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. ,.. '-.-,Q 41-4- 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 FATHER MULQUEEN, SJ. !

RUDOLPH Charley Rudolph left the Prep in 1944 and .3 milf! 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. Vrglxo Murray, . Kilhenm' fs Reldyf iey Binge Ev0Yv .

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 Fordham Prep. 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 65 K1 a ww 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. . 66 I 1 . Fo H han - , G. Hu l Link- nglef W Lucca, D' CIC:-ileverl A' gexugy R.

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 67 Oates 5 dleyl A Mu r U W 3. B12 .

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 . . .

Nine diehards daily stone Homer in Father Matthews' Greek class while Mr. Shea amazes the "rabble" with 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.

Wolf, ' Junior Hisinrg 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 Prep. 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. Q 76 li'- wa I , E. Pfeufef . -Henning! .1 . Thif h ltz Fr. Harman' S413 gliennedy' T' Kei y h G SC " ' 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 class. 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. 77 Life if S' 5. V ' n ' f Y' 5 ' 5 Q ig. ,X 1 5 , .' . I vp? .

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. 82 X fr Z l' , ,, ,A 0 ,,,- -....,,,,f-- f , '.! -' wr 'F Mild, J .

Freshman Hislurg 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 Prep life. 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 contest. 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. Y 87 , Q nl 4cif""W'5n' ,Ti I ' 5 G 1 E 0 i MSC' Q l -'F A I , f 2 - I .

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 to pay. 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. 89 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- dent body. 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. 90 Knights of the Blessed Sacrament Council 91 Y.. ,.,,.,,- ,-l .

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. . 93 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- lander. ' 94 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. 95 - ...--. --vi L""M"""L'-'ii vi In 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- tive. 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. 96 Bellarmine Debating Society Moderator-Mr. Martin Neylon, SJ. President-John Horan 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 record. 97 Band 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. 98 Dramatic Society Moderator-Mr. John J. Leonard, is.J. President-Edmund G. Ryan, '46 Vice-President-Francis J. Cunnion, '46 Secretary-Hardy L. Nathan, '46 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. 99 A.Jl J- I in r-. "J N. -Ng l- Q04 2:'n'.,i-A., .ggi , ,M """1"1BFb PQ-45, 11 . -u-ii 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 performance. 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 Louis Garcia. 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. lOl , .+ W 3 'ij-I.. ,,,-,4--f F" A ,'.l'.. . n - is vw., -1 - , L'-.

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 Nathan. 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. l I 103 Stage Crew Moderator-Mr. John Leonard, SJ. M anager-Christopher Waldorf Ass't Stage Manager-Paul Lavery 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 104 Ramkin Staff Editor in Chief EDMUND G. RYAN, '46 Chronicles Athletics FRANCIS CUNNION, '46 EDWARD CURRAN, '47 ALAN LYON, '46 THOMAS Ross, '47 ROBERT DALEY, '47 Contributing Editors JOSEPH HAMILTON, '47 DONALD MURRAY, '46 LYNN MARSHALL, '46 GERALD RIPPON, '46 JOHN MCEVOY, '46 ROBERT SWEENEY, '49 JAMES MCKEEGAN, '48 JOSEPH VALERIO, '46 RICHARD VREDENBURGH, '47 Alumni Art DONALD MURRAY, '46 COs1MO CARLUCCI, '46 HARDY NATHAN, '46 THOMAS EGAN, '46 LEOPOLD BELLANTONI, '48 Business Manager JOSEPH DEMELI0, '48 VxRG1N1o CANNAVO, '47 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 l05 Rampart Stall 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: 106 Editors-in-Chief - Donald Murray, '46g Alan Lyon, '46 Sports Editor - John Simermeyer, '46 Frank Cunnion, '46 Randall Dixon, '46 Randall Dixon, '46 Cosimo Carlucci, '46 Edward McNulty, '46 Thomas Brennan, '46 Ned Curran, '47 Paul Benziger, '46 Robert Greeley, '49 Business Manager Edward O'Brien.

President-Raymond Squerciati Vice President-Alan Lyon Secretary-Kenneth Flavia 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 ingenious sound-effects. 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 108 Glee Club 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. l09 Gaelic Culture Club M odetators-Mr. Joseph McKenna, SJ., Mr. Patrick Flood President-Edward McNulty Vice President-John Cummings Secretary-Michael Culhane 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. H0 Camera Club M oderator-Fr. Alfred Purcell, SJ. President-Sylvester Candeloro Vice President-John Cummings Secretary-Renato DiStefano Treasurer-Louis Garcia ' 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, under the direction of Rev. Alfred Purcell, SJ., has had a dark room built in Collins Auditorium for the use of all the members. This dark room was constructed with the aid of the Industrial Arts Club which is under the direction of Mr. Patrick Shea. 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- sity, to be used as the official Fordham Christmas Card. Proof of the artistic ability of the Club is furnished by the numerous pictures supplied to this Year Book. lll Yr.,+ 'L if A 1. T- P' , l W 1 - 172' E Elncutiun Club M oderator-Mr. Robert Gleason, SJ. President-Joseph Hamilton Vice President-John Healy Secretary-John Larkin A 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. ll2 K " ,,..z 1"'l .

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. ll3 W . v , V , Sanctuarg Suciehj Moderator - Mr. Robert Gleason, SJ. President - Francis Cunnion Vice President - Robert Mulligan Secretary - Francis Hughes 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 sacred liturgy. 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. ll4 Tom Dolan, Captain Q guards, Bill Link at center, Jim Daly at quarterback, Don Callahan and Bob Henning at halfbacks and Tom Dolan at fullback, the Prep began its season on October 6th, at Fordham Field. 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. IZ6 Varslhj Fnulhall 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 with a starting team of Keane and Burger at ends, Apple- ton and Burke at tackles, Matzinger and Donoghue at 125 t t 'fi b S w.. ..- .- 1 V ' nn, "..,:u, l 22 fag, 1: '7w',-' wiv A e ' -- 5- , 4 Q 39 .

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. l2l Chess Club King-Mr. Stuart Degginger Queen-Edward McNulty Bishop-John Cummings Rook-Edmund Ryan Pawn-Robert Greeley 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. 120 Q1 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. H9 Q "1 I3 T QF""jlf-it W Hlslnrg Club M oderator-Mr. Alvin Grant President-Arthur Oates Vice President-William Ryan Secretary-Edward McNulty Treasurer-Francis Einterz 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. 118 W l I-I Chemistry Club Moderator-Mr. Edward Taylor, SJ. President-William Heaney Vice President-Paul Lavery Secretary-Theobald Dengler 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. ll? Stamp Club Moderator-Mr. Patrick Shea President-Joseph Hamilton Vice President-Renato Di Stefano Secretary-Virgino Cannavo Treasurer-John Brunner 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. ll6 .. i.l,'Fii I-lrl Club Moderator-Mr. John Leonard, SJ. President-Robert D'Arista W Vice President-Joseph DeMelio 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. 115 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- board. 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 quarter. 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 135 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 Varsitg Basketball 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. 133 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 by default. 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. 132 Cross lfountrq 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. ISI 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. l30 A long pass-incom plete. kick formation when Ripperger plunged over for the 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. 129 McManus skirts rzght end Henning makes long gain ter, after a sustained drive jim Daly faded back and heaved a beautiful pass to Tom Dolan for the Prep's second tally, to make the final score 38-12. 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 128 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. F ORDHAM I2 MT. ST. MICHAEL 38 Imbibed with the same spirit and fire of last year's Brooklyn Prep game the Fordham footballers and stu- 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 Bashing their way through, over and around a surprised Mountie team the Prep tallied in the opening minutes on a pass from Daly to Dolan. Jerry Begley of the Mount then broke loose for 62 yards and a touchdown to knot the score. Out-manned but never out-fought the Prep hammered again and again at the huge Mount forward wall but to no avail. Bruno, Schinnerer and 6'6" Howie Deasy ran ui- the score for the Mount.

I37 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 Manhattan. 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. 138 Minims Basketball 1 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. 139 . PM Varsilg Baseball 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 playing infield. 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 follows: 140 April April April April April May May May May May May May May 7 9 12 26 30 3 7 10 14 17 21 24 28 LaSalle .... Xavier ....... Regis .......... Manhattan Prep . .

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. 141 Track 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. 142 .AL Swimmmg 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 143 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- tan men. 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. 144 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 win 45-21. 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 champion. 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.
