At a recent meeting of a campus club, the president of that organization had cause to utter these phrases, or words to their effect, while choosing subcommittees to carry out the club's functions for the coming year. These are not only words of wisdom, but words which we might offer to many of the leaders of other campus organizations. True, without an inspirational leader, no organized group can hope to achieve any amount of success. But the finest leader in the world, who cannot delegate his authority, would be just as unsuccessful. It is the task and the obligation of every leader to pick men who can carry out all the administrative and functional duties under his command. Looking around us at our campus picture, have our leaders chosen men to perform these duties? Have our leaders delegated their authority to competent subordinates? If we are to take opinion of many members of the student body, the answer would be an emphatic, No! Not once, but several times, we have heard members of the student body condemn the studentbody President, the Editor of the Foghorn, the chairman of the BSC, the President of the Irish Club, and so on ad infinitum, for not delegating their authority to competent subordinates. We would be the last person in the world to pass a judgment on the men who are responsible for the administrating of student government. But the evidence has shown that somewhere, somehow, things have often gone astray. But, does this give us the right to immediately condemn the leaders? Docs a failure of a rally, a bad gossip column, or any similar example, allow us to charge that it is the leader who is entirely and solely responsible? It Liost certainly does not. In all our experience with student government, we have often 'onlid that the reason student v-aders do not delegate their du- to competent subordinates, ^^ that competent subordinates are not to be had. Willing to work, loyalty, devotion and so on, does not make a man competent. But a combination of these qualities with experience will make a man as nearly competent as possible. And it is easy to sec that this is all a leader might request. But, we may ask, has there been evidence of any number of men who are willing to learn? Has there been any evidence that there are men in the University who are willing to sacrifice time and effort in progressing their University? You may answer that question for yourself. It is so much easier to condemn others than it is to get out and help. As we pointed out before, it is the leaders of the student body that are responsible for its operations. If capable men are not to be found, or are unwilling to assist, the leader is forced to do all the work himself. Such a situation can only bring on the condemnation that we have seen heaped upon the present school leaders. What is the solution? That is' up to you the members of the student body. It is your choice to make. A little less griping and a little more work would be a good motto for us all. * * * Did you know that there are several men in the student body who have never read the constitution of the Associated Students? We are not trying to be facetious, but of the several men who have never read the Constitution through, or even at all, are many of the members of the student government. This is a situation which is entirely undesirable. During the past month, a committee has been at work in an attempt to change, revise or remodel the constitution. Of what benefit will their work be if at the end, the men to whom they must bring their finished copy are incapable of offering constructive criticism? They will either give it a blanket approval, so reminiscent of many actions of the student government this year, or they will take no action at all, another sin of which the present Exec committee is guilty. This is not meant to condemn the Executive Committee, but we do want to point out the urgency becoming acquainted with the Onstitution. We often hear the condemnation of faculty with "faculty interference is ruining student government." The fact of the matter is that the students are not using the full powers granted by the constitution through ignorance, and squabbling over incidental and minor points. OFFICIAL PUBLICATION OF THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS UNTVERSTTY OF SAN FRANCISCO VOL 34, No. 2 SAN FUANCISCP, MARCH 4, 1947 Tuesday ARRETTS OF WIMPLE STREET F. COLLEGE PRODUCTION Foghorn Elections Don Farbstein Named Editor; Mouille, Mogler Assistants; Gazuiis, Walters Heai Zimmerman Is News Editor; Pryce To Handle Features Members of the Foghorn last week elected an entire new staff to head the school publication for the Spring term.

To Lay Plans Dan Strauzzulo was elected president of the Maraschi Club for the Spring semester at a meeting held last Wednesday in Room B-4. Other officers elected were Paul Calegari as vice-president and Charles Chicazola as secretary-treasurer. The first task of all the members, Strazzulo stressed, would be to devise a plan to contact all students interested in Italian culture and get them to join the Maraschi Club. Father John Giambastiani, S.J., moderator of the Club, had presided over the meeting prior to the election of officers and expressed the hope that the new officers would display much enthusiasm in restoring the Maraschi Club to its pre-war position of pre-eminence among the university's organization. MEET TOMORROW Father Giambastiani also emphasized that the purpose of the club was not solely to promote assume responsibilities of a more serious nature. Plans were discussed for giving financial aid to a Jesuit Institution in Florence, Italy, which has suffered greatly during the war. The matter will be reported on at the next meeting which is tomorrow. At this meeting, the Constitution of the Club will be set forth and date arranged for regular meeting. LECTURE SET Strazzulo urged all members to contact students of Italian descent to bring a new man with them to the meeting tomorrow, so that thc Club could get off to a flying start for the term.

This latter event will be in conjunction with the Italian Club of S.F.C.W. executive council of the University, Farbstein is majoring in political science and plans to go into law. Ed Mogler, a sophomore, is an English major. Mouille is a junior and an English major. News editor, Zimmerman is in his third year and is interested in fiction writing. New feature editor and junior, Bill Pryce is a political science major. George Gazulis and Bill Walters arc both prospective sophomores and taking pre-legal majors. COURSE SUCCESSFUL Said Mr. Kennard, Assistant Foghorn moderator, "The veteran staff of editors will be suppli- mented by a large promising group of reporters. All this has been accomplished by the addition of the new journalism course and workshop." The journalism course has been well received according to Mr. Kennard and there are thirty-five men now in the class. Experienced columnists and reporters from the local dailies have been contacted and have agreed to address the class, to add to the scope of the course. ENLARGEMENT PLANNED Farbstein, the new editor said, "With the much larger staff we can look forward to extending the paper from four to six pages. Another future goal we are hoping for is the publication of the Foghorn on Friday instead of Tuesdays." Former, Foghorn editor Rinaldo Carmazzi and former managing editor, Pierre Salinger will remain with thc paper to act as senior instructors to the new men./ Carmazzi was the editor for the past year and a half. Under his term of office thepublication rose from a six column paper to eight columns. The former editor is greately responsible for the addition of the journalism course to the Foghorn, and tho paper's return to its pre-war standards. Carmazzi will continue to write a column for the remainder of the term. Pierre Salinger who is also a member of the Chronicle news staff will assist in the lecturing in the journalism class, and will remain also as a writer on the Foghorn editorial staff. Spirit Of Hilltop "The Don", a painting representing the fighting Don as the spirit of the Hilltop was recently donated by the class of '47. Thc picture painted for the University by N. Pisso will hang in the Lounge along with that other inspiring painting of the three Don gridders whose spirit in both the football and battle fields will be long remembered. Thc Don is tall and straight, a cigarette in one hand the other across one of his gun belts. A green shirt and yellow waist band set of the U.S.F. colors. In the .background the University Church, Lone Mountain, and the Marin county hills across the bay as well as the coloring of the painting all donate a San Francisco atmosphere. The funds used to pay for the painting were raised at the Junior Prom last semester. This is the first permanent gift donated, to the University by a Class since before thc war and is likely to revive the old hilltop custom. Tryouis Tomorrow It was announced last week by Mr. James Gill, Dramatics Director at the University of San Francisco, that the next production for the College Players would be "The Barretts of Wimple Street." This marks a second first for the College Players, as this will be the first Amateur Showing of this production on the West Coast. The previous first being "The Late George Apley." Mr. Gill expressed high hopes for the presentation of this second major show by the recently revitalized Drama group. "With a fine group of well-seasoned performers on hand, the success of the play is assured." The recent production of the players, "The Late George Apley" was very highly received by its audiences and the students, and according to all critics was an outstanding success. Father Harney, Dean of Men, and moderator for the group, was USF DRIVE The University of San Francisco has thc distinction of being thc first school to send pack ages to Europe's needy. The International Relations Club sponsored drive for funds to buy food packages last semester netted $350.00. This amount enabled CARE to send thirty-five Catholic families a two weeks supply of rations. Paul Eisler. chairman of thc drive said "The I.R.C. was greatly pleased wiih the results and he hoped other Catholic schools would follow the example set by the Dons." Names of needy Catholic families can be submitted to the 1. R.C., and they will endeavor to have CARE send them a food package. A new drive for funds will be announced later this Spring. At that time a special program will be inaugurated, according to reliable sources in the Executive Committee. The purpose of this program will be to coordinate the drive from thc studentbody, witli aid from the studentbody coming in tiie form of funds from the Board of Student Control. New Parking Plan Provides Solution To Grave Problem See diagram on Page 2 "The present muddled parking system must be remedied at once," announced Fr. Feely, Dean of Faculties. "A new plan has been organized, whereby space previously unused will be open for student parking. With student cooperation the present confusion can be eliminated immediately." The area between the newly erected classroom has been set aside for student parking. This vast area if properly utilized should be able to accommodate a large percentage of the auto mobiles. In the past this ground has been only partially filled. Parking will be permitted between Loyola Lodge and the main university building. The area between the Green and Gold Room and the Student Lounge, however, should be left clear. This area is in constant use by tradesmen delivering goods to the Green and Gold Room and the Book Store. The space behind the faculty building has been reserved for faculty members, and students are requested not to park in this area. SPEED LIMIT 15 MILES The speed limit has been fixed at 15 m.p.h. To avoid injury tc students this shall be strictly enforced. U.S.F. stickers shall be displayed on all windshields in the future. The Board of Student Con trol will fine students who violate this rule. The space on Parker Avenue also can be utilized to avoid congestion. (convocation Thursday Convocation will be taken this Thursday at 10 o'clock. Catholics will assemble in the University church, non-Catholics in the Auditorium. MR. JAMES GILL well pleased with the last show, and was highly enthusiastic over the choice of the "Barretts of Wimple Street." HEAVY DRAMA The play has been classified as a biographical drama, bordering on the psychological. In many ways it is almost a real-life drama, for it is the story of Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning and their love affairs. Elizabeth Barrett was the favorite daughter of her Victorian father, and through his influence became a semi-invalid. Through her poetry she came in contact with the noted English poet, Robert Browning. Before they ever met they fell in love with each other's work. Finally Browning made efforts to see Miss Barrett and the play revolves around the conflict between the father and Browning over the affection of Elizabeth. The ultimate victor is Mr. Browning, as he and Elizabeth elope and create the happy ending for the play. Although in dramatic parlance a play with a happy ending is considered to be light, this presentation is serious drama, something that the College Players have aimed at for some time. Said Mr. Gill: "It has always been our ambition to present serious dramatic plays, and with the present group of actors and actresses this goal is being achieved." TOP PLAY The piay was made famous on Broadway by Catherine Cornell and Brian Aherne. It proved to be the vehicle for the rise of the good fortunes for Mr. Aherne and added to the prestige of Miss Cornell. i It was only recently that Miss Cornell allowed the production of the play in Amateur Circles as (Continued on Page 4. Col. 6) Frosh Announce Fandango Bids Will Go On Sale Bids Should Be. Obtained Early The Freshman Fandango will be held at the Hotel St. Francis on St. Patrick's Day.

In addition, refreshments will be served during the evening in the Green room which has been reserved. The music will be provided by Eddie Fitzpatrick and his Orchestra from 9 p. m. till 1 a. m. This first social event of the year will be formal and the no corsage rule will be in effect. "Violators of this rule will be treated as in previous occasions," Riordan added. "They will not gain admittance to the Italian room. There will be a booth set up in the main hall of the school where bids may also be obtained. Thirteen days remain and the price of the bids is $3.50 instead of the $3.00 previously stated. Members of the Dance Committee and executive board also have bids for sale. Members of the committee are: Jim Martin, Frank Gassidy, Dick O'Brien, Ed Faust, and Wade Finigan. "There is a limited supply of bids," said Riordan, "those who obtain them first will not be disappointed." •-• Rifle Team Places Third In National Match Tournament The University of Sah Francisco Rifle Team of the Reserve Officers Training Corp placed third in the entire Pacific Coast, it was announced this week. Only two colleges, Idaho and Washington State College, placed above the U.S.F. marksmen while others notably the University of California and the University of Santa Clara placed far below the local shooters. The Dons had entered two teams in the National Rifle Matches, and the showing of the first team brings them on one of the highest levels ever attained by a University of San Francisco Rifle Squad. The matches are held at each University, and the school sends its match cards by mail to the national headquarters and here it is recorded and compared with other schools. . <S> Big Session Alii Many Matters Face Execs At Long Meet By ED MOGLER The Executive Committee of the Associated Students of the University of San Francisco concluded perhaps the most lengthy and important meeting of the school year last Friday. Business conducted by the group included a report on the Senior Adios by Editor Gene Murray. He presented a complete report on the progress <S> and financial status of the Adios, announcing that Joe Mouille had been appointed Business Manager in the place of Wade Finegan. CAMERA DAYS Three camera days also shall be held this Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and he expressed the hope that the students will participate better than they have in the past. He stated: "Photographs enliven a yearbook and only through student cooperation will we be able to secure suitable photographs for the Adios. Everyone having a camera should bring it to school on these days to take pictures." The Adios is priced tentatively at $3.25 but may be reduced to $3.00. All students were requested to sign-up in the booth in the main hall this week. A deposit of $1.50 is requested. At the same time Murray stated deposits would be taken in the main hall, a discussion ensued as to who would have use of the booth for selling tickets. The Freshmen class had requested its use for the sale of bids to the Frosh Fandango. A decision was ORATORY CONTEST The annual contest in oratory will be held in the Auditorium of the University of San Rran- cisco, Monday evening, March thc 24, at 8:30 p.m. For the most effective speech in oratory, a purse of $25.00 will be awarded to the winner.

Details of tryouts and the rules of the contest will be posted on the Bulletin Board. IRC. PLANS FORUM The International Relations Club of the University of San Francisco held its first meeting of the Spring Semester Monday February 24, presided over by Presi dent Paul Eisler. Plans for the Club's Town Hall Forum were laid, and this year Germany, India. China, and the Indonesian conflict will be topics of discussion. A group of members are endeavoring to have Cardinal von Preysing, Bishop of Berlin, address the Club during his stay in San Francisco. St. Mary's College of Moraga has requested assistance in forming an International Relations Club. The I.R.C. meets on the first and third Monday of each month in the Semeria rom at 7:45 P.M. The next meeting will be highlighted with a talk on "Future Government of Germany." Richard Gerson, Secretary for the Club, extends a cordial invitation to all members of the Student Body who are interested in International Relations. Meet On Stage As editorially suggested in last week's Foghorn, the Execs arc holding their next meeting, this Friday, on the stage in the auditorium. Thus, potentially, over 700 students can sit in on the "festivities." This meeting will feature the pro and cons of the muddled B.S.C. situation. reached by Murray and Jack Riordan, frosh Prexy, when it was decided that both would have joint use of the booth and would assist each other in the sale of bids and the taking of deposits. FROSH FANDANGO The council next approved Jack Riordan's report on the coming Frosh Fandango. A total of 350 bids will be placed on sale this week at the booth in the main hall. The price of the bids, informed Riordan, was set at $3.50. In his formal application, it stated that the dance was to be held on the evening of March 17, St. Patrick's Day. "For this reason," stated Riordan, "our committee has been hard at work getting suitable decorations to fit the St. Patrick's Day theme. The Dance committee, composed of Jim Martin, Wade Finegan, Mike Egan, and Frank Cassidy, have made contacts with the necessary parties and everything is proceeding satisfactorily." Don Farbstein, Secretary of the ASUSF, tendered his resignation at the meeting. A motion to accept his resignation passed, and after was congratulated by the assembled members for the job he had done while in office, and was wished every success by President O'Brien Ln his new position as Foghorn Editor. MURPHY ADDRESS The Executive Committee had the pleasure of being addressed by Leo Murphy, Secretary-Treasurer of the University Alumni Association, who mentioned the various functions of the Alumni and the work they have accomplished in behalf of the University. He expressed the hope that all members of the present senior class would seek active member- Continued on Page 4, Col. 3) s' Deposits To This Week Only Fee Will Be $1.50 Per Copy Deposits on the "Adios," Junior-Senior yearbook, will be taken today in a booth in the main hall, it was announced this week by Gene Murray, editor of the publication. Deposits will be $1.50 each. "Thc purpose of the deposit system is to insure each individual who has signed up for a b^ck that he will receive it," Murray stated, "Then too, the editorial staff has to be certain of the number of copies to order, and we feel this is one foolproof way," he added. These deposits will be taken for one week only, it was reported. Students who have signed up in the main office or with thc business manager on regis- traton day, and who have not already made their deposits, must do so during the early part of the week, it was pointed out. Ed Couch, business manager of the "Adios," will handle deposits. According to Couch the deposits were to be taken on the days of registration only, but due to difficulties, time has been extended for a week. SIGNATURES NEEDED "I feel the students will cooperate to the fullest extent. We have already announced that unless we receive at least five hundred sign-ups, the book will go in the red. So far, the total is close to the goal. We feel these extra few days will give the un- der-classmen who were unfamiliar with the book a chance to sign up," Couch said. The "Adios," a yearbook which contains the scholastic and extracurricular events of the Junior and Senior classes from their Freshmen year on, plus photos of the various active groups on the campus, and a large section of sports, will be rolling off the presses about one week before commencement evercises, according to all reports. Individual Senior class photographs have already been taken and the Junior Class pictures are being taken now, Berk Quinn, photography editor of the annual said. Juniors should keep their eyes on the lower bulletin board for announcements of their ap- pontments, Queen requested. "Everythting is moving along according to schedule," Murray said. "The book will be the best yet seen on the campus. It has been laid out already and the type faces chosen. Although Howard Brodie was contacted to draw the cover, the Chronicle artist was unable to accept the offer. "Pat Fifield, an excellent commercial artist, has been chosen to replace Brodie. The roughs he has produced are very satisfying," Murray concluded. Members of the "Adios" editorial staff are Jim Stephens, sports editor: Rinaldo Carmazzi, formely of the Foghorn, assistant sports editor; Ed Couch, business manager: Dick Raffetto. art editor; photography editor. Berk Quinn, and Wade Fin. negan, advertising manager.
