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.

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.

LOYOLA COLLEGE Page 4 REVIEW MAJOR DANIEL CHARLES YOUNG lw death of Major Young, who was wounded in the legs and chest during the battle for Ortona, brought to an end a distinguished military career that had started e Bol years before. He joined an Eastern Townships unit, Ayer's Cliff Cavalry Regiment, at the age of thirteen, and had taken qualification examinations in artillery, cavalry and infantry. Although keen on track meets and football at college, and well known as a skier, his chief interest always lay with his militia. He became a cavalry officer with the Royal Canadian Dragoons at St. Johns, entered the Small Arms School at Ottawa, and took the Artillery course at Petawawa, so that he was quali- fied as a major at the age of twenty-three although he did not hold that rank till he was twenty- seven. At the outbreak of the war he left the Canada Cement Company to go on active service. He was then a major in the Duke of York's Hussars, but transferred with a reduction in rank to lieutenant to the Royal Twenty-Second Regiment of Quebec. He went overseas with the rank of captain and then went to Sicily with the invasion forces where he obtained his majority fifteen days before he was wounded. Major Young climaxed his career by relieving Major Paul Triquet, V.C., during his heroic stand at Moro, December 14th to 19th. In Major Triquet's own words: “The Germans were everywhere, and five hundred yards from our objective, where we ran short of ammunition, we were stopped by heavy, accurate mortar fire. We held until reinforcements arrived. Those rein- forcements were headed by Major Young. This stand at Moro made possible the Ortona cam- paign, but was the occasion of Charles suffering severe wounds. Confined to a military hospital in Italy for more than a month, he failed to respond to treatment, and died a day or two before his 31st birthday. Attesting his popularity with his men, fellow officers and friends are the six hundred Masses said for him in all parts of the world. R.I.P. x Ж P O. WILLIAM E+ M«NICHOLL, R«C,A.F.,, 42 Tus four years that Bill McNicholl spent at Loyola, 1934-1938, gave an inkling of the manly spirit and leadership that were to come to the fore as Captain of his crew. Bad weather € him and his men to make a forced landing off the coast of Newfoundland in mid-winter. A letter from Bills chaplain, Fr. Metayer, vividly portrays his excellent character and spirit. The letter in part reads: Bill was an excellent Catholic and he received communion a few days before the accident in which he lost his life with seven of his companions. God did not take their lives violently but after days at sea on a raft. His Providence, no doubt, wanted them to be best prepared for their eternity. As Captain of his crew Bill was certainly conscious of his responsibility and we know after the messages they were sending, he was cheering up the others—that he made them all pray. Speaking of servicemen who thus give their lives Fr. Metayer said: They do not leave us forever but remain with us. They are not in the dark but we still are, they actually live their true lives while we e ourselves to die. The dead are invisible, they are not absent. They look upon us with eyes filled with eternal glory, they see actually their mother’s eyes and their father’s eyes burnt with tears and they are very close to them because these tears shed with Christian resignation were the cause of a shortened Purgatory before entering into the eternal glory. I've lost with Bill not only a friend but the real type of man we need so much in the Armed Forces we need so much nowadays. Masses have been said for those boys and your son here in my chapel. We shall not forget them. R.I.P.
