Yea- LITTLE ROCK ,C_X)LLEGE Military Zeal t ger created a very favorable impres- In the many drills lately held it has been interesting to note the zeal with which both Conmany A and Company B work. There is a reason for this. The two Companies are drilling in competitive work against each other. A prize has been offered for the best drilled of the two companies. Com- pany A's members stauhchly declare that "the old company is there with the goods." The members of Co. B however, with equal boldness assert that their crowd will "walk away with the prize." Hence we cannot of- fer an opinion as to whom the reward will go. The anxiety will not con- tinue very much longer however as the decision will be reached some- time in the near future. It was an object of great care to the Commandant and Major that they might pick a prize which each mem- ber of the victorious Company can share. Yet this reward for good work must be a prize fitting for the purpose. -They at last have decided that a very attractive medal will be bestowed upon eaca Cadet in the win- nmg group. These medals are to have a suitable inscription and are certainly worth while working for. Gold Medals The Gold medals offered for the most efficient Commissioned officer, non-Com., and Private in the Battal- ion has called forth a very snappy ex- hibition of drilling by the various con. testants. Privates are racing toward the finish in great style and even now the judgment as to who is the best is puzzling The contest between the non-Corns, for their prize is, "if any- thing, tighter than is that of the Pri- vates. Not much is to be said as re- gards the Commissioned Officers as sion by the manner in which they sang the beautiful melody "And Let The Rest of the World Go By." Mr. Bridwell's soft tones blended with the wonderful alto of Yaeger's in just that combination which lends exqui- site beauty to a piece. L. Rogers, an old star, created a new mark for himself by the song "Patches" which he sang in a way that challenges admiration. Acid Test Exams Friday afternoon, May 14th, the boys in the Academic and Commercial classes were forced to face an acid test in the shape of examinations. During the month of May the Modern Languages which occupy the third hour in the afternoons are dropped owing to" the time taken up in the evenings by May Devotion. Therefore the examination was held. Each boy was forced to rise and before the whole faculty and" the entire student body answer questions which the respective professors of that particular language would fire at him with the rapidity of machine gun fire. It was a trying ordeal but it was a case of "As you have sown so shall you reap." From all appear- ances all of the boys worked hard during the year. MARYKNOLL NOTES. China First to Try Bone-dry Idea. The Chinese claim that in the elev- enth century before Christ, their Em- peror, so disgusted over iJhe preval- ence of drunkenness, ordered all the grape vines in the kingdom uprooted. The Chinese Emperor removed the cause of wine drinking. That may be the reason why the Chinese took to making intoxicating liquor out of rice. A hundred years before this bone- 'lhe Funeral of Oscor Vaught Oscar Vaught, student of Little Rock College, who was drowned last Sunday afternoon, was buried from St. Andrew's Cathedral FHday morn- ing at ten o'clock. The Solemn Requiem Mass was sung by the Rev. H. A. Heagney, President of the College. The Rev. Thos. L. Keany was Deacon and the Rev. J. P. Fisher was Subdeacon. The Rev. W. H. Aretz, was Master of Ceremonies. The Rev. H. H. Wernke and the Rev. S. J. Peoples acted as chaplains to the Bishop.  After the mass the Right Rev. Bishop spoke very tenderly of the loss of such a promising young man and told his sorrowing parents that their one and only consolation lay out- side the field of human expression and words were but a vague and clumsy expression of the inexpres- sible. He sought them to seek and, find their consolation where their son had found his joy and happiness: In God. The Right Rev. Bishop then im- parted the last absolution and the body of the young comTert college boy was borne to its last resting place in Calvary cemetery by his classmates. Company A, R. O. T. C. acted as guard of honor and escorted the re- I mains to the cemetery where they[ were interred with military honors. ] lr. and Mrs. Vaught, father and[ mother of the dead boy, and his two sisters attended the funeral. The Junior and Senior classes of Mt. St. Mary's Academy. also attended the funeral.

' ized the great importance of London, May 19.--Catholic interests will be adequately safeguarded under a British mandate for Palestine, it has become known from high official au- thority here. In no circumstance will Catholic access to the Holy Places be interferred with. Diplomatic conversation between the Vatican and the British legation, i is declared, have resulted in the Holy Seo making known its full attitude regarding Catholic interests in the premises ;and in the Government giv- ing assurance that all present Catho- lic rights will be confirmed. The Vati- can, according to the infmnation, has requested that the Zionists be con- i fined within just limits. Cardinal Bourne is said to be well leased with the attitude of the Gee- element toward Schismatic and Pro- testant churches, which, because of their inability to take diplomatic ac- tion, must act for their own protection as individual bodies. Bishop Neville, Vicar Apostolic of Zanzibar, declared that the war has left him bereft of priests and has struck the whole mission movement the deadliest blow it ha encountered since the time of the French Revo- lution. The French missionaries in Zan- zibar were, for the most part, recalled to the army; and the German mis- sionaries, who carried on a very great pal of the work in many British colo- nies, mve been expelled by the Gov- ernment. Alderman John S. Gilbert, the new chairman of the London County Coun- cil, has been appointed a knight com- mander of the Order of St. Gregory by Pope Benedict in recognition of his services in the cause of Catholic edu- cation. He is the first Catholic alder- man to gain a place on the council, Recet pion. The reception given from the hours of 2 until 5 p. m. was a very delight- ful affair, during which the Very Rev. Pastor, Father Gallagher, the mem- bers of the congregation and many other friends and former pupils called to extend congratulations to Sister Mary Catharine. Musicale. At 3 o'clock a special musical pro- gram was rendered by former pupils. The auditorium was indeed lovely in its decorations of the school colors-- white an(! gold-:with touches of silver. Marking the dates of the Jubilee were silver bells suspended above the stag 9. Large pahns, ferns and cut flowers, gave a pleasant setting to the entire room. At the close of the program Miss Anna Robert, in well chosen words, presented to the Jubilarian a "Spiritual Bouquet" from the Sodality members, then Miss Mabel Lee, presi- dent of the Alumnae, stepped forward anti, in behalf of the Association, de- livered the address, in beautifully ap- propriate and touching words, with as- surances of the love and grateful ap- t i preciation of each member. She then !very gracefully presented the honored Jubilarian with a basket of silver coin with congratulations and good wishes for many more fruitful years in the service of God. Informal Chat. InfoInality now asserted its gentle sway, and for a while the pupils of "the days that were" indulged in rem- iniscent chats with their former teacher, who had been instrumental in organizing the Alumnae Associa- tion of St. Joseph's.

" it:, whose fate is yet series of four games with the two schools in that city. Hendrix and The Arkansas State Normal. Hendrix 3; L. R. C. 2. In a sea of mud the collegians clashed with their ancient enemy It was a hard fought game, full of ex- citing moments, the victory was never sure until the last inning was beer. Benny Yorio started for the chile- glans from the Capitol City and pitch- ed a perfect game, but it seems that the fates which rule baseball are averse to Benny. Something always happens at the wrong time. A fluke hit gave the Bulldogs the victory. Yorio struck out eight men and al- lowed but four hits. Yet they were enough to doom the team. The play- ing wa slow owing to the heavy wet field that made running a chance thing, with little hope of success. The college scored on a momentary weakness of the Hendrix fielders, vdhen they allowed a couple of bobbles to net the .scores for the collegians. Hendrix 5; L. R. C. 2. The second attempt was really worse than the first. Geo. Fletcher pitched wonderful ball, striking out eleven" men. But the fielders weak- ened and with a couple of passes. His work went for naught. In the ninth Morris Wilson, started a batting rally that looked dangerous. He laced out a three bagger, that produced a panic in the Bulldog ken- neNand MacDonald was rushed to tzhe mound. Hale placed a pretty single in the field. Henry the next man up, was too late. MacDonald had found his range and Henry went out into oblivion of the strikeouts. Little Rock' College 1; State Nor- mal 0. The NmTnal series opened well, Benny Yorio was again in the box. He held his" opponents to three hits. He never wavered in the pinches. Be- hind him, the support worked like heroes taking every chance and ruth- lessly smashing all hopes. Reception After the game the young ladies of the State Normal tendered a recep- tion to the visitors in the college building. It was a very pleasant evening and much enjoyed by the visiting ball players. Little Rock College 6; State Nor- real 2. The gods of the American game continued to smile_ on the college boys I even if the weather would not. Gee. ] Fletcher went to the mound with fire I in his eye He thirsted for a revenge ] for his last day's disappointment. ] George pitched a great game, and Every little "slip," every sign of hesi- tation was sought out by the eyes of the Major or Commandant and a little enigmatical work followed. Eliminated Each succeeding night the boys again marched, and each succeeding night the number dropped with great, but not too great quickness. At last the number has been reduc- ed to a few of the select cadets and the elimination plan has been aban- doned. As the contest now stands there are 5 Commissioned Officers, 3 Non-Corns. and 6 Privates in the race. Cadets Capts. J. O'Regan and C. Murphy, Cadet Lieuts. J. Carroll, J. Conners and J. Murphy are tho Com- missioned Officers who still have a chance for the prize offered to men of their class. The Non-Com. contest has dwindled to. Sgts. L. Rogers, L. Sharum, and J. Linder. Six privates are battling for their medal, viz: Cadet Pvt. A. Goetdtgen. Cadet Pet. A. DeClerk. Cadet Pet. R. Riddle. Cadet Pet. C. Isemann. Cadet Pet. R. Brashear. Histrionic Stunts The Dramatic Club is proving it- self to be an organization in every way worthy of the name. With a group of actors able to carry out his orders and capable of relying upon their own initiative, Fr. Jerome has accomplished wonders. His latest stunt was the greatest of all. Intensive Actors Wednesday May 5, the boys played the heavy and straining play "Lone Tree Mine." According to all rules this should have been followed by a long period of rest. Rut the Club as usual pulled something new. Two days after the big play notice was re- ceived that they were to put on a series of short comedies, Monday, May 10th. That left the boys three days in which to prepare. Williams. Thompson, Robertson and Krebs leaped into the breach and saved the day. Playlets were memorized in re- cord time scenery was planned, and properties gathered. And so when the clock slmwed the time to be 8:00 o'clock Monday night, the curtain rose and plays were produced which had never even been rehearsed. Wil- liams and Thompson played in all four of the sketches, Krebs in two, and Robertson in one. All played their parts well and the performance. were very stt'ccessful.

An all-star team of Notre Dame men, picked recently by George C. Philbrook, would line up like this: Catcher, Mike Powers, Athletics; pitdhers, Reulbach, Cubs; Dubuc, Cin- cinnati; Scanlon, Brooklyn; Murray Quakers. First base, Anson, Chicago. Second base, Cutshaw, Brooklyn. Third base, Birmingham, Cleveland. Short- s!op, McCarthy, Pittsburgh. Center field, Sockalexis, Cleveland; Williams, Cubs. Left field, Becher, Cincinnati; Daniels, Yankees. Right field, Red Murray, Giants. St. Mary's College in Oakland, Cali- fplia, has a record for sending men up to the big leagues, which, consid- ering the relative number of students it has to draw from, is every bit as favorable as Notre Dame's. A few years ago, when the Red Sex and the forcible, and as brief as he is de- , ,, ClSlVe. Phillies were battling for the world's championship, St. Mary's boys: were very much in the limelight. "Dutch" Leonard, star twirler of the American league for two seasons, and Harry Hopper and "Duffy" Lewis, whose mighty bludgeons played a great part in the series, represented St. Mary's on the Red Sox. Eddie Burns, who was behind the bat for the Phillies, filled evmT position on St. Mary's: teams from mascot to coach.
