Psalm cii.20 In the spirit world around us dwell the most per- fect of God's creatures, the angels. All the earth's beauty would fade into nothingness if we could but for an instant behold them as they are in Heaven, bathed in a light that radiates from the Divine Being. Jacob in his sleep saw "a ladder standing upon the earth, and the top thereof touching heaven: the angels also of God ascending and descending by itg and the Lord leaning upon the ladder .... " Sacred Scripture tells us the multitude of angels is divided into nine choirs, each constituting a hierarchy of three which we will meet in the sections of this volume. The Kingdom of Heaven, as all kingdoms, has enemies that endanger its peace and it must have a means of defense. Still there are no clash of swords, no trumpets sounding, no futile warfareg for the angels have on the armour of God . . . having their loins girt about with truth, and having on the breast- plate of justice. Over this spiritual fort of invincible power floats their golden banner upon which appear two words that bring heavenly peace and happiness, "Pro Deo." In editing this 1939 Trumpet we desire to establish a comparison in the work of God's angelic army with our army of youth as we both unite in loving service and praise under the precious banner "Pro Deo." Long after this volume has been closed may the readers picture in happy reverie the fond school day memories and trace the sweet hours made even more tender in knowing that in our small way we are still serving God in His host of earthly defenders by putting on the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God. Bless the Lord, all ye His hosts: You ministers of His That do His will. Psalm cii.21 PRC DEG like 5 9 21 v' F A O Jesus, life spring of the soul, The Father's power, and glory bright! Thee with the angels we extolg From Thee they draw their life and light. Thy thousand thousand hosts are spread Embattled o'er the azure skyg But Michael bears Thy standard dread, And lifts the mighty cross on high. Vesper Hymn Page 5 3 U- Dedication N 'ruff' x 3.

In the beginning God created the angels-to share His happiness, to dwell with Him in heaven, praising, giving glory. Then He made man and gave him a beautiful earth on which to dwell. But the diffusion of His love still did not cease. He wanted to be sure His creatures would one day attain happiness with Him. So He placed at their disposal a means-a glorious, triumphant means, the Church, and in it He placed militant leaders. One day as He looked down from His great throne in that distant realm, He saw a young school with great ambitions and high ideals-a part of His Church. It had accomplished much with a kind, loving Bishop to guide, a most capable principal to rule, and understanding teachers to advise. - But there were even greater things to be achieved. So, in His great goodness, He sent someone among them, on March 1, 1935, someone who was to give just the added bit of strength and inspiration that would lead Aquinas to new, unconquered heights. This new friend was of such a dynamic persontlity, he was such a staunch supporter of all that was near to them, that the students found in him a delightful superior-one to be loved, trusted, reveredg with his easy friendliness he became at once a definite part of their school existence. However, he had another mission, identical with Christ's, to direct then spiritual lives. Thus it was, that his greatest service to Aquinas was a spiritual favor. He instilled into the school a spirit of loving, compelling, triumphant Catholic Action! Through his efforts Aquinas became a sort of watchword in sodality lnstory as exemplified by its active all-school organization and the suc- cessful annual Marian Congresses. In CYO activities he assumed unusual, magnificent leadership as general director in the diocese of La Crosse. Thus scholastically, socially, and spiritually, he became a profound influence on the young lives of these students. And as their debt to him increased, their admiration and fondness for him grew. If they could but show their appreciation in some way. Then God looked down once again. He saw their desire and this, their effort. It was so little in return for so much. But he would under- stand. He would accept it as a fervent "Thank you." So to him, His Excellency the most Reverend Bishop William R. Ibn-hsusss xxx-...s Page 6 ,. V-gk, . Y X, f 4 .N if 3. f. hi .ff v 'gf 'X' Eg .si L a ,A rf. 0 Lord, permit us here to raise our voice, And waft before Thy throne our feeble praise, And thank Thee for those angels whom Thy choice Hath lent our weakness to direct its ways, And free us from the envious foes that lurk To spoil the beauty of Thy cherished work. M atins Page S .AL Mb l E. Tig In the first circles, they whom thou lzeholdest Are Seraphim and Cheruhim . . . Those That round them fleet, gazing the Godhead next, Are Thrones, in whom the first trine ends. And All are blessed even as their sight descends Deeper into the Truth. Paradiso In the glorious ranks of God's angelic army, the Seraphim perform an im- portant function. Their love keeps them closest to God Himself, serving and glori- fying none other than the "Lord of Hosts." We truly find the same intense love of God in our two beloved bishops to whom God has bequeathed the superior duties of earthly seraphim. Serving God as messengers with the "alternate seraphim" are the Cherubim who praise and lorify God, representing His Divine Wissom and bespeaking His voice. In mortal comparison are our priests, through whom is incessantly heard the voice of God. Living in close union with God are the Thrones whose chief characteristic is obedience to His Will and the bearing of Him to other creatures. In poetical beauty we wish to think of our beloved teachers as these messengers of God who give their all in submission to God's Almighty pleasure. 'favur XQQNXV ,mx wx, A 1 V n I .

The past at Aquinas with all your efforts in acquiring knowledge, in building character and in spiritual development, is now a closed book, it cannot be changed or gone over again. There is no second trial. The future for you is, however, an open book and what you will write there in time to come is something which you should think deeply and seriously about as you go forth from Aquinas, not to return. Aquinas is a Catholic school and its aim is, and always will be, to impart religious as well as scholastic training, in harmony with the spirit and teaching of the Church. Without minimizing the temporal, it makes the cultivation of the Christ-life or union with Christ the supreme purpose of education. There are many other elements which receive attention but they are all secondary to the one all-important spiritual objective, the quest for the pearl of great price, the Kingdom of God and His justice. - This great fact, I know, you have kept in view during the past four years and have given to it, no doubt, the attention it deserves, but it is the future that I am anxious about. If you fail spiritually hereafter, then all your efforts and ours likewise, will have been in vain and Aquinas might as well have never been. - There is no particular test of fidelity in that respect which I know of, ezgcept one, and while that may not be wholly decisive in the broad View of things, it will furnish, nevertheless, a fair means of formingla judgment. That test is the continuation of your active and devoted membership in the Sodality of Our Lady beyond school days. I have been most pleased and edified by your work in the Sodality, your fidelity, your constancy, your interest in all those things which make a Sodality what it should be and which render such honor to Our Lord and His Blessed Mother. ' Will you continue to associate yourselves actively with the Sodality in your respective parishes after you leave Aquinas? Will you in days to come be leaders in your parish Sodalities, walking before others less favored as a light on their paths, and that not just for a little while but on and on, into manhood and womanhood? That is the matter which gives me concern. Therein is the test. I pray you to be in that respect loyal and true. Shrink not from the small sacrifices which it involves. The rewards which will come from such a course will far outweigh any difficulties found in it. May God bless and protect you. I wish you success in life, temporal and eternal, and you will remember that the same road, through faith and truth and righteousness, leads to both. 1' ALEXANDER J.

To write our sentiments down in a year book is no simple task. Hence, I believe that this is one of the reasons why poetry and art are employed to tell the tory of a school's feelings not in one essay but in an entire volume. My first impulse at this moment as I write my valedic- tory to you Seniors of 1939, is to do so in the form of a prayer-a blessing. You know too well that such are always yours till the end of time. The hardships of your school life are too clear in your minds for us to reminisce. Yet soon the glory of that June night will give your school life the glamor of things gone by. I am happy, however, to allude Very briefly to the theme of your year book, as perhaps the best interpretation of your high-school career and of your futurejf' LANA3 ' Q kg, ,PW ' ,B T Qljagffvie N Principals Message The theme of your annual is "Pro Deo." This is artistically and poetically executed through the angels-God's ministers who serve Him in this world and adore and obey Him before the "great white throne." This idea can give you your en- tire life's perspective. There's no room for gross materialism in the minds of youth inspired by the realities of the spirit world. How often we forget that "Daily, with souls' that cringe and plot, we Sinais climb and know it not." The spirit world is indeed very near. You draw the veil that hangs be- fore your mortal eyes and you be- hold the world of which you have been aware from early childhood- God's messengers walking on earth conversing with men-depicted in glowing colors as your guardian on some artist's canvass or heard in the echo of a prayer "Dear angel ever at my side." God needs not the services of any of His angels nor of any men, but such is a part of the divine plan- angels and men are His instru- ments, His messengers. No visions from a midnight sky need convince us of the reality of the angelic world for our faith makes them more real than our school companions if only we per- mit .their reality and nearness to inspire us. Let the thought of Israel's wrest- ling with angels make us strong, fighting members of a militant Churchg the voice of St. Michael "Quia tu es Deus" defend the Church in word against "the at- tacks of the wicked"g the scene of Judas Maccabeus give courage and strength in the hour of trialg and the prayer after Mass be a renewal or . continuation of the thought which your annual suggests "De- fend us in battle, be our safeguard against the wiles and wickedness of the devil . . . O God rebuke him." From this moment We are all ranged under the banner of the angels-"Pro Deo."

We will remember it chiefly because of those with whom we have associated. We have made new friendsg we have strengthened the bonds of understanding with the old. And among the dearest of our comrades we include -the faculty. . It would be more fitting were we to offer each member of the faculty an individual tribute of our gratitude. Only in such a mannei could we do justice to the spirit in which they have offered us their services They have shown sympathy in our depression, patience at our blunders and joy in our achievements. These priests and Sister of God are truly our comrades. But since we cannot honor them as individuals, We honor them as one, and this is also fitting, for after all, the ultimate end of each is the same. And so, we say it in all reverence and respect-a tribute from the students to a splendid faculty. Page 20 E AMBROSE Friends of Youth Determined to realize their policy of building a "bigger and better Aquinas," the members of the Aquinas Guild have worked tirelessly in behalf of the school. Competent officers were elected at the first meeting in the persons of President Mrs. Amelia Noelke, Vice-president Mr. H. Fanning, Secretary Mrs. Edward George, and Treasurer Mr. Joseph Zeimentz. The Rev. John B. Pinion, religion teacher and director of the Aquinas band, is the moderator. Through their meetings and outside iniiuence, the Aquinas Guild has achieved a better understanding between students, parents, and faculty. A distinguished speaker at one of the meetings was the Rev. W. F. Bowdern, S. J., president of Campiony Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, who spoke on "Why Catholic Education." The Guild was also responsible for the selection of the new style in girls' uniforms and for successfully sponsoring the School Spring Festival. REV. J. PRITZL ROBERT HACKNER, SR. JOHN KEVIN WEN ZEL DVORAK Again this year the Aquinas Booster Club worked efficiently and advantageously for the athletes of Aquinas. The organization is com- posed of parents and friends interested in the athletic progess of the school. New basketball suits as well as other equip- ment were bought for the team. The club Page 21 REV. J. PINION JOSEPH ZEIMENTZ MRS. E. GEORGE MRS. A. NOELKE sponsored a banquet in Spring for the partici- pants in all sports. Oiiiicers of the organization are Wenzel Dvorak, president, Hugh Fanning, vice-presi- dentg John Kevin, secretary, and Robert Hack- ner, treasurer. The Rev. John Pritzl is faculty manager. an slllle King Commands in the Celestial Realm tives Scene: That celestial vastness which no man can comprehend.

Earthly knights are the students, taught by "tides et scientia" to show zeal for God's kingship, especially the seniors who now must carry His word out into the world of their future. To the Virtues possessing immovable strength belongs great enthusiasm for their Ruler. All students in a compara- tive sense must possess this same eager- ness for God's work, and as Catholic students of tomorrow acquire means of spreading Christ's doctrines. Direction of the campaign against the legions of darkness in the spiritual war- fare waged against man is the duty of the Powers who set the example of strength for our battles in daily life, "for our wrestling is not against flesh and blood: but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness .... "Therefore, take unto you the armour of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and to stand in all things perfect." 1 L+ ..

THE DY My work is done, My task is o'er, And so I come, For the crown is won Alleluia For evermore. DOE -Song of Gerontius' Guardian Angel in "The Dream of Ge1rong5ius" by J. H. Newman Page 42 397' The next to whom Are Prlncedolns and Archangels, with glad round To trend their festal ring: and last, the band Angclical, disporting in their sphere. All, as they circle in their orders, look Aloft: and downward with such sway prevail That all with mutual impluse tend to God. Paradiso In God's army, as in all armies, there must be the generals who protect and supervise those in their care. Such are the duties of the Principalities, executives for the visible world of men. Through our sodalities, we are steadily learning "to defend the Church against the at- tacks of the wicked." To the lowest choir the term "angel" is applied, for they are the messengers and guardians of God's children on earth. Through our social and scholastic clubs we learn to train ourselves to be minis- ters of God by making our power for good felt through these activities. Still another form of ministry is un- dertaken by the Archangels who are the strength of God's battles and who are sent to the members of the human race. These warriors of God are fitting stars for those who train their bodies to make them more resplendent abodes for the in- dwelling of the Holy Ghost. Thus we behold the nine choirs serving as examplars in the natural and spiritual life of every human soul living "Pro Deo." ,,4,l 'Q '32 41 Kvlfvl 'lvl' Iv? ummm WY QQ 55 Wal Q? oxiixx' ' ' How oft do they their silver bowers leave, And come to succor us that succor want! ' How oft do they with golden pinions cleave The Hitting skies, like flying pursuivant, Against foul fiends to aid us militant! They for us fight, they Watch and duly ward, And their bright squadrons round about us plant- And all for love, and nothing for reward.

Working as the Eucharistic Committee, St. James Sodal- ity labored with two main projects, the enrollment of Aquinas sodalists in the Knights and Handmaids of the Blessed Sacrament and the enthronement of the Sacred Heart in every home. REV. JOSEPH HENRY Director Mary McGaughey, the Rev. Ambrose Murphy, and Marjorie Schiffer prepare for the Eucharistic symposium held November 3, through which they wish- ed to instruct the students in the need for cooperative Catholic Action in defense of Christ the King. Oiiicers were Prefect Marjorie Schif- fer, assisted by Richard Woodruff and Mary McGaughey. Page 48 Lovers of the Poor Hoping, perhaps, to reach their heights, the sodalists from Holy Trin- ity parish undertook the project of studying the lives of great social leaders under the guidance of the Very Reverend Charles W. Gille, pastor, Betty Zernecke, and Phyllis Hammes. Thanksgiving found the Sodalists helping the poor and needy through an extensive basket campaign. Social Service was furthered through the students by the combined efforts of Rose Ellen Houlihan, Phyllis Hammes, and prefect Betty Zernecke. Page 49 As a iitting' climax to their charit- able endeavors, the Social Service re- peated the successful pie sale of last year. They were able to present a check to a needy organization and to place subscriptions to the Register and the Catholic Girl magazine in various institutions in La Crosse and Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.

Members eagerly exhibit the pam- phlet rack that they so ably encour- aged students to patronize during re- treat week. Catholic Action, the battle cry of Catholicity, has been furthered by the Catholic Truth committee of St. Mary's led by Ellen McGa1-ty, Robert Brieske, prefect Robert Cassidy, Rob- ert Padesky, and Patricia Boschert.

An at- tempt was made to have every student wearing one of Our Lady's medals and to have a living rosary throughout the month. Alice Mae Zeimentz, the Reverend John Pitz, pastoi and du ectoi, and Robert Wecker. One of the posters displayed to promote de- votion to Our Lady is admired by the ollicers. On the three days preceding the Immacu- late Conception, a triduum for sodalists was held and the student body attended Mass and Communion each day in the gym. Another triduum was sponsored preceding the Annun- ciation. A new project, Achievement Day, and an old, Mother Mary's May Day, were both success- fully engineered by prefect Alice Mae Zeimentz and secretary Adele Neururer.

The Marian Congress of the diocesan sodalities became once 'glut more the great convention of the Aquinas year. Q N J Jostling, laughing crowds filled the school-visiting the Co-op for N souvenirs, drinking Coca-Cola, and excitedly renewing acquaintances with l old friends. 1 5 The big man who seemed to be rather rushed all day was the famous Sodality leader, the Rev. Daniel A. Lord, S. J., who had again provided his overwhelming personality as a medium of enlightenment and enter- tainment. The general theme of the Congress was "Our Catholic Culture Must Be Maintained" and on this subject Father Lord based his lecture and 5 discussion. '1 Interesting topics such as Four-H and Scouting organization, Drama, 'AL Recreation, Christian Doctrine, Catholic Evidence, Catholic Literature " ' and Athletics were discussed at the sectional meetings. Everyone went home satisfied and inspired-eagerly laying plans for next year's meeting. Buses played an important part in bringing sodalists to the Marian Congress.

Fulfilling its function as a marching, maneuvering, and concert organization, it has represented Aquinas with credit in every patriotic, civic, and club parade, winning several prizes. Besides furnishing pep music for basketball games, the band also marched for every home football game, appearing at the half in field maneuvers and letter formations. Events like the Holy Name Rally, the Marian Congress, and the CYO Basketball Tournament offered further occasions for the band to perform. While many of the members are still young and inexperienced, the band has made notable progress musically under the direction of the Rev. John B. Pinion. At the spring band tournament held in the city, the band played "The Junior," a march by Panellag Hlntermezzo from L'Arlesienne Suite No. Z," by Bizetg and "Old Vienna," an overture by King. The part played by the band in making La Crosse music-conscious, and in bringing Aquinas before the public is not a small one.

How They Do It Materials used are designed to build tech- nical equipment and musicianship in the organi- zation as a whole, and to serve as a factor in the cultural life of the student body. The orchestra also is a very successful vehicle for the formation of smaller instru- mental ensembles, trios, and quartettes. There are a boys' double quartette of violins, two string quartettes, a violin-viola ensemble, and a cello ensemble. f WHEN THEY DO IT Parish Loyalty Day, December 3 March Noble-Bach Lullaby-Nolck-A cello solo by Ruth Becker Meditation from Thais-Mase senet-Flute solo by Bernard Birnbaum Noel Service, December 16 Christmas Fantasy-Grossman Christmas Music-Grieg Christmas Carols for assembly singing St. Thomas Aquinas Assembly, March '7 Ave Maria-Mascagni Marche Pontificale-Gounod Emmet Lavery Lecture, March 7 Polka from "Battered Bride"- Smetana Page 62 Minuet-Karganoff Masterful Monk, March 29, 30 Water Music-Handel Valse Triste-Sibelius Spanish Serenade-Friml A Opera-"Bartered Bride"-May 5 Graduation, June 4 Processional-Marche Noble- Bach Procession of the Sardar by Ippo- litanov-Ivanov Friends Through odern Languages To become better acquainted with the manners and cus- toms of the people of Germany and France is the main pur- pose of the modern language clubs.

The 1938 track s e a s on found the Aquinas thin clads winning one and los- ing two. A decathlon the new all-school Olympics opened the cinder season. Jim Hackner won first place with 52 points. In the class meet the Juniors proved their superiority by piling up 78 points while the Seniors and Sophomores fol- lowed with 51 and 49 points respectively. The Frosh gained six points. Wisconsin Rapids offered the first com- petition and the Gold Clads traveled north only to be defeated 6815 to 385. Jim Hackner led the tracksters with three firsts and a third in the pole vault. At Hixon field Aquinas defeated Central for the first time in the school's relations with a score of 5915 to 48V3. The Blue and Gold amassed seven firsts and a con- siderable number of seconds and thirds. The Blue and Gold tracksters invaded Campion May 30, but were repulsed by the Red Knights 66 to 44. Three firsts were gained by the La Crosse boys. A squad of men travelled to South Bend to enter the national meet but failed to place. During the season the all-city broad- jump mark was broken by Jim Hackner's leap of 21 feet 9-M, inches. Two all school records were set when John Quinn pole vaulted 10 feet and Pete Husmann sailed the discus 115 feet. Track Baseball Inaugurating baseball as a major sport the Aquinas nine had a highly successful season, winning six out of seven ecounters and tying Logan for the city champion- ship. On April 21, Aquinas travelled to Ona- laska and defeated their hosts 4-1. Git- tens pitched for Aquinas. Aquinas topped Logan in its first intra- city game 4-3, April 29. A three run barrage in the first inning put the Mori- arty-men in the lead which they main- tained throughout. Annexing their third straight victory, the Aquinites edged out the invading Galesville nine in a tough battle 2-1. Bana- sik scored the winning run in the last of the fifth on Roraff's line drive. In a slugfest Aquinas outhit Onalaska to win 8-5, May 9 at Copeland Park. The Onalaskans scored in the second inning but Banasik's triple with two men on the sacks sent the Moriarty-men into the lead to assure victory. The Golden Avalanche lived up to its title May 25 when it triumphed over Cen- tral High 17-0 at Athletic Park. Ed Git- tens, Aquinas hurler, allowed the Red Raiders three scattered hits. The Ava- lanche blasted the combined offerings of four Central pitchers for 15 hits. For the second time in a week Aquinas shut out its Cass Street rivals, this time with a score of 5-0.

The Avalanche struck twice in the third quarter when a 45-yard run by Al Lowell and a pass from Adrian Yeager to Captain Ed Banasik netted the final two touchdowns. All attempts for points after touchdowns were blocked. ' ,git FOCTB LL sfo . The reserves played the entire fourth quar- ter. Outstanding in the game was the block- ing fif the backfield and the defensive work of the ine. October 1-Columbia-Here-A fumble by the Columbia Gubs on their own 12-yard line gave Aquinas a close 6-0 victory over the boys from Dubuque. . Although Yeager's long punts had kept the Gubs on the defensive from the start, the Mori- arty aggregation did not get its scoring oppor- tunity until the second quarter. The Avalanche's chance came when a lateral, fumbled by Merlin Marty, Dubuque fullback, was recovered by Dick Padesky on the ene- my's 12-yard line. On the next play, Yeager faded back and sent a pass sizzling towards the end zone where Ed Banasik picked it out of the air for the only score of the game, Pete Husmann's try for point after touchdown by placement went wide. The only competition ofered was that of Billy Linn, Columbia quarterback, whose pass- ing in the final quarter almost proved fatal to the home team. Yeager Gets Otf a Long Punt From Mid-Field in the Logan Game Q 0 -6Q4 October 8 - Campion - There - A smooth functioning pass attack in the third quarter gave Aquinas its first victory over Campion Academy in five years of gridiron competition. The scoring drive began when Ed Banasik recovered a Campion fumble on his own 44-yard line. In seven plays, which featured plunges by Yeager and Groth and passes by the Yeager- to-Banasik combination, the ball was moved up to the six-yard line. From that point Yeager flipped a pass into the waiting arms of Jims Roraif in the end zone. Pete Husmann booted the ball squarely through the uprights to give the La Crosse aggregation its third win of the season, 7-0. October 16-Edgewood-Here-Playing the breaks, Aquinas remained undefeated by top- ping a hard-fighting Edgewood team, 14-7. The Golden Clads acquired their first touch- down late in the second quarter when Bill Dvorak, husky guard, blocked an Edgewood punt on the 22-yard line which was recovered by Fritz Funk behind the opponents' goal line. 'FQ 531- f A 4:54 69,0 'Z sw John Shuda obtained the second touchdown for Aquinas in the third quarter when he inter- cepted a pass by Joe Ponty and raced 68 yards to the goal line. A pass, Ponty to Stack, in the closing min- utes of the game succeeded in marring Aquinas' unscored upon record. Pedracine's conversion terminated the scoring. Bob Padesky, center, and Bill Dvorak, right guard, were outstanding in the line while Shuda, Yeager, and Roraff did the best work in the backfield.

Lowell Jack Cummings Frederick Funk Lawrence Groth Roy Young Earl Kaufman ' October 29-Central-Here-Two fumbles and an intercepted pass paved the way for Aquinas' first defeat of the season to the tune of 19-0. Howe set up the first touchdown when he interecepted Yeager's pass on the 33-yard line. Two plays later he snatched a short aerial from Reichgelt and went over the goal line. Sophomore, Johnny Anderson, scored the other two touchdowns on baffiing reverses around the ends. Bob Reichgelt succeeded in making one of the three conversions. The Golden Avalanche made its biggest scoring bid in the fourth quarter when the ball was pushed to the seven and one-half yard stripe. The Red and Black defense tightened up, however, and Aquinas lost its chance to break the scoreless jinx. Yeager and Shuda played their usual good games while Banasik PIGSKIN and Fritz Funk, ends, except for Anderson's reverses, managed to keep the Central play well to the inside. November 6-Cotter--Here-Adrian Yea- ger personally conducted Aquinas back into the win column as he made 12 points of the 13-0 final score. A see-saw game was played until the third quarter when a Yeager-to-Banasik pass com- bination brought the ball from the 49 to the 14-yard line. Yeager then took the ball on the next two plays and with good blocking scored the first touchdown. Husmann's place-kick was good. A . The stands were again brought to their feet as the quick-footed halfback received a punt on his own 31-yard line and zig-zagged his Way through the high scoring Cotter team, 69 yards to his second touchdown. Page 80 Bernard Sciborski November 11-Logan - There - Trouncing Logan in everything but the final score, Aquinas finished off its season with a moral victory over their north side foes. The final score was 19-18. Aquinas started the scoring when Yeager sprinted 35 yards for a touchdown early in the first quarter. The Avalanche scored against Logan for the first time in five years and by doing so broke the so-called scoreless jinx that has been haunt- ing the Blue and Gold in the intra-city competi- tion.

Muscle-Builders BOXING Boxing prospects loomed brighter this year than they have since the mitt game entered the inter-scholastic sphere one year ago. Eleven veterans, six of whom saw action in the 1939 se-ason's opener against Caledonia's Loretto High, played important parts in Coach Mori- arty's boxing showsq Six mitt-slingers demonstrated here March 23 that Aquinas had a hard punching, well con- ditioned squad. Seventeen bouts, 11 of which were elimination matches, one T.K.0., one K.O., and one draw climaxed the card. The Golden Avalanche boxers and Loretto High fought to a 4-4 draw in the Caledonia Municipal fieldhouse, March 31. Dick Stou- venal, Aquinas, won a hard earned verdict over Lefty Konig, Loretto, in the 130 pound battle. Aquinas' other three winners were John Weber, Adrian Yeager, and Bob Amundson. The Ava- lanche losers included Gene Dwyer, Ray Wuensch, Bernard Carroll, and John Coughlin, in the 92, 115, 145, and 120 pound divisions re- spectively. The meet wrote finis to the Golden Clads mitt season with a grand total of nine points to their opponents five. BOWLING The Aquinas bowlers had a home and home series with the Campion Keglers for their 1939 season. Losing both matches it could hardly be called successful season though it began another sport in the varied Aquinas athletic cur- riculum. Campion won the first engagement 2354 to 2006, and the second, on their own alleys, 2403 to 2072. Desmond led the Golden Pinsters with 435 and 472 in both matches. The team was composed of John Desmond, William Dwyer, Francis Muhlenkamp, Robert Lowell and James W ais. Jack Dwyer, Bernard Carroll, Adrian Yeager, Jack Coughlin, and John Weber took their bouts in the 92, 150, 145, 120, and 145 pound classes, respectively. Ray Wuensch, the only Aquinas loser, dropped a close decision in the 115 pound class. Top row-Bill Dwyer and Robert Lowell. Kneeling-John Desmond and Francis Muehlenkamp. James Weis fnot picturedl.
