In the attaining of this joyous end you have met and conquered many difficulties. The period just closed has been the most important of your lives, and it is for you now to put into practice the lessons learned in that long training. You go forth as soldiers of your Alma Mater to face a world hostile to her precepts and counsels. Ever conduct yourselves as true and loyal soldiers. You are about to engage in a most serious business—the business of life. You have learned from your Mother that the purpose of your sojourn here is to know, to love, and to serve God. Do this and all else will follow. Persevere in her lessons of loyalty to God and country and success will attend you. That God will bless and keep you is the earnest prayer and wish of The Faculty.Aratonttr OllasBKARL T. BRENNAN "Katie" Avon. N. Y. St. Agnes "Oh . . . that mine ad Ternary had written a book." The pretty sobriquet of ‘'Katie ’ designates a personage of no little consequence in our class. He hails from Avon. tis true, but his looks, as you see, Ik lie his native "city." It is a regrettable fact that Katie does not know when his lunch period ends, for he always seems to be just finishing up his dinner when he reaches the English class. We are sure that Katie does not talk in his sleep, neither is he a somnambulist for we have slumbered witn him in the English class for two years, and Father Grady has never noticed any word or sign to escape him during his beauty sleeps. STANTON L. BIESECKER "Hike" 335 Clinton Avenue South St. Mary’s "(iood luek lien in odd number»" "Bike” is just a little reserved, but we have gathered some interesting facts and can assure a few "newsy" lines. First, he is an athlete. We think that this is (or was) one of his secrets, because he never spoke aloud about it. He has never entered into any school athletics. To uphold his honor we must say that it isn’t due to over-application in his lessons, but to systematic application to pinochle, which —last our meaning be misconstrued—is a game of cards. Radio has also attracted his attention, and throughout the last two years he has been the proud possessor of a transmitting station and license. We hope that Bike has as much success in everything as in his radio. J. PAUL BRENNAN "Flash" 48 Glendale Park Cathedral Grammar "0 this learning, what a thing it is." Here we have the most light-hearted fellow in the school. "Flash” dispels all traces of monotony just as a hurricane dispels the fog. His "wise cracks" are the wisest of them all. and some are masterpieces of repartee and epigrammitism. But just like the rest of us, he at last succumbs to those bed-time stories in English, and sometimes spends the period in the land of dreams. But "dash" is a good student, for he can write up a book report without having read the hook just as quickly as the rest of us. If Flash shows the same speed in life as he does on the court (whence the nickname) he will certainly be a fast one. Good luck, Paul! sevenJOSEPH P. CON HEADY “Joe” 98 Grand Avenue Corpus Christi “My tongue’ ute it to me no more Than an unttringed viol or a harp” Joe is an innocent looking chap with hi blue eyes, and a perpetual grin. Rarely is he more than ten minutes late for class each morning. His great indoor sport is debating with his teachers on some subject as: '‘Resolved, that the civil rights of crippled grasshoppers in Labrador should be respected.” He takes a “snooze” quite regularly in class, finding the schedule rather boresome. Joe speaks French well, having been put through the third degree for two whole years. WILLIAM E. CHRISTIAN “Bill” 13 Fenwick Street Immaculate Conception “Dead he it not, but departed, for the artitt never diet.” Behold him in his silence every day. Studying his lessons in a mast careful way; Often in poetry he spends his time. Trying to make his lines sublime. Bill has an agreeable personality And sings with great vocality; Through his love for Milton and Poe May he gain a place in the poets' row! He's been with us but one-half year. And by his humor, wit, and cheer Has made himself to us so dear. We’ll not forget him for many a year. EDWARD J. CONNELLY 55 Breck Street “Red” " Corpus Christi “I find ezeutet for mytelf.” An avowed golf enthusiast is Red. It is a prevailing opinion among Red’s classmates that he would rather play golf than eat. Invariably he has tried to rope us into a golf tournament, but as there are no W’alter Hagens among us, Red is usually unsuccessful in his efforts on that score. In spite of the fact that he is a golf bug we all admire and respect Red. It is rumored that he studies and the fact that he usually comes out of the examinations with flying colors gives some foundation to this rumor. We all wish him everv joy and success in life. We would like to add that Red comes to school on time occasionally, that is, for the afternoon session. eightRALPH R. I)E LEO "Ralph” 73 Chapin Street St. Andrew’s "Oh, hr is as tedious as a tired hone.” The one who thinks and then speaks is a wise person. Ralph believes this and acts accordingly. No matter how heated an argument may become, Ralph is always a passive observer. When the hot-headed and vociferous Ciceroe have subsided, the quiet logic of his statements forces all others into oblivion. His natural oratorical ability is greatly enhanced by a ready flow of words whose wisdom is unquestioned. May you ever thus continue, Ralph! JOHN DELLA VENTURA "Della” JOHN B. CONNORS “Johnnie” 235 Dartmouth Street Blessed Sacrament "O tleep'. 0 Bleep'. Do not forget me.” Johnnie was always very studious in fact, mathematically speaking, he was (and still is) studious to the nth degree. This of course, is no fault but a virtue. His only faults—if we may so call them—are falling asleep in English and taking a part of his intermediate period for lunch, which seem to bother no one but the faculty. From the way he takes to golf we may soon reasonably expect him to rival One Sarazen. Johnnie’s agreeable ways have made him a favorite with us. and we extend to him our best wishes. 464 State Street St. Anthony’s "The ladieo—God bleee 'em.” Although Della has only been with us for a short time he has won the hearts of the faculty as well as the student body by his easy going ways. He is a member of the Didia-da Club, and none of the meetings of that august organization would be complete without him. Della hopes to defeat Strangler Lewis, and anyone who has a personal encounter with him can tell you he has a good chance. He is of a good hearted nature, and no one can be found who has not a good word for him. nineNORMAN F. DIESEL “ Normie" 609 Linden Street St. Boniface ‘‘The glaee of faekion and the mould of form. The obserrrd of all obeervere.” Norman always greets you with a grin that seems to swallow up his entire countenance, and a black, smooth, mirror-like hair-cut that la-speaks Valentino origin. He gets on pretty well with hi studies, perhaps due to the fact that he doesn't bother them much. Perhaps the very greatest of his worries is oral English, and the fear that he should fall asleep in class. Norman aspires to be a dentist. If he can pull teeth just as he can pull off a joke, he will be an expert in his profession. GERARD J. DENTINGER “Jerry” 40 Home Place Holy Family “A beautiful fare is d eilent commendation “Jerry,” as we call him. piMtaesses a personality that is somewhat enigmatical to those who do not know him. He is somewhat reticent, and as a result his imaginative and scholastic abilities are known only to his classmate . Jerry is also an exponent of the Spanish tongue, and can speak it quite easily. He intends to use it to good advantage some time in the future, when he travels through sunny Spain on Uncle Sam's pay-roll. The navv is a hard life, even though it is a wet one. Cheer up, Jerry! The first three miles are the hardest. BERNARD H. DOLLEN “Hernie" 2002 East Main Street Corpus Christ i “Re wiec today, ’tie madneee to defer ” To call Bernie a pessimist would be unjust, yet the consistency and patience by which he gained success in his work prove he does not intend to be accused of presumption. He has unusual talents and with these he couples hard work, so that he excels in all his undertakings. Natural talent and a dose of sincere, earnest labor form a remedy that can overcome even such pestilential diseases as examinations (genus horridissimum». It is bitter medicine but adds more to the glory of him who takes it. Bernie is one of the few extremely silent members of our class, and he is fortunate, for fate has not distributed the aureate gift any too widely this year. When we think of Bernie we cannot help but think of willingness and congeniality. tenROBERT T. DWYER 3 Burke Terrace "Bob" Sacred Heart "In life as in art—the beautiful mores in rurres." Without exaggeration we can way that Bob is by far the most popular member of his class. He is an exceptionally good mixer—therein lies his success—and he can be very humorous and serious by turns. Everything he does is undertaken whole-heartedly, be it study, recreation, or some kind of actual hard work such as arranging our first banquet. Bob always must have his little joke, but it doesn’t always provoke the proverbial little laugh. Oftentimes that little laugh turns out to be an uproarious riot of unrestrained mirth. He takes a lively interest in dead languages I .at in and Greek and has gained great success in that most lively of all languages on the rostrum. Bob has a magnetic personality that isn’t affected by the weather —as most magnetic conditions are— and is a tip-top good rrt. Of course he will make his mark, and we wish him greatest possible luck. EARL V. FISCHER WILLIAM J. DOWLING "Bill" 6 Lakeview Terrace Corpus Christ i “ hare great eontidence in the rerelations irhieh holidays bring forth." Thrifty and generous, serious and humorous, scholarly and athletic, are Bill’s characteristics. Because of his generosity he has always been a popular member of all gatherings. He is a talented linguist, and has achieved much success in Spanish. In addition to his scholastic and financial ability Bill is also an ardent and enthusiastic devotee of the manly sport of golf. If Bill keeps improving his skill in this sport, ne may some day become President. He is a “star” of the first magnitude in all he undertakes, and is a true friend, ever willing to give practical advice and lend a helping hand. 150 Avery Street Holy Apostles “ He thought as a sage, though he felt as a man." Earl is one of the few fellows who work hard, study hard, and play hard. He has a rather analytic mind, and this has perhaps been the cause for his study of science. Physics and chemistry have no terrors for him und we know positively that he is an authority on electricity and radio. Earl boasts of a transmitting station and gives us daily accounts of his achievements with it. With all this knowledge he combines an obliging personality, with the inevitable result that he is well liked by both the faculty and the students. Earl intends to be an electrical engineer; henceforth let Edison look to his laurels. elevenGILBERT A. HENNER “Gilbert ’ 250 Rosewood Terrace Corpus Christ! "She stammer : oh, what grace in lisping lies!” Gilbert is a verbose gentleman, and he uses his verbosity to good advantage in the Henner vs Faculty bouts, which take place regularly without advance notice. He and his sophistical verbal annotations are an inseparable part of the American history class. But Gilbert isn't a sophist at heart. He is extremely practical and has directed all his natural talents to mathematics. He has conquered every branch of that science which the school has offered, and he accomplished this with so little concern that we were annoyed beyond measure. Gilbert is very good natured and receives every slam or compliment with the same tolerant stoic smile. WILLIAM F. FRAWLEY "Bill” Scottsville, N. Y. Scottsville Grammar 7 must go seek some dew drops here.” Fairy Acrobatic Team Here we give you a little glimpse Of our friend Bill, who is a prince. Of medium height, and goodly span. He is indeed a fine young man. One eyebrow has a quizzical tilt Which makes the other seem to wilt. Yet he’s the chap to have about. Ever willing to help you out. In short, there’s no one who will fill The place held by our Scottsville Bill. twelveSummerville Boulevard St. Michael's “ He draweth out the thread of hi rerbosity finer than the staple of hi argument." Art's appearance at any moment accompanied by two doughnuts means that the sun is going to be outdone in producing cheerfulness, and it usually is. Art is an exemplary cheer leader and the astute manager of our baseball team. Art’s fame, however, is really due to his remarks in American History, he and Gilbert lead the class and teacher a hard life trying to follow the textbook and absorb all those subtle “wise cracks” at the same time. We never knew American history could be so funny until we heard Art’s comments upon it. He is liberally endowed with initiative and good judgment, and of his wisdom we have no doubt, for he has accomplished the difficult feat of graduating after only three years of study. Keep right a-goin’. Art. DAVII) D. HUCK "Dare" ELLISON G. HILLENGAS “Ellioon” 78 Woodward Street Corpus Christi “ am aheap in ha te, but nerer in a hurry." Whenever a picture of Ellison comen to our mind, we can never clearly discern his countenance, because it is always blocked by a towering pile of books, which he carries with him from class to class. Being naturally ambitious, he carries them all home with the patience and good will of a saint. Now. how can he possibly find any time to sleep after studying them all? There are limits even to our intelligence. He is a brilliant student of Spanish, and is a bureau of information for all doubting Thomases of that class. He is the most conscientious person we have ever seen; to him an unknown lesson is a misdemeanor. 529 Portland Avenue Our Lady Of Perpetual Help 7 hope don't intrude." If we were ever asked to give an example of cheerfulness we would without doubt select Dave. Dave is the very soul of optimism and takes everything that comes his way in a truly philosophical manner. He boasts of having been present at practically every basketball game and has accompanied the team on every trip. His escapades at Buffalo have become a subject of universal comment much to his own discomfort and our glee. Dancing has also received some of Dave's attention, and he is quite dextrous in the aesthetic art of toddling to a jazzy accompaniment. thirteenJOHN F. KEENAN 415 Park Avenue "Jethn” HU-ssod Sacrament "Coneider. I'm a peer of the realm, and I nhall die if I don't talk." When it comes to pure nonsense and foolery without a grain of sense, well, we'll hand John the jesters cap without any uncertainty of misappropriation. There isn’t a day or a class goes by that isn’t enlivened by his divers jokes and poignant witticisms. In Greek he furnishes his fellow Grecians with one laugh after the other and his presence at a senior meeting insures an impending panic by reason of his famous speeches and uncalled for remarks. He is a victim of the “tarditas adventus," and consequently seldom arrives on time. But withal he is a good student (Father Bruton's model by the way) having collected in some way or other seventy-one counts before June. This is rather “rare” as some say, and if we didn’t know John more intimately we would accuse him of excessive study. J. LEO KEATING "Duke” 136 Mulberry Street Blessed Sacrament " Habit t twrond pidfurr." Fairy Acrobatic Team. “Duke” is Ireland personified, and his jokes have helped to liven our dignified senior meeting . He is a leader of men. and missed his vocation when he was not elected cheerleader. Leo is not a sound sleeper, as he will wake up in the middle of a “snooze" and inquire, “What time is it?" Leo is heartily liked by all his classmates, who prophesy great success for him either as an actor or as an undertaker. EUGENE KLEE "Ci’ene" 5 Burkhard Place St. Boniface ■‘Faultily faultier, icily regular, splendidly nul." Here we have the opportunity to introduce you to the editor of the "Morning Knight" our scholastic journal. Gene studies rather conscientiously, we’re afraid, for he is always fairly well acquainted with hi daily lesson. Besides this, he has the reputation of being the school printer for when Gene isn’t studying, he is printing. However, it is said he shakes a wicked ankle at the most prominent dance in town. Gene is popular among the student and departs with our best wrishes. fourteenGEORGE A. KUER "Gawge" 58 Cedar Street Holy Family "So wise, so young, they my, do nertr lire long." (Jentility and Gawge are synonymous. He is one of the few silent members of the class. In spite of his apparent contentment, Gawge is a pluggcr and is usually a victor in all his scholastic battles. Intermediate is his specialty, although Spanish and science receive a good share of his time. His quiet disposition acts as a check upon the potential boisterousnens prevalent in his clames. He is a good fellow and has many friends who hope that his career mill be successful. ELMER G. KLEIN HANS "Elmer" 162 Conkey Avenue St. Michael’s ' He blushes: all is safe" Here we have Elmer, a veritable duke in demeanor and manners. Upright, hardworking and thoughtful he has justly merited our esteem. Elmer speaks French well, but German even better, and it is a rare treat to hear him mingle German accents with Gallic words. Some of his powers (?) of deduction and analysis are marvelous, and almost take our breath by their originality. Should he continue thus, he may some day become a second Sherlock. BERNARD J. LAWLER "Bamie" 393 Augustine Street Holy Rosary “ Tis bark of kindly warmth, only I'm near the radiator." Bamie is classed among the best known dance orchestra leaders in our fair city. He is a fine pianist too, and he has often made the piano part with some lively, popular tunes. Barnie is just as proficient in his studies as in hts orchestra work, although we believe that the studying is not quite so congenial. He is a rather cheerful companion and a good fellow to have about. His sincerely is one of his most dominant characteristics, and as a result such criticism as he gives is always heeded. fifteenCHARLES L. LECHNER "Charlie" 315 Emerson Street Holy Rosary "Eferybody nay it and what everybody gays must be true." Charlie is a popular lad among his classmates, being good natured and friendly with all. Hus one great ambition is to be a salesman. He doe not lack training in this held, for he has often tried to sell the school building to some strange passerby. He is also an ardent student of “La Lingua Espafiola,” and is a rival of Cervantes in the mastery of that tongue. Although suspected of studying it has never been proved against him. In spite of these faults we find him a very likable fellow. MORTIMER J. LEARY "Mori" 99 Gould Street Blessed Sacrament "A thinker is a person." Fairy Acrobatic Team. It is not the fear of faculty ban that inspires Mort to take the few tons of books home each night; we understand that it is a natural love of study. Mort is not only a fine student, but he is a wonderful athlete, and we owe more than one victory to his skill and fighting spirit. He is also an able cartoonist and a splendid orator, and in addition to these accomplishments he has a pleasing personality. Needless to say, he doesn’t have to court popularity. We know that this little athlete—orator —artist nas a great future in store for him, for he has the innate ability to “put it over” both on the diamond (he plays baseball, too) and in class. The team will surely miss him next year, and we too shall miss him, but we shall never forget him. JOHN A. MAIER "John" Cold water, N. Y. St. John the Evangelist Greece, N. Y. "I am sick of this bid world! The daylight and the sun grow painful to me." When John isn’t laughing he’s arguing with his teachers, and sometimes both. These arguments furnish an infinite amount of amusement, and seem to be established as an indispensable factor in the school’s curriculum. The latest rumor is that John intends to revise Caesar’s account of his Gallic Wars. Be that as it may, he has made many friends who sincerely hope he succeeds in the medical profession, which he has elected to follow. sixteenEDWARD R. McGRAW "Eddie” 271 Dartmouth Street Nazareth Hall “The ladies call him sweet, the stars he treads on kiss his feet." Behold the world's most bashful man. Look him over, girls, he iant half so bashful as he claims to be. Eddie is an active member of the renowned "Fairy Acrobatic Team" in which he plays the part of the strong man. He just loves to study, and every afternoon he may be men with as many as one book tucked nicely under his arm. He never loses his temper, and all his conversation is carried on quietly. There s a reward awaiting the person who ever heard Eddie shout. Of course, we need not say that he is very popular among us. CHARLES MARRON 210 Knickerbocker Avenue “Doe” St. Mary’s “When a man's life is at stake no delay is too long.” Behold our noble president, who possesses more dignity than all other presidents combined. When it comes to gaining notoriety without doing anythin® he mak«-s old King Tut look like a shadow. Doc takes full advantage of his nigh office, for he believes with the rest of us that election to any presidency naturally presupposes arbitrary vacations. The faculty do not support this view, however, and Doc often has conferences with them behind clotted doors. He is the pivot around which all scholastic affairs revolve, and his vacations do not remove his influence at all from these functions. He is the center of attraction at all basketball games and sometimes afterwards. JOHN E. McGRAW 271 I artmouth Street "Mac” Nazareth Hall “Let me die facing the enemy.” John is one of our biggest men. officially as well as fthysically. His avoirdupois was used to good advantage n superintending the ticket selling at our basketball games. John has been appointed to represent Aquinas at the annual convention of the Beef and Chocolate Trust, Inc., of which he is a distinguished member. Among his friends John is known as the Sheik of Dartmouth Street, for he’s a great hit with the girls. We all like John and hope that he may realize his hopes for the future. seventeenJOHN EDWARD NAUGHTON “Eddie” 54 Cameron Street Holy Apostle ' awoke one morning and found myself famous.” Eddie always persists in obtaining bin rights, even if it require physical strength. He has expectations to compete with some of our present day pugilists, and we hope that these expectations will not be discouraged in any way. Despite this aggressive phase of his character, he is rather reserved and applies himself consistently to his work. Some of his original formulas in Chemistry class have startled even our noble principal. Eddie is a good bet in the race for success, and the present odds are two to one that he will be a winner. JOHN T. NOTHNAGLE “Jack” 11 I»cuat Street Holy Rosary “Such trifles as I will lead to serious mischief ” Jack has been told that he would be a smart fellow if he went to school, and we all agree. We can only conjecture how smart he would be if he came to school every day. His little vacations do not seem to hinder him greatly though. But it is in debate that he makes his mark. He has fluency of speech and it apparently costs him no effort to speak publicly. This, together with those ready smiles and those wonderful, ready-made excuses make him assume a somewhat heroic appearance in our eyes. JAMES H. MONTAGUE “Jim” 187 Brooks Avenue St. Monica's “Talk to him of Jacob's ladder and he would ask the number of steps” Jim is rather a little fellow, but he always manages to make himself heard. He is just as fond of hard work as he is of recreation, which is saying a lot. Jim is a good student too, and studies seriously with a view to future use, but this does not detract from his popularity, but rather addis to it. He is a careful and convincing speaker, and we still remember his little talk about good nooks. If a well developed mind together with a strong determination assure any success in life, then Jim is truly fortunate, for he has these qualities in evidence. eighteenFRANCIS M. OBERUES "Obie" 419 Flower City Park Sacred Heart "I carry my satchel still." Obie is a very quiet and industrious lad, with a ready smile which speaks good-will to all. He is always ready to help a fellow in trouble and his entrance into a class is always acclaimed by sighs of relief on the part of his classmates. His aversion to debates is proverbial, but he has a distinct liking for mathematics and often spends long hours solving difficult problems in trigonometry and intermediate. Obie expects to be an engineer and we all hope he succeeds in his life's work. W. JAMES NOTHNAGLE “Jimmie" 11 Locust Street Holy Rosary “Counts his sure gains, and hurries back for more,” We are told that Jimmie "butchers” Spanish. Seeing that he is addicted to this terrible habit, it is perhaps well for the bland tongue of the sefiores that he is absent most of the time. He and Jack have a very great love for school routine and believe from the bottom of their hearts that "absence makes the heart grow fonder.” Jimmie is a likeable sort of fellow, and even the faculty seem offended when he stays out too long. It is his intention to add, some years hence, LL.D. to his name. Perhaps we shall hear his voice thundering in the Senate at some future time, although now he seems quick-witted and energetic. JOSEPH P. O BRIEN “Joe" 1060 E. Main Street Corpus Christi " His understanding at the best is of the middling size." Joe is a pretty lively fellow in all his classes, quite frequently springing a "new one” on some unsuspecting teacher or pupil. His motto seems to Ik "First, last and always a good time.” His knowledge of sports is so vast we couldn't even begin to catalogue all he knows. This, together with his Irish fight, has won for him numerous friends. He has been the mainstay of our baseball team for several seasons, and is famous as the composer of our "Didiada Song," which has merited for him an eternal place in the "Aquinas Hall of Fame." nineteenWILLIAM J. O'REILLY “BUT 61 Pearl Street Lyons Falls Fairy Acrobatic Club " Hold the fort for I am coming.' Bill is a downright jolly, good fellow, we'll say. There are few mornings on which we are not roused from our books by his jovial greeting. His good nature seems to be without end; there's always a slap on the back and a laugh-provoking question or two. Bill has gained some renown in the field of pugilistic art, which he quite frequently demonstrates much to our enjoyment. He also plays basketball and baseball and then, just for diversion, you know, reads Virgil daily, which in his opinion has it all over Hearst’s. Bill’s also a good speaker, and taking all together he has made a good and lasting impression on us. May the gods be propitious to you. Bill! FRANCIS J. O'NEILL “Frank" 272 Magee Avenue Sacred Heart “1 hare come to the conclusion that mankind consumes twice too much food.” Just as Frank occupies a rather liberal part of terrestial space, so he occupies a correspondingly great place in our estimation. He is an ardent listener to all current jokes, and contributes no small amount of them himself. Nature seems to have fitted him for a bouncer, and he has played the distinguished role to perfection. He has been a prominent figure at all our basketball games, and more than one intruder has felt his "gentle push." But his interest and success in basketball extends farther than bouncing; he led the Nina Club through a successful season, and his fame as a manager is secure. Here's wishing you success, Frank! MILTON RUF 67 Zorn Street “Milt" St. Andrew’s “But he shaved with a shell when he chose. 'Twos the manner of primitive man.” "Milt", although bodily only 20 per cent of the Greek class,already possesses about 75 pe rcent of its knowledge. He speaks Greek like a native, that is, when he drops in occasionally. "Milt” is a scholar and although we have never seen him take home more than a book or so, he always knows his lessons. Verily he is a genius. He is an all around good sport and his keen sense of humor has helped to liven up many a gathering. As a Roman he can throw as mean a line as Cicero himself. Great success is prophesied for him, not only as a scholar but as a connoisseur. Atta boy, "Milt." twentyG. OLIVER SMITH "OUie” 225 Avenue A St. Michael’s hare often regretted ppoken but neper haring kept aileni.” From Ollie’s everyday attitude we are led to believe that his motto is. “Slowly onward do I tread." He is an admirer of Father Keefe’s method of elucidating I atin, and he often gives some astonishingly original translations that would awe Caesar himself. He maintains a stoic countenance throughout the entire day. which is occasionally broken by a wide, tantalizing grin. Nevertheless. OHie is a fine student who will surely make his mark. GERARD J. SMITH “Gerard” 128 Rugby Avenue St. Peter and Paul’s "Oh keep thou my weak wit. and aharpen my dull tongue.” Gerard will some day run a close second to the “divine Rudolph” as an exquisite and graceful swayer to the rythm of melodious music. After his studies, his greatest avocation is dancing and jazz music. His mind is somewhat romantically inclined, having a great love for Shakespeare and all poetry in general, and a great abhorrence for things mathematical. He aspires to be a great orator, too, and if he shows his characteristic persistence and aggressiveness we are sure he will succeed. TIMOTHY J. SULLIVAN "Tim” 1361 Dewey Avenue Immaculate Conception "Read not my blemishea in the worUTa report” Judging by the number of questions Tim asks in physics, he is easily the smartest boy in that class. He combines with his genius, however, real athletic prowess, evidenced by his cheerleading at our basketball games. He’s a regular riot with the girls. Between the halves of any game he can be found treating at least a dozen “Nazareth maidens” in the lunchroom. Tim is one of the most tireless workers of the class and we gratefully recognize his efforts in arranging our second banquet. He is popular with all his class-mutes. who are with him in whatever he undertakes. Watch out for Tim, girls. twenty-oneCHARLES A. WELTZER "CkmUf 142 York Street St. Peter and Paul's " have immortal longings in me." Our petit flevd, Charlie, in a practical and reliable example of the law of rompenaation. small in stature, but mighty in mind and deeds. He is a most careful and assiduous student in French, and we bet he can speak it per-f »ctly, but we never hear him say a word. He is always reserved but with his reticence he invariably combines pleasantness and complaisance that command more than ordinary respect from his classmates. RUSSEL E. VOYER "Russel” 312 Main Street Batavia. N. Y. Cathedral Grammar “Stately and tall he moves in the hall The chief of a thousand for grace” If hard work and initiative are the requisites for fame. Russel needn't worry about getting his. He applies himself so studiously and persistently that we are almost green with envy, and his pluck in spite of obstacles is to be admired. He has cultivated the merited esteem of both teachers and fellow students. His sagacious advice has settled many a question. Moat of all we admire his colloquial English which instead of being simpler than his written English, is redundant with so many endless, formidable, and onomatopoeic (here’s a new one. Russel) words that we can only blink and stare and seek at a later time Noah’s moat popular work. The gorgeous sound of "obstreperous physiognomies,” "alleviation of discrepancies" and "cantankeroaity” still lingers with us. Good I uck, Russel! twenty-twotwenty-threeHAROLD E. DOUGHERTY “Harold” Avon, N. Y. St. Agnes Sot as we wanted it. But as God wanted it.” In thin young man from Avon we find a model of quietness peculiar to the average boy. He is never known to say any unnecessary thing, speaking only when he is spoken to. Maybe this accounts for his failure in oral English where he has to speak with no ones saying a word to him. Still, he doe good work otherwise and we know his future will be bright and happy. LAWRENCE E. DAVIN “Dode” Avon, N. Y. St. Agnes “They're only truly great who are truly good.” "Dode” seems to have a tendency to day dreaming when the teacher is talking and this has caused him some uncomfortable moments after he has been brought back to earth by a rather severe reprimand. However, ne seems to be getting better control of his sense and is doing his work more satisfactorily than at first. He is from Avon and reflects no discredit on that burg. He expects to be village trustee down there and we hope he gets tne position. He has the very best wishes of his fellow students, and they hope he will be a prosperous town official. HOW ARD G. FINZER "Finscr” 1353 Main Street East Corpus Christi “ hirer y one excels in something in tchick another fails.” Now this gentleman is as good at one thing as at another. It makes no difference what it is, he can do it. He will some day be a great orator or emancipator—maybe a second Daniel Webster. If so, we hope he will try to abolish the income tax so dreaded by everyone. We nope his master mind will make a fine impression on the commercial world. twenty-fourMX LPH R. FURSTOSS "80” 1233 Clinton Avenue North Our I ady of Perpetual Help "The rule of my life is to make business a pleasure, and pleasure my business." ”80" is the inspiration of the class. He is active in anything that pertains to school activities. While he is an ambitious young man, he is inclined to take things easy at times, as one will see when he takes his morning nap. However. ”80" has a bright, WARM future ahead of him, as his father is a baker and maybe he will follow his father's trade. But it makes no difference what profession he takes up, he will be sure of success if he does not undertake to work too hard. ALLAN A. FOREST "Al" 76 Curtis Street St. Mary's “ Honest labour bears a lately face." There isn’t much to say about this young man because there isn’t much to him as all who know him will admit. In fact, he is the shortest and thickest of the class, but of course he can't help that. He is a very popular fellow among his school mates. We have no doubt that he will be a successful business man and a great deal is expected of him. JOHN J. HOGAN " Hatrk-eye” 7 Skuae Park Corpus Christi "One of the fete, the immortal names. That icere not bom to die" We haven't very much to say about John except that he is about the best student in the class. He thinks about as much of speed in shorthand and in typewriting as Henry of a Ford. If he keeps going at this rate he will be highly successful as a business man, but he believes hard work is not beneficial to health. twenty-fiveVICTOR M. LOOTENS “Vic" 44 Hulbert Avenue Fairport, N. Y. Our Lady of Victory "Prince and lord are but the breath of king , An honest man's the noblest work of God." Hi quiet and adroit manner and hi winsome disposition have won for him a place in the heart of all his companion . “Vic" is a lover of business and we expect to see him firmly entrenched as Mayor or Justice of the Peace in Fairport, and we all wish him the highest degree of success. RAYMOND T. McKAGUE “Mickey” 411 Ravine Avenue St. Mary’s "For blessings ever wait on rirtuous deed . And though late, a sure reward sueeeeds." "Mickey" is the sort of guy everyone likes to deal with, and we are sure he will be a most successful business man. With his blonde hair and blue eyes he will attract many friends later on in life. He is very adept at typewriting and shorthand with an abundance of English that would astonish Emerson and Render. He has the best wishes of his classmates and friends. ASHLEY W. LOOMIS "Ash” 63 Savannah Street Cathedral Grammar "They are happy men whose natures sort with their rorations.” "Ash" is about the fastest worker in the class. In fact, he goo no fast, especially in typewriting, that he cannot see where he is right or wrong. Then when he looks the work over he finds that it is wrong, and consequently ha- to write it over again. Still he should worry for ho has a career ahead of him. He has a wonderful voice and in all probability will be the second Caruso. All of us wish him luck and if he takes his time he will get it. twenty-sixTHOMAS E. O’NIEL “Toddy” 99 White Street Cathedral Grammar “And if I chance to fall below Don't view me with a critic' eye Hut pas my imperfection by.” In “Toddy” we have a young man who promise to be the greatest orator the world has ever known. He will probably take Patrick Henry’s place. He is a good natured fellow and everyone likes him, girls included. There is no doubt as to his success in life as he seems to possess a mind that dispenses with study. CHARLES P. MORELLA “Chuck” 12 Gordon Park St. Bridget's “And sure th' Eternal Matter found Hi single talent well employed ” Here we have the star of the class. When it comes to speed in typewriting, he makes Georgs L. Hossfeld look like a snail. He expects to be president some day but we anticipate a little. Nevertheless, we are sure his ouiet demeanor and the earnest way in which he tackles a thing will place him on the top rung of the ladder of success. LEO T. SULLIVAN “Sully” 343 Platt Street Cathedral Grammar “Born for success he seems With grace to win, and with heart to hold.” “Sully” as he is known to all is a great lover of athletics and should he ever put the energy into business that he puts into sports we have no doubt that he will be a howling success in anything he undertakes. We all hope that success will smile kindly on him. twentysevenARTHUR E. WELCH ‘MrT 38 Harris Street St. Bridget's “Tkr weakest arm is strong enough that strikes With the sword of justice.” “Art” is one of those people that take life as it comes. He has never been known to worry about anything, no matter what, and we suppose he will continue to be a happy-go-lucky guy. He has a charming disposition and is liked by all his friends. In the classroom he knows just enough of each lesson to let him be dismissed with the rest of us. He is an expert typist and phonographer, and all his comrades hope he will be a prosperous business man. ALBERT J. VITO “Al” 98 Adams Street St. Mary's “It is not wise to be wiser than is necessary.” ”AI” could hide all his ambition in a nutshell. Despite this fact, he is always ready to help someone else, but when he has to do something for himself then he’s stuck. His typewritten work is always perfect from his own standard of perfection, but that’s not saying much. Yet, he will get along somehow at something and we wish him the best of luck. twenty-eightTHE ARETE t. Cfjomas Aquinas ROM the thirteenth century there rise up before us many eminent and noble characters whose names are cherished in history, and whose spiritual lives, amid times so turbulent and uncertain, are a constant source of edification for us. The name of Thomas Aquinas is one that has made the thirteenth century deservedly acclaimed the most glorious in all Christian epochs, and today we reverence and respect that name just as it was reverenced and respected of old. St. Thomas, we are told, was born in the Kingdom of Naples, near Aquinas, and very early in life he evidenced that profound yet simple religious feeling that was later to make him one of the most beloved doctors of the Church. His extraordinary brillance in all branches of learning was made manifest in his youth, and we read that he equalled and even surpassed in knowledge some of his instructors. Reception into the Dominican order occurred at an early age but he was not ordained until some family resistance was overcome. He immediately assumed his duties of teaching, and held professorships at various European educational centers. Distinction attended him in this pursuit as it had in all the others; he wrote many theological works, and at the present day his “Summa Theologiae” is recognized as standard authority. Whether his celebrity is due more to his remarkable mental acumen than to his spiritual life is very doubtful. He himself stated that all such knowledge as he had attained was dependent upon the mercy and justice of God. From this we may regard his intellectual powers as especial graces conferred upon him, and it is a logical view to take, for no other theologian or doctor of the Church has excelled him in sagacity or erudition. No more appropriate patron could be chosen for our school than this immortal Dominican Divine. The reason is obvious. The ideals of Catholic education constitute not alone secular instruction, but they combine with it religious teaching and practice. All education is vain that does not lead to God, for absolute materialism fosters false and often egotistic independence. It is, therefore, fitting that our beloved school should be placed under the guidance of Saint Thomas, who not only advocated religion in conjunction with material education, but who molded his own life after these ideals. Cunt Friends wait for us; enemies wait for us; opportunities, fortunes, and misfortunes wait for us; everything waits for us except time, which waits for no man. In summer and in winter, in spring and in autumn, during peace and during war, in this country and in every other, time glides swiftly by. It delays not for riches, for poverty, or for prestige. For some, time is short; for others, it is long; but for all men it is the same period of time. Everyone has twenty-four hours to his day,— kings no more, beggars no less. Of these twenty-four hours, eight are spent in repose. This leaves but two-thirds of the day in which to execute our duties. Some, during this time, accomplish little; others achieve nothing, while a few—succeed in fulfilling the duties of the day. We should work now, in the present, ever thinking of the proverb, “Never put off until to-morrow what you can do to-day,” and at the same time, iemembering the words of the Apostle, “The past is gone; the future we have no control over; the present alone is given us to do good.” twenty-nineTHE ARETE JSeautp j% pots in ftocfjcstcr HERE are many cities of our country which may justly boast of marvelous beauty of nature or of man’s handiwork. Rochester is prominent among these. No other city is more wealthy in the wonders of nature and the works of art. and in no section of this city may one go without chancing upon many things pleasant to the sight and celestial in their inspiration. There is the park system of our city, a system which can compare favorably with the best in the country in its object of giving pleasure through beauty. At all seasons of the year the many parks are under the constant care of men efficient in the producing of beauty through the medium of nature. Though all these parks are beautiful in their massing of trees and shrubs and in their layout of design, yet each has its different means of impressing us according to our different ideas of beauty. A heaven for the lover of plant life is Highland Park. Here, in every season of the year, are seen shrubs and flowers of every shade and tint. These may be found on the rolling lawns under the blue open sky, or, if their character does not permit this, in the nurtured soil under the glass roof of the conservatory. He who delights in these flowers and shrubs may pass through this park, year after year, and find in each passing many elegant varieties of bloom which he has not seen before. Another spot whose mission of portraying beauty is of a different class, yet of no less degree, is Seneca Park. No one would say that there is not beauty in the sleek coats and in the forms of the many fur-bearing animals, in the bright and varied colors of the caged birds, or in the movements of graceful deer, and it is here that these may all be seen. In one section there is a beautiful little lake. Some distance above the level of this lake a road runs along one side, and, looking down from this, one sees a beautiful mirror set in a frame of highly colored shrubbery, the mirror itself dotted with green and white water lilies, the golden reflection of the sun from the backs of gold-fish venturing near the surface, and the graceful movements of the white swans. At the west side of this park one may stand at the top of a steep sloping bank which borders that side of the park and, looking down through large trees which cover the bank, catch pleasing glimpses of the winding river far below and colored flashes from rocks on the lower opposite shore. Scenes to inspire the romantic person are found in Genesee Valley Park. It is enchanting here, on an afternoon in summer, to watch the brightly colored canoes glide over the blue water of the river or drift silently with the current under the shadow of drooping willows along the bank. It is even more pleasing at night to stand at a point on the east side of the river where a small bridge crosses the canal just before it unites with the river, and to see and even feel the scene before you. The long line of silver light from the moon in the west stretches towards you along the canal. The black outline of the willows along the banks reaches out into this light and in the blackness of their shadow dance the colored lights and jack-o-lanterns of the silent canoes. The splendor of it all is increased by the faint sound of stringed instruments which, with the dull lapping of the water, is the only sound which breaks the evening quiet. thirtyTHE ARETE These parks alone would make Rochester renowned as a city of great beauty yet there are many other places which may truly be called beauty spots. There is Browncroft, the modern residential section of the wealthy where are found the most beautiful homes in the city set amid trees, shrubs, and flowers selected and placed by the most noted landscape artists. Beauty begotten of wealth may be seen in the wonderful structure of the Eastman Theatre and School of Music. A visit to this institution through its wondrous corridors, rich in deep rugs, elegant tapestry and beautiful statuary, and, in which, as in the parks, one finds some new object of beauty at every turn and in the most inconspicious place, makes one feel as in a dream. Those interested in painting, sculpture, and the other arts, will find a place of remarkable beauty in the Art Gallery, where there are exhibited marvelous paintings by the best known artists of today, and works of the Grand Old Masters. There are many other places not well known though no less beautiful which one might name, yet which can be better appreciated by coming on them unsuspecting. In this way one would be impressed and inspired by the greatest of all—unexpected beauty. The inspiration afforded by all true beauty, especially by the beauties of nature, carries with it, into a man, something which is hard to explain. Standing in its presence as on the shore of a broad, quiet lake; or, in a woods in the evening when the black trees outline themselves against the blue evening sky, there comes over one a consciousness of God’s nearness, God’s greatness, something which no man can explain to another, yet which each feels within himself. This consciousness is one of the greatest gifts which true beauty has to offer; and in places which inspire this feeling, our city abounds. $» $ $ Cfjc J eUjcomer There are many ways in which new arrivals accustom themselves to the school. Some enter with an air of apprehension, as though they are afraid of everything. Others seem timid, but, as time goes on, they show that they were only attacked by a transitory nervousness. Others, again, enter with an air of pugnacity, which is intended to make their companions feel that they can take care of themselves. Some just ramble in and a few weeks later quietly disappear. Some roam through the school arrogantly, as though superior to the others. Some, trying to be friendly, are so forward in their ways that their true character is unnoticed and they find it difficult to make friends. Many, who were famous in their own community, fail utterly on entering the new school. All these things are beneficial. Moving from one school to another is a difficult thing, but it is of great assistance in making a boy reliable. A critic is one who on most occasions is more attentive to what is wanting than what is present. To be humble to superiors is DUTY. To equals—COURTESY. To inferiors—NOBLENESS. To all—SAFETY. thirty-oneTHE ARETE cijool Spirit The student body, individually and collectively, is the very essence and foundation of the school. As the students are, so is the school. To the passive observer, a school building may by its massive structure and artistic design appear a veritable temple of culture, education, and refinement. However, if one probed into the actual school life of that noble structure, it might resemble greatly the “whited sepulchres” of the Bible: beautiful without, but horrible within. The great determining factor of the morale and character of the student body is its love for and loyalty to the school,—school spirit. What great things have been accomplished in scholastic activities by school spirit! What a soul-stirring sight it is to watch a school team battling its way, inch-by-inch, to victory, spurred on by the deadening cheers of a loyal crow’d of supporters! How' bravely those athletes fight for their school, forsaking the human desire for individual honor and devoting their undying efforts to aid their Alma Mater! That very love of country w'hich stirred up the colonial patriots to defend their native land is the outward expression of loyalty w'hich the students manifest for the school. Our own dear Aquinas is blessed w'ith a gathering of devoted students whose school spirit is incomparable. The history of our school is marked indelibly w'ith concrete examples of this spirit. May our beloved Alma Mater ever be imbued wdth this spirit of love, loyalty, fealty and devotion. May the former successes of our school repeat themselves in the future for the honor and glory of Aquinas! $ icings of tf)e Cfjemists Little fellow, Johnny Paul, Pouring from a bottle tall Liquid of a brilliant sheen, Liquid of a nickel green, Little Johnny hand lets shake, In an instant bottle breaks.

A strange, yet by no means awkward, comparison may be drawn between men and verbs Take, for instance, an active verb. This immediately recalls to our mind the live, wide-awake man who is ready, grasping for every opportunity, striving steadily to raise himself in the world. Contrary to this, is the man who may be compared with a passive verb. He is the being who might have been—if he had the opportunity. Plenty, and even more of this he has, but he has not the ambition to grasp it at the correct time. He is the grumbler whom the world would probably survive better without. The qualities and characteristics of a transitive verb may be applied to the man who is always at his work. He does things himself, even though he may not be a genius. He tries as best he knows how. While the man like an intransitive verb is one who is justly called a parasite— one who cannot depend upon himself—one who cannot take the slightest responsibility. He is a nuisance to all who know him for although they may be willing to help him out, very few, if any, will do everything for him while he watches on. A defective verb may be likened to a man with a weak, unresolved will, one who is easily led into wrong and has not the will-power to extract himself. He is the slave of others, for whom he commits crimes at the promise of the slightest reward and then pleads for mercy, like the coward he is, when captured. A man like an auxiliary verb is something of the same character as the man compared with a defective verb for although this man may be more learned than the other, he is only a hanger on who must have constant help or he is comparatively useless. A man who rejoices in seeing others happy is like a copulative verb. He is always making friendships and his greatest joy is to see his fellow-men in perfect harmony. Thus we see the likeness between men and verbs. The one, while it may not actually exist, is an accurate resemblance of the other. If each and every man would copy the example taught by some of these mere nothings, he would find himself much better and happier than he is today.

In former years, however, these rooms in the upper regions of houses were the dwellings of men, whose literary works adorn the English language. A writer once said; “Good literature grows in attics.” That this statement is true is borne out by the fact that nearly all ancient and many modern writers have made their abode on the top story. The great Greek and Latin writers inhabited this part of the house and did most of their thinking there. Did not Pythagoras live in the attic? Practically all of the litterateurs of the Eighteenth Century did their working, thinking, and writing while confined to their garrets in Grub Street and Covent Garden, London. Samuel Johnson, in his paper, “The Rambler,” makes special mention of these garrets. Besides the usual miscellaneous articles found in an attic, other unseen objects are hidden there. These objects are the inspirations which excite poetic and prose productions. But why do men of literary tastes find the garret the favorite abode of the Muses? The reason no one seems to know. It may be that the quiet and serenity of the surroundings cause the mind to perform without distractions, thus producing most meritorious works. It may be that the broad view, as seen from the attic, tends to produce a similar broadening of mind and to so enlarge the faculties that new ideas and new literature are the result. It may be that the very situation of the place makes its inhabitants high-minded, instilling into their brain elevated sentiments and lofty ideals. Whatever the reason, literature produced in a garret always flourishes. The seeds of thought, infused into the minds of men, germinated and developed in the tranquil environs of a garret, always blossom forth into the richest and most colorful flowers of literature. He had just returned from the club. They had a wonderful time, and consequently he was slightly dazed while walking home.

By her training they have been better prepared than the average man to cope with the problems of life—infinitely better prepared than had they not passed through her hands. She fails to see a reason for the Aquinas man’s being content with mediocrity or less in his chosen field of life. There is too frequent a tendency in the Catholic man to dally in the pursuit of fame and power and affluence, the worth of which he seems to underestimate, perhaps through what he may consider a sense of the relative values of the here and the hereafter. At least this is the most respectable excuse which we may suppose, and probably the most plausible. Such a man ignores the import and philosophy of the inspired writer who says, “What doth it profit a man—”. A study of the towering figures of the past or of our leaders today testifies that the failure of the ordinary gifted man is invariably traceable to some weakness of character. It is not too much to suppose that a defect which precludes temporal achievements is often as likely to deprive one of eternal triumph. We must remember that our talents have temporal ends—and that those temporal ends may be a mighty means to good. They are the only weapons of our device to advance and to protect the right. Concretely it may be said that a not unimportant object of success to the Aquinas man is the effective eradication of the ever-present, cruel, unjust, and vicious opposition to our Catholic School system. This is one point among many that the times present. Go out, men of Aquinas, and prove to an incredulous world that Catholic training is highly compatible with temporal success as well as most important to the eternal end.

Throughout her industries, which are roads for catapulated Americans who work therein, the humans hurry, impelled by new thoughts, ideas, inventions and commands. They rush to work, rush their work, rush from work, and, rush wherever they go. In her commerce, the large boats and the fast freights are but reflectors of the hurried ones who manipulate them. Transportation must keep pace with the consumer, American transportation therefore is traveling at a fast rate of acceleration. We must have our mile-a-minute subway train, our twentieth-century limited, our curving, rumbling elevated, and our street-cars (which are exceptions to the law’ of speed). Along the roads to learning one may see hundreds wrecked, the result of affiliating knowledge with speed. “To the city with all speed,” is the cry of Agriculture’s growing sons w'ho are migrating cityward where many hasty ambitions are gratified, and w’ho are overlooking the vital importance of a farming life to the American people. The Americans in common are impelled by the eager desire to lead their competitors and by the two qualities, initiative and aggressiveness, which emancipated them from a yoke of tyranny. Statistics indicate how much our hurried existence is influenced by these propellers, especially in our rapid increase in commerce, industry, and invention. We have an incomparable lead in the commercial world. We are the originators, for America is the workshop of the world. Shall we land in the ditch? Let us be optimistic and not adhere to the pessimistic statements of our foreign admirers who love yet hate. We, truly, in our over progressiveness, are overlooking our forests; we are not conserving our foods although we learned much through being rationed in the war-time period; wre are not scrupulous of our materials.

To be or not to be, that is the burning question. Ah, study hall! How changed is thy position! This year, in its new location, it is 3321,4 feet nearer Weber’s store than last year. If things go on this way it will soon be located in the store itself. Of course, potentially, figuratively, literally, and actually, the study hall is at Weber’s. The class in American History promises to be one of great interest. The subject discussed today was the ride of Paul Revere. The actual historical facts attending this first Kentucky Derby were questioned by Milton Ruf. Milt stated with calm assurance that Paul could never have made such speed as history tells us because of the watchful cops who were patroling that road. He would thus have been arrested for speeding. The logical result then, according to Milton, would have been that Paul would have had to cable Congress for bail money and by the time he received it and was set free, the British would have surprised the colonists. Moreover, Milton added, that by the time he received the money he would have been too old and feeble to finish the ride. So there you are. Gilbert Henner then turned the attention of the class to the present day. He wanted to know why France sent 100,000 bill collectors into the Ruhr to try and get their share of the German war debt. Bill O’Reilly answered him by saying that they would need 100,000 men to carry back $4.00 in German marks. Then the bell rang and I was carried out. As we arrived in school this morning, we were greeted by a vest-pocket edition of Noah’s Catastrophe. The water pipes had burst and made the school look like a miniature of the Johnstown flood. The only difference between our flood and Noah’s was, that Noah’s animals did not get a vacation from the ark, but we students did. Frank O’Neill, master plumber, saved the day by repairing to the cellar, where he turned off the water, assisted by our principal. There is absolutely no happy medium in our existence. Either there is a flood or there is a fire. This time it was a fire. Just before school closed this afternoon, a fire broke out in the basement. Everyone did the Charlie Paddock out the door in nothing flat. When the firemen arrived they must have thought it was Saturday. The school was vacant. The only time that that student body flirts with fire is when they light their cigarettes. I think some stopped on their way out of the school to light up by the fireside. After all, water is the bane of our life. First we had a flood: then a fire. The firemen soon turned the latter into a flood. All hail William Shakespeare! The fire of thy genius once again casts its light upon our English class. Today the class began the study of the “Tragedy of Macbeth.” Shakespeare should have lived in this glorious age of civilization and viewed the present situation in Russia. He would have termed Macbeth as “Thou Piker.” “Mac,” with all his cold blooded murders and evil machinations as his recommendation, would not even have been eligible for membership in any third-rate Bolshevik society of today. Shakespeare brings into his tradegy that English love of the mystic. What a combination he and Conan Doyle thirty-eightTHE ARETE would have made? The probable outcome would have been a drama in which Julius Caesar and Sherlock Holmes play ouija in order to find out the amount of their income tax. The physics class today entered into a heated discussion with each other upon the possibilities of Radio. They seemed to place unlimited possibilities in this invention. This surely is a scientific age. Marconi comes out with a declaration that he is going to talk with Mars by radio. Conan Doyle goes him one better and states that he has already talked with the spirits of the dead, and proves it by a speech before the W. C.T.U. The Virgil class today made a very important historical discovery. It seems that Paris was the gentleman selected by the gods to be the judge of the world’s first beauty contest. The contestants were, Venus, Juno, and Helen of Troy. Thus we have the approximate date of the first Beauty Contest. Then came a War, as usual. The Trojans and the Greeks could not get along together at all. The Trojans ordered the Greeks to take their restaurants and go home. This made the Greeks angry so they organized an army and started to look around for the battle front. I guess they would have been looking yet only someone told them to set out for Troy. They stopped here in Rochester on their way through on the Empire State Express. No doubt our grandfathers can remember that. At last the June exams are here. This is one week in which no one stays home in order to avoid noxious examinations. I hope we all pass. By the way, I read in the paper this morning that when they dug up King Tut’s tomb they found some cracked skulls. They must have had spiritists in those days too.

OUR ENGLISH TEACHERS ARE RIGHT thirty-nineTHE ARETE £fjc Hife of a JfuiTP Jfrtenb FAT grizzly was loafing near the border of a wood. I studied him through my field glasses, from the leeward edge of the opening, as I had studied him in previous years from similar points of vantage. In fact, I had watched him so much and followed his wanderings so often that I now classed him as a furry friend. At the time, I was camping in the foot-hills of the Rocky Mountains, tramping up and down their picturesquely wooded slopes and studying the lives and habits of various wild animals that inhabited that region. The grizzly was loafing, plainly there was not a thing he had to do and he was uncertain what he would do next. For minutes he simply stood. Then he sat to watch the mound-building of a near-by gopher. From this he turned, reared up against a tree and bit out a piece of bark. He bit easily on this, held it a few seconds, then dropped it. A porcupine started lumbering across the clearing. The grizzly took three or four steps forward and sat down again to watch this awkward, low-geared fellow going somewhere. Then he turned, put his fore paws high against a tree, stretched and started lazily across the opening after the porcupine. A lively autumn wind was blowing. A cone from a pine tree up the wooded slope bounded into view. The grizzly walked to the cone, put his left fore paw lightly upon it and rolled it gently about beneath his paw; then he repeated the performance with his right paw. He then gave a little juggling exhibition. Scooping the cone between his forepaws, he quickly rolled over on his back and with paws in the air he rocked from side to side knocking the cone from one paw to the other. The cone dropped and he leaped after it as though it were the only one in the forest. He stood on his hind legs, reaching high in the air with the cone between his paws and looked at it intently. Then, tilting his head, he held it close to one eye as though examining it with a glass. Taking the cone in his teeth he tossed it into the air with a twitch of his head. Suddenly he woke up. he acted. There was something definite in his mind. Retrieving the cone he went off into the woods, walking slowly and with dignity, to all appearances like a big puppy going off to bury his first bone. Most wild animals belong to the leisure class. They have time on their hands. They work a little, but make a living easily and spend most of their hours loafing, playing, and wandering. This was an old grizzly, wandering and playing in his own territory, in the locality in which he had lived for years. Two or three hours each day gave him all the food he could eat and the remainder of the time must be spent somehow, somewhere. The preceding day he had walked fifteen or twenty miles through his territory. He had gone slowly with no apparent purpose. He stopped for barely an hour to bathe and splash about in a beaver pond. He came out of the pond and rubbed and rolled about on the grass to dry himself. Then he made a cartwheel down a slope, turned a somersault, and suddenly sat down, dog-like, to watch a beaver repair his house. Making a living required but little of the bear’s time. The territory he occupied was better supplied with bear food than most regions in which bears live. The grizzly is resourceful, he rarely tires of his own company and lives practically alone. He makes cartwheels, turns somer- fortyTHE ARETE saults, stands on his head, and does other stunts with enthusiasm. He is full of curiosity and when he sees a neighboring animal doing something new, or several animals at play, he at once gives full attention. This autumn he was a trifle listless, but this is rare. There was an abundance of bear food, and he was going to use the same safe den in which to hibernate as he had used the preceding winter. There was little to do. No grizzlies were invading his territory. He was fat and ready to hibernate. It was one of the occasions when time, for a little while, appeared to hang heavily upon him. The grizzly is the aristocratic gentleman of leisure among the denizens of the wilderness. One-third of the year he hibernates, the remaining two-thirds is for the most part given over to play, to walking about well groomed, borrowing no trouble, for the grizzly will never attack unless attacked or driven by anger or hunger. Like a pioneer, he impresses one as being capable and ready for anything, anytime. This grizzly ranged over several square miles of territory, which included the valley where I camped. Within this large territory were numerous other species of animals,—bighorn, deer, black bear, mountain lion, coyote, beaver, and others, which also lived a life of leisure. While watching the bear splash about in a pond, I discovered a mountain lion across the pond. For several minutes he stood enjoying the pranks of the bear. He ranged over the same territory as the grizzly and had a den on the slopes of Mt. Meeker. For a short time this month the bear enjoyed a special entertainment nearly every day. Each morning about eight o’clock he came out of his den in the rocks and lay down in the sunshine. He lay on a ledge at the top of the ridge and watched two eager prospectors who were working in the gulch below. Quickly he eyed them as they came up the trail from their cabin and his eyes lazily followed them as they went home in the evening. Although this observation was made in one locality, other animals in different localities live practically the same. It is typical of the manner and custom of wild animals everywhere. The normal life of wild animals is largely one of recreation and leisure time rightfully used. Thus they always keep themselves efficient, prepared for exacting emergencies. 8 §■ 0! teacher, dear teacher, Rise up and hear the clocks; Rise up—for you the alarm is set— For you it ticks and tocks; The class is here,—you’re late I fear, Though tardy tasks you levy, Rise up, my lord, and mount your Ford, E’en though last night was heavy: 'Tis sleep! sleep! sleep!

Has he ever on a cold night in winter, when the walls were groaning under the whistling wind outside,' tucked himself in a warm bed situated in a warm room, and read a story warm with feeling and adventure. I do not believe he has, or if he has, he dislikes reading, and therefore does not obtain pleasure from reading in any manner. Lying in bed, every muscle relaxed, the pleasure of reading is increased, as much as the interest of a good story is increased by good illustrating. Of all the stories I have read, about one-third of them were read in bed, and only once I had cause for regret. At the time, my mother was the owner of a store and I had obtained a number of dime novels of the paper-cover variety. As I was looking these over, I became interested in the exciting beginning of one called “The Fearless Ranger or the Minister of the Plains.” Against my mother’s wishes, I resolved to read this book. It was my habit, at that time to eat crackers while reading and that night was no exception. I stacked the crackers on a stand beside me, jumped into bed, and while munching crackers, proceeded to the “Fearless Ranger.” The story, I suppose, could be told by the speed at which I chewed the crackers. And oh! what a story it was! More redskins bit the dust in that novel than there are Indians in the country; and as to the Ranger’s being fearless— why, ask the Indians! After finishing the story, I fell into that kind of slumber when one is half awake and half asleep. All night, from all corners of the room, little redskins shot arrows at me, and one little demon stood in the air above me and, as a boy does “high heights” in marbles, dropped arrows at my nose. When I awoke the next morning, I felt as much like getting up as one of the redskins did after a tussle with the Ranger, and after removing all the cracker crumbs from the bed, I jumped in and slept all that day. 3 $• %, CAR FARE CHARGED BY WEIGHT The car was already filled when a very stout but affable gentleman pushed in and sat down, or rather squeezed in part of his ample proportions, falling on a very thin and rather sour-looking man on his right. The latter glared at him. “They ought to charge by weight in these cars,” he growled. “In which case,” was the genial response, “It wouldn’t be worth while stopping to pick you up.” Cottonfield overseer: “Say, Sambo, what makes your nose flat?” Sambo: “I don’t know boss, but I s’pect it’s to keep me from stick- ing it into other people’s business.” NOT ON YOUR LIFE Master—Look here, Jenkins, I’ll bet you’ve been at my whiskey again.

When the senior class of ’23 announced to the student body their plans for collecting §500 as a financial foundation for their publication, they placed an implicit trust in the integrity of each pupil. Nor was this faith in vain. By a systematic campaign lasting for ten weeks, regular instalments were collected by the senior committee. The school spirit of Aquinas has as a direct result a 100% subscription for our senior annual. We of the senior class extend to the faculty and students our sincere thanks and heartfelt gratitude for their earnest co-operation. HISTORY FACTS LITTLE KNOWN King Tut never used a typewriter.

Starting off with the smallest and lightest aggregation of players ever to sport the Maroon and White, Aquinas made an auspicious beginning. The team won nine consecutive victories before losing a forfeited 2 to 0 game at Geneseo, and among those nine victims was Geneva High School, the team which defeated East High School 35 to 30. Geneva came to our court in January and our boys sent them home on the short end of a 44 to 22 score. Shortly after came the St. Mary’s Academy team of Ogdensburg. This alignment of court performers had, the year before, defeated Catholic High at Glens Falls, N. Y., in the Northern New York-New England Tournament, eliminating us thereby. We showed St. Mary’s the best brand of basketball we possessed and secured sweet revenge by trimming them almost as badly as the Passaic “Wonder High School Team” had done a week before. A Popular Team Possessed of great speed and aggressiveness, Aquinas became a popular quint, at home and abroad. In Buffalo it drew for Canisius Prep one of the biggest crowds ever to attend a game in that city. The Christian Brothers’ Academy team of Syracuse was forced to transfer its game with us from its own court to a larger hall because of the excessive demands for seats. Packed houses greeted us in Geneseo, North Tonawanda and Canandaigua and everywhere save Geneseo, Aquinas created favorable impressions. At Geneseo it was not our fault. The clean method of play employed by Aquinas received the unstinted praise of public and press in Rochester, and still better was the generous attitude of our student body toward visiting teams. Not once during the season did a team leave Cathedral Hall without lauding the good sportsmanship of Aquinas spectators. Lafayette High, of Buffalo Canisius Prep and C. B. A. of Syracuse stated that never had they received such excellent treatment by a body of “home rooters”. It is a splendid tribute to our school and to everyone of our boys. We finished the longest and hardest schedule of games ever attempted by a Catholic High basketball quint with a record of fifteen victories and six defeats. Two defeats were by one point, at Canandaigua and at Syracuse. One game, the Geneseo debacle, by two points. C. B. A. defeated us by three points, and the Cathedral Alumni won by four points. Lafayette High of Buffalo handed us our worst defeat, 25 to 18, and Lafayette's seven point victory was registered over us right on our own court. Lafayette had a great team and the players were a splendid lot of chaps. FIVE REGULAR ALL SCHOLASTIC Proclaiming Aquinas one of the best scholastic teams in New York State, the Rochester Sporting Editors, at the end of the season, selected Captain Leo Sullivan, Thomas Mason, and Victor Carr for places on the first Mythical All Scholastic Honor Team of Rochester, and Mortimer Leary and James I)unn for positions on the second team. Quite a feather in the caps of the five Aquinas Regulars!

We were fortunate that in Arthur Hohman and Timothy Sullivan we possessed two leaders for cheers who are in no little measure responsible for the praise accorded us for the wholesome manner in which the Aquinas basketball team was urged on to victory by its supporters last winter. Persons visiting our hall for the first time were strongly impressed by the spirit displayed there. The student body at all times was chuck full of enthusiasm and it rooted hard for the team to win. That spirit and enthusiasm invariably inspired the members of the team to victory, and Hohman and Sullivan, being good leaders, were responsible for the organized “noise” that often threatened to lift the roof from the hall. Because of their excellent work as directors df “our rooters”, the best compliment we can pay them is to insert their photos on the page with the team itself. Being so instrumental in the success of the team, that honor is unselfishly given them by the Committee in charge of Sports Publicity for the Arete. Middaugh Good Manager While palms are being passed out, we might dwell briefly upon the efficient manner in which the business details of the team were handled. Harry Middaugh, as manager of the team, deserves a lot of praise for his good work. Harry worked diligently throughout the season and played a big part in the successes we experienced. A manager’s work often goes unnoticed because the labor of the job keeps the individual out of the limelight; but a good manager—and Harry was an excellent one—has to work long and hard to establish and accomplish the results attained by us. President John McGraw, of the Students’ Association, and his many assistants, ticket sellers and takers, ushers, and door-men, are also worthy of the hearty comment the Arete makes regarding them. The handling of the crowds which often jammed into our hall is a difficult undertaking, yet not once during the season was there any criticism of the manner in which the hall work was handled. §. §, I922===£lje Aquinas' l rscrbes=== 1923 The Aquinas Reserves are deserving of a goodly amount of credit for the manner in which the Regular basketball team traveled during the 1922-1923 season. The Reserve team, it must be remembered, is the “trial horse” for the Regulars, playing them constantly during the season to keep the latter in the prime of condition. Furthermore, the Reserves’ lineup is continually open to revision for the reason that from time to time the Regs have to enlist a player or two from the Reserves to bolster them up in case sickness or injury takes a man out of the lineup. During the past season it was necessary on several occasions to shake up the Reserves at the last minute because some member of the quint had to be available to the call of the first team. This necessarily was a hindrance to the progress of the Reserves in the playing of their own schedule, but despite the handicap, the team won ten of fifteen games. The Reserves have one or two players who will make strong bids for places on the first team next year.

Wiles and Ed. Geen saw a little service with the first team during the 1922-23 season and each played an excellent brand of ball when called upon to go into a game. The habit of making mistakes is frequently cured by getting the wrong bottle out of the medicine chest. $, $ Another good way to learn how to think fast on your feet is to be a basketball player. •$ 8 8 An ardent progressive is a man who has grown weary of watching somebody else hold the reins. ♦ ♦ ♦ The penalty of selfishness is to be left solitary. 8- 8 8 The difference between a bad habit and a garden is that the former insists upon growing. 8 8 8- Ct)f JDibiaba (Club The spirit that you will experience after having read the “Didiada Song" and perhaps even hummed it, is the spirit that the Didiada Club has spread over the entire hall on those unforgetable “basketball nights"—a spirit of effervescent hilarity, of staunch, unalterable loyalty to the team, and of sincere love for the school. Few indeed, were there, who were not raised to a high pitch of enthusiasm by its triumphant w’ords, and who did not wish themselves in the midst of the fray, to help carry the ball to “our basket”, and to repel the persistence of our opponents. Joe O’Brien chose his words well, and the Club did their work equally well, with the inevitable result of an enthusiastic house, a courageous team and—success! ninety-three256 ALLEN STREET For Stewart - Warner and Van Sicklen Speedometer Service — SEE US — Stewart-Warner Products Service Station, F.

So many of the “frosh” wanted to take up the sport that it was necessary to organize two leagues of six teams each. The teams were graded according to the size of the players, one organization being known as the Freshmen Senior League and the other the Freshmen Junior League. Every class-room was represented therefore by a team in each League, and the rivalry among the student supporters of the different quints was keen. In the Senior Division the championship honors went to Sister Brendan’s Room, while Sister Dominic’s boys won the title in the Junior League. Each of the winners won eight games and were undefeated. After the close of the season the Junior League champs played the Senior team from Sister Dominic’s Room and to the credit of the little fellows it must be said that they won from the larger boys 30 to 28 in a stubborn battle. Harry Marx was captain of Sister Brendan’s pennant winners, and Tommy Conley was floor leader for Sister Dominic’s champs. jHatliematics 'Round about the caldron go, In the poisoned matter then throw Hyperbolas, cycloids, and sissoids, l eminscatas, ellipses, and conchoids, Rulers, compasses, all their riches— Circles, lines, and add the witches For a charm of powerful trouble Is the Math’matics caldron bubble. s $ s Red Mason (After our coach had told of his experiences during the war) : “Were you cool in the battle?” Mac: “Cool!

Opening the season against Spencerport with a 12 to 2 victory, it defeated Fairport High. 7 to 3 and Holly High, 21 to 1, before receiving its first defeat at the hands of Fairport High. 5 to 3, in a return game. Following the Fairport contest, Aquinas won a fast game from Canandaigua Academy, 6 to 2. The ball team rounded into a well balanced outfield in a short time despite the fact that the entire infield and outfield were made up of youngsters who were playing their first year as high school players. We were fortunate in having two good batteries, composed of veterans, around which the rest of the team was built. Captain Mort Leary, who shut Spencerport out without a run or hit, baffled the heavy hitting Fairporters in the first game, but lost the second encounter when the Aquinas defense cracked. Jimmy Dunn pitched us to victories over Holley High School and Canandaigua Academy. Against Canandaigua Dunn allowed but three scattered hits. Like the Aquinas team, the nine was aggressive and speedy. At bat the team averaged .361 for the five games mentioned here, and stole 34 bases. It was especially strong on the defense. one hundred one Union Oil Works | George White TAILOR 99 STATE STREET Telephone : Main 5019 Ladies Suits Pressed Shea’s Tailor Shop 81 Main East Dry Cleaning—Repairing Rubber Garments Repaired Say it with Flowers Lane Bros., Florists 7 Owen St. Main 3556 We Deliver Frank H.
