FULTON DEBATING SOCIETY No activity at Boston College is more widely respected in outside circles than the Fulton Debating Society. Since its in- ception in 1868 as the " Senior Debating Society " , it has climbed steadily as an activity of major importance in the college. In 1890 the society adopted the name of its founder, Rev. Robert Fulton, S.J. To- day, its fame spread far and wide among intercollegiate debating circles. Especially this year has the society been the spotlight of attentions because of the burning national issues which it has de- bated. Opening its season with the " Third Term " debate with Harvard, the society followed up with a debate on the increased authority of the Federal Government with M.I.T. and Bates. The proposal for a per- manent union of the nations of the Western Hemisphere was debated with Loras Col- lege of Dubuque, Iowa, Princeton, Sienna and Holy Cross. Other debates were sched- uled with Fordham, St. Joseph ' s, Pa., St. Peter ' s and St. Michael ' s in Vermont. In- ternational debates were held with St. Pat- rick ' s and the University of Ottawa in Canada when Robert Murphy and Thomas Finnegan went across the border into the Dominion on the annual spring trip. They, together with John Bagley and Walter Clear, were the Seniors who upheld the standards of the Fulton in intercollegiate contests. Under the tutelage of Father Richard Shea, S.J., and Mr. Frederick Moriarty, S.J., the society has maintained its high standards. It is our fond hope that the underclassmen will avail themselves of this opportunity to prepare for a pvJjlic life and will carry on the unblemished tra- ditions and coveted glories of the Fulton.

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.
