"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

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

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.
