^IMr^mMWWWWWMWWV OL +rJLiqhth 9' onde By THE EDITOR Once again the subject of tj,e Board of Student Control arises and is worth some comment here. While no analogy or comparison is ever completely satisfactory, we do have a homely example to clarify the position 0f the Board of Student Control jn Student government. VVe might liken student, govern- pent at U.S.F. to a four-legged table. One is the Executive, another the Legislature, the third tt,e Judiciary,- or BSC, and thc last tiut not least important feature, the Faculty. ! As we well know, taking away one of the supports or legs of a table would materially weaken the table's ability to remain in an upright position. On three legs, the table might not fall but under pressure would more than likely collapse. Student government is in the same condition. As long as the four branches or legs of government remain strong, student government will be strong. Weaken one, and you weaken the whole structure. BSC WEAK Under the present student constitution, with its competent officials, the Executive and Legislature are dynamic forces. The Faculty, while often accused of interfering and lacking cooperation with the other branches of government, are still performing their duties. We must remember, however, the Faculty would become most disturbed at the weakness of the other branches. The fourth leg of our government is not on firm ground like the other departments. The BSC suffered most by the war years. The tradition of law abiding by- existing legal institutions was lost after the war in civic as well as student circles. Now, six students ar- charged with the responsibility of enforcing student regulations as well as Faculty rules. MAINTAINS LAW Many men object to the BSC as being reminiscent of M.P.'s and shore patrols. This may be true. But none of these men will deny that such organizations are nec- ,ry. Men are human and sub- to error, and, to prevent abuses to the minority, preventative measures must be instituted. This is all the BSC really is. They are not charged with the apprehension of violators. Their chief task and their only task is to prevent violations from occur- ing. They are not interested in fining students, taking convocations and the like. They only want to see the University running smoothly, according to the best traditions of law and order. Any governmental system requires a law-making body, with executors of the law, and then a body to enforce and prevent violations of the law. At U.S.F. we are fortunate in hav- (Continued on Page 4, Col. 3) How to Cut Travel Time without K-l™ Cutting ii Quotum 1 '"" *i ""j •lu" fe-V" Classes \ URIAH " ' SACtiJWMQ **r» ■a wm«n Lg % S»HU 3 . iAN MINOKO ▼v Man m»[ ^«m» <Kui i ▼ k+KJdTlkiT fVMOMftl LUIS OHVO LJUIH MAIIft Vii«l» w»m Week-end trip "^ '«»•««* home, or to see that summer date afiain?

'j- 'Ten Little Indians' Goes econd Rehearsal PETER McCABE Veteran Performa Pohley Expects Sellout With McCabe Starring The College Players are now entering their second week of rehearsal in this semester's play — "Ten Little Indians." Judging from the results of the first week of researsal, this will be the finest mystery play ever done by the College Players. SELLOUT EXPECTED Business Manager Lyman Pohley, is readying himself for an early sellout; he expects an even greater demand than for last semester's "Joan Of Lorraine." Pohley asks that student buy their tickets early so that they may be sure of a seat. The dates of the play have been changed so that it will not interfere with mid-terms; the new dates are Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, November 3, 4 and 5. McCABE TO STAR Peter McCabe, who has one of the leads in this production, will be well received by those who saw his past performances in "The Late George Apley" and last semester's production of "Joan of Lorraine." Pete's performances have always been of high caliber — this performance promises to be the best ever as it gives him an opportunity to use all of his versatile talents. In the "Late George Apley" Pete's performance was favor- aby compared with the movie lead of Ronald Colman. Look for more of the same in his new lead in "Ten Little Indians." Curtain time is 8:30 sharp. Tickets will be on sale next week at the ticket booth in the main hall. The Players are to be congratulated for keeping the price of the tickets down to only fifty cents for the student body and faculty and their wives; general admission is one dollar Remember — to be sure of a seat buy your ticket early and come prepared for an evening filled with mystery and suspense. . ♦ ♦ Sliovv Nevada Tilt Movie Next Week One hundred and thirty-six students attended- the game cinema in the auditorium last Tuesday, a larger crowd was present Wednesday. Since the response has been so great, showing the pictures will be continued each Tuesday and Wednesday at 12 noon. The Nevada game will be shown this coming week. The pictures run about forty-five minutes, Rudy Papule and Bennett Levison of the senior class are in charge. "The price is a dime per person, the proceeds of which will be split between the senior class and the athletic department," said Bennett Levison. Taft-Hartley Law I.R.G. Forum Topic At Weekly Meet Manko, Riedy Form Grid Team At a meeting held last Wednesday of the Industrial Relations Department, the Organizational Committee of the Industrial Relations Department went to work on several changes that have been made on the Club's constitution prior to its approval and ratification by the Executive Committee of the ASUSF. Herb Messer, chairman of the Organization Committee, annouc- ed that plans are being formulated to conduct a forum on the recent Taft-Hartley labor legislation. An interesting feature of this forum will be the presentation of speakers from both sides of the fence on the current dispute over the new labor legislation. With the advent of the University Intramural season in the near future, Frank Manko and Robert Riedy of the Activities Committee are working on plans to organize a team to represent the club. All Industrial Relations students interested in forming a football team to compete in the coming intramurals are urged to contact Manko or Riedy. LEGIONNAIRES MEET On Wednesday evening at 7:30 o'clock, the newly formed USF American Legion Post had its second meeting. Elections were held and the following men have been elected to the temporary offices of the Post: Joseph S. Valenti, Post Commander; John A. Newsome, First Vice Commander; Joseph Galligan, Second Vice Commander; John Vriend, Adjutant; George W. Waters, Treasurer, and William A. Halonen, Master at Arms. A constitutional committee, a membership committee, and a publicity committee were formed. - NO CONFLICT The Post is composed of the veterans of the University. At the first meeting of the Legion st it was decided that there uld be no conflict with the i«ron Epsilon, the school vets club. This newly established veteran organization has the advantage of belonging to a national organization and also has permanency because it will include members of the Law School, Night School, Summer School, and Alumni of USF, thus affording the widest possible membership and enabling it to continue in existence after the present members graduate from the University. Faculty members, who are veterans, have been welcomed into the post and those contacted have consented to join. MEET IN NOVEMBER The new post is now definitely underway and a drive for membership has been started. The next meetitng was decided to be on Thursday evening, November 6, at 7:30 p. m., at the University. All those interested are urged to attend. Thomists Lay Plans For Semi-Monthly Meetings In Fall \ First Session Next Wed. Not many people are taking George Bernard Shaw seriously in his petulant old age. But in a younger year he did say many things of a serious and arrestf ing nature. Among them is thi following: "There is no surer symptom ot a sordid and fundamentally stuj- pid mind, however powerful ii may be in practical activities, than a contempt for metaphysics^ A person may be supremely able as a mathematician, engineer, parliamentary tactician, or racing bookmaker. But if that person lias contemplated the universe all through life without ever asking, 'What the devil does it all mean?' he is one of those people for whom Calvin accounted by placing them in the category of the predestinately damned." MEET WEDNESDAY The philosophical honor society of U.S.F.,The Thomists, holds to the substance of that remark while leaving open an avenue of good Christian charity for those of our race who have neither time, inclination nor environment to "metaphyz." It is dedicated to the answering, as a group, of the question "What does it all mean? "--and will meet this year on the second and fourth Wednes*, day of every month at 7:00 p.m. in the University 's Semeria room in a united seminar effort to discover what "at least part of it means." That "part of it" will be the sources of modern philosophies as discoverable in the French neo- Thomist Etienne Gilson's volume, The Unity of Philosophical Experience. The seminar sessions, conducted severally by each of the society's members, will consist of an appraisal, analysis and discussion of the chapters of the book. GIVE CREDIT From the two organizational meetings held so far this year has come the decision (vvith faculty approval) to admit Sophomore majors in philosophy along with the usual upper division students who have earned at least a "B" average for two semesters in a philosophy course- A final organizational meeting to be held today in room B-2 will elect a student chairman and one of the two vice-chairmen, as well as settle other matters of importance. An invitation has been extended to and accepted by those students of San Francisco College for Women interested in participating in the seminar discussions, to so participate. Plans are being laid for the conducting of the sessions either occasionally or alternately at that College. Further plans are under way for the securing of guest speakers for some of the sessions— names as yet unannounced. The first of the regular sessions will be held out of schedule on Wednesday evening, October 29, at 7:00 p.m. in the Semeria room. Free Legal Aid By Law Dent. Students who so desire may secure free legal aid, it was announced by the Registrar's office Tuesday. Advice will be given without charge by several members of the University's Law School; namely, Mr. Merica, Mr. Stanley, Mr. deFuriak, and Mr. Farry. This opportunity can be taken advantage of by making an appointment with one of these gentlemen through Miss Proctor, in the main office. Service includes only advice. The professors named above will inform students as to the advisability of taking legal action through the courts, assisting them in procuring legal aid, and helping them to understand the workings of the legal profession. Soph Drag Tonight Palace Hotel Location Don Social inaugural Ray Hackett's Orchestra Draws Capacity Crowd The Sophomore Drag will get underway tonight in the Gold Room of the Palace Hotel to the music of Hay I kickett's Orchestra, launching the first formal dance of the University's social season. A capacity crowd of Dons and Donas was guaranteed 1 '> today with the sale of the last of Material Sought By Quarterly Editor For Fall Issue Publication Date Still Indefinite "The Quarterly," the University of San Francisco's contribution to current literature, is now being compiled and will reach the printing stage in late November or early December according to the publication's moderator, Father James Lyons. In accord with its title, "The Quarterly" is published four times a year, and •is a magazine containing the literary endeavors of students, faculty and alumni. CONTRIBUTIONS NEEDED Naturally the emphasis is on student contributions, so don't hesitate in bringing in your masterpieces of either prose or poetry ... in fact according to editor Ed Van Der Slice, what the Quarterly really needs are radio scripts, one act plays, short stories, and maybe a few sports articles. Ed also mentioned that promptness in submitting articles would be appreciated due to the shortage Of time before the first issue. With our campus periodical being sent to over a hundred colleges and universities plus the Congressional Library, you never can tell where your article might turn up. A few years ago a selection was taken of this magazine and placed in the "New Current Digest" among articles from Mc- Calls, Harpers, The Saturday Review of Literature, et al.,.nothing but the best. So Dons, lets get busy and make our literary publication, "The Quarterly," measure up to, or surpass, rival publications from other campi. ♦-• .— Psychos In Meeting Plan Fall Program Fearon Expects Trip In Field The Psychology Club, under the supervision of Dr. Fearon, held its first meeting of the fall semester last Monday evening in Semeria Room. An extensive program of activities was planned for the semester, including trips to the Agnew Home for the Fee- bio-Minded, Napa, San Quentin Prison, Langley Porter Clinic, and other rest homes. A calendar schedule was arranged, and it is believed that at least six trips will be undertaken. Last semester, under the guidance of President Fontes, many such visits were made. They proved to be an overwhelming success. In addition to Dr. Fearon other eminent persons in the field of psychology will speak on relevant matters at the group's gatherings. Dr. Catton, father of Kyne and Pat Catton, both of whom are students at the University, is expected to lecture to the Club some time during the course of the semester. The first proposed trip will be to San Quentin Prison on November 1. The next meeting of the Club is scheduled for Monday evening at 7:30 p.m., October 20. three hundred bids which had been put on the block. Promising to be the social highlight of the fall semester, the Drag was a rapid sell-out. Also an attractive selling point was the reasonable price of $2.50 per couple, a $1.00 reduction from last year's dance. Despite the reduction in price, the committee in charge, led by Prexy George Snyder of the Sophomore class and Joe Truzzolino, the Foghorn staff artist, promise the maximum in quality and entertainment, and say that actually a boost in price would not have been amiss. FOOTBALL THEME Snyder states that this year's dance will keep abreast of the season by having football as its theme, and Joe Truzzolino guarantees an- attractive and interesting decorating scheme. Signifying a return to post-war normalcy, tuxedos, unlike last year, must be worn; and, of course, formal gowns for the women will be required. Corsages, however, are strictly banned. Much embarrassment will be avoided by remembering and adhering to this rule. Snyder wishes to express his regrets to the laggards who failed to purchase their bids in time, but in order to assure everyone the maximum in enjoyment and entertainment, the bids had to be limited. GERRY KILDAY Holds Priceiine Societies Plan Reorganization A combined meeting of the Sodality and Sanctuary Society was held Wednesday night in which steps were taken toward reorganization. Also on the agenda were plans toward promoting Don attendance at symphonies, operas, and other fine arts through group participation in obtaining tickets at . . . let's say . . . cheaper rate. Father James J. Lyons, moderator, looks toward another successful year for the sodality with the following holding office; Robert Jones, first prefect; John Ward, second prefect; and Dan Whelan, secretary. ■ *-a BViees Rise Predictions: Look for a possible increase in the price of ice cream, shakes, etc. in the Green and Gold Room. Big manufacturers have hiked the price of ice cream 15 to 20 cents a gallon, soooo. . . . Lambert Plans Big Inter-Sectional Matches This Year Rifle Team Opens Fall Practice Once again the sound of rifle fire has returned to the lower floor of Loyola Lodge, where the ROTC and Don varsity rifle teams are now practicing for the coming rifle season. The ROTC team is composed of students participating in the ROTC program, but the varsity rifle team is open to all aspirants to the art of sharpshooting. It is also to be noted that ROTC members are also eligible to fire with the varsity team. NATIONWIDE MATCHES This year, post matches will be fired with colleges from all over the nation, and shoulder to shoulder matches will be fired with the University of Santa Clara. Arrangements are also being made to schedule matches with other colleges in this area. In addition to the ROTC and varsity teams, there will also be one or two teams entered in the class "C" league of the San Francisco Rifle Association. Last year the rifle teams had a fairly successful season, defeating Montana, Wyoming, Alaska, Pittsburg, and Santa Clara, while losing only to UCLA, Nevada and Oregon State. In the Sixth Army Area, which encompasses eight states, the team was rated third in ,area ranking. In the State College class it was second. Any aspiring riflemen are urged to contact Major Lambert or Sergeant Tadday at the rifle range. Students Attention There will be a meeting of the Kappa Lambda Sigma Literary Society Monday evening, October 20, 1947, 7:45 p. m. in the Lounge. All members and interested students are urged to attend. KUHARICH APPOINTED Aid Asked From All By TOM POWERS Special C(Trrespondenl Following the order of the Executive Committee that he present suggestions to minimize the violations of University regulations, Bennett Levinson, in an exclusive Foghorn interview, outlined the steps he thinks will help. 1. Each member of the Executive Committee should act as a law-enforcing agent. 2. The Professors in Class should be asked to inform students as to the why's and wherefore's of University rules. 3. The Board of Student Control should be enlarged because of the increase in duties due to the larger student body. 4. Steps should be taken to have the Block Club act in conjunction with the Board. Levinson stated that cooperation is the only standard that can be followed if any kind of success is to be realized. As to effort by the BSC, Levinson declared that there has been no lack of it. "Plenty of information has been circulated about the parking rules and smoking regulation. Tickets have been given to students who do not keep the driveway to the Green-and-Gold Room clear, and to those who continue to park behind the Faculty Building and at the front and sides of the Athletic office. The Board is obliged to enforce these rules, but students must show initiative also." Levinson reiterated that cooperation by the students and the Executive Committee to the BSC is absolutely essential. Joe Kuharich, assistant football coach, has been appointed moderator of the block society. Joe, after earning all American honors at Notre Dame, played professional football for the Chicago Cardinals of the National Professional League, and later became line coach for the Pittsburg Steelers of the same league. When Ed McKeever accepted the position as head coach at U.S.F., he brought Kuharich along with him to serve as assistant coach. Kuharich accepted the appointment as moderator when he learned that an overwhelming majority of the block society members wanted him as moderator. NEW CONSTITUTION Hal Jensen, student body president and halfback of the varsity football team, has composed a new constitution for the block society. He has submitted it to Pete Newell and Coach McKeever for approval. If this constitution meets with their approval it will be submitted to the executive committee for ratification. There are a great many decisions confronting the block society when they hold their inaugural meeting of the year. The first problem will be the electing of a society president. Another decision which must be made is what sports should be awarded varsity letters. Football, baseball and basketball players are assured that they may earn a varsity block but the standings of the so called minor sports is yet to be determined. These two questions will highlight the next meeting. Bids To Remain At Low Price Continued violations of University regulations, along with a seeming lack of BSC preventive action, prompted the Executive Committee, at its weekly meeting Tuesday, to question the BSC for its seeming ineffectiveness, since some students still disregard the no-smoking and correct parking rules. (See reply above). NO COOPERATION During the discussion that followed introduction of the motion, Bennett Levinson, BSC chairman, stated that the prime reason for the situation is the absence of help and cooperation by students and the Executive Committee itself. Several members of BSC subcommittees have quit because the student body seems to think that the BSC is a 'big joke'. He said that, "the BSC can really do nothing by itself, since it is a small body; it needs the aid of everyone." The motion was taken up by the Committee for action, with the result that Levinson was asked to look into the trouble thoroughly, and then, at the next meeting, offer suggestions for its solution. This was the most important part of the meeting, again presided over by George Muldoon, Student Body Vice-President. Other action, just as vigorous, dealt with sending dance bids to the class Presidents of the six Catholic colleges who correspond to the class sponsoring the dance at USF. postponing the election of student body secretaries until next week, defining a flexible policy as regards the raising of the price of dance bids, and deciding minor matters that affected the PA system, the Freshman class president and "thank you" letters. FREE BIDS It was decided by the Committee, after a few minutes of intensive discussion, to establish a precedent by sending THREE free bids to the colleges of the CIC, that would include one for the student body president, the CIC rep., and the class president (Continued on Page 4, Col. 6)
