HE TARPON-symbol of Courage,
Strength, Beauty and Perseverance! It was back in the year 1931, when
the portals of Alcee Fortier High School were first thrown open, that
our principal, Mr. john R. Conniff, chose the Tarpon as our school
emblem. We may indeed feel indebted to him for choosing for us such
a truly beautiful and symbolic banner. V
The Tarpon, a giant of the sea, is the greatest American game fish.
universally known for his stubbornness and fortitude, symbolic of For-
tier's never-say-die spirit on the field of sports, in scholastic endeavors,
and to the outside world. Its beautifully slim and silvery body, often
exceeding 200 lbs. in weight, is the ultimate goal of many an American
angler, but only the hardier and more adventurous seek battle with the
rugged Silver King. V
The virile beauty of this denizen of the deep is mirrored in the
steadfast simplicity of Fortier's architecture, and its qualities of courage,
self-reliance and constancy are a perpetual inspiration to her students.
From these hallowed halls countless boys have gone forth and carried
the sign of the Tarpon to great heightsg many others have carried it with
them into battle and to death.
May we, who shall say our last farewell to Fortier, and all others
who will come after us and mingle their footprints with our own al-
ways remember our great emblem and what it stands for--an emblem
for which we would surely give our all-THE TARPON.

HE COMPLETION of THE
1945 TARPON brings the encouraging hope that the
foundation has been laid for a great and lasting tradition.
No school is complete without its Yearbook-that volume
whose pages of happy recollections touch every retiring
grad with a sense of solemnity. ,It is only as we are
about to leave that we begin to fully appreciate all that
has been done for us While here. We leave behind much
that is dear to us-our classmates and teachers, the varied
interests and cherished hobbies we acquired, the thrills
of the sports we engaged in. We leave our high positions
of honor in clubs and organizations and step to the bottom
rung of the ladder to begin our next endeavor, be it col-
lege, the armed forces, or a cog in the machinery of
industry. We leave with bright hopes for the future-
each of us treasuring the memories and recollections of
our four years here at Fortier. It's been a wonderful
time, a constructive time, of both mind and body. We
thank everyone so much who helped to make these years
so pleasant and so fruitful.
The staff who compiled this book hopes that it will
help to perpetuate the memories born and shared in the
halls of our Alma Mater. To all those whose diligent
efforts and staunch encouragement contributed to the
success of this edition of THE TARPON we are indeed
deeply indebted and most grateful.

MR. JOHN R. CONNIFF
ja the .Siftuzlenlff of the
.fgzree jorlfier Shoo!
HIS BOOK is the second
Senior Class Book of the Alcee Fortier High School.
Let me commend most highly the Inne Class of
1945 for its remarkable energy in overcoming the
many unavoidable obstacles thrown in its way and
its persistence in providing so creditable a Yearbook.
May the careers of the members of the Class
be signalized by similar success in the attainment
of all the rewards of honest effort and may their
lives be crowned with the fulfillment of all their
ambitions and the joy of duty and work well done.
THE Pl-IILQSOPHY OF LIFE
Y philosophy of life as well as of
education may be embodied significantly in three words, duty, work
Every individual-man or woman, boy or girl-has a moral obli-
gation to work in the performance of duty, duty to self, duty to his job,
duty to his home, duty to his community, to his state, to his country,
and to the Almighty, that is, to exercise and to develop his innate, in-
herent qualities and potentialities of body and mind to the fullest extent
of his capacity and ability to the end that he may become a highly-
developed moral, mental and physical human entity.
Necessarily, working intelligently, regularly and efficiently in the
performance of the individual's various duties, acquires skill, econo-
mizes time, and affords the individual opportunity for wholesome play
and avocational pursuits, an essential phase of human development.
Applied educationally, this philosophy requires a modern educa-
tional plant or structure, adequately equipped, a staff of high-minded,
collegiate and pedagogically trained, energetic and loyal instructors,
and a curriculum embodying subject matter varying in content and in
activities to satisfy the development of individuality, to embrace the
cultural background of civilization, to emphasize the problems and
relationships of present-day social, economic and civic conditions, and,
finally, to insure the creation of a well-rounded, cultured, practical,
high-minded citizen of our Commonwealth.

HE FUTURE of this country is in
our hands, the Youth of America. We inherit a nation of glorious heri-
tage at a point in her history when the world is in chaos. Our responsi-
bilities are grave, our opportunities unlimited.
To us falls the task of achieving the Four Freedoms. The words
of the Atlantic Charter must be the deeds of our generation. It is a
large order, but with America's heroic past for inspiration, we will not
The builders of America were hardy and adventurous people of
staunch hope and high courage. They came to their appointed tasks
with basic ideas of freedom and equality. For three hundred years this
spirit has prevailed in the hearts of Americans. The results of our way
of life are open for the world to behold. We have become the greatest
nation on earth.
To preserve the peace we will have to profit by the mistakes of the
past. We, too, shall make mistakes but because we are freethinking,
free-spoken and self-governed, we can remedy our errors and forge
ahead. just as once before in our history we could not endure a nation
half slave and half free, so today we cannot live in a world half free
and half slave.
While the din of battle continues to sear the soul of mankind and
the peace is yet to be won, proudly and with great faith we are prepared
to meet our assignments not as so many obligations, but as glorious
opportunities. Pray God we shall make the most of these.
To the Youth of America into whose hands Destiny has thrust
the torch of a golden opportunity this humble volume is proudly and

ISTORY OF THE JUNE '45 CLASS
By BILL HILLER
DONALD E. LAGARDE, President
OOK back to that memorable day in Sep-
tember, 1941, when we entered Alcee For-
tier High School for the first time. We gazed
at the surroundings with a mixed feeling of
awe and hewilderment. Where should we go
for our first class? What would we do if an
upper classman discovered we were freshmen?
These and many other questions were prevalent
in our young, unassuming minds. Then we
noticed an old friend of ours who obviously was
just as frightened as we were. This, at least,
gave us courage, knowing that we were not
alone in our bewilderment.
Finally some lists were tacked on the bulle-
tin boards. From these we learned which home
room we were assigned to. Imagi-ne our sur-
prise and chagrin when we were unable to locate
the assigned home room. How were we, the
Freshmen, to know that all the "even" home
rooms were on the Nashville Street side, and all
of the "odds" were on the joseph Street side?
At last this fact penetrated to the inner recesses
of our minds. When we entered our assigned
home rooms, the loudspeaker blared. forth in-
structions for the opening day. This was our
first contact with Mr. Conniff, the principal of
the school. As we wandered from class to class,
we met many new friends in the opening weeks.
In a short period we were taking an active part
in the life of the school.
Our four years at Alcee Fortier were spent
in a pleasant atmosphere. It seems strange that
we are on the threshold of graduating from the
school. Our years in high school seemed to
pass very swiftly. In these four years we have
been outfitted for our place in lifeg some grad-
uates will enter the armed services of their coun-
try, some will enter college, and some will enter
the commercial and business world. The mem-
ories of our high school life at Fortier will occupy
a warm spot in our hearts always. i
In our first term at school, September, 1941,
we helped elect Durell Hiller as Governor and
Tom McIntosh as Lieutenant-Governor of the
State of Fortier. The Junior Band director, Mr.
Thomas Kelly, was transferred to S. J. Peters
High School as musical director. Mr. Emile
Schillio succeeded Mr. Kelly as the junior Band
director. The Tarpon swimming team lived up
to their aquatic name as they won their eighth
consecutive Louisiana State Swimming Rally by
a wide margin. Colonel Hiram "Bookie" Brady,
first head of the Fortier Military Unit, resigned
his post as ranking officer. Guy LeBreton took
over the reins as colonel of the rapidly growing
unit. Eldon Broders headed an alert, peppy
cheerleading squad. Gene Honore, a june, '45
grad, was then a freshman cheerleader.

Miss Lilburn organized a Debating Club
whose first president was Robert Moore. 50,000
signatures were gathered to petition the School
Board for an auditorium and a gym. Because of
a lack of funds in the School Board treasury,
plans for the building of the auditorium and
gym were dropped. Tom Ficken was then writ-
ing "Fish Tales" for the Silver and Blue. Irving
Klein was the president of the February '42 class.
The Fourth Annual Civic Ball was held 'at the
Municipal Auditorium in December of '4l.
War clouds gathered on the horizonl Many
Tarpons answered their country's call add en-
listed in the armed forces. Albert Mason on a
routine training flight plunged to his death in
the icy waters of historic Lake Tahoe at Mather
Field-Fortiei-'s first war casualty. Captain Bill
Gaffney headed a luckless Tarp eleven which
failed to win a single game. Clayton Timpken
and Harold "Whitey" Peterson were chosen co-
captains of the 1942 Fortier gridders. In Febru-
ary, 1942, a Fortier Chapter of the National
Honor Society was installed through the efforts
of Mr. Karlem Riess, who left in March to work
as a Navy chemist. The first Fortier Bicycle Brig-
ade was organized in February of '42, the pur-
pose of the club being to promote safety while
riding a bicycle. The Fortier Funstival of '42
was a streamlined affair. One of its features was
a full-length entertainment of vaudeville. James
Blitch was elected president of the June '42

slight expendituresg the money, eight hundred
dollars, was' divided between three war agencies.
The annual Civic Ball was replaced by a stage
production entitled "A Night of Stars." Dr.
Hamil Cupero, director of Fortier's Senior Band,
left to become Specialist in Instrumental Music
for the School Board. Coach Jack Pizzano ended
a decade as head Tarp gridiron mentor. john

Jung Hotel with the music of johnny Dedroit
and his orchestra. During the fifth inning of
the For-tier-Behrman P.S.A.A. baseball contest,
the sudden death of President Roosevelt was an-
nounced. This news stunned the crowd, and a
moment of silence in his memory was observed.
Due to the President's death on April 12, the
Kiwanis Key Club dance scheduled for April 14
was postponed until April 20. The dance was
held in the basement of the school and was en-
joyed by all attending. -"'Senior A Night" met
with a big success, as usual. Buddy Bishop and
his band played for both of these dances. Thus
with the Senior Prom, four years of high school
life ended for us.

Honor Society are Stephen Ackerman, its presi-
dent, and Willis Foster. The June '45 grads in
the Kiwanis Key Club are very numerous. Al-

We, the members of the june '45 Class, wish
to express our sincere thanks to Principal Con-
niff and the faculty for the help they have given
us along the way. We earnestly hope that by the
time the next graduation comes around, the
clouds of war will have entirely disappeared. up It
is with a mixture of regret and joy to be going
oh to other fields that we say our last goodbye to
our revered Alma Mater, Alcee Fortier High. i

ORTIER'S custom of honoring her heroes
of war in a Memorial Service was begun
last year. On April 18, 1944, forty-four students,
who had made the supreme sacrifice in this war
were especially remembered and honored. Their
names were engraved upon plates of silver and
placed on a beautiful plaque which hangs in the
entrance hall of the school.
Since that day fifty-three more have died
for their country. Fortier paid respect to these
last at a solemn service on April 20, 1945. Three
men of different faiths offered prayers for them
and the things they died to preserve. In the
presence of their loved ones and of the students
these men of God brought home to us the mag-
nitude of their sacrifice and the great responsi-
bility which they bequeathed to the living.
This service was made practical through the
efforts of the Honor Society, which adopted the
Memorial Plaque as a project last year. The
plaque itself was a gift of the Cooperative Club.
Following the playing of "The Star-Spangled
Banner" by the Fortier Band, the Reverend john
Curley, S. J., delivered the invocation. The band
played a hymn and this was followed by a prayer
by the Reverend Robert Manning. Mr. Conniff
then read the names from the Memorial Plaque
and led the entire gathering in the Pledge to the
Flag. At the conclusion of the ceremonies Rabbi
julian Feibleman delivered the benediction and
the exercises ended with the sounding of Taps.

' HE annual Fortier custom
of celebrating Thanksgiv-
ing by distributing baskets to
the needy was entered into with
spirit and enthusiasm this year.
Thirty-six baskets from every
homeroom in the school were
taken to the doorsteps of insti-
tutions and needy families
throughout the city. A tangible
message of thankfulness and
goodwill to many, this project
was perhaps as enjoyable to the
students as to those who receiv-
ed the gifts. Under the direction
and care of the Fortier Chapter
of the Junior Red Cross baskets
were arranged in each home-
room and put on exhibition in
the school basement. Prizes were
given to the three homerooms
contributing the best baskets.
Three parents judged the baskets.
First prize in the Tbanksgizfing Bas-
ket display -was awarded to Room
415 Cbelo-wh second prize -went to
Room 211 frigbtjg while third honors
-were captured by Room 201 flower
Following a request
by the Junior Red Cross
for a decorative mural to
dress up the recreation
center at Camp Plauche,
Mr. joseph Smith and
his art students set to
work and in a very short
time completed the
paintings shown here.
The theme of "Pin-up
Girl" was decided upon
as being most likely to
stimulate the flagging
spirits of weary G. I.'s.
The annual floral offering contributed by the student: Governor Holley is shown accepting the Waste Fats

HE fourteenth anniversary of Fortier High
School was celebrated with a birthday
party Tuesday, February 14. The ceremonies
were held in the Band Room, as the highlight of
the evening was a musical program presented by
members of the band under the direction of Mr.
Emile Schillio. An opening speech by Mr. H. E.
Falbaum, president of the Cooperative Club, was
followed by short speeches of congratulation
from former presidents of the Club. Mr. Con-
niff acted as Master of Ceremonies and introduced
the talented musicians. Two piano duets by

violin solos by Mr. Schillio, two trombone duets

The cutting of a large beautifully decorated
birthday cake, resplendent in silver and blue, cli-
maxed the evening. The party, sponsored by the
Cooperative Club, was attended by many parents,
students and members of the faculty.
As members of the faculty, tbe Cooperative Club, friends of the school and students look

THE TATE OF ALCEE F GRTIER
Secretary of State
NDER the able leadership of Governor Bill Holley, the
Fortier student government during the past year made
noteworthy advances toward improving the conditions of the
"State of Fortier". The first term's General Assembly, which
went into office with Governor Holley and Lieutenant-Governor
William Gamble last September, made an outstanding contribu-
tion in presenting the State with a new constitution which was
ratified by twenty-seven of the parishes in a special election on
The Constitution was drawn up by a committee of the
Assembly from a draft prepared by Bill Gamble. Several new
offices and departments and a more rigorous organization were
instituted. Other changes and additions were a preamble, a
definite time of meeting, revised requirements for elected offi-
cials, and a new method of ratifying amendments.
George Gill was elected Secretary of State, Ronald Black
was made Treasurer, and a new Legislature was sworn into of-
fice in February. Steve Ackerman became Speaker of the House,
and Leonard Weiss and Merle Sehnert were appointed Clerk and
Sergeant-at-Arms, respectively. The Senate elected Eddie Con-
rad President pro tem, Willis Foster, Clerk, and John Green,
Sergeant-at-Arms. Among the several projects undertaken dur-
ing the term the most noteworthy were instituting the Advisory
Board of school clubs, furthering the project to blacktop the
rectangle, and the presenting of medals as athletic awards.

NATIONAL ONOR SOCIETY
ship, Leadership and
Service-these are the stan-
dards of the National Honor
Society. In every state of the
Union, and in several of our
insular possessions, there are
high school chapters of the Society-over 2700
of them formed in twenty-four years of activity.
The Honor Society, primarily an honorary or-
ganization, gives recognition to students who
prove themselves to be conscientious workers
with a desire to help themselves and their school.
The chapter at Fortier was organized in the
Spring of 1942 by Mr. Karlem Reese, then a
teacher here. The present officers are Stephen
Ackerman, Morris Phillips, and Sidney Vail.
The school treasurer, Mr. Stanley Fitzpatrick,
was chosen to be our treasurer. Five members
of the faculty serve as a faculty council, and an-
other as sponsor, to aid the boys in any way
possible. Much credit is due Mr. Reese, Miss
Cecilia Grimm, the first sponsor, and Miss Wilma
Lilburn, the present sponsor. On the faculty
council now are Miss Eleonora Wallbillich, Mr.
john Martin, Miss Ethel Pinski, Mr. Claude jones
and Miss Lilburn.
Under john Plattner, the City Council of
Honor Societies was formed among the 'several
chapters in the city. It has succeeded in organ-
izing a chapter at John McDonogh High School.
Under J. B. Kahn a memorial plaque for Fortier
boys killed in action was dedicated in April of
1944. The only activity this year is a plaque for
Honor Society boys in the armed services.

ITH fewer students on the staff than in
previous years, and beset with numerous
difficulties growing out of a greatly decreased
enrollment and the wartime shortages in metal,
paper and photographic material, the Silver and
Blue appeared at the beginning of the school
term to be headed for troubled waters and a lean
year. The fact that the school paper enjoyed one
of its best years in a decade both from the jour-
nalistic and financial angle remains a lasting
tribute to the ability, efficiency, enthusiasm and
loyalty of the editors and staff members who held
the reins of management and directed its edi-
torial policy throughout the year.

and the theme was selected. It was decided that
the book should be dedicated to "The Youth of
America." Surely one could not desire a finer or
more fitting dedication for a high school Year-
book. It seems only more fitting when we realize
that this is the first book if its kind to be pro
duced entirely by the students of Fortier. It iz
truly their book. To paraphrase Abraham Lin'
coln, it is a Yearbook "of the students, by the
students, and for the students."

i THE WAN D
HE ALCEE FORTIER BAND has distinguished itself on
several occasions this year, taking part in a large number
of activities. In January, each member of the Junior and Senior
bands was awarded a Certificate of Merit by the Music War Coun-
cil of America for participation in numerous patriotic activities.
In addition to these individual awards the music department,
headed by Dr. Hamil Cupero and Mr. Emile Schillio, was award-
ed a large Certificate of Merit.
The joint concert of the Fortier junior and Senior Bands
y was presented at the jerusalem Temple on Friday, February 16,
f 1945, and was directed by Messrs. Emile Schillio and Matthew
DR. CHARLES HAMIL CUPERO Longuefosse. At a Birthday Party of the School, several of the
Senior Band Director band boys presented entertainment for guests.

Hill Bonin, 2nd Lieul. Alan Bosworth, Capt. lVilliam Trapp, 2nd Lieut. Glen Bonin, and
Zml Lieul. Willianz Snow.
HIS past year has seen the Fortier Military
Unit take long strides in the direction of
greater development. Upon appointment as
Cadet Colonel, Hill Bonin confronted the diffi-
cult task of revitalizing the corps. The task was
not a simple one. With interest on the wane,
many of the staff officers gone, and a deceased
student body to recruit from, the unit stood
In October, 1944, R. O. T. C. recognition
was sought, but as the government was not estab-
lishing any more units of this type, the attempt
Soon the unit was built up to 250 cadets and
special classes were begun under the direction
of Instructor Colonel jack Pizzano. A review
of the unit by Major Roberts of the Army's
Eighth Service Command was reported favorable,
and hope is held that next term will see the
Fortier Military Unit a C55 unit under army
An obstacle course, lockers and showers, and
special classes on combat tactics now supplement
the actual drill.
HE Fortier Key Club, or-
ganized in the Fall of
1943, is fundamentally a serv-
ice organization for the
school, started by, but not de-
pendent on, the New Orleans
Kiwanis Clubs. The Fortier
Chapter consists of thirty-six members--nine
'-tx L ,"'
sophomores, nine juniors, and eighteen seniors.
New members are selected once every term on the
basis of scholarship and activities in the school.
This year's activities have been numerous, in-
cluding a dance on the steamer President. When
the Sixth War-Loan Drive started, the Tarp club
easily won in city Key Club competition by sell-
ing 540,000 worth of bonds.
Present officers are Alfred Evans, president,
Hill Bonin, vice-president, Andrew Mays, secre-
tary and Leonard Harmeyer, treasurer. The Club
put over the March of Dimes Campaign and the
Easter Seals drive. With the returns from a
dance given on May 14, the Key Clubbers had a
very nice banquet. Several boys attended a Dis-
trict Key Club Convention in Rustong an Inter-
national Convention in Florida was cancelled due
to war conditions.
Two district officers are members of The
Tarp Chapter. They are Bill Gamble, vice-pres-
ident, and Sidney Vail, historian.

NTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUB
HE PURPOSE of the International Rela-
tions Club is to foster a better understand-
ing of the problems of peace and of foreign
nations, thus bringing about friendly interna-
tional relations. Twice a year the Carnegie
Endowment for International Peace, which sponi
sors the club, sends free a supply of pamphlets
concerning international problems. Meetings are
held after school on every other Monday. At each
meeting a member gives a report on one of these
pamphlets, then general discussion of the subject
of the pamphlet takes place.
The International Relations Club was or-
ganized at Fortier by Miss Olive MacKnight in
the spring of 1943. Members are mainly from
her history classes. Miss MacKnight succeeded
in obtaining several distinguished guest speakers.
Mr. Wang of the Chinese Consulate, Mr. Werner
of the Norwegian Consulate, and Mr. Creighton
of the British Consulate spoke to the club at
three special meetings. At 'the last meeting in
1944, the present officers, Bill Holley, president,
Alfred Mouledous, vice-president and james Hai-
ley, secretary, were elected.
This year several new members have been
taken into the club. World peace has been the
subject of discussion at most of the meetings held
this year. A special meeting was held at which
Walter Ascher, a native of Switzerland, now a
student at Fortier, gave an interesting talk on

UNIOR RED CROSS
HE FORTIER CHAPTER of the junior
Red Cross has had a very busy semester.
Under the capable leadership of Gilbert Wade,
Morris Phillips, and Ernest Broxson, it has
achieved its goal in all sof the many activities
in which it participated. Both the annual mem-
bership drive and the war emergency drive were
oversubscribed by the student body.
At Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter the
junior Red Cross gave gifts to the poor and
needy families of New Orleans as well as a spe-
cial gift to The Little Sisters of the Poor.
Also this year waste paper drives were under-
taken with great successg the winners for these
drives were Leonard Marlborough and Ben
Stevens who together contributed 5000 pounds of
this vital war material. Magazines were sent to
service hospitals with great regularity.

ADI O CLUB
HE RADIO CLUB was organized at Fortier
High School in 1942. Started under the
able guidance of Clyde B. Trevey, its purpose
was to take care of the public address system, and
the club played a somewhat obscure part in its
first two years. It did not gain full prominence
until the 1944-45 season.
Courses in the International Morse Code and
in the fundamentals of radio, conducted by
Bernd Falk assisted by Melvin Moll, were taught
and proved very valuable. Difficulties in get-
ting the necessary materials for the course were
overcome by the members, who made most of it,
and got some from the science departments. This
enabled members to get practical application of
their knowledge. The Club has given several
programs over the Public Address system of the

ORTlER'S SHOP DEPARTMENT, located
in the school basement, has shown a steady
uphill climb since its installation two years ago.
Under the able direction of Mr. Harry Thomas,
many wartime shortages have been gradually
overcome. For example, certain tools that have
not been immediately available because of pre-
vailing war conditions, have been improvised.
The Shop courses offer students practical
training in woodwork, sheet-metal work, elec-
tricity, and ropes iknots and riggingb. Many an
ex-Tarpon, now in the service, has returned to
tell of the value of the Shop courses he took at
The Shop Department, constantly striving to
work hand in hand with every department in
school, looks forward to having annual exhibi-
tions beginning next year. Thus, though com-
paratively still in its infancy, the Shop Depart-
ment has been rapidly proving its value.

THE P ICYCLE BRICJADE
HE Bicycle Brigade was organized in co-
operation with the city officials for the
protection of the boys and their bicycles. Mem-
bers fthose boys who ride bicycles to and from
school? were taken from the various homerooms,
and the officers-a captain, a recorder, and nine-
teen lieutenants--were chosen from among these.
The Brigade went into effect when the Constitu-
tion was drawn up and William Oberhelman was
elected commander. Under the Constitution,
meetings are held twice a month in the faculty
room from 3:15 to 3:30 p. m. .
Lieutenants are on duty in the morning from
8:20 to 8:40 and in the afternoon from 3:30 to
3:40. Other officers open and close the cage at
first lunch, at second lunch and at 2:30.
N December 22, 1944, the Fortier Stamp
Club was organized. Having for its pur-
pose the promotion of greater interest in stamp
collecting and in the stamp collector, the club
has progressed rapidly since the appointment of
Mr. Emile Schillio as faculty advisor. Member-
ship cards were printed, and the officers, who
are Simon Ball, president, Chris Bosch, vice-presi-
dent, Adolph Deutschmann, secretary, and Rich-
ard Hagen, treasurer, were elected.
Meetings are held every other Wednesday
in Room 400 at 3:30 p. m. and at these meetings
members trade stamps among themselves, thus en-
larging their collections. Another feature of the
meetings is the tracing of the life history of a
rare stamp-its year of issue, type of paper, prin-
ter, and other points of interest. Prospective
members are not required to have any specific
amount of stamps. There has already been one
stamp exhibit, and next year a larger club with
many more activities is hoped for.

one of the most influential and outstanding
groups in the school.

Assistant Coaches Pete Maibles, Cecil Carver, and
S the curtain rose upon this year's version
of that perrenial drama known as "Prep
Sports", we find the 1944 Tarpon gridders tak-
ing their places for the first act a little backstage
as the most' inexperienced and untried cast
present, with little past and a dubious future.
The only name meriting star billing is the lone
returning letterman, Captain Leonary "Duby"
Grosz. The program announces that the Tarps
will use for the first time in their history the
famous "T" formation. Head Coach jack Piz-
zano, assisted by Coaches Pete Mailhes, Cecil Car-
ver, Stanley Fitzpatrick, and Harold Heidings-
felder, nods dutifully toward the director and
the play is on. H
Fortier? 0: Newman 7
, In a surprise, to end all surprises the Tarps
lost to a rugged gathering from the Isidore New-
man High school, 7 to 0 before 200 fans at City
Park Stadium in a non-league warm-up. The
lightweight Newmans registered their lone tally
in -the first period when they set the highly fav-
ored over-confident Fortier boys back on their
heels. After recovering a fumble on the Tarp
15-yard line, Gamble split the middle for 12
yards, and on the next play Wilson Shirley from
a "T" dropped a pass into Sam Sander's arms
in the Fortier end zone. Another pass, Shirley
to Gamble, clicked for the extra point.
Fortier 14: Peters 6
ln their first prep league game the Tar-
pons bounced into the win column with a 14-6
victory over the Peters Wildcats at City Park.
Climaxing a drive which began at the start of
the second quarter on the For-tier 43, White,
after an 18-yard saunter, crossed the Peters' goal
line standing up. Mailey kicked the extra point.
With but a minute and 20 seconds remaining in
the first half, the Wildcats struck back. Recov-
cring a Tarp fumble on the Fortier 36-yard line,
Foss, Peters quarterback, after one play which
netted 10 yards, faded back and heaved a nice
pass to Laurie, who took it on the 3-yard stripe
and scored. The try for extra point failed. The
Tarpons scored their final touchdown in the
third period on a pass from White to Belas after
White had returned a punt from his own 37 to
Peters' 37. Mailey again kicked the extra point.
Fortier 6: St. Aloysius 28
In their second prep league game the Tarps
bowed 28 to 6 to a fast and shifty Crusader team
before 5000 fans. The Saints' first stringers
started early and scored three times. Retiring
after the first quarter in favor of the under-
studies, they came back in the last stanza and
chalked up another tally. Breaux made all the
extra points. The Tarpons scored their only
touchdown on a recovered fumble on the Saints'
18-yard line. After several plays White skirted
around end and dived over the goal for the
score. Mailey missed the try for the extra point.
Fortier 0: Jesuit 28
In the next game the Tarps lost to Merlin
Remmers and his fleet-footed mates from Jesuit
High, 28 to 0, before 4500 fans. The Jays' first
touchdown ,came after Remmers returned White's
punt 23 yai'ds to: the Tarpons' 27. After a first
down had been inade, Caswell Brown passed to
Remmers for theiscore, the latter converting for
the extra point. The Blue Jays recovered a For-
tier fumble on the Tarp 18, and after two line
plays had picked up 9 yards, Remmers circled
end for the second touchdown, and again added
the extra point. The third jay touchdown came
as a result of a sustained drive from the 50-yard
line with Remmers plunging over from the 2-
yard line, and again adding the extra point. The
final score of the game came when Banowitz
plunged over from the 1-yard line to climax a
jay drive. Correa added the extra point. The
loss of4White early in the game, because of a
bad appendix hurt the Tarpon chances consid-
Foriter Op Holy Cross 73
After being stunned by a 63-yard run by
jack Ward early in the first period, the Holy
Cross Tigers came back and used everything they
had to down the Fortier Tarpons, 73 to 0, in one
of the worst defeats in Tarpon history. The
Tarpons' only scoring threat came in the open-
ing minutes of the first period, when jack Ward
ran 62 yards on an off tackle smash and was
caught from behind by Hillary Chollet. Grosz
picked up the first down, but the Tiger line
clamped down and the ball went over on downs.
Student managers Maurice Eagan, Delery Vega and
Williant Evans handled many an important chore for
the Tarp gridders and did a swell fob of it too.
Fortier 0: Nicholls 'I9
A surprisingly strengthened Fortier team
held the Rebels from Nicholls High School to a
19-0 score. The first touchdown came as a cli-
max of a drive which started on the Fortier 38-
yard line after the Johnnie Rebs had recovered
a Fortier fumble. Shepherd scored on a quarter-
back sneak and Stanley added the extra point.
The second tally resulted from a recovered For-
tier fumble on the Tarp 2-yard stripe. Seybold
missed the extra point. The Rebs' final marker
climaxed an 87-yard drive from their own 13-
Fortier 65 Easton I4
After the scoreless first period featured by
the excellent kicking of Charlie Jung and Mike
Bellipanni, the Eagles scored their first touch-
down. A kick had put the ball on the Eags' 36-
yard line and on the first play from scrimmage in
the second period Provenzano cut off his own
right tackle for 64 yards and a touchdown. Belli-
panni converted to give the Easton Eagles a 7 to 0
lead. With but 13 seconds remaining in the first
half, Provenzano again broke away for a touch-
down, this time for 39 yards. Bellipanni once
more kicked the extra point and at the end of
the half Easton led, 14 to 0.
The teams battled on even terms in the
third quarter, but in the fourth, Fortier made a
75-yard touchdown drive mostly on power plays.
The climax came with Captain Lenny Grosz
sneaking over from the one-yard line. Mailey's
try for the extra point failed.

ing a tough schedule of seven games, the Baby
Tarps were victorious in all but two.
The Minnows started the season off right
with a 6-0 victory over the Rugby Cardinals. The
next game was with the junior Rebels from
Nicholls, whom they defeated, 58-0. Going
ahead with their winning streak the Baby Tarps
defeated an aggregation from the Metairie Park
Fortier .......,..... ,
Country Day Varsity, 7-0. It remained for the
junior jaylets from Jesuit High to break the
three-game winning streak of the Minnows, 13-7,
in a gruelling affair. Easton, too, took a win
from the Baby Tarps in a close game, 7-6. The
Tarps bounced back into the win column with a
27-0 victory over the baby Wildcats from Peters
High. In their last game of the season the Min-
nows had to fight all the way to down a hard
fighting and highly spirited St. Aloysius eleven,
7-6, at City Park Stadium.

MR. PETE MAIHLES
THE FIRST ROUND
HE TARPONS opened the 1945 cage season
against the highly, favored Holy Cross
quintet, and were overwhelmed by the Tigers,
60 to 23. Fortier just cou1dn't match the speed
and height of the Bengals, despite the splendid
efforts of young Sid Keller, who tallied 11 of
his team's points.
Lack of height and inexperience again
proved an insuperable obstacle as Fortier was
downed by Wfarren Easton, 55 to 22. At the end
of the first half the Eagles were out in front, 21
to 8. With a remarkable display of courage the
Tarpons fought back in the third quarter to
score 11 points to their opponents' 3. Unable to
sustain their drive, however, they saw Easton
forge to the front in the final stanza.
Fortier's basketball hopes rested heavily upon the shoulders of this quintet. Left to right:
Milton "Tuite" White, Sidney Keller, William Meeks, Hubert Froeba, Charles Jung.
Fortier provided plenty of trouble for their
next opponents, the St. Aloysius Crusaders in the
first two frames. At the half the score stood
14 to 6. Then the Saints got hot and embarked
on a scoring spree which netted 21 points. When
the second half ended, they were well out in
front, winning by a score of 47 to 20. The final
quarter, played mostly by subs of both teams,
found the contestants fairly evenly matched.
The Jesuit Jays blanked Fortier 8 to 0 in the
first quarter and continued on to a 51 to 15 vic-
tory. jack Carson was top man for the Tar-
pons with 5 points, having becomeneligible for
play with the start of the new term.
With four losses and no wins, the Fortier
five upset the apple cart when they edged out
the Nicholls Rebels 35 to 34 in one of the clos-
est games of the prep ,season. Charlie Jung led
the Tarpons on to victory, going "wild" in the
third period and sinking three field goals to
overcome an early Rebel lead. The Tarpons
trailed at the half, 17 to 15, but outscored Nich-
olls, 9 to 3, in the third quarter, and led for
the rest of the game.
In the last game of the first round, the Tarps
were defeated by the Peters Wildcats, 38 to 52.
The Wildcats had a slim 2-point lead at half
time, and gained only one in the third quarter.
With a burst of speed, however, they ran their
score to 38 in the last frame while the best the
Tarps could do was 32.
THE SECOND ROUND
Coach Pete Maihles sent his team into the
second round with a little more experience and
a lot more confidence in themselves. The Tarp
five faced Holy Cross in the opener, and al-
though the team put up a good fight, the Tigers
won, 73 to 23. Keller, Carson and Froeba played
well, but the combined efforts of Chollet, Capo
and Heider were a little too much for them.
The next week the Tarpons battled the
Easton Eagles at Behrman gym in the second
game of the final round. The experienced and
favored Eagles took a 26-point lead early in the
second half and held it. The fighting Tarpon
five did not give up until the final gun sounded,
and the score wound up 51 for Easton and 25
for the Tarps.
The Tarpons next met the St. Aloysius Cru-
saders on the latter's home grounds. The favor-
ed Saints gained the victory, amassing 67 points
while the Silver and Blue warriors netted 29.
Sid Keller was again top scorer for the Tarps
and was ably assisted by Jack Ward and "Tutte"
The Jesuit Blue Jays romped over the Fortier
five in the next game, 63 to 15. The Jays took
an 8-point lead in the first quarter and continued
to forge ahead as the game progressed. "Tune"
White played well and was high scorer for the
Fortier again tried to break their losing
streak at the expense of the Nicholls Rebels, but
this time the downtown boys were not to be
denied and emerged on the pleasant end of a
36 to 30 score. The game was nip and tuck
from the opening whistle, each team matching
goal for goal with its opponent. Experience
told in the end, however, and the Johnnie Rebs
went home with the bacon.
After the thrilling game with the Nicholls
Rebels the Tarpons were determined to win the
final game of the season against Peters. They
met the Wildcats at Behrman gym and after a
stormy battle, took the decision, 30 to 28. After
a tough fight for the lead late in the fourth
quarter, Charlie Jung scored the final goal to
give the Tarpons the victory. Sid Keller and
"Tune" White also turned in fine performances.

hardest game, a thrilling, hard-fought encounter
with Easton, which they managed to win 20-19.
The next week the Baby Tarps clashed with
the well-organized Peters team at Behrrnan Gym.
Led by Billys Meeks and Louis Rey, the Fortier

The Minnows being undefeated thus far
were determined to finish the season on top.
Spiking a late rally by the Nicholls Rebels, the
Tarps went on to victory, 22-18, and reached the

brought home the championship.
