ln a world sorely pressed for minds
with a knowledge of loreign lan-
guages and literature, Fenwick pro-
vides exacting courses in tirst and
second year French, Spanish, and Ger-
man. A four year l.atin course is also
otlered to students.
But most important ol all to the
learned faculty are the various religion
courses which include fundamental
concepts ol Catholic dogma, Scripture,
Church history, and apologetics. The
saying ol a short prayer belore each
class is only typical of the many ways
in which the Catholic atmosphere is
inlused into the minds and hearts ol

Through the pages of The Wick,
edited by the students, one is given a
monthly cross section ot the world of
l:enwicl4. This arrival of all-American,
all-Catholic newspaper is awaited
with honest eagerness by both priest
Several concerts were given by the
hand this past year at general school
assemblies, and the students were
awalfened to the fact that football
players werenit the only ones who put
in long tedious hours of practice.
To complete the all-around program
at Christian education, several dances
are sponsored during the year. The
laculty is fully aware of the fact that
these ahfairs are vital to the developing
ot true poise and character.
And as for a reward for scholastic
and extra-curricular merit Fenwick en-
rolls its highest students in the National
l'lonor Society, coveted and wcrlfed
lor by every boy during his Four years.
Qnly a select live or ten are enrolled
each year. just as the standards lor
the series honor rolls are high, so are
the qualifications which those honored
few must fulfill.
But to the bool4, behold the world ol
Fenwiclc, the world which constantly
bustles with activity. This is the small
world in itself which taltes a boy in
the formative and impressionable
years, guides him along through the
dilficulties besetting youth and gives
to society a Christian gentleman, a
credit to his country and an asset to a
new and better world to come.

THE CLASS OF 1942
Beginning its high school adventures in September of 1938, the class of '42 began
establishing new records from the first day by turning out with the largest freshman
enrollment. The Kev. C. A. Carosella, QP., was appointed to guide the class
over the bumps and pitfalls of high school days. The Frosh began showing their
spirit by producing a perfect attendance at four football games. A. lfrovenzano
and D. Dillon exhibited their skill on the football field while P. Bennett upheld the
class honor by winning in the boxing finals.
On the intellectual side the freshmen showed great promise by tying the seniors
for the number of l-lonor Roll members. The class officers elected were: D. Dillon,
president, Kilgallon, vice-president, Qrgan, treasurer, and C. Singer, secretary.
Feeling very important in the role of sophomores, the class of '42 returned from
its summer vacation ready to dig into school work once again. It proceeded to
reap more laurels under the class officers of: W. Buckingham, president, W. Brady
vice-president, W. l-losty, treasurer, and A. Provenzano, secretary. Representing
the sophomores in debating, we found T. Conlon, lvl. l'lealy, and lf. Kerr. Scholas-
tically Nl. Kerwin took the spotlight while l.ightner became active in Cisco
ln the athletic world the sophomore class held its own lntramural Night by win-
ning in the swimming relays. W. Brady and lfilgallon gained major letters in
football, and D. Dillon and A. Provenzano proved their worth both in heavyweight
fcotball and lightweight basketball, Among the stellar junior swimmers we found
W. Buckingham, R. jarka, and l3. Barrett. R. Wanamaker came to the front as an
When the class of '4Q returned in September of 1940 to form the junior class,
it did not sit back and coast on its laurels but set out to make history. ln the start
of the season the officers were elected as: D. Dillon, president, W. Buckingham,
vice-president, Kilgallon, secretary, and W. Brady, treasurer,

The various channels ol activity continually vvorlcing at l:envvicl4 are but mere
branches ol the nucleus-the classroom. ln spite ol the continuous exhortation to
get at things, the priests lcnovv lull well the importance ol a Firm Foundation.
This conviction is stressed by the vigorous manner in which classes are conducted.
A well-read student in American history stimulates less active minds by a logical
discussion. A seemingly insignificant matter ol theology is raised in a religion class
and the learned priest is fully qualified to dispell shadovvs of doubt. Rigorous, yet
beneficial assignments, are given in English, to mention only one by example. The
physical and abstract sciences are lively, concrete subjects in the hands at the
professors. Dull students are given a boost, inditlerent ones are set aright.

Fenwick l-ligh School opened its doors Sept. 3, '19-4'l, to a group al 97 boys who soon lormed
the Freshman class. Vifithin a short time they had become acquanited with the school and had begun
their First year as regular Fenwiclq students.
No sooner had they started to enjoy school lile than their budding upperclassiren-the sophomores
-declared open warlare, the lreshman initiation. During the following month the newcomers were
seen wearing bow ties and entering the school by the rear door, il not heard singing the school songs.
Cn Sept, 228, Rev, G. F, Vilalter, QP., Freshrran rroderator, conducted the class election. A
ditterent system was inaugurated by which each freshman section would norfinate two representatives

l'lugh Donlan held the position of manager ol the freshman team. The class ol ,45 is sure to take the
highest honors in every sport within a few yearsl
The basketball season came along and brought out more freshman athletic talent. William McElroy
merited a position onthe heavyweight bench while paul Grunert lound his place onthe lightweight
squad. This year's bantam and Flyweight basketball teams completed a successful season,supplying
shields for William lvlclflroy, William Fitzmaurice, jack Gilboy, Thomas Barrett, james padula, Austin

on the junior team: joseph Archibald, Edward McCabe, William Mulcahy, and Andrew Wallach.
These tankers are learning fast and promise to otter real threat lor the other schools within the next
A large percentage of the Freshman class entered into intra-school competition by taking part
in the various intramural sports ottered throughout the year. When the smoke cleared away after
the heated battles, we found that john lVlcAllister and james Padula had taken top honors in their
respective weight classes in the annual intramural boxing tournament. The Freshman passing tourna-
ment was won by john Goldthwaite, Charles Stalzer captured the ping pong title, the freshman
bowling title is treasured by Vincent Wagner, and the lrosh goll title was taken by Pobert Smith.
These intramural sports furnish an outlet for individual talent possessed by those unable to participate
regularly in the various athletic activities.
Since the lrosh showed such remarkable athletic talent, it is no wonder that they had their share

ln November the freshman class sponsored a variety show in the gym. Father Walter secured
the films and the freshmen officers sold ticl4ets for a dime. Even though it was the first time anything
lil4e this was attempted, the freshman class gave those present a grand time and succeeded in malcing

lo the average American boy Fenwick otlers a well
balanced system ol physical education. Besides being
the best equipped school in the city, Fenwick is blessed
with a well seasoned stall ol physical directors, The
Fireprool equipment room harbors over a thousand dollars
worth ol equipment, which safeguards the physical
being ol every Fenwick student. By superior coaching
the boy is instructed in methods ol avoiding injury in
games which involve bodily contact, ll injuries do
result a well equipped training room with heat lamps
and liniment are at the service of the distressed athlete.
The coaching statl also stresses calisthenics which
strengthen the body and lessen the probability ol injury.
The 38 trophies won by Lawless coached teams tell
the story of Tony Lawless lar better than the pen ol any
journalist. Tony is more than a coach to the boys, he is
a living example ol a Catholic gentlemen and a loyal
American citizen. l-le has no peers in his capable
direction ol both inter-scholastic and intramural sports.

asking none for himself. As a Catholic, he instills in the boys the principle of fair play,while as an
American he imbeds in the bodies of his boys the spirit of competition fthe will to be a good winner
rather than a good loserb. Further proof of his efficiency is the long line of alumni, former Lawless
coached pupils, who were or are athletic leaders in their various Universities. Besides coaching
the football and basketball squads, lony directs the gym classes and lhe intramural and minor sports,
All athletic contests are arranged through him. This year he tcok the smallest grid squad in the
league and groomed them for the coveted North Section title. l-le showed his basketball skill by
guiding an entirely unexperienced squad to thirteen victories.
lhe Country Doctor has nothing on Dan Q'Brien, l:enwick's trainer coach, when it comes to service
and loyalty. Being well versed in the art of physical treatment, he safeguards the well being of the
student athlete. Nursing ailing athletes isn't his only job, as Dan coaches the frosh football squad,
which is the pride and joy of Fenwick. lhe frosh have lost but one game in the history of the school.
l-lis coaching duties also take in the tutlage of the Bantam and flies cage squad. Dan is never idle
-all the clerical work in the athletic department, which is a job in itself, is handled by him.
Father Conaty is the kind of Athletic Director who takes pride in every victory and feels heavily
every loss. Throughout the school year Father refuels this flame of spirit in the students with his fiery
oratians. l-le is at every game or meet cheering his team,whether they be on the winning or losing
end. Four times he was elected president of the Catholic League, and in these four years the League
has grown into the greatest prep athletic organization in the city. Father is not only a financial
wizard and a spiritual leader, but the pal of every athlete.
Although he has only been here three years, Larry Flynn is beginning to be a part of Fenwick.
Qne of the finest line coaches in the city, Larry has developed four all Catholic linemen in his short
stay here. Last Fall he was honored with having four of his players placed on the all North Section
Nine Catholic League swimming titles in ten years is something for any school to be proud of.

Both wingmen, Captain jim Kilgallon and Dick Cronin are six footers and excellent defensive ends.
Kilgallon, a veteran of three campaigns, was named all-City, all-Catholic, and all-North Section.
Cronin, though only a sophomore, gained a regular berth on a championship team.
Starting at the tackle positions were Charley Singer and Jack Maher. Singer, terrific on defense,
won a letter when only a junior at the guard spot. Switched to tackle this year, he performed so well
that he was awarded a tackle berth on the mythical all-section team. Maher, like Singer, was Q
tough lrish lad, heads up and in on every play.
Rated as the best pair of guards in the city, were Bob Qstrander and Bill Brady. The latter gained
fame early, having captured a starting position when only a sophomore. As a blocker he was tops
and his prowess was rewarded by his selection on the All Catholic and Section teams. Cstrander,
voted as the most valuable lineman on his team, was a quiet hard worker, tough on defense and a
favorite with his teammates.
At the pivot spot, was 'String Beann center, Bill Conrad, 145 pounds ofdynamite. Besides block-

ng Four punts, Bill had the uncanny record ol never malcing a bad pass. l-le was a unanimous choice
lor the all-section post.
Maurie White, all North Section quarterbaclc, had no peers in blocking, Rated as one ol the best
in the state, he was also an excellent lciclcer and pass receiver. Don Dillon, the brains of the squad,
:ind tough as nails, did all the passing and a good share of the running from the lelt hall position,
l-le was always a threat on otiense, because of his unusual accuracy at pass pitching. Right half,
l-larry l-larris, carried the brunt of the l4iclcing, plus scoring seven touchdowns on speedy end runs.
Next year's captain, jaclc Higgins, the utility man ol the squad, could fill capably the shoes ol any
bacl4 on the team.
A ulvlighty Mite" the newspapers called him, a typical expression lor the curly headed ltalian
lad, Angelo provenzano. Bibs, as his team-mates call him, one ol the greatest baclcs in Friar history,
operated from the iullbaclc spot. By scoring 'l'l3 points in two years, he managed to salvage six
Fenwiclc scoring records. "Bibs,H who was awarded State, Western District, City, Catholic, and
Section honors, was the First man ever to receive the "Most Valuable" award, both in his junior
and senior years. uBibsH the greatest place ldclcer in Friar history, led his team in scoring when only
a junior and received all south-section honors.

NORTH SECTION CHAMPIONS
Climaxing a brilliant season, which brought a section championship for the First time since 1939,
the 1941 gridders were honored at the Annual Football Banquet in the Morrison l'lotel. Twenty-
one players received letters, namely: jim Kilgallon, Captain, Dicl4 Cronin, Cueorge Green, jim
Roorda, Bob Murphy, lack Maher, Charley Singer, Bill Walsh, Mike Pomano, Bob Qstrander, Bill
Brady, l'lenry Angsten, glim Collins, Bill Conrad, Jaclc l'liggins, Don Dillon, Maurie White, l-larry
l-larris, Angelo Provenzano, Bob Vaughn and Denny Mahoney.
The team piled up QOQ points to 45 lor the opponents in nine games. Six players were slated
lor honors by the newspapers. Bob Qstrander and Angelo Provenzano were named most valuable
to their team.
Bad weather proved to be a nemesis to this
year's lightweight football squad. Because
ot the scarcity of dry land on which to play, the
ponies were able to play only two contests
out ol their eight game schedule. The two
battles were nip and tucl4 attairs with the little
Friars dropping both games, the First to Austin
7-0 and the second to Saint philip 6-O.
As a group the ponies did not show up so
well, laclcing the necessary scoring punch. It
must be said, however, that they really did not
have sutticient chance to show their mettle
because ot the scarcity ot games. A lew ol the
looys did show up as good prospects though,
and it will be these who will he counted on in
next years heavyweight games.
-lo win a minor monogram for lightweight
football, a player must play halt the quarters,
that is, he must have seen service in at least
halt the quarters. This year Fifteen boys won
letters. They were: ends: E. Kavanaugh, P.
Dalton, T. Cusack, taclcles: R. l-lolecelc, Cast-
ans, guards: l-lennessy, Will4in, N.

Faced with the task of producing a winning team out ol a squad of inexperienced cagers, Coach
Lawless moulded a quintet that won 'I3 decisions in Q3 tries.
Leading the long Iist ol tryouts was Bill Griffin, a lad who saw limited service in his junior year.
Bill captivated the center spot and was appointed captain. I-Ie was second in scoring on a team
that averaged Q9 points per game.
At the key spots of the tive were Don Dillon and Dick Finn. The latter, a junior, lead the team in
scoring with 'I54 points. I-Iis prowess on defense was commendable, and he was always a threat
to opponents. Dillon, on the other hand was not versatile as a scorer, but was recognized as one
of the best feeders in the league. I-le was named most valuable because ot his sterling team play.
Guards Charley Frett and Bill Rosemeyer rounded out a well balanced squad. Frett and Rose-
meyer were not consistent scorers, but made a good percentage of their shots. Frett, one of the
best defensive guards in the league, was an excellent rebounder, while Posemeyer, a junior was
especially adept at passing. Bill will share the captaincy next year with Finn.
Number one reserves were Bob Callahan and Bibs Provenzano. Although he saw limited service
Callahan scored 60 points on tip-ins mostly, as his height made him a potent rebounder. Provenzano,
a Iormer lightweight, was a definite team man, full of spirit and always plugging, no matter what
the odds. Frank McDonald and john Lindsay, juniors, completed the squad.

The Fenwiclc juniors started the season with a very blealc outloolc, there was the choice ol retain-

kept abreast ol ulvlacn with their aggressiveness and Fight. Though they were behind by a good
ten or eleven points, they kept Fighting ,till the last whistle blew.
Although lew realized it, there was more sense in keeping the losing team with all on it returning
next year than using those men who would not be coming baclf, and then, winning only one or two
games. ln this season the lightweights have seen more action than they would have ordinarily seen.
-lhey have learned more by losing these games than they could have possibly learned it they went
through the schedule undefeated.

just ci little bit more Mac goes up Tourney champs tussle with Mels
Mt. Carmelfjunior tour-
Back in 'l94O, when Coach Lawless inaugurated his annual junior tournament, little did he think
it would become a major sport activity oi the Chicago District.
This tournament centers on the top Catholic teams in the cityand presents them a chance to compete
for pre-season l-lohors.
This year T5 teams entered, namely, Leo, Mt. Carmel, De LaSalle, joliet, l-loly Trinity, St. Gregory,
St. Phillips, St. George, St. Mel, Weber, St. lgnatius, St. patrick, St. Michael and Fenwick.
St. Philip, St. Mel, St. Michael, St. George, St. Pats, Mount Carmel and Depaul all won their
openers, while joliet drew a bye,
The second round saw four teams left in the person oi St. philips, Mount Carmel, St. Pats and St.
Michael. Carmel and philips won in the semi Finals and Carmel trimmed philips Q7-17 for the title.
St. pats won third place on a Q7-Q6 victory over St. Michael.
johnny Kempler ot Mount Carmel was the unanimous choice For the Hmost valuable player to
his team award, while Barney Riley, Mount Carmel, Tony lringalli, St. Michael, jack Lahey, St.
Philips, joe Daly, St. Philips and Pete Mcbligott, St. pats were named all-tournament.
Trophies were awarded for First, second, third and lourth place and to the most valuable player,
while gold medals were awarded to the all tourney team,
The Tourney was packed with thrills, especially the Michael-Leo tilt, in which the Mikes snapped
the Lions 42 game winning streak. johnny Kempier,Carmel,s mighty mite, scored 64 points in four
contests. Qfonnor oi St. Michaels captured high scoring homors for a single game, with his Q0
point scoring spree against joliet.
The Fenwick-Depaul game was a slow scoring contest with Depaul edging out a win in the Final
minutes. Dale Smith led the Friar attack with 9 points.
During the past year the Bantam and Flyweight teams ol Fenwick waged a very successlul campaign
inthe cage wars in and around Chicago. The Bantams led the list with eleven wins and six losses.
The teams were composed mainly ol underclassmen. Fredericks was the only Junior on the team,
playing along side were Barrett, McFlroy, and A. Nichols, who carried the burden lor the greater
part ol the season. The latter three and Fitzmaurice, P. l-lanly, Padula, and Gilboy represented the
Freshman class, while Dick Cronin and R. Dalton upheld the best traditions ol the Sophomore class.
Many ol these boys saw action in the heavyweight games as reserves. Since the bantams have
been the springboard ol many ol our star athletes, it is certain that from these ranks the teams ol '44
'45, will be built.
The Flyweights started a tough schedule with only three men having any experience at all. These
were three sophomores, Dunne, Wilkin, and Flarkinsee. But From the Freshman there came a Few
willing to put in the time and etlort necessary to have a winning team. Among these were M. Gru-
nert, F. Frett, Brundage, l-l. Fredericks, W. l-liggins, and P. Foley. As they won nine and lost
eight, it cannot be said that they had an unsuccesslul season, The majority ol games lost were dropped
by only a few points, and only then alter a hard battle.
Fvery year these teams give the chance ol playing to the boys who would be unable to play on the
Junior or Senior teams, This not only tends to develop the spirit ol competition in the boys, but it
also discovers and instructs boys who will carry the name ol Fenwick to the glory that she has won
time and again.

the best swimming teams in the country, easily outdistanced the determined, but unavailing etlorts
ol our tankers and won a 46-TI victory.
Undismayed by this turn ol events, the Friars practiced strenously tor several weeks and corrected
former detects. They sought revenge tor their previous deleats, and by taking First place in every
event, defeated Wells 45-'I-4.
Their next combat came on Marcn 3rd when they swam away lrom Austin in every event but the
breaststroke. This 43-'l7 success raised their hopes to unparalled heights.
The consistent scoring oi the Friar tankers again proved to be the decisive lactor as they deleated
a Loyola squad on March 'l3. The Friars toolf First place in every event but the breaststroke. A
new star came to view in Dick l-loelzer who took a First in T00 yard tree stvle.
Turning again to the nearby Austinites lor practice our mermen received an easy 38-Q8 victory
on March 18, missing a First place only in the 'IOO yd. breaststroke,
The breaststroke continued to be our one weak spot as we again Hwalked awayl' from Loyola
with a 46-Q3 score. Svitak tried hard but still lacked the necessary speed.
All etiorts of the tankers were now utilized tor preparation for the Catholic Lea gue Champion

ln the Finals on Sunday afternoon April
'l9, Fenwick won the QOO yd. relay with a
team made up ot l'l. Venn, l. Venn, W.
Cotter, and Braue. Dick Hoelzer won
the 5Oyd. breast stroke and simultane-
ously lowered his previous nights record
another two-tenths of a Second. Brown
took First and l"latch took second in the 50
yd. back stroke. Dick l-loelzer took First in

that our mermen tabulated more points than

Qn Friday, March Q7th, lrenvviclc crowned its Silver Glove champions before an overtlovv crowd
The entries numbered Q47,and out oi these came the eight 1942 Winners. I
The program started with the preliminary bouts. The Winners and bronze medalists Were: 'TT5 lbs.
-R, McClellan over P. Picherson, and l'l.Fredricl4s over Sheda, T35 lbs.-D. McCarthy over lf.
Kerr, and P. Kelleher over D. Svitalq T45 lbs.-C Curran over F. le Brun and T55 lbs -F. McGovern
over R. Weber, These bouts were very exciting and these boys, both victors and losers, deserve a
great deal oi credit.
Alter a short intermission the National Anthem was played bythe band, and the ilag raised simul-
Merle MclNlellis, Tom Weger, Denny Mahoney, Dicl4 Bennett and Bill Conrad vvere trying to
annex another championship. Jaclf Quirlf, Tom Tierney and Jim Courtney reached the round oi the
select sixteen a second time.
jaclc Maiewsld with his long reach and his Southpaw style could puzzle jack McAllister only in
the second round. Ninety pound Mac Went on to Win the decision.
Tom Tierney was too much the master of the game iorpete Foley. Tomis win was in the 'TOO lb.
Merle McNellis won his second championship in defeating Jaclc Quiria. The boys mixed it up
in all three rounds in this T15 lb. iight.
THEY COME OUT POUNDING
Getting up all the Floor was too much lol a handicap lor Tom Weger to overcome in his Tight with
,lim Q Connor. The knockdown was no llook. T Qfonnor previously had a knock-out to his credit.
125 lbs. was jim s winning weight.
Try as he did, slim Courtney could not get inside of Bob Qfonnorls reach. Bob won the verdict
and the T35 lb. title. The two Qfonnors are not related.
ln the best light of the evening, lrom a boxing view point, Denny Mahoney bested Dick Bennett.
Dick was the more clever of the two, but Denny's punches, in the judges opinion, carried more sting.
The 145 lb. crown was Denny s second title, and he was also the only champion to wear black trunks.
Alter a slow First and second rounds, Jim padula and Bill Conrad provided one ol the evenings
most exciting rounds. The Fight was close enough to make the Final round the deciding one. jim
won it and the T55 lbs. championship.
The heavyweight encounter produced the same melodramatic etiect. Art Doody and Mike Romano
knew when they touched gloves in the third round that that was the case. Art Finished stronger
and in so doing won himself a title.
The standings at the end of the eight lights gave the seniors three championships, the juniors two,
the Freshmen two and the sophomores a lonely one.
lmmediately alter the heavyweight light the champions were presented silver gloves with raised
white Ps. The runnerup awards had no l:. The presentations were made by Father Conaty.
The reieering of all bouts was done by Tuiiy Griffiths. The judges were vlim Grihfiths, l-larry Buscher
and Al Keegan. The timekeeper was Mr. Dyer Sacklev and the announcing was done by Bill Brady.
The seconds were: black stool-glack Maher and Charlie Singer, white stool, Angelo provenzano
and Bob Qstrander. The ushers were the senior monogram men. Dan Mueller, l-lugh Donlan,
Vince Kath, Miclfev Grunert, and James Prucha, were the student managers.

The Track leam captained by Merl MclNlellis has lew returning men ol any promise. Due to the
lact that Fenwick has no home track, they have to practice at Concordia College, located across
the street from the l-louse ol Studies. Qn May 'l5th, Fenwick travelled to the lllinois Catholic Relay
Carnival at Loyola. Last year a team composed ot Q'Brien, Worthington, l-larris and Brady won
the shuttle relay. None ol these men returned this year. There were dual mee-s with Loyola, St.
lgnatius, Mt. Carmel and Concordia. Qn May Q3rd and 24th, the Catholic League junior Meet
was held at Riis park. Cn the Following week the Senior Meet was held at the University of Chicago
on Stagg Field.
last year McNellis ran a second in the Catholic League 660 yd. run. Lightner was second in
the high jump. West, B. Foley, Peedy and l-ludson are expected to show up pretty well this
year. The junior team has many promising Freshmen coming up.
A new track sport was inaugurated this year-the cross-country team. They practiced in the Fall
and their meets which were supposed to be during the halves ol the lootlaall games, were all can-
celled. john l-ludson captained the team.

Senior Wick Stall
THEY DID IT BEFORE
For the Filth consecutive time the National Scholastic press Association has awarded the Wick its
highest rating, All-American, This continues the tradition which has been built up and which is
carried on by succeeding stalls.
The N. S. l3. A. judges the Wick on many points and gives a number ol points on each topic. ln
the latest judging the Wick rated more points than any other paper oi its class judged by the N. P. S. A.
The National Scholastic Dress Association considers the Wick one ol the best ot its type in the country
as it lrecjuently states in its criticisms. This organization seldom Finds any serious laull in the paper, but
it has altered many suggestions which have helped improve the Wick.
No small amount ol credit lor this commendable record is due to Father Van Rooy, moderator, who
educated the statis in the editing ol the paper. Besides winning the All-American rating, the Wick
was awarded All-Catholic, the highest rating given by the Catholic Press Association. This is the
seventh time this rating has been awarded to the Wick. ln addition the Wick was given the highest
rating lor typography in a contest sponsored by the Columbia press Association.
The Wick not only brings the student body all the latest school news but is a contributing Factor in
the development ol the writing ability ol the members cl the statl. lVlany juniors with a KB' average
or better yearly sign up lar the journalism class and apply the knowledge gained in their work as
reporters. During this year ol apprenticeship' they are guided by the senior editors, so that they
will be able to take over the paper when they are seniors.

Straight news is not the only feature ol the Wick, numerous news Features and teaturettes appear
in every issue. Besides these there are editorials which present the editors opinion on topics in
which the student body is interested, a column which calls the attention ot the readers to students
who have made themselves outstanding in their regular as well as extra-curricular work, two sports
columns, and a column which contains creative material written by members ol the student body.
photographs and cartoons help to liven the make-up.
Many schools throughout the country send copies ot their papers to the Wick in exchange tor
the Wick. This helps to give the statl an idea what other papers are doing and gives Fenwick stu-
dents an idea oiother schools' activities. The job ofsending Wicks to these schools and the alumni who
have subscribed to it is taken care ot by the circulation department.

Lawler, QP., Monday, luesday, and Wednesday, November 17, 18, and 19, 1941. "A short
prayer in the morning puts one in the correct lrame ol mind lor the entire day," Father Lawler said
in one ol the three conlerences that toolc place every day ol the retreat.
Decorated in the spirit ol autumn, with corn stalks and pumplcins the gym was the site ol the Friars

representatives in the religion classes collected several dollars lor this tund. ln addition the Con-
lraternity sponsored one ol the First dances lor the benelit ol the Red Cross in this section ol the country.
'Dutch' Kramer, '42, was chairman ol this event which toolf place in the gym Wednesday, February 11,
1942. The Red Cross lund was increased 3575.00 by this activity.
But since the Conlraternity is composed ol students, its main purpose is to provide the students with
an opportunity lor intelligent discussions ol topics concerning Catholic Action. Meetings talce place
about every two weelcs, at which two students give speeches on subjects ol interest to Catholics.

Tl-lE NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY still remains an exclusive and honored group as it en-
rolls only six new members this year. This brings the total membership at Eenwiclc during its First
four years to twenty-six. lo be eligible for membership in this select society a pupil must maintain
a high scholastic rating throughout the Four years of his high school lile.
Alter the pupils scholastic achievements have been determined, each member of the faculty ap-
praises the qualities ol character, leadership, and service which he has observed in the pupil. l-le
judges the honesty, sell control, the social attitude, and the religious enthusiasm exemplified by the
pupil. l-le rates the leadership displayed by him, as well as his participation in extra-curricular
It is not necessary that the pupil have participated in all the activities,but he must have proven
himself valuable to both school and society by his industry, Whether he chooses the literary, athletic,
musical, or religious activity malces little dihference, the essential thing is does he show leadership,
honesty, obedience, consideration lor others, and the other qualities that go to malce a true leader
and Christian gentleman.
With the requirements lor membership so high, the Society necessarily remains small and exclusive,
and to say that six new members have merited this coveted honor is a compliment and a congratula-
tion in itself.

WEIGHING WORDS WITH OTHERS
The debaters, arguing a topic this year which concerned the subject of compulsory universal mili-
tary training, under the leadership of Rev. CJ, G. Conway, QP., brolce even in the Catholic League
while maintaining a perfect record of eight wins and no losses in the Qpen Forum League.
Shortly after the debating question: Hpesolved that every able-bodied male citizen of the United
States should haveone year of full-time military training before attaining the present draft age" was
formulated,the junior and senior debaters met and were assigned to affirmative or negative sides of
After about two months of research into the topic and intramural practice debates, the squad
debated schools of the Catholic League.
The senior debating team was composed of Robert Goedert, '43, and glohn Foley, '44, affirmatives,
and Michael l-lealy, ,4Q, and Thomas Conlon, 42, negatives,
During the course of the year the main argument of the senior affirmative team has been that the
military policy of the United States in peacetime should be shaped with a view to wartime require-
ments, so that when the United States enters a war, the former policy of watching the enemy destroy
American property and manpower will be ended. This affirmative team further argued that in
particular the military policy of the United States should be shaped toward having ready at all times
as immense an armed force as is necessary in President l2ocsevelt's Victory program. Such a system
would require universal training,
The negative team has argued that a small, professional army, raised by volunteers, could defend
the United States in peace-time, They have further argued that the present system of a wartime

Munger, W. Buckingham.
draft has been effective in winning wars, which, after all, is the acid test of any military program.
The affirmatives and negatives each vvon four and lost four in the Catholic League. ln the
Qpen Forum League, vvhere the debaters had a perfect record of eight won and one lost, the vic-
tories Were even more important. ln the Catholic League only one judge vvas present at each
debate, while in the Qpen Forum League, after the usual four constructive speeches and one re-
buttal by each ofthe teams and half an hour of questioning of both sides by the audience, the decision
of the judges was arrived at, The coaches of the league, in addition to other vvell-informed people,
gave the decisions. As a result, there vvere three people to judge a debate. If a team won, it
could be sure that its case was intelligible to at least two people.
Hlphere is no doubt," said Father Conway, moderator, "that debating gives a student confidence
in himself and increases his ability to say what is on his mind while standing on his feet. There is no
ability in later life which counts for more in proportion to the effort involved, than facile expression
of ideas in good English." The competition, he added, 'fafforded by the other teams stimulates the
debaters to greater effort, Any student who is a debater gains tremendously from it."
The junior debating team participated in many debates this year, gaining much valuable experience
for next year's campaign, William Buclcingham, '42 james Reedy, '43, Edward Dunne, '43, Manus
Munger, ,44, and Raymond Gillen, '43 toolc part in the junior debates.
These clashes tool4 place before, during, and after the regular Catholic League season. The
juniors engaged in approximately 30 non-decision debates with Loyola, St. lgnatius, St. George,
St. Mel, providence, l-linsdale, and Leo.
The debaters were given pins in recognition ofthe Work put in on debating.

Friday, December 5. At this meeting the students signed their names on slips ol paper and handed
them to him. From this group he picked his committees. They were: Michael Kerwin, general

ol the volunteers and picked out their assistants.
The First step in the drive was the Filling out ol the applications by the students. Cln a slip ol paper
all the students indicated what their parents could otler For the drive and when the otlerings could
be collected. post cards were then sentto all the families that ottered loodstulils. These explained

the names ol worthy Families from various pastors ol parishes on the West Side ol Chicago.
About December 'IQ the contributions began to Fill the shelves ol the book store. Slowly the

and hundreds of pounds ol mixed vegetables. There also were 'I34 containers ol oat-meal.
At one time during distribution of the packages a basket was brought to a door in a crowded
neighborhood. The students knocked on the door and a shabbily-dressed woman answered. They
explained their presence to the woman, who alter listening to them, told them to bring her basket
to a neighbor who needed it more than her Family did.

O. P., Moderator
The band has talcen its yearly step up the ladder ol perlection. ln 7940 it was in the Class C
division in Chicago band competition, 7947, Class B, and Finally in 7942, Class A. Qnly through
the untiring ettorts of Father Simones, moderator, and Mr. slohn Sovinec, director, as well as that
ot the members themselves has this advance occurred.
Father Simones worlcs harder than any band member arranging uniforms, rehearsal schedules, and
attending to the thousand and one jobs connected with moderating the band.

little over two years has raised the standards ol the band to a point equal to that ol bands which
practice daily. l-le also conducts the Chicago Boys' Club band, widely accepted as one ol the best
in the country.
This year the band numbered 42 members, Twelve ol these were seniors, ten, juniors, twelve,
sophomores, and eight lreshmen. An oboe and a bassoon, added during the year, enriched the tone
ol the band.
Valuable training is given to the individual at the sectional rehearsals held during school hours
Monday and Wednesdays. Each week every member gives up one class to attend this rehearsal.
Besides this the lull band meets at 2:30 Monday and Wednesday afternoons.
Through the etlorts ol Father Simones and Mr. Sovinec student interest in the band has increased
by leaps and bounds during the year. Probably ol greatest importance in bringing this about was
the introduction ol the assembly concert. Qnce each series an assembly is devoted to the band to
let the students l4now what the band is doing. A number ol popular selections are played at these
Besides these, the band played at many ol the Football games, at most ol the home baslcetball
games, at the Symposium, Boxing Night, at graduation, lor a Fathers' Club meeting, and at the pan-
American Day Celebration.

In lceeping with its practice ol providing as much possible wholesome entertainment as possible
to the student body, Fenwiclc has sponsored a number ol dances throughout the year. These dances
inspire a spirit ol good-Iellowship among the students and gives them an opportunity to acquaint
themselves with girls their own age.
The First ol these dances was the autumn Conlraternity Dance in the gym Friday night, Qctober 'l7.
Departing from the usual arrangement ol using records to provide the music, an orchestra was engaged,
The freshmen were allowed the privilege of attending this dance.
Next up in the social calendar was the annual Alumni I-lomecoming at the Midwest Athletic Club
alter the St. Ignatius game Sunday alternoon, November T6, The couples were more jubilant at
this event because ol Fenwiclcs winning the North Section championship that very aiternoon by
overcoming Ignatius with o score ol 6-O. Benedict Gardner and his orchestra played.
Following this gala event, the Fathers' Club honoredthe Iootball team by its annual Iootball
dinner at the Morrison l'lotel, Thursday night, December 'I'I. The event was a little symbolic in-
as much as it paid tribute to the American youth who are setting out to beat the United States' enemies
in the war that started that eventlul weelf, Many lamous college lootball coaches and columnists
were there in addition to the numerous representatives ol schools and newspapers in the locality.
Proudly accepting its duty to the war etlort, the Conlraternity sponsored a dance in the gym Wed-
nesday evening, February l'l, and donated the proceeds, 575.00 to the Ped Cross, The committee
engaged George Foster to provide the music.

bishop gave as his reason the real saving of necessary material and money which would be used to
more advantage in consideration of the victory program. The Mothers, Club announced itself as very
willing to sacrifice this entertainment for the war effort. Further patriotic endeavors are being
formulated by the mothers for the next year's activity.
Friday afternoon, February 6, the club opened the doors of Fenwiclt to the old and the future
friends of the Mothers, Club, Guest day saw the arrival of many faces both of former members and
future friends. Mrs. Louis L.Mondi,chairman of the event, planned an entertaining afternoon for all.

TO one ofthe largest gatherings of mothers turned out for a card party in the gymnasium. Attractive
door and table prizes were awarded to the guests. This affair was arranged by Mrs. Roy D. Q'Brien.
The Mothers, Club, this year, has been instrumental in many constructive activities and donations.
The chapeldecorations,which were made possible by a generous donation and a large monetary gift
to the school from entertainment proceeds, are outstanding. This phase of club activity is in no way
new to the l:enwicl4 Mothers, for they have been more than willing in the past. Every student feels
his debt to the Mothers' Club.

THE CLASS OF 1942
Continued lrom page 'l4
Scholastically the junior class was almost perlection, l'lonor Roll trecjuenters
being Nl. Kerwin, D. Q'Bryan, and Krickl. Almost a score ol the students
ranked among those on the l'lonorable Nlention. Among the juniors who proved
their talent on the Wick Statt were: R. Ryan, R. Wanamaker, l. Conlon, G. l-leltt-
rich, G. jeschke, andj. NlcDermott-xl. Clark and gl. Colgan being editor and asso-
ciate editor respectively. lvl. l-lealy and W. Buckingham were preparing to take
over the duties ol the debators.
The junior class stood out exceptionally in the athletic Field. Kilgallon was
appointed captain ot the lootball squad-other members receiving letter awards
were: W. Brady, D. Dillon, A. Rrovenzano, R. Qstrander, Nl. White, C. Singer,
l-l. l-larris, and l'l. Angsten. W. Gritten, D. Dillon, A. Rrovenzano, and R. Bennett
showed great promise in basketball and were awarded minor letters-the captain-
ship going to W. Gritlin tor the coming season ot l94Q. R. ,larka was unanimously
chosen to captain the 1942 swimming team and, with D. Svitak, succeeded in
annexing the ninth Catholic League Swimming Championships. Cn lntramural
Night almost every event was a junior class win, no matter what port. The class
of '42 now began to step out socially, their tirst attempt, the Junior Rrom, drawing
the largest crowd in the history ot the school tor such an attair. Amateur Night,
an annual atlair, was sponsored by a junior religion class, with Clark as chairman
and Gaskill as master ot cermonies.
The senior year ot the class ot l4Q was one ot many and varied activities. At
tirst the class olticers were elected under Father Carosella: D. Dillon, president,
J. Kilgallon, vice-president, C. Singer, treasurer, and Clark, secretary.
Now the activities ot the students had reached their peakl ln. Conlon captured
the third place cup in the annual St. Thomas Symposium, NlcDermott, Kyickl,
Nl. Kerwin, Clark, R. Wanamaker, and D. Q'Bryan repeatedly appeared on
the l-lonor Roll, Roorda, C. Singer, D. Dillon, W. Brady, l-l. l-larris, Nl. White, R.
Qstrander, l. Greene, and l-l. Angsten showed their mettle on the football Field
as well as Kilgallon and A. Rrovenzano, the golt team included Cu. jeschke,
A. Doody, and lvl. White, Krickl, T. Conlon, R. Wanamaker, and G. l-lelttrich
held key positions on the Blacklriars statl, W. Buckingham and Nl. l-lealy took
debating honors and led the team.
ln the social light C. Kramer, as chairman, made a success ol the Red Cross Dance
given to raise lunds lor the Red Cross in this time ot war, and lvl. l-lealy was
chosen as the All American Catholic Boy in the diocesan contest.
The history has been made and recorded, now the class of '42 must leave Fen-
wick l-Iigh School and make their history elsewhere.
