\^l'*<om**^?***?*0*0***0*^^^^^**^^^**0*0 "*0 5/„ rJLiahth \ou5e ^pe By THE EDITOR I stood on precipice above restless wave. The sea and I were brothers; futility was our bond. As against unyielding rock it bashed its force; in fruitless search I spent my strength. "Brother fool," I said, "why do you continue this ceaseless task; you but ebb and flow, and each time you are not farther than the last?" Its answer was but senseless roar, and in desperation I prepared to join my brother' in his vain endeavor; but on verge of leap that would make us fools together, I paused, looked skyward and addressing my un found grail, I sadly spoke. "You shimmer; you shine so brightly, you blind. Like the full moon when on yonder hill, you seem close enough to pluck, yet you are reachless. I see your radiations everywhere; I sec them in mountain peak, in valley floor, in eagle's flight, in crab's sandy walk; they flood the universe; yet your essence is untenable, you are an illusion. You are like fair maiden who hints, who implies, who offers love, yet, when I grasp, is gone. Yes, I have sought you everywhere, and found you not; I despair." It was then that * f<?h a gentle tug on my slepve, and turning, beheld an ancient man, white of hair and familiar face, all lined and scarred, marks of life's adversities; he also had searched far. I knew this face and thought him comrade, until I saw those eyes and knew him not, they were young, eternal; they burned with pure light. He led me away, over hill and into valley in whose heart nestled crystal pool, where we sat on grassy bank. "Where have you searched?" he asked, speaking first. "Everywhere," I answered. "In woman's siren call, and found frustration. I searched in redwood grove and mountain forest, in flowered meadow and vast plain; they but made my heart beat faster'. I explored the stars and distant planets, I saw signs but nothing more." He interrupted: "Did you chance upon path that led straight up to highest peak, a difficult and tortuous ad, that disappeared among the clouds?" "Yes," I said. "Once from curiosity I climbed a bit its thorn- strewn bed, and in the distance on wooden cross I saw hanging the body of a man. I remember feeling great compassion, and a strange force drew me onward, but I became afraid, I feared that poor man's fate and I fled, and while I often saw this path again, I never ventured to ascend it." I stopped, I awaited him to speak, I searched his eyes, I saw that which I had never seen before. I felt that which long ago I felt when I had seen that man on cross. I closed my eyes and on opening them he was gone. I looked everywhere and found him not. Sadly I gazed into the clear water of the pool, and suddenly started. There he was looking out at me, there I saw that familiar face. Then it came with voice of thunder and I knew it to be me. I searched the eyes, they were old, dying, and dark, and then they began to smoulder' and to spark. "At last," I cried, "I have found it." And in burning haste I ran for that path from which once I fled, and in the distance, I saw the Cross, and the sea roared its answer and I understood. an jTramisfco jfogfjorn OFFICIAL PUBLICATION OF THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS UNIVERSITY OF SAN FRANCISCO Mass i» C( lebra ted daily in the *t uden ai [ chapel 6 :30, 7:00, and 7:30 A.M.

I. Church Si! Of Annual Novena Starting Thursda Father Tallmadge Conducts Services 315 years of religious tradition will have its perpetuation next week, Marchi 4 to 12, in, St. Ignatius College Church. The annual Novena of Grace,. nine days of special intercession to Cod through the Jesuit missionary hero of the 16th century, St. Francis Xavier, will be observed by faculty members, students and faithful under' the direction of Fr. F. Tallmadge, S.J. The novena services will be conducted twice daily during that period: at 3:15 p.m., and in the evening at 7:45. They will consist of sermon and instruction (this by Fr. Tallmadge), blessing with the relic of St. Francis Xavier, and benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. The Novena of Grace is conducted annually in every major Jesuit church throughout the world. Its origin is, first of all, in the life of Francis Xavier, himself. He is acknowledged by Catholics and Protestants alike to have been the greatest apostle of Christianitv since St. Paul. VETERAN PREACHER Fr. Robert Tallmadge, S.J , at present stationed at St. Louis University, was a chaplain in World War I! After the war he was sent to Belize, British Honduras, as a missionary. Ill health necessitated his return from the difficult mission, but he returned to become a "home missionary." For fifteen years he toured the central United States as a member of the mission band of the Missouri Pi'ovinco. For the last six years he has been engaged in conducting retreats for all classes of Catholic religious and laity. He has earned a reputation as one of the outstanding Jesuit sacred orators of the Midwest. He has conducted the Novena of Grace on frequent occasions, and it is this fact, joined with his popularity, th'.t prompted St. Ignatius administrators to secure his services for the novena here. His sermon program will be one of education and inspiration— both urgently needed by Catholic laity and students in the graceless year 1948. The following is a schedule of Fr. Tallmadgc's sermons: March 4—"Herald of the Cross." March 5—"For the King's Service." March «—"Battle for ;• Soul." March 7—"Deepening Shadows." March 8—"Scalpel of Truth." March 9—"Facing the Test." March 10—"For the Treasures of the Kingdom." March 11—"Pangs, Poverty, Suffering." March 12—"Pleading Heart." A partial- indulgence of 300 days may be gained on each day of thc novena. A plenary indulgence may be gained upon completing the no- vena and fulfilling the usual conditions. A plenary indulgence (independent of the novena) may be gained by visiting a Jesuit church on March 12 and fulfilling the usual conditions. Smith, Falsetti Class Reps. MONDAY, February 23rd.— Ken Bertken was elected Vice- President of the Senior class by a large majority. Charles Smith afid Hank Falsetti were elected class representatives. Sixteen seniors were present at the elections. SENIOR EXCLUSIVE The assembled seniors laid tentative plans for the Senior Exclusive, some argument arising over the exact date for the affair. Three days were chosen as being best suited, May 30, June 5, and June 6. The May date occurs as the mid-point of a three- dav holiday. June 5th, which is a Saturday, was argued against because that day is not suitable for1 obtaining a good place to hold the Exclusive. Graduation will be held on Sunday, June 6th, consequently the date is bad because students will be busied with after-graduation celebration. MEETING MONDAY These difficulties will be solved on Monday. All seniors are requested to be present at a class meeting to be held Monday at 12:00 noon in Room B-4. World Govt. Debated By Philhistorians March 3, the Philhistorian Debating Society will participate in an inter-collegiate debate on the national question "A Federal World Government." The place of the debate will be the Semeria Room at 8:00 p.m.. Wednesday evening. Representing the University of San Francisco will be John Hayes, Chair-man of the Debating Society, an Gerald Kilday, Treasurer of ASUSF. They will take the affirmative side. Taking the negative side will be the University of Tulsa, Oklahoma. The University of Tulsa is bringing a five man team here to participate in this debate with USF. This was the announcement received by the chairman of thc Philhistorians, John Hayes, from the chairman of Tulsa debate squad, B. K. Mele- kian. . This will mark the second time this semester that the Philhistorian Debating Society has participated in a debate with a collegiate team. The first time was on February 17, with the University of Stanford, at the Jewish Community Center here in San Francisco. The debate being non- decision, no winner was named. In his effort to raise the Philis- torian Debate Society to its- prewar standard, Mr. Herold, S.J., the society's moderator has been instrumental in securing debates for the team. Public Speaking 101a, Mr. Harold has so conducted his debating course that those who wish to debate may receive a sound preparation in the fundamentals of debating, and experience in actual debate contests. BSC l>ges Cooperation The Board of Student Control requests the cooperation of the student body as regards the regulations of the University of San Francisco.

Encyclical Studied During IRS Meeting Movies Planned Subject: Labor At the meeting of the Industrial Relations Society last week, Rev. George Lucy, S.J., moderator of the society, was formally introduced to the members of the society. Fr. Lucy gave a talk on the Papal Encyclical, "The Reconstruction of the Social Order," which was attended by members of the society and their friends. Dr. Lucy also expressed his appreciation and thanks to Dr. Ru- Jolph Hernreid of the USF Industrial Relations Department ;for the time and effort he generously contributed to the Industrial Relations Society during its infancy last fall. Herb Messer, president, announced that the next meeting of the society is scheduled for March 3, at 7 p. m., in the Semeria Room. A short business meeting will be held from 7 to 7:30 that evening, after which the members of the society and their juests will sit in on the labor- nanagement lecture discussion ourse conducted by Mr. Murray, n the labor-management evening school. This particular lecture and .discussion on the subject ol labor and management is unique in the fact that the course has as its students, representatives of management and of labor. The discussions that ensue will prove very interesting and valuable to anyone interested in labor-management relations, and will further afford the society and their ^uests a ringside seat on the 'abor-management arena. MOTION PICTURES New plans and activities are being formulated by the society and, according to Herb Messer, foremost among these are a presentation and showing of motion pictures related to the labor- management field at the future meetings of the club Outside speakers and experts in the labor- management field are being contacted to present talks before the club and conduct open forums. A club banquet before the termination of the semester is also proposed and will materialize if sufficient funds can be obtained from the ASUSF. All students of the University are cordially invited to attend the meetings of the Industrial Relations Society. S€OOP Father William Monihan, S.J., left recently for the East to conduct a survey of college and university libraries preparatory to the building of USF's own during this coming autumn. xpands Activities Now Works On Full-Time Basis The placement bureau, which helps students and alumni of this university to secure employment, has now expanded to a full-time project under- Mr. Roy Hall, Dean of the College of Business. AID TO ALL STUDENTS Since February 16, this bureau has gone all out in aiding present and past students of USF to obtain jobs, either on a part-time or full-time basis. It also endeavors to assist students who have to leave the University because of financial reasons in securing employment. The placement bureau, since its creation on November 1, 1947, has secured 24 full-time jobs and 365 part-time jobs for students. At present there are about 450 job applications. Frank Sunderbruch, Director of the Bureau, has this to say concerning the scope of the bureau: "The assistance which this office offers is not limited only to business students (which is what some think) but to all USF students—those presently enroll- ?d and those who have studied in this university." SPREAD THE NEWS ' According to Herb Messer, Sun- derbruch's assistant, this bureau has been publicized through the Chamber of Commerce, but he was surprised at the number of emp!oyers who have not heard of it. Stressing the effectiveness of oral communication, Herb Messer says, "We can encourage employers by word of mouth — by spreading the news from person to person." For the benefit of those who have not yet taken advantage of this opportunity, Mr. Sunderbruch will be at the placement office, which is opposite Fr. Na- gle's office, from 9 to 11 a. m.— Monday through Friday. Mr. Mr. Messer will be there from 1 to 4 p. in. on the same days. Seniors who are graduating this summer are encouraged to contact this bureau for jobs pertaining to their particular field. Foghorn Ilamqaiet Don Farbstein and Ken Bertken were feted at a banquet last evening at the Riviera Restaurant by their FOGHORN associates. Don and Ken were given keys by the student body for their work as editor and sports editor, respectively. Joe Mouille, last semester's managing editor, was presented a handsome cigarette lighter by the members of the FOGHORN in appreciation of his efforts.

EDITOR SPEAKS UP FOR KLS CLUBHOUSE Pool Players of the Green and Gold Room league will indeed be happy to hear that the Executive Committee, last Tuesday, made a motion that a letter be sent to the proprietor of the- Green and Gold Room, asking him to fix the pool tables. They have been slightly in need" of repairs for- some time now. It was suggested that it be pointed out to the management that if someone were appointed to collect the fee for every game sufficient revenue would be obtained to permit repa;rs. ELECTION RETURNS Jordan Martinelli reported that the senior elections were very successful and that Kerr Bertken was elected to the vice Presidency while Charles Smith and Hank Falsetti are the representative;;. "They are all very capable fellows for the job," said Martinelli, "and I am looking forward to, and am confident that this will be the most successful administration the senior class has ever had." The school treasurer, Jerry Kilday, asked that the budget for the Scabbard and Blade Dance, to be held on March 17, be approved. The motion was carried. PRICE TOO HIGH Then he asked that the Executive Committee approve the price of $2.00 per couple. The majority of the Conrnrittee thought the figure too high and after 15 minutes of ensuing debate the price of $2.00 was voted down. So now the ducats for the dance will go at $1.50. The man behind the eagerly awaited variety show, Bob Jones, asked the Exec Committee to approve and pass on the variety show budget. The discussion which followed the request was climaxed by the approval of the budget. Students wishing to help in the show or work on committees, should be in the Semeria Room Thursday, Feb. 26, at 12:00. K.L.S. CLUBROOM Joe Feldhaus made his presence known by speaking up for the members of Kappa Lambda Sigma, who wished to obtain a club room on the campus. George Muldoon, Vice Pres. of the Student Body, said that he will look into the matter and report his findings at the next meeting. If you are passin-j by the Semeria Room, look in and gaze at the nice new shiny table that Jerry Kilday managed to get for free. "It just goes to show what you can do when you take Dean Hall's Business Course," remarked Ed Robinson. The USF Clee Club is going to sing for the patients at Letter- man General Hospital and Father Nagle requests that anyone who can entertain volunteer his services for this more than worthy cause. U.S.F. Takes Over Sponsorship Of The Wasmann Journal Society Seeks More Members Sponsorship of the "Wasmann Collector" will hereafter be undertaken by the University of San Francisco, the University science department announced recently. Heretofore the "Wasmann Collector" was a cooperative work published by the various chapters of the Wasmami Society throughout the country. COOPERTIVE PLAN Now it shall be the cooperative work of the Wasmann Societies of the University of San Fran- sisqo and the University of Loyola of Los Angeles. This action was taken because one chapter of the Wasmann Society wanted to have the University of San Francisco given exclusive control of the publishing of the "Wasmann Collector." But because the science department and the president deemed the idea unfeasible the "Collector" is now under the cooperative plan. A work of a highly technical •ature dealing with original research on the part of the members cf the faculty and advanced students, the "Wasmann Collector" will do academically for the University of San Francisco what the Notre Dame's football team does for the University of Notre Dame. PERMANENT VALUE Being composed of original work, its contents are of a permanent and scientific value. The managerial post will be held by Dr. Kessel of the Science Department. The post of publisher will be filled by Father Mei, Dean of ihe Department of Science. It is a unique fact that the University of San Francisco shall now be the seat of publication for this scientific journal of such wide import, for the only other like it in the United States is the "American Medland Naturalist," published by the University of Notre Dame. Also unique is the fact of its Drofuse or widely dispersed distribution. It has exchange with such foreign countries as Italy, (Continued on Page 4, Col. 1) S.F. GLEE CLUB TO BE PREFERRED GROUP By CHUCK ARNOLD Special to the Foghorn Music is paramount in Entertainment says Art McCue head of the U.S.F. music department "In fact it is the only type of entertainment that appeals to all classes and all ages. Every person naturally expresses a choice for a certain specific stvle of music, but he conditions ii further by naming a preferred group to present this style. I believe the time is very near when the U.S.F. glee club will not only be a preferred group in the Bay Area but will be competing against the finest singing organization in the |a piano team until Uncle Sugar- nation." I started paying respects to all the Mr. McCue began his musical! fellows. In 1941 he enlisted and training at the ripe old age of i was sent to an Army band. Be- five under the tutelage of his fa- j fore severing relations with the ther, a well-known band director! Army, he arranged for and di- and choral master. Along with i rected the 65-piece unit that was rafters of the ole' honrestead. His musical foundation was very complete, so much so that while still a student at Sacramento J.C. he was made band director, arranger, and leader of the glee club. Dining the summer- months he continued his studies at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Transferring to Stanford he was elected to the position of band director, arranger, director of the glee club, and was placed in charge of all musical productions. On receiving his A.B. in 1939 he toured the countrv with his three brother's they compris ed the Musical McCue's, who as reports have it, fairly shook the the official band of the Peace Conference held here in San Francisco. In 1946 he joined thc facul ty of U.S.F. and St. Ignatius as director of music. The process of building a good representative musical organization in an institution where no school of music exists has presented a very difficult problem. After practically havirrg to go down on his knees last semester to get 16 members. "It was," he says, "very gratifying to walk into the first class of this semester and find 45 members enrolled. I feel at last that the points I have stressed this last yea- in these columns have been proved: 1) We do interesting things, and 2) a person doesn't have to be a prodigy or a soloist to join." The U.S.F. glee club is already a member of a league made up of the glee clubs of Cal., U.S.F., Stanford, St. Marys, Santa Clara and Mills College.. Their first combined performance will be a national Broadcast in April. IRC Plans To Continue Communism Lectures By A. .1. CATALLI, Special Staff Writer The International Relations Club, official organization for those interested in world affairs, will hold its regular bi-monthly meeting Monday night at 8 p. m. in the Semeria Room. Bill Teutschel, president pro tern, stated in a special interview "the object of the next meeting is to put into operation some of the pending projects of last semester-, and to let the members exchange ideas which would better the club." He mentioned the following as some of the pending projects: First, to choose from the membership special lecturers who would represent the IRC in its attack on Communism by giving short talks or panel discussions before local social clubs and organizations. Second, to take the initiative in holding a hav area conference on world affairs with all local *^en's and women's institutions participating. Third, to expand and actuate the calendar of the program committee. This includes secur ing outside speakers from local foreign consulates, from newspapers, the FBI, and from any other sources related to projects undertaken by the IRC. Fourth (and this Mr. Teutschel stressed to find an effective method of securing better student response to all IRC activities. President Teutschel requests that all members of the club's whip, policy committee, program committee, faculty advisory board, public relations, and education committee be present. He also invites all students interested in international affairs to attend the next meeting. The IRC is commonly known as the "queen" of the campus extra-curricular activities. It is the first organization to become activated following the close of the war. Most of the members are veterans of all theatres of ^oerations.
