The more important ph ases of Rhetori c are cover ed in thE- examinatio n, and those stud en ts who succeed in gettin g an ave r age of C., i. e., 77 % or above , a re pe rmitted to drop Rhetoric I and are given three hours of credit.

Tile op..;ning of the current intercollegiate debate season will find the rznks of the Bergin Debating Socidy seriously depleted through the graduation and transfer of seve ral vete r ~s. The present enrollmen~ indicates that of las t year's fine squad there are only four member.3 returning to St. Viator this fall. D espite this fact, th e Reverend John \V. Stafford, who succeed ~ the Re\·. J \V. R. Magui re as debate coach, has h1gh hopes that he cr.:. n find enough good material in the Freshman class to form a strong a ppregation. Father Stafford is r ega rded a~ the finest debater eve r to have been enrolled at St. Viator Coll ege, an institution which has always bee n rega rd ed in collegi_ate c~ r cl e~ as o n e of the s tronges t 10 th1 s fteld. Of th e re turning members of last seaso n 's t eams, Mr. Norbert Ellis is t he oldest and most expe rienced. With two full years of intercollegiate co ntes t s to his credit he has been appointed to th e posi tion of student manag e r of th e Bergin Socie ly. The othe r students who re ported th is y ea r are Miss Mar y C r uise, M r. Edward Buttgen, and ~Ir.

In yea rs gone by, Fathe r Thomas Hariss, a devoted alumnus of the College, was a pioneer in th e deve loping of Intra-mural a ctivities. Howeve r, with the abandonment of th e Hi gh School d epartment and the consequ en t drop in boarding students, th e Int ra -mura l program was allowed to laps e, while more emphasis was placed upon varsity co mpetiton. Last year saw a r evival, and with the new r eco r d enrollment of this year, Intra-mural activities bid well to encou rage even more the high s pirit that, in previous ye ars, was so pre valent on th e Viator campu s.
