We Honor... 

When Shakespeare wrote, late in the sixteenth century, of 
King Henry IV, Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown, little 
did he know, then, that he was purporting a thesis which was 
to summarize the life of the modern day executive. Today's 
fast pace, coupled with the pressures of economic control and 
the desire for corporate survival, has made the lot of this man 
seemingly unbearable if not impossible. 

No business leader is exempt from this destiny, and our 
own dear President, Father Hussey, is no exception. Loyola 
University is indeed very fortunate to have as its head a man 
who, regardless of these every day strifes has continued, in his 
untiring effort, to make our University a leader in Catholic 

It is because of these facts that we take great pride and 
pleasure in dedicating this publication, The 1955 Towers, to the 
Very Reverend James T. Hussey, S./., in acknowledgment of his 
ten successful years as President of Loyola University. 

When Father Hussey took office in 1945, he was immedi- 
ately faced with the problem of coping with an entirely new 
concept in higher education, that of government subsidized 
schooling. The benefits of the GI Bill brought with them new 
problems and challenges to the school administrator. 

These challenges were met head on by our President, who 
promptly went to work to analyze and propose working solu- 
tions for handling the sudden flood of students who rushed to 
Loyola's doors. 

Acguisition of the Lewis Towers campus and certain modi- 
fications of office procedures brought about facilities that were 
to allow Loyola to handle the largest enrollment it has ever 

But, this milestone in his career is not the only reason why 
we honor this man. The fact that a university must serve the 
community seems to have been a major point in Father Hus- 
sey's administrative program. Through his vigilance and 
guidance, the City of Chicago has been made cognizant of the 
fact that this Jesuit institution is to be regarded as a prominent 
arc in the educational circle of this great city. 

In doing all these things, he has always had in mind one 
thing, the welfare of the student. Never has he forgotten the 
importance of the student as an individual. The addition of 
the Law Building and the construction of the Lake Shore dor- 
mitory, plus the plan for the new Medical School will long 
stand out as magnanimous achievements of his tenure of office. 
Here indeed is a man truly devoted to Loyola. 

We also want to speak of Father Hussey, the man and the 
priest. He has always brought admiration and esteem to the 
white collar of the Jesuit order. Prudence and thoughtfulness 
are reflected in his every decision be it large or small. The 
motto, "Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam", has become an inherent 
part of his life, a watchword by which he really lives and has 
inspired others to live. 

Father Hussey, we salute you and earnestly ask God to 
continue to shower upon you all of His blessings, for we know 
that in the years to come, you will never cease in your attempts 
to bring bigger and better things to Loyola.

The aim of the Jesuit Fathers who administer Loyola Univer- 
sity is to educate the whole man, spiritually, intellectually, physi- 
cally, and socially. Examination of a typical year, 1955, at Loy- 
ola will show us how this is accomplished. 

We will long remember 1955 lor the many things that it held 
lor us. For many, it marked the achievement of one of Life's 
most sought after goals — the receiving of a college degree. For 
others it marked the beginning of a rough road toward the at- 
tainment of that goal. It was a wonderful year, and we can see 
why by looking back on some of its memorable moments. 

It all began last Seotember. In the midst of our summer em- 
ployment, we received a "greeting" from Loyola informing us 
that classes would resume in the near future. It may seem hard 
to believe, but many were glad to return. If it was not the eager- 
ness to acquire new knowledge that prompted their return, 
it was the thought of seeing their old friends which helped them 
get back into the swing of things. 

The Solemn Mass of the Holy Ghost officially marked the 
beginning of another academic year. About a month later 
school was dismissed for three days in order to enable us to make 
a retreat. This, the Jesuit Fathers believe, is one of the many 
things which help develop the man spiritually. 

Next came the Miss Varsity Contest. All of the Fraternities 
presented their choice for the camous coed to represent Loy- 
ola during the next year. The student body voted, and the win- 
ner was announced at the Fall Frolic. The winner, Miss Sharon 
Hale, an Arts sophomore, was a worthv recipient of the honor. 
She represented Alpha Kapva Psi's choice of the coed who 
would represent Loyola throughout the coming year. 

The Fall Frolic provided a happy ending for the first true or- 
deal of the semester, the mid-term exams. Coffee sales in- 
creased and people began to look haggard as the time of the 
exams drew nearer. The Fall Frolic was just the beginning of 
the most inviting events in the school year, the Thanksgiving 
and Christmas holidays. 

Just before Thanksgiving an assembly was called to inform 
us that there would be a 1955 Towers. It was our hope that the 
book would be bigger and better so that it might well represent 
the College of Commerce. 

December brought with it the opening of the basketball sea- 
son. If the enthusiasm that was shown in the float parade was

President, Loyola University 

The Student Council of the College of Commerce is to be commended for 
its enterprise in assuming a large and significant task such as the publication 
of a yearbook. 

The successful completion of months of tireless effort and sacrifice by the 
Staff of the 1955 Towers has resulted in another beautiful annual, a JbooJ: 
that will serve as a pictorial reminder of the highlights of the past two 

Commerce students will, 1 am certain, often turn to this yearbook in 
the future to recall the start of lasting friendships made at Loyola and the 
occasions for many pleasant experiences undergone during college days. 

The editorial staff of the 1955 Towers has gained valuable experience 
by its successful completion of an enormous task. Its accomplishment is an 
almost certain guaranty that individuals on the staff have learned to explore 
and solve a difficult problem. 

Congratulations to a fine group of Loyolans for a job well done. 

James T. Hussey, S.J. 


Vice-President. Loyola University 

My Dear Commerce Students: 

We have reason to congratulate the 1955 graduates of the College of 
Commerce of Loyola University. 

Recent history has proved how important it is lor national and inter- 
national welfare that sound principles ot economic and social justice be 
communicated to society hy men informed of these principles and by men 
capable of interpreting them in the realistic procedures of the daily progress 
of the world of commerce and finance. We know that the graduates of 
1955 of Loyola University's College of Commerce are well equipped to benefit 
society in these areas. 

May God bless their efforts. Their University will watch them with 
paternal solicitude. 

Sincerely yours in Christ, 

Jeremiah J. O'Callaghan, S.J. 


Dean. College of Commerce 


Soon after G Day most of you will make your plunge from the academic spring- 
board into new and open waters. You will swim with hope and confidence towards the 
distant shores you discern on the misty horizon. The shoals and reefs and pounding 
surfs, considered only as hypothetical dangers as you splashed in the scholastic pool, 
may become very real and menacing out there in the open sea. 1 hope your college 
has given you knowledge and strength lor the adventure. 

When time has run considerably on its way and, years after your graduation, you 
may have occasion to open this book and finger through the pages reminding you of 
four very special years in your Hie, please be reminded, too, that your college — your 
university — can never be better than YOU permit it to be. Your reputation is 
Loyola's reputation; Loyola's achievement is your achievement. You alumni are the living 
body of Loyola University. Have you helped this body to grow in all the spiritual and 
material things necessary for a great university?

The Dean of Students and the Dean of Women are found in Room 804 at 
Lewis Towers. 

Since the Rev. Lawrence Lynch, S.J., became ill in the early part of the 
year, Harry McCloskey has taken over that position as acting dean. Mr. Mc- 
Closkey is also moderator of the Loyola Union and as such, co-ordinates the 
Union activities in a manner most beneficial to the student body of Loyola Uni- 
versity. In being chairman of the Committee on Student Activities and Welfare 
Mr. McCloskey regulates the affairs of all student groups. 

Miss Mariette Le Blanc is the Dean of Women. She counsels and offers 
helpful suggestions to all coeds in the university. Miss Le Blanc is also 
Moderator of the Coed Club and takes an active part in the planning of the 
club's functions.

Accounting Department 

Realizing the need for qualified personnel 
in the accounting profession, this department, 
since its founding has striven to require the 
highest standard of education. It is for this 
reason that training in accounting problems 
which require the co-ordination of many fluc- 
tuating and interrelated variables may well 
develop the latent talent of an expert co- 
ordinator. Since accounting is the language 
of business it seems almost certain that the 
main objective of the course is to familiarize 
the student with approved methods and afford 
adequate preparation for C.P.A. while ac- 
quainting him with other fields of commerce. 

Under the very able direction of Mr. Henry 

T. Chamberlain, Accounting Department Chair- 
man, it has attempted to offer sufficient guid- 
ance to C.P.A. candidates. The C.P.A. Review 
offered at Loyola has received recognition as 
one of the best in the country. 

For those who are planning a career in 
business it is wise to learn first the language 
of business, which is accounting. It is with 
this idea in mind that accounting is considered 
a "must" for the modern businessman. 

Whether it is studied in preparation for 
the C.P.A. profession or just general knowl- 
edge, the Accounting Curriculum at Loyola 
provides an excellent background for any 
position in the commercial field. 

Business Law 

Mr. John D. O'Malley, Mr. John A. Zvetina. Mr. L. Claude Dollahan. 

Business Law, organized in 1925, became 
a separate department in the College of Com- 
merce in 1948. 

The Department of Business Law has for 
its main purpose the training of the students in 
the various branches of Business Law in ac- 
cordance with the Jesuit aims of education 
which stress the training of the full man — his 
cultural material, and especially his spiritual 

This main purpose is achieved through the 
integration of the subjects of Business Law 
with other branches of cultural study; through 
the demonstration of the role which the system 
of the common law, supplemented by statute, 
has played, and continues to play in the de- 
velopment of our Christian democratic civiliza- 
tion in the West. 

The secondary, but nonetheless important 
purpose of the department is to develop the 
mind and analytical skills of the student by 
the case method so that he will be able to 
recognize in his later business life a legal prob- 
lem and have some concept of its solution 
in terms of law. It is not the aim of this 
course to develop students to be lawyers or 
act as such. It is important that they be able 
to recognize a legal problem so that proper 
steps may be taken at the inception to protect 
their legal rights and prevent unnecessary 

The chairman of the department is Mr. 
John A. Zvetina, and he is assisted by Mr. 
John D. O'Malley in the day classes. Dean 
Sheriff is also a member of this department. 

Economics -Finance 

Economics is such a broad field that at 
Loyola it is divided into two primary areas. 
In one area, the curriculum deals more directly 
with finance. The other area deals more di- 
rectly with macro and micro analysis and the 
development of economic theory. 

In spite of this, it is organized as one de- 
partment, and functions as two separate fields 
of concentration. The only distinction that can 
be made between the two fields is that all 
finance falls under the category of economics, 
but not all economics can be classified as 

The primary objectives of the Department 
of Economics have been defined by Dr. T. A. 
Mogilnitsky who is Chairman of this depart- 
ment. The objectives of the department of 
Economics and Finance are so to teach eco- 

nomics and finance as to prepare students to 
become responsible citizens, intelligent and 
moral professional men, and to lay the founda- 
tion for, as well as to encourage graduate work. 

This goal of the department is achieved in 
class instruction by combining the teaching 
of economic laws with discussions of ethical 
implications of both sides and by making refer- 
ences to an ideal which arises from the dis- 
cussion. The department believes that all 
human activities including economics, should 
be treated in the light of moral principles. 

The department also seeks to keep the stu- 
dent abreast of the latest economic develop- 
ments through the presentation of new research 
data which has been interpreted and evaluated 
by its instructors.

Dr. Theodosi A. Mogilnitsky. Dr. Joseph O. Englet, Dr. Helen C. Potter. 

Management Department 

The fundamental objectives of the Man- 
agement Department are: (1) to develop in 
the student the ability to make decisions on the 
higher levels of managerial authority and 
responsibility; (2) cultivation and application 
of the understanding that when management 
relates itself to man, human values and spirit- 
ual values come before material values and 
(3) cultivation of the realization that only when 
the virtues of charity, unselfishness, and jus- 
tice set straight the hearts of men will the 
minds of men set straight the world of business. 

The Department has for its specific objec- 
tive the training of the student so that he may 

be able to take his place in, and function effec- 
tively in a "top" managerial position. To 
enable the student to do this, the Management 
seeks to train the student so that he may 
know and possess skill in the application of 
the basic principles of business management. 
An executive without principles is like a 
physician without medical knowledge. 

The Chairman of the Management De- 
partment is Dr. Peter T. Swanish. The faculty 
members under him are: Rev. T. V. Purcell, S.J., 
Dr. W. H. Peterson, Mr. J. V. McCullough, and 
Mr. M. Bowen. 

Mr. Joseph V. McCullough, Dr. Peter T. Swanish, Chairman, Dr. Theodore V. Purcell, S.J.. 
Dr. Walter H. Peterson. 

Seated: Dr. Kenneth B. Haas. 

Standing: Mr. Lloyd Allen, Dr. Orange A. Smalley, Mr. Harry McCloskey, Dr. Wayne F. 
Caskey, Mr. Charles Slater. 

Marketing Department 

The Marketing Department was formed in 
September, 1948. It consisted of one Chairman- 
instructor, Dr. Haas, who taught six courses in 
this field. Since then it has made remarkable 
strides in development, and today eleven 
courses are taught covering many aspects in 
the Marketing field. At present, the depart- 
ment, headed by Dr. K. B. Hacs, is composed 
of Mr. H. L. McCloskey, Dr. W. F. Caskey, Mr. 
C A. Slater, Dr. O. A. Smalley, Mr. L. A. Allen. 

The Department seeks to integrate its in- 
structions with the broad aims of the Uni- 
versity, the College of Commerce and other 
departments, so that the students may emerge 
from the University as well-rounded men 

or women, rather than being overexposed in 
certain aspects and underexposed in others. 
It seeks also to give the students theoretical 
and practical business experience in the field 
of distribution and to induce them to continue 
a self-education process after formal schooling 
has ended. 

The students of Marketing are taught to 
become Marketing executives who can deal 
with policy problems and make decisions; who 
analyze conditions and trends and make satis- 
factory recommendations as to appropriate 
action. This is accomplished by training the 
students in the study of marketing research, 
the history of marketing, and problems of

any indication of what the Loyolans were hoping lor, their hopes 
were raised when the team defeated the Elmhurst quintet in the 
first encounter oi the season. The Alpha Delt's float won the 
first place title among all the floats that were entered. 

On December 1, 2, and 3 the College of Commerce re- 
ceived and entertained an inspection team from the American 
Association of Collegiate Schools of Business. This visit was part 
of the process of applying for and being admitted to membership 
in the nationwide organization. In order to be admitted, a col- 
lege must meet the manifold high standards set by the organiza- 

In applyinq for membership, the College of Commerce sub- 
mitted voluminous reports on its history, entrance requirements, 
graduation requirements, academic background, practical expe- 
rience and teaching ability of each separate teacher in business 

A very favorable report of the inspection was subsequently 
made to the executive committee at its meeting in Detroit dur- 
ing Christmas week. The executive committee' s approval was 
scheduled to be presented on April 30 to a vote of the full mem- 
bership during its annual convention. Approval by the member 
deans was anticipated at the time this page went to press. 

Further evidence of progress around Loyola could be seen by 
us as we returned from the basketball games and other social 
events at Lake Shore Campus. Just to the north of the campus, 
we observed the progress being made on the building of the 
new dormitories which next September will house Loyola stu- 
dents from all over the United States and many foreign lands. 

Advent came and we knew that soon Christmas would be 
here. The feast of the Immaculate Conception ended the spe- 
cial Marian Year. The close of the Marian Year left us waiting 
to hear word concerning the recovery of Our Holy Father from 
his illness. 

The last day of class before the long holiday was almost un- 
bearable. The sounds of caroling from the lounge and the 
chimes ringing out festive Christmas songs made concentration 
on debits and credits, methods of distribution, and Ancient His- 
tory almost impossible. The gaiety continued at the Union's sec- 
ond big off-campus dance of the year, the Winter Frolic, held in 
the Grand Ballroom of the Sheraton Hotel. Lou Breeze and his 
band supplied the music for a night of enduring memories. 

The elections for our Union Congressmen were held almost

Commerce Council

In the College of Commerce the student governing body is known 
as the Commerce Student Council. The Commerce Council membership 
is made up of the elected officers of the four classes. The President of 
the Senior Class becomes (ex officio) the Council President, the President 
of the Junior Class becomes Vice-President, the Sophomore President acts 
as Treasurer, the Freshman President as Secretary. Dean J. Raymond 
Sheriff functions as moderator, and together with him the Council strives 
to maintain a close relationship between the administration and the 

It is the purpose of the Council to develop student self-government 
by organizing and systematizing student activities, by stimulating intra- 
class relationships and by fostering other such matters as will benefit 
the college as a whole. The objectives of the Council are the same as 
those of the University . . . the building of the Whole Man. 

In line with these goals the Council is constantly driving to present 
an ever more encompassing student program. Among its projects this 
year was the publication of a student directory, The Party Line. Again 
this year the Towers, the Commerce Yearbook, was published. The 
Council also issued a brochure concerning the Commerce faculty in which 
there was given a brief outline of the background of each member. 
This was done in the hope of promoting better understanding between 
the faculty and the students. 

In addition to these functions, the Council continued to sponsor its 
two mixers, Sports Night, a Variety Show, the Honors-Day Senior Dinner- 
Dance, and actively supported the Union Carnival. 

In the past few years, the Commerce Council has been one of the 
most active student governmental bodies in the University. This is due 
to the firm support it has received from the students. With this in mind 
it may always be assured that the Student Council will continually en- 
deavor to make life in the School of Commerce a more beneficial one; 
and, with the continued support of the students, it can offer bigger and 
better student programs.

Loyola Union 

Student government at Loyola is based on 
the all-university as well as college and school 
level. The first regular meeting of the Loyola 
Union, known until then as the Interdepart- 
mental Committee, was called to order De- 
cember 11, 1928. The organization functioned 
until the United States' entry into World War II. 

In 1946, at the request of the President of 
Loyola University, the Loyola Union was re- 
organized. The purpose of the present Union is 
seen in the preamble of the constitution. 

"To unify the student body of Loyola 
University, to promote student unity in each 
school and college of the university, to pro- 
vide liaison between the student body and the 
university, to support the religious program of 
the university, to encourage student academic 
and social societies, to govern the student body 
according to sound principles of self-govern- 
ment, to form and uphold traditions, to voice 
student opinion, to create wholesome relations 
among student organizations, to enlarge uni- 
versity life for succeeding generations of stu- 
dents, to meet the needs of a greater Loyola 
Student Body and of a greater Loyola Univer- 
sity, to perpetuate the Loyola Union of Loyola 
University ..." 

All students who have registered and are 
in academic residence in any of the schools 
and colleges of Loyola University are members 
of the Loyola Union. 

There is a permanent and representative 
body which is called the Congress and which 

meets in February, April, October and De- 
cember in regular session, at the call of the 
President of the Union. It is composed of 
Union members selected in the month of Janu- 
ary to serve from the February session of that 
year until the February session of the succeed- 
ing year. The members of the congress are 
known as congressmen. 

There is selected by the student body of 
each school and college, in whatever manner 
determined by each, not less than two nor more 
than six union members. 

Annually in the regular February meeting, 
the congress elects a board of governors, and 
such offices as a board member enjoys on 
the board will ipso facto establish him in the 
same office both of the Congress and in the 

The board meets regularly in each month 
from September through May and in special 
meetings at any other times of the calendar 
year at the call of the President. 

The purpose of this organization is to foster 
the mental, moral and physical development of 
the students of the various colleges, to support 
student activities and to develop friendly rela- 
tions between the students and the faculty. 

Each year the Union sponsors a Fall 
Frolic, at which Miss Varsity is crowned and 
the Winter Frolic which is usually held off- 
campus. This year, for the second time in its 
history, it conducted a Fair to raise funds to be 
used by the Loyola Union.

Alpha Kappa Psi

Jack Katzenberger Secretary 

William Donchoe Treasurer 

William McNally Master of Rituals 

Since 1904, when Alpha Kappa Psi was 
inaugurated as the first professional fraternity 
in the field of Business Administration, the 
number of its collegiate chapters has risen to 

Gamma Iota Chapter has the distinction 
of being the seventy-fifth chapter to join the 
ranks of the national fraternity. In the three 
years since its inception at Loyola, the chapter 
has served the University by counseling the 
Commerce underclassmen in the Career Day 
which Gamma Iota sponsors every April. 

Also in a professional attitude, the chapter 
arranges professional speakers meetings and 
movies, with two tours each year. 

Realizing Xhc* the members have needs 
other than purely academic ones, the ch .pter 
sponsors social and religious activities, too. 
Twice a year the members and their fathers 
unite for the Mass offered by Father Lester 
Evett, the fraternity Chaplain. 

As for treating the lighter side of life, the 
fraternity sponsors more than a few social 
activities. Perhaps the most gala of these 
affairs is the traditional Golf Outing held in 
Wisconsin on a week end in June. Other 
social functions are the Hallowe'en Hayride, 
and the New Year's Eve and St. Patrick's Day 

Gamma Iota Chapter has done well in the 
Intramural Program during the past year. 
Support by a large number of the members, 
as well as tremendous teamwork, has given us 
one of our most successful seasons. 

Another distinction achieved by Alpha 
Kappa Psi in 1954-55 was its candidate, Miss 
Sharon Hale, winning the Miss Varsity contest. 
This marked the second year in a row that 
the fraternity's candidate has won acclaim in 
the University. 

So it is, then, that after just three years 
of existence the chapter has achieved a posi- 
tion at Loyola. That aim of the national fra- 
ternity: "... to further the individual welfare 
of the members of Alpha Kappa Psi", has 
seemingly been attained — and for this the 
members are extremely grateful to the modera- 
tor of Gamma Iota Chapter, Mr. Joseph V. Mc-

Delta Sigma Pi is a professional fraternity 
in the field of commerce and business adminis- 
tration which was founded November 7, 1907, 
at New York University, to encourage scholar- 
ship, social activity, and the association of 
students for their mutual advancement. Since 
its founding over ninety-one chapters have 
been installed in accredited schools of com- 
merce throughout the United States and 

An international fraternity to unite the 
men of commerce at Loyola was the dream of 
Professor Howard Wilson. Through his efforts 
a petition was submitted for the installation of 
a chapter at Loyola. On September 30, 1950, 
Gamma Pi Chapter became a reality. The 
chapter grew in strength and number under 
the skillful guidance of its officers and modera- 
tor, Mr. Wilson. 

Delta Sigma Pi 

In keeping with the professional aspects 
of its make-up, Gamma Pi offers both in and 
out-of-town tours and speakers to the member- 
ship as extracurricular training in their field 
of concentration. Movies on industry are of- 
fered weekly to all students of commerce as a 
service to the University. 

The chapter sponsors at least one monthly 
activity which is held in the Key Club room. 
The highlight of each semester is the dinner 
dance honoring the new pledges. 

To promote scholarship among the com- 
merce students, Delta Sigma Pi awards a 
scholarship key to the male senior who upon 
graduation ranks the highest in scholarship. 

The chapter has provided many outstand- 
ing student leaders who have devoted their 
time and effort to the University. Gamma Pi 
is recognized on the campus as an outstanding 
professional fraternity, socially, spiritually, and 

The members of Gamma Pi Chapter are 
thrice blessed in having as their moderator Dr. 
Frizol, who succeeded Mr. Wilson in February, 
1952. We will never forget his unselfish atti- 
tude where the good of the fraternity and 
chapter is concerned.

The Coed Club was organized in the 
spring of 1949, the purpose of which, it was de-

club arose when a group of women students 
became aware of a need for an organization to 
unify the women students of the day school. 
This group met with Miss Julia O'Malley, then 
Dean of Women and formed the present Coed 

The success of the Coed Club can be seen 
through the magnificent support of its mem- 
bers. In May, 1949, this success was first ob- 
served with the undertaking of a picnic which 
was to mark the first social venture of this new 
club. The splendid result of trie picnic was 

enough evidence that this organization was 
desired by the women students. 

This year's social program began with a 
Welcoming Tea for all the new women stu- 
dents of the University. Following the first few 
weeks of school a "Big Sister" party was given 
as a warm greeting to the incoming freshman 
women. Early in November the annual Card 
Party- Fashion Show was held. The main so- 
cial event of the year is the Christmas Formal 
which was held this year at the Palmer House 
Hotel. In the second semester a dinner was 
held for the parents and daughters, in order to 
acquaint the parents with University activities. 
In addition to this the Club has various parties, 
and also sponsors an annual mixer. The last 
activity of the year was a "Farewell Dinner" for 
all graduating women students. 

The Coed Club is fortunate in having as a 
moderator Miss Mariette Le Blanc, whose guid- 
ance has aided the club in all its activities. 

The Coed Club of today is a well estab- 
lished social organization, which is an asset to 
the women students and Loyola University.

Alpha Delta Gamma 


William Watson President 

Thomas Rivera Vice-President 

James Maratta Secretary 

Thomas Fagin Treasurer 

John Houlihan Pledge Master 

Alpha Delta Gamma Fraternity was found- 
ed at Loyola University located in Chicago, 
Illinois, during the year 1924. Fourteen Loy- 
olans realizing the very tangible need for an 
organization guite different from those which 
were already existing on the campus, and de- 
siring to bind themselves into stronger bonds 
of friendship, formed the nucleus of what is 
today a National Catholic Social Fraternity. 
Therefore Loyola University was very fittingly 
designed as the mother chapter, and was 
called Alpha Chapter, which is the first letter 
in the Greek alphabet. 

No new chapters were added to the ranks 
until the post-war convention of 1947, held at 
Chicago, Illinois. At that time Eta Chapter 
from Quincy College, Quincy, Illinois, was in- 
ducted. This chapter was founded by a for- 
mer "Alpha Delt" from Alpha Chapter who en- 

tered and was ordained into the Franciscan 

In 1948 several students from St. Norberts 
College, West DuPere, Wisconsin, expressed a 
firm and sincere desire to become affiliated 
with Alpha Delta Gamma Fraternity, and after 
sufficient deliberation, it was decided that 
Theta Chapter from St. Norberts should come 
into the hallowed brotherhood of Alpha Delta 

In 1952, at the convention held in Chicago, 
Loyola University of Los Angeles, California, 
was allowed to enter into this National Catholic 
Social Fraternity. The brothers in Alpha Delta 
Gamma voted on and approved the formation 
of a chapter at this school, and it is called 
Lambda Chapter. 

At the most recent of annual conventions 
held by Alpha Delta Gamma Fraternity, Phi 
Omega Fraternity of Spring Hill College, Mo- 
bile, Alabama, asked to become a member 
chapter of Alpha Delta Gamma. After the con- 
vention delegates returned home to Spring 
Hill, they announced that what was formerly 
Phi Omega Fraternity was now Phi Omega 
Chapter of Alpha Delta Gamma — National 
Catholic Social Fraternity.

Kappa Beta Gamma 


Mary Ann O'Mara President 

Suzanne McKenna Vice-President 

Loretta Hartman Cor. Secretary 

Lana Farelli Recording Secretary 

Margaret Conlon Treasurer 

Cynthia Jason Pledge Mistress 

Kappa Beta Gamma is the only Jesuit 
sorority at Loyola. It was founded in 1920 at 
Marquette University, and since that time 
chapters have been organized in several Mid- 
western Jesuit universities. 

Epsilon chapter, located at Loyola, was 
founded by ten coeds in December of 1953. It 
is open to all full time undergraduate women 
in all divisions of the university. Through a 
varied schedule of activities Kappa encourages 
the spiritual, educational, and social develop- 
ment of its members. 

The agenda for the year includes three 
rushing teas each semester. The six week 

pledge period which follows is a constructive 
time during which the pledges become 
acquainted with the aims and ideals of the 
sorority and cooperate with the members in 
sorority projects. Formal initiation takes place 
at a dinner dance held each semester. 

Kappa sponsors an annual closed retreat 
for its members and celebrates Founder's Day 
in May with Mass and a Communion Breakfast. 
The sorority is anxious to serve the university 
at all times. It has actively backed the wom- 
en's intramural program. Kappa is very 
proud to be the winner of the prize for the 
most beautiful float in the float parade opening 
the basketball season of 1954-1955. 

Kappa Beta Gamma is fortunate to have 
as its moderator the Reverend Richard E. Tisch- 
ler, S.J., Associate Dean of the College of 
Arts and Sciences. It has been largely through 
his excellent judgement and guidance that 
the sorority experienced such success during its 
first year at Loyola. 

Phi Mu Chi 


Louis Minella President

Joseph Eraci Treasurer 

Phi Mu Chi is the oldest social fraternity 
at Loyola University. It was founded at the 
University of Chicago in 1922, and in the same 
year Beta Chapter was organized at the Lake 
Shore Campus of Loyola. 

The primary end of this fraternity is to 
further brotherly feeling and co-operation 
among its members, past and present. The 

attitude of Christian and brotherly co-operation 
is carried on not only within the fraternity but 
in the social and scholastic extracurricular ac- 
tivities of Loyola as well; the ideas being not 
only to further the primary end of the fraternity, 
but also to further the well-being of the univer- 

One of Loyola's big activities each year is 
Phi Mu Chi's sponsorship of their annual Easter 
Queenship Ball which features the crowning 
of a coed as Queen of the dance. This dance 
is open to all students and their friends and is 
held off-campus. The fraternity also holds a 
number of closed parties throughout the year 
in keeping with its tradition as a social fra-

Pi Alpha Lambda 


Jack Sullivan President 

John Garrity Vice-President 

Jerry Miller Secretary 

Gene Duban Treasurer 

Since its founding in 1924 by the Rev. 
James F. Mertz, S.J., Pi Alpha Lambda social 
fraternity has stressed the interests of Loyola 
while fostering high morals and scholastic 
standards among its members. 

Under the direction of Dr. Paul Humert, 
who succeeded the Rev. John Kemp, S.J., as 
moderator in November of 1954, the fraternity 
has enjoyed new spirit in undertaking projects 
by which it hopes to further its aims. Among 
its projects is an increased interest and partici- 
pation in the extracurricular activities that are 
offered by the non-fraternal organizations of 
the school. Another aim of the fraternity this 
year is a return to the old tradition of Loyola 

fraternities by acguiring a fraternity house. 

Aside from these special interests, Pi Alpha 
Lambda has maintained its annual social and 
religious activities. Each year the members of 
the fraternity attend a closed retreat at Barring- 
ton, Illinois. Holy Week Services and a Family 
Communion Sunday are among its other re- 
ligious activities which the fraternity sponsors. 

Among its social activities, the fraternity 
features monthly closed parties for its members, 
two formal dances and an open mixer. 

Always actively participating in the intra- 
mural program, the fraternity has consistently 
been among the leaders for top intra-school 

Made up of almost egual membership from 
the College of Arts and Sciences and from the 
College of Commerce, members of Pi Alpha 
Lambda may be found in the top posts of 
student government and on the roster of every 
varsity sport.

Sigma Pi Alpha 


Ed Janis President 

Wally Koziol ■. Vice-President 

Joe Malek Pledge Master 

Ron Keefer Secretary 

Greg Zeman Treasurer 

In 1933, this local social fraternity was or- 
ganized for the purpose of uniting Loyola stu- 
dents of Polish extraction. In 1947, however, 
membership in this organization was opened 
to all male students regardless of creed or 

Sigma Pi Alpha was founded in order to 
promote intellectual and social interest among 
its members, and to provide opportunities for 
their development, both morally and physi- 

cally, in an atmosphere of friendship and co- 

Throughout the year Sigma Pi Alpha 
sponsors many social functions including 
smokers, socials, and mixers. The most im- 
portant event on their social calendar and one 
much talked about at Loyola is their annual 
"Fraternity Man of the Year" dance which is 
held on the last school day of the semester. 
This year it will be held on June 3 at the 
Graemere Hotel. This dance is open to all 
students and their friends. The highlight of the 
evening is the awarding of a trophy to the 
male student who has proven himself as the 
most valuable man to his fraternity. 

Sigma Pi Alpha is determined to continue 
as one of the outstanding fraternities on 
campus and keep up their tradition of offering 
a high spirit of brotherhood.

Tan Delta Phi 


Joel Levin President 

James Murphy Vice-President 

Marvin Aspers Secretary 

John Carbery Treasurer 

Tau Delta Phi, a national social fraternity, 
was founded in 1910 in the city of New York. 
This organization is proud to boast a member- 
ship of over five thousand members in its 
twenty-eight chapters located from coast to 
coast. Tau Eta, the chapter which is located 
at Loyola, was founded in 1949 through the 
efforts of Mr. Hy Krane. At present Tau Eta 
has eighteen active members, most of whom 
are pre-medical students. 

The purpose of Tau Delta Phi Fraternity is 
to give students of the Jewish faith a voice in 

university affairs. Its membership is open to 
persons of other beliefs, also. 

Since its founding, this chapter has main- 
tained the highest scholastic rating of any fra- 
ternity located at Loyola. 

In keeping with the spirit of social fra- 
ternity, Tau Delta Phi sponsors many social 
functions throughout the year. On the athletic 
side, the Tau Delts have distinguished them- 
selves in the intramural competition. Tau Eta 
has always been one of the top competitors in 
the Olympic Week Games. 

Tau Eta's participation in university ac- 
tivities is of both a diverse and universal na- 
ture. Despite the fine advances since its 
inception, Tau Eta will never stop striving in 
its attempt to make Tau Delta Phi one of the 
finest of Loyola's fraternities. 


Theta Phi Alpha 


Helen Quinlisk President 

Marie Raymond Vice-President 

Joan Krygier Cor. Secretary 

Mary Jane Severs Rec. Secretary 

Mary Jo Collins Treasurer 

Carol Lemm Pledge Mistress 

Theta Phi Alpha was initiated on the 
campus of the University of Michigan at Ann 
Arbor in 1912 under the guidance of Bishop 
Edward D. Kelly of Detroit. 

Bishop Kelly, then Auxiliary Bishop of that 
city, realized the need for a Catholic women's 
group to promote the religious, educational 
and social aspects of campus life. The ties of 
a common religion allowed to flourish in a 
home atmosphere provided by a chapter house 
could advance the interests of young women 
not only on the campus but would continue 
their Christian ideals after college days. 

In 1918, the sorority begun on the Ann 
Arbor campus became the Alpha Chapter of 
Theta Phi Alpha. Soon after, Theta Phi was ac- 
cepted for membership in the National Pan- 
hellenic Conference. Today, it is one of the 

thirty-one members of the N.P.C. of women's 
fraternities founded on the campuses of ac- 
credited universities and colleges throughout 
the nation; the chapter roll of Theta Phi Alpha 
numbers twenty-two. Upsilon chapter of Theta 
Phi was established at Loyola on March 7, 

The year's schedule of Theta Phi Alpha 
activities at Loyola began with a formal tea 
for the foreign students enrolled in Loyola. Two 
rushing parties are hosted by the actives each 
semester before new rushees are accepted as 
pledges. The three month pledge period ended 
with a formal initiation of sixteen girls at 
the Kungsholm. For Thanksgiving the Philan- 
thropy Committee of the sorority sponsored a 
campus wide food and toy drive. For Christ- 
mas the actives and pledges entertained at 
Radke's Convalescent and Nursing Home. On 
March 6, 1955, the Upsilon Chapter celebrated 
their twelfth anniversary at Loyola with a 
birthday party. One of the outstanding events 
of the sorority calendar was the annual White 
Rose Ball held on May 7, 1955. The highlight 
of Theta Phi activities was Founder's Day 
which was celebrated on the feast of St. Cath- 
erine of Siena, patroness of the sorority, on 
April 30.

University Club 


William Lane President 

Martin Conolly Vice-President 

Thomas Dyba Secretary 

Paul Sheeman Treasurer 

Founded in 1938 on the Lake Shore 
Campus, the University Club began chiefly as 
an athletic organization. After a few years the 
Club was organized as a social fraternity, and 
now its members consist of students from Lake 
Shore and Lewis Towers. 

Under the capable guidance of Father 
Cletus Hartman, S./., Moderator, the University 
Club has adopted a year-round social pro- 
gram extending through the summer. The Uni- 

versity Club has always attempted to afford 
its members with a varied schedule of activi- 
ties. Activities during the school year include 
sleigh rides, picnics, group outings, and closed 
parties. Summer activities consist of picnics, 
week-end outings, and facilities for spending 
the entire summer together at a summer cot- 
tage. Thus the policy of the University Club 
is to promote new activities and enable mem- 
bers to enjoy a year-round social program. 

The officers of the U-Club combine their 
efforts in having the pledges perform many 
services and benefits to Loyola and to Chicago 
such as counseling and instructing at the 
C.Y.O. and making their services available to 
Loyola when needed.

Accounting Club 

Since the Loyola University Accounting 
Club was founded in 1949, it has been one of 
the most active organizations in the College of 
Commerce. To meet the society's general pur- 
pose of furthering the study in and promoting 
the advancement of the field of accounting, 
leaders in the accounting profession are 
brought in as guest speakers. Field trips are 
promoted. Group and individual study of prob- 
lems and the theory of accounting are dis- 
cussed among the group which in turn stimu- 
lates its interest. 

Economics Society 

Since the re-organization of the Economics 
Society of Loyola University in 1946, it has 
striven to maintain new projects for the club 
at all times. The club not only encourages 
the students in the College of Commerce to 
join, but also extends its membership to 
Arts students as well. 

On the academic side, the club has round- 
table discussions with other colleges, and they 
also show weekly movies of economic interest. 
They also promote other functions which help 
advance the reason for which they became or-

Marketing Club 

The object of the Marketing Club, as in 
other organizations, is to create and maintain 
interest in the group. The Marketing Club 
creates interest for its members by planning 
field trips to major industries, and learning 
how they function in promotion, production 
and distribution. 

The members of this club are now junior 
members of the American Marketing Associa- 

S. 1. 

Loyola's Student Chapter of the Society 
for the Advancement of Management was 
formed in 1951. Students from all the major 
fields in the College of Commerce as well as 
Management majors are members of the or- 
ganization. The Society's Chapters consist of 
businessmen in all fields and student members 
from business schools all over the country. 

Through its meetings, speakers, publica- 
tions (Advanced Management) and tours of 
various business establishments it attempts to 
accomplish its objectives.

who are responsible for the production of the 1955 Towers. It 
was through their time end effort that we were able to provide 
the Commerce School, and you the students of that school, 
with this yearbook. To them we extend our thanks for having 
spent long and tedious hours in compiling this book. We hope 
that their efforts will serve as the basis for further achieve- 
ments in producing future yearbooks. 

The same form of organization initiated last year by the 
Towers staff served as the foundation for our committees this 
year. There were two editors, Financial and Production, who 
undertook the responsibility of the co-editorship. This year Joe 
Weber and Jack Calderini were appointed to fill these 

Joe Weber and his staff are to be commended for a job 
well done in making the financial arrangements. Jack Cal- 
derini, through the assistance afforded him by his staff was 
able to produce the necessary material in order to make this 
book possible. 

It was a hard job, but we feel that the personal satisfaction 
derived from such an endeavor is a sufficient reward for our 
efforts. We sincerely hope that the efforts of all the people 
concerned has helped to make 1955 a memorable year for the 
students of the College of Commerce.

No words can better describe the Sodality here at Loyola than the 
preamble to their constitution. 

The Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Sodality is an affiliate of the Prima 
Primaria Sodality, an association founded by the Society of Jesus and 
approved by the Holy See, which is a religious body aiming at fostering in 
its members an ardent devotion, reverence, and filial love toward the Blessed 
Virgin Mary. Through this devotion and with the protection of so good a 
mother it seeks to make the faithful gathered together under her name good 
Catholics, sincerely bent on sanctifying themselves, each in his state of life, 
and zealous, as far as their conditions in life permit, to save and sanctify their 
neighbor and to defend the Church of Jesus Christ. 

The Sodality has worked long and unceasingly in promoting spiritual 
exercises and the students salute them for the fine work they have done. 

Rev. Joseph Hogan, S.J., student counsellor 
and moderator of the sodalities at Lewis 
Towers, was promoted this year from major to 
lieutenant colonel in the Army reserve. 

This is but one of the many honors which 
the Army has bestowed upon Fr. Hogan. 
During World War II he was awarded the 
Bronze Star medal with a "V" for valor, along 
with the Army Commendation Ribbon. 

During the summer Fr. Hogan, like all 
reservists, attends a summer training period. 
Last year Fr. Hogan was assigned to Ft. Leon- 

ardwood, Mo. During his tour he met many 
Loyola grads. 

As Chaplain of Loyola's R.O.T.C. unit, Fr. 
Hogan visits the various encampments at 
which Loyola's corps is represented. 

Fr. Hogan received his high school educa- 
tion at Loyola Academy, and then entered the 
Society of Jesus. He received his M.A. and 
S.P.L. from St. Louis University. Before the 
war, he taught philosophy and religion at 
Loyola. During the war he served in the Euro- 
pean theater.

immediately after our return from the long vacation. The ballots 
were returned and it was revealed that Arthur Herman, ]ames 
Cullinan, William Waters, Richard Ripoli and Richard Spillane 
had been elected as our representatives. Dennis Price, Council 
appointee and sixth man of the Commerce contingent, was 
elected Treasurer of the Loyola Union. 

Midnight oil brightened many rooms and the aroma of cof- 
fee filled almost every home as the final period approached. 
Somehow we got through the misty fog which was caused by a 
lack of sleep, cramming, and the cigarettes of forty nervous 
classmates with results that were quite astonishing. In fact, we 
may have surprised ourselves! 

After a two-week vacation between semesters everyone 
was ready for another semester. The stamina acquired over the 
long vacation was sufficient to tide us over another semester. 

Elections were held on February 20 for President of the Loy- 
ola Union. Charles McKiel was honored as the first graduate- 
level student to be named as President of the Union. 

Later in the week, Miss Pat Keane, Lewis Towers fresh- 
man, was named Rose of Delta Sigma Pi by the members of 
that fraternity. She represented the local chapter in National 
competition held in the spring. 

Such expressions as "throw the rascals out" and "vote for 
the people's choice" began to be heard around the campus as 
Loyolans became actively interested in the mayoral campaign. 
On March 10, Republican Robert Merriam and Democrat Rich- 
ard Daly debated campaign issues before a standing room only 
crowd in the School of Law Assembly Hall. Later, in a straw 
poll conducted by the Loyola News, the students selected Mer- 
riam as their choice to lead Chicago. However, as it later turned 
out, the students' choice was not the people's choice. 

St. Patrick's Day spread a feeling of gaiety throughout the 
school. A mixer was given on St. Patrick's Night and served as 
an excellent break during Lent. Various parties were given 
by the different organizations for their own encounters with a 
day of freedom. 

On the last Saturday in March, the fourth annual Commerce- 
Arts Variety Show entertained a packed house in the Victory 
Room on the Lake Shore Campus. After weeks of rehearsal and 
hard work, a top notch show was put on by our student talent.

Basketball Record 

Basketball fans at Loyola have much to 
look forward to in the coming year. For the 
first time in three seasons the Ramblers have 
finished above the .500 mark. This year's team 
won 13 of the 24 games on their extremely 
rough schedule, and with four of the top five 
regulars returning they will attempt to better 
this record. The only graduate of the team will 
be Art Schalk who finished a fabulous four 
years as a Loyola athlete. He was the captain 
of this year's team and led the scorers with a 
total of 381 points for a 15.8 average. He also 
was the top rebounder, snaring 271 miscues 
from the backboards. 

Along with the returning lettermen from 
this year's squad, will be the huge freshman 
team which compiled a 16 win and 2 loss rec- 
ord for their season. They scored at an average 
of 69.5 points per game, while their excellent 
defense held the opposition to a 49.6 ave- 
rage. The freshman starting team averaged 
approximately 6 ft. 4 inch, and will present a 
welcome sight to the varsity who lacked an 
abundance of tall players. 

Statistically speaking, improvement over 
last year's season was shown. The squad 
scored 267 points more than in the previous 
season and held their opponents to only a 132 
point gain. They also improved their total 
point average by moving from a 71.8 ave- 
rage in the 53-54 season to an 80.0 ave- 
rage this past season. With the experience 
received this year, plus greater height and 
more depth for next year, the basketball fans 
at Loyola can look forward to a season in 
which these previous marks will be surpassed. 

The highlight of the season was the upset 
achieved by the Ramblers in their last game 
of the season at the expense of the University 
of Louisville. Already having accepted a bid 
to play in the National Invitational Tourna- 
ment, the Kentuckians came into the Chicago 
Stadium with a tremendous height advantage. 
They jumped to an early lead, but the Ram- 
blers, not to be denied, overcame this deficit, 
which was as high as 14 points, and beat their 
rivals 75 to 70 in a thriller. Just as a matter of 
precedent, Jerry Lyne, a junior who finished 
behind Schalk in scoring with 384 points, proved 
that a winning team can win even with a 
height disadvantage. Lyne being the smallest 
player on the floor at 5 ft. 10 in. led both teams 

with 28 points, and sparked the Loyola rally. 

The other games on the Chicago Stadium 
card also added to the excitement of the fans. 
Two of the top teams in the Big Ten Conference 
came into the Stadium and gave opposition 
to the Ramblers. The Big Ten Champion, 
Iowa, was the first team to take on the Ram- 
blers, and received quite a scare from Loyola 
before staving off a last minute rally to win by 
ten points 89 to 79. The other Big Ten team 
was the University of Illinois. In this game the 
Mini broke a Stadium single team scoring rec- 
ord by beating Loyola 95 to 68. But the Ram- 
blers later knocked this record off the books by 
beating the University of Western Michigan 99 
to 75. The Loyola attack avenged an earlier 
defeat of 88 to 84 by the same Broncos. Loyola 
was led by center Jack Carpenter, who ranked 
fourth in the season's scoring with 290 points, 
30 of these points coming in this game 

Added to Lyne and Carpenter, Coach 
Ireland has Ed Stube, a great clutch player 
and third highest scorer with 335 points, and 
Paul Krucker, fifth highest scorer with 212 
points to form the nucleus of a team of which 
any follower may be proud.

Track Team 

At the Daily News Relays, in which all Universities in the Chicago area 
participated, Loyola did a splendid job before a television audience. In this 
meet, the mile was run by Max Muchowicz, Pete Fox, Bob Saddler and Jack 
Egan. The two-mile relay was run by Captain Ray Mayer, Pete Fox, Bob Sad- 
dler and Jack Kiley. They witnessed victories in the Milwaukee Journal Re- 
lays, Chicago Daily News Relays and the North Central College Relays in 

The distance medley consists of Jack Egan, Pete Fox, Bob Saddler and 
Ray Mayer. This year they did not win many meets, but made impressive 
showings at many of the more important meets. 

The Loyola track team's future is bright. The team loses the services of only 
one man, the able captain, Ray Mayer. In spite of this fact, there are many 
promising freshmen on the squad who will try to compensate for this loss. 
These include Jack Kiley, Mike Curran, Ed Biesinger, Terry Noseck, Don 
Griffith, Ron Kammeret and Bill Dolan.

Swimming Team 

Under the able coaching of Don Chalmers, 
and assisted by the Co-captains Jack Sullivan 
and Larry Leaveck the swimming team finished 
its season with nine wins and four losses. They 
a'so captured the Chicago Intercollegiate 
Championship and finished second in the 
Midwest Invitational Championships. 

The mermen were led by Al Wagner who 
set a new 200-yard breaststroke record of 2:32.7 
and also by John Van Wormer who is the holder 
of two university records. He broke the old 
record in the 440-yd. freestyle with a 5:08.0 
and a 1:37.9 in the 150-yd. individual medley. 

Jack Sullivan, the team's star diver wen 

consistently and also captured the Chicago In- 
tercollegiate and Midwest Invitational diving 

The backstroke department was handled 
by John Dunne, Don Veverka, Jim Allen and 
Ray Van De Walle. 

Larry Leaveck and Bob Bobowski were 
the distance swimmers. Freshman Jack Bolger 
swam individual medley. Sprint racers include 
Tom Gilmore and Joe Doody. 

One of the biggest feats of the season was 
the defeat of Northwestern University. This was 
the first time that the swimming team defeated 
a Big Ten team in twenty-five years.

Drill Team 

The Loyola University Drill Team, a volun- 
tary organization composed of students from 
all four classes of Military Science, was organ- 
ized in February, 1952, and entered intercol- 
legiate competition in 1953. 

In both 1953 and 1954 the team has been 
awarded trophies at the Purdue University 
Invitational Drill Meet in platoon competition 

with drill units from colleges throughout the 
eastern and mid-west states. 

In addition, the team has given exhibitions 
in the Chicago Stadium, on TV and on special 
occasions by requests of various organizations- 

At the present time, Cadet Captain Conrad 
J. Irving is the Drill Master.

Since physical development is an integral part of any well-balanced 
system of education and since it is essential for the moral and physical train- 
ing of any individual, Loyola University has inaugurated an intramural pro- 
gram for the students. The Intramural Board has been organized to conduct 
these events in accordance with the principles set forth in the Loyola Intra- 
mural Constitution. 

This year the Intramural Board was composed of Joseph Carini and Bill 
Goodfellow, under the able supervision of the faculty moderator and physical 
training instructor, Mr. Leonard Zimny. 

The following contests were run this year: touch football, football accuracy 
throw, table tennis, turkey trot, volleyball, freethrow contest, basketball, horse- 
shoes, badminton, softball, chess and checkers. 

There were nine teams entered in the Loyola intramural program. 
In the football accuracy contest, Mike Revane of the B.V.D.'s tied the old 
record set by Denny O'Brien of Delta Sigma Pi. In five years of I.M. competi- 
tion, no one man has ever won it twice. 

Cementing another established intramural tradition by winning the intra- 
mural touch football tournament, the Rough Guys repeated as title holders in 
turning back a determined Alpha Delta Gamma team in the championship 
game 8-0. Only two teams have ever won the touch-football tournament 
outright in the nine years it has been an intramural sport. The Angels and 
the Rough Guys were the only two teams who have accomplished this feat. 

Bill Strong won his third consecutive table tennis singles as he beat Ed 
Zebang of the B.V.D.'s in straight sets, 21-15, 21-15 and 21-17. 

The usual cold, gloomy weather prevailed for the running of the 3rd 
annual Union-sponsored turkey trot along the shores of Lake Michigan. Lou 
Battiato of Alpha Kappa Psi took first place. 

The B.V.D.'s took first place in the volleyball contest. 

The winners of the chess and checkers tournament were Bill Strong and 
Fuad Al Wattar. This contest won its way back after a two year absence from 
the intramural roster at Lewis Towers. 

In the free throw contest, we saw Tom Kelly beat Tom Moran in the throw- 
off for the free throw contest. 

The basketball crown was won by the B.V.D.'s They defeated the Rough 
Guys 47-45 to win this crown. This year, we witnessed the best basketball 
tournament ever held at Lewis Towers. 

Alpha Kappa Psi won the team trophy for the intramural program. They 
accumulated the largest number of points for participating in the program. 

At the time that this article was written, there still remained a few contests. 
However, it is still apparent that 1955 was a very successful year for the L.T.

The Commerce Council sponsored the 
third annual Honor's Day Banquet on the 
evening of May 5th in the Victory Room of the 
Lake Shore Union House. This affair was also 
a farewell for the graduating seniors. Mr. 
William H. Conley was the guest speaker. Mr. 
Conley, assistant to the President of Marquette 
University was formerly Dean of the College of 
Commerce here at Loyola. His talk included 
a survey of what the graduating seniors might 
expect in the business world they were soon to 

At this annual affair, certain awards and 
keys are presented to students who distin- 
guish themselves for outstanding scholarship 
and leadership. Only graduating seniors are 
eligible for keys, but leadership and scholar- 
ship certificates may be awarded to under- 

Dean's Keys are given to seniors who are 
conspicuous for their loyalty, self-sacrifice, and 
achievement in extracurricular activities. This 

is perhaps the most highly esteemed of leader- 
ship awards. 

The Alumni Scholarship Award is a gold 
key given to the student with the highest 
scholastic average for his entire college 

Alpha Kappa Psi and Delta Sigma Pi, pro- 
fessional fraternities in the field of commerce, 
also present keys to the students of scholastic 
excellence. These keys are awarded by the 
fraternities' moderators. 

The scholarship certificate is designed to 
serve as an acknowledgment of high scholastic 
performance in the past and to offer incen- 
tive for its continuation in future years. To 
students who have distinguished themselves 
as outstanding participants and leaders in stu- 
dent activities go the certificates of leadership. 

Following the distribution of awards, there 
was dancing to the music of Win Buettgen. 
This helped climax the evening as one of the 
most important events in a student's career in 
the College of Commerce.

In spite of the fact that most of the Freshmen's time is consumed in getting 
acquainted with college ways, pledging and many other things, they have 
been able to prove themselves an important factor in the success which the 
College of Commerce has enjoyed. 

Robert Mullen, President of this Class, has done a fine job in getting his 
class to cooperate with the rest of the College. Besides being President, he 
also was appointed as a Congressman to the Loyola Union. 

Mary Alice McKinney, Vice-President of this class is responsible for the 
"Party Line". 

Stephen Duzansky was elected Secretary-Treasurer of the class and 
proved himself a hard worker 

We hope that they will continue to advance with this fine spirit of co- 
operation and thus act as an example for the Freshman class of next year.

Sophomore year in the College of Commerce is indeed a very trying one. 
It is one of indecision. The problem now arises as to what field of concentra- 
tion the individuals in the class must place themselves. 

In April, there was an annual Sophomore Career Day which was con- 
ducted with the intention of assisting the Sophomores in deciding upon their 
fields of concentration. Five very prominent men from commerce and industry 
in the Chicago area spoke on the relative merits of their particular fields at this 

It is apparent that a class must be united if it is to have spirit. This spirit 
when directed into the right channels benefits both the individual and his col- 
lege. Having witnessed these ends this year, we hope they continue in the

This year, the Juniors are anticipating their move into Senior year. This 
attitude for the most part has changed and they are looking more to the future 
to see what it has in store for them. This is the year in which they began their 
field of concentration. Now as they prepare to enter Senior year, we only 
hope that they have made the right choice. 

Dennis J. Price, President of the Junior Class and Vice-President of the 
Student Council did a fine job in representing his class in the College of Com- 
merce. In January he was chosen to represent the College of Commerce in 
the Loyola Union. He was later elected Treasurer of the Union. 

James Cullinan, Vice-President of the Junior Class, did a very good job 
in promoting a brochure relating a short history about the instructors in the 
College of Commerce. 

William Duffy, Secretary-Treasurer of the Junior Class, worked tirelessly 
and incessantly on council activities. He was truly an unsung hero.

(Continued from Page 42) 

It is the general consensus of opinion that this was the best va- 
riety show of them all. 

On April 19, Alpha Kappa Psi, a professional commerce fra- 
ternity, presented its annual Career Day. Prominent business- 
men from each of the fields of commerce gave the sophomores 
the highlights of their profession in order to help them choose 
their fields of concentration more easily. 

The Sophomore English Achievement Test tantalized the 
brains of our eager second year students on April 29. Those 
who survived sought to regain their usual sunny outlook that 
night and for two nights thereafter along with an all-famous or- 
chestra which supplied the music for the three-day Fair. Nu- 
merous booths were set up around the Lake Shore football field 
in order to offer a variety of entertainment for both young and 
old alike. 

We entered into a serious pursuit of learning during May for 
we knew that this was the last month of a long school year. 
After school many of us made arrangements for that summer 
job which made satisfaction of that pesky habit of eating easier. 
Seniors were making plans for that big day, and for the time 

The College of Commerce honored its outstanding students at 
the Senior Dinner Dance and Honors Day Banquet on May 
5th. The top seniors were rewarded for four years of relentless 
toil and determination. Other scholars and leaders received 
recognition for their own intellectual and social achievements. 
After the keys and certificates were distributed we returned to 
the seclusion of our rooms to prepare for the last series of final 

Seniors lingered for a few more days to put finishing touches 
on four wonderful years. Baccalaureate Services were held at 
Madonna della Strada Chapel on June 5th. This was the last time 
that many of the graduates would attend this beautiful chapel by 
the lake. With the Commencement Exercises on June 8th, the four 
years at Loyola come to an end. All will go home and display 
their degrees as a token of what they have received for labori- 
ous efforts. 

So the year ends, approximately 90 well-rounded men pass 
through the portals of Loyola University as products of the Jesuit 
Fathers who administer here. The time has come when each 
must learn to take himself, the whole man, and carry on what he 
was taught under their guidance.

In Retrospect 

Before we close the cover on another year, let us review 
what the past year has held for us. We know that it has some 
wonderful events enfolded within its embrace which we will 
cherish and which we will never want to forget. The editors 
and staff hope that the 1955 Towers will aid you to preserve 
them in years to come. 

We would like, at this time, to thank all the people who 
helped make this annual possible. This book could never have 
reached the press without their assistance. 

First, we would like to thank Mr. Raymond Langen of 
Campus Service, our publisher, whose valuable advice, assist- 
ance and personal interest helped make this book possible. 
We would also like to acknowledge the assistance offered by 
Mr. Merrill Chase of Merrill Chase Studios. Our appreciation 
is also extended to Mr. Harry McCloskey and Mr. Daniel Cahill 
for their interest and deep concern in furnishing us with infor- 
mation which we could not obtain elsewhere. Recognition is 
also given to Dean J. R. Sheriff whose interest and deep con- 
cern in our edeavor added incentive to our work. A special note 
of gratitude to the Loyola News for their fine spirit in helping 
us to publish this book. With their co-operation, our job was 
made easier. 

Our greatest thanks, however, goes to the student body and 
the faculty who requested the book. We thank you for giving 
us the opportunity to serve you and your school. 

With the completion of the 1955 Towers it is the fond dream 
and hope of your editors that those who follow us will have the 
same enthusiasm and spirit that we tried to put into this book. 

The 1955 Towers is more than a history of a year at Loyola, 
it is a heart-warming review of the hours, days, and years 
spent with our friends at the Towers. Yes, it is more than a 
mere history of a school year; it is the story of each and every 
student enrolled in that school. 

And finally, as the cover closes, remember we are all 
members of the same Army. As we prepare to face the busi- 
ness world, let us all be like St. Ignatius of Loyola and charge 
into battle with our banner raised high. And on this banner let 
there be inscribed our motto — AD MAJOREM DEI GLORIAM.
