The whole process has been a hectic one a something to he looked back upon and chuckled over when it is past, but a most dreaded reality for the sterner present. Men of '22, the time will come when each of us will say to himself, " O for a chance to get the old crowd together! ” When such time comes, let us take down this tome from its resting place, shake off the dust, then laugh over these memories once more. If after setting it down, we find ourselves as refreshed, as smiling, as young again as we would be if we were to grasp each other by the hand, and hear the old voices, and witness the same old pranks as of yore, this work shall have attained its destined end.

S.J.ED Fordham’s War Mentor ANOTHER page of history was completed when Rather Joseph A. Mulry passed % to his eternal rest. Action was his bv-word while life remained within his manly form, llis commanding appearance; that musical tone of voice, and his accomplishments gained immediate favor at Kordham. During the war, as speaker for the Liberty Loans, Father Mulry’s appeals met with instant response from all sides; as our Rector, with a characteristic fatherly spirit, lie worked untiringly and solicitously for all true Fordhani sons. When Father Mulry talked on patriotism you could feel the earnestness of his words. From the cradle up. he breathed the free American air. At his birth in New York City forty-seven years ago, we might say American spirit and ideals took firm root in him. and waxed stronger as the promising youth grew to manhood. St. Francis Xavier’s claims him as Alumnus, but Fordham University can justly lay stronger claim to this great man, as its leader and father from 1915 to 1919, a man young in years, kind and noble at heart and in action, yet with a sternness which you felt ashamed to face, when right was tampered with. Father Joseph Mulry. Catholic priest. American soldier, ex-1’resident of Fordham University, devoted his whole life to his fellowmen. even to that last breath which closed his career on this earth, and ushered him into the presence of his well-deserved reward with God on the thirty-first day of August, nineteen hundred twenty-one.SM r.

Our steps sound upon the walks. Our voices fill the halls. Our ' eyes behold in wonderment the licauties of the place. Our intellects strive to appre- ciate. But we matriculate, cultivate and graduate. Our sheepskin bears the name of St. John's College, and of Fordham University. There is the imprint of the seal. Yes a different seal, if we care to take note, from that which adorns the College magazine, and stands out so prominently on our class rings. And more—we go out into the world of business and talk with people. A graduate of Fordham University! Fine! The chair moves closer. How fortunate (?) Old memories to Ik revived! Conversation turns on the old Lady of Mercy Church, where many a Fordham lass blushingly suffered the long-yearned tor osculation; the old Rose Hill Manor House, where Washington is reputed to have made frequent visits, and Fcnimorc Cooper to have laid the scene of the "Spy"; the later Manor House with its extensions and cross extensions; old Second Division, the Castle, the Quadrangle, the old wooden Third Division, and the stationery shop; the bakery where wiser hoarders instinctively halted betimes; the skating pond, where hearts heat light and muscles tired: the Cadet Corps, where minds were trained and wills accustomed. Oh. host of memories, fond joys to our guest in his recollections: for us. no recollection, no foundation—a lost world of delights. But how emliarrassing we must feel at times? What does the seal signify? Whence comes the name Fordham. and whence St. John's College? Wr hope no Fordham man will say. "I don't know." The Manor of Fordham was incorporated in the township of Westchester in 1788. and later in the township oi West Farms when it was formed in 1846. By 1895 all the Bronx had been annexed to New York City. The first mention we hear if Fordham i in 1673 in letters patent issued by Governor Lovelace, granting the Manor of Fordham to John Archer. By his purchases from Flias Doughty, of Long Island, and from the Indians. John Archer eventually l ccamc seized in fee of 1.253 acres. On May 3. 1669. Governor Francis Lovelace gave Archer leave to settle sixteen families on the mainland near "the wading place” (Spuytcn Duyvil Creek). Upon November 13. 1671, Lovelace erected the whole into an unfranchised township to be held by Archer under the feudal lordship of (lie Duke of York. A Manor grant was issued to Archer (1673). The name given the Manor was Fordham. derived from the parish of the same name in Norfolk. England. Bolton tells us. while Scliarf attributes the name Fordham—foord. a ford or wading place: and ham. a mansion—to the founding of the village (houses) at the ford (Spuyten Duyvil). We are inclined to favor Scharf's interpretation, especially since Archer’s new possessions arc described in the deed as “situate upon the main continent lying to the eastward of the Harlem River, near unto ye passage commonly called Spiting Devil, upon which ye New Dorp or village is erected, known by the name of Fordham." The Manor included what is now known as Kingsbridge. Fordham. High Bridge, Belmont and William’s Bridge Archer gave three mortgages to Cornelius Steenwyck. and as security handed over the deeds of the Manor. Archer was unable to pay back the debt, and thus the Manor fell to the mortgagee by foreclosure. By the will of Steenwyck. 1694. the whole Manor was left to "the elders of the Nether Reformed Dutch Congregation, and their heirs and successors and 25|K)sk n(y." About (In’s lime, or several years before, the Manor was parcelled out into several farms, cue of which. Rose Hill, was bought by the Corsa family. The Old Manor House of legendary fame was the birthplace of Benjamin Fletcher Corsa. 1692. and stood the test of time and weather until 18%. when it was destroye 1 to give place to the Auditorium erected in 1903. The old homestead had long served as the College infirmary. From the Corsa family. Rose Hill passed into the hands of John Watts. During the Revolutionary War it belonged to Robert Watts, whose daughter was the wife of Lord Stirling, a major-general under Washington. In 1824 Rose Hill liecame the property »f Elias Urevoort. who in 18.16 sold it to Horatio Shephard Moat. In 1838 Moat built the stone house which is now the Administration Building of the College. In 1S39, through Andrew Carrigan. the new house with a farm of 98 acres was purchased by Bishop John Hughes for the sum of $30,000. An additional $10,000 was expended in adapting the old stone mansion for scholastic purposes. The Archbishop decided to transfer the Ecclesiastical Seminary, at that time located at Lafargeville, in Jefferson County, to Fordham. The seminarians were thus brought down to Rose Hill. The present chapel of the Parthcnian Sodality on the second floor of the Administration Building served as study hall and classroom. The seminary was established under the patronage of St. Joseph. Italian Lazarists were in charge, with Father Felix Villanis as Superior. Father McCloskey (later the first American Cardinal) was appointed President of the institution. On June 24. 1841. the feast day of St. John the Baptist, the College was formally opened. To satisfy a patent need for lodgings. St. John’s Hall was built in 1845 from stone quarried on the College grounds. The old Church next to the Hall was built at the same time Tin students were transferred to the new hall, at that time known as St. Joseph’s Seminary. The number of professors was still small. Bishop Hughes, contemplating a change in the management of the College, made overtures to the fesuits of St. Mary’s College. Kentucky. The St. Mary’s Jesuits accepted and agreed to pay jf40.000 for the establishment exclusive of the ( luirch and seminary. The buildings were purchased in 1800 at a cost of $45,000. On April 10. 184o. a short time Ik-fore the vanguard of the Jesuits arrived from Kentucky, the College was incorporated and given the power of granting degrees in theology, law. medicine and arts. Fathers Thebaud and Murphy were the first to arrive from Kentucky. April. 1846. During the vacation, the entire Kentucky community was transported to Fordham, and in August the transfer of property was completed, and Augustus J. Thebaud. S.J.. appointed first I’resident under the new regime. The Jesuits had to re-establish the college, conduct their own scholastirate and novitiate and take care of the seminary. CARDINAL MrCl.OSKF.Y 26The Jesuits had chosen an ambitious task in their four-fold undertaking. It was not until 1869. twenty-three years after they had taken over the Rose Hill institution, that they were finally enabled to direct their undivided efforts to the development of the College. In 18 19 the novices were sent to Montreal. in I860 the seminary was moved to Troy (from where it was transferred to its present location at Dunwoodic. 1896). St. Joseph’s Seminary and the Church were then purchased from the Archbishop for 845.000. The seminary building (now St. John's Hall) was made the residence of the Superior of the Mission, and a House of Retreats. It was named Manrcsa. the predecessor of the present establishment on Staten Island. Manresa was short-lived, however, for four years later (1864 i the scholasticate was reopened in the old seminary, where it remained until 1869, when it was removed to Woodstock. There now remained but the College. Thus we have the beginnings of the Fordham of today. The College was called St. John's. Ixxause it was formally opened on the feast of St. John the Baptist. June 24. 1841. The College lias undergone great changes since its founding. To record all these changes in their causes, nature, and extent would take far too much space, and since the various evolutions would often necessitate a recurrence to periods many times discussed, the result would be rather Iroresomc. to say the least, to the reader. Our list of dates together with the cuts will further help to give a clear idea »f the metamorphosis of the grounds and buildings, while reference to the various college activities in other parts of this book will serve to acquaint the reader with the successes and difficulties which accompanied their growth. St John's Mali is a s]xrial center of interest. It was built to meet a necessity'. Time and again has it been repaired and remodelled to meet an emergency. Seminarians. Cadet Corps, Grammar .School. Prep, youngsters, are part of its history. The older members of the Student Army Training Corps enjoyed its quaint interior as they meditated on their cots— forgetful of the quick-course lieutenants and the would-be commissioned, or sergeants. The furrowed and weather beaten exterior brings us hack to ‘45. sixteen years before the terrible clash Utweeii North and South. The trim, richly fitted out interior transports us to '20. the first year of |»eacc after five years of world turmoil. Adjoining the hall is a little College Church, once called "Our Lady of Mercy Church." and used by' the people of the vicinity until June. 189.1. when the Parish was transferred to the Archbishop, and a disused hall on Pelham Avenue was made the new Parish Church But we wish to call special attention to the Central Building of the institution, the Admin-traticn Building with its extensions. Two reasons prompt us to center attention about this building. First because the Administration Building, or the later Rose Hill Manor House (18o8» is often confused with the Old Manor House, which had the traditions of the Revolution. The Old Manor House, long used as the College Infirmary, was demolished in 1896 to give place to the Auditorium, which was constructed in 1903. Our second reason is that the cause of fond memories in the minds of older Fordhaiuitcs means nothing to us of today. For the Castle, the Quadrangle, Old Second Division and Old Third Division no longer exist. Other buildings too. have been demolished, but with the exception of the old infirmary they entered not the life of the student of those days. 28But lrt ii' go hack to 1889 or 1890. Passing out through the rear door of the old Mansion, you step into a long, narrow extension of three stories, containing the music rooms, porter's lodge, wardiolie and Community Library. The extension formerly connected with the old Second Division building, which was torn down in the summer of 1891. Stepping from the door at the right of this passage, you find yourself within the historic Quadrangle, formed by the extension just described, the chapel and another extension that ran at right angles with the chapel and joined it to the brick building known as the Castle. Today Second Division and the Faculty Building fulfil the functions of the cross extensions. The lawn in the rear of the Administration Building, which for a time enshrouded the fond marks of antiquity, has itself been replaced by a wide driveway, around a long, narrow elliptical 'trip of lawn, in the center of which i' a fountain presented to the College by the Class of ’21. On the southern end of the ellipse, facing toward the ball field is the statue erected by the Partheniaii Sodality. 1887. which once occupied the center of the Quadrangle. On the northern end is a statue of the Sacred Heart, erected. 1911, by a '97 Alumnus. The garden, out houses and barns are no more. The skating pond on either side of the road that ran behind the wall of the cemetery and on to the Southern Boulevard has long ceased to exist. The old tennis courts—those behind Third Division, those between Junior and Senior Halls, and those to the north of Junior Hall—have given way to the splendid tennis courts and clubhouse, ushered into being with the administration of the late Father Mulry. Lawns mark the site of the old Senior court, and of the College garden. The K. of C Hut. built in the Fall of 1918, helps to til! the gap of the old Junior courts. To the north of the present courts is a new athletic field, where but a few years hack were meadows In the Fall of 1905 the hrst classes in Law and Medicine were begun. On March 7. 1907, the corporate name of the institution was changed to Fordham University. Thus has Fordham evolved. Even during the last three years wonderful changes have taken place, and. under the careful superintendence of Father Bertolero. the walks have all been modernized. We cannot close without a word about the “pill lx x.” that square one-story building to the west of St John’s Hall, built in 1840 and used by the early seminarians as a lodging house, prior to the construction of the Seminary. It was afterward the residence of the parish priest, and many a villager crossed over the tracks of the Harlem Railroad, then on a level with Webster Avenue, and through the creaking turnstile to this little lodging. In late years it has served as infirmary. Officers’ Hall and the meeting place of the College societies. At present it is the alxide of "The Ram” and "The Fordham Monthly." The little extension on the left is the bakery which was once situated in the old Third Division. the Fordham we all know today. Knowing it. we can unhesitatingly and confidently enlighten any interested questioner upon Fordham and her wonderful growth And at last the commanding figure of Archbishop Hughes standing on his j cdcstal before the Administration Building may come to mean something to all of us. This. then, has been the romantic development of 30Rectors Cardinal John McCloskcv............1841-1843 Rev. John B.

John A. McGuireTHE days of our Junior year were yet young when a rangy youth of the ’varsity type breezed into our midst one morning and went directly to the head of the class—with the name of Amlicke. Originally a member of the class of 1923, “Ammie” deserted his fellows by skipping Sophomore; and. casting his lot with us. he was received with due hospitality, rapidly acquired the dig-niiicd mien of an upperclassman, and has since remained faithful to the fold. II is quiet composure upon the rostrum and the ease with which he dabbled in “logical ’ complications soon found favor with the boys, and “Ammie” was readily voted a worthy adjunct to the class. A “mighty man with the palaver.” it has eased him around many a dangerous corner in his philosophic excursions. “Ammie” hails from Passaic, and though his home town lies many parasangs from the Great White Way, lie has seldom missed a “hop” and in the social whirl has been one of the luminaries of our number. It was indeed a study in finesse to behold him at times—a beaker of Ceylon poised to a nicety, and some winsome llapper near at hand completely intrigued by his hardy “line.” “Our Jersey country clubs certainly ’throw’ some smooth parties," lie often assures us. Xext year "Ammie” will devote himself to the pursuit of law. and we feel sure that in years to come the name of Amlicke will be a respected one in our halls of justice and that his quaint humor will lighten many a weary legal hour. V fc0AM" Beatty comes from the Bronx and reaps at least one advantage there-from. Living within a “stone’s throw” of the College, he can hide well his time—yet always has to hurry. This seeming paradox admits of easy explanation. After languishing next the ‘‘home fires" until five minutes of nine, he then “loops it” across the fields to the classroom, generally arriving on time. This youth could boast (if he wished) of never having viewed the campus before the “semi-final” bell, but, unlike us poor unfortunates who, forced to rely upon the vagaries of the transit system, reach school either very early or verv late. “Sam ar-rives at least on time; and that suffices. But if he wastes no precious moments before the opening of class, he more than makes up for them at the close of school, especially during the football and baseball seasons. There you can see him any afternoon that these respective teams are practising, eagerly following the progress of the Varsity. The particular “sport” at which “Sam” excels is mathematics in any form; and he once exhibited this to advantage before a Physics “Prof" who. for a whole lecture period propounded a series of difficult queries. Fortune has blessed this Fordhamite with a good head and he is what is usually termed “naturally bright.” He is also of a rather curious turn of mind, judging from his quite frequent queries in the classroom, and the immortal Cicero assures us that all these qualities combined bespeak certain future success for Samuel Goodwin Beatty. LaJ JOSEPH BERM IN GUAM.. I.B. "rermy,” “rip" Regis High School Class Baseball (1) ; Class Boxing (1) ; Fordham Co., 69th Reg. (3,4) IX the fall of 1918 there came to Fordham the first contingent from Regis, and numbered among the throng was "Joe Rermingham. Quiet and unassuming in manner. "Rermy" has always been well-liked, a fellow to do things, and not talk about them. Where his support was required, he could always be relied upon, be the activity one of college or class. During the past four years, there have been few games at Fordham that "Rermy has not attended. Beneath glaring sun of June or leaden sky of autumn, he always could be found among the cohorts of the cheering section with his pal, "Johnnie" Corr. Throughout their college career, he and John have been as inseparable as Page and Shaw. When you saw one. you could safely wager the other was not far distant. “Benny’s" interest has not been confined to athletics, however. Things intellectual have also claimed his attention. Although always present at the college plays and the intercollegiate debates, on no occasion has he brought a member of the fair sex within the precincts of the campus. Apparently “Bermy" is beyond the pale of “flapper” wiles. However, we cannot forget the adage about “still water.” One never knows—it may be a different story off the campus! When "Rermy" goes out in June. Fordham will lose a son as loyal as ever trod the elm-lined path, and we all wish him the success that will be due his perseverance when he transfers his efforts to the business world.T T ALLY’’ has been with us only a year. But the expectant searching of his V classmates, to which every new arrival is subjected, has disclosed an earnest result-getting student, a-man who observes and digests much and says little. a true friend and friend-maker and a loyal Fordhamite. . When not deeply engrossed in some book. “Wally” can always find time, provided he can find an opponent, to debate upon some pet theories of his. For be it known that "Wally” is a dabbler in the higher arts and sciences. To him the most prepossessing and most inexhaustibly discussable topic is chemistry—a subject upon which he is willing, nay anxious, at any and all times to present and defend his theorizations. But “Wally” does not confine his activities to the classroom and the laboratory. Although "crawling” about a swimming pool is his forte, he is equally as enthusiastic and interested wherever any branch of athletics is concerned. He manages, however, to maintain a due equilibrium by the performance of other less strenuous though more genteel gyrations—about the waxen floor, and here he shows himself to be as accomplished as he is in book lore. From all this it can be seen that "Wally” is a man who appreciates the common sense of so distributing one’s talents and activities in divers fields as to develop more roundly the fuller man. This, with an easy determination and a likeable smile, would seem to indicate that "Wally" i already well along toward his chosen goal.HOWARD J. I JO V LAX. AM. “senator" “KEWI'IE” THE first glimpse we had of Howard was in a smart-fitting sailor suit (it had to he to surround his generous proportions), when he was one of the “ladies of the Lake” in that never-to be-forgotten S. A. T. C. During his term of active service. Howard was compelled to do all his sleeping in a soundproof telephone l ooth. owing to the tact that he was the owner of an extremely effective pair of lungs, so effective that sufficient passage could not he found for their inhalations and exhalations—with a resulting noise that would put to shame any of the radiators in St. John's Hall. After the sailors “cast anchor” and once more donned their “civies,” and all the necessary repairing had been completed in the Alumni Rooms which had been their “ship," 1 loward made his reappearance among us as a Freshman early in 1919, rounding out a successful year in June. He liked Fordham so well that he spent the next two years at LJrooklyn College, during which time we lost track of him entirely. However, the fall of 1921 saw him in our midst once again, and all this year we have enjoyed his infectious laughter and vari-colorcd cravats, at the same time missing his nocturnal ramblings up and down the diatonic scale—for he commutes daily from Brooklyn, traveling in the sleepers. Howard is possessed of all the necessary requisites for success, and we feel confident that a brilliant career awaits him in whatever profession he chooses to follow. Brooklyn Prep.

But since “Joe” took I I to making- announcements, “now listen, fellows.” is his pet. “Joe” Boylan came to Fordham in 1918, still clothed in the studious atmosphere of Regis High School. A philosopher, in the nominal sense, he was hungry for knowledge and falsely assumed that all others were. too. “Joe” made you feel obligated to argue with him on class matter, and often have we played the unwilling sophist. In the first two years, our student was well up among the class leaders. Then came the metamorphosis. As assistant cheerleader. the erstwhile “philosopher’s” How of energy now had a tributary, which in Senior year was itself a river, too often stronger even than its parent. A man is not educated unless he can use his knowledge. So in his dogged way “Joe” argued with and won the fair sex. Freshman and Sophomore were too engrossing for the captivator to have more than a “steady.” But the last two years! Oh ! What fair damsel has not longed for his company, or regret-fullv bid him “good night.” after a terpsichorean entertainment. “Joe Bus” rose to prominence and, incidentally, received the new appellation. in his untiring efforts to make successful a contemplated bus-trip to Washington. Though the bus made a poor boat in Conowingo Creek, yet in preparations for the trip, “buzz-boss ' displayed an enviable optimism and perseverance. That stick-to-it spirit will bring “Joe” Boylan safely over the bridges of difficulty and diversity to the Capitol of Success.HARRY W. BURGESS, BS. “small buy,” “h alkie" St. John’s Prep. Brooklyn, N. Y. St. John's College. Brooklyn (1. 2) ; Class Baseball (3, 4» : Class Football (3. 4) CALIFORNIAN redwoods have nothing on Harry. Tall, imposing, statuesque —he is a vestige of the Homeric Age. In fact, the Greek poet would have been tickled silly to wander a few more years just to sing the praises of our hero’s size. I lowever, his bigness isn't limited to physical proportions. His outlook, his heart, his traits are big. We met him in Junior, and since then we have daily realized that within his massive frame lies an “inner man" big in quality, strength and durability. Harry's forte is “stepping out." He is rabid for tea. dates and dance orders. Occasionally, he slips away quietly on an "evening for two" and his appointment book is always Idled. We see a reason for all this. His Chcstcrficldian swagger and Beau Brummel swank are enough to get anybody, not mentioning the fair sex at all! Our friend has an avocation—Algebra as taught at St John's. We seek not to disparage any institutions of learning and so we say that Harry’s comprehension of the duties of x and y is but a subjective misconception of objective truth. Yet. we “bet" the “odds' arc against you if you should engage him in mathematical combat. He is a devotee of judiciary systems; his exemplar of justice is the Traffic Court, and he knows his matter, too. Harry has impressed us. We shall not forget him. In future years when our grandchildren are wrestling with Psychology's perplexities we shall say: “Chil- dren. aright yourselves, consult Burgess' latest volume “Darwin Refuted!"GEORGE A.

Furthermore, when he accomplishes big things, he performs unto an end—which indicates brains, and lots of them. He is a man of parts, and, like “Omnis Gallia,’ may be divided into “tres partes”—student, business man and social lion. Energy marks him. Couple to this a wholesome steadiness of thought, a constancy of splendid disposition and a wealth of good fellowship, and you have him. Thoroughbreds usually lead the race on the last lap. Our George is a thoroughbred ; all of which means that he is President of the Class of 1922. ()ne by one his sterling qualities unfolded themselves to us—not in a blare of trumpets, but quietly and in a manner discouraging of publicity. As Lincoln said. “You can’t fool all the people all the time,” so with George. I le couldn’t expose his wares and get away with it. So, following logically upon goodness came reward—the Presidency of the Senior Class. Our friend likes to trip the light fantastic. Relieve us. loo. lie sure can trip. 1 le likes “other things” also.

CANNING “al” Cathedral College (1.2. 3) A WELCOME addition to our number this past year was “ Al” Canning, who came to Fordham as one of the delegation from Cathedral College. Since, ilue to the stress and strain of a Senior's many cares. “ Al" and ourselves have not become as thoroughly acquainted as we would, and since “Al” is known to us only in his soft-spoken, quiet way, we have had to appeal to his Cathedral friends for information about this comely and blooming young gentleman. And our expectations have been satisfied. To gaze at "Al" as he scoops ’em up and crashes ’em out on the baseball field, it would be hard to believe that this is the contained and quiet student of the classroom. Gone is the unassuming demeanor and in its place reposes a goodly quantity of what everyday parlance has christened “pep.” l’he game over, another transformation occurs and we have again the dignified Senior we all know. Here indeed is a dual personality. “Al's” chief intellectual pastime is the comprehensive study of Shakespeare, and upon occasion he will quote you ream after ream from his favorite author's works. )ur habitually philosophic minds bid ns seek out the “finis operands’’ in all this literary interest, and we are inclined to believe that "Al” is secretly developing his talents toward the nurturing of the idea of one day joining the “sock-lniskiners.” lint whatever may he the occupation which fate or choice assigns him, we feel sure that the smiling geniality and energetic studiousness of “Al” Canning will accomplish therein unbounded success.ALBERT Cl NELLI. BS. “al,” “the duke" Fordham Prep. Chairman. Pre-Med. Dance Committee (1. 2) : Manager. Pre-Mcd. Basketball and Baseball (1, 2) ; Football Squad (1); Class Football 3. 4i; Captain (3) IF you’ve ever been around to “Al's" palatial Bronx residence, and supped of vintage from the vines of sunny Italy, you know why “Al” is called “The Duke.” Our nobleman is steady and cool and hence seldom does the regrettable. In his actions, he has grown-up dignity, yet in football or handball his whole self is in the game with the “pep” of a schoolboy, and the calm head work of a seasoned player. "Al” Cinelli was co-temporary with us in receiving the Prep, passport to college. We went our ways, and the practical “Duke” passed up the Arts for the more immediately serviceable Pre-Mcd. As embryonic doctor. “Al" was lost to us academically, but when a Pre-Med “hop” was on. he could be seen quietly wending his way to the home of his Dulcinca, from which, hand in hand, they went forth to conquer the ballroom. And mark well, our knight was in the circle of the merriest, with bis characteristic pep and joviality mixed in proper proportion with a truly manly dignity. And thus “Al” received a well-rounded Pre-med. training. V But the wily “Duke" foxed us. After sailing to the end of Pre-Med science, our hero judged Philosophy necessary, and hastened overland to the placid waters of Arts Lake, there to imbibe with us. If Al’s vocational aptness simulates his academic deliberateness bis mark is made.tMUDM Ilolyokc, in the vicinity of Springfield, Mass., “Coscy” Collins set I out in quest of knowledge. Like Jason of old, he went north, south, east and west, and finally settled upon Fordham as the ultimate “con-ferrer” of his degree. “Charlie” has “sampled” every school that the comparatively short high school and college courses will allow, hut the fact remains that he hit upon Fordham before it was too late. Therefore, we have known him for but two years, long enough, however, to “take off our hats” to the unknown genius who gave him his nickname. We know not its ultimate source, but we can. as in psychology, argue from characteristic facts to its adequacy. Difficulties or trouble mean nothing to “Coscy,” except to increase the “wonder and amaze” of his fellows, for he has a genius for wriggling out of them. He will tolerate nothing tending to disturb the serenity of his course of life and is generally well supplied with what he himself calls “the dope” for the subject at hand. But then promiscuous use of it as all times is apt to merit professorial censure (cf. astronomy Prof). Withal, “Charlie” is a good “bye" and possessed of a generous heart. If he has the “dope,” he is at least willing to share it. If he is always looking to his own comfort, he is equally solicitous for that of the other fellow. An uncanny ability for offsetting trouble and a good disposition! How well-equipped to face the outside world!EXE" lias been with us but a year, and this would appear to be occasion I -w for knowing very little about him: but young men with a host of good qualities do not, as a rule, require a four-year acquaintanceship to make manifest their assets. Cathedral is the College that absorbed three years of this youth's attention, but upon our own institution of learning devolves the opportunity of conferring his degree. A rare smile, a keen sense of humor and an uncanny ability for making friends signalize the above-mentioned qualities; but with Shakespeare, we do not base our entire estimate of his character on the “smile." For, when a thing docs not meet with his approval, his blue eyes frown momentarily and lie manifests an equally characteristic determination behind the smile. The same quiet attitude, however, that marks his manner hides his accomplishments. It was only from a few stray phrases of his low-voiced utterances that we received any notion of his knowledge of acting; hut upon further inquiry into other sources, we learned the “Mimes and Mummers" have been missing the services of a Thespian of no mean ability. ‘‘Gene” would not tell you all that! Unassuming to a marked degree, lie lets his qualities speak for themselves. In his short stay among us, he has made many new friends and we pride ourselves on being able to enjoy the companionship of a pleasing personality.2$ JAMES V. CO NX ELLY, AM. % JIM M IE St. Francis Xavier High School Class Baseball (1): Team Captain Fordham Drive (J): Class Treasurer (4). AYOl'XG Ilian of small stature, with light, golden locks softly pushed back off his prominent forehead; light blue eyes filled with warmth and feeling; a well-shaped, smiling mouth that often opens suddenly to allow a high piping voice to rush forth in defense of any principle that is challenged—“Jimmie ’ Connelly, folks—meet him. Yet. at every class meeting, this same voice can be heard entreating, beseeching his fellow classmates to “come across with that half-a-case." Yes, “Jimmie” is Class Treasurer and he has been trying to collect that “half-a-case” all year. He can’t be severe with the delinquents but just smiles and says, "That’s all right. Give it to me some other time.” Coupled with this pleasant manner is a certain steadiness and stick-to-it-iveness that places him, high, on the list in his scholastic endeavors. “Jim” is continually holding his own among the bright lights of the class and that same voice of his can be heard always ready to answer any difficulty that is put in his way in the realms of Psychology and Ethics. Put "Jimmie” is not all student. "Everything in its proper place” is his slogan: and he puts it into practice upon occasion. At the social, he can be seen dancing around with grace and ease; his characteristic voice can be heard at the games, and again in the Council of Debate. “Jim” has the right idea—"There is nothing like a well regulated life.” and it is just this rule that will place him. later on, among those who have achieved happiness and success.ThllS youth, besides being bright, takes studying as a matter of course; which speaks well for his teachers at Trinity High School—where, incidentally, he “starred” on a championship basketball team. Before going further, we wish to deny vigorously the application of the odious term "cake-eater” To young John T.—for thus is lie often referred to by outsiders, merely because he chooses to wear light hats, and dress in a manner becoming his good looks! This denial, we admit, i based only upon our immediate knowledge of him and of his spirit of aloofness toward all class social functions, for of course we know nothing of his social activities over in his beloved C.reen-point. As "end” on the class football eleven, he caught forward passes with the same facility and aptitude with which he grasped ideas in logic—and he was one of those chosen to represent us in the annual specimen. "Jack” is one of the “kids’’ of the class, since, as a Pre-Law student, he has been with us but two years; and. with the wonder and inquisitiveness of youth, will accept anything you tell him with a dreamy stare from those baby-blue eyes of his! "Jack's” ambition is to be a lawyer; a lawyer’s chief duty is to plead, and if for such a thing anyone has a better asset than lie, with those aforementioned blue eyes, we’d like to know. In We wish you all success in the field of Law, "Jack!”JOHN A. CORK, A.B. “JOHNNIE," “HANDY ANDY" Regis High School Debating Society (2) ONCE upon a time, somebody told us never to talk about a man unless we had something good to say. Now, we have plenty of good things to say about “Johnnie,’' even though he does not say very much himself. Silent, but not morose, still, but not unthinking, John entered Fordham from the pioneer class of Regis, determined, maybe, “to do or die,” but rather, we think, to take things as they came and to make the best of them. A philosopher from the start, we envied him; for we could not help thinking that he was possessed of other worlds than ours, fairer and with less care. For when the storms of teachers lashed against our shores, John sailed on serene. What was his magic “Sesame"?— wc must keep secret lest we blush to say the art was not our own. To the world at large, an owl-like stare gave the look of great learning; and, awed, wc too forehore to seek beyond that frowning ridge the pleasant valleys within. But behind those solemn glasses a clear blue eye twinkled and laughed when the face refused to change; no wisp of wit escaped him. no humor passed unseen. The commonplaces of college life did not attract him and behind his name stands no array of titles: hut for all that, we feel his presence and we brand him as our own. Good-bye, John, good-bye! If all the world would work as you have done, might it not be a little brighter? Then, “to the fight.“ and we’re behind you to the last man.  VINCENT R. CORROU, BS. "Vinnik ' "pax" Assumption High School, Utica Ring Committee (3) ; Asst. Mgr. Bas-kethall (3); Mgr. Basketball (4) TIIH wonderful success of the basketball team this season is directly traceable to the efforts of one Vincent Corrou, who is perhaps better known by the pseudonym of “Dangerous Dan." Dan is one of those serious-minded individuals who produce results and never talk about them. As far as an outsider could learn from Dan’s own lips, he might be a non-entity in the college world; but from his many admirers volumes of information may be gleaned. Combined with the ability to manage a winning basketball team. “Dan" has a most pleasing personality. He has a sense of humor, and despite his somewhat lugubrious expression, he is an able raconteur. Among his fellow residents in St. John's Hall "Dan" is rated very highly, not only for his achievements hut also for his sympathetic nature. That he is of a studious turn of mind is attested to by the fact he was awarded a Knights of Columbus Scholarship for four years. This requires the holder to attain a certain mark in all his courses and this means plenty of close application and good hard work. Because of his taciturnity we have been able to find little about his life in Utica. We have a sneaking feeling that “Dan" lias someone up-State who is constantly in his thoughts. There must be; for rarely have we heard him dilate upon the pulchritude of the New York girls, and when a man refuses to acknowledge the superiority of New York members of the Genus Flapper there must he a reason. We venture to predict that when “Dan” goes out into the world his genial manner with his business ability will place him in the ranks of die foremost. : ' - - ■ STUDENTS’ LIBRARY ST.

While a hearty devotee of the lighter side of college life, he was never known to spurn the cup of learning. When he is privileged in June to pin the title "Baccalaureatus Scientiarum" to his name, the honor will be well deserved for he has always been well up among the foremost in the class rating.

Despite this full day. he manages occasionally to get out on the open road; for he is a faithful camp-follower of the baseball team.

Add to this “determined” and you have his entire character. Though he tries his hand at any baseball or handball game that is going on. Maurice’s chief claim to athletic fame arises from his playing tennis with “Big Tim” McNamara. Incidentally we can kill the proverbial "two birds” by remarking and applauding the powers of discernment exhibited by each of them in their choice of companions. Tn a quiet manner, “Hap” has worked his way into the hearts of his classmates and especially those of his nearer friends; and we will always remember the lad with the genial disposition, trusting—nay expecting, that his quiet, successful way through college is a happy forerunner of the manner in which he will tread life's path. 1 ------------------------------------------------------GERALD J.

There is no length to which he would not go to aid you or help you. for he is always willing to fight for his friends and his convictions. e feel safe in asserting moreover. that "Ted" Galloway is the most popular man in the college today. He is eminently a reasonable man. We cite an instance.

Perhaps he lacks that “collegiate” atmosphere—brogues and flat hats and herringbones and tweeds- but he more than makes up for the absence of these accidents in the genuineness of his ability. “Doc" can speak French fluently, knows a little Spanish and some Italian; he can intelligently discuss any of the arts—music, painting, sculpture, literature; sciences are his toy-things, philosophy his obsession. All this was not learned within the college gates. When the soft strains of a sweet violin have stirred our feet to measured rhythm, “Doc” was burning the midnight oil, buried in some arclie-ologic volume; where we have paused at passing things, he has probed the great immortals. Ours has been the pleasanter life, but who has been the gainer? Fordham may know him only in musty record books, but when “Doc” has made his mark and startled an indifferent world to action, then will each son of !22 turn to these pages, and breathe the homely platitude, "I told you so."MILTON V. HAYDEN, like the proverbial cat. always comes back. This needs explanation. “Milt" and we at times lost one another in the maze of life’s contestants. Then Milton would crop up again. But once our inevitable classmate left the narrow fields of learning to investigate the more responsive world. Yet for some reason the lost one came back. Milton speaks only in the present, so we know little of his past and oi his future. The reason we know anything at all of his past is the fact that we note the present before letting it go by. His future, likewise, is read from his present actions, and thus we can imagine Attorney Hayden exultantly quizzing a bus corporation president, and even greater game. This man of mystery is apparently apathetic toward “doll faces,’ but just feign disinterestedness, and watch Milton brighten as his absorbing gaze lights on some sweet fluttering “squab" passing by. But why is Milton so reticent as regards himself? Is he bashful or unambitious? Oh. no! Our friend is cosmopolitan and while he lacks Mac-bethian ambition, still he has aspirations. Already has he started his forensic career and with his confrere. “Bill" McCarthy, dexterously juggles tomes of litigation. But perhaps “Milt" figures that to speak of himself has a possible tendency toward future disappointment for interested parties, while to remain silent on the question facilitates great and unexpected surprise. There’s the “mot de I’enigme’’ without a doubt.Saint Joseph’s Prep. St. Joseph’s College (1. 2) Varsity Football. Baseball. Basket ball (3. 4) "lou” LOlTS A. HEALEY, A.B. IX the fall of 1920, when the Class of '22 assembled to assume the burdens of Junior Philosophy, there were many new additions to our old class, and as we scanned their anxious countenances our eyes were forced to linger upon that of Louis A. Healey, who had come to us heralded as an athlete, a student and a good fellow. This is quite a reputation to live up to. but “Lou" has done it; and of those who have known him, none has ever seen him fall short of their expectations. We arc proud of him. even though he does hail from the city of Trenton—a handicap ordinarily great enough to ruin the aspirations of the most valiant: hut “Lou" overcame it. When the football season opened, we found “Lou" at end displaying a courageous use of his knowledge of the game. It was generally known that few of the veterans would grace the team the following year; but when the line-up was announced, there was “Lou" at end. and he played in such a way that none could displace him. Basketball is his strong point and it need only be said that in every game in which he participated, lie was a shining light, making clear the way to victorv. These are but few of his qualifications. In a word, he is a worthy son of Fordham, and our only regret is that the first two years of his college life were not spent with us. so that we could have benefitted by his valuable services and enjoyed his excellent comradeship.

His is the keen analytical mind of the philosopher and dialectician. 11 is distinctions and his objections in philosophy have made him famous and he is a man to whom wc point with pride as a model of scholarship and a gentleman. Before that most momentous of occurrences in the life of a student, an examination, a spectator would always find a group of men standing about drinking in eagerly the words of a lad with a bright face, and making mental notes to he used later on. 'Flicre is one thing that “Tom” has in common with the renowned Galloway, and that is the courage of his convictions. Fair minded to an eminent degree, Tom would fight to the last ditch wherever a question of justice was involved, and this propensity of his has received the distinct approbation of his fellow-classmates. In the Debating Society he reigns supreme, and trembling underclassmen fearfully await his pronouncements, for is not “Tom” the First Censor? The frequent commendation he has received in the exchanges only demonstrate his grasp and ability to handle astutely abstract subjects in the “•Monthly.” While we cannot comment with authority upon his facility in “saving Chinese babies." we feel confident that in the parlors of .Yew Rochelle after eight o’clock in the evening “Tom” can always "hold his own.” All hail to 'Thomas Hennessy, regular fellow! § THOMAS A. HENRY, A.B. "the bad max” Regis High School Harvester Club; Debating Society (4); Class Secretary (4) Prom Reception Conn. (3) « i D RED" Henry made his debut in Fordham by entering the Freshman || class prepared fur infant collegians in 1918. Ye who attended that memorable class must well remember him as we first saw him untamed and unshorn (he is still the latter). One morning as we sat quietly in class, the door opened and there appeared before us a tall, slim, boyish-looking fellow with a red thatched roof and a light emanating from his eyes bespeaking a certain innate wildness mixed with a zeal and enthusiasm for erudition. It was Thomas A. Henry, destined to become Ford-ham's terror—and late as usual. After executing three about faces and kicking over the waste basket, he took his seat; and the serenity of the class disturbed by his advent began anew. The professor put a question to us and immediately there was a commotion in the rear. Looking around we beheld the “Bad Man" who had risen; his ambrosial locks were dishevelled; lie was snapping bis fingers with a vehemence never equalled on San Juan Hill; his wild desire to show the knowledge acquired at Regis had overcome him and he was oblivious to everyone except the half-stunned professor. When he first came to Fordham he was wild, simply wild in moments like this; but we have tamed him. and we offer to the world after four years of training a man who is safe and sound, a man from whom the process of taming has taken nothing, for he is still the same old brilliant, amiable "Bad Man.Fordham Prep College Orchestra (1) : Chairman, Junior Prom (3) ; Class Trea urer (3): Track Manager (4); Dance Committee (4): Class Football (4): Asst.

As you have surmised, we refer to cur own Harold, and the list of honors beneath his name tells hut half the story of the heights to which that youth arose. O tempora. O mores! He is now a suave man of the world. He toddles, he sips tea. he enchants the fair sex with his silvery tongue, he drives a car and can “shift” with his foot— in a word, he is “collegiate.” Although slight of stature, the "little man” is more than recompensed with an endless supply of pep and good humor which has made him one of the most popular men in the class. The outstanding honor in his quest for a B.S. was Hal's selection as Chairman of the Junior Prom Committee: and its signal success fully attested to his executive ability. When Harold passes through the old gate for the last time on Commencement Da . it is not unlikely that he will pause and hearken hack to a day long ago when lie entered the same portals, “imbued with the ambition to do big things” He may well stride forth with satisfaction into the new world he is entering where, we arc confident, he will gain new friends and successes with the same energy that has characterized him during the four years we have known him at Fordham.THOMAS J. HOWLEY, BS. “tmf. coal baron” St. Thomas College Vice-President A. A. (4); Acolyte in Sodality (4) §2 IX September. 1919. Thomas J. Howley, the ‘‘million-a-minute’’ boy from Scranton, arrived in Saint John’s Hall. He dropped his valise, brushed from Ins hat the coal dust gathered from the mines of his home town, asked somebody for a cigarette and thus began his career at Fordham. And what a career it has been! One of geniality, good nature and piety. Yes. piety. Pucker not your face with a smile for his office of acolyte in the sodality is his greatest boast. There are many ways of performing deeds of greatness for one's Alma Mater. Some men are heroic and courageous on the held of sport; some men are great executives; some are orators; some arc actors; but ‘ Tom' chose a method which eclipsed them all. He sowed the seeds of friendship among his fellow classmates and supplied the sunshine which enabled them to grow. Moreover, he offered his room to his friends in order that they might enjoy that part of college life which lives longest in our memories and produces the strongest kind of union—congenial society. When later we are enjoying the life-long friendships which began in college, many of us will have to thank the good nature and hospitality of ‘‘Tom’’ Howley. Tom is a prince and a gentleman, and the best wish that we can direct for Fordham is that in the future many such as lie will join her ranks and promote her interests in the same unselfish manner which has always characterized “ fom.”WILLIAM HURLEY.

I 1 where he distinguished himself and brought fame to Norwood by carrying away the honors in the standing broad grin during the winter carnival of 1917. For the greater part of the next two years he was numbered among ‘’the laddies who fought and won.'' to quote Harry Lauder, over in Flanders Fields. His two years in France served him in good stead, for ever since his advent to Fordham “the Squire" has been busy defending both the good name of Norwood and his own person from the verbal and physical onslaughts of Galloway, who never overlooks an opportunity to belittle Massachusetts in general and Norwood in particular—to the utter dismay of "Bill." who is a loyal son of the Bay State. Evidently “Rill" believes in a specific interpretation of that old adage. “The proper study of mankind is man." for to all intents and purposes he is immune from the wiles of the so-called weaker sex—although we harbor the suspicion that a certain stone wall on the outskirts of Norwood might unfold an interesting tale anent strange summer after-ninc-o’clock happenings. "The Squire” is an able disciple of St. Thomas, and following class any afternoon he may he found in his room in St. John’s Hall, the center of a howling mob of embryo philosophers, who seem to delight in seeking him out as the target for their pet theories; and the manner in which he disposes of them is a happy augury for his success in the more serious battle of life. 2MICHAEL C.

And he's not onl solved the first problem to everyone’s satisfaction, but traveled a little faster than most of us toward the accidentals. ••Rav" has the rare and happy faculty of thinking while the other fellow is shouting.

As Ravs deeds have always spoken for him let this book be eloquent in our silence. Bur what of the dainty things of life? Inevitable thought! In Ray's casual feats on the polished plane of Terpsichore, and. in his choice of “the rare and radiant maiden’ for the event, the observer will appreciate how far brains can go beyond the class-room. These things, however, Raymond properly subordinates to the higher demands of a rational existence. I li norm is the Golden Mean.

TERRY" came to us two years ago, aspiring to be a lawyer; awl although his I aspirations have been somewhat dimmed bv the bright lights of Broadway J and Webster Avenue, he still hopes some day to startle the natives of Mountain Lakes with his legal abilities. Big men thrive in small towns. The only source from which we could gather any information of this place was the Automobile Blue Book of 1910; since then Mountain Lakes, evidently, lias ceased to be. Our hero gained quite a name for himself last year in the college play, contributing largely to the success of L’Aiglon; but bis initial appearance also proved to be his last, dramatic activities interfering with Ids most serious vice, ‘‘nine-ball." indulged in at St. John’s “Billiard Academy.’’ Incidentally, this form of dissipation resulted in "Ferrv" acquiring that verv appropriate cognomen— ‘Xine-Ball." Speculation is rife as to his whereabouts on week-ends, and investigation lias resulted in the discovery of several dues, ranging from dance programs 10 cute little vanity cases, although he protests his innocence of any form of collusion with the fair sex. What have you to say for yourself. “Jerry"? "Jerry's” departure will he sincerely regretted by all. and his start in life will be given a decided impetus by the good wishes of the many friends he has made while at Kordham. That cheerful smile of his is bound to make new friends for him and melt away all difficulties. PAUL A. KENNEDY, A.B. "little c.us" St. Peter’s Prep. Jersey City, N. J. Freshmen Smoker Committee (1) ; "Prom" Committee (Publicity) (3); Class Baseball (2. 3); Asst. Mgr. Hockey (3); Manager Hockey (4) PAUL Augustin Kennedy, or “Little Gus” as lie is fondly known by his more intimate friends, comes from Hoboken and has to begin his daily journey to the Bronx so early, that, when possible, he completes his night’s rest on the way. We must admit that he has been caught in the act only once or twice; but that, probably, is because he is generally “slept out” before the train reaches the “coming-on” points of his friends. This, however, is not meant to imply any slothfulness in the nature of the youthful Jerseyite. On the contrary, he tackles his studies like a Trojan, never letting his social duties (and they are many) interfere. “K" is fairly well up in the alphabet; but marks do not occur in alphabetical order, and, when any such are read, the name of Kennedy is usually heard sooner than it is in the roll-call Paul was elected Assistant Hockey Manager in 1921—through his own popularity and the efforts of “Ted” Galloway; but, by the discontinuance of the sport in the following year, he found himself in the unique position of Manager without a team. But, just as the standard “wise cracks” levelled against his humble hometown succeed only in bringing that rare smile to his face, the little incident just mentioned did not bother “Gus” at all. Ever quiet and likeable, he will always be remembered by the men of 12—a favorite with the “Profs” because of his assiduity in study, a favorite of his classmates because—well, because he is a fine little fellow in every way.

It you haven’t, you have missed a large portion of your classical education. It is some head! —a face of patrician mould with features cut to suit the most exacting artist: a sweeping, broad, high forehead and a pair of tortoise-shell goggles shielding two calculating eyes; on the top is a heavy mass of silky, well-trimmed hair; the whole has outlines of that of a student and deep thinker. It is that head, we arc convinced, which is the reason why the “Doctor” is catalogued variously as thespian. debater, organizer, student, executive and all-around good fellow. Arthur Edward's one failing is “Tammanyitis.” He adores politics. For a time he did not have the success of Charles E. He was markedly Bryan-esque. However, he eventually strayed from the grape juice bibber's path and was elected Secretary-General of the A. A. When it comes to (guess?), he does not believe “distance lends enchantment to the view ’ He seeks the ballroom's waxen floor. He dances superbly. He dotes on his partner. On such occasions his smile is a sight to behold. Friend "Art" is a Harvester; he is learning to eat cake, and takes a fatherly interest in the fair students of our sister colleges. Incidentally, he saves drowning Chinese babies from mud baths in the Hoang Ho. We would wish Arthur success—but what is the use? We know he is already on the high road to sparkling achievements.

But. while hi« learnings are strictly toward the Dramatic. Harry can play baseball and claims he can play tennis. The ambition and zeal, however, exhibited by him in other lines points as il by “proxy” to his skill in these particular sports. This past year, however, he gave up the stage and the field of literature for reasons which his fine mark' in studies will explain. I le simply wanted more time; but when, after graduation, he has on his hands “all the time in the world.” we warn John Drew.

LINDQUIST, AM. “char lie” Cathedral College (1. 2) Fordham University (3, 4) THE unknown is always a source of mystery to men. It gains their interest; it incites their curiosity. Our newcomer, being to us a stranger, was a puzzle; a soldier in action; a quiet, unobtrusive student in appearance. And since, according to student ethics, a fellow i “dumb” until he shows otherwise, we waited patiently, speculating and wondering. ()thers raised contentious voices when their minds were philosophically stubborn (or stubbornly philosophic), but “Charlie” listened, and wrote, wrote, then looked up and wrote again. Fortunately some unfortunates flunked, and the urge for self-preservation led them a-not e-seeking. I low about the newcomer? Yes, those neatly typewritten sheets were real notes. Don Lindquist had written all. W hen the fiery Three-Star was crossing Distinction s lines, the note were indeed polemic. Now. ye of philosophic bent know that notes without the subjective element of assimilation are “nothing worth.” Perhaps our war-veteran was a good mechanic, with senses trained to perfection? I Jut no. he was more, lie had the real gray matter, it per cent in astronomy and honors in psychology are marks of intelligence. ( Hir friend is primarily scientific, lie dabbles in radio for amusement, and intensively follows up physics as a necessary entertainment. Since the day has only twenty-four hours Charlie finds but little time for other collegiate activities. The College is the training place of men. the moulder of character.

AROl’Xl) election time, if you see a certain robust, innocent-looking individual canvassing for the “thoroughly Kordham Student.” that's John A. Though 'wc don’t dispute John’s just claims to being strictly Fordhatnized. and at the same time a student, we think our Rosehill veteran takes an unfortunate “faux pas” in making Time the criterion of spirit, for John gives as adequate cause of the effect twelve years of Kordham life. I'erhaps John’s happy parents had a premonition of our hero’s love for the college when they named him after its patron Saint. Serious in demeanor, he is but setting an example of Senior dignity for his youthful proteges whose eager minds hungrily digest the teaching of their French "I’rof." Thoughtful and practical is this student from I ted ford I’ark. The glamour of magnitude and the ephemeral mask of mere phenomena are the jinx of the excitable, but quickly unfold to reality before the careful investigation of our deliberative friend. John's forte is History. Whenever an historical allusion comes up in our reading. John is the encyclopaedia. Our “Fordhamite” supports all college activities in his quiet unostentatious manner. Though non-conversant on his life-plans. Monsieur Marique. neighbor to an academy of "sweet things.“ is by no means a hermit. Just watch our hero deftly skim the glassy floor at our dances. We wish John success and we feel that his obliging spirit plus his many capabilities will reap a rich harvest of success.JOHN G.

Gargan would hardly concede that John had displayed form, but he would have to admit that the Soph, went down. The "Prof.," adjusting his spectacles, intones. "Mr. Markey, precisely what are we trying to prove?" We all sit pat and pray. "Get him. John." John "gets" him and saves the unprepared. The answer may not be strictly according to St. Thomas, but the solution is there. "Gabe" was never picked for an All-American team, and someone may nose him out tor the Jouin Ethics Medal, but in him we find that the much-sought-for combination of brain and sinew is best exemplified. To this golden mean, we add a likeable personality, a true sense of humor and the ability to listen well. The life to come after graduation should not be severe on John, for he has such a clear and happy understanding of the relation between duties and pleasure, that he neither talks shop at a dance, nor thinks of "hops" or sleep in class. Though Homer nods. John is there till the bell. Here’s hoping.

Fordham possesses a worthy son, one ready at all times to toil tor her interests and to otfer his best to her activities. He has manifested to us a threefold ability which composes a delightful character. He has charmed us with his poetry, lie has pleased us with his humor and by his track exhibitions he has offered us a feast lor the eye to gloat over. In the parlance of the day, he is ‘‘quite a boy. ‘‘Jimmy" is quite indispensable. He is. if you will, a necessary being; for what a sore disappointment we would sutler it. as we scanned the pages of the ••Monthly," we found a glaring emptiness in place of his far-famed Antidote. “Ear benders." courtiers, wielders of the “mean line and tea goers—all are alike to him as he has made each an instrument for the amusement of his fellow students. “Jimmy" is an oasis of humor in a desert of intellectual travail and as such well deserves the name of “Prince." Humor, however, is not his only asset. Pie is a track man of no little ability. Oft have we seen him going through his paces before admiring eyes, and one day we remember Frank Frisch was heard to remark; “This running is a great game. I wish I’d gone in for it. A few years ago •Jimmy MeGarvey was a skinny kid and look at the muscular development of him now." Any one who rates the envy of such a worthy as the "Flash" has our respect.joiix a. McGuire, us.

Always numbered among those class intellectual aristocrats of the upper strata, “Mac's” accumulated academic energies and ambitions have not. nevertheless, been contained merely within the classroom walls. A chronic contributor to "The Fordham Monthly” (irregularity is a sign of true genius), he has written his name in large letters into the story of this periodical’s triumphs. During the football season our assistant manager’s jerseyed self could be seen, water-pail in hand, administering to the stricken gladiators. The sight of these latter must have given him an inspiration, for his last days at Fordham find him toting a professional looking bag which, "Mac” assures us. limbering up bis “line,” contains the choicest assortment of gilt-edged policies. 11 is saving instincts have carried him still farther, for we find him a representative member of the Harvester’s Club, and our inquiring reporter tells us that as a consequence he is frequently found quite north of St. John’s Place.

Indeed it has often been a cause for speculation that one so modest and retiring could daily thread the maze of commuters which that “esteemed" road pours into our city, and still pursue the Muses.

A member and secretary of the Mart uette Club of Manhattan, and a tennis player of such standing as to capture a championship at Rrooklyn Prep., as well as several other trophies taken in public competition, there can be no question that this is the most likely hypothesis to explain Frank's experience with the “modern feminine. ’ At least it is more in accord with his other attributes, and from a philosophic viewpoint that counts a lot. Sedate and self-possessed, of exceedingly placid and peaceful a disposition, slow to anger and its attendant violence, one who forces Opportunity’s hand, rather than awaits her bidding, it can be readily seen that he fully measures up to the modern business standards, and we confidently predict for him a career that will reflect glory and honor upon himself and bis loving Alma Mater.

So serious was it to him that he now regrets that the only life he had to offer for the cause will now not be called for. At those times when exams came fast and hard. Pat withstood their every assault and came back with that fighting smile which knows no defeat. Sufficient proof of his courage is found in his joining that little group who were about to add chemist r and biology to their regular course. The decision to study medicine made this necessary, but who ever heard of a Murphy giving up his purpose because of trouble? A doctor, to take a leading place in his profession, requires ability to work till lie falls, to retain what lie has learned by constant study, to place the ethics of his calling above all material gain.—to do all this, and besides, all that every gentleman of honor should observe. It is our hope and our belief, based on his past performances, that “Pat" will gain a leading place in the medical profession as Doctor Murphy. JOSEPH J. NASH, A.B. •i JOE New Haven High School. 2 yrs.; Xavier High School. 2 yrs. Assistant B. B. Manager (3); Baseball Manager (4) Ml ONE day in liis Junior Year. Joseph Nash, starting out with friends on a “barneying" expedition to sec the Fordham “nine” perform “away from home." conceived the idea of an easier and surer method of viewing such pastimes. So he set to work, by dint of much hard labor “cinched" his job as Assistant Baseball Manager and the end of the season found his diligence rewarded with a realized ambition the Managership of the 1922 baseball team. This shows what persistent hard work will do. It also gives you an insight into “Joe’s” character. “Joe” likes to pretend severity and sternness, and immunity to being ruffled by an unusual happening: nor does he relish showing undue mirth over an occurrence of a humorous nature. In Sophomore, it was a month before our genial professor succeeded in causing an expansive smile to spread over Toe’s countenance, and he publicly applauded himself on the feat. But, as we said, we opine that this is only pretense. “Joe" can appreciate a good joke as well as the next fellow and he is probably chuckling within, most of the time, behind his mask. Or. mayhap, tis the stamp of a boyhood sjient in Puritanical New England. “Joe" i - bright and (though there should be no opposition between the two) studies; and. combining these accomplishments with the qualities essayed by the "Managership Moral." we see no reason why. in later life, this lad should not gain anything he sees fit to go after. % MONG our friends from Cathedral is one smiling “Jim." Our newly wel-corned Senior is evidently joyful at the not far-distant sheepskin—a valuable ■ j elt when impressed with the validating seal of I'niversitas Fordhamensis. Like Jason of old, our Argonaut is working hard for the Golden Fleece. With his quiet efficiency, we feel sure that no psychological nor ethical Gorgon will stand in his path. In analyzing Jim’s character, and bearing in mind the fact that he hails from Cathedral, we can eliminate all mention of the “fair" sex and its cognate fin-alities. We venture to state, perhaps gratuitously, that Jim is impregnable to their wiles. Vet. if we remember rightly, Jim did attend the Senior dances, and did not come alone. We intend not to accuse. We present the facts; our readers theorize. Jim has had very little time to devote to athletics; so we must withhold decision on his capabilities in this line. Despite his brief time with us. he has managed to gain a warm place in our hearts. His cheerful countenance creates hope in the despairing breast; and to curious soul probers the adequacy of the cause is found in Jim himself—in his fraternal spirit of helpfulness, in his obliging disposition and optimistic outlook; in short, like the sunshine, Jim himself feels happy in creating surroundings of warmth for others' joys. We have seen only the sunshine in Jim. and have no reason to suppose that storms too find refuge in him. In life’s dark modes we prize the silvery cloud. Till ' "Commodore"- what an impressive name! One would think that the person t" whom it was ascribed was a high, mighty and dominating personage. These attributes may and probably do belong to " in," but we have designated him the "Commodore not because of these, hut because of his proficiency in piloting damosels through the intricacies of an afternoon at tea—"teaing" is one of his hobbies, and no man with a hobby i worthless. " innic" is far from worthless: indeed lie is of inestimable value, no activity, intellectual, social or athletic, ever being complete without his languid presence. Lest, perhaps, you have received a mistaken impression of the ‘ Commodore." be prepared t« correct it. " innie" is in every respect the ideal collegian. In a class well known for the magnitude of its undertakings and the greatness of its achievements, lie is ranked as one d it brightest light and most capable members. Of hi , success in life we are supremely confident: tor he is an intelligent, sportsmanlike gentleman and tor such a man there is no such word as fail. And we must add here sonic mention of his dignity—the dignity of one possessing the full realization of what it means to he a Senior. If you could but see him as he ascend the elm-lined path, advancing with stately tread, with well-poised head and lott countenance, you would stop, contemplate and murmur "Ah! so good, so beautiful."

EDWARD A. SINNOTT, BS. “eddie” Regis High School Dramatic Society (4) ; Treasurer Debating Society (4) ; Prom. Comm. (3) THE first two years of “Eddie's” life at Fordham arc practically unknown to us, as lie spent them toiling among the chemicals of the pre-medical laboratories. We do not wish to throw bouquets at ourselves, hut we must say that he evidenced great wisdom and foresight when Ik decided to forego the pleasures of medicine and join our ranks; and he also showed by that that he was neither , of those terrible scourges, a fool or a genius. Before his arrival he realized our yw worth; but since his arrival we appreciate his. and feel greatly flattered that a man V' of his calibre should have deemed us worthy of his presence (and we feel sure that a certain person up Vermont way must feel the same). v You would never learn “Ed's” capabilities from his own words, for he is far too modest to speak about himself. But things happen at times to bring to light the traits of those who arc unwilling to sing their own praises. In the case of "Eddie.” these things have happened and have disclosed his abilities in study, baseball and the manly art. “Eddie” is a man who will go far in the world, for his engaging smile, his pleasing personality and his tempered intelligence will win a place for him among the elect. We know that in a few years he will prove a verification of the dictum, that in the long run it is the humble who rise to the greatest heights.

Brooklyn College (2, 3) Fordham (1.4) Class Baselwll (1 ) Debating Society (I) Track (4) BY the tenets of sorcery, Dame Fortune has ever smiled sweetly on the tall, dark, handsome stranger, and "Vie” is not the exception which proves the rule. Tis such men who always possess potent charms—which probably accounts for "Vic's" distinguishing himself on the occasion of several fierce tea battles at the Plaza. "Chink booze, cake and femmes, there were aplenty,” and it has often been mumbled in sundry quarters that Bob was in no sense cheated. Tall, dark and handsome himself, it is small wonder that the occult but powerful instincts of man’s equal proved more efficacious than any masculine chicanery. But man has other relations besides his social ones, and Bob has not neglected these. A member, and. in frequent cases, an officer of all the student religious societies, he has earnestly endeavored to supplement Father Fasy’s teachings with a practical application of the principles for rounding out his moral nature. The various literary circles have afforded him opportunity for further intellectual advancement. Sports of every kind, tennis, handball, baseball and even football, have contributed their share to develop him physically, and a sign of his competitive worth is that he was twice called upon to employ his exceptional track ability in the intercollegiate relays at Philadelphia. Clever and sagacious, straightforward and prudent, gifted by nature with the requisite social and intellectual characteristics, there can be no question but that his career through the sea of Journalism will be marked by a shimmering wake of glory stretching from the doors of Fordham even to the Great Beyond. V IT is a relief to the eyes to come in from the glare of the noon-day sun and sit in the cool shade of a mossy rock. As it is in nature so it is in the class-room. So, when in the midst of our academic confusion we turned to contemplate "Jake.” as he is familiarly known to his fellow-classmates, we experienced the same relief afforded by the rocky shade, in an analogous sense. Do not mistake our meaning. We do not mean to say that "Jake” Weber possessed any of the imperfections of the rock, such as density—far from it. Albrecht was always a student and his success in all important examinations proves the veracity of our contention. We merely wish to bring out his calm, which had the soothing effect of coolness to one heated and weary with the activity of pursuing the elusive degree. Even in that most hectic of happening;?—a class-meeting, Jake never rose to interpose his opinion upon the matter under discussion. Doubtless he turned many things in his mind; but his conclusions and solutions of the problems of life he has never confided, even to the man who sits at his left—Cozy Collins. His is a retiring nature. He is agreeable and pleasant to converse with. He has never been censured for an uncharitable word. He bears the esteem of his fellows with modesty, and forbearance is the principal trait of his character. We are confident that when "Jake” goes forth into the world after June Fifteenth, the same calm. cool, collected and soothing nature which has been such a pleasure to us will win him a high place. Good luck. "Jake”! ARTHUR A. WEGI.EIX, A.B. “WEGS,” “ARTIE” Brooklyn Prep.

The Debating Society can truly claim one more success in welding him into an orator. Years ago at Brooklyn, it never seemed that the short lad in knickerhockers. who spoke in a voice squeaking at most inopi ortune moments, would one day help defend Fordhani against Boston College. But “Wegs” is by no means the unfortunate man pictured in the parable of the master and the stewards. As a member of the Harvester Club, he has revealed talents in other directions, and. through his sagacious and diligent efforts as chair man of the committee, has b.cn largely responsible for the success of several dances and other socials sponsored by that organization. Applying his persistence and doggedness to track athletics, he so perfected himself as to be twice chosen to com|K te at I’hiladelphia on intercollegiate relay teams. In addition to being himself a student in the daytime, lie devotes his afternoons and evenings learning how to instill knowledge and scholarship into others; and it is a safe wager that if he selects this endeavor for his life work and concentrates oil it those forces of persistent, inflexible and indomitable tenacity that are rooted in his very soul, lie will ultimately attain great prominence in our public schools and perhaps start on its wav the reform of our school system which is bound in time to come.R.

It is stated by several of “Ray's” most intimate childhood friends that lie learned how to run before he started to walk. Re that as it may, we who have not known him so long, will vouch for the fact that he has been running ever since, and did not stop even when he ran away with a Metropolitan Championship last winter. Should “Ray” so desire, he could realize a small fortune for the nianv trophies of all sizes and descriptions from gold watches to silver loving cups, which occupy every available space in the hearty home. Nor does he confine his prize-winning proclivities to the cinder path; one of his proudest exhibits is a medal awarded him for carrying away the highest honors in his Freshman class Such a combination of athletic and intellectual ability is indeed a rare find in American college life of the present day. Some might venture the opinion that these manifold honors would have a harmful effect on the average young man of today; not so with “Ray,” however; for he is of a most unassuming nature, and his conquests rest lightly on his capable shoulders.

To epitomize what we have observed in all that time, we can say that lie is a perfect exemplar of the polished collegian, truly a gentleman and a scholar. And "de facto" he merits all of these titles, for if “Bob" is not a gentleman then such an entity does not exist ; if he is not the polished collegian then our concept of the term is all wrong. Nor as a scholar is he any sluggard. His high academic standing, Ins success as a "quondam" debater, his contributions (poetic and otherwise) to "The Monthly" and “Maroon," all hear witness to this fact. And now, if we may he allowed the liberty, it is our personal belief that "Boh" has always aimed at being a little different from every one else. We must admit that he lias succeeded admirably, for distinctiveness is certainly "Bob’s" forte. Wc find it exemplified in everything connected with him; in his manner, his tastes, his dancing, his clothes and even in his vernacular—for lie jxissesses a delightful faculty for coining unique and pretty phrases that are far elevated above the more stereotyped forms of expression. “Bob" was also among the discriminating few who brought even their Prom, girls from other parts.

THOM AS V. 11E N KSS'i IT seems peculiar—and fitting—that the Senior Class should leave Fordham just as it came here—fighting. The Class of '22 came t Fordham and donned not the academic robes of wisdom, nor the placidly intellectual mien of poetically aspiring Freshmen; but it courageously wrapped itself in the just-as-loose-fitting regalia of the gentlemen of the S. A. T. C. and assumed the grim, bold look of student-soldier bad men. It goes after having spent a most tempestuous last year with many a fatality—even during the recess periods. Rut it goes fighting and victorious. There is one thing quite unique about our entry into Fordham—we did not enter the biggest Freshman class in Fordham’s history. The misfortunes of war had decreed otherwise: for the men who were, later on in the school year, to form the Freshman class, were then divided into two groups. The members of the first of these happened to be under eighteen years of age and so were given over to the care of Mr. Terence L. Connolly. S.J., and lived for a time a heavenly existence—a course of half-days of wandering through Fordham’s sobered halls in quest of learning (and a classroom). The second group of the would-be matriculants over eighteen years of age were gathered, most of them into Company C of the valiant S. A. T. C.; a few others into Companies B and I). It was as members of this organization that many of us got our first glimpse of Fordham. It was here that many of us First had the pleasure of meeting one another often, alas! under unfavorable circumstances. Here, for instance, the irrepressible Galloway blared the announcement to die world that he had arrived and found himself, a few days later, a prisoner of Sergeant “Tom’’ Hennessy. Thus, we suspect, began the Galloway-Hennessy feud. ft was in those days that wc first saw the drummer-boy, Horton, toss a bed at the shoe-curving Galloway, while Corporal McGuire waxed wroth at McGarvev’s first wise crack. ( )utside. Sergeant “Jim’’ Kelly marched his warriors in the paths of Company B with “Tom’’ Hennessy and the later-famous “Joe” Roylan, and I) with “lid” Sinnott and “Ed” Pfeiffer. All the while Seamen McNamara and Howard Roylan wigwagged saltily away. 101But there came an end—as the poet said—the S. A. T. C. expired. December 13. 1918. it happened, and on January 6th of the new year the demobilized, umini-tormed soldiers returned and were gathered together into Section B under Mr. Edward A. Sullivan. S.J., with the other Section-A still under Mr. Connolly. And thus we began in January and were looking forward to finishing in June work we should have begun in September. But all was not humdrum seriousness. The afternoon Spanish hours were lightened by the good-natured bantering of the genial Prof, with his Spaniards, while the visits of our evidences Prof, to his afternoon class were sources of unfailing joy and instruction—and anticipation of the knowledge awaiting us in our Junior and Senior years. The newly arrived Section B was greeted one evening by their younger brethren at a smoker, and the occasion was a noteworthy one. “Penny’ and Weglein tried to shake their gloves off at each other, while Seaman McNamara warbled "Dear Old Pal of Mine.’ and the budding wise-crackers "did their stuff” as the movies reeled along. Ice cream and cake finished off the night—the Harvesters were as yet non-existent and so no tea was served. Section B. enjoyed that evening. hut Id it be recorded sorrowfully that the courtesy was never returned. Pudeat vos! The winter of the year was spent in academic work entirely. We watched the scholars crop out—"Charlie” McDonnell. "Tom” Hennessy, "Kay” hearty and "Mike” Isaacs and battle it out between themselves. "Ray" hearty took the medal in Section A. while “Charlie” McDonnell carried it off in Section B. Our class orator. “Ray" McCauley and his friend. "Amby” Murphy, since departed from among us to St. Joseph’s Seminary, captured the prize in the prize debate. Put as there was no play this year, our thespians had to put off the day of their glory’s dawning for another year. Put Spring was at hand and the year began to come to a rapid close. Bats and balls were gotten out and the class “ham-and-eggers" spent many an afternoon “haltin’ ’em out” and "scooping ’em tip.” With the Varsity we found "Timmy” Mac beginning his brilliant career as a collge pitcher by breezing right through our Cathedral friends, and he continued on through that year winning games for that great combination. And thus came the end of our first year. It had been an unusual year—the year to which we had all been looking forward as the first of our careers as college men—only to find the beginning delayed. Put we had enjoyed our days as S. A. T. C. men and the strenuous ones following them in their classroom. So we laid it thankfully t rest. 102M AROON Sophomore President..........................EDWARD T. GALLOWAY Vice-President....................TIMOTHY A.

But four years, even when full of daily recitations and translations ind preparation for exams, go fast.—especially when you have gone through two of them. There was one gratifying aspect of the beginning of our Sophomore year. The two erstwhile Freshman sections had been combined into a single Sophomore class under the guidance of Rev. John 11, barley. S I. It was a relief to be let down from the high tension at which most of us had been carried along during the previous year, and so the manner of our class conduct was a surprise and a pleasure to all. We settled down immediately to the business of unravelling the story of the three crossroads and such matters as picking the world's famous speeches to pieces, and putting the pieces on paper. Horace. Juvenal. Demosthenes. W ebster. Burke—all made their irksome presence amply known—especially on exam days. It was in this class that we later-day philosophers first had the experience of mounting the rostrum for our recitations—a process which unseated many a man from his tried and true steed. While the A.B.’s were up there struggling over a language fit only for fruit-stand owners, the B.S. s were over in the lab. preparing and taking apart various concoctions and making constructive equations out of them. Both, meanwhile, were calling upon their favorite deities and wishing for the chance to switch over to the other. It was their association twice a week with the Juniors which first gave 22 its taste for and the beginnings of the higher development of that most delightful of all classroom entertainments—wise-cracking. The Juniors, we thought, were pretty good; so we borrowed their stuff and. we think, bettered it. But we did profit by our contact with the upper classmen. In the midst of a stirring symposium, our pitching ace would crash an electric lamp down the back of our dimpled outfielder on the other side of the room. But the class dog would take care of the glass-splinters—lick 'em up together with the pie he found on the floor. It was here also that we first learned all about what a From, is and the difficulties attached to running one. After listening to “Dutch” Paunch's plea to save the committee from an undesired trip to Cuba. “Jimmy” McOarvey assured the boys that if we did not buy some tickets the committee would have about as much chance as a celluloid dog chasing an asbestos cat through Hades. The tickets immediately sold out. One of our most enjoyable classes was mechanics. It was an intellectual and scientific delight to listen to the versatile Mr. Daniel H. Sullivan. S .l . make clear the wondrous mysteries of the subject. This course was one of the most profitable as well as pleasurable of our entire four years. 103104Our first venture out upon the shiny floor was s:agcd January lo. l'Cl). at the Commodore in the form of an informal reception. It was a delight to watch the band-master juggle his drum-sticks as he sent the hoys skidding around, and to. gape in amaze at the exhibitionists as they cavorted over i. e floor. Among the distractions over the winter months was the annual college play— "Seven Keys to Baldpate"—and in the brilliant cast that walked the boards for that splendid entertainment was Marry Lawrence, our thespian. whose interpretation of the humble role of Lou Max called forth a favorable citation by the special tritie for the "Monthly." "Ray” McCauley and Arthur Lamb, one of the Brooklyn newcomers contributed to the class’ trophy case by romping off with the decision in the prize debate. Spring found the elemental urge coursing through the veins of the Sophs and they spent their afternoons playing baseball—many a time and oft to the detriment of their progress in their Greek. But a good combination was evolved and became so confident in its ability as to challenge the high and mighty Seniors to combat. The result was a tilt with the powers that be. an afternoon s play, a lot of exercise for tlie Sophs, and the score—the records seem to be mislaid. Out in the Varsity squad we bad "Tim Mac.” big then, getting bigger all the time, and he served up a splendid assortment of fast ones, slow ones, hooks and curves all year for a fine record. Behind him "Bill” McLoughlin guarded first base and indicated the good judgment of Devlin in selecting him as lead-olf man. It was about this time that the beginning of that popular springtime sport— "barneying”—were made. The call of the open was too much for the nature-lovers and slaves to the wanderlust, they forsook their Alma Mater for short invasions of other peoples'. It was their loyalty to the baseball team which carried thrm away and was the cause of an enthusiastic crowd of "rooters ’ at the Yale game in .Yew Haven. Amid low-whispered ‘plaints that the year was ending and that forevermore the jockeys among us would he spared their daily gallop, our Sophomore year passed on—all too fast it seemed. "Tom” Henncssy had the medal pinned on him as having displayed the best brand of Greek and Latin translations, physical and chemical results and speech analyses. Thus he gained his first star and thus came an end to our Sophomore year. Sophomore had not been to us what the name implies. The academic cares of the previous year had been such that 21 Sophs had had no time to inflict rules upon us. So we carried into Sophomore no heritage »! vengeance or over-lordrv over the new arrivals. Consequently we had very few “meetings” with die "Freshies." All the energy, however'we bad turned into the classroom—as our Professors for that year will testify. 105NEW ENGLAND PROM HERE AND THERE ior CATHEDRAEPresident............................................WILLIAM J. HURLEY l ice-Presidem...................TIMOTHY A. McNAMARA Secretary........................RAYMOND P. WIIEARTY Treasurer........................HAROLD H. HORTON Ol'R entrance into Junior year was not without a strange feeling. The feeling may have been one of surprise or of joy, or of both, or of something else. But it was there. It was the feeling one experiences when he discovers he lias become a real college man. Freshman and Sophomore had been college surely . enough. But then with its troublesome Latin, its unyielding (ireek. its mysterious sciences, its themes and its compositions—well, it had been altogether too much like advanced high school. W e had to work, in other word", an 1 thereby had been destroyed the | icture we had painted ourselves of college. But now here we were Juniors—we had climbed—now the descent. It was a descent, too. as many a man will testify. In another sense it was a most positive ascent into airy intangibilities, for we were now to become philosophers, to converse with, agree and disagree with the greatest minds of the ages- which we did with most of them at recitation time. Junior year. too. is the social year of college and college life; and so we find many a lad making his ballroom debut—and some of the veterans their triumph— during this year. The Prom which we gave in Junior was directed to its splendid success by our drumming “Little Man." Mr. Harold II. llorton. of Yonkers, and the memory of the .wonderful evening which he and his committee assistants. "Jim" Kelly and ".Nick" Del Re, gave us. is the one great social treasure we carry away with us. One of the first sights to greet our curious eyes upon our arrival was a group of valiant gladiators, straining with creaking moleskins against a bucking machine— for football had returned to Fordham after a lapse caused by that most blamed thing—the war. Among the mechanics wc found the following logicians—Fallon, Gately. Healy. Hill, Moran and Vergara, and their daily presence among us in class was an added source of interest to our new football team. Among the most enjoyable hours we spent during our four years were the ones occupying our course with Father Mahony. our Professor of logic and metaphysics. Father Mahony was a lovable teacher—a man of long experience and knowledge of his craft, a keen student of human nature, of the quaintest sense of humor and easy familiarity with his students, and a most effective teacher. Father Mahony. of all men. despised the formality of notes tor late-comers as a substitute for their presence, and often a man found himself suddenly out of the room—with his note. But necessity calls forth new faculties. 'The soft-shoe artist therefore grew into being and it was a pleasure sometimes to watch these gentry, after a peep through a crack in the door, seat themselves quietly and envisage themselves learnedly. We never ceased to admire the skill of such adepts as Cornelius Collins, now departed. It was in Junior year, too, that our sum of geometrical knowledge was further 107added i" by an intimate and protracted inquiry into the nature of circles, and it will be bard to forget the gruelling hour—sometimes two of hurling and dodging objections. Another class which made many a man despair as he looked forward to the future was the class in evidences as conducted by bather ( oghe. The amazingly alert and keenly searching intellect of the man. the extent of his resources was an intellectual treat—but there was a shudder and a shiver present too. I hit the class was frequently lightened by the disputatious ventriloquist. “15ill ' McCarthy, as he oratoricallv ex|x uuded his theories—to the detriment of the doctrine. The class in ingenuity—physics “lab.'’ showed a goodly number of the “doctors' getting results startling!} similar to the best which Mr. Carhart and the Smithsonian Institute could offer. History was pursued with the same regularity and profitable return as hitherto. It was often a jo to spend an afternoon there to the tunc of “A-a-a-ll. r-r-ight!” from the back-row quartet. Spring was along again in a luirry and once more the boys oiled up their gloves and went out to the combat. On the Varsity squad "Timmic” Mac, of “behind-lhe-house” fame—(that bouse was the only tiling our pitcher ever passed) —was serving up a fine variety of curves. “Lou” Mealy was there, too, doing the “Tanglefoot” act. On the track "Kay” Whearty was pushing out mile after mile, and his persistency was at last rewarded—Junior Metropolitan “champ” at two miles—and Xew York. As a result of this trip they immediately set up a claim for the championship of bordham in this line «»t" spring past time. The famous trip of Crabtree. Cowan, Hayes. Ilowlcy. Hurley. Marchiony and Wright had at last been bettered, and those knights of the road, had spent a delightful session on the road, for “making” Boston. Once the baseball season was along, the “hums” craved for the broad highway, and they were off traveling to all sorts of places after the team. Nash, Deely and Kane, the inseparables, followed the boys to Boston and thus for a week traveled a triangle through Connecticut. Rhode Island. Massachusetts, ermont and Xew York. Conspicuous among the results accomplished: this never was the successful engineering of our I’rom by the Committee mentioned above, and even more so the good results following it long-felt want of cooperation and universal clas-» interest in all class activities had at last been filled and the filling had brought with it a closer association of member with member and the real beginnings of the excellent class spirit which is ours as we leave b'ordham today. So all hail to Junior! Tims, with the baseball season, came the end of the year and the medal was awarded to Michael C. R. Isaacs. I OSMAR OON Senior President GEORGE A. CALLAHAN Vice-President..................MICHAEL C. K. ISAACS Secretary......................... THOMAS A. HENRY Treasurer...................... JAMES V. CONNELLY THE most strenuous, tile most momentous war by far. aiul 'lie most seriously significant of the four we have passed at Fordham, is the one we are just finishing, our Senior year. 'I'he Senior Class has been studying this year— perhaps from a realization of the approaching turn in their life’s path, or again— l ur then classroom matters tor the classroom. The vacation had hardly had time to begin its disappearance before we were in the midst of such impressively sounding and learned things as brute matter, immanent action, oughtness and objective order, llut psychology and ethics had a few other things about them, much less mysterious, but infinitely more tangible, and it was these things which immediately concerned its. The first occurrence to startle the Seniors out of their newly assumed dignity was the announcement that there would be three major examinations for each of the major subjects, followed, in case of failure, by but one condition. Moreover, there would be orals for all at the end of the year. . corresponding tightening of the ropes of discipline resulted in an unprecedented expenditure of white paper and the purchase of a new time-stamping machine by the 1 'refect of Discipline’s office. Shortly after, there was an unusually large presence at the ringing of the nine o’clock bell. ( ur recovery from these unexpected innovations was helped along by the fact that the football season was in full swing, and the enthusiasts were swayed by the ever brilliant ’’Joe” Boylan—megaphoning this time. Our smiling “Lou" Healv was out there as usual with the boys and consequently the team was a good one, and enjoyed fair success for the season. The ever memorable bus-trip to Washington, that had ended many things— file trip and the bus. and bus-trips among them—was followed shortly by the end of the regular season. Here the classes took up. and an inter-class football league was soon in progress. Our own team, under the tutelage of “Lou" Mealy, gave valiant battle in it , two engagements, and. remembering the obesity and flabbiness which the sedentary life of staid Seniors succeeds in bringing on. the team did nobly. Spurred on by their fast and able Captain O'Shea, such huge linemen as McGuire and Cinelli opened up yawning gaps for the backficld men—but. somehow, the latter could not get going (yawning themselves), and so went down in glorious defeat before the more supple youngsters of tender years—the Juniors and Sophs. It was good fun for all but O’Shea—for even yet a kidney of his floats about Fordham Field. And then the winter. A most pleasurable hour was our psychology period, for we learned many things—among them that llenncssy ran ask questions. We had one most instructive lecture on the nature of the roulette— (this by 109Bronx Home News Phot i MARSHAL FOCH VISITS FORDHAMchance). Howard Bovlan was responsible and he shook all over as he found a sympathetic chord to strike in his answer. Then we heard about apes, and afferent and efferent nerves, and the ever memorable Peter Johannscn. "Sui juris.” objective order, law of nature, perfection of nature, cosmological arguments alone and together with the teleological argument all became in time the philosophic playthings, and the index words to the solution of difficulties ami the consternation of anti-collcgc scoffers. This was learning. Wcll-a-day it was! Many a weary night was spent turning these inside out and examining the lining and turning them hack again. Sometimes the process became irksome. At such time we would call class meetings. No one objected to these except the man who cleans the classrooms and the would-be speakers. But we did get our caps and gowns for our class picture. We proceeded to usher in the social year on the evening of November 22, when the Pennsylvania Hotel received the flat-footing scandallers of Senior and a few other classes. The process was considered good enough to he repeated on February 25th. On Sunday. November 24th. Fordham was honored by a visit from Marshal Ferdinand Foch of France, and in a most inspiring and impressive ceremony, the Marshal was given the honorary degree of Doctor of Paws by the Reverend Rector. Following this. Marshal Foch pinned medals on members of the Sixty-Ninth Regiment, drawn up on the lawn in front of the Administration Building. The arduous tasks of the year and their serious outcome were lightened at times by visits to the first room to the left in St. John's I lull; and many a jibe and a jest has floated through the air of that room. The banterings of that most excellent raconteur and supreme wise-cracker, “Don” McGarvey, set his hearers into convulsions; and he often transferred his more brilliant witticisms to his weekly yellow journal for the general enjoyment of all who read. Thus with the steady passage of the days wc find ourselves drawing near to the day which we all anticipate and yet all dread to have upon us. It has been an enjoyable year—a fitting one to end our stay here at Fordham. Wc arc about finished with the grind now and for that reason we rejoice. But the end means the breaking up of our class—the annual catastrophe at every college—the separation of a crowd which has studied and played together, has progressed in knowledge and wisdom together, which has learner! to take each other as necessary complements in their journey toward success. It must he. though. We must part. But in the parting there is a world of sorrow. Success to everyone! Illto Ex-22 ■K: BAGAROZY. ROBERT C. BERGEN, JAMES J. COM.INS. CHARLES J. COLLINS.

McLOUGHLIN Historian.......................SALVATORE S. FREDA History of the Class of 1923 IN the Fall of 1919, the Class of 1923 besieged the historic walls of Fordham with an army of 120 students assembled from Prep, schools, far and wide, wherein each of us had, of course, been figures of transcendent importance. It was an interesting gathering composed of young and old, of men advanced to varying extents in wisdom and worldly knowledge. Many of us had seen service in France, and these men with a sobered and practical outlook on life, lent greatly to the establishment of a more serious outlook by the class. Due to the large enrollment. 115we were divided into three sections—A, B and C. under the instruction of Father Dates, S.J.. and Messrs. Connolly and Sullivan, S.J. Our first duty as a class was the election of class officers. After keen deliberation, during which many ballots were cast. Andrew McCarthy became President. Robert Mahoney. Vice President; Paul McLoughlin. Secretary, and Joseph Weed. Treasurer. At the same meeting a class Athletic Association was organized and a class constitution adopted. We were now organized into an orderly unit, and began in a systematic way to make our presence known at and by Fordham. In the first place, we silently and directly introduced our Freshman hats, and the innovation caused some amazement among the staid upper classmen, lie fore the resulting excitement was stilled and wasted, we formed a basketball team to play games preliminary to the Varsity home games and thus help to swell the attendance. M e were fortunate in possessing men of exceptionally high caliber, and so successful and fruitful was their training by Mr. McArcc, S.J., that the team succeeded in winning the yearling championship of Greater Xew York. As s x n as the basketball season came to an end, out thoughts turned to baseball. Without any loss of time, the call was made tor candidates, and the response was encouraging—some thirty men reporting for practice. Mr. Daly, S.J., took these men in hand and succeeded admirably in whipping them into a team capable and worthy of the honor of representing Fordham. The record that the team made is still a topic of sporting conversation on the campus, and will remain so for some time to come. The sporting element of the class now fell its hlood coursing swiftly and spiritedly as the open season progressed, and s nm a tennis team was formed. It did remarkably well, too. But some of its members have since burned up their enthusiasm and have taken desperately to golf. The zeal manifested in these branches became evident also in the regular class work and in the intellectual competitive field of debate. Our debaters waxed eloquent on many occasions during the year, gaining many laurels of victory. ! hese same men. aided b a few others of their fellows, were numbered among those in the cast chosen for the annual college play. Of course, the play was successful, and the cast proved to be well-chosen and well-balanced. All these activities were more or less directly connected with Fordham and look place mostly within its walls. But 23 ventured beyond Fordham’s confines. Dedicated to the proposition that “variety is the spice of life,” we resolved to dispense will all competitive occupations for the nonce, and engage in social activities for a change. Accordingly. “Joe” Weed, as chairman of the dance committee, arranged an exceedingly pleasant program of entertainment at the Hofei McAIpin. where we enjoyed ourselves as only Freshmen could. Shortly afterward the school year ended, and reluctantly we laid to rest a ''cry productive and active year, determined to improve upon it the next year, if such a thing were possible. This determination to improve manifested itself in many wavs directly after our return in the Fall of 1920. 1 laving once been assigned to our classes, of which bathers (); tes, Sfedler and Treacey. S.J.. were I'rofessors, we decided to hold class elections to assure an early '•tart in all activities. Mr. John Mulvey. who had shown 116brilliantly throughout the previous year, was elected President. Mahoney and McLoughlin retained their respective offices as Vice-President and Secretary, while John McManus succeeded “Joe" Weed as Treasurer. Our first move alter this accomplishment, was to convince all and sundry that we. as Sophs, had lost none of our Freshman spirit. Accordingly, it became our fixed intention to harness the Freshmen and drive them into line. With this end in view, a committee, chosen for the purpose, formulated and handed to the Freshmen a set of ten rules regulating their conduct on the campus, with the instructions that they be learned and respected to the letter—the alternative being dire punishment for failure to do so. I laving since dabbled in logic and become corres|xmdingly wise, we can now appreciate where we erred. We had reckoned without the Freshmen, and soon found them to he worthy heirs to our own spirit of fight. The Faculty, aware that the resultant of two uncontrolled and irresistible forces would at least be an indescribable crash, requested that further exchange of class compliments be abandoned, and an end was put to enforcing the rules. Having become impressed with our worth and desirability as opponents, the Freshmen flung ns a challenge to a series of football games, which we readily accepted. The outcome of the series was a victory for the Freshmen, while we gained glory in honorable defeat. It should here he mentioned that the Freshmen also bested '23 in basketball, but by the closest of margins. After all this strenuous physical activity, both classes combined in enjoying a smoker tendered the victorious Freshmen; and it proved a glorious success. Just as we were finding difficulty in discovering an outlet for our excess energies, the “Greater Fordham" appeal came to our rescue, and we lent ourselves to the cause unreservedly. John McManus, a member of the class, was made Chairman of the Students' Committee, and under his guidance the drive went "over the top." During all the aforementioned athletic activity, others of our class were working continuously and earnestly to uphold our standards in dramatics and debating The fruits of their labors were marked success and praise in the former field, and overwhelming victory in the latter. Having enjoyed the one informal reception that "Joe" Weed had given us, we asked him to arrange a second, and the occasion justified our faith in his ability in this line. This was our final activity for the year. The results of our second year's activities cannot be set down in terms of victory after victory, as has been our Freshman year; but our prestige had grown, so that the future looked brimful of opportunity and promise. In the Fall of 1921 we returned, feeling fit and determined to combat successfully any adversaries that challenged us in the field of athletics and academics. Although the class had been augmented in numbers by a small group gathered from various neighboring colleges, yet the three sections of the previous year were merged into two under the logical guidance of Fathers Mahoney and Cox, S.J. As had been our wont, we met to decide upon class officers directly after being assigned to classes. After the most spirited election yet witnessed by the class, William H. Finnegan was elevated to the Presidency, and Joseph W elling became Vice-President. Later John F. McManus and Paul A. McLoughlin were made 117 Treasurer and Secretary respectively. t the same meeting it was announced that Howard Woods had been chosen Editor-in-Chief of the “Monthly,” with Frank Leslie as Assistant Editor. Not satisfied with one literary feature in the college, the Juniors revived the “Ram” as a weekly news organ. Without the slightest financial aid from outside sources, the paper was put in circulation and continued as the official news organ throughout the year. “Charlie" Kenna, the “Pittsburgh Kid,” was the moving force and. as I business Manager, he carried out his set purpose admirably. John Devlin, the Editor-in-Chief, started his duties as supervisor of a four-page weekly and finished as Editor of an eight-page sheet. We now descend from the sublime to the ridiculous. An inter-class football league, be it known, was formed this year to inject just a little more spirit into the college than had been manifest of late. The class team scoring the most victories was to be awarded a trophy presented by the A. A. The schedule was never completed, hut in the games played the Juniors succeeded in holding the far-famed Freshmen to a 7-7 tie. and defeated the Seniors to the tune of 13-0. The next happening in the circle of collegiate events was the annual play. Of the leading parts, the Juniors had their full share, and so well did they and their fellow players conduct themselves, that serious thought was given to reproducing the play at a Broadway house. Our debaters, fired by a zeal akin to that which carried the play over, met and defeated the Holy Cross disputators on the subject of government ownership and operation of railroads. The victory was one of which to be proud, because of the difficulty we often experience against Holy Cross in this activity. Participation in all these activities necessitated a large expenditure of time. Meanwhile preparations were being made for the event of the Junior year— the annual Prom. We now feel assured that all this time was not spent in vain, for we have the respected opinion of regular Prom, attendants, that our effort came close to being the best and most orderly conducted that they had ever attended. To Mr. Thomas Heresy and his committee are due unstinted praise for the manner in which they went through with this undertaking. In the main, these have been our accomplishments. Satisfied that our record is one of which to be proud, we await the future smilingly. Our next year will be our last at Fordham. and from now on, our every endeavor will point toward continuing our good work, and toward making the name of '23 one honored by Fordham and its men. 118611 RO ON President.............................RAVMOM) F. 0 BRIEN Vice President......................RICH ARD B.

FINNICAN History of the Class of 1924 IN the dawning glory of the collegiate—pardon us. scholastic year 1920-1921, the class of 1924 was admitted to the sacred precincts of Fordhani University. Unheralded, unsung we came, unnoticed save for the surreptitious threats of certain "savage Sophomores." With dauntless hearts and quaking knees, we met the attack of the all-powerful Faculty; with the result that our hand was divided into three phalanxes. The first section was placed under the tutelage of Mr. J. Kearney, S.J.; the second was given to the care of Rev. Father Mattamoir. S.J., and in the third Mr. R. Gannon, S. J., ruled supreme. 121M A R O O N When the first regular school week had sunk into oblivion, we had elected our board of officers and an executive council. F. X. Downey was President; R. B. O’Brien. Vice-President ; W. R. Meagher was Secretary and R. F. O'Brien was Treasurer. The sectional executive Council was comprised of Crowley. Brooks, O’Brien. Chambers, McMahon and Minoguc. An imposing assemblage indeed, and capable of coping with the most clever stratagems of our brotherly mentors, the class of ’23! Yea, even to the insidious attack of the Green Cap. we proved our mettle. Though the season was late, our constitutional right to the fragrance of the wicked weed, depended upon a successful football team to engage in combat the eleven of ’23. Accordingly, a team was organized and coached under Mr. Kearney, S.J. Two victories, in two consecutive games proved forever that the morale of ’24 was perfect. The “right to smoke’’ was granted! Moreover, like the royal sportsmen they arc. ’23 regaled us with luscious doughnuts and suchlike festive delicacies at a smoker. In the realm of basketball, too. success was ours. Manager Noble’s brilliance in arranging an excellent schedule, was only equalled by Captain Hannigan's ability as a leader, in winning games. ()nly the sad fatalities of ‘‘Mid-Year's’’ interfered with the continued victories of a team to which Fordham could point with pride. But the hand of Fate recognizes no rank ; and so. like the Arabs, we said. “Kismet." and bid our schedule a sad farewell. Jn the spring, the siren-call of the Lorelei echoed alluringly in the corridors and classrooms. « King Baseball beckoned to his abject slaves of '24 and they answered right willingly.) Manager Raymond O’Brien had arranged a series of games for his baseball team that brooked no rival. Practise was started. A tentative team was formed and matched with Fordham "Prep.’’ Then, for the first time defeat came, like some evil bird of night, to settle on the banners of our class. And since, “When troubles come, they come not single spies—but in battalions." the bird returned. So twere best t draw the veil of silence, and on our score-cards mark "Rain—no games." However, we can truthfully say that we lost but one game in the season. In the social whirl, too. we were numbered among those most decidedly present. The smoker held in early October was tremendously successful. Our first dance, held on December 23. at the Waldorf-Astoria, will live forever in the annals of most joyous times. A second dance in May at the same hotel, brought new praise to the Dance Committee and more enjoyment to the devotees of Terpsichore. Very rarely lias the social activity of any class been found energetic enough to lend support to two such triumphs. The Athletic Association play brought to light more or less histrionic ability in the persons of R. B. O’Brien. J. Masterson. A. Kennedy, B. McMahon. K. Amend and F. Finnigan. When the school play was produced, Messrs. Carroll, Kidder, Masterson. Frank. Middleton. Minoguc. Purdue. Xavier. Brcslin. McMahon and Finnigan were again given parts. Xow let anyone glance over that array of names and say that 'Thespis is forsaken in '24! Let us glance now at the work of '24 as Freshmen in the Council of Debate. We find Downey. Meagher. I lamilton. Gerald and Raymond O’Brien on the lecture 122groups; Downey and Meagher on the teams chosen to represent Fordham against l of I', and Holy Cross. The highest acknowledgment of his talent as a speaker was given William Meagher in his election as captain of both teams. Now. to go as it were, from the practical to the aesthetic, we approach the enchanted domain of Chopin, of 1 'eethoven and of Mendelssohn—in other words, we come to the University Orchestra. Twenty-four is well represented here by Messrs. Dennin. Whalen, Dwyer and still another of the O’Brien tribe—-Mr. Leo O'Brien this time. He whose middle name is Tympanum—Mr. Wolfe, that is—lends grace and dignity to the drums. Still in the realms of the aesthetic, we mention "The Fordham Monthly.” Poetic effusions by Messrs. Meagher. Cassidy. Losinsky, Harrington and Finnigan; with short stories by Messrs. Brooks, McCarthy, Cassidy, Whalen and Finnigan are sufficient indications that ’24 was not lacking in literary talent. Mr. Finnigan was appointed Associate Editor of the monthly. To Mr. George Brooks fell the honor of writing the History of '24 for the "Maroon”—a very happy selection or election, as it turned out. In September. ll 21, the three sections of the class were continued as in Freshman. with this difference: A new system was installed by the Faculty. Instead of one regular teacher for all the Classics, the "Depart-from-the-mental" system, to quote Mr. Gannon, S. J., was put in operation. The Class now has Fr. Oates, S. J.. as professor of Latin, and Fathers Stedler and Tracey, as professors of Greek and English, respectively. Officers were elected early in the school year. Mr. Meagher was appointed Chairman of the committee to draw tip the rules to be observed by the Freshmen, and he did his work well. The rules were masterpieces of their kind. No doubt, they would have proved very successful, had it been possible to enforce them. But the new system already referred to, and the fact that the Freshmen were assigned to a building in a remote corner of the grounds, prevented any intercourse between the two classes. We say “a remote corner" advisedly, for the class of 25 is at present lodged in the vicinage of the office of the Prefect of Discipline, concerning whom the class of ’2-1 entertains a just dread and a holy horror. No doubt, the shadow of his baneful influence has been mainly responsible for the meek and lowly expressions on the faces of the stray Freshies. that one sees about the campus. Whatever it is, 25 seems a well-behaved aggregation of children and the restraining hand of '24 seems unnecessary. It is with deep and sincere regret, that we record herein the one and only athletic encounter during the Sophomore year of '2 1—(that is. the one and only at the time we go to press). This was a gridiron struggle between Twenty-four and Twenty-two. Flushed with enthusiasm, mad for the moment in the lust for vie tory, our gallant eleven forgot who opposed them, forgot the respect clue to the years of their aged antagonists and threw themselves whole-heartedly into the fray. O. the pity of it! Imagine, if you can. those gray-bearded Seniors vainly endeavoring to check the advance of our sturdy legion! Emotion chokes us; we can say no more. Again, in December. Twenty-four delighted the hearts of the confirmed ‘‘cake- 12.1caters," with the announcement of another dance. It seemed too much to hope that this would prove the equal of our Freshman dances, but indeed, in the opinion of the mo t “collegiate," it surpassed even those paragons of Terpsichorean delight. As the Walrus said. “It is time to talk of other things." The class found itself well represented in the "Mistakes of a Night." presented by the "Mimes and Mummers nee the “Dramatic Association." Messrs. Masterson. Carrol. Breslin. Fur-due. Frank and Finnigan were "there." as the saving is, with their hair in a braid, (literally). With another play coming in April, we imagine that the list of our Thespians will be even more magnificent. For the Council of Debate Messrs. Meagher and Downey were members of the team that upheld Fordham at Boston College. Mr. Raymond F. O'Brien was alternate. While the debate was not won. we are sure that these men added to the glory that has always been our Alina Mater’s. We who know them well and have witnessed the display of their oratorical {lowers in other debates cannot doubt that time and future victories will prove that our contention is correct. A I: of which brings us again to the sacred portals of music. As always, Twenty-four is well represented. Hiding behind the organ, we find our new brother. Mr. Freeman. Fickle Mr. Kidder has forsaken Dramatics to woo an other muse with the mellow chords of the Baby Grand. And the Brooklyn contingent! Messrs. Fallon and Kogan pick their tunes from the piccolo. Mr. Dennin still “saxes" and Mr. L. O'Brien still "cornets." Twenty-four always leads. As if he could not get enough of fame, here when we turn to the field of Literature, we find again the name of William Meagher as Associate Editor of the “Monthly" and Circulation Manager of the “Ram." And the O’Briens! Richard B. this time is after the laurels of (). Henry. Leo Harrington is becom ing a regular poet; and with Brooks, Downey and Freeman writing special editorials and panegyrics, the old class is getting along famously. Mr. J. Masterson of rubber-derby fame is writing flippant articles from the vantage point of the “Ram” staff. All that is left for us to do is to assure our friends that they will never be disappointed in the class of Twenty-four. We are proud to be among the sons of Fordham. We are conscious of the burden that rests upon our shoulders; hut we teel them capable. For this is Fordham and we of '2-1 are first and last Ford-ham's Sons. 124CLASS OF LI CL US President.................................VINCENT J. McPEAK VicePresidcnt.........................................WILLIAM CURRAN Secretary....................................I.EON SCULLY Treasurer...................................HENRY O. MCCARTHY Historian...................................EDM I ND C. RURKE History of the Class of 1925 IT is to be feared that readers of the “Maroon,” after becoming acquainted with the majestic Seniors, may be inclined to pass lightly over an account which deals merely with Freshman activities. Let it be remembered, however, that the lowly Freshman of to-day is the Senior of to-morrow, and that many a lire of genius, perhaps not even kindled at present, will blaze brightly forth within the next few years. This short history purposes to tell how the Class of ’25 has distinguished itself, during the first year of its existence, in every branch of collegiate endeavor. 127In the first place, ’25 is a mighty class. When its members gathered together on that first day. one hundred and sixty strong, they realized this. (The Sophomores realized it later on, when they tried to enforce the Freshman rules.) In fact, the class was so numerous that it was necessary for the faculty to divide it into three sections. However, the periods for each section were so arranged that all three sections had practically the same professors. Father Gaynor. S.J., made the mysteries of Latin clear to all. and Father Fremgen, S.J.. guided them successfully through labyrinths of Greek. Mr. Gannon. S.J., acquainted the class with the beauties of its native tongue, in spite, as lie himself said, of "the difficulties attached to keeping a dormitory amused.” Mathematical theories were expounded to the eager students by Mr. McGarrv, S.J., and they were instructed in the fundamentals of their religion by Father Stcdlcr. S.J. The honor of teaching Spanish to the Freshmen was divided between Father Bertolero, S.J., and Mr. Sitron, while Mr. McGarrv reigned supreme in French class. Within a week the Freshmen had elected a competent staff of officers. Hugh Holly was made President, and a very good one he proved to be. McAneny—that pugilistic son of Krin, became Vice president, and the coveted position of Treasurer was taken by "Hick” Atkinson, whose size and innocent expression doubtless inspired confidence. McCarthy was chosen Secretary, but after a few weeks bis work on the track team compelled him to resign, and Scully took his place. After a few class-meetings were held, it became evident that a very important particular had been overlooked—there was no constitution! “Dick” Charles, however. stepped into the breach. “Let us draw up a constitution.” he said, and the lines in his noble forehead bespoke the intense thought which had made possible this phenomenal burst of wisdom. With such a genius in its midst, small wonder that '25 accomplished great things! Through the efforts of Fitzgerald, that brilliant legislator, and a few others, the constitution was promptly drawn up. In February, when the officers' terms expired, the mid-term elections took place. Vincent J. Me Peak was elected President by a large majority, and he proved to he quite as successful in office as his able predecessor had been. The Vice-presidency went to "Bill" Curran, well-known and well-liked by all his class mates; and McCarthy, now no longer prone to wander around the cinder-path, was made Treasurer. Scully was unanimously re elected as Secretary, which showed very decisively how much his secretarial labors had been appreciated during the previous term. During the football season, the Freshmen amazed everyone by their unexpected activity. On the ‘Varsity squad they were represented by “Artie” Brickley— the able young quarterback whose playing attracted so much attention throughout the season, as well as by "Pete” Theis, that magnificent specimen of obesity, and bv Crowley. McAneny. and Brennan. The Freshmen, however, were not content with thus being represented on the ’Varsity team. They organized a club of their own. and played a series of games with outside teams—a feat which is unique in the annals of Freshman football at Fordham. Murphy, Kenny, Fitzgerald and Me Peak starred for the outfit. Seventeen men were presented with the numerals of their class—a really remarkable showing in view of the fact that the Freshmen who were on the 'Varsity squad were barred from the class team. 128MAROON On the ’Varsity basketball squad the Class of 25 was well represented by Germain. Crowley, and McNamee, all good men. Inasmuch as the ’Varsity put one of the best quintets of the season on the floor, defeating Vale and other notable colleges, it was no small honor for a Freshman to make the team. In its social achievements. ‘25 lived itj t the standards set by the classes of previous years. The smoker committee, composed of McShane, Xeary, O’Shea and Howlcy showed us the heights that can be reached by a committee of four Irishmen. The smoker, held in the Alumni rooms on the seventeenth of December surpassed the expectations of the most optimistic. Movies were shown, and many and interesting were the comments made by the gleeful spectators. Tempting delicacies a la Stelling were served to till the aching void; and then a remarkably elastic youth was introduced, who behaved in the strange manner common to all “eccentric dancers.” Many members of the Faculty were present, as well as guests from the other college classes and from the I'rep. It was unanimously agreed that it had been a most enjoyable occasion, and would live long in the memories of all those who attended. The annual Freshman Dance was held at the Pennsylvania Hotel on the sixth of January, and was unusually successful. Several hitherto quiet youths were seen to shake the festive foot with such reckless abandon that “Wallie" W all and “Shingle-foot" O’Shea, those demons of the dance, were compelled to look to their laurels. Many upperclassmen were present with their sisters and cousins, lending an air of importance to the whole. In the expressive words of the multi-rude it was "some hop." Do not. however, for a moment suppose that the class was enticed by its athletic and social activities to leave the beaten path of scholastic endeavor. )n the contrary. '25 s achievements along more scholarly lines easily equalled, if they did not actually surpass anything accomplished on the field nr in the ballroom. Anyone who has read the “Monthly" during the past year knows that a large number of its contributors were Freshmen. Not only did their stories and essays scintillate with originality and wit. but a higher department of literature was also enriched by their able pens—the realm of poetry. One had but to see the youthful emulators of Wordsworth flocking in with their manuscripts on each successive Monday morning, to be convinced that the Muse was no stranger to the men of 25. So marked was this poetic talent, that Mr. Gannon, S.J.. the class’s professor of English, organized the Freshman Press Club. The object of this society was the contribution of poetry by the members to the Catholic press in general. A committee composed of Murphy. McCarthy and Burke visited Father Fisher, editor of “America," in behalf of the Club and obtained a great deal of necessary information from him, including a list of the weeklies and periodicals which would welcome contributions. The work of the Club was very successfully carried out during the entire year, and the greatest satisfaction was felt by each man at the first appearance of liis efforts in print. It would he a most incomplete history of '25 which would overlook its dramatic ability. The college play. Goldsmith’s “Mistakes of a Night.' when produced by the Dramatic Association just before Christmas, brought showers of praise from all 129quarters upon the heads of the players, six of whom were Freshmen. “Jerry" Mannix. one of these, was thought by many to be the star of the entire company. It was about the middle of the year when Mr. Gannon s fertile brain devised a plan whereby the class’s literary talent could he combined with its histrionic ability. He formed what he called the “Freshman Workshop," for the composition of one-act plays. Twenty-five determined young men faced the fearsome task of adapting twenty-five short stories to production on the stage, and attending to all the details necessary for such production. They are. at this writing, tangled in a mass of inspirations, “props" and scenery to such an extent that it would be difficult for an outsider to predict the outcome of their efforts. Hut we who know the Freshmen of '25 are quite confident that the eight plays which will finally be selected for production will bring honor to their authors and to the class, and that the men who will be chosen to enact the respective roles will do them ample justice. In the University Council of Debate there were no less than ten Freshmen. Yet the Freshmen were not alone satisfied with representation in the college debating council, but formed a Freshman debating team composed of Hogan, Mc-Aniflfc. Gilson and Mannix. Although the team has up to this time participated in but one debate, their success in this encounter promises much for the future The question debated was: “Resolved. That there should lie a state censorship of the stage." The affirmative was upheld by the Fordham team, and the Freshmen of the New York University .School of Commerce appeared for the negative. The question was one of popular interest, and a large number attended the debate. The decision of the judges was unanimous in favor of the affirmative—one more feather in the cap of '25. All the important facts in the history of this class have now been set down, and it is felt that a few words regarding the members themselves would not be amiss. Scripture says: “By their fruits you shall know them"; thus the reader is now able to form quite an accurate opinion of the men of 25. Is it not fair to assume that the same success which they have achieved in their Freshman year will be their's during the rest of their stay at Fordham. and in later life? The ability of the Jesuit Fathers to turn our successful men is well-known, and the material furnished them in the members of ’25 is excellent. Watch the result!

So solid a foundation was laid by its Editor, Francis Dwight Dowley, and his associates, that the “Monthly" has endured—with but little change—to the present generation. In the interim not one year has passed but has seen the college magazine make its monthly appearance. The "Monthly" has held a conspicuous place in its many years of existence at Fordham. If not disseminating rock-ribbed principles of philosophy and applying them to the problems of today or recording the creative k and artistry of some rising genius, it always has been the vehicle for the expression of intellectual progress, and has served as an incentive to further advancement. W e of today can point with just pride to the traditions of other days, and to a long list of great and worthy men who were connected with the "Monthly" during their college careers. Dr. James J. Walsh, the eminent writer and lecturer, and man of national repute, was a member of the board of editors in 1883 and 1884. Up to the present day he extols the "Monthly" as a wonderful training school in writing, which leaves its indelible mark of confidence in expression and true understanding ot the signification of things. Thomas A. Daly, famous poet and humorist, claims the “Monthly" did much, if not everything, for him as a literary man. It was with mingled emotions ot respect and fear that the Class of 22 approached this paper of such traditions and standards. Respect has remained, but fear has vanished. While our class was yet endeavoring to make its debut into college life under the trying post-bellum conditions, "Harry" Lawrence, as an humble Freshman, was chosen an associate editor. His poetry, a thing of thought and beauty, bis essays of merit and his short satiric stories were readily recognized and reward quickly followed. As time went on the literary urge brought "Tom" Henncssy. "Dick" Dccly. John McGuire. Robert Wright. James McGarvey. Arthur Lamb. Raymond Whearry and "Honest John" Mariq.te into the select circle of contributors. In Junior, Thomas F. Henncssy entered the editorial ranks as Exchange Editor. His sound, conservative criticism has brought him a well-earned measure of praise. His work is marked by its depth and breadth of erudition and sound philosophy, .n Sophomore he was a teller of tales, and in Senior lie is an essayist of rare worth. Richard Deely lias been our master of the humorous and dramatic short 135story. His contributions have always been awaited with pleasant anticipation and our expectations were never in vain. He lias captured the indefinable something so necessary to successful writing, born in some, cultivated by others and winch might be called atmosphere. We predict his future work will bear close watching. Another of our fold. John McGuire, brought into the pages of our college paper a type of story unique and entirely “different from the usual run of college writing. His contributions have the much sought “twist. His plots are intricate and magnificent in their undertaking. His style is clear, concise and cogent. Let us add, he has given us verse, beautiful and graceful in its simplicity, thoughtful in its theme and thorough in its execution. Robert Wright has proven himself a writer of no mean ability. lie is an ardent follower of the Muse. His stories bear a charm of their own. As a whole his work shows evidence of good taste, common sense and a keen perception of proportion. It is a pleasure to record the mention of the literary deeds of James “Don” McGarvcy. His work needs no introduction. Under the able directorship of Howard Woods. 23, editor-in-chief, the “Don” has developed the “Monthly's” department of humor to a point where the "Antidote” has earned practically nation-wide recognition in scholastic circles. His wit is keen. His humor bears a rapier. His quips, clothed in language popular yet extraordinary, have never failed to carry. Due to the resignation of "Tom” Ifennessy as Exchange Editor in Senior, “Artie" Lamb took up the critic's pen. The happy choice justified the change. “Artie’s" virile style of critical composition has already been noted. Ilis methods are popular; his advice is learned. “Ray” Whearty joined the literary ranks in Sophomore. Poetic ability has marked him from the start. His pieces of verse have been models of form, fluency of style, charm and grace. The “Monthly" was indeed fortunate in securing the efforts of this gifted young man. Our one regret is that he has not given us more than he really has. His works arc stamped with literary excellence, and we are safe in saying that the Literati will lie pleased to welcome “Ray” and his works after he has received his sheepskin. The roster is completed by the name of “Honest John” Marique, the writer of the tale so simple on its surface, yet so involved in its inner workings and construction. It is said that writing reflects the man. and we believe the present instance proves the [mint. The young man is ambitious. And may it lie known his bulk of contributions is labelled with quality rather than quantity. Thus have we briefly reviewed our heritage. We shall, we hope, always have with us the thought, that we have kept faith with the standards and traditions of the “Monthly.” To the Fordham men of to-morrow we give the torch. 136I M A R O 0 N The Ram IT is- our happy duty to chronicle the revival of the Ram. the publication which, several years ago, made its weekly appearance on the campus. In accord with the spirit of progress throughout the university, the threads of this project, rudely sundered by the war. were taken up this year, and it is again established on a linn basis. The good accruing 1 Fordham with the return of the weekly can hardly be estimated, Ry it the scope of the collegiate department, the very heart of the university, is broadened, and the various branches of the 'T" are brought into intimate contact with each other, are moulded into one solid, harmonious whole. The Ram had its inception in the Kail of 1917. Mr. Quigley, S.J., professor of journalism, suggested to the Juniors that a practical application of their principles in the form of a college paper would inject greater interest into the course, and in addition be of untold benefit to Fordham. The want of such an activity had been felt for some time. The Juniors readily grasped the feasibility of the idea, and lent their hearty co-operation t the plan. The enterprise being duly launched, it was decided that a fitting name for the new publication would he the “Ram" after the college mascot. The qualities of said mascot are well known to Fordham’s sons, and it was thought that the name well typified the spirit behind the project. The honor, to say naught of the responsibility, of being first Editor fell to the lot of Raul O'Keefe, 19, and flue credit must be given him and his associates for their untiring efforts in furthering the new activity. Many helpful suggestions were rendered the budding journalists by prominent newspaper men throughout the city, who interested themselves in the success of the undertaking. With such encouragement, the end of the year found the completion of the first volume of a weekly that was indeed a credit to the Juniors and their Professor. The following year the specter of War had cast its shadow on the campus in the form of tlie Student Army Training Corps. Numbered in this organization were several members of the Ram staff, so that the work of the previous year was continued, but on a somewhat modified scale. To edit and publish a paper along with the regular duties of a private was no simple feat; but by dint of constant exertion the board of editors managed to accomplish it somehow. However, with the dissolution of the S. A. T. C. in December, 1918, evil days fell upon the Ram. Several of the staff failed to return to college, and the change to the academic regime was marked bv a vague spirit of uncertainty. Recause of this, together with influence of the well-known post-war conditions, it was deemed advisable to discontinue the Ram for a time. Thus the enterprise which had such an auspicious beginning apparently had met an untimely end. 137Editor-in-Chief JOHN E. DEVLIN Associate Editors WILLIAM III RLEY. JK.. 22 GEORGE A.

Then came a day last hall when, without am ado, the ham sprang into existence again, as suddenly as it had disapp -’are - Ho e er, lew ue aware of the difficulties attending its return. As before, the movement originated among the Juniors, and was planned as an adjunct to the Journalism course, conducted by Fr. Treacy, S.J. The sole responsibility f°r the undertaking c»tcd upon several members of the class. Charles F. Kenna. took upon himself the burden of Business Manager, while the important role of Editor was assumed by John E. Devlin. '23. The present paper was started without any financial backing whatever. But. "Audaccs fortuna juvat"—Fortune invors the brave. From the original nucleus a staff was evolved at length, and active work on the paper commenced. However, this early initiative would have availed little without the able and earnest co-operation of Frs. Cox and Treacy, S.J. From the beginning both rendered invaluable assistance Fr. Cox as business advisor, and hr. Treacy as the actual "make-up man” of the paper. Finally, after days of labor and anxiety, the new Ram made its initial appearance on November 22. and was tendered a hearty welcome by the student body of the college. Although but a four-page sheet, it was plain that the "under-grads thought well of the idea of a weekly paper. I fowever. its success was not certain without the support of all departments in the- university. Accordingly, a campaign was inaugurated to interest all the students of the university in the new activity, and brought fruitful results in a steady rise of circulation. As time went on. the staff was enlarged, advertisements began to appear in the weekly's pages, and it was a source of gratification to all concerned when the first number of March was published as an eight-page issue. From that time the success of the venture was assured. The Ram is the "little brother" of the Monthly—edited not in opposition hut in conjunction with the latter. To quote from its first issue: "The Ram does not intend to compete with the Monthly in seeking the favor of Fordham men; it means rather to unite with its fellow publication in building up in the students an enthusiastic spirit, which means so much to the life and existence of a college.’ Here in a word we have the purpose of the weekly, a purpose which can and will have hut one result—a greater Fordham! Looking forward, we see the Ram going down through the years firmly established, growing old in tradition and strength with a reign of glorious accomplishments, and possessing a measure of success which would never have been attained however, without the perserverance and ideals of its present founders. 130"Mimes 8C Mummers ” President..MICHAEL C.

TIVNAN NlXblhhX hundred and twenty-two marks the eighty-first year of Ford-hams existence, and fifty-one years ago she made her debut as Dramatics’ protege. In that time she has produced one hundred and nine plays under the auspices of the Dramatic Association, all open to the public eye; and an old Alumnus tells us her activities extended back some sixteen years before the formal organization of a thespian society in 1871. What wonders have been achieved, what history rooted firm, what success has smiled upon her every effort, it is our pleasure to tell. To tell, yes, and to marvel, for tile Dramatic Association, which so lately succumbed before the charming title of “Mimes and‘Mummers,’’ is a very mysterious moral person. Meetings, there are few; habitat, none; its members bear no vaunting insignia until, blossoming forth upon the stage. Thespian Victory descends and crowns them with the palm. Thereafter are they broadly marked in the pleasant realm of tradition. Fall departs with its football, and then the student’s heart is turned in anticipation to thoughts of the Prom and of the Varsity Play. Wild as the winds of December, tradition blows its blasts, and when the Play and Prom have vanished in a fading glow of glory, the prosaic upperclassmen scratch their heads and call with happy satisfaction the same call every year. "Best ever!” Differences of 140opinion there are some, but Fordham's excellence never reaches that unfortunate point where all sit back in self-sufficient coniplacen; and declare in solemn unison, “It can’t be bettered!” That is the spirit of Fordham. and it is that spirit which has built up the enviable record wc arc about to relate. Hut we must hie us to our history! A Minute Book whose yellow leaves betray the flight of time is the Genesis of our dramatics. In the year 1871 the "Mimes and Mummers” were formally organized, but under a less auspicious name, and we find that great event was celebrated by the presentation, for the faculty and student body, of three one-act plays—"Round the Corner,” “Frederick the Forester” and "The Irish Lion.” Unfortunately, wc do not know the specific character of each of these novelties, but of one thing we are certain: it was a night of Irish lions, for nowhere in the casts can we discover a name of other manifest extraction. That year "Handy Andy” appeared—whether to appease the gods of comedy or for satire we can not tell, but wc thank the Fates. "Handy Andy” has not been seen since. And through the seasons following, the early Thespians grew more ambitious. No less than two years later we discover three presentations, "Bourgeois Gentilhomme,” "Temptation" and Sheridan’s "Critic.” Phis Iasi play also appeared in 1881, 1890 and 1899. In 1879 five plays were given, among them “Oliver I'wist.” while 1880 was the banner year with no less than seven presentations. From then on we find alternate years when two and three plays were presented and occasional years when the average dropped to only one. Shakespeare took the stage in 18 4 with "Macbeth” and through the records we find his name often repeated. “Hamlet and "Macbeth” were each presented three times, "The Merchant of Venice" twice, and. among the others. "Julius Caesar" in 1896, "Henry IV" in 1898. “King John” in 1882. “Twelfth Night” and "Richard the Second.” This last was Fordham’s contribution toward the Tercentenary Celebration of New York City, held in 1916. In the annals we find that Shakespeare has not held sway alone. Many lighter plays were given, such as Sheridan s “ I he C ritic. the Gilbert and Sullivan opera, “The Pirates of Penzance." George Broadhursts “What Happened to Jones” (1910). "If I Were King” (1918). "Beau Brummcll” (1916) and George M. Cohan’s “Seven Keys to Baldpate.” “Rob Roy' enjoyed three presentations. "Richelieu” appeared in 1900 and “William Tell” thirteen years prior, 1887. 1921 witnessed the masterpiece of Rostand, “L'Aiglon." and the following year brought with it "The Mistakes of a Night” from Goldsmith. Again we ski]) back into the past, back to 1915. there to laud the masterly production. "Hr. Jckyll and Mr. Hyde.” And so we pass swiftly over nearly three score of years, never presuming to give a complete account, but marking the shining lights of an array that cannot but command the admiration of the student for its tradition, the faculty for its commendability and of the playgoer for its achievement. 141Henry Lawrence. 22. Fordham's young actor, well-known for his characteri ation of Lou Max in “Seven Keys to Baldpatc.” and his brilliant impersonation of L'Aiglon in Rostand's play of that name, will Ik- seen shortly on the American stage. He is here shown as the hapless “Eaglet” cajoling the old Austrian Emperor in a fleeting moment of pleasantry.We should be bill poor historians indeed were we to depart without a word for the deeds of our own class. The curiosities of our Freshman year have elsewhere been recorded, but in the confusion of a military-scholastic semester dramatics were forced off stage and forfeited for the year. For several seasons prior to our happy advent, the trends of selection had led to serious channels, and it was with great satisfaction and enthusiasm that Mr. Daniel H. Sullivan's an nouncement of the play was welcomed by the college at large. Particularly did the Dramatic Vssociation rejoice when it was learned that "Seven Keys to Baldpate," George M. Cohan's Broadway success, was to be the annual production. Of course we were interested, but not as deeply as in later years, and only with the accession of Harry Lawrence to the cast did we feci how near it was to us. When the memorable nights of April 19th and 20th arrived, we flocked to the "Fordham Theatre” and there received our first vivid impression of the excellence of our dramatic talent. Who can forget "William I lallowel Magee.” the hero-novelist of the tale—our real novelist Will Twiss O’Sullivan; or "Frank” Field-McXally, the atrocious Astoria “Hermit": or "Jim Cargan.” the cigar-chewing, elongated Jack Murphy; or Morgan J. O’Brien, alias "Reggie Thornhill.” the blackmailer; or "Joe McGrath,” the countrified son of the caretaker of Baldpate Inn; or Bill McNulty, '23, his squeeky-voiced "pater"? "Jerry” Galloway, brother of our own inimitable "Gal." was there too. and "Joe” Hamilton—-both of whom have since departed. Last but not least, came "Lou Max.” the Mayor’s "man Friday," portrayed to perfection by our genius. Harry Lawrence—famed in a later day; and one who afterward joined our ranks, "Jim" Kelly, the virtuous, villainous "Jiggs Kennedy,” chief of the Asquewan police. The "Play Day” came and went, and then we looked forward to another year when we should lead in title roles and ours should be the glory of the famous Fordham stage. Fortunately and unfortunately, that day arrived too soon. The Springtime swiftly departed and the Summer and the Fall, and when the icy breezes swept between the buildings the call of Dramatic was sounded again. Mr. Daniel Sullivan had left for Woodstock, and in his stead was a stranger whose charming personality won the friendship of all with whom he came in contact. Mr. Robert I. Gannon. S.J.. was his name, and he chose for his debut as Moderator. Edward Rostand’s ambitious masterpiece, "L'Aiglon.” How little did we realize the swiftness with which our dreams of title roles were to he fulfilled ! For when the smoke of try-outs had cleared away, behold! Harry Lawrence as the Eaglet; Jim Kelly as hi-- faithful henchman. Flambeau: Michael Isaacs, the imperial schoolmaster. Ohenaus: Ray Whearty. the dignified Archduchess Sophia; Arthur Lamb, the Countess Camerata, and even "Jerry” Kelly serving in the humble mien of a lackey! Who can forget that memorable night when Fordham’s stage became the intrigue-swept court of Napoleon? Who cannot but remember 143144 ROLLICKING TOM IIARDCASTI.K WD IMS FITFl I. MOTHKR THE Ol KEN LA K TE II VRDCASTLEthe impulsive l.'Aiglon. ambition surging eternal in his breast, who brought us nigh to tears as he lay moaning out his pitiful little life that had known not a single ray of sunshine? And oh! how proud we felt of that brave soldier. Flambeau, who thundered out his denunciation of Metternieh—the suave “Phil ' Lcddy of ’21—and Marmom and his hand of traitors, playing to the winds of international conspiracy; how we suffered with him when on the field of Wagrani he gasped his life away, dying that the Eaglet might live! Old Obenaus, as usual you waived our sympathy ; for though wc praised the man beneath the silvery wig and cosmetic wrinkles, wc could not help feeling a natural antipathy to all of your profession. W hat shall we say of you, you aristocratic old magister, the fussy Mrs. Hardcastle of another day? We can only praise, for throughout the school there is not a man who does not appreciate your worth. We cannot claim a greater light than Michael, son of Jamaica's dusky isle, hero of the Freshman plays, the scholar, the actor and the gentleman. How we should have liked to see our lanky eagle of the cinder-path. Ray hearty, lost in the personality of the Archduchess of old, gossiping with Mrs. Hardcastle—Ray with his silks and laces of Napoleon's court and Michael with his rustic English styles! What a rare spectacle for the imagination! But we must not neglect that other excellent lady,’ the Countess Camcrata. Arthur Lamb; nor "Jerry" Kelly—both of whom betrayed a wealth of ability. Of the latter we cannot help quoting that ancient saw of the poet: “He also serves who only stands and waits.” Now must we hasten on. Space is scarce and we must pass quickly over “The Mistakes of a Xight” and the Freshman productions. Michael Isaacs was our star in both. The gossipy old lady of Mr. Goldsmith's imagination could have been no less real than was the fussy Mrs. Hardcastle of the Fordham stage. Suffice it to say. the play lived up to the standard, and in some minds surpassed its predecessors through the years The Workshop brought a novelty, the production of one-act plays that were written and staged completely by the Freshmen. Of the six that were selected for public presentation, that of Mr. James Concagh, entitled “Heat." adapted from Eugene G. O’Xeil, was adjudged the best, and Michael Isaacs received the popular vote as the best actor of the evening. But besides Michael, acting the part of a paralytic in the Suicide Club of "The Ace of Spades,” we find Arthur Lamb, counting the leaves one by one in "The Masterpiece." Of the excellence of these productions it is not necessary to relate The fact that the entire college is now organized into one great “1'layshop," for the writing of truly original Fordham plays seems an open avowal of their popularity and achievement. Now a word for those who have helped make contemporary history in dramatics at Fordham. We must mention “Syl" Liddy, whose specialty is “gentlemen” —rarely good, sometimes indifferent but more often shady, the sole survivor of “Baldpate.” “Billy” Sullivan deserves a place for his excellent characterization of 145the ladies—“Hilly." erstwhile "Queen" of the Juniors. Nor must Frank Leslie be forgotten—the General Hartmann of a former episode—nor Mr. Boutot with his fellow lackey. “Char-leh" Kenna. Amongst the Sophomores we find James Carroll, whose acting in the Freshman plays, in the opinion of many, was of equal if not superior merit to that of the winner, and Fred Finnegan and Masterson and Jimmy Kidder and Dick O’Brien and “Doc Malfatti." alias John McMahon— and a score of others, saying little, doing much, achieving success. Lastly we wander to the realm of “Frosh." there to find Martin Mannix as the leading light. But no outstanding star is he, for “Connecticut" William O’Connor tags right upon his heels and Edward Lyman dignificdly holds the merry pace. John Mitchell earns a word, and surely we should wrong the class were we not to sing the name of “Matey ’ Arthur Hunter. Lastly but far from the least of those we praise is the stage crew, led by Billy Dean. '23. We cannot place them all, but we know how much credit they deserve and we take this poor means to justice. They are unseen, their work is rarely commended, little glory do they get. yet through the dust and dirt f shifting scenes they smile a happy smile for they have manned the oars and helped to pull the course to the shining goal of victory. And when the work and worry and care of the production are over and forgotten. how these hungry actors look to the Dramatic Association banquet! That is a synonym for eats galore and song and smokes, for good times and good fellowship. No need to eat beforehand, no fear of culinary wile—‘but delicacies aplenty and friendship that will come to mind with a warm glow of the heart, the glorious consummation of a glorious year. When we have joined the phantom hosts that Rose Mill has. seen come and go. when the name of 22 has become "a breath upon the winds of history" and other worthy shoulders hear the lofty title that was ours, when passing years have only’ left behind the hallowed skein of memory, then may we turn back to the humble pages of this Annual and by our glowing fireside, with friendly pipe in hand, take comfort in the thought that we at least had a share in the carving of her history. ttfSHSSi 146THE I NIVERSITY ORCHESTRA I | |mt ru».

SINNOTT Council of Debate a WAY back in 1854. almost coincident with the founding of the institution A itself, was organized a society that plays the most important part among all student activities—St. John’s Debating Society, as it was then called. Among all activities of College life, there is no organization that has more of an influence on the after-student life of its members than the Debating Society. The reason for this is evident—it accustoms its members to think with ease and speak with fluency in public. It is just this that marks a man liberally educated. Prompted by their motto—"We light friendly and conquer,' the members in the past have obtained for their society a glorious history, a brilliant record, unequalled. unsurprassed by any other activity in the history of Fordham. Now let us look back over the past four years; and when we have reviewed the society’s accomplishments, we shall surely notice that a marked record of advancement has been made. In the Fall of P IS. all College courses were temporarily suspended. The Campus was a khaki-clad mass of student officers of the S. A. I. C. Debating had to go. because all attention was taken tip by a greater movement. But when studies were finally resumed, and the boys returned to their regular classes, the newly appointed moderator, Mr. Terence L. Connelly. S.J., revived the society with great vigor. In the short space of a few months. Mr. Connelly put out a trio 14«®L M A R_0 O which was capable of defeating the strong Boston College team that had remained undefeated for many years. Toward tlie close of the year, the Prize Debate was held, and two Freshman members of the Class of 1922—Mr. Ambrose Murphy and Mr. Raymond McCauley—earned places on the team. Mr. Edward S. O’Mara, 19, received the prize as the best individual speaker of the evening. At the close of the year the following officers were elected: John S. Dillon, '20. President; Peter McManus, '21. Nice- President; Raymond P. hearty, '22, Secretary, and Harold S. Crawford. '20. Treasurer. In the following year many things were accomplished. The Prize Debate was held in February and, due to the increase in the membership of the Society, many tried out. Here again two members of the Class of 1922 were successful in obtaining places on the teams. Mr. Raymond A. McCauley and Mr. Arthur E. Lamb. The decision of the judges as to the best debater was granted to Mr. McCauley. Later on, in May of the same year. Fordham again defeated Poston College and was represented by Messrs. W illiam A. O'Brien, '20. James T. Murray, 21, and Ambrose J. Murphy. '22. A successful year was closed by the election of Raymond P. hearty. '22. President for the year 1920-21. while John ). Tocrner. '22. was chosen Vice-President; John Mulvey, '23, Secretary; Michael C. Isaacs, 22. Treasurer, and Gerald Galloway, '23. Censor. When we returned to our classes in the following Fall, we found that Mr. Paul McNally. S.J.. had been appointed the Moderator. Mr. McNally was not Moderator long before be introduced a new idea t the Debating Societ)—the organization of lecture teams. These teams were to go about the city, visiting parishes, K. of C. meetings and Holy Name Societies, for the purpose of giving correct information on current happenings and problems. Four teams of four men each were selected and. by their capable treatment of both the Question of Capital and Labor and the Smith-Towncr Bill, earned a name for the society throughout the Greater City. Later the Junior-Varsity was chosen to debate the Junior-Varsity of the University of Pennsylvania. Messrs. W illiam Meagher. ’24; George A. Kenyon, '23. and William F. McNulty, ’23. upheld Fordham against the Smith-Towner Bill. Before one of the largest audiences ever assembled in the University Auditorium, the Fordham debaters won a unanimous decision over their opponents. Messrs. William R. Meagher. ’21 : Francis Downey. ’24. and William McNulty. '23, debated Holy Cross at Worcester, and won another victory for Fordham by defeating the strong team of their sister college. As the year approached its close, the faculty decided that an ()ratorical Contest would be held instead of the usual Prize Debate. )ut of the large number of contestants twelve were allowed to compete. The Class of 1922 was represented by Messrs. Michael Isaacs. Arthur E. Lamb. Thomas F. Hcnnessy and Arthur Weglein. Mr. George Sauer, '23. was chosen the best speaker of the evening. 1 he following officers were elected for the year 1921-1922. Mr James T. McConnell. President: Mr. Michael C. Isaacs, '22. Vice-President; Mr. Joseph Welling. '23. Secretary; Mr. Edward Sinnot. 22, Treasurer; Mr. Thomas F. Tlen-ncssy. '22. Censor, and Mr. Ray O'Brien. '24. Chairman of the Contest Committee. The year was closed by the Annual Banquet, which took place in the College refectory. 149In the fall, the Society again resumed its work, with the Woolworth Building as a meeting place—a change necessitated by class schedule conflicts. Another change was the adoption of “Council of Debate of Fordham University" as the name of the Society. Despite obstacles which seemed insurmountable, the Council flourished in its new abode. The novelty of the thing, the central location, close association with ollici schools, were all factors which contributed to the general success of the society in its first weeks in it new home. The meetings took on the form of a Forum. Current topics as subjects for debate brought lively discussion between the regular and voluntary debater, and time and time again the meetings ran far into the night. In the mid t of ibis activity, Mr. McNally, the Moderator, was called away to Woodstock and the piloting of the Council was put in the hands of Mr. John Collins. S.J. Sincere regret on the part of the Council members marked the departure of Mr. McNally. W e had learned to admire his energetic ways, which had produced many innovations, and promised others for the future. We were consoled, however, in having a capable man as his successor. Toward the end of tile first term, the novelty of attending the Woolworth Building began to wear off and meetings bad to be postponed for want of a quorum. But the energetic work of Mr. Collins and President James McConnell brought the society back on the road to a successful year’s journey. The new term found the society again entrenched in its old stronghold. Alumni I lull. Attendance increased, new members sought admittance and intercollegiate debates were reported listed by the Contest Committee. Tryouts were held for the Holy Cross debate, and Messrs. Thomas M. Keresey, '23. Mr. George S. Sauer, '23. and F.dimmd F. Lamb. ‘23, were selected to represent Fordham. The question to be debated was “Resolved, that the Federal Government should own and operate the railroad of the United States." Fordham took the negative side of the question. The Fordham team, before a crowded auditorium, gained a very close victory. The debaters are to be commended for their splendid showing. The Council of Debate then sent a team to Boston College to debate the question: “Resolved, that the Ratification of the Four Power Pacific Treaty is for the best interests of the United States." Messrs. Francis X. Downey. 24. George A. Kenyon, '23. and William R. Meagher. 24. upheld the negative side for F'ord-ham. The decision was rendered against our team, and with true Fordham spirit. we felicitate the victors, hoping for a return bout. Harlier in the term, a Freshman debate was held with the New York University School of Commerce. The subject debated was “Resolved, that there should be a State Censorship of the Stage." The affirmative side was defended by Messrs. Gilson. Hogan and McAnifif. and the decision was rendered in their favor. Further Freshman activities in the field of debating are being planned, and as we go to press debates with Columbia and X. Y. L . are pending. In order t carry out the plan of the society to send teams among the parishes for instructive purposes, two debates were arranged this year. One in St. Gregory's Parish, Manhattan: the other in St. Brcnden's in the Bronx. “Resolved, that the Sour Power I reaty should be ratified" was the question, and Mr. John F. Gilson. '2a. and Mr. Edmund F. Lamb. 23. upheld the affirmative, while Mr. Francis X. Downey. 24, and Mr. Gtorge A. Kenyon. '23. defended the negative side. 150Another Junior Varsity debate was held ibis year between Fordham and the I’niversity ol I‘ennsylvania. Messrs. Raymond O'Brien. 24. John MeAniff, 25, and Kdward llogan. 25. were sent to Philadelphia to present the negative side of the question "Resolved, that the City Manager Plan of Government should be adopted by the larger American municipalities. I'p to the time the judges gave their decision the Fordham team felt certain of victory, having made a wonderful presentation of their side, but the verdict was two to one against them. In carrying out the policy inaugurated by Mr. McXallv. Mr. Collins appointed bis lecture teams for this year’s tour before Catholic audiences in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Jersey. These groups are to continue the good work of the last year’s team, and are to lecture on a very interesting and time!) subject, "Americanism and Foreign Propaganda." each speaker taking a different phase of the question. The first group consists of Messrs. Francis X. Downey. '24. John Mulvey. ’25. and Thomas Keresey, '23. The second group comprises Mosrs. Arthur Wegleiu. 22. Edward Hogan. '25. and William Meagher. '24. The third group is composed of Messrs. Arthur Lamb, '22. James McKeigney, '23. and Edmund Lamb. ’23. As the year is approaching a close, every member of the society is looking forward to the Annual Oratorical Contest. Eight speakers survived the tryouts, and will compete for the prize in May. They are Messrs. M. Isaacs and A. H. Lamb, of the Class of 1922: Messrs. (’.. Sauer, G. Kenyon. T. Mulvey. J. Mc-Keigncv and T. Keresey. of the Class of 1923. and Mr. I . Downey, of the C lass of 1924. On looking back over the past four years, the Class of 1922 is proud of the record made by its members. Among the able speakers of the society in the past it can boast of Messrs. Michael C. Isaacs, "Ray McCauley. Arthur Lamb, Arthur Weglein and "Ray" Whearty. while among the officers of the past it is particularly proud of the work of "Ray" Whearty and “Jim" McConnell, who guided the society through the past two stormy years into the harbor of success and among the other officers, "Ed Sim'iot, "Tom llemiessy, "Mike Isaacs. And now at the end of our stay at Fordham—at the end of these four glorious years—the Class of 1922 extends to the Council of Debate its beaitiest wishes for further success. The progress that the society has made in the past four years is tremendous. And we trust that upon this record as a foundation, the incoming classes will build what will turn out to be in future years the greatest society of its kind in intercollegiate circles. 151PARTHENIAN SODALITY OFFICERS First I re feet TIMOTHY A.

S.J. 152Parthenian Sociality OX February 2, 1837. at St. Mary’s College, in Rayville, Kentucky, was founded the Parthenian Sodality, a small body of students which had for its end and object “to procure to the members a more easy and efficacious means of leading now and hereafter a Christian-like life." From this humble beginning it has progressed rapidly, and now there is not a Jesuit college or university without a Parthenian Sodality, constantly reminding its followers ot the aim and purpose which was intended by its founders. In 1846 the Sodality was brought to Fordham by Fr. Legonais, and since then the chapel in the Old Rose Hill Manor has been tilled with the many prayers which have been offered up to Our Blessed Mother by the members who gather there to worship Her. The fiftieth anniversary of the Sodality was celebrated in 1887 by the erection of a beautiful statue of the Blessed irgin, in the quadrangle, and it is a most inspiring spectacle to see the students gather around the statue during the month of May. when the devotions are carried on outdoors, singing the praises of her who was chosen to be the Mother of the Savior. During the May devotions it is the custom for the members of the graduating class to deliver brief addresses on our Blessed Mother. Toward the close of the school year a reception is held, all the new members being publicly received into the Sodality, and during this very impressive service the Reverend Fr. Rector addresses the gathering, dwelling at length on the many benefits to he derived from the close communion with our Beloved Mother, which is connected with a membership in this Sodality. In more recent years too much credit cannot be given to the Rev. Fr. Francis O’Loughlin. S.J., who has occupied the directorship for fifteen years, and by his untiring efforts has maintained interest in the Sodality, continually exhorting ii members to keep uppermost in their minds the ideals for which it was created. His brief, instructive talks at the weekly meetings are a source of inestimable benefit, and his choice seeds of wisdom have fallen on fertile ground, for the zeal manifested by the Sodality members is but the result of Fr. O'Loughlin’s earnest endeavors to impress upon them the importance of such an organization, especially during this period of their lives. The memory of the many happy moments spent in the religious exercises of the Sodality, under the patronage of the Blessed Mother, will doubtless prove to be an unfailing source of comfort to men of Fordham when they have passed beyond the elms which grace Rose Hill Manor, and many will be the prayers of thanksgiving offered up to Her for the invaluable aid She has been in the material struggles of this life; then, and only then, will we be reminded that a membership in the Parthenian Sodality endures for eternity. 153The Harvester Club CASTING about for a further means for advancing bis life work, bis Reverence. Hi shop Dunn, in the Fall of 1920 hit upon the happy expedient of enlisting the active co-operatiun of the colleges of the archdiocese. Hearkening to his call, all the institutions of higher education fell in line to present a formidable array to the heathen. Mr. Robert I. Gannon. S.J.. was chosen Spiritual Director of the Fordhani branch of the League. In the Fall term of the scholastic year 1920-21 he issued a call for members and the college body enthusiastically responded. At the second meeting of the club its name “Harvester' was chosen for obvious reasons. The Moderator gave a short address on the work and object of the association, after which the members proceeded to elect their officers. They chose Mr. King. '21. President: Mr. Whearty. Vice-President, and Mr. Sauer. Financial Secretary. It would not be amiss here to state in brief the sum and substance of the Moderator's address. He gave as the purpose of the club the helping of Foreign Mission work. The Society for the Propagation of the Faith needs help and calls on the members of the colleges for such assistance. Now whereas an organization is needed to carry on systematic work and obviate useless, fruitless labor, such an organization is being formed at Fordhatn. Thus the Harvester Club of Fordhani came into existence. Their one and only purpose is to help Bishop Dunn in his magnificent work. The club quickly got down to business. Their first action was to send out members to certain parochial schools of the archdiocese to explain to the children the great work which calls for any assistance they may he able to give. In such a manner thev reached and enlisted the spiritual and in some cases the material assistance of 8.000 little ones. However, to obtain better co-operation between the colleges and also to bring funds into the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, a scheme was hit upon— name]v. the running off of concerts, “the dansants." etc. The first “the dansant" was held at the Plaza in the Spring of 1921 and proved to be both a financial and social success. in the Fall of 1921 the “Harvesters" elected new officers. Mr. Sauer was elected President; Mr. Whearty. Vice-President, and Mr. Brooks, Secretary and Treasurer. Ivncouraged by their successes of the preceding year the club has arranged a series of similar events for this year, the first of which is to take place a short time after this writing. Numerous socials meanwhile, on the style of tea dances, have been held at the different colleges to discuss ways and means for advancing the work. On March 11. 1922, a concert was given at Fordhani, and the remainder of the year lies ahead for its activities. If past achievements are any indication whatever, these Propagation clubs can be assured of success. lust one word more. The Fordhani club is the one which set the pace and has not yet been outstripped. All thanks are flue to the Moderator, who. by bis untiring zeal in a worthy cause, lias added another success to his long string of conquests. I5tST. VINCENT DF. | A I I. SOCIETY President JOHN V.

Meetings of the Conference arc held weekly throughout the college year and at them the work of the organization is reviewed and plans are discussed for furthering its activities. John F. McManus, '23, was President this year, and his efforts and untiring energy have been largely instrumental in the results achieved by the conference. For the last two years Fr. Philip J. Debold, S.J., has acted as Spiritual Advisor of the Conference, and by helpful suggestion and advice has rendered valuable aid to the society. During the past year the club sponsored two smokers, which were distinctly successful both socially and financially. Through this medium, funds were raised for the work of the organization. In addition to the actual charitable work done by the society, it is a custom for the members to make a weekly visit to Randall's Island on Sunday mornings to afford some religious instruction to the unfortunate inmates. 1 he good work accomplished by Fordham's Conference of St. incent de Paul is tor the most part unknown, for it is done quietly, far from the public gaze. It is a work which has none of the glamour connected with other activities and it not measured in terms of dollars and cents but of kind deeds done. And it is because of this that the members are to be especially commended.The University Seal PRESUMING : Ii:it everyone knows the why and when fore ot a seal, let us he specific, and. passing over the indictment on our sheepskin, come down to that apparently insignificant impress, which validates and authenticates the parchment before us as a Fordham University diploma. In the center of this seal is an escutcheon within which is the monogram of the Sacred Name, the II of which i surmounted by a cross, llencath this monogram are the three nails of the crucifix. Flaying along the lower sides and bottom of the escutcheon is a long narrow curling scroll bearing the words “Sapientia et Doctrina" Wisdom and Learning fitting equipments for the world of striving. Above the escutcheon is a circle containing the laurel wreath of victory, which in turn incloses the courses of the University. Arts. Science. Philosophy. Medicine and Law. Proceeding from either side of this circle, and forming the outer boundary of the seal is a belt, buckled, and with its end lapping over in a neat and natural manner. Starting on the left, around the belt are the words "Univer-sitas Fordhamensis." separated by the circle of “promise" above, and by the date of the College’s establishment below i 1841). This is the true Fordham seal adopted in 1914. Examine the seal on our class rings, or on this year’s “Fordham Monthly." This seal is the genesis of the seals of Loyola and of the Society. Instead of the belt we have two unbroken circles with no laurels at the top. The next point of difference is in the shield, the Coat of Arms of the family of Loyola. How many of ns have mistaken those rampant animals of the shield as lambent lions, between which was the torch of wisdom. Yet how far from the truth! A mere analysis of the family name. Loyola, would have dispelled all doubt. Loyola may be broken up into “lobo y olla.” or the wolf and the jx t—Lot bo)yol(l)a. Yes, the animals are wolves rampant, between which is suspended a cauldron. The first seal of the College was the Society of Jesus Seal, a sample of which we may see above the front entrance to the Auditorium. 'Phis seal was in use at Fordham from 1846 to 1891. In 1891 between the outer and inner circles was inserted the name of the College in Latin, and the date of its founding. In place of the Sacred Monogram. St. John was represented. Through some error, the Evangelist was represented instead of the Baptist. and so, in 1894. the monogram was replaced. A year or two later the Loyola Seal was adopted within the inner circle, and below it was the “Sapientia et Doctrina" as we find it today. In 1907 the name of the college was changed to Fordham University and a corresponding change made in the seal. The resulting seal was supplanted hv the new seal. 1914. Thus has the seal evolved: yet today the core of the seal is the monogram even as it was 76 years ago. Apropos of this monogram, many students, mistaking the Greek II for the English IT. think “Jesus ITominum Salvator" the correct interpretation. 156ATHLETICS FOREWORD THE year of 1921 and 1922 lias been a momentous one in die history of the Fordham Athletic Association. A new regime of administration has been instituted and though it is still in the embryonic stage, its good effects already have become manifest. By the time the football season had terminated, it had become evident that the evils of the system under which the Association had been conducted for a few years prior to that date far outnumbered its benefits: so it was decided to bring the management of affairs closer to the faculty and students of the university. The first step taken in that direction was the appointment of the Rev. Charles J. Deane. S.J., as faculty director of athletics. Scarcely had Father Deane assumed the duties of his new office, when he announced the appointment of Frank Gargan, Class of 'll. far famed in football circles, to the post of Graduate Manager. The first of Mr Gargan’s innovations came in the institution of a one-year migratory rule, forbidding athletes who had taken part in sports at another college to participate in athletics at Fordham without an interim of one year. This ruling was sorely needed and was welcomed with great enthusiasm among the Alumni and students of the university. The Association itself, which had long been dormant, was revived and a temporary constitution adopted, according to which, two governing bodies, known as the Advisory Board and the Student Athletic Council, were instituted. The Advisory Board, composed of the faculty director, the graduate manager, three members of the Alumni, the managers of baseball and football and the I’resident of the A. A., renders the final decision on all matters concerning sports. The Athletic Council, composed of the officers of the A. V. the managers of the various sports and representatives from the lower classes, furnish the Association with the opinions of the students, which opinions are presented to the Advisory Board by the President of the A. A. The establishment of these institutions is a propitious start in our drive for better and cleaner athletics: and we hope that a few years hence, we shall see Fordham’s banner hoisted to the topmost position on the staff of athletic glory. 157OFFICERS OF THE F.

The entry of the 1920 football season at Fordham resembled a premature Xew Years Eve. Not since the days of the S. A. T. C. had the thud of the pigskin been heard at the Maroon Field, and the pent tip anticipation and enthusiasm found an outlet in the eager cheers of the three thousand supporters who attended the opening game with the Xew York Aggies. That this game and the subsequent encounters were made possible redounds to the credit and zeal of "Ed" dc Pasquale. the bustling manager. Not earlier than the previous Spring had the faculty made known its intention of permitting the re-entry of the sport; and in formulating a schedule there devolved upon “Ed the difficulty of negotiating with other managers, whose only care, with schedules complete, was to sit back and wait for the games. Nevertheless lie gathered together a schedule that was at once a fine test of the newly organized team's ability and a satisfying one to the student body’s longing for big “doings." As coach we were fortunate in the acquisition of “Joe" Duinoe, who had previously starred at Fordham and who, the year before, after a successful season at Lafayette, had been the choice of the critics for All-American end. As his assistant he chose "Buckie" McDonald, former Lehigh star. W e. as Juniors, had a personal interest in the eleven, since we had to represent us such men as "Lou" Healey. “Tommy" Fallon, Moran. Gately. ergara and 1 1 11, who contributed much to the team’s strength. From the first shrill pipe of the opening whistle, the team, led by Captain “Syl" Fitzpatrick, fulfilled to the utmost the expectations of the cheering three thousand. At the expense of the “Aggies." the Maroon eleven piled up a total of 71 points, while the opponents could make no headway toward our goal-line. H,e work of “Cliff" Steele, punter extraordinary, was the feature. The following Saturday came a defeat, but a glorious one. I raveling to Boston, we faced the powerful Boston College eleven, which was priming to beat Yale for the second consecutive year, and though the final result stood -0-0 (,10 disgrace in itself against so formidable a foe), it was only a few breaks of the game that made the score quite so large. 159 RSITY FOOTBAI.I.

The final score was 12-6. the scant margin of victory marking the usual keen tussle that ensues whenever these two opponents meet. A huge crowd, numbering among it many of the Blue and Gray Alumni and adherents in New York, turned out to witness the Georgetown contest. The Washington contingent displayed its “class” by scoring almost immediately, but the Maroon showed its fighting spirit by ticing the count just as the first period ended on a forward pass which Captain Fitzpatrick caught just over the goal-line. But then the power of the Blue and Gray team asserted itself and they added from time to time to their score, despite the stubborn resistance of the game Fordhamites. In the final quarter, Fordham, realizing its only hope lay in the aerial route, turned loose forward pass after forward pass for big gains, and one of these, a long one from Noonan to I lalloran. added another touchdown to our score. Then, just as it appeared we might score again, a Georgetown man intercepted a pass and raced over our line for the last touchdown of the game. The final score stood -10-16. I'pon the reception of an invitation from the Detroit University eleven we decided to tackle the husky westerners. From the start we were no match for our much heavier opponents, hut the one bright light in the defeat was the forward passing work of Noonan and Fitzpatrick. With “Jerry” tossing them and “Fitz” on the receiving end. it was said they were the best forward passing pair ever seen in that section of the West. But it was not sufficient to penetrate the defense and the game ended, University of Detroit, 39; Fordham, 0. We re-enforced our ictorv column at the expense of George Washington to the tune of 15 0. It was a rather one-sided affair, featuring Kearns and Ryan as well as the reliable Fitzpatrick and Noonan. But Muhlenberg sprung a surprise and a “nip and tuck' tussle ensued. A long forward pass snared by Fitzpatrick COACH JOF. I)IJ MOK 161paved the way to our lirst touchdown. Then “Charley" Gately brought the ball within scoring distance and “Jerry ' Noonan did a “hook-slide" over the line for our first score. “Fitz" tallied our only other touchdown on a forward pass and the Allentown Dutchmen yielded—only 13-0. ()n Thanksgiving Day we journeyed to Worcester only to meet with a sudden snowstorm, and our confidence «»1 beating the Holy Cross eleven was not given an opportunity to prove its worth. While at Worcester the team re-elected Captain “Sylvie" Fitzpatrick, and. with “Joe" Dumoe. retained as coach, to aid him, we looked forward to a successful season in 1921.

THE opening of the 1921 football season was looked forward to with more enthusiasm and anticipation than ever before, a fact well attested to by the crowd of six thousand that saw the opening contest at Fordham Field. At the mass-meeting held in the Auditorium the day before “Joe” Oumoe, starting his second season as coach; “Charley” Brickley, former Harvard stellar performer and now Maroon backtield coach, and “Turk" Sullivan, once a Boston College star and now drilling the Fordham line, presented their case before the undergraduates and vouched for a successful season. "Jim" Kelly, the hardworking manager, showed his schedule and s;x)ke at length on its possibilities; and finally Fr. Cox. late of Boston College, but now an enthusiastic Maroon advocate, stirred up latent enthusiasm by a speech 011 zeal and loyalty for Alma Mater. So it was that even a warm Saturday, September 24th. drew out one of the largest crowds that ever attended a Maroon game. Our opponent was the University of Maine and no worthier one could have been chosen for an opening game. Though the crowd, with imbued confidence in our gridiron array, rather expected an easy victory, the constant experimenting by the three mentors to give every player a chance to exhibit his wares and the excellent brand of football put up by the boys from the North limited the result of the contest to the respect-aide score of 23 to 14. "Tommy” Meyers was our individual star, with Arthur Brickley, Fallon and W oodward giving valuable assistance, while Fullback Gvuhne starred for the Maine Collegians. 162LINE COACH SULLIVAN H XCKFIF.ll) COACH BRICK LEY On October 8th Ira Rodgers, former West Virginia "plieiiom.’’ ushered his strong Catholic U niversity eleven into our portals and it was only after the hardest kind of a fight that we emerged victorious, 10-0. The game was played on a slippery field, which resulted in the unfortunate accident to our captain and star. “Syl Fitzpatrick, a broken bone in his wrist that took from us his valuable services until the final contest of the season. A field goal bv "Tommy ’ Myers from the 40-yard mark furnished our first score and a forward pass from the same youngster to Woodward carried over the only touchdown, Bricklev kicking the goal. Next came the Yillanova Collegians from Philadelphia to form the opposition in a weird contest that terminated by the light of the moon. Ford ham, completely outplayed for three periods, rallied in the final and. after creeping up to a 19-14 count, scored just before the final minute of play what appeared to be the winning touchdown. But Yillanova claimed that Cannitt had run out of bounds, and. although the head linesman said nay. the referee pleaded darkness and the surging crowd as an excuse for not seeing the play, refusing to accept his colleague’s ruling. After a heated half-hour argument, the captains agreed on a 20-20 tie. 163()n Saturday, October 2ind, the Polo Grounds was the scene oi an interesting encounter between Lafayette and Fordham. The Easton outht ranked among the foremost in the country and we were “conceded but an outside chance of holding them to a respectable score. ' But 28-7 against such an opponent was not at all disgraceful, and had we played during the entire contest as we did in the second half the margin would have been much smaller. The entry of “Tommy” Fallon into the game in this half seemed to instil new life into the team, and after “Tommy" Myers had intercepted a forward pass to race 75 yards for a touchdown, our boys fought like demons. "I,on" Healey later duplicated this feat; but to no avail, because both teams had been off side. The contest ended with Lafayette in possession of the ball on our two-yard line, with even the Easton supporters cheering our gameness. The Boston College game at Ebbets Field the next Saturday proved highly disappointing to Maroon enthusiasts. But a few minutes of play was necessary to show Boston College was not the team of yore; nevertheless, though outplaying them throughout and making fourteen first downs to their three, we could not score. Quite a large Boston delegation was on hand, and seemed satisfied with the result of the play. Asa Boston paper put it. “Boston College holds -powerful Fordham eleven to a scoreless tie." Flaying our third successive contest at a major league ball park, we faced the powerful Georgetown aggregation at American League Park, Washington, on November 5th. the first time in years that they did not come North for ilie contest. hether or not it was the shock from news of a bus accident to some of her adherents coming South to view the pastime. Fordham put up a rather lifeless game and the Blue and Grav marched off with the victory, 24-7. I lealev, Hogan, Stein and Fallon played best for us. Muhlenberg repeated this dose at Allentown the following week. 12-7. This was not exactly disgraceful, in view of the fact that she had already proven her unexpected strength at the expense of Swarthmore and Lehigh; but we were the first to score foil Mahoney's touchdown and Strands goal) and might have held the advantage. Nevertheless they avenged their 1920 setback at Fordham. Witt scoring two touchdowns and Fulcher kicking the goals. But then came the final game, a bright light to illumine the darkened corner 164MEYERS BOOTS ONE—FORDHAM VS. LAFAYETTE of previous defeat. On Saturday, November 19th, at Springfield, Fordham put forth the latent strength which we all knew it had possessed, and triumphed 14-0 over the strong Springfield Y. M. C. A. team that had held Cornell (though on a inuddv field) to the same score. This game was a surprise to everybody, the entire eleven displaying much-needed teamwork, with "Artie Boutot. in his first start, showing excellent work at quarter and Fitzpatrick proving, by a stellar performance tlie handicap the team had been under without him. After a 10-yard forward pass. Meyers to Schlickenmeyer, had placed the ball a like distance from the goal. “Schlick” again took it and traversed the necessary yards for a touchdown. Another forward pass. 20 yards. Meyers to Fitzpatrick, constituted our other score. Strand kicking both goals; but Springfield scored not at all, owing to the fine defensive work of the team as a whole. OfT-side play prevented “Tommy” Meyers’ 90-yard run from making another touchdown count. Thus ended a season peculiar in many respects. After a whirlwind start that justified the expectations of greatness, the work gradually fell off until the Spring-field game, which, although redeeming to a great extent poor previous performances, nevertheless served to show that something had been wrong. “Tommy” Meyers, whose all-around playing had been the sensation of this football year, was chosen captain of the 1922 team. As Meyers’ work had been of such merit all year as to earn him mention on several All-American combinations, our next team is sure to prosper under his captaincy. 165Standing: I'M IHN . Mi: Ml .

This may or may not be so; but, as Freshmen, we had much to he proud of in the 1910 team that represented the Maroon on the diamond. Suffice it to sav that it was the team on which Frisch played. Loosened from the uncertainties and confining tendencies of the S. A. '1'. C.. college athletics took a new lease on life, and the baseball nine, influenced hv the star in their midst, showed to a man a brand of ball that won them a coveted portion in Eastern baseball circles, with the distinction of being the only team to defeat Holy Cross. The powerful 1‘urple combination was chosen best team in the East, with Fordham tied with Yale for second place. Our own contribution to this successful season was the phenomenal Freshman twirlcr. “Tim” McNamara. W ith no intention of belittling the other mound-men. it can safely be said that ‘ Timmy" was the pitching staff of that powerful team. He was not slow in evidencing his ability. Cathedral, the season's first opponent. could do nothing with his offerings while he held the mound, and we were victors to the tune of 5 0. Seton 1 Sail took the same dose. 5-1. Then we journeyed to New Haven, there to lose a close 11-inning game to Yale, 8-7. Boston College administered another defeat, a late rally netting a 4-1 victory. After winning the return game with Seton Hall we journeyed South to earn a 50-50 break in four contests. Georgetown and the Navy were victors, but we triumphed over Catholic University and the strong Baltimore nine, later champions of the International League. 8-7, “Dimp” Halloran holding the hard-hitting Orioles to four bingles. Boston College won once more at Boston. But then the Varsity found itself, and, starting with a decisive 10-4 (ten-inning) win over Holy Cross, showed a decided partiality for victory over the course of the eleven remaining games. Columbia. 7-1: Catholic University (this time at Fordham). 8 4; Princeton. 7-1, and Rutgers. 9-1, furnished exhibitions of Maroon superiority. The Princeton 167game in particular furnished an example of a usual occurrence of that season’s play—a 1-1 pitching duel between Margctts and McNamara until the ninth, when there suddenly broke forth the Maroon attack, which, including a triple by the flashy Frisch. amassed a total of six runs. In a return game at New Haven, before a huge crowd, featured by the pitching of McNamara and all-around work of Frisch. Ford-ham emerged victorious over Yale in eleven innings, 4-2. Five more victories followed—over the Crescent A. C. Staten Island Base Hospital. l S. S. Pennsylvania (“champs" of the Atlantic Fleet). Syracuse and Lafayette, and the season closed with a hatting orgy victory over Yillanova. 20-.V Frisch and Sweetland graduated into the Big Show. The latter was signed by the Boston Braves and the “Flash’s" success with the New York Giants is a nationwide sensation. Of this, one of the hardest-hitting college teams of all time, “Al" Lcfcvrc was chosen captain for the following year. Baseball, 1920 Mnnatter: ALOYSIUS ARTHUR. 20 Captain: ALFRED LEFEVKE, 20 Asst.

W ith this in mind, and because, too, of the hard schedule Manager Arthur had contrived to arrange on the “rep" of the previous season. Coach Arthur Devlin had the boys out early and preparations were made for a successful season. This year "Bill" McLoughlin, coming back a bit to cover a missed Sophomore year, ably assisted “Tim" McNamara in carrying our honors into the fray. FORDHAM AT YALE, 1921 168MAROON Boston College continued its persistent spell over tlie Maroon by taking 11 it first game of the season at Fordham Field. 3-2. but we evened the count the Saturday following by taking the University of ermont into camp. 3-1. "Bud” Culloton having the better of a pitching duel with Kibbe. During Easter week the Sunny South gave our boys a cool reception in the matter of weather. "Artie Devlin claimed he shivered away at least ten pounds, and the appearance ot the squad on the held with overcoats was sufficient to warrant the calling off of the Johns Hopkins game. But of the three played, the Maroon succeeded in winning two—losing t Georgetown. 4-0: defeating Villanova, 8-6, and Catholic University, 5-1 : the last, a finely pitched game by McNamara. Vale’s apparently weak nine braced sufficiently at New Haven to administer an unexpected beating. »-4. but our boys came back with three straight victories— Colgate and Tufts by the same score. 5-2. and Catholic University in a close one, 7-6. Then at South Field we met a reverse at the hands of Columbia, 2-0, Meany besting "Timmy Mac" in a pitching duel; but "Jeff" Tesreau's Dartmouth aggregation met defeat at our hands, 4-3. T his should have been won by a larger score, but it would not have done credit to the best fielding game of the year at Eordham, featured by the work of the respective shortstops. Lefevre and Maynard. After defeating Johns Hopkins. 11-2. we lost two heart-breaking affairs in succession—to W est Virginia, a hard-hitting game. 6-5. and Penn State. 3-2: but then came a successful trip to Boston, where we broke the Boston College "Jinx." 2-0. in eleven innings. It is but just that we should here mention the wonderful pitching exhibition of "Freddy" Waters. In eleven innings he was reached for but one hit. and that with two out in the ninth, a single by shortstop Bond, the Boston College Captain. In the return game at Fordham, Columbia bowed to the tune of 4-2. Then, after the Holy Cross game had been cancelled for the second time by rain, came Pittsburgh to taste of defeat, 5-1. Crescent A. C. lost. 7-1. and we journeyed t Philadelphia, to lose, 1-0. but to furnish University of Pennsylvania with one of the stiffest contests she’d ever had. On Alumni Day at Fordham we evened the count with Georgetown, 5-2. 1 hen, in our feature game of the season on Decoration Day. the University of California, which had been slugging its way to victory all along the route to New York, bowed before the airtight pitching of McNamara. Only three measly hits did he allow them, and, aided by Buckley's homer, we triumphed, 6-2. Next came Maryland State to be trounced by a large score, and. after the unhappy postponement of the Army game because of rain. St. John's also met defeat at our hands, 4-0. On the final swing through the North, the Maroon played four games for a .500 169rating. Vermont avenged her previous defeat, 6-2. and Harvard bested us, o-O; but we achieved clean-cut victories over Norwich University at Xorthfield, t., 5-1, and over Rensselaer at Troy. 7-5. After the final game "Dimp" llalloran, pitcher, outfielder, hitter, was chosen Captain for the following year—a worthy selection of a deserving man. In a resume of the season's work, we must praise foremost the pitching staff—“Big Tim McNamara, always a “crack"; “Freddy" W aters, who ran up a string of seven consecutive victories at one time during the year, and “ISlid” Culloton, who despite streaks of "hard-luck" exhibited a sterling brand of pitching always. Then we cannot forget “Cousey.” who received their offerings so successfully, Buckley in the outfield, and Captain Lctevrc. McGraw must have liked M s looks the day our men went down to the inevitable defeat of 11-0 before the Giants, for the beginning of the championship season saw A1 in a Giant uniform. And to Captain-elect llalloran we looked forward to great things in 1921. Baseball, 1921 Manager: JAMES I . MAHONEY. 21 Coart,: ARTHUR DEVI.IN Captain: CLARENCE R. HALLORAN, ‘21 Asst.

Coach “Artie Devlin started his third year as Maroon mentor by sounding the call for baseball candidate early; and from the wealth of material on hand, veteran and new. a strong combination was evolved. With the prevalence of the last couple of years our greatest strength was in the box and behind the plate. W ith McNamara.

Then came two successive setbacks in games that should have been ours, one an eleven-inning affair at Georgetown, 5-4, the other a "late-rallv" defeat at the hands of Catholic University, 8-7. Thus the Southern trip ended rather disastrously. But. upon its return to the North, the team braced and annexed three consecutive victories. Seton Hall fell. 6-3; University of Vermont likewise. 5-1. and then came the Vale game at New Haven. Well over 100 loyal rooters found their way to the game by devious routes, and shouted themselves hoarse, oulrooting 4,000 Eli supporters. Captain "Dimp” Halloran "brought home the bacon" by a timely thump in the seventh that sent across the two runs needed to win. Yale's onlv tallv came in the same - inning on a homer by Captain Peters. McNamara held his hard-hitting opponent- to tour scattered blows and fanned a goodly number. The team to a man did nobly on that memorable Saturday afternoon, and the rooters celebrated with a snake-dance after the game. The following Tuesday we attended the Polo Grounds to witness an expected setback at the hands of the New York Giants. The Maroon boys fell upon "Slim" Sallee's offerings for most of their hits and all of their runs in the first two frames, but Virgil Barnes stemmed the attack and the Giants, with our own "Frankie" Frisch starring, inevitably triumphed, 13-3. Loose playing accounted for our defeat by Tufts, 0-2. but we traveled down to South Field and trimmed Columbia to the tune of 6-0. The hard-hitting Cousi-neau garnered two triples and a double in this contest and McNamara twirled airtight ball, but on the following Wednesday the Blue and White, with one Bliss Price on the mound, visited Fordham Field and retaliated, 6-1. Rain prevented our trying our wares on Villanova and Syracuse, but St. Francis proved an easy victim, 9-0. In this game little "Joie" White, a speed boy, made his debut and showed a specialty for the strike-out route in retiring the batsmen. North Carolina was nosed out, 7-6, but Catholic University triumphed for a second time, 4-2. Then, following Catholic University’s example, we trounced ir-ginia in its return game at our home grounds, 8-2. On May 7th at Fordham we clashed with Boston College. The heavy artillery, Buckley, Marnell and Cousineau fell on Fitzpatrick savagely in the opening frame captain McNamara 171and annexed a brace of tallies; blit the Boston College "jinx' prevailed and the batting of Wilson, coupled with "Jimmy Fitz’s" cool delivery ( which we could not help but admire), won for the Beaneaters, 3-2. C. C'. V. visited ns. to eat out of "Ihid" Culloton’s hand, but "Timmy Mac" lost a hard-luck game to Cornell, 3-0. On May 21st, a bright, "sunshiny" day insured the success of the annual West Point trip. The only incident that might threaten to dampen somewhat the day’s pleasure was the loss of the game to the Cadets. Though the future army officers could not "touch" Culloton’s offerings thereafter, the two runs tallied by them in the opening frame were sufficient to win, since we crossed the plate but once. In many respects this was a see-saw season, for we lost to outfits we should have beaten handily and trounced opponents whose touted reputations made them greatly to he feared. After easily beating Georgetown, 7-2, in the return game at Fordham, a single striking instance of this was furnished. After losing, 3-4, to the ordinary Niagara nine we surprised Lafayette (who had beaten Lehigh, the conquerors of Holy Cross) on Decoration day. with a 7-1 trouncing. "Artie" Devlin sprung a surprise in the diminutive "Joic" White, who allowed but one single and “whiffed" nine of the F.aston boys. Scton Hall bowed a second time, 4-1. but the R. B. W. team, of Portchestcr, took us into camp on their own grounds, 6-1. At Princeton McNamara scalped a second member of the Big Three, 11-5. Just as school closed the team started its annual trip through the North. At Winooski Park, Vt.. St. Michael’s lowered it colors. 4-1 ; then the Vermont and Norwich games were cancelled because of rain. In their place a Sunday contest was scheduled with Middlebury and ended in a 12-inning 1-1 deadlock. Journeying to Boston, we avenged ourselves bv running riot for seven innings over the Boston College outfit until two closing rallies by them made the score look somewhat respectable, 11-8. The following afternoon our 1921 season came to an end with a 7-6 ( 11-inning) defeat at the hands of Harvard, in a game in which fielding, especially the judgment of flies, was rendered difficult by a high wind. The Crimson scored thrice in the opening frame, but could do nothing more with "Big Tim's" offerings until the ninth, when they repeated the dose. In the middle of the contest the Maroon launched an attack that scored five markers in one inning and another in the following, triples by Cousineau (his specialty) and Malloy featuring. Harvard managed to squeeze over the winning run in the 11th and thus ended "Timmy's" opportunity of tucking the "Big Three" under his belt. Nevertheless he acquitted himself noblv and fanned ten of the opponents. Before the boys disbanded for their homes they selected "Tim" McNamara to lead the 1922 team; and if only his captaincy is on a par with his pitching prowess, we know now what to expect from that aggregation. 172s.

AFTER a five-year period of inactivity, during which all athletics were suspended on account of the war, Fordham set out to reassert her prowess k upon the court. The coaching assignment was given to Arthur Devlin, who had so successfully coached the 1919 baseball team. In the face of almost impossible conditions practice was begun, at first uj on the court of the I nity Council, k. of C.. and later at the gymnasium of the Eighth Coast Artillery Armory. The season was started by swamping Pratt Institute by a score of I- Ik and Brooklyn Law and the New York Aggies followed in close succession by 52-17 and 55-22, respectively. Then the Varsity took a slump, losing to the Crescent A. C. (a pardonable defeat). St. Joseph’s, of Philadelphia. Pratt, in their second meeting, and Scton Hall. Then the team staged a comeback and won from St. John’s, of Brooklyn, and from Cathedral in one of the roughest games of the year. This contest carried with it the Catholic Championship of New York. Journeying up to New Haven, the Varsity was forced to bow to the powerful Yale aggregation, but returning it continued its losing streak. The Crescents and Georgetown took its measure. City College also registered a victors over the Maroon. However Fordham recovered its poise and took swift vengeance on Scton Hall, thus evening up the defeat earlier in the season, and sunk Boston College to the tune of 43-28. The season wound up in a blaze of glory, so to speak. Considering the circumstances under which they played, all credit must be given to the team, for the initial step is always the hardest. Bill Finn. Hoctor and Stocker deserve a great deal of praise for their splendid work on the offensive, while to “Bud” Culloton go the honors of defense. We must not neglect to mention that in the Cathedral game. Hoctor hung up what is believed to be a collegiate record for foul shooting when he tossed into the basket twenty out of twenty-one free throws. Future seasons have proved the endeavors of 1920 were not spent amiss. Basketball, 1921 Captain: BERNARD CULLOTON, 23 Manager: MYLES AMEND. '21 Coach: ORSON KINNEY Asst.

HEALEY; Centers McMAHON, GORDON; Guards—CULLOTON, DONOVAN, FALLON, KELLY The season of 1921 opened with a more favorable outlook all around than did its predecessor. The court of the Sixty-ninth Regiment was placed at the disposal of the team, and a great number of candidates appeared. Practice was held daily under the direction of Orson Kinney, the old Yale star, and a brace of weeks found a team on the floor, comparing well with any collegiate combination in the East. Nor were the bright prospects unfulfilled. When in March the 173VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM Hark r«» s Cavanaugh. Corrou (manager), Crowley. Front row Dunn, McMahon, Healy season came to a close. Fordham had chalked up ten victories against six defeats against some opposition calculated to try the worth of any team. Pratt Institute fell first before the onslaught of the Varsity, but the Crescents avenged the Brooklyn lads' defeat by taking our measure, 31-14. Then in a wonderful exhibition of grit and team play. Fordham conquered St. Joseph’s, of Philadelphia, and encountered a see-saw squall when Brooklyn Polytech returned the victors. 'Phis year the Varsity did not journey to Yale in vain. A spirited game found both teams locked at a tie when the final whistle blew. Indeed. Hoctor’s field goal in the last minute and a half of play was all that saved the Maroon. However, in the extra period trusty Johnny Stocker dropped the ball in the basket, and the game ended with Yale on the short end of a 29-27 score. C. C. X. Y. put up a game of the Yale variety, but with more success, conquering our prodigies by 27-23. For the second time in two vears. after losing the opening struggle, Pratt came back and defeated the Varsity. 31-17 ; St. John’s administered the same medicine. Six straight victories, however, soon took away the taste of defeat, for Seton Hall. Villanova (twice). St. Joseph’s College. Oallaudet and Catholic U. all suo- 174cutnbed to our superior attack. The season ended with a glorious victory over Rensselaer at Troy. Trailing behind at the end of the first half, the Maroon rallied physically and morally and left the City of Collars with a 25-20 victory. Immediately after the game "Tommy" Fallon was unanimously elected to captain the 1921-1922 aggregation. Sufficient credit for the showing of the year cannot be given to the men. Under the skillful coaching of kinne and guided so well by their enthusiastic manager, they set up a fine record in which we can easily read a bright career for the future in intercollegiate circles.

MEYERS; Centers McMAHON, GERMAINE. VANDERBACH; Guards HEALEY. RELL . CROWLEY, MrNAMEE Opening her third season of jx st-war basketball, Fordham had more than a bright prospect. Four of the regulars from the preceding year were available and a host of candidates of known ability clamored for admission to the line-up. Besides the wealth of material. "Eddie" Butler, of Cornell fame, was selected as coach by Graduate Manager Frank Gargan. With such an outlook, might she not well smile? The only weakness was in the schedule, and the blame of that can in no way be laid at the manager's feet. Rather was it to his credit, for court practice had already begun in most institutions when basketball was decided upon and he was told to arrange a schedule. Starting with enthusiasm upon a well nigh impossible task. Manager "Yin" Corrou. '22. succeeded in booking eighteen games, among them Yale, the Crescent A. C , Lehigh, Springfield, Lafayette, C. C. N. Y. and others. With this promiscuous, if belated, beginning, the Varsity took the Hour. Unfortunately, the opening game was with one of the strongest of its oppo-nents, and, short on practice, the Varsity trailed City College by a score of 32-24. The second encounter was more favorable, and Fordham took the measure of Cathedral College by a 38-26 score. Following this, Yale fell a victim in a fast, close contest. 26-22. Continuing its winning streak, the Varsity conquered St. Joseph’s in its third consecutive victory over the Philadelphians and St. John's, of Brooklyn, followed in their wake after a game struggle. The scores of these games were 28-23 and 32-31 respectively. The third victim was the Brooklyn College Club, which succumbed to the Varsity, 31 17. At the Capital, Albany Law School followed suit. 28-14. Then came the second defeat of the season when Utica k. of C. team, playing under professional rules the scncond half of the game, emerged from the fray the victors bv 24-18. Returning from their northern invasion, the Varsity encountered the Crescent A. C. five and when the fray was over the Maroon was still bravely dying and the Half Moon had set. Fiercely contested from start to finish, the score swayed from side to side. In the last half, with thirty seconds to play, Lou Hcaly caged a pretty shot from the door and broke the 28-28 deadlock that threatened an extra-period 175game. “Pol" Crowley, substituted for Dunn, played brilliantly and "Ed‘ McMahon, as usual, starred from the center of the door. W hether impressed by the defeat of the Crescents or for what reason at all. the St. John's aggregation that had been beaten before by a single point, easily fell before the Varsity's attack. 27-18. Then the Maroon met the Maroon at Easton. For the first thirty minutes it was anybody's game, but in the last few moments Captain "Tommy" Fallon and "Mickey" Dunn caged field baskets and "Ed" McMahon added a foul goal. Trying to bold this lead, the Varsity was found guilty of four fouls, which were promptly and desperately turned into points by Captain Reeves, of Lafayette, but. try as they could, the Eastonians were unable to pierce the stone defense against them, and the final whistle found Lafayette had met their first home defeat in two years. Score, 25-24. A few days later, minus the services of "Tommy" Fallon and "Jim" Kelly, "our boys" met Cooper I’nion in the Stuyvesant High School "Gym." The tradesmen proved much stronger than anticipated, and only after a grim fight was the Varsity victorious. But all success must have an ending or at least an interruption, and Scton Hall proved the stumbling block. In a rough, loosely played game, the Orangeites limped home with a 24-20 victory and the satisfaction of having out-roughed their opponents and gotten away with it. Rensselaer came along three days later—or rather we invaded the "Arrow" habitat—and the Indian Sign was hung on "our Varsity.” Revenge was sweet for the defeat of a year previous, the Engineers hanging up a 21-10 score on which to celebrate. By this time it seemed only proper that we should do a little celebrating ourselves, so we stepped out one fine night and trimmed St Joseph s, that unfortunate and regular victim. 41-22. Not that St. Joe's is a weak opponent, but that we were a better team. But saint must fight for saint, and though McMahon scored IS of Fordham’s 24 points, St. brands laid us low. Following upon this defeat, came the end of the season, but not in any glory, for both Springfield and Lehigh took our measure, and left only the consolation of a well fought struggle to solace the beaten team. After the last game, "Ed" McMahon was chosen captain by a unanimous vote. His showing throughout the year had been of the highest calibre and was only approximated by the best efforts of "Mickey" Dunn and “Tommy" Fallon. Let it not he called irony if we add the names also of the other members of the team. We cannot end this summary without focusing the spotlight on "Lou" Ilcaly. Three years ago. when the Varsity went down to defeat before St. Joseph’s, he was the hero of the Quakers victory The next season found him at Fordham— and is it any wonder St. Joe’s have not won since? “Lou" has been our consistent performer in all sports, and we are proud to claim him such, brom the Hashing forward of 1921. whose swift co-ordination of eye and hand had decided so mam-contests. he was called upon in 1922 to fill the place left vacant by "Bud" Culloton at guard. How well the strategy worked out we let the records tell. I’nassuming and modest, never failing in a pinch, "Lou" is liked and respected by all—faculty, student and athlete. So basketball has had its season and now we turn to the horsehide. but we cannot but commend our record, and foretell a future which leads to no humble station. 176Track 1921-1922 CaPtoin: RAY WHEARTY, ’22 Manager: HAROLD HORTON, 22 Coach: “JAKE” WEBER Asst.

VARSITY TRACK TEAM JX tlx- northeast corner of our book-lined Reading Room stands a cabinet tilled with silver loving cups, the spoils of races of old. Some day drop into the Library and read the history of other days. Then turn your steps upstairs to the Alumni Rooms and look at the pictures of famous relay quartets staring vacantly from lonely walls. Then you will realize that there exists a story of track exploits which Fordham's sons may proudly boast. While tlie war claimed America’s heart, track was. with other sports, relegated to the background, and as we look back upon those years of conflict, we find Ford-ham without a team. During 1918-1919, Ray Whearty was her sole representative, 177mounting through these seasons, after several spectacular victories. to the honor of a "hack mark" man. In 1920. however. Coach Wefers started his charges over the hills. At an Cortlandt Park they howed to the C. C. X. V. harriers, although Ray hearty led the field home hy almost two hundred yards in the good time of 36:17. Later the tables were turned and Fordhani returned the winner over Brooklyn Poly. Ray again romped away from the field. Still later in the season, running under the colors of the X. Y. A. C. . he won the Junior Metropolitan Two-Mile Championship, was a nu mber of the Senior Metropolitan Four-Mile Championship team and of the Medley team that ran second at the " Nationals." It might be interesting to note that out of over one hundred point-scoring athletes in the Mercury Fool Club, our Ray finished twenty-fifth with a total of thirty-five points. The Fall of 1921 found Fordhani again laboring over the hills. Once more City College took our measure—by one place. As usual. Captain Ray took the lead at the start, never to be headed. He finished almost three hundred yards in the van. in the excellent time of 33:56 for six and one-half miles. The indoor season unveiled among our ranks a number of runners of Metropolitan reputations —Eddie Farrell. George Xolan, A1 Nelson, and besides we had Braue of the Prep, and Hammer. Covven, Woods and others. The season was fairly prosperous. The Mile Relay team finished second to X. Y. L at the games of the Twenty-second Regiment and third at the Mohawk A. C. meet, trailing the Knights of St. Anthony and the St. Christopher Club. At the Morningside games the Varsity ran second to Columbia’s national championship team in a special medley, and at Brooklyn College finished fourth. In a thrilling finish. Ray hearty, running the Inst leg of a medley relay, brought the Maroon in second against the U. of P. and Boston College at the Samaclar festival. The Varsity ran third in the City Championship Mile Relay at the K. of C. games. Journeying to Baltimore, they ran second to Georgetown in a special mile and seven-eighths medley—but Georgetown had broken the world’s record for the distance the week before. At the American Legion meet in Boston, the team failed to place. That same night Ray Wheartv captured second place at the Central High School games in Newark, losing to McLean of Penn’s international four-mile team, in 4:23:3. The indoor season wound tip in glorious fashion, and all the honor centered itself about the same Ray. At the Indoor Intercollegiate Championships lie finished third in the two-mile run. The "Browns" of Cornell, cross-country champions, led him home, but behind trailed Crawford of Lafayette. Haskell of Columbia, and stars from Penn. Harvard. Princeton. Penn State and Dartmouth. While only a humble position and slow time, it is the first time that Fordhani has entered the scoring column of the I. C. A. A. A. A. It was the faithful reward of four years’ unswerving diligence and loyalty. We now look forward with confidence to the Penn Relays. A team has been entered and we anticipate, at this early writing, a victory. Fordhani is on the way upward, and it is up to ourselves, to keep her up—up where she belongs. 178Tennis YKRY afternoon of the past summer found the tennis courts covered with those students who believe in making continued use of facilities which are unexcelled by any in the city. Many of the members of last year’s squad could be observed long after the schedule was completed, practicing their fancy drives and recoveries, intent upon keeping their places on the team, despite the cost. The season of 1922 should bring to Fordham one of the strongest combinations she has yet sent forth in quest of racquet honors. 'I bis is hv no means a boast till prediction, nor does it enlarge on truth; for we find that of last years representatives four of the cleverest are still in the undergraduate ranks. ’’Joe Boylan, "Ed” McMahon, of basketball glory. “Frank” Dillon and "Tom" Keresy stand prepared to prove that their selection as members of last year’s team was in no way an accident. I»ut Frank Walsh and other Freshmen intend to fight for places on the team The Varsity tennis schedule, arranged by Manager “Joe” Boylan, comprises six matches that will put the acid test to the team. Home and home games are assured with C. C. X. V. and X. V. I'., while Stevens will travel to Fordham for a single match. Decoration Day will find the Maroon at Xew Haven, attempting to add tennis to the list of sports in which Fordham has registered victories against the famous Blue teams. As all the colleges represented on the schedule are in the front rank in this sport, they can be depended upon to give us strong opposition. I lie future of tennis at Fordham is clearly in safe hands for, in our Freshman class, besides Frank Walsh, who has already gained recognition in tennis circles as a steady and consistent performer, are many other Prep, school stars who give promise of high future development. The outlook for both teams is indeed bright. We hope that the omens indicating a successful year will be fulfilled. YARSm TEN MS TEAM Boylan manager), Dillon, keresy.

It was to see this game that the trip was conceived and executed by "Joe Boylan. Just after 3 o’clock on Friday afternoon, November 4, the great, white, plush-upholstered. downy-rugged, easy-riding chariot rolled smoothly out through Bathgate Avenue (we wonder why here') into Fordham Road, and the cheer-leading violinist was without a seat. “Joe'' was s. o. 1.; sunny of disposition at all times, he smiled as lie told “Jack" Conway he had done the right thing in letting some one get his seat. Standing up, he made an announcement. All was now well. Perth Amboy, New Jersey—and only 7 o’clock. We were now in another state, so we must eat. Eat we did in New Brunswick. YVe don't know who spotted the restaurant. Put with a hungry whoop, a Hying wedge of forty young enthusiasts burst in upon the evening meal of the swarthy restauranteur and his family. When they had recovered they gave us our egg sandwiches, coffee, cake and pie. Then we were off again, and we gave the eat-shop a fanfare as we passed by. One of the boys chimed in with a cymbal that went hanging over to the store. Well, we "rammed" Rutgers, and as we Hashed through Princeton we “rammed" Princeton. W e cluttered out into the dark and we “rammed" that. Thereafter came the blackest part of the journey. All night long we were reach ing and leaving Philadelphia. Of course, we had to spend the time some way. so we did. Our fiddler and one lovable Junior engaged in wordy combat, got nowhere and appealed to the crowd to join the discussion. They did so heartily. The result resembled a Senior recess period. At last we reached Philadelphia. Once more we ate and as we started got directions. I lere, for the first time, the name Conowingo bent our ear. A bad bridge was there. "Look out for it." W e would, we said, and we were off. Oh. yes, we rammed the L of P. The rosy-fingered dawn found us gliding over the smooth Maryland roads. At about 7:30 we were enjoying the sensation of coasting down a steep hill; a sharp turn was at the bottom and in it a wooden bridge over a creek. Suddenly there was a splintering sound, a feeling as if living through the air. then a settling down—into water! W’e were sinking, but only to our knees. What had happened? W e had plunged through the railing of the bridge. There was a momentary silence, then a scrambling of the uninjured to help the hurt. The driver was picked up, crushed and bleeding, and after a five-day battle for life, he died. Due of our number had his leg broken, his shoulder dislocated—John Concagh. Freshman. Others were cut and bruised. All were shocked and muddied. (If tlu Seniors, I larry Burgess found he had a broken ankle when he stepped off the train at Washington with the group which continued on there. The others escaped easily—“Dick" Deely with a bump on his head. "Ed" McDonald with a lacerated trousers leg and skinned knee, "Joe Bus" with a badly fractured violin. All of the others. “Benny." "Gene Connelly. “Jack" Conway. "Milt" Hayden. “Tom" Ilennessv and "Ray" Kane were unmarked. It seemed miraculous that the results were not more terrible. It was an unhappy ending to a joyous trip.

Thus spake a mighty blacksmith, leaning heavily upon his anvil and chewing complacently upon a cud of Battle-Axe. He was addressing a handsome Knight of the Round Shoulder alxmt whom the poet hath written: "His good line soothes the wrath of men, His tough fist sockcth sure: His strength is as the strength of ten. Because his heart is pure." "That stuff don't go with me. Be a good guy: but this very evening I have a dale at Palm Garden." “Sir Galloway. I cannot fix them shoes.' returned the smith, and then in a confidential tone he added: "Belike thou atlcndest the conferring of Degrees this afternoon?" "If I don't the faculty of the Big V is going to he missing a few members.” "What art thou, a student ?" "Well I hope to tell you I put more lads through college than the Smith Brothers have cough drops." "But milord met bought that all the collegians wore funny clothes." “No, no. only the Finale-: loppers and I fop-aloitgs." “But surely. Sir Ted. thou wilt purchase a four rivet suit for the graduation?" "Nay the bunch at McKinley Square would have my life." '‘But without such raiment thou wilt be out of place like the wedding guest, who had no garment." "Sir Smith, I am a Philosopher and as such, revelation does not interest me." proclaimed the outraged knight and he walked from the smithy. But 'ere he turned the corner where Fordham Road intersects Charing Cross an attractive sign-board bearing the legend "Moe Levy—Good Suits Cheap" met his eye. He approached the inviting ad. Two men were busily engaged with pots of paste and brushes completing the sign. They turned about and cried "Hail Sir Galloway what say?" “As I live tis my old friend Jerry Ford ; and why there’s Howard Bovlnn. What's the big idea?” 185(He GRP7DOmion QFJftQueT‘Knowest thou not that we are in the advertising ganie’ saic 1 u' 1,0 ’v ,u known as Ford. “True enough; how is business at 220 Broadway ? “Wonderful; this very day did we get the contract for the Maroon. “What a wicked line you must have thrown.

They stepped into an Inn. “What’ll it be boys ?” "Give me a malted milk.” this from Jerry Ford. ”1 11 have an Eskimo Die.” piped Sir Boylan. Crash! They looked around. Sir Galloway had fainted. 1 hey revived him as best they could and demanded an explanation. But he could only murmur weakly "Malted Milk—Eskimo Die—Bah! Gimme a glass of root-beer.” When they had finished and taken the air they decided to part. Sir Galloway remarked that lie would see them at the Graduation and that as he had to purchase suitable clothes he would have to hurry away. Whereupon the advertising men climbed into a Detroit Rolls-Rovcc and rattled away, leaving the noble Galloway to pursue his way to Moe Levy's. CHAPTER II In Which the Great LoriI Sir Galloway Pur chase th a Suit “We got some very fine garments. Meester Galloway, tour-riveted herringbone copper-lined chust like deni college hoys wear.” “Lay off that college stuff. I want a man's suit.” “But Meester Galloway it is armor of proof.” For a moment the Knight hesitated; then he demanded “What proof ?" “100 ' “I'll buy” and he proceeded to have a fitting. The Great Galloway had fallen and he left the shop a collegiate of the first water. CHAPTER III In Which the Knights of the Round Shoulder Receive Their Wolfskins from the Pig "lilt was a beautiful day in June. Already the day of the conferring of degrees was at hand and the scribes of the city of London were busily engaged in illuminating the coveted bits of parchment that signified the successful outcome of a four-year struggle with the faculty. Many people had come to witness the event. In fact one knight who claimed 187New London as his birthplace and who was high DeBiasi had hired a special train to bring his relatives and girl friends to the campus. At three bells King Arthur the great sovereign accompanied by his consort Guinivere made his appearance. He was navigating rather unsteadily. His voice was rather harsh and his speech thick. One of his train said to him: “Sire, thou lookest rather pale around the gills; perchance that last shot proved too much for thee.” “Nay." returned the monarch; “I did but correct Psychology and Ethics examinations of my knights and the stuff hath rendered me a bit light-headed. Hath Sir Boylanbroke appeared yet?” Then up spake Manque the chief of the Secret Service. “Sire. Boylanbroke and Sir Thomas Hennessy are conversing with Merlin the Wizard.” "What, there must be treason afoot. If Merlin so much as breathes a word about the Ouija _ - the King paused and bit his lip. ile had almost betrayed the secret marking system. “Oh Guinivere I - _ He turned about to speak to his Queen. She had disappeared. "Sire.” said Manque, “she converseth with thy rival. Sir Dancealot." “Bid her to come hither immediately.” ordered Arthur; and then as an afterthought. “behead that cake-eater Dancealot." Marique scurried away to do the king's will. Over in a corner near the stage which had been erected for the exercises, Guinivere and Dancealot held parley together and spake in this wise. “Dancealot. that husband of mine is a dumb-bell.” “You tell 'em Queen, lie thinks that ()liver Twist is a dance step. "What doth the handsome Dancealot this eventide?” said Guinivere coyly as she applied another coat of rouge to her shellacked features. “Why—er—nothing." stammered Dancealot. “Knowest thou not. sweet boy. that Arthur attendeth the banquet and no one will be in the castle?" Now Dancealot was what is technically known as a parlor cobra and he had never turned down a petting party in his life, so in less time than it takes to tell about it he had cinched the date. Just then Marique sidled up and made known the King’s demands to Guinivere; and together they went away, leaving Dancealot to shift for himself. Promptly at three o’clock the exercises began. All the knights were attired in regulation uniform. Herring pattern was the dominant note in the armor and nearly everyone had a triangular helmet dented in the most approved fashion. Sit Michael Isaacs, who had merely gotten through by the skin of his teeth because his scholastic standing only averaged 99.9 for the four years, was awarded the degree of Bachelor of Arts. As lie clasped the treasured sheepskin to his breast tears of thankfulness welled in his eyes and he gasped “I never thought I’d make it.” Then in rapid succession came Sir Louis Mealy, who was a mighty athlete and the most energetic of the knights. Messircs Howley, Hurley, Kelly and Corror, were awarded the ancient and honorable order of C.B. (Collegiate Boarders). 188So on down the line till they reached the name of Sir 1 heodore Galloway. Applause and cheers rocked the ground. Even members of the faculty were forced to smile. Rut the smile was the tired wan facial contortion of beaten nien- 1 hey had been defeated and they knew when they were licked. Sir Galloway was awarded the degree of 11.S., which in the jargon of the University meant Rest . indent. It took three hours to hand out the various awards. The prize for the best tea-battler, which consisted of a s asim 1 ; SS vrrace Garden and a recipe for home-brew, was given to one incent 1 hea. At the conclusion of the ceremony of presentation, all the Knights rose and sang that inspiring ballad entitled "There'll be a Hot Time in the Old Town I onight. CHAPTER IV In IVhieh Arthur ami the Knights of the Round Shoulder Make .1 ferry at a J east and the Outcome Thereof. The silence that had been maintained in the ante-room to the banquet hall of Max's Busy lice for over an hour was suddenly broken by a crash of glassware and the sound of blows. Rang! Tinkle! tinkle! CRASH! The proprietor of the eating place was tearing his hair in despair. Thirty-five dollars worth of plate glass gone to ----! Why, ( why, did he ever sign the contract presented by the oily Knight who had given his name as Ford. Inside the hall a beautiful free for all was taking place. It had started as follows: The Knights of the Round Shoulder were having their graduation banquet. Under the able direction of Sir George Callahan a magnificent menu had been prepared. The principal courses consisted of I lerring soup (out of courtesy to the collegiate knights), French pastry, Jelly doughnuts and meat balls. W ith a hearty appetite the boarders rolling their sleeves and smacking their lips, fell to the viands which had been spread for them. Over in the corner of the hall a band of musicians imported from Hoboken were discoursing sweet strains from the harpsichord and the lute and the harp. The music was a snappy tune entitled Dardanella. In the midst of the rendition of this classic, one of the entertainers had inadvertently struck a bell on his traps. Then the tun began. The knights mistook the sound for the class hell. Immediately everyone began to pummel his neighbor. Sir Galloway mounted the table and invited any two men in the place to face him. Now it chanced that Sir Galloway had taken a few too many and as a result not a few of the knights who under ordinary circumstances would have feared to face such a champion, bethought themselves that the time was ripe to up and sock him. Then arose one Sir McGuire, whose racket was selling insurance. 189ftnllOWHY fu tnTS"Step out you!" cried Sir Galloway. And McGuire did. But only to be knocked for a row of balloon ascension, lie arose unsteadily, looked around with a bewildered air and said, “Why didn't they wave the red flag before they set off the blast." Then they carried him out to the waiting patrol. When the toastmaster of the evening—a brawny wretch called Sir McDonald and who was known as the Duke of Yorkville—perceived that the guests were enjoying themselves, he rapped on tin- table and set the speakers on them. “Fellow Knights of the Round Shoulder we have fought the good light," he began. “D------right," remarked one of the company as he removed his ear from the platter of meat balls where it had fallen. "On this auspicious occasion." continued the toastmaster, "it gives me great pleasure to introduce the speaker of the evening. His Royal Majesty Arthur, King of England." One bit of applause broke the ominous silence. The King’s smile changed to a black scowl and he began "Brethren of the Round Shoulders I am overjoyed this evening _ _ At this point some one of the playful banqueteers threw an empty "water bottle" at the monarch. But Arthur was diplomatic ami lie laughed half-heartedly and said "yes jest milords—now as 1 was saying---------’ Louder and funnier! "Go into your dance." "Pull in your ears." "Throw him out." The Knights were beginning to realize that they had their king in their power. "That’s tlie guy that flunked me for three years." "I fey there Arthur you big bum step out." These remarks were not relished by the king. In fact, he was thinking of taking it on the loop, lie was interrupted by the head waiter who whispered, "Sire two knaves await an audience with thee." "Tell ’em 1 ain’t got no time." "But, Highness, they have sundry cases with them." "Thai’s different; show them in without delay. "Fellow Knights I pray you excuse me, urgent business calls and I must away." "What are you a wise guy?" said Sir Galloway the Pure as lie curved a knife at the monarch’s wish-bone. "That stuff won't get you anything here, will ii boys?’’ "Xot a thing." roared back the knights as they prepared for the slaughter. Into the room there strode two figures. Diamonds were plentifully sewn on their garments, which were of the latest cut and consisted of four yards of cheese cloth cut in the shape of a tuxedo vest and a silk hat. On their chests gleamed huge silver badges. Sir Thomas Hennessy who had previously refrained from participating in the festivities arose and said "Mr. Toastmaster I rise to a point of order." "A has la societe de debates." cried a few of the knights whose anarchistic tendencies had not been softened by their course in Ethics. “Mr. Toastmaster f move you to answer my point of information." “What is your question?" 191M A R OON • I want to know the meaning of those badges." ••Fool, knowest thou not that these men be royal bootleggers and they have to wear badges lest they sell the stuff one to another?" In the meantime Arthur was holding a consultation with the strangers. “If it’s good stuff I'll take two cases." “Sire, Tis the finest hootch in all the land and rit only to trickle down the royal gullet." "The next speaker of the evening, gentlemen, will he one of the greatest steppers that ever shook it up on a dance floor. Fellow Knights it gives me great pleasure to introduce Sir Dancealot _ _ _ But Dancealot was nowhere to be found. Consternation reigned. Never before had Dancealot been known to miss a meal. Where could he be? Some one suggested that the police be called. “No—not that Jack." cried Arthur, “the Gens D'Armes will be in soon, enough.” Then a happy inspiration came to the monarch. He turned to Merlin and said, "Sir W izard haul out thy crystal ball and tell us where hides the noble Dancealot." Now Merlin had just come in from the Shakespeare Music Hall where he was doing "five a day" and the idea of pulling his act again did not appeal. I fence lie rose and making a low obeisance to the king said, "Sire, thou knowest well that I am a member of the X. V. A. of Great Britain and tis unlawful for me to gaze into the crystal more than the allotted five times | er day. "What are you a wise guy?" Galloway the Bure spoke. "Let me at him." Without further persuasion Merlin who had great respect for the doughty knight brought forth the magic sphere. He made a few mystic passes and muttered "FL’DAF.MONIA" and, mirable dictu. a scene that caused a mighty roar to rise from every throat was disclosed. Dancealot was seen in the parlor of the castle. Guinivere clad in grey hose and burlap suit, bobbed as to the hair and with huge earrings made from condensed milk cans was holding Dancealot’s hands. Dancealot was kissing her with the ease which bespoke long practice. Arthur took one look and called loudly for a drink. He got it. It was synthetic gin. The ingredients were two pails of dynamite dissolved in a pint of potassium cyanide. He drank it without batting an eyelash. erily he was a "Man of Iron." But even Iron Men sometimes corrode. And Arthur proved to be no exception. He staggered and fell. Sir Galloway bent over him with tears in his eyes. "Listen Arthur vou’re not going out on one. are you.' But he was too far gone to answer. At last the fatal day had come. With bis knights grouped about him Arthur was going quicker than the hair on the Hcrpicide advertisement. This was a sad scene for it was the Passing of Arthur. He kicked convulsively, closed his eyes and went out like a light. 19 2MAfi-O ON :T CHAPTER V In Which Is Related the Great Sorrow of Gin,th ere and of the Wake. „ , „ i .1 i- tIipv came clattering up m the patrol. geiitly raised the falifn form of the monarch and Hfte Afle" a'shor ride hey reached .he castle. Every light in the place was out. They knocked at the postern gate. After fifteen minutes the Queen answered. “What do ye wish, minions.'' “Lady. Arthur is out in the wagon. “Drunk again, huh—well bring him in. “But Lady, he ain’t drunk, he’s dead. A change came over her countenance. A dry sob racked her frame. Then she cried “Is he very mussed up? ’ “Not so bad. he makes a fine corpse.” “All right, put him in the ice-box out in the kitchen. I’m busy just now." She sailed away leaving the Gens D’Armes to dispose of the remains of the monarch. The next day they held a wake. All the Knights of the Round Shoulder came for the festivities. In the back room cigars and good cheer were consumed in abundance. Arthur was laid out in the parlor. It was an open secret, however, that this was the first time since his marriage to Gniniverc that he was allowed in there. After the wake was over and the undertaker was about to tack him tin for keeps. Guinivere appeared. The room was hushed as she made her entry. Every one listened with hated breath for the Queen to speak. She did. She strode tin to the funeral director and in a voice thafcould be heard all over the castle she said': “Menial, make that job snappy. |’m late for that date with Dancealot.

STARTLING CHANGE IN RATIO STUDIORUM! New Text Book Introduced Versatile Prof. Commended Students of Senior were given a mild thrill recently when it was announced that the Ethics text-book would lx supplanted by the catalogue. This indicates a radical departure from the famous "Ratio Sturliorum" which has l ccn in vogue for 600 years. The change has been well received inasmuch as the expense of buying books is thereby eliminated. We congratulate the originator on bis pr ogres-sivcncss. But we must add a word of warning. Remember Luther. Many of the old grads, will mourn the passing of the old order : but since it reduces the matter to almost negligible proportions, it will be warmly welcomed by the already overburdened student body.

Through it have come many of the engineering ideas that have made this an electrical America. The story of electrical development begins in the Research Laboratories. Here the ruling spirit is one of knowledge— truth—rather than immediate practical results. In this manner are established new theories—tools for future use—v hich sooner or later find ready application. The great industries that cluster around Niagara Falls, the electrically driven battle ships, the trolley cars and electrified railways that carry millons, the household conveniences that have relieved women of drudgery, the labor-saving electricol tools of factories, all owe their existence, partly at least, to the co-ordinated efforts of the thousands who daily stream through this gateway.

For more than three score years the position of the Steinway Piano has been comparable to such a masterpiece —with this difference: A symphony, a book, a painting, once given to the world, stands forever as it is. But the Steinway, great as it was in Richard Wagner's day, has grown greater still with each generation of the Steinway family. From Wagner, Liszt and Rubinstein down through the years to Paderewski, Rachmaninoff and I lol-mann, the Steinway has come to be “The Instrument of the Immortals” and the instrument of those who love immortal music.
