F ENWICK HIGH SCHOOL
505 Washington Boulevard
OAK PARK, ILLINOIS
it we were to state here that Fenwick is
merely a school, something would be lacking.
Fenwick is more than a school. lt's a
spirit, a soft spot in the hearts of its many
araduates, a certain intanaible something in
the feelings of its students.
Far more important than the studies is the
sense of decency, patriotism, and fair play
which is instilled in each Friar araduate.
We Seniors have spent the best years of
our lives here, we've grown up in the locker-
bound corridors and the picture-studded class
Weve found solace in the chapel, guid-
ance from the faculty, and example in our su-
We've sweated out the football aames,
joked about the cafeteria food, prayed toaether
at Holy Mass, and now its just a memory.
Yes, its just a memory now, but an indel-
ible one stamped on our minds by myriad
incidents and happenings, each one making
us cry out, l'Thanks, Fenwick. Thanks for the
best years of our lives."

With a Catholic league title, City title, and a seasons record of
22 wins and 7 losses, the '49-'50 Senior basketball squad can well take
the plaudits they deserve. For the first time in 15 years the seniors
captured the Catholic league title, and for the first time in the history
of the school they went on to beat the Public league champion Tilden
for the City title in the Charity game in the Chicago Stadium.
Starting slowly in the practice games, the Seniors were bolstered
by the return of many football players to the hardwoods. ln the pre-
season tilts the heavies won 6 while dropping 4 games.
The Friars started the season with a 63 to 28 victory over De La
Salle. With Lattner and Conrad leading the way, Fenwick beat St.
Rita 66 to 34, Mt. Carmel 53 to 43.
ln the first big game of the year Fenwick edged St. Elizabeth 54 to
53. The heavies finished the first round of play undefeated with vic-
tories over a tall St. Leo quintet 49 to 40 and Loyola 53 to 42.
The second round was started with the same winning habit, Fen-
wick took De La Salle 47 to 23, St, Rita 00 to 44, and Mt. Carmel 50 to
47. But then Fenwick met the strong St. Elizabeth team, and even Iohn
Lattner's season high for one night, 30 points, was not sufficient to stop
the lronmen. The heavies lost their first league game 5l to 43,
ln the next game. Leos Lions tipped the Friars 39 to 37. ln the
itle and Championship
last game of the season, Fenwick beat Loyola 53 to 34. Tied with St.
Elizabeth for the South Section lead, the Friars dropped the play-oft
game to St. Elizabeth 45 to 24.

Finishing their season with a 42 to 35 victory over Loyola, the flyweights
established the remarkable record of seventeen wins and only one setback.
Losing only to Leos flys in the first round, the flys came back to rout the
Lions 47 to 30 and obtain suitable revenge. Iirn Barron, 52, was the leading
scorer for the flys, averaging sixteen points per garne.
The Bantarns got off to a bad start, but rapidly improved. Winning only
three of their first six games, the lfantams picked up steam and finished the
season with a record of ten wins angl six losses. Ed Curtin and Torn Mclienna,
both sophomores, led the tearn thrcughout the season in scoring with 98 and

For the 18th time in l9 seasons, Fenwick
has done it again. Led by Captain Ioe Happ,
and coached by Dan O'Brien, the Friar tank-
sters swept their way to another league crown.
The '50 team, led by seven Seniors, Won seven
out of eight meets, and brought home two more
trophies for the school showcase. During the
season the mermen met and downed such op-
ponents as Loyola Academy, St. George High
School, University High School, Culver Military
Academy, De Paul Academy, Mt. Carmel High
School, and St. Mel High School. The only
defeat suffered was at the hands of Culver in
the Midwest Invitational Swimming Cham-
pionships held in Culver, Indiana. For the
second straight year Fenwick was runner-up in
this particular meet.
Some of the more exciting events of the
past season were the victory over Culver in a
dual meet, Dick Wehman's upset victory over
Mt. Carmel's Iim McKevitt in the senior cham-
pionships, and the record breaking exhibitions
of the team's number one backstroker and
captain, Ioe Happ. Ioe climaxed his high school
career by breaking two league records and set-
ting an unofficial state record for the 100-yard
backstroke. On the last day of the season, the
league finals, Ioe traveled the distance in
l:03.l to set a new league record and an un-
official state mark.
From the performances of the Freshmen
Captain Ioe Happ confers with Coach O'Brien
and Sophomores of the team, the prospect of
next year's team is very bright. Outstanding
on the Iunior team were Hilaire Lavigne '52
and Iohn O'Reilly '52. Lavigne climaxed his
seasons Work by taking both the Iunior 50
yard breaststroke championship, and the Sen
ior 100-yard breaststroke crown. Iohn O'Reilly
took the Iunior 50-yard freestyle and placed
3rd in the Senior 100-yard freestyle. ln Winning
the 50-yard event Iohn established a new
league record by negotiating the distance in
25:2 seconds. George McElligott '52, and
Ierry Dunne '52 both showed promise in taking
4th and 2nd respectively in the league meet in
the 100-yard backstroke.
Some of the first year men who showed
promise were Dick Grunt and Harold Enright
backstroker and freestyler, respectively.
Chuck Green, breastroker, Reg Darley,
freestyler, Dick Beeman, backstroker, and Iack
Sullivan, diver, Iuniors scholastically, all
placed high in the league meet, and their ef-
forts were climaxed by Sullivan's winning the
diving crown. Some of the other men who
helped win the Senior meet were Bill Dunn,
freestyle, Ned Dougherty, freestyle, Dick Mica-
letti, freestyle, and Ed Vertuno, breaststroke.
All these men put their talents together and
worked hard to win their share of the triple
crown which Fenwick won this year for the
first time in the school's history.

According to the bells that
ring every forty tive minutes
the school day at Fenwick be
gms at 8.30 rn the morning
and ends at 2:45 in the al-
ternoon. But everything that a
gentleman should learn can-
not be taught in a classroom.
At 2:45 the school day is just
about halt over tor most of the
students, Extra-curricular acti-
vities play a major role in the

ties sponsored by the school

learn in a healthful atmos-
phere for all work and no

Completing its twentieth successful year with a fine school activi-
ties record, the Fenwick Band maintained a full schedule, as in past
years, with its repertory of marches, overtures and current popular
music. The band was organized in 1930 to fill the musical education
needs of Fenwick students, and has grown steadily ever since in its
quality and capabilities.
The Band is under the direction of Mr. Iohn Sovinec, who assumed
the post in 19395 and efficiently managing the forty-piece group is the
Reverend I. A. Simones, OP., in his thirteenth year as moderator.
Beginning the year with many performances at the fall football
rallies, the Band later played at the Prep Bowl game on December 3,
the St. Thomas Symposium on March 6, the Silver Gloves bouts on
March 3l, the Mothers' Club meeting in May, and its major perform-
ance, the Annual Concert on April 30, concluding the year with its
appearance at the Iune graduation ceremonies. ln addition, this year
Fenwick Band took a major part in the band division of the All-Chicago
Catholic High School Festival at the Morrison Hotel March 20, of which
Father Simones was General Chairman. Fenwick rated high in this
organization's band contest.
Having been outfitted in the fall with new uniforms at a cost of
52000, additional instruments, and other equipment, Father Simones
and Mr. Sovinec are now making plans for a larger membership and
a broader schedule, looking toward another decade of even greater

the task of selecting a Yearbook statt tell to him. Early in
October, Father Lillie appointed lohn W. Gustafson as editor
and then the statt was chosen from a list ot volunteers.
The Blacktriars was divided up into three sections, the
Faculty and Students section, the Athletics, and the Activities
section. A chairman was placed at the head of each division
with several men working under him. The work on the Stu-
dents and Faculty section began almost immediately with the
photographing of the members ot the faculty and the students.
William Hank was placed in charge ot the Students and
Faculty section, Assisting him in picture identification and
copy writing were Baymond Durst and Arnold Pins. The first
two sixteen-page sections and cover were submitted to the
Yearbook printers, Campus Service, during the Christmas
The Athletic department was handled by lames Bailey.
While lim covered the basketball games, Ed Vertuno wrote
about the swimming team, Vincent Baldassari had football, and
Bob Brett took the lntramurals.
The Activities section was put into the hands of Roger
Keith. Writing for him were his assistants David l-lynous,
Richard LaPata, Donald Clark, loseph Ryan, and George
Pictures for the Annual were supplied by Iohn Gustainis,
William Dwiggins, Toloff Studios, and the Oak Leaves.

erator of the Fenwick Building Fund Drive, announced that returns from
the successful September house raffle had supplied the remaining
3100000 of the 5400000 auota needed for the construction of a new
school addition, The drive was started in the summer of l945 to raise
the necessary funds for expanding the facilities of Fenwick in order to
accommodate the rising enrollment. Father VanRooy was appointed
by the Very Reverend Peter O'Brien, OP4, then Provincial of the Prov
ince of St. Albert the Great and Mr. Hugh E, Mulligan offered his
services to act as chairman.
On March l, l950, the leveling of the old Priory houses was begun

THE RADIO CLUB
Progress was again the by word of the
Fenwick Radio Club as it successfully com
pleted its l949-50 curriculum with the addition
ot a new radio room and more equipment,
After being evicted from the basement of
the old Priory by the wreckers, the club moved
en masse to the physics laboratory and pro-
ceeded to construct a new "ham shack" in one
corner. l-lere they reorganized their equip,
ment, which this year was embellished by a
new transmitter and receiver, donated by the
l-lallicrafters Radio and Television Corporation
Under the direction of the Reverend E M
Robinson, OP., club moderator, and Iosepn
Vitous, '50, chief operator and club trustee, the
15 members completed installation of their
economy-size rotary-beam antenna, set up
last year on the gym root.
Licensed members Ioseph Vitous, Donald
Otten, '50, and Edward Pikell, '51, have con-
tacted as tar locales as Czechoslovakia and
Australia this year.
Entertaining for the Dominican
Fathers' Seminary Fund are: Pat
OBrien, Ann Blyth, Iimmy Durcxnte.
and Phil Regan
A star-studded cast headlined by limmy
Durante, Ann Blyth, Phil Began, Pat O'Brien, and Al
Morgan presented a three hour variety show in the
Chicago Stadium, February 20, for the benefit of
the Dominican Fathers' Seminary Fund. The Lundi
Gras testival was planned to help finance the re
cently constructed millionfclollar Priory and Novi
tiate ot St. Peter the Martyr in Winona, Minnesota
Backed up by Claude Kirchner ol TV's Super
Circus, the Four Kit Kats, Shirley Watson, an acro
batic duo, and the Notre Dame and Bosary College
Glee Clubs, the show was a areat success and the
crowd that packed the stadium went home well
pleased Ann Blyth picked the lucky numbers for
the rattle, Sally Beck ot Bacine, Wisconsin, won the
new Ford and lsabell Winkler won the all-expense
paid trip tor two to Bome.
ln more this 'gear than in the past, the
Department of Religious Activities has pro-
vided the spiritual necessities of life for the
student body of Fenwick. Climaxed by the
use of the new chapel and confessionals this
year has seen a rapid growth in the depart
ment under the guidance of the Reverends
Thomas C. Donlan, QP., and Edward T. Law-
For the benefit and convenience of the
students, Mass has been said every mornina
in the new and comparatively large chapel in
the priory, and confessions have been heard
every afternoon after school.
Undoubtedly the areatest spiritual benefits
were offered by the yearly retreat, takina place
after the mideyear examinations. This year 2
retreat was aiven by the Reverend Thomas L.
Dolan, OP., director of the Society for Voca'

THE SERVERS' CLUB
More important than ever, the extremely
active members ot the Servers Club have
added several features to their organizaf
tion. The 23 members now have the privif
lege of assisting at the Holy Sacrifice of the
Mass in the new Priory Chapel completed
last winter. Also, this year has seen the tram-
ing ot a new club constitution, as well as the
designing of a special club pin, to serve both
as a sign ot membership and as an award for
laithtul service to the school.
The other rewards gained by the members
are unable to be seen, but through their partice
ipation in club services, the servers obtain
spiritual benefits and a more thorough appre-
ciation of Church ceremonies. Assisting at all
religious activities constitutes the task ot the
group. The busiest work remains for the Sac-
ristans, William Dwiggins and David Hynous,
SU, who must assemble the altar and prepare
the vestments and sacred vessels for school
The growing membership has caused the
new club moderator, the Reverend Iosepli l,
Hren, OP., to hold numerous classes to train
neophyte servers in the rituals ot Dominican
This year, the club was not only active
around the school, but also distinguished itself
by providing servers for Dominican services
in and around Oak Park, and for a special
Solemn High Pontitical Mass celebrated at
Holy Name Cathedral last March,
