Through the Lens . . .
We have drawn the realities of the present school year into
a state of rest, that all who pause may view them again.
It has been our aim to focus attention upon all events of
interest-scholastic, athletic, and social. If We have suc-
ceeded in capturing and reproducing the memory of our
Alma Mater, you should have no difficulty in sensing the
joys, strugles, and triumphs which We experience every day
at Fenwick High School.
We offer a complement to the pictured story of Fenwick
activities. Just as musicians reveal their souls with words
and music, so We take pen and lens, join Words to pictures,
in order to give you the complete story of endeavor and
achievement of the students at Fenwick. The telling of our
story has given us valuable trainingg we hope you will find
it of interest.

REV. W. A. FINCEL, O. P., M. A.
During his three years as Principal, Father Fincel,
has ever shown himself to be the students' friend. Kindness
with justice, learning with zeal, initiative with courage
have always been looked upon as the outstanding qualities
of an educational leader. Service to the community demands
that judgment and action which most benefit the greatest
number of people for the longest time.
Rev B. B. Myers, O. P., S. T. Lr.
Director of Stilclies, Vocations
The detail of duty connected with the posi-
tion of Director of Studies is often very
exacting, yet Father Myers, with a personal
interest in each boy, directs, outlines, and
approves the course of study to loe pursued
by every student.
Rev. P. J. Conaty, O.P., BA.
Director of Discipline,
Athletic Director, English
Endowed With a passion for discipline and
attendance, Father Conaty keeps in close
contact with every perverse boy in school.
His deep interest in all the athletic activities
of the school has merited the loyalty and
devotion the boys so generously show him.

German, Latin, and Religion
REV. R. B. CONNOLLY, O.P., M.A. REV. J. S. KENNEDY, O.P., MA
General Science and Religion Latin
must ever hold the first
place in Catholic education since the Whole work
of education is intimately and necessarily con-
nected vvith the pursuit of the last end of man.
At Fenwick the student lives and breathes in an
atmosphere thoroughly Catholic. Religious teach-
ers instruct him, zealous priests minister to his
spiritual needs, and a devoted Catholic lay faculty
supervises his play and leisure moments.

E H has been accorded the high
position it deserves among the required courses
of study. It is only by a thorough knowledge and
appreciation of the mother tongue that one is
able to enjoy full sucecss in life. Reading inabil-
ity is the cause of many failures. Therefore,
besides the customary classes in grammar and in
American and English literature, remedial read-
ing classes have been organized that reading
difficulties may be diagnosed and overcome.

THE S NICR CLASS
Together . .
Entering high school as freshmen in
September 1936 with Father Van Rooy as
moderator, we the class of 1940 quickly
demonstrated that in spite oi' our slight
stature we were ready to do our bit in
perpetuating the school spirit. We turned
out in large numbers for lightweight foot-
ball and basketball, and recall with pride
how Miller, Carroll, and Mulligan proved
their ability in the intramural swimming
meet, and how McGregor won the ping-
pong championship never to lose it.
In the fall of 1937 we returned to class
larger in stature but smaller in number.
Already we were making ourselves known
in athletic uniforms. Elder, Curran, Pro-
vost, Campagna, Flyke, Van Zeveren,
Fisher, and Moore were familiar figures
on the gridiron, Giroux, Elder, and Lewis
were frequently called upon in basketball.
The swimming team welcomed to its ranks
Seery, Brown, McCarthy, Crews, Mooney,
Carroll, and Duffy, the Boxing Tourna-
ment gave occasion for awards to Curran,
Larkin, and Dunlap. During this year
under our new Moderator Father Kava-
naugh the following officers were elected:
W. Riley, presidentg C. Van Zeveren, vice-
president, J. Giroux, secretaryg R. Cur-
ran, treasurer. The class also inaugurated
a set of "Freshmen Resolutions" to impose
on the Freshmen as part of an initiation
Paul Gaskill, Vice-President, Roger Denne, President,
Rev. M. A. Kavanaugh, O.P., Moderator, Bernard Frett, Treasurer,
George Frederick, Secretary.
Early in September 1938, W. Riley was
re-elected president, P. Gaskill. G. Frede-
rick, and C. Van Zeveren were chosen
vice-president, secretary, and treasurer
respectively. R. Denne, B. Frett, and
P. Springer led the class on the Honor
Roll just as G. Elder, R. Curran, G. Frede-
rick, E. Dunigan, M. Zanoni, C. Rogers,
F. Korda, D. Carraher, and Denne
found openings in the football line. On
the basketball floor G. Elder, D Carraher,
and J. Lewis won major awards. Under
the chairmanship of E. Dunigan the class
gave the first Roller Derby, and we cli-
maxed our junior year with a Prom at the
Medinah Ball Room.
This our senior year has been one of
varied activities. We began by electing
R. Denne, president, P. Gaskill, vice-pres-
identg G. Frederick, secretary, B. Frett,
treasurer. Other members of the class
who held positions of note were: J. Walsh
and F. Schell first and second semester
presidents respectively of the Confrater-
nity, G. Nicklas, president of the Band,
R. Lics, editor of the Wick, B. Frett,
editor of Blackfriarsg J. Kern, who was
chosen as Fenwick's representative to be
treasurer of Ciscag B. Frett, and P.
Springer who vied for top place on the
Honor Roll. The school also included
B. Frett, F. Kelleher, J. McDonald, and
F. Schell on her list of National Honor
In the field of athletics there is a for-
midable list to take into account. The
football squad led to the brink of cham-
pionship by G. Elder boasts of the follow-
ing seniors: M. Zanoni, J. Campagna,
G. Frederick, R. Curran, and E. Dunigang
J. Giroux, captain of the basketball team
and his able helpers G. Frederick, F.
McNichols, G. Elder, D. Carraher, and
J. Lewis, Qwe should add F. Doonan, cap-
tain of juniorsl, after a brilliant start-
winning the St. George Tournament-fell
just short of finishing with the sectional
trophy. Captain J. Elwood and his team
mates F. Seery, M. Mooney, J. Duffy, and
H. McCarthy, splashed their way to an-
other Championship in swimming.
When we reflect on the social events of
the year we recall with pleasure the Foot-
ball Dance at the Edgewater Beach Hotel
arranged by F. McNichols, general chair-
man, the Football Banquet at the Morri-
son Hotel given by the Fathers' Club:
the Senior Banquet given by the Mothers'
Club at the Lake Shore Athletic Club, the
Senior Prom planned at the Medinah
Country Club by E. Dunigan, general
chairman, and the senior officers as aids.
Another memorable event of this vear was
the senior spring picnic.

JU ICR LASS of 1941
The school year of 1939-40 has proved to be very successful for the
Junior Class. Under the supervision of Father Van Rooy, the Juniors
have made themselves conspicuous on the Honor Roll, in athletics, in the
band, in public speaking, Cisca, and in Confraternity activitie3. At the
class election in September J. O'Keefe was elected president, N. Maloney,
vice-presidentg R. Buckingham, treasurer, G. Mullen, secretary.
Playing an important part in athletics, N. Maloney, football captain-
elect, R. Allen, and J. Kennelly have been regular starters on the Friar
team. On the basketball floor, J. Payette, captain of next year's team,
and T. Harvey and W. Doherty on the juniors have played throiighout the
season. In swimming R. Buckingham, J. Burke, W. Cullerton, W. O'Leary,
R. Thomas, W. Brown, and R. Collins helped the Friar team rctain the
The Juniors have also proved to be leaders in fields other than ath-
letics. J. Kelly, G. Munger, and J. Twomey were regular speakers on the
debating team, appearing in almost all league debates. G. Munger won
the school championship in the St. Thomas Symposium, while two others
J. Twomey and R. Dooley merited vice-president and secretary of the
The scholastic achievements of the class are also outstanding. G. Kel-
leher, W. McGah, and J. Twomey have consistently made the Honor Roll.
The social events have always been well supported by the class, and its
own leadership in this line was exemplified in the success of the Amateur
Night Ca sectional Junior projectj, and the Junior Prom held in the
Grand Ballroom of the Knickerbocker Hotel on Easter Monday.
The members of the class of '41 in looking back over the past year
may well be satisfied with their achievements, but we are sure they will
not rest on their laurels. With their spirit and leadership it should be
easy for them to gain further heights and uphold Fenwick's traditions.

JU IOR CLASS of 1941
ori-iouonn CLASS of 1942
The Class of 1942 has just completed its second year at Fenwick and
is now ready to take an important part in the leadership of school affairs.
Throughout this year the members have been preparing themselves for
the weighty burdens soon to be placed upon them. Indeed many of the
class have already merited enviable places in the various activities.
In the field of sports many luminaries have risen on the horizon.
At the end of the football season two Sophomores, W. Brady and J. Kil-
gallon, emerged with major lettersg many others showed great promise
for positions with the future Fighting Friars. By their skill on the basket-
ball floor D. Dillon, A. Provenzano, and W. Quinlan gained good positions
with the junior cagers. But to find the Sophomores at their best one must
visit the pool. Besides winning the intramural swimming championship,
the class is the mainstay of the junior swimming team. The second and
third highest scorers on the team were W. Buckingham and R. Jarkag
other outstanding Sophomores on the junior team were: P. Barrett,
J. Horvilis, T. Dempsey, R. Kelleher, J. Collins, J. O'Connor, and W.
Wanamaker the manager. W. Hosty won the intramural bowling cham-
pionship, W. Kirby the free-throw contest, and one need only to look at

the list of participants of the other athletic teams to see that a great
number of Sophomores have been active on all of them.
At first sight of all the sport activities of the class one might think
that the members did not have time for the more serious side of school
life. Such was not the case. A goodly number of the class found places
on the honorable mention list and W. Buckingham and M. Kerwin stepped
forward to take their positions on the semester Honor Roll. J. Lightner
exemplified his leadership by leading the discussion at Cisca. In debating
and public speaking the Sophomores were represented by M. Healy,
L. Conlon, and E. Kerr. The Wick has found many able and anxious
members for its cub staff, and the Band boasts of fifteen boys from the
At present the Sophomore Class has the largest enrollment of any
class in school, and it is easy to see that the members are grateful for all
that has been done for them. They are almost impatient for the time
when they will take their place among the upper classmen to exercise

FREsHMAN otriss Qf 1943 Q 1
On the evening of September 5, 1939 there were 143 Freshmen listed
as members of the class of 1943. Although their number was somewhat
smaller than that of the preceding year, their spirit has proved stronger
if one can judge them by their many activities. True to the tradition of
the school they underwent the ordeal of initiation with a live and cheerful
spirit, even, at times, welcomed the opportunity to show their ability to
sing the school songs. Thus the freshmen quickly grew into active school
Football was the first sport to captivate their interest and forty-one
ended the season wearing numerals. The most active members of the
squad were: J. Nusko, L. Lobeck, E. Triner, J. Spatafora, G. Cormack,
B. Holeck, A. County, T. Cusack, F. McDonald, H. Worthington, T. Culler-
ton, and J. Higgins. One Freshman, R. Finn, did even better when it
came time for basketball and played substitute on the heavyweight team,
T. Tobin, R. Petsinger, F. McDonald, T. Varlas, and R. Gross played
lightweight basketball. W. Hatch, F. LeBrun, and R. Hoelzer found open
lanes with the junior swimmers. F. LeBrun took first place in the 25-yd
breast stroke intramural contest. The Freshmen also showed their skill
in the boxing ring where M. McNellis, W. Keegan, and F. McGovern stood
up to receive their crowns.
The physical sports, however, did not exhaust the Freshmen spirit.
Their class put on the only dramatic presentation of the season. The play

FRESHMAN CLASS of 1943
"Penrod" was given at Autin Town Hall with R. Mullen, W. Marquart,
R. Farrell, and T. Brady taking the principal roles. The play was directed
by Father Madrick. With the debating group R. Goedert, G. McCarthy,
R. Palombi, E. Dunne, and R. Farrel showed signs of much ability.
The Wick, too, found the Freshmen ready helpers, and the band was
increased by fourteen members three of whom, W. Regan, H. Raphael, and
C. Marsalli, received honors at the Archdiocesan contest.
When it came to showing competitive school spirit Freshmen were
hard to beat. They Won the free day offered in the Blackfriars subscrip-
tion contest. C. Curran exemplified his ability to entertain and Won
a prize on Amateur Night. And last, but not least, they produced one of
the best issues of the Freshmen papers ever put out. Scholastically the
Freshmen rank with the best. R. Goedert has been consistently on the
Honor Roll all year, R. Palombi and R. McGah found it Worth their While
to join his company.
Late in the year the Moderator Rev. E. M. McGowan, O.P. held the
class elections at which R. Foley was chosen president, F. McDonald,
vice-presidentg J. Reedy, treasurerg R. Finn secretary.

At the final practice before the Austin
game, Coach Lawless again was able to
see that Fenwick had a good team. Since
August 21st the boys had been studying
tactics in the boiling sun and doing con-
tact work, trying hard to overcome the
disadvantages of an inexperienced squad.
Nevertheless Captain Elder, only letter
man returning, and the team entered the
Austin conflict with high spirits.
FENWICK 6 AUSTIN 21
In the game played on September 15th,
under the flood-lights of Mills Stadium,
the Friars entered the game as the under-
dogs. This was chiefly due to Austin's
fifteen pound per man advantage and
several returning stars. During the first
half, play see-sawed back and forth with
Fenwick coming out the moral victor
because of scoring the first touchdown
and stemming the powerful Austin offen-
sive. The score at the end of the first
half was tied six all.
In the third quarter an Austin quick
kick to the Fenwick two yard line put the
Friars on the spot. Captain George Elder
attempted to run out the ball, but was

play. The score became Austin 8-Fen-
wick 6. The remaing minutes of the game
passed quickly with the Friars fighting to
stem the successful thrusts of the Austin
eleven. The line running tactics of the
Maroon and White were responsible for
another hard earned touchdown. The kick
for the point failed and the score became
The final period was spent in watching
the Friars snap pass plays in a futile
attempt to overcome Austin's lead. In the
closing moments Austin snared a reck-
lessly thrown Black and White pass and
with a series of thrusts pushed over for
their last touchdown.
FENWICK 27 ST. PATRICK 0
In whipping St. Patrick 27-0, Fenwick
lived up to its proud tradition of not being
scored upon in an opening league game.
This was due to the brilliant running and
deadly passing of Captain George Elder.
The Friars kicked off to the Shamrocks
to open the game. After an exchange of
punts Fenwick took possession of the ball
on St. Patrick's forty yard line. Elder

Captain Elder galloped around his right
end and over the Shamrock goal line to
ring up another six points for the Friars.
His try for the extra point failed. A few
minutes later he again scored on a fifty-
three yard run and converted the extra
point making the score 20-0.
At this point of the game coach Lawless
sent in a whole new team composed mostly
of sophomores and juniors. With Dillon
and Provenzano carrying the ball the
Friars made a first down on St. Patrick's
nine yard line. On the fourth down Pro-
venzano went over from the seven yard
line and then kicked the point, leaving the
final score Fenwick 27-St. Patrick 0.

H' C" rivalry between the two schools, they
would receive some stiff competition.
And competition they did receive, for the
Friars had a tough time winning the game
loy a score of 13 to 7.
Fenwick scored first on a pass from
Captain George Elder to Frank Korda,
who dashed twenty-five yards to the goal.
Elder added the extra point. Shortly
afterward, the Melfs team shook loose
"Whizzer" White, who swept down the
field eighty yards for a touchdown. Cap-
L' G' tain Stoltman added the extra point.
Time and again in the second and third
periods, the solid St. Mel defense kept the
Friars from scoring. During that time,
Fenwick made drives to the Mel two yard,
nine yard, and eleven yard lines, lout the
St. Mel defense held up every time.
In the fourth period, Elder ran from
the fifteen yard line to the goal, lout loe-
cause of an offside penalty, the play was
called loack. Although this disheartened
the Friars somewhat, they soon came loack,
and another pass from Elder to Korda
netted the second touchdown which sealed
St. Mel's doom.

FENWICK 0 ST. GEORGE 13
Before a large, speedy, and experienced
team, an ever-fighting Friar eleven was
given its first league setback by St.
George of Evanston.
A few minutes after the kickoff, Ned
Maloney recovered a Dragon fumble on
the St. George thirty yard line. Plunges
by Elder and Curran put the ball on the
twenty yard line. However, the St. George
defense tightened, and on the fourth down
a pass from George Elder to Frederick
Taking over the ball on their own
twenty yard line, the Dragons started on
a touchdown march with Grimes and
Phillips leading the offense, consisting of
reverses and spinner plays, St. George
marched seventy-five yards to Fenwick's
five yard line. After a series of thrusts
at the Friar line, Phillips carried the ball
over. An attempted conversion for the
extra point was incomplete.
No serious scoring threat was made
until midway in the third quarter when
an attempted pass, Elder to Brady, was
intercepted by P h il l i p s at mid-field.
Plunges by Phillips and Hoban advanced
the ball to the thirty yard line. From
there, Grimes cut off tackle on a reverse,
and dashed thirty yards to a touchdown.
The extra point was converted by Lecture.
Several offensive drives were attempted
by Fenwick during the remainder of the
period, but St. George held its ground
During the last minutes of the ball
game, several passes were completed, but
a strong defense halted any serious scor-
ing threats. A fine game was played by
George Elder and Bob Curran, who were

FENWICK 0 IGNATIUS 7
Traveling down to a neutral field, the Fighting Friars of
1939 met the tough, hard running St. Ignatius team. Con-
trary to all the previous encounters, Fenwick lost to the
Maroon and Gold for the first time in nine years. This game
was a heart-breaker to lose because with its loss, all hopes of
winning first place in the Catholic League race were blasted.
Moving down the field at the kickoff, Frank Korda,
Fenwick right end, was injured, but he played the rest of
the game. The examinations after the game showed he suf-
fered a ruptured kidney.
The first half progressed slowly with nothing very excit-
ing although Fenwick made several drives deep into St.
Ignatius territory without a score. Even several passes near
the end of the half failed to break the deadlock.
A few minutes after the start of the second half McCaf-
fery, St. Ignatius star ball-carrier, broke for several sizeable
gains. On another run although surrounded by would-be
tacklers, he twisted and squirmed through them and went
sixty yards down the sidelines to score the only touchdown of
the game, Lapping succeeded in converting the extra point.
Although the remaining part of the game was cut short
of long runs, several Fenwick attempts netted a few short
drives. In the last part of the fourth quarter a long pass from
Frederick to Elder was good for forty yards, but Elder was
downed on the twenty yard line, and the game ended without
a Fenwick score.
FENWICK 14 LOYOLA 0
In a game filled with thrills and excitement, played on
Loyola's field, Fenwick handed the northsiders a 14 to 0
After Loyola kicked off to Fenwick, the Friars started
on a touchdown march. With Elder and Curran leading the
attack, Fenwick marched forty yards to Loyola's thirty yard
line, only to be halted by a stubborn defense. Loyola's at-
tempts to gain through the Friar line were futile, and conse-
quently they made few first downs during the game. The
BALL? IN THE AIR. CHAWIN' DIRT. KRASHIN' THRU I
majority of the first half consisted of a brilliant punting duel
between George Elder of Fenwick and Douglas of Loyola.
In the second half Loyola received the kickoff and tried
to score by passes but was unsuccessful. Fenwick took over
the ball on its own thirty yard line, and started on a march
to mid-field. After two thrusts at the line, George Elder
dashed thirty yards to a touchdown. He also converted the
No scoring was done again until the fourth quarter when
the running of Frett and Dunigan placed the ball on the forty
yard line. Again Elder cut through the line, broke into the
clear, and dashed forty yards to a touchdown. The attempt
for extra point was again converted by Elder. During the
latter part of the fourth quarter, Loyola attempted to score
but was stopped by the strong Fenwick defense.
FENWICK 13 ST. PHILIP 0
This game, played at St. Philip's field, brought to a cli-
max Fenwick's fourth annual homecoming. Fenwick emerged
victorious in a game packed with long runs and passes. The
feature of the day was Bernard Frett's running which in-
cluded a seventy-eight yard dash for a touchdown.
The second quarter had scarcely begun when a short pass
from Frederick to Frett was completed and Frett went over
for the Friars first touchdown. The point after touchdown
was converted by George Elder. The rest of the second
quarter was mainly a punting duel between Elder of Fenwick
and Kinsella of St. Philip.
St. Philip nearly scored early in the third quarter when
Kinsella grabbed one of Elder's punts and raced down the
sidelines eluding all the Fenwick tacklers except Elder who
caught him on the twenty yard line. In the very shadow of the
goal posts they were unable to score because of the solid de-
fense of the Friars, and the ball went to Fenwick on downs.
Later Topping, a St. Philip halfback, threw a short flat pass
towards the right end, which was intercetped by Frett who
ran seventy-eight yards to a touchdowng all except two of the
St. Philip's men being cut down by Fenwick blockers. The
attempt at the extra point was unsuccessful and left the score
at the end 13 to 0 in favor of Fenwick.

FENWICK 31 SPALDING 0
For the final game of the "39" season
Coach Lawless took his scrappy Friar squad
down to Peoria, where Tony himself starred
for his Alma Mater, Spalding High.
Fenwick lost no time in getting started.
With the running of Captain Elder, Bob
Curran, and Ed Dunigan, they quickly ad-
vanced to the one yard line. From there
Bob Curran, Friar fullback, plunged over
for the first touchdown. Elder's try for the
point was low.
Early in the second qaurter Elder dropped
back and threw a long pass to Chuck Brady,
right end, who ran unmolested to the goal.
Again Elder's try for the extra point was
low. The half ended with Fenwick leading
Midway in the third quarter a series
of well executed plays again put Fenwick in
scoring position. Again Bob Curran plunged
over for the third Fenwick touchdown. The
try for the point was good.
Early in the fourth quarter Elder's pass
to Ed Dunigan advanced the ball to the two
yard line, but Fenwick lost the ball on
downs. Spa1ding's kick was partially
blocked and Ed Dunigan snared the ball on
the fifteen yard stripe and ran it back to
the two yard line. Ed scored in the next
play for the fourth touchdown. Cullerton,
substitute end failed to convert the extra
Shortly after, Harry Harris, substitute
back, intercepted a Spalding pass, and be-
hind perfect blocking from Fenwick's sub-
stitute team ran 60 yards for the last touch-
down. Cullerton's try for the point failed
and the score remained the same to the end.

LIGHTW EIGHT FOOTBALL
The "Little Friars" just completed one of the
most successful seasons in their history. In the seven
triumphs and no defeats, they rolled up 182 points to
their opponents 37. The first four games were played
on Fenwick's home field. Both the first game with
St. Maryfs Orphanage and the second with St. Philip
were comparatively easy victoriesg the former ended
in a 33-0 score, the latter 25-O. Mt. Carmel stepped for-
ward with more strength and scored two touchdowns
before the Friars managed to tally just before the end
of the first half. When the teams returned to the field
in the second half the "Little Friars" saved the day
with two touchdowns and two safeties.
The last half of the season was comparatively
easy for the lightweights. St. Ignatius fell 30-6 before
the on-rush. Loyola, also a much heavier Austin team,
failed to register as the Friars raced for touchdowns.
St. George on her own field offered the greatest bid
for victory in the last game of the season by running
up 19 points, but the "Little Friars" were determined
not to falter in the last contest. The score was 32-19
at the finish. The boys who proved most valuable
to the team were: Cullerton, Harris, Dillon, and

FENWICK 29 AUSTIN 22
In the opening game of the season Fen-
wick faced the powerful Austin team, later
winner of the Stagg Tournament. The game
was closely contested all the way until the
last quarter when successive baskets by
Giroux, Payette, and Elder decided the
game. Many penalties were called in this
rough, close battle. Jack Giroux paced the
Friar attack chalking up ten points while
Felt led the visitors with eight points.
FENWICK 37 VVELLS 23
Another powerful city team, Wells High,
was the next to fall before Fenwick, 37 to
23. The Friars gained a large lead in the
early part of the ball game, and held on to
that lead to the end. A fine offensive game
was turned in by George Frederick and
Jack Giroux who lead the Friar attack with
eleven and eight points respectively.
FENWICK 21 AUSTIN 24
In another close battle with Austin, the
Friars came out on the short end of a 24 to
21 score. The score was tied throughout the
game until the last minute of play when two
fast baskets by Austin decided the contest.
Jack Giroux again lead the Fenwick attack
counting up eleven points.
SAINT GEORGE TOURNAMENT
In the opening game of the St. George
pre-season tournament, Fenwick defeated
Catholic High of Hammond, Indiana by
a score of 42 to 23. The Friars gained
a large lead in the early part of the game
and went on to win an easy victory. Jack
Payette and Jack Giroux led the Fenwick
attack, and scored fourteen and eleven
The Friars moved a step farther in the
tournament by a 32 to 27 victory over St.
George, The Dragons held a small advan-
tage throughout the game until the last
quarter when Fenwick took the lead and
held it to the end. Jack Payette succeeded
in droping in eighteen points.
Fenwick moved to the final round of the
tournament by edging out a 26 to 25 victory
over Leo High. The game was tied all the
way, but with ten seconds to play George
Elder took the ball to put it through the
hoop just as the gun went off.

time in the contest did Loyola threaten to
take the lead. Payette and Frederick paced
the Fenwick attack with ten points each.

been predicted to lose this game, lout the
victory turned out to toe the surprise of the
season. The Friars started out strongly, lout
in the second quarter, St. Pat's made fifteen
points to lead at the half and coast on to
victory. Elder and Payette shared scoring
honors with eight points each.

the Fenwick gymnasium. With St. George
leading 21 to 29, George Frederick, Fen-
wick's forward, sank a long field goal at the
final gun to tie the game 31-31. Thereupon
followed a heated technical argument over
the termination of the game. Jack Tierney,
Dragon Coach, wanted the first basket to
win. Coach Lawless insisted on a three
minute overtime period. A coin flip settled
the outcome in favor of a three minute
period. Both teams returned to the floor
and fought like demons for the ball. Finally
Giroux, Fenwick's Captain, tapped in a re-
bound which won the game and moved
Fenwick back to second place in the league

In a game played at St. Mel's gymnasium,

was defeated for the second time this season.
Led by Jack Payette and Hap Lewis, the

The junior division of the Fenwick

a fine drive for supremecy the past season.
Many of their games were nip and tuck
affairs but the team was always in there
fighting hard. These boys packed thrills
into their games-the kind that spectators
like to cheer. Certainly they had speed
and courage-qualities which make a team
interesting to watch.
Only two regulars returned form last
season, Captain Frank Doonan and Bill

around them. Quinlan, Provanzano, Har-

be dependable and the team improved

came back courageously at the opening of

a bid for the highest honors. Throughout
the season the contests were close. Many
games, such as the opening victory over

cz FENWICK first . .
Fenwick held its first annual junior basketball tour-
nament during the Christmas holidays of 1939. Every
team of the Catholic League was invited and all responded
except Joliet. The teams represented were: St. Mel, St.
Philip, St. Patrick, St. George, Loyola, De Paul, Mt. Carmel,
St. Leo, De La Salle, St. Rita, St. Ignatius, Weber, St.
Michael, Lewis Holy Name Institute, and Fenwick.
The junior Friars captured a comfortable lead from
De Paul in the first part of the opening round but with
an exceptional burst of speed De Paul soon brought its
host to an under position and won by a score of 25 to 19.
After many exciting games St. George took the runner-up
contest from St. Mel 26 to 255 Mount Carmel, however,
carried off the trophy with a 34 to 26 victory over St.
An all-tournament team selected by the coaches and
officials included Jim Shields, St. Patrick's, and John
Kempfer, Mt. Carmel, forwards, Frank Kelly, Leo, centerg
Tom Walsh, St. George, and Ed. Klimek, Mt. Carmel,
guards. Ray Crowley of St. Mel's was awarded the most
valuable player trophy.

During the past year the bantam and
fly-weight teams had a moderately suc-
cessful season. Although handicapped by
lack of size and practice, they showed the
true Fenwick spirit in all their encounters.
Due to the great distance many of the
players could not always be present for
practice, which was held by Father Fel-
trop on Wednesday and Sunday evenings.
Most of the players were from either the
Freshmen or Sophomore class.
On the Bantams those who bore the
heavy end of the burden were: J. Curin,
J. Reilly, and W. Kirby at forwardg A.

Fenwick wins Catholic League
Fenwick's swimming team opened the
season on February 10 with a preliminary
meet against one of the strongest com-
petitive teams in the state, Lane Tech of
Chicago. Five new records were set by the
opponents in the course of the meet, and it
was no surprise when Lane swam away
with a 49-14 victory. The following
Saturday, February 17, the tankers jour-
neyed to Maine and again they found the
competition too much for them, when
Maine splashed to an easy victory with
a score of 56-14.
Undaunted by their lack of success in
the first two meets the Friars applied
themselves even more dilignetly to prac-
tice under the direction of the swimming
coach Dick Thompson. By the time the
opening date of the Catholic Leauge rolled
around the Friars were ready to revenge
their former defeats. The swam out with
confidence on February 21 to meet the
team from Loyola. Cutting an even stroke
the Friars piled up a favorable score of 41
to the opponents 283 they did this by
taking first in all but two events.
The next encounter came on February
27 when Austin lost first place in all but
the 50 yard breaststroke. This victory of
42-18 raised the hopes of the Friars still
higher. Holding to their consistent score
Fenwick's senior swimmers again met
Loyola on March 9 and splashed to the
tune of 44-25 over their opponents. The
team captained by Joe Elwood won every
event but the backstroke and the diving.
In a triangular meet between St. Igna-
tius, Leo, and Fenwick Monday, March 18,
the Friar tankers outswam their oppo-
nents and rolled up a score of 41 points,
Leo came second with 22 points, and St.
Ignatius close behind with 16 points. At
this meet the Friars let several junior

team for exercise before the Catholic

Although the Friar team roster con-
sisted of both senior and junior members,
it presented one of the most formidable
and most powerful teams entered in the
Catholic League competition. The most

yard free style, the 50 yard breast-stroke and the medley relay. Loyola,
the Friars' Northside rival, managed to win the other three events.
Fenwick scored 41 points, Loyola, 323 Leo, 13, Philip, 45 and St. Ignatius

Although suffering two defeats at the begin-
ning of the season, Dick Thompson's "Little
Friars" advanced rapidly under his careful tute-
lage in the art of swimming. By mid-season they
had gained speed and form, thus offsetting by
a strong finish the losses sustained at the start
of competition. They ended the season with three
victories against three losses. Among the Fresh-
men W. Hatch, Le Brun, and Hoelzer showed
promise, While the more experienced men, J.
Collins, Jarka, W. Buckingham gave evidence of
improvement. The "Little Friars" are expected to
on the precedent set by former teams.

"That's a round!" and so began eliminations
for Fenwick's tenth annual Silver Glove tourna-
ment Which was conducted April 12 in the school
gym. During the last decade this contest has
brought forth more participants than any other
intramural sport. This year 255 boys turned out
to try their skill in the art of self defense. The
elimination process, which took seven Weeks to
terminate and in which 245 bouts were fought,
was carried on in the daily gym classes and after
school hours. The more skillful contestants con-
tinued towards the top while the losers gracefully
took their leave for the sidelines.
In the lightest division, the 90 pound class,
Merl McNellis defeated Danny Mueller before an
enthusiastic audience. In the 115 pound class
Bill Keegan beat Bob Dohrman in a real slugging
festivalg Keegan threw his left hard and Worked
so effectively that Bob, though he did his best,
was forced to succumb to Keegan's drive. Frank
McGovern, a little 115 pounder, took the decision
over Tom Weger. Both boys were clever in their
art and the fight proved a thriller. Bob Hermann
Won his silver glove trophy by defeating Tom
Culligan in the 125 pound class, and Bay O'Brien
won his by taking the decision over Jack Marka-
rian in the 135 pound division.
As We move into the heavier divisions We find
Bill Kelleher, a senior, too much for George
Mullen in the 145 pound Weight. Bill has par-
ticipated in the contest of the previous years but
each time lost by a "hair." In the 155 pound
listing Mario Zanoni, a constant trophy winner,
won a very close decision over Jay McDonald.
This fight provided one of the greatest thrills of
the evening. The unlimited division Was repre-
sented by Jack Larkin and John Griffithg Larkin
Won an easy victory.
Just before the above mentioned bouts there
was a spectacular exhibition of "Grunt and
Groan" put on by two professional wrestlers.
This was preceded by the preliminary bouts. The
Winners of these fights Were: Jack Quirk, 90

performed remarkably well.
In the dashes T. Moore, F. Schell,

On Saturday April 20, Fenwick golf hopefuls
journeyed out to the Midwest golf course to Vie
with one another for positions on the golf team.
A new low was set this year when Bill Riley came
through with an undisputed 77 to win over
another senior Bill Crews who swung an 80
before the last hole was made. The winner of the
junior championship was Joe Kennelly, who shot
an 84. The sophomore contest ended in a 93 tie
between Art Doody and George Jeske. Doody
won the playoff. Roger O'Connor took the fresh-
men championship with a 96.
As in former years the boys picked at this tour-
nament were placed under Mr. "Merrie" White,
professional of the La Grange Country Club, to
be trained for interscholastic contests.
Again this year the tennis team was picked by
the tournament process, the winners and runners
up being chosen to represent Fenwick in school
meets. Frank McNichols, the Winner of the
singles and with George Grady, co-winner of the
doubles, was chosen as captain of the team. The
other members of the team were: C. Singer,
W. Brady, J. Burke, and W. Doherty.

I TRAMURAL PORT
One of the most important intramural
activities of the year is the basketball
tournament. This year 232 boys, who
made up 29 teams, entered the contest.
The teams were made up from the differ-
ent Religion classesg each class had a light
and a heavy team. All of the elimination
games were played after school.
The juniors under the leadership of
Captain Red Brennen won out in the
heavyweight division which consisted of
sixteen teams. The lightweight senior
team captained by E. Brady took the
victory in their division.
In the intramural swimming meet the
seniors placed one member on the team,
but the sophomores held all other posi-
tions. B. McGovern, senior, copped the
25-yd. free style, H. Venn, sophomore,
was victorious in the 50-yd. free style,
T. Quirk, sophomore, won the 25-yd.

the winners in the 100-yd. relay. The
75-yd. medley was won by T. Quirk,

CO PETITIQ for LL
This is the third year that volleyball
has been listed on as one of the major
intramural activities. Sixty teams com-
posed of 440 students started the season
to compete with one another for cham-
pionship and bronze medals. For the
second time a team from the senior class
rose to the top as Victors. The team was
led by captain Frank Schell, with Frank
McNichols, Jack Giroux, Joe Elwood, Ed.
Vertovec, and Frank Doonan making up
the balance of the team.

During the ping-pong season one can
always find an enthusiastic crowd gath-
ered around the ping-pong tables. The
click of the feather-weight ball repeats in
rapid succession as it speeds swiftly be-
tween the contenders. Although William
McGregor, senior and last year's cham-
pion, has many challengers and still more
admirers around the ping-pong table, he
has not yet found an equal, consequently
he remains the champion in the singles.
Frank lVIcNichols and George Frederick,
both seniors, share the crown by winning
the championship in the finals of the

William Hosty, sophomore, chalked up

In the bowling doubles two seniors, Ed.
Brady and Dixie Carraher, topped all com-
petitors to place their names among the
intramural Fenwick champion of 1940.
Passing proved to be one of the most
enticing intramurals this past year. Out
of the 362 students who entered the con-
test four students were chosen to compete
on intramural nightg of these Ed. Verto-
vec, senior, was declared winner of the
gold football when he completed 13 out of
a possible 30 passes.
This year a new game, loop-tennis, was
added to the list of intramural activities.
It proved to be an attractive and fascinat-
ing game which attracted many students
into the tournament which was played
during the gym classes. The winner of
the first tournament of loop-tennis was
a junior, Joe Baldasarri.

its Confraternity members, Jack Kern, chosen as Treasurer
The most practical purpose of the Confraternity, that
of raising funds for foreign and domestic missions, was
carried out by numerous endeavors. The most prominent
of these were-The Confraternity Dance, Friday, October

record dance in May. Great interest was also realized
throughout the sectional confraternities in the distribution
of pamphlets concerning questions of interest to all high
As is the custom every year, the Confraternity deliv-

osity of the students over one hundred baskets were
distributed. The activity was under the direction of
Father J. M. Nugent.
During the first semester the offices of president,
vice-president, secretary, and treasurer of the Confrater-
nity were filled by John Walsh, Ned Maloney, George

was organized during the latter half of the current school
year at Fenwick. With Father Barron as Moderator, Club
members are being trained to assume a more intimate and
active part in the Dominican liturgical services which are
so vital a part of Christian Catholic Education: daily Mass
in the school chapel, weekly Benediction of the Most Blessed
Sacrament in the gymnasium, and various other services
which occur during the course of the school year. It is
hoped that with the reassembling of the members at the
beginning of the new year, 1940-1941, the Club will assume
a more definite organization for the furtherance of its
purpose and will make itself an integral part of school life

As is the custom, the elimination of boy
and girl contestants was held separately
at which three finalists were chosen for
each group. Eight boys and sixteen girls
from twenty-four Catholic high schools
entered the contest. Representatives of
the different high schools throughout the
city acted as judges in these contests.
Because of the installation of Chicago's
new archbishop, Samuel Stritch, which
took place on the Feast of Saint Thomas,
March 7, the symposium was held this
year on the following Sunday afternoon.
This date made possible the attendance
of a large number of the parents and

been unable to have been present on
a week day.

ATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
BERNARD E. FRETT, '40, is renowned
for a scholastic career in which he was
conspicuous for his modesty, his earnest
devotion, and loyalty to all things that
affected the well being of Fenwick. His
leadership is of the well rounded variety
-he led his class on the Honor Roll, was
elected treasurer of the Senior Class,
played fullback on the football team, and
was Editor-in-chief of the 1940 Black-
friars. For such service and leardership
Bernard received membership in the Na-
tional Honor Society on April 26.
FRANK B. KELLEHER, '40, was the
second member to be enrolled in the
National Honor Society this year. Frank's
leadership was shown more by the pen
than the sword. Besides his scholastic
record, his work on the Wick and on
Blackfriars, and his untiring labor in
collecting and distributing Christmas bas-
kets have merited for him the coveted
position in the two yead old Society.
JAMES E. MCDONALD, '40, finds the
compass an instrument worthy of being
enshrined for its usefulness to leaders.
Mathematics, however, is not the only fort
of strength "Jay" possesses: he can meas-
ure arms with the best of them in the
boxing ring and find time to take his post
as copy editor on the Wick between bouts
and fill in the afternoon winning debates
from opposing teams.
FRANK J. SCHELL, '40, climbed to the
front with al camera in his hand. Many
of the pictures in this volume of Black-
friars are the fruit of his labors. Frank
was an active member of Fenwick on the
track team and in intramural sports, and
was president of the General Confrater-
nity the last semester of his senior year.
Energetic in his actions and prolific in
ideas, he has lent support to anything that

In March 1.940 the
AQUINAS DISCUSSIO CL B . . .
was organized as an auxiliary unit of the Saint Thomas
Confraternity and the Fenwick Cisca Club. It was begun
under the direction of Father L. Nugent in response to per-
suasive requests of a group of Fenwick Ciscans: J. Duffy,
C. Enyart, J. Kern, J. Lightner, and L. Dereng.
The club, which meets once a week after school, provides
an opportunity to analyze the subject matter for the Cisca
meeting of the following Saturday and enables its members
to discuss more thoroughly and understand more exactly the
subjects to be proposed at the General Confraternity meet-
ings, thereupon confidence is acquired in self-expression, and
the General Meetings become more interesting. Guy Munger
and "Jakei' Lightner were the most active discussion leaders.
Among the topics treated this year were: "The Right to
Private Property," the many phases of "Christocracy," and
"The Church and Social Order" fthe subject of the recent
statement of the United States Catholic hierarchyb.
The Aquinas club was well receivedg the members were
faithful and enthusiastic and now have a deeper understand-
ing of the principles of Catholic Action. They are better able
to express themselves on current Catholic issues, to interpret
Catholic thought, and give vitality to a much needed organ-

DEB TI G UNION.
in action if you want to witness one of the foremost societies
of Fenwick. Father Conway, its founder and present director,
has sent his speakers into seventy-two debates this past
season. These engagements were with local and out-of-town
schools, twenty-one in number. The activities of the Debating
Union are not confined to debates with schools of the Catholic
League, for it is now a member of the Metropolitan League,
a group of public schools.
The Debating Union was represented at the Annual
Catholic Tournament at Winona, Minnesota, by J. McDonald,
G. Munger, J. Twomey, and J. Kelly. This tournament, spon-
sored by St. Mary's College, gives our students a chance to
meet and debate with the best students from Catholic Schools
in the Middle West.
Among other students who represented Fenwick on
several occasions during the season are George Nicklas,
Philip Sheridan, and John Tierney. Near the end of the
season a Junior Team was organized which competed in
debates with other schools, its members being T. Conlon,
R. Goedert, M. Healy, and E. Kerr. The school may well be
proud of the students who represented it this year.
The topic for discussion this year was: Resolved: "that
the United States government should own and operate the
railroads? This topic was most capably treated by the men
of both affirmative and negative teams.
In many non-decisions debates the younger members were
given an opportunity to show their skill and experience.
Many underclassmen are entering this society for they see the
value of reasoning and speaking well-two valuable assets in

the highest number of votes, and chosen
to be the editor-in-chief, was Bernard
Frett. Regular classes Were conducted to
instruct the new staff in yearbook building
and editing, for most of the students had
,little or no experience in such a line.
Small groups were appointed to each of
the phases covered by the book. Each boy
had his duty and each responded.
Father Quinn continued as business
moderator because of his untiring Work
and success last year. It was his duty,
with the aid of his managers and assist-
ants, to solicit advertisements and to get
subscriptions. A new Way of disposing
of the annuals Was devised this year. In
order to make it easier for the students
to pay for their books, punch cards were

an organization which is very much a part
of the extra-curricular activities here at
Fenwick. The band in the last year has
had a phenomenal growth, both in musi-
cianship and membership. It attained
a new high in membership, and received
honors in the diocesan contest for its very
hard and difficult work. It rounded out
an eventful season under the leadership
of Mr. John Sovinec, Director, and Father
Simones, Moderator. Mr. Sovinec is well
equipped for this position having studied
for many years under such a teacher as
Herbert Clark. He is also the director of
the Chicago Boy's Club Band, a three time
winner of the Tribune Music Festival held
each summer at Soldiers Field.
This season the membership of the Band
was increased by seventeen freshmen
members, who were enthusiastic in this
activity, eager to learn and willing to be
taught. A number of new instruments was
purchased giving a better balance of
instrumentation to the band. The practice
studio was moved to more suitable quar-
ters in the tower of the school.

The playing season began October 8, at
the football game with St. Mel. After an
auspicious debut at Mill's Stadium, the
band played for all the football games
and for othe athletic events held in the
gymnasium. It also gained much recogni-
tion for its Work at the St. Thomas Sym-
posium. In the contest for secondary
schools sponsored by the Catholic Music
Educators Association, the band was given
first, or superior, rating for Class C
bands. In the solo held at Loretto Acad-
emy for the Catholic schools of the city,

We noticed that in 1937 and 1938 the band

We welcome the
DRAMATIC CL B
again to the extra curricular activities at Fenwick after an absence of one
year. This rebirth of the theatre in the school is the result of the coming
of Father Madrick to Fenwick. All activities of the Thespians are in his
hands, and under his excellent guidance and tutelage, they promise to go
In the dramatic season just past, "Penrod," a four-act comedy, was
presented at the Austin Town Hall. This production was based upon the
famous novel by Booth Tarkington, and produced by special arrangement
with Samuel French of New York. Its cast contained eighteen characters.
All the roles were filled by members of the Freshmen Class. Richard
Mullen enacted the leading role of Penrod Schofield, while the part of his
friend, Sam Williams, was taken by Willis Marquardt. This initial effort
was a huge success, promoting its director and the players to look forward
to very successful presentations in the future.
For next year is planned a complete organization of the Dramatic
Club. It will be opened to all students, but its officers will be chosen from
among the members of the upper classes.

to bring out local talent from its hiding. Each year Father Malone's
junior religion class sponsors this rather informal exhibition of capabili-
ties and provides an evening of fun. This year the committees were
headed by Dick Murphy. John McGowan and Joe Edelen had charge of
the publicity, Charles Brady arranged the entertainment, Jack O'Donnell
took care of the stage, and Paul Sikorski was in charge of the tickets.
The small admission fee was turned over to the St. Thomas Confraternity
to be used in helping the missions.
The program consisted of three types of entertainers: vocal, instru-
mental, and novelty. The following members participated:
Vocal: Emidio Marzicola, Dixie Carraher: The Three Aristocrats of
Song-Dick Buckingham, Guy Munger, and John O'Donnell, and Art
Doody and Frank Weger.
Instrumental: Piano-Jack Jones, Jack Milder, R. Vraniak, John
Clark, and Milton Flyke, Accordion-Robert Strueber, Tony Cihlar, and
Bob Arzt, Trumpet-Edward Dunigan, Herbert Harrison, and Tom
Weger, Saxophone-J oe Elwood.
Novelty acts: James Collins with action drawings, William Dayton,
Joe Edelen, and J. Franklin in radio play "The Substitute", Dick Buck-
ingham and Jack Griffith in a comedy act, Charles Curran, magician,
Jack Kern and partner in a dance act.
The program varied from professional caliber down to the type that
is booed from the stage, but the large audience accepted everything in the
spirit in which it was given. The winners of the cash prizes were: Dixie
Carraher first and Emidio Marzicola second in the vocal section, Edward
Dunigan, cornetist, first and Tony Cihlar, with accordion, second in the
instrumental group, Charles Curran, magician. first and Dick Bucking-
ham and John Griffith second with their comedy skit in the novelty

has been more active than the one of the past
year. The moderator of the club, Father Connolly,
and its members under the leadership of Mrs. Roy
E. Curran have done all in their power to be
worthy of the favor they ask of Almighty God
in the prayer of the Mothers' Club: "Dear Lord,
we beseech Thee with earnest hearts to bless this
Work undertaken for Thy Glory and the honor
of Thy Immaculate Mother."
Besides the regular meetings on the First Fri-
day of each school month, the mothers of the
students have undertaken various social activi-
ties. The first event of the school year was a card
party in the school gym on October 20. In Novem-
ber an informal barn dance Was given at the
school. A most enjoyable time was had by allvvho
attended. In the line of formal affairs, the club
could not be outdone in its annual formal dinner-
dance held at the Stevens Hotel on December 2.
This affair was also participated in by the
Fathers' Club. February 2, was "Guest Day"
-a day on which the members of the club were
invited to come accompanied by friends as their
guests. The program for the meeting, as always,
provided for a most enjoyable afternoon.
The most important financial undertaking of
the year was the card party held in the school gym
on April 26. This truly was a great success
-financially as well as socially. The climax of

the activities for the year, however, was the
dinner given for the graduating class of 1940.
This event Was given by the Mothers' in conjunc-
tion With the Fathers' Club on June 4 at the
Lake Shore Athletic Club. It is altogether fitting
and proper that the Club be thanked most heartily
for this affair as Well as for all the encourage-
ment and assistance it has offered to the class of
1940 in its four years at Fenwick.
With the end of the school year comes the end
of the activities of this Wonderful society. When

are not confined merely to social events,
for the club offers to its members all the
recreational facilities of the school. It also
holds an annual Retreat at the Dominican
House of Studies in River Forest. Last
year this retreat was given June 16-18
with Father Wynne conducting. Father
McDermott, the newly chosen moderator
and Mr. Frank McNichols, the president
of the club, agree, however, that the prop-
er response has not been given to the
efforts of the active members of the club.
In order to increase the already large
attendance at the regular Monday night
meetings, captains have been appointed in
each parish within the range of Fenwick
to see to it that all the members are in-
formed of the nature of the club and its
meetings. It has been the intention of the
club to arrange a monthly get-together of
the fathers and sons at which refresh-
ments and entertainment would be offered
at the expense of the club.
The Fathers' Club most graciously re-
warded the 1939 football team by giving
in its honor the Annual Football Banquet.
This affair took place December 12, 1939

at the Morrison Hotel. The event was
a financial success as opposed to previous
years. The club was most active in making
the barn dance a great social event.
lt is the purpose of the club to provide
financial assistance to the school as much
as possible without burdening the parents
and friends o Fenvvickg consequently,
only two financial undertakings Were
arranged for the year-the Football Ban-
quet being the first and the Carnival the
second. The latter took place in the school
gym on the nights of May 23, 24, 25.
Mr. Frank lVlcNichols was chairman for
the affair which provided an opportunity
for real enjoyment. The carnival, among
other things gave away a Chevrolet coach.
The Fathers' Club spared nothing neces-
sary for the success of the Senior Dinner
which it gave in conjunction with the
Mothers' Club for the graduating class of
It is evident that the members of the
Fathers' Club have not the time to devote
to the school that they would like to.
Nevertheless We marvel at the Wonderful
Work done by this society.

night at Fenwick. On that evening each week the active
members join in the varied program of sports and games
at their command in the school gym. This weekly meeting
does much toward keeping former students in contact with
one another and cementing earlier friendships.
The first major activity of the Alumni during the past
year was a get-together dance in the Fenwick gym on
November 4, the eve of the Home-Coming game. The fo.l-
lowing day a large number turned out to witness their
Alma Mater triumph 13-0 over St. Philip. During the
Christmas holidays, on December 27, the Alumni sponsored
a winter formal at the Congress Casino where a goodly
number of members and friends danced to the music of
Ted Fio Rito and his orchestra.
Each spring it is the custom of the Alumni to attend
Solemn High Mass and receive in a body before the annual
Communion Breakfast. This is usually given after school
closes so that the new members can attend. Plans have
been made to have it on June 9 this year. The officers and
committees are making arrangements also for the annual
summer formal which is being given this year on June 14
at the Medinah Country Club.
