O'BRIEN P57 - Because he stands foremost a man in the right as God has ordained it, Because he Hghts on in a World and a time when it is easier and more pleasant to yield and surrender, Because he lives in his calling the fullest life of Christ's goodness and counsel, , Because he prides in the fruits of his life-the finest of families and the Hrmest of faiths-midst the sneers of the world, Because these things and more he has taught us and leaches us still, We, the Class of 1944, humbly dedicate this, our PATIO of 1944, to Mr. Edward Vincent O'Brien as .a tribute, a token and a symbol. It is a tribute to his hiding greatness, it is a token of our appreciation, it is a symf bol of the great Faith, so much of which he has, with Father Hurley and the Faculty, given us, by which we mean to live as he has done. lllllllllllll The Very Reverend Daniel F.

Charlie transferred to Archmere during his Junior year and became an intrinsic cog in cam' pus life. Immediately upon his arrival, he dis' played his friendly disposition and scholarly manner. By no means a man of limited capabilf ities, his adeptness was exhibited in all fields. Truly a talented mathematician, Charlie hast frequently lent a helping ha ai to his less gifted classmates. In the realm of .ports he held forth both on the football field and the basketball court. His ready smile won him the friendship of all who worked with him. The abundance of talent he possesses, coupled with his fine char' acter, will serve him well in future years both as a Midshipman in the Navy Vfl2 and as a Naval Engineer.

In the past live years jim has gained the reputation of being the class car' toonist, Through his ability he has been known to awaken many a dull class with his cartoons. Although Jim did not participate in any of the major sports, his reputation is well known in the bowling alleys. We are sure that jim with all his outstanding abilities has a big future ahead of him. Good luck, Jim! WTLLIAM EDWARD CRAVEN 17 Walkers Banks, Henry Clay, Delaware "Bill" Activities: Green Arch 3, 4, Bowling 3, 4, Choir 1, 2, Civics Club 3, Patio Staff 4. Bill in four years has left an indelible imf pression as a gentleman and a scholar. His aptif tude in the classroom is best expressed by the quality of his literary compositions. However, his mathematical talents should not be over' looked. A consistent honor student, Bill is ex' ceptional in his neatness and efficiency. Because of his quiet, sincere attitude towards both friends and teachers, he has become well liked and respected by all. Though not a proficient athlete, he was a prominent figure in the bowl' ing alley. His ready wit and fine sense of humor have made him a pleasant companion. The knack of getting things done will insure his suc- cess in later life. - WILLIAM F.

Bill has been the most spirited member of our class since the freshman year. His untiring ambition and steady concentration have made him a leader in all activities. In his classwork Bill followed the example of his brother, who was one of the hlst students to enter Archmere. Of Bill it may by said that to meet 'him is to like him. His fighting spirit extends also to the field of sports. The football and basketball teams have been greatly enlivened by his fine play. We are especially appreciative and gratef ful to Bill for his unselfish participation in school affairs. Take a tip from us and place a bet on Bill's eventual success. JOHN F. FILLIBEN, JR. 506 S.

His inf nate politeness and courtesy have made him a pleasant companion both of the faculty and the student body. In his quiet way Duke has played an important part in the administration of class activities. Though hurt before the actual playf ing season, he received his football monogram as a token of appreciation for his fine spirit and sportsmanship. He also uncovered his talents in basketball and baseball, On the diamond his pitching prowess was a well recognized fact. If he matches his enviable record at Archmere, in the coming years he will be a sure Hre success.

Jim is a lad who might very well find his cue for life in Shakespeare's Hamlet or Lear: he has built himself quite a reputation for clowning and caprice, yet underneath this surf face there is quite a wealth of potentialities. For Jim is an uncommonly fine student of English -as much of this book is testimonial-and, more rare, a keen observer of life. He held a vital position on the basketball court, where he amassed a large number of points, and then turned in a very successful season on the base' ball diamond at first base. If he really makes use of his talents, he promises to have an out' standing career at the Wharton School of Finance during the year before going into the Navy. 1 L.

In each of his four years, he was the pace setter in schof lastic achievements. His dynamic personality has made friends for him among teachers and stu' dents alike, The consistent excellence of his grades has won the respect and admiration of all. Nor is he deficient in athletic ability, His compact frame cavorted on the gridiron, the basketball court, and the diamond. His selffeonf fidence and fine competitive spirit will make him a man to be reckoned with in the years to come. Jim intends to enter the Army Vfl2 in July and so attend a scientific school for the year or so before he enters upon active duty, RICHARD J.

Dick is a likeable fellow despite his chronic- ally pessimistic attitude. His ease in making friends may be attributed to his sparkling per' sonality. In his easy going manner he has en' deared himself to everyone. Dick attacked his studies this year with an unforeseen zest. Knuckling down to work since September, he has set a good example for his classmates. How' ever, he is not only a connoisseur of studies but also an accomplished football player. He played center for the past two years for the Green and White. Dick's savoir faire has made him indisf pensable in class affairs. We are proud to say that he has enlisted in the Navy. Lots of luck!

Joe for four years has been an indispensable member of our class. His congenial attitude puts him near the top in popularity. Because of his many redeeming features, it is hard to choose an outstanding mannerism. The proof of our confidence in his leadership is expressed by the many oihces he held while at school. None other had more of a hand in the dispensing of class affairs. His election as captain of the football team was the climax of three years of stellar play. To include all of his achievements would necessitate more space. Let it suffice to say that joe has all the essential qualities and abilities necessary for the attainment of success. THOMAS M.

Tom has been a bright spot in our class for the past three years, His easy smile is a big factor in the large number of friends he has made. However, his countenance is not his only asset by far. He is a hard Working and capable student. His cutting wit has enlivened many otherwise dull classes. As for class spirit, his has always been of the highest caliber. This fact is best seen by his active participation in class affairs. With regard to sports he has played plenty of football for the Green and White. With such a great record to leave behind, Tom has plenty to look forward to in the future. aaaam,gmf1a51mDg1944 We are a Class who marked the change in things. W'ith use sometimes silent, watching, sometimes active, loudffArchmere has grown older, passed its childhood, entered its "Second Springfl We came in the Fall of '40 sixteen strong to inaugurate the new classrooms in the IVIanor Hall. Everything was so bright and new: the sky held few, if any, clouds. In '41, as Sophomores, we returned almost gleefully, if such a thing is possible! Archmere was larger now: the lower tract of woodland and the houses had been bought, but we were more inf terested in football, and the rest, for it promf ised to be a gala year-Archmere's tenth annif versary. But with December seventh came Pearl Harbor and the warfour Hrst and Archmere's. It didnit mean too much 'cause we were still too young, but, then, brothers and friends who had gone off rather gaily for a year "to train" came home to say goodfbye and no one knew when they would be home again, There were airfraid drills and Red Cross nhrstfaidn and activities galore. Now we were Juniorsfjust fourteeniand we tried to tighten up and buckle down, but the current was against us: everything was flux. Change was the motif: in the faculty there were four new faces: Fathers Nolan, Hinkes and Hoffman, and Coach Farmer had been changed for Fathers Wagner, Blecha and Demerath and Coach Cicero: we had "commando" training, and lots more Math.: at home there was rationf ing and shortages and blackouts: in the papers new names gave way to newer names: Eisenf hower, Doolittle, Coral Sea, Guadalcanal, Stal' ingrad-and a million more. Is it any wonder we were changelings? When we returned Seniors in September, 1943, we knew that we were the hrst of the new age. Father Vanderheiden was gone and in his place came Father Toonen. At the midfyear Mr. O'Brien left to be replaced by Mr. Stuart Degginger, '39, In June two of the early graduf atcs had been ordained priests -- Fathers Feld' man and McLaughlin, and now another alumf nus had returned to teach. Surely Archmcre had come of age. But each day now saw a short visit of one or two or three Archies in uniform fcome home on leave before going over. Why we were only 10 Seniors: Dick Crace had left us for the Navy, Bob Boyle and Bob Murphy for the Army, Bob Wheeler for the Merchalat IVIarine. And then rapidly in sharp succession came three messages to sadden and to impress us all: three Archies had given their lives: Pfc. Wil' liam IVIcDowell, U.S.M.C., was killed in the Gilbert Islands: Lt. Reed DeRouen, U.S.A., at Salerno: Capt. Dan 0'Donnell, U.S.A,A.C., in Australia. May God grant them refreshment, light and peace! May He preserve all others! We are Seniors now. We have this, our Patio, and our Senior Ball. In ten days Charley Brown will deliver the Salutatory, and jim Phillips, the Valedictory at our graduation and commencef ment. And we will have our memories, But we have something moref-esomething which is hard to tell in words. We know what Archmere means. It is a Faith . . . Trust . . . Love. It is why we fight and what we fight for, and if we persevere in its defense, we must be eternally grateful to Archmere. Left to right: W. Craven, Haley, T. Walsh, R. Shiels, J.

Father Vtfagner this year had the distinction of mod' erating the most active class in the school, the juniors- - though some people were disparaging enough to assert that the class was forced to this activity to keep one step ahead of the sheriff. Knowing Father Wagner we doubt this. Still the class did elect Bill Doherty as President, Dick Kaiser as VicefPresident, Bob DeFiore as Secretary, and John R. Callahan as Treasurer, which is enough to excite anyone's suspicions. Five new members were added to the class in September: Bill Crawford, Connie Jones, Bob Eisler, Bob LaPenta and Charles Firebaugh. With this group the class was able to put over a very successful junior Prom on April 21, 1944, to participate decisively in all athletics, and, most im' portant, to be continuously well represented on the honor roll and in all scholastic activities. Two juniors received medals at graduation for placing second and third in the annual spelling contests: james Dugan and Martin Wendelg at the same time Ralph Schilly took the award for scholasf tic achievement, and the awards for second place in the State Essay Contest on "Unity for Peace."

Once again a new sophomore class clambered back through the pillars of Archmere with determination and vigor. This ambition was quite fruitful, too, for many prominent Hgures in the field of sports and scholastics came forth from the Sophs. Diligent scholars, such as Donn Devine, John Kelly, and Francis Filliben have represented their class on the honor roll, while Johnny Wilscnn, Tom Nester, Jim johnson, and Bernie Fagan highlighted the Basketball, Football, and Baseball teams. When the new term opened several newcomers were seen. John Daley, Laine Santa Maria, and Robert Pacyna proved valuable additions to their class. The sophomores chose, for their oilicers, Francis Fil' liben as president, Thomas Nester, vicefpresidentg john McLaughlin, secretary, and jimmy johnson, treasurer. All activities were entered into with utmost enthusif asm. Debate Society are John McLaughlin, John Kelly, and Donn Devine, with John Kane and Bill Hutchison in the Orchestra, and several other sophomores filling the draf matics club. The Sophomores' record under Father Toonen's tute- lage so far is certain proof that as upperclassmen they will be even more outstanding. !5 First Row, left to right: P. DiSabatino, B.

Though they started off on the right foot by attending the annual Mass of the Holy Ghost celebrated by the Very Rev, D. F. Hur' ley, O.Praem., in the Chapel, still it took a few weeks to become acclimated to Archmerian customs and to wear off the irritations that were the upperclassmen. Fortunately Father R. Blecha was the moderator for the class, whose officers were Jim Cavanaugh, Don lvlonigle, Chas. Cutberlet, jack Burr and Bill Shields. A young and inspired squad of gridiron warriors an' swered the call for a midget football team, basketball and baseball also found them ready for competition. The class is splendidly represented in the Phi Sigma Alpha and on the Green Arch and in the select group which is the Junior PATIO staff, as well as in other student activities. They wish to express their gratitude to the Faculty for a very happy year. I 6 REV. j. R. BLECHA, O.PRAEM . X . M. Seated, left to right: C. Brady, A. Monigle, R. Berl, P. Kelly, P. Buckley, D.

DEMERATH, O.PRAEM. Boasting the largest subffreshman roster yet to at' tend Archmere, this year's First and Second Forms claim to he the liveliest group in school. In all activities, whether scholastic, athletic, or social, the suhffrosh have taken a part out of all proportion to their size. Consistently repref sented on the honor roll by Ivlonigle, Allen, and Berl they also supplied much of the manpower of the various midget teams which Father Blecha organized. Separated in their classes into two forms, still they act as a corporate body in relation to the rest of the school and consequently have one moderator, Fr. Demerath, between them and it is he to whom much of their unity and spirit must he atttrihuted. There are three distinct sets of class officers in Forms One and Two, and this was the source of much fun and fight in political campaigning. For the whole group Art Monigle is President, Quillen, VicefPresi- dent, P. Desmond, Secretary, D. Fillingame, Treasurer. For Form II R. Allen, J. Quillen, A. Monigle, P. Desmond are the officers respectively, and for Form I the following: P. Buckley, A. Thompson, D. Berl, !7 'W l I9 3 Lefr to right Mr Degginger, Father Hurley, R. Shiels, W. Dewson, C. Brown, I.

But the very fact that he did so must stand as a testimony of his and the entire staffs fortitude and perseverance in overcoming them. Consequently we must confess that much of the effort normally put into creating a masterwork has had to be spent in creating any book at all in a limited time. And yet the Seniors of the staff and their moderator, Mr. Stuart H. Degginger, are to be praised, if not so much for the book, at least for their gift to the School of a fine profesf sional camera by which the scope of future Patios may be widened im' measurably. The staff composed of the entire Senior Class of 1944 was superbly or' ganized: Editors, james Phillips and James Haley, Business Managers, Wil' liam Dewson and Joseph Tigani, jr,g Associate Editors, for Sports, Charles Brown and John Fillibeng for Organizations, James Cassidy and William Craven, for Photography, Thomas Walsh and Richard Shiels. But no book is possible without the entire school behind it, especially in the matter of financing, in this the Business Managers had the support of a large group of underclassmen fsee page 361 to whom a large measure of their incomparable success is due. 20 First Row Seated, left to right: D.

IHI lillll ARCH In the high cost of printing, the Green Arch fthe bimonthly newspaper of Archmerefhit its First snag this year. In the veritably exclusive participaf tion of the students in athletics, it met its second. These and several other factors, including a change in moderators at the midyear, limited Volume XI to three issues. Mr. G'Brien directed the first issue with a regular staff under the editor' ship of joseph Tigani. For the first time in several years the Green Arch in this edition, and the two succeeding, appeared in its former large size and layout. The second edition was assembled by Father Hurley and Mr. Degginger, who had been editor of the Green Arch in 1939, from the best articles in papers submitted by the different classes in competition. The final edition-W totally an undergraduate productionffwith Mr. Degginer as adviser came out in the final week of school. The submission and acceptance of articles in this issue was made a condition for eligibility for an editorial position next year, and this final paper was organized as a tribute to the graduates of 1944.

PHI SIGMA AlPHA After a lapse of three years the Phi Sigma Alpha fraternity of Arch' mere was reorganized to undertake to defend Archmere in the Wilmington Catholic High Schools' Debating League. Under the direction of Mr. E. V. 0'Brien, who was its founding spirit five years ago, for a short time before he left in january, and then under Mr. S. H. Degginger, a Charter member in 1939, the boys who enrolled at the call became L'Members of the Second Charter." Later, others attracted by the vitalized program were accepted as pledges and are in various stages of initiation. The original Constitutions and Byflsaws were reaffirmed with few abrogations, and the stated purpose was broadened: "to represent Archmere in any cultural activity whenever called upon." In the four debates in the League the several debaters of the Phi Sigma Alpha were in the anomalous position of being able to convince everyone ex' cept the judges. In its first debate Archmere unanimously defeated St. Eliza' beth's, but in the other contests, where a different and disadvantageous sys' tem of voting was employed, it was defeated. A more satisfying activity was the research for and the composition of a radio sketch portraying the littlefknown history of the Norbertine Canons in Pre-Columbian America. 22 Left to right: 1.

Because the members are amateurs and because its main object is to inculcate into the members a true appreciation of music and to give them that satisfied feeling that comes from a piece of music well played, the orchestra must not be ex' pected to play in perfect rhythm and harmony. Mr. Harry Wendel is the well chosen director His understanding and patient nature brings out the best in his somewhat reticent students . . . So much so that no one has ever regretted the time spent in the orchestra. 23 9 9 Left to right: Mrs. W. W. Crawford, Mrs. R. C. Schilly, Mrs. Daley, Mrs. J. H. Cassidy. THE NIIITHERS' lillllll The Mothers Guild, composed of mothers of former and present stu' dents of Archmere, has reaped lasting benefits for the school since its incepf tion. The participation of the mothers in various activities connected with the school has enlivened the spirit of cooperation between the parents and the faculty. This year, as in the past, the Cuild sponsored a Fall and a Spring Card Party with successful results. The mothers again contributed the funds for the medals presented at graduation. Prompted by the war, they have also created a fund to enable a Mass to be said each month for the Archmere boys in the service. For these and other meritorious achievements the mothers well deserve any praise we may render them. At the initial meeting the following officers were elected: Mrs. R. C. Schilly, Presidentg Mrs. J.

Once again Coach Larry Cicero's Green and White foothall team completed an undefeated season, the second in two years for the jersey Coach. Facing such rivals as Friends Central and Conrad, Archmere looked forward to not nearly such a successful year. However, despite a muddy Held, and a thin rain, Archmere downed the strong Friends Central team with . . . . Church Farm O . . Friends Central 0 Wil. Friends O Sanford O Conrad O . . .. St. Andrew's 6 a decided margin. The next few engagements merely added to her everfgrowing scores, while the opposing teams departed from the field with no score whatsoever. The Conrad game was fast and hard, and, although Archmere held a rather large lead, she was forced to give ground quite often to Conf rad's effective passing attacks. Nevertheless Conrad, too, was held scoreless. VARSITY LINE-UP Line, left to right: DeFiore, Nester, Fagan, Galvin, Schilly, Crawford. Backfield: Dick Judge, Bill Hagee, Doherty, Wilson.

The number of gridders was sufficient to form two squads. However, one obstacle blocked the path of a successful seasonflack of opposition. In the few games played the Midgets were victors in a majority of them, Patiently coached by Fathers Blecha und Toonen, the midgets rounded into a team capable of maintaining Archmere's record on the gridiron in the succeeding years. 30 VARSITY First Row, left to right: W.

BASIlllBAll The Archmere cagers enjoyed another sucf cessful court season under the tutelage of Coach Cicero and led by Bill Doherty as Captain. Ferf ris was trounced in the first game: 6161, with Doc scoring 29 points. But in the St, James' game the score turned against Archmere in the last two minutes: 3866. Tower Hill visited the Patio, only to he met hy a 3523 defeat. Then after Christmas the team defeated St. Agnes, 5066, while in the most thrilling game of the season Archmere fell to Claymont, 35-33, after a tiefpoint hy Claymont in the last second sent the game into an extra period, Archmere def feated St. Andrews, 4805, St. James downed the Green, 44-'30, then the Green came into winning stride, defeating St. Agnes, Friends, Sanford, Tower Hill and St. Andrew's for a second time. Claymont closed the season by ending the winning streak: 2400, in a well' played game. The j.V. cagefteam had one of the most sucf cessfhl seasons of recent years in a short schedf ule: four wins and three defeats. In an unf scheduled encounter the Archie J.V.'s defeated the Linwood Boys' Cluh, starring treacherous Tom Walsh. For the first time in its history Archmere was represented hy two Midget teams, coached hy Father Blecha.
