In these days when the youth of America is embattled against the forces that seek to destroy Christian civilization the Memorial Mass moves closer to the heart of the itudent body. This remembrance acquires added significance in such times as these. Our relatives, friends and former classmates daily face death on Korea's battlefields and cause the latent sorrow of the last world war to rush in again upon us. It befits us to turn toward the Christ as the Victim in the Sacrifice of the Holy Mass as the Saviour of those dead and as the Hope of the future. • The entire student body is expected to honor USF's dead.

A lineip of veteran talent is revealed in Director Stu Bennett's selections for the comedy Rev. Alexis I. Mei, S.J., Dean of the University's College of Science, has ben shgularly honored by the California Academy of Science. In reccgnition of, Dean Mei's contributions as a citizen to the progress cf science and for his true basic interest in scientific fields, the Acadtmy's Council has elected the Dean a Fellow of The Academy. Ht is the first University science rtan so honored. of city folk trying to go rural. Featured in the leading roles as Newton and Annabelle Fuller are Dave Devincenzi and Betty Bennett. Pat Barry, as their daughter, and Dom Tarantino, as Steve Eld- ridge will play the juvenile leads. Key support roles will be handled by Joe Bellan as Mr. Kimber and Ted Moore as Uncle Stanley.

Since becoming Science Dean, the faculty has been tripled and more than a fifty percent increase in upper division course offerings have been made available to prospective science students. Indicative of the appeal that science offers as a result of Dean Mei's work is the fact that there has been an eighty percent increase in the number of science majors on the campus. Equipment has kept pace with the development of the science curriculum under the direction of of Father Mei, and although no absolute figure can be arrived at, total valuation of laboratory equipment has been increased approximately one third in recent years. Perhaps the greatest tribute to Father Mei's work rr>ay be found in a report of the California State Board written after a visit to the campus by accrediting inspectors a short while ago. The report stated that "the College's Physics Department has the finest in equipment, facilities, rooms, lighting, and library of any undergraduate Science school." Food Drive To Be Conducted Plans for launching USF's annual Christmas food drive next week were made at Wednesday morning's meeting of the University Sodality. The drive to provide food for needy families at Christmas time is a traditional activity on the Hilltop. Sodalists conduct the drive and distribute the food just before Christmas. Next Thursday three large boxes will be placed in prominent places on the campus. Students are asked to bring in canned goods and non- perishables to help fill these boxes. Two boxes will be placed in the main hall of the Liberal Arts Building and one in the library. The drive will continue until just before Christmas and the aim is to fill these boxes many times. Students are urged to make their donations on the basis of what they themselves would like to eat so as to assure really worthwhile items for the recipients. The bi-monthly meeting of the Sodality also considered several other matters. Plans were made for the Sodalists to join in a Tri- duum of Masses and Communions to mark the feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Father James R. Duffy, S.J., gave the Sodalists details on a lapel pin Sodality medal, which will be adopted by the Sodality for wear- by its members. The BSC announced this week that plans for repainting the parking lines on the campus, Nov. 11, have been cancelled. Parking restrictions for that date, therefore, have been cancelled. Whether the work will be done at some other time is uncertain. Student Body Vice - President Dom Tarantino steps into his role after backstage experience last year and the part of the Apostle John in the Passion Play. Pat Barry, a Lone Mountain stu dent, appeared in "Butter and Egg Man," "Gaslight," and the Passion Play. Joe Bellam is a veteran of two years crew work with the College Players. His last acting role was in "Butter and Egg Man." Ted Moore is a veteran of several shows, having appeared in "Arsenic and Old Lace," "A Bell for Adano," and "Butter and Egg Man."

Tickets will be on sale next week at the bookstore. The entire gal lery has been reserved for USF students at $1.00 each. Teachers Join CSTA The Education Club has announced that two important meetings will be held next week. The first meeting will take place on Wednesday, November 12, at 11:00 a.m., in Hacienda 12; the second meeting is scheduled for Thursday, November 33, at 12 noon in Hacienda 9. The Club is a branch of the California Student Teachers Association. Chapters of this organization are located in all teacher-training institutions of the state. Delegates to the Northern California Student Teachers' Workshop, to be held at the University of California November 15, will be chosen from student members. The purpose of the Workshop is to attempt a solution to the problems facing student teachers in the training program. George Petersen, graduate student in the College of Liberal Arts, was elected president of the Education Club this past week. During the coming week, a lower division student will be elected as vice- president of the club. Information regarding the Education Club may be obtained from Evans Maionchi, Joe Noonan, and Betty Petrakis. A panel discussion on the Teacher Training Program to interest some of the students in the opportunities in the field of education is being planned. Students now enrolled in the teacher training program will conduct the. discussions. Dominican Mixer Tonight at 8:30 Dominican College at San Rafael has extended an invitation to all USF students to attend a mixer this Friday evening, tonight, beginning at 8:30 p.m. For a perfect Friday evening the young ladies of the San Rafael college have promised a time of levity and dancing. A variety of refreshments will be available to supplement the usual slate of delicacies.

Navy Interview Today, from 9 am. to 2 pm, a United States Navy interviewing team will be available in the Semeria Room to present information on the U. S. Navy Aviation and Line Officer procurement program. 'As Time Goes &y Theme of Dance Jimmy Bias and His Orchestra Will Serenade Dons And Dates at the Crystal Room of Hotel Bellevue Execs Getting Tough By JOHN RICH Following a trend which they themselves established eariier this year of giving the ASUSF Constitution strict interpretation, the Student F,x- ecutive Council this week voted to consider, at the next meeting, the recall of certain members. Action to be taken will depend upon explanations given by those under scrutiny. The Execs will attempt to determine whether certain officers are indifferent to student affairs or have simply failed! in some of their responsibilities for very good reasons. The discussion arose out of recognition of the fact of excessive absence from Council meetings by those A-ho must explain themselves. It was d-ecided to withhold all names until reports have been heard. The Board of Student Control was given a shot in the arm at the same meeting. After extending them a vote of confidence, the Council, at the request of BSC Chairman Barney Blackmore, moved to require that the chiefs of the social committee and the particular dance meet with the BSC prior to each school dance to determine procedures regulating j the affair. Blackmore explained that his organization had been almost over- whelt .ed by the large turnout at the dances this year and that it would perhaps be better if each af. fair were somewhat limited, especially in cases where the facilities appear to be inadequate. In a report on the NFCCS, Senior Delegate Bill Kern announced that USF was well represented at the Lone Mountain meeting of the previous week, which was called to plan the Federation's Bi-regional Convention being held at Notre Dame College in Belmont on Nov. 15-16. Kern requested that any students wishing to attend the convention notify him immediately. The Council was somewhat surprised at the proportions of the basketball rally dance scheduled for Friday, Dec. 5. Dom Tarantino reported that the Seamen's Union Hall had been obtained for the affair, that bands were being considered, and that talent for a show was being lined up. Chairman of the dance Ed Antognoli submitted a budget at the conclusion of the reporet. The Finance Committee later withheld acting on the request and asked that more definite information regarding expenditures be rendered. President Frank Riley announced that the alumni were planning a Homecoming for the same weekend as the rally dance, but that plans were still tentative and no definite details were available as yet. The Execs concluded their meeting with a discussion on the Yearbook. Some consideration was given to making it compulsory that each student buy a book. However, no action was taken due lo the vigorous objection to the plan of some Council members. By TIM TREACY The luxurious Crystal Room of the Bellevue Hotel will host the annual Soph Drag next Friday night, Nov. 13. The hotel is an old institution in this city and has been the site of many successful formal dances in the past. The spacious ballroom floor can easily accommodate the crowd of Dons and guest which is anticipated. Brazil to Honor Fr.

Chairman Castagnetto has also announced that a refreshment bar, will be easily accessible. As is the case with all University formals, the "no corsage" rule will be in effect. REV. P. C. ROSSI, S.J. ing service rendered to the cause of cultural relations between Brazil and the United States. Presentation will be made at the University's annual Faculty dinner- slated for Sunday evening on the campus. Participating in the presentation will be Brazil's Vice-Consul Luiz Souto Maior and Rev. William J. Dunne, S.J., President of USF. Father Rossi, Professor of Romance Languages on the campus, is a noted expert on Latin America, and has written several books on Brazilian history in addition to a comprehensive Portuguese-English dictionary. The occasion marks the second time the Brazilian Government has honored Father Rossi. A similar award, but in a lesser degree, was bestowed on him in November 1949. New Counseling Program at USF Rev. Ralph T. Tichenor, director of USF's Counseling and Guidance Bureau, announces that a new procedure for the counseling program is being installed at USF. Every student is required to see his counselor at least twice during the semester, between now and January. Notices, telling each student who is his counselor and also the time of his appointment with his counselor, will be placed in the pigeonholes in the basement hall of the Liberal Arts Building. As announced in last week's FOGHORN, the purpose of the pigeonholes is to bring faculty and student announcements directly to the attention of the students. The numbers located above each pigeonhole correspond to convocation numbers. Students are held responsible for all announcements placed therein. Should a conflict in scheduling occur, the student should notify the Counseling and Guidance office immediately. St. Cecilia's Parish Hall housed last Wednesday night's meeting of the Bay Area NFCCS Committee for the Bi-regional Convention to be held at Notre Dame College of Belmont on November 15 and 16.
