He received his education at the Viatorian College of Bourget (then Rigaud College), and entered the Novitia.te of the Clerics of Saint Viator at Joliette, Quebec. In 1873 he came to Bourbonnais and taught in the village school for many years. He lived at the Provincial Res idence of the Viatorians in Chicago from 1902 until 1911, when he was sent to the new ly founded Colum bus College, ham.bcrlnin, S. D. He remained here for seven years, and with the exception of another year spent in Chicago, has been at St. Viator College ever slnce. After he ceased teaching, he worked as a carpenter, and the College sanctuary rail remains as one of the memorials of his labors. Through utter feebleness, he was forced in l92.,t to lay aside his tools; yet even then he could not be idle, but made himself useful knitting clothes.

A great Viator football team emerged victorious in the ir game with the Notre Dame Reserves, Saturday, October 6, as a large crowd looked on. The final score, 21 to 13 is a fair estirriation of the interesting and strongly contested game. The first home game of the season was just like a telegram of good news for the student body and local friends of the Viator grid men. Before the Notre Dame game the only estimates of the team's worth was necessarily influenced by the final out" come of the Marquette-Viator contest, a ·.fact not particularly reassuring unless the offensive and defensive strength of the Marquette team was fully kno,~n and appreciated.

Gubernatorial Candidate Gives Interesti ng Address

Floyd E. Thompson, former· justice of the Illinois Supreme Court, and now democratic cand idate for state governor addressed the studeflt body on Wednesday evening, October 3rd. Judge Thompson was introduced by the Rev. E. V. Cardinal, vice-presidennt of the College.

"You cannot make the prope~ preparation for life without ed ucation. It is not import~ ant how you acquire an educatio~, but rather whether or not you have it.

Brother Ma in vill e li ved much bey ond the Scriptural allotment in a t t aining his nin eti eth yea r, it is hi s s ixty-nine active years in Religion wh ich impress hs conf rer s, fri ends, and t hose who think of s upra-mundane things. Not onl y was t hi s long per iod speht in Go d's ser vice, but it was gi ven in f aithful ser vice un to the end. Th e t ru st whi ch God had confided to him, a religious vocation, was kept safely and inta ct during all these yea rs. In hi s earlier years, whil e occupied in t he class room, he pro ved him self a tru e Religious teach er and scores of those whose hairs a re now whitening, can testify to th e solid instruction, reli gious trainin g, and good example which Brother Main vill e imparted to th em . Later on in life he was employed in the material and financial interests of th e community and her e too he acquitted himself of hi s du t ies with t he conscie nt iousness, fidel ity, and obed ience of t he tru e religious. In s ti ll later years, yet in good health, hi s versatile min.d and hands t urn ed to t he manu al arts and he was of in estimable ser,·ice to t he different houses of t h communi ty . In these last labors il can be litera ll y sa id of him, " he worked eye dim and fing er lame." Through out this long lif e he was ever genial, good natured, loved a good joke, and was always mi rthful. Th e devotion to his reli g ious dut ies during hi s last year s, when age was upon him, a nd hi s step wa s fa ltering, was th e edifica tion of a ll. In our t ribu te we may well modify the lines of a poet: "Oft have we seen him at peep of dawn, B ru sh ing with slow st ep t he clews away" Not " to meet t he sun upon th e upland lawn" B ut to attend Mass and receive his Lord.

N umber of Students Father M. P. Sammon CeleAttend the Show bra tes Silver Anniversary

On the evening of October 2, Professor Edward Reno of Kankakee, Ill., exhibited a delightful performance of magic art in the college gymnasium. From the ve ry beginning Mr. Reno held his audience interested as well a s baffled. The stud ents a nd faculty members were co mpletely vexed and amazed at the tricks and ability wh ich Mr. R eno displayed. Professo r Re no has honored the college by appearing six tim es, each time presenting a show of an entirely different natu re. Hence we have only seen a s mall portion of the cleverness of Reno, the Magician. The Professor is one of a few who d isplays thi s art by th e use of hi s hands only. Mr. Reno does not apply any apparatus in aiding him to deceive t he public or in provi n g t hat old magic proverb t hat the hand is · quicker than the eye.'' Through earnest application and practice Professo r Reno has become a mag ician of national prornincnce in his profession. From a brief in terview Mr. Reno disclosed t hat he has appeared s uccessfully in many of th e leading cities of the United States, name ly, New York, Chicago, Cleveland and rnan y other places of note. Mr. Reno re lated furt her that he has appeared in fo r e ign co untries such as Paris, France, and New Zealand. The ability of Mr. Reno proved to be s uch a great drawing power that even royalty fou nd time to be present at the performances. There were many tricks of interest in the s ho w at the college but in parti cular th e water t ri ck is dese rving of much commendation. On the faee of it th ese tri cks looked to be simple but the cleverness of R eno prevented eve ryone from detecting his tricks.

V ia toriana From our correspondent in St. Loui s we received the following item: 'I.' he burial of t he St. Louis Cardinal s took place today. The fun eral was a most colorful affair* although flowers were umitted by request of the Cardinal leaders. Carrying the casket and lead ing th e procession around th e bases were Baby Ruth and h is p laymate, Tanglefoot Geh rig. It has been rumored in th ese parts that th e two gentlemen here mentioned will be indicted for murder. The interm ent was strictly private, only members of the Cardinal fam il y present. Great tnrongs of people were on hand, however, when the m urder was committed, so it is not doubtful as to th e poss ibi hty of securmg enough witnesses to tes tify aga inst the two great New York slugger . I nterment was in t he New York cemetery. *Ed. Note: Anything from New York is sa id to be "colorful." THE FATAL BAL LOON RACE --When s udd enly Tom sneezed. "Oh bother my nasal catarrh," he swo re. '"These paroxys ms of poena gripe me." So say mg he arose irom t he soft grou nd with a s hudder. "Ah," quote he, '"T'was a bitter co ld night. My bones are shaki ng like the leaves· on t he trees. But 1 mu st continue my search fo r mY fa ir pn ncess. To thi nk t hat slie is in t he hands of that low cur. Wh y h e wou ld stop at nothin g . Death is too goo d fo r such a horse t hi ef. . 1 shall cut his neck from ear to ear a nd aro und th e !Jack of h is head." Wit h t,h e&e word s h e leaped to his sa ddle. From out of the black of night came a sneer .ng vo ice-"That's yo u, eh ?" Tom Whirled so !ast that he lpst his oala nce a nd plun ged head long off hi s hor e landmg neatly on his back pocket. "Dir ty ," exclaimed our hero as he whipped his hand to hi s pocket a11c( 1:>rot1gh out a kerch ief, . for the s neezing had star ter. aga in. "Ay~, 'tis me, Dirty Dalton, wit h his true fr;en d and co mrade, Cobra Pythoil." ·' What," said Tom, "That snake in the gra s- " J ust th.:-n Cobra appeared on the scene. T was like th e t hree wit~ h es in Macbeth. ." What 'cha fi nd?" asked Dir ty, t a king hi s teet h out and spit ti ng a stream of tobacco juice at an inn ocent lit tle grass hopper that was making faces at him. "Nothing," h issed th e Cobr a, "but a fl ea pl aying leap-f rog by ';he pond. " "Where is my darlink Nell ?" anxiously inquired Tom, but in t ,he gruff voice he usually r eser ved for animals. · "'How do we know, Buttercup," growled Dirty. "She hit me over t he head wit h a hor se early t hi s morning a nd made me walk home. She'll pay dearl y for t hat." "Oh pancakes," softly swore our brave hero . "Don't it beat the dicken s how these femal es will disr egard etiquette. An d as for you Dirty Dalton, if a hair of her head is harm ed, I sha ll wring yo ur unwashed neck, bu ry yo u un der ten feet of g round., push yo u off a cliff a nd then shoot you dead. To horse! We must lind her." "Hello th ere," said a voice behind t hem. T hey wheeled an d t(l t h eir utter amazement saw- - (To be con t inued next week). (Ed . Note. We wonder wher e Darl ing Nell can be. Tom had her a'nd lost her. Dirty had her and he's lost her! Oh, where is our wandering Nell tonight?) Al Smith believes in Government of the people, for the peopl e, and by t he peopl e. Hoo ver believes in Government by the peopl e, of t he people and for the peop le. Gosh! Every man shou ld get two votes this time. It would mak e matter a lot simpler. Oh! Oh! Oh! 'F.his is terrible ! Who wo uld ever t h"nk of it? I woke ~tp t he other morning to find that all my life I had been under t"he si nister influence of Tammany Hall . Oh! Oh! Oh! This is a,\•ful!

I was but a simple country lad and she so bea ut if ul; g reat brown eyes of childlike inno cence that looked so appea lingly into mine: Teet h of the whiteness of milk ; slim, neat ankles; her hair was dark and glos y; I knew my fathe r would be prou d of her. And that beautiful innocence to be li terally auctioned off the block. There were others who desired her as I did, I know. A man's ,·oice broke in, "What will yo u give for this beaut iful," a man pushed me, in h's eagerness to get to the front. I must prevent him at all costs. He was known as the cruelest man in the co untry . I 1uust ha,·e her, her price soared but each time I offerd more. Finall>· he stopped and I ran eagerly forward to claim mr own, my beautiful one. I paid lhe price and took her to my father. "It is a nice heifer," he said. "but I'll never send you to buy any more co ws. they get the best of you eYery time."

Students should not regard ru les and reg ulations as disagreeable limitations placed upon their liberty but rather as safe-guards of their rights and valuable means whereby they can attain the end and purpose of their attendance at college.

Milwaukee, Wis.- Coach F'rank J. Murray of the Marquette University Go lden Avalanche is in his seve nth year as h ea d coac h of t he loca l e leven, and he is not at all pessimistic over the prospects. Although he has lost so met hin g like a dozen lettermen from the 1927 team, as well a s two of hi s best sophomore prospects through ineligi bility, he see s a silver lining. Murray belongs to the new school of coaches, and if he t h in k s t he pros pects are good, he doesn't mind say ing so. Murray is an easterner and a graduate of T ufts. Peculiarly enough, he never played football but always was a keen student of t he game; he did engag e in varsity basketball and base ba ll at Tufts, however. F ollowing graduation and so me add itiona l work at H arvard , Murray was a reporter on a S pringfield, Mass., paper, but r esigned to come west as coach at St. Viator College . He was s uccessful at St. Viator, and in 1918 moved on to Milwa u kee as professor of history and football' coach at \Vest Di vis ion High Scho ol, wher e his prep ele vens were powerful and several t imes city champions. In the fa ll of 1920, lVI urray came to Marquette as head basketball coach, ass ista nt to Jack Ryan in footba ll and professo r of economics. W h en Ryan left in 1922 to go to Dartmouth and later to Wisconsin, Murray was appointed head football coach.
