Imperceptibly, like ebbing life, the glow assumes the pallid gray of ashes. Yet. let but a breath, or a whisper of the wind fan the embers, and life is rekindled and fila' ments of fire radiate through the ashen pallor. Weary of the welter of the world, at times toe would fain rest and dream by the warmth-fid hearth of memory. Too often the flaming ambitions of youth have consumed to lifeless ashes the radiance of college yesterdays. May then, this book, like the whisper of the wind, fan the smouldering embers and flush with new' born life the faces of pals and teachers and friends May sparkling eyes then outshine the fire s filaments, and cloistered in our hearts, the hit of youthful laughter echo back, the merry crackling of memory’s hearth.In Memoriam -----3J5---- [10][13]I GNAT I AN Rev.

'28 26 Under the guidance of Mr. O'Neill, S. J., the staff has worked well and faithfully to complete an Annual indicative of the things to be expected when Saint Ignatius will have moved to its new Hill'Top home. Aiding and abetting the staff in their Ignatian work the names of Messrs. O'Toole, Egger, O'Meara, and Vacarro should not be overlooked because of their able and willing assistance in “Picture Setting'Up Exer' cises", at the engraver's. The editor voices his appreciation to this combine, and lest words of would'be praise might stilt their future efforts, may this 1927 Ignatian stand as a lasting tribute to their ingenuity and zeal. - ' Moderator Editor ' Associate Editor Business Manager Literary Editor ' Literary Editor ' News Editor - College Athletics ' College Athletics ' ' Alumni High School Athletics High School Notes » ; r 43COLLEGE PAPER Smyth Mc.Quade Lounibos Business Manager Editor Associate Editor The various student bodies of the University this year reverted to a custom of former St. Ignatius generations and undertook the publication of a monthly newspaper. Five issues were published under the temporary title “Ignatian", the editor of the Annual generously allowing the use of the name until such time as the management of the paper could decide on a permanent title. With Raymond T. Feely, S.J., as Moderator, the paper was financed and directed by the joint student bodies of the Arts and Sciences and Law and Commerce departments, and appeared monthly in eight'pagc numbers. It was edited by Edward V. McQuade of Junior and was under the busP ness management of James Smyth, A.B. '27, and James McGettigan, LL.B. '29. As the sheet matured it also developed until at the time of its last appearance it was excellently balanced from the standpoint of news articles and established features. Of these last, the most noteworthy was the “Thinker" column, conducted by William N. Connolly, A.B. 28, in which anything and everything was discussed that might conceivably interest the student mind. The article appearing therein on the “Miracle" play at the time of the Gest trek to San Francisco was hailed even among strangers to St. Ignatius as one of the sanest, fairest, and most unbiased opinions on the subject to appear in the public prints. The sports sections were handled by James K. McGee and Wilson J. O'Brien, both '30. Other active staff members were James Power, Jr., A. B. '27, Ray Sullivan, A. B. 28, Jack Patridge, A. B. '29, Harry Bardt, LL. B. '27, lohn Lounibos, A. B. 26, LL. B. 28, and William A. O'Brien, A. B. '24, LL. B. '26. The staff was encouraged throughout the year by the hearty interest and constructive criticism of Father H. J. Flynn, S. J., Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.GROUND BREAKING AND BUILDING PROGRAM When Father Edward Whelan, S. J., pronounced the Invocation on Sun-day afternoon, September 26 last, at the Ground Breaking Exercises, he commenced the ceremony which marked the realization of a twenty years' dream. These had been long years of endless labor and sacrifice for the Jesuit Fathers, educating and ministering to the youth of the city who came to them, in the mediocre “refugee shacks" erected on Hayes street. San Francisco’s one college which had rested within the boundaries of the "City by the Golden Gate", watching her progress since 1855, was coming into her own—taking her rightful place with the colleges of the Pacific and Eastern States. A new college, complete in every detail, was to crown Ignatian Heights, a fitting complement to the magnificent temple erected and dedicated to the worship of God. Mr. Frank P. Hughes, President of the Alumni Association, fittingly expressed the true joy of all the Alumni upon the achievement of this goal and the brilliant future which appeared in store for their Alma Mater. He held himself highly honored and expressed deep appreciation for being called upon to officiate on this most memorable day in the history of Saint Ignatius. Hon. B. L. McKinley, former U. S. District Attorney and Alumnus, stirred his audience deeply by an eloquent address in which he eulogized the Fathers of St. Ignatius of past years and of the present. Father D. J. Kavanagh, S. J., orator par excellence, delineated on the unsurpassed advantages of a Catholic education, with fiery appeal, and in picturesque diction portrayed a vivid picture of Godless Russia and Mexico, where Religion and Morality are scoffed at, where license, not true liberty, are desired with all the hideous consequences which they imply. Mayor James Rolph, jr., representing the city, congratulated the Faculty and expressed his sincere wish for the success of the campaign. The Mayor turned the first shovelful of earth, drawing the ceremonies to a close. The first unit, the College of Liberal Arts, will contain on its main floor the executive offices, an auditorium of the "Little Theatre" type, several large classrooms, and visiting parlors. Twenty lecture halls and the Students' Chapel will make up the second floor. On the third floor will be found three libraries, a lecture hall for projection work, and a lay teacher's lounge. A spacious students' lounge, offices of the Student Body executives and directors of other activities will occupy the less extensive fourth floor. The Building Program also includes Science laboratories, a Library, College of Law, Stadium, Gymnasium, an independent High School, and other smaller units. It is hoped that the erection of these buildings will follow close on the completion of the College of Liberal Arts.THE PRESS BUREAU ♦% » ...

The Press Bureau, founded last year for the purpose of supplying the newspapers with facts and statistics concerning St. Ignatius activities, was continued this year under the management of William N. Connolly of the Class of '28, and in scope and accomplishment reached proportions undreamed of at the time of its establishment. Not only did Connolly see that the San Francisco dailies were kept well supplied with information about the Gray Fog teams, but by an active correspondence with out'of' town colleges he managed to secure data about visiting teams that others wise the sport sheets would have been unable to get. When the Ignatians were on the road, he preceded their line of travel with stories for the journals of the cities they were to visit. The success of this plan is shown by the fact that fully a fourth of the clippings in the Press Bureau scrap' book are from out'of'town papers. Bill never quite managed to squeeze the scandal stories off the front page, but his collection of news items in' eludes a respectable number of eight'eolumn headlines from both the first main news and the sporting sections. Bill has another year of undergraduate work, and if his Press Bureau jumps ahead in proportion to its progress this last year, it deserves to be re'christened as the Publicity Department.IGNATIANI BLOCK CLUB 1926 OFFICERS Philip Morrissey Walter Nieland Norbert Falvey Harold Meyer President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer 1927 OFFICERS President Vice-President T reasurer - Secretary John Kavanauch Daniel Murphy John Patridce Richard Vacarro 7] IGNATI AN A Shipwreck En Routi THE ALOYSIAN PILGRIMAGE On the last day of 1926, the two hundredth anniversary of the canon' ization of St. Aloysius was celebrated. In honor of the Patron of Youth, Catholic colleges and high schools of every country of the world sent representatives to take part in the special ceremonies held in the Eternal City. Signed pledges of the students to live up to the Aloysian Plan of Life were laid in bound volumes on the tomb of the Saint. The official representative of St. Ignatius College was James G. Smyth, A. B., '27, president of the student body and leader in all student activities. Vincent Casey, H. S., '28, was the choice of the High School, selected for his high scholastic standing, popularity on the campus, and prc'eminence in El Dlce". Benito Mussolini, and Pilgrims r 4s i  I GNAT I AN Ur Pilgrimage Aboard S. S. Roma athletics. Francis Kerner anj Edward Butler of the College, and Charles Paganinni, Louis Ferrari, and Jay McAvoy of the High School accompanied them. Five weeks were spent abroad, during which the pilgrims crossed the Atlantic, sailed to Italy through the Mediterranean, and on the return journey traversed the Continent to Havre. Christmas week was passed in Rome. The delegates were present at a solemn Pontifical Mass on Christmas Day and joined with the thousands of other Catholic youths to do honor to St. Aloysius. Father Gleeson, S. J., headed the Pacific Coast division of the Pilgrim' age. Awaiting the Audience with His Holiness. Pil s XI r 491 THE BLOCK CLUB DANCE The annual dance of the Saint Ignatius Block letter Club was held on Friday evening, November 26th, at the Palace Hotel. It was given in honor of the visiting Loyola football team and came as a fitting climax to one of the biggest weeks in the history of student activities at Saint Igna' tius. The members of both teams were guests of honor and a representative crowd of students, alumni, and friends attended. Excellent cooperation on the part of students and alumni, together with the general enthusiastic spirit which characterized all the activities in connection with the “Big Game", helped to make the affair a social and financial success.' LAW AND COMMERCE FORMAL The fourth annual Law and Commerce Dance was held at the new Hotel Mark Hopkins on the evening of February 12th, and proved to be one of the most distinctive events of the college year. The Law'Commerce Student'body had decreed the affair to be strictly formal and the popularity of their decision was evidenced by an immediate demand for the bids which were sold out in record time. The committee in charge, Messrs. Conrad Hubner, Walter Daly, Romeo Moretti, Francis Dana, Theodore Roche, Jr., and Joseph Bussman are to be congratulated for the excellent manner in which every detail of the dance was handled. The invitations and pro grams were in excellent taste, and the music “just right."ORATORICAL CONTEST Smyth Laydex Haley Jesuit Education plus native Celtic eloquence is a neverdailing formula for real oratory. The Annual Contest, staged at Knights of Columbus Hall on Friday evening, November 12, measured up and more to the traditions of St. Ignatius. The competition in the try-outs presented such a wealth of material that Freshmen were barred from the competition. Mr. James Smyth, A. B., '27, President of the Student'body of the Cob lege of Arts and Sciences, eulogizing, “El Duce Benito Mussolini" was finally declared winner. Smyth was closely pressed by his classmate, Harold Haley, who por trayed in vivid vigorous language the unhappy plight of our neighbor, Mexico. Haley's oration was of such high calibre, even from a literary standpoint, that the staff of “The Ignatian" has decided to incorporate it in the Annual. James Layden, a precocious sophomore, also came in for honorary men' tion. The efforts of the other tyroorators reflected upon themselves and their institution welbmerited praise. If any of “the field" is to be singled out, Edward McQuade would perhaps be the popular choice for the “Meckenesque turn'" which characterizes all the efforts of this member of the Junior class, assures him always an attentive audience. Mr. Raymond Sullivan, '28, last year's medal winner, acted as Chairman of the evening. Three members of the Alumni Association, in former times prominent in forensics, served as Judges: Messrs. Robert Rossi, Joseph L. Sweeney, and Charles Wiseman.ORATORICAL CONTEST BOLSHEVISM TRANSPLANTED By Harold J. Haley, '27 Half a century ago the curtain fell on one scene of a world-old drama. It had for its background Germany; the action centered about Bismark, the head of the cast in his "Kulturkampf." A few decades elapse and a second scene bespeaks France, with Briand, Millerand and Viviani playing the lead' ing roles in the presentation, “Anti'Clericalism", in which the last named principal uttered these defiant words: “We have extinguished in the firmament, lights which shall never be rekindled." As these passed into history, the audience, a world, shuddered and hoped it would be witness to no more. Time in its flight has sent the years to join their brothers, and now the play goes on. The scene shifts, the stage, Mexico; the scintillating star, Calles, in Mexico’s "Rule of the Proletariat." We are a part of the world' wide audience and we must watch the drama in its development. Blazing forth with an age'old principle, yet never failing in its aptitude to seize popular favor, the wily Calles backed by a black crew of rabid bolshe' vists, has prosecuted an unrelenting crusade, primarily against the Catholic Church. The principle you all know well, and simply stated is the sepanv tion of Church and State. I have said that it never failed in its appeal, and as long as Calles and his spokesmen dwelt on their contention that such was the ultimate end of the struggle they were well received, particularly here in the United States. But slowly, yet unmistakably, the hoarse cry of persecution became in' creasingly audible in a swelling undercurrent. The great mass of Ameri' cans doubted. Theirs was a question which clamored loudly for answer. How, they queried, if Mexico is so predominantly Catholic, has it come to pass that the Church is thus persecuted? Pause with me for a moment and consider the illegal constitution of a tyrannical dictator, framed by a group of unauthorized anti'Catholic revolu' tionists; not in the slightest degree submitted to the nation for approval; nurtured, preserved, and enforced by a chief executive, who, by that very constitution was explicitly precluded from the presidential office, having participated in the overthrow of a government; empowered by a Congress not freely chosen, and subverting the principles of the very constitution to which it owed its existence! The so'called “first labor President on this American continent" an' nounces that the dispositions of his government not only “do not hinder, but Vt do not even limit religious preaching within the Churches”, and that “no such disposition impedes or makes difficult the administration of the sacra' ments.” This is satanic humor at its best. Scrutinize the document and behold the hideous thing it tries to conceal. Mexico's constitution denies to any but nativc'born Mexicans the right to exercise the ministry of any worship: forbids monastic life; prescribes that all religious acts of public worship be in public edifices under governmental supervision: declares marriage merely a civil contract; regulates the number of clergy in a locality and then denies them the right to vote or hold office! Added to this, as though their cup of hate were not filled to overflowing, they provide that Churches designed for worship and other buildings shall be the property of the nation—without provision for compensation, and then deny to religious periodicals the right to comment on political affairs—, deny the establishment of primary schools, convents or nunneries. Imagine, if you can, the inexplicable feeling of horror that would be yours were you to be deprived of the Sacraments; picture yourselves at the threshold of the holy state of matrimony with no other sanction than that of the civil authorities; experience the deep sorrow of the passing of a loved one intensified by the absence of the priest to administer the Sacraments of the dying; think of yourselves accused of the violation of any of these provi' sions, arbitrarily sentenced without trial by jury, severely punished and then forbidden to criticize your prosecutors! But Calles arrogantly con' tends that religious liberty is not hampered, nor even limited; that the in' alienable rights of man are as inviolate as ever they were; that there is but a peaceful separation of Church and State! There is a further element that presses itself before us—the character' istics of the Mexican people. They are patient, docile, long'suffering, reputedly unmoved by the defamation and persecution of their Faith and Church, where you and others would be violently up in arms. Easily vie' timized by the political schemer, the autocrat and so'called reformer—their tempting bait of apparent beneficence momentarily dazzles them. On the wave of revolution the demagogue rides to power. The Catholic sees his error, but it is too late—the odds are against him, he is defeated—his hopes shattered—his ideals maligned—his Church persecuted. The query is answered, and we pass on to consider another state of the American mind caused by the ingenious charge hurled by the Mexican officials, viz.: that the Church is responsible for the illiteracy of the populace. The accusation has for its foundation misrepresentation, and its comrade in arms—malicious propaganda! What has the Church done for education V.'V V.- v;VW trt ’l 'V ', A-, . . 4 1 Jin Mexico? Everything that could be done, till its hands were shackled and its voice gagged by the iron grip of revolution. Read the glowing accounts of the early Mexican historians recording the golden era of education in their native land; how the early friars with dauntless spirit, heroic courage, and zealous fervor undertook to civilize the Indians—a tremendously diflv cult task because the means were entirely disproportionate to the end. Con' fronted not with the education of the children as they arrived successively at the proper age, as in our day, but with an entire and numerous genera' tion, old and young, men and women, who, all at once were in urgent need of religious and civil instruction from the very foundations, and without knowing even the language of their teachers. How in less than two cen' turies, the entire aboriginal population from New Mexico to Guatemala was completely civilized; how the Franciscans, Dominicans, Jesuits, and secular priests learned the native tongues and wrote books in these languages with which to tame the savagery of the Indians. Learn that each little church, each monastery had its school in which the children were gathered to receive their training; that with the increased number of teachers there came the foundation of secondary schools and colleges of higher learning where Latin, Philosophy, Theology, Law, and the Natural Sciences were inculcated by teachers whose knowledge was rivalled only by that of the most learned men of Spain, France, and Italy. See how the Indian of Mexico was educated to become a leader in the Arts and Sciences; how her universities were meccas for scholars in a host of scientific and intellectual pursuits and that throughout these happy years Catholic Mexico basked in the sun of a reputation for popular education hardly surpassed in the liter' ary and scientific world. But impending disaster loomed on that fair horizon. “Liberalism", like a black fog, affording a fitting cloak for rankling jealousy, slowly settled over the land like night, shutting out the life-giving beams of that sun first here—now there—chilling, as with icy hand, everything it had contact with, until at length it obscured and deadened this noble, praiseworthy work, from 1767, intermittently, to our own time. To Calles and his predecessors, a motely crew of destructionists may in all fairness and justice be attributed the illiteracy of the Mexican populace today. This diabolical and ruinous legislation has been sought to be justified by the cry that the “Church in Mexico is Wealthy"—leading one to believe that it was powerful, autocratic, terrorized its followers and controlled the government! What an indictment of one whose only offense has been the dispensing of knowledge, solace, and encouragement! (Continued on Page 184)DEBATES Sullivan Haley McQuade UNIVERSITY OF IDAHO DEBATE Two no'decision debates were participated in by the college debaters during the spring semester, one of which we would have undoubtedly won had judges been there to award the decision. There is no narrow pro vincialism in this opinion, for in the debate with the University of Idaho, held in Santa Maria Hall. Knights of Columbus Building, on Monday evening, February 28, Raymond L. Sullivan and Edward V. McQuade, the St. Ignatius team, cleanly outshone in argument and rhetoric the Idaho rep' resentatives, Messrs. Simmons and Montgomery. The sincerity which was evident in the speeches of the St. Ignatius de' baters can be accounted for by the personal interest which both men at' tached to the proposition: “Resolved, That a Federal Department of Edu' cation should be established in charge of all primary and secondary educa' tion in the United States.” LOYOLA COLLEGE DEBATE The antithetical but highly effective Sullivan'McQuade combination was augmented by Harold J. Haley for the debate with Loyola College at Los Angeles in the Knights of Columbus Hall of that city on Friday eve' ning, April 8. This, too, was a no'decision debate, and having the state' ments of the participants as the only source of information, we are not able to give an unbiased opinion as to the outcome if judges were present. The question, “Resolved, That Mussolini is a benefactor to Italy” was a live issue, and evoked pertinent remarks from the Ignatian trio who spoke “in defense” of the dictator.IGNATIAN DEBATES Murphy Devine MONTANA DEBATE The main hall of the Knights of Columbus building comfortably filled for an intercollegiate debate is a not t x common occurrence, but such was the size of the audience that was on hand for the St. Ignatius College' University of Montana debate on Monday evening, March 28. A happy combination of attractive proposition, “Resolved: That the eighteenth amendment to the Constitution of the United States be repealed", and entertaining speakers, Mr. Edward Murphy and Mr. Preston Devine, served to make this the most successful debate in St. Ignatius' recent history. Mr. Murphy, speaking for the abolition of the amendment, stressed the point that the prohibition law was contrary to right principles of govern ment and rarely descended to a treatment of the facts of the issue. Mr. Devine, however, covered this ground comprehensively, according to the prearranged plan of the team. Montana reversed the order used by St. Ignatius. Mr. Arthur Acher, first speaker of the negative, bolstered the eighteenth amendment with statistics and statements by authorities. What ethical and philosophical arguments could be summoned in defense of the measure were ably ad' vanced by Mr. Louis Aronowsky, second Montana speaker, who made a strong case out of the limited facts at his disposal. It was the plea of Mr. Aronowsky that complicated matters for the judges, Honorable Walter Perry Johnson, Mr. R. Bronson and Mr. M. Doyle. Before bringing in a decision favorable to St. Ignatius, these gentle' men engaged in an unusually lengthy conference, indicating that the merits of the teams were more equal than the audience supposed. k [ 7]IGNATIAN KAPPA LAMBDA SIGMA Black CONNOLLHY Haley Hubner Mr. Feely. S. J Ruddek Smyth Collins Collioan Layden SullivanKAPPA LAMBDA SIGMA Spirited but genial controversy has been and continues to be the fruitful mother of literary and scientific productions of lofty character. The seminars of old find worthy counterparts in the academies, fraternities and societies of today which in purpose range from the consideration of matters practical and of immediate concern to those experimental and cultural. To the group which engages itself with subjects literary, belongs the Kappa Lambda Sigma, the Literary Honor Society of St. Ignatius College, founded in December, 1926. Under the solicitous patronage of Rev. H. J. Flynn, S.J., Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, this society had its inception and under the guidance of Mr. Raymond Feely, S.J., has grown in membership and moment in the literary affairs of the College. The end and aim of the Society as explicitly set forth in its constitution is to foster the study and thorough treatment of the outstanding figures in modern thought and literature; to convene in private symposia at regular intervals and to hold open forums on current topics of interest to the in' tellectual life of San Francisco. Membership is restricted to men enrolled in the College of Liberal Arts. As is characteristic of all such associations, it is essential that the nominee have and maintain first class standing in English and kindred subjects. The nomination must come from a member, and after appropriate consid' eration of the Society and action by the Faculty, the nominee is voted upon. At the outset the participants were drawn from the three classes, Senior, Junior and Sophomore, but it is anticipated that the advance of the Society and the growth of the College will necessitate a restriction to men in Junior and Senior years. The Kappa Lambda Sigma made its first excursion into public life in the open forum on “The Miracle.” It will be recalled that the Gest' Reinhardt spectacle had roused unprecedented comment with interest keyed to a high pitch in Catholic circles. The reception accorded this endeavor was most encouraging and gratifying. To a capacity audience manuscripts were read for and against, by Andrew Black, Ed. McQuade, Wm. Connelly and Harold Haley. A splendidly written article was sub' mitted by an alumnus and read by Raymond Sullivan. The discussion was then given over to the house and numerous members of the audience voiced their views. The many expressions of approval and commendation have spurred the members to greater efforts and the planning of more meetings of this character. In the private discussions of the Society such eminent authors and their works as Geo. Bernard Shaw, Gilbert K. Chesterton and Joyce Kilmer have been treated, while articles on other outstanding literary figures as H. G. Wells, Eugene O'Neill, and Jos. Conrad are in course of preparation.BOX OFFICE STUFF By Edward V. McQuade, '28 “What's wrong with the movies "? The burning critical controversy of a not'so distant day, has of recent years been as little in evidence as the question of woman suffrage. To be sure, one may still find, in those maga' zines which breed their circulation from the business and gossip of the studio, departments devoted to the eminent opinions of sundry print' hungry amateurs; but among columnists and critics whose pronouncements hold any weight at all, the subject now appears to be anathematized. The probable reason for their indifference is that this gentry looked upon the issue as hopeless; their perorations on the matter seemed to imply the tacit judgment that everything is wrong with the movies. From a logical standpoint, that decision is execrable. Opinions on a “what's wrong" discussion are valueless unless there is offered a solution of the problem or a cure for the existing evil. In this case, the end desired was some inoculation that would rid the motion picture of the moron virus, but the critics who suggested such remedies were surprisingly few. Most of them devoted themselves to sweeping condemnation, and such stuff, especially in controversy, always contains a note of bafflement. The more sincere of the diagnosticians, agreeing that the screen is falling far short of its artistic potentialities, argued that the guilt could ultimately be traced to either of these sources; either the producer underestimates the intelligence of his audiences, or he does not, and consequently the film devotee is deserving of no more profound fare than he gets. Both the aforementioned gentlemen merit castigation, but neither is the sole culprit. They are two of a triumvirate, and the third accessory is the middleman, or exhibitor. The producer may or may not wish to get away from the idiotic horseplay which has been his pastime for so long, and turn out something at least faintly suggestive of sense, but the exhibitor throttles him. That worthy has discovered that the old formula is still palatable to his clientele, that they still relish being regaled by the output of the bedroom and bathroom kings, still guffaw uproariously at the ancient slapstick, so he gives it to them. Even though he has seen them to be genuinely appreciative of the rare masterpieces of the studio, he is loath to attribute the phenomenon to the horse'sense of the audience. Rather he feels that the picture in question, besides embodying an intelligent principle, was fortunate enough also to possess the saving grace of imbecilic appeal. The box'offke is the exhibitor's barometer of the merits or demerits of a production, and he dreads abandoning the perennially satisfying rote forsomething which he thinks is fraught with peril to his economic well-being. He is in very much the same position as the purveyor of staple groceries who fears to sing his swan song to Sapolio in favor of a more aesthetic product. The fan himself is by no means entirely blameless. His occasional glimpses of the Promised Land may have whetted his appetite but he is unwilling to adopt the drastic measures necessary to make that Promised Land his permanent abode. He knows that the intellectual strata regards him as a benighted lack-wit who thinks of the Sunny South in terms of horse races and reminiscent colonels, thinks the big cities are the creations of the devil, and regards the Canadian Northwest as the habitat of hairy-chested people who never miss their man. He knows all this, and knows that in the cases cited his credulity is being woefully abused, but to campaign against such impositions would mean curtailing his periodic entertainment, since the boycott is the only weapon calculated sharp enough to pierce the exhibitor's horny hide. The movie fan is somewhat akin to Mr. Babbitt, who reads the Lewis novel and is forced to titter at the truth of the reflection, but who yet refuses to renounce his intellectual vice because it is comfortable, rather conducive to social well-being, and because an abandonment of Babbittry would necessitate too revolutionary a change in his habits. So with your incurable movie frequenter. His screen entertainment is as much a part of his life as is his Sunday dinner. If he doesn't give up his Sunday dinner just because his butcher might send him a better roast, why should he stay away from the film palace merely because he knows his entertainment might conceivably be more flattering to his taste? The exhibitors are deserving of the most sound larruping. As men whose livelihood depends on their keeping in touch with the public, they show a most lamentably perverted opinion of the community intelligence. Witness these excerpts from the “Exhibitor's Herald", the Alpha and Omega of all good box-office custodians. This following from one worthy who manages a provincial house devoted to the art: “The Black Pirate" —50 per cent—“Lay off this baby. All there is to it is a lot of color and an old ship. Had I run it four nights instead of three I would have showed to ushers only.” Note that this production was one of those generally accepted as best realizing the peculiar adaptabilities of the motion picture—great pictorial beauty and a story told almost wholly in pantomime. And thus from another suburban high light of the industry: “Hero of the Big Snows”—50 per cent—“This is a rotten picture. Not fit to play, even if it is a dog picture." The first part of this criticism may not be as open to debate as the first example quoted, but manifestly the aggrieved one wishes us to infer that the motion picture public has an attachment for canine biographies scenically told.These incidents, of course, only add strength to the often'voiced state' ment that the motion picture depends too much on box-office appeal ever to rise to real artistic heights. Certainly the movie is a hybrid thing, half art, half industry, and the two natures are so unevenly supported that it seems the commercial end nearly invariably wins out. There was an age of movie'Censure, just as there is now an age of Babbitt-baiting, but it served no practical purpose. The satire of “Merton of the Movies”, and others like it, delighted their readers, but as far as bringing about a metamornhosis in the operations of the people it satirized, it was as useless as “Main Street” and “Babbitt.” Such spectacles are always amusing to the man looking on, but Babbitt and some of the people characterized in “Merton” chuckle just as appreciatively at their own caricatures. They chuckle, and pass on unruffled. It is pitiful. It has been hinted that the movies make a mistake in not remaining in the field of artistic representation for which they are obviously best fitted; that of action on a wide scale, or of simple stories told in pantomime. The error of trying to reproduce such stage classics as “What Price Glory” on the screen is manifest. Those who witnessed the stage production will remember the throbbing undercurrent of cynicism that permeated the entire performance, and the bitter resignation of the soldier's philosophy, as ex-pressed by the winning Captain Flagg in the last act. In the movie the story degenerated into a low comedy lowly portrayed, with the virility of the original contorted into a strange mess of rather unsavory license. Some of the characters were fairly well acted, but on the whole the pro-duction fell immeasurably far below the standard of the stage play. So the movie should embrace original stories exclusively. But here again the box office intrudes. If the natives in the outskirts get wind of a spectacular play which is trodding the boards in some large city, they set up a cry to heaven. The exhibitors and producers intercept the shriek before it gets very far, and before long we have for our consumption a typical movie adaptation, conformed very noticeably to the yokel mind. Another impassable obstacle. The answer to the plea given vent to at the beginning of this article, depends, undeniably, on the action of the triumvirate. The moviegoer must first wax indignant, threaten dire vengeance on the box-office receipts of his exhibitor, and use every other available means to bring that addled promoter to his senses. The producer will then hear from the exhibitor, and perhaps then the directorial board of strategy will be mightier than the box-office. But until then we must bear patiently the machinations of pernicious Lotharios amid guileless country maidens, the uncompromising righteousness of the legions of “strong, silent, men”, and the desert maneuvers of well-barbcred and soulful Sheiks.IGNATIAN THE EVOLUTION OF THE FUNNY PAPER By William Connolly, '28 Among the literature to come out of the World War was the New Standard Dictionary and Gazetteer of the World, containing much indiV pensable information on coinage, weights and measures, poisons and their antidotes, faulty diction, foreign words and phrases, and the population of the principal cities of the United States, including insular possessions. Bibliophiles treasuring ancestral dictionaries were advised by advertisements to discard the ponderous tome and replace it with the new edition, printed on India paper and surpassing all previous lexicographical efforts in that it contained such truly modern terms as camouflage, Boche, escadrille, No Man’s Lind, and poilu. There were two more words which escape memory at this writing. Furthering the movement to make the dictionary the best seller is the practice of bedizening lowly professions and institutions in natty nomen' clature. Thus, bakers who formerly served coffee in their shops have discarded the thick-lipped china, moved upstairs to a loft with limited space and less atmosphere, placed incense in efficacious corners and meta-morphosed their buxom wives into tearoom hostesses. Undertakers not to be outdone in euphemism, solicit family trade as morticians. In vaude-ville, clog dancers, oboe players and masters of ceremonies at pony acts assume the high estate of “artists.” The man who is hired to excavate the basement to make room for the family coupe is an entrepeneur whether he knows it or not. But the most revolting perversion of language yet perpetrated is the ex' altation of “funny paper” to “comic section.” Someone will suffer for that. Fancy fouryearold Willis lisping of a Sunday morning over his flowing lacteal bowl: “Ma, read me the comic section.” “Funny paper” still has its stronghold behind the slats of the crib, for the very young gen' eration clings to the old order of things. However, not infrequently some precocious child lets loose a slip of the tongue after failing to find the multi' colored section among the voluminous Sunday edition, saying: “I say, mater, what did you do with the comic section?” Naive adults know it as the funny paper even in this advanced age, although there are many, mostly of that class which is to be found invariably in the vanguard of every in' tellectual revolt, who confess familiarity with the “comic section.” Yet there is some grounds for the desertion of the term “funny paper.” “Funny” is no longer an apt adjective in the compound “funny paper.” If by funny is meant ludicrous, then the funny paper is no longer funny. Substituting comic for funny will work no improvement, for if comic is intended to be a Latin form of funny, then the comic section is no longer comic. Like the comedies of the early moving picture days, the funny paper was designed for the children and the childlike. “Foxy Grandpa", “Happy Hooligan", ‘The Katzenjaminers", “Buster Brown" and others were all calculated to entertain the offspring while the parent perused the magazine under the pretext of posting himself on current events. The characters were children, as the Katzenjammer Kids and Buster Brown, or grown-ups whose antics imparted glee to children, as Foxy Grandpa and Happy Hooli' gan. Adults read the funny paper when only besought by illiterate in' fants. In that day parents were afforded invaluable practice in elocution by reading aloud, with proper modulation of the voice and apposite gestures, the succinct lines put into the mouths of funny paper characters. It was the inexorable Sunday morning ritual from which no parent could escape with' out evoking a flood of convulsive tears from the expectant offspring. Not all of those pioneers in child amusement are extant. “Mutt and Jeff" and “Bringing Up Father" are veterans who still are with us ah though there is no apparent reason why the former should exhibit such longevity. “The Katzenjammers", both the original and the counterfeit, have clung to their laudable purpose, to amuse children, and they are unique in this. Within the last five years radical changes have rocked the foun' dations of this phase of graphic art, with the result that funny papers are now designed for the adult reader. The children, bereft of the page originated for them, are expected to find solace in the columns conducted by good, kind Aunt Dolly. It takes a mighty sophisticated child to read with appreciation the funny paper of today. Where the characters of the old were clownish and up' roarious, the men, women and race horses depicted on the rear page of the sport section are polished and socially subtle. The bungling good nature of a Happy Hooligan has been superseded by the tempered cynicism with which Sidney Smith, for example, looks on the head of the house through the eyes of Andy Gump. Andy Gump, Joe, of Mr. and Mrs., George Bungle, Pa Perkins, Rudy Nebbs and Cicero Sapp are “just like a man”, especially the middle'aged bread'waster of the average American fighting unit. It is the cherished objective of the cartoonists who have created these characters to make them as foolish as possible while keeping within the bounds of experience, a failing responsible for the demise of the early car' toon strips. Sidney Smith never shows the slightest kindness towards Andy Gump, nor does Briggs ever attempt to make Joe the intellectual superior of Vi. Smith and Briggs malevolently hold up Andy's and Joe's respective foibles to the derision of the American public after the manner of the kids on the block who tease the myoptic youngster who is lookingat the world through tortoise-shell glasses or who is wearing the unwelcomed heritage of a big brother's coat. We smirk at the plight of George Bungle with inexplicable misgivings for we know that every apartment house has its quota of George Bungles. Fathers reading Andy Gump are a bit uneasy, knowing that at some time or other they have had escapades comparable to those of the man with the aggressive chin. The daily comic strips rather than the full-page Sunday section are indicative of the trend of the modern funny paper. Thus, Chester Gump plays an obscure juvenile lead in the daily strip, but on Sundays he usually essays the leading role in Smith's illustrated Arabian Nights. During the week, Gasoline Alley is mainly devoted to the amours of svelte Walt, but on Sundays Skeezix holds the boards to the delight of Artist King's juvenile clientele. If you indulge in the funny paper only on Sundays you will fail to detect new note in comics. Three distinct types of comic strips have arisen where one, the strictly juvenile, grew before. The strictly juvenile, as exemplified by the Katzen-jammers, is still to be seen although it has been relegated to a position of minor importance. Then there is the juvenile strip which has an attraction for adults as well as for children. Percy Crosby's “Skippy", Tom McNamara's “Us Boys", Gene Carr's “Lady Bountiful" and Dwig's “School Days" are of this type. The obvious antics of these child characters score with the children, while the humor and sometimes the pathos pass on for adult consumption. In the third class are to be found the most representative characters of modern comics. Here are the Bungles, Gumps, Mr. and Mrs., The Nebbs, Moon Mullins, Tillie the Toiler, Gus and Gussie, Married Life, and the week day Gasoline Alley. In these comics no provision is made for child readers, the cartoonists aiming only to satirize the home life and homely wife of the fathers of this country. Strips like Gus and Gussie, and Moon Mullins, are not satirical and they are included in this third class only because they have little appeal for children. Both of these strips rely on wise-cracking palaver rather than on situations which bring out the true-to-life traits of their subjects. Jack Lait, Sol Hess, Bill Counselman and Ring Lardner can draw nothing but a staggering pay check but they are happily infested with ideas. Cartoonists are hired to illustrate the notions of the above quartet just as a stenographer records the gutturals of the hay-wired business man. Even Will Durant has his private cartoonist to delineate the deep brows of the men of his realm and we can thank Will that Plato has taken his place with the immortal Barney Google and Kant's categories can be found within a few column inches of “Ain't It a Grand and Glorious Feeling? Ta-yah-ta-yah-ta-yah."THE TWO DOLLAR DIME NOVEL By Edward V. McQuade, '28 It is the custom among grown men, when the haylofts and the cornsilk cigarettes of their youth are mentioned, to wax sentimental and indulge in all sorts of tender reminiscences. The subjects of the first cigar and the first best girl are rehashed and chuckled over, as are the first long pants and the old swimming hole; but the discussion of these things is always permeated and colored by another ingredient—the dime novel. To hear the talk of the boys whose hair is beginning to grow thin, the youth of today is being hornswoggled, consciously or unconsciously, out of one of the prime essentials of an ideal boyhood, viz., the campaigns of Nick Carter, the beguiling villainies of Gyp the Blood, and the adventures of the other heroes of the old-time paper-backed circulating library. It is maintained that the 1927 reincarnation of Tom Sawyer loses fully 50 per cent of the joys of his earlier self by being deprived of this accessory, and the Old Guard point with horror to the most up-to-date boyhood classic, Booth Tarkington's “Penrod", in which the 20th century youngster is pictured, they say, as being forced to concoct synthetic thrills by writing his own dime novel! Heartily they clap one another on the back and congratulate themselves upon having spent their youth in the age they did. All this pathetic nonsense is, of course, lost in a glare of Kleig lights. The five-reel saga of the West, which is now within the reach of every boy whose assets total ten cents or more, is gorier, punchier, and more teeming with soul-satisfying combat than any three of Nicholas' tricks. It anything, the modern mode of thrill communication is even more effective than the old, for it requires only the barest rudimentary knowledge to comprehend it; it is unhampered by subtlety of any sort, not even the unintentional variety which sometimes crept into the New Medal library. The villain is spotted the moment he stalks on the screen, and the time may be calculated almost to a mathematical nicety, when hand-in-hand the leading lady and the hero will face the dawn of a new life together. This is child's play, and the children recognize it for their own almost as quickly as their elders. The ancient dime novel plot, with all its gaucheries and ten, twenty, thirty, trimmings, has been usurped by the silver sheet, and is being generated in a quantity which would put to shame even the prolific pen of Bertha M. So in this case, at least, that contingent of irreconciliables who are forevermore harping on the "gcx)d old days" need look no further than the neighborhood movie house for a thorough refutation. And to digress for a moment, we wish these mourners of the former beatific state would hush up; the only time they ever get a sympathetic ear is when they touch upon the subject of swinging doors.But reminiscent gentlemen to the contrary, the dime novel is still with us, and it has kept pace with the times. It no longer flaunts itself in brilliantly emblazoned paper covers, and its title no longer betrays the quality of the matter contained within, but it is a dime novel, to use the phrase in a broadly descriptive sense, nevertheless. It is now accorded quite respectable recognition in the literary supplements; the laudatory quotations decorating its jacket often issue from the best critical pens in the country; it is bound in the best of taste and sells for two dollars (sometimes two dollars and a half); and these are undoubtedly the decoys that have led people to mistake it for other than it is. Pirates and highwaymen and other such romantic folk are no longer considered fit creatures for its treatment, as their possibilities have been very nearly exhausted by the motion picture, but the college youth and the decadent society set and other imaginary social problems of the day, are painted in colors flaming and bizarre. The commercial success of these books has been so regular and enduring that it is divisible into little epochs of its own. At the moment we recall the “Sheik", instantly followed by a host of other oasis narratives; “Flaming Youth", which headed another lurid parade, and numberless others of the same brand. Today the market is flooded with them. We noticed one florid advertisement describing a book as “the career of a young man who wandered his gallant way to Europe and the Riviera and back again to Newport before qualifying for his degree of Bachelor of Leisure." Such an endorsement is invaluable. The potentialities of the Riviera and of Newport in the matter of engrossing and socially elect amours are enormous, and that is the tone found most profitable by the potboilers. A survey of the bookshops will disclose an amazing amount of this kind of uplifting literature. There are stories of reckless collegians written by young, frighteneddooking men in hornrimmed glasses; there are stories of the conflict between brute masculinity and fragile hot'house flowers written by young ladies with a wild look in their eyes, and there are countless mystery novels. Probably the condition is irremediable, but as an example of what new clothes can do for an old dime novel it is unbeatable. A good blood'and' thunderer was undoubtedly a splendid tonic for the youth of several decades ago, but today that same blood'and'thunderer has degenerated into a quack and is draining his patrons of a large degree of both their intellectual and moral health. When vice is portrayed vigorously and with evident literary skill, when it is plainly an attempt to reproduce life as is, it may be con demnable, but as hammered out by the venal hacks of today it is only disgusting. And when it asks and gets two dollars a volume, it becomes sickening.SHORT CUTS TO CULTURE By Edward V. McQuade, '28 The defenders of the literary taste of the American reading public seem to be tremendously elated because a Story of Philosophy recently outsold Elinor Glyn, and an Outline of Literature actually deigned to accept a seat among the ten best sellers. The motive actuating such enthusiastic fellows is to be commended, for by the bookshop returns on the sale of such volumes, they are eager to conclude that the national discernment in such matters is at last struggling above the Bertha Clay level. They vision the peruser of the '‘Confession” magazines forsaking his vice for a plunge into Aristotle; they see Shakespeare going to bat for College Humor, and they dream even of barber shop forums wherein the soulful strain in Browning will eventually oust the imbecilities of the State legislatures as the theme of conversation. This, of course, is the most sinful optimism. Such a progression, if devoid of the more insane aspects, would indeed be blessed; but it has yet to come to pass. The Story of Philosophy and the Outline of Literature, like their predecessor, the Outline of History, smashed sales records not because the bookworms of the republic were inordinately desirous of real erudition, but because they thought they saw an opportunity of gulping down something which would supply them with an easily digested smarter ing of such culture. At bottom their intention was no more noble than that of the buffoon who crams up on funny stories before going to a party. In this, as in many other things, the superficial satisfied them; they wanted only a sham, and were content when they got it. The reputedly high esteem in which they held culture was regulated very appreciably by the facility with which it might be acquired. Even the hardiest protagonist of the commonwealth's hunger for learning will hesitate to assert the con' trary. If the works in question had consumed ten volumes in the telling, we venture to wager that they would have raked in less royalties than would the compiled sermons of Billy Sunday. In brief, the vast majority of the readers of these books disregarded entirely the ends for which they were created, and employed them as handy compendiums of intellectual parlor tricks. We are not essaying a blasting of the personal merits of either writer. Mr. Drinkwater's work, published in three volumes, is a wholly admirable outline. It touches all the high points in the history of literature, takes time out for some excellent side comment, and as a guide to an intelligent and extensive reading program it is invaluable. But do the preponderance of its readers use it as such? We swear not. Most of them will never even handle one of the classics referred to by the author, but whateversynopses are conveniently offered they will do their best to store away for future use in a pinch. They cheat. What should be a sincere work of years they pervert to a sort of glorified question box. They are not even genuine dilettantes and they pose as connoisseurs. The same holds true for Professor Will Durant's Story of Philosophy, although in his case we are more reserved in the manner of literary com-mendation. The fact that this author, in a work ostensibly calculated to be a comprehensive running account of the various philosophical systems of all time, shamelessly omitted all mention of one of the most significant periods in the history of the science, the scholastic period, affords us just critical grounds for our disrelish. Mr. Durant's highly press-agented opus, far from being a story of philosophy, is really but a story of some philosophers. It is, of course, fortunate for the worthy professor and his publishers that the acumen of the bulk of his satellites is either too stunted or too oblique to search out this fact. All the philosophy in the world's history within the covers of one tome, was for them, too heaven-sent a thing to pass up. With well-oiled gullibility they despatched the entire mess, passed the good word to their friends, and the result is a flock of misinformed and misinforming philosophical playboys spouting all over the land of the free. Mr. Durant's name in the table of contents is now worth as much as, and perhaps more, than that of Rupert Hughes. At that, they have something in common, for both are complete masters of the art of giving the impression of profundity where there are really nothing more than well-caked argumenta ad ignorantiam. It will be recalled that the now almost classic work of H. G. Wells, at the time of its appearance, caused even a bigger stir at the crossroads than the two aforementioned. The gifted Briton's prodigious mental strides, sometimes covering several thousand years in a single paragraph, were just the dish for the groping intellectuals. The laborious method of cool logic would in all probability have stifled them, but the splendid romancing of the Outline fascinated and intrigued them. To them it was an exalted historical novel, but withal containing a measure of scholarly sanction equal to that of even the driest textbook. The fact that Mr. Wells' book was sold to a syndicate of newspapers and appeared daily on Page one, second main news, should not be ignored. In a way, it is as pertinent and ironic a commentary on the merit of his work as the appearance of Mr. Durant’s in cartoon form is on his. Frankly, then, in this temporary craze for the supposedly highbrow, we see nothing encouraging. We see only that to the present shortcomings of the American critique there has been superadded an element of cheapness that is immeasurably more contemptible than all its pristine stodginess. The citizens now take as great pains to find a short cut to culture as they do to find the long way to church. 6v 1 ' Alumni — + [71 }Knights O'Brien Daly President Secretary Vice-President OFFICERS, ALUMNI ASSOCIATION Charles P.

Treasurer Thomas P. Flaherty, S.J. . . Moderator FRANK HUGHES, '83 “Crescat eundo", “we shall increase as we go on.'' It was the then President of St. Ignatius College, Rev. Pius L. Moore, S.J., addressing the students, past and present, at the first joint smoker and rally held over three years ago. The audience caught the allusion, but did not then appreciate the pertinence of Father Moore's remarks to the situation of the alumni. That was because they had not reckoned in their calculations the new President of the Alumni Association, Mr. Frank P. Hughes, '83. Since then, however, Frank Hughes has been reckoned with, because the reckon' ing was inescapable. From a little group of about fifty who gathered once a year around an abbreviated banquet board, the Alumni Association of St. Ignatius College has grown into an organized active body of over eight hun' dred members. Verily, “we shall increase as we go on." There are many reasons for the awakening of that great body of old boys who have passed beyond the academic pale, but the one big reason without which all others are insufficient, is Mr. Frank P. Hughes. Space does not permit, nor will it ever be completely known, what the service of Mr. Hughes has been to the alumni, but the net result is acutely obvious—the Alumni Association is an organized, growing, active body, and St. Ig' natius is a solvent institution. Against the wishes of the Executive Committee, and the alumni at large, Mr. Hughes is now retired from office. He is succeeded, however, by one worthy of the best traditions of the alumni, Mr. Charles P. Knights, '13, and though officially retired is still giving unstintingly of his time, talent, and experience to the Association of which he may most properly be called “The Father." To Frank P. Hughes, '83, the Faculty, Alumni, and Student'body, with deepest appreciation, offer their sincerest tribute of thanks. ANNUAL BANQUET “The greatest ever", favorite boob bait of the press agent, has been so completely appropriated by the chronicler of college affairs as to be worn to the dullness of dreary platitude. But the Annual Alumni Banquet was just that—“the greatest ever." In attendance as well as in everything else, the gathering of 1926 topped all previous records. The cuisine was of excellent quality and chosen with rare discrimination, and the after dinner condiment of wit and wisdom, rich, rare, racy, and ample. The honored position of what the Ancients once called the “Arbiter Convivii", the coveted meed of men of large abilities, was filled most ably and happily by Professor James J. Harrington, '14, as toastmaster. Mr. John Mulrenin, '96, responded to the toast, ‘The Past.” With fine dramatic eloquence, deep sincerity, and rare literary taste, he made an auspicious opening of the evening. A finished, witty, and subtle versification of the epoch of accomplishment of the familiar figure of the alumni of ‘The Present”, was the happy con tribution of Mr. Vincent K. Butler, '12. Speaking for the new born generation of Alma Mater, and responding to the toast “The Future”, Mr. Edward I. Fitzpatrick, '21, drew a rare liter' ary portrait, minutely touched with the most exquisite delicacy and colored and inspired by the sanguine aspirations of youth. “The Spirit of the Future", this was the keynote of the evening. Even in the reunions of sage and portly alumni there was a conspicuous absence of the familiar spirit of “those were the good old days”, alluded to by Horace, the whole gathering being animated by the realization that San Francisco is at last to have a University of its own. The particular delight of Democrats and other conservatives is to smash a program. But the alumni is grateful to the nonconformists, for one of the off program speakers was the Rev. Dionysius J. Mahony, S.J. The beloved “Father Dinny”, former Moderator of the alumni, literally “stop' ped the show.” The annual banquet rose to the dignity of a spontaneous '70— “A popular judge is a deformed thing." That was before our oldest living alumnus, Hon. Jeremiah Sullivan 70, assumed the bench. Beginning life as the youngest judge upon the bench of this state, he concludes in the most exalted judicial office within the gift of this Commonwealth, like his 1GNATI AN and enthusiastic tribute to one of the most revered and loved of Jesuits. Father Mahony's story of the old fire horse who simply couldn't quit, was a classic. “Mahoney, there's your fire bell" will be remembered by alumni young and old, when the subtle sallies of Choate and Chesterfield have be' come dusty with disuse. The program was concluded with the dignified and prayerful eloquence of the Most Reverend Archbishop, Edward J. Hanna. The election of officers for the coming year took place with perfect pre cision. Here is the happy result. President—Charles P. Knights 13 Vice'President—Royal Handlos 16 Vice'President—Andrew Conway '25 Secretary—Martin H. O'Brien 24 Treasurer—Leland R.

It is many years since the two brothers first came to the door of St. Ignatius College, across the sand lots of what is now Fourth and Market. In the long years that have followed, Alma Mater has watched with pride the rise of the two brothers; their work as members of the faculty after graduation, the early beginnings and rise of the law firm of Sullivan and Sullivan, the election of Jeremiah to the Superior bench, the appointment of Matthew I. to the office of Chief Justice of our Supreme Court, and now appointment of Jeremiah by the Governor of the State to the same office. What a joy to the heart of Alma Mater to see the two brothers, still in' separable, still successful, still respected, still beloved, together even in the reception of the highest honor within the gift of the State—Hon. Matthew I. Sullivan and Hon. Jeremiah Sullivan, Past Chief Justices of the Supreme Court of California! HON. JAMES D. PHELAN HONORED AT ALUMNI LUNCHEON Our modern Macenas of Montalvo, California's foremost citizen, Hon. James D. Phelan, was the guest of honor at a luncheon tendered him by the Alumni Association at the Palace Hotel on August 11th upon his return from his last European tour. The former Senator commented in easy conversational fashion upon labor conditions in England, the French war debt, and the Facisti movement in Italy, and gave an intimate account of personal interviews with “Tay Pay" O'Connor and Benito Mussolini. To hear our honored alumnus is much like conversing with a cultured gentleman in his library. Though now practically retired from official public life, Mr. Phelan still commands the attention of the whole commonwealth as a prominent exponent of that broad fundamental culture, the foundations of which, as he is always proud to publicly acknowledge, were laid at old St. Ignatius College. Dr. A. H. Gianini, President of the East River Bank of New York, and California’s unofficial Ambassador to Manhattan, recently returned to his native heath for an all'too'brief visit. Our popular medicoffinancier was Catholic Alumni Association, and for his generous entertainment of the St. Ignatius boys at New York City, en route to the Aloysian Pilgrimage at Rome. '96— “How I envy those who are reading him for the first time." This is what Gouveneur Morris thinks of Josef Conrad, the peer of contemporary English novelists. By this we do not hope to induce you to buy the complete set, but simply call attention to the fact that it is no small achievement to successfully sug' gest the best conclusion to the great unfinished novel of the Polish master who wrote better English than the English themselves, and who is generally regarded as the greatest English novelist of the century. This is the achievement of one of our own number, our distinguished alumnus, Mr. John L. Mulrenin '96, whose essay suggesting the best con' elusion to Conrad's unfinished novel, was awarded a prize by the Saturday Review of Literature. Mr. Mulrenin’s own life story is not entirely lacking of the romance generally believed to be the invention of novelists. By profession a lawyer, he was forced to give up his practice because of the almost total loss of his sight. Always a lover of literature, he did not give himself to idleness. He was read to, even as the great Milton, and by his own persistent effort won the high award referred to here. Now, as the happy result of a delicate operation, his sight is completely restored and he is returning to the active practice of the law with the opening of his own offices. '24— To be selected within a few months of graduation, to be a member of the faculty of his Alma Mater after a brilliant career of public speaking, climaxing in the valedictory of '26, is indeed an enviable record for any alumnus to achieve. To be appointed Assistant U. S. District Attorney, and thus become the youngest lawyer in the entire nation to fill that dis' tinguished position is an accomplishment that has brought to Mr. William A. O'Brien, A.B. '24, LL.B. '26, the congratulations of his many friends. “Meteoric" is the adjective usually employed in describing such a sudden rise to prominence, but to those who have followed intimately “Bill" O'Brien's career, and who recognize his unusual talents and sturdy charac' ter, the conviction is that this is but the splendid dawn of a career which shall spread a more radiant glory upon his Alma Mater and upon himself ere it reach its zenith. It is interesting to note that two other Alumni, Mr. Joseph Sweeney '08, and Mr. Herman Van Der Zee '20, arc also members of the Federal Legal Department. '24— Twice a month, the Lettersmen of 1924 foregather at the Elks Club to obtain noontime nourishment and dispel dull care. Here may be seenIGNATIAN Johnnie O'Brien, who, in the short space of six months, has developed into a great criminal defense lawyer, haranguing his namesake Bill, the boy prosecutor, on the rigors of our criminal procedure. Here also are Charlie Ruggles, Marty O'Brien, Elmer Durkin and Max McVean, big insurance men from California Street, and here, too, are A1 O'Neil and Gene Sulli' van, students of the law. The other members of the class are scattered around different sections of the country, at various educational institutions, discovering for them' selves the structure and functions of the human body and the ills that afflict it. Charlie Sweigert has returned to his medical studies at Stanford, having resigned from the teaching staff of the High School. Ed. Buckley and Milton Premo are at Creighton University while Neil Donnelly and “Chink” Rethers are at St. Louis. Don McQuaide is in the office of the District Attorney at Marysville. '24 has already produced four Professors, Ruggles, Sweigert, Sheehy, and O'Brien, one journalist, Earle Brown, golf expert of the San Francisco Examiner, three lawyers and two doctors. The barristers have already been referred to. The brand new medicos are Dr. John A. Lenehan and Dr. Chas. Mohun, the former now interning at Omaha, Neb., and the latter at St. Louis, Mo. Both are expected home this summer. John will be accompanied by his brother, George, another old St. Ignatius boy, now a medical student at “Creighton.” The wandering students will be hoiv ored by a special luncheon of this now notable and once notorious class. '25— J. Preston Devine '25, Senior student in the law school, still manifests a predilection for the sports of his youth. “Pres” was a member of the winning St. Ignatius debating team that defeated the University of Montana, advocating repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment. “Pres”, we're surprised! “Pres” says that this was his “Farewell performance.” We're not the least discouraged. So did Sarah Bernhardt. Under the head of VITAL STATISTICS we note the following: MARRIAGES: Assemblyman Raymond D. Williamson and Miss Pauline Luby, daughter of Edw. P. Luby, loyal alumnus and former instructor. Chas. “Chick" Wiseman and Miss Mercedes Blake. Horace A. "Minn” Dibcrt '20, and Miss Florence Mary Covick. J.

[81 ]82] IGNATI AN FOOTBALL Jimmy Needles Coach [«] 1GNATI AN vr-vr-vr Jack Douglas Mascot Climaxing three years of football with the Gray Fog Varsity, Captain Dan Murphy led his team through a success ful season. He was an inspiration to his team mates, a threat to his op ponents, and a pillar of strength on offense and defense. His high ex ample of sportsmanship is one to be followed and kept by future captains, and honored by both fu ture and past opponents. S4 Nieland Quarter Carrothers Cenrer Falvey Half ST. IGNATIUS 0, OLYMPIC CLUB 0 This 0'0 tie was one of the red letter games in the varsity season. Only four feet staved off defeat for the Olympic Club at the varsity's hands when the St. Ignatius gridders twice missed a score by that margin. Once when Borchers failed to buck the ball over from the two'foot mark, and again when Owen's boot from placement failed to cross the bar by the aforesaid margin. However, it must be said that the Gray Fog had more than 24 inches on the hosts of Olympia. The newly acquired sobriquet of Gray Fog was an apt description of the impenetrable defense and baffling attack display ed by the varsity on Admission Day. To hold the highly touted Olympic Club eleven scoreless for 60 minutes of play at least amounted to the classi cal moral, if not the actual, victory. Except for Russell Sweet, Olympic flash, it was Ignatians who were the stars of the day's play. “Soup" Tom Carruthers, for instance, at center played rings around the opposing linesman, and “Slide" Falvey ac counted for a total of 18 yards from scrimmage and was responsible for two completed passes to Bill Young.IGNATIAN JSS Connors Meyers Hanlon Half Half End ST. IGNATIUS 27, NEVADA 14 Hot air and the Nevada varsity defeated the “Haze of Hayes Valley” for the second consecutive year, when the team lost to the “Wolf Pack” by the score of 27 to 14. At the very outset the Ignatian hopes were given a hard blow when “Soup” Carrothers, who distinguished himself the week before by his stellar work against his former team-mates of the “Winged O”, was forced out of the game with a torn ligament. To add insult to injury Guy Dawson was carried off the field with a torn back muscle. Breaks were responsible for the two Nevada scores in the first half, Ignatian fumbles being recovered by “Wolf” ends. Bream going over for the touchdown in both cases. The “Gray Fog's” first score came in the second quarter as the result of a Nevada fumble, Falvey driving over for the six points and Farmiloe converting for the seventh. In the last half the “Fog” came out of the haze and began to display a real brand of ball, and in the fourth quarter opened up a passing attack, Neiland to Meyer, that swept through the Nevada defense and netted them their second touchdown, Farmiloe again converting.IGNATIAN Dawson O'Brien Santp.e Half Tackle Full ST. IGNATIUS 0, ST. MARY'S 38 When Saint meets Saint the devil takes the hindmost, and though the official score read St. Mary's 38, St. Ignatius 0 that cannot be taken as a true indicator of the battle the two teams put up. St. Mary's received every break of the game and more power to them; they took advantage of every break and turned them into touchdowns. A nice bit of flashy play on the Ignatians' part came in the first half when Falvey received Watson’s kick'ofT after the touchdown and returned it 46 yards to midfield. In the second period the Saints launched a drive that netted them three touchdowns, displaying some beautiful open field running with the aid of perfect interference, Merrick going over for the touchdowns. In the third period Borchers punted straight up in the air and the Saints took possession on the Fogs 30 yard line, and after the ball had been worked up to the 1 foot line Mulcahy plunged over center. Watson's kick was again blocked, and then after the Ignatians had advanced the ball to the Saints 25 yard line and were all set to score, Santee fumbled, and Frankian, St. Mary's end, sccx)ped the ball up and pranced 67 yards to the final score of the game.I GNAT I AN Kearney Guard Gaddy Full MURPHY Guard ST. IGNATIUS 6, CALIFORNIA AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 0 The best victory of the year for the “Warriors of the Wolf and Pot” was won at Davis from the California Aggie eleven, when the Mustangs had just come from their near triumph over the highly touted Saints of St. Mary's. One lone touchdown and no convert was the slim, but de cisive margin of victory. From the start of the game Coach Needles' men were a bit stronger than the Aggies. They made the only score of the game in the third quarter when Dawson carried the ball around end from the 5 yard line. Opening the first quarter, the Aggies started strong, making the first down in the second play. The Ignatians held and Hussey kicked for the Mustangs. Taking the ball on their own ten yard line, St. Ignatius failed to gain after the Aggies took Young's punt on the 40 yard line and carried the ball to the Ignatians' 10 yard mark. Here the Gray Fog held for downs and kicked. Hussey's passes were blocked by “Soup” Carrothers who played a great game and the ball was in St. Ignatius' possession when the half ended. Starting the second half, the Ignatians received the Aggie kickoff and began the march, netting their winning score. Guy Dawson's long runs resulted in the gains that led up to the touchdowns, Guy going around end time and time again to the despair of Mustang supporters. The Ag' gics made a final rally with Lane and Tout carrying the ball but they lacked the punch to tally. The game ended with the ball in the possession of St. Ignatius on the Aggie 25 yard line.  □ GNAT I AN POLATI Guard Vaccarro End Carroll Tackle ST. IGNATIUS 6, CHICO 0 Spotting the Chico State Teachers some 200 yards in penalties, the con' stantly improving varsity avenged their defeat of last season by trouncing the “Chickens" by a score of 6 to 0. All in all the Gray Fog that swept over the Chico Chicken Coop was altogether too thick and too heavy a mist. In the first period the Teachers opened up a passing attack which they fondly hoped would sweep the mist away. But the fog just stretched forth its tentacles and gathered in every pass with the ease of a conjurer drawing rabbits out of a silk hat. And then to top it all the boys decided to pull a few passes of their own, one being for 30 yards, Owen to Nieland. The only score of the game came in the third quarter of the struggle. Chico kicked off to Gallagher and then Young punted 60 yards to the Chicken 27 yard line, where the Chico safety man fumbled and Gallagher recovered for the Saints. Conners made 2 yards through right tackle and then Guy Dawson showed them that a lad may be down but not out, by scooting 25 yards off tackle to a touchdown. Dawson's drop kick was blocked, and that ended the scoring for the day. Chico made a gallant try in the last quarter but the Fog defense held and the Great Gray Mist registered their second victory of the season when the referee's whistle called it a day. [M] IGNATIAN Guard Half Guard ST. IGNATIUS 0, SAN DIEGO MARINES 0 The nothing'to'nothing tie with the San Diego Marines was actually something to crow about, considering the fact that the team played an eleven that outweighed them two to one. The first quarter was an even'Steven affair, but in the second canto Woods, who starred for the Marines, broke loose from the pile and carried the ball to the Fog 5 yard line before being brought to earth. Here St. Ignatius held Woods Co. until they went bankrupt on downs and Dawson, Nieland, and Owens, returned the oval over the route just tra' versed by the Devil Dogs. A pass good for 30 yards, Nieland to Gallagher, put the ball into a position to score, but Dawson's kick dropped short. St. Ignatius made its strongest bid for score in the third period. Runs, passes, and more runs, brought the ball to the Marine 23 yard line. Nieland elected to try a pass but when the ball fell over the goal line there was no one to receive it. Herb Owens passed to Ossie Meyers in the final quarter for a 30 yard gain and once more the Fog had a chance for points. Herb dropped back for a place kick but the goal posts neatly sidestepped his effort. From then on neither side threatened and the game ended with' out a score. Casey Wainwright Guard Mitchell Guard J' I jGallaoii hr End Owp.ns Full Anderson Hal ST. IGNATIUS 0, ARMY 27 The least said about this game the better. The 27 to 0 score was a severe jolt to Fog supporters and left a bad taste in every Ignatian’s mouth. The Jarheads made their first score on a series of line plays, Gilmore going over for the score. St. Ignatius was offside for the extra point. The Fog thickened on the defense in the second quarter, but in the third period the Army opened a passing attack and the ball was rushed to the 5 yard line. Gilmore bucked the ball over and tallied the extra point. Another score was made in the fourth quarter by the same happy system: long completed passes and a buck to put it over. The final touchdown was made through a Fog fumble. After the Igna' tians had driven the Army to its own 18 yard line, the ball was fumbled and Haralson scooped it up, running 75 yards to a touchdown. Carrothers and Capt. Dan Murphy starred for the Fog in the line, while Nieland and Meyer stood out in the backfield. r 9i ]L1GNATI AN Bii.l Young End Farmiloe Tackle O’Marie Center ST. IGNATIUS 6, LOYOLA 6 A wet, slippery field, a rain that would not be denied, a passing attack par excellence, all were features that contributed to the tie score in the “Game of Two Cities." Loyola versus St. Ignatius was the big game for both schools and the tie satisfied no one, while the Lions went home growl' ing to themselves about San Francisco Thanksgiving Day weather. The last half was played in a driving rainstorm. Loyola drew first blood when Guy Dawson's kick was blocked late in the first quarter. Young was sent in to take up the punting burden, with the ball on the 20 yard line. Young missed his kick entirely and the Fog re' covered the ball on their own five yard line only to relinquish it on downs. Two plays gained two yards for the Lions and the quarter ended. In the first play in the second quarter Currin went over for the touch' down from the three yard line. His try for point was blocked and the half ended with St. Ignatius on the short end of a six to nothing score. The varsity defense stiffened in the second half as the rain came down more heavily, and they finally worked the ball deep into enemy territory.  flGNATIAN Shelley Tackle With seven yards to go and fourth down, Slide Falvey threw a pass to Young some 25 yards and Young scored. With the game hanging on his toe. Tiny Farmiioe received a bad pass from center and score was six to six, where it stood until the final gun. The Gray Fog had two chances to score later. Once when Gallagher caught a pass on the 20 yard line, and again when Slide Falvey broke loose to plant the ball on the Lion ten yard line, but the pigskin was shoved only four yards further. The rain came down more heavily after that and neither team had another opportunity to score. Sherwood on the line and Twomey on the backfield were the outstand' ing players for the Lions, while Capt. Dan Murphy, “Soup” Carrothers, Polati, and Gallagher, were the defensive stars for the Fog. “Ham” GaL lagher played one of the greatest games of his life at end and not a few thought him one of the best ends seen in action around the Bay district. Falvey, fully recovered from his early sesaon knee injury, was the biggest threat of the Ignatian backfield. His ability to elude tacklers on a wet and soggy field was uncanny, and on the throwing end of passes with a slippery ball he gave an exhibition of passing that has seldom been seen under such adverse weather conditions.

IGNATIUS 26, NEVADA 18 This was the first game of the season and the varsity got off to a good start, even though Jim Needles, regular coach, was not present. St. Ignatius led a half time seven to five, but in the beginning of the second half, Nevada spurted into the lead, eleven to ten. Here Ray Maloney entered the fray, and Feerick took Morrissey's place at center. The Maloney, Feerick, Patridge combination commenced to function inv mediately, Maloney and Patridge between them accounting for fourteen points. Maloney and George Olson proved their claim as varsity material in this game, while it was A1 O'Neills stellar work at standing guard that kept the team morale at a high pitch throughout.

Both Captain Phil Morrissey and George Olson were out of this game and that left a big hole in the defense. At no time in the game were the varsity in the lead. The Vandals jumped out in front and were leading 20 to 8 at half time. In the second half the tide was momentarily stemmed but the Idaho attack could not be denied.

The habitual star, Ray Maloney, was high point man with 8 markers, while Phil Morrissey was a close second with 7 points.

IGNATIUS 26, NEVADA 24 Having become acclimated and smarting under the defeat of the previ' ous evening, St. Ignatius Varsity took the floor with but one idea in mind, that of winning the “rubber.” Ray Maloney and Patridge did a little road work during the day and were in tip'top form. Ray rang the bell for nine counters and high honors, while Pat was close on his heels with eight points to his credit. The game was hard fought all the way. The Varsity managed to hold a fouppoint lead acquired early in the first quarter until the closing minutes of play. With the Fog leading 24'22, George Olson sunk one from center, Nevada countered with a basket from the circle. With the count 26'24, in favor of the Fog, the timer's gun barked and St. Ignatius had taken the third and deciding game of the series from the 1927 champions of the Far Western Conference.

Early season work-outs were impossible, and by the time the weather had reverted to normal the heaviest games on the schedule, notably the Cali' fornia contest, had been canceled. Not all the other occupants of the schedule, however, were weak sisters, and the Ignatians had to do some tall and lofty pastiming to run up the fine record they did. With Jack McCarthy, weatherbeaten survivor of many a professional campaign, in the role of coach, and with Jack Kavanaugh as captain, the team rolled through a season in which it was set down but once. The most encouraging angle was offered by the number of freshmen who succeeded in making the club. As an optimistic outlook for the next year's prospects, the 1927 showing couldn't be beaten. R H E St. Ignatius .......................... 7 II 2 Edward Brown Sons 1 2 3 Batteries—St. Ignatius: Kavanaugh and Maloney; Edw. Brown Sons: Payer, Smith and Johnson. No contest. The industrialists couldn't see Kavanaugh, who was work' ing in mid'August form, and was being accorded flawless backing by his mates. Tom Carrothers waxed vicious and mauled the onion for three behemoth swats, and Joe Henneberry supported him with three more. We remember when that used to be a whole season's allotment for Joe. Ray Maloney handled Kavanaugh with grace and finish, the captain setting down eight hopefuls on strikes. R H E St. Ignatius .......................... 9 10 2 U. C.

The dentists bunched their blows on Pat in one desperate attack, but after that Jack laughed them off with port'sided abandon. He whiffed seven and got rid of many more on Chinese liners that never passed the inner works. Carrothers did a marine act and kept on landing. His efforts this time were a triple and a double, the triple being a mute witness as to the stuff his speed is made of. It screamed into far left field, but three relayed throws kept the “Soup" on third. Gaetjen joined the barrage with a hefty round'trip blow to deep left center and Gene Sullivan turned in some neat obstruction work at third.St. Ignatius: Broadmerkle. IGNAT I AN BASEBALL Kavanaugh and Maloney; Y. M. I.: Dillon, Zappctini and R H E 3 7 4 5 6 1 Whether the fact that this contest was played early on a Sunday morn' ing had anything to do with the result we hesitate to say. Probably semi' pro athletes have no more liking for early hours after the night out than the college variety, but they certainly seemed a little more wide awake on this particular morning. Four boots was the pretentious total offered by the Fog defenders, and even with Captain Kavanaugh's fine twirling, this was enough to throw the game the other way. Carrothers slapped two more, and Broadmerkle was the only Institute man capable of solving Kavanaugh, who fanned twelve. On the basis of earned runs, the Igna' tians should have won in a walk. Ray Maloney caught a heady and in' telligent game. R H E St. Ignatius .............................. 7 10 2 Simmons Saw File Co...................... 4 8 1 Batteries—St. Ignatius: Patridge and Maloney; Simmons Co.: Kessidge and O'Brien. Patridge turned in a neat bit of chucking and the wrecking crew was also functioning, with Joe Henneberry leading the parade. Ray O'Connor and George Maloney hit at opportune times, and George also played a good infield game. Henneberry displayed a lot of class at short, covering the position like a carpet and he was ably abetted by Elmer Gaetjen. R H E St. Ignatius .......................... 12 14 0 Yellow Cab.............................. 1 5 3 Batteries—St. Ignatius: Kavanaugh, Rock and Maloney; Yellow Cab: Kelly and O'Brien. The Cab boys, champions of the MidAVinter League, didn't have a chance against the Ignatian ball tossers. The school team looked better than they had all season, giving the pitchers excellent support and hitting at the opportune time. Jack Kavanaugh, after pitching airtight ball for five innings, gave way to a youngster, Joe Rock. Joe, pitching his first college game, twirled like a veteran, putting the Cab team down with two scratch hits. Red Kane turned in a fine game at short, stopping every' thing that came his way. Matty Maestri proved to be the hitting star of the day, getting four hits in five trips to the plate. vN t VWWA; ; v • % r 109 ]  High School -----3®5----- [111]C1123ION AT I AN J HIGH SCHOOL FACULTY J.

Hickey, '27 They have been storming the gates of the city for many years, gates which once loomed as seemingly inv penetrable barriers. The siege has been long and the battle hard, but now, the end is in sight. Some of the Army have fought faith' fully and success beckons to them from the tower beyond the gates. Others have been half-hearted in their efforts, and stand idly looking on, useless to their comrades. As a whole, however, they set about their task relentlessly, unceasingly driving the huge battering ram against the gates. But the oracles soon revealed to them that the only way to gain access to the City of Knowledge was to remove the four staples which held the lock secure. Thus the battering ram was abandoned, and they prepared for a long siege against the city while the staples were being drawn out. It is now nearing the end of the fourth year. Three staples have been withdrawn, while the fourth hangs loosely in its setting. Soon they will march through the gate, and when they part at the forks of the road, the Army will disband, each taking che road for which he is prepared. One path leads to Success and Fame: the other to Failure and Sorrow. And while walking along the highway each one may look back, but lo, the gates are closed behind them, the staples replaced, and they cannot return. The great journey has now begun.

The occasion was a dance, which was held at the attractive California Club Ballroom. The affair set somewhat of a precedent as the dance was restricted to members of the graduating class. Headed by Marshall Leahy and composed of Marion Dowdall, Frank Silva, Norman Breeden, Sherman Leahy, Garret McEnerney, and James Ludlow, the com' mittee speedily completed all arrangements in a satisfactory manner. A detail which is usually neglected received the proper attention; with the result that our fair partners cherished very pretty programs as a remenv brance of a delightful evening.DRAMATICS Severn Keys to Baldpate February 16' 17 SENIOR DRAMATIC SOCIETY High school dramatics, so long neglected at St. Ignatius, were resumed last February with the Senior Dramatic Society's presentation of Geo. M. Cohan's “Seven Keys to Baldpate." Under the direction of Mr. O'Neill, S. ]., and Mr. Foster, the players rehearsed their parts for months until they were able to present a play worthy of professional Thespians. James Ludlow held the spotlight in the role of James McGee, a young novelist, the star of the play. His flawless performance was all the more remarkable since it was his first venture in things dramatic. Garret McEnerney maintained a difficult part as old Elijah Quimby, the eccentric caretaker of Baldpate Inn, and brought roars of laughter from the audience by his skillful interpretation of the rural dialect. Frank Silva, in the character of Peters, the demented hermit, provided the comic relief at moments of dramatic tension. Ralph Campiglia com' petently handled the role of Reggy Thornhill, the gentleman crook. All the other members of the cast displayed marked histrionic ability, and carried their roles without a fault. The players set a precedent which will demand every art from future aspirants to dramatic honors. It is doubtful if the performance will ever be surpassed at St. Ignatius. Two performances were given at the Knights of Columbus Hall, and a full house was drawn each evening, despite the heavy rain on the second night.

In accomplishing its prime purpose, that of giving its members a thorough working knowledge of parliamentary procedure and a foundation in public speaking, it has been most successful. Although no outside contests were held, the keenest interest was mani' fested in the weekly debates, which were conducted under the guidance of Mr. Feely, S. J. As a result of the founding of the rival House by the Junior Class, the Senate was composed entirely of Seniors, and the debaters were urged on to greater efforts for the honor of their class. Altogether, the past two semesters rank among the most progressive in the history of debating at St. Ignatius. fj ; v-vv ;v; v; ; v ; v--: { 136 ]Casey President.

The societies of former years included both Seniors and Juniors, but the latter were not eligible for office, and many hesitated to apply for mem' bership because they felt that they could not compete with the more ex' perienced Seniors. Early in the fall term, through the efforts of Mr. Murphy, a rival society was brought into being, the House of Representatives, composed of Juniors alone, and entirely separate from the Senate. This bicameral system, which is in vogue among the leading colleges of the United States, provides equal opportunities for all, and awakens keener interest in the forensic art by the natural competition between the two houses. [137]IGNATI AN HIGH SCHOOL NOTES SANCTUARY SOCIETY One of the oldest institutions at St. Ignatius is the St. John Berchmans Sanctuary Society. Since its founding, it has steadily progressed in mem' bership and efficiency, until today it is an indispensable part of the organ' ization of St. Ignatius Church. The object of the society is to lend dignity to the sacred ceremonies and to inspire added piety among the students. Officers Mr. Clark, S.

Officers Mr. Baud, S.

Formerly reference books were kept in various parts of the buildings, difficult of access to most students, and without orderly arrangement or circulating system. Under the direction of Mr. Strickroth, the work of collecting and classifying these books went on apace for the greater part of two years. Over five thousand volumes, both fiction and reference, have been numbered and catalogued by Mr. Strickroth and his corps of volunteer assistants. The enormity of the task can be imagined when it is realized that each of the three thousand or more reference books was assigned a number after painstaking examination of its contents, catalogued on at least three cards, and numbered in legible figures. The library, which is housed in the former assembly hall under the main building, is the only circulating high school library in the Bay region. It is estimated that an average of more than thirty books are borrowed daily. Mr. Strickroth supervises the work as Head Librarian, with Edward Sullivan, George Gillogley, Joseph Smith, Chas. McCarthy and Charles Wiskotchill as assistants. THE ORCHESTRA At every public function, as well as at the student assemblies, the High School Orchestra was prominent. It has become an integral part of the school's life since its organization three years ago by Mr. Mei, S. J., who, from the humblest of beginnings, developed an orchestra of which any school may well be proud. Mr. Baud, S. J., succeeded him, and under his direction it has grown to its present proportions.

For three years in succession, first place was won by a Sophomore, but this year the cup was awarded to a Third Year man, Edward Sullivan, for his essay, ‘The Obelisk and the Man", in which the qualities which made Washington first in the hearts of his countrymen were compared to the architectural perfection of the monument which bears his name. Second place was taken by a Sophomore, Charles McCarthy, who almost succeeded in adding yet another laurel to Second Year’s crown. Gerald Pope, a Senior, received third honors. FATHERS’ NIGHT Following the example set by the Seniors of last year, the Class of '27 devoted an evening to the honor of that famous family institution, the Dad. The reception was held on Wednesday night, February 9, in the gymnasium, and the attendance was more than gratifying to the hosts. Marshall Leahy, president of the Student Body, delivered the salutatory address, explaining the purpose of the affair and extending a warm welcome to the assembled parents on behalf of the students. A one'act sketch, “Mistress Caf?tlemaine’s Christmas", was presented. The play, which dealt with colonial times, was capably interpreted by Roger O'Meara, A1 Coyne, Vincent McCarthy and Robert Turner. Immediately after the play, the minstrel show which won so much ap' plause at the Block Rally again proved a success. Garret McEnemey was the star performer, while Royland Buckley, '30, demonstrated his vocal and terpsichorean ability through several encores. As a fitting close to the evening's entertainment. Father President gave a short talk outlining the Jesuit ideals of education. The evening was held by all to be one of perfect enjoyment, and we can only hope that future classes will follow the precedent. SANTA CLARA DEBATE On March 9, the House of Representatives met the Santa Clara Preps at College Park and argued the question, “Resolved: That the Philippines should be given their Independence by 1935." The judges rendered a unanimous decision in favor of the Ignatian team, which supported the affirmative side. St. Ignatius was represented by Vincent Casey, Charles Casassa, and Jack O'Dea. Casassa, as alternate, took the place of Percy Creede, who was taken ill a few days before the debate. [140]LOYOLA GUILD Mrs. Frank M. Silva . . Mrs. Charles C. Mohun Mrs. Arthur J.

From start to finish the Ignatians had the game well in hand and not once did the big Red team threaten. The score came in the third canto when Leahy re covered the ball on the 20 yard line. Casey then stepped back and sent the pellet over the bars for the winning score. The mighty Poly team, once thought unbeatable, was outclassed by their lighter opponents and were stunned by the fury of the Ignatian attack. Fat Keil and Frank Reichlin, two lads playing their first game, showed plenty of class and bolstered up the team's forward wall. ST. IGNATIUS 3, MISSION 14 Overconfidence resulted in a defeat for the Drizzle as the Mission Padres showed unexpected strength and took the contest 14'3. The Padres were thought to be an easy setoip after the Poly win but as the score shows, they were not. Casey contributed the field goal and also starred with his punting. The first Mission score came when Tillman circled end for 25 yards while the second resulted from a fumble by a Foglet back. Wilson made some brilliant runs and more than once menaced the Padre's goal. [ 148] IGNATIAN Kennedy Half Tyrell Half Lea my End Sheerin' Full ST.

The Foglets made a real comeback and were a fast and aggressive outfit that were resolved to trample the powerful Dragon squad. Vin Casey netted two of the touchdowns while Bill Wilson con tributed the third. Too much cannot be said about the Drizzle for they displayed a perfect game and swamped their hard fighting opponents. ST. IGNATIUS 7, COLLEGE PARK 0 In their initial start of the season the high school gridders tamed the CoL lege Park Colts to the score of 70, with one, Vin Casey, playing a stellar role. It was Casey who made the lone talley of the contest and it was the same Casey who was continually threatening the Colt defense. Outside of this person the contest was devoid of thrills for both teams resorted to the kicking game. The grid machine that the Foglets displayed seemed to work nicely and Stapleton and McEnerney impressed one as being the main cogs. 149 ]IG NAT I AN McStocker Half Merrill Tackle Haderle Guard Werner End ST.

Marsh Leahy was the thorn in this young man's side, as Marsh persisted in not only stopping him but also all his playmates. Per usual the golden chances came and went, many times the pellet was on the 1 yard line but old man Hard Luck was always there to hinder the Ignatians. Thus was the practice season brought to a close. [ 150] IGNATIAN] y-V r v;;r Rican Guard Mei Center Stapleton Tackle ST. IGNATIUS 0, SAN RAFAEL 0 Fighting as only two evenly balanced rivals can, the diminutive Drizzle and San Rafael battled through four frames of real football to a scoreless tie in their annual clash. Several times the Ignatians worked the ball deep into the Redshirt's territory, mainly through the efforts of Sheerin, only to lose it in the shadow of the goal posts. Nevertheless, the boys showed a good brand of ball in all departments and an apt knowledge of the game. If moral victories are still being conceded, we certainly deserve one, for the Preps took the verdict even if the scoreboard read a nothing'to'nothing tie. [ Ml ]F. Reichun Bray Casey O'Toole End Guard Quarter Guard ST. IGNATIUS 0, LOWELL 14 One period of disastrous football proved to be the undoing of the Foglets in their tussle with the Lowell Cards and consequently they dropped the game, 14 0. Both of these touchdowns were made in the opening canto and were the result of bad breaks; the first came when an alert Lowell back recovered an Ignatian fumble and the second occurred when Welch, with plenty of luck, rambled down the field to a score. For the other three frames the lads played some real football and Sheerin, O'Connor and Casey distinguished themselves with their stellar work. In the line, Chis' holm, Keil and Frank Reichlin came in for their share of the praise. ST. IGNATIUS 6, LICKAVILMERDING 14 “Outsplashed but not outfought" is the fitting title that some witnessing scribe tacked on this fray. In a perfect sea of mud the Drizzle lost to the Lick Tigers 14-6 but in doing so gave the Lick men one of their hardest battles of the season. The Tigers, city champs and conquerors of the state title holders, scored their touchdowns in the first and third quarters with the Ignatian forward wall giving them plenty of opposition. The stars of this defense were the good old dependables Mei and O'Toole. It was the work of Bill Wilson, who skidded to the only Foglet score of the day, that was spectacular. Bill was aided in his rompings by the splendid interference of Tyrell and Bray.IGNATI AN Wilson Half Kkkneally Tackle O'Connor Half Prendeville Center ST. IGNATIUS 7, SACRED HEART 18 Old man Hard Luck has always accompanied us in our previous frays with Sacred Heart and this year he did not fail to grace us with his little wished'for presence. Not to offer any alibis or anything to that effect, but a fumble, a freak play, and a blocked kick were the three disastrous items that manufactured the eighteen points and a victory for the Fighting Irish (?). But we may take some solace from the score for this year's squad has been the first so far to cross the Hibernians' goal. Twelve of the Gaelic points came as a result of their alert backs con' verting a fumble and a blocked kick into scores. This might be expected in the routine of the contest but the play that gave them the remaining touchdown was both freaky and inexplainable. O'Brien punted to Tyrell who chose to let the pellet go by. But some clear and farsighted official had the impression that said pellet had touched Tyrell and as Sacred Heart had downed the ball behind the goal line they were entitled to the accustom' ed six digits. And now to come to the Ignatian score. Late in the second half Casey and Sheerin managed to get the pigskin deep into the Irish territory. Sheerin then lived up to his monicker of Iron Man and with some fiery and powerful line bucks that crumbled up the Gaelic defense, staged the lone Ignatian touchdown. Casey converted and thus ended our glory for the afternoon. It is hard to pick out any individual star when all the fellows fought so hard, but Captain Garret McEnerney merits praise because of his all' around excellent playing and wonderful leadership. Mac finished his high school football in a wonderful manner. Mei and Chisholm did much to avert defeat and their performances on that day will not be forgotten.

The Ignatian's attack was too speedy and diversified for the Bear Babes, and the superb defense of the Drizzle kept the ball at one end of the floor and that was the wrong end for the Bruins. The work of Leahy and Nicholas in this eventful fray made more than one fair co'ed gnash her teeth in woe, for these two lads were contin' ually baffling the Blue and Gold wearers with their tricky work. Tollini also comes in for his share of commendation as he played a stellar defensive that stopped all possible Frosh scores. And what is not to be forgotten, this was the first time the mighty California Freshman ever lost to a high school team. ST. IGNATIUS 18, ST. MARY'S 16 With three regulars on the sick list the lads were forced to take on the strong Saint Mary's Preps, whose record in the past had been more than [ l?5 ] O'Cara Toluni Lyons Guard Guard Center good. Casey and Reichlin were the only two regulars who started the game and the only two on the floor. The Saints were some aggregation and they gave the Foglets plenty of trouble and the fray was every bit as close as the score indicates. McEnerney and Sheerin did more than their share in gain' ing victory and they were the cogs of a badly crippled machine that just did pull through to victory. One must take into consideration the absence of the captain and two important aides, and one will not be troubled by the closeness of the score. ST. IGNATIUS 40, MISSION 11 The highly touted Mission hoopsters, who, according to advance reports, were supposed to give the Ignatians a hard battle, were completely out' classed by the high school's superior team and were lucky to score eleven points against the terrific attack of the Foglets. The lads showed an ex' ceptionally good brand of basketball and their offensive work featuring Casey and Reichlin was much above par. Joe Sheerin also was right there when it came to drawing applause from the gallery critics. And one must not forget the cavorting of Mario Tollini, who was more than good and whose defensive labor kept the score so low. ST. IGNATIUS 42, LOWELL 7 The Drab Drizzle were certainly more than their name implied when they swamped the Lowell Cards with a forty'two to seven score. The game was a “mere formality" and the spectators were led to pity the unfortunate Lowell players, who were able to sink one field goal during the whole fray. No individual star can be picked from such a game and due credit must go to the whole squad because of the determination and ability showed by both first and second strings. Bareilles did much to pile up the score and O'Gara and Nicholas also looked fair.I GNAT I AN Chisholm Guard Sheerin Forward M. Reichlin Forward ST. IGNATIUS 42, POLYTECHNIC 21 Mechanics are always troublesome and it was feared that the Poly Me' chanic would be more than troublesome to the Ignatian cagers. But when the game started all fears were cast aside, for it was readily perceived that Red and Blue would triumph over the Red and Black. From start to finish the Drizzle had it all their own way, and the scores were having a busy time chalking up digits for the squad and for Reichlin, Lyons, and Casey in par' ticular. Reichlin had the crowd on their toes during most of the game because of his uncanny skill in getting long field goals. CITY CHAMPIONSHIP GAME ST. IGNATIUS 21, GALILEO 18 This game was thrilling and hair raising, but the. crowds, the rooting sections and the general bedlam was not only stirring, but it seemed to carry one into the midst of a big game setting. The Ignatian rooting section, a solid white block of seven hundred rabid students flaunting for their banner a great Red and Blue St. Ignatius ensign, took on a magnificent appearance and can be certainly considered as a factor in the winning of the champion' ship. The game was fast and evenly balanced, with the Galileans showing a poor defensive and the Foglets displaying a brilliant offensive. The first half ended with a twelve to twelve score with both teams battling for the advantage. The second half, however, holds the glory for the Drizzle hoop' sters. The homicide trio, Leahy, Casey and Bareilles, swung into action and as a result the score began to mount more to the rooters liking. All three of these men played like demons and it was their shots and alLround floor work combined with the work of Chisholm, Reichlin and Nicholas, that ob' tained the title.

A. A. championship. Led by Joe Coughlin, Northern Cali' fornia Interscholastic title holder, the tennis squad has not been defeated and all of their victories have been exceptionally brilliant and striking. Not only has the high school Coughlin to rely on but it is also blessed with a wealth of clever racquet handlers. Pegg looks good on the court and he and Coughlin have consistently won when paired together. In the pre'season matches Hyde and Wills looked well and they will certainly be noticeable in the city tournament. Gallagher makes a nice showing and much is expected of him. To date, the tennis team has accomplished the following feats: St. Ignatius defeated California Frosh, 4'2. St. Ignatius defeated Stanford Frosh, 4'3. St. Ignatius tied San Mateo Junior College, 3'3. [169] IGNATI AN TRACK Some sixty odd aspirants clad in their abbreviated uniforms answered the call for track. Although the season is still in its infancy and only interclass and practice meets have been held thus far, everything points to a successful season. In the Unlimited division Bob Cabrera is one of the fastest dash men that has ever worn a St. Ignatius uniform. Regan in the middle distance event has improved his stride and ought to be right up in the front ranks in the 440. Jack Werner who showed his ability as a high jumper last year is this year showing his versatility by also running the mile in very creditable time. The prospects in the 130-pound division are just as bright. Buttgen-bach, McStocker and Lennon are showing real ability in the dashes. “Nip” Nolan is putting the 12-pound shot 45 feet, which mark ought to insure him a place in the annual meet. In the 120-pound class Francis O'Gara lifts his feet and puts them down just a little bit faster than he did last year when he won the 50-yard event in six seconds flat. Ohleycr and Writesman are also counted on as point winners in this division. The 110-pound division is not without its coterie of stars, one Charlie Guenther gives promise of developing into one of the best dash men ever developed at St. Ignatius. Grady and Dan Kelleher are also showing up well. In the 100-pound class DeMartini, Cullinan, and Buckley will make a strong bid for places in the A. A. A. classic on the 7th of May. Signal honor was bestowed on St. Ignatius when Bob Cabrera, Jack Werner, and Tom Regan were chosen from St. Ignatius to compete in the Annual San Francisco High School-Stanford Freshman Track Meet.  IGNATI AN SWIMMING For two years St. Ignatius swimming team has ranked among the best at the city meet. Each time it has done so without any coaching and relying solely on individual ability. This year a coach in the person of Tom Kiernan, noted developer of many national stars, was procured and things arranged that he might give his charges some of the knowledge of the aquatic art of which they were so much in need. Another impetus was given swimming when the Y. M. I. tank was secured for regular practice. Three times a week the swimming team has exclusive use of the Y. M. I. pool. This concession of the Young Men's Institute has done much to fill a long felt need among the swimmers of St. Ignatius. Among the mermen who turned out for the team were such men as O'Connor, Mert Kelleher, Silva, Scott, Lastreto, and Sullivan. All of these men are paddlers of no mean repute and they should help to consti' tute the best swimming team that the school has ever possessed. O'Connor especially, seems to loom up as a point getter in view of his taking first place in the diving event for the two preceding years, Kellehei; and Looney are also counted on to register a few points in the A. A. A. water carnival. !71 }  CIGNATIAN LITERARY THE OBELISK AND THE MAN (Winner, Washington Essay Contest) By Edward Sullivan, '28 Piercing the sky above the nation's capitol towers a single shaft of marble —the Washington Monument. Every art of the builder, every device of the mason, has been employed in making it a masterpiece of architecture, and no labor or cost was too great to be expended for the honor of Wash' ington. Visitors from every quarter of the globe wonder at its simple grandeur and sense the devotion of the people who erected it. But great though it may be as a work of man, expressive though it is of a nation's reverence, it is above all a singularly fitting memorial to the man whose memory it enshrines. Whether by design of the builders or by a happy chance, I know not, but the monument as it stands seems to me to symbolize the real Washington far more than could a thousand fanciful statues. For the memorial is not a colonnaded temple, not an intricate statue, carved with symbol and allegory, but a monolith—a single shaft pointing skyward. So the keynote of Washington's character was his single-minded' ness, his zealous and whole-hearted devotion to a single ideal. The dream of a free nation stood alone in his imagination. His life was wrapped up in the pursuit of one ambition—the freeing of his people. As the shaft points straight and true to the zenith, so Washington followed the straightcst path, as he saw it, to the accomplishment of his end. For miles in each direction the column dominates the landscape; the surrounding buildings fade into insignificance beside it. From every side it stands out as the high point of the city. Gazing upward from the base, the height is stupendous. But if it rose above the highest clouds, if it mounted to the loftiest layers of the upper air, it would fall far short of the height of Washington's nobility—it would seem infinitestimal in comparison to the altitude of his aims. He rose above petty disputes; his heart was too high to harbor malice. As the view from the topmost pinnacle reaches away to the hazy horizons, so, from the height of his intellect, he looked far into the years of his country's future, and as the relative proportions of the landscape, the happenings on the earth below, are apparent to the observer from the shaft's top, so Washington saw spread before him in every detail the problems which faced him, the consequences which hung on his decisions. Unlike most great patriots, whose ardor obscured their finer judgment, he saw both sides of every question, and recognized the rights of his opponents. And the things that were small and beneath him. [ 172]he saw as they were, even as the walking figures below appear small as ants from the tower, while the worthy things loomed large before his eyes, like to the great buildings which approach, but cannot equal, the height of the monument. No figures adorn the plain white sides of the monolith; not an unneces-sary projection breaks the level sweep of the marble blocks. The design is of the simplest. And even thus George Washington's character was simple, ungarnished, and sincere. He spoke and acted from his heart, not with any view to praise or reward. His words and deeds were unclouded by any vain show of glory. He saw and spoke the truth as undeviatingly as the marble sides are straight. Not for him the idle pomps that surround the great. He was a man of the people, plain, honest, true, unspoiled by the fame which accrued to him during his lifetime. The shaft is made of the choicest marble, flawless, and shining white. But the perfection of the cold stone cannot begin to compare with the spotless purity of Washington's character. The purest product of the vaults of Paros is seamed with flaws beside the heart of Washington. Never a hint of scandal touched his name. No outside influence swerved him from the path of duty. He accepted no remuneration for his wartime services; no party strife or favoritism darkened the days of his administra' tion. His devotion to the laws of his Maker and to the interests of his country precluded all these. And the column stands as it has stood for forty years, through every storm, staunch and immovable. Though storm-clouds buffet its sides and lightnings play about its pinnacle, through driving rains and screaming winds, it moves not an inch, nor bows its head. So Washington stood in the face of adversity. No physical hardship—and he received his share of these—could turn him from his goal or dampen his enthusiasm. No opposition held him from his ends. No calm caused him to relax his vigilance, nor prosperity to rest in satisfaction. As the monument stands, wrought from the living rock, adamant against wind and weather, so Washington stood at the helm of the Ship of State, unmoved by man-made storms. And his fame will endure in the hearts of men long after the shaft has crumbled to ruins, and the stones have returned to the dust. The blocks of which the monument is made were donated by states, cities, institutions, or private citizens, as their tribute to the memory of Washington. The work was carried on by the contributions of the people whose country he gave to them. The shaft was raised, not by one man alone, but by the willing hands of every section of the country. And this is in keeping with the character of Washington. His monument was made as he might have wished it. For he subjugated himself always to the interests of the nation—he was not a single man, but the representativeIO NAT IA N of the country, the sum of all its hopes and fears. His strong individuality was that of the entire nation. When he spoke, it was with the voice of a whole people, of which he was the inspired leader. So the white shaft stands in silent vigil over the dark-flowing waters of the Potomac, even as the spirit of Washington hovers in fatherly love over the turbulent stream of the nation's life. The monument stands at dawn, a giant figure against the red sky. Its silhouette looms huge in the face of the rising sun. And at the gray dusk, it is a dim bulk in the shadows, but ever-present, until it shines in the light of a new day. As a fitting climax, the metal cap which tops the obelisk is inscribed, as was the innermost soul of Washington, with the words "Laus Deo." Praise to the God, Who in His Wisdom, gave us this man to be the father of our country. BON VOYAGE By John A. Coyne, '27 Before your gaze the billows rise, And sink along the shores of Time; Across your cheek the salt spray flies— The subtle tang of realms sublime! Your fame, your fortune, lie beyond. Upon the swirling sea of Life; Beware the shallows of Despond— Ride deep; and know the joys of strife. Let Fortitude your pilot be To watch with Faith beside the wheel; Hope’s beacon o’er a glowering sea Will light the course of pressing keel. And when you've drained the seaman's cup, Have tasted gall and drunk of wine, Then let your dreams of youth rise up To guide you to a port divine. V„ V. V. 'V.-V- V. r 174IGNATI AN P CREATIVE READING By John Robinson, '28 ‘The first time I read an excellent book it is to me just as if I had gained a new friend. When I read over a book I have perused before, it resembles the meeting with an old one." —Carlyle. To define reading as a means of "re-creating the past" is simplicity itself, but to apply this definition is an art. But what is the distinction? Can one not read successfully by merely reviewing what has gone before? Do not histories bring the past to us far more accurately than the most precise of the great authors? To deny these questions would be a fallacy, to support them would be absurd. Hence we must turn to the alternative and make a distinction. It is this distinction between glimpsing the past and recreating it that marks the difference between mere reading and the true understanding of a book. Indeed, the distinction appears slight, but it is not negligible; it is the bridge that leads the reader from the present age across the ever widening river of time to the beautiful country of the past. As Collier says: “By reading, a man does, as it were, antedate his life, and make himself contemporary with past ages." But there is a key to this art, a manner by which it may be mastered. The fact that all good literature, contemporary as well as the more remote, re-creates an era with which we are more or less unfamiliar needs no explanation. The conclusion, therefore, cannot be obscure. If we are to recreate the past it will be through our efforts alone, we must do all in our power to ascertain the author's point of view. If we see and feel the object as he saw it, and know it as he knew it, we are reading properly. But this can be accomplished only with choice literature, so the first step in creative reading is the selection of creative writings. Lytton tells us to read “In science, by preference, the newest works; in literature, the oldest. The classic literature is always modern”, and though many modern writers are satisfactory, the true beauty of reading seems to be reserved to the works of the old masters of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. After selecting a suitable book, the next step, by far the most important one, is to see, know, and feel the narrative as the writer saw, knew, and felt it. Though a thousand people might see an opera, perhaps a very few would really appreciate the composer's efforts, or be impressed exactly as he was with the work. So it is with reading. Unless we really feel the conditions set forth in the story; unless we visualize the conditions of place and time, and know the environment that surrounded the characters we are like those who saw the opera, but were not impressed. Of the three necessary I GNAT I AN faculties in reading, feeling is the most important, for without it creative reading is impossible. A brief enumeration of these qualities, therefore will now be given in the order of their importance. The main qualities of a story are the emotion and beauty which it pop trays. The portrayal of these should not be too flowery, nor too strong. Too many readers are becoming accustomed to judge the quality of a narra' tive by the degree of shock which it gives them, and not by the impression which it creates, or does not create. The beauty of a soft, graceful para graph gives to the creative reader a far greater satisfaction than the brazen sentences of certain novels afford to those who eagerly swallow the morbid details which are soon forgotten. Though the beauty of a story is within the reach of all, it is grasped only by those who feel what the author felt. The reading of good literature will lead us into a new land, and our emo' tions will follow naturally, so it becomes necessary for us to only place oup selves in the correct mood, and we will have accomplished the most difficult part of reading. Our imagination cannot accomplish this, it must be done by our soul, for it is our soul that is torn with the same anxieties, frozen wih he same perils, and gladdened wih the same joys that were experienced by those whom the author created. The second necessary capability, seeing, may be concisely and accurately defined by one word, imagination. Just as in feeling what the author de-sires us to feel, it is entirely for us to decide just how much benefit we will derive from a book. While feeling concerns itself with the emotions, however, seeing pertains rather to the picturization of both scenes and char' acters. If we create a clear and vivid impression of some character in our mind, our reading will not only be easier, but also more interesting, and re-creation will come naturally. Carlyle once said that “We have not read an author until we have seen his object, whatever it may be, as he saw it.” The last essential to creative reading is knowing the subject. This takes little effort on the part of the reader; to know one needs only to concentrate for a moment on the idea which the writer means to convey. Of course some ideas are rather difficult to grasp, while others are exceedingly so, but at least our minds are kept alert by reading creatively. But we should always remember this important fact. To read crea-tively, we must peruse creative books, for we cannot expect to derive qualities from a book written by one to whom these same attributes were fop eign. This requirement, for it is such, has been fittingly explained by the immortal Emmerson in these words: “There is creative reading, as well as creative writing." r i76] SAN FRANCISCO BY NIGHT By Edward Sullivan, '28 All the historic cities of the world have been built upon hills; the glory of Athens found its crowning point in the Acropolis—Rome was spread mantle-like over its Seven Hills. San Francisco, with its hills upon hills towering like giant waves above the lesser billows of the ocean, is thrice blest. From the summit of either of the Twin Brethren which guard it, the prospect is one to inspire admiring wonder at the works of God and man. But by night, when the orbed chariot of the heavens sheds its silver radiance over hill and wave, the awe is gone, and only the sublime beauty of the sleeping giant is borne in upon the beholder. The great buildings rise in phantom forms against the star-filled firmament, and above the tallest of these hangs the moon, like a mammoth eye ever open to guard the silent city. The houses, merged by the darkness into a single cloak of velvet black, laid upon the bosoms of the hills, are bathed in liquid silver. Far below, the park reaches away to the sea's rim, dark and mystic, save where here and there some tall tree towers above its fellows and catches the argent gleam on leaf and bough. And far in the dim West, the restless sea lifts its tenuous crests of foam to meet the moonbeams. It is at moments such as this that one shares the feelings of the ancients, who bowed in adoration before the silver mistress of the night.GEORGE WASHINGTON, THE MAN By Charles McCarthy, '29 “What was it that raised Washington to such a height of glory?" This is the question which will be raised by the children of years to come when they hear his immortal name re-echoed from every lip. And what is the answer to such an inquiry? Is it an account of Washington as the Gen' eral, recounting his deeds of valor, his military skill, or his fearlessness? Or, again, shall it be a dilation upon his fame as a statesman? No; the answer is neither a narration eulogizing Washington, the Soldier, the Pa' triot, nor the Statesman, whether in peace or in war, in victory or in defeat; because above all these there towers like a huge and refulgent lighthouse upon a promontory, the majestic and commanding figure of Washington, the Man. His prowess, his strategy, and his intrepidity as the Commander'in'chief of the Colonial army may have struck fear into the ranks of the enemy and filled the hearts of his own men with confidence, faith, and daring; his skill, his tact, and his integrity as a statesman may have commanded the respect, admiration, and support of all parties, but the virtuous conduct of his life as a man, his strong sense of duty, his unswerving rectitude, his sterling character, and his abiding faith in his Creator, enshrined him in the heart of our nation and gained for him the unbounded love, veneration, and sympathy of his countrymen not only of his own time but also in the years which have ensued since that memorable era. In these times not only the United States but the whole world might study Washington and his life to advantage, for Washington, like the truly great men of all ages, belongs not to one nation alone but to Humanity. For America can no more lay exclusive claims to Washington than Greece to Homer, Italy to Columbus, or England to Shakespeare, for as an English statesman once said, “His fame is eternity and his residence—creation." In the production of Washington, it really appears as if nature were en' deavoring to improve upon herself, and that all the virtues of the old world were but so many studies preparatory to this noble man of the new. In' dividual instances, no doubt, they were: splendid exemplifications of some single qualification. Caesar was merciful, Scipio was continent, and Hanni' bal was patient, but it was left for Washington to blend them all in one, and to exhibit in one glow of associated beauty, the pride of every model and the perfection of every master. Aya General, he marshaled the rustic into a veteran and supplied by discipline the absence of experience; as a statesman, he enlarged the policy of the cabinet into the most comprehensive system of general advantage;and such was the wisdom of his views and the philosophy of his counsels, that to the soldier and the statesman he added the character of the sage. As a conqueror, he was untainted with the crime of blood; as a revolu' tionist he was free from any stain of treason, for aggression commenced the war and his country called him to command. Liberty unsheathed his sword, necessity stained it, and victory returned it. A critical study of Washington's career would only enhance our estima' tion of his vast and varied abilities. As Commanderdn'chief of the Ameri' can armies from the beginning of the war until the proclamation of peace, as the President of the Convention which framed the Constitution of the United States and as the first President of the United States under that Con' stitution, Washington has a distinction unlike that of any other illustrious American. No other name bears or can bear such a relation to the govern' ment and no other man presents or has presented such a model character to the youth of our nation or of the world as does Washington. Not only by his military skill, his patience, his sagacity and his genius, was our national independence won, but he helped in a large measure to draft the chart by which the nation was guided; and he was first chosen by the people to put in motion the new government. First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen, he was second to none in the fond and endearing scenes of private life. Pious, just, humane, temperate, and sincere; uniform, dignified, and commanding, his example was edifying to those about him as the effects of that example were lasting. Correct throughout, vice shuddered in his presence and virtue constantly felt his fostering hand; the purity of his private character has per' fected the man made famous by his public virtues. Washington had not the boldness of martial display nor the golden charm of captivating oratory. Washington was pre'eminently a man of action actuated by sound judgment rather than a man of speech responding to feelings of emotion, but his actions were always of such a commanding character that he inspired the eloquent speech of others, and this, in turn, won him other men’s support and commanded their confidence by appealing to their best and noblest aspirations. Masterful as were Washington's military campaigns, his civil administra' tion commands equal admiration. His foresight was marvelous, his conception of the philosophy of govern' ment, his insistence upon the necessity of education, morality, and enlight' ened citizenship to the progress and permanence of the Republic cannot be contemplated, even at this comparatively recent period, without filling us with astonishment and admiration at the breadth of his comprehension and the sweep of his vision. His was no narrow view of government, the immediate present was not his sole concern but our future welfare was hisconstant theme of study. He blazed the path of liberty and he laid the foundation upon which we have grown from a weak and scattered con' glomeration of colonial governments to a united one whose domains as well as whose liberty and freedom have gained the universal admiration of all nations. And all through his public life he was ever so modest as never to seem in the least intrusive. An interesting fact is that the only time which he ever addressed the Constitutional Congress over which he presided was to ask for a larger representation of the people in Congress, and his suggestion was instantly heeded. Thus was he ever jealously vigilant over the rights of the people whom he represented. Had Washington paused after his fame as a soldier and a statesman had been established, history might have doubted which position she should as' sign him, whether at the head of her citizens or her soldiers, her heroes or her patriots, but there was one glorious deed which crowned his career and banished all hesitation, for who, like Washington, after having emancipated a hemisphere, would have resigned its crown and preferred the retirement of domestic life to the adoration of a nation which he might almost have been said to have created? He was above the temptation of power, for he spurned the suggested crown. He would have no honor which the people did not bestow. It is in testimony of such unselfish and glorious deeds as this that history gives Washington the title of ‘The Man." I cannot better close this description of Washington than to quote here those famous words of Robert C. Winthrop in his oration at the laying of the cornerstone of the Washington monument, ‘The Republic may perish; the wide arch of our raised Union may fall; star by star its glory may expire; stone after stone its columns and its capitol may molder and crumble; all other names which adorn its annals may be forgotten; but as long as human hearts shall anywhere pant, or human tongues shall anywhere plead for a sure, rational, constitutional liberty, those hearts shall enshrine the memory and those tongues shall prolong the fame of George Wash' ington." IGNATI AN THE SEA By Edward A. Sullivan, '28 Before the trees and the beasts were made, or the planets whirled in their orbits; before the first man woke in Eden's groves; the sea was. Its voice reverberated through the stygian, starless dark, and its chill breath fanned the cheek of night. And the first morning of creation, the first warming flush of the new'born sun, pierced through the mists of the world to shine upon a writhing sea. As the red radiance dispelled the mists and charnel cold, the ocean's bosom heaved and fell in the restless rolling of the first day. The breakers rushing in with dizzy speed, dashed themselves to foam against the glistening rocks, and hurled up clouds of spray in salute to the glowing orb. Black, riven crags frowned above the line of reddening foam, beginning in the silent immobility their fight of ages with the battering waves. The sea, for its part retreated from the gleaming, sandless shore, to muster its forces anew. In swirling eddies the black waters rushed and rolled with one motion into a fresh swelling crest, to dash again futilely against the resisting rock, again to cast its offering to the blazing sun god. The last shreds of fog flew before the warming shafts, and the red of the dawn'sky changed to deepest azure. To the far horizon stretched the waste bosom of the panting sea—no sail—no creature of the deep to mar its blue expanse, and along the towering rampart of sable cliffs, far to the north and far to the south, reached the white line of breakers, shattering the air with their ceaseless thunder, senseless, inanimate, yet speaking with the voice of a thousand tongues—and none to hear. And in from the deep came a salt breeze, the first warm breath of creation. Such was the sea in the days before man came—vast, untrammeled, clean, unsmirched with smoke and debris, knowing no master save the pull of the planets. 181 ]  .
