MR. EDWARD V. 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
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.

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

jim has the distinction of being the only
member of the Senior class remaining from the
subffreshman class of '44, Then, too, he has
the credit of being the youngest member of the
graduating class. In the past live years jim has
gained the reputation of being the class car'

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!

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. -

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.

Duke, since entering Archmere last year, has
proven himself astute and gentlemanly. 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'

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!

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.

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.
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
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
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.

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
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

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.

be even more outstanding.

The Class of 1947 entered Archmere on September 13,
1943, to begin their prep school careers. 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

wish to express their gratitude to the Faculty for a very

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.

lHl PATIII STAH
There was much to hinder the publication of a Patio this year, and the
fact that Father Hurley could not see his way to giving his consent until late
in March is fair indication of how great the obstacles were. 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'

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.

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
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
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.

The Archmere orchestra is not to be judged by its size, for it has always
had the distinction of being able to produce praiseworthy music. 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.

school has enlivened the spirit of cooperation between the parents and the
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

Once again Coach Larry Cicero's Green and
White foothall team completed an undefeated
season, the second in two years for the jersey
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

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.
Line, left to right: DeFiore, Nester, Fagan, Galvin, Schilly, Crawford.

In the final game of the season, on St, An'
drew's home field, Archmere led with a 21fO
score, having held the upper hand all the way.
A quick pass brought the Andies down to about
the tenfyard stripe, From here they drove to
within a few feet of the goal, and then over,

The prospects of a Midget team were exceedingly bright this year. 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

season Archmere fell to Claymont, 35-33, after

the game into an extra period, Archmere def
