The Victory Corps., government recommended nation- wide wartime preparedness pro- gram for the high schools, has taken a very firm hold at Subiaco Academy since it was organized on Dec. 12 by the Roy. Clement Schmidt, O.S.B., A.M., B.Sc., di- rector of studies. Father Clement nd other Subiaco instructors have devoted a great deal of time to establishing the corps and the stu- dents have signed up ]00 per cent in its various divisions. The schedule has been rearranged in some instances to permit smooth functioning. One of the most fundamental changes brought about by estab- lishment of the corps is daily miUtary drill and a fine physical fitness program. Coach R. P. Maus and the Roy.

If we could in- terest only one-non-Catholic stu- dent at that University, it could be possible that that party could young men to Uncle Sam when called fr war duty in any branch of the 'ervice. Some of tte ex- ercises are the same as those em- ployed by Coach Maus for years in connection with his athletic program, which produced six championship teams in fifteen years along with a record of nol more than two or three games lost in any season. But there are also many new slants to the exercis- ing, and the program will proceed with the teaching of "commando" tricks, endurance tests, camping outdoors, and the like. Drill Before Mass Students rise in the dark and drill before going to chapel for the morning Mass. The early drills last about 20 minutes. I: is followed by the major exercis period at 11:10, a fifty minute period. During this period mili- tary drill as well as commando tactics and other fitness factors ,are given to the boys. Now that I the various groups are getting into I shape they are finding fun as well as valuable instruction in the vhysical fitness work. The Boy Scout troops at the academy has become much more active since the Victory Corps took over responsibility for its work. It is directed by the Roy. Fintan Oldham, former Trojan football star, a lover of outdoor life. The students are clearing ground and preparing to make a "Victory Garden" this spring un- der direction of the Rev. Lambert Eckelhoff, and they ale sponsor- inga campus improvement project under the Rev. Damian Wewers. Studies Given Impetus Studies also have been given a new spurt under the impetus of the Victory Corps program. This is especially true of mathematics and the Physical sciences. A new course, aeronautics was introduced at the start of the second semester' by the Rev. Clement Schmidt. Boys belonging tO the "air" divi- sion of the corps have signed for aeronautics. This is one of five special divisions of the corps, which has also a general division. The other four special divisions are sea, land, production, and com- munity service.

Patriotic songs are sung, and usually a speech is given on some timely topic by one of the faculty men. The victory  Corps has either absorbed or Superseded every oth- er major campus activity. Basket ball, reduced to the minimum by tire and gas rationing, has flour.. ished in intramural games with some ten teams competing for the school championship.

Father McGivney had an idea, it grew in size and prestage to be- come that great organization, of which we are members; the Knights of Columbus. Now that Order is asking you for ideas, and will pay a $100.00 war bond for the best idea submitted, a $50.00 war bond to the second' best and a $25.00 war bond to the third. If you are a Knight of Colum- bus, and have an idea that might stimulate attendance at Council meetings---attwaot former mem- bers or new prospects---or contri- bute to the welfare of the Church Nation, community or members send it to the Knights of Columbus Idea Contest Box 1670, New Haven, Conn., no later than March 15th. Here's a suggestion, if your idea has reference to Church or Nation. Don't suggest dogmatic or constitutional changes, because the need of waste paper is not so serious now. Assuming that you have an idea of the idea, let's proceed. You can send in as many ideas as you please, each must be written on separate pieces of paper using only one side; your name and' address and your council number should be written in" the upper right hand corner of each page sub- mitted. Remember the decision of the judges is final, the field is wide open, and the award worthy of your effort. Why not bring it up at your next council meeting. A good suggestion thoroughly discussed, polished off and perfected by the concentrated thought of many members, might develop the win- ning idea. Your council could present the bond to your Parish Church, your council's needs or some charitable activity or sold- ier's recreational center. Let's go into this with some vim and put Arkansas in the running. indeed 'glad to hear from you Brother Dalton. It is with much sorrow that the passing of Brother George Hart, Jr., is announced.
