It is the one link in the chain of golden memory that hinds one in the after years to the glorious days of College life. It is, as it were, a stereopticon that casts old, familiar scenes and dim. forgotten faces upon the screen of memory. This is the purpose of the Nineteen Twenty-four Maroon, and if it succeeds in rekindling the spark that makes it possible for us to relive those fleeting, joyous days, we will feel that its mission has been accomplished. The task of compiling a volume of this kind is an arduous one, fraught with irksome labor and much burning of the midnight oil. I lowever. we will feel that our efforts have been rewarded if, in the years to come, this Annual helps to bring back the sweet recollections of friendships made, knowledge gained, and happy, care-free days, and thus draws us closer to Rose Hill and Alma Mater THE EDITORS192,4 Dedication To the Reverend Joseph A.

Xavier Mr George tJordon Battle Dedication O Thou, whose name is power From heaven unto the pit. Lean down a little hour Where Thy lamps are low-lit; Guide us who fare on this, Thy quest, Give us good joy of it. And grey-eyed Fate is weaving. Before her shuttle bowed, A fabric past believing, With various guise endowed For some, a wonder-web of fame. For some, a nameless shroud. Yet—though where lies our going Are weary ways and steep. And at the end are glowing The poppied hills of sleep; Though hope still sous a thousand fields Where time can never reap—- T is best to part with laughter In friendship's sacred name. The years that follow after. Fall they to good or grame. Can never dim these shining days Or shadow their faint flame. Patrick Grady The minstrel wind is sighing In campus elm trees For days now come to dying: Undying memories; For young knights armed and unafraid. Yet wistful, ill at case.

"Dutch" All I la I lows "Rani Staff (2, 3); Stage Crew ( , 2. 3. 4); Class Baseball ( , 2. 3. 4); Class Football ( , 2, 3, 4); Harvester Club ( , 2, 3). HERE is a man! We first made his acquaintance when, in Freshman, we were permitted to glance behind the scenes of "Hawthorne of the U. S. A.," there to behold an energetic, perspiring youth carrying castle walls and mighty oaks hither and yon Some slight idea of "Eddie's" versatility may be gained when we state that he did not confine himself to carrying scenery, but clad in the gorgeous uniform of an hussar, he carried the fainting heroine in his brawny arms. Ever since that momentous occasion, "Eddie has been found a regular fixture on the stage crew. That he has eschewed the acting end of the business wc believe is due to the fact that we have had no more heroines except the synthetic kind, and where is the thrill in that? However, we have no fears of our "Ed" drifting through life a lonely bachelor; not with that handsome face and figure. But enough of this idle chatter. As we said at the beginning of this little biography, "Ed" is a man. By that we mean that he has the steadfastness of character that marks the gentleman; the devotion and loyalty that marks a son of Fordham, and the companionable good nature that marks the true friend He has always been a good student, but the trend of his thoughts has run toward science as his perfect mark in physics will testify We cannot say just what career he has chosen for himself, but if intelligence, honesty and energy are essential requisites, there can lx- no doubt of his success. The top o' the mornin to "Eddie," and the best of good luck! Twenty-eightJOHN E. BACKUS, A.B. "Jack," "Bacche" Brooklyn Prep Council of Debate (3, 4); Track (3); Sodality (3); Senior Banquet Committee (4). SL1G11TLY rotund, of somewhat portly figure, jovial, good natured to a fault, ever smiling, there you have him. John is one whose charm of good nature is unique. He is ever ready to absorb a pointed joke or to match it with a like one; and for that shall he ever be remembered by his classmates when college is but a fond memory. On his arrival from Brooklyn College, John at once made himself known and liked by all. As beadle of Junior B, he will never be forgotten. Often in that capacity did he set the class into conv ulsions of laughter when, at a knock on the door, he would make a sudden exit and only reappear again, after a somew'hat lengthy interval, and exchange glances with the professor. John certainly knows how to shake the festive foot with agility and grace; he has indeed the "savoir faire," and employs it most skillfully at all affairs of note. His activities at Fordham have been many. Not content with studies alone he joined the Council of Debate, w herein he often w'axed eloquent. Track, too, claimed him for a time. And. in his last year he surprised all by belonging to nearly every class listed in the catalogue and keeping up in each to the end. For John is a glutton for punishment. 1 Ie seems to thrive on hard work, and the perpetual smile he wears is never dimmed even when confronted by the greatest difficulties. Twenty-nineWILLIAM F. BA ILLY, A.B. "Bill Dickinson High Class Track (2, j, 4); Debating ( , 2). TN I HL person of "Bill" Bailey, Fordham possesses a worthy son. one ready at all times to toil for her interests and to offer his best for her activities. He has manifested to us not only his ability in the field of learning but in his track exhibitions as well Like some of the other members in our class, "Bill" came into prominence, as all quiet ones do sooner or later, through the Interclass games being held in our Sophomore year. He entered a number of track events, ran. and became famous overnight. And so. as long as the corraling by 24 of most of the medals that year shall be remembered, so. too. shall "Bill." Nothing seems to worry him. Professors, hooks, classes and final exams—all look alike to "Bill." How he does it is a secret; but we never hear any complaints from him. The results are what we see. Always the same smiling chum, he is a g xxl fr iend, one whom we would not like to lose. A quiet, serious, successful student; a steady, loyal, honest character of high and noble ideals; may he take out into the world beyond the college gates those traits that have made him a classmate admired and respected by all. May the realization of his hopes and the attainment of his ideals come in a happy future. ThirtyVINCENT J. BRADY, A B. "Quiz-Bean" Regis High School Debating Society: Sodality (j, 4), Glee Club (4). Ar TIMES we cull Vincent Quiz-bean.' earned in |his Sophomore year on account of his thirst for knowledge. This name, bestowed affectionately by his classmates, indicates his friendly nature, for a nickname is a true criterion of popularity. Some wit has said: " Falk to him of Jacob s Ladder, and he would ask the number of steps. But this ambitious trail is a real asset in a man's character. He has a pleasant, soft voice that makes for engaging conversation, and can capably present his arguments in debate. A sunny disposition at all times (such as is his), together with the ability to give and assimilate friendly witticisms with grace, is unequaled for smoothing the path of life. In the classroom, Quiz" is known to be a conscientious student. Without a doubt, Vincent is fully equipped to make progress in life, for he has the ambition that gives man energy to meet and solve the problems of life, and courage that sends him smiling against adversity, and these make a sure combination for success. Keep it up, "Vince"—too many of us laugh at difficulties in retrospect only, and worry at the present, but it is far easier, if we only knew it, to say as sonic true philosopher of the past has said "What do we live for if not to make life less difficult?" Thirtv-oneJAMES D. BRESLIN. B.S. “Red,.....Torch y" East Mauch Chunk High School, Mauch Chunk, Pennsylvania Mimes and Mummers (i, 2. 4, 4): Parthenian Sodality ( , , ?, 4). ABOUT four years ago a sorrel-topped young man. fresh from the coal mines Ti of Pennsylvania, entered Fordham determined to reap the full benefit of a College education. We would not say that Red' Breslinwas any too impressive looking, besmeared as he was with an overabundance of coal dust. Such a picture did the Mauch Chunkian make upon his entrance to the "Big U.“. However, it is marvelous to note just how an outfit of collegiate clothes and the development of a “line" should so completely change this picture. For “Torchy" has stepped out into the class of the elite in the collegiate world. I le dances and "teas" and spends a good deal of his time between Fordham and New Rochelle. From most reliable reports he is considered quite a man around this town of New Rochelle. Moreover, let us consider him in that select circle of intellectual aristocrats. “Jim" always got by and then some. Of course, we arc purposely forgetting the first few semesters, which, however, “Red" also disregards. To his roommates must go a great deal of the credit in the accomplishment of this unusual transformation From coal miner to student and leader in things collegiate is considered quite a step in the evolution of man—yet all these things have come about. Altogether. “Red" is quite the ideal collegian in appearance and in personality I lis good nature and cordial spirit have not only brought the admiration of his friends but will also bring him unlimited success in any of his future legal undertakings 7 hinx-iwo GEORGE A. BROOKS, A.B. "George." “Joe Brooks Regis High Scliool Editor-in-Chief The Ram '; Associate Editor Maroon; Class Treasurer (j. 4); Managing Editor Ram {)), Associate Editor (2), President Harvester Club {4), ■Secretary Athletic Association; Chairman Senior Class Banquet; Commencement Week Committee; Vice-President Harvester Club (j). Secretary-Treasurer (2). A TOUSLED mass of golden locks and an air of grim determination have been 1 much in evidence on the campus during the past four years. Their possessor has been prominently identified with practically every branch of student activity— in curriculum and extra-curriculum. As Editor-in-Chief of The Ram his pen has ever been wielded in the cause of justice and loyalty to Fordham. With a real gift for journalism, his editorials have been timely, erudite and interesting, and this we understand is the journalist's goal, always sought and seldom attained. As custodian of the class funds for the past two years, he has held a tight and judicious grasp upon the purse-strings, being, like every ideal treasurer, eager to receive and loath to bequeath. “George has also labored earnestly in the interests of the Athletic Association, and when not to be found in the Ram office, it would be a safe guess that he was drumming away at a typewriter in the A A. office. In spite of the burden of finance and the grueling labor of the editorial desk. “George" has consistently maintained the standing of an honor man in his class, and beneath the cloak of learning and the mind of a philosopher there heats the heart of a prince of good fellows. "George,' we understand, has a penchant for law and it is our opinion that he will go far in his chosen profession il prodigious energy and ability make for success. Thirty-three ALFRED T BULL, A B -AC Brooklyn Prep. LIFE, to "Al." calls for no sustained and vociferous ballyhoo Fie is reticent: unassuming With him, as with the charming youngster in the Fisk ad. it is always time to retire. Yet, for all that his light is established under a deprecatory bushel, sufficient illumination escapes through unsuspected chinks to cast a revelatory glow over the outline of a character entirely likable and unstereotyped He will never have a brass band at the station to meet him. but ten to one he w ill be able to give orders to the fellow who has. for he possesses a priceless faculty of consistent effort w hich cannot fail to carry him far. During four years he has not missed a class period or a Broadway 'hit.'’ His hobbies arc tennis, bowling, and the saxophone He is partial to all sports, and can hold up his end at anything from Mah Jongg to football In line with his hobbies arc his aversions, homely girls and wisc-crackers—this latter, notwithstanding his own genial, sometimes cynical, comments on the passing show. Seldom is "Al" argumentative; vet, when he raises his voice in philosophic wrath, the signal goes forth for his opponent to take to the intellectual tall timbers A gentleman, a scholar, a judge of good music—altogether one of the most likable chaps who ever went forrh from Fordham 7 hirty-fourJAMES J. CARROLL, A B. "Jim," "Desolation St. Peter’s Prep. Associate Editor Maroon; President Mimes and Mummers (4); Varsity Play ( . 2, j. 4); Class Football ( . 2, 3. 4); Harvester Club (2, }, 4); Commencement Committee; Glee Club (4) THE Class of '24 is rich in wearers of the buskin and followers in the footsteps of Thespis. It has contributed in no small degree to Fordham's dramatic progress in the last few years. But one of the pioneers in this triumphant march— and now, indeed, one of the veterans is—"Jim Carroll. I Ie was first seen behind the footlights in Rostand's "L’Aiglon," and he played a minor role exceedingly well. The next year he was awarded one of the leading parts in the Varsity production of Goldsmith s "Mistakes of a Night, and his impersonation of Squire Hard-castle was one of the highlights of this revival. His vivid portrayal of "Allison’s Lad" in Junior added greatly to "Jim s' histrionic fame. But the crowning achievement of all w as his superlative impersonation of Sir Anthony Absolute in this year's production of "The Rivals." In recognition of his ability and faithful service in dramatics, he was elected President of the Mimes and Mummers, and has successfully guided the destiny of that organization during the past year. Aside from the footlights. Jim" has found time to engage in athletics; he has been in the midst of every class contest and has always emerged dust-covered but victorious. From time to time, Jim" has unfolded numerous bloodcurdling plots for plays which, once produced, we feel confident would "outbat" " The Bat, and silence forever “The Cat and the Canary," but thus far he has not even put them into written form; much less, produced them. But who know-s, perhaps some day he will whip those ideas into shape and write a play1 We should like to hear from him. “Will yer, Jim ?" Thirty-fiveVINCENT T. CAVANACH. A B. 'Vince ' "Vinnie," "Cavvy" Xavier High Varsity Basketball (2. 3, 4); Varsity Baseball ( . 2. j. 4); Varsity Track; Class Vice-President (?, 4); Mimes and Mummers (4). rT"'HINK of basketball and you’ll think of "Caw ” No one man has had more 1- to do with the morale and spirit of the team than the captain of this year’s five. To his cool-headed leadership can be credited the many victories of that team and the close, hard-fought games which gave it a name for its pluck. As to his own playing, there is no doubt. He has an uncanny ability to "cage" the ball from the most difficult positions, together with plenty of speed, so that a teammate once said of him. If our opponents had the ball, and we needed to recover quickly, we could always depend on Cavvy’ to get it. ” It is hard to imagine a city high school capable of producing such an athlete, yet it was in Xavier that he was developed But his ability is not limited to this one sport. Baseball has found him a most dependable infielder as w ell as a consistent "safe" hitter. Likew ise he stands out prominently in the various track meets which have taken place at Fordham. His class always counted on him for the sprints, and it was a surprise if he failed to capture the discus and javelin throw. The respect and esteem in which he is held by his classmates is shown by the fact that he was made vice-president in his Senior and Junior years. A clean-cut. well-built fellow, pleasing in disposition, his calm manner would seem to mark him as one who would succeed in whatever he attempted Truly, he might be called the "ideal" man. Thirty-six JOHN W COLEMAN, A B “Johnnie" Sr. Peter's Prep Class Baseball ( . 2. ? 4); Class Football (j. 4); Council of Debate (;, 2). Day Students Sodality. A FEW years from now the residents of the Bergen section of Jersey City will in all probability know a very industrious person titled John Coleman. D.D.S., for this enterprising individual has decided to be a dentist of no mean ability. Georgetown, next year is the lucky school that he has chosen to round out his profession However, at present he is to us only "Johnnie and as such has been guilty of making innumerable friends at Pordham. It was a somewhat bashful person that answered to his name when spoken to in Freshman. But as time toiled along, "Johnnie became less shy and certainly popular, especially since he showed his class the athletic genius hidden under the veil of a milder character. At baseball and football it was in a great measure due to his efforts that our class maintained its exalted position in the Intcrclass games. So. "Johnnie." take that resolute and determined character to Georgetown with you. but leave your smile at Pordham. lor Pordham has come to know and love it. and if you succeed in extracting teeth as deftly as you have extracted the regard of your classmates, well----you'll be a corking good dentist. Thirty-sevenRICHARD R. CONLEY, A.B. “Dick" I -oyola School Council of Debate (2. 4); Chairman Junior Prom (3); Sodality ( , 3. 4). AFTER being graduated from Loyola, that rendezvous of exclusiveness hack in . 1920, "Dick' was sent to Fordham for the greater glory of both During his (irst two years he stuck to his books and kept aloof from class "politics, and it was not until his Junior year that he emerged to become Chairman of the Prom Committee Then what with letters, telegrams, and telephone messages, he arrived, in theatrical parlance, in the spotlight. The duties of his position did not irk him nor did his responsibilites daunt him, and again Fordham put over one of her famous Proms under “Dick’s" able direction. To what purpose he will put his college training when entering what we vaguely term, the world, it is difficult to guess and it would be impertinent to advise. Suffice it to say that those qualities of loyalty and disinterestedness which made him stand behind every Fordham activity, whether literary, athletic or social, will not fail him after the diploma has been awarded A good friend and an able student, nothing can keep him from a deserved success. 7 hirty-eighlALBERT R. CONNOLLY, B S. "Al" DcWitt Clinton Council of Debate, Class Baseball ( ). OUR class, unfortunately, has had very few B.S. men in it. but those few arc examples of real scientists. Among this elite gathering is "Al," who came to Fordham after being graduated from Clinton—the largest High School in New York. 1 le has made himself the object of praise and admiration from the Faculty and student body, and the well wishes of both will follow him in his career. An energetic youth with the facility of casting joy at random among his classmates, ever ready to take a joke and receive one. His aptitude for grasping profound philosophical propositions is history and the class looks upon him as an authority on the question of substance. Although a resident of Brooklyn, "Al" is a very nice young man. This, we understand, is attested to by his coterie of fair friends. When amongst them we can well imagine his cherubic face aglow, his voice silver, his words—ah. divine! It will be Albert Connolly. M.D., one of these days and it needs no prophet to say he will be a mighty good physician. 7 hirtv-nineRAYMOND D. CONRON. A.B. "Ray," "Butch I .oyola School Junior Prom Committee (7). Council of Debate (4), Sodality (3, 4). RAY" came to Fordham with a purpose—to graduate! And neither Catholic Encyclopedias nor Clark's Logic have swerved him from his course. In the interim he might find time to help with a Prom or cheer at a game, but industry, the qualil which brings the most lasting success, has always been his strongest point. Real college spirit is shown more often outside the classroom than in. It is genuine interest which brings a man to a football game, the plays and the Intercollegiate debates And this. "Ray" has always evinced. It is a good beginning and augurs well for the future. After college. "Ray" talks of taking a trip, not a "join-the-navy-and-see-the-world kind, but one which will give the final gloss to an A.B. degree. And our only hope is that in the problematical future he will preserve and increase the same habits which brought him safely and successfully through his four years at Ford-ham; and if so. the recording angel should be able to write "Success" after his name in bold letters in the great Book of Life. Forty ANGLLO CORGILLO. A.B “Tom Mix," "Barber" Fordham Prep Sodality (.}, 4): Council of Debate ( . 2); Boy Scout Committee (. ). FORDHAM Prep has always contributed a large number of its graduates to the college, and among them there have been students of fame and renown Angelo had the good fortune to be numbered among its graduates in 1920, but the good fortune passed over to the college the following year, for this unassuming individual has proved himself a friend to all in his class A friend that will be missed sadly when June rolls around. I lis happy disposition and that perpetual smile of his will linger in our mind s eye for a long time to come. It is his greatest desire to some day be admitted to the New York Bar Association. In preparation for this, next year w ill find him at Fordham Law School. We venture to predict a successful career for "Angie" as a barrister if he takes with him the disposition and charm he brought to his Alma Mater He has been very fortunate, inasmuch as he has an exceptional amount of brains and common sense that should stand him in good stead in the legal world and bring distinction to Fordham and credit to himself. Fort -oneJAMES D. C.ORRIDON, A.B "Don.' “Ringer" Norwalk High Schol Hotkey ( . 2); Class Football (2, 3); Debating Society (3, 4); Glee Club (4). WHEN the New England liver coining from East Norwalk finally reached New York and a rather impressive-looking young man stepped from the platform, you immediately knew it was "Don." The "Ringer once confessed to being an immale of St. John's Hall, but claimed his good sense got the better of him and so he took to commuting. Glance above and note that, in his first two years at Fordham, "Don played on the Maroon hockey team and then look over the athletic files and observe that in 1920. Fordham possessed the Intercollegiate hockey title and you will have an idea as to his accomplishments on the ice. Whatever "Don has taken up. whether it be in the field of athletics or in the classroom, he has always succeeded in doing well. However, he does not devote himself to these alone, for Don" is a good "mixer" and is most popular with the fellows. It might be unfair to "Don" to say that there was a certain one in Norwalk— well, what's the use1 He seems to go big anywhere from New York to his home town. When fellows get together and a sudden "go bag" comes forth, look out for "Don," for you are in for a "ride." But Donald can take a ride even better than he can give one; all of which gives some slight indication of his most sunny disposition. So when we happen to pass through Norwalk and observe the M.D. on his "shingle." we would prefer to just remember him as the same old "Don " Forty-twoJOSEPH B. COTTER. A.B. “Joe” Fordham Prep Y 7HEN you meet a group of people you always find that a certain few are first ' to attract your attention. For various reasons they create interest above the others. And thus it was when our class was first gathered together "Joseph B.,“ without saying a word, became the focus of our attention. He had somew hat the appearance of a dapper gentleman, that "savoir-faire which seems to speak of long membership in the business and social world. We thought, then, that this might have been due to the fact that he had already spent seme years at Fordham, since he was a graduate of the Prep. But we find that this is not altogether true, at least it is not the complete cause. W e know now that he is probably the best dancer of the class, and there are a score of his young lady friends who will testify to that fact. Unless this were so. he certainly would not be receiving the myriad of invitations which come to him, nor would affairs be considered unsuccessful when they lacked his presence We must not slight his ability as a student, for he is one of those w ho never seem to worry about any subject, and it seems his nature to glide through each of them as easily as he does the newest dance step. No doubt, as the years go on. we will find him stepping forth in business with an ease and grace equal to that which he manifests today. h'orty-ihree WILLIAM P COTTLR. A.B. “Bill'' Regis High School Council of Debate ( ); Mimes and Mummers (4); Class Football. BILL'S" classmates know him lo be a hard worker in his studies and a grxxJ athlete on the class team. His specialty is argumentation and he delights in crossing mental swords with any who are skilled enough to withstand his rapierlike thrusts. "He could on cither side dispute, Confute, change hands, and still confute would be applicable to "Bill if it were not for the lact that he debates too earnestly to belie his convictions. “Bill" is a devotee of baseball and handball; and never content to calmly view the college games, he is a most rabid rooter for the team. Likewise he showed his football ability in the line of our unbeaten class team And whenever the team was suffering a temporary setback, "Bill" was in there 'fighting mad to hold that, line In the social line. "Bill" proves himself a capable conversationalist and reveals a creditable acquaintance with good literature.

DID YOU ever picture some of your friends as living actors, filling roles which today seem to correspond to characters of other days? Recall, then, your impressions of a kingly knight whose rule extended over a vast territory, yet whose lands were governed with remarkable care, where all seemed to be prosperity and contentment, and there were no poor or oppressed. Pledged to his defense are many score of other knights who stand ready to defend or aid at the first opportunity. But there is no strained autocracy. I he king and his knights are companions. They follow him because of his courage and generosity. He never commands. His wish, when known, is readily fulfilled. He is not a giant encompassing all by strcn$h or by sternness of mien. Yet, of noble stature and of broad, clear visage, he governs by his very nature. Behold, then, if you have made this picture, our own Tom Coyle. Though quiet and reserved, he is a true friend of all and ready always to help his fellows in every possible manner. Certainly. St Peter's Prep from which fie was graduated can be most proud of him. even though he may frequently arrive at our portals somewhat tardily. He is never questioned, however, for we can only assume with such a man that he has good reason Whether living in Jersey is responsible for it. we cannot tell, lor though we have tried three types of judges—those who live there, those living out of Jersey and who have never been there, and those living somewhere else and who happen to be acquainted with someone living therein, we have found all equally biased.

Many gaily-colored Prom posters and bewitchingly illustrated notebooks attest to "Jack's” power with pencil and pen. By all this we do not mean to imply that "Jack's” gifts are of the frivolous order; to watch him handle a vernier caliper or to see him at radio is a sufficient refutation. What "Jack” will do with all these accomplishments after June is still a veiled mystery both to us and to himself. But he need have no fears.

"Sid Loyola School Maroon Stall; Varsity Tennis (4). Debate Council (4); Sodality ( . 2. 4) THE adage has it. that still waters run deep, and the man who first framed that pithy remark must have been thinking of Sterns Cunningham, for he combines with seriousness of thought a dogmatic tenacity to reasoned conclusions. These aggressive qualities, seemingly paradoxical in a nature happier in giving than in receiving, arc paralleled by a quiet humor and engaging conversation that have made Sterns one of the best liked of 1924's host of good fellows, for there is none so self-effacing yet none so well esteemed as he. Sterns tour deforce is advanced thought, particularly as represented in modern literature, yet he has not neglected the classic authors as his various papers in the Fordham Monthly indicate. As Associate Editor of the Maroon he has directed the delicate facility of his pen to the enhancement of that climax of our college years, while his history of our class as Juniors had made of Herodotus an ardent Protectionist But erudition is not the only quality that Sterns possesses in such goodly measure His humor and swift repartee are at their best over the bridge table and his skill at the latter is equaled only by his brilliancy at the former. We have heard it said that Sterns knows a thing or two about a game of hearts not found in Hoyle. The curtain is already dropping on the play of 1924 even now the actors prepare to play over routes that will not soon converge. With them goes Sterns, one who embodies the culture of scholarship and the camaraderie of good fellowship For him in later years we ask nothing more than that the world shall hold him in that esteem which was his with the Class of 1924 Forty-eightWALTER A.

Walter was never picked for an All-American team, but take it from us there are some who could learn a lot from the aforesaid young man. Speculation is rife as to his associations with the fair sex, but it is generally rumored that "Doc is not immune; and investigation has resulted in the discovery of several clues which lead to such remote parts of Brooklyn as Bath Beach and Bay Park. Walter has certainly worked his way into the hearts of his classmates and especially those of his nearer friends; and we will always remember the lad with the genial disposition, trusting that, his quiet, successful way through college is a happy forerunner of the manner in which he will tread life's path.

THERE is one man at Fordham whose room is always hospitably open to visitors, and that individual is Mark Crowley.

Last year he brought distinction to himself and Fordham by his unforgetable performance of Queen Catherine in Henry VIII; a part that required the talent of a sterling and resourceful actor, and Mark acquitted himself nobly. When there was no suitable role for Mark in the Varsity Play this year, due to the small cast, he showed his real metric by playing a silent but efficient part behind the scenes in the character of master of wardrobes. That is the stuff that is a test of real college spirit, and when it comes to a devoted Fordhamite, Mark is "way ahead of the pack However, he stepped into the limelight again in the one-act-play contest this year, and played with his accustomed ease and finish The golf links on the campus have found no more devoted follower than Mark; scarcely a day that he did not lead his fellow players a merry chase across the green Fordham will lose a loyal and devoted sen when Mark leaves for other scenes, but the world will be the gainer.JOSEPH R DENNIS, A B.

Versatility is his maiden name; like Joe Cook, about the only thing he can do is to imitate four Hawaiians. It is related that his first articulate speech on this sphere was an offer to the kid next door to meet him at catchweights in any line of infant sport, from crying for the moon 10 making faces at his maiden aunt. If the thesis on objective evidence is more than so many words, it must be so; for "Joe” can manage with remarkable facility the pigskin, the palaver, and the pasteboards. l ie is by no means a politician, as the word is used among the boys I le has no need to be. for fortune has blessed him with the finest trait that anyone could wish for—an unusual aptitude for contracting sincere and lasting friendships.

ONE of the boys, who did not give us the pleasure of his company during our Freshman and Sophomore years, was none other than Frank, who was heralded from the "American Ruhr"—Kingston. Pa. He immediately forced himself into our midst by his quietly efficient manner. Greatly surprised was 1924 when Frank suddenly bobbed up as a member of the Varsity Football squad. The fact that he remained out with the team that entire season, shows his loyalty and perseverance. As only two of our class were members of that worthy squad. Frank, probably without knowing it, was adding glory to the fair name of 24. This perseverance and loyalty were not only manifest in athletic endeavors, for upon numerous occasions wc have been severely reprimanded for breaking in on his philosophical discussions with his roommate Gerry, or "Gom" as he is commonly known. So quietly did he work that it was just before going to press that we learned of his aspirations, for Frank, we have discovered, toiled diligently during the past summer in the "big town," as he was wont to call it. No matter what profession Frank may choose, wc feel certain that if his interest is as sincere as it has manifested itscll during his short stay with us, he will be a success.FRANCIS X.

IN THE midst of the political wrangling and dissension that ushered in the Freshman Class there emerged one figure that by the power of his eloquence and his sheer fearlessness brought him to the fore and won him the class presidency. That man was "Frank" Downey. It was in many senses a hectic year, but it cannot be said that “Frank" was unequal to the task and he successfully stemmed the tide of discord that arose on all sides. I lis fluency as a speaker won him other honors, for that year he earned a place on the Varsity Debating team. Frank" soon became one of the bulwarks of the Debating Society, and was a member of numerous teams that invaded New England in search of new victories. That these teams were, in the main, successful was in no small degree due to "Frank," for his keen logic, resourcefulness, and eloquence never deserted him. "Frank" has always been something of a filibuster, and when for some reason the professor was detained, he was invariably the leader of the “no-class" faction. He would present a line of logic for skipping that was impregnable, and if. in the course of his persuasive argumentation, the belated teacher arrived and "Frank’s" audience retreated to the classroom, "Frank." disappointed but undismayed, would be the last to file in, greeted by the lusty and consoling cheer of "Throw him out. As an able student, a leader of men and a practical philosopher, "Frank will be best remembered.

DUROSS, A ll "Neilly" Fordham Prep IF YOU are looking for a fellow in real life who is the perfect personification of the maxim “actions speak louder than words," carried out in actual practice, then let us introduce Neil Duross. For he is the least heard-from though by no means the least heard-of fellow in the class He is one of those who use but few words, because they think and feel too deeply and strongly for adequate expression A lover of books, of study and of reflection, his tendencies are toward the quiet restfulness of seclusivcness. Yet he bears none of the distasteful characteristics of the recluse. Open and frank, sympathetic and truthful, he draws to himself a host of friends. He is one of those exquisitely different companions with w hom you can be and not utter a single word, yet feel unmistakably the warm comfort of a thorough mutual understanding. Although he will never find it w ithin himself to tell you he is your friend, you know it w ith infallible certitude, for he could not possibly be anything but a friend to anybody. Though not himself a leader, the leaders must inevitably bow to his kind, for he is of that sturdy, sensible and sound group which must form the very backbone of any movement, and w ithout the support of which the leaders must fail. The same sturdy purpose, strong resolve and unrelenting application which have characterized his participation in extra-curricular activities arc to be found equally prominent in the combined routine of study Our friend is up among the elite in class standing. We do not hesitate to prophesy a successful career for our colleague, and we know of no one among us more apt to be seen without fail at every gathering of Fordham men in the future than his Loyal Highness" Neil Duross.THOMAS A.

TOMMY" is one of the most unassuming, soft spoken and few-worded fellows in the class, and at the same time he is one of the most congenial and likable. In our four years of intimate association we have found him to be possessed of those indefinable yet so potent qualities that win and perpetuate a strong and warm friendship His loyalty to col lege and class have without fail found expression in an energe tic and sympathic support of all Fordham activities. We all like to consider "Tommy one of the prize babies of the class To those w'ho know him best, his development from the knickcrbockcr days of Freshman to the dignified nobility of Senior is almost phenomenal When first we met him the "midnight oil" of the student s lamp held an uncanny attraction for our unobtrusive friend. But. “O Tcmpora, O Mores." a Freshman Dance, a bit of smiling, perfumed beauty in her "Sunday best, a glittering whirl of ballroom brilliance, and the "class infant" had literally "stepped out far in advance of the rest of us. And the class was woefully chanting the dirge: "Bring back my Tommy' to me!" But “Tom" has not forsaken the deeper things of life Throughout his course he has been on active member of the Council of Debate, and his common-sense philosophy and rigid logic have often been potent factors in the weekly verbal tussles of that austere body. And we venture to say that he has been able, with no feelings whatsoever of impending calamity,to carry home his monthly reports— rather a great achievement in these days of failures conditions, and more failures. A sound head and a winning personality. What better combination docs a fellow need for success? And rest assured. "Tommy" has 'em! 1 . i j Ti ty-sixLAWRENCE A. DWYER.

T N THESE days of humdrum sameness it is indeed a refreshing tonic to associate with such a unique character as “Tony.” Most modern young men in striving to be distinctive become monotonously common, while “Larry' seeking the inconspicuous is decidedly unique. In fact, we might borrow the expression of a popular clothier and say he is “distinctively different.” When the “wolf in sheep’s clothing was a much-discussed character. "Larry” proceeded to give to the world a new creation, "the Lion in Ram's clothing." And anyone who observed his grotesque antics and heard his uncanny bellowing is convinced he is a unique “Ram-Lion” at that. What probably has endeared “Tony to his classmates more than all else is his generous heart and deep sincerity. "I lis heart is as sound as a bell and his tongue is the clapper, and what his heart thinks, his tongue speaks. Little wonder that “Larry" stands high in the opinion of his classmates; little wonder that they see nothing hut the choicest fruits of life in store for this unique and honest son of Fordham.

SAY, perhaps on some future occasion a member of the class, in his perusal of this manual, comes to the name. "Fallon." He will pause; and pausing, he will smile; for who could think of "Bob and his pranks without doing so? Always will "Bob " be remembered because of his clever wit. his art of mimicry, his "Buster Keaton" face and his falsetto voice. In Sophomore year, especially, he often threw his classmates into convulsions of laughter in that never-to-be-forgotten English class. Of later years, however. "Bob" has become more serious with the dignity of Junior and Senior; yet never will he be judged so by the Brooklyn contingent; and. as a result, he is continually busy trying to acquit himself in their eyes of innumerable practical jokes. But there is also the serious side of things, and in considering the same we find that "Bob is not lacking in accomplishments. He has already in his College years scored such successes by his musical ability as come to many only after years of endeavor. He is not only a master on the clarinet and saxoplione but lias established as well a fine reputation as a successful orchestra leader. In this capacity he has held up the musical end of debate or play and has also won the admiration of all Fordham men at class dances and a Prom The fact that "Bob has occupied a good place in his studies, notwithstanding his busy outside interests shows that he has energy and ability greater than the average. Despite his great popularity and success. "Bob" has always been a modest, genial, loyal classmate. l:ifly-eightFRKDRRIC T. FINNIGAN, A.B.

As the Editor-in-Chief of the Monthly, his labors were rewarded by the realization that Fordham ranked among the best regarding the publication of its monthly magazine. From the very beginning of his College career he delved into the realms of literature, and in Freshman many of his stories appeared in print Ere long his readers clamored for more. So on through school, until "Fred" in Senior occupied the exalted throne and donned the purple robe of royalty. With the tact of a genius and the skill of an artisan, his obligations as the guiding star of Fordham's leading journalistic endeavor were discharged, as his staff has so often testified, "in a superb manner. The Undergraduate members found in their chief a source of satisfaction, even when some budding poet submitted a disastrous attempt. Fred, however, had naught but praise. But as he has so often said, "the play's the thing," and it was behind the footlights that the Student Body knew him better and loved him best. As Captain Absolute in "The Rivals" it is our candid opinion that he reached his greatest height. "Fred's" future looks bright, indeed. We wonder whether some leading publication will not attempt to outbid some actor's guild for his services. If such be the case, trust "Fred to choose the better. Fifty-nineWILLIAM H. F1SSELL.

We have forgotten almost, how he would entertain and feast them, obtaining the best of the land for their use. or how he was always ready to help them, in journey or labor, with all that was his own. The world still seems kind enough in its way. yet it is a hurried, passing kindness which we soon forget Not so with Bill, however How many times has he been that same welcoming host to us, making us feel almost as if we should come to him for am thing we might need. And his jovial spirit holds you and convinces you that at least some of that old friendship still exists among us. His personality can perhaps best be brought out by the fact that he is on the staff of some of our leading papers doing special interv iew s. There was one occasion where his duties in this capacity required that he attend a notable gathering of New York's leading entertainers. As it began late, it ended in the early morning hours, leaving him but a few minutes to lull ill another engagement that same morning. So pressed was he for time that he was obliged to complete his change of attire in the taxi which sped him to his train Such are the troubles of a popular and busy man.

That such a friendship should endure far beyond the ordinary period of a schoolboy affection, is clear evidence of the stability of character that has endeared them to their class. Not a little of this stability is to be found in Otto himself The earnest, unvarying diligence with which he has attacked every one of the many tasks that have been entrusted to his capable shoulders, has been admired and appreciated by the class. Whether the work in hand was for the Council of Debate or the Mimes and Mummers or for 7he Ram, it was always done as well as the hand of man could do it Not that Otto was a mere mechanical machine. Nothing could be further from the truth. In the first place, who ever saw an automaton act upon the tragic stage or escort a real live member of the fairer sex to various and sundry dances? Really, it isn't done' And again, who ever knew a machine that was as fond of humor or so full of the milk of human kindness as our own Otto’ We can have naught but good feeling toward this man who will, as surely as the day will come when the night is over, be worthy of his Alma Mater.

Anthony entered Fordham, perhaps to do or die, but rather we think to take things as they came and to make the most of them. A good student from the start, something of a philosopher, we could not help thinking that he was possessed of other worlds than ours, fairer and with less care, for when the storms of teachers lashed our shores. Anthony sailed on serene. During his Senior year he attained to the dignity of a member of the Faculty in the Prep, and we have it on authority that he is a mighty good teacher.

YOU would never consider him a "college boy;" rather a man of affairs. For "Al" is quite an old young fellow. He converses in the profound tones of a sentencing judge and with the rapidity of one rushed for moments in the presence of so many weighty matters. In our four years' acquaintance we have found him ever shy of the limelight ; always willing to answer the call of others. You will never find him thrusting himself impetuously into the accomplishment of one line of endeavor to the consequent neglect of others. He is marked rather by the efficient, consistent and conscientious performance of all tasks in every detail. This perhaps accounts for the fact that he holds the rare distinction of never having "flunked" an Exam. But a good man cannot long save himself from the clutches of those who realize he is a rare possession and arc seeking his type. The Mimes and Mummers were not to be denied in this respect, and "Al proved the sagacity of their judgment by displaying real dramatic ability in one-act plays. The Glee Club, too, has demanded his efforts and many's the time his voice has swelled the merry chorus. As a member of the Senior Reception Committee and the Maroon Business Staff, he evinced an ability that augurs well for the future. Perhaps "Al's" most cherished outdoor amusement is the soothing game of golf. His resplendent "knickers" have on many occasions added a genuine collegiate touch to the campus.

But when we had made it our business to become better acquainted with the “silent one. we recognized his manly, sturdy and splendid qualities, and fast grew to know him well. “Handy." having finished the prescribed high-school course, matriculated as a Pre-Med at Fordham during September, nineteen hundred and twenty. Soon he realized the value of a college degree, and so we had the pleasure of having him as a classmate during our Junior and Senior years. Quiet and sedate, nevertheless we saw him as a contributor to each issue of the Mendel Club Bulletin During the Junior Year "Handy" specialized in research chemistry under Doctor Carl P. Sherwin. which led to his present position—that of assistant technician under Doctor Kiessenfeld at Harlem Hospital where extensive work is being done in the study of rickets. Evidently, “Handy" expects to enter the medical world, and we must congratulate him on his choice for we all have ample evidence of net only his conscientious and diligent work but also of his aptitude for his chosen profession During his philosophical course, his contributions towards many discussions were always greatly appreciated by "Twenty-Four." When we reached hylomor-phism. “Handy's" excellent arguments, drawn from his protracted study of chemistry helped to clear up many of our hazy ideas on the subject.

THE keynote of Leo's character is quietly brilliant capability. He is a jack of all trades and master of more than one. I lonorman of his class in Freshman Year, he relinquished supremacy to men of more ample leisure when a goodly portion of his time was usurped by special studies. Even at that, when some of us in physics lab. ran into a stone wall spiked and covered with broken glass. Leo's mathematical assistance furnished a fine take-off in clearing the obstruction. That is one side of the medal. The obverse reveals ''Lee" as candidate for the Varsity Baseball squad, donning his togs hastily between classes for a workout; and the Interclass baseball championship was attained in Junior Year mainly through his splendid relief-pitching after the slants of other slabmen had been plastered all over the lot. He is equally adept at tootling a saxophone or tickling a piano, and in his summer habitat of Shcepshead Bay his music hath charms, it is hinted, to soothe many a far from savage breast. No doubt, it was such diversion which inspired those casual contributions of verse to the I'ordhanx Monthly in his impressionable Sophomore Year. Harrington, M D., such is Leo's ambition; and no crystal gazing is required to predict that lie will lx a darned good one. Sixty-eightWALTER V HAVES. A. B. "Noisev" Sc.

The youngest voter in the Hayes family moves w ith never a fanfare of trumpets or clamor of loud dispute, but silent as a rubber heel, peaceful as a Quaker convention However, w hen he is as sometimes happens, drawn into conversation, he can like Chapman, speak cut loud and plain. Comment of his is shrewdly to the point incisive as Cellini's stilleto, as forceful and irresistible as a landslide. Since high school days, and his Freshman Year at Brooklyn College when he played baseball and football, Walter has forsworn strenuous activity. Quiet efficiency distinguishes all his actions; he is one of the few men in the class who are never known to worry audibly about exams. It is the quiet poker player who garners the chips; and since life is admittedly a gamble, the silent Jerseyite ought to make out handsomely. Sixty-runeFRANK P. IIEFFERNAN.

THE Heffernan ancestral wickeyup is pitched somewhere among the hills of Staten Island. One may conceivably twist a few points for the influence of environment theory out of Frank's stature and features. Like his native hills, he is tall, and pleasant to the eyes. We have no doubt he is the sheik of New Brighton and adjacent shores. "Hell does not stop, like the cast-iron deer on the front lawn, with being ornamental. On the undefeated class baseball team he ambled about the outfield, gobbling up whatever stray smashes came his way; at times, switching to the infield, he covered first base like an air-tight triple-riveted mortgage. Further as a halfback on the class football team, he absorbed a good deal of punishment and iodine and acquired not a little glory. Incidentally, with entire and, from the communistic point of view, laudable willingness to distribute the fruit of labor, he placed more than one tackier in a position to absorb, even as himself, a fair share of iodine. Clean sport, it has been said, is a good preparation for life. Frank has served well his apprenticeship. He asks no favors from fortune: though fate may, as Villon puts it, smite him hard above the thighs, he will shake off her tackle and carry the ball down the field to that ultimate goal toward which vc all tend—success SeventyP.

UNQUESTIONABLY, the men who deny perpetual motion have never met George I low ley, for he is perpetual motion personified. George is always on the go—in class, on the campus anJ in every school activity. As the live w ire of the Class of 1924 he will live perennially in its memory. His activity is vested in the saving grace of humor. Humor and he have gone arm-in-arm through four college years, and where George is. there gloom is not. George has been an editor of The Ram for three years, holding down the sport page, and in his Senior year he shaped the editorial policy of that important section. As editor he has always been on the go, sacrificing time and pleasure to insure a sport page second to none in any college paper. His work has met with abundant success, and The Ram in its sporting columns is abreast of the leaders of college journalism. In that field of endeavor he leaves a legacy of good w ill and capability that will not be easy to live up to. His work on the Maroon is marked by the same ability and energy that the Ram demanded His four years at Eordham have won for him a place in the memory of his class that will never be effaced. His ready wit has livened up the duller moments of our college days, his indefatigable energy has steadied many a wavering class activity We are loath to lose him and are cheered only in that his passing from our ranks heralds his entry into a field of human endeavor, medicine, where men of cheerful energy and proven capability are wanted GEORGE A.

The handsome iad pictured above started his education very correctly at St. Peter s Prep, where he was a football player of no mean ability and student-extraordinary. Then there was a lapse of two years—seclusion and mystery surrounded his disappearance from the limelight. "Joe" was at Seton Hall, but the lad was growing into young manhood, and so wisdom came to him after two dark years. "Joe" stepped over to Fordham in September. 1922. It was a Lucky Strike for old Fordham In two years' time "Joe" has made nearly as many friends as there are students in the college—personality and even temperament plus wit did this. What a temperament! Were we to appear fatherly, we should suggest a diplomatic career for "Kel." hut as he has already decided upon business and that to be the glass industry and as we feel certain that he will make a success of it we shall offer no advice. We may have drawn "Joe" to be rather youngish and he is humorously so at times. However, in him Fordham has produced a well-balanced man, stable and firm as the Rock of Gibraltar; one of the clever, never-say-die type. There is a certain girl from one of the several Oranges who is ofttim.es seen leaning heavily upon "Nitro's" arm He denies that there is anything serious to it. saying that the young lady is subject to fainting spells at times, and thus relies upon his husky support To see them both dash gaily out upon the ballroom floor is to sort of belittle Joe's" story.

"Sea-Lion' Regis High School Business Manager Maroon; Business Manager "Ram (j); Business Manager Diamond I rack Meet Program (4); Athletic Association Play ( ). ONE looking at the quietly-serious countenance of Andrew J. Kennedy, and noting beneath, the lurking smile, perceives there ability and firmness of character perfectly balanced by poise and humor's saving grace. Radicated in his soul is a most uncanny faculty for coaxing reluctant shekels from their doting possessors; capability in financial matters lias marked him through his four college years, and where but three shekels bloomed before, there now bloom six beneath his nurturing care. In his Junior Year there passed into his hands the business managership of The Ram. The paper had been revived but a short time previous and its continuance was contingent upon a strong financial basis "Andy" constructed that basis and laid the firm business foundation on which rests the paper to-day. His unanimous choice as Business Manager of the Maroon was as inevitable as it was fortunate. To that task he has devoted himself unstintedly; his loyalty and enthusiasm, that are of the warp and woof of his character, have never been used to better advantage. The Maroon of 1924 is in consequence not alone a magnificent vale of the class to Alma Mater but a splendid tribute as well to the loyalty and enthusiasm of one of her most devoted sons. A loyal son of 1924 and a loyal friend, that life has destined for him a distinguished career seems almost trite to remark. Yet in future days we shall remember him not so much in the light of present achievements, but we shall think of him best as the true friend and splendid pal with whom we shared the sorrow's and joys of our college years.

JIM" is the type of a fellow to whom one becomes almost immediately attached on account of his straightforward, honest manner and friendly disposition. His is a quiet and unassuming nature until you come to know him—then, however, is he talkative enough and is ever ready to help a friend in need. In our last year we saw "Jim" come into his managership, and long will he be remembered on account of his perseverance and quiet executive ability in managing the squad. It remains for others to tell of the work and long, hard preparing and putting into execution of a football schedule that was this year most remarkable; for "Jim," being of a somewhat retiring personality, would tell of none of it himself. But the brilliant games and the efficient manner in which the entire situation was handled reflects great credit on such a manager as we had in "Jim." A fine scholar and an exceptionally gifted pianist, "Jim" has won a multitude of friends and admirers. Often has he offered his musical talent for play or smoker and never has he been appealed to for the use of his services that he has not most willingly contributed his every effort. Hidden under a quiet and earnest demeanor, "Jim" has qualities of sterling character that will stand him in good stead; and with ability, perseverance and energy such as he possesses, we predict that the medical world will be richer with the acquisition of "Jim" Kidder Seventy-sevenANDREW W.

IT SEEMS almost impossible that a loyal Brooklynite should travel all the way to Manhattan to do his preparatory work, but such a case does exist, and "Andy stands ready at any time to prove it. And it shall be done logically, for though his early training has taken place far from his native haunts, he retains that natural ability for mastering the problems of philosophy which seems to be a part of all those who inhabit the nether regions. This much might suggest a serious, unpleasant fellow , but not so Andrew. It would take but a few hours in a class with him to find him the owner of as much wit and pep as any other ten fellows together Let a laboratory period prolong its tedious minutes, giving only a myriad of calculations at its close, Andrew , not content to calmly attack the problem, would have to name the steps after prehistoric beasts, thereby forcing the equations to evolve of themselves, and likewise proving three things the correctness of the problem: the fact of evolution; and his ability as a modern scientist Perhaps this explains why he is liked by all w ho know him. Who of us may not some day. a few years hence, find him just as lively and as cheerful as ever, ready to help us as much as he can. our own "Andy." and M.D This he says will be his course in life, and he certainly has one universal cure in his jovial disposition.

Let the professor of any other course present his heaviest guns to a quaking class, on Dick's" face there is nothing but that well-known smile This does not apply merely to the classics as they are called but even to the courses in that we laughingly refer to as the sciences.

It was his persistence in thus overcoming obstacles that marked him as the man he is I lis earnestness of purpose and indefatigability of effort have won and will continue to win for him the admiration and respect of his classmates But respect is not liking, and it is their love for "Dick" that will emblazon his name forever in the hearts of '24 This love was won by his honest, always present smile and the amiable good fellowship and cordial humor that characterize McCabe the gentleman We feel no hesitancy in proclaiming that the energetic expenditure of intelligence for w hich we honor him, will make him successful in years to come Eighty-twoRICHARD H.

"Dick came to Fordham in 1921, after he had divided the previous year between Holy Cross and Brooklyn College Perhaps his forte is tea and dates and just what the ideal collegian should be. However, we cannot get away from the fact that he had a most convincing line with the so-called gentler sex and that invariably he went “big Nevertheless, in this do not let us get any other impression than that “Dick" was a "regular fellow.

I le most hospitably offered his room in St. John's Hall to his classmates, that they, too, might enjoy those refreshing memories of college days. When, in later years we can reap the benefits of these friendships, we can most heartily thank him for the good-natured atmosphere which he gave to his room When "Dick" leaves Fordham, we cannot see how he can help Hit make friends in that world of bigger things.

If reports be correct, rhe truth is much (we hope not too much) otherwise Leo has always been an enthusiastic supporter of Fordham in a practical, nor thcorerical. manner. That one will meet him at her games and dances is invariably a good bet. Since, after college, his course is set in the Fordham tradition, it needs no psychic powers to fortell that he has a penchant for law. Indeed, so deep was his interest in the subject that he studied at the Woolworth during his Senior year, which, let it be understood, is a pretty large order.

Unlike a real politician, although he speaks very forcibly and convincingly on his side of a question, you know that he means every w-ord that he says and is not aiming to please the people.

Just think of all the miles he has covered journeying from South Norwalk every day, and all that he has seen and heard.

His athletic ability has not confined itself to a vicarious indulgence, however, for his speedy line-plunging and his accurate kicking and forward-passing resulted in many of the gains that kept our eleven undefeated through four strenuous years, It is not the actor and the athlete that will live in the memory of his friends; their most vivid memories will be of "Jack, the man.

MIDDLETON. A B "Stf.vf." ForJham Prep Council of Debate; Mimes and Mummers (i, 2); Class Football ( , 2). Z NE ol the finest men it has ever been our pleasure to meet is the gentleman whose picture adorns this page. The difficulty in writing a sketch of this kind about a fellow like “Steve" is that there is so much to say. and such a little space to say it in. that no matter what we say, there must remain a great deal unsaid. This being the case, we apologize to his friends (and everyone who knows h:m is his friend) for all the omissions we are bound to make. "Steve," you must know, is heart and soul bound up in the art of music. By music we mean not the ordinary melody that you and I appreciate and like, but the swelling, thunderous chords and the wistful plaintive strains and all the minor things that go to make operas and symphonies and things like that Now. being "Steve," it is his nature to know all that can be known about anything in w hich he is interested and, consequently, he has amassed a volume of knowledge that in anyone else would be almost miraculous. But his music has not stopped there. It has imparted to its devotee the finer feelings and the truer motives that are found in an artistic nature. And when this artistic nature is conjoined with an intellect as brilliant as is his. w'e merely call attention to his class-work; it is redundant to predict great things; they cannot help but come. It is not for these intellectual qualities that we shall miss "Steve" most, however It is for the jovial smile, the ready wit, the kindly word, that we shall remember him most vividly, for it was those qualities that attracted us most away back in Freshman when we first, met this engaging gentleman: "Steve" Middleton. Ninety-oneFRANCIS J. MULLER. A.B. “Max" Regis High School Class Baseball; Class hoot ball. FRANK is better known to us as "Max Muller ; nicknamed after a famous German philosopher. He has the esteem of his classmates as a good student Also, he is very much at home on the baseball field, having been a steady catcher on the class team When someone tells "Max' a clever piece of wit. he is rewarded u ith such a hearty laugh as would cheer any pessimist. His genial nature has made him a popular figure in the classroom. "Max' has a pleasant hobby: he delights in gathering a few kindred souls who revere the Muse of Music, and then they proceed to serenade their classmates between class hours. He is one of the charter members of the old class quartet, and many of us believe he is good enough to grace the boards of a big-time circuit. With fond recollections we shall all remember "Max’—the singing philosopher, and on the pathway of life, may he always have the joyous heart to sing, while sweet roses of memory enthrall him, the words of the poet “For mine is the lay that lightly lloats. And mine are the murmuring, dying notes That fall as soft as snow on the sea. And melt in the heart as instantly!" Ninety-twoJAMES A. MURPHY, A B. "Jim'' Xavier High School HERE we have determination and energy as the greater part of the make-up of "Jim Murphy. He has been too unassuming to enter the larger fields of extra-curriculum activity, but in whatever he has the time and inclination to be interested. "Jim" has show n his ability to get results w ith his calculating, practical methods. "Jim" is a first-class student and has developed an enviable knack of doing what should be done in the right time, instead of procrastinating as most of us mortals do. whether it is reading some article that the professor recommends as valuable or wending his way to New Haven to root for the team He is a philosopher in his own way. and while not shouting his opinions from the floor as others might do. does not need anybody’s assistance to think for himself in matters of controversy. "Jim" has a vital interest in baseball and likes to discuss the inside points with that fiery enthusiast—Bill Jones, just as you and I would dissect the season's drama. Handball and punchball are "Jim's" shining sporting activities. To those who are lucky enough to know him best, "Jim" is the acme of true friendship and loyalty. Somewhat reserved in a general assemblage. "Jim" shows among his friends a warmth of mutual interest, a loyalty that acts instead of promises, and a gentlemanly character, ennobling in its example.

George has wrapped a festive finger about many a flagon of Chinese wassail at the tea-battles of the baby-saving coterie And it is whispered in the bazaars, O Caliph, that not all the babies of his interest arc Chinese. In class affairs the big lad is as active as a cross-eyed cat in a bird store. Always like Barkis, he is willin'; and the desire of the moth for the Niemeyer swallow tail is fruitless as the barren fig tree. As chairman of several dance committees, notably that of the Senior Hop: as Sophomore treasurer as Chairman of the Commencement Week Committee; in numerous official capacities, his pep and personality have shone out like good deeds in a naughty world. On occasion, steeling his heart, donning a ferocious parody of his usual jocund smile, he has put up a slashing game at tackle for the class eleven. Waggish, too. is George. From campus happenings he has carved many a jest as neatly turned as Ann Pennington’s ankles. His column of humor in The Ram was. truly, the space that launched a thousand quips. Now he goes forth to meet, like that other George, whatever lurking dragons may await him. You may depend on it they will fare badly, for it is quite true (legend, through some oversight, omits to mention it) that dragons are easily vanquished by one who comes against them with laughter in his heart.

There has scarcely been an activity at the "Big U which has not swept him to its support ; and more frequently which has not found him among its leaders. From Freshman infancy. "Joe" has been a live worker in the Mimes and Mummers. 1 le has directed his efforts mainly along stagecraft lines and the changing of difficult stage settings in record time. Now and then, however, he has been lured from back-stage to the boards, and he has acquitted himself nobly in one-act plays. The cinder paths claim him as an ardent devotee, and he has. among other things, sprinted into the possession of a remarkable watch which has endowed its owner with the mystic ability of telling the remainder of his weary mates at precisely what moment the sweet bell will sound the close of class. When he is not winning the plaudits of the "hot polloi, himself, "Joe is leading cheers for others. On the day of any big game, you may see him resplendent in the Maroon and White of Flead Cheerleader. Our friend's philosophy of life is "Why Worry?" You can read it each week between the lines of the Ram Humor Column of which he is editor.

DOWN from the mountains of Vermont came this sturdy specimen of manhood. Big in heart and body, every fiber of his be ng vibrating with the flush of life, little wonder that Leo achieved distinction in athletics at Fordham. Nor was his time spent solely in winning glory on the fields of sport, but. rather, studies were foremost in ‘‘O Bie's" life. Appreciating, as few of us do. the real value of the education afforded him, he applied himself with characteristic determination and succeeded in acquiring a well-rounded knowledge. No description would really portray the true character of our hero unless some mention were made of his continued congeniality. It is a real tonic to meet Leo on the handball court any afternoon and be greeted with his cheery salutation. Conversant with all topics of the day, he has ample material upon which to draw for his pleasantries. Whether the Green Mountains with their majestic beauty, the humdrum existence of the metropolis or the sunny skies of California are favored by the presence of this care-free wanderer, we feel ever so confident that fortune must smile upon this happy son of Fordham.

A REVELING, prancing entity of exuberant vitality—"Ray" O'Brien. He has the happy faculty of taking the sunshine of life and leaving the rain for more sober spirits. As a close friend he is loyal and generous beyond hounds And as just a friend (for he is incapable of the hard feelings that make enemies), he is mutely indulgent to faults and loudly commendable of virtues. If you are discouraged, go to "Ray. He will brighten you anew. If you seek support, he will lend it and leave you feeling as though you had conferred the favor rather than himself. He simply cannot turn a fellow down Fordham points to "Ray"' as one of her most accomplished public speakers Whether it be in more staid moments of close-reasoned debate or midst the furor of class politics, or in the thick of fierce discussions in the Council of Debate, or from the rear of an electioneering car, "Ray has always won his point, and also his audience. Few can resist either his personality or his oratory. One so active in college life could not help but be raised above his fellows. Sophomore Year found him class president, and in Senior he was insisting on Parliamentary procedure in the Council of Debate. In after years, when we are nurturing political ambitions, we shall ask for "Ray O’Brien and lx ushered into the sumptuous offices of New Jersey’s governor Undoubtedly, he will be re-elected, if he doesn’t grant too many pardons.

Tl IE pensive face of "Dick" O'Brien cannot fail to arrest your attention. stamped so unmistakably as it is with the mark of talent and character. In the four years that "Dick" has been with us there is hardly a field of school activity in which his versatile ability has not been employed, and that successfully Drama and literature and even class politics have been the media cf his talents, and each has succumbed to his masterful touch. "Dick" is the actor par excellence of the Class of 1924, and in a group of men so lavishly endowed with histrionic ability, this is indeed a mark ot rare distinction In "Dick" this pre-eminence is even enhanced, for on his shoulders has fallen the ermine mantle of Fordham dramatic traditions, and to those traditions he has been ever faithful. To us it seems that even as this heritage has honored him in the bestowing, so has he honored ii in the bearing. But drama is not alone "Dick's forte. The Maroon in its literary perfection is his last abiding contribution to the Class of 1924. As its Editor-in-Chief he has spared neither time nor self in that arduous task, and his artistic endeavors of past years have reached their magnificent culmination in this, his final work as an Undergraduate of Fordham. Our faith in "Dick's future greatness will not be misplaced. Yet the honors and distinctions of later years will never efface from our memory, "Dick as we know him now—true classmate, a real son of Fordham and one whose loyal friendship has been often tried and never found wanting. Ninety-eightCHARLES J. O CONNOR. A.B. "Charlie,” "Legs Xavier High School ONE of our most "commutable" classmates is “Charlie," who hails from White Plains, the mystic land of the midnight sun. Prone to be rather reserved, it is only a chosen few who know him for what he is; a regular fellow with a keen sense of humor and an even disposition. "Charlie's" long jaunts to the home town have not left him much time to engage in college activities, although he has helped now and then to "keep the home fires burning" in "Pete's" famous establishment, which with Keith's and Bronx Park have become aptly known as "the Fordham University extension school." In fact, we think he has his eve on the laurels of Willie Hoppe. It may be truthfully said of "Charlie" that he pursues "the even tenor of his ways," consistently maintaining an equilibrium in his studies that shows more than a gentleman’s knowledge of his subjects. Perhaps the secret of his success might be culled from one of the conductors on the New York Central, for we have no doubt that this journey proves the "psychological" moment in "Charlie's" battle for a diploma. A loyal bordhamite, a scholar and a sportsman, "Charlie" will undoubtedly bring renown to the town that proudly calls him son. IS Ninety-nineGERRARD W. O’MALLEY.

To it he has devoted the great part of his go-getting energies; a more than average success is his by right of conquest.

Since his inception at Fordham his wit and optimism have been a source of unbounded pleasure to all those with whom lie has come in contact, which means everyone at Fordham. Needless to remark, the company of this happy youth is much sought after; nor is his popularity confined to one sex. But beneath his pleasant exterior there is a sincerity deep and profound. The unfailing regularity with which Ward attends all Fordham activities is but an indication of his finest characteristic—fidelity. "True as a needle to the pole. Or as a dial to the sun." Thus has the poet described the constancy with which Ward's companions will always associate the memory of their optimistic friend. Even at this early date, the business world has acknowledged his keenness of mind, and the clay is not far distant when the O'Neill Transportation Company will welcome into its ranks the happy personality of one of Fordham's faithful sons.

AFFABLE, easy-going "Gab" is one of the unfortunate commuters who live far out in the wilds of Brooklyn, four transfers and a dog-team from civilization His triumphal progress to the portals of learning each day is traceable usually through a long line of broken-armecl subway and "L guards, emitting what is commonly termed a blue streak—a sort of "follow the blue line’ affair. What is that the poet says? Oh. yes. "the bravest are the tenderest Quite so! At least, in Frank's case. His is an unique distinction, that of receiving more invitations to sorority dances than any two other men in the class. There is a possible connection between the fact and his uncanny ability to absorb psychological nuances in a Roancrgcan subway train The wiles of the speaker sex arc surely, ro such concentrative power, transparent as the latest Parisian importation. Like an adolescent Ulysses, Frank wanders always with eyes hazed in an unremitting dream of final return.

Nor is his heart given entirely to football. Ice and tennis court hold a magnetic attraction for him that not even the luxurious charms of motoring can break.

No matter what troubles an unkind fate sent down to test his genial spirit, he met them cheerfully and. by the same token, conquered them We feel compelled by veracity to add here that any troubles "Phil encountered in his collegiate journey were sent him by the aforementioned unkind fare, for they never were the result of carelessness or lack of application. Of course, we might hint that recent years have found "Phil " more and more eager to harken to the Lorelei than the years when lie prided himself on being a gold-medal student What we mean to infer here, is that Friend Philip has rather scored Minerva in favor of the alluring Terpsichore. Not that he has completely forsaken his earlier love, for he can devote a great deal of intelligent concentration to studies whenever he feels the need or the desire. Yet this is but one side. Properly to know the intellectual, one must be acquainted with the jocular, loyal Fordhamite “Flop." If he has not spent precious hours on the athletic field, he has spent them in the stands and rare indeed was the Fordham affair at w hich "Flop was conspicuous by his absence.

Coming to Fordham with the record of having led his class while at St. Peter's, "Robbie." in his four years at Fordham, certainly has lived up to the remarkable record that preceded him as well as all the nice things said about him. "Robbie" has often been envied because of the ease with which he grasps not only scientific but also most abstruse metaphysical truths As a proficient student he is unexcelled. In our Sophomore Year more than once was he called, "Help of the weak." when extricating some of his less fortunate brethren from the mazes of a physics report. Self-contained, quiet, unassuming. "Rob" is. nevertheless, most popular among his classmates. As regards true Fordham spirit and willingness at all times to help his friends. "Robbie" is " ‘way out in front of the pack."

Coming to us with a reputation as a skilled exponent of the manly art. it was but a few weeks before we, as well as the Sophomores, realized that his fame was well founded. Yet. like the knights of old. his prowess was never exercised except in defense of some worthy cause. "In arguing, too. Sansone owned his skill." To this fact both students and professors will testify. His keen mind seems to thrive on the discussion of the most abstruse problems We can scarce refrain from stealing the thunder of the poet who said, "How can we rank thee upon glory's page, Thou more than soldier and just less than sage."

The way of the "just-arrivcd-at-collcgc is indeed hard, but the "fellow from Chicago." as he was then called, soon broke down all barriers of reserve and speedily became known as "Andy." From the first day. "Andy" has been a booster of Fordham and a live class man His vigorous efficiency soon commanded recognition, and when the fur of the Junior Elections had ceased flying. "Andy was serenely lodged in the office of class secretary. His reliability, interest and tireless energy manifested themselves in the performance of the duties of his office, and he became an important factor in the smooth execution of class affairs. He acquitted himself so well in this regard that he was chosen to a second term of office in Senior; rather a large order for one handicapped by a belated entrance into Fordham life. The same sterling business qualities exhibited themselves in his gratifying service on the Junior Prom Patron Committee to which he was appointed; and the consistent success of the Senior Receptions throughout the year is due in no small measure to his efforts on the Senior Reception Committee.

He was busy cheating the sandman as a reporter on the New York Tribune. You may have noticed his name over a scintillating write-up of some spectacular flurry in the sporting world. At present he moves in the mists of anonymity as Assistant Sporting Editor of the Tribf and he no longer arrives home with the milk. He doesn't have to; and the milkman would only cadge him for an Annie Oakley. As News Editor of The Ram, Joe turned in a brilliant performance.

Nor docs he confine his prize-winning activities to the cinder path and field events alone; one of his proudest exhibits is a silver medal awarded him for carrying away the highest honors in his Junior Class. Such a combination of athletic and intellectual ability is indeed a rare thing in college life of the present day. Indeed, some might think that these manifold honors, have a harmful effect on the young man; not so, however, with "Wef, for he is possessed of a nature that is unassuming and genial.

I f someone w ere to ask us to select a shining example of true Christian gentility and real vigorous manhood, we would choose none other than our friend from Croton Falls. Manly in appearance, always ready to do his share in Fordham activities, it is only his natural humility that kept him from carving a more prominent niche in Fordham’s Hall of Fame. Seldom was his voice raised in intellectual encounter, yet w hen he did speak there fell from his lips choice morsels of wisdom so that we are inclined to think that he thought more and spoke less than any man in the class. His advice always valuable, and his opinion always respected, it will be the world's loss if he docs not arise to a position of great prominence. One Hundred Nineteen EDMUND XAVIER, A.B.

Downey Richard B. O'Brien William R. Meagher Raymond O'Brien George A. Brooks President ice-President Secretary Treasurer Historian IN THE dawning glory of the collegiate—pardon us—scholastic year 1920-1921, the Glass of 1924 was admitted to the sacred precincts of Fordham University. I nheralded. unsung, we came, unnoticed save for the surreptitious threats of certain “Savage Sophomores." With dauntless hearts and quaking knees we met the attack of the ail-powerful Faculty; with the result that our band was divided into three phalanxes. The first section was placed under the tutelage of Mr. J. Kearney, S.J.; the second was given to the care of Rev. Father Mattimore, and in the third, Mr R Gannon S J . ruled supreme. When the first regular school week had sunk into oblivion, we had elected our board of officers and an Executive Council. F. X. Downey was president; R. B. O'Brien, vice-president; W. R. Meagher, secretary; and R F. O'Brien, treasurer. The Sectional Executive Council was comprised of Crowley. Brooks O'Brien, Chambers. McMahon and Minogue An imposing assemblage, indeed, and capable of coping w ith the most clever stratagems of our brotherly mentors, the Class of '23! Yea, even to the insidious attack ol the Green Cap, we proved our mettle. Though the season was late, our constitutional right to the fragrance of the wicked weed depended upon a successful football team to engage in combat the eleven of '23. Accordingly, a team was organized and coached under Mr. Kearney, S.J. Two victories in two consecutive games proved forever that the morale of 24 was perfect. The "right to smoke" was granted! Moreover, like the royal sportsmen they are, '2 3 regaled us with luscious doughnuts and such-like festive delicacies at a smoker. In the realm of basketball, too. success was curs. Manager Noble's brilliance in arranging an excellent schdeule was only equaled by Captain Hannigan's ability as a leader in winning games. Only the sad fatalities of Mid-Year's interfered with the continued victories of a team to which Fordham could point with pride But the hand of fate recognizes no rank; and so, like the Arabs, we said, "Kismet," and bade our schedule a sad farewell. One Hundred I'wenty-lhreeIn the spring, the siren-call of the Lorelei echoed alluringly in the corridors and classrooms. (King Baseball beckoned to his abject slaves of '24 and they answered right willingly.) Manager Raymond O'Brien had arranged a series of games for his baseball team that brooked no rival. Practice was started. A tentative team was formed, and matched with Fordham Prep. Then, for the first time, defeat came like some evil bird of night to settle on the banners of our class. And since. When troubles come they come not single spies, but in battalions." the bird returned So twere best to draw the veil of silence, and on our score-cards mark Rain—no games.' However, we can truthfully say that we lost but one game in the season In the social w hirl too, we w ere numbered among those most decidedly present The smoker held in early October was tremendously successful. Our first dance, held on December 2 d. at the aldorf-Astoria, w ill live forever in the annals of most joyous times. A second dance in May at the same hotel, brought new praise to the Dance Committee and more enjoyment to the devotees of Terpsichore. Very rarely has the social activity of any class been found energetic enough to lend support to two such triumphs. The Athletic Association Play brought to light more or less histrionic ability in the persons of R. B O'Brien. J. Masterson, A. Kennedy. B. McMahon, E. Amend, and F. Finnigan. When the school play was produced. Messrs. Carroll, Kidder, Masterson. Frank. Middleton. Minoguc, Purdue. Xavier. Brcslin. McMahon and Finnigan were again given parts. Now let anyone glance over that array of names and say that Thespis is forsaken in '24 Let us glance now at the work of ’24 as Freshmen in the Council of Debate. We find Downey, Meagher. Hamilton, Gerald and Raymond O'Brien on the lecture groups: Downey and Meagher on the teams chosen to represent Fordham against U. of P. and 1 loly Cross The highest acknowledgment of his talent as a speaker was given William Meagher in his election as captain of both teams Now. to go as it were, from the practical to the aesthetic we approach the enchanted domain of Chopin, of Beerhoven and of Mendelssohn—in other words, we come to the University Orchestra Twenty-four is well represented here by Messrs. Dennin. Whalen. Dwyer and still another of the O'Brien tribe—Leo O Brien this time. He whose middle name is Tympanum—Mr Wolfe, that is— lends grace and dignity to the drums. Still in the realms of the aesthetic, we mention The Fordham Monthly Poetic effusions by Messrs. Meagher, Cassidy, Losinsky. Harrington and Finnigan, with short stories by Messrs Brooks McCarthy. Cassidy. Whalen and Finnigan are sufficient indications that 24 was not lacking in literary talent. Mr. Finnigan was appointed associate editor of the monthly To Mr. George Brooks fell the honor of writing the History of '24 for the Maroon; a very happy selection or election as it turned out.

Sophomore Year! After the influx cf new faces, coming from very many different and diverse places, we slowly settled down, for we were scheduled to elect new class officers. Splendid executives we picked who guided us through a somewhat stormy yet successful scholastic year Duties of being a Sophomore next called and so we hastily but wisely ‘‘parked’ little green caps upon the 'Campus Babies" and also as a reminder of our good intentions presented each member of that class, which later turned out to be a most estimable group called 1925, a small Book of Rules—something like Hoyle on "Bridge" the rules were the law. Much to our sorrow', the usual Sophomore-Freshman Fooiball game never took place because of disagreement on the date. However, '24 kept her ever-spotless athletic record as white as could be by marching through the "then" Seniors (1922) to the score of 1j-o. McQuade, McAniff, Gan its. and Masterson were some combination in the backficld. Garrity's Varsity caliber finally showed itself during our Junior Year when he was made first Varsity Fullback. Next came our Class Dance, w hich was a great social success Thus ended the fall season. Stepping to the Auditorium Building any day. one would have found 1924 divided into three sections w ith Father Oates. Father Stedler, and Father Treacy at the helm of Latin. Greek, and English, respectively. The policy of a united class in Evidences, which introduced Father Cox to us, was continued. This w'as the time when Dr. Rose began having his troubles in chemistry, and Father O Laughlin for the first but far from the last time told us to "Protect the Public" during Mechanics Lecture. Wc shall never forget the advice on manhood and the practical knowledge from hard knocks we derived during this year. Chemistry Class was a night-mare (will wc ever forget it?) on both sides of the fence, but when Doctor Sherwin finally took charge, the sun broke through the clouds Spring came and with it many absentees, and then the First Interclass Track Meet w hich, of course. 1924 won by a handy margin. We have as a Class participated in the four following spring and fall Interclass 'brack Meets, and always 24 won—and won by a handy margin each time—once by over 30 points. The Varsity Play presented by the Mimes and Mummers, nee the "Dramatic Association." was none other than the well known "She Stoops to (Conquer," re-titled for various self-evident reasons "The Mistakes of a Night Well w'as ’24 represented in that splendid presentation Messrs.

Messers Downey. Raymond O’Brien, and Meagher added to the glory of our Alma Mater by their splendid work in the Varsity Debate against [Boston College at Boston. Turning to the field of literature we find also Mr. Finnegan as Associate Editor of the Monthly, the name of ’24 s "Man of Destiny." Mr. Meagher as Associate Editor of the Monthly and Circulation Manager of The Ram, revivified this year by the industrious Charles Kenna. 2 $ Messrs. Richard O’Brien. Harrington. Brooks. Downey, and Freeman each month contributed many splendid articles to the Monthly, that aged and splendid publication On the stall’ of The Ram, w hich has risen to such prominence today, wc found Messrs [hooks and Masterson of 24 as associate editors; Mr. Niemeyer in charge of "W it and Humor, and the spirited Mr I iowley working diligently as an associate sport editor. ’24 indeed has played a most important part in rebuilding The Ram Those who acted as assistant managers of the Athletic Association this year were the hard working Jim Kidder, who was awarded the football managership in his Senior Year. Frank Cronin who so splendidly and courageously led as manager the Varsity Basketball team of 1924; Charles O’Neil who is still busy with the Varsity Baseball squad of 1924; '1'homas Maloney, now Manager of Varsity Track, and last but. of course, not least. Mr John Jerome Rooney III. Manager of 1924 Varsity Tennis Father Deane, the new Faculty Director of Athletics surely picked wisely when he chose the aforementioned hard working and capable ones as those w ho later would be the recipients of Varsity letters. In this field of endeavor we also saw Messrs. Noble and Masterson acting as Varsity cheerleaders A man’s-size job If any two men ever deserved Varsity letters, these two "sacrificial lambs’ who in their own way so greatly aided athletics deserved their awards. George Brooks was selected Secretary of the Harvester Club. Mark Crowley, Secretary of the Sr Vincent dc Paul Society, and Tom Maloney. Treasurer of the same organization this year. 24 was even represented in charitable organizations. All of which brings us again to the Sacred Portals of Music. As always. 1924 is well represented' Hiding behind the organ we could have seen Mr. Freeman Fickle Mr. Kidder had forsaken dramatics to woo another muse with the mellow chords of a Steinway; and the Brooklyn Contingent Messrs Fallon.

Jack Garrity. now the Captain of Varsity baseball, first donned the uniform of Fordham that year, while Leo O'Brien pitched and won several splendid games. Jack Cronin, now Captain of Varsity Tennis, first took to our splendid tennis courts when the spring of Sophomore Year finally arrived. He was aided and abetted on the courts by a host of members of the Class of 24. Of all these, however. Rooney. Cunningham and Conley, showed to best advantage Thus closed a year in many ways a memorable one We had finished two years of college life and looked forw ard expectantly to w hat the future might hold— philosophy for one thing and the much-desired distinction of Upperclassmen.

We abandoned the studies and hours of prep school When we came back in September a new regime, a method of procedure opened before us. No longer were we to be handed out a definite number of lines of I .at in and Greek to prepare. Cicero and Demosthenes had had their sav The day of Plato and Aristotle had come. Daily recitations held no terror for us. since the lecture system giving the student the option of taking or not taking notes was installed, and instead of staggering up the path with an armful of books as of yore, it was our right, our joy. to carry the wisdom of the ages in one red-bound volume. Junior is always the "big year" for the collegian, and with us it was not different than with others. Before the leaves had fallen before the brisk days of autumn had really arrived, we were introduced to a new mental stimulant—philosophy. Through the intricacies of minor logic and the mazes of criteriology we stumbled until the path to know ledge was finally' found. We had left the classics far behind and had entered the Promised Land of Abstract Ideas a country filled with many unsuspected dangers and some undeserved rewards Father Cox. Mahoney and Barrett were our guides, and under their tutelage the year passed right merrily. Philosophical battles were of almost daily occurence. That our little group of serious thinkers should contain such a collection of sceptics, heretics and perhaps worse, was a shock to the ordered orthodoxy of the thoughtless. The fateful month of February, with its examinations and the consequent carnage, was survived and no casualties reported. The second charge starting in the bleak days of winter and ending in the bright sunshine of June, was begun But. unlike the man possessed of devils, the last part of the year was even better than the first Kantian categories and syllogistic laws were no longer veiled mysteries and the light of reason "clearer then the noonday sun" not only filled, but flooded ninety-two minds stored with the lore of Clark and Mercier. Right from the time we were little bits of Freshmen we had heard about the Junior Prom. It was something for which preparations began in September and ended in February It meant looking up all sorts of unthought-of things. like favors and orchestras, and the speedy spending on the credit system of uncollected money. Like many another class we had resolved upon a higger and better Prom. In the early fall, the committee—Ray Conron, Jim Kidder. Dick O'Brien. Joe One I kindred Tiventy-mneO’Keefe, with Hick Conley as chairman—was elected. Immediately, meetings were held, suggestions Jiscussed and plans made to maintain and increase the glory of the college by an event worthy of the name of Fordham. And w hen the night did arrive, every one in the class ' stepped out. some further than the others. The spirit of Fordham. not running wild but in a state of thorough enjoyment, pervaded the nineteenth floor of the Biltmore Well satisfied with our social success we turned to the more intimate but infinitely more important matter of personal adornment Whether the rings should be plain or ornate, the stones blood-red or not so red. took many a strong class meeting to decide until the final decision was cast for model i A. K. We will not soon forget the memorable production of "Henry VIII nor 24's brilliant contribution to Fordham dramatics,—Richard B O Bricn s unforgettable portrayal of Cardinal Wolsey and John Master son s impersonation of the King. I he class had alw ays been noted for its wealth of histrionic ability, but Dick's viv id portrait of the famous cardinal brought new glory to Fordham. to the class, and particularly to himself. No words however wild and weird, of the historian, can do justice to the class games. They rose above science and skill, trampled upon technique and resulted in a good time for all concerned. They brought hidden talents hidden uniforms and hidden implements forth from nothing. The scores, either luckily lost or grossly mislaid, are not at hand, but the results can have been nothing but victories; failures being not only repellant but against our traditions. This is also the year which exposed Jack Garrity and Vincent Cavanagh as star athletes, leaving them Captains of Varsity Baseball and Basketball, respectively Then there were those balmy afternoons when someone with a pistol and another with a tape started races and measured leaps. Here our trackmen, mile-a-minute Swanstrom, winged-foot Wefing and Jumping Jones went out and did their stunts in such a way as to bring credit to themselves and honor (gratefully received) to the class. Despite the alliterative relation, June did not make us Juniors, rather it promoted us to the dignity of Seniors I he days of being lowerclassmen were gone, our class president was President of the A A., and we were to start the new term as members of the graduating class with the privilege of cap and gown. We look back upon this year (some of us) with feelings of joy and relief. The many good things, unexpected free periods, the various class activ ities, all served to make it pleasant and no longer were we to be faced with the amacing apparati of physics and chemistry labs. Something different was to be started and a new combination of professors to be conquered The year is over. It belongs to the glorious past w hich is the prophecy of the future. A pleasant memory and no regrets nor repinings, is cur inheritance. A great vear An experience to be enjoyed but not repeated. One Hundred 7 htrtx-oneSenior CLASS OF FICERS illiam R. Meagher .

President ice-Prestdenl Secretary Treasurer Historian THERE is one thing about the Class of 19:4 that is really remarkable.and that consists in its originality. If it is not the first class to start something, it is the first on which something is started. W e cite an instance of this to prove our point It has been the custom from time immemorial to pay a just and fitting tribute to the omniscient dignity of Seniors by giving them an extra week of vacation before classes were formally resumed. But did that happen this year? As Frank Downey would say: "No. a thousand times no " We. who arc without doubt the most extraordinary Senior Class in the whole history of the school, found ourselves compelled to return on the same day. at the same hour, as the hoi polloi But with the resignation and forbearance for which we are noted, we uttered no cry of protest but settled down immediately to diligent study Father J. Murphy. S.J was Professor of Psychology and Evidences, and Father T. Barrett. S.J . was Professor of Ethics. But was this all ? No! A kind and considerate Faculty awarded us the privilege of ■"electing’' our minor studies: of which we shall discourse later. First and foremost in the considerations of the year was the election of class officers. No higher tribute of esteem and gratitude to the men who governed us in Junior could be shown then to elect them to succeed themselves. Which, accordingly. was done, so that William R. Meagher was again president; Cavanagh. vice-president; Sexton, secretary: and Brooks retained his hold on the money-bag. With the efficiency we have learned to respect, this able executive body immediately set about the enormous tasks that confront the staid and responsible Seniors, with the result that the Maroon staff and the Dance Committee were speedily appointed. After that, nothing was left but for the unlucky appointees to do as they were told, to the best of their ability It was about this time in the sequence of events that the thoroughly alarming and horror-breeding rumor that there would be no class dances began to raise its Hydra-head in the marshes of our sweet content With the traditional optimism that enables us to emerge smiling from our philosophy examinations, we simply-refused to give this fishwives tale even the minimum of credence. As things turned out. for once we were right. We did have a Senior Dance, and it was one of the most successful affairs of its kind ever held at Fordhom. What though it rained One Hundred Thirty-threesheets, torrents and bucketsful . . . taxis are cheap! If you do not believe that —why. recollect the small fleet of those vehicles that spec! gaily up the elm-lined path about 8.50 every morning. Then . . the Retreat' So inspiring was this little religious exercise that two reverend Seniors begged to be permitted to make another one at Mt Manrcsa, Staten Island. Anyone who doubts this may go to that hallowed spot and drink a holy inspiration from the photographed faces of Masterson and Finnigan, all a-shine with conscious virtue They enjoyed the Retreat, and only for lasterson's snoring during the sermons the other Retreatants would have enjoyed it also. It was next ordained by the powers-that be. that the Varsity Play be given to an expectant and clamoring public The play this year consigned to the tender mercies of the Mimes and Mummers was R. B. Sheridan s "The Rivals." Richard O'Brien again appeared in skirts: not the tragedy-fraught scarlet of a cardinal but this time in the dainty pcachbloom flounces of Mrs. Malaprop. Carroll scored the hit of his very successful histrionic career, as Sir Anthony Absolute, and Masterson and Finnigan won new laurels as Bob Acres and Captain Absolute, respectively. In fact, the play was acclaimed to be one of the most artistic productions in college dramatics. Personally, we believe a great deal of the flattering comment was elicited from people who were dazzled by the exceedingly "high-hat" costumes affected by the gentlemanly ushers w ho were, of course. Seniors. About this time in the chronological order, the Christmas Holidays came around to give us lime to recuperate from the first examination in psychology. A disinterested bystander, casting even a casual eye over the mental wrecks that staggered our of the well-known classroom on that fateful day (thank Heaven, it was not a fatal day!), would not have wagered a well-worn dime on the chances of half of us to survive. Then, simultaneously with the preparations for the Prom, along came the brat. Oh. most decidedly, along came the Frat Many boulder-size pebbles have stirred the placid depths of our scholastic existence during these swiftly-passing years; but for a catastrophic, cataclysmic upheaval, nothing has ever come within hailing distance of the Frat For a few days, verbal missiles enough to stock the arsenal of an Irish Parliament for years to come were actually insufficient for the demand.

Really the place was so crowded that even the buxom Joe Kelly found it hard to waft himself-and-escort through the mob. The word "waft" reminds the scholarly scribe that lie forgot to mention the still-unblemished record of the Football Team. Under the scientific tutelage of "Knute Rockne" Garnty. this amiable organization managed to waft its dainty way through the Junior line times enough to settle the laurel wreath firmly on their One I kindred Thirty-five classic brows. Ii was a very gentle and ladylike game. In fact, hardly anyone was killed We have now come ro that impasse subsequent to any magazine's rushing off to press right in the middle of things, as it were There arc so many things that will be done, about which we have no doubt as to their success, and yet we cannot venture to give any augur whatsoever, l or example, we are sure that the rapidly-approaching One-Act Play Contest will shed new luster on the fame of our already-far-hcraldcd Thespians. Then of course, there is the Interclass Baseball series w hich 24 won last year and w hich, if our past successes in all branches of athletics are any criterion, w ill again see our noble athletes victorious. Last, but not by any means least, there is Commencement Week All the signs presage a very original and entertaining number of features. But of all these things we can say nothing except that they w ill take place, and that their success w ill redound to the everlasting glory of the Class of 1924. When these lines shall be still young we. whose history they endeavor to portray. shall have passed from the realm of the present into the kingdom of things past. To those who follow we leave a heritage of deeds accomplished, of glory gained, but most of all . . . of love for Fordham. W e are sure that they w ill take up the torch we so reluctantly relinquish, because to love Alma Mater is to strive mightily and well for her honor. One Hundred Thirty-sixJUNIOR » jy • I.

Today, the symbol " 25' means something more than a Sophomore Greek mark. It stands for a bright record of achievement, for unswerving loyalty to Fordham and her traditions But we get ahead of our story. Neither Rome nor ’25 was built in a day, but rather did they rise with the cycle of years The object of this humble attempt is epic, not lyric; hence, we must follow the fortunes of the class through the vagaries of Freshman and Sophomore to Junior, and not sing only of our present slate. Three years ago. on one smiling September morning, a host of shining faces and twice as many trepidating feet were winding up the elm-lined pa—but that one “—word is too often profaned for me to profane it"— hence, to avoid the bromide, wc shall lay the first scene of our account in the Auditorium It was here that the Class of '25 first assembled as a body, to be divided into three sections—A. 13. and C. The first day in every school, it seems. One Hundred 7 hirty-nineconsists mainly in meeting the Profs. We were not disappointed. Father Gaynor, S.J., Father Fremgen. SJ.. and Mr. Gannon. S.J., were on hand, and assumed the initiation of the respective sections into collegiate ways of learning Having been thus favored by fortune at the very beginning of College life, could success be warded off by any means? It is granted, then; our "ship of state was most auspiciously launched but a helmsman and crew were lacking; and even at this early period of class life, a precocious genius arose from our midst with an astounding discovery. We must hold an election! And hold one we did. I lugh Holley was chosen president, Richard McAnany, vice-president Henry McCarthy. Secretary; and Warren Atkinson, treasurer Thus well manned, we were off Conflicts between us and our self-appointed immediate superiors, the Sophs, were unavoidable, and on many an occasion, "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" were thrown willy-nilly to the winds w hile the air resounded to the thud of earnestly-delivered blows and weird battlecries. A goodly proportion of the class expended its energy in roundly thumping Fordham's opponents on the gridiron. Others turned their attention to the more sedate objectives: debating society, the staffs of the Monthly and Ram. and the Harvester Club. Our debut into the social world was made on December seventeenth with a Freshman Smoker in Alumni Hall. How fast the days flew! Christmas came and was gone Then came the h te noire of every man's collegiate life—Mid-Year Exams. In our case, its bark was worse than its bite, for we were left practically unscathed to face the future. Then "Hence, loathed Melancholy!" was our refrain, and we became devotees of Terpsichore and Euterpe, skippingly endeavoring to assimilate as much of the three "R’s" as possible under the circumstances Our first hop was held at rhe Hotel Pennsylvania under the direction of Maurice O'Shea, and it was a credit to his hard labor and w ise management Basketball contributed its bit towards rippling the smooth-flowing passage of the year until the warm breath of spring permitted baseball and tennis. Some of us went in strong for sports; others preferred to simulate Omar Khayyam, and full many a lasting friendship was begun in the soporific shade of the campus elms. Spring soon slipped off into summer and we to the strenuous duties of vacationing. Freshman Year w'as now but a memory; a pleasant dream to conjure up in the balmy air of mountain and seashore Vacation's rigors took no toll from the class, and September. 1922. saw us again invade the campus Gone were the pounding heartbeats and the irepidating feet thar marked our entrance to Fordham the year before Gone was initial shyness and verdancy. We were the veterans of a year’s campaign, and ours was now the whip of the oppressor; ‘20, the victim of its sting Dainty little caps were given out, fatherly rules proscribed, and a mcrr time we had w ith both But Sophomore life was indeed more than one grand battle with the Freshmen; there were other things to think of; among them, elections. Vincent McPeak was chosen president; John McAniff. vice-president; Leon Scully, secretary; and Henry McCarthy, treasurer Football- Varsitv and Intcrclass- held our attention almost One Hundred Fortyexclusively for a while. To the Varsity eleven we contributed Gerald Fitzgerald and Thomas Malone; our chef d'oevre in the Intramural series was the b-c defeat we administered to the Freshmen. In the meantime a dance and reception had been held at the Astor and a smoker in the Auditorium. The boxing matches between Freshman and Sophomore were engaged in at the latter festival, the Frosh pugilists carrying off the palm of victory by a slight margin. Mid-Years approached, slowly at first, then by leaps and bounds. Scarcely a flurry did they cause in our ranks, though, when they finally arrived—we were acclimated at last and. it seems, attuned to Fordham life. From then on existence was one sweet song for us. The Varsity Basketball Team was composed mostly of Sophomores, when Ralph Landry. Harold I.eddy, John McMahon, and Ralph O’Connell took the floor together. Francis A. Walsh, James J. Sheridan, and Edmund C. Burke were pouring out their souls in verse and stories for the edification and amusement of .Monthly readers, while the productions of the Mimes and Mummers were enhanced by the characteristic acting of Godfrey Schmidt. Edward Lyman. John Hargrove. Walter Slattery, and William O’Connor Absorbed as we were in the pursuance of our several duties and hobbies, the days seemed to fly w'ith lightning-like rapidity. Came May and then June Tcnniscourts occupied throughout the day: lithe-limbed athletes burning up the cinder path; roar alter roar of encouragement to our baseball nine thundering from the stands. And before the echoes of the last deafening cheer had rumbled into oblivion, the campus was again deserted by us for other, though hardly sweeter pastures. Of necessity, our remarks must be confined to scholastic, at least collegiate, activities. Were we permitted to ramble, however, among the sinuous passages of extra-curriculum—vacation—activity, many a thrilling tale could be told, many a strange clime and foreign strand introduced. That pleasure is denied us; but can we be entirely condemned for recalling to mind the chubby figure of Richard McAnany, busily and pcrspiringl engaged in bathing fragile chinawarc on the R.M.S Volendam. four days out of New York and hound Fast? One is led into strange situations now and then; indeed, if variety truly be the spice of life, then assuredly our class is leading a peppery existence if the diversity of our vacations is taken as a criterion of our lives on the whole. There is a huge difference between One I kindred korty-onesailing the high seas, camping in the Maine woods, and pushing a lawnmower on an Illinois golf course. Ripened slightly by experience, we agree, perforce, with Byron in saying: "There's not a joy the world can give like that it takes away." It was hard, in a measure, to drag ourselves back to Rose Hill last fall. The rem-inisccntial pleasures of summer seemed magnified and multiplied when they were gone, and existed solely as scenes in the great panorama of memory. It is the same now' as then Our Junior Year (the brightest in College life) is nearly over; its joys and little triumphs loom poignantly unforgetable in retrospect. Shall we be laughed at as prematurely doddering if "We turn to catch one fading ray Of joy that’s left behind us 1 f cforc many days had gone by. we had re-elected Gerald Fitzgerald to the class presidency; Thomas Malone wc chose as vice-president; Francis Walsh as secretary; and I lenry McCarthy once more as treasurer. In the attendant roar of the football season, the names of Fitzgerald, Malone, Brennan, Howlcy. Dunn, and Bill stood out prominently. It is not our duty to enumerate the victories and defeats of the Football Team, but rather to point out the preponderance of Junior men on the squad. The Football Season, however interesting it may have been, was soon over and we faced the looming wall of work yet to be done. Junior Year in College has gradually evolved into the most important of the four, it seems. There is the Prom to be held, rings to he chosen, and men to be elected for the following year to positions incumbent on Seniors Wc commenced by electing Henry McCarthy, (Chairman of the Prom Committee: and John McAmff, head of the Ring Committee. Immediately upon being elected. Mr. McCarthy, aided by the class officers, chose his fellow workers form '25 in general and the wheels were put in motion to grind out as fine a Prom as possible. The mills of the gods grind— "exceedingly fine, they say. but certainly no finer than did the wheels of our committee, (if the kind reader will pardon or ignore the equivocation). Picture the Crystal Room of the Biltmore on February eighth. Nineteen Flundred Twenty-four, lights brilliantly ablaze, seductive melodies from the instruments of the recog-nizcdly world’s greatest dance musicians; a bewildering galaxy of color; and you realize how fine our wheels ground. But now the Prom is past and Junior Year almost over. The Class of '25 has given of its best to every function (scholastic, social, or athletic) with which it has been associated. Whether that unit has been sufficient or not. we arc in no position to judge. We leave that and this humble account in the hands of our contemporaries. One Hundred h'orlv-tuoSOPHOMOREHistory of the Class of 1926 James P McGeough CLASS OFFICERS President Robert N. Rose . ice-P resident Robert I. Flynn Secretary John E. Quinn . Treasurer Roland W. Miller . Historian EARLY rn the Fall of iq22. an unwieldy horde of some two hundred and eightv-seven students stormed the portals of Rose Hill to begin the four-year battle for a sheepskin. W e offer no apologies for our greenness; it is proverbial for Freshmen to be green, and we violated no tradition, from the bashful stumbling of awkward feet to the little green buttons on top of our caps—tokens of rivalry from the Class of '25. Within a short time, we had chosen officers Jim McGeough, president; George Hammer, vice-president; Joe Ferrone, secretary; Jack Quinn, treasurer. Their subsequent re-election confirmed the wisdom of our choice and. if we had known these men for years instead of hours, wc boast that wc could not have made a more satisfactory selection. One Hundred Forly-fiveOur president immediately went forth to win his laurels on the gridiron and was a prominent figure in the Maroon backfield, being rewarded with a letter. Bruton. Obester. and Rose were also retained on the Varsity Squad. The remainder ot the Frosh players set about to form a nucleus for future Fordham teams, and these young warriors traveled far and wide in search of victory, competing against other Freshman elevens. Captain Griffin, Hassinger, and Marcottc starred for the outfit. Later. Jack Frost decreed that future Freshman triumphs should be indoors, and the Basketball Season was greeted by one of the fastest Frosh quintets in the city and in the history of Fordham. The young tossers achieved an enviable record, and ar the end of the schedule, ten were found to have merited their class numerals. To mention those who distinguished themselves on the court at one time or another would be to call a roll of the squad, but we venture to say that Rohan Grainger, Captain McMahon, and Irish were the luminaries of the aggregation. Later, in the course of sporting events, the Indoor Track called all Fordham attention, and ar the famous Diamond Meet, the Frosh conquered the University in the Interclass Relay. Good old fighting names had the victors—McGeough, Hammer, Harrington, and Ahern, the last of whom has played on all four Freshman teams. 1 lammer and lcGeough ran also for the Varsity, and our class officers each won his "F" for track, and we are mighty proud of our speedy Letter-Carriers. Our successes, however, were not all athletic; in the social sphere also, our enviable record was upheld. The annual Frosh Reception was given at Sherry’s on the twenty-sixth of January, excellently arranged by the committee: Bcrgin. I lammer. Liegev, and Murray. When Bob Fallon s Orchestra played the curfew, all too soon, the Frosh had become better known to themselves, to Fordham and. happily, to others. As has been mentioned, the Class of 25 imposed a set of rules on each turbulent spirit and a little black cap on each Freshman head. It was at this point, shortly after the Christmas Holidays, that the Sophomores revoked the sentence which they had passed upon us. There was no urge for the commutation; it was done through an evident good w ill, and we appreciated their sportsmanship. We were One I lundred Forty-sixmoreover, greatly indebted to them for the needed example they had set for us. the emulation ol which has brought forth our best efforts. W hen rehearsals began for the Varsity Play, the Class of "26 again displayed its loyalty and spirit; no less than sixteen members donned the mask and buskin in a great Thespian achievement. Bob Peters became a charming young lady to fill the leading feminine role and all co-operated in furnishing the satisfied audiences with an entertainment which added another leaf to Freshman s laurel wreath of glory. With the coming of spring, we ventured forth like Alexander of old in search of more athletic worlds to conquer. Tennis first called the attention of its enthusiasts. and mans enterprising brush raised a racket for the glory of their class. Chet Carroll, Captain Charlie Murray. Calx- Obester. and Bob Rose were the youths who decided the cases on the courts in the Freshmen's favor. At the invitation to "play ball, the Frosh sallied to fields afar, bearing as their standard the trusty bludgeon and misfit glove, and completed a most glorious season. Captain Rohan. Irish. Sheerin. and the ever-present Ahern were the bright planets in our baseball firmament. The class that passed beneath the historic gate in September of 192} bore only a slight resemblance to the eager group w hich, a year ago. had faltered in as Freshmen. As Horace would have it. "It was another and still the same Features alone had not changed; knowledge had increased; spirit had been transfigured from Freshman curiosity to Sophomore loyalty and a profound love for Fordham Numbers, too. had been altered some had hearkened to the lure of business; many had been weeded by the final examinations. One had died: Charles A. Dougherty (an excellent student a royal good fellow) answered the last roll-call and went to the Great Examination. Those w ho knew and understood him realize that he went prepared, and the Just Master has rated him well. Reqmescat in pace' We soon elected officers, the task being easier now because of a better understanding. born of a year’s association with them. Jim McGcough was rc-cicctcd unanimously to fill his third term as president and lack Quinn always far ahead 11024- One Hundred Forty-seven of the collection basket, was picked to guard the purse without a dissenting voice. Bob Rose was chosen for the vice-presidency; and Jack McDermott, later giving way to Bob Flynn, was selected to transcribe our efforts. We w ish at this point to defend our vote; these men were nominated and elected because of pure merit and not through affiliation with any organization Once again. McGeough distinguished himself on the gridiron as the mainstay of the Varsity backfield N larcotte. Obester Rose and Bruton acquitted themselves creditably in the order named. The Sophomore team playing its greatest game (against the Frosh), came in second in a close contest. A single touchdown scored in the final minute of play by an eager Freshmans intercepting a forward pass at the threshold of the Soph goal, gave his classmates a victory of 0 to o. At the annual I rack Meet (one of the greatest athletic and financial successes in the history of Fordham), McGeough and 1 Jammer ably represented the Varsity; and Daley. Liegey. and Hammer won second place for us in the Interclass Relay. Hammer s running, in particular, was superb. His red hair was a danger signal to his opponents and helped the eye to follow him in his mad sprint over the boards Some mark was indeed necessary to trace his speedy, graceful flight, and we prophesy that his fleeting footprints will vet leave a lasting impression on the sands of sport. Now. with the advent of basketball, the ('lass of ib has ottered a promising galaxy of players to the Varsity. Grainger. Rohan. Hartnett, and McMahon have been retained on the squad and each scintillating in turn has borne testimony that there can be no field closed to our athletes. So it has been in every line of endeavor—all social and student activities have found in us support and good w ill. The Harvester Club counts many Sophomores among the leaders of its worthy work; the Ram depends for much of its news upon the four Sophs on the staff: a few names have adorned the pages of the Fordham Monthly; we arc represented on the newly-organized Press Clubby two of the four members; the concert-master of the rev ived orchestra is a Sophomore; the officers of the Glee Club are all men of :b; the Debating Society numbers second-year men among its valued speakers; the Sodality has also found us faithful to our religion. From the altar ro the sport, from the song to the speech, and down the long trail of College activity, on every branching path we find at least one who is upholding the glory of God, the traditions of Alma Mater, the honor of our class Men so loyal to their God. so faithful to Fordham. will ol necessity be true to themselves and the name and the cherished ideals of old Fordham will be indelibly graven on every heart 1 One Hundred Forty-eightM )■History of the Class of 1927 CLASS OFFICERS Everett McCooey Joseph Sherlock William Moriarty Francis Fullam President Secretary Treasurer Historian ON THE seventeenth of September, Nineteen Hundred and Twenty-three, Fordham I Jniversicy received to her bosom with a marked tenderness, the largest Freshman Class since the beginning of her hallowed existence. It was a beautiful, ideal Autumn day that marked the birth of the Class of Twenty-seven. yet it was not without a tinge of anxiety that the recruits marched slowly up the winding path of their chosen Alma Mater. We felt as strangers in a strange land, breaking forth into a new path of endeavor. We knew not whet her our reception would be cordial or otherwise. Our anxiety, however, proved ungrounded, for both the Faculty and Upperclassmen joined hands in extending a welcome which infused both enthusiasm and encouragement into the hearts which had been, at first, heavy with forebodings. There was a decided lack of confusion as the unwieldy horde was divided— those aspiring to science were assigned to the Pharmacy Building; and those for the arts course, to the majestic Faculty Building. In the matter of Professors, the 192.4- One Hundred hilly-onehand of destiny surely played its part. The storied "Sisters Three proved generous, indeed, as is evidenced hv the esteem in which our professors are held by each and every individual, nor only of the Freshman Class, but of the entire Student Body. Father Gaynor, S J , led us through the realms of Horace, infusing into our minds a comprehensive knowledge of the Latin tongue Under the guidance of Father F’reingen, S.J., we have delved into the literature of the deathless bards of Greece. It was X Ir. Bunn, S J., who undertook the task of teaching the yearlings an appreciation of English Literature, and his conscientious efforts have not been in vain, for we have come to realize the beauty and artistic quality of English literature as written by the old masters. Father Deane has spared no effort in giving us the essential history course which was not only instructive but highly interesting. Father Pine, S J., gave us our religion with an overwhelming onslaught of proofs, so that, while we never doubted the veracity of our Faith, we feel perfectly capable of defending it against the sternest aggressor. No course is complete without a scientific and efficient knowledge of mathematics; accordingly, Mr. Shields taught us trigonometry, and all its mysteries Mr Samra directed our forces against the Spanish, and under his generalship we overcame the stubborn matter, while Mr. Bacharach adroitly led us victoriously against the French. Soon after our entry we were presented with caps and a set of Freshman rules, compiled by Sophomores, to test in a concrete manner our staunchness and loyalty. They were, however, accompanied by a clause, w hich promised dispensation should we overcome the Sophs in three out of five contests, and while we lost the boxing tournament we were victorious on the track and gridiron. The Sophomores showed their sportsmanship and good w ill by relieving us of the yoke shortly before the Christmas vacation, for w hich the Freshman Class was sincerely grateful, and all the more determined to prove its worthiness. It might be well to state here that from the very outset there existed very friendly relations between the Freshman and Sophomore Classes. At a meeting of the entire Freshman Class the following were elected officers: Everett McCooey, president; Joseph Sherlock, secretary; and William Moriarty, treasurer The w isdom of our selection was soon apparent, and when in February, a meeting was held for another election, they were all re-elected. .... ..............._____________________________-................... One I kindred Fijty-livoF-Q? fcf? W hen the call of gridiron and track resounded the Class of Twenty-seven heeded at once and gained distinction on the Varsity squads. But the ambitious yearlings were not content to confine their efforts solely to Varsity squads. As this is a history, and the great laws and essential feature of history is truth we must confess that the Freshman Football Team did not startle the universe with a string ol victories However, the grit and grim determination displayed by the Freshman in the face of repeated defeats was worth more, in sterling value, than victors itself. For it must be remembered that while it takes a good man to gain victory, it takes a better one to placidly face defeat and rise repeatedly to try again; and surely in this respect the Class of 'Twenty-seven was not found wanting With the close of the Football Season the Freshmen devoted their efforts to Basketball, w ith further success, and we must state that athletics as conducted by the Freshmen can be branded w ithout fear of shame as worthy of Fordham w ith regard to fighting grit and true sportsmanship. Nor did the Freshmen confine their efforts entirely to athletics, for they soon widened their scope by entering into the social sphere. Accordingly, on the eleventh cf January a dance was arranged to be held at the Hotel Saxos The dance was a success from every angle and was strongly supported by the U pperclassmen, for which w e extend our hearty appreciation The dance was run in a manner creditable to the name of Fordham. It had many fine effects, for it not only gained the confidence of the Faculty but enabled the Freshmen to become better known among themselves and to others. The Junior Prom, and in fact, all other Fordham activities in the social line and elsewhere, have found no stauncher supporters than the Freshmen. For the good will, and wholeheartedness of the Class of Twenty-seven is everywhere apparent. Whenever there arc deeds to do that require effort and sacrifice there seems always enough Freshmen eager and willing to pur their shoulders to the wheel and assistin carrying the burden. In the Poster Contest for the Junior Prom, it was E. Vincent O'Brien who stepped into the breach and won the laurels for himself and the Class of Twenty-seven His artistic ability has gained renosvn throughout Fordham With the call for actors for the Varsity Play the Class of Twenty-seven not only showed its spirit and loyalty but also its versatility; for in both the cast and on the business end. the ambitious Freshmen were seen working with a vim and vigor which makes the outlook for the future of Fordham look bright and rosy In the comparatively small cast of The Riv als the Freshman Class was well represented. Joseph P. Brennan performed in the role of the leading lady, while Joseph T Fcchtclcr, Richard D. McGowan, and Francis A. Fullam displayed their skill to good advantage John F. Dcvany and John Keating represented the Freshmen on the business end and contributed to the success of the play as much as the actors by their unstinted efforts. That the Varsity Play was a success in every sense of the word cannot be denied. It was indeed, an artistic production and we must here state that its success was due largely to the conscientious effort of the Freshmen not only as individuals hut also as a class. The co-operation of the class itself One Hundred Fifty-threespeaks volumes and shows in concrete fashion not only its constructive and productive powers but also its brilliant possibilities for the future. The Fordham Orchestra has been substantially assisted by musical talent gleaned from the Freshman Class, for no less than ten Freshmen gained a position there, which is a remarkable feat Eugene Tarrant, Anthony Dupraz, Charles Tilley, Joseph Walsh, John Kiernan. James Breslin, Louis Russo. Nicholas Locoscio, Gerald McGarrahan. and Aloysius Robling have distinguished themselves in this branch of endeavor. It is not inopportune to mention here one who has proven a gem through his vocal abilities—Everett McCooey, our president. Everett is regarded as Fordham's "Song bird"; in fact, no affair is considered complete without a selection from him. I lis rich and mellow baritone voice possesses rare charm and delicacy. And now, with spring upon the horizon, the Freshman Class having proven its quality in the matter of studies in the grueling mid-term examinations, is aglow with expectation for the Baseball Season. At the time of this writing, recruits have not been called, yet judging from the enthusiasm and conversation among the students, the Class of Twenty-seven will be there with a punch to bring new glories to Fordham, and by their endeavors to place her upon a pedestal in the world of athletics. Every organization in the College numbers among its most valued members, individuals of the Freshman Class. This class not only as a body has shown its spirit and aptitude but even as individuals. The staff of The Ram has been favorably impressed with the taste of Freshmen talent. E. Vincent O'Brien has especially distinguished himself by gaining a position on The Ram staff as art editor. The Fordham Monthly also has received contributions that tend to make possible B future laurels in this branch of endeavor. Thus ends the chronicle of the main Freshmen Achievements, and we. the Freshmen, looked upon in a low ly light and perhaps by some despised, feel with a keen sense the responsibility that is ours. For upon our shoulders rest the future destinies of our beloved Fordham and, lest it be forgotten, without a Class of Twenty-seven there would be no graduates in the year Nineteen Hundred and Twenty-seven. The outlook is bright. There is not a branch of endeavor in which the Freshman Class has not creditably distinguished itself; distinguished itself in defeat as well as victory. Such characteristics in a class are of inestimable value, for with such qualities defeat is impossible; and with defeat impossible, success is inevitable. Thus in the first year of our existence we have unfurled our colors; we have nailed our flag to the mast, and there it w ill stay. Our Battle cry is "Success and Fordham."

'2b One Hundred Fifty-sixThe Fordham Monthly IT IS not the province of this writer to enlarge upon the varied triumphs that have, in years long gone, contributed to place the sanctity of haloed tradition upon The Fordham Monthly. Rather is it our task to sketch briefly those warriors of the pen who have further glorified its illustrious pages by the excellence of their work during the past generation If we digress a little, however to say a word or two about the history of the magazine, surely we shall be pardoned The progenitor of the present highly literary magazine made its formal bow in 1853. when the "Goose Quill appeared. Whether or not the flightiness that is the chief characteristic of the fow l from w hich the quill w as taken lent flavor to the publication, we cannot say. At any rate. 1! did not last long, but was quickly followed by; "The Sem,......fhe Collegian.' and "The Spy." The pinnacle of these artistic flights was reached when, in 18S2, the first copy of The Fordham Monthly was given to a world hushed in expectancy. For careful nurturing in its days of puny infancy the magazine ow cs its gratitude to three men: Francis Dwight Dowlcy, its first editor; Dr James N. Butler, now' a noted physician; and Dr James J Walsh, the brilliant writer and lecturer In accordance with the true Fordham spirit The Monthly has gained new respect among college circles w ith the passing of each succeeding year buch accomplished writers as T. A. Daly and Cyril B. Fgan made their literary debut in its pages, and twice w ithin the last four years it has been acclaimed the best college paper in the East. A distinction of this kind is. in our opinion, fruitful of far greater fame to Alma Mater than can be gained by any other of the intellectual activities for the simple reason that it is more far-reaching and more universally recognized If we have wandered too far from the path of duty, we apologize, pleading the fascination of the subject. It is left to us. then, to give their meed of praise to those loyal Fordhamitcs who have devoted their talents, energies, and spare time that The Monthly might nor perish but prosper; might not be "as good, but “better. ' This day of grace, then, finds Frederic Finnigan, ‘24. editor-in-chief, with Francis Walsh, assistant; and an associate staff comprising William Meagher. Richard O'Brien. Henry Wcfing, and F. Patrick Grady of 24; Edmund Burke, Pierre Marique. James Sheridan, and Thomas Reilly of 25 and James McCabe and Roland Miller of 2b. I lowever. as every editor knows to his sorrow, magazines are not made up solel of editors. One must consider those aspiring Miltons and Thackerays who have found time only for occasional flights into the realm of beauty. In '24 they number such monarchs of the pen as Brooks. Cunningham. Downey, Losinsky, I larrington. and that giant among giants, our lost and mourned friend, John Cassidy. To endeavor to expatiate upon each of these embryo writers and to give to each of them no more than his just due would be a task far beyond the powers of our inarticulate pen We can hope merely to give some slight indication of what has been done One Hundred Fifty-sevenIn iew of the fact that our space is limited and since this is properly a history of 24 s connection with The .Monthly, we can devote but very little space to the Seniors of tomorrow whose names shall be emblazoned in a Year Book of their own. We need not say that the members of the staff w ho are in the lower classes are talented and ambitious, for the honor of the position they hold connotes those qualities. Nor can we say of any one of them: "He is the best writer.’ Each of them has an individuality of his ow n that is different from that of his confreres, and so we can make no comparisons. (Mrs. Malaprop says: "Comparisons are odorous.”) Therefore we bend the knee of homage to these Homers of the future and pass swiftly on to our compatriots of 24. Away back in the dim and distant past, in other words in 24’s first week as Freshmen, the class was assigned a short story as the work to be done over Sunday. Mr. J. Kearney, S.J., who was our teacher as well as the Moderator of The Monthly, held as a goal before our eyes the promise of publication in the school paper for any story found worthy of the honor To our astonishment and his surprise, he found no less than three, by McCarthy. Brooks, and Finnigan who is now editor-in-chief. It is readily conceivable that from such a beginning great things might follow, and in March of that year, Finnigan was appointed to the staff. In considering the individual lights of the class, we must begin with seniority, since it would be impossible for any mere historian to follow a line of merit. Not only impossible but even dangerous! Therefore, since our editor was the first to receive recognition officially, let him he the first candidate to immortalization in these pages. As we have previously informed an eager or, let us hope, an interested audience. Frederic Finnigan was appointed to the staff in the middle of his Freshman year. Weird, sometimes gruesome, stories have been his forte, although he has delved into the sandpile of verse and brought up a grain or two. Perhaps to show that he could be erudite, too, he has also written essays that were quite favorably commented upon. The dignit of the position he holds as successor to the incomparable Panuch and the immortal Woods is more indicative of his talent than anything we might say. We pass swiftly on. The second member of this illustrious class to achieve distinction was the famous W. R. Meagher For two years, editor of the local news section, having been appointed in Freshman, he wrote with such a clarity and intensity of style that he was forbidden to do anything but write stories and essays. Being always an obedient youth, our own "Bill” did as he was told with w hat success everyone w ho reads The Monthly is familiar. I Iis clear, vivid style, so well exemplified in his siorv, "The Breaks, leads us to prophesy still further triumphs in the years to come We pass swiftly on. It was in Junior that the imposing and honor-compelling name of Richard Barry O’Brien was added to the list of associate editors. Were we to say that his story, "Rose of ladrid. ” was given the prize as the best of the year; were we to call attention to his scholarly essays and his tender poems; and all this in a manner One Hundred Fifty-eightwhich his work deserves, the reader would say: "Go to, thou braggart, with thy exaggerations." Not wishing this to happen, then, we shall merely call attention to his style; to its dignified, crystal flow . and to the adventurous romance of his stories. When Richard is famous, we shall be in the front rank of those who cry: "I told you so!' We pass sw iftly on. I he Poet Laureate of 24 w as next to see his name on the BoarJ of Lditors. Even in these days of his youth, the name of F Patrick Grady is one to conjure with and respect. To give the slightest iotan measure of appreciation to his poetry would require the gifted pen of another Grady, so we w ill confine ourselves to saying that when it comes to writing satirical, philosophical, witty, profound essays there is no one to compare w ith Grady. Paradoxical as the adjectives may seem, they are all eminently suited to the gentleman s style We pass swiftly on The last of 24 s valiant heroes to gain the distinction of an editorship was the calm and scholarly Henry Wefing. Such apparent opposites as are to be found in his erudite, literary essays, and the humorous ingenuity of the stories he writes, may give some vague idea of the versatility he possesses. His is the Open Sesame" to literature if he but wills to use it W e pass swiftly on The name that has appeared most often among the contributors from '24 is the awe-inspiring cognomen of Brooks. The jovial serenity of his style of short story has endeared him to all these whose support of this activity shows itself financially. To them. also, has appealed the poetry of Harrington and Losinsky. both of whom have plucked at least a leaf from the wreath of fame And even politics have been discussed in the rages of The Monthly, in learned articles by Brooks. Downey, and Cunningham. Does not all this versatility show a little of the talent that lies, not dormant but waiting, in the ranks of ’241 We have labored earnestly and diligently for Alma Mater's glory in the eyes of the world We have taken joy in the laboring If we have won, Deo gratias; if we have lost, 'on nostra culfyo One Hundred Tiflv-nineJames J.

Pres idem ice-Presiden Secretary Treasurer Stage Manager Electrician One Hundred SixtyDramatics The Mimes and Mummers FORDHAM S dramatic history is a long and glorious one. Extending over a period of seventy-one years and ranging all the way from Shakespeare toGeorge M. Cohan is a record that few colleges can boast. Comedy, tragedy, farce and burlesque all happily blended; indeed, it has embraced every phase of the drama Scanning the yellow leaves of the scraplxx k containing the playbills of all the productions on Fordham s historic boards we find therein chronicled presentations of Sheridan’s The Critic. Oliver Twist. "Damon and Pythias," "Rob Roy," "Richelieu." "Pirates of Penzance." and many others less well known. Shakespeare took the stage in 1874 with "Macbeth," and through the record we find his name often repeated. "Hamlet" and "Macbeth" were each presented three times; "The Merchant of Venice." twice; "King John," in 1882; "Julius Caesar, in 189b; "Henry IV in 1898; "Twelfth Night," in 1914; "Richard II. in i9ib;and "Henry VIII." in 192 . But Shakespeare alone has not held sway, for more recently there were productions of "Beau Brummel," "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," "If I Were King," "Seven Keys to Baldpate," and "She Stoops To Conquer. ' Our debut into Fordham's dramatic circle was marked by the advent of a new Moderator in the person of Mr Robert I. Gannon. S J.who announced the production early in the year of Rostand’s romantic play. "L'Aiglon." We cannot recall this presentation without a word of praise to those who have since left these portals and who contributed so substantially in making it the achievement that it was; in particular. Henry F. Lawrence. ‘22. in the title role. Philip Leddy, 21. and James C. Kelly, '22. In spite of the wealthof talent in the Upperclasscs, Freshmen were ably represented in the cast, for the playbill tells how Jack Masierson. Jim Carroll, and F'rcd Finnigan carried the Freshman banner in that memorable production. When we returned as Sopliomores, most of the veteran actors had left for other scenes, and from that day to this, the Class of 1924 has played an important part in Fordham’s dramatics. The play selected that year was Goldsmith's She Stoops To Conquer." and it was this production, presented under the title of "Mistakes of a Night, that brought to light the inimitable comedy ability of Jack Masterson 24. who scored a decided hit as Tony Lumpkin Indeed one reviewer has said of his performance that it was the "best piece of comedy work seen on the Fordham stage within the memory of the present generation Another outstanding performance in this play was the splendid characterization of James J. Carroll. '24. in the role of the fussy old Squire Hardcastle Michael Isaacs, ’22. contributed a delightful portrait of Mrs Hardcastle. and Frederic T Finnigan. 24. played Young Marlowe with his accustomed grace and ease. The Play shop, an organization founded by Mr. Gannon for the development of embryo playwrights, made its bow that season with five one-act plays, written, acted and directed by students. The prize-winning play." Heat.” a little gem by James Concagh, '25. was subsequently presented at Keith's Fordham I heatre, with John F. Masterson. '24. James Carroll 24. Richard B. O'Brien, '24. and Frederic T. Finnigan. ’24. in the cast The success with which these plays met, stimulated an interest in the art of playwriting that brought to light some really excellent products from the hands of student authors. When, the next year, Mr. Gannon announced a production of Shakespeare's "Henry VIII." it created something of a sensation. John Barrymore w as scoring his One Hundred Sixty-oneJohn F. M vsm.rson, ';j as Henry VIII arid Robert G. Peters, ‘16. as Anne Boleyn in Shakespeare's historical drarra. Richard B. O'Brien. :4. os Cardinal Wolsey and Louis Nolfo, j . as Cromwell in last year's production of Henry V!IIdecided success as Hamlet; David Warfield was holding forth as Shylock in “The Merchant of Venice;" and Jane Cowl was enchanting thousands as Juliet. It seemed, therefore, rather bold to invite comparison with such experienced stars. However, of all those who saw the Ford ham production there was only praise of the highest order. Richard B. O'Brien gave a magnificent protrayalof the famous Cardinal Wolsey. To quote the reviewer. "When we looked upon the stage, we did not see Mr. O’Brien; we saw only Cardinal Wolsey; Mr. O’Brien did not speak to us; the Cardinal took us by the hand and led us with him through his whole dynamic career . . We saw with him the light and justice of Cod; we Hung away, at his pleading, all the vain draughts and the hopes of ambitions: with him we fell weeping on the shoulder of Cromwell, crying out "Had I but served my God"! Rare indeed is the college drama that can boast of and flaunt before the eyes of the severest critic such a portrayal as Mr. Richard B. O’Brien's Cardinal W'olscv." John F Mastcrson, ‘2.), played the role ol Henry III with conviction and sympathy. The swaggering, bullying, pleasure-seeking king was brought to life once more by this versatile actor "In the difficult role of Queen Catherine," to again quote the reviewer, "Mr. Mark Crowley offered an interpretation that was one of the outstanding features of the entire production ” Overcoming the handicap of playing a feminine part, lie gave a performance that w as no less sympathetic than true: and the acclamation he received was the appreciation of an audience genuinely moved by the performance of a real actor. Others w ho gave an excellent account of themselves were Louis Nolfo. P.M., '24. as Cromwell; Sylvester J. Kiddy '23 as the Duke of Norfolk: Charles Murphy. 26, Joseph Fcrrone. zb, Robert N. Peters. 26, and Edward B Lyman, ’25. Careful attention was given to make the production historically perfect, and the impressive investiture was artistically designeJ by Mr. Gannon, who surpassed himself on this occasion. Great credit is due to William Dean. 23, and Paul Tivnan, 25, stage manager and electrician, respectively. Another high-water mark in this season’s dramatic achievement was the production of Beula Marie Dix's one-act play. Allison's Lad." The title role as interpreted by James J Carroll. ’24. was really excellent 11 was a performance that for understanding and realism has scarcely been surpassed on a Fordham stage in recent years. Frederic T. Finnigan. '24. played Col. Strickland with sincerity and feeling; Godfrey P Schmidt was a convincing George Boyer; while James P. McGcough, '2b, was a robustious and competent Col. Drummond. Robert N. Rose, '26, and J. Edmund Grainger. 20. rounded out an excellent cast. The substantial and picturesque set and the splendid lighting effects were features of this production; a monument to the genius and thoroughness of Mr. Robert I. Gannon The Playshop offered five more one-act plays for public presentation that equaled if not excelled the initial presentation of the preceding year. Particularly fine were "The Amaranthine Weed” by Godfrey P. Schmidt, and "Coffee for Two’’ by James H McCabe, '25. The production of "The Rivals" this year came as a delightful treat after the grim tragedy of "I Ienry VIII ’’ The greatest difficulty that Mr. Edward Bunn. S.J., the new moderator, experienced, was the selection of a play that would give the many experienced actors an opportunity, and once "The Rivals" was decided upon, his biggest problem was the casting of the play from the wealth of material on hand. Suffice it is to say that the selection of the play was a happy one and the cast as nearly approximated "all-star" as has been seen at Fordham in many years. One I kindred Sixty-threeSCENE FROM The Rivals Left to Right: Joseph Brennan, ' 27, as Lydia. Ric hard B. O'Brien. 24. as Mrs. Malaprop Frederic T Finnican as Cap:. Absolute James J.

Richard B. O’Brien. 24. played the exceedingly difficult role of Mrs. Malaprop with a delicacy of touch and ingenuousness of manner that was delightfully refreshing. He made the most of "the parts of speech and showed his versatility by playing this highly-amusing character with real distinction. John F.

I le has a true sense of comedy and his whimsicality, drollery and broad humor brought down the house at each successive performance Frederic T. Finnigan 24. as Captain Absolute, was the ideal of courtly elegance and grace, and we surmise his ardent wooing caused more than one flutter among the feminine hearts. The Lydia of Joseph Brennan '27, was a picture to behold, but a husky voice somewhat shattered the illusion Joseph Ferrone. 26. was an ardent and worried Falkland.

'26, made the most of the servant. The artistic and colorful arrangement of drapes and the new system of floodlights installed in place of the old-fashioned footlights added a professional touch to the production, while the paintings in oil that adorned the stage were most effective. Those mainly responsible for this scenic perfection were Mr. Edward Bunn. S.J., Paul Tivnan, '25. and Miss Marie Manque, whose artistic brush was responsible for the portraits It was all-in-all a splendid and extremely popular revival The One-Act Play Contest brought to light some excellent material. Sufficient to say that the plays were of the same high order as in other years. All are deserving of a word of individual praise, but space will bur permit us to mention them in passing. "The Jest by Godfrey P. Schmidt, ’25. was the prize-winner; and the other offerings, all of which were of a very high order of merit, were "The Cobbler" by Pierre F.Marique, ’25, "The Other Road"b Frederic T. Finnigan, "Pardon Me!" by Francis A. Walsh. '25. "Boots" by James H McCabe. ‘25. and the "Date" by George Leonard, 25. 1 he acting honors were shared by James Carroll '24, Louis Nolfo, 2t , Mark T. Crowley. 24. John F. Masterson. '24. Frederic T. Finnigan. 24; Edward B. Lyman, 25; and Godfrey P. Schmidt. '25. Thus was reached another milestone in Fordham's dramatic history. When we of the Class of 24 have joined the phantom hosts that Rose Hill has seen come and go; when others wear the crown that once was ours; when passing years have left behind only the hallow ed skein of memory , then, may we take this volume from its resting place, shake off the dust, and take comfort in the thought that we had a share in the carving of her history. To Fordham’s actors of tomorrow' we throw the torch; be theirs to hold it high. 192.4 One Hundred Sixty-five Editor-in-Chie George A. Brooks, 24 Managing Editor Edward B.

The Junior Class took up the work, and with Mr. Quigley as moderator and Paul O'Keefe, iq. as editor-in-chief. The Ram commenced its career The paper carried on during 1917-1918. and during the S. A. I C. period at Fordham Pur when the S A. T C. was demobilized, evil days came upon The Ram Many of its editors failed to return to College, business depression limited advertising; and it was decided by the remaining staff not to resume publication 1 he decision was regretted by both students and editors, but there seemed no possible way of reviving the paper without inevitable financial loss To O'Keefe and the associate editors, the Student Body owes a deep sense of gratitude. They showed that such an enterprise, besides being eminently feasible, filled a real need, and had this not been made evident by them, these lines would never have been written. The first step in the rc-cstablishmcnt ot The Ram was taken when Jack Devlin, 23. and Charles Kcnna, 23. put their heads together to work out a possible scheme for its revival. Bob Mahoney. '25. came in on the ground floor a sporting editor; Devlin rounded out an editorial staff and Kcnna gathered together a business staff. Aided by Fathers Trcacy, S.J.. and Cox. S.J., as Faculty advisers. Jack Devlin launched the first issue in November 1921. It was an instantaneous success, and the future of The Ram was assured Jack Masterson. '.’4. was the first of iq. .j on the staff and one of its original members. His humorous articles have been a feature of the paper since its inception. Earlv in 1022, George I lowlcy. 24. George Nicmcyer. 24. and George A. Brooks. 24. were appointed to the staff as associate editors, ar.d their appointment was well justified. Nicmcyer ran the famous "College Quadrangle.' that exploited hidden phases of classroom dissertations, while Howlcy handled sports so cleverly that he succeeded Mahoney as sporting editor. George Brooks, in the Fall of 1022, due to Jack Devlin's illness, became his assistant, with the title of managing editor, and the following year succeeded him as editor-in-chief. “Bill" Fissel, '24, and Joe Val. 24. were appointed to the staff in iq:j: Joe Val to become subsequently news editor and Fissel. associate editor. Otto Frank w-as made associate editor in 192 3, the Iasi of '.’4 to join the staff Rut a paper is only as strong as its finances, and 24 has left nothing undone to assure a strong financial backing for the paper When Charles Kcnna resigned as business manager. Andrew J Kennedy. '24. stepped into his place and directed the business policy of The Ram during hisjunior year His business policy made the paper financially independent in 1922-1923. and the present business policy follows along similar lines. 1 lub" Kelly. '24. has been on the paper as circular ton manager from his Junior year. His assiduity in distribution has been no mean factor in the paper's success, and in addition he has builded well for his successors. When these lines shall have appeared in print the directive influence of '2 i on The Ram shall have ceased, bur the influence of their self-sacrifice and loyalty to one another and the school should not and cannot cease. Father Treaev. S.J . was transferred to the staff of America in the Fall of 1912; Mr J J McGrath, S.J , is Assistant Moderator of The Ram. while Father Cox is at present sole Moderator. In spite of vicissitudes and changing customs. The Ram has never forgotten its mission which is to muke known the greatness that is Fordham. and secure foi Alma Mater her rightful position among the leaders of the college world. f 1924 One I fund red Sixty-sevenCouncil of Debate OFFICERS Raymond F.

Fordham journeyed to Worcester and convinced a hostile audience that “the principle ol the open shop is |«»i tin best interests of the American people Victory in this debate was due in no small measure to the efforts of the Freshman representatives—Francis X Downey and William K Meagher While the exponents of forensic discussions were winning glors upon the platform, the other members of the society were n« t inactive 'I1k- most capable were organized into lecture groups and delivered interesting and educational dissertations before the councils of the Knights of Columbus and the various parishes throughout the cite The audiences before whom they appeared were deeply impressed by the clear and logical exposition of the world s most pressing problem- No end of praise should be conferred on Mr Paul McNally S J . who conceived and brought to a realization this constructive means of benefit to the Catholic audiences and Iruitful source of training to the members of the teams.

Yet the pulm of victory, contrary to the expectations of the audience, went to Boston, and the Maroon suffered its first setback in two years A similar event occurred a few months later, when the Junior Varsity was beaten by the University of Pennsylvania on the question of the adoption ol the City Manager Plan Francis X.

Upon the same question, on the same night, a Fordham ream was victorious in Philadelphia. defeating the debaters Irom St Josephs College of that City. I hus far in the present year the council has undertaken to debate St Joseph's College and Boston. In the discussion with St Joseph’s, the question of the political disruption of the German Empire was debated and the palm of victory went to Fordham As we go to press, preparations have been made for the debate with Boston College, and the expediency of adopting a Selective Immigration Bill will be discussed. The recipient of splendid traditions, the Senior Class has cherished and preserved these I he sincere efforts of those who enrolled as members have done much to maintain the high standard of proficiency. Represented by the most persuasive and eloquent orators that ever defended the Maroon, the Class of Nineteen I lundred and . wenty-fuur has kept alive the noble spirit of the past and feels justified in transmitting to its successors the lofty ideals and glowing principles ol the Fordham University Council of Debate.

Cardinal Hayes inaugurated the now flourishing Students' Mission League, to assist the Foreign Missions by making their activities known throughout the diocese. All the colleges of the Archdiocese were invited to take part in this work, and Fordham responded enthusiastically. The assigned work of the club is the visitation of eighteen schools of the diocese twice during the scholastic year togive thechildrcna brief informal talk on the missions, and thus interest them in this phase of the work of the Church. In this activity, many members of the Class of 10:4 have taken a prominent part among them Jack Masterson, Dick O Bricn. John Power. Fred Finnegan and George Brooks. The club has not. however, limited itself to the assigned work it has assisted the missions in a financial way through funds raised by smokers and receptions. The club has also taken part in the Chaldean Mission Relief and has assisted the Social Service Committees of several New York Hospitals. The society has been fortunate in its modera tors. Mr. Gannon. S J., was the first Moderator, and his energetic real gave the club .1 firm foormg in Fordham life.

Despite frequent injuries, however, the team never failed to give our hardest opponents a stiff fight anti the eleven was a credit to Fordham on the athletic field Frank Gargan 09, resumed his task as Coach of the Varsity after a fairly successful season in 1922. "Bunny Corcoran, former Fordham star end. was Gargan s assistant "Cliff" Steele, luminary on Maroon gridiron teams during the SATC. and 1920, and Joe Williams, former Lafayette lineman, assisted the Fordham mentor during the early part of the year The coaching staff, however, w-as unable to fill the gap left by the departure of Tom Moriurty, who had worked wonders with the line the year previous The first bad break of the year came w-hen our own Jack Garrity was injured in practice and kept out of the game for the rest of the season It seemed that Jack w-as all set for a wunderful year after his brilliant performances in 1922. Prospects looked brighter when the Varsity in its first contest of the year crushed Mt. St. Mary's under a score of 41 to o. before an enthusiastic gathering of 5000 people It was evident that Gargan had uncovered two brilliant performers m Earl Graham and Tom Lcarv.

The Maroon put up a great fight, bur it was here that the breaks of the game started Gargan's eleven on a string of defeats. Captain Lou Healey, Tommy Mvers.

I loly Cross was a Ix-avv favorite in its contest with the Varsity at the Stadium on the next Saturday, but Fordham put up a strong fight ur.d held the strong Purple eleven to a 28 to 7 score. Jerry Fitcgcrald scooped up a Holy Cross fumble late in the first half and scored the Maroon's only touchdown after a great run of seventy-five yards. "Zcv" Graham stood out brightly in Fordham's return to form against C.C.N Y the next week and was largely responsible for the Varsity's 30 to o victory over the Lavender. The speedy Maroon halfback not only'ran back the C C N Y punts and tore One Hundred Seventy-sevenaround their ends almost at will but kicked a 41 yard field-goal: the longest seen at Fordham Field in many years Rutgers, playing in its best form, easily won its game from tlx Varsity at Orange, N.

In this contest the Varsity held the Blue and Gray five times in the first half, four of which wcie inside the Fordham 10-yard line Georgetown earned its victory. The Blue and Gray outplayed Gargan's outfit, but when it came to gamcncss, the Maroon totally outclassed the Washington team Fordham had a great chance of winning the game late in the fourth period after Graham had hurled a 45-vard forward pass to Lou Healey. Georgetown intercepted another pass, but MeGeough grabbed up a fumble and raced 20 yards before he was forced out of bounds. Gruham then tossed a forward fo Fitzgerald who was downed on the Blue and Gray 20-yard mark but Georgetown intercepted the next puss and the Maroon lost its best chance of beating its old rival. At the end of the season. Varsity insignia were awarded to the following: Captain Lou Healey, Jerry Fitzgerald and Mike Dunne, ends: Ray Smead. Joe Bill. Barney Fallon, and Tom Leary, tackles.

One Hundred EightyI HE 1924 UaSPRAI I SiJI.'AD Ol I FOR SPRINT. pRAt TICE One Hundred Eighly-iuvBASEBALL Varsity Baseball Coach: Jack Coffey Manager Chari.es J O'Neill Captain: Joi in Garrity r I ''HE 192} season, when reviewed in its entirety, is. though not a bad one. nevertheless a bit disappointing. Certainly, the record established by the -L team (nine victories and twelve defeats) is not at all conducive to braggadocio; and when compared with the work of previous nines, it falls far below the traditional Fordham Baseball standards. A disastrous Southern trip, double defeats byGeorge-town and New York University, and losses at the hands of Princeton. Sale, and the Army, prohibit the 1925 season from being adjudged a successful one. However, despite all this, the team displayed at times much fine basebal ability, auguring well for Fordham s future on the diamond, if turned to good advantage and nurtured by judicious and efficient coaching. The Yale and Holy Cross games bear out this statement Almost directly upon the rank playing which made the Southern trip distasteful to memory, the Varsity traveled out to New Haven, and there so worried the Bulldog throughout the afternoon, as to make Eli's 2 to 1 victory anything but glorious Fordham displayed a splendid brand of ball in this contest, which showed clearly that she was not without good Baseball material. 1'he game w ith Holy Cross was an even greater surprise. The unlooked-for return to old pitching form by "Fred" Waters and the airtight playing of the entire team that day, may well be considered one of the bright flashes of the entire season. The Purple, one of the strongest aggregations in the collegiate baseball spotlight, was exceedingly fortunate in squeezing out a 2 to 1 victory. These instances serve to bring out the spasmodic playing of the team, ranging all the way from the mediocre to the scintillating. Indeed, we feel that it was precisely the lack of consistent teamwork and a woeful dearth of good pitching that was responsible for the disappointing showing of the Maroon ball-tosscrs. In victory or defeat, however, the excellent work of a certain few individuals stands forth conspicuously. At the bat, Tex ' Landry led all his teammates with One’ Hundred Eighly-lhree an average of 400 In the field, too. this collegiate Eddie Collins surprised all in steadiness and reliability. It was not until the Yale game that he made his first error of the season Captain Harry" Schcrmerhorn lived up to all the forecasts of his prowess and filled admirably the responsible position of clean-up man in the line-up. On the bases, it was "Bill" Woerner who won the laurels from the critics, leading all in stolen bases. The pitching of "Joie" White was the mainstay of the Maroon, and had he another colleague to relieve him of some of the box work, there is no telling to what heights the chesty one might have risen. The E aseball year was opened at Fordham Field on the 2Sih of March—a cold and blustery day. The Varsity met and easily defeated the St. John s College nine of Brooklyn—12 to 2. Three days later, also at Fordham Field under the same adverse weather conditions that prevailed at the St John's game, the Maroon met Bow Join Fordham took the Maine Collegians into camp by a b to 4 score Both games were limited to seven innings. On April 1st the Maroon left for its annual invasion ol the South The first game was played at Richmond on April 2d. Fordham put across its third consecutive victory, beating the Richmond Club. 7 to 5. That ended the Varsity's winning streak. The Maroon lost the four other games which it played during Easter W eek. After bowing to Virginia. 10 to 5, Fordham was humbled by its traditional rival. Georgetown. 11 to o. St John's College and the University of Pennsylvania were also returned the victors over the Maroon by the respective scores of 5 to 4 and 10 to o. The game scheduled to be played with the United Stares Marines at Quantico. Virginia, was canceled, due to rain. The Varsity, after its five games on foreign fields, played on its home diamond again on the 1 ith. with Lehigh. The contest held an especial interest to Fordham rooters inasmuch as Lehigh’s 1922 nine had been coached by "Tom' Ready, the Maroon mentor during 192?. The game was a weird affair, the main factor in the 8 to 7 victory scored by Fordham being the seven runs tallied in the first frame through the Maroon's fierce battling. Lees, the star twirler of the Pennsylvania aggregation, then took the mound and held the home team scoreless for the remainder of the debacle. Following this victory, Fordham invaded the camp of its chief rival for metropolitan honors—N Y U The game brought out boldly the w eakness of the laroon in the pitching department, and the Violet romped away with the victors by an S to 2 score. The annual contest with Yale brought a big crowd of Fordham rooters to New I iaven Although the Blue had the better of it. the Maroon followers were rewarded for their loyalty with the best all-around teamwork the Varsity had displayed thus far. and Yale, aided and abetted by the breaks of the game and other things, had all it could do to eke out a 2 to 1 victory. The last week in April and the first two weeks of May saw a remarkable improvement in the play of the Varsity nine In this period. Fordham played five very difficult games, winning two and losing three. The Maroons two victories were scored over our old rivals—Columbia and Rensselaer Poly. The respective scores. 15 to 4 and 22 to 1. indicate plainly how well earned and decisive these two conquests were The Varsity's three defeats came at the hands of Princeton. I loly Cross, and N Y U., teams which had indisputably established themselves as three of the strongest college nines in the East Princeton won rather easily, 15 to 0; but Holy Cross and N Y U. were lucky to defeat Fordham. 1 he Maroon's showing against 1 loly Cross came as an especial surprise to all those who looked to the Purple to have quite an easy time ol it. The Varsity also played gamely One I kindred Eighty-fouragainst NYU. in an endeavor to retrieve its earlier defeat at the hands of the Violet. Though thwarted in its purpose, the team played brilliantly and creditably,as the score, 2 to i. plainly testifies. On May 15th, Columbia succeeded in evening up accounts with the Maroon and w as returned the victor on its ow n diamond by the score of 8 to 2. Saturday, May 19th, saw a happy and hopeful throng of Fordham rooters sail up the Hudson to West Point on the good ship Mandalay, to witness there the annual contest between the Bronx Collegians and the Cadets. The game was closely fought throughout, and were it not for misplays at critical moments, the Maroon might have pulled the game out of the fire. The Army, however, was quick to take advantage of every opportunity to improve its position, and succeeded in turning back the friendly invaders of the Point by the score of 4 to 2. However, on the return voyage the salubrious sail in the moonlight did much to lessen the sting of defeat. Jack Com-ey Coach 10 Four days later. Fordham severely trounced C.C.N.Y. to the tune of 10 to 1. However, on May 26th it met another stumbling block in the shape of the strong Georgetown nine which gained its second win of the year over the Marcon. The score was 4 to 2. On May 30th, Decoration Day, by a happy arrangement the Manhattan game was staged as a part of the proceedings w hich made up the Gala Track and Field Day. held under the auspices of the College in the Yankee Stadium. After the track events had been run off to the delight of the multitude, the Maroon crossed hats with irs neighborly rivals on the diamond hallowed as the favorite ball park of the "King of Swat." The contest proved to be rather a one-sided affair, Fordham w inning by a 9 to 1 score. The pitching of White and the timely hitting of Schermei horn were the main factors in the conquest. The season closed with the Crescent A.C. game in which the Maroon defeated the former collegians after ten innings of nip-and-tuck playing, by a last-inning rall f, netting them four runs and a 10 to t victory. We feel it would be entirely remiss to close this brief summary of the Nineteen Hundred and Twenty-three season, without a word of well-earned commendation to "Harry Schermerhorn, the Varsity’s star first sacker, w ho was of great service to the ream, not only as a playing asset but in the capacity of captain. He managed his men on the field in a manner that justified all the confidence placed in him by those whose happy choice he was for that position. Also, a mere glance at the vast array of first-class opponents that adorned the schedule will indicate to the reader the energy and devotion with which "Chris" Hoey entered upon the onerous duties of Varsity Manager of Baseball rr j 24 One Hundred Eighty-jiveBasketball, 1923-24 Coach Ed Kelleher Manager: Frank Cronin, 24 Captain: Vincent Cavanac.h. '24 THE Basketball Team of the season of 192.}-1924 was the best and most successful that has represented Fordham in many years. Commencing the year with a team comprised mostly of veterans, the outlook was bright. Coach Ed Kelleher was at the helm and called out the squad six weeks before the first game. Practice was held daily and the men put under strenuous training to et them into condition With the first game at hand, the men were physically U, and downed Cathedral by a wide margin. When the game was well in hand, the Maroon substitutes were sent in but the scoring still continued The next two games were lost because of one fact—poor foul shooting. These were the games with Catholic University and Rutgers, the former played at New York, the latter at New Brunswick. In both these games. Fordham scored as many field goals as their opponents, but time after time missed free shots from the foul line. In the Catholic University game, only three out of thirteen were successfully thrown while at Rutgers the Maroon missed thirteen cut of fourteen. In the next game, w ith C.C.N.Y., Fordham was downed again but only after a hard-fought struggle Following this came the game with the Newark Athletic One Hundred Eighty-sevenClub, conquerors of Catholic University, from which Fordham emerged victorious by a score of 39 to 22 In this contest again the second and third string men were used. The Maroon quintet then journeyed out to Bethlehem for an afternoon game and displayed poor basketball against Lehigh The Brown and White five came out on the long end of a 30 to 20 score. Show ing a sudden reversal and again back in form, the Maroon then handed the surprise of the season to Army. The Soldier five had lost but one game in almost three years, and that with three of their regulars out of the line-uo. The echoes of the whistle starting the game had scarcely died away w hen the Varsity was two points ahead. All through the first half. Fordham astonished the crowd with her clever guarding, dazzling speed, wonderful passing, and spectacular shooting The first half ended with the Maroon holding an 18 to 10 lead. I'he second half began, and this lead was being held when four personal fouls put one of the Fordham guards out of the game. The teamwork then seemed to fall off and the Army five commenced to draw close, until with three minutes to go the score was tied and the Soldiers surged ahead, w inning out by the score of 31 to 24. This point marks a milestone in the season, for during the remaining ten games the Varsity was at its best and won eight. In each one could be seen the success of the coach's system short, quick passing bringing the ball down under the net and so making sure of all shots The Maroon triumphed over Mt Sr Mary's and Trinity, teams which had established creditable records for the season. Then came the Crescent Athletic Club game. This was the most exciting contest seen on the Crescent floor all season. At hall time. Fordham was leading by two points. They increased their lead in the second half, but then the Half Mooncrs came on w ith a rush and with thirty seconds to play tied the score. An extra was contested in which both teams scored one point In the second extra period, the Crescents broke up the game with two long baskets; one from past mid-floor. Following this, the Varsity encountered the Seventh Regiment five and trounced them by a 40 to 24 score The next victory w hich was scored over Manhattan was sweet, indeed Last year, the Green quintet took the game by a one-point margin, and this year the Maroon evened up matters in the right way. The Varsity displayed uncanny shooting, lightning passing, and stonewall defense play. In losing this game. Manhattan's winning streak of eight victories was shattered The Varsity departed on its Southern trip the most successful trip any Fordham team has enjoyed in years. After dropping the first game to the strong Navy five, the Maroon bested the University of Virginia who two days later won the Championship of the State of Virginia from Washington and Lee. The style of play shown by the visitors bewildered the Southern five, and the Varsity was victorious by 37 to 24. Gallaudet College, with the most representative team in the history of that institution, was beaten the following night by an eight-point margin. This was Gallaudet s second defeat of the season. Fordham then concluded its trip by atoning for the three-point defeat Catholic University presented earlier in the season I he Washington five seemed helpless before the Maroon's powerful offense and defense, and the game ended with Fordham leading by 48 to 14. The season was brought to a close by defeating New York University. Last year, the game with the Violet five was not decided until two extra periods had been played. This year, how ever, the Maroon quintet, superior in every department of the game, triumphed by the score of 33 to 27 The game was fast and thrilling, and featured by the work ol the Fordham guards. The Varsity letter for this sport was awarded to Vincent Cavanagh. captain; Ralph Landry. James Zakszewski. Louis Healey, James Manning, and Frank Cronin, manager. With the completion of the new gymnasium for the season of 1924-1925, Fordham rooters may look forward to the really greatest team that ever represented the Maroon on the court. One Hundred Eighty-eightTRACK Varsity Track Coach Jake Weber Manager. Thomas Maloney. '24 Captain Edward E Swanstrom. '24 WITH the completion of the scholastic year of 1923-24. Fordham University closes its greatest year in Track and Field Athletics. It has been a season in which Fordham was represented by more athletes and represented more frequently than ever before; a year in which the second renewal of the Diamond Meet was one of the most successful events of the indoor campaign; and a year in which Maroon-clad men took winner's medals more often than any other group of Fordham athletes Under the capable guidance of Coach Jake Weber, assisted by the ever-industrious Manager. Tom (“Pink ) Maloney. Fordham competed in college cross-country runs, A.A.U. distance events, and indoor meets almost too numerous to enumerate. Practically all the members of the big squad shared in the team's glory, but none more so than Ed Swanstrom, captain both of the cross-country and track and field aggregations. Eddie closes his College career with a chest that is calloused from breaking worsted tapes stretched across the finish line. He was the mainstay of the harriers and a consistent winner in other meets Probabh the biggest event in a season of many features was the Diamond Meet. The games proved even more successful than in the previous year when Fordham's meet was one of the sensations of the season. I he 1924 games will go down in athletic history with the best in the country for the brand of competition and the excellence of the athletes. The inimitable Joie' Kay was on hand to win the most thrilling mile race of his career, and Bob McAllister equaled his world’s record of 11 3-5 seconds for the 120-yard dash In this meet, too. the track team had its biggest representation of the season, no fewer than twenty-five men being entered Max Schneider, '27, covered himself with glory, w inning the 7c-yard novice dash from a big field.

With the completion of the gymnasium and a ten-lap indoor track, this fall Fordham athletes will have a greater opportunity for success in track next year James McCabe. 25. will manage the next crop of athletes One Hundred XinetvIT HAS long been the boast of Fordham racket-wielders that the Maroon possesses facilities for the pursuit of the pleasure and exercise derived from tennis to a far greater degree than any other College in the country. Furthermore, this boast is not an idle one. for it is a generally conceded truth that Fordham's long series of white-lined courts far surpasses the best offerings of other universities, and that but few clubs can exhibit superior ones. It is only natural, therefore, that Fordham should turn out a Varsity Tennis Team that is in direct proportion to the excellence of the courts on which it displays its prowess. To be sure, the conquests of the past few years have not all resulted in the victory that was desired, for that was scarcely to be expected. However, it is noticeable that the "games won "column pleasantly overshadows its less cherished, yet equally honorable, neighbor. And this fact is easily understood when one stops to consider that there are probably more men at Fordham. as at practically all other universities, who are loyal devotees to the racket and tennis ball than to any other single sport. As we go to press, it is undoubtedly a t rifle premature to prophesy as to the success that will have been attained by the 1924 Tennis Team at the conclusion of its schedule. However, despite the fact that half of last year’s team has been lost through graduation, there is still such a wealth of material in the association that it is perfectly patent that the Maroon will have as powerful a representation on the courts as ever. The prospects grow' even brighter at the consideration that the strongest portion of last year's team in the persons of Jack Cronin. ’24. and Frank Walsh. '25. will again be driving the ball to the far corners of the court It is also to be expected that "Pat" Rooney, '24. will be persuaded to forsake his managerial duties for a sufficient length of time to enable him to get a sturdy grip on his bat and sallv forth to the defense of the net. TT924Q One Hundred Ninety-one m1X2 This year's aggregation is captained by lack Cronin, 24, who needs no introduction to the followers of the sport he will lead. Frank Walsh, '25, who will assume for the third time his position of No 1 man on the Varsity Team, is also well known not only in Intercollegiate circles bur also in the ranks of the leading Junior players of the metropolitan district The team should be greatly strengthened by the return to action of Tom Duross. 24. who was an outstanding star when he played on the Freshman Team. Iom. however, abandoned Intercollegiate Tennis after his performance as a yearling, and his appearance once more is a decided step toward the Maroon s advantage. The other candidates who are out fighting for positions on the team, include among their ranks such consistent performers as Dick Conley, 24 “Sid Cunningham. '24. Andy Sexton. 24. Ed Lyman. 25. Ed Burke. 25. Ed Hogan. 25. together with Chet' Carroll and Charley Murray of last ear's Freshman Team. Such a formidable list of candidates can do nothing bur augur well for Fordham's 1924 season at the net. Manager Pat' Rooney displayed his customary enthusiasm, which he always shows at the mere mention of the word' tennis "in arranging the Varsity's schedule, and practically all of the leading teams of the metropolitan district loom up as prospective opponents for the Maroon As usual, home and home games have been arranged with N Y U. and C.C.N.Y.. while the representatives from Stevens will journey across the river to be met at home as also will Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute. Further plans are being made to enter members of the team to represent Fordham in the New York State Intercollegiate Championship which will be held at the West Side Tennis Club. Forest Hills, L I , after which it is hoped an auspicious visit will be made to the Germantown Cricket Club for the National Intercollegiate Tourney. Although a great many stars will be lost to the team at the end of the year, the Class of 1924 has no fear but that it is bequeathing the future of tennis at Fordham to safe hands With Frank Walsh still leading off the fray, capably assisted by Ed Lyman Ld Burke.

The auditorium, museum, the library, the lecture halls, and the class rooms will be named after nations of the world: each bearing mural decorations which will artistically express the flag, the emblem, and the salient points of history of the nation to which the hall is dedicated. It is hoped to have in this building each year a celebration in honor of the nation whose hall is numbered among those in "The College of the Nations." A future development of this idea will be the granting of scholarships with a certain amount of financial aid to the holders of these scholarships. For the purpose of obtaining funds for the construction and maintenance of this "College of the Nations," the University is at present engaged in intensive work for an endowment. As soon as sufficient funds are available, construction of the new building will be started immediately. Already contributions have been received towards halls for a number of the nations, including Persia. Poland, France Argentine, India, etc. It is of interest to note that one of the oldest civilizations in the world Persia was the first to furnish funds toward the construction of irs hall His Excellency. N lirza Hussein Khan Alai. Minister of Persia to the United States started this with his personal contribution It is the hope of the School of Foreign Service that in the not-very-distant future, "The College of the Nations," with halls representing every nation, will stand forth in Washington as one of the world's greatest monuments, and that from this center of international education w ill (low a sympathetic understanding that will do much tow ard strengthening the bonds of friendship anJ commerce between the peoples of the world.Acknowledgment THE task of compiling a hook of this kind is not an easy one, but not all the credit must lx given to the staff of the Maroon, who so generously gave their lime and talent in making .this volume possible.

When Agrilin, an emulsion of these two substances, was finally perfected, it was tested in hundreds of hospital cases with splendid results. Agrilin was then recognized by the medical profession as the ideal mechanical corrective that could be safely used by anyone without fear of harmful after effects. A drug!ess way to relieve Constipation ACIRILIN is a snow-white, creamy emulsion. It is tasteless and odorless. The Agar-Agar corrects the tendency that mineral oil has to seepage when used alone. But Agar-Agar accomplishes far more than this. It has the remarkable property of swelling or increasing in bulk. This, in combination with mineral oil, softens and lubricates the waste matter and prevents it from becoming dry and compact. The intestinal tract is encouraged to help itself. Give up your favorite physics or cathartics for a time, and you will soon know for yourself the splendid results that AC.HIMN can produce without drugging the system.

Bvt w«n n Madison and 1th Avm, NEW YORK CITY U ill Law Make Exercise Compulsory? Damon Runyon in the A'etv York American of February S, 1924, said: 'i V l 11LE in Mac Levy’s gymnasium in Madison Square Garden, v| the writer observed a number of fat. pudgy men, some of them bald, stretched out on the gymnasium mats, playing handball, pulling at weights or trotting around the gymnasium Hour in a circle. They were business men from the stores and offices and loft buildings around the ancient Garden, trying to build themselves up physically, trying to regain a modicum of the vitality of the youth they wasted struggling for money. The earnestness with which they pursued their quest was almost pathetic. An hour or two a day given over to the same pursuit during the years of then youth would have made the struggle of their later years unnecessary. • Mac Levy himself is a well dressed, physically neat looking, pleasant spoken man. who watches his charges with great care. “Please do not smoke in here,” he requested, “they need all the pure air they can get.” “You seem to be doing a good business," the writer remarked. “Well, men are commencing to realize more and more the importance of keeping tit." replied Mac Levy. "We gymnasium proprietors of today aie leally little more than pioneers. Twenty years from now the man who does not take regular exercise will be regarded much as we now regard a man who does nor bathe regularly.” I bis is an interesting thought. jCONTISUEP ON '“That’s hard work for those men,” Mac Levy said, indicating the perspiring fat ones. “It’s hard work because they are not accustomed to it. “If a man made a habit of exercising regularly it would eventually be no more difficult for him than removing his shoes. It he does not take up exercise until comparatively late in life then it becomes manual labor until Ins muscles are loosened up. “Would you suggest laws compelling regular exercise? the writer asked. “That would be very nice for the gymnasium owners, said Mac Levy with a laugh. » While mortal man has made no such law, old Mother Nature has, and she never fails to exact a penalty from those who break it. Don’t fool yourself about exercise. A certain amount ol it is absolutely essential to mental and bodily health and vigor, ll you are now tit, you need exercise to keep fit. If your muscles are soft and flabby, your wind bad, and your circulation sluggish, the only tonic you need is exercise. The springy step and sparkling eye of youth can he retained through middle age, and beyond it. by treating your body properly. At Madison Square Garden Gymnasium you can arrange to take a systematic course of exercise under the direction of skilled instructors. Special instructors in boxing are in constant attendance.
