THE SKYSCRAPER Sophomores Win Volley Ball Championship Fjfeshman Score Keeps Good Pace Banging across the winning points in the last minutes of play, the soph omores won the volley ball champion ship from the freshmen, Friday, April 22, by a score of 31-30. The game, on the whole, was more exciting than well-played. The fresh men played a much better game than the sophomores, considering their past experience. They refused to lose a single point, rescuing the ball time after time when everyone was sure it was dead. The sophomore stars, of whom much was expected, suddenly developed acute cases of stage fright and forgot how to serve completely. On the returns, they seemed afraid the ball would bite them. The freshman game was character ized by hard played balls, that sailed far back into the opposite court, whereas the sophomores collected most of their points by battering the weak spots of the opposing team. The sophomores also seemed adept at play ing those tricky shots that barely roll over the net and drop to the floor. The sophomores began the game in a blaze of glory, scoring point after point from the rather dazed fresh men. The freshmen, however, had no intention of continuing this state of affairs. They began slowly but stead ily to accumulate points one after the other to the utter despair of the soph omores. The half ended with the score 18-16 in favor of the freshmen. Almost a whole new line-up appeared in the second half for the sophomores, while the freshmen used but one sub stitute. This half, too, was packed with breath-taking thrills as the soph omores strove mightily to overcome the freshmen's lead. The younger classmen, however, led all the way. until LaVerne Waindle, with four per fect serves, turned the tables com pletely. Two points behind, the freshmen staged a last desperate rally. They scored one point, then, just as the server was about to serve again, time was called and the game was over. Those who took part in the game were as follows: SOPHOMORES. FRESHMEN. R. Patterson R. B H. Piper E. Lincoln (C.).-C. B V. Busch M. Farmer .. Xi. B V. Meagher M. Dwyer R. H. B B. J. Agnew (?. Dooner ...CIL B.. L. Crowley (C.) M. Hora I/. H. B P. Madison M. Sifferman R. F V. Murphy M.

LOWER CLASSMEN BOASTS ATHLETES thletic honors between the fresh men and sophomore classes now stand even. The newcomers thoroughly avenged their soccer defeat at the hands (or should we say feet?) of the sophomores last semester by winning a grimly-fought but one-sided basket ball game March 17, for the college championship 43-14. Lightning-like pass work combined with the superior height and weight of the freshmen completely swamped the sophomore team, but the losers tool; their defeat like true sportswomen and laughing ly threatened to thoroughly whitewash the freshmen now that the volley ball season is here. The juniors, it seemed, were too deeply buried in their texts to enter the championship games; they have promised, however, to see what they can do about gathering together a team and prove their athletic prowess during the volley ball tournament. The lineup for the freshman-sopho more games is as follows: Sophomores Freshmen M.Lyon R.F C. Paloney E. Lincoln L.F M. Walsh L. Waindle C.F I. Lavin P. Duzeski R.G. V. Murphy M. Mahoney L.G M. J. Tully M. Farmer C.G... M. Wenigman Substitutes: Sophomores M. Dwyer, M. Honan, M. Hora, E. McGowan, M. McKeon, R. Patterson, M. Sifferman. Freshmen B. J. Agnes, C. Alexander, T. Alexopolous, Helen Daly, p. Madi son, H. McFall, H. Piper. Tennis and baseball will be the next sports on the athletic horizon. Al ready many tennis enthusiasts are spending free hours in tbe gymnasium practicing deceiving serves or polish ing up backhand and forehand strokes rusty from long winter disuse. Gorgeous colored targets adorn the gymnasium walls for the use of those girls who aspire to the position of pitcher on the baseball teams, and balls and bats are being rescued from dark lockers to aid in the development of future feminine Babe Ruths or Ty Cobbs. Roller skating on the fourth floor roof promises to be popular indeed, while the tap dancing classes are grow ing more and more fascinating. All in all, athletic Mundelein is very active indeed, and I do not believe a happier, healthier group of girls can be found anywhere in the world Who's Who When our thoughts turn to music and poetry we naturally think of Emer Phibbs, who is outstanding among our college poets and musicians. She is an accomplished pianist and has given distinguished performances in a num ber of programs here. She is, more over, a member of the Loyola Trio and with that group has appeared in various concerts throughout the city. Emer, who came to us last year from the Immaculata High School, is a writer of note and no Clepsydra is complete without selections from her verses and delightful prose sketches. She is music editor of our quarterly and she has contributed a number of poems to the about-to-be-issued College Anthology. Besides this, she has con tributed feature stories and humorous verses to the Skysckapkh. a notable one of the former on Irish folklore appeared in our March issue. Emer is a member of the Stylus Club and she is also a Cecilian and the librarian of the Glee Club. Contrary to many people's opinions, Emer is a lover of the out-of-doors and she delights in horseback riding and swimming. When she finishes college she intends to con tinue with her music and to write. Clare Allender is the talented young dramatic student who so capably played the part of the wife of an at tache of the Russian embassy in The Two-Edged Sword and who flavored her speeches with a finely-marked Rus sian accent. She is one of our star players and she has appeared in many productions here, notably in the House of Life, given last year, in which she played the part of Reality. Clare is a senior and came to us from North western last year. She is a member of the honorary dramatic circle of the Laetare Players, and she is likewise a member of the Stylus Club and acted a dramatic editor for the Clepsydra last year. Recently she has become a member of the Joyce Kilmer Players and will take part in one of their productions soon. Clare, whose poise and dignity make her outstanding in any play, will do great things in the dramatic world, we. think. She plans to teach speech in a social settlement after she receives her degree in June. Professor Schmeing Talks On Chemistry Students of science who were pres ent on April 8 in the Lecture room at 2 o'clock enjoyed an interesting lec ture on The Credentials of Science. The speaker was Professor George M. Schmeing, instructor of advanced chemistry at both Loyola University and Mundelein College. Professor Schmeing spoke of the modern interest in science and stressed the fallaciousness of the view that science teaches there is neither God nor morality. His claim to a knowledge of science, he maintains, is based upon his observation of the work of great scientists. Science, Professor Schmeing says, is a method of thought proceeding ac cording to the rigamorole of observa tion, hypothesis, experiment and con clusion. Professor Schmeing took as an example the constitution of matter, the molecule, and proceeded to form a theory, stressing the use and impor tance of hypothesis. He expressed very beautifully in al legorical fashion the part science should play in our lives. Science deals with facts. It is not dogmatic but is striving for truth as a goal. Long ago, before the intellect was darkened and science became like to an injured ma chine, in need of repair, it was the tie that bound man to his creator, then when the need arose, God sent a me chanic to fix the machine. The Me chanic was His Son who showed men parts of the universe they had never seen before. True science. Professor Schmeing explained, was the primitive religion. We now realize it is hut the scaffold ing around the edifice of philosophy and this philosophy can only be built up by the Mechanic God. (Continued from page 1. column 5.)

A Plans Banquet The members of the Women's Ath letic Association of Mundelein Col lege are enthusiastically planning their second annual banquet, which is to be held here on May 3. Mary Lyon, president of the W. A. A., is being as sisted by Virginia Kenny, general chairman, Helen Ryan, chairman of the entertainment committee, and Mar garet McKeon, chairman of the refresh ment committee. A definite date will be set very shortly: then reservations can be made. Registrars Hold Convention Directors and professors from . col leges in all parts of the United States met and compared ideas for the im provement of our educational system at the Twentieth Convention of the American Association of Collegiate Registrars, held at the Stevens Hotel, April 19, 20. and 21. Representatives from Mundelein attended. One of the most interesting of the new plans proposed was that of a more systematic method of grading which would eliminate the present in accurate system. An interesting dis cussion of the foundation of our col legiate instruction namely, elemen tary and secondary training was con ducted by Professor Charles H. Judd of the University of Chicago. Mr. Ratto Gives Dramatic Program Mr. John B. Ratto, well-known stage personality, entertained the student body on Wednesday afternoon, April 6. with a series of impersonations. During the last part of the program, Mr. Ratto demonstrated his skill as a quick-change artist. Within ten min utes Lloyd George, the ex-Premier of France. Marshal Foch, General Per shing, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Uncle Sam were beheld in rapid succession. Probably the most important part of this too-brief hour was the last fifteen minutes when Mr. Ratto spoke on the theater and character. Without minc ing words he struck directly at the core of the theater's art. What fasci nates us in the theater? Nothing other than the absolute genuineness of make-believe, the constant effort to make things correct, to lack any trace of artificiality. Mr. Ratto is the uncle of Vera Car son, and a native of Chicago. For some time he has been living in Cali fornia and expects to return there within a few days.

Sociology Class Study Encyclical Quadragesimo Anno, recently-issued encyclical letter of His Holiness, Pope Pius XI on the reconstruction of the social order, was the subject of a most interesting special lecture-discussion in the social problems class on March 30. The Reverend R. A. McGowan, author of an excellent pamphlet on the sub ject, was the speaker. The lecturer considered the famous pronouncement of the present Holy- Father in three divisions: 1. Its con demnation of the present situation; 2. The recommendations for imme diate moderate changes; 3. More thor ough changes. An open forum was held after the lecture, the forceful ideas presented having awakened enthusiasm and cre ated somewhat diverse opinions among the studadts. ong Program Is Given Some of the loveliest songs that French, English and German com posers have written were heard Wednesday afternoon, April 13, in the college auditorium when Nina Wester- schulte, mezzo-soprano, and Umberto Sorrentino, tenor, sang for the assem bled students and visitors. Accompanied by Harold Larson at the piano. Miss Westerschulte and Mr. Sorrentino demonstrated their vocal ability by singing all types of songs, from gay little lyrics and haunting melodies to the difficult operatic arias. For his encore, Mr. Sorrentino sang The Waterboy in amusing fashion. Miss Westerschulte ended her program by sending the lovely notes of Trees into every corner of the auditorium. Miss Marion Ryan, '34, a member of the Laetare Players, took the leading role in Channing Pollock's famous play, The Enemy, presented by the Loyola Community Players on Friday, April 4. (Continued from page 1, column 1.) ing an ideal background for the veri table fashion promenade of distin guished guests who represented the highest diplomatic society. The tone of genuine gaiety and unaffected so ciability lent a note of fine contrast to the tensely tragic aspect of the pre ceding and subsequent scenes. Mrs. Tremaine, the staying influ ence, was cleverly done by Lenore Healy who managed to manage every one's affairs to her own intense satis faction, and who was besides a strik ingly original character. Clare Allender distinguished herself as the jealous, sneaking wife of the attache of the Russian embassy, and lent a note of genuine tragedy to the production. The part of Madame Igna- tieff, wife of the Russian ambassador, was beautifully played by Helen O'Gara. Especially commendable was her exquisite handling of the two- edged sword at the close of act three. Geraldine Gardiner and Gertrude Scanlan, daughters of Mrs. Wiilner. deserve mention for creditable and charming acting, and Penelope Halou- lous was quite as convincing in her part as a French maid as was Ellen McSwiggan as Sasha, the trusted fam ily servant at the legation. Other members of the Laetare Players took part in the garden scene, and a num ber of them, wearing dainty summer gowns and garden hats, acted as ushers. After the play, the hostesses re ceived in the foyer of the auditorium where offerings to the Laetare Schol arship fund were solicited. This fund will enable at least one high school graduate, displaying unusual dramatic- ability, to attend the Mundelein school of speech next year. The following is a list of the prin cipal characters in The Two-Edged Sword : Mrs. Wiilner .... Annamerle Kramer Mrs. Tremaine Lenore Healy Cynthia Wiilner .. Geraldine Gardiner Lorna Gertrude Scanlan Marie Penelope Haloulos Mile. Sannom Eleanor Joyce Madame Ignatieff Helen O'Gara Madame Luvoff Clare Allender Sasha Ellen McSwiggin The Laetare Players wish to con gratulate Carol Gray and Silva Aron- ian for their splended scene painting, and extend thanks to Mr. and Mrs. LeRoy Stransky for their invaluable stage assistance.
