6 For Guidance And Understanding 42 For Friendship And Brotherhood 68 For The Goal Of Victory 86 For Success And Achievement
What is life but a constant reaching out; a reaching out for growth, love, understanding, happiness, truth, peace, friendship and brotherhood. Our wonderful years here at Ryan have been spent in that kind of reaching out. Yet aside from all of our ambitious goals, needs and desires, the most important kind of reaching out that we shall always remember is our reaching out for God and others. For some of us this may be difficult to admit, but in reality that is what life is all about.
What does this reaching out for God and others truly mean? It means reaching out to follow Christ day by day by living our faith in love for one another. It is developing a true brotherhood in the midst of our Ryan community. Reaching out for God and others means sharing and having shared every precious day at Ryan with the people around us. It is being fully alive in every sense of the word.
For many of us our years at Ryan have been spent in a great deal of meaningful reaching out. Though the results of our efforts might have been painful at times, they have nevertheless helped us to grow. When we look back on these years, let us remember how we indeed reached out and often found what we sought. Most of all, let us not forget all of the kind and dear people at Ryan who helped us along the way with their love and support. ft MFour years ago you came to Archbishop Ryan High School for Boys to grow, to learn and to give. Thank you for all you have given to the school, but most of all for the gift of yourselves. Your academic records, your memories and friends are certain measures of your growth and learning and this process should continue. As our holy father, St. Francis, completed his years on earth, he said, “Brothers, let us begin, because up until now we have done nothing.” Now as you complete your high school years, and enter upon a new path, 1 say to you, “Brothers, let us begin.”
May the lord bless you and keep you!
May he show his face to you,
And give you peace!
May the lord bless you!
Blessing of St. Francis Fr. Noel, O.F.M.

"Guiding Us Along The Way"
Guidance and understanding are an important part of reaching out here at Ryan. The administration has provided a great deal of that guidance for all Ryan students. Planning the academic curriculum, coordinating classroom movement and various other school activities both athletic and social, arranging the school’s budget, student rostering and generally guiding the students toward receiving a quality education in a disciplined meaningful atmosphere are just a few of the many functions of the administration. We are very fortunate to have such dedicated people keeping our school in top functioning order.

"Reaching For Christ"
Archbishop Ryan is a Catholic high school with a religious atmosphere. Teachers mold students’ attitudes and values by approaching every subject in a Christian way. The Theology Department’s goal is to show students the richness of their religion in the fullest sense. By presenting various topics as Scripture, morality, the Church, Jesus, faith, social justice, the Sacraments and prayer, teachers develop well rounded, mature young men through their efforts. The Theology Department, through its spiritual guidance, is truly at the heart of the Ryan community.

"Living Our Language"
Developing creativity and instilling a sense of precision and care in the expression of ideas are the primary goals of the English Department. Written composition is taught to enable students to express their thoughts clearly, correctly and effectively in writing. Reading is encouraged for enjoyment. What the students learn from reading is an extra bonus. Department Head Fr. Gabriel sums it up precisely, “We would like the student to leave us convinced that English is unique among his subjects, that literature is, above all other studies, the mirror of life.”

Student awareness in the realms of political, social, and economic ideology has been the major achievement of this department. The staff has provided a comprehensive spectrum of political and social concepts within the expanse of their resources. Through the use of multi-media facilities, independent study programs, and speakers from public life, students have been able to explore opposing viewpoints, analyze data, and develop an inquiring attitude toward current social problems.
The department’s goal has been one of establishing the foundations for democratic citizenship based on Christian ethics.
Chairman Edward Ulmer summed his aspirations as, “The development of a growing sensitivity among students toward themselves and others, so that they are respected as human beings.”

"The Life Sciences - Biology Ecology"
The purpose of the various life sciences here at Ryan is to help students become aware of biology in their lives in terms of Christian philosophy. Classroom cur-riculums are kept up to date with the latest biological information by a well informed and concerned faculty. Laboratory exercises are very essential to let students experience the practical aspects of biology. The Department has excellent laboratory and media research facilities intended to broaden and enhance students’ interests. Also advanced and diversified courses are offered to satisfy every student’s needs.

"Physical Sciences: A World Of Matter Energy"
The aim of the physical sciences offered here at Ryan is to guide the students toward a better understanding of such concepts as gravity, matter, energy, the atom and how various physical forces and laws affect mankind. Leading students over the threshold in an understanding of the mysteries of the physical universe must indeed be a rewarding experience for those involved. Comprehensive instruction and personal attention make even the most abstract theories quite palatable.

"Cultural Appreciation "
The Foreign Language Department attempts to give students a working knowledge of French, Spanish or German. Through the use of audio-visual aids, students are introduced to the various ideas and customs of other people throughout the world. These aids supplement the use of textbooks and workbooks which help the students to achieve fluency in both speaking and writing, under the careful guidance of their instructors.

"Understanding Free Enterprise"
The major purposes of this Department are to make students aware of the business world and to prepare them for careers in it as effectively and smoothly as possible. It also prepares students for adjustment into our economic system by training them in buying insurance, arranging credit, banking, preparing income tax returns, writing letters and reports and coping with other economic components of daily living. It is through the Business Department that students become familiar with these various aspects of our free enterprise system and learn to deal with them efficiently.

"Communications and Creativity"
Art is truly a rainbow of human activity. At one end of this rainbow you’ll find Ryan. By using such delicate tools as pencils, pens, charcoal, water colors, pastels, flourescent inks, acrylics, and oils, students are able to paint with living colors. Sculptures are also made from either wood or clay. This Department is responsible for the scenery and decorations in the play, Ring Mass, Christmas and Spring Concerts, various activity posters and programs, and of course, graduation.
Ryan is alive with the sound of music. All types of bands such as concert, marching, dance, pit, and symphonic are consolidated into the Music Department. Preparing students for future activities in music and broadening their musical talents and interests is what this department is all about. By playing and practicing music, students are given the opportunity to explore their limits, develop leadership qualities, grow mentally and physically, and learn to work together.

The T.V. Studio serves as the medium for presenting the faculty and students with programs of educational value as well as means to produce innovative visual programming for educational and recreational purposes. In addition to providing informative news during the homeroom period, the Studio has proved a valuable tool in training the Media class—the future directors of the Studio’s operations.
The management of the Studio can be accredited to Mr. Kyran Connelly. It is his sincere hope that as WARB matures in its programming, the teachers will become more aware of the possibilities of educational T.V. within their regular class presentations.The effective use of A.V.A. equipment adds much to the Directing to create the perfect sound,
related arts curriculum.
"Developing Strength of Body and Character"
To get students physically, mentally, and socially balanced through a varied program of different activities and sports is a major goal of the Physical Education Department. By instructing students in basic games and rules, teachers hope to show points of strategy so that students can develop their
own skills and learn to perform with their best effort and ability. The purpose of such a program of physical fitness is to build up a healthy community. The gym instuctors constantly strive to encourage students not to give up and say, “I can’t do it,” but rather to try with their best effort.
Exercise is essential for a healthy body.

"Media Research Center"
The Library, which has undergone many changes over the past few years, is a room that probably every student has visited at least once and received something of worth from it for cither scholastic studies or personal interest. It is among the most important facilities in this school, for without it and its workers, many would be lost in their academic research. We owe a great deal of thanks to the people who have kept it in smooth working order.

"Creators of Organization"
The work for Ryan secretaries seems, at times, to be endless. It consists of filing confidential and permanent records, handling tuition payments, recording absentee calls, sending out monthly mail, typing up various schedules for exams and activities, recording the minutes for all of the principal’s council meetings and various other administrative duties. Without the Ryan secretaries, many things would be left undone and for their hard work, we are very grateful.

Persevering, determined, honest, friendly, kind, and active are the words which describe the members of the Student Council during this past year at Ryan. Through their hard work and dedicated efforts, they have been able to establish a better rapport between the students, faculty, and administration alike. Their list of achievements is truly one to be admired. It includes such accomplishments as: painting the locker rooms, car washes, a successful Warpath Weekend, a Hoopla Week which featured the showing of “American Graffiti,” pep rallies, coffee houses co-sponsored with the Girls’ Council, a student loan program, renovation of the Student Council Office, Operation Treat which was a Halloween party for orphans, decoration of the Christmas trees, class nights in the gym, T.V. broadcasts to keep the student body informed, increasing student representation in the Principal’s Council, and a host of other charitable deeds which required a lot of time and hard work. This year the Student Council has been outstanding in the areas of cooperation and student involvement. We would all like to thank them for giving of themselves in order to help others.

Character, scholarship, leadership and service are what the National Honor Society is all about. It is an organization of dedicated and responsible individuals who are selected from the Junior and Senior classes, and are recognized for their outstanding achievements in the previously mentioned four areas. Each year the Society holds an induction ceremony during which the new members arc formally initiated in a solemn chapel service and a subsequent banquet.
Being in the National Honor Society, however, is not an easy sinecure. It requires a lot of service to the school community. One primary function of the society is tutoring. It is a service offered to the members of Ryan’s community who need a little help to better understand their academic studies. This year the society also extended its role of service throughout the neighborhood community by helping to entertain orphans at a Halloween party held at Ryan and by visiting sick children at a nearby hospital.
All of us should be proud of having such outstanding young leaders in our school community.

The newspaper has always been a valuable asset to the student body and faculty alike. Established with the intended purpose of informing students about various school and civil affairs, the Raidcrscope Staff hopes to engender student participation in pertinent issues throughout the school and local community as well. The Raidcrscope serves not simply as an informative medium, but in addition, it provides valuable journalistic experience and practice in literary expression for those individuals aspiring to future careers in creative writing, journalism and newsbroadcasting. Likewise, the Staff strives to broaden the reading, vocabulary, and writing skills of its readers as well.

Memories of our years at Ryan, of good times with our friends, class jokes, school activities, exciting sports games, and most of all, memories of people, teachers, and fellow classmates are ones to be cherished for future years to come. The task of the Arrow’s Staff is to preserve those memories in a school yearbook full of pictures and words which will come alive before the mind of every reader. Many of us want to be remembered, want to leave something behind of ourselves. In the pages of the 1977 Arrow each one of us has left something behind because we have all lived through the year and shared our hopes, joys, sorrows and dreams together here at Ryan.

The World Affairs Council at Ryan has many goals and objectives, many of which have been accomplished throughout this past year. Under the leadership of Mr. George Deal, the young men of the Council constantly strive to increase student political awareness through various means such as mock elections, guest speakers and television broadcasts. They arc actively involved with the Philadelphia World Affairs Council in its sponsored activities like the simulated United Nations Debate. The members of the Council also particiaptc in community political events; for example, by assisting the community with the registration of voters. Their biggest goal is to increase student sensitivity and support for the poor by organizing the collection of canned goods.
51Members of (he German Club.
Freundschaft and Gemutlichkeit; friendship and good, relaxing fun are ihe words which best describe the Ryan German Club. Learning about German culture is all part of the fun and this includes German singing, folk dancing (with girls of course), and of course, partying. The Club cosponsors many activities with the Girls’ side German Club. This year some of the highlights were: an Oktobcrfcst’ a St. Nicholas Tag Dance, a Christmas Party, a soccer game with the French Club which resulted in a 1-0 German victory, a Fasching celebration and a local DVFSG convention. It’s a great place to meet new friends and have a good lime.

Mr. Joseph Cunningham— Moderator
Paris, the Eiffel Tower, Seine River, champagne, souffle, Charles deGaulle and the Louvre are just some of the words which give one a picture of France, its people and culture. The French Club here at Ryan tries to give interested students a taste of what French language and culture are all about. This is done in an informal setting through the many creative and recreational activities which the club sponsors. It’s a place where you can have fun, meet friends and learn French at the same time. Au revoir!
Lcs Plus Formidables.BAND
The Band is that group of virtuosos who are working to develop the musical appreciation of the school. Their constant work and dedication are evident in the high quality of their performances. It is not an accident that Ryan is reputed to have the finest band in the city. Many hours of practice have developed the musicianship that has earned this fine reputation. The Band exists for the purpose of entertaining students and bringing a good reputation to the school, as well as providing enjoyment for its members. Throughout this year, the Band played at numerous football games, concerts, in parades, school activities, and even at the Woodhaven Center for Retarded Children.

55GUYS AND DOLLS
Once again our Ryan thespians have swept their audiences off their feet. “Guys and Dolls” was truly a sensational hit.
The planning for this exciting musical began way back in June of 1976, when Fr. Gabriel, the Director met with the other members of the production staff to discuss possible ideas for a production. As in previous years, a musical was chosen because of the overwhelming popularity of musicals in appealing to the audiences. In a musical like “Guys and Dolls,” which deals with gamblers during the 1920’s, the plot is mostly comical with a moral attached to it.
October signaled the beginning of tryouts for the play. These included reading certain lines, singing and acting out various emotions in specific situations. From well over 350 candidates, a cast of 175 was chosen. Then in February, practices shifted from the classroom onto the stage itself. Finally at the end of March dress rehearsals were conducted. Fr. Gabriel really enjoyed working with his cast because they were very cooperative, dedicated and competent. As a result of such good rapport, he was able to work closely with them and this, in his opinion, spelled out success. Though it involved sacrifice, in the end it was worth it.

A pawn is moved, a knight is positioned, a bishop is captured, the queen moves in and checkmate! Another chess game is won. This year the brave knights of Ryan’s Chess Club had mounted their steeds once again and rode off to battle, not in the countryside, but rather on chess boards. Yes, chess isn’t a battle fought with swords or guns, but a battle of mental wits. A person tries to outfox his opponent through skillful play and strategy. It is not uncommon to see Ryan students going at each other’s kings. Intra-club tournaments. Catholic League competition, matches with the faculty and various other tournaments kept the members of the Club concentrating and playing throughout the year.
Ryan is indeed very fortunate to have such a fine Art Club. These imaginative geniuses have created the best in decorative scenery for such gala occasions as the Mothers’ Association Revue, Cozy Morlcy Night, National Honor Society Induction Ceremony and the New Year’s Eve Party at Ryan, not to even mention the countless posters which are made up for various school activities.

58The Wilderness Family.
The Outdoor Club is a fairly new club here at Ryan but it sure is an active one. Some of the club’s recent activities were: canoeing down the Delaware River, mountain climbing at Ralph Stover Park, hiking on Mt. Pinnacle and a summer camping trip to West Virginia. The club has many goals among which are: personal growth experiences, learning individual responsibility and leadership, discovering one’s physical limitations through endurance, working effectively with others in a group, meeting new people and learning to trust your life with others. Mr. Trainer, Mr. Reardon and Mr. Tori, the Moderators, also teach the members the basics in mountain climbing, camping, and map and compass reading.

59COUNSELING CENTER AIDES
Keeping the Counseling Corner running in a working order is accomplished partly through the diligent services of the Counseling Center Aides. They distribute counseling appointment slips, help to decorate and clean the center and take care of some of the paper work. These young men donate a majority of their free time to accomplish all of this work, whether it be before school, during homeroom or free periods, or after school.
Mrs. Joan Cox—Counseling Center Moderator
Working under the direction of Bro. Julian, their Moderator, the Discipline Office Aides devote a great deal of their time to help keep one of the busiest offices in school functioning effeciently. Though sometimes under student pressure because of the nature of their job, the aides nonetheless do their work properly. This includes such responsibilities as writing out late slips, filing these slips as well as demerit slips in the proper folders and many other types of office work.

Bro. Julian Cerkiewicz—Counseling Center ModeratorSTAGE CREW
Working behind the scenes literally describes the main function of the Stage Crew. Whenever there is a concert, special assembly, a play or any other type of event which requires the use of the stage in the auditorium, you can count on the Stage Crew to get everything ready. The duties of this active group range from setting up the lights, microphones and various other props, to constructing and moving the scenery at the annual school play.
The Appeals Board is a school committee composed of students which meets once a week in order to make judgements on whether or not a demerit or demerits given to a particular student by a teacher arc justified. If they find that the demerit(s) is unfair, they will submit their decision to Mr. Pawlowski. This committee at least tries to settle various disputes in a diplomatic way.
SENIOR PROM COMMITTEE
Dancing with your girl in the spotlight is only part of the romantic atmosphere at a senior prom. The rest is what the Prom Committee is all about. Through their hard working efforts in such diverse tasks as selecting the chaperones, choosing the place and decorations, finding groups to play the music and then listening to their auditions, picking the charm, carefully selecting the food and then taste-testing it, which in this case, was prime rib, organizing the dedications and theme, calling tuxedo rental stores to obtain samples and finally estimating the price of the ticket, they had made the prom a truly memorable occasion indeed. The theme was “Precious and Few” and most of us will treasure it in our hearts long after we’ve left Ryan.
61ACTIVITES OFFICE AIDES
Although they are most noted for their achievements in the area of repairing locker difficulties, the Activities Office Aides arc really multi-talented. Their various other duties range from selling all types of tickets to posting the list of school activities on the outside bulletin board and of course, constantly sharpening pencils for their fellow students. Most of all, however, these aides assist Fr. Joel in the general functioning of the Activities Office.
Thousands of students from Ryan and various other surrounding schools attend the Ryan dances each year without thinking about who helped to always set up the gym floor and keep the dances in smooth functioning order. For this we pay tribute to the dedicated members of the Dance Crew who spent many long hours setting up and taking down the gym floor plus the various other decorations, giving out soda and pretzels, handling the coats and cleaning up after everybody has long gone home.
Fr. Rcnc offers to Ryan students a vast array of articles at the school store. Students can purchase a large selection of school supplies, athletic equipment, and other goods. Jackets and a variety of school letters, patches, decals, and mugs arc also for sale.
Fr. Rene Barczak
Amateur biologists maybe, but the members of the Biology Club arc really helpful to have around. They help to insure the maintenance and smooth functioning of not only the Biology lab, but also most of the equipment which belongs to the Biology Department. Some of their diverse tasks include setting up laboratory equipment, cleaning the lab, cleaning and maintaining laboratory equipment like microscopes, slides, test tubes, etc. and placing them in the proper order, feeding the fish in the aquarium and also taking care of the other plant and animal specimens.

Warpath Weekend at Ryan is a festive weekend devoted to school spirit, unity, fun and fellowship among all members of Ryan's community. It is celebrated for the purpose of heightening school spirit toward victory at a homecoming football game. Classes aren’t held on Friday and students report to school for a day of fun-filled activities. The dress code is relaxed in favor of encouraging students to wear school colors. This year some of the highlights were: a color judging contest among all of the homerooms, a movie for the juniors and seniors, games for the freshmen and sophomores, a rock concert for all featuring three groups, two special dances, and the big football game on Sunday, which included a parade and the crowning of the Warpath Queen at halftime.FOOTBALL

They began in the early mornings of late August and did not stop until the end of November. They watched their team develop and fought hard. They were the 1976 Raiders, under the guidance of a new coaching staff, headed by Mr. Paul Turner. They gave the game their best, and like most former Ryan athletes, they left with something that isn’t lost at the close of a season, a fuller sense of maturity.

The 1976-77 basketball season was above all a strong rebuilding season for the Raiders’ team. With a spirit and enthusiasm unparalleled in its magnitude the team turned the basketball program around and through their skillful play gained a great deal of respect in the Catholic League. Though they suffered disappointment, the team members pushed on and increased their hard efforts and concentration. Thus they were able to spring back and achieve many well-earned victories. Under the guidance of a fine coaching staff the Raiders kept going even when it got tough. They are indeed a true testimony to the Ryan Spirit.

Known as football to the Europeans and South Americans, the game is known to us as soccer. At Ryan, however, soccer is much more than a game, it is the ultimate test of strategy, endurance, skill, and fancy footwork. Though they didn’t win the championship, the Ryan team definitely earned the reputation of being a soccer powerhouse. They not only out-shot, out-dazzled and out-scored most of their opponents, but they surged forth with a tremendous amount of talent and team spirit. Look out! This is only the beginning of things to come.

Free style. Not just another stroke for the Ryan Swim Team. It is the Ryan Swim Team. A style of winning, free and easy, a style that outclasses opposing teams, a style that enabled them to defeat LaSalle for the first time ever this season, a style that led them to a most impressive 7-1 season record, a style that will soon make the Ryan Swim Team “the" class of the league.CROSS COUNTRY
Ai Ryan, cross country is an extra-curricular activity which strives to develop students into well rounded men both physically and mentally. Cross country is a sport which requires a great deal of practice, dedication, and endurance. Most of the meets arc run over a 2.9 mile course at Belmont Plateau which consists of hills, rolling slopes, curves, and straghtaways. This year Ryan captured the Catholic League Championship for the 2nd year in a row, and the 3rd straight City Championship. The other victories included 2nd place in the Temple Invitational Meet, and also 2nd place in the War Veterans Meet. Among the many fine runners are seniors Keith Davies and Brian Boyle and a sophomore, Timothy Naylor, made All-Catholic. Congratulations!
Cross Country and Track Coach. Ed Ulmer
Ryan’s track program has grown over the years in size, interest, and strength. The second floor corridor serves as an adequate practice field. The track season is broken up into two separate parts, indoor and outdoor track. Indoor track is run during the winter. It consists of running events like sprints, hurdles, and distance events, plus field competition involving the shot put, high jump, and pole vault. Outdoor track has, in addition to the running events, different field events such as the javelin and hammer.
During this past season, Ryan won the Catholic league Mile Relay and its 3rd consecutive Indoor Track Championship. This victory was the 7th such title for Ryan and the 5th in a row. What a team!
America’s national pastime is alive and well here at Ryan and is as popular as ever. This year the baseball team finished another impressive season highlighted by great plays and dedicated effort. The team started training in February with a rigorous two and a half hour a day program which included calisthenics, running, and play scrimmages. Practices were conducted at Junard under the direction of an excellent coaching staff. Facing up the the challenge of a total of six pre-season and sixteen regular season games, the team emerged as a group of devoted players. Unfortunately pictures of this season’s action could not be obtained because of the Arrow’s deadlines for publication. The pictures you sec here were taken during this years pre-season training and at the closing games last season.

84Ippon! To experience a taste of Japanese culture one must experience one of Japan’s oldest and most popular sports, Judo. However, Judo is much more than this. It is the art of gentleness in the sense that it doesn’t emphasize any form of violence, but rather a peaceful development of the mind and body. “To be quiet, calm, attentive, and considerate is to be strong.” “One gains victory over the oppenent by giving way, gentle turns away sturdy.” According to Prof. Jigoro Kano, who founded the art in 1882, “The principle of the maximum efficient use of mind and body is the fundamental principle governing all the techniques of Judo.”
The Ryan Judo Club under the direction of its sensei, Fr. David, attempts to give its students instruction and experience in many forms of Judo including throwing techniques, pins, holding techniques, escapes, various forms of self-defense and many, many others.

135Yes, the year is all over. Little did all of us realize how swiftly time passed by. Time, precious time, how full of life it was indeed; having fun with our friends, joking around, cramming for exams, cheering at games, giving up sweat, reaching to win, sharing with our friends, talking, laughing, crying, and reaching to become, to be a better person in the spirit of the Ryan tradition. Yes, those years have gone by and as each senior knows deep down in his heart, he shall never again walk in the halls of Ryan as a Ryan student. However, this parting, though sad it may be, calls each one of us to a new and greater challenge, the challenge of the future, of becoming not only a better person but a better Christian.
We, the members of the Arrow Staff, have strived to present this year in a yearbook which you will always cherish and remember because it symbolizes your hopes, joys, sorrows and dreams as they were at Ryan during the 1976-77 school year. Someday when you open the dusty covers of this book, when you are older and maybe far away, remember, remember how it was, how it felUas we lived and grew together as brothers in Christ here at Ryan. All of us would like to thank you for simply being you because the 1977 Arrow is your yearbook. We enjoyed putting it together and we hope you share that joy with us.
We would like to sincerely express our deepest gratitude to Mr. Rogers, our Moderator, who truly helped us along the way by donating more than enough of his time, his dear wife for her hard work in typing everything up, and likewise the faculty, administration, staff and you, the students for your help, cooperation, and inspiration. “ . . . Through the years, though we may wander
To paths w hich are far apart;
We will always be united As we pledge with loyal hearts!”
