Every improvement in communication has been an answer to some definite social need and h b ' as rought about profound' social chan . E ' ' ges arly man discarded his animal-like cries of communication when drums, fire, and rude cave paintings better served his growing need to communicate with other men. -Hier- oglyphics and cuneiform writing represented a further improve- ment and formed the basis for the various alphabets used in the development of language. Printing multiplied the message of one man for thousands of eager minds and preserved the knowledge of the hand-written books for the centuries yet unborn. Within a few years after the application of electricity to communication, all important centers of civilization were in instant communication with each other by the telegraph. Photography gave the true appearance of things which distant readers might never see at first hand. Sound recording and the motion pictures formed a medium of mass communication of incalculable influence for it increased enormously the conveying of information and the depiction of emotions, The combination of radio and television has opened realms of communication to man which can lead to the ennoble- ment of the human spirit or the degradation of the mind. -ll. sup , .,. vm .. . ,.-,ln 4, 'f"',Z?3- 44,71 K , ,1,,gf,.., .,,..

X Moses occupies a unique position in history, re- ligion and literature. Historically he represented for the Jews their voice of protest against the tyranny of the Pharoah and their leader in the exodus to the Promised Land. For the Christian world he was the recipient of the first full-fledged revelation from God of the precepts and desires which man must follow in his return to God. The world of literature is deeply indebted to the forrn and content of the Bible ot which the Pentateuch forms the solid foundation.

They touch every phase of the thought of his time and constitute an imposing compendium of Greek learning and culture. Here was a philosopher who wrote for the man in the street, in languge he could understand, and in a form as lively and compelling as the gusty bouts of conversation which were a daily occurrence on the streets of Athens. He brought the heights of Greek philosophy and thought down to the common man. x f 1 Q l fffffwff-'ffif-Tw't" EW' f ,- f ,4 1 fx' s -H H a-6yKoffCpg7HfL, "i" 'L' A -4 I J 9 'zfoffwfcaf 4711 c:t.6lC'fa5f Mfdllfgid' ', 1 ' ' ---li -'ii-' '41, ly cjfoolul K ..:.

Paul's fine tenor voice and act- ing ability promise greater things in the future. ln the part of Kathy, who loves the Prince and is later forced to give him up, Nancy Muller, no stranger to the Stepinac stage, co-starred with Paul.

This trio of merry-making students provided a dramatic bridge be- tween the Corps and the Court, and transported the audience back to the University of Heidelberg. Detleff, von Asterberg, and Lucas became memorable characters in the course of an evening by the deft handling of these three roles. The romantic interest was furthered by the plight of the Princess, portrayed by Jo-Ann Vitucci, who loved the Prince, but who, because of his indifference toyed with the affections of a man beneath her station.

An extremely important role was filled perfectly by the discovery of Bill Mclvor. As Count von Mark, the iron-faced Prime Minister, Bill left his mark on the Stepinac stage. An- other important role was delightfully discovered in the char- acter of Gretchen, superbly played by Sue Birdsall whose final catch of Hubert endeared her to the hearts of the audience. ln the part of Hubert, secretary to Lutz, Dick O'Keefe showed himself a sure and deft artist, with the creation of a truly laughable character. Grace DeCecco stood out with a fine per- formance in a difficult character part, that of the Duchess, beset by Herr Lutz's frantic ravings. Ruder, the troubled inn- keeper was keenly played by Bob Magdelain, who showed that his talent would be in demand next year. 63 i 4. Courtesy of Manhattanville Miss Nancy Witchie I "Lutz . . .

Fine acting was also turned in by Jed Williamson, as Toni the waiter, Sheila Logan, in the part of the Countess Leydon, Ed Travato, the portrayer of Baron Arnheim, and Bill Wake- field as Nicholas. Jack McCarthy, while serving in the im- portant role of Student Director, also found time to give us the part of Rudolph, the last love of Kathy. No show of this caliber could dare to open without the vitality given to it by a well-trained chorus. This year's chorus, under the direction of Fr. William McGann, provided a lively mood, reminiscent of old Heidelberg. The choreography, un- der the guidance of Mr. Ray LaBru became an integral part of the production. For the first time, the show was accompanied by an orchestra, whose fine accompaniment was a tribute to the foresight and hard work of Fr. McGann.

And this is how we learn." . ,..4..., ln the football season the Marching Band is the busiest of these groups, providing rythmical accompani- ment to Stepinac's rooting section, and displaying their intricate formations in half-time programs. Besides this schedule the Band performs at all rallies and assemblies where music is needed and in many military and patri- otic parades in White Plains. The Band, composed of about sixty students, looks forward -to next year and a possible increase in size and new uniforms. "1-...f 67 Fr. McGann Directing. When the social season rolled around, the Swing Band came to the fore with its accomplished playing at most Stepinac dances. Under the leadership of Bruce Cosacchi, and featuring the best of the school's musicians the Swing Band has become well-known throughout the county for its reliable performances and unique style and was in great demand for many outside engagements. The Swing Band received the honor of appearing on the Teen Band- stand and were ranked high in comparison to other schools. -1.41 Bruce Cosacchi ii- Franklin Bohlen This year's work load was increased by the addition of a Christmas Concert, featuring the combined Glee Clubs of Stepinac and St. Catherine's Academy. The Glee Club, composed mainly of seniors, were warmly received for their remarkable rendition of songs appro- priate to the Christmas season, This event, a new one at Stepinac, featured many selections by the Glee Clubs, and several vocal and piano solos. N Another new event this year was the formation of an Orchestra, designed to provide accompanimentfor the musical, "The Student Prince." Working in conjunction with girls from St. Catherines High School in the Bronx and Manhattanville College, the Orchestra lent new depth to the annual production.

At the close of the school year, all these organiza- tions, with the exception of the Marching Band were gathered together for the Spring Musical Festival. This concert represented the culmination of the year's efforts in the musical field. A well balanced program of classical, band and swing music was presented to enthusiastic audiences at Stepinac and St. Catherine's High School. The well appreciated productions of the Music De- partment are result of the efforts of its director, Father William McGann and his assistant, Mr. John Reilly. Their job of providing professional productions on limited re- hearsal time is unenviable, but their record of success indicates how well they have accomplished the direction ot musical activities at Stepinac. - ,, I Wm f, f 55 .4 fr ,vw 1 'K 'f i""'f.f?Q'- WM.

The innovations attempted were the in- creasing ofthe overall size of the edition, the inclu- sion of five color pictures and a record containing various selections from the "Student Prince", the Spring Musical Festival, and the Christmas Concert held in conjunction with St. Catherine's Academy in the Bronx. These were added because the staff felt that since the activities attempted this year were so successful, the yearbook should increase propor- tionately. Business Staff P. Choquette, R. Reynolds, A.

Moderating his third success- ful yearbook is Rev. John Lyons, assisted by Rev. Francis Melican. Among the many tasks that have to be overcome are the planning and developing of the theme, the art work, photography, typing, proof reading and, of course, the most important of all, the financial status. Since there were so many in- novations this year, the latter had a greater signifi- cance than usual. The capable handling of this by the Business Manager, John Hogan, solved many problems. Thus it is with great confidence that the Shep- herd Staff feels with this bigger and better yearbook we will continue the excellent tradition set by pre- vious Shepherds in winning Medalist ratings from the Columbia Scholastic Press Assocation ratings.

Scientific Society L Chemistry Club On every Thursday afternoon after school there can be found in the Chemistry Lab an assortment of 45 seniors actively engaged in experimenting with the mysteries of chemistry. Under the capable leadership of Rev. Laurence McGowan the club attempts the experiment of the week. Once a month these experiments take on a greater significance as the members of the Good Counsel Chemistry Club journey to Stepinac to try their hands at the secrets hidden in the test tubes of 230. A typical meeting consists of a short lecture on the experiment by Father McGowan, the experiment itself and afterwards a discussion aided by refreshments supplied by the members' dues. Each year some center of scientific interest is visited. This year the club traveled to Bayway, New Jersey to see the Esso Research Center. 'fr WW tif M.. 1.w"i"' in . - H ., . 'W QQ Scholastically the Scientific Society has brought more renown and distinction to Stepinac than any other group. Com- posed of the members of all the other scientific or natural science groups who have prepared projects for any contest, it develops over a period of four years numerous students who are concentrating on intensive research and who wish to learn how their projects compare with those from other schools. While it is directly moderated by Fr. McGowan, it must de- pend upon the cooperation and devotion of the other science moderators. 76 "Fireman FiIardi" starts his Induction Coil. it . , , f N-N., 'v Yami Scientific Society Front Row: C.

The primary pur- pose of the General Science Club is to prepare those Freshman, who are inter- ested in science, for the more advanced courses of study they will encounter during later years. Under the guidance of Br. Martinian they met bi-weekly to gain skill and ex- perience that is beyond class work. This knowledge finds an outlet in the many scientific contests that present themselves during the school year. An interest in science that is begun in this club often leads to a career in one of the many branches of science. Biology Club Aiming to present to the student a more detailed view of the field of Biology, the club presents opportunities to perform experiments beyond the scope of class- work. Meetings, consisting of either a discussion or movie on some prominent facet of Biology, occur bi-weekly. Oc- casional field trips to sites of general in- terest spark the knowledge learned in class with realism. Sitting: T, James, R. McDonald, J. Hayes, J. San Giovanni, E. Rambusch. Standing: Bro.

It is a preparation for the College Entrance Examinations and the various scholarship examinations which are taken Q. in senior year. Also it is an outlet for those students who wish to have a more advanced knowledge of mathematics end for those who wish to receive help in a math subject with which they are having difficulty. lt is the capable leadership of Brother Nivard that aids the students of Stepinac in garnering many mathe- matical honors.

K.B.S. and Altar Boys To help students to exemplify the perfect Catholic young man-that is the object of the Stepinac organization known as the K.B.S. or the Knights of the Blessed Sacrament. The organization is divided into two groups, the Altar Boys and the main body of the K.B.S., which is subdivided into the class Prefects and the members themselves. The members of this group represent by their actions the ideals of the Boy Christ. They also pledge themselves to follow the requirements set down by the K.B.S. Among just these are: a promise to receive Holy Communion every week, to recruit other members, to attend Benediction every Friday and many other spiritual activities. As an example ot the splendid work that this society is engaged in we may cite the fact that dur- ing the last year six-thousand communions were distributed at school. The Altar Boys go a step further and actively take part in the religious activities ot the school, by serving at daily Mass and the various special Masses at which the entire school attends. K.B.S.

This group has a particular devotion to the Blessed Mother, who will always occupy a principal position in the religious lite ofthe student body. Conceived last year, under the careful guidance ot Father Mc- Dermott the members ot this group have been given more opportunities to foster devotion to Mary with- -a in themselves by learning about her lite and ideals. Every Monday afternoon these meetings took place and after opening prayers to Mary there tol- lowed a discussion ot the ways to interest other stu- dents and friends into the company ot Mary. Slides and motion pictures of the shrines ot Mary are tre- quently viewed. Included in these programs are annual trips to Maryknoll and Dunwoodie Semi- naries and visits to various Marian shrines in the metropolitan area. This year a joint program was achieved with the Good Counsel Academy group in holding a praesidium in our auditorium. Here the topics on debate concerned problems ot youth and vocations.

This is accomplished by weekly meet- ings ofthe club which are held by groups in which those interested in typing, duplicating and calculating ma- chines meet with their group for further training in their particular field. The purpose of the Business Club is to give the busi- ness students an opportunity to apply the skills learned in their various courses to a practical situation. The club is divided into groups as follows: duplicating, typing and calculating machines. After advanced training in each of these felds each group is able to help various school functions through the making of posters, typing letters, stencils, etc. The Senior Bulletin, which is printed weekly by senior members of the club, offers a medium for presenting news that is of interest, primarily, to the seniors.

Senior and Junior Prom Committees At the renowned and beautiful Glen Island Casino, the Senior Promenade was held on the first of June. The dance was truly a memorable one, highlighted by the music of the noted Claude Thornhill and his or- chestra. lt was the first year that the Senior Class was entertained by a name band. All those who attended appreciated the directing hand of the senior moder- ator, Father Stanley Mathews. He was ably assisted by John McCarthy, President of the student body, Frank Bohlen, Richard Gervasini, and many others, whose Dance Committee Under the direction of Father John Gaffney, the Dance Committee provided a major portion of the school's social activities. 1 Just prior to a dance the committee meets and de cides on a color theme, and various members are selected to decorate the gymnasium on the afternoon of the dance. Posters are painted, some of which are placed around the building, while others are sent to neighboring girls' schools. Even on the night of the affair their work continues, since it is the Committee members who collect the tickets and set up the re freshments. .Wf- Senior Prom Committee Kneeling: R. Reynolds, P.

Chess Club One of the new additions in the realm of club activities this year was the chess society headed by Brother Meinrad. Prompted by the knowledge of students who wished to play the sport, the chess club was founded. The prime purpose of the organization was to encourage students to engage intra- murally in competition. During the year many chess tournaments were held with other schools, such as Horace Mann, Ford- ham and Storm King. Although the won- lost record was not an impressive one, due to lack of experience, the boys, however, en- joyed many an afternoon in these mental gymnastics. The Aquinas Society The Aquinas Society is a renovation ofthe old honor roll system and was instituted last year by the Dean of Studies, Father Nolan, to encourage the students in attaining higher scholastic recognition. Under the patronage of Saint Thomas Aquinas, the renowned Catholic scholar, theologian, philosopher, and Patron of all Catholic Schools, this so- ciety adds prestige to its members. The Society is divided into two groups, The first or Primi are those who have ob- tained at least 85 percent in each subject for any three marking periods in either se- mester. The second group are the Secundi, the members of which have obtained the same grades tor any one marking period. Pins are awarded to the Primi as a mark of special achievement. Meetings are held at the call of the Dean of Studies. Those who are members of the Aquinas Society rightly deserve that honor and set a prime example for other students to attain such rewards for their scholastic ability. Chess Club Front Row: P.

At Stepinac the reins of Student Government reside in the hands of three groups: the Senior Senate, the Student Council and the School Officers. Each complement the others while performing their own special functions. The Senior Senate, the highest elected body, meets un- der the direction of Fr. Mathews to present solutions for present problems or to recommend plans for coming school events. Representatives from each Senior homeroom com- bine with the officers of each year to offer the viewpoint of the student body on all matters of importance. Conferring often with members of the administration, it serves in an advisory capacity on matters affecting the student body. The Student Council, working under the direction of Fr. Sullivan, is responsible for the maintanence of order in the halls and the overall conduct of the student body. Com- posed of outstanding students from Junior and Senior years, the councilors aid the enforcement of school regulations, contributing to the efficiency and order of the school. The school officers, representatives of the student body, selected from a party slate, act as the direct contact be- tween student and faculty and as liason between the mem- bers of the other executive bodies in the student govern- ment. lt is through the class officers that the individual student may request the betterment of conditions in the school especially those concerned with social activities.

Al- though young in years, Stepinac's library has grown in quantity and quality approaching this standard. The Library Club, administered by Brother George Patrick, involves the services of other students due to the excess ot work. Among the more noticable services of the club are the periodic exhibits that appear each month, discussing contemporary books and the annual Catholic Press Month Exhibit which illustrates the works of the finest Catholic writers. lncluded among the works of the library is the supervision ot audio- visual aids which enable the students to comprehend more easily the varied arts and sciences. These aids include wire-recorders, motion picture projectors, rec- ords and many other facilities that help make educa- tion interesting. Bro. George Patrick supervises.

One of the organizations that has grown year by year is the Mission Crusade. This year's contribu- tions from the students have surpassed all previous totals. While each individual homeroom selects its own mission representative, Fr. Murray presided as moderator of the society. Out of every dollar contributed fifty cents is sent to the foreign missions, the remaining half is divided among the home missions and the Holy Land. This year's total of more than three thousand dollars exceeded last year's two thousand four hun- dred dollars. During Lent the society directed its efforts towards the Bishop's War Relief and col- lected over four hundred dollars. Mother's Day Mass Cards are sent to the students by the Propaga- tion ofthe Faith. Its purpose is more than financial, for it offers spiritual contributions in the form of the offering of masses.

The importance of a man's ability to express his thoughts clearly is ap- preciated at Stepinac by many organizations but by none so much as the Ora- torical Society and the moderator, Father John Mulroy. Under Father Mulroy's direction Stepinac has been well represented in this field in the past, and this year is no exception. ln the first event of the year, the American Legion Oratorical Contest, Kevin Buckley won first place and the gold medal, even though he is only a sophomore. Second place was won by Peter Bourlier and third by Patrick Brennan, both juniors. Sophomores Robert Mangone and John Manfredi also competed. Two other events, the CYO and the Journal American Contest were conducted in the Spring with as satisfying results. Fr. Sheets, Moderator, P. Ryan, K. Buckley, R. Madden, J.

The spirit of the sophomore class was again mani- fested in the large numbers of their class who participated in the prepa- ration and delivery of debates under the tireless guidance of Father Sheets. Competing favorably in four interscho- lastic debates and two tournaments, the members displayed a commendable poise and received experience that will turn them into polished debaters in the future. 88 i. The Alumni Society The Alumni Society has now grown to full blown maturity for the first class to spend four years at Stepinac has now graduated from col- lege. This June will see many of them married, others receiving commissions in the various Armed Services and many firmly entered into the business world. The Alumni Society, under the painstaking guidance of Father Mathews has been responsible every year for welding all the graduates together with the Alumni News- letter and providing means of keeping Contact with their Alma Mater.

William Ward, completed its most comprehensive and successful year. lts increased membership enabled it to extend and widen the scope of its activities in cooper- ation with the activities of the school. The as- sistance ofthe members was invaluable in the smooth handling of the crowds at the home football games. The sponsorship of the Annual Football Dinner and the Golden Gloves Night added life and variety to the extra-curricular program of the students. The suggest-ions and help rendered to the moderators of many of the school activities tangibly contributed to the success of these activities and made the link between parent, teacher and student even closer.

Ladies' Auxiliary The Ladies' Auxiliary this year, under the leadership of Mrs. Francis Reynolds, president, had an increased membership of more than 375 mothers. The monthly meetings were highlighted by interesting and informative guest speakers, among whom were Rev. James Keller, founder of the Christopher movement, Rev. Daniel Egan, O.S.A., the famed retreat master, and several members of the Stepinac Faculty. The Auxiliary's chief social event was their annual Easter Bridge, which was, this year, bigger than ever. The revenue taken in for all their endeavors goes toward the expense of running the school. The last affair of their year was the Communion Breakfast which added the appropriate climax to a successful year. Officers 'viz ,Q xt Q f .f J f . "V llf Ng?

Aquinas I3 - Stepinac 6 ln its opening game the i955 edition of the Stepi- nac football team made the annual trip to Rochester to meet Aquinas High School. The Crusaders, underrated as a grid power, totally outclassed the Rochester squad during the entire game in all but the score. After the opening kickoff on their own 35 yard line, they plowed their way to the l5. Choquette then scooted around right end for the first touchdawn of the season. Strong defensive play by George Marklay, Tony Sullivan, and Chick Muscolino held the opponents at bay for the first two periods. However, heavy penalties and costly fumbles took their toll in the third quarter. A 94 yard touchdown run by Choquette was called back in that period and Stepinac never recovered as the irish copped the game I3-6.

A F2 A - i HLA 1. +- Stepinac 'I9 - Fairfield 0 On Saturday, October 8, over i800 people braved rainy weather to watch the Crusaders christen the new football field. After a slow start in the opening quar- ter, the Knights came to life as Choquette romped 37 yards around left end. Ten plays later he bulled over for six points more. Jay Davis returned a Fairfield punt two minutes after the second half opened, and ran untouched for a 60 yard touchdown and then booted the extra point. Later in the period, Bob Downes recovered a fumble which eventually led to another touchdown by Cho- quette. Coach Werder then put in his second stringers and the fans thrilled to the speedy broken running of a vir- tual unknown, sophomore Joe Kerwin, who later was to play a major role in the bid for the CHSFL crown.

The Crusaders again played lethargic ball at the outset of the game but awakened in the second quarter when quarterback Jay Davis hurled a 20 yard pass to Choquette, who sped 35 more yards for the touchdown. ln the third period Bob Downes, Joe Kerwin, and Choquette, masterminded by Davis' adept signal calling, drove to the six yard line where Choquette bulled over for the score. A dozen fumbles plaqued the Crusaders and set up the lone Hayes' score. However in the final two minutes the Knights insured their victory when Henry Sampers made his only touchdown of the year. 95 i, ,ay ,, Choquette climaxes I5 yard gain in Hayes game .54 4, in Stomper" eludes last tackler on 55 yard touchdown sprint Choquette i772 eyes All-County obstacle, Bill Draddy 1331. i .sl in Ciccone bulls over from the three. 96 Stepinac 31 - Iona 7 Stepinac returned home on the next Saturday to play its memorable game against lona Prep. The team, inspired by the spirited encouragement of 4,000 fans. played near perfect ball and completely outmanuevered the bewildered Gaels. Choquette repeatedly charged through All-County guard Bill Draddy and accounted for Zi 7 yards and three touchdowns. Two of his touch- downs came on long sprints of 60 and 54 yards each. Davis flipped a i5 yard pass to him for his score of the day. Marklay, Muscolino, and Oscar Pearl obliterated the Gaels' offense as they halted the elusive running tactics of lona halfback Lew Leone. ln our own offen- sive department, Joe Kerwin often relieved the pres- sure from Choquette as he crashed for one touchdown and lateralled to Davis for another. St. Francis 33 - Stepinac I4 Two weeks later a slightly overconfident Stepinac grid squad travelled to Brooklyn to attempt to clinch the Catholic High School Football League title. How- ever the terrible Terriers from St. Francis Prep caught the Knights off guard and sent them home in utter defeat. After they jumped to a 7-6 lead by way of Cho- quette's touchdown and extra point, Crusader victory seemed imminent. But the deft passing and running of Prep quarterback Tom Doherty and the lightning .fast end runs of Ray Ratkowskifsoon put Stepinac behind. Fumbleitis frustrated the Crusaders even fur- ther. ln the final quarter the Knights started to click when Davis tossed a 13 yard pass to Marklay for a score, but it was too late for them to recover.

Stepinac 24 - Mount St. Michael's I9 After the loss to St. Francis, Stepinac had to win their remaining two league games to gain a tie in the CHSFL. They next encountered the Mount in the most thrilling game of the year. The Crusaders battled to an i8-6 lead on a pair of touchdowns by Choquette and another by Tony Cic- cone. However the missing of extra points nearly proved disasterous in the final quarter as the Mounties took to the air and scored twice. With 75 seconds left in the game they led i9-l8. Then Davis manifested his superb quarterbacking qualities. With a minute left he hurled a fantastic pass to Choquette, who, sur- rounded by three Mount defensemen, caught the pig- skin on the six yard line. Two plays later Davis threw another perfect jump pass which Marklay snatched in the end zone with ten seconds remaining in the contest. ,gms , ..x,.,.4 Trapp dives for Mount fumble. "Stomper" bears down on Stepinac 25 - Chaminade 6 A capacity crowd of alumni, parents and students witnessed the final game of the season in which the Knights defeated the Chaminade Flyers and tied St. Francis Prep for the Cl-lSFL championship. The Crusaders scored early in the game. After Choquette electrified the crowd with a 56 yard gallop up the middle of the field, the Knights pushed to the l3 yard marker. Then Davis launched a spiral to Mark- lay for six points. Moments later a Flyer fumble set up the second Stepinac touchdown and Kerwin bulled over from the one. After another Chaminade fumble in the third quar- ter, Davis threw a 42ya rd touchdown pass to Choquette. Later in that period Kerwin culminated a 62 yard drive by bucking over the goal line for the final Crusader score of the year. As the score was 25-O, Coach Werder emptied his bench and the substitutes held the Flyers scoreless until the final seconds when the visitors' left halfback, Bill LaBorne, scored from the three yard line.

Mikulak, Managers Hampered by lack of veterans, the outlook for the i955 season appeared grim, Prior to the Aquinas game, the chances of winning a single game seemed poor and the attainment of the Catholic High School Football League championship was expected by none. The opening game in Rochester proved the pre-season predictions to be wrong. Possibly the upstate team could have been defeated were it not for the fact that Choquette's 94 yard touchdown run was called back. This penalty eventually gave Aquinas the winning touchdown and was defi- nitely a moral blow to the Knights. With successive victories over Fairfield and Hayes, student interest surged. Students and friends flocked to witness the downfall of lona. But in the two weeks interval before the St. Francis Prep tilt complacency infiltrated into the team and the school. Few students both- ered to make the trip to Brooklyn and this lack of interest was partially responsible for our only loss in the Cl-ISFL. A cloud of gloom hovered over Stepinac until the Crusaders cour- ageously battled to conquer the Mount in the final moments of the game. This victory made the i955 season unique in Stepinac history as it was the first time that the "Big Three"- Hayes, lona and Mount fell victims to a Stepinac football team. Chaminade was the final hurdle to be jumped before the dream of a tie for the Cl-lSFL title would be a reality and on Thanksgiving Day the Flyers were sent home to Long lsland in complete defeat. As the vic- tors carried Mr. Werder off the field, all the splendor and glory of the best football season in Stepinac history was evident. O l8 . . .

Playing an abbreviated season due to scheduling and weather difficulties, Brother Lucas' Junior Varsity football team turned in a fine record of three wins and one loss. Lead by star quarterback Bill Plunkett, the J. V. Team turned back Iona Prep l3-l2 in the opener. After two long runs and a faked pass, Plunkett lugged the pigskin over left end for the first touchdown of the season. The placement was wide. Iona came back with a score in the second period, but the placement was blocked by the alert Stepinac defense. ln the third period, end Joe Malasardi recovered a fumble on the lona lO. George White bulled over for the score and Plunkett passed for the winning extra point. Iona came back for a touchdown in the last quarter, but after the Crusaders received the return kickoff they put the ball deep into the Iona territory as the game ended. Stepinac suffered its lone defeat of the season at the hands of the New Rochelle J. V. team. The Purple Wave scored two quick touchdowns in the first quarter and one in the second and were then just satisfied to hold Stepinac to that score. The brightest spot for the losers was the running of Bud Kinderman who would Bill Choquette downed by Mount defensemen. have gone all the way several times if he had had a few key blocks. TheJTttle Crusaders scored in every period as they rolled over St. Mary's of Greenwich 25-l4. Brian Col- lins and Bud Kinderman each chipped in two touch- downs for the winners. A lateral by Bill Plunkett just as he was being hit to Kinderman set up the first score. Collins bulled over for the touchdown and followed soon after with another before St. Mary's scored on a 65 yard drive. St. Mary's scored again in the third period to lead briefly l4-l3. Soon afterwards, how- ever, Kinderman went 70 yards to put the game on ice. The little Crusaders finished the season with a 25-O romp over Mount St. Michael's J. V. team. After a stalemate in the first period, the Stepinac team erupted for l9 points on a line smash by Collins, a pass to Harry Clark, a shoestring catch by Bill Choquette and a conversion by George Ciaramella. Bud Kinder- man ran 69 yards in the last period for the final tally. Outstanding for their line play throughout the sea- son were tackles Don Noonan and Tom Griffin, guards Terry O'Neil and Bob Pesce, ends Clark and John Shea and center Frank lgnac. -av 4 AI Page TRACK 4 WY .nba ri' Tom Harklns 102 Walt Gomlicker Tom Dunleavy John L.

Verdisco crossed the finish line second and the other nine var- sity men finished among the top 25 runners as they won the meet for the third consecutive year. Three days later they defeated St. Francis Prep in a dual meet at Van Cortlandt Park. Verisco, Christiansen, and Groc- cia tied for first in a dead heat. -The Knights lost their first meet on October i5 when they placed fourth among 45 schools in the New York University meet. A week later they firmly estab- lished their county supremacy as they beat i2 schools in the lona Invitational run at Tibbetts Brook Park. Verdisco took second spot behind John l-loar of Sacred Heart, and Christiansen, Groccia and Weis captured the next three positions. Stepinac's harriers topped a field of l6 schools in the Bronx - Manhattan - Westchester championships. Verdisco won the individual crown and set a school record of i3 242 for the ZVZ mile Van Cortlandt course. ln the Eastern lnterscholastic Championships the Knights were runner-ups in the field of 92 schools.

With Verdisco and Casson slipping on the muddy course they were only able to take fifth in the final meet of the season. The overall record: 6 victories-3 trophies, one second place, a fourth, and one fifth position. The track team inaugurated the indoor season by finishing sixth in the Catholic Relay Carnival as Paul Choquette placed second in the shot put and the sprint medley team of Sal D'lanni, John Sullivan, Al Hoddi- nott and Dick Weis picked up two points in fourth position. l-loddinott placed fourth in the high hurdles in the Bishop Loughlin games the following week. The Crusaders lost their first dual meet in two years to Mount St. Michaels The outcome of the meet depended upon the six lap relay, but the Stepinac team fell twice on the sharp turns. Thirds by Hoddinott and Choquette in the hurdles and shot put, respectively, enabled the Knights to place eighth in the Hayes Games. A week later Hoddinott and Choquette again copped third places in their spe- cialties at the New York University Meet and took sixth position for Stepinac in a field of l34 schools. The team, capturing six first places and 43 points completely dominated the Westchester lndoor Cham- pionships. Choquette, Walt Gomlicker and Hoddinott smashed records in the shot put, high jump and 50 yard low hurdles events. Weis won the 500, Verdisco captured the mile and six lap relay team of Tom Dun- leavy, Tom Harkins, Matt Strachan and Keith Ammer- man was the other winner. Father Walter Murray's Freshman swept all three places in their section of the six lap relay. Choquette and Hoddinott were the only scorers from Westchester County in the National Scholastic Championships at Madison Square Garden.

This was the most impressive win by Mr. Sullivan's proteges and was easily the greatest single achievement in the school's eight- year athletic history. Posting 4l V2 points, the Cru- saders beat out runner-up St. Francis Prep by nine Seconds and thirds pile up points. A sprinter gives his all. tallies and also l5 other schools for the much coveted trophy. The team was trailing during most of the meet until it was sparked by victories in the hurdles events where it picked up l6 points. Art Cortesi edged out teammate Walter Gottwald for first place in the 220 yard low hurdles with a winning time of 25.4. "Sandy" Hoddinott captured second place in the l20 yard high hurdles, running the distance in 0:l6.7, and was im- mediately followed by Tom Harkins. Brian Brent won second place honors in the 220 yard dash in 0123.3 seconds. Another second place was taken by the 880 yard relay of Paul Choquette, Dick Weis, Joe Maloney, and Kevin Murphy with a time of l 2355. The Crusaders performed very well in the field events, scoring a total of l5 points. Brian Brent jumped 22 feet 6 inches in the broad jump, enough to tie Ted Johnsonlof Rice for first place. Cortesi took a fourth in this event, leaping Zi feet lO inches. Cortesi added another four points to his total of ll for the day by heaving the javelin l66 feet for a second place. ln the shot put, Paul Choquette placed fourth with a heave of 52 feet 2 inches. He scored another three points when he tossed the discus ll9 feet, finishing third best. Fred Schwitz gained the final point and one-half as he tied for fourth place in the pole vault. Of course this great honor could not have been achieved had it not been for Cardinal Spellman's be- nevolence and generosity in granting the school funds to build a track four years ago. Special recognition and high praise must be given to Brother Ralph and Brother Douglas lC.F.X.l who coached the field team. Also Father Thomas O'Keefe and Father Walter Murray should be commended for starting an interest in track during the freshman years of these boys and preparing them for the varsity. Finally, congratulations are to be extended to Coach Joseph Sullivan, who, with perse- verance and excellent tutelage, has worked with the trackmen during the past four years.

On Friday evening, November 26, the l955-56 quintet made its debut in the traditional game with the Alumni. Past stars Dick Elston, Ronnie Semenza, and ll3 Lohm ksf m we Dick Carroll provided laughs and displayed some bril- liant basketball before the varsity, led by Paul Kinsley's l5 points, overcame them in the final quarter and won 48-4l. C saders opened their Catholic A week later the ru High School League play against Manhattan Prep but the height advantage of the visitors led to the 69-53 downfall of Stepinac. Cn the following Monday, Karl Lehmann, Jack DePalo, and Paul Kinsley paced the ' r over Fairfield Prep. During Knights to a 56-54 victo y that week Stepin ' d CHSAA game to Hayes, 53-37. Lehmann and Marklay combined for Zl and l7 points apiece and sparked the 75-53 rout of Scar- borough. The Crusaders then won their next two tilts with the Mount and Fordham as Lehmann accounted for 26 and 24 points respectively in each game. Step- inac led the Mount 36-Zl at the half and 58-4l at the three quarter mark. DePalo, Kinsley, and Marklay then left the game on fouls and the Knights just man- aged to repeal the rallying Mounties as they won by a 75-70 score. Stepinac had little trouble disposing of Fordham 7l -55. These were the last games of I955 d the record stood at five wins and two defeats. ac dropped its secon an Marklay Qhdes one in After the Christmas holidays the cagers met All Hallows on the opponents diminutive court and were defeated 74-64 despite Lehmann's 26 points. On the tenth of January the Knights romped over St. Helena's 82-69 as Lehmann hit his season's high of 32 tallies. The Crusaders were winning 36-29 at the half but the scrappy St. Helena's team fought back and trailed by only two points at the end of the next quarter. Stepinac then awakened and bombarded the net for 29 points in the final period. Manhattan Prep was next on the schedule. Al- though Stepinac was leading l7-l4 at the end of the initial period, their lack of height in comparison with the lofty Prep squad accounted for their 79-52 defeat. The Crusaders played St. Simon Stock on January l7 but the New York City team was no match for them, as Stepinac returned to the winning column with a 6l -36 victory. However they lost their second game 'with Hayes 60-53. The Knights kept within e few points of the Cardinals during most of the game but the Hayesmen streaked out in front in the final period. Stepinac massacred Iona 75-59 in their first meet- ing with the New Rochelle school. Victory for the Cru- saders was never doubtful, as Lehmann, Markley and DePalo bewildered the Gaels with their splendid play- making and the deadly accuracy of their shots, On February 2 they again squeezed Mount St. Michael's, this time winning 59-5. The score remained close throughout the contest except in the second period when the Knights held a 33-22 advantage. The Mount again rallied late in the game but the fine defensive ll5 4l i ini- riave - - Up in 6fm5- tactics of Marklay and Lehmann restrained their at- tack. John Steppe, Tom Fetherston and the All l-lallows squad again ravaged the Crusaders' victory skein. Steppe accounted for 38 points and Fetherston for 26 in the 87-63 Stepinac loss, Karl Lehmann sprained his ankle in the final period and had to miss the next three games. The effect of his injury was evident when an inspired St. l-lelena's quintet, routed in their first out- ing with the Crusaders, trampled them 84-58. Mark- lay and Depalo split 32 points but the remainder of the team had trouble finding the range, The courtmen bounced back from their defeat by St. l-lelena's and whipped Ossining 80-65.

Pre- Qame bliss! bounding enabled the Crusaders to surge ahead in the final two periods. lnjury again struck the boardmen as they were relieved of the valuable service of sophomore star Paul Kinsley as the result of an ankle injury. On February 24 disaster fell upon the cage team as they dropped their first contest to a public school since l95l. The Red Raiders from Scarsdale overcame a Sl - Kinsley Qfabs 3 'elm 39 half time deficit as they tied the game up 64-64 at the final buzzer and won 68-64 in overtime. The Cru- saders dropped their final tilt of the regular season on February 27 to Iona 63-59 after again wasting a score- board advantage. l-lowever, weariness from the initial game in the Westchester Private-Parochial Tournament the night before was a determining factor in their col- lapse against the Gaels. The Knights auspiciously began their competition in the Westchester Private-Parochial Tournament by overcoming Sacred Heart 64-58. ln the quarter finals Stepinac successfully stopped 6' lO" Bob Jackson and the New York Military Academy. The Crusaders scored from the floor at a torrid pace and sank 25 out Lehm ' . anns magic touch, We lost the coach! of 28 charity shots. Lehmann and Marklay put in 26 and 25 points each as DePalo and Kinsley thwarted the New Yorkers with crafty defensive work. Maury Flood grabbed many rebounds off the finger tips of Jackson and accounted for l4 points himself. When Stepinac had mustered a 25 point advantage in the third period the substitutes took over and iced the game 83-76, despite a late Academy surge. SODHO more spotlight on M CC-Ijrr Freshman Basketball The future in basketball at Stepinac is a big question mark, judging by the season the freshmen had. Off the record it was poor with ten wins and fourteen losses. But Brother Alois chose to experiment this year rather than try to build up an impressive number of wins. Find- ing that the material was not nearly as promis- ing as in past years, he went along with the big men and those most eager to study, behave, practice and learn. Whether the experiment was a success or not will be known only in the next three years. But if the players continue the improvement they showed over the year and if those who were on and off the eligibility list all season for disciplinary or scholastic rea- sons have learned a valuable lesson, the pros- pects can be termed bright. Brian Collins would get the most valuable award of the frosh players. Switching between the corner and center he was consistently the team's high scorer. David Rae, Jim McDermott and Dennie Woodman alternated as the other back court men. John Smith, Tim Smyth, Pat Grosso, Bill Coldrick and Don Hende divided the front positions pretty evenly during the season. Smyth was the most improved player on the club, developing a good drive, set, and jump shot. Dennis O'Keefe and Brian McAuley were the most promising bench strength. J. V.

Three days later the Knights dropped a close game to Sleepy Hollow, 3-2. Crusader bats began to boom against Man- hattan Prep as the Knights won 8-l.

A lack of pitching finesse and a plethora of batting power appeared to be characteristic of this year's baseball team prior to opening day, Jim Coughlin was the only pitcher who saw var- sity action last season and Coach Werder had to bring George Marklay from the third base posi- tion to add to his hurling staff. Meanwhile, Jack DePalo returned to second base, Karl Le'hmann to first,-and Joe Phelan to left field. Senior Bert Wray filled in at the backstop position, while sophomores Joe Bernaducci, Jim Mulhare, and Art Malesardi held down the shortstop, right and center field spots. Marklay played third when Coughlin or Maury Flood performed on the mound. DePalo watches one go by. aducci, dramatically, belted a homerun in the final inning with Jim Mulhare on base. After successive losses to Iona and Sleepy Hol- low and two cancelled games with Fordham and the Mount, the Crusader played Hayes on Ascen- sion day. Bill Revellese's homer in the second inning with Joe Phelan on second put Stepinac ahead 2-O.

Q 4' Neil Mandell l g ggi W 2 fi This year s tennis team headed by Captain Bob Mendel has the distinction of being Q the first one to win a trophy for Archbishop Stepinac. This was accomplished in the fall ' when points gained by Bob Mendel, reaching the semi-finals, John Fierro, reaching the fl quarter-finals, and the team of Mike Hannon and Jack Sinnott winning the doubles divi- .,,,! sion, added up to give Stepinac a team victory in the Catholic High School Athletic- As- Paul Siconolfi sociation Tournament. This spring saw the team once again immersed in a full schedule of matches. The majority of these are Catholic League matches, while occasionally Fr. Mathews squired the racquetmen around the county to play other private schools. Stepinac once again entered the Fordham Invitational Tournament as well as other interscholastic encounters. The netmen started poorly, losing their first three matches to Xavier, Scarborough and Fordham, but recovered to even the score by defeating All Hallows, Iona and Brook- lyn Prep. As usual, Fr. Mathews had a strong reserve. Following seniors Mendel, Marklay and Siconolfi will be juniors Sinnott, Fierro, l-lannan, Nunoz, Schelhammer and Freshman Van Eyck. This depth and a large freshman team promise a strong court squad for the future, and successful seasons to come. Freshman Tennis 129 Front Row' R Walsh, S. McMillan, T. Pierce. CHSAA Trophy Back Row: M. Buckley, Smith, K. Grasso, A. Vanliyck, Captain. Coached and moderated by Brother Justin, the Stepinac mermen had a rather disappointing season. They were led by backstroker Dick Egan, breaststroker Jack Munger, freestylers Jim Flynn, and Gerry Mc- Grath and the diving of Bob Cercena and George Rob- ertson. Valuable support came from Don Lareau, Bob Dohrenwend, Doug Robertson, Ed Mullee, Bill Cronin and Paul Tegan. The Crusaders opened the season early in Novem- ber with a loss to Bishop Loughlin. They then hit their winning stride with two straight wins over St. Augustines and Holy Trinity. This was unfortunately followed by seven losses in a row as the "wetbacks" succumbed to Fordham Prep, St. Johns Prep, Cardinal Hayes, Brooklyn Prep, St. Francis Prep, Mamaroneck High School and Iona Prep. ' Relief finally came in the form of the C.H.S.A,A. Novice Swimming Championships in which the Cru- saders finished second. Following the Novice Cham- pionships, the mermen bowed to Peekskill Military Academy and then defeated Peekskill High School. The C.H.S.A.A. Senior Championships followed, but the Crusaders, hampered by illness, could do no better than finish eighth. The next week brought a victory over New Rochelle High School. No sooner were the Crusaders hopes beginning to rise when in the West- chester Private and Parochial School Championships they finished near the bottom of the list. Perhaps the main reason for the mermen's poor record this past season was the lack of adequate prac- tice facilities. lt is hoped that this situation will be rectified. sq., ..,: A .. . K .Q J.

Founder of Stigrnatine Fathers, Verona, Italy With the destruction vented upon Europe by the French Revolution in l789, the human misery that followed pursued its usual unfortunate path inflicting great injury on those least responsible-the poor children. A heart-sick observer of this human misery was a young Italian priest, Gaspar Bertoni. Ordained in l799, the same time that Napoleon seized power 'in France, Father Bertoni, an assistant in a parish in the city of Verona, determined to do what he could to alleviate the wretched- ness of the children of the city. His compassion took concrete form in the establishment of Oratories or Youth Centers wherein he fed, clothed and taught a trade, as well as the rudiments of their religion, to young boys. Realizing, however, that his work could not remain forever under his personal guidance, Father Bertoni determined to found a religious congregation to carry on his work after his death. On November Fourth, l8l6, the young priest, together with another priest about his own age, Father John Mary Marani, and Paul Zanoli, a layman who was to become the first brother in the infant Congregation, went to live in the House of Stigmata. From this beginning was born the Congregation of the Priests of the Sacred Stigmata of Our Lord Jesus Christ, commonly called the Stigmatines. Since religious societies had been outlawed by the French government in Verona, the new Congrega- tion did not adapt any distinctive habit, wearing only the ordinary garb of the local diocesan clergy. To this day, they follow that same custom. After a most exemplary life, Gaspar Bertoni died on June l2, l853. His cause for Sainthood was introduced after his death and Holy Mother Church set her seal of approval upon his many virtues by declaring him the Venerable Gaspar Bertoni in l906. The Stigmatines are a Religious family composed of two branches, priests and coadjutor brothers, both of which groups wear the same re- ligious habit and follow the same rule. They are bound together by the desire to save souls, to aid the Church in the person of the Bishops and to follow the ideals and objectives of their saintly Founder. Specifically: the primary works of the Congregation--or what are called the "ordinary duties"-can be summed up in the two words: preaching and teaching. It was in fulfillment of this secondary purpose that the Stigmatines first came to the Untied States at the beginning of the twentieth century. ln that period, a great wave of immigrants came to his country, nearly nine millions of them. A great percentage of these people did not speak English and without priests who spoke their own language could very easily have been lost to the faith. In response to the urgent appeals of the Bishops of Springfield, Boston and New York, Stigmatine priests came here and established parishes for the newly-arrived Italians. Through the years other assignments were given: more priests for more parishes, chaplains for the armed services, chaplains for the penal institutions of the state, missionaries for the "no-priest" land of the Southwest. The Stigmatines responded to all these requests, and in so doing fulfilled their secondary objective, aid to the Bishops.

Since World War ll, however, they have been able to branch out somewhat in their primary field. ln I948 a contingent was sent to the Marianas Islands in the mid-Pacific to staff a Seminary there for the Vicariate of Guam. In the same year a group came to Archbishop Stepinac High School to aid the diocesan clergy in educating young men in Westchester. ln l952 a summer camp, staffed by the Stigmatine seminarians as counsellors and directed by Stigmatine priests and brothers, was opened in the Berkshires for boys between the ages of 8 and l5. Shortly atter that a retreat house was opened for week-end retreats and from this same house a dozen priests operated in giving missions and novenas all over eastern United States. A year or so ago, the Congregation, despite the pressing need ot men for its other projects, nonetheless generously responded to the call of the Holy Father and sent another group of priests to the missions of Thailand where they began the construction and operation of a school whose students body numbers over four-hundred-all Buddhists! 133 Memorabilia The students back up the team.
