F orty- ji Salutatory TONIGHT, as the class of 1938 performs its last act at Fordham Prep, I have been delegated to welcome you all to these exer- cises in the name of my fellow graduates. As is natural, when we pause for a brief moment before leaving the Prep forever, we suddenly come to realize the tremendous debt of gratitude which we owe you, our parents, teachers and friends. Therefore we halt a few moments to express our sincerest thanks a Christian Education may controlled by the principles been in vain. Moreover, it you, but this government of factor, for the relationship to you all. You, our parents, in giving us rest assured that our future lives will be of Christ and that your sacrifices have not is not alone we who should be grateful to ours should also recognize you as its bene- of youth to the state is one of the issues of the day, and a constant source of worry to our elders. And so, for a brief time, I wish to speak to you concerning the principles by which we shall be guided in our relationship to the state. Amid the bitter attacks that are hurled against the Church by those who hate and fear her, is the charge that the Christian System of Educa- tion and the teachings of Christ are harmful to the state. To refute this claim, consider upon what ground such a claim is built. First consider Catholicism in the past and then in the future. Look back twenty years to the World War. Amid the shell holes of Belgium, in the hospitals of France, in the cold, murky, unprobed depths of the North Sea lay the bodies of Catholic soldiers and sailors. In the titanic struggle of Chateau- Thierry, the Marne, and the Argonne, who can overlook the bravery of the Catholic Sixty-ninth, men who were educated in Catholic Schools of this country? What have the enemies of Christ's teachings to say of these men? Observe the great Catholic statesmen of the past. The Catholic men who helped to frame the Constitution of these United States. What have the enemies of Christ's teachings to say of these men? Dare they base their ludicrous claim upon such menaces as these men? No, naturally they dare not. Since their claim is not based upon the past, perhaps it is based upon the future, which will fall into our hands. Perhaps the principles of Christian Education have changed and are now dangerous to the welfare F arty-six of the state. To show them that this is not the case, let us compare the principles which we have learned and accepted with those principles exploited by our contemporaries in the public high schools. Then let us decide which of us is the real menace. We have been taught that one of the strongest pillars of these United States is the freedom of religion, while our students in the public schools find their religion a barrier rarely overcome. We have been taught to conduct ourselves for the good of the state and the Church, while our contemporaries' eternal question is, '6What will I get out of doing this?" We have been taught to be ready to defend this government, to fight for it, and if need be, to die for it, while our contemporaries hold mass meetings and sign pledges never to fight for, nay even never to defend, these United States. We have been taught to thank Cod for such a homeland, and to faithfully uphold the spirit of her great Constitution while our contem- poraries stand beneath red flags before their schools and call for the over- throw of these United States, of the very government which is doing its best to give her ungrateful children a complete education, free of charge. Of the two groups which constitutes the menace? The answer is all too plain. Those then who dare assert the ridiculous charge that Christian Education and the teachings of Christ are harmful to the state, are shown to be those foolish men who built an imposing structure upon a foundation of sand. When we have furnished them with these facts, in the words of St. Augustine, "then let them dare assert that Christian doctrine is harmful to the state, rather let them not hesitate one moment to acclaim that Christian doctrine, rightly observed, the greatest safeguard of the state." And therefore you, our parents and teachers are the greatest bene- f actors to the state. You have given to the state Catholic gentlemen who will be able, in a small way, to uphold the traditions of Catholicity and of the state which you shall in a few years pass on to us. You, our profes- sors, have instilled in us the Christian principles which will aid us to preserve these traditions. Tonight we of the class of 1938 have come to realize this great benefit, and while we welcome you here this evening, We want to express our gratitude and assure you that as far as in us lies we shall always be faithful to the Catholic principles we have learned these past four years,-the principles that will keep us ever true to these United States. ROBERT T. STEWART F arty-seven Valedictory TONIGHT the army of Catholic high school graduates in the country is increased and strengthened by the new recruits from Fordham Prep. Tomorrow we go forth in the battle of life as Christian soldiers protected by the armor of Catholic education. To those who have welded that armor together-our parents who have given us a Catholic home training, to the Jesuits who have re-enforced that home training by a sound Catholic education, we owe a debt of gratitude that can be repaid only by the exemplary lives that we may hereafter lead. Perhaps never in the history of the world-certainly never in the history of our glorious country-has there been a greater need of Catholic education than today. In our public institutions of higher learn- ing, particularly in our own city of New York, we see the minds of our youth infiltrated with the pernicious and destructive doctrines of atheism and communism. We see our American youth taught that there is no purpose in their existence except material gain, that there are no rights except man given rights, that there is no end except the end that comes when nature lowers the veil, and the body is interred in the ground or its ashes scattered to the winds. How different is the Catholic system of education in which we have been trained. It recognizes the spiritual and material, it recognizes that we must be prepared for two lives, one here on earth and one with God in Heaven. The only true education is that which teaches that the arts, the sciences, and other secular branches of learning are only mileposts along the trail of life to our ultimate goal-eternal life with God, the Creator of the World. We are living in a troubled world. Dark clouds are lowering over our land, but through those clouds the sun is still shining-it is the sun of Catholic education that is sending out its bright rays in the persons of Catholic educated youth. They are an army of tens of thousands, aye, hundreds of thousands who have gone forth from the Catholic schools of our country with knowledge in their minds, with faith in their hearts and upon their lips the battle cry of Loyola, that has re-echoed throughout the centuries in every corner of the Christian world, where the black robed Jesuit missionaries have gone their way. '4Ad Maiorum Dei Gloriam"-- to the greater glory of God. To know God, to love Him, to serve Him in this life and to be happy with Him forever in the next is the purpose, and the only purpose of our F arty-eight existence--there is no other purpose, and a Catholic education teaches us how that purpose can be accomplished. The course of study, iwhether it includes the fine arts or higher sciences, that fails to teach that purpose and the means of accomplishment of that purpose is incomplete and inadequate and must be characterized as a disastrous failure. And surely in these troublous days, when the country is in the throes of an economic War, when millions of people are unemployed and virtu- ally starving in a land of plenty, and when misery and privations are being capitalized by unscrupulous persons to undermine the foundations of our government, there is a vital need of an education founded on Catholic principles, there is a vital need of an education that is based on charity, justice and a love of neighbor. Today there is rampant in our country a brand of so-called education that is arraying class against class, that engenders disrespect for law and order, that advocates force and violence for the accomplishment of its aims. We, who have been educated in a Catholic high school and who are recruited under the banners of our Church and country, have the oppor- tunity to serve our country as soldiers of peace and to dispel these false doctrines-as young citizens who have been taught the Catholic doctrine that capital has obligations to labor and that labor in turn has obligations to capital, that the majority rules but that the minority has rights that must be respected, that the family is the unit of society, upon which all governments must depend, and that the individual possesses certain inalienable rights that must at all times be protected and preserved. These are Catholic principles which have been taught at Fordham, and which if they were only rcognized throughout the country, would soon bring about in our present economic war an armistice which would he received as joyfully as the armistice which ended the World holocaust in 1918. F ellow-classmates, we leave Fordham tonight with a certain feeling of sadness at the thought that the gate at the end of the path may mean the close of our days at Fordham, but the memories of Fordham, the friend- ships that we made with one another, the ties of sympathetic understanding that characterized our instructors, will not end until We stand at the Eternal Gate, with those never dying Words upon our lips, which We learned at Fordham.

Vice-President . . . . Secretary .. Treasurer MR. J. A. TRIMARCO MR. P. J. SHEA MR. J. P. CASEY T THE end of four years of conscientious physical and mental exercise the class of 4A has come to the parting of the ways. A metamorphosis has taken place and the ungainly youths of four years past have stepped into the awaiting cloak of young manhood. Just as a sculptor molds unshapcly clay into intricate and beautiful statues, thus our minds and bodies have been modeled and dc- veloped by the fostering stall of Jesuit and lay instructors. To build a sturdy house. a sound foundation must be laid. Similarly, to prepare a young man for the trials and tribulations of the world beyond the comforting embrace of his family, a firm base of character and culture is necessary to support the weight of F i ity-two future discouragements and pitfalls and to assist us toward the goal of being better citizens, ascending rung by rung, the ladder of success Ad Maiorum Dei Cloriam. Now as we step forth from the portals of the Prep it is for this nurturing of mind, body and character that we in our humble way, wish to extend heartfelt appreciation to each professor before Whom the class of 4A has assembled. Among us there have been countless verbal expressions of denunciation con- cerning what we thought to be an overabundance of home work and a scarcity of holidays, but this was merely external, for such complaints are, as they say, in vogue. However, internally among our intangible emotions were mixed respect, admiration, love and fidelity for our Alma Mater, its directors, and its teaching staff. As the class of 4-A takes its leave of the Prep it can well be proud of the attain- ments of its members, who semester upon semester have taken an active interest in Prep programs. Foremost among these stands Robert Stewart whose accom- plishments directly pertaining to the Prep and its activities have transcended those of all the other graduates. Aside from his presidency of innumerable societies together with his activities in the Shakespeare Academy and Pardow Debating Society, he displayed his talents over the footlights in a number of the Prep's stage successes and due to his flowing oratory, won the silver All-Jesuit Oratorical cup for the schoolis collection. In scholastic endeavor, since the class of 4A assembled for its first schola brevis till now, the time of our graduation, Edmund Harvey has worn the regal crown. On the field of sport Daniel Maher has toed the rubber and unleashed thwarting pitches against the Prepis opponents on the diamond. Between the goals Joseph Mulligan has crouched over the cowhide at the spearhead of a powerful Prep attack. ,lack Blake was also in the cast of several school plays and distinguished himself on the speakers' rostrum. Henry Wehde, Jerome Mullaney, Michael Murphy, and John Majeski were literary contributors to the RAMKIN and its predecessor, The Beacon. But to name each member and enumerate his accomplishments would require more space than is at hand. To those who have not been mentioned here, I am sure that their classmates and their Alma Mater consider their achievements worthy of more than a written confirmation. From the moment of our first assembly 'till this of our dispersion the class of 4A has remained intact. We have advanced through the stages of high school education at the Prep, becoming more closely knit and more companionately associated until our almost fraternal loyalty and spirit resembles that of the off- spring of a common family. But now the time for the parting has arrived. In the future only fond memories and reminiscences will be the medium through which our serious and joyous years at Fordham can be recalled and even relived. Some of us will continue our preparation for the future in higher institutions of learning, while others will take their place in the troubled world, and by Godls grace and mercy may we always abide by and remember the Christian doctrines so happily a part of our Catholic education, no matter what our position in life be. Thus with the vision of Christ before us and with His teachings foremost in our hearts we walk down the winding path Hanked by lush fragrant lawns and majestic trees to fill the breaches in the ranks of a Christian army marching toward the goal of peace and a life-ever-after. l F ifty-three A L . .M ij' l 4B JAMES B.

HANISH HE opening scene of a four act drama known simply as 'g-1B', is laid in almost - a score of bedrooms in as many houses in diverse sections in and about New York City. It is a bleak morning in February l93-44, a score of alarm-clocks relentlessly prod their victims from their lethargy. ln each bed, the victim of this attack grunts, rolls over, glances at the clock, and springs from the bed with sudden realization that he has left behind the Eighth Grade, and it is his first day of High School. They arrive at Fordham Road and Third Avenue, they are directed to Hughes Hall, a gray stone building, they enter, and collect on its ground floor. Here, twenty component parts are integrated to form one, that one bears the name of "lB". Later they are dismissed, and as they near home, they proudly parade past their elementary school with a nonchalance born of achievement. But they are soon to learn that decimals and compound interest are not the highest achievement of education. Each year the minute fissure in the rampart of Ignorance was widened, and more and more booty pillaged from the city of Wisdom. Out were carried the garnets of Baculus, the sapphires of Caesar, the Fifty-four rubies and emeralds of Cicero, and the pearls and diamonds of Vergil, away were hustled the silver of Xenophon, the gold of Homer. Like twenty Pandoras, within the city we peered 'neath the lid of a treasure chest labeled "Math,', we recoiled with horror from the algebraic devils, and the Binomial theorems, only to lose our footing and fall into the meshes of circles and triangles which the hunter, Geometry, had set. H But the movement of our play has been rapid, the fourth and last act is nearing completion and the terminating curtain of graduation hangs threateningly above. But how different are the players in this last act from those in the opening scene. To be sure, they are, almost to a man, the same characters of the prologue. But what a change in stature, and features! And now these who, as former Freshmen, admired and respected the student notaries of the upper grades, are themselves holding these coveted positions of fame and responsibility. When "Zev', enlisted marchers in his "Pigskin Paradeu he found many '64-B" men right in step. "Tiger,' Wandres, and "JimmyM W'hite were two regulars who showed their pluck year after year. ln producing captains, the class pointed with pride to John Herold, Co-captain of the 1936 team, and "Lou" Russo, who Co-captained the '37 eleven. As for the work of "Gus,' Marinak, rotund and avoirdupoised linesman, it was reported by our spies that many rival ball-carriers uforgoti' how to make line plunges when they saw him. Thanksgiving passed, and with it the Xavier game, and Prep football. ln the locker rooms the Prepsters stuffed their cleats into corners, and dragged out their sneakers and basketball trunks. Again "4B,, was ready with its regulars, like "Frank" Farley. To merely mention that "Baldy" McGovern and "Jimmy,' White were 'Co-captains of the 1937 Varsity squad would be a mortal sin in Prep athletics. Under Baldy's and Jimmy's leadership, the 1937 squad was the first Prep team to win the St. Peteris Tournament in the four years of its existence. Any Prepster who attended this tournament will never be able to forget the Co- captains' unique graduating gift to their High School. "Jimmy's" final winning basket in the Xavier semi-final, and "Baldy's" final winning basket in the St. Peteris Prep final game. Again, in their turn, the sneakers were thrust away, and track men searched far and wide for their uspikesv. Still again 4B had its volunteers in the field, perennial mainstays of Mr. F. Scanlon. Again "41B" produced a Co-captain, this time in the person of "Tiger" Wandres, who helped win many a track meet. "Johnny" Herold, and "Jimmy" White again turned their athletic talents to the support of the Prep, and were joined by '6Johnny', Roach, another Venske of the future. Unfortunately Neptune's court had only one caller from 6'41B", Wllexi' Kissane. Yet in his swimming he was always on the "crest of a wavei' and he used to Hail his arms at the mere mention of a baseball pool. Now wait a moment, don't smile and say, with a condescending air: "Oh, athletics, eh?" Yes-athletics,-and scholars, and leaders. "Leadership" is a hard word to define in a few meaningless phrases. We rather fancy that the word is best shown in g'Jimmy" Whiteis action as President of the Student Council. Perhaps the nearest thing to student government in the Prep is represented by the Athletic Council. If so, 5413" has a right to claim a class reflecting leadership, for it boasted four out of ten members on the council, with '4Jimmy" White, "Baldy" McGovern, "Dick" Wandres, and John Herold representing it. And so the last curtain has fallen, and the prologue drawn. Again it is February, but now 1938. Again, the same alarm clocks call almost the same sleepers. Again they jump up, but now it is with a feeling of regret and reluctance at the parting. Yet, we know that, whether at the meetings of the Prep Alumni Association or at the chance meeting of a fellow classmate the joys and sorrows, the successes and failures, and the trials and tribulations sealed within the walls of Hughes Hall will again live and seem real to us.

This saying, true under the laws of vegetation is also true in humanity. Here we stand, about to be graduated from Fordham Prep. Here we stand, matured in body and mind, on the threshold of our future. Here we stand, possibly for the last time as one group. The past four years have not been easy for us, at times, perhaps, we w'ere sadly discouraged. We have despairedg we have rejoiced. Despite all previous ex- periences, today, we only have fond recollections of our stay at Fordham Prep. In First year, we were open to the assaults of a new system, men teachers, new subjects. Under the able guidance of Mr. Rooney, SJ., the Rev. Fr. A. Glaser, S.J., and Mr. Casey, we overcame our difficulties and successfully reached Second year. It was at this time that we suffered our first reassignment of classes. When we first began at the Fordham Prep, the first one we met was Fr. Raines, Fifty-six SJ., at that time Student Counsellor. He gave us in brief, an outline of our next four years, he taught us to beware laxity in studies and to always keep our goal in mind. Those who heeded his words are still with us. He taught us to have class spirit and pride, to work together and to fight together. To him, we owe a great debt. Since that time, our number has decreased and classes were merged to make up a cross section of previous classes. Like little seeds are planted, and their sprouts burst forth from the ground, only to be transplanted, weeded out, and to be grouped and arranged as they reach maturity, so we have been shifted and changed, and now we are reaching the maturity of blooming youth. In Second year, Caesar was no longer the conqueror, but the conquered. Our studies took us upon a new subject'-Greek. At that time the popular expression. "lt,s Greek to men became a reality. When Third year came around, we were confident of our ability, consequently. Ovid, Cicero, and Zenophon fell easy prey to our eager intellects. Mr. Delaney expanded the virtues of loan of Arc, while Ovid upbraided Rome and its civilization for its evils. We have now reached the Utopia of the F reshman's dream-Fourth year. From this apex, we look back on our four years at Fordham. Misadventures are forgotten, only the good and the happy memories remain. We have our quota of genius, we have our quota of athletes, we are, as a class, not lacking in any respect. We are proud of our reputation. We have always tried to uphold school tradition and honor. We have, as the basis of honor, our class pride. The athletic phalanx of "ILC" is a match for the best. Harry Bain and Hlimi' Condon were outstanding on the gridiron. '4Ray7, Loftus is without a doubt one of the best basketball players on the team. U4-Cv is especially well represented on the track team, having '4Bill" Vitale and '4Billp Sullivan, in its number. Frank Senerchia bears our colors, proudly, on the diamond. In "4-C" orators are abounding. Without our quintet, debating and oratory w'ould be at a loss. This group consists of Blaise Pasquarelli, Walter Lynch, "AIN Helm, "Larry', O'Connor, and Ambrose McCall. We are justly proud of them and their achievements. We boast of '6Lenny', Daly, a perfect example of sportsmanship, intelligence, and felicity. We would be at a loss without the gentle touch of humor, the quiet jibes of John Kennard afford us. To balance the class, we have the quiet and sedate John Canning, Frank Coffey, and Henri Silz. The whole school looks to "Red" Heitholf for its inspiration as a Cheer Leader. This is our line up. This is our pride. During these four years we have been especially grateful for the splendid faculty that has been provided for us. They have been more than teachers to us, they have been our friends. Foremost among these are-Mr. Rooney, SJ., Mr. Hanish, Mr. Casey, and Fr. Abbott, SJ. We are more than grateful to them for their aid, their advice, and the philosophy they have imparted to us. As a parting word let me say, as a humble scribe, that although we may never meet again as a single group, our memories of Fordham Prep will stand as one, against the ravages of time.

ZACCACNINO UR class of boys united from former classes lC, ID, lli, and IF has witnessed a sad declination since we first came to Fordham four years ago. Some have dropped out because of poor health, others because of failure in studies. But we have managed to stay and complete four years of the classics, years of the greatest happiness which will offer us much for recollection. We cannot help but remember many professors which we had for our direction in Latin, Creek, Math, and other subjects -men such as liev. Father Talon, Sal.. Mr. lViUl'g8Il. lVlr. Hanish, lVl1'. lVl4-Donougrh. lVlr. Trimarco and Mr. Delaney. F ifty-eight As we came up the path, September 1934 we were perfectly aghast. We were surrounded by the Prep booksalesmen and then were summoned in the Gym and welcomed by Rev. Father Bona, SJ., new principal of the Prep and Rev. Father Raines, SJ., Student Counsellor. Since then we have realized the joy we anticipated when we decided to register as Prep men. Our teachers have been the best we could hope for and were always ready to assist us in passing our subjects with good marks. ln recalling the four years that have passed away so quickly, we pause to recall the friends of ours who were once Prepsters. John Speer, President of our Fresh- man class IC is now holding a position with the New York Journal, Jerome Koch, a class basketball player is at present a student at Roosevelt High in Yonkers, "Pooch" Polcini is at present a sergeant-at-arms at Peekskill Military Academy, Joe Feter is a basketball star at St. Simon Stock High, "Dusty', Dunnigan is a Roosevelt High student in the Bronx and Harry Hanlon is a student of Iona Prep. We will never forget them nor the others who are not with us now. Many things have occurred in the four years around the campus. Beloved Rev. Father Raines, S.,l., was transferred to Xavier and Rev. Father Glaser, SJ., appointed in his place as Student Counsellor, the new school seal was sketched by Joseph De Natale, Keating Hall was built, a Band formed, study hall, the ucarceri' of the less studious boys revived, and Rev. Father Gannon, SJ., replaced the Rev. Father Hogan, SJ., as President of the College. As we leave Fordham Prep, we leave behind us the happiest four years of our youth, carefree and joyful years spent in the absorption of knowledge. We leave in a sad mood, for a fine fellowship is to be scattered probably all over the country. Some will follow careers, others will go to college, the only consolation is that we can face those years of hard study and work before us with that confidence which a good preparation gives us. On taking leave we thank our teachers and the administration and bid them a solemn farewell. Fifty nme 4E DoNA1.D F. BOMEISL . . .... President DENNIS A. WAGNER ..... . . . Vice-President YVILLIAM E.

MR. E. P. DUNNE HREF years ago, twenty-three volatile elements were compounded by the authorities of Fordham Prep into a Science Class designated ZE. Our stay at the Prep had its struggles, high-lights and disappointments, but we survived all of them-most of the impurities heing dissolved in an ideal Senior Class. We had good times and had times at the Prep as we directed our course toward our only ambition, attaining religious, physical and educational knowledge. Now let us attempt to trace this career of ours. In the fall of 1934, as twenty-three students we were well dispersed among the Freshman Class. Nevertheless we soon learned what "Jug,' meant. Under Father She-a's guidance we immediately understood how the Prep was disciplined: Father Sixty Bona, S.J., the Principal, arrived at the Prep with us and we became acquainted like two dissimilar magnetic poles. The Student Counsellor, Father Raines, SJ., saturated us with a complete knowledge of our Holy Mother, the Catholic Church, After the formation of that very volatile compound 2E, those former scattered Freshmen soon became acquainted and sincerely welcomed Fr. Glaser, SJ., as their Student Counsellor. They went to greater heights., Under the excellent tutelage of Messrs. Casey, Lyttle, McDonough, Shea and Nebot, 2E slowly progressed to their "exit" from the Prep. "Edu Nolin and ulacki' Hayes earned their Prep letters respectively, as football and baseball atoms, alackw Riely was electrifying the tennis world, Clark, Ainsley and Drummy excelled in scholarship, '4Mac" McGovern, the gram-weight, served the Prep as a J. V. court artist. Junior year saw our curriculum slightly altered-Modern Language substituting for History. Our teachers were Mr. Kirchner, Mr. Zaccagnino, Mr. McDonough and Mr. Pallace, S.J. Hayes was elected Captain of the Prep uninef' The class baseball and football teams did very well in the lnterclass Tournaments. Wagner and Griflin took part in some school productions and debates. Riely supported a valiant but weak tennis team. t'Bill" DeMucci and "Wang,' Bomeisl saw action on the gridiron, the former was injured in the first game and consequently was lost to the Prep for the remainder of the season. "Jim" Moscato won his J. V. letter for baseball. Senior year was a gala year for ILE. It was saturated with successes and pre- cipitated many honors by a new' array of teachers, Messrs. Delaney, Dunne, Zaccagnino and Morgan of the Lay Faculty and Mr. Zegers, SJ., and Father Abbott, SJ. Jordan and McGovern started off the year by capturing the Senior Doubles Handball Championship.

For this reason, Fordham Preparatory School continues her time-honored sacred custom of weekly Confession, Mass and Holy Communion. The Knights of the Blessed Sacrament is the ideal devotion to foster this necessary training of our youth. Thus the student who is well equipped spiritually is bound to succeed in the other scholastic activities. l"I RST FRIDAY DEVOTIONS livery Hrst Friday of the month, the school provides special devotions to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The services consist of a brief talk on the intention of the month as proposed by the Apostleship of Prayer, followed by an Act of Consecra- tion to the Sacred Heart during Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. The various members of the Jesuit Faculty were the speakers at this special Sacred lleart Devotion. Seventy-two ZH I Senior Sodality Rav. ANTHONY N. GLASER, SJ. .... ............ M orleramr JosEPH F.

' SPIRITUAL ACTIVITIES OF THE SODALITY Fordham Prep School was well represented at the Summer School of Catholic Action, August 16-27, l937, held at Canisius College, Buffalo.

Prefecz fsecond terml The chief purpose of the School of Catholic Action was to fill Sodalists with ideas to promote student spiritual activity in every phase of student life. Divided into special classes, various topics received minute and careful consideration. The keynote ol' the Convention reiterated and stressed again and again, was the need of a strongly organized Sodalityg a Sodality Hlled with active members, a Sodality that will do much in furthering active Catholicity. Other topics discussed were the promotion of Catholicity in the fields of literature and drama, and in the liturgical guild, a better understanding of the Church's liturgy was urged. ln the course of the year, the Prep Sodality adopted the Keynote of the Con- vention. Thus under the auspices of the Sodality, Fr. John Bellwoar, Sul., con- ducted a liturgical guild and Fr. A. N. Glaser, Sul., a mission guild. We are happy to announce that despite the depression the students contributed the niagnihcent sum of about 95200.00 for the Philippine Missions. Our adopted lVlissionary Father. the Rev. John O,Conuell, SJ., expressed his sincere thanks and deep appreciation for such "marvelous generosityn. Another Student Activity Convention took place in Buffalo, N. Y., April 30 to May l, at which Mr. Kavanagh, SJ., and Richard Burgi represented Fordham Prep. We naturally feel proud of our successful endeavors in the various fields of spiritual activities which lurtliered devotion to Mary and the spread of Christ's Kingdom on earth.

It might well be said that this end was accomplished during the past school year. At every activity whether it was athletic, scholastic or social the Student Council was able to bring about a greater interest and a better attendance. No small credit must be given to our Moderator, Father Bellwoar whose unceasing efforts have made the Student Council the most in- fluential of the Prep societies. The elections of' officers for the September-February term resulted in the election of James B. Wlhite, Presidentg Robert T. Stewart, Vice-Presidentg and Joseph F. Mulligan, Secretary. The officers for the February-June term are Walter A. Lynch, Jr., Presidentg Gerard M. Gilligan, Vice-Presidentg and Donald F. Bomeisl, Secretary.

This same question was debated against St. Josephfs and St. Simon Stock High Schools. Both debates were lost by close decisions. ln the former the Prep team was composed of Lawrence G.

This was followed by a no decision debate with Canisius High School of Buffalo in which Hans Stolten and John Stevens turned in a magnificent per- formance. On May third. Blaise A.

Clear and concise in its accounts, dedicated to fairplay on the athletic field, it is a splendid publication. The infrequency of its appearances is due to the drastic limitations of the Athletic calendar. The men on the staff learn the knack of condensing a highly interesting contest into a few hundred Words without losing a bit of action. They learn to take a dull contest and interestingly span it over an equal space. The editorial department has done much for the accomplishment of that famous slogan, 'alVlore Pep in the Prep." Great praise is due to the men on the staff and to Mr. Nebot, their moderator, for such an excellent publication. Seventy-nine Eighty The Ramkin Staff 4fSepl.-Jan.J Erlilol'-1'l1-Chief lima!-ilu' T.

Managers O ADD to the general enthusiasm about the school and its activities, at a 1 meeting last summer, lVIr. lVl. F. Kavanagh, SJ., proposed the forming of a Prep Band. During the first week of school in September, able players were enrolled, and practice began soon after with thirteen players as a nucleus, and twenty others aspiring membership. Encouraged by this success, a raflle was hold, attracting the students and their friends by the hundred dollars' worth of prizes. With a wonderful display of true school spirit and support, the raffle became a tremendous success, and uniforms and instruments were obtained with the proceeds. This association w'as to glorify the athletic games, and add the necessary color to the various social functions held at Collins Auditorium. After many weeks of diligent practice both indoors and outdoors under the keen Fzgh ty-two supervision of the moderator, the band made its debut at the third game of the football season, dressed in maroon and white uniforms and gallantly lead by Drum Major Lawrence C. O,Connor. Stirring up great enthusiasm at rallies, the band cheered the football team at five games, winding up the season at the Xavier game with a spectacular demonstration in forming letters, marching and playing the Fordham Ram. Thrilled by its successful run during the football season, the student body demanded the band at the basketball games where it ran true to form, especially at the interscholastic championship games at St. Peter's. Then at Christmas time it gave three concerts at charitable institutions. At mid-year a Junior band was formed to break in new players for the Senior band. Letters were awarded to members attending sixty rehearsals and twenty public appearances. Though still a young organization, we must truly give the band its due praise and thanks for such a successful starting year, and we sincerely hope that we can again look forward to pleasant times with the Fordham Preparatory Band. Bernard O,lVlalley was in the orchestra for three years and won the prize for being the most valuable member last year. Continuing his efforts in the band this year he won the four year award at graduation. The five dollar gold piece awarded to the most outstanding man of the year for enthusiasm and faithfulness was received by Robert Shields. Eighty-three J Industrial Arts Club Mn. l'A'rnn:k J.

President LMOST as old as Fordham and its Mliatio Studiorumw have lJ6C,1 its classical 'extra-curricula activities: debating, dramatics, elocution and the like. But now the infant of the extra-curricula family takes a lusty bow on its second birthday. lts birth was marked by an announcement one day on the bulletin board by the moderator. It stated that those interested in forming an Art Club should meet on the following Saturday. That was in 1936, and in 1933 the Art Club, with an average attendance of ten, has grown from an experimental group to a useful, talented club. Doubtful and inexperienced, the members dared only to Work in pencil, at first. Meeting with success they ventured on to pen and ink and charcoal as their media. After continuing success, they have now also acquired Watercolors and oils as their agents, with the latter evidently the favorite. Some also tried their skill at photo-tinting. This talented group has shown its work in three exhibits in the Preparatory and University libraries, of which its most recent, including ten oil paintings, took place late in the Feb.-June term of 1938. The cluh's work has also shown its practical and useful side by designing several posters for both Prep and University functions. and has successfully taken part in many University Poster Contests.

From the handful which ' appeared at the first meeting, the membership has steadily grown until the society now lists about thirty rnenibers. The first appearance of the Club was at the Orchestra Concert, in December when we sung the Christmas Carols. The Club was well received and during the holiday we were invited to sing at St. Patrickgs Home, and at the Home of the little Sisters of the Poor. The Clee Club added much to the religious and social affairs of the Prep and the improved singing of the Clee Club as the year progressed was due in no small degree to the efforts of Mr. T.

S ecrezary COMPLETING its sixth successful year. the Shakespeare Academy conducted A its annual "Shakespeare Nightn April 1. For prompt, scholarly and com- plete answers to all questions on the three tragedies and a prepared thesis, Blaise A. Pasquarelli, '33 was awarded first prize. Richard T. Burgi and Daniel F. Sullivan also competed for the prize, HShakespeare Completew, conferred by Rev. Robert l. Gannon, SJ., President of Fordham University. ln a short ad- dress following the decision, Joseph F. Condon, chairman of judges, spoke on the value of Shakespeare Night as one of many avenues of culture in Fordham Prep extra-curricular activities, and the pride every student should feel in the tradition, culture and name of Fordham Prep. Assisting lVlr. Condon as judges were Dr. William W. Ankenbrand, superintendent of schools, Yonkers, and Dr. Karl J. Holzknecht, noted Shakespearean authority of New York University. Dr. David lVl. Powers, professor of speech, Fordham University, and Prep '29, presided as chairman of the program. John C. Duffy, A.lVl., and Donald J. Ryan, A.lVl., also of the University faculty, were the invited questioners. John E. Kennard, Laurence G. O,Connor, Dennis G. Wagner, and Albert E.

Moderator BLAISE A. PASQUARELLI ...... President RICHARD T. BURGI ...... Vice-President LAWRENCE C. O'CoNNoR . . . .... Secretary THE current year was perhaps the finest ever enjoyed by any Dramatic Society in the history of the school. In November the election of officers was held and the honors of the presidency were conferred upon Blaise A. Pasquarelli Whose interpretation of Petruchio in uThe Taming of the Shrewv last year won him this honor. The position of Vice-President was given to Richard T. Burgi, who portrayed Portia in '36 and Katherine in '37. Lawrence G. 07'Connor was elected Secretary of the Society in recognition of his two comedy roles, Launcelot Gobbo in '36 and the delightful Grumio of "The Taming of the Shrewf, Before the Christmas holidays the announcement was given that the annual play would be Edmond Rostand,s '4L'Aiglon.', Scripts were distributed among the society and the arduous rehearsals began on January 7th with a reading of the play. By the end of the month the major roles were settled on these four capable men: Richard T. Burgi in the title roleg Blaise A. Pasquarelli as lean Flambeaug Robert T. Stewart as Prince Metternichg and Albert E. Helm as the Emperor Francis of Austria. Eighty-eight "The joke was playefl so well, I really thought another might come out." Rehearsing three times a week, the play, under the excellent coaching of lVll'. J. Gerard Cregan, gradually reached its peak. On April 23 a special performance was given for the Sisters of Greater New York and a large and appreciative audience responded. The scenery, left in the capable charge of Mr. l. V. Smith, SJ., surpassed even the excellent work that was done on the 4'lVlerchant of Venicefl April 26th arrived, and with every detail ready, the cast nervously pacing behind the draw'n curtain, the orchestra began the overture and the curtain rose on the first act of Fordham Preparatoryls annual play. 6'L'AIGL0N', The performance proved to be the finest thing seen on the Fordham stage in many a year. lt surpassed even the wildest dreams of moderator and coach. Undoubtedly the superb performance of Mr. Burgi was the pivotal force of the evening. Aided in no small way by the outstanding portrayals of lVlr. Pasquarelli and Mr. Stewart, Mr. Burgi made the difficult role of the Duke of Reichstadt live. The unfortunate Duke, son of Napoleon, dreams of regaining the glory of his great father. But he is held a virtual prisoner in the court of his grandsire, the Emperor Francis l of Austria. The Emperor, a weak, futile ruler, completely submissive to the mind of his Chancellor, Prince Metternich, has a real love of his grandchild and agrees to allow him to return to France. As usual, Metternich overrules the decision in a very gracious manner, asking guarantees which would reduce the Duke to an Austrian Duke on a French throne. Seeing that his grand- father is dominated by the shrewd Metternich, the Duke accepts a plot fashioned Eighty nine HI mam Lo be a cabman in Viennaf' by Jean Flambeau, a veteran of the Napoleonic Wars, to return to France. From this point the audience sat tense as the men on the stage traced the tragic tale of the unfortunate nLlAiglon,,' Wlihe Eagletfl The drama reached its height when the plot is discovered by the Chancelloris agents and the Duke caught. Flambeau, in order to escape arrest kills himself and on the fields of Wagrarii, where Napoleon crushed the Austrians, the veteran dies. The son of Europe,s greatest Eagle visions the battle of that held and the exultant clamor of it seems to ring in his ears. As he fancies himself about to lead the French in attack he sees an Austrian Regiment approaching. With raised sword hc rushes at itg he is seized by an Austrian ollicer who informs him that this is his own regiment. The awful truth comes to the Duke. Though he would be French, he sees he shall never escape Austria, nor sit upon the throne of his father. He becomes resigned to his fate and the pace of the play slackens off as he fails in health and finally, surrounded by the Eagles of Austria. the Eaglel of France dies. Metternich, unmovcd by this tragic end orders, uClothe hiln in his Austrian Uniformf, It is the Final indignity to an Emperor who might have been. Thus came the final curtain to what w'as hailed as the finest Prep play in nineteen years. For the third consecutive year the prize for the finest performance went to Richard T. Burgi. Second honors were given to Blaise A. Pasquarelli. A bronze medal was awarded John F. Stephens for the best work in the minor roles. Others in the cast who gave fme performances were: Robert T.

At this meeting the election of oflicers for the coming year was held, with "Charley" Wilson, '29, and "Charley" Bauer, '32, retaining their positions of President and Treasurer, respectively, by unanimous vote. At the smoker, ",loe', Fox, ,29, suggested that a memorial trophy, in memory of "Mike" Dunn be awarded to the winner of the Fordham-Prep Xavier football game. The suggestion became fact when Mr. Wilson presented the "Mike Dunn Memorial Trophy" to the Co-captains of the Prep football team in the name of the Alumni Association at the All-Jesuit High School Symphony Concert. January 30th, 1938 marked the date of the Semi-Annual Communion Breakfast, with Mass celebrated by Father Quilty, a Prep graduate. The guest speaker at the breakfast in Keating Hall was the Hon. William Cunningham, former judge of the Court of Claims of New York. The Hotel Astor was the scene of the Annual Winter Dance of the Alumni held on February 18th, 1938 and attended by a majority of Prep graduates of past years. The Alurnnews was the first publication ever attempted by the Alumni and was attended with much success on its initial appearance. Chloe" Drury, '32, was named Editor and John Fischer, '32, Business Manager. Preparations are now under way for a second edition this year. Father Donnelly, SJ., whose text books are widely known and used, wrote the editorial for the first issue. The Annual Spring Communion Breakfast of the Prep Alumni was held Sun- day, May 22nd, 1938. The Mass at 9 o'clock in the University Chapel, the breakfast in the students dining room in Dealy Hall. The guest speaker was the widely known Mr. Godfrey Schmidt, '21, and he addressed one of the largest audiences in Alumni Communion Breakfast history.

The game was played Saturday, October second, at Fordham Field and featured a comeback by the Rams, who matched a twelve-point advantage garnered by the Blue and White in the first three minutes of play. Jimmy White, shifted to the backfield, proved an able ball carrier, while Johnny Perazzo also accounted for much yardage gained by the Maroon. ln the line were seen, named from left to right, Co-captain Ed Nolin. Harry Bain, Marinak, Joe Mulligan, 4'Dutch,, Wagner, Co-captain Lou Russo and, covering the post assignment, John Herold. ln the backfield, besides White and Perazzo, Moran, "Wang" Bomeisl and Donnelly saw action in the fray. Hzevw Crahanfs charges next met Adelphi Academy, to whom they lost 19-13 in a battle staged on the loser's gridiron, Saturday, October ninth. The visitors, running attack was not only strong but exceedingly shifty, while the Rams uncovered a passing attack which led to both of the Maroon scores. At this game, the Fordham Prep Band, newly organized through the efforts of Mr. Kavanaugh, S.J., for the Prep faculty, made its debut, and successfully too. The new musical organization was led in its marching formations by Larry O,Connor. while Albert Helm performed as student leader. The introduction of this band to Prep athletics lends a touch of color and spirit to the exciting Maroon grid battles. Playing during crisp football weather, Friday, October fifteenth, at Fordham Field, the home team bowed to Brooklyn Prep by an 18-7 tally. The Rams held a slim 7-6 lead at the half-way mark, but the Crown Heights lads scored in each of the remaining periods. to win easily. Weak play by the Prep ends, coupled with poor tackling by the forwards of the Maroon eleven, overcame a strong running and passing attack by the Rams. After traveling to Lynbrook l'ligh's field on Long Island, the Prep eleven was defeated in a close battle 7-6. Jimmy White scored the Maroon touchdown follow'- Nzm ty-six ing a downfield drive by the fighting Ram line and l backs. Low and deadly in this game, the Prep 1 tackling showed marked improvement over that seen in previous encounters. Invading Bronxville, the Fordham Prep grid squad was repulsed 14-13, Saturday, October thirtieth, in a game which once more pointed out the importance of that extra point. After this tussle with their West- chester neighbors, the Rams lost to Mount St. Michael 6-0, playing on the victoris windswept grid- iron Saturday, November sixth. When the Maroon failed to capitalize, though deep in the Blue and Gold territory, the Saints took possession of the ball and scored once with an aerial from Murphy to Sheridan. In fact, only once in the last half did the Rams push past the Mountis twenty yard stripe! Thursday, November second, in the traditional Turkey Day battle, the Maroon eleven upset the Xavier Cadets 19-12. In this game, it was Tom Moran, Ram backfieldman, who initiated the scoring with a successful plunge, which thrust climaxed a steady downiield march by the Maroon. Co-captain Lou Russo converted from placement. Later in the fray, soon after he had recovered a Prep fumble, Cadet White slashed olf tackle for Xavier's tally, but the Cadets did not convert the extra point. Ritter, Maroon and Blue end, recovered a blocked kick behind the Ram goal line to put his squad in front 12-7 at the end of the third period. But in the final bracket, g'Wang7' Bomeisl and Jimmy White both tallied for the Rose Hill eleven, giving victory to their team. By virtue of this victory, the Fordham squad annexed the new'ly-established 4'Mike', Dunn trophy, which the school will hold until the next Thanksgiving Day game. In reviewing the schedule, it may be safely said that, although the Xavier game marked the first win of the season, the poor record was overshadowed by this unexpected success. According to the manner in which the Maroon lost some of its battles, the Rams would most likely join these athletics who favor the abolition of the extra point. But now, before this record is com- pleted, a farewell and hearty thank-you must be given to the graduating gridiron Rams. Among those members of the team who played their last game in Maroon were Co-captains Ed Nolin and Lou Russo, Herold. White, Bomeisl, Bain, Marinak, Mulligan, Wagner, Wandres and Condon. So long, gang, and thanks a million! Ninety-seven Basketball HICN lfelvruary rolled around, Graduation once again took its toll amongst HZ:-vw Craham's Big Five. and Jimmy White and 4'Baldy', McGovern cast aside their uniforms once and for all at the conclusion of the St. Peteris Tourna- ment during which they romped to glory. Though much praise is due to men, such as Farrell and Smith who filled the vacant spots for the remainder of the season. nevertheless they lacked experience which is so essential and the loss of our Co-captains was felt to a great extent. XVith their attack functioning poorly, the Rams fell hefore a strong St. loseph's squad 23-25 when they invaded the victor's gym for their initial encounter on Derenilrer lflth. Gradually gaining momentum the Maroon quintet was w'hipped into shape and came out on top in their next three contests. The Alumni was the Hrst to go down hefore their onslaught hy a 37-20 count. a game that featured such stars as 'cllahhitv Stirnweiss, Howie Yveil et al. The team Continued on its way sinking haskets right and left, till it toppled the Cadets of Xavier 4-0-35 and trounced Cathedral 36-20. But then the Christmas Spirit must have heen a little too much for "Zev's,' lads. hecause when the Prep travelled down to Regis, it proved to he a sad day for the Rose Hill outht when they lost 29-47. Undaunted the Prepsters houneed hack into the scoring column hy easilv stopping Adelphi 2-1--l5, to get in shape for their Hrst league game against Mt. St. Michael. Like most teams who preceded it. the Mount five was toppled hy the Maroon avalanche 33-27 when our own Ray Loftus and Jimmy White paced the field with fifteen and thirteen points respectively. The Prep did not meet with the same success upon locking horns with the Kelly-Green of Manhattan, its second league opponent. The Hassett lurothers Went to town in the closing minutes to put Manhattan out in front where they remained till the final whistle 127-Qtt. ln like manner the next hurdle on the Maroon schedule proved to he too great, and the Rams suc- cumhed to the Bronxville attack to the tune of a 30-27 tally. Such was not the N1 n ety-eight l case with All Hallows. For although the Blue and White 1 fought to the bitter end, Father Time intervened and they wound up on the tail end of a 25-23 count. All along, by a process of elimination, the Prep was working its way to the top of the C.H.S.A.L. The defeat of Iona Q30-221 by the Bose Hill squad marked Fordham,s superi- ority to all the teams in the league and for the present prospects were rosy. Basking in the light of these newly acquired glories, the Maroon squad set out for Jersey City and the St. Peter's Tourney in order to prove its superiority to All Jesuit Competitors. It was no easy or simple matter. lt was fight, fight, fight, for the lads but this they did willing- ly. First off the Rams nosed out Xavier 27-26 and in the semi-finals stopped Brooklyn Prep, that year's defending Champ f35-281. Thus Fordham reached the finals. The game was closely fought but through the leadership of White and McGovern, the Rose Hill crew weathered the storm. McGovern with his timely last minute shot won the game and thus enabled Maroon supporters to depart in joy. And so another trophy was added to the Preps' ever-increasing collection and another triumph, 23-21, went down on the records of Fordham. It was at this point that Graduation took its toll. However, the loss of Co- captains White and McGovern registered no immediate effects. The Prep con- tinued its winning streak by downing Loyola 36-23. But now the mighty team that was, was no more. Old rivals rose up to avenge their past defeats. The new team crumbled and fell slowly, bowing Hrst to Mt. St. Michael 20-15. Man- hattan repeated its former victory by walking over the Rams 28-15. For one fleeting instant it looked as if the old spark plug was still faintly flickering and w'ould burst forth once again, for All Hallows had a tough time nosing out the Rams 22-21, Dame For- tune this time favoring the Blue and White. Whatever spark remained faded slowly but surely, and in the final contest with Iona the Prep went down in defeat 29-21. Thus ended a brilliant basketball season, successful and yet unsuccessful, Fordham Prep had amassed 523 points or an average of 27 points per game. Add to this the St. Peterjs Trophy and that she once led the League. Then consider for a moment Graduation, which caused her downfall .... Hats off to White, McGovern, Cilligan, Welfley, Loftus, Gately, Farrell, Smith, and Duffy. And lest we forget the Manager, Warren Beck, with his assistants Anthony Miller and John Quirke. Ninety nme Swimming ALTHOUGH this year's swimming team held hut two meets, practice was had at least two days every week during the season. Coach John Lyttle, who had trained the Prep swimmers during the past years, also did the honors for this season. Despite the efforts of a strong Fordham pool squad, both the Fieldston and Regis contingents were successful in their tilts with the Rams. Coach Lyttle had quite a few veterans on his squad. Among these were Walter Lynch, a back and breaststroker, and Dennis Wagner, who specialized in the back- strolce and crawl. "Dann Griffin, another fourth year man, handled the 100 yard free style, while "Gerry,' Saggese did the breaststroke. Keran Markey, a Sopho- more, featured the 200 yard crawl and was high scorer for Fordham by a wide margin. In the diving events, "Tex" Kissane and G'Bill" Vitale took care of the utwistsv and ujaczknifesn. Coach John Lyttle and his able natators are to he congratulated for their excellent work throughout the entire season. One hundred ZH Baseball ON APRIL 12th, the l938 Diamond Season of Fordham Prep was opened rather ingloriously when a green Ram nine met Mt. Saint Michael, to suffer their first league defeat-two previous non-league games having been called off because of weather conditions. The Mount would not have scored as it did, had "Pat" Murphy, uzevasa' latest mound corps find, together with ulieftyi' Senerchia, a last year's holdover, been favored with errorless support, but inlield misplay paved the way for the unearned runs. By the second inning, the visitors had sent ten runs over the plate. Behind the airtight pitching of Auster, Mount Ace, the Prep was held to a scant three hits, one being a double by centeriielder, Don Sheridan. ADELPHI BOWS TO PREP Four days later a wiser and more seasoned Prep squad rallied to vanquish Adelphi, in a non-league thriller, with the score ll-5. This time Senerchia, Prepis veteran southpaw, with fine support, went the entire route and was touched for only 6 hits, enabling him to record his first victory of the season. With the score knotted in the ninth frame, the Ramlets battered the home pitcher for six runs in the extra inning to win easily. One hundred one One PREP DOWNS CATHEDRAL The next non-league encounter, this w'ith Cathedral, saw the Prep mace Jackett, Cathedral hurler, for four runs in the second inning, and ride to an easy victory, 5-3. But his mates coming to his rescue, Jackett tightened, and during the next seven innings, held the Prep scoreless. Pat Murphy registering his first varsity start and win, limited the visiting batsmen to six hits, and garnered a nice one for himself. When he masters sufficient control, he should be well able to carry next seasonis pitching burden. ,lack Hayes, Prep receiver, tallied on a Cathedral error, and in the second inning, Bob Maher, Ram shortstop, experiencing his first season on the Prep Varsity, was advanced to second by "Lefty" Perazzo's single. Following a misplay by the visitors, Maher scored and Perazzo was driven home by a clean smash by Murphy, who in turn, scored on Joe Trombettais single. The fourth and final run of the inning was tallied when Jack Hayes pounded a double through right field. In the sixth and seventh, the Cathedral batters managed to find Murphy for two runs. PREP ROUTS IONA On April 29th, the Prep nine, continuing its winning streak, revenged last season's defeat and routed Iona, 14-5. Senerchia, Prep's ace left handed twirler, hung up his second victory, yielding 12 hits. In the second frame Bill Rogers made first on an error and was driven home by Maher's double. But the Prep battery momentarily weakened, allowing Iona to tie the count, when Fitzharris hammered a triple to deep left, and Sexton a single. Hammel, who went the distance for Iona was breezing along, when he lost all control and yielded several more hits and two walks to Maher and Senerchia, who forced in Rogers on a walk. Joe DeNatale doubled with three aboard, sending in Welfiey and Trombetta. Tom Barden, who had singled, advancing Rogers and Maher, was forced in by Trombetta's walk. "Lefty" Perazzo completed the rout by slamming a terrific homer to deep right, which scored Bill Rogers. The Prep seems to have reached its full stride, and at the present writing the prospects for league championship in the C.H.S.A.A., which the Prep formerly held, seem bright enough, in view of the fact that '6Zev" has had to form the lineup from untried material. hundred two ZH , Tennis THIS year, the Prep tennis squad saw the return of practically the entire 1937 roster. 'clackv Reily, who played first singles last year, occupied the same position on the 1938 team. Playing second singles was ulfrankv Lynch, also a veteran racquet wielder, while L'Gerry" Boyle, James Hoskinson and L'Bill', Meade, all members of last year,s squad, alternated at third singles. HFrank7' Lynch and "Jack" Reily constituted the first doubles pair, and "Bill', Meade and James Hoskinson held the second doubles post. Besides these regulars, there were many promising players, including Peterson, O'Toole, 0'Neil, Caskey and Mulqueen. A few words must be said about the 1937 season, during which Peter Buechler, '37, both captained and coached the team. At the completion of last year's schedule, the Rams had won seven of their ten matches. This record dispels all doubt as to Whether the season was a successful one or not. In this year, 44Frank" Lynch led the Prepsters in matches won, defeating seven of his ten opponents. As the RAMKIN goes to press, the Rams have completed but two of their six matches on the 1938 card. They won the first, defeating Regis 44-1, but in the second they lost a close match to Columbia Grammar 3-2. We trust that the 1938 squad will enjoy the same success as did the previous year's team. One hundred three Track Team THIS year, with the return of many veterans in each of the three divisions, Coach 6'Sam" Scanlon once more built up a powerful cinder squad. As the RAMKIN goes to press, the Rams have held but three of their four scheduled interscholastic meets. But the prospects seem to be very good indeed. Of those three meets, the Rams have been successful in two. The first interscholastic track meet was held at Fordham Field, April 30, 1938, when the Maroons lost to Power Memorial Academy by a score of SSV2 to 61Kg. ln this contest, McConville led the Ram Seniors with eight points, with Donelly, William Sullivan and Vitale close at his heels with five points each. Friedlmeier topped the Juniors with four. John Sullivan paced the Midgets with ten points. On the same field, May 7, 1938, in a meet limited to the senior weight division, Fordham Prep won their first interscholastic meet by defeating Adelphi Academy by the score of 416 to Five Rams were tied for high scorer. McConville, Donelly, Drummy, William Sullivan and Vitale each had tive points. Clemens was close behind with four. The Xavier Cadets trailed the Fordham team on May 141, 1938, the final tally 59 to 31. Once more McConville outdistanced the Seniors, this time with ten points. His nearest rival was Clemens with six. Friedlmeier repeated when he led the Juniors with ten points. John Sullivan was the high scorer for the Midgets with five points. One handed four Looking over the results of the season thus far, Michael lVlcConville is away ahead in the Senior division with twenty-three counts. He conquered these points by three successive hrsts in the l00 yard dash, and ai first and a second in two 220 yard events. Other Senior con- testors, who are responsible for the lVlaroon's success, and who are tied for second place in the high score contest. are Donelly, William Sullivan and Vitale. Clemens, score up to date is eleven. Friedlnieier, a veteran runner, leads the Juniors with fourteen points, while John Sullivan tops the Midgets with fifteen counts. The season is not yet over, so all leaders will have to look to their laurels. One hundred five Patrons and Patronesses REVEREND ROBERT I. CANNON, SJ.

If the spoken message lacks the necessary "punch"g if it is not pleasantly and skilfully dressed in language that is appropriate and expressive, then the speaker fails to "put across" to his audience that which is intended. Just as true are these facts in relation to the printed message. It too must have "punch" and "appeal,' and should be Udressedi' in a way that is pleasing to the senses.
