VVE ARE AYVARE OF THE DANGERS THAT THREATEN OUR LAND BUT WITH EYES FIXED FIRMLY ON THAT BANNER OF STARS AND STRIPES THAT HAS NVAVED TRIUMPHANTLY THROUGH THE PERILS AND DESTRUCTION OF SO MANY PREVI- OUS YVARS, WE FEEL GONFIDENT THAT YVITH GOD'S HELP OUR FLAG AND OUR NATION SHALL NOT NOVV HPERISH FROM THE EARTH." REYEREND JOSEPH B. OCONNELL, SJ Prizzcipal DEDICATION Wlzerz Father joseph B. O'Connell, S.l., became Principal of Fordharn Prep last September, he was not entering a school with which he was un- familiar. For in the not too distant past he had listened as a student in Hughes Hall. And last year, he had been an Instructor in the same pleasant edifice. So, as Principal, he has been able to fathom the heart of the Prep boy and under- stand his problerns. For his sympathy, his energy and his sincerity in guiding the Prep during the past year, we, the Senior Class of IQ42, dedicate this issue of the RAATKIN to Father O'C0nnell.

These famous words fully express the deep sentiments we of 4-A feel at this highlight of our lives, graduation from Fordham Prep. Mingled with the joy of graduation is an unmistakable pang of sadness at the thought of ending our pleasant sojourn at Hughes Hall. Mfhen first it was our pleasure to enter the ancient portals of Fordham Prep, we found ourselves divided into two sections, 1-A and 1-B, and during the three years this severance lasted, a fierce rivalry was fully developed between the :'A's,' and the "Bls'l. In our senior year, however, we were combined into one class. Then, through the incorporated efforts of Fr. l60l 1-.Q-. 5 Curley, Fr. Abbott, and Mr. Morgan, our senior professors, we were united in a loyal class spirit. Although the union between the two classes did not exist before senior year, we feel that in enumerating our various achievements we should men- tion them as the accomplishments of the unit 4-A. The honors of Prefect and Supreme Grand Knight, and First Assistant Prefect and First Assistant Supreme Grand Knight were bestowed on Phil Mulcahy and Merrill Sutter respectively. Bill Moylan proved himself to be a more than capable Head Usher of the Sodality, while Bill Barry and Ralph Falciano, in the dual role of Consultor and Grand Knight, proved valuabel aids to Father Tallon. On the athletic field 4-A was well known. Phil Mulcahy was elected co-captain of the football team, and Ed O'Berst headed the baseball team. Many a victory was assured the net and racket men under the shrewd gen- eralship of George McElroy. For three full seasons "Steve" Sutter and Nick Rossano formed a terrific combination at the ends. "Steve" was also one of the mainstays of the varsity basketball team, and Nick, a talented first-baseman, did yeoman work for the diamond squad as did Matty King- StO11, President of the Athletic Council. Mfhen it came to high jumping Dick Corcoran reigned supreme, and John Reilly, a rather quiet individual, proved himself to be a big noise in the 440 yard dash. Bill Moylan not only won a berth for himself on the Prep football team but also joined Phil Mulcahy in forming 4-A's representation on the Maroon swimming team. This pair also held positions on the Rampart. Phil was Sports Editor and Bill reported sports events. Twice we won the interclass basketball tournament, and the names of John O'Neil, Ed Smith, Tom Denning and Bernie Dunn were ever present when the forces of 4-A went forth to battle in the Hughes Hall gym or on the K'Quad,'. Jack Lyons fought his way to the winner's berth in the hand- ball tourneys, while Ed Chevins and Bill Bidermann won the doubles of the handball contests for four successive years. In addition to the above mentioned names the athletic honor roll at the Prep includes and honors Ed Chevins, Joe Campbell, Bill Barry, Bob Novotny and Gene Gibney, all of whom saw action on the gridiron. Camp- bell, Barry and Novotny also held places on the varsity basketball team. Bob Cella is likewise deserving of recognition for his services as manager of the baseball team. Hfhenever there was a question of scholastic achievements, Bernie Dunn, John O'Neil, Jim Quinn and Tony DeFeo were thought of first. John Kennedy, Kodak expert, Bill OlLeary, Ed VValsh, Owen Monaghan, Bill Bidermann and Bob Novotny helped Mr. Morgan in the difiicult task of producing a football program. To record all the sterling qualities of these fine fellows would indeed be dimcult. Their days at Fordham Prep ended, they shall go forth into a particularly troubled world, and relying on the excellent training they have received, they will do their bit to heal this war-festered world of its many infirmities.

SHEA AT LAST, the end of the trail is in sightg our days at the Prep are coming to an end. We entered as wide-eyed fellows fresh out of grammar school, some of us tall but most of us short and all with a sense of humor. The first year we met Latin and Baculus the Centurion, who gave us an idea that there were tougher things ahead. However, we were pulled through by the amazing Mr. Songster, SJ. In second year most of us took Greek and Mr. Blewett, SJ., for a rather bumpy ride. As juniors, despite Mr. Hanish's guidance we really went through the same struggles as Xenephon did in trying to cover l64l the Anabasis. At the same time, Mr. Shea had the difficult task of making Inter- mediate Algebra stick in our minds. The all too notorious Catiline caused trouble both for us as well as the Roman Senate. Yet, with Mr. Reilly and Mr. Kirchner paving the way, we broke the surface and burst into senior year, little the worse for wear. VVe were fortunate in Ending Father Murphy our instructor in the Classics for our senior year and through his hard work and ours, we are now coming forth with a well-rounded education. Mr. Dunne did his best to teach us why apples fall from t1'6CS and Mr. Hession attempted to enlarge our knowledge of the French language. Father Tallon helped us to "Answer YfVisely" in the Religion class and Mr. Shea made us members of King Arthur's round table in the English class. Last, but in no way the least, Father Abbott per- suaded us to appreciate American History with the aid of a certain little wooden club. Now, just a few words about ourselves.. lA7ith the mention of football around the Prep one will always think of Tom Courtney knocking opposing players all over the fieldg the hard tackles of Tom Lenaneg .lim Mitchell who played a great game at centerg and Bob Burns who played in the back field along with Val Spiegle. In the basketball world at the Prep, besides Hil Keating we had Mfarren Cassidy who for a small fellow played a top-notch game of ball. In the swimming pool one was sure to find Harry Carr. Outside, on the cinder path, Joe Miller could be found running in circles, and when Spring came around and baseball took the spotlight at the Prep, we had Tom Lenane, Tom Courtney, Bob Burns, Mike Mulry, Jim Mitchell and Hil Keating giving their strength to Coach Graham's diamond forces. Athletics were not the only activity to which 4-D gave its manpower. Joseph Martin, every year, brought honors to the school and class by his eloquence in oratory and his Hne acting. He again showed his talents in the Rampart and Harry Carr did likewise in the RAMKIN. Jim Conway and Joe Miller could be found doing their part to hold up the money end of our publications. In the class room the witty remarks of Bill Egan always came when most needed to ease the strain of a tough period. The wonder boy of the room, however, was jim Flagg, who before class could get up a Latin translation faster than anyone else. Pat Yanitelli and Ed DeParma were also fine students. Our class possessed Ireland's gift to Fordham, Laz Deeringg the long and short of it in big Jim Graham, a camera fiend, and little Joe Murray. Dan Malanga and Don Murphy, the bosses of the candy store, were our big business men, to- gether with Larry Fata, who was said to be a real politician in his district. Two fellows who were forever astounding us with their knowledge of current affairs were Leo Vizian and Harry Duessell. Fred Seitz amazed us with his knowledge of English grammar, and Ed Luboja would overwhelm us with his new ideas on the use of electricity. We also had, as all classes do, our own Ujitterbugl' in Augie Tolomer, a normal fellow until he hears the beat of a drum. VVell, now it is all over. Four years of hard work have at last brought their reward, and upon completing our education at the Prep we wish to say to the Faculty: You have made us appreciate the value of a true education, to our fellow graduates: We'll be seeing you.

HIZSSION Rizv. IN. T. TALLCJN, MR. R. L. HANISH MR. F. P. IVIORGAN FTER four years of joy and sorrow, success and failure, we the class of 412, Jroudl ste J forth to take our Jlaee amon ' the alumni of Fordham Pre v I Y I I 8 I The joy ol' Iinally attaining that long desired diploma is dimmed by the realiza- tion that we have come to the parting of the ways. All of us must leave Fordham Prep, her traditions and ever helpful faculty, but hardest of all we must leave one another. I66I 'We started First Year in different classes and it was not u11til Seco11d Year that we really came together as a Science class. lYe saw and we conquered Caesar's Gallic YVa1's with the help of the vivacious Mr. Casey. Messrs. Melican, McDonough and Shea took turns trying to convince us that x plus y does 11ot equal 2Xy. H'e started off our Chemistry course literally witl1 a bang. Someone poured the wrong solution into the wrong test tube and the resulting explosion woke up several of the 111ore studious members of tl1e class. In Fourth Year we were introduced to Fr. Murphy and Yirgil. At first we were a little afraid of both. but as the year wore on our fear of the fonner turned to respect, while for the latter we just cultivated a nodding acquaintance. XVe also met Fr. Abbott. who helped us fonn correct opinions on the war. As our days at Fordham Prep became numbered, events happened swiftly. George Hag-man was elected co-president of Senior year. "Bob" Billmeyer, George Hagman and Frank Kane were chosen members of Fr. Shea's select Athletic Council. Carl Reichenwallner won the mythical championship for faithful attendance at "jug". So that posterity may not think we devoted all our time to studies, we must enumerate some of our outstanding extra-curricular activities. 4-E had more than its share of gridiron greats in George Haganan, Frank Kane, "Chrisl' Mcfilade, "joe" Ufalsh and Frank Vita. The "Hag" will long be remembered for the winning pass, which he caught, for a 7 to 0 win over Xavier in 19.10. Frank Kane has been a tower of strength for the past two years in his tackle position. "Chris" MclVade quarterbacked one of the best Prep teams in recent years, and his talented toe rolled up many an extra point. George Dickie more than once brought the spectators to their feet with his mad dashes down the side lines. He sold a lot of programs that way. "XVillie" Hodgson captained all our class teams, in victory and defeat, but mostly in victory. George Marchesi, the co-captain of track in 1941, skipped over the cinders for a city championship in the 50 yard dash. John Braca played a slick first base on the class football team. The silvery tones of John Henry and "Nick" Gargano resounded more than once through the aisles of Collins Theatre as they lent their talents to debates, plays and oratorical contests. "Martyn jordan blew a hot clarinet in the school band while Angelo Alpi divided his artistic talent between tl1e art club and the RAMKIN. "YVillie" Oehrlein was remarkable for his attendance at Prep games. 'jockon Del Gaudio managed to finish his four years with one of the best schol- astic records in the class. No one was safe in class including the teachers from the prying eye of "Ed" Thaete's candid camera. 'flidl' McGettigan with his sharp, Irish sense of humor kept us all entertained. "Joe" Shea often amused us with his thrilling experiences at Bridgeport. Now we have finished our four years together, and we set out upon o11r diverse paths. But whether we go to work or continue our studies at college or enlist in the armed forces of our nation, we shall always remember the friends and friendship we formed at Fordham Prep.

Robert Parrott and Harry Mallon upheld the negative ol' the topic: Resolved: That the Closed Shop Should Be Prohibited by Law. Alfred Henry and Joseph Martin defended the aflirmative. Messrs. Mallon and Parrot were awarded the decision. The judges voted Harry Mallon best speaker of the evening with Allred Henry second. For the first time in live years, a Regis High School debating team was de- feated on their own grounds when Harry Mallon and Robert Parrott took their measure in the early part of the school year. In a return match at Fordham on March 27, the two again overcame the Regis debaters. On Feb. 20, in the Prep Library, Joseph Martin and Alfred Henry were defeated by the Gonzaga debaters in the first of a home-and-home series of debates. Martin and Henry upheld the aflirinative of the Universal Military Training topic. On Feb. 27, John Killoran and Owen Black visited Loyola High School to debate on the same topic. The Loyola debaters, proved to be too much for their opponents and the Prep again tasted defeat. To make up for these losses, on March 20, Parrott and Mallon visited YVashington and defeated Gonzaga debaters in a return match. On March 23, VVayne Mfeisner and Victor Stephens upheld the negative of the Closed Shop topic at All I-Iallows. There was no decision. All in all, it was a creditable season for the Senior Debaters, l30l PARDOW DEBATING SOCIETY MR. FRANCIS M. REDNIOND, SJ. .. .... Moderator CHRISTOPHER RIOONEY .......... .....

T rrenszzrer NDER its new moderator, Mr. Francis M. Redmond, SJ., the Pardow De- bating Society helcl many meetings during the 1941-42 debating season. Debates were held on timely topics of the day, in which four members of the society participated. After each of these, an open forum gave ample opportunity to the members to express their views. The society has been unfortunate in each of its interscholastic debates up to the present. On December 4 the first debate was held with Brooklyn Prep on the question, "Resolved, that every able-bodied male citizen of the United States should have one year full-time military training before attaining the present draft age." Alfred St. Jacques and John Milhaven of Fordham, who upheld the negative, lost by a close decision to their Brooklyn opponents. Following this, Thomas Foley, Edward Coty and George Christ of the Society's first year team travelled to Xavier on February 9 and defended the afliunative of the question of Universal Military Training. The Prepsters gave fine accounts of themselves in their opening speeches but were outfought in the rebuttal and so lost to their more experienced opponents. At this writing a debate has been scheduled with Xavier in which Fordham will take the negative on the Universal Military Training topic. In addition to this, a tournament has been arranged with St. Peter's in Jersey City in which five teams participate. The question is, "Resolved, that air power is superior to sea powerfy The high point of the Society's year, the Prize Debate, held in Keating Hall on March 24, concerned itself with the much discussed Military Training ques- tion. The speakers for the aHirmative were John Ryan and John Milhaven and for the negative, Christopher Mooney and Timothy Mfalsh. In a very close decision the aflirmative was declared the victorious side. John Milhaven was chosen best speaker with Timothy 'Walsh second best. RAMKIN STAFF lidzflm' PIARRY A.

Purcell, has capably furthered the yearly progress of this organization. Mr. Francis P. Morgan connected with the Academy during its past ten years of existence has been invaluable in advising and helping the group. Breaking the former precedent of permitting merely Juniors and Seniors to join the Academy, membership was extended to every year and met with earnest response. Meetings have been held faithfully on alternative Friday evenings in the Prep library. Members who volunteered subjects of their own choosing read expository papers and discussed each phase of the matter they thought inter- esting. These forums l'I16t with popular enthusiasm and have accomplished the aim of the society, to engender an appreciation for the plays of Shakespeare. Some of the year's highlights include an illustrated lecture by the Moderator on the "Life of Shakespeare" and a theatre party which witnessed the Broadway presentation of Maurice Evans in the title role of 'LMacbeth". In the best tradition of the Academy, the year's activities were climaxed with the established Annual Shakespeare Night. This event took place on the 15th of May in the newly decorated college theatre. Harry A. Mallon discussed "Shakespeare and His Audiencew while Vito Pagano chose for his subject "Shakespeare, Master Technician" and joseph Martin dealt with "Shakespeare and His Appeal to the Emotions". At the conclusion of these readings questions were answered by the speakers. Alfred Henry and Nicola Gargano presented as a dramatic interlude two stirring excerpts from "The Merchant of Venice" and "Julius Caesaru.

SllL'TI.SfflllS HE Saint John Berchman's Sanctuary Society was established many decades ago for the purpose of furnishing the religious functions of Fordham Prep with a zealous force of altar boys. Throughout the history of the Prep this Soci- ety has played a most important role, for it has as its end the promotion of spiritual fervor amongst the student body. Recognition of that sacred duty is aptly portrayed by the members of this Society in the fine manner with which each individual performs and carries out his assignments. The spiritual activities of Fordham Prep during the past school year pro- vided the Sanctuary Society with a goodly number of engagements. Each Friday morning the K.B.S. Mass was supplied with capable servers and assistants, while the Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament with the Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, celebrated on the First Friday of each month, was also assisted at by members of the Society. The Mass of the Holy Ghost, held at the beginning of each school year, the Annual Retreat in October, the Sodality Receptions and the Senior Retreat were all functions in which the Sanctuary Society actively participated. l85l THE BAND MR.

Secretary T ALL Prep activities during the past year, as in other years, a small group of talented musicians could be seen, sometimes in snappy maroon uniforms, sometimes in dress coats of the same color, faithfully playing for the beneht of the gathered Prepsters and their friends. X'Vhen, at the football games, enthusiasm began to Hag and the cheering on our side grew weak, who brought back that Prep fighting spirit? The Ford- ham Prep Band, of course,-forming a compact cheerings section, pealing forth the "Ram" and other heartening battle songs, till all the spectators felt the surge ol' returning spirit and joined in with the valiant few. During the "time- outs" the Band played light, cheery tunes to keep high the morale of the team and spectators. ln direct contrast to the brisk songs on the gridiron, the Band played lllally operatic and symphonic selections at such Prep activities as tlIe Senior Prize Debate, the School Play, and Shakespeare Night. Mlhen many prospective Prep- Slt'l's were eating their lunch after the entrance and scholarship examinations, the same untiring group was there giving them Sousa's marches and the ever- popular "Ram", while at the Conuuencement exercises, the graduates marched in lllllt' to the "Coronation March", played by your Band. Constant practise, tireless zeal, and boundless energy, coupled with the splendid leadership of Mr. Frank Stachow, director, and Mr. Wfoll, mod- erator, have combined to make this an organization of which every Prep student can and should be proud. l86l INDUSTRIAL ARTS CLUB MR. PATRICK SHEA .. .... .Uodemtor juris GR.XH.-XXI ..... ..... .. . ., . Shop Foreman HE main activity of the Industrial Arts Club, this year. like that of most America. has been connected with the war effort. Hlhen the military authorities issued a request for plane models, every member put aside his pet project and undertook the task of supplying the necessary models. These models were small, but the difficulty increases as the size of the plane decreases. Twenty planes were cut from bass and pine logs. The prime movers of the model plane activity were George Patton, Louis Guerrieri and XVillia1n Larkin. Since their projects were for use in the training of soldiers and sailors, duty and pleasure were agreeably mixed. The Industrial Arts Club will miss these three june graduates. James Graham. the shop foreman. supervised the tools and material. Joseph Murray surprised the members by the ease with which he undertook his many projects. Edward Luboja furnished us with the example of a quiet, efficient workman. The interest of the undergraduates varied all the way from the construc- tion of birdhouses to the polishing of semi-precious stones. Guy Bosetti displayed the greatest ambition when he undertook the building of a night-table. Thomas O'Sullivan found plenty of exercise in remodelling the potters' wheel. Charles Regan had many onlookers while he was building a boat-in-a-bottle. Richard Lambert brought joy to the heart of the wren family which was fortunate enough to call first on the birdhouse which he constructed. The existence of this Club is sufhcient evidence that Jesuit education is interested in the developments of all the talents a man may possess. l37l DRAMATIC SOCIETY VVILLIANI L. RICILLY, . . .. .

YVe thought a club would be just the thing lor those ol' us who wanted to get a little more out of the course than could be obtained in class. There were dilliculties which we had to meet. The time of meetings pre- sented a problem for a long while but we finally overcame that. Some of the projects we chose were found to be 'ldeacl-ends" and although we learned some- thing from them we had no piece of apparatus to show for our trouble and we are still sutliciently humble to admit that one of our ambitions has been to construct mysterious looking affairs of glass and rubber and have them "work". The end of the year finds "Room 23" bristling with apparatus and decked with pictures all of which give evidence of our enthusiastic reception of this new subject. l90l THE CLASSICAL ACADEMY MR.

Tren.s'z1rer RGANIZED as a supplement to the regular Fourth Year Latin studies, the Classical Academy concentrated during the year on Book IV of Virgil's Aeneid. Under the tutelage of Mr. Joseph A. Trimarco, the members ol the Academy strove to broaden their knowledge of the classics and their background, to increase their vocabulary and to gain practise in translation. The meetings, scheduled for the second and fourth 'Wednesday of each month, were entirely under the control of a student governing body made up of the Academy's officers, John Killoran, Alfred Broderick, John VVilson and James Moreland. One of the objects of the yearys efforts was attained on Saturday morning, March 28, when three of the members, Charles Netter, Robert Parrott and John M7ilson, represented the school at the New York University Latin Sight Trans- lation Contest and competed with the cream of the metropolitan area's schools. As long as this club flourishes at Fordham Prep there will always be some students for whom Latin will not be a dead language. l91l ART CLUB MR. JOHN NICIQINNIQY, . . ,.

Trecisiircr THERE was a really "Great Day for the Irish" of Fordham Prep when more than a month before St. Patricks Day. a host of the sons of the Gael heard about a new-born club which arose with the title, "The Gaelic Culture Club." Mr. Thomas C. Hennessy, SJ., the moderator, proposed that students, especially those ol' Irish extraction, learn the facts and traditions of Irish history. The history was to be mastered primarily through committees devoted to the study of different phases of Eire's past. Later each committee was to divulge its findings to the whole group. Besides. lecturers were to be invited to address the club. An opportunity to learn the Irish language for those interested in the Study was granted through the generosity of Mr. Patrick UI. Flood of Theodore Roosevelt High School, who conducted weekly classes on the fundamentals of Irish grammar. The services of a great galaxy of lecturers was obtained. Maurice Leahy, editor of the Ireland-American Review, talking of Samuel Fergerson's relations to nationalistic Ireland, began the Series. Fr. Francis P. Donnelly, SJ., noted author and educator, described how native Irish music has influenced music writers of other times and places. Dr. -Iames O'Brien of the French Department of Fordham College told ol' the pilgriinages to Loch Derg in northwestern Ireland. Fr. Roger O'Callaghan, SJ., also of the College faculty, narrated his travels through the country of his fathers. Many others have talked to the club, but space forbids that we tell more of them. The club has contemplated and realized a library all its own. The American Irish His- torical Society donated some hooks and gradually a workable collection was had, through a small, but constant, stream of donors. i95l CAMERA CLUB REV. ALFRED A.

In the early part of the second term it was decided to lorm an organization ol all the so-called "Shutterbugs", who are cer- tainly prevalent in the Prep. Although still in its infancy, the Fordham Prep Camera Club, under the able guardianship ol' the Reverend Allred A. Purcell, Sal., has made itself recog- nized in all school activities where its members and their cameras are always present. At the lirst meeting thirty-six various and assorted fans were present. The second meeting really started the business when the ollicers were chosen. For the next several meetings the question ol' a location lor a darkroom in the Prep itsell' was discussed. Mr. 'joseph Duke, has permitted the Club the use of the Chemistry laboratory equipped by the members themselves with blackout curtains. By the time the RAMRIN goes to press the lirst public exhibit ol' pho- tography will be ready. 'I'he plan is to have the Prepsters themselves vote for their favorite photographs.

Their heroism even in defeat is a presage of certain victory. TH li RA M LETS FOOTBALL LUMNI-After weeks of training and practice, the Fordham Prep foot- ball squad started its season with an impressive victory over the men of former Prep gridiron fame, by a score of 14-O, on Saturday, October 11. Although outweighed man for man, the plucky Maroon eleven first showed its niettle in the hfth minute of the opening quarter, when Ed Sansa broke through the opposing line to block Tom Moran's punt. The big center quickly recovered the ball and went over for the initial score of the season. Chris Mcikfade, calling the signals for the Rarnlets this year, booted the ball between the uprights, and the Prep led 7-o. Bobby Rehrn, filling injured Toni Courtney's place at fullback, was responsible by his spectacular passing for the next tally, when he fired a strike to Merrill Sutter in pay dirt in the second stanza. MclVade again converted. Although Courtney and Phil Mulcahey were absent because of injuries, the Prep began the season with a flying start. pool Iona-A week later victory again came to the Maroon, this time in the waning moments of a hard fought struggle with Iona Prep. Captain Tom Courtney, starting his first contest, drilled his way by bull-like tactics to the one yard stripe with the aid of some fine runs by Bill Riehl, and then plunged over with three minutes to play. Mc- YVade kicked the extra point, thus making his rec- ord three for three. This game was excellent from the spectatorls viewpoint, for the teams were evenly matched and fought bitterly for the whole sixty minutes. Final score: Prep 7, lona o. All Hallows--Another close contest, the battle with the Blue and YVhite on October 25 was settled on the very first play from scrimage. After McWade had returned the kickoff to midfield, Bill Riehl took a double reverse from Tom Courtney and travelled the rest of the way unmolested. Prepsters rejoiced, foreseeing a rout, but All Hallows got right down to the business of defense, to keep the final score 6-o for the Rarnlets Riehl carries ball for long run against All Hallows third win in as many starts. Brooklyn Prep-jupiter Pluvius conquered on November 1, and the Bronxville tussle was cancelled, so that the Prep eleven on the following Netter off on wide sweep around Brooklyn Prep line 11011 Saturday was more eager than ever to tackle their foes from Brooklyn, and conse- quently threw them for a loss, by a score of 13-6, due largely to the fine spirit and excellent blocking of the men up front. Charlie Net- ter capitalized on this sup- port, running circles around the Brooklyn lads. How- ever, it took a trick play, to deceive the defensive back- field, and to draw first blood. Tom Courtney tossed a short lateral to Chris Mc- Wade, who heaved a thirty yard pass to halfback Riehl for the counter. The quarterback then kicked the extra point. Later in the game. the Prep's spotless record was marred when Bricklield, the Crown Heights end. stole the ball from Charlie Netter as he was diving olf tackle, and scampered sixty yards for the score. But the Maroon was not to be outdone and two minutes later, Tom Lenane grasped the pigskin out of Koppe's arms and raced to the goal. Mount St. Miel1ael-l7ol- lowing the splendid victory over Brooklyn Prep, the Ramlets invaded the realm ee of Mount St. Michael on November 15, with high hopes of victory. However, they encountered a surprisingly superior Mount squad, and were definitely Kane to rescue as Brooklyn izrcklers surround NCUCI' trounced. 25-7. The winners, displaying a crushing ground attack, gave the Prep few chances to score. But Bob Relun, sophomore backer-up who made a name for himsell in the Alumni victory, climaxed a seventy yard drive of passes in the waning moments of the game by passing to Ed Chevins for the Preps lone counter. McQuade again kicked the ball between the up- rights, and finished the scoring for that fatal day. Xavier-The season ended in a blaze of glory with the annual Turkey Day festival, although the Prep went down in defeat at the hands of one of the 1I1OSt powerful Cadet elev- ens in years. The Mike Dunn trophy, which the Maroon has cherished for live years, slipped from its grasp, but only after a val- iant fight with the highly touted Xavier men. Grass- berger, their fullback, began the scoring by booting a held goal from the twenty- iive yard stripe, early in the Nil f is 1, U., .. l iff opening period. Then the most spectacular plav QE Riehl blitzes the Xavier line nozj many seasons! Charlie Netter, senior halfbaek, took a Xavier punt on his own live yard line and raced through the entire Cadet team. The Prep had a few moments of glory and led at the half, 6-3. But the powerful Xavier squad was not to be overcome and droye to a touchdown early in the fourth stanza, neyer relinquishing the lead thereafter, although they were hard pressed by the Prep. Thus ended one of the most thrilling football seasons in the history of Fordham Prep, and one not soon to be forgotten. THE FIRST TEAM I 1031 BASKETBALL HE rains came and so did Prep basketball Saturday, December 13, as the Maroon quintet, playing its initial game under tl1e tutelage ol' Coach Robert Reinacher, turned back an aggressive Cathedral Prep live 38-29. The Ramlets forged ahead in tl1e second period and thereafter maintained a comfortable lead with Bill VVlCll1l21lCI' pacing both squads with twelve points. The inexperienced Prepsters boldly invaded Xavier's home grounds on the following Monday, but tl1e Cadets drubbed them to the tune of 37-20. The fortunes of the Ramlets rose again three days later as they easily trounced St. Nlosephls School for tl1e Deal' 52-27. WlCllT12llC'f, Miggins and Schill- ing with 13, 11 and 9 points respectively, led the Maroon. The coming of the new year brought on the Hrst C. H. S. A. A. contest with Rice, Saturday, January 10, but it also brought on defeat 27-20, despite Wicl- maier's eight points which gave l1im high scoring honors for the third time. Xavier continued its mastery over the Prepsters in the St. Peter's College Tournament, january 14, outscoring the fighting Ramlets 50-39. Tl1is encoun- ter found tl1e Prep at its best thus far, with Tom Gorman pouring in twelve points, but even this was not enough to halt tl1e basket-conscious downtowners. A last period drive fell four points short as the visiting Prep succumbed to All Hallows 29-25, January 20. Iona Hl2lClC it tl1ree league setbacks in succession, Saturday, January 24, trouncing its hosts 31-23. "Tex" Daly tallied seven n1arkers for the losers. 11041 The next Tuesday found Mt.

The Ramlets reached a new low January 31 when they bowed to the Kelly- Green of Manhattan Prep 31-27. Closing the first half of the season, the Prepsters showed a marked improve- ment but nevertheless suffered their sixth league loss, this time to St. Simon Stock 39-30. The Ramlets led at halftime 20-12. A 15-4 first half advantage stood up in face of a fierce last period Blue and White surge and the Prep scored its first league victory by topping All Hallows 32-26, Saturday, February 7. The most exciting game played at the Prep in many a year ended in an overtime setback by league-leading St. Simon Stock, 40-39. Gorman and Miggins kept the Prep in the game by scoring 9 and 8 points respectively. The second place Rice team turned back the Prep 42-34 as McCannan of the victors tallied 18 points, February 17, to 011ce again dim the Maroon hope. Manhattan Prep attempted to re- peat its previous victory over the Ma- roon, Saturday, February 21, but they could not cope with the furious on- slaught of the invading forces as the Ramlets triumphed 40-30. Larry Mig- gins poured in fifteen point to top Rice Game-XV011 by Rice bgth gquadg, The Maroon made it two in a row by downing Iona Prep 31-20 on the loserfs court, Tuesday, February 24. A large crowd turned out Saturday, February 28, for the last game of the season b11t Mt. St. Michael spoiled the fun by clipping the Maroon array 33-28, despite Larry Miggins' 14 points. The sincere thanks of the entire Prep is due to those seniors who have played their last basketball game in a Prep uniform. They are "Steve" Sutter, Bill Barry, Dick Schilling, "I-lil" Keating, W'arren Cassidy, Tom Hory, and Bill Lutz. "So long and thanks a lot." l105l BASEBALL N April 14, Coach "Zev" Gral1an1 sent forth his 1942 Fordham Prep baseball squad for its Iirst encounter. This year's diamond combine consisted of only a few veterans, but a line crop olf promising newcomers furnished an excel- lent groundwork for teams now and in the future. On Tuesday, the 14111, the Xavier Cadets came to Fordham Field to give the Maroon their Iirst test. But the caissons didn't go rolling along and Xavier bowed to the Prep nine 5-4. VVith George Hamilton pitching the Iirst live frames, giving two runs and striking out nine, and Frank Murphy twirling the last two frames the Maroon was never headed. After a scoreless Iirst inning the Ramlets let go with a barrage of base-hits which accounted for hve runs. Tom Courtney led off with a single, was advanced to the keystone sack on a single by Glenn Smyth. After Tom McClintock went down via the strikeout route, Courtney scored the initial ru11 on a single by "Stretch" Hamilton. Tom Foley followed with a single, driving Smyth across. Frank Langdon forced Foley and then big Larry Miggins knocked in Hamilton, Lutz and Langdon with a tre- mendous two-base hit. Eddie Sansa then ended the inning with a Hy out. In the fourth, Hamilton allowed two runs. Frank Murphy came in, held the Cadets scoreless in tl1e sixth, but let in two runs in the seventh as a result of walks and two errors. The next day Regis came to Fordham and handed tl1e Prep its first setback by a score of 2-1. Hanrahan, the ace of the Regis twirlers, let down the Maroon 11061 N 'AQQN with four hits and struck out fifteen. Hilarv Keating, who was the losing pitcher, pitched almost as well but did not have quite enough to best the Regis star. He gave up six hits and set down eight of the Regis batters on strikes. The Ramlets scored first, tallving one run in the fourth. Miggins batted in the run with one of tl1e few hits the Prep obtained. In the sixth the bovs from Regis bunched a walk and some hits which accounted for two runs which clinched the game for them. The Prep threatened in the sixth and seventh, but Haniahan. almost untouchable with men on base, bore down and prevented further scoring. Friday of the sa111e week saw Saint Simon Stock come to Rose Hill a11d the Prep iacked up their first league victoia' with a fifteen hit attack, 13-7. Behind most of the game the Maroon scored seven times i11 tl1e fifth to clinch the game. The Prep took a 1-o lead in the fnst frame. In the third St. Simon knocked 'iStretch" Hamilton out of the box with four runs. Frank Murphv went i11 and there was no further scoring in the inning. St. Simo11 tallied twice more in the fourth. In the last half of this frame, the Prep scored four times making the count 6-5. St. Simon added another in the fifth. Then the Maroon went to town. Exploding seven hits which brought in the SHIIIC number of runs they drove the enemy pitcher from tl1e box. The feature of this bombardment was a double bv Frank Murphv, the Prep pitcher, who drove in two of the runs. The sixth saw the Ramlets get another tallv to further insure the victorv and with Murphv twirling neatly, St. Simon did no further scoring. These three games are all the Year Book has to report before going to press but from them there is eveiv indication that Prep baseball this vear will be memorable.

Every afternoon under the excellent tutelage of Coach Scanlon, the spike-men can be seen sprinting about the Fordham oval. Despite the loss of such stellar performers, as Joe Flood, Mike Sheahan, and Ed Gilleran, Mr. Scanlon still looks forward to a successful season relying both on the experienced men from last year's squad and the hopeful aspirants of this year. The teams which the Prep engages this season are Power Memorial. Fielclston, All I-Iallows, Mount St. Michael, Iona, and to conclude the current season the C. H. S. A. A. championships, Much of the point-scoring rests upon the shoulders of Hart and Cody in the mile, Dilger and I-Iagman in the half, "Red" O'Neill in the quarter, McCall in the loo yard, Mztrchesi in the midget loo yd.-clash, George Hagman high jumper and l'lCl'l'2ll'l with the shot-put. Since the track team this year lacks incitlier ability nor optimism, a successful season is everyone's expectation. 5108.1 SWIMMING SWIMMING this year at the Prep was rather on the dark side. Hard hit at the start of the season by losses through February graduation the team never quite lived up to the high standards of last year's squad. The First meet found the Prep facing a strong Fieldston team with little or no practice due to the late examinations. However the Prepsters put up a great fight but ended up on the short end of a 45-25 score. T he next encounter was with the Kelly-Greens of Manhattan who avenged their last year's defeat by turning the tables on the Ramlets 41-23. Regardless of its disastrous season the Prep had some fine swimmers and sure point scorers in Jack Repko, Harry Carr, Tom O'Brien and Dennis Sheil. Here's hoping that next year will End the Prep once again on top. H091 TENNIS SOMETHING new has been added! The announcement ol a Catholic School Tennis League greeted Prep racqueteers in a meeting of candidates, preli- minary to the actual tryouts. The league is divided into two groups, Manhattan- Bronx and Brooklyn. The former includes the Prep, All Hallows, Power Memo- rial, Mt. St. Michael and Iona. The Ramlets, schedule for the 1942 net season is as follows: April 28-All Hallows . . . . . .Away May 1-Power ........ . . .Away May 4-Mt. St. Michael . Home May 8-Iona ......,. . . .Away May I5-lflflfl .......... . . .Home May 18-Mt. St. Michael .. ...Away May 22-All Hallows . . . . . .Home May 25-Power ....,.....,................,........ Home At this writing, the personnel ol' the squad has not yet been ascertained and with only Toni Hory and Doug Hallock returning from last year's squad the berths are wide open. However, judging from last. year's tournament, those who have the best chance in addition to these two are George Nelson, Mfayne VVeis- ner, Dick Schilling, Bob Parrott, Vic Stephens, Harry Schum and Peter Jowise. It would be quite a distinction for the Prepsters to come out on top in this initial season ol' the league and we wish them the best ol' luck in their endeavors. ,- - V. , ,V c,,.- '-ff w 47 11101 l ATHLETIC COUNCIL QSept.-Jang NV.
