Win-Lose-Or-Draw-We'll Meet You Under The Ferry Building Clock Don't let them ever tell you that the spirit of the Dons isn't what it used to be. It isn't something you can touch or see—but it's there. In one of the daily papers last week thc following statement by Clipper Smith was printed. "Say, wasn't that a swell send-off the students gave our men last night at the Ferry Building. I really didn't expect it and neither did the players. We had lost two games in a row, and if only a handful of students had, bothered to come downtown, I could have understood their disappointment. ''But, holy smoke, hundreds of boys and girls turned out, and part of the band. The players certainly were impressed. And grateful, too. If we don't beat Missis sippi Stale on Saturday it won't be for lack of spirit and, encouragement. I want the University of San Francisco students bach- home to know the players and myself appreciate their presence on the ferry boat and at the Oakland mole, (heir songs and cheers and, music. Believe me, it all helps!" Those fighting Dons are coming back tomorrow ■morning. Yeah, we knot:'—it'll be cold and, that bed is so tvarm in the morning-but we're, all going down to that Ferry Building at 7:50 a.m. and give those guys a welcome home that will make their sendoff look like a boy beating a broken drum. We don't want them to say there were hundreds of Don students at the depot. TWO THOUSAND GUYS GO TO THIS SCHOOL. There should be thousands down there tomorrow morning. And don't 'worry about those classes—you'll hare plenty of time to mala thi m. When the learn gels home, there will be a ear parade with police escort up Market Street—to let the early risers know that the Fighting Dons are back in town. > And that reception goes—WIN OR LOSE. We read in the papers thai the people of Boston didn't bother to have a reception when they found out the lied, Sox lost the World, Series. Up here on the hill—we're going down and meet those guys whether we win a smashing victory or get smeared all oner the green grass of Memphis. Wherever you go in the days following your college you'll find Dons. They're ihe guys that are getting ahead in the world of owes, because they have that spirit that never dies. In the cold grey dawn—tomorrow morning—we'll see you under the Ferry Building clock—bring your cow bells—your noise -makers—the band will be 1h< re to warm up the chilly morning with hot music—and we'll sing the Don victory song. . . . AND THE PEOPLE OF THE CITY BY THE GATE WILL KNOW THAT THE DON SPIRIT WILL NEVER DIE. Oh oLlahth '9' loaSe <MWWyywy^yyywywyyyyyyN<^^ By THE EDITOR Extra-curricular and social activities are a necessary part of everyone's collegiate life. This is admitted by all University heads. The Activities Committee of the ASUSF has lined up one of the most ambitious social calendars of all time while the extra-curricular program for all organizations has been well developed. Dances, receptions, intramurals are all well and good and will be of immense benefit to those participating. But these events will not embrace all of the students at the same time. The affairs are restricted a first come first served basis. However, there is one thing lacking here at the Hilltop. The thing needed is some kind of program which will not only be available to all, but which will bear the greatest fruit. This mass participation activity we are talking about would be effected by some kind of drive or campaign. Each class and club in the college should have some definite part in the project. Perhaps it is too soon for individual classes and clubs to sponsor some sort of venture, but certainly the school can afford to initiate some kind of drive. This project will have many advantages and will be a natural complement to the social and extra-curricular efforts of the students. Probably the most famous recent undertaking of the Hilltop was the campaign to purchase a jeep with saving stamps in February, 1942. Originally, plans called for tho acquirement of one jeep, but the students responded so magnificently that three jeeps were in the offing. But the final week of the drive saw such a large flurry of stamp purchases that the total number of jeeps soared to the unheard number of 20 — that's right — twenty jeeps. Who can forget that thrill which overswept the assembled students on a cold morning in March when Mal McCarthy shouted into the microphone: "Here they come, men, the jeeps which your bonds bought. All 20 of them purchased by you, the students of the Hilltop." As his words echoed the length of the ROTC parade ground, the jeeps roared across the field in battle formation. It was a sight that became indelibly stamped in the minds of the students who had participated in the the "Buy a Jeep Campaign." The success of the scheme had been largely due to the interest shown by all the organizations of the college. When the total sales had been added, it was the St. Ives Law Club, one of the Hilltop's most esteemed societies, which led the way, followed closely by the Wassman Society. This is further proof of what cooperation can obtain. Not only had the war effort been enhanced by the sacrifices of hundreds of Dons, but the Hilltop was to receive national publicity, recognition on a level which had hardly been attained by its gTeatest athletic teams. All the local papers followed up the story, and people in the Bay area suddenly realized that there . was a college here which stood for much more than the usual college rah-rah spirit. Prior to the jeep enterprise, U.S.F. had . undertaken other projects, many of which went un- publicized. Three separate trips were maac to the blood bank in the Spring of 1942 when blood plasma was (as it still is) urgently n e cdctl for the armed forces. Warren White, the guiding genius of tli e movement, so capably handla.l this venture that reg ular bus service was instituted between the campus and the blood banfc. Oxer 80 per cent of the students donated their bload, many for the second and third times. Argum ?uts may arise that these plans weie perfectly justi- U'onUiwkcd on Page 1, Col. 1) OFFICIAL PUBLICATION OF THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS f UNIVERSITY OF SAN FRANCISCO The Foghorn will meet the Omicron Epsilon tomorrow at 12:30 on the Uni-. versity football field. All members of the Foghorn club are requested to' report on the field not later than 12:15 to captain Don Farbstein. Vol. 33, No. 4 SAN FRANCISCO, OCTOBER 22, 1946 Tuesday CONSTITUTIONAL CHANGE URGED BY EXEC COUNCS Amendment Would Up Board Of Student Control Membership By a unanimous vote, the Executive Council of the University of San Francisco accepted the proposal of the Board of Student Control for an amendment to the Constitution at their second meeting of the semester in the Semeria room last Friday. The amendment would be known as Article XIX and says the B.S.C. shall be supplemented by two additional members with a class standing of sophomore or higher. This would increase the membership to a total of six. In addition, a sub-committee of the B.S.C. shall be formed. This would include 12 members with the same policing powers as the regular members, but would not hold the judicial status of the regular members. The committee would be chosen by the B.S.C. head at the beginning of the fall semester. RALLY REPORT GIVEN Student Body Prexy Dan O'Brien started the wheels in motion while the actual work will be begun by Don Farbstein, ASUSF secretary. The amendment will be put in the form of a ballot in the near future for the students to vote upon. The Exec committee also approved the action of Gene Murray in regard to sponsoring a Community Chest rally here. This will be subject to the approval of Father President. Terry McGuire, chairman • of the Santa Clara rally and dance, gave a report with two things being voted upon: the chartering of special buses for various colleges around the Bay area was voted down while the. other set the time of the dance from 9 to 1. A debate ensued on the formals allotted to the college by the faculty. The first formal, the Soph Drag, is slated for Wednesday, December ii, but this is still in the planning stage. Several sites were mentioned but none agreed upon. NAMES COMMITTEES O'Brien named Kevin Crowley and Frank Falls to head a committee to look into the matter of keeping the Green and Gold Room tidy. This was editorially recommended in the last issue of the Foghorn. Several minor motions were carried, the most important being the allotting of a petty cash fund to O'Brien, and approving the Dominican Reception fund. Earlier Gerry Kilday, ASUSF treasurer, had given a report on the financial status of the school. Missing from the meeting were Andre Chicourrat, Maurice Evans and .lohn Riordan. KUivEli U.S.F. leads the way—Last week the ground was broken for the erection of pre-fabricated buildings on the campus. These buildings, which were- given to the University by the Federal Works Agency under the Mead Act, will house 12 new classrooms. On hand for the ceremonies were -lames W. Follin, Assistant Administrator, Federal Works Agency, from Washington, D.C., Wright L. Felt. Division Engineer for the Bureau of Commodity Facilities: Father William Dunne, Colonel LaRhett Stuart, and Robert McCarthy, contractor under whom the project will be completed. U.S.F. was the first Bay Area University to start construction on such structures. ROTC GREEN AND GOLD ROOM REVAMPED Because of the tremendous influx of students and the great number crowding the Green and Gold Room, a new section to the lunch counter has been added. This new section, which extends from the end of the old counter along the wall to the north-eastern corner to thc windows is expected to alleviate a great deal of congestion. Thc additional counter will be ready to serve customers today, it was announced. Students are expected to obtain all sandwiches at the new counter while the old one will continue to serve shakes and sodas. Both Anna and Tony of the Green and Gold Room believe thai the new counter will all( viate much of the congestion. AMBITIOUS PLAN ANNOUNCED FOR THE HILLTOP UNIT Members of the University's Corps of Cadets last week were completely immersed in the new postwar training program now in effect, and students interviewed at random expressed favorable opinions. Probably among the most important changes in the program was the reduction of thc weekly drill time to one hour. Revision of the theory classes and bringing them up to a level suitable for college men was also hailed by many as being significant of the impotranee which the War Department is according University R.O.T.C. training. . Members of the new advanced course were still completing arrangements insofar as physical examinations and the selection of uniforms was concerned. The uniform decided upon will be the new Shade 33 O.D. which is now officially designated as the prescribed officers uniform. A battle jacket will replace the blouse. It is expected thai the students will sign contracts this week. MASS HONOR GUARDS Reorganization of the cadet battalion has been effected with members of the two advanced courses, all veterans, serving in Ihe officer posts.

Total figures are 324 students, with 220 registered in the day classes and 104 attending night classes. At this time last year the day division had 27 students while the night classes were larger with 42 for a combined total of 69 students. Registrar, Miss Proctor, an-^' nounced this term has seen the return of former U.S.F. students, who had left the school when called to the armed forces or for various reasons. Some of the students that have returned include: Albert Cornin, Bill Wall, Burton Paioretty, Frank Preston, Robert A. Lom- bardi and Margaret Sullivan. It was also announced that present students are more serious about their studies than in previous years. The present mortality rate (failures) has decreased from 25 per cent enrollment to about 5 per cent in the last two years. "The examinations arc just as tough as in former terms so the only conclusion that can be drawn is that the students are working harder," Dean Hogan said. SEVERAL NEW COURSES* Dean Edward A. Hogan Jr. also announced that several new courses had been added -to thi1 Lav, School curiculum. The Graduate Department was added to the regular law school curriculum at the beginning of the fall semester. A course in Debtor's Estates is being offered by August B. Rothchild, who was associated with the University for1 a number of years. A course in Trade Regulations is being offered by Win. Bryant Spohn, who joined the faculty for the purpose of offering the course. A course in Jurisprudence is being offered by Rev. Dr. Albert C. Corcoran, S.J. Dean Hogan also announced the addition of many other instructors to the siaff who include: George Helmen, William J. Dowling, Edward L. Merica, Stanley Walsh, .John F. Duff, Richard O'Connor, Richard W. Dickenson, Thomas M. Mulvihill, .John F. O'Dea, Joseph E. Tierney, Henderson Wallace and Joe i\ Kelley of the Santa Clara Faculty who is a visiting professor. Elizabeth Anne Quigley is now the full time law librarian. iS.^>oC» RICHARDS VOTE HEAD OF BOARD; PLANS COMPLETI The Board of Student Control expects one of its most successful years in this, the Fall term of 1946. William Richards has been appointed as its chief and his associates on thc Board will be: Hal Jensen, Charles Willin, and Kenneth McLennan'. "The greatest thing needed for our success is the whole hearted cooperation of thc entire student body," said Richards. He continued, "I'd first like to make clear our position as the Board of Student Control. According to Hilltop tradition liberal powers of self-government in all extracurricular activities wore delegated to the Associated Students. "The reason for this is to develop among students a habit of manly self-reliance and initiative, a sense of responsibility and a spirit of whole-hearted co-operation with the administration in promoting the best interests of the University of San Francisco. Now. the governmental laws of the Associated Students, are carried out by the Board of Student Control. The laws of the Associated Students are YOl'11 laws, and the enforcement of ths>sc laws, which is the BSC, is YOUR enforcement.

The structures, prefabricated steel hospital units, will increase the University's veterans' educational facilities by providing seventeen additional classrooms, chemistry laboratories, and chemistry lecture rooms.

Fell, Division Engineer of the Bureau of Community Facilities FWA; Rev. Raymond T. Feely, S.J., Dean of the University, and Robert McCarthy, prominent San Francisco contractor under whose direction the project will be completed, and Edward A. llosan, Dean of Law School, ami Col. La Rhett Stuart, Commandant of the USF R.O.T.C. unit. The demountable metal buildings were shipped in "packages" from Lathrop, California, and represent the first 'actual grant under the Federal Works. Agency's California Program'. Work on the project at other schools will be rushed to meet the requirements of unprecedented student registration. The Veterans' Educational Facilities program, which parallels the temporary housing program carried out by the National Housing Agency, was authorized when Congress appropriated $75,000,- 000 and directed the Federal Works Agency to carry out its provisions. The University of San Francisco is the first of many institutions in Mr. Felts District, which includes Arizona, Nevada, California, and Hawaii, which will receive surplus war buildings. FWA COVERS COLLEGES "Many colleges and universities found they had met only a part of the need when student housing was provided," Mr. Felt stated, "because they didn't have enough classroom, laboratory, and office space. This lack was so acute that it threatened to cause the turning away of three out of every ton veterans seeking to continue their education. "The law authorizes the FWA to provide and equip temporary classrooms, laboratories, dining rooms, infirmaries, administrative offices, and other non-housing facilities to enable universities to care for veterans seeking to take advantage of the educational opportunities under Title II of the Servicemen's Readjustment Act of 1944. "This act includes all non-profit colleges, universities, technical, and vocational schools which are now furnishing educational training to veterans. have their individual pictures taken soon. Arrangements are now under wav with several photographic studios anil a contract will be signed in the near future. Group, class and club pictures will not be taken for several mouths. Business, Circulation Posts Open, Says Editor Gene Murray The nucleus of the Hilltop year book staff has been completed with only a few more members needed for other key positions, Gene Murray, editor of the Don, announced this week. Robert Riordan, Peter Lojo, James B. Stephens and Phil Hughes will assist Murray oh the editorial staff. All these men have had wide experience in all types of writing, especially features and photographic makeup. Lojo is a former editor of the Foghorn, while Riordan served a term as feature editor. In addition to these men, Murray reported that Ray O'Brien would handle the activities section of the yearbook while Dick Raffetto would be one of the artists. Stephens will be the sports editor. CONTACT MURRAY Bill Larkins, Chester Torres, and Pete Sokolowski will be the photographers who will photograph the main themes and picture portraits. However, Murray emphasized that there are still positions open on the staff for interested men. Writers will be needed in many capacities while more artists, cartoonists, business heads and photographers are also wanted. Murray also sounded a call for men interested in the circulation and advertising end of the yearbook. These men should contact Murray immediately. There will be a photograph contest open to members of the student body not directly connected with the yearbook. Two ten-dollar prizes will be awarded, one to the student turning In the most pictures and one to the student turning in the best candid. Candid shots may cover any phase of Hilltop campus or social activities. INDIVIDUAL SHOTS Although it is not advisable, negatives may be handed in to the editorial staff.
