From the stnnd,point of victories, this year has been one of the most successful Viator debaters have enjoyed for many years, with .717 p·e rcent of all intercollegiate debates to their credit. Edward O'Brien, '37, and Edward Buttgen, '37, defeated William Crannell, '37, and Stephen Gould, '36, by an overwhelming audience decision in an exhibition debate befo re the St. Robert Bellarmine Holy Name Society in Chicago last week. The decision ,while unimportant in itself, was claimed by th e victors to be a fair es timate of the relative merits of the two collective-bargaining cases. This conclusion, however, bas been hotly cont es t ed by Crannell and Gould. Seaso.l Summary.

Buttgen outlined at length the formalities and tactics of debating and helped the class to organize a negative case on the advisability of the federal government's granting aid to education. Sweden's citizens still maintain the custom of addressing eve ryone by the ti tl e that designates his business or profession. For example, they say, "Will Mr. The Lawyer Smith come to dinner ?"

The Associated Collegiate Press carries a s tory abou t a young man at the Univers.ity of Texas who got nn "A" for the first time in his school career. He wired home to tell his parents of his triumph and added humorously that he had suffered a nervous breakdown as a result. Four hours late r the frantic parents appeared at the fraternity house. Their son's telegram read, "Offspring Gets a Nervous Breakdown; Ma:t Recover.''

Coach McNamara is going to h~ve a hard time filling the plaoes or Emerson D ex t er , last year's captain and center, Tom Kelly and Chet Newburg. tackles and Ficus Quinn and Ken Corcoran, guard and end cr::~pectively. At center it has been noticed in the practice sessions that Bob Schumacher, a guard last year, and Basil Nicholson, s ubstitute center have been re ceiving the call. Marik and Roche seem to be the logical choice to fi ll the guard positions ; the tackle br:: rth s will be the big problem as Krauklis is the only experienced one to repo rt. It is probable that an end or two may be co nverted into tack les. O'Leary and Tu.res, along with Dolph Guy, Fahey, and Danny Blazevich are th e cream of tbe ends. The backfield material is plentiful witb s uch stars as AI Paladino, Clare Noonan, Bill Walsh, Aeillo and MeGrath vieing for the quarterback position; J oe Saia, Abe Rohinski, Tom Gibbons, Frank Straub, Don Betourne and many other s are battling for the half back berths, while Jimmie Masterson is the only experienced fullback left on th e squad. Ken Wiser, letterman in '33, has also reported and may be convert ed into a fu llback.



During the past season the freshmen of the college supplied the power to the Green Wave. Of the fifty candidates on the squad thirty-eight of them were frosh and when letters were award ed 13 of the 26 went to the same class. Coach McNamara as a result is looking forward to
