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.

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
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-
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.

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."
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

Through his intellectual ability Zig
fame and glory at school and away both
us and for himself. During his four years
at Archmere his name has been continuously
at the top of the honor roll. His ever ready
smile and willingness to cooperate whenever
possible will certainly be missed by all those
whom he leaves behind. The faculty and J
student body look forward to hearing of hisigvlf
achievements in the near future. My K f ,W

DURING the past year each member of the Junior Class
has attempted to do something towards the improve-
ment of Archmere. ln September. the third-year men
elected the following class officers: James Callahan.
president: Robert DeC0sin, vice-president: John Thomas,
treasurer: and James Peters, secretary. 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.

THE SOPHOMORES have continued where they left off last
year, and have enjoyed a very successful year under
the vigilant watch of Father Nolan, our faculty adviser.
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
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-

BECAUSE OF THE new ruling preventing post-graduates
from taking active part in sports, this year's class was
the smallest in the history of the school. 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.
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. Other
members with their positions were: Joseph Kisielewicz.

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-

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
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-
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
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

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-

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

The Archmere Choristers
THE CHORISTERS were organized last fall at the opening
of the school year by Father Gabriel Hinkes. All the
Sophomores. 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

The Alumni Association
MR. JOSEPH W. WALKER, '36
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-
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
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-

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.
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.
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.

yards for the Green and White's retaliation. 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-

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
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

SOME TWENTY lower classmen answered Father Roland
Hoffman's call for midget footballers last September.
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.

ALTHOUGH the 1939-40 varsity basketball campaign can not
be regarded as a complete success so far as victories and defeats
are concerned, the Green and White cagers exhibited true Arch-
mere sportsmanship and put on many exciting battles against
their much stronger opponents. 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.

team's high scorers. Father Hoffman deserves consi-

As THE 1940 PATIO goes to press Archmere has started on what seems to be
a highly successful season. 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.

ONCE AGAIN Archmere was represented by a victorious bowling
team. 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.

I -The Staff
I Patio of 1940
Rhapsody in Confusion
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
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."

A Rhapsody in Confusion
lContinued from page fifty-twoj
It was upon hearing this omnipresent fact for the twenty-
seventh time that we decided to give in and admit our failure.
"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

are heard on the radio, and seen on the stage and screen: every-
one is quiz crazy. Consequently we now present the Archmere
