Organization Is Second Of Its Kind In History Of College

·1 ---------------

The S t. Viato r College Booster Club was organized at a meeting he ld in the College Club rooms on Tuesday evening, August 1, 1933. At tha t meeting, th e principal bus iness was the selection of officers, who will di rect th e activities of the g r oup until 1934. The chart er officers arc: Richard T. DesLauriers, 114 7 South Elm A venue, president; Daniel H owell, 585 South Ne lson Avenue, firs t vice- presiden t ; Prof. Clarence .T. Kennedy, 942 South Myrtle Avenue, second vi ce- presid ent; Miss Luci lle Putz, 707 North Chicago Avenue, secretary; E. 0. Arringto n, 1019 South Myrtle Avenu e, treasu rer, and Danie l B e rg in, 468 South Poplar AveAll are resinu e, se rgean t- a t- arms. dents of Kanl<akee. The College fac ulty has as its r epresentative th e R eve rend Dr. Christophe r Marzano who is the business manage r of the College, as well as m e ntor of th e classes in c hemistry. Not The F i_rst Attempt This is the second attempt at laun ching a boos t e r club for th e College. The firs t attempt was inaugurated about a decade ago by alumni m e mbers in Chicago. This second try s hould prove a bit more effective than the las t one in so far as it will ope rate in the a rea immediately s urroundin g th e coll ege, in s ur~ ing a reawak e ning of th e inte r est in th e college and a mor e vigorous s uppo rt of s tud e nt activities. President DesLauriers o ul~ined th e purpose of the Club as bemg twofold; to create a g reat e r local inte r es t in the affairs of the college and t o help fu rthe r the inte r ests of the college in eve ry res pect. The me mbership of th e Club i s o pe n to those int er es led anywh e re in this county and a lso to paren ts of s t.uden ts a nd friends of the co ll ege outs1de th e co unty. Ch irr Aim The chief aim of th e Club, is of cou rse , to put U1c co llege on a more im posing spot on lhe map, or at ICll..st en large th e present spo t. The deplorable s upport given th e college in its athletic, dramatic and forensic efforts have b('en heavily sco r ed by the group and a determined attemRt tC\ awaken Ka.nkakc~ans to the good thu college cnn do for their city is one of the first conside rations of th e clu b. The Booster Club will s ponsor so<'lal ftmctto ns of vadous so rts to aid the Colleg-e Library Fund, while a "more ll \'ely ruul more ge n er al ac tivity", according to Dr. Marzano, \vill mark its prog1·am. A prog ram of special ('mpha.sls a.~ regards Kanknkee has already been inaugurated and is clllculatt"U to swell the attendance at athletic e\•t:>nts. debates and s t age presentations by the students. In short, the effort is intended to make Kank akee " Viator conscious", and is (Continued on Page Five)

DE BATE MANAGER ISSUES CALL FOR NEW MATERIAL

The outlook fo r the Be rgin De bating Socitey this year is not a happy one. Unless there is some unu sually good talent among the new students of the school th e forensic year may be one of the poorest in Viator history. With the graduation last June of Mr. W enthe, Mr. H oover, and Mr. Middleton went the hopes of a Conference Champions hip fo r 1934. These three men together with Mr. Nolan formed the Viato r foren sic teams of 1933. This year Mr. Nolan is the only man who is, what Father :h!Iaguire, Debate Coach, choose-s to call, an experienced debater. The coming season will mark his fou rth year of Int er collegiate deat e co mp e tition. H oweve r , in 1vl r. Bur,ns and Ni r. Ellis, Fr. Maguire should find a ray of hope for the foren sic year. h1r. Burns, a senior, has had some experience in inte r-coll egiate de bating and will un. doubtedly prove to be a valuable man during the coming s eason. M r. Ellis, although only a Freshman last year, displayed a na tural talent for de bating and with a year's ex perience tu cked away should be one of th e mains tays of th e Bergin Societ y. Unfortunate ly enoug h, the li s t of ex pe rienced men end s h e re. Although a formal meeting of th e Be rg in Deba tin g Socie t y has not been calted to date, those interested in debating are ask ed to see :Mr. No lan, dt" bate manage r, as soon as possible. Ther e i s a very urge nt need for rnaterial this year, a nd th e tentativ e sc hedul e calls fo r a pproximately t we nty or twenty- five contes ts. Thus all th e members of the socie ty are practically assured of seeing plenty

Togethe r with these debates the Bergin Society will again engage in a se ries of radio debates over stalion WCFL in Chicago.

Tobaccos grown in this counby are" seasoned" with tobaccos from Turkey and Greece THE ANSWER IS VERY SIMPLE:

OBACCOS to taste right in a cigarette need to be flavored or seasoned just the same as you might season a steak or a pudding. No tobaccos have ever been found that equal the spicy aromatic tobaccos of Turkey and Greece for this purpose. That's why we send 4000 miles for aromatic tobaccos from Samsoun a nd Smyrn a,Xa nthi and Cavalla. When blend ed and cross-bl e nded in just the righ t amounts with Chesterfield 's mild ripe Domestic tobaccos, the result is a rich flavor and a fin e fragrance. Chesterfields are seasoned rig htthey taste right. May we suggest you try them .
