Mr. Raskob is a living example of what America offers to earnest and determined young men in the business world. Mrs. Raskob typiiies the home- loving mother. The large family of thirteen chilf dren, three of whom, William, Inez, and Catharine, are deceased, represent on the maternal side the ninth generation of American citizens. Where it not for this family's exemplary liberality the beautiful estate and home on the Delaware River would not have become the site of a Catholic institu- tion of secondary education. No doubt their thoughts often return to Archmere where they lived for so many years. With sincere gratitude, then, and heartfelt appreciation, we offer the Raskob family this small memento and token of the years 1937-1938 at Archmere Preparatory School. ARCHMERE AND DELAWARE I-IISTGRY Since very important anniversaries have been celebrated in Delaware during the past school year, it is extremely fitting that we recall and relate their historical significance and at the same time tell the story of the beautiful estate and home which Mr. john 1. Raskob established and which has now become Archmere Preparatory School for Boys. We will draw our material from the Raskob-Green Record Book and encyclopedias. Before the coming of the white man, the fertile and verdant lands of northern Delaware and southern Pennsylvania along the Delaware were the hunting-grounds of the Leni-Lenape Indians. They were of Algonquin stock and their name signifies "real men." Evidence of their mode of' life was found in the spring of 1912. At that time a well-preserved arrow head was turned up when excavations were made for the garden. The settlement of Delaware has a very interesting and involved history. A Dutch colony at Lewes Creek in 1631 was a complete failure when the Indians mas- sacred the entire settlement. The Dutch claim to the territory was based on Henry Hudson's voyage of discovery in 1609. Three hundred years ago this June, in 1638, two ships carrying some fifty Swedish emigrants entered Delaware Bay and chose the present site of Wilmington for their new home. The colony was called "Nova Suediai' and a Fort Christina, named in honor of their young queen, was built. New Sweden was dominated by the Dutch East India Company and in 1664, along with New Amsterdam Cnow New Yorkb, fell into the hands of the English. For many years the territory of Delaware was claimed both by Lord Baltimore, "leader of the Maryland Pilgrims" and by William Penn. Mrs. Raskob is a direct descendant of a passenger on Governor Leonard Calvert's ship, the Ark, in 1634. Thomas Greene, the ancestor we speak of, became the second Governor of the Province of Maryland in 1647. Mason and Dixon, the famous surveyors, settled the boundary controversy when they laid the east and south lines of the "Three Counties." The Lenape Indians made their first treaty with William Penn at Shackamazon in 1682. His grant of land extended somewhat south of Newcastle, Del. What is today Claymont was originally in Penn's Woods. According to historical documents William Penn's son and grandson, Thomas and William, were his heirs and succes- sors. In 1720 they surveyed the land between Naaman's Creek and the Old Plantation Cnear Holly Gakl, and between the King's Road-the present Lincoln Highway- and the Delaware River. This tract was sold to Joseph Grubb, john Buckley, and Benjamin Moulden. The land assigned to Mr. Grubb and his heirs contained the present Archmere. Turning now to the national scene, we find that Delaware's existence as a sovercicin state, distinct from Pennsylvania, came about by charter on October 28, 1701. Seventy-five years later the state constitution was framed. In the same century the most stirring events in our nation's history was taking place-the Declaration of 8 . JY i mu? ' . - . - , ,M.mx,. ag THE MAIN BUILDING ". . I a visitor once inside the gates, and especially one who has traveled in Italy and Florence, would at once note the resemblance of the porte-cochere to the one which stands before the Pazzi Chapel." Raskoh-Green Record Book. Independence, the Revolutionary War, the Critical Period, and the adoption of the Constitution. In May, 1787, the Constitutional Convention niet at Independence Hall to consider the formation of the United States. Cn December 7, 1787, the State of Delaware led the way in ratifying the notable document which is the foundation of American Democracy. During these momentous events the land which is now Archmere changed hands several times, until in 1872 it was bought by Mr. George M. Troutman. I-Ie was the first to call it Archmere, in reference to the natural arch formed by an opening in the grove. It affords a beautiful view across the Pennsylvania Railroad, the Dela- ware River, to the distant shores of New Jersey. As one gazes through the arch he may see one of the speedy electric express trains, which run between New York and Washington, or, on the river, an ocean-going freighter plying upstream to the port of Philadelphia. Cn August 1, 1910, Mr. John Raskob purchased the land along with its lar e frame mansion from Mr. Troutman's dau hter Mrs. Vir inia Smith. The 3 former house stood in the same Spot as the present school building. In drawing up the plans for the new structure it was decided to follow the classic architecture of the Italian Renaissance. As the Raskob-Green Record Book so aptly states, it was to be "a home of Italian architecture with its simplicity of line without, its artistic beauties and homelike atmosphere within, but loveliest of all, its 9 patio with its shadowed loggias, soothing fountain and arched doorways and windows through which one could see from the road to the rivere open like an honest face." The central court spoken of was to he protected from inclement weather hy a hril- liantly-colored movahle skylight. Mr. Alexander Harper of New York City was appointed architect. The Raskoh family lived at Archmere for twenty years. Among the noted guests who visited them were, in 1924, Herr Alois Lang, who held the role of Christ in the Qherammageau Passion Play, and Mr. Alfred E. Smith of New York, at the end of his presidential campaign in 1928. Archmere is the hirthplace of most of the Raskoh children. ln 1930 the family moved to Centreville, Maryland. The Rt. Rev. B. l-1. Pennings, Ahhot of the Norhertine Crder in the United States, arranged with Mr. Raskoh for the estahlishment of Archmere Preparatory School in the spring of 1932. The Very Rev. M. Mclfeough, O. Praem., was ap' pointed Headmaster and on Septemher 14th of that year nineteen students were admitted to classes. The Most Rev. Edmund Fitzmaurice, Bishop of the Diocese of NXfilmington, presided at impressive dedication ceremonies on Qct. 12th, when the school was placed under the patronage of Qur Lady of the Immaculate Conception.

Holvlvy: Boats ' Arriving in his ,Iunior year from what he views as the major city of the East, Bill soon ingratiated himself with the memhers of the faculty and the students hy means of his cheery smile. Pleasant in personality, Bill was during the past year the successful editor of the Green Arch and though not of a strong literary persuasion, he produced a very good paper Suffice it to say that Bill has the firmly-rooted reputation of heing an all- around good fellow. Another picture of him may he seen among the snapshots on page 47. GEORGE PAUL BISHOP ..BiM7,, 821 Welliiwgt twit R cvzit I Baltii iitur e, Md. Holvlvy: Photography ' Bipp came to us as a third year man from the sunny south, Baltimore to he exact. After a hrief initiation he learned to speak our language. We found that his friendship was hard to gain, hut can never he lost once it is acquired. His ideal principle of action is: "Live and let live." As for studies, he says that he would like to know a little ahout every suhject and a lot ahout one. Science coursesfffhemistry and Biology - are his most interesting, and he is fond of travel. THE PATMD 1938 ANTHONY LEO CELESTE .i-I-Um., 24 Walnut Street Glen Falls, N. Y. Hulnlvy: Ht mxmx ework ' lnstead of being what his name signi- fies Tony is a man of the worldfpracti' cal, dependable, and sociable. Wlieii he opens his mouth to speak, all may well listeng if it weren't worth listening to, he wouldn't have said it. All things con- sidered---including his skill on the basket- ball floor- Tony is a young man of ex' ceptionally fine character. Miss Sweeney will vouch for this statement. The folks in Glen Falls may well be proud of Tony. CHARLES HOWARD DARRAH "Chiu-lie" 1332 Market Street Wilmington, Del. Holvlvy: Drawing ' A remarkable thing about Charlie is the fact that even under the strongest competition he has attained the distinc- tion of being regarded as the "Class Witf His humor is of the infectious type f penetrating and persuasive. Far from being sedate or quiet, he will find it not at all difficult, when he opens a dental office, to apply Cardinal Newman's well- known definition of a gentlemann one who never gives pain. As a scholar he is diligent and studious. 1938 THE PATICD VICTOR EMMANUEL DEBERARDINIS "Crump" 1300 Providence Avenue Chester, Pa. Hulvlvy: Sculpturing ' Any attempt to summarize Vic's achievements during his prep school career would necessarily read like a movie in technic-color. Also, a record of his mishaps would look like the front page of rhe Chester Times on July 5th. How- ever, his ahility to "come hack" even in the face of his unfortunate accident has won his class-mates' sincere admiration and esteem. Endowed with a keen sense of the ridiculous, he quickly grasps the pleasant side of any situation and makes the most ot' it. For him we predict success. JAMES HUBERT HOUSER r.7-cmk.. ISIO Delaware Avenue Nxfilmington, Del. Holvlvy. Golf ' Tank is one of those rare individuals who combine devotion to study with prowess in the field of sports. A sturdy athlete, he has taken a very active part in foothall, hasehall, golf, and howling. Throughout his prep-school days his name has appeared on the Honor Roll consistently. His is a conservative spirit. l-le makes friends with ready ahility and is willing to lend a helping hand. These qualities make him an outstanding mem- lwer of the class. THE PATMD 1938 ANTHONY JOSEPH JURICH "Flick" Dutton Mill Road Chester, Pa. Holwhy: Collecting money ' "He who works shall succeed" is Hick's motto, and he tries to carry it into effect in every activity. There is a mis- chievous twinkle in his keen, hrown eyes. Is there any wonder, then, that occasion- ally "Mischief will out"? His imitations of Tizzie Lisch and various farm animals are superh. Seriously, Hick is as fleet as a deer on the gridiron. We are sorry to see him graduate, hut we know he will quickly climh up the ladder of success. PARKE SMITH MORELAND "Bud" 1232 W. Fourth Street Vlfilmington, Del. Holvlvy: Reading ' Quiet consideration and seriousness are Bud's predominate traits. He hails from Tower Hill School at Xllfilmington and plans to follow his father in the pro- fession of dentistry. Always willing to ohlige, he is never reluctant in doing some favor for his numerous friends. His modest, unassuming manner make him a truly likeahle person, and his dogged de- termination assure us that he will attain the goal for which he so earnestly strives. 1938 THE PATIO ROBERT JOSEPH lvicGOVERN ..P1mL,hy,. 1705 Maryland Avenue Wilmington, Del. Holvlvy: Me 111Lv rizing poetry ' Loyalty to one's home town is an almost universal virtue, hut in Boh, more commonly called Punchy, it is raised to a superlative degree. To him NX!ilmington is the huh ofthe universe. He came To Archmere this year from Salesianum. Unlike most of his classmates, his pct dislikes are: going to class and doing, his homework. In class his hest suhject is lvlathematics. His pronciency in figures. indicating as it does strong reasoning powers, is amazing. JOHN DAVID MCSWEENEY "Mac" 1215 Clover Lane Chester, Pa. Holvlvy: Baselwall ' This lwoy from Chester made his prep- school dehut with characteristic quiet- ness, hut hy virtue of a pleasant person- ality and a capacity for steady, persistent work soon made his presence felt in several fields of activity. Not only along scholastic lines did he hring his well- tempered ahilities to hear upon his work, hut in the field of social and campus activities he succeeded hoth in attaining a high position, and in making many friends. ln other words, xlohn has the reputation of heing and decidedly is a good fellow and a good worker. THE PATHD 1938 JOSEPH ALOYSIUS MCCORMICK "Buster" 101 S. Fairview Avenue Upper Darhy, Pa. Holvlvyz Arguing ' All through four hearty years Buster has heen the hane of the class with his constant hoosting of Ford Motors. Buster will argue on any topic, at any time, just for the sake of argument, and most of the time he will win. As a scholarship man, joe has more than surpassed the expecta- tions held for him. His many friends and all his classmates feel sure that he will succeed at anything he tackles in the future. JOSEPH MICHAEL McLAl IGHLIN "loc" 2824 W. 10th Street Chester, Pa. Holvlvy: Reading ' joe has heen, without a douht, the outstanding student in scholastic attain- ment in this class of '38 He has huilt up a i1iOSt enviahle record: during his four years at Archmere his name has never heen missing from the first honors list truly a great achievement. Besides heing a hard worker in class, he has displayed his acting ahility hy participating in several school plays. lt is certain that when Aloe leaves this ,lune the school will have graduated one of the lwest students it has ever had or will have. 1938 THE PATIQ EDWARD JAMES OAKES "Muscles" 802 Edgemont Avenue Chester, Pa. Hohlvy: Buffalo ' As a sophomore Ed appeared in our midst and commenced then and there to prove his value as a classmate. His versatility is astounding. As an orator and master of diction he is unexcelled hy any student in the learned halls ofArcl1- mere. A congevial person, Ed is chiefly esteemed for his ready wit and humor. His ahility to make one laugh will endear him for all time in the hearts of his chums. MICHAEL DAVID CTCONNOR "Mike" 1428 C tmrm gole tlnmi Street Li lixx' ood, Pa. Huhhy: Dancing ' One of the four year memhers of the Class of l938, Mike and his serious manner have heen a familiar sight on the Archmere campus. Though smaller than the average of the class, he has always heen in the first hraclcet of athletes, par- ticularly as a foothall quarterhack and ace shortstop in the baseball nine. Speak- ing little of himself, yet possessing an aura of quiet confidence, we have no douht that Mike will easily reach any goal to which he aspires, THE PATH? 1938 JAMES PETER WHELAN ULN NGN Boothwyn Road Boothwyn, Pa, Holvliy: Collecting tropical fish ' La Nez is the affectionate name he- stowed on .lames hy his classmates f and only they can use it without incurring the wrath of an usually strong Irish temper. Throughout our four years Nez was "the power hehind the throne." Wlieii an activity needed incentive, he was there to start the hall rolling. lr was this ener- getic spirit which caused the class to look to him as the leader in all undertakings. ln sports he excelled at end in foothall and in the pitcher's hox in hasehall. LEON JOSEPH WOUICIECHOSKI ..WUgic,. 2508 W. Third Street Chester, Pa. Holvlvy: Collecting sta iiii ps ' Musical talent is one of Wtvgie's many ahilities, even though he is very modest ahout it. This includes hoth classical and popular fields. He can play the violin and also sing the latest song hits. A hig fellow, he has heen for the last two years the sergeant-at-arms for the class of 1938. His scintillating wit has frequentlyiforced the classroom into paroxysms of laughter. On the serious side, his main character- istic is constant determinationfe a quality which will carry him to success. 1938 THE PATIC Buck rmu: Victor Phillips, Anthony Serpe, Randolph King, john Donovan, -lohn Karpinol.

They were a jovial group and quickly got in step with the Archmere spirit, under the direction of Father Vanderheiden. Serious in studies, active in extra-curricular endeavors, cosmopolitan in viewpoint, the postfgraduates will he remembered long hy the younger students.

At their first meeting under the supervision of Father Hurley, their class adviser, the memhers elected officers: john Dewson and Vincent Tigani, President and Vice-president respectively, Francis Mullen, Secretary, and Raymond Traceski, Treasurer. The spirit ofthe class is seen hy their representation in outside activities, especially journal- ism and athletics. The traditional school rings with red stones were selected and purchased after much discussion. As the PATIO goes to press, the class is preparing for the social high-light ofthe year-the junior Prom.

Under Father Diny's direction we selected the class officers: Robert Griner was made Presi- dentg Albert Ewald, Vice-presidentg Fred Neeson, Secretaryg and Henry Winchester, Treasurer. Throughout the year we have tried to maintain the highest standards in school spirit both in studies and in sports, as the Honor Roll and the team linefups amply testify. ln November we bought class sweaters, thereby making ourselves the envy of the school and starting a fad which will undoubtedly become a tradition. The year has been a very pleasant one and we will strive to make our remaining years at prep school live up to this precedent. 25 TI-IE PATIO 1938 Hack raw: Xlllilliani Sweeney, Thomas Maloney, Alfredo Trueha, Rohert DeCosin,1ohn Iviulshenock, Anthony Rosowicz, -lames Peters, ,lohn Henlcels, Vifilliam Camphell, joseph Cvilmartin.

Hurley in the Chapel. It took a few weeks to hecome acclimated to Archmerian customs and to wear off the initiations of the Sophs. A young, inspir- ing squad of gridiron warriors answered Coach Cahrey's call for a Midget foothall squad, which played through an undefeated season. Baskethall also found them ready for competition. The class is splendidly represented in the Herman joseph Society, as well as in the other student organizations.

The Herman loseph Society Witli the purpose of grouping the altar boys together and placing them under the protection of a patron, Father Hinkes, on February 28th, founded the Blessed Herman joseph Society at Archmere. At the first meeting of the society, the following were elected to office: President, Charles 1V1cGoverng Vice-President, William Noth- nagleg Secretary, john Lynn, and Treasurer, Paul Riley. Blessed Herman joseph was chosen patron because he is a Norbertine Saint, noted for his angelic purity and piety. Born at Cologne, at an early age he commenced his studies in the Norbertine Abbey at Steinfeld. He died in the year 1241, and in 1626 the process of his canonization was begun. He was the author of the beautiful hymn to the Sacred Heart, "Ad Cor Jesu Salutatiof' Since the societ was begun, the bo s have realized more and more the great Y 5 Y . privilege they have of serving at the Holy Sacrifice and at Benediction.

Sllhllllil The Photography Club ln the early days of November, Mr. john Fleck brought up the idea of forming a club for students interested in taking and developing pictures. This idea was very well received by various students and the club expanded rapidly until now it numbers twenty-three members. During the first semester Mr. Fleck directed the organization, and since his resignation it has been led by a council. The council is composed of Alfredo Trueba, President, Thomas Maloney, Treasurer, and Genaro Trueba, Secretary. The purpose ofthe club is to teach every one in it the art of photography, as well as different techniques for developing pictures. The snapshot pages of the PATIO were made up by members of the club. At the present time it possesses a dark room equipped with fwo printing boxes, one enlarger, a cabinet in which the members can keep their supplies, and a series of tables, trays and incidental articles without which the amateur cannot work proflciently. 29 TI-IE PATIO 1938 Buck row: Stuart Degginger, ,lohn McSweency, Willizini Baker, james Houser, joseph lvlcLaughin.

JOHN HALEY MRS. MAYBELLE OAKES President 1936-1937 President 1937-1938 The Mothers Gfuilol Once again we wish to pay tribute to the loyal members of the Mothers Guild, who have shown such great interest in the welfare of Archmere and Archmere boys. Mrs. john Haley of Wilmington was very active as president during the 1936-1937 season. At the first meeting this year on October 20th, Mrs. Maybelle Oakes, of Chester, was elected to the presidency. Her efforts in directing the Guild have also been very successful. Since the PATIO last went to press, the mothers of three students have passed to their eternal reward-Mrs. Albin Traceski of Glenolden, Pa., mother of Raymond and Norman, and Mrs. Benjamin Price of Chester, Pa., mother of Benjamin, Ir. Besides bringing about a more lively spirit of cooperation between parents, teachers, and students, the Mothers Guild has worked very hard with the Card and Bingo parties-one of which is held in the fall and another in the spring. , 32 l938 THE PATIG Buck mu: Charles Dzirruh, Victor Phillips.

Varsity Football After a victorious '36 season turned in by Coach Farmer's well drilled gridmen, great things were looked for from the present squad of husky pigskin toters. But the breaks were all for the worse. The injury jinx had a field day and Archmere's fond hopes for a gala season were gone with the wind. The pre-season line-up shaped into a well balanced line and a fast shifty back' field. jim Whelan and Randy King were holding down end positions. Whelan was a second year man, while King formerly played for Claymont. Tony Serpe and john Karpinol, both well over two hundred pounds, were stationed at tackle. Both had previous experience. At guard were joe McCormick and Vic Phillips, the latter a veteran from Chester High. Center seemed well taken care of by Babe Dignazio of Media. ln the baclcfleld, jimmy Noble, a former star of Easton High, acted as triple threat man and signal caller. At halves were john Donovan and jim l-louser. Donovan was a Camden athlete. Fullback was taken care of by big Reed Derouin, hailing from Green Bay, Wis. 36 1938 TI-IEPATIQ But after the first game, this formidable line-up was never completely intact, and Archmere stumbled through a disastrous season. The record was five and none. OCTOBER 9. Archmere inaugurated the 1937 season against Allentown Prep. Quick thrusts in the early periods resulted in an 18 to 0 victory for Allentown. Arch- mere made its best stand in the final period when they held the visitors scoreless and threatened on several occasions to cross the opponents' goal line. Tony Jurich, a replacement for badly injuried lim Noble, and lim Houser featured during this final Archmere outburst. Serpe was outstanding on defense. GCTOBER 16. A strong Brown Prep team of gridsters made the journey down from Philadelphia to hand Archmere its second setback. At the half the score stood 9 to O in the Brownies' favor, by virtue of a strong, running attack. As the second half started, the Archies seemed to have found their stride, and the Brown team was forced to take to the air. Scoring on a long pass, they carried away the victory, 16 to O. OCTOBER 22. Archmere played host to their old rivals, University of Delaware jay Vees. Although the Green and White outfought and outgained their opponents for three periods, they succumbed to a last period rally and dropped the decision 14 to 7. The first half was nip and tuck. Archmere took the opening kick off for a concerted rush and ended only when a touchdown had been scored. Reed Derouin and jim 1-louser carried the ball with Tony jurich doing the blocking. In the second period Delaware recovered a fumble and converted their chance into a six-pointer. On a blocked kick in the final period, they took the advantage for the points which Line: Randolph King, joseph McCormick, Silvio Dignazio, Victor Phillips, john Karpinol, james Whallen. Buckjiuld: john Donovan, Anthony jurich, Reed Dcrouin, james Houser. 37 T1-IE PATIO 1938 meant the game. On the whole the Archies gave their best performance of the season in this game. OCTOBER 30. The Archmere team made the trip to Newark, N. Al., to take on a powerful St. Benedict's Prep gridiron squad. Although the Archies gave good account of themselves, they ended up on the short side of the 14 to 7 score. ln the first period the opponents scored on a long pass to the end zone. Archmere retaliated with a pass to jim Noble, who ran for a touchdown. The third period was featured by several goal line stands by the Green and White. With five minutes remaining, St. Benedict's scored on a desperate pass for the winning margin. NOVEMBER 20. Archmere rang down the curtain on the season by bowing to Bordentown Military Institute in a 12 to O thriller. They put up a great fight although outweighed by twenty pounds to the man. Time after time the Archies checked the strong Bordentown offense but were seldom in a position to take the ball for gains. Buck row: F. Neeson, R. Traceski, G. Harmon, VI. Reischer, D.

Varsity Basketball As Coach Farmer surveyed his material for the 37 38 season, he became aware that he would have to build a completely new team, as there were no holdovers from the previous year. The Vforth Steel gym, in which practice and home games had heretofore been held, was not available this year. This obstacle was soon overcome when a regulation baslcet was erected in the patio. From the first practice, as soon as the boys became used to playing with each other, it could easily be seen that Archmere was in for a banner year. just to prove that it was a well balanced team the boys ripped into Salesianum on December 13th and came out on top by a score of 17 to 8. What was to be our most effective weapon through. out the entire season, that is, Celeste to Noble, quickly came to the fore in the early minutes and Archmere coasted through to an uncontested victory. Monk King began his habit of taking the rebound from the back-board-a great asset during the season. Donovan, opposite Celeste at guard, and Tigani, Gogol, and Serpe completed the first string. After this pretentious start, the team was enthused and their morale strengthened. Two days later they made the trip to Philadelphia for a game with the much vaunted Southeast Catholic courtmen. After a thrilling, ding-dong battle the Green and White passers were downed 24 to 21. The last game before Christmas was with Claymont High. As predicted, the Celeste-Noble combination proved enough to subdue the local rivals. The final score was 29 to 19. Coming back on january 7th, the courtmen showed their real mettle by downing their traditional rivals, St. Robert's, 27 to 12. The Green whirlwind attack was paced by jim Noble, who had 13 points for the evening. 39 THE PATIO 1938 On january 20th, the fast stepping Green team defeated Goldey Business College by a 29 to 23 count, although the Archies were forced to stage a rally in the closing half. Next on the list was Stanfield Boys Club who went down easily, 35 to 23. Our victory march was suddently stalled at this point by two defeats, one at the hands of the eastern coast champions, Brown Prep, and the other at the hands of Beacom College. Brown won to the tune of 28 to 19 and Beacom, 23 to 19. The team resumed their winning ways at the expense of Delaware University lay Vee's, crushing them 40 to 22. Jim Noble put on a scoring exhibition with 16 points. The Stanfield Club bowed again 33 to 26, an expected repeat. In the return game with Goldey College, the Archies dropped their fourth tilt of the season, 34 to 24. Our attack was completely stopped, although Tony Celeste maintained his usual good form and accurate goal shooting. The return game with Beacom, toward which the Green and White had long pointed, ended as before, Beacom winning 29 to 24, in an extra period. February 18th marked the home stretch of the season, and the boys celebrated by polishing off their arch-rivals, St. Robert's, 28 to 17. Then Brown Prep's powerful combination swept into town and easily crushed the Archmere passers, 45 to 17. Archmere failed to put up the stiff opposition to the champions that it had in the iirst meeting. Celeste had 6 points to top the Archies' scoring. Brick rmr: C. lvicCvovern, Mgr., W. Nothnagle, P.

Varsity Baseball Because of an increased schedule for this season, Mr. Farmer has called early practice and has been seeing to it that all candidates get long work-outs. So far, Coach is unable to pick a definite starting team. The large turn-out gives him much material to choose from. Catcher is well taken care of hy Tony Celeste.

As soon as the league schedule was completed the all-school tournament began. Each man was to bowl a total of six games. Not content with being a member ofthe championship team, Fred Neeson also copped top honors in the individual tournament by the narrowest of margins. Fred had a total of 838 for the six games, an average of 139.4. Three tenths of a point behind was lim Whelan with a score of 835, an average of 129.1.

Golf Golf is naturally close to the heart of every boy at Archmere. The sporty nine-hole course around the campus enables the students to enjoy many wholesome hours of recreation. Due to the fact that a schedule with other school teams has been arranged, the annual tournament will get under way earlier than usual. Present plans call for lim l-louser to defend his championship toward the end of April. Some say that he will win the school championship for the third year in a row. Cthers think that he will very likely be dethroned. Whether or not he will remains to be seen. The gentlemen in the picture will represent Archmere on the fairways this spring. Matches have been definitely arranged with Chester High School, North Catholic High School of Philadelphia, and St. Robert's High School of Chester. Several others are in the process of arrangement. The three named are on a home and home basis. 43 THE PATICD 1938 Francis Mullen, Robert Griner, Frederick Baker. Tennis As the 1938 PATIO goes to the printers the interest in tennis for the present season is just awakening among the student body. The two excellent courts, which the Mothers Guild and the Fathers Club provided, have been conditioned for play and it is expected that they will give many enjoyable hours and much healthy exercise to the students this spring just as they have for the past two years. A schedule of seven games with other schools has been arranged. At this time it is impossible to say who will represent Archmere in these matches. Toward the end of the season an all-school tournament will decide who merits the trophy donated by Mr. Albert Teeter.
