JOSEPH H. ROONEY, JR. B.S. 44 Oak Avenue Belmont, Mass. History Sodality 1, 2, 3, 4; History Acad- emy 1, 2, 3, 4; Track 1, 2, 4; Spanish Academy 1, 2, 3. " Joe " was a quiet but personable lad with a studious air. He was modest and reticent to a certain degree, yet when the moment came to speak he gave forth logically and clearly, leaving no doubt as to his meaning. A track enthusiast, " Joe " was one of the better runners on Coach Ryder ' s teams. There were few stauncher supporters of things Boston College than he. At a social it was always a pleasure to mingle with so likeable a chap. Serious and thoughtful, he applied himself earnestly in a conscientious pursuit of knowledge. Men like " Joe " aren ' t satisfied with mediocre results. Success will be an inevitable climax to eiforts so assiduously employed.

JAMES M. ROGERS A.B. 483 Winthrop Street Medford, Mass. Latin Sodality 1, 2, 3, 4; History Acad- emy 1, 2, 3; Latin Academy 1. When Jim came to the Heights via Medford High in 1937, he enlisted immediately in the Marine Corps Reserve and today that body constitutes his chief extra-curricular activity and promises to take up a good deal more of his time in the near future. He is majoring in Latin, but probably only as a means to study Caesar ' s military tactics. He loves sailing and spent a good part of last summer on the Potomac River. Rifle shooting also has its appeal, and he has been a member of the Marine Corps rifle team at Charlestown. For the future, he is looking forward to at least a year of service with the Marines as a Second Lieutenant, and perhaps it may be longer. Good luck to you Jim.

WILLIAM S. ROONEY B.S. 10 Pierce Ave. Dorchester, Mass. Social Science Sodality 1, 2, 3, 4; Dramatics 1, 2, 3; Marquette 1, 2; Radio Club 1, 2. " Long Bill " Rooney came to us from Boston College High School, where he was well known. Bill followed a brother and father to these hallowed walls. However, he did not rest on the laurels of these prede- cessors, hut set out to carve a name for himself. He was engaged in sev- eral extra-curricular activities, such as the Sodality, Marquette, Radio Club, and Dramatics. His spirit, for the school in general, and the football team in particular, was well known. Bill ' s hobby was writing and in this line he showed considerable promise. He also showed interest in swimming, golfing and tennis. It is hard to predict just what field this versatility of character will enter, but we are sure that he will eventually succeed, what- ever may be his choice.
