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

to you all. You, our parents, in giving us

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
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
ROBERT T. STEWART
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
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
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
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.

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
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

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
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
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
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.

G6 REAT Oaks from lillle acorns grow." 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,
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
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
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.

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.
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.

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
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
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. Nolin was elected as Co-captain of the
nelevenn. Bomeisl beat Xavier almost single-handed in the Prepis great football
tussle on Thanksgiving Day. February found Hayes, Nolin and Wagner chosen
for the Athletic Council. Saggese, Wagner, Griiiin and Jordan excelled as Prep
natators. McGovern took top honors in the Prep foul-shooting contest. "Bill"
DeMucci was one of the mainstays of the track team, Dirummy, Jordan and Ranieri
rounded out our fleet-footed representatives.
Now the future has us worried. On a night in June, twenty-one of us will
receive our passports out of the Prep. The days at Fordham contain many memories
for us. Our bodies may leave Fordham but our spirit will still linger within its
portals. Our memoirs at Fordham will enable us to perform every deed for

IT IS of primary importance that students inculcate good habits in their spiritual
life. 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

THE record of weekly Sodality attendance was most eneouragirxg. The meetings
were alternated: One a spiritual meeting and the other a round-table discussion.
Many members manifested a keen interest in the general topic of discussion for
the termg that is, '6lVIoral Conditions as they are today and how to counteract them
as Sodalistsfi Various members of the Prep Faculty addressed the Soclalists at
the bi-weekly Spiritual meetings. '
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. The entire pro-
ceedings were under the auspices of the Central Oliice of the Queenis Work, the
National Sodality Organization. Heading the delegation was lVIr. Michael F.
Kavanagh, SJ., and representing the students were Joseph Mulligan, Edward
Wands, Otto Schneider, and Richard Burgi.

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.

THE end and purpose of the Student Council is to enkindle a greater school spirit
' among the students of Fordham Prep. 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,

AFTER a strenuous series of eliminations four men were selected for the Prize
Debate on the question of Unicarneralism. The affirmative, upheld by Blaise
A. Pasquarelli and Robert T. Stewart defeated the negative team of Albert E. Helm
and Walter A. Lynch. Robert T. Stewart was judged the best speaker. 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. O'Connor and Robert T. Stewart. ln the latter debate Hans
Stolten and Walter A. Lynch turned in an excellent performance.
At the elections for the spring term Walter A. Lynch was elected Presidentg
Hans Stolten, Vice-President and James Hoskinson, Secretary. A month later

Soon, however, the fortunes of the Prep debaters changed. Lawrence C.
0'Connor and Walter A. Lynch took third place in the Dwight School Forensic
Tournament. 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. Pasquarelli and Walter A. Lynch defeated the
Dwight School, the winner of the Dwight School Forensic Tournament.

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

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
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.

lSl'l'0liS to the shop ol the lndustrial Arts have called attention to the
diversity of occupations followed by the students. This diversity is based
on the Jesuits' solieitude for the individual diflerences of their charges.
These differences are satislied by allowing the student to undertake projects
of his own choice. He learns as he tries to solve the difficulties which are in-
herent in every undertaking. The more ambitious the undertaking so much the

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

N SlQP'lll'lMBER l937, the Clee Club was reorganized. 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. J. lillattery, the moderator.

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

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.
"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.
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
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
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. Stewart, Albert E. Helm,
Joseph P. Castellanos, William R. lVlcManus, Paul A. Murtaugh, Robert S. Mullen,

The 1937 Football Season
INITIATING the 1937 football season, the Fordham Prep eleven broke even
with the All Hallows squad 12-12. 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
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'-
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
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!
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
"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
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
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
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.

CH MPL IN ST DIO
the printed message
the spoken message
may be convincing or not. 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.
Our printing is "dressed" in taste that has that "appeal." "Can we
help you?" We can.
