LOYOLA COLLEGE Page 2 REVIEW THE OUEBEC CONFERENCE The month of August, 1943, saw the picturesque Chateau Frontenac of Quebec play host to the greatest assemblage of international dignitaries ever to visit our shores. Under the leadership of the ubiquitous President Roosevelt and Prime Min- ister Churchill, premiers and representatives of over thirty United Nations met hard by the historic Plains of Abraham. The conference was carried on behind closed aoors and closed with the issuance of a cryptic announcement couched in general terms, which revealed that the discussions held covered a wide range of subjects in the political, diplomatic, military, and allied fields, and resulted in decisions rati- fied by the participating representatives. The course of events since that momentous gathering has revealed in part the decisions that were reached, and strategy that was formulated, and the operations that were planned. The year that has passed has seen the invasion of Italy, the downfall of Italian Fascism, and a bitter German defence against the Allied march on Rome. At Quebec, too, were germinated the plans for the advance of United Nations forces in the Pacific which has set our wily Asiatic foe temporarily back upon his heels. The offensives mounted in New Guinea, and in the Solomon, Gilbert, Marshall and Admiralty Islands, — despite grave problems in what arm-chair strategists are pleased to call logistics — are indeed a striking monument to the planners of Quebec. We, as Canadians, and especially as inhabitants of Canada's oldest province, should deem the selection of Quebec as the meeting-ground of nations a great honor, and should take pride in the Quebec Conference as an indication of Canada's growing and increasing strength among the powers of the world. Let us not rest too quickly on our hard-won wartime laurels—for nothing indeed can be more deadly to Canada's future than an attitude of smug self-satisfaction on our part—but let us face the challenge of the future with our foresight undimmed, our courage unfalter- ing, and our faith unshaken. LA y S.S.C.A. Visits Loyola During the week from June 28th to July 3rd last year, as many as nineteen hundred people crossed and recrossed the Loyola Campus on their way to the various buildings. For during those six memorable days Father Lord's Summer School of Catholic Action attracted to our Campus delegates from Newfoundland, from the United States and from scattered parts of the Dominion. General sessions for all, organizational classes for various groups, and electives for everybody's choice embodied the types of lectures that were delivered daily to eager listeners. Great enthusiasm was manifested both by the staff and the students and without hesitation one could state that all immensely enjoyed themselves and deeply increased their fund of knowledge. A feature that added social spirit to the group was the nightly entertainment that took place for the benefit of all who desired it. And from all accounts many desired it. But probably the best proof of the success of the SSCA is the fact that the school is returning to Montreal again this year from June 26th to July 1st. The appropriateness of this years theme, “With Mary toward a Christlike World can be readily realized by any zealous Catholic.

All subscriptions will be gratefully received. 1944 MONTREAL, CANADA No. 30 EDITORIAL REVEREND EDWARD O'GARA, $,Ј. After fifty years in the religious life Father O'Gara died at Loyola on March 28th. He entered the Society of Jesus in 1890 and made his novitiate at Sault-au-Recollet, where the common novitiate of all Jesuits in Canada was located at that time. From 1892 until 1905, Montreal was the scene of Father O’Gara’s early life as a religious, both as a student of philosophy and theology, and as a professor at Loyola, then on Drummond Street. Finally after fifteen years of preparation he was ordained in the Basilica in Ottawa, his home town, on August 6, 1905. After a year at Loyola as recreation master, he went to Poughkeepsie to make his tertianship, the last year of Jesuit formation. A great part of the latter years of his life was spent in Western Canada. He was three years at St. Boniface College as professor of English before being named as superior of the Jesuit church at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. In 1914 he was appointed pastor of St. Ignatius’ parish, Winnipeg, where he remained for twenty years. Father O'Gara gave up his parish in 1934 and returned to Loyola for a last time. He loved life and endeared himself to the many who came in contact with him. Previous to his last illness, he was accus- tomed to take walks every day, and these were occasions for widening his circle of friends, whose names seemed never to be forgotten. The young and the old, Protestant and Catholic, the poor and the rich were all but parts of the fabric of life, and the pattern was intensely interesting to Father O’Gara. He displayed great patience in his illness which cut off so much of his contact with life, and bravely accepted death when it came. R.I.P.

LOYOLA Page 3 COLLEGE REVIEW Those who were present last year will certainly need no encouragement to return for they have tasted well of the fruits of such a course. But less anyone miss this golden шшк again, we would exhort all who can possibly attend, to do so. Surely it will be “Six days you will never forget. Н. Hatt, 46. Y Y LA Albert Picotte Loyola lost a very loyal son when Albert Picotte was called by death. His classmates of the graduating class of ‘44 were stunned to hear of his sudden death by drowning a short three weeks before he was to receive his degree with them on Convocation Day. His loss was felt the more keenly because of the warm spirit of loyalty to Loyola and friendliness to all that Albert had displayed. In his brief stay of two years among us he showed his mettle as a Loyola man by following the Pre-Law course while preparing himself for McGill's Faculty of Engineering by private study. This did not prevent him from devoting himself wholeheartedly to extra-curricular work. He was an active member of the Sodality of the Blessed Virgin Mary, being received as a candidate in his Junior year, and no one played more energetically for his class in Intra-mural sport. Albert was an industrious student, a devout Catholic and a true Loyola man in every respect. To his bereaved family we offer our most heartfelt sympathies. y wx cw L'Envoi My college days are ending,—drawing nearer is the day, When ГІІ take a look about me and then quietly walk away, But no matter where I wander and no matter what my goal, The spirit of Loyola will be stirring in my soul. I will hear Loyola's Victory Song ringing in my ears, And play again in reverie those games of former years, And dream that I am walking 'cross the campus in the Spring, In the morning, with the sunlight,—and God in everything. I put away the copy books, my souvenirs of Prep. With the Spelling and the Grammar quiz, and to this day I've kept The report cards with the foot-note Application poor , And wonder how my teachers had the patience to endure. I have known the years of High School, with the Latin and the Greek Supplementals in September,—and of strappings I can speak! But sweetest in my memory is the campus in the Spring, In the morning, with the sunlight,—and God in everything. I'll see no more the classroom door, the blackboards and the chalk, Or gather in the smoker with the other lads to talk Of Football in October or Dramatics in the Spring, And the times we've had together, to which our memories cling. O Mother of a Mighty Manhood, Alma Mater yet to be, From Preparatory to Senior, thy sons are proud of thee, Ever more my heart is walking 'cross the campus in the Spring, In the morning, with the sunlight, —and God in everything. ROBERT LINDSAY 44.
