Mathematics too is taught with the emphasis demanded by modern condi- tions. An opportunity is given lor the ditterent types ol students through the various social sciences treated. 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 in inlused into the minds and hearts ol the students. Three extra-cirricularclubs,the Aqui- nas Discussion Club, the Conlraternity, and the Servers, Club provide activity for those genuinely interested in reli- gious activity. The religion depart- ment, ol course, has charge ol the annual Symposium in honor ol our great Ratron, St. lhcmas Aquinas. Opportunity lor daily Mass is pro- vided the zealous student, Conlessions and Benediction are always a Friday occurrence. The record ol Fenvviclcs Fighting lrriars in every Field ol sport will attest to our education ol the vvhole man, Even the less athletic inclined daily enjoy the advantages of the line gym- nasium complemented by the well- eauipped shower room, training room, and pool.

This arrival of all-American, all-Catholic newspaper is awaited with honest eagerness by both priest and student. 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. fl Talking things over Brother Giles, QP.

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 all-around manager. 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, I Continued on Page 'l'll 1942 GRADUATES JAMES JOSEPH AHERN St. Lukes-Football 1, Boxing 1, 3, 4, Servers Club Q, 3, Discussion Club Q, Christmas Baskets 3, Amateur Night 3.

R. Vaughn Parents Night personalities. R, Weber M, White 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. HE STUDENT AN Within the last Few years the Wick has received the highest ratings possible This is because Fenwick has a special course in English lor juniors which touches on the dillerent phases of newspaper writing, editing, and printing. Alter having Finished a year of such a course, the young journalists take up positions on the regular Wick stall. Every boy is under the watchful eye of a professor, interested not only in him as one who must learn For this physical world, but also as one who is to be properly guided spiritually.

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 lrom wharf were chosen tive rrembers ol a cabinet in addition to presideht and vice-president. The president was Stuart l-lelltricn and vice-presideht, lathes Archibald, Austin lVlclNlichols, l"larold Fredericlts, Thorras Burlce, Williarr Ashton and Wlilliam Mclflroy held the cabinet positions.

The players howing great ability were Charles l-larley, Asstin McNichols, Williar' l-liggins, aha Q ' A 717 o ooert l-lanley. 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 lVlcNichols, Robert l-lanley, paul Grunert, Eugene Frett, john Brundage, Harold Frederick, William l-liggins, and Peter Foley. The Freshman class produced more than its share ol mermen, tour being 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 lew years. 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.

Among those appearing regularly on these honor lists, we found james Wilson, Robert Walsh, ,lohn l.ong, and Stuart l'lelffriclc, ln almost every activity the class of '45 was well represented. At sport events and at any meeting in the school could be seen a constantly increasing number of freshman students. The band oraws a large group ol freshmen at every practice insuring Fenwiclc top music honors in the future. ln the NEW WORLD subscription drive, conducted by the Most Rev. Archbishop Samuel A. Stritch, D.D., john Kloclfe, a member ol the freshman class, tool4 first prize for selling the most subscriptions of any individual student. The class of '45 again published a freshman paper, showing the highlights of frosh activity. ln the editor-in-chief s position was ,lohn lVlcCarthy, while holding the cartoonist s office was laclc Gilboy, serving also as a cartoonist for the Wicl4. 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 some profit. fenwiclc granted scholarships to the parishes sending the largest numbers of students. Within the parish the scholarship is merited by the most deserving student. Freshmen who were awarded these scholarships were Robert McGrath and William lVlulcahy, St. Giles, Andrew Wallach, Ascen- sion, Fred pandow, St. Paul of the Cross, William l-lanan, St. Catherine, and George l-lampsch, St. Edmund. Each and every one of these students is active in some field of worl4 at school, each trying to capture future scholastic honors.

THE WDRLD OF SPO R , . 1 . v Hilltill Q... R H, 5- SQ fbias Coach Lawless Larry Flynn 'fs-4 Rev. P. J. Conaty, OP. 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. Year alter year he has brought glory to Fenwick, while S C O R E S Fenwick .... 39 Austin ...... Fenwick .. O Mount Carmel Fenwick ,,.. Q5 St. Philip .,.. Fenwick .... Q7 Weber ...

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 team. Nine Catholic League swimming titles in ten years is something for any school to be proud of. ln Dick Thompson, a former Qlympic star, Fenwick has one ofthe most well versed mentors in the city. Dick is a little onthe quiet side but nevertheless a great favorite with the boys, Coach Lawless explains play to gridders. Father Conaty presents trophy. UN Ill Ht lH The smallest squad in the schools history, but the one with the most spirit is Coach l.awless's own words describing his 'l94Q North Section Champs. 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- Top Row -Jack Higgins, jim Kilgallon Ccaptainj, Maurie White. Bottom Row -Charley Singer, Dick Cronin, Bill Brady. 'HIHIHHN llliillli 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. HHH HHHHS 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. Colias, center: T. Murtaugh, packs: G.

IIIIHH llllllllltlll 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.

Coach l.awless did the latter. It is a move lilce this that will develop the luture athletes and give them the experience necessary tor baslcetball. There were several men on the heavyweight team that could have played on the juniors, but in order to have one good team instead oi two mediocre teams, they were raised to the heavyweight level. Captain Merle Mcidellis led the ,luniors through a wiclced sectional schedule. Many schools, not being able to defeat the senior varsity, toolt it out on the lights. The men who played almost all oi every game were Captain McNellis, jaclc Cody, Dale Smith, all juniors,and vlim Walsh, and Guy Galley Sophomores. It was the tloormanship and close guarding ot these men that held the opposing teams to a minimum number oi points.

JIINIHH illllilil 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. 06 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.

Along with Captain Bob jarka seven mermen returned lrom last year cham- pionship team. The Fenwick tankers opened the season on 5lanuaryQ'l with a preliminary meet against the Morton team. Fenwick received a dissappointment, losing 36-33 even though they took First in only three events out ol seven, Two weeks later the mermen journeyed to Maine. Maine, one ol 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.

The "little Friarsm practice under Coach Thompson along with the seniors and from their ranks, he selects his senior squads. The juniors have their meets along with the Seniors, junior and senior events alternately. Brown was First in the 50 yard back stroke in the Catholic League Meet. Braue and Ruska also scored points in the same meet. Whitey Ruska seems destined to take over the diving next year.

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- taneously. 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. division. Merle McNellis won his second championship in defeating Jaclc Quiria. The boys mixed it up in all three rounds in this T15 lb. iight. 72 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.

Every year the stati begins its Work early in the school-year-about Qctober or November. The stati usuolly selects a theme to be carried out throughout Qloicklriors. The moderotor then selects the 50 editors of the sections, who arrange Hdummiesn of their sections. A Hdummyn is a rough drawing ot how the pages in the yearbook will appear, each page must have a udummyf' The editors then assign the articles to the writers, correct them, rewrite them it necessary, and send them to the printers after writing heads for the articles. The design and material used on the cover is another problem the statt must decide. While the written section is being prepared, pictures are tal4en by the photographers of all phases of school lite, social, athletic, and aesthetic. These pictures are mounted and sent to the engravers. When the proofs ol the articles and ot the pictures come baclc, the editors arrange them on the Hdummiesf' This job completed, the proofs are returned, the yearboolc is printed and distributed, and another record of Fenwiclc lite is set down for future years. About 30 members of the senior class aided Father Lillie and the statt in turning out this issue of Blaclctriars.

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.

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.

THESE EXCEL 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 activities. A 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 the question. 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 90 juniorDebaters-E. Dunne R. Gillen, J. Reedy, M. 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. 91' Christmas Basket Committee:-M. Kerwin, G. jeschke, Rev. V. 5. Feltrop,'O.P., moderator, F.Gleason,T. Colgan.

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. concentrating his vast musical knowledge and experience on Fenwiclcs band, Mr. Sovinec in a 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 concerts. 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.

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.

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. l Ill Compliments of Alumnz Assoczatzon OF FENWICK HIGH SCHOOL 1941 - 1942 REVY J.
