Bless the Lord, all ye His angels:
You that are mighty in strength,
And execute His word,
Hearkening to the voice of His orders.
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
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
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,
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.
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.

God is infinitely good, and from Him come all good things. 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.

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.
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.
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
Upon the thickly-peopled earth,
In ever ceaseless flow,
Full thrice ten thousand dealthless beings
Pass lightly to and fro.
Keepers, unseen, of mortal men, -
In airy vesture dight,
Their good and evil deeds they scan
Stern champions of the right.

A A Message to the Seniors
As the school year draws to a close and you are about to complete
your studies in Aquinas, receiving your diplomas of graduation and saying
farewell to your teachers and class-mates, I naturally feel not merely an
interest in you but a deep concern about you, I am wondering how you
will get along in years to come, what success life has in store for you and
what influence for good you will exercise upon those around you.
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.

Bishop of La Crosse.

ALEDICTORY and commencement afford teacher and
pupil an opportunity for silent and deep thoughtg thoughts
which often lie "too deep for tears." 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
,PW ' ,B T
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
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
Let the thought of Israel's wrest-

Another year at Aquinas is being Wafted into the annals of the past
For some of us it is a final partingg others will soon returng but all of us
retain unrnisted memories of a Well-spent year.
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
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.
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.

Undercurrent: An exquisite faint strain of lovely melody.

Lo, exault before My Presence, heaven illumining.
Seraphim: Gloria in excelsis Deo! Glory to God on high!
Victoria-victory to God be our only cry!
Creator: Adore, ye joyful Cherubim, with child's unsurpassed praise,
Soar in heaven's Kindergarten: learn my heavenly ways.
Cherubim: Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus! Holy, holy, holy, Lord God!

These gifts to Thee we offer-our mind, our soul, our will.
Creator: Serve, ye gentle Principalities, heaven's princely guests,

Knights in shining armor are the Domi-
nations, whose chief virtue is zeal for the
maintenance of the King's authority.
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

My work is done,
My task is o'er,
And so I come,
For the crown is won
-Song of Gerontius' Guardian Angel
in "The Dream of Ge1rong5ius" by J. H. Newman
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.
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."
Kvlfvl 'lvl' Iv?
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.
O, why should heavenly God to men have such regard?

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.
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

DOWN THE STREET
The Aquinas Band has definitely arrived. 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.

Because it provides a means of self-expres-
sion, because many professions of today take
for granted a familiarity with musical litera-
ture, and because of cultural elements it con-
tains, music has become popular with Aquinas
students. Chorus is a popular medium of music
education to students who do not study with
an instrumental performance in view.

Since America as a nation is outstanding
for the size and quality of its symphony orches-
tras, it is inevitable that this characteristic
of our national musical taste should show itself
in the cultural life of the Aquinas students.
What They Do
The Aquinas Orchestra has a personnel
of approximately fifty members providing
incidental music for assembly programs spon-
sored by other departmentsg accompanying
assembly singingg enriching such events as are
scheduled by the music department in generalg

the Opera "Bartered Bride," graduation exer-
cises, incidental music for plays, and an occa-
sional request program.
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.

again sold for ten cents each, and carry 5211
interest. The stock this year includes school
supplies and a large variety of religious articles.

In the early minutes of the game, Rich Wood-
ruff scampered around end and with effective
blocking crossed the line for the first touch-
down of the season. 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. '
The reserves played the entire fourth quar-
ter. Outstanding in the game was the block-
ing fif the backfield and the defensive work of
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.

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
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.
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.

and an intercepted pass paved the way for
Aquinas' first defeat of the season to the tune
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
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
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

Logan in everything but the final score, Aquinas

their north side foes. The final score was 19-18.
Aquinas started the scoring when Yeager

the first quarter.

first time in five years and by doing so broke

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.
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-
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.
