Text from Pages 1 - 174 of the 1957 volume:

Let a college be such that it draws the majority of its faculty members from a religious society which through the centuries has earned a fame which transcends national and religious lines in the field of education. Let a college be such that it attempts in all branches of secular learning to demonstrate that secular learning, important as it is to man's material advancement, is not an end in itself but an in- strument to enable man to achieve his ultimate goal-union with God. Let that college be such that it immerses the student in the deep well of philosophical thought that he may see with the clarity of human reasoning the bonds which tie him and the objects with which he is surrounded both to each other and to God. Let that college be such that it gives the student a good back- ground in the apologetics and theology of his church for both his own sake and for the sake of those to whom he may be a Christ- bearer in todays Christless society. Let that college be such that it imbues the student, through the study of history, with the tools necessary to watch with insight the inception and decay, the flow and stagnation of the institutions man has erected in his halting progress through the centuries. Let that college be such that it introduces the student to the most abstract of all sciences, mathematics, that he may see for himself the heights to which the human mind can soar, unaided, unimpeded by the mass of reality. Let that college be such that it throws open to the student the door to the constantly expanding natural sciences which probe the mechanical mysteries of man and his world that he may, with- out losing himself in the intense specialization, view the order and harmony of God's creation. Let that college be such that it enables the student to draw back from his own milieu and enter into the thought patterns of an- other culture with its own peculiar development and characteristics by the proficient use of a foreign language. Let that college be such that it imparts to the student that in- culcation of principle necessary to dip into the newer and less settled sciences which seek to illuminate the darkness which sur- rounds man considered as a social entity. Let that college be called by its name . . . FAIRFIELD. THE X RED f ' 4 f b I o 51. l.l.l A 1, f x 1, Xi I if W ., 1 f . ' 91 f ' tl X W . ', NW-5",f, xxf' J Af- XX I I wj .

FITZGERALD, S.J President, Eairiield University OFFICE OF DEAN FAIRFIELD UNIVERSITY FAIRFIELD, CONN. CLASS OF l957 FAIRFIELD UNIVERSITY FAIRFIELD, CONN. Mere motion is often mistaken for progress. Marching or maundering, time does go on: whether progress is made depends not on our sense of movement but on forward accomplishment within a definite frame of reference. "Sig- nificance is born within the frame," as a modern poetess succinctly states. Ten years ago the first Freshman Class was admitted to the College of Arts and Sciences, Fairfield University. Within the short span of a decade the College has gradu- ated seven classes, sent her sons into the various professions, increased her enrollment, gained academic recognition and stature, and launched a considerable program of expansion. This has been a decade of motion, obviously, but, surely, also of progress. For, within the frame, Within the clearly defined objectives of Jesuit education, the emerging history of Fairfield University shows genuine growth and develop- ment. Basic principles and the traditions of Jesuit educa- tion supplied a terminus a quog and the terminus ad quem, if immediately the formation of her students to accept the demands and responsibilities of her chosen careers and professions, has always been, clearly, inspiringly, ultimately, the greater glory of God. The progress made is shared in a special way by the Class of 1957 and has been made the special theme of this year's MANOR. To all the members of the class we express our gratitude for their cooperation, our congratulations for their achievement, and our prayerful best wishes for their own personal progress. Sincerely, REV. WILLIAM J. I-IEALY, SJ. Q EDITOR-IN-CHIEF 'I957 MANOR FAIRFIELD UNIVERSITY MEMBERS OF THE CLASS OF 'I957 FAIRFIELD UNIVERSITY FAIRFIELD, CONNECTICUT Gentlemen : We are proud to present to you the yearbook of the Class to which you belong. As one can see, this book is a record of the events, accomplishments, and progress of one of the greatest classes in the brief history of Fairfield. In our estimation, it is the greatest class. The reasons for the greatness are both intrinsic and extrinsic. One would be hard put to name them as such. They can, however, be reduced to three major groups: the school, the faculty, and ourselves. Further analysis of the reasons shall be left to the yearbook itself. Let the mere mention of them sufiice for the moment. It is in conjunction with this three-fold basis that an unfinished obliga- tion comes to mind. Because of our achievements and progress we owe a three-fold debt of gratitude: to the faculty who have disciplined us until we can discipline ourselves, and who have counseled and directed us in our efforts, to the members of our class who have worked that our record may be a cherished one, and to the staff who have compiled this memento of four college years. May we continue to work with the zeal and spirit which have character- ized the Class of '57, so that as alumni, we may hold as high a place as was held during our undergraduate years.

My wife brought in the mail this morning and tucked amidst the bills was a long white envelope bearing the re- turn address, "Permanent Re-union Committee, Fairfield University." The letter within transmitted a calm simple invi- tation to return to the Tenth Anniversary celebra- tion for my graduating class. I wonder if those people have ever realized what a thing like that can do to a man's day? For the next few hours, my mind was filled with all sorts of recollections . . . basketball games, dances, exams, personalities. I could even remember as far back as those first crowded days and the people that filled them. The class that entered Fairfield in the Fall of 1953 encompassed a variety of backgrounds and abilities. Many of them were veterans of the Korean conflict and they carried with them the measured calmness of experience that served as a leaven to the whole. The majority came directly from high or prep school and wore the buoyancy of youth facing up to their first real challenge. It was not difficult to recall Mr. Donnarumma greeting his class with a cheery countenance and then regaling them with uproarious tales. It was less difiicult to recall his first test. "Sic transit gloria mundi" was the first of many Latin phrases to which I was to be introduced. The Harvest Hop introduced us to the social life of the college. The bright yellow moon outside, and within, candles that flicked their light upon the corn- husks cluttered at each table ,... it was a portrait of Autumn created in miniature. The arrival of Bishop Shehan to assume his new role as "magister" of the newly-created diocese of Bridgeport was an event of major importance. The student body was excused from classes and, banner and all, trooped to Bridgeport to greet him. The balloting for nomination to Student Council was an affair of confusion. Out of its tangled oratory emerged several able men. Jim Rourke, Jack Ryan, .. 1? 'U' M '5.,RC b .T rl -" -fa -- Walt Shanley, and George Myers finally sat as our representatives and through their tireless efforts the welfare of the class prospered. I can recall the great pride we felt when the Uni- versity Glee Club made its debut at Carnegie Hall in the opening affair of the New York concert sea- son. The reception was tremendous and complimen- tary reviews appeared in many of the city's news- papers. New Frontiers appeared on the campus for the first time that year. It was a polished, literate pro- duction that cast credit upon the freshmen who had contributed to it. Father John Bonn was the guiding hand behind its publication and he gave to it the gem-like brilliance of his many-faceted self. Our introduction to Westport society followed shortly after the turn into the new semester. The gracious Longshore Country Club housed numerous freshmen at the first formal of the Spring. A goodly number of us, however, needed little in- troduction to the life and habitus of the exurbanite. Breakfast in Meridan, or New Haven, or Stamford and 9:00 a.m. coffee in Fairfield was a common-place event that drew small comment. We named Dick Wolfe our first president. Dick, a graduate of Xavier, was one of the best liked fellows on campus. It was unfortunate for us that we enjoyed his leadership and friendly manner for but a short while. That summer, Dick entered the Jesuit novitiate at Shadowbrook. Jim Rourke, who had run next to Dick in the balloting, was chosen to succeed to the position. "Whitey" Halligan, Dick Martin, and Bill Labrecque filled out the list of officers. The closing weeks are lost in a swirl of images, bright and tempestuous, whose edges lack definitive strokes as though done by Matisse. Oddly enough, the easiest things to remember are the personal quirks and minor eccentricities that separate one individual from the other. But then the year was swift and jumbled, and suddenly, without being wholly aware of it, we were sophomores. aff 46 Ji . ,L ii 15 if ei'-'-jizz' . .qi lj I: , if Class Hi tory, 19 41955 I' Sophomore registration held little fear for the class. The clubs harvested hundreds of members as embryonic politicians blossomed. One enterprising sophomore registered his name with sixteen organi- zations. He undoubtedly would have been one of Fairfield's most memorable graduates had it not been for his breakdown. The ethical proofs of Plato form part of a very unusual set of notes delivered by the most striking individual of the faculty. John A. Meaney was, to put it quite frankly, a holy terror. His thunderous jeremiads often accompanied a warm smileg and not infrequently a cheery "good morning" would precede an ultimatum to destroy one's white bucks before coming to next class. Some of us were angered by him, most of us were educated, but all of us were influenced. As I recall, "John A." left during sum- mer vacation before the start of our senior year, to teach in the Arts Faculty at St. George's College in the British West Indies. We finally settled the blazer issue during that year. Aside from an occasional 'Tally-ho', little was said concerning their blazing red color. I don't remember whether or not most were pleased by the choice but at least the argument was settled. The Bellarmine Debating Society stepped into high gear and challenged many of the smaller New Eng- land and Metropolitan colleges to an intellectual joust. It was rumored at the time that President J no Catalani wore out two pairs of glasses during the season. The tax levied by the Student Council soon sur- passed the blazer question as the most controversial issue of the year. Apparently, few realized the strength of the Poujadist party on the campus. The tax seemed to have a double effect. It was levied, despite the anguished outcries of the Student Coun- cil. The basketball team swept to an upset victory over Boston College in the opening game of the season. Paced by Pedro Tagatac and under the managerial tutelage of Bob Newall, the team led all the way to record one of the sweetest victories in its history. A huge motor caravan, originating at the school, 1 S., had wound through the streets of Bridgeport to an- nounce the game to the Park City. The older men at school organized the first Vete- ran's Club and began their meetings in that unofficial extension, Healy Hall, on the down-town campus. They very quickly adopted an official coat of arms, a gory shield, upon which was emblazoned an empty tin can bearing the words, "Bellum est helium" It seems that in that year the Winter Carnival was held at the Ritz Ballroom. For the majority of the class it was their first university formal. The ice carvings occupied their much disputed but honored place at the end of the dancing area. Latin-American music and the latest steps held sway, and the faculty outdid the student body in performance on the floor. Sophomores monopolized the CISL delegation at Hartford. Jim Rourke was junior delegate and Teddy Measom his able second. Fairfield's most important bill on the subject of education was passed by both houses after a brilliant defense by Jim. We worked out a program for freshman orienta- tion so that the incoming freshmen would not be thrown into the same hurly-burly into which we had wandered. As potential juniors, the program was left in our hands for the coming fall. Jim Rourke took care of the arrangements and appointed a large committee to work along with him. In May, Bob Imbro succeeded as president of the class. Bob was a wonderful leader, with great ability and integrity. A former student at Shadowbrook, he had done his tour of duty with the Armed Forces before coming to Fairield. Walt Shanley, Sal Fama, and Mike Joyce rounded out the roster of officers. Student Council elections brought Dave McCarthy, Jack Coss, Bob Newall, and Al Avitabile into the public eye as guardians of the class interest. Final exams halted the scholastic career of a num- ber of our class. Mr. Meaney saw to it that the rhetorical ability of every student was well tested. Not everyone can re-write the Gettysburg Ad- dress. And then, suddenly, we were juniors and members of the scholastic upper class. 9 Z The new dorm, Loyola Hall, was completed when we returned to the campus. Some of the men had a little difiiculty in becoming accustomed to such luxury. To a good many of us, however, the Merritt Parkway wore the same broad, blank smile it had since time immemorial, or at least since the fall of '53. There was a radical change. The Logical Lovelies, Barbara, Dario, Ferio, and Celarent supplanted even Marilyn in conversation. The most deadly phrase became, "Smith, you're an absolute nothing. You're not even privative !" I offer the following definition purely as an aside: the Specimen is an intellectual lottery in which the first prize is the opportunity to demonstrate openly to your friends that which they had already sus- pected. We also learned that the earth weighs six sex- tillion, etc., etc., tons. Well . . . ah . . . The Student Council became a Junior debating society to all appearances. Jim Rourke was seated at the right hand as Vice-President, Dave McCarthy signed his name "T. Colman Andrews" and glared at anyone not on his lists who threw money away on food and books. John Coss took notes in an upright hand and periodically nailed them to the door of the Stag office. The Public Affairs-International Relations Club made its debut on the campus scene that fall. Six debates and four duels had been held in Room 212 by Christmas time. The official seal of upperclass stature was received when the red-stoned rings appeared just before the holidays. Mid-year exams were a slight hurdle to some of us, but Father Molloy and the "Epistemos Logos" conspiracy were defeated in good fashion. Second Semester saw several appointments. Ted Measom and Dave Barry were named Editors of the Stag. The Class President appointed Dave McCarthy Editor-in-Chief of the Manor. Paul Check was named Chairman of Junior Week. Election posters covered the walls in April. Jack Coss and Tom Fitzgerald went all out for the Presi- dency. Free speech and free coffee were characteris- tic of the campaign. Both were well qualified for the honor and the passing years have not changed either in that regard. Sal Fama, Al Avitabile, and Bob Killen rounded out the slate behind Tom. Shortly .afterward Sal was elected Prefect of the Sodality. 1' Q55 Y . I.: -'Q Q, L, .sg .'-'M . 4 Ls 5- I 1:1 Q . tg: . x -,QQ .L Z U.

The usual clamor arose, demanding that classes be held outside. The pond was the chosen site, but unfortunately it met with the usual reaction. Jim Rourke was honored by his election to the post of President of the New England Region of NFCCS. He paused at the campus just long enough to receive congratulations and then was off again. The record of achievement that year contained two of the most progressive steps in Fairfield's his- tory. The first was the setting up of the Freshmen Orientation System, so excellently accomplished that fall. The second was the institution of Ignatian Council, Number 4203, of the Knights of Columbus. Jack Flaherty, Paul Check, and Bob Imbro were among those who had labored to make it a reality. Jack was elected Grand Knight of the new council following the initiation of fifty-two charter members. The traditional Junior Prom was held in May at beautiful Laddin's Terrace in Stamford. Gold, shim- mering light focused on the soft loveliness of our dates in the gentle whirl of the year's biggest social event. The committee basked in the reflection of suc- cess as the evening slipped to a close. Junior year had captured a spirit that is hard to define now that so many months and years have intervened. There was a certain pride in being an upperclassman, and yet a certain expectancy in knowing that Senior year was yet to come. The exams had a new twist that year. The written tests were no different but they had a companion, the oral. Somehow, the greater part of us got through without collapsing from nervous prostra- tion. It was a relief 'co feel the heavy mantle of exams and quizzes slip from our shoulders. I don't think too many of us realized the heavier responsibilities that would be ours in the fall. Before Junior year was over, however, news came of the tragic holocaust at Shadowbrook, It seemed particularly close when we thought of our former classmates who had gone there to prepare for the Fairfield of today and for many other Jesuit colleges. Today there is a new Shadowbrook, more modern, better equipped to cope with the need of the Society of Jesus in the modern world. I think that one thing that we can look back on with pride is the modest contribution that we made to the construction fund. It is almost as though we had ensured a permanent memorial to our college days. lx -' 'll' l ' - af t Class lli tor , 19 6-1957 The Fall of Senior year brought many changes to the campus. Pipes became much more common than in previous years, a certain sign of the development of a leisure class. Some unknown saint cleaned out the Stag office and room was found for four or five more coffee drinkers, philosophers, politicians, and elder states- men. Ground was broken on the far side of the campus for two buildings, part of a million dollar expansion program. Planned were a new classroom building designed to meet the expanding needs of the student body and the growing library, a second dormitory building to care for the increasing number of resi- dents, and a long awaited gymnasium to house the champion-toppling basketball team. Dave McCarthy announced a meeting in the Man- or ofiice for his vice-presidents. All of them showed up, however, and the meeting was held in Berch- mans Auditorium. Elections were held for the presidency of the Stu- dent Council and Bob Imbro came out on top. Hardly anyone deserved it more. Bob, who became a bene- dict during the summer, stepped in with ease to handle the rugged job. Several biology majors succeeded in creating life in the laboratory but Fr. Lyons stepped in and made them quit. Rules, you know. John Coss was elected campus delegate to the Col- legiate Commission on the United Nations but ac- cepted only after receiving assurances that the Security Council would be moved to Connecticut. Jim Rourke, new president of the New England Region of the NFCCS, settled down to the hard job of guiding the NF activities of thousands of college students in New England. Despite the long hours spent in preparing speeches, writing letters, and traveling, Jim found the time to earn a place well up in the academic lists. The Senior Retreat was held in November under the direction of Father Bonn. Father's brilliant wit and ability as a preacher caught the class up into his hands and left us as little children when he closed the exercises with an awesome depiction of the suffering Christ in his last days before the crucifixion. Shortly afterward, the first Help Week in the university's history was inaugurated. It was an ex- cellent exercise in charity towards one's friends and neighbors for the class and the wish was expressed that the custom be perpetuated. Mid-year finals hit hard. Students wore a worried expression as they cut class to head for the cafeteria. No one fell by the wayside, however, despite Anable and Fagothey. There was one man on campus who remained unaffected by the hurly-burly of exams. John "Cag" was lost in a world of his own. "Cag" served as chairman of the best social week- end the university had seen: The 1957 Winter Car- nival. Snow on the roof, the crisp blue air, the danc- ing gowns were all a touch of the fantasy that "Cag" conjured. The CISL weekend in Hartford drew the usual crowd from Fairfield. True to tradition the Stag delegation went all out to pass the most controver- sial bills. Easter came and passed again and with it the first closed retreat for Seniors-for a graduating class. Spring brought to the campus its perennial flower- ing beauty and the concomitant rumor that Someone was distilling Dandelion wine in the old cabin. I can recall the finals very clearly. The orals ran for fifteen minutes and they were tough. It seems almost impossible now to think one's knowledge of a year's study could be tested within that short span of time, but it was. I think that one of the most important lessons I gained while at Fairfield was summed up in that quiz. If a man can think on his feet, without getting rattled, then he has learned the first step in the long process of self-mastery. And then it was over. Four years of college and fifteen minutes of philosophical stammering and it was all over. Senior week was magnificent: the picnic, and par- ticularly the ball. The last day was a day of triumph and sorrow. To most of us it was a farewell until re-union year, to some of us it was simply farewell. There was a simple phrase that all of us felt but few of us voiced as we shook hands with our friends: Well Done. agp' 1957, Ave Atque Vale! Wa...

It is not a club one joins, but a life one leads. It is not a hobby, it is a vocation." Four years have seen Fairfield's Sodality flour- ish as only a thing of more than mere physical unity can flourish. Today, it is respected by col- leges throughout New England and New York. They have heard its vigorous voice at Sodality Conventions, at conferences of the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine, at Summer Schools of Catholic Action. In our immediate area our C.C.D. unit has swelled to a force of forty men, going weekly into parishes of the Bridgeport and Hart- ford Dioceses to teach the young. On campus, the Mission collections, daily Rosaries, stamp drives, the spread of Catholic literature, and fostering of devotion to the Sacred Heart-all have grown along with the Sodality. Four years have meant growth, not only from within, but they have meant beginnings too. We have a new moderator. We have a new unit, the Dactylology Club, organizing meetings eagerly anticipated each month by the deaf-mutes of the area. We have a new altar for Masses in Xavier Hall. We have a new monthly publication of our own, the "Flos Campi", several articles of which have been reprinted in national Sodality maga- zines. We have had several of our Sodalists leave us for the religious life. In the past four years the Sodality has solidified its Work through its three-fold aim-self-sanctifi- cation, salvation and sanctification of our neigh- bor, and defense of the Church. Our task is obvi- ously large. But so is the Kingdom of Christ and the reward of love! kes the difference. This is What ma ,ai You diana know t hat, did .You ? He opens the way for us to follow.

Ryan, The Student Council was founded in the fall of 1947, for the purpose of acting as mediator be- tween students and faculty, and for the regulation of all college activities. The organization has a multiplicity of functions, and has been the driving force behind our well-rounded schedule of activi- ties. There are twenty-three members elected from the four classes in addition to a parliamen- tarian. Robert's Rules of Order and the Marquis of Queensbury Rules govern all meetings and elec- tions. However, good will is always present, especially at May election time, when many pitched battles may be avoided by a cup of coffee in the right place. This cordial feeling lasts until the first meeting of the Council in September, when sides are taken, and tactical deployments made for the battle plan. The initial engagement of the 1954-1955 season was the Blazer Issue. After a long series of good natured hassles, a quorum was able to meet, despite plaster casts and bandages, and cardinal red reigned supreme over midnight blue, canary yellow, and morning- after green. Running true to form, the 1955-56 Council decided to bury the hatchet, and after it had been buried in the midst of the Student Body, it was decided to collect a tax of one dollar from each student. The affair was successful, illustrated by the fact that better than fifty percent of the Council paid. Senior year clouds, scattered on the horizon, were soon brought directly over our heads. The Council voted to limit the number of activities in which an individual student may participate, while simultaneously revamping the point system. Thus, our Jesuit training had at least instilled in us the notion of limited perfection, as well as that of over-extended rhetoric. This is the Student Counc1l" h I 4 LI Whose wife is chubby?

The Public Affairs-International Relations Club has served as the parent organization for all the politi- cal clubs on the campus since its re- organization in 1955. Previously, two distinct organizations, one the Pub- lic Affairs Forum, the other the In- ternational Relations Club were just two of the many political clubs in the College which often worked at cross purposes and competed for members and precious activity time. Since the reorganization the P.A.- I.R.C. has channeled the activities of the minor political clubs and dove- tailed their separate activities into a 60 more unified pattern. Whenever a sub-club, such as the Collegiate Dem- ocrats or Republicans, could set up a program of general interest to the student body, or whenever a speaker of universal interest was obtainable, the P.A.-I.R.C. sponsored meetings to present these features to the entire student body. In this way greater in- terest in Public Affairs is promoted among the students. P.A.-I.R.C. spon- sored many interesting lectures, de- bates, and panel discussions which otherwise would have been limited to the narrower audiences of particular clubs. Judge James Rourke presiding. The Student Speaks. .. The culmination of twelve months' preparation was realized during second semester in Hartford. where a delegation from Fairfield attended the annual Connecticut Intercollegiate Student Legis- lature. The purpose of this legislature is to allow the interested students from the various colleges in Connecticut to participate in mock assembly, thus gaining a close insight into the workings of gov- ernment. This is aided by a system whereby each delegation presents two bills on controversial topics. These bills must run the gamut of the com- mittees and both houses before they are made into "law," Here it was that the work of the moderator and delegates crystallized, for Fairf1eld's past bills have been very controversial, strongly opposed, though eventually passed. These bills included Public Funds for Private Education, establish- ment of a Port Authority, an act reducing the powers of county sheriffs. a bill abolishing the Fair Trade laws, and an act establishing state scholarships for resident students. Laying the groundwork for the passage of these bills is a diflicult task, but the success in accom- plishing such an end is very rewarding. Such success was due only to the tireless efforts of the delegation. A new year is beginning. The time for prepara- tion is drawing near. Recalling the excellent ac- complishments of the Seniors who have graduated cannot help but provide an impetus for those who hope to fill their shoes. The Politician Dodd's good .

The interests and opportunity of the youth of America are vitally affected by the policies of govern- ment. The events of today will de- termine the kind of country that our children will inherit. The most effective way by which we can make an enduring contribution to sound and good government for to- morrow's society is through educa- tion and actual participation in the processes of democracy. For this purpose the Fairfield University Democratic Club was Keish, J. Weiss, T. Roach, E. Zadravec, W Lavery J. Rourke. Row 3, l-r: R. Richards, T. Monks R Carroll, D. Barry, P.

These took an active part in the Steven- son Presidential campaign, for this offered them an opportunity to participate actively in National politics, and such an activity is a proving ground for leadership and a means of developing organizing ability. We know that our organi- zation has encouraged young voters to take an active interest in politics and public affairs. x fi I P .. lm!

A branch of the Public Affairs-International Relations Club, the Collegiate Republican Club was founded in the heat of the 1956 Presidential Elections. Its membership included two directors of the state parent organization. Among the many activities in which the club participated were the mock election on campus, sponsorship of campus lectures, and the actual Could there be a difference of opinion here? national election campaigns. Many of the group worked with the Fairfield Citizens for Eisenhower in canvassing the town voting districts and in promoting a Pledge to Vote contest.

J., the "Waterfront Priest" of Phila- delphia. In this year of 1957 the Business Club widened its functions by presenting Corporation co-spon- sored dinners and plant tours, publishing a sta- tistical research, and analysis of the positions of the past graduates of the college, publishing a business paper, and offering other activities such as movies and aids for students planning their futures. Progress has been the foundation of this Club and the accomplishments of 1957 attest to the added prestige the Club will carry in future years.

In March of 1956, Fairfield University received its charter as the site of the first college council of the Knights of Columbus in the State of Connecti- cut. Since the council was being formed during the Jesuit Ignatian Year, commemorating their four hundredth year of flourishing success, the small nu- cleus of an organizational committee chose the name Ignatian to symbolize their hopes of successful achievements on the part of this council in a Jesuit atmosphere. The drive for a campus council was initially gene- rated by John Flaherty '57, who convinced the Rec- tor of the need for this unit of strength in the lay apostolate among Catholic College men. Upon recep- tion of the Rector's approval, the organizational proceedings and planning were immediately carried out by the Rev. T. Everett McPeake, S.J., and by the University Registrar, Mr. Robert Pitt, Paul Check '57, and Bob Imbro '57, Finally, on April 15, 1956, the first class of forty men were received into the Knights of Columbus and a new council was pledged to further the aims of Catholicism by means of all the facets of the lay activity. Since its inauguration the council has flour- ished as a center of the concerted activity of men willing to donate their time and energies to the furthering of Catholic thought. .F.C.C.. af!

JAMES ROURKE New England Regional President S.J. bach, R. Cox, J. Catalani. The National Federation of Catholic College Students, made up of 200,000 Catholic collegians, is geographically divided into regions throughout the country. It is a representative body, the voice of national Catholic College thought. It is also a service organization, having under its jurisdiction a group of commissions, 'students or- ganized to specialize in one phase of life to which Catholic faith pertains. The organization's primary purpose of furthering Catholic Action and the Lay Apostolate among our students provides the motivation for the workshops which are presented by these commis- sions and the material which they send out to various campus clubs. The topics treated by these groups range from Liturgy, Mariology, and Family Life to International Relations and Forensics. Fairfield University is a member of the New England Region. Seated on our campus are two of the more important and highly active commissions, those of Family Life and Forensics. The campus unit has been a vital factor in the prestige and fame won by New England throughout the nation. More workshops are held on campus than on any other of comparable size. Further renown has been reaped through the acquisition of two regional presidencies in the past three years by Fairfield students. 68 .

Its members are invited to participate only upon completion of a high average in their junior philosophy studies. Their philosophical pursuits have led them to delve into a two-fold topic this year: the first phase encompassing a "friend" in the current American scene, New Realism, and the second phase dealing with an "enemy", the attempt of Science to rule out Philosophy as a valid source of REV. JOHN DONOGHUE, S.J. Moderator, Aquinas Academy, Debating Society knowledge. The members divide themselves into groups according to their individual interests. The New Realism specialists worked in conjunc- tion with similar groups from Boston College. The Academy proudly displays the results of its study at annual symposia which are presented before the entire Junior and Senior classes and guests in Berchmans Auditorium. In these semi- nars their discussions shed much light on the philosophical problems of the day. K . Row 1: G. Grom, D. McCarthy, R. Piscatelli, Imbro. Row 2: A. Avitabile, T. Larkin, W. F.

Through a system of weekly intramural and bi-monthly intercollegiate debating, the Bellarmine debaters became authoritative on the National Debate Topic. The intramural debates give the members a chance to test their speech-making ability and constructive arguments, while the inter- collegiate sessions, both on and off campus, yield excellent critiques by impartial judges and an opportunity to seek that cherished effect every orator desires. As the College enrollment progresses, the resources of the Society be- come more plentiful. With this continuous supply of interest and ability the efficiency and efficacy of the Club will be strengthened. During the past four years Fairfield's debaters have been recognized as one of the more powerful societies in New England. Victories over neigh- boring Colleges and in New England Tournaments have attested to this fact. In 1956, the society won the NFCCS Debate Tournament after a very successful year. Debate engagements have taken the group to Colleges and Tournaments as far away as Washington, D. C. and Burlington, Vermont. 7'l - 'Tir' el'-. , ,',? ,Q l- 4 ' .W .1. UQQBJJ mg.-e R...

Some of the many workers had previous yearbook experience, others supplemented this experience with their individual talents. Several days that would normally have been considered as part of a vacation were spent by these men typing, drawing up page sketches, cap- tioning pictures, looking up information, and do- ing the other thousand and one things that are required of such a staff. It was the hope of the group that they would be able to put out a book which would mirror the glory and fame of the Class of '57 adequately. It was this goal which inspired their long hours and many meetings in the "spacious" Stag-Manor office. The work involved, the thrill of publishing the book, the business dealings with the publisher, the photographer, and others add up to an experience which will be a lasting 'part of the staff's memory. ang ' The g 31 1 ,NN --' 6 3' sux' I d0n't believe jf.

For it was four members of the class, then Freshmen, who were responsible for the conception of the magazine. The goals of the publication were summarily stated in its first issue in the Spring of 1954: "NEW FRON- TIERS is a magazine. By that, of course, we do not necessarily mean that it is illiterate, but rather that in days when even The Saturday Review of Litera- ture has become merely The Saturday Review, We feel that a broader scope of interest is valuable and demanded .... This magazine, which we like to con- sider as a bright star on the horizon, represents the thinking and achievements of all the departments of the University." Since that first issue editors have come and gone, the staff has expanded, and the magazine has become a twice-yearly event. Yet NEW FRONTIERS has kept faith with the prin- ciples Hrst laid down for it, continuing to present a wide range of reading from the conventional to the avante-garde, continuing to preserve a happy combination of scope and selectivity.

Over the past four years the radio audience of the greater Bridgeport area have heard a number of unique broadcasts. Panel dis- cussions on current topics, pertinent guest lecturers, and student seminars make up the yearly agenda. Although relatively young, the organi- zation has improved steadily in scope and imagination as evidenced by the program- ing. Beginning next year, the Club hopes to work in cooperation with the College Athletic Association, in the broadcasting of basketball and baseball games. The Club is currently working on plans to present tape recordings of dramatic declamations, given by members of the College Players, and debate speeches, given by members of the Bellarmine Debaters. The adoption of these plans along with the annual full agenda of the Club guarantees many more successful years. The CHE I TRY CLUB The Chemistry Majors at the College are offered an opportunity to exchange ideas with the Chemis- try Clubs of the six neighboring Colleges through the facilities of the Chem Club here on campus. Activities of the year include at least two seminars between the area Chemistry Majors, at which our members have participated in stimulating technical talks on various phases of the chemical world.

Through the succession of capable men in the office of President, there has emerged a desirable club with a firm foundation in its fervent mem- bers. One of the chief functions of the Mendel Club is the publication of "The Nucleus", a pre-profes- sional journal of outstanding caliber praised by alumni, professional friends, and other Universi- ties.

At the weekly meetings there is a guest speaker from among the under-graduates. The highlights of the year are the elections of new officers and the annual banquet which the Mendel Club gift to the biology department is presented. The Mendel Club is distinguished among others of the Biology Clubs for its unity and activity which have made it the widely-known, outstanding campus club that it is.

Following the tradition of the campus language clubs, the French Club conducts its activities each year toward one main objective, the construc- tion of a truly French atmosphere which can be absorbed by not only the immediate members of the club but the entire student body. The annual banquet, held in the Fairfield area, is open to all the men of the College and their guests. Featured at this stimulating evening is an authority in some aspect of French culture. Movies depicting the scenic countryside of France and documentaries on French literature, art, archi- tecture, etc., held on campus twice monthly, are also inviting to the entire College enrollment. Because of the devoted efforts of the Club Moderator and the untiring energy of the officers, the French Club has been applauded by the Uni- versity Administration ever since its inception for the genuine advance- ment of understanding of the French people and their life that it offers. 84 The ED CATIO L B CDG W F2 it 2 Row 1, l-r: J.

Lectures and field trips provide the members with interesting and informative experiences, to follow up the theory which is supplied in class. This year the Sociology Club, in conjunc- tion With the "Criminology" and "Methods - of Social Research" courses of Sociology Y"'51-ff-3 majors, has been delegated by the State Commission for Study of Criminal Institu- tions, through Rev. John L. Bonn, S.J., for These hot dogs are delicimls' a special project in fact-finding.

From a humble beginning of some twenty- five "pioneer members," the organization has grown, to its present status of sixty. The "Vets Club", as it is known to the student body, strives to eliminate the com- mon difiiculties of the veteran students and to foster their social activities on campus. In addition, the club's social affairs have been extended to the entire student body.

A College with a complete athletic pro- gram would not be able to function properly without an enthusiastic Athletic Association behind it. Such is the case with Fairfield. The essential aspects of any team are most often behind the scenes. Tasks like broadcasting, managing, an- nouncing, outfitting, etc., are all conducted by the Student Athletic Association, made up of members of all four classes at the College. It is these men who are responsible for the fostering of school spirit and of participation in the varsity and intramural programs set up by the Administration. An example of the fine work done by these men in past years in the successful "Beat B.C." rally held on campus prior to the an- nual Boston College basketball game. This activity, complete With band, police escort, and painted eagle is supported by the entire student body.

The Bridgeport Area Club, since that time, has financially aided and spiritually encouraged many men in com- ing to Fairfield by giving out scholarships and setting the mature example of the Catholic College undergraduate. The most popular activity of the Club, of course, is the traditional Glee Club concert at the Klein Memorial in Bridgeport. The con- cert along with the annual dance with St. Vincent's School of Nursing and the fabu- lous Jazz Concert on the campus, make up a stimulating social calendar. Another function of the Club is the spreading of Catholic action by presenting the members with various projects, such as guest-lec- turing and Catholic Literature selling.

In the past four years, due to these functions and activities of the Club, the spirit of Fairfield has been preserved and strengthened in the Bridgeport Area. ,ix Row 1, 1-r: P. Tagatac, J.

During the past four years, the Norwalk Area Association has grown rapidly, keeping pace with the growth of the College. To sup- plement curricular and extra-cur- ricular activities on and off campus has been the purpose of the club, and the reason for the c1ub's sub- stantial support of all the students proceedings at North Benson Road. The "Secordia Club", as the As- sociation is referred to by its mem- bers, has held a number of memor- able communion breakfasts at which a member of the Faculty or another distinguished guest speaks to the men. The success of the dances and other social activities has made the students from Nor- walk into a strong example of the goodness of Catholic social life. M-A Through continued devotion to the patron of Fairfield, St. Robert Bellarmine, it strives to instill in its members the virtues and char- acter which will enable them to influence others toward a life of Christian humility and prayer.

This event is preceded by a Freshman Welcome Dance in the Fall and followed by a Senior Farewell Picnic held appropri- ately at Lighthouse Point. Since its inception, the Club has pre- 1. nm sented numerous scholarships to deserv- ing students from the New Haven area. Funds for this financial assistance are provided by sponsorship of an annual Fairfield University Glee Club Concert. In May of 1955, the Club substantially aided the Shadowbrook Fund in its at- tempt to restore the Jesuit Novitiate which was completely razed by fire the previous March. This was another ex- ample of the beneficial activities which the Club undertakes throughout the aca- demic year in fulfilling its primary aim. X X Row 1, l-r: J. Gilmore, J. Gorszwick, A.

To promulgate and instill in the minds of the people of Waterbury the name and ideals of Fairfield University shall be the purpose of the Waterbury Area Club." This purpose, expounded in 1948 in the Club's constitution, has been completely ful- filled in the eight years following its incep- tion. The club, through the hard work of its members and the generosity of the people of Waterbury, has given the University 34,000 in Scholarships. This money has provided sixteen Waterbury men with the necessary monetary support to begin their college edu- cation. The money for these scholarships comes from the animal Glee Club Concert and also from the Annual Card Party. Besides providing Scholarships, the Club also carries out many social functions through the year for the enjoyment of its members. It sponsors a Clambake for the Freshmen, a Christmas dance in honor of the Waterbury Alumni, a Spring dance in honor of the graduating Seniors, and most important, all its members attend the Annual Alumni Communion Breakfast held every Mother's Day. 93 The Hartford Club was founded to provide a common social organization for those men of the University living in Hartford and surrounding towns, as well as to provide whatever financial assistance and publicity it can for Fair- field. In the past the Hartford Club has sponsored many Glee Club concerts which enabled the Club to provide scholarships for worthy members of the Hartford area who wished to enter Fairfield. In addition, these popular concerts contributed greatly to publiciz- ing the University in the area. The group holds an annual Father and Son Communion breakfast in Hart- ford during the Christmas recesses. Socially the Hartford Club has an- nual Easter dances enjoyed by members and alumni, Christmas parties, and summer picnics. N'-A 'J' 1 Row 1, I-r: F. Nadeau, R. Burke, J. Tine, R. Hcxly, D.

As in all our projects, the building of a firm foundation is a laborious and tedious task that none relish but all must shoulder, and here it is that we find ourselves trying to fashion a fitting and enduring club to uphold the re- spected reputation of the College. The main activity presented during the year was the Christmas Dance held in Middletown on December 20, 1955.

Wake up! The Valley Association of Fairfield Univer- sity is one of the oldest area clubs in existence at the University. It was founded in 1948 and although still relatively small in membership is has grown to one of the most respected and active Area Associations on Campus. The purpose of the Association is to serve the Connecticut Valley Area Students' interests in so far as they are compatible with those of the Administration and Student Council, and above all, to help any new student from the Valley area with his transition to college life. Besides other activities that may be spon- sored by the Association as the conditions of each year warrant, there are three activities that are considered traditional. The first, and most important, is the spon- soring of a concert featuring the University Glee Club which yields funds to provide scholar- ships to deserving students who wish to attend the University. The Association has held seven annual concerts and has awarded at least one scholarship each of those seven years to worthy Valley residents. Second, is the sponsoring of a social stag each year, to welcome all those new students from the Valley. Third, a dinner dance is sponsored at the end of each year to mark another step forward for all the Club's members. Although not yet a tradition, the Club has been happy to give financial support to the Senior Informal Dance of senior Week for the past two years. The Met Club, as the New York Met- Row 1, l-r: J.

The pri- mary objective of this club is to provide one scholarship each year to a deserving aspirant to Fairfield University from the Metropolitan Area. The secondary objectives of the club are to satisfy the social desires of the members, and to obtain the necessary funds for the annual scholarship. Over the last four years the Met Club has increased its membership from six- teen to the present number of approxi- mately eighty. The club has sponsored informal dances, socials and picnics, which were all held in the Metropolitan Area of New York City. Richards, R. Reynolds, J. Toal, P. Shivell, J. Seery L. Crane, J. Crane, J.

Look at that little bug down there. i X During the past year students from the New Jersey area, aided by the increased membership, formed what was to be the youngest Area Club of the University for the pur- pose of spreading the name and fame of Fairfield in said area. Much of the credit for its establish- ment should go to the Sophomores who have finally actualized a long- existent dream. The successful affairs held dur- ing the past year are evidence of the wonderful spirit of this group. Though presently small, the future will see it rank as one of the strongest limbs of the Fairfield stu- dent body. 1: .2307 Row 1, I-r: F. Cahill, J. Scanlon, D. Zucco, R. Callahan, J. Murphy, W.

We played continuously at a definite height disadvant- age, while meeting the top College cage teams in the East. Throughout the season the team turned in many brilliant performances and gave many of the name basketball teams quite a scare before fal- tering in the closing minutes. Fairfield's first appearance in an organized league came about this year as we entered the Tri-State Basketball League. Coach Jim Hanrahairs cagers were unable, however, to score a victory in five con- ference tilts. Although this was our second losing season in a row, the Fairfield basketball future is brighter than ever. Heading the list of returnees for next year will be this season's high-scorer, Frank McGowan, Fran "Hot-Rod" Hanley, and Mike Mullen, in addi- tion to Ed Diskowski, who averaged over 20 points per contest on the great stag team of '55, The addi- tion to the squad of the members of this year's out- standing Freshman team should place Fairfield in big time basketball. We started the season off in an auspicious fashion by solidly trouncing an outclassed Alumni squad by a score of 70-48. Captain Pedro Tagatac led the Hot Rod" hits for two! offense with 22 points, while Joe Kehoe, who was the first player in the school's history to score 1000 points, led the "old timers" with 10. New Britain Teachers' College was overwhelmed by a 77-70 score in a hard fought contest which fea- I McGowan aimsg Mullen and Pavluvcik following. Mullen's fouled. Grab that ball, Pedlo' 104 tured McGowan with 22 points and Tagatac with 18. Mike Mullen totalled 16 with both drives and sets. With two straight victories under their belt, the Stags traveled to New Jersey to meet Fairleigh- Dickinson in the first Tri-State Conference game. The Jerseyites gave us our first loss of the year, 72-62, although McGowan was again the offensive star of the game with 23 points. From here the Stags went to Brooklyn to meet the much heralded St. Francis quintet, who handed us a 71-53 defeat. Sophomore Ken O'Brien put on a fine display of set shooting for the Stags and ended up with scoring honors, 17 points. Seton Hall of Paterson was next to test the "Han- rahan Cagers," who proved to be too strong and scored a 64-53 victory. McGowan led all scoring with 20 points followed by Tagatac with 19. The biggest upset of the year came when Fairfield beat the New York Athletic Club 59-56. This marked the first time we had beaten the N. Y. Club in eight tries. Once again it was McGowan and Tagatac with scoring honors, 20 and 16 respectively. As a result of a pre-game rally and bonfire held on campus, spirit was very high for the big Boston College game. The Eagles put on a tremendous shoot- ing performance to beat Fairfield 75-54. This gave You're breaking his arm, Bob Bring 'er in, Art! What's this, a minuet? Boston a 2-1 edge in the rivalry. This initiated a subsequent nine game losing streak at the hands of St. Peter's, who later received an N. I. T. bid, Bridgeport, Iona, Yeshiva, St. Michael's, Hunter, Rider, and Assumption. The team broke the slump with flying colors by upsetting American International College 90-88. McGowan hit the season high in this game with 30 points. At the new Bridgeport University gym, with the score 59-58 Bridgeport, the closing minutes saw Mike Mullen drive in for a shot, which circled the rim and popped out. This gave the Knights posses- sion of the Bridgeport Newman Club Trophy for the first time since its inauguration four years ago. McGowan kept hitting the scoring honors in games with Brooklyn College and Providence Col- lege, but to no avail as we dropped both of these in last quarter pushes. However, New Britain again fell to the Stags, this time by a 66-61 score. The last game for Captain Tagatac, Art Pavluv- cik, Dan Miko and Wes Gregory saw St. Anselm's College garner 92 points while Fairfield could gather only 75. Much credit is due to Coach Jim Hanrahan and his assistant, Emil Garofalo, for the spirited play and determination displayed by the team even in its most outclassed games. In summation, we quote Coach Joe Mullaney of victorious Providence Col- lege who said, "This is by far the greatest losing basketball club I have ever seen." 105 K1 I"f' Mullen scores unhindered.

N 1 Assistant Coach Emil Garofalo Praising quotes could be found in the newspapers of New York and New Jersey after the Fairfield Freshmen had played in these areas. This year's team, coached by Emil Garofalo, compiled a 13-2 record, winning the first thirteen games and dropping the last two, against the roughest competition ever encoun- tered by a Fairfield Frosh team. The team opened the season by scoring a 75-57 vic- tory over The Raybestos Brake Liners, Industrial Lea- gue Champs, with Harry Hyra showing the way with 21 points. In the next game the team scored 75 again, to the New Britain J. V. quintet's total of 59. Joel Cherrytree led the offense with 24 points. St. Thomas' Seminary was subdued, 85-75, as Hyra scored 20 points. As Tom Czarnota led the attack with 16, the team rolled up itse fourth straight win of the season de- feating The Chesterfield Cigarette Club of New York, 108 78-58. Pat Kelly dropped in 24 points against The Sikorsky Flyers to enable the team to pick up a fifth win, 95-54. The "Garofalomen" now readied themselves for a real test against an unbeaten St. Peter's Freshman team at Jersey City. At half-time all five starters were in the double figures. The final score gave Kelly 21, Cherrytree 20, and Hyra 193 Fairfield 103, St. Peter's 81. In the first fright of the year, the University of Bridgeport Freshman led the game in the closing sec- onds, when Joe Flanagan was fouled on a drive. Joe sank one free throw ending the game 80-79, Fairfield. Hyra scored 23 points. A supposedly strong Iona Freshman team was outclassed in a 94-75 game, again featuring Hyra, this time with 20 points. The easiest win of the season came over the Danbury Teachers Frosh when Fairfield scored 98 to the opposition's 34. The "Y" Sportsmen of Bridgeport were defeated by a 77-56 score with Flanagan the offensive star, total- ling 19 points. In scoring their eleventh straight vic- tory the "Little Stags" easily defeated the Stratford Red Men of the Connecticut Central Basketball Lea- gue by the score of 85-64. Hyra had 22 followed close- ly by Kelly and Cherrytree who each had 21. The team then went to U. B. to meet the strong Bridgeport Freshman again.

As they tried to get by number 13 they ran into a fired up Cheshire Academy squad. which, supported by the 38 point shooting of Jay Beal, scored an 105-85 upset victory over Fairfield.

Varsity Baseball 1956 Although the 1956 Baseball team could produce only a 3 and 8 record, they did leave the Stag followers with a bright outlook for the future. Not one of the start- ing nine was lost by graduation. Opening the season as a very inexperienced squad, they showed noticeable improvement with each outing-an optimistic indica- tion of the future. The Stags began by dropping a 5-2 decision to Rider College. They held a 2-1 lead going into the seventh inning, but the combination of two hits and two very costly errors paved the way for a Rider victory. In the next outing the team bounced back, behind Ed Cerulli's three hitter, to shut out Fairleigh-Dickin- son by a 3-0 score. Ron Grosso's two run homer was the big blow for the Stags in the contest. After this impressive win, Fairfield then dropped the next five games. The New Britain Teachers College nine started them on their losing ways by handing the squad a 13-6 defeat. Buddy Waters hit a three run homer in vain. The Club then lost a heart-breaker to the New Haven Teachers by a score of 7-6 in a game which saw little Ron Grosso hit his second homer of the season. They went on to drop an 11-9 slugfest to Hillyer College for their third straight defeat. Against traditional rivals, the University of Bridge- port, they were on the short end of a hotly disputed 2-1 decision. The dispute, which came about over a controversial ground rule, broke up a 1-1 tie to give the Purple Knights the victory. The Stags then lost the second game to Hillyer College by a 7-4 mark. Their five game losing streak was ended when at their hands St. Peter's College of Jersey City suffered a 9-6 defeat. Although they trailed throughout the con- test, in the sixth inning Wes Gregory, in his first official at bat of the season, clouted a two run homer which provided the victory margin. The Stags' next win was at the expense of Quinni- piac College. It was a 6-1 conquest behind the brilliant pitching of Bill Burns. Catcher Pedro Tagatac was the offensive star in the game with four straight sin- gles. However, in their next game they dropped an 8-3 decision to the New Britain Teachers College nine for the second loss of the season to the educators. Fairfield then traveled to Worcester, Mass. to close out the season against the strong Holy Cross College squad. The Crusaders, who were rated as the top col- legiate baseball team in New England, defeated the Stags 12-1 in the first baseball meeting between the two Jesuit schools. Final statistics showed Ed Cerulli as the team's leading pitcher with a pair of victories. Art Pavluvcik and Pedro Tagatac each hit above the coveted .300 mark for the second consecutive year. In closing we would like to offer a humble thanks to Coach Joe Brosley, who resigned at the end of the season to become head football and baseball coach at Fairfield Prep. All those who played under Coach Bros- ley in his seven years as varsity baseball coach at Fair- field, will always remember him for his wonderful en- couragement and patience. - Q mf 7'5" K -sr , ,, Too bad' Where IS everyone g'omg" o0' o l Stee-eerike! !

Coach Tamashumas and his cindermen will be facing another grueling schedule, perhaps even more so than in past years. Last season, although the team to all out- ward appearances did not live up to its fol- lowers' expectations, it was nevertheless one of which we can speak with pride. The seem- ingly unimpressive record of one win and four losses fails to manifest the true ability and spirit of the team. Taking into account the relative smallness of Fairfield in propor- tion to the over-all strength of her opponents, a closer examination of the individual efforts will more clearly indicate the fine work ac- complished by Tamashumas' charges. The team proved their ability against the always powerful Long Island Aggies as they matched them point for point until the su- perior depth of the visitors enabled them to overcome Fairfield's efforts. The results of the Upsala and New Haven matches told a similar story. The Fairfield men were forced because of a lack of depth to compete in two and sometimes three events in the same match. Their ability was evidenced more clearly, however, in a strong and impressive victory over Westchester, a team of equal strength. The return of veterans Murphy, Colavita, Catalani, Zysk, and many promising Sopho- mores, would seem to predict a successful season for Fairfield this Spring.

'-'Ai HU' 5 CROSS The Fairfield Harriers, despite a fine dis- play of "fight" and of team spirit, did ex- perience a rather dismal season. Many rea- sons have been advanced for the loss-laden record, but the most significant is that the team was comprised for the most part of in- experienced Sophomores. The addition of a season's experience and of the concomitant practice to the previously indicated spirit will be of obvious value to next season's team. The prospects for the future indeed seem bright. In the Freshman ranks Fairfield's star loomed bright as the "little Stags" enjoyed one of the most successful seasons in the his- tory of the school. Climaxing a 4-0 season, the young harriers led by Connor and Sergi gave Fairfield an unexpected surprise as the team was chosen to compete in an important post-season multi-team meet. Rising to the CA 3-x 7x J' urn' 'A-C 47' an Q4, J pf 'Q I occasion, the Stags defeated nineteen teams to bring home the championship trophy of the Freshman Collegiate Cross-Country Track Conference at Van Courtland Park, New York.

Charles Farrington, S.J., had its most active year in the history of the University with approximately one half of the stu- dent body participating in its touch football, basketball, softball, and bowl- ing phases. Each individual sport had its own committee with the chairman appointed by Father Farrington. In general, each committee performed the necessary duties of running its respective sport, scheduling games, appointing referees, Edward G. Robinson at quarterback. tabulating results, etc. This is football?? . A 'MQ' 4 in Ax , . QQZTQQ.-n w, 445' J The Mad Hatters. The touch football league gave the intramural program a driving start with chairman Tony Colavita and Co- chairmen Bud Waters and Dick Keat- ing scheduling forty-two games for seven teams. After two months of play, the New York Metropolitan Club team, led by Bud Waters, emerged as league champions. The champs were awarded trophies at the Junior Class Sports Night.

Chairman Jim Scanlon of the basket- ball league kept the players very active, fitting forty-eight games in three months in outdoor winter Weather. The games were played on the Xavier courts, thus being limited to days with agree- able Weather. In the final tabulations, Tad Dowd and the "Hoopsters', were declared the league champs. On Tuesday afternoons during the Winter months, the Intramural scene shifted from the University campus to the Fairfield Bowling Academy for the bowling league. The league was made up of forty members constituting twen- ty teams. John Catalani and Vin Scully were league co-chairmen. The highest single honor was taken by Nick DePaola and the team winners were Dan Kre- nisky and Tony Bosco. All the winners received trophies donated by Father Farrington. In the coming Spring, Loyola field will become the scene of intra-mural softball. Last season Tony Colavita, assisted by John Catalani, scheduled games for eleven teams on every day but Friday. The league kept active until the last class day in May when the New York Metropolitan Club was announced as league champs by a slight edge in percentage points. This year the Met Club team, man- aged by Lou Cotignola, will probably have to fight off a powerful New Jersey Club team if it is to remain league champs. 4 I gl - ll 55' ll gl gh ll 1":":l".

The many club presidents and Intercollegiate Affairs Delegates amongst us gave their energy and experience wholeheartedly. Interesting dis- plays of club activities were set up and ex- planation of such groups as the N.F. and the C.I.S.L. began all over again. Elaborate and explicit directions to the Campus Branch of the Black Rock Turnpike Bank were oHered freely. Athletic newcomers tramped the cam- pus more than once looking for the gymna- sium. As the leaves began to fall and worn spots on the grass turned deep dark brown, con- cepts of double effect and intrinsic finality were replaced by phantasms of Harvest Hop. The Seniors on the committee chopped corn stalks and heated up the corn still out back, while others draped crape paper over a tre- mendous pumpkin chandelier.

The Industrial Relations and Mariology Commis- sions of the N.F.C.C.S. visited Berchman's Hall in November. Father Rooney, S.J., recently returned from St. Louis where he held a position in the Queens Work, conducted a very profitable workshop on the study of Mary. Mr. John Driscoll, Secretary of the Connecticut C.I.O. and Mr. Terrence O'Grady, Industrial Relations Commission Chairman, staged a debate on the stimu- lating topic: Are Unions Getting Too Big? We never could work out an ultimatum whereby students could influence a faculty strike. Annual Christmas Dances of the campus clubs were held just before the holidays. Once the holi- days had commenced the class still found them- selves together at area club socials and parties. Early in January, invitations were sent out to neighboring girls' colleges by the student council, announcing the Intercollegiate Dance. Under the direction of the experienced and able chairman, the dance facilities were able to accommodate ap- proximately 250 couples. Colleges from Hartford, Tarrytown, New Haven, New Rochelle, White Plains and elsewhere were represented. Many of the men were given the added pleasure of driving the girls to and from their respective colleges. Orientation, K. of C., Helpweek, Christmas, In- tercollegiate Dances-these are but a few of the activities which We undertook in 1955 that stand out in our minds. There were many other club seminars, class dances, N.F.

' U f' Laddin's Terrace was chosen as the site for the Formal Dance which traditionally cli- maxed Junior Week, the famous Junior Promenade. The Class of '57 having served on so many dance committees, the Prom Committee could not be anything but top notch. This is evidenced by its excellent chairman, Paul Check, and by its director of publicity, Ken Catandella. Both accomplish- ed what they set out to do. The Prom was unmatched. The strains of Frank Daly's music greeted us as we entered. The bids were presented by several nattily-dressed ushers, who in actu- ality were pre-med students boning up for the next day's Medical School Aptitude Test. Well, that's what they said they were doing. Conformity and nonconformity mingled as white dinner jackets "blended" with the tra- ditional dark tux. What could be lovelier than a Spring evening,-even more so for it was a May evening,-smooth, scintilating music, a delicate aroma of perfume, the breeze-stir- ring whirl of goWns,- the gentle laughter of the distaif set, the almost inaudible humming of the male serenaders, and the mosaic ap- pearance of colors gliding across the dance floor in an expression of gayety unsurpassed. Suddenly there was a blinding flash of light. Was it lightning? No, it was Joe Zack with his movie camera, recording for pos- terity the joy personified at Laddin's. Then the nostalgic strains of "Goodnight Sweetheart" flowed across the room. It was over. Some went home for the rest of the Weekend. Others remained for the Baseball Game the next day and the reception of Can- didates into the Sodality on Sunday. What- ever the Juniors of 1956 did, they all thought the same thing. Junior Year had reached its close. Another milestone had been passed. Perhaps the greatest single year in the his- tory of the Class of 1957 had been culminated by one of the most enjoyable occasions, the Junior Prom, 1956.

This dance would be the best-everything about it dictated eminence. The Carnival weekend began on Friday evening, February 9, at approximately 7:30 P.M. Tony Colavita and his chosen commit- teemen contracted for a Pre-Formal Cocktail Party at the Turf Club in Southport. Ar- rangements completed, invitations to the party went on sale on the same day as the Formal bids. Due to a limited capacity at the Turf Club, many enthusiasts had to be disappointed. Eighty-five bids were sold, eighty-five cou- ples welcomed the week-end festivities amongst gaiety and inspiration a la Turf Club. Southport! The party, scheduled from 7:30 to about 9:30, was to be short and sweet. Consequently, the committee felt that the decorations should be simple. They did not want to detract, even in the least way, from the Longshore. At 9:30, the party moved to the Longshore Country Club, in Westport. Here, the caravan was met by ushers who politely directed us to the Dance. They park- ed our cars also, but not so politely. QI no- ticed later that a V-8 can get out of trap 13 very easily-in reverse.J Having received the bids and had their coats checked, the girls were presented with a very novel favor, a surprise even to the males! Perhaps next year they will order metal mugs ? There was the dance floor-six couples deep. The sloped roof, reflecting multi-col- ored light, put some of us off balance momen- tarily. Glen Miller's immortal "String of Pearls" guided us back to equilibrium as we glided along elbows for room on the jam- packed dance floor. The absent ice-carvings went unnoticed, being compensated for by the unusual deco- ration display. The Carnival committee is to be especially praised for their handling of this delicate and explosive problem. Had there been the slightest hint of ice forms, much would have come to the fore. Mid-way through the evening, lonesome Ed Morey captured the microphone from Pat Dorin and related his characteristic quips on life in general. Twenty minutes or so of this and the audience was pressing forward. Let's get the world in on this talent. The finalists in the Queen Contest were intro- duced and each one was interviewed separ- ately by Mr. Morey. Where does he get all his facts? Chosen to reign was Miss Mary Catherine McGrath of Waterbury. Mary's court consisted of Miss Sandra Ann Terrio, Glen Falls. N. Y., Miss Gerry Shannon, Brooklyn, N. Y.g Miss Patricia Gaffney, Floral Park, N. Y., and Miss Janice Hem- mingway of Waterbury. Cameras flashed madly as the Queen danced, crowned with rhinestones and draped in a cardinal red, ermine trimmed cloak. About this time, Pat Do1'in and his band went into ecstacy with "the Saints." Every member of the band did his own solo, prompt- ed by the swaying and the clapping of the "cats" on the floor. The VETS CL B PARTY Which twin has the Toni? These Carnivals pass so quickly! Some were just getting the rhythm of the music and beginning to go all out on the floor- Mr. Fitzpatrick got the urge earlier-when the band drifted into the last combination. Those who were wise headed for the cloak room immediately, I, not being especially intuitive, was determined to dance to the last. My date and I, along with a few other couples, waited,-never again! There must have been two-hundred and eighty-five fel- lows in that 10' by 12' coat room, all looking for their date's coat. Now to see what was left of the car. Cou- ples had gathered on the steps of the Long- shore anxiously awaiting their limosine when catastrophe struck. Two car jockeys were in a dispute about the sportsmanship of turf replacing when the Green's Warden found the remnants of No. 18 on the 10th tee. As the Warden dialed for the riot squad, I decided to retrieve the car myself. Someone had spread the vicious rumor that the foot- path over the creek on No. 3 had been re- paired. Wet but still smiling, I arrived at the entrance where the caravan to the Fairfield Inn was outfitting. No pictures, please! f ATUEDAY: THE JAZZ C0 CERT Brown University had been contacted early in the mg 5.x , year in an effort to contract the "Brunotes" for the i Saturday afternoon Jazz Concert. As soon as the last arrangements had been completed and the notice placed on the bulletin board, everyone made definite plans to be in Berchman's Hall on February 9th, As the Dixieland began to penetrate and echo in all corners, Jim Masterson and Ralph Marcarelli ex- pressed their views on music in a combined Charles- ton-Cossack exhibition. We all agreed that the "Brunotes" rendition of "the Saints" was the greatest. They not only played it, they marched it! Each member of the band picked up his instrument and paraded through the song in original Southland style. For many, this was the iirst time they had heard a "Play 'The Saints." Dixieland band play Chinese Jazzg the two English profs of the band collaborated to give us their idea of Peking Dixie. When the musicians had blown themselves out and VVhitey had closed the bar. we called it a day-the girls had to get ready for the Informal Dance which would follow on the same night. Swing it 'Benny'! .-G .f 1r'- All chiefsg no braves. Music appreciation. THE I EORMAL DA CE Everyone was back at Berchmans that evening to slow up the pace after the rather hectic afternoon. The tunes of Ed Graf and his band set up a soft, slow beat which set in exactly with the mood of the decora- tions. Simply draped crape paper and dim lights, multi- colored of course, which casted their effect on the cou- ples with almost majestic simplicity combined to make this informal one to be noted by future Carnival com- mittees. Featured at the intermission were the Six Sounds and very modern rendition of classic Jazz. The sounds of Brubeck and Kenton were played off the cuff by the band. The audience accepted this novel entertainmnt with enthusiasm, which they evidenced not only by clapping but by joining in and dancing. The dance was over early so everyone could have the opportunity to get to the Communion breakfast scheduled for 10:00 in Loyola Hall. George, who's that guy sleeping next to you? Somebody's blocking the view. x i U DAY: THE C0lVllVlU I0 BRE KTA T fi T 1 4 g H Speaker, Fr. McCall, Chairman, John Cagnassolag Student Activities Modera- tor, Fr. Rooney. Desi Sullivan, Chairman of the breakfast, presented Father McCall to those who had received earlier in Loyola Chapel. Father showed the Catholicity of-the Carnival and further stressed the importance of the Com- munion breakfast in the Catholic College so- cial weekend. What could be more fitting to close the weekend and to solidify our friend- ships than union with God? THE GLEE CLUB CONCERT For those who stayed for the entire week- end there was more to come. The University Glee Club presented a memorable concert on Sunday afternoon. Realizing the appeal of the Club and the agenda for the afternoon, many of the men invited their families along with their dates. As the program moved along, soloists Ron- nie Skurat and Bill Doyle were introduced and each did a wonderful job. The Benson- ians, straw hats, red blazers and all, did a few choice selections of close harmony which stimulated encore after encore. When the Alma Mater was sung, every Senior in the audience realized, too sharply, that the Carnival was over. It had come, it was gone-there was no "next year." The Andrews Sisters.

Let a college be such that it attempts in all branches of secular learning to demonstrate that secular learning, important as it is to man's material advancement, is not an end in itself but an in- strument to enable man to achieve his ultimate goal-union with God. Let that college be such that it immerses the student in the deep well of philosophical thought that he may see with the clarity of human reasoning the bonds which tie him and the objects with which he is surrounded both to each other and to God. Let that college be such that it gives the student a good back- ground in the apologetics and theology of his church for both his own sake and for the sake of those to whom he may be a Christ- bearer in todays Christless society. Let that college be such that it imbues the student, through the study of history, with the tools necessary to watch with insight the inception and decay, the flow and stagnation of the institutions man has erected in his halting progress through the centuries. Let that college be such that it introduces the student to the most abstract of all sciences, mathematics, that he may see for himself the heights to which the human mind can soar, unaided, unimpeded by the mass of reality. Let that college be such that it throws open to the student the door to the constantly expanding natural sciences which probe the mechanical mysteries of man and his world that he may, with- out losing himself in the intense specialization, view the order and harmony of God's creation. Let that college be such that it enables the student to draw back from his own milieu and enter into the thought patterns of an- other culture with its own peculiar development and characteristics by the proficient use of a foreign language. Let that college be such that it imparts to the student that in- culcation of principle necessary to dip into the newer and less settled sciences which seek to illuminate the darkness which sur- rounds man considered as a social entity. Let that college be called by its name . . . FAIRFIELD.
