 THE ARETE 1940 Senior Annual ROCHESTER, NEW YORK AQUINAS INSTITUTECONTENTS 'DEDICATION OUR READERS GRADUATES UNDERGRADUATES A USIC ACTIVITIES HUMOR THE 'ROCKNE OUR ADVERTISERSPIUS XI eopn of PEACE, Pope of the Missions, Pope of Catholic Action, Pius XI, your I memory lives and you live with it. In every bleeding heart yearning for peace, lost now in this mad world, in every heart that burns to shed its light of faith far and wide to the ends of earth, to illumine the darkness of ignorance, in every heart that seeks to bring Christianity to this pagan civilization, a small bit of the essence of you, your life and teachings, is buried. From lowly birth, through your trying life, to your death in the midst of a wave of hate sweeping over the world you so loved, never once did you lose heart, never once did you cease to strive to effect a salutary change in the lives of your fellows; and all races, creeds, and colors you considered such. You were born Ambrose Damien Achille Ratti, son of a silk manufacturer, at Desio, a little hamlet of beautiful Italy in 1857; and your priestly uncle, Don Ratti, soon saw your natant possibilities, and aided in your education for the priesthood. You rose rapidly, Achille Ratti; when but twenty-two you were ordained; in one short year you received three degrees in Philosophy. Theology, and Canon Law. Soon you became a Doctor of the Ambrosian library, where your life was filled with intense piety and difficult labor. Nor all this time did you neglect your physical training; your exploits, as an Alpine climber, rank with those of the most famous experts of this dangerous sport. After becoming Prefect of the Ambrosian, you were made Vice-Prefect of the Vatican library, whence you published many, many learned volumes of an historical and religious nature. In 1907 you were raised to the rank of a Monsignor. When the cruel World War broke out you left your post as Prefect to become Apostolic Visitor to Poland and Lithuania. Upward, ever upward! Next you were decreed Archbishop of Milan; a short step led you to the honor of a Cardinalship and in 1922. though you deemed yourself unworthy, the supreme honor and the supremely difficult position of the Papacy was yours. You have done much, Pius XI; the Lateran treaty; encyclicals on education, marriage, social reform; the foundation of native clergies in mission lands; the messages of peace; all are remembered, all live on, though your body, too exhausted, too weak to contain the mighty struggles of your brilliant mind, too weak to bear the sorrows of your beneficent heart, has left us, and your spirit is in its merited rest. To Pius XI, athlete, student, man of God, we dedicate this humble effort, the Arete, senior annual of the class of 1940 of Aquinas Institute. May his eternal spirit lead the hearts of these lonely young men now leaving forever the soul-embracing refuge of this institution, along a path of life which will lead, ever straight and sure. Homeward. May this poor Italian priest guide us from our moment of departure to the time of our arrival in the land where Glory breathes, waiting, all tender, all loving, all joyous, to comfort and heal the wounds received along the way. May his love for the missions, his regard for suffering mankind, his desire for Peace live on in our hearts and in our posterity and, in doing so, effect a great revolution of love throughout the entire earth.

THE BUSINESS OF LIVING "Glad did I live and gladly die ..." Robert Louis Stevenson NOW that we seniors are about to graduate, perhaps it is best that we look ahead and envision the future—a future that will be for each unique and distinct. Some of us who are fortunate enough may go to universities or colleges. Those who shall continue thus are somewhat fortunate in putting off the business of living for a few years more and yet, paradoxically speaking, those who arc to begin making their mark in the world at present are fortunate also to have what may be termed as a head start. But in all the eventuality of time each of us must take up this business of living and do with it what we are able. And that is our prime concern -getting the most out of life. Living is an art—one that so few of us know of. The enjoyment of life for so many is merely a phrase—something to do with others and remotely concerned with them. But why shouldn’t each of us apply his talents and make the most of what he has? Each and everyone no matter what his state or condition can secure from the elements of God and nature that surround us the necessary requisites for happy living. And what does a happy life consist of? Satisfaction of the soul and mind first and then the satisfaction of the natural desires. We are indeed fortunate to be born to a faith like ours. It is a heritage which is most precious; it is the pearl of great price for which many have shed their blood. Let us consider that which an all-loving God has bestowed upon us and let us contemplate the fact that in God we have at all times someone to turn to, someone Who is the haven and refuge of all saints and sinners alike. Our religion is truly a beautiful thing, sacred beyond comprehension and it should permeate our every thought and action throughout our entire lives. Who, when beholding a magnificent sunset, the miracle of spring, the wonders of creation, cannot fail to be filled with the joy of living? For the poet joy is to be found in every flower, every scenic beauty. Every richly blended chord and mellowed tone of music is a source of happiness that swells the heart of the musician. And for those of us who are the plain, common and simple people, happiness lies in the touch of a hand, a glance of the eye, a sense of well-being. For true happiness does lie in little things. Happiness plays no favorites. It is for all, only longing to be sought after and always found in the heart. And if we see to it that others are satisfied and content, then only shall we be satisfied and content also. 20 THE ARETEFriendship, next to love of God, is the finest thing we can possess. A true friendship is rare and something that cannot be measured in terms other than love and fidelity. Perhaps too few of us really can fathom the meaning of friend. We do not fully realize what great fruits it can bear to be used in times of trials and loneliness. It is something that can never be lost and it is better by far to have only one real friend than many so-called ones. Perhaps it is a little premature to speak of it now, but in later life we will realize the truth of these words. It is difficult to speak concretely of such a subject for all of our natures are so diversified. Some of us are impervious and utterly passive to all that happens. But the feelings and mutual fidelity that exists between two friends is a universal language. That much we know. In years to come when we shall have left our mark upon the face of life w»e will look back in retrospection upon these days and it will be with much difficulty that we will recognize ourselves. There are so many forces acting upon ourselves, molding our destinies that we change daily never the person tomorrow that we are today. Some of us shall be failures and some successes, but each of us is entitled to an equal share of happiness. Some will be rich in experience and others will live drab, prosaic lives. But those who go through life living a set pattern will be satisfied, for no man can keep suppressed within himself a desire to live and seek his share of happiness. Sometimes we often wish we could gaze into the future and foresee what it holds for us, but it is better this way for each tomorrow brings a new adventure, new worlds to conquer. That is the fascination of living—this perpetual waiting to see the sunrise. Without it we should surely be lost. And above all we must be able to say that we have accomplished something. In that is the summation of all our life—a task and its completion. Always let us remember that happiness lies within ourselves. Again it may seem too soon to speak of this business of living, but when w'e are in what is affectionately termed our twilight years, we will remember and be grateful that we did prepare ourselves—that we went forward into the shining world with our armor of Faith and shield of happiness and thus did we conquer all things.

A transient life of sunshine—and of showers All gone and never to return, unless We open memory's book and retrogress And resurrect the scenes on which we dote. The panorama opens, and we note The silent, careful youth who pores his books; The bursts of merry laughter—teacher looks Askance as if to say, "You wish to pass. So why this needless nonsense in my class?" And with a weary gesture and great sigh Wipes his forehead, groans and cries "When I Went to school, things were different; pupils went To learn," and does not mind how he was sent Three times to Stark (the head, relentless foe Of laziness), and had to say, "I know Nothing of my lessons"; we oft recall How, in the brilliant, languid days of fall Our heroes swept to victory bold and proud Amid the plaudits, grateful, raving, loud; The heavy-lidded glance of those who worked Past midnight for those placid ones who shirked Their tasks; the stilted way in which the boys Took female parts in plays; the many joys And hardships too, which came from membership In band or orchestra; the gladsome trip Away to win awards; and after school The hours of practice under harshest rule; The German songs, done heartily, not well; The Mission Bouts; the strident, closing bell. That sweetest of all songs in schoolboy's ear; Assemblies which pursued us through the year. Yet, of the varied scenes which we review We cherish most a quiet, sacred few: The still, bent heads; devout and earnest prayer Under our mentor's kindly, pious care; The holy hymns, sincere, serene; the Mass. This is the sum and total of our class. The album which we loving pack away To gaze upon with tears some distant day. Edward C. WeberTHE WOLVES I had no trouble in finding it, although what formerly had been the lane dribbled away into a dark, gloomy thicket, over-grown with brambles and touch-me-not, making difficult, painful traversing. Regarding me as a transgressor, the vines sought to retard me: Virginia creeper tugged at my feet and at the once well-kept edges of the withering trail, spiked dwarf hawthorn menacingly reared its head. 1 inched on, noting that not even the faintest tinkling bell of a bird’s voice nor the crash of a frightened mammal broke upon the drowsy drone of insects, which accentuated the unrelieved sultriness of the afternoon. Here was a short stretch open to the heavy heat of the sleeping sun, a vernal morass, now baked hard, surrounded by a ring of yellowed, sere grasses, which crackled harsh and dry under my tired feet; there, an ancient elm, one of the survivors which sentinelled the lone approach to the house, reared its aloof, quiet greenery in lines of pure grace far above the choked mass below. There was a timeless calm over all, a serenity conceived of the forces of existence moving tirelessly, relentlessly in their age-old cycles of life, change and death that were and are and will be. She would have had it that the cheaper aspects of modern life should never intrude upon her domain and that all of hers should sink into the peaceful decay of eternity. Abruptly the ground rose to form a rounded ridge which overhung the glades on either side. I trudged up the incline with strange unreasoning misgivings, for mingled with my desire to be in the past again were the fear of it and the knowledge of my impotence to alter it. Mercifully sudden, the view was cast before my eyes; and I threw myself down to contemplate it. The house stood still, though the years had exacted a bitter toll. Its straight, severe lines, unrelieved now by any frieze or lightening touch, gave it a stern, uninviting visage —as though it had battled all its life against the elements and in its decline would not deign to beg their mercy. Certainly it had been worsted: the close leaden tegument had relaxed in some places, despaired in others to reveal a dour, forbidding blackened wood, which had petrified, not decayed in the inclement weather. It brought to mind the image of a hardy person who in adversity has been toughened, embittered, by what would crush a more common, delicate personality. There were gashes in the form of shattered windows, scars as blistered, barren parts of the sloping roof, open wounds as huge crevices in which one could see from without empty rooms and sterile passages and from within the remote, pastel sky. Rather than brood on its misfortunes, the house rose above them; it flung its head, high and proud, a veritable monarch of a house. Marred by peels of paint, which gave it a sullen crabbed appearance, was the erstwhile lawn: long thin, anaemic strands of grass which shivered amid the weeds and sighed wearily to the passing breeze. Hardly comforting. The garden was affluent with burdock, sorrel, and immature ragweed; but a few opulent wine hollyhocks had prospered in independence. Conveniently distant lay an exquisite, ethereal plantation in which the candid ephemeral eyes of chicory, mirroring the dreamy azure of the heavens, revelled in the cold white gossamer of Queen Anne's lace. There was still something of an apple orchard, and 1 wondered briefly if still the crocus quickened in the spring, and if the narcissus scattered its goblets of cream and fire. Idle thoughts! I mused, and ran my fingers gratefully through the grass. 1 turned and entered the house. Stripped of everything, it was outraged. Covering the floor, paper, wood, plaster, nails, glass in dirty heaps rubbed salt into the wound. Somehow there was something stark and needlessly brutal in the ruthless way it had been dismantled, like dismembering a body after death. Stiff and aching, I limped to the orchard and gazing at the gnarled old limbs that had known so much violence and storm, sucked at white, tender joints of w’oodland grass. Here, if anywhere, would she be! It was here I first met her, w'hen she was yet a bride, and the fiend of restlessness that later possessed her was partly drugged by the new life she was entering. Her small, slender bird-like figure darted eagerly through the trees and before a month had elapsed, it seemed that she. not John, had always lived there. A genuine love of nature w'as one of her most saving characteristics. Ardently she awaited the first snowdrop of spring and made long treks through the damp forests she had persuaded John to save for her. She even protected the foxes which preyed upon neighboring henhouses and forbade any shooting throughout her hundred acres. The drama of autumn she preferred to the majesty of winter, the gaiety of spring, and the profusion of summer. The wild beauty of the leaves after the first frost, the mad race to propagate before the end, the intangible element of grandeur in the general AQUINAS INSTITUTEconfusion of departure, the warm days of Indian Summer when the earth seemed to bask in the sun, the final gesture of defiant magnificence, each thrilled and delighted her. She always liked to watch the world dressed like a dying monarch. If she could have been content with just this, she might have found real happiness at last. But she was so many persons that no one phase of life could hold her for any time and her other selves grew surfeited almost immediately. Hence there was an incompleteness in her every occupation—what she wanted to do most was not the sum of her wishes—and a chronic restlessness flogged her mind ever on. She preferred tragedies and indeed perused the most morbid volumes. Such dispiriting literature curdled a naturally reflective spirit into a morose, pessimistic character. She played the piano well, preferred Wagner to Verdi and received a curious exhilaration from hearing the heaviest portunes of "Die Gotterdammerung”, which enervated me completely. The power, the immensity of complete cataclysm moved her beyond measure. Her frequent parties did not dissipate this uneasy atmosphere. One became instantly aware of a brooding, electric dissatisfaction. Like her gowns, her conversation was novel, graceful, exquisitely turned-out, and in the height of fashion. If she were well her eyes in the plain mobile face glowed with her words in some little pointed anecdote; if she were ill and nervous the orbs dilated and snapped, her mouth twitched as though it were itching to wound somebody and released a speech that burned and corroded a shield of ego and threw one naked and defenseless, to be vivisected before the amused listeners. It was always true—it was that fact that estranged her from most she met. It was also more neurosis than malevolence, I realized; the superficiality of many of those with whom she was thrown in contact irritated her to such an extent that she must attack them verbally to aid herself, to rid herself of the poison they brewed in her. She realized their silliness only too well, and as there was not an iota of sympathy and understanding between them, she felt free to discuss them if she wished. And her heart could cut diamonds, I swear. At such affairs she consumed an amazing amount of liquor, without any of the customary annoyances of inebriation, save that she talked almost without cessation. As the evening would advance, extravagances of expression often escaped her, and her limbs would tremble ever so slightly; she gathered herself desperately and drank more. About 58 THE ARETEdawn, her guests would find excuses to leave and still gay and charming, she would dismiss them, the tired wrinkled gown which clung limply to her setting off well the vibrant figure and the great dusky rings enhancing the brilliant beauty of her large dark eyes. Dissipation agreed with her, and although 1 found such evenings exhausting, I never missed one. She was the first woman I knew who smoked and one of the few who have done it unconsciously. She never strained at a cigarette, as if she were afraid she could not get the taste otherwise nor puffed awkwardly nor gazed about apprehensively. In fact, she never even asked permission to smoke. Like many who are addicted to cigarettes, she hated pipes to excess. Everything in moderation! as if she could. She would have taken opium, if she had had the opportunity to still that nagging demon. She became almost vicious after a year. But nothing, nothing could avail. Her mind was a wind of unrest. And the townspeople? to misunderstand is to distrust. That latent fear of anything alien which lies deep within us stirred in them as never before. And it wasn't long before her idiosyncrasies were common gossip. Matrons gasped at her manifest iniquities and strove to be invited to the scandalous parties. After a few-unhappy experiences she refused to make all further acquaintance and to keep out of such persons' ways as much as possible. To this end she surrendered her pew in church, for she was profoundly sickened by the stir occasioned by her weekly appearances: the intermission of careless Smalltalk; the stealthy, knowing, dirty glances; the intense scrutiny; the resuming of conversation, now whispered, guarded, satisfied and evil. Superficially this breakage reduced the scandal; but as a stagnant pool overgrown with rank rushes may be almost concealed, yet emits a stink that betrays its deadly presence, the gossip brooded poisonously over the countryside. "Did you hear the latest? She walks alone through the woods at night!" A smug tone. A vicious, triumphant smile. "And she burns incense, too. I think she's crazy.” "Probably wants to get the smell of liquor out of the house." A comfortable laugh. How fortunate to be so mediocre that one has no virtues nor vices! How happy, having pressed it smooth and sprinkled it w-ith holy water, to lock his life in the placed box of Convention! How secure to gain one's knowledge from the experiences of others! How magnificent to criticize the great and the brave! . . . AQUINAS INSTITUTEFor a time, indeed, things were better again, and she was moderately content with her books, music, and parties. John seemed happier too, and after a month I dared to hope that events would settle out comfortably. Yes- and in another month she was again so queer and bitter and showed such a strange attitude toward me that 1 absented myself for a few days, until a curt, sharply-worded note requested my presence one evening. It was one of her disagreeable days. John, who as usual was unwell, excused himself early. "Have you read 'Progress in the Dark'?" I remarked, of a then popular novel. She had, and disputed every point I made of it. The other guests, whom I knew only distantly, looked uncomfortable. Foolishly I appealed to them to substantiate my claims, and more foolishly still, they agreed with me. "I suppose,” she remarked scornfully, "you think it a wonderful creation?" To forego a scene, I yielded to her. But she continued most unsociable: flaring suddenly and giving one the sensation of emotion, repressed, violent. Nothing helped; a devil seemed to possess her that evening. Having criticized me, she castigated the young man and mocked the poor girl to her face. The former, hot and red, the latter, reduced to tears, left immediately, deeply incensed and offended; and 1, furious and disgusted because of the silly and cruel exhibition I had just witnessed, rushed after them. She caught me by the arm, as 1 was leaving. "Let me go," I cried passionately. "Wait a minute—let me explain," she pleaded. "Explain!" was my angry retort. She made no further protest at all, but sank weakly into a chair, her face contorted, her frame quivering. My hand rested on the knob: I was unwillingly moved. "Well?" I demanded coldly, turning toward her. During the hour that followed, I learned more of her than did anyone else in the world. She confided to me all of her—without reservation or regret. "If I can never know happiness. I can at least attempt pleasure. Why not try anything? Nothing can be worse than this.” "People are like wolves. You must run with the pack or they will destroy you." "You can't really like what you don't understand. You fear and hate it." 60 the arete"I am myself, and I can't help that. I know my character, my limitations too well I II always be myself; there is no escape, except the one 1 haven't tried yet.” And finally she said the worst of all, because it was so simple, so deliberate, so true: "There is no one like me in this world. I can never find true peace. With all my heart I envy other people and begrudge them their happiness." I pondered all manner of remedies, but none was suitable: the cure could come only from within herself and I guessed slightly that would never occur. When I saw her again, she was more affable but rather resentful. I don't believe she ever forgave me for being her confidante. Shortly I was called to New York on business, but had scarcely been there a fortnight when a telegram informed me that John was dead. It was so inconvenient, I considered fretfully. During my absence the most detestable rumors about us had been circulated by the same little clique she had termed "moral poison ivy.” Whether actually believing these garbled reports or depressed beyond measure at his constant ill-health, John shot himself one night at the height of festivities in his home. It was as direct as that. I was too late to attend the funeral, but I could sense the tenseness and the gloom. Her face was as hard, cold, and expressionless as a rock: friends apprised me, and she bore herself rigidly calm throughout. Only after the final scene, when she turned away, as the clods of earth clanked on the coffin like the knell of doom, did she change. A muttering arose, and as she surveyed the circle of faces about her, she did not see one which did not hold her guilty of the tragedy. The silent indictment seemed to breathe life into her once more. Her icy countenance melted away, as the fire of some new emotion heated her eyes to intensity, and she bestowed upon the mourners a terrible glance of acid, sneering hatred. It was the final gesture. She entered her car and drove away at frightful speed. They nor I ever received word of her again. That was her way—ruthless . . . Picking an apple, I suneyed it idly. It was small, hard, metallically red. It tasted flat and sour. Perhaps it too contained ail the festering unhappiness of thirty years. 61 AQUINAS INSTITUTEJOSEPH GILLIGAN Jin fWemoriam Death struck a severe blow to the members of the Senior Class when Joseph Gilligan was taken from our ranks early in December 1939. A quiet, curly-haired, affable Catholic gentleman, Joe was an active parishioner of St. Charles' Church of Greece, where he played outfield for the St. Charles' Alumni base ball team. Entering Aquinas in the fall of 1936, Joe attained to the honor roll as a member of the freshman home room 108. The grand-nephew of Monsignor Meehan, late head of St. Bernard's Seminary, Joseph Gilligan died of a rare disease which afflicted him long before his merciful death. Hundreds attended his funeral, the great majority from his school, where he had made many friends during the three short years we knew him. Joe will not be forgotten as the members of the graduating class march on the stage of Aquinas in their Commencement exercises; indeed, we know that he will be there with us in spirit as we sing our Alma Mater for the last time.

Then the basoons and saxes enter with a quiet, musical pattern. But wait! This composition sounds like j one of the famous works of Wagner. It seems incredible, but nevertheless the band is playing the "Overture to Rienzi," one of the most difficult of all overtures. This can't be the Aquinas high-school Senior Band, playing an opus like "Rienzi”—yet the maroon uniforms and printed programs prove that it must be true. But this is not amazing. for a great band naturally plays great music. It was in the school year of 1936-7 that Mr. Raymond Hasenauer and the members of the Aquinas Band decided that their organization should no longer be just another band, unheard of and unrecognized, but should become one of New York State's finest musical establishments, known and honored by everyone for its musical ability, the factor by which a band is judged. Realizing the tremendous task ahead, our able director inaugurated for the first time a Junior Band, so that the varsity ensemble would receive better trained, more experienced musicians in future years. Moreover, intonation, tone quality, musical technique, and musical interpretation were emphasized to the fullest degree. With this encouraging start, the band already received a "good" rating at the state contest in the spring of 1937. This was the incentive, the spark needed, for the band in the next year was a more musical, much finer organization than the students anticipated, even under the guidance of so capable a conductor as Mr. Hasenauer. Again participating in the state contest, the band received a superior rating, which clearly showed the progress of this undertaking. The last two years are merely a story of playing more difficult music, in a professional, rather than in an amateurish manner. This, the principal task, has practically been the prime purpose of improving the band to a state of comparative perfection, a mission which has truly been accomplished this year. The performances of the band at the annual spring contest, the spring concert, the special concert, and the apple blossom festival have surely attested this statement. Success has descended upon us, but it is not a success which is built on a lucky break, excessive financial support, or the like. Rather, this success is entirely due to the tireless efforts of Mr. Hasenauer and all of its members, through long rehearsals, sectional instrumental instruction, and intense musical study, the only means by which any musical organization can hope to obtain recognition. There is no short cut to musical perfection, and the success of the Aquinas Senior Band is no exception. Thus the work of this year's band nears completion, an ensemble which attained musical honor the hard way, the only way, and played great music, a feat of which only a great band is capable. 88 THE ARETELITTLE SYMPHONY THERE reposes within the corridors of our humble Alma Mater a musical organization which receives far insufficient acknowledgment. Of course, now that it is brought to mind, we immediately identify that organization as our ' Little Symphony,” or senior orchestra, apparently unknown to many students of Aquinas. Possibly this lack of recognition is due to the fact that the orchestra doesn't sound as full or musical as our band, or perhaps the band publicity is better fostered by their performances at the football games, and special concert. The fact remains, however, that the orchestra should receive more merit than it obtains at present. It must be remembered that orchestral music is vastly harder than band music, since the chief instruments of the orchestra are the strings, such as violins, cellos, violas, and basses, said by many to be the most difficult of all musical instruments to play. Moreover, the music which the orchestra plays is heavier, not as appealing to most people as the lighter, more melodic music rendered by the band. This fact makes it much more intricate for most people to obtain the full musical value created by the orchestra. Regardless of these facts, however, we should remember that our orchestra labors diligently, and tirelessly, plays difficult music and tries to please all. Certainly, the orchestra deserves all the praise we can give, both to its members and to its director.

Here, however, we shall confine ourselves to a few brief remarks on our glee club, an organization worthy of our honor and pride. A few years ago, the glee club was comparatively veiled in darkness, receiving little attention from the students or public, but when the varsity band inaugurated its program for national honors, the glee club resolved to compete with the band for equal recognition. Immediately the vocal group was enlarged to contain over one hundred voices, singing complete four part harmony. The rest of the music department, during this time, was also laboring diligently, and apparently forgot the threat of the vocal ensemble. So it was much to the astonishment of the students and the school musicians alike when the participation of the glee club in the state contest for the first time was announced. The men of harmony had now received the opportunity to fulfil their threat of equality to the other musical aggregations—but could they successfully carry out this task ? The results tell the story. The glee club sang exceptionally well and certainly showed that Aquinas has vocal, as well as instrumental talent. The vocal group received a superior rating—the finest state recognition possible—a rating of which Aquinas and the music department can well be proud. Yes, the glee club is now equal in ability to the band. May it continue under the direction of Mr. Hasenauer to march forward in continued success during the years to come. THE 98 WINGS OVER EUROPE THE first play of the school year of 1939-’40 was "Wings Over Europe" by Robert Nichols and Maurice Browne. Under the direction of Mr. Edwin J. Dolan, the Dramatic Club presented a brilliant performance of this serious and scientific play. The story of the play deals with the events in the life of a youthful scientist, Francis Light foot, played by Rudolph Passero. By discovering a formula by which he can control the atom, harnessing its boundless energy and releasing mankind from his slavery to matter, Francis Lightfoot hopes to direct his discovery to the everlasting glory of mankind. Because he is the nephew of the Prime Minister of Britain, played by John Roberts, he seeks Britain's aid rather than that of the League of Nations and brings his propositions to the British Cabinet. His statement of the discovery is simple, and appeals to the Secretary of State of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Evelyn Arthur, a man of high intelligence, which part was in the safe hands of Richard Nowak. However, the other members of the cabinet refuse to accept his proposition with the result that the young scientist threatens to wipe out the entire universe with his new' discovery. Realizing that they have but a few hours to live unless they agree entirely with Lightfoot, the members of the cabinet, played by Emmet O'Neill, Jack Crowley, Richard Parker, Bernie Fawkes, Richard Nowak, Martin Brophy, Emmet Gaughn, Francis Sullivan, Eugene Shannon, William Whitney, William Hubble and Frank Vogt, are perplexed at their situation, until the Secretary of War determines to kill the scientist and destroy his discovery. Leading up to an exciting climax, the play ends with the death of Lightfoot and the destruction of his secret. Minor parts were played by Robert Biel, David Tormey, William Hegle, Jack Syracuse and Jack Culhane. Cooperation of the stage crew and of the Aquinas Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Mr. Raymond Hasenauer, were essential for the success of "Wings Over Europe.” too THE ARETETHE DRAMATIC CLUB Of THE AQUINAS INSTITUTE OF ROCHESTER Presents "WINGS OVER EUROPE” By Robert Nic hols and Maurice Browne Under Direction of Mr. Edwin J. Dolan, M.A. AQUINAS INSTITUTE 101SENIORS PRESENT ANNUAL CLASS PLAY DURING our four years at Aquinas, we of the class of 1940 have had an excellent opportunity of studying the various phases of dramatics under the able direction of Mr. E. J. Dolan, our faculty advisor. As our final effort, we presented for our Senior Play "The First Year” by Frank Craven. This play may be considered a sequel to one of our earlier productions: "Tommy." The setting for "The First Year” is the home of Mr. Fred Livingston in Reading, Pennsylvania. Grace Livingston, his daughter, played by George Wickes, is in a dilemma because she has two suitors for marriage. One, Dick Loring, portrayed by Richard Kautz, is an engineer with a secure position. The other, played by William Hubble, is Tommy Tucker, a shy, home town boy who has a small real estate business and is prospering modestly. After a quarrel with Dick, Grace accepts the shy proposal of Tommy. It was through the advice of Grace's uncle. Dr. Anderson, that Tommy proposed to Grace at such an opportune time. The young couple are married and embark on the first year of wedded life. The first year of marriage is usually the hardest for most couples, and Tommy and Grace prove to be no exception. The newly-weds have moved to Missouri, and it is there that the second scene takes place. The pair break up after a dinner at which Tommy entertains a prospective customer, Mr. Barstow, who is accompanied by his wife. Grace goes home to her mother and Dick Loring comes back into her life. However, Dick again withdraws when he and Tommy have a fight. It is Dr. Anderson who patches up the marriage. John Roberts played Dr. Anderson, and Norbert Robach and Martin Brophy also added to their laurels in the roles of Mrs. and Mr. Livingston. Richard Nowak and Don Jazak played Mr. and Mrs. Barstow, and the role of Hattie, the half-witted maid, was excellently played by Emmet O’Neill. The Senior class should be congratulated on such a noteworthy presentation, which will be remembered by future classes as their crowning achievement. As in past years, the senior play has marked the apex for dramatic presentations, and this senior play is no exception. We are indebted to Mr. Dolan and the stage crew, who were vastly important for the successful staging of "The First Year." 102 THE ARETE"THE FIRST YEAR" A Comic Tragedy of Married Life by Frank Craven The Cast Fred Livingston .

THE ARETE 104DRAMA, THEN AND NOW THE drama has always played a major part in the extra-curricular activities of Aquinas. As in past years, the class of 1940 has presented its share of successes, long to be remembered for their versatility; presenting comedy and tragedy, levity and seriousness. The calibre of the plays which have been presented on the Aquinas stage has steadily improved for the past several years. If we review the presentations of this and former years, this fact will be more evident. In the school year of 1936-'37, quite a heavy program was presented which included "The Good Fellow," "Laburnum Grove" and the second annual presentation of the Lenten Flay, " As It was in the Beginning.” Noteworthy among the performers of that year were Ben Duffy, Bob Keefe and Ed Keenan. In 1937-'38 the Dramatic Club presented a definitely lighter schedule consisting of "Abie's Irish Rose," "Tommy" and the Lenten Play. The actors remembered for their sterling performances in these plays were Joseph Conway, Robert Edelman and Martin Moll. "Yellow Jack" and "Room Service" served to make the year of 1938-'39 one of the most successful in Aquinas Dramatics. "Yellow' Jack" with its radical change in stage setting, and the lavish comedy of "Room Service” brought into prominence such thes-pians as Dave Curtin, Cliff Whitcomb, Bob Napier and Dean Coffey. The 1939-‘40 season distinguished itself by the successful production of "Wings Over Europe" and "The First Year." The school play "Wings Over Europe" is indeed a tribute to our masterful director Mr. E. J. Dolan and to the versatility of the Aquinas dramaticians. No other play of this type has ever been attempted on the Aquinas stage, but in spite of this, "Wings Over Europe" was well received. The Senior Play, "The First Year”, has proven to be one of the most successful comedies ever presented at Aquinas by any class. This play is a sequel to "Tommy", presented in 1938. The Dramatic Club of this year has brought into prominence many men who have won for themselves a permanent place in the ranks of former Aquinas thespians. Among these are John Roberts, Richard Nowak, William Hubble and Richard Kautz. Others who have given commendable performances in past plays are John Girvin, Fred Kelly, John Crowley, George Wickes, Martin Brophy and Norbert Robach. The class of 1940 is proud of the plays it has produced and of the men who took part in them under the excellent direction of Mr. Dolan. Much of our success is due to the accomplishments of the indispensable stage crew and to Mr. Hasenauer with the Aquinas Band and Orchestra, who together have contributed so much to make this year in Dramatics one of the most memorable in the history of Aquinas. 105 AQUINAS INSTITUTEAQUINAS MISSION REVIEW, 1939-1940 IN co-operation with the Catholic Students' Mission Crusade, the Aquinas Mission Unit now completes a year's program of prayer, study and sacrifice. We must know the missions before we can help them. With this purpose in mind, four Round Tables under the leadership of Martin Brophy, John Davis, Thomas Craig and John Tracy, were established to study mission life at home and abroad in conjunction with the outline in the Shield Magazine. Two of these groups embraced units from Nazareth Academy and from Nazareth College. As might be expected, the students ardently discussed divers controversial topics; the vivid speech and the heated debate were of the greatest benefit to growing minds. Brophy and Tracy concentrated on foreign missions; Craig instituted an investigation of home missions; and Davis launched a thorough program on pagan philosophies. It was an Aquinas staff Martin Brophy, Edward Weber and Warren Page—that conducted eight inter-unit "So You Know The Shield" programs much to the enthusiasm, stimulation and entertainment of mission devotees from this and other institutions Statistics, barren facts, cold and lackluster reports were excluded; on the contrary, it inculcated a richer, cultural note of general information infinitely more romantic, appeal-■ng and useful to the listeners. Novelty acts such as snake-charming, devil-dancing, yogi, necromancy, phantasmagoria and native ceremonials were calculated to attract the attention and hold the interest of the student audience. The lighter sentiment was furthered by the devotion of a generous space to singing, poetry and dramatics. This unique program received favorable notice from the "Shield”, national mission magazine of the C. S. M. C. Every homeroom held monthly meetings at which students spoke on subjects related to the missions; not a few rooms had weekly meetings. But all these were climaxed by several mission assemblies, when the entire student body was lectured by distinctive and sometimes even exotic speakers, such as the Archbishop of Madras, India. Laudable was the effort of the Mission Unit in sponsoring Jack Williams, a Junior, in public speaking contests; worthwhile too—he received first prize as the best Catholic orator in Western New York State, when using the topic, "Heywood Broun’s Conversion as an Instance of God's Goodness to the Church". 106 THE ARETEThe school mission publication, The Aquinader", was a splendid enterprise this year, characterized by power, color, intelligence and initiative. Under the able leadership of George Wickes, Editor, and staffed by Donald Eckl, Joe De Meis, Warren Page, Bill Springer, Dave Squires, Charles Summers, Edward Weber and Leo Wesley, the Aquinader forged rapidly to the front of the journalistic field. Emphasis was placed on a breezy, vigorous style; each issue contained C. S. M. C. news, editorials, results of various drives, humor, personal items, chatter, poems, songs—in short, the paper was replete with every imaginable item, each with a Crusade slant. The "Shield" characterized "The Aquinader" as modern, many-sided, and ardently missionary. Prayer formed a prominent and a necessary part in the Crusade. Father Haffey initiated a system of prayer cards, whereby each student reported his voluntary spiritual offerings for each month. As an example, during February, a total of 3394 Holy Communions, 3609 Masses, 9642 visits, 7965 acts of mortification, and 1777 hours of study were preferred for the Pope's intention. Needless to say, prayers began and concluded all undertakings, such as Round Table gatherings and "So You Think You Know The Shield" programs. The signal generosity of the students has made all phases of mission endeavor pos-sible. The students have given not only their money in collections, but have bestowed their time as well for paper drives, sale of Christmas cards, and other such praiseworthy efforts which have reaped the rich harvest of more than half the mission income for the year. Some have kindly consented to give their all in the Mission Bouts, staged in the spring, to determine school champions; others have donated their services to entertainment hours, held after school, which were well attended both by students from Aquinas and also by members of the fair sex from other schools. The Mission Dance is another highlight of the year. But as ever, the most profitable single day was the versatile Mission Day of late May. a conclave combining all the best features of a carnival—the gaiety and humor with none of the mercenary sordidness and cheap commercialism, a hobby show at which the several clubs compete for the best exhibit and individuals display their accomplishments; a varsity show which provides pleasing diversion (singing, music, and sparkling comedy skits) ; and an outdoor spectacle of track meets, band playing, games of chance, and refreshment centers. By means of the revenue which these activities bring in, our school maintains two Maryknoll priests and one sister in China, one seminarian and two catechists in India, and ten instructors at the school of the sisters AQUINAS INSTITUTEof Mercy in the West Indies; above this, the school will have over three thousand dollars to distribute to missionaries in Africa, India, China, Korea, the Arctic area, the South Seas, and all such similar lands calling for the true religion. Thus the mission year of 1939-’40 at Acjuinas has been a most successful and distinguished one, different, yet orthodox, serious, yet pleasant. In general we wish to thank the students and faculty of the school who have co-operated so nobly with us in this venture, and in particular Father Haffey. our able director; the mission leaders Bob Bauer, Henry Lally, Paul Keenan, Dick Loebs, Walter Principe, James Doyle, Charles Maggio, William Cannan, George Schiller and Bill Whitney; Edward Weber, General Secretary; and all other members of the Mission Unit, who have made our final year at Aquinas our best tribute, our happiest memory.

THE ARETE 110EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES WE AT Acjuinas ought to be proud of the fine achievements we have made here in the way of extra-curricular activities. Ours is one of the leading schools in the promotion and carrying out of such activities with over half the student body engaged in one form or another of club or sport. And it is the club that is what may be termed the social backbone of the school. For it is that which brings the students of a school together after school hours, thus instilling in them a common bond which they might not have otherwise. They also sene to bring the student and teacher together, thus resulting in a mutual interest between the two. We are most fortunate in having here so many and diversified organizations for all kinds of tastes and likes. For those who have a particular liking for languages there are the German, French, Italian and Latin Clubs which serve to bring the student into closer and more intimate contact with the customs and modes of living represented by the people whose tongue they study. For the budding writer and future journalist we have the newly organized Press Club which has been a great help in showing the students the whys and wherefores of newspaper work. And of course there is the Maroon and White about which too much cannot be said. Let it suffice to say that in our school paper we have something to be justly proud of. For the intellectuals there is the Catholic Literature Club; for the scientifically inclined the Angelo Secchi Club and for the Kodak fans the Camera Club. The Stamp Club has always been a favorite as well as the Math Club. The Dramatic Club has always served to bring to the students the maximum of enjoyment in their annual presentations. They have made a name for themselves, and, judging by their work this year, they have lived up to it in the traditional manner. This year we were fortunate in instituting two new Clubs which have gone over very well. These are the popular Aviation Club and the Rod and Gun Club, which serve to fill out a varied and extensive list. The Bowling Club has always been a perennial favorite and under the able supervision of Father Hastings has flourished for many a year. Father HafTey is to be commended for his Mission Unit which has done so admirably this year and all past years. These are our Clubs, giving the students a chance to develop whatever talent they might have in some particular field and at the same time providing enjoyment for all those who participate in one way or another. They place Aquinas on top for having such fine student organizations, and we should endeavor to see that she remains there. lit AQUINAS INSTITUTETHE DRAMATIC CLUB Faculty Advisor—Mr. Edwin Dolan President—John Roberts Secretary—John Callahan Vice-President—John Crowley Treasurer—Martin Brophy THE AVIATION CLUB Faculty Advisor—The Reverend J.

Indeed such protection was needed. With the approval of the faculty, the active senior-class officers instituted the patrol which operated on the same basis as those of other high schools. Although divided into two alternating groups the patrol functioned well. The entire student-body sincerely thanks the Safety Patrol for its efforts—especially during those disagreeable days. Its victimless record speaks for itself. It certainly has begun something worthwhile for the underclassmen to continue. THE AQUINAS SAFETY PATROL Captain—Harold Toai. Assist.

Our course is dim, the ways of life obscure, And oft their paths lead but to black despair. To plot the course that brings one clean and pure To Heaven's port, to rest from life’s blows there. Is not the lightest of God’s tasks, but one Wherein the trying is the part that counts. He who steers by Truth's bright shining sun Will find his heart all danger safe surmounts. His boat will pass the sharpest rocks that lie Between the port of class days, strong, secure, Up to that door which all men one day try To find it locked, or enter safe and sure. THE ARETERAYMOND BREWER (1913'193 9) Early in this school year, death snatched from our midst Raymond Brewer, a well-liked and extremely popular lad. Ray was a Sophomore and a member of St. Ambrose Parish. As he was a fine student, popular both with teachers and fellow classmates, his tragic going means to his numberless friends the loss of his jovial laughter and pleasant disposition as well as of his physical presence. Indeed the faculty and student-body alike mourn his passing. Then, too, Ray was the ideal Catholic student ever religious, never faltering in his duties and obligations. Finally, Ray overflowed wdth a very enthusiastic love of sports, witness his presence and cheering at all the school's games. Indeed, to those who knew Ray, it is no small wonder why so fine a boy should be called to his Maker so early in life. Requiescat in pace! AQUINAS INSTITUTE 131GRADUATE DIRECTORY Name Frank B.

The Arete has long come to stand for the summation of the senior year, its class and their achievements. It is the lasting tribute to their initiative, ability and ideals. It is the four year record of a class that can be proud of itself. Therefore we wish to thank Father Meyer for his patient and excellent supervision of a difficult task . . . Mr. Jankowiak, Editor-in-Chief, who has labored hard and successfully to produce a fine yearbook . . . Mr. Parker, literary editor, for his invaluable aid as proofreader . . . Mr. Roberts, Mr. Loebs, and Mr. Tracy of the Business Board for doing a hard job well . . . Mr. Young. Mr. Heindl. and Mr. Rakowski for their time devoted so unselfishly . . . Every member of the Board for their fine work . . . And those students whose names ate starred for their cooperation and loyal support ■ THE ARETE H6HUMORHUMOR SECTION!!! April 30, 1940 Dear Editor of Arete: I received your notice of March 15 which stated that the time was drawing near. In more simple language, 'Dead Line". Why are all editors the same? If you don't make the "dead line" you end up in the ' bread line” (that's crumby but so is the dough you pay me for it). The problem is what style to use. I shall present to you samples of the various ideas. You and your staff vote on that type which you like best. I'll pick the good one from those you discard. Style I (With apologies to Bob Hope) Hello folks! I was walking down the main hall the other nite and I met a fellow who reminded me of Pinocchio. He knows all (if you didn't get it read it again) . . . That was the nite of the school concert. You know "corn" the way they played it before swing was popular . . . People thought the Glee Club had a hang over when it was announced they'd sing "Open Our Eyes” . . . Harry Bayer wasn't in good hearing that nite. Someone in the front row was talking about the Graf Spec scuttle. He thought Mr. Hasenauer said Back Bay Shuffle. I didn't think it was funny either; till he played it . . . The girls all got a kick out of Johnny Knapp’s sugary chatter. I call it Knapp Sap ... I had a good seat, right behind John Roberts. John's the boy with the voice that made the maroon letters on the brass drum turn green with envy. After I got that seat I felt terrible. It made it easier though when the band sympathized with me I had a date too. One of those girls that pronounced "again” as if it were a rise in the stock market. After 1 introduced her to Bob VanEpps, she said, "You're the one they named the famous train after.” She was thinking of the Commodore Vanderbilt and I was trying to think where I left my gun. But I didn't say anything. She had the street car passes . . . Later they played "The Blue Danube Waltz". When I got out in the aisle and did the Rumba everyone was hot under the collar. My foot was kind of hot too ... In closing I want to say that it was a novel idea to have the Glee Club gargle back stage while the band was playing. Only bad thing was Shep Fields nearly sued the school.Style II Theme Songs and the Awards of the Year (With apologies only to those who reaJ it) 1.

AQUINAS INSTITUTE 139Style III The only states that have never had a recorded lynching are Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Maine and Vermont. But that’s eay to figure out. The Republicans need the votes. We'd be a cad to leave out the one Jack Hennessy told us. "A drip is a drool going steady." Old but choice . . . Also the sign Bill Otis drew for us, "Elite Paving Company. All the best road building materials. Cement, crushed stone, if you don’t see what you want asphalt'. We remember too that Sandy once said, "The man that's ticklish gets a big laugh out of a bed of roses.” . . . The person who related this asked us not to use his name. The initials are A. E. "Termite’s nightmare: I Dreamt I Dwelt In Marble Halls”. Two Americans were standing on the crater of a large volcano. One turned to the other and said, "That looks hot as hell!" An Englishman standing nearby overheard this remark and thought to himself, "Gad, these Americans have been everywhere”. There it is. Now I hope when I make the "dead line” it's not the kind you hang from. This situation reminds me of one of my old sayings, "The man that has a mosquito bite on his back can't quite put his finger on itch". You'll have to scratch around to get that one. And, Mr. Editor, was that Sally .Heidt I saw you out with the other night? Don’t shake me off by saying it was Vamilda Heidt either. Or are you just a big stiff. But don't let my ribs get you. They're not so hot. If they were, we could say it was a rib roast (wasn't much meat to that one). Here's hoping that you think I'm as good as mother does. Yours truly, Sandy Mac (David T.

THE ARETE 142ROCRN VOL. 3 JUNE 1940 NO. 3 AQUINAS SPORTS! THE HIGHEST CALIBER PLAYED! DON HASSET Reports The remark is common in collegiate coaching circles: “He's building character this year.” Which is just another way of saying that some unfortunate coach, not blessed with the material to build a winning team, is trying to give his athletic pupils some benefit from the games they play as a substitute for lack of victories. Now there’s nothing wrong with that, and there’s nothing wrong with the remark per se. But it’s the cynical tone, usually, and the emphasis on “this year” which reflects on the speaker — and the coach. As a matter of fact, 1 know a couple of coaches who built character this school year. A couple of coaches, however, who have been building character every year they’ve been in Aquinas. And their achievements in that line put a very ridiculous aspect on any sneering critics who imply that sports coaching — specifically in football—caters to character only when victory becomes impossible. Johnny Sullivan and Mort Leary have had their share of winning and losing teams at Aquinas Institute — but win, lose or draw, they’ve always made the boys who have played under them better men for association with them. I’ve seen Sullivan and Leary with teams that were undefeated, and I’ve seen them with teams that were lucky to win half of their games. But the squads which finished with a clean slate were made to adhere just as much to principles of sportsmanship and clean play as the squads which were unable to muster a consistent winning combination. And the fact would seem apparent that a team which is “shoved around” for several Saturdays needs more fortitude and self-restraint to play the game fair than one which breezes to victories with superior ability. It doesn’t seem ten years since Johnny and Mort sent their first football team out to play — and lose — a single game against Albion. They probably recall it ruefully. But in that decade they’ve built great teams. You might put “teams” in bold-face, Mister Print- er, because that clinches the argument; you don’t build teams without building character, too. Aquinas’ coaching and Aquinas’ players have had the benefit of superior equipment, you say? The Maroon and White consistently has had more than a thousand boys from which to pick and choose, you insist? There’s no denial. But that equipment and that wealth of material has been used to build something more than a fine source of athletic revenue. It has been used for its own good, to enhance its own value, to develop a code of sports ethics respected wherever the school is known. I’ve watched Aquinas football closely for ten years and I know there has been no stinting. From his helmet to his shoes, whether it be in game or practice scrimmage, every player is protected with the best equipment money can buy. And he’s not protected merely to the point where concrete physical safeguards leave off; he’s protected by proper training and by wise foresight of experienced instructors. Let’s get down to cases. The team of 1939—on paper, on the basis of score results—had the poorest record of any Aquinas football combination. That’s not to its discredit nor its coaches’. It simply lacked the physical qualifications to cope with out-of-class opponents it was forced to meet. It had no great individual star. Even among the backs—the glory-grabbers!—it was a different name that held the spotlight every week. And it was a team; its members played together to the best of their ability to gain a common end. It knew', too, the value of training, for its members, first — or fifthstring, w'ere physically fit, well grounded in fundamentals. The still-perfect record of “no major injuries” w'hich it extended speaks eloquently for Sullivan-Leary coaching; is remarkable in view of Aquinas’ winning record, the caliber of opponents it meets and the reputation its players have made for the spirit which marks their football. In ten years Aquinas football has developed no player who has attained outstanding collegiate athletic success or national prominence. But the won-and-lost record shows a favorable balance, bespeaking all-important teamw'ork and a program planned for the good of many rather than a few; Aquinas’ football reputation is one of fair play and clean sportsmanship. All these indicate intelligent coaching, intelligent material, and intelligent planning and support by a wise administration. Ol R LEADERS Left to Right: MARTY CALLAHAN. MORT LEARY. JOHNNY SULLIVAN FATHER SHEEHAN.2 THE ROCKNE 1 9 3 9 PIGSKIN REVIEW The 19.39 edition of the Aquinas’ football machine opened their season against Holy Family of Auburn and proved themselves better mudders by subduing their opponents to the tune of 13-0. After a scoreless first half, the running of Landry, Peartree and O’Neill on the wet, slippery turf provided many thrills for the large turnout of fans. Two long marches ended in touchdowns for the Irish and a third was cut short by the final j whistle. The Maroon-clad gridders j completely outgained their oppo- i nents in every department and j showed a powerful attack in their opening game. The following week Aquinas met j the first of its college opponents in Canisius Frosh. The bigger, heavier freshmen team rolled to a touchdown in the first few minutes of play and to another in the third quarter while Aquinas was unable to penetrate touchdown territory. Twice the Irish travelled inside the visitor’s ten yard line, once by virtue of Peartree’s sparkling thirty-five yard sprint, but each I BOB BAUER—Bob, the “brains” us through h his timely f the Frosh d to budge, must be be-line which cks in check 1 score read 0. |Aquinas fell ►bait Fresh -of 19-2.

Again the Aquinas pig-skinners allowed their opponents a touchdown in the first few minutes but from then on functioned powerfully by land and air to completely outplay their foes.

CHARLES MAGGIO — Chuck, due to his previous experience and rugged defense work, proved himself to be the backbone of the Aquinas line. In the next game the Aquinas team was routed by a powerful, brown-shirted, freshman aggrega-tion from St. Bonaventure. The superiority of the visiting team was evident when they marched for three touchdowns after a scoreless first quarter. Although the gallant Maroon line outcharged the heavier, slower line of the frosh time after time, the fleet Indian backs were too much for them. Bonaventure lad at the end of the game with the score 19-0. RAH! RAH! RAH! SULLIVAN! Barely recovered from the physical beating suffered at the hands of Bonaventure, Aquinas met a fine, undefeated and unscored on St. Joe’s team from Buffalo in the objective game of the season. Aquinas, by virtue of Landry’s fine running, drew first blood in a smashing, bruising game, when Moose Landry covered sixty-six yards to score in two consecutive plays. However, St. Joe’s fine backs were not to be denied. They scored in the last quarter after the Irish gridders had made two courageous goal-line stands. Both teams failed to convert and thus the 1939 season ended with a 6-6 tie. BILL CANNON — Bill's high-class work at the pivot position and his ability to back up the line made him a valuable team man.4 THE ROCKNE March on to vic’try, Carry on thru thick and thin, Fight as one and one for all I Aquinas must win. March down the field boys, Never let your spirits dim. Fight, Fight, Fight, for dear Aquinas | Till we win. Rah. RAY MAG INN — Ray was undoubtedly one of the hardest-charging and most vicious tacklers ever to don an Aquinas uniform. Aquinas Maroon, Aquinas White, Aquinas Irish, Fight, Fight, Fight. JOE PEARTREE — Diminutive Joe, with his open field running JOHN WOLCOTT — One of the biggest men on the squad, “Ox" carried a lot of authority when checking our opponents' attack. ED CONSALVI — Ed's ruggedness and determination made up for his lack of weight and he never failed to turn in a creditable performance. DAN SASSONE — One of the heaviest men on the squad, “Sass’’ was unusually fast and gained many yards with his bull-lke thrusts. Hit ’em high Hit ’em low Hit ’em Aquinas Let’s Go! VINCENT RYAN—One of the fastest halfbacks on the squad, Vince proved himself very efficient in the open field. JAMES McGOWAN — Jim, a tall, lanky end provided the backs with fine blocking and proved himself a rock on the defense. ED FULLER — Big, handsome I Ed, one of our rugged tackles, never failed to come through in the pinches.The gun sounded — and one of the greatest teams in Aquinas history trotted off the floor of Holy Family gymnasium after having notched their eleventh win in seventeen starts. A smooth-working regular quint, which outscored most of its predecessors, and a very able reserve combination helped round out a very successful season. A glance at the record shows that only three teams were able to subdue the lighting Irish, — Niagara Frosh, Canisius High School and St. Joe’s of Buffalo; but each of these teams defeated us twice. The climax of the season came in our contest with our traditional rival Niagara Frosh, for it was in this game that the team’s co-ordination and aggression were at their best. Although the final gun found us on the losing side by five points, we looked upon it as a moral victory. Holding a more ex- j perienced team to that score saw our ambitions realized, and the rest of the season—though interesting—was an anti-climax. Another feather in our caps was the number of games we won on our opponents courts. Some of the most thrilling of these were the Sodus, Canisius and Albion games. This record would not be complete without our mentioning our game with Batavia on the Dewey Avenue Court. A close score through the game was thrilling to the large crowd that witnessed this battle. When the smoke cleared away the scoreboard flaunted the sweet fact that Aquinas had gained a victory by two points. A brief word concerning the individual players whose ablity made a successful season possible: John Poinan at center climaxed his successful three-year varsity career by copping high scoring laurels for the 39-’40 campaign. His all-round ability proved the glue that held the Aquinas team to the consolidated fighting unit that it was. Runner-up for high individual scoring leadership for the past two seasons was Henry Lally, the Maroon’s capable guard, who was a contributing factor to the successful season. Hank’s running | mate, Chuck Maggio, was perhaps the steadiest and best defensive player. Mort Leary has coached in several seasons. Up in front on the all-veteran quint we had Johnny Baynes and Bill Maher. John’s height and ability under the bang-boards coupled with his passing genius made him a serious threat to each of our opponents. Bill Maher, an excellent team man, handled the other forward post. A constant threat to the opposition. Bill’s handy baskets gave our games a lasting thrill, and were an ever-ready source of excitement to the fans. THE AQUINAS RESERVES THE AQUINAS VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM6 THE ROCKNE ED PASKUS — Ed, belying his small stature, proved himself an outstanding tackle mainly because of his fighting nature and determination. The reserve team of the past season dropped only two decisions, both of which were by exceedingly close margins. This should indicate that there is a host of material at hand for next year’s basketeers, and that there should be stiff competition for the regular berths in the ’40 ’41 aggregation. THE ROD GUN CLUB The Rod and Gun Club, a neoteric organization at Aquinas, has proven its value by prodigious accomplishments. With the extensive support of the students it has attempted to explore and unveil the values of both field and stream to ELMER NACCA “Irish,” a vicious blocker and tackier, always won the opposition's admiration because of his keen competitive nature. Other Seniors of the varsity were Red Lambert, Jack Cameron, Earl George, Louis Paris, Harold Toomey and Joe Peartree. Although they were not always in the starting line, these men participated in each game, and whenever they were summoned for action gave a creditable performance. Nally, Culhane and Wes McMahon, the Juniors on the squad, give Mort Leary a fine nucleus for next year’s team. Nally has the best shooting eye on the entire squad, and he is a deceptive passer. Neil Culhane’s height and aggressiveness aided this year’s team, and will be a great asset to Mr. Leary next winter. Wesley McMahon is strictly a defensive player and cares little for the glory of scoring points. Next year’s team will have a goldmine in a steady player such as McMahon. all—a praiseworthy venture. The club was fortunate to have Joe Darbv, an experienced snorts-man, act as president. Harold Toomey, an all-around athlete was vice-president, and John Feerick treasurer. Although divided into three sections—the rod division, led bv Henry Jankowiak, a seasoned angler. and the skeet and rifle teams headed bv George Kell man. an expert marksman, and Howard McGee respectively, the organization functioned without friction. With Mr. Johnson, C.S.B., as faculty advisor, the club was under the influence of an ardent sportsman. The main objectives were the advancement of conservation and education in the problems of wildlife. Thus much was learned concerning the use and handling of firearms and our piscatorial problems.

Roy Foos, Leo Schneider, Dick Miller, Jerry Wuest and Bill Bira-cree, was chosen. The team was highly successful, winning eight games from such teams as R. B. I.. Kdison Tech and Albion. Only one defeat was suffered, inflicted by the potent Albion five. Competition in the League was stiff throughout the season, six teams finally sharing in the seventy-five dollars accumulated from the weekly collections. Top honors in Class “A” went to Ray Foos and Jerry Wuest. Chuck Tschiderer held number one spot in Class “B”, BOWLING A group of ninety Aquinas students invaded the Ridge Bowling Hall on September twenty-seventh, and, a few minutes later, to the accompaniment of crashing pins and the gleeful cries of the youthful pinpickers, the seventh Aquinas Bowling League started the 1939-’40 season. On the showing made in the following two weeks the bowlers were placed in three classes according to their respective averages and eighteen teams were formed. These eighteen teams played each other twice throughout the course of the season, and both keen rivalry and good sportsmanship were always in the fore. During the course of the season an Aqui- j nas Bowling Team, consisting of HAROLD TOOMEY — Harry's steady defensive play coupled with his unusual speed and stamina proved to be very valuable to our line. FRED BOWER—Fritz, a smart signal caller and a fine defensive player was also a threat because of his passing ability. closely followed by Jack Heagney. Jim Perry and Oscar Bain ranked one and two respectively in Class “C”. First place in the league had been taken over early in the season by the team, captained by Ray Foos, its members proving their quality by refusing to relinquish this position once they had attained it. The dreaded day, March twenty-fifth, the final bowling day, came entirely too soon, for many happy hours had been spent in Ridge Bowling Hall under the able guidance of the Reverend Leo E. Hastings, Faculty Advisor to the Aquinas Bowling League. In retrospection many a senior will find happy memories of this establishment while the underclassmen have a joyous future ahead, gayly striking the maples in the 1940-’41 season.

Nelson ZulaufTHE ROCKNE AQUINAS BOWLING TEAM Front Row. JERRY WUEST, BILL BIRACREE Rack Row: DICK MILLER, LEO SCHNEIDER, RAY FOOS THE BOWLING TEAM It was not until the fall of 1939 that varsity bowling was recognized as a pail of the athletic program at Aquinas. The squad was composed of Dick Miller, Roy Foos, Leo Schneider, Bill Biracree and Jerry Wuest. Consistency and experience made the team a contender for the city junior championship, which it later won from Edison Tech. The five-man squad, coached by the versatile Father Leo Hastings, opened its season successfully by overcoming a strong team from the St. Boniface Club. Decisive defeats of St. Andrews and the R B.I. followed. In a challenge match with the Albion High quintet the team suffered their first and only defeat by the margin of a few pins. However, in a return contest later in the season, Aquinas squared the account, outscoring their opponents by over 500 pins. Aquinas kegglers also defeated the St. Boniface Club in a return match and just managed to cop the contest by coming from behind in the last few games. In their last official match of the season the squad vanquished the strong East Side Team by gaining an early lead and refusing to give it up all during the contest. The feature of the season was the 2775 total which the team amassed against the Reynolds Hall Bowling Club. Roy Foos’s 279 high game and 717 total, high for the season, were made in the close match against the East Side Team. The team, composed of three juniors, one sophomore and one senior, holds much promise for next year, when the Aquinas Bowling League will again swing into action at the Ridge Bowling Hall. GEORGE DEMMERT — Riy and burly, George turned in many brilliant defensive performances at his tackle berth while his blocking left little to be desired. BOXING “The winnah and still heavyweight champion of the school— Moose Landry!” With these words ended the third annual boxing tournament held under the auspices of the Mission Unit. Without doubt this year’s affair proved to be the most successful ever held at Aquinas in regard to both attendance and entertainment. For six nights the contestants battled through elimi- nations and on Friday evening April 26, before 750 fans, the championship bouts were held. In the main event, Moose Landry, defending champion, eked out a close three round decision over Elmer Nacca in the heavyweight division. Chuck Dugan copped the light heavyweight championship by scoring a technical knockout over Jack Tracy. Dick Munding copped the middleweight championship by edging out Frank Carra in a close battle while in the welterweight class Art Hawkins won the nod over Tom Kearnes. Billy Reynolds defeated Red Seward for the bantamweight crown and Bob Pocket won a disputed decision over Jack Callahan to take the lightweight honors. In the underweight division Evvie M unding easily defeated Bill Lambert, defending champion. Thus ended the annual Bouts, proving that Aquinas harbors plenty of fistic talent. Because of the favorable results, a boxing team could easily be formed at Aquinas, and, judging from the attendance at the bouts, such an innovation would be well received by the student body. INTRAMURAL PROGRAM During the past four years intramural sports have progressed to such a point that they now prove to be an important factor in our school life. Not only do these sports train future varsity players but they also help develop better men out of those who lack varsity ability. Sports teach the lessons of playing fair, co-operation and temperament, and also bring out certain abilities and hidden qualities which most young men possess. Under the direction of the Basilian Fathers the intramural sports schedule expanded and the student participation increased. A very extensive basketball and football system has provided the varsity coaches with players well versed in fundamentals. However these two major sports are not the only ones enjoyed by the student body. Volley ball, bowling, baseball, tennis and horseshoes have also received their share of attention. We, as Seniors, wish to congratulate the Basilian Fathers for their wonderful interest and hard work in fostering this extensive schedule and hope that the future classes enjoy these sports as much as we have.Our Advertisers Patronise ThemSdfail and tyareluel From our complete stock of fine wines and liquors will be filled many a glass to toast the Efficiency of the faculty and Success to the Qraduates of cSAquinas Institute DRIVING PARK - DEWEY LIQUOR STORE, Inc. 348 Driving Park Avenue The Friendly Store Phone Glen wood 7287Your Story in Picture Leaves Nothing Untold "Copper Etching" The most successful industries today are those who use photo engravings to sell their products.
