but within the last few years the wiles of fate 
have brought them together again, and to- 
gether in more influential positions than they 
occupied at that time. 

Who are they? Can you guess? You may 
be able to discover the identity of the person 
on the right, but we will award almost any 
prize desired or obtainable to the person infor- 
ming us of the identity of his comrade. We didn't 
know ourselves until some one in authority 
told us, and then we found it hard to believe it. 

For your information we will say that the 
picture was taken in St. Louis quite a few 
years ago, that one of the personages pictured 
above was pastor of a church there and that 
his companion was his assistant. The occasion 
is First Communion Day, as the charming 
young ladies in the background attest. 

Who are they? We will give you one more 
hint, the one who was the subordinate then is 
now the superior. Guess who! 

C'mon, who are they?

It takes 64 muscles of the face to make a frown, and only thirteen to make a smile. 
Why work overtime? 

The Loyolan is some invention, 
The school gets all the fame, 
The printer gets all the money, 
And the staff gets all the blame. 


Experience is what we get while we're looking for something else. 

"You know, Pat, Louie makes quite a bit of money off we nurses." 
"Yes, but not off the chewing gum he sells us." 

"How's the patient in 201?" 
"He is now convalescing." 
"I'll wait 'till he's through." 

"Schedule me for two tonsilectomies to-morrow." 
"How many Doctor?" 
"Two — one on each side." 

"How many sets of teeth have we?" 
"Three; permanent, temporary and false."

The editors wish to extend their sincerest thanks to those of 
their personal and business friends who helped to make this book 
what it is. A special debt of gratitude is due Miss Mary Loretto 
Brannan whose timely and excellent art work on the division pages 
thruout the volume filled an urgent need. To Mr. Morton Zabel 
the editors are much indebted for his kindly advice and assistance 
on many an occasion. Also to those men, not in any way connected 
with the staff, who gave so generously of their time and effort to 
supply copy for the Loyolan, many thanks are due. 

Mr. Mattison, of the Standard Photo-Engraving Company, 
has by his constant and able direction, aid and encouragement 
proved himself a real friend as well as a business man of uncommon 
ability. To him the staff owes a debt of gratitude which it will 
find difficult to repay; as also to Rogers Printing Company and to 
the Morrison Studio, both of which have helped so materially to 
make the Loyolan the success we hope it is.

Nine Out of Ten Have It 

Nearly every person has that longing, that craving, for some food 
or some beverage that -will "Hit the spot." 

Nearly everyone has said, "I want something to eat but I don't 
know what I ■want." 

That longing can be satisfied through the use of Guasti Cooking 
Sherry in the preparation of cooked foods and through the use of 
Guasti Red or White Syrup in the preparation of ices and beverages. 

If you don't believe it write to the 

Italian Vineyard Company 

400 W. Kinzie St., Chicago, Illinois 

for a sample can of our Syrup, or ask for our Cooking Sherry recipe 
book and try our products. 

We know the Grape business. We have been in it for nearly 50 
years. We know how to blend grapes. We have 5,000 acres of grapes 
to select from for our quality products. 

A hot bird and a cold bottle have not lost their charm. Flavored 
■with these wonderful products the old appeal will be enhanced.

We buy second-hand students' law books 
and would welcome your list of such books 
should you have any to dispose of. By sell- 
ing or trading your books when particular 
courses are finished for such as you need 
when a new term or semester begins, you 
can reduce your expenses while at law 
school. Students' books are of no use in 
practice. Write or phone us whenever you 
want to dispose of your books. 

Let us carry the risk of changes in books 
on account of new editions and the adoption 
of other books than you have on the part 
of the faculty. When you get stuck with a 
book out of use, is is your worry; when we 
get stuck, you should worry! Dispose of 
your books as the courses are finished. Don't 
wait until three years have passed. We can 
tell you why students* books are useless in

Five More CDXsfor U.S.Nary 

Which Means 25 U. S. Ships Equipped 
with this Victor Dental X-Ray Unit 

IN March, 1925, the U. S. Navy placed its initial order for 
twenty Victor "CDX" Dental X-Ray Units, for installation 
on the-largest ships in the fleet. 

In Novembejv-i'926, an order was placed for five more — 
after the first twenty had been in use well over a year. 

We feel justified in considering this second order eloquent 
proof of the efficiency of the "CDX," and its adaptability to 
any unusual requirements in dental radiography. 

Write for Bulletin 260, describing fully this "safety" outfit.
