Brough. actual work of the school. Many improvements have been made in the school during the sum- mer months. All of the rooms in the building have been n ewly painted, the ceilings have received a fresh coat of white, and the stairways leading to the second floor have all been painted and brightened. New shades have been placed in the rooms, and the school presents a most attractive appearance. Later new electric fix- tures will be placed in each of the rooms, thus assuring the proper light- ing on dark and stormy days. The registration on the opening day was far above the average, and during the past week several more have reported at the school. Sister M. Maura, O. S. B.. is once again directing the school as Superior. School of Our Lady of the Holy Souls The School conducted in the Church of Our Lady of the Holy Souls was formally opened on Wed- nesday, September 7th, with Mass celebrated by the Rev. James P. Moran, rector. Owing to the fact that five grades are being taught at the school this year, there was a large increase in students, and the school begins the year wit hevery indica- tion of success. Sister M. Wilhelm[ha, O. S. B., is in charge at the school, which is con- ducted under the direction of the el[vetch Benedictine Sisters, and will be as last year, directed from the Cathedral. New pupils have report- ed since the opening of the school, and new equipment has been added to care for the increase. The Cathedral Parent-Teachers Association The first meeting of the Cathedral Parent-Teachers Association was held in the Cathedral School Parlors on Monday last, with Mrs. Wm. Boone, the newly elected president in charge of the meeting and with a goodly attendance of members present. Plans were made for the coming year and a spirit of optimism pervaded the meeting from start to finish. Cathedral Boy Scouts, Troop 8 The first meeting of the year of Cathedral Troop Boy Scouts No. 8, The statesmanlike qualities of Gov- -rnor Lowden of Illinois, were high- !v praised here by Dr. Charles H. He took Brough, governor of Arkansas from progress was made in the develop- ment of the future Eagles Black-board talks were given each night, and much l~rogress was made in developing th6 plays to be used. Beginning this week, an intensive course of training will be the rule every afternoon at 3:15 on the White City Field where the Eagle Squad is practising, and an invitation is ex- tended to all who are interested to attend. During the past week a change was made in the schedule of games to be played on Kavanaugh Field dur- ing the season. Due to the fact that the game with Ouachita College was scheduled to be held at Kavanaugh Field on the Saturday of State Fair week, it was felt by the committees representing both parties most con- cerned that a change should be made whereby there would be no conflict with the attendance at the Fair, or with the game, and so after a meet- ing of the College Athletic Associa- t[on, a conference was held which re- sulted in arrangements being made to play the game at the State Fair Park. The State Fair officiaIs, together with representatives of both Oua- chita College and L'ttle Rock College have worked out a plan to have the game the main attraction on the closing day of the Fair. On Sunday last, Coach Murphy of Little Rock College and Coach Hammons of at the State Fair Park and outlined the changes necessary to make the playing of the game a success. That the change will prove ad- vantageous to all concerned is admit- ted by all who are interested in foot- ball, and it should be the means of attracting to the Fair on the closing day an immense crowd of sport lov- ers. This will be the first game ever to be played in the State Fair Park, and it will be a tribute to Little Rock College to have this honor conferred on it. With two such friendly rivals as Ouachita and Little Rock College, the game should prove to be one of the best of the present season. Followers of the Eagles are now interested in making predictions on the first game of the season with the Hendrix Bulldogs on Friday, Sept. 30. Little Rock College has not met Hendrix in years, and during that time the Hendrix Eleven has come to be reckoned as one of the most for- midable in the State, while foot ball at Little Rock College has taken rapid strides in the past few years, and the Eagles have to be counted as strong contenders this year for the SLate Championship. Coach Murphy has some good material at the college this year, but it will be impossible to judge them properly until they have been in a game. They look good in practise, and should improve as time goes on, but as yet they are unknown to most of the fans. The game with Hendrix, coming as it does at the very opening of the season will prove the mettle of the Eagle Squad, and if successful should place them in line for State honors. A big program of publicity is to be inaugurated during the remaining two weeks before the game, and it is confidently expected that a banner attendance will greet the two elevens on their first appearance in K~va- naugh Field on September 30th. bur- w'th headquarters at Before coming to Ar- he served in a similar capa- the Chicago, Burlington & railroad and had received his mechanicsi' training on the |sylvania railroad. part in Red Cross and 1.917 to 1921 ,as he arrived here from World War work and was well[Eurpe' September 12, on board the in railroad circle~ of the mid-]Cunard liner Ascania.

M., has assumed his position as Assistant Prefect of Discipline and Prof. of English and public speaking. In the time that Father Healey was a student at the college he was con- sidered ose of the best public speak- ers in the institution, and. his ex- perience should prove to be .a very valuable asset to the classes which he is to teach. The Rev. Joseph Burns, A.M., Prefect of Discipline and Treasurer of the College has instituted an in- now.tion at the College which should prove to be popular. Each morning It he student body reports in the large hall in the Fitzgareld building, where a short conference is held. Devotion- al exercises are held before dismissal with Father Burns in charge, and an- nouncements for the day are made. This year, the students are expected to report at the college at 8:30 a. m. instead of 8:45 as in former years. The Rev. Dr. Thomas F. Smith, Professor of Mathematics who was so seriously ill during the past sum- mer, has completely recovered and is now able to assume charge of all his classes. Dr. Smith has introduced several new subjects in his course this year,'all of which have proved to be popular. The college will have a permanent Librarian this year in the person of Miss Ruth Osborne. For years the library has been in charge of .some member of the faculty, but due to the increasing interest in this part of the college work, and due to the large additions whieh have been made in the library, it has been decided that a permanent librarian should be placed in charge of the department. Miss Osborne has arranged a schedule of hours, during which the students may procure books, and consult the reference works in the library. It is an innovation which has already proved to be highly popular with the students. Donations While other schools count their donations in the thousands, Little Philomatheia club made a substan- tial donation to the college of bed linens, and towels and other neces- sary supplies. This club has always been intensely interested in the col- lege and this gift is a further evi- dence of their helpfulness. Mr. Thomas Murphy of the Mur- phy Disinfectant Company also made a gift of a substantial amount of house supplies to the college. Mr. Murphy has been supplylng the col- lege with supplies for many years, and this year, he made a gift which is highly appreciated by the financial authorities, coming as it does at the very beginning of the school year. The college is very grateful to Mr. ~Murphy. It ~s hoped that during the coming year that many more wilt imitate the ~xample of these good friends. and interest themselves in the needs of an institution which is doing so much good for the young men of the Diocese, and which should be the pride of every friend of education. I c0 ,Y ! Opening of Saint Joseph School The school year of 1927-28 at St. Joseph School began Tuesday morn- ing, September 6, with a Solemn High Mass in honor of St. Joseph. Rev. Peter Zell of Detroit, Mich., former pastor of this parish celebrat- ed the Mass, assisted by Rev. Al- phonse Favre, the newly ordained,_ as deacon, and Rev. Joseph Pobleschek, our pastor, as sub-deacon. Rev. H. Thessing and Rev. A. Lachowsky were also present in the sanctuary. Immediately after Mass the pupils were ushered to their res- pective class rooms for promot!on. All the students were then classified. The enrollment now registers two .hundred and eight, the greatest num- ber since years. The tenth grade was added which makes an enrollment of ten students for the High School department. Classes were ~dismissed at noon. A Symbol of Everlasting Strength Monahan's Memorials of mas- sive marble or granite are beau- tiful forever. See our designs or write.
