G. K. C.--G. for Genius
K. for Knight
C. for Catholic
0 Chesterton the genius is the man with a mind. The man whose thoughts written on
paper have added something new and distinctive to English Literature. That mind has
coped with many problems: with intricate devices for untangling Father Brown's
mysterious adventuresi with refreshing and sparkling humor for his essaysf with cool
calculation and reasoning for his philosophical booksf and with a creative ability which
distinguishes him as a poet. That mind has answered many serious questions, that mind
of the man with a G. for genius.
0 Chesterton the knight is the man with a heart. Just as his knight Don John of Austria
with a heart full of confidence and love rode onto the battlefield to defeat the Turks,
so does Chesterton. instead of a Grecian battlefield he has Life, and instead of Turks
he has temptation and the jealous thrusts of inconsequentials who make it difficult
for true genius to thrive. But his heart is the same as the heart which pulsated in Don John
--a heart with love and confidence. Love of God, and of his work, and confidence in
his own ability with 'God's help. He called Don John the last knight of Europe-but
in the twentieth century one knight still lingers and that heart of the man with the K
for knight is Chesterton.
0 Chesterton the Catholic is the man with a soul. A soul with poetry for its music, and
Christ for its song. A soul that purifies his thought and deeds-a soul which ultimately
led him home to God-the soul which is responsible for the C for Catholic in the man,
Gilbert Keith Chesterton.

O t SCENIC BEAUTY
When the gradual September blending of greens and golds, reds and rusts occurs
out ol nowhere, rushing surging Aquinites seem to come bubbling with the "ioie
d'etudier" after three months of vacation. The erstwhile daring knights of squirrel-dom
now perch timidly on the leafy branches to view the antics of these strangers. And only
in the late altemoon when some stray students wade home through the leaves-and
when a restless cool breeze forces one to remark, "I guess it's going to get colder,"
do they realize that Aquinas in the autumn is a student's fairyland ....
Q Soft falling snowliakes from a starlit or sunlit slty, it matters not, for winter has come
Q The Polar loveliness of the whole spectacle gives birth to many a creative idea, and
literary Aquinas thrives.
I Frost-bitten and often frozen students now dash into school muifed and mittened
to escape the freezing gales. Their mingled applause at basketball, plays, and debates
echoes across the snowy paradise in childish defiance of the cold. From the snugness
of their trees the squirrels realize that winter is in power, and athletic Aquinas is off
to a grand start ....
' Without the first faint sparlc ol dawn, the bright lire of day would never
burn, without the twilight's soothing calm, hectic hours would never cease with
night,-without a guiding hand we would fail to cross the laridge that spans
the dangerous stretch from youth to maturity. Without the kindly inspiration
of a man who holds high the torch that lights the way, we would grope un-
warily along the course which leads to success.
' As a shepherd, he must tend his precious floclc of sheep-hring them
safely through the dangers which, lilce wolves, lurlc in the darlc ravines of the
hills-and then he sighs, happy with the lcnowledge that his floclc is sale and
wise enough to graze on richer grounds.
' He stands as a safeguard of the Seven Seas-and watches his boats, one
by one put out on the rough waters. His lcind, understanding ways, plant
confidence and ambition in the young hearts he commands. He strives to
avoid the squalls of the sea that pound and Batter-struggling to destroy, he
steers for the port of "Success," hoping that there, each of his sailors will find
the fulfillment of his dreams.
' To this good shepherd and great captain, our principal, The Reverend
Hilary Leuther, we dedicate this Trumpet.
THE REV. HILARY A. LEUTHER
PRINCIPAL OF AOUINAS
THE MOST REVEREND ALEXANDER J. McGAVlCK, D. D.
BISHOP OF LA CROSSE
A Knight not coming from a :ea-bounded
Castle ruled by feudal lords, a Knight not
clothed in traditional blue-light armor with
spear and shield for defense, but a Knight
coming from a cross-topped, steepled Castle,
with majestic entrance doors, ruled by God
alone. A Knight in royal-purple garb with a
mitre for a spear, a crozier for his coat of arms,
his ring the accolade of lcnighthood in the
greatest of all courts-the Court of Christ.
A Knight not leading a zealous band of
Crusaders to save the Holy Land-but one
leading a legion of youth to a safer ground,
away from worldly harms. A Knight not seelc-
ing the Holy Cirail-but a Knight building up
Catholic Action in the hearts and minds of the
children of God.
We need not scan horizons nor seas nor
mountains to meetwith this wondrous Knight.
We need' not search in endless volumes of
lcnowledge to see the penning of his name. We
see him often and tallc with him. For this Knight
of the Court of Christ is none other than our
Most Reverend Bishop-his Excellency, the
Most Rev. A. J. McGavick of the Diocese of
Without whose constant encouragement we
would never have experienced the abiding
blessings and benefits of a Catholic high school.

The year of '35-'36 was characterized by a number of events which
will remain indelible in the annals of Aquinas history.
Ari unprecedented enrollment of 575 students necessitated the im-
mediate utilization of the new wing which was completed in early
September at the cost of S37,000. Besides providing for a number of
new class rooms, it afforded one large honor study hall and a boys' new
Faculty changes resulted in Sister M. Loyola, Civics and Modern
History, Sister M, Matilda, American l-listory and English, Sister M,
Gertrudis, Mechanical Drawing and English, Sister M. Lina, English,
Sister M. Inez, Public Speaking and English, and Sister M. Gervina.
The Reverend .lohn Pritzl, after receiving his Master's Degree from
Washington University, re-joined the faculty to teach Latin and Religion.
Of athletics, basketball was the most prominently lime-lighted
Completing a record smashing season of fifteen victories and three
defeats-one to Campion and two to Central-the Golden Avalanche,
coached by George W. Schneeberger, received a bid to the National
Catholic Tournament at Chicago. Though they didn't bring home the
coveted Cardinal Mundelein trophy, they captured a beautiful cup for
making 14 out of 17 of their free-throws.
Publications waxed mightily in the nine months of school. The News
and Trumpet for 1934-5 won All Catholic honors. The year book
likewise received the All-American rating. The two news editors,
Thomas Dugan and Kathleen Rossiter, and Trumpet editor Albert Funk,
with the help of the combined staffs staged a one-day press conference
November 11. The conference was widely attended, and boasted such
speakers as Father Daniel Lord, S..l., Dorothy Day, and Dean J. L.
Ten Aquinas students attended the National .lournalism Convention
in Milwaukee in early December. As the annual Lenten play fostered
by the staffs, "Barter" was presented under the direction of Fathe
Leuther, March 29, 31, and April 2.
The topic of the day was Isabel Tuomey's trip to California anc
Sequoia National Park as one of the six winners in the contest spon,
sored by M-G-M Studios.
Several students garnered awards in contests during the year: l-larolc
Walsh placed second in the State Art Contest, Fay Gallagher was
presented with the Quill and Scroll Creative writing Key for her excep-
tional skill in headline writing, Mary Skemp being named one of the
winners in the Wisconsin Anti-T B Association contest, broadcastec
her theme on "Tuberculosis, the Foe of Youth" from WTMJ in
Milwaukee. Twelve prizes were won by Art students in a local contest.
P Forensic activities flourished under the tutelage of Reverend .lohn
The Dramatic Club presented "The Ghost Parade" January 17, and
feted the new members to a hair raising initiation, October 23.
Sister M. Dolorette accomplished a great deal with a mixed chorus,
organized a short time after school opened. It was under her direction
that Aquinas' first operetta "The Finding of the King" was presented
Mission activities were resumed with the new enthusiasm as the
C. S. M. C. was reorganized on a different basis, Director Father Pritzl,
and presidents Virginia Lemay H9351 and Emil Wakeen 11936, made
the Crusade more alive than any of previous years.
One of the profitable arrangements of the year was the use of the
local radio station WKBH. The studio was frequented by play-announcers
and potential musicians who considered the student broadcast feature
. . . This winds up another year-but it will have to be unraveled
again so that the scholastic year of 1936-37 may add its piece of string
and knot together the past and future .,..

ound which the 1936 Trumpet theme has been woven.

Fidels, "l.epanto," was used as a specific topic for the
evelopment of the theme on the divisional pages. The poem

I It is with a feeling of furthering
the cause ol religion at Aquinas that we
dedicate the second section of the an-

A Christmas Operetta Presented Dec. 19 by the GIee CIub
and Speech CIasses.
The Christmas Operetta, "The Finding OI The King" was presented at 8 o'cIocIc in
the auditorium by the GIee CIub and Speech CIasses.
To the much-Ioved strains of "Adeste I:ideIis," and "The First NoeI,"sIow-moving
choristers attired in cassocIc and surplice, and bIue and gold capes, moved up the center
aisIe with candIes IIicIcering IiI4e stars in the semi-darIcness. The haunting melodies oi
"LuIIabye on Christmas Eve," and "WassaI Song" sung by the mixed chorus, carried
on the spirit of the birth of Jesus. This was but the preIude to the operetta "The Finding
of the King" which was given on Thursday, December 19.
The operetta aiforded an exceIIent opportunity Ior effective stage settings, costumes,
choral worIc, and acting. The scene was an inn where a miserIy Iceeper was confronted
by shepherds, soldiers, and wisemen with the startling query, "Where is the King?"

Excelsis Deo," the birth ol the Saviour was announced. During the Nativity scene in
the stable the characters made their adoration and offerings. Meanwhile, the greedy
lnnl4eeper's heart underwent a change, and he, too, prohfered a gift.
The herald was robed in a green gown trimmed in gold lace. This part was sung by
Mary Higgins. The shepherds, dressed in typical Judean style, were portrayed by
John Kampschroer, Hilary Pavela, Philip Poehling, and Clarence Weiss. The angels in
the tableaux who wore gowns of white, lavender, and gold were Helen Deitelhoff,
Margaret Ryan, Grace Schubert, and Kathleen Rossiter. The Blessed Virgin wore a blue
robe and white veil. This part was talcen by Elizabeth Weissenberger. l.eRoyJustinger,
as Joseph, was dressed in a tan mantle and purple cloak. Melchior, Balthazar, and
Caspar, played by Edward Bartl, Emil Wakeen, and Carl Dockendorlt respectively,
wore rich robes of red, purple, and green with turbans and sandles of corresponding
hues. The train of attendants and gift-bearers included Norman Meir, Robert Eagen,
Gerald Moriarity, Richard Rossiter, and Edward Giroux.
Publicity for the play was handled by Bernard Noell4e. Broadcasts were given daily
over WKBH concerning the play. Bernard Noeiice spolce on general points of interest.
Julius Rottman built his broadcast around the chapter on Christmas from Alfred Noyes
"The Unlcnown God." Faye Gallagher traced the history of "Silent Night" in her
broadcast and Virginia Lemay spoke on the "True Meaning ol Christmas." The "History
of the Crib" was the topic of Alice Banasiics broadcast.

Q Aquinas Publications annual Lenten play, "Barter," was presented
forthe final time on April 2, under the direction ofthe Rev, Hilary A.
Dazzling costumes and effective scenery, worthy ol a Cecil De Mille
cinema, were two of the many things which made "Barter" spectacular-
The harmonious blending of golds, purples, and reds in the thrilling
colors of tribal gowns of Jobal, the insignia of the twelve tribes ol Juda,
the military costumes of Phanuel and Varrus, the lovely gowns which
outfitted Miriam and Rhea .... Words fail in describing the gorgeous
eltect of the real thing.
The scenery comingled with the costumes with a distinctiveness which
has seldom been achieved at Aquinas,
ln connection with the producing of "Barter," the important taslc of
publicity was competently handled by Mary Maloney who supervised
the broadcasting ol advance notices for the Play over Radio Station
Through the co-operation of the local broadcasting station the themes,
consisting of interesting local sidelights and bits of news about the music,
costumes, tickets, and staging, as well as the plot and characters, were
heard over the air every morning at eleven o'cloclc.
Those who participated include: Leah Higgins, Mary Cecile Mink,
Robert Guentner, Norman Meir, Thomas McNamara, Ruth Krismer,
Julius Rottman, Sterlie Taylor, Jessie Newburg, Lucille Klein, Eileen
Miller, Viola Young, Mary Maloney, and Mary Slremp.
' The stage and scenery crew ol "Barter" at work on the various details o assembling the completed set. From left to riglrt they are-FRONT ROW:
Le Roy Justinger, Harold Padesky, David Hyde, and Norman Meir. BACK ROW: Ruth Krismer, Viola Young, Lucille Klein, Marie Hammes, Catlrerene
Guillaume, Eileen Miller, Geraldine Guggenbuehl, and Cornelius Waters.
. Members of the cast of Barter, the Lenten play, assemble on the stage forthe last scene. From lelt to right the characters are: Victor Skaff as Oreb,
Jewish servant boy, Kathleen Rossiter who portrayed Lora, Jewish servant girlf Jacqueline Jungwirth, as the Mother of Judasf Albert Funk who played
Judas the Iscarioti Catherine Maloney, as Rhea wife of Jobalf Philip Kundinger as Jobal the High Priest, Inez Lyons as Mary Magdaleni Vivian Kilfe
who played Miriam, daughter of Jobalg Priscilla Kukolsky, as Esther the blind girly James Hammes as Phanuel the Jewish soldier: and James Zerneke as
Varrus, the Roman soldier.
"Barter," the prize-winning Biblical play of the Drama League-
vngmans Green Playwriting Contest for 1928, written by the Rev.
ban Nagle, O. P., was the choice of Aquinas publications for the
nual Lenten play.
This is the fourth consecutive year a religious drama is sponsored by
2 group. ln 1933 "Vivo Cristo Rey" was given, in 1934, the "Sacred
ysteries" and in 1935, the "Phantasy of the Passion."
Father Nagle, with whom an interview appears in the Queen's Work
January, 1936, is the leading clerical figure in the theatrical world.
Viola Young executed the ticket sales most ably and assured the
ancial success of "Barter."
Several people and organizations contributed generously to the
Sister M. Wilhemette cared for the ticket contest, and the home rooms.
Staging was in charge of Sister M. Ancilla.
The Art Classes under the direction of Sister M. Gervina made posters
for publicity purpose and a group of Art students painted several scenes
for the play.
Costuming was supervised by Sister M. Teresina.
The Loretto Club, Doerflingefs, and Barron's lent properties.
The Aquinas orchestra, under the baton of Sister M. Dolorette,
furnished the between-acts music.
The candles and candle sticks came from St. Wenceslaus.
William Nelson furnished the pillars for the stage.
The Larkin brothers and Sidonie Guillaume gave their time for all
three performances for make-up.
With the co-operation of all concerned including especially the cast,
"Barter" can be recorded in Aquinas history as a true success.
The reIigious work of Aquinas students can be readiIy
recognized in the Cathoiic Student Mission Crusade. Numer-
ous projects were accomplished by the Aquinas Students
during the course of the year. Visits to the chapel, spirituaI
communions, and frequent rosaries comprise the good works
performed during the course of the year. Students from each
home room urged and encouraged the student body in their
spiritual practices. Through the efforts of these home room
agents and the officers, a great change has taken pIace,
students are continuaIIy making trips to the chapel in asking
for help or giving thanks for favors aIready granted.
Father PritzI's splendid interest and efforts did much to
make this organization a success. A keen interest was shown
by the officers: Virginia Lemay, president- a February
graduate who was Iater replaced by Emil Wakeen, Alice
Jankowski, secretary, and John Rossiter, treasurer.
During the Christmas season, each home room was busiIy
engaged in organizing a box of supplies consisting of gauze,
tape, wash cIoths, and cooI ade drinks, to send to the mission-
aries in China.
The Catholic Worker, New York publication edited by
Dorothy Day, who visited Aquinas Iast faII, has cIothed many
of its visitors among the poor with the contents of two boxes
sent from Aquinas.
The "Cresto Ray" Mission of El Paso, Texas, reports that
their seven hundred Mexican chiIdren had a happy Christmas
because of the toys sent by Aquinas and other friends.
THE REV. JOHN PRITZL
Director of C. S. M. C.
Students generousiy contributed to these boxes and sup-
pIied funds for the postage which amounted to quite a Iarge
During Lent mite boxes were placed in each home room
and a generous contribution sent to the Catholic University
in Peking, China.
Typewritten sheets of religious practices were posted in
the home rooms and accurate accounts of visits to the chapel,
communions, and rosaries were kept. These are a few of the
ways in which the C. S. M. C. members have been kept
occupied throughout the season. At the monthly meetings,
which were usuaIIy heId in the evenings, entertainment was
furnished by the students in pIays and speeches. Interesting
information concerning the various countries, which were
suffering for their religion, was given in these speeches by

That the ensemble movement which is growing by leaps
1d bounds throughout the country has received considerable
:tention at Aquinas, is evidenced by the National Music
Yeelc Concert presented on May 6.
The brass sextet chose the stirring "Triumphal March" from
Aidan by Verdi as their contribution to the program. Players
icluded Sterlie Taylor, first trumpet, Carol Holland, second
umpet, Virginia Haas and Paul Mateju, horns, Matthew
fach, trombone, lrvin Bergh, sousaphone.
With Leah Rose Higgins as violinist, Marie Rudolph as
ellist, and Mary Higgins at the piano, the string trio played
vo oi the Preston Ware Orem's transcriptions. The selections
'ere "Theme in D" lrom Nsymphonie Pathetiquen by
schailcovslry, and Gaynofs "Slumber Boat." This ensemble
layed on May 7 at the La Crosse State Teachers' College.
In early January a group ol sophomores and freshmen string
layers lormed a quartet that has held regular rehearsals
etore school hours. Jane Beclcer leads the group as First
iolinist, Richard Wiggert plays second violin, Betty Sweet
. the violist, and Mary Ann Paul plays cello. Aiter a few
reel4s' practice, they accepted invitations to play lor the
Washington Assemblynand the American Legion Auxiliary
rogram in the Knights ol Columbus Hall. At the St Francis
Jurses' Banquet, the string quartet provided the major portion
I the dinner program. On this occasion Mendelssohn's
lntermezzou and "Nocturno" from "Midsummer Night's
Dream," "Minuet in Gi' by Beethoven, and "Love's Dream"
by Czibullca were rendered.
Vocal ensembles have been organized from the Mixed
Chorus classes and Girls' Glee Club. The girls' sextettes
rehearse two halt-hour periods a weelr In the group, which
made its initial appearance during Music Week, Mary Koch
and Katherine Wagner are first sopranos, Corrine Kabat and
Lorraine Banasilc sing second soprano, Betty Weclcer and
Norma Pender are the altos. On this occasion they sang
"Pale Moon" by Logan and "Will ot the Wisp" by Wirnrie.
A double trio ol select voices lrom the Fifth period chorus
sang "Spring Rainl' by Gould and "The Little Reachl' by
Horton. Mary Cecile Minlf and Elizabeth Kleinheinz are
sopranos, Ruth Krismer and Leah Rose Higgins sing second
soprano, and the alto part is talfen by Gerlaine Tanlce and
Mary Elaine Loul4.
The First year vocal classes have proven popular with some
lorty girls who are interested in learning the principles ot
good solo singing. The repertoire includes "Slumber Boat"
by Gaynor, "Longing" by Kerjull, "Cradle Songl' by
Brahms, "Kingcups and Daisiesl' by Aylward, "In Italy" by
Boyd, and "April, My Aprili' by Milligan.
The students partalting in these activities have entered so
whole-heartedly into the ensemble movement at Aquinas
that it will be an integral part ol the music department in

Blue and gold, capped and caped, Aquinas bandsters
wound up another year oi puffing and pounding as they
marched through the streets oi lomah on May Q at the annuai
district band tournament. Mr. D. W. Nichols, veteran band
master, led the band on to Class D honors this year and added
one more linl4 in the chain oi years in which the Aquinas
band has been a iarniliar sight at the band tournaments.
lntense drilling and practicing while on the march aided in
maicing the band one of the snappiest marching units at the
tournament. The lorty members oi the band presented a
splendid appearance as they marched through lomah with
the Blues and Goids of their uniforms glittering.
in addition to competing in the regular band contests
several loand members entered the solo divisions.
The band garnered a second piace in Class D at the district
band meet in lomah on May 2. As a marching unit the
Aquinas band was rated as being second best oi all bands
entered in the parade at the tournament.
Several soloists of the band secured placements in their
respective divisions. Among our soloists were lrvin Bergh who
was awarded second place on the Sousaphone, Francis Zahn
who achieved second in the saxaphone division, Marie
Rudolph with third place on the baritone and Jaclc Schoiler
second place in the trombone division.

Medieval history club member learning the rudiments of parliamentary
law, but these enterprising students do much more than just that. They
participate in ardent debates with a great deal of fervor, enthusiasm and
brilliantly decisive logic.
To stimulate their literary inclinations, their Historites concoct letters,
interviews, and anecdotes concerning celebrities which they at one
time or another studied in class.

The really unique feature of this club is that it "gives everyone a
chance" to demonstrate their managerial abilities since different members
were elected every week to Fill the presiding positions of president,
secretary, committee on program, and class critic. Thus, each member
got an opportunity to exercise that fundamental impulse to dominate
the occasion, besides having a great deal of fun, and incidentally, absorb
much of intellectual interest about history in a painless fashion.
The membership of this historical association consisted of the First
hour Medieval History class. The adviser is Sister M. Edna.

NEGATIVE TEAM-Lelt to right: lrvin Bergh, Robert Eagan, Albert Funk, and Richard Crowley.
A season of success was enjoyed by the Aquinas Debating' Teams.
Guided forcefully by the well-versed veteran of debating, the Rev.
John J. Pritzl, the debate circle emerged remarkably well. Father Pritzl,
returning from his studies at the Catholic University of Washington D.C.,
where he was actively interested in the art of expostulation, resumed the
reins of the debate team which he had surrendered to the Rev. Lester W.
Seemann during the year of his absence in Washington, D.C.
The question for discussion, "Resolved: That the several states should
enact legislation providing for a system of complete medical service
available to all citizens at public expense," was debated by high schools
and colleges throughout the nation, and is being discussed vehemently
by prominent members of the medical profession.
The members of the debate squads were, on the Affirmative: Cornelius
Waters, Norman Meir, and Emil Wakeen with John Rossiter alternate,
the Negative: Robert Eagan, Irvin Bergh, and Albert Funk with Richard
Crowley alternate. The question was divided into three phases, namely,
desirability, necessity, and practicability, each of these phases was con-
structed by a debater on either team, pro and con.
On February 5, the affirmative team motored to Tomah to engage in a
non-decision debate. The following Sunday the negative visited the
Holcah Study Club Debate Team in a non-decision debate. February 17
saw the Aquinas negative at Eau Claire capturing a 2-1 count over the
Eau Claire affirmative.
The Aquinas affirmative again swung into action on February 18, but
was repulsed by the Arcadian negative 2-1. Not dismayed, the affirma-
tive rallied triumphantly over Eau Claire to take a 3-O decision on Feb-
ruary 20. February 24 Viroqua tangled with the affirmative there in a
no-count argument. March 3, Viroqua came to meet the negative in a
The most heated debates of the season were those between the two
Aquinas teams. The Aquinas affirmative team defeated their fellow
schoolmen, the Aquinas negative team, in a strenuous argument at
Cashton, as guests of the Rev. Joseph Kundinger, on March 17. A
luncheon, prepared in St. Patrick's color and designs, was served to the
debators following the debate. Strengthened by their first victory the
affirmative again defeated the negative at St. Rose Convent.
Four lettermen of last year's debating team, Albert Funk, a former
debator of Father Pritzl's teams, lrvin Bergh, Robert Eagan and Emil
Walaeen, returned to hold a position this year.

"l'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter. . ."
Well the typing class doesn't talce that literally exactly, but
they do write, that is, type incessantly and continually in
their ceaseless pursuit ol perfection. Starting with the monot-
ony ol "a, s, d, l, g," they gradually but painstalcingly
advance to writing or typing voluminous business letters with
the professional air of a secretary. You'll find it's a lot ol lun
to learn to type at the rate ol 65 words a minute for is it 100?J,
besides greatly facilitating the neatness ol your taslfs in other
subjects. . . And if you talce shorthand, youlll possess more
power. But to become more serious, alter these would-be
elliciency experts master their brief-forms they finally acquire
the technique necessary to talce 120-140 words a minute in
dictation, and what's more, transcribe these notes baclc, into
distinguishable English. . . The most diilicult of the commercial
subjects by lar is boolclceeping. One has to be accurate,
mathematically agile, and alert in order to become a master
accountant and these requisites are very ably demonstrated
in Sister M. Ancillals various classes. Each boolclceeper has to
be the owner ol a miniature business establishment Cllwentieth
Century type-lceeping modern, so to spealcl.
Those who talce their worlc seriously usually find an attrac-
tive position in lile alter graduation, lor the stenographer we
always have with us-in this highly commercialized world.

The study of English is necessary for better grammar, speech,
:nd expression of thought. The Aquinas course is crammed
ull of ideas and interesting projects to attain these necessities.
The Speech Class has presented assemblies and patriotic
Jrograms throughout the year. Their most important production
vas "The Return ol Aunt Deborah." Each Friday in line with
heir study ol Parliamentary Order the classes conduct Speech
Clubs presided over by l'lilary Pavela as Chairman, Mary
teget, as Secretary, ot one class, David l'lyde, as Chairman,
:nd John Bissen, as Secretary, ol the other. Sister M. lnez
lirects the class.
Under Sisters M. Lina, Matilda, and Gertrudis the Freshmen
rave pursued the important phases ol English.
The sophomores have concentrated on bulletin board worlc
n connection with a study ol Columnists, classics, and words.
Joolclets containing weelcly themes ol the second year
tudents were one ol the main displays. Sister M. Celestine

The magic carpet of time carries us over our vast country,
and even to the mysterious lands oi bygone days in the
Civics and History classes.
Those fortunate enough to have American l'listory on
their daily program, found themselves in the midst oi an
interesting study of the progress oi our country. Every
event from the discovery of America by Columbus to
present day situations was studied thoroughly. Sister M.
Matilda, who directs this class, believes that variety is the
spice of life, and so, varies her class procedure with oral
reports, projects and open discussions. By talcing a course
in American l-listory, and by studying the lives and worlcs
of America's great men, one is sure to mold for himself
a better and richer character for the future.
Equally as interesting as the above mentioned was the
Modern l'listory class, under the direction ol Sister M.
l.oyola. Besides a complete study oi the governments-
past, present, and future-this course included occasional
open-forum discussion, oral current reports, and exciting
ln the Civics classes, also under the tutelage of Sister
M. l.oyoia the essentials of Modern governmental pro-
cedure were taught in a most up-to-date, current manner.
Oral reports on news topics also proved appreciative in
this class, and added the necessary variation.
Though anything but modern, the ancient history class
proved anything but dull, for if there is any class in the
school that has variety, it is this. Under Sister M. Edna's
guidance, the students climbed aboard the text bool4s ol
time and space, and were whisked through the centuries,
into the days oi Egypt, Greece, and Rome, where several
interviews with such men as King lut, Socrates, Caesar, and
other notables, were made. Several projects were made,
and oral reports given, all of which added variety, and
made the class more interesting.

presented. Katherine Skemp, a senior, and Managing Editor of the

The Aquinas High School football team, with its material
much lighter and less experienced than last season, tied one
game and lost seven games although under the supervision of
the former All-American tackle from Notre Dame, Joseph
Kurth, who was chosen as head football coach. Dr. John Fay,
from Marquette acted as his assistant and aided Kurth in teach-
ing the players the Notre Dame system.
The first drill brought out sixty-six men out of which the
1935 football squad was to be molded.
Fighting it out between the twenty yard marlcers for the

exhibited nimble-fingered ends and an improved line to
defeat Aquinas by a 34 to 0 score before 2,000 fans on the

beautiful 52 yard sprint by Dixon, after shooting off between end and tackle,
Logan scored its first touchdown. The place kick was wide. Logan again
marched down the field but the Aquinas line withstood the charges of the
mighty warriors in Red. and White on the 14 yard stripe.
With a revamped backfield, Aquinas then garnered two first downs before
the period terminated. Hackner ripped off several nice gains before Logan
gained possession of the ball near the middle of the field. ln the second
quarter Severson flipped a short pass to Knutson for the second touchdown and
Gilbertson place kicked for the extra point. A sleeper pass paved the way
for the next touchdown and brought the ball to the 2-yard stripe, where Dixon
plunged over. Gilbertson's place kick was good.
Logan continued its aerial barrage by flinging passes to either Gilbertson
or Hunter. When Aquinas had regained possession of the ball, Naegle dropped
back to punt. The pass from center sailed high over his head and into the end
zone for a safety.
Both teams passed, Logan-confidently, Aquinas--hopefully.. ln the earlier
part of the final stanza, Severson of Logan crashed over for another touchdown.
Red Olson passed to Stangle to the Aquinas 1-yard line and Dixon plunged
over. ln the closing 50 seconds Aquinas made its only real threat by driving
the Logan team to the 15-yard line. George Naegle punted and passed to
lead the Aquinas gridmen. Rich and Paul Mclntyre and .lim l'la'ckner showed
speed in the backfield, but the light and inexperienced line was unable to

On the Winona athletic parlc gridiron, the Cotter High football team avenged

victory over the Aquinas High football forces on November Q. This
victory made the homecoming complete for the Madison Academy.
ln the initial quarter the Golden Avalanche fumbled and an Edgewood
player recovered. This set the stage for the touchdown as Maloney
whisked a pass to Crimmins for the counter.
Late in the second quarter, Aquinas started a good line march led by
Ambrose "Amy" Coughlin but the whistle sounding the intermission,
halted the drive. Jim l-laclcner, a sophomore, trampled the turf for a few
long gains, but the hard slicing taclcles broke through the stubborn
Aquinas line to brealc up many plays which otherwise would have been
good for short gains. The heavier Edgewood line proved superior to the
light Aquinas line because of weight and experience advantages.
ln the final halt, the Golden Avalanche resorted to an aerial attaclc
in an attempt to brealc through the cogent defense of the Academy.
Many were adequately covered and Ponte, Edgewood baclc-fielder,
made himself outstanding by intercepting several of the passes. Don
Verthein, all city center, Harold Padeslcy, and Kenny Opitz were the
sparlcs in the Aquinas attack.
The Golden Avalanche ended its football season by losing to the
impressive and powerful Campion preps on the Prairie du Chien field by
the decisive score of 33 to O. With a siashing and non-stopping attaclc,
Campion scored eariy in the first quarter on a line play. The second team
of Campion was inserted following the first score and before the half had
ended, two more touchdowns were added up in the Campion scoring
coiumn. The Golden Clads held the Campion eleven on even terms in
the third quarter with Paul Mclntvre giving a very good exhibition on
Late in the fourth stanza Campion sent in its first team which quiclcly
accounted for two more touchdowns, one from an intercepted pass and
the other from a forward toss. Aquinas was outweighed and constantly
outplayed by the experienced Campion teams.
The superb blocking of the Campion Red Knites made way for many
long runs and also held the Aquinas baclcs to small gains. Paul Mclntyre,
in the fullbaclc berth, and halfbaclc George Naegle were the yard gainers
for Aquinas when they were able to penetrate the Campion defense.

After lagging in the first quarter, the Golden Avalanche courtmasters in the
ening game with the Alumni, rallied and was victorious by a 25-12 score. The
ening game was pla ed on December 2 before a large crowd. Rich Nekola and
'ish Derouin breezedthe netting to lead their teammates. Aquinas overcame a 2
int lead and smothered the tiring offensive advances of the graduates. Joe
rrouin, former Aquinas push-shot artist, led the losers with 7 points. Rich Nekola,
:lden Clad veteran, paced the men of Schneeberger with 8 points followed by
'ish Derouin, who hit the rim for 3 field goals.
Rallying to pleasing cheers of Aquinas fans, the Golden Avalanche cagers twice
:sed the gap between Arcadia and Aquinas scores. ln a scoring flurry they edged
ay from Coach Bill Cashen's Arcadia gang to win 25-21, December 6. Oppor-
ie baskets by Swish Derouin and Don Verthein late in the game enabled

Aquinas continued its winning streak, downing St. John's of Rochester 15-1.0.
day the 13th meant little to the Golden-Clads, who upset the Rochester team in
airtight battle on St. John's court December 13. Aquinas managed to gain an
rly 12-7 margin as the first quarter terminated. Joe Simones, who sent in high,
sy net-flickers, collaborated with Don Verthein to receive scoring honors. Excep-
rnally stron impenetrable defenses resulted in failure of either team to garner a
ge score. Tire two quintets battled on even terms in the last two quarters. Don
erthein and Joe Simones were standouts for Aquinas, while Makin collected 4
rints to head the losers.
ln the fourth game the Golden-Clads sauntered over the Red and White cagers of
rgan with a 37-23 scoreion December 20, launching a punishing offense in the
at half that left the Redmen almost scoreless. Aquinas led at the half 16-3. The
an of Harget, Logan mentor, staged a stalwart rally in the third quarter that
alked up 12 points. Meanwhile Aquinas had made enough points to maintain a
ie lead. Rich "Wizard" Nekola, diminutive dark-skinned forward, played a
uling floor game to lead the Golden-Clads in scoring and garner the scoring
rnors. This markzd the first time an Aquinas team scored a victory over Logan.
The Aquinas cagers parried and then thrust aside the offensive thrust of one of the
ongest Alumni teams presented on the Aquinas floor. The final was 15-13 in

offset, Campion Red Knights avenged an earlier defeat by winning 29-13. All
Lhrough the game "On to the National" resouncled throughout the gym. Campion
gained an 8-4 lead in the first quarter and doubled its score. As the half terminated
Aquinas was behind, 16-7. Bob Brenner, who filled the position of the ill Swish
Derouin, captured the scoring honors for Aquinas by sinking 5 points. Joe Simones
and Jerome Wiltinger draped the nets for 3 points apiece. Moriarity, Campion
orward, connected with 10 points to be high scorer for the evening.
ln the first overtime period of the season, Aquinas jumped from behind to
rhatter Arcadia's hopes of defeating Aquinas in the return game. With the score
ied 17 all at the end of the regular game, timely field goals by Don Verthein and
iob Brenner clinched a 21-18 victory for Aquinas. The Ciolden-Clads faced a 9-2
lisadvantage at the start of the second half but led by Rich Nekola the Aquinas
:agers quickly tied the score. From then on the lead changed hands numerous
imes until the end of the game saw the score knotted at 17-17. Timely baskets
ny Verthein and Brenner gave Aquinas a 21-18 victory. Nekola led the Aquinas

The Golden Avalanche ran wild against Viroqua High,1936titleholder of the
iouth Central conference, and won 48-29 in a return game on the Aquinas court
Jn February 29. Viroqua dominated the play for the first four minutes and garnered
r 7-3 intermission lead. ln the second period Aquinas started clicking. Rich
Nlekola found the netting for 10 counters, Bob Brenner 7, Don Verthein 4, Bahr 3,
and Padeslcy 2, before Alf Walby, Viroqua star center, was able to hit the rim.
'he half ended with Aquinas on the sunny side of a 31-9 score. Both teams
lternated in breezing the netting during the third quarter. After Bahr and Verthein
eft the game on fouls, Coach Schneeberger began inserting reserves. With the
logan, "On to the National," forever on their minds the Aquinas continued their
race-setting career by ramming up the count. The game was a continual march
rom one free throw line to the other as a total of 50 fouls were called.
Swish Derouin, all-city guard, regained his "court legs" and slipped in 11
ioints in the last half to give Aquinas one of its hardest earned victories over the
:ourt warriors of Logan on March 6 by a 23-17 score. Logan exhibited stubborn
:pposition and in the early stages appeared to have the edge. Logan maintained a
light lead in the first quarter and increased it to 8-5 at the half. Then Derouin,
vith magic in his "shooting eye," started the baclxboard bombardment. ln short
:rder long looping shots were flung at the baskets with Derouin doing the heavy
coring. Dixon and Peterson were high scorers for Logan while Derouin, with 11
ioints, and Rich Nel-cola, with 6, led the Aquinites. '
Friday the 13th seemed to hold unusual attraction for St. John's and Aquinas'
eams for by a queer coincidence the teams met for the secondrtime during the
eason on Friday the 13th. The tournament-bound cagers rammed up a 31-18
ount against Rochester to close one of the most successful basketball seasons in
he athletic history of Aquinas. l-lerby Bahr led the Aquinas scoring with 10
ioints and opened the net rampage with a field goal and one Scotch shot. At the
ralf the Golden-Clads led 13-6. Rich Nekola, Swish Derouin, and Herby Bahr
inited efforts to bring home the final victory. Francis Macken, right forward of
it. John's, opened the scoring in the second half on a long try but netting bombard-
'rents by Derouin, Bahr, Verthein, and Nekola gave Aquinas a 12 point lead.
rtanding near the center ring, "Smiling Joe" Simones tickled the twine with a
ieautiful shot. Breezers by Bahr, Simones, and Nekola and gift shot by Bahr
oncluded the Aquinas scoring.
ln choosing the all-city basketball team, the five first team members placed on

It was once said that the writer for poetl
is the one who can write of things near to
him without having to look far away for
an inspiration. So I have written on the
Waste-paper baskets! Look how they
shine and reflect the sun's rays Cspecially
on 27" below zero morningslj. How they
brighten up the entire room with their
olive-green faces and open heads, always
willing to accept "Iearnings," discarded
papers, buttons, rags, assorted banana,
orange, and occasionally, lemon peelings
with apple cores as a touch of added
Also soot, dirt, old books, caps, shoes,
gloves flatter three regainedl, gum, candy
wrappers, ice cream cones, candy sticks,
paper "model-air planes," discarded
"Dangerous Dan MaGrew" magazines,

slipsl, chewed up pencils, peanut shells,
envelopes, letters, pamphlets, a variety
of sarcastic, important, and mediocre
notes, jelley, scraps of meat, burned up
pieces of paper, charcoal, typewriter
ribbons, and other articles.
Consider a school room without a waste
basket of his first cousin, the desk. What
would a room like that be like? Wading
through the aforementioned maze of
articles would hardly be appealing to the
eye, nose, mouth, or digestion. Hence
we should be very thankful for said, article
and never kick it during moments of dis-
gust, an er or, on the other hand, happi-
ness. Ozefl, perhaps once or twice to
relieve yourself of the excess energyl.
Then we should always keep in training
in order that we may be able to deposit
a 4375, exam in the basket from the sixth
seat in the third row, allowing a bank off
Claudius Amorphous AppingaIe's slight-
Iy curved head and existing weather
cohditions. Lastly, we can always use the
basket as a chair or stool. Before putting
this plan into operation it is a good policy
to gauge your weight accordingly.
Our Basketball First Team
By JOHN OUINN fFrosh Star,
Babe Derouin is a mighty lad
His eye for baskets is amazing
The few shots that he misses are sad
But of the rest-his praises we are singing.
Our center and also forward, Herbie Bahr,
Is of the "calm, cool, and collected" type.
His push and hook shots are the teams
For working together and showing fight.
Rich Nekola-diminutive, fast, and
Bolsters up the forward wall.
Along with Mr, Verthein, his running
He keeps every one yelling in the hall.
Our other guard, .loe Simones is the name,
Called "Sigh" because of his lengthy
Is likened to our Babe, the same,
By virtue of his accuracy-quite a lot

Feature story ever written"-fAquinas
Author defies elusive fiend who
heckles the student-body.
"Student life in danger of break-up! -
The students must know at any cost!"
Beginning a new' series of articles by
that noted author-S. S. Von Dime-
Who is this immortal, never-to-be-
forgotten personage we so vividly remem-
ber and still know him not? Who is this
ungainly insecticide, this veritable Dr,
Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in the making, who
makes life at shcool one of constant fear
and worry? Who, l ask, is he . . . this
despicable, deplorable, demon who
causes even the formidable giant football
players to tighten their mighty biceps
and cast a protectingvarm around a lonely
damsel in order to save her from this
plague? Woe are we! Fate, thou hast dealt
dearly with us. . . Who, for the last time
l ask, is this monster, this vampire, locust,
and other form of low animal life, who
torments us with his under hand methods
of skull doggery and inhumaness? l'LLteIl
you who he is. . . He's the person who
slinks up behind us in a crowded hall
and with a deft flip of the wrist rids us of
our books and papers. ln the ensuing
panic that follows, he not only escapes
detection but his evil work is aided and
abetted by the trampling of feet upon
the books and papers-net result being
a loss of time work, and good humor for
awhile. . . What to do? What to do?
After giving the problem a great deal
of deliberation and deep thought, a
solution has been reached to wipe out
this rapidly growin plague. Professor l.
Solvent Problem-?of late from Aquinas
Chemistry Classl, issues the following
"After giving the matter a great deal of
thought, I have reacheda solution-Carry
a large sized rat-trap-6x8-between
each bookcover. The scoundrel will im-
mediately be caught in his villanous act
and will be brought swiftly to justice . . .

flash-lights. ln the flashlight, a ray of light
is flashed to illuminate the darkness, but
if one does not wish to be seen in the
