Friday evening found the entire s t udent body, alum· ni and a host of their frie n ds en· joying one of the greatest celebrations of its kind ever held at St Vator College. Footba ll Game on B er g in F ield. The evening began with a footba!! game played under the powerful lights of Bergin field. This battle found the Fighting I rish all tangled up the aggregation from I llinois Col· lege. This, being tbe first home game of the year, found the stud ent body keyed up to a high pitch prepared to spur the team on to a '1ictory. The game did n ot fall short of any expectations being hard fought all the way, each team giving aU that was in them. Dance In College Gym. After the game all tUrned their steps towards the highly polished floor of the gymnasium, where the crowning event of the evening 'w~ held. One of the largest crowds that we have ever seen attended this dance. Approximatey two hundred swayea to the very p leasant music of Charlie Formento and his orchestra. This was Mr. Formento'~ first appearance on t he campus 01 t.he college and all seemed to be well pl easf'd with his music. The decorations for the evening ' w ere in keeping with the season of the year and these colors intermin· gled with the traditionai purple and gold of St. Viator made a strikin~ contrast. The lobby was filled with purple and gold streamers meeting at a point in the center. COIT stalks were paced in the corners tc give it the autumn a tmosphere.

On Tuesday. November third, a triple celebration was held at St. Viator College. I t was the centenary of the founding of the orde r of the Clerics of St. Viator. It was the golden jubilee of the priesthood of the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Legris, and of the founding of the Province of Chi· cago of the Clerics of St. Viator Such an occasion is rare in the an: nals of any institution, and is de· serving of the importance and respect that it received on that day It called to mind the noble work t hat has been done by the Clerics of St. Viator in the Province of Chicago, and in many other p rovinces as well. Looking backward into the past hundred years, we see rising steadily from an humble beginning a r eligious order, justJy famous as a teaching body. W e rec all the many fruitful years that Msgr. Le· gris has spent in this viCinity and in other his studies during his youth in Europe. The tribute that haf!' been paid to the Monsignor by his many friends and students who val· ue his teachings and friendsh~ among their most precious possessions is fu ll worthy of their inspira· tion. l\'lun deleln P resides. His eminence, the Cardinal Arch~ bishop of Chicago,' George Cardinal Munde lein, presided at the cere monies in Maternity church . On his arrival at the college he was greet· ed by the entire student body in lines aong the driveway. The ec clesiastical procession from MarsiJe Hall to Maternity Church followed The Rt. Rev. Bernard J. Sheil was the celebrant of the Mass. The lit· urgical ceremonies gave beauty and pomp to the occasion. R~. Rev Msgr. J. E. Laberge of Quebec gave the sermon. It was an eloquent ser · mon that paid high tribute to the Priest and educator. Its text was "He that shall do and teach, h e shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven." Math. 5, 19.

Almost 5 i x t Y years spent in the s e r vic e 0 f God and man! Sixty years 0 f self denial and abnegation; 0 patient, beautiful sacrifice; and of the expression of his love for Catholic youth. And the fru its of his vocation yet proclaim themselves to all who know him. Father Moses Joseph Marsile was born on Nov. 17, 1846, of s t rong, God-fearing French parentage. ~eI but a youth, he came to the UniteC: States, and began his studies at St Viator College. H aving completed the Classical Course t hen offer ed, he became a member of the Viatorian Order, and was ordained priest on Oct. 30, 1875. His excellent wor k as teacher and adviser of students merit'!:-J. for him the Presidency of the College four years later--in 1879. He served in this capacity for t wenty· six years. Under his administration, the College grew in numbers and wisdom; nor has there been a single one of his "boys" who has not departed from St. Viator s t rengthened it" charac t er, and infinitely richer in " t he milk of h uman kindness." A stern and exacting man has been Father Marsile, but there has been none quicker to recognize merit in his charges, nor mor e will ingly receive their confidences and troubles In 1906, St. Viator College burnt to th e ground; and its destruction caused a great wound in t he heart of Father Marsile. So long had h e been accustomed to consider the building as a necessary part of hi ~ ideals and cherished ambitions, that the loss of it nearly caused a comple t e physical breakdown. However, w ith charac teristic adaptabili ty and executive power, he began recon· ~truction ~mmediatelY.

He told u s of th e preSidents of the college, those leaders whose nam es a r e a househoIil. word today in the home of every alumnus- the names of Roy, Marsile, Q'Mahoney, Ryan, Bergin, Kirley, Rice, and Maguire. With words of Simple dignity and sincere sentiment, Father Rowan extended the congratulations not only of himself but of a ll present to Msgr.

"QUADRAGESIMO ANNO." The recent E ncyclical of our Holy Father, Pius the Elevent.h, on lab::n' conditions, was as timely as it was apt. It UI)holds a conviction that has been growing ' m ('at holies all over the world for a long time,-namely, that our present Pontiff-with all due resllect to his predecessors-is by far, the most scholarly man who has held the keys of Peter in recent years. In the manner of that other -great advocate of the cause of labor, Leo the Thirteent h, he I)Ortrays with a striking vividness the retmgJ'ession to an almost medieval feudai system that is practically inevitable if y,-e continue to tread our IHesent economic paths. The Holy Father str esses particularly the need for jus.ice in social and industrial relationships. This is not a IICW n(Jte. in Papal Letters; in fact, it is merely an e1aburatIOn :md development of the theme of Leo the Thirt.eenth. Leo defined the "just wap,·e" in the light of Christian teaching as that return from labor which is 8utficienj 10 keep the laborer a nd his family in decent comfort. In t.he late Encyclical "Quadragesimo Anno" it is fn r the r dcvelolled. Fathers of families must receive enoug-h cOl1ltJensation to do a,,-ay with all necessity for " -j,,es and children to engage in public labor, says the Vica r of Christ. Modern critics who smile indulg-ently at this pl'OnOUIlcel;lent, \\"ill if they read further in the Papal letter come anos!> a statement that should cause their smiles to vanish. The Holy Father says : " .. . _ Social justice demands that reforms be imm ediately introduced that will ;rnarantee eyery adult workman just such a ,,-a ge."

The colleges of the country, therefore, have an imperative duty, in an age little given to honor ing and respecting intellectual, spir·· itual and artistic achievement of high order, to honor and reward those who have cared little for the prevailing modes and habits of thought and have unselfishly devoted themselves to the dear delight of the

pursuit of the good, the true. and the beautrful. St. Viator C-:-Uege, this eVf>ntng, performs a gracious and beautiful duty in giving the highest honor in her gift to one elf her most deservinJ and most distinguished sons. It is true that his name is not on ev e r~' lip, he llas built no great bulldings.

He has led no armies to coocl.Iest nor del<1 the fate of a. nation in his hane. but those of us who know him well. who have lived with him d ay l'y aay. in that penetJ'ating int.mn'.. : y that a college of this kind alo!' e can gl"c, tnow that he possesses 9. nobUit~· and a greatc~ss far surr,a ssing that of tame or power or e mpir·~, and has. attained excellence in J ~arning and virtue far in excess of an ? that ~hC'se other attainments might give. For aU the years of his a ·t :ve life he has lived Lidden away from

Eternal City to learn at the fountain head of religious truth the highe3t learning and the supremest wisdom, the truths concerning God. With zeal and energy he devoted himself to his studies, thereby, even imperiling his health and winning the Doctor's Degrees in philosophy and theology. After ordination and completion of his course in Rome Monsignor Legris returned to St. Viator College and freely and completely gave himself to the college to teach young men, and to the pursuit of sanctity and learning. Many generations of students have testified to the brilliance and thoroughness of his teaching and the fullness of his scholarship. No mere acquaintance with the superficial and more apparent facts of a subject satisfied him. Through toil-filled hours he would ascertain what the great masters of tbat subject had taugbt. He would compare conflicting opinions and authorities, he would run down every lead until he had exhausted every available source. Such has been the thoroughness of Monsignor's scholarship in his own chosen field of moral theology. Let none draw from this the erroneous conclusion that he is a mere specialist who has learned more and more about less and less. His scholarship is broad and cultUred and many professors of literature, music and arts may well envy him his easy familiarity with these subjects. The characters of Shakespeare are his familiar friends. The greatest dissipation Monsignor Legris ever allowed himself has been to feast and rollick with John Falstaff. He has entered intimately into the soul searching meditations of Hamlet and his heart has been torn by the tragedies of Lear, Othello and Macbeth. Dante has lent him the wings of his imagination and he has soared to Heaven and descended unto Hell. For him the musicians have woven harmonies of sound and he has shared the ecstacies of poets. Like the poets he has felt a thrill of joy when he has gone out early in the morning and seen rosy-footed dawn standing tiptoed on the bori~ zon shooting her golden arrows at the shadows of the nlght and r ea chiog up to hide the stars in h er bosom. He has wandered through the great art galleries and has entered into intimate union with the great artists of the world who have dipped their brushes in the rainbow to paint pictures · worthy of their dreams. He has occupied a seat in the court of the immortals, a seat

bought only at tbe price of love and appreciation of the things of the heart and the mind. With this equipmen\. Monsignor

3rd, 1931, "He that shall do and teach, he shall be called great of heaven," Math. 5, in 19,the kingdom The idea of that pious celebra.tion commonly called golden jubilee did not originate on earth: it came from heaven; God Himself brought it into this world when he commanded his people, the children of Israel to spend every fiftieth year in resting from aU labor and giving way to holy rejOicings. It is becoming and useful for us to stop at certain stages of our career here below and to turn our eyes toward the past in order to see grouped together, and to embrace in the same view the favorS received from God and the weaknesses and deficiencies of our life, and to formulate, in the light of experience with the help of divine grace, resolutions that prepare a brighter and more fruitful futUre. Your Eminence: It is not for me to thank you for the honor of your presence here on this occasion. Others will do it with expressions more appropriate to your dignity and personal merits and to your activities and achievements in this large archdiocese of Chicago Simply allow me to lay at your feet the homage of my respect and ven· eration. Monsignor and dear Jubilarian: Your ife, during the last half 01 s. century, reminds us of the words of the Gospel: "He that shall do and teach, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven." The fiftieth anniversary of your ordination to the sacred priesthood could not pass unheeded. The Provincial of the Clerics of Saint Viator, the President and the members of this Institution, your friends, your former pupils were but too glad to profit by this opportunity, in order to show you their esteem, their af· fection and, for the most part vf them, their gratitude. This College is truly your home. Here you have spent your youthful days as a student; here, ever sonce you became a priest, you have devoted yourself, with unrelenting zeal, to the cause of education. Priest and educator! These are, my dear brethren, the two thoughts upon which the past of our Venerable Jubilarian invites us to fix for a while our attention. l - The Priest. The prfest is the ambassador of God, the dispenser of the divine mys. teries. He is, through Jesus Christ and vlith him, the light of the world. He gives to men the lessons of eternity. He makes them contemplate in the night, through the holy obscurity of faith, the star-spangled firmament of revealed truths, that brilliant portal of the temple of glory. An angel preceded in the wilderness the people or Irsae and guided their course towards the Promised Land. The priest is the guiding angel of the New Tes. tament. He points out at the hori· ~on the star of hope draVling us to· wards our heavenly home.

He cures their wounds, brings them back from the path of error or the wanderings of sir~, teaches them uprightness, mutual respect, kindness, justice and charity: he blesses their love, their union, their oaths of fidelity at the foot of the altar; he accompanies them with his light, his encouragements and supernatural help all

Viator Defeats _I_I1.----.... Co lIege Irish Defeat Charleston Teachers 13.-9·RAMBLERS LOSE "-

FIGHTING IRISH DECISIVELY CRASH CHARLESTON LINE \Vestray Scores for Viator. Refusmg to b e demoralIzed by the qwck mne-pomt lead gamed by the Charleston Teachers In the first quarter of Monday's football game, the Flghting Insh of St. Vlator came back in the second and third periods to score two touchdowns to pull the contest out of the fire and win, 13-9. Charleston scored first, before the game was a half dozen plays old, and the cause of their scoring was the same as that which lost the DeKalb game for Viator and allowed Bradley her first touchdown- a fumble in the shadows of th e Irish goal osts. Charleston kicked off to ViaP tor and the Irish tried a couple of thrusts at the line. Viator punted, and Charleston kicked back V iator ltit the line, and then Ken recruit fullback. fumbled the ball behind the St. Viator goal line and fe~l

on it for a safety, giving Charleston a 2·0 lead. Teachers Use "~' indo Wi th ~he wind at their backs, the Teachers r esorted to a pun ting game, steadily driving the Irish backwards. Gaining th e ball on St. Viator·s 45 yard line, McClain hit the center of the line for a forty-yard gain, bei!lg hauled down from behind by \Vestray, fleet Irish half. McC lain was sent plunging into the line twice, and the ball was over for the touchdown. Charleston elected to run for t he point, and, catching the Irish off guard, made their attempt good. Score: Charleston 9, St. Viator O. The Irish were completely changed after the next kick-off. Fighting, tearing, semashing their way down the field, they carried the ball from their own thirty-yard line to a touchdown in an uninterrupted series of substantial gains. It was Westray who bore the brunt of the Viator attack, and the mighty halfback became a veritable football demon as he tore his way down the field, shaking off Charleston tacklers like leaves, and requiring four and five men to bring him down on every play. To vary the attack, the Irish used Red Harding, frosh halfback candidate, who swept the ends when Westray rested, and opened gaping holes for Ken when the Viator star carried the balL Westray went over for the touchdown from the threeyard line, and th e score stood: Charleston 9, St. Viator 6. Irish Improve in Second Half. The Irish returned after the intermission with r enewed zeal, and fought the Teacher s off their feet. The force of the Irish charge momentarily demoralized Charleston. and they grew reckl ess in their attempt to score again and put the game safely away. A long Charleston pass was intercepted by Red Harding, and the genial brick-top returned the ball to the Charleston 25 yard line before meeting with serious hindrances to his progress. On the first play, H a rding took the ball on a reverse to the two yard line, whence the dependable Westray plunged across for the counter. The try for goal was good this time, and St. Viator led, 13-9.

Choosing to punt instead of playing the ball, the Illinois coUege punter, Woods, repeatedly put the Saints in a hole and it was his ability to kid{ that really kept the Saints out of scoring distance much of the game. Westray also did some creditable kicl<ing for the Irish. At one time he kicked out of bounds 011 the fine yard line which is no easy task when you try to place it thereabouts.
