At t he firs t meeting of the Coll ege Club for the second semes ter the qu es tion of more deeply entering into a constr uc tive program for t he r es t of the scholastic year was brought up. Mr. Watson, the college club president, s poke briefly on the lack of con cr ete acco mpl is hmen ts during the p~1t semes ter a nd the present unsa ti sfa'ctory state of a ffairs due most probably to the inact ivity of the club m ember s. The soda l ca lendar, which is bei ng worked on by t he faculty socia l commi ttee, was discussed . It was a g r eed that the college clu b would benefi t very lit tle from t his calendar this year because th e prese nt term is fast drawing to a close. A te mporary program, cal1ing for two da nces after Lent a nd four s moker s during t he Len ten season, was decided upon. Plans for the dan ces were discussed at s ome length. The ques tion was finall y settled , at least ternporari ly, when the Seniors and Fres hmen banded together to stage the first dan ce and the Juniors and Sophomores joined forces to plan the last da ncing party of the school year.

The proposition discussed, 11 Resolved that a substit1:1te for trial by jury be adopted," is one of ge'neral interest and importance, consequently its disc uss ion .proved entertaining as well as en lightening. The arguments were restricted to t hose issues of pa r a mount importan ce. They we r e comprehensively treated and etfective.J y · deli vere'd. Clas hes were fr equent and th e rebuttal s flew back and forth at a merr y pace. Authoritative arguments were decidedly in vogue. Even in the rebu ttals Blackston e a nd Bullivan were quoted with reckless profus ion. T he trouble started when Mr. Staff ord, after chiding the Affirmative on their dearth of authorities, quoted h!.mself, reminding the audience all the while t hat, w er e it convenient, he could stand t here a ll night reeiting more. A reply was not long fort.hcoming. The next Affirmative came out like a bull after a r ed flag.

Whether or not the name Will be accepted lS, at present, a matter of conjecture and will be decided upon sometime in the near future when the votes from each schoo l in the Conference are received and counted at Loyola U. in Ch icago.

The Bradley Game Deep down in his heart every Viator man was broken-hearted when t he final gun popped in the Bradley-Viator game last Saturday night. Adequate proof of the general condition of overwrought nerves was evidenced by the unfortunate and most unusual chorus of "boos" and "hisses" which greeted the referee's decisions as the game drew to a close. Although the greater portion of voiced displeasure came from the small boys that crowded the rail on the running track and from Viator's visiting supportt>rs, so me of the Viator students themselves had a hand in the business. It i s granted, however, that the strain of the championship race as far as St. Viator was concerned was suffic'ently great to snap the reserve of the most calloused and case-hardened student. Th e Viatorians got off to a poor sta rt early in the season by dropping three games in a row by very close scores, two of them being overtime battles. It took a winning streak of seven straight conference games to awaken the Viator students to the realizat.ion that they had a contender for the championship in their midst. Excitement rose to fever heat and every college man watched with bated breath the "goings and comings" of their louted basketball favorites. The dopesteers hinged the Little Nineteen Championship on the outcome of the Bradley-Viator contest. No s mall wonder that the Viator boys suffered a case of "nerves." And then to see their fighting champions sink down to defeat before the onrush of a team that was, for a short time, yet, long enough, a better and faster outfit. Those last few minutes in that long-to-be-remembered battle brought tears to the eyes of the basketball men and heart-aches to th e large crowd of spectators.

A great novel must appeal to your intellect, stir your imagination, and s:1tisfy your aesthetic sense.

VIATOR Evard, f. Todd, f. O'Malley, c. Clothier, g. Navigato, g. Delaney, g.

Smarting under the defeat wh ich De Paul handed them a week ago in an overtime game, the St. Viator men came back and decisively defeated t he Blue Demons in the sec· ond engagement between the two teams. The final score was 20 to 12. The game was close all the way with the Blue Demons matching the Iris h point for point until the final few minutes when the fast pace set by the Viatorians began to slow up the De Paul cagers and the · Irish forged ahead into a safe lead. At the rest period Viator led 7 to 6. Tommy Cunningham sent De Paul into t he lead after the interm ission by dropping in a free throw on Clothi er's fou l and then dribbling in for an under the basket s hot . Delaney's penalty toss and O'Malley's field goal put St. Viator back into a 10 to 9 lead. Evard and O'Malley added two more points on free throws, but Powers came back with a push-in basket on Schmidt's try from back of the foul line. Captain Dela ney made two f ree throws on Reilly's foul and increased his team's margin with a fi eld goal from under the hoop. Reilly dropped in a charity toss for De Paul but O'Malley took a pass fro m Cloth ier for another ringer. Evard dup l icated the feat a moment later. O'Malley led the Jrish in scoring with ten points whi le Evard and Delaney each counted fi ve points. Bill Todd, playing in place of the injured Romary, played a great floor game for the Irish. Cunn ingham and Powers led the De Paul quintet in scoring. ST. VIATOR FG FT TP Evard, f. .... 2 1 5 Todd, f. ............................. 0 0 0 J.
