0 OW that our days at Aquinas are fast drawing to a X
close, we of the class of 1928 may look back with
QU satisfaction and recall cherished memories of our
f 2 K high school career. How well we remember the
EJB Q pf September morning of 1924 when we entered upon
0 R, ' QU that new' field of activity, our high school life, at the
' St. Boniface annex l, It was quite a change and it
0 E954 took some of us considerable time and the exercise
f of remarkable patience on the part of our teachers ,
.1 EAQQQ- 1. to accustom ourselves to the routine of this higher Q
' ' ' field of education. But under the persevering tute- Q
lage of Father Wurzer, the representative of Father C'
Napier at the annex, we completed a successful Freshman year. .
The following September we returned as Sophomores to a new
0 school, a monument to Catholic education, of which we can well be ,
. proud. The whole school was united now and ready to continue ,Z
its good work guided by the new president, Father Byrne. We
were able now to obtain a better view of real high school life. We
came into contact with Seniors, Juniors and Freshmen toog saw fr
their outlook on school lifeg realized that we were members of a U
large family and endeavored to prove ourselves worthy of the
0 school. June brought the roses and half of our high school days
came to an end. U
2 The next term we returned with the realization that we had
a definite goal to work for and so did not lack the determination to
seek it. Gone now were the frivolities which might have char- Sl
acterized our freshman and sophomore yearsg graduation, though
some distance off, seemed ever nearer and all our thoughts were
centered in that one ambition. The newness of the school was
worn off and we went about with an air of confidence befitting our
position, second only to the Seniors whom we looked upon as the
- most fortunate individuals in the school. Oh, to be a Senior and 5
' enjoy all the privileges and opportunities of the senior year!
0 But now time and patient endeavor have made us Seniors
and all too quickly. We at last hold the position we so desired, H
' and the ambition we labored four years to attain is finally realized.
0 Nor are we too happy to bring our high school careers to a closeg
perhaps we were a trifie anxious and hasty in longing for that
0 which we have attained. Now, as never before, do we realize what
it means to sever ties of friendship and to leave, perhaps forever,
T friends who have sacrificed all that life holds to dedicate themselves
to our betterment. Happy, yes, but tempered with silent sadness
we take our leave of the true companions of our youth. Shall We
possibly find, in after life, associations and inspiration to equal
those derived at our Alma Mater? Nevertheless, looking back over
our accomplishments, we all have the consolation of knowing that -
the four years spent in attaining the goal of our ambition were the
0 best years of our lives, and in spending these years at Aquinas we
have gained a knowledge of matters both spiritual and temporal 1
f' that will stand us in good stead, no matter what our vocations in 'T
life may be. RAY SOMMERS.

We have been together
Four long, happy yearsg
We often shook the building
With our laughter and our cheers.
Now when we are leaving,
Days are all too fewg '
And we find our hearts grow heavy
As we hid farewell to you.
Rare days, school days,
Speeding swiftly by,
We grasp their fleeting moments
As forever on they fly.
We leave youth behind us
To take a step that's newg
We wonder what is coming
As we bid farewell to you.
We have formed affections,
Friendships fond and trueg
Mem'ries will go with us
That are not dull nor few.
Teachers often jugged usg
Their purpose well we knew
And we heartily forgive them
As we bid farewell to you.
What the future brings us
Seems unimportant now.
To our haunt of golden mem'ries
Fidelity we vow.
May Alma Mater miss us!
We shall miss her too.
We regret the chaptefs ended
And we bid farewell to you.

ANDREWS, GEORGE E. 240 Mulberry Street
"ANDY" St. Ma1'y's School
Behold Andy! He is one of our versatile
classmates who manages to keep his accom-
plishments in the background. His radiant
and jovial smile hides a wealth of knowl-
edge. As president of the Aquinas Chemical
Association, Andy is celebrated among his
friends for the noxious concoctions which
leak from his private laboratory to seek the
final test in the torture of some hapless
victim. Rumor has it that George has a
penchant for outdoor sport, nay, that he
has attained local recognition as a pitcher.
Success to you, Andy, in whatever you
BERG, HIRAM M. 608 Clifford Avenue
"HI" St. Michael's School
One of the flashes of Father Grady's
Church History Class. He sparkles most
when the bell rings to end the period. Al-
though one of the quietest of the Senior
Class, "Hi" makes his presence known in
all his classes. He claims to know all the
French idioms in the manual, and has the
State Department seriously considering
placing French IV on the high school cate-
gory. A lo bonne heure, Hi!
BRAYER, EDWARD F. 489 Flint Street
"ED" St. Monica's School
Ed. is a prominent member of the Liter-
ary Committee of the Areteg this gives one
an inkling of his ability. Ed. is a conscien-
tious and hard working student and, fur-
thermore, he is a good example of the dig-
nified senior. Do not misinterpret this state-
ment--his dignity has limits. Ed. is an all-
around good fellow and a worthy addition
to any senior class.
BURNS, THOMAS A. 312 Conkey Avenue
"TOM" St. Bridgefs School
The flashy guard of our basketball team
needs no introduction. Who can forget
Tom's playing, which won for us the C. B.
A. game? He is a member of the "A" Club
and everybody's friend, always ready with
a cheery smile and a happy "Hello." Just
as he forged ahead in sports, so de we ex-
pect him to make good in whatever he elects
as his life's work. So long, Tom!

CORCORAN, WALTER J. 121 Campbell Park
"WALT" Holy Apostles' School
Here he comes, head up, chest out, eyes
sparkling, and lips parted in that conta-
gious smileg he's our Walt. As a member of
the Business Committee it was his duty to
solicit "ads" for the Arete. He did-and
howl His school spirit is catching, his en-
thusiasm gripping and, when he leaves, we
are going to be sorry. All we ask, Walt, is
that you remember us when you are the
Governor of the Empire State.
COSTICH, KENNETH J. 1633 Culver Road
"SPIKE" Corpus Christi School
Trying to catch Ken in a pensive or a
serious mood would prove as difficult as
trying to teach a butterfly geology. It is
doubtful if this gentleman was ever found
napping in any class, though he invariably
unloads his convivial spirit of its latest
raillery before reciting. Ken, as the up and
coming scientist, leaves our school with a
record of four years of math. Next year's
lords will be hard put to find a match for
this enlightened youth.
CULKIN, ANTHONY J. 341 Laburnum Cres't
"RED" Blessed Sacrament School
Red has been with us from our start at
the Saint Boniface annex and can boast
that he is everybody's friend. Active in
every school movement, he always proves a
real pal. He was one of the cast in the
senior play and is a member of the select
Virgil class. Good luck, Culkin! We expect
to meet you, in the not far off future, in
DELAIRE, GERARD V. 44 Burrows Street
"JERRY" Cathedral Grammar School
Jerry never pushes himself forward, yet
he is one of the popular members of the
senior class. He was also voted quite popu-
lar by the fair patrons of our basketball
games, at which he served as usher. One
of his noteworthy claims is that he is a
Virgil student, and we believe that anyone
capable of studying this subject is quite
able to face life and its battles. Au revoir,

DELEo, EDISON P. 73 Chapin Street
"EDDIE" St. Andv-ew's School
Another member of the Old Guard who
entertains fond hopes of entering Notre
Dame! Eddie makes a striking picture as
he walks along the street, his curly hair
waving in the breeze. Yet, we know that he
is far from being self-conscious and thinks
only of rounding out his career. His marks
show what persistence will do and we have
little doubt that Eddie will "get there."
DIETZ, LEWIS 162 Birr Street
HLOOIEH Brooklyn Prep School, N. Y.
"Looie" has been one of the big noises
in the school since he was elected to stage
his contortionist act in public. Our blond
cheerleader has helped to pull many a close
game out of the tire. With his experience he
should be an aesthetic dancer but he aspires
to a place in the business realms, and We
can vision him as a howling success.
DOWD, LOUIS J. 286 Rutgers Street
UDEWEYH Blessed Sacrament School
Hail! Little Sunbeam, dispeller of gloom,
bringer of good cheer. Louie is all of these
"nize" things and more. He is an accom-
plished jokester, a contortionist par-excel-
lence, and an imitator of no mean ability.
His love of a joke is an index to his heart,
which we all know is where it should be.
Good-by, Looie, and good luck.
DWYER, THOMAS H. 3 Burke Terrace
"TOM" Sacred Heart School
Shadows of Cicero and Julian Eltinge!
Here is the great orator of the class. Here
is the man who has kept the Dramatic Club
alive for three years. Who can forget his
famous impersonation of "Dulcy"? He will
be a "big man" in whatever line he as-
sumes after graduation. When you have
"arrived," Tom, and we are still plodding,
"Think of us sweetly, when alone."

EBERHARD, KENNETH L. 47 Prescott Street
HKENU St. Augustine's School
Here is the big, manly, he-man, the pride
of the "Dolan A. C." and the most sincere
senior in the class. Ken knows his Church
History and thinks he knows his American
History, or vice versa, but it is an estab-
lished fact that he knows his onions. For
who but him could pipe out that loud "here"
in every class or openly meet a girl on the
Dewey Avenue Car after school, and get
away with it? More power to you "Ken!"
ESTERHELD, GEORGE E. 96 Richard Street
"GEORGE" Blessed Sacrament School
Very quiet and retiring about school and
especially in the class room, that's George.
Now that he has reached his senior year,
George can tell a vivid tale of the slavery
and drudgery he experienced in his rise to
the top. He has only one regret: he bemoans
the fact that Lindbergh decided to fly to
Paris before he, George, was old enough.
However, in his flight from these walks to
foreign parts, we wish him good sailing
and no mishaps.
FARRELL,J. GORDON 275 Reynolds Street
UREDH Holy Apostles' School
Gordon is one of those modest, unassum-
ing young men who are so rare to-day.
Whether it is his ruddy locks or his most
becoming blush which has gained for him
the nick-name "Red", we are not sure. He
is our sports editor and to show that he's
been doing his work witness the fact: af-
ter twenty minutes in Syracuse, he had the
fair admirers of C. B. A. rooting for the
old Maroon and White. Keep it up, Gordon,
you're a winner.
FISCHETTE, MICHAEL A. 205 Seneca Pky.
"MIKE" St. Francis Xavier
Whether it was playing three grueling
sets of tennis, or ruining an Underwood in
the guise of typewriting, Mike has been
equal to the occasion. He has a habit of
springing surprises, even to having his
English IV themes ready for Father Grady
at the proper time. Mike says to watch the
surprise he is going to spring in June-
graduation. We're all pulling, Michael, and
may you not disappoint us.

FURLONG, HENRY J. 139 Birr Street
"BUD" Corpus Christi
"Bud" absolutely refuses to be worried
and fails to see the propriety of taking
one's self or the world too seriously. Bud
meets every situation with amused insouci-
ance. His weaknesses are parking, singing
and dancing, and "the one in the middle"
is featured by his rich basso voice.
ability in pantomiming prominent charac-
ters is amazing. Armed with the twin
lances of sociability and perseverance, Bud
is headed for great successes.
GALLAGHER, CLAYTON J. 245 Cypress Street
HCLAYTH St. Boniface School
Here is the popular basketball player
whom many of the fair sex ask for on ap-
proaching the gym. Clayt. has an air of
calmness about the school which he turns
into pep in his work on the court. Although
he worries little over his studies, he has
managed to be our mainstay in the Ameri-
can history class. Go to it, Clayt., and make
history remember you!
GALLAGHER, CLEMENT E. 50 Raines Park
HCLEMH Holy Rosary School
One would never think that this quiet
looking youth could be so versatile, but
Clem. could astound them all by his various
tales. A license is all that keeps our young
racer from continually driving "one of the
fifteen million". He successfully keeps Mr.
McLaughlin on the defense with questions
concerning unheard of parts of the four
Wheeled contrivance. Be patient Clem., time
will make you eligible!
GANNoN,E1.MER T. 443 Lyell Avenue
"EL" Cathedral Grammar School
Meet the most original member of our
class: "EL" is undoubtedly an imitator of
the first rankg and, as a source of enter-
tainment, he is without a rival. When he
smiles or begins one of his eccentric per-
formances, this bashful youth always pro-
vokes an uproar. Along with being an
original performer, Gannon is a brilliant
student and ranks high in his school work.
He has made a host of friends not alone
because of his likeable qualities but also
because of his sincere good fellowship.

GO0DWIN,JOHN B. 277 West Elm Street,
"JOHN" East Rochester
Every morning John may be seen sliding
over the miles between the secluded town
of East Rochester and our own fair city,
behind the wheel of a Nash-can. At home
this industrious young businessman spends
much of his time inducing the denizens to
patronize these noble road demons and at
school he spends all of his spare moments
convincing others of their worth. If the
fellows only had enough "jack," all the
seniors would be driving Nash cars. Stick
to it, John, and soon you'll turn the whole
GRATTAN,JOI-IN P. 177 Alameda Street
"JACK" Sacred Heart School
Gaze upon the shining light of the Eccle-
siastical history class! John's prolonged at-
tack of sleeping sickness has proved a con-
stant worry to our principal. Nevertheless,
the lad means well. He is a spirited backer
of all school activities and, whenever the
occasion demands, lends a whole-hearted
support. Jack's experience as a drug clerk
and his love of chemistry have determined
his career. We soon shall read his name
among those of our pharmacist patrons in
the Arete's advertising section.
GRIFFIN, J oHN J. 59 Cameron Street
"JACK" Holy Apostles' School
Griffin is one of those quiet and modest
boys, seen but not heard. This does not
lessen his popularity nor lower his scholar-
ship. He is a basketball star of no mean
ability and as for baseball, we refer you to
the A. I. R. team of which he is a member.
We congratulate the R. B. I. on its prospec-
tive pupil and venture to predict big things
for our southpaw.
GULLEN, MARTIN T. 104 Seward Street
"MART" Immaculate Conception
We here introduce "Mart," the distin-
guished connisseur of antique automobiles.
It is rumored that his dashing appearance
behind the wheel of a pre-war Ford has
broken many a fair heart. Aside from this,
"Mart" is a true friend with a ready smile
and a word of encouragement for all. We
are certain that he will be as successful in
gaining recognition in the world as he has
been in entrenching himself in our hearts.

GUNN, WALTER R. 101 Delmar Street
"BUD" Holy Apostles' School
"Bud" has a clever knack of dodging reci-
tations which he tells us comes to him
naturally. Rumor has it that Mr. Ryan
tried to catch him napping in American
history but, to his surprise, "Bud" turned
the tables. and made a class record by a
perfect recitation. Despite his stature
"Bud" is a staunch supporter of all sports
and roots for the team at every game.
"Great oaks from little acorns grow."
HAFFEY, JAMES E. 610 Grand Avenue
"JIM" Inzm,ac'ulate Conception
You are gazing upon the picture of the
handsomest member of the Class of '28.
This, coupled with his athletic prowess,
makes Jim a very popular youth, and lucky
is the -boy who claims him for his friend.
Jim is very modest and the honors heaped
on him have not hurt him a bit. If his work

As head of the Art Committee, Frank is
responsible for the good work in this book.
He has been drawing his way into popu-
larity all through his scholastic career. He
furnishes us with suitable drawings when-
ever the occasion calls for them. Frank is
ever on the alert to aid a classmate in dis-
tress and this, joined to an unusual refine-
ment of character, makes him a real acqui-
sition to the class of '28.

"OZ" Sacred Heart School
In Elwood, the class possesses the ex-

By his diplomacy and persuasive powers
"Oz" secured the respect and patronage of
the advertising men throughout the city

thank him for the way in which he con-

One of seventy-five or eighty unknown

on all topics: sports, politics, or literature,
without being in the least superficial, has
always made him interesting company in
any group. John's big shortcoming is bas-

Harold is a firm adherent of Julius Cae-

"Hawk" decided to be the sphinx of our

Harold to follow in their tracks. Here's

Tiny, handsome, daring and likeable,

a John Barrymore or John Gilbert role on
a small scale we know where to look. What
Peter lacks in size he makes up in wit and
disposition. No one can phase him by any
sort of question. He always has a witty
answer even if he doesn't know what it's
all about. He even knows why a sheik
crosses the street. Keep up the witty work,
Pete, and some day your name will be seen

to fame is the fact that he did double duty
on the Basketball Team during the season.
He played on the Reserves, and then helped
the Varsity win a few. His scholastic hob-

Harry is a fellow whose popularity is de-

you mean our basketball star, Harry. He's
a human being, and an interesting one. Be-
sides playing' on the team, Harry does other
great things, such as paralyzing the class
with his thrilling oral English recitations,
during which he makes use of three differ-
ent kinds of sign language to convey his
unspoken words. And again, Harry very
often is known to have recited correctly in
American History. What better send off

our comprehension. However, in lieu of all
his other noteworthy achievements, we feel
that we are justified in forgiving him.

Q OUR years have passed since first we crossed this
SL threshhold and became the Freshman class of nine-
Q teen hundred and twenty-four of Aquinas Institute.
3 54. 5 We are now the Senior Class of nineteen hundred
, and twenty-eight, on the eve of graduation. We
5 have run the race-have covered the prescribed
I'.,.,.1,m.-1 course, and now the goal is just ahead. We are
filled with a natural joy at having. achieved success
tggmfwgglngg but with our Joy IS mingled a spirit of sadness, a
v I sadness which overcomes us when we realize that
graduation also means a separation, perhaps for-
ever, from our many friends and associates of those
four happy years.
Those friends were numbered not among the student body
alone, but among the faculty as well. There is one among the
faculty who in a special way has been associated with this Class.
He was the first to greet us and put us at our ease when back in
twenty-four we made our debut in these halls of learning. During
our Freshman year he taught us, advised us and encouraged us.
Upon the arrival of our Sophomore year and our entrance into
the new school he took up his duties as a Prefect. His work neces-
sarily consumed much of his time and prevented the close associa-
tion with us which had been possible the previous year, but his
interest in us was as great as ever. Our Junior year found 'this
interest not in the least diminished but rather was it increased.
During the past year as Seniors we have been the special charges,
and we might say worry, of our friend and benefactor. If our
marks were not as high as they might be, or if we "flunked" an
exam, it caused him much concern, and oftentimes he came to us
to ask the cause of our failure and to advise and encourage us
that we might do better next time.
Now, as the time is near when we are
to be graduated from this school, and when
we must be separated from the friends whom
we have made during our stay here, the
memories of those happy days are brought
very vividly to our mind. In parting, we wish
to express our gratitude to Father Joseph
Wurzer for the interest which he has taken
in us and for the advice, assistance and en-
couragement which during the past four
years he has so unseltishly given to us. We
assure him that within our hearts he will
always hold a place as warm as that which
we are certain he holds for us within his
own. May God generously bestow blessings
upon him and upon his work, so that in the
years to come he may be to other classes
what he has been to us-a dear friend and
counselor. WALTER CORCORAN.

What is this school .spirit ,that seems to be the main topic in
every discussionl Why. is 1t. mentioned so frequently in every issue
pertaining- to school matters? Does it pertain particularly to any
one branch of 'school activity? No! It is the very life and soul of
the school. Iijgis the standard by which a school is measuredg the
factor on which the success of all school undertakings hingeg the
qualitypthat ,changes defeats into victories, work into play, and
makes school life a pleasure.
The mere gaining of knowledge in language, science or math-
ematics is but a small part of the motive for a high school educa-
tion. The real and most' important reason is to teach one to live in
peace and harmony with one's fellow-men. School spirit is the factor
that creates bonds of friendship among the students and makes
their relations with their teachers friendly and pleasant ones. It
comes first and puts aside all personal differences. It makes or
mars the name of any school. .
Real school spirit is something to be proud of. When the home
team is losing and a feeling of gloom hangs over the hall, it is an
inspiring sound to hear the loyal supporters cheer with all their
might. That is real school spirit.
But, there is another field i which this spirit should be equally
displayed. This other field is the class room. Any one can cheer
at an athletic demonstration, but it takes a man with real spirit to
keep up the standards in scholarship. The boy who is willing to
do his best in the work as Well as the play attached to school life
is a loyal student. He is the type that wins in the great battle of
life for he receives the full benefit of a higher education.

I dreamed of fragrant roses
Around a cozy little homey
I dreamed of countless care-free' days
In a quiet spot, alone.
I dreamed of snow white lilies
Of columbine and rueg
Of hyacinths and violets,
Fragrant with evening dew.
I fancied many idle hours
.Beside a peaceful stream,
Where I listened to the whispering breeze
And wondered what it could mean.
My dreaming days are ended.
I can dream, alas, no more.

"More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams
of" is a truth which is realized time and again by every fervent
Catholic who possesses a love for prayer and an intense admiration
for that means by which we converse with Our Creator, God, Who,
in His infinite wisdom, knowing that we, helpless beings, would
need other means of gaining His Grace besides the Sacraments,
instituted prayer. s
Years, yea, centuries have come and gone since then, but
prayer still is the ally of the Sacraments in combating Satan and
his evil forces and in the bringing of God's grace unto us, un-
worthy beings. The history of practically every country of the
world contains countless instances in which prayer proved the

leading factor in the success of one of the contestants, or in the
securing of the desired result. In Germany in the thirteenth cen-
tury, Rudolph of Hapsburg had been raised to the throne. When
he sought to put himself in charge he was resisted by the King of
Bohemia, who would not acknowledge his supremacy. Rudolph
declared war and the two armies met near Ildenspengen. Rudolph's
forces were greatly inferior, but the leader did not fear defeat.
Before entering the battle he prayed earnestly with his men and
he caused a hymn to the Blessed Virgin to be sung. Then with
the battle cry of "Jesus" he entered the fight and gained a complete
victory. The case of Francis I of Austria was similar in all re-
spects. His prayers with those of his men helped to bring about
the downfall of Napoleon when that great leader was at the peak
of his career. One might write countless volumes concerning the
aid of prayer in military encounters but other things are to be
Prayer has often been the means of causing a hardened sinner
to repent. Often people have strayed from the fold so long that it
seemed easier to remain outside than to reenter. Having reached
this stage, no effort is made by themselves and it is only the
prayer of some loved one that finally causes them to see the light
and once more return to the friendship of God. Then too what is
it that causes the ranks of Catholicity to be increased every year by
thousands of converts? Is it not prayer that gives the mission-
aries in India, Japan and China the strength to carry on? Is it
not prayer that gives them the courage to go into the wild, desolate
countries, seek out the natives and convert them from their savage
state into civilized christians?
Oh then why is it that some of us do not realize all these things
but go on day after day without any thought of prayer, without
any thought of asking God to help us solve our difficulties and,
having seen all the wonders which prayer has the power to bring
about, why do we not resolve to pray always with the hope that
God will smile upon us and make our life a better and a happier

There's a place we'll soon be leaving,
Although our hearts are grieving,
And the years we've spent together
Will be but memories.
We shall miss our Alma Mater,
And a wish we'll often falter
To be back within the portals
Of the school we fondly love.
For the dear old school we're hoping
That she'll miss us a wee bit,
As in future years we're groping
To find a place like it.
And though we can't stay near her,
With a lusty shout we cheer her,
To our hearts there's nothing dearer
Than the school we're leaving now.

TIIE REVEREND WILLIAM BYRNE, PII. D.
On the afternoon of January fourth, at a special assembly,
Bishop Hickey announced to the student body of Aquinas Institute
that he had appointed our principal, the Reverend William Bryne,
as Rector of the Immaculate Conception parish in Ithaca. The an-
nouncement came as a complete surprise to the students, who
learned of the departure of Father Byrne with the deepest feeling
of regret. Father Byrne had held the presidency at Aquinas for
the entire period following the removal from its old location to the
fine, new building on Dewey Avenue which now bears the name. In
that time he rendered inestimable service to hundreds of Catholic
boys of Rochester and vicinity.
The attitude of Aquinas toward Father Byrne is its highest
tribute to him. He held the respect of the student body at large,
and no boy can respect a man he can not or will not love. The boys
who attended Aquinas while he was in charge owe Father Byrne
a debt which can never be paid to him. Every student who knew
him, and came under his supervision, will bear Father Byrne's
memory in his heart as long as he is able to think back to the old
school days. Farewell, Father Bryne, and may God bless you!

The Senior Class has worked arduously in the interests of the
Freshmen classes which will enter the hallowed precincts of
Aquinas in the years to come. These children will enjoy the fol-
lowing advantages at the suggestion of said class:
High stools placed in the dining hall so as to enable the Frosh
to eat from the tables without having to stand on the chairs.
Platforms placed around the drinking fountains so as to enable
the above mentioned children to secure a drink, if thirsty.
Mats placed on floors to prevent injury in case of falling in
getting down from seat.
Door knobs placed lower so as to enable them to open doors
Without the assistance of teacher.
Chalk reduced both in length and diameter so as to allow
pupil to work at the blackboard.
A delivery truck to carry "Literature and Life" books home
in case the book is needed for home work.
Freshmen students will be required to wear a tag giving full
information as to destination so that the conductor will make no
mistake in letting them off the car.
During roll call teachers of Freshmen home rooms are re-
quested to walk up and down the aisles and make a personal in-
spection of each seat so as to eliminate the danger of pupils' being
marked absent when present.

I remember, I remember,
On a bright September morng
I was a little freshman then
Whom older youths did scorn.
On Gregory Street we took our stand
Nor were we very sad,
Because it was on Frank Street
That the older men did land.
I remember, I remember,
The class rooms, dark and gray,
The fountain where we quenched our thirst
N igh drenched us with its sprayg
The lunch room where at twelve o'clock
Upon the boards and planks
We tried in vain to eat our lunch
Amid our childish pranks.
I remember, I remeber,
The alley where we played.
We never yearned for acres,
We never once complained.
Our spirit was of high school sort
To which all ages bow.
For we were the "Fighting Irish" theng
That is just what we are now.
I remember, I remember,
The lessons long and tough.
I thought the teachers did not know
When we had had enough.
This was a Freshie's ignorance,
'Tis now a consolation
To know that daily routine grind
Has won us graduation.

To the annex out on Gregory Street
Some bright faced youngsters came.
They started in as Freshmen
Unknown to care or fame.
What little joy they met with
To cheer them on their way
Was counteracted by the math
Which they plugged at night and day.
Algebra in all its forms,
Geometry and trig,
Four years of mathematics!
O, boy, how they did dig!
At last, with faces wrinkled,
With shoulders bent-with age,
Each leaves his Alma Mater,
Knowledge crammed-a sage.

On February 7th, the senior class upheld a tradition which is
as old as the school itself-by holding a Senior Banquet. The
banquet was held in the new Knights of Columbus Building and
claims the distinction of being the first banquet to be held in that
building. The affair was in charge of a committee composed of
Francis Norton, chairman, Martin Gullen and Harry Kendall. They
were ably assisted by that genial chairman-at-large, Bob Metzger.
After an agreeable repast, the class president, who, as usual,
presided, called the diners to order and announced that speeches
were in order. As a sort of stimulant, Father Keefe spoke. He
was followed by Mort Leary, who in turn gave way to Father Ball.
That benign gentleman had the audacity to suggest that the stu-
dents be called upon to speak. After Father Brien spoke Cduring
which speech he did not even mention tardiness, to the surprise of
alll, the toastmaster called upon Emmet O'Brien for a short
speech. After delicately satirizing one of the previous speakers,
Emmet mumbled an excuse about forgetting a prepared speech, and
sat down, to the relief of all. Fearful lest the honor of his class
should fall, the master of ceremonies quickly summoned Mr. Ma-
succi and Mr. Rock to his aid, and they responded most nobly.
Father Grady closed the evening with a few choice words and
The remarkable co-operation of the class towards the success
of the venture was emphasized by the kindness of Mr. Dwyer in
furnishing his orchestra for the evening. The orchestra featured
Mr. Jack Strowger, a dancer par-excellence, and Mr. Philip Dwyer,
a harmonica player who played himself into the hearts of even the
hard-hearted seniors. Very good for a freshman!

As grave and reverend seniors now, we gaze upon years past.
We have spent the time together, we have struggled side by side,
Gone is the bond that held us, to his own way each must bide.

We'll live again the happy days, the days so gaily passed.

5. .5 One never quite knows just what is coming next and
'51 what it is going to bring with it. It is true that
some people are more inclined to pessimism than
3 others and that the optimist is quite prevalent, but,
nevertheless, both types have their changing moods.
This world in which we live is a thing as full
of moods as the average person. In the summer we
may say that it is optimistic. It is continually full of sunshine and
joy. Still, a sunshiny day may suddenly darken and a storm of
rain and thunder spoil the brightest outlook. But-as in the case
of the optimistic person-the sunshine soon comes again, with the
rainbow as a covenant of the peace which has been broken by the
storm. The summer, with its beauty is, however, the time of the
year which can best be compared to the habitually joyful person.
Storms may come but they soon pass.
Then as the days grow shorter, comes the time of the year
which betokens the pessimist. A continual gloom seems to be in
the air. Late October days are the most beautiful of the year.
provided we have sunshine to accompany and brighten them, but
such days are "few and far between" and the time intervening is
suffocated in gloom.
With winter comes the season which can best be compared to
the man of quick temper. He is ordinarily the happiest person in
the world. His days are filled with fung just as the days of the
Winter months, though short, are filled with glittering snow when
the sky clears and the sun shines. But then comes the storm! This
is one of the most fearsome things that God has ever created. It
kills the light of human charity and kindness, just as a snowstorm
or blizzard darkens the sky and shuts out the union of the people
of one household with the people of another. Again, however, comes
the sunshine after the storm. Peace is declared and the days seem
to be more blinding in their brilliance than ever before.
Thus it is with man. His moods are always varying as the
seasons of the year and the days of the seasons. He is ever differ-
ent. This shows that man is not constant. He is fickle, changingg
he is human.

The one to whom a boy invariably turns in time of trouble is
his mother. She is the one who always seems to understand, to
sympathize, and to share the burden of our care. Throughout the
battle of life, her presence is a source of inspiration and of courage.
How many of us think of our spiritual Mother in time of trial?
Yes, truly is Mary our Mother, and most certainly does she possess
all those qualities which lend so distinctive a charm to our natural
mothers. Most of us, however, are slow in seeking her aid when
in sore need. And what an aid she is! Think of it! The Mother of
God is ever anxious that we ask her to intercede for us at the
throne of her Divine Son! Would we refuse any request which it
lies in our power to grant to our mothers? Would He, Who at
Mary's request anticipated the time of His first miracle, refuse
her request in our cause?
Let us, on leaving the school where we have been taught to
confide in our Blessed Mother, resolve to take to Mary our every
trouble, confident that with her assistance all things will be well.
As a parting thought, I would repeat the assuring words so often
quoted to us:
Mary is God's Mother, therefore she can help us.
Mary is our Mother, therefore she will help us.

Often I think of the dear old hall
Where we spent our freshman yearg
Often I stop and attempt to recall
My comrades, my teachers, the building and all
My hopes, my joys, my fears.
I remember the building, shabby and red,
With the dreary rooms therein,
The staircases creaky with well-worn treads
Which reechoed as o'er them our young feet sped
In our hurry out or in.
I remember the clock in its tower on high
How it sounded each quarter hour,
While over our lessons we fretted and sighed
Most earnestly as the exams drew nigh
That success might at last be ours.
And now, when I pass by that hallowed spot,
The home of our freshman class,
I behold there naught but a vacant lot
And believe me or believe me not,
I sigh for those happy days passed.

There is a place to which the mind of any member of the
graduating class of 1928 will inevitably revert as he muses on
the days of his high school career. It is the place where he was
introduced to high school life, where he underwent the change that
transformed him from childhood to young manhood, where he was
brought to a realization of the part he would play in life, where he
began to dispense with his youthful frivolities and take up the
more serious pursuits in the field of education.
Often there surges through the memory of our senior class
the picture of an old red school house with its steps and stairways
worn to almost a curve through carrying the innumerable footsteps
of pupils throughout the many years of the school's existence, and
its classrooms, you might say "old and gray," which have echoed
the recitations of bright-eyed pupils, themselves now old and gray.
Who of this class will ever forget the cafeteria with its almost
primitive tables and benches?-or the old gas lights which were
called into use on dark days ?,-or our biology "lab" which could
be carried to class by the teachers? How well we remember the
First Friday Communions and the noon-time visits in the church
next door! Most of us remember the candy store on the corner
where we obtained that article of food so necessary in every boy's
life and where we left not a few of our pennies.
Shedding his radiance over this whole scene, was our good
friend, Father Boppel, always understanding, always kind and con-
This is a feeble attempt to picture our freshman days at the
St. Boniface annex. Mere words can never duplicate the real pic-
ture which those who actually attended the school have and which
they will ever carry with them as a cherished memory.

God's blessing with you dwellg
When a friend was sorely needed
You served Aquinas well.

Little Robert, nine years old, had just finished reading a
book of fairy tales and was musing over its contents. "What
an old, dull, world we are living in," he exclaimed, "there are no
fairies, no dragons, no magic rings or lamps and everything is just
natural 1" Suddenly Robert sat up, wiped his eyes and gasped-was
this a fairy silently stealing into his room? Sure enough, it was,
and it walked right up to Robert and asked him why he was so
sad. When Robert told her that he was sick and disgusted with the
world, the fairy told him, to his great surprise, that he was living
in a much more wonderful world than she herself was. Robert
laughed and told her to stop joking, but the fairy told him to follow
her and she would convince him. Wondering what it was all about
First the fairy went into the parlor and as it was quite dark
therein, Robert pressed the switch button and lit the light. "What
caused that," asked the fairy wonderingly?
"Oh, I merely lit the light," replied Robert.
"How perfectly amazing," exclaimed the fairy, "all you have to
do is press a button and the room is flooded with light-how won-
derful !" '
Just then the telephone rang and Robert answered it. After
he finished telephoning the fairy asked him why he was speaking
to a rubber object. Robert told her that he had been talking
to a friend of his who lived several miles distant and that the
words were carried by wires. Then when the fairy asked how
wires could carry words, Robert admitted he did not know. "How
wonderful," cried the fairy. But, when Robert placed a round ob-
ject on a fancy polished box, and made the box talk and play music,
the fairy's wonderment knew no bounds. The fairy gasped with
amazement when Robert, by merely turning a numbered dial, lis-
tened to a speech given by an orator several hundred miles away.
And when the fairy asked him how he could, by means of that box,
listen to persons several hundred miles distant, Robert was at a
loss to explain. His eyes were beginning to open and he was be-
ginning to think that after all, this world was a really good place
to live in. Then, as he was thirsty, he went to the sink, turned on
a faucet and immediately water poured forth.
"You even have control of the springs and rivers," cried the
fairy. "When we want a drink we have to journey to some spring,
but you have one in your very home." "Truly, this earth is a won-
Then the fairy disappeared and suddenly Robert sat up on the
sofa. What a realistic dream he had had! However, it had opened
his eyes. He no longer was tired with the world or wished he were
in fairy-land. Now he realized what a perfectly marvelous fairy-
land he was really living in.

ikearb a Maximum
When the class of '28 reached their third year of high school
work, mathematics took a slump as only a very small number
signed up for the class in trig. This condition maintained during
the first semester of the senior year, since the solid geometry class
consisted of but six members, but, quite unexpectedly, affairs math-
ematical took a turn at the beginning of the present semester when
the largest number in the history of Aquinas expressed their de-
sire to take trig and advanced algebra. As a result, five seniors
will have four units in math to their credit and about ten others
will have secured SSW units at the end of this year. The class of
'29 have imbibed our spirit and next September will find a large
group of seniors with the splendid equipment of three and one-
half years of math already secured. KENNETH COSTICH.

To shoot a pheasant or two.
He got up in the earliest dawning.
And into his old clothes he flew.
He got out his trusty old Bertha
And a-loaded her up with nails,
And poured in a pound 'o black powder.
Now-forth to the fields, woods and swales
I saw him returning that evening,
A-swaggering up thru State Street,
With old Bertha over his shoulder,
And a crowd tagging 'long at his feet.
And over his shoulder he carried,
A hen pheasant half shot in twog
A crowg a Rhode Island Red roosterg
And a black and white "pussy cat," too.

ANY miraculous conversions have been made, some
Qk Sv! through this means and others for that reason.
E cfs,-E, Many stories have been told concerning these, some
K l lay renofvned authors, others by stragglers like me.
5 -K 1 5 ut at east I am in earnest in that, as I was im-
it f pressed by the facts of this tale, I should like to
'51 impress you with my story.
My tale begins far up in the northern part of
3 Maine, in a small village where Leo Bunstan lived
with his parents. Leo's mother was a holy woman
and she brought her boy up to love and honor God.
But because she was so good, God called her to Him,
so Leo and his father moved to Boston.
Finding himself in a strange city, where he knew nobody, Leo
was indeed lonesome. Straying about, searching for adventure,
he saw a group of boys playing ball. He wanted to join the game
very much, but he had not the courage to ask the boys if he might.
Suddenly his eyes were attracted and held by a most unusual sight.
There, standing before him, was a boy with a completely black face
and with black hands. Leo had never before seen a colored boy.
His undisguised stare soon caused the colored lad to turn his eyes
upon him. Seeing his longing look, the darkey good-naturedly said
to him, "Come heah, boy, and join ah'r game." Little Leo was
overwhelmed by gratitude at help from this unexpected source, and
searched his pockets frantically for something which would be
suitable as a reward. Choosing from his treasures, as the most
adequate, a medal of the Blessed Virgin, he gravely presented it to
his colored befriender, telling him to always keep it with him.
"Dis am a charm, and ah'l1 have good luck," replied the dark lad,
inspecting the medal critically. The blessed medal was only a
charm to the negro's distorted mind, and a charm indeed it proved
to him. After carrying the medal for some time, his natural curi-
osity outdid him and he began to ask questions about it. Soon, he
learned that it was a Catholic emblem, and his innocent heart
which had warmed to his "charm" now also warmed to Catholics.
In Boston, the colored people have a separate colony of their
own. The houses of this section are not very prepossessing and
one in particular seemed but a ramshackle shell. It was a house
meant originally to be a double house. One-half of it was filled
with old furniture and the doors were barred up, the other half
had a tumble-down porch, the blinds were drawn, and the eaves
had broken off in places and were hanging over the upstair win-
dows by strips of tin. In front of the house stood a crowd of
gaping negroes. As the object of the negroes' attention approached,
they continued to stare, frightenedly, at him. It was a rare occur-
rence for a Catholic priest to penetrate into the habitation of the
darkies. The house had so much the appearance of being deserted
that the priest was undecided where to knock. A sign of life ap-
peared in the house of the closed blinds, and a sobbing old colored
ff:-i1Q?"3 gs. .Q

woman admitted the priest to the room, with the same show of awe
and timidity shown by the crowd without. One glance showed the
priest that he was in the home of typical negro people, struggling
to earn a living. In the far corner, on a cot, lay the purpose of
the priest's visit. Withered by disease, which was hastened to a
climax by lack of proper care, Johnny Chirpes struggled to a sitting
position and viewed the priest eagerly. The priest beheld, nestled
in his hand, a medal of the Blessed Virgin. It is our same negro
of the "charm."
Again we find a crowd of negroes gathered together. This
time it is in front of St. Alphonsus Catholic Church. Were the
scene of the negroes' gathering upon a happier event, the effect
produced by each colored person's attempting some feeble means
of dress-up and mourning would be absolutely ludicrous. However,
one must not have levity at a funeral, and this was indeed a
funeral. Many expressions of sorrow and affection could be heard
among the crowd, as the body of Johnny Chirpes was carried from
the hearse into the church.
It would, in all probability, be vastly amusing if we could see
the fear in some of those negroes' hearts as they entered a Catholic
Church for the first time. The solemnity of the services made an
impression upon these poor friends of Johnny Chirpes that some
will never forget. Many converts to the Church were obtained
through this new field, hitherto unproductive to mission work.
The will of God is the greatest mystery in the world. In this
case Leo Bustan caused a whole colony to hear the word of God
because he gave a "charm9' to a friendly colored boy.
Q B5 35 DONALD Woons, '29.
I gaze upon the crucifix
On the white and spotless wall,
And think of how Christ gave His life,
To save us, one and all.
I see the lines of anguish
On His patient, loving face,
I see the insult He endured.
To win us saving grace.
Amidst the jeering, scoffing mob
On that memorable day
I see Him bear His burden
O'er the rough and hilly way.
I see the sins that men commit,
Force down each cruel nailg
I see the Precious Blood gush forth
And leave Him weak and pale.
I see His loving eyes grown dim
And view the open side.
O Saviour, let me hide therein,
Forever there abide! FRANK J. TRUISI.

As we leave you, dear Aquinas,
We shed a parting tear,
Not a minute spent within your halls
Seemed gloomy, dull, or drear. U
When Freshmen green, four years ago,
We thought we knew a lot,
But time has sternly taught us
That Solomons we are not. P
We were then the youngest of them all, cl
The shrill-voiced, Wondering Froshg
When we returned in '25, W
We were addressed as Sophs. 0
Then our Junior year sped rapidly, I
Be sure we made things hum, U
When September "27 arrived
Seniors we had become. L,
Time journeys on relentlessly,
We gauge our stay by days,
The roses' bloom will bring us E,
To the parting of the Ways.
Yet, ever in our memory, m
Shall Aquinas stand apart, '
Her golden school-day treasures
Locked deep Within our hearts.

It seems to be the custom and the tradition that each year
certain seniors come to school in antiquated cars, not be-
cause they are cheaper or more convenient, but because such
mode of travel upholds the senior dignity.
It is a commonly accepted fact that the possessor of an
aged Ford is the envy of the rest of the fellows, who are
not old enough to secure an operator's license.
It is conceded that the new baseball diamond has the ap-

It is a mistaken notion of some underclassmen that they can

have reached their senior year when Father Wurzer must
arrange it so that they can carry no less than ten subjects
and thereby graduate.
It is peculiar to some students to rant continually about
their assiduous pursuit of learning, and then "Hunk" their
It has been noticed that, when the Arete is published, the
average student exclaims in disguest that it is the work of
a favored fewg for such criticism let it be said that much
was written, but only a little was chosen.
It is likewise peculiar to some people to disdain all pretense
to study, and then to pass with a high average.
It is an accepted truth that it is the freshman that makes
all the noise that disturbs oneg that it is the sophomore who
swaggers down the corridors with an air of braggadocio
and bumps oneg and that the junior is the smiling, quiet fel-

It is also axiomatic that it is the senior who sets the exam-

Q' UR life in Aquinas, although of short duration, has
W Q, been an extremely happy one. Now that the time
rj. .jx has come when we, the Senior Class of nineteen
1 ".-' " hundred and twenty-eight, must depart from this
za as life, it is our desire to insure an equally happy one
lyk., ,wi for our successors.
With this object in view, we do hereby draw up
'A' and publish our last will and testament.
I. To our Alma Mater we leave a record of our
achievements of which we are justly proud, together
with a spirit of eternal love and loyalty. We also
remind her of her obligation to ever keep us fresh
in her memory.
II. To the Junior Class, we extend our heartiest good wishes,
and hope that in the year to come they may fully enjoy all the
privileges which will be theirs upon their attainment of mighty
Seniordom. We charge them with observing the "Flag Day",
which we inaugurated, and expect them to see to the placing of
the National Emblem in the home rooms during their senior year.
III. To the Sophomores, we bequeath our unsurpassed abil-
ity in all things scholastic and commend them, each and every one,
for the masterly way in which they have "slaughtered" the tyrant
Caesar. Under the able guidance of Father Keefe, to whose care
we commit you, many more equally brilliant victories will be won.
IV. On the Freshmen, we bestow the privilege of going to
the cafeteria during the second lunch period, Where, through their
association with the Juniors and yea, even the mighty Seniors, they
may gain bits of knowledge which will carry them on to their goal.
May they increase in knowledge, and in dignity!
V. To the members of the faculty who have labored so unself-
ishly in our behalf, we can offer nothing more than an assurance
of our deepest gratitude and regret at this parting. Always help-
ful, ever encouraging, they have proved themselves true friends
to us all.
Having hereby set down the terms of our last will and testa-
ment, we do appoint as our executor The Reverend Joseph E.
Grady, vesting him with the full authority necessary for the en-
forcement of the above mentioned terms and conditions.
Testator, THE CLASS OF 1928.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, we hereunto set our hand and seal this

One of the most common things in the world is friendship, but
one of the rarest is true, congenial friendship. A man may have
innumerable friends and still have but one true friend. The word
friendship is often misused for acquaintance. A friend is one
whose thoughts and ideals are closely allied with yours. You should
be on the same social and intellectual level as he. You should be
able to converse freely and confidentially with him, and periods of
silence between conversation should not be lonesome, but congenial.
These qualities are essential to true friendship. Acquaintances
need have none of these. An acquaintance may be positively dis-
taitefuli to you, but if he is not an enemy, he is usually classed as
a r1en .
Another essential to frienship is love. Among men this is rare.
To love, you must want to love another, regardless of the cost. If
you really love a friend, his actions may hurt you terribly at times
but you are always willing to forgive. The only thing that can
break up a true friendship is lack of honor. When once you lose
confidence in your friend's word, you lose confidence in him, and
the crumbling of friendship begins.
A close friendship will alter both persons concerned. Each
will pick out the good and sometimes the bad qualities in the other
for imitation. If you really love a person, you admire him. If you
admire him, you want to be like him, and it is in trying to be like
him that you imitate him. Close friendships are not always a
benefit because of this imitation, but on the whole they are bene-
ficial. Anything cannot be condemned because of the exceptions.
I have a friend, a real one. We agree on nine points out of
every ten. We love one another and would go through fire for one
another. What is his is mine, and vice versa. We have the same
tastes in books, sports and work. We can sit and talk for hours
at a time. The pauses in our conversation are never awkward, but,
on the contrary, they are congenial. We play pranks on each
other and take them good naturedly. This fellow is more a friend,
an intimate to me than some of my own relativesg although my love
for him is not so strong, perhaps it is a different kind of love. We
have been together for six years, and he goes to school now with
me at Aquinas. During this time there have been only two minor
breaks in our relations, which were quickly patched up. He is the
one bright spot in this rather drab high school life.
A true friend is a treasure, the needle in the haystack. If you
gain a true friend, keep him, as you may never have another. True
friendships come but once in a lifetime to some people, other people
have several. To conclude, I think I have proved that true friend-
ship is one of the greatest infiuences in life.

It does not lie within the field of everyone to be able to make
an interesting sketch, to write a humorous story or, perhaps, one
in a deeply serious vein, but it is within the power of each one of
us to say a few words concerning his school life at Aquinas.
To me it does not mean the culmination of all striving but it
does mean a way to an end. Having nearly completed that way a
feeling of work accomplished flows through me. Perhaps it could
or should have been done better, but finished it is and that once
and for all. The best I can say is that if I were to start in again
I would choose Aquinas such as it is, knowing that in no other
institution for secondary education could I better prepare myself
for my future life. WILLIAM JONES.

Just as in the coffee shops of London, various groups of society
were wont to meet to discuss the current news of the day, so do
the students of Aquinas turn our cafeteria into a hall where they
may discuss all the affairs of interest to the several groups of
students who attend our school. .
At one table may be found those renowned in local sport activ-
itiesg at another, are seated those who prefer to debate about
economic problems or to delve into the intricacies of some mathe-
matical puzzleg while at a third we find the socially inclined anxious
to complete the plans for their next event.
Another class of fellows may be found who visit the cafeteria
solely for the purpose of building up their tissue and, if the con-
versation of the other groups proves interesting to the onlooker,
the "down to business" air of this crowd proves fully as interest-
Whatever the purpose of the student's visit to the cafeteria,
he seldom leaves it before he has yielded to the lure of the candy
counter and, with his pockets filled with a goodly supply of con-
fections, he hies for class with an expression of complete satis-
faction. ARTHUR SCHWARTZ. -

We look on a magnificent scene of soft, white silence. The
hills on either side of the valley that nestles before us display their
new coats of priceless ermine in the cold shafts of pale light from
the bleak, frozen moon, wandering in solitude in the sea of ebony
that stretches over us. Directly in front looms a limitless forest,
its tall pine trees stretching long, thin, black fingers toward the
silver disk high above. The sparkling beauty of this study in
black and white absorbs us and leaves us spellbound. We do not
even realize the great coldness, although the frigid hand of the
North is probably congealing our blood. Not a sound, not a sign
of life disturbs the rugged grandeur of this shimmering spectacle.
Suddenly on our benumbed senses falls the scraping, crackling
sound of rapid approach. Who can it be? Then, from the dark,
forbidding recesses of the forest is ejected a small, hastening fig-
ure. It must be a boy, but Why is he hurrying so? He is tired
out now. His wobbling limbs will scarcely lift the snowshoes. He
must be-. It's a girlg and someone is following her! A big, burly,
greasy man, evidently of Latin extraction, is swiftly overtaking
her-a tender fawn pursued by a greedy wolf-a beautiful, pure,
sweet violet about to be trampled on by a monstrous beast. He
stretches out his arm to seize her-"Stop". The crackling of ten
thousand whiplashes is in the command that comes from the sum-
mit of the little hill on our right. A tall, thin man with tremend-
ously broad shoulders and eyes as cold and piercing as the moon
itself, is quickly beside the panting man and the terror-stricken
girl. Ah! This is what we've searched for in all parts of the globe.
Adventure, romance and chivalry are not dead after all! The tall
man grasps the fiabby Frenchman in a crushing grip. There will
be a fightg there will be murderg there will be-Crash:
The super-jazz band of the Winter Garden Supper Club blares
forth in brilliant harmony and "Mignon et Compagnons" whirl in-
to the dizzy first steps of their specialty dance. We slump back
in our chair. Something has gone from us. It was almost in our
possession a moment ago, but now it is gone. Truly, then, our
search for adventure and romance has been fruitless. Chivalry is
dead. The knights and ladies of old are departed and in their
place we have braying saxophone players and writhing dancers.

All men were created equal, but their tastes and habits are not
alike. There is a peculiar streak in almost every person which at-
tracts him to one certain thing. This is called his hobby. For
instance, book collectors fancy old books, first editions and rare
bindings. An exact duplicate of the same book may be available
in the seventh edition at about one-twenty-fifth of the price he pays
for the first edition. Stamp collectors, also, pay large sums of
money for old issues of stamps. These are two of the more com-
There are also other hobbies which people have. These are
also common but are not so well known. A man may have a liking
for clothes. His wardrobe probably contains about three suits for
every occasion, formal or informal. Another may have a fancy
for shoes and may have fifteen or twenty pairs of shoes. There
are also many jewel collectors. They purchase all kinds of jewelry,
antique and modern, imitation and real. I recall one man, known
as "Diamond" Jim Brady, who had a habit of wearing no jewelry
but diamonds. His rings, studs, cuff-links and tie pins were all set
with large diamonds.
These habits grow on one just as the smoking of cigarettes
does. A collector may hear of an art treasure, a rare stamp or a first
edition, and travel many thousand miles to obtain it and pay an
incredible sum of money for it. If you must have a hobby, I ad-
vise you to pick out an inexpensive one because some people have
been known to pay out their last cent for some object to complete

When the classes all are done,
I mean all but the last one,
I sit with anxious eye turned toward the clock.
With a minute more to go,
It never seemed so slow,
It's like an hour 'tween every tick and tock.
The teacher stern and cross,
Gives work-Ctwould kill a horsel,
But what he's saying doesn't mean a thing.
I am thinking of the fun
We could have if school were done.
Say, is the class bell ever going to ring?
And thus it is each day
That we while the hours away,
Unmindful of the value of our time.
When our high school life is o'er,
We shall miss it more and more.

SIT in my darkened room alone watching the dying

leaving us cool and refreshed. But what are dreams? Dreams are
clouds that float eternally over the everlasting sky of thought,
changing ever their shapes and colored by the experiences of life.
You may catch the strong outlines that life brings today on their
fingers, but tomorrow may breed a whirlwind that will drive black
shadows across your sky of thought and change the aspect of your
Dreams are the fountains of youth in whose mirrored depths
time vanishes. He who dreams is young, whether his hair be
golden or grayg whether his life is just begun or his life is nigh
well done. Shall we point to one and say that he is a dreamer and
condemn him for that? No! We are all dreamers! No matter
how matter of fact we may be, no matter how unemotional, no
matter how economical, we have all dreamed and are dreamers.
Who has not speculated on wealth, love, home, marriage, the fu-
ture? We all have, and therefore we have dreamed. No mind is
so dull, no eye so blind that it cannot find pabulum for dreams.
Each little episode is full could we but perceive it. Every action
has its effect on the soul. Everything has its tears and smiles. The
world is full of material, and every suggesting thought is making
us what we are and what we shall be. Yes, dreams are realities
and play a subtle part in our lives. We may not be masters of our
destiny, we may not be masters of the universe, but we are mas-
ters of dreams, and dreams are our lives. HIRAM BERG.

Under the direction of lVIr. Joseph Schnitzer, faculty director
of dramatics, the Dramatic Club presented the three-act comedy
"Dulcy," in the auditorium, on the evenings of October 24, 25,
The play centered about a young married couple, Mr. Gordon
Smith and his wife, Dulcy, and their efforts to gain the favor of a
wealthy magnatc, C. Rogers Forbes. After many reverses and a
few embarrassing encounters, affairs turn out favorably to all.
Too much cannot be written in praise of the manner in which
the boys impersonatcd the feminine characters, nor should we pass
over the work ot' Harvey Rockwell in portraying the stern qualities
of the magnate, Forbes. ln fact, every member of the cast did
justice to his part as was evidenced by the rounds of applause
which their work elicited from those present.
We congratulate both the Club and its director for the de-
lightful entertainment which "Dulcy" afforded the appreciative
audiences which crowded the auditorium on the three evenings of
On the feast of Saint Thomas, Apostle, the students of Aquinas
presented "Fiat Luxf' a short play in which was vividly portrayed
the deep significance of the gift of Faith. It was a fitting per-
formance for the Christmas season and one whose little lesson still
lingers with us and will continue to linger. Clayton Woerner, on
behalf of the faculty and student body, offered felicitations to our
Right Reverend Bishop on the occasion of his Patron's feast. His
Lordship's presence added much to our enjoyment of the assembly.

Since the opening of our new building in nineteen twenty-five,
the students of Aquinas Institute have distinguished themselves in
dramatics. It was left to the class of '28 to introduce the produc-
tion of a senior play.
"Tweedles," a comedy in three acts, was presented to record
assemblies on the evenings of April twenty-third, twenty-fourth,
and twenty-fifth. The audiences were loud in their praise of the
young actors and departed with an evident feeling of satisfaction.
The seniors are grateful to our Reverend Principal for permis-
sion to put on the play and for the active interest he took in its
successg to Mr. Schnitzer for his untiring efforts in training the
actors and to the faculty and student body for their aid in staging
the play and in the sale of tickets.
In years to come, we shall entertain happy reflections of those
April evenings of '28 when we entertained very large and kindly
appreciative audiences with our presentation of "Tweedles."

Nothing could close the dramatic section of our book more
fittingly than an expression of appreciation on the part of the
seniors for the Work that has been done by Mr. Joseph M.
Schnitzer. Mr. Schnitzer helped in every Way possible to induce
the seniors to present a play this year, and then he assured the
play a successful run by directing it. He stopped at nothing to
make the presentation everything it should be, to make it live up
to the reputation that he has built for Aquinas in local dramatic
circles. In taking leave of Mr. Schnitzer the class expresses its
heartfelt sorrow for the forced parting, and Wishes him the success
he deserves in his future dramatic efforts.

is with glad hearts and joyous feelings that they,

"JW him the best of fortune in his new undertakings.
Aquinas always represents the highest peak of
rss-vkfii perfection in the lines of athletic activities. For the
past few years this institution has blazed the name
Rochester from coast to coast. Its record is one that
many schools would be proud to possess.
This scholastic season opened minus an individual who has
been one of the most important factors in the success of the Fight-
ing Irish. When Mr. McCarthy signed a contract which severed
his relations with this school, he left an institution of glad and sor-
rowful youths. Sorrowful, because they were reluctant, not to
lose a friend, but to part with him. Glad, because they believed
his rise was a just and merited one.
"Mac," as he is known to all, first began to reap glory and
prominence for Aquinas and himself when his team established a
world's record in the First National Catholic Tournament in Chi-
cago. From then on it was a matter of how many records he and
his entourage would amass. In the season '24-'25, his team cap-
tured third place in the National Tournament besides having one
player picked for the mythical tourney five and one chosen as the
most valuable player to participate in the tournament. One would
imagine a warrior should be content to rest with these laurels, but
not the indomitable "Mac." He reached the pinnacle of success
when he guided the Maroon and White to second place honors in
the National Tourney in Chicago in the year '25-'26. At the con-
clusion of the tournament "Mac" received the honor of having the
finest coached team in the tournament besides having one of his
players chosen for the mythical all-tourney Eve and the esteem of
sport loving fans in the whole country.
Success had been achieved. He had done his part to place
New York State, Rochester and Aquinas Institute on the map and
on his triumphant return he was acclaimed with honors due to a
His time, unknowingly, was drawing to a close but, knowingly,
he gave all for the honor of those whom he loved.
As his work in the past has been above the standard, no doubt
is entertained that he will acquit himself creditably in the new rank
to which he has advanced by patience, determination, hard work
and sportsmanship and it is with unbounded pleasure and expecta-
tion that we View the results of his work in the Niagara institution.

"At the close of school last June we were obliged to part with
an individual who was one of the outstanding figures in the sport
annals of Aquinas Institute. When Mr. McCarthy severed his
relations with our institution, he left a position which was hard
indeed to fill. The selecting of a person to guide the destiny of our
school in athletics was a matter which required a great amount of
consideration. However, we are happy to announce that before
school opened we were fortunate to obtain the signature of a young
man to take the place of Mr. McCarthy, a young man who is
well versed in Aquinas ways."
With these few words, the Reverend Father Byrne officially
presented Mr. Mortimer Leary to the Aquinas student body as
director of athletics at the Irish school. The presentation occurred
on the day of the basketball rally which opens our season each year.
In a few words, "Mort," as he is known to the student body, intro-
duced himself and instantly won the respect and confidence of all.
He expressed an ardent hope that he would be able to keep Aquinas
at the head of the list as it had been in the past and said that he
would work ceaselessly toward this end.
The record which this young man brought with him is one
that anyone could be envious of. "Mort" is an alumnus of the old
Frank Street institution, being a member of the class of '23, While
there, besides maintaining a high scholastic average, he was a mem-
ber of numerous athletic teams, under Coach McCarthy, whom he
has succeeded. In his last year at Aquinas, he was captain of both
the basketball and baseball teams, a singular honor in itself. He
was pilot of the five which established a world's record at Chicago.
He finished his career in a blaze of glory by pitching his team to a
decisive victory over the strong Christian Brothers Academy team
of Syracuse. After leaving Aquinas, "Mort"
entered Villanova, where he continued his
wonderful work. Besides being connected
with several school activities, he was a mem-
ber of both the basketball and baseball
squads, shining particularly on the court. He
was also staff artist at the Catholic college.
After two years at college, he accepted a
position on the staff of the Buffalo Courier.
It was this position which "Mort" vacated
when he signed the contract which made him
director of athletics at his "Alma Mater."
We cannot but admire and marvel at the
work of this young man. His triumphant rise
has not been easy, but his work has been
brilliant and consistent. In wishing him the
best of luck in his new enterprise, we can
glance at the record of his past achievement
and, if it is an indication of what the future
holds, we can feel amply satisfied.

COACH LEARY'S FIRST SEASON A SUCCESS, MAROON AND WHITE
UNDERGO TOUGHEST SCHEDULE IN SCHOOL'S HISTORY
The 1927-1928 basketball season was marked by the appear-
ance of a new coach, Mort Leary. It would be hard to describe the
diiiicult tangle which our "old gradl' had taken on with the deter-
mination to handle it in a successful manner. Our Manager,
Howard Miller, had bracketed the Maroon and White against the
cream of basketball quints and any one who reflects on the calibre
of such teams as those of : Christian Brothers' Academy, Fosdick-
Masten, Oswego High, Cleveland Latin High, Niagara Frosh, Man-
lius and Cook Academy realizes that defeat at such hands was no
In facing this schedule, our young mentor had to work with
almost an entirely new club built around our one veteran, Scotty
McMillen, as a nucleus.
After many try-outs and much deliberation, Coach Leary final-
ly selected the personnel of the team and, on November 18, the
basketball season was ushered in when as hosts Aquinas faced the
Newark High aggregation. The visitors were out for a win, but
Aquinas scored its first victory 26-8 and Rochester basketball
fans went home firmly convinced of the ability of Leary and his
quint. This game was followed by victories over the Alumni,
Painted Post, and Corning. We suffered the first defeat when we
met Niagara Frosh. Our boys held the advantage over their older
rivals until within four minutes of the close, when Bill McCarthy's
charges staged a desperate rally which secured them a victory, the
early season games were at an end and the team had worked into
a winning combination which was soon to be put to the test against
the "crack" teams on their schedule.
After victories over Greigsville and Painted Post, once more
Aquinas bowed to defeat at Oswego. It looked as if fortune were
about to change cities but in a last minute spurt Aquinas lost. The
following week the team completely swamped St. Mary's by a
38-15 count. In the Masten Park and Assumption games a few
lucky shots during the final moments gave our opponents two and
three point wins respectively.
THE VICTORY OVER C. B. A.
With the renewal of relations between C. B. A. and Aquinas,
added enthusiasm seized both team and student body. According
to rumor, the Syracuse team was enjoying a successful season. The
"Tm: FIGHTING IRISH"
team was made up of practically all underclassmen who were de-
clared to be stars of the first magnitude. Brimming with confidence,
Coach Kearney and his club arrived, prepared to trounce the wear-
ers 'of the Maroon and White. The game is history, now. With
a few minutes to play, Haragadan of Syracuse tied the score and
it was only at the close of the last of four extra periods, that
Tommy Burns carved his name in indelible letters on the Aquinas
roll of basketball stars by letting loose the ball from the center of
the floor which zipped through and sent our rivals home on the
short end of a 19-17 score. The Irish had upset the dope and,
with characteristic grit, had copped the decision which turned
Rochester over to the jubilant students, who paraded the streets
in triumphant glee for no short space of time.
In the wake of this victory, St. Joe's, Latin High, Oswego and
Assumption fell before our triumphant march. All of these were
clubs of no mean ability. St. J oe's had won ten out of eleven starts
before meeting us. Cleveland Latin came here with a victory over
East High, Cleveland Public School Champions. Assumption suf-
fered their first loss on their home court when they lost to the
Irish. Oswego had Won sixteen straight before we stopped them
and included in their list of victories C. B. A. and Central High,
Public School State Champions. Aquinas simply rode dryshod over
them all, seemingly to work up an appetite for the coming C.
B. A. tussle. At Utica, the team played minus their captain and
the loss of McMillen was thought to be a bad blow to our hopes.
However, the team staged a whirlwind attack and the score 23-5
tells the tale. We were now ready for C. B. A. on their home court
and for the first time in a number of years we were going into the
game with an even chance. A number of students journeyed to
Syracuse very confident and returned a bit sorrowful. They were
just too good for us. Our consolation was the manifestation of
the splendid school spirit rendered by the Rochester contingent.
which completely put to shame Syracuse's supporters. In ringing
down the curtain on our basketball year, Aquinas endeavored to
bring some high class opposition here with the result that we found
ourselves bracketed against two of the best teams of the entire
state and teams that were claiming the championship of the East-
ern United States. Both Manlius and Cook Academy brought out-
fits here that were good, very good, but the Maroon threw a scare
into both teams and the visiting contingents were mighty glad to
escape by margins of a very few points.
Four members of the Fighting Irish wrote Iinis to their bas-
ketball playing at the Dewey Avenue school and all topped it off
by displaying brilliant basketball in their last games. Burns,
Haffey, Kendall and McMillen will graduate in June and will not
grace the basketball court in high school circles any more. Much
praise is due to our captain for the brand of basketball he has
shown throughout the season and his hard fighting has been the
shining light in all the games in which he participated. Playing
from a guard and center position, "Scotty" totaled over one hun-
dred points this year while continually out-playing his opponent.
Throughout the season the team played in a convincing fashion
and from a green outfit a remarkable team was formed. Playing
together in unison, working hard on plays and unselfishly giving
their all, the boys worked together in harmony and spirit. The
best of relations existed between all members of the outfit and their
mentor, "Mort" Leary, and when we gaze at the results of their
work we cannot but extend our heartiest congratulations to those
who have carried on for Aquinas.

RESERVE TEAM ENJOYS GOOD SEASON
Despite the numerous obstacles placed before the reserve team,
the squad enjoyed a fairly successful season. Ineligibility rules and
invasions by the Hrst tearn hindered thern considerably at the start
with the result that team Work and practice were sacrificed. Soon
however, the arrival of reinforcements greatly aided the team, and
frorn then oriit perforrned in convincing fashion. Iniportant vic-
tories were registered over such teams as the Dolan A. C., Cam-
pions, Shamrocks, Celtics, Aljos and Camera Works Reserves. Lar-
mer and Hickey, accompanied by Jones, stood out by their brilliant
playing both on the offense and the defense. The latter two players,
Hickey and Jones, due to an infiux in first team material, joined the
reserves in time to change the scene and start registering victories.
Larmer was high scorer with sixty-six points While Hickey and
Jones were right behind with forty-seven and thirty-nine respec-

One of the greatest individual factors in the success of our
athletic teams this year has been the sterling work of our three
cheerleaders. Space permits but a short resume of the work of
head cheerleader, Lewis Deitz, and his able assistants, Henry
McLaughlin and Ermine Masucci. Out of choatic and riotous out-
bursts our producers of organized noise have always succeeded in
developing harmony. Who of us will forget that memorable game
at Syracuse, when the efforts of our cheerleaders resulted in the
production of noise enough to put the Syracuse supporters in a
back seat? Much credit is given to '6Louie" and his assistants for
their unselfish work, and every member of the school owes them a
vote of thanks.
To several members of the class of 1928 the school wishes to
express its gratitude for the splendid co-operation they extended to
the basketball team. The Arete joins with the team in extending
thanks to Raymond Sommers and John Skelly, ticket sellers, and
to John Rodman, Frank Miller, Gerard Delaire, and Carl Draxl, our

During the spring of 1927, through the co-operation of former
athletic director Mr. William McCarthy, the students of the school
who possessed enough athletic prowess to enable them to obtain
the coveted first team "A", banded themselves together into an
organization called the Block "A" club. In the beginning of its
existence not much could be expected. Time was short, it was the
lirst to be established in the city and its resolutions were vague and
not too secure. 1
However, with the resumption of school in the fall of '27, the
organization held a meeting, elected officers and started to assert
itself in a noticeable way. The members adopted resolutions per-
taining to their connections with all school activities, no matter of
what nature they might be. They fostered each and every school
activity as much as possible. Their spirit was infectious. During
the basketball season they stirred up spirit among the students,
imploring them to come out and support the team.
Perhaps the most praiseworthy activity which the club helped
to promote was supervision of the drive by which were provided
the crucifixes which now adorn the walls of our classrooms. By this
act they manifested their true loyalty.
Recently, the club held an important meeting in which a testi-
monial was drawn up whereby the members, in acknowledgment
of their appreciation and respect for the original founder of the
club, decided to elect Mr. William McCarthy as honorary president
of the club for life.

The wearers of the Maroon and White in their opening game
of the season traveled and returned after decisively inflicting a
6-4 defeat on the town team. Despite the fact that it was the
opening game for the Irish, a flashy brand of ball-playing was dis-
played. The team manifested a strong hitting combination and
their work in the field sparkled with fine plays and stops. Ray
Sommers, veteran right-hander, started in the box for Leary's
nine, due to the absence of Captain Sims, who was ill at home. Ray
was in perfect form and for the first six innings did not allow a
hit. However, the strain told and he was removed in the seventh
inning when Fairport gleaned all her runs. Carroll, a rookie on
the squad, saved the day by entering the box and retiring the side
with bags loaded.
The squad is built around Captain Sims, Sommers, Coia,
Gallagher and Maloney, all veterans. In the outfield, Leary has
Walsh, Maloney, Hart and Kendall, while in the infield Gallagher
guards first with Coia at second, Burke and Green at short and
Cullinan at third. Jim Haifey and Kohler seem capable of gather-
ing in the slants of the pitchers, who number five: Sims, Sommers,
Pero, Carroll and Katafiaz. As the Arete goes to press, it extends
to the team the best of wishes for a successful season, hoping they
will continue the good work started in Fairport.

During the Christmas vacation of the year 1925, Raymond,
"Red", Margrett, while indulging in his favorite pastime on the
skating rink, suddenly decided that it would be a wonderful occa-
sion if he would be able to introduce hockey into the school as an
official athletic organization. This decision happened to settle on
fertile ground, and shortly after the recess a notice summoning all
those who desired to play hockey to meet and form an organization
was posted on the bulletin board. This resulted in an amateur
team being formed, "Red" being elected captain and the name
"Maroons" being adopted. Thus began in material form Raymond's
dream. That year and also the following one the club enjoyed
mediocre success. Their chief virtue seemed to be patience. Little
or no attention was rendered by school authorities despite the fact
that the Maroon and White was not being dragged and scoffed at
when on the ice.
However, when the sun began to throw glistening rays over
frozen water and skates began to ring over the ice, "Red", now in
his last year, made a final attempt for recognition. Gathering to-
gether William Young, Ermine Masucci, Donald' Woods, Richard
Murphy, Harold Maid, Harold Rock, Arthur Schwartz, Gerald
Wilson and Anthony Culkin, he banded them into a formidable
organization led by himself and coached by a former hockey star,
Mr. O'Connell of the faculty. They soon proved their worth when
they began to stack up against opposition of strong calibre. After
the first few games, an added interest was evinced among the
students and even officials of the institution began to take notice.
The sextet encountered more teams during the course of the season
and when the players discarded their paraphernalia it was with an
inner satisfaction of pride and joy. The season had been a complete
success. They played seven games, winning five, losing one and
tying one. The most important victories of the season were wins
registered over representatives of West High, East High, and New
York State Highways. Their only loss came when after leading
the Country Club six up to the last few minutes, the club team
spurted and swept through to a victory in an extra period game,
6-5. It was a case of the best team leaving the ice triumphant.
In glancing at the spectacular playing of the flashy "Redhead,"
one can easily see why his teammates elected him captain for the
third successive year. Ife is not given to individual playing but
is characteristic for his hard work and brainy surmising. On the
wvhokg the tearn presented a strong defense and vvhen occasion de-
manded their offensive playing was thrilling to Watch. In leaving
these walls "Red" will be glad to know that his efforts have not
been in vain and that, mainly through his interest and unceasing
zeal, we hope to establish ice-hockey as an official organization in
our category. We feel that this promise of a new enterprise will
be a fitting reward, although small in comparison to the work he
expended for his "Alma Mater."
In glancing at their record, we find the team scoring divided
among "Harry" Maid, one point, "Don" Woods, one point, "Bill"
Young, seven points, "Red" Margrett, twelve points.

Projects in Progress A
After three years of persistent work, Aquinas Institute has
become "set" in its new location. It is gradually building up a
scholastic record which will be second to none. It has developed
a name in sport circles that will always be remembered. Aquinas
is now turning its attention to equipping the grounds and building
with a view of pleasing the athletic and aesthetic tastes of the
students. While the gymnasium is well fitted out, the outdoor
sports have been neglected. At the beginning of this year, Father
Byrne announced, to the joy of the students, that work would be
soon started on the baseball field, and that tennis courts would be
erected. This is as far as the work has progressed. There are still
many fields of sport to be developed. A track about the baseball
diamond would interest many students. The space north of the
school could easily be converted into a hockey rink.
However, the most pressing work to be done in this line is
the completion of the swimming pool. About nine-tenths of the
students are interested in swimming, and so this pool would be
well patronized. Let us hope that future Aquinas classes will enjoy

I this school year of 1926 seemed almost an impossi-
bility, but now, as we look back on the past term, is
it not true, that each one of us solemnly scratches
l, 15 his head and wonders where in the world those ten
V V months have fled? It hardly seems more than a few
weeks ago that we entered the doors of Aquinas as
the first four year class "to grace" the new building.
-"1 . Feeling, and no doubt acting, like royal lords of the
highest rank, we were directed to the unfinished
gymnasium where many well intended, but soon for-
gotten words were spoken to us by the heads of the various depart-
ments. Because of the uncompleted condition of the building reg-
ular classes were slow in startingg but when they did start, there
was never a more surpised or bewildered group of grammar school
graduates than the class of '29. Our balloon was pierced! Some
of us had been expecting a life of pure bliss with plenty of fun,
study once in a while and possibly an occasional reprimand from
our dear professors, whom we had been told would teach us. But,
gracious reader, our balloon was piercedg we sank: we studied: we
were reprimanded, not by dear old professors, as we had pictured
them, but by pedigreed descendants of the dread pedagogue of
For the first few months, the professors, or teachers, as we
soon learned to call them, divided their time in trying to exact the
assigned lessons from unwilling students, in finding out why the
said students did not know their assigned lessons, and in adminis-
tering advice or punishment, according to the mood of the said
teachers. The advice, in sense, usually consisted of Virgil's words,
"Stubborn labor conquers everything," while the punishment took
the form of a trip to the jug. For the benefit of any unfamiliar'
readers it may be wise to state that this well known and equally
well hated word, "jug," refers to a prison-like hall, in which
students are unwillingly detained for the period of one hour after
However, by the time the mid-year examinations had come
and gone, with their joys and sorrows, we were a changed group
of freshmen. We applied ourselves to our studies, to the delight
of our teachers, if not willingly, at least wisely. But there was one
thing that we were never able to master-the art of explaining to
unsympathetic parents, the fifties and sixty-iives on the report
card. Many of us are convinced that this is a Lost Art, never to
Following the mid-year examinations, the basket-ball season,
which had opened in November, was in full swing, and some real
games did that season bring us. We cheered as loudly as the upper-
classmen at the splendid record hung up by the Aquinas team at
Chicago. The annual play also was a marked success in many

ways. Baseball, too, had its share in making our freshman year
endurable. Indeed, all things considered, we were not having a
disagreeable time at all.
0 And then the final examinations. Huge and disheartening they
appeared to our lacking intellects. There was not one of us who
would not have given his kingdom to escape them, but yet they
came. And now we have battled them, and, as Perry once said on
0 Lake Erie, "We have met the enemy and they are ours," so we say
now, "We have met the exams and we are Sophomoresf'
But let us leave these freshman hours and look back, before
some filmy curtain falls to sever the vivid pictures of happy sopho- H'
more days from our memory. We, the freshmen of last year, now X
have a feeling of great superiority, intellectually and otherwise, '
that was not ours last year. We are able now to enjoy the ludicrous
pranks of the freshmen, and fheathenlikej, to scoff at their mis- 'J
. takes. But, freshmen, it is all in life. You had to take what we 0
gave you, whether you liked it or not. We were scoffed at once 5.
. ourselves, and so, during the past few months, we felt justified in wg
taunting you. Every dog has his day-said Benjamin Franklin or 5.
was it Aristotle?
Last September, we entered the school a very much wiser
group of schoolboys than we were the year before. This time we
were not so foolish as to believe that we were the only things of
importance in Aquinas Institute, we had learned what to expect in
regard to teachers and were prepared to act accordingly. As a
result of this, affairs went on much more smoothly than they had
at the beginning of the previous year. We took the periodical
examinations, if not what some would call gracefully, at least with
more resignation and calmness, than any we took .in the freshman
period. Another thing, which we believe to be an improvement
over those early days, is that our names were always evident on
the honor roll. Since these honor rolls have been published, some
of us have taken great pride in seeing our names in the news- fy,
, papers. Besides studies, we were well represented in various other
0 fields, such as oratory, drama, and sport. But, we believe, that the
greatest of all our achievements this year is that we have made
the teachers treat us, not as if we were a group of girls, but as real
men, who have something to say in this world-do we imagine it?
Perhaps this balloon will also burst if we blow too hard. lv
Nevertheless, the fact remains that in September we shall be
Juniors, since most of us have conquered the Caesars and other
worries of the second year. Another remaining fact is that two
more years and-the goal, Graduation.
Now, let us again consider one more year in the treadmill of I
time as past. We knew that this year was coming, we lived with
it as long as it stayed with us, and now it is about to disappear. As
it fades from our mental view, it also takes with it the coveted title it
of Juniors which we have cherished during the last school term.
We are now about to enter on our home stretch and become Seniors.
We have quit the pranks and frolics of freshmen and sophomores 1
and are striving to attain our goal, which we are now able to see

in the hazy distance. The full realization of the honor in being the
first four-year class of the new Aquinas to graduate, is now begin-
ning to dawn upon us. We realized that we were favored in this,
while in the first and second years, but not until now did we appre-
ciate the meaning it conveyed.
Thus far, most of us have enjoyed the Junior year in a right
and proper manner. The subjects reserved for this third term, we
have found to be both interesting and practical. Another very
weighty reason for our enjoyment is that we hold a different opin-
ion of the pedigreed pedagogues of our freshman yearg we realize
that our idea, that, "Two nights in the jug for you !" is not the sole
reason for teachers being employed to instruct the young. We are
also glad that teachers do not insist on being called "Professors,"
for in our pre-freshman days, this was a great source of worry to
our timid minds.
So with new enthusiasm and zest, we pray, work and hope for
the white diploma and wonder how many more will have dropped
from our original ranks by 1929.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failureg
There are thousands to point out to you one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to itg
Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
That "cannot be done" and you'l1 do it.
After a work has been done, every one is ready to pronounce
it easyg but before it has been done, those same individuals term
it impossible. One of the shortcomings of mankind is to shrink
from whatever popular opinion styles impossible.
The chief reason why people dread to embark upon great en-
terprises is that they view all the difficulties attendant upon such
undertakings at once. They realize that, at least in the initial
steps, they are destined for successg but the final outcome is so
uncertain. Did they ever bear in mind that "Well begun, is half
done," and that "Perseverance spells success," how much of this
unfounded fear would vanish!
The surmounting of the first barrier gives strength and cour-
age for the more diflicult ones to come. Mountains, from a dis-
tance, appear unscalable. But they can be climbed, and the one
way to begin is to take a step upward. From that initial step the
mountain begins to lose in height. As Hannibal led his army across
the foothills, among the upper ranges and iinally over the lofty
crests and through the passes of the Alps: or as Columbus forced
his almost mutinous crew to "Sail on, and on, and on!", so can we
achieve any purpose if we heed not the fearful, meet each problem
as it arises, and manfully strive to the end. "IT CAN BE DONE."

turned to the screen, with a sardonic expression now masking his
emotions, but this aspect was quickly supplanted by one of mixed
amazement and credulity. That character, sad and gentle of coun-
tenance, who was he? Why-Jesus of Nazareth!
All around the audience sat hushed, while an air of reverence
prevailed throughout the theater like some supernatural spell. The
picture was an epic of the screen-portraying the world's supreme
tragedy-and the scenes Were enacted with Biblical exactness. In-
deed the actors had sensed something of Divine spirit and the result
was evident in its reception by the assemblage.
The man's face Was trembling with varying emotions. A sub-
title--"My kingdom is not of this earth"-flashed on the screen
and then a gleam of reflection beamed in the man's eyes. Perhaps
he was Wrong. Still the hum of the projector resounded and the
pulsating rhythm of the orchestra and the celluloid tale was un-
raveled. When at last the words-"Lol I am with you till the end
of the world"-had followed, the man appeared transformed. With
a straight and determined bearing, distinctly suggestive of peace,
he made his way to the street.
Unconsciously, for he was yet in an ectasy of contrition, the
man, in an effort to cross the thoroughfare, stepped from the curb
into the street. Suddenly there was a grinding of brakes, a cry
of horrgr from some onlooker, and the man lay crumpled in a pool
of bloo .
The man had been defeated by the modern World, saved by a
modern presentation of a story centuries old, and it was fitting
that his epitaph should be written in modern style. And it appeared

On the 2d of March, Aquinas went to play Christian Brothers
Academy at Syracuse. We managed to beat C. B. A., our tradi-
tional enemies, in the game at Rochester by a close score. Now we
were eager to do what no Aquinas team had ever done,-beat C.
B. A. on their own court.
A mixed collection of juniors, a few seniors and many sopho-
mores, were gathered at the station of the Rochester and Syracuse
Railroad on Court Street. We set out at 4 o'clock in two cars, a
chair car and a coach. As the sophomores had most foresight they
obtained the chair car. We rolled down Exchange Street and up
Main Street. Two sirens furnished plenty of noise. The people
on the street evidently thought that there had been a murder or a
Hre somewhere, to judge from the alarmed expressions on their
faces as they turned to stare at us.
There was plenty of fun on the way down. We rattled and
roared our way through the metropolises of East Rochester, Port
Byron, Newark K not in New J erseyb and Clyde. The traffic police-
man in East Rochester did not seem to appreciate the humor of the
situation when an electric siren was started just in front of his
face. In fact, he seemed quite peeved. CWe didn't stop.J
About half past six we arrived in Syracuse. Coming to a stop
in the park in the center of the city, we tumbled out and let the
world know we were from Aquinas. In a mass formation on the
curb we gave the school cheers, to the edification of the Syracuse
police force. He fthe other member was sickj stood on the corner,
After a diligent search we found the biggest restaurant in the
town. It was hidden behind a horse car. fYes, they use horses as
motive power in the more progressive districts.J The food was
good, what there was of it. The proprietor remarked to his waiter,
"Sam, you'll have to get another loaf of bread tonightf'
At the armory we had almost as many rooters as the Brothers
could bring out. Even the Syracuse newspapers favored Aquinas
to win, due to its decisive victory over Oswego the preceding week.
However, the Fates had decreed otherwise. Fighting to the end,
the team went down to defeat. Somehow it seemed that the
"breaks" were against us. We'd make a perfect shot and it would
bounce off the rim. But excuses are not popular after a defeat.
We were beaten. Perhaps next year will tell a different story.
On the way back we were much quieter. Keyed to a high pitch
of hope by our successes, then thrown down in disappointment, we
were tired out. It was a sleeply crowd that rolled into the Erie
Station early Saturday morning. A blinding snowstorm was blow-
ing and we quickly dispersed to home and beds.

0 my N .September, 1927, a great event occurred in the
2 history of the Aquinas Institute and in the lives of
0 a large group of boys who will one day be known as
K f A1 1 1 the senior class of that renowned institution.
0 .But three short months ago, we had, with just
pride, received our grammar school diplomas and, to
our young minds, this was no small achievement.
if' Now we were about to begin a new work, to take
' one steg further in education, one launch ahead on
Lf! , .. the roa to success.
' When we entered Aquinas, we expected to hear
0 our advent heralded with acclaim but, alas, we dis-
1 covered that freshmen are classified as insignificant creatures who
try to make up in quantity what they lack in quality.
As time went on, some few of us grew to fear our teachers,
while the great majority of us learned that in them We had found
new and true friends. We envied the sophomores, who were rejoic-
ing in their escape from the bondage in which we were now held,
we sighed at the thought of the gulf which separated us from
juniordom, and we gazed in unconcealed admiration upon those
mighty lords, the seniors.
All such dreamings soon left us and we gradually became
accustomed to our environment, our studies grew easier and more
interesting, and we began to take a deep interest in all things
which concerned our school. We supported the dramatic club by
our sale of tickets for "Dulcy" and "Tweed1es", we gave assistance
to athletics by our attendance at the games and by our cheering,
which some might term "shrill shrieking", we added a large num-
ber of names to the honor roll each month.
Now, as the end of our year of initiation approaches, we look
back upon the fears we entertained about it and we realize that
most of them were groundless. Some of our number, it is true,
fell by the wayside, but they know now, when it is too late, that
the fault lies with them. Had they heeded the kind warnings of
their teachers, success would have been theirs.
In entering the port of sophomoredom, which is now opening
to admit us, we all hope that calm seas and smooth sailing await
us. The most diiiicult part of our high school journey is over.
Onward, classmates, on the trip which has for its goal the juniors'

"I knew him when-" can be truly said of the new President
ot' Aquinas Institute, The Rev. Joseph E. Grady, by a greater
number of alumni and former students, because, in his many years
as a member of the faculty of the old school, he links up the days
of the old Cathedral High School, and the Rochester Catholic High
School with the present Aquinas. As spiritual director of the
Alumni Association, he has made innumerable friends among those
who at one time sat at his feet, and among those who left the school
prior to his time. In addition to Father Grady's proved qualiiica-
tions to head the school to which the heartstrings of all former
Aquinas boys are tied, he has a deep understanding of the former
"boys," now many to manhood grown and having boys of their
own. His long association with the Alumni has made him one of
us and we rejoice that he now sits in the "Prexy's" chair.

When "Bill" McCarthy decided to cast his fortunes with
Niagara University, there was much conjecture on the part of the
Alumni as to his successor. The naming of "Mort" Leary to the
post was well received in alumni circles, for here was one of our
own fellow-graduates and a man who had proved in his career at
Aquinas that he was a student of scholastic accomplishments as
well as a born athlete. In the writer's opinion, Mort's greatest
asset in athletic contests was his ability to "get into the team-
work" and many a time he omitted an opportunity for personal
glory for the good of the team. This he has inculcated into the
teams he has been coaching. In regard to his first year's eiforts,
we might reecho what his predecessor, "Bill" McCarthy, said of
him recently: "I think Mort has done a great piece of work up
there and I'm squeezing for him."

As the members of the Aquinas Alumni rejoice in the increase
of its membership so do they mourn the loss of any of its number.
In attempting to rescue from drowning a member of the group
with whom he had gone to spend the week end, John Burns of the
class of '21 was drowned at Ivy Lea, Thousand Islands, on the
morning of August twenty-second, nineteen hundred twenty-seven.
Burns was in very truth a hero for he had reached his second year
at the Albany Law School by dint of patient and earnest effort and,
he who is willing to win an education by his own labor, is brave
beyond dispute. In J ohn's death the Alumni have lost an energetic
member and Rochester has lost one who promised to be a lawyer
of exceptional ability.
On April twelfth, nineteen hundred twenty-eight, Irving Rick-
ard of the class of '25 was summoned to his eternal home. Young
Rickard was in his third year of college and was rated as an
honor student at Holy Cross College. His teachers and schoolmates
at Aquinas are unsparing in their praise of this lad of exceptional
character and deeply religious spirit and all regret his loss to our
To the sorrowing members of the families of John Burns and
Irving Rickard, the Faculty and Alumni Association of Aquinas

He sat on the stone step,
his chin pushed into his
cupped hands, his eyes be-
speaking a puzzled mind, his
whole appearance reflecting
"Why so serious, Carl ?"
"Good afternoon, Father
Mooney. You are just the one
I want to see. I have been
reading 'Missions a Duty' and
it seems to me, Father, that
live cents a month is not very
much help to the missions. I
wish that I were a millionaire
so that I could give a thou-
sand dollars a month for such
a holy cause."
"Well, Carl, if every cath-
olic boy and girl of high
school age would give live
cents a month to the missions,
it would mean a large sum of
money for the missions."
TALKING ABOUT MULTI-MILLIONAIRES
Take an impossible case. Say that one of our multi-million-
aires spends a million dollars to build up the missions in China and
a hundred millions to build a railroad at home. Which of these in-
vestments is going to make him the happier?
As a matter of fact, there is no comparison. The hundred
million dollars will double, perhaps treble, itself in ten years or
twenty or thirty years. But then it stops suddenly. The under-
taker comes to the door and the multi-millionaire has to go off
with him. You see, the hundred million that went to the railroad
had only twenty or thirty years in which to Work, and you could
not reasonably expect more than it has given.
But the million that went to God-that is a very different
proposition. It will go on working for eternity. And nobody but
God, to Whom he gave it, can compute what it will mean for the
multi-millionaire in, Heaven. Oh, if he had only given the hundred
million to God and the million to the railroad!
A LETTER FROM A FRIEND OF THE MISSIONS
No multi-millionaire will ever read these linesg so why bother
about him 'I At any rate. we said that the case was impossible. Let
us get down to facts. Multi-millionaires have seven or more
. --'A' at 40 495
we eliev ees-
ciphers to their bank accounts. Let us strike out a few of them
and make our more modest investment.
The other day I received a letter from a small town three hun-
dred and more miles from Wall street. "Dear Father," it reads,
"here's my check for 51510.00 .......... I wish it were 510000, or
31,000.00, but it will help ........ "
Bless you, my dear fellow, that S510 of yours is worth more
than the hundred million we just spent on that railroad. And
some day our multi-millionaire will look terribly foolish when he
discovers that all his frenzied finance could not get as much out
of a hundred million as you have gotten out of ten.
Let us do a little financing for you,-in Chinese, of course,
for that ten dollars of yours is going to China. Ten dollars in gold
gives twenty-odd taels and twenty-odd taels give fifty something
tiao. Now Father Piggott, of Tsan-Dan-Kow, pays old Francis
Teng-Fu, his catechist, fifteen tiao per month-just enough to al-
low him to give up his sampan ferry and devote all his time to
teaching catechism. Your ten dollars, therefore, will tide him over
three months with a bit to spare.
And, my dear friend, you are never going to hear the end of
those ten dollars that we are sending out to Father Piggott by the
next mail. They will not have stopped working, not by a long way,
when the undertaker wheels you down the aisle, and the priest in
black vestments sprinkles Holy Water over you for the last time. .
Proving that sometimes ten is more than a hundred million.
No, not sometimes, but always, for multi-millionaires do not
read what we poor fellows write.

LMOST since the beginning of time itself, it seems,
there has been one class of persons who have been
I Q N considered the very embodiment of humor, the
source of much laughter, the originators of all
bw comedy, the very soul of jollity and goodfellowship.
We can, every one of us, picture just such a person
in our mind's eye-standing there in all the glory
of his new plaid suit and red tie from which a huge
"sparkler" blazes, hat pushed back over one ear, the
- . - remains of a half-digested "stogie" clenched be-
A' " ' tween his teeth, while he rocks his ample frame
back and forth in perfect time with the words which
he is uttering between the bursts of half-hysterical laughter of his
audience, for he is telling the latest traveling salesman joke and-
yes, you have guessed it, he is a traveling salesman.
It often happens that in his meanderings this jolly person
himself becomes the victim of a joke instead of the joker, but he
is always quick to appreciate the situation and to use it as a means
of entertainment for his next audience.
It is about just such an incident as this that I am going to tell
you. It was a cold, stormy December day in northern Wisconsin,
as all December days are in northern Wisconsin, but this was an
exceptionally cold and stormy day. The thermometer registered
eight below zero and the snow drifts were piled twelve feet high
along the main track of the W. R. 8a W. Railroad. For the last
two miles the two powerful moguls were sorely taxed Cas huge
moguls always are on cold, stormy days in northern Wisconsinl
to haul the three coaches bound for Riverport. Finally, at Tupper-
ville, they gave up the struggle and settled down to rest until the
plow should arrive the next morning. So what was a poor, strand-
ed, traveling salesman to do but climb down from his comfortable
seat in the train-and, with a traveling bag under each arm, ilounder
off into the drifts in search of a night's lodging. After what
seemed days of struggling and fioundering, the form of the Tupper-
ville Tavern lyes, this was after the eighteenth amendment was
passedj loomed out of the storm. With a mighty effort the ex-
hausted man took himself inside and engaged a room. It was about
seven o'clock in the evening and, being very tired from his long
walk through the drifts, he decided to "hit the hay." He slept on
and off fmostly offj until about ten o'clock. By this time he had
added the rug, three bath towels, the hall carpet and his own over-
coat to the list of bed coverings and still his body temperature was
well below the prescribed ninety-eight degrees. Being unable to
stand the cold any longer, he jumped out of bed and, wrapping his
coat about him ran down stairs into what was in the "good old
days" termed the bar, but which was now possessed of the digni-
fied title of lobby. In the lobby was the great stove which was
the one and only source of heat in the Tavern. As he stood there
shivering and shaking and trying to restore life to his frozen
limbs, the door leading from the hall opened and in walked a tall,
bearded individual. The collar of his great fur coat was turned
up around his frost-bitten ears, his face was blue with cold while

his beard was well caked with ice. Swinging his arms violently,
he stamped over to the stove where stood our salesman friend gaz-
ing in open-mouthed amazement. CI believe this is the usual man-
ner of showing amazement.l After a moment his amazement
changed to wonder and then to question. Finally, having recov-
ered his voice, he exclaimed, "Lord man: what room did you have ?"
It was not until the next morning that he learned that the
visitor of the previous night was "Doc" Winters, the village doctor,
who on his way home from a sick call stopped in to get warm. The
joke was on him and ever since he holds it among his best ten short

Q 1 51113
Science has played a very important part in the history of
marilkgnd. The world is much better off than it would be without
its e p.
This is the age of speed. The ocean liner, the automobile and
the airplane are witnesses to this fact. Without the discovery of
the steam engine where would these same ocean liners be? Without
the internal combustion engine used in the automobile how would
the automobile move at such speed as seventy or eighty miles an
hour? In the building of the airplane science met and conquered
many obstacles. First of all it was through science that a heavier-
than-air machine ever left the ground. In the second place a very
powerful, swift and light engine was necessary. Science sur-
mounted these difficulties by presenting to the world the many
different types of airplane motors which are on the market today.
There is less sickness in the world now than there ever was
before. Scientists, working in their laboratories, have accomplished
a deed worth far more than the amount held in the treasuries of
the world. We now have means with which to combat and destroy
the germs which killed millions of our forefathers. These germs,
too small to be seen, were sought under very powerful micro-
scopes which were devised by other scientists. Biologists, by com-
bating germs with other germs, have completely gained control
of certain diseases.
When we look about us in this world we see the effect of science
on almost everything. Even the sidewalks are but recent innova-
tions which were contributed by science. Now they are considered
a necessity of life. The lighting of our houses is one of the great
contributions of science. In fact, we cannot think of very many
things which have not been improved by science in one way or

I entered the ward and saw a man muttering to himself. I
turned to my guide and elevated my eyebrows. By this ingenius
method I conveyed to him that I was puzzled. He put his finger to
his lips. We moved closer. The mutterings became more audible:
"Four out of five have it, and I am afraid that I am not a
number five. You know that is the insidious thing about it. Your
best friend will not inform you." Imagine my embarrassment when
the waiter spoke to me in English. "Ames in Iowa made Twenty

Bahih ann Goliath
The good book tells us that David met Golaith and killed him
with a stone. Such a crude way to dispose of a gentleman! Suppose
the stone missed, or Goliath had a head like a sophomore? What a
mess it would have been! A sure-kill, I think, would have been to
promote a marriage between Goliath and a lady whom, for lack of
a suitable name, we will call Mrs. Goliath.
Of course, I am not trying to insinuate that this union would
have undone Goliath, but here's what would have happened:
Mrs. Goliath used Gold Medal fiour, and one day while in a
jealous rage-Golaith did prefer blondes-she ate one of the flour
bagsbi Thus she had the inside story of "Eventually-Why not
That day she went to the Insurance Ofiice and increased
Goliath's insurance. Then she went home and induced him to sign
the papers. The next day she ordered new windows to be put in
her house. There were twelve windows, but she ordered enough
sash weights for thirteen windows. Goliath demanded the reason
for this extravagance.
"I am going to make money with them," answered the wife.
"Well, don't let it go to your head."
"Not mine, dearie, yours."
That night while Goliath slept--. The next day Mrs. Goliath
collected some insurance. The men came to fix the windows, and
found enough sash weights for twelve windows.

Edgar Allen Poe is, in my estimation, the most imaginative
genius that America has ever produced. By some critics he is
considered the greatest penman of the New World. Those people
are usually Europeans. We, the great Americans, the people who
are making the World safe for Democracy and ignoring our great
men, frown when Poe is mentioned. We refuse to acknowledge
that he could be a genius in spite of his habits. We will slander
him instead of praising himg mock him instead of quoting himg
revile him instead of defending him.
I would attempt to defend him, if I did not think that it would
be rank bathos to even write his name with my pen. Think of it!
A high school student trying to defend Poe-Poe whose works
speak for themselves wherever bigotry and narrow-mindnedness
does not stifle justice!
All that I can do is to echo with posterity that Poe is the most
abused man in American Literature. That, and laugh at the critics
who attempt to criticise Him.

SALESMANSHIP AND ADVERTISING
RUCHESTER, N. Y. 3
fi G 2
An education is something' that must last a lifetime. Few persons can afford
to spend the necessary time and money a second time because a wrong first
choice of a school has resulted in an inadequate training.
The Rochester Business Institute provides the kind of business training that
brings success to its studentsg it provides the assurance of advancment for those
who complete its comprehensive, thoroughly practical courses. Its record of more
than sixty-four years of continuous growth and usefulness to the large community
it serves, and the rapid rise to positions of leadership by so many of its 44,000
alumni, are convincing reasons why the Rochester Business Institute should be
the choice of young men and women who are seeking desirable and key positions
in the business world.
For catalog or bulletins describing the different courses or
further information, call or write the Registrar, Rochester

A careful reading of the following excerpt from an Editorial in
the British Electrical Review tells forcefully how a British Trades
Union delegation accounts for the high standards of living that
prevail in America:
"Whether it be a question of electlicity supply, coal mines, or
telephone service, the people who think, and are not, as the
Americans say, 'dead from the neck up,' are unanimously con-
cerned today in settling once and for all the vexed question of
"The high standard of living of all classes in the United
States is evident to the most casual observer, and the recent
delegation of British Trade Unions saw that the reason lay
largely in the extensive use of machinery and labor-saving de-
, vices and the initiative displayed in American business organi-
"The rapid advance of the light and power industry in the
United States is the envy of every foreign country, and the
benefit of such a development is found in the solution of labor
problems. If human beings are made the controllers of power
instead of the generators, their earning power is so much in-
creased as to make it possible to pay them not only a living
wage, but a cultural wage.
"Private initiative is at the foundation of America's pros-
perity today and although there exist many government
agencies to protect the public against abuses, this is quite a
different thing from Government owership or subsidy."
