VOLUME 13 CHAPTER 2 April 2013
James West graduated in 1932 ...
Dr. James West '32 along with his colleague, Dr. Richard Lawler performed the world's first Human Organ transplant in 1950. Specifically it was a kidney transplant. Later he was also a pioneer at the Betty Ford Center. We had lost contact with him a few years back and only just found that he passed away last July 24, 2012.
The New York Time has an article on him here.

Doug Wiley '70 reports on the latest mini-reunion - Guys on ICE
Five Campion '70 Knights were among the twelve Guys On Ice at Quarterdeck Resort on beautiful Gull lake near Nisswa, MN in January. Dan Crutcher (Louisville, KY) , John Hartman (Juneau, WI), Joe Haschka (Minneapolis, MN), Brad Smith (Taipei, Taiwan), and Doug Wiley (Atlanta, GA) rendezvoused for a long weekend of fellowship, remembrances, storytelling, ice fishing, card playing, and a pretty much continuous hootenanny interspersed with Haschka's cassette tapes of early '70s hard rock and blooz tunes. We plan to do it again in winter 2015---all Campion Knights are invited!
More pictures and details of this event are here.
Other mini-reuions around the country can be viewed at the Campion-Knights Mini-Reunion Archives.

VOC - Voice of Campion
We are asking guys who were involved with the Campus Radio Station
to send in their memoirs.
We will add them to this newsletter on the fly.
In particular, we want to hear about the VOC station before it burned down since we are lacking info on it.
We will add that to the C-K Nostalgia page.
Check back often.

Well, the best one of my personal memory had to do with the day I was
co-DJ'ing with...not sure who...George, Dennis or Val...
Anyway, a fly had gotten loose into the studio...a rather large one if I remember
correctly and he was a real pain in the ass and aggressive with the both of us
as we were on air. I think I made the initial comment that I thought the fly looked
foreign to me, from another country. Comment to me then was, "why does it look
foreign" and I replied "It looks to me like a Spanish Fly."
Wasn't there a scholastic that was also involved in moderating VOC along with
Fr. Wiggins?? In either case, I was promptly reprimanded for making a sexual reference
like that on air and was suspended from broadcasting for awhile. Touchy, touchy. Must have been
something they read in "Modern Youth and Chastity." Which, speaking of THAT publication,
it forever changed the way I took showers.... :o)
Only the Jebbies....
