CROSS AND CROWN As is inevitable in all societies and in all institutions, there are some who stand above others in point of prestige and re- spect, some who excel 1 those with whom they are associated in whatever may be their particular task of profession. Also, the society or institution of which these are members does not fail to recognize their accomplishments as worthy of reward. So it is at Boston College. There are men here who excell; there is recognition of their excellence. The particular organi- zation which fulfills this function is the Order of the Cross and Crown; its purpose is to enlist under its banner those of the Senior Class who, by past performance have marked themselves as deserving of so high an honor. Membership is based upon the attain- ment of a high degree of perfection in stud- ies and upon extensive participation in student activities. The enrolled as Knights of the Order of Cross and Crown are, by this very fact, stamped as the leaders in learning and initiative of every graduating class. It is a particularly unusual distinction to be elected to this society; and it is a particularly mnisual distinction for the class of 1941 that it should have placed such a large proportion of its members in the ranks of this Order. This year, under the direction of Knight Commander John Ambrogne and his assistants, the Messrs. O ' Reilly, Robinson, Wall and Nyren, the order enjoyed a successful season.

SODALITY The Sodality of the Blessed Virgin Mary, as is but fitting, holds the place of honor at the head of the college ' s vast array of student organizations. Its aims are most high; its benefits most enduring; its spirit most dignified. Personal sanctification and the spreading of the doctrine of Christ are the ends toward which this student group ever turns its eyes. Guided by such able leaders as Rev. Francis X. Coyne, S.J., of the Senior- Junior division, and Father Duncan, S.J., of the Freshman-Sophomore group, the va- rious committees proceed to the accom- plishment of their chosen goal — the propa- gation of the Catholic faith. The Eucha- ristic committee, from which all others flow, by its constant insistence upon attend- ance at Mass and Holy Communion; the Apostolic committee, by its unselfish and unrewarded work among the blind, the poor, and the underprivileged; the Lecture teams, through their excursions into par- ishes far and near to debate subjects of interest to every Catholic and especially appropriate to the times; the Social, Pub- licity, and Peace Committees, by their un- tiring devotion along their various lines. Great has been the tradition of the So- dality of Boston College. May it flourish in years to come as it has so notably in the past. John Bagley was chosen Prefect this year and carried out his post very com- mendably and successfully.

ALPHA SIGMA NU The Alpha Sigma Nu is the Phi Beta Kappa of Jesuit colleges. It is among the yomiger set of the college ' s student ac- tivities, having made its appearance here in the year 1939. Since that date, it has grown and flourished till at the present time it numbers in its files the names of eight men of the class of 1941. Despite the fact that the fraternity is a rather re- cent development, it is particularly sig- nificant that this year ' s graduating class should have contributed so many of its members to this highly honored group. As we go higher up the scale of human accomplishment, the requirements to be met become increasingly difficult, those who can meet them increasingly few in number. Such is the case with the Alpha Sigma Nu. These men are the aristocracy of our graduating class. As in the case of all honor societies here at the Heights, ap- pointment is made in the light of scholastic standing and participation in student ac- tivities. Those chosen for initiation into this honorable organization are those who ex- cell ill these fields. The aim of this dignified body is the spreading of a spirit of industry among the students and a feeling of loyalty to school and religion. These men, under the leadership of the versatile George Kerr, were called by Rev. John J. Long, S.J., Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, " Boston College ' s Trojan Horse of learn- ing, loyalty, and trust. " The members this year were George Kerr, Thomas Finnegan, Joseph O ' Reilly, Roy Upham, John Bagley, John Ambrogne, Thomas Galligan, and Roger Baker. They have proved themselves worthy of so great a compliment. May they ever prove worthy in the future.
