Don gridders in - - T.I. clash today Dons1 opener slated for 2 p.m. on Treasure Island gridiron By TOM MAGUIRE FOGHORN Sports Editor The University of San Francisco Dons will open their 1958 football season this Friday afternoon as they collide with the Treasure Island Navy eleven. The tilt, slated on the Treasure Island gridiron, will start " at 2:00 p.m. • Day school Enrollment up.3°/o over 1957 The total enrollment at the University of San Francisco for the Fall Semester is 1,658 students. This is a three percent increase over last year. These figures apply only to the Dav Division, as complete figures on the Evening Division are not yet available. Here is the breakdown of the students: Liberal Arts 522, Science 258, Business Administration 418, General Studies 33, School of Nursing 133, Education Department 108. Graduate School 63, School of Law 123. According to Doctor A. P. Donoghue, Director of Admissions, this year's freshman class has excellent academic and leadership possibilities. The number of freshmen at the school is placed around 350 at this time, but exact figures will be available soon. Two-thirds of the freshmen who applied to USF have scored higher than the national norm or average in the College Board Test which is administered to students throughout the country desiring to enter universities. Dr Donoghue explained that this year's freshman class has all the necessary tools to develop into dynamic students. The enrollment this year would have been even greater had it nt»t been for high entrance requirt- <ments and, also, lack of facilities in certain departments of the University. For example, Sister Mary Beata, Dean of the School of Nursing, announced that only 33 nurses could be accepted out of 80 who applied. Also encouraging. Dr. Donoghue said, is the growth in the increase of the Graduate School and the Department of Education. Under the direction of Dr. Edward J. Griffin. Chairman of the Education Department, Don Coach Robert "Sarge" Mac Kenzie described the Treasure Island squad as a "very formidable foe." He pointed out that although the Navy eleven was defeated by the San Francisco Sta'te J.V.'s last week, they will be reinforced for the USF clash with 25 additional players from the San Francisco Naval Yard, who did not field a team this season. • Race to Get Ready MacKenzie found himself in a "race to get ready" for this Friday's meet at T. I. The Green and Gold squad have only been practicing for nine days, while the Treas ure Island team has been working out for over a month. The Dons will be sparked by se lected players from each of the University's three intramural teams — the Caballeros, Vigilantes and the Grey Fog—and with a record turnout of over 50 men, the Dons will be well stocked. Four Leaders The Dons will be led Friday by cadtains Ed Griffin, Mike Gregor, Bill Ferrero and Jim MacDonald, who have all been in the USF intramural system since its beginning in 1956. Friday's clash will kick-off USF's third year of organized football since the 1951 crisis. In 1956, under "Sarge" MacKenzie, the Uni versity initiated a football intra mural system, which formed three teams and drafter players similar to the pro system. In 1957 the intramural system expanded and-found the Dons play ing two outside games with the San Francisco J.S.'s. This year the Green and Gold eleven will face four outside opponents. Along with Treasure Island, they will face the Cal Aggie J.V.'s, and twice fight the San Francisco J.V.'s. Father Moore new moderator Rev. Francis A. Moore, S.J., has been appointed FOGHORN moderator, Rev. John F. X. Connolly, S.J., University President, announced last week. Fr. Moore replaces Rev. James Menard, S.J., who has been assigned to duties in Phelan Hall. Fr. Menard held the position since 1956. Fr. Moore is also Dean of Students. Snake bites Jesuit, dies Fr. Austin Morris, S.J., former prefect on the third floor of No- bili Hall and instructor in the Law School, was bitten by a rattlesnake this summer at the Jesuit Villa in Applegate, near Sacramento. He was taken to Mercy Hospital in Sacramento, where his condition stayed critical for a couple of days. Well on his way to recovery, Fr. Morris is expected back at Santa Clara shortly, where he will stay in the Infirmary. (Reprinted in toto from The Santa Clara, student newspaper of the University of Santa Clara.) Brooks Brothers blue blazers slated for USF Mr. Phillip Hughes, Director of Public Information, announced yes terday that University Blazers will go on sale within three weeks. The sport coat, similar to those worn at all eastern colleges, will be sold by Brooks Brothers of San Francisco for approximately $34. The navy blue blazer will fea ture a choice of brass or blue shell buttons, and will sport the University emblem—green on a gray back ground. The blazer will be available only to those students who have an ASUSF student-body card, and the card must be shown at the time of purchase, Hughes said. Dons will sit behind hoop at opener Legislature recommends Maraschi Hall; hassles over 'mixer' meaning USF students will sit behind the south basket at the opening basketball game in the new Memorial Gymnasium December 4, the Student Legislature decided Friday. The motion was presented by Frank Trumbower, senior class president, who proposed the move in order to cooperate with the-Development Office's plan to sell tickets for the opening tilt at $10 each. The Development Office hopes to make $40 to $50 thousand from ticket sales, and to accommodate the ten-dollar ticket holders, the students will root from behind the basket. This situation will exist only for the opening game, Trumbowc*' stated. Student admission for the i ontest will be 50c. Maraschi Hall? In other business of the first legislative meeting of the year, unanimous approval was given a motion by Junior Rep. Joe DiGregorio which asked the ASUSF to recommend to the administration that the name of the Liberal Arts Building ' • changed to Maraschi Hall, honoring the founder of the University —Rev. Anthony Maraschi, S.J. The recommendation does not mean any official action will be taken, though the ASUSF goes officially on record as being behind such a move. Unanimous approval was also given to Bob DuRard's motion that the ASUSF co-sponsor, with the Philhistorian Debating Society, a high school leadership day and speech tournament in November. The biggest controversy of the meeting arose from Charlie Frac- cniVs'niolion tharrtne -worn yMfx" er"?be not used in' describing the ADS sponsored dance at Phelan Hall October 3. "Mixer," Fracchia stated, "uni. versally denotes a free dance," while there will be an admission price charged for the ADG dance. After some discussion, the body decided that no confusion as to price would arise from the use of mixer" in advertising the dance if the advertisements clearly mentioned the price, and that not using the word might add to the confusion by making people think the affair was an ordinary "couples —Continued on Page 2 NFCCS stag Saturday nite The annual NFCCS All-College Mixer sponsored by the nine Bay Area colleges will be held this Saturday evening from 9:00 to 1:00 at St. Mary's Hall, Van Ness at O'Farrell. The theme is "Enchanted City.' Dancing will be by Dick Baily and his band. The Pipes, "a highly re garded singing group from USF" according to Mike McCabe, dance chairman, will entertain. A dance queen will be picked from those girls attending the dance, and a pair of tickets to the S.F. 49er-Chicago Bear game on October 26th will be given as a door prize. Dress is sport suit and tie, and admission is one dollar. McCabe says, "New attractions, such as the queen contest and the pair of 49er tickets we are giving away, plus fine entertainment give us hopes of exceeding the 1400 record attendance of last year." It's '30' for tabloids Today the FOGHORN returns to its traditional eight column standard format after a typographical experiment in tabloid size for three issues. The skimpy, "bite-size" paper was ill-accepted. The students didn't like it. Our subscribers didn't like it. The editors didn't like it. Green and Gold room hashers complained they couldn't line the garbage cans with it! : A final blow to the tabloid trial came after the observation £hat the FOGHORN was beginning to look like such rutty tabloids as the Daily Californian and the Saint Mary's Collegian. . This, along with the garbage vans, was too much. No war will develop in l i Formosa area * Dr. Brandon By FRED DIPMAN »"The current Far Eastern crisis fll not develop into either a lim- war or World War III," Dr. Donald Brandon, Assoc. Professor of Political Science said yesterday. Brandon said, however, "There is always the danger in this sort of situation that a miscalculation by either side could precipitate armed conflict." ' Dr. Brandon recently returned from two years of service with the American Embassy in Bonn. "Communist China's intentions appear to assert a new claim to a seat in the United Nations Security Council, to demonstrate her Big Power status, and to put pressure .on the United States for American recognition of the Red Bgsme." Prof. .Brandon said,# gS5 attacks on Quemoy are also^ ot' course, a part of Peipin's eanV paign to undermine the Nationalist government on Formosa," he added. As for President Eisenhower's position, Dr. Brandon said, that appeasement will only lead to new expansionist attempts by an aggressor power and history supports his stand. "The crucial question is whether or not Quemoy and the other offshore islands are vital to the defense of Formosa and the Pescadores," the young educator said.

'blooper" at Brussels By KEVIN STARR "The United States has failed to take advantage of the tremendous opportunity offered by the Brussels World Fair. This conclusion was the obvious one, and the one I left with." That was the disappointed note upon which Doctor Donald R. Campbell, associate professor of history at the University, viewed the Brussels World's Fair in retrospect. Doctor Campbell has been in Europe during the summer with Continued on Page 6 USF's summer session abroad, and No Homecoming Ferrera decides ASUSF President Bob Ferrera said yesterday there would be no homecoming celebration this year. "As much as I would like to have a homecoming this year, it just isn't feasible," Ferrera explained. "For one thing, the alumni simply aren't coming home until March. Also, the weekend we had planned for the celebration, Dec. 5th and 6th, has no home basketball game. The game on Saturday night, the 6th, is in Berkeley. It would be most difficult to get the alumni back to campus from Berkeley 'or the after-game carnival. Besides, it would be too near the gym dedication," he said. Ferrera.cited the gym dedication at the end of November as the biggest evtyit of the fall semester. Plans call for a day-long celebration, speeches by civic Fr. D'Arcy sees intellectual revival of college students BY WARREN HINCKLE FOGHORN Managing Kditor The former rector of Campion Hall in Oxford considers today's generation of American college undergraduates a smouldering Vesuvius that will soon erupt into a flaming intellectual revival in the United States. Father Martin D^Arcy, S.J., one of England's leading intellectuals, resided in San Francisco this summer as a visiting professor at the University summer session. The English Jesuit does not subscribe to the current theory that American undergraduates today lack the fire and vigor, the intellectual curiosity and enthusiasm of their counterparts of the 20's and 30's. This very accusation was MARTIN D'ARCY, Eruption? S.J. voiced at the recent NFCCS national convention here. A wave of criticism has recently been released against college students by the liiciary maga/,inis and reviews, charging them with 'diploma-seeking' and a conservatism that frustrates intellectual spontaneity. "This is definitely not my experience," Fr. D'Arcy said. Fr. D'Arcy came to USF from Georgetown Univeristy where he has been lecturing in the philosophy department. He returned to the East coast institution early this month and will remain there for two semesters. His trip back to England is scheduled for next summer. Fr. D'Arcy found the under- officials, and a professional show. A Mardi Gras, similar to last year's homecoming, is schdeuled for Feb. 6th and 7th. "The emphasis this year will be on student body enjoyment. It will not be primarily a fund raising event," Ferrera said. There will be a Mardi Gras queen contest, games, and two jazz combos; one upstairs in Phelan Hall dining room, and one downstairs in t. i Green and Gold Room. Tentative plans also call for a scholarship drive, a big name dance, and a lecture series of professional caliber. "The policy of student government," Ferrera said, "will be to sponsor events' of quality, not mere quantity, the idea being that a progressive program does not necessitate a crowded agenda." The ASUSF president said he is also inaugurating a policy of keeping the student body offices open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. every day. "If anybody has cojnplaints, recommendations, or suggestions, they can see us in our office and we can help them," Ferrera stated. He also pointed out that student government covers a wider scope than just planning social activities. "It permeates every field of student body interests," he said. "And, contrary to popular opinion, the Jesuits aren't fighting us, they are working with us." Boyer August, ASUSF vice president and social chairman, said thereare two mixers, both on campus, coming up in October: the A.D.G. mixer on Oct. 3, and the Wassmann-Bio-Chem spook dance on October 31. Seniors meet Thursday There will be a meeting of the Senior Class on Thursday, October 2, at 10 a.m., class president Frank Trumbower announced yesterday. Senior class elections for class representative will be held October 1st —Continued on Page 6 with the final election on Oct. 3. his comments on America's "blooper" at Brussels ran rapidly. "Every nation at Brussels was there for one reason only—to sell themselves and their way of life. Most did a good job, but, as you probably know, the United States Pavillion has come under severe criticism both in our own press and that of other countries, and most Americans have run, one time or another, up against these adverse observations. I'm afraid I have to agree with all the disparaging remarks," he said. Lack of depth Lighting a cigarette, Dr. Campbell continued: "Everyone at the Fair admits that the building in which the United States exhibits are housed is perhaps the most beautiful, both interiorly and exte riorly; b-t after this, most compli ments usually cease. Now I could criticize the exhibits by listing them, but I feel that the inade quacy of our exhibits can best be demonstrated by noting what o me seemed to have been quite ab sent *rom our exhibits—depth. "The exhibits of the other na tions demonstrated those values and ideals which the nation concerned felt are most representative of the people of that country. F^r example, in the French pavilion I found exhibited not merely the commercial and industrial products in which the French take pride, but also exhibits devoted to French literature, French theatre, French education, and the role of religion in French life. The total effect was ) convince visitors that these were things which the French treasured and which they viewed —Continued on Page 2 Lee Avallone wins top Freshman post Lee Avallone took his seat this week as president of the Freshman class. Runner up was John Walsh. Frank Foehr squeezed in as vice president by a three vote margin over Frank Calaianni. Don Hengehold edged nurse Molly Anderson in the secretary- treasurer race; this left only nurse Terri Stadler, who is contesting Ar- mand Vasquez, Ken Lovette, and Dave McAullife in the representative derby. « Final elections for the two class representatives will be held October 3. Chamber of Commerce audience hears Father President discuss higher education By KATHIE McDONNELL FOGHORN Stall Writer "To have been a place of light, liberty, and learning, and to have »exemplified an alternative pattern of higher education are among the real justifications of the University of San Francisco's 104 years of Text of Father Connolly's speech on Page 2 - existence," the Rev. John ¥. X. Connolly, S.J., University President, told a Chamber of Commerce luncheon audience honoring USF's 104th year of educating the City's youth. Mayor George Christopher, Senator Thomas H. Kuchel, and Congressman John F. Shelley were among the political dignitaries present at the fete. In discussing the different schools in a university, Father President said that the "ultimate unity" binding the avenues of learning together is truth. There are fields of law, of arts, of medicine, and the like, he explained, because man seeks truth by many avenues. Private school dip On the subject of dwindling enrollments in private universities, father ConnoWy cited the findings of the Rockefeller Fund Report, "that instead of registering their traditional 50 per cent of all university students, private Universities will soon have only 25 per cent. This trend, he declared, may result "in a waning of influence of non-tax-supported institutions" and leads toward "the dangers of a day when the state-controlled institution will dominate, when there are no alternativve patterns of thought, when diversity of ideas will have almost disappeared." Answering the often asked question whether universities must lo-3 sight of the "purpose as a university in the midst of all the modern specialized training," Father Connolly told the assembled public officials and leaders of labor, industry, and the professions that "in offering increased services to the community, universities need not repudiate their original and timeless mission." While preserving the cultural heritage of the past, it must adapt if~°lf to the needs of its day, and also must anticipate the needs of future days. Senator Kuchel attacked Proposition 16, declaring that it would be a mistake for California to tax private elementary and secondary schools. The luncheon" honoring USF's 104 years of service was sponsored jointly by the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, the Commercial Club, and the USF Alumni Association. 445 couples at Welcome Dance The Welcome Dance, held last Friday night at the Surf Club was termed, "a huge success" by Boyer August, social chairman. August said that the dance, which earned $613, "was a success due to the cooperation of the committee." He added that the dance, attended by 445 couples, was "unique," in that there wasn't any damage. Special Events TODAY—Concluding retreat exercises. TOMORROW—Football, T. I.
