The College lost another of its faithful friends and alumni in the death last
September of Frank J. B. Huot. Mr. Huot was one of the first students of the
College in the early 80's. An evidence of his extraordinary diligence and energy is the large collection of geological specimens, many of which were obtained
through his instrumentality. All the specimens in the museum in his time, several thousand in number, were arranged, labeled and catalogued by Mr. Huot
himself, under the direction of Father Schulte. His interest in this work continued up to the time of his death; last summer he procured for the museum an
excellent specimen of a sword fish, perhaps the largest of its kind in the Tri-
cities. He was also an enthusiastic booster of the Alumni Association. His
death came as a shock to the College, which feels that in him it has lost an old
and constant friend.

The Graduates of 1914
Of the six graduates from this department, five have taken up the study
of Theology at St. Mary's Seminary, Baltimore, Md., namely: Leo Kerrigan,
Leo Roling, John Cash, Luigi Ligutti and Edward Rosenthal. The last named,
however, has been compelled to postpone his studies for a short time owing to
serious illness. He underwent a critical operation for appendicitis just before
Christmas, but he has been improving nicely and will return to work in the Fall.
