he spirit of Jesuit education is a
spirit that trains leaders,-Catholic men who will
go out to light and uphold and, if need arise, die
for the principles they have learned. Such a spirit
demands a full growth of all the faculties of body,
mind and soul. This book sets down the history of
this growth in spirit for the class of '46, In its
pages you will find a list of varied activities, de-
signed to perfect physical, and mental growth,
teachers, who train the intellect, and spiritual
guides who teach their students the Way, the
Truth and the Life. Many changes take place in a
school, changes that bring new teachers and new
courses, but the spirit of Jesuit education and the
spirit of Fordham Prep,-the wisdom, integrity,
courage and love of God which make the real
Catholic gentleman-these will never change, but
will live forever.
kindly and popular member of the
Faculty has left the active teachers' list of Ford-
ham Prep and returned to Fordham University.
Even though his stay was limited to two years,
he left a lasting impression on all those who were
fortunate enough to enjoy the inspiration of his
guidance. Those who studied under him will long
remember his ability to make his subject inter-
esting, his unfailing good humor and his priestly
zeal which edified and at the same time charmed
all. Worthy of particular mention is his power, of
making you feel at home and also of speaking
from the pulpit in a direct and effective way. Be-
cause of all these qualities, we shall not soon for-
get this beloved teacher, and as a tribute of our
esteem and affection, the class of 1946 respect-
fully dedicates this Year Book to

FAVORITE COLLEGE - FORDHAM
CHARLES F. RUDOLPH
Charley Rudolph left the Prep in 1944 and
joined the armed forces of the United States
to help them with a war against powers that
fought in the name of tyrany and oppression.
Charley is now back with' us and is due to finish
his course and graduate in June. In this tribute
we would like to make him a symbol of all the
Fordham men who fought and died that the
ideas for which education at Fordham stand,
might be perpetuated and endure. Let this
page commemorate all who fought in the war
and stand as a mark of our gratitude and ap-
preciation for what they have accomplished.
THE FORDHAM RAM
Hail men of Fordham, hail,' on to the fray,'
Once more our foes assail, in strong array,
Once more the old Maroon, waves on high,
We'll sing our battle songg we do, or die.
With a Ram, a Ram, a Ram for Victory,
A Ram, A Ram A Ram for loyalty,
To the light to the fight,
To win our Iaurels bright.

June 13, 1946 . . . The achievement- of a goal whose quest be-
gan in September, 1942 . . . It is graduation day . . . It was a long
road and a tiring one, yet it was filled with joy, pleasure and good
fun . . . Who, on that rainy September morning almost four years
ago, dared to hope for a day now accomplished? . . . Yet the day
when we can stand on the platform in the University Gymnasium,
diploma in hand, has come . . . It is time to say good-bye to
Our first day at Rose Hill! . . . We travel from Astoria, from
Westchester, from Englewood, and from University Avenue, and
standing in the rain outside ivy-covered Hughes Hall, begin to
form friendships which will last for all four years, and perhaps
for a life time. We are the Class of '46, L
During "Schola Brevis" we come to realize the only school is
the Prep . . . Soon the days begin to slip away and marks for
the first report are closing . . . So we flaunt our- first and second
honor cards before our classmates while the customary few. are
bravely managing to hide away the well-known "Hunks," ,Q s
Valerie. Secon Nugee
The secret of Latin in its fundamental state is unfolded to us
by Fr. DeRoss O'Connor, SJ., by Mr. Wolf, SJ., and by Mr. Red-
mond, SJ .... We learn' that the proper way to address a scholastic
is "Mister" . . . Mr. 'McKinney, SJ., teaches in the Problems of
Democracy class that "Birds sing and logs float because God made
them that way" . . . Mr. Melican and Mr. Lyttle help us get our
"x's" and "y's" straight . . . Meanwhile shoe leather is being worn
off and the significance Qof a new word is impressed on our first
year minds as we "go roaming in the gloaming" in Father Shea's
jug line . . . The fact that some enjoyment was being derived
from jug was evidenced by the overwhelming walking majority
of freshmen over other years . . . Crime does not pay!
. . . We start to assert ourselves and forget about 2:40 as the
end of our school day . . . We begin at once to join the numerous
clubs and activities about the school , . . Gene Weir plays basket-
ball with the JayVees while Abele, Bendernagle, Wilkinson, Jen-
sen and O,Connor star on the Minims . . . Lyon, Marshall, Mc-
Nulty, Gordon and Ed Ryan argue continually for the Pardow
Debating Society . . . In J.V. football, Lomio, Bowen, Simermeyer,
Link and Kain made the team . . . A fighting 1D team wallops 2D
in Inter-Class Football and becomes Champ of the Junior Circuit
. . . Cunnion, McEvoy and Murray get their names in the Ram-
part "masthead" and Dick Gordon writes a new column, "Fresh
Remarks" . . . And who can forget Dick as Quimby, the hayseed,
in "Seven Keys to Baldpate" or Randy Dixon, Tom O'Malley and
John McEvoy as star tankmen, or Lynn Marshall in the Junior
Prize Debate with his immortal "Keep OH The Grass" quote? . . .
Our first Ramkin dance finds the first year men escorting many a
lovely "cousin" to the Keating Hall Cafeteria . . . January means ex-
amination time and we cram for the first of many times . . . Exams
roll over and past us and the school manages to collect a few dol-
lars here and there . . . Then Spring rolls around and with it the
most welcome season of baseball . . . Bendernagle found covering
the second sack for the JayVee and a promising young sub named
Eddie Abele gets his share of grass cutters and liners . . .
Comes May and with it the annual outing "up the creek" to
Indian Point . . . Lucky boat is the "Peter Stuyvesant" . . . A
glorious day, but then the morrow brings the algebra exam and
with it repercussions from excessive imbibing in frankfurters and
pop . . . The examinations are finally completed and then-vaca-
tion, oh time of joy!
But the bright September morn rolls around once more and
strangely enough, some of our dearest friends "have not been
invited to return" . . . But there is no time for sympathy for those
fallen by the wayside . . . "Poundest thou thy book, lest thou thy-
self be cast away" . . . To help us start the year with the proper
outlook, Father Kennedy, SJ., conducts the annual retreat in
October, 1943 . . . Many, many changes take place in the Prep
but Father O'Connell and Father Shea still manage a firm grasp
on the helm . . . Dom "Twice around the Quad" Principe hears
his Uncle Sam calling and enrolls in the Navy where he is a regu-
lar starter on the Sampson eleven . . . His successor is a new
Fordham hero oi' the previous season-Coach Frank McIntyre
takes over, and capably too. .

. . '. In the classroom, we pass into the hands of new guides and
meet new pitfalls in the path of knowledge . . . Father Henderson,
SJ., directs the destinies of one section while the others are taken
in hand by Mr. Hennessey, SJ., and Mr. Rushmore, S.J .... Gaul
is once more dissected into three parts before the eyes of a slightly
interested second year class . . . Caesar gets his biggest opposition,
not from the Galli or Germani, but from Coach McIntyre as the
call for football rends the air . . . Mr. Hanish drafts for service
LiPani, Link, Morrow, Bowen, Simermeyer, Kain and O'Leary
. . . "O.L." also ably represents Second Year in the field of tennis
with a smashing back hand stroke . . . .
We enjoy our second Ha1lowe'en Party between groans at the
antics of the "moronic upperclassmenw . . . Ryan, Marshall and
Nathan get their premier crack on the debating teams and prove
themselves worthy by compiling a neat string of victories . . .
Ryan and Marshall summarily installed as officers . . . In Decem-
ber, we meet up with Father Matthews, SJ., at the ,Latin Club
meeting, where he speaks on St. Leo the Great . . . Second Year's
infiltration system was working everywhere . . . The season of
layups and foul shots arrives and Ed Abele, Jim Bradley and
Frank Wilkinson come into their own.
. . . With the coming of mid-terms there are more casualties,
but the great majority survive and look forward to the F.l'.:ter
holidays-certainly nothing in Lent to look forward to . . . Several

classes are switched around as a result of the exams and Kiernan,
O'Connor and Cranley suddenly find themselves "promoted"
. . . Ed Ryan and Don Kiley finish primus and secundus in the
Junior Elocution Contest . . . By degrees, Mr. Rushmore, S.J.,
brings 2D to civilized ways of living by taking them through the
Gallic wars . . . Sy Candeloro sells the most bonds in the school
drive . . . Junior Prize Debate finds Nathan, Kiley, Lavery, Mar-
shall, Ryan, and McNulty discussing the question to the point of
fisticuffs to the accompaniment of a rolling crescendo from the
audience . . . Second Year meets Father Zegers, SJ .... Under the
direction of Father O'Connor, SJ., 2C shows some signs of initia-
tive by producing their own class paper, the "Videre," a monthly
affair . . . Ed Ryan sits in the editorial chair and Frank Cunnion
does the "art" work, while Lynn Marshall and Randy Dixon do
some real work, producing copy, printing and distributing the cop-
ies . . . In the meantime Al Lyon receives honorable mention in
the N.Y.U. Latin Contest . . . Once more the nightmare of exams
is endured and June comes upon us . . . The baseball season closes
and again the second year stars are Ed Abele and Jim Bender-
nagle . . . Fortunately for Prep opponents, it was the latter's last
full year at the Prep, as he was claimed by the Armed Forces dur-
ing the summer and still rides the waves for the Navy . . .
Now the start of our second half as the pale green leaves once
more darken to the light brown of autumn . . . We renew old
acquaintances and, while some continue their French course with
Messrs. Zaccagnino and O'Sullivan, the others learn the meaning
of "Achtung!" from Mr. Hanish . . . The lost works of Cicero, Ovid,
and "Sappho" are unfortunately found by Fr. Zegers, SJ., Mr.
McGraw, SJ., and Mr. Finnerty, SJ., much to the discomfort
of poor Catiline . . . While most help Mr. Bauer, SJ., make gun-
powder in Chem Lab, the usual band of brave stalwarts delve into
the language of the land of the Pelopponesus.
. . . Once more football takes the spotlight and the students . . .
Dolan, McManus, McDermott, Link, Kain, LiPani, and Callahan
up there with the varsity . . . Dolan voted All-City end . . . Provi-
dence escapade sees Kiley and Boylan reaching the Rhode Island
countryside on 51.02 Qstrictly from hungerj . . .
Another Hallowe'en party and that beautiful ballad, "One
Alone" is sung most beautifully by Tom Egan falonej . . . 4A
mourns Ernie Milde's call to bell-bottoms . . . Don Murray takes
first in Ecclesiastical Latin Academy's essay contest . . . Various

order in Greek class as O'Mal1ey gives out with the verb forms.
. . . Christmas plays see Ryan starring in the traditional tableau
while Cunnion, Gordon and Murray translate their Way through a
hectic Christmas Eve in the Battle of the Bulge . . . Needless to
say, constant firing of revolvers on stage alarms First Year men
. . . Gerry Creamer arrives in January and helps the Greek class
plow through the wars of Xenophon . . .
Again the mid-terms take their toll . . . Only the back of the

volt anticipated as we discover that senior rings won't be delivered
until September . . . Exams are suddenly on us and past us . . . A
few more drop, while Uncle Sam calls others, including Dick
Gordon . . . And finally, with a sigh of relief, we cease being Juniors,
and after three years of toil, step into the Promised Land-Fourth
Year . . .
July and August of 1945 disappear, oh! so quickly, into the
sands of time, and the somewhat depleted, but nevertheless high-
flying Class of '46 returns for the last time to trod the corridors
of Hughes Hall . . . "Captain Eddie" Abele takes over as Senior
Council prexy, assisted by the "Big Fourj' Dolan, Bradley, Mc-
Manus and LiPani . . . Father Campbell arrives to put 4C and D

but so "literally,' . . . Nine diehards daily stone Homer in Father

his rectangular parallelipipeds.
In no time at all, Fourth Year has "extra-curricular activities
situation" well in hand. During the first week of school, the lure
of shoulder pads and tackling dummies calls a countless host of
seniors to the colors. Dolan, Link, Burger, McDermott, Kain,
Lomio, and Callahan spearhead the Prep attack, which strangely
bogs down after two quick victories . . . Despite injuries to LiPani,
McManus and Perry, Prep battles opponents yard for yard, and
push two six-pointers over the last goal stripe against the "invinci-
ble Mount" . . . Capt. Tom Dolan wins well-deserved Outstanding

have the Peter Stuyvesant again and Indian Point proves as en-
joyable as ever . . . Many lighter moments in Prep-Faculty game,
renamed the "Jet-Jobs vs. Covered Wagons" . . . A.C. handles
everything in its own inimitable manner . . . And the return,
when the soft strains of romantic melodies assisted immeasurably
in the transfer of many senior rings to fair hands . . . And then
the Provinces! One after another, down the line . . . But we laugh!
laugh! and pass through amid the deafening cheers of the over-
joyed Faculty . . . And then the prom, Graduation, and summer.
But let's reminisce! . . . Will anyone ever forget Bill Lucca's
"Dip it in water, Mister!" in Physics class . . . or the constant
remonstrances of "Quiet!" and "Yer just a wise kid!" . . . or Father
Matthews' "That's all you have to do-a blue book and a fountain
pen filled with ink!" . . . or former tank-expert Rudolph's rabid
interest in Fourth Year Physics . . . or the baseball "discussions"
with Eddie Abele in Father Tallon's oiiice and the "dugout" . . .
or those P.T. basketball games where bodies were trampled under-
foot with wild abandon . . . or Frank Cunnion's "fan mail" from
MSU, not to mention the mysterious perfumed letters to Vic
'Perry from Allentown . . . But our memories could go on "ad
. . . And so, this is it, fellows! . . . And as we say in Japanese,
"Sayonara"-farewell . . . Our four years tenure of office is ended
. . . We, like the tired old man with the Scythe on December 31,
are on the way out . . . And, in the same way, a glory-bound little
tyke called the Class of '47 is moving up to the throne we're ab-
dicating . . . Remember, fellows, when we're the proverbial "old
and gray," when "each separate dying ember wrought fnot pres-
ent tensej its ghost upon the floor," let our thoughts return in
fancy to Rose Hill, to Hughes Hall, to the dear old gang we knew
and loved so well!

When September of the year of Our Lord, 1945 roused the men of Fordham
from their summer dreams and bade them pick up their text books and "with
satchel and shiny, morning face" creep like snails unwillingly to school, it found
among the number of its obedient servants the new Third year class of Fordham
What does it take to make up a good Third year man? Patience, and we shall
learn to mix the ingredients. First of all, our members must denounce their old way
of life as "ornery" Second year men and buy a Cicero. This is the hard year, but in
September we are laughing.
Before the mixing of ingredients can even be begun we must be separated into
classes-no sane teacher in the world would take on this mob all at once. At Collins
on the first day this is done in short time and we are sure that anyone standing
near the Prep will note that the approaching three groups are Sections C, D, and E
because of the intelligence beaming out of every face. Each group is led by its
own teacher. In C, it is Mr. Joseph Finnerty, SJ. at the front, and he carries a
Latin grammar, a Prose and Poetry and a Cassilly. What else can that mean?
Mr. Timothy Curtin, SJ. has the same books for D and Fr. Hartnett, SJ. is going
to tutor E in Latin, English and Religion. We are also sure that Mr. Melican
peeked out as we passed the second floor, to get a look at his three new classes of
prospective Algebra genii Cget that Latin pluralj
The first few da s
y we don't even see our other teachers but the meeting has to
come eventually. The scientists enter the lab and meet their chemistry teachers,
Mr. John J. Bauer, SJ., and Dr. Leo Yanowski. Some fifteen foolish "chemistry
dodgers" enter another room and meet their Waterloo. Fr. O'Connor, SJ. intro-
duces them to Greek and they all shake, but not hands. A few smart fellows took
a study period. In Modern languages the patient Mr. Hanish is going to try once
again with the German students, while Mr. O'Sullivan, Mr. Hession and Mr. Somer-
ville, S.J. will "parlez vous francais" the French electives.

And while on the subject of classes we will just look at the way the officers line
up in the elections. In C, Jim Daly is President, Ned Curran, Vice President, and
J ack Groh, Treasurer. In D, Tom Guerriero is President, then Fred Dilger is Vice
Presidentg J oe Armas, Secretary, and yes,-they're trusting Halligan with the
money. In E Ernie Pfeufer is President, Bob Henning is Vice President, Bob
Sheehan, Secretary and Greg Schultz, Treasurer.
No matter where we come from, whether it is the Bronx, Westchester, Far
Rockaway, New Jersey or Queens, we all seem to get here on time. In fact some
came up two weeks ahead of time to start practicing with the football team. When
the football season starts, we see a large number of us on the team. Jim Daly quar-
terbacks the squad for the whole season, with Bob Henning as a running halfback
and intercepting almost as many passes as the other team can throw. The first
string line has three Juniors, Jack Matzinger, and Tom Donoghue as guards and
Frank Keane as an end until his wrist was twisted the wrong way in the Power
game. Colman Mockler and Art Maguire make substitute line positions while Bob
Sheehan is manager of the team. On the J.V. squad we place Jim O'Brien, Tom
Guerriero, Bill DeGennaro and Bob Bush in the backfield while Ed Greis, Tom
Reilly and jack Barringer are on the line.
When swimming comes we find a number of us are almost fish. Paul Rooney,
Harry Amar, Jim Cassidy, Bob Daley and Jack Groh all help the swimming team
go through its highly successful season, and Bob Daley especially stands out when
he annexes the hundred yards free style in the Private Schools Championships,
in which race Rooney also places.
Added to the recipe for a good Junior year are two Varsity Basketball Stars,
Ernie Pfeufer and little Eddie Dolan. Both of them playing all through the season,
Ernie is remembered for his high scoring in several games, and Eddie for his smart
ball handling. Besides these, Willie Vallari, Colman Mockler, Joe Armas, Ray
Bree and Jim Reidy bolster the Jay Vee basketball team. '
Track draws a number also, Artie Maguire, Ned Curran, Tom Keily, jim
O'Brien, Jack Densky, Dick Bothner and John Maloney are all on the team. In
fact third year men get in on the breaking of three Prep school records this season,
including Art Maguire's 55 seconds for the quarter mark, and his leg in the 880
Relay that sets the new Prep record, nosing out Loughlin to win the Catholic
Indoor title in that event.
But there are other things in the recipe besides sports participation. We can
throw in Virginio Cannavo's presidency of the Stamp Club and business manage-
ment of the Ramkin . . . Bob D'Arista in the Stamp and Art Club . . . Dick Vreden-
burgh, Ed Lowe, J oe Hamilton, Bob Daley, Ned Curran and John Maloney con-
tribute to the Christmas Ramkin. Ned Curran, Bob Daley, Jim Reidy and John
Maloney working for the Rampart,with Jack Barringer taking pictures for the same
publication . . . Joe Hamilton, Frank Bart, Virginio Cannavo, Ed Greis, Art Kaps,
Ed Lowe and Dick O'I-Iara all have parts in the school play "Julius Caesar," while
Bob Wolf, Jack Barringer, Gerry Carroll, Bob Keck and Joe Kilsheimer are on the
stage crew. Add also an excellent attendance at Friday morning K.B.S. Masses
and a high enrollment in the Sodality of the Blessed Virgin, and you have just a
small idea of what other extra curricular activities go to make up a good Junior
Going back again with the season to sports, we find that J im Daly, Bob Henning,
Willie Vallari and Fred Rovet, veterans from last year's team are still good to
put on the recipe as Varsity baseballers. To all this we add a great school year
. . . include lunches at the Cafeteria, the "H," Gateway and St. John's . . . Driscoll
in English . . . jack Liegey and Caledonia in Fr. Curley's class . . . Ray Sansone
and George MacDonald in German . . . an oral treatise on jazz and other forms of
music by Phil Amato . . . Tom Wohlgemuth and Phil Amato and good music . . .
Burt Kearns' shiny face on any day . . . Dick Bothner's snakes and I.Q .... Imita-
tions by Cividanes . . . Cannavds car and Groh's too . . . a few gay parties and Bob
Henning's winning beauty at the Cherry Tree Hop . . . George Madden's pretty
tie . . . Rovet and Halligan, comedy team . . . Mannion and minor injuries during
P.T .... January exams . . . a few sad farewells . . . the coming of Spring-and no
more need be mentioned. There is no choice, it must be admitted,-ours is a good
recipe for Third Year.

The Sophomore class of 1945-46 has made especially great progress in scholas-
tic endeavor and has been a real "spark plug" in the many extra curricular activi-
ties of the Prep. The classrooms of, this section are filled with Prepsters, who,
month after month receive honors for their good marks. And in addition, every
Tuesday and Friday morning, before class, the chapel is literally "packed" with
these same young men who voluntarily give up their time to the service and fealty
of Our Blessed Lady and her Divine Son in the Sodality Mass and the meetings
of the Knights of the Blessed Sacrament. Let's look back into ancient history and
see how this outstanding Sophomore class happened to make their wonderful
record of spiritual and intellectual superiority.
On the morningof September 10, 1945, the walls of Collins Auditorium re-
echoed once more to the voicesfof Fordham Prepsters who returned for nine more
months of scholarship and Prep school activity. Among this number were over two
hundred students who were now become Second Year men, and were passing
from the lowly grade of freshmen in Collins Auditorium to a more dignified status
in Hughes Hall. After the medals for scholastic excellence were awarded at an
assembly, the Prepsters were assigned to their various classes and met their new
teachers. Mr. Trimarco presided over 2C, Fr. DeRoss O'Connor, S.J. was the class
teacher of 2D, while Mr. Thomas Muldoon, S.J. had 2F, Mr. John Leonard, S.J.
had ZE, Mr. Nicholas Sullivan, S.J. had 2G, and Mr. Joseph McKenna, S.J. had ZH.
Mr. Hanish was charged with the task of instilling German into the brains of these
new second year men, and Mr. Edmund O'Sullivan, Mr. Martin Hession, Mr.
James Somerville, S.J. and Mr. Robert Gleason, S.J. taught French. In the mathe-
matics department Mr. Martin Neylon, S.J. and Mr. Harry McDonough bore the
burden of teaching geometry. After a few days of preparation, the Sophomores
were first subjected to the trials and the wars of Gaius Julius Caesar and he has
become a very well known if not well liked figure in the months that have followed.
Lest we forget, it might be well to mention here the class oflicers of the different
sections in second year. After the students became a little better acquainted with
their new class mates and had managed to talk their teachers into a class meeting,
the class officers were selected. In 2C Danny Hughes was elected President and
Bud Gardner, Gene .D'Ablemont and Bernie Gaffney were elected Vice President,
Secretary and Treasurer respectively. In"2D, in the same order Charlie DiOrio
was made President, while Pete iO'Rourke, Joe Carrozza and Pat Dolan filled the
offices of Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. In 2E Frank Cook was Presi-
dent, John Sheehan, Vice Presidentg Greg Varhol, Secretary and Bill Dobbin,
Treasurer. In 2F, Joe Brown was President, Bob Blake was Vice President, Mike
Culhane was Secretary, and Jack Lutz was Treasurer. In 2G Don Clark capably
filled the office of President while his assistants were Bill O'Connell, John Manning
and Joe Bellantoni. Finally in 2H, Steve DiGiacamo was President, John Lenane
Vice President, Tom Cleary was Secretary and Gene Kenny was Treasurer.

A record number of 170 iirst year men entered Fordham last September. Seven
classes were made and a keen competition grew up which has improved both
scholastic and 'extra curricular activity standards. The Parents were made ac-
quainted with Fordham Prep in a special Parents' Night meeting, and the first
year men themselves with the passing months have taken the spirit of Fordham
into their bones. They have embarked on the study of Latin, and are picking their
way through the intricacies of algebra, and besides that they have learned of places
called Study Hall and J ug, where waywardness is effectually discouraged. A great
number of students have been accepted into the Sodality of Our Lady and the
Knights of the Blessed Sacrament, and the number of first year men in these activi-
ties is very large. A peek into the accomplishments of the various sections will
show how each class has contributed to the student participation in Fordham
Section C boasts that they were publicly praised in an assembly for their sup-
port of the football team because they turned out in large numbers for the contests.
And their boast is just. They have also contributed Pierce Kavanagh and Robert
Mockler to the First Year Debating team, one arguing for the affirmative, and
the other for the negative.
In Section D, Chris Donfield and Bill Loughnane represented their class in a
Latin contest presented before the school. Also at an assembly of the school,
Werner Edelmann delivered a talk on St. Stanislaus Kostka, and later on in the
year, 'he participated in the junior division of the elocution contest, being the
only first year man to take part.
The contributions of 1E to extra curricular activities have been numerous.
They purchased the largest number of tickets for the play "Julius Caesar," sur-
passing every other class, and winning for themselves a holiday as a reward for
their labors. In this class is Peter Holthaus, who is the President of the Bellarmine
Debating Society, and Richard Rousseau who is the Manager of the Band.
The class of 1F, looking forward now to its second year at the Prep, recalls
many pleasant and exciting moments as First year men. With Jim Prather as its
president, the class came to the fore with many outstanding members in scholas-
tic and extra-curricular activities.
In Section G, students from the class were engaged in Football, J.V. Basketball,
and in Track and Baseball. In 'addition to this some of their members were in
Dramatics and in the Band. Under Mr. Ruane, SJ. great stress was -laid on class
loyalty and as a result the class has a great deal of spirit and its teams are always
loyally supported and win many games. They have also been victors in a Latin
Section 1H, known as IA, makes up the latest class to come to Fordham Prep.
From the large number of over five hundred applicants only 35 were chosen. The
newcomers fully realize and appreciate the advantages they now have over their
more unfortunate fellow competitors. Under the splendid tutelage of Mr. Stuart
and Mr. Lyttle, the class progresses very rapidly for it is an ambitious one.

For many years an integral part of Prep life, the Sodality of the Blessed Mother
has finished a distinguished year of service to the Prep by contributing generously
to the welfare of the school. The praises of the Sodality cannot be sung because the
greatest help it gives to the students is in the spiritual activity and the life of grace
in the souls of the boys, but yet, the work done is not entirely unnoticed because
notice of this is taken in heaven. Certainly the entire Prep is grateful to the
Moderator, Fr. Tallon, SJ. for his untiring championship of all the students and
for his unfailing interest and enthusiasm in this most important of Prep activities.
It might be well to recount here some of the things for which the Sodality of Our
Lady is responsible here at Fordham. This tribute at least, it is within our power
Two outstanding features of Prep activity can be traced directly to the Sodality.
The first of these is the Rampart. This was organized and established as a regular
feature at the Prep back in 1942 when it took the place of the Athletic Council-
man. The interest and support of the students in this paper more than proves
how much it is appreciated and how much it has contributed to the improvement
of the spirit of the school. The excellence of the paper can be judged also from
the fact that it has attained all scholastic honors for the fine quality of its journal-
ism and make up and has received all Catholic honors from the Catholic School
Press Association for three straight years.
In addition to this, the Sodality is directly responsible for the formation of the
Student Council. Merely a dream in some schools, the student government of the
Prep is a smoothly working reality, It is through this medium that the students
present their ideas to the faculty and particularly to the Principal. Time is allowed
each class once a month to hold a meeting at which each member of the class
is free to propose measures of improvement and reform. These measures are first
approved by the class. They are then written down and submitted by the President
of the section at a special meeting of the class Presidents of the school. This group
also votes on the various measures to be proposed to Fr. Principal and at the
conclusion of the meeting, all the measures that were passed are submitted to
Fr. O'Connell, SJ., for his approval or rejection. In the past few years, many of
the ideas that have been thought of by the students have found their way into the
legislation of school discipline and policy.
Every Tuesday morning at 8:30 in the University Chapel, the weekly meeting
of the Sodality is held. At these meetings prayers are recited, hymns are sung and
business is discussed. Each week a guest speaker is also invited to address the
Sodalists. In recent months some of those who have addressed the Sodalists are
Fr. Hartrell, SJ. of New Orleans, and Fr. Matthews, SJ. and Mr. Robert Gleason,
SJ.,-both of the Prep Faculty. The purpose of these meetings and talks is to give
the Sodalist a true knowledge of his faith and also the inspiration to live up to its
teachings and to draw others to embrace the true Church of Christ.
Although the Knights of the Blessed Sacrament are a separate group, they are
sponsored by the Sodality and have the same purpose as is mentioned above. The
proper outlet of this organization is the Friday morning mass at the University
Chapel. This is the function which is most prominent in the influence of religious
life in the Prep. It will be a bright star in the crown of Our Lady to know that be-
cause of a Sodality devoted to her name, the students of the Prep have the oppor-
tunity every Friday morning to receive in the Holy Eucharist her Divine Soni
'On First Fridays of the month, there is Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament and
on these occasions, some member of the Faculty preaches a sermon to the stu-
It can be truly said that the two organizations of the Sodality of Our Lady and
the Knights of the Blessed Sacrament are inseparably united with the life of Ford-
ham Prep. In the past few years the two activities have grown and strengthened
considerable, and there is a corresponding growth 'of interest and enthusiasm in
the entire Prep. It would seem only just to say then that Fordham Prep stands
and falls according to the position occupied by the Sodality and the Knights of
the Blessed Sacrament. If these are in a prominent position all is well, if there is
something wrong, then the trouble can be remedied easily by restoring these two
organizations to their proper place and importance.

Campion Debating Sucietg
One of the hardest working and most industrious organizations at the Prep is
the Senior Debating Society. This group works throughout the entire year, its
members being active either by participating in debates with other schools, or in
elocution and oratorical contests. It is a society whose benefits stay with the de-
bater through his days in the business or professional world. Not only will the
Campionites enjoy these future benefits, but at present are learning the poise and
self assurance necessary for public speaking.
The organization this year was under the excellent tutelage of Mr. John Con-
nolly, S.J., who took over in the place of Rev. Richard Zegers, SJ. The fine record
of the Campion debaters reflects in a small way the work and attention that Mr.
Connolly, SJ. put into the organization.
At the first meeting of the year, the Moderator announced that the main efforts
of the society would be turned toward inter-school debates rather than inter-society
debates. The subject chosen for all schools during the year of 1946 was the timely
topic: Resolved that every able bodied male citizen of the United States receive
a full year of compulsory military training before reaching the age of twenty-four.
The election of ofiicers then took place and Donald Murray, Hardy Nathan and
Ed McNulty were elected president, vice president and secretary, respectively.
The president announced that the meetings would be held every other Thursday.
At the following meeting, tryouts for the place on the two teams were held and
Donald Murray, Ray Squerciati and Hardy Nathan were announced as the
members of the affirmative team while the negative teamwas made up of Tom
Egan, Frank Cunnion and Ed Ryan. .
The opening debate of the year took place at Loyola High School with Ford-
ham upholding the afiirmative, as it did all term. The season had an inauspicious
beginning however, as Fordham went down to defeat by a 2-1 decision. The de-
feat however was swiftly avenged, as the same team returned victorious in seven
successive contests. The first of these took place at Cardinal Hayes High School
on November 16, where Prep was declared triumphant by a score of 3-0. Don
Murray was chosen best speaker of this debate. Three days later in an exhibition
debate before the St. Francis Xavier Holy Name Society the affirmative team de-
feated the negative team of Egan, Cunnion and Ryan. Once again Don Murray
was selected best speaker.
The cadets from Xavier journeyed to Fordham in the first home debate of the
year, and were turned back by Murray, Squerciati and Nathan, with Squerciati
being chosen best speaker. November 30 saw the first formal evening debate held
in Collins Auditorium against the young ladies of St. Barnabas High School. The
debate was closely contested and was marked by the sparkling rebuttal of Hardy
Nathan which proved to be the margin of victory. Miss Jeanne Lorry was chosen
best speaker. The fifth straight win of the season saw St. Peter's Prep of Jersey City
bow to Murray, Squerciati and Nathan, with Squerciati receiving the honor of
best speaker for the second time This victory was followed by a visit of the All
Hallows team which also was humbled by the Prep's talented trio of debaters.
The final debate of the term took place in front of the St. Philip Neri Holy Name
Society against Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School. Fordham presented a
two man team composed of Squerciati and Nathan, and the two proved themselves
the victors. They were presented with silver medals. This debate closed the first
half of the debating year and the Prep had garnered a very satisfactory record
of seven victories against only one defeat.
At the initial meeting of the second semester, new officers were elected. Hardy
Nathan was chosen as president, Randy Dixon as vice president and Frank Cun-
nion as secretary. The president announced that a drive to obtain new members
would be started, and that new teams would be formed.
In the first debate of the new term, a negative team composed of Lynn Mar-
shall and Gabriel Fay were defeated in a return contest at St. Barnabas. Marshall
however, was chosen as best speaker. The next projects undertaken by the Society
were the various oratorical and elocution contests. In the first of these Hardy
Nathan was chosen to represent the Prep in the Journal American Oratorical
contest. The subject of this oratorical meet was President Andrew Jackson. In the
Cardinal Hayes Auditorium on March 22, Nathan, competing with representatives
from six Catholic and public schools, placed second in an extremely close contest.
His subject was Andrew Jackson, a Man of the People. In other outside contests
Frank Cunnion will represent Fordham in the Bronx Holy Name Society Oratori-
cal Contest. The subject in this contest is the Constitution. In addition to these
two, Fordham was represented by Ed Ryan in the Jesuit Oratorical Contest, held
on the Fordham Campus in Collins Auditorium. Speaking on the subject of Catho-
lic Schools, Builders of Americans, he placed third in a field of eleven speakers.
On March 28, the annual elocution contest was held in Collins Auditorium with
Cunnion, Ryan, Kiley and Squerciati competing in the Senior division. All the
contestants were very skilful in their presentation. The judge, who declared that
it had been very difiicult to reach a decision, announced Don Kiley as best speaker
for his rendition of Wendell Phillips' famous oration on "Toussaint L'Overture."
Second place was awarded to Ray Squerciati for his delivery of "Steel," by Aus-
Resuming their inter school debates. Hardy Nathan and Ray Squerciati formed
an affirmative team on the subject of military training: The negative team was
made up of Ned Curran and John Nowak. More than ten debates were scheduled,
among these being one with Cathedral and a home and home debate with Blessed
Sacrament. An exhibition debate between the aflirmative and negative teams, be-
fore the Bronx Knights of Columbus has been arranged. Other teams to be debated
in the second term are Regis, Mt. St. Michael, Manhattan Prep and a return en-
gagement with All Hallows.
The season is going to be concluded with a Senior Prize Debate to be held in
Collins Auditorium. The subject chosen for the debaters this year concerns the
right of the movies to influence public opinion. The members of the two teams are
Hardy, Nathan and Lynn Marshall on one side and they will be opposed by
Raymond Squerciati and John Nowak.
Looking at the record of our Campion Society as it now stands, it can be safely
said that this was a very successful year in its history. The statement can be con-
firmed by the fact that both the enthusiastic Moderator and the capable members
of the teams express their confidence in their ability to match the record of the
debaters of the first half of the lyear.

Pardow Debating Suciehg
Moderator - Mr. Joseph C. McKenna, S.J.
President - Eugene D'Ablemont
Vice President - Leopold Bellantoni
Secretary - Raymond Denny
The Pardow, or Second Year Debaters, efficiently moderated by Mr. McKenna,
S.J., make up their numbers largely from the members of last year's Freshman
Debating Society. The subject for debate during the year was that of compulsory
military training and the teams drawn up were Gene D'Ab1emont and Eddie
Kohrs for the negative, and Bob Immen and John Burlinson upholding the affirma-
The inter society debates follow a strict parliamentary procedure for it is the
aim of the society to acquaint the members with this form of conducting a meet-
ing. Hints are given for preparing and arranging arguments, and numerous oppor-
tunities for practice are afforded those who are interested.
The record for the year shows that the Pardow debaters tied for first place in
the Jesuit Oratorical Tournament for Second Year. Notable victories were scored
over St. Peter's and St. Thomas Aquinas. The only team to defeat them in tourna-
ment competition was Xavier. Other victories of the team came in their triumphs
over Blessed Sacrament School, Loyola and All Hallows. With this record of vic-
tories and the gaining of a first place in the Jesuit Tournament, the Pardow De-
baters may well be proud of their achievements, and their fine showing promises
well for the debating teams of Junior and Senior year.
Bellarmine Debating Society
Moderator-Mr. Martin Neylon, SJ.
Vice President-Donald McDonagh
After a series of preliminary debates, the Bellarmine Debaters, under the tute-
lage of Mr. N eylon, SJ., set as their goal the possession of the First Place Medals
in the Jesuit First Year Debating Tournament. The question chosen for debate
was: Resolved, that every able bodied male citizen of the United States should
have one year's compulsory military training before attaining the age of twenty-
four. The affirmative team, composed of John Horan and Werner Edelmann, have
defeated Regis, Brooklyn Prep. and St. Peter's Prep. in that order. The negative
team of Lamont McLoughlin and Robert Mockler defeated Loyola and then
went on to overcome Xavier and gain undisputed possession of the First Place
Medals with a record of five victories in Tournament debating and no defeats.
Robert Mockler was chosen as best speaker in all the- negative debates. The Ram-
kin wishes to hail Mr. Neylon and his undefeated Debaters for their splendid
With the introduction of Mr. John DeBeuris, the new director to the band and
its moderators, Mr. Nicholas Sullivan, SJ. and Mr. Francis Madigan, SJ., the
band had one of its most successful seasons, and repeatedly won the applause
of students and audiences for its splendid performances.
The band was prominent throughout the football season since it played at every
home game and thus contributed much to the spirit and support of the team
during that season. But in the first half year, the band was heard at other times
besides the football games. At all the assemblies, the band played selections from
its ever increasing repertoire. When the time for the Christmas play came the
band was ready with several sprightly numbers to entertain the student body.
These included "American Patrol" and Christmas selections.
At the annual playrthe band played selections from Victor Herbert with whom
Mr. DeBeuris had formerly played himself, and also "Good Fellowship Overture"
and "Sweet Mystery of Life." These were very well received by the audience as
well as the "Andante for Clarinetsj' from theoverture to the Magic Flute, by
Mozart. For all this work, the entire school owes a debt of gratitude to the hard
working directors and members of the band.

Apparently the word ','success" has become imprint-
ed on the escutcheon of the Dramatic Society. For, fol-
lowing up last year's superb "Merchant of Venice," the
Prep Thespians gave a stirring interpretation of another
of Shakespeare's dramas, "Julius Caesar" on the eve-
nings of February 28 and March 1. With Director Leon
Roget again putting the actors through their "inflection"
and "business" and Mr. John J. Leonard, SJ., conducting
the technical staff, the Society surpassed any and all
of its previous accomplishments.

Due to the magnitude of the cast chosen for "Julius
Caesar," a cast which comprised students of all years
and classes, the awarding of medals for best interpreta-
tions of roles was handled differently from other years.
Ray Squerciati, for his unforgettable portrayal of Caesar,
was presented with a gold medal, given for the best
interpretation of a major role. The gold medal awarded
for the best interpretation of a minor role went ex aequo
to Don Kiley, who played the tribune Marullus, and to
John Delaney, who was cast as Artemidorus of Rhodes.
The walls of Collins Auditorium, reverberating to the
applause and plaudits of the delighted audiences, attest
to the heights which the Thespians scaled in this year's
The audience was kept continually in suspense from
the opening lines of "Hence home you idle creatures, get
you home . . . " to the final "This was a man!" They saw
the noble Brutus as portrayed by Frank Cunnion torn
between love of friend and love of country. The crafty
Cassius, brilliantly played by Edmund Ryan, molded
the distraught mind of Brutus to join the conspiracy,
and led him finally to the fatal plains of Philippi. Hardy
Nathan, stirred the audience by his words as powerfully
as he stirred the minds of the Romans by his passionate
defense of the prostrate Caesar. Key minor roles were
admirably handled by Don Gianella, Bill Lucca, John
Nowak, Gerry Rippon, Gabriel Fay, Peter Holthaus and
In addition to the regular annual major performances,
two smaller, but hardly less interesting playlets were
dramatized during the school year. The initial play, H.
H. Middlemas' "The Valiant" was presented at the
October 15 assembly and received wide acclaim from
all. Starring in this story of the man about to die on the
gallows, was Tom Egan as Dyke, the murderer, Frank
Cunnion, as a benevolent warden. Assisting roles were
Gerry Rippon and Bernard Gaffney.

"Plan for Peace," a traditional Christmas pageant, was
presented on December 20. Written and directed by
the Moderator, it starred Edmund Ryan as the desperate
stranger fleeing from the court of Herod who seeks
refuge with two dirty shepherds, Gabriel Fay and Hardy
Everything taken into consideration, all would be
ready to admit that the year of 1945-46 deserves to be
remembered as one of the banner years in the history
of Prep Dramatics.

Master of Properties-Robert Wolf
This year, the Prep's Technical Staff, more commonly known as the Stage Crew,
had a very active and successful season. They began with an excellent production
of H. H. Middlemas' one act play, "The Valiant." As their Christmas presentation,
the Dramatic Society chose a "Plan for Peace," written and directed by Mr.
Leonard, SJ. For this play, the crew was faced with the difficult task of recreating
the scene of Bethlehem on the stage of Collins Auditorium. This was done to a
high degree of perfection by the Stage Crew under ,the direction of Paul Lavery
who was the Manager of the Crew in the first term of the school year.
For the culmination of a highly successful season, the Roman Forum complete
in every detail, was built by our technicians for the presentation of Julius Caesar.
This feat was accomplished over a period of six weeks by the crew under the
capable direction of Christopher Waldorf, who was also responsible for the light-
ing eltects. h

The Ramkin is the literary publication of the Prep, and is designed to help
the students develop their latent talents in the field of writing. It appears at
Christmas and Easter and is a constant proof of the ability of Prep Students to
produce literature worthy of appearing in print. In June the same staff produces
the Year Book of the graduating class and thus has the opportunity of displaying
its versatility as well as its writing ability. v
One of the most important activities in the Prep is the publishing of the school
paper. This efficient part of Fordham life is moderated by Mr. Martin Hession.
The school paper appears about nine times during the school year, and always
has the last minute events of Fordham Prep written up in its pages. The popularity
of the paper is evident, both from the way in which all the students read it, and
by the large number of candidates who are anxious to get a position on its staff.
The paper itself covers every phase of school life. On the first page is the latest
feature news event. Thus the play, or the oratorical contest, the graduation of the
February class or the announcement of the dance would receive prominent pub-
licity. On the second page there is a fine editorial column and also one entitled
Per Mariam, as a tribute to Our Lady. Then of course comes the all important
sports page which faithfully tells not only the fortunes of the Prep teams but also
some Monday morning reporting in the sports column. On to the Fray and Chalk
Dust are two columns that have a high reading rating. The Senior of the Month
and the Athlete of the Month also come in for a due share of attention. This is a
tribute to the fine work that the staff and the Moderator have done on the Rampart
'during this year. The various students who helped conduct the Rampart through
its highly successful season are:

With the addition of new studio equipment, a P-A system and a complete sound-
effects library, the Radio Workshop under the guidance of Mr. Somerville, SJ.,
went into high gear this year. Three new developments high-lighted its activities:
a script-writers' department, a staff of trained technicians and an itinerant group
that treated nearby parishes to plays featuring school life and social questions.
These dramas touched on Nazi persecution of the Church, Catholic education
and other topics of current interest. Plays by Ned Curran and Anthony Ciliberti
were well received. Among the many who starred at school assemblies and outside
the Prep were: Joe Valerio, Tom Egan, Lynn Marshall, Frank Cunnion, Ray
Squerciati, Ray Christman, Alan Lynon, Ned Curran, Bob Hultmark and a host
of others. Tony Colarusso, Don Weber and Ken Flavia kept pace with their
Mr. Thomas O'Brien, NBC announcer, has taken an interest in the club and
through him members got their initiation to professional radio in a privately con-
ducted tour through Radio City. Workshop crews manned the mics and P-A
system at football games, Friday KBS and May devotions. A
Studies, sports and song are the three S's which supplement the three R's. The S
that signifies song is important because it builds and proves school spirit and
morale. It is for this reason that the Glee Club ranks high in Prep activities. The
Club is under the able direction of Dr. Frederic Joslyn and Mr. Martin Neylon, SJ.
Our Prepster Glee Club members made their first appearance of the 1945-46
season in Collins Auditorium at Freshman Parents' Night. At that time their
theme was principally patriotic, "Rolling Along," "Your Land and My Land,"
and "Marching Along Together," to name only a few.
The curtain rose on the Nativity play to an audience definitely in the Christ-
mas mood,-thanks to the Glee Club's beautiful rendition of the carols.
Between the acts of the Shakespearean tragedy, "Julius Caesar," the songsters
struck a lighter note by singing the "Bells of St. Mary's," "The Orchestra Song,"
and "Night Shadows Falling."
But the Glee Club also has its serious side as they demonstrated by their chant-
ing of the Gregorian Mass in honor of St. Ignatius Loyola. For all these contribu-
tions to the spirit of Fordham Prep, the undergraduates owe the Glee Club a
rousing vote of thanks for a job well done.
Gaelic Culture Club
M odetators-Mr. Joseph McKenna, SJ., Mr. Patrick Flood
Vice President-John Cummings
To appreciate their Irish heritage the descendants of the Emerald Isle have
joined together to study the literature and native tongue of Ireland. In their bi-
monthly meetings, the members hear various speakers describe the political, social
and educational background of Ireland. Mr. Patrick Flood has conducted classes
in the Gaelic language, which were enthusiastically attended by members of the
organization. As in previous years the Gaels will be well represented in the annual
Irish Feis, where contests of singing, folk dancing and oratory will be held. The
members are firmly convinced that the revival of Gaelic culture can be forwarded
by the intelligent study and appreciation of the rich heritage of Ireland's past
and this goal is being capably fostered by the Gaelic Culture Club.

A'vote of thanks is due the Camera Club by the many Prep organizations for
the numerous pictures it has so graciously supplied to them. The Camera Club,

with the aid of the Industrial Arts Club which is under the direction of Mr.
Since its inception, the Club has been active taking photographs of landscapes
and the various Prep activities, both scholastic and athletic. The photograph of
one of the statues was chosen by Fr. Gannon, SJ., President of Fordham Univer-

of the Club is furnished by the numerous pictures supplied to this Year Book.

The Speech Club, moderated by Mr. Gleason, SJ., works in conjunction with
the Radio Club and prepares its members for speech work which can be channeled
through the debating societies, oratorical contests and the dramatic society. Its
purpose is to give the fundamental training in speech technique necessary for
effective work in these organizations. Remedial work is carried on in diction, voice
placement, and interpretation as well as advanced work in expressional voice
training, according to the needs of the individual student. This new Prep Activity
has already proved helpful to its members by assisting them in performing with
distinction in debates and plays, and it should prove to be a means of obtaining
poise and confidence for many students at the Prep.

"To provide the Prep students with a more thorough understanding of French
life and culture." With this as their chief goal for the year, the Prep French Acad-
emy set out early last October on a most extensive and interesting program. At the
meetings which were held semi-monthly, the members were treated to a series of
instructive lectures by the Moderator, Mr. Edmund O'Sullivan, an accomplished
master of "l'art francaisef' Needless to say, the meetings proved most enjoyable.
Christmastide found the "jeunes hommes" of the Prep working in conjunction
with the Prep German Academy, receiving the well known plaudits of the assem-
bled school body at Collins Auditorium after the presentation of their one act
drama, "A Christmas Over T here." Written and directed by Mr. O'Sullivan and
Mr. Hanish, the play provided forty-five minutes of most pleasing entertain-
ment, as the actors offered the dialogue in three languages-French, German and
English. Starring roles were portrayed by Frank Cunnion and Joe Valerio who
were American officers of the Army of Occupation, by Don Murray, who repre-
sented a hard boiled Yank sergeant, with a very masterful control of the German
tongue and by Bill Heaney, Alan Lyon and Ed O'Brien, three German prisoners,
with the last named giving a memorable and uproarious performance of a typical
Nazi superman. Lynn Marshall, Don Gianella and Harry Cividanes were cast as
three very Huent French peasants,while Gerry Rippon played the role of the French
cure. The entire performance was excellently done and very well received.
Again at the March assembly, the Academy displayed their Thespian talents when
they presented the murder scene from Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar." The novelty
of the language, especially after the recent presentation of the play by the school
in elaborate set and costumes, put the actors to a severe test, but they passed
it with flying colors. The French Academy has had a very successful year.

Resting squarely on the shoulders of the members of the St. John Berchmann's
Sanctuary Society is the responsibility and honor of assisting at the numerous
religious functions held at the Prep. Be it either the weekly Mass of the Knights
of the Blessed Sacrament or the monthly First Friday devotions, the Prep "Legio
Dei" may be observed performing their duties competently and devoutly. And
although, perchance, one of the least spectacular of Prep activities, the Sanctuary
Society is steeped in the well known Fordham tradition. For this society was
established several decades ago for the express purpose of furnishing the Prep
with a zealous corps of altar boys, eager to serve Christ in the ceremonies of the
In addition to K.B.S. Mass and First Friday devotions, members of the Society
assisted at the annual Mass of the Holy Ghost, at the school retreat and at the
Sodality receptions in February and May. For the first time, perhaps, in Fordham
history, the Society provided the acolytes for the University Midnight Mass on
Christmas morning. Besides their regular duties several of the Fourth year mem-
bers proved of immeasurable assistance at the Senior Retreats held at Mount
Manresa this Spring. The members are under the guidance and direction of Mr.
Robert Gleason, SJ. to whom is due all praise for the faultless precision and splen-
did manner of each individual member.

FORDHAM 19 QUEEN OF PEACE 0
Taking the field against Our Lady Queen of Peace
from North Arlington, N. J., the Prep romped off with
an easy victory. The game was played in the driving rain
but the slippery footing didn't seem to hinder the Prep
backs as they ran roughshod over the Queen of Peace
team. Don Callahan scored in the first quarter on a
plunge through the center. Then after a blocked kick
put the ball deep in the Visitor's territory, Bob Henning
raced around end for the second score and Bill Appleton
converted making it 13-0. Later, Henning scored again
for the third and final touchdown.
FORDHAM 16 POWER 2
Meeting a strong Power team and exhibiting an amaz-
ing pass defense, the Prep played heads-up ball all the
way to come out on top. With two safeties for the Prep
and one for Power, the score at half time read like a base-
ball score, Fordham 4, Power 2. Then in the second half
the Prep caught fire. With the aid of a pass interception
by Bob Henning and runs by Daly and Dolan, the Prep
marched deep into Power territory. Jim Daly then pitch-
ed a strike to Tom Dolan in the end zone for the Prep's
first six-pointer. Power started long desperation passes
in the fourth quarter and Callahan, intercepting one of
these, raced forty-five yards for the clincher.
FORDHAM 6 BROOKLYN PREP 33
Coming up against a surprisingly strong contingent
from Brooklyn, Fordham tasted their Hrst defeat of the
1945 season. Paced by the terrific running of Captain
George Paterno and the sensational receiving of Frank
Mahoney, the Blue -and White smashed their way over
the Prep goal line five times. Brooklyn was the first to
score on a pass from Paterno to Mahoney. The Prep
came rushing back with McDermott and Callahan eating
up huge hunks of yardage. Tom Dolan then countered
from 35 yards out. That ended the Prep's scoring for
the day. Imbornoni and Paterno then proceeded to tear
the Ram line to shreds and the touchdown parade ended
finally with the count Brooklyn 33, Fordham 6.
Old Man Injury seemed to stick close at the heels of
Fordham Prep football teams for the past two seasons.
The football season of 1945 was looked forward to with
high expectations. A big, fast line and lightning-fast
backiield were in the ofling. Then first string fullback
Joe LiPani pulled several tendons in his leg and was
hobbled for the rest of the season. Captain Tom Dolan
was moved over from end to fill in for LiPani and things
didn't look too black. Then just before the lirst game
Kevin McManus broke his collar bone and was sidelined.
After this Coach McIntyre had to do some backiield
shifting. First string end Frank Keane broke his wrist in
the Brooklyn Prep game, Charlie Burger and Jack Mc-
Dermott were injured slightly and the Prep was really
submerged in the depths of despair.
Despite these handicaps the 1945 Prep team fought
hard in every game though on the losing end and held
high the Fordham reputation for drive and zip. Thus

ton and Burke at tackles, Matzinger and Donoghue at

Council of Discipline
Industrial Arts Club
M oderator-Mr. Patrick Shea
Besides the teaching of Mathematics, Mr. Shea has turned his versatile mind
to the instruction of Prep students interested in Industrial Arts. Not content with
mere speculative teaching of the principles of using hammer and saw, the Club,
under his direction, has drawn up blue prints in preparation for actual construc-
tion. They have already proved themselves capable artisans by building the dark
room in Collins Auditorium for the use of the members of the Camera Club. During
their meetings, the sound of buzz saw and hammer may be heard issuing from
their workshop which adjoins the locker room of Hughes Hall. In the future, when
these same members will have reached their goals in the fields of industry and
labor, they will, we are sure, remember with gratitude, the benefits reaped from
participation in this Prep activity.
King-Mr. Stuart Degginger
An old activity which has reappeared this year largely due to the energetic
activity of Renato Di Stefano and Edmund Ryan, is the Chess Club. Its main
function, at the beginning of the year was to teach the art of playing the difficult
game of chess. At the present time, the members of the club are planning to con-
duct a chess tournament among the undergraduates to determine the chess
champion of the school. Already outside schools have been contacted with the
purpose of establishing inter school chess tournaments. As proof of Mr. Degginger's
work in fostering an interest in the time honored game of chess, one has only to
glance over at the library during lunch period or after school and see the many
enthusiasts who are striving for a final checkmate.
The History Club is not occupied exclusively with the doings of those who
have already gone on and left an impression on the course of theVworld's events.
This club has another interest which occupies the members almost as much as
their primary activity. The subordinate activity is called the labor forum.
In order to give the members of the History Club some knowledge and insight
into those problems of economics which have such profound influence, the Labor
Forum has been established only this year. Under the leadership and guidance of
Mi. Alvin T. Grant, plans were made for trips to the Stock Exchange and to a
session of the City Council.
Because so many of the members were engaged in other extra-curricular activi-
ties about the Prep, the meetings could not always be held. But there was enthusi-
asm and interest shown by a number of students, particularly in the Senior class.
They realized clearly that those who are soon to face the world must sympathize
in the truest sense with the difficulties confronting our economic system. But more
than sympathy is required: and the members of the Labor Forum were out to
acquire the second requisite, namely knowledge.
Mr. Grant is well qualified to help in the gaining of this knowledge. The study
of History has given him insight into the eternal as well as the temporal values
which must help in the solution of even current problems. A new activity, but one
which is at home here in the Prep, and which should continue with all success,
is the Labor Forum.

M oderator-Mr. Alvin Grant
Vice President-William Ryan
This September found a new extra curricular activity striving for recognition
at Fordham Prep. With the arrival of Mr. Alvin Grant, as the new Senior and
Sophomore teacher of history, the History Club rnade its debut. Under his able
direction, the History Club has become one of the most frequented organizations
of the Prep and now ranks evenly with the oldest of extra curricular activities.
Since the beginning of the History Club problems of all phases of historical
interest have been discussed with the same interest which can be found in the
debates held in a City Council or in any department in Washington, D.C. Labor
problems, social, religious and racial problems have been discussed with innu-
merable other topics, and finally argued to a decision. We know that whatever
present day problems arise, they can be discussed and understood by the mem-
bers of the History Club of Fordham Prep, and so we wish them success in the
years to come.

The Chemistry Club which was inaugurated under Mr. Bauer's direction has,
since his transfer to Graduate School studies, been capably managed by Mr.
Taylor, SJ. As an example of the progress which the members of the club have
been making, they presented a program at the December assembly. Informative
papers were delivered by joseph Valerio, Dewey Vigliotti, Donald Murray, Cosi-
mo Carlucci, and Alan Lyon. Various phases of the Atomic age were discussed.
The war inventions, namely, radar, aeronautical design, jet propulsion and the
awful power of the atom bomb, were explained in an interesting and informative
manner. In the weekly meetings, the members in turn present a paper and then
conduct an experiment in some phase of chemistry or physics. The Club has been
found most helpful in assisting those especially interested in the sciences.
Moderator-Mr. Patrick Shea
Vice President-Renato Di Stefano
The Stamp Club under the guidance of Mr. Shea has united a knowledge of
philately with some fundamental precepts of Parliamentary procedure. The mem-
bers gather weekly and discuss the latest developments in the history of stamps.
The various new issues distributed by the Post Office Department are awaited
with interest and collected with enthusiasm. After each meeting there is an auction
of stamps. At this, the dominant iigure is that of Francis Coyle, elected as the
Auctioneer. During this time, stamps aretraded or bought, and in this way the
members strive to better their own collection and share their own good stamps
with their fellow members. Members feel that the Club has helped them to a
better understanding of the historical background of their own and foreign lands.
Moderator-Mr. John Leonard, SJ.

Under the direction of Mr. Leonard, SJ., the Art Club has become an integral
part of Prep activities. Indeed it is the organization to which everyone turns when
there is need of posters or advertising campaigns. But they are not merely adver-
tisers. In the field of artistic endeavor, Cosimo Carlucci made a name for himself
by his ingenious cover designs for the Ramkin Magazine. His drawings, and those
of the other members have also stimulated interest and support of the plays that
were put on at the Prep, and of the teams who defended the honor of Fordham
on gridiron and basketball court. The artists belonging to the club do work in oils,
pen sketching and water colors. Some of these paintings are destined for public
exhibition outside the school. The Art Club intends to put more emphasis on
participation in exhibitions, both within and without the school, and we know this
will mean the furthering of the glory of the Prep in a new field of endeavor.
in the second round with a tough Xavier quintet, but the Ford-
ham Five never gave them a chance to get started. They jumped
into the lead right in the beginning, and stayed there for the rest
of the game. Toward the end, Xavier surged up with determina-
tion and a ten point lead was whittled down to two points with
more than three minutes left to play. While Fordham was leading
by only one point, Abele went out of the game on fouls and this
also added to the gloom and excitement of the large Fordham
delegation at the end of the contest. But Eddie Dolan came in
for Abele and sank a foul shot to give Fordham a two point lead.
Then the Rams proceeded to freeze the ball for the remaining
minute and fourteen seconds, adding one point to their score on a
foul, when an over anxious Xavier man tried to steal the ball from
McDermott. Again Bradley showed up with top notch basketball,
scoring eighteen points and playing a fine game under the back-
After that game the Ramlets moved into the semi-finals and
seemed to lose their touch because they dropped a one sided con-
test to St. Ann's and could not score with any ease until the last
On the final night however, in the consolation game to deter-
mine the third place winner, Fordham took on a highly touted
St. Benedict squad and proved more than a match for them, walk-
ing off with a 44-37 victory. Bradley scored 20 points but un-
fortunately fell just three points short of obtaining the individual
scoring honors for the tournament. His Hfty-four tallies were good
enough to give him a second place. The win against St. Benedict
gave Fordham a third place and the tradition that the Prep has
established of never finishing lower than third in the Fr. Reilly
Memorial tournament has been preserved. This final win was a
fitting climax to a good basketball season. High praise is due both
the hard working members of the squad and their conscientious
coach, Mr. Joseph Varju.
fouled in the last seconds of the game and he sank his free throw
to give us a two point lead and the ball game. The Prep's starting
five accounted for all scores, with Abele netting 13, Bradley 12,
and Pfeufer and Wilkinson sinking 9 points each. McDermott
completed the scoring with five points, and earned a place on the
starting line up.
After this game the Maroon hit a losing streak and lost to
Manhattan and Allentown, travelling over to Pennsylvania for
the latter game and battling bravely only to lose in the end by a
margin of two points. Abele was the high scorer of the contest
for Fordham by sinking 19 points. Then it was All Hallows who
defeated our Ramlets, being the only team besides LaSalle to
defeat Fordham twice. At last the Fordham five got the measure
of St. Simon Stock and defeated them for the second time, but
the pleasure of this victory was soon lost when Mt. St. Michael
came back to defeat the Maroons. It was in this contest that
Bradley ran up his record high of 26 points for a single game.
A further loss to LaSalle was followed by victories over St. Ann's
and Power. Hayes then managed to beat us by three points. In
the last regularly scheduled contest of the season, the Prepsters
trampled Manhattan down to decisive defeat with Bradley scor-
ing sixteen points to go over the two hundred mark and Abele
dropping in 15 points to take the high scoring honors for the season.
In the Fr. Reilly post-season tournament, the Prep was matched
in the first round against St. Nicholas of Tolentine. The Maroon
came through with a sparkling 42-34 victory over the determined
Wildcats, and Bradley found his eye for he threw in sixteen points
and dominated the backboard. Abele also sparked the team de-
fensively on the slippery floor and held off the late rallies of the
Tolentine squad. Following this game, the Ramlets were matched
The next encounter saw the Prepster snowed under by a
veteran LaSalle aggregation in the College gym. LaSalle was
never challenged as it won 50-34, with Cunningham and Kelly
sparking their powerful offensive. For Fordham, Wilkinson was
high scorer with 14 points, while Ed Abele played another great
game and dropped in 12 markers. Fouls proved costly during the
game and Bradley had to leave early in the fourth quarter be-
cause of five personal fouls called against him.
Entering the St. Peter's Tournament, the Ramlets were match-
ed against Regis and expected an easy victory. But -the Maroon
was unprepared for the powerful Regis assault and went down
to defeat at the hands of a powerful offensive from the down-
town school by a score of 36-32. Regis built up a big lead at the
beginning of the game and it was too much for the fighting
Ramlets to overcome in the last half. Their spirited rally fell
short by just four points in the last quarter surge.
St. Simon Stock was trampled under by an enraged Prep team
shortly afterward when the Fordhamites were superb, manhan-
dling their opponents and coming out with a 51-37 victory.
Then the team hit its stride when they beat the Mount on the
following Saturday with Abele winning the ball game almost
single handed, scoring 18 points and throwing up a game win-
ning basket in the last minute of play. The Ramlets then lost to
Power on a slippery floor, but the reason was that the Prep's
speedy offense never really got under way. Power, however, was
at its best, with Donovan splitting the cords for twenty-one points.
The Power team piled up a lead of 34-25 going into the last
quarter. Then the Prep clicked for a brief while until they were
trailing by only one point after McDermott sank a set shot from
the side. Here the attack faltered and Power recovered its lead,
ending the game six points out in front.
Returning to their home court at Fordham, the Ramlets put
on a nice exhibition of basketball to down a very good Rice squad
by a score of 48-46. It was the only contest of the season that
went into overtime. Fordham built up an early lead against their
opponents and held an 18-11 lead at the half way mark. This
gap was quickly closed until the score was 25-21. With Lynch
and Ryan sparking the offense of the Rice team, they caught the
Ram squad with eight minutes remaining and tied the score at
39-39. With less than a minute to go and the Rams leading by
two points, Lynch of Rice was fouled and sank both free throws
to knot the count. The gun prevented further scoring and the
game went into overtime. Pfeufer sank the first basket of the over-
time three minute period and then McDermott sank a foul shot.
This seemed to clinch the game until Rice sank a tap in with
only seconds left. But it was Wilkinson of Fordham who was
It was under the greatest of difficulties that the Prep basketeers
opened their season against Xavier. Coach J oe Varju had arrived
only two weeks previously and had had scarcely enough time to
distinguish between a varsity and a jay vee, and even the players
themselves knew little of their own strength. Thus it might be
argued that the mediocre league record of eight victories and
nine defeats could easily have been bettered under more fortunate
circumstances. During the season Captain Ed Abele led the team
in scoring with 208 points, closely followed by Jim Bradley who
threw in 201. To Bradley goes the honor of most points scored
in a single game with 26 tallies against Mt. St. Michael.
The team that started the season was composed of Wilkinson,
Abele, Bradley, Eddie Dolan and Vic Perry. This quintet was
not able to keep up with a fast Xavier team, and the inexperi-
enced Prep five, who had not settled down to their best form
bowed to the soldiers by a score of 38-35. Tortorice led the Cadets
who used a fast break and some slick ball handling to beat the
Prep. For Fordham Frank Wilkinson, whose deadly set kept the
Rams in the game, was high scorer with 13 points. Eddie Dolan
was close behind with ten tallies. Journeying downtown the fol-
lowing Tuesday, the Prepsters once again dropped a hard played
ball game, this time to St. Anns. The St. Anners, well used to
their own small court, ran the Fordhamites into the floor by the
tune of 44-37.
The Ramlets finally found their way into the winning column
when they dropped the Cardinals from Hayes in a 42-32 rout.
Finally finding itself in the second half of its battle with Hayes,
the Rams, twice beaten in previous encounters, made the Cardi-
nals the victims of their first league victory. By virtue of their
last half spurt, the Rams overcoming a 16-18 deficit at the half-
way mark, rallied to win in a ten point run away. Ed Abele played
his best game up to this point, scoring 16 points. During the latter
half the Prep once scored twelve straight points, with Abele, Wil-
kinson, and Bradley contributing to the rout.
Flrsi Year Cross Cuuntrg
Mr. John McGraw, SJ., coaching the Cross Country team, also led the Junior
Varsity to a successful season. Starting off the season on the right foot, the team
was victorious against Manhattan, winning their meet, 24-31. Jim O'Ma1ley was
the individual winner in 8:39. Their next meet, against De LaSalle, was won
The club then suffered their first loss of the season at the hands of All Hollows,
with O'Mal1ey capturing a second place. But they quickly bounced back to defeat
Rice H. S. and this time O'Mal1ey won the race. The same story was repeated a
few days later as St. Peter's Prep fell victims to the speed of the squad.
On their next time out, the team lost to Mt. StL Michael's in spite of the efforts
of O'Malley who captured a first in the fast time of 8:08. Then the team competed
in both the Bronx-Manhattan-Westchester run and in the C.H.S.A.A. Champion-
ship meet. In the first, the Prep finished second to All Hollows with a team score
of 90. Sinapi, who led the Fordham representatives finished eighth and qualified
for a medal. In the other meet, the Fordham team finished sixth in a field of four-
teen schools. Outstanding performances were turned in by both O'Ma1ley, who
finished fourth, and Sinapi, who finished seventeenth.
In the annual Jesuit Cross Country Championship Race, the team finished
the season in a blaze of glory. Led by O'Malley, who won the individual champion-
ship in 8:08, and Sinapi, who came in third, the team was victorious with a total
of 39 points. Everyone on the squad received team medals, and 0'Malley and
Sinapi received individual medals.
Ably directed by its coach, Mr. John McGraw, SJ., the 1945 cross country team
has completed a very successful season. Hampered by constant injuries through-
out the larger part of the season, the team nevertheless lived up to the highest
expectations of all.
The first victory of the season was racked up at the expense of Manhattan Prep,
22-33. Don Anderson, a sophomore, led the Prep scoring by capturing second
place in 13:21.
On October 29, the Prep harriers engaged De LaSalle and once again were
victors by a score of 21-34. Anderson again led the Prep scoring.
On November 3, the Prep opposed a strong St. Ann's team in a dual meet and
they went down to defeat 19-36:
The All Hallows varsity meet was held on October 31, and Anderson and Ma-
loney placed second and fourth respectively, the latter running his best race up
to that time and turning in a time of 13:30.
Tuesday, November 13, saw the Prep fall prey to St. Peter's Prep in a closely
contested meet. .. , I
In a meet against Mt. St. Michael on November 15 the Varsity came up with a
victory, 26-29. , '
The season came to a close on November 20, as the squad engaged in the annual
Jesuit Cross-country Championship. The team compiled a score of 65 in taking
-third place behind Xavier and Brooklyn Prep. Anderson, in his fastest time of
the season, qualified for the second place medal in 12:42.
Junior Varsihg Football
The 1945 j'.V. football team, one which showed great promise in the pre-season
practices, lived up to all expectations in the regular campaign. Coached by Mr.
Rudolph Hanish, the team completed the'season with a record of four wins,
and two losses.
The opening game on October 18 proved a victory for the Prep over Power
Memorial, 12-0. Early in the first half DiOrio scooted left end, and showing his
blazing speed scampered 40 yards for a T.D. Soon afterwards O'Brien concluded
the day's scoring on an off-tackle play which covered 60 yards.
On Friday, October 26, the Prep played host to Brooklyn Prep and was van-
quished 13-12 in a game that was called in the closing minutes of the third period
because of darkness.
The team broke back into the winning column on November 2nd against Horace
Mann by turning in a 20-6 victory. The team played well both offensively and
defensively, and only one miscue prevented a perfect game.
Iona proved to be a bit more formidable opponent, but they too fell before the
hard charging J r. Ramlets 12-6. Iona scored first and seemed on the way to victory,
when a Carter to Lovisa pass netted a touchdown and tied the score at the half.
Robbin carried the ball over for the J.V. to win for Fordham.
Then on Friday, November 16, Xavier invaded Rose Hill and fought des-
perately before going down to defeat 7-6.
The season came to a close when All Hallows defeated the J.V. 2-0. A defensive
ball game all the way, the affair was finally decided when O'Brien was tackled in
his own end zone while trying to get away a pass.

point that proved to be the margin of victory.
For the rest of the game the two teams battled up and
down the field but to no avail. In the final quarter the
Prep defense tightened and held Xavier on the Fordham
20 yard line as the game ended.
Outstanding all season for the Prep were these fourth
year men who played their last game Thursday: Cap-
tain Tom Dolan, Charlie Burger, John Simermeyer,
Gerald Reidy, Bill Link, Joe Kain, Don Callahan, Kevin
McManus, John Lomio, Ross Carlino, J ack McDermott
and Joe LiPani. Joe, although sidelined by an injury all
season, never failed to cheer the team onward.

ter, after a sustained drive jim Daly faded back and
heaved a beautiful pass to Tom Dolan for the Prep's

All the Prep can be proud of its football team for this
game. Fighting till the very last whistle the Prep was
hopelessly submerged under the avalanching football
machine of the Mount but neither the Mount nor Prep
students will soon forget this fighting Prep team.
FORDHAM 6 XAVIER 7
In the annual Turkey Day classic at Fordham Field
the Prep wound up a none too successful season by drop-
ping a close one to the Kaydets. Once again Fordham
started off on fire. With Henning, McManus and Mc-
Dermott running the ends and ripping the guards for
big pieces of yardage, the Prep drove deeper and deeper
into the visitors' territory. Bob finally plunged his way
over his own left guard for six points. A pass from Daly
to Dolan was too high and the try for extra point failed.
For the remainder of the first quarter the Prep continued
to pound at Xavier's doorsteps. Twice they were within
the twenty yard line and twice they failed to score. In
the second period the Kaydets started a march with
Lehr, Ripperger and Heintz ripping huge holes in the
Fordham defense. Captain Joe McNulty climaxed the
drive by plunging over on a quarterback sneak from a
yard out. The conversion was successful from a fake
FORDHAM 6 ALL HALLOWS 26
Hoping to regain their winning ways the Prep met
All Hallows on Saturday, October 2 7, at Fordham Field.
It was Navy Day and the Gaels proved more seaworthy
than the Rams. The Prep started off with a bang, ripping
and tearing at a heavy All Hallows line for sizable gains
with John Lomio and Bob Henning doing the ball carry-
ing. Lomio iinally plunged over for the Prep's first and
only tally. Due to Fordham's excellent defense All Hal-
ows didn't score until the third period, when J im Brere-
ton cracked over on the fourth try from a yard out. All
Hallows countered twice more and then finally Lawless
took a pass from Carroll to end the scoring for the day.

Imbibed with the same spirit and fire of last year's

dent body went up to Mt. St. Michael with hopes of
marring the Mount's perfect record. But the Mount
passes spelled doom for a iighting Prep aggregation

Junior Varsihg Basketball
Hampered by the fact that he had discovered next to nothing concerning the
playing calibre of the Junior Varsity basketball squad, since he had arrived at
the Prep less than two weeks before, Coach Joe Varju nevertheless managed to
field a spirited team against Xavier in our opening encounter on December 1.
Although the Junior Ramlets suffered a heartbreaking one-point loss, they re-
bounded strongly to beat St. Ann's on the following Tuesday as several good
players worked their way into the lineup.
The all around aggressiveness of Dan Hughes, the speed of Sal Fiorella, the
deadly lefts of Bill Vallari, the playmaking ability of Larry Freda and the jump
and fight of Johnny Holland soon became evident and the team, working smoothly,
rolled over such highly touted clubs as Mount St. Michael, La Salle, Rice and
Johnny Holland stood out all season long as he amassed a total of eighty-three
points all the while playing great ball under the boards. Johnny was particularly
good against Rice as he scored twelve points to enable the Prep to pull the game
out of the fire and beat a supposedly superior Rice team.
Chuck Cerveni, joe Armas, Jack Byrne, Bob Daley, Bill O'Connell, Jack Shee-
han, Cole Mockler, and Kevin Daley also played steady basketball throughout
the season, showing definite varsity promise while helping the Prep to a record of
nine wins and eight losses in league competition.
Under the direction of Mr. Finnerty, S.J., the Minims enjoyed a satisfactory
season. Their record was seven wins against ten losses, including victories over
Holy Family, Xavier, Brooklyn Prep, Hayes, St. Frances deChantal and two club
teams. The record is much better than it appears on paper due to the fact that a
number of games were lost by only one or two points. Close ones were dropped to
All Hollows, Hayes, St. Peters, and St. Frances.
High scorers for the season were Jim Prather with 119 points, and Freddy
Hughes, .who caged 86 points. Other promising players on the squad were Joe
Quinn, Pierce Kavanagh, Lamont McLoughlin, Bob Mockler, Jim Comyns, Joe
Merenda, Jimmy O'Malley and Matt Robinson. The Minims look forward with
confidence to the newly inaugurated Jesuit Freshman Basketball Tournament in
which they entertain high hopes of annexing the crown.
With no less than six veterans returning from last year's C.H.S.A.A. Bronx-Man-
hattan runners-up, the prospects for the current baseball season are indeed bright.
Under the guidance of Coach McIntyre, the team has been shaping up fast, and
with its combination of veterans and promising rookies, is certain to give the Prep-
sters another strong contender for league honors.
In the infield, Fred Rovet, last year's third sacker, has been moved over to the
important second base spot, because of his great defensive ability. Teamed with
veteran shortstop Ed Abele, another fielding wizard, the Prep once more promises
to field a keystone combination that will be tops in the league, and will feature
snappy double plays. Lefty Bob Henning, a consistent hitter, will once again hold
down iirst base. Rookie Bill Dobbin on third rounds out the well balanced, smooth
The outfield is composed of three new comers. Jim Dwyer, the club's best de-
fensive gardener, will handle the most important berth, left field. Angy Corradino
will cover center Iield and hard hitting Frank Ziccardi, a converted catcher, seems
to have right lield sewed up. The main catching burden will fall to Gardner, a
sharp heads-up ball player with a fine peg.
The pitching staff boasts a quartet of strong hurlers, with Jim Daly leading
the way. Daly, most valuable player in the league last season, will be out to defend
his title as league strikeout king, with his bafliing curve and sizzling fast ball, plus
a world of experience. J im will be well supported by Bill Vallari, another veteran
and two newcomers, Sal Chiramonte and George Kanop. The schedule is as

Coach of the Junior Varsity is Mr. Kirchner and he has a very promising squad
of players out for the season. The schedule is not yet completed, but Mr. Kirchner
has planned a home and home series with the following teams: All Hallows,
Mt. St. Michael, Cardinal Hayes, Power Memorial, Xavier, LaSalle and Regis.
Under the able direction of Coach J' oe Fox, Prep '28, the Track Team is antic-
ipating a very successful season. Jimmy McKeever has been elected captain of
the squad and he has a number of promising runners who will help him place
Fordham Prep high up on the winners of track titles for this year.
Among some of the outstanding prospects, we may name Charlie DiOrio who
is still a second year man but who managed to run away with a number of races last
year. He is a short distance man and concentrates his speed on dash distances.
Besides running, DiOrio does a very good broad jump and will undoubtedly pick
up points in this field event for the team. J oe Bellantoni, also of second year, is a
220 man, while Art Maguire runs the 440. Art was in the indoor track race as
one of the leg men in the relay team from Fordham which established a record
indoor relay mile time. For the half mile, John Maloney is the best prospect, and
he has experience from the indoor team of last season. Others worthy of mention
are Don Anderson and Andy Connolly for the mile, Daley and Baisley for the
high jump and big Ned Curran for the shot put. With the help of these men the
chances of Fordham in outdoor track competition look very bright.
Early in the Fall of 1945, Mr. Lytlle, coach of the swimming
team gathered his forces together in expectation of a heavy but
successful season. Other Catholic schools had become more inter-
ested in swimming and were building powerful teams, teams that
the Prep was to meet. Looking over his squad, he saw that last
year's team was practically intact, a solid foundation on which
to build. It was readily seen that veterans such as O'Ma11ey,
Rooney, Amar, Dixon and DeGaetani, and several new prospects
could be welded into a strong, well balanced team. But, work
was necessary and work became the password. Long, hard prac-
tices every day after class gradually whipped the team into shape.
Wishing to test the strength of this new-formed outfit, the
Coach engaged for a practice meet, the strong All Hallows squad
with its two aces, Burke and Carr. With the experience of several
meets behind them, the All Hallows boys managed to edge out
a slim 30-29 victory. But the meet had done its job in bringing
to the fore the team's major weaknesses, short events and relays.
Once again Mr. Lyttle got the team down to work and set about
finding a remedy for the weaknesses. After consideration, some
of the new recruits were moved into the hundred free style and
into the 200 yard relay. I
A sudden change in schedule and December 14th found the
Prep swimmers once more lined up against All Hallows. But this
time, the Prep was ready and won 30-28. The visitors stood by
amazed as the Fordham team seized 21 of the 29 points for the
first four events. Nine points in two events sealed the victory.
The season was thus successfully started.
Soon after, the tankmen chalked up their second victory with
a 34-24 win over St. John's Prep. In the first heat the medley
relay team of Dixon, Rooney and Moran won easily, followed
by a first in the 50 yard freestyle by Jack Monks. The 220 yard
freestyle resulted in a dead heat. Immediately however, Ford-
ham gained 16 points by a first and second in the 100 yard breast-
stroke by Rooney and O'Malley and also in the 100 yard back-
stroke by Lutz and Dixon. But St. John's did not go down without
a fight and surged back to win the 200 yard relay.
Manhattan Prep was next on the list and with the possibility
of an undefeated season in their eyes, the Fordham team swam
hard and swamped the Manhattanites 31-27. Handicapped early
in the meet by the disqualification of the medley relay, they
nevertheless garnered a first and either second or third in every
event. Rooney and O'Mal1ey again placed one-two for eight points
in the 100 yard breaststroke while Kevin Daley overcame a stiff
lead by an opponent to take first. The gruelling 220 yard free-
style was won by Harry Amar followed quickly by two Manhat-
The following day, Xavier travelled up to Rose Hill, but only
to meet the same fate as its predecessors. In high spirits, from
its victory the day before, the Prep waded in and came out with
a 35-23 win.
A week later, a determined Fordham team, visited Fieldston
and handed them a 37-29 thumping. But this win was not ob-
tained without a bitter struggle. Living up to the standard set
by their former teams, the men from Fieldston fought fiercely be-
fore going down to defeat. The dive was won by Earl Potts in his
first attempt at inter-high school competition.
The next meet was held in Brooklyn Tech pool and resulted
in Fordham's sixth victory, this time over Brooklyn Prep. Start-
ing off right by winning the medley relay, the Maroon went
through five events successfully, taking most of the firsts and
seconds. Only the 200 yard freestyle relay fell short, but by that
time, Fordham was well ahead and won 44-23.
The Jesuit Championships, held at Fordham's pool ended with
the Prep finishing second, five points behind the winner. Defend-
ing his 1945 title, Randall Dixon again won the 50 yard back-
stroke, while jack Monks took the 50 yard freestyle. Power
Memorial was the seventh victim of our strengthening tankmen
by a 47-11 score.
In swimming St. Francis Prep, the Maroon came up against
the most powerful team they had met all year. Strong in every
event, the Red and Blue contested every point, losing by the
narrow margin of 5 points 36-31. The St. Francis men received
their majority of points in three events. Their medley relay of
O'Sullivan, Tierney and Kline won in the good time of 1:36
while their two divers Boland and Carpinello took first and sec-
ond. The two backstrokers of St. Francis also won, but this was
as far as they went. Fordham's first and second in the breaststroke
and in the 220 freestyle, plus the eight points of the 200 yard
relay soon passed their score. Two more Maroon lirsts turned the
St. Francis meet in our 8th victory. Cardinal Hayes added one
more win as on March 6th, the Prep surged through six events to
Receiving its first setback of the season, the Prep lost to a
strong Bishop Loughlin team 37-29. With this defeat, the Prep
mermen became tied with Loughlin for first place .in the CHSAA
league, both teams winning nine and losing one. The score was
evenly divided up to the last event as each team scored consis-
tently. In this last event, the visitors 200 yard relay received the
seven points. A swim-off will be held to determine the league
In the Private School Championship, the Prep came in Sth out
of more than eleven teams entered. Fordham's bright star that
afternoon was Robert Daley as he won the 100 yard breaststroke.
The medley relay team placed third.
The Catholic Championships too, found the Prep as one of its
entries. Surpassing over ten competitors, Tom deGaetani won the
dive for the second year in a row. With places in the finals of the
breaststroke by Paul Rooney and Robert Daley,and the back-
stroke by Randall Dixon, and in the freestyle by Harry Amar, the
Prep was ably represented.
Two final dual meets will bring to a close one of the most active
and successful seasons in Prep swimming history.
