' "Before the altar, before God, l wish to express my gratitude to all who have worked to help me during my time as principal here." These were the words of Rev. William A. Fincel, OP., whose term as head of Fenwick had just expired. "With final thanks l wish to thank the faculty and the students. This will be my farewell. I offer this Mass for your intentions." On this Wednesday morning, October 23, Father Fincel closed an eleven-year period as a member of the faculty. l-le taught biology until his appointment as principal almost four years ago. During his term as head of Fenwick he instigated numerous changes. The present system of vocational counselor was established. ln i939 the National Honor Society enrolled its first Fenwick members. The new plan of giving marks bi-weekly, the elimination of conditional examinations, a speech class for freshmen-these and numerous other improvements were introduced while Father Fincel was in charge. Everyone here at Fenwick wishes Father the greatest success in his future undertakings. New Rev, w. A. FINCEL, o.P., MA. al . . 4 . 4 . Mm REV. J. R. KELLEHER, OP., MA. Rev. John Raphael Kelleher, O.P., has just concluded his first year as principal of Fenwick, having taken up his duties on October 24. Previous to his coming here, Father Kelleher, who left his position as pastor of a parish in Ponchatoula, Louisiana, has had experience in school work. He taught general science and algebra at Fenwick during the first year that the school was opened, then joined the faculty of Providence College. Before that he served as a radio operator in the navy and attended Catholic University as well as several Dominican l-louses of Study. Father Kelleher in his short time as principal has carried out even further the principles of his predeces- sors. ln forwarding the Dominican method of education, he has done his utmost to promote the ideals of Fenwick and to keep this school one of the foremost Catholic institutions in the archdiocese.

Page Ten German, Latin, and Religion llli iilillil M To provide for the various needs of Fenwick students, three courses of study have been arranged -the General, the Classical, and the Scientific. The General Course is designed for the student who will have to go to work upon graduation. Therefore, as much scholastic training as possible is given. lt includes such subjects as English, history, mathematics, economics, and civics. lt has the advantage of giving the students many electives. The course is so arranged that upon graduation the student will be qualified to enter college, but emphasis is placed on the general rather than upon the specific training. The Classical Course is recommended for those boys who wish to secure a degree from a college as a Bachelor of Arts, Philosophy, or Literature. lt is the proper group of studies to select, if the student wishes to specialize in letters, law, medi- cine, etc., or to enter the Dominican Order or Secular Priesthood. Classical and modern lan- guages, and the credits required for college en- trance are included. REV. J. S. KENNEDY, O.P., MA Latin REV. R. B.

The relations between the faculty, students, and parents have always been of the friendliest sort.

On Parents' Night, the parents are given a special invitationto see their sons in action in the classroom, and to discuss their son's problems with the priest. , l The faculty is more than a group of men who teach the boys, it is the body which governs some 580 students for six of the most important hours of their day, Each of the priests has an influence ,MNKM REV.

There is no better judge of human nature, no one who knows better how to for- mulate good character than a Catholic priest. Consequently, the faculty is well qualified to do a good job of character developing. As friends, counselors, and teachers, the mem- bers of the faculty are for four of the most important years of a boy's life, the most in- fluential of leaders toward making him a bet- ter Catholic man. For it is during these years - i. J. ,. - , f that the habits of thinking, speaking, and acting, which he will carry with him for life, are developed. The various classes have moderators, whose duty it is to assist the boys in class affairs. Their sound advice and helpful hints aid the student personally. The same office is held by Father Connolly in the Mothers' Club and Father Fisher in the Fathers' Club. Father Kennedy is moderator of the Alumni association.

The main reason why any Catholic institution has its doors open is to teach religion. Fenwick boasts of a religious system equalled by few other high schools in the diocese. Of course, there is a class in religion every day for each ot the stu- dents. But it is more the phases of the subject studied than religion in general which makes the course so valuable. The curriculum is so planned that the student, when he graduates, is well versed in dogma and morals, Scripture, Church history, and Catholic apologetics. From his freshman year the student's mind is molded so that he can discuss intelligently almost any religious question from the Catholic point of view. For example, if an argument as to atheistic principles arises, an alumnus of Fenwick should be able to cope with it from the knowledge gained during his senior year. The courses are conducted by priests-theologians of the Catholic Church- who are well acquainted with Christian doctrine. ln addition to the regular religious instruction in the classroom there-are extra-curricular religious REV.

Each day of the school year a Mass is said by a member of the faculty for those students who wish to attend. During Lent the Sacrifice is cele- brated in the gymnasium, thus allowing a greater amount of space for the larger congregation. The Mass is said, of course, according to the Domini- can rite. On all the First Fridays of the year the students are required to attend Mass in the gymnasium. At these Masses Communion is distributed. Usually more than half the student body receives the Sacrament. Breakfast is provided in the cafeteria after Mass. Each Friday afternoon at about 2:l5 there is Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. The religious groups are the Aquinas Discus- sion Club and the Servers' Club. Both operate under the direction of Father Barron. ln the Discussion Club social problems are considered in the light of Catholic moral teaching. Members ofthe Servers' Club assist at Mass and Benediction. w Oz REV. A. B. NIESER, O.P., BA- REV. M. M.

A brief perusal of this book will suffice to show how Fenwick and her teachers fulfill their duty to God and Catholic secondary education in the United States by training young men in the knowledge of Christian principles of right living so that they may bring to the commu- nities in which they spend their lives the advantages of a Christian heritage twenty centuries old--the great moral training and guidance of the Catholic Church.

The freshmen submitted and celebrated the cessation of the terrorism by their first class party in the gymnasium at Thanksgiving time. Mean- while officers ofthe class had been appointed by school officials. They were: George Beckley, president, R. Murphy, vice-president, J. Jones, secretary, J. Anlauf, treasurer, and G. Mullen, parliamentarian. The Rev. W. D. Van Rooy became moderator. In scholastic honors, G. Keller, W. McGah, and Joseph O'Keefe led the class, appearing regularly on the honor roll. Ed McGinty upheld the honor of the freshmen in the famous spelling duel with the second year men. At the end of the year the freshmen under the direction of their moderator pub- lished the first all-freshmen newspaper. By playing at the Loyola basketball championship as a member of the Fenwick team defending its championship, Jack Payette helped distinguish the class, as did those first year men who fought their way to the finals of the intramural boxing tourney. Returning the following September as mature and distinguished sopho- mores, the class elected their officers-Ned Maloney, president, Joseph O'Keefe, vice-president, John Hopkinson, secretary, and John Cox, treasurer. Keller and McGah continued their work as scholastic leaders of the class, while J. Twomey and J. Kelly took an active part in public speaking activity. The band had by this time a large number of the class enrolled as members. At the end of the second semester when a call was issued for Wick reporters twenty-three of the class volunteered for the jobs. Maloney, Kennelly, Olsen, and Brady were the most likely prospects in football, with Payette, Doherty, and Joe O'Keefe gaining prominence on the basketball floor. W. Brown, R. Buckingham, J. McGowan, and Ray Collins helped the swimmers retain their league title. After a summer of vacationing the Class of '4l came back to school in September, l939, ready as juniors, to take an active part in all school affairs. Joe O'Keefe and Ned Maloney were elected as president and vice-president of the class, while Dick Buckingham came into office as secretary, and George Mullen as treasurer. John Twomey joined G. Keller and W, McGah as a consistent honor roll man. In the band J. Twomey won the office of vice-president while Bob Dooley assisted him as secretary. John Kelly, Guy Munger, and Jack Twomey took over three of the four positions on the school's debate team and participated in both league debates with other Catholic high schools and in the interstate tournament at Winona, Minnesota, conducted by St. Mary's College. Socially, the class now came into its own, since it was permitted by the school to sponsor its own dances and activities. A successful Junior Prom held at the Knickerbocker Hotel on Easter Monday was the chief social event of the year. l-lowever, the class did not remain inactive the rest ofthe time. A junior religion class, taught by Father Malone, sponsored the annual Amateur Night. "Buckingham's Folly," a melodrama starring Buckingham and John Griffith, highlighted the show. Ned Maloney again demonstrated his ability at athletics on the football team, along with Kennelly, and Bob Allen, who had worked his way up to first-string center. Payette, l-larvey, and Doherty starred again in basket- ball, Payette playing with the senior team. R. Buckingham, Jim Burke, J. McGowan, W. Cullerton, W. O'Leary, R. Thomfns, W. Brown, and Ray Collins again helped the swimming team hold its tit e. On arriving for opening classes as seniors in September of l94O, most of the class found that as fourth year men they had extra duties and respon- sibilities to assume, both in studies and extra-curricular activities. At the first class meeting of the year, Ned Maloney was elected as class president, Richard Buckingham, vice-president, Robert Allen, secretary, and James Burke, treasurer. Seniors took over much of the responsibility in publishing the All-Amer- ican Wick, since they had key positions on the staff of the paper. Richard Buckingham as editor, Guy Munger as assistant editor, and John Tierney as copy editor. Joe Anlauf took care of the sports department while George Keller handled the first page, Bob Dooley, the second page, Charles Jardine, Joe O'Keefe, and William Jeffrey assisted in the editing and publishing. Debating came into the lead when an all-senior team of John Kelly and Guy Munger, affirmative, and John Tierney and John Twomey, negative, won three championships in a row-the first, the Chicago Catholic I-ligh School Debate League title in competition with other Catholic high schools of the city, the second, the well-known St. Mary's tournament, bringing together sixteen teams from four Midwestern states, the final championship, a West Side title in a tourney sponsored by l-lennepin-Shield Council of the Knights of Columbus. Fenwick took first place in all three of these contests. Jack Twomey won second place in the St. Thomas Symposium. ln various other activities senior class members excelled. George Kel- ler, as editor, led the Blackfriars to a successful completion, while John Westenhaver furnished the majority of action pictures for the book. Guy Munger represented the school as corresponding secretary of Cisca. Father Simones, band moderator, appointed four seniors as officers early in the year. They were: George Welch, president, Bill Doherty, vice- president, Guy Munger, secretary, and Joe Anlauf, treasurer. John Twomey, George Keller, William McGah, John Tierney, and Jo- seph O'Keefe vied for top scholastic honors through the year. The National l-lonor Society added new senior members to its list, they were: Joseph An- lauf, James Burke, William Doherty, William Jeffrey, George Keller, John Kelly, Guy Munger, Joseph O'Keefe, John Tierney, and John Twomey. Socially, the senior class sponsored the yearly Football Dance on Janu- ary 3, l94l, and Senior Dance, June 9. Standing out as stars on the football team were Captain Ned Maloney, Bob Allen, W. Cullerton, and C. Brady. Captain Payette, Bill Doherty, C. Brady, B. Aamodt, Ray O'Connell, and Joe Ryan led the basketball team through the season. Once again Fenwick retained the Catholic with seniors, Captain Bill Brown, Bob Thomas, Dick Buckingham, John McGowan, Jim Burke, and Ray Collins defending the title. During their four years at Fenwick the Class of l94l has worked under three principals-Father Baeszler for half of their freshman year, Father Fincel for the next two and a half years, and Father Kelleher for their final year. ln this time they have taken part in every activity of the school- scholastic, social, and athletic.

Page Thirty-one 'Xi fs Ellllilllllll lllllli Interesting and novel ideas have been presented throughout the year to make more enjoyable, as well as educational, the courses presented at Fen- wick. All the students found their work made more interesting due to proj- ects, new equipment, and other classroom helps. In the first place one cannot help but notice the important place reli- gious instruction holds in the curriculum. Besides the spirit of religion which permeates all the classes, a full period of formal religion is offered to each student every day. Classes for the improvement of reading and speech, inaugurated as part of the English courses, have very definitely shown their merit. The students' recitations are made with the exactness of an oration. Thus while learning their regular lessons, the class is also being educated in speech. Upon entering any senior American history class, one would be remind- ed of the Senate in session. Open debates have been encouraged on the material being covered in class. This took hold rapidly and hardly a day passed without a heated discussion. Weekly papers on outside reading supplement the course and are required of every student. Great improvement in the biology laboratory has been made in the last few years. New equipment has presented many additional advantages to the biology students. These improvements include an incubator, aquarium, and models of various animals, some of which were constructed by the students. For the last two years Wick members have received preliminary instruc- tions in a special journalism class. This one semester subject, affiliated with the junior English course, has presented to the boys a well rounded knowledge of newspaper activities. By the time these budding journalists have finished this course they have written, edited, and laid out at least one complete newspaper page. German classes have been showing their ability in the musical field. Having the use of many German records, the students often sing popular German folk songs. As a help for future courses vocational conferences were conducted again this year. Outstanding men in all fields of business were invited to lecture on their professions. These talks were open to both juniors and se- niors. Because of the remarkable success that these conferences have met with, it is hoped they will be annual practices at Fenwick. Scientific studies take an important part in school activities. Two large and well equipped laboratories present to ambitious students opportu- nities to secure a sound foundation in scientific studies. These periods help to familiarize the students in handling apparatus essential to chemical and physical experimentation.

A. Carosella, O.P. moderator. 'iir if' llli MES Ui ill2 Members of the Class of i942 have completed their first year as upper- classmen. For them this has been a year of accomplishments. During the entire year the juniors under the guidance of their moderator, the Rev. Charles Carosella, OP., have gained honors for their class and for the school. Many members of the class distinguished themselves in athletics, scholar- ship, and in the various school and social activities. Shortly after the opening of the school term the juniors elected Donald Dillon president of their class, Bill Buckingham, vice-president, Jim Kilgallon, secretary, Bill Brady, treasurer, and John Maher, sergeant-at-arms. Scholarship among the juniors has been outstanding. They were represented on the l-lonor Roll by Joseph Krickl, J. Donal O'Bryan, and Mike Kerwin. Almost a score of juniors merited honorable mention. The Class of '42 has played an important part in athletics. Winning major letters for football were: Jim Kilgallon, next year's captain, Bill Brady, Don Dillon, Angelo Provenzano, Harry l-larris, Maurie White, Bill Ostrander, Henry Angsten, and Charlie Singer. ln basketball Bill Griffin, Don Dillon, Angela Provenzano, and Dick Bennett received minor letters, Griffin merited his for playing on the heavyweight sauad. Since no juniors received major F's for basketball, Coach Lawless has decided to wait until next year to elect a captain. Bob Jarka was unanimously chosen to lead the i942 swimming tearn. Other juniors who will help the Friars battle for their ninth Catholic League swimming championship are Pete Barrett and Don Svitak. Several others swim on the junior team. Bill Brady and Charlie Singer were members of the tennis team. The juniors claimed practically a clean sweep of honors in the eleventh annual Intramural Night staged in the gym Saturday evening, March 8th. Juniors reached the finals in swimming, ping pong singles and doubles, light- weight and heavyweight basketball, and loop tennis doubles matches. ln swimming l-lenry Venn, John Dullard, John Bastien, and John Markarian were victorious. Art Dalton and Bill McElligott captured the loop tennis doubles championship for the second consecutive year. Mike Romano won the ping pong singles trophy and then teamed up with Harry Harris to take the doubles crown. The lightweight basketball championship was won by the team composed of: captain Bill Schnell, Harry Harris, Denne Mahoney, Bob O'Donnell, Bill Murphy, and Tom Foley. They defeated a senior quintet, l2-lO. The heavyweight title was captured by the team Of: captain Al Lingle, Bill Walsh, Bill Murphy, Kenny Pinns, Bob Vaughan, John Markarian, and Bill Larkin. Lingle's basketeers defeated a rival junior outfit, l6-l2. ln the doubles bowling matches Al Lingle and George Hefner led the school, Bill Larkin was class singles champ.

The highlight of the day was a l72-yard hole-in-one by Bill Buckingham on the seventh hole. This was the first ace made in the history of the tournament. After weeks of battling, three juniors were victorious in the boxing finals. These champs were: Denny Mahoney, l35-lb. class, Bill Conrad, l45-lb., and Bill Walsh, heavyweight.

The juniors who attended the National Scholastic Press Association convention in Cleveland were Ted Colgan, John Clark, and Bob McAuliffe. Tom Conlon, Ted Colgan, Mike Healy, and Bill Buckingham have prepared themselves to uphold Fenwick's debating honors next year. The Discussion Club is made up largely ot juniors.

As upperclassmen the juniors have under- taken their first year ot social activity with great success. The Junior Prom, held in the Tower Ballroom of the Stevens l-lotel to the music of Johnny McPartland's orchestra, was one of the social highlights of the year.

Mc Gowan, O.P., moderator William Parker, vice president, Frank McDan old, secretary. lllf ELHES Ut fill Under the apt leadership of Rev. Edward M. McGowan, OP., moderator, the class of l943 is destined to a prosperous future. Although the sopho- more class is comparatively small, the members have already shown that they are capable of managing coming affairs with apparent ease. Even at the present, several "sophs" are holding stable positions in their chosen activities. Among the sophomores there is an unusual interest in the field of sports. At the end of the football season, minor letters were awarded to B. Bertucci, F. O'Malley, J. Higgins, C. Kelbe, and F. McDonald. From the same class moral support was provided by three new cheerleaders: W. Keegan, D. Dan- hauer, and R. Cross. For even a better view of the sophomores at their best, one only need to refer to the championship swimming team. R. Hoelzer, W. Hatch, and F. LeBrun were important factors in attaining Fenwick's fourth consecutive swimming title and each justly received a letter for his skill. The swimming trio of D. Fleming, F. Domke, and J. Costans won the 75-yard med- ley intramural award. On the same night D. Fleming was nosed out of the ping pong championship in a very exciting match. When the awards were given after the basketball season, F. McDonald and T. Tobin were presented with minor letters for their promising ability. An extremely large number of sophomores fought in the annual boxing tournament. T. Weger dupli- cated his victory march of last year and was again presented with a silver glove. J. Quirk and R. Richardson, both sophomores, were finalists in their division, but Quirk succumbed to the latter in a very close bout. ln other intramural sports, T. Tobin won the school and class bowling trophies while C. Curran took the sophomore golfing honors. The sopho- mores have, in fact, been enthusiasts both as competitive entrants and spectators. Aside from athletics, the second year men are equally prominent in their scholastic activities. The names of R, Goedert, T. Gavagan, J. Gunkel, W. Rosemeyer, and C. Vana have almost constantly appeared on the Honor Roll. At the same time, at least ten other names have spasmodically ap- peared on the honorable mention. C. Curran displayed his mystic ability on Amateur Night and was again awarded a first prize for his antics. E, Dunne, J. Reedy, and R. Goedert compose the three potential debaters of the class. During this last year fifteen sophomores played in the band, twenty-seven more are now members of The Wick staff, and at least six sophomores took an active part in the Christmas Basket Drive. The incessant assistance of Father McGowan and the class officers combined with the unity of the students renders the class of '43 an outstand- ing and progressive one. lt is most capable of fulfilling the requirements of advance responsibilities in years to come. l James Alsworth Henry Arend Bruno Bertucci Thomas Brady Vernon Breen Richard Brooker Joseph Brousil Leonard Burinski John Castans Donald Cloutier John Cody William Conlon Richard Corbett George Cormack Edward Costello Alfred County William Creedon Thomas Cullerton Charles Curran Thomas Cusack Daniel Danhauer William Dayton John DeCelle Edgar Degenhardt Harry Delaney Fred Domke George Doyle Harold Doyle Edward Dunne Robert Dwyer Page Forty-one Page Forty-two George Earle James Egan Richard Farrell Cyril Farwell Edward Fink Richard Finn Robert Fitz Gerald Fitzgerald John Fitzgerald Donald Fleming Robert Fleming Robert Foley Peter Franconi John Fredrick Arthur Frey James Froelich John Furlong Thomas Gavagan Lawrence Giese Raymond Gillen Robert Goedert Robert Gross James Gunkel Edward Hall Thomas Hannagan Herbert Harrison William Hatch Robert Havranek David Head William Hedberg Robert Helecek William Hessler John Higgins Richard Hoelzer Frank Hosticak James lmmerrnan Martin Jennings Raymond Jones James Kamis William Keegan George Kelble Donald Kenney James Kilbridge George Koss Charles Lanphier Rocco Laraia Francis Lel3run James Leyden Frank Lindholm John Lindsay Lawrence Lcbeck William Maloney Robert Marauardt Constantine Marsalli James Martin Daniel McCarthy George McCarthy Frank McDonald Edward McGah Francis McGovern John McGinn Edward McHugh George Mc:Kerr Merlin McNellis Jack Milder Gregory Moran Harry Moroni Bernard Mudra Daniel Mueller Thomas Mulholland Richard Mullen Frank Murnane John Nusko Robert O'Connor Roger O'Connor Francis O'MaIley William Parker Frank Pastorino Edward Pentis Richard Perry Robert Petsinger Norbert Pogorzelski Robert Poirier Edmund Quinn John Quirk Harold Raphael Robert Reagan James Reedy William Regan John Reil John Reilly Robert Richerson William Roche William Rosemeyer John Sebastian John Shannon David Sims Alfred Smith Dale Smith Gerard Spahn John Stava John Strnad Philip Suess Joseph Sullivan Robert Teichen Thomas Tobin George Vana Thomas Venn Thomas Weger James West George Wilson l-larry Worthington Page Forty-three Page Forty-four FRESHMAN CLASS OFFICERS Thomas Murtaugh, pres- ident, Richard Cronin vice-president, J a m e s Walsh, treasurer, Rev, J. A. Quinn, O.P., moder- atorg Mark Angsten, sec retary. llli ElllSS Ui lil A group of l48 boys entered Fenwick High School on Sept. 4, l94O, to form the freshman class. After a week or two of typical greenness they became normal Fenwick students and started out on their first year of high school. Hardly had they settled down when a public proclamation duly informed them of an initiation by their dignified upperclassmen, the sophomores. As a result the following two months saw freshmen wearing bow ties, entering the school by the rear door, or singing the school song. All violaters were dealt with by the sophomore court. Footballlwas the first athletic activity the freshmen undertook. The frosh team had a fairly successful season, winning three of the four games. The most promising players were Tom Murtaugh, Richard Cronin, Nick A. Collias, Edward Tracy, and James Murray. Basketball was next and here, too, the freshmen made an impressive showing. James Murray won a minor letter for lightweight basketball, while Edward Tracy was a frequent substi- tute. ln bantam and flyweight basketball, shields were awarded to Richard Cronin, Raymond Dalton, Nick J. Collias, and Jim Walsh. Assurances of additional swimming titles were given by many frosh mermen, especially Tony l-lruska, Peter Brown, and Dan Ceski. Intramural sports evidenced future leaders. The freshman golf title was won by James Dougherty, the freshman ping pong title by John Majew- ski, passing by Dan Sullivan, bowling by Raymond McMahon. The school champion in the free throw tournament was Albert Siska, a freshman. In boxing Dan Ceski was the victor over Tom Tierney in a spir- ited fight for the 90 lb. championship of the school. However, a class outstanding in sports is by no means necessarily slack in scholastics. This was proven by Henry Harkensee and William Smith who placed frequently on the Honor Roll. ln other activities, whether competitive or not, the class of '44 was equally fresh and vigorous. They were well represented at the football and basketball games, and many of the musically inclined gave their services to the band. The annual freshman paper was again published this year. The editor-in-chief was William Cahill, while Edward Kline took care of the car- toons. Another freshman who was outstanding in journalism is Arthur Kaindl, who was appointed circulation manager of The Vlfick. This position is usually given to a junior. ln the drive for "New World" subscriptions conducted by The Most Rev. Archbishop Samuel A. Stritch, D.D., the fresh- man class led all other classes in the number of subscriptions obtained. Also, the prize for the individual student earning the most subscriptions in the school was awarded to Donald O'Sullivan. On March 24, l94l, the Moderator Rev. J. A. Quinn, OP., conducted the election of class officers. The students chosen to lead the class were Tom Murtaugh, president, Richard Cronin, vice-president, Mark Angsten, secretary, and James Walsh, treasurer. TOP ROW-J. Michael Collins, N. A. Collias, N.

The team was composed mostly of juniors who were green and untried, but who proved their worth by leading the team in scor- ing. Captain Ned Maloney was chosen as one of the best tackles in the city while center Bob Allen and halfback Ray O'Brien each received honorable mention. Junior fullback Angelo Provenzano led the team in scoring with 45 points.

The crowd was so excited that a riot almost broke out, but the two spirited schools quickly forgot the game and dismissed. Doherty again led the attack. Fenwick 3l St. Mel 20 For the second time the Black and White dropped in defeat the defiant St. Mel five. This time much more easily, 3l-20. Doherty untimed his pace as leading scorer with eleven points. ln this game Captain Jack Pay- ette received a severe gash over his right eye and several stitches were re- quired to close it. lt's on its way Talking things over If may be anybody's ball Page Sixty-two ,mfmim.zz,z0,iz ' ' ST. GEORGE TOU RNAMENT Returning to St. George as defending champions in the annual pre- season tourney the Friar quintet won three hard-fought contests before los- ing in the finals to Catholic High of Joliet. The first game was a close battle in which Fenwick defeated St. Michael, 32-27. Lewis Holy Name proved easy victims of the Black and White basketmen by a score of 47-20. ln the semi-final game against Mt. Carmel the result was not decided until Bill Doherty, with four seconds left to play, sunk a push shot for the winning margin. The score was 30-28. The contest for the championship was a wild shooting spree with neither side sinking many baskets. Joliet dropped enough shots for a 26-20 victory. Bill Doherty was named all-tournament. Fenwick 26 Leo 48 In the first league game of the season the Fenwick five met a fierce Leo quintet, a team which was to go on through the season to win the National League championship, the Friars fought all the way but were downed, 48-26. The Black and Orange led all the way being paced by Kelly and Baranowski, and the Fenwick five never came close. O'Connell and Payette shared scor- ing honars for Fenwick. Fenwick 38 De La Salle 33 ln a terrific second half attack the Fenwick quintet knocked off the tall, powerful De La Salle squad. The Tigers led going into the second period, and the game looked hopeless then. Jack Payette returned to his former scoring pace to help the Friars gain a .500 rating in league competition. Aquinas feeds one to the basket Fenwick, the host, after the game Page Sixty-three To the victor go the spoils lt's on the way-maybe? Page Sixty-four Fenwick 35 Loyola 27 Clicking consistently against their arch-rivals from the north side, the Black and White displayed the type of ball that had been long hoped for from them. The Loyolans were a constant threat main- ly through the efforts of their sharpshooter Francis Dee. Both he and Captain Payette were display- ing marvelous ability with push-shots and Payette finally came out on top with l9 points. Fenwick 24 Joliet 30 After journeying out to Joliet in the worst storm of the entire winter, the Friars absorbed their second licking from the Joliet boys. The other time was in the finals of the St. George tourney. Fenwick 40 St. Rita 27 Showing the old "zip" of a typical Fenwick team, the Friars walked over the mediocre Red and Blue of St. Rita. The Mustangs were very tall, but seemed awkward, and this proved a big factor in eyeing victory. Again Captain Jack Payette led the scoring with 8 baskets. Fenwick 3l Mt. Carmel 33 In the final game of the first half of the cage season the Black and White lost a thriller to the Carmel Caravan. The game was won in the final seconds with a push-shot by their center, Hacker. Even in defeat the Friars had no reason to bow their heads. Captain Payette and Bill Doherty with lO apiece shone for the Black and White. Fenwick 34 St. Michael 42 After facing the Warriors of Michael all the way to a 34-34 tie at the end of the regulation time, the Friars' attack bogged down in overtime, and they did not score in the 3-minutes-extra pe- riod. Doherty and Payette with l2 and ll points respectively, forced the loser's attack. Fenwick 2l St. Ignatius 32 In the throes of a losing streak the Friars ab- sorbed another defeat, this time at the hands of Ignatius basketeers. Payette's activity was the only heartening sight of the evening. Fenwick i5 Leo 24 The "Mighty Lions" of Leo, still championship bound, rolled over the Friars in their stiffest game of the season. The two teams battled for every point they earned and the crowd gave them both a tremendous ovation when they left the battle ground. The outstanding feature of the night was the amazing performance of a new Friar, center Bill Griffin. Fenwick 35 De La Salle 46 The Friars still suffering from their losing streak, contracted their fifth straight beating. The Friars were behind from the start, and never came near overtaking the Tigers. Captain Pay- ette led the scoring with l9 points. Fenwick 34 Loyola 33 In this game, although leading all the way, the Black and White were barely able to eke out a last minute victory by the margin of one point. Once again Payette and Dee were the chief rivals in scoring, but again Payette won. Loyola, coming up fast the entire second half, was only prevented from victory by the sterling defensive play of Aamodt ancl O'Connell. Fenwick 48 Aquinas 45 The Friars, in a vengeful mood and egged on by the incentive of a winner's plaque, defeated a strong Aquinas team from Columbus, Ohio. The total score was one of the highest ever rolled up at Fenwick. Captain Payette again broke his own record and set another new school record with 26 points. Fenwick 40 Joliet 32 The Friars still smarting from two ,previous de- feats at the hands of the downstaters, whipped them decisively. The Brown and White never came close to overtaking the Friars once they man- aged to grab the lead. Jack Payette with l5 points led the newly revived Fenwick attack. Fenwick 36 St. Rita 25 Fenwick's basketmen trounced the St. Rita Mustangs with a fierce offensive. l-lolding a com- fortable lead all the way, the Friars did not let up till the final gun. Ever reliable Payette garnered l7 points to take over the lead in the Catholic League scoring race. Fenwick 33 Mt. Carmel 3l Caravan travels to Fenwick to conclude year- round rivalry. In the first half the game was rather slow with Fenwick leading at the half-time. Both teams came back with furious attacks in the third and fourth periods. Carmel tied the game in final minutes, but Captain Payette sank a long- shot from the middle of the floor to win. The victory clinched second place for the Friars in the final league standings. Fenwick 44 St. Philip 42 In the last game of the season the Friars were tops. Taking the lead early and holding it all the way, they floored the highly esteemed Philip five of the north section. Graduating Friars-Aamodt, Moysey, Brady, Doherty, and Captain Payette-all played a whale of a game and left the ranks of Fenwick athletes as truly representative of the school.

Led by such stal- warts as Don Dillon, Tom Tobin, and Angelo Provenzano the lights furnished stiff opposition for every team in the Catholic league. During the first half of the Catholic league round the Friars could do no better than finish at the bottom of the heap, but when the entire season was over they had climbed up to fifth place in the league standings. ln the annual Christmas tourney here at Fenwick the Friars were elim- inated in the first round by St. Michael, who later climbed to the final round.

Uiillllillli EHIMIUIUNE Along with their captain, Bill Brown, the swimming team began practicing Monday, November l8, l94O. After two months of getting into shape, the mermen competed in their first league meet January I8 against Loyola. This meet gave Coach Dick Thompson a real chance to look over his material. Besides Bill Brown other returning lettermen were: Bob Thomas, Jim Burke, Jack McGowan, Bill Cullerton, Bill O'Leary, Ray Collins, and Dick Buckingham. The outstand- ing performer of the meet was Bill Hatch, a sophomore. Next, after many weeks of hard training, the Friars ran up against their enemies from Park Ridge-Maine. These fellows are one of the outstand- ing squads in the country. Fenwick lost by a score of 44 points to 22. The only events that Fenwick capped were the 50 yard free style and the medley, Morton was taken easily. lt seemed as if Fenwick's swimmers were seeking revenge after their previous defeat, for they won almost every event. -SCHEDULE- FEBRUARY 28--- .--...---.-------- ----- S ullivan at Fenwick MARCH 4--- ---- -. ---------- ---- M oine at Fenwick MARCH ll--- ---- Fenwick at Austin MARCH l8--- -.-- Austin at Fenwick MARCH 28--- ---Fenwick at Sullivan APRIL 4--- ---- Loyola at Fenwick APRIL 8--- ---Fenwick at Morton APRIL l5--- ---------.--------.------- Fenwick at Loyola APRIL l8--- -------------------------- Fenwick at Roosevelt APRIL 26-27-U ----Catholic League Championship Meet at Loyola Two meets with Austin, the first at Fenwick, resulted in two wins for Fenwick. But, nevertheless, the school spirit prevailed throughout. ln both meets going into the last event the score was tied, but each time the Black and White medley team squeezed out the margin ot victory. A new prospect came into the limelight in junior Bob Jarka, he took a first in both of the meets and gove Bill Brown quite a race for speed honors. No more meets were scheduled for the next few weeks, and so Coach Thompson let the boys rest. Then the Friars met their Chicago public school rival, Sullivan, and in two meets managed to win both. The first was raced in our pool, the second in Sullivan's. After the latter meet a party was held for the mermen. The next meet was with our stitfest Catholic League rival, Loyola, but the Black and White took every event except diving. The meet was a "walk- away." No further meets were scheduled for the remaining weeks because all was made ready tor the annual Catholic League championship meet that was to be held in the Loyola pool on April 26-27. Next year's captain Ready for the gun Thomas braves still of pool Burke stands alone in the deep Brown slides through to victory Buckingham makes a turn Maine and Fenwick meet Page Seventy-two Ready, set. . . l Uowbaalafifzegecat Four 'schools were entered in the meet: Loyola, Leo, St. Philip, and Fenwick. ln the preliminary trials Fenwick qualified l5, St. Philip 8, Loyola 6, and Leo 3. Bill Brown broke the Catholic League 50 yard free style record, and tied the mark in the lOO yard free style. ln the finals Fenwick won the relay event with a team made up of Bill Cullerton, Jim Burke, Ray Collins, and Jack McGowan. Bob Thomas won the break-stroke, and Pete Bar- rett, a junior, was third. Bill Brown was first in the free style, Bob Jarka, second, and Bill O'Leary was fourth. Bill Hatch was first, Frank LeBrun, second, and Bob Svitak was fourth in the 50 yard break-stroke. Dick Hoelzer won the lOO yard free style, and Bill Brown was second with Jack McGow- an third. Diving was won by Ray of Loyola, LeBrun of Fenwick was second, and Bucking- ham of Fenwick was third. The medley team, which had set an unofficial record on Friday night, failed to do so Sunday, but won, never- theless. lt was made up of Brown, Thomas, and Jarka. Senior letter winners are: Captain Bill Brown, winning his third major, Bob Thomas and Jack McGowan, their second majors, Ray Collins, Dick Buckingham, and Jim Burke, their first letters. Robert Jarka, ju- nior ond captain-elect, won a major, as did Bill Hatch, sophomore. Frank LeBrun and Dick Hoelzer both re- ceived minors for their excellent swimming in the league finals. Bill Keane, Bill O'Leary, and Bill Cullerton came close to winning letters, but due to in- sufficient points they did not receive them. Other senior swimmers were Leland Mc- Cabe and Anton Schorsch, both of these boys were out for their first year. Last but not least added honors must be given to Coach Thompson for his unending efforts in building a championship team. Ever since coming to Fenwick, Dick has done nothing but that, and has piled up an almost untouchable record of achievements. llllllllll ElllllllllllE lllll From the juniors Dick Thompson draws his championship teams year after year. They practice along with seniors and receive coaching, so that in a year or two or three they are good enough for the senior squad. This year's list is long, which means that many came to practice regu- larly, but a few of the outstanding swimmers are mentioned along with their abilities and possibilities. Bill Brean, Whitey Ruska, and Dan Ceski were the three most promis- ing freshmen of the year. Dick Hoelzer, Frank LeBrun, and Bill Regan are the sophomores who stuck it out. Pete Barrett, Jerry Havlis, Bob Svitak, Ray Kelleher, and Bill Cotter are the junior class swimmers. The juniors have their meets along with the seniors, junior and senior events alternating. This year the juniors had a mediocre season. In the junior back-stroke, Frank LeBrun and Dick Hoelzer won points in the Catholic League meet. Bill Brean, a wild freshman, won the Austin 200 yard free style event-quite an achievement for a first year man. Little Dan Ceski's voice was the bane of the senior swimmers. His high soprano is hard on the ears, especially in the echo-full pool, and all the team is wait- ing for his voice to change. Jerry Havlis and Pete Barrett seemed scheduled to take over the breast- stroke next season by reason of merit and elimination. Dick Hoelzer, star of the team, almost broke the junior record for the IOO yard free style. His best time for that event was IZOI. Frank LeBrun placed second in back- stroke and third in diving at the Catholic League meet. He is sure of a place on next year's senior squad. -SCHEDULE- FEBRUARY 28 ..... ................. ....

Ellllill Elllli llllllllllllilll Over 250 students were entered in the boxing tourneys this year, the eleventh annual event, and they were "knocked" down to sixteen finalists in eight weights. When Coach Lawless was sick this winter, Dan O'Brien took over the job of referee and timekeeper for the preliminary bouts, a job which "Tony" had done for the last eleven years. The funniest fight this year was between Elmer Sagehorn and "Hanky" Gianatosio. On top of having a vertical roundhouse swing that put him off balance each time he used it, Sagehorn's pants kept slipping, causing him to hitch them up after every other punch. The most fist-pounds were used in the Bill Walsh-"Ward" Keegan fight. ln round one, Walsh dazed Keegan several times, round two, Keegan leveled Walsh, round three, with both very tired, Walsh had a slight edge and won the decision. Bill Fitzsimmons, senior, had his nose broken in the fight, and Phil Cag- ney's nose was bent slightly. The finals were held Friday night, April 4. As the band started to play the Star Spangled Banner, all the lights in the gymnasium were turned out and a spotlight flashed on an ascending flag. Father Simones, band mod- erator, saved a complete torture of the National Anthem, by quickly turning on a set of lights and giving the band a chance to read its music. ln the preliminaries, the results were: ll5 lb., Merle McNellis over Danny Danhauer, l25 lb., D, Fleming over Ben Goodall, l25 lb., Dick Ben- nett over R. O'Connor, l35 lb., Tom Culligan over Bob Cummins, l35 lb., J. Murray over Frank McGowan, l45 lb., Dick McNichols over Ray O'Brien. Between the preliminary bouts and the finals, Jack Payette received the most valuable player award for the heavyweights, and Dan Dillon received the most valuable player award for the lights. Only two of last year's finalists returned this year-as opponents, Carm Allesio and Tom Weger. ln the 90 lb. weight Dan Ceski outpounded Tommy Tierney for a deci- sion. These two paperweights did a lot of hard punching, something seldom seen in this weight. H l Exciting moments between bells 0 Bob Richerson beat Jack Quirk in a close bout, which for a time looked like Quirk's. For the round which was cut short, Carm Allesio and Tom Weger toed4each giving and taking equally. The second round was the same, but in the third Weger bested Alle- sio and won. Weger received a bloody nose and Carm got a beautiful black eye. They fought at l l5 lbs. Bob Cooney, after failing to use his superi- or reach for two rounds, finally did and won a close decision from Jim Courtney. Cooney's uncle afterwards presented him with a five dollar bill for winning the fight. Theirs was the l25 lb. class. Denny Mahoney won a tough one from Ray Kelleher in the l35 lb. division. Kelleher took the defensive from the start, blocking most of Mahoney's punches, but not landing enough himself to win. Bob Conrad pummelled Bob Doucette for a win in the l45 lb. class. Although he took a rather severe beating, Doucette gave Con- rad a few things to remember. ln the l55 lb class Dick Buckingham out- hit Bob Callahan to win a slight edge and a decision. The heavyweight bout was the closest of all. ln the first round it looked as if Walsh would be the lamb, Allen the butcher, but by being exceedingly aggressive "Tiger" Walsh came back in the second and third rounds to out- point Bob and to win a very close decision. Tuffy Griffiths and Al Keegan took turns mph refereeing the bouts. Dwyer Sackley was the timekeeper. The judges were Mr. Griffiths, Mr. Keegan, and Mr. Al Kline. The announc- er was Tom Morrisey. Seconds were: Dick Leahy, Moon Mullens, Jack Higgins, and Ward Keegan, and the ushers were the senior monogram men. The winners received silver gloves with raised "F's" in the palm of the glove, and the losers got the same award minus the "F" But, as Mr. Morrisey the announcer said, neither can be called winner, neither loser, but both champions. "THAT'S A ROUND!" By Jack Jones, '41 A bell is rung, and out they come With fists to flay and pound. They spar a while, then comes a voice "Break up, boys, that's a round." Again it rings, and this time They come with speed unbound. They pound and fall, cnd then through all "All right, boys, that's o round," 1 The fighters know there's not much time To win, so out they'll dart. Their seconds out, they're set to go. The third's about to start. Once more it rings, they're tired, it's true, But they'll fight 'til one has found l-le can no longer stand to hear "That's all, boys, that's a round." -Reprinted from The Wick.

This season's captain-elect Dick Murphy was not able to repeat this year due to a sudden ailment which has cancelled his track days until the near future. Coach Lawless named Chuck Brady to fill his place. Last year at the Catholic League meet Roy O'Brien showed great ability as a sprinter and as a relay man. The leading members of the team this year are: O'Brien, Brady, Sam Johnson, H. Worthington, M. McNellis, J. Light- ner, B. Hatch, and R. Foley. -SCHEDULE- MAY l-4 .... ................ ............

Catholic League Championship Elllfiii lillllll It happened! The first hole-in-one in the history of Fenwick's annual intramural golf tournament was made by Bill Buckingham, a junior, on the seventh hole at Midwest Golf Course. The hole is l35 yards long. There was a tie for first place between Maurie White, the junior champ, and Ken Pinns, the senior leader, because both came in with hot 8O's. After a couple of weeks Pinns won the playoff with 77 to White's 83 after l8 holes. Pinns' sub-par golf tied the Fenwick tourney record established last year by Bill Riley. The sophomore champion was Charlie Curran who shot a 9l. J. Doherty received the freshman award for his 89. The tennis squad paced by Jim Burke and Chuck Singer, singles, and Jack Radke and Ray O'Connell, doubles, fought through a hard schedule and ended the season with an 8-7 victory over Loyola in the League Champion- ship Matches.

Page Seventy-seven lllllllllllllll-llE ln order to enable all students to take part in athletics Fenwick hos instituted a cam- paign of intramural sports. The athletic department has laid out a plan whereby every student can find some form of athletics which he likes. These intramural activities are without peer in any high school in the coun- fry. VOLLEYBALL The volleyball tournament was run off in the gym classes. A team composed of seniors from the l:45 class emerged victorious over a field of 59 teams numbering 423 boys. The members of the winning team were given gold medals on black and white ribbons. PASSING The passing tourney took place at the same time the volleyball tournament was on. L. Terlizzi, a junior, was judged to be the most accurate passer of the 267 boys who entered the contest. Other winners were: Bob Cooney, Bob Allen, and several underclassmen. BASKETBALL When the Christmas vacation was over intramural basketball was begun. Every re- ligion class was allowed to enter two teams- one heavyweight and one lightweight-ao cording to their weights. Twenty teams of T84 boys entered the lightweight tournament. l29 fellows composing l4 teams entered the big battle. Both championships were played off on Intramural Night, March l8. Teams representing junior religion classes won both championships. FREE THROW The free throw tournament was held during the gym classes with the finals on Intramural Night. A Siska, a freshman, won over 225 other contestants. PING PONG During the lunch periods the exciting ping pong tourney was run off under the super- 'I-Juniors capture loop tennisg 2-Just a short one: 3-Victors in heavyweight bnsketballp 4-Passing to championship, 5-Going for a low one: 6-Doubling at ping pongg 7-Prizes galore: 8-Little boys win over 'I9 teams: 9-Soph bowls over competition.

BOWLING The Knights of Columbus Clubhouse was the scene of the second bowling tourney. Tom Tobin, o sophomore, won out over 97 other boys and was crowned singles champ. Two juniors, A. Lingle and George l-lefner, won the doubles championship. A total of 3l teams signed up for this contest. SWIMMING One hundred eighty-nine boys took part in the swimming contest. The following events were held: 25 and 50 yard free style, 25 yard back and breast-stroke, medley, relay, and diving. The juniors took most of the prizes in this contest. The outstanding performer was Hank Venn, a junior, who placed first in three events. LOOP TENNIS I Loop tennis, a sport which is only in its second year at Fenwick, attracted a large number of entrants. Bob Doucette, a senior, won the singles medal, while Bill McElligott and Art Dalton, both juniors, won the doubles championship. Every year one night is set aside as Intra- mural Night, This year it fell on Saturday, March 8. The finals of the light and heavy- weight basketball tourney, free throw contest, ping pong, swimming, and loop tennis are run off on this night. The big event of the eve- ning is the awarding of the various trophies and medals to the champions. Later cn in the year many other tournaments are held, such as handball, baseball, and track. In all cases medals are given to the school champs, 'I-Loop tennis thrills intramural crowd: 2-He wins on free throws: 3-Trophies change handsp 4-Makes clean sweep in ping pong: 5-Baseball swings into action, 6-Hitting it up.

Here are organizations where he may learn more about the arts of writing, speaking, and music and thus fit himself for a more enjoyable use of leisure time. The Social Spread presents a comprehensive view of these activities as well as of the social affairs of the students and their parents. rf" X 1 lg., !'w VH x I C k- Zi-'LW n'1'7Q, S?

Adviser IIIIEIIIIIIIHE The chief aim of the Blackfriars staff this year has been to present a better yearbook than ever before. For the first time in the ten-year history of the an- nual, the sophomores have individual pictures. In previous years only seniors and juniors received them. Another first for the present issue is the autographed senior pictures. Work was begun late in October to prepare the seniors for the task of issu- ing the annual. Weekly meetings were held under the direction of Reverend Edward C. Lillie, O.P., until late in No- vember, when the staff was announced and actual work begun. Those chosen to head the various staffs were: George Keller, editor-in-chief, Joseph O'Keefe, personali- ties editor, Joseph Anlauf, sports editor, and John Tierney, activities editor. John Westcnhaver was assigned the difficult job of getting action pictures of the various sports. To further prepare them for their task Father Lillie and four representatives of the annual attended the National Scholastic Press Association convention in Cleveland from November 28-30. They were Jo- seph Anlauf, John Tierney, George Kel- ler, and Richard Buckingham. George Keller and John Twomey were present at the Catholic Press convention in Milwau- kee during October. The system, begun last year, of pur- chasing annuals by the installment plan, was continued this year. Students, by making an initial payment of fifty cents, could pay the remainder in small amounts. This system was found very successful last year because it made the purchase of an annual less of a burden for the student. During the two weeks preceding Easter vacation the business staff con- ducted an extensive campaign to obtain subscriptions. Down payments on more than 370 annuals were obtained, Because of his many pressing duties Father Quinn was forced to retire this year as moderator of the business staff. Father Lillie, editing moderator, took over the business staff. Last year for the second consecutive year the Blackfriars was submitted to the National Scholastic Press Association for judging and again received a First Class rating.

George Keller and John Two- mey went to the Catholic Scho- lastic Press Association Congress October 11-13 in Milwaukee. Juniors Prepared During the first semester Fa- ther Yan ltooy conducted a jour- nalism class for juniors who vol- unteered and had a "BU average in English. This course, which prepares the members of the next year's staff for their duties, takes the place of junior English. Con- tracts consisting of a full-size XVick page properly written and edited were required of all junior journalists. Donate Typewriter With part of' the proceeds of the Junior Prom the juniors pur- chased a typewriter and pre- sented it to the XVick staff.

RATES SCHOOL PAPER ALL-AMERICAN CATHOLIC PRESS ALSO GIVES WICK HIGHEST HONORS The National Scholastic Press Association awarded the All- American newspaper rating to The Wick for its first semester publications, April 23, 1041. All- Catholic rating for both semes- ters last year was also given to the school newspaper by the Catholic Scholastic Press Associa- tion earlier in the year. ln the awarding of the All- American rank, the highest given by the association, such items as coverage, balance, treatment of news, life, features editing, head- lines, sports coverage, printing, leads, interviews, speech reports, proof-reading, organization, copy- reading, typography, and origi- nality are duly considered. Third All-American In winning this highest rating for the third time The Wick gar- nered 1200 out of 1275 possible points though only 1000 were needed. Of its 24 sections, 9 were given a superior rating, 12 were excellent, and 3 very good. This staff, receiving its sec- ond All-American classification, was mentioned in the annual newspaper scoreboard of the N.S.P.A. It was stated that the workmanship was of a profes- sional caliber and the staff knew its job and did it well. The paper was said to have a very definite personality, which was alert, pleasing, and gave evidence of much painstaking work. The Wick is judged in the class of boys, high schools with an en- rollment of 500-900 and issued monthly. ai 1 uc Ay SSN ici?-6-2 22, . 3 'll iw, - sits- WJV, ir ffwi X. ,' - .Kei Y scnoor - .,,..

Page Eighty-five lllllllllli llllllllfl ln the daily life of every Fenwick student religious activities play a major role. The regular school schedule in- cludes daily classes in religion, daily Mass in the chapel and in the gymna- sium on First Friday, Benediction every Friday afternoon, and participation in the annual retreat. Extra-curricular religious activities consist of the Discussion Club, the Serv- ers' Club, and attendance at the weekly Cisco meetings. Of course, the most important phase of religious training is the atmosphere which pervades the school. Because all classes are taught by religious, the student is in a Catholic surrounding and learns the Church's teaching on modern subjects. REV. M. M. BARRON, O.P Director REV. LEO M. SHEA, O.P., S.T.Lr. Retreat Master Page Eighty-six Reheaj One of the most important religious projects of the past year was the annual retreat, conducted this year on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, November l8, l9, and 20, under the direction of Rev. Leo M. Shea, O.P, Father Shea also gave the Fenwick retreat in l932. The usual schedule was followed this year. It consisted of Mass and Com- munion in the morning, followed by three conferences with meditation and prayer between each one. Confessions were heard between each conference and after the last one. Father Shea divided his talks into three groups-relations of the student to the home, to the school, and to the Church-and discussed each on a sep- arate day. Between conferences the students made a brief outline of the pre- ceding conference to enable them to re- call the main features of the lecture. Eflilltllg Elllll The Servers' Club is now in its second year under the direction of Rev. Mark M. Barron, O.P. lt was established last year by Father Barron and Father Louis Nugent for the purpose of educating acolytes in the Dominican rite and Dominican liturgy. The duties of the club are essentially religious. The activities include the serving at daily Mass in the school chapel and at the weekly Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament each Friday afternoon in the school gymnasium. They are likewise called upon to render their serv- ices whenever there is a Solemn Requiem Mass for the deceased relatives of the faculty or students. Frequent meetings are held to discuss plans for the future, to impart instructions, and to announce future assignments. Father Barron makes the appointments, and John O'Donnell sees that each boy is prepared and ready to serve at the time appointed. The Sacristan this year is John West- enhaver. l-lis duties consist of decorating and preparing the altar for Mass and Benediction.

Page Eighty-seven UlEEUEElUll lllll This year marks the second since the organization of the St. Thomas Aquinas Discussion Club. The club was started in March of last year at the request of several Confraternity members and was continued this year be- cause of many more requests. Its moderator is Rev. Mark Barron, OP., and its purpose is to promote Catholic Action in general and especially to give students a chance to express their views on current Catholic topics. Most of the subjects discussed this year pertained to those questions brought up at the Saturday Cisca meetings. During the year the following topics were treated: "A Just and Living Wage for Labor," "Slavery-Right or Wrong," and "The Negro Problem in This Country." At the beginning of the year meetings of the Discussion Club were held on Wednesday afternoon for the juniors and seniors and on Thursday eve- ning for the freshmen and sophomores. l-lowever, later on it was found to be more desirable to discontinue the Thursday evening meetings and have all the members come on Wednesday. Toward the end of the year Father Barron appointed Guy Munger discussion leader. lt was up to him to state the topic for discussion and see that the meeting ran smoothly. The Aquinas Discussion Club is a volunteer organization, Only those students who are really interested in the Confraternity and Cisca are mem- bers. For this reason all the members are enthusiastic about the club and attend regularly. Because of the club they are better able to talk on cur- rent Catholic issues both at the Cisca meetings and among themselves. WZ? . .,,. The temporary chairman for this meeting of the Discussion Club is Guy Munger. lt is the duty of the chairman to lead and direct the discussion.

SlMl3USlllll Sf-Www Fenwick was host again this year, on March 7, to six students of Chicago's Catholic high schools who, because of their speaking ability, were chosen to speak on the Life and Works of St. Thomas Aquinas. Eliminations to select the best speeches were conducted at Fenwick, Alvernia, and Aquinas on Sunday and Monday, March 2 and 3. Previously at Fenwick there was a contest to select the boy to represent our school in the semi-finals. The contestants were: John Twomey, John Tierney, Guy Munger, Joseph Murnane, Robert Doucette, Richard Buckingham, and John Kellyiseniors, and J. Donal O'Bryan and John Lightner-juniors. John Twomey won. The Most Reverend Bernard J. Sheil, DD., presided on this occasion, Father Kelleher gave the opening welcome to the parents and friends. Father Barron then took over as master of ceremonies. Loretta Price of Alvernia, speaking on "St. Thomas Today," won first prize among the girls, and Edward Egan of St. Rita took first honors among the boys. Fenwick was very proud to have John Twomey take second place, Al Sommer of Loyola placed third. Second of the girls was Marilyn McGuire of St. Thomas the Apostle, and Muriel Spengler of Mount St. Mary was third. As a fitting climax to the occasion, Bishop Sheil presented the six silver cups and addressed the assembly on the value of using Catholic education. Music for this, as at other school events, was furnished by the Fenwick band. FINALISTS ALVERNIA ................ ............ ...... I. O RETTA PRICE ST. THOMAS APOSTLE .... ..,.

Conway, O.P., Guy Munger, John Kelly, John Tierney, Chicago Catholic Debate Trophy, Hennepin Shield Trophy, Winona College Trophy. This year has been, perhaps, the most successful in the history of the Fenwick Debating Society. The school teams, while winning three major tournaments, participated in over one hundred debotes with twenty schools representing four different states. This is the fifth year in which Fenwick debaters have met outside schools in forensic competition. During these five years Rev. George G. Conway, O.P., has coached his teams to two mid- west Catholic debating championships and numerous other city-wide titles. The mainstays of this year's championship organization were John Kelly and Guy Munger on the affirmative side, John Tierney and John Two- mey for the negative. These teams, made up entirely of seniors, brought Fenwick its second midwest Catholic debating title, besides winning the city- wide Catholic League championship. The topic for debate this season was the national high school question, "Resolved: That the Power of the Federal Government Should Be lncreasedf' This question, one of popular interest and discussion, provided the teams with many different and engaging problems concerning the federal govern- ment. The society traveled to St, Mary's College, Winona, Minnesota, for the annual midwest Catholic debating tournament April i8 and l9, and took first place, Sixteen schools from four states were represented. The school was given a trophy symbolizing this achievement, while each of the members of the team was awarded a gold medal for his work. The Chicago Catholic League debating trophy was also awarded the school for its outstanding record of eleven wins and three losses in city com- petition. At the end of the league season Fenwick was far ahead of its Catholic rivals-St. George, St. Ignatius, St. Mel, De La Salle, St. Philip, St. Rita, and Mount Carmel. emajoa ' ' Following this victory the seniors ended their debating careers at Fen- wick by winning their third trophy of the year-the Hennepin Shield's Coun- cil tournament for the west side Catholic debating championship. The junior debating teams gained much valuable experience during the season by participating in numerous decision and non-decision debates in the Metropolitan League and in debates with juniors of other schools. The outstanding members of the junior squad were: M. Healy, W. Buckingham, T. Conlon, T. Colgan, J. Reedy and R. Goedert, sophomores, and J. Foley and G. Sweeney, freshmen. At the end of the year's work the senior squad and the above mentioned members of the junior squad-twelve in all-were given Catholic League debating pins. The Debating Union has been gaining rapidly in importance in the last five years because of the opportunities it offers the student for self-expres- sion and increased confidence in himself.

ElllllEllllE lillEllilS As in past years one of the activities of the St. Thomas Confraternity was the successful distribution of Christmas baskets to the poorer people of the West Side. This distribution was made under the personal direction of Rev. John M. Nugent, OP., who was assisted by a volunteer group of forty Fenwick students. Each basket given out to the needy consisted of an ample supply of canned goods, fresh vegetables, meat, and clothing. More than l2O of these baskets were distributed. "Much of the credit for the drive," said Father Nugent, "is due to the various St. Vincent de Paul Societies of the West Side parishes, to Father McGlynn, head of the Blessed Martin Center, and to Father Zanoni of San Callisto Parish. Without their cooperation in furnishing the names of the poor families the distribution would never have been successful." Although all the student body could not participate in the actual distri- bution of the baskets, they could contribute something to them. All the canned foods, clothing, and the money for the meat were obtained by volun- tary contributions from the student body. These donations were collected during the two weeks preceding Christmas by the volunteer students in their automobiles and were then sorted and put in the baskets. On December 2l, the Saturday before Christmas, the bushel baskets, overflowing with fresh meat, canned goods, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and candy, were given to the poor. Thirty students with twelve cars took part in the distribution. Some of the more active students who worked in the drive were: Joseph Murnane, John O'Donnell, John Twomey, William McGah, John Burke, Ri- chard Buckingham, George Keller, Robert Streuber, John Tierney, Guy Mun- ger, Connie Mulligan, James O'Keefe, George Hefner, and Henry Venn. llllllllllill llllllllll Sllllll JOSEPH ANLAUF-has spent his extra time during the past year working as sports editor for both The Wick and Black- friars.

GEORGE KELLER-along with maintaining a high scholastic average, merited the position of editor-in-chief of the Black- friars and first page editor of The Wick, GUY MUNGER-has been one of the most active students in school. Guy was a regular debater, associate editor of The Wick, a member of the band, and an officer in Cisco. JOHN TIERNEY-during the past year was a regular mem- ber of the debate squad, the copy editor of The Wick, and the activities editor of the Blackfriars.

This year it entered the Archdiocesan band contest in Class B on May l7. lt was one of three in its section to receive superior rating. This is due to a very great extent to the excellent leadership of the Director, Mr. John Sovinec. Mr. Sovinec has worked very hard with what he terms "good raw material," and last year whipped the band into such fine shape that it won superior rating in Class C. lFirst place, really, since no other band received a similar rating in that class.l Mr. Sovinec is also director of several other bands, principally the Chicago Bays' Club band, four time winner of the Chicago Tribune Music Festival at Soldiers' Field. A great deal of thanks is also owed to the Rev. J. A. Simones, O.P., mod- erator, tor he has worked tirelessly to advance the band in every way.

Some of it was used for new instruments: two Bly basses, a bassoon, an oboe, a bass clarinet, and a bass trombone. The membership has increased from thirty-nine in '39, to sixty-three in '4l. Father says that membership will never go over sixty-five. CRight now over IOQZ? of the students are in the band.l As before, the band played at most of the football and basketball games and at the boxing matches. The organization did a very nice job at the St. Thomas Symposium and, after a successful band concert, in which there were several auartettes, sextettes, and a baritone solo, the band played for the Mothers' Club.

Madrick, OP., moderator, has completed an active first year. At the first meeting of the organization, January 9, the twenty boys who expressed a desire to join the club elected as their officers: Richard Bucking- ham, president, Robert Buckingham, vice-president, John O'Donnell, secre- tary, Manus Munger, librarian, and Michael Kerwin, treasurer. Meetings of the club were held frequently through the year on Mon- days and Fridays. At these sessions the boys practiced sending and receiv- ing Morse code in preparation for obtaining a sender's license. Necessary items of equipment, including a large receiving and sending set, were given to the club by Father Kelleher. With this equipment, mem- bers of the club have been able to listen to foreign broadcasts from Great Britain, Spain, Mexico, and South America while practicing their sending and receiving in code. All the club's equipment has been installed in the tower in easy reach of the school roof where the aerial is located. Membership in the club was closed after the first few weeks so as to include only those who were actually interested in radio. Accordingly, strict rules were laid down as to attendance at meetings. ln the future the club hopes to expand into a regular federally licensed sending and receiving station operating on the wave bands assigned to amo- teur radio operators. A good start has been made in gathering together interested boys and in getting equipment. lllllllfllll llllll Variety is always the theme of the Amateur Night, presented in the school gymnasium this year on Friday night, December l9. Be- sides the usual variety of instrumental, vocal, and novelty acts, there were such unusual newcomers as the German choristers, the en- tire senior German class singing German folk songs, Jake Lightner and his dancing partner in a novel ballet, Bill Buckingham and his juniors in a surrealistic play, and Santa Claus, impersonated by Elmer Sagehorn, who gave out presents after the performances. The Amateur Night is presented every year by Father Malone's junior religion class to earn money for the missions. General chairman for the occasion was John Clark, Jim Gaskill was appointed master of ceremo- nies. Prizes consisted of twenty-one dollars, given to the winners of the three divisions- novelty, instrumental, and vocal. Five dollars was given to first place winner, and two dollars was awarded to second place winners. ln the novelties division first place was given to Chuck Curran and second place to Jim Collins. John Bastien took first place in the instrumental contest, and Tony Cihlar second. Ray McMahon was judged the best singer and Moose Marzicola second. Those participating in the contest were Bob Artz, John Bastien, James Prucha, Dan O'Connor, John Clark, Jack Milder, Tony Cihlar, Bob Dooley, and Tom Lang, instru- mentals, Jake Lightner and partner, Bill Buckingham and Company, Joe O'Keefe and Tom Allen, Dick Buckingham and Guy Mun- ger, Chuck Curran, Jack Markarian, and Jim Collins, novelties, l-larry Mcl-lale, l-larry Ry- an, German choristers, McMahon and l-losty, Leonard Bruno and Moose Marzicola, vocals.

Throughout the year numerous dances are held, at which the stu- dent can associate with other boys and girls of high school age. The first dance of the year was the Alumni Homecoming Dance, which took place in the Main Ballroom of the Graemere Hotel, Sunday, October 27, after a victorious Fenwick football team had routed St. Rita, 24-6. The dance was attended by members of the Alumni Association and Fenwick students. The Mothers' and Fathers' Clubs held their fifth annual dinner dance in the Boulevard Room of the Stevens Hotel, Saturday, December 7. They danced to the music of Bob Peary's French Casino orchestra. This dance has been held every year except one at the Boulevard Room. To honor the football team the Fathers' Club sponsored the Father and Son Football Banquet at the Terrace Casino of the Morrison Hotel, Thursday, December l2. Among the prominent speakers were Elmer Layden, Mal Edward, Paddy Driscoll, Warren Brown, Ed Cochran, John Carmichael, Quinn Ryan, and Jimmy Wilson. The Alumni had its second get-together of the year at the Grand Ball- room of the Lake Shore Club, Friday, December 27. Music for the Christ- mas formal was furnished by Art Wise, himself a Fenwick alumnus. The Grand Ballroom of the Lake Shore Club was also the scene of the annual Football Dance, Friday, January 3. This affair is sponsored every year by the senior class as a tribute to the members of the football team. Guy Claridge and his orchestra were selected to play for the occasion. ln- .4421 W4 12415 x ' ff.

The Confraternity of St. Thomas sponsored its first dance January 30, in the school gymnasium. It was a record dance, the records being furnished by Joe Anlauf and Bill Jeffrey. Because of the nature of the affair fresh- men were allowed to attend. lt was the only dance attended by frosh dur- ing the school year. Besides being the most economical dance of the year, it was also one of the most enjoyable. The largest crowd ever to attend a Fenwick dance-i 89 couples-were present at the Junior Prom, Tuesday, February ll, in the Tower Ballroom of the Stevens l-lotel. Jimmy McPartland's orchestra was chosen to furnish music for the dance. As at the football dance, no bids were sold in advance. Instead, tickets were distributed which were replaced by elaborate programs at the door. The programs had mirrored covers with a crest of the school on the front. The most gala of all social events during the past year was the "Fen- wick May Days" celebration, sponsored by the Mothers' and Fathers' Clubs, May l5, l6, and l7, in the school gymnasium. Numerous booths and games were open to the public. Chances on 5500 were sold in the weeks preceding the carnival. The climax of the social season for every Fenwick student and espe- cially the seniors is the Senior Prom. This dance was held at the Medinah Country Club, Tuesday, June lO. Art Wise and his orchestra were the band selected for the dinner dance. Page Ninety-nine llllllllllg Page One Hundred I i MRS. ROY E. CURRAN President MRS. WALTER R. COSTELLO ViceePresident MRS.

Atter Benediction there was an interesting program prepared by the chairmen tor the day. The tirst large affair given by the club was the fall card party, Friday evening, October l9. During the course ot the evening Father Connolly addressed the assembly. The titth annual dinner dance, sponsored jointly by the Mothers' and Fathers' Clubs, took place in the Boulevard Room ot the Stevens Hotel, Sat- urday, December 7. Music was turnished by Bob Peary's French Casino orchestra. Mothers' Club Guest Day was Friday, February 7. The purpose of the M . Dinner dance at Boulevard Room REV. R. B. CONNOLLY, 0-P- of Stevens Hotel Mothers get together for afternoon meeting Moderator iw 'Www ffi... faafwefffafa ' affair was to introduce other women to the activities of the Fenwick mothers. Refreshments were served by girls from Trinity, Siena, and Providence High Schools. The fathers and mothers sponsored a carnival in the school gymnasium on the evenings of May l5-l7. Mrs. Roy E. Curran and Mrs, Thomas P. Collins were the representatives of the Mothers' Club on the committee. As an expression of gratitude to the mothers, the senior class annually gives a spiritual bouquet to the Mothers' Club. This year 2994 l-loly Com- munions, 3203 Rosaries, 3996 Masses, and 7527 visits to the Blessed Sac- rament were given to the mothers. The climax of the school year for the mothers was the dinner given to the graduating class at the Lake Shore Club on June 5, by both the Mothers' and Fathers' Clubs. Mrs. William Thomas was chairman for the event. Special credit is due on this, the tenth anniversary of the Mothers' Club, to all those who have in any way contributed to its success, and in particular to its past presidents-Mrs. Frank J. Smith, Mrs. Edward J. Mulholland, Mrs. Clarence W. Marquardt, and Mrs. Thomas P. Collins. Page One Hundred One llllHlllSf llllll Socially and financially the year just concluded has been one of the most successful in the history of the Fathers' Club. This is due largely to the efficient efforts of the club's moderator, the Rev. Cyril M. Fisher, O.P., and its officers: James J. O'Keefe, president, Frank W. McLaughlin, vice- president, Edward Dunne, recording secretary, Ralph G. Ryan, financial sec- retary, and Warren Powers, treasurer. Father Fisher was appointed at the beginning of the year to succeed Father E. A. McDermott, who had been transferred from Fenwick in September. Monday is get-together night for the fathers. There is an opportunity to play cards, use the gymnasium and swimming pool, or just talk things over. A delightful evening is thus assured. Friendships, born of a common interest in their sons, are formed and solidified here. The first major event ofthe year was the Fathers' and Sons' first annual golf tournament. The competition at the Midwest Golf Club was won by the Kenneth Pinnses, senior and junior. Next on the calendar was Father and Son Night. Students and their dads had their first opportunity of the year to get together at Fenwick for an evening of entertainment. Besides several vaudeville acts, the event was highlighted by a visit from an agent of the F.B.l.-an actor who, disguised as a Russian communist professor, evoked the anger of the crowd with an anti-American demonstration before revealing his true identity. The Football Banquet drew the largest crowd in its nine-year history. Fathers, sons, and friends honoring the football team filled to capacity the Terrace Casino of the Morrison Hotel. Among the many notable speakers present were: Warren Brown, sports writer, who served as toastmaster, John P. Carmichael, conductor of the "Barber Shop", Mal Elward, Purdue head football coach, Paddy Driscoll, former Marquette football coach, Quinn Ry- an, WGN announcer, and the principal guest of the evening, Jimmy Wilson, new manager of the Chicago Cubs, who gave his first talk since his appoint- Fathers make three-day Retreat, June, 1940 ,Y V. , gh-V 'f 'A f "'2f..s.' -li ' -f""'.. ffa Pace One I-ltndred Two OFFICERS JAMES J.

The parents' most important social affair was held in conjunction with the Mothers' Club, Saturday, December 7, at the Boulevard Room of the Stevens l-lotel. After an enjoyable dinner the mothers and fathers danced to the scintillating music of Bob Peary's French Casino orchestra. This year's carnival, also in cooperation with the Mothers' Club, took place May l5, l6, and l7, with James J. O'Keefe as chairman. Five hun- dred dollars in prizes was raffled off. The mothers donated cakes and oper- ated the blanket and home furnishings booths, the fathers operated the games of chance with the adeptness of skilled croupiers. The event of most consequence, however, will take place June l3, l4, and l5. This is the annual three day retreat at the Dominican l-louse of Studies in-River Forest, to be conducted this year by Rev. Andrew O'Donnell, OP. This spiritual exercise enables the members of the Fathers' Club to withdraw themselves from worldly pleasures and cares and to spend three holy, fruitful days with God. During the winter months the club conducted Keno games Sunday eve- nings. These and other events directed by the club are intended to promote social life among Fenwick parents and to give financial aid to the school.

OFFICERS WILLIAM KILBRIDGE President EDWARD CARRAI-IER Vice-President WILLIAM MUSI-IAM Treasurer GEORGE SPEI-IN Secretary Page One Hundred Four REV, J. S. KENNEDY, OP. Moderator George Spehn Terry McDonald William Kilbridge Maurice O'Connor Walter Jennings The Alumni are the special pride of Fenwick. ln their achievements Fenwick realizes its chief purpose-to prepare men to enter the social and business world. The name of its moderator, the Rev. J. S. Ken- nedy, OP., has always been identified with the Alumni Association. Taking over the position in I935, Father Kennedy with un- tiring effort has made the Association the force it is today. The first Christmas dance given by the Alumni drew l5O couples, the last one held at the Congress Casino during Christmas week became so crowded that the S.R.O. lstanding room only? sign had to be hung out. Every Tuesday the active members gath- er in the school gym for an entertaining evening of sports and games. This meet- ing enables members to become better ac- quainted and to renew old friendships. The first major event of the year, the Homecoming Dance, was held at the Graemere l-lotel. This affair was made doubly enjoyable by Fenwick's rousing victory over St. Rita in the afternoon. On January 3, at the winter formal, a large number of the members danced to the music of one of its members, Art Wise, at the Lake Shore Club. The most important event of the year will take place Sunday, June l5, when the members will attend Solemn I-ligh Mass and receive I-loly Communion. This will be fol- lowed by a breakfast and the induction of new members. The Alumni News is edited by ex-Wick members. The staff is headed by John M. Collins. Assisting him are Ray Cross, managing editor, and Bill McGregor and James McDonald, sports editors. Al- though the Alumni Association is still very young, it has members successful in all walks of life. On Saturday, June 7, Edward Dymek and Donald Smith, both of the class of '32, were ordained priests in the Dominican Order. Bill Kilbridge, the president of the Association, and his commit- tee have made plans for a summer formal to be held Friday, June 20, at the Medinah Country Club. flll..
