N Y May it 1933 Arete Board 1933 Aquinas Institute Rochester, New York Gentlemen: Your kindness this year Is recognised and appreciated by the Faculty and Students of Aquinas Institute. You have overcome the obstacles of "hard times" and against difficulties produced a volume of the Arete equal, If not superior, in quantity and quality to those of your predecessors. This achievement of yours calls for our commendation and latitude. I am quite certain that in this work you have found your labors and experiences personally and individually profitable. This alone is adequate compensation for your sacrifices. May God bless you! Very cordially (Ir JU £ ( Joseph E. Grady Principal ± fourteenJames P. Ailing “Jim” Behold! the salesman, winner of the 1932 mission ticket rice. Jim is also an enthusiastic musician, wielding a hall fiddle in our orchestra sad tooting a base tuba in tbt band. But we can't hold thase things against him. Good luck. Jim. Walter J. Ailing "Walt” Introducing the second half of the musical brothers. Walt is a true friend and a good sportsman. He plays baritone in the band, and his four years with the bow in Lht orchestra have made him a valuable addition. Besides he has qualities which will win him respect in the outer w»rld, as they have in Aquinas. Keep going Walt, the sky is the limit. Willard H. Amann "Romps" Romps is an ardent devotee of aviation and is quite an authority on the subject. Ask hits if any of his models fly. He is well liked and we all know that he will be a success in his chosen field. Luck, Romps. Alexander J. Andrews ••Alex" His keen wit has made Alex many friends both at Aquinas and in the AljoClub. He is a past master when it comes to playing basketball and he also proved to be a hard man to block in football. It is going to be just as difficult a matter to block you in after life. Alex. Cyril H. Barker “CV’ What is that saying about —Honor to whom honor is due?—Cy certainly deserves great honor. He is a good-natured. friendly and industrious chap. Math and science are his delights. Those squeaks which are heard at 3:20 are only the efforts of another Aquinas musician. Keep up the good work Cy. Success is yours. Robert G. Aulenbacher -Bob" Gaze on our Vice-President, a man of achievements! Bob was our first starring quarterback but we don't hold that against him. Did you hear the girls utter a sigh when Bob appeared in our Senior Play? You have a warm spot in our hearts too. Bob. Philip L. Appleby -Phil" Phil is the class's lankiest six footer. He has been active in orchestral work during his four years and he has also enlivened many a dull moment with his witty impersonations. He has a friendly smile and a knack of getting along with everybody. Viel Glflck. Phil! John H. Beach "Dynamite" One of the inseparable quintet, Johnny can add a bit of life to any party. He has caused many a feminine heart to flutter with his radiant personality. He is a fine fellow and an earnest student despite his slow, easy going manner. You have the best wishes of every member of the Class of '33. John. fifteenHerbert F. Bechtold “Herb" Look for Bill Carey and you are sure to find Herb. His artistic ability may be seen on all of his books. And oh ! Kiris, can he dance! Besides art. Herb has taken up music in a big way. We arc all pulling for you. Herb, and we count on your making the grade. John E. Bedford "Johnny" Let us present one of the most popular men of our class. Johnny is our Treasurer and the clever Sports Editor of the Maroon and White. His fine nature and pleasing personality stamp him as a true Aquinas gentleman, and we hope that th? future may prove just as sunny as his days at Aquinas. William R. Bergan "Bill" Bill is a happy, carefree fellow who does not believe in taking things too seriously. Because he refuses to worry over anything. Bill has that quality of good cheer which enables him to go over big in any gathering. Keep it up. Bill. A merry heart gladdens God and man. Daniel F. Bergevin "Dan" In all our years of pleasant association with Dan. we have envied his never failing readiness to smile. Even those problems in mathematics couldn’t draw a frown. Keep that even disposition, Dan, and success is in your grasp. We are sorry to think that we must say good-by. Edward J. Bilecki "Kd" Ed’s ability as a hand-ball player has been well demonstrated in those noon games on the first floor, south corridor. An able student and a prominent member of the German Club is Ed. To him. we say, not good-by. but Auf Weidersehen. Our best wishes follow. Joseph J. Bishop "Joe" Joe is one of the care-free members of our'class who always looks at the bright side of things. His smile is as constant as his companionship with Neil Campbell and both are the envy of his classmates. So long Joe. keep up the good work, and don’t forget your friends of thirty-three. Paul G. Bishop "Paul" The smaller of the famous Bishop Brothers. Paul, is an ardent admirer of Clark Gable and hopes someday to supplant him in the hearta of his feminine fans. Paul is a regular pal to his friunds and has a reputation for unparalleled generosity. Au re-voir. Paul! You take our beet wishes with you. Leonard F. Blonsky "Len" In Len one finds a man of few words but of fine personality. He is one of the Blonsky and Congdon Combine. the Minute Men of Home Room 318. Len has also shown his vocal ability in Mr. Hurley’s singing club. In losing Len we lose a prince of a classmate. sixteen Joseph A. Bottiglier Joe” Although of quiet disposition Joe at time can get rather lively and full of pranks as his pals in Mr. Martin's history class can testify. We hope your sense of humor will continue as a gloom-chaser when you leave Aquinas. Joe. We all wish you a successful future. Frederick G. Blum “Freddy” Small of stature but big of heart. Freddy's sunny disposition has proven to be a fertile field for popularity. During the past four years he has sailed from one acheive-ment to another with the greatest success. Our only hope is that his contagious smile will aid the Red Wings in their attempt to win a pennant this summer. Joseph I). Bonanno “Joe” Vivacious and clever are the two adjectives that describe Joe. Full of action, he assiduously devotes himself to his studies and has the reputation of being able to speak German with comparative ease. Aquinas will miss you, Joe. and wishes you great success in the medical field. John W. Boylan “Johnny” It is not hard to find John in a crowd. He towers above most of us. Although his wisdom as yet is not appreciated by Mr. Deviny, we expect to hear big things of John in the near future. In him Aquinas sends forth a true Christian gentleman, a vigorous exponent of Catholic ideals, a loyal alumnus. John W. Byrne “John” John is one of those people who possess the invaluable knack of calling everyone by his first name. He even calls teachers by nicknames when they are not around. John will ever be remembered by his classmates for to each of us he has been a true friend. Bon voyage, pal. John A. Butler “Jack” Jack is that amiable cashier on the west side of the cafeteria. You know, the fellow who always smiles when you pay for your pretzels. Besides being a businessman. Jack is also a splendid musician. May your smile and music continue to charm your friends. Jack, as they have at your Alma Mater. James J. Brady “Jim” Quiet and unobtrusive on most occasions. Jim is a source of constant merriment to his friends. He won dramatic laurels as The Coach in our school play. Jim plays shadow to Johnny Byrne, when the latter is in school. Au revoir, Jim. we wish you luck. William C. Burke “BiU” Bill's wit and cheerfulness have merited him a warm place in the hearts of the Senior Class. Quiet William is at his best in the science and math classes. His good work at Aquinas heralds his success in the engineering field. We shall certainly miss our Bill. seventeeneighteen William G. Carey “Bill” Here is Bill, a veritable gloom chaser. What he lacks in size he makes up in wit. Bill is one of our best examples of deserved popularity even though he has broken many a fair heart with his dashing appearance. Au revoir. Bill, and plenty of good luck! You know we are going to miss you and your humor. Michael D. Cerame “AfiAre” Mike is a Maroon basketball star. His ability in this sport is one of the reasons why he was placed on the first team of the “All Home-Room Stars”. May you be as successful at St. Michael’s as you were at Aquinas. Mike! Remember, we expect glowing reports from Toronto. Robert I . Charlton “Bob” Shades of Shelley and Mil-ton ! “Bob” is one of our sterling poets. His contributions to the “Maroon and White” were always welcomed by readers as well as by the editor. We begin to think that in some language "Charlton" rhymes with “Success". Bob. We hope so, too. George K. Christoff “Joe” Joe is a silent and very industrious chap both at work and at play. Perhaps he has heard that old phrase. "Work while you work, and play while you play”, for he surely does seem to live up to this rule. Keep it up “Joe" and you are sure to land on top and when you arrive remember the good days at Aquinas. Paul M. Byrne “Paul” Here is Paul, President of the Virgil Club, a brilliant student, quiet and unassuming. Paul knows that humility is more essential than learning, and so he is content to enjoy the hidden life. One can always turn to Paul for a serious conversation and so. expecting great deeds from you, Paul, we say. "Bona fortuna tibi.” Richard L. Callahan “Dick'' Even though Dick is usually on the wrong end of Mr. Dolan's “Quiet, please.” he can still hold his own with any teacher. Of course. Dick is serious once in a while (especially in Vergil class). He wants to be a lawyer but we think you are far too honest. Dick. J. Neil Campbell “NeO” Neil is a basketball player of ability and an ardent supporter of the intramural games. If he is as true to his work in the future as he is to his pal, Joe Bishop, success will be his. You have our best wishes for luck and success. Neil, and we are confident of realizing our wishes. Cormac G. Cappon “Cap” When one thinks of French. Cormac comes to mind (if one’s mind is big enough!), and vice versa. Nevertheless, his heart and body are in proportion and. aside from being a “would have been atheist." Cormac is a model student. Here’s hoping that you will hit the obstacles in life as you did the marks at Aquinas. Cap.Vincent W. Cirrincione ‘•vr Strength of character U a great asset in life and Vi seems to be aware of this. He has fashioned his days at Aquinas after the old motto. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". Vi aspires to be a baseball player and we are sure he cannot help succeeding if his record at Aquinas is any indication of his ability. Thomas I). Cloonan “Red" Red is one of the smaller members of the class. His fiery thatch brightens his already cheerful countenance so that he is sure to make you feel as happy as Red invariably is. Greet the world in the same way. Red, and good luck is sure to follow in your path. John J. Colvin “John" Here one views a quiet and reserved gentleman who is industrious in streaks. He is a good friend of Mr. Martin and a so-called “woman hater”. In John we lose a loyal friend and supporter on whom his classmates could always rely for assistance. We regret to say good-by, John, but the best of friends must part. Gerald M. Congdon “Jerry” Good old Jerry is a friend of everyone. He is quite a student in his line but this line surely is not Chemistry. He is attentive and fairly well versed in English although he is not an oratorical genius. Well, Jerry, if the future holds no Chemistry everything will be bright and rosy. So. here’s hoping! Howard G. Cook “Cooky" Cooky is one of those strong silent men with a vivacious and witty personality who is resolved to stand the world on end. Good Luck Cooky! You must not disappoint us but we know you are too resolute for that. John J. Coughlin “Jack" Jack’s jokes will always be remembered by fellow class-men and members of the faculty. He is an ardent participant in basketball and baseball. Here’s hoping you will be as successful in the future as you have been at Aquinas. Au revoir. Jack ! Ray C. Countryman “Farmer" Farmer Countryman is one of the school’s best musicians. He plays the sax and clarinet with “finesse”. If he had a few more years here, maybe. he’d learn a few more instruments. He hope to be a famous musician some day. Well, you are off to a good start, Ray ! Paul A. Croce “Pant" Who is the silent and serious fellow ? No, he is not one of the profs, but one of the Class of 33, Paul Croce. At every recess one may see him struggling over a game of bridge and believe me. he’s a winner. Keep your sunny disposition. Paul. With it not only can you keep your pals but ever increase their number. nineteentwenty Charles 11. Cunningham ••Chuck" Behold our gentleman who can drive a different car everyday ! We think he likes to play bus-driver, though. Chuck has our best wishes for the success which his beaming countenance should insure. Remember your friends at Aquinas in the years to come. Chuck. Nicholas J. DellaPorta "Nick" Nick has determined to pursue an arts course and win for himself the B. A. degree. Nick is one of those rare specimens who say little but do much. One as ambitious as he very seldom fails und I know that his friends bid him "heureux jours ’. Myron W. Cucci "CoocA” In Myron we have one of the popular members of our Senior Class. For the past four years he has devoted himself to science and math and in them he has earned laurels. When Cooch graduates from M. I. T. the engineering world will acquire a clever member. We shall not forget you. Myron ! George J. Dash "Hud" Bud is the wittier half of the Pestorius-Dash combination whose extraordinary humor has made many otherwise dull and uneventful days more cheerful and interesting. So long. Bud. and may your cheerful disposition bring you ever more popularity in the future. William A. Daggar "BiU" Bill's rare ability to give short witty speeches in Father Morgan's English Class stamps him as one of the up and coming orators. At all the football games Bill was present bubbling over with enthusiasm and cheering his team on to victory. Dartmouth appears to be the next stop for Billy and may it prove a successful one! Donald E. Dailey "Don" This is the young man who seems to have the holding up of dismissal down to an exact science. Although he is one of Mr. Dolan's pet pests he has the best wishes of his classmates as he mounts the ladder of success. To the last man. your classmates are backing you. Don. John K. De Marie "John" Another of those strong silent men. John is seldom heard of except after examinations. Someday we shall wake up to find him in with J. P. Morgan and some of the other '‘boys’ . O. K., John, when you enter this combination remember your Aquinas days and the class of '33. John E. Dengle "John" John maintains that good things come in small packages. Known throughout the school by his brilliant suspenders. John is liked by all. A member of the musical organisation and a permanent member of Mr. Doyle's 3:20 club, he is also a brilliant athlete and claims the highest golf score in the school. Good Luck, John. Km Frederick J. Desrochers “Fred" Fred's reputation for sartorial efforts is unequalled. He has worthily earned the name of Fulcher from Mr. Hurley. Nevertheless Fred is a real fellow and a student who has man axed to keep his record above the average. If his success in life equals his success in neatness. Fred will be a great man. So long. Fulcher I John J. Driver "Jim" Jim is a generous friend und a good fellow who gets himself and others into trouble with his merry laughter. He is a big man with a big voice who hates to keep secrets from anyone. Auf Wie-dersehen. Pal! We shall not forget you when we say good-by to our Alma Mater. Pasquale J. Dinolfo “Pat" Fasquale will be remembered for his ever present smile. This husky, well-developed Senior's wit has a place in every class. Your good work here. Fat. well augurs your success in the outer world. Plenty of luck. Pat! Show the Canadians what an Aquinas man can do. Glenn C. Dugan "Glrnn As modest as he is. Glenn cannot but boast that he never had to fulfill Mr. Dolan's order for one "Literature and Life" preface. Perhaps he is slow in making friends but. when he does, this son of Erin proves a true and loyal pal. Good-by. Glenn, you have our heartiest wishes for good luck. Arthur H. Donovan “Art" This big fellow is one of Mr. Doyle’s stars in French. He is a quiet chap so many of his deeds have gone unsung. We are sure that you will make your presence felt in later years. Art, and when ou come into your own remember. "We told you so." William O. Edell “WiUy" Willy has won many lasting friends with his never failing smile. His only weakness is his passion for yellow. He was a howling success as social editor, even though he did obtain the reputation of being a "sob sister" from Mr. Dolan. We wish you the best of luck. Willy. Richard V. Driscoll “Dirk" Dick is a new comer to Aquinas, but in his one year of hard work he has made many friends. He breezed in from Dansville. that great big city, with a clarinet and a smile. Combined with a sedate and calm exterior we find an oratorical genius and n good musician. The best of luck. Dick. Herbert P. Esse “Herb" Herb likes his fun. He’s steady in his work though. The banter doesn't bother him. Do your best. Herb! You are one member of our class upon whom we all are banking. Don’t disappoint us as this would be a hard blow to the class of 33. twenty-oneClayton J. Faulkner "Clayt" Behold. Clayt. the popular track captain in The Poor Nut and an assistant editor of our year book I What a man ! His pursuits keep him busily engaged but they do not dim his happy-go-lucky smile and his spirit. May that spirit push you on to higher things as life progresses. Clayt! Charles J. Ferris “Speed’' The big question in the Senior Class is: Who has ever seen Charlie ruffled or alarmed ? He is a great French student, and may be found almost anytime indulging in his favorite sport— translating French. Farewell. Charlie, we shall watch your climb to success. Will you do it a la francaise or in true American style? John E. Finnegan “Spud” Look him over! Quiet, industrious and always (unconsciously ) in hot water around school—that's Jack. He’s a little bashful with the women folk too. but on the golf course! Well, keep both eyes on the ball. Spud. We are looking to you to defend the name and fame of the class of ’33. Herbert J. Flack “Herb” Herb has been supplying the rhythm for the band and orchestra for four years and we all find his work very satisfactory. His bright smile, his wit and drumming will surely be a loss to Aquinas but we hope to keep connections through the radio. Best of luck. Seedy, remember music hath charms. John K. Gallagher “Jack” John is a French student extraordinary and the longer member of the Gallagher-Colvin duo. The class of thirty-three wishes him great success in the business career to which he aspires. In years to come we shall be glad to be ranked among your numerous patrons and friends. Jack. John L. (iambic "Jack" Jack belies his last name. He is sure-fire in sports, as a pal, and last, but not least, in studies. He is the senior member of a four year partnership of Gamble and Gargan. Whether or not they team up in life, we know Jack will rise even if he must rise alone. Go to it. Jack! Ralph J. Gargan "Ralph" Little Ralphy has a weakness for the fair-sex, especially blondes. His wavy hair causes many a youthful heart to flutter when he appears at a dance. In spite of the fact that he is quite a modern Adonis. Ralphy has our best wishes for luck and success. George F. Gargano "Georpe" George is a systematic and diligent student and his marks bear out this claim. Perhaps that is why he has been so successful at Aquinas. At any rate. George is striving for a professional career and we not only feel sure he’ll make good at medicine but we wish him luck a-plenty in his profession. twenty-twoStephen A. Gianni “Steve” Steve in a boy who spends many hours in meditative reading but very few on his studies. Though without intentions of further schooling. Steve has an overwhelming desire to travel. Go to it. Steve, but don’t forget your classmates when you are somewhere in the depths of the African Jungles. John M. Gibbons “Jack” Introducing our Class President. His popularity has been well earned. Jack is a scholar and a real friend, never too busy to lend a helping hand or a cheery smile to a troubled classmate. Au revoir. Jack, and may success always reward your efforts ! Don’t forget those who gave you your first official tide. Edward J. Guider “Ed” Ed is the ever smiling young man who is responsible for our year book. His ability at basketball aided 306 in attaining distinction at that sport. As assistant editor of the Maroon and White, his columns have been the source of much amusement to its readers. Don’t lose your good disposition, Ed. and you can't fail. We are all with you. Ed. William B.Guldenschuh “Bill” Here is a gentleman whom we expect someday to see absorbed in a litter of test tubes and chemical contraptions. “Research.’’ he will tell you. “is its name.” It is a fine field. Bill, and surely can make a fortune for you, if you persevere. It will be our joy when we read in the daily's headlines. “William B. Guldenschuh, Chemist!" Frank J. Gugel “Frank” They tell Frank that math is difficult but his answer is a smile. Who wouldn't smile if he possessed Frank's genius and his eagerness to tackle hard work ? Such a persevering, ambitious, and industrious lad cannot fail to attain his goal. We'll all be glad to hear of your success. Frank. Edward G. Gutmann “Ed” Generally the studious find little time to spend in the company of the rest of men, but Ed. ever a hardworking boy. can always be seen laughing and joking with the rest of his fellow seniors. Good-by. Ed. Our best wishes for a bright and happy future go with you. Joseph C. Gugliandro “Joe” Here is a boy who with quiet and unassuming manner has made many friends at Aquinas. Besides being a good athlete, he has shown great interest in his scholastic work. When Joe leaves us. he will leave behind him none but happy memories. We are sorry to part with you, Joe. James R. Hall “Jim” What are future Senior classes going to do without Jim and his ever abundant supply of energy and good humor? What a loss it will be! The History Club loses a president. Aquinas loses a man with the spirit that will never say die and we. seniors, lose a real pal. Jim. we bid you good-by and good luck. twenty-threetwenty-four Leonard Hall “Len" For four yean we have had Len's smile and pleasing personality in our midst. He helped his home room win the Indoor-Baseball championship and we give him our best wishes for as good fortune in life. Keep up the good work, Len ! Francis C. Hehnlein "Frank" Frank's good nature and jovial smile have won the admiration of the whole Senior Class. His accomplishments as orator and debator are unexcelled: he is president of our debating club, and a member of the Saint Thomas Club. His role in the Senior Play helped to make it a success. Hail and farewell. Frank! Robert C. Hendrick "Bob" A small but mighty man is Bob. He has proven his prowess in basketball and baseball, and he always comes through in the exams with laurels. His quiet, amiable nature has won many friends who will surely be proud of Bob's future success. We shall be proud of you, too. Bob. as we have been throughout the four years spent at Aquinas. John L. Hill "Bunker-Bunker is our class's smallest member—in stature, but not in deeds. Although he has a good time, he manages, by some secret power, to keep up in his studies. Keep up the good work. Bunker, we’re all with you! Charles W. Jones "Charley" Here is a Senior of the strong, silent type. A conscientious student and a popular classmate, the members of the class of thirty-three join in wishing him good luck. Always remember your Alma Mater. Charley. Frank T. Kelly "Frank" Quietly and steadily Frank goes about his daily task. His loyalty and companionship have endeared him to every Senior and we all know that the future holds great things in store for him. Be true to the ideals of an Aquinas gentleman. Frank, and we shall all be proud of you. George F. Kelly "George" George, who is continually amazing Mr. Deviny with theories. can usually be found around the candy counter during lunch periods. An ardent supporter of athletics. George never misses an opportunity to get into a game. If persistence is a sign of success, your future is assured. George. John J. Kihn "Jack" If we can stretch our imagination a few years, we shall no doubt find Jack engaged in scientific research. He is a real bug of radio and science. He is a man whom Aquinas can ill afford to lose. If your radio does not function properly, call on Jack. He is sure to set things right for you.  George R. Koerner "George" An ideal student, the joy of every class, is George. the able editor of the Maroon and White. May your success in life be just as great as it has been at Aquinas is the wish of your classmates and teachers. Proudly does Aquinas send you forth as a true alumnus, a cultured. Catholic gentleman. Glen T. Kunz "Glen" Glen has many friends, mainly because of his cheerful and friendly disposition. Never does he show a sign of gloom despite his studious aspect when deeply engaged in absorbing knowledge. You ought to see him in the physics lab. Someday he will have one of his own. Good-luck. Glen. Albert R. Koch "Al" AI is the man who so ably took the part of J. Clarence Biddeford in the Senior Play. He is a good student, a good actor and a good friend. Remember the Marigold, Al? Let that be a lesson to you. Keep the menu card away from your girl, J. Clarence, and in this way you will keep your money in your pocket. Gerald R. Kunz "Jerry" Give him a poke in the ribs or a slap on the hack—he always comes up with a smile. In Gerald we have a student of proven scholarship abilities ; an exceptional oboe and English horn player (remember Bolero) a star math and chemistry student; and the secretary of our class. What more could any man desire? J. Walter Knapp “.Scoop” This is the lad who revived the reign of terror in 306 with his window pole. Ask Dcsrochers. He is one of the triumvirate of Spud. Scoop and Soapy and has afforded much amusement and reluxation to his classmates who have enjoyed his clowning. Good luck. Scoop! “A little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men”. William K. Kuhn “Bill" A bit shy and timid and the answer to a teachers prayer describes Bill in the classroom. To the world, he is just another town boy who made good, but to us he is one who has made life merry at Aquinas. Good-bye "Bill”, you have carved a niche in our hearts. Now carve one in the heart of the world. Donald J. Kridel "Don" Like Rubinoff. Don has an orchestra which does him credit. However Don is not Russian, so do not be alarmed. He may go to the top in a rush, but it will be in a sane American way and we shall all join in the shouting when he arrives. Thomas S. Leary "Tom" Tom is one of the Lakes id-ers who come a long way to Aquinas. He has a fine pair of dancing feet and he goes to all the dances when the bank-roll permits. Tom never allows his studies to interfere with his driving pleasures. Keep up that old Irish spirit and show the world. Tom. twenty-fiveJames C. Levis “Jim” Another diminutive member of the class. Jim ii a good student although he has sometimes had a wee bit of trouble with American history. Perhaps the reason is he is out to make ‘new history. Go to it Jimmie, Napoleon did. Michael A. Man Kano Mike” Behold our Daniel Webster—the one who argues almost any of Father Marks' statements. But even with this tendency to argue, Mike makes an agreeable companion and a true pal. Keep it up, Mike, success surely will come to you in life and then recall the prophecy of your classmates. Joseph H. Lynch ‘‘Smokcy” Old Smokey Joe has been the envy of all his classmates and the answer to his teachers' prayers. His ability to obtain high marks in all his work and especially in math, has rivaled Swalbach's and Frank's. You are our glory and our pride. Joe. keep it up to the end. Gerard J. Marks “Gerard” Gerard is a Senior who can truthfully boast that he hasn't an enemy. He is a modest, reserved young man always pleasant and jovial. Gerard’s success in life is assured. We’re with you. Gerard. go to it! Don't forget us when you are President. We know you will even then be loyal to Alma Mater. Samuel M. Macano '‘.Sam” Sam was the admiration of all the seniors because of his marks in apologetics. No one could figure out how it was done without carrying the book home, but Sam did it just as he will lick the business world in the days to come. More power to you, Sam. Raymond J. Marlins •'Ray” Through his wit and friendliness. Ray has won a place in the hearts of his classmates.

But a few months, sad to say. will deprive us of both. Good-by. Louie! Ralph C. Marton "Ralph" Ralph is our idea of the perfect senior, an ambitious, agreeable, good-natured, level-headed fellow. We shall certainly miss Ralph but the memories of his four years companionship will always remain with us. Success is surely in store for him and in it we shall all rejoice. John F. McCann "Johnnie" Behold the gentleman with the appearance of a cherub! John is said to be quite an artist and knowing him as we do. we are sure that he will soon rank among the best.

There is liable to be a migration which would be fatal to Carl's hitherto good scholastic standing. Always come up smiling. Carl, and remember the class of thirty-three. Fred I). Pestorius “Fred” One of our stellar gridiron heroes. Fred astonished us by his thespian ability in the Senior Play.

Lawrence L. Peters “Larrg" When you want a strong, amiable controversa!ist just consult I awrence. He is able to debate on any topic and he puts his knowledge into practice.

Rae “Harry Harry is the Vergil Club's “Rae” of light but his cheerful disposition has invaded other fields. Harry's name has often been found on the Honor Roll and we hope it will be found on the Roll of Honor in life. It will if your classmates can put it there, Harry. George M. O’Brien A clanging and jiggling is sufficient evidence of the presence of George and his collegiate car. His ability on the gridiron is indeed overwhelming. Politeness and humor gush from this country lad in excess. Don't let anything keep you from being a success, George- James P. Neary “Jim” Jim's winning personality along with his pugnacious spirit on the gridiron and his alertness on the court has distinguished him at Aquinas. His departure will be a loss to both his home mom and the football team. Success to you. Jim! Jack W. Otto “Jack" This little blonde giant has been the life of many a class and the trial of many a teacher at times also. In spite of this however he is a good student and we know that the sky will be the limit in his rise to fame and fortune. twenty-nine James G. Rockwell “Jim" Jimmy has Rained great renown through his French horn and "Dizzy Rimes". He has spent four years at Aquinas which are much to his credit and we sincerely hope his future may be equally profitable. Good-by. Jim! Bernard J. Rogers "Barney" Barney’s fame rests on his ability to keep one of the historic "Twenty Millions" on the road. It is somewhat perplexing to determine the time, manner, and place where this "Henry Ford" will run out of gas. Vale. Barney ! We hope you’ll manage to keep going. James G. Sander Vim" James is the handsome candy salesman in our cafeteria. Two years at C.M.T.C. has given Jimmie a very military carriage. Let’s hope he cares more for his history teacher than he does for the subject itself. Good Luck. Jimmie! Myron J. Scharr “My” Quiet and unassuming with plenty of pep when the occasion demands. My is a convenient member of the one o'clock physics class with his continuous questions. Auf Wiedersehen. My. and may you always continue to keep your curiosity within bounds ! Charles F.

Go out and show the world what you have already shown here at Aquinas. Henry L. Schlueter “Hank” Hank is slow to talk but when he does, we listen, because he knows whereof he speaks.

Schlueter "Gcorgir” Here is the boy with the old car. the curly hair and the wish to be a chemist. George is the first of the triumvirate. Schlueter.Burke, and Schlueter. Don’t forget your old pals when you leave us. Schultz! We’ll miss the familiar tan top in the rear of Aquinas. Theodore T. Schottke “Ted" Ted has earned quite a name for himself on the golf team. His only fault lies in his daily nap in math class. Nevertheless he has proved his worth to his classmates and we have great respect for Ted's ideals. So long, Ted! Rip VanWinkle slept twenty years. Was it? ▼ Leo C. Shatzel “Pretzels” Quiet, carefree and always happy that’s Pretzels. HU ability on both the basketball court and baseball diamond constantly proves disastrous to hU opponents.

Sob “Prof Meet the boy who U responsible for the plentiful supply of sunshine at Aquinas all the year around. The source of sunshine, of course, is his big round smile. Is there any obstacle which that smile cannot overcome? If there U. he hasn’t met it yet and we don’t think he ever will. William C. Speis “Bar A heart to convince, a mind to direct, and a hand to execute is the summary of Hill's character.

Staub “Chet” Chet is that laughing little fellow, who might be able to pinch hit for “Shadow Smart,’’ He is a likable fellow who continually reminds us that “good things come in small packages” and we are inclined to believe they do.

A good Latin student (ask Mr. Hurley) ; a hard worker (ask Miss Gou-garty) a real friend (ask Dugan) : a sure gloom chaser (ask anyone). What will Aquinas do without Charlie? Joseph P. Tiefel “Joe” Joe is a real fellow and is bound to be a success but there is one thing we can’t understand, — why he is called "Phizz." Always bbar in mind. Joe. that "Karly to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise". Perhaps you have outgrown these bedtime stories, Joe. Thomas J. Tiernan “Tom” A man of many secrets, Tom is quite an all-around student and dancer. Tom just loves the sweet things in life, meuning cundy of course. Although a good English speaker. Tom seems to stutter a bit in French. Maybe this is a vulnerable point. Good luck, Tom. but if you ever go to Europe, forget there is a place called France on the map. thirty-two Frederick J. Szymanski “Freddy” Fred is one of the idols of Dutch Town and also one of its strongest boosters. Freddy says that he has an uncle in Congress who has more power than the President ? Besides being a clever storyteller. he proved himself to be a worthwhile football center. He is an accomplished artist in digging divots out of a golf course. Good-by. Fred. Kdward H.

Joe’s jovial disposition has won for him the admiration of all his associates. Bona fortuna. Joe! Robert J. Wahl "Hob" We shall always remember Bob as that aggressive young fellow who tore opposing lines to shreds as half-back on the varsity. He has excelled also in other sports, having been chosen on the All-Scholastic basketball team and having captained the golf team. We all recognize Bob’s abilities and realize that in him we are losing a fine friend. Richard J. Welch "Dick" Here is another of those silent members of the class ; silent until some big question is at stake. Then Dick speaks and Aquinas listens. He is known throughout the school as a brilliant apologist and student of French. So long, Dick, we’ll miss you! Some day we hope to listen to Senator Welch in a radio broadcast from Washington. Paul W. Walz "Paul" Paul is one of our German adherents and a good, all around fellow. His ready smile and winning ways make him popular with all his classmates. As a growing clerk. Paul is a huge success. Good luck. Paul, may success stay with you through life and may you always have as few enemies as you have at Aquinas. William P. Waterman ••Red" Red is the type of student all teachers like. He prefers silent prudence to loquacious folly and seldom is he apt to be seen moving fast save on the basketball court. Fear not. Red. for slow and steady wins the race, and you are well on the way. Your classmates. everyone, will cheer you when you reach the goal. John M. Weider "Jack" Do not let Jack’s reticence deceive you ; it is not because he has to be silent, as he is a good, hard-working student. concealing his knowledge by a mask of silence. We are sure his application to his work merits him success in whatever he chooses to do. Good luck. Jack !thirty-four Francis W. Wisehmeyer ••Jake" Jake is bent known among most seniors as a loyal and steadfast friend. He presides over the German Club in his spare momenta. We all know that if you play the game of life as you play football. Jake, you are bound to succeed whether you play it as a football coach or a German instructor at Aquinas Institute. Everett J. West "West" Everett is one of the youngest members of our class but still he is able to hold his own at lacrosse. Here’s hoping that you will obtain that Ph.D. you are trying for. It is with much regret that we say Auf Wiedersehen to our golden-haired youth who has won all our hearts during the past four years. Austin F. Whalen “Osste” Gaze on one of the most quiet fellows in Aquinas. Although of an unassuming nature. Austin is a good mixer and above all. a scholar. In the future we expect to see him among the ranks of prominent literary men. We join in wishing you the best of luck. Austin. George A. Wilkin "George" Here is another one of those rarities at Aquinas, a boy who never gets into trouble. George believes in conservation of energy, his own energy. He still hopes that at some time he may have the pleasure of discovering a mistake in Mr. Doyle's Francaise. Go to it. George. Mr. Doyle doesn't worry about a little thing like that. Howard I). Wilson "Doc" Doc earned his nickname from his ability to dissect flies in Mr. Hurley's study period during our sophomore year. He is quiet and persevering. He wants to be an architect and we wish him the best of luck In achieving his purpose. When we are ready to have our houses placed on paper. we'II come to you. Doc. Joseph C .Witzigman "Joe" Joe's ability to put an indoor baseball across the homeplate so fast that it could not be seen by the batter has won the pennant for his homeroom. When Joe isn't down to hard work, he is usually riding Ray Marling. Don't let it get you, Joe, good people grow fewer every day. Alvin N. Woerner "Al" Gaze on the thorn in Father Morgan's side during Apologetics class. Al has two objections to every proof and isn't a bit bashful in bringing them up. This coupled with his fiery orations in history clas shows his ability as a thinker. It is thinkers this old world needs. Al. Francis J. Zagaieb "Frank" “Hear me for I will speak’ is the familiar phrase of Frank whose hobby is arguing in the English class. He is widely known for his physics experiments and also as a prophet of good times. A laugh is worth a hundred groans in any market and little Frank is always ready to set the example to others. I.augh your way through life, Frank.thirty-fiveOur Bishop 0UR work is finished here arid as hoys do when work is done we turn for judgment to him whose care has supported us, whose kindness has inspired us, whose council has directed and enlightened our ways. When the lawyer in the Scripture, tempting Our Lord, asked Him who was the neighbor whom he must love, Our Lord, in His wisdom, told of that Samaritan who, finding him who was wounded and forsaken, gave him ointment for his wounds and his hand in guidance to a place of safety. We were struggling in ignorance and bewildered by the maze of paths that faced us. Through you, dear Bishop, we have realized, in these four years, a growing force combating ignorance of faith and knowledge; we have felt your hand in guidance and by it found within that maze the one true path. These efforts of our hands and minds are poor return indeed for what we have received but they are all we have and them we give with every fervent hope that we have not proven ourselves altogether unworthy of your aid; that seeing it you may recognize a light of truth which came to us from God through you. The Class of ’33HMma itlater, gour on$ of £fjirtp=Cfjree JBib J)ou Jfaretuell Jfour Pears Four years I spent within the walls; Four years I wandered through its halls; Four years I learned about my God; Four years my mind was made more broad; I know I’ll miss it, miss it all— For years. James G. Rockwell URING our first three years in Aquinas, and, perhaps even during the earlier days of our Senior year, we often said that we should be glad when our high school days were over. I do not mean to imply that we are not eager to face the world when I say that now, when we are on the home stretch, we begin to grasp more fully the significance of graduation. Chief among the realizations which the approach of Commencement brings to us is the truly Catholic influence with which our Alma Mater has surrounded us. We have enjoyed a Christian education the value of which appeals to us more and more as the end draws near. Truly are our teachers of God and our Reverend Directors successors of the Great Teacher Who commissioned them to “Teach all nations.” We have learned from these instructors that the one great aim in life is obtained only by having a knowledge of and a reverence for our Divine Teacher and Saviour. We are grateful for the aid they gave us in obtaining this all-important knowledge and it is with great sorrow that we leave their kind and understanding protection. To these teachers who have labored so diligently for us we pledge undying loyalty to the Great Lawgiver and to His doctrines which they have so consistently inculcated by teaching and example. We ask them in turn to forget all our juvenile pranks, all our childish willfulness which must have caused them at least momentary worry. Now the curtain is falling. Soon we shall face a world which will show us little of the kindliness displayed in our happy world of the last four years; but as God’s Chosen People were miraculously led out of the desert so shall we follow our “Pillar of Cloud”, our Alma Mater, over the sands of life. Farewell! Edward Guider |E) tVfc thirty-seventhirty-eight nnug Sanctus ALENDIS APRILIBUS, pater noster venerabilis, Pius XI, annum precis satisfactionisque decrevit, ut Domini nostri Jesu Christi mortem, quae ante mille et nongentis annis accidit, commemoremus. Hie Annus Sanctus introduces est, cum Sacra Janua celebrata in Basilica Sancti Petri a Pontifice Romano, cum spectaculis cere-moniisque ad medium aevum pertinentibus, aperta est. Omnes, qui has ceremonias pulchras viderint, id esse spectaculum dicunt, quod numquam e memoriis suis fugiat. Est prima occasio in historia, cum mors Christi sic commem-orata est. Omni anno Nativitatem atque Resurrectionem Suam celebramus, et Annos Jubili commemorantes Suam Nativitatem tenuimus. Nunc crudelem mortem Suam honoramus. Ante mille et nongentis annis Jesus Christus, quern Filium Dei incarnatum esse scimus, in cruce inter duos latrones pro nobis passus et mor-tuus est. Talis mors habita est ignominiosa, atque malefactores soli sic interfecti sunt. Totam vitam Suam Christus praecepta nova morum docuerat. Moralia praecepta consuetudinesque hominum tarn magnopere mutaverat, ut virtutes populariores quam crimina facta erint. Morte Sua haec praecepta confirmavit, quod post tres dies Ipse e sepulcro resurrexit, probans sine dubito Se esse Deum. Nobis Jesus Christus jus officiumque dedit, ut laetitiam aeternam spera-remus et contenderemus. Imperavit ut nobis vita haec bene vi-venda esset, si laetitiam aeternam obtinere vellemus. Tempore anxietatis, nos adulescentes Catholici nostra in re-ligione solatium maximum pacemque habemus, quae in terra ipsa obtinere possimus. Cum amici ac fortuna nos deseruerint, ad Ecclesiam, sponsam Christi. ire possumus, et omnes curas nostras ad altaris pedem effundere. Est hoc tempore cum religionem aestimamus, quam Deus per Filium Suum nobis dederit. Certe Hie Annus Sanctus apto tempore venit. Forsitan preces, quas hoc anno Deo offeramus, Ipsum movebunt, ut curis huius mundi miseretur. Cum circumdamur desperatione et turpitudine et ab hominibus sine occupatione, bene misericordiam Dei petere possumus. Praeterea hie annus nobis adulescentibus Catholicisforty esse debet res aliqua plus quam decretum, cui paremus si volumus. Conemur postulata otticia perficere, quasi decretum Christi sit. Cum plurimi Romam non ire possimus, tamen nos, sequentes volun-tatem Papae, conari indulgentias accipere possumus. Nos Catholici, et etiam omnes populi, certi esse possumus, si nos partem nostram facimus, nos iterum pacem atque res secundas hac in tellure nostra visuros esse. Deus pacem et laetitiam nobis det, atque annis futuris beneficia temporalia aeternaque donet pro factis, quae hoc anno honore in Suo geremus. C. Cappon, G. Koerner Sjanbs The eye is the light of the soul—so they say— The clear eye, the brown eye, the blue and the gray. But have you considered the hands which we use? And even perhaps, the hands we abuse? There’s the lean hand, the strong hand, the long and the fat, That of the miser like the claws of a cat, That clinks his gold florins all through the night And stacks them up high from the dusk to the light. The lean hand, the hand of ascetic and saint. The hand of Our Lady, our Queen without taint, The hand of the surgeon, so quick and so sure. The gnarled and knotted brown hands of the poor. The hands of the flutist, so light and so deft. The hands of the blind of all sight bereft, Hands so all-seeing, they ne’er need their eyes, Since their all-seeing hands take their place, I surmise. The hands of the baby, so tiny and fat, Pulling and teasing his poor little cat. But the hands of just One were ever endowed. With the power to do the things He allowed His to do. With the hands of the toiler, so hard and so much Abused, this carpenter’s Son cured the dumb with His touch. He mixed the spittle and clay of the earth, Applied to the eyes of him, blind from his birth. But those sacred Hands by huge nails were transfixed Three hours to the cross, two robbers betwixt. “Manus Salvat’ris Qui passus es nobis, Da nobis Sanguinem qui fluxit ex Vobis!" Walter E. Fleming, ’34m fEfjougfjt Jfor Commencement 2Dap Men and nations unite in worship in commemoration of the birth of Christianity, in patriotic zeal for the realization of liberty and the dawn of independence and in tribute to the names of heroes upon whose self sacrifice and loyalty their country has been founded and has endured. Seniors, you have labored and your reward is great indeed. Much of it you have received in the training of your minds and souls for manhood; much of it you will reap in the future years of happy recollection. Commencement Day is your day; is your parents’ day; is your friends’ day. How much more satisfaction there is in work for some one else! How much sweeter becomes a victory when shared by those whom we love! This one day is yours. Take pride in it; honor it; cherish it. Pride for the task so well accomplished. Honor for the school and for those who guided and counselled you. Cherish it for the memory of the joy that you have secured for yourselves and for those whom you love. John Boylan beautiful ILtbrs For every ideal that we worship and for every thing or being that we hold dear, we set aside a day consecrated in eternal memory. This means that every hour of one whole day is dedicated in thought and action to the honor and reverence which we feel are due to these objects of our everlasting devotion. The lives that make the world so sweet Are shy and hide like the humble flower; We brush them by with careless feet Nor dream ’tis their fragrance fills the bower And cheers and comforts us hour by hour. forty-oneJ2otre Bame Be Hotir cs L faisait mauvais le onze fevrier, 1858, dans le petit village de Lourdes qui est situe dans le sud de la France dans les Pyrenees. II pleuvait a verse, mais, malgre la pluie, trois enfants marchaient le long d’une route tout pres du village. Une de ces enfants s’appelait Bernadette Soubirous. Ils arriverent a un lieu oil il fut tres difficile de pro-ceder a cause des mares d’eau qui se trouverent partout. Pendant que Bernadette aidait ses amis a traverser la route, elle vit, soudainement, une belle dame habillee en bleu, en quelque sorte de grotte pres du bord de la route. Les enfants s’apporcherent timidement d’elle, et ils virent qu’elle semblait manier un rosaire. Puis ils se mirent a genoux, et quand la dame vint au Gloria Patri, elle le recita a haute voix, et les enfants la joignirent en le disant. La petite Bernadette s’etonna a ce qu’elle avait vu, et elle raconta ce qui etait arrive a ses parents quand elle revint a la pauvre hutte oil demeurait sa famille. Son pere et sa mere lui dirent qu’elle revait, et ils la previnrent contre revenir encore chez elle avec une telle histoire. Puis Bernadette raconta l’histoire au cure du village, qui, comme elle dit, lui fit peur quelque fois, mais le vieux pretre refusa da la croire. La belle dame parut plusieurs fois a Bernadette, et chaque fois la petite Bernadette le raconta ou a ses parents ou au cure. Enfin le cure, l’Abbe Peyaramale, lui dit de demander a la dame comment elle s’appelait, la fois prochaine qu’elle lui paraitrait. En consequence, quand la belle dame parut encore, le vingt-cinq mars, Bernadette la pria de lui dire son nom, et, avec un sourire, la dame lui repondit dans le patois de la region. “Que soy era Immaculada Counception”, ou, “Je suis la Conception Immaculee.” Bernadette ne sut pas ce que voulurent dire ces mots, mais le cure sut leur signification, et il raconta a l’eveque tout ce qui etait arrive. La dame continua a faire ses apparitions jusqu’ au milieu de juillet, et apr s cela beaucoup de gens y vinrent, et aussi le Vierge causa qu’une fontaine y apparut, qui guerit encore toutes sortes de maladies. Plus tard on y eleva une eglise a l’honneur de la Conception Immaculee. En 1866 Bernadette entra dans un convent a Nevers, ou elle mourut le seize avril, 1879, apres une vie qui fut tres sainte et heureuse. forty-threeComme a l’ordinaire, il y a ceux qui reclament que les evene-ments surnaturels sont impossibles et ridicules. En cette question, il est vrai que les apparitions de la Vierge a Bernadette sont des faits. Bernadette vint d’une famille qui fut pauvre et qui travailla dur: ce fut une enfant ordinaire sur tous les rapports. Elle fut assez timide et reservee, et ne parla presque jamais d’elle-meme. Elle ne fut pas ambitieuse pour la gloire. Aussi, ce ne fut pas une victime des hallucinations. Des examens medicaux repetes pendant les ans 1858-1879 prouvent ceci. Elle ne fut ni hysterique ni un peu folle, et elle ne montra jamais des evidences d’une ame malade. Toute sa vie fut celle d’une simple paysanne, et ce fut un exemple frappant de la saintete dans le couvent dans lequel elle entra. La seule conclusion a laquelle on peut, par consequent, arriver c’est que la Vierge parut reelement a Bernadette, et que les cures et les autres bienfaits obtenus a son autel ne sont pas causes par la nature et certainement pas par le diable, et qu’ils peuvent etre causes seulement par l’intercession de la Conception Immaculee.

Leonard Hall forty-four In a shabby, shingled parish church at Royal Oak, Michigan, there dwells a priest with a far reaching voice, a lover of truth and honest battle. The Reverend Charles E. Coughlin is his name. Tall, broad-shouldered, bespectacled, with a look of determination he stands each Sunday afternoon before twin microphones and hurls his hate for all that is false and hypocritical across the hemisphere. Many have tried to talk him down, and there are those who have plotted to bar him from the air, but he speaks on making the Golden Hour of the Little Flower a time for thought and prayer in millions of homes. Last year, when Father Coughlin spoke over the Columbia Broadcasting System, one of his addresses was protested by certain officials, who felt and feared the impact of his candid anger. When he approached the microphone that afternoon, he ripped his notes to shreds and tossed them aside. He told his listeners that the address he had prepared could not be given, explained why, and then spoke extemporaneously for sixty pulsing minutes. Within the hour, telegrams began to arrive. By nightfall, the floor of his study was covered with them. The next day, trucks were hauling mail to his shrine. Ninety young ladies had to be employed to open it. In New York, the Columbia Broadcasting System offices were smothered with a similar inrush of mail. In fourteen days—it is the greatest response radio has ever known—Father Coughlin received 900,000 letters, demanding that he deliver the suppressed address. The next Sunday, he gave it. The officials, who had hushed it off the air before, remained in the background and kept very quiet. This priest abhors prohibition with the same intensity with which he abhors drunkenness. In his belief, temperance is the true rule of life. He has termed some United States bankers and the bankers of France “modern Shylocks”. He has accused our government of building up communism, of bankrupting farmers, of favoring the capitalist against the masses. Always, he fights the battle of the working man. ( olbeit ftour of tl)e Htttle Jflotoer forty-five Many people wonder where this energetic priest obtains his information. His number of correspondents runs into the hundreds. They are in every important city in America and in all European capitals. Most of these are newspaper men. When he wants data, he gets it. They give him the inside story which most of their newspapers don’t dare to print. The incredible part of his story is that all his time on the air is purchased through the donations of his listeners. For a while, he was receiving 15,000 letters a week and most of them contained offerings. Such is the loyalty of his followers, such is the force of his opinions that hundreds of thousands who agree with him want others to hear. No religious line is drawn. Black men and white, Jew and Gentile, men and women join in supporting this fearless champion of truth and right. Paul Walz Hlpostropfie to Niagara Monarch of floods! How shall I approach thee?—how speak of thy glory?—how extol thy beauty and grandeur? Ages have seen thy awful majesty, earth has paid tribute to thy greatness; the best and wisest among men have bent the knee at thy footstool; but none have described—none can describe thee! Alone thou standest among the wonders of Nature, unshaken by the shock of contending elements, flinging back the flash of lightning, and outroaring the thunder of the tempest! Allied to the everlasting hills,—claiming kindred with the eternal flood, thou art pillared upon the one, the other supplies thy surge. Primeval rocks environ, clouds cover, and the rainbow crowns thee. A Divine sublimity rests on thy fearful brow, an awful beauty is revealed in thy terrific countenance, the earth is shaken by thy tremendous voice. Born in the dark past and alive to the distant future, what to thee are the paltry concerns of man’s ambition?—the rise and fall of empires and states, the contests of kings or the crash of thrones? Thou art unmoved by the fate of nations and the revolutions of the earth are to thee but the pulses of time. Kings before thee are but men. and man, a type of insignificance. Cyril H. Barker forty-six OlJi jFrienbs It s the friends who are behind you You depend on all the time; Not the friends you’ll meet tomorrow, Or the friends of blare and style. When you have to face the struggle, They’ll be there to help you up. It’s the old friends who will cheer you To a goal or a silver cup. You need not look to see them. You just know that they are there; They follow in tense silence They’re with you and they care. You can focus your attention On the task you have to do, For you know, should danger threaten. That your friends will pull for you. Press onward then unaided. For you struggle not alone; There are still true friends who follow And they’ll make their presence known. Though hostile ranks crowd round you And your faith is sorely tried, Friends are pressing on behind you, They’ll fight nobly at your side. Zakia Ctje £nt Sob In twenty-nine, to Aquinas we came. Bent on learning, and scholastic fame; Many their goals have ably achieved, While an excellent training all have received. It is thirty-three, and we must part, Some of us our life’s career to start; But before we start each on his way, Let us resolve to ever display. Those Christian traits which we were taught, And all other theories put to naught. Edward Mooney forty-sevenJfatfter iflorgatt’s i atuo GTalfcs Ipplieb to €berptmp Hife ATHER MORGAN, in his series of talks on the Catholic Hour, “The Case Against Atheism”, showed that the proofs for the existence of God were so obvious that only those suffering from perversion of heart or prejudiced by passion deny it. Let us imagine ourselves walking along a dusty, windy road in the country. Life, shall we say, is a large crystal ball which has been broken into a million pieces and scattered along the way. As we amble along we find bits which reflect beauty, wealth, love, sorrow, misfortune and various other conditions of life, but there are so many w'e can never find them all. So let us examine a few more closely. Look! How brightly this piece shines! What a picturesque scene! It reflects a lone man who sits in front of his hut w’atching a small brook babble merrily along in front of him. Once he owned acres of property, but a demon called “Mortgage” relieved him of it. Perhaps he should quibble and complain; but on the contrary, he is filled with a quiet peacefulness. Though he has lost much, his loss can never overbalance w'hat he has found. For in the bloom of the mayflowrer, in the blush of the wild rose, in the fresh fields, in the woods and on the hillside he has seen God in all His Majesty pass before him. “There must be,” he reasons, “a Supreme Cause of such exquisite beauty and concord. Surely I have found God.” Do you see his lips moving? Listen! “My faith is all a doubtful thing. Wove on a doubtful loom, Until there comes each showrery Spring, A cherry tree in bloom. And Christ, Who died upon a tree That death had striken bare. Comes beautifully back to me In blossoms everywhere.” Truly it is fortunate that this man lost his estate; for he has discovered something which will benefit him far more than any material gain—God. Though seemingly poor, he is by far richer than the most successful king. But the picture is slowly fading, so we must travel on to another bit. How dull this piece is! I almost passed over it. Why look! It is altogether different from the last one. Here is a young man hardly out of his teens, sitting in a dark cell. He holds his head in forty-eighthis hands and murmurs, “If I had only listened to my conscience.” What a tragedy! The poor chap is doomed because he took the life of another. “Dear God”, he cries, “I have found You by tampering with Your law. Grant that other youths will not do the same. Grant that they may remember their Creator while in the spring of life, and that before age’s night comes they will have learned, not by experience, that Thy laws cannot be broken successfully.” Let us pass on quietly so we shall not disturb him. There is a rather peculiarily shaped fragment along the side of the road. Shall we look at it? It reflects two fishermen. One has stopped for the time and is resting on the bank smoking his pipe. The other is in the center of the stream carefully whipping a pool near a log. Finally he stops to change his fly and then his partner speaks: “Bill, I’ve been thinking— “Better quit! “Remember that stone that fell into the pool a while ago? It’s a funny thing how it moved from up there, isn’t it? You know as well as I do that something can’t be moved unless something else moves it. Some cause had to move that stone and that cause had to get its motion from another cause. Common sense tells you there must be a First Cause some place. Bill, that ought to be proof enough for anyone that God exists, since the cause cannot be natural it must be Supernatural.” Where is there a better place to meditate than in the quiet woods on the bank of a stream? It stimulates and quickens the mind so that we can ponder over and solve problems that in ordinary circumstances would cause a most severe headache. Certainly this man is a typifying example. But already it is growing dusk. We must hurry if we would arrive home before darkness. It has been highly interesting discovering God in everyday life, hasn’t it? ‘He is a path, if any be misled; He is a robe, if any naked be; If any chance to hunger, He is bread; If any be a bondman. He is free; If any be but weak, how strong is He; To dead men life He is, to sick men health; To blind men sight, and to the needy wealth; A pleasure without loss, a treasure without stealth.” Richard Driscoll forty-nine Aquinas j cfjolarsijip lUtoarbs Through the kind courtesy of the administration of some of our Catholic colleges and of the Rochester Business Institute, Aquinas Institute awards the following scholarships: A scholarship annually to Saint Bonaventure College entitling the holder to tuition for four years of college work. Scholarship first awarded in 1925. A scholarship annually to Villanova College entitling the holder to tuition for four years of College work. Scholarship first awarded in 1925. A scholarship every four years to Niagara University entitling the holder to board and tuition for four years of college work. Scholarship first awarded in 1926. A scholarship annually to the Rochester Business Institute entitling the holder to tuition for two years of Business college work. Scholarship first awarded in 1929. A scholarship annually to the International Correspondence School, its value and extent of time depending upon the course selected by the candidate. Scholarship first awarded in 1932. A scholarship annually to Saint Michael’s College of the University of Toronto entitling the holder to tuition for four years of college work. Scholarship first awarded in 1933. These scholarships are primarily awarded on the basis of Catholic character, scholastic merit and financial need and the Administration of Aquinas Institute rightly expects of the holders of these scholarships a living up to those high ideals of Catholic manhood and scholastic attainment the promise of which prompted the award. ftlotber Many things from Him I took, A star, the sun, the moon, a brook, I took these gifts and then another The loveliest gem of all, my Mother.

Dodato di eccelse virtu, l’illustre porporato porta nel sacro collegio il contributo 1 di ricche esperienze acquistate nella strenuosita della vita diplomatica e ben potrebbe come San Paolo dire: “Bonum certamen certavi”. Nelle turbolenti lotte sociali, quando l’individuo di fronte alia realizzazione della vita esacerbata da mille delusioni, s’ imbatte in un uomo di felice serenita, e come trovarsi in fresca oasi dopo lo smarrimento in un soffocante deserto e piace dimenticarsi allora di tutte quelle ansie che hanno assillato lo spirito, e guardare ai valori della vita da una prospettiva piu larga. Cosi ogni cosa piglia la sua guista proporzione, e l’individuo guarda sorpreso lo smarrimento rivelatore di ogni evento del grande diventar piccolo, piccolo il grande, e riflette con inutile rammarico alle lagrime inutilmente versate, a piaceri iniquamente goduti. Questi sono i pensieri che assaliscono la mente di fronte a queste figure luminose di ogni tempo. Senza scusa e senza rim-pianti questi filosofi di ogni eta accettano di buon grato il porto asseguato, se adequate non ce si pensa neppure; se alto o infimo chi puo guidicare se meritato?—“Nemo judex in causa propria.” Ma la grande madre, la religione Cattolica sa trovare tutti i suoi figli, dal mistico silenzio della vita contemplativa, come da lotte furibonde della vita e se li stringe al seno con orgoglio e li onora; e Fumasoni Biondi e stato uno di questi pochi eletti.—“Multi sunt vocati, pauci sed vero electi.” John Nacca fifty-onefifty-two3n JWemortam Mr. Connolly had chosen for his life’s career back stage direction in one of Rochester’s theaters and a glance over his years of able service convinces us that his dislike of ostentation and applause determined his choice. So was it with Mr. Connolly’s service to Aquinas and his indeed was loyal and untiring service. He came, gave to us of his wide experience and undeniable art and was gone before it was hardly known that he had come. To him primarily we owe our stage equipment and rigging which time and again have been pronounced of the finest in Rochester. To him we are indebted for the wise and kindly direction of Mr. Michael Mungovan to whom it would seem he transferred the care of our auditorium equipment when he sensed the gravity of his physical condition for to Mr. Mungovan he had given of his art and experience with the generosity of a father to a son.

Rockwell AQUINAS MISSION UNIT Or Banner ddjool N EVERY organization, in every story, in every created thing, there are forces that are constantly working, and that are often even essentially important yet they pass unnoticed. They act, we may say, as the soul does in the living creature. Sometimes they call for attention in a very special manner and then they are looked upon in a matter-of-fact regard. That is the way the Aquinas Mission Unit has acted. It has been with us so long and we have become so accustomed to it that it is like Room 202, or the Cafeteria. It doesn’t seem extra, like the clubs, or the teams, but it is a very part of the existence of Aquinas. For four years we have groaned every time we have been patted on the shoulder and asked for a dime and for four years we have parted with our dimes and have felt better for doing it. We have looked forward to Mission Days and their fun and their dances, and we have enjoyed ourselves without ever stopping to think why we should. Perhaps it is even better that we take this casual attitude. For then we become like a man to whom being good is a part of life. He may become so used to helping others, that he thinks nothing of giving a hand-out to a beggar. But he deserves more praise for making light of it than if he did it and never got over patting himself on the back for so doing. fifty-six Though we have given willingly, we have also given well. Survey the records of the past few years and see how many have done better than we. Since it is nearest at hand, look at last year’s report of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith. In the year 1931-1932 the Aquinas Institute presented $1655 and this sum looks even bigger when we compare it with the other donations. We were the “Banner School” of the diocese; we gave more than any one parish in the diocese; and we were exceeded only by St. Bernard’s Seminary. Of the money which we gave, $25 was given to both the Porto Rican and the Phillippine Missions, $50 to Father Killian, $300 each to Father Cleary, Father Hilbert, the Catholic Extension Society and the Propagation of the Faith and $350 for the support of a nun in Bishop Walsh’s schools. In past years, it has been by means of the Home Room Memberships and the Mission Day activities that this money has been collected. All the old methods are being used this year and, in spite of the general lack of money, we are doing well enough to please Father O’Donnell. At the same time, a new kind of work has been introduced. Many boxes of Catholic papers, stamps and medical supplies have been sent to the Mission Societies and it is hoped that in the future this will become one of the most important branches of the Mission work at Aquinas. Certainly, the Unit is a source of pride to the school, if we can speak of charitable works as something in which to take pride. How it must impress the people of the diocese each year when the Propagation Society publishes its report, to see how much we young men are doing! How much more it would impress them if they could realize the good being done by the prayers which are being daily offered for the success of the mission work! No number of scholarships received, or of games won can raise the estimation of Aquinas half so high as will the realization by Catholic Rochester that here we are being consistently trained in the virtue of Charity. Donald Dailey Catfjoltc Cfjaritp During this time of economic stress, true charity has been aptly demonstrated and justly emphasized. In the past few years, the people of the Catholic world have displayed a spirit of brotherly love to an extent heretofore unknown. Throughout the world Catholic Charities have been organized both locally and nationally. In the diocese of Buffalo all the charities under Catholic guidance have joined in one grand Charity Drive. The amount of money to be raised has, for the past few years, been far beyond any yearly quota ever before desired in that section. However, despite the handicap of domestic economy, so prevalent in these times, these huge sums have been collected with practically no difficulty. Another striking instance may be seen in the action of New York laymen in the organization of a board of Lay Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New' York w'hose purpose is to aid His Eminence, Cardinal Hayes in his relief work. Such prominent leaders as Alfred E. Smith, former governor of New York State and chairman of the board, and John B. Kennedy, a powerful magazine commentator, have joined the movement and have enlisted the aid of the Catholic lay army of the metropolis. Combined with the spirit of cooperation wre find the powerful spirit of true charity. Charity, Saint Paul says “is not puffed up, is not ambitious, seeketh not her own.” This is our conception of real, deep charity and it goes far beyond the superficial donation of coin. In all of our charitable movements wre find a surprising lack of selfish motives. We see a desire to share one’s goods with another and in the act of one poor man’s sharing his crust with another we must recognize charitable motives perhaps not to be found in the donation of huge amounts of wealth. In these days we see a great patience in the dealings of relief. We see a surprising endurance in adversity and a deep seated hope in God, country and fellow'men. These are the things which really count. These are the things recognized by Saint Paul who was certainly in a position to know and whom we have recognized, always, as the great Apostle of Charity. Such is the example the Catholic world is setting today. This is the example to be followed in the future in dealings between fellow'men. We can only hope that wTe will learn, as our parents have learned, that “the greatest of these is charity” and that we may remember the words of Christ, “Whatsoever you have done unto the least of My brethren you have done unto Me.” Joseph Lynchfttcfjarb Wagner Richard Wagner wurde 1813 in Leipzig geboren, verlebte seine ersten Jugendjahre in Dresden, studierte auf der Universitat seiner Geburtstadt, und jetzt erst erhielt er hier seinen ersten systematischen Unterricht in der Musik. Nachdem er an ver-schiedenen Orten, zuletzt in Dresden, als Musikdirektor gelebt hatte, beteiligte er sich 1848 und 1849 an den revolutionaren Unruhen in Dresden. Nach deren Unterdriickung musste er fliehen. Erst nach zehn Jahren wurde er begnadigt, und nun kehrte er von seinen Zufluchtsorte Zurich nach Deutschland zuriick. Dieser Genie war am 13. Februar 1883 gestorben. Das Halbjahrhundert hat, seitdem den Tod des Richard Wagners, einen prachtigen, triumphierenden Fortschritt seiner Arbei-ten von Opernhaus nach Opernhaus durch die Welt gesehen. Mit der Zeit des kommen Sommers des denkmalen Jahres wird die Stadt Bayreuth, die seinen irdische Hiille beschiitzen und hat seine unsterblichen Werke fur die Welt bewahrt, noch einmal von feme sichtbar gross als ein Ort der Pilgerfahrt fur die weltumarmen Staat der Schwarmerische des Wagners. Die beriihmten Opernhiiuser werden mit Bayreuth wetteifern, um die besten Leistungen aller Werke dieses Meisters zu geben. Berlin die Haupstadt des Deutschlands mit zwei Opernhauser; Leipzig—das Geburtsort; Dresden, wo Richard Wagner dasOrches-ter sieben Jahre gefiihrt hatte, und Mtinchen beriihmt wegen des mundlichen, festilichen Leistungen stehen nachst nach Beyreuth. Wagners Texte hingegen, von ihm selbst gedichtet, haben grossen poetischen Wert. In seinen Opern ist der Text so sehr der Mittelpunkt des Interesses, dass man sie deshalb “Musikdra-men” nennt. Diejenigen seiner Dichtungen, welche auf deutsch— nationalen Sagen beruhen, sind in allitterierenden Versen geschrieben. Die bedeutendsten Opern Wagners sind: “Loehngrin”, “Tristan und Isolde’’, “Der Fliegende Hollander”, “Tannhauser”, “die Meis-tersinger von Niirnberg”, “Das Rheingold”, “Der Ring des Nibelungen” und “Parsifal”. Die Leute, die die Opern des Wagners in ihrere reinsten Ge-stalten hiiren mogen, sollen dieses Jahr, das die Deutschen wie Richard Wagner Jahr preisen, seine Heimat besuchen. Joseph D.

This year another fad has captivated the hearts of many nature-loving people. This fad concerns itself with rock gardens; and in most cases, indifferent young men have been selected to do the bidding of their parents. To the young man, this is just another worthless fad and will result in a growth of underbrush as did miniature golf courses or it will quickly lose all of its fascination as did the yo-yo. But orders are orders and you shall have a rock garden, if only after I nearly break my neck in making it. First of all. I must have many, many rocks and a great amount of soil just as I had to have the proper qualifications when I entered high school. Oh! but I have great hopes when once I start that bottom tier, yes, even when it is finished. I recall that I had great hopes when I started my freshman year, too. The second tier is more difficult and things do not work so well. The rocks keep falling down just as I kept stumbling over exams. I begin to wonder whoever thought of rock gardens. But since I have started, I might just as well finish. It can’t look much worse. This recalls to me how I doubted the value of education and how hard it was to continue. The third tier is not any more difficult than the second. It gives me some idea how the finished garden will look. This is true in high school. For in the third year I began to see my goal. YY'hy. now my work is nearly finished! I need only a few rocks to top off the garden, to give it that finished look, just as I now need a few subjects to complete my high-school course. At last my work is done and it is time to sow the seed. But surely the garden will not be beautiful until the flowers bloom: nor will my ambitions be realized and my life a success until my efforts in high-school merit success.

Leonard Hall America tfjt ijontf of Jfabs Every so often the peace and tranquillity of American life is interrupted by the introduction of some fad. The odd part of it is that the people seem to respond as heartily as ever to each new craze. A few years ago brought about the appearance of Tom Thumb Golf, a new form of recreation for the tired and perplexed business man, calculated to aid in the social uplift of the American people. It was well accepted at once and, like every good paying business, it expanded until one needed only to walk down the street about 100 yards when he would be invited by at least four barkers to come in and test his skill at guiding a ball through wooden gates, drain pipes, and other odds and ends, into various little holes. The popularity of the game soon waned and we found many a disconsolate owner standing in front of his establishment over which hung a sign advertising, “36 holes—10 cents”. The next step was the closing of every second one, and the dismantling of its apparatus to be sold as junk; and so went miniature golf. Then came the advent of the “yo-yo” when one could except to be invited to a friend’s house to a “yo-yo” party. On the walls of the master’s den might be found “yo-yos” of various sizes and colors to which were attached bits of sentiment or which perhaps referred to memories of a prize, taken for adeptness at “yo-yoism.” To-day we have the irresistible jig-saw puzzle and its attendant complications among which is an increase in the number of cases for the psychopathic ward . . .

If an observer should look into any classroom a minute before the bell rings, he would see on nearly every face an air of expectant waiting. A nervous agitation seems to possess every boy; he is anticipating something. The boys crane their necks to look at the clock; a slight click is heard which heralds the passage of the crucial minute; legs go out into the aisle and the silence is shattered by the jangling of the bell. The doors burst open and emit streams of hurrying students; they seem to be bent upon two main objectives—Oh no! you guessed wrong that time—they are headed for the drinking fountains. Ralph C.

This movement was started in 1833 at Oxford, England, by the Tractarians whose aim was to restore Catholicity to the Church of England. It has been called the greatest religious movement of modern times for it strengthened the ranks of the Roman Catholic Church by hundreds of conversions. Many of these converts were distinguished men and women, the most renowned being John Henry Newman who was later consecrated a Cardinal and became one of the most staunch apologists of the Catholic faith. In view also of this centenary celebration, a remarkable mani-lesto has been signed by fifty Anglo-Catholic clergymen whose “real and essential goal is reunion with the Apostolic See of Rome.” This manifesto has been circulated among the Anglican Bishops and Clergy of England and as to the result of this appeal only time and our present Pope. Pius XI, can tell. Leonard Hall 3 Century of JDrogrtss The colorful exposition which is to be opened officially to the public in June at Chicago, Illinois bids fair to challenge the world at large to produce anything more spectacular or of greater grandeur. After the Philadelphia Sesqui-Centennial it was prophesied by many that another great exposition would not be attempted for fifty years to come. However the nearly completed grounds and buildings at Chicago disclaim this assertion. The fair grounds themselves are on Chicago’s lake front and consist of several hundred acres of land which has been reclaimed from the lake front by an extensive and prolonged process of dumping earth along the shore. Expense means nothing to the promoters of this exposition and consequently on this made-to-order park, full grown trees are being planted at a cost of from $150 to $300 apiece. It is expected that approximately 350,000 persons will visit the grounds daily and Chicago hotels and apartments are making ready to handle these pilgrim armies. To go into a detailed description of some of the exhibits would entail volumes; suffice to say that this exhibition has no precedent and its equal will not probably be produced for some time to come. Ralph C. MartonClje ®Uorlb’s ZDebt to tbe Catfjolic Cljurcfj OR OVER nineteen centuries the Church established by Christ has stood for all that is good, honest and holy. The very fact that it has withstood the assaults of heretics and non-Catholics during this period singles it out above all other institutions and proves conclusively that it is the unique society in the history of humanity. Christ came to give life and to give it more abundantly—not the life of the body but the life of the spirit. The history of the Church is the story of the spiritual life among men. Everything which makes this world a much happier place in which to live and all those things which touch the souls of men most deeply have been fostered, protected and inspired by the Church. She has brought both physical and spiritual beauty into the world. Architecture, painting, sculpture, music, science and all the crafts are deeply indebted to her. She has fostered and protected them for so long that they, either consciously or unconsciously, look to her for inspiration. Her beautiful churches are recognized as the most perfect structures that have ever been raised by the hand of man. The principles of her early paintings have been used for almost two thousand years. The hymns used at her services are composed of the most beautiful music written while the Bible, which is the source of her teaching, has influenced more authors than all other books combined. In a spiritual sense her benefits have covered a larger field and have been more helpful to the human race as a whole because they have affected everyone including the rich and the poor, the non-Catholic as well as the Catholic. She has helped the helpless and taught men how to help themselves. Her contributions in philosophy, education, ethics and in furnishing a guide and director for the conscience of men have never been paralleled by an other institution. The teachings of Saint Thomas Aquinas are known and taught all over the world especially in Catholic institutions. Her charitable organizations especially hospitals and homes for the unfortunate have rendered aid to the poor and afflicted in every land. In the same way by her institutions of learning she has taught men how to help themselves. She has not only contributed more than her share but she has actually led the way and performed her work as a leader of men by means of the teachings of her Divine Founder and preserved what she had accomplished when all other institutions had fallen under the sabre of the barbarians. Robert Aulenbacher Cfje $otoer of personal influence One of the responsibilities that a man cannot evade in this life is the one he thinks of least, his personal influence. Man’s conscious influence, when he is on dress parade or when he is posing for the impression of those around him, is woefully small. But the unconscious influence, the silent, subtle radiation of his personality, the effect of his words and acts, the trifles he never considers are tremendous. Each one of us has an atmosphere which is affecting those about us. So silent and unconscious is this influence, that man may forget that it exists. It may easily be compared with the forces of nature,—heat, light, and electricity. Both are silent as well as invisible. We never see them; but we do realize the fact that the majesty and glory of the unseen nature is far superior to that of the visible nature. There are men and women in the world whose presence seems to radiate sunshine, cheer and optimism, which restores and calms one in a moment. There are also, those who revive all one’s distrust in life. Without knowing why, one loses his bearings on life and its problems in their presence. There are men who float down the stream of life “like icebergs,” as a Victorian writer once termed it. They seem to be cold, reserved, and unapproachable on any subject whatever. But there are other natures, warm, helpful and genial which seem to bring warmth, joy and sunshine into our lives. There are men who are insincere in heart, and that insincerity can be recognized by their presence. They have a great interest in your welfare, when they need you. Such persons never play their part honestly. The mask will slip down sometimes; their cleverness cannot teach their eyes the look of honesty. Man cannot escape for one moment from this radiation of his character, which resembles the impression of his countenance in a mirror. He cannot evade this responsibility by saying that it is an unconscious influence. He can however, select the qualities which he admires. He can cultivate such qualities as sweetness, calmness, trust, generosity, truth, justice and loyalty by means of which he will affect the world. After all, it is not what those around us do for us, that counts, but rather it is what they are to us. To make our influence felt we must live up to our faith, we must practice what we believe. A magnet does not attract iron, as iron. It must first convert iron into another magnet. Besides being an influence, we should be an inspiration because the changes in our varying moods are all recorded in the delicate barometers of the lives of those around us. Walter J. Alling eighty-four life When we are young and in our prime To us life seems a long, long time. We think the days so drear and bound Yet, all too soon the years pass around. So we grow older; much time has passecT We begin to count each day our last. We now admit that time does fly And we can do naught as it speeds by. A few live on till they’re old and gray. They have learned to suffer and to pray. They daily grow in love and grace As they yearn for their heavenly resting place. Now, life is a serious thing we see, This day for you, the next for me. And whether when young or when old we go. We are glad that our Father has willed it so. W. Elmer Snyder Ijtgl) 6 dniol And slowly falls the curtain On the famous drama, high school.

And a wonderful vista opened to those Who were disposed to see. It was a view of God on high. The God of Eternity. A peace and a quiet were prevalent there With angels honoring Him And singing sweetly their joyous praise— Cherub and Seraphim. So let us remember, wherever we go. That we always have a Friend. The Joy of our life,—The Hope of our death, Our final, ultimate End. He’s longing and waiting for us to come To the altar, His earthly throne, There to tell Him the things we need And graces we would own. 0! our sins may be great and our trials too, But He’s promised each one of us A place of warmth in His Sacred Heart.

Friends in parting sometimes give expression to a single thought in which they attempt to center all the aspirations and affections that have builded and molded their common interest. Ours has been your training in life—we offer all the beautiful symbolism of a flag and a crucifix. May we not feel that these have a deeper and a more added significance to you this year? The crucifix, for your year of graduation marks the nineteenth hundredth anniversary of the Redemption of Mankind; the flag because this year the whole world has begun to tui n its eyes to your nation for the solution of its many problems, problems which can find their ultimate answer only in the Passion of Jesus Christ, in the preservation of Christian ideals. Your contribution to your national and civic life may be but the silent offering of a good Christian life, or you may grow into a wide sphere of influence, we only ask that you treasure the beautiful lesson Aquinas taught you,—a flag and a crucifix hanging together.

The stones were crudely gathered Just to make for us a pool, Where men could swim with pleasure In our beloved school. Mortar too was added And girders very strong Could soon be seen about the place So that nothing could go wrong. Then came the day of reckoning And the engineers did will That all the laws of physics cease And that water run up hill. But no, the ‘aqua’ glistened And refused to leave the hole, Where pipes had brought it freely And left as in a bowl. Since then the boys were thinking That in its dazzling blue Some day they would be sure to see Young freshmen wading through. But now their hopes are over And they know this cannot be. The pool has been remodeled And is hung with drapery. It is here that men who cultivate The finest of all arts Can now indulge in music And thereby sate their hearts.

Donald J. Kridel Gerald R. Kunz itlusic at JHoutnas Music is no longer an extra-curricular activity at Aquinas. It has passed from that stage into the state of being a constituent part of our school. It is not the commercial but rather the cultural benefits which entice many of our students to devote a part of their time to its study. ‘‘Yea, music is the Prophet’s art; Among the gifts that God hath sent, One of the most magnificent.” —Longfellow. Many innovations in the music department have been made this year. First and most important of all, a new instructor was appointed, Mr. Raymond J. Hasenauer, a young man especially gifted in this art. His ability as an instructor and conductor was well manifest at our annual concert. A Little Symphony Orchestra, composed of the more advanced musicians of the department, was organized to study the higher and finer types of symphonic music. A more serious attempt than ever was made to have mass singing at our monthly conference hours. The students participated in the devotions by fervent rendition of hymns. For aiding in this purpose, the student body was provided with song cards. Another advancement made was the outfitting of a music room in that spot known affectionately throughout the school as the “Sahara”. The room was made almost acoustically perfect by the installation of sound absorbing material which lessened the reverberations. As it now stands, it ranks with the best high-school music rooms in the country. The musical organizations already established fulfilled the expectations afforded by the reputation they had established in previous years. In fact they have gone even further, not only in technique but also in the quality of music studied. Our aim is to study music with its cultural and artistic benefits foremost in mind. one hundredone hundred oneClje gut nag Dramatic Clutj The Dramatic Club which was organized in 1931 under the supervision of our Director of Dramatics, Mr. Edwin J. Dolan, has during the past year progressed rapidly and achieved many of its original objectives. Since the organization of the club the members have assumed the responsibility for all productions presented to the extent of backstage work such as stage managing, property men, setting scenery, pulling the curtain, tending to lights, acting as promoters etc., all of which in former years had been executed by members of the faculty. The club during the past year has been enthusiastically supported and already has gone far in unearthing rare talent in the field of dramatics. Meetings have been well attended because of the unusual entertainment afforded. Monologues and dialogues were enacted by guests invited through the efforts of our club members. The vigour with which the members carried out their projects as well as the cooperation they have given their officers is indeed most praiseworthy. We feel that through the splendid work accomplished by Mr. Dolan, aided by the officers of the club and the members themselves, dramatics have become an activity of importance in the educational progress of the school. It is our wish that the Dramatic Club may enjoy an even more glorious career in the ensuing years. The Administration for the year 1932-1933 is as follows: President.........................William Malley, ’34 Vice-President.....................Alfred Boylan, ’35 Secretary.........................Richard Miller, ’35 Treasurer..........................Donald Hassett, ’34 Faculty Advisor...............Mr. Edwin J. Dolan Raymond Martin(Dur j% cijool JDlap “£fje $oor i)ut” “The Poor Nut”, a three act comedy by J. C. and Elliott Nugent which was presented on Monday and Tuesday evenings, October seventeenth and eighteenth, once more evidenced the ability of our director, Mr. Dolan, to select a production with audience appeal. It was no doubt the most clever and most quickly moving comedy that has ever been produced at Aquinas. The cast, fifty in number, included all members of the Dramatic Club. It was the largest cast since the beginning of the school plays. The play too was a very difficult one to stage especially the relay race in the second act. This production differed from others presented in the past, not only in the type of drama but also in presenting many new players, especially members of the senior class. A1 Boylan, who made his debut in the school play last year repeated his success in the leading role. A1 Frank and Thomas Miller deserve praise for their able feminine impersonations. Bill Malley lived up to his reputation as an actor. Fred Weider, as a young wisecracking college student was also deserving of commendation. Clayton Faulkner and William Crowley were excellent as rival track team captains. Ray Martin as Colonel Small, James Brady as track team coach and Fred Blum as “Doc” Spurney did well in their roles. The other members of the cast also filled their parts well. We are confident that all who attended the performances passed an enjoyable evening and will agree with us in saying that Mr. Dolan, our director, the cast, and all connected with its production are to be congratulated on this excellent and well managed production. Raymond MartinUntoerClass J3laps N 1931, dramatics at Aquinas entered on a new and momentous career. Students had shown their interest in the popular activity and when Mr. Dolan took charge of it during that year, one of the first things he did was to institute a dramatic club. The students who enrolled in the new organization learned that Mr. Dolan had decided not only to let the seniors express themselves on the stage but also to train the under-classes through one play a year presented by each class. It was as a direct outgrowth of the dramatic club that under class plays were begun. The first of these plays, “Mistress Castleman’s Christmas Dinner” was reviewed in last year’s annual. It was presented by the Freshmen before Christmas, 1931. The second was even more of a novelty. It was a three-act comedy, “The Will of Aunt Luenza”, written by Fred Englert, an Aquinas student, and featuring nine sophomores, eight of whom played feminine roles. The plot hinged upon the mysterious disappearance and death of an elderly invalid and the contents of her will. It afforded every player ample opportunity for character work. It was a cleverly done performance and won many laughs from an audience which is always hard to please. Englert, who wrote the play, appeared as the town news-carrier. Eldridge Bauer, the wicked Cornelia, had a more difficult role but he handled it well. Bill Malley’s ‘Sunflower’, the darkey maid, gave Bill, who had been specializing in lovely ladies prior to the play, an entirely different type of part and how he played it! Donald Hassett, Sam Cavallaro and Sam Battle had clever roles. Tom Bryan, the Aunt Luenza, did commendable work. John Springer was cast in the role of a w'eeping wridow% the type of part played by ZaSu Pitts on the screen. Stephen Caulev was the sinister lawyer, the only masculine part in the play. Everyone was unusually capable and the play was a splendid means of starting off Mission Day. Next on the list was “Credo”, the Christmas play, which was presented by the Freshmen before Christmas, 1932. It was a one act drama written by Mr. Dolan and featured Fred Weider in the role of an athiest who learns to fear God. Weider’s portrayal of his part was very dramatic, a good contrast to the lighter roles he was given in “The Poor Nut” and “The Nut Farm”, but he was wholly capable. So also wTere Robert Langworthv, Gerald Flynn, Thomas Nolan and Anthony DeSimon, all enacting their first roles on the Aquinas stage. These under class plays are much more important than they seem. There are always several boys who never get into the school f SENIOR PLAY—THE NUT FARM play because of too great competition. Nevertheless they are eager for an opportunity to act. The under class plays give the boys of each class an opportunity for the glamorous work of the stage by restricting all work both onstage and backstage to the members of that particular class. In this way everyone who wishes to act may do so and as a result Aquinas is turning out, not only better thespians, but also better and less self-conscious public speakers. John Springer, ’34 £f)e Senior $lap « “£1be J£ut Jfarm” Raymond Martin This delightful comedy of Hollywood life was presented by the Senior Class in the school auditorium, on the evenings of February twentieth and twenty-first. The play consisting of three acts was written by John C. Brownell. Eight seniors and two underclassmen took part in the production. The story of “The Nut Farm” concerns Willie and Helen Barton both movie-struck individuals who believe, like many others, that they could win fortune and prominence for themselves if only given an opportunity. A slick promotor learns that Helen’s husband has $30,000 which he plans to invest in a nut farm and he proceeds to persuade him to put it in a film starring his wife. The incidents which occur as a result appear to be very humorous and keeps the audience in laughter a great part of the time and holds their attention during the entire presentation. We, the members of the Senior Class, are grateful to Mr. Dolan for the success which he insured to the performance and for the patience shown toward the Seniors, who had never before appeared on the Aquinas stage, throughout rehearsals and the presentation.

The meetings were held every second Friday during the school year. Mr. Hurley acted as a faculty advisor with Paul Byrne as president. The other officers of the club were the secretary, Fred Blum, and the treasurer, James McCarthy. John Nacca, George Koerner and Cormac Cappon constituted a very capable program committee. With these officers and an intelligently interested Vergil class, the work of the club was made very enjoyable, as well as educational. The topics assigned, covered nearly every field of material that is consistent with the study of Vergil. After the talks were over, Mr. Hurley usually gave a few words of constructive criticism on the speeches and on the work of the class in general. We now realize with a keen sense of regret that we are leaving the Vergil club and the school, but we hope that our successors will carry on our work to a greater degree of excellence and get a greater degree of enjoyment in so doing.

Michael Mangano NE OF THE outstanding accomplishments of the student body of Aquinas during the past year was the carrying on of the publication of a school paper of exceptional merit. Named the Maroon and White, it lived up to the tradition established for those colors at Aquinas. Every article in each issue maintained the high standard of writing evident through the whole paper. Since it was a school paper, most of its space was naturally devoted to news of the school. Club activities were reported. School and intramural sports were given a page in each issue. Columns of humor, mostly of interest to the students were included. However, outside activities were not neglected. The drama, literature, science, politics all found a place in the Maroon and White. It was a paper written by students and of interest to the students. A great quality in the Maroon and White was balance which is so often lacking in publications of its type. Although it covered a wide range of subjects, everything was in proportion. No section, such as humor, was stressed at the expense of the others. It was evident that every issue was carefully and intelligently planned by the Editor, George Koerner, and the Assistant-Editors, Donald Dailey and Edward Guider. They and the staff of the Maroon and White, thank the students for their support and we all thank Father Morgan who in serving as faculty advisor, has played a most important part in carrying on the publication of the school monthly which he was so conspicuously instrumental in inaugurating in the Fall of 1931. Paul Byrne one hundred thirteenCfje German Club In its second year of existence the German Club has taken a front position among Aquinas clubs. It has enjoyed a most successful season, a roster of twenty members in its first year having grown to more than forty this year. The presentation of original German skits, the singing of rollicking German songs, the reading of papers on Germany and its problems joined to a genuinely social atmosphere which pervaded every club meeting have enriched our study of the language and lent great interest to the work done in the classroom. To our Faculty Advisor and our officers, the members of the German Club extend their deep gratitude for and appreciation of their earnest efforts to promote the continued success of the Club and, incidentally, of the study of German at Aquinas. Leo C. Shatzel one hundred fourteen one hundred fifteen The purpose of the French club has been and is to develope and increase interest in French life, language, customs, traditions and history; to improve facility in speaking French; and to put to practical use in a French atmosphere the French learned in the classroom. The members, after intensive study on these subjects, have had discussions, essays and readings. In order to get away from the monotony of doing the same thing at every meeting, the club decided to have one or two guest speakers, and it was very fortunate in having Father Laughin, a teacher in our own school, and Mr. Bernard Tracy, an instructor at Charlotte High School. The “Origin and Development of French Drama" was the topic treated by Father Laughlin. Mr. Tracy very humorously told of his experiences in France during and after the war. Both talks were most interesting. Under the able direction of Mr. Doyle, we can truthfully say that our Club has passed through a very successful year and we depend upon our successors to further the interests of Le Cercle Foch. Francis B. Tracy He Cercle Jfocfj  Clje $tstorp Club Our history Club has tried to put a new meaning into the organization of school clubs this year. Keeping abreast with the spirit of the age, changes have been made to make this Club the leading one in school activities. We have broken away from the tradition of having a club for the few who are interested in history and we have endeavored to create a desire in the underclassmen to study the story of the past that the future may profit by the mistakes then made. This Club also blazed the trail in presenting a debate to which the entire student body was invited. This debate occurred just prior to the November elections and aroused the interest of students and Faculty members alike. The subject, a timely one, was: “Resolved That the Republican Party Should Continue in Office.” The members of the History Club are proud of the efforts which they have put forth this year and they feel that their endeavors have been rewarded by a large measure of success. They hope that those who in future years are destined to carry on the work of the Club will do all in their power to advance the interest and the achievement of their study of history. James R. Hall one hundred sixteenCl)c Italian Club Three years ago, at the request of many Italian citizens of Rochester, the Aquinas Institute added Italian to its curriculum. In the first year there were seventeen students enrolled in the class and now the department, offering three years of the language, has an enrollment of about fifty students, one fourth of whom are not of Italian extraction. In the three years of work, the student of Italian, besides studying the fundamental principles of the language, takes up a study of Italian literature, the art of conversing in Italian and a brief survey cf the history of Italy and of the manners and customs of the Italian people. Last year an Italian Club was formed by students of second year Italian. Its meetings were held sometimes during the regular class hour but more frequently after school hours. This year the Club numbers close to forty members and has extended its activities to embrace debates in the language, informal discussions of topics dealing with government and leaders in Italian ecclesiastical and political affairs and a program of Italian songs and instrumental music. The outstanding accomplishment of the Club was the presentation of a one act comedy in Italian which was generously praised by all present.

Rockwell one hundred eighteen  Cfje jfflatjjematics Club Up to the present year the mathematics classes which take second place to none in educational importance at Aquinas, have been without a representative club. Probably one of the reasons for this was the difficulty of organizing a mathematics club and of preparing programs of interest to its members. Despite these apparent obstacles, a Mathematics Club with Father O’Donnell as Faculty Advisor was organized last fall. This Club has for its purpose the giving to its members a broader knowledge of mathematics and its applications. For accomplishing this end, members have prepared papers dealing with the historical development of the various branches of mathematics while others have devoted their time to the solution of mathematical tricks and puzzles. Father O’Donnell purchased a number of slide rules and instructed the Club members in the use of this instrument. This proved both interesting and practical as we know how important a place the slide rule holds in college mathematics. For its first year our Club has done good work and wTe are confident that future years will have finer things in store for the members of the Mathematics Club. William Edell one hundred nineteenCfje Angelo rccfji ctmcr Club No longer is the Science Club to be considered just one of the clubs at Aquinas. It can now boast of about thirty members and embraces activities for both chemists and physicists. This year as in previous years, it has been ably supervised by Mr. Deviny. This society was formed in order that students might see the connection between practical and theoretical scientific work. One of its chief aims is to show the dependence of factories upon chemistry and physics and that only a very small portion of these sciences are taught from books and in laboratories. The effects of science are discernible in almost every phase of industrial life. Without it the steel manufacturer or the doctor would be of no use for they would have no means of ascertaining the worth of their products and materials. Thus the value of science can be easily seen after one belongs to this organization for even a short time. The club members, and those interested in their work, visited several factories during the past year. Among those visited were the F. E. Reed Glass Works, where all the intricacies of the glass melting and blowing industry were explained to them; the broadcasting station of WHAM at Victor and the Telephone Corporation’s Exchange. The Taylor Instrument Company and the City Laboratories were also visited. At the Telephone Exchange the inspectors were instructed in the process of putting through both local and long distance calls. The officials of the Taylor Instrument Company welcomed the members very cordially and explained the various processes employed in the manufacture of the articles produced by them. g l4ji one hundred twentyIn their search for knowledge the members visited the City Chemistry Laboratories. Although the laboratories were very fascinating they were of more interest to the students inclined toward chemistry than those who were physically bent. At several meetings, experiments were performed by Mr. Deviny and others whom he selected to aid him. The club has carried out its actions in such a manner as to eliminate all loss of time. By following this procedure it has been more beneficial and more enjoyable to those who take an interest in its activities. Officers of the Club Muerl Smith President . Vice-President Secretary . Treasurer John Kihn Donald Bettner James Alling Joseph Wobus one hundred twenty-oneCfje Hlqutnas JDljilateltc Club Everyone from the President of the United States to Mahatma Ghandi has a hobby,—or should have one. Mahatma’s seems to be hunger strikes, and that of President Roosevelt is stamp-collecting, which is also the hobby of 5,000,000 other American citizens. And stamp collecting is just as worthy a hobby as collecting antiques, or butterflies, or Rembrandts. It gives as much amusement and develops just as desirable qualities as any other hobby, and stamps, even the late Mr. Hind’s $50,000 British New Guiana speci-man, are not as costly as some Rembrandts. The urge to collect is one which is said to come to us from prehistoric times, when man in his few leisure hours satisfied his innate esthetic sense by amassing colorful stones, shells, etc. The collector once having taken up philately as a hobby sets out to make a general collection of all the stamps of the world. He takes interest in the new issues, and it is a source of singular satisfaction to him when he has assembled a set of stamps complete in all its values. But when he has collected for a while he may realize the one hundred twenty-two futility of trying to secure all of the 100,000 varieties of stamps which have been issued, and therefore may decide to specialize in one country, very often his own. Then he pays more attention to the perfection of the condition of the stamps and the way in which they are mounted in his album, and when he finally locates a perfect speciman of a more or less rare issue the gratification which rewards his persistent search is such as is seldom experienced by the non-collector. In examining stamps for flaws or errors there is developed in the collector a power of keen observation. In studying their designs and learning the names of hundreds of colors and shades he becomes acquainted with art. In collecting commemoratives he becomes familiar with wwld history, while the philatelist wrho does not have an unusual knowledge of geography is not really a philatelist at all. Likewise he becomes well informed in current events by knowing why and under w hat circumstances newr stamps are issued. The Philatelic Club, one of the few Aquinas clubs which is in no way connected w'ith studies, has enjoyed its second successful year. Its membership is not large but highly enthusiastic and cooperative. Two guests as well as last year’s president, Richard Quinn, were secured to speak before the club on matters pertaining to philately. Two exhibits wrere held, the second, which portrayed the history of the world in postage stamps, being especially worth while. The club looks forward to another year richer in success and accomplishments than any preceding, and this hope should certainly be realized.

All have played an integral part in the work of the individual student. Each club has given an opportunity for the furthering of the student’s powers in the field of literature, journalism or science. This year in accordance with the demand a new club was formed known as the ‘Debating Club’ under the direction of Mr. Edward Dolan. This club furnished the opportunity to many students of developing their abilities as orators and debaters. At the first debate the question “That Aquinas Institute should substitute intra-mural sports for inter-high school sports” was debated. The affirmative side was upheld by Francis Hehnlein and George Koerner, while the negative side was upheld by Donald Dailey and Walter Knapp. The negative side won by a vote 16-9. Since that time about twelve other debates have been held. one hundred twenty-fourOne of the most spirited discussions was in debating the “Buy American program as promulgated by W. R. Hurst should be endorsed”. The affirmative was upheld by Charles Cunningham and Clarence Gardner. The negative side was upheld by Carroll Casey and Victor Isaac. The debate was won by the affirmative side. This debate was covered by reporters from the Rochester Journal and much prominence was given to this debate in that paper.

The team had lost the majority of its games. Failure had been the reward of boys who were putting their best efforts into this sport. To disagree entirely with these downcast boys would be avoiding the issue. Aquinas did meet with hard luck in most of its games. However, do not hold the idea that football missed its purpose, that of increasing the morale of the student body. Whether you be one of the players or a spectator at the game, you cannot fail to perceive that football elevates the mind. There is not one in the entire audience who does not thrill to a touchdown by the school team. Everyone forgets his troubles to follow the ball carrier with sparkling eyes. But this is not the only benefit derived from football. It is highly beneficial in the development of the body. It enables one to carry on the difficult tasks of life. A strong mind in a weak body is not the combination for success. The body must be built to carry on the dictates of the mind. Football meets this order. It is the last word in the building of an athlete. It makes the “iron man”. Lastly, football gives the average player a deeper sense of responsibility and fair play. What more could one ask of any sport? Delbert Marsielje one hundred twenty-eight Ilnter j djolastic basketball It was just half a dozen years ago that a team from Aquinas came home to the cheers of thousands of ardent supporters, after losing in the finals of the National Catholic High School Tournament at Chicago. And this year there was not even a basketball team at Aquinas? It seemed that the spirit of those bygone days days had completely died out as far as athletics was concerned. It can be said with truth that the students themselves were responsible for the absence of a representative basketball team. The question as to whether or not this sport should be continued in the school was placed directly in the hands of the students for the past three years and they showed by a poor attendance at the games that their answer was a great big NO. From the time that the present Senior class entered the school in 1929, interest in basketball has steadily declined. Repeated hints from the platform of our assembly hall did not even begin to show signs of arousing the fellows from their state of apathy and indifference. The lack of interest could in no way be attributed to an absence of a good team. For the past two seasons, Aquinas was fortunate enough in being represented by a great team, with such players as Connelly, Marks, O’Neil and others winning game after game. The financial angle also came into consideration. It w as thought that probably the majority of the students could not afford the price of admission. And so last year all the students were allowred to see the games free of charge. Most of us know’ the results of this noble experiment. Six home games wrere played last season. The attendance was absolutely disheartening, to the faculty as well as to the members of the team. Why continue to foster a sport in which the students were not the least bit interested and which cost the school hundreds of dollars each year to conduct? There wasn’t any reason in the wrorld why the school authorities should continue 1o allow Aquinas to be represented on the court under such conditions. It was not any credit to the name of Aquinas to see those countless numbers of vacant seats at our home games. It really became a necessity as well as a duty that basketball be abolished. Inter-scholastic basketball has been given a fair chance to succeed and now it is only right that intra-mural basketball be given an equally fair chance. Thus far, there has been a great deal of interest shown in this new deal. If. in this way, enthusiasm for basketball can be aroused among the students, there will soon come the day when Aquinas will again regain its prestige in the sports world. Robert Wahl one hundred-twenty-nineSports “Fight, fight, fight, for the old Maroon and White.” So goes the school’s fighting song and for the first time in the school’s existence every student regardless of size or ability has been offered an opportunity to do what he has always desired—represent the school in athletics. The intra-mural program of sports arranged by Mr. Leary under Father Grady’s supervision is responsible for this change. At first many were certain that this plan could never meet with any great success but the enthusiastic turn-outs for intra-mural baseball and basketball quickly won over the sceptics. In the past students were always willing to turn out and cheer the efforts of the chosen few who represented the entire school in each sport; this year there was a different attitude. The students wrere still willing to cheer others but they also wished to engage in active competition themselves. Therefore it was with this desire in mind that the intra-mural plan was devised by our principal. Football alone was kept as an inter-scholastic sport because it offered training to so many candidates. We shall summarize the football season and then go on to discuss the results of the various home-room teams in both basketball and baseball. As far as games won and lost are concerned the football season was a failure, however, in regard to the physical and moral training the squad and its few loyal supporters received, the season was even more successful than the preceding year when the team was undefeated. Aquinas lost not only a football game but also all her fair-weather rooters when she dropped a loosely-played fray to a strong eleven from Brighton. The team and a fair number of followers were rewarded for their loyalty by seeing a clean victory over Leroy who later clinched the championship of the Monroe County League. The worst beating of the year was handed out by the speedy Caledonia gridders; the next game was lost to C. B. A. only by the narrowest of margins, an almost certain victory snatched away by the time-keeper. A comparison of the strength of this year’s team and the undefeated squad of the previous season may be had by the comparison of the victory of each team over Geneseo; the scores were practically the same, indicating that the number of defeats w7as chiefly due to a higher calibre of opposition. The last two games, bitterly fought contests, wrere lost to Newark and St. Joe’s, respectively by one-touchdown margins. We extend tardy congratulations to Coaches Johnny Sullivan and Mort Leary, Captain Dan Meagher and the remaining squad.one hundred thirty-three both regulars and substitutes. May the teams of the future keep fighting with that same spirit which you have shown in victory and defeat. The home-room leagues were divided into two loops, the upper-classes forming one, and the freshmen forming the other. Soft-ball was chosen in preference to hard-ball in both loops because it did not require so much equipment. Room 307 emerged victorious in the upper-class league after Joe Witzigman rose into prominence by pitching a no-hit, no-run game against the strong 306 team. In the frosh loop 107 showed real class in over-whelming 108 in the first two games of a scheduled three game series. These games allowed approximately half the students to play while in the past the baseball squad was never larger than twenty in number. At the end of the first half of the basketball season it seemed as though 307 was headed for another championship but the second half saw the rise of 318 who proved their mettle by defeating all other senior home rooms and also the junior and sophomore champs. A large crowd of followers turned out to see the crucial battle which featured Meagher and Neary as opposing centers. It was a nip and tuck battle all the way with 318 drawing ahead at the finish to win 21 to 18. And the game created more interest than the inter-scholastic contests of previous years. The freshmen not to be outdone by the upperclasses, organized their own league and a close struggle for championship honors followed. Room 106 coached by Mr. Hurley, came through for the title, with rooms 108, 121, and 206 tied for second place. In behalf of those who benefited by these games, either by participating in them or by witnessing them, we thank Father Grady and Mr. Leary for their co-operation and assistance in making them possible.

BarkerCljr Class of ’34 yt E are all hero-worshippers. In our every day life, struggling painfully and slowly toward our goal, we love to look up to one who has successfully accomplished the same task, and perhaps try to emulate him. But whether consciously or unconsciously, we all pattern ourselves, to a certain extent, after someone who appeals to our fancy, and in so doing, w'e are actually making ourselves more fit for the battle of life. In our daily life at Aquinas, whether we consider it difficult or easy, pleasant or unpleasant, we are always striving toward a definite goal. We encounter trials and are sometimes bowed with gloom, and yet we find happiness more often than sorrow. But many of us merely consider this four years as an important incident in preparing ourselves for life. But what is this, indeed, if it is not life? You may say that we are but learning about life, experimenting with its force, but do we not study and experiment from infancy to senility? Like the fighting sailors of days gone by we are merely serving our apprenticeship. Soon we will receive our “papers” and take our places as “full-fledged seamen”. But let us not forget that the apprentice often shared the danger and hardship of the rest of the crew, and usually did twice their work. Thus he became inured to suffering and sorrow, and feared nothing, dead or living. We are now serving our apprenticeship. From the day we first entered the portals of Aquinas, we set ourselves to this task. Perhaps, as Freshmen, we did not fully understand this fact. We struggled along in a world peopled by Juniors and Seniors whom we perhaps imitated and Sophomores whom we cordially disliked. As Sophomores ourselves, we began to have a more comprehensive view, and to recognize great things to come. We have now completed our Junior year. If we have not yet distinguished ourselves in some line of activity there remains one more year in which to do so. It may be that, in striving for our diploma, we have learned to pause and enjoy the beauties of the world through which we are travelling. If not, we shall in years to come. Sooner or later we shall find that the greatest pleasure is not in the end, but in the means, and that hard work is indeed one of our greatest blessings. March on. Juniors of Aquinas! Let us never forget the school in which we have spent, and are to spend, so many happy hours. Let us ever remember to honor her memory by acquitting ourselves as Catholic gentlemen. Donald O’Brien, ’34 one hundred thirty-five Mt Versatile. Have you ever met a fellow who could do one thing and nothing else? Perhaps he stood high in studies but was a washout in athletics; or perhaps he could dance to the admiration of many but had positively no knowledge of current events; or again, he might have known the name of every tree and bird in the United States but did not know whether Andrew Carnegie was the king of Peru or one of the defendants in a recent murder trial. Such a person may be a wizard in his own field, but unfortunately his genius is of little avail, for to be successful in this modern-day world one must be many-sided. When the trend of the copper industry may be influenced greatly by the latest discoveries in science, when success in many lines of business depends on associating with, conversing with, and impressing other people, when the pace at which life is lived is such that it is necessary to keep the body fit and the mind keen by utilizing every leisure moment in the pursuit of enjoyable sports and hobbies, one cannot afford to have a one-tracked brain. Not only is versatility necessary to success but it contributes greatly to the enjoyment that may be derived from life. If a person, wearied by the routine of the day, has hobbies to which he can turn, if he likes to read or to study astronomy, if he enjoys growing flowers and appreciates good music, and particularly if he is inclined toward several or all of these things, he will find far greater interest and comfort in life and will succeed much more in living it to the full than one who can only sleep off his weariness. Nor does being versatile mean being a Jack of all trades and master of none. Rather it conforms to Abraham Lincoln’s statement that “a learned man is one who know's something about everything and everything about something”. The success of Julius Caesar, one of the foremost figures in the history of the world, is attributed in large part to his versatile mind, Caesar being a great general and a constructive statesman, and having written poetry, orations, a treatise on grammar, a criticism of Cato, a book on astronomy, a collection of witticisms, and accounts of his military campaigns. The number of Leonardo da Vinci’s achievements is staggering, and Queen Victoria is said to have begun the study of the Sanskrit language, one of the most difficult in the world, when she was over eighty years of age. Similarly we find that all great leaders, living and dead, are remarkably versatile, and in order to join their ranks we too must become many-sided. John L. Keenan, ’34 one hundred thirty seven£5 opf)omores In tabulating the regime of the present Sophomore class it might be convenient for the moment to merge it into the aspect of an individual. An analysis of this individual would reveal a myriad of facts essential in forming any kind of conclusion as to the efforts of the second year men. At first glance he appears a quiet and well mannered lad, studious, perhaps, on the average unobtrusive enough, and seeming a facsimile of what some teachers dream about. Appearances, however are often misleading, and while he exhibits this nature a good part of the time there are other moods entirely distinct from this which demand our consideration. Primarily he is, although earnest enough, just the least bit egotistical in his new found station. Having passed one experimental year in high school he is inclined to look upon himself as a seasoned veteran, capable of sage comment concerning the problems of the day, and of condescending criticisms toward the few who labor beneath him in what appears to be a misty vale. He is just a little smarter than any unfortunate who happens to match wits with him, just a little beyond any influence interfering with his ideas of how things should be done, and indifferent regarding matters over and above his ken. Nor is this attitude at all blame-worthy or unnatural. It is the inevitable result of advancement in which the student in his fancy spurs on ahead of himself, engaging in that which he is unprepared to meet. Strange indeed would it be if the class of thirty-five proved an exception to what precedent has established; stranger, if it were then portrayed as a model of shining virtue, a noble enough state, yet hardly to be looked for in the present instance. But do not think that this is merely a chronicle of faults with neither rebut nor other counteracting power to lighten its severity. Upon delving more deeply into our chosen subject we find ambition, loyalty, and determination, three excellent qualities which include within their scope, the desire to succeed, devotion to the institution and to the faith that cements it together, and firm resolve to make the most of opportunities afforded. Our class therefore may be compared to others in a similar stage of development, in so far as hope and spirit extend. Unlike the rest it is our sincere belief that this most illustrious sophomore division will prove a superior exception to its outside combatants in the years lying ahead. Thus rests our opinion then, and, although “an ill-favored thing”, it wants time alone for just corroboration. Alfred Boylan one hundred thirty-nine apologetics In September, 1931, the former senior religion course was superseded by a new one—Apologetics. Novel as it was, the course has been most popular and cherished by the Senior Class. Apologetics unlike its nominal meaning, is not an apology, but a defense and demonstration of our Christian religion. The course is grounded on an argumentative basis, that is, the Divine Revelation of Christ is defended by rational arguments. Following the syllogisms and their proofs, the objections which are offered by Catholicism’s adversaries are refuted. Apologetics is an important and beneficial factor in defending our religion against the highly educated opponents who attack the Christian’s proofs. How can the ordinary Catholic cope with such opposition unless he has been trained in Apologetics? What is the value of this training, you may ask? I firmly believe that after leaving school the Seniors of Aquinas will be most strongly fortified against the assailants of our Divine Lord’s Revelations. With such a knowledge, a graduate may encounter any stranger or friend, at places often times where the priest may not enter and discuss his religious views without fear of criticism, because he can show authentic convincing testimony for professing Christ’s word. I am sure that Aquinas will be proud of her graduates, when they enter into the world which will afford many problems, queries and complications, because they will be able to stand on firm ground as far as their religious knowledge is concerned. The solution to the world’s friction with Catholics will be given by the students trained in Apologetics. In conclusion allow me to state the opinion of the graduating class: “Now we can forcibly attack Christ’s assailants. Apologetics besides polishing our Catholic education has presented ade-al | quate proof why our religion is the only, true revealed one. Its fruitfulness will in the very near future be exhibited. May the good work of Apologetics continue!” Joseph D. Bonanno one hundred forty-one FRESHMEN $istorp of tijr Jfresljmait gear HE thoughts one has concerning Aquinas during his first year may, perhaps, be summed up in these three sentences : I. “What’s Aquinas?” II. “So this is Aquinas!” III. “Hurrah for Aquinas!” To satisfy the question asked by the first thought, but a very few days are necessary. The speed, the change of classes, the many rules are really confusing to the newcomer; but, contrary to the general belief, a freshman really does possess a certain amount of intelligence. Before many days have passed he can see that order, not confusion, is the object of all these innovations. The second thought is somewhat slower in maturing. One can dimly see that Aquinas is a school, a good school, but the real meaning of it does not come for quite a time. Studies soon begin in earnest and with them comes hard work. It is soon apparent that this is really a school of work and that its student body can be composed only of workers. Realizing this, not a few of our members have found their names listed among the honor students of the school. Our third thought, an appreciation of Aquinas, soon follows a true conception of Aquinas. It is realized that it does mean something to be a member of the student body, for it is truly a “select school.” Our first year has perhaps been difficult, but who will say that it has not been worthwhile? Although the primary purpose of the school is education, we found that the old maxim, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” holds good in high school as well as in any other place. Several extra-curricular activities were opened to us. The music department offered three distinct organizations in which qualified freshmen could partake. Dramatics offered a field of endeavor for many, and this opportunity was eagerly grasped by not a few of our class. We also found a very elaborate schedule to provide for our recreation. A freshman home room baseball league was organized and later on a basketball league. These sports in which the individual took part, together with those played by a representative team, did much to make the year more pleasant. W'hat a year this has been for us, the class of ’36—a new President, a new deal, seemingly a new country and certainly a new community! Norman T. Kridel, ’36FRESHMENSpeaking of (Organisation Political parties boast of their organization, their clock-like method of operating, and the efficient way of swinging their armies of workers into action at election time. But when we look farther, we find that selfish motives prompt many politicians and that fraud and corruption are an unalterable blot on the history of almost all parties. Where, then, shall we find a perfect organization? Immediately we think of religion, for here men are prompted, not by selfish gains, but by altruism and now perhaps we can arrive at a perfect organization. But there are so many religions! Is it Confucianism or Buddhism, Catholicism or Protestantism? This question is not perplexing if we read the history of these religions. Prescinding from its Divine origin, we find that, from the purely human point of view, the Catholic Church presents something unique. In what other organization is there such discipline, such order, such unity of sentiment and such noble allegiance? Where else do we find so many people living together, not divided among themselves, but united in their practice of the teachings of Christ which have been kept unstained and have not been distorted throughout the ages? Even our adversaries will concede that the Catholic Church is supreme in grandeur and sublimity. The Jesuit who leaves the comforts of his home and labors incessantly in China or Japan, and the pastor of a metropolis cathedral—both are inspired by the same motive, both work for the attainment of the same ideal, for the glory of the same God. The Catholic Church teaches the same doctrine to the wealthy banker of New York and to the humble peasant of India. What other institution has succeeded in building an empire that knows no boundaries, that stretches from Rome to Shanghai, from the United States to the lowest tip of Africa? Yes, great organizations there have been, great leaders there have towered in the history of mankind, but no institution has ever reached such sublimity and perfection as the Catholic Church, no others have ever practiced such self-abnegation as her saints, no government has been able to survive so many battles, and no human effort has ever been able to turn tears into smiles, and sorrows into bright hopes, as has the Catholic Church. I see the hand of God, as from the hilltop I gaze upon the forests standing like sentinels and upon nature clothed in her richest robes; I see His work when I pause and wonder over His creation of a Napoleon with his heroism and a Lincoln with his nobility of heart; but I see my God better, I see Him with a more loving eye, I adore Him more, when I look into—the Catholic Church.

URING the past year, we have witnessed a series of destructive acts in Germany which have tended to plunge that nation still deeper into the miseries which have been engulfing her since the war. The Hitler spirit of intolerance has gone so far as to endeavor to eliminate the Old Testament of the Bible because of its Jewish connections. Logically, the next step would seem to be public oppression or persecution of the Christian religions, notably the Catholic and the Lutheran. But these two religions are so powerful and have so many followers that the Nazis henceforth must be much more careful in their attacks. However, with his success against the Jews, it seems obvious that Hitler’s next step will be an attack upon Christians. Beside the present happenings and conditions in Germany, there are three other countries which have been in the headlines concerning religious upheavals. The countries are Mexico, Russia, and Spain. Two of these countries are preponderated illiterate, but the third country, Spain, is a country where the average of education is every bit as high as our own. In recent years Catholicism has been jeopardized in Spain but at the present time there are signs of a glorious awakening, principally because of Catholic Action and its propaganda. In the case of Russia, we have a primitive form of government. It isn’t difficult to see that Communism is gaining more ground in the United States than is commonly believed. Today, there are over two million communists infesting our country. This would not be alarming were it not for the fact that every communist is a self-avowed enemy of the Catholic church. The American nation as a whole should voice its protest against recognition of Russia until the Soviet Government “ceases agitating for the overthrow by force of the United States government.” For Catholics, and in fact for all believers in God, there is an additional and more cogent reason to fight recognition. This is found in the anti-God campaign being carried on and fostered not only in Russia but in other countries. The Mexican question has long been before the American people. A persecution of Catholics, which in savagery far exceeds the persecution of the Jews in Germany, has been going on in Mexicofor several years. Unlike the publicity given the Jews, the public press has been strangely silent. “America” commenting on this situation says: “The papers, led by the New York Times, have played up the German persecutions day in and day out, all over their columns. Just try to get them to do the same for Mexico. The only answer is that they are not in possession of the facts, a shameful admission for an enterprising press. The truth of the matter is when Jews go about getting publicity for protests over persecution, they mean business. Catholics do not begrudge the Jews this protest, and have readily joined with them in expressing their horror at what is reported out of Germany. Let the protests go on. At the proper time we shall ask the people of this country to say what they think about persecution of Catholics in other lands also.” When this time comes the Church is sure to have a strong, unified force behind her because she has been instrumental in striving for peace among nations, be they Catholic or otherwise. It is my personal opinion that back of the agitation in each of these countries is a certain group of citizens who are determined to benefit by the course which they are boldly pursuing. The great majority by their silence appear to be consenting to what they heartily oppose and detest. Herein lies a lesson for us. The old proverb, “Silence gives consent,” is applicable to all of us at the present time. Who knows where the lightning bolt of intolerance next will strike? First Russia, then Mexico, then Spain and now Germany—is there any guarantee that America shall not be next on the list? If there is a guarantee, it will be found to have its base in “Action,” vocal action, action of the written word, but least of all physical action. Our Holy Father calls upon the whole world, “to unite, and to resist with all their might the evils that are pressing humanity and still greater evils that are threatening.” The “Commonweal,” a national Catholic weekly, commenting on the conditions in Russia states: “The question whether protest should be made against gross injustice has been settled by the conscience of mankind. If bitter wrong be done to millions of innocent victims, it is unthinkable that humane men and women should hold their peace. It is inevitable that they shall voice the protests of their souls. It is historically true that such protests have not ‘done harm’ but have been a mighty remedial force of good. It is not protest against wrong but silence that does harm.” Robert Wahlberime Show us any other medium more important than the Maroon and White for the development and elaboration of the duty of service. Since service is the act of helping another, there is a multitude of ways in which this school paper can be a benefit to all. It is a means by which the students of Aquinas and those interested in them, may become better informed of the current school events. By it a better spirit of friendliness may be diffused through the school itself, so that the school may become more than the four walls enclosing rooms set aside for classwork. From the Maroon and White the students may acquire a sense of responsibility and interest in the task of making school work a lighter burden for all. Is there any other way by which the students may better express their own ideas or of conveying the boys’ efforts to the friends of Aquinas with greater clearness than through the pages of this great school paper? We must, in all sincerity, answer—no! It may be said that the paper is a sales-agent, for the primary and basic motive in a salesman is the desire to help—either himself or someone else, and perhaps both. Everyone is aided by the Maroon and White. This assistance is rendered only after the salesman has adapted himself to his surroundings. Any business executive takes careful and sound methods to render the utmost in service to his clients who are seeking expert advice. He can accomplish the best only by complete cooperation of the staff and customers. So, in the Maroon and White, likewise, success depends entirely upon the students themselves who comprise the editorial staff and also the subscribers. The amount of success of the publication will be in exact proportion to the amount of effort put behind it by all. Let every man contribute to this paper and do his part in years to come. Let him cooperate! Then, when all is said and done, try to measure or calculate the extraordinary benefits resulting to all.

What a majestic and glorious name! It is a name which is held precious in the hearts of many a youth. If you should ask an alumnus what that word means to him, he will tell you just this: “It means the very foundation of my life”. But, you will say, what is that foundation? This can be answered in just one word —Religion. Aquinas makes us realize the value of Religion. How fondly shall we remember those religious conference hours, those talks given by the missionaries, or the mission day when we had such a good time, when we hear the word Aquinas. With that title is associated all that is helpful to the human and spiritual soul. Our school days at Aquinas are quickly drawing to a close, but let us thank God that we still have that majestic name to use as a record of the past.
