IN APPRECIATION and gratitude for the innum- erable benefits we have received from our mothers, the Class of 1940 dedicates this year- book to the Archmere Mothers' Guild. During our four years at Archmere this untiring or- ganization has been one of the principal sources of our advancement. Nothing We can say will amply express our sincerest thanks. and best wishes for continued success. MRS. JAMES HOUSER President 1934-35 MRS. JAMES DEWEY President 1933-34 MRS. FRANK GAREY President 1932-33 MRS. ROSE BOYLE President 1935-36 The Mothers' Guild THIS IS THE eighth year that the Mothers' Guild has flour- ished for the greater welfare of Archmere and Archmere students. Organized shortly after the school was opened in September of 1932, by a group of industrious mothers under the sponsorship of the Very Rev. M. J. McKeough. O. Praem.. the Guilds primary desire has been to improve Archmere in every way possible. When the group held their initial meeting, Mrs. Frank Garey of Wilmingtcn was elected ta occupy the post of first president, for the years 1932-33. In the second year the mothers chose Mrs. James Dewey of Chester. Follow- ing a year of brilliant successes Mrs. Dewey relinquished her position to Mrs. James Houser of Wilmington. For its fourth year of accomplishment the Mothers' Guild selected Mrs. Rose Boyle of Norwood, Pa.. as its leader. At the first meeting in 1936 the mothers discussed the affairs of the organizatiin and welcomed the Very Rev. D. F. Hurley, O. Praem., who had succeeded Father Mc- Keough as Headmaster. The members then elected Mrs. James Haley of Wilmingtcn president. After a very suc- cessful year, Mrs. Haley was followed by Mrs. Maybelle Oakes of Chester for the years 1937-38. In order that the new mothers might have an experienced leader for the first card party, Mrs. Oakes tenure was extended until after the party was held. On December 20. 1939. Mrs. Joseph Cavanaugh of Wilmington was elected president. She was succeeded last fall by Mrs. William Nothnagle of Chester MRS. JAMES HALEY MRS. MAYBELLE OAKES President 1936-37 PrCSidCf1f 1937-38 - Appreciation THE OTHER officers at the present time are: Mrs. Joseph Monigle of Wilmington, Vice-President: Miss Catherine Hodgson of Chester, Secretary: and Mrs. Joseph Cavan- augh, Treasurer. The Mothers' Guild meets at Archmere on the first Wed- nesday of every month during the school year, either in the afternoon or evening. Discussicn of school affairs and plans for social activities take place. Twice a year, in the fall and in the spring, a card party is held in the patio. It is customary also to hold a luncheon once a year in Wilmington or Chester. One of the greatest benefits of the Mothers' Guild has been its gifts to Archmere. The organization has been very generous in providing equipment in nearly every de- partment of school activities. The chapel received a com- plete set of vestments, a very beautiful set of candlesticks, a new sanctuary lamp, and a bronze crucifix. When the chapel was redecorated in the summer of 1938, the Mothers' Guild financed the work. ln the realm of athletics the Guild paid for the erection of the two new tennis courts and also for some of the equipment in the new gymnasium. One year a complete moving picture machine with sound equipment was purchased. At another time the school received five dozen card tables and twelve dozen folding chairs. At the present time the organization is planning to provide the Archmere Orchestra with uniforms. The activities of the Mothers' Guild throughout these years demonstrates their deep sense of loyalty to the school. and the Class of 1940 acknowledges this with since gratitude. MRS. JOSEPH CAVANAUGH President 1938-39 MRS. WILLIAM NOTHNAGLE President 1939-40 :if is , JS- g MCL.: The Archmere Escuteheon ARCHMEREfS COAT-OF-ARMS is such an emblematic design that each symbol has a special significance. The shield itself is divided by the vertical center line into two major fields, the sinister and the dexter. These sides were so designated in medieval times when such emblems were carried on shields as a means of identification. The insignia faced outward, so that in reality, when one gazes on the escutcheon, the sinister actually is on the right and the dexter is seen on the left. Each of the elemental fields is divided into minor sections by the angular parallel lines forming a chevron, upon which are three pairs of arched trees to represent Archmere. At the fond of the shield, in the dexter portion, is the personal heraldic emblem of the Rt. Rev. B. H. Pennings, O. Praem.. who together with the Most Rev. Edmund Fitzmaurice, Bishop of Wilming- ton, whose emblem is the emerald struck in the sinister portion, was the founder of Archmere. Above the chevron in the sinister is the orb or world encoiled by a serpent whose head is crushed by the Crown of the Mother of God, to whom Arch- mere, under the title of her Immaculate Conception, is dedicated. The arms of St. Norbert, Count of Gennep, are on the opposing dexter above the chevron. These are four shears in the angles of St. Andrew's Cross. Sur- mounting this design is one of a crescent between the fleur-de-lis, the design of the Norbertine Order. The fleur-de-lis denote the affiliation of the Order to France, where it originated, while the crescent demonstrates dedication to the Blessed Virgin. Beneath the shield is the Archmere motto, "Pietate et Scientian-"with devotion and knowledge." 7fze aww, THE VERY REV. DANIEL F. HURLEY, O. PRAEM Headmaster of Archmere Prior of Immaculate Conception Priory, DURING our four years at Archmere the administration has seen no great changes. In our Freshman year, Father Savageau, Father McDonell, and Mr. John Fleck were the teachers who are no longer at Arch- mere. With our Sophomore term came Father Diny, Father Hinkes, Father Vanderheiden, and Mr. John Cabrey. Mr. Cabrey left us, and in his place for our Junior semesters we were taught by Father Hoffman. During our reign as exalted Seniors, Mr. John Mullins and Mr. Harry Wendel were our new teachers. Both priests and laymen have helped to make our Archmere years the happiest We have experienced, and it is with heavy hearts that we bid them adieu, both as pupils and friends. i Z, -.

The Juniors were represented on the football, basketball, baseball. and bowling teams. They were also active in the Phi Sigma Alpha, the Dramatic Club, the Civics Club, and on the Green Arch staff. The intra-mural basketball cham- pionship was won by the Juniors. and on April 26th a very successful Junior Prom was held in the patio. All in all, next year's Senior class has a bright outlook.

At the first meeting the elections were held and re- sulted in the choosing of William O'Connell as president: John Henry as vice-president: Daniel Shields as secre- tary: and John Crowley as treasurer. While most of us are not endowed with athletic ability we can, however, hold our own in the majority of sports. We really excell in scholars as the monthly honor roll shows. We have the reputation of being the most different class in school and hope that next year will bring more enjoyment and pleasure for both our teachers and class- members.

But when the call for candidates came. the post-graduates though small in number answered in all their glory. The post- graduates were represented on all teams by almost all of their number. They were able to accomplish many extraordinary things, both in class and out, which would not have been done with a larger group. The post- graduates supported all of the social events and assisted the Seniors to make the Senior Ball a success. Because of this spirit and whole hearted support, the year of 1940 has passed with amazing speed. Page Twenty-eight GWWJW4 The Patio Staff THE SUPREME undertaking of any Senior class is the publication of its yearbook. When Father Nolan, faculty adviser, called for volunteers in September to carry Out this work. fifteen members of the class re- sponded. Work was immediately started with Walter Ziegler as Editor-in-Chief and Business Manager.

The Archmere Orchestra THIS YEAR ARCHMERE has a school orchestra for the first time. Under the able directorship of Mr. Wendel, the group of fourteen musicians were organized into a re- presentative orchestra early in the year. Practice was held twice a week in the convocation room. The orches- tra's first public appearance was a concert for the Mothers' Guild at its monthly meeting in January. Throughout the year the organization made rapid strides. and in the latter months of the second semester made several public appearances. Here. indeed, is another Archmere activity which has proved itself to be a great asset to the school and has become a very popular part of Archmere's extra-curri- cular activities.

Phi Sigma Alpha IN ITS SECOND YEAR of organization, Archmere's public speaking fraternity, the Phi Sigma Alpha, opened its session with only two chartered members-James Reischer and Walter Ziegler. However at the opening meeting, Mr. O'Brien, moderator of the club. saw that he already had a nucleus for the coming year, since five other seniors were present. As a result of the elec- tions held at the beginning of the year, Ralph Coughlan was elected president, James Reischer, vice-president. and Walter Ziegler, secretary, During the season the Phi Sigma Alpha scheduled two de- bates apiece with St. Josephs Prep. of Philadelphia and Sales- ianum High School of Wilmington. Several Intra-fraternity contests were held before the student body, and over radio sta- tions WDEL and WILM of Wilmington. Other radio pro- grams presented by the group over these stations included an Easter play-"The Watchers"-and a weekly series of dramas on the lives of famous Americans. Spelling bees, an oratory contest, the press exhibit, a one act play contest, and other such activities for the entire student body, were sponsored by Phi Sigma Alpha in the hope of bettering public speaking at Arch- mere. Page Thirty-two Herman Joseph Society THE BLESSED l-IERMAN JOSEPH SOCIETY was organized for all those students who are interested in participating more intimately with the priest at the Sacrifice of the Mass and Benediction. To make it possible for both boarding and day students to take part in the various services, the boarding students are privileged to serve Mass and Sunday Benediction, while the day students serve for the usual Friday afternoon service. For the 1939-40 school year the following officers were elected: William Noth- nagle, president: Joseph Devlin. vice-president: Paul Riley, secre- tary: and John Henry. treasurer: with Father Hinkes as Faculty Advisor. The members of this organization are under the protection of a Norbertine Saint-Blessed Herman Joseph-who is noted for his devotion to the Blessed Virgin and the Sacred Heart, his reverence at the Sacrifice of the Mass, and his angelic purity. He lived during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. His body is buried in Steinfeld where his marble tomb can be seen to the present day. lsr Row 1-James Dolan, Joseph Devlin, VVilliam Nothnagle, Father Hinkes, Paul Riley, John Henry Justin Hopkins. 2Nu Row 1-Harold Burigard, James Henll'y,CHem'i Wendel, William McLaughlin, James NValsh.

Page Thirty-three Model Airplane Club DURING THE past school year the Archmere Modelairs have expanded into a cooperative group which held two Model Air Meets and participated whole-heartedly in the Annual Archmere Hobby Show. In November, 1939, they held a successful rubber band model contest and in June, 1940, they sponsored a combined gas and rubber powered model show. These contests were managed and directed by Father Hoffman the club adviser. The winners of the events were awarded prizes for their achievements with their models. Club officers for the scholastic season were: Genaro Treuba, president: John Hairsine, vice-president: and Joseph Kisielewicz, secretary-treasurer. Through the cooperation of the club officers with Father Hoffman, the model club has joined the ranks of the active clubs of Archmere and has helped to increase interest in extra- curricular activities.

Green Arch Staff OPERATING UNDER a new system whereby a new staff was chosen every three issues. the Green Arch publication enjoyed one of its most prosperous years. The first editor was James Henry. who was followed by Ralph Coughlan, Thomas Kilcullen, Robert Cavanaugh, and Walter Ziegler, in that order. The paper was issued every two weeks on the seccnd and fourth Fridays of the month, with a total of sixteen issues. Two issues in May were edited by the Junior class. Much of the paper's success can be credited to Father Nolan, the faculty adviser. The Green Arch was represented at the Columbia Press Association meeting at Newark, Del., and the Middle States Press Association in Wilmington. Two members of the staff. James Henry and Ralph Coughlan. attended the Columbia Press meeting in New York City. Page Thirty-five Sr:.vrisD:fWilliam Nester, David Hairsine. James LaPenta.

Freshmen, and Eighth-graders were eligible for membership. Practices were held twice a week in the chapel. The officers are: Joseph Devlin, president: James LaPenta, vice-president: William 0'Connell, secretary: John Shields, treasurer: John Henry. Anthony Pileggi. and Albert Santa Maria, librarians. The organ in the school chapel has soft, rich tones. This is an incentive for the choir to sing joyful praises to God. The purposes of the choir are to acquaint its members with the ancient, yet always new and fascinat- ing music of the Church-the Gregorian chant, to learn a greater variety of sacred hymns, and to give a founda- tion lor solo and polyphonic singing.

The Archmere Players THE ARCHMERE PLAYERS began anew this year under the direction of Father Hoffman. having been idle during the past two years. On Palm Sunday, March 20th. "Monsignor's Hour", a timely peace drama by Emmet Lavery, was presented at two performances in the patio to enthusiastic audiences. Principal roles in the supreme production of the year were taken by Walter Ziegler, as Monsignor Carey, an Irish-American clergyman travelling in Rome, and by John Crowley, as "His Eminence". Others in the cast were: Ralph Coughlan as Monsignor Amato: William Tigani-Gabriel Pagnani: Albert Santa Maria-Cav dinal Perez: James Reischer and Thomas Maloney-an engaged couple: John Lynn'-a labor leader: John Judge --a professor: Henri Wendel-a student: and Jose presa and Genaro Trueba as Swiss Guards. Page Thirty-seven The Alumni Association MR. JOSEPH W. WALKER, '36 President THE ARCHMERE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION was organized in March of this year after an attempt in 1936 proved un- successful because of the small number of graduates. The Association is made up of graduates. post-graduates, and those who spent at least one year at Archmere and withdrew in good stand- ing. Though it is still in an embryonic stage, the Association. under the gui- dance of Father Hurley, Spiritual Ad- viser, and Mr. W. Joseph Walker, president, shows promise of doing great things. Less than a month after it was organized, plans were drawn up for a Communion Breakfast and Home-coming Day to be held June 9 at Archmere. On this day, the Sen- iors, as guests of the Alumni, had an opportunity to meet the men who have gone before them and were welcomed into the Association. At the Mass in the morning the Alumni and the Seniors received Communion in a body. Father McKeough, Archmere's first head- master, spoke at the breakfast. In the Page Thirty-eight afternoon there were a number of sport contests between the Alumni and the varsity teams. Next year the Alumni group intends to begin more intensive activities. In the late fall an Alumni dance will be held. This and the Home-coming Day are to be annual affairs. The Alumni will be represented at all athletic con- tests, dances, banquets, and programs held at the school. At intervals throughout the year meetings will be held at Archmere to discuss means whereby old grads can take an ever- increasing interest in school activities. At the meeting held on Sunday, March 31, the following members of the Alumni Association were present: W. Joseph Walker, James Whelan, James Haley, William Navin, Edward Jurkowski, Joseph Mikesell, John Morley, Edward Oakes, Leon Wojie- choski, Victor DeBerardinis. John McLaughlin, Thomas Sullivan, Thomas Donnelly, John Alderdice, Stuart Degginger, Victor Phillips, Anthony Jurich, James Houser, Michael O'Con- nor, John Rebmann, Joseph Healy, In response to the editor's call for information a number of Alumni gave the following facts: Mr. W. Joseph Walker is with the Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. in Philadelphia. Mr. Gerard Garey is graduating this year from the Catholic University of America at Washington, D. C. Mr. Bernard O'Reilly is graduating this year from Panzer College and has accepted a position as head coach at St. Michael's High School, Union City, N. J. Mr. Stuart Degginger is majoring in English at Fordham University. New York City. Mr. Francis Tigani, upon his gra- duation from Beacom College, will be employed at the duPont Building in Wilmington. Ni SMH Varsity Football FOR THE first time since its establishment, Archmere was not represented by a prep-school football team. A new spirit was born among the high school athletics, evidenced by the ample and able material responding to Coach Farmers call for candidates. And a splendid record was established by the squad. Out of six contests the Green and White emerged victorious in four, lost one, and tied one, to compile a total of fifty-two points against the twenty-five scored by opponents. Before the season began Johnny Good- body was elected captain, and during the campaign he justified this choice. Conrad High, September 29. In its opening contest Archmere journeyed down to Wilmington to do battle with the Conrad Redskins. This game proved to be the only blotch on the record of the Archies. After a close, bruising game, Conrad plunged over from the two-yard line for the sole tally of the day. Gallagher and Neeson were best on the line, while Goodbody was outstanding in the backfield. Archmere-O Conrad-6 Claymont High, October 6. Claymont was the first team to taste the power that Archmere possessed, as the Green and White wave rolled over their traditional rivals by a score of 13-0. The first half gave every indication of a close game, but the third period saw a sudden change. After a steady advance into enemy territory, Johnny Goodbody scored: the attempt for extra point failed. In the fourth quarter Bob DeCosin made a sensational dash through the entire Claymont team for 70 yards and a touchdown. Flaherty converted the placement. Gallagher and Neeson again shone in the line as Goodbody, Healing, and DeCosin featured the offensive. Archmere-13 Claymont-0 Delaware City High, October 20. This was the first home game of the season and it proved to be a thrilling struggle for the large crowd of parents and friends who witnessed it. Dela- ware City sported an undefeated record but fell before the Archies 6-O. The score came as a re- sult of a 45-yard drive to the 9-yard line. At this point Goodbody, after two line smashes, scored the winning tally. Walker, Neeson, and Gallag- her were defensive stars, while Healing, Doherty. and Goodbody sparked in the backlield. Archmere-6 Delaware City-0 Delaware City High, October 27. Once again the Archmere eleven triumphed over Delaware City, for its third straight win in four starts. Delaware City opened the scoring by a Coach Farmber touchdown on a 70-yard run late in the second Page Forty Si-.Ann -Coach Farmer, Bill Flaherty.

Bill Flaherty place-kicked a splendid conversion. Doherty was the outstanding back. while Tigani and Flaherty were extraordinary on the line. Archmere-7 Delaware City--6 Tome School, Port Deposit, Md., November 3. With three successive wins to its credit Archmere traveled down to Port Deposit, Maryland, where it defeated the boys representing Tome High School. The Archmere gridsters were not able to run up an early touch- down, and the first half ended scoreless. In the second half the Archies got off to a flying start and scored when a Tome kick was blocked on the two- yard line. Phil Doherty, the field general of the team, went over the goal- line for the score. Johnny Goodbody then sparked another drive, and this time he scored from the 10-yard marker. Bill Flaherty kicked the extra point to give Archmere another victory. Tigani and Winchester were also out- standing. Archmere-13 Tome--0 A. I. DuPont High, November 17. In its final fray of the season Archmere played host to Alexis I. DuPont at Pennsy Field, Wilmington, and after sixty minutes of hard, grueling foot- ball tied the much stronger opponents 13-13. A few minutes after the opening whistle Neeson intercepted a duPont pass and dashed 60 yards for a touch- down. Bill Flaherty's talented toe kicked the extra point. Johnny Good- body chalked up the second touchdown when he scored on an end run from the 10-yard line. "Cotton" Millers superb kicking. running, passing, and tackling established him as the outstanding player. Archmere--13 A, I. Dupont-13 Page Forty-one FCDCDTBALL BANQLIET IN RECOGNITION of the successful season, a football banquet was held in the Patio on the evening of Thursday, December 21. Franny Murray and Emmett Mortell, the schedul- ed speakers, were unable to be present, but Father Diny, toastmaster, did admirably well in presenting Mr. Gerald Doherty, Graduate Manager of Athle- tics at the University of Delaware and father of Archmere's quarterback. Mr. Doherty gave some enlightening remarks on his own and his son's life. Father Diny next introduced Mr. Francis Gallagher, of Chester, who told some amusing anecdotes. During the evening a number of songs were sung. After Mr. Gallagher finished, Mr. Farmer was given a leather traveling bag by John Goodbody. captain of the 1939 eleven. In the coach's speech, which took place immediately after the presentation, Mr. Farmer encouraged particularly those players who did not receive a letter, but who lent both moral and physical support on the practice field. Then it was only fitting that the Midget team coach should be heard from. Consequently, Father Hoffman extended a few details on the "varsity of tomorrow." ' Others at the speakers' table included Fathers Hurley, Nolan, Vanderheiden, and Hinkes of the faculty: Father Fitzpatrick, pastor of Holy Rosary Church: Father McKeough former Headmaster of Archmere, Father Rondou and Mr. John McGarry, of Southeast Catholic High in Philadelphia: Mr. John Mullins and Mr. Edward O'Brien, of the faculty: and Mr. Walter Taylor, of Claymont High School. Varsity letters were given to Captain Goodbody, Bill Flaherty, Henry Winchester, George Aruffo, Thomas Kilcullen, John Thomas, Joe Walker, Fred Neeson, Howard Gallagher, Phil Doherty, Gerald Stevenson, Gene Healing, Bob Griner, Pat Coyne. and Jim Callahan. Midget letters: S. Haldas, J. Walsh, D. Hair- sine, J. Presa, J. Clough, W. Nester, R. Cavan- augh, J. Nester, D. Murphy, R. Gallagher, A. Santa Maria, K. Gordon, J. Devlin, T. Maloney, J. Peters, W.

From these players a pretty fair 'Aeleven" was formed. On October fourth the Mighty Mites tied Saint Roberts freshmen O-0. The next games with Bayard proved disastrous to the Green team when they were beaten 20-0. The next two games with Immaculate Heart and Delaware City were won by scores of 28-18 and 7-0. On November 3 the Midgets received their second de- feat at the hands of Salesianum 6-O. The final game with the Claymont "Little Indians" ended in a 7-7 tie. Despite the fact that the Midgets did not uphold the undefeated record of the two previous seasons, some good football was displayed, and several worthy pros- pects for the varsity were uncovered. Among the out- standing Midgets were Dick Cavanaugh, Spiros Haldas. Pete McHugh, Tom Maloney and .lose Presa.

The first half of the season ended with Archmere holding a record of only one win in eight starts, But the quintet rallied in the final half to overcome live rivals, against only four setbacks. Gene Healing was elected captain, and Bill Flaherty was high scorer with 170 points for the season.

Midget Basketball THE ARCHMERE MIDGETS opened their 1939-40 season by visiting Claymont High and receiving a defeat from the little Indians to the tune of 33-17. The Green and White then played Resurrection of Chester and were dealt their second loss to the close score of 17-16. The Mighty Midgets next journeyed to the Mount Pleasant Junior High and Won their onl ygame in a hard-fought battle 22-20. The next three games were defeats, Clay- mont, Resurrection, and Mount Pleasant conquering the Midgets by close scores. Spiros Haldas, Danny Doran, and Jose Presa were the team's high scorers. Father Hoffman deserves consi- derable praise for his patient coaching. In spite of the fact that the players were inexperienced, the Midgets played their hearts out in each contest and deserve much credit. Page Forty-six STANDINGZ'CO3Cl'1 Farmer.

Already two thrilling games have been won. In the season's opener. New Castle wilted beneath the two-hit shutout pitch- ing of Gene Healing while Archmere pounded out seven runs. Fred Neeson had the longest hit. a triple into deep right field. Nothnagle, Doherty and Kilcullen each collected two hits. ln the second encounter, the hitting power of Archmere asserted itself as A. I. Dupont lost by the decisive score of ll-2. 'ADodo" DeCosin pitched superbly and was master of the situation from the outset. Johnny Goodbody was the hitting star with a perfect day at bat. Johnny had four hits, includ- ing a home run with two men on. During the season. it seems safe to say, that they may rely upon excellent pitching. timely hitting. and good fielding. These three form the perfect combination of which Archmere may well be proud. April 23-Newcastle ............. ........ H ome May 17'-Claymont ..... April 26-A. I. DuPont ....... .......

Two matches apiece were scheduled with Salesianum and Upper Darby High School, and one match with Sharon Hill was played. The home boys were victorious in all but one game -the return match with Upper Darby. The entire team was composed of five seniors, Henry, Neeson, Davis, Reischer, and Zarnoski, the last named rolling the highest score of the season, a 224 game while bowling against Salesianum. Throughout their entire four years at Archmere this quintet has dominated the bowling. Even as lowly Frosh they excel- led, losing only one game to the P. G's by the scant margin of two pins. In a return match the Freshmen won by well over two hundred pins. During their remaining three years their names were always found beside the highest scores. Neeson, Henry, and Davis particularly were outstanding during their four-year stay at Archmere.

We are sincerely confident that the readers of this I Annual will not fail to support and patronize these kind benefactors. I I -The Staff I Patio of 1940 , I Page Fifty-one Rhapsody in Confusion Oll- The Case of the Empt Pages BOY, WHAT A suRPR1sE this "cruel world" is going to get in a few years when Archmere's class of 1940 has taken over the reins of power. We intended to devote this section of our year book to some amusing story of what the future holds for our hopeful grads, but on the second thought, after looking over the records and discovering that almost half the class intends to enter the field of engineering and that the other half is undecided, we thought we had better give up the idea as a bad venture. "Oh, come now," we were reprimanded by a none-too-patient faculty adviser. "Surely you can write something in prophecy." "But what can we say when everybody is interested in the same field?", We came back. "Make up something," was the reply, and as said adviser left. there seemed nothing to do but moan, alone in our misery. lt appeared that page fifty-two was doomed to remain as "naked as a new b--- ibut then you're familiar with the quota- tion, aren't you?l Days passed. weeks slipped by, and not a word more was said to us regarding the prophecy. Slowly the pangs of conscience tore their way into our nerve-wracked mind. "Your 1940 Patio will be a failure", we heard ringing in our ears. "Imagine, not enough brains to compose a class prophecyf' we could hear them saying it way back in March. Then as April rolled up we could see our critics shake their heads sadly and turn away. We reached out pleadingly, searching for some inspiration, any idea. "Type a small paragraph telling of your difficulty, inexperience, etc., and let them judge for themselves," spoke our better inner self. "Don't be foolish," retorted our conceit, "lt will only mean ridicule". And then we could stand it no more. With a heart-rendering shriek we threw our pen to the floor and bowed our head in grief, resigned to our fate. "What is to be, is to be", we consoled ourselves. and straightway resolved to forget the whole thing till warm weather. It was only too soon that we felt the first balmy breeze of incoming spring wafted to us on the wings of time. Lazily we attempted not to notice, and tried to forget our procrastination: but every few days we would be jolted to reality by the innocent query, "When is the year book going to the printers?" or by the eternal question of a demanding assistant, openly asking. "What goes on page fifty-two? lt's blank." QContinued on page sixty-onej Page Fifty-two Jas. T.

"The river will end it all, we decided." And so it was that on a very uneventful day in April one might have seen a very dejected-looking editor slowly make his way down to the bank of the black Delaware, poise for a moment reflecting upon the immensity of the deed which he intended to commit. and suddenly dive headlong into the oily depths. One second passed-two seconds-three-and then suddenly out of the surging water shot the grease-stained arm of our hero. Grasping an oil can which had obviously drifted down from Marcus Hook, he paddled to shore. For a moment he lay ex- hausted on the lubricated beach. But only for a moment, for in a flash he sprang to his feet, ran back toward the school. shouting exultantly, "I've got it!!!!" Y l 'I i' Since we realize your anxiety to learn what it was "he got" that made him vociferate so loudly, without further adieu we present. "The PROPHECY OF THE CLASS OF 1940" Quiz games today are the rage: question and answer programs are heard on the radio, and seen on the stage and screen: every- one is quiz crazy. Consequently we now present the Archmere Quiz Show, with the answers by the Seniors. and in case some of the answers appear rather oily, remember that inspiration came while bathing in the waters of the Delaware. The Question: "What is your choice as a state of life for the future?" The Answers Robert Cavanaugh: "My dynamic personality will seek greater conquests in the field of Chemical Engineering." Ralph Coughlan: "If I receive an appointment to West Point, I shall become a general. Otherwise, I shall settle as an actuary." Patrick Coyne: "lf finances permit, I would like to study medicine at Notre Dame." George Davis: "After getting inside information on the sub- ject by means of an appendectomy, I have decided to take up surgery." Phil Doherty: UA course in forestry is my main ambition at present." Albert Ewald: "Well, l'll tell you: some day you will refer to me as "Chief of Naval Operations." lContinued on page sixty-twoj Page Sixty-one A Rhapsody in Confusion lContinued from page sixty-onej John Goodbodyz "I would like to become a research chemist after graduating from Drexel Institute, which I will attend if I can acquire the funds." Robert Griner: "My present plans include surgery: you know I've always been a "cut-up". James Henry: "If my Math holds out, some day, I'1l be an accountant." Joseph I-less: "By September, 1940, you'll find me at the University of Delaware, plugging hard to become a future mem- ber of the Ll. S. Bureau of Agriculture." John Judge: "Oh, I think I'll become a dentist and gaze down the gullets of susceptible patrons." Thomas Kilcullen: "Because of the war, I hear they're hiring at the Navy Yard: so why shouldn't I be a mechanical engineer?" Joseph Kisielewicz: "My lifelong ambition will be achieved when I am appointed to the U. S. Army Air Corps." John Lynn: "Destiny has fated me to carry on the family tradi- tion and become a morticianf' Fred Neeson: "Regardless of what the future has in store, my goal will always be to become a chemist at Sun Oil Company." Frank Nester: "If I follow in my father's footsteps, chemical engineering at Texaco will consume my future." James Reischer: "Electrical engineering, because of my love of Mathematics, will become my aim for the world of tomorrow." Paul Riley: "Having enjoyed my work on the Green Arch staff, I feel that journalism will be my chosen profession." Joseph Walker: "While attending night school I hope to attain my life's purpose by working my way up in one of Chester's larger office buildings." Henry Winchester: "After four years of persistent study at Delaware and Georgetown Universities respectively, I will en- deavor to find fame through the medium of criminal law." Edward Zarnoski: "Not tradition or family influence, but my desire to delve into the secrets of life, prompt me to choose a medical career." Walter Ziegler: "Listen.
