Instructing us in all branches of knowledge and especially in the rudiments and practice of our Catholic faith, our faculty has done a noble work and accomplished much. From timid freshman the Aquinas faculty has drawn and molded the true Catholic gentleman, the Aquinas graduate. In an atmosphere of Catholicity, it has built, upon foundations laid in the Catholic family, character as straight and as true as the unbent sapling. Deep within the soul of each Aquinas graduate, the faculty has planted the seed of the love of virtue, which upon germination in the constant reception of the Sacraments and in good works, will grow and blossom into an imitation of the life of Christ, in Whom all virtue is exhausted. In seeking an education, what more can we ask than we have already received? In a Catholic manner, our souls, minds and bodies have been developed. We have been trained to cope with moral, mental and physical obstacles. We have learned the lessons in the textbook and now we go to seek their application in every walk of life. And, with heavy hearts, it is with this thought that we leave our instructors and the halls we love so dearly: "May God bless and protect our Faculty!”Graduates of The Aquinas Institute of Rochester A OU leave us to continue your life. Life is a J- great blessing. You have been taught to live your life to its fulness—in God. All that you now have learned has pointed to that great fact. You have surmounted the "Arete" of the Greeks and become the Aquinas man; with the "Credo" of Saint Thomas Aquinas you go forth Catholic gentlemen. Always put that belief into action. Life will test and try you. Your measure of success will be the constancy by which you daily give from your soul in thought and speech and act the teachings of Jesus Christ. THE FACULTYCarl T.

Robert Keefe had won a place in all our hearts before a mortal illness laid claim upon him. After long weeks of unusual suffering, the good God at length took him to his eternal home. With the goal of graduation looming bright on the horizon, Samuel Leo was taken from our midst shortly after the opening of the second semester. His ability as an organizer and worker, his deep interest in all class activities, made Sam an invaluable member of the Class of '37 and as such, he is remembered by classmates and faculty members alike. To the families of Robert Keefe and Samuel Leo, our deepest sympathy and kind thoughts. Requiescant! Samuel LeoCLASS OFFICERS Benedict Duffy President John Tormey Vice-President Edward Hammer Secretary Thomas Madigan T reasurerWE, THE SENIORS For an apt description of this, our graduating class, there is, perhaps, no criterion more accurate than this instance. In our first year a few of us decided that we ought to organize a freshman football team. A faculty member's cooperation as a coach was obtained; a notice was placed on the bulletin board; results were awaited. Perhaps you know the rest of the story. So enthusiastic was the response that not one, but four teams were formed. A coordinated effort gave our class an unique distinction; and this same coordinated effort has distinguished our entire four years of high school life from mediocrity. By far the most important occurrence in our high school life has been the change in ourselves. Participation in activity has guided this metamorphosis—for no change is ever wrought without activity. And in whatever we have indulged, either in class or out, we believe we have established a laudable mark. Our reminiscences of these years will be among our fondest. We shall always be envious of Francis Curry’s scholastic achievements. Benedict Duffy's success as a forceful speaker and as an even more forceful shouter will allow us to swell and say, "I knew him when—Those of us who are sports-minded, and who isn't, will always regard George Yahn and Charles Bonsignore as exemplary athletes. John Tormey's fine work in editing our newspaper will long be remembered and, from what we have seen as this copy goes to press. Bill Schnacky’s efforts on this, our year book, deserve every commendation. We shall chuckle and guffaw when remembrances of more trivial matters come to us. Who could forget Ed. Hammer’s writing twenty-four pages on a civics examination, or Worthy Forward’s spending a dollar ten to taxi a date to the Senior play? Sam Schiavo’s scientific phenomena always have, and always will, amaze us. And, lastly, we offer our abject apologies for our alleged column "So What”. Four years have given us ample opportunity to prove our worth. We believe that our stay has shown that the training given us has not been futile. As a whole, we have accomplished what every class aims at. The development of the individual and of the group has been, to our minds, all that could be expected. Throughout four years we have been banded together, driven by a common force, steering toward a common goal. During that period we have become fiercely proud of those numerals '37. It is our greatest hope, it is our fondest desire that we have justified our pride. The train is pulling into the depot. This is where we get off. Our teachers have shown us "the Way and the Life”. The long walk to our home way up in (he hills must be made alone. May the Great Teacher help us!The retirement in July of last year of Doctor Avery W. Skinner, Director of the Examinations and Inspections Division of the State Department, was a distinct loss to Aquinas Institute. In Doctor Skinner our school had, at Albany, one whose interest in its success and scholastic progress was measured only by the mutual friendship existing between him and Father Grady, a friendship which has become deep-set through the years. The Faculty and Student Body of Aquinas take this occasion of publicly expressing their true appreciation of all the kind courtesies in which they have shared through the concern and thoughtfulness of Doctor Skinner. ■ 0 51 ►The Reverend Walter Miller, S. J., '22 Amai'il emu Domnins et ornavit emu: s olarn gloriae inJnit emu. Alleluia! GRADUATION day will have an added significance for us this year, as on that day in the chapel at Woodstock College, Maryland, the Reverend Walter Miller, S. J., of the class of 1922, will be ordained to the holy priesthood. Only those of us, we are told, whose pleasure it was to teach this young man in his high school days can fully appreciate what a wealth of learning went with him into the Jesuit community. He was as proficient in English as in science and as able in mathematics as in the classics or history. After two years at Syracuse University he entered the Jesuit novitiate in the summer of 1924, only a few months after his brother, Maurice, who was ordained last June And now, after thirteen years of preparation, he will soon come back to us as God’s anointed to celebrate his first solemn Mass at the church of his childhood days, Saint Michael's. To the Reverend Walter Miller, S. J., to the Reverend Maurice Miller, S. J., and to all the members of the Miller family, our warmest congratulations!The Reverend Walter Miller, S. J., '22 O high and holy Priesthood! Vocation most sublime! O, Priest of Cod, your least of cares Outreaches far the marge of time Upon your youthful shoulders strong A priceless trust will soon be laid. God’s loving care uphold you! In strength Divine be not afraid.ANGELO SECCHI— ASTRONOMER, METEOROLOGIST, PHYSICIST THE patron of the Aquinas Science Club, Angelo Secchi, is an excellent model for the future scientist. The strength of his faith in God and his loyalty to the Pope, as well as his skill in the field of science cause the Catholic to admire him all the more and to aspire to the possession of such fine qualities. The life of this great man attests his virtuous character and scientific genius. Angelo Secchi was born in Reggio, Italy, on June 18, 1818. His father was a joiner and a member of the Middle Class. Angelo's early schooling included even such arts as sewing and knitting. When he was sixteen, he entered the Jesuit Order at Rome and completed his humanistic and philosophical studies at the Roman College. His extraordinary talent for the natural sciences was soon recognized and he was ap pointed tutor of mathematics and physics at Rome in 1839. In 1841, he was professor ol physics in the Jesuit College at Loreto. After studying theology for six years, he was ordained priest. At the outbreak of the Roman Revolution, he left Rome, eventually arriving in the United States with twenty other exiled Jesuits. together with these, Secchi settled in Georgetown where there was an American university and observatory conducted by Jesuits. Here he brought his theological studies to a close by a brilliant examination for the doctorate, and joined the university faculty as professor of physics. At this time, he devoted very little study to astronomy, wishing to perfect himself as a physicist. He finally returned to the Roman College and, in 1850, he became director ol the observatory there. Poor buildings and the lack of modern instruments confined his work in astronomy. His chief study was on radiation until 1852 when a new observatory and new instruments saw the beginning of his brilliant scientific activity and European fame. As a meteorologist, Secchi did much research work in studying the aurora borealis, one of the best calculators of the courses of such. His work on the spectra and physical conditions of various moons and planets is most notable. He was among the first to study the eclipse of the sun as it is investigated to-day and he made many discoveries concerning its corona. In the study of fixed stars, he invented the heliospectroscope, the star spectroscope, and the telespectroscope. He also established the five types of stars after a nine years' study of 4,000 spectra. These discoveries are of as great significance as Newton's law of gravitation. As a meteorologist, Secchi did much research work in studying the aurora borealis, the origin of hail, quicksand, the effects of lightning, and the nature of good drinking water. He investigated terrestrial magnetism and electric currents and originated the prognostication of weather from systematic observations of these effects. He gained hisgreatest fame, however, from the invention of the "Meteorograph”, a weather machine, skillfully constructed, which works night and day and records the curves of atmospheric pressure, temperature, rainfall, and similar conditions. The instrument created a great sensation at the Paris exhibition of 1867 and earned for him a large gold medal as a prize of honor from Napoleon III. As a physicist, Secchi was a disciple of Piancini and devoted himself to astrophysics. He acquired world-wide fame by reason of his greatly-admired work, "Sulla unita delle forze fisiche”, which attempts to trace all natural processes to kinetic energy. He here anticipates and even in certain ways outstrips later investigations and views on natural science. Being a true Christian and philosopher, Secchi did not extend his "kinetic atom-istics" to the domain of the soul and the intellect as others had. In fact, his whole natural system was rightly founded on a theistic basis inasmuch as he traced back the world of matter and its motion to a Divine Creative Act. His firmness of faith and fidelity to the Pope and Jesuit Order were more than once put to a rude test after the capture of Rome by the Piedmontese in 1870. However, no enticements ever altered him. He continued his investigations without expulsion by the new rulers until his useful life and brilliant career were ended when he succumbed to a fatal disorder of the stomach on February 26, 1878. SACERDOS IN AETERNUM The flower of manhood, clad in robes of black, His youthful eyes asparkle with the joy of life, His ready hand assisting those in need. In the spring of life, he is a priest. When grey his aging head begins to turn And bent he is beneath his tiring load, When heavy cross he has so nobly borne Through paths of life, he is a priest. When the clarion call of death his life doth end, His soul to God triumphantly doth fly; And in eternal glory and renown With God forever, he is a priest.LILACS Some purple cones A fairy filled With sweetest scent From dreams distilled. Then out beneath The evening sky The fairy hung Her cones to dry. When I awoke I found them there All fragrant in The morning air. COURAGE A robin came In early spring The wind was cold But he could sing. A crocus peeped Above the snow No sun smiled down Yet it could grow. I look around The world seems dark What is the use In life—but hark! The robin sings. Yon crocus grows. Should 1 not be As brave as those? MUSIC "The glad song of life—the inspiration of the poet and the seer and the priest— the guiding force that makes us who live on this atom of firmament akin with the Almighty, beyond the ocean of stars unseen.” Etude— Under the capable leadership of Mr. Hasenauer, the music department at Aquinas Institute has attained new heights in the realm of both instrumental and vocal music during the past year. The orchestra and the band have given concerts worthy of the efforts of any high school symphonic orchestra or band. In addition, the Glee Club has shown itself to be of the mettle of any similar organization in the city. The orchestra, too, has lived up to expectations, with its splendid performances of various selections which were not intended for high school organizations. This year Aquinas can be justly proud of her musicians who, by their exceptional ability, won high honors in the All-State Band and Orchestra Concert at Ithaca. Not satisfied with their already proven prowess, Mr. Hasenauer engaged a group of competent instructors to extend still further the musical ability of his musicians. Then entering into competition at Elmira, with bands representing all sections of the state, the Aquinas Band received a rating which was enviable in the light that it was their first year in competition. The orchestra, too, received a rating which further illustrates that it is an extraordinary group. As we close our career as Aquinas musicians, we wish to offer our heartfelt acknowledgment, both to our director Mr. Hasenauer, for masterful guidance of all the branches of the musical department and for the wizardy which he displayed in obtaining the best results from the resources which he had on hand, and also to the faculty and student body for their whole-hearted support of all our efforts to give them the best we could in music. 1 58 K ANNUAL CONCERT BY The Aquinas Orchestra.

That Mr. Raymond Hasenauer is one of the outstanding high school directors of music in the State has long been recognized and each presentation of a program to the public or the student body strengthens this claim. As a tribute to its year's achievements, the Aquinas Glee Club was privileged to sing the choral parts of the solemn Mass offered on the Feast of Corpus Christi, the first high Mass ever celebrated in Aquinas Institute. For the Faculty and student body this Mass had a special dual significance. The stately Lauda Sion, the sequence in the Mass for the feast, is from the pen of our own Saint Thomas Aquinas who may rightly be styled the Poet of the Eucharist as w'ell as the Angel of the Schools. It also furnished a fitting introduction to our Mission Day program since all present joined in imploring the Victim of Love to bless with unprecedented success, each detail in our Mission Day activities. THE ROCHESTER CIVIC ORCHESTRA To Mr. Guy Fraser Harrison and every member of the Rochester Civic Orchestra the faculty and student body extend deepest gratitude for the many and enjoyable hours we have spent with them in our auditorium.LIBERTY AND FREEDOM Rising majestically from Bedloe’s Island, and holding her torch of freedom high above all contamination, the statue of "Liberty Enlightening the World”, given by France in 1886 to our country, on the hundredth anniversary of our freedom, dominates New York Bay. If you climb up the three hundred and fifty steps to the head of this colossus, which is so large that forty people can stand in it—you will see the entire harbor and surroundings spread out below you. You behold a bay swarming with shipping from the ends of the earth, islands and mainland bristling with docks and ships; the tangle of waterways arched high with massive bridges, and the aweinspiring skyline of New York looming rugged and dark against a clear blue background. This famous statue greets traveler and immigrant alike. For both it signifies a deeper understanding of America. The immigrant sees in this statue a symbol of the liberty, the opportunities and the resources which will be at his command. The traveler returning, perceives this striking figure from afar, calling him home to a country whose principles he holds so dear. France and the United States hold the sacred trust of liberty in common. France obtained her liberty through internal riots and bloodshed. It was a great price. America gained its freedom through war with England. Hers also was a great price, but the price paid by America was small compared to the great heritage that has descended to us. However, while America has always opened its doors to all classes and all nationalities, it must now discriminate between those who will seek to strengthen this God-given liberty, and those whose philosophies are alien to our doctrine of freedom. One philosophy under the guise of helping the worker has gained a foothold. But this Communist Doctrine is not a doctrine of freedom, but one of slavery, in which all personal liberties are lost. At the present time this American liberalism of the last two centuries is under strong attack, for the principle of man's rights is being challenged. Already the liberty for which our forefathers paid so dearly is being sold for thirty pieces of silver. All around us we see and hear of chaotic conditions, the economic insecurity, the urge toward Communism, the ruling of men by machines and the return to a totalitarian state which seem to doom our freedom. However, if we ask why this is so, we must answer that liberty has not been properly cared for by the individual. He has been seeking liberty with no regard for freedom. Liberty is not freedom, but the result or consequence of freedom. While liberty is bestowed externally, freedom comes from within, from the soul. Thus, it is, because liberals sought liberty while disregarding freedom, that the cause of liberty is in ◄ 64 ►a state of destruction today. The beginnings of liberty are in the Catholic doctrine of free will, that is, in man's knowledge of his own moral freedom. It is evident, therefore, that there will be no return to liberty until man recognizes his freedom. Nevertheless, it must not be the so-called liberty of the moderns, which is an alliance between faith and false philosophy and which rouses the spirit of disobedience and demands a compromise between authority and liberty. At this point, it is the Catholic who knows where to turn. This knowledge can be restored only when man’s apprehension of God and of himself is restored. When we know and submit to God’s Will, we will then have illuminated our own nature, showing us what we are. Then we have gained our liberty. Perhaps few who know and sing "America” have ever learned the last verse. It can be used appropriately in conclusion, for Samuel Smith shows most strikingly that God is the true cause and reason from Whom pure liberty emanates. "Our Father’s God, to Thee, Author of liberty, To Thee we sing Long may our land be bright With freedom's holy light Protect us by Thy Might, Great God our King!” LESSON I weep At wounded pride. Or broken heart, or death. The stars that hang above the earth All smile. PROGRESS In widening circles on the ocean Thought, The ripples spread, and reach to every shore. The launching of a tiny fragile bark Unnoticed, was the fertile bearing core.IN RETROSPECTION A S we seniors look back over the four years which we arc about to conclude at Aquinas, our eyes are dimmed and we are sorrowful that the traditions which to us spell Aquinas must be left behind and that now we begin a new life, a life in which Aquinas will presumably play no part. It is evident that w'e cannot continue our schooling at Aquinas forever. The time will come, and has now' arrived, when we must leave the teachers, the classrooms and the halls which we love so dearly, when we must take our places on the roster of graduates, when we must go forth so that others who seek what we have found, a truly Catholic education, may take the places which we vacate. Although it is with deep regret that we take leave of our Alma Mater, there persists within us a sense of satisfaction that we have received the best in education, a thoroughly Catholic training. We feel secure because w'e realize only too well that the entire man has been developed, the soul as well as the mind and body. We feci self-satisfied because we know that the practical knowledge which we have acquired rests upon the firm and stalwart foundations of the Catholic faith. In all our texts, in all our lessons, we have been taught the value and the importance of virtue. We have been shown, throughout our entire four years at Aquinas, how and why we should lead the ideal Catholic life. We have learned from the example of a Catholic faculty the real and the ultimate objective of our existence. We have learned through a systematic course in religion the tenets and the history of the faith we so fondly cherish. We have learned the fundamentals upon which a virtuous life should be built and we have likewise learned how a successful Catholic life should be built upon these fundamentals. Yes, we have learned much and now as graduates we will soon venture forth to apply the Catholic principles with which we have become so familiar. During our four years at Aquinas we have tried to uphold the traditions so well established by our long list of predecessors. We have tried to keep inviolate those things which to Aquinas alumni are sacred memories. And now as potential graduates we earnestly desire that the traditions which we respect will be upheld by those who follow us. With our successors we leave the responsibility of continuing the noble work which was begun before our time and which we have tried to continue. In the future, as in the past, we expect and w'e are confident, that Aquinas will develop Catholic character in Catholic gentlemen, that Aquinas will continue to instill into the hearts of her students the burning fire of love for their Catholic faith and at the same time, to train her students to live, as Catholic laymen, true practical Catholic lives."LABURNUM GROVE" The annual school play, "Laburnum Grove", by J. B. Priestly, was still another success for the Aquinas Dramatic Club. A three-act comedy, directed by Mr. Dolan, the play is set in a London suburb and centers around the activities of George Radfern, played by Robert Keefe. On account of his portrayal of Mr. Radfern, an amiable middle-aged man, it was hard to imagine the kindly Radfern as a counterfeiter or anything else than a comfortable small business-man. His chuckling delight over two red tomatoes grown in his greenhouse typifies his character entirely. In the leading role, Robert Keefe turned in a remarkably capable performance. The part of Bernard Baxley was safe in the hands of David Curtin with his pronounced British accent, flippant speeches and indolent manner. So amusing was Baxley that it was with real regret one saw him leave at the beginning of the third act, protesting about his bags and still talking of "the chaps out East." A large part of the interest and amusement in the play was sustained by Curtin, who consequently carried off a large share of the honors. 68 »"LABURNUM GROVE" Clifford Whitcomb, Joseph Conway and William Sweet had the leading feminine roles. Clifford Whitcomb paced the action of the play with his lively characterization of the young girl, Elsie Radfern. Joseph Conway was truly convincing as Mrs. Lucy Baxley. Her withering remarks to Bernard were delivered in truly feminine style. William Sweet, in the comparatively small role of Mrs. Dorothy Radfern, gave a very realistic performance. Edward Keenan, in the part of Harold Russ, turned in an exceptionally fine performance of a mercenary young man. Murray Zealor, as Joe Fletten, offered a striking portrayal of a clever crook and evoked amusement with his falsetto exclamations of fright and excited action over the advent of Inspector Stack, played by Rossney Smyth. Raymond Siebert, as Sergeant Morris, delivered his brief lines well. ' Laburnum Grove” was well-staged by Albert Tulley, Ward Guncheon and Robert Brady. The success of the play was the result of the performances of the actors, the skillful management of the stage hands and the capable direction of Mr. Edwin Dolan."AS IT WAS IN THE BEGINNING'1 Aquinas has for the second time produced its Lenten Play, "As It Was in the Beginning”, and a second time it has proved a marked success. The play was written and directed by Mr. Edwin J. Dolan and played and staged by the Aquinas Dramatic Club. The play drew a parallel between the slaying of an honest mayor by modern racketeers and the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It was very vivid, and several scenes were extremely touching. One could feel the audience literally holding its breath. The closing scenes in this new presentation were a considerable improvement upon last year's offering; they were much clearer, much more dramatic, much more arresting. Once again the Aquinas Dramatic Club presented a religious spectacle which attracted the attention and admiration of Catholic Rochester. The players, stage crew and the director merit praise for this impressive presentation of religious art. 1 70"As It Was In The Beginning" PROGRAM PART I Scene I. The Mayor's Office Scene 2.

As It Was In The Beginning Complete Cast of The Aquinas Lenten Play 71 ) THE SENIOR PLAY The Senior Class and the Dramatic Club dosed the year's dramatic activities with the presentation of the Senior play. The Good Fellow." It was one of the greatest comedy hits ever shown on the Aquinas stage. The school's appreciation of the play and the masterful direction by Mr. Edwin J. Dolan was shown in the large and attentive audiences that were present for the performances. From the beginning until the fall of the last curtain, the entire audience was held in hysterics by this hilarious comedy. The very presence of actors upon the stage created a murmur as the women roles were fulfilled by students. This notorious comedy told of the foibles of small-town lodge members and of Jim Helton, whose ambitious sense of brotherly love nearly lost for him his paternal affection. The comic solemnity of the lodge meeting kept the audience in continual laughter from the beginning until the end. Situation upon situation piled up until the apex of mirth was reached. The lead was taken by Ben Duffy, whose voice and personality brought forth a great performance. His appearence as Napoleon was attended by roars that shook the auditorium. He was supported by Tom Manion, as Mrs. Helton, in a fine performance which marked his debut to the stage. Murray Zealor took up dutifully the role of a small-town boy, who was unsuccessful in his attempts of love-making to Clifford Whitcomb, who played the role of Helton's daughter. The witty remarks of Joseph Conway, as the mother-in-law, gave an added zest to the plot. The remainder of the cast turned in noteworthy performances in the persons of Robert Keefe, Raymond Bopp, Albert Tulley, Tom Frawley, Carl Aiello, John Kelly, James Keenan, William Halloran, William Scanlon, Martin Moll and Stanford Murray"THE GOOD FELLOW" THE CAST Mrs. Kent Mrs. Helton .

Saeculo quovis fuit unus qui speciali modo laudem hominum mereret. Scriptores eminentes etiam tempori antiquo non defuerunt. Considerate in primis opus Vergili, cuius descriptio laborum Aeneae pii, qui in Hesperia novam sedem Troianis fugientibus quaesivit et reperit, adhue mentes lectorum delectat. De quo nunc pauca scribere mihi proposui. Publius Vergilius Maro natus est anno septuagesimo B. C. in oppido Andibus, prope Mantuam in Gallia Cisalpina. Pater suus libertus fuit et agriculturam exercuit. Iuventa Vergili nullo modo praestans fuit. Fuit simillima vitae multorum puerorum illius saeculi. Pater autem curavit ut primo Cremonae, deinde Mediolani et Romae doceretur. Anno quinquagesimo Vergilius toga virili indutus est, id quod indieavit puerum nunc virum factum esse. Duobus annis postea Romam se contulit ut studia prosequeretur et ibi annos undecim remansit. His studiis peractis, domum revertit ubi poema “Ecologues” de pastoribus scriptum composuit. Anno quadragesimo patronum Maecenam invenit, id quod facultatem poetae edidit ad facilius studia sua exsequenda et praesertim poema “Georgies” de agricultura. His carminibus speravit se amorem vitae rusticae in animis populi Romani restituturum esse. Eo tempore etiam benevolentiam Imperatoris Augusti nactus est. Fama Vergili autem opere epico, “Aeneide” maxime recolitur. Poeta hoc opus perficiens decern annos consumpsit et praeterea tres annos diutius sumpturus erat sed mors interposuit. Auctor tria sibi proposuisse videtur: ut imperatorem laudaret et conciliaret, ut populo Romano gloriam gentis suae recoleret, et ut ad religionem antiquam et reverentiam erga deos animos hominum revoearet. Viro Aenea et amore deorum, gentis et patris usus est ut haec efficieret. Publius Vergilius Maro est unus ex poetis maximis omnium saecu-lorum. Exemplum multis aliis et tempore antiquo et nostris diebus ad scribendum praebuit. Est, sine dubio, stella clarissima in firmamento litterarum. «74) THE AQUINAS MISSION UNIT CONCLUDES ITS MOST SUCCESSFUL YEAR THE cooperation given to the many activities of the Aquinas Mission Unit during the past scholastic year has enabled the Reverend Director of the Unit to proclaim this year the most successful in its history. The extraordinary zeal for the missions which the majority of the students manifested in every mission activity proves that Aquinas students realize now more than ever the significance of the words of the crusade hymn "the Sacred Heart for all the world; the whole world for the Sacred Heart!" Under the capable leadership of Father O'Donnell, the mission officers elected from the senior class expended all their efforts to make this year a banner one for the Unit; and how they have succeeded, their fine record shows. In addition to their regular monthly home room meetings, the Unit sponsored many mission assemblies during which guest speakers described in detail the activities of Catholic missionaries in foreign lands. A large delegation represented Aquinas at the Cathedral on Mission Sunday. But this year, Aquinas made the people of the city of Rochester mission-minded. A new and novel idea for raising funds to support the missions was conceived by Martin Moll and the first mission paper drive was launched. With a leader in every parish, and with collecting centers scattered throughout the city, the Mission Unit managed to collect five hundred dollars worth of old papers and magazines. But this was only fifty per cent of the sponsors' desired objective. The Mission Unit was determined to raise a thousand dollars and consequently the second paper drive was inaugurated. Profiting by the mistakes made during the first campaign, the directors appointed a captain and four aides in every home room. Papers were brought in every Friday and Saturday for five consecutive weeks. Every week-end of the five, the gymnasium was flooded with a bulk of old newspapers and magazines which the ambitious collectors brought in, and after Father O'Donnell and the captains finally straightened the records, the mission society had far exceeded the quota which had been so conservatively set. The second paper drive netted a profit of fourteen hundred dollars, an amount comparable only to the ambition of those who cooperated so admirably both in giving old papers and collecting them. In order to finish the year's work satisfactorily, the members of the Mission Unit, with seemingly untiring spirit and effort, proceeded to plan out the activities for the annual Mission Day. Without any doubt, this year's Mission Day was unrivaled by any of the past. The dramatic club, the band and the orchestra, and the student body joined in making this event a great success. The Mission Day sale of prize tickets and the sale of hots, pop and confections on the Campus, helped to swell the already large sum of money collected for the missions. With a record such as this to back it up and with this series of successes written into its history, the Aquinas Mission Unit can be expected to do bigger and better things in the future.A MEMORABLE MISSION ACTIVITY The Aquinas Mission Paper Drives were a huge success and as such will go down in the history of our Mission Unit. However, there are memories which only those intimately connected with the activity; the principal, the organizers, the captains and those who took an exceptionally interested part in the drive can appreciate and tuck away where they keep that treasury of unforgettable happenings which go to make life interesting in restrospection. Remember Father O'Donnell's marking the poundage on the tags—Father Feller's staggering in under a load of papers to help swell his two thousand mark—Father Merkel's weekly count of the poundage to 119's credit—Father Grady's appearing in gym with a request to collect a pile—now here, now there- Father Loughlin's weekly roundup from 305; Bill Edward's skill at truck loading the sleet of that second last Saturday Bud Hamm's shout of "Come on, fellows," at the new appearance of a line of cars; the familiar questions in hall, library, lunchroom: "Have you brought in 200 lbs.? When will you be ready? We’ll call for them.” Father Kelly's quiet, persistent keeping at it and his final spurt which made his room the freshman topper Father Hastings' basketball game after a 308 collection Mr. Sullivan's last Saturday marathon in the cause of 312—Odenbach and Werner bringing them in from near and far. big bundles and small bundles, well-tied bundles and bundles falling apart, theirs was a mammoth task and Aiello and Forward and Hagenbach and Schnacky and Corrigan and Miller and Leinen and Wegman but it is all over—the memories are ours to cherish and to cement us to our Alma Mater, home of mission-minded men. Delegates to the coming Mission Convention, Cleveland, August 17—20PAPA PIO XI Oggi mentre la carriera della Sua Santita Achille Ratti, Vescovo di Roma, torna verso il suo tramonto, convien scrivere qualche cosa in questo libro, dei suoi compimenti—le sue contribuzioni all'umanita, e piu, alia Chiesa Cattolica. Dopo sacrifici enormi (la sua famiglia era povera), fu ordinato prete all’eta di ventidue nel mille ottocento settantanove. Quindi era professore nel seminario di Milano. Da quest’officio ascese rapidamente al capo della biblioteca ambrosiana, al prefetto della biblioteca del Vaticano, ed al visitore apostolico alia Polonia nel mille novecento diciotto in cui dimostro la sua grande abilita come diplomatico. Era nel mille novecento ventuno che fu consecrato Arcivescovo Cardinale di Milano, e solamente un anno dopo successe alia santa Sedia di San Pietro come Papa Pio XI, succedendo Papa Benedetto XV. Come Papa s’6 distinto solvendo differenze fra la Chiesa e altre nazioni d’Europa. Complesse concordati con la Polonia, con la Baviera, con la Lituania, e finalmente nel mille novecento ventinove, dopo due anni di negoziazioni, con il governo italiano. Questo trattato solse la problema romana, diede al Papa gli stessi onori e diritti in Italia come il Re, e lo fece sovrano indipendente del Vaticano. Pio XI pubblico nel mille novecento trentuno due lettere encicliche, in una di cui scrisse sul matrimonio e nell' altra sul problema tra il capitalismo ed il lavoro, accentuando il diritto di propriety privata. Come Papa Leone XIII, disse che il capitalismo ed il lavoro sono dipendente l’uno sull’altro, ed anche cito la necessita d’aiutare il proletario. Nell’ottobre dello stesso anno circolo un altra lettera, “Nova Impendet”, in cui discusse la crisi economica che era discesa sul mondo. In questo mondo sempre cangiante, la Sua Santita ha manifestato le stesse virtu dei grandi Papi dei tempi antichi. La sua forza di volonta, che si mostra nella sua malattia presente, e uguale a quella d’lldebrando, la sua sapienza e uquale a quella di Gregorio Grande, e la sua santita e uguale a quella di San Clemente VI. Tutte queste virtu erano visibili nelle sue ultime trasmissioni radiofoniche, in cui esorto la pace. Probabilmente questa sara l’ultima volta che parlera sul radio, ma speriamo e preghiamo che Dio lo conservera.RADIO BULLETIN—OCTOBER 20, 1967 Washington, D. C.

The students fully realize the value and beneficial aspects of these courses. They have availed themselves of these and they have now become a vital part of their school lives. Extra-curricular activities compose a major part of education. It is commonplace to say that the development of character is the end of all school work. The difficulty lies in the execution of this idea. And an underlying difficulty in this execution is the lack of a clear conception of what character means. This may seem an extreme statement. If so, the idea may be conveyed by saying that character is generally conceived in terms of results. Character is most aptly developed by extra-curricular activities; that is, by companionship and social contact in the various clubs offered at Aquinas. Any desire of youth may be satisfied by one of the clubs. Sports—composed of football—basketball—tennis —bowling; music, dramatics, science, stamp collecting, and the modern languages— French—German and Italian make up the work of these clubs. By determined interest in this work, character as well as knowledge is acquired. At this time, we, the Seniors of the school, would like to thank the faculty-directors who have donated their spare time that character of youth may be developed. Their work is appreciated. They are the sculptors who have moulded our future lives. Tormey Gay Daly Aielio Bonsignore . Frawley . Roth . Wegman Madigan Halpin . Fuehrer . Werner . Golding . Schnacky . SCHEID .

Smith Manion Hagenbach Sercu SENIOR PALSTHE AQUINAS SPORTS PARADE FROM the very beginning, it has been apparent that Aquinas teams would go places. Flashing and displaying an incentive never to be outdone, the sports calendar at Aquinas has always been tilled with thrills and interest. Basketball, whose history practically begins with that of the school, shares a major position on the sports program. A varsity team, consisting of the best and most polished players of the school, represented the Maroon and White on foreign hardwoods and at home. Always guided by the excellent coaching of Mr. Leary, they met only the most worthy of opponents. In the intra-mural sports department, basketball topped all other athletic activities. Weekly encounters kept the student interest always at fever pitch. Football, the American boy's dream, held the other major sport position. A team, always worthy of the name Aquinas, and possessing a fine lighting Irish spirit, made the school football conscious. Mr. Sullivan, whose sturdy hand has guided the football future of Aquinas teams for so many years, once again was at the helm. Football still maintains, and always will, the sport supremacy in the mind of every Aquinas student. Bowling, for its fourth consecutive year, had immeasurable success. Comprised of over a hundred bowlers, the league embarked upon a program, which sustained and increased student enthusiasm as it progressed. Valuable prizes constituted the prime interest-hook, which assured the league untold success. Bowling has definitely placed itself as one of the foremost sport attractions at Aquinas. A tennis club made its debut on the sports calendar this past year. The student support placed behind it is a fine indication of its future success. Little is known of the club’s procedures but, nevertheless, the club should and will undoubtedly continue, as it has great promise as another major sport. Intra-mural baseball concludes the sports schedule. Promising ball players, wearing individual home room spangles, displayed their determination to win, and as a result, made everyone deeply interested. The enthusiasm of the under-classmen over this sport gave to it its much deserved success. In conclusion, it may only be said that the outlook into the future concerning Aquinas sports appears very bright. As long as a will to win and Irish fortitude show the way, Aquinas will never lose its fine prestige in the field of sports. BASKETBALL Aquinas and basketball are so closely related that one regards them as identical. Such sports as football, hockey and golf, as well as bowling, tennis and swimming have held, at one time or another, a place in the sports curriculum of our school. But basketball still maintains its place of honor. This supremacy is due not only to the advantage of years in existence, but also to the enviable records established by our court teams. It is a pleasure to present to you a brief summary of basketball for the past tw'o years. Many maintain that the 1927-28 schedule was the most difficult in the history of the game at Aquinas, for it contained such teams as Cook Academy, Niagara Frosh, the strong Assumption team from Utica, and many other teams which stood high in their sectional ratings. However, Coach Leary and his Irish five were successful in 14 out of 21 games. A very enviable record, indeed! In 1928-29 necessity caused authorities to reduce the number of games to eighteen. Again, against some of the strongest opposition in the East, the Aquinas lads continued to uphold Aquinas tradition by winning eleven of the eighteen games. However, the following season, 1929-30, was not so brilliant, for the Maroon and White suffered the sting of defeat more than they enjoyed the ring of victory. Mr. Leary did succeed, however, in "rounding up" a team from such players as Haynes, Dowling, McNally and many others. That season the team won but eight, while it was losing nine. The 1930-31 season was a very successful one. Only two games were lost that year, one to C. B. A. and the other to Mynderse. St. Joe's of Buffalo, Utica, U. of R. Frosh were only a few of the prominent teams to suffer defeat. When the final whistle of the season had blown, Aquinas showed the favorable balance of fourteen out of sixteen. In the 1931-32 season, another Leary-coached team enjoyed much deserved success. With such teams as C. B. A., Canisius Prep., St. Joe's on the schedule, the boys in Maroon tasted defeat but thrice in the thirteen starts. Due to many uncontrollable reasons, it was necessary that authorities dispense with the inter-scholastic schedule. However, a rigid intra-mural program was adopted in which all home rooms participated in class leagues. However, the fall of 1933 saw Aquinas' return to inter-scholastic combat. An impromptu schedule was drawn up, consisting of merely eight games. The year of absence from the hard wood didn't seem to hamper the style of the Aquinas lads, for they were successful in six of the eight games. The following year again saw an impromptu schedule. This time only seven games were played. When the final whistle had blown in Auburn, the Aquinas boys had not felt the sting of defeat. In 1935-36 we find the first complete schedule in four years. Many claim that the coordination of the team, consisting of Nolan, Maggio and Santay and many others, was the finest ever seen on an Aquinas hardwood. Eleven of the thirteen games were victories, but the two teams which defeated Aquinas in the earlier portion of the season were later defeated on the Aquinas court. These records plus the record established this season prove the fact that Aquinas is supreme on the court as well as in many other fields of endeavor. Mr. Leary's teams have, in the past ten years, won approximately eighty-one and lost about thirty-nine. This record is one that we should be proud of. We owe Mr. Leary a debt of gratitude, for the fine teams he has placed on the court. 81 t VARSITY BASKETBALL CLUB With a thrilling four point victory over Holy Family of Auburn on the Auburn court, Aquinas concluded its 1936-37 court campaign. This encounter brought to a close one of the most baffling schedules ever faced by an Aquinas team. With the return of C. B. A., Niagara Frosh, St. Joe's and many other formidable teams to the schedule roster, the Aquinas five was sure of a difficult season. The boys opened in Niagara Falls against the Niagara Frosh team, but because of inexperience and stage fright, the school boys came out on the short end of the score. However, in that game, they did at time show' sparks of unbeatable form. The unfortunate loss of Ed. Hammer, short-set artist, after the Niagara game was very keenly felt and the coach was forced to change his plan of attack. With Ed. out for the remainder of the season, Mr. Leary floored a smooth-passing, fast-breaking five. George Yahn, a veteran of three campaigns on the first quintet, and one of the greatest offensive players to come under the Leary coaching, held down a right forward berth. His shooting and ball handling proved a valuable asset. At the other forward post was "Bob" Bowe, a rookie, who became one of the mainstays in the lineup. His fast cut-in shots and marvelous checking were the chief causes for the defeat of many opponents.■ At the center position was "Bud" Courneen, another first year man. His bright and offensive work under the basket proved a great asset for offensive play. He continually kept the boys in the game when going was tough. Captain Charles Bonsignore, a big rough-and-ready football star, was assigned the right guard duties. His fighting play kept the team moving all the time. ' Big Chuck-’, who scored when points were badly needed, was paired with John Hastings. John's experience merited him the checking assignment. His uncanny ability to make ’’pop shots” pulled many games out of the fire. Aiding these five regulars were "Gordy” Connolly and "Pat” Peartree, two valuable men on the offensive as well as defensive. Both had the ability to step in on short notice and play top-notch ball. Frank Beatty, a lanky senior, pressed Courneen throughout the season for the center position, but lost because of his inexperience under fire. Culhane and Gay were two men who stepped in to guard high scoring forwards of the opponents. Keefe, although he saw little action, was a great aid to Mr. Leary. His fighting and continual drive kept many prac tices from getting dull. Undoubtedly, the team suffered defeats which could have easily been victories. Had the quint been able to coordinate more smoothly, it could have had a much better record. Nevertheless, a team with more spirit and sportsmanship, has never trod the hardwood in Aquinas’ name. The reserve quint accompanied the varsity on many of its trips. From the showing, we can see that other holes left by graduation will Ke easily filled by the youngsters from the reserve team. It may especially be noted that the large majority of players on this team came from the Freshman and Sophomore years. As a whole, the season has been a total success. The seven wins and six losses of the varsity and the five victories of the reserve quint prove that fact. 1936-1937 RESERVESRAMBLES THROUGH THE HISTORY OF AQUINAS FOOTBALL a ''T T ALIANT is the word for Aquinas.” Nowhere could such words as these be expounded to characterize our Aquinas anymore than within the realm ’ of football. Odds, which at the moment, seemed unsurmountable, became only a more deeply founded incentive to succeed. An objective success was to be achieved, and only by conquering all odds would the goal be attained. At the commencement of football at Aquinas, there was a dearth of material, both in players and in equipment. However, with a will and a way and under the capable leadership of Mr. Sullivan, the opening season, 1931, went down as one of the most successful of all. In the succeeding years the calibre of the opposition was increased. New teams such as the Niagara l-'rosh and St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute of Buffalo, tried to become thorns in the sides of the Irish. Every foe was extended the limit before ever conquering the Aquinas juggernaut. An Aquinas team always confirmed their superior prowess from the beginning by "beating all within their ken” to practically keep their slate clean of actual defeats. A casual survey at the schedules just completed, will convince anyone that soft spots are conspicuous by their absence. Names of individual stars graced headlines and grew up so as to make themselves long living in the memories of all Aquinas supporters. The names Marks, Connelly and Ricey—have entered that Aquinas hall of "Immortal Eame". The relative merits of individual teams can only be attested to by taking a look at the records. The '31 and '36 seasons appear to be the best on paper. In '32 the "Irish” had more than their share of hard luck. With all the requisites of a winning eleven, the Aquinas outfit was barely able to eke out two victories from the seven contests played. With the exception of '32, the past football years have been of almost equal merit. The years have been packed with thrills and joys. Future teams may profit by the work and sacrifice of their predecessors. Football's destination at Aquinas rests in our hands. Let us continue to bear the burden. An old adage tells us that the "Irish" live forever and so may the glory of Aquinas football live forever.AQUINAS INSTITUTE FOOTBALL 193 I through 1936 193 1 Aquinas 14, Fairport 13 20, Geneseo 0 " 33, Webster 0 21, U. of R.

The cream of the surrounding sections was met. Powerful and hard hitting, the Aquinas aggregation mowed down their foes relentlessly, creating an enviable record of but one loss and that a moral victory. Midst lusty cheers of Aquinas’ backers, the Maroon and White crashed through the surprisingly stubborn defense of Irondequoit and opened the season with a win, 13 to 0. Then the greatly vaunted Le Roy juggernaut was next as opponents. Climaxing two sustained drives of 60 and 80 yards respectively, with Bonsignore and Sullivan at the helm, Aquinas took a last quarter victory of 26 to 18. Moving with fine precision the "Irish" trudged triumphantly off a quagmired gridiron after taking their third straight victory from Newark, 13 to 0. With the entire team proving themselves real "mud-ders”, Aquinas offset the hard charging and ever changeable tactics of the Central New York team, and with strictly ground football converted two hard-earned touchdowns. Arousing themselves to fever-pitch and creating a wave of confidence amongst both themselves and the student body, the Irish were determined to make Niagara Frosh taste their first setback at the hands of the boys from the Institute. Nor did their confidence prove in vain until the final three minutes. George Yahn had scored two successive touchdowns, one on a 30 yard sprint and the other on the end of a long pass. However, a physically beaten Aquinas defense which saw Bob Sartini seriously injured, collapsed in the last quarter, and two rapid-fire touchdowns by the Purple in the last three minutes spelled the first defeat for Aquinas in nine consecutive games. Still smarting from the defeat by the Niagara Frosh, the Sullivan coached men rumbled over a light, but fine spirited, St. Mary's eleven from Niagara Falls by rolling up a decisive score of 26 to 2. The Blue and White line was torn to shreds by the onslaught of Aquinas which carried the ball repeatedly down the field and eventually over the goal line four successive times in the hands of the bruising Bon signore, Ed Sullivan, John Hastings, and De Marsico. Flashing their new green and silver togs instead of the customary maroon and white, Aquinas' dreams of potentiality were jolted when they penetrated St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute's end zone but once. Bonsignore carried the ball over and also added the extra point. Chastened by a lecture from Mr. Sullivan expounding how the '36 eleven can either make or break itself in their final encounter, Aquinas swarmed over East Rochester, former county champs, to the tune of 45-0. Every player asserted his superiority by running wild, in, out and around the bewildered East Rochester gridders to cover them with a barrage of touchdowns. The swan song had ended in a blaze ofZi m e r G. ijpapiiSENIORS Oden’bcich T. A-bki ns on H3Thus at the climax of 1936 with cleats formally hung up and togs awaiting new donners a team incomparable in spirit and team play has passed in review. Schooled in the spoils of a win as well as a loss, the Acjuinas Institute team made history in their battle with the Niagara h'rosh and besides, built up individual stars and tore down their hard fighting opposition. The glory of the Irish was to reign for another year. 1936 FOOTBALL CAPTAINS L.THE WHY AND WHEREFORE OF AQUINAS CLUBS TO the Aquinas student, the spirited active Aquinas student, the word "club" connotes all the meaning of a true club and especially of such an organization worthy of being fostered under the guidance and approval of an Alma Mater which strives for and attains the best available in all matters. A club should awaken and develop the student's spirit and interest in his school; it should enable him to find a natural outlet for his intellectual ambitions and tendencies for a particular field of endeavor. And, perhaps, more lasting of all, a club should offer its members the opportunity for the development of attractive personalities and lasting friendships. Of course, clubs arouse their members to fruitful activity and instil in them an enthusiasm in the work and projects of each individual organization. Through clubs, students find that studies do not necessarily have to be all work and no play. They soon realize that their school and its academic subjects really have an interesting side that can be known through intelligent pursuit which works to the profit and enjoyment of all in the group. The work carried on by the various clubs goes beyond the prescribed syllabus into the subjects’ free and interesting phrases. In similar fashion, clubs enable students to quench their thirst for knowledge by drinking in the flow of learning found behind club room doors in the after-school hours. The embryo scientist finds, with fellows of similar interest, an opportunity to delve into the mysterious and enlightening realm of science; the smooth-tongued linguist finds satisfaction by becoming fluent in expressing his ideas in a foreign tongue and by learning of the country and people whose language he is studying. Likewise, thes-pians are given chances to portray the emotions of others, philatelists to interest themselves in the study of their stamps, and students of history to discuss the effects, actual and possible, of the governments, events, and legislation coming to the fore in this exciting and sensational world of today. Finally, clubs bring students and teachers together in a contact which shows the teacher the ambition, cooperation and nature of his students and which proves to the students that their teacher is a friendly human being who also likes to have a good time. Clubs open many phases of each subject to investigation and show that subjects consist not merely of difficult, sometimes boring, but nevertheless necessary parts, but also of interesting, instructive, and often amusing branches. They encourage the abilities of each student, cultivate his faculty for self-expression, and round out his personality in a pleasing manner. Thus, Aquinas clubs do honor to themselves by the work which they promote anil the effects which they produce among the students. They are to be congratulated heartily for the satisfaction they have brought to their many members, not by lowering education to the level of recreation, but by raising recreation to the standard of education. So, within this "Arete” is found in picture, each club group, with the name of its faculty advisor, its officers and the date of its organization as a recognized Aquinas Club.EA AHXIKII 1 EX Xtjvixij , rj y). jxa tcov fo6f(ov, fj y). o)tt« TI?)V JtQto TCOV Jl HT|XuW XOl TC?)V JfQ(OT V YC?

IMPERMANENCE Egyptians in the far-departed East, While mindful of the common lot of all When out his few brief sands of time did fall, Sat with the skeleton beside to feast. A slave triumphant Caesar did remind, "Though now in the ascendent is your star My lord, forget not you still mortal are!” Lest over-adulation strike him blind. Poor pagans! Now' w'e moderns can forget All fear of fall from our celestial height For are not self-sufficient we? Still yet, Just what have we, what strong defense Against the danger of eternal right If w'e know not the cause why we go hence?MAROON AND WHITE IT IS about three o'clock in the afternoon when a delivery truck pulls up alongside of Aquinas. Two compact bundles are taken from it, hurried inside the doors and • carried up to Father Marks' English room. Quickly the bundles are opened and their contents are arranged in carefully counted piles by hurrying Seniors who soon hustle along the halls to thirty different home rooms throughout the school with their much-awaited burden. A few minutes later the entire student body and the faculty as well, are perusing the contents of what were originally two innocent bundles of paper. What’s going on? Haven't you guessed? The "Maroon and White” is coming out! On the way home in trolleys, buses, and cars, the paper is avidly read, discussed, passed around, possibly criticized, but always enjoyed by everyone. At home, a few parents may give it a quick glance. It is often compared by students of other high schools with their school paper and finally it is thrown away. In school, the "Maroon and White” Exchange Editor mails copies to over fifty schools throughout the United States and its territories. In a few days, the paper is forgotten and work begins on another issue. This is the public side of the "Maroon and White”—the side with which the majority of the students are familiar. But wait, there is another side. What is really behind the crisp monthly edition? An answer to this question is rather difficult because it is so complex. Digging up news and stories, assigning writers, gathering copy, writing editorials, reading student contributions, correcting copy, arranging the final make-up of the paper and writing heads are but a few of the duties which the staff of the "Maroon and White” must perform every month and whose faithful execution serves to make the "Maroon and White" what it is, a school publication worthy of Aquinas. The 1936-1937 editions of the "Maroon and White” all owe their success to the splendid and untiring work of the staff, whose cooperation and interest set a precedent which succeeding staffs will find hard to emulate. The original ideas, capable writing, and editorial support of the associate editors Edward Keenan, Worthy J. Forward and William Schnacky, were present at all times in an endeavor to better the sheet. The other members of the staff: David Miller, with his conference reports; Francis Curry, with his many excellent columns; Ben Duffy, with his reports on the plays; Murray Zealor, the poet extraordinary; Thomas Frawley and Thomas Manion, crack sports reporters; Theodore Ferris and his many contributions; Charles Langworthy, with his music news; AI Calamadino and his "Campus Opinions”; Eugene Roth, with his scholastic news; Sam Schiavo, the man of science; Jerry Weinss, artist and humorist; FrankGolding, that witty fellow; and Edward Hammer, the prolific exchange editor, all worked not only individually in a fine manner, but also united for the common end a better "Maroon and White". This year the editors have tried to establish some new policies in the paper. The increased use of news and faculty pictures, a series of student polls, a bigger exchange-column, a "Listen Editor" page, and a freshman page in an early issue were all instituted with the hope that they would mean increased student interest in and appreciation of the school paper. To Father Marks we owe a debt of gratitude. His steady work and rigid standards of excellence, both in copy and in make-up, have maintained the "Maroon and White" at its present high level. The editors and the staff take leave of their duties with regret and wish not only the new staff, but also every future one good luck, good wishes, and good "Maroon and Whites".

On a appele le Frere Andre partout au monde “L’homme de miracles,” et il a donne toutes les cures affectees au Reliquaire de Mont Royal au credit de Saint Joseph. Le Frere Andre etait un d’onze enfants nes a pauvres parents fran-?ais-canadiens et il est devenu orphelin a un jeune age. Beaucoup d’ans se sont ecoules avant qu’il ait appris a lire ou a ecrire et, apres avoir developpe une devotion a Saint Joseph en travaillant en sacristain d’eglise, on lui a permis d’entrer dans la Congregation de la Croix Sainte en frere laique. Il y a beaucoup d’ans, le Frere Andre, inspire par sa grande amour de Saint Joseph a commence la collection de fonds pour faire construire un grand reliquaire en honneur de ce saint fameux. Longtemps, il a sauve son propre argent. Bientot, cependant, l’accumulation de fonds est deventue tres grande et a 1’heure de sa mort, on venait d’achever le travail sur la nouvelle basilique qui a coute $4,000,000. La piete et l’enthousiasme du Frere Andre ont fait a beaucoup de personnes visiter son reliquaire et contribuer aux fonds pour la basilique. Le Frere Andre etait un exemple extraordinaire de l’humilite. On ne peut pas surpasser le comble de l’humilite auquel cet homme est monte; il etait barbier et concierge dans les maisons de sa communaute. II a considere Saint Joseph son heros et a cause de cela Saint Joseph l’a aide a guerir les malades et a construire le grand reliquaire sur Mont Royal, a Montreal. Son humilite l’a eleve a un grand comble de l’admiration sacree. Vraiment, il etait illustre parce qu’il s’est considere insignifiant. Tout en mourant, il a dit a ceux a son chevet, “Priez pour ma conversion.” Qu’il etait humble! Plut a Dieu que nous puissions l’imiter et son humilite! Puis, aussi, nous serions illustres.THE CLASS OF THIRTY-EIGHT One year left! One milestone to pass! What a multitude of events are crammed into the years behind us. It is with great delight that we review these past three years and with some regret, that we look forward to the parting after one more year at Aquinas. But for most of us, this, our third, has been such a fast-moving year that we may have lost sight of some of its highlights. Look back in spirit and see if you remember when— Lather Grady once again began the year with Holy Mass and reiterated the purpose of Aquinas—to form Catholic gentlemen. Then, when the multifarious and varied duties of the first two weeks—buying books, signing papers, and meeting new faces— | 10} ) THE CLASS OF THIRTY-EIGHT had subsided, we threw ourselves enthusiastically into studies and extra-curricular activities. Some of us chose athletics—the football team, which again consistently defeated all high school challengers; or the basketball squad which, too, acquited itself most creditably for dear old Alma Mater. For others the choice was music—the glee club, band, or orchestra; all of which had a very successful season, the instrumental departments especially, since they were represented at the All-State Music Convention at Ithaca. Others devoted spare moments to dramatics. And still another facet of this multi-sided block is Aquinas' Clubs—French, German, Italian, History, Philatelic, Science and Bowling Clubs.THE CLASS OF THIRTY-EIGHT In all of these juniors took part, either conscious or not that they were helping to materialize Father Grady's ideal: clubs to broaden and cultivate the mind; athletics to provide wholesome physical development; which, together with comprehensive religion courses, will produce intelligent Catholic gentlemen. But this scene of the significance of our junior year vanishes; our musings return to the present. What will be our thoughts one year from now as we survey in retrospection our senior year? Time alone can tell. But let us pray God that our coming year may be but as filled with achievement as this one, 1936-1937, has been. Charles Langworthy, '38 io5 ! DIE NOTWENDIGKEIT DER REALIEN Heute mehr als jemals horen wir von der Notwendigkeit, die Lander und Nationen der Welt einander naher zu bringen und sie besser zu verstehen. Die fiihrenden Geister aller Lander geben dieser Bewegung ihre Unterstiitzung. Man sollte glauben, dass wir auf Grund der modernen Verbreitung der Presse, des Films und des Radios dem Ideal viel naher stehen als unsere Viiter. Was fur sie nur ein Wunsch war, kann fur uns leicht eine Moglichkeit werden. Hier kommt viel auf den Unterricht in den Schulen an, denn die wirkliche grundlegende Arbeit, die zur Verstandigung der Volker unter einander fiihrt, wird nicht in der Presse und nicht in Filmen geleistet. Sie ist die Aufgabe der Schulen. Besonders durch Realien in dem fremdspraehlichen Unterricht kann man das nach und nach vorbringen. Erst durch die Kenntnis von Lander und Volker gewinnt das ges-prochne Wort das Konkrete, Plastische und Farbige, das der fremden Sprache eben Leben verleiht. Die fremde Literatur bietet eine reiche Auswahl von schonen Volks-liedern, Romanen, Novellen und Dramen, worin der wahre Geist der Kulture steht. Auch die fremde Landschaft, die Lebensart, die Arbeit, die Vergniigungen, der Charakter, so wohl wie die Sprache, sollen vor den Augen der Schuler stehen. Land und Volk bilden eine Einheit. Zum Beispiel, auf welche Weise sind Hamburg von Munchen, Dresden von Koln verschieden? Hamburg, eine alte Hansestadt, ist heute noch ein Zentrum des tiberseeischen Handels, wiihrend Munchen als frtihere Residenz ein Zentrum der Kunst, der Theater und Museen, der Maler, Musiker und Dichter ist. Koln dagegen ist alte Bischofsstadt, und noch heute sind es die Kirchen, die Koln sein charakteristisches Geprage geben, trotz der grossen Bedeutung in Handel und Industrie, die Koln am Rhein besitzt. Heidelberg ist Universitatsstadt. Die ganze Atmosphare der Stadt wird beherrscht vom Geist des Studententums, der seit Jahrunder-ten in Heidelberg zu Hause ist. Je mehr Einzelheiten wir im volkskundlichen Unterricht dem Schuler durch Realien geben, umso reicher wird er sein. Systematische Darstel-lung ist sehr machtig. Durch Erzahlungen, Marchen, Sagen, Lieder, eigene Erlebnisse aller Art, gelingt es gewohnlich leicht, die junge Phantasie anzuregen. Diesen ersten Eindruck richtig zu formen, darauf kommt es besonders an. Gerade hier ist, wo Realien sehr hilfreich sind. Den lebendigen Organismus eines Volkes mit seinen geographischen und historischen Zusammenhangen anschaulich und lebenswahr darzustellen, das ist das reiche und weite Feld der Volkskunde im Unterricht. Wenn die Jugend die Nationen besser verstehen soil; wenn die Lander naher zusammen gebracht werden sollen, dann muss es durch die Schulen, von der Jugend getan werden—und wie besser als durch lebendige Realien ? ETWAS SCHWERES Vergib und vergiss! Es ist leicht zu sagen. Kann man es tun Ohne spater zu klagen? Wenn man dieses tun kann, Kann er zu sich sagen: “Jetzt habe ich ein Recht, Den Kopf hoch zu tragen!”THE SOPHOMORE CLASS They’re gone! Two glorious years at Aquinas have been enjoyed to the full by the members of the sophomore class. They have been years packed with study, sports, dramatics, and last but not least, a most valuable religious training. The only lamentable phase is the fact that this, the completion of our second year, marks the beginning of the end. The next term will start us on the third of our four too short years at Aquinas. Nevertheless, the past year has shown the zeal and the enthusiasm with which theTHE SOPHOMORE CLASS students of the sophomore class entered into the spirit so characteristic of Aquinas. The splendid work which they have done in the various fields of endeavor at Aquinas is worthy of commendation. Scholastically, the ''sophs” have achieved praiseworthy results. There is an unusually large number of second-year men on both the Honor Roll and the St. Thomas Club In the fields of sport the sophomores also have their outstanding heroes, for the sophomores are well-represented on both the football and the basketball squads. | 109 ►THE SOPHOMORE CLASS Those who have attended the plays presented in the Aquinas auditorium have undoubtedly spent many pleasant hours there. In dramatics, as in sports, sophomores have taken an active part. The sophomore class is also proud of its musicians. The number of its members in the band and orchestra is so large that it is impossible to set down their names and their many accomplishments in this brief history. There yet remains another group that has not been mentioned. It is neither abody of spectacular athletes, nor of musicians, nor of thespians, but it is a group of steady, dependable students, who persistently maintain the high standards set by their predecessors. As we look back upon our second year at Aquinas, our eyes are dimmed with tears of regret. But there are still two more wonderful years before us. Sophomores! May we make the most of them! Robert Fischer, ’39 «f m ► OUR FRESHMEN If we w'ere seniors, juniors or even sophomores this year, what attitude would we have toward our younger classmates of the freshman group? The upper-year students must feel superior, both physically and mentally, to us boys, who are still boys as far as they are concerned. They have been at Aquinas two, three, or four years, and they know' by now just where they stand. But, where do we come in? The origin of the word "freshmen'’ dates back far into the history of education. Although other students may call us boys, if we take this word apart, we have thein reality, young men. We entered Aquinas in September with that air of superiority characteristic of recent grammar school graduates. This serene sense of self-satisfaction soon vanished when we were confronted with the complex routine of the Aquinas student. With a "do-or-die” determination to succeed, we began our year as Aquinas freshmen and started down that long and impediment-filled road to education and rank as upper classmen. 113OUR FRESHMEN In all examinations, we "frosh” acquitted ourselves admirably. With a goodly number of students on the St. Thomas Club and Honor Roll, we gained an enviable scholastic record. But, the field in which the freshman class excelled conspicuously is that of mission work. The fact that the "frosh" led in the contributions to the missions and cooperated admirably in the paper drives proves their generosity and true spirit. This fine example of the interest they show in mission activities augurs a fruitful future for the Aquinas Mission Unit. Our school and mission work equals, if not surpasses, the efforts of previous freshman classes, and a successful future for our group in athletics seems almost a certainty.OUR FRESHMEN The skill of many freshmen in football and basketball will carry on the work so ably initiated by our predecessors, the "Fighting Irish"; perhaps, even greater heights of success will be attained. In all fields of endeavor and in every student activity, we freshmen have tried to give our cooperation, and now we stand at the end of our first year at Aquinas. We have overcome the obstacles of today, and we stand on the threshold of tomorrow'. What does the future hold for the freshman class of 1937—the senior class of 1940? George W.

Commencement concludes an eventful year and brings to an end our days at Aquinas.OUR THANKS The year book is ready for the press, a warning that time is hurrying on and the scholastic year is nearing its close. Already the strains of commencement music steal upon us in the quiet of the study hall or in the hush of the classroom. Soon, all too soon, our day of graduation will be clearly discernible on the horizon. It has been a good year, successful in material ways and, we hope, highly successful in spiritual advancement. To all who have aided us on its march, we are grateful. To father Grady who always viewed our actions, even our failings, with an understanding sympathy and guided with paternal counsel; to Father Wurzer who never failed in keeping the scholastic machine in smooth running order; to all the members of the faculty and student body who have exhibited a system of team work and cooperation which can be found only at Aquinas and to Mr. Hart whose patience in the administration of secretarial affairs is at times really heroic. Did any of us ever see Mr. Hart ruffled? We are also grateful to Mr. Zwierlein, of the Art Print Shop; to Mr. Furlong, photographer; and to Mr. Francis Schifferli, Jr., ’27, of The Culver-Herald Engraving Company. We are mindful, too, of all who made our paper drive the success it proved to be and we particularly owe our expression of gratitude to Mr. John Odenbach and Mr. Emil Werner, who provided transportation to the school for a good percentage of the papers and magazines, to Mr. Lawless and Miss Cohen and to every truck driver who assisted in taking the paper to the mills, for their unfailing courtesy and the keen interest they displayed in the drive. "God bless them everyone!" FAITH I sit In falling night And struggle with my fears. The while You hang upon Your cross Serene. THE DECISION A moment it quivered upon the brink And hung in hesitation, Then dropped like a star to the rushing stream To reach its destination.AQUINAS FAREWELL Farewell, Aquinas, now we leave Your sphere of glowing life; It is with backward glance we go To face a harder strife. To leave the long familiar halls, To part with friendly rooms. To bid good-bye to proven friends, A mournful prospect looms. Farewell, Aquinas, to the work That gave us sharper brain, And to the play that made us strong. Yet with us shall remain The good you've done, through all our life To make us worthy men, And to your training we can point As having priceless been. Farewell, Aquinas, we shall know No more your kindly aid, But still the tenets of your faith Shall always be obeyed. Though other Alma Maters take Your place as guardian-guide The claim of love within our hearts You never need divide. Farewell, Aquinas, we must part, Alas, forever now; 'Tis not with former partings’ joy We make our final bow. We realize at last, too late, The debt we owe to you, And all we have is honor now To offer for your due. Farewell, Aquinas, last farewell! And would it were 'hello'. For after all our eagerness Reluctantly we go. Somehow we cannot bring ourselves To sever tics so true, But all must end and so we bend Our heads in hushed adieu.Our Patrons They Deserve Our Trade 4 155 ►oo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooojoooooooocioiaooAOii.oojOOOOcoo Congratulations to the Qraduates of 37 from the GRADUATES of 1938 0 XKHyowoacw? ac(oooaooocfooacfoaoo KKKyocK cwoooo{K oooo H o ) 8ioo K OrCHa5o 4 136  ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooocoooooooooooooooooooooo Qreetings ©o Our (graduates CLASS OF 1939 q(C. 1378£ IHDiocesan Priests « 159 ►« 141 0BASTIAN BROTHERS CO.
