OD bless our boys whom we enshrine
As Freedom's own in each service star,
And guard them as, in battle line Or trench or camp, anear or far,
They face the foe with youthful glee And blench not ‘mid Death's revelry.
Bless Thou. O Lord, our champions of Right. Strengthen their arms to win their gallant fight. Save them, or if the sacrifice must be,
Take them, O loving Father, home to Thee!
Columbia! These are our hope and pride!
And every star's a hero’s sign.
No banner in the lines allied Will have defenders like to thine,
W ho erst with boyhoods' ardor true Cherished our own, dear Red and Blue.
(Refrain, Bless Thou, etc.)
Vincent IV. Hallinan.REV. JOSEPH M. GLEASON. A. M. 88.
Who Delivered the Sermon on the Occasion of the Blessing of Our Service FlagHbsanut ODur mrirr IFlay
On the evening of May 12, the crosses that top the fog-swept steeples of St. Ignatius' church were illuminated in
all their brilliancy and shone forth in lofty, lucent majesty, significant to San Franciscans of a most unusual ceremony in the temple below. That ceremony was the blessing of the Service Flag of St. Ignatius I niver-sity.
Long before the appointed hour, the seats of the spacious church were filled and people knelt reverently in the aisles. Magnificent and impressive, indeed, was the sight which they beheld, the green carpeting of the broad sanctuary, the im-william t sweigertaltar, tastetull decorated
with red and white carnations and blue flag lilies, the vast dome above, brightly lighted and draped on either side with two large American flags.
At half past eight a procession emerged from the sacristy, passed before the altar rail and mounted the steps to places in the sanctuary. First, in order came forty acolytes, garbed in red cassocks and delicate lace surplices: then followed a line of priests in cassock and surplice: lastly in full uniform marched two chaplains, the Reverend Father Moisant. chaplain at Camp Fremont, and Reverend Father McQuaide, chaplain at the Presidio, who was attended by two former Ignatians, Lieutenants Vincent K. Ilutler and Eugene Conway, also in uniform.
W hen all had assembled in the sanctuary a specially augmented choir sang the beautiful hymn, “C»od T»less ( ur Flag.” the production of a former St. Ignatius pupil.HLIiSS XG OUR SERl'ICIi FLAG
the Rev. Joseph Riordan, S. J. As the last note died away the Military Hand of the 62nd Artillery Regiment, occupying the spacious upper gallery, broke forth into the martial tones of the “Stars and Stripes Forever" march. If ever brazen throated instruments have lent the charm of inspiring music to a scene, and if ever a military band has with rhythmic harmony made hearts beat quickly, it was on this occasion when the majestic temple vibrated with that full sonorous melody. Truly it was the grandest commingling of the military and the religious that the Catholics in San Francisco have ever witnessed.
Now. down the middle aisle between the stately colonnades on either side and past an eager and deeply impressed congregation, eight khaki-clad soldiers, proud to perform such an office for their Alma Mater, carried the magnificent banner to the altar and draped it before the very door of the tabernacle.
There it lay for all to behold, with red border, white field and blue stars, a significant flag, bearing in its ample folds an eloquent tribute to the noble virility, the steadfast devotion and the lively patriotism of the sons of St. Ignatius University.
There were 378 stars in all, three of which were set in gold, telling the simple story of three Ignatians, who have already offered “the last full measure of devotion." The honored dead are Charles I . McVey, a victim on the torpedoed Tuscania: W illiam Lasater and George V. Ross, both of whom died of disease, the latter across the seas in France, the former here in his own native city. The Ignatian of highest military rank, represented on the flag, is I»rigadier-Gencral Charles A. McKinstry. A. I». 84. at the present time commanding a division of engineers in France.
After the choir had intoned the “Veni Creator," the Rev. Joseph Gleason, A. I ». 87, pastor of St. Thomas'18
THE IGN ATI AN
church, Palo Alto, and National Chaplain of the Spanish-American War Veterans, ascended the pulpit. His address was phrased in the words of a “real American" and delivered with a spirited eloquence and a fervid enthusiasm which reached the hearts of his hearers, lie spoke of the distinguishing characteristic of a Catholic's patriotism, his clear concept of a dual duty to God and to country. “That is why," spoke Fr. Gleason, "the Service Flag of St. Ignatius University lies here this evening, here where it should lie, at the foot of the altar of God."
A musical number followed the sermon and then the ceremony of blessing the Hag was begun. Father Me Quaide with his two aides approached the altar and. standing beside the flag, sprinkled holy water upon the outspread banner and invoked with most beautiful prayers the blessing and the protection of Almighty God upon the heroes represented on its starry field. Then, as tears filled the eyes of many onlookers, as just pride kindled in the eyes of students, alumni and faculty members, and as the majestic tones of the “Star Spangled Banner" brought all to attention, the flag was slowly raised to a place above the altar.
A song, written specially for the occasion by Vincent W. Hallinan, 19, and set to music by Professor Albert Schuh, was now sung by the choir.

Saturday Night, 6:15 o’clock.
Dearest Dad and Mother:
I've been swept off my feet so completely by my first impression of New York that, although I’ve been here only
four or five hours, I decided that I just bad to let you know all about it.
We left the station at 1:30 o’clock, and after a mile’s walk through the snow, which was very exciting in itself, we reached the railroad station; after a ten-minute ride on the train we changed cars, and to my surprise we were landed on a station fifty feet above ground; then followed mv first ride on elevated railroads. To the other California boys it was just as much a surprise and novelty as it was for me. I used to think that it was a lot of “bunk” when I heard that trains ran alongside of four and five story buildings. Our ride took us along the famous “Harlem” and its countless number of tenement houses; they were the same as I have often seen in moving pictures; row after row of houses identical in architecture, with millions of little kids lined up on every street, coasting down the hills with their snow-sleighs. We rode as far as Forty-second street and then descended to “terra finna" again. 'File first sight to greet our eyes was the Grand Central Station, and in we went to investigate. I guess, Mother, that you remember it very well, for to my way of thinking once you have seen it you will never forget it.
After we had spent a half-hour looking around we decided to keep going till we hit old Broadway. By this time

I had received my first glimpse of the “skyscrapers and believe me, they sure are skyscrapers. I guess that I represented the typical “hayseed” as I stood with mouth open gaving upward, but I just could not help myself, for the temptation was too strong. We stopped in at the Navy C lub on Fifth Avenue to obtain some information. It is surely a treat; there are writing-rooms, pool tables, canteen, library, etc., all for our comfort. After giving that the “once over” we proceeded on our journey and our next stop was at that famous corner. Times Square, Forty-second and Broadway. Can you imagine poor little me, who has spent four month-in Los Angeles, where the people never move faster than a crawl, standing at that famous corner? But there were eight others like myself, and we put our heads together and decided to seek a hotel before we all fell over in a faint from the excitement. A couple of us wanted to stay at the Knickerbocker. but the others decided that it was too far away from pay day. so we walked down a block to the Continental and obtained our rooms at $1.50 a piece, which is more than reasonable. “Fat” Kelly, Yin. Meherin, Davidson and myself have a suite of rooms that sure are wonders. After a breathing spell we ventured out again and decided to do Broadway. I guess, Mother, that you remember these parts as well as f do.
We have so many things planned for tomorrow that it will take 11s a month of Sundays to realize them all. Central Park, Fifth Avenue and Wall Street most likely will be honored with our presence, but still you never can tell what sailors will do. We are free till 8 o’clock Monday morning, so I suppose that we will manage to see considerable of the city.
Dad! It sure is some treat for me. and I only wish that you were along to share it with me. You can bet that I’ll persuade you to take the trip some time, seeing that Mother and I are now rated on the same plane as National Travelers. Mother won't be able to say: “Now, when I was East21

such and such was such.” It will have to be: “Was so and so such when you were East, Charlie?” Ha! ha! The more I stop to reflect that I am in Xew York, the less I can realize it. W’hv, even as I write this letter I look out the window and see thousands of electric signs that form the Great W hite W ay. and 1 always thought such things existed for me in another world. Wrc bought last Sunday’s San Francisco Chronicle today, and I’m going to glance over it now before we go out, and see if the home town is still O. K. I guess dear old S. F. would just about make one street in Xew York. Xow don’t get mad. dad: I was only fooling.
All my love to you both, and I will write again tomorrow.
Xew York, February 24. l‘M8.
Dearest Dad and Mother:
This is a continuation of my first experiences in the Big City. As I closed my letter to you last night. I was just preparing to take in “Oh, Hoy!" at the Casino Theatre. It was a typical Broadway show, and we enjoyed every minute of it. After the show we met Yin Meherin and a couple of others in our party who had seen Maxime Elliot and Xat (ioodwin, and together we all promenaded along the Great White Wav and saw Xew York at its merriest. There seemed to be millions of people on the streets; we would walk along a few feet and then would he caught in a jam and forced to stand still. It reminded me of a carnival. We turned into bed at the hotel about 2 o’clock, and arose bright and early this morning.
At 11 o’clock we split into parties and all started out in opposite directions to see as much as possible. Art Davidson and I formed our combination, and the first thing we did was to take a Fifth Avenue bus. The bus ran along fashionable Fifth Avenue, passed Central Park, along the bank of the Hudson and terminated around One Hundred and Sixty-eighth Street. I don’t think that we could have chosen22
THE IGN ATI AN
a more interesting and beautiful ride. The conductor took a special interest in us, as did likewise several of the passengers. They pointed out to us all the famous millionaires’ mansions, the particular buildings of interest in Central Park, and also prominent buildings that could be seen in the distance, such as Columbia College, St. John’s Cathedral, etc. We returned on the same bus, and sat back to enjoy Riverside Drive to our heart’s content. The trip lasted about two hours, and we arrived back at the hotel at half-past three, where I dispatched a few postals to you.
After a few minutes’ breathing spell we set out again. This time it was to the business district and Brooklyn Bridge. Mother, you can explain to Dad better than I can how that part of New York is located. We took the subway at Forty-first Street and Broadway, and in a few minutes we were landed at the other end of town. By the way, it was my first ride on a subway train, and I appreciated the novelty of it. The first thing we did was to walk out to the middle of Brooklyn Bridge; it was a wonderful sight: but there was something still better in store for us. After lingering on the bridge for a while, we walked along those streets where millions are made and lost in a few minutes. You'll have a very fortunate son. Mother, if my head does not fall off tonight after the way 1 twisted my neck gazing up at the real skyscrapers. After we had feasted our eyes on these sights for half an hour or so, we caught the subway back and returned to the hotel.
I just could not wait until tomorrow to tell you all I saw, so I had to take advantage of these few minutes before we eat supper to write you. Don't you think that we have been busy boys since we landed in this city? I don’t exactly know what the program will be tonight. I think that all the theatres are closed, but the evening is young, and we arc pretty certain to keep going.
New York is the easiest town in the world to find your way about; of course, when it comes to seeking informationROVINGS OF A "JACKIE"
from people, we are anything’ but bashful. We must have asked about a million questions and every one was answered. The people here are willing to go a mile out of their way to help you along. We all admit that San Francisco and New York are identical in every respect. The people of both cities seem to possess the same sort of energy; the dress, manners, customs and life are the same. To tell the honest truth, I feel more at home in New York than I did in Los Angeles. In all, folks, it has surely been a glorious weekend for me. I have seen New York in a way in which I would never have been able to see it again, and I have enjoyed it much more than I ever could have under any other circumstances. It has all been a dream that 1 never before thought could be realized.
Before it slips my mind, did I ever tell you how we have our brothers from the East “kidded’’ about the West? We tell stories about how the cowboys and Indians used to ride in for miles around to hear our 300-piece band at San Pedro; tell them of the flourishing farms around Powell and Market Streets, and such things as that. It s a picnic. The majority of them have their ideas of the West from moving pictures, and they believe that before the war we all used to pack guns around on our hips. Well, folks, I think that I have overwritten myself, for. as Mother used to say when she got tired writing, “I have a cramp in mv thumb.” I hope that everything is all right with you both, and that by now you have ceased worrying over my trip. All my love to you both. I will write again tomorrow.
Naval Training Station, Pelham Bay Park. New York, March 3, 1918.
My Dear Friend:
At this reading you are undoubtedly aware of the details concerning my rather hasty leavetaking from the land of24
sunshine, fruit and flowers: nor shall I burden you with a lengthy description of my transcontinental trip, tilled though it was with wonders that my fertile imagination never conjured as existing. We traveled via the Santa he. passing through Arizona, Xew Mexico, Colorado. Kansas. Missouri, Pennsylvania, and finally along the Hudson River to the Kmpire State. Your own experience as an American traveler will enable you to recall the glories of each of these places far better than I can portray them. In my own case, however. I doubt if I shall ever again have the good fortune to enjoy as much the trip over the American continent, for we traveled 450 strong, and every habitation along the way manifested its patriotism and showed the proper spirit by tendering us the municipal keys and allowing us the full possession and use. tree of cost, of street cars, fire engines and sundry municipal instrumentalities. As you know, I bear you no ill will whatever, but I did wish that you were one of us on the night we arrived in Xew York. One of the natives informed us that the temperature was 10 degrees above zero. At the time I was too cold to argue with him. but I insist to this day that it must have been 133degrees below zero. Since the day of our arrival the brand of weather has been such that it might fairly be compared with that of our own California, and we have received information from sources that are fairly reliable that the winter season is now spent, for which we are all quite thankful.
There are about six thousand men quartered here, living in barracks, about sixty men to each barrack, and every regiment having its own mess hall. With my wonted humility I hasten to apprise you of the statements that we have heard on all sides that our California unit forms the finest body of men that has entered the camp up to this time. The first day we were here men holding college degrees were taken from the unit and placed in another regiment, and are now taking a special course of instruction. In all about one hundred men were chosen, and am diligently ap-ROr XCS OF A "JACKIE”

My initial trip to New York City was an immense success. 1 stood on Brooklyn Bridge; perched myself on the top of the Wool worth Building: patronized the buses on Kifth Avenue and Riverside Drive: paid my respects to the subways and the elevated, casting longing glances in the direction of the Polo grounds, and compared Central Park with our own (iolden (late (I assure you to the advantage of the latter). It is now ():15, Sunday morning, and at 10 o'clock a crowd of us are going to Mass, which will be celebrated on the grounds. The Knights of Columbus are very active here and have a building in the course of construction. Their various chapters in Xew York City have issued standing invitations to us to accept their hospitality.
Now having heard Mass. I shall continue. There must have been about three hundred fellows present at the celebration of Mass, and it was all very impressive. The priest who celebrated the Mass is permanently stationed at camp and is surely a splendid selection for the position he holds. He gave us a very appropriate talk and announced that the K. of C. will have another building in the course of construction in a week or two. I just met Yin Meherin at Mass: he is looking more like an old salt than ever before. You will sure have some hard nuts to crack if we ever have the pleasure of meeting again within the four walls of a classroom. I will put a round turn and a couple of half hitches about you and make you rig in your booms. 1 fully realize that this terminology is a bit over your head, but my vocabulary contains quite an admixture of salt water stuff these days, so don't be offended. 1 have not heard any word from Lee Jacobson or Yin Brown since f left California. T forgot to mention that 1 experienced my first snowstorm last week. Being my first. I was naturally quite childish about it and persisted in running about in the snow, making the most of it.

ers? I anxiously await word, for I am a long, long way from Hayes and Shrader streets. I must complete my letter. for the bugle has just announced mess, and you know from past experience the eagerness with which I have always responded to that call. W hat about the fortunes of the Sodality baseball team? suppose the boys arc still bending them over and lining them out on Sunday mornings. 1 sure wish that I was there to help you out by an occasional crashing drive to the bleachers as of yore. ( I la, ha, he, he.)
Give my kind regards and best wishes to all of our mutual friends, and as for yourself, be sure to stay under cover when the big wind blows.
S. S. Wierlingen, X. V. Harbor. March 21, 1918.
Thursday X ight, 8:15.
Mv Dearest Dad and Mother:
Did you observe the title of this letter? It is all very true, and here I am.
This morning at 9 o’clock our crew was mustered, along with forty-five others, and were sent aboard the different boats that were tied up to Ellis Island, to be sent to our new homes. Every crew had a junior and a senior officer attached to it, and it looked like a big naval review. The occasion of it all was the seizure of the Dutch boats, the details of which, I suppose, you are familiar with by this time.
There were several other crews aboard our boat, which necessitated cpiite a lengthy trip around Xew York harbor. Consequently, 1 was given an opportunity to see Xew York harbor from the beginning to end. Mother, never thought there were so many boats in the world, as 1 saw anchored about here; boats from every country, of every size and description; and you ought to see the way some of the boats are “camouflaged.” From a mile away you would be unableROVINGS or A “JACKIE”
to tell whether they were ships or clouds; some are painted to represent the sun, others painted with big polka dots, etc.
We drew up alongside our boat about 1 o’clock and formally took possession of it. We arranged ourselves in our (piarters, ate lunch, fooled around the boat, had dinner and here I am writing.
There are so many things I have to write of that I just don’t know where to begin.
hirst of all, we are lying on the Brooklyn side of the Hast River, directly opposite the Singer Building, tied up to the Long Island City docks. The boat itself is a first-class merchant vessel, about 300 feet long, completely steel-armored. Jt is about half filled with cargo (sugar from Puerto Rico), and all day long they have been unloading it.
It is not an ocean-to-ocean vessel, but built only for coastwise commerce, and up to the seizure by the United States was used only between the islands and here. Therefore, our hopes of taking a trip to the other side are gone, and we will have to be content with coastwise trips, if we remain aboard her. She is slow, developing only eight knots per hour (about eight miles). It is needless for me to say that the Dutch crew aboard are wild.
The official surrender took place at 5:20 this evening, and it was so impressive that it bears mentioning. The Dutch crew lined up on one side of the deck and the American crew at the other. Two of our men were detailed to lower the Hag, and as it was being hoisted down we stood at attention and held the salute, while the Dutch crew uncovered. Folks, it was pitiful to see the expressions on the faces of the Dutch crew; half of them filled up with tears. I doubt if anything could have affected or touched their hearts more than that simple act. When the flag was lowered, it was folded and handed to our commander, who in turn handed it to the Dutch captain. The scene would have done justice to any movie. The American officer came to attention, saluted and passed the flag to the Dutch captain. lie uncovered andTHE 1GNATIAX
extended his hand to the other, and both shook hands warmly. The old Dutch captain was on the verge of breaking down. You can’t appreciate what the entire affair meant, and no description of mine could aid you. Tomorrow morning at 8 o’clock the Stars and Stripes are raised and it becomes an American vessel; the crews of not only this, but all other Dutch ships seized, are put off and deported back to Holland.
Ye are now acting as armed guard and are patrolling all parts of her, for fear that they may attempt to tamper with her. I have just come in off watch in the engine-room and am going to turn in. Tomorrow we move over to the New York side and dock. All told, there are 14 of us in the crew—the six of us whom I mentioned before and one other: also seven firemen. Every Dutch vessel is armed with the same sort of crew along with two officers.
The living-quarters are fine and we are all patting ourselves on the shoulder for drawing such a class A boat. Tomorrow we take on I’nited States cooks, and you can rest assured that we will continue to be fed in regular navy style. Everything is great, and the spirits of all of us are high. hat the next move will be none of us knows, but it is almost certain that we will be around here for some time to come, and whatever trip we may make will not be far from home shores. As said before, we are all a trifle disappointed, but I suppose that it is all for the best, so none of us complains. That just about constitutes a record of today’s events. It has been a busy day and one that I'll always remember.
New York’s waterways are just as crowded and busy as its streets. I’oats by the thousands are steaming continually to and fro: it is like a city on the water. The city lying across the way looks beautiful, all illuminated. Thomas Edison’s plant is almost directly opposite us. I guess they are working night and day there, for the works are going full blast now.»

Ellis Island, March 31, 1918.
Easter Sunday Morning; 11 o’clock A. M. My Dearest Dad and Mother:
I'm so happy this Easter morning that 1 don’t think that I will be able to propel my pen quickly enough to tell you all my thoughts. To begin with the beginning: Last night after I had written you from the Y. M. C. A., I started out for Saint Patrick's Cathedral. It was only a few blocks away and I had no difficulty finding it.
I stepped in, expecting to find the ordinary church decorations, but I was literally swept off my feet at the grandeur and splendor that were unveiled to my eyes. If there is anything more beautiful in the whole world, it will take a great deal of argumentation on some one’s part to convince me. Mere you inside, Mother? I will not undertake even a feeble description of the interior, because I firmly believe that no human being has descriptive powers sufficient to give one even the slightest pen picture of it. There are side altars and alcoves every few feet, the most wonderful creations that the hand of man can accomplish. Priceless paintings and statues seem to adorn every crevice. These altars extend along the side and behind the main altar, so that I was enabled to encircle the entire church. The main altar is one mass of glory and was fully adorned with flowers banked on every side, as the scene was set for EasterROVINGS OP A “JACKIE”
Sunday. The pulpit is one mass of beautifully carved Italian marble, lily white. The plush pews surrounding the huge marble pillars that seem to extend to the skies, the magnificently stained glass windows, the massive organ set up in the choir, all came under my observation. In seating capacity the Cathedral compares with St. Ignatius Church. Personally I would not vouch which would accommodate the most people.
The primary nature of my visit was Confession, and as I looked at the throngs of people waiting in line to seek the confessional, I was beginning to doubt if I should have the honor of making my Paster confession there. Of a sudden an idea came to me. I saw two gentlemen conversing in low tones in the rear of the church. I went up to them, stated my case, explaining that my time was so limited that a long delay might mean no confession at all for me. They almost fell over one another in their efforts. One sought a gentleman standing a few feet away, whom I presume was the watchman, for when my case was explained he waited not for one more word but made me follow him. 1 saw him directing me to a confessional where if there was one there were a hundred men and women waiting in line. I wanted to argue with him for I felt a little peculiar, but he would have none of it and he planted me at the head of the procession. Tie explained to the first few that I was leaving the city in a few hours, and you’d think I was a king the way the people smiled at me and bowed away. One lady was just on the point of walking into the confessional, but when she heard him speak she wheeled around and insisted that I go in ahead of her. I was so touched that I could not even mumble a thanks. I made my confession and the priest that heard it was surely a wonder. After I had finished and left the church, on my way back home, I don’t think that I have ever felt happier in my life and every day of my life32
THE IGX. IT I AN
I will recall the whole incident, it was all so wonderful. I had a bite to eat and was in bed by 10 o clock. I was awake at six o’clock, had my breakfast at the and was down to get the boat at the Uattery at 7:3° for the island.
We had no sooner set foot on the island when 1 heard “Church Call” being sounded on the bugle. 1 hurried upstairs to the Knights of Columbus hall and found myself just in time for Mass. There were about three hundred boys in blue assembled and quite a number of women nurses from the army hospital. Mother, it was beautiful and the priest gave a talk that touched our hearts. lie said that it was the most beautiful ceremony that he ever officiated at and further that he preferred to be making his Raster offering here than in any of the world's finest cathedrals. At the conclusion of the Mass all sang “Come Holy Ghost”, and I might add that the eyes of the women were bedimmed with tears as we filed out and you can be sure that the memory of the event will live forever in all our hearts. I was so happy that I went below and despatched a telegram to you.
Now for vour letters of the 20th and 22nd. That must have been quite a spectacle prepared for John McCormick. I guess that it's only another proof that “San Francisco knows how.” There is no “low down.” Dad. about prospects at Pelham; as I said before we were all disappointed, but in times like these no complaint-should be made. We arc all as happy and look forward to another opportunity.
Mother, dear, you must be having a great time along with the other mothers exchanging stories about “my son.” I suppose Hill Sheehan was a pleased sailor boy when he received orders to come East. There is nothing like it in the world, folks: the more a fellow sees, tin-greater and broader will be his experience when all isROI' XGS OF A “JACKIf:
said and done. Every time 1 think of how fortunate I was to have had four months at San Pedro amon friends all the time and then to have been sent Past with them, 1 feel like jumping up and shouting. I think that I have been as fortunate as any boy in the service; don’t you think so? You are sure some patriotic mother, judging by the pieces you selected. I'll bet you’ll have Dad joining the home guard, now that the patriotic spirit is beginning to manifest itself over you. I even noted the service stamp on your letterheads. Yes. Dad. they give us rates at hotels and theatres: we get rooms at the I.ongrove and the Continental for $1.50 which to others are $2.50. As for theatres, you know they have agencies all over town, so when you wish to go to a show you may get your pick at one of these agencies. As a rule they charge a small premium, but there is one at 42nd and I’roadway which is conducted along the lines of the stock exchange; on a large blackboard the names of the shows playing and the tickets available for the same are placed. Here we received a discount of about 30 per cent.
Speaking of the Yew York 'rimes. I wonder did you receive the one 1 sent you. You are right at that. Dad. my candid and honest opinion is that we have a better library than the one here.
I had to laugh. Mother dear, when you wrote that you were writing just after having done the dishes. Never mind, just wait till your big son comes back. I’ll do all the dishes for you and so quickly that it will make your head swim.
We received our orders just a few minutes ago. to pack up and prepare to leave. Now don’t worry, folks, you may not hear from me for awhile, but everything is O. K. Don’t forget, Mother dear, you promised to take care of yourself, and Dad. dear, you see that she does.
All my love to you both.

IR SMASH HALTS SAX FRANCISCO ROY'S PLAN,” was the headline in one of our evening papers of March 4th. giving the general details of the accident that befell Lieutenant Frank Flynn, Instructor in the British Royal Flying Corps, our own dear “Pep." at Camp Benbrook, Taliaferro Meld, Texas. From that account we thought that we had seen our last of “Pep." “His head had been crushed and he was lying at death’s door in the Fort Worth Aviation School Hospital."
Most of us were satisfied with that account, commiserated poor “Pep." remembered him, perhaps, in our prayers and then waited for more news. Not so thoughtful “ in" Com-pagno; he took “immediate action" by sending a wire offering “Pep" his sympathy, and here is the telegram he received in reply:
“Fort Worth. Texas, March 7. 1918.
“My face busted: otherwise O. K. Regards to all the gang. Pep.”
That was good news, indeed. It showed that no matter how badly the Lieutenant, pronounced Leftenant—Frank is very particular about that pronunciation—had been injured, his spirit remained as indomitable as ever: with that intact we knew that, if he had half a chance, the old fight would pull him through.
Nor were we mistaken. On May 12th. “Pep." in full uniform, cane included, and sporting one of those—well, you know what I mean—on his upper lip, was present at the blessing of our service flag, and many were the eyes that were raised from the prayer-books as the handsome young officer, with somewhat of a Texas cowboy’s roll, marched down the main aisle to a place of honor near the altar-rail. “Pep" is not his old-time self yet, far from it. nor is heTHE IG.VATJAX
wont to talk much about himself, blit in the course of a long conversation I managed to learn a few of his experiences, which 1 hope the many friends of the Lieu—pronounced Left—tenant will enjoy.
l irst. “Pep” thinks that here in the I’nited States, and in California in particular, we feel few of the hardships resulting from war. “In the training camps in Canada the life is pretty hard. I thought and most of us. exercising the soldier’s privilege of criticizing, spoke pretty freely among ourselves on the subject, that conditions at the first R. O. T. C. at the Presidio were at times almost intolerable. Vet we were fed well, had no l . P. duty or scrubbing of floors and such like duties to perform. Why. the student in the first camp”—“Pep." by the way. won his commission as a 2nd Lieutenant at the Presidio’s first camp—“led a life that was almost soft in comparison with that of the Canadian cadet, lie has to perform all the menial tasks before mentioned and others as well. We were called the pampered pets of the I British Army, yet the only consideration shown us wa the privilege of half-fares on trains, half-rates to all places of amusement and total exemption from all war-taxes.
“Here there is not the war-time atmosphere thick with melancholy, nor the thousands of war-worn veterans invalided home from France and Melgium. Conditions here seem almost impossible, all too good to be true. I am anxious to go ‘across.’ but I know full well that just as soon as I get there I shall be sighing for home. It is only after one has been away that he can appreciate ‘the land of sunshine and flowers
“Ililt what about flying? (). yes, I took my first ‘solo’ after an hour and three-quarters of instruction. It is the Canadian and Pritish principle that a man is a flyer at once or not at all. The sensations of that first ride alone are indescribable. I felt like the greatest man in the world. Once I landed 1 had to write home inline-IJ HUT I: X. IX T FR.IXK . . FLY XX. R. •'. C.
diately and sleep did not close my eyes that night. I was too elated almost to eat.”
I Fere “ Pep” got off something characteristic in response to a question regarding the qualifications necessary for an aviator. “Forty per cent, nerve, sixty per cent, natural aptitude and one hundred per cent confidence. W hen instructing I always gave three hours to a new cadet, if he wished it. but most of them were living alone before the third hour.
“Most of us never think of danger, though we do get into some trying situations. Twice, for example, 1 was living on days that up above were clear and bright, almost ideal, but when 1500 feet or so from the ground I felt myself in a 'Texas ‘norther.’ 'Talk about cold and going fast! I was moving at the rate of sixty miles an hour before I struck that driving wind, itself blowing at least sixty miles an hour, so you can imagine how I Hew along. At times the air seems bumpy and full of waves, your wings will tip and then you have to think quickly and show your natural aptitude and nerve.
“Stunts? Why, we encourage the cadets to perform all sorts of the so-called stunts. All the tricks of the fivers at the Exposition are ordinary movements now for aviators. One of our favorite tricks in Texas was to swoop down upon the cattle in order to watch them scurrying in all directions. One day we, a cadet and myself, had alighted on account of engine trouble near a large hog ranch. Xo sooner had we touched the ground than a farmer came rushing towards us shouting, ‘One of yer air-birds Hew over my pens yesterday, skeering my pigs. I’ll git my gun after yer, if yer do it agin.’
“We had many a funny experience too, in the small towns we flew to. Most of the inhabitants had never seen a plane before and we at once became objects of the greatest curiosity. 'The whole town would turn out38
THE IGNAT AN
to sec us, write all over the wings and if we had not kept a close watch would have cut the plane to pieces.”
Hut how do you account for all the accidents at our flying schools? To “Pep” there seemed nothing strange about these accidents. First, so many more men are flying now than ever before. Then, too, it is not sufficient merely to be able to fly to be of value as a military aviator, everyone must be a second “Art” Smith or Lincoln Heachy. Some men, also, get sick and faint in the air.
“I have seen planes,' said “Pep," “fall to the ground absolutely without any attempt on the part of the pilots to direct them. Our explanation has been that the men fainted or on account of the high altitudes fell asleep. I have at times noticed myself becoming drowsy. Some accidents, of course, are due to the pilot’s becoming rattled and losing his head, or to a disarrangement of the mechanism.
“In my own accident, for example, we were in a tail
spin about four hundred feet from the ground, when the
controls refused to work. We could see the ploughed ground below us, but the thought of seeing our Guardian Angels never entered my mind. We figured on coming out of the spin all right and would have done so if we
had been a little higher. As it was, O’Carroll, the cadet,
had his right leg broken in three places, while I was fortunate enough to escape with a broken nose and a face that was literally broken from check to cheek. Of course, we were pretty badly bruised all over the body, but thanks be to God, suffered no internal injuries. I am on furlough now, got an extension of it a day or so ago, but don’t know yet for how long. Before coming home I went up alone once just to see how it felt. The old fascination still remained, and I am waiting anxiously for the time when I shall be allowed to rejoin the Black Cat Squadron.”

. I v I )ea rest 1 ;ol ks:
Between the first and second trick at guard, I want to get a letter written to you. Today I am on guard, my post being on the forecastle, right up in front. 1 asked to he assigned to this duty, our platoon furnishing the Company guard today. If anything interesting is to happen, I want to see it, if possible. My hours on duty are from 12 to 2; and 2 to 6. and to-night again from 12 to 2: and 6 to 8 in the morning. We are now right in the midst of the submarine zone, and if anything is to happen, it will from now on. I wish 1 could tell you all about our trip from the time we left Camp Greene to the present. But the censorship is quite strict. Hence. I must omit all reference to matters of a military nature and speak mainly of personal events. Naturally, such a letter cannot be very interesting: the rest will have to keep until a future, if we ever come across again to the States.
We are within a short distance of our destination: but, strange to say, we don’t know what our destination is. I doubt if our officers themselves know where we are going. That’s the way things are done nowadays. But if this secrecy helps to get us there safely, we should worry where “there” is. Well know when we get there: besides, it doesn’t make much difference to what part of France we go, provided we go there. And it looks as if the chances are good that well reach shore safely. A short while longer and there won't be any doubt about it. Strange to say, I haven't been the least bit worried about the trip, or a bit anxious. I hope this letter will reach you promptly, as I understand that mail, ready at the time of docking, will be forwarded to the Cnited States on the first steamer and censored on the other side to avoid delay. e have beenLETTERS FROM “OVER THERE" 41
very fortunate in having good weather most of the way across. ()nly two days did we have what might be called rough weather. At times the sea resembled a millpond more than an ocean, so that altogether we have had a good trip. A lot of our soldiers, though, have never seen water, mush less crossed an ocean, and at times we had a good many cases of "mal cle mer." Happily, as I expected, I wasn’t sick a moment, which undoubtedly helped materially to the enjoyment of the trip.
When I say enjoyment, 1 must use the word advisedly, as I could hardly call it enjoying this trip. I cannot help going back in spirit to 1909 when 1 had a real enjoyable time. Hut that was for pleasure and this is for war. Probably as good a comparison as could be made, would be to call that trip travelling de luxe and the present one travelling steerage. There’s this much we have on the steerage travel, and that is that our companions are a great deal cleaner and much more agreeable. ( therwise, I can’t say there’s much difference.
We sleep in bunks two in a row and in tiers of three high. I am fortunate in having one of the best, or had, I better say, the least worst if such grammer is permissible. Mine is a top one with a ventilator directly over my head,
a port hole but a few feet away and a stairs, leading to the
deck, right alongside. So as far as air is concerned I am
very lucky, more fortunate than all the rest, or than most
of them. Then again, I have an electric light right above my head, so that when the wind is blowing and we cannot read on deck. I read in my bunk. Hence, our sleeping accommodations can hardly be called palatial. A sardine in a can has elbow room, compared to the room we have. 'That's one of the reasons I haven’t removed my clothing since boarding the ship. The other one is also an im-
portant one, namely, that we would not waste any time putting our clothes on. should the necessity arise of abandoning the ship. I hope we shall not have the opportunity42

of testing whether the life preservers can keep us floating or not. The water just now looks too cold. A few days ago we might have thought otherwise.
Feeding is quite a difficulty on board. We “chow” in the navv twice a day. They seem to overlook the fact that sea air creates an appetite. I hit twice a day is often enough considering the difficulty of getting it. llelieve me, I would not want to line up a third time, although by this time I am fully acclimated to lining up. That seems to be the only of the chief occupations in the army. One lines up for anything and everything. Well, having procured the much-desired chow (not much variety, not an overabundance) in our mess kit, we sit down, not on tables, but on the crowded floor. When the steamer rolls, it’s quite an acrobatic feat not to stumble over everybody else’s coffee. I always manage to take away a couple of large pieces of bread (fine bread, this navy bread), so that between meals I have bread and butter or jam or pickles or chocolate or anything else we can procure from the canteen. With it all I haven’t lost any weight and I manage to get by. Only I anxiously anticipate the pleasure of a few good French meals with a bottle of wine. I hope they will allow us sufficient liberty to get this. Some day perhaps I shall have another ocean trip, but taken in my own way. Considering that we are going to war. we could be worse off.
As men have to be fed. quarters kept clean, order preserved. we are naturally assigned to occasional duties. My duties have consisted mainly of guard duty. Today makes my fourth day during the trip. So that you see we have a good deal of time to ourselves, most of which is taken up with reading. I never saw such a demand for books, notwithstanding the fact that we have any number of them. Truly, ours is a reading community. Most of the books are furnished by the American Library Association. This association deserves all the support the people at home can give it in the way of books or money. I have read a few, among43
LETTERS FROM "OFliR THERE"
them some of Shakespeare's. You see I am getting quite literary. Every day I also put in a couple of hours of French study. I hope it won’t do me any harm.
Well, before long I shall have to go on guard again, so I better bid you au revoir." I hope you are all feeling as well, happy, and cheerful, as yours truly. With love to you all. I am as ever, affectionately. Rob.
A later date—
Have arrived at our point of destination without having been hit by a submarine. Thanks be to God. The sight of dear old France thrills me and it is impossible for me to tell you how delighted I am to be in French territory. My wishes have been achieved. Xow I want to get to work.
I shall try to write soon again, Bob.

Easter Sunday in France. I never thought last year that I would celebrate this day over here. I received Holy Communion this morning in the Cathedral. It is a beautiful structure, and to-day it looked splendid. There is a Belgian priest there who speaks perfect English, lie did not preach at the early mass, but was scheduled to speak later.
This is a great Catholic country: it seems as if even-one you meet is of the same faith. There is any number of churches in town, but the procedure is much different from that at home. The mass is said very quickly and the singing is peculiar.
Well. I guess everything is about the same in San Francisco. It is hard to realize how far away I am. This is a beautiful country about here: it surprised me very much, as it contains mam interesting sights. The weather, however, has been very mean the past few days, rainy and miserable.
I suppose by this time you have received one of my letters at least. I’m anxious to hear. We have been here now close to a month, and are becoming pretty much accustomed to conditions and duties. 1 manage to use a few words in French, which comes in very handy. The only trouble is, when you ask for something in French, they immediately take it for granted that you speak the language fluently, and the result is a jabber, jabber to you in response, and you are completely lost.
Everything is all right with me, except that I am becoming very, very lonesome for t S. A. already. There is no place like it from what I’ve seen so far. Of course when a person is traveling as you were on your trip toEnsign P. A. Carew, Lieut. LL. B., ’17 C. J. Carew H. L.

Europe, it is most likely different. I can imagine it was very interesting.
My work here is very much like my line at the Gas Co. on a small scale, and I am very well satisfied. Time will go quickly now that I am settled. No doubt you were anxious to hear how I came out with my trip, etc. I managed to get a few lines from the ship, but don’t know whether you received them or not.
Well, this letter gives you just about enough news as you would desire, I think, as I am healthy and contented. Remember me to all at home.

Mv dear Mother:
Since last I wrote you I have received your letter, dated December 6, 1917, and another box containing socks, sweater, a magazine, pneumatic pillow, and the “()lympic Club Specials,” the gracious gift of brother James. This letter must have become lost, strayed or stolen, but. nevertheless, it arrived here safely, and it is tip to me to answer it regardless of the fact that I have previously answered letters of a much later date.
I have a slight recollection of one of the first letters that I received from you after I had arrived in sunny (or muddy) France. In it you asked me when I. or some of the men working with me. thought that the war would be over. I purposely avoided answering this question, as I did not know, but just the other day I discovered the answer, and it is as follows:♦
LETTERS FROM "OVER THERE
“Absolute knowledge I have none:
Rut my aunt’s washerwoman’s sister's son
Heard a policeman on his beat
Say to a laborer on the street
That he had a letter just last week
Written in the finest Greek
From a Chinese coolie in Timbuctoo
Who said the negroes in Cuba knew
Of a colored man in a Texas town
Who got it straight from a circus clown
That a man in Klondike heard the news
From a gang of South American Jews
About somebody in Borneo
Who heard a man who claimed to know
Of a swell society female fake
Whose mother-in-law will undertake
To prove that her seventh sister’s niece
Had stated in a printed piece
That she has a son who has a friend
Who knows when the war is going to end."
That is a very indefinite answer, but is the only one that 1 can give at the present time that hits anywhere near the spot.
Jack rocs on to describe the ceremonies attendant upon tlu burial of three American soldiers, who were killed in battle and interred, in the early part of November, with religious and military ceremony:
An altar was improvised and elaborately decorated in the village, and the chaplain of a French regiment conducted the church services in the presence of a large number of troops. Following the church ceremony, the cortege proceeded to a field adjacent to the village, and formed on three sides of a square, the bodies being placed in front of the grave on the fourth side. The American Hag was placed
THE IGX ATI AX
over the caskets: then a General in the French rmy arrived and took his position with the troops. Immediately the troops presented arms and the French held music and band played a funeral march. The chaplain performed the religious ceremony at the grave. Then the General advanced to the center of the square and addressed the troops and the dead, as follows:
“Of their own free will they had left their happy and prosperous country to come over here. They knew that the war was continuing in Europe; they knew that the forces fighting for honor, love, justice, civilization, were still checked by the long-prepared forces which are serving the powers of brutal domination, oppression and barbarity: they knew that an effort was still necessary. They wished to give us their help, and also their generous hearts did not forget old historical memories, while others forgot more recent ones.
‘‘They ignored nothing of the circumstances: nothing had been concealed from them: neither the length nor hardships of this war; nor the violence of the battle, nor the dreadfulness of the new weapons, nor the perfidy of the foe. Nothing stopped them. They had accepted to lead a hard and strenuous life; they had crossed the ocean despite great peril: they had taken their place at the front by our side: and they had fallen, facing the foe in a hard and desperate hand to hand fight. Honor to them! Their families, their friends, their fellow citizens will be proud when they learn of their heroic death in the cause of Liberty.
“Men! These graves, the first to be dug in our national soil, at but a short distance from the enemy, are as a mark of the mighty hand of our allies, firmly clinging to the common task, confirming the will of the people and Army of the sacrifice as long as it will be necessary until final victory for the noblest of causes—that of the liberty of nations, of the weak as well as the mighty.
LETTERS FROM “01 HR THERE" 4‘)
“The death of this humble corporal and of these two privates appeals to us with extraordinary grandeur.
“We will, therefore, ask that the mortal remains of these young men be left here, he left to us forever. We
will inscribe on their tombs: ‘Here lie the first soldiers
of the great I'nited States Republic to fall on the soil of I ’rance. for justice and liberty 'The passer-by will stop and uncover his head. The travelers of France, of the allied countries, of America, the men of heart, who will come to visit our battlefields of—will go out of the
way to come here, to bring to these graves the tribute of their respect and of their gratitude.
“Corporal Gresham, Private Enright. Private Hay. in
the name of France, I thank you. God receive your souls. Farewell."
At the conclusion of this speech three volleys were fired and taps were sounded. All troops were then marched by the grave, saluting as they passed. The French General and his Staff advanced to the grave, saluted and departed. 'Hius ended one of the most impressive ceremonies that one could ever hope to witness. . . .

X this little sketch, I an ancient Irish chieftain of some credit and renown, as an emissary of the powers that rule, intend to set forth the particulars of an event which caused wonder and consternation among the knowledge-seeking students of St. Ignatius High School. You already probably have heard a great deal of the ghost story that brought the rightly famous Red and I’due 145-lb. basketball team to the attention of one of San Francisco’s city editors and almost into the Sunday magazine section of the yellowest of the American yellow journals.
It was on March the seventeenth, a day which all good Irishmen observe with deepest respect, that in my daily wanderings—we Irish are privileged characters abone—1 noticed this aforesaid team celebrating their latest victory in a lonely spot, somewhere in California. But horror of all horrors, there mingling with my countrymen in the joyous celebration of the Patron of Ireland’s feast day. was one known throughout the Ignatian world as “Jew” Sillaw. I was provoked, nay shocked at the sight, and into my brain, outraged by the daring of this young Hebrew and the thoughtlessness of his companion, came thoughts of dire vengeance.
(), for my shellalah of old ! Yet upon viewing the scene at closer range, I found that the poor gossoons themselves had given me an ideal opportunity for the discharging of my patriotic and religious duty. It seemed that one of the team. “I 'ran” Xagar by name, had failed to report for K. P. duty that morning, and as a punishment the lads resolved to scare him by saying that the house was haunted. Interested. I awaited developments.
At the dinner table, “Codd" Sully asked “Yal” Gun who52
sat opposite him, it the night before about three-quarters of an hour after they had gone to bed, he had not seen a light moving up and down the hallway. "Xo,” replied “Yal" as did also the rest of the party, “Boy" Lee, "Jew" Sillaw, Ward Iloborn, “Fran" Xagar and “I’pa" Juffy.
“Well, I may have been dreaming," said “Codd" in his drawling way, "but I could have sworn that I saw a light pass up and down that hall at least six times. It made such an impression on me that at times I almost think that i got up to see if anything was wrong. And yet again there is a sort of haziness in my mind about the whole affair and I feel that I must have been having a nightmare. I didn’t mention the thing before because I didn’t wish to scare you fellows. I thought that if any of you had seen the same thing you would say something about it. but with the rain beating down upon the shingled roof in torrents, and the wind sighing and howling through the redwoods, I am beginning to fell awfully ‘spooky’.’’
Now was the time for "Yal" to get in his deadly work. And he in his suavest tones spoke up, "I’m sorry, fellows, that this thing has happened again, and I don’t wish to frighten you. but my mother saw that light at least three times before. And it made such an impression upon her. that if I had my way we'd all get out of here tonight, but in this storm that is impossible."
As if by magic an atmosphere of deep gloom began to settle slowly over the gathering. Almost perfect silence reigned, and the tricksters used this to their advantage. Kvery creaking of the house, every rattle of the window was construed as the work of a diabolical fiend. Knocks were heard in various parts of the room, and knives and forks were hurled through the air. And all this so adroitly and so realistically, that eves began to ask other eyes across the table if this was really a part of the game. The whole crowd began to feel "creepy." Xagar was visibly frightenedSOLVED AT LAST
Dinner over, other pranks began. Klectric lights and candles went out. queer shriekings and bowlings resounded throughout the house, while the mysterious knockings continued. Xagar was still ignorant of the plot, and lie gathered more fear.
At last the time had come for me to vent my pent-up spleen upon the scoffing “Jew." You know how those of his race pull other people s legs. ell. as he was sitting in a corner driving poor Xagar almost to desperation. I got hold of his pedal extremity and gave it a terrible yank.
I le screeched with pain, nor could the combined efforts of Lee. Hoborn. Xagar and Juffy relieve his agony.
All the while the “Sully" person sat there poking tun at the squirming “Jew." I suppose that was his part in the little comedy, but 1 made up my mind to drive that smile off. It exasperated me, and as the future “tooth-carpenter" stepped out of the room, on some fiendish errand bent, I struck his adamantine head, and he fell like lead. Lee rushed to help him and dragged him back into the room.
I'nt I was not yet through with the Israelite. Me. too. felt my power, and was soon laid cold beside his former tormentor.
My scheme was working famously. “Sully" and Sillaw lay stretched on the floor, with Xagar kneeling beside them imploring them to speak. They finally heard him. and bran, quite beside himself, at the first sign of returning consciousness broke out into husky song, and soon had the crowd with him. Ileautiful? Why the clamor of noise had the Metropolitan Chorus hushed to a whisper. And still they never seemed to tire.
Rut to make a long story short, my sweetest pleasure came after they had gone to bed and were just about to fall asleep. Then light in hand I paraded down the hall, moaning as I went. Xo Sioux medicine man at a medicine dance ever sounded more ghoulish. W ith a shriek the 45’s
leaped out upon the floor and rushed towards Xagar who had crawled beneath his bed and was praying louldly for mercy. At first all tried to dissemble their own fears by directing their efforts towards quieting Fran, but when they found that Codd was missing they were panic-stricken. A hasty search revealed him lying by his bed, apparently asleep, though his eyes and mouth were opened wide, and he was breathing gaspingly.
"First-aid” treatment brought Sully to. and feeling that my work had been well done, 1 allowed the boys to quiet down, while I betook myself to more familiar haunts, there to recount to Brian Born, Daniel O'Connell and all the other Gaelic patriots how I had chastised the presumptions "Jew” and his thoughtless Irish “pals.”
There's a call of summer in the wandering breeze; An invitation in the rustling trees;
There’s a siren-song away Where the summer streamlets play,
And the daisy stars are bursting on the leas.
Can’t you feel that restless surging in your veins? Can't you hear the distant murmur of the plains? And the whisper of the rills,
In the russet sunset hills,
And the far-off shadows of the forest lanes?
Were you ever where the crystal pools are deep In the castles where the mottled brook-trout sleep? Where the limpid river laves,
O’er the mossy water-caves,
And the drooping branches of the alders sleep?SUMMER
Have you ever heard the ruffled wood-cock’s call Go ringing down the forest’s shady mall?
Have you seen the caverns gray Where the darting minnows play;
Or the salmon leap the crested water-fall?
'I'he music in the lavelock’s swelling trill: Resounding from the meadow-grasses still,
Have you heard?—the mellow note Trembling in the ring-dove's throat.
And the querulous cadence of the whip-poor-will ?
Have you ever seen the footprints of the mink. Lead upward from the rippling lakelet’s brink? Have you seen the otter glide.
From the placid river’s side.
Or the beaver to its sheltering bottom sink?
Do they call you as they’re always calling me? The hills and valleys and the prairies free.
The wildwood fastness far.
Where the forest people are.
Where Nature hides her portal’s golden key?
Do you know the simple joy it is to lie
On a grassy couch beneath the dimpling sky?
Just to lie and drowse away
All the lazy Summer clay
And watch the sleepy cloudlets drifting by?
Come! The hillsides are ablaze with poppy glow: On the mountain-marge the rhododendrons blow: Do you hear the distant call Where the sunset shadows fall?
It’s the waking voice of Summer!—Let us go!

We are at war. the sword is in our hands and we can hut wield it. The time for arguing our decree is past: the die is cast and he who does not throw his TRAITORS whole soul into the struggle to defeat er-many. whether he he native born or naturalized. he is a renegade and lie is a fool.
lie is a renegade: for he that is not with America, heart and soul, is against America, no matter what he may say to the contrary, lie is a fool, for while he may never go to the length that Arnold went, still he must remember that, while now he may. through fear of punishment or worse, conceal his anti-Americanism, yet in the day of reckoning that will surelv come after this ldoodv combat he will he58

asked not what he did not do against America, but what he actually did in her behalf. Useless will it be for him to say that he never raised his hand nor spoke a word against America, he shall be forced to present positive proofs of his loyalty. And if he cannot show these he will be looked upon and rightly so as a traitor to his country.
This is the time for whole-souled action. To-day and
every day it is the duty of every American to support the
Government in every possible way. Everyone may not be
able to don the khaki, nor even buy Liberty Bonds nor
Thrift Stamps, but everyone can aid in the production or
at the least the conservation of foodstuffs; he can aid the
Red Cross in its salvage work; he can stop unjust criticism
of governmental officials, and he can certainly beg Almighty
God to bless the gallant Sons of America who are so bravely.

San Francisco is to be congratulated on the possession of a Police Chief with a very evident intention to drastically suppress a lawless element of KNIGHTS OF our citizenry who have been operating LIBERTY throughout the State as the “Knights of Liberty ’ This organization, composed either of misguided patriots or possibly pro-German zealots masquerading in the fantastic dress of the “KIu Kluk” providing criminal entertainment for themselves and absolutely ignoring constitutional methods of enforcing law, stands as a dangerous and disgraceful menace which should not be encouraged or tolerated by any civilized country, much less by one whose very sons are shedding their blood for the cause of Democracy and equal rights to all.
Although apparently sincere, they uncover no casesEDITORIAL
of enemy activity, but vent their force on helpless men already registered and under the surveillance of the Federal authorities, and endeavor to pound Democratic principles into these possibly harmless persons by taking them from their beds at night, and at the whim of a mob. subjecting them to a lashing followed by the conventional tar and feathers, or dangling from a convenient tree.
These reprehensible and revolting actions, besides affording a means of avenging personal injuries, will also engender war bitterness and supply the enemy with excuses for taking reprisals on our own innocent and powerless Americans, whether they be interned, or prisoners of war.
Some county officials have been prone to wink at the escapades of these night riders, under the mistaken assumption that the organization is formed with the intention, or is capable of, stamping out disloyalty. Hut it is patent that they mask what is merely a lawless and exciting sport under the guise of patriotic service. These “patrioteers," with their nocturnal rovings, are better suited to “Xo Man’s Land." where they might accomplish some good. Indeed they must earn the contempt of our real Americans ‘‘over there" who are now sacrificing their lives on the blood-soaked plains of Picardy. W hile our country is urgently requesting more volunteers, these men, many of good fighting age, prefer to play safe the game of war by confining it to a fifty-to-onc lynching-bec. thereby impeding the country’s officials, compelling them to cope with the strong arm gangs of these pseudo “Knights of Liberty" or “Pershing Patriots.’’
"They’ll start just once," says Chief White, “and then something is going to happen to them." Every law-abiding citizen should applaud the Chief’s resolution and back him in his suppression of the resurrected klansman.

As the close of our four years' course draws near, the old time “pep" and “jazz" of the Senior Class are still strongly in evidence in all class activities. Our SENIOR membership, however, has been cut into greatly CLASS by the war. being at present less than half that of a year ago. Among the boys who have heard the call to arms, Hill Sheehan, Ford Edwards and Carroll Collins arc now in the Xavy: Tim McGrath and “Dutch" Vandcr Zee were last heard from at Camp Lewis; Charlie Conlon is a sergeant in the Quartermaster’s Department at the Presidio, while Hall Evans holds a like office with the same department at Camp Fremont. Hill Hrennan is also at the latter camp, having joined the 319th Engineers a short time ago. Xor must we fail to omit mention of “Pep” Flynn, the life of the class for three years. “Pep” was recently injured in an aeroplane accident in Texas, when he was instructing as a lieutenant with the British Flying Corps. He has now recovered from his injuries and hopes to be back in the service soon. The Seniors are confident that there will be “something doing” when “Pep" gets into action “over there.”
There were rumors about that Jim Morris, who saw active service in 98, had gone back on the war path. Jim’s last battle, however, was with the Appellate Court in the October Bar ex’s, from which he came forth with dying colors. He has recently opened an office and we wish him success.
The Moot Court, which is now holding sessions on Monday evening in Judge Deasy’s courtroom, is receiving enthusiastic interest. Cases are prepared and argued in a manner that makes the judges’ task a difficult one. The Juniors who acted as jurymen in a recent trial admit that Charly W ing’s pathetic elocptence brought tears to their eyes, while Joe O’Malley would persuade the aver-62
THE IGAv 77AN
age court that yes meant no, in arguing a case with Ed Moll.
Preparation for the faculties is of course being given the greatest attention at this time. With the dreaded ordeal only a short time hence, some of the men in the 1A class say they would just as soon be drafted before-then; however, we all feel confident. The liar examination must also be taken hereafter, but with our efficient four-year course under our able professors, this latter examination should be comparatively easy. J. Wall.
In the greying, fast-failing light of early evening, the Junior Classroom seems a place peopled by “spooks.” In an imaginative mood, we may gaze at the JUNIOR rows of empty chairs and see once again the CLASS faces of our old friends, now in the service of the United States.
There sat that merry wit. “Chick” Wiseman. It’s lucky for the Germans that their sense of humor is armor-plated, because if Chick ever got a crack at them, he’d “ki r them to death.
Over in the corner, close, very close to the stove, sat “Long Joe” Pritchard. Poor Joe had a terrible time enlisting. He had ambitions to soar in the blue empyrean, and started out full of confidence to enlist in the Aviation Corps, but the examiners listened to his heart, and heard a murmur which sounded something like this: “Obak—Durham—Melachrino." So they decreed that Joe had gone high enough already. Nothing daunted by his rejection, he started on a tour of all the recruiting offices in town, and finally succeeded in enlisting in the Ambulance Corps. If everyone had Joe’s patriotic fervor draft laws would be useless.

the first to leave us, to go and learn how to succor his wounded brothers on the field of battle. If the other members of the Medical Corps are half as earnest as “Doc" was in his Law School arguments, the Corps will be 100% efficient.
Speaking of the "first to leave," the honor of being the very first in the ’19 Class belongs to Lieutenant Paul Tissot, who won his commission in the first Officers’ Training Camp at the Presidio. And there are many more, a total of eighteen—ten in the Army, six in the Navy and two in the Marine Corps: Sergeant Barnes with the Grizzlies: Meherin. O’Brien, Ross, Flood, Wiseman, Naval Reserve: Louis Thynnes, said to be in the Aviation Corps; Terry Boyle, Frank Murphy and Fred McDonald, Army. John Connolly, who formerly gathered facts for the sporting page of a local newspaper, is now gathering the same for Uncle Sam.
To come back to the Class of '19 as at present constituted, the rest, residue and remainder are but a handful, a scarce half-dozen. Chief among these are those veterans of various “engagements’ finally culminating in the great “Battle of Matrimony,’’ whose incapacity for further fighting Uncle Sam has officially recognized. Their fighting spirit has been “gassed” to death these many years. The others are suffering only from some physical deficiency.

These are stirring times, times of glory and of trial, when men and women, too. all over the world, in every walk of life are making sacrifices innumerable in the heroic fight for liberty. And it is with the greatest pride that we see the long list, every day growing larger, of those Alumni and former students of St. Ignatius who are engaged in furthering this noble cause, whether it be in actual service or in the capacity of those who arc doing their bit at home by assisting the government in financing this great war.
But before we mention Alumni in particular we would ask you to read our service list and note the number of families, members of which formerly attended St. Ignatius, and who have two and at least in one case three brothers actually in the service. We have not the exact number at hand but we remember the surprise we experienced when our attention was called to this point.
Alumni, Alma Mater is proud of your noble record, proud that you have learned her teachings well, and proud that now in the crucial test you are not being found wanting.
“The Ignatian.” too. is proud of your record, and hopes that every former student of St. Ignatius will help to keep the Editor of this department informed of any items that he thinks may be of interest to the “old boys.’’

My usual week end letter.
The first two weeks arc gone, and if the remaining ten pass as rapidly, it will seem no time until this course is completed. Yesterday we were transferred to what they call the “main ship,” and now, I take it, the real work begins.
I see Jake only once in a while, and then only for a few minutes. VYe are on the run from six in the morning until ten at night and in my "flight —that’s a class among us aviators, you know—we have the proverbial twenty minutes for lunch. We drill two hours daily and march in company formation to every meal and class. Don’t blame me for putting the meal ahead of the class in that last sentence. It was merely accidental. Both are equally interesting and it doesn't matter greatly which comes first.
Our course at the present time takes up practically everything from gas engines to electricity, save of course, steam heat and built-in bath tubs. Lots of the boys arc trained along one or two lines before coming here, and it isn't so hard for them, but you take a couple of “ath-a-letes” like Jake and myself, whose early training ran largely to Blackstone. Ben McKinley and baseball—well, if we didn’t enlist with a desire to do some fighting, many's the time we’d be sore enough to fight anyhow. So, dear folks, you can see that there isn’t any need for the Kaiser's worrying about U. S. not getting results. We’re living exponents of the truth of the grand old Shakespearean maxim, “There’s more than one way to kill a cat.”
We have our new uniforms now and pardon me, if I say that we look real natty. Jake looks like a page from the catalogue of the House of Kuppenhcimer. He says I look like a page from the I’alacc Hotel.
California’s athletes are well represented here. Most prominent, I think, is Frank Sloman, quarter-miler from San Fran-ALU MM SOT US
cisco. Mis rival from U. C., Karl Gocppert, is also here, as is King, a former Blue and Gold sprinter. My “flight” runs largely to tennis players, with Johnny Strachan and Van Dyke Johns in the fold.
Practically all of the colleges and universities are represented here. Of course not all the education foundries are as pretentious as my Alma Mater, nor have all such formidable representatives as Jake and myself, but all in all it’s a great outfit, and I don't know any life or experience I’d trade for this.
I rang up Justin Fitzgerald for a few minutes the other evening. Fitz still insists that his arm is all right, when as a matter of fact it must be as dead as Warren’s—and his compares favorably with Ramcsis XXXII I, who has been in the tiling cabinet for a good many years, unless the history I assimilated in Freshman is all wrong.
I guess the youngsters at home must be crippled, for I haven’t heard from a one. You might tell Warren to lay off writing so much for old man Crothers’ Bulletin, and dictate a couple of columns for the youth who subscribes himself
P. S.—No one as yet has tried to sell Jake the horse Paul Revere rode.

F. man, W illiam A. “Jake” Sullivan, ex- 07, chief counsel in the office.

Riley and Ben McKinley, for the great sacrifices they made that Our Service Flag Blessing might be the great success it was.

ALUMNI ASSOCIATION ST. IGNATIUS UNIVERSITY
May 8, 1918.
Dear Fellow Alumnus:
Your attention is again lirectcd to the Blessing of the Service Flag of your Alma Mater at St. Ignatius Church on Sunday, May 12th. Our fellow alumnus, Rev. Jos. M. Gleason, will deliver the sermon, and the services are under the direction of the several army chaplains located at the near-hy camps. Representatives from all of the various religious, military and civil bodies about the hay counties will be in attendance, and a special effort is being made to have the members of the alumni present.
Among the 378 stars (3 gold) represented on the flag are many known personally to each one of us, and it would seem that words would be unnecessary to impress upon us the sentiments of loyalty, of friendship and of duty that require our presence at an occasion where the blessing of God is called down upon our old fellow students, who are now serving in their nation's forces, and where we may publicly honor the three of our lads who have “gone West,” and whose golden stars upon our service flag glow like a halo, crowning the valor and the patriotism of their three hundred fellow Ignatians.
In view, therefore, of the particularly appealing nature of this event, you are earnestly exhorted to be present, even though it entails a sacrifice, at this symbolic blessing of your old schoolmates, who are now yielding the “supreme sacrifice.’’
JOSEPH A. MURPHY, President. RAYMOND T. FFELY, Secretary.

Along1 with the numerous, patriotically inclined song hits, that have been piling higher and higher on our parlor music stands, and among the ragtime outbursts, that have been making it possible for patriots to give vocal vent to the exuberance of that particular sentiment, we notice one entitled “When a Rah! Rah! boy goes Bang! Bang!” There may or may not be the soul of a Beethoven in this ‘‘Try it on your piano” edition, but there is certainly a great deal of suggestiveness and significance in the theme and the title, for it just hits off the situation in many of our universities
It certainly is a fact that lively patriotism and the military spirit have come to claim their dominant place at St. Ignatius, where formerly “school spirit” was the principle of activity. Many of our undergraduates have followed the example of the alumni in joining the colors, feeling in their hearts the sentiment which some one has thus described,
I'lie Student speaks:
“I will give my brain and my soul Oh ! God ! I can't remain;
I will pay to the full the toll And will not wince at pain.”
Fhe majority of fellows, however, not of the draft age, have remained to fit themselves for later duties, but nevertheless they are full of real American patriotism, grateful for every opportunity to ‘‘do their bit,” and active in all “Red Cross.” “War-Saving” or “Liberty Bond” drives launched at the University. The various corridors and the “venerable halls” of our school are profusely decorated with service flags, Red Cross lists. War-Saving notices, war information and Liberty Bond posters.
Car be it from us to “criticize the government.” but the mention of Liberty Bond posters recalls a matter regardingUXIVERSITY NOTES
which we can whisper a word of advice into Uncle Sam's ear. “Be more select and artistic, Uncle, in your choice of appropriate poster subjects, at least at St. Ignatius.” It was rather exasperating, when, one morning at the entrance to the University, the usual influx of husky native Americans was confronted by a poster, picturing a band of immigrants trotting down the gang plank to make their debut in the United States, and, bearing the caption, “Remember the land of your adoption”! But can you imagine on the next morning a crowd of University students, greeted by a beautiful poster on the opposite wall appealing to them to “Buy liberty bonds for their ciiii.drkn”?
Oh! if that bewhiskered I Inn who “owns” Germany could only see the troubles he is causing!
At the first meeting of the semester, the Senior Debating Society held an election and installed a new “administration.” The officers for nineteen-cightecn are S. P. D. S. as follows: President, Father Joseph Mor-

Mr. Stanislaus Riley presided at the exercises of the evening.
Two days later the whole society embarked for a launch ride on the bay. As soon as the "prohibitionists" could be coaxed away from their enthusiastic inspection of the winery of the California Wine Association at Winehaven. the party steered for Paradise Cove, where the remainder of the day was devoted to a game of "hair-raising" baseball and to a swimming festival, in which the members dived from the deck of the launch for “lurking submarines." as the lively strains of the ukuleles were wafted down the bay to the intern camp on Angel Island to the tune of “Dum-de-deedle-de. dum-de-deedle-de, Kaiser Bill’s a bum!"

One afternoon during the semester, the students were agreeably surprised to sec their old comrade, Mark De-vine, march briskly into their midst in MILITARY full military regalia. Mark had been with VISITORS us at College during the earlier part of the year but later on he had passed army examinations and traveled back to Fort Leavenworth to receive a thorough course in preparation for a lieutenancy in the cavalry. Mis return was welcomed by all the fellows with a greeting of Rahs! and cheers: he was accorded a place of honor with the Faculty at the monthly specimen in the afternoon, and at the suggestion of Father Kavanaugh he was unanimously yielded the floor in the Sophomore and Freshman English class, where he delivered an interesting lecture concerning his experiences and his studies at Leavenworth. Lieutenant Devine left for "over there" soon after. Then one day the Fathers at St. Ignatius received the significant little card, stating that he had “arrived safely" in France—“Over the top, Mark, and the best of luck.”
Another St. Ignatius boy, who was with us not so long ago but who won his way to a commission after an important course of military studies at Fortress Monroe, is 'I'. Paul Ahern. After a long absence Paul returned from the East and came at once to the University, where he is well remembered among both students and professors, hirst Lieut. Ahern is at the present time stationed at Fort Canby. W ash.

American people. The interest of his vivid descriptions, the power of his graphic portrayals of “war’s sad scenes," the beauty of his earnest appeals were all made doubly attractive and impressive by reason of his quaint, pleasing and charming French accent. He told the breathlessly attentive students that even in the turmoil, the fire and the fury of war, there were scenes of pathetic beauty, examples of religious zeal, instances of moral grandeur. He told us that the heroic soldiers, in their grim trials, in their almost despairing duties, were turning more and more to the consolation of religion and to the sympathetic encouragement of the Cross. Then he described the historic charge of “his boys" in the attack on Fort Douamont, the key to Verdun, where every man murmured the “battle slogan," “They shall not pass.” We could almost see “his boys" advancing beneath the fiery curtain of the “barrage." After relating to the assembled students a number of exciting, and beautiful personal experiences, he concluded and left a lasting impression upon his listeners, each of whom could well say, “Deeply hath sunk the lesson thou hast given.

Messrs. Gerald O’Gara, W illiam Kcillv, and Charles Bo-den. Negative—Messrs. Gerald Sullivan, George Devine, and Xorbert Feeley. The subject of “military training after the war” was given as the proposition to be discussed at the public debate.
On April 25. these six debaters assumed their “Senatorial” dignities and in a lively and closely contested debate gave evidence of their Philhis-torian training. William T. Sweigert presided as chairman of the evening. W hen all had concluded their arguments and after the Honorable Judges, Messrs. E. Cullinan, Beretta and Knights had concluded “their spirited debate in the other room.” Mr. Eustace Cullinan announced from the stage that by a vote of two to one the medal had been awarded to William Reilly. 1 he minority favored Xorbert Feeley. 'I'he Society in general and 1‘resident Aloysius M. Torre, S. J.. in particular, merit sincere congratulations for the excellent work of the Junior Philhistorians.

W hen on Thursday evening, March 14th. the referee’s whistle announced the close of our basketball game with Santa Clara,—a terrific battle by the way,—it sounded also the cessation of all intercollegiate athletics at St. Ignatius for the present semester at least. Many were the reasons given for this decision, but as the war is being forced to shoulder the blame for much this year, we may just as well say that it caused what in ordinary times most students would consider a great calamity.
What our basketball season was cannot be entirely seen from the records. Statistics may not lie, but certainly they do leave out many an illuminating circumstance. They do not tell for instance that on the very night of the California game our teamwork was broken up to a great extent by the sudden departure of our trusty captain, Henry Hoyle, for the Quartermaster’s school at Jacksonville. Florida: neither do they mention the trying hours at which our players practiced.
The fellows did wonderfully well and deserve the greatest praise. They showed, too. a magnificent fighting spirit as manifested in the Santa Clara and St. Mary’s games, in both of which, when with the score overwhelmingly against them at the end of the first half, they came back valiantly and actually outscored their opponents. In but one game did the team seem outclassed and that was at Keno. Every other game was closely contested and well worth seeing.
But why if the basketball and football seasons proved so successful, was baseball dropped? hirst, our registration this year is unusually small and the same students have been participating in all branches of sport: secondly, a number of athletes had signed contracts with I’ncle Sam and expected to be called any time; thirdly, the teams had not been supported by the Student Body as they shouldOhlandt. Molkenbuhr. Wallis. Larrecou, O'Neill (Capt.). Hallinan.
Williamson, Maroevich, Wagner, Cronin, Thorpe (Mgr.).UNIVERSITY ATHLETICS
have been, and neither the football nor the basketball seasons had been a success financially.
So. for the time being, athletics are dead at St. Ignatius. But after the summer vacations football will be started again: in fact, the punters have been out for light practice already. We can’t say now just what the prospects will be. but with Thorpe, “Tub” O’Neill, Ilallinan. the “Ishi" Brothers, Janas, Lennon, Halpin, Mahan, Sweigert. and McLaughlin to build around, everything looks bright for a prosperous season.
California 24, St. Ignatius 19.
As already stated, the team was without the services of Captain Terry Boyle in this game, and the entire line-up had to be switched at the last moment. Larrecou was not able to start, and we entered the contest with practically a green team. It is true neither team played real collegiate basketball, nor was this to be expected as it was the first game of the year for each team. At half-time the score was eleven up, and until about the last three minutes of play, it was anybody’s game. Then a couple of good shots bv Salmina enabled California to win by five points. For California Salmina and Green starred, while Eddie Molkenbuhr and O’Neill did some clever passing for the Varsity, although neither shot as well as he did later in the season. The showing of a new man, Wagner, at center, was encouraging, though Maroe-vich’s playing was not to be despised. Larrecou. who was nursing a sprained ankle, was able to last but a few minutes. All in all the team did better than anyone ever expected it to do.
Stanford 31, St. Ignatius 19.
On the night of February 8th the Varsity went down the peninsula to Palo Alto to meet the Cardinal team, and86
came back on the short end of a 31-19 score. However, the score does not in any way indicate the closeness of the game throughout. In the first half St. Ignatius was ahead until time was almost called, when some Stanfordite shot a field goal just as the whistle was about to blow, thus making the score 11-11. In the second half the play was almost as close with the Varsity passing all around our opponents, but with shot after shot being missed by our forwards, Larrecou and Molkenbuhr, who for some unknown reason were entirely off-color. But when the Cardinal players got the ball, which was not often, they shot unerringly, thus beating us out by 12 points. o shooting of much account was done on our team, while Sullivan did most of the scoring for Stanford. (iXeill’s stellar playing at guard and the jumping of Wagner at center were the only features of the game on our side.
St. Ignatius 45—Davis Farm 19.
()n Saturday night, February 16. our boys won their first league victory by simply playing rings around the boys from Davis harm. O'Neill. Wallis and Larrecou got busy early in the first half, and after that the game was never in danger. “Tub' and Bert had a great night, scoring 18 and 17 points, respectively. Cronin in this game showed that he was just about rounding into the form that was to signalize his play in our future contests. The guards, too. Larrecou and W illiamson played more of a defensive game, “Larry" especially smothering pass after pass and at the same time fed our forwards beautifully. For Davis. Harper did some nice shooting from almost impossible distances.
College of Pacific 29, St. Ignatius 52.
In the easiest game of the season for the Varsity,— that against the College of the Pacific, the wearers of the Red and Blue triumphed by a score of 52-29. Minus the services of our two best bets, Captain O’Neill and Lar-UXIl 'ERSITY ATHLET1CS
recou, who were on the sick list, the team went on the court under the leadership of Ray Williamson. In the second half almost the whole second team was on the floor in place of the Varsity. The most interesting feature of the game was the emulation aroused between I ert Wallis and Eddie “Mo”—(it's too long to spell)—over their respective basket-shooting ability. After going through the pile of statistics after the game, Eddie was awarded the Derby for the occasion as he had coaxed in thirteen shots, while “Bertie” could only make nine fall through the rim. Also we must not forget to mention the fact that Yin Hallinan made his initial appearance in a league game this evening, taking his part off well.
St. Mary’s 36, St. Ignatius 26.
On Saturday evening the team, accompanied by a “wee” band of rooters journeyed across to Oakland to battle our old rivals. The game was hard fought from the start, harder perhaps than was expected by our opponents. Our team played a defensive game and “did not early realize that they were greatly outclassed.” “They did devote their efforts to preventing St. Mary’s team from scoring.” but we deny most emphatically that they did not play “straight, clean basketball” as The Collegian’s athletic correspondent would have his readers believe.
At half time St. Mary’s was in the lead, 15 to 2. We offer no alibis, but simply point to the score at the end of the game, 36-26, and to the fact that in the second half we outplayed St. Mary’s, 24 to 21. Possibly “there was a big element of luck in the five goals shot by Molkenbuhr."—it was not Williamson, kind Editor, who made those five shots. —but why not give the devil his due? For the Varsity, Larrecou and “Molkie” starred, while Ritchie and Graf scintillated for the )aklanders, though their whole team ♦ was well balanced. We congratulate them on their
TUB IG X ATI A X
championship, and feel proud of the fact that it was our honor to give them their closest game in the California-Xevada League; though we do feel that The Collegian has done us a grave injustice in accusing us of playing unclean basketball.
IKDITOR’S XOTK: •'Mel" Cronin forgets in his modesty his own wonderful game at center. He was all over the court, guarding his man at all times and shot a couple of goals himself.|
Santa Clara 41—St. Ignatius 40.
It was some game, fellows, and you who missed it. missed an exhibition that for pure gameness and pluck has, in the writer's humble opinion, not been equaled in all our athletic history. The closest approach to it was the St. Ignatius-Yerba Buena Hospital football game last Xovember, when, after the husky ‘‘Jackies’’ at the very beginning of the first half had piled up thirteen points in about half as many minutes, our "lightweights” came right back and led at half time by one point. That was some comeback, but it can’t be compared with the one staged in the ‘‘gym’’ on the night of March 14th. when, with the score at half-time reading 24 to 8 against them, the S. I. battlers returned to the court and literally ran away from Santa Clara’s giants in the second half, scoring 32 points to their opponents’ 17, losing the contest by a point.
Over the first half let us drop a veil: the fellows did everything but play basketball. Whether it was the weight and size of their adversaries, or the news of Lar-rccou’s accident, a sprained ankle received just before the game, is hard to say. They were trying every moment, there could be no mistake about that, but their exhibition from an artistic standpoint was far from pleasing. Santa Clara, on the contrary, was passing cleverly and finding the basket with maddening ease.
But what a difference in the second half! What theUNIVERSITY . Til LET ICS
S. I. boys did then, can be better imagined than described. Little “Eddie’’ and Capt. O’Xeill were here and there and everywhere, basket followed basket in rapid succession, and as the Red and Blue score kept climbing, the enthusiasm of the loyal workers grew apace. But when, with but one minute of play left, a single field-goal meant victory. pandemonium broke loose. Vet that “great and glor-e-e-ous feeling” was not to be ours. The referee’s whistle blew with Santa Clara still one point in the lead.
For Santa Clara, Capt. Don played a remarkable game, and he was ably supported by Korte and Giuchen. For the Varsity, all played well during the second half, with the forwards “Tub” and “Eddie” simply sparkling.
This game brought home more forcibly than ever one of the team’s greatest weaknesses this year, the lack of a reliable foul-shooter. At St. Mary's the boys lost point after point through inability to locate the basket on penalty shots. At Reno “Chet" Ohlandt did exceptionally well in this regard, but in no other game did he show the same steadiness.
Here a word must be said about “peppery" Bill Thorpe, our Athletic Manager and Coach all combined in one. Bill jumped into the breach at the beginning of the season when, for financial reasons, it was decided not to engage a coach, and showed that he knows all the basketball any of our San Francisco exponents of the game know and a little more. Besides he can impart his knowledge, and when it comes to work, he is the first one on the court and the last to leave, and while he’s there it is certainly not a dress parade. Bill, we thank you. and hope that Blackstone will allow you to drag yourself away oftener enough next year to complete our basketball education.

At last it has come to pass, a Red and I due team has won a S. F. A. L. championship. W ay back in 1911 we had a relay team that won most of the trophies in the Vice-President's office, but it was not until this year that we had a real championship team, 'rime and again have S. I. teams been runners-up in the several sports, but we have always had to be satisfied with being “near-champs." Things became so bad after the 120-lb. basketball team under the leadership of Capt. “Yin" McGuire had lost the city championship by one basket, that many of the pessimists began to shout “A St. Ignatius team can’t win a championship. There's a jinx on St. Ignatius.”
May be there was a “jinx" on St. Ignatius,—one should not be too harsh in condemning boys who have seen three of their teams within a year play three championship games only to be beaten each time—but if there ever was such a thing, it exists no longer. On the first of February it was buried after all the customary services had been performed, and it staved buried for one season at least.
NORBERT W. FEELY
St. Ignatius, 22; Sacred Heart, 22.
Our first game was played against our old rivals at the Y. M. II. A. court on Friday afternoon. Febniary 1. The court there is small and the floor very slippery; these are our only alibis. We had expected a hard game and the wearers of the Pine and W hite certainly gave it to us. At half time we were leading by one point, the score standing92
11 to 10. At the close of the game we thought we still had that same advantage, as did also the two scorers, both giving us the game by the score of 23 to 22. Hut a checking up of the scores after the game showed an omission on the part of both officials and it was decided to play the game over after both teams had completed the regular schedules.
The game from an artistic viewpoint was not good. Hoth teams were decidedly nervous, and while the game was clean throughout and exciting, still there was. on account of the slippery tloor. no chance for the teamwork that up to this had signalized the 145 s playing. Poo much credit cannot he given to Capt. Hoyle, for if he had not risen to the emergency and shot 16 points we would not have a championship at St. Ignatius yet.
St Ignatius, 35; Lowell, 18.
As the fellows had in a practice game taken Lowell into camp to the tune of 63 to 15, we had no worries about the outcome of our second league game. At half time the score stood 21 to 2 in our favor, and at the finish. 35 to 18. With the game won a couple of substitutes, Ragan and Redmond, were thrown into the fray and acquitted themselves quite creditably. Capt. Hoyle had an off day, only garnering 17 points, while Wallis had to be satisfied with 12.
St. Ignatius, 26; Lick, 10.
Phis third game proved, though the score does not show it. the hardest of all our games except the one against Sacred Heart. Until about the last eight minutes of play the team did not seem to find itself and the “Tigers.” playing a wonderful defensive game, kept within one point of us. Then the break came, Cantwell coming up from his guard position and shooting two baskets. After that, basket followed basket in quick succession until the whistle found the score as noted above.
Hoyle, as usual, played his strong offensive game at cen-HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETICS
ter. scoring' 16 points, but if ever a guard won a game it was “Doc” Sullivan. Cantwell had been stunned in the first five minutes of play and for most of the first half “Sullic” did practically all the guarding. It was this game that won him his place on the All-Star 145-lb. team.
St. Ignatius, 33: Sacred Heart, 18.
On February 22, this time on the roomy V. M. C. A. court, we played our second game with Sacred Heart. The galleries were crowded with spectators and enthusiasm ran high, But the Red and Blue warriors were not frightened by the rooting, rather the sight of such a large following seemed to make them rise to the occasion, and they started right out and put the game on ice in the first half, scoring 16 points to their opponents' 2. both made on penalty shots. Our guards did great work that half, smothering pass after pass.
Sacred Heart came back strong after the intermission, though even in this half we had the edge on them by one point. Buckley did some fine shooting for the Blue and W hite, scoring 9 points alone. For S. I., Wallis scored 16 points, Boyle 10 and Born 6.
This game carried with it the division championship and was really a “bigger” game than the one against Cogswell for the City honors.
St. Ignatius, 52; Cogswell, 32.
This game was a walkaway from the outset, though in justice to Cogswell it must be admitted that one of their best players, although in the game was, on account of injuries, scarcely up to his ordinary form. At half time the score stood 32 to 12. and before the close of the game the rooters were cheering for our second team, as four substitutes were playing.
Boyle had another bad day. caging the ball but 11 times from the floor and four times from the foul line, for a total of 26 points. Born scored 14 points and Wallis 12.J. Redmond. Wallis. Al. Young (Mgr.), E. A. McFadden, S. J., W. Thorpe (Coach), Duffy. Francis.

St. Ignatius, 32; St. John’s Club, 24.
On March 16th the team journeyed to Napa to play the second team of St. John’s Club, but our reputation had preceded us and when we went upon the floor we found the unlimited team, the first team, averaging about 155 lbs., lined up against us. The game was a iiard one but half time found us leading. 16 to 9.
At the opening of the second half the farmer boys came back strong and soon had the score 19 all. At this juncture Morn went to the side-lines with a nose-bleed, something he had been suffering from earlier in the day.—but the rest was evidently just what the boys needed, for the game was never in danger after that.
Every man on the team deserves a lot of credit for this game, Wallis and Moyle for their great shooting, the former scoring 13 points, the latter 15. Howard Morn for the great pluck he showed in holding his own with an opponent outweighing him at least thirty pounds, and Jimmy Duffy for going in at guard, a position entirely new to him, and smothering pass after pass. ‘‘Jerry” Sullivan, of course, played his usual fine game.
Points scored by opponents. 198.
Points scored by St. Ignatius, 425.
Individual scoring:—Moyle 187 points. Wallis 140, Duffy 44. Morn 36. Cantwell 16. Redmond 2.
Four of the team. Moyle, Wallis. Sullivan and Cantwell, were picked for the S. F. A. L. “All-Star” Team. For St. Ignatius Captain Moyle was easily the most valuable man. always reliable, never failing in a pinch and being practically immune from injuries, though weighing under 135 pounds. Two very important league games, the first against Sacred Heart, the other against Lick, lie won practically single-handed.96
THE IGX ATI AN
But to each and every member of the team, to every “sill)’’ and every “scrub" who helped by turning out to give the boys practice, to A1 Young, our self-sacrificing manager, but most of all to peppery “Bill” Thorpe, who took hold of the squad after the first Sacred Heart contest and taught them many a new trick. ITie Ic.xatiax, in the name of the entire High School, offers its most sincere thanks and heartiest congratulations.
The basketball season was so prolonged this year that it was impossible for Capt. Ed Yarni to get his nine out until almost the end of March. But as soon as he got the chance to give his squad the “once-over" he lost no time in picking a team that made some of the S. F. A. L. prophets look foolish.
St. Ignatius, 5; Lick, 4.
The team played' its first league game against Lick, and as has been the custom for some years past came out on the long end of a 5 to 4 score. It was a good game, featured by “Fat" Varni's hitting, Leo Boyle's pitching and a wonderful “peg" from right field by Jimmy Duffy in the ninth inning that kept the Tigers from tieing the score.
St. Ignatius, 19; High School of Commerce, 6.
In order to tune up his machine for the “Poly" contest, A1 Young arranged a practice game with Commerce, the team which the week before had forced Lowell, the team which eventually won the City honors, to go eleven innings before victory finally rested with the wearers of the Red and White. Naturally we expected a hard game and were agreeably surprised at the way the fellows hit the three Commerce pitchers. We expected Varni to hit, he always does, but who ever dreamed of “Doc" Sullivan'sHIGH SCHOOL ATHLETICS
getting a homer, a triple and two singles in five times at bat? Wallis had his eye on the ball, also, getting a homer and a couple of two-sackers. Rice and Kunst did some clever fielding as well as working two pretty "squeezes.” All in all the boys got plenty of exercise that afternoon, for remember this was a seven inning game. What the score would have been had the contest gone the full limit no one can tell.
Poly, 4; St. Ignatius, 1.
The second S. F. A. L. game against Polytechnic was for the division championship and it was some contest, the score being one up until the eighth inning, when the boys from Sunset put across a run. In the ninth they scored two more, the final score being 4 to 1. Leo Boyle pitched a great game but his support wobbled at critical times. The boys hit well but could not come through in the pinches. Rice at short ami Kunst at third played splendidly; in fact, for a team that was together but a short time and had an inexperienced pitcher and an infield, no two players of which had played together before this year, the showing was very creditable. The personnel of the team:
Catcher. Yarni (Capt); pitcher, Boyle: 1st. Durt'v: 2nd. Coakley (Tovarez); s. s., Rice; 3rd, Kunst: 1. f., Wallis; c. f., Sullivan; r. f., McGuire; substitutes. Cosgrove, O’Connor.
Good old King Baseball need never fear for his throne here at St. Ignatius, even though the sons of America arc fighting “to make the world safe for democracy.” As a proof of his absolute sway over the hearts of the Ignatians, one has but to glance at the Midgets—St. Ignatius’ congest performers on the diamond. Ever since the beginning of the present season, they have been daily clicking them out98
and scooping’ them up, very early rounding into an aggregation of champion ball-tossers. The battery mates, “Iires," Conlan and Tommy Ryan, in keeping the hits scattered and retiring batters by the strike-out route, work together like two vets, while their big sticks have helped many a midget base-runner across the counting-pan. When we say that the infield has all the class in the world, we feel sure that no one will deny the fact, when we point to Captain "I lank" O’Day on first— "Euie” Cullinan on second—"Spider” Kelly on short and good old reliable Frank Cunningham on third. In the outfield we have a trio which gathers in everything that comes its way—"Chesty” Keith, Dave Clancy and liill Hanley. On the utility role we have two men who have more than once proved very valuable in a pinch—George Ghirardelli and then "Don” McQuaid, without whom every team, be it basketball, football, track or baseball, seems incomplete. As a proof of the Midgets’ prowess allow us to submit the casualty list:
Midgets, 12: Sunset Midgets, 8.
Midgets, 6; St. James School, 3.
Midgets, 8; Ramona Club, 5.
Midgets, 9: Laguna Honda School, 2.
Midgets, 14; St. James’ School, 4.
Only once were they taken into cam]), and then to the tune of 5 to 1 by their old transbav rivals. St. Joseph’s Academy. A return game is to be played next week; the Midgets have sworn revenge, they are on their toes awaiting the signal to go "over the top” and bring home the bacon. Let us hope that they will deliver, and thus end the season with a victory, ere they store away their suits with the moth balls, and take to the more serious work of preparing for the exams.‘Tf ie Ignatian stands behind all its advertisers : : :

BECOME A SUPERIOR DANCER!
Style Is of the utmost importance in dancing.
Style is tlie Dance.
Every dancer wishes to appear at his host—and this means that each dancer should develoo an individual stylo of his own.
The best way you can secure real style is by taking lessons from a recognized authority—
—It is more profitable in the long run—you learn much more rapidly and efficiently—it gives you an individual stylo, originality
and real ability—it develops your strong points and strengthens your weak jMtiuts.

THE war lias taken millions of our best workers out of productive activity, and has thus greatly diminished the supply of all necessary commodities. :
The war at the same time has vastly increased the demand on our farms, our factories, our mines, our labor.
Our job, here at home, is to meet the increased demand with the diminished supply.
That can be done in only one way—by saving to the point of. sacrifice.
Go without luxuries, go without comforts, get along with less necessaries, and thus increase the nation’s surplus of supplies needed for victory.
Every ounce of the products of labor, thus saved, counts.
Our men, and our allies, afloat and ashore, are dying willingly for us.
Can’t we make sacrifices willingly for their sake and to win the war?
Lend the money, saved by patriotic renunciation, to the government by investing in thrift stamps.
We must sell $10,000,000 in thrift stamps to 500,000 people in San Francisco during 1918.
Our quota is $20 for each man. woman and child.
Buy your quota, and then triple it to make up for those that fail to do their share.
