ford Berryman. The guests present,
about one hundred in number, in
cluded graduates and Undergradu
ates of the school. Music was fur
nished by "Pete" Macias’ six-piece
orchestra, and refreshments were
served between dunces. The dance
came as a natural result of the popu
larity of the reunion dance given by
the association during the Christmas
holidays, and it seems likely to he
followed bv others, since it was itself
a very real success, according to
Robert A. Maurer, principal of the
school.
.Mr. Maurer, principal of Central, In
an upper-class chapel on Wednesday,
paid tribute to Lincoln and to Wash

"The Quest of the Holy Oratl” have
been placed. ,
The unattractive bareness of the
lunchroom has been relieved recently
by largo posters which are placed on
the square pillars throughout the
room. Tho posters were made at the
suggestion of Mftjs Coolidge by girls
in Miss Summy’s regular drawing
cJmss. The placards are changed
each month in order to be character
istic of the changing seasons, and
help greatly toward making the
lunchroom a pleasant place to eat.

ance but wish to improve their serv
ices to their clients, or having some
experience nevertheless realize the
need of better methods and further
technical Instruction; and. finally, of
others who have decided to take up
| life Insurance but who do not wish
I to relinquish their present positions
; until they have had this preliminary
I training in the new field.
Approved by the local insurance or-
I ganizatlon. the Y. M. C. A. has pre

COLLEGES
CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY.
An historical club has been formed
at the Catholic University composed
of the various professors and in
structors. It embraces the three de
partments of hietory—general, Amer
ican and church—and includes among
its members some of the foremost
historians of the countrv. The uni
versity authorities have alwavs es
pecially fostered the study of history
at the Institution and have gathered
together a staff some of whom have
national and international reputa
tions. The club will co-ordinate ac
tivities and serve to attract to its
meetings the brightest scholars of
the east. A program of lectures and
studies has been arranged for the
Lenten season and the general pub
lic will bo Invited. Announcements
are to be made through the pre>s3.
The club will fester studies into the
history of the American nations to
the south of us. and some of the am
bassadors of the South American
countries have signified their inter
est by accepting Invitations to ad
dress the newly formed organiza
tion. The first address, on "Points
in the Economic History of Brazil."
will be given by Mr. Langworthy
Marchant of the Pan-American
Union tomorrow night In divinity
hall, at the university.
The Dod Noon Club held its second
initiations of the year on the evening
of Washington’s birthday. Six new
men were brought into the club. Im
mediately following the Initiation
ceremonies the members of the club
went to the University Club, where
a banquet was served. The principal
speakers of the evening were James
Freeney, president of the club; Basil
Kelly. Leon Hatton. James Breslin
and Michael H. Kerrigan. Leon Hat
ton and Ed Kelly entertained with
popular songs, while John Ballnt per
•trmed at the piano.
A new field for the athletic ac
tivities of the students of the uni
versity has long been an admitted
necessity. For lack of proper facili
ties they have been greatly hampered
in their contest games. The students
have always offered excellent ma
terlal and the justification of their
playing ability would seem to lie in
a suitable stadium. This may not be
realized for a few years to come.
However, a most desirable site has
been put aside for this purpose The
students already have raised a con
siderable amount of monev among
themselves and in order to raise the
*IO.OOO yet required, an appeal has
been sent out to the public. Regard
less of whether a sufficient amount is
, raised to complete the whole work
It Is expected that the site will be
drained and the field in readiness for
j the foot ball season.

was also the first dean of the Sisters’
College, and Mgr. Pace, present di
rector of studies, and Is now being
continued under the auspices of the
department of education of the Cath
olic University.

Mgr. Henry the great Importance
of such work was Impressed upon the

GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY.
Through the generosity of a promi
nent Washington woman Georgetown
University is in a position now to
burn the mortgage on the netn home
for nurses at the university hospital.
Announcement of a gift of *50,000
to the hospital, which will make pos
sible the clearing of the remaining
Indebtedness on the nurses’ home,
was announced yesterday fhrough the
Georgetown Endowment Association.
For the present it is the wish of the
dotjof that her name bo withheld from
the public.
For nearly three-fourths of a cen
tury the Georgetown Medical School,
pioneer Catholic medical school in
the United States, has maintained a
standard of education of the highest
clans practically without an endow
ment. Radical changes in the tech
nique of medical training, however,
necessitate the raising of an adequate
endowment for the medical branch It
it Is to maintain Its present standing
as a “class A” school. It is the hope
of the university to raise an endow
ment of at least *1,000.000 for the
medical school and hospital, so as to
enable the Institutions to keep up
with the latest laboratory equipment.
"The school, with little or no en
dowment, cannot conform to the re
quirements of ‘class A’ schools,” said
Dr. John Foote, prominent Washing
ton physician and member of the
Georgetown staff, "and many such
have been forced to close their doors.
Already this action has been taken
by more than one medical school con
nected with Catholic teaching insti
tutions. It Is very certain In a short
time no university under Catholic
control will have a school of medi
cine unless steps are taken at the
earliest possible moment to endow at
least one of these surviving faculties.
fIUH-.rofoOlc ? li ietaol eta a s
"The question as to whether Catho
lic medical schools are needed 1s an
swered by the fact that such schools
have been founded and have been
well supported in the past. A great
medical school may be said to be a
school which has produced great
physicians. The brilliant roster of
the graduates of the medical depart
ment of Georgetown University fixes
its status a» a teaching institution.
"To have a medical school under
any auspices properly endowed and
equipped will require a minimum of i
$1,000,000. The plant at Georgetown j
is valuable and the laboratory equip
ment fairly adequate though capable
of improvement. To maintain this
splendid old Institution as a class A
school will require, under the ever
rising standards, a sum many times
the amount of the fees paid by stu
dents each year.
"The pioneer Catholic . medical
school, after nearly three-quarters of
a century, should not be forced to
* close its doors with the acknowledg
ment that Catholic educational insti
tutions are fundamentally inferior f.o
other and competing: schools because
they cannot maintain and pay even
the minimum number of professional
teachers required by modern educa
tional standards."
Members of the staff of the Polish
legation will give the eight remain
ing lectures in the series on the civili
sation and commerce of Poland a.r
ranged ander auspices of the School
of Foreign Service. The next lecture,

of the University of Lwow. formerly

University of California, will be given
Wednesday evening at 8:20 o’clock.
Dr. Ehrlich will deliver five lectures

ings. April 4, Prince Albert Radzl

tion. will speak on "The Immigration
Problems of Poland." Hippollt Ollwlc.

HOWARD UNIVERSITY.
Popular interest in the Gilbcrt-Sul — 1
Hvan Japanese comic opera master- **
piece, "The Mikado.” which is to oe’ n
given by the Howard University
Choral Society at the Lincoln Theater”’'
Thursday evening, is evidenced by the”'*
large number of patrons who already,
have made reservations.
The especial interest which is being*
exhibited in "The Mikado" probably la
due to the fact that it is the moat H
ambitious production which the srtu-p f
dents of Howard University have evar,»
undertaken. The students are being;',
trained under the supervision of pro- l!t
fessional directors, which assures the,, a
production <>f the opera in a purely ”

secured from New York city. There. j
Is required for the production an on - ‘j
semble of seventy-five principals and ‘ 0
