<W¥V¥y^WW>W<WIWWWW>«WWWW> Oh, oLlahth '9 ouSe VyW¥¥¥<ffr^^^rV^Wr^r^r^WrV» By the editor National Catholic Press Month is being celebrated during the month of February at which time the Foghorn will join with the other Catholic publications throughout the country in endorsing the movement. The primary function of this year's movement is to acquaint all Catholics with their local Catholic publications and to make them conscious of the best in Catholic writing. This can be best accomplished by publicizing the work of the various diocesan papers. For the San Francisco diocese, the official organ is the Monitor, one of the best Catholic weeklies in America. The Monitor is joining with other diocesan papers in American to bring itself into the homes of all Catholics. The Bay Area Catholic College papers will also be doing much to successfully initiate the movement. A special issue has been set aside by each wherein full coverage will be given to the major aspects of the Catholic Press. A well-informed Catholic population is the best safeguard against those who are trying to undermine its roots. * * * Several months ago we wrote something about the deplorable condition of the road at the northern end of the campus. Since that time the ruts have multiplied and gotten deeper. And to make things worse, the road has definitely become a hazard to the students who use the road to enter or leave the campus. It takes very careful presence of mind, not to say expert driving ability to negotiate the short road. Fully SO per-cent of the cars parked on the campus use thc road, but there has been no effort on the part of anyone to remedy the defective strip of road. The few dollars expended for clearing up of this driving hazard /"^"fwill not be much in the face of ^Siat could happen. Must a terrible accident occur before we awaken to the fact that a few dollars can save a lot of anguish? * * * There has been some comment among students as to why the B. of S. C. doesn't do something about the conditions in the Green and Gold Room. The answer is simple, the B.S.C. has no jurisdiction over the Green and Gold Room, so that thc condition of the cafeteria depends on all Dons who use its facilities. Everyone knows that Tony and his crew have to take time off from their other duties to sweep the room many times each day, due to the carelessness of a few students. Posters have been posted, and much publicity has been given to several campaigns to keep the Green and Gold Room in a presentable condition, but all this to no avail. There is only one solution, and that is to place the matter into the hands of the Board of Stu' dent Control. They would look af^ter the lunchroom in much the same manner tliey now take care of the no smoking regulation. Warnings would be given to students who break the rules, with fines being meted out to those who persist in flagrantly abusing the privileges of the Green and Gold Room.

He had been confined to Notre Dame Hospital with a heart ailment for some time. Solemn Requiem Mass was offered last Thursday morning at the University. Hundreds of prominent San Franciscans, all former pupils and friends of Father Buckley during his long teaching career, attended the Mass in the University Church. Rev. Cornelius A. Buckley, S.J. He had served on the faculties of U.S.F., Santa Clara, St. Ignatius High School, and the Jesuit Novitiate at Los Gatos. In recent years he was spiritual director of the Jesuit community at U.S.F. and of the several other religious communities throughout the Bay Area.

Run Wednesday Large Throng On Hand Last Night The Western premiere of "The Late George Apley" opened a three day i.'un and possibly longer in the "University of San Francisco Auditorium last night before a near- capacity crowd. It was the initial effort of the University's College Players, the drama organization which has been dormant since the Fall of 1942. Due to a revised seating arrangement by Director James J. Gill, the auditorium was able to hold over five hundrsd and fifty persons. Showing of the production will be continued tonight and tomorrow night. Gill also stated that if tickets continue to be sold at the present rate, additional showings may be necessary later in the week. This type of play was a novelty for the University. It was one of the few times that an off-set stage was used. The stage itself depicted a late nineteenth century Boston mansion, in very heavy and rich taste. The leads in the n-lay were handled by Peter MacCabe as George Apley, and Barbara Le Fevre as his wife, Catherine Apley. The supporting cast included, Elizabeth Sherwood, James Gill Jr., Janet Bryner, John Finnegan, Maureen Woods, Joseph Laharty, Helen Ann Davis, Lorraine Harrington, and Justin P. Smith. The comic relief of the play was introduced by Alice Buckley, Daniel J. O'Brien, and Frank Gallagher. The female members of the cast are from the San Francisco College for Women and Saint Mary's Hospital Staff. The production of "The Late George Apley" marks the nineteenth year as director of the College Players for Mr. Gill. Said he after last night's showing, "This production will be the first in a trio of plays to be presented in the Spring of 1947. Plans are definitely under way to bring the College Players back to their peace-time level of six productions per year, as soon as possible." Registration dates for the Spring Semester will be held February 12, 13 and 14, William Dillon, Registrar, an- nouced this week. Instruction will commence on Monday, February 17. February 12 will be for new students who have been already notified of their acceptance while February 13 and 14 will see all students registering. * Concerning the program for the Spring, Dillon said, "In general, the courses will be the continuation of the Fall Semester Programs. New students will be given basic courses which will integrate with their future majors." At this date, no plan had been devised for early registration of students such as was done last term. Students are urged to watch the bulletin boards for late developments in this regard.

Journalism Course To Be Offered In The Spring Term Dean Approves Workshop Idea A new plan for training staff members in journalistic techniques was released this week by Fr. Paul Harney, S.J., Faculty Adviser of the Foghorn. The plan was drawn up with the collaboration and approval of Fr. John Coleman, S.J., Chairman of the English Department, and was accepted by the Dean of Faculties, Fr. Raymond T. Feely, S.J,, for inclusion in the spring program of courses. Tiie plan calls for a regular two-hour-a-weck workshop course in fundamentals of journalism, to be listed in the spring schedule and catalog of courses. Credits for Foghorn writing will henceforth be awarded only to students registered in this course who meet its requirements in terms of assignments and attendance. The workshop meets a long- felt need in connection with the student paper, pointed out Mr. G. V. Kennard, S.J., Assistant Adviser to the Foghorn, who will be in charge of the course. Explaining its advantages he said, "Its first effect will be to knit the staff together. Till now we have been unable to hold meetings at which any constructive work could be done, ideas or criticism exchanged. Now writers will have their work criticized; they will learn how to write heads and plan layout; they will hear lectures from professional newspapermen from time to time. Assignments can be equalized and the work of the staff spread out. And credit allowed for Foghorn work will now be standardized and bronsht more closely under faculty control." REQUIRED TO REGISTER "All aspirants to staff membership arc urged to include this course on their spring class schedules when they register next week," said Mr. Kennard. He pointed out that all staff members expecting credit for their work must be registered in the course, although writers not wishing such credit and not signing for the course are still eligible for stt.ff membership. Enrollment in the course however, ho explained, will be limited to successful applicants for the Foghorn staff, and after staff- membership is definitely set on Maraschi Meets Tomorrow Noon Father John Giambastiani, S.J., announces a meeting of the Maraschi Club for tomorrow, Wednesday, at 12 noon in room B-l. The main business on hand will be the election of new officers, for the Spring term. CIC Book Drive Underway; Dons' Quota To France The Executive Council of the Associated Students unanimously gave their approval to the mammoth book drive proposed by the Catholic Intercollegiate Council by stating that the collection campaign which gets underway today v/ill receive the enthusiastic support and complete cooperation from every member of their organization. "The Executive members of the Associated Students applaud the affiliated Colleges and Universities of the Catholic Intercollegiate Council," stated Daniel J. O'Brien, III, President of the ASUSF, "and we commend them for their charitable efforts in seeking to assist devastated schools in Europe and Asia." Similar book collecting campaigns are being cai-ried out simultaneously on the campuses of all Catholic Colleges in the Bay Area. The Catholic Intercollegiate Council has set a quota of ten thousand volumes to be collected and distributed to worthy educational institutions throughout the world. The University of San Francisco has a quota, of twenty-five hundred books which is expected to be met by the contribution of at least one book from each student enrolled in the day and the night schooi. The books collected by the University of San Francisco will be shipped to a University in France. March 1 those not choserrwill be allowed to drop the course. This arrangement was thought to be necessary in order to maintain the Workshop character of the course and focus it exclusively upon the work of the Foghorn. In releasing the plan at this time and calling attention to it before spring registrations, Foghorn advisers hope to attract a (Continued on Page 4, Col. 6) Scabbard And Blade To Hold Honor Dinner Site Sleeted For Feb. 8 Function The Scabbard and Blade entertainment committees headed by John Chism, Frank Marius, Serge Cincotta, and Frank Remington, met last week and completed final arrangements for the dinner honoring Maj. General Fredricks, Commanding General of the Coast Artillery School. Serge Cincotta, Treasurer of the Society, announced that Veneto's popular restaurant had been selected as the place. The date was definitely set for February 8, at 8 p.m. Invitations have been extended to all alumni members of Scabbard and Blade and to the cadet officers of the University Corps of Cadets. According to Secretary Bill McLaren, reservations should be made by contacting fraternity officers before Feb. 2. General Fredricks, who holds thc Purple Heart with seven clusters, will be initiated as an honorary member during the evening. As such he will be the first among several prominent military leaders who will become honorary members of U.S.F.'s unit of the National Honorary Military Society. For Frank Remington, a former Ranger, and John Chism, ex-paratrooper, the evening will constitute a form of re-union, since Gen. Fredricks was their CO. during the war. According to President Roy Lucchesi, plans are nearing completion for a project which will conclude with the erection of a monument dedicated to the 101 Gold Star Dons who lost their lives during the war. By WILLIAM PRYCE Preliminary reports from members of the Exec Council at their regular weekly business meeting last Friday revealed that the investigation into the functioning of clubs operating under a charter granted by the University has resulted in ^a definite improvement. "There is every indication that most of the organizations will soon be able to resume normal activity in school affairs," said ASUSF President Dan O'Brien. General concensus of opinion indicates that the majority of the clubs are going through some semblance of activity with the prospects that the clubs will demonstrate greater initiative in the future. Exec Council members assigned to clubs to aid them in rejuvenating their activities have been directed by O'Brien to continue contacting each individual club and to incorporate their findings in a report to the Association at future meetings. "The Association Students are fully aware of the handicaps and obstacles that most of our organizations are faced with, and we stand ready at all times to assist the clubs of the University with every aid we have at our disposal," stated O'Brien. "Activities of the clubs and the success they achieve in welding our strident body into one unit is a direct reflection on the credit or discredit of the University's governing body." I.R.C. REPORTS Andre Chicourrat, President Senior Class, lead a heated discussion concerning the practice of allowing other members of the «|ident body to purchase and jar Senior Class rings. Specific instances where underclassmen have signed up for a class ring were revealed to the Council. George Bull, President of the Sophomore Class, moved that the purchase of Senior rings be restricted to students enrolled at the University who have received credit for eighty units of work. The motion was carried and the new regulation will be instituted with the fall semester. Paul Eisler, President of the International Relations Club petitioned the Executive Council for additional funds to carry o"ut an elaborate program in the Spring semester of school. FROSH FANDANGO Eisler stated that the IRC was operating in the red due to the many past functions carried out by his club. He was advised by members of the Council that the Associated Students are interested in the activities of his organization and are favorable towards lending their assistance and approving his request. William W. Richards and Gerald J. Kilday asked that approval of this appropriation be temporarily postponed pending the submission of a financial report by the HtC. President of the Freshman Class reported to" the Executive Council that the Frosh Fandango which originally had beeen planned for Saturday evening, February 22nd, has been temporarily postponed and will be held on St. Patrick's Day, highlighting the spring social calendar. Jack or The 'Adios' Work Progressing Well Says Editor "Actual work has Tieen started on the 'Adios', now that the final drafting of thc book has been completed," announced Gene Murray, Editor of the Don Senior Book, this week. "The Editorial staff of the 'Adios' feels that this year's edition will be tho finest edition ever published," said Murray, "due to the budget being raised well over the first estimate." Murray stated that the book will include many extra photographs and works of art. A two tone color panoramic sketch on the fly sheets will be one of the outstanding additions. There will also be a border of green around each page wliile the many cartoons and other art work will be handled by Dick Raffetto, Joe Truzzolino and Andy Cassavant. The sports section will include a twenty page layout thus affording a more complete coverage for pictures and stories. All sports will be thoroughly covered. STAFF COMPLETE The contemplated section or the Military has been dropped tc expand the Activity Section, but •there will be ROTC coverage in this section. A final staff has been chosen, said Murray. Sports Editor will be Jim Stephens; Business manager, Ed Couch; Art Editor, Dick Raffetto; Photopraphy Editor, Berk Quinn; Advertising Manager, Wade Finnegan and Joe Mouille. Seniors graduating in February have had their pictures taken already, and those graduating in June are being photographed now. Murray advised all^Seniors to watch the Bulletin Board for appointments. "The main thing," said Murray, "is to keep the appointment schedule and to be on time." The schedule to be followed is that half of the Seniors graduating in June will have their pictures taken before final exams and the rest will be taken at the beginning of the Spring semester. CAMERA DAYS Juniors will have their pictures taken immediately after the seniors. They, too, will be individual shots while sophomores and freshmen will be taken by groups. Deposits will be on sale during Registration Days in the Auditorium in the form of bids. These will sell for one dollar and fifty cents and should be paid for at that time to assure getting an 'Adios', explained Murray. Another series of camera days is planned for the first weeks of the Spring semester when a concentrated drive will be made by the editorial staff to have all students with cameras take pictures. Prizes will be offered for the best Durkin stated that Faculty ap- shots of campus activities. Iproval had been received.
