CLASS OFFICERS President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Philip O’Loughlin Harold Collins Donald Principe Lawrence Unger THE ARETE BOARD Front Row, Left to Right: Paul Statt, Richard Hughes, Harold Collins, Louis Welch, Maurice Farrell. Second Row: Frank Culotta, Philip Dwyer, Gene Anselmi, Bernard Kennedy. Back Row: Maurice Keefe, Willis Lourette, Bertram Tremer. fourteen Ackroyd, Thomas P. Tom is a romantic indi¬ vidual with a propensity for wandering. He is the only man in the class that the study of the Renais¬ sance influenced to such an extent that he attempted to make our school corri¬ dors resemble Venice. This he accomplished by alight¬ ing upon a water fountain. Tom has also featured as an actor and a musician while at Aquinas. Good Luck, Tom! Anselemi, Eugene W. We have been with“Pete” for several years and we say in all sincerity that we have never known a more genial and carefree com¬ panion than this “Man of a Thousand Faces.” He is recognized throughout the length and breadth of Aquinas Institute as the greatest ocarina virtuoso in our midst. His success in life is assured. Ansini, John L. “Jawn " is the proud pos¬ sessor of the longest beard in the senior class. The House of David will soon have another recruit. Meanwhile, Jawn goes his merry way astounding Father O’Donnell with his original discoveries in the realms of Intermediate. In appearance he resembles the ideal man of affairs and the business world is due for a shock when John hits it. Barnes, Donaed A. Blonde, wavy hair, a cheery smile, a huge ap¬ petite and a great brain, that’s Don! Who could not hear the girls gasp as our hero, his golden curls wav¬ ing in the wind, ran out on the gridiron that memor¬ able November afternoon to turn back the Albion steam roller? Hit the world as you hit the line, Don, and you will surely reach your goal. Bartholmay, James J. James hails from the village of ferris-wheels, dip-the-dips, escaped py¬ thons and divers other thrills. The billow kissed Sea Breeze air may have added a gloss to his black hair; maybe it even put that permanent there, we don’t know, but it certain¬ ly hasn’t hardened his sly, knowing smile nor affect¬ ed his big heart. Jim is aiming at forestry — a handy vocation—. Beahan, Francis J. Gaze upon the example of a conservative and dig¬ nified Senior! But, from all reports I believe he is quite a basket-ball player and only his modesty keeps him from telling of his ex¬ ploits on the court. Aside from this, he is a student of the commercial depart¬ ment and president of the business English Class. We are sorry to see him leave, but you can’t keep a good man down. fifteen Bell, James W. In this gentleman we have an ardent disciple of the god Morpheus. If Jim ever failed to fall asleep in English class, we’d call a doctor at once. But aside from this, Jim is a fine fel¬ low. A more friendly and cheerful student cannot be found in Aquinas. We are positive he’ll make good and we hope he won’t for¬ get us when he takes Mr. Gannett’s position at the office of the Democrat and Chronicle. Beahan, Tracy M. Here is the proof of “Still Water Runs Deep.” Tracy believes in being seen not heard and as a result he always manages to get his work done in the right way at the right time. He is an ideal class¬ mate and companion and will be missed by us all when we leave Aquinas. Bianchi, Joseph C. If the spirit of Pegasus has any relation to the senior class it is because of Joe’s Chevy. Ask the tri¬ umvir: Ansini, Bianchi, Rotoli. They know that Pegasus stands in awe when Joe’s coupe (1920) passes all cars along Dew¬ ey Ave. Besides being a good mechanic, Joe’s a sin¬ cere friend and a great sport. Keep the old Faith¬ ful in shape, Joe, for some¬ day it will ride you to suc¬ cess. Blain, John A. Here we have a basket¬ ball player and scholar in one. His ability and skill on the court were exhibited in the intra-mural games and on the Senior team. He has occasionally displayed in¬ telligence in school, by giv¬ ing really startling an¬ swers to the surprise of all even of Mr. O’Connell. All in all he is a true friend and we sincerely hope that he will succeed. So long, Blondie; Keep your ac¬ counts balanced. Boehm, Richard J. Dick is one of those few quiet lads who go through high-school trying not to attract the attention of his classmates. He bids fair to become a rival of Bell as he can sleep in class with his eyes open. Dick’s fa¬ vorite sports are swim¬ ming and running—run¬ ning because he’s always in the cafeteria first. In his chosen field of work, as a capitalist and manufac¬ turer, we know he will suc¬ ceed and run first. Adios, Dick. Bommattei, Ralph L. When Caesar said, “Let me have men about me that are fat,” he surely knew whereof he spoke. Ralph, the epitome of rotundity, is an ideal companion. He has two ambitions! One is to some day hang out a shiny new shingle with an M.D. ofi it: the other is to drive an Austin. If his work in Aquinas is any criterion, he will certainly achieve both. • j. J t pstrum sixteen Bragg, Charles A. Charles is the boy who gave a convincing and practical demonstration of spontaneous combustion. He realizes now that foun¬ tain pens and matches were never meant for the same pocket. His favorite indoor sport is French. Besides, he is an automotive enthu¬ siast and his ancient Over¬ land was many times the means to an end. Notre Dame is the lucky college. Brown, Fred J. Be nonchalant — that’s “Fred”. He absolutely re¬ fuses to be worried and cannot see any reason for taking the world too seri¬ ously. His weaknesses are piano playing and dancing. However, when Fred sets his mind on doing some¬ thing, it is always done well. Success attend you at every turn, Fred! Byrnes, Lloyd M. Here’s a fellow whose versatility is the envy of all his classmates. Byrnes is just as sure of himself on the gridiron as he is on the basket-ball court and those who witnessed the Junior-Senior court fray will remember that he is a player of no mean ability. His valiant efforts to mas¬ ter the intricate art of bookkeeping aroused the admiration of his com¬ rades. Here’s wishing you luck, Byrnes. Callan, Edward J. Ed plays in our orches¬ tra and band. He was re¬ cently overcome by sur¬ prise when a certain senior returned a loan of tweny- five cents to him. Callan, Anselmi and Kennedy form a well known triumvirate at Aquinas. Ed aspires to the realms of music teach¬ er and excellence in tick¬ ling his piccolo keys. You have our best wishes, Ed, and we look forward to a world wide broadcast in the near future. Callan, Gerald T. Here is Jerry—that se¬ rene, unassuming chap we have seen so often in our corridors. Jerry can ac¬ complish wonders with his pleasing smile. He and Norb Young are never sep¬ arated. Every afternoon they can be seen slowly tracing their steps to the Lake Avenue car line. May you always greet the world with a smile, Jerry! Callan, John F. Gaze upon the man with the most innocent expres¬ sion in the school, espe¬ cially when addressed by Father Wurzer. His abil¬ ity as a negro imperson¬ ator makes him eligible for a position with the Broad¬ way minstrels. Whenever you want Callan, look for Cullotta. The two are in¬ separable. Cal takes nei¬ ther time nor teachers se¬ riously. Farewell, Cal, you leave a big vacancy at Aquinas and in the hearts of the Aquinas faculty members. seventeen Callari, Michael J. Behold the “Mysterious Mose” of the Trig class. His ability to just sit and think all the time about pleasant things and then pass his exam makes us all envy him and wish we had his ability to learn by ab¬ sorption. Here’s to your success and may you never know failure, Mike! Casey, Francis P. “Sarge” with his part¬ ner, TomAckroyd, is Aqui¬ nas’ contribution to the world of aesthetic dancing. Isadora Duncan, herself, would have good reason to be envious could she but behold our Francis flitting about the corridors in im¬ itation of the figures on Grecian urns. He is a mem¬ ber of the well-known Pret¬ zel Club, wherein he ex¬ cels all others. Casey is a cartoonist and will con¬ tinue in this field after graduation. A 2 fi n 11 c m eighteen Callari, Louis S. “Louie” is about the smallest member of the Senior class and often (much to his embarrass¬ ment) is mistaken for a freshman. He works hard and advances rapidly and, after all, this counts more than size. Take Napoleon, for instance. Well, keep up the good work, Louie. We look to big things from our diminutive member. Coffey, Eugene L. Two years ago, Aquinas opened its portals to Gene, and we certainly are glad that he entered our school. This lad is a rather quiet and congenial sort of per¬ son and as are all people of this type, he is the ter¬ ror of his class. Sports are his weakness and if base¬ ball disappeared, Gene would die. May you live to be President of Spencer- port, Gene! Collins, J. Harold Introducing the Vice- President of the Senior Class. Chubby little rascal, isn’t he? Yotty is a rather quiet but all-observing stu¬ dent who has enough in¬ testinal fortitude to wear puppy flannels to school. And can this boy rattle the drum sticks? We know you’ll make good, Yotty. Be sure and drum up your business. Corbett, Edward P. “Corby” is the boy with the aptitude for caricature. A disciple of the new school, his modernistic ten¬ dencies reveal themselves in the exquisite creations with which he manages to draw down upon himself the wrath of several con¬ noisseurs, notably Mr. Martin. Keep singing through life, Corby, and win the world as you have our hearts with your sun¬ ny smile and your song. Coveny, Edward T. “Ed” may be sub-center on the Irish five but we are sure Mr. Leary has un¬ derestimated the true abil¬ ity of this tall, powerful man. Whether on the court or in the class-room, Ed plays second to none in vivacity and friendliness. The seniors haven’t yet recovered from the shock caused by Ed’s carrying a brief-case this year. What is the world coming to? Maybe it’s a result of the Parent-Teachers’ meeting. Only Ed knows. Culotta, Frank E. Here is a fellow who is a cheerleader, an actor and a debater. The trouble is that he debates only with Father Wurzer and he al¬ ways loses for some reason or other. He has a secret passion—to form the al¬ phabet out of pretzels. Frank plans to be a doctor and, although we’d hate to have him work on us, we wish him the best of luck. Au revoir, “Squirrel”. Darcy, Andrew J. With an engaging per¬ sonality and a sunny dis¬ position “Darsi” has en¬ deared himself to the hearts of his class-mates. His popularity among his fellow students is assured through his efforts to make himself agreeable. In life “Darsi” intends to be of service to humanity in his life’s work as a doctor. Success a-plenty, Andy! DePutter, Maurice J. The proud possessor of the cherubic countenance beaming alongside is none other than the Ridge Road thunderbolt the pride and joy of the celery country. When, togged in his little white panties, he steps forth to lead a cheer, there are few feminine hearts which do not flutter. The night of the C.B.A. game at the Armory, the gasps of admiration were heard at the four corners. He cxcells also in athletics, being the miniature pee- wee basketball champ of the school. He’ll tell you so himself! DeRoleer, Joseph V. Quiet,contemplative and unassuming—that is Joe. But pep him up and he’s got more kick than pre¬ war stuff. In spite of him¬ self, Joe is an English scholar and has a big stand- in with Father Morgan. Go to it, Joe, anyone who can get 95% from Father Mor¬ gan can’t go wrong. DiGaetano, John J. “Diggy” needs no intro¬ duction. At all times dur¬ ing the day this lad may be seen plowing his way thru the groups of stu¬ dents. He is noted for his vigorous slaps on the back. In the English class he seems to be an entirely dif¬ ferent fellow and is known to be Father Morgan’s star at memorizing classical poems. He is a likeable chap and has won his way into our hearts. Vale, Johnnie. nineteen Dobbins, Thomas E. Tom claims to be a wo¬ man hater. What a loss for the ladies! But Tom does not need a woman to spur him on. We’ve always won¬ dered how he manages to answer questions from the midst of a sound sleep. Tom says he is going to be an architect and we know he’ll be a good one. So long, Tom. Donahue, James V. Jim is the true exempli¬ fication of a Christian gen¬ tleman. Although Father Dwyer sometimes catches him napping in English class, his alertness and cool-headedness coupled with his genial nature carry him far. It is with sincere wishes for your success that we bid you farewell, Jim. Dwyer, Philip J. Behold our Phil, gloom dispeller and joy radiator. H i s incidental humor brightens many a gloomy day. His hobby is report¬ ing for Religion class two minutes late every day and let us not forget he is a member of Mr. Martin’s 3:15 class. Phil is an able orator and we hope some day he will deliver an or¬ ation that will make Cicero look down with awe. So long, and good luck, Phil. Embury, Robert E. This quiet but witty gen¬ tleman’s secret passion is the Interwoven Pair. That’s why we expect Bob to be a sock salesman some day. If he can sell his merchan¬ dise as easily as he has made his way into our hearts, he’ll be a howling success; and we know he’ll be just that. Bon voyage, Bob, and remember that everybody has two feet! Erdle, Frederick J. In this vest pocket edi¬ tion, we find a real “gloom buster.” His wit and comic skits make Fred a real fa¬ vorite. Since he is the proud owner of a Ford convertible, his next ambi¬ tion is to learn how to tie a bow tie and to Become accustomed to girls. We hope you do both, Fred, and maybe Villanova will teach you yet loftier aims. Farrell, Maurice J. Maurice has distin¬ guished himself in various ways at Aquinas but fore¬ most among his achieve¬ ments are his triumphs in baseball and his business ventures. As a baseball pitcher, he has aided our team to no slight extent. His contribution to this book in the form of adver¬ tisements stand as a trib¬ ute to his school and class spirit. We confidently pre¬ dict a successful future for you, Maurice. twenty Fischette, Robert M. If you see what appears to be a big bear running loose around the northeast section of the city, be not affrighted. It’s probably only Bob clad in his big coat. Though quiet out¬ wardly, Bob is full of ac¬ tivity within. His class work attests this. He is an active member of LeCercle Foche, and is especially adept at Mathematics. Good luck, Bob. Flynn, John M. When we say that Red is all aflame we do not nec¬ essarily refer to his hair. Someone said that the sweet sound of Cicero’s translations is responsible for his drowsiness in Latin Class. We all regard Red as the ideal friend and his generous Irish smile will help him along in life. We know you’ll be a great suc¬ cess, Red, so carry on. Foery, Frank R. After four years we are convinced that Frank is really bashful. But this does not decrease his pop¬ ularity with his class¬ mates. His blush seems to be a magnet drawing friendship to him. Being so powerful in mind and character, he cannot but overcome all obstacles in his way. We hope your en¬ gineering feats are as suc¬ cessful as your sc hool work, Frank. Gallivan, John A. If we can judge the met¬ ropolis of Mount Morris by its gift to Aquinas, our opinion is of the highest degree; for, although Jack has been with us but a year, he has made all of us his friends. Moreover, we understand that Jack is a prominent social light (rurally). If he shines as brilliantly in business as he does on the dance floor, we are confident of his success. Geyer, Delbert J. Mr. Hurley has a great friend in Del and we sup¬ pose that is because they have a common interest, Latin. Del is a good fellow and a fine debator. In fact a student has yet to win a debate from him. Go to it, Del, you may be arguing on the floor of the United States Senate yet. Gillooly, John F. Paul Poiret has nothing- on our John. After four years as a connoisseur of fashion he is at last ready to step forth and take his place as dictator. He is partial to orange ties (he should be with a name like Gillooly) so if the fad sweeps the country, be as¬ sured John had something to do with it Good luck, Johnnie. Our loss is Sears- Roebuck’s gain. twenty-one Goetz, Jack G. We present to you the John Gilbert of the Aqui¬ nas Institute, Rochester’s “Select School for high school boys.” Well dressed, he appears to his class¬ mates as the up-to-date student. His humor and friendliness are outstand¬ ing. More than once Jack has shown his ability to draw. We hope to see your work in the art galleries yet, Jack. Gorczynski, Sigmund R. Sig is another silent per¬ son. He probably acquired the habit of silence from his golfing. Silence is a ne¬ cessity of good golf and Sig is no dub at the game. Now that Bobby Jones has turned pro there is a great chance for you, Sig. We may yet see you win the National Open. Makeevery stroke count and we know you’ll break par on the course of life. Griffin, Frank M. Here is another one of those he-men from the wild and woolly West. Frank’s presence is surely a great factor in helping to make our school life a pleasant one, and when he’s gone Aquinas will miss him (so will the Lake Avenue car line). Au revoir, Frank. Don’t crash in on Broad¬ way too quickly:—they may not like it. Gross, Wilfrid J. This ever smiling blond has proven a genial com¬ panion even in the darkest hour. He is known for his easy going manner and his inability to become ruffled however adverse the cir¬ cumstances. Many times his knowledge of German has proved a boon to his classmates. Wilfrid, in all your days to come the Seniors wish you Gluck Auf! Gugino, George A. Behold the man whom studies never bother. George scarcely looks at a book; at least, that’s what he tells us. But his marks tell us a different story— especially his English marks. George intends to go to Alabama U. and we know that he will literally burn up the place. So long, George, we shall miss you. Groh, Donald M. Here is the self-styled hero of the Boy Scouts and the director of these noble lads’ attempts at drama. Don has taken part in sev¬ eral Aquinas plays and has proved himself a worthy actor. He would rather di¬ rect a Scout play than be President of the U. S. A. Keep up the good work, Don, you may be a scout¬ master some day. twcnty-tivo Gunn, George E. Aquinas football team missed a great quarter¬ back when this little man of muscle failed to go out for the team. He is as ac¬ tive and hard-hitting as any of the big men of the school. What Mike lacks in weight he makes up in spirit. With such a char¬ acter we look for great things from this man. Look to your laurels, Ca- rideo and Freedman! Hall, William E. Here’s our amateur (and how amateur) chemist who likes to do his experiments in English class, much to Father Morgan’s disgust. Bill is rather quiet and we haven’t seen anything yet that could make him move fast. Some distant day, Bill is going to surprise the world of science by an¬ nouncing that H.-O is com¬ posed of hydrogen and ox¬ ygen. Au revoir, Hira. Hannan, Edward J. An industrious student whose geniality and good nature coupled with a quiet reserve have made him a friend of every member of our Class is Eddie. Al¬ though his name is not al¬ ways to be found on the honor roll, Hannan has truly achieved success and has earned a place deep in the heart of every teacher in Aquinas. Keep plugging, Eddie! Hayes, Richard H. Dick is another student who likes to mystify his teachers and make them think he’s dumb; but we know otherwise. He is well- liked by his classmates and the students of a school on Lake Avenue. Dick is rather quiet but very wit¬ ty. He likes to swim (es¬ pecially in the school pool) and we know he’ll do his bit to see that future Aqui¬ nas boys enjoy the pool also. Heller, Henry J. Greece has a great deal to boast of since it’s from there that Hank hails.Fre¬ quently he is seen on Lake Avenue in his car. We wonder why. Hank plans to go to college and we know he’ll be another “country lad who made good.” So long, Hank, and don’t let the rattles of that McCormack reaper (Es¬ sex) bother you. Hepp, John E. John is the essential part of Mr. Martin’s 3:15 peri¬ od. Day by day his smile as well as his corridor racket is becoming better known to us all. Here is a member of our dramatic club — and what a deaf aunt he makes! John is very ambitious but so was Caesar. So long, John,keep on spreading the good cheer and see if we care. twenty-three Hoffman, Carl J. We understand that Carl is going to be hired by the Five and Dime to demon¬ strate Yo-Yos (what a wicked Yo-Yo he swings!) Father Morgan nearly died when he caught Carl smoking on the train to Syracuse. Notre Dame has claimed this student and we know that his mates will choose him the 1932 captain of its Yo-Yo team. So long, Carl. Hoffman, Norbert N. “Nibbs’ ” ready smile and quick wit have gained for him a high place in the hearts of his classmates. His witty speeches as Chairman of the Commer¬ cial Class did much to in¬ crease this popularity. “Nibbs” was one of the outstanding players in the Intra-Mural league, and his steady nerve and sure eye brought more than one victory to his team. May your eye never falter, Nibbs. Hoover, Embert J. Here we have one of the most versatile young men in the school. Besides be¬ ing a creditable baseball, basketball and ping-pong player, he excels many oth¬ ers in studies. His record at Aquinas proves him to be of the highest type (anyone on the Saint Thomas Club must be). Emo is planning to be an engineer and build bridges. God guide your footsteps, Emo! Huber, Theodore C. Can you imagine any¬ one’s getting hot when thrown in the snow? Ask Ted if it isn’t possible. But seriously, he is an ardent lover of sports and a good student. We hope he will remember us when he is head of the Rochester D. P.W. Ted, some of us may want jobs. We’ll see you subsequently. Hudson, Charles F. We have many questions to ask about “Chuck.” Will he ever lose his smile? Does he ever look into that great stack of books he carries? What is the story about the “cutest little babe”? He is one of the “Three Muske¬ teers” of glorious memory. Carry this remembrance with you, Chuck. Horn, Robert E. Aquinas Institute has sheltered Bob for the past four years and now regret¬ fully turns its affable charge over to St. Mi¬ chael’s College. His one failing is throwing erasers at Keenahan at the most unexpected times. All in all, Bob is a fine fellow and as we bid him adieu, we hope that he advances in life as fast as he does in the lunch line. huenty-four Keeling, Gordon A. Besides being Mike Leary’s only rival for the Yo-Yo championship, Gor¬ die is an expert at snappy remarks. Many a good laugh has he given us. Gordie has aspirations of becoming an aeronautical engineer. If he knows his planes as well as his Yo- Yo, he cannot but make a success of his work. On leaving, we say good luck and happy landings. Keenahan, Gerard E. Jerry is very punctual— he never misses being late at least once a week. We’ll have to excuse him though —look where he comes f r o m. Even though he hails from the sticks, he succeeds in making the hon¬ or roll regularly. Evident¬ ly Father Dwyer’s words last year found a response in him for he claims he is going to St. Michael’s Col¬ lege. Good luck, Gerard. Kelly, Daniel J. Dan Kelly’s long sojourn with the never-to-be-for- gotten Mr. Ripley should entitle him to become a civics teacher. But Dan has ambitions in higher and more glorious fields. Those of his friends who were privileged to be pres¬ ent at his noon-hour lec¬ tures on chemistry, physics and astronomy know that Dan is destined to become an Einstein or a Galileo. Good-bye, Dan, and may you someday subjugate that blond cowlick. Hughes, Richard J. Hail to our actor extra¬ ordinary! Can anyone for¬ get his fainting act in the Senior Play? No locked doors can keep Dick from attaining success.Wethink he has a weakness for pretzels if his studying German me ans anything. Keep going, Dick, your name may yet be seen on Broadway. Junker, Edward W. This is our one and only walking machine shop. He has a hobby of collecting and making models of all kinds, with which he helped or hindered Father Kohl, last year, in the instruc¬ tion of the physics class. He is a jolly good fellow, although he has been called suave and smooth. Some day we may ride in an airplane designed by our famous “Ned,” aero¬ nautical engineer, honor graduate of Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Keefe, Maurice J. “Marblehead” has ambi¬ tions along mechanical lines. His great aim in life is to obtain a degree in mechanical engineering. But his immediate aim seems to be that of draw¬ ing cartoons in Mr. O’Con¬ nell’s class, so that faculty member can destroy them. He has displayed through¬ out the year a weakness for peanuts of the fourteen cents a pound variety. Maybe he will become a peanut vendor? Kelly, Eugene T. “Pooch” was one of the cheerleaders who instilled moral support for the team into the student body in the form of cheers. A tech¬ nical course at Renssalaer Polytechnic Institute is the next stop for “Pooch.” He was the despair of Father Newcomb last year in Physics by his tempera¬ mental displays of genius and then his inevitable slumps. May the best of luck be yours, Pooch! Kirk mire, William J. Some day perhaps we will again have the pleas¬ ure of meeting our fellow classmate when we are the fathers of his history stu¬ dents, for Bill intends to teach history. He is like the other members of the famous (or infamous) trio, a generous friend, a help¬ ful classmate and an all- around good fellow who gets himself and others in¬ to trouble by his pranks. There is where his smile helps him. Kelly, Victor F. “Lefty” is one of the fa¬ vored few who had the privilege of belonging to the science club. He is a true scientist for, verily, woman hath no charms for him, in spite of his wavy locks. Added to his exten¬ sive work in chemistry, he finds time to play on the baseball team and to top a few golf balls occasion¬ ally. “Lefty” is interested in physical education and he is planning to study it at the Ithaca School of Physical Education. Kennedy, J. Bernard Bernie plans to take an M.D. course at the Univer¬ sity of Michigan. In ten years we can all see Bernie as calm, cool and collected as he has always been while in our midst. Bernie is a wizard with the sax, but we won’t hold that against him as he has played an active part in the orchestra. He is also a polished actor having tak¬ en part in our school plays. Good-bye, Bernie, and the best of luck to you! Klein, Robert J. One of the triumvirate of Klem, Klein and Kirk- mire, Incorpolated, whose chief business is borrow¬ ing. He is a generous, good- natured fellow who laughs at trouble. He is never without a cheery smile, and that smile is never more engaging than when he has but a few cents. We know he will succeed in whatever he attempts for he possesses the admirable quality of persistence. Klem, Justin J. Here is the first member of the famous “K” trio. His pet hobby is to be seen behind the wheel of a very ancient automobile, which does run now and then. He is quiet but we think that is just a pose. He is known as the little man with the big voice. Long live the K.K.K. trio! HSISCSpSffTEm twenty-six LaForce, Martin G. Quiet and imperturbable, Marty is known and liked by every one. His prowess on the tennis courts is eclipsed only by another of his outstanding accom¬ plishments, his ability to draw forth melodious mu¬ sic from his violin while all about him confusion reigns. Marty is above all else a good fellow and every member of the class of ’31 wishes him the best of luck. LaLonde, Thomas K. Here we have the hand¬ some orator who has held the school spellbound on several occasions. Some day in the very near future we shall read of his suc¬ cess on the gridiron at Notre Dame, or will it be as the conqueror of Bobby Jones? Whatever he may become, Aquinas and his classmates know that we are giving to the world a man in every sense of the word. Vale, Tom, leave some of the pretzels for the rest of us. Laramie, II. Charlie is one of the few redheaded seniors whose hair gives an indication of their nationality. Perhaps his very red hair accounts for his ready wit and cheery smile. He is always seen in the company of Fischette but whether this is his fault or not we do not know. He broke his arm twice in the past year. This and an appendicitis operation caused us to miss him just sixteen days all told. Think of that for grit! You have our best wishes, Chuck. Lacombe, John J. Jack is an ardent bicycle enthusiast, and his ardor for this pastime has re¬ vealed to him the treas¬ ures of the open road. An agreeable disposition has been instrumental in gain¬ ing for him many friends. We all join heartily in wishing John success in the field that he has chosen as his life’s work, that of linotype operator. Klingler, Joseph J. Hail to the dispeller of gloom—“Red” Klingler. He may be seen any noon in the corridors laughing and joking with his friends. His red hair makes him easy to see from a dis¬ tance. Joe is a crack am¬ ateur chemist. He intends to go to Mechanics Insti¬ tute where we know he will rise to untold heights by scholarship and good-fel¬ lowship. Knights, Harold N. You should see this boy smile! And the good part about it is that it is con¬ tagious. Along with his smile go ready wit and quick thinking. That’s why he escapes the 3:15 period so common to many stu¬ dents. Keep going, Harry, you and failure will never keep company. Maloy, W. James The Adonis of the Aqui¬ nas Institute, whose chief interests in life seem to be making others smile and combing his hair — that’s “Sonny Jim.” He is an ac¬ complished basketball star although not on the team. His pet hobby is falling- asleep in history class but now and then he rises to the occasion with the cor¬ rect answer. We know he will mount to the top of the business world if he continues to smile. McCurn, Henry P. Such popularity as Mac enjoys certainly must be deserved. His frankness and generosity have won him a host of friends dur¬ ing his stay at Aquinas. But besides being a thor¬ oughly likeable fellow, Mac has ambitions and abili¬ ties. Who has not heard of his experiments in the realm of mechanics and the remarkable combina¬ tions of pistons and spark plugs he has constructed? Good-bye, Harry and may success be yours! Lippa, Nicholas D. The Senior Class of the Aquinas Institute may well be proud of this member. Though slow and deliber¬ ate in all his actions? Nick always manages to attain his end. He possesses a philosophical air and this will play a great part in winning a name for him. We are convinced that Nick possesses a powerful mind as we continually see him deep in thought strolling along the corridors. Good luck, Nick! Lourette, Willis E. Willie might be consid¬ ered the ideal senior in more ways than one. He cultivates a sophisticated and nonchalant air which is the envy of most of us. Studies never seem to bother him to any great extent and he has distin¬ guished himself as a foot¬ ball plaver of no mean ability. Willie intends to become a doctor, and we feel sure that success a- waits him. Lowenguth, Charles C. Here he is, girls, look him over. Chuck’s one of the best models of Adonis in our class and we’re proud of him. In class he is the silent man with the active brain and his class¬ mates are hard put to keep up with him. He’s bound to succeed if that industry continues. The best of luck to you Chuck. Hail to the future sur¬ geon whose name will some day be known throughout the medical world! Louis was something of a terror in his junior term, endan¬ gering the lives of the stu¬ dent body with a decrepit Chrysler. But in the past year the “Duke” settled down to an existence that was almost dignified, and he has become a shining- light in Father Morgan’s English Class. Lucchesi, Louis J. twenty-eight Mele, Joseph M. Behold the one and only Joe Mele—honor student, Latin scholar, actor, in¬ ventor, musician and klep¬ tomaniac. Tall figure, laughing eyes, an unfor- getable smile — that’s “Thurston,’’the inimitable. We feel that the senior class owes him a vote of thanks for the entertain¬ ment he has provided in the past four years. Vive Valeque! Miller, A. Jerome Handsome, pleasant and scholarly, Jerry is one of the most popular members of the Senior Class. His ability to make friends, however, extends beyond our corridors for Jerry cuts a wide swathe in so¬ cial circles, and is quite a favorite with the fair sex. And if the breaking of re¬ torts in the laboratory can be considered a criterion of advance merit in chem¬ istry, Jerry is destined to reach the heights of suc¬ cess. O’Connor, John H. Jack is the boy who just manages to greet the 8:55 bell each morning. It is his proud boast that in his high school career he has never varied the time of his arrival by more than a few seconds. John im¬ presses the casual observer a s rather lackadaisical. But this is only an out- ward manifestation of John’s amiable, easy going nature. Enjoy.your sleep while you can, John! McDonald, Robert J. Folks, here’s the original gigolo of Aquinas. If you muzzled Bob, he would sing through his feet. For four years we have tried to catch him in a studious mood but failure stalked our efforts. “Mac” is noted for his wise cracks. We are going to warn Rudy Vallee right away, “Mac”, so hur¬ ry up! McHugh, Joseph W. We see Joe in all his glory when he is guarding the mouth of a 4x6 hockey goal from flying pucks. His chief diversion in school is gassing everyone on the third floor with the solu¬ tions he mixes in Father Newxomb’s lab. We hear that he caused a panic among the girls over on Lake Avenue the other af¬ ternoon, the day when he did not have to stay for Mr. Martin. We may in some future day see Joe’s name in the headlines as the New York Rangers Goalie. Lots of luck, Joe. McLain, Thomas H. Here he is, the light of the senior class. “Red” blows no loud horn, but his presence is felt. A flash on the basketball court and the most steadfast of friends-that’s Tom. Fresh¬ men have learned to revere this mighty “bouncer.” He leans toward a technical career. Look out, engineers, here he comes! twenty-nine O’Laughlin, Philip S. Introducing the Presi¬ dent of the Senior Class. “Phil” has served his term quite successfully. His cyr- ly locks ai ' e sad entangle¬ ments for the fair sex.“Jo” Mele and“PhiT’might well open up a beauty parlor. These, two wavy-haired Apollos would be powerful personal advertisements for “wavier wool while you wait.” Phil’s big hobby is swimming, and his other- half is Don Principe. We know Phil will be a suc¬ cess, for he has already started on this road. His pride and joy is the orig¬ inal McCormick’s reaper which he guides thru the lamp-lit streets of our dear city. O’Neill, Martin C. Meet “Bud” the young- man who has done such good work as center on the basketball team. He is the shining light of Father Brien’s history class and many a recitation has been enlivened by his brilliant wit. “Bud” amazed all of us by being on the Honor Roll twice in succession and we are confident he will merit a place on life’s Honor Roll, too. O’Shaughnessy, John A. John is one of those strong silent men whose handsome profiles mark minds noteworthy for their fertility and imaginative powers. A business career is John’s objective in life and we are sure that in a few years Aquinas will number among its alumni, John O’Shaughnessy, head of one of Rochester’s larg¬ est business corporations. Parrinello, James J. If you are in a nice quiet restful spot and suddenly hear a lot of noise, that’s Jack. If you are on the i ' e- ceiving end of a slap on the back, that’s Jack. In fact, whenever there is anything like a sudden disturbance in the laws of nature, you can be sure that Jack is at the bottom of it. However, we don’t mind and we say “more power to you.” Pheilsiiieter, Ralph F. Here is, without doubt, the most far-seeing mem¬ ber of the class, if altitude means anything. “Pheily” indulges in a three-man, soccer game, on the style of miniature golf, every noon. Very pleasant com¬ pany, “Pheily” is a hunter and fisher, when hobbying. He never cared for Latin, strangely enough, and he barely hurdled the 65% mark in the Ciceronian handicap. Ralph’s big aim in life is on the end of his rifle. Pierce, Joseph W. Talk about a “piccolo Pete,” Joe certainly has the talent when it comes to playing a flute and a pic¬ colo. For four years he has been an outstanding play¬ er in our orchestra and band. As a gentleman and student, he is admired by us all. If hard work is the secret of success, Joe’s is assured. --pn I iX ' u-y l mgr g s nDtiflifnnniV thirty Principe, Donald G. Gaze upon this noble countenance and try to grasp the fact that you are looking at the portrait of our class secretary. But it is not therein that his fame lies. Indeed no! It is his astonishing capacityfor cake (chocolate preferred) that moves us to point him out with righteous pride. Although his “Bigger and Better Cake Movement was fruitless, we’re hoping for better things from him. May your capacity in¬ crease, Donald! Reichart, Edward C. Here we have the stal¬ wart man of nature who simply loathes hats. Jazz is his weakest point. More than once the strains of his tenor guitar floating softly from his window, have caused some passing stranger to pause and then hurl the nearest loose ob¬ ject. But don’t be discour¬ aged “Reich”, we can stand it if you can. Rice, Edward J. Ed is another Lake Ave¬ nue Sheik and buddy of Hank Werth and George Hoare. These three com¬ prise that trio known as “Les Trois Musketeers.” Occasionally he takes a book home, but what he does with it will never be known, except by himself. We’re pulling for you any¬ way, Ed, and when you have reached the pinnacle of success don’t forget Aquinas and your class of “31”. Rotoli, Rocco G. A big frame, black wavy hair, a tinkling laugh, a member of the Saint Thom¬ as Club,—that’s our “Tul- ly”. His pet hobby is the manufacturing of original odors by which process he keeps the “lab” much to himself. He can always be seen either with Ansini, or helping Bianchi pick up stray parts for his“Lizzy.” “Tully’Teaves us in a blaze of glory and we all confi¬ dently await his further success. Ryan, Edward J. Ed is one-half of a two piece symphony orchestra, which provides luncheon music in the cafeteria. He and “Cat” Callan are mu¬ sicians and bird imitators of exceptional ability. Ed had aspirations to be a lawyer but something changed his mind. Stick to your guns, Ed, Chicago has its possibilities. Ryan, Walter A. Bob’s smiling counte¬ nance has been a fixture at Aquinas for the last four years, and it is with the deepest regret that his friends bid him adieu. His great weakness is dramat¬ ics and what a figure he cut in the senior play! Bob is headed for Notre Dame and may he have continu¬ ous success! He may be a real judge yet! thirty-one Secrist, Nelson W. “Bulldog-” is a high light of the Vergil class and an enjoyable classmate. He is a sculptor and often brings his masterpieces to school, carrying them away minus an ear or a nose. Nelson is trying hard to make the Saint Thomas Club and we hope he gets there. Nelson is bound to succeed for he exhibits the necessary qualities in his school life. Remember that great quo¬ tation from Hungerdun- ger, Bulldog,” Scha-Micha- Dicha!” (which, when translated into the vernac¬ ular means: “Scha-Micha- Dicha!”) Smarsh, Joseph V. Smarsh is one of the more staid members of the senior class. He undoubt¬ edly has a secret ambition to become a pretzel bender, for throughout the course of the year, he contributed in a great measure to the support of MissGougarty’s pretzel tray. It’s all in fun, Joe, so long! Smith, Robert E. Seufert, Bernard A. Bernie is one of the handful of our class who disavows all attraction to the fair sex. Here lies the solution to his calm char¬ acter. His experience as a frequent honor-roll stu¬ dent proves his determina¬ tion to succeed. He spends his leisure in studying archaeology—the study of ancient civilizations—and in performing scientific experiments. Bernie hopes to explain the Einstein theo ry in the near future. We’re with you, Bernie, may you succeed! Bob is out for the posi¬ tion as shortstop in the Big League, but father says no. Gum is one of Bob’s failings, and during general study, Bob chersu- sanchersus. Maybe he will be the future gum tester for Wrigley, who knows? Anyway, Bob is a likeable fellow and an ardent base¬ ball fan. Scholand, Harry G. Almost everyone has made the acquaintance of the obliging librarian at Edgerton Park. His ready assistance is always avail¬ able to those desiring books. “Specs” is highly regarded by the friends whom he numbers among his circle. Harry intends to swell the ranks of those from Aquinas interested in aviation and let us not for¬ get he possesses real abil¬ ity in designing models of airplanes. Simmons, Robert F. Behold the original “Sunny Boy,” the intrepid captain of our hockey team and mathematician extra¬ ordinary. It is believed that Bob is the only one to have solved the problem ending with the question “What was the Engineer’s name”? With this as a start in life, he can’t fail. Remember your old friends when you’re president, Robert. thirty-two Stahlbrodt, John A. In Johnnie we have a gallant friend, always cheerful, ever ready with a witty remark that enlivens every class he attends. It is said that in all his four years he has never bought a pad. This promises well, John, if you can manage big business in the same way. He likes basketball and football and evidently has a weakness for whisk¬ ers. Good luck to you, Johnnie. Stanton, Richard G. The four years which Dick has spent at Aquinas have not been wasted. His ambition is to be a master electrican and no doubt the Mechanics Institute will be proud to have such a graduate. Dick is a promising basketball play¬ er and a valuable addition to the home room team. He is known and loved by all his classmates. Steadiness of purpose is his chief characteristic. Statt, Paul T. Introducing Statt, an¬ other member of our foot¬ ball squad. We find in him a real friend and regular fellow. Paul is eligible for the “House of David” by virtue of his heavy beard and his having taken part in the Passion Play. He was the one who made the formal protest against the “extra period.” With such courage of your convic¬ tions, Paul, you will be a howling success as an ar¬ chitect designing modern¬ istic buildings. Stokes, Joseph F. Joe is a member of the old school. In fact he drives a Model T (between tows) and none of the seniors will be satisfied until a race is staged between Joe’s Ford and Bianchi’s Chevy to determine the slowest man in Aquinas. But, all joking aside, Joe is a hard worker and a loyal friend and we expect great things from him. Street, Donald T. Once Don’s mind is made no one, not even Father Morgan, can change his opinions. Besides, Don is an able debator —- that’s probably due to his stern character. Don faithfully carries out the old saying that there is “time for play and time for work.” He de¬ sires strongly to be an en¬ gineer and has planned to take his course at Villa- nova. If a strong determi¬ nate will mean anything at all, Don will plan strong and sturdy bridges in the near future. Stupkiewicz, Leon A. “Stup” would be one of Aquinas’ fighting Irish if he were Irish and did his fighting for Aquinas. His fighting is done for the Polish Filarets. We hear that Stup aspires to be the Polish Camera. Perfect that right and take care of those legs, Stup, for we hope to see you on top of the heap within a few years. thirty-three Tierney, Philip H. Pete is one of the small men of the class, who has a most cheerful and pleas¬ ant personality. Who can ever forget Pete with his great “shiek” trousers and scarlet windbreaker? We are looking forward to graduation night to see how he looks when he is shaved. Wishing you the best of luck and asking you to fill the orangeade glasses to the brim at Windsor this summer, we say, “Good-bye”. Unger, Lawrence E. Behold our pride — one of the most learned men of the Senior Class. Saint Thomas Club? He is an annual member. Chemis¬ try is his secret passion. He is our class treasurer and his books balance! The paths of glory recognize “Larry” and they would indeed welcome him as an engineer. SWARTZENBERG, ROBERT J. Here we have the mili¬ tary luminary of the class. “Swartzy” is related to the great strategist Count Felix Von Swartzenberg of the German Army. How well we rember “Swartzy” marshaling his forces for a raid on the candy count¬ er. He has easily bombard¬ ed his way into our hearts with his sunny smile. He has his mind set on avia¬ tion and we expect him to fly as high as he did at Aquinas. Tiernan, Richard J. Dick has ambitions to be a doctor, continuing his studies at the U. of R. He likes swimming and is a great basketball, football and baseball player. His smile and laugh have made real friends of all his classmates. He is one of our suburban commuters and is known as the Pride of Charlotte. May we meet you again, Dick. Tomczak, Hiram T. Here is one of those un¬ heralded athletes who are seen but not heard. Never¬ theless, in spite of his reti¬ cence, everyone who has seen him has marvelled at. his thrilling exhibitions of skill and power, as well as sportsmanship, on both the court and the diamond. He is headed for the peak of success, nothing can hin¬ der him. Tremer, Bertram F. Bert has a peculiar laugh of his own that gives him away under any cir¬ cumstance, especially with Father Morgan. Bert may have learned some poetry this year after all. You couldn’t find a better all- around fellow in Aquinas. As for being a math wiz¬ ard, Bert takes the cake. Success, pal! thirty-four Van Epps, Clarence E. We bid this noble athlete gcod-bye. In football and baseball we know him well. Ward, the victim of his pu¬ gilistic efforts will testify that he is a versatile ath¬ lete. We remember, too, his lectures replete in sub¬ tlety and profundity. Clair, even though an athlete, has a passion for strong black cigars. De¬ spite this, engineering is his aim. Carry on, “Van”, your batting average is 1000 with us. VanVechten, Charles H. Chuck is one of the more quiet members of the class, but he is a real friend as many students can testify. He is one of the “Commit¬ tee of Five” from Aquinas who invaded the Nazareth College Tea. Mechanical Engineering is Chuck’s dish. He is planning to at¬ tend the U. of R. where he will add to the glory Aqui¬ nas has already achieved at this institution of learn¬ ing. Vigna, Anthony F. Students like Tony can be truthfully called model students. The honor roll would not be complete without his name. He is quiet, good-natured and ever the gentleman. Chem¬ istry is his pet hobby and many of his leisure hours at home are spent in his private laboratory. Tony is also an able canoeist who enjoys gliding the wa¬ ters in his egg-shaped craft. May his success be great! Wagner, William W. Almost everyone has met Bill—good natured, easy¬ going and optimistic. No one has ever yet seen Bill perturbed. Nevertheless, Bill has often had his name on our annals of hon¬ or. We suspect that his success hinges on the fact that he is a walking ency¬ clopedia. Someone has said that he would make a good lawyer—well, good luck, Bill! Auf Wiedersehen! Ward, Joseph H. Meet the 1931 model of flaming youth. Joe is a great hockey player and a good student (when he studies). He is especially conversant with page fifty of our Religion book. If you ever saw ‘Spare” on skates you would forget all about Howie Morenz. Mush on, Joe, and if you put the punch into life that you do into Clair Van- Epps, you’ll be a great hit. Weinman, Frank G. In Frank we have a martyr who has the repu¬ tation of telling the truth at any cost even in the face of an unprepared Latin lesson and an irate teacher. The star of Home Room 323 basketball team, he is a quiet, studious fel¬ low and a good companion whose ambitions reach to Notre Dame and basket¬ ball. Keep up that reputa¬ tion, Frank. thrirty-five Welch, Louis C. If you’ve ever heard of Aquinas Hockey tea m, you’ve heard of Louis. He’s so fast on skates that his ankles smoke. But in an ordinary pair of shoes, Louis reminds one of Rip Van Winkle. However, there is not a student more congenial or intelligent in the whole Institute. So long, Louis, we’ll soon be seeing your picture in the photogravure section. Werth, Henry R. This handsome lad is one of the luminaries of our Commercial Class. It is said that he once burned out the bearings on one of the Aquinas typewriters. He is an expert accountant yet he never takes a book home, so we are at a loss to know how he does it. Well “Au Revoir”, Hank, and may success to the ut¬ most be yours! Wissman, Joseph A. Look — curls; They’re natural, too. We are proud of him. Yet we regret to say that without Bell or Zapf he is helpless. He specializes in the s n o w- bank shampoo. Outside of office hours, he does a lit¬ tle studying and we look for his ultimate success in the business world. Good luck, Joe. Yount, Henry A. Hank says that he is go¬ ing to be a lawyer and what he says he means. His only regret on leaving Aquinas is that he will be deprived of the pleasure of attending Mr. Martin’s night club in Room 306. Good luck, Hank, but be sure to pick the right horses or your pockets may be empty. Zapf, . Edward J. Ed is another of those athletes who appear nat¬ ural only when they are skimming over the glisten¬ ing ice with a hockey stick in their hands. Woe to the puck, when Eddie pursues it! He has learned to apply the principles of hockey to the class room and is al¬ ways pushing forward to the goal. As a shoe sales¬ man, he fits well. Zimber, Paul F. Zim is an indomitable business man. We foresee inPaulie a future commer¬ cial genius, who uses his head for something other than a hat-rack. He is a charter member of the Commercial Class, never angry, never downcast,but always with a cheerful smile for everyone. As a bookkeeper, he is the pride of Mr. O’Connell. Good luck, Paul, and long may vou remember the Class of ’31. ■H thirty-six The first nomination to the Aquinas Nature Club goes to the one who is last in name but not in deed. When Ed is not engaged in school work, he can be seen out in the open air, hiking in summer and playing hockey in winter. Next year Ed intends to take up forestry at Syra¬ cuse University. He has a high ambition. Home There is scarcely any word which means more to the human soul than the word “Home.” It is a word that is pleasant to hear, because it brings back priceless memories of the distant past. It is needless to say that the home is not a new institution. It existed when the first men and women lived upon this earth. Men saw the need of shelter. They built some kind of covering of thatch or else dug a cave into the earth. These dwellings afterwards grew into better places of abode as man’s pride and interest increased for a better place of habitation. Now we have beautiful mansions and humble houses in which men live. From caves and huts to luxurious castles and dwellings fit for kings, comes man when time has worked her miracles of change. But after all, can we call these things home? Can we give the name home, to a beautiful house standing on a hill, surrounded by magnificent gardens? We can, if within that dwelling there live a mother, a father and children all abiding in love, peace, and hap¬ piness. If as a family they are devoted to one another, if they see that their happiness depends upon the sacrifices they must make, there will be peace in that home. Peace and happiness reign in a home if the grace of God abides in it. The tired father, returning after a day’s hard labor, finds joy and happiness at home. The son or daughter who has been abroad for years, find peace and contentment at home. They find some¬ thing there which no other place can offer. They find love. Man’s dwelling may have changed during the course of the centuries but the life and relationship of the family in the home have not changed. What made up a home in ancient times, makes up one today. The love of a mother, the guardianship of a father, the devotion of children will make any house a happy home. Nicholas Lippa thirty-seven Aquinas UR SCHOOL is frequently referred to by its friends as “The Select School” and, although this term is sometimes misconstrued and utilized ironically, it remains as a fact that The Aquinas Institute of Rochester is a select school. It is a superior school. Nor is this claim without foundation for the manifold elements inducing this preeminence are clearly evident whether the institution be considered absolutely or relatively. Of these two methods, the former is, without a doubt, not only more just but also the more consistent; but, since relativity is the accepted standard of substantiating claims in the present day, it will serve the purpose, although inadequately, to briefly compare Aquinas, in itself and in its composite elements—the curriculum, the faculty, the student body and the alumni with similar organi¬ zations in other schools. In this aspect, where can there be found, in this vicinity, another boys’ high school which teaches the doctrine of Jesus Christ, the sole science whose scope is not restricted by the finite limits of this mortal earth, the only study which instructs man in the salvation of his soul which, after all, is man’s chief aim and foremost duty in life? In which other secondary school is there a teaching organi¬ zation which parallels the Aquinas faculty in the sincere interest manifested in each student, personally? Where else does there exist such a remarkable degree of mutual co-operation between faculty and student body? Taken collectively, which other alumni organiza¬ tion can boast of the moral integrity and intellectual superiority that characterizes the Aquinas graduates? Inevitably, the replies to these questions are wanting and in view of this evidence, who can dispute the right of Aquinas to the title, “The Select School?” Certainly these factors are most significant in determining the true greatness of any school and it is through them that the world judges the school; but when Aquinas students have bidden “Vale” to their Alma Mater and their daily personal contact with her has ceased, they will not remember the school as a superior school by these qualities. To them, the fondest remembrance of the school will be the recollection of the Aquinas spirit. The Aquinas spirit is an inadequate term employed to embrace all the attributes peculiar to Aquinas, inadequate because mere words are incapable of portraying the sentiments which find their origin only in the hearts of those who have passed the four most important years of their life within the sheltering portals of this edifice which is hal¬ lowed by the Real Presence of the Divine Master and Teacher. It is, primarily, a spirit of co-operation produced by similar ties of religion and ideals as well as by the sympathetic attitude of all the students. It is, moreover, a spirit of charity, of fraternity which appears in the class room and on the athletic field, in extra curri¬ cular activities and, not of least importance, in personal contacts. Permeating every activity it acts as a cement of union and, in its prime effect, it labels every Aquinas student, wherever he may be, as a true Catholic gentleman. Robert Simmons School of Technology VILLANOVA COLLEGE VILLANOVA, PA. April 17, 1931. Rev. Dr. Joseph E. Grady, Principal, The Aquinas Institute of Rochester. Reverend and dear Father: In connection with our customary report on the academic standing of your alumni, we hope It Is not out of order for us to offer you our congratulations upon the reputation they have so firmly established for your school. The certificate of Aquinas Institute is an absolute guarantee that its recipient is not only a young man of the finest instincts and fully developed Christian character, who has done satis¬ factory work in the fields we prescribe, but also truly fitted, in temperament and aptitude, for college work in the branch he seeks to enter. The presence in our classes of a group of such exceptional young men stimulates both the professors and the student body, and aids greatly in raising our institution to the plane we desire for it. We particularly appreciate your continued interest in your young men while In college, and we shall strive to deserve the flattering regard you have been so good as to express for our efforts in their behalf. Host sincerely yours. H£ ur lUtcljtiisfjop’s Jrnimp ®albs “Boys, we are again assembled here in the presence of our Divine Teacher for the study of that all important subject of self.” With these words, His Grace, Archbishop Hickey has for many Fri¬ days introduced his simple but inspiring talks to the Senior Class in the quiet little Aquinas Chapel. It has been a rare privilege which the Senior Class has enjoyed in having had the opportunity of having His Grace with us for those Friday conferences. Under the direction of the Archbishop we have been led upon a study of self from a solid viewpoint. We have been shown that, since at most, this life can last but a few years and since the way in which we live it determines our entire future existence—eternity, —the most important thing in life is to live so that we will merit eternal happiness. With this fundamental truth ever in mind, we have set out on the study of self so that we may live in such a way that we will attain this coveted possession. At this time in life our minds and wills are in the formative state. Like the proverbial branch, as they are inclined, so will they be in later life. Therefore it is most important that in this critical period we should be most careful how our minds and wills are formed. To assist us in this study we have formed an analogy be¬ tween our wills and a garden, and planted therein, flowers—heav¬ enly flowers such as red roses, white lilies and timid purple violets. The red roses which we have planted symbolize our love for our Divine Master, a love which will grow so intense and fervid that we would give up everything, even life itself rather than offend Him. Like Joyce Kilmer, we must realize that our sole purpose in life is to love God so passionately that nothing else matters. We have also planted pure white lilies with tender care in our garden. How fittingly the lily represents that Christian virtue of Chastity? How, like Chastity, must the lily be protected against foul odors, excessive temperatures and touch or it will become tarnished and ugly! Surely our lily is the flower upon which we lavish the most care, for it is the one flower that sets off our garden. Then, here and there among the other flowers we have planted a tiny purple flower, so unassuming and timid one would hardly notice it. Ah! but it is one of the most fragrant flowers in our garden. Its perfume permeates as does the odor of sanctity. It is the little purple violet which symbolizes self denial. We are obliged to deny ourselves illegitimate things but in order to do this we must have good control over ourselves. So to be sure that we shall be able to deny ourselves illegal things we practise, as it were, by denying our senses things that are lawful. In this way we can also acquire great merit. Thus under the skillful guidance of our Archbishop we have planted a garden of flowers—spiritual flowers, red roses of love, white lilies of purity and purple violets of self denial. It is true we have only planted the seeds but the soil is fertile and well cultivated and the plants are already springing up and ere long they will bring forth the most beautiful flowers imaginable. Gerard Keenahan g rptember 193 0 September 2. Back in the same old rut and those freshmen are smaller than ever. September 5. The Saint Thomas Club members receive their awards. The Right Reverend Bishop wants all the boys to join this club but some of us have decided it would be a pretty expensive prop¬ osition for the school authorities if they had to get us all sweat¬ ers. I wonder if our Bishop thought of that. September 9. It is just beginning to dawn upon us that we are seniors now. Funny how a thing like that will slip your mind. September 16. Seems as if we never had vacation. Wonder when we’ll have a holiday. September 29. First reports. Almost every one of us used the alibi, “Well, you see, they haven’t got around to know us yet.

Cullinan of 733 Genesee Street; earned preliminary certificate at Saint Joseph’s Collegiate Institute, Buffalo; a mem¬ ber of Saint Monica’s Parish. Francis Xavier began his high school studies the following day in a room on the third floor of the Cathedral school. His work was well done and while he carefully attended to his school duties he found time to enjoy sports and draw cartoons of local interest. In the Arete of 1921 we find him in collaboration with Delos Bedard illus¬ trating the Diary of a Cat nor has it yet slipped our memory with what unconcealed mirth these freshmen prepared this their first contribution to the year book. Success rewarded the boy’s scholastic efforts and September, 1921, saw him a sophomore of more than average ability. His talent was evidenced in the written assignment rather than in oral recita¬ tion in which he never ventured an answer unless to a personal call. His paper in Regents’ Second Year English particularly attracted the attention of the Director of the English Department, Father Grady. Complying with the direction to write a composition on “Your Favorite Color Scheme Giving Reasons for Your Choice” this young lad of fifteen wrote: “My favorite color scheme is purple and gold because it symbolizes royalty. I like to think of it as typifying the royalty of Christ.” With this sublimely simple introduction, he broke into an exquisite prose poem on the Man of Sorrows as envi¬ sioned in the purpling dawn and the Risen Christ as reflected in the golden sunset. Everywhere was present the idea that one road alone leads to true royalty, the Via Crucis. Few college men could have written so well but Francis was writing from the fullness of a heart whose every throb was a fervent act of love of the Divine Victim of the Cross. In his third and fourth years other powers of the young lad were manifest. He was a musician, an actor, an orator of highly persua¬ sive speech. With his classmates and friends he was arbiter in all difficulties because of his discerning judgment and fairness of deci¬ sion. Best of all, he was an able baseball player and what American youth is not taken captive by a hero of our National Sport? When Francis reached home attired for the first time in the school baseball suit, we are told that his dad and he danced through the house for joy. His mother’s feelings can best be judged by her telling William a few years later not to try for the team as she could not go through again the anxiety she experienced when Francis tried. But Bill finally obtained consent and again the family on Genesee Street cele¬ brated a member’s winning an Aquinas uniform. It was during his senior year thaf Francis came across a copy of the Life of Saint Aloysius while exploring the attic in his home. The heroism of this young Jesuit confirmed him in his earlier ideas of the Order and when , little more than a year later, he left for the Jesuit Novitiate, he asked his mother to give this treasured book to John Connelly. John lived near the Cullinan home and for four years he and Francis had traveled to and from school together. To¬ gether they had made their daily visit to Lady Chapel; together they had prepared their school work and talked over all school affairs and we do not hesitate to say that by no other, outside his immediate family, was Francis’ departure for Saint Andrew’s-on-the-Hudson so keenly felt. The 1924 year book bears testimony to Francis’ abil¬ ity in sketching and composition and June found him chosen Vale¬ dictorian of his class. Alma Mater expected big things from this promising son nor were her most sanguine hopes unfulfilled. As a freshman he made a good record at Holy Cross and he was at Saint Andrew’s-on-the- Hudscn but a short time before Walter and Maurice Miller wrote to us of his marked spirituality. How they gloried in his unques¬ tionable asceticism and how proudly did they announce that Francis had been selected to deliver the Saint Stanislaus Sermon! For a time Francis had shown that youthful interest in his Alma Mater which had marked his year at Worcester but it soon occurred to him that here was one more way of practicing self-denial and he ap¬ parently lost all interest in Aquinas and even turned a deaf ear to the reports of baseball and basketball teams. Of his life of prayer, penance and union with God during his years in the Society of Jesus, all have read in the different copies of Jesuit Seminary News and in The Captain of His Soul. It is the story of one who consistently sought true royalty by the road he himself decided one must take to reach it. May he from his heavenly home look down upon the Alma Mater he so loyally cherished and smile at her loving tribute to him, his favorite color scheme—Purple and Gold. ill We wonder Why God to us has given a seraph, Seraph lover of the Crucified? How a boy of eager thought and vision Learned in silence to subdue youth’s pride? We wonder At his constancy in striving Ever upward to the saints’ high plane; Never counting cost in pain or labor— To be Christ’s alone he reckoned gain. We wonder Who will dare to take his challenge. Try perfection as a cherished goal, Daily emulating Aloysius, Swiftly earning high place on Heaven’s roll? ■rfr to • r ft. jw im y y T III! l m % r ' WiS ' t tf M 4, j . 4 c , " ' «» f 1 ' fl £) s t-i-cr ' C ' IjH tot -V ' V ■ %7 m j % » - tr IS A BL.I ... »% ' » ..• v , ■■• ' » r ' V ' v .

Things were happening in the small world of three hundred boys. In fact they wondered if they had not been transported to an entirely different planet. Former scenes and companions had vanished and here they were at Aquinas entering upon a new and very important period of life—that of secondary education. These boys found themselves in a large auditorium listening to the reading of rules and regulations. They huddled together in little groups, forcing laughs and trying to look calm before the upper classmen, but through their heads were whirling thoughts that always come to those starting a new mode of life—“How am I going to like this change?”, “Will I get along with the people with whom I come in contact?” and other such rambling thoughts. As the names of the students were read off for the various homerooms, little groups of boys left the auditorium, keeping together for fear of losing their way. They found themselves with other boys some of whom they knew, some of whom they did not. Once inside the classroom they settled themselves for the morn¬ ing. Suddenly a loud bell sounded and everyone began to move,— just where, no one seemed to know. This was “change of classes” and the freshman learned that such a change takes place every forty-five minutes, though not in quite the same way as it did on opening day. Gradually the freshman came out of his shell, dropped his inferiority complex and in no time was dazzling the astonished soph with a brilliant line of repartee to his best insults. As the frosh settled down into their ordinary mode of school life they made many new friends and entered, wholeheartedly, into the various activities. The Aquinas Freshmen were always there to praise and cheer when anything important was going on and many were active par¬ ticipants. Three of the freshmen were on the bench as subs in the football game. The Frosh also had a basketball team which defeated the St. Andrew’s Academics but lost a hard game with the Sopho¬ mores of our own fair school. At least two of the players, judging from their excellent work, ought to be big stars before they leave the “Maroon and White”. Another field of endeavor that interested Aquinas Freshmen, judging from the number that tried out for parts in “Shavings,” is dramatics. The freshmen showed their in¬ terest in band and orchestra work by either participating in or supporting with their good will this particular form of activity. In studies, too, frosh were at the fore with many on the honor roll each month. And now at the end of a most enjoyable term, when the novelty of the change from grammar school has worn off and the freshmen have replaced their naivete with a mask of sophistication, they can look forward to September when thev will be THE Sophomores and the newcomers, only those objects of scorn—Freshmen.

The 2000th anniversary of the birth of Publius Virgilius Maro, better known to his friends, (and they are innumerable) as Virgil, caused the Latinists of all the civilized world, to pause in their work, and set aside this day of October fifteenth that they might pay just tribute to the beloved poet, this greatest of bards, whose immortal influence has ever permeated the classic atmosphere of literature. The Virgil class of Aquinas had the honor to participate in this universal reverence. Accordingly, three of its members were se¬ lected, who composed essays, treating of three varied phases of Virgil: his life, his works, and his influence. They delivered these before the student body, on the historic day. The excellence of the themes, and the importance of the occasion justify their publication. It is our privilege, then, to dedicate with respect, this section of our year book to Publius Virgilius Maro. Philip J. Dwyer ($ i rot i ft i ft P it m fifty-three ®fje liik of tftrgtl N the north OF Italy, in Andes, a small village in the municipality of Mantua, exactly two thousand years ago, the fifteenth of October, there was born the greatest of Roman poets, Publius Virgilius Maro. His father was of humble birth, though possibly he was of Roman origin. He was the hired assistant of a wealthy man, Magius, by name. By his industry and persistency, he gained the hand of Magius’ daugh¬ ter, Magia Pollia. He bought large tracts of woodland and settled down to the culture of bees. Virgil, a boy of delicate health, spent his early years on his father ' s estate, roaming in the hills, gaining a great knowledge of trees and plants. It was in his early youth that he conceived the arpbition of his later life, the writing an epic poem on the founding of Rome. It was among the trees and flowers that he learned to love nature and he kept this love all through his life. We find evidence of it in all his works. It was from his father that he learned his knowledge of bee culture which he later utilized in his Georgies which are still used as a text book on the culture of bees. He was educated for a political career like all Roman boys. On account of his delicate health, he never practised, but turned to philosophy and Greek. He is said to have appeared only once as an advocate. He began his education at Mantua and continued it at Cremona. He studied reading, writing, composition, rhetoric and philosophy. He next went to Rome and studied philosophy and rhet¬ oric under Epidius who was the tutor of the great Augustus. He studied Greek and Greek Literature under Parthenius at Naples, the center of Greek culture in Italy. While at Naples, he studied the Epicurean philosophy, a philosophy built upon the principle “eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die,” under Siron, the most popular professor of the time. In the year 41 B. C. while Virgil was living on his father’s estate, writing his Eclogues, pastoral poems which established his reputa¬ tion as a poet and made him famous at Rome, his estate was seized by the soldiers of Augustus, as their reward for their work in the war. As Cremona had sided with the Republicans, the enemies of Augustus, it was confiscated but as it was not large enough for the soldiers, Mantua also was confiscated, Virgil’s estate along with the rest. Virgil went to Rome and through the efforts of Gallus, Varius and Maecenas, his estate was restored. The recovery of his possessions led to the formation of a life long friendship between Virgil and Maecenas, a noble Etruscan and a patron of the arts, who kept around him the greatest men of the day. After publishing his Eclogues, Virgil began his Georgies, the greatest didactic poems. They are four books on husbandry, writ¬ ten not so much to teach the people how to farm their land, as to arouse in the wealthy a love and a desire for farming. As this was in accordance with the aims cf Augustus it was probably from him that Virgil received the idea to write them. It took seven years for Virgil to complete the Georgies as he desired them, and as a result they are the most finished poems of Virgil and of the Latin language. It was after the defeat of Antony at Actium, that Virgil began the Aeneid, that great epic poem on the founding of Rome. The fame of the poem spread far and wide before it was finished. Augustus, while in Spain asked that a copy of it be sent him. He returned before it was completed and, at his request, Virgil con¬ sented to read a portion of it to him and his sister, Octavia. As Virgil read the lines in praise of Octavia’s son, Marcellus, who had recently died, Octavia fainted and on her recovery ordered that 10,000 sesterces or 500 dollars, be given Virgil for each of the eigh¬ teen lines. When the Aeneid was finished though not polished, Virgil set cut for Greece to spend several years in traveling and in completing the Aeneid. Augustus met him at Athens and persuaded him to return with him to Italy. He suffered much from seasickness and contracted a fever while he was visiting Megara. He died at Brun- disium on September twenty-first, 19 B. C. He had meant to complete the Aeneid and then devote the rest of his life to philosophy but death cut short his plans. He left orders that the Aeneid should be burned, but at the command of Augustus it was saved and published. Through all of Virgil’s poetry, there is a sadness which sprang from his nature, the melancholy of a contemplative mind. He never married. He passed through a voluptuous age unsoiled so that the Neapolitans called him ‘the Maiden’. There is a legend that Saint Paul on visiting Virgil’s tomb wept and said “What a man would I have made thee, had I met thee when thou wert alive!” Virgil was liked and respected by everyone in his own day and the greatness of his works has endeared him to all who came after him. Tennyson styled him “Wielder of the stateliest measure ever moulded by the lips of man.” Nelson Secrist m m m ®f)C torp of tfje eneib FTEK the battle of Troy, Aeneas with the remnant of the conquered Trojans went forth in quest of a new home. They stopped at Crete where Aeneas learned in a dream that Hesperia was to be the site of their new home. On their journey thither, their fleet was washed on the coast of Africa near Car¬ thage, by a fierce storm created by vengeful Juno. Aeneas and his companions approach Dido who had built this won¬ derful city. They were received with hospitality by the queen who took a liking to Aeneas and the Trojans began to forget their mis- sion in their round of revelry. Jupiter then sent Mercury, the mes¬ senger of the gods, to remind Aeneas of his duty and they make preparations to start out. As they depart, Dido burns herself on a funeral pile because Aeneas would not return her love. At length they arrive at Aeneas’ visioned destination. While his men are making the camp, Aeneas seeks out the abode of the Sibyl and begs her to help him confer with his dead father. She gives him directions and after they are fulfilled she accompanies him on his visit to the infernal regions. The entrance was located near Vesuvius in the cave of Avernus. Entering, they cross the black river, Cocytus, in a ferry and on the other side among those who had fallen victims of unrequited love. Aeneas descries the form of Dido. He tries to comfort her, saying that he left Carthage in obedience to the command of Jove. Continuing, he catches a glimpse, here and there, of those who are being punished for their evil deeds. But now it was time to turn from these melancholy regions and seek the city of the blessed. They passed a middle tract of darkness and came upon the Elysian Fields where the happy lived in content. Here dwelled those who had died for their country’s cause, holy men, poets who had uttered thoughts worthy of Apollo and those who had rendered some service to mankind. He soon found his father who was overjoyed at seeing him and who predicted that Aeneas would win a war and also a bride and that he would found a Trojan state from which would rise the great Roman Empire. On their journey back to the earth Aeneas promised the Sibyl that he would build a temple to her in gratitude for all she had done to help him. Aeneas now joined his men and set sail, casting anchor a few days later at the mouth of the Tiber. He found out that Latinus was the king of the country and after exchanging gifts and greet¬ ings, a friendly alliance was formed between them. Juno, seeing the prosperity of the Trojans, felt her old hatred revive and took measures to hinder Aeneas’ success in this country. She incited some of the king’s subjects to oppose having strangers in their coun¬ try. This went so far as to cause war. Turnus, a suitor for Lavinia’s hand, was recognized by all as a leader of the people. He was joined by Mezentius, a brave and able soldier but of detestable cruelty. With him came his son Lausus, a generous youth worthy of a better sire. Camilla, a huntress and warrior after the fashion of the Amazons, came with her band of mounted followers, including a select number of her own sex. Aeneas with the aid of Father Tiber, the god of the stream, ad¬ vances to Evander, an Arcadian chief and an enemy of Turnus and secures his consent to join forces against Turnus. During Aeneas’ absence, Turnus attacks the Trojans but fails to draw the latter on to the field of battle. Aeneas, however, soon arrives with his Etrurian allies and both armies begin to fight in earnest. Battle after battle ensues, resulting in the deaths of Mezentius, Camilla and Turnus and a complete victory for the Trojans. Soon after, Aeneas married Lavina, his promised bride and his son lulus found¬ ed Alba Longa which became the birthplace of Romulus and Remus and the cradle of Rome. JOSEPH Mele At the Center of Rome’s Literary Circle Virgil is reciting a poem, perhaps one of the Georgies, in which he celebrates the husbandman, or a part of the Aeneid, written to the glory of Rome, while laurel-crowned Horace awaits a chance to read an ode or two. The bald-headed man at the right is Maecenas, a lover of the arts and letters and a generous man of wealth whose name has ever since been a synonym for a patron of poets and painters. “Virgil ' s; influence on uhsiequent literature S BROTHER LEO in his ‘History of English Liter¬ ature’ so aptly puts it, we may liken world literature to any great stream such as the Mississippi which, rising probably in some small creek or dwarfed lake, flows onward to the sea gathering might and volume from its many tributaries—some great rivers al¬ most like itself; others but little brooks—and at length at its mouth it has reached its maximum of size and power. Continuing our analogy, but at this point differing from Brother Leo, we may say that Virgil is to world literature as the Ohio River is to the Mississippi. As the Ohio, great in itself, flows into the ‘Father of Waters’ and materially increases its power, and in so doing influences the whole river below the point of contact, so Virgil, great of himself, influences in some way or other all subsequent literature. Such in¬ fluence may be exerted either directly or indirectly. It is well to fifty-seven bear this in mind, for some writers in whose works no trace of direct Virgilian influence can be found may have been imitators of the Italian Renaissance writers or the French of the 15th century who were close adherents to Virgil’s principles. Virgil has always been the most popular of the ancient classical writers. Even in his own day his works were a favorite study with his own countrymen and within fifty years of his death they were admitted to the very great honor which they have since retained of serving as a text-book for students. From that day they have been considered almost essential instruments of a liberal education. Probably the greatest testimony to the persistence of his fame and influence in the western world is the homage which that great genius, Dante, pays to him. He calls him the “sea of all knowledge” and “the sage who knew all things.” He also pays him the practical compliment of imitating his verse and many of his wonderful and perfectly descriptive similes. Dante, in his ‘Inferno’ is conducted through Hades by Virgil. Several reasons for the selection of Virgil as his guide have been advanced but no other is so satisfactory as that given by Carlyle in the introduction to his translation of the ‘Inferno.’ He claims that it was Dante’s belief in Virgil as a philosopher and prophet as well as an intense admiration for his art that influenced him in making this choice. The influence of Virgil on the later Renaissance in Italy is abun¬ dantly attested in the writings of that age. Voltaire who was one of the greatest thinkers ever produced by France stated that he and his contemporaries owed much to their study of the Aeneid. From the time of St. Bede the venerable Virgil’s influence on English literature has been almost continuous. Bede wrote almost exclusive in Latin and his Latin is in many respects similar to the Latin of Virgil. Chaucer too, whom someone has appropriately styled ‘The Morning Star of Song’ was an enthusiastic student of Virgil and it is to this study that he undoubtedly owes the perfection of form and the sense of artistic restraint which distinguish his best works. In his ‘Legend of Good Women’ he commemorates the un¬ happy Dido, one of Virgil’s greatest characters. The Elizabethan Age shows his influence in a most signal man¬ ner. With the single exception of Shakespeare all the writers of that age were influenced either directly or indirectly and this in¬ fluence was manifested in many ways. It is worthy of note at this point that Shakespeare is the only really great literary figure since the time of Virgil in whose writings no trace whatever of the latter’s influence may be foun d. This is all the more strange because Shake¬ speare and Virgil have much in common. Neither are moral preach¬ ers and both subordinate all else to the plot. At least that was their intention though neither succeeded in doing so as those who read their works will remember their characters long after the plots have been forgotten. Spencer resembles Virgil in so many ways that at the time of his publication of “The Shepherd’s Calendar’’ he was called the new Virgil or the English Virgil. These pastorals were a direct imita¬ tion of the ‘Eclogues.’ In his “Faerie Queen’’ too, he continually re¬ produces portions of the Aeneid. Pope, in his pastorals and Milton, in his famous epic ‘Paradise Lost’ adhere closely to Virgilian principles. Dryden, the leading figure of the Restoration period not only translated Virgil but also imitated him. It is sometimes said of him that he was more like Virgil than Virgil was like himself. In the Romantic period, the age of Addison, Johnson, Swift and Burke, the sanity of Virgil’s art made him the most popular of the classical writers. It is said of Burke, who is one of the greatest orators of all time, that he carried with him constantly a copy of Virgil’s works from which he was wont to often quote as it aroused the interest or at least commanded the attention of his hearers. Even today it gives a speaker or writer an added dignity in the eyes of his audience if he is able to quote Virgil. Thus we see that Virgil has influenced world literature for two thousand years and in all probability he will continue to influence it for two thousand more. In the words of Tennyson, one of his greatest admirers and in some instances one of his closest imitators, he is “Light among the vanished ages; star that gildest yet this phantom shore. Golden branch amid the shadows, kings and realms that pass to rise no more.” Embert Hoover “I see I’ve lost another pupil,” said the professor as his glass eye rolled down the sink.

Under the masterful leadership of Mr. Joseph Schnitzer, school director of dramatics, Shavings, a three act royalty comedy was produced. The plot of the play centered around the life of J. Edward Winslow, known as Shavings. His whole career is a seeming fail¬ ure. When he discovers that Ruth Armstrong, upon whom he had set his heart, is to marry Major Leonard Grover, the climax of the play is reached. The manner in which the fellows impersonated the various char¬ acters cannot be too highly commended. Those who played the feminine roles are especially deserving of praise. We extend our congratulations to all who aided in the success of “Shavings.” It afforded delightful entertainment to two most appreciative audiences. DRAMATIS PERSONAE J.

We can all talk turkey now. m is November fourteenth marked the beginning of a series of spirit¬ ual conferences in Aquinas. These conferences are held each month in the auditorium in the presence of the Most Blessed Sacrament. As the week of the fourteenth happened to be Education Week, the Conference Master, Father Wurzer, selected as his topic, The Edu¬ cation of a Catholic Gentleman. His talk was very interesting as well as most instructive. All persons, regardless of their age or condition of life, have certain duties to perform. As students in a select Catholic high school, our duties pertain to our school life. We have the moral obligation of doing our every school task to the best of our ability Realizing this, we are certain that our success is not to be measured merely by what we achieve but by a comparison of our achievements with what might be expected of men of our tal¬ ents and opportunities. The advantage which is ours in receiving our training in the arts and sciences in a religious atmosphere was deeply impressed upon our minds. Truly ours is a blessed privilege but let us not forget: “ Unto whom much is given, of him much shall he expected.” sixty-five Hogtrum c 21 BS W ►J .

That fatal shadow tore down our high- built fancies and reminded us that football was still one of the unattained hopes of the Aquinas student body. We spent much time wondering what the opposition could be and wondering brought out certain phases of the game which might prove objectionable if not properly managed; the possibility of in¬ juries, or, perhaps, the over-emphasis of athletics in the educa¬ tional course. However, the beginning of this school-year brought about the memorable change which the student body had long awaited. The authorities had decided to give football a chance, a chance to prove whether it would be beneficial or detrimental to high school education. The call was issued for candidates and the response was tre- menduous. Mr. Leary had his hands full the first few nights, ex¬ plaining away the ambitions of the curly-headed freshmen who were under five feet in height and persuading the condescending seniors that football was played in sweat-shirts rather than in Oxford gray sport suits. When, at last, those who feared the fatal effects of such vigorous exercise were sorted out, the survivors settled down for the hardest grind which was to lead up to the only scheduled game, that with Albion on November fifteenth. If there is any time in a high school career that true school spirit can be judged it is at a time like this. To see those fellows work¬ ing hard, night after night, with no encouragement but a game far ahead, surrounded by uncertain circumstances, was truly an inspir¬ ation. The effect that the mere mention of November fifteenth had upon some tired, weary soul, trudging solemnly to the gym after a real hard drill was almost a charm. His eyes would light up and a cheerful, brisk trot replace the slow walk just to show the coach that he really cared. These dreary nights and hard drills made them feel, in a measure, the responsibility that was placed upon them and the arrival of the great day found them composed and confident. They entered the game with determination backed by the old Aquinas “fight” and played the game all the time. I shall omit the details for although Aquinas fought valiantly they were overcome by the experience of their rivals and the confidence which accom¬ panies skill. The live bucks of Garges, Barnes and Leary, the passes of Marks and Nallv and the tackling of Russer, Van Allan and Engels could not drive back the purple tide of Albion nor check the advances of Gordon, ‘Fog’ Brown, Albion’s elusive quarterback. The final score was 13-7 in Albion’s favor, not a decisive margin but really enough to name Albion the victor. This was one case however where defeat did not mean grief and sorrow but, on the contrary, it meant joy and gladness. To battle a seasoned team with many victories to its credit, through a fiercely fought game ending with a 13-7 score was no feat to be ashamed of. The student body also felt this way and, when Monday arrived, instead of sarcasm and criticism, praise and congratulations were in order. Years will come and pass on. Freshmen will continue to wander aimlessly through the corridors of dear old Aquinas, schedule cards in hand and bewildered looks upon their faces. Senior groups will occupy the places of honor in the Auditorium. Scholastic records will be broken and the Honor Roll will flourish with ever-increasing numbers. Amid the whirl and tumult of progress the Class of 1931 will pass into oblivion. We must pass, for our time is nearly spent; the time of our days at Aquinas is limited and new fields are open ing before us, but, as we go, let us stretch out a hand of encouragement to those men who worked so hard to make football a success at Aquinas and to wish for them the best of luck in the future.

The second conference occurred on December tenth when Father Brien spoke to us on our Blessed Mother’s Immaculate Conception. The doctrine of the Immaculate Conception has ever been held by devout Catholics; but in 1854 Christ’s Vicar, speaking ex cathedra, proclaimed it an article of Faith. What more fitting gift could God bestow upon her who was destined from all eternity to become the Mother of His Divine Son? What beyond all else would raise this lowly Maiden high above all other human beings? Surely her pres¬ ervation from the slightest taint of sin. Let us try to imitate our Lady by keeping the garden of our souls free from all sin. Let us in the hour of temptation cry out, Mary Immaculate, protect us! Let us make Mary our Friend with God for surely He will refuse her nothing whom of all creatures He has so wonderfully dignified. 0, Maria, sine labe concepta, ora pro nobis. L. U. seventy ®fjc gs tamp Collector This article is not for the purpose of showing anyone how to become a stamp collector; rather it is to prevent the readers from ever taking such a fatal step. For a very odd individual is a stamp collector. He exhibits qualities entirely foreign to the human race. He becomes detached from society and performs acts of which no human being should even think. He is the most degenerate species of “homo sapiens.” For who has watched an ardent collector without wonder and pity? He sits in the midst of his implements and materials, an album on his knees and countless squares of colored paper, loose or attached to other papers, spread about him. His back is bent and his head moves mechanically from one side to the other as he surveys his stamps. Now and then he extends a hand and takes up a stamp, mutters odd words and places it in the book on his knees. This goes on for hours. During such spells, he is oblivious to his surroundings, to happenings and to all sounds. Then witness a conversation between two of these collectors. Their language alone is a revelation. It is utterly incomprehensible. There is no danger of anyone’s overhearing their talk since it is in that mysterious language which all collectors acquire by instinct. Then too, their actions are most strange. The two collectors may be total strangers yet within five minutes one is taking the other home to show him a collection. Moreover, to the utter astonishment of every normal youth, he will find that the collector actually spends time in studying the geography of every country in the atlas. This alone would indicate that something has left its natural order for who ever heard of a man or boy who studied geography voluntarily? The prices which these collectors pay for their tiny squares of colored paper are enough to give everyone a feeling of pity towards these persons. They are perfectly willing to pay anything they have for a stamp, even though it lessens their savings by several thou¬ sands of dollars. This fact seems a gross waste to any ordinary individual, but the collector merely smiles and bears off his new possession. So, my friends, beware of this strange profession and its advo¬ cates; shun its lures and turn a deaf ear when its followers tempt you. It is like a drug—when once it is started, it will not release its victim. Its influence may wane at times but it always returns to worry the mind and to harass the pocketbook. Elmer J.

As freshmen some wasted many opportunities and therefore our class number is somewhat diminished. As our minds have matured we now realize that there is a definite purpose in attending school and so we formed many good intentions. Some of us wavered and fell before the terrific onslaught of our mid-year examinations; the rest have survived and we are proud to say have made an enviable record. We did our share faithfully in keeping the scholastic record at a high standard. The honor rolls were largely composed of sopho¬ mores. It is true that we met with mishaps but Caesar’s “Veni, Vidi, Vici” was not marred by us; but at the thought of geometry fiery circles appear before our minds and we lapse into a state of coma. The reader is not to suppose that we broke down under the great mental strain; on the contrary in all sports we lent our moral, vocal and physical support. The football team still in its infancy owed much of its success to the presence of sophomores in its ranks. Bas¬ ketball was also enriched by the presence of some of our members, baseball promises not to fall behind in its representation of our class. As we look back on our first two years at Aquinas we view much of our work with pride and satisfaction and we now go forward with higher ideals. We step up to fill the ranks left vacant by the juniors and keep our eyes set even farther ahead on that great goal —graduation.

On December 20, 1905, His Holiness Pope Pius X issued his decree “Sacra Tridentina Syno- dus 1 ” on Frequent and Daily Communion. It is most fitting that we commemorate this great event on its twenty-fifth anniversary. Pope Pius declared no new doctrine by his proclamation but merely corrected a universal error. The stand of the Church on Holy Communion has always remained unaltered. Coldness on the part of Catholics in the reception of the Holy Eucharist had developed into a heresy in former times. The Church condemned this error, but a controversy concerning the proper dispositions requisite for law¬ ful reception persisted. It was this dispute that Pope Pius definitely settled by his decree of 1905. What an opportunity for grace has the decree “Sacra Tridentina Synodus” presented to the world; We now have ready access to the love of Our Saviour in the tabernacle. He formally has invited us to receive the innumerable riches which abound in Holy Communion. By the Holy Eucharist, alone, we have life within us. It is the burn¬ ing testimony of Christ’s love for men. Yet how often do we hear of young people who were frequent communicants in high school, but after having left the influence of Catholic teaching, have fallen into the habit of neglecting this Sac¬ rament! Too many of us have the impression that frequent Com¬ munion means monthly Communion. We have allowed our views to become unworthy of us because of lack of interest in our most glor¬ ious Sacrament. Let us try to return to the spirit of the decree of Pope Pius. To-day Frequent Communion is more necessary than ever be¬ fore. Never has evil so boldly asserted itself as in this day. The world has become a seething mass of moral disorder. The Catholic Church, alone, stands true because of the Divine aid of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. Holy Communion, the remedy for lukewarmness, should be universally frequented by all Catholics in this day of peril. Let them remember the words of Christ.—“Amen, Amen I say unto you, unless you eat the Flesh of the Son of man and drink His Blood you shall not have life in you.” Let us remember, classmates, as we take our glorious leave from the scene of our youth, remember our Christian training. Business and pleasure will seek to edge out the frequent reception of Com¬ munion. Guard against this evil, for, as life fades, the need of the Blessed Sacrament becomes more great. Let it stand before us as another Star of Bethlehem, pointing out the way of truth. The Eucharist, then, will guide us through life’s perils and bring us at last, to a most happy eternity. „ 1 J Donald Principe He Certle Jfoclj Notre cercle est a la fin de la deuxieme annee de sa vie scolaire; il est done propice et raisonnable de nous feliciter un peu sur 1 ' ecoulement d’ une annee aussi fructuese que celle—ci.

H 1 H With the words of the Magi, “We have seen His Star in the East and are come to adore Him” as his text, Father Dwyer de¬ scribed the calling of the Magi and their visit to the Crib in the third conference hour on January sixth. This visit was interpreted as a pilgrimage of Faith and a promise of missionaries, through whose efforts we have received the priceless heritage of our belief. A re¬ view of the missionary activities of the church was presented to us and we were exhorted to a true appreciation of the intrepid zeal of the lately canonized Jesuit missionaries whose blood watered the soil of our own state and the neighboring regions of Canada. This conference hour impressed upon our minds the necessity of profess¬ ing our Faith at all times and if need be, our willingness to give up all even life itself rather than prove faithless to our sacred trust. L. U. seventy-nine eighty is mtors; of QTomorroU) ELLOW JUNIORS! Our time at Aquinas is grow¬ ing very short and now with three-fourths of our journey nearly completed, let us make a survey of what we have done here. Like Crusaders of old, let us pause in our journey up the mountain of Prog¬ ress and look down the slope of time to the very foot of the mountain where lies the land of the Freshmen. In the distance we can distinguish the broad, green meadows of leisure, the dark forests of adventure and the sparkling streams of happiness and success. There also are the rocky pitfalls and stony gorges of disappointment and sorrow, but the blue sky of carefree and imaginative youth overshadows all. Through this land we march, not without loss of number, and finally arrive on the frontier of the mysterious land of the Sophomores. Determined to succeed and strengthened by past experiences, we start forth cn our second great adventure. Here the way is rougher and the journey becomes a test of character. On all sides the marks of previous battles can be seen. The greatest obstacle to be sur¬ mounted is Mathematics which stretches like a bog of quicksand across our path. Most of us find the narrow, crooked path to suc¬ cess but a few are caught in the bog and are drawn down to failure. We successfully overcome the difficulties of mid-year and final examinations and after a hard fought battle we stand once more on the threshold of a new land. We are now Juniors. The entrance into this new land is an experience of adventure and interest. We wonder what lies before us, beyond the great veil which hides the future from the present. We are soon to find out, however, and with high spirits we start our third attack. The path is now less treacherous and the journey more smooth. We success¬ fully scale the barriers of first quarterly and mid-year examinations and are now on the downward grade of our second last year. With stout hearts and high hopes we gain victory over the third quarterly examinations. Now we turn our attention and concentrate our forces on the last great skirmish of our Junior year. With this last impediment cleared from our path, we go forward eagerly to the land which holds the object of our quest. Today we are standing on the border. Tomorrow we shall have entered in and shall be Seniors, and in a few short months this last stronghold will have fallen before our ceaseless attacks. Therefore we pause to look back on what we have accomplished and to look forward on what remains to be done. We measure ourselves to be sure that we are fit for the final struggle, and with the advice of our teachers and under the patronage of Saint Thomas Aquinas, we fill the places of those Seniors who have gone before us. Joseph A. Weber eighty Aquinas cfecp Clut) The Aquinas Hockey Club in its sixth year of organized hockey not only completed their most successful season but acquired an objective of several years in meeting and decisively defeating the city champions, John Marshall. The best record since the organization of the team; seven wins, two ties and two defeats, was set up by the Maroons. The most important victories were those scored over John Marshall, R. B. I., and Brockport Ramblers. The Alumni and Country Club games were attended by large crowds. The first game of the year saw the Irish, handicapped by lack of practice, pitted against the strong Alumni team, who eked out a 1-1 tie on a lucky score in the last period. Irondequoit, Occidentals, R. B. I. next fell easy victims. Brockport was held to a scoreless tie on soft ice although the Maroons had the better of the play. The Rochester Hockey Club, composed exclusively of Canadian players downed a fighting Irish sextette for a 4-2 win. R. B. I. was defeated for the second time by a score of 5-2. Aquinas avenged a tie in their first meeting by defeating the Brockport Ramblers, 6-0. After a de¬ feat by the Country Club, the Maroons closed their long season by defeating the Faculty and John Marshall. Aquinas showed not only a strong defense but also a powerful offence. The forward line of Norb Young, Captain Simmons and Red Ward showed a real scoring punch. Joe McHugh in the nets had five shutouts to his credit out of eleven games. Jimmy VanAllan and Ed Zuck patrolled the defense zone to good advantage. The for¬ ward line of Wise, Lecomte, Haitz acquired much experience and show promise for next year. Mayer and Casser, goal; Welch and Sullivan, defence; Maloney and Zapf, wings alternated with the regulars. TEAM RECORD Aquinas l Alumni—1 l Irondequoit—0 a 2 R. B.

Senior Days are drawing nigh. John J. Curran eighty-three ®fje ®rip to Syracuse According to nature’s law and custom, the month of January was again upon us. Sixteen days later obviously enough came the sixteenth, just as punctual as ever before. We could not have post¬ poned it, had we so desired, for a single second,—but, there was not the slightest thought of this, since that date meant our trip to Syracuse. Therefore, again according to custom, tradition, Hoyle or some¬ thing, about half the student body assembled at the New York Cen¬ tral station to follow and support its team when it faced C. B. A. that night at Syracuse. Yes, that was real school spirit! It is rumored that great sacrifices were made to do this on the part of some. Shoe strings were sold on street corners and old homesteads mortgaged. However, what was most important they were there, all in high spirits and ready for a good time. At four the train began its one hour and a half trip or period of torture, expressed from our view point and that of the train respectively. When it was possible to see a few inches through the dense smoke from black cigars, (sweet smelling) pipes and various brands of cigarettes, one could locate the source of noise in the front part of the seniors’ coach. “Butch” Keeling’s uke, “Sonny” Reichart’s banjo, “Hank” Collins’ drummer’s block and various gazoos were furnishing the strains of accompaniment for the quar¬ tet and chorus, the personnel of which was as changeable as the weather. So thus, were the card players disturbed all the way. When the train had barely stopped, Aquinas students, looking like politicians on election day with their colored buttons, ribbons and banners, made the uptown section ring like the cheering sec¬ tion at the Army-Notre Dame game with Aquinas cheers. Then a dead silence fell upon the city as restaurants from Hank’s Hash House to the more exclusive (by mistake) were filled. Comedy was there carried on as the patrons of Ginsburg’s, who shook with laughter at the novel acts put on between oyster crackers and fish fry will testify. This over, torpedoes, flares and firecrackers on the square an¬ nounced the opening of the arm ory. There the boys continued to cheer and throw coins, mostly pennies (buttons, slugs and other things were also used as substitutes) to the little fellows who scram¬ bled for them on the floor until the game was over. Like real sports they bore defeat and with the determination that the same would not happen again they went out to continue their good time. Festivities continued till late that night. After watching the big raid at the “Syracuse” the “big parade” returned to make an¬ other train trip. This was very similar to that down and at its end many lads, contrary to the axiom, with light hearts and light purses (Farrell excepted) went home to dream of their good time. A.

Four years ago, his fresh¬ man year, he came to the gym a real basketball enthusiast. He was too small to do any kind of playing, so he helped the team in another way. He became the official mascot to the team of ' 29-30. He dogged the steps of Burns, McMillan and others of that year, ready to assist them in any way. For four years he has helped, in every possible way, to do the things that make the running of games and prac¬ tices easier for the coach and manage¬ ment. He has stood the names called by the witless fellow students to one who does something he doesn’t have to do. Anyone who attended the games for the past four years saw him with his number cards and board keeping a running score. In his first year he was tiny and excitable, shuffling his cards when a score was made, search¬ ing for an elusive number, getting them upside down, and taking the good-natured call-down from the crowd when he slipped in his addition. As the first year and the next passed he became an un-selfconscious master at the board and at the play of the games. He could remark quietly how the team was look¬ ing ; knew when someone was ‘off’; could sense when the team was going to slip; and became an observer of calm insight as to the team’s play; ’tho he was not above excitement and had his jumping moments right through his fourth year. During one game this jump¬ ing at a game was due to other causes than the team’s play. He came to the game in a pair of freshly cleaned trousers, on which the tailor must have used some heat producing fluid. The game was not close in the first half yet no one could help but notice the jump¬ ing Jimmie who seemed quite excited and unable to stay seated. During the half one of the players loaned James a pair of basket¬ ball trunks to wear next to his tender skin and James sat on the bench during the second half in the uniform of Aquinas tho it was unnoticed by the audience. On another evening he came to his job at the score board with bandages around his head so that little of James was showing. He explained that he had been in an accident, but that did not keep him from sitting across the floor from the wondering eyes and being on call to do any service for the team. And such is his history for the four years. He will leave the school as worthy a wearer of the Aquinas “A” as any letter man who has ever been awarded the honor. Jfebruarp Feb. 2.

Confession furnished Father Morgan with material for our fourth monthly conference. One thought particularly remains with us from Father Morgan’s talk: the necessity of examining our con¬ science not alone to discover the sins of commission of which we are guilty but also to ascertain how often we have offended God by sins of omission. Ingratitude was especially emphasized as the source of sins of the latter type and I am sure there was not a boy present in the auditorium on February third who did not resolve there and then to prove grateful to all who have been instrumental in making his boyhood days so happy and profitable. Yes, fathers and mothers and teachers, Right Reverend Bishop and your Grace, Archbishop Hickey, to you and to all who have provided Rochester with so splen¬ did an institution as Aquinas we are and shall ever remain grateful. ®()e C. P. m. §ame “We now join the national broadcasting hookup in bringing you the C. B. A. game from the New York State Armory through station W. A. I. K. This is Thomas McLain announcing.” “Well since I’ve been brought over to the microphone to give a brief summary and my appreciation (ahem!) of the game here to¬ night, I suppose I may as well show the benefits derived from the correspondence course in public speaking. “It is my opinion that even my correspondence course wouldn’t aid me because it is impossible to describe the scene and the game here tonight. You, who stayed at home saying “Just another beating for Aquinas, 1 ' had it all wrong. The Irish, and I’ve certainly learned why they are called the ‘Fighting Irish out here tonight, have proved that they are rightly considered one of the best teams ever coached at Aquinas. Showing their traditional form and light spirit against ther ancient rivals from Syracuse, they trounced C. B. A. by the largest margin ever gained over the Salt City lads. “With over six hundred wild, hooting supporters with their horns, bells, and whistles to add to the noise of the cheering be¬ hind them, the Irish led by Connelly .lumped into the lead at the start and piled up a total of five points belore C. B. A. was able to register a tally. The game then settled down into a hard fought con¬ test featuring brilliant shooting and passing, the score being knotted at eleven all at half time. “The third quarter too was close with C. B. A. ever threatening the lead of the Irish. It was not until the last canto that the game was finally decided. Hargaden’s foul toss gave C. B. A. their first lead in the game. O’Neil followed with a foul shot to tie the score and Pellino registered a basket for the Irish to put Aquinas in the lead. Aquinas started freezing t he ball and C. B. A. overanxious rushed in, leaving their men unguarded and successive baskets were registered by Connelly and Pellino to put the game on ice. Pellino drew the curtain on the Aquinas scoring with a foul toss. Hargaden sank the last field goal for the invaders. “To appreciate this game out here tonight you simply had to be present. It gives you a queer feeling to see all these rooters over there in the Aquinas’ stands, full of spirit and pep, some cheering, some praying, all for the common cause, “Beat C. B. A.” When you see a sight like this it makes you realize what ‘bunk’ this talk about over-emphasis in sports really is and it shows you what sort of cleanliving, healthy, red-blooded and enthusiastic boys these lads from the Catholic high schools really are. You feel their spirit surge into your own heart as you see those boys out there on the floor fight¬ ing every minute to the final whistle. They may be tired but you don’t know it. Their spirit is ‘one more basket.’ Speed! To see those boys from Aquinas work that ball down the court leaves an empty and seemingly lack of usefulness feeling in your heart when you realize you are not out there. And that’s what shows itself over there in those bleachers. They can’t be out there but they put their spirit out there just the same. That’s the Old Aquinas spirit! They talk about it and they write about it but the C. B. A. game gives that perfect picture of it, and this game was no exception. Beaten, rather, ‘swamped’ at Syracuse, the Irish ‘came through’ and when we seek the answer we find it in the splendid fighting spirit of the team and their supporters. No more fitting tribute may be given the Irish than that they are of the Fighting Irish, the kind one finds at Notre Dame.

DePutter ninety-three ®fje Pasfeetball Reason One of the youngest teams in the history of the school repre¬ sented Aquinas in the 1930-31 basket ball season. The majority of the team was made up of former “Reserve’ players among whom were Connelly, Maliborski, Pellino, Shannon, Marks, and Sullivan. The remainder of the squad consisted of Capt. McNally, the veteran of the 1929-30 season and O’Neill, Tomczak, Flood, Meagher, Water¬ man, Coveney and Knapp, all newcomers. However, in spite of the youthfulness of the team, it enjoyed a very successful season, win¬ ning fifteen of seventeen games, and incidentally, setting a record by beating C. B. A. by more than one point, something which no other Aquinas team ever did. Opening the season against Holley High, the Maroon and White team started on a winning streak which included victories over Holley, Utica, Assumption, Clyde High, the Alumni, and St. Mary’s of Lancaster. All of these teams were easily beaten and the pros¬ pects for a record season looked bright until the sixth game of the season, which was with the powerful Mynderse Academy quint. Playing an ineligible man, Capt. Morse, who scored eleven points in the game, Mynderse eked out a 22-20 win over the “Fighting Irish’’ in a game which will long be remembered. The next game, against the U. of R. Fimsh, who conquered every public high school in Rochester, except Benjamin Franklin, was another thriller. The game was close throughout and the score tied many times even into Ihe closing minutes of play. The Aquinas quint took a 25-23 deci¬ sion in this game, which once more put them in the win column. On Jan. 26th, over two hundred fifty hopeful students board¬ ed the train at the New York Central station and left Rochester, with the idea of conquering the crack quint from the Salt City, C. B. A., led by Capt. Hargaden, played probably its best game of the season, while the Maroon and White team decidedly had an “off” night. The game was a complete rout with Aquinas taking a terrible 41-22 beating, the worst ever suffered at the hands of C. B. A. How¬ ever, Coach Leary kept up the morale of the team and drilled them harder than ever. The Aquinas ball-tossers next went to Brockport and there took some of their revenge out on the Brockport High Team, which was beaten by the score of 24-10. Following this game, the Maroon and White team played host to the LeRoy High Team and sent that aggregation home with a loss. Playing their last game before that with C. B. A., the “Fighting Irish” travelled to Buffalo to play St. Joe’s., and in this game the team really showed that it had plenty of fight. Badly beaten at the end of the first quarter, and the half, the team fought an uphill battle throughout the second half and when the playing time ended, the score was tied at 24-all. In the extra period which was played, Connelly and Pellino ran wild and Aquinas landed on the top of a 31-24 score. Truly, this team could well claim the title “Fighting Irish.” strengthened the old adage that “you can never tell.” Because of the loss at Syracuse, Aquinas was conceded only an outside chance of even coming close to beating C. B. A. The general opinion was that nothing short of a miracle would win the game for the Maroon and White. However, the result upset all pre-game predictions and from the very start the team jumped into the lead which they held during most of the contest. Near the end of the first half, C. B. A. went on a scoring spree and as the half ended, the score was knotted at eleven all. Once again in the second half Aquinas took the front and were still leading at the end of the third quarter. In the last period C. B. A. managed to gain the lead but a foul and a basket again gave the Maroon and White the advantage. In the closing minutes, C. B. A. gambled everything, but still Aquinas maintained their lead and when the whistle blew, the Dewey Ave. boys were just four points better than the Syracuse lads. The final score was Aquinas 26, C. B. A. 22. Certainly this team can always point back to this game with pride, because, in spite of the fact that they were the “under¬ dogs,” they accomplished something which no previous Aquinas’ team ever did. Following this game, Aquinas hung up victories over Utica Assumption, St. Andrew’s, Palmyra, St. Joe’s and Brockport. It was truly a great team and a great season. As for the individual scoring, it only depended on who was doing the cutting and receiv¬ ing the passes. Everyone had his “big” night at one time or an¬ other, and everyone can share the glory of the victories.

But did anyone ever stop to think of the great number of amateur basketball teams that are formed of Aquinas students? Day after day, during the winter, if we glance over the sport-page we see the names of fellow-students written under such headings as: “Cyclops win close game from Arrows” or “R. A. C. Juniors again victorious.” The dictionary definition of an amateur is one who plays for the love of the game. The boys on these teams are the only true amateurs. They are not working for a letter, or for personal glory much less for money. Their only objective in playing is to experi¬ ence the thrill that the swish of flying leather through the net alone can give and to enjoy the splendid exercise this sport affords. One is more than surprised at the range of pupils that play on these teams. From the highest member of the Saint Thomas Club to the last member of the Dishonor Roll (Perhaps too much playing and too little studying put him there) their chief delight is centered in their own team, no matter how good or how bad it is. Frederick Meyer ninety-eight ninety-nine one hundred ®f) e Mentor J3lai The title of this thrilling mystery play, Pals First, strikes the key note of the production. It was presented by the Senior Class in the school auditorium, on the evenings of February ninth and tenth. The play consisted of a prologue and three acts and was written by Lee Wilson Dodd. Ten seniors and one freshman took part in the production. The drama presented the story of two knights of the road who played a bluff which finally turned out to be a reality. It contained many comic situations which kept the audience in laughter a great part of the time and held their interest during the whole presen¬ tation. Nor was the performance lacking in heart stirring pathos, which brought tears to the eyes of many in the audience. We, the members of the Senior Class, are grateful to Mr. Schnitzer for the success which he insured to the performance and for the patience which he showed toward the members of the cast throughout the rehearsals and the presentation.

Thank the Lord, there’s only one more. On March third Father Keefe spoke to the student body on the outstanding virtues in the life of Saint Joseph. Scripture tells us almost nothing concerning the Foster Father of the Son of God. It makes mention of him as being a just man. What more need be said? Three virtues which are especially characteristic of the life of this chosen one are: diligence, purity and obedience. These vir¬ tues should also characterize our lives and there is no better way of cultivating them than by closely studying the life of Saint Joseph. This greatest of the patriarchs died in the arms of Jesus and Mary. Let us pray daily to Saint Joseph that ours may be a death like his; that it may be our happiness to breathe forth our souls in the pres¬ ence of our Sacramental King and that Mother Mary may conduct our souls to the Great White Throne. L. U. atnt Cfjomaa Aquinas; N the Appian Road, midway between Rome and Naples, was situated the ancient city of Aquinum. Although its entire territory consisted of a coast line of but a scant fifty miles, it was a powerful and formidable little community. Even the Romans un¬ der Tarquin the Second failed to conquer it and for two hundred years Aquinum was independent. To¬ day the place, which is a poor one, is known as Aquino, and but a few of its ancient glories exist. However, the memory of one of its inhabitants does exist, and, as time goes on, his name becomes more revered and more famous About seven hundred six years ago, there was born to the Count and Countess of Aquino, a third child whom they decided to name Thomas, in honor of his grandfather. Like the life of Saint Ignatius, Thomas’ was destined to be a militaristic one; at least that was the plan of his wealthy parents. For this reason, in 1236 he was sent to the famous Abbey of Monte Cassino, where he remained until he was twelve years old. By this time the University of Naples was ready to receive hm. For seven years this institution fed his mind with wisdom and his soul with piety. Grammar, logic, oratory, music and higher mathematics—none offered difficulty to Thomas one hundred five whose scholastic ability was preeminent among his classmates. It was observed that during his stay at the University, this noble youth often went to the Church of the Dominicans, there to pray in silence and to listen to the sermons of the followers of Saint Dom¬ inic. This pious custom caused him to seek the habit of the Friar Preachers; and when he received it in 1243, a protest from his family started a long but losing battle to win him back to the world. By force, they managed to seize him and subject him to great temp¬ tations. But even a year and a half of this could not diminish his enthusiasm. After he was released, his parents’ opposition was still so great that Thomas was forced to defend the liberty of his actions before the Pope in Rome. After he had made his profession as a member of the Order of Preachers, his superiors decided to further his educational oppor¬ tunities. In 1246, Thomas entered the lecture hall of Albert the Great where he obtained the name of “The Dumb Sicilian Ox.” This nickname was the result of a massive frame and an inactive tongue. But only for half a year did Thomas remain at the lecture hall. He moved to Paris where seven years of study more fully developed his already well-tilled mind. He returned to Cologne where he was ordained priest. Writing and preaching took up his first years of ordination. Then as he was about to depart for Paris to gain the Doctorate, a conflict against the friars broke out in University cir¬ cles. It was this incident that caused Thomas to write the “Apologia Pro Summa”, a document in defense of the priesthood. This won¬ derful defense brought an end to the conflict and much honor to Thomas. Returning now to Paris, he pronounced his doctorate dis¬ course, “The Majesty of Christ,” and received his ring and cap, which entitled him to the degree of Doctor of the University of Paris. From this time on, Thomas traveled much, going from city to city, preaching in behalf of truth. But his traveling did not hinder his writing; for during this time, many famous documents were composed. Pope Gregory offered him the Archbishopric of Naples, but in all humility, Thomas refused the honor. While engaged in the exposition of the Catholic faith, this noble disciple of Christ was invited by the Holy Father to attend the General Conference of the Church at Lyons. While on his way he fell sick and stopped at the Cistercian monastery of Fossa Nuova. Here on March seventh, 1274, this most brilliant Dominican died, only to be remembered as the scholar of scholars and a most holy and tractable disciple of Him Who is the Author of all knowledge. In 1323, Thomas was canonized and proclaimed a Doctor of the Church, Prince and Master of all scholastics, and Patron of Cath¬ olic schools throughout the world. And thus today, stands in Rochester an institution dedicated to that Patron of students. Need¬ less to say, it is our Alma Mater, and needless also to say we are proud to have such a Patron whose virtues and principles we shall daily endeavor to make more fully a part of our lives. Philip O’Loughlin 3ht jWemortam I3R 1 )HN STONEWALL, I had, for almost four years, worked and studied, hoped and prayed for that day in June, —a day worthy of toil, self- sacrifice and prayer,—com¬ mencement day. All was not easy for him. His repeated absence made for harder toil and more concentrated study. His health seemed to be of the best. His jo¬ vial countenance was well matched by sparkling eyes and blonde hair. The blow which befell him was aston¬ ishing. His absence was not viewed with alarm. Then word was received that John was seriously ill,—serious to the extreme—that his life was in danger. Life was slowly ebbing away. He saw his years of work slipping past, but something much finer, more beautiful, and more greatly desired was re¬ placing them. He was completing his life-long work of preparation for that inevitable time,—for his journey to the Court of Christ. But John may yet be working for his graduation, working in a different manner, in a manner in which we, his fellow classmates, can help. He may be toiling in the state of Purgatory, working for his graduation not into this outer life, not to a position, nor to a suc¬ cessful married life but into man’s eternal home, heaven. And let us hope that if such be so, his gradu¬ ation will fall on the same day as ours if not before that day. Let us lighten the burden of our friend. Let us pray to him and for him. Aquinas mourns, with a truly sad and heavy heart, the loss of this potential graduate. May we hope that we too have time for our final preparation, but let us not depend too much on God’s mercy. Let us always be ready for the call of God to His Heavenly kingdom. Bertram Tremer one hundred seven one hundred eight The Reverend George Eckl Since the publication of the 1930 Arete, our school has been beautified by gifts of two new statues. Last June, Mr. and Mrs. Charles W. Furtherer presented to Aquinas a statue of the Immaculate Conception in memory of their son, Charles, who was graduated in the Class of nineteen thirty. This beautiful image of our Lady has been placed in a shrine in the north end of the second corridor and serves as a silent monitor to the students that they are ever under their gracious Queen’s watch¬ ful care. Many of the students have formed the habit of whispering an ejaculation in Mary’s honor each time they pass this shrine on their way to and from class. In the fall, a handsome marble statue of the Sacred Heart was installed above the Tabernacle in our chapel. This statue, we later learned, is a gift of the Pastor of Saint Andrew’s Parish, the Rev¬ erend George Eckl, who presented it to our school in memory of his brother. Its presence serves to emphasize the boundless love of the Divine Prisoner residing on our altar for us, waiting for us to come to Him; to tell Him of our successes and our failures; to crave His blessing and implore His pardon. Surely our school is a hallowed snot.. Not only are we reminded of the protecting care of our Blessed Mother and the immeasurable love of the Heart of Christ, but we have the priceless privilege of spending our days beneath the same roof as the King of Kings. Let us frequently visit this Victim of Love and while in His Presence, let us not forget the Reverend George Eckl and Mr. and Mrs. Fur¬ therer who have so fittingly honored their dear ones in our school.

Born in Italy, he was educated at a Jesuit College and later entered the Jesuit Society. It was on a visit to Stonyhurst College, England, that he became enthusiastic about astronomical studies. His rapid advancement in solar and stellar physics soon gained for him the directorship of the Roman College Observatory. Here Secchi, work¬ ing for the honor and glory of the Creator, invented his celebrated meteorograph and completed his most enduring work, the division of stellar spectra into four groups. He was also employed consis¬ tently by the Papal Government in designing lighthouses, and found time to write books on this work and deliver lectures. He spent forty-four years as a Member of the Society of Jesus and was hon¬ ored by a special blessing from Pope Pius IX, who praised his re¬ ligious virtues and said “Father Secchi has always known how to unite science with religion.” Altar and observatory sum up the life of Padre Angelo Secchi. Anthony Vigna one hundred thirteen Angelo £s ecdjt Science Club HE SPIRIT and the purpose of the newly organized science club of Aquin? j Institute have their embodi¬ ment in Angelo Secchi, S. J . one of the most eminent men of science of modern times. We have chosen him as our patron for several reasons, but most of all because he exemplified in his life the spirit of a man of God, ennobled by a devotion to science such as few have attained. For him, the study of science was a contrib¬ uting factor to his religious perfection; and for us it should be the same. In his life, the verse from the Psalms, “The heavens speak out Thy glory”, were literally fulfilled. If, in our school, the study of science should do no more for us than reveal through nature, a more intimate knowledge and beget a deeper love of Divine Provi¬ dence, what an infinitely greater advantage than the mere acquisi¬ tion of thousands of facts and laws! And should it not, what a barren waste of time and effort! Father Secchi was always one of the first to make use of modern theories and modern inventions. His method of observing facts and acquiring data was very simple. Like all great men, it was not so much what he did that made him great, as how he did what he ac¬ complished,—a simple, persevering and industrious observer of minute details. And this is what we shall endeavor to imitate in our science club: we shall try to do things in our own small way to envision more clearly the glory of God as revealed in nature, using the method of Angelo Secchi. The purpose of the club will be fulfilled in the requirements of membership. Any student who shows aptitude for science will be allowed to join, but upon the condition that he actually work upon some project assigned to him by the officers and the program com¬ mittee. Failure to do so means that he must drop ou t. The chair¬ man of the program committee, with other officers will be elected toward the close of the scholastic year, thus enabling some projects to be assigned for leisurely consideration during the summer vaca¬ tion and insuring the existence of continuity in the club from year to year. Besides student projects and reports, we shall endeavor from time to time to have lectures by outsiders of prominence on interesting topics. We shall require of alumni members that they pledge themselves to help us who remain, by returning occasionally and contributing interesting information, or by any other means whereby they can help us. Thus we may sum up the spirit and the aims of our club, hoping that it will contribute in no small way to make Aquinas deserving of a solid reputation along these lines, so that other schools and col¬ leges, and industrial concerns will be only glad to welcome alumni one hundred fourteen Officers of tfje Angelo Pectin Science Club President — Bertram Tremer, Vice-President — James VanAllan Secretary — Clarence Van Epps Chairman of Program Committee —Hugh Tate §olf Club Golf is swiftly gaining recognition in the field of high school athletics.

We sincerely hope that this game will be continued in fu¬ ture years and will rise to lofty heights as the culmination of our efforts. because they come from a school where science not only is taught, but where science develops an integral character of manliness, ver¬ acity, and stability, but most of all, a man of God.

Reward, at best, is superficial,— Or so the kind the world bestows. Praise is but a shallow gesture, Fickle as the wind that blows.

To keep others from getting the “blues”, These are, indeed, excellent virtues. William J. Kirk mire Enute Kodme HERE have been outstanding men in the various fields of endeavor; men who have met success in their chosen undertakings but few have lent such color to their careers, as has Knute Rockne, an extraordinary character and a figure towering far above all others in the land, in the realms of ath¬ letic coaches. As a lad Rockne aspired to be a great football player and as he grew into manhood, he was more and more determined to excel in this famous pastime. His first year in college left much to be de¬ sired, but he was not discouraged. His second year found him slightly improved; while his junior and senior years found him holding down a regular berth on the Notre Dame team. After his college career, he determined to do all in his power to establish the prestige of the “Notre Dame Ramblers.” The old sage from South Bend, Indiana, succeeded magnificently in his field of work. Rockne gave Notre Dame supremacy in the world of football. Notre Dame, by the example of her gridmen gave to its coach the spiritual insight into the true Faith. This Faith, Knute Rockne studied and finally embraced because of the confidence and courage with which it inspired the boys of Notre Dame. Writer, teacher, scientist, business-man, football coach, indeed, a master mind, Knute Rockne, the idol of sportsdom, has crossed the last white stripe and for the last time has touched the ball down in the safety zone. The Scorer has marked it down in His great book; and the Almighty Coach has permanently called him from the game and amidst the cheers and applause of angels in the stands of Paradise, he has taken his place on the side lines in eternity. George Nally CJje CanDp Counter ©uring TLmtty It is interesting and inspiring to notice how many students have given up candy during Lent. Many boys who were in the habit of getting a daily supply of candy for their afternoon classes, now go through that part of the day without refreshment. It is an heroic act of mortification and self-denial for the growing boy to forego his daily allottment of licorice, greenleaves, bolsters or whatever kind have you. At the beginning of Lent, I believed that in a few days the boys would forget their resolutions and would again ap¬ proach the candy counter and producing their jack, would loudly call for their favorite kinds of candy, but the boys have remembered their resolutions and have kept them and the only time when there has been a crowd around the candy counter was when our super¬ salesman, Keeling, was giving an exhibition of his skill with the Yo-Yo. Maurice Keefe ROOM 207 We were deeply edified by the spirit of sacrifice which the stu¬ dent-body manifested during Lent. Room 207 managed to pile up sufficient sacrifice money to provide our school with a set of Bene¬ diction vestments. We still wonder how Mr. Manning does it. B 1 1 SUeluia!

M. $ Member Often I’ve mused,—and thoughtfully, Of what will become of you and me When we have left this dear old school Chuck-full of knowledge and many a rule. Many of us with diploma in hand Will face the world and think it grand To shout out to all, unfalteringly, “Let them scramble and fight over me!” But to our surprise and our chagrin, There’s none will fight or even begin; None will extend their arms and say “Come, let me help you,—if I may.” Whatever we accomplish, we must do by hard work. Be not too dependent—danger may lurk; And whatever we do, we must always remember We do it to praise and honor the Saviour. Robert M.

The event was a significant one for all concerned. Our teachers were enabled to view a concrete result of their four years’ labor; more than ever before did the members of the class realize what parting from these friends and guides will mean when graduation severs the ever strengthening ties which now bind us to them. As the occasion was primarily a pleasurable one, we soon re¬ covered from our pensive mood and thereafter a delightful infor¬ mality permeated the atmosphere of the banquet hall. We all agree with Father Morgan that, as toastmaster, Don Principe revealed himself to be a profound psychologist whose subtle witticisms were responsible for much of our good time. His Lordship, Bishop O’Hern, in the principal speech of the evening, impressed upon all the importance of the true Catholic spirit of charity in the business world. His was a heart to heart talk which left in each of us the determination to always remember and practice the essentials of Catholicism instilled into us by word and example during our days at Aquinas. It is impossible to give here even a resume of the speeches delivered by our Reverend Prin¬ cipal, our Reverend Vice-Principal, by Father Morgan and our Class President, Phil O’Loughlin. Their memory will linger with us for many a day. The meal itself proved most tempting and the entertainment was excellent. Phil Dwyer, seneschal-in-chief, with his band of per¬ formers composed of Maurice DePutter, Tom Ackroyd, Gene Anselmi, Bob McDonald and the senior members of the Aquinas orchestra amused us with humor interspersed with musical selec¬ tions. All told, the evening of April twenty-third will ever be regarded by us as a red-letter one. Embert Hoover Wfyat’x t ]t ®£e? To begin with, we are either born or not born.

On Tuesday, May sixth, Father John O’Donnell spoke to the stu¬ dent body on Mary, our Mother. He encouraged us to imitate the virtues which shone out so prominently in Mary ' s life: humility, purity and the spirit of prayer. He pointed out to us a truth of which we sometimes lose sight, that just as no real boy would do anything to offend his natural mother so we should shrink from doing a nything which would offend her who is at once God’s Mother and our Mother, too. The fervent recitation of the League offering each morning will serve to keep our souls pure for how can one sully by the least stain of sin a thought, a word, or deed which in his morning prayers he has offered to Christ through the Immacu¬ late Heart of our common Mother? Lawrence Unger hundred twenty two locations! to ob Many are the vocations in this world and yet how crowded, how overcrowded most of them are! But there is one that is not crowd¬ ed. Out of this boiling swirl for human power comes the greatest vocation, the highest position man can hope to attain, the one of greatest dignity and power, and the one that no man is worthy to fill, the Priesthood. “The harvest is great but the laborers are few” saith the Lord. How astoundingly true this statement is! In the foreign missions, Mass can be said only once every two or three months because of the scarcity of God’s chosen laborers. Consequently, Confessions, Communions and Baptisms have to be postponed over this long period. Even at home in our large cities priests are needed badly; large institutions are lacking in the needed care and attention. To judge one’s vocation is the hardest task of youth. But God calls and His calling must not be mistaken. The first premonition of His calling is that the young man realize the great fruits of the Priesthood as compared to the emptiness of other vocations and that he have a desire for the things of God, a desire to continue Christ’s work on earth, and a firm realization as to his duty in life—the saving of his soul. Prayer is the only resource we have and it is the best, the only means that can banish one’s doubts. “More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of.” One’s calling demands great sacrifice, both physical and moral, the giving up of the pleasures of this life and perhaps, the taking of the vows of poverty, chasity and obedience. Nevertheless, a man, who has been chosen by God to be one of His representatives, is willing to do all this and more. A priest occupies one of the highest positions of prominence on earth and a higher one in heaven. The rewards that lie in store for him there cannot be estimated and here on earth he has advantages that are only given to the chosen few. Enjoying the title of being a representative of Christ on earth, he goes about doing his duty, bringing the grace of God to rich and poor alike. Leading this life of grace, his soul is dear to God and on that inevitable day, it will rise white and unblemished to receive its heavenly reward. This life is accompanied by a joy, a happiness that only the act of bringing souls to God could secure. To know that one has rescued a soul from destruction and set it on the path to glory, brings a feeling and a sense of elation to the soul that only a priest can feel and describe. A life of peace, tranquility of mind, happiness of soul, the enjoy¬ ment of the eternal friendship of God, is held out to t hose who answer His call. “Many are called but few are chosen.” Those who hear that call and forsake it, will never realize what a mistake they are making till it is too late. Many vocations are turned away by the pleasure of this world which dims the light that seeks to enter their souls to make them shepherds of the flocks. Here is this life; it is held out one hundred twenty-three to them with all its happiness and advantages; they should think be¬ fore they choose and choosing well, take the path that leads to God and eternal salvation, remembering that their merits will be in¬ creased an hundred fold for the sacrifices they make here in giving up home and liberty and all that is dear to them for Christ’s dear- sake. Donald A. Barnes m n Ct )t Squinas jllustc department The present school year has witnessed the greatest advancement in music yet attained in our school. Never before has such intense interest in this department of educational training been shown by the students in general. Early in the year, the music department was literally swamped by students seeking instruments and instruc¬ tion. The limited supply of instruments was quickly exhausted and a waiting list had to be established. With the help of new players and new instruments the advanced band was enlarged to concert proportions and the symphony orches¬ tra perfo rmed difficult selections with remarkable finesse. Each period in the school day is given over to a class in some one instrument or group of instruments. The beginning pupil is given individual instruction until his playing shows that he has acquired a certain degree of proficiency set by the director of music. He is next trained in ensemble playing and placed in the beginners’ band. When he deems it advisable, the director promotes the pupil to the advanced band and the symphony orchestra. In the course of a year the orchestra plays for all dramatic pre¬ sentations and graduation exercises and it reviews its work of the year in a concert given in the Spring. The advanced band plays for assemblies of special importance and it participates in the public celebration of Memorial Day. A concert is given in connection with that of the orchestra. It is the plan of the director of music, that in the near future concerts can be so arranged as to enable all of the players to per¬ form individually, or in small groups. We, who are leaving Aquinas now look forward to the day when such a plan can be put into effect. Gladly and expectantly shall we return to Alma Mater to witness its progress in music in the years to come. Edward J.

Why waste time and money teaching such an im¬ practical and useless subject as religion in school? Can’t a young person pick up all that it is neces¬ sary to know about religion from outside sources? The answer is NO and the thousands of schools founded and main¬ tained for the sole purpose of adding this Divine and sublime science to the usual curriculum of studies emphasize this denial. Before continuing let us reflect for a moment upon the matter of religion. Surely if we look upon life in its true light we cannot but agree that religion is the most important matter in it. Upon the way in which we live up to its precepts and commands depends our entire future state—eternity. While “Fortune, honor, beauty, youth Are but blossoms dying . . .” who is there so rash as to say that the all-important thing in life should be left to chance or that it is a waste of time and money to teach it in school even if we could acquire a knowledge of this science from outside sources? We know from experience that if the matter of religious edu¬ cation is left to chance, nine times out of ten, the young person will grow up without a practical knowledge of his duties and purpose in life. An example will best illustrate this. A young miner stood before the Judge in a Pennsylvania Criminal Court, convicted of wilful murder. Wishing to determine the youth’s depth of respon¬ sibility, the Judge began to question him. “How far did you go in school?” “I graduated from the public high school” came the reply. “Do you know Jesus Christ?” continued the Judge. “Sure” answered the youth, “I’ve heard his name mentioned frequently but I don’t know him personally. I don’t think he works in our shaft.” The audience laughed at the answer. To them it was funny but the wise old Judge sensing the tragedy only shook his grey head sadly for he realized that this young man was but one of many whose religious education had been left to chance and, as a result, he had grown into manhood without any knowledge of Him, Who suffered and died for mankind. Many people seem to be of the opinion that religion is no t a subject worthy to be taught in a modern scientific school. How false is this assumption! Because religion has come to be a cloak that is worn for a few minutes on Sunday and then hung in a dark closet until the following Sunday, many people have lost sight of its true significance. They do not seem to realize that religion con¬ tains more truths about life and human nature than the mind of man could conceive in ten thousand years. Browning tells us that if there is one thing that would make him hesitate to declare Chris¬ tianity false, it is the insight into human nature which it gives to those who study it. When we see the pitiful efforts of the modern twentieth century man to deal with his social problems, we realize what a great aid a knowledge of religion would be to him in the solution of these problems. A knowledge of the underlying prin¬ ciples of moral law tells us that the source of crime lies in man’s free will. Yet consider all the causes of crime that are being ad¬ vanced by so called educated men. Ten minutes study and an open mind would do more to show the causes of crime than years of scien¬ tific work. Surely if there is one subject which schools should vie in teaching it is the certain, sublime and Divine subject, religion. A school that teaches religion in this modern age stands apart from the common lot as a liberal arts school stands apart from the shop school. Here, the practical minded person objects that a religious educa¬ tion is worthless. He points to the large number of ‘so called’ Catholics in prison. “Why are there so many Catholics in prison,’’ he asks, “if a religious education teaches one to lead a good life?” At first glance this objection would seem difficult to refute. Surely there is no need of teaching dogma and morals that no one observes. However, if we examine the prison records more closely they show how efficacious a religious education really is. For only six percent of the ‘so called’ Catholic prisoners have attended a Catholic school even to the second grade. Thus for every Catholic who has passed the second grade in a parochial school and who goes wrong, sixteen who have not had even the rudiments of a Catholic education go wrong. There is yet a more vital reason why a Catholic should be so concerned about his religious education. Surely at this time when our Holy Father is emphasizing the idea of the lay apostolate to help spread the Faith no serious minded Catholic can know too much about his religion. Let us then become lay apostles and by example and conver¬ sation impart to others this Divine wisdom of which it has been our privilege to learn something in Rochester’s well known Catholic High School, our beloved Alma Mater, Aquinas. Gerard E. Keenahan one hundred, thirty-three HE DAY is near at hand when the Class of ’31 will draw the curtain on four eventful years. As the three preceding years have been amply recorded by our predecessors, it is our duty as well as our pleas¬ ure to contribute a last parting word to our beloved Alma Mater. How many boys have ever looked into the fu¬ ture? I am sure there is not a single person that has not pictured himself at one time or other seated majestically on a regal throne adorned with a crown and jewelled gown. We all enjoyed those dreams because they were the dreams of childhood. Now as youths, let us look into the far future when the numbers of our present day class shall have dwindled and its members become shriveled and worn to only a fraction of their for¬ mer selves. And then as old men made wise with the experience of many years, let us look back at our career at Aquinas. As such we can see vividly just what these years have meant. We can look back at them as into a mirror in which can be seen reflected life’s com¬ plete drama. And in that perspective we may be able to see the part these important " years have played in the subsequent plan of life. As we sit back in the peaceful contentment of our easy chair, and ruminate on our days at Aquinas, they appear full of meaning and significance. We see in those tender years the fostering of the sapling from whence a magnificent and stately tree was to spread. Just as the careful gardener watches over his young trees, we realize that Aquinas has ever been such a caretaker, seeing that no tree grew bent or began to droop prematurely. We may even liken Aquinas to a great moulding factory wherein hundreds of very young boys, fresh from the grades are placed for development. And after a long period of moulding and shaping they become fashioned into the finished product. In that product we see the labor of many hands and minds making it both intellectually and spiritually good. Now let us come back into ourselves and see what this deeper realization of the soul has done for us. As wee children we abhorred pain as a great evil, as something inflicted to make us miserable. But now under the new light we see it has a purpose. That purpose is to glorify the soul by accepting the pain tranquilly as an atone¬ ment for sin. We have been trained as Christian soldiers to avoid what is wholly material and tends to bodily pleasure. We learned that our Faith is both a consolation and a refuge in times of suffer¬ ing and sorrow and that the soul is the only thing worth while and should be nourished and protected because we are given only one and that one is immortal. My parting word is one of thanks and commendation in behalf of the whole senior group to the priests, Sisters, and laymen who labored so diligently among us during these four vital years making themselves a part of us. May God reward them and keep them for the sagacious moulding of other lives!

June in all its glory of bud and blossom is with us again. Commencement Day draws near when, with a sadness which we would not disclaim,, the Faculty must bid you good-by. Parting from those we love is not a joyous event; still, we re¬ joice in the anticipation of great accomplishment which we rightly await in your promising futures. Yours has been a lavish nurturing. Unselfishly give of its fruition for the greater honor and the wider spread of Christ’s Kingdom on earth. If in the years to come, you are tempted to question the possibility of living up to the high standard which has been set for you as carefully trained Catholic gentlemen, recall the life of one of your own ; take from your book shelf the copy of the “Captain of My Soul” which you were given on May twelfth, nine¬ teen hundred thirty-one. Read it with the openness of mind with which you then read it and having finished this spiritual romance, start out again with these words re-echoing in your souls, “Try it and see! Life is brief and crowded with swift moving situations and we only have one chance to live it heroically, one chance for heroism.” Like Francis Cullinan do not miss the chance. Graduates of ’31, your friends, the members of the Faculty of Aquinas Institute, wish you God-Speed. one hundred forty-three W Jokes; Have you ever considered the worth of a joke When you’re feeling downhearted and blue? It seems to dispel all those shadows of gloom And brightens the world to your view. Considering this fact let us now stop to read A few jokes that we’ll never forget If it hurts you to laugh, why, then just try to smile. There is no one that’s died from it yet. Funny what comes out of the ground in the spring—the peanut vender in front of the school, for instance. Ill Mr. Doyle, the French teacher and alumnus of the Old Cathedral days, when but a laddybuck was asked what was the quickest and surest way of separating gold. Whereupon he replied, “Get mar¬ ried.” We wonder what our distinguished linguist thinks about it now. H 1 I Claa ifieb Simons tfje €xtra=Curricular Sktitoittesi: 1. Listening to the melodic music of the steam pianos on the advertising trucks. When the gentle music resembling the noise made by a thawing radiator, is wafted to the ears of the young Aquinians, all work is stopped and their thoughts revert to the famous saying, “I love the classics.” 2. Eating pretzels during after-lunch periods. The rise of the pretzel in the cuisine of the Aquinas scholastic has been nothing short of meteoric and bids fair to become an institution along with Wednesday assemblies and page fifty, (and while we’re on it, this page fifty may be a task to some people but it looks like a publicity stunt to us.) 3. Watching the fire engines go tearing down Dewey Avenue. At the first sound of the fire-bell, all eyes are turned to the windows; some stand, some froth at the mouth, some grow hysterical. It is only after the last vision of the red paint and the wail of the siren have disappeared that p eace and order are restored. USD Might we suggest a new and convenient improvement in the school: a loudspeaker on one of the lamp posts on Dewey Avenue, connected with Father Grady’s office, whereby the voice of our Principal, greatly increased in volume, would announce the time to those students approaching the school at a late hour; discuss with them the advantage of getting up on time; encourage them to walk more rapidly or even to run; and guess as to the possibilities of their arriving at their homerooms before the last peal of the bell. hundred forty-four I) There is one weakness that I own, That’s sure to drag me down; It isn’t women, wine or song, It’s PRETZELS—crisp and brown. I love their salty flavor, I just adore their shape, And when I’m in their clutches, I simply can’t escape. It’s sure a lucky thing for me That they’re all the time in season, I’d walk a mile for one of them, “They’re toasted,” that’s the reason. When I am laid away at rest, And Life’s lesson I have learned, On a stone above me, write the words: “To Pretzel—dust he’s turned.” Gordon Keeling m ® (golf A golfer approached the tee to drive off and observed another maniac about to hit the ball which was lying on one side of the tee. Said golfer No. 1: Pardon me, sir , although I am a stranger to you, I want you to know I am a member of the Greens Committee and it is against the rules to drive off from that spot. The proper place is here between the markers. Whereupon said Golfer No. 2: Pardon me, sir, while I also ap¬ pear to be a stranger, I want you to know that I too am a member of this club and I am now getting ready to take my second shot. Pendelton Dudley I IH HI Two golfers sliced their drives into the rough and spent a long period in search of their balls. The fruitless marching to and fro were closely observed by a sweet old lady with a benevolent and sympathetic eye. Time went on and, as the sun was sinking in the west, the kindly old lady said: “I hope I am not interrupting, but would it be cheating if I told you where they are?” J. F.

Father Grady: “Well, Bragg, late again I see.” Bragg: “Well, Father, when I looked in the glass this morning I couldn’t see myself so I thought I’d gone to school. It was some time later that I discovered that the glass was out of the frame.” Father Dwyer: “McCurn use ‘beg’ in a sentence.” McCurn, (Startled from snooze) : “I beg your pardon, Father?” Father Dwyer: “Correct.” % Mr. Hurley: “When I was in high school I thought nothing of spending two hours an evening on my Latin homework.” Yount: “I don’t think very much of it myself.” 0 0 Flynn: “Well, dad, I’m a big gun at school now.” Mr. Flynn: “Fine, I’d like some better reports from now on.” one hundred forty-seven Golfer: Hey there! will you let me play through?

What was the license number of the car?” Professor: “I’m afraid I have forgotten it.

HUB Sandy fries his bacon in Lux so it won’t shrink. Father Morgan: “Explain ‘Out of sight, out of mind’ Stupkiewicz: “Invisible, insane.” one hundred forty-eight i?0©0 Since the yo-yo complex has hit Aquinas, it is only fair that the victims of this game know how the epidemic started. Well here’s the story: Baxter Yo, traveling for the Banana Split Fruit Company, Inc., landed in the Philippines on July 4, during a raging snow storm. Two days later while rushing blindly into the interior in search of bigger and better bananas, Baxter suddenly crashed into a gang of natives. “ZstichQuozonk” (which in the vernacular means “What the-”! ! is going on here?”) he cried. In perfect English a native replied: “Dear Sir: We are having a demonstration of the ancient and honorable game of the Macabees. Won’t you join us?” Thereupon, Baxter took his place which was in the ring side seats. And what do you suppose he saw? There under the boiling sun stood the native champ, rolling a snow ball up and down a lion’s whisker. Baxter’s eye immediately saw green (backs) in the idea. Jumping into his fliver, he»tore thru the woods for the Manila Patent Office. But what chance did he stand of reaching his desti¬ nation with anti-freeze in his radiator? Philip O’Loughlin 21 Restoration of @rber Then ceased the din, There reigned again, That silence often broken, Mr. O’Connell had spoken— “Page fifty!” There came a laugh, That incited wrath Down went another name. “You also do the same” “Page fifty!” With “take the next too”, “Make it fifty-two”, I’ll see you at three-fifteen, He made silence reign supreme “Quite Nifty.” A. Jerome Miller one hundred forty-nine The following letter is an example of the cheerful cooperation with which our advertisers fulfill their obligations: Dear Sirs: For the following reasons I am unable to mail the check asked for: I have been held up, held down, sand-bagged, walked on, sat on, flattened out and squeezed; first by the United States Government for federal tax, income tax, excess profits tax, war tax, state, county and city taxes and by every organization that a fiendish mind can invent to extract that which I may or may not possess; from the Society of John the Baptist to the Navy League, G. A. R., Wo¬ men’s Relief, Children’s Home, W. C. T. U., Darcas Society, Jewish Relief, American Relief, Salvation Army, Red Cross, Black Cross, Double Cross, and every hospital in the country. The government has so governed my business that I don’t know who owns it. I am inspected, suspected, examined and cross exam¬ ined, informed, reinformed and commanded, so I don’t know who I am, where I am, or why I am here. All I know is, I am supposed to be an inexhaustible supply of money for every known need, desire or hope of the human race, and because I will not sell, I have to go out and beg, borrow or steel money to give away. I have been cussed, discussed, boycotted, talked to, talked about, lied to, lied about, held up, hung up, robbed and nearly ruined, and the only reason I am clinging to life is to see what in God’s world is coming next. Yours sincerely, Simeon Simpson (M H S) Case? (on tfje toaxeb corrtbor) to Scferopb Whoops, my dear! The floor I fear, Is slippery past belief, My dignity (as you can see) Will surely come to grief. The polished tile, Reflects your smile, As you behold my plight, Safe on the stair, You hear me swear, While sliding left and right. The time will come, My laughing one, When you will take the burn. Enjoy my plight. With all your might Some day the worm will turn. Gordon Keeling “21 illobenu eb Jltptfj” Atalanta was a fetching minx, But, to many a youth, a fatal jinx. It was her infamous demand That, whoever hoped to win her hand Must first defeat her in a race, And, should he lose, forfeit his face. Milanion cried, “Boy, what a looker”; Deciding, then and there, to hook her And rid the country of a menace. So he betook himself to Venus; For three golden apples did he beg, With which to take her down a peg. Atalanta thought she could outclass him, But every time she tried to pass him A golden apple he would drop, And she, to pick it up, would stop. So thus Atalanta met her doom, And Milanion became the groom. Jack Goetz HUS! An Irishman looked for a long time at a cage in which was a kangaroo. After staring until his eyes nearly popped out, he walked away muttering to himself: Aw, begobs, there ain ' t no such animal. mm® Judge: Do you realize that you are facing the electric chair?

Reformer: Don’t you know that whiskey shortens a man’s life? Drunk: What’s the odds? Y’see twice as much at the same time. Drunk: I want a room. Clerk: Have you a reservation?

You must get our friend and co-maniac, John Callan, to tell you about the time he ate at Odenbach’s. She: Oh, isn’t the desert wonderful, dear? I believe the poets are right when they say that only in the great open spaces one finds oneself. He: Well, this is a good time to prove it. We are thirty miles from town, the sun is going down, the car’s out of gas and I’ve lost the road map. Boston Traffic Cop: Hey, you,—get going—what’s the matter with you ? Polite Driver: I’m just fine, thank you, but I think my engine is dead. Housewife—I haven’t much to eat in the house. Would you like some cake? Tramp: Yes. Housewife: Yes what? Tramp: Yes, dear. Telephone call to a bird store: Customer: Send me 30,000 cockroaches. Dealer: What on earth do you want with 30,000 cockroaches? Customer: Well, I’m moving to-day, and the lease says I must leave the premises in the same condition I found it in. Traffic Cop: Hey, you can’t make a right turn here. Driver: Why not? Traffic Cop: Well, a right turn is wrong. If you want to turn right, turn left, not right. Said the enthusiastic speaker at a church festival: “We Catholics are a fourth of the population, and, please God, before long we’ll be a fifth.” Guest: Seem to recall your face—met you here before, I fancy. Host: Very likely; it’s my house. Abie: Papa, what’s science? Papa: Dummer! Them things that says “Keep off the grass.” “I don’t like these photos at all’ said the freshman. “I look like an ape.” The photographer favored him with a glance of disdain. “You should have thought of that before you had them taken,” was his reply as he turned back to work. Tailor: “measuring graduate’s suit) : “What about a small de¬ posit, sir?” Graduate: “Just as you like. Put one in if it’s smart.” Qtt)t ong of a Mentor Our final year is nearly past, Since first our names made up the cast; Would that this were not our last! At Aquinas. The joys that were for us galore; The friendships that we had before; We’ll cherish but enjoy no more, At Aquinas. We shall recall in years to come Those days of pleasure and of fun; When we were molded for the run At Aquinas. Donald Principe Father Brien: “Who built the ark?” Dwyer: ‘No-ah.” Father Brien: “Correct.” Man: “How long have you been studying?” Boy: “Ever since Father Wurzer threatened to expel me.” Mother (who is teaching her son the alphabet) : “Now dearie, what comes after ‘g’?” Child: “Whiz.” Tommy—to aviator: “What is the most deadly poison known?” Aviator: ‘Aviation poison.” Tommy: “How much does it take to kill a person?” Aviator: “One drop.” An Englishman was once persuaded to see a game of baseball; during the play, when he happened to look away for a moment, a foul tip caught him on the ear and knocked him senseless. On com¬ ing to himself, he asked faintly, “What was it?” “A foul—only a foul!” “Good heavens!” he exclaimed, “A foul? I thought it was a mule.” A little poetry from a near relative will bear repetition: Title: Oft in the Stilly Night Oft in the stilly night, ere slumber’s chains have bound me, I think of the jokes I might have cracked when others were around me: And for my wanton waste of wit unceasingly I weep; And oft in the stilly night—I kick myself to sleep.

Theories properly conceived are guides to life. Education, in its broadest sense, is a morror of life and continues throughout the years. Rochester Business Institute takes every precau¬ tion to relate class room theories to actual conditions in the business world. Students see real life unfold¬ ing before them. They get a new vision, a new en¬ thusiasm. Featuring HOME STUDY COURSES Accountancy— Stenography— English Those who are unable to attend R. B.

Where the better values are, that’s where people buy and in¬ cidentally, that’s where you may buy with the absolute assurance, that the thing which brings others to The National is a something that you’ll find profitable, too.
