One hundred and forty Jesuit educators, representing twenty-seven colleges and universities and thirty-four high schools flocked to the Hill from<S* throughout the nation to be pres ent at the meetings, at which various aspects pertaining to the vast Jesuit educational system were discussed. GENERAL SPEAKS Featured speaker at the climaxing dinner on Monday evening was General Fred D. Butler, USA, veteran of the North African campaign, Italian campaign, and leader of the famous "Butler Task Force" at the invasion of France. A graduate of USF (St. Ignatius College '17), General Butler had recently returned from conferences with Russian military officials in Korea. "Developing Statesmanship" was the topic of his splendid and timely speech The Jesuit delegates have re-dent with approximately fifteen mained to participate in the Catholic Educational Association's Forty-fifth annual meeting currently in session, at which the keynote address was made by Fr.

AlBIM»UllCHklll<»Ilt For Seniors Dear Senior: In the past the senior class has ordered special engraved announcements of their graduation from the University of San Francisco. These announcements are more elaborate than those furnished the student by the University. A sample of each type may be seen on display in the Bookstore and on the Bookstore bulletin board in the basement of the University. CHARGE FOR SPECIALS As was mentioned before, the University will furnish each stu (15) announcements free of charge. The special engraved announcements will cost the students approximately 20 cents each. A 509! deposit wil be required by April 12 on all announcement and calling card orders. KIllTilS Congratulatons from their friends and classmates to Jerome Durham on the birth of his son, Frank G. Skinner on the birth of his daughter. De Koninck Lecture Receives Plaudits; Reinhardt Next We've always known that they act that way. Dr. Charles DeKon- ninck (Universite Laval, Quebec) pointed out incisively and thoroughly on USF's philosophical lecture platform, March 20, the reasons why the Marxists do what they do: "Complete ethical freedom — or rather irresponsibility—based on a denial of life after death. This is so because for the Marxist it will someday be as if he—and anyone he may hurt -had never been." Dr. DeKoninck likewise singled out the point at which the Marxist runs afoul of the universal upsetter of philosophico-political plans, the unknown element in the human equation. "Marxism demands the most complete sacrifice of self, friends, love, happiness, life. Yet it offers personal, and eventually social and racial, annihilation as a reward." The second element of Dr. De Koninck's address to the 220 Dons and guests concerned the Existentialism of modern Europe, mainly that of the German, Dr. Martin Heidegger. He drew a parallel (by contrast) between Existentialism and Marxism, indicating that the existentialist exercises freedom of life by means of conscious, controlled progress towards death. "Life for the Existentialist is life towards death," Dr. De Koninck stated as a summary point. Equally as welcome as Dr. De Koninck's lecture was his graciously conducted question period. His answers to the queries, those apropos and those otherwise, confirmed the DeKoninck reputation epitomized best by Yves Simon of Notre Dame, "The foremost philosopher ot" the Americas." Dr. Kurt Reinhardt of Stanford University will lecture to the Thomists and guests on Wednesday evening, April 21, in the USF auditorium on "The Fundamental Principles of Modern Existentialism."

Formal Class Dance Junior Prom Sn Colonial Room Tomorrow Night 'Golden Days Of '49ers' Depicted As Dance Theme Highlighting the first week of the post-Lenten social calendar, the Junior Prom takes over the polished floors of the St. Francis Hotel's Colonial Room this Saturday evening from 9 till 1.

Tickets Moving Fast For Three-Day Run By BILL WALTERS "A sellout every night!" This was the goal set this week by the College Players for their production of "Lightnin' ", opening its three-day run Monday evening in the Little Theatre. "With a play like 'Lightnin',' said Director James J. Gill, <* "there is no reason why we ■m ■ j TBUT p can't fill all 502 seats in the Lit- Jackets Here? The Don Jackets which were ordered last semester by students will be available at the Cage in the Lounge Room at 12 o'clock on Monday noon. The approved. jackets, for which some 200 students signed up and advanced deposits, were delivered by the Hirsch and Price Company who, in submitting lowest bid ($12,751, secured the r'ght from the University to prepare the Don Jackets. The gross price for the Jacket Jacket Letters Tax $1275 . .75 .41 Total price $13.91 '49'ERS THEME Being the Class of '49, junior the class has selected "The 49'ers" as their dance theme. The decorations committee announced that the decorations will be in the best old California gold mining traditions, complete with "dust", pans, and pickaxes. Bob Jones, Junior Class prexy, stated that "the Junior Prom will be the best social of the spring semester; tickets are going like a stack of hots, so the boys better hurry if they want tickets." Bids for the dance are on sale in both the main hall and in Lovola Lodge, and an outlay of $3.00 for one admits a couple to the prom. Tuxedos must be worn by the men, and President Jones emphasized that the "no corsage" rule Will be in effect and will be enforced. In planning the dances, Jones has received assistance from the decorations committee consisting of Warren Foley, Joe Hut- chins, Jim De Martini, John Goebels, Joe Chism, and Don Whalen. Daily Rosary av ov roved By Last Tuesday night, March 30, the Apostolic Committee of the Sodality passed a final approval of daily Rosaries in the Chapel at five minutes past twelve. All members of the Student Body are invited to give five or ten minutes to Our Lady. This movement is to carry out the urging of the Blessed Mother at Fatima for increased petitions to her through the Rosary. "If this is done," she stated, "Russia will be converted to the Faith." aa Iii M<*BiioriaiRi Former Don to be buried from St. Ignatius Church Saturday. First Lieut. Thomas G. Mahoney, U.S.M.C, has come back to his Alma Mater. Tom was with the 5 Marines when he met his death on lwo Jima, March 2, 1945. THE JUNIOR PROM APRIL 3^ Execs Dominated By Farbstein's Motions At their regular weekly meeting on Tuesday March 30, the Executive Council of the University considered two matters that will be important to the student body of the University. Mr. Donald Farbstein proposed that tho school enter a float in the Portola Festival which will be held next year. He suggested that this year's Executive Council make plans for this event and that it urge that next year's Council finish carrying them out. This idea was adopted by the Executive Council. Quarterly To Go On Sale Next Week Next week—USF Quarterly- Talents of USF literati exposed. Again and again the journal of USF literary endeavor comes back to herald the cry: "Art is the thing!" Great promises—New writers - Distinction -Quality. Adhering to the dignity of the austere past, the Quarterly again bids for a substantial claim in the field of literature. And it makes a forceful bid to progress—makes a prophecy of a better future. This time we will have the efforts of Prof. "Sarge" MacKenzie illustrated in a poignant action story on the Civil War; J. Mouille, competent columnist and idea man, giving us the lowdown on Ezra Pound; Tom Powers gathering his artistry into a well-knit critical analysis of one of the most controversial poets of our age: Roy Campbell; there is Jack Leckliter cozing a delightful piece about words at us, soothing us; John Vriend takes a local char acter, John McLaren, and tells us how the great gardener built our Golden Gate Park; and then there is poetry to suit us all. Father Lyons, moderator of thc Kappa Lamdba Sigma, which is responsible for the Quarterly's publication, stated, "The contributions this time have the nostalgic flavor of the pre-war pieces of excellence. In my opinion they are the best yet." And as a last remark comes the request for student support. The Quarterly justifies its pride; the enthusiastic response of the student body will justify its publication. Earlier in the meeting the Council removed from the table the motion of the Senior Edition of the school paper. Mr. Farbstein told the members what this edition would contain. The Senior Edition, which would be a pictorial review of this year would contain pictures of the Senior Class, activities of the year, and advertisements to pay for some of the cost. Mr. Farbstein requested a two hundred dollar appropriation from the Council. The Executive Council approved. Mr. Truzzolino proposed and was seconded by Mr. Cassidy that all classes must issue for their dances free bids to the Executive council members. The motion was defeated. The Freshman class representative Danny Marinos was again absent from the meeting. Their friends and classmates offer sincerest condolences in their grief to Steve and Nick Ku^er on the death of their mother in Hammond, Ind. tie Theatre for three nights." Emphasis was placed on individual student attendance by Business and Publicity Manager Ken Bertken. "We want the studentbody themselves to show up," said Bertken. "Before, only 20% of our audiences have been USF students. If we can tap the vast reserve of students who never come to a College Players show, we will be sure of a sellout every night the show runs." GOOD BUY Already tickets have been moving fast in the booth in the main hail. Also, the actors themselves have been attempting to sell their quota of fifteen tickets each. Prices are $1.00 for general admission, and $.50 for student body members. All seats are unreserved. Bertken emphasized that this price is below that which a student would pay to see A movie, and one-third the price he would p:vy for a last row gallery seat %i the Geary or Curran. In view of the professional standards of the College Players, student response should be exceptional. "Lightnin'" is a three-act comedy about a liquor-loving tall-tale-tellin' ol' timer who, with his wife, operates a hotel on the California Nevada boundary line at Lake Tahoe. It combines humor, imaginative appeal, and suspense. It was these qualities, said Mr. Gill, that gave the play its record breaking run of 1291 performances on Broadway. That was thirty years ago, and yet only six plays ("Life with Father" and "Tobacco Road" included) have surpassed that run! DONE BEFORE The only other amateur performance of "Lightnin'" ever done in the bay area was by the College Players in 1941. Unfortunately, the play opened two days after Pearl Harbor, playing '.o only a handful of people who were not scared away by the blackout, siren, and fear of bombs. Mr. Gill thought so highly of the play that he resolved to bring it back for another chance under normal conditions. (He hopes to complete the performance before we enter another war.) For the past month, the College Players have assembled almost every evening in the Little Theatre to work out on lines and characterization. A relatively "hort time was spent memorizing lines, as Mr. Gill likes to get down to the main work on a play as soon as possible. His svstem, especially when he is directing an experienced cast, is ''low the players to start by t- giving their own interpretations, which he gradually molds into thr> desired form. STAGE STRESS He also places a great deal of emphasis on staging. That is, entrances, positions of characters at a given moment, and timing, are of primary importance. He !nser+s a great deal of "Business," or action above and beyond ""ere lines and stage positions, nto his productions. "Lightnin'" rives Mr. Gill an opportunity to exercise his special talents for facial comedy and fast action. The cast of "Lightnin*" is headed by the experienced Peter >teCal>e and Barabara LeFevre. The new feminine addition to he College Plaveres, Jean D'Ac- luisto, has won the admiration if her director and co-workers 'or her Ingenue lead.
