XXI, No. 27 SAN FRANCISCO, APRIL 12, 1940 FRIDAY Junior Week to Begin Tonight by Attendance At Cyrano de Bergerac ATTEND MASS BEFORE SUNDAY'S PICNIC Smoker, President's Day and Junior Prom Complete Glorious Week for Juniors By FRED WOELFEN Collum Elected President of Senior Sodality Tom Duff Assumes Work Of Secretaries Frank Collum '42 stepped into the office of prefect for the Senior Sodality as a result of elections held last week. Collum was opposed by Paul Deibels and Al Lawson. The post of secretary was won by Tom Duff '41, defeating Gene Sullivan for the office. The Sodalists, with retiring prefect Joe Martinelli holding the chair, passed a resolution to limit their membership in the future to twenty upper division students. Father McGrory revealed that a meeting room for the sodalists has been obtained for use next year, and to serve as the focal center of sodality activities. A sodality picnic was planned for April 21 as the final event of the semester's calendar. The duty of providing ushers for the College Player production of Cyrano was given to Al Lawson. Philhistorians Debate With Stanford Junior Class to Attend Monday Evening In Body Presenting the academic side of Junior Week will be the Junior Debate scheduled for Monday night, which will see the All-Junior team of Dick Fenton and Jack O'Brien meet two of Stanford's best representatives on the popular question, "Has the American University Failed?" The topic for debate is of vital interest to every student ot the Univeristy. If college life is not •ucceeding in its end, then we are wasting our time and money in school. If it is shown to be worthwhile, then we who continued in school are right. We can find the answer Monday night. No Cost This debate, an integral part of Junior Week, has a particular appeal in that it is one activity to which Dons can bring their girl friends without any cost to themselves. The debate is contrasted to the smoker Tuesday night, and President's Day, Wednesday, in that it will afford the Juniors and others the chance to show their feminine friends the academic side of the University. The Junior Debaters have proven their abilities on many occasions. As the University's leading debaters, they represented USF in a recent tour of the southern universities. Jack O'Brien is known to the students as the winner of the coveted McKinley Gold Medal for Debating. Dick Fenton, who is now concluding a highly successful year as Debate Manager, has come close to winning the forensic contests on many occasions. Track Star The Stanford Debaters are Stan Anderson, handsome track and football star, and Jack Bates, a topnotch debater. -♦ Tonight the Class of '41 will inaugurate their first Junior Week. Tonight the Juniormen will take in "Cyrano de Bergerac," the College Player's masterpiece. This evening will be Junior Night at the play. Accompanying the debonnaire Juniors tonight will be their girl friends, this affair being strictly a drag affair. Sunday morning the Juniormen will again take to their wings when they journey across the Bay to the Castlewood Country Club for their Junior Picnic. Here the "Seniors to be" will frolic, with their best girl, in an atmosphere of merriment and general good brothership. According to reports the girl friend will supply the lunch basket and the boy friend will eat it. Debate Monday night the Juniors, in conjunction with the Philhistorians, will sponsor the USF vs. Stanford debate. The topic of this annual debate will be: Resolved, That the American University Has Failed. Singular attraction of this forensic gathering will be the appearance of Stan Anderson, Indian footballer, in the role of a debater. From all advance noticee from the Peninsula university, Anderson is just as proficient at debating as he is on the gridiron. Representing the Hilltoppers will be Jack O'Brien and Dick Fenton. * On Tuesday night the '41 men will again grace themselves in a social atmosphere. For on next Tuesday night the Juniors will hold their gigantic smoker. Feature attraction of the evening's entertainment will be Tom Wade, he of "Under Your Hat Fame," and his mighty thesp- ians. Wade reports that his little dramatic group will, in the not too far distant future, rival the College Players as the dramatic society of USF. The Junior Class, however, will have an opportunity to be the first to know whether Wade's statements are true or just his egotism at its height. Wednesday will be President's Day, and every able-bodied Junior will be present at the Ignatian Field, endeavoring to capture the interclass championship for the Class of '41. Thursday and Friday the Juniors will endeavor to recuperate from a strenuous week, so that they will be in tip-top shape for Saturday night. Saturday night the Juniors will present their "better than ever" Junior Prom. With this affair, the First and Traditional Junior Week will close in a blaze of glory and merriment. Ives Club to Elect New Men Voting Is Set for Noon Today in B-4 The remaining weeks of the spring semester will be busy ones for the members of the St. Ives Law Club. Today at noon, in room B4, the selection of new members will take place. Nine vacancies will be open as a result of graduation, and these posts will be filled by the selection of the new candidates. A large field of applicants is on hand, and voting will not be without interest for the posts. The last formal meeting of the semester is scheduled for Wednesday evening, April 24, at which time a guest speaker will address the group and elections of officers for the coming year will be held. Climax of the year's program will be the May initiation program given in honor of the new members of the society. The date of this affair will be Thursday evening, May 16. The site will be announced at a later date. JUNIOR WEEK PROGRAM Tonight, April 12 Junior Night at Cyrano University Auditorium, 8 p. m. Sunday, April 14 Mass in St. Ignatius Chapel, 7:30 Stag Rrcakfast following Mass Class picnic at Castlewood Country Club at Pleasanton Monday, April 15 Intercollegiate debate with Stanford Uni versity; subject: "Has the American University Hailed?" Auditorium, 8:15 Tuesday, April 16 Junior Smoker in University Lounge, 8:15 Wednesday, April 17 President's Day at University Saturday, April 20 Junior Prom at I^ake Merced Country Club Players Score Smash Hit in Latest Vehicle Ferdon Stars in Lead Role As Cyrano; Cast Excellent JUNIORS ATTEND Amidst the fanfare of publicity and the bright glare of large, luminous spotlights, Cyrano de Bergerac was presented to the public this week. The opening night, April 9, was the scene of much bustling activity about the campus. First nighters, resplendent in evening dress, attended en masse, and all indications point towards an unheralded success. It set the dramatic world on fire. It was the most talked about event of its day. They gave its opening more publicity than the opening of the Panama Canal and San Francisco World's Fair combined. "It is the most 'intoxicating' play of modern times," according to Clayton Hamilton, writer of the preface to Brian Hooker's translation. It was at Hamilton's request that Brian Hooker wrote his translation of "Cyrano de Bergerac" for Walter Hampden. Hamilton, who was a noted dramatic critic of his day, claimed that it was the best verse translation of Cyrano. The College Players are using this same Hooker version. This evening is Junior Night at the play. Since the Junior Class is doing all in its power to make this their biggest and best endeavor to date, all juniors are urged to attend. With the attendance at the play tonight of every member of the Junior Class, the success of their week should be a surety. And with the picnic Sunday as the crowning achievement there is no doubt as to the successful variety of their scheduled events. To Give Review Next week, in Wednesday's issue of the paper, a review of Cyrano will be given. The play has had a five- night run. Its opening night was Tuesday, April 9, and it will continue on through till tomorrow night, April 13. P.D.P. Garret Due For Publication Within Two Weeks "The Garret" will be on the campus in two weeks was the announcement today from the officers of the Pi Delta Pi, lower division literary honor society. Final work on the magazine was commenced yesterday by the staff under the leadership of President Bob McCarthy and Editors Ed Boessenecker, Ed Robinson, Joseph Servente and Gene Dunn. In a surprising scoop "The Garret" revealed that Gene O'Meara's Sullivan Contest winning oration, "Freedom of Speech," will appear in the issue. There is also a possibility that the Y. M. I. prize speech, George Whelan's "The White Knight of Finland," may also be included. Both men are sophomore members of the Pi Delta Pi. Literary criticisms accepted were Harry Tucker's "Essay on G. K. Chesterton" and "Edgar Allen Poe, the Genesis of American Genius" by Ed Boessenecker. Outstanding contributions have been received from Ed Robinson, Ken Tichenor, Art Schocnnauer, Fred Woelflen, Curtis Clark and Francis Pacelli, among others, although several contributions are still expected. Although a lower division publication, the only one of this nature, "The Garret" yet boasts three former contributors to the San Francisco "Quarterly" in Art Schoennauer, Curtis Clark and Ed Boessenecker. Wasmanns Hear Doctor Geiger Deadline Close For Entries in Queen Contest Five Days Remaining for Entries to Be Submitted OPEN TO ALL DONS "Control of Rabies" Subject Is Dr. J. C. Geiger, Director of Public Health, City and County of San Francisco, will speak before the Wasmann Biological Society on President's Day. April 17, at 12 noon. As yet the room has not been decided on. Dr. Geiger's subject is "Control of Rabies in California." This lecture will be very interesting because specific cases will be cited from Public Health records. A few weeks ago several members of the W. B. S. had the privilege of witnessing the manner in which rabies serum is obtained, so more knowledge of the subject will be very welcome. This demonstration was also given by Dr. Geiger. But five days remain in which to enter pictures in The Foghorn's Junior Prom Queen Contest. All entries in the contest must be in the hands of Dick Blake, Foghorn editor, or Bill Figari, Junior class president, by Wednesday, April 17, at noon. During the past week pictures have been coming in at a good pace, and interest in the contest is reaching a new high. Open to All However, the committee wishes to remind the students of the University that the contest is open to all, not alone members of the Junior class. The only restriction in the contest is that the picture submitted must be that of a girl who will definitely be at the Prom. Judges for the contest as announced by Blake are Herb Caen of the San Francisco Chronicle, Marsh Maslin of the San Francisco Call-Bulletin, and John Sawnson, prominent almnus of the University and present manager of the Univeristy's Green and Gold Room. All pictures submitted will be turned over to this trio, in whose capable hands the decision rests. As has been stated before, no announcement as to the winning photograph will be made until along about 11 o'clock the evening of the dance. Cup to Winner A beautiful, engraved cup will be presented to the girl deemed by the judges to be the winning contestant. Remember, any type of picture may be submitted as long as the girl will definitely be at the Prom. Pictures must be accompanied by an entry blank found elsewhere in this issue. Senior Book Will Feature Special Designed Cover The senior book of the class of '40 will be presented to the student body on April 20. It will well stand as a model for future graduating seniors, for not only will it be an object of interest but also an article of beauty. The senior book, "Adios," will have a photographic front cover with some phase of the University life. Another good idea is the new type of bookbinding, the spiral, which will be in green and gold. This spiral will insure the book from unbinding and will preserve the looks of the book. Ed McGuirk stated that all proofs and copies have been handed in, and that ISO books are being printed, so that there will be enough books available for the rest of the student body who may wish to obtain options on them. A Senior Book It has been stressed that this is not an annual of the general student body but an annual of graduating seniors. This, however, should not prevent the rest of the student body from contributing their support, in buying up these extra copies. Italians Set For Conference Maraschi Club Host Big Convention at Date of the second Bay Area College Italian Clubs Convention has finally been set for Tuesday, April 23. The executive committee of the convention, after careful consultation with all colleges and university groups, selected this date as the most satisfactory to all concerned. No definite details have been made public, according to Ray Cicerone, president of the Maraschi Italian Club of the University of San Francisco. Schools participating include the University of California, Stanford University, St. Mary's College, Santa Clara, the University of San Francisco, San Francisco State, San Francisco Junior College, Dominican College, and the San Francisco College for Women. Complete details and program for the convention will be announced in next Wednesday's edition of "The Foghorn." ASUSF NOMINATIONS MONDAY . __ . <$> — President's Day Events Close Presidential Race Scheduled for April 17; Finds Blake, Tarantino, Inter-Class Competition Spearman as Candidates TRADITIONAL HOLIDAY HONORS FR. DUNNE COURTNEY, KATZ SEEK VICE-PRESIDENCY Burman, Larkins and Kennedy Run for Secretary; McCarthy, Kimbark, O'Brien, Yell Leaders By FRANK FORD Monday morning nominations for ASUSF offices will be held in the Auditorium at 11 o'clock. This year's list of candidates appears to be an exceptional lot in the way of ability, as shown in the various activities they have followed during their college life. Two new candidates entered the ring during the past week. Trude •^Spearman for the office of president, and Mai McCarthy for yell leader. Track, Field, Boxing, Baseball Among Features; Trophies, Merchandise Orders Are Prizes Featuring a day of track, field and boxing events, the annual President's Day will be held on Wednesday, April 17. The event, which honors the president of the University is an annual function of long tradition. A varied selection of events has been drawn up for the massive athletic program which will surpass all preceding performances. Under the leadership of Harry Katz, assisted by a"^ hard working committee, plans for this gigantic day have been progressing rapidly and except for the finish ing touches, are just about complete. Featured in the track and field events are the 100 yard dash Pentathlon; punting for distance; mile run; broad jump; medley race; passing for accuracy; club relay, 4-man; baseball throw for distance; 100 yard hurdle; 880 yard dash Pentathlon; athletic relay; 440 yard dash; high jump Pentathalon; and the traditional President's Race which is open to Presidents of all clubs and the class presidents. Interclass Events All events are according to interclass competition with the exceptions of the Pentathlon and athletic relay. First place will be awarded 5 points, 3 points for second and 1 point for third. The class winning the most points will be awarded a beautiful trophy cup. Competition between the classes this year should be very keen. The junior class is already being organized, the sophomores have many great stars, the seniors will endeavor to make this their big day because it will be their last chance to participate in such an affair, and what the frosh lack in experience will be made up in talent and spirit. Following the track and field contests, an exhibition of boxing in each of the weight divisions will take place. Also there will be two baseball games this year instead of the usual one. In addition to the regular game between the Seniors and Faculty there will also be a game between the Juniors and Sophomores. A tennis tournament under the direction of Bob Wardell is also scheduled to take place in the afternoon. During the lunch period a bang-up pie eating contest will be staged among the class presidents. This novel attraction promises to be a gorging affair. The odds are even and Jack Smith, Al Larkins, Bill Figari and Ed McGuirk are reported to be practicing secretly for this affair. The sound truck of the Associated Oil Company will be on hand to inform the students of the results of the different athletic events and contests. Pete Breceda will be the master of ceremonies and besides announcing the results will add his own bit to making this part of the program a success. Because Visitor's Day has been canceled for this year, due to the shortening of the term, invitation has been extended to St. Ignatius High School to be the guests of the University on President's Day and the young Wildcats will be allowed to participate in numerous events. Awards Given Every winner will receive an award whether it be a medal, clothes from The Emporium, Roos Bros., Hastings, Selix. Moores; or hotel "comps" for the St. Francis, Sir Francis Drake and Mark Hopkins Hotels. The prizes are on display in the Lounge. Soviet Recognition Gavel, State'Debate By BOB TOMPKINS Debating on the topic, "Resolved: That the United States should rescind its recognition of Soviet Russia," the Gavel Debating Society will close its year's work with San Francisco State as its opponent. The debate will take place on April 27 over the airlanes of KROW from 5 to 5:30 p. m. Because of the present grave international situation the topic is most timely and the discussion should provide a great deal of information for all listeners. In its last radio debate with St. Mary's the Gavel defended the negative of the Third Term Question, being represented by Roddy and Tompkins, while Fenneran and Gunz upheld the affimative for the Gaels. There was no decision given. Concluding the social part of its program the Gavel held a smoker at St. Ignatius High School Auditorium, on April 4. The affair proved to be a great success and was enjoyed by guests from the Philhistorians and the Freshman class officers as well as the members of the societv. Smoker Feature Entertainment at the Smoker was provided by Armand Quartini, Bill Raffetto, Ed Marron, Bill Taylor and Fred Woelflen. Pictures of the USF-Creighton game were shown through the courtesy of Mr. Mcintosh, S.J. After the entertainment a bounteous supply of refreshments were served. The affair was ended with a community sing. During the past two semesters the Gavel has enjoyed its best season in its brief history. Highlights of the year proved to be the two victories over Santa Clara, and the success of the first annual public debate against the Broncos. Many Debates The Society also debated S. F. J. C, Stanford. California and San Francisco State as well as participating in five radio discussions over KROW. The Gavel should be commended for its fine work this year and special praise should be given to Mr. Andrew Boss, S.J., the moderator of the Gavel, for his hard and unselfish efforts on the Society's behalf. Student Body Office To Sell Fair Tickets In the past three days twenty-five tickets to the Fair have been sold at the USF student body office. It was learned that 200 are expected to be sold before the end of this semestn, when the offer will be discontinued by the Universjty. Order Early Tony Tarantino asks that the men of the University place their orders early, as the tickets are ordered only in small lots, for which cash is paid by the University. The price is only $2.50 while the value is $4. Add to that the fact that USF has a definite gain by the student's cooperation and, Tarantino says, there is no reason why at least the planned 200 tickets may not be disposed of. A few of the detractions may again be reviewed. First, there will be the five admissions to the Fair. Plus that, there are given five admissions to leading, uttractions on Treasure Ls- larid, with Billy Rose's Aquacade heading the list, closely followed by the Palace of Fine Arts. Add to this three other admissions to leading attractions of the Fair, and the result is more than worth while. Tickets Transferable It is important to note that these souvenir tickets are transferable, that anyone may use them at any time during the duration of the Exposition on Treasure Island. If plans for a USF Day come through, this means that five students may use the tickets from one book. Again your cooperation is urged. Remember, both you and the University gain by your purchases. Famous Teacher Returns Dr. Edwin F. Albertsworth has attracted national attention recently by prolific writing on the subject of Constitutional Law. During the past week there appeared in the American Bar Association Journal an article entitled "The Constitution—Revised Version," and in the Georgetown Law Journal, which has just arrived, his article "Cancers in the Constitution" is featured. A short time ago his article entitled "Current Constitutional Fashions" elicited much comment. Arrives in May Dr. Albertsworth is expected to arrive some time in May to begin for the School of Law a summer course in Admiralty Law and Labor Disputes in Maritime Affairs. The course is to be of six weeks duration, and will have a three-unit value. It is scheduled for presentation in the early evening from May 27 to July 3. Prof. Gorman Writes Review Chemical Journal Prints Paper in June Another paper from the Department of Chemistry of our University will appear in the early part of June. Professor Gorman has written an article, "A Review on the Interpretation of pH," which has been examined and accepted by the editorial board of the Journal of Chemical Education, a publication of the American Chemical Society devoted to educational problems of chemistry in institutions of higher learning. Explanation The symbol, pH, is a short-hand mathematical device which is designed to express the acidity of solutions. Mr. Gorman's article reviews the origination of the symbol and its electrochemical measurement. Some investigators have sought to apply pH to determine certain chemical quantities of theoretical interest. However, the paper points out the limitations inherent in the measurement of pH prevent such extensions of the meaning of the term. Mr. Gorman closes his review with the observation that notwithstanding its theoretical shortcomings, pH has many practical applications in biology, chemistry and medicine, three fields in which the value of acidity is of utmost importance. SENIOR RINGS All juniors of the University who want to purchase their senior rings are asked to call in at the Associated Students office Monday between 11:50 and 12:15. First orders will be taken at that time. A deposit of three dollars is necessary. A short biography of Spearman as well as other presidential candidates will be found elsewhere on this page. McCarthy is a graduate of St. Ignatius High where he served as head yell leader in his Senior year. At USF he is yell .leader of the Class of '42. "Madcap Mai" is known by one and all for many escapades, all a bit on the daffy side. Trio to Run Presidential candidates are Dick Blake, Tony Tarantino, and Trude Spearman. This race promises to be very close with the winner quite unpredictable. Vice - presidential candidates still the same as announced in the March 15 issue of The Foghorn. Harry "Mike" Katz and Frank Courtney. Katz is a prominent Junior and sports editor of The Foghorn. Courtney is the well-known campus representative of Tilton's.

Yell leader has three men trying for election with Jimmy O'Brien, Jack Kimbark and "Madcap Mai" McCarthy.- McCarthy and Kimbark are for St. Ignatius yell leaders. O'Brien is inexperienced, but according to his publicity agent, John Shea, has plenty of the well-known stuff that makes good yell leaders.
