Address all communications to LOYOLA COLLEGE REVIEW, Sherbrooke St. W. Terms: One Dollar the Copy.


What, it may be asked, is the practical utility of such a Review as this ? What important purpose does it serve? In these progressive times of ours, when the cry of efficiency resounds on every side, it is but natural that some echoes of that cry should be wafted to our editorial sanctum, suggesting the queries that have just been proposed. The desire to give satisfaction to our inquisitive friends is our excuse for imitating the great Roman orator and figuring for the moment in the rôle of '' Cicero pro domo sua."

That Loyola is no mere private educational concern, but a great public institution, pursuing its course on broad principles under the public eye, intimately associated in many ways with public interest and endeavor, and aiming in all things at the common weal, is what no one familiar with its true character will think of contesting. It strives—and not without a fair measure of success—to make its influence felt for good in every sphere of human activity—at the bar, on the platform, in the sanctuary, in our national assemblies, in the centres of commercial enterprise, and, as the pages of our current numbers can well testify, on the battle-field itself. Such a link calls for recognition; some suitable means of communication should unite the College with its hosts of friends and patrons,

: and most especially, be it said, with those who have spent some years within

its walls and still hail it as their Alma Mater. For them, as loyal and devoted sons, a faithful record of its fates and fortunes must ever appeal to their deepest sympathies.

That such a Review is also a powerful stimulus to mental activity on the part of our youthful scribes is beyond all doubt and cavil. They are taught to note with keen eye the various events of interest that take place within the College bounds, and exercise their wit and wisdom in making suitable comments upon them, training themselves thereby for similar manoeuvres on a vaster field later on. For an institution such as Loyola may well be considered as a little world in itself, where the friction of minds, the clash of interests, the striving of ambition, the strenuous life begotten of emulation and rivalry are no less noticeable and no less acute than in the broad world rolling outside. It would indeed be a great fallacy to suppose that all the educational work of the


College is done in the class-room, for the theoretical knowledge there imparted must be supplemented by the practical training given in all other departments and notably on the play-ground, if the student is to qualify for the great battle of life that awaits him. In all this, a faithful record, open to the eyes of the public, of current College events from class examinations and wit contests in debate down to athletic contests on our spacious campus cannot but be a decided advantage.

Nor let it be supposed that the range of subjects is limited simply to what might be styled contemporaneous history within College walls, for a casual inspection will show quite the reverse. History, poetry, philosophy, natural science, social problems and other similar topics help to make up quite an extensive menu in this intellectual treat we offer to our kind and sympathetic readers. Nor can it be doubted that in the process Shakespeare's dictum is fully verified, *'It blesses him that gives and him that takes." While the reader is blessed by enjoying the fresh and original conceptions of the youthful brain, the author himself is doubly blessed by developing through wholesome exercise whatever natural gifts he may possess. The proud consciousness that the wheels of the printing-press are eager to start and consign to the glowing page in choicest type the treasured products of his fertile brain, ‘‘the thoughts that breathe and words that burn," cannot but warm his fancy and give speed to his pen. Perchance, as has often happened, while calling forth for a supreme effort his best native resources, he may discover some latent talent of which he had no suspicion and a budding genius makes his appearance in the world of letters. As a great English poet wrote of himself,

*'While yet a child and all unknown to fame, I lisped in numbers, for the numbers came.”

For in full justice to youthful effort it must not be supposed that the Muses are exclusive in their deeds of benevolence and reserve all their inspirations to bearded chins and hoary locks, passing by with disdain the youthful knights of the ball and the bat, or even the still more diminutive tribe with the unmen- tionable garment cut short at the knee. And thus it may come to pass as some enthusiastic patron of youth, or, better still, some affectionate mother scans the glowing lines, it may be given to her enraptured vision to behold another Daniel Webster or another Longfellow or another Washington Irving, or, better still, all three rolled into one, rise upon the horizon.

These are but a few of many reasons, which, be it said with all due modesty, should give to the Loyola College Review its raison d'étre in the eyes of its readers.


Looking back over the scholastic year that is now drawing.to a close, we find it has been а memorable one in the history of Loyola, as it marked our entrance into the splendid new College buildings. After the boys left, in June last, for the summer vacation, the days of the old Collegeon Drummond Street were few. Almost immediately, the moving vans put in their appearance, and, in a short while, nothing remained in the old building but the ghosts of the past. It may interest the older generations to learn that 68 Drummond Street is

now occupied by the Military Hospitals Commission as a convalescent home for returned soldiers.

The first Mass was said at the new College, in the Community Chapel, on August 5th, by the late Father Coffee, S.J., and by September 6th, the day of the opening, the new College had assumed a rather comfortable aspect.

In the meantime, several changes had taken place among the Faculty. Mr. T. J. Lally, S.J., had left for St. Boniface College, St. Boniface, Man. Messrs. F. J. Downes, S.J., and R. Durocher, S.J., had gone to the Immaculate Con- ception College, to resume their studies. Father Brewer, S.J., had been recalled to New Orelans, La., while Mr. L. P. Bradley had retired to the Trappist Mon- astery at Oka. The new members of the staff were Messrs. D. B. Zema, S.J., А. Courchesne, S.J., F. Breslin, S.J., and R. E. Kennedy, S.J. In September, Mr. W. S. Gaynor, who had been at Loyola for eight years, left for Spain, to study Theology at the English College, Valladolid, and Mr. D. F. McDonald, S.J., went for his Theology to the Immaculate Conception. During the same month, all at Loyola were delighted to see their old friend, Father N. Quirk, S.J., now resident at Guelph, Ont., who paid а few days’ visit to the College. In October, Father H. J. Swift, S.J., went to Florida for his health, and is now stationed at St. Ann’s Church, West Palm Beach. Mr. W. J. Sullivan, a new teacher for Second Preparatory, came to the College in January. During the course of the winter, we were pleased to have a visit from Father E. T. O'Gara, S.J., pastor of St. Ignatius Church, Winnipeg, and formerly of Loyola.

It was to the great regret of all that Father M. C. Malone, S.J., Prefect of Studies and Discipline, was obliged to leave the College, owing to his poor health. After a stay of about three months at the Hótel-Dieu Hospital, he is back once more at Loyola, and, although not allowed to do any work, is a welcome presence in our midst.

Father Malone was replaced, as Prefect, by Father J. F. Cox, S.J., who. for some time past, had been engaged in successful missionary work in different parts of Canada and the United States. Не has devoted himself whole-heartedly to the organisation and development of many College activities, which circum- stances in the new College now make possible.

Our readers will note that a large portion of this number of the REVIEW is fittingly devoted to our boys at the front, particularly to those who have given their lives in the Empire’s cause. To their families and friends, who have sent us photographs and letters, we offer our sincere thariks.

THE REVEREND JOHN C. COFFEE; S.J. Died at Montreal, September 26th, 1916.



The subject of this brief sketch was born in Guelph, Ontario, October Ist, 1857. Nothing distinctive or very characteristic appears among his boyish traits. He was in most ways a boy like other boys, full of life and vigour, much given to the pranks and games of his fellows, and not in any striking manner pious or studious.

Some few traits of his earlier years, which, as his life wore on, became more accentuated, are worthy of notice here.

He had always what we familiarly call a heart of gold, and his sympathetic nature showed itself where it should always be felt most, in his own home.

The third eldest of eight children, three boys and five girls, he not only showed his strong love for his parents, especially his mother, but insisted that the other children should do likewise.

Another trait of his young days, which grew with him and remained strong to the end, was his love of truth and manliness. This he showed in his blunt, fearless fashion, often at the cost of a shiver to his friends; but they soon learned to see the royal heart hidden under the rough cover, and only valued him the more when they came to know him.

Even as a boy, Father Coffee was very fond of travel and adventure. Many amusing stories are told of his childish wanderings, of the unconscious anxiety he caused his parents when he did not return from school or play. This trait, too, like others mentioned, remained strong with him to the very last; and, no doubt in return for his many splendid qualities and his great generosity in God's service, Providence furnished him with the means of satis- fying this longing to the fullest extent. His travels, however, were always in view of some good subject. There were no mere ''rolling-stone" journeyings, and wherever he went he made good use of all his faculties to gather that spiritual **moss," which was to aid his fellowmen and give glory to God.

Father Coffee's primary and high school education was gone through in Guelph. Later on we meet him at Fordham College, New York, where he completed his classical studies. He then began the study of Law in Guelph, and was admitted to the Bar in 1881. His sojourn at Fordham seemed to strengthen the longings he had always displayed for the life of a Jesuit Father, and during the five years that he practised Law—and with considerable success —his thoughts turned frequently to that higher life in which he was to do so much in his own quiet way.

At this time we find in the young lawyer a gift which few, if any, would expect to find in such a business-like form and manner as his. For years he had been one of Father Fleck's favourite singers, and the thorough training he received in this branch of culture fitted him to succeed his old Choir Master, when Father Fleck was called back to St. Mary's College, Montreal.

Those who knew Father Coffee in his younger years will recall his broad intimacy with the then classic school of religious music and the special delight with which he trained the Novices at Sault-au-Recollet for feast Benedictions or Holy Week services. He himself had a rich bass voice, and if poor health and weak lungs had not interfered with this natural gift, he might have, in later


years, filled with much success that perennial want of Choir Master in the College where he spent so many years, and whose interest he had so much at heart.

As was said above, Father Coffee travelled а great deal; and we find him first in New Orleans and then in California shortly after his Noviceship. His poor health had necessitated this change, and in compliance with the same desire of his Superiors, he went to make his Third Year in Spain. Possibly one of the places where his sterling worth made the deepest impress was at the **Soo," where, however, he lived but one year, as Curate in the Sacred Heart Parish. It was there that he revealed himself as a preacher of no slight merit, when, at the funeral of a great steel magnate, he held spell-bound for nearly an hour, a congregation more than one half non-Catholic. After this long lapse of years the parishioners of Sault Ste. Marie still recall with love and veneration the sturdy form and generous heart of this Lawyer-Priest.

Loyola College, Montreal, was next to profit by his good business judgment and his experience in all matters financial and administrative. Here he spent three or four years in the office, and acted as adviser to the late regretted Father Gregory O'Bryan, S.J. He was likewise Bursar for а time at St. Boniface College, St. Boniface, Manitoba. Later he was stationed at the Church of Our Lady, in his native city, Guelph. Here, among other good works, he founded the St. John's Club, which, due to his fine spirit of enthusiasm and energy, was, and is still, a flourishing organisation. For several years after leaving Guelph he was Parish Priest of St. Ignatius, Winnipeg, where he laid the foundations of the new Church of St. Ignatius, established an efficient parish school, and soon won for himself the esteem and love both of his parishoners and of all those with whom his work brought him into contact.

When, in 1913, it was decided to build the new Loyola College in Notre Dame de Gráce, Montreal, Father Coffee was asked by the Rector, Rev. Father MacMahon, S.J., to look after the business details connected with the enter- prise. This his great financial ability and practical business sense enabled him to do most efficiently, while still occupied with the administration of the Winnipeg parish, until his failing health obliged him to relinquish the latter responsibilities.

In the fall of 1915, Father Coffee's health was such that the doctors ordered him to go to California for the winter. This he did, but the improvement was slight, if any. He returned to Montreal in the spring of 1916, and though his condition was becoming more and more precarious, he still took an active interest in the financial affairs of Loyola College, until he was taken to the Hotel-Dieu hospital on August 18th. Неге he underwent an operation which afforded him but little relief. Until his death, on the morning of September 26th, his sufferings were very intense, but. these he bore with the greatest patience and resignation, ever cheerful and confident in the goodness of the Master he had served so well.

The next day, Father Coffee's body was brought to Loyola College where. it remained till evening, when it was taken to Guelph, accompanied by Rev. Father MacMahon, S.J. The Requiem Mass and funeral service took place there, in the Church of Our Lady, at nine o'clock, on the morning of Friday, September 29th. Many priests from the surrounding parishes were present in



the Sanctuary; the church could not hold the crowds that came to show their love for one who had laboured so kindly among them; while the school children lined both sides of the approach to the church and the bystanders stood with uncovered heads, watching in silence the funeral cortege as it left the church on its way to the new Jesuit cemetery at St. Stanislaus' Novitiate, where the

interment took place.

Speaking of Father Coffee’s death, the Guelph Herald said: ''His broad- mindedness and universal charity gave a special charm to his exemplary and priestly life, and his loss will be felt for many a long day by his host of friends, his sorrowing relatives and his brothers in religion." R. I. P.


Father and friend! Two words and all is told Of how on earth were lived thy useful days. Now art thou gone! The Angels sing thy praise, But oh! we sorely miss thy heart of gold!

Beloved by men, but yet a hundredfold Dearer to God! Thine were the Master's ways, The weak to strengthen, fallen hopes to raise; Thy glory—countless aching griefs consol'd.

No loud encomium wouldst thou approve, In such thy humble soul could ne'er delight; The high approval of thy Sovereign Lord Of all thy deeds was made the sole reward. But in thy goodness thou wilt judge aright The lowly tribute of a brother's love.




Arthur Smith began his studies at Loyola, when but a child of ten years. He entered the class. of Second Preparatory in 1909, and had completed his High School Course when death called him away. During the many years Arthur spent at Loyola, he endeared himself to all by his fervent piety and his gentlemanly conduct. His deep faith made him realise the advantages— nay, the almost absolute necessity of frequent Communion. Hence it was but seldom that Arthur did not prepare himself for the day's trials by receiving his Lord in the Holy Eucharist. Ever an ardent student, his more than ordinary talent was blessed with marked success, yet he always found time to take part in, and to become proficient in every branch of athletics. Always popular with his fellow-students, he was generally chosen Captain of the various teams.

On the morning of July 27th, 1916, he met with a sad accident which caused his death. He had gone out for a day's fishing on the St. Lawrence, a few. miles east of Cornwall, and while his companions were bathing, Arthur went out a short distance in a canoe, to set a minnow-trap.

A lady, from the river-bank, saw him standing in his canoe. She turned away for a moment, and when she looked back, he was not to be seen. The alarm was given, and the boys began to search for him. This was about 11 a.m. Every effort was made to recover the body, but it was not found until nearly 4 p.m. The canoe was not upset, and when Arthur was found, there was no water in his lungs, so it is thought that he was not drowned, but, rather, that he succumbed to an attack of acute indigestion, or something of that nature.

Though the end came suddenly, it could not find him unprepared, for his whole life had been a preparation for the final summons. Arthur never neglected to receive Holy Communion on the First Friday, even during his holidays. He had a tender devotion to Our Blessed Mother, and was faithful in this to the end, for in his pocket was found a rosary, a pledge of his love for her who had watched over him during life. і

Тће greatest sympathy for Arthur's parents, in their sore bereavement, filled the hearts of all at Loyola, masters and boys, who had learned to love and appreciate his manly and noble character.

Reverend Father Rector preached at his funeral in Cornwall, and on September 28th, a Requiem Mass was celebrated in the College Chapel for the repose of his soul. R. I. P.


1909-1916. Died at Cornwall, July 27th, 1916.

Great sorrow and regret were felt by Loyola boys, past and present, when it was learned that Arthur McGovern had fallen at the front. ''Terry" was known to all. He came to Loyola the year of our very first graduating class, and graduated himself as а contemporary of the present generation. He was the first of our graduates to make the great sacrifice, and his very promising career was being followed with interest by his College friends.

Arthur was born in Port Arthur, Ont., September 2nd, 1888, the only child ‘of Mrs. and the late Mr. James M. McGovern, for many years Dominion Immigration Inspector at Port Arthur. In 1900, he went to St. Boniface College, Manitoba, whence he came to Loyola in 1903. During the six years that he spent at the College, he was always a leader in his class and a prominent figure in all the school activities. Не was President of the Literary and Debating Society, an officer of several other school organisations, and played on the senior hockey, football and baseball teams. His former masters, in their letters to his bereaved mother, have testified to their great esteem and affection for him. Rev. Father Rector, in his address on Graduation Day, last June, paid a stirring tribute to the high character and nobility of this son of Loyola, who in his short career and in his glorious death had been the pride of his College. Father MacMahon also alluded gratefully to a practical, substantial proof which Arthur had left of his filial loyalty and generous remembrance:

Arthur graduated in 1909, receiving the degree of Bachelor of Arts, with honours, and entered Osgood Hall, Toronto, whence he was called to the Bar in 1912. While at Toronto, he was a popular and distinguished member of the Argonaut Rowing Club, winning a gold medal in the Junior Fours at St. Catharines, August, 1911.

Returning to Port Arthur, he opened a law office in 1912. Endowed beyond the ordinary with talent and ability, Arthur McGovern had before him a life of great promise and of brilliant achievement. He was a great favourite with his fellow-citizens, an exemplary Catholic, and a prominent member of the Knights of Columbus, of which he was Deputy Grand Knight.

Having become identified with the local Battalion, the 96th, and holding the commission of Lieutenant, he volunteered for active service overseas shortly after the outbreak of war. Не joined the 28th Battalion at Winnipeg in the autumn of 1914, and went overseas in May, 1915. In September, he proceeded to the front with his battalion, and spent the intervening months till his death in the trenches. In March, 1916, he was promoted to a Captaincy on the field of honour.

He went safely through the severe fighting in April, 1916, and the battle of St. Eloi, but fell in action during the desperate and glorious struggle at Hooge, on June 6th, 1916. Не was buried with full military honours and the solemn rites of Holy Mother Church, Reverend Father de Jaddine officiating, and rests in the Military Cemetery at Renninghelst, Беше in the shadow of a beautiful Franciscan church.

*"Think of poor McGovern!” writes an officer, '*who proved to be one of

the finest officers ever sent out." Another adds: ‘‘He was a favourite with every one from the Colonel to the теп.”

The following extract from a Port Arthur paper is an eloquent testimonial to the high repute in which our graduate was held by his fellow-citizens. His name is fittingly coupled therein with that of his close friend.

"Port Arthur mourns the loss of two gallant sons. Arthur McGovern, a Port Arthur boy by birth, is dead. Clarence Milne, a Port Arthur boy by years of residence, is missing and supposed dead. No two officers among all who have gone from this city were better known than these, and the report of what has happened drives home to this city the fact of the war, more than anything that has happened since the St. Julien, in April, 1915, when the first big casualty list came in with many Port Arthur names on it. Clarence Milne and Arthur McGovern were both of the highest type of citizenship, young, vigorous, capable, and even brilliant in their civil life occupations. They might easily and even reasonably held back at least until the demand for men was greater, but those qualities which made them good citizens in times of peace were just those to hear the call of duty in time of war.

No tribute that can be put in mere words on paper is too good to pay to these young men from Port Arthur who will never come back. To sorrowing relatives a whole city extends sincerest sympathy."

Later, in a stirring appeal for recruits, the same paper says: ‘‘ Voices from over in France are calling you: voices of Clarence Milne and Arthur McGovern, men of honour, men of integrity, of ability, and men with a sense of public duty, who have left as much as or more than is
