What doth thou give us. 0 Fate? Garments of hideous lies. ('.rosses to carry and bear. Proud heads to humble in prayer. Grim hours to count and to wait. And wailings to mock on the air— Watch, Father, who lives and who dies. Seek we then alter life's token. Harrowed the way of the path, Strong he our hearts in the quest, And light he our laugh in the jest— Though all that we are may he broken. And Fate shall worry the rest: Spare us, O Father. Thy wrath. 0 Father, who loveth us all. Eternal. Thy sway of the world: Mark then how stainless our shield. Mow burnished the weapon we wield.

McMANUS 2 )T A 't diligent and persevering efforts, "Joe” ranks as one of the most conscientious students in the graduating class. Going out with great distinction from the class of 1917 of Fordham Prep., “Joe" betook himself to St. Andrew's-on-thc-Hudson. where he entered the novitiate of the Society of Jesus, imbued with all the fervor and determination to do his known duty. The demands of health, however, forced him to temporarily forsake this strenuous activitv. At all times a gentleman of the highest calibre, a fine scholar, and an ardent supporter of all Fordham projects. “Joe" i a credit to himself and his Alma Mater. As a member of the college orchestra, “Joe" was an able violinist, sacrificing his precious time and energy whenever the interests of Fordham called for his support. He is not the common type of a mixer, who pats a man on the back and fills him with flattery, but to everyone who earned his friendship lie always proved true blue. It was because of his retiring ways, his frank and straightforward manner, and his absolute sincerity that won for “Joe" the title cf “most eccentric" in the Senior class. “Joe" is really “odd," not in the crude sense of the term, but because he stands out in an exceptional degree. At present, he is devoting a little spare time to the teaching of history in the Prep. But “Joe" has the calling to God s Holy Priesthood, and the class wishes him every Success in all his future undertakings.EDWARD FRANCIS ANDERSON “ :n" mhich pockets" Regis High School INTO our vision swims the picture of a tall, loose-jointed human, upon whose aquiline nose rests a pair of horn-rimmed glasses known to the vulgar as “four years at Harvard,’’ and we know that “Big Ed” Anderson is again in our midst to regale us with his witticisms and his sarcastic utterances on all things modern. An enthusiastic student of English literature is “Ed.” and this strange penchant is reflected in his habitual use of “two dollar words.” Not that “Ed” is given to pedantry or to a vulgar display of his almost unlimited vocabulary; it is only that polished language comes natural to him. and the hoys knowing this lend their approbation. Nature's call can not go unanswered for “Ed and in his spare moments we usually find him enjoying the beauties of Bronx Park. Ih has communicated his enthusiasm along these lines to certain other gentry in the class, and when the weather permits they seek some shady spot in an advantageous locality and there wile away the moments in rapt attention while “Ed” divulges his expert opinion on sundry happenings of the day. At one time a reporter on a prominent metropolitan daily. “Ed” has not put aside his ambition to become a writer of celebrated best-sellers. To this end he has perused nearly all the classics of the English language in an endeavor to acquire a style of his own. Thackeray and Stevenson now seem bosom friends, and when a criticism of any English work of merit is needed. “Ed” is never found wanting. 5  ALBERT MANIA B1GLAN “AL Si. Thomas Prep.

IT took most of us a long time to get to know “Al," partly because self-assertiveness is not in his make-up. and partly because be has not been with us for four years. But when we had made it our business to become better acquainted with the ‘‘silent one we recognized to a man the sterling qualities and all-around good fellowship that have endeared him to each and every one of us. When it s “A1V turn to give a recitation in class we arc all attention, kenna wakes up, Finnegan puts down the newspaper and Boutot comes back to earth. Verily “Alv is a student. “Many a time and oft" have we climbed to Senior Corridor to “A1V’ room the night before an exam or coaxed him down to the Hall in order that we might “get the dope’” for the morrow. One evening session with “Al" and we had the matter “cold." He is hack of everything the class undertakes and always ready to support college activities. Rumor has it that “Al" and “Artie" have entered the Marathon Dance Contest and arc out for the endurance record, but we re still “from Missouii." We do not know what walk of life “Al" intends to follow, but wc do feci that whatever profession it be, “Al" will take bis place, and that place will never be far from the top. Good luck, “Al." and may your ever-ready smile be the “Open Sesame” to the good things of life as it opened the way to the hearts of your friends.§ A I.FRED W.

He retired into seclusion shortly thereafter, leaving the rabble to speculate as to whether he was writing a scathing satire on the manners of budding philosophers or was following in the footsteps of Pepys. In due time the mountain rumbled and ‘’what to our wondering eyes should appear" but the first history of the class of 1923, published in the Mauoo.n of that vear. From thence on “Al" has cast his lot with Heroditus. As an associate editor of the ‘‘Monthly" lie has contributed some of the best historical essays it has ever been out pleasure to read. A pleasing style, a wealth of information, coupled with judicious use of quotations and the ability to depict underlying motives, render his work exceedingly interesting. His knowledge of Spanish civilization and its influence on our continent marks him a scholar of first degree. “Al" is quiet and reticent until vou come to know him. then you find he is voluble enough and with a deep fund l humor that makes him a very agreeable comrade. In fact, his verv name is suggestive of good-will and fellowship. Perhaps the reader will wonder how such a reserved and erudite student should have received such an incongruous nickname? It is the produc t of the fertile brain of a certain round-faced individual who formerly habitated these parts—Al is but one of this unnamed gentleman s mam victims.IT would be a mighty difficult thing to find a man who has done more for Fordham than “Artie.” We remember back in Freshman when everyone on the campus wanted a hockey team it was “Artie” who planned the memorable Ice Carnival which made Hockey possible at Fordham. and it was the same “Artie” who managed the team that in another year won the Intercollegiate Championship. A dislocated shoulder kept him out of Football in ‘21 but he found time enough to coach o ie of the best teams Fordham I’rep ever put on the field. In the Springfield game the following year “Artie" received his big chance and the way he made good is Fordham history. He has been first string Quarterback ever since. But “Artie's” athletic ability is well told elsewhere in this book. W e are interested principally here in the “Artie" of the Campus, Classroom and Corridor. Generous to a fault, he has been the idol and confidant of many a little fellow in the Prep and bis words of wisdom and encouragement have always been appreciated and respected. To those of us whose privilege it has been to know him intimately, “Artie” has been a model of unselfishness and self-sacrifice. Wherever his Alma Mater was concerned it has always been “Fordham first and ‘Artie’ last." We are all looking forward to the Class Banquet and it is a safe bet that the speech making will not have progressed very far before we’ll hear the old familiar cry, “We want Boutot! " =T IJST four short years ago a promising young man left the sheltering halls of Regis High School with a grim determination in his heart to seek fame and J fortune within the hallowed walls of the “Big LV And now, after meeting and conquering the murderous assaults of Latin and Greek, of Psychology and Kthics. and about to receive the coveted sheepskin from the hands of a happy Faculty, he can, like Caesar, send home his "I oni. vidi. vici." To him the most diflicull of theses was duck soup, ns the poet said, and in his bright lexicon of youth there never existed those three gruesome and oft-heard words, “I’m not prepared." To George the attainment of a sawbones’ is the height of his ambitions, and we have no doubt that in a few years, while perusing a newspaper account of an j) accident, we will come upon the following: “File victim was treated by Doctor v Branca to. of Slicem Hospital, who announced that the man bad died almost imme- diately after the fish kicked him. George's scholastic abilities are of such a nature and so outstanding that wherever he goes his record will redound to the credit of bis Alma Mater. To know him now is a pleasure and we feel sure that in a few years the memory that he was a fellow student will be a source of pride.THOMAS I. BRENNAN ‘■tom” Si. Francis Xavier High School.

THE first two years of “Tom's ' life at Fordham were spent among the scientific laboratories delving into the profound secrets of chemistry and physics; and incidentally, as a resident of St. John's Hall. There “Tom learnt all the little tricks that are the stock in trade of any inmate of that justly famed Hall in outwitting the P. of I), in the latter's search for earlv morning entrants. In Junior we behold “Tom among the budding philosophers of the arts department: no longer a dutiful resident student but a care-free day hop. lhe age of enlightenment had dawned!

Rut “Tom” shines on other than academic spheres; as a member of the Prom committee and chairman of the Senior Hop committee, he has proved himself to be a capable organizer. And in the matter of Prom girls and fair partners at the varied social events at which our young scientist is rarel absent, words fail us in describing their charms. Be it known, however, that Tom has always observed a discriminating taste in the matter of social activities. As a frank, loyal comrade and an all-around fellow. “Tom" stands high in the estimate of his classmates. He intends to study medicine and we are sure that as a member of that learned profession, he will advance lar.JOSEPH ANTHONY BIJTLER “red” Regis Higli School Freshman Basketball, O': Varsity Baseball. 1. 2. 3»; Class Baseball, (4 : Class Football, (1. 2. 3, 4»; Council of Debate.

Graduating from Regis in 1918 he sought to enlist, hut being under age and hence not qualified for service he did his hit in a steel mill. For one year he worked in the Carnegie mills at Pittsburg, but in the Fall of 1919 he came back to college and entered Fordham iti the Freshman Class. .Naturally athletic. “Joe” was a member of the Freshman Basketball team and substitute catcher for the subsequent two years on the Varsity Baseball team. Every year found him a member of some class team and it is really in inter cla«s competition that we find his name most frequently. He was one of the most significant figures in the college in regard to inter-class activities during the last four years and undoubtedly has done more to further that cause than any one man. In his studies “Jor” is well to the fore and his marks are usually numbered in the first ten. A great and extensive reader, lie has developed a keen taste for what is fine in the written art and has a splendid critical ability to find what is best in every author. A mathematical trend of mind and persuasive turn of speech have led him to choose the law and so it is with pleasure that we look forward to seeing “Joe'" at the Woolworth Building for the next few years.A WAV back in (be middle ages—Freshman, 1 think ii was—a certain quiet young ZA man sat in the front row, near the door. He never spoke unless addressed, never volunteered an answer, and performed the duties of class beadle efficiently and conscientiously. And that just about summarizes the remainder of “Carp’s’’ career at Fordham. Throughout he has pursued the even tenor of his way. following unerringly the w. k. and elusive "via media.’’ And this was not tin middle course of mediocrity. When it came to honor lists, you could always find “Carp" among the top ten, feeling quite at home in that exclusive company. “Carp,” be it known, is a southpaw. When, as freshmen, we heard that the “varsity” had begun baseball practice, it was rumored that a freshman portsider was making a strong bid for a regular berth on the team. Yes—you’ve guessed it. It was “Carp." But. whether bis retiring nature abhorred the adulation of his classmates, or for some equally grave reason, his disappearance from the diamond was as abrupt and unheralded as his arrival. And during his remaining three years he has religiously shunned the athletic limelight. In our four years at Fordham, we have met no one more readily likeable than “Carp.” For all-round cheerfulness, generosity and agreeability he is the best fellow we ever expect or care to find.MICHAEL JAMES CAS FA "mike” Kordluim Prep. ' "IV TIKI." CASEY ought to be a great scholar. Ever since the beginning of his IV 1 Freshman year, he has been a constant worker in the University Library, in daily association with all the great minds of history. From the very association he could not but absorb some of their habits of clear thinking and effective expression. And. though lie has never evinced any great literary activity, no one will deny that his ability is merely dormant, and may at any moment rise to mark him as another genius of literature. Because throughout his four years here “Mike" has so unreservedly devoted his time t his work among the librarv shelves, he has found little opportunity for other activities. True, during his Junior year he was a member of the Harvester (dub, that organization of social lions which since its birth has set the pace for the metropolitan colleges. However, this descent from the dignified temple of learning to the tea-table proved only temporary, and he redeemed himself in Senior by becoming a member of the Ethical Club, where lie has displayed his customary brilliance. For “Mike" we can wish and prophesy onlv the best. He is capably fitted for the tussle of life, and hi , success, though it may not be immediate, is certain.WHEN the 8:02 from Ininglon rattles into the Ringsbridge Station of the New York Central, a very collegiate young chap jumps to the platform and hastens towards the vicinity of Fordham Koad and Webster Avenue. I his chap is none other than the inimitable “Hill" Casey whose half tone you have just gazed upon. We were impressed at our first meeting with “Hill" that he was destined to he the Mayor of Irvington. But alas—we were sadly mislead—the town that Washington Irving made famous has no mayor! '“Bill ' deplores greatly the fact that Irvington has won its fame and distinction solely through the medium of the pen. He firmly believes his home town should be an extensive commercial center. In fact he has but recently begun a decided revolutionary movement to make it such. es. “Bill's” great secret has at last leaked out. He is a student at Fordham's School of Commerce in the heart of New York's great business district! And let us say right here and now that any man who, alter two or three hours of psychology and ethics, can spend the rest ol the day in the School of Commerce is simply bound to succeed. The future of Irvington is sealed! Baseball is “Bill's" favorite sport and topic of conversation and during the season “Bill” is on the diamond, capering like a real “pro.” He can tell you more about baseball than John McGraw could. Baseball is about the only subject that will detract his mind from thoughts of his beloved Irvington.CATHEDRAL PREP has sent a worthy representative t » Ford ham in the person of “Pete" Corcoran. He lias paved hi ivay to a successful completion of his college course aftei foui hard years of diligent work. Always forging ahead, not in rapid phenomenal strides, hut slowly yet surely, like the tortoise, he has built up a character, most essential for progress in the legal business and capable ot withstanding the numerous attacks to which all honest men are sooner or later subjected. “Pete" has on numerous occasions dismissed the gloom of a drowsy classroom In his ever-ready Irish wit. ‘ Pete's” ambition is to substitute sunshine, whenever possible, for rain- to dispense happiness rather than sorrow by a cheerful smile during stiff exams Manv a pessimist has been labeled an “A. k." I our hero because he insisted upon “always kicking” over some trifle or other. “Pete” is a pianist of exceptional uhililv and his love for music is probably the reason for his jovial disposition. At I oidham's social functions, we find him the gallant courtier, while at athletic contests he is the loval Fordhamitc. In the classrocm. ‘ Pete" is a diligent scholar and so in business, ho is sure to reap the benefits of his persevering habits moulded at Fordham. To friend “Pete” we give expression to this hope: "May you go through life as a source of comfort and joy to your associates, may all the happiness that comes from helping a dow ncast fellow man he yours and may wo meet again to share the happy memory of time well spent under the sheltering guidance of our Alma Mater." i I BERNARD A.

Unless you know “Bud" you may not be able to realize the reason for this distinction. Once you do know him, however, you will appreciate the alert mind, the likeable disposition, and the quality of leadership which lie behind the quiet exterior.

In baseball, he was one of the mainstays of the pitching stall during Freshman and Sophomore, and for two years he has coached the Freshman nine.

But in spite of this apparent handicap, he has made his mark at Fordham. “Jack” is a journalist of real ability.

As stage manager for the past two years he has developed a degree of efficiency in his crew equal to that in any of the downtown theatres. While he has had charge of the stage and scenic arrangements no untoward accidents have occurred to mar the smoothness of the many plays that have been produced in the college auditorium and though playing a hidden part and one that receives no share ol the applause still his work contributed in great part to the numerous stage success of the “Mimes and Mummers” and is certainly deserving of the highest commendation. "Bill's” aspirations also lay in another direction, however, and after serving a year's apprenticeship as assistant manager of the track team he was given the task of arranging the schedule this year. The successes of the Fordham entries in the different track meets is known to all. hut that which redounds most to ‘'Bill's” credit is the part he played in reviving the Fordham Diamond Meet held this year at the Twenty-second Regiment Armory. Previous to the Meet. "Bill” worked unceasingly in completing the arrangements and his tireless efforts did much to insure one of the outstanding meets of the season. As a side-line "Bill” is the University Circulation Manager of The Kan:, so that anyone may see that the statement we made in the beginning is not without foundation. When Fordham loses “Bill” she is certain to find it most difficult to replace him. . ks1 Ml SIC hath charms,” says the poet. And right he is, if we may judge by the abilities of Fort Ed's famous fiddler, ‘‘Joe Del." For four years he has carried out the admonition to “say it with music" with a vengeance and assailed the ears of his friends with the syncopated harmonies for which he is famous. Every September “Joe' arrives at I’ordhani with a fresh supply of humorous expressions. These are put to prompt and frequent use during the rest of the year. Such is their variety, however, that they seldom become bromidie. Every occasion finds “Joe" ready with some pun or “wise crack," and this ability, needless to say, has done much to make him recognized as the most optimistic of that class of optimists—“1923." An earnest and energetic student, always in the “honorable mention" class. “Joe still finds time to devote to athletics. His hobby is basketball. The fact that he has been always a member of the class team, as well as for two years assistant manager ol the “Varsity" proves that his ability is known and appreciated. Then, too. we must not forget his ability as a parlor athlete. It were not wise to sa too much concerning his accomplishments in this line, but—take it from us—they are many and diverse. I he h«-st that we can wish “Joe is that he ma go on through life w ith the same characteristic cheerfulness which has marked his career at Fordham.. A HERE seem to be men ivlio were created that the fountains of their humor might freshen the dry satire of tin cynic and the vaccine of their infectious laughter render innocuous the germ of gloom. To such a category belongs ‘‘Jack.'’ We do not mean to intimate that he is a king's jester type, but that lie has the gift Mark Twain possessed of sensing tin ridiculous in the commonplace. As Lditor-in-Chief of The Ram for two years, commencing with its revival in 1921. Jack has labored assiduously; sacrificing his Sunday afternoons in order that the paper might go to press on time. The prestige of The Ram and its success as a newspaper reflecting student opinion is due to the persevering efforts and trenchant pen of its editor. On the tablet of Fordham’s noted editors “Jack’s" name stands out in one point pica. In spite of his ability and experience as a journalist, however, we are not so sure of his joining the metropolitan chapter of the fourth fstale. Those who sal next to “Jack" in class claim that he has more natural talent for sketching and cartooning. They expect to see a series of pen and ink portraits published in the near future entitled “Famous Men I Have Known at Fordham in Familiar Poses." We incline to »he view that “Jack" was merely following out to the letter Father Mahony’s fifth rule for study, “Study with a pen in your hand." W hatever his career may be and long after his best editorial has been forgotten we shall still remember “Jack's” irresistable smile and hear the chuckle of his contagious laughter.vwT R.WK" DILLON'S good looking face and infectious laugh are known every-where at Fordham. He was born in New York and attended Regis High School. Graduating with honors in 1919. he began his college career with our class in its Freshman year. That year he played on the Freshman Tennis Team and joined the Debating Society. In his Junior year he made the Varsity Tennis Team and with two other regulars forms the nucleus of this year's array of fly swatters. He is six feet tall and weighs about one hundred and sixty pounds. His blue eyes and high color make him quite a mark for feminine archery but a rather fastidious taste has left him thus far unscathed. A penchant for golt is Ins one besetting sin unless, of course, you wish to include Reubens sandwiches. Camping experience i necessan to a happy life nowadays, lie claims, and has proceeded to prepare for future trials In spending his summers on Lake George and placing his trust for protection from the elements in a tent. 01 his future plans we know nothing but the fact that lie has expressed a desire to go to California to li e. As to the particular spot in the “Sunset State where “frank intends to spend his after years we believe il would be an imposition to say — but somehow we think it’s Hollywood. vHIDDEN ill the wilds of darkest Westchester lies the home of our fearless here . Fearless, we say. because he dared to break the bonds that primitive locality had placed upon him and to come to Fordham, where men are men and not rational animals. But he does not regret this step, rather he boasts of it. for he has learned to love his “Alma Mater" with an undying affection. How often have we heard him say: “My only regret is that the A. U. Course is hut four years long." And greater love than this hath no man. To some, because of his natural reticence, the '‘Senator seems bashful, but those who know him well realize that it is only another case of “still water running deep. A humorist at heart, he cherishes a deep and usually unsuspected fund of bon mots that are calculated to make the unwary listener double up in laughter. The serious demeanor lie can maintain after getting oil a most telling sally ol wit is surprising and only serves to add to the mirth of the bystanders. Needless to say he is always most welcome when the hoys gather round the convivial hoard in Stelling's, and the discussion of anything and everything waxes hot and heavv. An extempo-raneous debate between “Jim,” who is a Free-Stater. and Bob Mahoney, an ardent Republican, is an occasion that should not he missed. A loyal friend, a pleasant companion, the memory of “Jim” Doris will live long in the hearts of those who know him best. .A . ’T’ T' T HEN “Pete" came to Fordbam lie was quite bulky in size—or better, just VV chubby. His displacement was about 200 pounds which projected in all directions and made him pleasingly plump. A smile as big as his body adorned his rosy face and has never left it. “Pete” assumes an attitude of “as it comes so shall it go,” towards all scholastic difficulties. Nothing seems to dull his jovial disposition and this quality makes “Pete” a welcome visitor among the boys when their hearts are weighted with sorrows and fears. He is always happy and ready to provoke the laughter of his classmates with his witty, yet seldom personal, remarks. ’’Pete's" social life is quite extensive. He “goes big" in the parlor and in the ballroom for he surely is a sheik with the fair sex. During the last two years “Pete" has rid himself of much of his excess sell and has now acquired the slender, tall, debonair appearance of the “lady’s own." Hence his position of sheik. Whenever “Pete” meets a fair one he strides along with his head in the air and passes nonchalantly on, totally unheeding the remarks of “alia boy, Pelie." coming from his encouraging and well-wishing friends. Now that “Pete” is about to leave us we are heavy at heart for we shall surely miss his “wise ones." But however slow he may be in his external movements, he is ambitious and we certainly look to “Pete" to attain great heights in his light with the trials and tribulations of the cruel world. L-nI  BOVE, you behold the features of a typical ea Englander—John Aloysios -A Dunlin. Our John, be it known, hails from North Adams, Mass. (‘‘Beauty unsurpassed—at the foot of the Mohawk I rail—tin gateway to Cod s country —bright, breezy, bellicose and hustling.”! Jack began his collegiate career as a soldier-student at Catholic I . In that now famous organization, the S. A. T. he went through the war guarding the Capital and Trinity, where, ‘tis said, he won many a decisive battle. “Jack’s” hobbv is week-ends. Every now and then the falling shades of a Friday night find him headed Manhattanward, bis destination known only to himself. Sunday night brings him back again, as smugly mysterious as ever. 1 his little game of his has been the subject of much speculation on the part of more than one innocent bystander. As one expressed it. “When a fellow goes to Brooklyn and comes back with a Paterson paper in his pocket, has he been to Brooklyn or to Newark?" “Jack's” claim to fame has another angle. It was under his able tutelage that “Tim” McNamara attained the athletic prowess that has since obtained for him a place in the “big leagues." It was from “Jack" that “Tim" learned the gentle art cf “getting them past the batter." And everyone who knows “Jack" also knows his ability—judiciously used, of course—to “put it over on the other fellow." And. even if you happen to be the “other fellow.” you feel no chagrin, for “Jack” is the sort of fellow you can always remember with a smile. WILLIAM H. FINN EGA X ‘bill" "hack” Fordham Prep.

MakOOV BILL HftXFGAN is one of the most populai men in the Class and one of the best liked in the whole College. His broad shoulders and stocky legs mark him for an athlete and all through his college career he has lived the promise of his physique. An unfortunate accident to his leg in Freshman year ended then and there any chance lie might have for Varsity activity, hut in inter-class and Freshman athletics he was always a prominent ligure. He started at Fordham College in 1919 and joined the Class of '2'S as a Freshman. He was an old Fordhamite. however, having taken his four years preparatory work at Fordham Prep. That year he was president 1 the Freshman Athletic Association and played on both baseball and basketball teams. From then on we find his name linked with almost every inter-class activity there was. In his Junior year he was Class President and a member of the Prom Committee and it is generally admitted the class had one of its most successful years with “Hill " as President. Ethically speaking, “Hill" is not only a social being, he is also a sociable being; for we find him at all the dances and not infrequently at games with one of the opposite sex. Well, we don't wonder. Good locking, well dressed masculinity never went long unaccompanied. A et we have it on good authority that hi? favorite companions are still his cap and pipe.IN Freshman, the class, while declining latin adjectives, recited fortunati, for-tunatae, fortunata and "Mike" answered "present." This was the manner in which "Mike" introduced himself to us. He has been longer at Fordham, however, than any member of the Class of 1923, having been a student in Fordham Grammar, Prep and the College. "Mike" has often been styled "one of the best fellows in Fordham," and he surely is. He is a true friend of the fellows and a loyal Fordham rooter. Daily, after class, Mike holds a meeting of his gang in Stelling’s and always calls the roll: “John. Jack. Mike, Al. Sal. Bill. Ed and Bob." When finished he says, “all here, boys, let’s go,” and the meeting is on. When their scholastic difficulties are proposed or a dispute arises about the various Fordham teams. “Mike,” like the great Mussolini, rules with an iron hand and settles the difficulties to the satisfaction of all. Mike owns a baby Fiat which has been seen at every out-of-town game a Fordham team plays. Though only built to carry four passengers, six and seven have often been its occupants. Many amusing stories could be told about “Mike" and his Fiat, but space will not permit it. However, think of a small car with six rain-soaked occupants returning from a football game and lost in the Jersey Meadows on a cold, stormy night, and you will have a slight conception of some of “Mike’s” adventurous trips. v sJT T 7 HKN the Recording Angel shall read off the names of those who. while on V earth, w ielded a wicked vocabulary, we know that like “Abou Ben Adam. “Sal's” name will lead all the rest. “SalV greatest accomplishment or failing. according to the way you look at it. is the ease with which the “ten dollar” words roll off his tongue. As soon as the first few “jaw-breakers' have passed into the great open spaces, the boys sit back, well knowing that they are in for a harangue that would make the shade of Daniel Webster turn green with envy. Since “Sal" intends to make the Law School his address during the coming three years, we feel certain that once he has been admitted to the bar. his fame will spread far and wide. Judging from past experience, “Sal” should be able to convince the most astute judge that black is white or that wood alcohol is no more harmful than Coca-Cola. Another of “Sal's” invaluable accomplishments is his well known ability to trip the light fantastic. He is in his element on a dance floor and the customers are always sure to be treated to several startling innovations in the terpsichorean art. An inveterate traveler. “Sal” has a great weakness for the scenery found on Staten Island. But then, to use his own words, “That's a man's prerogative. But all in all “Sal” is one of the hist, a fellow that anyone would be proud to call friend, and we doubt if there can be any higher praise than that.OR four long years, through tin- snows of winter and the heat of summer “Frank wends his weary way to and from Fordham; and any man that commutes from Jersey, as our noble friend does, is bound to succeed. “Frank” is an accomplished English student, and many gems of poetry and prose can be attributed to his efforts. As a proficient student of the advanced sciences, he is tending toward the medical profession, where his sound judgment and profound natural ability will find a vast field for exploitation in the interests of humanity. "Frank has imbued in his spirit the oratory that flows from St. Peter's Prep., whence he hails. Always convincing in argument, intermingling an occasional bit of humor, our worthy classmate may some day become a clever Jersey politician. In his Buick. we are led to believe he cuts quite a figure among the fair sex on the gay Boulevard. He is a musician and lover of song and dance. Consequently, his demand in social circles is great, and his popularity ever increasing, “frank" is a patron of outdoor sports and one of Ford ham’s most ardent supporters. Blessed with keen ability and a most pleasing personality, “Frank" is sure to be a success. Our only hope is this: “May he be as he always has been, a credit to himself. his friends and bis Alma Mater.” Doctor Gannon of New Jersey will carry Fordham’s fair honor into fields afar and to the towering heights of glory.V T11H the hallowed kiss of Alma Mater fresh on our brows and our hard-' '' earned sheep-skins still wet with the engraver’s ink the men of ’23 shall face the world. The maelstrom of big business will swallow some, the professions others, but to one at least a more portentous destiny beckons. For on the day after Commencement a slow, white steamer shall bear “Charlie" Gravina up the river. “To a higher institution?” you ask. Indeed not. for “Charlie” shall be merely on his way to his Summer camping ground on Bear Mountain. Besides being a lover of the great out-of-doors our classmate is also an accomplished musician. In this capacity he has played in the orchestra and supplied the accompaniment for the May devotions. But he can also appreciate the music of others and experience tells us that melody of a fox-trot has as much attraction for his feet as that of the classics has for his heart. Though inclined to no flash-in-thc-pan brilliance in the classroom. “Charlie's" seriousness and intelligence have insured for him an excellent scholastic record. His C philosophy is practical, and as a means of getting at fundamentals he prefers a good hot argument to a dozen textbooks. All these qualities are moulded into an ideal whole by a delicate sense of humor. All in all. “Charlie" is a fellow whom we are certainly glad to have met; a friend, a companion, and a cheerful comrade for a long journey. Good luck to you, “Charlie.  JOHN F. GRIFFIN, AM.

And when hr does talk, it is because he has some-thing worth while to say: and invariably, his audience sit up and listen. Jack's strong interest is athletics. He stalled his career in Fordhani as manager of the Freshman baseball team, whose record, as the class historian put it. ‘‘is still a topic of sporting conversation on the campus and will continue so for some time to come." Certainly the team's success was due in large measure to the earnest, capable endeavors of its manager. Rut “Jack's” interest in athletics was bv no means confined to his Freshman baseball team. During his four years at Fordhani. he lias been present at every game—a most loyal and eager fan. And in point of information as to records of the individual teams, we are certain that “Jack" has got all the knowledge stored somewhere in the back of his head. Ask him some statistical question as to baseball or football—and we venture to suggest that in nine cases out of ten, he will come through with the correct answer. In Sophomore, “Jack" turned his attention to music, and became a member of the Glee Club. In Junior, we find him working industriously for the Junior Prom as a member of the Patron Committee. “Jack's qualities of loyalty to Alma Mater and his earnest, energetic capabilities will lead him lar on the road to success in the line of business which In- intends to pursue.WALTER F.

With these words the evening broadcasting of “Bedtime Stories by "WAL "signs off for the night. It lias become a traditional custom for the boys to gather each evening before retiring to their hectic dreams, at the bedside of "Wal and barken with keen, breathless absorption as he carries them far afield over the colorful realms of fancy, fact and adverture. And. oh, what stories they are! The tales of De Maupassant and Dumas in all their glory were not arrayed as one of these! The class voted him ‘‘Best Line,” but that puts it rather mildly—Shakespeare and Chaucer had “good lines” but you’d hardly call it that. When we first knew “Wal” lie was a pretty quiet sort of a chap with a horrible penchant for the books. He’s never lost the leaning towards his scholastic work, but lie's not so quiet now. In fact, he sprang into the limelight this year as the leader of a triumvirate composed of bis two room-mates and himself. The three injected “considerable upheaval” among the more sedentary inmates of the Hall, and oft was some philosophical reverie disturbed by the crash of furniture and the bowl of battle. As Captain of the “ 1 2.'» football team. “Wal” displayed a keen knowledge of the game, a spirited gameness and splendid type of sportsmanship. It is only characteristic to say that as our star end “he always got his man.” We imagine “Wal” will return to the city of art and breweries and absorb in the course of his davs much of the fine —, no, art, of which Cinciimali-of-the-many-hills so proudly boasts.ALBERT G. HALBERSTADT “al” Fordham Prep. uT JOl know me—‘Al l “Yes, hop in. And the new arrival joins a party of V eight or nine in “AIV’ National. In a moment’s time they're speeding along the Concourse or Pelham Parkway. Bang! then a hissing sound. “Al” brings the car to a stop and climbs out. After a brief survey of the four wheels he announces “A flat—all out.” Whereupon, one of the motley colored collegians will reply. “Oh. we re comfortabe enough here!” “All out, I said!” and slowly but with certainty each one steps on terra firm a and finds himself a comfortable resting place while “Ah’ struggles with the wheels and tires, vainly begging for assistance. Such is one phase of “Al's” life. “AI” is quite Collegiate. His ary-colored Brooksy suits, his dizzily-striped ties, and irreparably crushed hat, have placed “Al” in that peculiar class. “Al” is a social idol and kind of beau ideal of Fordham men, at home in the banquet hall, ballroom and particularly the parlor. He has never missed a social function at Fordham, each of which proved him to he poorly acquainted with military technique, for the ladies readily surround and (lank him on the right and left. “Al” is a good fellow with a pleasing character and jovial disposition. He has won the friendship of his class-mates, which we hope will never be dimmed. Good luck, “Al,” and may our happy days together be a source of pleasant reminiscences for von.IF you would meel a fellow on whose head the serious things of life rest lightly, then step frrward, dear reader, and shake with “Larry" Hall. Red-haired and boyish-looking, this son of Yorkville confined himself for two years to the classic walls of Brooklyn College. Entering Fordham in Junior, he was destined for immediate honors. For in a drawing for conceit tickets Father Mahonv designated him. because of his youthful guilelcssncss, official picker of winning names. But “Larrv" has more than this in his favor; he has that curious inquisitiveness that has ever characterized those who drink deeply at the fountain of knowledge. Following this trait he added Biology to his Senior burdens, just to see whether he had any latent aptitudes for the Medical Profession. Those doubtful of his Biological learning would do well to sit at lunch with him while In- discourses minutely on the embalming and dissection of rabbits or frogs. Outside of school our man is a keen follower of all forms of athletics. Besides this he is no stranger to the dance. This phase of his collegiate training has taught him to pilot his partner with skillful dexterity through the most treacherous sea of flappers and philosophers. As yet no one has heard to what profession “Larry’ will lend his services, for he seems to he forming his decision by a slow process of elimination. But he it what it mav. there can he no fear for the success of this youngster, tor his happy disposition and sunny good nature is sure to carry him through. a I i v 2 2MICHAEL AUGUSTINE HAYES “mikf.” Class Baseball 1»: Cluss Baskelbull. 1 ; Class Football.

PROMPTLY at 8:50 every morning there appears at the door of Senior classroom a tall, handsome individual, who, having delivered the crvptic salutation. “Wasuchster, to such of his class mates as are present at that early hour, joins in the discussion of the latest ethical or economic problem. This, gentlemen, is none other than “Mike” Hayes, who daily journeys to Fordham from the wilds of distant Tremont. When the war ended—and of course he was “among those present’’—“Mike’’ came to Fordham—as a resident. However, after two vears in the cloistered atmosphere of old Rose Hill, he felt the call of the wild too strong for him. and during the remaining two years of his college life he spent only the morning and a portion of the afternoon with us. his evenings being otherwise occupied. Concerning his pursuits during this latter period of the day, prudence constrains us to silence. Every spring has found “Mike” out with the baseball team, and during his last two years he has held down a regular berth at first base. “Mike” has at least two of the qualities which spell success—brains and optimism. Concerning the latter nothing need be said. His ready smile and keen sense of humor are familiar to all who are fortunate enough to know him. I hat In has brains is evinced by the tact that “Mike has never had to exert himselt to keep close to the leaders in any branch of study. Without a doubt “Mike’s future will he a credit both to himself and to Fordham.t f A HE life of a commuter is indeed a hard one; and the vagaries and trials of I the every day journey from Westchester County to Fordham have shown their effects on “Dick” Hendrick. By the time “Dick" reaches class in the morning he seems to have lost all the vitality and energy which the Professor of Kthics insists is so necessary in order to adequately grasp the dictates of ‘"Bight Reason." But it takes far more exciting events to disturb the equilibrium of “Dick's" life or the urbane nature of his smile than a mere exam, or quiz in Kthics or Psychology, necessary evils, and as such, necessary, though not disturbing. Perhaps it is that the fast little city of New Rochelle from where “Dick" hails, is so full of life's stirring moments that the regular routine of an academic existence is rather a bore. But those of us who have seen him in action, know that he does possess a large amount of pep and energy and endurance, as shown on the ice rink or the basketball court, and in the waters of Long Island Sound: the first to try their chilling depths in the spring, the last to leave them in the autumn. Certainly it has been a pleasure to have known and associated with “Dick" Hendrick, with his easy going ways and ever ready smile; and we art sure that those bright flashes of scholarship with which he has occasionally surprised the class, are indications of future success when “Dick" tries his luck in the business world. r HE of the ever-present brief-case and the smoky black dudeen is pictured above. Yet no mere facial representation can et before u that extensive contour and portly figure which comprise Brother Hines. And as his frame is so also is the heart beneath, loo big for meanness, lovable, unselfish, ready to absorb a pointed joke or to match it with a better one, the charm of his good nature is unique. But again, how could his fascination fail when ever phrase that falls from his lips is chosen from his own inimitable store with the finesse of a connoisseur? However, it would be a grievous failing to overlook the artistic side of our classmate. A choirister of note, and a soloist, the rich melody of his voice is matched only by its immense volume. An adept pianist besides, he can improvise and improve on the choicest harmonies of Wagner and Liszt. In addition, he can shake the festive foot with agility and grace. Verily the Muses have one faithful client. “Ambition ' you will say, “is made of sterner stuff.” But no! we mean only to show the diversity of “Artie's" talents. Insurance companies have claimed him, journalism, and even our School of Law. Essentially a man of business, his activity and energy have already secured him a substantial start in his chosen profession. Law. So now. “Artie,” while we shake your hand in farewell, we can truly say, “If ungrudging service and the voice with the smile till win. then ‘Artie here's looking at you.”i CHRISTOPHER W.

Ethical Club. sA” y AOM" HOW LEY’S intimate acquaintance with the Professor of Physics has loti}; been a matter of deep mystery to the class. Those "‘in the know” have assured us that the truth of the matter lies in the fact that the Reverend Professor and “Tom” have certain mutual friends; and these friends, the knowing ones will add in a whisper, arc of the fair and gentle sex. Be that as it may, however. “Tom’s” progress through Physics was one continued series of opportunities of displaying his knowledge and lack of knowledge before the class-—“Isn't that true, Doctor How ley?” was the usual mode of greeting; and invariably came tin answer. “Yes. l ather.” “Tom never disagreed. As to the fair mutual friends who are said to be at the basis of that inspiring intimacy, we con neither affirm nor deny; transeat. we will let it go at that. But we do know that “Tom” has escorted some very fair young lady friends to the many social events that he has graced with his presence. “Tom’s” happy disposition and genial good nature have won him a host of friends during his four years at Fordham. Somehow, we can not he with him for any length of time without catching the infectious nature of his mirth. “Tom” has spent many serious hours of work in chemistry and biology; for his ambition is to join the ranks of the medical profession. Certainly, w' h his bright spirit of optimism prevailing as it lias prevailed among ns at Fordham, his task, however difficult, will always flash forth its silver lining for “Tom” Howlev.  J AKIFT is llie spice of life -to quote from a wise old adage; and “John" KellsMurphy is one of those who profit by its worth. For in his career at Fordhain, John has successively been a day student, a boarder, and finally a day student again. In Freshman we knew him as one of the unfortunate youths who hailed from the far distant borough of Brooklyn. Dissatisfied, however, with the more or less uncertain habits of a dav-hop and desirous of availing himself of the advantages of living within the shadow of the halls of learning. John enrolled as a resident student in Sophomore. For two years. then, he graced tin portals of $t. John's Hall. Finally, in Senior, we beheld him once more in the ranks of the day-hops; surely "Murph" has enjoyed a varied existence. John is a well set-up youth and his physical ability enabled him to don the moleskins as a member of the class football team. Handball, howexer, is Ins forte; often during bis course at Fordhain have we seen him engaged in his favorite exercise on the courts in the rear of St. John's Hall. He is an adept at the game. In academic spheres, John is an excellent French scholar; he was one of the -liining lights of liis French class in Freshman days. John i prone to take the ups and downs of life as they come. And this spirit of meeting life’s problems with equanimity is an asset that will stand in his favor in whatever line of endeavor he intends to take up. CIIAKLES F. KENNA "chaklie” Fordham Prep.

Has someone down in the Hall been raising particular “Caine”? Find Kenna!! There is little that goes on in or outside of Class that “Charlie" has not had something or other to do with it. To “Charlie” more than to any other individual is due the credit for the rebirth of the Fordham Ram. In those first few weeks of trial he was Business Manager, Associate Editor. Treasurer and newsboy for that illustrious publication. Once we saw him in the role of Thespian in a suit of green. And such a green! We forget the part he played, but we’ll never forget the suit. Out on the field “Charlie Cheer” is quite able to put some of the fight into the players and spectators alike that made him a three-letter man in Prep. Nor has he been content to let his athletic ability lie dormant. For one thing, he established a university broad-jump record last year that is likely to stand for some time to come. All in all, “Charlie” is the most likeable chap we’ve ever met: the hardest to get awake and keep awake when he’s tired I Which is any time before noon I. and the only real rival of Rodolf Yasclineo.CEOKGE A.

In 1921 George was a member of the Fordham Debating team which so ably defeated the representatives of the I Diversity of Pennsylvania on the then prominent Smith-Tow ner bill, which never passed out of the Congressional committee. The following year he traveled to Boston, where the Fordham team, after a wonderful display of oratorical talent, lost the decision. During these same two years. George was a member of the Fordham lecture groups which toured New ’t ork and iV w Jersey and met v i111 the approbation of large audiences throughout both states.

Pour years on the tennis team, twice captain, and two years as a hockey star during the brief but glorious sojourn of that sport at Fordham. He is an orator of remarkable facility and yet he scorns the study of law—that popular refuge of scholastic demagogues. In fact, his plans for the future, like all his plans, are rather secretive. However, we would suggest the diplomatic field— personally, if we had his “line" and “presence" minus his ideals and appreciation of Ethical standards, we'd go in for oil stock.

His Thespian activities he abandoned on coming to lordham; but not entirely, as anyone who lias witnessed him about a practical joke can testify. "Tom" entered Fordham in the Tall of 1919 and that year was manager of the Freshman Tennis Team. Before the year was over he had managed to acquire a pair of tortoise-shell rim glasses.

Did you ever see the fellow who followed the advice of the Prof, and obtained a "good foundation in high school" so the college matter would he “easy”? No? Well look at ’ini! Being “student extraordinary” is only one of icV accomplishments. He is a debater of quite proficient ability and has represented the Varsity at numerous important intercollegiate debates; besides this he has carried the “good words of A wisdom and the dictates of right reason" into the wilds of his native heath while a u member of the Lecture Group speaking on the Smith-Towner Bill.

" ic" is a good fellow first and the student afterwards.PERHAPS one of the most popuar and friendly in the Senior class is our own “little Major,” ‘'Dick” Kinn. Affable, yet reticent, sociable yet not forward, studious yet not a slave to study, he has won a host of friends during the brief four years which have just passed. “Dick" is a graduate of St. Peter's Prep, and a resident of New Jersey. Despite his small stature, he is an exceptionally fine tennis player and a lover of all sports. Behind the wheel of his Stutz he is quite a master and so. all in all, he is what we call “versatile." “Dick” is a conscientious and successful scholar, especially distinguishing himself in the chemistr) and physics laboratory. lie was a member of the Senior Dance Committee which conducted the recent reception of tin Class of 23 at the Hotel Biltmore in such an admirable fashion. Possessing a good command of English, with fluency of speech, cool and calculating. he makes an excellent elocutionist and debater. How often have we heard him thundering forth in pathetic strains “Gunga Din.” holding his audience deeply interested? “Dick” is deleimined upon a law course, and we can picture him in a few years standing before a court of justice pleading with calmness, deliberation and -kill the cause of the oppressed. He £tocs forth from Fordham into strange associations hut never forgetting the ties of friendship that bind him to his old comrades, yet ever weaving the fabric of new acquaintances by his upright, sterling character.A ...A, L...A.. .M.. .B,' droned llit editor of il» 1933 Who’s I Who. “Yes,” he concluded, “we'll drop him in here between I.a Folelte and I.ane.” A dream? Yes, but such an event would come as no surprise indeed to those who know “Psychology Ed." But “upon what meat does this our Caesar feed that he is grown so great?” Why. on such best sellers as the Summa Tlieologica. the Catholic Encyclopedia, and sundry other morsels I it for the Pholosophic palate. These lie devours with such excellent mental digestion as to come up smiling, ready to subsume and subdistingiush with Suarez and St. Thomas. Keen-minded and brilliant, striving neither to display nor to hide his own powers, our “Ed" has a flow of words and a pair of hands that have never failed to run neck and neck with the course of his thoughts. Recognizing this, the Council of Debate has frequently employed him as lecturer or debater. Dramatics, too. have claimed him. “Ed” has extended his interests also beyond the campus gate. As High Wallingford of their Royal Windinesses he has found a worthy field for his controversial abilities. And as for his social side. well, let deeds count. Add to these achievements his staunch advocacy of better taxi service for Fordham. and you have a student, a man of affairs and a benefactor. So now, “Ed, with utmost confidence in vour success, we bid you farewell, and we can do nothing better than wish you a sincere, old-fashioned, “Good buck."E" came to Fordham from Passaic, New Jersey, tiie home of athletes extra-ordinary, and if ever Passaic High had a more loyal son than our own “Steve" we should like to meet him. And the same fidelity and fight that carried “Steve" through his Prep-school days has characterized his four years at Fordham. It was not surprising then to find “Steve" taking to football as the proverbial duck takes to water. We have grown so accustomed to watching him on the line that no matter how brilliant his play we always accepted it as a matter of course. In the classroom “Steve” put tin same energy and earnestness ol purpose into his work than lie did on the field, and he never hit his opponents’ line any harder than he “hit” some of his philosophy exams. An all-round athlete and student is “Steve.” Brother Lesko is now a lull Hedged Knight of Columbus, and his fellow-knights who “assisted” “Steve" on that May evening when In received his “third degree” assured ns that he made good use of his ability as a wrestler: nevertheless, we have it on “Steve’s" own word that “sleep was not for him" that night. At all events he conducted himself nobly under “trying circumstances," to say the least. “Steve” is very fond of the “beauties” of Passaic, and they, in turn, seem much interested in their “Rodolph.” S all right, “Steve." we’re from Jersey ourselves, so we don’t blame von.§§1 I •St. Peter's Prep, Jersey City, N.

Ilis verses have a ringing cadence and exotic flavor; his diction etches the mind with thoughts as clear-cut as the engraved characters on a freshly minted coin. But it is in the short story that his genius develops its highest candlcpower. He has the touch that marked Dc Maupassant. Kipling and Poe; the ability to create atmosphere. While only a Sophomore one of his stories was picker! by a critic as one of the three best stories published in any college magazine for that year.

'“| HE unique distinction of being the first of his class to break, into that conservative journal, the Fordham Monthly, belongs to “Syl" Liddy. In fact, his poem, “Sailor Captain John," was the only contribution that appeared from the Freshman class of that year. But. alas, the lure of the footlights which has tempted many a talented youth, enticed the embryo scribe from his muse! In consequence, we saw very little of “SyPs” poetry until this last year. He has of late inaugurated a vogue of "home and fireside verse which has made us wonder ii lie is not looking forward to a domestic as well as a public career. It was well that he turned to dramatics, for not only has he brought credit to himself by his very praiseworthy interpretations on the boards, but has reflected glory on our class, which in point of numbers has never been strongly represented in the theatrical field. “Syl” is also a runner. He carried the baton in many a relay and always gave the best he had. On many a warm afternoon “Syl" might be seen taking a turn around the track just for the exhiliration. But his cynical classmates in the grandstand would persist in saying that someone else was watching! It is the custom, in these brief thumbnail sketches of those we have associated with for four years, to predict the career they will follow. We venture to prophesy that tin President of "Mimes and Mummers" will score a decided hit in the buskin. 1 3 "T" IAL SI is a product of St. Peter’s Prep of Jersey, and one of the liveliest members of the class. A real pure-gold friend, a student of exceptional J natural ability, a dispenser of humor and sunshine, such is our own good old scout “Si.” His perseverance and determined spirit has been proven by four long years of daily travel from Jersey to the far recesses of Fordham. “Si" has the popularity of a "Horseshoe" politician, the pep of a bantam and the sincerity of a Damon or Pythias. He is quite an artist at terpsichorean manoeuvers, gracing Fordham's social affairs with great constancy and enthusiasm. Though not a member of the debate council “Si" is well able to bold bis own in any discussion arising at class meetings. Time after time, with a mastery of the situation, a conciseness of thought and a display of logical power, he has won over the class to the adoption of his opinions. He is a diligent scholar in biology and advanced chemistry as well as in bis regular class activities. He may come late to any aflair. but once present. ou will feel the happy influence of bis presence. No matter in what field “Si” sets bis course, whether it be medicine or law or business, we predict for him the success of an Algerian hero, for be has all the qualifications necessary, together with a happy disposition, a courage of convictions and independence of thought, which will load him to the highroads of prosperity in the land of budding future. andhew c.

HERE we have a real “silver tongued orator." as any one of the boys will testily. Debating has always been one of “Andy’s’ greatest weaknesses, and speech-making comes as easy to him as translating a Latin passage out ol a “trot. A busy man of all airs. “Andy” is rarely seen enjoying blissful moments in idleness and repose, rather, he seems always hastening somewhere on important business. He is most capable and whatever task he is entrusted with is bound to be brought to completion to the fullest satisfaction of everyone interested. His classmates realized this, and when the time came to choose a Chairman of the Commencement Week Committee. a position that insures its holder of plenty of responsibility, toil and worry, “AndvV name was immediately decided upon. One « f his foremost accomplishments was his great work in the organization of the recently formed Fordham “Prep" Alumni Association. Though only in existence about five months the new association is in a most flourishing state, due in great part to the fact that the alumni members in appreciation of his work had elected him president. In addition to this the recent election of the Day Scholars' Soladitv placed on “Andy s shoulders the duties of Prefect. Rut “Andy” is a glutton for punishment. He seems to thrive on hard work, and the perpetual smile he wears is never dimmed even when confronted by tin greatest difficulties. With such qualities, combined with his most engaging personality, we expect to see “Andy” reach a high place in the world and we are certain he will not disappoint us. TO anyone seeking a sure cure for the blues we recommend a protracted session with “Tim and we feel certain that the remedy prescribed will prove effective in nine eases out of ten. Seldom, if ever, has anyone been found who could long withstand “Tim’s” sallies of wit, but when in rare cases such an unhappy individual is located, we know that he is either destined for the Debating Society or the ownership of a funeral parlor. How often have the boys been suffering the pangs of a cut and dried lecture, when “Tim came to the rescue with a remark, soto voce, that sent the whole class off into gales of laughter and once more made life worth the living. Among Tim’s” numerous accomplishments is his marked ability in performing on the violin which won for him an important place in the college orchestra during his Sophomore and Junior years. This ability is due not only to his own natural artistry, but also to that valuable characteristic which makes him devote all his energies to a difficult task until he has completed it to his satisfaction. In addition. “Tim" is an excellent student and each year his name is certain to be found up amongst the class leaders, an accomplishment which many envy but few attain. If it be true that “a happy heart makes the burden light " then wc arc sure that but few cares will fall to “Tim’s” share when his turn comes to combat the proverbial cruelties of an unkind world. }r -. ■ -i{JOSEPH M.

A TOW meet the Jekyll-Hyde member of the class— the man whose college career has been completely divided into two existences, one as an athlete, and one as a literary man—not least as a newspaperman. First, let us introduce “Scoop"’ McCloskey, cub reporter on a certain metropolitan newspaper. In this capacity, “Joe " shone as the author of certain humorous and philosophical observations on the “College Notes” page, as well as for the uniquely characteristic nature of his sports write-ups. There is another McCloskey. known to his intimates as "Joie Ray.” In this role he appears in a track suit, as a meinbei ol the cross country and 1923 relay teams, on both of which his performances have been creditable, at times verging on the remarkable. For some time we were at sea as to the origin ot his ability to run. It now seems probable that it arose from his early morning sprint to catch the ferry to New York—for “Mac” lives “’way out West in Jersey.” “Joe’s” very noticeable military bearing was acquired as a member of the Sixty-Ninth Regiment. One of “Mac’s” fondest recollections is of the summer of 1921. when lie accompanied his regiment to summer camp and spent his entire time there supplying “chow " to tin hungry hordes. We venture to predict that no member of '23 will ever think of past days at Fordham without also a smiling recollection of “Joe” McCloskey, whose sole claim to a place in our memories, strong though it he, is because he was a “regular fellow,” and a “good sport.” lr- --------------JAMES A.

IT was quite some time before we could figure out why “Jim" decided to forego the life of a boarder and join the crowd that taxies to school every morning until one day we met the reason. Then we even thought of moving to Brooklyn ourself. “Cosey " was named. There are very few men in College who can actively engage in business most every afternoon in the week, keep up in their classwork to the extent that they are always with the leaders, find time to serve on the Athletic Board, in the Debating Society, and on the Lecture platform, and yet “Jim” is one of those men. He has done all these things and more. Impossible, you say? Ordinarily perhaps, but you forget that in all this there was that “sustaining influence," that “sweet incentive." that—but there we go oil to Brooklyn again! In all seriousness, though, whatever "Jim" has attempted he has succeeded in doing well. We regret that he found it impossible to devote the time to training that would be necessary if he would follow athletics as he did in Prep, but then on the other hand, who shall say that he did not choose wisely in selecting the “finer things" as fields for his endeavor? A brilliant orator, a clever debater and a man who lias been able to think accurately and clearly at all times, “Jim’ should make a splendid lawyer and. we understand, that is to be his profession.

His ability, moreover, is not limited to basketball; He has been a member of the tennis team for three years, and pitched for the Senior baseball team. One of his proudest achievement? is his captaincy of three of the teams representing St. John's Hall, whose activities used to wile away many a spring Sunday morning. “Ed's” hearty and infectious laugh is his most famous characteristic. It has a habit of ringing out at the most unexpected times sometimes during an ethics lecture, or perhaps when some unusually brilliant wise-crack has stirred his sense of humor. “Smacker” is the sort of fellow who, once known, is never forgotten—not because of any particular trait, hut because the total sum of ail compels our memory and affection.

John would have been "Royal Keeper of the Treasure Vaults,” for he has been Class Treasurer four years. Hardly a smoker or entertainment ever occurred without his name on the financial committee. But in the hearts of his friends John will best be remembered for his quiet, unostentatious, efficient charity. No student ever exemplified the life of St. Vincent de Paul better than he who was the head of that Society at Fordham. Scarcely a man in his Class, aye or in the whole college, but what has known the bounty of his hand! He would be the last to approve of this praise, but we feel that it must be written because it portrays the real character of the man. Before coming to college John was a sailor-boy and many a windy day he could be seen around the campus with his pea-jacket and knitted cap tacking for a sheltered cove. No matter what knowledge he may have assimilated pertinent to Manilla nomenclature while on board, he certainly learned how to cook appetizing viands and concoct delectable salads. Fat. jovial, generous to a fault, humble, modest and unassuming, John's sole failing lies in an abiding obsession that Ireland of a right ought to he free and independent.“ ¥ D” spent the first three years of his college life at Seaton Hall and therefore I’ did not come to Fordham until his Senior year. Those of us who knew “Ed" prior to and during his sojourn at South Orange found in him a man who was always ready with a good word and a contagious smile for every one of his fellows. Nor did it take him long to win a permanent place in the hearts of his new friends at Fordham. “Ed” is quite an artist. When graduated from St. Peters High School in Jersey City it was staled in the class prophecy that “Ed” would be “an artist of unequalled fame.' There i hardly a man in the class who has not been at some class meeting or other an unknowing subject for “Ed’s” genius. Fortunately, or unfortunately, those of us who sit in front of “Ed” have been rather poor models lor him. But even at that we've seen some nice sketches of our latest Fordham hair cut (rear view! and a startling likeness of our right ear also drawn from life- and from the rear. Truly “Ed" has talent.

But “Mac is one New Englander who has so ably and eloquently defended his opinions on all topics that we grew to respect his views even when disagreeing most emphatically. A fiery orator, capable of arousing the emotions of the most dormant, he is a splendid debater and extempore speaker. The directness of his attack and the stinging lash of his invective earned him many enemies at first, hut his enthusiasm for a cause and the sincerity of his purpose soon won them back. In fact his fellow students thought him worthy of the highest office within their power to bestow, President of the Fordham University Athletic Association. He has the ankee instinct for business. A tireless assiduous worker with a genius for organization, “Mac" has given his best to Fordham activities. He was circulation manager of the Monthly for a year and it circulation nearly doubled. For the past two years lie has been business manager of the same publication and net paid advertising reached the zenith point. Like all successful business men “Mac” lias a hobby- A little unusual perhaps, but he seemed to derive plenty of fun from it. In his spare time he drafted and revised constitutions: First for the Class, then the Debating Society and finally for the Athletic Association. And lest you think he was everything but a student, it should be mentioned in passing that for four years he won high honors in his Class. 2 US' MICHAEL JOSEPH MAHONY.

"Mike” is a confirmed woman-hater, hut his arguments against the so-called “I air Sex” are always within reason. He cares for few companions, bnt those few he binds to him with chains of steel. As one of the charter members of the Sophomore B Park Club he did much to cement those bonds between the original members which lill exist today as strong and as firm as they were two years ago.

In class a ml out of class, lie alwavs shows that rare courtesy and consideration which arc the distinctive marks of a gentleman. We first met “Bob" in Freshman as a member of the large and cosmopolitan French class which met in the lower floor of the Medical Building. There, “Bob," together with the rest of us. toiled amid the mazes of irregular verbs and the puzzling constructions of the popular Romance language. In Junior. “Boh," with his friend and cliuin from Xavier, “'Pom" Brennan, changed over from the Pre-Medical to the Ail’s course, joining the ranks of the young embryo philosophers. Since then he has become one of the best liked members of the class. A keen student, always interested in college and class activities, possessed of a quaint sense of humor. “Bob" has endeared himself to all with whom be has come ykN in contact. Al His courteous demeanor and general good looks have won him laurels in the y field of social activities at which In- is in frequent attendance. His visits to the distant borough of Flathush has evidenced his interest in a certain fair party in the city of churches—and the interest is mutual.

NE moment, please, ’ gentle reader, whilst we say a few words about “Jack” I I Morris. “Jack" traces back his ancestry to King George, the Fourth, of England, one of the nionarchs of the “good old days." Objective evidence of this fact he has often supplied his fellow Brooklynites. “Jack. however, despite his noble ancestry, is human and thus has his weakness. It happens to he a roaming spirit that he cannot conquer. Innumerable are the reports that have come to us of his crusades to Summit «N. J.', Saratoga, Astoria and Flatbush. He could not, however, accustom himself to the Summit taxi-drivers, the betting element at Saratoga, the garb of the Astoria commuters or the tea-sipping activities of the Flatbusliiles (he tried hard enough, though). Like the gallant knights of old, lie inevitably comes borne (Bay Ridge! to find the perfect peace—and why should he not find it there? As Ring Lardner would say, “Vou know me, Al!" “Jack"’ is quite active, both in and extra curriculum. As a committee member, his work did much to insure the success of the December and April class dances. He was a charter member and one of the bright lights of the Ethical Club, also of a certain other Senior society. He has contributed special articles to a certain New Y'ork morning newspaper. “Jack" is an apt Latin student, quoting the classics freely. He is considered quite handsome (his pitr.ure does not do him full justice) and is, without a doubt, one of the most popular men of the Class.Track.

As a humorist “John V.” reigns supreme. The power of mimicry is said to be an art in itself and at that rate John is certainly some artist. We have a very clear memory of a morning lecture in Physics when our Reverend instructor propounded his famous question: “How are you going to do it?” and from the back of the room came the “echo” of the equally famous answer, “1 don't know!" No need to crane our necks. Everyone knew that John was with us. In our four years at Fordham we have enjoyed “Jack's” impersonations immensely. On those rare spring mornings when we were wont to sleep during class we could always count on John to gi e us the entire lecture afterwards, with all the appropriate, accompanying gestures. But with all his ready wit there is nothing petty or mean about him. and then, too, there is always that disarming smile. A good student is “John and as far as we know one who has never had to experience those cold shivers when the Psychology marks were being read. We shall all miss “Jack" when June sends us on our various ways, but wherever we go there will go with us the memory of a sterling character, a sunny smile and a jovial friend. —7 i  I JAMES MATTHEW MFEDOON “JIM” Si.

'T-TTHKNEN ER we think of ‘‘Jim’ Muldoon, there simultaneously occurs to us X y thoughts of Staten Island. We arc not attempting, by this parallel, to discredit “Jim" in any way—for he is above all reproach but as “Jim” is the only Staten Island habitant in the class, it seems that there is a necessary nexus between the two concepts. Possibly it seems that we exaggerate in saying that “John,” as “Jim” is best known to his intimate friends, is beyond all reproach. Such, however, we again, even more boldly assert. Many's the time that “Jim.” “one of the moral leaders of the class.” has given worthy counsel to the doubt!ul. In fact, was it not during the recent retreat that “Jim was called upon by a certain most reverend professor to favor the class with some spiritual readings? “Jim” is right there, however, in more ways than one. As a student, his nineties in psychology, ethics and astronomy, speak lor themselves. This success, “Jim” has steadily maintained in his lour years at I'ordhain. On the ice. in his Freshman and Sophomore years, he held down a regular position on Fordham’s hockey teams. However. 'tis in the ballroom, parlor or rear seat of an automobile that we i?) find “Jim” at his best.

J The old motto, “Semper Kidelis,” gleams untarnished on his shield, and he brought to the classroom a characteristic persistence learned in a harder school. But there were “open spaces where his busy days had their air and sunshine.” First it was running, then wrestling, then tennis, and then he took up—no, you're wrong, it was dancing. He never seemed to think of our fair equals except as a necessary element of his favorite pastime. It is fortunate that the Catholic church is liberal in such matters, for we feel certain “Jack" could never he an orthodox Methodist. One bad habit lie picked up from the sailors, that of taking the name of Judas and Michael Angelo in vain. We can forgive that fault when we recall his cheery smile and merry whistle. For a long time we were in doubt as to just what line “Jack” would follow after leaving Alina Mater, because he so assiduously wooed several avocations. Recently, however, he struck a trail that has led him deeply into the iabyrinthia thorax of the “lepus cuniculus” in search of the carotid. His room often resembled a menagerie or a museum of fossilized antedeluvian species; his spare time is devoted to injections and the art of tying ligatures with his teeth.

Lest the reader should depart in ignorance and doubt we hasten to make it plain that the Park Club was organized by a group of those select few who thirst after knowledge and its avowed purpose was to study the beauties of nature at close range.

Quentin O’Connell stepped into the limelight at Fordham as manager of the Freshman basketball team. With quiet perseverance, so characteristic of the man. “Quent" arranged a pretentious schedule, and the success which attended the yearling quintet in almost all of its games was due to the earnest, energetic work of the manager. When tin baseball season came around, we iound “Quent out there on the diamond at the keystone sack. With his friend and chum, “Babe" Williams, at third, and “Quent" at second, the Freshman team had a keen snappy combination. Since Freshman “Quent" has turned to more serious pursuits; and in Senior we find him acting as secretary to that most august of Senior organizations the Ethical Club. In his spare rime, “Quent” is a radio fan, a golfer. Whenever anyone wants information of the latest message broadcasted from the central stations, one need but hunt up “Quent” O'Connell for the needed information. Along with “Babe" Williams and “Bill " Finnegan, “Quent" made up a trio that was always active in class activities, whether athletic, social or otherwise. And incidentally in social gatherings “Quent" is always a famed youth. With his good looks and erect, martial carriage, ho has received many admiring glances from his fair friends.

On the Uoor of debate, be is cool, logical and convincing, appealing to common sense rather than the emotions that arc so fickle. "Ray possesses the three all important essentials, of ability, character and popularity. He ranks among the honor students of Senior and never fails to meet you with a pleasant word and a winning smile. Being of a somewhat retiring personality, few know of his wonderful success as a musician in the field of melody. And it is safe to say that fewer would still know, if it was left to “Ray” alone, for there is no spirit of boastfulness to dim the brightness of his character. Many times has he gratuitously offered his musical talent to aid worthy charities, to the sacrifice of pecuniary advantage. Never has he been appealed to for the free use of his services that he has not most willingly volunteered his every effort. “Ray” has done well while at Fordham. Ih has achieved all that a college education affords. Some day he will be a powerful leader in the industrial and political world, for such a character as his is bound to shine preeminent and to guide the way for prosperity and contentment. . : -ATT Ol R years ago John’s father brought his young but stately hopeful to Fordhani and entrusted him to our care The young man proved to be very satisfactory, having a quiet, unassuming manner which has made him distinctive at Fordhani. He came to us from Cathedral High School but as soon as we got to know “Jack" the fact was no longer held against him. Since his coming in 1919 his good spirits and hearty laugh have always served as gloom dispellers for the scholastic blues. He is a regular question mark, puncturing his conversations conslanti) with “Why?" and “How do you know ?" “Jack." is a splendid fellow, a true Kordhamite and a particularly loyal supporter of the teams. Though “Jack” finds great interest in football, his main sport is baseball. During the spring, when Father Pluvius occasionally runs dry. John appears in baseball togs and cuts some snappy capers on the diamond tor the boys. But you should see him wind up in the parlor, lie's so blase and knightly there that you could hardly recognize the “Jack" of the baseball field and “Jack" of the parlor. Of course the heroine has entered John’s young life—even as far back as Freshman. One of “Jack’s” claims to fame lies in the fact that he is one of the Siamese Twin from Willianishridse, the other lx ins “Al” Halbcrstadt. The two of them, like towers, stalk along the street together, attend the Fordhani social aflairs together not. however, as a couple t and in fact are always together. Despite this fact “Jack" is a good fellow and excellent companion. He has developed a slick-lo-iliveness which is to he envied, and which is certain to luinu him « ieal success. RED” "blew in” from Scranton just in time to enter Sophomore and “blew in is right—in speaking of one who essentially embodies the proverbial, albeit, very often sadly lacking qualities (certainly lacking in this part of the world), of vim. vigor and vitality, “blew is quite proper. Did “Red" ever come into your room in a hurry?—yes “blew in' is quite right. "Red" takes this college affair of four years in a very serious sort of way. which is, of course, according to the objective order of things. It’s certainly an inspiration to see “Red gird his loins in preparation for an exam.—and let us add, by the way. “Red” hits 'em too. right on the nose. In Junior year “Red donned the mole skins to take up his place on the line for the Class of 23’s gridiron gladiators and on that memorable day when 22 went down to vain inglorious defeat at our vindictive hands. "Red made a flying tackle of the Senior’s full back that will long be remembered as one of the most spectacular plays ever witnessed on Fordham field. And. speaking of collegiate gentlemen, “Red" certainly "has caught the metropolitan atmosphere in his dress. However he has not as yet approached that zenith point of ultra-Beau Brummelism which affects blue collars—no his friend Breslin is still that much ahead. It's mighty hard to say just what line of the business world "Red intends to conquer, but as he told us one evening, “'tou II hear from Reddingtcn in ten years. And we surely believe we shall.“A ¥ A HERE are some gentlemen in the class who, although personally unknown to me, have distinguished themselves by their success in the test." said our Professor after the first Psychology paper. In the ensuing enumeration was included the name of “Art” Rcheuscr. And whether by accident or not, that statement epitomizes the character of our “Artie.” Quiet, unobtrusive, yet he always makes his ability felt where intellectual accomplishments are concerned. Even when the lectures are dullest—for it grieves us to admit that they are sometimes so—“Artie” is right on the job. keenly attentive, and misses not a word. “Artie" came to us after two years at Brooklyn College. Strange to say, he showed no bad effects of his long exile from the home of culture, and promptly forged to the fore. Before long the i then I embryo philosophers who led their classmates in the struggle through the mazes of philosophic thought found themselves compelled to share the intellectual spotlight with the stranger in their midst. For "Artie' had come into his own. Me has the unique record of never having volunteered a recitation. Even more unique is the fact that he has never been found at loss for an answer when called on. What more need be said? As Cicero—or was it Shakespeare?—once remarked: “You can't keep a good man down." And sometimes in the dim. uncertain future, be it long or soon, we shall hear again of "Artie.”BEHOLD the countenance, dear reader, of our own ‘‘Earl” Reynolds, Lord High Constable of Brooklyn and Royal Keeper of the Chase of Prospect Park! Ye barons of old, look to your laurels, for Leo's line is more devastating than all your broadswords and battleaxes! “The pen is mightier than the sword.” thinks Leo. “but the tongue is the master of both.” But let us look for a moment at the outward characteristics of our man: Dark- haired. slender, energetic, full of determination and sympathy, an Irish smile, a Tammany handshake—there we have Leo. Another trait of our friend is the tendency to wax Socratic at a moment s notice. “What is the. Moral Order?” “What arguments have we for Probablism?” “What binding force has Economic Law?" Such is the barrage he lays down about the head of any student pretending to Wisdom; nay, he has even carried the assault against the faculty. Yet Leo also recognizes the good to !»• gained from the various college activities and so is a loyal member of the Day Students' Sodality. Besides, he is a member of the Council of Debate, a hardened veteran at the spoken word, a graceful purveyor of compliments, a true knight of the Blarney Stone.

However, it is not only in things scholastic that we are forced to rate “Johnny" so highly. As regards popularity among his class-mates, a true Fordham spirit and a willingness at all times to help his friends out of any difficulties, “Johnny” is also ’way out in the front of the pack. Quiet, to the extreme (except at the antics of a certain prominent member of the ethics class). “Johnny." once you get to know him, becomes a friend whom you can always rely upon and whose regard you will ever seek to maintain. His regular attendance at all Fordham's social events, never unaccompanied, bears out strongly this fact of his ease in acquiring friends. “Johnny.” after receiving his A.B.. will immediately set out after another, an M.D. We can safely forecast, too, that he’ll easily get it by a wide margin—and then some.

Among them are the facts that he is a keen student (the reading of marks always brought this out I ; that he is a poet of rare ability (his contributions t«» “Ihe Monthly" testify to this), and that he is an all around good fellow (his ninety classmates will gladly vouch for this!. “Vince ’ comes from that section of Brooklyn which is known as Bay Ridge.

For he is truly popular. His almost perpetual smile and "wise cracks” have won for him the friendship of his classmates. Always ready for pleasure and seldom deficient in adding to the mirth of the crowd, he will long be remembered as a regular fellow and gloom dispeller. The spirit of the classroom does not in the least dull his jovial disposition, for his capers and antics even in that “holy of holies” has frequently given the boys much pleasure, and just as often provoked the wrath of a certain Prof. But in all this “Sosh” meant no harm and was forgiven on every occasion. Besides having a gloomless disposition. “Vin” is an energetic and devoted student. His studies come before everything, yea—even a good time- and he has done them justice. When, after a spell of examinations, the marks are read, “Vin” is always in a safe and sane position, far ahead of the jinx mark. We re sorry, “Sosh.' old boy, to have you leave us.

I lien it you will travel to the Woolworth Building on Friday, you will find “Jim somewhere on tin- twenty-eighth floor or in the lobby—but always on tin- job. For some reason or other “Jim” is a Sphinx for silence during regular class hours and unless called upon to recite, prelers to let someone else do the talking: but when it comes to the subject of Education in those aforesaid five o'clock classes —what a change! We haven't been able to solve this problem yet. but it is just possible that the change of scenery in the class may have something to do with it. We once inquired as to “Jim’s” favorite study. Like a true philosopher, he immediately “distinguished.” “Mornings.” quoth “Jim.” “Pd say Ethics; evenings. Astronomy but we liave our doubts. A regular fellow is “Jim,” and one who is sure to bring credit to his Alma Mater at whatever task be undertakes.

Slowly, but with certainty he found his way up the path, and after a hasty glance at the buildings, thundered forth that never-to-be-forgotten expression. “So this is Fordham." Of course, it was no time until "Bill had made himself popularly known in the class, llis genial nature and pleasant disposition, capped with flowing locks of auburn hair, have attracted his class-mates and won him great favor with the fair ones. Always smiling and carefree, ready for what ever chance might offer; with a cheery word for everyone: thus has he won a place in the hearts of all his fellows. Nothing whatever seems to worry him. Professors, hooks, classes and final exams all look alike to “Bill.’’ How he does it is his secret. The results are what we see.

Three years later, we see him again on the speaker’s platform, this time telling the student body of the plans and prospects of the football season under the new regime of improved athletics at Fordham. For “Osie" was now football manager. And as manager of tin Metropolitan championship football team, he displayed rare qualities of executive ability: always quiet, persevering; it was lor others to tell how the manager had worked through the entire Summer and Autumn of his Senior year, preparing and putting into execution a football schedule that seemed more pretentious than the material might warrant. Yet the splendid success of the team and the efficient manner in which the football situation was handled reflects great credit on its enterprising manager. Time was. however, before “Osie" became absorbed in football, when other fields of activity claimed him as their own. In Sophomore, it was our pleasant task to present his Glee Club in its initial public periormance. In those days. too. “Osie" became known on the cinder path and across hill and dale of the cross country.

But enough of that. “Bob is primarily a student. Ask anybody. Ask him, even.

The high esteem in which “Pete" is held by bis class-mates lias been attested to so often that a brief list alone can be given of the offices into which lie was swept by overwhelming majorities, lie is a leader of numerous social clubs at Fordham and a zealous worker in every class function.

A line, all-around good fellow, whose countenance is always graced with a broad and cheerful smile. “Babe" is what we call “some boy" scholastically, athletically and socially. “Babe" is also quite a philosopher. In Junior year he was one of the luminaries in unraveling the complications and idiosyncrasies of the traditional philosophical vicious circles. His skill in this respect won for him the favor of a certain Professor of Irish extraction who always called “Frank" “my little Babe.” But indeed, there were others or probably another also well accustomed to calling him “my little Babe." “Babe’s” forte is baseball. He has been a. member of the baseball squad for the past two years and when in the game has cut some spectacular capers. When in the cradle, “Babe" revealed his proficiency with a “bawl,” and his aptitude for the national game has never ceased. Why, if Volstead knew of the hops that “Babe” puts on the ball, there would undoubtedly be a disturbance at Fordham. But “Babe" can bat 1000% in the parlor and in the ballroom. As a social factor “Babe” goes big. and for this reason has been envied by many of bis contemporaries. “Babe’s” generous, open nature lias made him a favorite with all, and it is with something more than a passing regret that wc clasp his hand and say “take kecr verse If.” HOWARD M.

It s altogether a rather difficult proposition t » affirm exactly just what is Howard’s forte—we think it lies in handling the essay. There is a quiet charm, a delightful piquancy and an exquisite style to all his work.

McCarthy ROBERT K. MAHONEY JOSEPH WEED PAl L McLAl GULIN f I A HE class of '23 entered Fordham under bright skies. And under bright skies j have passed our four years amidst Fordhain’s shadowed halls of learning. If, perhaps, we have not carried out to its fullest significance Kipling’s ideal of “filling each unforgiving minute with sixty seconds worth of distance run”—and who can claim such perfection?—at any rate, the record of our achievements stand in mute testimony of what '23 did at Fordham. For the two years previous to our entrance. Fordham was clothed in the garb of a military post. The Fordham Ambulance Corps, along with hundreds of other Fordham men were rendering glorious service in France; and at home the student soldiers marched and trained on the placid lawns of tin- campus. But by September 1919, the military atmosphere had disappeared; the light shuffling step of the college man replaced the heavy tread of the soldier: and amidst a truly colorful scene of men returning to college after long absences filled with momentous events, with chums greeting chums and renewing their past friendships and experiences—amidst such a gathering came the one hundred and twenty confident youths to whom tradition has ascribed the name Freshmen. Owing to the large enrollment, we Freshmen were divided into three sections —Father Oates and Mr. Connelly presiding over the art students, and Mr. Edward Sullivan in the professional chair of the prospective science students. In those first few days of class, when we had just been assigned to our class rooms, and everything seemed strange and new, there sprang up the numerous friendships and gatherings and groups that were to develop during the four years to come. Hence, it was in a spirited elec tion that “Andy" McCarthy was selected as class president. Each section likewise chose officers: then an executive council was formed; and also a Freshman Athletic Association, with “Handsome Bill" Finnegan as President—thus everything was made ready for the various Freshman activities. As a means of getting the whole class together a smoker was arranged shortly after the opening of classes. I nder the Chairmanship of our genial W estern plainsman. John Mulvey, a pleasant, get-together entertainment took place. It was at this, our first smoker, where the class comedians, artists, and orators and. we must add —singers, broke forth in all their youthful array. It was at our second smoker, arranged by Frank Leslie shortly after Christmas, when we first donned our Freshman caps. These were natty maroon hats with white 1923 numerals. And from then on the maroon-capped youngsters were familiar figures about the campus and the village. The most important social function of the year, however, was the 123 ROON dance at the McAlpin Hotel at which the yearling social lions came out in all their glory. Perhaps the greatest achievement of the class in Freshman was along the line of athletic endeavor. The basketball team, under the able management, of ‘ Qucnt O’Connell, won splendid success on the court, which terminated in a victory over the yearling quintet of C. C. N. V. The spirited demonstration that marked this basketball victory was a sample of the enthusiasm of the Freshman class. On the diamond a crack baseball team won an enviable reputation by a long sliing of victories. On the clay courts a Freshman tennis team increased even further the scope of yearling activities. In the realm of academic endeavors in Freshman, we learned more or less Latin and some Greek; wrote poetry as only a Freshman can; and learned to dress and act in the manner of collegiate “Joe Brooks." In evidence, there sprang up a number of wise-crackers, to the amazement and delight of their fellow classmates—hut with rather an opposite effect on Father Mahan, whose threats often stilled the nimble wits into silence. The Spanish and Trig classes were undoubtedly the most popular. For surely, where the dry intricate computations of mathematics arc tempered by eloquent orators pleading for the Irish cause; and where the task of translating Spanish classics is diversified by violin solos—who could ask for more ideal conditions. And it was for that reason that the Freshmen flocked to the Spanish and Trig classes in such large, eager throngs. But soon the year was over; filled with activities as were our days, the time had passed rapidly. And as wc left Fordham in June, it was with a resolve to be hack again in September with the spirit of '23 intact. 124Fokoham Pkki .President..................................JOHN IMl’LVEY I ice President....................ROBERT F.

And with the olas politicians waxing eloquent on the League of Nations, pro and con. and the embryo scientists waxing wroth amid the mysteries of coke and carbon and all the what nots of chemistry, we started off in a maze of intricacies. And to add to the general dismay came the migration of all the science students to tin- arts course with the war cry ol “Pro Gra. ca Scholastica.” Pul matters settler! gradually: Harding was elected; and the roll-call was finally straightened out in Chemistry; afternoon classes were resumed and the pig-skin chasers once more filled Fordham Field with the glorious boot of the football. The great task that now faced the Sophomores at the opening of the college was to take the Freshmen in hand and teach them the fundamental element of Fordham tradition. Hence, altei organizing with a new stall of officers, a program was drawn up according to which a set of rules were set down and presented to the Freshmen with the admonition to follow them or suffer dire consequences. These rules varied anywhere from wearing distinctive green caps and dark ties and socks to stepping off the path when a senior passed by. The Freshmen secured their caps as commanded. but they developed a spirit of determined opposition to the rules. Hence there resulted many a still battle between Freshmen and Soph, both en masse and individually, and strained relations existed which terminated only at the decree of the faculty, who grew alarmed at the abduction of our class-president and the subsequent reprisals of ducking Freshmen in the waters of the Bronx River. Out of these relations between the Sophomores and Freshmen, there sprang a keen rivalry on the gridiron: in two close, exciting games, the Freshmen were twice the winner. Then, according to our agreement we plaved hosts to the I-reslmieii at a very enjoyable smoker that was held under the direction of John McManus at the Fordham Club on the ( This pleasant gathering cemented a spirit of mutual friendship between the two lower classes of the college. By far our greatest achievement in Sophomore was the class activity in the Greater Fordham Appeal. W ith our own John F. McManus as student chairman, and a corps of twelve team captains, the class of 23 capped the honor list of all the university classes with a pledged total of ten thousand dollars- more than doubling the quota assigned to us. The social event of the year was a gav gathering at the McAIpin—and who can ever forget it?—at which wc wore the hosts of the Georgetown and varsity font-ball teams. “Joe” Weed was once more the chairman of the dance committee. 126t M A R O O N — X In Sophomore the class 5 1 i11 remained in the three divisions, with Fathers Oates, Stedler and I'racy at the helm of each section. The policy of a united class in Evidences still continued. That Evidence class in Sophomore was a restful and dignified gathering, with exams few and far between and very simple at that; it was so much in harmony according to our way of thinking—with the subject matter; and so different from the tempestuous and disastrous classes that was vet to he our lot in Evidences and kindred subjects. Sundry organizations sprang up in Sophomore—hut few of them lasted very long. I here were the l ops, who fluttered gavly before the public eye for a time, hut ended in nothingness at the close of the year. Then there was the Senior Sell-Defense Societv which—some sav originated in Sophomore, and which continued and grew strong in numbers.

And with our two years of college behind us. we looked forward eagerly to attaining the much coveted distinction of being an upperclassman. 127New Em; i. am lip-State" Ex-ServicePit si-lent......................WILLIAM II. finnfgan Vice-President.....................JOSEPH G.

Away with the Greek and Latin texts, with the linears and inter linear and all the other helps that the mind of the ingenious classical student had discovered or ever invented away, indeed, with all textbooks, as our Logic Professor so aptly told us in one of his first lectures— “Carry the matter in your head and not in the book was his warning advice. I'or now we were entering into the sacred realm of philosophy. Father Muhony shared his domain in Junior, with Father Cox. due to the large number of budding philosophers: and many a profitable yet pleasant hour was spent under the tutelage of these two professors. To be sure, at first, and for many a moon afterward we waded in the maze of intellectual apprehensions and second intentions: but gradually we caught on. and these and many more intricate terms became the by-words of our eager bird dogs. And. emerging from that class in June, there were some enterprising youths who lelt they could answer, at least in round numbers, that much mooted question propounded by the Logic Professor—“How many angels can dance on the head of a needle?” Our second great academic enterprise in Junior was in the department of Physics, the great natural science of Fordham University—a fact which might well be noted when advertising the I Diversity. It was in Physics where we learned what a smooth running machine results from a stall1 of perpetual agreement and harmony between the platform and the benches; and how. with that harmony disturbed, one could be taken over the jumps. The physics lecture hours were always filled with new and arresting phenomena. At times “Andy” McCarthy or “Tom" Howlev would alternate with Father O'Laughlin in demonstrating some of the principles of Physics: or. at any rate, every experiment that was demonstrated in lecture always worked —there was never a hitch or an explanation of what should have happened: in this case it always did happen. It is not a far cry from the class halls to the “ballroom.” And especially in Junior, our activities were centered upon that greatest of all social events—the Junior Prom. Our pen can but poorly describe the social triumph which that fomial affair at the Biltmore achieved for ’23. To the strains of Paul Whiteman’s famous orchestra and amid a brilliant scene of gay colors, the social lions reached the pinnacle of their glory; and many other less socially inclined youths made their bow that night. The unprecedented social success of the Prom reflected the tireless efforts and perseverance of the committee under the leadership of “Tom” Keresey. who worked so long and earnestly. Certainly the Junior Prom of ’23 will always 129MAROON remain in our memory as the greatest of all the social activities of our college life. Along athletic lines, the class football team led the interclass league, with a victory over the Seniors and a tie game with the Freshmen. With “Dinin ' Harrington playing center, and “Jack" Nolan plowing through the opponents' line, ours looked like a winning combination. It was in Junior when the Harvester Club broke forth in all its glory with our own George Sauer as its moving spirit, and many a heart beat faster at the teas: and dansants that George so cleverly arranged. It was likewise in Junior when the hvidence class ceased to be just plain Evidences and was christened w ith the highfalutin' name of Apologetics. Certainly, Junior was a year of many diversified activities, all of which were attended with great success a fitting year to prepare ourselves for the future bur-dons of Senior. 1307 Senior President...........................BERNARD A.

The fruit of every man's endeavors during his three previous years must show' itself when he is called upon to ‘‘do his stuff" in the closing year ol his college career. For the duties and responsibilities of college activities fall heavily on the shoulders of the Seniors. Hitherto, wc had followed and joined with others in the different enterprises—now. it was for us to lead and set the pace for the others to join and follow. Hence there has been a serious aspect to our college life in Senior. There were those nerve-racking major examinations and the consequent cramming and “nights-before” that invariably preceded them; there were the academic, athletic, and social affairs to sponsor; and finally there was the 'tear Book to edit and the commencement activities to undertake. All in all. it has been a year of deep significance and, looking back now with all the requisites for the sheepskin resting securely in the office of the Dean it has been a year filled with real achievement. But there has been another—a lighter side to our Senior activities. For the scholastic mysteries of intrinsic determinants, rational appetencies, and brute matter as such could not daunt the bird dogs and their keen followers of ’23. Those bright skies that were with us at the starting line, shone just as radiantly on us as we breasted the tape at the finish. Even amidst the metaphysical distinctions and subtle sub-distinctions of some psychological problem, there was ever a humorous “crack’ and a sally of real wit. The “wise-crackers" and pun artist- exhibited their wares on the Senior Bulletin Board in the face of all the dictates of right reason. And despite the somewhat abstract matter of the major subjects there was always the brightening influence of the class’s favorite study—Astronomy—that delightful of all sciences wherein the mind may wander amid the starry fields of planets without being disturbed by the jerky-toc-dancing proclivities that marred many a restful hour in the early morning classes. And the geology and political economy classes were a source of rest and quiet for those who were exhausted after their mad hunt for ethical facts and ethical books that “unfortunately were out of print.' Aside from purely academic activities, we engaged in several very enjoyable social functions. The dance at the Savoy was a pleasant gathering and brought back memories of our Prom. The Spring reception at the Biltmore, which look place in April, was an enjoyable affair, in keeping with the season of the “Young man’s fancy.” Finally, there was the Harvester Tea Dansant at the Bit , which 131“Tom” Keresey arranged with liis usual taste for the elite; needless to say, many Seniors graced the charming event with their presence. With the advent of Spring came many numerous diversions. The Varsity play achieved a distinct hit, abl concurred in by the ushering of the dignified Seniors. Then came the McNamara Day at the Polo Grounds, at which the class turned out to award our own “Timmie Mac" a testimonial to his success as a major league pitcher. Along similar lines came the trips to ale and Princeton by motor, rail and otherwise, in order to follow up the fortunes of our baseball learn. But all things have an end—even though we must tread a difficult path to reach it. And it has been so with us. In May. came the dull days of the final exams and the tortuous orals which must have had their origin in the dark days of the Spanish Inquisition. But these passed, and with the credentials for our degrees safely attained, we can turn our attention to the Senior Week activities which “Andy" McCarthy and his committee are arranging. This is to he in the nature of a gala week consisting of dances, a play, baseball game, formal reception, banquet, and Commencement Exercises proper. And ere these pages are very old. Senior Week will he hut history—and a memorv, for by then we shall have parted. And if there is an element of sadness in parting, nevertheless, the ties that hind us together and to Fordham can never he broken; and in parting, there is the significance of the magical word Commencement—the beginning of our path in life. May each tread that path with success. 132JUNIORPresident -Vice-President Secretary -Treasurer • Historian Class Officers WILLIAM R. MEAGHER VINCENT T. CAVAN AC 11 ANDREW W. SEXTON - GEORGE A. BROOKS STERNS S. Cl NNINGHAM History of the Class of 1924 J THE sun's rays filtered through the green arcade of the drive-way, mellowing the red brick and grey stone of the collection of buildings which were the concrete representation of an abstract name—Fordham. Il was September twenty-first, nineteen hundred and twenty. A crowd of boys straggled up the path. Somewhere in its midst was the future class of ’21. Our first thought was to seek a familiar face, a link with a short deceased past. For a while it seemed 135MAROON !ik« a search for the proverbial needle, but fortune favored us. Five minutes Ijtn. in the thronged auditorium, we listened with rapt attention until an un-i ullled voice announced: “Freshman ‘B Room 19." And in that white-walled chamber we abandoned our individuality and became a part of tin- whole—Freshman Glass. Herded into three groups under the guidance of Father Mattimore, S. J., Mr. Gannon. S. J.. and Mr. Kearney. S. J., we had that one hour class which always inaugurates school, a class which imposes no obligation. ave to sit—and let the teacher talk. It was a cheerful, care-free time, with the mid-term examinations appearing as insignificant molehills rather than insurmountable mountains. The (|avs were punctuated by class-meetings, uniulv. somewhat turbulent assemblies in which fragments of parliamentary law strove with an innate tendency to disorder .,nd the most leather lunged and golden-tongued orator secured the election of bis candidate or tin passing ol his measure. Frank Downe) was elected president and was faced, not with a bankrupt, but an empty treasury. That it should he filled was the unanimous decision. How almost disrupted unity. The time-honored raffle was the means chosen to bridge the difficulty, and. as always, it did. Immediate relations, friends and enemies were deprived of their long hoarded dimes and one exciting morning, the drawing gave victory to Alfred Loszinski. Yet these memories lake on the pallid Inn of an active sun when compared with the battle with tin Sophomores. Just why many heads were jiot broken is a riddle lit for the Sphinx. Our only recollection, painful yet, is of being catapulted down the hack -teps of the Auditorium and trying to derive comfort by repeating over and over: “There’s nothing so had that it couldn’t be worse." The November days came, brief, crisp. Brown leaves whirled over hard ground. Sharp north winds, flurric of snow, slate-colored clouds. The Georgetown game was over. Well fought, but lost. Before the game the more patriotic or less sensible members of the class had paraded around the field leading the Fordhani ram. Everyone hilarious except the dumb beast, who, lacking rationality, had difficulty in distinguishing between a nightmare and a celebration. A period of quiet, broken by a plunge into the social stream. Plans were made for a dance at the Waldorf-Astoria at the beginning of the Christmas vacation. It was the first social affair given by the Freshman Class and the officers had worked hard and long to make it a success. It was the winter the orchestras played “Mammy" and the apotheosis of terpsichorean art consisted in ability to do the ‘“Scandal." Wc rejoiced in our success and reckoned not the cost. Quickly, imperceptibly, the wintry days faded into a fearsome February. Examinations came and went. So did we. I’he Junior “From" gave a pleasant interlude and we little knew we were dancing on a volcano. Then, in tin “cold, grey la"'n of the morning after the marks were announced. Many names were called and a few chosen—to leave. With the proverbial sigh of relief the class went back to its daily tasks. Back to Horace and Wentworth and Gnggenburger, to tin restfulness of “Evidences" and tin intricacies of Greek. Then, in the Spring, with the budding of the trees and the revival of tennis and baseball, we com- 136menced the last lap—the preparation for the final tests. And during the drowsy hours of the summer vacation thought of our luird-earned “sixties’ and made plans for a harder pursuit of knowledge in the coining year. In its externals Sophomore year was almost a repetition of Freshman. But its spirit was vastly different. We were no longer somewhat amazed new-comers, but were invested with the dignity, theoretical if not actual, of upper classmen. It was for us to make the Freshman Rules and to impose their observation. Our brains were agitated as to whether we should prescribe green or red caps for tin new men. Thus, throughout the early fall, friendly force was used to maintain or revive tin Fordham spirit. I hen we had “smokers," evening affairs, something given to benefit the A. A. or tin St. incent de Paul Society and then again given with no more altruistic purpose than mutual enjoyment. Again the football season, games won, games lost. Some of us out cheering, some of us not. So was the Christmas season stalled with a preliminary round of t« ts and then two short weeks of joyous forgetfulness. January saw us re-climbing tin Auditorium steps and February brought that necessary antidote for the mid-term exams—the Junior Prom, which this year set a new standard of excellence. Now appeared that dissatisfaction, that impatience with winter's senility shown by the slush of melting snow and ice. We wanted the balmy days of Spring. We preferred to watch the first appearance of a single blade of grass than the most magnificent blizzard. The time came to watch the ball games and tennis mate be-. Two members of our class, Vincent Cavanaugh and Jack Garrity, made tin ball team and represented the Sophomores upon the ‘'diamond." From the begrimed windows of the Chemistry Lab. we could look wistfully out and count the minutes, until the bell brought release. The June of Sophomore year really marked the end of an epoch. The classical studies were finished, laid aside and their places taken by a subject called Philosophy. Just why Sophomore year slipped by so quickly is hard to answer. Perhaps it was because things lacked tin appearances of novelty they had the year before. We were more confident in ourselves, knew our way about better. The way of the transgressor may be hard, but that of a collegiate Froissard is much harder. How is he, simple soul, to recount the stories ol athletic events and social affairs, in a manner new and invigorating? Where is he to find paradoxes with which to soothe his readers? Pull them out of the thin air, like Howard Thurston, answer the frivolous, but the experienced nod in sympathy. This is the problem we face, not boldly, but humbly, in telling the deeds of Junior year. It is the most important period of one’s college course. Already the Seniors seem to be merging into the varied activities of the outside world. Their time is nearly over, their record made. I heir chances for success or failure are almost finished. The Maroon is their farewell gesture. But the Juniors have a “Prom" to think of. rings to decide upon, a president of the A. A. to nominate. And to these have we devoted this year. Now is the time to let chronological order depart and to plunge into the middle of things; into the night of February ninth, nineteen hundred and twenty-three. It is the night of the Junior ‘ Prom." Our “Prom." For a week previous, the Committee, headed by Richard Conley, had been at work 137seeking to make this affair equal, and mayhap, surpass, any previous one. It was not something limited to Juniors, something which had interest for the members of one class only. The whole college would have representatives at the Biltmore, and the Ford ha in banners would hang in the glittering ballroom. And success attended our efforts. The spirit that permeated the festive crowd, could only augur one thing and new laurels were added to Fordham. But during these three years were there no dramatics? Of course there were. Actors like John Masterson, Richard O'Brien and James Carroll were making their reputations. The “Workshop" and the “Mimes and Mummers" were giving them opportunities to show their talents. The splendid production of “Henry 111 proved where available dramatic ability lay, both in well-trained leading men and in versatile stage-bands. And so the year is coining to an end; an end looked forward to with regret rather than relief. We are wearing our new acquired rings, whose design gave us so much food for thought hack in February. Should we have seal rings or a stone, plain or engraved, was the question lo be solved. And each type of ring had its vociferous adherents. Finally we were all satisfied and took cheerfully what we got. And thus were tin main activities of the Junior class concluded. We loo k forward to another year. Whether it will glow with college spirit or take on the pale and sickly hue of indifference depends upon us. The class must choose. It has sent men into the games and into the grandstands. To keep them there is our joh. And here the history of the class of nineteen hundred and twenty-four is not ended, but suspended. 138Jjl MAROO N 1 jH - Class Officers President.............................GERALD R.

X. listlessly put to paper can naught but move in glowing recognition of deeds nobly wrought. In the Fall of 1921. one hundred and sixty strong, the future scions of the glorious name of Fordham and 25, surveyed, many for the first time, the venerable halls and inviting pathways of Rose Hill. Because of the fact that the class ol 25 was tin largest in the history of Fordham. also to follow the precedent et by the • lasses of two preceding years, it was divided into sections A. I». and C. Father Gaynor, S.J.. lectured in Latin. Father Fremgcn tried t instill a love of old Grceee in variously inclined minds, as well as expounding the mysteries of religion to sections B and C. Mr. Gannon. S.J.. proved that in all poetry there was a ‘"noble emotion." even in that of Wordsworth. The versatile and very human Mr. McGary, S.J.. led the. class through the delights of Moliere and Racine and the horrible labyrinths of "'trig" and “analyt." assisted in the latter by Messrs. Mnlry and Sitran. Father Bertollero, S.J.. introduced the Freshmen to the language of "old Madrid" and the land of Don Quixote. Mr. Sitron assisted also in this department. The privilege of teaching section A to the basic truths of their faith was awarded to Father Steeller. S.J. Before many days had elapsed the lir t class meeting was held to elect olliceis. W hen the dust had settled and the turmoil of a mighty political battle echoed olT into silence, it was found that Hugh Holly had been entrusted to the helm of the "ship of state" of '25. “Dick" McAnany. the budding "Boss' Murphy of the Bronx, was his understudy to take the chair whenever he grew hoarse shouting "Order": the elongated and guileless "Hick" Atkinson was chosen to guide the funds, and to “Men" McCarthy was given the trying ordeal of selecting minutes from the turbulent gatherings of the class. Before long, however. Henry heard the siren call of the cinder path and obeyed it, leaving his work to the capable hands of Lee .Scully. The "bulk" of the class was soon to be seen in action on the gridiron. “Artie" Bricklev, brother of the famous “Charlie," gave proof that he had all the “stuff" in him which made his brother's name renowned; "Pete” Tliies, "the lovable meddler." and pugnacious "Dick" McAnany made holes for Bricklev to plunge through, while “Pol” Crowley and Paul Brennan, the inseparables, played havoc with their opponents. A unique innovation was born when candidates for Freshman football were called for. In spite of being handicapped by the lack of a coach and sparse equipment. the squad settled down to the grinding louliue of practice, and soon after, led by “Jerry" Fitzgerald, sallied forth into the surrounding country to harass, if not always to vanquish, the teams of our neighboring schools. "Jerry," “Yin" McPeak. and the grave and corpulent "Axel' Kenney were the luminaries oi the outfit. The first social event to be given under the auspices of '25 was a smoker in Alumni Mall on the seventeenth of December. The committee. “Ed" McShane. Neary. O'Shea, and “Bill” Howley, worked hard and faithfully, and the affair was a “howling success” (especially the singing of the Frosh Quartet—Kenney, Dietz, Fitzgerald. and “Slim” HopkinsL and everybody undergraduates and faculty—went away feeling satisfied with the movies and entertainment and satiated with the “juicy, succulent, life-giving doughnut. 1421 t | M A RJ) O N | A ' Immediately upon returning from the Christmas holidays the class once more plunged into the social whirl, this time with a dance at the Motel Pennsylvania on the evening of January sixth. Maurice O'Shea was chairman of the committee, and, to use a proletarian expression, it was “a bird of a shindig.'' The guests crawled avva to their homes on the morning of the seventh, weary, hut -till smiling, and ready for more of that same type of amusement. I pon the beginning of the second term in February new officers were to be elected. Hugh Holly was no longer with us, so the new president elected was “V incc McPcak, and a noble legislator he has since proven to be. “Hill" Curran captured the vice-presidency after a wild and breathless chase; “Hen" McCarthy was made guardian of the funds, and Lee Scully, that good and faithful servant «»f his constituents. was unanimously re-elected to the Secretarial incumbency. The call for candidates for basketball brought to the light of day many a hidden gem lurking in tin modest retirement of the class. “Pol Crowley, “l.oos McNamee, and “Chollie" Germaine were “in there fighting” all of the time and contributed a lot to the success of the club, which attained a high place in the ranking of Eastern college basket-tossers. “Tex” Landry led his Freshman quintet to many a hard earned victory, inspired by the brilliant performing of his team-mates; Seagrave. O'Connell, and Leddy bore the brunt of the work. Among the more scholarly lines of collegiate endeavor ’25 gained prominence by the fruitful work of its poets, dramatists, journalists, and orators. The pages of “The Monthly" were each month embellished and made more literary by the work of Frank Walsh, “Ed” Burke “Jim" Sheridan, “Ed" Lyman and a host of lesser lights. Paramount in Fordham dramatics was the “Freshman Workshop." Who can ever forget the magnificent “Heat" by “Jim" Conoagh, which drew the usually stolid and passive audience of Keith's “Fordham" to its feet, wildly applauding, on Fordham night at the Fordham Road playhouse? Then there was Paul Collins "Yellow the dramatic production of a very fertile brain; nor ran we forget the works of Godfrey Schmidt and “Jim" Sheridan in the historical field. In the “Mimes and Mummers," Martin Mannix was superb, but even his wonderful acting barely overshadowed that of “Snow-shoe” Neil O’Connor, "Ed” Lyman. John Mitchell and “Matey” Hunter. The Ram was made a better paper hv the addition of “Leo'’ Trotter and “Tom” Ryan to its stall, and more power was given to the Council of Debate by the work of “Ed" Hogan. McAnifl', Gibson, and Mannix. The class of '25 ended a very successful and productive Freshman vear to the tune of the “hails” to “Vince” McPcak. catching a steady game for the Varsity baseball club, and the admiring plaudits for “Hud" Culloton’s yearling nine, winning game after game, with here and there a sobering, but necessary, defeat interspersed. Twas quite a vear, boys, quite a year. Any and each individual of 25 will graciously admit that the class “went big” during Freshman; but for results obtained and objectives attained Sophomore year went even “bigger.” Du ring Soph year the class remained divided into three sections. Father Oates, S.J., led three sections of expert jockeys over the steeplechase paths of Tacitus and Juvenal, also being engaged in making Normal Men, through the medium of Evi- fence». out of the raw material offered by sections B and C. Father raaffe.S. J exerted all his efforts to make Christian theologians out of the men of section A, and lectured to the entire class on various branches of English. Father Nrdler, the inimitable, managed, peculiarly, to teach Creek for the whole year without acquiring a solitary grav hair. Mr. Lynch. S.J., lectured throughout the course in Mechanics, and l)r. Sherwin made clear the mysteries of chemical phenomena. Immediately after settling down, having become inured to the exalted station in college life of Sophomore, the class assembled in solemn conclave to elect officers. Vincent McPeak was chosen President, John McAniff was named to assist McPeak in the rdlc of Vice-President while “lien” McCarthy and “l-ee" Scully were asked to continue in the offices they held in freshman, McCarthy as I reasurer and S«ull as Secretary. Such is the reward of work well done, wc might say. So quickly does time wing its wav through the void ol Collegiate existence that, before the class realized Summer had ceased to be, the football season was well on its way. Among the dusty and grime-smeared faces of our gridiron warriors daily could be seen a host of sturdy Sophomores. Fighting silently and grimly on the end was ‘'Jerry” Fitzgerald. Close beside him at tackle loomed the ponderous “Joe” Bill, while at center, the hot box of line struggling and the apex of the line plunging phalanx. Paul Brennan of live fiery locks dared all opponents to break through. “Pol” Crowley played a wonderful game at the end opposite hitzgerald until an injured knee forced him off the squad. In one of the guard positions “Dick McAnany thrust his bulky “corporation." and few were the enemies who managed to sneak through the slim space Richard left on either side of him. In the back-field such men as “ inre” McPeak. “Tom Malone. Ralph O'Connell and “Bill Howley gained ground for Fordham and glory for themselves by their pluck and speed. It might well he added here that tin team representing the class of 21 made a name for itself by defeating the much-heralded Freshman eleven by the score of 6-0. In this game “Axel" Kenney and “Nathan" Towey, Ear! of Katonah and Squire of “Library-step . Manor." surprised the crowd, the Frosh team, and themselves by their consummate knowledge of the finer points of the game and by their nerve and spirit. “Tex" Landry made the touchdown, aided and abetted In the work of the two last named. On the night of November seventh, one thousand nine hundred and twentv-tuo. Election Night, to be explicit, every sturdy oak of the class appeared at the Astor. accompanied by his own clinging vine. Dancing was the order of the evening, and from ‘ P. M. until A. M. the festive foot was shaken with all the abandon which belongs to carefree youth and exuberant spirits. All those who remember the occasion were lavish in the praise of “Jerry'' O'Brien and his dance committee. Again the class ol 2.1 had triumphed—another feather in its cap. metaphorically speaking. I he scaring flame of mid-year examinations came as a damper upon the enthusiasm created in weary breast.- by .i trip home to the folks and the mysteries and excitements attendant to lule-lide. and. after raging for a week in the ranks of the class, passed on. taking with it a very negligible percentage. MAROO N 1 M r - Kgs TV — ■ The lust official class business lor the new term to be settled was the election ol officers. “Jerry" Fitzgerald easily received enough voles to assure him of the goodwill and undivided loyalty of the class and its pride to have him as president; “Joe” Dunn, that mysterious habitue of the Concourse and week-end demon, was elected Vice-President: “Bill" How ley, knight of the road and keeper of the peace at the “Castle.” found himself in the unenviable position of secretary; and “Hen” McCarthy, indefatigable and zealous worker that he is. was for the second time unanimously re-elected to nurture the growth of the meagre treasury. Amidst this bustle and hubbub of political warfare an echo, faint at first, but ever increasing in sound and volume, came wafted from the basketball court. “Tex" Landry was being touted by newspaper writers as one of the best forwards in the East: “Fuff" I ..eddy was easily out-jumping all his opponents at center; Ralph O'Connell was giving remarkably plucky exhibitions of guarding: while “Jack” McMahon was a fit team-mate for the flashing “Tex." A great portion of whatever success the Maroon quintet achieved must be credited in all fairness, to the work of the men of 25. In reading this account one must not be led by the writer’s garrulity in telling of athletic prowess into believing that the Sophomore class boasts merely of sterling athletes. Frank Walsh continues to be one of the supporting pillars of the Monthly. Poem after poem Hows from his pen in undiinmed lustre and clarity, nor does he hesitate to sink from the sublimity of poetry to the refreshing absurdity of the “Antidote"; each month its pages scintillate with brilliant gems of verse libre from the hand of "Jim" Sheridan; “Ed” Burke is turning out clever short stories, and Pierre Marique has recently broken into print. Godfrey Schmitt, this year devoting more of his time to the Thespian branch of the dramatic art than to play writing, gave a uniquely realistic interpretation of “Wolsey” in “Henry III." and “Ed” Lyman was very well received for his characterization of “Tom Winward" in “Allison's Lad." Among others who gained the approval of both critic and audience during the theatrical year were John Hargrove, Walter Slattery. John Manning. Frank Walsh. "Harry" Hush, and “Snow-shoe" O'Connor. In debating circles. “Ed” Hogan is eloquently adding renown to his name and lustre to the class escutcheon, ably assisted by Me An iff and "Ed" Gilson. It would be an unpardonable omission to neglect to say a few words about the men of "25 who are on the baseball team that is now striving hard for I'ordham. " ince” McPeak is back at his old catching position, “Jack McMahon is ably holding down the “hot corner,” while out in the garden the fine playing of Ralph O’Connell and “Tom” Malone is conspicuous. From the lowly origin of coerced Freshman has arisen the shining star of Sophomore fame and opulence. It is enough to say that a class that has progressed as much as- '25 has in two short years cannot fail to touch the Himalyan peaks of enduring value and service to old Rose Hill in the remaining years of its career as a composite class of undergraduates. This is by no means a prediction, it is a pre-assured fact. “Thus endeth the lesson.” 145F R E SHMAN CLASSMAROON Piesident ■ • Vice-President Secretary ■ -Treasurer - • Historian - - Class Officers ..........JAMES P.

MILLER History of the Class of 1926 TO those readers who can turn with a kindred interest from the Senior to the Freshman, we present this history of the class of '26. As that graduating class is the flower of Fordham, so is the yearling class the hud. That hud. however. is merely a promise, and as the casual eye is wont to disregard it, we must ask for it an indulgence of consideration until its petals are spread to the world and the promise of the bud fulfilled. 1«MAROON When, early in September. the arim of the “Frosh Iirsl stormed the Memorial Gate, two hundred and eighty-seven pairs of modest feet Iirsl followed the windings of the elm-lined path. At liie end of the twisting road, all Fordluim awaited with welcoming hands the largest class in the eighty-one years ol its hallowed existence; of this great number, one hundred and sixty-seven entered the A.B. course, while one hundred and twenty aspired to science. The faculty, however, was well prepared. and the unwieldv horde was divided into three legions, but with the same advantages, for our leaders alternated in commanding the raw recruits. Father Gaynor. S.J.. masterfully led u- through Home and taught us the tongue of the Latins, then under Father Fremgcn. S.J.. we mounted the might) mausoleums of the ancient Creek- and read their epitaphs, and fell with them in their tragedies, the keenness of their emotions. W hen Mr. Gannon. S.J.. took command, we conquered the Fnglish and the Mother Tongue i- fast becoming till more beaulilul to us with a beauty hitherto unknown. Father Sledlar. S.J.. gave the arim its religion, and though we never doubted the veracilv of that faith, we an continually burdened with proofs of it. To he successful, an army must he scientific and efficient, and Mr. Shields stepped into the breach and taught us trigonometry from ever) angle. Father Deane, S.J.. has supplied us with Outlines of History that rival Mr. Wells" work of the same name. Mr. Cardon and Mr. Green assumed the task of teaching us French, while Mr. Cintron led his ambitious unit against the Spanish. We found also awaiting us a set of Freshman caps and rules compiled by Sophomores for our betterment, but. fairly enough, with them came a clause ol their dispensation if we should win three of live athletic contests, freshman won the first, a boxing tournament held at the Smoker tendered to us by the Harvester Club, but Sophomore was victorious in the inter-class football game by one touchdown, triumphant again in the tug-o-war by much avoirdupois, and when the reckoning of the Inter-Mural Meet was made, it was found that Junior had won by a safe majority and Sophomore was second over Freshman by one place. Thus the fifth contest was unnecessary and Freshman realized that their discipline had conic to la so we m| out with an obvious good-will to win our laurels in spite of the restraint. A competent staff of officers was soon elected. “Jim" McGeough was chosen IVe-idenl. and although he hailed from Pawtucket he became naturalized and lived it down so satisfactorily that the class of "26 still boasts of the wisdom of their choice. "Kcd Hummer of these environs was made ice-President. and "Jack" Quinn, alwavs far ahead of the collection basket, became the envied custodian of the I reasuiy. flic office of Secretary was best lilted for “Joe" Fcrrone and be lias ever 'ince diligent!) transcribed our efforts. II we bad known these men for years instead of hours, we could scarcely have made a wiser selection and at the mid-term polls, these same officers were unani-moiisU re-elected as furthei ami convincing proof of their executive ability. Once again the need of a Freshman Constitution was felt, and McGeough re-ponded to the call ami with great effort and no waste of words presented it to 150 ROON the class. So satisfactory was it in every respect that only one -mall amendment was made and it was practically accepted as a whole. But the class and its officers did not await idly the completion of their statute. When football and track accounted for the plodding ol cleats and spikes in the Bronx air. our president responded by winning a position and letter on the varsih football team, and with Hummer achieved again the coveted T on the track. Woerner, B. S.. 26, distinguished himself on the varsity, ami freshman boasts of three Letter Carriers. Bruton. Chester and Hose also made the Varsity squad. There were other footballers, however, in 20, over a score of them, and the Freshman team was organized on which Captain Griffin, Massinger and Marcotle starred, and future varsity material was unearthed. So loyal was the showing ol these men that twenty-one were awarded their class numerals. Then Jack Frost decreed that Freshman triumphs he indoors, and when basketball arrived the Frosh greeted it by displaying one ol the fastest court aggregations in the city and in the history of hordham. At the close ol a most successful season, we realized that ten men had earned their numerals and although a resume ol the stars would he a roll-call of tin- squad, we venture to say that lb»hun, Grainger. McMahon and Irish especially distinguished themselves. It was at this period, immediately after the Christmas holidays when the Sophomores revoked the rules which they had imposed on us. There was no urge for thus c ommuting our sentence—it was done through evident good-will and f rcshiuan appreciated the sportsmanship that was displayed. There had never been a real enmity between the two classes, but rather a frieudh livalry, and we are greatly indebted to them inasmuch as the Sophomores had set iis an example, the emulation of which brought forth our best efforts. Later, in the course of events, the indoor track called Fordham to attention. At flic famous Fordham Diamond Meet, the Freshman team conquered the University and finished first in the inter-class relay. Good old fighting names had the victors, McGcough, Hammer. Harrington and L. Ahern, the Li t named of whom has played on all four Freshman teams. Freshman triumphs, however, were not all athletic. In the social sphere, they were also maiked, typical of Fordham’s high standard, and the annual I reshman dance was arranged by a committee consisting of Hammer. Liegey, Bergen and Murray. It was held at Sherry’s on the twenty-sixth of January and was supported, we may mention, with thanks, by all classes. Many were the notables of fordbam whose presence spoke well of their confidence in Freshman's social -talus, and when “Boh" Fallon’s orchestra rang the curfew all loo soon, the f reshmen were better known among themselves and happily—to others. The Junior Prom, and in fact, all of Fordham’s social activities have found Freshman support and I reshman good-will. The Harvester Club counts among its valued members many yearlings who have sacrificed their lime and ellorts to aid that helpful organization in its worthy work. In literary fields, also, has the class made great strides. The Ram, fordham’s weekly publication, has achieved great results from the four f rosh on it- stall, and 151llie Monthly, loo, is greatly enriched l the many offerings of their productive pens. Of all Freshman contributors “Jim" McCabe was "facile princeps," a burbling poet from whom great things are expected. His "Night Riders’’ in the March number, and "Junk Song” in the April issue, attracted much attention in the college literary circle. The most priceless jewel, however, in the Freshman crown was won for her by "Dick Fov. In a competitive examination on the Ars Poetica, in which were entered close to a thousand Frosh of the Jesuit Colleges of the East. "Dick" brought Fordham lirsl honors with the astounding mark of 96 per cent, and "Jim" McCabe's rating was 95. When rehearsals began for the Vaisily Play, the Class of '26 again showed its loyalty and spirit. No less than sixteen first year men donned the mask and high buskin in a great thespian achievement and performed most laudably for our edification and the applause of satisfied audiences. Robert Peters in the leading feminine role was a charming young lady, and Murphy, Grainger, Rose. Ferronc and McGeough cooperated in giving all a most pleasant evening in which dramatic mastery was added to the growing list of Freshman versatility. With the coming of Spring, the Frosh, like Alexander of old, have ventured forth in search of more athletic worlds to conquer, and have set up as their standard the trusty bludgeon and misfit glove. Thirty-five exponents of the national game displayed their wares for the edification of their Alma Mater. At this writing, they have played only one game, the stififest of their schedule, in which their battle-cry rang forth through Jersey jungles, but they came back unscathed and victorious with a well-earned triumph, in which the ever-present Ahern and Rohan starred. A chronicle of Freshman achievement is limited only by space, and as the school year draws to a welcomed close, it finds us with spirit undaunted and with never a flagging moment in the aggression with which our entrance was marked. Though outnumbers are a trifle diminished, our courage is not depleted, and though the ranks are thinned by the absence of those who fell in the onslaught of the Mid-Terms, there still remains a gallant fighting force that will enroll great glories in the annals of Fordham. that will venture far with their colors flying and return with a banner, "Success."MAROON •«— Officers of Mimes ami .Mummers President - • 'ire President Secretary • ■ Treasurer - - Stage Manager SYLYESTER J.

Look hack, it you will, over the record of fifty odd years of Fordham plays and you will find that every Varsity production has been something worth while. It K then, with pardonable pride that we of the Class of 1923 point to our record of four years and draw attention to the fact that without exception, each year's performance has been representative of what we have come to expect of a I niversity. and what our Iriends outside have come to expect of Fordham. The season of 1919-'20 witnessed George M. Cohan’s "Seven Keys to Baldpate," under the direction of Mr. Daniel J. Sullivan. S.J.. the Moderator. In the east we find "Bill” McNulty in the role of Old Quimby. and “Syl" Kiddy as Jack Bentley, the owner of Baldpate. Back stage were “Billy'' Dean. Master of Props, and “Pat" Ryan. This was the occasion of “Pat’s famous hunt lor “sky-hooks. The following year marked the advent of Mr. Robert I. Gannon, S.J.. as Moderator of the Society. He selected Rostand s “I. Mglon." to he the Varsity production of that year. In the title rfde made famous by Sarah Bernhardt and Maud Adams. Harr) Lawrence, 22, as the Duke ol Reichstadt. deserves special mention. In this vear we find five members of tin Class of '23 officers of the Association: “Syl” Kiddy, Treasurer; Charles Kcnna, Business Manager; Frank Fahey, cx-'23. Stage Manager; John McLaughlin. Asst. Stage Manager: and “Billy” Dean, Master of Properties. In the cast for the same year were Charles Kenna, Frank Leslie. Gerald Galloway, cx-’23. “Artie" Boutot and “Syl Kiddy. In 1921-"22. “She Stoops to Conquer." or “The Mistakes of a Night." was the attraction; and what an attraction it was! In the role of "Tony Lumpkin, "Jack Masterson, '21. was responsible “for the best piece of comedy work seen on the Fordham stage in the memory of the present generation." Nor must we forget the “Kate llardcastle” of “Bill " Sullivan, ex-’23. our beloved “Queen." “George Hastings” was played by “Syl" Liddv. To “Fred" Finnegan, 21, and “Jim" Carroll, 21. in the parts of “Young Marlow” and “Squire Hardcastle,” respectively, is due much praise for their splendid work. “Bill" Dean was Stage Manager; John McLaughlin, Asst. Stage Manager, and “Pat" Ryan, Master of Wardrobes. It was during this season that the title “Mimes and Mummers " was adopted as the official name of the society. Our final year finds “Syl Kiddy, the sole survivor of Baldpate, President »l the Association, with John McLaughlin, Treasurer, and “Bill) Dean again Stage Manager. The productions for the yeai were Shakespeare’s “Ilenry VIII.” and “Allison’s Lad,” a one-act play by Benia Marie Dix. The title role of “Henry III was played by “Jack" Masterson. ’24. ably assisted hv “Dick" O'Brien. 21, as “Cardinal Wolsey.” As the “Duke of Norfolk,” “Syl Kiddy rounded out 155" t MARjpON I his fourth year of dramatics at Fordhain. Deserving of special mention is the work of Mark Crowley, '21, as “Queen Catherine,” and that of Godfrey Sclunidl, '25. who understudied O Brirn as “Wolscy." I he settings for this jjlay, as in the preceding ones, were superh another tribute to tlie genius of Mr. Gannon, S. J., who designed them. The electrical effects were especially deserving of comment and were due in no small part to the efforts of Paul Turnan. P.M., '23, ably assisted by “Jack” Loehle, '21. The east of “Allison's Lad was as follows: “Coi. W in. Strickland,” Frederick T. Finnegan, 21; “Capt. George Hover,” Geodfrey P. Schmidt, ’25; “Lieut. Robert Goring,” Robert N. Rose. '26; “Tom W inwood.' James J. Carroll, '21 fand Edward 13. Lyman, '25, as understudy i: “Col. John Drummond.'’ James P. McGeough, ‘26. Once again the performances of “Fred” Finnigan, as the old Colonel, and “Jim” Carroll as “Allison’s Lad,” were the outstanding bits of acting. No account of Fordham Dramatics would be complete without a word about the Playshop and the Freshman Workshop. Both of these Organizations were founded last year under Mr. Gannon’s direction for the purpose of writing and producing original one-act plays in conjunction with the Mimes and Mummers. Five such plays were written, directed and presented by the members of these organizations. This year, seventeen plays have been written, and it is the intention of the Rev. Moderator to have at least six of these produced publicly before the close of the school year. Fifteen men recently received pins in recognition of their services to the association. and it is the intention of the Society to award these pins annually to those of her members who distinguish themselves by signal efforts. These pins were designed In Mr. Gannon and are undoubted!} the best looking of any on the Campus. Briefly we have reviewed the part the Class of ‘2 ? has played in the last four years. May our successors carry on where we leave off and may they never lower the standard that has so long been maintained, and so worthily upheld during our time by Mr. Gannon, to whom, in the final analysis, all credit is due. 156 X maroon ! !■»——— II ZfZ- Editor-in-chief: Howard M.

Jr The Ford ham Monthly I ORDHAM’S contribution to the field of journalistic endeavor had its ineep-lion in 1853. precisely seventy years ago, when a copy of the "Goose Quill appeared. This was followed in succession by three different -Indent journals under the respective titles of the 'Sem.' “Collegian." and “The Spy." The climax of these early literary efforts resulted in the publication of the Fordham Monthly in 1 182. In that year, under the able leadership of Francis Dwight Dowley, the first editor-in-chief, the initial ropy of the Fordhani Monthly appeared. On the staff of editors in those first difficult years w« re two men who in large measure contributed much to its early success Dr. James Y Butler, the well-known physician and Dr. Janies J. Walsh, the brilliant man of letters. It i an inspiring chapter in the history of student endeavor at Fordham to read through the old files of the Fordham Monthly. I he first literary attempts of men who today are active in the field of letters, statecraft, or other activities, decorate the simple pages of the literary maga .ine. There was Francis P. Donnelly, now Rev. F. P. Donnelly. S. J., writing in 1887: and in the same year appeared the poetry of T. A. Daley whose name today is blazoned in larger and in brighter letters. Then, there appeared the names of Hon. Martin H. Glynn in 189.3, Representative Coring VI. Block in 1907, and Cyril l». Eagan in 1911. We could linger long and earnestly on the names of Ford ham's sons who once penned poems, stories and essays in the Fordham Monthlv; but we must leave such a delightful task to those who have the space and time that must needs he allotted to such a theme. It is for us merely to point out the traditions that cling to the pages of the Fordham Monthly a- the ivy vine clings to the high tower wall. And it was such traditions that the class of 2.3 were called upon to uphold. How well they have fulfilled their task, the plaudits of intercollegiate exchanges may well testify. We shall merely individualize the well-won honors. In Sophomore. two men of 23 broke into print and since then, side by side, they have won new laurels for their Alma Mater's literary paper. Howard Woods startled the college literary world with his beautiful, familiar nature studies. Ili literary qualifications won for him an honor that it has been the privilege of but few to attain, namely, the appointment as editor-in-chief while in Junior. As editor-in-chief he enlarged the scope of the Fordhani Monthly and gave to those of us who labored as associate editors on hi- staff the necessary inspiration and encouragement to follow his well-made plans. Working with Howard Woods in the capacity of assistant editor-in-chief. Frank Leslie added his -hare of stories, poems, and literary essays and well seconded the literary genius of his friend, the never-to-be-forgotten “Dutch" Panuch. Among the associate edilois. Patrick Ryan and "Sy I" Liddy have courted the muses and given us -parkling gems of real poetic worth. And we might mention the splendid work of Allred Boser along the line of historical essays. 15CIn the department of spoils. “Jack' Curley, veteran reporter and journalist, has always filled his athletic column with news of tin arsity sport prowess. On the business stall, we have also a man who had been given a rare honor— “IJill" McNulty. Acting as circulation manager in Sophomore, his business sagacity led to his appointment as business manager in Junior. And for two years he has placed the Fordham Monthly on a sound financial basis. And at times he has left his business office to join the editorial stall by contributing essays of great merit and worth. John Mulvey, as advertising manager and John McManus, as alumni circulation manager complete the list of the men of '23 on the staff. Others in the class have contributed at times—“Joe" Weed with his college stories. Sheerin with his poems and “Jim" McKaigney with essays. Such. then, completes the history of the class of '23 s connection with the Fordham Monthly. Certainly, no matter what is the past or future, we have the satisfaction of having given our best efforts to edit our college magazine. Outwork is but past history, merging into the tradition that has blazed the way loi over forl years in the publication of the Fordham Monthly. May those who succeed us “carry on"!STAFF of “THE RAM” Editor-in-Chiel John E. Devlin, ’23 Managing Editor George A. News Editor Joseph l Val. '21 Associate Editors Sylvester J. Lidia. ’23 George J.

Professor of Journalism, the Junior Class launched a weekly publication under the fitting name. The Ram—after the college mascot. The honor of being the first Editor fell to the lot of Paul O'Keefe, 19. and great credit should he given to him and his associates for the great work that they did. ith the following year came the . A. f. and though the difficulties surrounding the “Rain’s” publication were enormous, still the work went on. Rut with the dissolution of the S. A. T. C. in 191 5. evil days fell upon the paper. A large part of the stall failed to return t«» college, and because of additional unfortunate circumstances it was deemed best to discontinue the “Ram lor a time. During the following three years the university continually enlarged, and the need of a mode of communication between the different schools was being felt more and more. Then suddenly in the Fall of '21 the “Rain" sprang into existence again, once more sponsored by the Juniors, aided b the advice and counsel of Father Treacy. S.J.. and Father Cox. .S.J. The duties of Editor fell upon the shoulders of John E. Devlin, ’23, and those of Business Manager were assumed by Charles F. Keuna, 23. The difficulties of those first weeks can hardh be described, but as soon as some sort of system was injected into the new enterprise the burden lightened considerably. The warm welcome given the “Ram. together with the students’ firm support, proved that the “Ram" had filled a real need in the college life, and so its publication was continued this year. The editorial lines still remained in the hands of “Jack Devlin, 23. but due t » the resignation ol Charles Kcnna. 23, the title of Business Manager passed to Andrew Kennedy, ’21. Father Cox, S.J.. remained as moderator, but the services of Father I reaev. S.J.. were lost upon his transfer to the staff of “America.” The “Ram has gone through many stages of development until now it has taken its place cs a representative college weekly, capable of not suffering from comparison with other journals of like nature. It has witnessed the dawn of a new era at Fordham, the beginning of a better and brighter section of her history, but it will go on and on striving ever to attain the ideals it cherishes and to play its part in the development of Fordham into the foremost Catholic college of the country. 161COl NCIL 01 DEBATE President. - • Vice-President Secretary ■ • Treasurer ■ -Censor ■ • Officers • • - GEORGE KENYON. 23 - • J MES McK MONEY. ‘23 • - FRANCIS J.

I It had its inception in the fall of 1920 and since that time has grown to great extent not only in its membership but in its many activities. I In-Harvester Club was instituted to help the work of the Foreign Missions and the furtherance of this purpose has been the work of it' members for the past three years. Former activities of the club have already been chronicled. It is our task to narrate merely its doings of the present year. Last tall election of oUlcers was held and Thomas M. Keresey, ’23, was elected president with George Brooks, ‘21. and John F. Gradv. '2.3, as vice-president and secretary-treasurer, respectively. The club get to work immediately and a hug smoker was held from which was realized over two hundred dollars. Eighteen schools were visited by the members and in this way the question of the Foreign Missions was brought before the eyes of the city at large. This spring, a tea dance, held at the Bit . Carlton Hotel was undertaken in conjunction with the other colleges of the Metropolitan district and was considered bv all to be most successful both socially and financially. When speaking of the Harvester Club, one person must not be forgotten. The Harvester Club owes ifs origin and all that it may have achieved to its moderator. Rev. Mr. Robert I. Gannon. S.J.

But on March 2.'i, 1921 there was organized a club for the exclusive purpose ot promoting biological research among its members; for according to Rule Seven of its Constitution, “Every member must offer a biological report or paper at least once a year." In its desire to honor John Gregor Mendel, one of the greatest biologists l all time, the club chose the name, “The Mendel Club of Fordham I diversity." At the first formal meeting of the club the Reverend Edward P. Tivnan. S. J.. President of Fordham and Honorary President of the new organization, began a series of three lectures on Medical Ethics. Upon returning to school in September, 1921 the club was reorganized and began a year of uninterrupted success; the outstanding features being a conceit and dance held on Tuesday, February 21. 1922 and flu occasion of tin publication in May of the first scientific bulletin recording student laboratory investigations ever published by a Catholic School in this country, “The Biological Bulletin of The Mendel Club of Fordham University.” Favorable criticisms of this edition were later received from many colleges both in America and abroad. During the present year the members of the club, under the supervision of Reverend Gustav A. Caballero, S. J.. the founder and untiring director, are exerting every effort to produce a bulletin which will excell the original. The Mendel Club has already reflected much credit upon Fordham, and as the two great aims of the club are to develop a deep fraternal spirit among all members, both past and present, and to publish each year a larger and belter Bulletin, it shows every inclination of becoming one of the great institutions of our Alma Mater. 167 Officers First Prefect....................................HOWARD M.

In loll, when the Jesuit community there moved to Fordham, the Sodality came with them, and has flourished ever since, until now it is one of Ford ham's foremost institutions, lor more than fifteen years it has been under the direction of the Rev. Father Francis I). O’l.aughlin, S.J., whose skillful guidance and whole-hearted efforts for betterment have been responsible for its success in recent years. The activities of the Sodality center around the weekls meeting, where the devotions are conducted by the prefects, elected from among the members. Here, also, is given a short talk by the Director on an appropriate subject. During the month of May, daily devotions are. held before the statue of tin- Blessed Virgin in the quadrangle, where the entire student bod convenes to sing hymns in her honor, and at which a member of the graduating class gives a brief address on some topic pertaining to our Blessed Mother. Toward the close of the year is held the annual reception, at which the Reverend Father Rector ofliciales. when all who have qualified for the privilege during the year are publicly received into the Sodality. The memory of the many happy moments spent in the religious exercises of the Sodality will remain with us, a constant influence to good, when we have passed beyond the walls of Fordham into a world where forgetfulness of God is fashionable and self-centered struggle for gain is deemed praiseworthy. 1 hen. it not before, we shall have reason to be thankful that we have invoked the patronage and guidance of Mary, most powerful of advocates, that we may be guided aright by her through all the vicissitudes of life to our final haven of rest. 169ST.

S.J. 170MAR OON St. Vincent De Paul Society y.RHAPS the most consistently hardworking organization on tin campus is the Conference of St. Vincent De Paul. A society whose prime motive is charity and the relief of the needy, it lias performed splendid work in recent years, and deserves a special commendation. The work of this organization is of such a nature that it comes but seldom to the strict notice of the average student, yet the accomplishments which we know the St. Vincent De Paul to have performed are short of remarkable. 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. This year Mr. Edward Donnelly succeeded Fr. Philip J. Debold. S.J., as moderator of the society, and by helpful suggestion and advice has rendered valuable aid to the Conference. Hospitals visited, comfort and cheer brought to the sick, catechism classes instructed, clothes meted out to the poor—these and countless similar deeds arc but the everyday routine of St. Vincent De Paul activities. 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 allord some religious instruction to the unfortunate inmates. Indeed it can be said undoubtedly that a great portion of the credit due the Fordham Conference of St. Vincent De Paul should properly be given to John F. McManus, '23, the president and guiding figure in the society for the past three years. The noble acts of this man are legion and the honor brought to Fordham by his personal endeavor is surpassed in no other line of activity. The Conference of St. Vincent De Paul is one of the University’s oldest established societies and if the past he taken as a criterion we are assuredly safe in predicting that many further years of splendid work will crown the glorious successes this organization has already gained. 171Officers of A.

As Coach I rank Gargan said in his address at the awarding of letters. “'This year’s team was sacrificed for future Fordham schedules. Ford-ham owes a great deal to Captain Tommy Meyers and his men and Fordham owes much too, to Frank Gargan, 09, who as coach whipped into shape a team composed almost entirely of new players and instilled into them the splendid morale and fighting spirit that has always been characteristic of Frank Gargan as long as he has appeared on Fordham Field. To “Tom Moriarity ol Georgetown, a member of Glenn Warner's All-Time, All-American eleven no small quantity of the success of this team is due. Mr. Moriarity is one of the best line coaches in the country and his work was finely exemplified by the men who received his instructions. 177In speaking, our inadequate words of praise for the accomplishments of the 1922-23 football team we feel that we are not doing so in the maudlin tones of exuberant undergraduate sentiment, but the fact is that we are mighty proud i the entire squad and shall not be in the least way hesitant to say so wherever the comparative merits of football teams are discussed. Added to this the class of 1923 alone feels quietly but surely proud of those of her sons who were members of the team. "Artie." Boutot as first string quarterback, showed a remarkable knowledge of field generalship, and his timel appearance on the field at a critical stage of the . 'i. I . game, in our humble opinion did more than anything else to save the day. the most important of the year. ‘‘Steve" Lesko was one of the stars and mainstays of the team, his superb playing and spectacular tackling contributed in no small measure to the strength of the line. “Dick" Hendrick, another "23 man who although not a regular was a very capable substitute, and got into several games. 1’he season was successfully opened at Fordham Field on the 30th of September when the Maroon defeated Cansius College before a crowd of 5,000 spectators by a score of 13 to 0. The game, from the viewpoint of an onlooker, was decidedly uninteresting and slow. Perhaps this was due to the torrid weather conditions which were better fitted lor baseball than football. However, the game gave significant indications, and indications of great promise to be sure, as to just the sort of a team Fordham was placing on the gridiron for the season of 1922-23. The line played splendidly, in fact, its playing bordered on the extraordinary when one considers how very early in the season it was lor a line to have developed to any sort of a perfective degree. Cansius made but two first downs, one of which came as the result of an oll'-side penalty, and the other a long forward pass. The first touchdown of the season was made bv Captain “Tommy” Meyers at the close of tlie first quarter by a spectacular run of thirty-five yards through the entire Cansius team. “Joe" Manning carried the hall over the line for the other touchdown in the second period by a five-yard off-tackle plunge. We believe that it will be many and many a day before those who witnessed the Fordham-Rutgers game will ever see another as thrilling. Outweighed, out-sized, out-lucked, everything but outfought, the Varsity went down to a glorious defeat that held very little consolation or spoils for the victors. The weather on this occasion as on the preceding Saturday was had for football. the game being played at New Brunswick during a tremendous thunder-shower that covered the field in a veritable ocean of mud. Rutgers was the first to score, making a touchdown after two minutes of play by a series of line-plunges. Frankly, Captain-Ei.f.ct I Ikai.kv 178at the start it looked entirely like a Rutgers' da all arouiul. hut to tin amazement of the crowd, when the Maroon came into possession of the ball they lore huge holes through the Rutgers’ line and marched gallantly down the field for a touchdown, Meyers going over the line. Rutgers scored again in the first quarter on a long forward pass and Fordham tied the score near the close of the second period when Healey scored on a pass from Meyers. Rutgers, aided by consistent gaining and line plunges of Captain Raul), went over for their third touchdown at the beginning of the third quarter. At this juncture Rutgers was stopped—the game from then on was Fordham. The Maroon haokfield hurled themselves through the Scarlet line time after time; the entire team fought like a bunch of hungry wild-cats lor another touchdown—hut still the rain poured down in sheets, so that it seemed almost impossible to stand in the sloppy mud. But it took more than "Rain and Rutgers" to stop the Varsity at that time. Towards the close of the second period Healey and Fitzgerald threw Gibson. Rutgers’ fullback, for a safely. The last period found the Maroon cohorts tired hut still fighting. Hard luck and poor breaks robbed them of at least two opportunities to score, and Rutgers with the aid of a continued supply of fresh substitutes managed to prevent further scoring. The final score was 20 to !• , and if there is such a tiling as a moral victory, chalk up a big one for the Maroon. The Varsity, bruised and wearied from the gruelling struggle with Rutgers only five days previous, journeyed to Boston and received a 27 to 0 defeat at the hands ol Frank Cavanaugh's Boston College eleven. At the onset the Maroon made three successive first downs on line plunges, hut lost the ball by an unfortunate fumble. Boston College soon scored on a long pass from Darling to Comerford. The one bright spot in an otherwise dark afternoon, and the only consolation for the two hundred Fordham rooters who had travelled to Boston for the game was the remarkable playing of Captain “Tommy" Meyers. He was a strong factor on both the Maroon’s delense ami offense and the Boston papers praised his playing to a high degree. Georgetown came north for the annual fracas with a rather highly touted machine and went home a victor hut not so highly touted. The score was 2 to 1 », hut if was a victory the Blue and Gray will not he inclined to boast loudly about. In the first half Georgetown scored three touchdowns on one first down—the score 179 » t ' Coach Frank Gakcan" a M A R_P ON coming from fumbles bv the Maroon backfield. But for their mistakes at the beginning the game undoubtedly would have been Ford ham's. One of the salient features ol the afternoon was the wonderful playing on the part of “Steve Lesko and “Pat’ Sinead. “Steve'' broke through the line’ time after time to tackle the Blue and Gray backs for a loss, and Sinead playing with a broken linger was in on every play. The Maroon got back into its winning stride bv a 12 to 0 victory over Westminister. A victory by a much larger score was expected by Fordbam's supporters, blit there was much consolation in tin “find " of “Jaek" Ghanily. who went into the game lor the first time and b splendid playing earned himself a regular berth in the backfield for the rest of the season. Springfield took revenge for their unexpected defeat at the hands of tin- Maroon in 1921. by a 17 to 1 victory over the Varsity on the following Saturday. Fordhani. however, was considerably weakened by the absence of Captain Meyers and “Barney" Fallon who were confined to tin stands with injuries. On Flection Day, over at Ohio f ield, l ordham look up where it bad left oil eighteen venrs ago and scored a great I I to 0 victory over . 'i . I . I lie inlet scored in the first quarter on a long forward pass from res to Mow Icy. At the very beginning of the second period, however, the Varsity broke into the tallying column when “Tommy" Meyers intercepted a forward pass and ran sixty-five yards for a touchdown. Manning scored in the third period by a clever thirty-five yard run along the side lines. There was no question as to the decided superiority of Fordhani over M. . L . fhe Varsity scored fifteen first downs to five for the iolel. This fact can he taken as a tribute to both the play of the Varsity line and that of the hacks. I he individual efforts of Meyers and Manning, too, were far superior to anything that the l . U. hacks had to oiler. Tom Thrope, coach of the defeated N. V I . team, when interviewed a lew days after the game said that Meyers and Manning were as good as any backfield men he had seen all season, lie also highly praised the clean play of the Varsity. Fordhani, playing a brand of football which was far below that which characterized their play against X. V. I . were held to a 6 to 6 tic by Colby on Armistice Day. I lie game was the last home game of the season for Fordhani. On the following Saturday the Varsity, tired and worn out by its strenuous season, were outplayed in every department of the game by Holy Cross. I he Cross scored seven points in each of the four periods. I he kordham defeat by Holy Cross, though expected, was something unusual, for in the past the Maroon lias always come out very successfully against the Purple. In its last game with the Cross, played in 1916. the Varsity swamped the Worcester lads by a 10 to 0 score. I lie 1922-23 football season came to a close on the 25th ol November, the Varsity meeting and playing a 20-20 tie with Muhlenberg at Allentown. Pa. The Maroon, an easy favorite before the game, were fought to a standstill. Muhlenberg displayed surprising strength, and Fordhani was fortunate to fare a it did. I‘ord-hams touchdowns were scored l Fitzgerald. Woerncr and Manning. 180At the end of the season the Varsity insignia were awarded to the following: “Lou” Healey and “Jerry” Fitzgerald, ends; “Kay” Sinead and ‘•Barney” Fallon, tackles; “Bill" Ryan, “Steve” Lesko and Lyman Walbridge, guards; Paul Brennan, center; “Artie” Boutot and “Jim” McGeough, quarterbacks: Captain “Tommy” Meyers, “Bill” Woerner and Paul McDonough, half-backs; “Joe” Manning, full-back, and John Osmond Toerner, manager. “Lou” Healey, who was also a member of the 1920 and 1921 elevens was elected to captain the 192 5 Fordham football team. He succeeds “Tommy” Meyers who, however, will be hack next season to play his fourth and last year with the Maroon. The 1923 season should lie one of the most successful in years. The Varsity loses only two men. Lesko end Boutot, by graduation, and the schedule is one of the best of any college in the countrv, including Rutgers, Lehigh, Georgetown, i . '». I Boston College and Holy Cross. To Captain-elect “Lou” Healey and his future team the class of ‘23 wishes every portion of success and hopes that the Varsity’s 1922 record of three victories, five defeats and two ties will be considerably bettered by their efforts. 181VARSITY I.» fl in rijrlit (hack row): Hoi tot.

Twelve of the Maroon's twenty-four scheduled games have been played, with only one game, between Fordham and the I . S. Marines at Quantico, having been called oil on account ol rain. I lie record, as t now stands, embraces five victories and seven defeats and, though it seems to indicate that the 1923 Fordham baseball season will not be as successful as usual, it is not a bad one. Fordham lias bad many things to contend with this year, which have tended to put its baseball in such a position that tilings must he started Irom the hot-tom. if the Maroon seeks. as we all know it docs, to regain its former diamond prestige. A new coach. ‘Tom” Kcady. is guiding the team, keady. though a mentor of recognized ability, is new to Fordham and to the men who compose ‘he squad. Few veterans—in fact, hut live or six players of any real ability re- 182niained from the 1922 nine. Then, loo. the ill l|K'k n,l 1,1 "I orI iid« s connected with Iasi year's nine seemed I« throw a pall over the hi '4 a situation. The team, right along, has been playing, on the " 1 I« . good base) a 11 md what counts more, spirited baseball. We do not 1 ikc ° ."IVr the impression thit we are striving to create alibis for the Varsity, vet it "4,uld not h . r..:. . ,i.„ team if we were not to mention the fact that the breaks «nn i«, jJc t fair to the .. .. - — . .

Spring practice for the squad was called on the L th of March. Fifty to sixty candidates reported and were put to work in the I’ordhain “gy,,,- |n Vlaine-er “Chris1' Hoe and Captain Harry Schcrmerhorn. both l whom are 1 members of the 1923 class. Indoor practice was held for about lour weeks. th mrn |,rjn«. able to get out-of-doors but a week before the opening game. 'Tom” Kcadv. coach reported on the 1st of March, having been unable to report sooner, because of sickness. By the time the season started. Keadv had cut the squad down to about twenty-four men. The first two games were played at home, with St. John s College of Brooklyn, and Bowdoin. on the 2Bth and 31st of March, respectively. Fordham won both contests, beating St. John’s, 12 to 2. and Bowdoin, 6 to 1. Vandcrbach. W hite and Hayes twirled against St. John’s; O'Donnell. Vanderbaeh and White, against Bowdoin. The two games were played under most adverse weather conditions, the thermometer being below the freezing point, and piercing gales sweeping the diamond. Then came the annual southern trip, which ended rather disastrously for the Maroon. Things started oil well enough, our own ’Tied Waters easily heating Richmond. 10 to 5, in the first game of the week. Somebody, however, then tossed a wrench in the works, for the Maroon did not win one ol its other four games of the week. Virginia started things, sending the Varsity down to a 10 to 2 defeat. Georgetown then came along with an II to 0 conquest over our diamond icprcscntatives; St. John’s College of Annapolis, with a heart-rending .”) to I tii-umph. and the University of Pennsylvania, with a 10 to 0 victory. Things certainly broke badly lor the Maroon on this pilgrimage. I lie pitchers were not pitching; the fielders, fielding, nor the batters, hitting. It was in this week. Thursday, that the scheduled Fordham-l. S. Marines game was called of! on account of rain. The Varsity’s next game was at Fordham Field with Lehigh, whose 1922 nine was coached by “Tom” Ready, present I'ordham baseball coach. 1 he game was a weird one, yet cannot be disregarded on this score, as it wound up in favor of the Maroon, by a score of o to 7. The main factor in the securing of tHe Fordham victory was the Varsity’s half « f the first inning, in which sonic prolific hitting netted seven runs. The Maroon did not again score till the last inning, in which frame the deciding marker was tallied. Following this victory, the Varsity went back to its losing ways and sullered three more defeats. Over at Ohio Field, the New York University nine, our new 183Net old baseball rival, bad a rather easy time of it, handily beating Fordhani, 8 to 2. Then came the annual Fordham-Yale game at New Haven. For the past few veais, Fordhani had always managed to beat the Blue, usually by a one-run margin. This year, however, Yale turned the tables completely, winning by a 2 to 1 score. It was a shame that Joe White, in consideration of the line ball that lie pitched, had to lose, but such are the ways of the baseball gods. Tufts, which has always been a thorn in Fordham’s baseball side, was next in line to take over the Varsity by a score of 8 to .1. The game was the first home defeat of the season for Ready’s men. “It's a long lane that has no turning,” however, as the whole of Fordhani could and did readily testify to. on the evening of the 2 lib ol April. It was only on the afternoon ol that day that Fordhani and Columbia had met on Fordham Field, as a result of which meeting, the Blue and White nine, weary of body and mind, went back to Morningsidc Heights on the very short end of a very long 15 to 4 score. Ihe Maroon's previous defeats of the season were forgiven them, right after that game- and well might they be. The defeat was Columbia's worst of the season; the victory. Fordham's easiest and most sought-for. It was in this Columbia game that “Mike" Hayes, A. B., class of 1923, got off to his real start. For the past two years, with fair success. “Mike” had been used in the outfield and at lirst base. This year, he determined to try his luck on the pitching mound. He had received little attention, however, previous to the Columbia game. In fact, he had pitched a total of but one inning out of all tin- other games. When things were beginning to look a bit dubious, in the fourth inning of this Columbia game, Ready replaced anderbach with Haves. “Mike” came through with colors flying, as In- allowed the Columbia batters but two bits in the five innings that he occupied the mound. Other members of the class of 1923, however, have been doing their bit, too. out there on the diamond lor Fordham. Among these are Captain Harry Schermer-liorn, Manager “Chris” Hoey, “Fred" Waters, “Artie" Boutot and Paul McLaughlin. And. in line with Milton's tamous “They also serve who only stand and wait," we add a few words of praise for those faithful senior rooters who may be found at the ball games held either at Fordham Field or within reasonable distance of Fordham. Harry Schermcrhorn, perhaps better known to all as “Sehemy” has been a mainstay of the Fordham's baseball teams, this year's aggregation ineluded. He has played the past two seasons at either first base or right field, though this year, he has concentrated his playing efforts to guarding the initial sack, which duty he can perform in true major league style. His forte, however, is “socking the old apple." Harry, leading Maroon batter, tins year and the past two seasons, has a mean reputation for his halting ability. Ami lie is more liable, too, to come through with a double or a triple, than he is with a puny, single. “Fred" Waters, leading Fordham pitcher in our Freshman year, is again once more very much in the game, lie docs not pitch as much as of yore for the pitching arm that rendered him useless to the team, the past two seasons, does not m, 'no MAROON seem to have recovered its old-time elasticity—but lie, nevertheless, misses few games. “Tom” Keady, because of “Fred’s” baiting prowess, usually makes room for him in the outfield. In this latter capacity, Waters performs as well, comparatively speaking, as be did on the mound, in 1920. “Artie” Boutot and Paul McLaughlin break into the line-up but now and then. It has once been said that no army is any stronger than its secondary defense; so, too. is no ball team any stronger than its substitutes. And “Boots” and “Varsity Paul, though utility men, are as essential to the team as any of the regulars. lastly, may we not say a few words about “Chris” Hocy, manager though, when you come right down to it. no one should talk for “Chris.” The results of his labors speak for themselves. The 1923 baseball schedule can be said to be about as comprehensive and well-arranged schedule as could be drawn up. It is the ideal schedule. It certainly speaks well for “Chris” and his managerial ability. 185VARSITY I.rfi to right (standing): O'Connell. Leddy, Manager. Kikwin. I. McMahon. McMamee Sitting: I.andky, Caa -wach. Captain E.

Centers—En. McMahon, I.nun. Guards—Manninc, Heai.y, O’Connell, John McMahon THE four vears of post-war basketball opened with a wealth of material that bespoke bright prospects. Three of the 1921-22 season veterans were available, and a host of candidates of ability, many of whom were members of the previous season's Freshman team, reported foi a place in the line-up. Of the three veterans one was our own “Kd” McMahon. Captain of the Five. Aside from the material. “Bud” Culloton, President of the class of 1923 and prominent in college basketball circles was selected as coach by Frank Gargan, Graduate Manager of Athletics, and Father Charles Deane, S. J., Faculty Director. The schedule consisted of eighteen games arranged by our enthusiastic and faithful manager. “Tom” Kerwin, 23. The lirsl and probably most difficult task for “Tom was finding a suitable court for the home games. This obstacle was easily passed over for he soon selected Hunts Point Palace. The schedule which was arranged included games with such teams as Holy Cross. N. V. U., Manhattan, Lehigh, Ml. St. Mary’s, Navy and Rutgers. This was the first schedule in many years which contained these teams. One of the most successful enterprises of Manager Ker-win was the re-establishment of relations with Y. 1 . and Manhattan. With this list of difficult opponents to meet the Varsity commenced its season. The opening game was with one of the strongest fives in the Metropolitan District, Cathedral College. The latter team had already commenced its season but despite the advantage it had of playing, the Varsity emerged from the fray victorious with the score of 37-26. Two days later the Varsity journeyed to Hanford and engaged the Trinity College team, winning 23-17. These two successes within three days heralded a season well begun. Another trip to New England brought the Fordham quintet and Holy Cross to a cage struggle. Unfortunately our team lost after a brilliant display of the best brand of basketball. The next game was played with C. C. N. Y. The team was one of the strongest—if not the best—aggregation in the country. The end of this—one of the Varsity’s most difficult games, found the C. C. N. V. quintet the winner by a 41-29 score. The floor work of McMahon and the shooting of Cava nagh and Landry kept the C. C. N. Y. team at top speed. Unfortunately the Maroon Five fell into a losing streak at this part of the schedule. The players always put up a game fight but somehow could not overcome their opponents. The teams victorious over the Varsity during this period were Manhattan, Cooper Union, St. John’s, Lehigh and Ml. St. Mary’s. The Manhattan game was a lively one, exciting and replete with spectacular plays from 187MAR O 0 N the very outset. It was not until tlie last minute of play that the deciding point of tlio contest was scored and Manhattan withdrew the victor by the close score of 26-25. Cooper Union won with 32 points to the Varsity’s 21. Then followed the defeats at the hands of Lehigh and St. John’s, the former winning M)-21 and the latter 38-27. The Ml. St. Mary's game was very interesting and thrilling to say the least. The seore was tied until tin last two minutes of play when the Southern team caged another field goal and won 32-30. One of the leu games that the Varsity wanted especially to win was the second game with Holy Cross. And it was successful, defeating the Purple 37-26. It was a great game that terminated in a brilliant victory and gave the Fordham team a new impetus, also evening basketball matters between Holy Cross and Fordham for the season. Then the Varsity started on a three-day southern trip, during which the Naval Academy and George Washington Fives were met in contest. The Naval Academy triumphed over our team 33-21. but the George Washington game resulted in another victory for us. This victory made the two southern games terminate in a scoring equilibrium. The N. Y. U. game was the most exciting and fastest game played by the Fordham quintet. At the end of the struggle the score was a tie and an extra live-minute peiiod bad to be played. But when this period was concluded the victory was t i 11 undecided and a second extra period was necessitated. During this time the winning points were made bv N. Y. I .. giving that team the game by a 35 33 score. Cavanagh accounted for six field goals and “Ed ’ McMahon caged three, besides thirteen baskets from the foul line. There were only two substitutions in this game, J. McMahon for Manning and Lcddy for Healey. The interest in this contest manifested by the student supporters of both teams rivaled that displayed at the N. Y. I .-Fordham football game, flic N. V. U. gymnasium was taxed to the doors. Though the game was spirited and lively the enthusiasm of the spectators was more so. The success attending the re-opening of basketball relations with N. N . I . foreshadows many similar and even more successlul and friendly meetings of the two Bronx institutions. Three days later the Varsity visited the Capitol City. Albany, and though it did not storm the Executive Mansion on the hill, it surely played havoc with the Albany Law School quintet and the State Teachers College team. The former game resulted in a 46-31 victory for the Maroon. Captain “Eddie” McMahon had a field-day in the game, scoring nine goals from the floor and four from the foul line. Cavanagh caged five and Landry and Healey each made three. Manning’s playing at guard aided considerably in keeping the opponents’ score so low. J. McMahon, Lcddy. and O'Connell had a hand in this victory and showed lip very well. On the following night the State Teachers College Five fell victims to the Varsity onslaught. The final score of this game was K)-I7 with Fordham the victors. In tin second half the Teachers obtained hut six points while the Varsity was garnering twenty-two. Of the seventeen points made bv the Slate College team eight were foul goals. 188 | MARO O N Cavanagh played exceptionally well in this game, accounting for six field goals. 'Fd" McMahon was also a high scorer, making two field goals and goals from foul. Healey, who played a very good defensive game, added six points to the score and hi team-mate Manning was responsible for two field goals. After these two victories on its northern trip the Varsity engaged the Rutgers l ive at New Brunswick and met defeat 30 to 23. At the end of the first half each team had accumulated fifteen points hut in the last few minutes of the second half Rutgers forged ahead. The final game of the season was played with the nationally prominent Crescent A. C. Five. This team had scarcely known defeat for three years, hut the Maroon quintet. displaying the traditional Fordham spirit, in a hurst of glory, humbled them 33 to 32. McMahon obtained six field goals, besides seven from the foul line, Cavanagh accounted for five and Landry two. In the last ten minutes the Varsity gained eleven points while the Crescents failed to add a single tally. It was a good season and showed advancement over the previous years' playing. In the midst of the season “Ed” Kellehei of Niagara joined “Bud" Culloton as roach and will succeed the 1923 Class President as Varsity Coach for the 1923-24 season. The men who received the Varsity “F" for basketball are: Captain 'Ed’ McMahon, ’23, Vincent Cavanagh. ’24, Louis Healey, Law '25. and our very efficient and truly loyal manager “Tom" Kerwin, "23. 189M AROON VARSITY Left to right «lop row): Baii.istkr.

Mi Ni i ty Track THE 1922-23 track season at Fordham will live long in the annals of the Maroon's athletic history, not so much for the accomplishments of the Varsity track team or any of its individual members, but for all that it has done towards the regaining of Kordham’s former high track prestige and the replacing of track affairs at Eoidham on a solid basis. The past season has been but a beginning which, however, if used as a model by the track management the next few years, will accomplish foi track activities all that was so earnest I started this year. Working hand in hand, right along since classes were resumed last September have been “Jake” Weber, coach and trainer of the track squad, and “Bill” Dean, 23. student-manager. These two men are largeK responsible for all that was stated in the above paragraph. “Jake.” the inimitable, who, for the best part of the last fifteen years has been connected with the athletic office, conditioned and trained the men 190alone; “Bill ' Dean, in true executive fashion, took complete charge of the arrangement of the thousand and one tasks incumbent upon his oflice. 1 he greatest accomplishment of the season was, of course, the holding of the "Fordham Meet." at the local 22nd Regiment Armory, on the night of Saturday, the 20th of January. Considered from all angles, this affair, a revival of the ford-ham Meet of the pre-war era. was a tremendous success. It saw the breaking ol one record and the lying of another. “Willie” Ritola, with the time ol 19 minutes, 27 4 5 seconds for the four-mile run. bettered bv twelve seconds the maik established by George Bonhag in 1910. '‘Bob ' McAllister, in the 100-vard dash ol his series of special sprints with “Eddie" Farrell, Fordham's track star, equalled the indoor record of ten seconds, flat. The track season was formally opened at Fordham Field on tin 21th of October with another inter-class meet such as was first staged last Spring. This aftair the Juniors literally ran oil with, their total point score being 57 tallies, or ol% points higher than the Sophomores, who finished second with 22' points. I bird place went to the Freshmen, with 20 • points; fourth, to the Seniors, with 12 points, and last place, to the Freshmen Pre-Mods, with 2 points. I he afternoon’s individual honors went to ' innic Cavanagh, who. alone, scored a total of fourteen points. Frank Dillon. Senior, was tied with “Red" Hammer, of Freshman, lor fourth place, with an individual point score ol 8 points. In the Fall, tin- cross-country team, composed of George Nolan, track. "Eddie” Haupt, "Joe” Noble, "Dan" Barrett. "Bill" McNulty. "Ed” Swan-strom, Charles Reilly and “Jack" McDcvitl, ran in two important local meets, over the Van Corllandt Park course. In a triangular meet with Rutgers and V V. U., Fordham came in last. In the other, in which all the local colleges entered teams, Fordham came in fourth, behind Columbia, Rutgers and N. 'i. I .. hut ahead of Brooklyn Poly. The Winter season was a busy one. indeed, for Fordham's track squad, the Maroon being represented by either its relay team or individual entries in all but a few of the big meets that were held during the indoor season. As said before, the athletic world was far from startled at the Maroon’s achievements, yet, because of its hard and conscientious work the track squad fully satisfied and came up to the hopes of its supporters. Special commendation is due Captain “Eddie” Farrell, George Nolan, George Hammer, George Ballister and “Joe” Noble, who did most of the running on the relay quartet and who managed to place in all but two or three of the liltccn meets entered. The first four won a handsome trophy by taking first place in the Bailey 191Memorial Kelav Mace at the St. Anselm's games. Individual entrants whose efforts are also worth) of praise are “Jim" MrGeough, George Hammer, “Eddie" Darrell, “Bill" Jones, “Joe" Noble, George Nolan and “Dan" Barrett. A Tjik Maroon goes to press, all efforts of the track management are being centered on the monster outdoor college and club meet that is scheduled to take place at the new Yankee Stadium on the 30th of May. The affair, the first of its kind that I-ordham has ever attempted, will be made a permanent one il it turns out as successful I as it now gives indication of. Entries from the elite of the track world have been already received from all sections of the East. 192VARSITY Left to right (standing': Room: ,, Dillon, Capt. Kekisky. Ckomn Lclt to right (seated : Walsh. McMahon Tennis A | A ENNIS at Fordham is a sport which may be chronicled with the oldest of activities. For many years, this sport, which becomes more popular every •' year, was rather neglected, owing to the poor facilities which were afforded its followers. But for the past few years it ha been a different story, because Fordham today boasts of lemii- courts unexcelled by any in tin- city. Consequently. in like manner, its teams have progressed by leaps and bounds until now the Maroon tennis teams rank with any in the Fast. And, as we go to press, we feel sure that the season of 1923 is to be no exception to the rule. This year should bring to Fordham one of the strongest combinations she has yet sent forth in quest of racquet honors. And this is in no way an idle boast, for wc find that among those aspiring to team honors, there are many who have already participated in intercollegiate competition. This year's aggregation is captained by “Tom” Keresey, ’23 who is out to play his fourth year of intercollegiate tennis. Among the. other candidates are Frank Walsh. 25 who played for Fordham last year without losing a single match. Frank Dillon. 23 who was seen on the team 193lH» M A R_G O N p iii 1921 and "I'd'' McMahon, '23. this year's Captain of Basketball, whose play on the courts has always been of scintillating calibre, and Jack Cronin, 24 who bids to be a bright light in Fordham's hall of tennis fame. Owing to an accident received while playing last summer. George Sauer ’23, a member of last year's team, will be unable to enter competition this season. The other members who have been seen on the courts in former years and who arc candidates for this year’s squad are Frank Leslie 23, Walter Grote ’23 and “Dick" Kinn 23. Then, too. many new fares appear as aspirants to the team and among them we find "Dick" Conley ’24, “Sid" Cunningham '2-1. “Pat'' Rooney ’24. Harry Hush ’25, Howard Driscoll 26 and Ed. Lyman '25. With such an array of talent as this, surely the Maroon will be well represented on the courts this season. The arsity tennis schedule, arranged by Manager John Mulvev. comprises about eight matches with teams in and around New York. Home and home engagements have been arranged with C. C. Y. Y. and X. Y. U. Stevens will be met on their courts in Hoboken, while Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute will be entertained on the home grounds. On Decoration Day, the Maroon travels to New Haven to meet ale and endeavor to add another victory to the list which Fordham already holds over the famous Blue teams. As all the teams on the schedule are bright luminaries in the intercollegiate world, the matches promise to be hard-fought and interesting. While many of the present squad are to be graduated this year, still the luture of tennis at Fordham appears to be in sale hands, for we find tennis becoming more and more popular here as each year rolls around and with such enthusiasm present as has been vouchsafed this season, success is bound to follow. Besides, with two such outstanding performers as Jack Cronin and Frank Walsh, the ('lass of 1923 feels that its record in tennis circles will be well cared for. 194Class Athletics THE class of 1923, in addition to its remarkable record of supplying varsity athletic teams with a good part of their material, has, in the past four years, established an enviable reputation for itself through the efforts of its class teams. Beginning in our freshman year and continuing right up to the present time, the '23 athletes have always more than held their own in competition, either with outside or with other class teams. In our freshman year, the first organized team to take the field was the class basketball five, which was captained by “Charley" kenna and managed by Quentin O’Connell. The team had a remarkable season, winning all its fourteen games, including two contests with the C. C. . V. freshmen and one game with the Y . I . yearlings. Flaying on this quintet were “Charlie" kenna. Walter Grote, Frank Sullivan, “Bill” Finnegan. “Joe" O'Brien. John Nolan. “Sal" Freda and “Bob" Carney. O'Brien was the team's leading scorer. Our “frosli" baseball nine also enjo ed a most successful season. The team won an even dozen of the fifteen games that had been scheduled by “Jack Griffin, manager. The roster of the team included the names of the following men: Captain “Jack" McSherrv, “Tony" Mauro. “Joe" Butler. “Frank" Kingsley. "Mike" Hayes, Quentin O'Connel. “Frank" Williams, "Jack" Nolan, “Artie" Boutot. “Charley” Kenna, “Bill" Finnegan and Paul McLaughlin. Our Freshman tennis team, too, was as successful as the basketball five and baseball nine. The teams of six different prep and high schooU were, played, which meetings resulted in four victories, one tie and hut one defeat for our representatives. “Tom" Kerwin, manager of this highly successful team, had the following men on the squad: Captain “Frank" l eslic, “Dick" Finn. “Frank" Dillon, “Ed" McMahon and “Joe" Weed. A class football eleven was put on the gridiron by the class of 1923 in both our Sophomore and Junior years. Our Sophomore team lo t it two games, both to the Freshman eleven. The scores, 7 to 0 and 7 to f , indicate that both games were rather closely contested. The team that, as juniors, represented 1923. met with more success than had our eleven of the previous year. In our two games, we tied the "frosli," 7 to 7, and triumphed over the Seniors, 13 to 6. The line-up of the team was about the same for both seasons. It read as follows: Captain Walter Grote and “Frank” Dillon, ends; "Tom” Brennan and “Frank” Leslie, tackles; John McLaughlin and John Mulvev, guards; “Dinnv" Harrington. center; “Charlie" Kenna and “Joe" Butler, quarterbacks; “Joe" Weed, “Ed” McMahon and “Jack" Nolan, halfbacks; John Kclls-Murphy. "Bob” Mahoney. “Bill" McNulty and “Joe" McCluskey. substitutes; and “Syl" Kiddy, manager. As The Maroon goes to press, the Senior class baseball nine is out there on the diamond every once or twice a week, winning games and new laurels for ’23. In fact, our representatives arc now in first place in the inter-class league and bid fair to thus end the season. 195— MAROON Fordham University Varsity Club IT had long been u desire of the athletic authorities at Fordham to organize those members of the college and alumni who had won their varsity “F" as members of Kordham’s athletic teams. The advantage of forming such an organization of alumni and students whose interest in athletics was founded on years of actual service as athletes under the banner of the Mmjoon had always appealed to those in charge as being in line with Fordham's efforts for sound, clean athletics. This cherished project was finally brought to a consummation by the formation of the Fordham University Varsity Club. 1 he first meeting took place on the evening of May fifth. 1923. in Alumni Hall, at which were present many ursity letter men of both past and present athletic fame. Mr. John J. Sullivan, IF former Maroon track captain and relay star was chosen President, and Mr. Ha mond hearty. ‘22, also a Maroon track leader, was named as Secretary. The purpose of the arsity Club, as announced by its founders, is to form a bond of fraternity between all varsity letter men and thereby work as an important factor for the advancement and betterment of athletics at Fordham. Likewise to tin possessors of a varsity letter will come an added appreciation of the honor they have won in defending and adding new laurels to Fordham on the gridiron, diamond, cinderpnlh and basketball and hockey courts. Under the guidance of a committee composed of “Lou" Healey, 22. “Ray’ O'Connell. 14. and “Bud" Culloton. ’23, a constitution was drawn up defining the aims of the club and the rules which they were to observe. Th« class of '23 points with pride to the large number of men that it has represented on the arsity Club. As members of tin football team, there are “Steve" Lesko, “Artie Boutol. and “Osie" Teenier: on the baseball team. “Bud Culloton, “Freddy Waters, I lari Scherinerhorn. and “Chris' Hoey; in basketball. “Ed” McMahon and “Tom" Kerwin; for track, “Bilk" Dean; for hockey, “Tom Kcrcscy: and finally, as president of the athletic association for 1922-23, “Bill" McNulty, the prime mover in the formation of the club. The Varsity Club is the newest of all Fordham's organizations; but. certainly, it is evident that it will go far toward carrying out the sound athletic policy as inaugurated by Frank Cargan. May it have every success. 1%Football Boitot Lesko Hendrick Shankey Toekner, Mgr. Baseball SCHEIi.M ERHOR N, Capt.
