Oogpyjdglh.f 1928, by J. GerardCrbgan, ‘28 Edtlvr-in-Chitf AND John J. O’Brif.n, '28 Business Manager mmTO THE REVEREND RICHARD MARTIN, S. J. WHO FOR FIFTY FRUITFUL YEARS HAS DEVOTED HIMSELF TO THE SERVICE OF GOD IN THE EDUCATION OF YOUTH WE, THE CLASS OF 192.8 IN TESTIMONY TO HIM AS OUR GUIDE AND INSPIRATION OUR FRIEND AND COUNSELOR DEDICATE THIS OUR LAST EFFORT WHILE WITH ALMA MATER ur ism elCERO, when delivering his oration on behalf of Archias, must have had pass before him in vision the many joyous hours spent in pleasant associations in scholarly circles. It is little wonder, then, that the heart of the orator went out to the man. It has truly been said that an education is not the retention of the contents of books but rather the appreciation of the fine and the beautiful in life through them. A college education would be a failure, indeed, if one did not come to an intellectual and cultural knowledge of man and life. If, in the days that are to come, the perusal of these pages will recall the happy and profitable hours spent at Old Rose Hill, and will cause us to turn in gratitude to that Alma Mater which fostered us, then this work of love shall not have been in vain. OF « e: Book i r FORDHAM Book 2 , , FACULTY Book 3 , , CLASSES Book 4 ORGANIZATIONS Book j r ATHLETICS Book 6 r WIT Book 7 , ADVERTISEMENTSInto these pages has been woven the history of John Hughes, destined to become Archbishop of New York and founder of Fordham. The brief chronology of his life follows: 1817—Emigration from Ireland to America 1819 Gardener at Mi. Sc. Mary’s while a student 1826—Ordination to the priesthood 1838 Purchase of the Old Rose Hill at Fordham 1841—Appointment to the See of New York Foundation of St. John's College at Fordham 1846—Transfer of college to the Jesuits Consultation with Buchanan on the Mexican question 1847 Address to congress, assembled 1859—Laying of St. Patrick’s cornerstone 1861 Consultation with President Lincoln and subsequent voyage to Europe as special envoy 1864—Death May these pages bear tribute to his genius and may many be led to emulate him. Archbishop Hughes chose as our patron the Precursor of Christ. May there be applied to us that which was said of the Baptist, " Parare Domino plebem perfectam.” 4t O Alma Mater, Fordham, How mighty is thv power To link our hearts to thee in love Thar grows with every hour. Thy winding elms, thy hallowed halls, Thy lawns, thine ivy-mantled walls, O Fordham, Alma Mater, What memories each recalls. O Alma Mater, Fordham, How deathless is the flame By friendship's touch enkindled In the sons that love thy name. Those true and rugged hearts of gold, Whose memory our hearts shall hold, O Fordham, Alma Mater, In chains that grow not old. O Alma Mater, Fordham, While yet the life blood starts. Shrined be thy sacred image Within our heart of hearts; And in the years that arc to be, May life and love be true to me, O Fordham, Alma Mater, As I am true to thee.Rev. Walter F. Cunningham, S J.

IF you arc seeking flic ideal student temperament, you need look no further. In ”Vin” we have the refreshing combination of scholar and comrade. If you arc a baseball fan, "Vinnic" will tell you, just as readily and cheerfully as we will explain a thesis in cosmology, why Brooklyn should have won the pennant. Just as cheerfully, but alas, not as logically, for, if you must know, "Vin" is prejudiced—anything that comes out of Brooklyn is the essence of all that is good and praiseworthy—even the B M. T. But lest you think that our real philosopher's achievements were purely academic, let us remind you that "Vin” was one of the playwrights whose artistry enhanced the success of the One-Act Play Contests. Furthermore, we would have you know, and this quite confidentially, that he has inaugurated a class in zoology the interests of which arc chiefly concerned with "Bulls and Bears—habitat. Wall Street." Undoubtedly, "Vin," in you we have mcr a well-rounded character, and we are proud.HARRY THOMAS ARONOWITZ, B KJ nJXftnoTt $•; f ms Rani" "Snoz” "Harry" Bayonne High School i. -v Mtndel Club, 2. "TTARRY" is the type of person to whom one becomes almost immediately A i- attracted on account of straightforwardness of manner and friendly disposition. He is rather quiet and even reticent until one is fortunate enough to have the privilege of his acquaintance; then, indeed, he will be found pleasurably voluble and very congenial. Though an unassuming member of the class, 'Harry" is at the same time, perhaps, one of the most agreeable and likable of fellows. As a result of association bordering on comradery, we found him to be the possessor of those elusively definable, though distinctive, qualities that win and tend to perpetuate an enduring and w’arm friendship. Hidden under a reserved and earnest demeanor, "Harry" has qualities of sterling character that will stand him in good stead in what we are accustomed to refer to indeterminately as the "world." With ability and energy such as he possesses, we know that the professional world of medicine will be the more enriched by the acquisition of "Harry's" signal services. 1 lMiSliul i .LlttiuLJ u —• m “Jack" Brooklyn Preparatory School Immaculate Concepricv Sodality, ; Harvester Club, 2; G rr Club, 2, 3; Council of Debate, 2, 3; Interclass Basketball, 2, 3. AS may be seen from the list of “Jack's" activities, he had a hand in almost i i. everything around the campus; and our only regret is that he did not keep up the good work until the last hell had sounded. However, not a Fordham affair, whether social or athletic, took place without 'Jack’s" co-operation, and many a lively dansant was made more attractive by his presence. “Jack's" loyalty was always unquestioned, and more than one team traveling to Worcester was cheered on to victory by him. Yes, and even the "Hub" was taken by storm when “Jack" and the boys "hit town." Lest we forget. "Jack" held the much-envied and responsible post of beadle for three years. And for full many a day ro come we shall remember his stern and impassive demeanor as he presented the absentee list to be verified bv the presiding prof, for not even a facial quiver could be noted to mar the set jaw of our budding George Arliss. I.aw is apparently "Jack's" calling; a profession in which his loyalty and seriousness should come to the fore. 40 JOHN JEREMIAH BALOG, A.B 1928 MAROON [ U "Jake" "Raoloff" Xavier High School inminuilate Conception Sedulity, 1, 2, 4; Council of Debate, 2, 4; Mimes and Si IKw LJJI i JOSEPH M.

WE can remember, in the dim, distant freshman days, the mighty mice that New Rochelle entrusted to Fordham’s manlv care. The result of this trust we do not have to relate, as anyone who knows Fordham must know "Joe.” Roth "Joe” and Fordham saw their opportunity and took advantage of it to mutual gain. "Joe's" rise at Fordham was meteoric, his long years of painstaking effort finally bringing (in Senior) the coveted appointment of manager of football. It has been whispered that "Joe’s” greatest achievements were attained on ballroom floors where the perfection of his steps and the luster of his blond locks caused many a heart to skip a beat. In the classroom, "Joe” set a uniform standard of real excellence which did nor fail to gain him the recognition and approbation of all. May you conquer all before vou, "Joe," in the battle of life! 42 mm fy im n i 1 yttyt ill W.

QUIET, unassuming Leo has ever been our model of the cultured gentleman. For when, in the exuberance of our irrepressible freshman days, our enthusiasm tended to surpass all bounds of reason and discretion, Lco'shand was there coguidc us; Leo's saner, more mature, judgment prevailed. Primarily, this blond young giant from the nearer reaches of “upstate" was the student. Well read on every conceivable subject, when pressed for his opinion, his exhaustive knowledge could be truly astounding. One wonders that a man could acquire so much useful lore in so few years. Is it strange, then, that Leo should intend a life of teaching? We have no fears for his future—his logical mind, his capacity to dominate any situation, amply lit him to be a leader, a teacher of men. But above all things else, Ixo, when down life's pathway you see new and increasingly wondrous vistas opening before you, remember this—we of '2$ are proud to have known you, and we have ever though true friendship, man to man. u the exemplar of that great gift of God hum ? 1 43“"TO Regis High School Immaculate Conception Sodality, , 2, 3, 4. TO sonic of us, success will perhaps conic about in strange ways, and we may encounter it with something of wonderment and surprise, but with one of us, at least, it seems safe to sav that this will not be the case. Our friend Herman, above, strikes us as being that individual. For it would appear odd, indeed, if the man who during rhe entire four years of his college career persevered so unyieldingly in a mood of quiet, unobtrusive diligence, should evince any amazement at the happy attainment of his goal. Hence, we feel safe in predicting that Herman will welcome success as coolly and methodically as he has borne all the pains and efforts incident to preparation for it. This docs not mean, however, that Herman did not manifest a lighter vein in his personality, one that was seldom revealed except to his closest associates. If he could appreciate, impassively, the congruity of things on their logical side, he was also quite capable of estimating and enjoying their humorous and adventurous side.MAROON YYYmYrrrmrmj ARTHUR A. BELTROXE, B.S “Artie" tyjjL, „ lUlPI'li' AM'll I Stuvvesant High School Maidd Club, 2. ARTLLi" was one of Brooklyn's many contributions to the glory of Fordham. Tjl Of a silent and unpretentious disposition. “Artie" never troubled trouble, nor, on the other hand, allowed trouble to trouble him. Hidden away in that merry, carefree disposition,however, was a serious and lofty ambition. Amanofprinciplc and firm convictions, unwavering in his faith and loyal to the core, he was a rare example of one who really practices what he preaches. Consequently, when he spoke, everyone knew that some choice bits of wisdom were being imparted. Combine the qualities of a diligent student, good fellow and sincere friend, and you have a correct idea of “Artie’s" character. His lofty ambition is to win his way to fame as a surgeon. This conquest should be easy for such a worthy student and thorough scholar. There is, in truth, but little doubt rhar “Artie" will gain prominence in the medical profession; and as for us, our wishes for him go hand in hand with his ambition. _______ ,tfNTIAETOocr p,CHARLES G. RERGIX, A R. "Charlie” Iona Preparatory School Immaculate Conception Sodality, 4; Council of Debate, 3, 4; Rrf , 4, Freshman Forum. FEW, if any,possess the many qualities which are “Charlie’s.” His quiet disposition in contrast with his vehemence in philosophical discussions; his cheerful smile in contrast with his rather serious mien; these describe but one side of "Charlie.” To know him better, one must associate with him and partake of his sparkling wit. We do not know whether the famous Boston-Wcstchcster is prouder of "Charlie” than "Charlie" is of the railroad which daily brought him to and from Fordham, for you know he comes from New Rochelle. He is usually a quiet man, but let anyone talk disparagingly of his fair (?) New Rochelle and he becomes instantly aroused to display some of his unusual forensic talent so often shown in the Council of Debate. As his time at Fordham drew to a close, we could not help thinking that in the pathway of life "Charlie" would blaze a trail just as bright as he did during his college days. There is no question but that it will lead to success. Good luck, "Charlie." and may you always keep that pleasant smile!"Morry” De Witt Clinton High School IN the mythical firm or corporation of Schwartz, Simon and Binder, the last-mentioned is the junior partner. While we never investigated very thoroughly rhe inner workings of this partnership, we believe (and our belief is well supported by the senior partners themselves) that “Morry” is a verv important third. For with the advent of “Morry” the firm seemed to take on new life and make more remarkable progress in the intellectual world, for which purpose it had been primarily organized. When, moreover, rhe corporation as a whole became involved in some academic dispute, it was the junior partner who was selected to champion the corporation's cause. One can readily see the reasonableness of this choice when it is known that “Morry” has forensic command not only of one language but even of two. If he failed to refute in the one, he would surely do so in the other.EDWARD F. X. BOWES, A.B ■ JOHN H. BOYLH, Jr., A.B tNTIA lTDocr JO 1Mendel Club, 2. "Al” De Witt Clinton High School THIS, ladies and gentlemen, is the twentieth-century ultra-modern version of the chivalrous Don juan. We may, we are fully aware, have enunciated a truth that partakes of the nature of the startling, especially as you have no doubt seen the dashing John Barrymore star in the historic role. Nevertheless, “Al,” in virtue of having some regard for mathematical precision, takes precedence over John, who in one of his closing scenes as the daring Don becomes so lost in his act as to transcend the real. “Al," on the other hand, never soared too far up in the ethereal at any time. And notably when a stirring game of pinochle was in progress would lie then be eagerly materialistic. Some of the favored few, the inner circle of his friends, have been accorded the singular honor of listening to impromptu recitals by “Al” in his musical moments. The exquisite harmony of his music was equaled only by the quality of his smile, which constantly burst forth in rhe course of rendering the more ecstatic movements of the opus. -PHILIP CARROLL BRASSEL, A.B. “Phil" Regis High School Immaculate Conception Sodality, 1,2, 3, 4, Sacristan, 3, Assistant Prefect. ■ Harvester Club, 2, 3. • ,’ Junior Prom Commit tee, 3; Football, Assistant Manager, 1, 2; Freshman Swimming Manager, 3. TO rhosc who have come in contact with Phil” Brassel. the quizzical smile that only he could give will always be a cherished memory. The way he would cock his head on one side and look at you was a rare treat. To the best of our knowledge. “Phil" has never been known to have a disagreement with any of his classmates, and the reason is plain. One look at his smiling face is enough to dispel whatever unfriendly things you might have been tempted to say to him. "Phil" never tried his hand at any of rhe sporrs as an athlete, bur as assistant manager of football in his Freshman and Sophomore years he did much for athletics. As assistant manager of swimming he found vet another outlet for his ability. We wish him all the success his jovial nature is sure to bring, and assure him that the years will never dim the memory of his radiant smile. -4] I IlMMirl I IBM Lu V7VRegis High School Immaculate Conception Sodality, 1,2, 5, 4; Council of Debate, 2; Freshman Forum. AN’ uncontrollable penchant for trios—a claim to fame based on the achievements - of an avuncular pugilist—and last, but far from least, a "flivver"—all arc inseparably bound up with the name of "Pat." Regarding "Pat's" deserved popularity with the fair sex, we shall not even try to csnmarc the myriads of fluttering hearts which have been set a-throb afrer one furtive glance at his beauxyeux. We doubt if "Pat” himself could determine. Lacel) we had come to anticipate the usually inimitable recounting of his weekend escapades with the "fliv" each one original, verily, almost too original. For a’ that, wc enjoyed "Pat," and our admiration for him was such that we hesitated to advance for his credence a scarcely probable tale, for we knew that our Pat," despite his rrusrful gaze, could pull a longer bow than most of us.

IF wc should hear of John Broderick as a Justice of the Supreme Court, or as the Senator from New York, we shall be assured that lie has reached the peak in his chosen profession. Here at Fordham his talents led him to the Council of Debate, where in many an involved question he held forth in ardent argument, and his yearning for the theater forced his steps to the Mimes and Mummers. Athletics also laid claim to a share in his spare moments, and under his direction many a basker swished points in a close gvm game. John’s social entree was enhanced by a genial smile and cordial nature which won for him a host of friends both on and off rhe campus In regard to social affairs, themselves, John, cis said, had and has quite a reputation, and many tea dances were and are graced by his presence. So, John, to you success cannot be wanting; and in days to come wc shall cherish the memory of you as a true, genial friend. TjffoJAMES FRANCIS BROWN, A.B. Jim" IF you were to ask us about "Jim," we would tell you that he is a true friend, and a clever fellow, {assessing an acute and subtle sense of humor. We would say all this with absolute sincerity, and then, paradoxical though it may seem, be forced to admit that wc do not know him. Wc know a "Jim" that is talkative, cheery, and always unobtrusively friendly. Yet, withal, we arc positive that the real "Jim" is a recluse; one who goes his way alone. The real "Jim" is never enrhused, never carried away by emotion or prejudice. He is first the judge, coolly assigning each thing its value, and then the Spartan, guiding his footsteps accordingly. It is small wonder, then, that he is always at odds with hypocrisy, tyranny, sophistry, and ever the champion of truth and honesty. Neither examinations nor the faculty troubled "Jim”—they had no reason to, for "Jim" is potentially great. And now in bidding good-bye, wc have this to say, "You will actually be great, 'Jim' if you think it worth while." JOSEPH R. BRUINA, B.S “Joe " “Untermeyer” Stuyvcsant High School Immaculate Conception Sodality, 1, 2, 3, 4; Mendel Club, 2. EFLECT on what a sincere friend should mean, then add a pleasing personality and a most convincing manner of speech, and you have become acquainted with Amiability is second nature with "Joe.” It was because of this quality, combined with his convincing oratorical ability, chat we always found him in the center of a group, elucidating on some scientific or philosophical question. His classmates will always remember him for his unselfishness in proffering aid and his readiness to act as spokesman for the class. From what we have said of "Joe,” anyone would predict a brilliant career at the bar, but a 13.S. course and a most satisfactory mastery of its intricacies have influenced him co turn his endeavors towards the field of medicine. Of "Joe’s” future we have no doubt, for we know that he is capable of successfully making his way in his chosen profession. Keep up the good work, "Joe,” you have the ability, and behind it you have our sincercst wishes for your success. ,xiNTIAeT0oc%. 1928 MAROON u 4yj i S l; lUi 3 11 ' 1f2 1 Li=== l i (N3 LJ 'I HiiWf i , tw ALEXANDER C.

When "Burly" condescended to favor the Glee Club with his membership, Director "Ken" Bailey was so keen in realizing the possibilities of his thrilling baritone-tenor, that we heard our representative cantor risking his voice in the Intercollegiate Glee Club Contests of 1927 and 1928. Besides his recognized ability to warble a chord of well-intentioned tone, "Burly" could cajole—wc do not mention how—an epic poem into jxAsing as a brilliant epigram. No doubt, posterity will read in its "Story of Philosophy" the upholding of the simple life by the epigrammatist and opera cut-up—Alexander C.

Tins feat speaks volumes for "Jim’s" powers of concentration and singleness of purpose. "Jim" won a high place in the esteem of his classmates, and there he shall remain—a gentleman, scholar, athlete, orator, a man of whom one is proud to say. "I called him friend."V. WILLIAM J.

That he deserves to rank among those chosen few is evident from his success scholastically, athletically, and socially. As an athlete, "Bill” played a distinctive game on the Freshman Basketball Team, proving himself at every opportunity to be the dependable mainstay of the five. rordham’s baseball standing, too, leaned heavily for support on “Bill’s" mighty bat and brilliant fielding. His efficiency on the Frosh team was so impressive that it gained him a secure berth on the varsity squad the following year. Happiness and contentment have their manifestation in the quiet, gentle smile that ever adorns “Bill s'’ face. Rarely, if ever, in all his four years at Fordham has the sunshine of his smile been clouded. In the years that are to conic, "Bill" will unquestionably attain the niche-befitting a leader as readily and as surely as he won his way into the admiring, loyal hearts of his classmates. 58JOSEPH A.

WHEN we chink of John, two pictures always arise in our mind. In the first, we see "Pete" Thoroughly enjoying a rough-and-tumble battle with two fellows bigger than himself. In the second, "John D. appears on the rostrum, scornfully pointing at his shrinking opponent. From these two pictures, let us extract two notes "a fighter and a thinker—” and we have the essence of "John D. Cahill,” known affectionately as "Pete." "John D.” should he a politician, for we are sure that in his youth not even "Al" Smith exhibited such potentialities. "Pete" can talk his way out of most situations and fight his way out of the rest. Bur perhaps we are giving the wrong impression.

Wc do not know whether he affects environment or environment affects him, but we do know that he always seemed satisfied and everyone about him appeared the same. Not onlv can "Tom" truthfully say: "I have no enemies," but he can go even further and say very positively: T have friends -friends in the academic world, in the athletic world, and in the social world.” Why? The reason, wc believe, lies in the fact that "Tom" is a real product of a college education. He is not at all presumptuous, yet thoroughly capable of discussing either philosophy or football; restrained, yet prepared to rally to the support of truth and reason, neither broad-minded nor narrow-minded, but open-minded; open to logical discussion and proof. In a word, we feel that the reason "Tommy" is so likable, is that wc can readily call him to mind as a thorough gentleman. We assure him that it is as such that wc will always remember him. 62J.

While some of the class chose studies that required the minimum in hours and labor, “Frank" took unto himself chemistry and biology— testimony of his resoluteness of purpose. Prior to this startling trend to serious study, “Frank” had never inflicted upon himself anything other than the necessary—and in this self-preservation he was one with many of us. “Frank's” well-directed efforts helped to make that event of events in Junior year—the Prom the success it was. For four years, moreover, “Frank" added a fine tenor (or was it bass?) ro the glorious Glee Club concerts.

Though laboring under the handicap that citizenship in Bayonne naturally thrusts upon him, “All-State” acquired both his A.B. and the esteem that went with the degree—A. R. E. (American Railway Express.) In the express business, “Bart" was jack of all trades, and accordingly filled with efficiency almost every position from clerk to president. His record for calling and checking was one ol the few that America felt assured of preserving from foreign invasion. It seemed that checking followed “Bart" even in college, for as class beadle in Freshman and Sophomore years it was his duty to check up on those present and those of the A. W. O. L. contingent.

ONE of "Bud's" many notable characteristics is his manifest loyalty to both class and college. Always willing to lend a helping hand, "Bud" consistently promoted all activities that tended to insure the welfare of the class. Imbued with the true tyronic spirit proper to a Freshman, "Bud" readily championed his class' cause in the Frosh-Sophomore boxing tilt, and gave a more than creditable exhibition of ring generalship, boxing skill and punching power. Ever afterwards, the upperclassmen had at least a healthy respect tor "Bud's" interpretation of "The Manly Art," while his classmates were prone to have profound admiration for it, even to the extent of boasting. As Chairman of the Patronage Committee of the Junior Prom. “Bud" so well discharged the weighty responsibilities of his office rhar much of the signal success of that unique social function of junior year was justly attributed to him.

TWO vears ago a group of awe-struck Sophomores gazed in admiration at a series of posters graphically disclosing the delights of that “night of nights” the annual Junior Prom! After many conjectures as to the identity of the artist, closer examination revealed (modestly hidden away in a corner) the initials ol none other than our own “Ray.’ We have since come to expect such artistry of him and, needless to say, our expectations have been more than fulfilled. This episode ma serve to delineate “Rays charming hobby. That "Connolly Ray" (as our French prof would insist on calling him) “is a very remarkable fellow," a jxrusal of his activities will disclose Whether his support was sought in studies or athletics, “Ray" asked nothing more than that it be asked in the name of Ford ham. In parting, xvc arc forced to admit that xvc arc quite envious of your future, “Ray,” because xvc feel confident that even in life you will be the artist, ever detecting the finer shades of rhought and embellishing them with the same skill that characterized your too-brief stay among us.[EC CHARLES ROGERS CONWAY.

FORDHAM is indebted to Regis High for many a popular student. Regis has, however, bestowed on Fordham only one “Chuck" Conway. Laughing, likable "Chuck" held in college life a place singularly his own. "Chuck" may best be described as everybody’s friend. A part of his host of friends were irresistibly drawn to him at first sight, no doubt, by his pleasant countenance. It was, however, in the manifestation of his character that "Chuck’s" secret of success lay. The misleading grace of "Chuck's" facial expression covers a wealth of fistic Ability. That he possessed this prowess was conclusively demontrated when Fordham first turned to boxing, for "Chuck" was one of the first to be constituted a member of the college’s team in this sport. "Chuck s" activities spread beyond the roped arena, however, for few indeed were the socials he missed, and ever was his word weighed carefully in class affairs. In the battle of life, "Chuck's" smile (that same smile he carried through Fordhain) will, we feel confident, prove an invaluable asset to him. 69JOHN A.

His ready smile and courteous manner were much in evidence and his businesslike attitude was clearly manifested in all his undertakings a trait which augurs well for his future success. John exhibited his generosity and interest in Fordham affairs by acting faithfully as electrician for the Mimes and Mummers. In this capacity he applied himself diligently and expertly behind the scenes. A thankless task it was, indeed, as far as praise and glory were concerned; but such thoughts were far from his mind. As a fitting reward for his untiring cfTorts on its behalf the New Jersey Club unanimously elected John secretary. In this office he displayed both cnerg and ability, and so realized the hopes and confidence of his friends. It is no far-fetched conclusion, then, to predict that John, with such traits as he exhibited at Fordham, will surely succeed in whatever he undertakes as his life’s work. And so we extend to our serious and jovial friend our most sincere wishes for his future success. 70JOHN F. COTTER, A.B.

TO look ahead for a moment into the not-too-far-distant future, one can readily visualize some fortunate member of the Class of 1928 as he proudly announces to an admiring audience, “Why, certainly I know John Cotter; I was in the same class with him ar Fordham.” One might wonder long at John's many and diversified gifts and seek far for their source unless familiar with ‘ Jack's” genealogy. Sprung from ancestors—on one side the best in Ireland; on the other, the finest in England he inherits only the finer qualities of each. He has the light, the courage, the enthusiasm of the Celt; the perseverance, the tact, the determination of the Anglo-Saxon. Add to these the characteristics of the American "go-getter” (for John has already achieved some degree of success in the business world), combine the net product with a magnetic personality, attractive appearance, and a taste for clothes which made him one of the best dressed men at Fordham, and then ask yourself, “How can he fail?” The answer is, “He can't.” JOHN P.

HAILING from Jersey City, this tall, slender classmate of ours (aptly called the "Count”) is a true gentleman in every respect. We found him to be quiet, modest, and very obliging. In the held of study he was classified under the serious-minded type as a consistent, ambitious student. To speak of the "Count” in a lighter vein, however, we found two weaknesses to which he was partial -one was his natural pride in that fair city across the Hudson, enough of that. His second lay in the field of sports. Anyone who wished to enjoy a good argument, needed but to voice even the slightest criticism against the N. Y. Yankees in the "Count's” presence. He had that team's batting and fielding averages down to the third decimal. For verification of the "Count's" extensive knowledge, ask some hapless classmate who is a Giant "fan.” During his days ar Fordham, the "Cotinr" took a sincere interest in all the college’s teams, as a real, loyal supporter and a true Fordham man. Alter graduation, the "Count’s" destiny (according to his own admission) lies in medicine. m 72"Frank" "Prexy" Xavier High School Immaculate Conception Sodality, 1,2, 3. 4: Harvester Club, 2, 3. 4; Freshman Forum; Junior From Comm it let, 3 Dance Committees, 1, 2. 4; Class Secretary. , President, 2, 3.

While his hits were not very frequent, they were good for triples when they did come. In fact, if memory serves us aright, he led the team in "three-baggers." This tendency toward leadership held good in his studies, also. Ever clever in Latin and Greek, he realized his true forte in philosophy. In this subject he made a specialty of hundreds during his Junior year. As a Senior, "Tony" was an instructor in the Chemistry Department, and Father Martin could boast of him as a really good assistant. On a par with his athletic and scholastic excellence was ' Tony' s' cheerful disposition. In consequence, professors and classmates found it extremely easy to get along with him.

"Dan" played in stellar form throughout the Interclass Basketball Tournaments, even though the Class ol 28 was not always victorious. The Ram also had a word ol f raisc for his clever write-ups of games, in which were embodied pungent though lclpful criticisms. One of "Dan's" pet hobbies was to munch the justly popular saccharine sorberro sandwich. Another, shared by his butting Buick and on occasions by his friends, was to play "tag” with every consecutive "El " pillar that participant being declared "it" whose paint was first coaxed off.

For four years, accordingly, "Dick" journeyed from Astoria on the famous 1. R. T. to Fordham Road, where he was usually just in time to be too late to reach class by the ordinary means of walking. We shall always remember the hurried, death-dcfving, sjxrcding taxicab in which "Fat" was wont to hasten to beat the fatal last bell. But when "Dick” did reach class, his worries ended, for studies and learning were his food and drink. If there was anything he enjoyed better than chemistry and psychology, it was biology and ethics.

When "Charlie's" magnetic presence was most conspicuous by his absence, the odds were ten to one that he was attending a roaring fire in some section of the city, for after all, what f;re could be a fire without our representative "Fireman?"

Possibly, in the dim years ahead, when a lull comes in the rush of life and dulls ambition, wc may pause and hear a name Joe's" name echo from the cherished days of youth. 86JOHN F. DOHERTY, A.B.

DURING the last few years, Jersey City has attracted metropolitan attention lor two reasons: million-dollar fires and John F. Doherty. We were often almost irresistibly tempted to regard "Doc" as the modern version of "Peck's Bad Boy"—irrepressibly mischievous, full of fun, and complete master of every situation. To grant John sufficient space for the renowned record of his never-to-be-forgotten years at Fordham would indeed require an entire Maroon in itself, for such was jocular John. His chief claim to fame lay in debating, and let it be said he was indeed a master, worthy of anyone’s mettle in the field of forensic accomplishment. Possessing a keen sense of humor, a fluency of expression, and an all-imporcant analytic mind, "Doc" is adequately fitted to grace any platform, whatever the topic of discussion might be. Rumor has it that John intends studying law, and while his past augurs well for his future success, we rely on his vivacity to overcome the tedium of the courts. ROON l Jlp GERALD JOSEPH DOYLE, A B.

It can be said of "Jerry," also, "He never made a commonplace remark." T would seem incongruous to hear a trite phrase from this man with the india-rubber brand of humor. As long as we can remember, "Jerry” has been chasing blues with wit and anecdotes, song and saga, each accompanied by that flashing dental smile. Even the exorbitant demands of rhe Jehus of the taxi (evidently an indispensable necessity in Jerry’s" daily journey to school on schedule rime) have failed to erase that contagious smile.

FROM the list of activities one might he led to conclude that John was a staid and over-conservative youth while at college. But banish the thought, dear friends! These New England boys may talk with a twang bur they act with a bang. While it is a moot question whether gentlemen prefer blondes, we think it safe to say that gentlemen blondes are far from unpreferred, especially when their thatch is enhanced by such a wave as above exhibited. John's scholastic and social paths converged very amicably, and neither suffered under lus sane ruling that there was a lace for everything and everything in its place. Four years as a resident student probably rendered the campus a more familiar spot to John than his own home town of Danvers, Mass. Bur what is now the campus’ loss will be, we presume, Danvers’ gain, for Fordham sends him forth with her stamp of approval and a wealth manv milestones of success.

ENDOWED with a reticence and stoic imperturbability far beyond our efforts to fathom, there is in the “Gaff” the priceless knack of acquiring friends and keeping them.

An unfortunate injury early in his career deprived Fordham of a promising and brilliant star. Truly it may be said, however, that the strength of his character surpasses even that of his body, for in all his four years at college, never has he been found wanting in any trial which put to the test his loyalty and devotion to his Alma Mater and to his class. But, above all. "Frank" possesses that exceedingly rare combination sincere earnestness and Irish wit. This it was that endeared him to the hearts of his classmates. We wish you the best of the best, Frank," and trust that this same good nature of vours will smooth out all life's wrinkles for you.

George is undoubtedly the class’ popular courtier. For four years he graciously presided at every Fordham function, where his kind consideration served to reassure the backward student and bashful stranger alike. George was also our ultimate criterion in the correct usage of English and in polite society. Offices seemed to fall as readily to George as debts to most of us. A mere glance at the rolls of Fordham's religious, social, and athletic organizations will unfailingly bring to light the high place the amiable George modestly held among the powers that be. We believe that “Dugg“ will prove to be the ideal pedagogue, and charm and wit which made him so universally beloved at Fordham to cement the friendships he will find so easy to form. 92“Nat” Evander Childs High School BEHOLD the very personification of mild-manneredness! So mcclc and humble was "Nat" that he even admitted the foregoing summation of his character to be very true of him. ' In order to explain this extraordinary humility in "Nat” we must have recourse in the main to circumstances and especially the circumstance of place. For “Nat” originally hailed from a little hamlet caller Rahway in the wilds of New Jersey. Such a home town would narurally handicap one and prevent him from being aggressive, and so it was with “Nat.” Ic is to the credit of “Nat,” however, that this handicap of original residence did not deaden his ambition to become a doctor. He set out with dogged determination to attain his objective; and with that in mind lie chose the science course at Fordham. Nor did “Nat” limit himself to those subjects which were required for entrance into medical school. He became very much interested in the study of philosophy, and so rounded out an education that will stand him in good stead when he takes his place in the ranks of his profession. DiC E.

PAUL came into the Class of ‘28 from Fordham Prep with a keen interest in all the activities of his class an interest which he retained and, if possible, furthered during his four years. His whole-hearted, encouraging sympathy for everyone and everything vita! to the class gave unstinted support to the many activities that crowded our college days with happiness. His unassuming, frankly sincere manner won our lasting respect and admiration. These qualities of character naturally urged active membership in the Freshman Forum as well as the Council of Debate, and promoted the prestige of both these societies. Paul will be remembered, too, as a conscientious contributor to the Ram. As a true friend, Paul's sympathetic understanding was uncqualed; as a classmate, his sportsmanship was superb; as a man. his ideals were lofty, and in the strength of his convictions he was fearless. Because we have known Paul and tasted of his staunch friendship, we wish the world of his future the same good fortune. May that world reciprocate most magnificently, Paul! 94JOSEPH PHILIP FARLEY, A.B. “Job" Fordham Preparatory School Harvester Club, 1, 2, 3, 4; Junior Prow Coww ttee, 3; Swimming, Captain, I, 2, ), 4; Interclass Boxing, 2. EVER since "Joe” joined us in Freshman, his striking personality continually added to his ever-increasing score of friends. Always seeing the best side of everything, "Joe" helped to brighten many a dull class day, especially by his ability to play a joke. "Joe" was a veritable ventriloquist in view of his ability to conjure up in the most out-of-the-way places the cries of cats, crows, and dogs, so that lie could make use of them most effectively. His facility in these vocal gymnastics prompted us to urge "Joe" to star them on the vaudeville stage. His jovial nature, though, was balanced by his application to studies when the time arrived. Ever since the inauguration of swimming at Fordham, "Joe" has captained the team, thus showing his remarkable ability in that sport as well as his popularity. In almost every swimming meet, "Joe" was counted on to carry his team to triumph— and he did.1 In short, "Joe's" ability to win success in sports, in class, and in social activities, points to and heralds a wonderful future for him. 95 ’Whitby" "Kid” Emerson High School 5» Immaculate Conception Sodality, 1, 2, 3, 4: Mendel Club, 2; Cross Country, 2, 3, 4; Interclass Basketball, 2. 3, 4.

A splendid athletic record brought out by his career over the hill and dale courses as a member of the cross-country team, his excellent work as a forward in basketball, and a scholastic standing worthy of the real philosopher and scientist, proclaimed him a sterling Fordham man. Let it not be thought, however, that "Whitey's" modesty prevented him from attaining the quintessence of good fellowship, for memories of his pleasant smile will be often recalled by the friends of his college da vs at Fordham. | 7t 11 Jmi m "Matty" Eastern District High School Men del Chib, 2. -'A TATTY" may be described as one of the luckiest students who ever c JlYJL college. For, first of all, after his ideas about coming to Fordham imu attained some degree of definiteness, he came near (but not too near) forgetting the necessary evil of registration. By dint of surprisingly energetic effort he managed, somehow, to be the last on the migration quota from Eastern District High School. Again, when a series of fatalistic accidents happened to his equipment over in the laboratory, making him head of what was popularly known as the "Test Tube and Beaker Breakers' Club." that was just the year in which "Matty" received the largest refund checks in all the science courses. Although to all outward appearances, "Matty" is, ro pur ir rather mildly, indifferent, he is in reality one of the original scats of learning.

"Joe" was a familiar figure on the campus, having spent his prep days also at Fordham. He made his mark at the Big U., as his many friends w ill testify. Although he participated in many college activities, his chief interest was the promotion of school spirit; and he helped more than one Fordham team to a glorious victory by leading a hearty and inspiring Ram In Freshman Spanish, J. Devlin was a leading light. With the aid of the professor's queries he helped more than anyone else to supply a brand of humor that will remain forever in the annals of the class. It mav be that "Fittv" looked aw e-inspiring in his white sw-eatcr with the maroon centered on it. At any rate, "Joe" cannot say that his days at Rose Hill were lacking in social successes; and no matter what the occasion or the company, it was an obvious fact that "Joe" was not the least entertaining of the assembly.

ALTHOUGH it is an actual fact that "Bill" hails from our great metropolis, one - would never think so. He is a veritable paragon of quietness and study -not one of those who, when inspired by impending disaster, flare up in their studies only to quiet down when the danger is passed, but a sincere, painstaking, consistent scholar. Were one to stroll through the gym during "Bill's" leisure hours, he would see him frolickingoer the basketball court, nonchalantly tossing baskets with an entirely original but appealing grace. "Fitz" did not let his studies entirely exclude all other activities for which he had a liking, but he will admit that his ability to "plug" was one of his outstanding virtues. He was, too, an active member of the Immaculate Conception Sodality. With graduation. Fordham will lose one of her most persevering sons and the medical profession will be blessed with a thorough gentleman and profound scholar.

Montaigne’s ITnes are quite to his taste: "Nature forms us for ourselves, not for others, to be," not to seem." He is himself, and that’s all a wise man needs, for John may be justl accounted wise. Literature and the arts greatly interest him, and he has so plunged into their depths that he has emerged fairly saturated with a keen understanding of the finer things which arc nowadays so heedlessly scattered to the winds. Although artistic in his tastes. John was much more scientific than the average student, as the eager throngs attested in their anxictv to have the benefit of his guiding counsel in that baneful subject physics. John dearly loves any sort of a game that involves keen competition with the element of chance. The worst luck, according to his formula, is certain ro become the best and the best will forever remain so. Here is a lad that has some truly line-qualities, qualities that have molded him into a man of whom Fordham can be justly proud. 101DONAL F. FORRESTER, A.D.

"Joe” was feloniously assaulted by a ceiling which almost obliterated him. Though "Joe” remained unscathed, he decided that his home s ceilings were more stable. In view of the fact that any office entrusted to "Joe’s” hands was performed with facility and efficiency, vve feel confident that such conduct on his part presages a brilliant career at the bar—the profession he has declared to be his vocation. 1031928 MAROON "Badc" Norfolk High School Partheniau Sodality, 1, 2, 3, 4; Glee Club, 1, 2; "Monthly" Staff, 3, 4; Mendel Club, 2; Freshman Football. YOU’VE heard of Norfolk the garden city of the South? That’s "Babe's” home town! When "Babe" lirsc came to Fordhain from Norfolk High School in Virginia we were under the spell of Creole atmosphere; but oh he lives in Brooklyn now, and the spell is broken! A Southern gentleman, it is said, never changes (this one loves to sleep, but who doesn’t?). We can’t censure "Babe" for that. Moreover, to hear him bewail the cold and snow would cause anyone to think that the South really does exercise a fascination unknown in the bitter North. "Babe" is a ladies’ man, he has that nice infectious way about him; one that will surely compensate him after he has earned his "M.D.," and the shingle is swaying in the breeze. For advice pertaining to the heart, just step into "Babe’s office, but complain of deafness when he commences raving about the beauties of the South and says that they arc better looking than "these women of the North," for Babe s raving is just the least bit prejudiced. MATTHEW J. GALLAGHER, B.S. 104¥ THE still, unruffled waters of the sluggish Harlem were once the haunts of the youthful William. Hence, when one recalls what influence environment may have, it is little wonder that William has been endowed with an enviable placidity of nature!' No matter what took place, ''Bill" was never ruffled. Whether he received high marks in difhcult subjects or incurred the well-meant, but not always gentle, plaguing of his intimate friends, he was impassive. The characteristic restraint of emotion, so well adapted to cold logic and dispassionate reasoning, no doubt prompted "Bill" to elect law in h:s Senior year. Who knows? Perhaps at some time or other one will find himself standing in the dock, with the testimony and the court against him. The District Attorney, sensing a conviction, appeals to the emotions of the jurors, till his very voice sounds like the exultant cries of wolves cornering their prey. But now, our leader, Mr. Gallagher, calmly rises, and prescinding from all sentiment, adroitly marshals his forces of reasoning . . . Thus the habit of years of cultivation on "Bill's" parr nor only may prove to be invaluable to him but also of inestimable value to others. k TIA 105JOHN H. GALLOWAY, Jr., A.B.

WHEN, in the years to come, honors will have been conferred upon our John, as they undoubtedly will be, then will his classmates of 28 recall his many collegiate laurels. Not once, but often, was John awarded a prize—the first prize— for academic standing. But John’s greatest honor was that given to him by his fellow students. Jchn Galloway's friendship was possessed by ail, and all considered themselves cxtrcnvclv fortunate, but this friendship of his was too magnanimous ever to be entirelv reciprocated. When there was a difficult problem to be solved, John was consulted; when decisions were to be made, John’s advice was sought; and generally it was his plan that was adopted and, under his skillful direction, successfully carried out. And so will it be in the future. The opinion of a successful man is always desired, and from present indications we are certain that John will often be consulted in many matters of far reaching import. 1C6 AUSTIN G. GEHAN, B.S. Tlx" ’Austie” Morris High School Mendel Club, 2. TiiX’’ smiled his way successfully through four years at Fordhain and into the hearts of all his classmates. But perhaps it is not quite accurate to limit this esteem to his classmates, for one of our first memories of “Tex" associates him with a French class,a smilingly-rendered translation, and a congratulatory smile in return, from the professor plus the all-important good mark. In him we seemed to have one of the future educators of the class, as he was a student in all the courses in pedagogy and an authority to whom all the difficulties of the classroom could be referred for solution. He obtained much valuable information in this field while managing a playground during the summer. Is it hazardous to make predictions? In “Austic’s ' case we lecl no trepidations. We arc certain that his students will find in him a teacher who in the last analysis strives only for their welfare both mental and moral. 107"Babe” Bovs' Higli School Football, ]. VX 7HEN "Lightfoot Babe" Gelman used to attempt to mount the stairs in the VV Biology Building, his progress could have been likened to the rumble of held artillery on the inarch, and ex aequo to the roar of a stricken Spanish bull. From rh is description, one might be led to conclude that Herman is a gentleman of some sue; and he would conclude correctly. It was, in fact, his size that was responsible for "Babe’s" being numbered among the candidates for the Freshman football team. This was before "Babe" became interested in the safer and more leisurely hobby of raising a mustache. Despite the fact that his mustache is barely visible in the above picture, "Babe" will have you understand that ir is not a so-called baseball one -“three out and they’re all out." As for us. we readily conclude that a man who will spend three long years in the cultivation of a mustache, and endure the accompanying ridicule of his classmates, surely deserves a high place in the aristocracy of Brooklyn. 108 A vrncv i LAWRENCE G.

It is the duty and, we dare sav, the pleasure oi our equestrian to subdue wild horses and to teach his friends how to sit a saddle so that pictures taken of them while mounted will give the impression that riding is a sport and a pleasure; not a characterization of the "clinging vine.” Unfortunately for ”La,” Fordham has no polo team or he would have acquired innumerable varsity letters; and were the opportunity to present itself he would be our candidate for the laurels of Tom” Mix or "Ken” Maynard.

Though quite partial to the various student organizations, as is evident from the preceding record, "Charlie" roused himself to participate in the many social functions of our "L and other colleges. Were one to ask "Doc" which subject he liked best, the answer would invariably be: "no preference, and especially not physics or chemistry, but then one needs them for Med, so what can a fellow do?" concluding with, "Sav, has anvonc the twentieth experiment?" 110IRVING GERSHKOWITZ, B.S. “Gersh" De Witt Clinton High School Mendel Club, 2. IRVING'S figure was a vcr familiar one about the campus, but. like the proverbial Mary's Iamb, wherever Irving went, the books were sure to go. We cannot, in truth, recall ever having seen him without his precious texts. Furthermore, these books, in virtue of their inseparability from Irving's person, were always at hand to be used as references or authorities in the many academic discussions in which Irving was wont to participate. In fact, it is our firm conviction to this day that these books as interpreted by Irving played a major part in the vanquishing of our friend Horowitz, who had never admitted defeat in argumentation until he was rash enough to differ with Irving and his books. Our "Gersh," withal, was a consistently cheerful chap. Should lie fail to attain rhar on which he had set his heart, he would not be at all dismayed, but would go about laying plans for a second and. if need be, a third arrempr.

Though “Dave" now lives in a recently-excavated section of the city, he can still trace his lineage back to the days when the good Don Bosco held forth down on the East River. An invaluable member of the Glee Club, "Dave sang as though lie meant it; exactly on par with his partner “Al." “Dave," moreover, was so loath to have his voice enjoy its fame all by itself that he forced it to share part of its renown with the Harvester Club.

In fact, no one of his classmates will be able to think of him in any other role. “Morry’s” extracurricular activities were largely confined to attendance at college social affairs and inspiring cheering at athletic contests. No one, however, can ever forger his most interesting and illuminating talks as a member of the Mendel Club.

Picture in your mind's eve, if you will, the assiduous student from nine to two, politely exacting his pound of proof; the enthusiastic athlete from two to live; and ar least part of the time thereafter, the carefree artist, lampooning with his droll creations our most serious thoughts; and you have a meager appreciation of our genial friend. The sophistries of life, no matter how cleverly they have been clothed, have always been stripped of their disguise bv "Charlie’s” merciless logic. This coveted faculty, uniquely blended with an inexhaustible sense of humor, made him a welcome member of any circle, whether the discussion dealt with philosophy or the gentle art of caging a basketball. It is the realization of this versatility that tempts us to brave the uncertainties of prognostication and predict for "Charlie" not only success but that which is rarer contentment. 115 EARL W. GRAHAM "Zev" "Shorts "Dinty” Akron High School T09tb.aU, 2,2, 3, 4, Bait ball, 1,2. 3,4; Track, 2, 3, 4. IN 1923 there came to our portals from that far-distant rubber city, Akron. Ohio, one Zev" Graham with one intent to uphold the West's high standard in athletics against whatever opposition our less rugged Easterners could offer. So capable and spectacular a player was he that he won a varsity position at halfback in his Freshman year. He needed not even the equivalent oi one "time-out” to endear himself to Fordham’s football enthusiasts who soon realized that a new era of football history had dawned with the acquisition of this fearless warrior. How Earl acquired the nickname, "Zev," was a coincidence. "Zev”—America’s one-time wonder horse -matched strides with Papyrus England's pride the dav Fordham played Lehigh. To fittingly climax a day of superb play, Earl made a sensational run of 68 yards for a touchdown, enabling the Maroon to win by 9 6. and the attending crowd spontaneously roared its approval with shouts of. "There goes Zev!” His genial personality followed him from gridiron to diamond, and his efforts played no small part in bringing baseball championships to Fordham, and not infrequently did he thrill us with his dashes around the sacks, satis son chapeau, in a manner that should warn Mercury to look to his laurels. He has not confided to us his plans lor the future, but whatever he undertakes to do we feel assured will be done with a zeal which Fordham alone can infuse, and by a man of whom she can be justly proud. 116 GEORGE L. GRAINGER, A.B. Brooklyn Preparatory School "Monthly7,2, 3, Editor-In-Chief, 4; Mimes and Mummers, 7,2, 3, 4. WHEN talent was being distributed, George must have been present on more than one occasion, for he has plenty ro spare. In his Freshman vear, George graced the ranks of the Mimes and Mummers and the staff of the Fordham Monthly; and from then on was most prominent in borh of these organizations. His best effort on the boards was his brilliant acting in “Alberic, Archbishop of Ghent." His contributions to the Monthly were a real literary treat; he was one of the poets of whom Fordham might be proud. Diffident almost to the point of shyness, George had while at college a conservative circle of friends that could have been greatly enlarged had he so wished. With these chosen few he was very popular. He was, however, welcome in any company, and place was made for him everywhere. Besides being a first-rate poet and a pleasing thespian, George is a loyal son of Fordham, lending his active support in every activity, and doing his share toward the development of a greater Alma Mater. m IRVING GREENBERGER, B.S. "Irve" High School of Commerce TIN Pan Alley" need have little or no fear for a successor to Irving Berlin, should the famous and moneyed composer decide to retire, for in the person of his voting namesake hereon pictured he has one to further, if not better, his prestige. To hear "Irve" play a soullul opus was to listen enraptured; to soar lar away on the wings of thought to a world of happiness and repose. If his mood were one of gaiety and frivolity, so effectively did he infuse it into his music that unconsciously and irresistibly we would sway in harmony with his rhythmic syncopation. Such was "Irve" the musician. As for "Irve," the student and scholar, he really proved himself to be, as some wag once facetiously remarked, "What professors write to Santa Claus for." He was very methodical and diligent in his studies, and in note-taking he was particularly adept; as Ins proficiency in shorthand greatly facilitated and expedited recording summations of lectures. So here we have considered "Irve" as the musician, student and scholar; and in the role of each he is eminent. But, to us, in the role of "friend" he is preeminent. 118WILMOTJ. GUESS, B.S. "Wil” "Guessie" Immaculate Heart Academy Glee Club, 1,2, 3; Mendel Club, 2. SOME twenty odd years ago "Wil" first howled his arrival on the sea of life, appropriately enough, at Watertown. Since then our hero has ventured afar from native heath, and it is now when he is terminating his sojourn at Fordham that we pay him tribute. His Frosh year, as far as we know, did not yield a fruitful harvest of hayseeds; but under the tutelage of sophisticated Father Knickerbocker, he rid himself of the hayseed and soon sought the bigger and better things. “Guessie," to be sure, was associated with the Mendel Club but more prominently with the Glee Club. An accomplished artist at the piano—in fact, the pride of Watertown he was soon urged to accompany the Glee Club. His work spoke for itself. Every young man usually has difficulties to solve, and "Wil" was no exception. Medicine or music, each aids the aching body, which would it be? Medicine eventually won out, but then many an M. D. has a piano in his home. Why not “Wil”?JOSEPH W. HAMTOEOX, A.B. Joe" Sr. Peter's Preparatory School EACH morning, from the Jerome Avenue Station of the I. R.

Among the many that commandeered these mechanical steeds could he found our "Joe." , "Joe," moreover, seems to he an exception to the general rule that good students arc small. punv-Jooking chaps with hardly enough strength to carry the books with which they arc usually loaded. His broad shoulders and husky body are marched with a brain of the same dimensions. Although quiet and retiring in appearance, "Joe" was addicted to relating stories of his native Jersey during recess from class, and in this way did much to help the hoys to forget fatigue. We arc uninformed as to what "Joe" intends ro do in the future, but rumor has it that he is preparing to follow medicine as his profession. From a knowledge of "Joe’s" performances in the last four years we have the temerity ro assert that as a doctor, or as anything else to which lie aspires. "Joe" will he in the van. 120I I HtU.

However, after a short time he drew us to him, not because he bore a prominent person’s name but because he is "Buck." He joined the Glee Club and for four years labored unceasingly towards putting Fordham among the leaders in the East. Besides this, "Buck" had more than a passing interest in all other Fordham activities. He will be remembered for many things, but mostly for his loyalty to all. "Ruck" could be counted upon as everybody’s friend. His kind disposition and his readiness to help were evidenced so often that we rather expected it in time of need. it was Wesley who said, "Do all the good you can, bv all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can. at all the times you can, to all the people you can. as long as ever you can." "Buck” has made this his primer for life. With it there is no question of what the future holds for him. 121 §r%'JAMES A. HARRTTY, A.B.

FOR "Jim " will there be reserved in our memories an undisputed, immovable place won by his distinctive fastidiousness. Why, "Jim" was so particular about his appearance the tilt of his hat. the hang of his clothes, the style of his shoes that he became deservedly one of the foremost men vvortln of consideration lor the title: "The best-dressed man of the Class of ’28!" This easy-going young man from Brooklyn Prep strolled with enviable nonchalance through Ins college course, stopping frequently enough, however, to lend an appreciative and enthusiastic hand to the interests that absorbed us all. From his background of impeccable and dignified attire, "Jim" readily stepped into our truly artistic activities. He beneficently graced our Glee Club and loyally patronized our theater. "Jim's" genuineness and frankness commanded respect, his quiet humor and unswerving loyally to his fellows placed him within Fordham’s cherished circle of gracious gentlemen. Good luck to you, "Jim," is 28‘s sincere parting wish!EDWARD F. HEALY, A.B. “Ed" Regis High School Immaculate Conception Sodality, 1, 2, 3, 4: Harvester Club, 2, 3, 4.

We have been anticipating the recounting of his memoirs for sonic time. Ed" has been with us for four too-short years, and yet we feel baffled an enigma, indeed! No one, associate or professor, has to our knowledge plumbed the depths of his unruffled serenity. An impassive demeanor that belies his inexhaustible fount of resources; a countenance that can remain bland in relating weird "Banshee" talcs that defy credulity; a disposition that "comes up smiling"— such is "Ed." In later years we shall summon the recollection of "Ed" and indulge in a reminiscent chuckle over the picture he conjures up, for real Irish wit has been and always will be associated with him. Future problems will come easy to "Ed"—we are sure of that. A cryptic smile, a mental girding of the loins, a pithy summation and the task is done. Good luck, "Ed," and please don't lose that rare smile, we like to think of it.ROBERT J. HEIN, B.S.

IF we attempted to catalog and properly eulogize "Bob’s" achievements at Ford ham the pages of this volume would be filled to overflowing. No mere list could ever summarize "Bob's" doings among us, for perhaps his best accomplishments arc hidden from those who arc eager to proclaim his worth. The salient feature of "Bob’s" make-up is an aggressiveness and tenacity of purpose which the heaviest odds cannot diminish. His energy was inexhaustible in his efforts to attain an end upon which he had once set his heart. Ir was truly the good fortune of those who knew him well to be privileged to witness the loftiness of the ideals which were his. The force of his passion for work was directed toward the furthering of Fordham’s athletic ambitions and his yeoman service in her behalf has done much to substantiate her claims on supremacy. "Bob’s" skill with the pen early earned him a post on one of the leading daily papers and his proficiency as a member of the Ram staff was time and time again exhibited in the sport pages of our college weekly. His success has been great in all fields, and we have decided that this must be due to the natural qualities which have long measured his worth as the prince of fellows and the loval friend.■’HcLr" - Sc.

JERSEY has no more vehement supporter than Harry- not even Senator Edwards in fact, one would place his health in jeopardy were he so reckless as to cast the slightest slur on the "cow country" when in Harry's company. Harr)' proved himself to be the antithesis of the old concept of brawn with dwarfed, or at least dormant, mentality, his scholastic record being a worthy tribute to himself, and his success in the debate councils, both Freshman and Varsity, further established his mental activity. It is difficult to say which of Harry's attributes appealed more to his friends his brain or his brawn. The appeal, indeed, was there, as his unfailing presence at all Ford ham social affairs proved. Harry, however, did not restrict himself by any means to Fordham affairs, his affable disposition and ever-accommodating smile warranted hat popularity which made him welcome at many a gathering, where ’tis further said that Harry, on occasion, was wont to enliven the ivories with ravishing rhythm ion; and vou know music hath charms to soothe other than savage 89 JOHN F. HENXESSY, A.B. Bud’’ "John F.” Brooklyn Preparatory School Parthenian Sodality, 2,3, Council oj Debate, 4; Maroon Staff, 4; Freshman Forum. BEHOLD this striking strawberry blond—a glaring exception to the notion that red hair is synonymous with a quick temper and a pugnacious disposition. “Bud” is the owner of that brusque voice that greeted one over the telephone with an “Hello, Fordham!” that sounded both encouraging and businesslike. Aside from being a trusty guardian of the switchboard, and chief of the bureau of information. " John F.” was a sound student of no mean ability, as his marks of the last four years will testify. In his spare time—what little he could call his own — “Bud" could usually have been found in one of the many theaters rhar crowd this growing borough; and it is our lirm conviction that “Bud’’ intends to be a theatrical critic and publish a life’s work entitled, “Who's Who and What’s What in Shows on Fordham Road.” Reluctantly do we leave you, “Bud,” to harken to the call of success as readily and as surely as you responded to the buzzing of the phone during your switchboard days at Fordham. "Doc” Sr. Peter's Preparatory School Immaculate Conception Sodality, 1, 2; Council of Debate, 1: Freshman Forum. DOC" is rhe new answer to rhe old riddle, "Can one he a good student and a good fellow?” To know "Doc” is to know that the answer rests most certainly in the affirmative. There is only one thing in this world, know ye, as regular as the appearance of Santa Claus on Christmas live, and that is the ever-present smile on "Doc’s" face. It’s always there, whether it he before or after an exam,or between the halves of a very hotly-contested football game, although in this ease we must admit there is clearly observable just a little trace of concern. But alas! nothing in this world is perfect, and so it is with our "Doe." His one defect, or rarher ailment, we sneak here in hushed tones, is his tendency to succumb rather readily to the spell cast by blue eves and blond hair; but "Doe" is a gentleman, at any rate, for you know what is said nowadays about preferring blondes. 127JOHN VINCENT HIGGINS, A.B.

His activities were of a nature that demanded unusually hard labor, and "jack’s” response was loyal and whole-hearted. As treasurer of the class for four years and as Chairman of the Prom Supper Committee, "Jack” proved his steel to the unquestioning satisfaction of all his classmates. That that steel was of the finest Toledo temper was well shown by his praiseworthy conduct in the foregoing capacities. "Jack" was also an eminent debater. 11 is eloquent delivery and level-headed arguments completely outclassed and refuted those of Ford ham's many opponents. Law is "Jack’s vocation, and upon this profession vve feel certain that Fordham has bestowed another noble son. As a parting toast, and in token of their esteem for him, "Jack’s" classmates chose him for the most esteemed elective position in the college—that of Prcsidcnr of the Athletic Association.JOHN O. HOLMES, B.S. "Jack" St. John’s Preparatory School Parthenian Sodality, 1, 2, 3, 4; Harvester Club, 2, 3, 4; Mendel Club, 2. “ TACK" is one of those fortunate individuals who take life's buffets with a smile and return to the wars with their equanimity undisturbed. Rarely, indeed, has John’s placid brow been ruffled by the passage of a frown. His quaint custom of retiring at eight p. m. on the eve of a final exam, and subsequently passing said final with honors has won the undying respect of the slaves of the midnight oil. For the past two years John denied us the boon of his society over the week-ends, for ere the last clang of the final Friday bell died away, John faded into the mists of Jersey City, not to return until Sunday evening. This desertion, John, did sadly puzzle us. "Jack” is going to follow in the footsteps of the illustrious Blackstone, and the passing years will surely reveal a larger "John O." ensconced behind a massive mahogany desk, chewing a "corona" as all orthodox jioliticians do, and directing the civic destinies of our neighbors across the river. B8MORRIS HOROWITZ, B.S. “Percy” "Bai.dy” Boys’ High School TT HILE this gentleman's photo may not reveal his patent attractiveness as the V V subject of an inspirational work of art. we assure you that he has triumphantly proved it to our satisfaction throughout his four years with us. For did not his sparsely covered cranium sponsor the advertisement that of all advertisements in the subway and elevated trains was rhe cynosure of all male eyes—that of Hcrpicidc? You will recall that the advertisement read. “Going—going—gone!" Now we are proud to say that when the agents for Hcrpicidc were frantically looking about for a model head from which they could represent the “gone' stage, they chose our own Morris; whence the unique nickname of ' Baldv.” “Baldy" drifted in every day from the swamps of outlying Flatbush. As if that weren’t tragically humorous enough, he persevered in the perfection of his subtle “line" until his renown as a joker became a byword. “Milt ' Gross had better look to his laurels, for "Baldy" is funny enough to win some of them away from him. 130VINCENT E. MULL. A.B. “Vin” “Vince” St. Peter's Preparatory School Immaculate Conception Sodality, 2, 3, 4; Council oj Debate, 2,4. BEHOLD “Vince," and learn that no man should ovcrcmphasiz-c a first impression. When you first meet "Vince” you perceive a reserved and reticent young man of neat appearance; but your further association discovers a wit of the first order whose subtle repartee is refreshing; whose disposition is, indeed, enviable. As a scholar we have in "Vin” a young man for whom neither Demosthenes nor Darwin held any terror. And it is said that the Council of Debate was indebted to him for many an entertaining and enlightening dissertation upon some baffling turn in the day’s discussion. Although "Vin” never went out for any varsity team he could frequently have been found in the gym. Nor was this all; for while he would give or lend a fellow anything he invariably drew the line on parting with his season pass, as he himself was always eager to cheer the teams to victory. Wc do not know what lifework "Vince” will undertake after he has left us, but we are confident that in us pursuit he will be successful. 131WALTER F. JACQUES, A.B. Walt" •am late Conception Sodality, 1, 2, 3, 4. RHODE Island's boasts may be many, but to our mind us proudest is Walter F. - Jacques. "Walt" graduated from La Salle Academy, Providence, R. I., and after carefully perusing many college catalogs, rightly decided that Fordham’s was ideal. Accordingly he made Brooklyn his home town and Fordham his Alma Mater. Unquestionably, Fordham knew that the athletic "Walt" was coming and had the gym built in anticipation of his arrival, for the Class of 28 was organized bur a short time when the "athlete's paradise" was opened. From that day to this, one could find "Walt" taking his ultra-daily dozen there. While track and basketball keenly interested him, handball secured his heartiest co-operation, consequently, he was rated one of the seeded players of the courts. "Walt's" loyalty to the teams was such that rarely was there a game during our four years at Fordham during which that powerful voice was not heard in the cheering section. We have learned that Walter intends to continue his studies ac Georgetown Medical School. May his success there be even greater than here at Rose Hill! La Salle AcademyRegis High School Immaculate Concept eon Sodality, . 2, 3, 4. WHRN we say that there is no one in the class by whom "Ed" is not liked, we realize that we are making a rather universal statement. And yet, with full knowledge of the facility with which so general an assertion is denied and overthrown, we do not hesitate to uphold it. On first thought, this popularity is the prominent feature of “Ed's’' character, though it is, to say the least, not the only one. He is a studious chap and applied himself to more than average advantage. As a true Fordham student, however, he did not carry the pursuit of his studies to such an extent that he neglected other activities. Take him all in all, "Ed” should rise to the attainment of whatever goal he may seek. It is rumored that “Ed" is favored by a call to the highest vocation that exists. It is quite true rhar he is well equipped for such a life. Whatever he may do, the heartiest good wishes of his fellow classmates accompany him. 133ROBERT J. KEANE. A.B.

BOB," unfortunately, did not come to us till Sophomore year, but by June of that same year he was quite firmly and satisfactorily fixed in the hearts of the Class of ’28, for to use the well known expression, "Bob" has "personality plus." The "plus" in this case being a cheerful nature that is irrepressible as well as irresistible. This happy trait of "Bob's" character was not at all restricted to his social activities but was also extended to his classwork. We have had much evidence of it in his many interesting and at times, amusing philosophical objections. To conclude a brief biography of "Bob," such as this, without having made reference to his Ford would be most incomplete. It would be as unpardonable as separating rhe now famous "We”—Colonel Lindbergh and his "Spirit of St. Louis!" "Bob" claims the distinction of having owned the fastest "flivver" at Fordham; and very few of those who accompanied him on any of his week-end trips disagree with him! 134ROBERT J.

FORTH from Regis Prep sallied this happy-go-lucky youth, seeking only friendship and a favorably-inclined disposition for his contagious fun and his merrv jokes. Throughout his four years he was fortunacc enough to find both; and we in truth were all the happier. “Bob's" interests were one with Fordham's; andj in short all Fordham smiled Contentedly from out the twinkling eyes of this tall, lean classmate of ours. "Bob” took it upon himself to play at every sport without discrimination, simply for the sheer fun that was in it. At times his versatile self turned to debate, although he was decidedlv partial to the columns of the Ram. As a savory sports writer of wit he will long be remembered. "Bob" was at all times, however, a helpful companion to his fellows and a loyal friend. May the best of luck attend this happy man whose wit precipitated many a philosophy quiz into a riot of fun. May fortune smile on "Bob' who has smiled us through so many years of study! 135WILLIAM A. KENNA, A.B. "Bill” "Hold-out" All Hallows Institute Immaculate Conception Sodality, 1,2,}, 4; Council of Debate, 2, 3, 4. QLJIFT, unobtrusive "Bill" pursued his quest of the sacred parchment without any ostentation. In regular class we knew him only as a student who always had the correct answer when called upon, yet one who never raised an absurd objection. Outside of class, however, lie was a pleasant and agreeably clever conversationalist with a charitable word for everyone. Beside his scholastic conquests, as shown by his marks, "Bill” achieved eminent success socially. A loyal patron of tcrpsichorc, he was very much in evidence ar all the college dances and, judging by his companions, he was no stranger to the realm of pulchritudinous femininity. Rumor, moreover, had it that "Bill” rode not alone from Mount Vernon in the mornings! "Bill" intends medicine as his profession. Ol his success at the medical school we have no doubt, and his pleasing personality will insure his ultimate triumph in regular practice. We arc sorry to lose a friend, but we gain an ever-present memory that time may mellow but never mar. 136[fA V Uu HENRY P. KENNEDY, A.B.

Not satisfied with these experiences, "Skipper" thought that he had a good voice (an idea engendered by practice backstage and presented himself as a candidate for the Glee Club. Evidently he was not alone in his opinion, for "Skipper" has sung in even Inrcrcollcgiate Contest to date. "Cap’s" preferred field, however, was not behind the scenes nor on the concert stage, he chose rather to spend his leisure time in the Village of White Plains. Many a cargo of jov did he bring to the fluttering hearts within its boundaries. It is known, too, that he took enough away to square the deal" Behold the principles of economics in practice!

THAT "Jem” possesses that much-prized capacity for executive ability and thorough efficiency which would clearly demonstrate any man’s claim to distinction, is manifest to all his classmates. Undeniably a very busy man, as the foregoing list of activities shows, “Jerry” nevertheless found leisure time enough to devote to the service of his host of intimate friends. On "Jerry” was bestowed the honor and the important office of Chairman of the Sophomore l)ancc. It spoke well, in truth, for the overwhelming success of that immensely popular class activity and the incomparable ability of its chairman, that “Jerry” was elected to manage the uniquely outstanding social event of our college career—the Junior Prom. Once again “Jerry's" tireless, unstinted efforts on behalf of the Class of '28 were crowned with merited glory. We arc tempted to resort to our usual pastime of making predictions in Jerry's” case as in others. But as far as "Jerry” is concerned, there is absolutely no necessity for prophecy as his character is one that will achieve renown before an appropriate one can be conceived 138SEYMOUR S.

Aside from the fact that he calls New Jersey his native land—rather, in spite of it—Seymour is a very ambitious young man. His one abiding hope that served as a beacon to light his way throughout the tedious hours of lecture and laboratory is that some day he may be the one to elevate the medical profession to an even higher plane of glorv than it enjoys at the present time. Truly his is a commendable ambition! To deviate from his all-consuming ambition, Seymour was fortunate while at college in having a wide range of acquaintanceship. At times, to be sure, it was very trying for him to “do himself proud' in both scholastic and social obligations. But, at any rate, the fact remains that he did it—and exceedingly well, too! 139JULIUS KLEIN, B.S. "Kleiny" Emerson High School WHEN "Kleiny" was a youngster (and like all youngsters very bright), great things were predicted for him out in staid old Wcchawkcn, but the members of that community never would admit, of course, that such a birthplace would prove to be a handicap to their omniscient youngster when rhe rime should come for him to set out for college. At length the day came and we were pri ileged to number 'Kleiny'’ in our midst. After we became better acquainted with him the inevitable, ' Where arc you from?" was put to him. Readily and boldly the appalling answer came from his lips, "Wcchawkcn." Well, needless to say. "Kleiny" went "riding" right then and there and, after his "journey," was a very humble lad—remarkably chastened in spirit. Hence, although probably unaware of it, the Town of Wcchawkcn owes us a vote of thanks, for when its native son returned, it had reason to reiterate, "Great things are ahead for him," and so they arc!HARRY J.

The pages of the Monthly were the scene of his initial success, for our genial friend is quite adept in the penning of the short story and well-expressed verse. As a fitting reward for his early work on the Monthly he was appointed to an associate editorship in his Senior year. With the advent of the dramatic season, "Ed" again came to the fore, displaying his histrionic talents in able portrayals of feminine characters. In athletics. "Ed" exhibited a strong penchant for tennis. As in his other activities he was among the foremost of the devotees of this sport. Indeed his was a familiar figure on the courts. With a view to his future, "Ed " has prepared himself for medical college. That he will succeed in the latter is the unshakable conviction of his friends. 142LOUIS KOSMINSKY, B.S. "Lou" West New York High School Mendel Club, 2. THERE arc those who arc without enemies and rich in friends, such a one was "Lou,” and for our part we arc grateful for the tour years’ association that has given us such a classmate at Fordham. To know him was a pleasure; nay, more, it was an honor. If there was one weakness in our friend it was a devoted interest in bacteriology. In fact, "Lou” would rather discuss the intricacies of the microbe world than cat and drink In the gatherings of the Mendel Club, "Lou" was ever a leader, and time and again he submitted findings that pointed him out as a budding scientist, ordained to an enviable reputation. Tn the days that are to come we doubt not that "Lou" will be a guiding light in the vast fields- of scientific research, and we predict that his name will be known far and wide wherever "microbe hunters” may be. 143"Vic” "Count” Passaic High School DURING our earliest days ar Fordham vve were frequently assailed hv weird unnatural sounds resembling a soul in torment. Tracing this racket to its source we were confronted by a huge horn, behind which, blowing enthusiastically and wirh ever-increasing volume, stood the diminutive "Vie." When the error of his ways was finally brought home to him (after much belated effort on our part), "Vic” gracefully disposed of the beloved "fish-horn” and took his basso-profundo into the Glee Club whose harmony it has since generously enriched. The "Count" is intensely, almost religiously, loyal to that metropolis of the Hinterland, Passaic, and stands ready to quiet anyone daring to lift his voice in disparagement of his native city. "Vic'' is a philosopher of parts and a "distinguishcrof note, and his philosophical harangues were always permeated with much useful information and keen observations. The "Count," according to his own admission, will enter the field of pedagogy. We hereby tender our sympathy to any ill-advised student foolhardy enough'to engage the redoubtable and resourceful "Vic" in intellectual combat. 144m JOHN F. KUERZI, A.B. All Hallows Institute TN chcir vain attempt to be conspicuous by a feigned superiority, college men may become unpopular. There arc, however, those who because of their character and ability not only create admiration but maintain it. During our own times, when men's castes and diversions arc so monotonously similar, the man who proves the exception is usually sought after and appreciated. Such a man is John. Possessing a retiring nature, John is the very personification of the oft-quoted "Cum tacent, clamant." His was truly an eloquent reticence, for despite his reserve, his personality and ideals won him many admiring friends. Underlying his quiet disposition, there were discovered to a privileged few, exceptional talents with a decided taste for literature and nature-study. Whatever will be John's lifework we feel confident that in the successful pursuit of it there will be left on the sands of time an ineradicable imprint of his truly remarkable progress. Even more cherished by his friends will be the memory of his conservative influence while at Fordham. HOWARD T. LALLY. B.S. Slats” "Howie” Dc Wirr Clinron Glee Club, 2, 3, ■ ; Track, . CLINTON High, it is true, has produced the embryos of many renowned men, hut her outstanding product in our humble opinion is "Howie” Lallv. When "Slats” first came to Fordham he resembled a pink-and-white bambino, but my, how times have changed! Though still young in appearance, there is now an abundance of grey matter and trained ability behind that fair countenance. "Howie" is the most promising, if not the most finished virtuoso that the portals of Fordham have ever welcomed. Nor was his renown confined to the campus, for although he naturally did not say much about it. we know that his popularity was spread throughout the East. In the days to come he will, no doubt, continue to charm his audiences with the strains so exquisitely rendered from his violin. "Slats” will always be remembered by those who know him intimately. Carefree, unconcerned, yet never neglectful, always willing to lend a helping hand wherever and whenever possible, he cannot help but radiate happiness.

THIS is the popular owner of that pleasant drawl you have heard for the past two years when you sent in a call to Fordham. As telephone operator of the campus, "Lawl's" knowledge of numbers, especially those in the vicinity of New Rochelle and White Plains, was exceedingly large and c er at the service of a friend in need. A murmur in "Frank's" ear, a number culled from the recesses of his memory, and a lonely boarder walked on air for the balance of the evening. It has been said, though, chat certain numbers which frequently set the wires humming were never divulged— thanks to "Frank's" consideratcncss. In addition to his telephonic activities, "l.awl" also had a number of interesting theories unfortunately opposed to scholastic philosophy. Buc the good point about "Frank's" objections, was that he could always crv summarily shoot them full of holes himself. W'lth a mind that can see the flaws in its own reasoning as well as in others "Frank" surely has durable equipment for the future.FRANCIS A. LAWLESS ,Jr., A.B.

AS can easily be seen from "Frank's" varied activities, he is a Jack of all trades and, contrary to the old adage, he is a master of them all. Whether it was in the calm of a Harvester Club meeting or in the center of a heated argument in the Council of Debate, "Tex" was never found wanting to display a sense of humor that was invigorating and a thought that was steeped in logic. To mention all of "Frank's" qualities in a single paragraph is almost impossible It suffices to say that he was a dynamo of energy, willing to pour out his all for the success of anything he undertook. His devotion to the class was evidenced by his whole-hearted response to each and every call upon him. His love for Fordham was manifested by the fact that he attended her every affair, were ir debate, athletic contest, or play. "Frank" intends to enter the profession of law. h is certain that if he uses that same personality; that same sparkling humor and wit which have been his through his college davs, he will rise to the heights of a Marshall. 148Boxing, 3. THOMAS P. LAWLESS, A.B. "Tom’’ All Hallows Institute TOM" came to us in Junior from Cathedral College, and we always wished that he had come sooner. In the darkest moment of despair; in the most serious moment of contemplation and study; he had a cheerful word, for beyond all doubt his was one of the brightest dispositions in the class. However, his entire complex changes when he enters the resin-covered "ring" ro trade punches wirh an opponent. He becomes serious and moves about with the agility of a "Benny” Leonard, the skill of a Tunney, and lands with the fierceness of a Dempsey. "Tom" is, moreover, a great lover of the theater. Few, if any, arc the Broadway productions which he misses. Am difficulty about the modern play or thespian can be settled with a definiteness which belongs to him alone. His word in these matters is the final say. "Tom" intends following law as his profession, and we cannot help but visualize him winning many cases by his genial personality and logical argumentation. Good luck, "Tom," and mav the future he kind to you?HOWARD J. LEAHY, B.S. "Howie'" Andover High School Parrheniat,t Sodality, 2, 2, 3, 4; Harvester Club, 4; Glee Club, 1,2; Mendel Club, 2. HOWIE" is one of those strong, silent men who hail not from the West but from Northern New York. For two years he devoted himself to the mental disciplining of chemistry and physics and. in Junior, as if rewarded for his past labors, seemingly reveled in philosophy. When the boarders convened at night for Bull Sessions, "Howie" stepped into the lead with his well-told stories and was a capable chairman of these informal meetings. Perhaps our "Howie" will startle the world one day with his stories some fanciful, some true—bur he will in cither case find his audiences large and eager. "Howie" expects to enter the medical world; and if his scholastic standing while at Fordham be any promise of future success we may rest assured that he will likewise be a credit to his chosen profession. And so we hope it will soon be Doctor "Howie," serving humanity as he has served us and making it better even by his presence. 150I np I HENRY C. LE BER, B.S. St. Ann’s Academy INftthis keen-looking personage we have the living question mark of the class. A boy in years, he has the boyish hobby of inquisitiveness, and what?, why?, and when?, were continually on his lips. Pessimistic and optimistic in the same breath, he often propounded kaleidoscopic ideas, new and startling, which poured forrh from his ready tongue to bewilder and give rise among us to much spirited discussion. We would think that we knew our matter, only to have Henry propose an unforeseen and unanswerable difficulty. Although Henry has not the build of an athlete, he was forever going into the gymnasium. If constant exercise gives rise to permanent beneficial change, in physical structure he should be in the best of condition, particularly with respect to aquatic sports. For during his free periods he was usually to be found in the tank We arc sure that the inquiring spirit thar has made him such a good student at Fordham will stand him in good stead in his efforts to solve the problems with which he may be faced in later life.JOSEPH A.

Yes, he dresses very neatly as one cannot help hut suppose from a glance at his picture. Meticulous almost in the extreme, his sartorial splendor, especially the artistic arrangement of his tie, is known the length and breadth of the campus. While his neatness and manners were proverbial, his ability as a student was recognized by all. His standing in the sciences particularly was so high that he was deemed competent co act as student instructor of physics during his last year. In this capacity, “Joe” helped many a Sophomore to clearly understand a difficult experiment. From Fordham, ‘ Joe” will go to medical school.

Let us assure her that the presence of this, her favorite son, in our midst has gone a long way towards bringing about the true feeling of good fellowship which prevails among us. Wherever “Al” goes, such sentiment is hound to exist, for with his happy personality and never-failing smile in the vicinity, nothing but harmony can dc present. In social activities, “Al” also shone, and no aliair on the West side of the Hudson was considered successful unless graced by his presence.

"Hy‘ "Lewy” Dc Witt Clinton High School Mendel Club, 2. IT has been said by those, of course, who do not live in it, that the Borough of the Bronx may be likened to an imagined city of unbuned dead; but in our opinion there is at least one resident of the Bronx who bears no trace of his habitation about his person, and he is our classmate and friend, Hvman H. Levine, for throughout his years in our midst he proved himself to be very much alive both physically and mentally. To demonstrate the latter, "Hy” enjoyed a very creditable ranking in his studies and maintained such a generally good average that many of us would have done well to emulate it. And "Hy" was by no stretch of the imagination a grind. He was, in fact, merely one of those fellows who go to bed with the intention of rising early in the morning to do their work; and best of all, he was one of the few who really realize their intention when early morning is at hand! Such determination surely bespeaks a man of character. 154PHILIP LAWRENCE LIEBL, A.B. “Phil” "Littlb Phil” Brooklyn Prep Parthetr.au Sodality, 1,2, 3. 4; Varsity Football, 1; Varsity Baseball, 2, 3. 4; Freshman Football; Freshman Baseball PHIL” came to Fordham from Brooklyn Prep where he had accumulated a wealth of athletic honors both as an all-scholastic halfback and a stellar catcher. Immediately upon entering Fordham he joined the Freshman Football Squad and won his numerals. In the spring, as catcher on the invincible Frosh ball club, he once again proved his worth. In Sophomore, “Phil” was headed towards success on the Varsity eleven when he received injuries which curtailed his career as a football player. This misfortune, however, did not affect "Phil s” skill as a catcher, for in that same year his ability won him a regular post on the nine. That he was eminently successful is shown by the fact that he won his letter in this sport three times. To us “Phil” is more than an athlete, he is one of the best friends we have made at college, lie is, moreover, nor only our friend, but on account of his pleasing jxrr-sonalitv and appealing sense of humor, is affectionately “Phil” to everyone. 155JAMES F.

JIM” is one of the luckiest fellows in the world—ever going about with a smile on his face and diligently shunning any worries whatever that might tend to diminish it. He has been with us for four years now, and we've never known him to be other than cheerful and merry. Nothing seemed to bother him and he cook things philosophically, asking no favors of anyone. On occasions, "Jim” showed himself to be quite an orator. This ability of his was manifested particularly in the public-speaking classes in Freshman, where "Jim” was at his best. Lloqucncc seemed natural to him and he was one of the outstanding exponents of forensic speech in the class. The Council of Debate lost an invaluable representative when "Jim” did nor seek membership in it. In truth, "Jim’s” analytical, nimble brain as well as his impressive flow of language would have been to the debating teams what shock troops arc to an army. Law, we are informed, will be "Jim’s” future study. May he find in it all the happiness which conies from an aptly chosen vocation.

He was wont to speed to school daily on a dashing, dcath-dcfving motorcycle which would deliver him in our midst just a moment before the last bell. The sound of "Happy's" trusty steed was audible from afar, but whatever noise it made was entirely agreeable, for then we knew chat "Phil's " cheerful smile would soon be with us. After class, however, Felix would compensate for the noise of the motorcycle with the sweet tones of the clarinet. During his four years at college he was a member of Fordham's orchestra and band, and with both these organizations participated in many a concert. But his classmates will remember him best as a scholar. Philosophical disputations were mere incidents; chemical formulae, only child’s play for Phil." He always completed his academic duties with a thoroughness and perseverance that astounded those who observed him. For a character such as "Phil's" we do not merely predict success in the field of medicine, but rest certain that he will be numbered among the leaders of that profession. 157JOHN H. LOW, B.S.

"Hatch’s” homecoming is the signal for a frantic rush on the parr of the younger set to procure a replica of the article of apparel he happens to Ik featuring at the time. In Freshman, "Hatch" manifested a great interest in things musical; first joining the band and later transferring his allegiance to the more formal rehearsals of the Glee Club wherein he has since held forth. In Junior, John heeded the call of the Marquis of Quccnsbcrry and enrolled in the ranks of the "cauliflower" industry via the boxing team. "Hatch" is the possessor of a flashing left hand and when he slipped into his famous crouch the opponent had strong reasons to believe himself v.-orking in a glove factory.

For "Luke" was the most accurate joker in our class; no detail was ever slighted that would serve to heighten the effeer of his yarn. It was as a joker that wc knew "Luke” best; a joker whose fund of stories was inexhaustible. Many a dismal lunch hour was lightened by his )ocularlv learned discourses shared by "Joe" Moore.

He has a choice sense of humor and can immediately detect and appreciate it in others. John was prone to worry when he did nor receive his full quota of mail each week from his male and other friends, but this did not happen often as these friends seldom forgot him. "Mac" liked New’ York City, and no doubt that, together with his respect for her teachings, is the reason why he chose Fordham as the most suitable source of higher education. His knowledge of what takes place in the "big city" surpasses that of the newspapers, and though it may not be of the same kind it is far more interesting. No one need fear that "Mac" will not be successful when he enters the legal profession a few years hence, for he has the qualities above those that arc essential in that field and is sure to be more than "just another lawyer."

He goes his way smoothly, calmly and with dignity. He is sure to be present at all the big athletic events and social gatherings.

"Gene,” as captain of the tennis team for three years, an acknowledged authority in all branches of chemistry, a keen student of philosophy, an ardent seismologist, a |udgc of good musical comedies and their casts, has surely fulfilled the ideal of Socrates. Even with all his numerous activities he found time to become an instructor in chemistry and don the famous white coat. Dr. Bacharach will surely have him next year, as "Mac” plans to take an M.S. in chemistry. A classmate of "Vinnic" Richards while in Fordham Prep he certainly strove with him to bring Fordham's name to the fore in the tennis world. To say that "Mac” is affable is to put things too mildly; to say that he is serious, and to predict success in his more mature days, is merely reasonable. As the years roll on, the memories of "Mac” on the court, in the laboratory, or as a social being, will not soon pass away. mm 163JOHN T. McCORMICK, A.B. Jack" "John I."

JOHN is endowed with a keen sense of humor and, accordingly, an astounding ability for chasing the blues. Greater even than his foregoing gifts was his singing. For what other talent could possibly surpass that of a voice like John McCormick’s? His near namesake indeed could well be proud of our John who was ever present at Glee Club concerts, including the exclusive Intercollegiate Contest. The Council of Debate, of which John was a most active member, quickly recognized his forensic ability and elected him an officer of the club. So wc find that his sense of humor could not have hindered his logic but must truly have furthered it. During all his three years we could not mention a Ford ham affair at which John was nor a participant. Proms and concerts we expected them of him. But he did not scop there, for his loyalty to the athletic teams often prompted him to be present at out-of-town games.

When words came from his lips they readily gained respectful attention. Wisdom Mowed when John spoke and all were usually prudent enough to obtain their share. In years John is older than most of us. In his tales of across-the-seas he is unique among us. Sometimes he told stories of other doughboys, vet rarely did he recount his own experiences with the A. E. F. in France. But much that remains unsaid is understood if he was as soldierly then as he was scholarly here at Fordham, for John is indeed an exemplar of the true scholar. What- 8ever he undertakes is always finished with that little bit of extra proficiency that counts for so much.

Of "Mack' we may truly say: "Still waters run deep.” Moreover, the marks attained by "Mack” in his intellectual pursuits aroused our wonder and our esteem. Snap questions, to date, failed to catch him napping—a quick start—a moment's silence and the question was answered to the accompaniment of relieved sighs. "Mack's" nonchalance in the perusal of the gruesome derails of dissection always impressed us, but we have long since learned to disregard that odd air of detachment. "Mack" has a keen intellect that can reason out knotty problems—correctly To those of us floundering in the maze of philosophy, the sight of "Mack" plowing steadily on was an encouragement and an incentive. "Mack" won countless friends with his quick smile and retained them by his personality. We're proud to be among that number, and as we sav "au revoir, ' we murmur, "Glad to have known vou, 'Mack'!"JOHN P. MADDEN, A.B 1928 MAROON Jack ' All Hallows Institute IN these times of prevailing similarity in human nature, it is refreshing to he privileged to associate with those who are somewhat different from the usual type. Of course, in endeavoring to he unique, many go ro the extreme and fall back into the classification of the monotonously ordinary. There are, however, others who while striving to he inconspicuous, nevertheless possess certain marked characteristics and tendencies which at once separate them from the ordinary type and make them well worth knowing. Just such a fellow is John. Naturally inclined to he rather reserved, it was only a few who came to know John as he really is—a congenial gentleman, lie is generously talented, being endowed with the gift of clear and forceful expression, a keen mind, and an unusually attractive personality. We predict for him a most successful career in law, his avowed profession in after life, and we congratulate him upon it—for we have indeed ample evidence of his fitness for it.CORNELIUS J.

Where but from the lips of our ubiquitous cheerleader and sometime movie actor, "Neal” Mahoney. Here wc have in one handsome personage, in addition to the accomplishments already enumerated, a vocalist extraordinary. In his Freshman year this smiling fellow assumed without a qualm the onerous duties of cheerleader; and so succeeded in organizing the cheering, that at the time of writing it bids fair to surpass our fondest dreams. "Neal” was nor content with spurring others on to greater effort, bur he himself entered the lists as a sprinter on the Varsity Track Team, and Fordham was the richer by a "ten-three" man. In between times we found Neal singing lustily as a member of the Glee Club. Wc knew "Neal" to be one of the quiet sort; one whose deeds spoke lar beyond his words; a man who did things and did not talk about them, and a man who will always find us "getting together in there” behind him. 17-4BERNARD.].

BARNEY,” as he is affectionately called, is always pleasant and has a gift of saying the proper thing at the right time. He is quiet, but in him it is a mcrir. His unobtrusive and unassuming manner won him a warm spot in the hearts of his classmates. Above all he was a resourceful student who could look any exam in the eye. From the very beginning of our class life, "Barney” proved himself to be a willing worker. Let his splendid management of the many dances conducted by the Class of 28 speak for itself. We must not overlook his sartorial splendor. No matter where he was, at work or at play, his apparel was always neat and conservative. Verily, Barney” had and has the ability to remain immaculate. We may say that with his natural ability and present popularity he is on the road to future success; and one thing is certain; “Barney” nas only friends in the Class of 28.“Marty “Tschaikowsky” Eastern District High School Band, 1,2. MARTY” boasts of one of the most popular seashore resorts as his home town. It is thronged with people on the oppressively hot days of summer; fairly exudes noise, merry-making and excitement, and finally can l c reached for a fare of five cents on either subway or elevated lines. What need to go further in an attempt to describe “Marty’s" native stamping ground—Coney Island? No doubt it was in the atmosphere of blaring drums, shrill music, piping horns, and nondescript noises, that there was imbued in “Marty" a passionate yearning to play a musical instrument, preferably in a band. Accordingly, when “Marty" saw the light of happy choice and journeyed up to Ford ham, his worth as a member of the Maroon Band was straightway recognized. Thereafter, “Marty" was one of the band's most reliable and valuable “old faithfuls “ To see him marching proudly and playing lustily before a big game was almost always a sure omen of impending victory for our teams.St. Peter's Prep.

UNLIKE all clever philosophers, we cannot dismiss an important subject with the trite phrase: "Man is a rational animal." To sec "Tubbv" is really to like him; to know him is sincerely to appreciate him. What matters a mortal stature when there corresponds an intellectual Colossus? With a high grade of student ability and a likablcncss manifested bv an equally high grade of popularity, "Tubby" won our esteem, overcoming even the inexplicable hostility displayed toward the natives of the rural and outlying districts, such as Jersey. Tubby’s” sartorial excellence won him wide recognition in the rustic circles and the more cosmopolitan precincts of the campus, though we fear our friend committed a serious "faux pas dc nabadasherie," when he appeared in self-asserting golf hose in lieu of the conventional socks. But that has long ago been forgotten in the soulful admiration of the subdued harmony of his scarfs and cravats. Rumor has it that "Tubby" will guide the destinies of a select few as a pedagogue.

Always jovial and agreeable he won an enviable place in the hearts of his classmates. His life at Fordham was such as we all wished ours to have been. Dedicated to service, he goes forth leaving no enemies but many friends. He takes with him one of the dearest possessions a man can recall—college days well lived. liven though he Idled his days with activities, which now seem innumerable, he had time to attend many of the social functions and keep well up in his studies.

SINCE George occupied a scat in the front of Senior Class, and was accordinglv raptly attentive, he became an accomplished psychologist, ethicist and historian. In spire of his weakness for intellectual pursuits, however, this brave knight from City Island found time to show his prowess on the gridiron to the detriment of many a foe. Quiet, with an cvcr-unrufllcd composure, his charming manner gained him numberless friends at Fordham. “Mark'' was famed for squeezing through the door at 8.59:59. Although our hero had difficulty in presenting hnnself for the first morning class, his prompt appearance at every function from the Prom to the Council of Debate marked him as a man of affairs a campus "somebody." Between classes he could invariably be found surrounded by a throng, as his opinion on matters of importance were as weighty as that of the renowned Oracle at Delphi. Good luck, George?

TT was our misfortune that "Joe" did not join our ranks till Sophomore year, for his genial character soon made him a welcome classmate and he would have proved an invaluable acquisition in our stormy Freshman days. "Joe" has char very popular habit of smiling which would have served to quicken our morale. "Joe" is the possessor of an air of nonchalance that is very gratifying to behold. Wherever the winds oI fate may carry him, wc arc confident that this equanimity will soon accustom him to his surroundings. "Joe" also displayed surprisingly efficient athletic ability in view of the fact that he played Varsity Football for three years as well as engaging in Interclass Basketball. In the latter sport we were especially proud of him. The perfect ease and skill with which he maneuvered about the court gave his opponents naught but helpless consternation. To conclude, "Joe,” may life's bright sun shine on you always and may you play its game as fairly and as well as you did while at Fordham! 180 ... "Jimmy’’ "Bat" Stuyvcsanc High School 'Monthly,'" , 2, 3, 4; Boxing, 4. JIMMY" experienced his introduction to higher learning at Poly Tech; but not liking the particular brand of beakers and test tubes in use there, he decided after due consideration that a change of atmosphere and vocation were needed. Accordingly, Fordham and medicine were chosen to guide him rightly in the attainment of his proper goal in life. That "Jimmy" made his presence felt in and away from the college is not debatable. His dry wit, ditties and pleasing personality went hand in hand in making rhosc who knew him cherish his friendship all the more deeply. Not that our prospective physician lacked ability in the studies preparatory to this profession, but the commendable progress that "Jimmy" achieved on the business staff of the Monthly almost leads us to believe that he could conquer the business world rather handily. Though "Jimmy" is diminutive of stature he has ever tackled the biggest problems undauntedly, efficiently, successfully. In illustration ol his courage, hear ye: "Say.

HERE’S a quiet lad, for all the noise he makes while scoring "bull's-eyes" on the rifle range. "Ben" is a crack shot, and the favorable showing that rhe rifle team has made in the past was due in large measure to his experienced and unfailing eye. He's a quiet lad, we say, and many a time if not all the time he was found poring over his books to the steady burning of the midnighr oil, till the dawn came, and found him apparently fresh and eager to go through with a long and hard day’s work. "Ben's” proudest possession was a pipe, and as he went about pulling clouds of satisfaction we were prone to wish that we had his equanimity— though we did not envv ihim the type of weed that he inhaled. "Ben” claims that he is going to work for an M S. And why? Because he is going to try and enter medical school. We predict that he will make a name for himself in the future and that he will relieve rhe physical ills of many of his fellow-Mendelians who will ever recall him as a "lolly good fellow." 182wmwmmm YftrrVYn NICHOLAS K.

It is our private opinion that "Ed," having a penchant for traveling, simply could not resist the lure of Mr. Hedley's generosity. In September, 1924. "Eddie" entered Fordham and in two weeks became a true Fordham man both in spirit and ideals. Though not an athlete he contributed loudly to the Maroon's success on the athletic field. "Ed," moreover, became so imbued with the tenets of scholastic psychology and ethics rhat he not only grasped their principles but made them his rules of life. Hand in hand with his grasp of philosophy goes an extensive knowledge of chemistry and biology.

When tasks requiring physical prowess were to be performed, "Morrv" was generally called. And with him helping, success was assured! Likewise, when there was a difficult translation, or an involved chemistry or phvsics experiment that was not readily understood, Arthur was again consulted. "Oh, rhat s easy," he'd say, "It's |ust like this." And then he’d go on to clear up our difficulty. Nor were his fellow students alone in their recognition of Arthur’s scholastic ability. Just take up a copy of the college catalog, and there, under rhe list of official scholastic honors you will find the name of Arthur J. Morrealc.

In Sophomore, "Yinnie" was a tireless worker on the Vigilance Committee where his predatory eve and large frame did much to instil the virtue ol discretion in numerous warlike Freshmen.

His cranium is covered with a thatch which is sunset-like; his scholastic record shone rcsplcndcntly enough ro merit rhe descriptive term, and his voice possesses a priceless tone. "Ed" hails from Brooklyn, a handicap which he has incidentally overcome and which proved no obstacle to his determination to witness any and every contest at Fordham And not only was he a mere spectator but in some activities enjoyed active participation even impersonating a grandmother in the Freshman One Act Plav Contest.

Though a boarder the first cwo years, he became a commuter again alter his fanciful notion had proved an illusion.

Life in the city did not affect "Joe's'' appearance, acquired on the banks of the majestic Hudson. His genial smile was ever in evidence. Whether stevedored into subway trains, delayed on the Open Air Lines or confronted with some doubtful thesis, he never lost it. As a future medico, he steeped himself in the sciences, choosing to come to class even on Saturday afternoons. Physics, chemistry and biology all fell before the overwhelming assaults of "Joe's" studious charge. Though so earnest a student, "Joe" had time to liven up more than a few gatherings of the Coffee Pot Clan.

GEORGE is perhaps our most adept exponent of iliac current witticism that is usually expressed in the newlv-coincd term, "wisecrack." For four years his succinct remarks have been the basis ol an enduring cycle of catch-phrases. "Pip's’’ capacity for minute observation, second only to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous character, is reflected bv the accuracy with which he reproduces the mannerisms, speech and carriage of anyone who might meet his roving eye. George’s impersonations arc gems of exaggerated realism. The versatile "Pip" has moreover a keen interest in all forms of athletics and cavorts with favor around the initial sack in particular. Indeed, if memory does not fail. Captain "Pip’s" well-known Independents" were once the scourge of any ill-advised hurlcr delegated to ijucll those lusty hitters. Lest the rumor creep abroad that George’s activities arc principally extracurricular. we hasten to mention the ease with which "Pip" held his place among the leaders throughout his course.

His disposition is a delightful concoction of duty fulfilled and pleasure attained that has often served to make the plain fare of scholarship more palatable. Beneath the veil of good-fellowship, however, there lurks an abundance of that rare ingredient so essential to success, called perseverance. For though at first "Joe" came to the Councils of Debate armed with nothing but the willingness to learn, now, solely through his dogged tenacity of purpose, he leaves us an eloquent inoldcr of language and a sturdy guidepost on the road to truth.

PROPST, A B. JOE St. Mary’s Academy DURING our first two years there was something vaguely lacking in the Class of '28. In September of our Junior year, however, John came into our midst, and the void was filled. In '22 and 23, John had learned to sing the “Raw,'' but a certain influence, known only to John himself, had prompted him to leave college for two years. We are grateful for the intangible influence—whatever it might have been— for we surmise that it was through its agency that our class came to know John and appreciate his quiet, unassuming but very progressive ways. Few of us were aware of John’s athletic ability; we knew him only as the all-powerful custodian of “cuts’’; but while we were yet in the midst of our Prep days, John was winning ball games for the Frosh Team of '22. In September John will enter law school where his powers of adaptability will enable him to continue the success that has ahvavs been his. 204"Quattro" "Westchester" Stuyvesanr High School FRANK, embodied all the qualities which have been characteristic of Ford ham men in the past, namely, seriousness of mind and depth of thought which aspired to the highest ideals, and to which has been added an active interest in campus 1 ife athletic and otherwise. An excellent scientist and a deep student of philosophy, Frank has a faculty which we think prophesies success in after years. This faculty lies in his unwavering tenacity of purpose. Whether the path were smooth or stony, once he perceived his goal, Frank strode on, overcoming obstacles, brushing aside obstructions—never content to rest until his goal was reached. It is no wonder then, that we do nor hesitate so confidently to predict his success. •■eiCHARLES MULLIN QUINN, A.B.

When Charles smiles he is apparently William, and when William is solemn he is apparently Charles; so there we must let the identification rest. With many apologies should we he wrong we shall call this Quinn, Charles. Charles, or "Charlie,” native of Portland, Me., appeared in our ranks in Junior. Through some oversight he had languished for two years at St. Anselm's, but rectifying his mistake in time he finished his college work at Fordham. Combine a charming smile, attractively contrasting with a dignified manner, a kindly, irresistible optimism which finds expression in a cheerful word, and you have Charles Quinn. Incidentally, you have a few of the reasons for his well-deserved popularity. Charles is a devoted admirer of Edgar Allen Poe, and much of his time is spent, it is whispered, in the vicinity of the former dwelling of that versatile writer. "Charlie" intends to study medicine, and his hosts of friends heartily wish him success in his chosen profession. 206WILLIAM H. QUINN, A.B.

When the Iisr of unsolved mysteries is finally composed, that of "the two Quinns, we feel safe in predicting, will head the roll. Still, we have ir upon good authority that this Quinn is really William, or "Bill" as he is more widely known. At any rate, to become borcsomely logical, if the other Quinn is named Charles, this one must be "Bill." Should there be an error, however, we disclaim any responsibility in the matter. "Bill," like Charles, was happily transferred from St. Anselm’s and descended upon the college in Junior. His quiet, unobtrusive mien which ineffectual!v covered a deep fund of kindly humor, his willingness to recognize only the brighter side of things to the banishment of the gloomier, and his gcnerously-sympathctic nature-soon won for him the good will and friendship of his classmates. "Bill" purposes to study law, and if rhe good wishes of his friends have any influence he will be extremely successful in his preferred career. 207FLORFATING A. RADASSAO, B.S.

Recently, his phenomenal good luck seemed to have forsaken him. for just when rhe conductors on the railroad began to neglect collecting his ticket. “Raddys” travels ceased. ‘Peekskill,” alias the more familiar "Raddy,” docs not intend to end his education with his Ford ham days. Medicine is the further goal that he seeks. In his spare time, "Raddv" took himself off to the woods with a shotgun to do a little huntin’. He had a distinct leaning towards nature and was a skilled observer ol life among nature’s rustic inhabitants. To sum up "Raddy’s” description, nothing could be more fitting than this, "A gentleman, a hunter, and a good judge of the more potent waters.” 208 rA Fi iM MAX HENRY REIFF, B.S.

Now we hardly know where, when or how to begin a biography of either one of these men to the exclusion of the other. However, as we must make the attempt, we shall dwell upon the first half of the pair, namelv Max Rcirt. Tremont Avenue, to all appearances, was one of the most if not the most favored haunt for "Mac.” The reason why we have expressed our doubt upon this point is on account of "Mac's" liking for our own Palestra. At every opportunity, "Mac" was wont to work out for hours and hours on the basketball court. His specialty in this sport was one-handed shots from all possible angles. That these spectacular tries for the basket were often accurate may be gleaned from the confidence with which "Mac” would enunciate his motto for the occasion "Ten baskets or none!” With such well-grounded confidence as this a part of his make-up, who will deny "Mac” success? 209 Hr i[of r [Igdftj 4EISS m g I c - ANDREW JOSEPH REISINGER.

If "still waters run deep," as is generally believed, "Andy" musr be a bottomless well, or rather let us say a geyser, for when he periodically bursts forth into speech, his words arc as worthy of attention as the geyser's waters and just as powerful. "Andy" came to Fordham with a fine athletic record from Xavier. However, on his matriculation at college, he chose to confine his ciTorts, apart from indulgence in Freshman Baseball, to scholastic achievements, and proved en passant that he could be both athlete and scholar After seeing "Andy" cavort around center held for the Freshman team, wc wondered why he did not pursue varsity baseball laurels. Perhaps he pursued baseballs far enough—Fordham's center field is a deep one. A small but waxing interest in golf seems to be manifesting itself in "Andy," and wc have no doubt that a few years hence will find him numbered among those who spend week-ends hunring a golf ball in the wide open spaces and shooting under ninctv—sometimes. 210JOSEPH C.

You may rightly conclude, then, that the family tree of this gentleman, accomplished in the sciences and the arts, was not devoid of flourishing fruit. Not only did "Joe" show the way in the intellectual field hut he was never known to miss a game in any sporr, provided it were played within a three-hundred-and-fifty-milc radius.

He is pre-eminent in this, that he never i- mentioned his home town. We actually had to inquire before we found out where he lived! When a man from that village is so quiet and modest, then we believe that he has attained perfection as its greatest booster. His rcriccncc did not, however, prevent him from capably serving on the business staff of the Monthly or from attending many of Fordhain s games and social functions. But the greater part of his four years was spent in the ever-present laboratories. "Tom" was never so happy as when concocting some strange mixture or examining the vital organs of one of the lower animals. And yet this was as it should be, for in ' Tom" we have one of the future medicos of the class. That success will crown his efforts in medical school we have no doubt; that his patients will find in him a man to trust and to follow we arc equally certain. ■'W 1 saw l ILVINCENT N.

"From the time you are born till you ride in a hearse, there’s nothing so bad that it mightn't be worse" was his motto, and the various methods which he adopted in applying this adage to his own life were most amusing, yet instructive. When a teacher would assign more matter than we thought he should, "Vinny" would very appropriately and optimistically state that in a hundred years from now we would forget all about our present worries. If dancing were a major sport at Fordham, "Vinny" would have many an "F" to exhibit around the town. He was always a noticeable figure at a dance, and in our opinion the affairs would not have been such social successes as they were if "Vinny" and his cohorts had not attended. If cheerfulness and a good sense of humor will obtain success for anyone in this world, there can be no douhr about "Vinny’s” future. THOMAS F. ROONEY, A.B Immaculate Conception Sodality, 1,2, 3, 4; Council of Debate, 2. WHEN ■'Tom'' entered college he was all that his name implies—an exceedingly loyal member of the Emerald Isle—generous, good-natured and determined. 'four years later we behold the very same "Tom," still smiling, still good-natured and still with a good word for one and all, not forgetting the "old country." "Torn's" ambitions have always centered about two things in particular- baseball and cars. Every balmy spring would see "Tom's” prominent form striving to gam his coveted regular position on the class nine; and after practice, he could have been seen seated'behind the wheel of his car, and from the manner in which he made it step around one could get ample proof of that philosophical claim relative to the superiority of mind over matter. "Tom" was always quite a happy habitue of socials, and to his athletic prowess and social participation he added tfic rarity of a good scholastic standing,a combination which should bode very well for the future, whatever it may hold lor him MM "Pat" "Tom" Xavier High School ism ANTHONY JEROME ROSSI, A.B. “Tony" Fordham Preparatory School Immaculate Conception Sodality. 1,2. 3, 4: Freshman For ; Freshman Workshop. ANTHONY is the gentleman with the Napoleonic cast of countenance. He was - to be seen sometimes in a rather pensive mood, dreaming, perhaps, of future conquests and building his mythical kingdom in the illimitable spaces of the air. When brought back to the realities of earth by a word -and occasionally by something more —from a classmate, then his face would light up with a smile and a humorous twinkle would appear in his somber eves. Rarely was he out of sorts, as his inimitable cornet imitation readily bore witness. A faithful attendant at Sodality, "Tony" was also a model student. He did not spare himself in his choice of studies pre-medical subjects were his electives. At least, he wasted no effort in choosing the means proper to the goal he established for himself. When, however, some time hence, he will have the honor of being addressed as "Doctor," his personal sacrifices will seem to have been well worth while. 216 1 IIP It 1928 MAROON TUv B EDWARD FRANCIS RYAN, B.S.

On second thought, however, we must say that the majority of Brooklynites arc sceptical; ergo, "Eddie could not claim originality. Newtown High won the baseball championship when "E. F." caught for the team, so he packed his kit and came to Fordham to help Coach Coffey’s charges win renown. While his success on the diamond was hampered by a surplus of experienced regulars, no one can say that "Eddie" did not at least try—and not entirely in vain. Although "revenge is sweet" —and for assurance on this statement just ask “Eddie" nevertheless, we urge him to be merciful when he imparts knowledge to the "young uns." The teaching profession is his goal, and we assure you that he has all the attributes of a successful "prof." Commencement will take "Eddie" from us, but somehow we feel that he will be with us in spirit, for who can forger his racing down the path to catch the "El"?

What more could anyone wish? As star reserve quarterback on the football team and guardian of the hot corner for Coach Coffey ’s aggregation of all-stars, "Ed" set quite a record for future generations to endeavor to break. In the stalwart person of "Ed," Fordham, we believe, will send down .to Law-School a true student, possessing a keen analytical mind that can confidently dispose of an intricate problem in electricity or an obtuse question in philosoph with equal facility and surety. In addirion to being the fortunate possessor of these enviable attainments, "Ed" is the veritable personification of what a sincere, friendly, and acutely loyal son of Fordham should be. l bs name will be w-rittcn indelibly in our memories with the golden luster of his deeds. 218 d I rjTffffTTYYTTYYYYT EDWARD V.

But for all this, "F.d" found his greatest delight in speaking. No matter what the subject, the time or the place, he could be depended upon to say a few enlightening words.

He came with an enviable record from Regis, and no sooner had he appeared among us than we knew why his old schoolmates weresowildlycnthusiastic abouthim. Philosophy presented few troubles to Bill. How many times an intricate problem or a bit of subtle reasoning cleared under “Bill’s' masterful touch ! Nor was he lacking in those things that go to make up college life in its entirety. As manager of cross-country, he did much to further the cause of the fleeting “mercuries" of the Maroon. “Bill" is going out into the field of medicine: We know he will succeed we who have felt the encouraging shake of his hand; wc who have seen the calm look of his eve and sensed the steadiness of his purpose.

Ever since Freshman days he attended to his work faithfully, with the result that he won a high class standing, and his record is one of which anyone could be proud. As he was quiet and reserved, amiable and pleasant to his fellow students. “Sal" won many friends. This very reserve, we regret to say, successfully rhwarted our attempts to bring to the fore his other qualities. Nor could we determine to any appreciable extent his activity outside the classroom. It might suffice, however, to presume that the same thoroughness which characterized his classwork marked his other activities. If an agreeable disposition counts for anything, we know that “Sal" will gain friends in whatever calling he follows after graduation. And if persistence and effort constitute a measure of success, we feel confident that his measure will he a goodly one.  “Ed" ‘ Eddie" St. Peter's Preparatory School Immaculate Conception Sodality, I; Track, I. NOT long after “Ed's" arrival at Fordham, four years ago, the Class of '28 became acutely aware of the fact that in him was contained an almost unlimited supply of information relative to all automobiles in general and to the peculiar pranks and eccentricities of the Stutz car in particular. Road maps, under his interpretation, positively refused ro misdirect anyone, and the coast alone bounded his knowledge of quick routes and shortcuts. Worcester and Boston were almost as familiar to "Ed" as his native Jersey City, because each spring and fall our "Barney Oldfield" usually led the host of collegiate sport enthusiasts northward to cheer the Maroon in victor) or in defeat. Strange as it may seem, "Ed's" bosom companion throughout his four years here was "La" Geraghtv who is as earnestly enthusiastic about horses as "Ed" is about automobiles.

We watched this fair-haired lad, ever in the van of academic srrife, lay low the dread foe. calculus, we saw the tyrant, physics, on bended knee before him; we witnessed grim philosophy's obeisance to its conqueror. But not only for his ability as a student was "Adolph" endeared to the hearts of Fordhamites; his cheerful smile and helpful word made the road to learning easier to tread.

ED" was ever a true, loyal son of Ford ham, and many were the happy hours he spent in her proximity. As a classmate, "Ed" very nearly approached the ideal in that he tempered philosophical discussion with a flow of lightsome chatter, and so maintained that philosophy of life known as the Via Media. "F. X." drew to himself innumerable friends in consequence of a beaming personality imbedded in a sincerity and a frankness that arc emblematic of the real man. Never did a service for anyone lie too heavily upon "Ed's" shoulders, and never was a word of friendly greeting or encouragement disdained by our amiable "smiler." An insignificant sense of true values would one possess who would allow "Ed's" simplicity and generosity of nature to pass by unnoticed. In afrer years, when only recollection can rouse up rhe flickering flame of yesterday, "Ed" will be framed in that part of the glow- which is brightest. 226••Jof” Stuyvcsant High School SOMEWHERE, sometime, somebody has made a remark that has come down through the ages to the effect that "all the world loves (not a lover in this instance, but) a fat man. ” Now in " Joe" we dare to assert that, at lease in our opinion, he undoubtedly possesses the qualifications to be the living example of what the last three words in the quotation signify and arc meant co convey. Contrary to the lackadaisical nature rhat is usually attributed to fat men, this lad of generous girth is really quite clever; as a matter of fact, he succeeded in bagging more than rhe usual conservative number of papers marked "A" while he was in our midst. Strange as it may seem, we arc inclined to think that "Joe" has missed his vocation. Instead of choosing to be an eminent physician, he should have selected the field of politics through which to roain in afterlife.

There is really no need of proof to establish this, as most of us ourselves have seen him laughing his way about the campus in that inimitably likable manner of his, and have felt the urge to shake his hand in friendship. The Class of ’28 so cherished "Perk's" genial disposition as to elect him President in Freshman and Sophomore years, which means that for at least half of its college days it wanted him to be its leader. An excellent proof of our first statement, should you require one. "Perk,'' too, is a lover of music -particularly of the kind conjured upby "Curly" Seymour the human saxophone. Where this artist is, there is "Perk,” or vice versa.

What anxiety and momentary wrath he roused ! Bur, for all that, "Jim" was one of our lincst debaters; one whose appearance, voice, and cleverness on many occasions swayed audiences and judges; and on one notable but regrettably singular occasion pleased all of us with his first and last performance on Fordham's histrionic stage In fine, basketball, dance committees, debating society, class offices, social functions, and his consistently good work in class occupied most of his time with happy results—and revealed an admirable trait of character, namely, a whole-hearted devotion to any cause he espoused.

FRANK” may he described as one of the Old Guard, since it was at Fordham that he prepped for college and from Fordham lie has taken his degree. With the former fact vve arc satisfied; but without the latter our days would have been dull, indeed. For "Frank” laughed and sang and cheered us on through four long years. "Curly's” activities were many, but long will he be remembered for his song, for in this he was always a real source of pleasure. Harmony was ever a part of him. not only in music bur also in temperament and conduct. A "hop" without "Curly” would not have been a "hop,” for it was with the hushed tone of an orchestra, with dim lights mellowing the ballroom, that "Frank” was mosr at home. He of the golden voice will leave us on graduation day to go on his way in the world, but his personality will yet be with us, long after diplomas have fallen into dust and fond memory alone recalls the days with him at Fordham. 231EDWARD M.

President, 3 Maroon Staff, 4: Vigilance Committee, 2. QUIET and unpretentious in manner, meticulous and tasteful in dress, "Ed" proved himself to be at all times a conservative gentleman. In his Junior year his fellow "Nut meggers "recognized his capabilitiesand elected him to the Presidency of the Connecticut Club. The success of that worthy organiza tion during the past two years was due in great measure to "Ed's" untiring and unscllish efforts. But "Ed" was not so over-loyal to his native State as to confine all his attention to the afore mentioned club. During all his four years at college he was a most faithful member of the Parthcnian Sodality and of the Glee Club. As a host, "Ed" was perfection personified His room was ever a rendezvous for lonesome boarders and tired "day hops." Here they could find the very latest in radio entertainment and discuss affairs about the campus to their hearts’ content. When Ed" leaves the proverbial hallowed portals, lie intends roenrer the business world. We re sure that his abiiitv to make friends and his consistency will stand him in good stead no matter what branch of business lie mav choose. 232juni d. dnnniuiN, a.d. ■Jim" Manual Training High School hnmdftulate Conception Sodality, , 2, 3, 4; Council of Debate, 2, 3, 4: Mimes and Mu miners, I; Maroon Staff, 4. THE mantle of the forum fell in graceful folds about his shoulders; the boards of the theater willingly quaked 'ncath his masterful stride; the cinders of the track readily yielded to his conquering speed, but. alas! the toga irked him in time; the buskin proved too cramped, and the race too dull. Thus did 'Jim-' at length elect in Senior to tilt in the legal lists. One night in October, 1926, the Worcester folk had reason to thinkthat Elias had swooped down upon them in his fiery chariot; the Springfield gentry spoke simultaneously of the return of Paul Revere, Westchester County was rehaunted bv the headless horseman in fine, Bav Ridge reported “Jim' Sheerin's return in a steaming Buick from a Holy Cross-Fordham football tic. Now you might think from the foregoing that “Jim's' days at college were crowded with extracurricula activities and you would be correct. But “Jim" did not neglect his studies—far from it. His name invariably was numbered among those worthy of honorable mention for scholastic standing. 233BENJAMIN SHEIN, B.S. Ben Dc Witt Clinton High School Mendel Club. 1. FROM Dc Witt Clinton came this lad, and soon he made a name for himself among us. A bright and prompt student he was always on hand to receive of the wisdom of the gods, and it was an inspiring sight to see him attentively talcing in the words that fell from the lips of the professors. He v as a close friend of our Theodore Singer, and between them, no doubt, many a deep discussion led to the ascertainment of hidden truths. “Ben" will long be remembered with his partner for their cool, practical deliberations on the psychological problems that confronted them. We arc told that the burning of the midnight oil is no infrequent event in the life of Benjamin Shein; his record would point to that; and we doubt nor that his habits of industry so early encouraged will stand him in good stead in the future. “Ben ' plans to be a doctor of medicine. We wish him all success and look forward to the day when we shall see his name emblazoned on the list of those who arc mankind’s benefactors. 234MILTON C. SIMON, B.S. "Milt'' Elmira Academy Mendel Club, 2; Maroon Stuff, 4. FROM distant Elmira came this young man to partake of the learning of the ages at Fordham. He arrived with a good-natured smile, and through four years he was a constant cheerer of our gloomier moments. There was something in his charming and disarming look chat will never be forgotten by those who had the experience of coming in contact with him. "Milt" may come from upstate, but certainly he surpassed many a native son by his ability to get things done in a hurry. To see him setting out towards a definite goal and breaking down all obstacles before him one would imagine that he had been born and bred in the very heart of the hurly-burly and bustle of this great city. "Milt" made a great name for himself in his scientific studies. Patience and understanding, so essential to one probing the infinitesimal things of rhe universe, are his. With like energy he will go forth into the world and conquer new fields of service. 235 Ijrib-t THEODORE J. SINGER, B.S. 'Ted'’ De Witt Clinton High School Mendel Club, 2; French Club, 1,2,3, 4. HERE is truly a cause worthy of a greater pen. At the risk of being facetious we maintain that as a scholar' Ted " was truly a bear. Of course, he will deny that lie is anything more than a mediocre student. But in the lace of facts which he himself has time and time again furnished his denials must count for naught. Night after night found him at home busily and raptlv engaged in dissecting all sorts of peculiar specimens- -a great biologist in the making. In the persons of "Milt" Simon of Elmira and "Johnny" Sisk of Chicago "Teddy" believes that he has been privileged to meet the extremes of the Fast and the West. The fact that he should meet them at Fordham was ever a source of pleasure to him. Not that wc have adequate! summed up "Ted" as he was at college, but we hope that for their edification his future pupils may have the opportunity of reading this. 236 I A m m JAMES P.

TWENTY-TWO years ago a great boon was conferred on the then-unknown Village of Norwood by the birth of a new star the great "Cv.” Eighteen years later the illustrious "J.

After he had established relations with the Class of 2$ our James proceeded to concocr a happy mixture of studies and social activities. In Sophomore his talents as a leader were recognized when he was chosen President of the Mendel Club. It was then that he revolutionized the world of science by his momentous treatise on yellow fever. In the realm of music, James P. was not only a leading baritone of the Glee Club, but in addition he organized the "Tinsmiths.’’ and from then on there was no rest for rhe weary in St. John's Hall.

In this class vve unhesitatingly place Jim” who performed his tasks well, and who merits praise not only on that account hut also because of his unassuming manner. "Jim” was a member of the Council of Debate and of the Harvester Club. His untiring efforts in connection with the latter organization contributed largely to rhe success it enjoyed. And, too, Jim” is distinguished in yet another respect Jackson Heights is his home town. It was from this distant region that he daily wended his wav to Fordliam's halls of learning. Of his future aspirations little is known. For his modest demeanor would scarcely prompt him to voice his ambitions.

"Larry” was not one ro push his way to the fore and to strive to have his name emblazoned on the records of the Class of ’28. He was, on the contrary, of that sort which when a thing is done well derives immeasurable satisfaction from it because it is done well and seeks no further honor. Science always aroused a keen interest in "Larry" and chemistry in particular exerted a compelling attraction. Outside of the precincts of the classroom, "Larry" could very often be found on the handball courts. The same characteristic determination "Larry” manifested here, for he would practice until near perfection and as a result won many a game by a “dead” shot from some far-off corner. Medicine is "Larry's" intended profession. If it be true that sincerity and persistency are requisites of this career, then "Larry's" past should augur well for a brilliant future.CORNELIUS F.

THOSE who arc familiar with the annual One-Act Play Contest at Fordham, surely must be acquainted with "Neil." Early in Freshman he started writing plays for the Workshop and later for the Mimes and Mummers. Many of '‘Neil's” plays were entered in the contests, and although not always prize-winners were among the best of the evening. The Glee Club was another activity to which "Spill" gave much of his time. One could find him in attendance every rehearsal day, endeavoring to raise the standard of baritones. In short, "Spill" was a Fordham man, through and through. We are familiar with chose who knew "Neil" as a playwright and those who knew him as a singer, but we ourselves like to think of him above all as an eminent scholar, for in that light he revealed himself most strikingly to his classmates. "Neil's" furore, he himself maintains, lies in Chemical Engineering, and our heartiest wish is that he may he as successful in that vocation as he has been here at Fordham. 240ARTHUR.]. SPROULS, A.B.

A loyal product of St. Peter’s who lives up to the high standards of learning which that institution inculcates; a polished gentleman at case in anv gathering; shy and bashful in the midst of strangers, but companionable with those whom he knew—such is Artie." Catching the last train and taxi for class in the morning gave him such practice that he always managed to catch the rear bumper ol "Sonnv " Gerhard's car on its bi-weekly pilgrimage to New Rochelle. Bur. withal, Arthur was a good student and very popular as Treasurer of the New Jersey Club.

WHEN fate dealt all of us the hands which she intended us to play through life she gave “Buddy" rhe trumps in any game- -a pleasant smile, an amiable disposition that made friends for him in the college just as soon as he set foot on the campus, a rcadv wit which for all its sallies could nor conceal the mature depths of the inner man. "Bud" came to Fordham with a “rep” built up at Barnard of being the prep school’s star pitcher. As soon as the call lor candidates for the Freshman Team was issued he was among the many that responded, and it was his good fortune to twirl rhe cubs co many a victory on the diamond. His specialty in athletics, however, was swimming, and afrer practicing faithfully during Freshman year he became a member of the Varsity Squad. In anv walk of life we may look with confidence upon "Bud" to uphold the honor of the class, and with this assurance vve bid him a fond farewell. 242“Bert" Cathedral College Preparatory School Freshman Workshop; Ring Committee, 3. BERT" is a man of standards; and we make this assertion not on the grounds of sartorial splendor alone. There are, however, some who say that a man's habit of opinion and purpose will he reflected in his outer habiliments, and wc think that their judgment would be entirely vindicated by “Bert" Straub. Now we have always surmised that along with versatility in man there must go, according to the nature of things, a certain corresponding amount of inertia. To this we attribute “Bert's" indifference to organized activities at Fordham. But after four years of pleasant association wc realize that in a talented man Fordham spirit can manifest itself under circumstances that are not organized as well as those that arc. A man whose interests ramify as widely as do “Bert's" must be possessed of an adventurous spirit; and in his case all the enthusiastic friendliness and good fellowship that an adventurous spirit implies arc fully realized Wccnvy those whose paths in life may at some time intermingle with the course of "Bert's" career. 243ANTHON Y Z.

Each day that brought out test tubes, evil-smclling gases, culmrc media, frogs, cr al, caused him only satisfaction. A keen student of all the sciences, especially biology, he took all the courses possible in it during his four years at Fordham. Though beset by this inclination for hard study. "Tony” had time to become Secretary of the Mendel C lub in his Sophcmorc year and student instructor in biology-while in Senior. Although hailing from the wilds of Brooklyn he essayed the arduous subway trip to school, and arrived early enough to argue some subtle or disputed point before the gatherings in the Lunch Room. Quiet and reserved he was slow to make friends, vet, once made, they found him one to depend upon in any crisis. Medical School will soon welcome "Tony," and in the years to come we can sec nothing bur success for him, richly earned. 244 ?Pd' iiiuiir rTwmmrnmmwmt RAYMONDJ.

His winning smile stood out among a maze of faces, and one is inclined to think it will long he remembered. His accomplishments were varied and well known among all of us. He has a mind appreciative of wit and the brighter things and an insight that is disturbing in spite of the charm of its presentation. One might sav "Ray" was public-spirited, hut we would he endowing with a platitude wholly unbecoming an eager student of government and economics. Whoever has heard his campaign speeches and remarks at political dinners, amid the deafening applause his presence and charm evoked, cannot doubt that he is headed the long way South. Ir was well known and bruited about that ‘ Ray's” weakness was a decided inclination coward that all-pervading social bond—bridge. In fact, one might call it his forre. Still he was not lacking in other social and more amenable accomplishments. Fordham w ill hear one day of the Gentleman from New- York—Senator Raymond J. Sweeney. 245JOSEPH F. SWORDS, A.B. ■Joe" Brooklyn Preparatory School Immaculate Conception Sodality, 7,2,3, 4; Council of Debate, 2, 3- JOE" Swords is a man of many accomplishments, hut few of them have been exhibited for the appreciation of his associates and fellow classmates. As a student, "Joe" could never be accused of taking his studies too seriously but was content to win a respectable passing mark. When this was safely insured against any possibility of doubt, "Joe" believed in indulging himself to the extent of enjoying the many gayer sides of college life As a close companion of the famous ’ Dan" Sweeney of esteemed memory he will be remembered most. During Sophomore year, "Joe" and "Dan," as inseparable as sulphur and molasses, were always ready to render their services in making the class periods lively and lengthy. "Joe" will give a good account of himself in his chosen profession, and we know that he will make his fellow lawyers proud to know a Fordliam man. 246 "Charlie......Tim” Brooklyn Preparatory School Immaculate Conception Sodality, 1,2. 3, 4; Glee Club, 2, 3 Council of Debate, 2; Band, 7, 2, 3 Orchestra, 1, 2, 3; Track, 1, 2; Baseball, 1, 2, 3- ADD a zealous, enthusiastic nature to a shy, hesitant manner, and you have 71 "Charlie.” This description may seem paradoxical, but it is our opinion that "Charlie’s" hesitancy is merely the result of his inherent deliberateness, lor when lie shared in any undertaking, there was no one more eager than he to bring it to its proper and swift culmination. As a student, "Charlie" deserves no little praise; as an athlete, he gave his services to aid Fordham's baseball team in becoming representative among colleges; while on the cinder path his flcctncss carried him to success. A member of the Glee Club, his melodious baritone was often heard raised in song. It is highly probable (and this comes from an authentic source) that his voice and presence may in future grace the concert stage. If not, then "Charlie" will certainly be heard from in the courts, declaiming the cause of justice. For "Charlie" in his Senior year elected the study of law. Whatever career "Charlie" will finally pursue, success is guaranteed by his many qualifications. m m 247“Vince” "Vinnie" Xavier High School Immaculate Conception Sodality, 7, 2, 3, 4; Track, 7. LITTLE hut, oh mvl "Vince" is a qualified aspirant for the tirlc of “the mighty atom." He came from Xavier with a reputation earned hv making good a teacher's boast that Father Connell, S. J., could not “stump" him with any question from the Greek grammar which that learned Jesuit had written. Greek was so easy that fields of chemistry and physics, a trifle more difficult, soon had “Vinnie” at least interested in their intricacies. Yes, he's going to be a doctor and. well, we predict in all earnestness an excellent one. Even now "Vinnie” has a potent prescription for chasing the blues, via the piano. Our voting maestro has an orchestra of his own to which society nightly dances. Let Lopez, ct al, beware! His constant willingness to help those who bewailed strained relations with their studies and his ability to "agitate the ivories" won "Vinnie" a large corner in our hearts, f will Ik- a sad day, indeed, when "Tosri says. 'Good-bye'." Modify your ancestor's declaration by making : i t merely "au revoir!" "Vinnie." 248 5 JOSEPH F.

ALMOST anyone who, during the last four years, frequented the tennis courts of the university ought to be acquainted with Joe' Tubridv. For when "Joe” was not analyzing various economic theories or preparing philosophical dissertations he could invariably, we may sav, be found out on the courts. Through such regular practice, "Joe" improved his game amazingly, to such an extent, in fact, that he was often eager to make a little wager on the outcome of his more important matches. Lest we have given the impression that "Tub" devoted all his spare time to rennis we hasten to mention in general his participation in other activities. In addition to being a good student, "Joe" was always an active and ready worker in the various phases of college life; a fact which undeniably leads us to the conclusion that the nickname of "Semper Fidel is," which was bestowed upon him m prep, was by no means a misnomer; in fact, was all bur an inspiration.

IF height makes for recognition, that is, mental height as well as physical, “Ed” is on the road to prominence. During his four years at Regis Prep, this blushing youth from Kingsbridge excelled in both classwork and athletics. In the latter field, basketball was his favorite; indeed, ’t is bruited about that this Kingsbridge Flash" set many a heart astir by his sterling playing for the parish team. Besides, "Eddie" won his numerals on the Frosh five. Around “Ed," however, there seemed to hover a mystery. We could not fathom his frequent visits to Mr. St. Vincent's College. Of course, his sister attends that academy, but— we never solved our doubts. Bv the way, "Eddie" was the genuine Kodak devotee of the class. It was he who developed the famous snapshots of the “gang” in Breen's flivver and many other campus tintypes. We had intentions of printing a few of them, but, happily, only intentions.•Ed” Dickinson High School Immaculate Conception Sodality, 1, 2, 3, 4; “Monthly," 3, • , Mendel Club, 2, F or-President, 2; Track, 1,2. HOW well do wc recall those fine autumn days when "Ed” joined our illustrious class. Slowly but with certainty he found his wav up the path, and after a hasty glance at the buildings allowed a pleased smile to grace his countenance. Of course, it was no time until "Ed” had made himself popularly known in the class. His genial nature soon attracted his classmates and won him great favor with everyone. Always smiling and care-free, ready for whatever chance might offer, with a cheery word for all—thus did he win a place in the hearts of his fellows. Nothing whatever seemed to worry ' Ed.” Professors, books, classes and final examinations—all looked alike to him. How he did it was his own secret. The results were what wc expected. "Ed" is a good friend and chum; one whom wc shall miss very keenly. His upright character and manly disposition were inspirations to his friends and associates and will continue to be, long after his departure from Fordham to the field of medicine.

THOUGH a clever and imaginative playwright in his Freshman year, and a journalist of good taste and excellent expression in the weekly Ram, Frank’s specialties" did not end here, for who of his many friends will ever forget the relentlessness with which lie trounced all of us ar bridge and the alertness with which he guarded the costumes of the various Varsity plays? But even here his activity did not cease, for often during those four years Frank told us of some new flower he had unearthed; of some rare toad he had discovered in the distant marshes of New Jersey. Knowing all this we wondered how Frank found so much further time to devote to his studies that he was no less than our authority on classwork. Of course, we realized that in his studies as in everything else he worked because he liked the work. So is he happy, intelligent, sincere, and frank truly a well rounded character; one worthy of the manv friends he has made ar Ford ham. 252 RALPH is one of those auiet fellows who "gets there. ' This seems to say little, but if one knows Ralph as we know him it speaks volumes. Yes, volumes —be they chcmisrry or philosophy they and Ralph were well and advantageously acquainted with one another. Ralph was never obtrusive, and yet if one is fortunate enough to he near by he soon comes to admire the character of this smiling-cved fellow who knows the right formula or deftly refutes the subtlest objection. Ralph came to Fordham as so many other loyal sons have done from S:. benedict’s Prep, in New Jersey, and for the first year the hoarders numbered him in their midst. After his freshman year, however, Ralph determined to try the toils of commuting, and Fordham saw less of him—to her sorrow. It is no half-hearted prophecy but a prediction as sure and as dependable as Ralph himself that soon Success will number him in her foremost ranks, and we’ll proudly say: “I told you so.” St. Benedict's Preparatory School ' y fs St. John Bcrcbman's Society, I. RALPH X. VILLANOVA, B.S. ' A’illy” EDWARD J. VOGEL, A.B. “Eddie" Regis High School AS long as we have been enjoying the varying pleasures of student life, together -LX- with its occasional infelicities, we have been amazed ar the picture of “Eddie" getting things done. It is hard to recall any special instance when he was unwary enough to share in the ordinary adversities of a student's career. In short, we mean to say that “Eddie" is a thoroughly efficient worker and an admirable scholar. As an arhlcrc, “Eddie" would seem to fall short, perhaps, of the level of perfection which marked his scholastic attainments. The one reason for that is that Ford-ham has no crew. Consequently, “Eddie” missed his biggest chance as an athlete and Fordham lost a good oarsman. And this fact holds true lor more than rowing. At the risk of being banal we assert that "Eddie" will be a good arm on the ship of life. To those who may be thrown together in the same crew with him we have this to sav, that in addition to a strong arm "Eddie" has a big heart and a sharp mind. 254BOLESLAW V. WACLAWICZ, B.S. Billy” Bayonne High School Mendel Club, 2; Tennis, 1; Rifle Team, 3, 4. BAYONNE, that alinost-forgotten town way down in Jersey, deserves renown for claiming "Billy” as a resident. One would never consider him a college hoy; rather, a Wall Street broker, for “Billy” conversed in the telephonic language peculiar to such a personage, while his smile and laughing blue eyes alone would carry all before him. During "Billy's" four years at Fordham, one rhing he did learn as many will testify, reluctantly perhaps since it cost them a pretty penny to discover it, and that was exceptional proficiency as a cue arrist. When he wasn’t to be found in class, it was a safe bet that he was cither in the college poolroom or maneuvering over a plate of chow mien. The medical profession is to be congratulated upon numbering Billy” as a prospective member.

Smiling, debonair "Bill" was an invaluable second tenor in the Glee Club—an organization that counted heavily on his ready rendition of the high notes which would without expert sounding have undermined the club’s prestige. But singing was only one of "Bill's” many accomplishments as a glance at the list of activities heading this biography will verify. For instance, consider the qualities of leadership that "Bill" must possess in order to have won for himself such posts of responsibility as Circulation Manager of the Raw, and chairman of the Board of Directors of the Glee Club. The Maroon, too, appreciative of "Bill's" dependability, luckily secured his generous co-operation as a member of the Subscription Committee. "Bill's” charitable disposition, moreover, just had ro find concrete expression and, accordingly, we saw him sacrifice his time and labor as a lay inissioncr in the interests of the Harvester Club. We have it on good authority that "Bill” purposes taking up medicine as a career. May he attain the palm of success! 236YtYYYYYWYYYYyVYYYY THOMAS G. WASHINGTON, A B.

Throughout his college years, bending his every effort towards the fulfillment of his dream, he drank deeply of the wellsprings of culture. Thus prepared, he is now girt and ready to set forth into his homeland—the harbinger of the blessings of refinement. Gifted by nature with the indefinable power that makes a leader, "Tom" will be aided in his life work by a characteristic ability to speak humorously, appealingly, and convincingly. Believing in the ancicnr adage of the Greeks, he has housed his sound mind in a strong body—developed by the plasmic influence of athletics. A resourceful football player, he is also a good track man of the same caliber. We can never forgetyou, "Tom," with your happy air and your refreshing good humor.

DARK-SKINNED and fiery-eyed is this brilliant member of the college's dramatic society. As his clever acting deserved, he invariably won a "lead" in the shows from Freshman to Senior, and his personality never failed "to put it across” the footlights. Akin to his passionate fondness for the theater was his unique appreciation of literature and music. If the opus were written, his was the singular gift of finding in one small word a world of meaning; if it were an histrionic presentation, he was similarly affected by the slightest gesture; and in truth he was an interesting and entertaining conversationalist—when the mood was upon him. lie it noted, however, that his interest in the theater, in literature, and in music did not lure him from the requirements of his course at college. From his surprisingly vast source of energy he gave to his studies the same enthusiasm that elsewhere characterized him. Accordingly, it is with sincere regret that we see him leaving these halls to travel once more to far-away Cuba -and home. masBs SANDERS A.

ALTHOUGH it is irrefutably true that there have been innumerable songs of fair merit composed, the theme of which pertained to a sunny disposition, yet it is our hrm conviction chat composers have lacked then finest inspiration in not having had the good fortune to draw the basic source of their ideas from our "Sandy.” For when the storm clouds of oppressive examinations hovered menacingly over the region of Old Rose Hill or, in general, when any impending calamity whatsoever threatened wirh certainty to disturb the even tenor of our ways, "Sandy's” cheerful smile and hearty laugh contributed far more than their share in dispelling the universal gloom which suffused our faces and bestowed good cheer and courage upon hearts less doughty. “Sandy’s” future successes, phenomenal as vve lccl sure they will be, are unconditionally assured.

ONE of the most consistently adept exponents of the science of playing basketball cleverly was the incomparably nonchalant phlegmatic "Mauric” Woods. Our college career had not as yet gained its stride when our "Mauric" irremovably entrenched himself on the Varsity basketball squad. From the time of that sensational debut, up to and including the ’27-'28 season, many an ambitious forward of the opposition found, much to his chagrin and disappointment, that Maurie's" immediate purpose was to prevent him lrom caging more than a very conservative number of baskets; a purpose which was fulfilled with a thoroughness and dispatch that were good to sec. Reluctant as we arc ordinarily inclined to be about prophesying, we boldly dismiss our hesitancy in this case and assert, in imitation of the awe-inspiring intonations of the oracle at Delphi, that "Mauric’’ will bear off the palms of victory-in the trials of the future as readily as on the basketball court. 260HOWARD V.

IF you should board the ferry that chugs out of Fort Lee every morning you would see a stour little lad studying his philosophy. Thar's "Eddie"; and next to him sits Brother "Bill," also studiously engaged. At Xavier, “Ed’s” perseverance and conscientiousness were recognized as his outstanding qualities; and at Fordham he gave evidence of both. The end of his Frosh year saw him Secretary of the Immaculate Conception Sodality, a member of the Forum, and first tenor in the Glee Club. Indeed, we have it from Mr. Bailey, himself, that he blessed the day on which "Ed" joined the club. Why, “Ed" proved to be a veteran of two Intercollegiate Contests! "Ed" is also one of our budding lawyers and he is excellently fitted for that profession. Woe to the opponent who pits himself against Ed's" dogged spirit! “Ed" had so many friends that we often wondered what was so compelling about him. Sometimes we attributed it to his fatness—lor doesn't all the world love a fat man? But more often we believed it was his earnestness. 261WILLIAM J. ZIMMERMAN, A.B. "Wiff" "Bill" Xavier High School Immaculate Conception Sodality, j, 2, 3, 4; Glee Club, 2, 3, 4; Intercollegiate Contest, 3, 4. FROM New Jersey every morning, and few times if ever late was William’s record. Such intrepidity must be given notice before we even attempt to say any more. We could stop nerc and you would know just what type of man he is, but let us give vent to our enthusiasm. "WifF," as he is also known, came to us from Xavier—the school of future generals. At lirst sight we could not help marveling at his placidity, his perfect dress, and his pleasant smile. But after awhile we saw that these bespoke the real "Bill." Kind, cheerful and sympathetic, "Bill" soon became the high priest who was sought out by all in time of trouble and woe. Together with Brother "Ed" he was the mainstay of the Glee Club tenors And in that work, as in his studies, he gave himself so unstintingly that more than once he called forth our admiration for his resoluteness. "Bill" goes from Fordham with the priceless jewels of the classics and philosophy, but most of all he goes with the enviable good wishes of all who know him. Were we to eulogize each man in a single word we would say of one, "student"; of another, "genius," and of "Bill," "gentleman." 26?m ®hr (JUtimis (That Arr (irur . . .

It is in the last chapter that the plot is solved, the problem explained, and the characters sent on their nay with all their troubles adjusted. This is to be an exception to that rule in that the last chapter is also a prologue—the prologue to what vve hope will be many a glorious volume of service anil achievement in later life. A shelter is always abandoned with regret, but we abandon the shelter of Rose Hill with more than a sense of regret, for we feel that we arc leaving much more than a shelter. The phrase, "Alma Mater,” has often been challenged by moderns, but the members of the Class ol 1928 know that the word "Mater is used with reference to Fordham in its truest sense. Fordham has truly been our mother, nourishing us with the food of truth, caring for us with the care that sought both our material and eternal welfare. Let the last chapter begin at the beginning of the solution. For us, that was on September 19, 1927. That was the day on which we returned to Fordham from our last vacation from college. There ensued again the old pleasure of greeting those whom we had not seen since the preceding spring—a pleasure which seems to be peculiar to college life alone. We had come back a few days after the underclassmen had returned, and we were esteemed Seniors—just how esteemed remains to be seen. Our first class was a psychology class. We were introduced to the subject by the Reverend Father Murphy, S. J. To those who have studied under Father Murphy, a sufficient introduction; but to us who were meeting him for the first time, it w-as a revelation. Under his tutelage we were to investigate the phenomena of life and see how many ol our present-day thinkers regard it. The strictly rational method of attack, the reasonableness of it all, and the intense interest which we took in the sub)cct, made each class seem like five minutes rather than fifty. In ethics wc had the privilege of starting the year under the former Professor of Ethics—Reverend Father Barrett, S. J. His marvelous grasp of the subject and the charm and freshness of his presentation were to lure us on for all too short a time. At length his years of service weighed all too heavily upon his shoulders, and before many weeks had passed Father Barrett was forced to relinquish the chair of ethics on account of his failing health. His loss was a great one to the Class of 1928. The ethics course was then taken in hand bv Father Fasv, S. J., whose lectures were to charm us for rhe rest of the year That was the first time, incidentally, that the Class of 1928 had been united in one body, and the number of men who opened the year in the new Biology Building was well over two hundred. While this had the disadvantage under which every large group labors, it was a good influence in a way, for it enabled the members of the class to become more intimately acquainted through closer contact. A new course was opened to the Seniors in the Fall of 1927—a course in constitutional history. It was conducted by Mr. Samuel Telfair, Jr., and those who enrolled for it were not disappointed in the content or the method of the course. Again wc were confronted by our vast ignorance, and we set about remedying it as well as we could, with the advantage of having as a leader one who could ably direct us in our endeavors and make our task a pleasure. When the football season opened (our first under the rule of Major Cavanaugh), the Class of 1928 had its representatives on the field of battle. Harry Kloppcnburg, "Eddie" Rvan, "Artie" O'Connor, and George Markcv bore a great part of the burden of the game. It is a sad fact to us, however, that the beginning ol Fordham’s greatness should be deferred until the Class of 1928 will have departed, but it must 264be confessed that the season was far from a successful one as far as the Varsity was concerned. It was successful in this, however, that it showed that the Maroon knew how to take defeat as well as victory. The many Seniors who were members of the Glee Club had been sorry to hear that Mr. Kenneth Bailey, the original director of the Glee Club, had left Pordham, but we were overjoyed to learn that we were to have Mr Frederic Joslyn, formerly of the New England Conservatory of Music, as our new leader. Mr. Joslvn, besides being a noted teacher, also lias a fine reputation as a young baritone, and under his direction the club continued its progress. During the last week in October, the Seniors were privileged to have Father Richard B. Schmitt, S. J . conduct their retreat. The Senior retreat was particularly important since it was the last scholastic year that the men of 28 would as a bodv begin with a retreat. Let it suffice to say that the Senior retreat was one which will not easily be forgotten. Immediately following the retreat, the Varsity Play went into rehearsal. The vehicle selected was Lye con Bulwer's "Richelieu," and Mr. J. Gerard Cregan, '28, was finally selected to fill the title role When the play was presented. Mr. Cregan charmed all bv his masterly interpretation of the part. He was the sole representative of the Class of 1928 to have a prominent part in the production. On rhe evening of December 2d, there occurred an event which all the Seniors who were present will long remember. This was the first Senior Dance of the year. It was held at the Roosevelt Hotel on the first Friday evening in December, under the direction of Chairman Bernard Mallcn. Our first Senior Dance was one of those glamorous evenings of the kind known only to youth; of the kind that age loves to recall. Much has been written of the delights of the music, of the gaiety and laughter of youth on such occasions, but it is impossible to catch the spirit of it in words. It takes the combination of color, sound and movement to portray such an event, and it can be known only by experience—an experience which is all too rare. With the opening of the Varsity basketball season, the Seniors again did their best on the squad. Maurice Woods was one of the mainstays of the team, and his steady and brilliant guarding was one of the highlights of a very successful season. "Don" Forrester was the manager of the team, and the schedule which he helped to draw- up was one of the hardest in years, yet the team went through it with only one defeat, and that by a single point. There was renewed interest in the Council of Debate with the advent of the Class of 1928 to Senior. In the Spring of 1927 Mr. Victor J. Lugowski had been elected to the presidency of the council A debating schedule was soon drawn up and the Seniors were the anchor men on all the teams Messrs. Higgins, Sccry, Burns, Keegan and MeGroddv here the main burdens of the verbal tilts and were successful in most of them. A parish lecture group was organized in which there was much interest, and the Seniors rook active part in this work also. Besides the interest in the extra-curricular activities, increase in classwork continued. Psychology lured us ever onward, and Farher Murphy's lectures became events which we were very loath to miss. Indeed a "cut" in his subject was regarded as a real deprivation, to avoid which extraordinary measures were often resorted to. The course in pedagogy also proved very attractive, and that class was distinctive in having men present who had not registered for the course, and vet who could not resist the lure of the subject. Perhaps no other course at Feraham ever had the number of men interested in it that this one had. We shall never forget it. There were a few sighrs and events in the various classes which it might be well to set down in order that the memory cl them may not perish Who will ever forget the sight of a certain man, afar off :n the rear of the Senior classroom, with opera glasses glued to his eyes that lie might miss nothing of what was written on the 266 board? Who will ever forget the remark of Father Murphy ro the effeer rhar he was glad to see that the men were interested enough in psychology to study the intrinsic determinants by looking for them in the eyes of others? Who will ever forget the remark of a student who affirmed that he knew by experience that polygamy was bad? These arc a few of the occurrences which arc deserving of eternal remembrance, for they are the things that brought hearty peals of laughter to lighten the more serious rone of the class. Among the members of the class arc two men who have held the captaincy of their respective sports— Joe Farley, Captain of the Swimming Team, and Gene" McCauliff, Captain of Tennis. Both of these men have been extremely successful in intercollegiate competition, their defeats having been few and far between. The Editorships of rhe rwo organs of the college, the Raw and the Monthly, were held by Charles B. MeGroddy, Jr., and George L. Grainger, respectively. Mr. Grainger has become well known through the beauty and originality of his verse, while Mr. MeGroddy had been a member of the Ram staff for four years. Other members of the staff of the Monthly who came from the Senior Class were: "Dan" Currv, "Ed” Komora, "Ed ’ Nash, "Jo" Minetti, "Johnnie" Low, "Tom" Roch-ford, "Jimmie" Mazzariello and "Ed" Utkewicz, while through the columns of the Raw, Messrs. Keegan, Emanuel, Daley, Hein and Van Alcn helped to keep the college informed of what was going on. And now, even a last chapter must come to an end, that end may be sad or happy, but an end there must be. Thus as rhe spring approaches, we of rhe ( lass of 1928 arc beginning to reflect more often and more sadly on the fast-flying days that tell off the remainder of our college career. We cannot say much, for rhar which we would say would sound banal in words, hut we can feel, and that feeling is one of regret lor the end, one of tender memory for rhe four happy years thar we have spent on Old Rose Hill; one of devout thanks for the friends we have made and the advantages that we have had. All we can say is whar has been said by the classes that have preceded us, and we sav it sadly "Avc atque Vale, Fordham." £NTIA 'A  » 268 £jr(ttlass of 1323 OFFICERS Donald F. Connors W. Caswell Adams Raymond A. Hartioan Lawrence f. Brock President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer THIS is a history of men and affairs or, if you like, of men of affairs. This is a memoir of things unremembered. a sketch of things sketchy, a talc of all that may be told. This is a story more scanned than scanty and a record of reckon and wreck. For this is a history written in June of Juniors not so jejune. Sing, historic Clio, sing! "Junior, writes a former historian, “is the brightest of the bright college years." Junior," burst forth the five following historians, "is the brightest of the bright college years." Tradition is a grand thing, is it not? And so choruses this reverent scribe, "Junior is the brightest of the bright college years." Let those who come after, and write, go seek their own propaganda. IS “Brightest of the bright.’’ Um-m. Well, we re not just certain. Of course it all depends on how you like your college years. Some want them nice and shiny and some don’t. Now you take us, for example, we always wanted the brightest they had; like this, maybe............ "The Junior Class of Fordham University requests the honor of your presence at the Junior Promenade in the Grand Cascades of the Hotel Biltmore on the evening of January 27, 1928.'' Junior, you see, is not without its obligations, and the least of these is not the Prom. We had bowed to Mother Philosophy and quailed before old Doctor Science, we had taken possession of a brand new Biology Building whose imposing portals proclaimed us Juniors, we had even chosen from our numbers the officers of the Junior Class, good men all, and true. And still we had not yet a full realization of that high estate to which the joint labor of time and mind had summoned us: the role of Junior Philosopher. Then came—no, not the dawn just then, but eventually The Night and The Prom. “Johnny" Johnson and the Statlcr Pennsylvanians, the sybaritic spell of the Cascades, “Among My Souvenirs," the color of the music, the sound of the dance, and then some time between the first and last fantastic trip the light that we were Juniors now and Seniors soon to be! Mr. George L. O’Grady, General Chairman of the Junior Prom, and his ready henchmen — Bowe, Barritt, Walsh and Adams—had chosen and been chosen well and wisely. With the Juniorate year well on its scholastic way, we of 1929 bethought ourselves of class rings, those prophetic symbols of a fast-approaching graduation day. Once again the power of the ballot was called upon, and to Richard I. Nevin, Secretary of the Mimes and Mummers, was delegated the toil and the triumph of Chairman of the Ring Committee Then, if there were yet some doubts as to our final arrival among the great ones of Fordham, they were soon dispelled by the brilliant presence of the gold and garnet circles with which Cartier, Inc., and our efficient chairman soon contrived to supply us. We are thankful to both. Fall, Football and Fordham—long may these three be seen together! With the first tang of autumn began in earnest the gridiron regime of Major Cavanaugh at Fordham. We who had seen the first skirmishes of spring training under the stern, strong hand of the famous Major had known then that the Varsity of 1927 would be a fighting team, even when it was not a victorious one. The arduous season that followed showed that our presentiment had been all too true. Among the wearers of the Maroon moleskin there were several doughty members of the Junior Class. “Joe Walsh, of interclass basketball fame, staged a stellar comeback at right end after shaking off the effects of a last-season injury; “Johnny" Gripp, Paul C.onboy and Frank Baut were the Junior contributions to a great-hearted backficld, while “Tubby" Bcloin, “Al” Politis, Cannclla and Wazeter held the line for dear old Fordham. But what delighted the Junior heart more than ever was the news at the close of the season that our own strong and steady John Smith, the veteran linesman of three years' strife, had been rewarded with the captaincy of the next Maroon eleven. Much has been said and written already of the fruits of moral victory; this poor historian would attempt to add no more. He bids you await the Fall of 1928. The wintry-windcd days were times of activity for the third-year men in fields other than the white-striped green, however. When Coach Kclleher sounded the 272THE JUNIOR PROM COMMITTEE clarion cal! for court men, chc erstwhile Freshman wonders of J925 1926 responded to a man. The first team that trotted out to greet the whistle numbered four Juniors —Captain Frank Dougherty; the sharp-shooting guard. "Bo” Adams, as flashy a forward as ever performed on an intercollegiate court; "Nick" Landers, his dependable running mate, and big "Pop” Swccrman in the center berth And among the second team luminaries were Tomich and Tobianski, the Junior team champions, along with the brilliant Reardon, Politis and Scully. These were the noteworthy Junior contributions to the Eastern Intercollegiate Champions of 1927-1928. But notwithstanding the usual erv and hullabaloo about "overemphasis" and "leg scholars,” we of the Junior Class were not found wanting in those circles of Fordham endeavor which favor brain above brawn, for when the Mimes and Mummers brought to the Varsity stage on the evenings of December fourth and fifth. Sir Edward Lytton-Bulwcr s romantic drama ol the seventeenth century ("Richelieu"), three Junior thespians graced the footlights and deftly disclosed to critic and audience alike the deathless charm of that classic work. Dunstan C. Rooney gave a convincing portrayal of Count Barudas, the villainous conspirator, while Harold J. McAuley in the difficult role of Joseph, monastic confidant to the Cardinal, sparkled beside him. John K. Carroll left off his gems of poetry long enough to give a striking characterization of Louis the Thirteenth, a depicture second only to the masterly rendition of the title role. And again, in March, the Seventh Annual Varsity One-Act Play Contest found Junior well represented in all the departments of the dramatic tournament. Nor should one imagine rhar we were far behind in more stern and serious arts. Among the sleepless journalists of the campus weekly we boasted live Junior scribes —"Ed” Coan, the rising young humorist, "Bob" McCarron, the demon news editor, 273"Cas" Adams and ' Arty" Crozicr, sporr writers, with Lermhan. Whelan and Evans on the business end of the sheer. In the Council of Debate, "Ed" McNally, Editor-Elect of the 1929 Maroon, and McCarthy, McAulcv and Carroll, bright lights of the Fordham Monthly doubled in forensic brass to prove the spoken word as mighty as the written. Guiding the destinies of Fordham literature we had Joseph Hopkins as Assistant Editor of the Monthly, James Lawless as recorder of things in the realms of athletics, and Ward Clarke as censor of the young literary organization—the Fordham Quill Club. And lest we forget it was a Junior team that turned back a fast Freshman quintet to the tunc of 24—14, and thus carried off the coveted title of Intcrclass League Champions. Captain Walsh, "Johnny" Murphy, "Harry" Callahan, "Joe" Cobb, Morgan. Durante and Sansonc were not outdone by their brothers on the big team. In boxing we had "Jack” Dorsey, "Ray" Miller, "Tommy" Robinson and "Bib" Sansonc. In indoor track and cross-country, Captain Brennan, Durante and Connors earned rheir Ictrcrs; and in swimming, "Cas" Adams, "Arr" Crozicr and "Vic" Lachnicht upheld the Junior honor. Eves arc better than events. Perhaps that is why the anticipation of Junior is sweeter than the realization of Senior. We shall see. 274276 t CCUuui of 1330 OFFICERS Cornelius C. Wrfd Roger T. Scully Joseph S. Brown Howard A. Seitz President Vice-President Secretary Tre a Hirer WITH the reputation of having been the most gallant Freshman Class that ever attempted to appear nonchalant in that odd and foreign-looking thing called a skullcap, and in virtue of its "gracious gesture” in tendering to 29 a "smoker and banquet in recognition of rheir conquerors’ superior talents,” the Class of 1930 returned in the Fall of 1927 to gain for itscil the title of "most loyal in the interests of Fordham. ' Even as Freshmen, in the ubiquitous nature they revealed in their attendance at all Fordham affairs in large and representative numbers, the present recipients of our meager praise had given an indication of that unselfish spirit they were later to manifest as Sophomores. Soon after the 15. S. students had scored a novel victory in the annual class elections by "capturing" the two executive offices when overwhelming pluralities had carried into office Cornelius C. Weed as president, Roger T. Scully as vice-president, Joseph S. Brown as secretary, and Howard A. Seitz as treasurer, plans for a ON s TI A ETDoc 211Sophomore Loyalty Club were formulated. To Father Butcher, S.J., Student Counselor of the Sophomore Class, is owed the gratitude not only of 1930 but of all Ford-ham as well for his efforts in organizing the club. According to the original purpose Father Butcher outlined, the club was to be the nucleus of an all-university club anil the sponsor of divisional and metropolitan clubs,corresponding in function and motive to the various State clubs which have lately come into such animated existence on the campus. Among the Sophomores. 'Joe” Waters and Ed" Hughes (former possessors of the class executive powers during its Freshman year) were ardent co-operators with Father Butcher in this commendable project, not to omit mention of Morgan Anglim, and ■’Gene” Field, one of the Sophomore football managers. Received with enthusiasm during the height of the football season by all Sophomores, the Loyalty Club was able to reveal the first signs of its good work by presenting at each game, for the glory of the Maroon and the chagrin of the rivals, a lusty band of yearling rooters. Even Xenophon and Pliny themselves were wont to indulge in a little hyperbole now and then; and so who will censure us if we imagine that the polo grounds still re-echo the cheers of the Sophomores, given with such aplomb and nearness to say nothing of dispatch, as they followed the game from a choice section on the fifty-yard line-1 Aside from the function of supporting teams and other activities, the Sophomore Loyalty Club also enjoyed the distinction of acting as the chief instrument in the formation of a Sophomore SodaJity. Ever since its inception, the Sodality's meetings have been well attended, and the monthly Communion Masses, an exclusive and necessary adjunct to the Sodality's other purposes, have exercised a salutary influence among the Sophomores While the orators of the Loyalty Club were busy exhorting the Sophomores to ' get out and root for the team,” the athletes of 1930 were equally as well occupied in endeavoring to give their fellow Sophs something to cheer about. This little task was easily accomplished when there shone forth the scintillating performances of ' Herb” Ncilan, "Johnny” O'Shea, “Jerry” Deevev, Roger Scully, Ralph Hutchins, "Jack" La Borne, Cleveland and Honich. With the salubrious autumn weather beguiling the griddcrs” to put forth their best efforts, the Sophomores early engaged the l rosh under dog in their annual "Win and 13c Emancipated; Fail and Be Shackled” combats. Bill” Collins headed a strong Sophomore Vigilance Committee that ruled with an iron hand over the bv-no-means tremulous Freshmen. Aided bv the clicking of the International News Reel camera, the Sandows and Hackcnschmidts among the Sophomores pulled their Freshman adversaries over the line in a strenuous tug o war, thereby winning the first of the intcrclass contests to determine whether the Frosh should be freed from ihc customary rules imposed upon them. Inspired by rhe lofty aims of the Loyalty Club, a trio of Sophomores brought off the greatest sporting coup d'etat of the year when they gave the Fordham cheering stands a pleasant surprise at rhe Boston College game by proudly parading bclorc rhe spectators' delighted eyes an honest-to-goodness, real live mascot. "Jimmie” Ivers, "Howie” Seitz and “Dan' Kern comprised rhe enterprising trio who were responsible for the procuring and guardianship ol the Fordham ram one Rameses 278THE SOPHOMORE VIGILANCE COMMITTEE by name—which, adorned with neat Fordham blankets, they lead about in dignified, and somecimes sportive, procession at all the football games played in New York. The narrative centered about Rameses his origin, his brief but thrilling career, his dramatic escape and final demise—is a long and exciting one. Turning our gaze from the chill gridiron, where the curly-horned Rameses disported, Jet us ascend the path to the armory-like Gym where the dazzling passwork of the Fordham Varsity Five blinds all opposition. With many of last year's stars left and the strong Freshman wonders of the 1929 class intact. Coach Kelleher was in possession of a formidable team on which to base his hopes for another championship. The Sophomores, however, were not to be entirely ignored, and Edwards, Ncilan and Anglim gave positive evidence by their retention on such a squad that the reputation they made on the last year's Freshman quintet was well deserved. Deserting for awhile the fields o 1 athletic endeavor, let us view those other activities at Fordham which have so long ornamented her name. The Sophomores outnumbered every other class in representation in the Mimes and Mummers' pre-Christmas production "Richelieu." John P. King as the dashing Chevalier dt Man prat, Alfred T. Kirchner as Hugi et, who bowed too low," Bernard McKcrnan as Francois, the "mail of men," the page to Richelieu, Francis P Kenny as the Bastile governor of ironbound integrity, and Andrew F. Quinn as Gaston, Duke of Orleans, were an assemblage of Sophomore actors whose assignments to these leading roles marked them as thespians of distinctive caliber. Philip H. Hollenbach's character impersonation of the Steurde Beringhen, a man filled with a sublime pate," revealed him as a finished and versatile actor executing a role upon which so much depended for relief from dramatic tension. Other Sophomores who complete this 279splendid array of talent were Howard Seitz. Daniel J. Ahearn, William Collins, Paul McGlonc, George Smith and Charles Missack. Due honor having been paid to Melpomene (or is it Thalia?), let us hasten to rhe shrines of Clio and Erato and Polyhymnia—the three muses who, if we are pagan enough at heart to believe it, preside over the destinies of the Fordham weekly-chronicle the Ram; and the very literary periodical—the Fordham Monthly. On the staff of the Ram the Class of 1930 was capably represented by those demon reporters, I vers, I.vnch, Kern, McCue. Connolly, Hollenbach, Howard. Quinn, Carroll, Calnan, Reilly and Reardon, and bv those two worthy assistants of the Business and Circulation Managers, Seitz and Missack. On the Monthly, John V. Walsh confirmed his Freshman successes by his copious reviews of current plays, chiefly his covering of Eva Lc Gallicnnc’s Civic Repertory offerings, and by his always refreshing and stimulating contributions on arc, poetry, and literature. William R White and Francis X. Connolly complete a trio of Sophomore writers of enviable service to the Monthly. Meantime, the activities of the other sports, equally as popular as football and basketball, demand our attention. The heart of 'Jake" Weber has been lightened by the response given to the clarion call of the indoor boards by Calnan, Denzer, Collins, Manchini and Hatch—a formidable group who can match strides with the best m intercollegiate competition. “Berme” McKcrnan, "Neil’ Weed. “Ed” McGrath, Plunkett, Lyttlc and Eddie” Hughes played an unquestionably necessary and important part in the Varsity's string of swimming victories this year when three straight wins were scored before the mermen bowed to Lafayette. The Sophomores should have full reason for pride in the victories of the R. O. T. C. rifle team with Captain Kern and his contingent of sharpshooters, including Baker, Schaeffer and Nullmeyer of '30, winning matches consistently and convincingly. The rifle team met such strong units as Georgetown, Penn State, Kansas and Rhode Island Stare colleges. In the Glee Club, from “Phil” Hollenbach's well cultivated baritone, “Bill” Collins' sonorous second bass, and “Charlie” Missack s and "Howie" Seitz's sweet tenors, one might easily form a reputable Sophomore quartet. Howard Seitz fills the office of a member of the Board of Directors, and "Phil" Hollenbach acts as a very fine press agent, invariably reporting the activities of the Glee Club in the Ram. In retrospection, we perceive naught but an abundant and prolific field, sown with the loyal and unselfish exploits of the Sophomores. We see being gathered a golden harvest of indelible examples and fine precedents awaiting permanency to seek their place in tradition. With Horace, the class of 1930 may freely say, "Exegt monumentum atre ptrennius. 280282OFFICERS William J. McMahon Raymond T. Hurley President Vice-President Edward F. Ricca William Y. O’Beirni; Secretary Treasurer EARLY ill ihc morning of September 14. 1927. a youthful army of knowledge-seekers straggled through the gates of Fordham and pursued its course over her hallowed soil. From all quarters came fresh recruits, and the Class of '31, the largest Freshman class in Fordham's history, was formed. Of varied personnel was this Freshman army composed, for some men marched about with heads held high, casting supercilious looks at their traditional superiors, while others marched in expectation and still others in fear and trembling. u At length it reached its destination, this army of conquering heroes, and the time-honored walls of the theater must have gazed in wonderment upon their numbers. Some order arose out of chaos, and when Reverend Father Deane had marshaled this nondescript army into classes, it was allowed to break ranks and wander about, greeting here and there a friend, and forming half unwittingly, perhaps, first impressions of Fordham. if fg» 2S3 Eleven o’clock found them again in the theater in accordance with their orders. This second session gave rise to much speculation, for the Sophomore president, in an eloquent address, went to great lengths to explain that the Freshman-Sophomore rivalry, whose only aim was to assist the lowly Frosh in absorbing true Fordham spirit, should be taken in the spirit of friendly fun; that the Sophomores looked upon the Frosh as young brothers who needed a guiding hand which they were very willing to lend. Joy filled the hearts of the more combative Freshmen. For what could this long dissertation on brotherly love mean, except that the “Big Brothers' had determined upon a strenuous process of inoculation with “Fordham spirit"? And what more could they ask than a chance to prove their mettle against their natural rivals? There followed short addresses by moderators and officers of the various organizations in the college who made known rhe ample opportunities given the Freshman to pursue his favorite avocation. The second day saw the new men striving valiantly to appear at home in the mysteries of college classes, college teachers, and "cuts. " No longer, however, were the haughty Frosh to gaze with unconcerned air on eager Sophs, for the right to command, which years of tradition have given to the Sophomore, soon made itself evident. Marched upon rhe stage in the theater like sheep to the slaughter, the hapless Frosh in silent protest received the hated caps and rics, symbols of their servitude, and the maroon-bound book of “Do s and Dont's” the precepts of the master to his slave. On leaving the theater in childlike meekness, the Frosh were pounced upon by waiting "vigilantes," and with trousers rolled to the knees were forced to "lock-step it" down the path, the while giving plaintive voice to the fact that the Class of ‘31 badly wanted milk. Bur wait! a rav of hope. The Freshmen may strike off these chains of bondage if only they may with Zeus' aid defeat their overlords in two out of three athletic events. The tug-of-war resulted in overwhelming defeat for the Frosh, and gloom engulfed the cohorts of '31. But a victory in the swimming meet soon restored smiles of confidence, and the boxing bouts were eagerly awaited. However, after a riotous march across Fordham Road to the accompaniment of the band, and after serenading the Concourse promcnadcrs with songs and cheers, rhe Frosh rerurned to rhe theater only ro forfeit the boxing march in some rather inexplicable manner. The bonds of servitude were on to srav! That night, moreover, brought Major Frank Cavanaugh's first address to Ford-ham students, urging them to give him and his team their moral support, praising and encouraging the spirit of the college. It is one of the boasts of the Class of '31 that simultaneously with its advent to Fordham, came Major Frank Cavanaugh as Varsity football coach. Time went on, and the representatives from many preps and high schools began to lose their identity in the general term Fordham Freshmen. October brought rhe first football game and with it the customary Freshman -Sophomore Rush between the 284 OFFICERS OF THE FRESHMAN FORIJM halves. But although the Frosh proudly marched about rhe field in open challenge to their foe, rhe Sophomore cohorts failed to appear The somewhat unsatisfactory excuse that class rushes were prohibited by the Dean was later offered as an explanation of this hitherto unprecedented conduct. Football will always bring to the Class of '31 memories of its great representative team which established a record to which future teams may well aspire—undefeated, untied and unscored on! Almost as noteworthy as its record is the fact that it boasted no individual star; it was a team of eleven men playing as a unit with a second team in reserve almosr as good as the first. Who can doubt that the Class of '31 will provide us share of Varsity material in the next few years? The anticipation of the Christmas holidays brought with it also the election of officers, delayed in order that the Frosh might become better acquainted and better able to choose capable leaders. The result of the elections more than justified the delay. Mr. McMahon was elected president; Mr. Hurley, vice-president; Mr. Ricca, secretary, and Mr O'Bcirne, treasurer—all wise and efficient officers. Nor was the Class of ’31 outdone when the caging of a foul or a long shot from the basketball court brought cheers from crowds in the "gym." It boasted of a team defeated only twice—once at the hands of New’town High. P. S. A. L. champions, and again at those of Xavier, a team which bids fair to go through the season undefeated. .With men like Zilcski, Mciscl, Wisnewski, Stephens and Marchinik the honor of "31 on the court was safely and icalouslv guarded In the field of histrionic endeavor, the Class of "31 may well hold its head high, for with several of its members in lesser characterizations, the feminine lead" in FIA ET£)0( 285the Varsity play "Richelieu." was awarded to a Freshman—Joseph J () Donohue. As for literature, 31 boasted Richard J. Burke a consistent contributor to the Monthly. The Freshman Swimming Team, organized for the first time by the Class of '30, found a worthy successor in the Class of 31. Five victories and one lone defeat gave ir a splendid record, and with Winters, Melville, Harzmeyer, Dolan and Finnegan the laurels of 31 at Father Neptune's sport were many. On the Rifle Team, the Class of ’31 was represented bv two men—Porcclh and Edge—and in Track, by a Freshman Relay Team which placed second in the Milrosc A. A. Meet. In Debating, the Freshman Forum proved well capable of raising the standard of victory. Five debates were arranged with Freshman teams of other colleges and universities. O'Donnell, Burke, Lane, Scioko, Prvor, Hurley and Dundshuh contributed their share to the brilliant triumphs. "Time on fleeting wings has passed, and spring is near at hand." Soon the Frosh will strive for prestige on the diamond, and soon the Freshman year will be a memory. It is with mixed feelings of regret and satisfaction at a task well done that we leave behind us our Freshman year.

Moreover, at all meetings called by Father McDonald, the general director, Fordham has always been proud of her representation. The combined clubs of the local Catholic colleges each vear run a Tea Dance, the proceeds of which are donated to the Foreign Missions. This affair has become a very pleasant and charitable tradition. On the last two occasions of this annual dance, social and financial success accrued to it owing in large measure to the fact that the chairmanship was bestowed on Fordham men. Mr. F Keats Boyd, the Harvester Club President of '27. was the first chairman, and his successor, Francis A. Lawless, in '28 followed his predecessor's example. In the last year, the membership of the club has greatly increased and among all the classes there now exists a widespread interest in irs activities. Such an organization should justly be a blessed and flourishing one; and it is the hope of its Moderator, Father Hanrahan, and President Lawless, that in succeeding years the attractive Harvester Pin will adorn the waistcoats of the majority of Fordham students. 291(ibr Binmtf br foul £ nrirtu OFFICERS Richard J.

The highlights were few, and yet they indicated a continuous trend toward new artistic standards which at no time fell behind those of previous years. Judged solely from the standpoint of quantity, this past season of the Glee Club may be recorded in Fordham annals as negligible; yet from the standpoint of quality, its creative musical successes gave the organization an even firmer stability. Nor that the founders of the Glee Club at Fordham tailed to establish it as lasting, for Father James T. Haves, S.J., and Mr W Kenneth Bailey began that which since its inauguration became a source of pride to Fordham Univcrsitx Always truly representative of its Alma Mater, the Glee Club has never tailed on repeated occasions tS ] 293U) add new laurels co her crown. Vet with the beginning ol the scholastic year in September, 1927. hearts were not so glad and skies were not so bright for those interested in the Glee Club. Each of the recent graduations at the University had taken its toll from the Glee Club's membership, but when Commencement Day, 1927, came, the last of the charter members left the choristers’ ranks, and their loss was keenly felt. Added to the absence of rhese former mainstays of the club was the immeasurable loss of the man who had directed its musical interests since its inception Mr. Bailey. True, each succeeding vear had brought new members (and these well qualified} to the choral ranks; still, n was impossible to forget those who in the beginning had labored so earnestly to bring due honor to the Glee Club and to ‘the name of Fofdham. The new men, realizing the loss of the charter members to whom the entire musical library was familiar, rose to the situation and carried the Glee Club on to new and fruitful fields of glory. Most of the music sung during the past year was delivered with a surcncss and an appreciation surpassing any former rendition. The interpretation of the songs was also given serious and justified attention and thb quality and tone of the ensemble were immeasurably improved. The programs were presented with a certain gusto and polish unachieved in recent years Mr Bailey s acceptance of the offer to become musical instructor at the Nevyman School at Lakewood, N. J., came as a surprise, and the Glee Club began to scarchfor another director, capable as well as suitable for the position. The many applications received included inquiries and offers from a number of the most prominent musicians, composers, and directors in the East. Aftercareful consideration, Mr. FredericJoslvn of Boston was selected to fill the place which Mr. Bailey had left vacant, the former assuming his new directorship early in October. Mr. Joslvn came from the New England Conservatory of Music where he was for some years a member of the faculty in the Department of Voice Culture. He had sung as soloist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra anti with other musical and choral clubs anti organizations, lie possesses a rich bass-baritone voice, over which he has remarkable control. Upon the approval ol his application by the Ford ham authorities Mr. Joslvn severed his connections with the New England Conservatory and moved Ins residence to New York and Jersey City where he has accepted in addition a limited number of students in voice culture. It is to his excellent direction and musicianship that the club owes a great share of its success. To Father Charles J. Foley, S.J., the sincere and lasting thanks of each member of the Glee Club and of the entire University are due. Under Father Foley's guidance during the past two years, the Glee Club has expanded both in the presentation of concerts and the enrollment of members. Among the students the Glee Club is one of the most popular of I'ordham activities, and each term many applicants are obliged to remain on the ever-increasing waiting list until there is place for them at the regular rehearsals, since membership in the club is governed bv the Constitution and limited to a certain number. During the past two years, the many engagements solicited by Father Folev have proven an undeniable burden; and many were the refusals he received (many in excess of the acceptances), vet the schedule of concerts has always remained of highest caliber and of sufficient number to keep the Glee Club in diligent practice each week. 294THE GLEE CLUB Those concerts presented have been entirely successful in that they were both artistic and representative. To Father Foley's untiring efforts credit is also due for the added interest of the members in rehearsals and rhe greater appreciation of the music which they studied Fordham was again entered in the Intercollegiate Glee Club Contest which is held annually at Carnegie Hall in New York City, and under the able direction of George O Grady, '29, made a creditable try for supremacy over the fifteen foremost college glee clubs in America. The contribution to the contest this year was far more-representative than the preceding one. and at the end of their program the Fordham men were accorded tumults of applause. The final event of the scholastic year was held at Town Hall in New York City on April 20th. The program offered was one of the highest worth and the groups of songs were exceptionally well arranged. The hall was thronged with patrons, friends and students of Fordham, and the evening proved thoroughly enjoyable. The interpretation of the attractive selections was noteworthy, and the concert merited and won many excellent criticisms and commendations from prominent critics and musical journals. Artistically, rhe concert was a notable improvement over that of the preceding year which was held at Aeolian Hall. It is with regret that the Glee Club bids farewell to the members of the Class of 1928 who so gallantly helped to nurture it in its infancy and to place it firmly on its feet. To Father Folev they bid adieu, and hope that he will be with them once more in as few years as possible. ISOtSl h 295®lir (Enuuril nf JDrbatr OFFICERS Victor J. Lugowski, '28 John K.

Keegan, ‘28 President Vice-President Secretory Treasurer Censor Historian THE Fordham University Council of Debate, with a very impressive history behind it and every prospect of a brilliant future in view, commenced its annual program on the first Monday of October, 1927. The first gathering of the Maroon forensic group was one that marked a distinctive milestone in the history of the Council, fora record-breaking attendance rendered the seating accommodations insufficient. All this demonstration of interest and enthusiasm is not to be wondered at. for under the leadership of Rev. IT. TaafFc the Council lias advanced by leaps and bounds until it occupies one of the most prominent positions among the campus activities. Father Taaffe was appointed moderator of the debating society some years ago, and resolved that some day in the near future, given a fair amount of co-operation, he would have it attain us rightful place among Fordham's extracurricular endeavors. 296The success that has attended his efforts has amply sustained Father's confidence in the possibilities of the society and the ability of the students to recognize the value of active membership therein. The vcar of 1926-1927 was indeed a most successful one for the Council. Five forensic battles were waged against invading teams from rival colleges, and they were defeated in the order of their coming. The very splendid manner in which our debaters emerged successful in these affrays was a propitious omen for the success of this year's undertakings. The following were installed as the officers of the Council for the current year: President, Mr. Victor J. Lugowski, Vice-President, Mr. John K Carroll; Secretary, Mr. John I. McCormick; Treasurer, Mr. James J. McCarthy; Censor, Mr. Edward F. Hcaly; Historian. Mr. Robert J. Keegan. With these men inoffiectherc was a rollcall of members past and present. TheCoun cil has quite a variety of characters in its make-up. Thcrcarchumorisrs,semi-humorists, deep thinkers, dramatically-inclined orators, and every human variety of speaker. The two Bacon boys, fresh from the wilds of Brooklyn, have done more than a little to keep the society in good humor bv their spirited battles against those who would essay to talk them down for the general peace of all present. Prominent among their oppressors are the Messrs. Higgins and Keegan who have spared nothing except the rod in the effort to accomplish their noble purpose. The most noteworthy fact about the Council this year is this, that the Constitution had to be amended in order to accommodate the number of students who persistently sought membership in the debating ranks. Such a condition had, of course, always been hoped for, but its sudden realization was breath-taking to say the least. In fact, so noteworthy was this rush of students to join the Council considered, that one of the local papers dwelt upon it in an impressive article. Nor has this unprecedented attendance turned out to be a mere flash in the pan, but has been characteristic of all the meetings held to date. The spirit of the members is a very well-known quantity in that practically every one presenr ar meetings endeavors to make some kind of speech before adjournment. The Council is convened once each week for the purpose of holding a formal debate and discussing business. The debates are of a very high standard in that the speakers go to quite a little trouble in assembling facts and perfecting their manner of rendition. It is indeed interesting to observe newcomers in their first attempt at making an address, and then listen raptly at the end of the year when they stroll up to the platform and deliver a polished oration. Such, in a word, is the great benefit to be derived from participation in the activities of the Debate Council, that a worth-while organization is furthered and a lasting benefit to one's self is secured. The most ambitious schedule of intercollegiate debates ever undertaken bv Ford-ham's forum was arranged for this year. No less than sixteen meetings with other teams were scheduled at home and abroad, and in all probability thirteen of these will be contested. The others, because of some difficulty that has arisen, arc in imminent danger of cancellation, but thisdisappointmcnt is nor likely to cause any embarrassment as thequality of opjx sition scheduled is certain toentertain the most critical audiences. At present four of these debates have been contested with Fordhain victorious in all but one. The question in all has been the same: "Resolved, that the United States should cease its policy of armed intervention in foreign countries for the protection of 297SENIOR MEMBERS OF THE VARSITY DEBATING TEAMS American investments except after a formal declaration of war.” This question is the leading subject of forensic dispute this year, and it is generally considered chat the Maroon debaters have presented it in a clear and enlightening manner. There are many other prominent topics, however, for which various trios of the Council are now engaged in deep preparation, and lively tilts are in prospect. The honor of the Council was first upheld bv the Messrs. James K. Sccry, John K Carroll and Charles B McGroddv, Jr , againsr rhe invading Buffalo representatives. The clash of wits and words was thoroughly interesting and was attended by a large and appreciative audience. The Maroon won the verdict to the satisfaction and approval of all. including the opposition. Our banner was next raised in battle when Messrs. Robert J. Keegan. Edward J. McNally and John V. Higgins, Jr., invaded the Southland. Catholic University at Washington, William and Marv College at Williamsburg, Ya., and Randolph Macon College at Ashland, Ya., were the reams encountered. The C. U. orators were successful in gaining a close decision over their guests, although the Fordhamitcs fought valiantly to win. Against William and Mary the Maroon representatives fared better, gaining a unanimous win after a thrilling debate. Triumph again crowned their efforts at Randolph Macon when another unanimous decision was rendered in their favor. With the commendation of all upon their efforts they returned to Ford-ham and arc again ready to do battle on their own ground. Unfortunately, we cannot chronicle what only the future can reveal, but there is every prospect that the Council of Debate will close its season in a blaze of glory with many a victory to add to the undying fame of Fordham. 29S(Tlip fJrrsH CElub Daniel M. Daley, Jr., '28 . Chairman A LTHOUGH the Press Club is composed of all students who write for the New r York- newspapers, its membership largely consists of men who specialize in d- sports news. There arc eight members in the organization, six or whom are devoting their journalistic ability to the covering of Fordham sports, with but two men writing other news from the campus. Early in the scholastic year an attempt was made to organize the members of the writing fraternity, so that uniform reports concerning sports events might be made. This was especially necessary during the football season. As was evidenced bv the publicity Fordham gained in the daily chronicles, the move was very successful. Since it was necessary to have some head to supervise rhe work of the club, an election was held for the chairmanship, and that office was awarded to "Dan” Daley, Sports Ediror of the Ram. anil correspondent for the New York Herald-Tribune and the Evening Telegram. Two other Seniors were veteran members of the organization. "Bob" Hein, in addition to his Ram work, ablv covered the New York Evening Post for two years. "Eddie" Ryan let the sporting public know what was what at Fordham by his energetic work on the morning and evening World and the Daily Neus. It is to be hoped that next year's club will organize early, and imitate if not better the splendid record of service left it as its heritage by the men ol 1928. 299aljr IFnriihaiu iSam STAFF Charles B.

Earl Evans, '29 Circulation Manager IONG Live the Raw.' One of the most active organizations on the campus and vet the most modest. And why modest? Because in its columns, week after week, the glorv and achievements of all rhar is Fordham's have Been made manifest, bm never has mention been made ol the toil and scll-saci ilicc which make it possible for the Ram to exist. But, to the thoughtful, there is little need of stressing the labor connected with a weekly publication such as ours, for its very existence and quality are proof enough. So it is with a deep sense of honor and lust pride that the Maroon sets forth a brief history of the Raw. Ir was in 1917 thar the long-felt need of a college weekly was realized and iinallv brought from a mere possibilitv to an actual fact This was due to the interest and 500 1928 MAROON v mmm- enthusiasm of Mr. Quigley, S.J , the moderator, and Mr. Paul O'Keefe, the editor. Thus was established a means of keeping a lasting record of all that is dear to Ford ham. Throughout the issues of the Raw, we find accounts of athletics, clubs and organiza tions; of the Faculty and the student body. In fact, the Ram has become indispensable. The interest of the student body was aroused from the day the very iirsr issue appeared and. consequently, the Ram flourished rapidly nor only in circulation but also in the number and size of the pages. For the Ram grew with Ford ham, and Fordham’s growth has been almost incredible. There was but one short period when circulation was suspended and that was immediately following the war. Apparently the staff gained new vigor when work was resumed in the Fall of 1921, as the paper became more popular than ever before. Much of the success of the revival of the Ram was due to the Moderators, Fathers Cox and Tracy, S.J. When the Class of 28 entered Fordham. the Ram was under the guidance of Mr. Edward B. Bunn, S.J., and the leadership of Edward B. Lyman, '25 It was at that time that the men of the present Senior Class were first introduced into the fields of journalism. The following year, Father MeGarvey, S.J., became moderator; and Arthur J. Taylor, '26. editor-in-chief. This was another year of advancement in the history of the Ram. During this time, great praise was bestowed on the staff by critics of college papers In fact, the Ram was held by many to be among the leading papers in the country. The year of 27 saw Father Devereaux, $ J., moderator, and through him great things were accomplished, for he had the natural ability and leadership which arc so vital to any publication. The staff under the editorship of Anthony E. Dupraz, '27. worked together as never before, and the results were most gratifying. The editorial anti news items were more cleverly written, and both the advertising and circulation increased. As to the financial management, that was well taken care of by the Business Moderator, Mr. McGrath, S.J. And now we conic to the year and administration of ‘28, and find the Ram most fortunate in retaining Father Devereaux, S.J., as moderator. With due respect for all preceding years, we hold that the year 1928, through the agency of the members of the Class of '28, has up to the present seen the best year in the history of the Ram. Once again it was found necessary to increase the size of the pages, which now number eight. A new kind of type has been used this year which has given the paper a neater and more distinctive appearance. As to the editorials, it is sufficient to say that they have often been quoted by many leading colleges. "The Portfolio," a column new to the Ram this year, has placed the paper in a class by itself. The sports section has taken up three full pages and features a sports editorial. In this respect also we can claim supremacy, for such is most unusual for a college weekly. The news items have been up to the minute and have contained most colorful details of all that is of interest to Fordham This success is due to the staff who have given much of their time and effort. But upon the leader of an organization depends in large measure the quality of its members. Hence, great credit is due to its Editor-in-Chief, Charles B. MeGroddy, '28. It was early in Freshman that "Charlie" joined the Ram as a member of the sports staff. We have frequently seen him diligently following the reams and then hurrying back to the office to type rhe accounr of the fray. For three long years, ' Charlie busied him self attending to each weekly assignment. Upon reaching Senior, we thought that he was headed for the sports editorship, bur that was not to be. The post ol cditor-in-chief was left vacant, and "Charlie" was elected unanimously to fill it. All the staff readily recognized his ability and the services he had rendered. The progress made by the paper during the year tells of the wisdom of the staff's choice. There is one particular section which every student first turns to when he receives his Ram on Friday morning. That is the sports editorial, "Looking Them Over With Dan Daley." This column attracted like a magnet, and that was so because "Dan" was fully capable of his undertaking. He has been on the sports staff since Freshman, and his experience qualified him for such a position. In fact, we may have in Dan" a future Grantland Rice. Another valuable asset to the sports staff was "Bob" Keegan whose interest in journalism dates back CO early Freshman when he received his first assignment in the field of sports. It was only natural that "Bob" should serve well as a sports writer, for his enthusiasm for athletics is unbounded. He not only covered home games but often traveled mro foreign territory to "get his story." "Curly" Seymour and "Bob" Hein joined the staff in their Junior year and following then-natural inclinations started on the s{toris staff. It is only to be regretted that they did not join the staff sooner, for the Raw, and in particular the sports section, was greatly enriched bv their co-operation. Among the associate editors were numbered "Frank" Van Alcn and E. Paul Emanuel, both of the Class of '2S and both members of the staff since Freshman. Every Friday, "Frank" could be found in the Raw office, industriously pounding the typewriter and getting out Ins story for the next issue. In fact, there were but few activities which he did not report. "Frank" was always ready, whether it was a debate, play, concert, interview, or come what might. He also served as "morgue editor," and anyone who wished any information as to the past needed only to see "Frank." Paul was one of the shining lights of the staff and seemed actually to sense the presence of news. He also had the faculty and ease of "covering" any story. For here again experience showed its value, and so after three years of gathering news. Senior found the climax. "Bill" Walsh, '28, served ably on the business staff and in Junior was circulation manager. Mr. Philip Walsh, S.J., succeeded Mr. McGrath, S.J., as business moderator for the year '28. and worked untiringly for the success of the Raw. Now that we have ended the roll-call of the Class of '28. let us inform those who are interested of a great change which was brought about in the office of the Raw. Just before the beginning of the year, the office was entirely renovated. Through the efforts of Father Devercaux, S.J., new office fixtures, desks, chairs, typewriters, replaced the old. and the walls were repainted. Upon the return of the staff from vacation, they resumed their duties in a far pleasanter and more pleasurable atmosphere. To all this the Class of '28 must say farewell and leave in the hands of the successors. We regret that space will not permit us to give individual thanks to each and every underclassman who helped to make the Raw a success. But we arc most grateful to all. To those loyal scribes we tender our sincere and hearty wishes for all success during their administration. 302Joseph G. Hopkins, 29 iltf ((jhriU (Club OFFICERS First Semester President Joseph M.

Earl Evans, '29 Secretary Ward Clarke, '29 Censor THE Fordham Quill Club first came into existence during the Fall of 1925 under the name of the Freshman Writers' Club. With the passing of a scholastic year, the new-born society rose to the dignified heights of a Varsity club. The purpose for which Father Taaffc organized the club is to give to its members a thorough foundation in the technique of the short story. This has been accomplished not only through the study of the short story, as offered bv an analysis of the works of the masters, but also through the efforts of the members themselves who read and criticize rhrcc of their productions at the bi-weekly meetings. To those who have thus far so successfully advanced the work of the club we can offer nothing bur hearty and sincere congratulations, to those upon whose shoulders the future destiny of the organization will rest we extend our best wishes together with rhe inspiring message.

For forty-five years, this magazine has harbored the thoughts, ideals and aspirations of hundreds of young men. During that time it has slowly risen in perfection until now lor the last decade or so it has attained the heights. It has had its ups and downs, as every literary organ must have at some time or other, in developing and cradling genius, strengthening style and training expression until it is a taut string, alert for the recording of each thought that plays upon it. Now. in its forty-sixth edition it reaches the Class of 28. 304To the Reverend Father Augustus M. Fremgen, S.J., the moderator, is most of the credit due. He is the spirit of Diogenes looking for writers. If he docs not lind them, he creates them. How—is his secret. Under his guidance Tlx Ford hum Monthly has soared higher and higher, its foundations strong and massive; its towers outlined against a smiling skv. It is onlv with a good helmsman that a ship can navigate well. George L. Grainger, as Editor in-Chief during 1927 1928, took the Monthly into his hands and set a certain standard a standard that had to he lived up to. "The best always in the past, the unreachable and envied of all in the present." There are but two colleges we can think of rhat could possibly compete with the 1927 1928 edition, and the reason was the beautiful poetry of Mr. Grainger. It was poetry, not verse, and poetry can make or break a magazine. A master of all the forms, he is unsurpassed in his free verse. We can say without stint that the poetry of the editor-in-chief this year is among the most impressive that has ever appeared on the pages of the magazine. Besides this, there were sketches and the grueling Antidote. The four senior associate editors now meet us. Mr. Daniel F. Curry has given us critical cssavson Booth Tarkington,Joseph Hergesheimer which received commendation from a good many exchanges), John GaIsworth and sundrv other men of the day. Pungently clear-cut, he has presented the figures of these men before our eyes. He has a sound, sane working principle, and not infrequently he uses it as a bludgeon on lalsc premises, deductions and inductions. Mr. Joseph F. Difflcv has truly won his spurs both in poetry and prose. He has time and again exhibited a strong penchant for foreign settings. We have truly enjoyed and found irresistibly attractive his colorful and facile weaving of plots from out these settings Mr. Edward J. Komora has written many a light,satirical essay, his subjects including Gothic architecture. Ibsen, the poor detective novel (wherein he wrote an expose of Hawkshaw and his fellow tradesmen). In the first-named, "Ed," in true architectural style, flayed and set up a building all of his own. Besides perfecting a prose style, he has dashed off poems that arc a delight to the reader. "Ed" has (speaking of the prose), after the fashion of Thackeray, eaten much bread and given the public cake. His writings are not superficial, though lightly touched. They have a kernel in them which it is the duty of the reader to find and absorb. Edward W. Nash has given us the ultra in his poetry and the naively sophisticated in his prose. In his book reviews he is of a critical acumen, sorting with blessed intuition the chaff from the wheat. H:s essays, "America Comes of Age,..........Hie Centenary of William Blake," arc pure gems. "The Caldron" is a cleverly-executed impressionism of modern life. The jumble and helter-skelter and the pot-pourr; effect arc well sustained and satirized. Then we have pictures of crumbling cities and vivid images of Ponce de Leon in magnificently futile search for an ideal. Mr. Nash’s work shows the result of wide reading and intelligent digestion. His writings were always interesting and never dull. It will be long before his place will be filled as he filled it; long before a man can so combine depth with interest, searching glances with completeness and erudition with charm. The bright constellations among the Juniors were Joseph Hopkins, the assistant editor, whose mastery of the sketch is only equaled by his poetic charm, and Ward Clarke, whose stories were ever exhilarating, containing as they did the lure of the unique. John K. Carroll, too. proved his ability as a poet and prose writer. In leaving the Monthly in such eager hands we feel that nor only the enthusiasm of the past will be kept alive but that rhe magazine will conrinuc to arouse admiration in the hearts of our contemporary exchanges and amazement in the eves of posterity. 305CLhr ftUrnrs anil fHitmmprs OFFICERS J.

Pres id tut Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Directors Business Manager THE history of the Mimes and Mummers. Ford ham University’s dramatic society, is a rale of the consistent achievement in the way of artistic success of an organization whose purpose as stated in its Constitution is "to foster a love ol dramatic art in us members, and to train them m the full expression of this art in all its phases playwriting, acting, directing and stagecraft " This, then, is the end for which the Mimes and Mummers lives and functions. How noteworthilv it has succeeded in us fourfold aim, Fordham’s innumerable dramatic triumphs eloquently testify. In our brief chronicle we cannot aspire to review the manifold successes ol the sotictysincc us inception, but we shall endeavor to enumerate and summarily discuss 306the productions presented within the past lour years. This is the period of our choice, because it is within the space of these years chat the members of the Class of 1928. with whose achievements this volume is primarily concerned, actively assisted in making each production a success. "Albcric, Archbishop of Ghent," was the first play in which the Class of 1928. then in its Freshman year, was represented. Although no one of its members succeeded in winning the leading role, those who were capable and fortunate enough to become part of the supporting cast acquitted themselves so creditably and appeared to such an advantage that rhe moderator of the society, Mr. lid ward B. Bunn, S.J., evidently impressed with their showing, organized the Freshman Workshop” (a society molded upon the "Plavshop" of the upperclassmen) that he might the more readily develop both the patent and latent talent of the class. Thus, besides appearing in rhe Varsity One-Act Plav Contest, the tyro thespians and authors presented a One-Act Play Contest of their own, offering plays which they had themselves written, interpreted and produced. By winning firsr and second prizes as the authors of the two best plays, Messrs. Joseph A. Phelan and John J. O'Brien won fame for themselves in a class already distinguished for its gifted men. In "Pals First," which was the play chosen the following year, the '2b men were given an opportunity to prove their abilities as interpreters of modern life and manners on the stage. Three members, Mr. Warren Weld, Mr. Charles B. MeGroddv and Mr. J. Gerard Cregan, won places in the dramatis personae, and by their effective work added not a little to the class laurels. The Varsity One-Act Play Contest of that year contained plays by Mr. John J. O'Brien and Mr. Joseph A. Phelan and listed among its actors nine members of the Class of 28 Messrs. MeGroddv, Cregan, Broderick, Komora, Tynan, Frank, Grainger, Weld and Gallagher. The close of the year brought a change of moderators to the society. Mr. Bunn, S.J., under whose inspiring guidance the Mimes and Mummers had spent three very profitable and happy years, was called to Woodstock to finish his theological studies in preparation for the priesthood, and Mr Glen E. Walsh, S. J , was assigned to take his place. The new moderator quicklv acclimated himself and lost no time in making his preparations for the ensuing year. Junior year, as far as the dramatic activities of the Class of '28 were concerned, was practically a repetition of the preceding year. In the Varsit production, Clyde Fitch's famous "Beau Brummel," Messrs. MeGroddv, Weld and Cregan again gave praiseworthy performances; and the One-Act Plav Contest boasted plays by Mr. John J. O'Brien and Mr. Cornelius F. Spillane, and presented Messrs. Cregan, Diffley, Grainger and Timmes among its actors. At the last meeting of the academic year, in appreciation of the many services they had rendered the society, Mr. J. Gerard Cregan and Mr. Joseph A. Caffrey were honored by being elected to the respective offices of President and Vice-President of the Mimes and Mummers. Mr. Warren Weld was made treasurer, Mr. John J. O'Brien was appointed Chairman of the Business Committee, and Mr. Henry P. Kennedy and Mr. Cornelius F. Spillane were chosen as members of the Board of Directors. With the advent of Senior year, the last Varsity production in which a member Of the Class of 1928 would appear was put in rehearsal. The work which was finally selected for presentation was Lytton-Bulwer’s poetic drama— "Richelieu.'' It is safe tosay that no play was ever more favorably received by a Fordham audience or more thoroughly deserved the rich praise bestowed upon it than this artful masterpiece in which the men of the Class of 1928 made their farewell bow. The title role was awarded to a 28 man, Mr. J. Gerard Cretan, and a happy choice he proved to he For if the Class of '28 had accomplished nothing in the held of the drama during its course at Fordham, it would still be possessed of sufficient glory, reflected upon it by Mr. Cregan's marvelous portrayal of "Richelieu," to distinguish it as exceptional. Nor was Mr. Cregan the only member of his class whose good work deserves mention, for Mr. Charles B. MeGroddv performed admirably in a lesser characterization. That merited commendation may not appear to be withheld, let us here say that there were many members of the cast, including Messrs. McAuley, Carroll and Rooney of the Class of ‘29; Messrs. King, Hollenbach and McKernan of the Class of '30 and O'Donahuc of 31 to whom felicitations are due. And these we here and now wholeheartedly tender. But if we seem to have been more partially attentive to the members of the Class of 1928, it is because, apart from the question of merit, this is their Year Book and, as has been previously stated, it is primarily concerned with their achievements. Of course, the Annual One-Act Play Contest saw the representatives of the Class of '28 doing their talented bit once more, and generous were the plaudits they won. Once again the ingenious playwrights charmed with their clever playlets and the actors impressed with their art. Then, with the final curtain, the dramatic careers of the men of '28 were brought to a close. 11 would indeedbegross-ly unfair were we to neglect to speak of the faithful and highl vefliciciu work of those members of the class who served on the stage crew.

Thus vve have briefly reviewed the dramatic activities of the members of the Class of 1928 and recalled the productions of the last four years, and now we must bring our short his tor}' to an end. We have in retrospection beheld these men of 28 eminent successes on the stage where lile is makc-bclic c. Now, as they go toplay theirvarious roles on that great stage where "all the men and women" are the players, let us express the ardent hope that they will be as well received and as gloriously successful there as thev were in their college days at Fordham. »Vjltfntfcl (ttluh OFFICERS Anthony Soscia, '30 William R Ruocca, ’29 John F.

Reilly, our very popular and efficient registrar, is attributed the honor of having founded the Connecticut Club in December, 1924. The club claims, moreover, the additional distinction of being the first of its kind at Fordham, and in virtue of this seniority has established and maintained a high standard of social perfection which other undergraduate clubs might well (and do) imitate Under the able guidance of its Moderator, the Reverend Dean, it has flourished rapidly and at present numbers sixtv-five members on its roster. Its chief aim. as set forth in its Constitution, is to propagate in Connecticut Fordham's interest and in Fordham, Connecticut’s. That the club's aim has been realized at least to some extent was clearly demonstrated on the occasion of its annual dance held at the Lawn Club in New Haven. For this was a complete success socially and financially irrefutable testimony of Fordham's popularity in the Nutmeg State. The Connecticut Club represents the type of social club which because of its service and lofty purpose the college has deemed worthy of encouragement. o fNTIA‘ bOCjOfA IT 313 THE COLLEGE BAND Robert J.

Manager MAJOR CAVANAUGH'S first season as football coach ar Ford ham was one of the most disap[X)inting campaigns which was ever fought b a Maroon eleven. With but three veterans lost from the strong 1926 eleven, and Major Cavanaugh engaged as head coach, hopes ran high for a first-class grid team. Much to the surprise and chagrin of Fordhamites (both undergraduates and alumni), the ‘27 eleven proceeded to lose all four of its major contests and one game of minor importance. It is true that there were in the line-up several players of more than ordinarv ability, but a succession of injuries and other unfortunate happenings robbed Cavanaugh of the services of several of his stars at critical times. To begin with. “Eddie" Ryan, ‘2S. substitute quarterback lor two years and the outstanding candidate to succeed Zev Graham at the post, met with an accident and was unable to don his uniform until the season had been half completed. Paul Con boy, hard plunging fullback, suffered a recurrence of an injury to his neck sustained in 1926, and he, too, was lost to the team. The shining light in the Ford ham backficld during the early part ol the season was Big Jim" Delaney. One of the best punters and passers in the East, he was an 320N. Y. U. GAME CAPTAIN CONNOR CHECKED BY GRIPP OF FORDHAM important cog in Cavanaugh’s machine. However, “Jim" left college during the week preceding the Providence game and Fordham was left to face both the Rhode Islanders and Georgetown without the services of a capable kicker. In a pre-season scrimmage. Captain ''Bill" Fcaster, for two years one of the best tackles in this parr of the country, wrenched his shoulder badly and was our of uniform for four weeks. Fcaster did not get back in to action until the N V U game, and even then his shoulder so bothered him that he was unable to play up to his usual standard. Fordham's most unfortunate injury, however, did not happen to one of the players bur to Coach Cavanaugh himself. From the time that the grid candidates reported until the Georgetown game ended the season, the Major was suffering from an inflammatory condition of his eves, a direct result oi wounds received during the Great War. With Cavanaugh unable to handle his team during the major portion of the season, it is easy to see why Fordham's grid fortunes were not as rosy as they were expected to be before the campaign opened. The 1928 Captain, John Smith, with Roger Scully, "Red" Cleveland, "Bill" Manning, "Al" Politis, "Jerry" Deevey and "Herb" Ncilan were among other first-string players who were forced to the sidelines by injuries. The season ojxrncd auspiciously enough when the Cavanaugh eleven defeated the Bethany College team at Fordham Field by 34-0. After a slow first half, in which the Maroon scored only one touchdown (and that on a long run by Dc Lany who scooped up a Bethany fumble), the Varsity opened up a strong attack to push over four more-tallies. "Johnny" Gripp and Paul Conboy took turns in tearing through the visitors' 321GEORGE WASHINGTON GAME—GRIPP PLUNGES THROUGH LINE FOR GAIN line, and “Jim” Dc Lanyand Ralph Buckley gained plenty of yardage around the ends. Dc Lancy, O’Connor, O’Shea and Buckley each contributed a long run, and the end of che game found Fordham’s substitutes successfully guarding her goal. The following week-end found the Maroon gaining her second straight triumph at Fordham Field. Lebanon Valley, rated much stronger than Bethany, was leading rhe home ream, 3—0, at the end of the third quarter. Two passes intercepted by "Red” Cleveland, however, put Fordham in possession of the hall and she made the most of her opportunity both times. Terrific off-tackle plunging by Gripp and De Lanv soon advanced the ball across the goal line, and Fordham emerged victorious, 13-3. The third game on the Fordham schedule, that with Manhattan College, was called off out of respect for one of the latter's players, ‘ Don ’' M ore v, who died the week before from sunstroke suffered in the Rutgers-Man-hattan game. In the first major con test on her schedule, B. C.

"Bill" Feaster played for the first time in this game, but his injured shoulder was still too weak to stand the strain and he was forced to leave. "Tubby” Bcloin, Bruce and Gripp turned in the best performances for the Maroon, while Briantc and Connor, playing their last game againsr Fordham, shone for the Violet. The most disappointing performance which the Varsity gave all season was saved for the few rooters who journeyed to Washington to sec the game with George Washington University. Profiting by the poorest exhibition of football in Fordham's history, the Washingtonians emerged victorious bv 13—0. Led by "Al" Weston, who ran back the opening kick-off ninety yardsfora touch-down, Boston College came to the Polo Grounds and went home with a 27 7 victory.

It was left to Cavanaugh's eleven, however, to he the lust Eordliam team to score on Boston College since 1918 when the Major took hold at Boston. A beautiful eighty-yard drive in the last live minutes of play ended only when "Jim" De Lanv had planrcd the hall hack of the Eagles' goal line. "Herb” Neilan, playing his first game as Varsity quarterback, and rhe evcr-rcliahlc "Tuhbv" Bcloin, were Fordham's stars. Before an unusually small crowd, Eordham lost her fourrh straight game when Holy Cross completed a long forward pass in the linal minute of play. After Fordham had been leading since the second period by grace of a safety, the Maroon rooters saw the game go to the Worccstcrites by 7—2. With Bill" Fcastcr in top form for the first time, and the rest of the team playing great football, the Varsity seemed well on the way to scoring a startling upset when Ryan's long heaves netted the Purple touchdown. The field was a veritable sea of mud, and neither eleven was able to gain by means of a running attack In the second quarter, with the hall in the Crusaders’ possession on their own twenty-yard line, "Burt" Bruce broke through and blocked Ryan's kick The ball rolled over the goal-line, and Dowling fell on it to give Ford-ham a two-point lead. Until Rvan began his barrage of successful forwards late in the final period, this two-point lead looked a sufficient margin for a Maroon victory'. Without the services of "Jim" Dc Lanv, whose sensational punting had been responsible for Fordham's great showing against Holy Cross, the Varsity traveled to Providence ro meet the Providence College team on Armistice Day. The home team, aided by Fordham’s misplays, pushed over a pair of touchdowns in the first quarter. However, the power of the Maroon attack was nor ro be denied, and wirh "Johnny" Gripp, John Smith, "Tubby" Bcloin, and "Bill" Feaster shining brightly, Fordham scored four touchdowns in the next three periods to win by 26—19 The final game of the season found rhe high scoring Georgetown eleven at the Polo Grounds ready to do battle with Cavanaugh’s Maroons. Led by "Bobby” Nork, second leading scorer in the East, and Claude Grisby, captain and star center, the Blue and Gray sent the home team down to a 38—0 defeat. The score, however, tells only half the story. Fordham exhibited a defense which stopped thcBlueandGravrun- 324CAPTAIN FEASTER AND COACH CAVANAUGH rung attack dead in its tracks. With Bruce, Fcascer, Bcloin,Walsh and the rest of the line performing in great style, Georgetown was forced to take tothcair. But Fordham's glaring weakness all season, her inability to stop a good forward passing attack, cost her the chance to hold Georgetown to a closer score. Some remarkable punting by Mooney, who averaged over fifty yards on his kicks, held rhe Maroon at bay after "Johnny’’ Gripp had torn the visitors’ line to shreads. Six points, the result of a successful pass, was all that Georgetown could get in the first period. A fumble on the twelve-yard stripe by a Ford ham back, and a blocked kick which rolled across the goal line, gave Georgetown her second period total of eight points. A sixtv-vard march was stopped on the Fordham ten-yard line in the third period, and Mooney added three more points with a placement kick. The final quarter found the Blue and Gray scoring three times, twice on their own passes and once on an intercepted Maroon heave. Of the team of the 1927 season, only four men will be lost next fall Captain "Bill" Feasrer, "Bure" Bruce, Ralph Buckley, and "Artie" O'Connor. With the rest of the squad available next year, together with the great Freshman squad, Fordham s outlook for 1928 is exceptionally bright. A stiff nine-game schedule has been arranged for next season, and Major Cavanaugh is expected to lead his men through a highly successful campaign.

Pisani, ’29 Manager A ERAGING an even forrv poinrs a game, the greatest Freshman Football team in Fordham s history went through a difficult six-game schedule without suffering a defeat and without being scored upon. In rolling up two hundred and fort) points, it defeated four college Freshman teams and two of the strongest prep school elevens in the East. Under the guidance of “Tony" Comerford and "Dinny" McNamara (their coaches), the Maroon cubs presented a team without any outstanding star. Two elevens, each as strong as the other, were interchangeable; and Comerford rarclv used the same line-up in any two games. Strong on the line, the Frosh had a wealth of fast, hard-running backs, and Fordham's future on the gridiron looks bright for several vears to come with such sterling players on hand. The season opened at Fordham Field with the Lafayette Freshmen facing ours. Lafayette boasred one of the strongest teams in her history, but the Fordham lads were entirely too much for the visitors and turned in a 26—0 vicrory The McKenzie Prep team. New York Stare champions, had had several opponents cancel games with them because of their vaunted strength. However, the Maroon Frosh were willing to meet the "up-staters," and their apparent foolhardiness was vindicated by an easy victory, 33—0. 326UNION GAME FROSH RECOVER OPPONENTS' FUMBLE Sr. John's of Danvers, Mass., was the next scheduled opponent. The Danvers lads had defeated the Yale Freshmen and others; in short, had won all their games. Slight favorites, the Maroon cubs outplayed the home team in a game played near Boston, and to the surprise and consternation of the Danvers rooters their team lost. 26—0. The football warriors of '31 ran up their highest score of the season on the following week-end when they blanked the Union Freshmen, 63 0. Almost three complete teams were used by Coach Comerford against the Union Combination. On the following Saturday the Seton Hall Frosh bowed to ours, 46—0, at South Orange, N. J. The Maroon youngsters brought their season to a close at Rutgers where they preserved their spotless record by taking the New Brunswick eleven into camp by 47—0. Although held to a single touchdown in the first half they ran wild in the closing periods to win easily. Ryan, Ober, Picculcwicz, Gaffney, Cullen, McMahon and Shableski were the outstanding backs. Siano, at center, Wisniewski, llolmbcrg, Foley and Traccv, guards; Hurley, Miskiuis, Jones and Richardson, tackles, gave Fordham one of the strongest Freshman lines ever assembled at Rose Hill. The ends were well guarded by Callahan, Elcewicz, Vaughan and Sullivan. With all these men added to the remnants of the 1927 varsity eleven, Major Cavanaugh can look forward to next season and manv seasons to come with expectations of great Fordham teams.tBaakrtliall Edward A. Kelleher Coach Francis E. Dougherty, ’29 Captain Donal F. Forrester, ’28 Alanapfr DECEMBER 10th A large crowd is on hand ro see the basketball team open us season with a victory over St. Francis College of Brooklyn. By totaling fortv-seven points against her opponents’ seventeen, the Maroon again gives evidence that she possesses a probable championship team. Coach "Ed" Kelleher surprises no one by adhering to his unique two-team system, and so the second team takes the lloor to start the game. It plavs well for its half of the first period and holds the St. Francis team even, 5 3. The first team now enters rhe game and takes rhe lead on Lander’s baskets scored within a second or two of half time, and after the rest comes back to pile up a very safe lead and maintain it to the end. Captain Dougherty, "Pop” Swcctman and "Bo" Adams arc the stars of the evening, with the other players serving almost as well at their various posts. December 14th—Muhlenberg is the second victim of the Varsity courtmen, and succumbs to the superior playing of both first and second teams bv the score of 49 27. The "seconds” show great improvement, and leave the game to the regulars after five minutes’ plav gives them a lead of 13—8. The first team runs wild from here on, and forges ahead to score the second decisive victory. "Doc Dougherty shows he is in form against the Pennsylvanians by turning in high score for the Maroon with fifteen points. 328December 17th—For the first time in three starts, Fordham is pressed to win, and it is only a whirlwind finish that gives us the winning edge over Springfield College by 31—24. The visitors are a hard fighting fast group of players, and force the Varsity, both first and second teams, to a speedy pace. "Do' Adams and "Cap" Dougherty arc the outstanding players this night, each of them netting eleven points. James, left forward of the visiting team, is close behind them for individual honors with ten points. December 21st—Union College is met and defeated in the last game before the holiday season. It is another easy victory for the home ream which scores thirty-nine points to twelve for the visitors. The second team sees plenty of service, and besides starting the game, as is usual, returns to the line-up for the closing minutes of the final period. "Doc. "Bo" Adams and "Pop" Sweetman arc the leading scorers again, making twelve, ten and seven points respectively. Only three of the Union players arc able to tally Killcnc, a guard, with eight points; MacDowell with three, and Gates, sub-center, with one. January 2d—On the night of the return to college, the basketball team is called upon ro meet Yale. Unlike the Eli players, our men arc unpracticed, only one or two having worked out over the holidays. Yale plays a fine game, but in spite of all it can do. is forced to be satisfied with rhe short end of a 47—32 score. Dougherty and Adams come very near scoring enough points between them alone to beat the visitors. Each of them accounts for seventeen points on eight field goals and one foul, anil are the main reasons for Fordham’s fifth victorv. Ward, left forward for the New Haven team, does his best to even things, and in virtue of scoring ten points and of being a constant stumbling block to the team's passing system is largely responsible for Yale’s good showing. January 6th—Our sixth opponent is the highly-touted St.John's live from Brooklyn, which until this fateful evening has seven games without a defeat credited to it. The game is without doubt one of the best that has ever been played at Fordham, and the final score, 32—20, falls far short of telling a fair story of the game. As our second team takes the lloor at the opening whistle, a crowd of over 5000 fans starts an endless series of cheers which at length forces "Dave" Tobey (the "ref") to stop the game and request silence. After five minutes of the lirst ixrriod pass, the "secs’ yield the floor to the regulars, bequeathing to them a lead of one point, the score standing 2—1. The regulars arc in line shape, and by a spectacular display of guarding allow the visitors but one basket for the remainder of the period. At half time, Fordham leads, 16—3 Collins, right forward on the Brooklyn team and its leading scorer, breaks free in the second half, and on five field goals and three foul shots, totals thirteen points, bringing the visitors within three points of tying the score at twenty-three all, with but a few minutes to go. For the remaining minutes of play, however, the Maroon defense tightens and holds its basket unassailable, while Dougherty, Adams and Reardon send the team ahead for the winning margin of nine points. January 11th—For the first time during the season the undefeated Fordham five on meeting the Crescent club players at the Gym," trail their opponent for the greater parr of rhe game. The clubmen show the effect of constant competition, and with a speed that matches Fordham s, and an uncanny accuracy at long range, come very close to ending the Maroon’s list of six victories. But by heady playing,"Ed” Kcllchcr’s charges surge ahead in the final period to win by a score of 28—20. "Bo" Adams and "Nick" Landers arc the high scorers for Fordham with eight and five points respectively, while Kurtz, left forward for the visitors, takes the evening’s scoring honors with a total of ten, on five field goals. January 14th—Fordham now travels up to Syracuse on her Northern trip and, in the first game away from her own court, squeezes out a 31—29 victory over the 329VARSITY PRACTICE “up-staters." It is the first time this season that Syracuse has been beaten on its own home court. “Frank" Dougherty and “Bo" Adams, aided by a fine demonstration of passing on the part of Maurice Woods, arc the New Yorkers' source of power that gives them victory. Each of these men scores eleven points. Eiscman, substitute center for Syracuse, is the high scorer of his team with a total of seven points. January 16rh—With eight victories and nor a single defeat to dull the luster of her record, Fordham is to be seen next at Hamilton, N. Y., where Colgate is encountered as the second of the Northern trip opponents. Here the Maroon has a very narrow escape, winning by a mere one-point margin, when “Nick Landers, playing in an inspired manner, scores a basket in the last second of play and puts the Kclleher-ltcs in the van, 33—32. Landers is second in scoring to Captain Dougherty, who makes ten points, and all through the evening is busy breaking up the home team’s passing attack. January 21st The annual classic, the City College game, is next on the list, and as soon as it returned from up-statc the squad is put through an intensive training period by "Ed” Kelleher to make ready for "Nat" Holman's Lavender courtstcrs. Perhaps it is the reaction from the tiring up-statc games, or the trip, but at anv rate, Fordham is not playing her best when she receives her first setback of the year at the hands of the Holmanitcs who lead at the final whistle by one point, 26—25 Even though beaten, the Maroon players are much more expert than the City College men, and would undoubtedly triumph were they in proper form. A foul shot by Adams that would mean a tie score touches the rim of the basket and rolls out as a blast from the referee's whistle ends the game. Sandak, substitute left guard, is the winning lactor of the Lavender, the three baskets he scores after relieving Musicant toward the end of the second half sending the home team into its retained lead. It is the Inst occasion this season on which Coach Kelleher uses his first team throughout the game, and not one Maroon substitute is made. Captain Dougherty is high scorer with a total of eleven points. Rubcnstcin of City College follows with nine, and Landers is next with eight. 330CAPTAIN’ DOUGHERTY AND COACH KELLEHER February 1st—The Maroon quintet is favored to win over the Holy Cross bas-kctccrs because of a dandy record of victories scored over foremost reams of the East. The New Englanders, too, have compiled a fine string of successes. Well, there goes the whistle, and Coach Kcllchcr's second "stringers'' peel off their jackets. A rousing cheer sends the Purple out to do or die and the game is on. The play is very fast with Fordham holding a slight lead. Time out. Here comes Captain Dougherty and his first team. They’re oil. There goes Adams! "Do" |ust sneaked around the whole team and caged a pretty field goal. There he goes again—they can't seem to keep him covered Fordham is well ahead now as Landers scores on a pass from Swcctman under the basket. The half is over, and the crowd discusses the speed and deadly shooting of the Bronx boys. This second half appears to be even more of a whirlwind than its predecessor. Adams scores a couple more field goals, and the game is over, with the Maroon on the long end of a 42 33 score. February 4th—We arc back in New York and occupying a dead center seat for the Swarthmore game. The Pennsylvanians get the ball on the first tap they lose it —and the home team works towards their basket. The seconds" score without much effort, and now Kelleher enters his first team. The visitors arc bewildered by the regulars' passing and cannot seem to make much headway even when the ball is in their own jxjsscssion. "Doc and Swcctman score—oh, Adams must l c included! The shifty "Bo" simply won't stay out of the scoring column. "Mauric” Woods plays a bang-up game on the defense. In the second half the home team chalks up additional points and Coach Kelleher re-enters the second team. It, too, is able to cope with Swarthmorc's best, and the game is won, 43—12. February 11 ill—Holy Cross is visiting our Gvm tonight and Fordham is confident of repeating their victory of some weeks past. The Maroon seconds have the ball, but the worcestcritcs crowd them closely. The Cross has it now, and a beautiful pass to Reilly puts her in the lead. The Maroon headliners now enter the game and secure a slight lead at half time. Fordham works better now, but Holy Cross is a much improved quintet to that which was rather easily defeated at Worcester. The final score is 24 18 in favor of the Maroon, and an interesting game it was.JfrrHhman Saskrthall Edward A. Kelleher ... Couch James,). McCarthy, '29 Manager DECEMBER 10th—Our Freshman team docs not make as auspicious a start in its season’s opening contest as is expected, and is defeated, 17 15, by the Newton High School Five—winners ol the Queens P S. A. L. Championship. In spite of the efforts of "AT Zileski, star forward for Fordham's Freshmen who takes the high scoring honors of the evening with eight points, the lead which the the Brooklynites won soon after the opening whistle cannot be made up. and the ream of 1931 suffers its first defeat. December 14th The Morris High basketeers arc not able to play at the Gym tonight, and the Horace Mann basketball team, which substitutes for them, is the victim of the Frosh’s fine playing, losing 24 13 It is the first of what is hoped to be many victories for the 1931 players. December 17th—Our Freshman team seems to have hit its stride at last, and is entirely outclassing their rivals tonight—the James Monrex- High School Five winners of the Bronx P S A L. honors. ”A1” Zileski, 31 Cleft forward), leads his team-mates in scoring throughout, and now, as the final whistle is being sounded and the fans repair to the Gym steps for a breath of air and a smoke, Fordham is the winner, 17 12, and "AT s' total is equal to the entire number of points the visitors scored, his six field goals bringing his tally to twelve. December 21st Many of the students have repaired to their respective homes for the Christmas vacation, and tonight's crowd is a bit scanty as basketball crowds ar Fordham go. The Evander Childs High School Basketball team is on hand to meet the Freshmen in the preliminary to the Union College game. Fordham is having an easy time with the Childs' players, and "Ed" Kcllchcr is trying out many of his new men. Tornev, a new man playing at center, has led the entire field in scoring all evening and has eight points totaled so far There it goes—the final whistle! And the Maroon youngsters have made it three victories. The final score is 25 17. 332January 2d—Xavier High School js proving a rough nut to crack. The Freshmen, who returned to school only this afternoon, arc having a stiff fight with them, but arc holding their own. It is the second half with the teams deadlocked at 7 7 as the “ref" blows for the start of play. The visitors arc forcing the play a bit more than our boys and it looks bad It's over? And the Fordham Freshmen have lost their second game out of five starts, the final score giving a flimsy advantage to the Xavier-ites, 12—11 Brock and Clark of Xavier, and Zilcski of Fordham. are the high scorers, each with four points. January 6th— Kcllehcr's Freshman team is playing well tonight and arc a way out in the lead as the final few minutes of the St. John s Freshman game remain to be played. With a minute to go, the Brooklynites are fighting hard to rally, but the defense of the Maroon is too strong for them, anil as the game ends, our Freshmen lead, 26- 15- Marchimck, a substitute guard, springs into prominence on bis first try as a guard by totaling almost as many points as the entire St John’s group fourteen. Zlonvcvvski, a new Frosh center, is second with seven points. January 11th The Fordham Freshmen basketccrs entertain George Washington High this evening. The Maroon quintet has been "going great guns' lately and expects to defeat the Public School outfit. The latter, however, puts up a sturdy defense, and although 31 leads, the margin between the two tallies is nor large. The second half settles the matter, chough, and after a great rallv the Frosh win, 24—15- January 21st With the City College Gym packed to the doors, "Nat" Holman's proteges arc engaged in a merry tussle with the Frosh. The Lavender youngsters have Lxrcn defeated quite regularly this year, and by all omens Fordham should keep her record intact. She docs, 19—12. February 8th The Loyola quintet coming from Yorkville with no defeats, and wirh victories over the best high schools in the city, arc expected to give the Frosh a hard tussle tonight. Kclleher's boys arc a bit too clever, however, and despite a fine rally by the visitors, triumph, 27—13- Februarv 11th—Regis High School is next in order. The Maroon is meeting a team with a fine record which admits of only one defeat, and that to Loyola. The Regisites'cause seems to be lost, however, lor the Maroon is far ahead as the game nears its close. The final score is 23—12. February 18th—New York U's Freshmen, hoping to start the evening auspiciously for their older brothers, rrv hard to .score on the Frosh. They come mighty close to success, too. bur finallv, co-ordinated plaving bv the Maroon quintet gives victorv, 16—15 February 25th—The Frosh from Manhattan begin well and play great basketball against Kcllehcr’s young charges. The score at the end of the first half is 7—7; apparently there is no advantage on either side, but the half ro come may tell. And how! The Maroons run away with the game in scoring twenty-one points. The gun is very welcome, for it marks the conclusion of a very successful season for the bas-keteers of 31, who in the face of a very formidable schedule lost only two games, and these by extremely close margins. W 5t 333(Erark Jake Weber Coach Arthur W O'Connor, '28 Captain Thomas P. O'Mai.i.ey, '28 Manager AT the outset of the 1928 Track season. Coach "Jake" Weber was confronted with y a truly herculean task. His team, which had been undefeated on the cinders for three years and had won scores of relay and individual titles in indoor and outdoor competition, had been seemingly shattered by the graduation of many of the star runners. The loss of such sterling men as "Johnny" Gibson, "Frank" Di Lucia. "Charley" Beagan and "Johnny" Mitchell was enough to daunt rhe most fearless. But the excellent tutelage of Coach Weber and the inspirational leadership of Captain "Artie" O'Connor brought to the fore another well balanced squad, worthy and capable of representing Fordham. The Annual Fordham Diamond Indoor Meet was once again one of the outstanding events of the season. Under the guidance of "Jake" Weber and the able arrangement of Manager "Tom O'Malley , a brilliant field of athletes afforded a large crowd of spectators many opportunities to enthuse. The feature event of the evening was once again the Half-Mile Invitation. Lloyd Hahn, the American champion, ran a brilliant race in this event, proving himself superior to such notables as "Pinkey" Sober, "Johnny" Holden. F.ddic" Swinburne and other lesser lights. In the Two-Mile Invitation, Leo Lermond, a team-mate of Hahn’s from the Boston Athletic Club, repeated his victory of the previous year when a sprinting finish brought him 334 across the tape almost a hundred yards in front of his nearest rival, ‘Ed Kirbv of the Newark A. C., who in turn defeated “Willie" Goodwin, the National Champion, at the distance, and “Bill" Cox of Penn State College, holder of many intercollegiate championships. The many relay races on the program provided many thrilling contests. New York University was supreme in the medley event, dethroning Boston College which had won the previous year. In a race at one mile. New York University scored its second victory when it defeated the newly-organized Ford ham Four in a spirited battle. Lafayette College was a contender for the greater part of the distance but was forced to be satisfied with third place by reason of “Artie" O’Connor’s great race. The other events were spiced with the speed of such men as "Bob" McAllister, "Jimmy" Burgess. "Joe" Tierney, "Bcrnic" McCaffcrty, Vincent Lally and Oliver Proud lock. All in all. ir was a meet which came up to the high standard of its predecessors—and that truly is praise! As has been the custom for many years the chief interest of the metropolitan college squads has been centered on their respective relay teams. The Maroon Four once again won the great majority of its contests, scoring their most notable victory at the Millrose A. A. games in the new Madison Square Garden before fifteen thousand spectators. This victory over their leading rival neighbors proved that "Artie" O’Connor and his ream-mates were worthy successors to the championship quartette of 1927. The relay team, with Captain O'Connor as anchor man, as made upof "Johnny" Brennan (the versatile middle-distance man), "Johnny” O’Shea and George Simons (two Sophomore "finds"). "Don" Connors and "Dick " Calnan were able alternates. But all the laurels were not won in team races. Walter Coyle, of the blond hair, and Hugh Tolc, of the red hair, in the sprints; "Julia" Durante.John Collins,"Matty" Roche, Paul Rilev and "Al" Ziegler in the longer distances; and Ralph Hutchings, "Harry" Kloppenburg, George Markcy, "Jake" Lalor and "Frank" Wearing in the field events—all garnered many points and prizes for the Maroon. Material for the future years was on view when a well balanced Freshman team was developed bv Coach Weber. With "Rav” Hurley, "Bill" McMahon, "Al” McCusker, "Johnny " Pieculewicz and others as a nucleus, the Frosh will offer many candidates for Varsity positions next year. Intercollegiate championships, tis true, arc not easily won. But with the continuance ol the present development in track ar Fordham wc may look forward to the day when in this sport as well as in basketball and baseball the Maroon will be consistently one of the leaders. Jake Weber . ..... Coach John P. Brennan, '29 .... Captain William J. Saich, '28 Manager IN keeping with t he growth of athletics at Foret ham it was decided in 1927 that cross-country should he recognized as a sport distinct from track. When the call lor candidates was issued in September, so many reported for practice that the foregoing decision was deemed a wise one. In fact, by the close of the season Coach Weber had an unusually fine squad to recommend for the minor award. C. F. C." I.cd by their captain, "Johnny ” Brennan, the Maroon harriers ran very creditably in the dual meets in which they competed, winning two out of four against worthy-opposition. The opening meet was with N. Y U. over the six-mile course at Van Cortlandt Park. The Violet humbled the Maroon, 23—32. Roth of N. Y. U. took first place in the time of 33:30. A short distance behind him came Brennan in 39:14, and Durante in 34:46. The fifth, sixth and seventh places went to New York, giving her low score and the meet. In the second meet of the season the Fordham representation easily triumphed over that of Manhattan. 18—33- The contestants labored over the Van Cortlandt 336course, and the finish of the race saw two wearers of the Maroon breast the tape simultaneously at 33:10. 'Johnny ' Brennan, who once defeated Edwin Wide in a handicap race, and his ream-mate, Durante, ran side by side for nearly the entire distance, finally crossing the line in step together. Fortier of Manhattan prevented a clean sweep for Fordhain by finishing in third place, a furlong behind the leaders. Before another Green representative appeared on the home stretch, however, four Maroon men had swept in. After two weeks of rest the cross-country team journeyed to Schenectady to participate with Union in a third dual meet The latter's powerful team proved itself to be easily superior to ours. Prior to competing against the Maroon, Union had yet to taste defeat; and she had met some of the strongest runners from the foremost colleges in the East. Hence, it was not to be wondered at that the "up-staters" won the first seven places over their six-and-fivc-ccnths mile course. The fourth and last meet of the season was a victory for Fordham. With her men finishing in the first four places she triumphed over her metropolitan rival. City College, by the score of 18—37. Captain Brennan led rhe team to success by breaking the tape in the time of 33 45- He took the lead at the start and increased it to fifty yards at the end of the first mile; at hall way he was one hundred yards ahead, and at the finish was three hundred yards in advance of his team-mates. Three of the latter tied for second place in the time of 34:41. Thirty-five yards behind them trudged Gillert of C. C. N. Y., and "Don" Connors, our fifth man, was eighth. Since they had performed rather well, in view of the circumstances and the opposition, the Maroon hill-and-dale enthusiasts decided to try their luck and strength in the Junior Metropolitan Championship Meet. Once again, Brennan finished first for Fordham in the thirty-fourth place of the meet. His time was 33 30. Durante and Collins finished second and third, respectively, for Fordham. Our team score as a whole was twro hundred and twenty-one. The men who so nobly bore the colors of their Alma Mater in cross-country were Brennan, Durante, Collins, Connors, Riley, Gaynor, Roche and Stygar. The increased interest in,and the popularity of.cross-country havebecnattributed to many causes. But whatever the cause, the fact is very gratifying. Under the guidance of Coach W'cbcr, the leadership of Captain "Johnny" Brennan and the acumen of Manager "Bill" Saich, cross-country is forging on toward its rightful place among sports at Fordham. 337Swimming Edward McDonough Coach Joseph P. Farley, ’28 Captain Thomas G. Washington, 28 Manager ALTHOUGH swimming is, comparatively speaking, in its infancy as a minor sport at Fordham, it has, nevertheless, achieved remarkable success,—and this particularly during the past season—1927-1928. When, on the fifth of November, the call for candidates was issued, eleven veterans responded. After weeks of diligent practice and assiduous conditioning, these men were at last fit to engage the opponents listed on an unusually arduous six-meet schedule. The Maroon’s ancient and honored metropolitan rivals, C.C. N. Y. and Columbia were the first to be met. and they admitted defeat only after repeated, valiant attempts to snatch a victory failed to avail them anything. In the third meet on her schedule, Fordham faced the strong, well balanced Amherst team. If she was to win, she must put forth her every effort in each event— and she did. Led by their captain, "Joe'' ("Fish") Farley, who outdid even himself in the 440 and 100 yard frec-style races, the Fordham mermen rose to speeds hitherto unattained and wove a third knot in their string of victories. 338 On the following morning, die Maroon swimmers tourneyed out to Easton, Pa., and there competed against the formidable Lafayette representation. In the very first event a poor start proved disastrous to whatever hopes of placing first in it our natators might have entertained. Though slow in getting under way, they performed credit-ablv enough to force their opponents to extend themselves for the finish. Our fast relay team, composed of Lvttlc, Hughes. Weed and Farley, was also unfortunate in rhat it lost a grueling race b the proverbial hair's breadth. Even Captain Farley was slightly off form to the extent that he suffered defeat in the century event for thefirst time in his college career. In short, the one bright Maroon spot in this meet was that reflected by the surprisingly good showing of the members of the diving unit, for they succeeded in capturing second and third places in their division. Five weeks later. New York University’s swimming ream was encountered at the pool of the Central Y. M. C A. The Maroon and Violet natators were so evenly matched that the final result of the meet was not decided until the relax event which the latter won. The 50-yard dash in particular was one which, only after the greatest difficulty and difference of opinions on the part of the judges, was awarded to New York University. Our breast-scrokers, McKernan and McGrath, though both new to Varsity competition, garnered second and third places, respectively, first place going to a powerful and experienced Violet merman. After ren weeks of intense training, during which the Maroon mermen showed great improvement, thev traveled to New Brunswick, N. J., to meet the well-nigh unconquerable Rutgers team. In the 50-vard dash, however, Weed and Lytile tinished second and third. "Fish' Farley, by sheer dogged determination, nosed out the Rutgers sprinters in the ICO and then a few minutes later duplicated his feat in the 440-yard event, beating out Djene of Rutgers by 5 yards in very remarkable time. Before the relay was due, the tension of competition was relieved bv a real comedy staged and acted by ren Rutgers dix’crs. In this skcrch, "Prof" Marquette attempted to teach Cronin (a former Fordham man) some new dives. Though Cronin proved slow to master the dives, lie did succeed in splashing most of the water oxer the s|kc-tators in his self-style "splash dive." Then the relay race took place- an event which was declared by the ludges to be one of the finest it was ever their privilege to witness. Our men, although exhausted by rhe double events in which they had participated, nevertheless pushed the Rutgers swimmers to the urmosr, and the finish lefr nothing to be desired in the way of being close. Reviewing the team as a unit, praise must be bestowed upon Fordham’s mermen, not only in the light of their victories but also in that of their manly, sportsmanlike manner of accepting defeat, only after they had given their very best for the old Maroon. And upon Coach McDonough rhe highest commendation should rest both for his efficient tutelage of the men and for his inspiring example, whether in victory or defeat. 339Thomas F. Murpiiy .... Coach Francis A. Lawless, ‘28 Manager AFTER Fordham's entry into the intercollegiate circle of boxing proved such a r huge success during the early part of March, 1927, the Athletic Association - • decided that this youngest of athletic endeavors should immediately be encouraged for the future The result was that "Harlem Tommy" Murphy once again assumed charge of the Maroon exponents of the Marquis of Queensberry's pastime. The Varsirv aspirants, numbering close on ro forry, entered inro an inrense training period in the latter part of November that they might be in the pink of condition for a schedule of live matches, representing the foremost leaders of intercollegiate boxing in the East. The schedule included meetings with Arm at West Point, Catholic University at Washington, Temple, M. I. T.. and New York University at home. The two score candidates for the Maroon team fought it out among themselves with hooks and jabs previous to the Army match, and the 21st of January witnessed the Fordham contingent arriving at West Point. The Varsity, although weakened bv the loss of such veterans of the 1927 season as "Joe" Lazarus, “Jim" McGrattan and Ralph Hutchings, because of illness, marched into the Academy's gymnasium confident of giving a good account of themselves. "Jimmy" Mazzaricllo substituted for Lazarus in the 115-pound class, only to lose by a technical knockout to Cadet Morrow. "Joe" Murphy, Fordham's representative in the featherweight division, lost a close decision to Forrest of the Army. "Andy" Piazza, the plucky little pharmacist from Fordham, lost by another technical knockout to Cadet Beattie a strong and clever member of the Army Seven. "Tom" 340 Robinson losr the decision in the welterweight division to the more experienced Army man—Gavan. Cadet Colbv in the middleweight division received a hard earned decision over rhe Maroon in the listic character of ' lack' Dorsey. "Vic" MeGrattan, a middleweight by fate, stepped into the light-heavy class, by circumstances, and proceeded to give Captain Fritzscheof the Army a beautiful and illustrative lesson in the art of self-defense. In this class, "Vie” returned Fordham the winner and saved the Varsity from what would have been a shut-out. since "Lou" Conley, substituting for Ralph Hutchings in the heavy division, lost on the count of ten to the Army "Muse" famous for punch and skill. Even though the Maroon boxers returned to old Rose Hill the victims of a 6 1 defeat, they were by no means discouraged. The next match saw "Harlem Tommy's" proteges pitted against Catholic University in the Brookland Gymnasium at Washington. The boxers of both colleges performed before forty-five hundred people the largest and most representative gathering ever to witness an intercollegiate boxing contest. The Honorable Ralph E. Updike, member of the United States House of Representatives and sponsor of a bill for the legalizing of boxing in the District of Columbia, appeared at the ringside as one of rhe official judges of the Maroon-Cardinal contest. "Spike" Webb, popular boxing coach of the U. S. Naval Academy, officiated as referee while the second judge's chair was filled by Commander O. O. Kessing—also of the Naval Academy. Mr. Charles L. Ornstcin, President of the South Atlantic A. A. U., was the official timer of the match. Both names of Fordham's leading bantams appeared on the sick list, and the Maroon was forced to forfeit the first bout of rhe C. U. match. "Joe" Murphy, in the featherweight division, lost by decision to "Micky" Maguire a promising young boxer for the Cardinals. "Battling" Bvrnc of C. U. batted away at "Andy" Piazza and was returned the winner by the judges. Captain "Dan" Grecco won his bout with "Tom ' Robinson. The score stood at 4 0 in C. U.'s favor. But now, "Jack Dorsey stepped into the ring to meet "Lou" Oros of C. U. In three rounds, "Jack" proved to be the better man and the judges awarded him a unanimous decision. "Vic" MeGrattan entered the light-heavy role once more for Fordham and for the second time in as many bouts was successful. "Vic" proved supreme in his three fast rounds with "Jack" Malevich ofC. U. Ralph Hutchings, recovering from his illness, returned to his post on the Maroon team and fought his way to a technical knockout decision over "Harry" Diggins at the end of the very first round. The Varsity mittmen returned for their three home encounters at the Fordham Gym and were welcomed bv the purchase of a beautiful ring of their own. The first home match, that with Temple University, saw the Maroon boxers in their own squared battle-ground. However, the christening was all but pleasant for the Maroon followers when the judges returned the Temple representatives the winners by a 5—2 verdict. Two more matches remain for Coach Murphy's boys and both arc expected to be close contests. The meet with M. I. T. and that with N. V. U., the last match of the 1928 season, are none too easy, and the mittmen realizing this arc striving to redeem themselves once more. This closing match of the season should prove the best of the year in intercollegiate metropolitan circles, especially since the Maroon won our over the Violet last year—four bouts to three. And Murray Israel's team-mates believe that the Violet is stronger this year, notwithstanding the fact rhar ”AI" Lassman and Szechy arc lost to the team at present. All in all, the boxing situation that was once an experiment in the history of Fordham's athletics has proved itself worthy of recognition as one of the foremost of minor sports at Fordham. The popularity of boxing places the sport beyond the experimental stage, and undoubtedly during the 1929 season Fordham should look forward to an exceptionally successful record, in view of the fact that the present squad will remain intact, save "Joe" Lazarus of Olympic renown, and "Lou" Conlev, both of whom will he lost on graduation day in June. 341iBaarliall John F. Coffey, 10 William Fr aster, '28 George L. Duggan, '28 THE Ford ham Varsity Baseball team was awarded the Metropolitan Championship in 1927 in virtue of having defeated the teams of the leading colleges and universities in New York Columbia. Manhattan, St. John's of Brooklyn, C. C. N. Y-, and N. Y. U. Although the record of the '27 team is scarcely comparable to that of its immediate predecessor, inasmuch as a metropolitan title is somewhat of lower rank than an all-Eastcrn one, it is none the less enviable. With a victory over the strong Columbia Nine the season began auspiciously enough. From the very first inning, however, as the final score, 2—1, indicates, the game was very closely contested. "Eddie' Ryan of Fordham singled very timely, chasing to home plate a fast man from third base, and so decided it. "Yinnic” Clancy, the Maroon's outstanding first baseman, headed his team-mates in hits, being credited with two. Villanova handed Fordham her first setback, and incidentally her only shut-out of the season, winning the second game on her schedule by the score of 8—0. Joe Harrington started on the mound for the Maroon, but unable to make the ball behave as ir should was retired in favor of McFIroy. He. however, experiencing the same difficulty as "Joe," gave way in turn to Roger Hanlon. 7 1 1 J T i Coach Captain ManagerVERMONT GAME ZEV BEATS THROW TO FIRST The Varsity hitters proved worthy of the name, when, emerging from their slump in the game with Vermont, they triumphed easily, scoring twenty runs. “Johnny" White, “Zev" Graham and "Vinny” Clancy contributed most of the hits, each getting three. Fordham traveled to New Haven to play Yale University and there met with her second defeat. “Bob" Cooney, her star twirlcr, unfortunately suffered from that vague but devastating affliction known as “off form" on this occasion, and “Bob," previously, hadn’t lost a game! Of course, Smith of Yale had to be in top shajxr, liis curves all but perforating our men’s bats! During the Easter vacation Fordham invaded the South with three games facing her. Two of these, however, were canceled—the one with Loyola by mutual agreement and that with Georgetown on account of rain. The third was with the United States Naval Academy and constituted another victory for the Maroon. Though the lartcr scored six runs she hit safely only twice, while the Navy touched Harrington and Cooney for ten hits, and yet could tally only one run. Truly that was an odd game! No sooner was the team back from its trip South than it undertook a journey to the Northern regions of New York State—to have weather unfavorable to ballplaying overtake it, and in consequence the games scheduled with Colgate and Cornell were unplaved. The rest, however, was much needed and of such benefit that when the next game that with New York University—took place, the members of the team played with renewed vigor and zest, proving themselves superior to the Violet Nine in the crucial moments of the game and finally winning by the narrow margin of one 0TIA 343run. Harrington and Cooncv shared honors on the mound and Ryan again led the Maroon batters with two hits. The University of Virginia on her Northern trip now met “Jack” Coffey's charges and humbled them by the store of four runs to two. The one bright Maroon spot in this game appeared in the ninth inning, when with two out Billy Byrne, substituting for Clancy at first base, smashed out a homer. It took Fordham all of ten innings to win over Providence College, but in that extra inning her representatives batted five clean hits which brought in three runs and ended the game. This was the Maroon's first shut-out victory, and to Roger llanlon went the honor of having pitched it in his initial appearance as a full-fledged Varsity hurlcr. On the second lap of her Eastern campaign the Maroon administered to the Purple one of the most thorough trouncings that it was ever that proud color's unfortunate lot to experience. The score was eight runs for Fordham to one for Holy Cross. Cooney pitched fine ball for the former and was stanchly supported by Bill" Fcastcr catcher. "Zc Graham led in hitting, getting three "blows" off Fons alone. Its winning streak snll holding good, the Maroon ream now crushed the Univer-sn of Delaware, 19 1 “Phil" Licbl starred for Fordham, playing heady baseball both in the field and behind the bat. His pci pole, moreover, contributed three hits to the grand Fordham total, and sponsored bv so doing four runs. With two men retired in the eleventh inning of the Fordham-Princeton game. Steward, a pinch-hitter for the Tigers, connected with one of Cooney’s slants for a double, scoring Slagle and winning the game, 2 1. "Bob'' pitched a great game, hut his team-mates were exceptionally weak in hitting. "Johnny" White was the only man to get two hits, and LiebI and Ryan each got one. Fordham won her third straight game against a metropolitan team by defeating St John's College of Brooklyn, 7—I. "Zcv" Graham was the barring hero of rhe day with three safe hits to his credit out of four times at bat. "Bill Fcastcr, too, contributed his share of the barrage of hits with two clean singles. Still smarting from a 5 -0 shut-out at '‘Johnny’’ Dwyer’s hands, the year before, BostonCollcgc downed Fordham at Boston, 4—1. "Joe" Harrington relieved Cooney in the fourth inning and held the Boston team scoreless for the remainder of the game. In a hotly-fought game, the Maroon nosed out Catholic University, 2 0. George Sheflott and "Johnny" Murphy were largely responsible for the victory. Murphy's double in the fourth scored White, ”VIN" CLANCY "ZEV" GRAHAM 344and in the ninth Graham crossed the home plate on Shellott's single. Dartmouth came from behind to overcome a two-run lead and scored seven runs to Fordham's live. Feaster, Graham and Licbl proved to be a veritable "Murderers' Row" in this game. Feastcr was in the van with three hits while Licbl and Graham shared four between them The tenth inning of the Rutgers-Fordham game-saw Licbl pole our a long drive to center and reach third before the ball was thrown back to the diamond. This good example was straightway followed by "Johnny” Whicc who doubled over second, scoring "Phil" and putting a ruthless end to the Scarlet s hopes. The Maroon next subdued C. C. N. Y., 11 3- Hanlon and Murphy worked on the mound with Feaster receiving. Egan, Clancy and Feastcr starred for Fordhum in both fielding and hitting. The annual Fordham-Gcorgctown game at Fordham ended with the former on the long end of a 4 3 score. This victory marked the Maroon's twelfth of the season. "Bullet Joe" Harrington in excellent form tamed Georgetown’s sluggers, yielding only four hits. The other half of the barrery. Bill' Fcasrcr, played his usual good game behind the bat. "Bob" Cooncv pitched his third consecutive shut-out when he humbled the highly-touted New York University Nine. The final score was 5 0. Besides hurling such air-tight ball, Cooncv helped to increase the score by crashing out two sizzling singles. In the game with Manhattan College the Maroon players were at their best. Harrington pitched for Fordham and allowed only four of the Green men to hit. Fordham's big inning was the sixth. Liebl singled, and scored on Graham s homer. "Babe" Egan tripled, and raced home on a double from Murphy's bat. "Vinny" Clancy starred in the field, accepting twelve chances without an error. By winning from the New York Athletic Club, 3 L Fordham extended her winning streak to six straighr victories. Murphy pitched great ball for the .Ylaroon, allowing the Winged Foot players but three hits. Fordham's chance for evening things with Boston College was lost when the last remaining game of the season was called off because of inclement weather. Before writing "finis’’ to the account of the varying fortune which crowned the efforts of the 1927 baseball team we think it fitting to mete out deserving praise to those who, though not regulars on the nine, reported without fail every day for practice, "doing 345 "BILL" BYRNE "PHIL" LIEBLN.

Even “Johnny” Dwyer, the captain, though his arm was no longer physically able to manifest its mastery over the horsehide, was regularly seen on the field, ever willing to aid Coach Coffey and ro give constructive criticism and timely advice to the players.

O'Brien, '28 ........ Manager TENNIS still holds Its prominent position in the college's athletic world as one of die leading minor sports, by reason of its very successful season last year. The racket men enjoyed the most satisfactory campaign of any Maroon squad, turning in a record of seven victories and but one lone defeat. The only setback encountered by the squad, captained by "Gene” McCauliff for the second time, was at the hands of the University of Pennsylvania in the very first match of the season. After this first match the team met and defeated successively seven other opponents by playing a great brand of tennis. Dartmouth, Columbia, Holy Cross, Rurgcrs, New York University and Sainr Stephen's, all had rheir crests lowered by the Maroon courtmen Incidentally, the Saint Stephen's team was defeated in both matches of a homc-and-home series. The fact that the tennis team is without the services of a coach probably accounts lor us failure to rank among the highest in collegiate circles. Though every man on the team is a sterling player he has not the advantage of having an older and more experienced man near at hand to offer the advice so necessary to the attainment of the heights possible in the tennis world these days. That Fordham has the material is evident from the individual records of the season. Each member of the team won more singles than he lost, accounting in this manner for a good many of the match victories. Captain McCauliff triumphed in 348every singles match in which he participated during the season and, alter the schedule was completed, paired with “Tom" Donohue, proceeded to annex rhe Eastern Intercollegiate Doubles Championship for Ford ham, bestowing on her her lirst major tennis title. In the course of the stellar role that was McCaulilT's in the many matches on the schedule he defeated players of the caliber of "Johnny " Millcn of Penn, Melvin Partridge of Dartmouth and Malcolm McClay of Columbia. Not once during the season was McCaulilf forced to three sets in any match. Charles ("Chick”) McCarthy, 28, also won every match in the singles during the regular season. "Chick" had won five matches and was leading his opponent from Holy Cross when a sudden downpour of rain caused the abandonment of play. "Harry" King, '29, won six of his eight matches and was one of the steadiest players on the squad. Thomas Donohue, '28, “Fred" Meyer, '29, Daniel Dalcv, '28, and "Jerry" Keresy, '28, were the remaining members of Fordham s outstanding tennis team. During 1927, Robert J. Hein, '28, was rhe manager of the squad. With every man of the 1927 team returning for the present campaign and with good material coming up from the Freshman team there should be another fine season this spring. Captain McCauliff was voted rhe captaincy for the third rime, and will in all probability make his last appearance for Fordham his most signal one. William F. O'Brien, '28, is the manager-elect lor the ensuing year. He has succeeded in making up the mosc attractive schedule that the Maroon has ever displayed, and to him goes the prestige of having introduced the first extended trip for the team.

"MAX"JlitsptrrDi hg the fflilhi iijntd WE were sitting in the lohhv of the Mills, listening to the strains of the tea music being waited to our cars (each using his respective ears, reading from left to right) from the string ensemble in the Della Vermin room. A word might be said of the efficient method by which strains (also sprains and bruises, occasionally) arc wafted in the Mills. Each strain is caught by a white-coated attendant as it flits from the strings of the violinists' ukclcles. By means of a special strain-apprehendcr (a nickel-plated instrument which resembles nothing so much as a combination caliper and ice-tongs), the strains arc grasped firmlv bv the arpeggio (not an anatomical term) while still slightly warmand arc deftly dipped into a tepid solution of lilac water and Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Treatment (a corkscrew in every hot tie). For the dipping process, special attendants are employed. At the Mills (which manages to combine the utmost in homelike atmosphere and ornate cuspidors) only Algerians who have not been photographed in scenes of French Foreign Legion Motion Pictures arc permitted to perform this painstaking task. When one considers the paucity of Algerians who have still maintained their amateur standing, one must conclude that the Mills spares no expense in obtaining for its patrons the demur cri (French) in genteel appointments. Algerians as a race arc especially fitted for the task of dipping objects that require deft dipping. Their mode of life which, sav what you will, you Fixits! they have inherited from their ancestors long removed, requires that they be deft in dipping for fear of wetting their fingers. Were an Algerian to wet his person (Ego) he would be apt to lose some of the protective covering of desert si I r which he has acquired by long years of abstinence from ablutions. Do not be led to think that Algerians arc suffering from hydrophobia hydro water, phobia seared as h—1), for "washing is not in harmony with their nature." (Cf., Ivan Itchibak.)

The foundations ol their business were established just under the roof. Ovens were set up in the top floors of their tall bakeries. Sunlight became a common ingredient in every one of the hundreds ot Sunshine products. Sunshine Bakers, among the first, brought an end to dungeon baking. These are the things we try to tell you with our name “ Sunshine.” These are the things we try to tell you with our advertising phrase "Thousand Window Bakeries."

There arc many who find real pleasure in their work, a pleasure born of fascinating interest in the attainment of definite results. Even the printing business has its bright spots, and one of our bright spots this year is the printing of the 1928 Maroon. We have thoroughly enjoyed our contact with the members of the Maroon Staff. They have done good work. They have created a book that abounds with interest and is a decided credit to Fordham University. Perhaps the pleasure they found in their work is responsible for this meritorious achievement. But surely they must realize a vast amount of pleasure in the result.
