Loyola College will be judged by its fruits, by the high character, the integrity of life, the intel- lectual attainments and the courteous civility of its sons. The traditions of the Jesuit Fathers have developed in years gone by, the highest type of educated gentlemen. The foundations of a great educational in- stitution have been well laid and prudently developed in this com- munity May I not express hope that Loyola College may extend its boundaries and circle over the vacant spaces, so that the doors of a great school may cheerfully open to all that seek entrance therein. The building of a great city is a tax on our municipal authorities; the building of churches and schools is a great tax upon this growing community; the building of a great college, such as the Jesuit Fathers desire, will also be a great tax. May we not hope that they who are blessed by Almighty God with an abundance of temporal means will not forget the needs of this great Catholic center of learning in the City of Los Angeles. -I- W vv 1 Uyv My Jj m ■M ' a 61Padre avails all this if you have not learned to serve your God? The learned college graduate who misses Mass, never frequents the Sacraments, shuns his Pastor, derides the devotion of his youth, is ignorant, knows not the true values of life, is dumb, is blind, is dead. His learning has proved his undoing, for he will never render to God the things that are God ' s. Learning without service knew no part in the upbuilding of the United States. You may be a graceful orator, but if you do not serve your country you do not love her. Lip service of the so-called learned has been a curse to the United States. No such service can be rendered by a true Loyolan. Trained as he is to action, we have a right to expect that he will be outstanding in our country ' s every emergency. If all knowledge should lead you to the love of God, then prove yours by your service to the neighbor. Love of God and love of neighbor go hand in hand; the one cannot exist without the other. They are two flames rising from one fire, two streams flowing from one source. Christ remarks: " If any man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar. For he that loveth not his brother whom he seeth, how can he love his God whom he seeth not? " The only great graduate is he who combines knowledge with service, and who steps out into the community a helper of his brother. I say great advisedly; for greatness is in giving not getting. So, my sons, learn in these hallowed precincts how to serve. And in life serve faithfully, so that when the Master calls He will tell you " You profited most because you served best.

Halpin, S.J., Vice-President of the Col- lege, beginning his education at the Christian Brother ' s Col- lege and Sacred Heart College, Limerick, Ireland, continued his studies at Gonzaga University, Spokane, and received his degrees at Woodstock College of the Georgetown University, Md. He taught at Gonzaga and Seattle before coming to Loyola in 1922. REVEREND Louis B. Egan, S.J., Dean of Faculties, completed his studies at St. Louis University. He has taught Science at the University of Santa Clara, at Seattle College and Stagecraft at Creighton, Omaha. In connection with the work of Reverend Daniel A. Lord, S.J., he was occupied in designing, staging and lighting for the community productions of " God Wills It " , " Pageant of Youth " , " Pageant of Peace " , as well as for local pro- ductions in St. Louis and Chicago. He was also on the staff of " Queen ' s Work " as Illustrator and did the illustrations for " Life of the Little Flower " , by Father Lord. Another line of activity in which he participated was the work with the deaf mutes which was carried on during six years in the United States and Canada. He came to Loyola in 1926. (yUi M i uu WILLIAM Joseph Ford, M.A., LL.B., J.D., is a native son, born in Oakland, August 2, 1877. His education was se- cured at the grammar schools of Los Angeles. He attended Los Angeles High School, graduating from there to the University of California. After two years at this University he joined the United States army. Mr. Ford ' s legal studies were started in the offices of L B. Dockweiler. He has been at various times Deputy District Attorney and District Attorney. Defeated by Woolwine for re-election to the District Attorney ' s office, he has since been engaged in private practice. REVEREND Robert H. Shepherd, S.J., Principal of the High School, pursued his High School and Collegiate studies at the University of Santa Clara. After joining the Jesuit order, he fol- lowed his philosophical course at Mount Saint Michael ' s and com- pleted his Theology in Europe with the French Jesuits at Ore Place, Hastings, England. His years of teaching both in High School and College were divided between our own Loyola and Gonzaga of Spokane. mmm ARRIVAL, The strand at last. What fate awaits, Itself unseen yet seeing all?

The " Quan " and Organic laboratories, class room and Biology laboratory are located in the " Castle " and the " Bungalow " , two buildings east of the Students ' chapel. The Chemical laboratories make a creditable showing of equipment and the Biology lacks nothing in up-to-date facilities. It has been praised by experts. Even the Aquarium and Zoo are increasing in tenants. All man- ner of life, from bees and birds in observational locations, to crabs, water lilies and gold fish in the beautiful patio fountain pool. This collection is being brought together through the labors of Fathers Phee and Egan, Mr. Jenkins of the Engineering Depart- ment and the students on their class excursions. %7 i« a«j;» -i A I ' J Nor inoun i , i S!i:iilhat-iK — mm mm bn ' li iU IF the financial association of the phrase " E Pluribus Unum " is not indehbly fixed in our various and varying minds, we may assume the phrase with an equamimity which its appropriateness justifies, as the slogan of the organization known as the Associated Students of Loyola College. One — in purpose. But not even the most benighted optimist among us can truthfully assert that the Loyola Student Body is united in mind. Indeed not; for mental unity in its more extreme sense, it i:; obvious, can lead only to stagnation. And the almost phenomenal progress in the government of the aforementioned body and in the institution which it represents, belies any suspicion of such stagnation — on the other hand, demonstrates the con- trary in the highest degree. One — in action. As a social unit and a political unit, it is forg- ing relentlessly toward that goal that it has selected — a greater Loyola, a finer Loyola. And with each milestone passed, it receives a greater impetus from the work accomplished. The handwriting is on the wall: Sons of Loyola — onward! Unity, indeed, is the watchword of the day. But unity is not spontaneous; neither does mere will generate it or chance main- tain it. It comes through the common consent of those concerned and is rendered efficacious only through the continued function- ing of its articles of government. Thus we come to what is perhaps the most signifiant move in the history of the student body — the drafting and ratifying of the new Constitution. With a unified student organization al- ready in existence, the maintenance of the unity exemplified therein requires such a code as has come into being — a code that successfully defines and regulates the powers and obligations of faculty and student body. Certain of the provisions contained in the Constitution wi be of peculiar interest to students of scholastic constitutions, if such there be. Article Five, notably, provides for the institution of twelve Executive Boards, comprising an activity board for each college of what is now, substantially, the university, an Alumni Activity Board, in addition to Athletics, Publications, Forensics, Dramatics and College Affairs Boards. There is also provision in the Constitution for recall, initiative and referendum. The years will undoubtedly bring their quota of amendments to the body of the Constitution, but not even time can alter its pur- pose, the foundation upon which it rests — the promotion of Alma Maters ' welfare, that her ideals may be fulfilled. Neither has the judicial department of scholastic government been ignored. A court of justice that deals summary punishtment to those convicted of offenses against the Associated Students has found its birth in the past year. Curiously, and for reasons too profound for the average human being to fathom, this organiza- tion is known, euphoniously, as the Kangaroo Court. In spite of its soubriquet, it has become a definite power for good in the stu- dent body; a power that promises well for the future. With the years and the inevitable growth of the student body, there will come a necessary increase in the facilities for student government. Let us hope that success will not diminish the Loyola zeal, and that self-complacency will not succeed the honest endeavor that characterizes the scholastic government of 1926-1927. Sons of Loyola — onward! I FRESHMAN DEBATING SOCIETY - LAW SCHOOL Freshmen have taken gigantic strides toward the goal of forensic prowess and fame. The House of Repre- sentatives, under the efficient tutelage of Father Sullivan has striven to acquire very carefully and well the fundamentals of oral argumentation. That the House Society had developed into a truly great ex- ponent of this needed accomplishment, was proven beyond doubt in the several appearances of House teams during the second semester of the years. On March 23, Messrs. Quinn, Rothman and Dunne, representing the House and Loyola against the hith- erto undefeated seniors of Montana University, won a unanimous decision. u t-. r- 11 A second appearance was made against the Day t ollege Society when Miss Graydon took the place of Mr. Rothman. This affair was most hotly contested; but the House received the favorable portion of a two to one vote. The House teams have not debated extensively in open competition this year for, as Freshmen, they have labored on the necessary fundamentals. uv LOYOLA DEBATING SOCIETY 61 Padre THE glorious reputation of the St. Vincent ' s School of Law in the forensic arena has been heralded for many years. This year has witnessed the building up of a separate society for the day college students which rivals strongly the older and the tried societies of the Law School. Intending to represent Loyola in a scholastic way they have debated before various societies in and around Los Angeles. Mr. Kelly, S.J., as Moderator, President Herbert Meade, Harold Hurley as Vice-President and Manager, Robert Magdlen as Sec- retary and Treasurer, and William J. Walsh, the Sergeant-at- Arms, have experienced most discouraging trials. But as time went on, new members were recruited from the leaders in almost every walk of school activity, and now a debating unit exists in the day college. In the House debate, Messrs. Hurley, McGrath and Meade represented the day college; Mr. Wm. Haggerty rep- resented the society in the no-decision contest with St. Ignatius, and, in the Gold Medal Debate, Messrs. Herbert Meade and Wm. Mahedy carried the day school banner. SENIOR SODALITY r. ' S IN the early part of the school j ear, officers were elected and earnest endeavor in the Senior Sodality was begun. A lull in the enthusiasm was brought to an end when the Rev. Moderator, Fr. James J. Hayes, calling a special meeting, explained the duties and the benefits of the Sodality. With a thorough understanding of their actions, the members pledged themselves to observe faith- fully the rules of the organization, and the activities of the Sodal- ity became pronounced. Three committees were formed, one to organize the welfare work, another to arrange for the adorations of the Blessed Sacra- ment on First Fridays. A committee was prepared to correct unjust charges against Faith in the Press; panegyrics were given during May Devotions. The outstanding feature of the year was the profitable retreat at El Retiro San Inigo, Los Altos. I keeping with the spiritual and physical progress of our Col- lege, an organization new to Lo ola was brought into exist- ence through the energetic work ot Mr. Geoige S Endal, S.J., in the form of the Senior Sancturary Society. We believed that many of our college men would welcome the opportunity to again kneel at the foot of God ' s Holy Altar and perhaps teach those who had formerly been denied the opportunity. The im- mediate response among the students evinced at once the desire and the realization of the great privilege of assisting at Holy Mass in a manner second only to that of the Celebrant. In surmounting the obstacles neccessary to do this we are trained to meet the ordinary vissitudes of the work-a-day world; and if, by the humble but virile piety of our members, we can become worthy exemplars of the standard of our holy patron, " Quid hoc ad aetcriiifafem? " (What is it worth for heaven?), we believe that we shall have fulfilled our purpose in promoting a greater Loyola. li ON the evening of May i8, 1926, at Loyola College, the Ozanam Conference of the St. Vincent de Paul Society was organized. Ozanam as a young man at the Sarbonne in Paris saw the need of relief work for the poor, and, with a group of fellow students, spent odd moments in caring for the needy and unfor- tunate. We of the Ozanam Conference at Loyola have taken up the work of teaching Christian Doctrine to the Mexicans, organizing clubs for boys at the different Centers and doing such work as we can to instill religious ideals in the minds of the young. The Cen- ters taken care of by the Loyola Conference are Santa Rita, Palo Verde, Rose Hill, Morovilla and Zonal Ave Mission for Christian Doctrine and Club Work; at the General Hospital, Social Service Work. Rev. Jos. Sullivan, S.J., is Spiritual Director; President, J. Praters; Vice-President, Wm. Mahedy; Secretary, Wm. Scully; Treasurer, Jos. Du Ross. ALPHA LAMBDA SOME five years ago a very small but representaive group of the then Freshman Class of the College of Arts and Letters determined to establish at Loyola a fraternity. The purpose of this organization was the fostering of college spirit and love for our Alma Mater, by the whole-hearted co-operation of its mem- bers in all college activities. The problems of the first few years were numerous and difficult, yet no task was too difficult nor disheartening to dampen the ardor and spirit of her members. With steadfast purpose. Alpha Lambda emerged from the adolescent struggle, a robust and healthy structure — a true Loyola product, regarded as such by both Faculty and Students. And so it is with a bright reflection of the past illuminating our way, that Alpha Lambda goes forward, ever in the front ranl;.s of College activity. RHO ALPHA GAMMA THE flight of time has not dulled the ardor nor made sluggish the blood that richly courses through the veins of Loyola ' s only legal fraternity — the Rho Alpha Gamma. The members of this fraternity are full-fledged and ardently devoted to fostering the interests of their Alma Mater. As our law school has grown, so also the fraternity, until at the present time the roster numbers in excess of sixty members. The members elected Tod Sloan for the sixth, and Melvin J. Keane to the office of Loyal Kefale for the seventh year. Under his guidance the fraternity expanded and following the custom of previous years, fifteen new members were initiated into its fold. As a result of the efficiency of administrations, the Rho Alpha Gamma membership has enjoyed many happy events, contributed perhaps largely by the efforts of its entertainment committee — Tom Coony, " Eric " Dujmovich and Jack Cavanaugh. Its annual invitational formal was held at the Oakmont Country Club. Bottom Row — Hamilton, Kelly J Sullivan, T. Dunnigan, Furlong. FEELING the need of another social organization at Loyola with a high scholastic standing, twelve students of the Law de- partments joined hands and lent their aid toward forming the nucleus of a brotherhood which has become known as Sigma Phi Zeta. The " Zetas " , as they are knoM n on the campus, took the initial steps to become duly organized and officially recognized as a Fraternity on February 21, 1926. Charter members are Vin- cent Blumberg, Norman Brownyard, Vernon Brumbaugh, Thomas Dunnigan, Joseph Du Ross, Bob Furlong, Fred Kelly, John Kelly, Victor Montgomery, Carroll O ' Meara, James Sullivan and Ted Von der Ahe, all of whom have taken part in not less than one activity at Loyola. Sigma Phi Zeta is proud to claim among its twenty-one mem- bers men who are not only especially active in athletics, publica- tions, oratory and debating, but who at the same time have main- tained a high scholastic average throughout the year. BACK in the days of Avenue Fifty-two, about fourteen years ago, Professor Wismer, with even those unenvious surround- ings, started the Loyola College Orchestra. There are numerous men about the city who remember their days in Professor Wis- mer ' s Orchestra. Year by year, under the able direction of the founder, greater interest was taken in its accomplishments. It soon became one of the representative activitives of the college and the number of its outside engagements grew. These engagements were often in nowise connected with the school, but helped realize Loyola ' s ambition to take an active part in the affairs of our Catholic brethren. It is with pardonable pride that we say that re-engage- ments were many. We feel that our orchestra ranks as one of the very best throughout the Jesuit institutions of this country. eiPadreTI w 9 M B- , GLEE CLUB ■•) ir aughn Mo cr Fitzgerald Girard Despars Scwaerl Gass Klausner SeK Hamilton Kean „.n, Darrow. Albano. L nn. Barry. Daly, Magjlen. ANEW organization on the campus this year is the Glee Club. A number of men have been gathering once a week at the home of Harwood Mitchell. These men claim no high degree of perfection. They hope, however, by hard work to do, in a measure, for Loyola what the Glee Clubs of other colleges have done for their Alma Mater. A Glee Club does in its own field what any athletic activity will for the college in its sphere. Both are activi- ties which tend to good fellowship as well as to recognition for the college. The group has had the good fortune to be under the direction of Miss Smith, head of the music department of Poly- technic High School. To Miss Smith we owe more than we can here express. In future ) ' ears when the Loyola Glee Club has ful- filled the promises of this year ' s work, much of its success will be due Miss Smith and the present loyal members. The charter officers of the Club are: Alfred T. Prockter, President; William Kass, Vice-President, and Harlan Gass, Secretary. % j THE Block " L " Club of Loyola College, organized for the pur- pose of honoring all athletes who have participated in any of the major sports, has been rejuvenated from the slumbering embers of the past. This idea was followed somewhat in years gone by; but now exists as a reahty. Athletes and their praise-worthy efforts are, in a manner, rewarded for their splendid sacrifice of self and time. Club mem- bers are imbued with the idea of clean competition and giving to the various sports a code that must be rigidly followed by their successors. With the Block " L " Club ' s first year of rejuvenation, come to office what we think are capable men and true. Paul " Beno " Currin as President; James Tunney, Vice-President; Bill Mahjedy, Treasurer, and Basil Eckenroth, Sergeant-at-Arms. m THE LOYOLAN v li - N : - ic. jy. ADHEREiNG closcly to the policy " The best we know for those who want to know the best " , the Loyolan, our official college chronicle, made its appearance on the campus at regular intervals and justly merited the encomium of a representative school paper. Handicapped at the beginning of the scholastic year by the ab- sence of Phil Girard, who for three years served in the capacity of editor-in-chief, and of thr e others, Harold Ryan, Robert Bren- nan and Charles Cooney, who answered the call to a life of service in the vineyard of the Lord, •:he paper faced all difficulties with a spirit to succeed. Joseph Du Ross, former sports editor, assumed command as editor-in-chief. That he was capable and efficient became very evident in the early publications of the news organ. Much time and energy was expended by the staff in their endeavor to pre- sent news that was up-to-the-minute and of interest to all. Writing copy, composing headlines, balancing pages and selecting type are a few of the tasks performed by the embryo newspaper- men previous to each issue. The typical newspaper style in which the stories were written drew numerous comments of praise from other publications. One of the main factors in the success of the Loyolan was the cooperation between the staff and the faculty moderator, Mr. James J. Gill, who came to us this year after much experience in newspaper work. His encouraging and effi- cient advice was highly appreciated by the staff and helped to make the paper a success. Paul Grover, high school editor; James Sullivan, law editor and a willing coterie of faithful reporters are deserving of praise for their untiring efforts in behalf of the Chronicle. All in all, the year has been beneficial and pleasant with the scribes. Even now plans have been formulated for next year when it is predicted that greater progress will be evidenced. THE PUBLICITY STAFF T:e year 1926- 1927 has ushered in among other things Loyola ' s first PubHcity Staff. In other years, whatever write- ups the newspapers granted our activities, were extremely sparse and usually appeared when the affair was long past; but with the establishment of an organized Publicity system, a marked im- provement has been noted. Perhaps not a little of the success of our football season was due to the persistence of this staff, which at that time, although not officially organized, consisted of Pedo Bernard, Haddock and Marshall. The greatest handicap to publicity at that time was a lack of prominent opponents on the schedule. But with dogged deter- mination, these men kept after t he newspapers, until Loyola was accorded a recognition never before approached. Thus has it been with the other sports and activities. More since the first of March, when the committee was officially ap- pointed. The Staff is now composed of the following: Gass, Mahedy, O ' Meara, Haddock, Marshall and Bernard, who are all doing their part in putting Loyola before the public. I IN April, 1691, El Padre Salvatierra ' s landing in Baja California proclaimed the new era in the spreading to the North of the Kingdom of Christ. In the Spring of 1927 " El Padre " , the Fifth Annual Review, has been published. Unlike the landing of Admiral Otondo with his great general Salvatierra, it does not represent the advent of Christianity, nor the majestic advancement of knowledge and culture, but it does proclaim the realization of the possibilities of a Loyola of Los Angeles; a preparatory school and a university. Sensitive to the changes effected by this realization, the An- nual Review has expanded in content and material. Two forms, or 32 pages, necessary to take care of the added material — resume of courses introduced and societies fostered — have thickened the book. Four-colored art work, campus views and a comic division have increased the material for Loyola ' s 1927 edition of El Padre. I =z — ' ■ l c J - 61 Padre EL PADRE STAFF -A Commencing work in September, the staff worked out a theme and laid plans for literary efforts and a financial status sufficient to bear up the former. Office equipment was increased and a photographic department added to the Staff. Student pho- tographers have made possible, not only many interesting tableaux but necessary records of sports and events. Contracts were let, not all in one week or one month, but throughout the year, with this end in view, that photography, the printing, the cover die and the engraving could each be well considered. As a result, the bulk of the engraving was completed a month sooner than in former years and the Binder was given the opportunity of thoroughly completing his task as well as ours. Unification of literary and financial departments of the Staff was accomplished by luncheons or business meetings, when plans were cited and discussed and a spirit of cooperation fostered. The outcome of it all is a larger and more interesting year book; another step in our climb to the summit of achievement. M I I THE ALUMNI 1 IT has often been said that a college is no greater than its alumni, and yet an alumni association is the child of its Alma Mater. It reflects the principles and doctrines instilled into the hearts and minds of its members in their college training and preparation to face and conquer the problems of life. The Loyola Alumni Association is the result of the untiring efforts of the Jesuit Fathers in the Southland. May it always honor and typify those untiring efforts, and may Loyola be proud of her Alumni and never be forced to hang her head in shame. On March 24, 1926, an election of officers was called and held, and, as a result, members chose as their leaders to direct their endeavors for the coming year Geo. J. Cote as president; for First Vice-President, Leo F. S. Falder; Second Vice-President, Paul Tschirgi; as Secreta ry, James E. Babbitt; Treasurer, Thomas McGovern, and Daniel Marshall was elected to keep order at the meetings. As members of the Board of Directors, Rev. G. Fox, S.J., Arthur Connolly, Frank Moroney and Thomas Barry were elected. Under this able body of officers the association laid its plans for the ensuing year and took immediate steps to carry out its program. The new administration announced that the Annual Alumni Ball was to be held at the Alexandria Hotel. The dance was a huge success and was but a forerunner of the real progress evi- denced by the attendance at subsequent events. Announcements were then sent out that, immediately fol- lowing the Commencement on June 6th, 1926, the Alumni would hold its Annual Banquet on the campus. The result was amazing. Reservations flooded the committee. The gymnasium was filled to capacity, and, after a sumptuous repast, the President of the Alumni introduced Mr. Fred Swenson, an alumnus of Old St. Vincent ' s and turned over the chair to him. After some very encouraging remarks as to the union of the Alumni of his Alma Mater with that of Loyola ' s, Father SuHivan, the then newly appointed President of Loyola College, was introduced. He as- sured the Alumni Association of the full cooperation of the faculty and his words of praise and encouragement were received with the greatest enthusiasm. The Hon. Joseph Scott next in- spired his listeners with his usual well chosen remarks and to con- clude the program Father Core told of the needs by the Church of a greater Loyola. The next event of major importance was the House " Warm- ing of the new Faculty Building on November 6th. It was the first time the Alumni, as a body, had visited and inspected the magnificent structure. It was indeed gratifying to see the num- bers and manner in which the members attended. It was a house- warming never to be forgotten. Rev. Geo. G. Fox, S.J., our worthy moderator, planned the whole affair. It was more than a banquet. It was more favorably comparable to a Roman Feast. Father Fox prepared and cooked the entire banquet for the large numbers that attended, and from that number it was easy to pro- tsm phecy that Loyola and her Alumni Association was fast jumping to the lead. Let us hope that in the days and years to come we will be able to gather together on many similar occasions and greet old friends and old professors and enjoy such thoroughly amicable and pleasant hours. Under the officers of 1926 the Alumni thrived and prospered and their work and untiring efforts will not soon be forgotten. The next annual election of officers occurred on April 12, 1927. By unanimous choice, John M. Costello was elected to guide the destiny of the alumni for 1927, as President. James G. Donovan was elected to fill the office of First Vice-President, Paul Tschirgi, James E. Babbitt and Thomas H. McGovern were re-elected to their respective offices and Gordon J. Hatert was elected Sergeant- at-Arms. For the Board of Directors, Rev. George G. Fox, S.J., was retained as Moderator and John P. McLaughlin, Leo L Agge- ler and William J. Daze were chosen to act as such. The associa- tion is to be commended on its choice of officials and it is our sin- cere hope that by the cooperation of every member of the alumni, we will soon be able to take the position we have long cherished. Under the new administration, activities were similarly con- tinued. On Sunday, April 24th, an alumni picnic was held at President Costello ' s ranch at Calabassas. May day at Loyola saw athletic endeavors being put forth in the nature of baseball and handball. The alumni battled the Varsity on the diamond only to be defeated because of the bet- ter condition and practice of the regulars. We only hope that the members of the Varsity will fight as hard for the alumni after they are in it as they did against it on the field that day. Following the baseball game a handball tournament was held, which, to say the least, was good exercise and filled with plenty of competition. The Annual Ball in the Fiesta Room of the Ambassador Hotel, Saturday, May 14th, was a pleasing success. The banquet at the Mary Ellen, June 4, was well attended. As a lasting appeal, we urge every member of the Loyola Alumni Association who does not regularly receive notices of meetings and events to communicate with any one of the officers above mentioned and give him your full name and correct ad- dress. baBB i IN keeping with Loyola ' s phenomenal progress, both in the scholastic and athletic worlds, it was decided to launch a new precedent this year, socially. Accordingly, a first annual home- coming dance was held this year on November 6, after the big Arizona game. The immediate enthusiasm with which the announcement of this plan was met gave the committee ample justification in engaging one of the premier ballrooms of the city, that of the Elks. This newly completed building was an ideal choice. Not satisfied merely with the place, Chet Mittendorf ' s KNX Orchestra was engaged in order that the music should be of the best type. The Loyola and Arizona football teams were guests of honor. Reverend Father Egan, dean of the College and Law School; Chief Coach Bill Hess, and Line Coach Tony also lent their patronage. The decorations and the refreshments were excellent, and the committee which was composed of members of the Junior class were heartily congratulated for the success which attended their hard work. Many of the " old grads " were present and this dance was a fitting climax to a great week-end of Home- coming activities which began with the huge bonfire and rally, Friday night, and was carried through many happy events to this fitting climax — our first annual Home-coming dance. ' .i t JUNIOR-SENIOR PROM MORE than seventy-five couples attended the annual Junior- Senior Prom, held at the Costello home on the evening of Friday, May 6th. At the last moment the committee, headed by Lane Guthrie, President of the Junior Class, was faced with the necessity of obtaining a site for the affair. All arrangements had been completed for the use of the beautiful Encino Country Club, an orchestra had been secured, and the Junior Classmen had made a substantial deposit. Things were proceeding too smoothly, however, and of course something was bound to hap- pen. It did — and the Encino Country Club went into the hands of a receiver on Friday morning. John Costello, President of the Loyola Alumni, one of the finest friends of the institution, gener- ously offered the use of his beautiful Hollywood home, for which the Junior Class wishes to thank him and his mother, Mrs. Mary Costello. FROSH FROLIC CLIMAXING the affairs of the College in general and the Fresh- men in particular, the Frosh Frolic resulted in a most enjoyable evening. The affair was held at the Harmony Club in South Pasadena on May 20th. This dance, an informal affair, was well attended. Each Frosh was given two extra bids which, judging by the large number of College men present, were easily distributed. Nothing was left undone that goes to make a per- fect evening. Excellent music and decorations that equaled those used at other memorable Loyola dances were evidenced. The Frosh are a wide-awake crowd. Nothing was left undone that goes to make a perfect evening. Excellent music and decora- tions that equaled those used at other memorable Loyola dances were evidenced. The first Freshman social activity was held at the Hollywood Woman ' s Club on January 28th. This dance was restricted to the Frosh and was informal. Owing to the small attendance the sense of self -consciousness was obliterated and all present entered into the spirit of the evening. All are looking forward to many more such enjoyable affairs to be held by the class of ' 30. -4 1 SELECTING a vehicle of wide success, both on stage and screen, the Loyola Dramatic Society, under the direction of Mr. James Gill, presented their initial effort of the year in rhe three- act farce comedy, " Sick-A-Bed, " by Ethel Watt Mumford. The play was given at the Gamut Club, opening a four-day run, to enthusiastic audiences, on February 22. The swifly-moving plot carried many laughable situations and, combined with the careful selection of the cast and the strenuous work put in by the players, formed one of the greatest successes ever achieved by the Dramatic Club. Carlyle Sherwood, demon grid hero, was cast as leading man. The pseudo-sick man gave a stellar interpretation of what lengths the " eternal triangle " can lead the unwary. Lane Guthrie dis- played his talent as the shyster lawyer, while Mahedy and Tunney as the quack doctors formed an inimitable comedy team. William Walsh displayed much professional talent as the janitor. Francis Werts depicted the part of the bona-fide medic; while Tom Delany added to his long list of achievements as the treacherous Jap valet " Saji. " % 61 Padre 8 .i Bill Maheiiy and Mr. J. J. Gill Much credit is due to the three young ladies who so ably and generously lent themselves to the undertaking. Miss Celeste Rush as the day nurse, gave a most satisfactory account of herself in this role. Miss Elizabeth Nicholson, as the crotchety night nurse, showed herself a very clever comedienne and was respons- ible for many of the bright spots in the play. Lastly, Miss Peggy Boyd Anson, as the female lead, scintillated in this most exacting part. The use of a mixed cast was an innovation of this year and proved so successful that it doubtless will be continued. ON THE days of May 8 and 9 " The Divorce ? " was presented at the Playhouse as the second offering of the College dramatic year. The play, a very powerful moral drama, was staged under the direction of Mr. Gill, who had an excellent cast with which to work. It has been Mr. Gill ' s policy since coming to Loyola to use different casts, as much as possible, in the different yVi a « 61 Padre " THE DIVORCE ? " CAST productions. As a result, many new faces were seen in this pre- sentation, the outcome of spirited tryouts. Never before had such interest in dramatics been evidenced by the students. This augurs well for another successful year. Thomas Delany was chosen to play the lead over a field of fifteen aspirants, because his experience and ability were needed for the difficult part of " Dopey Doe. " His characterization of this part was excellent. The feminine lead, that of " Mamie, " " Dopey ' s " sister, was played by one of Loyola ' s own co-eds, Betty May Grayden. Miss Grayden possesses much dramatic ability and portrayed this role as no other could. Mr. John Quinn gave a powerful portrayal as " Father Gerome. " m ' LABORS A father to his fickle flock, He bears their burdens day by day; The first to toil, the last to rest. While perils hedge life ' s treacherous way. M m mmi ' m ' mmm AMct ¥ m la 16iPadre In the fall of 1920 the fullback who captained the Nittany varsity through an undefeated season and made a position on Walter Camp ' s All-American lineup was " Wild " Bill Hess. After a season as assistant coach to Hugo Bezdek and a season as coach of the U. S. C. freshman team, the year of 1923 wel- comed him to Loyola. The foundation work he laid during the first two years was remarked in ' 25, when one defeat was suffered, but proven when the ' 16 season saw no defeat. " It ' s his personality! " " It ' s the system! " We think it is the combination that makes Bill Hess the general. For, while his ideas are driven home and, without force, his word made law, yet the seeming simplicity of the system, the plays with the massive interference and ever-ready variation, are ike accountable for the success our coach has gained. To Coach Bill Hess we give the credit and praise for Loyola ' s progress in footba fen UMi Coach John Richlie COACH of high school football and college basketball, John Richlie has duties aplenty. To watch his teams at play was a pleasure and if the boys are so fortunate as to continue under his guidance the training will tell. Not only will we have an unbeaten fottball season to look back on, but a team of court men. eunequaled. John Richlie is no stranger to sports. During the year at Greyaga, Spokane, where he received his A.B. in 1923, he spent one year on th evarsity track team. For three years he was a varsity football man under the celebrated " Gus " Dorais. During three years he played with the varsity hoopsters ' quintet, and a tribute to his excellent game was the captainship in the second season. Mr. Richlie is also teaching in the High School Department, having begun this type of work at St. Leo ' s, Tacoma, over three years ago. May Coach John Richlie remain with us, and the Loyola quintet will bring home the victories. FATHER GILBERT HAD YOU been, or if you were, in San Jose in the days of ' 92 and ' 93, you would necessarily have been a baseball fan. Being a fan, you would have known Hal Chase, Charlie Doyle, George Gilbert, Charlie Graham and others. They played ball and the town turned out to watch him. You have heard of Hal and Charlie, and maybe have seen them in action — they are in the baseball business. You may not have heard of George Gilbert, but you certainly have heard of Father Gilbert, moderator of athletics at Loyola. He is the man who has forwarded the sports of Loyola for the last four years; interested and working for Loyola ' s athletic advancement. In other years he has coached baseball at Gonzaga University, Spokane, and St. Ignatius in San Francisco. This year he has guided Paul Currin ' s men through a very successful, though hard, season, gaining interest for a sport that has ceded first place to thi. ' major sport of the day. tea a m Captains Currin, Sresovich and Tunney THE local hero worshipers had a wonderful season at Loyola during 1926 and 1927. The occasion for their rejoicing was the three great athletes that led the football, basketball and baseball teams. Jim Tunney lived up to everything that was expected of him, both as a leader and a fighting player, on the varsity. On the field he was a never-ending inspiration to his men through the level-headed way in which he combined winning strategy with good, clean, sportsmanship in playing. That they chose wisely was borne out by the fact that " Brice " was rated one of the two brainiest quarterbacks on the Pacific coast. In basketball the bleacherites gazed worshipingly on Jim Sresovock as he went through a fast season at center. Jim has been a great floor man during four years of college basketball, and he climaxed a brilliant career on the courts by piloting the team through a grueling season. " Shres " was always well out in T ® 61 Padre ' H front, with his head up, and set a relentless pace of furious play ing until the final whistle. The recently-finished baseball season only served to f prove the stuff of which Paul Currin is made. The " horsehiders " wound up their schedule in a blaze of glory, due largely to the capacity of " Beno " to instill into his teammates that same old fiery spirit that drives the opposing pitcher from the field. Taken individually or as a group, Loyola ' s three major cap- tains of the year that has just slipped past, have been a credit to their college, a stimulus to the sports in which they participated and are good examples of the kind of men that Loyola is giving to the world. ROOTERS HAND in hand with a thrilling gridiron season the spirit and caliber of the rooting section has jumped from just a so-so proposition to wonderfid proportions. Under the guidance of " Garbo " Guthrie the rooters learned the effectiveness of good, fiery organized yells over the old idea of disorganized noise. At the very outset of the year frequent yell practice and rallies soon put the rooters in shape. The task was made easier by the co-operative en- thusiasm of the Student Body and the readiness with which they adopted and learned the new system of rooting. The promise of a powerful team, and the fur- ther prospect of an unbeaten team, served to enthuse the undergraduates to a pitch that was absolutely unprecedented at Loyola. Their spirit throughout the season was remarked by the daily papers, and it was pointed out that a small group of trained rooters are clearly effective if they have that old fire that makes them a crowd of maniacs from the kick-off to the final whistle. «iid The large turnout of students at the St. Ignatius game was a tribute to the team and proof of the loyalty of these howlers, since even a veritable cloudburst during the game failed to dampen their enthusiasm. Jupiter Pluvius spoiled the novel bleacher stunts that had been planned for the occasion, but was powerless to quench the battle spirit in the numbers that made the trip to the northern city. 61Padre TRAINERS HE players, whether football, baseball or basketball, whether boxing or playing tennis, do the work that counts before admiring audience. What of the man who prepares the equip- ment, of the man who works over the athletes, removes the stiffness and soreness from their muscles, devoting his time and labor that they may carry away the glory of defending the Alma Mater? The student manager and trainer may not be known to exist, but exist they do, as the equipment and fitness of the athletes attest. 61 Padre out for Oxy, proved to be one of the hardest-fought and consist- ently thrilling contests of the year, and furnished the papers with plenty of dope and long paragraphs on " upsets, " " surprises " and " unexpected showing. " Occidental kicked off to Loyola, and on the Lions ' first play, on their eight-yard line, an unfortunate pass from center resulted in a fumbled ball and an Oxy man, Bud Teachout, had merely to step over the line for their only touchdown. The kick was perfect. Following this, the Lions started a relentless drive towards the Tigers ' goal and soon shoved the ball across. Currin con- verted and the score was tied. All this in the first quarter. From then on the conflict was fierce and savage. The second quarter was hard-fought football from start to finish. From the half, it was apparent, Oxy had more than met ' S ' » 61Padre deep into fumble or their match, since several times the Lions drove the ba the Tiger territory, only to be robbed of a score by a penalty. The Loyola goal was never in real peril. The Lions made far more yards from scrimmage and displayed a far superior line. Sherwood, at center, with Bernie Donahue, Haddock and Mannion, were the mainstays; while in the backfield Hoeffer moved through the Bengals almost at will, I or else passed or kicked with deadly precision. Currin gave the confer- ence men some real scares, and Low- ery was the one who made the Lions ' score. Tunney displayed some won- derful strategy while calling signals. The game gave promise of great things to come and was a wonderful impetus to the morale and spirit of the college. REDLANDS o— LIONS 14 The 14 to o win over Redlands is no indication of the com- parative strength of the teams. Max Houser ' s Bulldogs were hope- lessly outclassed from the very outset of the struggle. In all departments of the game the Lions proved to be so far superior that the Redlands lads were thoroughly in a daze. For the first two periods the Lions were content to trifle with the Bulldogs. In the third quarter they settled down to business. Evo Pusich and Leo Hoffman took turns knifing through the opposing line and clicked off the yards with steady persistance. Hoeffer also took part in the gallop through the mud, and the drive carried the ball deep into the Bulldogs ' „ territory, where it was stopped and Red- lands punted. The punt dropped squarely on a Bulldog end and a twenty-five yard penalty was imposed on the visitors. Tunney, Lowery and Hoeffer then crawled consistently through the line to a touchdown. Hoeffer converted neatly. The Hessmen then adopted an air attack and thus marched down the field, enabling " Whitey " Hoffman to plunge over for another tally. Again Al Hoeffer ' s toe ushered the ball over for the fi point. LIONS 13— U. S. C FROSH 10 On October 9 the Lions starred in an exciting spectacle staged at the CoHseum. They proved conclusively that the " Indian sign " which the U. S. C. Frosh had on Loyola was only a myth. Rated as the better team, the Lion herd showed lots of power and scoring ability when needed. The young Trojans drew first blood in the second quarter, when a long pass and a couple of smashing, off-tackle plays enabled Saunder, Frosh halfback, to slip across for a touchdown. Smarting from the attack, the Lions turned the tables and in a few minutes Al Hoeffer plowed through guard for the first Lion score. The Peagreeners were again pound- ing at the Lion wall in the vicinity of the Lions ' twenty-five-yard line when an- other Freshman back, Kemp, kicked a field goal squarely between the poles. Coming out after the half, the Hess- men took the situation into hand and kept the ball deep in the Trojan territory for the rest of the game. They dallied within scoring distance most of the quar- ter. Donahue stopped a punt and gam- Ml 61 Padre boled twenty yards down the green for a touchdown. With the score then 13 to 10, the Lions were content to trifle around the Greek fifteen-yard Hne, where they were at the final whistle. Al Hoeffer was the local star of the day with his violent smashes through the heavy Frosh line. LIONS 18— SANTA BARBARA o By October 16, Coach Hess had put his warriors in trim, and they turned in a decidedly clean-cut win over Santa Barbara State. In the first quarter the Lions fell into step and paraded down to the Road Runners ' goal in three of the fastest marches yet completed by the Lion team. In two minutes of play Lowery was over the line, after Currin had put the ball near the visitors ' goal. Currin added the extra point. In a surprisingly short time Hoeffer had added another six points and Currin another one, and by then, the Road Runners were completely baffled. In another flashy drive Tunney and Hoeffer placed the ball on the Santa Barbara two-yard line, and Paul Currin took it over and then converted, thereby putting the score at 21 to o at the end of the first quarter. Currin Place Kicking — U. S. C. Gami . 61 Padre Opening the second period with a new team on the field, Bill Hess put the stands on edge to see how they would show against then thoroughly nettled Road Runners. McGrath A punting duel was had until the half, neither team scoring. In the third session the second string again started and soon Ned Brown rambled off the longest run of the day to the three- yard line and X ' erts took the ball over. Brown converted. In the last quarter the Lions started well, but failed to score, and then the trampled Road Runners tried a " better late than never " spurt, but it died a sudden death, having no effect upon the brilliant showing of the Purple and Gold teams. SANTA ANA J. C o— LOYOLA 34 On October i6 the Lions gave another performance equahng the one on the previous Saturday against Santa Barbara. In the same fashion as before, the Hessmen took the situation over and proceeded to gallop hither and thither and yon. The first drive 61 Padre was staged by Tunney and Hoeffer. The redheaded signal chanter scampered over for the first score. After the Saints had returned the kickoflf to their forty-yard hne, he intercepted a pass and the ball was soon on the two-yard mark. Currin then stepped over for the second score. The third drive, in which Tun- ney, Currin and Lowery played starring roles, brought the ball within scoring dis- tance, and Hoeffer rode over center for the third touchdown. Hess started a complete new team at the second quarter. Von der Ahe and Ned Brown kept up the running attack until Von galloped over the last chalk line for another tally. In the third ses-| sion, Werts intercepted a pass, and an- other onslaught began, in which Parisi and Ned Brown assisted with much yardage, der Ahe obliged again and turned in the last score of the game with a wide tackle play. The fourth quarter went along serenely until the very end, when a pass from Von der Ahe to Brown netted sixty-five yards. 61 Padre Another long pass, with TilHe Parisi on the receiving end, almost resulted in another score, but Tillie was forced out of bounds only a scant few inches from the goal line, as the final whistle blew. A great day for the Lion herd, and especially for Coach Toney ' s linemen; but a tough day for the Dons. ARIZONA 6— LOYOLA 2.7 The homecoming was a brilliant affair. | The stands were full and colorful, the teams ¥ i in perfect shape and the day an ideal one for football. The Lumberjacks remained somewhat of an unknown quantity till late in the season. Then what meager reports were garnered by the local dopesters con- ceded the Arizona boys a good chance. Advance reports told of an unspotted slate, and top-heavy scores. Rumor had it that they craved enough opposition to make them extend themselves, to show their full power. They got it. Arizona kicked off to O ' Brien, who zigzagged his way to the thirty-yard line, where he went down beneath a pile of Ari- zona beef. In the melee he lost the ball to a visiting lad. The Brown Off on an End Run — Arizona Game m 61 Padre Lumberjacks then began hammering at the Hne, but each attempt taught them how futile it was, so the big bad men from Arizona tried to drop kick, but it was unsuccessful. From then on the show belonged to the Lions, and they proceeded to go up and down the field at will, with the helpless Lumberjacks just man- aging to keep their feet. Lowery scored the first touchdown and Currin converted. Currin, Lowery, Tunney and Hoeffer comprised the perfect backfield and clicked off the yards for steady gains. On the line Arloski, Donahue, Sherwood, Haddock and Furlong had things all their own way. In the third quarter a series of bucks and passes brought the ball inside the danger zone, and a perfect criss-cross, with Currin carrying the ball, started another scoring bee, bringing the Lion score to 27. The last quarter held the only bright spot for the Lumberjacks. A fumble deep in Lion territory resulted in their only score. They were unable to con- vert, and when the whistle blew the tally sheet showed a 27 to 6 result. 6iPadre LOYOLA i8— CHRISTIAN o As the featured stars of the Panthers ' homecoming day, the hard-hitting Lions hved up to their reputation and battled their way to the top of a 28 to o score. Moore Field was the scene of the massacre and the Christians, contrary to tradition, did everything but meekly wait to be de- voured. They fought hard, but couldn ' t stand the pace. In the first quarter a screened passing attack carried the Panthers well towards the Lions ' den, but this was quickly broken up. Currin and Lowery then started marching and, after a good run by Hoeffer, Captain Tunney slipped through for the first marker. The next touchdown came in the sec- ond start after a forty-yard excursion by f Lowery, an eleven-yard jaunt by Tunney and a pass, Tunney to Hoeffer, gave Beno Currin the chance. He went across on a left-end run. Then the second string went in and held the pace till the half. The third period found the first squad back on the field. The line worked wonderfully and soon gave Lowery an opportunity to go through guard for an- other score. Brov AY L . .Jtj gm Stopping Our End Run — Arizona Game 61 Padre In the last the show was enHvened by the off-tackle dashes of Lowery and Currin, and Tunney paved the way and little " Tillie " took a flying trip across the chalk for the last score, a total of twenty-eight in all. ST. IGNATIUS 6— LOYOLA 6 The prospect of a clean slate for the season caused the Lions to prepare a special defeat for the Gray Fog. They arrived in San Francisco all ready for battle, but the weather man put aside their hopes. The tilt was staged in a sea of mud and during a pouring rain. As a result the Hessmen just couldn ' t get started. A light, fast team did not have a chance, but they battled the Fog to a standstill, just the same. At the very beginning the Lions showed their wares, when Captain Tunney ran the ball back to the twenty-five yard line and a series of line drives pushed it further. A punting duel then took place and the ball was finally found on the Northerners ' twenty-yard line. Arloski ruined their punt, so they repeated the play, and he smeared it a second time, recovering the ball himself. ' hckenroth £No Carries the Bail — Arizona Gami ' 1 ' VARSITY BASKETBALL MOLESKINS and the trainer ' s whistle were still in evidence on the outer campus, when from the gymnasium still other whistles sounded as though all the traffic cops in town were hold- ing a dress rehearsal for the noon-hour rush. But the traffic of Seventh and Broadway hurried not a mite faster than did the squad abbreviated costume which started their " training under Coach John Richlie towards the middle of November. The hoops looked mighty small and far between during those first days, but, build- ing up on the nucleus of the preceding year and with intensive training, January 5 saw the opening game of the varsity, pitted against Whittier, with a return game on January 11. Southwestern ' s veteran team came next, followed by the Christian Col- Sresovitch lege tussle. Two games with the Venice Alumni; two also with the S. A. A. S.; then, in turn, the " Y, " Southwestern, Christian College and, finally, again the " Y. " Thus far the schedule. " Shres, " on the pivot position, piloted the boys through the season. Nature was good to the Cap in endowing him with stilt- like legs, which he used to advantage in mighty clever floor work. " Shres " hounded the bounding leather from one end of the court to the other, and was a telling factor in feeding the forwards — Mclsaac, Despars, Eckenroth and West — as Coach Richlie shifted one or the other to the front trenches. In piling up tallies, Mclsaac led the field an easy first. 61Padre Gus, as captain-elect of the 1927-192? season, well deserves the honor. His running mates, " Deak " Despars, " Bay " Eckenroth and " Tuna " West, did their share in finding the iron ring and, with the ripening of an- other season, should promise well as wearers of the striped jerseys. At the other end of the floor Tunney and Bernie Donahue threw their beef against the onslaughts of charging hoopsters. Davis and Joyce relieved the two vets and knocked down many " an otherwise well-directed shot. Dougherty and Fitzgerald took their turns at tipping off and, with Kass, Marshall, Haggerty and Gass, rounded out the Lions ' squad. This season marks Sresovich ' s last ap- pearance on the floor, leaving all the other members of the squad as a foundation for next vear ' s work. CHRISTIAN COLLEGE vs. LOYOLA THE Lion hoopsters broke into the win column at the expense of the Christian College Panthers on the evening of January 22. The fracas took place in the I anthers ' inclosure and was a source of gratification to Coach Richlie, being the first time the boys came through this season. Due to the smallness of the court the game was featured by fast floorwork and organized passing, although the score remain- ed comparatively small, due to the great work of the guards. Gus Mclsaac, Loyola ' s clever little forward, not only played a wonderful floor game, but opened up a bombardment on the basket and garnered high point honors with thirteen digits. SOUTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY vs. LOYOLA Coach Richlie ' s stalwart charges took one on the chin when they matched forces with the Southwestern University cohorts. It was decidedly an off night for the locals as none of the boys could find the basket with consistency. Mclsaac was high point man for the Lions with Sresovich close behind. WHITTIER vs. LOYOLA A novelty was innovated into Loyola athletic circles when the newly formed Lion Freshman team played the strong Trojan Babes as a preliminary. Although on the short end of the score, the Lion yearlings put up a good fight and lost no prestige as the opponents are rated as one of the best quintets in the South. The Frosh deserve no little praise for their efforts and with a little more practice and organization should prove a formidable outfit to any first year team. Coach Johnny Richlie ' s Lion quintet got off to a bad start by dropping the first two tilts of the season, both defeats coming at the hands of Leo Calland ' s Whittier team. A ghmpse of mid-season basketball was obtained in the cur- tain-raiser when the Whittier Poets outscored Loyola, 20-16. The two teams were evenly matched and the final result was a mystery M until a five-minute overtime period had been completed. But the pre-season experience obtained in practice games by the Poets enabled them to knot the score in the last breath of the regular period, and forge ahead to victory in the one that followed. The lead see-sawed back and forth until near the end of the half, when Bay Eckrenroth, replacing Despars, initiated his varsity career with a wonderful arch from the middle of the court. Both teams displayed wonderful defensive work and near-in shots were few and far between. The half ended with the Lions leading 10-6. The Poets freshened their line-up with three new names. But the Lions showed utter disregard for pre-game dope, and with Eckenroth, Mclsaac and Donohue consistently banging the backboard, the game neared an end with the locals showing the way, 16-10. A let-up in the man-for-man system of de fense allowed Sucksdorf and Denny to break through for a pair of baskets in the last two minutes of play, and the score was tied at the whistle. Li the extra period, the Lions fought gamely to keep the lead, but Sucksdorf managed to pierce the defense for two markers. WHITTIER vs. LOYOLA Whittier ' s second victory was much more decisive than the first engagement. The Loyola offense seemed powerless, while Tunney seemed to be the only Lion able to keep the ball away from the fast-moving Quakers. Coach Richlie ' s boys are capable of much better basketball than was exhibited. The second five was started against the Poets but substitu- tions were made after they had allowed Denny and his cohorts to run up 14 digits. But even the select quintet could not out- guess the fleet Whittier lads. The Lions came back roaring in the second half with Mc- lsaac and Eckenroth registering, but it was only a flash in the pan. Y. M. C. A. vs. LOYOLA The Lions played host to the fast Traveling " Y " quintet from the local A. A. U. on Feb. i 2. Gus Mclsaacs led the team in a 61Padre I ms old time form and showed the way to a 2. -, - - victory. It was a traditional fight between the old-time rivals. Tunney ' s close guarding was responsible for the low score. SOUTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY vs. LOYOLA Southwestern U continued their traditional jinx over the Lions on Feb. 16 by the score of 28-24. The game was played at the Poly Hi gymnasium. Coach Richlie ' s boys led until the last few minutes, but the fates must be satisfied and four consecutive baskets in the waning moments of the game brought home the final and winning tilt of then " annual series. Mclsaacs had hit his stride and led the scoring with fourteen points. CHRISTIAN COLLEGE 15. LOYOLA In a surprise thrill game the Christian College Panthers held the Lions 16-14 in a torrid overtime struggle. The Casaba fans were treated to repeated thrills and the struggle was in doubt until Sresovich registered in the last thirty seconds of play to knot the game. In the overtime period Mclssacs scored the winning basket. Y. M. C. A. vs. LOYOLA Winding up their court season the Lions repeated over the Y. M. C. A. with a 24-12 victory. It was a fitting close to the schedule as Richlie ' s boys were superior in every department of the game. Eckenroth was the starring individual of the contest with 8 digits to his credit. Sresovich and Davis co-starred in the victory with their fast floor work. Rosen looked best for the losers. sa !l Loyola, 7 Whittier, i i Falling short of one run the Lions were subdued by the Whit- tier Poets in one of the hardest fought games of the season. Heavy hitting of Davis and Mclssac featured the game. Loyola, 7 L. A. A. C, 13 In this encounter the Clubmen had things their own way and decisively took the Lions into camp. Tunney again starred with the hickory. Loyola, 2 U. S. C. Dentists, o In this game Kelley featured on the mound and had things his own way and completely shut out the Dentists. On May 2, the baseball team met and defeated the Alumni 0-2. Many were the old grads who put in their appearance, some who first learned to play baseball at Garvanza. The old grads showed the need of practice, but what they lacked in form they made up in spirit and it was a much better game than the score indicated. The Alumni used four twirlers, while the Varsity used Mclssac the entire distance. Davis and Tunney were the stars for the collegiates, while McDermott starred for the Alumni. The feature of the game was a one-handed catch of a high fly by Currin. R. H. E. Alumni 2 5 Varsity 10 10 i Varsity — Donahue — L.F. Alumni — Keenan — 3B. Marshall— L.F. Elder— L.F. C. Girad— R.F.

While all students are, more or less, interested in the art of scrambling ears, as our old friend Witwer puts it, we think that the credit for bringing this interest to a head goes to that good sport. Dr. Montgomery. Early last semester Dr. Montgomery let it be known that he would give his time several nights a week to coach any one who wished to engage in the manly art of fisticuffs. Soon, due to the efforts of John Haddock and Tom Delany, an informal card was arranged with the University of California at Los Angeles. This marked a turning point in the status of the sport on the campus. Higgins, Eckenroth, Kearney, Aguayo, Erlanger and Laucke, who took part in the card with the Branch, formed the nucleus of Loyola ' s first boxing team. A return card with the Branchers, held in our own gym, showed Loyola to have the material that champs are made of. George Mullaney had now become coach, Tom Delany, trainer and Haddock, manager. The combined efforts of these three men brought to hght the fact that Loyola was not taking her proper place in the realms of this sport. To remedy this defect Loyola entered the Pacific Coast Intercollegiate Boxing Tournament, held at Stanford University on March ii. Reams could be written about this tournament and the showing made by Eckenroth, Erlanger, Hurley and Laucke. That they brought glory to the name of Loyola is a foregone conclu- sion. Loyola was the smallest college entered and, considered proportionately, made the best showing. It must also be noted that Loyola is a charter member of this conference. On the first night of the tournament Jim Hurley was awarded a decision over Ridley, after the fight had gone an extra round. On this night also Erlanger scored a technical knockout over Iserquin (Cal.). Erlanger drew and put away two men in his initial appearance — Shall of Stanford and Garner of Davis. But the big surprise of the tournament came in the second night of the meet. In the finals Eckenroth again made his appearance and drew for his playmate Besbeck of U. C. L. A. The fight went three rounds and at the end the judges awarded to the Loyola man the intercollegiate championship of the Far West. So, Loyola ' s first year in boxing. lAl V t LOYOLA TENNIS THE tennis team of Loyola College belongs to no conference. Consequently the in- f tercoUegiate games are difficult to obtain dur- ing the tennis season. What time the games are generally obtainable is after the season, and after this book has gone to press. For that rea- son all the games cannot be found herein. However, with the new concrete courts, enthusiasm for this sport is being fostered. When the game is truly on the campus, hidden tennis stars will come to the fore, a desire to join a conference, and, when in the conference, there will be no end of matches to be played. Should it not be so, that a College of the South should have a game that finds so many devotees in the South. Should not a College that, for its size, has representatives in such a variety of sports, also be represented in this fast and interesting game so com- mon in the Southland? How beneficial, then, is the advent of courts to Loyola. An- other sport offers recreation and exercise to many who have in the past been placed on the list as non-athletes. In the future, they too, will bear the name of Loyola onto the athletic field, and, we hope, bear it victoriously. Foremost among the men who have de- fended Loyola ' s colors on the courts, is Joe Saunders, runner up in the California Amateur Matches. Joe has been on the team for several years and captained it for the greater part of the time. He is one of the most assiduous racket-wielders Loyola has ever produced. Joe Ciano, playing last year for the first time on Loyola ' s team, made a very creditable m m. 1 w a ' i ' ' ! 61 Padre showing, and this year has surpassed all ex- pectations around the campus. Starting in as a close second to Saunders, Ciano gained much favorable comment in local sport circles as a man who will not long remain out of the prize money. In the singles and doubles he has kept pace with the best. With Despars, an old-timer from the Prep department, and Callahan, a recent ac- quisition from the Frosh class, the team round- ed out in great shape. Buddy Ryan keeps his old form and bats them out with the best. Saunders and Ciano won the doubles. Loyola is. Soiithwcstcru University In the singles: Ciano, 6-3, 6-4; Saunders, 6-3, 0-6, 7-5; Despars, 6-4, 4-6, 6-4. Ryan won by default. Loyola vs. U. S. C: Loyola won the first doubles, U. S. C. took the second flight. Ciano, 6-4, 6-3; Saunders, 6-4, 6-2; Despars, 6-4, 11-9; Callahan, 6-2, 6-2. Meeting teams touted highly on the Pacific Coast, the Loyola men, as a team, have ably up- held the honor of the school. Practicing under great handicaps, namely, the lack of adequate courts, and consequently the necessity of having to use private courts whenever available, train- ing was carried on in a very desultory fashion. But nevertheless the men have acquitted themselves nobly, and, when called upon to give that last spurt of exhausted effort, they came through with the old Loyola grit and spirit. THE PASSING YEARS Swiftly the tides of life e ' er onward flow, Unto that unknown shore so far away, Bearing some friend or loved one day by day, Upon their waves, now rippling fast, now slow. Where dear ones sleep and unseen angels pray; Nor pleading tears, nor breaking hearts can stay The passing years that rob us as they go. George G. Babbitt, M.D. J n ' ) High SdiooJ ' ' I, aoV ' sJow.

" ' V ' ■ f: m already vowed to his patron, St. Francis Xavier, to whom he owed his recovery from a dangerous illness, that he would devote his life to missionary service. Arriving in Mexico in 1681, he proceeded two years later, as rector of the Missions, with an expedition de- signed to colonize California; but Providence reserved him for the more promising field of what is now Northern Sonora and South- ern Arizona. Father Kino arrived in that territory, then known as Pimeria Alta, in 1687, beginning a term of service that was to last for twenty-four years. Some fifteen mile sabove the frontier pueblo of Cucurpe, he found his first Mission, that of Our Lady of Dolors. From this Mission, Father Kino and his companions, Jesuits and soldiers, pushed the frontier of missionary work and explora- tion across Arizona to the Gila and Colorado rivers. As an explorer. Father Kino ranks among the greatest of the Southwest. 61Padre From his Mission Dolores, during the twenty-four years of his apostohc ministry, he made over fifty journeys which varied in length from one hundred to a thousand miles. He crossed repeat- edly in various directions all of the country between the Mag- dalena and the Gila Rivers, and between the San Pedro and Colo- rado. By 1695, he had established a chain of Missions up and down the valley of Altar, and had pushed the missionary frontier to the Gila River. In 1703, in company with Father Salvatierra, he had journeyed northward through Sonora, and, standing on the lofty peak of Superstition Range, they looked across the Colorado River and planned that the chain of Missions in Arizona should at some future time be connected with the Missions of Lower California and with the Missions to be founded up the coast to the Port of Monterey. But the fulfillment of their plans was reserved, seventy years later, for their successors, the sons of St. Francis. m ♦9 ' 1 ■• tV k Father Kino ' s diaries reveal not only a consummg zeal for the Faith, but a tender and paternal love for his red-skinned flock. During the twenty-four years of the missionary labors, he bap- tized forty-eight thousand Indians, gathering them into resident Missions in Arizona and Sonora, by founding stock-ranches and building churches for them. In 1692, he built a small chapel at San Xavier del Bac, which he replaced with a larger building in 1697. On April 28th, 1700, he began close by the old structure, built three years before, the building of the third edifice, the per- manent church which stands to this day. In his diary of that date he wrote: " We began today the foundations of the very large and capacious church (Iglesia) of San Xavier del Bac, all the many people (i.e. three thousand Indians) working with much pleasure and zeal; some in digging for the foundations, others in hauling many and very good stones of texontle, from a place about a quarter of a league away. " k@ ' 61Padre The building thus begun was completed by Father Gonzalvo, whom Father Kino had placed in charge of San Xavier ' s. After the expulsion of the Jesuits, the Mission of San Xavier was in charge of the Franciscan, Father Garces, who suffered death at the hands of the Yuma Indians, several years later. In 1797, the Franciscan, Father Narciso Gutieres, then in charge, completed some repairs, adding an additional tower, and placing the date of the completion of his repairs, 1797, over the doorway. In the early years of 1900, the church was again repaired and restored as it stands today by the Rt. Rev. Henry Granjon, D.D., then Bishop of Tucson, and the Franciscan Fathers took charge of it. In 1 70 1, Father Kino began the building of the church of Mission San Gabriel at Guebavi, and in 1702, that of Mission San Cajetan at Tumacacori, which still stands, a venerable Mission ruin, and now made a National Monument by the United States Government. The Jesuit Missions, as well in Arizona as in Lower Cali- fornia, are stone affairs, with churches designed after a general scheme. Thus the interior dimensions almost universally approxi- mate the following, viz: Length, about one hundred and twenty feet; width, about twenty-one feet; height, varied from thirty- seven to almost within sixty feet. The walls are generally three or four feet in thickness. There is usually a belfry and a choir- loft approached by a spiral staircase. The ceilings were vaulted and domed, the altar carvings were beautifully executed, and a touch of the Moorish shows in the exterior architecture and deco- rations of these structures. Finally, and it is a distinctive feature, these stone " Iglesias " were roofed, not with title nor thatch, but enduringly with stones, gravel, and cement. Father Kino died in 171 1. He had blazed the trail. The record of the next half century after the completion of his labors, amounts to an accumulation of achievements along lines that he had already laid down. Fathers Campos, Sedelmayr, Ugarte, Kel- ler, and Consag, of the Society of Jesus, carried on explorations in the Gila-Colorado country and in the Gulf of California. The most important result of their work, was the definite proof of Father Kino ' s discovery that Lower California was a peninsula. Noteworthy also were the problems in geography arising from » Vt£ ,i m Father Sedelmayr ' s journey in 1744 when he ascended the Colo- rado to Bill Williams Fork, and the planning of a trail to connect San Xavier del Bac with the Port of Monterey. While Father Kino was laboring in Arizona and Sonora, Father Salvatierra followed the same plan in establishing his work. He and his fellow-Jesuits went about their chosen task, erecting Missions, gathering the Indians into Pueblos, teaching them agri- culture, stock-raising, saddlery, shoe-making, improving on the native fashion of weaving, and for beautifying of the church services, instructing them in music and singing. For more than twenty years the history of Lower California is Httle more than the biography of Father Salvatierra. After, his death, in 17 17, his work was carried on by his Jesuit brethren, and their work it was that opened the way for the colonization of Upper California. Want of space forbids us going into detail, but we subjoin to the end of this article a list of some of the Missions, with the name of the founders and the date of their foundation. Many of these structures, as may be seen from the illustrations, have defied the march of time and the warring of the elements, and have been in constant use down to the present day. In the Spring of 1768, without any previous warning, the Society of Jesus was expelled from Arizona, from Lower Cali- fornia, and from all the Spanish Dominions. To summarize the achievements of the Jesuits in Baja CaHfornia, we quote the words of the well-known writer, A. W. North: " During their seventy years sojourn in Baja California, the Jesuits had chartered the east coast, and explored the east and west coasts of the Peninsula and the islands adjacent thereto; they explored the interior to within about one hundred miles of the present San Diego; they had brought about the institution of the Pious Fund; they had founded twenty-three Mission establish- ments; they had erected churches of stone and beautified them; they had formulated a system of mission life never thereafter sur- passed; they had not only instructed the Indians in religious mat- ters, but had taught them many of the useful arts; they had made an open highway connecting the Missions with each other and with Loreto; they had taken scientific and geographical notes concerning the country and prepared ethnological reports on the native races; they had cultivated the arable lands and inaugurated a system of irrigation which, had they been given time for a more northerly advance, would have given Upper Cahfornia a marve- lous agricultural development early in 1800. Considering the abundance of level land, the water, and the tens of thousands of Indians about them, the establishment by the Franciscans (at a later time) of twenty-one Missions in Alta California, is no cir- cumstance to the peninsular work of the Jesuits. Finally, the Jesuits of California, were men of high education, many of them of noble birth; of their labors in the Peninsula, it has been said with truth: ' that remote as was the land and small the nation, there are few chapters in the history of the world on which the mind can turn with so sincere an admiration.

" Xts H THE Student Body meetings were held once a week during the past year. Some of these Assembhes were together with the College when something of moment to all was proposed. Travel- ing lecturers, readers, and visitors from the other Jesuit schools on the Coast were received at these assemblies. The Assembly, an innovation, is a practical way of distribut- ing news, calling on Student Body aid and so on. For a time the High School Student Body was in a way subject to that of the College, being under the jurisdiction of the Kangaroo court. Three High School students were on the Jury and one out of three Executioners. , , , j . r The High School Student Body, through the hard work ot the officers and cooperation of the Assembly, beginning the year with a heavy debt, has obtained new equipment for football and basketball teams, has paid travelling bills and yet has turned in a balance that shows only a slight deficit. PILGRIMAGE LOYOLA HIGH SCHOOL, as cvcry other Jesuit institution throughout the world, was represented in the first pilgrim- age to Rome in honor of St. Aloysius, the patron of youth. Young men gathered from the far corners of the earth to the center of the Catholic world to pay tribute and homage to their patron, St. Aloysius. Never before has such a wonderful and inspiring union of the youth of the world taken place. This Aloysian Centenary celebration lasted two weeks, which time the pilgrims spent in prayer and visiting the cata- combs and historic temples of worship, including St. Peter and Paul ' s Cathedrals. As a climax to the spiritual exercises, the great throng of Sodalists heard mass in honor of the famous Saint. Joseph Huesman and Victor Valla were Loyola ' s fortunate delegates. Not only did these young men enjoy a trip made won- derful by the careful guidance of Father Gleason and the kind- ness of sister colleges along the route, but were given the honor of seeing his Holiness, Pope Pious XL, and receiving from his hands the Sacred Body and Blood of their Infant King. This visit was spent in the Sacred City during the Season of Seasons, when the deeds which had inspired their youthful patron were being recalled in Rome, even more reverently than else- where, by the simple Judean hillside scene and the bare, cold crib in the stable. They were privileged to spend Christmas in Rome. THE RETREAT ONCE more the cheerful shouts and games, so characteristic at Loyola, ceased; for something of a graver nature, re- quiring deeper concentration, filled the hearts of every Loyolan- the Annual Retreat. No more fitting time could have been selected in which to instill in every soul the true significance of this spiritual seclusion than during the week set aside by Holy Mother Church to review the sufferings of Jesus Christ in prov- ing His Love for men. NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH THE play, " Nothing But the Truth " , presented by the Senior class, was not only the first dramatic production of the year, but the first ever presented by Loyoa High School. Mr. James J. Gill, Dramatic Director of College and High School, very capably selected his men. Both in training inexperienced boys and doing it in the short interval allotted him for preparation, he is to be praised. Martin McGarry, who played the lead, was supported by a talented group of young men: C. Vickers, W. Mead, R. Lee, R. Grant, W. MuUin, L. Oaks, H. Osborne, F. Schenk, F. Feeley and F. E. Burke. The task of providing the props was ably taken care of by Joe Coughlin. A splendid play, replete with laughs and thrills. If the High School can do so well in the initial show, what may we expect from those of succeeding years when weeks and even months of training will stand behind them. ONE of the most encouraged activities of the student body in every Jesuit school is that of debating. How well this tradition of enthusiasm and skill in public speaking has been kept at Loyola is familiar to all who have listened to the accomplished speakers who have so often and so successfully upheld Loyola ' s name and honor on the public platform. Three enthusiastic societies continue this tradition in the High School. The oldest of these is the Fr. Rupert Debating Society, open to students of the two upper years in High School. Under the guidance of the new Moderator, Fr. Feeley, S. J., this organization began the Fall Semester with the largest enrollment in its history. The weekly forensic clashes among the members soon brought out the talent of the newcomers, and many a lively battle of wits took place, deciding the difficult questions con- t Ji h- 61Padre nected with Philippine Independence, the Mexican Situation, the Coal Strike, etc. The liveliest contest of the first semester took place on the evening of December 17, when the Vincent B. Vaughan Debating Society invaded our hall with the determination to be the first of the High School societies to conquer the Fr. Rupert in an intra- mural debate. The question at issue was, " Resolved, that the United States should recognize the present government of Rus- sia. " After a hotly-contested debate the decision was awarded to the fiery team from the Vincent B. Vaughan Society, who defended the negative side of the question. The difficult task of upholding the affirmative side was ably accomplished by M. McGarry, H. Koberle and R. Dietrich of the Fr. Rupert Society. Great credit is especially due to McGarry, who, substituting in the place of C. J. Vickers on a day ' s notice, was adjudged the second best speaker of the evening. On March 11, Frank Burke and Charles Vickers defended the negative side of the question, " Resolved, that the use of the installment plan of credit is an economic detriment to the nation, " against the Fiuntington Park High School. A week later T. Roberts, J. Coleman and C. J. Vickers met Compton High School on the same question. At the request of Huntington Park and Compton, both these debates were no- decision. Of course the big event of the debating year is the Annual Gold Medal Debate. To choose the representative of the Fr. Rupert and Vincent B. Vaughan Societies in this contest a dual debate was arranged between the two societies on the question, " Resolved, that foreign control should be withdrawn from China. " R. Grant, Bruttig and M. McGarry upheld the affirmative against Von der Ahe, Lamb and DiMuro of the Vincent B. Vaughan, while Meade, F. Burke and C. Vickers formed the negative team against C. OTaughlin, Weber and Callahan. The decision was awarded to the negative in both debates. Martin McGarry and Charles Vickers, who won the Senior Medal, were the two chosen to represent the Fr. Rupert Society. eiPadref was judged the best speaker of the evening. The honor of being the first debating society ' to appear publicly this school year, falls likewise to the Vincent B. Vaughan organization. Three cred- itable exhibitions before the students of St. Mathew ' s, Blessed Sac- rament and St. Paul ' s, respectively, afforded not only valuable ex- perience to us but also served to enthuse the younger students over the art of verbal combat. A dual debate with the Manual Arts High School Junior division added two more victories to our number, one of which was of a undecided nature, the decision being unanimous, and the two best speakers, Karl Von Der Ahe and Joseph Di Muro, being likewise of our society. To our credit be it known that the best speakers in the other encounter would have fallen to Charles Callahan, had the judges been instructed to cast a vote in that regard. A dual debate with Joseph Scott Debating Society saw it evenly divided with the negative teams of both societies winning an unanimous vote. K. Von Der Ahe again proved his enviable talent for verbal display by winning first honors in his debate. Charles Lamb was judged equal to his opponent in another con- test, while C. Frusher took second honors. In view of the fact that this was Vincent B. Vaughan ' s second team with but one excep- tion, the results speak well for the organization. A week later saw us facing the Father Ruppert society, and here once more much credit was reflected upon the name of V. B. Vaughan. Younger though we were, we took one debate. Karl Von der Ahe was again chosen best speaker for one side, and J. Di Muro third best. While in the other debate, Chas. Callahan gained second, yielding only to the experienced M. McGarry. In the Gold Medal Debate, we hold positions of honor, the first affirmative and third negative. In view of these facts, we feel that our pride in the Society is justified. JOSEPH SCOTT DEBATING SOCIETY 4 ' §. ? .! 9:} THE Joseph Scott debating Society held its hrst mcctinj; on Friday evening, September 24. The usual spirit and en- thusiasm of Loyola was a feature that marked the beginning of this Society and the moderator, Mr. Stanislaus J. Fitzgerald, S.J., insisted from the start that the members should not strive so much to enlarge their numbers as to enhance the talents of the few who would show unrelenting fidelity. In the latter part of the debating season the society had two successful public showings. One was held at Huntington Park at Saint Mathias ' School where Messrs. Walsh, Morse and Monro defended the affirmative side of the question which read, " Re- solved, That Professional Football will not prosper. " The nega- tive won. The second debate of importance was a dual debate with the Vincent B. Vaughn Society in which both Louis Litschi and T. Staley showed that they possessed great forensic ability. Fience these two were chosen to represent their Society in the Gold Medal Debate. THOUGH the number of members active In the work of this Sodahty is rather small the quality and quantity of their work makes up for any such deficiency. One reason for the small mem- bership is to be found in the fact that the Sodality meets at eight o ' clock every Friday morning. Such was the procedure for the first semester. The last semester witnessed the change of the hour to eight- thirty and a consequent increase in the number who each week gather in the student ' s chapel to hear Mass and receive instructions from the faculty moderator, Rev. Father Hourican. The climax of the Sodality Year was reached on May sixth, when the enroll- ment of sixteen new members into the organization took place at the weekly mass. All the new members received Fioly Com- munion, a truly inspiring sight. The new members brought the total of those actively interested in the Sodality to fifty students. 61 Padre SANCTUARY SOCIETY To CARDS the close of the school year, high school students were invited to serve the many six-thirty masses said in the two chapels. To serve at Mass, even though it was an early one and the distance to be travelled far, was a privilege too great to be refused. Several living at a distance began the day about five o ' clock in order to be in the chapel on time. By their actions these boys demonstrated that, for them, the Mass is the greatest action of the day, and that the honor of being able to participate in the Holy Oblation is a privilege worth great sacrifice. Settlement Work With a view to attaining the second part of its two-fold object, the salvation and sanctification of its neighbor, the Junior Sodality, composed of High School members, has given some of its numbers to work among the various settlements in the city. To date the number is small, but as the work is noble and a crying need of the country today, we have every confidence that this is but the beginning of what will be the greatest glory of the Sodality and even of the High School. According to present arrangement, these boys devote one afternoon a week to the care of their younger and less fortunate brethren dwelling in outlying districts of the city. They take the role of a big brother; organize their games, supervise them and train them to be quite proficient in them. From exercise of the body they go to those of the mind and soul, so that before the program for the afternoon is enacted, Christian Doctrine, the pearl of great price, is dropped into their receptive hearts. Thus do these young men carry on the work of Christ, a work most gratifying to all aware of spiritual values and even to those who look only to a healthy, happy community, for it is one of the chief concerns of the President of this country to provide favor- able circumstances under which the youth of this nation may; play and spend its hours of recreation. This small society, or section of the Junior Sodality, is therefore doing a work deserving of the highest praise. THE penetration of the frozen snows of the far north, long an almost impossible field to even the most mtrepid explorer, has only recently been accomplished. But the conquest of that vast ice region by those holy ambassadors of Christ, who seek neither gold nor fame, is a much slower work, handicapped not only by nature, but by the very character of the people whom they seek to bring back to the fold of the Divine Shepherd. The material and spiritual help necessary for the success of these good missioners does not lie wholly within their means. In fact, the finances of this undertaking depends largely upon societies in Catholic schools throughout the country. Neither have the spirtual works been neglected; many prayers and pious works being offered. In all, we feel that the past year has been successful, one in which we may take a justifiable pride. " wn UNDER the able guidance of Major C. L. Wyman, Ret. U.S.A., and under the instruction of Sergeant E. J. Menefee, D.E. M.L., the Loyola High School Unit of the Reserve Officers Train- ing Corps has, in this scholastic year, made a record that will be difficult to surpass in the ensuing years. Instruction has been given by our competent professors and the students have been permitted to put these theoretical ideas to practical use on the drill field. This method is known as the " explanatory-applicatory system. " On Armistice Day, 1926, the Loyola Unit of the R. O. T. C, preceded by the U. C. L. A. Unit, marched into the Los Angeles Coliseum to take part in the appropriate celebrations to be held on that day. After enjoying a few short talks on Patriotism and Duties to our Country, the i6oth Infantry, National Guard, gave an exhibition Regimental Review. Everyone was greatly interested in this event as they had never before had an oppor- tunity to be present on such an occasion. The battalion then marched to the street cars provided for our unit and returned to Loyola. ' mm iTeiPadre R. O. T. C COMPANY " A ' As an inspiration to other members of the R. O. T. C, men- tion ought to be made here of the honor reflected on Loyola by John A. Kelley. While attending the C. M. T. Camp at Del Monte, Kelley, after a competitive written and oral examination was awarded the merit medal for his class and Battalion. Captain Tup- per, the company commander, wrote John ' s parents a letter of congratulation and also sent a copy to the President of Loyola. Colonel Davis of the San Diego Army and Navy Preparatory School notified Kelley that a Scholarship at the well known in- stitution had been awarded him for his excellent work at Del Monte. This work of Kelley ' s certainly shows the type of men Loyola turns out. " The officers and men of the R. O. T. C. here- by thank Major Wyman and Sergeant Manefee for all help and instruction given. " eiPadre i R. O. T. C. COMPANY " B " -I ' lJ Much to the disappointment of all concerned, the day desig- nated for the annual Federal Inspection by Major Wadill, R. O. T. C. Officer Ninth Corps Area, was spoiled by the untimely lamenting of one Jupiter Pluvius, a well known individual in the community. Instead of having the prescribed field inspection, however. Major Wadill expressed a wish of having the officers assembled in the Armory -for inspection. The Rifle team of this school year has, thanks to the instruc- tion of Sergeant Menefee, made a very good name for itself. How- ever, due to rainy weather the Ninth Corps Area Match was not completed, thereby eliminating us from the National Intercol- legiate Match. Loyola suffered defeat at the hands of the Van Nuys High School and the Varsity Team of the University of iJ lPadre R. O. T. C. COMPANY " C Southern California. Our loss was attributed to the fact that we were unused to the ranges of the respective schools and therefore were not able to do our best. Major Wyman, much to the surprise of everyone, announced a short while ago that the five men on the rifle team will receive medals this year as a token of the appreciation of their hard work. The R. O. T. C. Band of Loyola High School is one of the best in the city — every Loyolan should be proud of it. At every inspection and at every ceremony of any kind the Loyola Band has enlivened the Unit to a feeling that they ought to try just a little harder to keep Loyola on top. All praise is due to Professor Wismer, who works untiringly day and night to perfect the Loyola Band. a i Buchtel, Peck ELECTI? Litsc [NG at the beginning of the year as officers, Louis A. ;hi, President; Joseph W. Bardelli, Vice-President; Charles O ' Grady, Secretary, and Francis L. O ' Connor, Treasurer, the class proceeded along optimistic lines. In the junior divisions of major sports a very creditable show- ing was made by these diminutive Loyolans. They exhibited a tenacity of purpose in all activities which elicited praise from the entire school. The Joseph Scott Debating Society claimed many members from this class. Such organizations as this have always received ardent support from these youthful enthusiasts. A really remark- able spirit of cooperation has been shown by this group of students in all their undertakings. Third Row— Fulmcr. T.ntic, Engc. I Top Row — Clougherty, Saenz, Boehme.

This activity, which means so much to the future graduate, cannot be set aside if a true desire for edu-- cation is to be had. In athletic circles this division was well represented, pro- ducing " top men " for football, basketball and baseball; the cham- pionship in the American League. Indoor contest rests with the Sophomore class of the High School. May this class continue in the spirit of enthusiasm that has actuated them during the past school year, and, by their conduct and intellectual enterprise, bring praise and recognition to Loyola. , M HIGH SCHOOL FRESHMAN CLASS DIVISION " A " ,t J , Horden, Higgins, G M piLgel Morse, O Rourke.

In basketball, Allan Bruttig was the star forward and high point man on the ninty-pound team. Jack Buchtel and John Lenehan also worked hard on the team, both being well up in pomts scored. ■ i r u In baseball Nick Vusich was the outstandmg pitcher tor the Midgets ' team, and Eddie Hayes made a great first baseman and a good man at the bat. Not only in sports was the class repre- sented, but also in debating. Five men were members of the Joseph Scott Debating Society, with Allan Bruttig topping the list, and Nicholas Vusich, John Lenehan. lOOL SPIRIT plus " seems to have been the slogan of this di- vision of the Freshman Class as in every branch of activity it has been among the first to flash under the wire. New to the school and its traditions, the class has stepped in and taken up the work of the year with a zest that should set a high standard for future students at Loyola. A picnic held at Long Beach in the latter part of the year resulted in an hundred per cent attendance and was honored by the presence of no small number of the faculty. Athletic activities were not slighted, and, though we came second in the indoor league, we gave the champions a good run for their money. The class is proud of the spirit it showed in at- tendance at all football games as well as other college affairs and hopes that it has done its share in the making of a bigger and- better Loyola. Paul C. Walsh, Capd FR EMONT VS. LOYOLA As a premier engagement, Captain Paul Walsh led the Loyola High School team against Fremont on the latter ' s field. The game proved to be a battle royal, both teams playing a stellar game of football. Taking advantage of a sudden break, Snell, Fremont ' s plucky quarterback, scored the only touchdown of the game. In the final period Loyola threatened the opponents several times. Thatcher made a brilliant fifty-yard run, putting the ball on Fremont ' s ten-yard line, but the Cubs failed to put it over. Cahill and Eddo made large gains through the holes made in Fremont ' s line by Loyola ' s forewards. The game ended with a score of 6-0, the Cubs deep in the territory of the Fremont team. BELMONT VS. LOYOLA The next struggle of the season was with Belmont High School players, champions of the Junior City League. Fate seemed to be against Loyola, for although they played a good game, the breaks always favored Belmont. At the end of the half, the Cubs led the visitors y-6, out- playing them in every department of the game. But when the .;.. i leiPadreJl longed, though fruitless exchange of punts, Brubaker, early in the second quarter, reached the Southerner ' s sixteen-yard line on a pass from Cahill. The latter rallied three points for the Lions on a beautiful place-kick. In the fourth period the Lionettes pressed their way to a touchdown from the Cadet ' s forty-yard line. Bernard and Thatcher were instrumental in putting over the score and the work of Theriot, end, was excellent. The Academy team, in a terrific drive, scored its only touch- down in this quarter. It was a magnificent effort, and the game ended in a blaze of glory. Loyola, 9; San Diego, 6. ROOSEVELT VS. LOYOLA THE Rough Rider-Lion Cub fracas was, with the exception of the last quarter, a slow plodding affair, being chiefly a pnnt- ing duel which gave neither side any decided advantage. In the final period Roosevelt, by a series of heavy line plunges and a long pass, put the ball within scoring distance and they soon pushed it over for the only tally of the game. The Cubs came back with some aggressive playing and had the ball deep in the Rough Riders ' territory when the game ended. The offensive work of Tom Roberts and Bastonchury was the feature of the game. i 61 Padre THE next clash was with Oneonta and the Light team sent the Pasadena boys home with the small part of a 26-7 score. Hannon, Loyola Half, was the star of the game. His numerous line plunges were very effective and it was his eighty-five-yard run that gave the fans the thrill of the day. The line did well. On November, the young Lions tackled the Pico Heights Panthers and trampled them by the one-sided score of 65-0. The Lightweights met their most feared opponents in the Los Angeles team, class " B " and held them to a G-( tie. The game was featured by O ' Donnell ' s ninety-nine-yard run to a touch- down on the opening kick-off. On November ' 3, the Lightweights met Poly in a return game and triumphed over their rivals by a score of 20-7. They played a better game than the first encounter with the Mechanics, and, incidently, gathered a larger score. The young Lions next took on Scout Troop 99 and defeated them to the tune of 14-0. The teams did not get warmed up until the second half and then the " Lighties " showed their force, out playing their opponents throughout the entire second half. AFTER buckling down to strenuous practice, the Lightweights began their schedule by an encounter with Virgil. The little Lion Cubs put up a great fight and would have held their opponents to a draw had not the latter succeeded in putting over a field goal which divided the game in their favor. Virgil, 3; Loyola, o. Spurred by the loss of the first game, the Lightweights went out for blood in the second engagement of the season, and they got it. They met Polytechnic ' s scrappy eleven and tamed them at the final whistle to a score of 14-0. The little Cubs, through splendid cooperation, broke through the Mechanic ' s forward wall and made their way about the Ends without much difficulty. Frankhn was the next foe to offer battle t othe young Lions. Franklin, a little too confident over previous victories, met a for- midable opponent, and, despite their efforts, the " Kite-Fliers " were unable to put over a score. Unfortunately the Lightweights were unable to go over the line and at the final gun the score was 0-0. HP THE heavy, fast and experienced team of Manual Arts High School was the first opponent to conquer the youngest Lions. Although the home team fought and did their best the score was 33-0. THE Whelps opened a hard season against a dangerous team, when on October 2, they defeated the " loo ' s " of Losff An- geles High. The score was 14-6 in favor of the Loyola. They played their first game at home against the Mt. Vernon team, easily gaining the heavy end of the score, 28-0. In a return game a week later the " Washington Homers " came back determined to win, but the Whelps were more de- termined and the game ended 10-7 in favor of Loyola. It was a hard fight for three quarters, but a field goal in the last episode game the locals their third straight win. A game at Fremont turned out well for the young team of Loyola for the victory over the " Generals " was 9-7. A field goal by C. Greenough early in the game and a sensational run by Bill Schmidt gave the Whelps their nine points. BELMONT VS. LOYOLA COACH Jim Tunney ' s High School Varsity officially opened the season with an impressive victory over the fast Belmont squad. The stellar floor-work of Andy Nealis and the steady plodding defensive play of Guard Eddo went far to insure the local triumph. The final score, 17-13, is clearly indicative of the thrilling quality of the game. FRANKLIN VS. LOYOLA The " Purple and Gold " , bearing the insignia of the High School, was again hfted when the Loyola Cagers completely smothered the Franklin men. The visitors were outclassed and out-tossed by our quintet, which turned in the score of 36-0. Andy was high point man with a total of twenty digits to his credit. CATHEDRAL HIGH VS. LOYOLA Coach " Gus " Mclssac ' s squad from Cathe- dral High School were the next victims of the fast-stepping quintet bearing the " L. H. S. " The brilliant and shifty work of Roy Von der Ahe contributed largely to the victory. Loyola, 12; Cathedral High, 2. PACIFIC VS. LOYOLA Once more the " tenacious Cubs " brought home the spoils. The luckless victims, in the person of the Pacific quintet, were trimmed to the tune of 24-0. VENTURA VS. LOYOLA The heavy players from far-away Ventura next encountered the young Lions, but the speed and strategy of the local cagers were too much for the pugnacious visitors who, in the course of the contest, were defeated 20-12. 61 Padre SAN DIEGO ARMY AND NAVY Loyola travelled to San Diego and played the Army and Navy Academy, defeating them, 3-2. The defeat handed Loyola by Belvedere Athletic Club was evened when the local aggrega- tion won over the Army and Navy. The mighty Swedo was fol- lowed by Cady. The strong Cathedral High team was again trimmed by the Lion Cubs, 16-8. Also the " Foothill Five " from Burbank were next defeated, 6-2. BURBANK NIGHT SCHOOL VS. LOYOLA Ending the most successful season in any branch of Lo) ' ola High School Athletics, Coach Tunney ' s squad brought back an- other victory. Loyola, 22; Burbank High School, 17.

Mercury Club. Once more the Cubs went down to defeat before the strong Mercury Club, 13-8. The battle was close, the " Lighties " leading at the half, until the Club broke loose in the final period, taking and holding the lead. Immaculate Heart A. C. The young Lions chalked up their third victory by defeating Immaculate Heart A. C. lo- The Cubs displayed their best brand of " Cassaba tossing " so far in the season. Huesman, a forward, was high point man with four digits. Vic Roberts, guard, did excellent defense work and is greatly responsible for the victory. Pacific Military Academy. The Military boys were the ' next to fall before the fighting Cubs. The Cubs easily vanquished their rivals 19-1. St. Augustine. The Loyola men next encountered the St. Augustine quintet from San Diego, and sent them home on the short end of 8-7. Milhe was high point man with four digits. The Lightweights made it four victories straight when they again met the Spartan Club. The final score was 10-5. Grover, pivot man, was high point man. Central Junior High School. On the Central High School court the Cubs met defeat. Central, 33; Loyola, 10. The Lightweights again won from Virgil, 6-5; they bowed in defeat to Central High, 26-14. The Immaculate Heart A. C. won an 8-7 victory, C. Roberts making four of the seven points. Virgil Alumni. The first game in the win column came when the local quintet sent the Virgil " Cassaba Tossers " home on the short end of an 8-6 score. The playing was exciting through- out and it was not until the minute before the final whistle that Loyola scored her winning basket. Manual Arts. The next encounter, January i , proved fatal when they bowed to the champion team from Manual Arts, 2-0. The Lightweights obtained plenty of shots but couldn ' t seem to find the basket.

The Midgets started this remarkable season by a game with Southwestern Military Academy, whose iio ' s were easily dispatched to the tune of i6 to 4. The last engagement was the only one to mar a most perfect record. Far from apologizing, we, however, offer an explanation of the score, which was a tie. Due to the fact that the Midgets met the Southwestern Military Academ} i o-pounders on a slop- ing, dirt court, they could not show to advantage, even though an extra period was plaved. SCHEDULE 16 Loyola 4 Southwestern Military Academy (iio lbs.) 5 Loyola 5 St. John ' s Military Academy 12 Loyola 6 Christian Brothers 8 Loyola 4 Southwestern Military Academy (130 lbs.) 12 Loyola 10 Boy Scout Troop 12 Loyola 7 Christian Brothers o Loyola o Southwestern Mihtary Academy (no lbs.) 90-P0UND BASKETBALL TEAM THE Lion Whelps opened their season against the strong Holly- wood five. The movie boys proved to be a little too tall for the Loyolans, who seemed unable to hit the basket. After four quarters of good basketball, the Whelps found themselves at the short end of the score. Downing, next in order, the Y. M. C. A. boys, Urban Mili- tary Academy, the Y. M. C. A. in a return game, and St. Thomas Irish, in masterly fashion, the team bid fair to go through an almost undefeated season. Lieligibility, however, took out the entire first string. Two games were dropped to the strong Urban varsity. The young Lions fought hard and only luck gave the cadets victory. In the last game of the season the heavy Southwestern team defeated the Loyolans in the fastest and most hard-fought of the year. HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL TEAM iraPadrc Spi . . Pcschkc, Moor« PLAYING one of the heaviest schedules in the history of the High School, the Loyola squad has gained considerable prestige in Los Angeles High School circles. Beginning in the early part of March, the team was out every night for hard work. With but a week ' s practice, the Preps met the strong Pioneer nine from Fremont, and broke into the win column by the score of 2 to I. On March 8 the local ball-tossers walloped the heavy Roose- velt nine to the tune of 14 to 3. Heavy slugging was in vogue during this game, Lefty Powers getting several circuit clouts. St. Patrick ' s Day marked the initial defeat of the Loyola team. The victors in this game were the Foothillers from Holly- wood High. When the game ended the score was Hollywood 4, Loyola 2. The Toilers from Manual Arts next claimed the locals in a free-for-all slugfest. The sacks were kept working overtime by the heavy clouts to the outfield. The score was 11 to 8. The highly-touted Polytechnic nir aspirants in a 4 to o fray. next shut out the local After six days of practice the Preps felt sufficiently recovered from the rampage of stinging defeats handed out by Hollywood, Manual and Poly to distinctly outplay the Kiteflyers from Frank- lin, 7 to 4. Santa Monica next trounced the cocky Lions in a 6 to 4 struggle. The fatal fourth inning beat Loyola. The Santa Monica squad got three hits and four runs. Loyola journeyed to Franklin a few days later and fell luck- less victims to Lefty Quinn ' s slants. The final score was 8 to 4. The traveling Preps next encountered the fast Lincoln nine at the Railsplitters ' lair and were trounced 11 to 2. The Lincoln athletes have a peculiar avidity for the brand of baseball Maurry Nealis delivers, and the effect of this particular avidity is clearly illustrated by the final score, 11 to 2. As a change of menu the Loyola nine fed eagerly upon the " Military Meats " from Oneonta. The final score was 11 to 6, in favor of Loyola. To Von der Ahe goes the credit of pitching the only over- time game of the season. After two extra sessions the exhausted athletes called quits. The result standing: Fremont, 3; Loyola, 3. Lincoln again mauled the Loyola nine to the tune of 9 to 5. I The sting of all past defeats was wiped out by the sensational victory over Whittier ' s nine. Eddie Amistoy, star Loyola twirler pitched the no-hit-no-run game in Southern California prep circles and received due recognition in the local sport sheets. Nice work Eddie. E S A few days later the Loyola aggregation traveled to far- away San Diego and, after a weird exhibition of the national pastime, attached the short end of a 7 to 6 score. The game was featured by the fine work of relief pitcher Nealis and the catch- ing and cloturing of Moore. Succeeding his luckless teammate, who, by the way, was stiff and sore from the long and dusty ride, Andy Nealis pitched shut-out baseball, while Moore pounded out a homer and two singles out of three trips to the plate. Returning from the naval base the local squad trimmed the strong Toiler squad in a 2 to o tussle. The game was featured by the fine pitching of Dempsey and the excellent support of the rest of the team. Still discomfited from their defeat at the hands of the San Diego nine, the Loyolans eased their conscience by trimming the Diegans, 7 to i. The entire team played flawless ball behind Nealis ' fine pitching. After another game with Oneonta, when Loyola brought home the long end of a 10 to o score, the Preps closed a most successful season with another tilt with Poly. Again they fell before the Poly onslaught, this time 12 to 9. Without a morsel of exaggertation this sport has made greater strides in a single year than any other Loyola High School major sport. Thanks are due to Coach Feely and Manager Grove for their unselfish work in behalf of this branch of Loyola ' s athletics. J THE opening of the baseball season found the Midgets hard at practice under the direction of Mr. Fitzgerald, S. J. After a week of training they started their schedule by playing Mt. Vernon. The game was lost, 3-2. In the second game they were defeated by Oneonta. However the next game with Mt. Vernon was a victory, The game with the Urben Military Academy was another 10-5. Losing to Oneonta, they easily defeated Fremont, 8-4. The Midgets played Mt. Vernon for the third time in the seventh game of the season and triumphed over them, 5-3. They won from Berendo, but lost to the same team a few days later. The last game of the season was with St. John ' s Military Academy, the greatest triumph of the season, 13-5. ACTIVITIES JOLLY TIME AROUND THE ICE-CREAM TABLES THIS Startling expose of the illicit abominicities practiced by our local fraternities was secured by our staff photographer, who, with contemptible disregard to both life and limb, disguised himself as a bottle of witch hazel, and thus was able to penetrate the fastness of a certain fraternity ' s formal. After lurking beneath a table for three hours, at the stroke of twelve, our hero leaped forth and secured this colossal depicta- tion of night life at local country clubs, women ' s clubs, beach clubs and other horrible places. made tlie hrsc down and skidded u cr. Hoeffer slipped the extra point. Haddock and Mannion paddled around mud field digging for the ball after the touchdown. Lions soaked a 15 -yard penalty. Tunney ' s pass to Mannion was waterlogged and O ' Brien ' s punt was all wet, too. On the first splash, the Fog-Easters muddled near the goal, but the play was rained out and were flooded for 10 yards. Most of the linesmen are using a cross between a breast and side stroke while men in the backfield are using the Australian crawl and diving position. Mannion poked his finger at some one and threw it out of joint. Hoeffer put down his umbrella and slushed down the field. St. Ignatius makes a stormy touchdown. Final Pour: Lions, 6; Gray Fog, 6.
