I i For five years the Right Reverend Monsi- gnor George A. Hommes served thee students of Aquinas as counselor and instructor. Although his duties as Chancellor of the Diocese of La Crosse no longer permit him to serve us in those capacities, they do enable him to further the spiritual and material interests, not only of Aquinas, but also of the other schools of the dio- cese. For this reason we deem it a privilege to ded- icate the '50 TRUMPET to the Right Reverend Msgr. George A. Hammes. HIS EXCELLENCY, THE MOST REVEREND JOHN P. TREACY, S.T.D. Bishop of La Crosse The Most Reverend John Patrick Treacy, S.T.D., SON Of John Und Anne MUFQOFEY TVGGCY, WGS lD0I'f1 Akron, Ohio, and St. Luke's, Cleveland, Ohio, Bishop Uuly 23, 1891, in Marlboro, Massachusetts. His Excellency attended the preparatory school of Holy Cross College, Worcester, Massachusetts, and was graduated from the Catholic University, 1912. After completing his seminary course at St. ' John's, Boston, he was ordained to the priesthood After serving as assistant pastor in St, Mory's, Treacy was named Diocesan Director ot the Propa- gation of the Faith and Assistant Chancellor of the Diogtase of Cleveland, a position he held for fourteen ars. He was consecrated Coodjutor Bishop of La Crosse, by the Most Reverend John Patrl' arrelly, Cl Ocwbef 2, 1945, and appointed Ordinary of the land, Ohio, December , 1918. f., l?lh uly 23, 1946. ig- 1 p.

This personal excellence - spiritual, intellectual, so- cial, and physical--is thehobjective of Catholic education. ln the attainment of this objective, Mary stands as your perfect model and ideal. Whether you engage in business, social, religious, or do- mestic life, if you "go her way," your living will approach that excellence which your Catholic edu- cation aimed to achieve. In this way you may hope to meet the challenge the world presents and ac- complish your part in the betterment of all man- kind. o"NN e 1 2 5 Q O 5 5 -I-O O-IO' CQ-Ou.

THE AQUINAS GUILD is the oldest auxiliary ot Aquinas. lt is the Parent-Teacher organiza- tion with all the objectives and goals which such an organization implies. PARISH REPRESENTATIVES constitute the executive committee of the Guild. To achieve the purposes of the Guild more adequately, each parish sending a large number of students to Aquinas is represented by two lay persons. THE AQUINAS BOOSTER CLUB has as its major project the support of athletics in the school. lts loyalty and spirit has been a great help in many other school movements.

Four years later that beginning group emerged from the school as graduates. It was the dawn of a new day. To the late Most Reverend Alexander James MCC-avick it was a dream come true. He had conceived the early hope that La Crosse area Catholics might reasonably have, and support a school founded on their faith. His hope of an educational institution for young Catholics had materialized as Aquinas High School. Today ninety per cent of all La Crosse area Catholic pupils of high school age attend Aquinas-strong testimonial of the dream come true. The student body now numbers 912, and Aquinas has grown to become the fourth largest Catholic high school in Wisconsin. Twelve :. Qt: At Aquinas we have endeavored to master the most important lesson of life-like Mary, to follow the light of truth that never sets. We have learned her confidence from daily Mass and Holy Communion, the rosary before her image at noon, the hurriedly whispered prayer before semester examinations. Mary, teach us to GO YOUR WAY . A . to live the truths taught us at Aquinas . . . to center our lives in your Son . . . to be strong influences in society . . . to become the "salt of the earth." f 125 a s 14 RNA going cl-fam Clflfay SCHOLASTICALLY SENIGRS Abicht, Ronald Abnet, Gregory Abraham, Carol Alexander, John Allen, Joan Allen, Russell Amundson, Richard Bakalars, Joseph Bantle, Jean Becker, Donald Sister M.

Forty-seven UGH Tl Everything from Shakespeare to juggling, concert pianists to rope tricks, and a husband and wife singing team to an RCA Victor artist was featured on the Aquinas stage this year in a series of cultural and entertaining assemblies. The first of the professional programs was a piano concert of classical music given by Mrs. Ann Abeln of Chicago in October. The same month was rounded out with the appearance of Miss Marie Houston, inter- nationally known soprano, radio, and RCA Victor artist who brought with her colorful costumes of Mexico and South America. Pictured with her at the bottom right are seniors Rosemary Gilles, Rita Knapmiller, and Delores Gerke who served as models. ln the next few months Colonel Larson of La Crosse featured his rope tricks and amateur photography. Carl Olson provided a sparkling assembly with his quick iug- gling and quicker wit. The Catholic University Players version of "Much Ado About Nothing" gave most Aquinas students their first taste of professional Shakespeare. The "Singing Kappels," husband and wife operatic singing duo, and their accompanist, Miss Virginia Fons, lower left, and Miss Mary Barry, marimba specialist, not pictured, completed this year's assemblies.

Q Our spiritual activities at Aquinas have shown us the way to follow Mary long after our school days are ended. We have found a way of absolute security illuminated by her who is called the Morning Star. Mary has shown us a way of life that is filled with happiness and peaceg a way of hope that will lead to the open portals of an eternal dawn. f J my di fl x f if + Nite 'f l 06129 Oyez rlflfay PIRITU LLY s X X f Senior Mass servers shown in the top picture are James Kelly, Joseph Bakalars, Ronald Abicht, Robert Hafner, and Richard Merfeld.

Sister M. Gervmu Mechanical Drawing Art Sacristan Fifty GOLDEN MASS The Mass of Ember Wednesday in Advent is traditionally known as the Golden Mass. lt has become the schooI's real Christmas Program. At the Offertory of this Mass, the entire student body in procession brings its offerings of canned foods, clothing, and personal gifts to God's altar. No one knows how the term "Golden Mass" originated, but everyone agrees that the term which reminds us of something valuable and beautiful is appropriate. It was the custom in the earlier days for the Christians to bring gifts for this Mass and offer them personally to God at the Offertory. Jerome Sweeney, senior class president, and Charles Skemp, president of the Aquinas Council of Student Affairs, led the solemn procession to the altar steps bearing the wine. The Reverend Stephen Anderl, former faculty member introduced the custom at Aquinas and was celebrant of the Solemn High Mass this year. The gifts of the 912 participating students were packed and sent to the poor at home and in various mission fields in this country. Above is a shot of the Junior Benevolent Society members who were in charge of classifying and distributing the presents. Rosemary Fransen and Loretta Coughlin are separating while Mary Kay Money and Therese Shedesky arrange the gifts in boxes. Below is a picture of the student body as it participated in the Golden Mass ceremony. The intent attitude of the students would give even a stranger an idea of the solemnity of the occasion. Fifty-one M RY, WE CROW THEE! I H' X iz A f,- J NX 4,4 V . li ' x ' . On May 7, 1949, over 900 students of Aqui- nas High School crowded St. Joseph's Cathedral to pay homage to their Mother and Queen, the Blessed Virgin Mary. The occasion for this large gathering was the annual May crowning ceremony at which time the '49 May Queen, Joan Karew, placed the wreath of flowers upon the statue of Our Blessed Mother and acclaimed her "Mary, Queen of May." At the left is the picture of the newly crowned Virgin and beneath is the picture of His Excel- lency, the Most Reverend John P. Treacy, who presided at the traditional religious event and delivered an address to the students and faculty. The entire ceremony consisted of the crowning of the Virgin, an address by the guest speaker, and Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament. Each year the senior students select a queen and court to reign over the ceremonies. Court members are Kathleen Heath, Rita Jeanne Anthony, Patricia Ryan, Jeanne Hackner, Delores Smikla, Jeanine Gschwind, Maxine Heintz, and Catherine Munster. Front row: Delores Bakalars, Betty McLain, Maureeen Hutson, Queen Joan Karew, Mary Craig, Marie Delagrave, and Rosemary Riniker. Fifty-two BE E OLE T SOCIETY Eleven years ago a small group of Aquinas girls, inspired by Dorothy Day, organized a society which has as its objec- tive, the giving of aid to underprivileged families. As a result, the Junior Benevolent Society has become one of the outstanding organizations at Aquinas. Its members strive to promote the spiritual and material welfare of the individual families assigned to them. Annual Halloween and Christmas parties, monthly visits to the families, the direction of the Golden Mass, and a tea at St. Joseph Home of the Aged are some of the activities. Pictured at the St. Joseph Home are Joan Grams and Colette Ritter lstandingi serving their guests. Father Bofen- kornp and Father Blecha are entertaining. At the upper right Therese Shedesky and Mary Kay Maney play hostesses for their young charges at the Christmas party. At lower left, secretary Loretta Flanagan and president Mary Jean Murphy confer with society sponsor, Mrs. Ambrose Murphy. Owing to the efforts of the Junior Benevolent Society, many homes had a happy Thanksgiving as evidenced by the lower left picture.

Every year at Christmas time the traditional star sheds its rays over the Christmas crib and brightens the corner of Cameron and West Avenue Streets. The rays reach farther than the confines of the manger and adorers. They touch the soul of every passerby, whether he be an Aquinite, a workingman, or a child. And they carry with them a message-the message of Christ's birth, of man's rebirth, and of the reawakening of joy and hope in the world. And, celebrating this anniversary with the rest of the world, Aquinas duplicates the original scene, complete with Virgin, Child, and shepherds. Fifty-four ...l949 The annual Winter Concert, dedicated this year to the Pil- grim Virgin, was among one of the best offered by Aquinas, in a long line of outstanding mu- sical programs. The concert featured the ll5-voice choir, the junior choir, the freshmen and sophomore girls' and boys' glee clubs, and the smaller groups, the Triple Trio and the Discords. The picture at the 'right portrays Susan Opitz as the Virgin Mother who inspired the overall theme of the con- cert. From the Aquinas stage she reigned over the candle- light procession of choristers. This pose is from the student Christmas program which con- sisted ot a series ot tableaux set to music. The story of Christ's birth was enacted by Janice Mader as Mary, Alice Engelhard as the angel, and William Servais as St. Joseph. The Christmas program of '49 was one of the most spiritually refreshing presented on the Aquinas stage and was excel- lently received by the student body. Fifty-five CATHOLICITY IN ACTIO The expert quality of sophomore Thomas Smith's or- gan music made an impression on the minds of Aquinites that remained long after they had left the auditorium. ln the top left picture Thomas is shown demonstrating his skill. The Reverend Stephen Anderl, Golden Mass celebrant, distributes Holy Communion to Colette Ritter and Nola Noel, while Shirley Mashak waits her turn. Senior Joan Allen pauses for a moment before one of the Lady of Fatima statues which were installed in every homeroom this year. The Right Reverend Monsignor George A. Hammes opened the I949 September term of school with the of- fering of High Mass. This pose of seniors on adoration day was caught shortly after school opened. Students are Richard Yost, Robert Grabinski, Charles Skemp, Don- ald Galiagher, Bette Lewinski, Lorraine Kavanaugh, Janet Fiebig, and Jean Horschak, Retreat masters, the Rever- end Albert Roemer, the Reverend Alfred Hebert, the Reverend Joseph Bach pose with His Excellency, the Most Reverend John P. Treacy, and the Reverend James Fin- ucan, secretary to His Excellency, after the Solemn High Mass which terminated the retreat. Fifty-six We have learned at Aquinas to seek Mary as a model.

A coronation ceremony with presentation of all court members, upper left photo, was the highlight of the evening. Fifty-eight ii, BEHI A major responsibility of any dramatic production rests on the stage crew, the de- signers, the make-up artists, and the general workers. Pictured, building the stairway for the operetta are Robert Sullivan, James Soller, William Gilster, Lynn Schneyer, and Giles Flanagan. At the right the wardrobe mistresses are busy with some last minute costuming. Jean l-lutzenbuehler cuts the material while Joan D THESC Phelps fits a costume on Ellen Grams, and Loretta Coughlin hems Naughty Marietta's party dress. Student director, Ruth Lund, briefs the actors as Beverly Kulas, business manager, looks on. Effective projected lighting for the dramatic production proved a well-met chal- lenge to electricians, Peter Schaettle and Clement Bott. Able make-up artists apply grease paint to members of the cast. Fifty-nine EN, s CURTAIN TIME In observance of Armistice Day, the Drama Department presented "They Also Serve," a choric dramatization in which forty voices were blended. Portraying the musty historians were Ronald Abicht and James Temp. The next production of the year was "The Romancers," a satire on romantic notions, particularly on the Romeo and Juliet angle. The comedy was prepared for the district and state one-act play contest. Pictured in a scene from this play are Betty Lewinski and Charles Skemp, the young lovers who are separated by a garden wall. Also from the cast are Jack Cagney and Gregory Ziegelmaier, the grim fathers, and Frederick Simones, the dramatic fenc- ing master. "The Romancers" was also entered in the Second Annual One-Act Play Festival held at Aquinas on February l8. The festi- val, associated with the Catholic Theater Conference, was under the direction of Sister Marie Leon. Bette Lewinski of Sixty Aquinas, Bruce Cody of Campion Academy, and Shirley Meleski of St. Joseph Academy, Stevens Point, pose with their trophies awarded for the best acting of the day. Q 5 - l l "Lute Song," the colorful and realistic ancient Chinese morality play, was the major production of the Drama Department this year. The classic, which was presented February ll and I2 at the Vocational auditorium, centers around a Chinese youth who entrusts his wife to the keeping of his revered parents while he goes to the capital to seek his fortune. A cast of 65 found the presentation of this Chinese play a genuine challenge. Adapted for acting in l404, it has since enjoyed con- tinuous favor in the Chinese theater, with a stature equal to that accorded "Hamlet" on the Western stage. Personal creative talent of the stage crew, elaborate settings, authentic costumes, and a fitting musical background combined with the superior efforts of Sister Marie Leon, director, made "Lute Song" one of the most significant productions at Aquinas. Upper photo was taken at the Imperial wedding, complete with lanterns and dancers. The second picture shows Tsai-Yong portrayed by Richard Yost, who is being taken by force to the Emperar's palace. The noble princess, Nancy Doyle, is pictured at the lower right with her maids in waiting, Janice Mader and Bette Lewinski, while egotistical Prince Neow, Robert Gilbert, bargains with the marriage broker in the person of Dolores Gerke. LUTE SO At the lower left the picture taken two weeks before the production, shows Marian Cermak, Francis Furlano, Frederick Simones, Barbara Bracken, Patrick Murphy, Nancy Doyle, and Dolores Gerke putting the finishing touches on the genie. "Lute Song" finds its greatness in the pro- found lesson it has brought home to countless audiences. The fidelity of a husband and wife and a daughter's filial piety towards her parents furnish the theme of the drama. Sixty-one Sixty-two TUNING UP Students of all music groups of Aqui- nas High School, but especially orchestra members, spent long hours of preparation for the highlight of the first semester's musical performance, the Winter Con- cert. The orchestra, at the peak of its ability, presented to music lovers in the La Crosse area a program rich in various modern and classical selections. Tuning up before curtain time is the string quartet composed of Alice Engel- hard, Shirlee Knutson, Barbara Desmond, and Lois Houlihan. Another quartet, famous in its own right is the clarinet quartet. Members are Anthony Solberg, Robert Virnig, Barbara Bennett, and James Havlicek. The lower pictures are cross sections of the orchestra snapped during the performance. The Winter Concert has two main pur- poses: to give the music groups an oppor- tunity to show their ability, and to give La Crosse music lovers an enjoyable evening.

"Naughty Marietta," an opera set in romantic New Orleans, is a gay-spirited romance, complete with pirates, the inevitable triangle, laughter, and gaiety. Below, upper left photo, is Bette Lewinski as Marietta, in one of her naughty moments, using her charms on unresponsive Captain Richard Warrington, Herbert Virnig. ln the opposite picture are shown flower girl, Suzanne Opitz, and French maid, Mary Kay Maney, trying to attract a local gentleman, Kenneth Riepel, at the flower stand. ln the center photo, beautiful Adah, Barbara Bracken, attempts to win and hold the affections of her master Etienne, Charles Skemp. Raymond Gantenbein, David Brieske, and John Bedessem give their attention to demanding Lizette, Noel VanBrunt, in the lower left picture. Marietta, Bette Lewinski, lower right, dressed in her wedding dress, listens to Captain Dick sing, "Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life," and realizes that he loves her. Marietta, who is ever haunted by an unfinished dream melody, has been told that only he shall claim her heart who will have the power to sing the answer to her song. She has repeatedly asked Captain Dick at least to try, but he is consistently indifferent. Finally, he finishes her melody, whereupon she returns his love and all ends happily. Sixty-six Boom, Ayel' - - - Naughty Marietta Dancers, flower girls, and casquette girls sit around the fountain in the garden making plans for the ball. As they happily discuss the gala affair, they do not anticipate the coming events of an auction, a capture, and a wedding. Pictured there are Therese Potaracke, French dancer, Rita Knothe, Spanish dancer, Rita Knap- miller, casquette girl, and Nancy Larson, flower girl. Opposite them, Sir Harry Blake, Richard Yost, Annette, Marilyn Garrity, Felice, Ruth Lund, and Fan- chon, Mary Volz, watch closely as Rudolpho, Gregory Ziegelmaier, "pulla de marionettaf' However, in his profession, Rudolpho finds that his troubles have begun when he innocently consented to accept Marietta, disguised as his missing son. Comedian Silas, Theodore Lapitz, disguises himself as a pirate to frighten all the pretty girls. ln the center picture he threatens Lizette, Dolores Gerke, and steals the gold from her casquette. Abounding comedy is furnished by Silas, one of Captain Dick's misfit trappers and his co-partner, Lizette. At the lower right, Captain Dick escorts lovely Marietta, Janice Mader, into the ballroom. Marietta is a fiery little ltalian, disguised as a casquette girl who ran away from home to join the girls of marriage- able age who were sent by the King of France to the French settlement in New Orleans. Here Marietta meets Captain Richard Warrington, Herbert Virnig, who befriends her. After meeting with many rebuffs and disappointments, she finally falls in love with him. The wedding festivities include dances. French dancers are shown in the picture at the lower right. Back row: Janet Miller, Kay Kevin, Julie Galvin, and Rita Kateley.

Seventy Sister M. Juliana Choir Applied Music Orchestra MUSIC THE IR From the Aquinas Music Department this year emerged three notable groups, each not which had something a little different from the other, and each of which was excellent in its field. Pictured at the top are the tamed Discords, a quartet with music sung in barbershop style. Catching a sweet note are Theodore Lopitz, Herbert Virnig, Raymond Gantenbein, and David Brieske. SBVEHTY-One The second group is the Boys' Double Quartet, which is composed of the Discords and four additional voices. This group made its debut at the Win- ter Concert. Left to right are Theo- dore Lopitz, Greg- ory Ziegelmaier, Herbert Vi r n i g, Raymond Ganten- bein, Richard Yost, Charles S k e m p, David Brieske, and Jack Kelly. Direct- ed by Sister Vivian, this group practices during homeroom period. The third group, the feminine coun- terpart of the Dis- cords, is known as the Triple Trio. T h i s homeroom practicing group which made its de- but in the Winter Concert, is com- posed of outstand- ing upperclass vo- calists. Trio mem- bers from the top step are Therese Potaracke, Bette Lewinski, Lucille Breidel, L u c i I I e Reinhard, Mary Volz, Janice Ma- der, Loretta Flan- agan, Barbara Ben- nett, Suzanne Op- itz, and Dolores Gerke. Under the direction of Sister Juliana, the Triple Trio flourished and entertained numer- ous clubs and con- ventions. HOMECCMI FE TIVITIE Amid crowds of cheering spectators, Aquinas celebra- ted its fourth annual Homecoming on September 30, cli- maxing the game with a supper and a dance. Queen of this year's festivities was Monna Pederson, choice of the student body, who in turn chose Charles Skemp as her King. Miss Kathleen Nekola, '48 Queen, crowned Monna at the halftime ceremonies at Memorial Field. The beautiful ceremony was highlighted by the arch, formed of court members, singing "Queen of the Rosary" to the music of the Aquinas Band. Pictured in the autumn setting are the Queen, court members, and their escorts. The annual "Queen's Supper" followed the game. The queen and her attendants, their parents, escorts, and the Aquinas and Edgewood football teams were guests. At the left, King Charles serves the Queen, and court members Phyllis Hallo and Charles Udulutch await their turn. At the lower right, Mike Skemp grins as he passes the photographer. Following him are Coach and Mrs. Michuta, while hostesses look on. Aquinas alumni and students continued the celebra- tion with a dance in the gymnasium which was gaily decorated in an autumn scheme. Baskets of leaves and autumn flowers highlighted the decoration of the gym. Seventy-two DEB TE H RESOLVED . .. I THAT THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES SHOULD BE ELECTED BY THE DIRECT VOTE OF THE PEOPLE This year's debate squads, both junior and senior divisions, literally brought home the laurels. The most notable event of this season for the juniors was the Catholic State tournament held at Marquette University High School. The Aquinas freshmen team composed of David Murphy, William McKillip, Roy Pearse, and Howard Erickson brought home the trophy, not only for the most wins, but also for the best freshman team entered in the meet. The record of the senior division debaters is also something to emulate. Their scoring for the season was twenty wins to fourteen losses, a creditable showing. ln the upper left picture Alice Engelhard upholds her side of the question while William Skemp, Anne Kehoe, Richard Collins, and Audrey Hardiman listen attentively and take notes. At the upper right are pictured Sister Theodata's freshman debaters, Barbara Forschler, Steven Maxwell, Rudolph Lusk, Eugene Bakalars, and Roy Pearse. Seated: David Murphy, Patricia Riley, Carol Theisen, William McKillip, and Howard Erickson. Senior debater James Kelly tries to convince Janice Mader, Gerald Downey, John Bedessem, John Lyons, and Jerome Sweeney of the practicality of his argu- ment. The occasion for the picture at the lower right was the visit of Dr. Hugo Hellman, Ph.D., Head of the Speech Department at Marquette Uni- versity. The debate specialist discussed this year's question with Richard Collins, William Skemp, Janice Mader, and Gerald Downey. Looking on are James Kelly, John Lyons, Jerome Sweeney, and John Bedessem.

Diligence is the staff's watchword as they struggle to meet deadlines staring them in the face. The seniors wearied by perpetual pencil pushing, received a respite about mid-term when the juniors assumed the responsibility with Charles Buelow and Gerald Downey as Co-editors. The policy of THE AQUINAS NEWS is twofold: To inform the students of school activities and to inculcate Catholic living in the members of the student body. Honor came to the publications department when an announcement was made by Dean J. L. O'Sullivan of the College of Journalism, Marquette University, that THE AQUINAS NEWS was rated as one of the ten leading Catholic high school newspapers in the country for '49-'5O.

As every spoke in a wheel gives it added stability, so every member of the staff has given his support in the production of the book. Although challenged with many difficulties, edi- tors met the deadlines satisfactorily. Actual work on THE TRUMPET commenced in October and continued until May l. Long hours of labor went into producing this log of events of the school year. lt is the sincere wish of the staff that in future years, when recalling days gone by, this book English will provide a pleasant and accurate account of J V the four years spent at Aquinas High School.

FOOTBALL SEASON The Aquinas Blugolds began the long grind to an undefeated, untied season, meeting a big highly-rated St. Augustine team from Austin, Minnesota. Displaying a vicious ground at- tack and a stalwart defense, the Blue and Gold walked off the field the victors by o 31-0 count. Following another week of rugged practice, Coach Michuta's gridders tangled with Mc- Donell of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Here again the 'Golds unleashed a strong attack to run over the opposition, l9-0. Logan provided the next test for this high- riding Aquinas machine.

Knowing fully the ne- cessity of having men of high calibre to bring any team the city championship I have the utmost admiration for the members of this year's Aquinas team.

The Blugolds spoiled St. Pat's homecoming game with an impressive 52-12 verdict over the outclassed lrish squad at Eau Claire, Wis- consin, to gain their seventh straight decision. A keyed-up Campion Academy eleven were ready for the invading Blugolds and held them to a 6-6 halt-time count. In the second half the Blugolds pushed over two touchdowns to win 18-6. The next opposition for the winning team was an undefeated squad from Loras Acad- emy, Dubuque, Iowa. This was to be the game ot the year for both schools, as each wanted that much desired perfect season. Loras displayed an outstanding running at- tack and moved to a 19-6 edge in the closing moments ot the contest. But Aquinas urged by an unseen spark scored two touchdowns in the last two minutes to squeeze out that one final contest, giving Aquinas Blugolds an un- blemished record.

This boy filled the holes in the line, playing his best ball when the chips were down. 3. Jim Temp-6' 3", 200 lbs., end. "Dumbo," as his size implies, 'was the biggest boy in the line-up. The opponents found him rugged and ready whenever they swept his end. 4. Chuck Skemp--5' 8", 155 lbs., right halfback. Chuck, although the smallest backfield man, displayed brilliance in the running department, eating up yardage on every try. 5 Tom.Sinninger-5' 8", 170 lbs., guard. This rugged guard displayed unusual ability at throwing the opposition for huge losses. 6 Dick Pouzar -- 5' 8", 155 lbs., tackle. A top performer at all times, Whitey overcame the toughest opponents with his rugged block- ing and line play. 7 Bill Servais-5'10", 185 lbs., tackle. A strong line man, Bill hit his peak in mid- season, turning the tide in the Campion game by recovering an important fumble. 8 Dave McPeak- 5' 11", 180 lbs., tackle, Many times the opposition was stopped cold by this rugged tackle, who would not stay down. 9 Tom Bruha-5' 9", 150 lbs., halfback. This speedy back used deception in picking his way through the line. Once in the open, he was a hard man to stop. 10. Joe Bakalars-5'10", 175 lbs., tackle. Fast and tough, Joe liked contact work. He was a demon on defense and a crack downfield blocker. 11. Al Freybier-5'9", 170 lbs., tackle. He was one of the most alert defensive linemen on the team, stopping deception plays with unusual ability. 12. Jim Skaff-5'9", 170 lbs., halfback. Whitey not only kicked the crucial extra points for Aquinas, but also was a main cog on both defense and offense. 13. James Kelly-5'9", 165 lbs., quarterback. Jim may have passed like a quarterback, but to see him run one would think he were a halfback. 14. Bill Shuda-5'10", 180 lbs., fullback. Bill charged the line with vicious thrusts, burst- ing through for long gains. 15. Mike Skemp-5'10", 175 lbs., fullback. He was a hard runner, possessing both drive and speed. This rugged fullback had uncanny accuracy in his passing. 16. Bob Gilbert--6', 170 lbs., end. No doubt Bob was the most capable pass re- ceiver on the team. He played brilliant offense and defense. 17. Duke Coughlin -- 5' 9", 145 lbs., guard. ' "Dynamite Duke," "small but mighty," describes this powerful guard, who played exceptional ball against men twice his size. Eighty-three ! !TO OUR tured th cov ed All-State t lic itl The Aq sketba for the d successive , to beco the f' ive-time winner the cr The Blu lds displaying a well- c team invaded the VanDylce arena e y favorites. Fan followers were impressed wit e Aquinas quintet's brilliant play and smoo offensive. The scoring was evenly balanced, and the team worked as a unit, with each player a star. T TE HAMPS The Blugolds proceeded to roll over their rivals by generous scores. Their first victim was St. Catherine's of Racine, which went down to defeat before the scoring power of the Blue and Gold, 73-49, believed to be a new tournament record. Pius Xl High School of Milwaukee was the next victim which was routed to the tune of 67-29. This victory gave the Blugolds a crack at the title. Upper row: Coach John Michuto, Bill Skemp, Jim Temp, Myron Peterson, and Bob Gilbert. Second row: The Reverend Charles Blecha, director: Dave McPeak, John Stellick, Doug Oldenburg, and Mike Skemp. First row: Dave Weldy, Tom Bruhu, Warren Delagrove, and Jim Skoff. Eighty-four Tom Bruha, 5"l0", guard, helped the Blugolds in many a tight spot with his deadly shooting. Bill Skemp, 6' 2", forward, led the team repeatedly during the year with his expert side shot. Jim Skaff, 5' l'l", guard, with his floor play and top-notch ball-handling, provided Coach Michuta with outstanding re- serve power. Jim Temp, 6' 3", center, con- trolled the rebounds and stop- ped the opponents with his size. Warren Delagrave, 5' 'l0", guard, achieved fame with his long one-hand push shot. Dave McPeak, 6', forward, al- though hampered by injuries, filled in brilliantly at the for- ward post whenever needed. Mike Skemp, 5' ll", guard, a classy performer at all times, headed the team's scoring power. Bob Gilbert, 6', center, added considerable scoring punch to the reserves. Myron Peterson, 6' 2", forward, supplied the height necessary under the buckets to control the boards. Doug Oldenburg, 5' ll", for- ward, proved his worth as a varsity reserve many times dur- ing the campaign. Eighty-five I TRA-CITY CHAMPS Defeating their local opponents by large margins, the Aquinas Blugolds have again cap- tured the intra-city crown. The Michutamen started the ball rolling by trouncing Logan, 65-4l. Next, they romped over Central, 52-3l. Then the Aquinas cage quintet wrapped up the title with consecutive wins over Logan and Central with the scores of 59-40 and 53-38, respectively. The photos below show flurries of action duringrthese intra-city games. Upper left shows Bill Skemp shooting a long one-handed push shot, while Jim Temp and Bob Gilbert wait for the rebound. Upper right, and lower right, show action with Central. A mad scramble for the loose ball is depicted in the upper photo, while the lower shows Jim Temp waiting for the ball after a bucket. The lower left photo is a picture of the State- Catholic champions, pictured after an assembly given in their honor. The master of ceremonies was Stan Torgerson, WLCX radio announcer, who gave a play-by-play description of the tourna- ment to local followers unable to attend the tournament. Eighty-six ln the finals of the tournament Aquinas met Marquette High School of Milwaukee. The Junior Hilltoppers were also a well- balanced team, possessing a great deal of height. The Marquette High School team opened the point-making in the final game, estab- lishing an early lead. The Blugolds struck back, gaining the lead midway in the initial stanza, never to lose it again. The Michuta- men led 39-24 at the half, and were never in danger in the second half, sweepingon to victory by a 61-47 score. Following the final game, the Blugolds received the beautiful Bishop Rhode Memo- rial Trophy. Three members of the first team, Mike Skemp, Tom Bruha, and Jim Temp, were awarded berths on the All- State team. The Blue and Gold were given additional honors by the spokesman of the group selecting the all-state team who sug- gested that each and every member of the team deserved a position on the team. DePere tournament spectators left the gym with the conviction that they had seen one of the greatest high school teams ever assembled on the hardwoods. The Blugolds, under the leadership of Coach John Michuta, had established the amazing record of 21 wins along with one defeat. This team provided the best scoring record in the history of Aquinas, owing to good sportsmanship and a spirit of cooperation. The Blugolds began their season in the Minneapolis arena, meeting a St. Cloud Cathedral team, defeating them, 37-33. Returning home, the Blue and Gold upset Immaculate Conception, Cedar Rapids, 54-38. St. Patrick's of Eau Claire was the third consecutive victim of the Blugolds, losing 58-43. Lourdes of Rochester then defeated the Aquinites, 58-57, for the only loss suffered by the Blugolds. This game was a thriller from beginning to end, with the Lourdes quintet dropping 'in the winning bucket at the final second of the game. Eighty-seven Recovering from their lone defeat, the Blue and Gold rolled over Logan, Cotter, McDonell, Central, and St. Patrick's by large margins. Victories 8, 9, and I0 came to the 'Golds as they routed Cotter, Viroqua, and Campion. Aquinas continued its winning ways by trouncing Loras, Logan, Central, McDonell, and Campion, bringing the victory streak to l7 games. The Blugolds gained a re- venge victory over Lourdes at Rochester, and then finished the season, defeating Loras, 56-53. A final record of I8 wins and one defeat was merited by the team. Having completed the regular season, the Michutamen went to DePere for the All-State Catholic Tournament, returning with the title. Thus ends the greatest season in Aquinas basketball history for a team that will be long remembered for its stunning play and impressive record. Left - Catholic State Basketball Trophy , Right - lntra-City Basketball Trophy ' ' , O FUT UREC MP l Like the varsity, the "B" squad completed a successful '49-'50 season with a record of nine victories and four losses. The Staszakmen gave a lively example of basketball before each game, preparing the way for the varsity, and displaying a great deal of power and ability in winning double victories over Lourdes and Temp's Tavern. The team split games with Logan, Central, and St. Pat's. This squad also triumphed over Vi roqua in its only encounter with the team.

The Aquinas Blugold nine had one of their most successful seasons during the '48-'49 year, winning seven and losing three games. The diamondmen started the season on the wrong foot, dropping the opener to Logan, 4-2. They roared right back, trouncing Campion, 4-2, but lost a decision to Cotter, 5-4, in o hard fought battle. Aquinas then met Logan in a return battle, blanking them 4-O. Trav- eling to Lourdes, the Staszakmen split a double-header, winning the first game, 5-O, and dropping the second, 2-l. Once warmed up, the Blugold nine knocked off their last four opponents by a convincing margin. Cam- pion went down to defeat before the Blugold tide, 3-2, Central dropped two games, 4-l, and 9-7. Aquinas took revenge on the Cotter Ramblers handing them a 6-3 defeat. Blugolds captured the intra-city title by de- feating Central twice and splitting with Logan. The diamondmen possessed plenty of slugging power and were backed by the superb pitching of Rendler and Schiffer.

Giving o cry of victory are Betty Murphy, Carolyn McConaghy, Judy Bruha, Sue Ann Kelly, and Patricia Ferris. l Ninety HERE' THE RACQUET A veteran Blugold tennis team led by Dick McLoone and Dan Spika came out of the '49 season with a record of 4 wins and 2 losses. This well-balanced team had little trouble defeating Viroqua and Logan twice. Central, the defending City-Champions, took two hard fought matches from the Blugolds by identical scores of 4-3. In both matches the outcome was in doubt until the final game was played. Tom Larkin battled through the season winning all his single matches. Bob Bruchman lost only one single match.

As in past years many hopeful golfers spent hours preparing themselves in this manner. When the snow finally melted and it was possible to prac- tice on the greens and fairways of the golf course, the '49 Aquinas golf team was ready to launch on its most successful season in the history of the school. For the first time, the '49 golf team de- feated their city rivals to become undis- puted city champions. The team consisting of Ken Kubiak, Bill Kratt, Jerome Sweeney, Jim Kelly, Phil Hutson, and Tony Hoch was coached by John Michuta. Their opening match with Lourdes, Roch- ester, Minn., and the return match with the same team were their only defeats of the season. On the other hand, they held double wins over Central and Logan of La Crosse, and Campion of Prairie du Chien, Wis. The '49 Aquinas golfers enjoyed a wonderful season and had a great team.
