Brock Treasurer IT docs not seem four years since most of us were herded into the Auditorium for the first time; indeed, wc can still remember Fr Deane’s lirst kindly greeting to us. Even more clearly can we recall the lively welcome we received from the men of '28. in which they wrought better than they knew, bv bringing to the fore Ralph Bacon and LaPorte. Happy days were those of Freshman; days in which the warm Ford ham spirit instilled in us by our elders began slowly to bear fruit in deeds of promise. Onto the football held, "Tubby" Bcloin. John Smith and Al Politis charged forth at the first call. On the court. Adams, Dougherty, Landers. Swcetman, Reardon and Politis Hashed a form that bed a . .led their opponents. A little group ol Freshmen banded quietly together to form the first Quill Club, and a greater number enlisted in the Forum. February brought ro Fordham its first mid-year entrance class, welcome comrades ro their fellow Freshmen and yet more welcome victims to the zealous Sophomores. Tom Collins, F.d McNally, and Jack Carroll earned their first academic victory for Fordham, as debaters from the Forum, while Dick Ncvin scintillated 26behind the footlights in the Varsity production of "Pals First." To prove the wizardry of the Freshman basketball five truly representative, another Freshman quintet captured the interclass title. In the Freshman One-Act Play contest, Dick Nevin and Walter Hopkins sustained dual roles as author and actor; Dick's play was adjudged best, with Walter's second. Jim McGuire turned in the best acting of the evening, and Nevin pursued his winning ways by finishing second. With the summer came vacation for most, while a memorabh pleasant summer session enabled the February section to begin Sophomore on an even footing. September provided the eventful days of the Vigilance Committee, exercising tender solicitude for the incoming Frosh. At the same time, Fr. Duane inaugurated the R. O. T. 0. with a stirring speech; and forthwith, we gained the happy vision of Earl Evans and Jerry Maher, together, in uniform. Joe Hopkins. Ward Clarke and John Carroll began writing for the Monthly, of whose business staff Jim McCarthy was already a member. Gripp, Walsh, and Scully on the gridiron swelled the ranks of our prominent athletes, while the matchless Freshman quintet of the year before contributed nobly to the success of the Varsil) five. Jimmy Higgins, the doughty politician, succeeded Joe Walsh as Class President. The friendship of the new Freshman Class was early evidenced, by a highly successful smoker tendered to us. San-sonc and Dorsey were among our representatives on the first boxing team, and Adams, Crozier. Travers, Rooney and Lachnict competed for Ford ham in the tank. The interclass champion five of the year before repeated its victory in decisive fashion. With the advent of the baseball season, the bats and flashing spikes of Egan, Coleman. Landers, Walsh and Cobb, and the sturdy arms of Cooney and Murphy did much to further the success of the Varsity aggregation. All the while, McCarron. Coan, Adams, Whalen and Evans were busily engaged in chronicling news developments for the Raw. Outstanding among the social events of the year was the Class dance at the Ambassador. This came under the watchful supervision of George O’Grady, whose deft touch on the piano had already done so much to enhance the efforts of the Glee Club. The Council of Debate brought its season to a fitting close by the choice of John Carroll as Vice-President, and of Jim McCarthy as Treasurer, for the year to come. Once more the summer’s heat broke in upon the routine life of the College; but swiftly the weeks sped by. and soon we were Juniors. First claim upon our interests now went to the queen of sciences, whose study we were to pursue lor the two years remaining. The new Biology Building facing Fordham Road became the scene of our labors; and how many a "cur" was saved by the splir second less, that ir rook to reach it from "L" or subway! The Mass of the Holy Ghost, which formally opened the year, was made memorable for us as the occasion of the golden jubilee of the lovable Fr. Martin. Don Connors, Vice-President of Sophomore days, now succeeded to the post of President of Junior. George O’Gradv was chosen Chairman of the Prom committee, and Dick Nevin Chairman of the ring committee. Football and basketball brought the old stars in more prominent roles, and under Captain Frank Dougherty, the Varsity five enjoyed a remarkable season, dropping but a single game, and that by a one-point margin. Meanwhile, in November, came the minor logic specimen. There followed the production of "Richelieu," in which John Carroll, as the King, was superb. Christmas came and went, and suddenly, almost without warning, it was the evening of the Prom! A brilliant, dazzling evening was this, an evening of stirring music, of wildly beating hearts, in the beautiful setting of the Bihmorc Cascades, an evening of sparkling memories, never to be forgotten. A group of excellent productions featured the one-act play contest, with Don Ryan, Ed Coan, John Carroll, and Don Connors among the authors. Carroll’s "Release" was chosenas che best play, and John added considerably to his laurels Ln winning recognition also for the best acting. The Council of Debate established an enviable record during the year, and among the Varsity debaters were the three 'Macs''—McNally. McAulcv and McCarthy Jack Carroll and Jim Higgins. McCarthy was the victor in Fordham's oratorical contest, and Carroll represented us in the National Intercollcgiarc competition. The call for the diamond squad brought out, besides the other veterans, "Leftv Hal" McAulcv, and Dinnv Reardon, who suddenly developed a penchant for breaking up ball games. Ed McNally was chosen Editor-in-Chief of the Maroon, and Ed selected Harold Callahan as his Business Manager. The last of the year's written exams passed into history, and soon it was time for the orals. Who can forget the tense anxiety of that last-minute suspense, the awful slowness of those ten long minutes of questioning, and the rush of surprise and relief, when it was all over? Now it was the nineteenth of September, and we returned as Seniors. Falling heirs to the same good fortune had by the Class preceding, we found that our professors were to be. for psych, Fr. Murphy, and for ethics, Fr. Fasv. From the beginning of the year, we stood forth eagerly, to fill our rightful places, as leaders of the College. On the gridiron, "Tubby" Beloin, Captain Smith. Politis, Walsh and Scully made an inspired last stand for the Maroon, and Beloin received a fitting tribute in the "most valuable player" award. In the Monthly office, Joe Hopkins as Editor-in-Chief, and Jim McCarthy as Business Manager, found responsibility a sweet burden, while Lcs Atwell, John Carroll and Hal McAuley brightened the pages of each issue and Dick Nevin perpetrated a lively, zestful antidote. Bob McCarron presided over the destinies of the Ram; Hal McAuley wrote striking editorials; Cas Adams filled a difficult sports column capably; Ed Coan provided a fine brand of humor; Artie Crozicr and Ed Whalen helped keep the ball rolling, while the diminutive Earl Evans saw that everybody got a copy. John Carroll wielded a potent gavel, as President of the Council of Debate; Jim McCarthy, Don Connors and Jerry Maher filled other offices in the organization. With the veteran debating team of junior days augmented by Collins, Maher and Rooney, the traditional Fordham success in this field was ably maintained. Members of the R. O. T. C. blossomed forth in full officers’ regalia, and the "little Napoleon,' Earl Evans, shone with especial brilliance. The Quill Club instituted in Freshman was now full grown, a completely representative College society, with first Jim Altieri and later Joe Hopkins at its head. The Mimes and Mummers had for President. Dick Nevin, for Vice-President, Hal McAulcv, and for Secretary, Frank Cronin. Jack Carroll was Chairman, Don Connors and Collins, Rooney members, of its directorial board. Chairman of rhe board for the Glee Club was George O'Gradv; and among his associates were Dick Nevin and Hal McAuley. Higgins, head of the Athletic Association, was assisted by Vice-President Frank Clark, George O’Gradv, Secretary, and Pisani, McCarthy, MeAloon, Lane, Crozier and Mista among the Managers of sports. As they came around for the last time, all the routine events of the scholastic year bore a special solemnity for us In the performance of "Othello," Collins Roonev made a singularly convincing lago, and Ed Clement as Desdonuna was equally good. Ed McNally, Hal McAuley and Larrv Brock filled other roles in like manner. The closing days of December found all of us pacing about the campus with the tortured look that betokened a forthcoming inquisition. However, after the first philosophy exams were presented to us, and we found ourselves equal to them, our sclf-contidcncc rose mightily, and we departed for the Christmas vacation with happy hearts. Yet the festival spirit of the holiday season was soon tempered by rhe sadness of a great loss. When, on December twenty-third, Father Fasv departed to his eternal reward, the class lost an eloquent, sincere and energetic professor, and every Senior lost a 28! friend. On our return, a change of classroom brought our whole membership together as a unit for the first time. In the new quarters, a long room on the lower floor of the Administration building, the first week was devoted wholly to psychology, after which Fr. Ignatius Cox took over the ethics course, and the normal routine of the curriculum was restored. Meanwhile, bo Adams, Nick Landers, Pop Swcctman and Dan Reardon, under the inspired leadership of Frank Dougherty, piled up an impressive record on the court, to finish champions of the Fast Johnny Brennan, veteran cross-country captain, did some fine running in company with Don Connors, our Class President extraordinary. The marksmanship of Jerry Maher and Manager Sam Bacon aided in the success of the rifle team. Dick Nevin's rich voice rang out in pleasing solos for the Glee Club, and Don Ryan, James Glashccn and George O’Grady in the orchestra helped to swell the notes of festivity at various campus affairs. At the Sodality Convention late in February, Jim Higgins, President of the Harvester club, Joe Fitzhcnry, Ed McNally and Jim McCarthy were spokesmen for the Fordham sodalists. The one-act play contest began the eventful month of March in fitting style. Don Ryan's "Rhythm of the City” was chosen as the best play, while Hal McAuley was recipient of the first prize for acting. John Carroll, Hal McAuley and F.d Corliss were among the authors; Moriarty, Quinn, Higgins and Walter Hopkins played various roles successfully, and Collins Rooney was director of two plays. In the annual oratorical contest were entered John Carroll and Jim McCarthy. Carroll emerged the victor. Ed McNally, Richard Kennedy, Dave Bannon, Douglas Hennessey, and Joseph S. Murphy participated in the public philosophical disputation in the week following. The call of spring sports brought out Egan, Murphy, Cooney, Cobb, Walsh, Coleman and McAuley on the diamond. King on the racquet squad, and Walter Smith, Lalor and C.rozicr among the divot diggers. The year is all but ended. We now look forward to those most solemn moments of our College life—Commencement, and parting. These have been happy days together, in the sheltering arms of a beloved Alma Mater; and though eager to go forth, to further Fordham's glory elsewhere, we are yet saddened at leaving her so soon. 29FRANK R.

No one of Fordham’s sport enthusiasts needs introduction to “Ho." Ever since Freshman, he has formed an integral part of the most brilliant basketball team in the East and “Bo's" uncanny caging ability has made him a stumbling block in the path of ambitious opponents. Basketball has not been “Bo's" only held of endeavor. In Freshman, his sporting propensities found outlet in football and baseball while his scholastic arramments have kept his place in that held secure. With all the popularity and honor that has been showered upon him, Frank never became a victim of his own self importance. Always a genial, pleasant, and well-versed student, he has been a decided asset to oui Class and no doubt, wherever he may continue his preparation for Medicine, his personality will win for him the same universal favor that it has at Fordham. 31w.

The ch.inmnr, resonance of his voice still echoes in our ears. We hark to his spontaneous chattering. We smile at his lazy, sophisticated witticisms. We glow at the sound of his free, ringing laughter. Visualize for yourself this versatile classmate. Picture again the lank figure cramped in the torturous confines of an A. A. office. Perceive the veteran of a score of Varsity talk encounters. Smile benignantly on the perfect figure on the dance floor. Clever, original, inimitable "Cas"—his gay, careless repartee was providential on a hundred gloomy days. The memory of it will be cherished in the years to come. V.■ Jim” is a clever fellow of a rather serious turn of mind, there being no shallowness in his make-up. So much assures us of his effectiveness in undertaking studies— his social success is assured by his happy gift of adaptability. Whenyouarespeakingaloneto”Jiin,”whenthcco»versaiio» is of a serious character, he delights you with his fine, sincere, and worthy ideas; when it is light-veined, he can chide and jibe with the best of us. Whenever he joins a group of fellows he readily adjusts himself nicely to their mood, whatever it lx-. So that "Jim" is what is known as a good mixer, possessing all the requisite elements of the essence of friendliness. He has won many friends who all believe him destined for the happy laurels of success. IJack is a fellow with whom you can't help but he friends. He believes that friendship is a sacred thing and its bond should not be severed hastily, Everyone knows of his close association with Bo" Adams and he never tires of watching his pal show the opposition how to play basketball. Jack" came from De Witt Clinton High and he brought his talents along with him. The members of the Mendel Club will never forget the wonderful banquet which he and "Tom" La Porte arranged. That was one enjoyable evening and we will always rhank "jack" for his part in it. jack is modest to a fault However, if you impress the world as you have impressed your classmates, Jack, vou will have nothing to vvorrv about. I i I Two years ago there came from Holy Cross, without am flight of the imagination for a reason, rhe man we have found to he as we would want him. He came hearing gifts—charm of personality, sociability, scholastic attainment, hut rarest of all, an understanding heart. He found philosophy to his taste and mastered it as he has mastered everything to which he has turned his attention Now he leaves us and bears away our gifts—gifts of friendship and fond memory, of philosophy and fare well. As you go, "Andy,” we wish vou all the luck in the world, a wee hit more than confident that in you our heartiest wishes will find their fulfillment, our hopeful dreams their fondest realization.You can r judge a hook by irs cover. In some eases this is true. But with "Eddie' we .uc convinced that the smiling countenance that is constantly beaming upon us, in giving sign of the cheerful, vivacious character within, tells a blessed truth. As long as we can remember, "Eddie" has been chasing the "blues" with wit and anecdotes—with a brand of humor that is distinctly his own. He takes a particular delight in teasing Barney Schmidt and time and again we have seen him completely disarm Barney in a fiery word duel. Modest, sincere, highly capable in many lines, "Eddie" is an example ol the ideal temperament the refreshing combination ol scholar and comrade. We are confident that nothing but success awaits him as a teacher, and we express our sincere hope that the future will find for him the same happiness that has accompanied our memorable friendship at Old Rose Hill.

In this latter class. Lester belongs. For not only can he keep a group of listeners delighted with the shafts of his mordant, nonchalant wit, but he himself finds his greatest delight in this game of repartee Always are his remarks without acidity, nor does the subject satirized ever fail to join in the merriment. This rare gift of wit appears the more remarkable in the light of his accompanying talents. He seems to be one who "lisped in numbers," for his easy-flowing verses crowd the Monthly; his cleverly apt brush has adorned the Maroov art pages. As you may well imagine, he is a companion among companions. Therefore, our steps, as we choose our separate ways, arc the more markedly hesirant But we hasten to adjoin the hope. "Les," that in after days our paths may cross frequently and our hearts may be forever twain. 37School would seem to start in an irregular or uninteresting way if. in the morning before the day’s grind, we did not encounter the affable countenance of this well-liked young man. Herman desires to follow the held of education, arabitioning to become a professor. We have no doubt as to his success for whenever we had occasion to need help in math, Inch u as quite often, we were sure to find quick and correct answers to our problems in consultation with this wizard of figures. Not only is Herman a proficient mathematician. but he is also quite a student in the realms of chemistry. We found this proficiency after a bit of our own research work, because Augic" is too quiet and unassuming to let this fact be known to others than his immediate classmates. So. in the future, we expect to hear of our protege striving with all his ability to complete the l est and most adequate course for his own pupils at Fordham. 38A four-year acquaintance with in leads us to believe that he has succeeded exceptionally well in heightening the favorable impression which his predecessors from the northern regions of the State have created. Being of a rather retiring disposition, "Yin" is a quiet fellow whose speech tends toward the judicious brevity of quality rather than quantity. Because of this, he was one of the fortunate few who could enter a classroom with ears, not tongue, poised for action. Yet whatever "Yin" might have lacked in words was excellently remedied by his genial, ever-present smile. Then too, his keen eye for details, another of "Viii's" valued possessions, reminds 11s that success favors those who watch the little things as well as the big. 39I CHARLES F. BACHMANN, A.B. "Charlie” 1 orJhain Preparatory School D.j) StuJtnn' Sodahri, , 2, }, 4 Fmb man QwAtt Plays Freshman Workshop I From a long line of Bachmanns, “Charlie” came. Yet we would not say he had a " line." There is no pretense about this fellow, no camouflage of fact, no secrecy of personality. There is not even time enough in his busy day to devise and utilize such diverting tactics. And because he was so evident to us, perhaps we failed fully to appreciate his good and rugged qualities. Winter sunlight on delicate china! Of reflection, wisdom is born, as we know. “Charlie” is the serious type serious over his syllogisms, serious in his social aspirations, serious in his humor, and serious in the arts he loves and appreciates. We shall rcmcmbcr‘‘Charlic”for all these things because they entered and controlled our relations with him, and with these finely-drawn precepts, we arc sure that he i will find the high road of accomplishment and traverse it with a becoming ease. 40RALPH HOYT BACON, A.B.

The fading sunlight of later days may dim the luster of many episodes of our lives ac Fordham bur none of us can ever forget the unending activity which made Ralph the famous character we all know and like. Along whatever lines the heated waves of controversy would run, Ralph was sure to be found in the thickest of the fray ready at all times to champion the cause of the weaker. The test of his valor is to be found in the beacon light of his political convictions, since Ralph courted the countless thrusts of his colleagues by his rigorous campaign for rhe tenets of Republicanism. As a debater he often rocked the Council with the thunder of his eloquence and as a sharpshooter he brought home the bacon on more than one occasion. For Ralph we have no fears—to him we accord a place in the lavender of our affections with the firm conviction that he will have nothing to fear when he steps from the frying pan of college days into the fire of life.SAMUEL FREDERICK BACON.

"Sam First, Icr us pause in brief appraisal of the "student." The designation probably sits more easily upon his brow than upon many another, for we have known "Sam" through four years' astounding exhibition of the most profound scholarship, wherein he has excelled beyond the fondest hope which was probably held for him as the possessor of two honorariums. "Sam" has been a class leader from first to last and with the passing of the seasons, his superb intelligence has only flowered the more. Then as the debater he has weathered many a stormy session within the charged walls of the Council, rocmcrge at the end of Senior with the natural and acquired wiles of a Webster. For "Sam " the sharpshooter, we claim that same meticulous precision which meant so much to "Sam" the scholar. And for "Sam" the friend, we present the proud testimonials of our fortunate brethren who basked within the circle of his intimacy. VaU% with little wonder in our voices, for wc feel assured that success will be your crown. 42Perhaps it's merely a coincidence that the Maroon of Fordhain is mirrored in the red flainc of "Baff's” hair. Anyhow the union between the two is more real than fanciful and it will he difficult to sever reminiscent thoughts of Fordhum from those of "Frank." who could always be found in the stands, cheering the Varsity team on to victory. The vivid color of Frank's” hair he just won't wear a hat) is not the only striking feature of the man. To those lew who know him intimately the thought cannot but occur, that his aptitude for making friends, his loyalty to his comrades, and his easy-going nature will win him the esteem of his fellowmen in later life as it has at Ford ham. 4)George's most outstanding characteristics arc geniality and good nature. Hurry has never found its dreary way into his life. Perhaps it is this quality that makes George the perfect companion for any occasion. He is one of the lovalest sons of Old Rose Hill. There is not a function from football trip to Junior Prom, from One-Act Play Contest to Glee Club Concert, which is not livened by his welcome presence. During those depressing moments just prior to the Orals or Ontology quizzes, how many hearts have been lifted and flagging spirits revived by George's unfailing gotxl humor and confidence! We take leave of you. George, confident that the future will hold all the happiness and laughter that you brought to all who knew you at Fordham.“ QUOP facts, bun fac" seems to be ■Dave’s’ guiding principle, livery thing he docs is done well, whether it is a physics experiment or an analysis of a thesis in philosophy. In "Dave” Bannon, we have that oft-mentioned, hut rarely found, individual, a scholar and a gentleman. After our four-years’ acquaintance with him, we unhesitatingly place him in rhar select category. Indefatigable energy, efficiency, and conscientiousness in the performance of all tasks, combined with his natural aptitude, have made him a model student; sincerity of character and consideration for others make him an inspiring and lovable gentleman. If the past is any indication of the future, and it is, "Dave” will surely be eminently successful in whatever he undertakes. 45A.

Some time ago. by what hit of good fortune we know not. the class was appraised of the qualities of leadership to be found in "Sid" Barritt and since that time, he has been intrusted with commissions of great import. Combining the virtues of scholastic acumen, with no suggestion of pedantry, a finely-wrought business sense, and an abounding good-humored fellowship, "Sid" has steadily advanced along the lines of mosr resistance the path to achievement. From the first, it was seen that Sid" was destined to accomplish great things during his undergraduate days and this prediction of ours was consummated in his financial venture with the Junior Prom -of happy memory to the entire class. We who have been blessed with his friendship look with pride to the future that awaits him. for we are assured of another leader carrying on the noble tenets of Alma Mater.! Walter’s demeanor has been so marked by scholarly reserve and his social actions have been so poised and polished, that we have come to regard him as the long lost "gentleman and scholar!" His presence was always regarded as a thing by which any host might be honored. It has been told that he was sought after socially more often than studies permitted him to be found. Perhaps it is in part due to Walter's appreciation of the scholastic method which enabled him to distinguish between scholastic and social obligations in so orderly a fashion. Such habits of intelligent action should assure Walter’s success. 47JOSEPH RAYMOND BAUER, A.B. "Joe” Brooklyn Preparatory School Hartater Club, ), 4 "R.trn," 1, 2 A young nun walking up Fordham's well-known, elm-lined path shortly before nine o clock in the morning is by no means a rare sight, but it would be worth your while to watch for our Joe" as he strides along. For he holds himself with the proud and militant bearing of the Seventh Regiment and springs along with the lithe step of the track man. Joe never tried to improve upon the pace ol college life. We could usually find him sitting back sagely amid a circle ol the boys, preserving a well-modulated laugh for the cracks" that go their way around the campus. A scat in a "bull session" is Joe's" idea of the greatest definite assurance of a pleasant afternoon. Here, "Joe" has held several positions of trust. We expect some day to find that he has won another such position high in the business world. 4SSAMUEL IRWIN BAZIL. B.S. "Sam” Torrington High School Frtthm tn Fortti i Boxing, 2 although coming from the small town of Torrington. Conn., there is nothing lx. small-town about Sam." He was one of us right from the start and could not be distinguished from any men from our big city except by his own superior qualities. In him one can see immediately the "go-getter," full of determination and grit He is outspoken and straightforward and many's the time that his directness brought a laugh from the throats of the class. It cannot be said of him that lie is a bookworm, vet we do not mean that he docs not study when necessary. His ready good cheer made him popular with all and kept his association pleasant throughout our four years at Fordham. 49amont. rhc contributions of ’29 to Fordham’s Hall of Fame we find "Tubbv." a- Athlete, scholar, and all-around good fellow, "Tubby” has won an enviable place m the esteem of the class. Of course, his most famous endeavor is football. There is a dash and color to "Tubby’s” game that makes him not only the great tackle but the popular favorite as well. It seems that the enjoyment of any game depends in greae part whether " Tubby’s' in "or ' Tubby's’ out." His clean tackling and knifing line bucks arc but a part of his greatness, cvcr-happy mannerisms and spirited words arc the tics with which he holds the heart of all Fordham. We may be selfishly inclined but there is a great deal of pride in say ing that "Tubby " is particularly ours. Other classes have admired and cheered him, but to the Seniors he has faithfully tilled the role of gentleman and friend with a kindliness of disposition and staunchness that cannot fail him when he tackles the next formidable line of his choice. 50LOUIS BERMAN, B.S. "Lou" He Win Clinton High School Bexirtg Iou" is the compact little member of the science section who has been an active ■ member of the class during its four-year stay on the campus. We can remember far back in our Freshman days in chcm lab when "Lou s' first attempts at experimentation showed him there was more 10 it than a handful of sodium and a bottle of HNOj. But after the smoke of the first explosions had cleared away, and "Lou" had found it advisable to park his person behind a rubber apron, rubber gloves and four layers of asbestos, the real chemical analysis began until Junior. Dr. Bachrach often went into consultation with "Lou" behind closed doors. What involved graphical formulas were worked out there is beyond the imagination of the lav student. But from current reports we learn that since "Lou's ad cnt to inorganic lab, the quota of broken bottles for the Doctor's inner sanctum has increased alarmingly. "Lou” maintains the cause is involved scientific research, while the Doctor is becoming silent. 51Wi: were very much afraid that "Bill” was one of those Sophists that we heard so much about in Freshman. But. if so, we have all been for four years baffled in our attempt ro find the hidden fallacy. He seems to be so regularly right that his habit is annoying. He is the suave and polished gentleman of the town, who looks about and registers the follies and foibles of mankind; and, though he may partake of them himselfat times,we always feel thata minor divinity has stooped. For 'Bill's" motto we offer the following — trite, but we think, apt ' Sum ter in wodo. " Always polite, unruffled, above annoyance, he goes about with pleasant face and appraising satiric eye. quick to sec the ridiculous, bur slow to denounce it. 1 52From Flarbush every morning and never late,” was "Jack’s record. Such constancy need be given notice before we even attempt to sav any more. Ir we stopped here, you could gather just what type of a man is this "Jack from across the river, in the City of Churches. But we came to know “Jack" even a bit more, as one friendly, cheerful and unassuming. From one so robust, one might expect to hear a little more. "Jack" is not exactly overweight but big enough to bear our the age-old adage, “Fat people are pleasant company." And there were few affairs, scholastic or social, which “Jack" did not grace with his presence; from the gridiron at Worcester to the polished floors of the Biltmore Cascades. It is even rumored that "Jack" came of a night out of Flathush to attend the debates. Jack" was truly a man of Fordham affairs. 531r wc were to say only this, John Brandon, Student," we would have the picture. In him, we have an inspiring and an inspired example of a fellow who has found the open sesame" to Knowledge. Yet "Jack" docs not clutch this password to himself in secrecy, for he lives it before our eyes. However, it must not be inferred that "Jack is the personification of seriousness itself He holds in the depths of his heart a brimming humor. Who can forget his portrayal of the mining prospector in "Ol Womanish?" Who can recall without a thrill of admiration the types he played on the stage,and the man he was with us?He is " Jack' Brandon, Student and Humorist." t 54JOHN PATRICK BRENNAN.

Captain, 4 Whatever track laurels have descended on Ford ham's brow in the past four years have been largely the results of Jack's' splendid clloias To our regret, rhe applause and renown that falls to the lot ol our football heroes is not always shared bv the disciples of Mercury, but so consistently has "Jack upheld Fordham's fame on the cinder path that he was elected Captain of both track and cross country, and the latter for three years! Beside athletic prowess John possesses remarkable mathematic talent. With Mr. Tynan and his coterie, he may be seen descending into the bowels of the earth, learning to track down earthquakes rhrough rhe bewildering and intricate instruments in our scismological station. "Jack" has prepared to enter the teaching profession, where his training and nat ural talents will undoubtedly assure him of success. 55L rry is an argument in himself. He is one of the most convincing proofs we ' know for the many popular platitudes on personality. If he is not the first cause for "the man with the smile" and "he'll get by," we do not know who is. Not that he is dashing, for he is quiet, not that he is given to m.inv words, lor his speech is well controlled; nor rh.it he is hilarious, for we know him best by his winsome smile. Hut because his presence is engaging and always charming, we say "Larrv” is worth while and "Larry" will make the grade. In our crowning years, our friend was Class Treasurer—proof sufficient of himself and his integrity. Never a "painted doll without the stuffings," “Larrv” rated more than well in class as well as out. In the parlance of the king of sports, Fordham graduates this June one of the most colorful of all the colorful entries. 56ALFRED B. BRUNACCI. B.S. "Al" Wilkes-Barre High .School Gift Club, Choir Ltadtr, 4 Organist, 2, 3 Here we have a musician and a soldier. This does not mean that "Al'' plays in the Army Band hv any manner or means, but rather that the fields arc mutually exclusive and rhar rhe versatile "Al" is a dcvorcc of both We have often listened to the dulcet tones which floated down from the choir lolt and perhaps not attributed our mood to "Al’s" agile fingers. But when the R. O. T. C. was on parade before our admiring eyes, there could be no mistaking the trim figure in the uniform of commanding officer who rasped out terse commands and swung along with brisk step to the music of the band. Bur off the field of barrlc, "Al" is a quiet lad—the friend of many, the confidant of few. So we feel that the dignified maturity which he seemed to possess is but an expression of the well-regulated intellect that will assure him success in his chosen field of medicine. 57 Friendly, soft-spoken and easy-going by nature, "Ed Burke quickly wins the affection of Ins associates. Deeper attributes, also, of sincerity, earnestness and determination, have merited for him a high place in our esteem. To the accepted rule that no man has a liking for work, his industry makes him appear in the light of an exception. He enjoys the reputation of being forever busy about something—none of us has ever seen him idle. Through keen appreciation of the charms of music, he has formed a penchant for musical productions, and these constitute one of his chief diversions. Our years at Fordham have been enhanced by his companionship, and we hope that his future happiness will keep pace with his unquestioned deserts 58Harrv's" most notable characteristics arc his brilliancy of mind and warmness of heart. Good-natured, quiet, unassuming, alwavs eager to assist a less-gifted student, his pleasing disposition has won him hosts of friends. His success in the scholastic held has been rivaled only by his prowess on the court. As a star forward of '29's championship quintet, he displayed those same qualities which have merited him other triumphs—speed, grit, and a clean game. "Harry's" exceptional executive acumen made him our overwhelming choice to guide the financial destinies of this year's Maroon. A student, an athlete, and a leader, we arc confident that "Harry” will attain the same success in life that his energy and resourcefulness have won for him at Fordham 59Jim" is possessed of two outstanding qualities, earnestness and good-will toward all. We have always felt compelled to admire the constancy and regularity of his studious efforts, hue withal we never felt impelled to regard him as a "stude." The other qualities of his personality were too well rounded for us to feel that he was not equally proficient in the social requisites of a collegian. "Camp" would gladly stand with us for hours, drawing on his pipe and letting drop such sage remarks as arc needed that a man should he considered truly collegian. Such well balanced personality and character represents the desired result of all attempts at culture. We should he proud to have "Camp" represent Fordham at all times and at all places. 60JOHN K CARROLL, B.S. "Jack” Dc La Salle High School Council of Debate, 2, ). 4. Vitt-Presid:nt, 3.

The pages arc varied, showing now sedate colors of dignity, now powerful eloquent orations, now- soothing bars of music, now haphazard lines of wit and nonsense, now exquisite lines of poetry. The pages are diverse, indeed, but deeply written, joining leaf to leaf and omitted on no page, arc the words: Loyalty, Friendliness, Achievement. So that those observing "Jack” on the platform as actor, debater and orator, have listened in the profound quiet to his magic voice and gone away with praises on their lips; those who have read his numberless poems have divined a beauty-loving and artistic soul; and those who have casually observed the list of his conquests have spoken of surpassing talent. But those who have watched him at nil times feel that they have here found a perfect volume which grows increasingly rich in the valued fruits of true friendship— and the classic quality of growing dearer with each added perusal. 61Some twenty-odd years ago, the gods of chance plucked a branch from the tree of wisdom, nurtured it in a bright ray of kindness and set it to bloom unnoticed in its own quiet way. And now as we look at Paul, we know that the Fates must be looking too. with great pride upon their handiwork. For Paul is a brainy lad, genial, and modesr above all In keeping wirh his modcstv, he is a man of bur few words. Ir seems that sterling characters arc often born to blush unheard. Massachusetts gave Paul to Ford ham. And when she did, she parted with a son of marked sincerity, application and unyielding loyalty. For this, we thank her. And it is with the greatest reluctance that we give him back to her. Farewell and all happiness to you, Paul! JOHN JOSEPH CASLIN, A.B.

Our John is a veritable Ulvsscs, and has crossed the Atlantic as frequently and with the same nonchalance that characterized Odysseus when he crossed the Mediterranean. John was afflicted with the wanderlust, in early youth, and has spent many summers in sating it. And his numerous trips abroad have not been fruitless, for each has added to his wardrobe, his polish, his store of information and his persuasive manner. We think that John ought to enter the consular service, where his penchant for language, his diplomacy, business ability and fidelity to his task would receive full play. But whatever field he chooses, we know that his talents will spell for him success. 63FRANK JOSEPH CLARKE.

He bobs about with those knowing nods o( the head and those quick movements that give the impression that he is saying to himself: "The other generals and 1 have some work ro do." Then Frank would tackle some assignment of Greek or go into consultation over the destinies of the teams and there would be produced some masterpiece of well-ordered thought and systematic effort. These qualities won and controlled our admiration. Frank’s ready friendliness and restless desire ro mix among the crowd added the other note necessary to win the exalted office of the Vicc-Presidcncy of rhe A. A It also made him a welcome member of any party and a much-missed man, if absent. We leave Frank, after having watched him for four years "going about like a ram among his men." We count on his achieving a Ulysses-like success, by many wiles and much work. 64Am attractive smile, charming personality, ease ol manner and the ability to win . friends, these arc the qualities in Ward we like best to remember.

Unless, perhaps, he can be lured from its beauties by those intriguing, fleeting moments of a first night. It may be that some day he will record his findings of those delicious hours in the manner of a Woollcort. Clyde Fitch would have rejoiced and Percy llammond grown lyrical over "Eddie’s” piquant Mariana Vincent in “Beau Brumincll." And would that Shakespeare had seen his Dcsdciiiona! Good luck, "Ed," and may you attain the same success in professional life that you have attained in Fordham. 66John possesses such natural finesse and such spontaneous good nature, that not a few agree he is the original possessor of "personality, plus." For throughout our four pleasant years at Fordham. John has not once been anything but easy, collected,poised and happily smiling. He withheld his friendship from no one, but rather preferred to be known as everyone's pal. And those who have been among the great number who have flocked to his room in St. John's Hall know that he has indeed fulfilled this ambition, so meaningful and so universal. Worries and troubles have noplace in John's make-up and he did much to rid others of theirs, vet was earnest endeavor much admired, and no little participated in by him. He sympathized with all activities and directly advanced the causes of many organizations. We feel that he will soon be a lawyer, well-liked, well-known, and effective. 67Despite the tact that he writes the humor column in the Ram," E.A.C.'is rcaHya remarkable fellow. All of which is not said in disparagement. We have seen nothing which could disparage “Ed”—not even the Senior Profs. As a rooter for the teams, lid is without peer, and to him, Fordham athletes arc —well, not what the Bronx Howe News thinks. Any reference to the Home News in ■■Ramblings" has usually been the funniest anecdote of the lot. Ed Coan is the happy possessor of a conscientious and probative mind, a valuable asset, you will sav.

Three years' service on the Varsity baseball squad have won him the coveted "F." while on the basketball court, his close guarding has wrecked many a class's ambitions for a championship. Fordham is justly proud of this son. We feel that others also must come to esteem his keen wit and stalwart powers. 69Tiicrl were once two fellows who came to College. They were both likable chaps and immediately entered with great spirit into the University life. They attended all the dances, were conspicuous at all the Proms, and successfully enjoyed each and every social function They cheered wildly at all athletic activities on the campus or off. They helped carry the lair name of Fordhain even to the distant shores of New Rochelle. They were ubiquitous and protean. But suddenly there came a change. Only one of this indomitable pair was heard beseeching the cohorts of Fordhain to greater efforts. Only one was seen gliding gracefully over the polished floor of the dance of the moment. Only one answered to the roll call of official classwork. An inquest was held. "Bill” was found to be firm of body and sound of mind. The other fellow, poor chap, had not found time for study and the sterner work of college life and his spirit and memory alone remained. Moral: There can be only one “Bill'' Cogan. 70THOMAS W.

Vet they possess a peculiar virtue which defies a knowledge of their true depth, unless gained by careful observation. “Tom" is surely one of these. With no attempt to hide from view his innate ingenuousness by false sophistication, he has stood among us as a model of simplicity—simplicity without any suggestion of shallowness simplicity in its most praiseworthy connotation. Some people in the world, who like to read as they run, may pass “Tom" by, misinterpreting his quicr demeanor as a sign of incxprcssivcncss and preferring more assertive and declamatory traits in their associates For them we say that when “Toni" does give his opinion upon anything, he docs so free from the petty fear that he may be gainsaid, sure in his heart that what he says is true, and ready at all times with gracious deference to stand corrected. These are some of the depths which mere sophistication can never plumb. They become only a scholar and a man. 71T vou will pardon the pun. Dave" reminds us ever so much of a davenport.

Of course, you know by this time that we arc speaking of him as most everyone knew him -the all-around performer on Jack Coffey's baseball nine. This dark-thatchcd. cheery fellow could play the "hot corner." the "keystone sack." and the gardens.- with such equal grace that one would think he never played a position other than the one in which he happened to be at the moment. But if "Dave were adaptable on the diamond, then he certainly was as much so everywhere else. We never did have much sympathy for a fellow who couldn't be friends with him. for "Dave' has always been our leading candidate for the citation of "most amiable."

Brilliant of mind and warm of heart, "Joe ‘ lias held a very high place in the esteem of his classmates. Beside his continued leadership at the head of his class, he was one of the most ardent and diligent members of the Harvester Club and the Sodality. The memory of "Joe" and his zeal will be a beacon in future years. 75Congenial—the word describes Paul well. The football star, the swimmer, the runner, the earnest and effective student give place in our minds to the good fellow. He was one ever eager to exchange a merrv yarn. Yet, even as we conversed casilv with him. we continued to stand in admiration of his gamcncss and perseverance. His being disabled in football must have been a stern blow, yet did he ungri-macingly turn his efforts to other pursuits with remarkable steadiness. Nor can we pass without paying tribute to Paul's enthusiastic interest in the doings of others. The success of activities in which he took no active part seemed rhe object of his greatest concern.

Beneath this delightful good nature there lies a full man. His serious determination in matters of importance has engendered respect for his ability.

However, if we arc pinned down to pay special tribute to any one of "Bob's" attributes, we can choose none better than his unfailing modesty. Although greatly gifted and frequently occupying the foremost place in the public eye, "Bob" always retained an open friendliness and unaffected demeanor which won for him the admiration of all and the friendship of the lucky.

Four years have not changed these sterling, native qualities. This same quiet manner has won him mar.v triends, hut it has kept him from achieving that prominence in the classroom that should be his by virtue of his diligence and intelligence. He has. no doubt, often felt that the better part of wisdom is diffidence and so has remained silent while others, less able, rose to display their argumentative talent. Spccchand thought, indeed, frequently arc found in inverse ratio. We understand that August is to become a doctor To wish him success in a profession where common sense and ability arc paramount is somewhat superfluous. 81Yol- would have a song? Then strike the keynote sincerity; keep the tempo even as his disposition;have the melody speak purpose—character, the strain, quiet and subdued. Such is his nature. Let the rhythm sway in winsome fashion. Blend into harmony his simplicity and steadfastness Next, sound a note of whimsy, a counter melody of wit and pleasantry to lighten the whole. M irk ir pianissimo, for it must not be sringing. Shade it carefully with friendship. Find, too, a place for a measure of his generosity. Now end it with a warmth of feeling such as those whom he knows have for him.

Popular among Fordham students everywhere, we also noticed he is not without his popularity among the fair sex. His engaging personality seems to win him friends everywhere.

We thought perhaps his brother, Larry, was the direct cause. Bur no, we convinced ourselves that theory was wrong. And then we met him! The first time you meet him you can easily understand why he suddenly becomes popular. His winning smile, his carefree and easy-going manner, and his keen sense of humor account for everything. Yes, they even account for the many fair young ladies we have seen accompanying him to various Fordham activities. Nor did "Jack" waste a single minute of his one year at Fordham. Joining what organizations he could, he has done much for his Alma Mater. And as a rooter!— Fordham never boasted one more loyal or with stronger lungs.

Suffice it to say, however, that among his collcgcmates, "Bill has ever exerted a strong influence and he will long be remembered for Ins executive acumen and his sound philosophv of moderation.

For, if there was one thing about "Gabe ” that excited the admiration of his classmates, it was his indomitable spirit of loyalty and affection for the things of Fordham. Long hours of commuting, which would ordinarily dim the luster of a man’s enthusiasm. served merely to intensify the abounding spirit which emanated from "Gabe "and which in some measure, we are happy to say, reflected itself in the word and deed of those fortunate enough to come within the roseate circle of his friendship.

I hough handicapped by duties outside of class, he found time to be instrumental in the formation of the New Jersey Club, to participate in the activities of the Mendel Club and to attend every game and dance held at Fordham. Being a well-equipped student, "Jack" has. we think, successfully held the record for four years for his expedition in dispatching examination papers in all subjects. Rarely have we known him to be second in leaving the "docket." Next year. "Jack" will go West to St. Louis to pursue that increasingly elusive M D.

How well we remember those "concerts" in the wee sma' hours! We remember wondering, coo, how "Jack." so occupied with duties in the refectory as Brother Quinn's right-hand man, yet found time to hold down a backficld position on the Freshman football squad and keep up the marks as well. Looking back on those early days, we think we identified "Jack" with our literary idols for combining academic, social and athletic powers. Nor has our high opinion of "Jack" been at all lowered as we became more blase. For he has so widened his stride to keep up with the advance of years that we find him in Senior successfully carrying the extra burden of first-year Law studies. Ol course, John was serious enough about all these things, but we will remember him mostly for his genuine affability, ever-present wit and generous spirit. 95To state that Frank is merely a social devotee would be far from correct. It would be as distant from the truth to describe him as the studious type. Yet he is both. Frank's knowledge of the sciences is surpassed by few. Dut, as we have tried to indicate. his extra-curricula activities have suffered none bv their secondary position. It is a well-known fact that the members of the Mendel Club have often been made the wiser by Frank's observations on topics of science. This should be an indication of the success that he is destined to attain in his chosen profession. As we fclicirarc Frank on his present attainments, let us consider his future and his greater success to come. 96RICHARD JOHN DEVINE, A.B.

George's laughter was as wholesome and sound as his application. Those of us who have sat in the same pew with him in Chapel and felt it rock as the gentleman speaking told some anecdote, know how powerful his laughter is. It was really encouraging when at other times our own jests provoked this strong show of mirth.

These arc the gifts he has brought us—friendship, thought, discernment. We parr from "Joe" but leave him our gifts in return gifts of esteem and lovaltv. We bestow upon him also imitation, "the sinccrcst form of flattery," for we have come to emulate the lofty and principled friendliness which is his.

At least, it hasn't changed him materially from the pleasant chapof Freshman days, who came touswith a naivete and case of manner that immediately won our regard. "Bill s" activities cover quite a range. For four years an ardent track man, a strong supporter of the Mendel Club, a prominent member of the New Jersey Club, his record is. indicative of ’’Bill's interest in Ins Alma Mater.

Among these is Harold, and he has had his share in building up the reputation of these men. In his four years at Fordham he has revealed a very tine character. He is quiet and unassuming, vet his personality is strong enough to make itself felt and has made him popular throughout the student body. Harold is an earnest student, taking serious things seriously but with a sense of humor tine enough to appreciate real humor. Honesty and truthfulness have always been his ideals and it is certain that he will carry on and bring honor to himself and the name of Fordham. 102Throughout his college course. Bill'' has been held in high esteem and regard by his classmates, who soon come to recognize in his radiant smile and sunny disposition an indication of the genial warmth of his personality. Small in stature but mammoth in enthusiasm and energy, “Bill" is the possessor of a staunchness and worth which denote the true friend. Not content with restricting himself to one field of activity, “Bill” plunged in and proved himself a versatile son ol his Alma Mater as capable manager of the Cross Country team, talented songster in the Glee Club, able class delegate and ardent Sodalist.

His nature is open and frank, his smile is delightful, his laugh infectious. As a member of the boxing team, he has manifested his physical fitness while his mental prowess is patent to all of his classmates.

On the side, "Duke" by virtue of a Ph. G., dispenses drugs to ailing brethren and in his spare rime debates on anything with the inseparable Lou Berman.

If this wish be granted, his great success and continued happiness arc assured. iIt is difficult to pick out the characteristics that make "Andy" so well liked. We know their result, however.

If you will bear in mind that "Joe” was serious about that and would stand bv it at any time, you will have a fair idea of his intense loyalty. With this passionate devotion, there co-existed a similar fondness for the fellows. And, as we found reason to return rhis liking in fullest measure, we arc confident that "Joe” will not casilv be shaken from our intimacy. 118THOMAS I. FITZGERALD, A.B.

Then would determination and grit make him win Tom’s" favorite diversion was song and he spent many hours singing with the Glee Club. This will, no doubt, insure his popularity in later years. We expeer "Tom to make a name for himself in whatever career he chooses, and to be a son of whom Fordham will be proud. For "Tom's" big day is yet to come and then, as now, we will proudly call him friend. 119WARREN ARTHUR FITZGERALD, B S.

Back beyond even the pale of college days we sought him for his laughter-loving. carefree youth, but now that the hallowed years have lent a depth to the laughter, a breadth to the keen vision, an unaffected dignity to the bearing, and a stronger clasp to the hand—why, then, there is a lasting qualitv here that you cannot deny. Warren has, from the first, been a student of rare ability and his name was always to Ik found among the honor men of the class. There is, however, more than scholastic honor implied in the designation. For his close friends have found more than enough to justify the abiding faith which his engaging personality won from them at tirst contact. The mounting thunder of his deep sincerity is, without question, the most sterling of his qualities which drew us close to him And it has forged the link which will chain him to our intimate affections long after Fordhain is left behind. 120JOSEPH J.

Since the day of matriculation, "Joe" has given himself to Fordham. His unquenchable zeal in class and college activities has won him the admiration of his fellows. As his tireless work has commanded our respect, so his unselfish nature has gained our affection. Times without number, "Ficz" has aided his fellows and these gifts, though they passed unsung, will endear the memory of "Joe” in future years. Athlete, debater, student and good fellow, "Joe” will be a cherished link in our chain of memories and his enviable record at Fordham augurs well for success in his chosen line of endeavor. 121To paint a full-length portrait of 'Dan" on so meager a canvas demands more artistry than wc possess. But a few strokes, inadequate and superficial though wo know them ro he, may give some indication of his character. At fuse glance, then, "Dan" manifests a strong dislike of insincerity and cam and this pronounced aversion to all affectation and display has made him an ardent champion of the true evaluation of the minds and manners of men. Fundamentally, though, wc know "Dan" to be warm-hearted and generous and in his relations with his classmates, his caustic criticism is supplanted by an affability and evenness of temperament that has made his companionship a genuine contribution to our education Long after academic lectures have faded into oblivion our pleasant and profitable chats with "Dan” in the old gym will remain an cvci-recurrent source of pleasure. 122Our sincere satisfaction in having known ■ Johnnie’' through these short years has long ago turned to pride for in hint we see, literally personified, the true gentleman, with every quality and note that the term implies. His pleasant and charming smile, his chivalrous and dignified manner and his striking figure demand the esteem and respect of all his fellows. For four vears, ■Johnnie's” fine tenor voice was one of the treasures of the Glee Club and we can frankly assert that his unselfish and unceasing labors contributed in no little degree in placing Fordham among the leader in the East. Your departure saddens us, ■ Johnnie,” but we arc also made happy, for, as you go forth, we sec cvcrlasringly emblazoned upon your armor, Fordham s coat-of-arms -the scholar, the comrade, the gentleman. 123THOMAS JOSEPH FLATTERY.

The hiring of his tenor coming to us sweetly as he dreamily drifts across the quadrangle, the slow nod of recognition and the far-off gaze of his eyes as he passes us. and the unworldly nonsense that is his conversation—all leave images that we shall conjure up with great relish. When he carried this abstracted, easy manner into his various activities and preserved it while we were all inclined to seriousness and anxious effort, his presence had the effect of a tonic. When out of this assuaginglv easy-going nature there would proceed reflections of profound worrv concerning the great struggle with the world, we would just double up with laughter For such remarks arc masterpieces of incongruity m a man of Tom s customary attitude toward everything, as well as they arc unwarranted in a man of his capacities. 124 EDWARD T.

A live wire in the true sense of the word, he has disturbed the equanimity of more than a few hv his unconscious wit. Aside from his popularity in class, we have it on good authority (in fact, from one of his admirers) that, unlike the prophet, “F.d is highly honored in his own country for his social prowess. A glance at the above picture will quickly dispel any lingering doubt concerning this point. But, really, to appreciate “Ed' you must meet him. Not only that, but vou must have the boon of a prolonged acquaintance with him to realize the wealth of his accomplishments. 125Place twinkling Irish eyes above an infectious smile and arm the product with a generous heart and keen wit—then you have "Flvnnie. Irish he is, and glad of any opportunity to tell the world of it. Aside from this. “Fred’ is a scholar. Enviously, we class him among those who attain the highest awards with the least efforts. His opinions on weighty matters arc eagerly sought and always generously given. Fred has always been conspicuous as the wearer of the black derby, as the swimmer, and as the faithful supporter of all social activities. Not once has his athletic frame failed to fill a tuxedo when sweet music and soft laughter were at their height.JOSEPH M FLYNN, A.B. “Job" “Doc" Duryca High School Glee Club. I. 2,3,4 Sr Vmctni Jt Paul Stxuli, J, 2 Hu,ll Club. 1.2, 3 St John Btrcfman j Scotty, I, 2 Count,I of Dtbjtt. 2 Four years at Duryca High School in the "Hills of Pennsylvania" and a year abroad gave Joe" an unusual preparation for Fordham. His exceptional maturity of mind and broad outlook on life were immediately recognized by all who spoke with him though for but a few moments. Other things we recognized also—the sense of humor in that slow smile, the depth of soul behind that calm, serious countenance. and the spirit of a scholar in his evident knowledge and devotion to stud ies. In fact, “Joe" is a model student. From the first month of our Freshman year, we realized that here was a man who studied for rhe love of wisdom, here was one who could ignore the petty doings of the world and study deeply and earnestly, with a clear vision of the finer things in life. A glance at his activities only emphasizes the calibre of "Doe's" propensities. As were his words in rhe classroom, so will "Joe’s opinions in later life be respect cd because of the sound reasoning behind them Reaping the fruits of his attention to literature, arts and philosophy, "Joe" leaves Fordham a truly cultured gentleman, a credit to his Alma Mater and to his principles. 127Ed" is, above all, earnest, and yet one in whom no worry can grow old; for a good-willed sense of humor is fatal to anxiety. Studies and activities in which he was engaged always received the most that thorough planning and hard work could give. Every other organization was the object of "Eddie's" interest, well-wishes and encouragement. The result is that "Ed" has received the recognition of both professors and students as a man to be depended upon for thoroughness. We remember “Ed" for his quizzical smile and rolling stride as he would cross before us in the stands suggesting the easy-going and friendly character within, which closer contact brought us to know. Again we recall his joining in our sessions to talk upon any subject with readiness, taking his prime pleasure apparently from the sociability of numbers rather than from anything done or said. We feel that since "Ed" so easily makes people like him. that he will not find advancement m the held of I.aw long in coming. 128Buck" is headed for the world of business and from his Freshman days his classmates have had the conviction that he should some day guide some rising firm. His disposition and perseverance as well as his other qualifications have determined his calling to a large extent. Outside occupations had gradually taken his interest from the extra-curricula activities but he still found time for the meetings of the Quill Club, of which he is a charter member and former President. Many arc the good times had in his company for he is a hale fellow, well met. Foremost arc the trips out of town for football games, and the dances of his class and other classes, Proms being particularly attractive. It is with interest that we follow his future course and with regret that we relinquish our close companionship of the past four years. 129Ii "Jim” is representative of the inhabitants of Riverdaic, it must be a delightful place. Perhaps, as the scientists who hold briefs for the influence of environment will insist, the smooth-flowing Hudson has imbued Jim" with some of its own qualities and has helped to fashion a calm, pleasant gentleman of charm and good taste. In him, we find all the qualities that tend to increase college friendships. Never tail we recall him rutiled to the point of anger and his own good humor has served to restrain more impetuous classmen. " Jim's" pursuit seems to be teaching,or perhaps it is to be a stepping stone to Law. So assiduously has he followed Professor Winslow's lectures that examinations in Pedagogy are merely diversions for him. And speaking of diversions, we might add that "Jim" is an ardent patron of football games, dances, and Broadway theaters. Needless to say, he doesn't go stag. 130an out-thrust jaw—a steely eve—"See here now, this fellow ; "Bcrnic" aV goes into action, and only a furtive twinkle betrays the Rabelaisian depths which lurk behind that mask of seriousness. Whether he be discussing rhe modern short story, or the football team, or a certain English course, or the strange and devious ways of professors, there is always present that inimitable touch of himself which has endeared him to all who have the favor of knowing him. His talents have been exercised in the pages of the Monthly and his sonorous voice has oft raised itself in the stormy sessions of the Quill Club. He is a man standing on a mountain and surveying his dominion of friendship and love. 131Should you he scrolling on our beautiful campus and should you see a distinguished looking gentleman, whom you might think was our former President. Mr. Cool-idge, remember the judgment and not the senses arc fallible. For the party in question is really none other than our old classmate, "Bill” Gardiner, alias "Cal.” Now this pseudonym, "Cal," is derived from a speaking or rather a tacit likeness to Mr. Coolidge. While "Bill" is of a studious nature, nevertheless he harkens to the great outdoors and almost any day he may be seen indulging in the ancient Hibernian game of handball. As to "Bill's" future, though he has not disclosed his ambitions, we feel confident. For we find it impossible to doubt that success will reward his every effort. 132DAVID H.

He vviJJ play a sterling game of football, grace a Prom, enliven a banquet or make these mysterious appearances in a Tuxedo at the most unexpected times and places which only a man born to rhe purple can make—all with the same ease and aplomb. But what marks Dave,” above all, as the most thoroughly accomplished boarder we have, is his gracious and colorful manner of passing time idly. Whether reproducing vaudeville, singing songs, exchanging jokes or just listening, “Dave" can pile up the hours as no one else we know. "Dave’s” self-possession and careful wit were our refuge from worry, from embarrassment, from fatigue on many occasions. For these, we owe him a debt of gratitude. to pay which we can offer but our lasting friendship. 133JAMES F. GLASHEEN. A II. "Jim” Iona Preparatory School Dij Student" Sodality, 1, 2. J, 4 Orchestra, 2, 3, 4 There arc some people who seem to make it a point to always maintain the background, not because they arc incapable of withstanding the glare of the spotlight, but because they prefer the shade to the sun. 'Jim' is one o( this type. He is not excessively bashlul, but he has impressed us as a man of a reserved and quiet nature. We commend him particularly for his affable way and for his easy efficiency. Amid the turmoil of classroom strife, it was indeed restful to catch a glimpse of ■ Jim's" unshakably serene countenance. "Jim" has not disclosed his plans for the future. But whatever they may be, we feel confident that he will bring them to fruition, for he is a man of courage and worth and a stranger to defeat. iVALENTINE F GOF.PFERT, A R. "Val" Regis High School Day Students' Sedulity, 1,2,], 4 Ir.tertian Basketball, 3 Val" is one of those fellows who is brimful of Fordham spirit From the time of Freshman year we have been accustomed to seeing "Val" grace every occasion, whether it be social, intellectual, or athletic, and in each case to manifest the same good spirit and enthusiasm which has gamed him so many friends. Earnestness and thoroughness feature his every action. Some ol our happiest memories will be the hours we spent in gvm with Val." His athletic ability and grace are as much a part of him as his quiet, but dominating personality. As a doctor. "Val" ought to be singularly successful. He has the facility of gaining one's trust from the start and more than this, he has the fine qualities to make that trust a long and abiding one. 135I i lias often been said that a college man in his endeavors to master his courses ignores and even shuns his fellow-students. But “Harry” not only has mastered his courses with the greatest acumen, hut also, by his congenial and sympathetic outlook in his relations toothers, has won the admiration and cstccmof his colleagues. His cheery and happy disposition refreshed, strengthened and fortified his less optimistic comrades when the road became rough and thorny. His unselfish and altruistic efforts in the cause of others, not without a great sacrifice to himself, marked him as one worthy of the praise of his friends. Those who have had the rare opportunity of his friendship arc grateful and it is a sufficient tribute to him that he has the good wishes of all his classmates in his future ambitions. 136 iGERARD GORMAN, A H. 'Jerky” Xavier High School Day Students' Sodality, 1.2,}, 4 Council ef Debate, 3, 4 Glee Club, 2 Freshman Ban lull It is rather difficult to introduce "Jerry” Gorman to the general public, for here is a man who cares not for the glare of the spotlight. "Jerry"fashioned his scholarly career with a diligence that won the acclaim of both professors and fellow-classmates, and scaled the perilous heights of examination week with an unsurpassed grace. His word was the word of a man of substance, his deed was the deed of an artisan. But beyond the prosaic walls of the classroom. "Jerry's” voice was raised in song and argumentation, for he abetted the destinies of both Glee Chib and Council of Debate. His ready flow of fine English, coupled with a happy facility for logical sequence, labeled him a power among rhe ranks of the debaters and his pleasant salutation, "Gcnrlcmcn of the Council," will long be remembered by that Society's members. Here, then, we leave him with the battlement he has erected to aid him in the conquest of his chosen held. 137Gerald came to the nurturing walls of Fordham direct from Yorkvillc. He brought with him a radiant good nature which four years of companionship have only served to make more lustrous. In Junior, “Jerry" tried to emulate our dapper Mayor, not only in puns, but in punctuality. For his pains. Father Fitzpatrick branded himself and his record meritorious. Jerry's forte is mathematics, and in Senior, he was one of a very selective group of students who took a special course in methods of teaching mathematics. As a result, future generations may not call "Jerry' "blessed,” but they shall call him. Teacher. Reluctantly, we hid von adieu as we entrust you to your role of a pedagogue. A host of good wishes go with you and may you ever retain vour smiling good nature.JOHN P. GRIFFITH, A IV ■‘John” Iona Preparatory School Council of Dcbjtt, 3 John is a big chap, big in body, big in mind and big in principles. He is one whom everyone instinctively likes for his informal manner of taking everyone to his heart with a cheery smile. He seems to have wide likings and tastes, or. perhaps it is the sheer force of his school spirit which causes him to be a supporter of rhe most diversified of Fordham's activities. So much appears to the casual observer, but those blessed with John’s intimacy know and hold high his universal self-restraint, his pleasantries which persist even through hours which arc dark for himself, and so can have but one purpose—to cheer the orher fellow. Thus, the very casualness, calmness and nonchalance that characterize John all bespeak deep inward principles of strict self-training. Such a man has mastered himself and will master the world. 139I you have noticed a smiling, good-looking chap piloting a Buick coupe around Fordham’s environs you have seen “Bill.” Though he was unfortunate enough to join us only in Sophomore, he quickly overcame the handicap, and, with Arty and Lou, composed a trio known throughout for its geniality and chccr. Bill's'' most enviable asset is his sense of humor, with which he could almost raise havoc with the sriffest exams. We say “almost'' because with his good humor went a comprehensive knowledge of the subject. His wide interests made “Bill" an ardent rooter at all the games, while his charm gave him the right to introduce us to companions of “passing beauty" at the dances. "Bill’s ” future plans will lead him into a business career and now rhar you have been introduced to him you can feel no anxiety about his success. 140JOSEPH A. HARAN, A.B. “Joe” Sc.

But how is ir quite possible to speak of Joe" without the inclusion of many compliments? As long as we have known him he has been amiable, able, and gentlemanly. Our task as a modern biographer would be decidedly easier if "Joe" had been deficient in some one respect But the worst we can say of him is that he came from the wilds of Connecticut. It is admittedly silly to make predictions concerning a fellow's chances for success. Nevertheless, we arc going to hazard the guess—and couple it with a fervent hope -that "Joe" will work his way to the top, no matter what profession he may enter, because we feel that he belongs there.RAYMOND ARTHUR HARTIGAN, A.B.

His exuberant good humor is like a tonic to our worries. For Ray" worked, bur never worried, lie never "rakes anything too hard," as the fellows say. Behind his attitude is a philosophv which tells him that all things end, and so there exist no reasons to disconcert a prudent mail. The result is that he is naturally of that easy-going disposition which we all agree is proper to the collegian. His social grace and enthusiasm supply the other notes to make him known as the representative Fordham man. When "Rav" undertakes teaching, surely his disposition will spare his nerves and his able efforts will lead many to success. 142For four years, John has been with us studying at Fordham with a definite goal before him. His humor always dry has frequently furnished a good laugh for his classmates. He is the hcst-nacurcd man in the world, willing to take all the kidding with a grin Such a man is a friend worth having. And now when he is about to step out into a new field, we wish him the best of luck and know that in this departure his old classmates will not be forgotten when he makes new acquaintances. For, we can honestly say that certain memories of John in his Freshman Latin class, for instance, will always remain with us. When he is a hurried and worried medical man, he will have little time for such reminiscences, but we hope these few lines of good-by and good luck may recall bygone days and bring laughter when he most needs it. 143DOUGLAS J.

Through his four years of study, his presence graced every occasion ol note. But the flood tide of lus activity was reached when he was rewarded with the Presidencies of both the Athletic Association and the Harvester Club and elected Vice-President of the St. Vincent de Paul Society.

But very soon we were to learn that we were the ones to be congratulated for having received so fine a fellow as “Todd" in our midst. For, one of such line social polish and cheery disposition is always a welcome companion, while Ins rare business acumen was of great help to us all. Little wonder that he has been placed on most committees since entering Fordham!

We meet him at all games and dances just brimful of stories to tell about other games and other dances. For four years, he delighted us as his strong tenor rose high in Glee Club harmony. In among these diversions he found time for scholarly application and so stood high in all studies. Somewhat of the well-rounded college man — what? So he appears to all, but those who know him well perceive in his habits an ideal philosophy actualized. With him nothing is ever dull or boring—he seems constantly to pick out the sunny spot of any affair from amongst its accompanying shadows. Little wonder, then, that we should have come to seek his company as one would seek a cheering and restful spot. When Fordham sends such a man into the world she sends not merely one whose abilities assure his material success, but, above that, one whose character and personality will bless all whom he meets. 147JOSEPH GERARD HOPKINS, A.B.

Since entering Freshman, "Joe" has governed his tastes and bent his efforts along the way of literature, and his finished works have been worthy of his own satisfaction and the admiration of his friends. The hand which wrorc so many fanciful, yet realistic poems and stories for the Monthly could not but have as its guide a mind that was frank and clear, and a heart that was a sympathetic storeroom of emotions. Carry on, "Joe;” we need minds that can grasp the truth, hearts that can weigh it, and hands that can write it.WALTER J. HOPKINS.

"Wally" started off by writing one of the two prize plays for the Freshman One-Act Play Contest, as well as acting a parr in it In Sophomore, he was Chairman of the Vigilance Committee that did so much in instructing the newcomers. As a member of the Ring Committee, we owe him a vote of thanks for the excellent choice. As a member of the Glee Club, the swimming team and other organizations, he has done much to help place Fordham on top. His future profession is Law and, without doubt, we will find "Wally" up ahead with many friends beside him. 149JOHN G HLJGEL, B.S. 'Jack'' Sr James High School Wb arc indebted to Si. James, in Brooklyn, for "Jack." Originally a member of the Class of '28, he left to study surgery, but after a year's trial decided that his time could be spent more profitably by obtaining his degree at Fordham. So he entered '29 in Junior and with his sincere good-will made himself an integral part of the Class. His interest was responsible for the procuration of the publications in the science class and his evident unselfish effort won the co-operation of the men. To round out his activities, his paper on Evidences won for him first prize. In Senior, "Jack" was active m class functions but the greater part of his time was occupied with intriguing novels, "Vitalism and Scholasticism" and "The Case Against Evolution," and two or three science courses. John himself informs us that he intends being a great surgeon. Knowing his record for veracity and conservatism, we are impelled to regard this statement not as an empty boast but as a true prophecy I 150t THOMAS F. HUNT. B.S.

His academic path is strewn with the tributes of his teachers and bordered by the rails of a single purposefulness, and the goal which heartened his footsteps through tedious hours of chemical equations and physical laws has been attained in all its rightful splendor. Knowing the stern qualities that reside in "Tom,” wc feel altogether safe in predicting that with their new dignity they will prove more than adequate in helping him in the profession of his choice—Medicine. 151When “Doc” first joined the Class of '29, he brought with him the tang of the ocean and the quietness of the small town. For lie came from that paradise of Westchester, Mamaroncck, the home town by the sea. It happened that when “Doe” was still in the grades, a certain gentleman assem bled an automobile. In the course of time, “Doe” acquired that asthmatic Dodge with which he makes his daily Hegira. When summer and vacation rolled around, “Doe" would shine up his badge,and, lo and behold, there was one of the most illustrious constables who ever rrod the village square. Now, as “Doc's" days at Fordham draw to a close, we feel that success will he quick in hastening to him. Good luck, “Doe;” may success be yours! 152WILLIAM H. HYNES, Jr., A.B.

He is a philosopher. So he says and who would dare dispute this claim, knowing that Kant's "Critique of Pure Reason” was sandwiched in among his eight summer readings in torrid August?

His was the spirit of Ealstaff, larding the lean earth with his rollicking laughter and never-ending generosity. Twenty years from now the poor historian of this epic will be vindicated, for then we shall witness the philosopher leaving his well-thumbed Materia Medica to challenge the Sphinx, to turn in a good golf score, and to com pete with Pan through the sweet notes of his sax.That sincerity, which never brooks impertinence or curiosity, but which always inspires confidence and enthusiasm is one of ■Tom's" most attractive qualities. Coupled with this, he possesses a subtle and fascinating sense of humor. With those who do not know him well, he is probably quire reserved, but we, who trod the Old Rose paths with him. know only the understanding heart and its deep sympathy and consideration. Perhaps "Tom" will be a politician—this is our own idea, and, of course, we realize that Greenpoint politics are somewhat infectious—but having heard Tom wax eloquent over the rights and wrongs of the old wards, we feel we have truly beheld a man of great promise. We will not say good-by to "Tom." since no one cares to say farewell to another who is. in the truest sense, a gentleman and, in the greatest sense, a friend. 134Joe'" is one of chose persons to whom worry is a stranger and who excites our unqualified admiration by the unconcern with which he laces exams and other bugbears of college life Dark and handsome, meticulously attired, always decorous, firm in his convictions, and possessing a distinctive personality, he has adopted for his own that famous slogan. "Ik nonchalant.” We arc ignorant of "Joe's" chosen profession, but we are certain that he cannot fail. Whatever crumbs or mountains of fortune Fate might tender him. we feel that his becoming optimism will greet any destiny wirh characteristic impartiality. The talents which he possesses indeed fit him for any of the professional channels into which the college man may venture, and we have no fear in saying that "Joe” will distinguish himself wherever he may go. 155Dave'' is another of the students in the class. Coming from the precincts of Ford-ham Prep he had a decided advantage over those of us less familiar with Old Rose Hill. This may explain in some degree the giant strides with which ''Dave" outdistanced the pack in his pursuit of knowledge. One who has gained "Dave's" confidence comes to know a personality of surpassing firmness, with rhe native capacity for the profound expression of solid rock principles, and the pleasant absence of pomposity which so often mars the student's perspective We feel sure that from his intimate association with the world of science, "Dave" will garner the equipment to fit him for a career of marked distinction. 156For the certain approval of those who have not met him and for rhe continued regard of those who have, we present "Bill," defender of lost causes and enthusiast extraordinary. To know "Bill," the .casual acquaintance of a passing nod will not suffice. You must have opposed him in some cause close to his heart or received coldly the mention of one of his minor gods. Then, from his earnestness, you will come to know him, a scorner of artifice and pose, a believer in simplicity and the native dignity of the natural man. In the days that arc to come, we doubt not, if "Bill" continues to wear that little K of C. pin and act as a delegate-at-large, that time will have been unfair if we do not read of William Karl, K.S.G 157In "Russ," wc have self-containment in a degree to which less fortunate of us mighr well aspire, and in a manner admirable for its unaffccrarion. Without superiority, cynicism or contempt, he has attained an attitude of sufficiency that is seldom found in man—the social animal. This attitude is not forbidding, nor moody, nor disdainful, but rather the attitude of the cheerful, modest man who pursues his studies in a serious vein with the knowledge that work to be done must be done—without comment or procrastination. "Russ’s" maturity has given him a balanced and sane outlook which presents things as they really arc, not so highly colored, perhaps, bur in a truer perspective This asset aided by his industry and ambition will aid him greatly in his chosen field— business 158Drill mornings during rhc last year were always signalized by the appearance of a certain trim figure in the uniform of a commissioned officer. This was none other rhan "Dan" Kelley, who, by dint of remarkable mathematical skill and two years' apprenticeship as Staff Sergeant, was finally accorded the position of First Lieutenant. As far back as Freshman, we remember "Dan" as one of the thundering orators of the Forum. But the charm of forensic combat paled somewhat and "Dan" turned to the sterner pursuit of hunting for squirrels on the campus with a huge BB gun. After somewhat indifferent success at this pastime, "Dan" joined the rifle team and his future was assured, so that in the summer of 1928, he formed part of the contingent that journeyed 10 Fort Monroe, Va. Whether the squirrels of the neighborhood suffered any depletion in their ranks we cannot say; but it has been rumored that a number of Indians from a reservation nearby were found biting rhc dust near the R.O.T.C. encampment. 159Every gathering, if it is to be .1 pleasant one, muse have a smiling, laughing, jesting optimist to chase away what gloomy moments mav come its way. And now, folks, meet "Barney,” whom we have long ago designated, "the one and only happiness boy." He it is, who on more than one occasion, has broken the tedium of a quiet moment with a jolly joke and a loud laugh, as infectious as it was rollicking. And he it is, who was the peerless perpetrator of many a harmless prank that will make our college days happy recollections in the days that are to come. Bui like every jester, "Barney" has his serious moments. And to them he owes his good rating in class and his determination to pursue the study of Law. "Barney s” laugh is stilled for awhile, but we know that before long, it will add charm to the charmlessness of legal distinctions. 160EDWARD A. KELLY. A.B. "Ed" Cathedral High School SoJjfitjr, 1, 2, 4 There is one question which should have been asked "Ed" before this volume went to press, and that is, what gives him his cheerful outlook on life, love and philosophy. Certainly it was too bad that the question was never asked him, for the answer would have had its most appropriate place here, under Ed's" picture As it is, we can only continue wondering what provokes that smile which no one, except perhaps a photographer, can cause to vanish. Perhaps "Ed" is thinking of the many conditions he never has had, but more probably he is merely displaying that innate cheerfulness which has made all his friends firm ones, and all his firm friends, firmer ones. We can never pay off in kind our debt to "Ed" for his unfailing good humor and cvcr-rcady wit, vet if unending friendship can in some way repay this debt, we shall not be found worthless debtors 161JOHN JOSEPH KELLY, A B. “Jack” “John" Regis High School Gltt Chib, 1, 2. 3, InttrcolU uut Cent at, 2. 3 OnhtUra, 2 Junior Pram Commtiiee Fr'ihm'in HVti nf Jack" once lamented the lace char he was small in stature.

He has grown indeed, hut rhe same lustrous youth remains, smiling, scintillating, fresh as the day he made his first journey from Elmhurst and donned the Freshman cap and socks With a manner that is immediately engaging and pleasant, “Jack" has won for himself the comradeship of all on the campus. A tenor of tine quality and a violinist extraordinary, "Jack" can he truly said to be accomplished. From one who esteems him as a comrade, it is known rhar he possesses the driving force and determination to carry him through and hv all obstacles that beset his path.

If. then, this tribute seems to some, excessive, to others, meagre, lay the fault to circumstances. For while admiration prompts us to otherwise distasteful eulogy, friendship constrains us to actual appraisal. Now grave now volatile alternately idealist and pragmatist—Hashes of wit and humor slow, questioning turns of the head in response to innuendo—wistful reverie— determination in gritted teeth—other things in gritted teeth with mumbled words—seeking no flattery—abiding no pose—caustic, vet charitable—sometimes testy—conversant on, well, "ships and sails and sealing-wax, and cabbages and kings." Perfect, you say? We do not disclaim it, but add to all of this that he is rhe pleasantest of companions and rhe most constant of friends. 16}Johnny has a weakness for politics. He combines a great deal of common sense with much acquired knowledge, so that, together with the fact that he hails from Jersey City, a thriving Center of political life, we can well understand rhis penchant for things political. We feel that he is admirabh suited to his calling since he is blessed with a pleasant disposition and is held in great esteem by his friends—which, no doubt, went far in gaining him his first elective office as Vice-President of the Jersey Club. It is beyond question that “Johnny's” easy-going nature and his rare abilities will carry him far along the road to success. 164John, whose demeanor in class and elsewhere is of the most reticent, is. upon ap proach, found to possess the most straightforward and friendly of characters Once we came to know John, wc so admired his solidity anil constancy that we came to regard him as one of the pivots about which the Class naturally arranged itself for progress. In John, then, there is to be found much of the cold rock of sense, but to complete the picture, we must add reference to his very youthful spirit. The friendJv welcome he extends to all, the frequent blush that suggests the lad, and the simplicity of his tastes and affections—all are fundamental rather than transient and lead us to believe that John will never really grow old. He combines the practical sagacity of Solon with the eternal youth of Hermes. 165HENRY JOHN KING. A.B.

For four years the mainstay of the tennis ream, he helped gain for Ford ham the enviable position she now holds in the intercollegiate tennis world. Nor did athletics exhaust his activities. His efforts as an officer of the Sodality were tireless and as a member of the Council of Debate, he was noted for his natural powers of analysis and criticism. Loyal, sincere and strong-willed and blessed with a rare combination of brains, aggressiveness and a winning smile, "Harry" is superbly equipped for life. In the near future, we expect to hear of his successfully directing his talents towards his ultimate goal in rhis world of endeavor. Good-bv, "Harrv," and good luck. 166HOWARD F. LACHENAUER, A.B. "Howie" "Lack" Xavier High School Day Students' Sodality, 2 Junior Prom Committee Class Basketball, } Tall, fair, with a dreamy expression that approaches the wistful, this quiet, affable fellow immediately gives you a hint of the artist that is within him. And an artist he is. For four years he has entertained us with sketches, quickly and well drawn, of fellow-students, other friends, automobiles or bits of humor, and when no pencil was handy, he told us the little story vividly in softly spoken words. Finally, Ins ability at conception and execution was proved by his success as head of the art work for the Junior Prom. Serene, well-mannered, considerate, "Howie” is at the same time gifted with an imagination which not only creates fun from casual occurrences, but is also ever building up plans for a productive future. When you have an artisr anil a business man in one, you cannot have failure. When you have, in addition, a jolly good-fellow, you have a man whose future happiness in life is assured. Such a man is "Lack.” Pleasant memories have you left us, "Howie”—we shall await good news from you as the years roll bv. 167Ed” is not an easy man to write about for whatever is said of him must be in keeping with the man—unobtrusive, sensible, neatly turned. Tasteful decorations fit into the scheme of things wirhour clashing, not because they are hidden, but because they arc the 'right thing in the right place.” Mr Lahertv. as "Ed" is known in some circles, quietly observes all things. The cnrhusiasr of the theater and the reader of the latest fiction may well consult "Ed” for able criticism on these subjects, for he possesses a genuine and delicate good taste which we seek and find with great relief. A poise, that is enviable, is combined with his other qualities to make “Ed” quite the socially-accomplished young man. His pleasant manner and enlightening comments have been a source of great pleasure to us. His sincerity and faithfulness added to this have placed him among our dearest friends. Rcluctanth . therefore, do we see the right of enjoying his close comradeship pass to others. I 168JAMES FRANCIS LA LOR, A.B. Jim ' Fordham Preparatory School Secretary Freihman Ftrain Track, I, 2, 3, 4 G»!f, 3, 4 StJahty, I, 4 I Mercian Basketball, J Nobody will ever accuse ''Jim ' of being a Lilliputian. In his seventy-six inches of rugged masculinity, the topmost part of which is molded into the kind of countenance called ’'good-looking,” this modest lad is easily one of the best tvpes Fordham has produced. In addition, he is one of those who is always shaking belief in the old adage that “brain and brawn were strangers born. " Alert, intelligent to the point of excelling practicality, and resourceful, “Jim” himself speaks eloquently enough of the fact that in making his body large. Mother Nature proportionately enlarged his "gray matter." Ir is nor an easy task to cease talking of a gentleman, but we must. And we express our regret in the feeling that we arc certain we have omicicd many line things we could say about another "Gentleman Jim.” 169Francis is our idea of a reincarnated Peck's Bad Boy. He is irrepressible, funny and jovial. Ail this, in spite of the fact that he hails from that hamlet known as Yonkers. His southern (south of Albany) dialect is one of beauty and shall always be remembered with a chuckle of mirth. "Sebastian” took a marked interest in biology, spending a good deal of his time in research work. He compiled an encyclopedia of biology from which he was never known to be parted. Francis intends to buffet the waves of life on the bark of jurisprudence and we feel sure that he will prove a very successful skipper. 170NICHOLAS THOMAS LANDERS, A.B. "Nick” Ford ham Preparatory School Freshman Basketball Van sty Basketball, 2 3,4 Freshman Baseball Varsity Baseball, 2, 3,4 Nick’s” position at Fordham has been unique .For, although he never seeks public acclaim—in fact, disdains any fuss about himself he has become one of the most popular men in the college and is the most popular within his circle of associates. An over-generous heart, a sincerity and a simplicity that belie his basketball and baseball ability, plus an appreciation ol humor, be the |oke on himself or another, have led to the universal acclaim of this good sport, a man's man. Giving himself unreservedly to any task, be it to aid his school, his team or his fellowmen, ”Nick” usually leaves but little for himself. During four years as pivot man of that famous basketball attack, he passed the ball to Doc, Bo or Pop, only raking the shot when the play demanded. But when "Nick" shot, he shot as he passed, fast and true, as the Colgate team or his scoring record will quickly attest. No small wonder that when he was hurt, the student body almost went into mourning and that when he returned to the line-up, we swamped Yale with 46 points. "Nick” leaves a big gap in Fordham, in basketball, and especially in the lives of those who know' him for what he is- a friend if ever there w-as one. 171JOSEPH V.

No event, athletic or social, would be complete without his cheery presence. His keen wit was ever a source of jov to his host of friends. His vivacious spirit and bubbling laughter time and again have raised us from the depths of the "blues" after a tough exam or lecture. However, "Joe" has blended the serious with the |ovous. In addition to his dramatic activities, he worked three years caring for the track team and in his Senior year his efforts were fittingly rewarded with the position of Manager. In the classroom, his work has always been above the average. It is said that every lane has a turning. But knowing "Joe" as we do, we feel sure that this Lane will never turn from the path of success and glorv. 172THOMAS F. V. La PORTE, B S. "Rf.d” "Tom" De Witt Clinton High School Muultl Club, 2, I Chairman B.nijttft Ccmmitttt, 2, ) Varsity Football, I, This fiery, flaming youth who claimed he was "God's gifr to the University"seems to have deserved that name. His skill in rhe art of diplomacy and politics was clearly demonstrated by the weekly appearance of several hundred ducats for C. C. Pyle's football games. The Mendel Club was quick to recognize the value of his glib tongue and appointed him Chairman of its annual banquet for two successive years. "Tom” is quite a Beau Brummell. If we were to recall his affaires d' amour y they would rival the league of nations for their surprising variety. Seriously, we found him a true friend and an honest ro goodness real fellow, with a fiery, indomitable spirit. Surgery is "Tom's" chosen profession and his success throughout his college years is to us a sure indication that he will accomplish great things for his fcllowmen in the future. 173PHILIP HARRY LASKOWITZ, B.S.

Incidentally, everyone around Ford ha in knows his amiable smile and one cant help noticing that he views the world from an unusual attitude. Phil" is a true example of sportsmanship and whether in a classroom, where he was a renowned philosopher, or on a gridiron, where he was known as "Planskv," he always had a most jovial disposition. It has been said that, as a member of Fordham’s famous philosophical trio, lie wrote a revised edition of Epistemology. It has also been rumored that his judgment of feminine beauty is almost infallible. In predicting a great future for him in medical school, wc arc of the opinion that Ins perseverance and amicability will bring him to the front ranks in due time. i i iIt is only when rhe rime comes for parting that we begin to realize those happy hours we spent with a comrade of college days. George is amongst those we shall miss. There was a geniality and affability of manner about George, mingled with a frankness and sincerity of rare degree. No friend ever found George loarh ro help in any manner possible. His sportsmanship and sense of fair play marked him as a Fordham gentleman and earned for him the respeer of all who came to know him. In parting, we express rhe wish that Dame Fortune may smile on all George s efforts to win her. 175JOHN B.

For it reveals his extensive background, built up by much travel. His brotherly generosity springs from never-failing gentlemanliness and interesting moods. John is just what poets claim for young men—glad in spring, in the depths at exam rime, happy at holiday season, and slightly worried by some affair of the heart at all times These qualities in John made us glad to have him about. Ir was fortunate, therefore, that he combined with them a veritable passion lot attending Fordham functions. Our teams invading foreign colleges would feel strange if John were not faithfully burning up the road in their wake. I: GREGORY A. LEE, A B.

He always seemed refreshingly oblivious of such competitions, incapable of envy. Work, with "Greg. ' is a necessary evil to be dispensed with as quickly as possible. Logically, therefore, he sought some form of play during whatever time was not absolutely demanded for his studies. He carries this spirit of play with him always, regarding life as a great game, and all of us as his playmates. Yet did this spirit of levity never carry "Greg to such extremes that he came to regard the endeavors of others flippantly. No, lie sympathized with every effort made on Fordham's behalf, and helped generously whenever his ownenergies were requested. His ever-present merriness and wholehearted co-operation leave us many times his debtor, with a debt we can never pay back in kind. Yet arc we enough without scruple to express the hope that we may continue for many years to run up this debr by continuing in his intimate friendship. 1771 I JOHN JOSEPH LENNON, A.13.

Or. if by chance you should catch Laverv in the act of argument, just look around and you'll find John as graceful a nonplussed opponent as there ever was. In Freshman. John showed his histrionic abilities in one afternoon as the femt ie of which they sav durchtx. ! i fonnu After that, whatever acting he did, was done off stage, or. perhaps, when he joined the Glee Club. But, all in all. we learned to know John for the eager, keen-spirited chap that he is. He lives to accommodate—he is the companion, the comforter, the student of the light and dark sides of life. We sought him for the joy he emanates, the feeling he reveals, the friendship he holds. 178HERBERT J LENZ, Jr., B S. Herb” St. Ann s Preparatory School Mrndtl Club, 2 To “Herb'' belongs the distinction of being one of the few men who daily brave the fog and storms of New York Bay encountered in the journey from the wilds of Staten Island. One would suppose that residence in such a remote spot would be conducive to a rather lax interest in things on Rose Hill, but those of us acquainted with ' Herb' arc well aware that little of moment occurs in Fordham which lacks his participation. With his inseparable companion, Jim O'Reilly. ' Herb” has been an avid pursuer of scientific knowledge and if the library seems to hold charms for him, it is only because he has no intention of incurring the risk of those pleasure-marring vexations called conditions. "Herb" has prepared himself for medicine and since, from experience, we know he can apply himself to society and study with equal facility, we have no fears for his success. 1791" arry" is a person we envy. Either humming the latest popular hit or bursting forth into melodious strains of II Trovatore," he passed his four years, diligently shunning all worries and relegating Old Man Trouble-' far to the background. He excited our deep admiration by the unconcern with which he faced exams and the other nemeses of college life. Nothing seemed to bother him and he took things philosophically, needing no one's favors. "Larry " asked no greater pleasure than to be left unmolested in some bright corner of the library and to sink into the depths of vitalism or evolution. Often we have watched him there, with none being so soulless as to disturb that colorful picture of peace ami contentment. Larry’s" other failing is his car. II at anv time you find yourself around Flushing, stop in at his garage. Most of his spare time is spent altruistically in repairing spares for unfortunate tourists. If cheerfulness and a good sense of humor will obtain fame and fortune for anyone in this world, there can be no doubt about "Larry's” success. 180They sav ‘‘Bert’' came to us from Georgetown. Yet, we have always found that hard to believe. For we have preferred to regard him as some character who had strayed from the realms of a Saturday livening Post srorv, rhe hero type we all admire. '‘Bert” is indeed a fitting obicet for our admiration. Distinctive, clever, always the gentleman, he has the verve and dashing manners that capture the young and imaginative. But that isn’t all there is to "Bert.” Loyal and generous, no friend has ever called upon him in vain for aid. In "Bert," our ideals are realized. We are confident that he will ever be a constant source of pride to Fordham. IH1J" ake " is a man who can he silent in several languages, who is quite a linguist, yet as parsimonious with words as a Caledonian is with guineas. But do not discount 'Jake's' knowledge. For vour attacks on a proposition arc futile if he defend it, since he will summon to the fore what he has gained from listening while others talk, and your cause will be vanquished by a few well-chosen phrases. "Jake's” friendship has not been confined to a few boon companions. He has won his wav into all our hearts, and every Fordham man wishes for him the success which he has earned so well. ! 182LEONARD J. LUC1ER, B.S. "Lou” McBirney Preparatory School Men Jr 1 Club. 2 A gentleman known as Lou." A slight transgression upon the famous lines of Robert W. Service we feel sure will be forgiven. "Lou" in his soiourn at Ford-ham won much popularity for himself by his eulogistic vocabulary toward fellow-students and his willingness to be an auxiliary partner in any of rheir difficulties. He was a very prominent member of the Mendel Club, where he won much applause for his treatise on "Industrial Baking and Its Importance," a pursuit by the way that he expects to follow when he Ica cs college It is clearly evident, from personal contact, that when "Lou" starts out on his dough-dispensing career. New York shall taste a better loaf of bread, wrapped in Fordham spirit that has never been known to grow stale. 183RICHARD A.

In Freshman, he was suitably bashful, and shook off this dcmurencss only little bv little, as he became acquainted with Fordham and her ways. No more truculent Sophomore was there than "Dick." As to his Junior and Senior years we cannot assert, but only trust that there also he pursued his habits of correctness. For in these years, he had won a place far too close to our hearts to remain subject to the cold critical eye. Friendships seemed to sprout freely under the sunm influences of "Dick’s" fine features, his delieaev and hearty manner. This enthusiasm was never lost, even amid the grim determination and thorough application with which he undertook and effected many achievements. He seemed to say, "I’ll do the work, but let the Devil care.” So has our total confidence been evoked by his steadiness, and our wondering admiration by his prevailing good humor. It strikes us that such a chap is admirably fitted for the dental profession. We expect that he will make his patients smile even while applying the drill. 184Brooklyn Prep has sent many line men to Fordham’s Halls but the very best is "Artie.” With a manner that is trank and a personality that is charming, Artie ’ won his way into our hearts from the first day we met him. A man of firm convictions and principles, of unwavering faith and loyalty unmatched, is "Artie. " Moreover, he lias a sense of humor unrivaled and contagious, wit that is keen and a smile that is invaluable. “Artie" aspires to prominence in the medical world and who can say that he won't attain it, for when his prescriptions fail, his cheerfulness will produce the desired effect. It is rather difficult to say Good-by" but although we never see you again, "Artie," never will we forger you. mJAMES P. LYNCH, A.B. "Jimmie” Xavier High School Day Studtnts' Sodality, !, 2. 4 " timmie” is a very quiet fellow. This fact, however, docs not prevent him from J being affable. “Jimmie ' is not bashful. He is a deep thinker, and concentration gives him that reserved and indifferent air. He has a serious, business-like appearance and in his ease, appearances arc not deceiving. Everything he does with earnestness and thoroughness—lie has been known ro become oblivious of everything while fixing his hair or tie. This was not due to vanity bur ro habitual concentration. He carried his earnestness and his power of concentration even ro the gym and as a result he was an adept basket-shooter. These qualities, coupled with personality, are sure to bring success in the noi-far-disrant future. 1S6WILLIAM FRANCIS McALOON, A.B.

Whether his presence demanded a dinner jacket, or whether he was out on the diamond giving Jack Coffey a hand, he was ever the same, smiling person.

Aside from this, we have come to know "Bob” as a man of sterling qualities, both as classmate and friend. A philosopher of rare merit, he has often beguiled us with his abstruse objections, couched in the profound language of the masters, and delivered with the soft voice of the gentleman. And again as the friend, we have found a wealth of sagacity in his intimate confidences which we hope tocultivatc and cherish for many years to come. 189james Joseph McCarthy, jk., A.B.

It is in this latter class that we find "Jim. " And we find him a true Fordham man - loyal, sincere and ever willing to devote his best efforts towards Fordham’s interests. Since his admirable modesty restrains him from any mention of his own varied accomplishments, wc take the liberty of enumerating a few of them here. As Manager of basketball, as an officer of the Council of Debate and time and again as an individual orator of excelling ability, he has proven himself a man to whom difficulties present an incentive rather than a discouragement. We feel sure that he abandons his very enviable position here only to fill a greater place in the world and to continue to reflect glory on himself, his college, and his friends. 190Bill” has been a devotee of athletics for so long a time that he has begun an active campaign to have the sports section start on page one of the daily paper. Perhaps this can be explained by the fact that 'Bill" is a proficient exponent of the national pastime, and when March rolls around, there is no approaching our genial classmate save through the door of Big League gossip. But contrary to what you might at lirst suppose, the profundity of "Bill’s” thought is not exclusively confined to the realm of his heart's desire, for any afternoon toward the semester's close, you may find him in close communion with certain members of the basketball team indulging in a heated, round-table discussion in the library. Someone has naively suggested to us that the conversation might touch things other than rational psychology, bur we have spurned the insinuation on the basis of the exhausribiliry of any subject. And sports, like anything else (barring ethics), have their limitations. So we leave "Bill" to his own devices and can think of no better valedictory than: "You're Out!" 191Somf people talk a great deal but sav very little. Others speak seldom but when they do they immediately gain the attention of their hearers. Such a chap is “Mac.' Quiet and unassuming during his four years at Fordham, he has made countless friends without being a "popular man " in the accepted sense of the word. “Jim's" particular weakness, contracted in Junior, is philosophy and so many arc the difi'.culties with which he has confronted the "profs" that his scholastic standing is well above the average. And despite his knowledge of the "ultimate causes," he has never been too absorbed to help his classmates. No obstacle has been too great to surmount in his willingness and promptness in extending his aid to others. 192“Aw sill! they framed and still the wonder grew.

Mac has struck a tine proportion Between the duties of class and the pleasant time-wasting occupations that crop up about campus. We know he will successfully maintain this proportion at medical school, at once preserving his popularity and high scholastic standing. 194FRANCIS S.

At Xavier, the scene of his "Prep" activities, "Mac" was a Major ol a battalion and thus is well versed in military science. Besides this, he maintained a high scholastic average and was prominent in all school affairs. A review of his years here at Fordham indicates that he has enlarged on these accomplishments. Especially is this true in the line of 'Dramatics." In Freshman, his superb acting in the One-Act Play Contest won for him first prize Since then he has been consistent identified with dramatics —coaching as well as acting.

To see Kip" smiling when scholastic skies were grey and scholarly minds were blue, has always been a delight to us during his years with us. What leaven is to bread and aging is to rare vintages that is what “Kip" has been to our student society. He has been the spark plug of our social machine, his ever-present smile serving as an immediate stimulant. When the life of the world has engulfed 11s all. scattering our ranks and diverting our steps into different paths, we shall surely rally once more in the presence of KipY’smile.

Space scarcely permits recalling all the activities in which "Tom” has participated but fresh in our minds is the Connecticut Club Dance at Christmas. No more evidence than that brilliant affair need he adduced to demonstrate "Tom's” executive ability and managerial skill. If fortune smiles on those who are cheerful, "Tom' is destined to attain the pinnacle of success. It would be, therefore, simple to philosophize on the bright future awaiting him—let us rather part with thanks for the companionship and good fortune that have been ours in knowing "Tom.” 193EDWA RD JOSEPII lcN ALLV, A.B. ‘Ed’’ Xavier High School Maroon EJitor-in-Chief, 4 Council oj Delate, 2, 3, 4 Vanity Delate, 3. 4 Immaculate Cone prion Soelality, 1, 2, 3, 4, Prefect, 4, At infant, 3 Ring, Commit ret, 3 Oratorical Contejr, ), 4 Mima and Mummen, 2, 3. 4 One Act Plays, 1, 2 Vanity Slow, 4 Freshman Forum, Vice President Intercollegiate Delatei Class Secretary.

Perhaps it was in the guise of philosopher, when the sharp thrusts of his brilliant intellect silenced the tongues of petty objectors, or, again the mantle may have touched you when rhe torrent of his flawless logic brought you with him through the devious channels of debate. But more than likely, as the eyes of classmate and friend peruse this page, when time has mellowed recollection, the portraiture will be done in softer tints -a canvas of the inner man whose cherished ideals countenanced no compromise, whose poetic fancy climbed among the spheres in search of the music for which he lived and whose unswerving purposes found shape under the strong hand that was yet so gcnrlc.

He stopped for a time at Steven's Prep to have the rough edges polished oir. and then breezed into Fordham. Like all men from the great West, “Joe’" was adept at making friends and many an observer would fed surprised to learn that he has known most of his chums only since coming to Fordham. "Joe’s" activities here have been many and varied. While the New Jersey and Mendel Clubs have profited most from his interest and ability, all of his many interests have received his valuable attention. From what wc have heard of "Joe’s" activities out of school it seems that here a trip from Hoboken to Brooklyn is not too arduous for a man interested in the cultivation of the social graces. Whether reaching, medicine or the machine of business will claim "Joe" seems vet an open question. Whichever one does, wc wish him all success. 203BRUNO A. MARANGONI, BS.

He is quiet and unassuming. a student of rare scholastic ability and keen sense of perception. Many times, when an interrogating professor looked about for his prey.

And as Irving gave fame to his home, Irvington-on-Hudson. so does "Yinnie” promise to give a hit of immortality to some spot in Croton. Years of intimacy with the works of that famous historian and humorist have enabled "Yin” to catch his spirit and this, aided by his own powers of analysis, wir and expression, bids fair to give Ford-ham a distinguished author-son For four years, his propensitv for irony and jest, delivered in an almost dry, matter-of-fact, characteristic manner has given us genuine entertainment and yet has always exemplified the words of Charles II: "Good |ests ought to bite like lambs, not like dogs; they should cut. not wound " Like Irving, "Vinnic" is more than a litterateur—a man of affairs; a basketball player more than passing fair, and possessor of an amiable disposition and a depth of soul that has made conversation with him something to be treasured. !WILLIAM JOHN MARTIN.

Work with him was a thing sought after, and studies fell easily before his keen mind.

"Jack” "Smikko" Brooklyn Preparatory School Gift Club, 2 SoAahty, ], 2 M otooN Staff Swimming, 2 The sobriquet "Smikro" may be a mysterious Greek word but the secret of "Jack's" popularity docs not require searching scrutiny. We need no Dr. Watson to tell us that a man affable by nature and genial and witty in his manner would have a host of friends. Profound psychological and ethical study made "Jack" adept in that rather disconcerting art of "springing" pointed questions at his professors. With that malicious relish he would sit back and watch the poor professor inadequately reply for "Jack" was always right—to his incontrovertible arguments. That "Jack," then, should have chosen Law as his life's work is not surprising. A man so well equipped with brains and winning personality cannot help being a success. ?08AUGUSTINE MEIGHAN. A.B. "Gus" Xavier High School Gus" is a fellow who is made to be sociable by a twofold necessity: first, his own insatiable desire for companionship draws him to others; secondly, when these others know him, they will never permit him to deny them his proximate friendship The result is rhar we, who have observed "Gus" at all social events from the bouts of our Freshman year to our own Senior dance, have always seen him smiling and amid friends with a quiet joke upon his lips If we were asked what it is that makes "Gus" so highly valued as a companion, we would but remind you that the best manner of telling the truth is in jest, and add that "Gus" has a penetrating, though polite, way of seeing the truth about persons and things. We next refer you to the light in his eves, if you doubt that he can express this truth in |cst. "Gus" departs from Fordham but leaves still echoing here the jolly laughs of a happy spirit, the happy nonsense with which he cheered us all, and here and there, where the secret was told, the deep tones of a noble character voicing lofty ideals. it 209GAETANO MONTILLI.

In Junior, the sobriquet of "St.Thomas Aquinas" was almost conferred on him by his classmates in view of the high mark he attained in philosophy.

"Dick is one ol the most unassuming, soft-spoken and few-worded fellows in the class and at the same time one of the most congenial and likable. "Dick' has always had an active interest in debating and indeed in all Fordham activities. He has been busy in the sodality work of group visits to the sick in the city hospitals. In the Council of Debate, he has established himself as a skilled debater. Nor did "Dick" forget his studies, as his splendid marks may testify. But whether it be a debate, or a game, or the College degree, the loyalty and willingness that have always been "Dick's" will carry him far along the path of his choosing to the success that he will meric. 211To say that John is a man of words is surely wrong tor he is the veritable still and deep water. Vet can we style him a master of the written word. Not that his abilities arc confined thuslv. John is a basketball star of splcndidcaliberand contributed much toward our successive triumphs in interclass tournament. Here, he dis-plaved his prowess both as the brilliant guard and the scintillating shot, as the sports scribes sav. But why should we specify just one phase of his work when we can in one shut-eyed imagining, picture in fantastic fashion, his nearness and his companionship throughout these years at college? His hair is curly, his eyes are blue and he has a smile which would radiate through the densest of beards. As these are but a few of his long list of assets, we arc sure his undertakings will be made his accomplishments. 212To try to picrurc John in words unnatural and large would be to work an injustice on him. John is a good-natured, humorous student. In class, he usually chooses a scat toward the front of the room. With his head cocked to one side, intently and quietly he passes the period. Almost the only sound from him is an occasional scratching of a pen—his notes to study at home. But once outside the classroom, "Mori" casts off his solemn mask. Then, to find John, one has hut to seek the center of that group whose laughter rises loudest and merriest. It is said he could give the inimitable Mr. Will Rogers a lesson or two. Best of all he can enjoy a little joke at the expense of himself. We owe to John's commingling of the earnest scholar and happy-go-lucky playboy much of the inspiration and amusement which light our college course. 213WILLIAM B. MOR LEY, B.S.

"Bill hails from New Jersey, with many of his classmates, and his participation in the New Jersey Club has indicated his fitness for his chosen field—politics. "Bill" ambitions a seat in Congress and, if geniality with truthful sincerity will speed his journey, we will early see his hat in the ring. Bill s residence in Fordham has enabled him to become intimately acquainted with many of her sons in all classes and c know many ol us will regret to lose the daily contact of so pleasant a man. 2HHenry came from Xavier ro find Fordham ideally suited to his fancies and needs. He found here many things ro test and develop his patience and his good-will, so that these arc now foremost in his makeup, the fore-runners of a host of ideal qualities He obtained patience in his constant striving after the mysteries of philosophy and the homelike intimacy of the molecular atom, the good-will coward his fellow-man came upon passing the exam.

Many a Fordham youth has envied the ease and graciousness of manner with which "Jack" conducts himself on these occasions and certainly, if dancing were one of the bachelor’s arts. "Jack" would graduate summa cum laudt. "Jack's" hobbies center around a banjo and the composition of poetry. In each, he has acquired remarkable skill, rising far above the mediocre. Perhaps you have already heard him over one of our large local radio stations? "Jack," famous also for his detailed knowledge of widely different subjects, has left us in wonder and admiration of his capabilities. In philosophy, he found his haven of contentment. Many a difficult problem was solved when "Jack" came to the rescue. We wish you the best of luck. "Jack," and we may say that with your natural ability and present popularity you are well on the road to future success. 224If a keen intellect, a close application to duty, and a genial disposition mean anything on rhe road to success, then Mario's friends subscribe to the unassailable premise that here is one whose future is assured. From the first he has been a diligent student, aiming for the ideal of scholastic endeavor. Yet never once did Mario allow himself to be steeped in the lore of books. For we have ever found Mario to hold to a golden mean of scholarship which admitted of converse with his fellows- a converse through which we have come to know him as a man of strong convictions, of sterling characteristics, of abounding good fellowship. And above all this, we shall remember Mario as holding to the contention that all things Fordhain are to be revered and cherished and for this, if nothing else, his Alma Mater and his classmates will hold him in fond memory. 225 15RICHARD IGNATIUS KEVIN.A.B.

For this last we will forgive you. In the long chain of "Dick's" accomplishments, it were no crime to forget a single link.

Mis guiding principle of inactivity is: "Mucho rrabajo—manana ." It's all a poorly camouflaged pose, for "Andy” managed to mix his studies with outside activity and to excel in both. Moreover, there were very few men who failed to know "Andy”—and what's more, like him. His sober, quiet manner might have deceived many at first. But it was not long after thar, one learned lie possessed an optimism of a most contagious kind. No one was immune to it. "Andy's” undoubted ability cannot but bring him success and his personality will surely win him more friends.

For months he labored unnoticed, but the time came when high scholastic rank among his classmates could not be denied him. A quiet, unassuming lad, lie has a make-up of exceptional studiousness. The friends whom he has made among the student body have steadfastly remained friends by the attracting force of his character. Outstanding gentleinanlincss distinguishes him upon every occasion. No matter how strongly he may feel, his language and actions are ever gentle. His voice, howsoever mild it be, is vet capable of the expression of arguments that baffle and convince. He will leave college as quietly as he came, and leave in the hearts of Ins schoolmates, only good-will towards him. 228FRANCIS GILROY NOLAN.

He musr he intelligent, good-looking, modest, affable and, of course, a perfect gentleman." We do not remember the name of the person who made this very uncompromising demand for these rare and valuable qualities in one man. But whether the requisition was that of an idealistic young maiden, or of an exacting executive, we feel sure that “Frank” would be able to satisfy either. Far too reticent to demand it, “Frank,” we believe, reaped much more admiration than those who boldly sought it. We do not fear the future as far as “Frank” is concerned, for when one's armor is plated with Fortune's choicest gifts, and friends are many and true, surely no ill can befall him. 229Jack" was one who gained universal admiration for a keen mind. He pursued the ultimate causes and the elusive atom with equal facility and success. In the lust, lie distinguished himself for unearthing only those objections which were real difficulties; in the second, for mastering a maximum number of formulae. When "Jack" desisted from scholark endeavor, he went about among his friends achieving also a special distinction, but now for geniality and good-fellowship, k seems to be Jack's" gift to be able to shake off the shackles of studious appearance and don the garb of gayctv, the moment he quits actual studying. W'c, who have watched "Jack" for four years, unhesitatingly proclaim that his cHorts must always be crowned with success, his friendliness with popularity. 230Four years ago. "Tom” entered Fordham, determined to reap the benefits of a college education, and now. The Doc is among the elite. Seeing him at the various Proms, dances, and teas, one would wonder whv he was not christened Admiral—not for anv nautical experience, of course, but for his ability in piloting the fair sex around a dance floor. In our group of intellectual aristocrats, "Tom" has ever been among those of the front rank Fordham will lose a loyal and devoted son when Tom" departs for newer fields, but the outer world will be the gainer. In some future day. when "Tom" has made his mark, all of us will be even more proud to say, I knew him at Fordham." 231GEORGE LOSEREO'GRADY. A.B.

Indeed, his enviable record of accomplishments, social and scholastic, will ever be pleasant matter for our future musings. But it is safe to sav that the fondest recollection which most of us will cherish, will not be of his deeds, but of his delightfully charming self. George leaves us well adapted and prepared for the physician's work that he hopes to perform. May the smiling kindliness that he has ever so liberally dispensed, be as refreshing to Ins patients as it has been, at all times, to us. 23dJohn is indeed a good fellow of great abilities, and much suited to his chosen profession of medicine. For sciences have been a kind of weakness of his. Upon these subjects, it gave him such great pleasure to expound that he has won the appellation of learned doctor. Many's the time as we were forced after lunch to be taken by our unwilling feet toward the biology laboratory, we would watch with great mystification the eager and intent look which gleamed in “Johnny's" eyes as he seemed to conjure up before his imagination the picture of a prostrate cat the incricacies of whose "innards" he was to be privileged to explore. We all proudly call John, friend, but the name of special pal must be reserved to be pronounced by Joe Comyns. The two formed a combination which could not be severed save for a few hours each day, when John’s passion for science led him to the laboratory, while Joe, an arts’ man to the core, hung back. A friendship between such fine fellows Fordham can well be proud to have nurtured. 233Frank carried ro Ford ham an erect hearing which became his natural dignity. At all times, he has preserved a demeanor becoming a gentleman and an aloofness from all that even suggested vulgarity which commanded both our respect and our admiration. At Fordham functions, his matured conduct and striking appearance made us proud of him as a representative Fordham man. The success, which was his in the social world and in winning our esteem, was equaled by his endeavors in the scholastic held. His attitude toward studies was always wholesome and serious and his efforts were always crowned with enviable marks. We regret to feel that the time approaches when Frank' must leave Fordham but console ourselves with the knowledge that his actions will surely instil in everyone whom he meets a further respect for Alma Mater. 254JAMES JOSEPH O’REILLY, B.S.

If ever the terms irrepressible and irresistible" good-humor were well employed, here indeed they typify the man. Never has ‘ Jim been caught in any but a sunny mood. To him, pessimism is a mere word and melancholy, pure, poetic fancy. Even psychology, ethics and the sciences were regarded by “Jim” as susceptible to good humor and, indeed, we believe they were. Certainly our professors were incapable of resisting an ingenious smile and their professional dignity was often completely shattered by an explanation rendered in the inimitable O'Reillvesque fashion. “Jim" has chosen medicine for his profession and we have a strong suspicion that not least among his health-giving nostrums will be one nor acquired in medical school nor carried in a black bag—his boundless good-humor 235THOMAS W.

As a complement to his quietude of manner, "Tom" possesses the enviable characteristic of cheerfulness and a good share of that. With these two invaluable assets, it is safe to say that "Tom’ will soon reach the heights of success which arc ever the goal of such as he. 236Fordham is indebted to Jersey for one ol its most popular students. “Joe' has one of those compelling, good-natured personalities that give us a glimpse of true greatness. 'Joe's " future, he himself maintains, lies in Medicine, and our good wishes can be stated no more substantially than bv the hope that he may be successful in that vocation as he has been here in Fordham. In fact, knowing "Joe” as we do, we can predict, not merely that he will he successful in his chosen field, but that some day, when he is numbered among the leaders of that noble profession, there will be a place for him in the heights. So keep up the good work, "Joe.” You have the ability and behind it the sinccrcst wishes of your fellows. And why not? For "Joe” is indeed a prince of a fellow and a worthy son of Fordham. 237FINTON J. PHELAN, Jr., A.B.

His four vears at Fordham have not been unruffled but he has come through. His extra-curricular interest has been engrossed in the newly-formed nnlit.cn unit. His rise in this branch has been steady and promising With endless hobbies to attract his attention, his time has been well taken up. Nor has he neglected his social affairs, for every dance and function has been made pleasanter by his presence A loyal supporter of Fordham and of everything that is of Fordham, Finton should easily follow the footsteps before him and make of himself one of the foremost of the legal profession It is our wish and hope that he will do what it is our faith thar he can. 238Though wc ha c known “Jim" for years, yet we arc baffled in attempting an adequate exposition of his attributes, and must refer to extraneous sources. Wc can think of nothing that more closely delineates Jim’s” character than Newman s definition of a gentleman, one “who never knowingly gives offense." He ever exerts extreme solicitude for the feelings of others, and his outstanding scholarship combined with his good-will has aided many a less fortunate classmate to emerge successfully from rhe maze of some baffling scholastic problem. But practical application of principles awair “Jim" as he leaves Fordham to take his place in the world. And it is with pride that wc say that the “Idea of a University” has been fully realized in producing such men as our “Jim." 239BERNARD JOSEPH PISANI, A.B.

At all times, "Barney" has given his time and energy to Fordham. In the fall of Freshman, he joined the ranks of the assistant managers. His cheerful spirit and readiness to aid his charges, in addition to his business ability, won for him the important post of Varsity Football Manager. His zeal and labor in the social activities of the Class and College materially aided in their success. Despite the fact that "Barney” elected the hardest course in Junior and Senior, he acquitted himself noblv in the classroom and it is our well founded belief that in the years to come he will gain the laurels of success. 240PoGit" is the type of person with whom acquaintance will not be readily made. He is quiet, reserved and even reticent. But as soon as one is fortunate enough to have that privilege, he recognizes a personality most attractive and congenial. In the classroom, on the basketball court, wherever his varied pursuits lead him, “Pogie” is satisfied to let his sterling traits reveal themselves. An unassuming member of the class, "Rennie" is always one of the most agreeable and likable of fellows. Therefore, let us hope that his future success will stand on a par with the quality of his friendship, for we can be sure, then, that he will never be far from the top. o 241Although coming from a school so remote from Fordham, we find in Mario a . young man with all the instincts of a Fordhamitc. During his first year, he took high honors in mathematics, and has since continued to stand well above the average in all his classes. In "Polzy," we find a student who has a tendency for jollity at school, combined with serious intent for the work at hand. Perhaps a bit too candid in his thoughts, Mario is. nevertheless, held in esreem by those of us who know him. At no time has he refused to help a classmate, on the contrary, instantlv gave all aid possible to a less gifted student. '‘PolzyY' ambition is to become a physician and we who arc his classmates sincerely wish him success. 242Of all rhc men who first signified their intention of entering the field of medicine, we can think of none who has evinced more singleness of purpose than "Tom. ' From the first hour of class 'Torn” has shown an amazing aptitude in the field of science and his endeavors in the experimental field will long he remembered bv the professors who so earnestly commended his work to students and faculty members alike. Tom'' boasts a great roster of staunch friends. And anv afternoon you may find him coasting lazily down rhc back road in his "bus’’ with a half-dozen or more of the Senior Class holding on to each available stanchion. After the rough passage that “Tom's'' "bus" has weathered, we are inclined to the belief that it may rind a happy hunting ground in the near future. Re that as it may, there are many of us who will remember the wild rides we had and the stcadv hand of "Tom" guiding it down the parh and out into the road. 24 HF.NRV POSTF.R, B.S.

There, even as with the violin and his studies, he has covered himself with distinction for thoroughness. Friends not only admire"Poc” for his earnestness,his sincerity,and the pleasantries which he utters, but hold that these qualities must bring about his success. It is certain that, whatever other claims to the limelight "Henny" may hereafter make, the personality which won him a hosr of loyal friends at Fordham will render him well-liked and well-known everywhere. If his physician's kit fails to restore a patient to health, we feel sure that his amiable disposition will elfcct a cure. 244 GEORGE JOSEPH POYNTON.A.H.

George owes this widespread popularity to his obliging and genial disposition. Recently, he caused a furore in the gym while purchasing some forty tickets for various friends and acquaintances. This is but an example of the many favors he would undertake to perforin for us. In all matters pertaining to the pigskin and the horschidc, George holds unrivaled claim to the title of chief statistician. Confidentially, George aspires to enter the field of politics, for which purpose he will study Law. We. therefore, express our best wishes to Fordham's future Alderman. 245EDMUND A. PRINCE. A.B. “Ed" Brooklyn Preparatory School Freshman Workshop Freshman Football Junior Prom Committee Chairman, Freshman One-Act Plays Committee Varsity Football, 2, 3 Sophomore Vigilance Committee Sophomore Dance Committee Harvester Club, t Freshman Forum Sydney Smith once remarked chat a certain person was the "vanilla of society.” If we may he permitted the liberty, we should like to call "Ed" the "sauce of our pot-pourri of students." He is that added couch, that extra ingredient which renders the mass a hit more appetizing. "Vanilla" is too delicate a term to apply to "F.d"—roo dainty and subtle ro he compatible with the vigor which he possesses. Rather is he a strong sauce, piquanr and quickening. None of your gently insinuating qualities about him. but rather, immediately apparent robustness of spirit and genuineness of worth. Some day, when the manna of life is particularly flat and tasteless, and even school day memories are faint, we would like to see "Ed" rounding the corner. We are sure that his enthusiasm and verve would again exert over our hearts a stimulating and gloom-dispersing effect. 246Strong, silent men hailing from the Far West are rare nowadays. Yet is "Sam'' one. At least, he is strong and silent, and. given so much, who will haggle over Newark as being not so far west. "Sam" favors handball. Many’s the time and oft have we seen him holding forth on the courts behind St. John's, making quixotic attempts to shatter stony fortresses with the little black hand-grenade. "Prow" has a sunny smile which blesses both himself and us. For it has crept into our hearts there to lay the foundation stone of friendships we arc sure will be lifelong. Many the worried patient will be cheered by this smile when "Provy" enters the ranks of physicians. In following this difficult calling, he has our best wishes. 247Tim; page devoted to "Rudy" is a real embellishment to this book. Not a member of any all" team, he is. nevertheless, the unanimous choice of his classmates for his friendship, sincerity and generous sense of humor. Rudy, or "Mr. John J., please," as he would often remind us, is indeed fortunate in being blessed with that elusive quality—the ability to do the right thing at the right time. Here at Fordham, there is harbored a slight suspicion that he is a direct descendant of Aristotle. At any rate, that ancient sage would be hard pressed by John J. in a philosophical disputation. Lest you entertain the thought that his accomplishments are wholly philosophical, it would not be amiss to remind you that our "Rudy” was always interested in events social Where there was a Fordham dance, there was he. All of which leads us to believe that our box will make good as an instructor ol romance languages. 248Fordhamite. opnmisr, logician and gentleman—rhat's "Bob." With a warm smile that is nothing short of contagious, it was inevitable that Bob" should surround himself with a host of friends at Fordham. It was his ready optimism that helped to dispel all thoughts of "summer-school,” or made you feel that Ford ha ill's team would come out on top despite the odds. When in Senior, the Maroon and the Ram claimed his journalistic prowess, "Bob" capably applied himself to the task, with the same optimism which marked his strides in other fields. We feel confident that he will surmount the obstacles of life with the same genial smile that has earned him a high place in the hearts of his classmates. 249JOSEPH B. PYLE. A.B. 'Joe” Fordham Preparatory School D.ty .ftudrntt' faJjlttt We were always glad to have "Joe about, and lor many reasons. First of all, he has a discriminating sense of humor and so he serves as a kind of dial, which registers a good joke bv a pleasant laugh, and a poor one bv nothing worse than silence. Akin to this gift are his general solidity and practicability. We feel dependent on Joe" in practical matters he answers our questions so well. He has a genius for keeping a host of vital facts at lus finger-tips what jobs arc now open to a student. whether the bulls or bears arc gaining in Wall Street, and the entire basketball schedule before publication. If at times "Joe" found that some of us were carried too far aloft by philosophical reflections he directly told us to take our toes off the moon. This was bringing us down to earth. We thank him. He was always right The world holds no strangeness for Joe." He has always had it solved. He probable has some simple method of attack already planned which will carry him ncatlv through all barriers to success without the usual unnecessary explosions 250THOMAS J QUINN, A.D. “Tom" All Hollows Institute Sophomore Re pres at u fit Vigilance Commit tee Freshman Workshop Harvester Club, J, 4 Sodaist), , 2, J, 4 Mimes ami Mummers, 2, J. 4 French Ctseo, } Odds bodkins, zounds, and by my halidom." A queer gathering of words— surely not an exact text from Sir Walter Scott. But. it will have to do. We have no orher quotation for “Tom" to speak, and we are eager to hear him. Here he comes now with a crowd of merrymakers, making the welkin ring. There he is. srriking a pseudo-dramatic pose and giving voice to some garbled words which he alone could remember in their proper sequence. We would have it thus, our last scholastic tribute to "Tom," that we mention his dramatic abilities and his propensity for the mock tragic. Would that we could always hear his voice—cheering to our hearts. "What ho. Sir Thomas, ait atqut ule. By my troth, tvvas a merry four years . . . .” 251The perfect understanding and unusual sympathy with which ' Jack” treats the foibles of his fellows would tempt us to describe him as the romantic gentleman The warmth of his personality, his considerate humor and his high ideals engender in others a happier outlook on life and a truer appreciation of friendship. That same sincerity and courtesy which characterize his actions as friend and comrade, could not go unappreciated in circles perhaps more discerning, which explains, perhaps, why "Jack" is as popular in the ballroom as on campus. Surely these qualities which have so endeared him to us, will serve him well in his chosen work. We part from him bearing fond memories of his loyalty to friends and his devotion to ideals. 25?And thus wc come to "Jerry," rhe owner of a friendly smile and an unending supply of wit—an irresistible combination which, wc found, removed many dark clouds from the academic horizon. "Jerry” has devoted much time here in chemical research and in trying to put Humpty Dumptv together again, for he intends to enter the medical profession. Wc have enjoyed his wit, his humor, and the pleasantness of his smile, feeling assured that the brightness of that smile will relieve many ills of mind and body.DANIEL LEO REARDON, A.LV "Dan'' St. Mary’s Academy, Glens Falls, N.Y.

You know him. of course the boy with the infectious sense of humor, the enviable disposition, the winning smile. It is our belief that "Jim's" smile plays a very important part in his ability to make friends so quickly and so easily, but it is his many line qualities of character which hold them. Far back in Freshman, we became aware that "Jim" possessed one of the most pleasing tenor voices of which our Glee Club could boast, when our carlv social function was enlivened by his harmonizing. May your life, "Jim," give back to you in full measure the same gayetv and laughter which you gave to us. 253as you look inco the sparkling jovial eves of the youth above, don't you feel a lx. desire to confide in him? These long-lashed orbs arc indicative of his whole disposition. "Lee" is possessed of a personality that many would give anything to own. His sense of humor will carry him over the many rough spots of heartless medical school, and we hope, case those unending hours that intervene between the calls of "first" patients. "Lee" is open-hearted usually, taking us all into his affections. But he has some clearly-defined antipathies. These are found among the rivals of Fordham. So we warn ye, men of Holy Cross and N. V. U., ware Ins surgeon's knife! 256Today big business asks that colleges give it dependable men. We arc sending ■ Joe.” For he has proved himself worthy of our trust. Being a descendant of the early settlers, he has come naturally bv those qualities which made them so successful in facing the wilderness. Honesty and reliability arc the qualities of which we speak. With these, one can conquer new worlds both material and spiritual. "Joe” has chosen Law as his profession. The study of such a profound subject is indeed in keeping with his serious nature. We give him up to it with no little reluctance and with a firm hope in his future success. 257T)ill is one of the several reasons why college life is hearable. His ready wit and -L unfailing good-humor have enlivened many a day that has assumed funereal aspect because of eagerly awaited, yet ominously forboding orals. He is a raconteur of no mean ability, and his flair for relating humorous incidents to illustrate his ideas has led us to suspect that he must grace many a dinner with his sparkling conversation. But Rip s' keenness has a serious side and is a factor that has aided materially in his laboratory research His scientific "yen” has constantly manifested itself throughout his college course. In a world where true humor and scholarly qualities form a rare combination, "Bill's” talents will be at a premium, and success will be his. And whatever vicissitudes may arise, the armor of his optimism will prevail. 258THOMAS F. ROBINSON, , A B.

To see him is to like him. In the fall of Freshman, "Tom was a star of the Class eleven. Later, he turned his efforts to boxing, and opposing welterweights quickh learned to respect his prowess in the "manly art.” In other seasons, by his masterful leadership, he directed the cheers for the toiling athletes and thus played an important part in their victories. Laughing his way into the hearts of his fcllownicn, "Tom" will reach the heights and orhers will shout his praises. 259THOMAS J. ROBINSON, A.B. “Tom” Xavier High School rasa ' -waal Thf. memory of Tom Robinson will always serve to keep alive one particular aspect of the years we have spent at Fordham, and that is, the good times. “Tom” was ever the playboy. In the midst ol almost every group of merrymakers, “Tom” could he found making merry or playing as strenuously as the best of them. However, he was not without his serious moments as certain philosophy professors can testify, since “Tom's” moments of serious thought usually resulted in stupendous difficulties which he never failed to propound in the philosophy class. If some time someone should coin a phrase, “philosophical playboy " we feel certain that "Tom" Robinson will have been his inspiration. 260DUNSTAN COLLINS ROONEY, A.B.

At Fordham, dramatics made its call, a clear call that could not he denied. Collins was not found wanting. They tell a story of Ambition seeking the sun and the stars on dusty roads and windblown plains with tireless pace. We would say that Ambition is Collins middle name. He knows when to be serious, yet in that make-up there lurks a running laughter, the appreciative vein, the joy of companionship. That depth of feeling and sympathetic affection, the laugh, the hardy tear are not these the reward of the soul? These are born on the stage of life. 261Success at Fordham is not attained without effort, and the ordinary obstacles to the wooing of knowledge have baffled many a worthy fellow. Hence, one must especially admire the man who has. besides all rhese, surmounted the extra curricular obstacle of living in Jersey. The man we have reference to is Rosy. " Though nurtured m Union City, he has lived it down, and made us forget everything about his place of birth except that it has produced a tine fellow, and an ambitious, resourceful and excellent scholar.

"Con” Bridgeport High School A regular fellow, brimful of sportsmanship and fair play, well liked by all who know him and although a man of many affairs, "Con" is withal a modest fellow and not given to talk of his various occupations. In his last two years, he has occupied the dignified philosopher's chair, refuting in his clear logical manner the tenets of false philosophy. Equipped with admirable-thinking facilities, he is always sure to be heard from in his philosophical discussions. But glory in the field of science appeals to ’ Con'' and research work will claim his attention after Commencement. With such tine characteristics, you will agree with us that he has the making of a great man whose name will some day grace the hall of fame. 263It is usualb rather difficult to find an excess of good qualities in a classmate after we have seen four years of him. But with “Bill" it is different, somehow. His unfailing effervescence of good spirit and the depth of his character have prevented his becoming commonplace. In the long and serious years of college work, we have had "BruggyV kaleidoscopic nature to cheer us and his unchanging friendliness to rely upon when in need of ir.

Whatever be his future life work, niav the outside world recognize in him the genial, witty, talented, scholarly Catholic gentleman that we have found and may thev find the appreciation and the affection for him that we have. 266From the sunkissed groves and the rockbound coasts of Stamford, Connecticut, came young Peter Rvan to do a four years' stretch up the Bronx River at that famous institution, Fordham College. Though he knew very well that he was going to meet some desperate characters, ’ Pete ’ failed to arm himself with anything except a smile. However, "Pete's smile proved to he a weapon more dangerous than it seemed, for with it. we know he has conquered all those with whom he has come in contact. Among the memories which are soon to become our treasures of the past, it is certain none will be more pleasurably recalled than that friendly good fellowship that was ever "Pete" Ryan's. 267The name Sansonc needs no introduction to Fordham circles. "Bib” is but the latest bearer of its coat of arms at this institution and like all who have gone before, he bore his trust commcndably. We fear no accusations of presumption when we ask: Arc there any more at home like you?” “Bib” ran up a great list of athletic activities. Boxing, basketball and handball followers know and revere him. In the opinion of many, it was a great loss to Ford-ham's leather-pusher enthusiasts when "Bib” decided that his pre-medical studies required most of his time. An excellent student, endowed with a magnetic personality and a large share of modesty, "Bib” has Elinor's famous pronoun, much!

Talcs of impossible exploits and claims of being a member of unheard-of professions lend a rare color to ' Jimmie’s" personality. "Jim" carried rhis exuberance to all games, dances and plays. His remarks at each were always well suited and mirth-provoking. We shall remember many an isolated "crack” of his when a multitude of formal information has slipped from our memory. 270From rh.it citadel of erudition in Brooklyn. Boys' High, came a serious and earnest student in the person of “Sid." For the four years that he has been with us his conscientious work has been rewarded by securing for him an enviable place in Fordham's scholastic records. Being endowed with the scientific spirit, “Sid" is not prone to embellish his conversation with fanciful words either in or out of class and his philosophical problems have always been marked with that keenness worthy of him. With this seriousness of purpose, "Sid" has a charming manner that has won for him a number of friends. His modesty and appreciation of worth while things will only serve to weld these friendships long after '29 has passed from Fordham. Medicine seems to have called "Sid” and if sincerity and ability arc given their due, we have no hesitancy in voicing “Sid's" success. 271ROY JOHNNE SCHMIDT, A.B.

Many of us have envied him the serious and industrious attitude which was his throughout his career at Fordham. Always a good mixer, he carries with him the best wishes of the whole class for the happiness and success that we feel sure he will attain by whatever path to glory he chooses. 272 BERNARD A.

Fiery, irrepressible, Barney" was fittingly chosen as one of our cheerleaders. Seldom were the stands silent while Barney danced and capered and called for the cheers that sent many Fordham teams to victory.

We always enjoyed conversing with Frank and working with him in any of his various activities. For he is pre-eminently a worker a waster of no words. Such qualities are rare, but when found, arc rewarded by the admiration and affection of the discoverer. Regarding Frank s success, we may give our hopes full flame, for he is sure to realize them We have found reason to love and to admire him and feel that others must do likewise. 275LAWRENCE SCULLY, A 13. “Larry" Bridgeport High School Ciltt Club, 2, ), 4 Counteritut Club, 2, 3 Si.

Their seeking after truth carries them far away from the observer into lands which most have never explored. It seems, however, from our experience with "Larry," that it is a well-rewarded act to follow such men in their flights, stumble as we may on the course, for there is finally gained a wisdom which is universal, dispersing forever Worry and her llock by the age-old principles of philosophic wisdom. But "Larrv" possesses a warmth of heart that denies the tendency which such thoughts may have toward making the subject cold or irreproachable. He is much sought after—both for advancement in knowledge and the warm satisfaction of friendship. 276ANTHONY L. SHELFO. B.S.

It is this quality of steadiness that moves us to predict for him the attainment of whatever goal he may set for himself in this life. He has shown his ability to get results with his calculating and practical methods in those activities which held his interest. Tony' expects to enter the medical world, and we must congratulate him on his choice, for we all have ample evidence of not only his conscientious and diligent work, bur also his aptitude for scientific endeavor. 277JOHN F.

John has managed in some manner never to appear embarrassed when called upon to recite, although it might he that he had been occupied throughout the entire previous period in drawing pictures of Mutt and Jetf ” He somewhere would cull enough knowledge to evoke a congratulatory "very good" from the prof Outside of class. John conversed easily on almost any topic, there being few men better informed on any subject of collegian interest. Here. too. he exemplified a rare appreciation of art, although it might be that of running back punts. Getting a rise our of "Johnnie" was a distinction greater than special menrion in most sports columns. W’c know that John s easy m.mncr and broad knowledge will carry him far along rhe road to success. 278To some, the intricacies of science and the depths of metaphysics present a wall of discouraging resistance; to others, they send a call as attractive and irresistible as the call of the sea to a sailor. These men take a passionate enjoyment in delving into a laboratory's mysteries and in joining a discussion of philosophy. Such a one is "Bernie." His excelling mind has qualified him admirably to become an outstanding scholar—and a success at every turn of life. Yet, sidc-bv-sidc and inseparable with our notion of Bernie" as a scholar is our own remembrance of his easy-going and pleasant nature Perhaps here also the philosopher is reflected, but here the practical philosopher sees the vanity of worry and the need of making friends happy- and lias somehow given him an interest in the pleasant and vet skill-revealing pastimes of bridge and tennis. Good-bv, "Bernie." you have with you our admiration and sincere regard. 279In the category of rhe studious, we place "Sylvv." He is a student of keen intellectual powers and a worker of great steadiness. From the days of our Freshman caps to those when the Senior finals tormented most of us, “Em” has been a scholar of highest grade In the contest for class honors, he has stood among the leaders for four vears without showing a sign of scholastic weakening. "Em" has a passion for dissecting cats in the laboratory. Someone has said that he is more of a philosopher than a biologist and haunts the lab in hopes of finding the elusive Vital Principle. Years from now. we ll lind "Em" among our promising medicos, winning for himself a place in the gallcrx of successful alumni. 280PATRICK W SKEHAN, A.B. ‘ Pat- Xavier High School Frtjbmun Forum Coumil of D butt. 3 When "Pat'’ came to Fordham. he had completed reading all of Shakespeare s and every hook of the Mcrriwcl! series having formed a great liking for each, bur apparently no preference for either. For "Pat" was always a genius playing with the game of life. He took great delight in solving every puzzling position on the handball court and would intermingle amid these hours of play protracted spurts of studying wherein he achieved a rare and deep mastership of all subjects. This playful spirit led "Pat" to recognize no matter of unusual concern as sufficient to cause him a moment s worry and yet, if he could be of service to a fellow classmate, or owed a duty to an organization, he left no stone unturned in rendering the assistance on time. We admire "Pat" for his intellectual gifts and fine physical stature, arc inspired by a character which is irreproachable but never prudish, and arc proud to boast his loyal friendship as a possession. 281In 1925, the collective eve of sport was centered on Fordham's “great '25 team.” That was a team that indeed made Fordham history and which keeps a record that is unequalled to the present day. Among the stars—Manning, Zakzcwski, Leary and Graham—on the wcll-organ-i .cd machine, was a certain Freshman, playing a clever game in the position of tackle, working shoulder to shoulder with these veterans. It was our own “Captain John Smith." The prestige that John gained in his first year was sustained by the excellent work that he did in Sophomore and Junior years. So when the time came to choose the football captain for the season of 1928, John was honored with the position. A true Fordham man. conscientious in sports, in studies and in friendship, may lie have a deserved success in the world as lie has our friendship and esteem — "Captain John." 282WALTER J. SMITH. A.B.

The inconsequential gossip and time-wasting pastimes of his companions evoked no word of criticism from "Bill."

We then come to know a man who copes silently wirh every problem that rises to confront him. complaining not at all, and generously making known the solution at which he has arrived. To this sincerity, there is added liking for companionship which makes "Charlie" a pal upon whose proximity we have come to depend for our peace of mind.

Throughout his college days, he pursued a course that led to the pinnacle of academic achievement that he had visualized from the first, and for which he was willing to sacrifice so much. But with that sacrifice has come the warmth of satisfaction that we feel on the completion of some monumental work. And it may indeed be said that "Jim” has completed a monumental work, for when he shall essay into the tempestuous waters of his chosen profession there will be with him the lessons so well learned and the convictions so hardly kepr that are but an echo of the days at Old Rose Hill days of sunlight and friendship, of buoyant activity, of golden hour upon golden hour, and of the companionable laughter of good friends. 286FRANCIS A.

During his four years ar Fordham, Sully has given not a little of his time to newspaper writing, as is evident from his versatility as Fordham sports correspondent for the famous Brooklyn Eagle. In addition to his other activities, "Frank" has added Ins golden tenor to the Glee Club and has been a very active member of the organization's publicity committee. Frank has chosen Law as his favored line of endeavor. That he will be successful is unquestionable if good-fellowship and strong character count for anything in the world.

Many admired him from afar for his brilliant mind and faithful devotion to every Ford ham activity; others were privileged to gain an inti marc knowledge of his high ideals and to draw inspiration from his model character. His friendship is to be prized as one of the treasures gained from College life. In contemplating his career as a physician, we are not content to say that he will be successful, but confidently assert that with such ability and such habits he will develop into a model for his profession. 292From Dc Witt Clinton came two of Fordham's foremost basketball stars: Max and his boon companion Bo Adams. For the two years that "Toby' has been a member of the Varsiry, it is no mere coincidence that Fordham has possessed teams of championship caliber. But "Toby” will not be remembered for his athletic ability alone. Coupled with his success on the court was a sincere modesty and seriousness in class work that held the respect and esteem of his classmates. His strenuous work in the gym never interfered with his scientific pursuit in the biology and chemistry departments; his membership was more than nominal in the Mendel Club where he contributed to the activities by his pcrscvcrcnce and steadfastness. "Toby's" classmates will ever remember him as a genial, friendly man, representative cf all that is Fordham. 293John Tomich certainly was a playboy it" ever there was one. To be in the thick of all merrymakers, to laugh with, to laugh at, and at times, when the joke was on himself, to be laughed at, such was the wav John spent all his leisure moments outside the classroom. And (this is the sad part of the story) it was not unknown that John should do a little laughing in class and not in the most unnoiiccable manner either. Among the high schools. Regis stands apart for having given us, in the person of “Johnny,” a friend whose sense of humor never let gloom long abide. 299It has been said that John is a keen lover of games of chance (in the good sense). Perhaps this mark of character can give us an insight into the why and wherefore of his daily journey from Larchmont. With the philosophical trend of mind, he holds that chance, viewed as such, is merely the absence of positive surety. Together with this he links rhe grand old saying, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder." Our most vivid impression of John is one of curly hair and knickers, which may, in some measure, account for his resolute nature. Resolute? Whenever John wants a window closed, it stays closed. But when he wants it open—a miracle has happened. 295ERMITE J. TERREGROSSA "Torrie" Dc Wiu Clinton High School MtnJtl Club, I, 2 Frtibmjn bjitb.il Torrie" is the pride of rhe chemistry department.

But. sometimes, the most subtle artifice has resulted in the most obvious discovery. Thus we find the amusing paradox that "Dave's" shyness and modesty have given us an indication of the sturdy manhood which has won him so many friends and admirers. Four years have been more than enough to give us a fair indication what the world outside may expect of "Dave." Firsr, there is an irresistible naturalness which in this day of sham means so much; and then there is a quiet reserve quite out of proportion to the manlv spread of his chest, and a quietness that seems to be born of an inner dignity and which has regulated all his actions through four years of College.

He is a young man who is not even remotely conscious of the possibility of failure. Time and again, on the gridiron in hotly contested struggles, in the classroom when arguments of philosophical nature waxed vehement and abstruse, and in the discussion of the Council of Debate, "Frank" has manifested this blissful unawarcncss, and consequently, emerged victorious. It is not strange, then, that he has chosen the Law as the profession in which he is most likely to succeed. We, who have known him, await the passage of a few years, that we may hail his "arrival" and say to all the world, "We told you so." 4 FRANK W. WEARIN, Jr., A.B.

His willingness to cooperate at all times and in all things is partly the cause of his success in making a vast number of friends during the four years we have known him Not the least of Frank's many virtues is his cheerful smile and it is with this that he usually greets each one of us.

Besides his regular curriculum in the Arts course, he has taken part in many extra-curricula activities. He has been active in the Glee Club during his four years in school. He was also Business Manager of the Ram, President of the St. Vincent dc Paul Society, and a very active member of the Mimes and Mummers. "Eddie" is remembered as always gliding along the clm-Jincd path, bent on another mission for dear old Alma Mater. He is quiet because placid—but always busy.

But John's urban relationship is clearly defined, for he comes from West New York, and, though we have never been there, we are sure that it is infinitely superior to East New York. In spite of all these matters, however, he is a quiet fellow, with an air of depths unplumbed and a positive genius for putting braggarts in their place with that attentive, half-smile which says. Iam listening, but don't go too far." And yet. his own inbred courtesy has never permitted him to voice a single derogatory comment. He is one of the few that we have known, whom we immediately dubbed, "A good scout." 308RAYMOND C. WHITE. A.B. •Ray” Fordham Preparatory School Football Manager, 1 Quill Club. 2 Sodality, i. 2 Tall and handsome, faultless in his grooming, gracefully nonchalant, and firm in his convictions, Ray adds to these enviable qualifications an engaging personality which has made him the despair of ladies and the envy ol men. These combined characteristics of which any one might be justly proud have in no wav afTected Ra 's” mental equilibrium but together with them he offers a subtle sense of humor, a genial disposition, and a friendship that is lasting and true. Aside from these accomplishments, Ray” is also a clever and conscientious student. In Freshman year, we were amazed at his knowledge of Latin, his free translations of Vergil. Then in turn chemistry, physics and philosophy fell before his overwhelming onslaughts. Were we to hazard a guess as to "Ray’s” future we would predict that one day we will read of him as a diplomat who combines the manners of a Don Juan, the fashion of a Beau Brummcl and the ability of a Webster. 309IT is the aim of each and every man to have a sound mind in a sound body and we bear witness to "Ray's" success in attaining that aim. As a footnote to our testimony wc should like to add a little pity for the professors who have tried and tried in vain to quench the flow of "Ray's" objections, and for those unfortunates who have tried, and likewise in vain, to match his physical strength. If, in the course of his future life, "Rav" exhibits such determination and will to succeed as he has shown here at Fordham, there can be no doubt that he will soon grasp the palm of victory and be a source of great pride to our Alma Mater. 310JOHN F WILKINSON, A It.

Coming from the Prep, lie was familiar with the way things were run here, and was successful enough in the demonstrating of his ability to be elected to office in Freshman. He had the natural physical advantages necessary to shine in Sophomore-Freshman activities, and earned a place on the Vigilance Committee. "Wilkie" is an impressive speaker. His position, attitude and voice serve him well, naturally. He is a good singer, and spent many an afternoon with the dee Club. This voice training will be quite a help to him in his chosen profession. John intends to be a lawyer, and we believe that he is naturally fitted for the profession. We are confident of his success, and feel that some day Fordham will be proud of her son. 311WILLIAM GERARD WINTERS A.B. "Billy” Xavier High School Freshman Football ■if tt stan: Manager Basketball, 1 Day Students' Sodality, 1, 2 Vigilance Committee, 2 From the shores ot llockaway came our own "Billy” to pursue his scholastic endeavor at our Alma Mater. Long ago, "Billv” found that any ordinary bodv was quite insufficient to contain his great heart anJ accordingly expanded. With the expansion came that jovial manner of his which has endeared him to all his fellow-students, and will continue to win friends and admirers for him in his future life. Because of his winning ways and his smiling countenance, we feel sure that "Billv” will succeed eminently in his chosen profession and bring heaps of glorv to dear old Ford ham. 312Became of his unique athletic abilities, we arc apt to overlook rhis pleasantly smiling fellow as a student and a friend. He is a man who has mastered knowledge just as he has basketball and football. A man whose sincerity of purpose, whose unaffected modesty have won for him the popularity and admiration of all—such is "Zack." We shall ever remember "Jim" for that colorful, absorbing personality with which he gripped the Crowd. As a basketball star, he was action itself, a past master at the art of back-hand shots. On the gridiron, he was a fierce, plunging back, a dauntless, really brilliant, interference man. In later days, it will be our pleasure ro think of "Zack" as athlete and scholar, and our boast to call him friend. 313Thlrl arc those who dash with agitated minds from activity to activity having scant time for breath and but a moment to say 'hello”; there are others better contented to sit back peaceably and watch the world with interest, who love to talk and revel in reflection. Of this latter group is Frank. 11c observes the activity of many but directs his own along but few lines upon the principle that what is to be done should be done thoroughly. His quiet nature has a dignity of its own. His keen observation is highly valued by companions. Accordingly, he, who is well liked by all and loved by many, carries our best wishes into the teaching profession. 314An Ancient Chorus This mounting thunder is the sound of breaking Crowned with sweet music and the paths men take To far horizons where the sunset (ires are burning In quiet radiance while the evening hours wake. This legion chorus is a song ac parting Sung in the glory of one twilight hush Where summer breezes sway the whispering elms To blend their shadows with the moment's llusli. This sad surmising when the eyes grow misted Comes with the well-loved hours, the sunlit ways We've trod together, and golden friendship’s measure Round with the sacred crest of college days. Fordham! Though music stir on wings eternal There shall be singing when thy sons depart Strangely magnificent, nor will rhe falling echoes Die for one moment nor desert the changeless heart. 315The Junior Class Howard A. Seitz Francis S. Carroll Herbert V. Neilan Roger Scully President Vice-President Secretary 1 roisterer Practically every phase of College activity registers among its promoters at least several members of the Junior Class. The estimable Ram has three members on the directorial board; the Council of Debate is represented in its public discussions by three of the Class; the Mimes and Mummers depends upon one of us entirely lor the management of the stage and upon several others lor its literary efforts; the baritone soloist of the Glee Club and fifteen of the choristers; five of the Editors of the Ford-ham Monthly; three members of the Quill Club; three officers of the Sodality and six scientists of the Mendel Club all belong to our Class. So you see that 1930 is rather well represented in the workshops of the University. Howard S. Seitz is the President of the Class. Mr. Seitz combines the best abilities with tremendous diligence and ambition which, despite its incessancc. never degenerates into that hideous disease of the college mediocrity, ' heeling.'’ A member of 31Sseven extra-curricula activities, Mr. Seitz lias devoted most of his time to the Rum, of which he is the Business Manager, the Glee Club and the Council of Debate. Among the debaters, the work of Mr. White, Mr. Quinn, and Mr. McAulifTe especially deserve mention. All have participated in a number of public debates and have been effective in winning decisions for the Fordham teams. Many of the fine issues of the Rum arc due to the work of Juniors. Mr Harold Connolly, Mr. Philip Hollenbach and Mr. Richard Calnan comprise the Editorial Board of the weekly and their work has been uniformly excellent throughout the entire year. Mr. James Ivers, Daniel J. Kern, and W. O. McCuc. as the veteran News Editors, have been the reporters of more important events around the campus. William F. Lynch, of the sport staff, has been the assistant to Cas Adams, the Editor of his department. The stories of many of the football anil basketball games of the Varsity were the assignments of this clever commentator Mr. Lynch studies the game and takes especial delight in discovering the ultimate causes of a team’s success or failure. Herbert Ncilan is the substitute quarterback of the football team and regular center fielder on Coach Coffee's nine, Neal Weed and Johnny Little arc members of the swimming team, and Morgan Anglim is the representative of the Class on the cage squad. Jack Labornc and Joseph Kraft, two of the Maroon's most promising baseball players, complete the Junior quota of athletes. Apparently, more of the Juniors arc better fitted to sing than to kick a football. The Glee Club has fifteen members of the Class; there were many more applicants whom the moderator could not accommodate So you see that our inclinations arc more to the cultural side. Mr. Seitz represents the Class on the directorial board, and Philip Hollenbach is the baritone soloist. Although the Ruin has snatched many of the Class's writers, some of the elect were saved from the Rum and unselfishly devoted themselves to the Monthly. Chief among these is John Walsh, the Editor-in-Chiei elect, whose numerous contributions on the drama and modern literature in general have received wide and favorable comment from literary circles within and without the campus. George Swift is another Junior on whose account the Class shines with reflected glory. George is a poet; more than that he is a real lover of good literature. William F. Lynch, William White and Thomas Cahalan are the other two Juniors worthy of mention. Thus we have a panorama of the Class. Some engaged in reading and writing, some in orating and arguing, some in study and thought. Three hundred young men, some sincerely interested in gaining knowledge, some (this grieves us) more interested in being mentioned in the Ram or in being left alone. We wish that we might mention every name and put thereafter a star, for, even if we are not all perfect, we have our finer moments, and it would be remarkably interesting to know us all. 319p——1History of the Class of 1931 William McMahon President Charles Lynch ..... I "ict-Prestdent Antonio J. Pisani . Secretary C h a r lls Jon ts........................................................ Treasurer after suffering a year of persecution in accordance with the established tradition, l the Class of '31 returned to receive the scepter of Sophomore dispensers of |u$tice to unruly Freshmen Though four months earlier had seen them bowed under the same yoke, there was no pity for rhe newcomers and the customary rule books, maroon tics and Freshman caps were distributed by the now lordlv Sophs. No longer did the largest class to enter Fordham manifest that meekness of spirit and diffidence of manner, so characteristic of them the previous year. In its place appeared a nonchalance and savoir faire worthy of "Light a Murad" notoriety. Before the first quarter had passed, elections were held and four capable men, all prominent in extra-curricula activities, were voted into office. Of the officers of Freshman year, William McMahon alone retained his position "Mac's” excellence in presiding over the executive board in Freshman, with Ins grid fame and pleasing personality, won for him the coveted position of President. To Charles Lynch, noted for his prowess as a boxer, fell the Vice-Presidency. Mr. Lynch has fulfilled capably the duties performed bv "Ray” Hurley. Antonio J Pisani, known for his 322work as Sophomore Manager of baseball, gained a victory over Edward Ricca for the secretarial porrfolio and Charles Jones, with a great football reputation, was chosen as Treasurer. In the realm of athletics, the Class has made itsell prominent. All the Varsity teams number among their members second-year men. Even though last year's Freshman football team by brilliant and consistent victories had shown high promise, many wondered if these young stars could make the grade of Varsity competition. But when, in the first two games, the superiority of the Sophs gained for them nine berths on the first srring eleven and, when, after a hard fought season, a fiery little center named Siano unanimously won the Captaincy, doubt gave way to confidence On the basketball court. 31 was represented by Zalcski. Gclle. Stephens, Ryan and Wisniewski, whose work, though not equal to that of our famous five, merited their appearance in most of the games as the second line of Coach Kelleher’s "shock troops.” As all of our Varsity members arc graduating in June, it is expected that these men will form the nucleus of next year's five. The members of the Class are now anxiously awaiting the arrival of the baseball season to see their classmates. Andrews, Aube and Foley, who fared so well last year, once more in action. Ir is expected that Coach Coffey will find some valuable material in Elccwicz, Hurley, Shccrin, Maynard, Facia and Montalli, all of whom performed so brilliantly on the Freshman nine In swimming, the presence of "Dick' Winters, "Cozy" Dolan, Hoffman, Melville and Waldie helped greatly in bringing our natatores through the season undefeated. So, in glancing through this resume of the activities of the "sporting Sophomores," the departing Seniors need feel no apprehension for the athletic future of Fordham. In all fields of sport, '31 may be justly proud of its representatives and the records they have made thus far. The Class of '31 boasted a number of actors and playwrights. The excellence with which Vincent Carlin played the part of the weak-willed Roihri o in the Varsity production "Othello" left no doubt as to his ability. The promising playwrights were Lane, Correa and Amante, all of whom showed their wares in their Freshman One-Act Play Contests. "Vin" Carlin and John Lane were to be found among the deep-thinking debaters of the Council. Carlin was chosen to represent Fordham in the Annual Intercollegiate Oratorical Contest anil Lane, who represented '31 last year at the St. Louis Sodality Convention, was influential in bringing about our own great Sodality Convention on February 23rd and 24th. Many clubs, in their elections, chose Sophomores to lead them during the past year. The work of George Collins as President of the Mendel Club, of Ginc Giorgini as President of the French Club and of Frank Sullivan as President of the Spanish Club gives ample evidence that in rhese, as in all other activities, the members of '31 arc interested and energetic. T(» pus fi gi: -and the second chapter of '31 s history has come to a close. With the fall, the Class returns to the responsibilities of Junior and from all indications it will cheerfully and loyally sustain the glory of Alma Mater. 323 JTr $$ m?xnHistory of the Class of 1932. Clay Buckhout William Kuhn Or. den Dates Frank Rio President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer The idea is in no way novel or startling. Vet, let us become fanciful and imagine ourselves attending a theater. The play being presented is a four-act masterpiece that combines in its wide scope peals of laughter, tears of dreary sadness, wild, exulting applause of success and fame. Lights grow dim and the heavy, ornate curtain rises upon the lirst scene. It is a college campus; the time—the morning of September 12. 1928. The last odors of a dying summer perfume the air, birds carol a welcoming chorus as a band of Freshmen resolutely wend their way up a winding path in arduous pursuit of Higher Education. Along the shaded walk groups of superior looking young men eve the newcomers with supercilious glances. All the actors are waiting for their cues. Finally the suppressed murmur of voices rises and the play is on. On the first day of school the yearlings were led to Collin's Auditorium. There they were addressed by College dignitaries and assigned to their respective sections of Science and Art. When introduced to their professors, it was found that the Fates 526had been unusually kind tw them. Fathers Downey and McGarvcv and Mr. Kelly, S.J., were their mentors in Latin; Fr Fremgen elucidated the Socratean methods and the origin of the Greek chorus; Fr. Devereux and Messrs. Liegev and McCabe led them through che mazes of English literature and poetry; and Frs. Shea and Fitzpatrick shed some light on the evidences of religion. The next day found the welcoming committee of the Sophomore keenly alive to their duties. Knowing the natural reticence of Freshmen, the Sophs made them feel at ease with tokens of friendship in the shape of maroon tics, caps and handbooks containing the brightest bits of Sophornoric wisdom. The rirst activities engaged in bv the Freshmen were the interclass contests wirh the Sophs. However, so diffident were the Frosh to assert their strength and su-periorirv that both rhe swimming meet and the rug of war were relinquished ro rheir rivals. In football, the Freshmen played and won their only game of the season against St. John's Prep but this brief showing brought ro light promising material in Conway, Fischer, Tobin, Dumas and Davis. With the coming of the basketball season, our youngest members "got going" by producing from their ranks a quintet that bids fair to equal our Varsity live. Baker, Mulligan, Parker, Haves, Costello, Burns and Comerford, in winning all their games, have contributed brilliant playing of chain pionship caliber. The swimming team of '32 won its initial contest by defeating the Washington High team. As narators. Harms, Scheel, Whalen, Rutzen, Markey, White and Cox were conspicuous. Just before Christmas, the Class elections were held. Clay Buckhout was given the honored seat of Presidency, William Kuhn was awarded the Vicc-Prcsidcncv; Frank Rio received charge of the treasury and Ogden Dates won the position of Secretary. In the fields of forensic and drama, 1932 has been brilliantly conspicuous. For the firsr rime in many years, the major role in a Varsity production was awarded to a Freshman when Horace V. McNally was chosen to portray the title role in "Othello. " Mr. McNally reflected great credit on his Class by the approval which he won from both the faculty and the student body. With an excellent voice and superb carriage he gives promise of becoming Fordham's most famous Thespian. In minor parts, Cox and Costello did especially well and Amendalarc, Campbell, Coughlin, Gaffney, Paradine, and Oberle shouted their "Hurrahs" with amazing vigor, while Collins. Gerber. Pisam, anil others shifted the scenes for the actors. The Freshman Forum debating team, comprising O'Connell, Tracey and Crowley, completely overwhelmed a team from N. Y. U. In literary fields, '32 is well represented by Collins. Coughlin, Hein. Kelly, McKenna and White on the Ram staff and Coughlin writing for the Monthly. The Glee Club, Orchestra, Band and other organizations, all include Freshmen in their membership. Thus the first act draws to a close. The actors have spoken and played their parts with distinction. They have won fame and glory that will reflect upon themselves and on their associates. The first act has revealed and produced great talent and ability. Already the curtain is about to descend ... it falls amid applause and excited talk that sweeps the audience. The beginning was so auspicious that it augurs well fora vivid play. Soon rhe second act will start and the expectations and promises will begin to crystallize until they are completely realized in the glorious climax of the fourth act. 327Immaculate Conception Sodality Howard J McNally, ’29 Clarbnce Crysler, '29 James J. McCarthy, '29 William R. White, '30 John J. Drummond, 30 Pit jeer First Assistun r Second Assistant Secretary Treasurer The present year has seen many new features introduced with most encouraging results into the Sodality. The entire body of day student Sodalists were divided into two portions to form the Immaculate Conception Section and the Holy Rosary Section, the former under the solicitous guidance of Fr. Cunningham, S.J., the latter under that of Fr. Downey, SJ The meetings were run in the simplest manner possible, hymns being sung, the litany recited, and a speech delivered each week. Brevity makes for intensity so the response was fervent. A consistently crowded chapel, audible singing and vociferous prayers were unmistakable signs of the place the worship of Our Lady has gained in the hearts of all. 329Holy Rosary Sodality Prefect l int Assistant Second Assistant Secretary Treasurer Joseph J Fitzhenry, 29 Thomas Mi.ir hy, ’29 Frank E. Scully, '29 Joseph A. Doran, 50 . John P. Lane, ‘51 In early March, Fordhams Socialists were privileged to play the part of host to the representatives ol colleges and high schools hailing from places as far distant as Scranton, Pa. The purpose was to organize these Sodalities into a union and so extend the influence of what is to be a nation-wide movement into the East. Under the irresistibly forceful and pleasing leadership of Fr Lord, S.J., this goal was achieved. Ford ha m, as temporary President of the new union, has already taken steps toward a second convention. Fordham’s Sodalists seem to have taken a new enthusiasm and life from the convention as is manifested in the prompt and enthusiastic organization of a Students’ Spiritual Committee, which will unify and direct all religious activities. Here, indeed, is a new foundation of measureless promise for future achievement. 550The Parthenian Sodality Rev. Francis D. O’Loughlin, S.J. A. Sidney Barritt, Jr., 29 Edward P. Whalen, '29 Richard J. Lutz, '29 . Frank C. Murphy, 29 George P. Gervais, '30 Edward Laherty, 29 Director Prefect first Assistant Prefect Second Assistant Prefect Secretary Acolyte Organist The Parthenian Sodality was founded at Fordliam many years ago. It lias since then, been one of the most stable and popular organizations at the College. This is especially gratifying at the present time when many suppose chat there is a lack of interest in religious matters. Each year the candidates for membership are formally received before the student body at the Sodality Mass held in May. This function doses the activity ol the organization for the year. 331The Mendel Club Mr. George L. Collins, 31 Oscar Palatucci. '30 Albeki Klzel, ’30 Thom as J. Ormsby, ’3C J. Rusk in Dallas, ’29 President Vice-President Treasurer Secretary Editor of "Cabmutb" Tiil present vear is the seventh and perhaps the most fruitful in the history of the Mendel Club. The Convention of the Associated Biology Clubs of Catholic Colleges was held at Holy Cross College during Easter week. Mr Leslie Carroll, '30, of Ford-ham officiated in his capacity of President. The Mendel ( lub is the only research society on the campus Its members arc given access to the laboratory in order that they may pursue their individual lines of study. The results of this in independent thought and study are presented for the society's consideration, either at the regular meetings or through the society's monthly organ, the Cabnntth. 332The Harvester Club Jambs Higgins, '29 President Howard Seitz, '30 Vice-President Edward Haly, '29 .... Secretary The Harvester Club of Fordhain University identifies its purpose with the purpose of the missions. While the club strives always to enkindle zeal for the missions among the student body, its major task consists in carrying to some five thousand parochial school children the message of the mission twice each year. The achievements of the present year promise to become quite as great as those of last year when the club was enabled to ship an automobile to Fr. Haves, now in the Philippines, for the club fortunately is continuing under Fr Hanrahan’s inspiring guidance. The zealous endeavors of the members and the society’s intercourse with the mission societies of other colleges give the club all the effectiveness which labor, unity and co-operation can bestow. 333St. Vincent de Paul Society Edward P. Whalen, '29 S. Earl Evans, '29 James E. Higgins, '29 Richard A. Lutz, '29 ... PresiJtnt Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Following the underlying principle of this International Society, the object of the St John the Almsgivcr Conference has been the dissemination ot fruits of charity. During the years since rhe foundation of the society at Fordham, the members have found ample held for their activities in visiting hospitals and teaching catechism. At the present time there are but fifteen members in the society. Since all the work is of a voluntary nature, men are not urged to |oin Members’ activities this year arc-confined to teaching catechism on Sundays at the House of Refuge on Randall's Island. The hospital work has been placed in the hands of a regular committee. However. they have given entertainments on various occasions and in rhe Fall of nineteen hundred and twenty-eight, they sponsored a Glee Club Concert to raise funds for Florida relief. In its modest wav, the socictv is seeking to show an example of charity for charity’s sake. 334Maroon Staff Rev. Fr. Augustus Fremgen Edward }. McNally John K. Carroll Harold M. Callahan Francis G.

'29 THE Fordham Monthly, now nearing its lilticth anniversary, occupies one of the most prominent positions on the campus. Steeped as we arc in the mounring prejudices of the past four vears, it is a monumental task to present an impartial survey of the part which the Class of 1929 played in the collegiate literary world. Therefore, wc leave the task of critical analysis to the exchange columns of those whose province it is to criticize, and content ourselves with an intimate perusal of its academic pages. 336First of all, our praise and thanks arc due to Father Augustus Fremgen, S.J., by whose gentle vet firm hand the Monthly has been shaped along the paths of true literary effort. It is he, more than any other, who has guided the destinies of so many young men through the devious channels of literary apprenticeship to help them shape their thoughts, their ideals, their aspirations, and, finally, to chronicle that expression after it has been formulated into literary composition The first of the Class of 1929 to meet us is Joseph G. Hopkins, occupying the distinguished position of Editor-in-Chief during Senior year. Joining the staff far back in Sophomore, Mr. Hopkins has steadily gained in power and scope with his magic medium the sketch. There is no reader of the Monthly during the past three years who has failed to be charmed by the poetic simplicity of his style and content, and these many gems from his facile pen stamp him as a genuine man of letters. Notable among his recent contributions to the pages of the Monthly were ' In the Spring, " an elegy of the season. '■Shelley,” the word picture which gained so much repute-through numerous exchange columns; and the pungent "Last Night of Don Juan." Mr. John K. Carroll is the first of rhe Senior Editors to be presented. He also joined the staff at the beginning of Sophomore, and has since graced the Monthly 's pages with poetry and prose of surpassing excellence. Blending beauty of thought with clarity of expression, he brought his music to an eloquent pitch, and created an exquisite one-act play in blank verse which, besides winning the College award, was adjudged by critics to be of great poetical merit. Among his recent notable contributions were "Dear Harbor,” "Eternal Voices,” and a group of cleverly conceived "Cinquains.” Mr. Ward Clarke shouldered, and ably carried, the burden of the short story through his three years as Associate Editor No issue was quite complete without some clearly etched portraiture of quaint characters in and around New York, preferably in the neighborhood of Washington Square. Blessed with a sharp wit and easy pen, he wove his delightful talcs of shadowy houses near the old arch, of amber tea in the late afternoon, of happy children and sedate spinsters—in brief, of the stuff with the breath of life in it which makes enjoyable reading. During Junior year, Mr. Harold J. McAulcv began to court the muse rh rough the pages of the Monthly and we have since found delight in the delicate rhyme schemes which he wove, the unusualness of expression which he employed, and the remarkable effects he succeeded in producing with a simplicity of style as a constant factor to lead the reader on. In Senior, three new writers of exceptional talent came forth to claim their rightful places in the Sanctum. Mr. Lester Atwell gave us the wild music of foreign settings in his gems of poetry, while Mr. Richard I Nevin undertook the gigantic task of conducting the Antidote, that ancient and heart-rending enterprise. Mr. Bernard Galligan contributed some fine short stories, products of his work with the Quill Club. Among the Juniors of this year, John V. Walsh, the Assistant Editor, conducted the dramatic column and his critical acumen played havoc with many a Broadway production. Francis X. Connollv wrote of letters and men with equal facility, while William R. White and George Swift proved their ability as poets of rare merit. Reluctantly enough, we place the reins in these new hands since it means relinquishing so many of the dear prerogatives which we came to cherish. But we are compensated in knowing that they have the talent and will to keep the Monthly in its high place among collegiate literary publications. 337w The R;im Robert J. McCarron, 29 Howard Seitz, 30 W. Caswell Adams, ’29 Harold J. McAllev, ’29 Editor-in-Chitf Eu situs s Manager Sports Editor Editorials Ii a stranger should accost a Ford ham itc and inquire of that august gentleman which among the organizations maintained at his College was the most active, the Ram certainly would he included among the leaders. For throughout the College year, the Ram .it the expense of the staff’s untiring labor, acts as official mouthpiece for everything that is Fordham, the herald to undergraduates and alumni alike of the daily progress of the University of which they are a part. Out of the class of journalism, in the spring of 1917 and to fill a need long felt, the Raw had its beginning. Realizing the opportune circumstances, the Reverend Daniel J Quiglev, S.J., Professor of journalism and Mr. Paul O’Keefe, 19. immediately 3)8directed their attention to founding a newspaper at Fordliarn. Preparations were made and the difficult business of organization undertaken so that the Ram made its debut on the campus in 1917. When the Class of ’29 made its initial appearance in the history of Ford ham, Father H. A. NlcGarvey had assumed the official post of Moderator during which year Mr. Arthur Taylor, ’26, served as Editor. Mr. Anthony E. Dupraz was Managing Editor and the finances of the Ram were under the advice of Mr. McGrath, S.J. The succeeding year showed a change of Moderators and Editors, Father Devereux taking Father McGarvev’s place while Mr. Dupraz rose to Editor. In the following year, Mr. Charles B. MeGroddy, '28, became Editor and with him. came a new Business Moderator in the person of Mr. Philip Walsh, S.J. With the beginning of the scholastic year, 1928-29, the business of carrying on the Ram was left to the hands of the Class of ’29. Fr. Devereux, retiring from active service with the Ram, was replaced by Mr. MeGroddy, Editor of the preceding year. From the first issue of his Freshman days, from the very beginning of his career at Fordham, Mr. Robert J. McCarron, '29, gave his services in the columns of the Ram. Rob served on the news staff in his Freshman days, and in Sophomore rose to take the Editorship of that department. Now with his arrival as a full fledged Senior, Bob was entrusted with the chair of the Editor-in-Chief, the work of his three preceding years being at once consummated. At the same time with Mr. McCarron's elevation, Cas Adams, in his official capacity as Sports Editor, began more than adequately to write the traditional columns of that position. Looking Them Over." One man of '29 who commands high esteem for his unparalleled wit, is the genial Ed Coan. The instigator of "Ramblings" never once failed to have an entirely new line for his readers when those gentlemen opened their copies of the Ram on Thursday morning. Harold MeAuley, another member of '29, saw two years’ service on the Ram and finished with his merited Portfolio" column. Earl Evans of '29, served in the capacity of Circulation Manager and associated himself with that department since his early Frosh days. Ed Whalen, forsaking business for the pen, gave up the post of Business Manager which he had held in Junior to join the news staff in his final year. Joe Eccelsine bore the brunt of a laborious post as Layout Editor in his Senior year. In the Sports Department, Artie Crozier and Bob Purcell, both of 29, proved in valuable assets to their Editor. On almost any occasion. Art might be found in the Ram office checking scores and compiling surveys of cvcnrs in sportsdom in which Fordham played a part. Bob could be found going through dusty volumes to bring to light events long since dead in traditions about to be revived, a task demanding no end of pains. Space, unfortunately, forbids a roll call of the members of each class which served on the Ram. Suffice it to say, that in the year 1928-29, with nine members embodied as part of its being, the Class of '29 is justly proud to record the work of this excellent collegiate organ during the days of our Senior year. 359The Quill Club James Altieri, '29 Bernard J. Lane, '29 Edward P. Wiielan. '29 President Vice- Pres dent Secretary This organization was ushered into the company of University activities without fanfare of trumpets, or parade of ceremony, tn the Fall of 1925, under the name of the Freshman Writer's Cluh. As the car passed and the Freshmen became wise in the ways of the world and of their College, the cluh grew in size and in importance. Through the arduous years of Sophomore and Junior, the Club progressed under the guardianship of Father TaafTe, and the quality of the club's product improved apace. Stories were read and discussed, and now in Senior, the original members of the club rake the organization as a parr of their life, and its bi-wcckly sessions as pleasant interludes in the struggle for existence. New members have joined the ranks of the faithful ones, and as we leave the club and all its memories of past effort and achievement, we extend to those who will carry on its traditions our best wishes for its continued success. 540Council of Debate John K.

Historian 341HALLOWED m the mantle of its three-quarters of a century span arc the ancient walls of the Council of Debate. At the beginning of the scholastic year of 1928-29, the society celebrated its seventy-fifth anniversary as one of the most active and popular activities on the campus. The present year witnessed a change in Moderators when Father Walsh took over the reigns of directorship from Father Taaffe. For almost a decade the retiring Moderator had served most strenuously and efficiently. To him, in no small part, must be attributed the phenomenal rise and growth of the Council; and for his wise leadership, testimony is borne by the impressive list of intercollegiate victories which have dotted the Council’s history. The fact that the retiring Moderator has been succeeded by so able a man is most fortunate for the Council. 1'hc initial meeting of the year was held on the last Monday in October. With this meeting, the regime of the new officers began. The officers are as follows: President, Mr. John K Carroll; Vice-President, Mr. James J. McCarthy, Jr.; Secretary, Mr. Daniel Murphy; Treasurer, Mr. Howard A. Seitz, Censor, Mr. Jerome Maher, Historian, Mr. Donald F. Connors. As on the previous year, it was found that the membership had increased beyond the quota specified in the Constitution, so that it was necessary to pass a special amendment to accommodate the candidates. Again a new record was created in rhe field of intercollegiate activity. While the previous season had by far surpassed any earlier one in boasting of twelve intercollegiate debates, this year the Contest Committee has arranged a wider and more interesting program than has ever before been attempted. The debating season opened with the Varsity team journeying co the L'nivcrsit of Buffalo and Boston College. The Council was represented by Harold J. McAuley, '29, William R. White. '30, and John K ( arroll, '29. who spoke in that order. The University of Buffalo was met on the evening of December 14th and the Council team, speaking in defense of the Baumes Laws, was returned the victor by the unanimous decision of the |udgcs. On the following Sunday evening, the Varsity met and defeated the most formidable opponent it has engaged for some time, Boston College, the team in qucscion having been undefeated in intercollegiate competition for more than four years. With an enthusiastic audience which taxed the capacity of the lower Building the same ream, again speaking in defense of the Baumes Laws, received the palm of victory. The third team to be met and summarily defeated was that representing St. Joseph's College of Philadelphia. A Fordham team consisting of William R. White, ’30, William F. McAulille, 30. and John K. Carroll, 29. this time opposing the Baumes Laws, gained the decision of the judges over the visitors. A large and appreciative audience testified to the increased interest in debating on the campus. Rutgers Universm was next met in the first dual debate of the season, on the evening of February 21st. The question discussed was the Principal of Freedom of Speech and of the Press. The affirmative team of Messrs. Henry J. Kennedy, '30, Jerome Maher, ’29. and D. Collins Rooney, ’29. suffered defeat at the hands of the Rutgers team; while Fordham’s representatives at New Brunswick, Messrs. Henry King, '29, Thomas A. Collins. ’29. and William J. O’Neill, 30. gained a unanimous decision in defending the proposition The Council's winning ways were again attested to on the evening of February 23th. when the noted Marquette Universitv Law School team was met and defeated by a Council team, consisting of Messrs. James J. McCarthy, Jr , '29. Andrew F Quinn, '30, and Edward J. McNally, 29, speaking in that order Marquette L'm- 342vcrsitv sponsors a school of Public Speaking, in which over twelve hundred students are enrolled, and from which the debating teams arc chosen. Such a victory was more than gratifying to all interested in Fordham. The Abolition of the Jury System was the next object of the Council’s attacks. A team from Loyola University earned a close decision over one of our teams consisting of Messrs. Thomas J. Sheridan, ‘30, Andrew 1- Quinn, '30. and John K. Carroll, ’29. Messrs. James J. McCarthy, ‘29, Andrew F. Quinn, ‘30, and Edward J. McNally, ’29, successful!v invaded the North bringing home a unanimous decision against Canisius College A second Canisius team lost at Fordham to a team consisting of Messrs. Harold MeAuiev, ’29, William O’Neil, '30, and Edward J. McNally, '29. Contests with Boston College, New York University and Holy Cross will complete the Council’s schedule. On the evening of April 21st, the seventy-fifth anniversary of the founding of the society will be celebrated. An intercollegiate debate with Boston College is scheduled for the afternoon, to allow old members who have gathered for the occasion to sample the wares of the present regime. Past Presidents and many other Council Debaters who have since become famous outside the precincts of Fordham will lend rheir august presence to the festive board. The Council will suffer severely this year through graduation when it will lose a number of prominent speakers on the Varsity teams, but there arc many other promising members ready to fill the vacated positions and to keep the banner of this proud old society waving high. 343The Mimes and Mummers Richard I.

President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Stage Manager Members of the Board of Directors 344 ModeratorTHF. best biographies arc written, not in words, but in accomplishments. How easily then, does the task of chronicling the work of the Mimes and Mummers fall upon us! How happy would we be to tell the complete colorful story of the Mimes! but lack of space forces us to relate only those achievements, in the realization of which, men of '29 played an active part. "Pals First"' was the selection for the annual Varsity Play of 1925, when our budding playwrights and Thespians were but timid Freshmen. Richard I. Nevin won a signal honor for "29 by capturing the female lead in the play. In addition, a few of our gallant hearts seized upon the insignificant, but whom essential minor roles, lending still more color to our proud escutcheons. "Pals First" was cleverly enacted and we sat hack, much impressed at the handiwork of the Mimes and its Moderator of the time, Mr. Edward Bunn, S.J. In the Varsits One-Act Plays of 1926, Mr. Nevin again scored a noteworthy triumph, by winning the second prize for acting. His smart rendition of a female role in "Words and Music" by George Leonard, ’27, was the second distinction he had brought to his Class. Once again, our less skillful board-trodders performed modestly in rhe smaller parts. The Spring of 1926 saw the presentation of the Freshmen's own One-Act Play Contest. All plays were acted and directed by the members of "29, exclusively. Vincent Sheehan wrote "Aristide in Mufti"; "The Were Wolf" was contributed by-Thomas Ormsby; Francis Dalv presented "Eleven O'Clock." The virile "Guts' was penned by Walter Hopkins; and Richard I. Nevin offered "The Interview." James McGuire won first prize for acting in "Guts," the second prize-winning play. Richard I. Nevin earned both the first author’s and second actor's awards. Frank Cronin, John K Carroll, Lawrence Brock, Thomas Flattery, Arthur Crozier, and D Collins Rooney acted in the contest as did several of the authors. June saw Mr. Brunn. S.J., surrender his position as Moderator of the Mimes and Mummers. He was called to Woodstock to begin his theological studies and his place was filled by Mr. Glen E. Walsh, S.J. The new Moderator assumed his post with great enthusiasm and his ardor augured well for the success of future enterprises. The Mimes chose the famed "Beau Brummel" from the pen of Clyde Fitch, for Varsity play production in the early parr of December, 1926. Edward Clement won the part of Miss Marianna Vincent, the female lead; John K. Carroll played Mr. Abraham, a merchant, and D. Collins Rooney occupied one of the lesser roles. The Varsity One-Act Play Contest of 1927 drew two entries from the Class of ‘29. Donald J. Rvan wrote "The Broken Drum which featured Harold J. McAulcv, Andrew Lilliedahl, and Edward Clement, while "Pharisees." the second prize winner, was the offspring of Richard I. Nevin. Frank Cronin acted in the winning play, "Vox Populi,’ by George Leonard, "27, and James McGuire and John Brandon assisted in other plays. John K. Carroll, Harold J. McAuley and D. Collins Rooney represented "29 in "Richelieu," the drama of Bulwcr Lytton, the Varsity play of 1927. All had major roles and performed commcndably. Messrs. King, 30, Hollcnbach, ’30, and O'Donohue, ’31, also played important parts with distinction. In the One-Act Play Contest which followed in March, 1928, Donald J. Ryan was again represented by "A Man’s Heart ”, Edward Coan made his debut with "Cape of Good Hope," and Donald Connors bowed upon the scene with "OI‘ Womanish." The last, and prize-winning, contribution from '29 was Release, a blank verse creation of John 1C. Carroll who 345was also judged the best actor of the evening for his work in his own play. Messrs. Rooney, McAuley. Flattery, McGuire. McCarron. Brandon, Rvan, and Joseph S. Murphy appeared in various roles in tile contest. For the second time, we saw a devoted and inspiring Moderator leave us when Mr. Walsh, S.J. also left us for Woodstock. But fortunately we found in Mr. William Kelly, S.J . a willing and agreeable successor, and the Mimes soon struck us stride again. Mr. Kelly was assisted by Mr. John Taylor Breen, A.B., Dramatic Coach, and Mr. J Gerard Cregan. .B,. srar of Richelieu " The latter assumed the directorship o! the Plavshop. In the (all ol 1928. the Mimes and Mummers decided to play host to the Bard of Avon, and "Othello’’ went into rehearsal. A Freshman, Horace McNally, won rhe title role, and D Collins Roonev, as lid ward Clement as DeuUmona, Harold J. McAuley as Rr tbjnt:o% Richard I. Kevin as Evulia, Edward McNally as Montana, and Lawrence Brock, as Grutiano all members of the Class of 29, supported him. Donald J. Ryan's third one-act play, "The Rhythm of rhe City," won lust prize in the last dramatic effort in which the ’29 was represented, the contest of March, 1929, Barnard Lane. 30. won his second, consecutive runner-up award with "Ave 346Non Vale." The laurels lor acting went 10 Harold J. McAuley who appeared in "Sea Madness” by Francis Dohn, '30, and in "Carolina and the Good Book,” a play of his own making. William R. White, Jr., '30, took second honors for acting with his efforts in Ryan’s prize winner. Edward F. Corliss' “The Missing Link" was the third offering from a member of '29, and furnished the comic clement for the evening. Messrs. Higgins, Moriarity, Fitzgerald, Hopkins, and Quinn, also of ‘29, did well in their respective roles. Behind scenes, ’29 was well represented by Edward Whalen, Property Manager, and Joseph Murphy and James Higgins of the Stage Crew. Before we close, there is other work ro be done. To I loracc McNally, 32, Vincent Carlin, '31. William O'Donnell, '31. Philip Hollenbach, '30, Andrew Quinn. '30. James Cascv, '30, William R White, Jr., 30, John King, 30, Bernard Mckcrnan, ’30, all actors among the undergraduates, the Class of '29 extends its heartiest congratulations on their past achievements and best wishes for their future endeavors. To Bernard J. Lane, Stage Manager, and Claude Schwob, 30, Electrician, and their assistants, the same good wishes are given, as they are likewise ro all the undergraduate officers of the Mimes. Our final words could be no better ones than those of thanks to Mr. William J. Kelly, S.J., our Moderator, to Mr. J Gerard Crcgan and Mr. John Taylor Breen, for the many fine efforts thev have made for our progress and advancement in the dramatic field. 347The Press Club W. Caswell Adams, '29 President Frank A. Sullivan, '29 Vice-President Robert J. McCarron, '29 Secretary ONF. of rhc smallest of the college organizations in point of membership, the Press Club has achieved wonders in the held of journalism and has rendered Fordham an inestimable service in furthering Maroon publicity through the medium of the New York and Brooklvn daily newspapers. Of the eight writers composing the organization, three are Seniors and veteran members of rhc Maroon’s news organ. The Herald Tribune has an able correspondent in "Cas" Adams, President of the Press Club and Sports Editor of the Raw. "Bob" McCarron's facile pen supplies the New York Evening Telegram and the Sun with interesting accounts of Fordham sports. "Frank" Sullivan has brought the sporting public of distant Brooklyn and Long Island into closer contact with events at Ford-ham bv his energetic work on the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. 348The Glee Club Dr. Frederic Joslyn Fr.

Misack, 30 James Lawless, '30 John Kelly. '30 Chairman 349It is most gratifying to the Glee Club members of the Class of 29 to rellcct upon their four years of service and to realize that the trend of that organization has been one of gradual development, with the season of 1928-29 marking its most uniform success. For it can be said in all justice that at no period since its inception have the adherents and well wishers of the Glee Club possessed greater cause for satisfaction than that which they now enjoy at the close of the current season. As a body, the members of the club arc to be congratulated for the honors which they have reaped. As individuals, all striving for a common goal, thev arc to be praised for rheir achievements. However, there are some to whom particular mention is due. Special praise and thanks arc owed, above all, to the Rev Theodore T. Farley, S.J.. who. at the beginning of the vear, succeeded the Rev. Charles J. Foley, S.J., as Moderator of the Glee Club, and to Dr. Frederic Joslvn. Musical Director of the club. Fr. Farley, by his efficient guidance and unfailing amiabilit , has effected a spirit of friendlv co-operation in the club that has moved its members time and time again to be generous of their hours and prodigal of their efforts. Dr. Joslvn has seemed to inspire thc"fellows" with an aesthetic sense, and to engender in them an understanding and appreciation of the beautiful in music that have contributed in large measure to the artisric effects which they have so consistently attained. The members of the Board of Directors, and Mr. George L. O'Grady, its Chairman, arc to be commended for their unfailing activity in arranging the concert schedule and for the competent manner in which thev have disposed of all the club's business. The season of 1928-29 was inaugurated by the singing of the Mass of tbt Holy Ghost in the College gymnasium, with the entire student body in attendance. Despite the fact that the club had been in rehearsal for little more than two weeks, the rendition of Branchina's Mass was worthy of great approbation. On November 27, 1928, the club tendered a concert in Collins' Auditorium under the auspices of the St. Vincent dc Paul Societv This concert with its pleasing choral singing was a marked success. An innovation which immediately assumed the strength of precedent featured the evening's affair. This was the choosing of the soloist for the evening from the body of the club Mr. Richard I. Nevin. '29, tenor, and Mr. Philip H. Hollcnbach, '30. baritone, were the men thus honored. They were received with enthusiasm by the audience and their singing proved so popular that, rogerher with Mr. John Kcllv, 3F these gentlemen appeared as soloists at all subsequent concerts. The next appearance of the club was in New Rochelle, where a concert was given under the patronage of the Catholic Woman's Club of Westchester. During the Christmas recess, the members |ourncycd to Troy, N Y , where they delighted a large audience with their offering of concert numbers and Christmas carols. Engagements at St. Elizabeth's College, Madison. N. Y.. at New Rochelle College, at the Church of the Holy Cross, Harrison, N. J., and at Good Counsel College in White Plains, followed in order. A group was chosen, as usual to represent Fordham in the Inter- 350collegiate Glee Club contest, held in Carnegie Hall on the night of March 9th. And —if the applause of the audience and the opinions of dependable critics are worth consideration, the Fordham University Glee Club, as in former years, proved itself deserving of ranking with the best. The climax of the season was reached, however, in the annual concert at Town Hall. The management of this concert was entirely in the hands of the members of the club, and the unprecedented attendance, not to mention the sincere acclamation with which each number was greeted, is sufficient proof of the adequacy and fruitfulness of their efforts. The committee which so ablv handled this concert was composed of Mr. Richard I. Nevin, '29, General Chairman, Mr. William F. MeAloon, '29, Chairman of Ticket Committee, Mr Lester Atwell, '29, Chairman of Program. Committee, Mr. Harold J. McAuley, 29, Chairman of Publicity Committee, Mr. Philip Hollenbach, '30, Chairman of Patronage Committee, and Mr. Charles Missack, '30, Chairman of Correspondence Committee. So much for the year's successes. These words, though appreciative, cannot hope to catch and portray the spirit which has vitalized the Glee Club. The Class of '29 moves on, the curtain descends, a dim whisper of harmony rises and falls and the Class of '30 assumes the melody. 351ORCHESTRA BAND 352 Athletic ,Athletic Association James E.

With several stars robbed from him at critical times and with only two letter men not replaced by players entirely new to Varsity competition, the performance of our gridders is nor unworthy of praise. For dm am, 27, St. Bonaventurb, 0—The Ford ham eleven o|x ncd us 1928 campaign with an impressive 27-0 victory over the St. Bonaventure team at Fordham Field. In the Maroon's opening lineup there were seven Sophomores ready to receive their baptism of Varsity lire, and during the third period, Fordham was represented on the gridiron by an all-Sophomorc team. The Varsity tallied twenty points in the first period, the remaining counters being pushed across during the last quarter. Fordham, 20, George Washington, 0—The Maroon avenged the 13-0 defeat of 1927 at the hands of the Colonials, by rolling up 20 points to their erstwhile conquerors' 0, in Fordham's second straight victory at Fordham Field. Smashing attacks at the Southerners'forward wall by Cullen, Picculcwicz and Baut battered the Colonial line to a pulp and were responsible for two of the Maroon scores. The third touchdown was made when Wisniewski snared one of Dal Imre's passes to register. 334Fordham, 7; New York University, 34 "The Violet was strong and Strong was violent." That lust about summarizes the ninth annual grid classic between the Maroon and New York University staged at the Polo Grounds before a record crowd of 55,000. Fordham scored only once and that was in the first quarter when the Varsity's passing attack bewildered the shrinking Violets' and accounted for the long gains that came to a climax with rhe Maroon's lone touchdown. "Larrv” Dallairc and "Johnny" Gripp completed pass after pass in that first hectic period, while "Al" Politis and Pistol Pete” Wisniewski did most of the receiving. It remained for the "Plow Picculcwicz to rip through the N. Y. L line for a score to make the Fordham stands a mass of cheering, frenzied fans. With the insertion of one Beryl Follet in place of Roberts, the veteran Violet machine began to hit its stride and despite the Maroon s best efforts, the Cavanaugh men were unable to check the irresistible Meehan arrack. Fordham, 19; Holy Cross, 13 The Fordham eleven invaded the Crusaders at Fitten Field and defeated the Purple team by a 19-13 score in one of the hardest grid battles ever fought between these two ancient rivals. A powerful line, with not a "give" in it from one wing to the other coupled with an effective overhead attack, spelled victory for Fordham. The Maroon did not get started until well in the second period, when "Charlie" Picculcwicz knifed his way through left guard to score. The touchdown gave the Maroon added confidence and a second score was registered when Dallairc crossed the Purple goal-line on a pass from McMahon. A "trick" lateral, with McMahon carrying the pigskin accounted for the third touchdown. 355Kelly, in place of "Blondy" Ryan succeeded in crossing Fordham's goal-line aid almost immediately after, the Crusaders had the ball on Fordham's 3-yard strips, after Mahancy had blocked Tracey’s punt. A reverse play accounted for the second Purple score. Fordiiam, 34; Washington’ and Jefferson. 0—Inspired by their victory over Holv Cross, the Varsity rolled up the largest score of the season against the W. and J. eleven before a small crowd at the Polo Grounds. The absence of "Jap” Douds, All American tackle in 1927, weakened the visitors' line, while the Maroon s withering aerial attack, in which "Larry" Dallairc, "Hugh" McMahon and "Al" Poliris starred, demolished the Presidents' morale. The game is memorable because of the lirsr two touchdowns scored in the lirsr two minutes of play. Fordiiam, 0; University or West Virginia, IS — Probably the most disappointing game of the season was the 18-0 defeat at the hands of the West Virginia eleven. While the Maroon’s passing attack was excellent, it received no support 356from the "running offensive" and even the valiant efforts of Tracey, "Peek," Stano and Bcloin were futile against the onslaughts of the Mountaineers. Fordham, 7; Boston- College, 19—Fordham traveled to Boston after the West Virginia game only to meet defeat at Fenway Park by a 19-7 score The Maroon's lone score was tallied early in the second period, when "Al" Cullen went over Boston’s goal-line on a lateral pass from "Larrv" Dallaire. Boston College tallied three touchdowns: one by straight football tactics; one by means of a long run after an intercepted pass; and the final score, as a result of a blocked kick behind Fordham s goal-line. The inimitable "Al" Weston and his running-mate, "Joe" Creedon were the outstanding stars for Boston, while "Tubby" Beloin and the fiery Tom" Siano shone for Fordham. Fordham, 0; University of Detroit, 19—Led by Lloyd Brazil and "Cowboy” Connell of All-American caliber, the Detroit eleven in a deadly passing attack met and defeated the Maroon. Again Siano and Bcloin played brilliant football for Fordham until thev were 357both forced out after the half. Connell scored all three touchdowns for the visitors. Fordhani. 7; Gforgftown . 27—In rhe annual Georgetown grid classic at the Polo Grounds the Maroon displayed the best brand of football they had shown all season and the apparent supcrioritv of the visitors was due mainly to Fordham misplavs and poor handling of the pigskin by Maroon backs at critical moments. Fordhum's running attack outclassed that of the Hilltoppcrs as the recapitulation shows. The Maroon gained 159 yards by rushing as compared with Georgetown's 67 yards. It was only by the overhead game that “Lou" Little's men could gain any appreciable ground against the Cavanaugh machine. The game was featured by some remarkable punting. Walter Traccv of Fordham and "Jim" Mooney of Georgetown both gerring off kicks, some of which traveled 70 yards on the fly. The Southerners started the game with a rush and reached the Fordham goal line in the first two minutes of play. Things looked gloomy for the Maroon in the first period, bur with the injection of "Frank" Barros in place of Dallairc in the second quarter, the Fordham team took a new lease on life. The running attack that had failed miserably all season worked to perfection. The Maroon advance started about midfield and ended only when Shablcski tore off eighteen yards around right end to score the first touchdown against the Blue and Gpay since 1924. Georgetown scored twice in the last half, once when Leary picked up a loose ball and ran thirty yards to a touchdown, and again when the same I.carv snared one of Scalzi's long passes to score the Hilltoppcrs' final points. 353Freshman Football Valentine A. Meehan Manager Joseph A. Kozlowski Coach Tut Fordham Freshman football eleven played one game last lull, but in this lone encounter the first-year team showed the power which is expected to make all Fordham followers happy in the coming season as the star ends, backs and linemen run through the opposing teams. St.John's of Danvers, Massachusetts, was the lone opponent for Joe Kozlovvski’s charges. In the game won by the Maroon, 12-7, the cubs showed to advantage, although opposed by one of the strongest of the New England elevens. In the first period of play, the St John's team pushed over a touchdown and then the goal after touchdown was gained. At the start of the second half, however. Red Conway, the speedy Fordham halfback, made things brighter for the Bronx by racing forty lengthy yards for a score. With but a few minutes to go, late in the fourth period, Tip Tobin, the fleet Freshman wingman, snatched a long pass from Fisher out of the Fall atmosphere and raced across the white line for the winning score of the day. 559Basketball Francis J. Dougherty Captain James J. McCarthy Manager Edward Kelleher Coach Five of the greatest basketball players who ever stepped on a court gained for Fordham the Eastern Championship by winning eighteen games and losing but one. Captain Frank Dougherty, Bo Adams, Nick Landers, Dannv Reardon and Pop Swcctman turned the trick for Fordham in their fourth year as a team. These five played four vears for the Maroon starring in their firsr year and wound up their college careers with an imposing record of sixcy-thrcc victories in sixty-eight battles. Only Rutgers in Freshman, Manhattan and Catholic University in Sophomore, City College in Junior and New York University were able to beat the five. In their last twenty-five games, the great quintet won twenty-three straight and then lost only to come back against Manhattan and win easily in the last game of their career. Hailed as one of the greatest College lives ever assembled, the team swepr everything before it anil brought the laurel wreath to its College, its staff, us Class, and 360its great Coach, Ed Kcllchcr. Mental pictures of these swift, stalwart figures weaving in and out with their machinelike precision will always remain with us; no team of the future can displace from our memories the seasons when Dougherty, Reardon, Adams, Sweetman and Landers played for Fordham. They were a great five of whom wc arc justly proud. Fordham, 29; St. Francis, 16- -With Nick Landers out of the lineup, the veteran Fordham basketball five started the season auspiciously with an easy victory. Captain Dougherty and "Bo" Adams scored consistently. Fordham, 30; Ai.umni, 20—When the old stars and newer satellites met, rhe 1929 aggregation came off victorious. Color abounded at the game with a galaxy of first-rate performers giving battle in a close game. "Pop" Sweetman led the Varsity attack. Fordham, 28; Gettysburg, 19—Gathering momentum, the Maroon quintet showed its wares to the anxious Pennsylvanians and won again in easy fashion. Landers played for awhile and the team worked well as a unit for the first time. Fordham, 46, Yale, 23—Once again rhe Blue of Yale was smothered as, after a slow start, the Fordham stars began to shine and made a runaway out of what was considered a good test for the fast-traveling Maroon. "Doc" and "Bo" outscored Yale between the two of them, such was the marksmanship. Fordham, 41; Princeton, 13 Fresh from the joys of the holidays Fordham started the New Year right by trouncing another Intercollegiate league team. The Orange and Black exhibited little power and was no match for the smooth working five of Fordham. Fordham, 23, Colgate, 23—Looking for revenge, the Colgate team came near securing it, but a belated rush gave the Maroon the sixth triumph in a row. Landers for Fordham and Hagy for the upstaters were the stars. Maroon met Maroon and the Bronx shade shaded the upstate hue. Fordham, 53. Bucknell, 30—A fine attacking team next faced "Doc” and his mates but Fordham players had a field day, and ran away from the visitors although, in truth, the five did not work well. Adams and Landers found the hoop with amazing frequency, Fordham, 37; Syracuse, 15 With a show of real power that has never been equalled by a Fordham ream, rhe quintet swept a fine Syracuse five off its fccr. The attack was perfect and with it working in such high grade order the defense mattered little. Once again Adams and Sweetman shared the honors with "Cap" Dougherty. Fordham, 27; St. Joseph's, 25—The hurried jaunt to Philadelphia did the Varsity little good and the Quakers almost defeated the Maroon. In fact, a missed foul shot with twenty seconds to go kept the Ram in the battle for an extra period, and Dougherty tossed rhe necessary points to insure the ninth triumph. Fordham, 34; Columbia, 18—Showing again that the team was well on its way-to at least Metropolitan honors, the Maroon crushed Columbia. The visitors held 361rhc fleet Ford ham men for a half but the deviltry could not he permanent and the Blue and White was pushed aside very effectively in the last part of the game. Fordham, 47; Tufts, IS Alter a two-week layoff, the Fordham quintet stacked up against the New Englanders. The Tufts team showed no power at all and rhc game was an easy triumph for valiants. Adams and Sweet man and Dougherty gave the Brown forwards a lot of work. Fordham, 43; Loyola. 30—The championship quintet of the Southern districts meant little to Fordham and on a trip away from the home bailiwick, the veterans again broke loose running the winning streak to an even dozen games Bo" Adams was "on" at Baltimore and no home guard could hold either him or "Doe” in check and so the laurels were given to Fordham. Adams scored twelve points and "Doc" eleven. Fordham, 47, Loyola, 20—The C. L' quintet was no match for Fordham and the Maroon more than made up for the more chan two-vear-old sting of defeat. No single Fordham star could be selected as all five made things black for the home team and romped away with the game in easy fashion. Fordham, 56; Baltimore, 18 The next team to try the nettle of the Fordham five met with disaster to a great extent. In no way was the visiting outfit on a par with rhc Maroon ' Nick" Landers gathered most of rhc larger sprigs of laurels, bur "Pop" Sweet man and the others were in hailing distance "N lek garnered seventeen markers during the evening. Fordham. 50; St. Thomas. 17 The fifteenth straight triumph of the season and the twenty-first consecutive victory were easily scored over the Scrantonians. The Fordham Varsity was at the peak of its playing form and the visitors were routed as Dougherry, Landers, Sweet man and Adams found rhc basket on long and short shots. Fordham, 50, C. C. N. Y., 19—A crowd that swelled the gvm’s walls saw Fordham seek revenge with a vengeance. The Maroon swept down the court, Sweetman and Landers in the lead, but "Doc" and "Dan" and "I3o" not far behind, and the Lavender boys were lost in the rush as a defeat suffered twenty-two games ago was reversed. Fordham. 24, Sr John's, 21 It remained for the St. John's game to be the most thrilling ever played at Fordham. The lead, never held by either team for more than two minutes changed hands fourteen times, while the score was tied no less than nine times. Dougherty won the game for Fordham in the last minute of play when after taking the ball away from the Vincentians who were protecting a one point advantage, he threw rhc old apple through the hoop for rhc seventeenth triumph of the winter and rhc twenty-third in a row for the veteran five. New York University, 32, Fordham, 15—It was a tired lot of Fordham basketeers who took the court against the Violet at the 102nd Engineers Armory and N. V. U., guarding well broke the Fordham string of victories and so spoiled the chances of an unbeaten season for the Maroon. Newblattc kept Adams from scoring and rhc mental 362strain of being unbeaten hitherto beat the Maroon team. 'Doe' and Nick Landers played well. Fordham, 33; Manhattan, 21—In the final game of the year, the Maroon defeated the Manhattan team. The beating was decisive and brought the Fordham season to a successful close. Playing their last game as a team, rhe Fordham five worked well together and scored when rhe circumstances demanded.

Indeed does Fordham’s basketball reputation look safe for several years to come Haves, Baker, Parker, Hurley. Szcskowski, Mulligan, Conroy, Donnelly and C omerford were the srars of the outfit Fordham, 30; Evander Childs. 7 In the first game of the year, the Maroon cubs showed their power bv swamping the rival quintet. Baker, Buckhout and Mulligan were the Freshman stars, Baker scoring eight field goals. 364Fordham, 46; Theodore Roosf.velt, 6—For the second rime in succession, rhe Freshmen checked rhe rival offense and kept the opposing total below ten points. Baker and Mulligan shared honors with fourteen and seventeen points, respectively. Fordham, 22; St. Peter's Pkef, 12—The Jerseyites put up a line battle against the Maroon cubs for the first half but were unable to cope with the concentrated attack of Mulligan, Hurley, Baker, Szeskowski and Parker. Fordham, 31; Seton Hall, 13—Mulligan and Szeskowski again shared the laurels as the Fordham cubs garnered their fourth straight victory. The Seton Hall quintet played hard but the team work of the home five was too much for the visitors. Fordham, 36; Regis High, 12—Hayes surprised the opponents from downtown and the former Regis star stole the sprigs of laurel with ten markers. The game was slow and marred by fouls to a great extent. Fordham, 33; Bronx Y. M. C. A., 4—The most crushing defeat of the season was administered to the Y. M. C. A. quintet. The visitors were unable to pierce the strong Maroon defense led by Parker, the Fordham back-court man. Fordham, 22; Textile High, 14—The Textile team played the Maroon the best game it had faced all season but the Maroon rirst year team was able to pull out its seventh successive triumph of the winter due to the line work of Mulligan. Fordham, 33; C. C. N. Y., 10 In their first clash with their great rivals to be, the Fordham team scored an impressive victory over the Lavender Frosh. The visitors were completely held in check as the Fordham star sharpshooters, led by Hayes and Baker and Mulligan scored at will. Fordham, 23; St. John's, 8—In the preliminary game to the great Varsity battle, the Fordham Freshmen showed the spirit of the evening by playing its best game of the year and completely overshadowing any work of the Vincentian first-vear aggregation. Fordham, 30; N. Y. U., 18—The Violet Freshmen were not of the same caliber as their elders and the Maroon cubs had no trouble in chalking up their tenth victory of the year through the splendid work of the entire team. Fordham, 24; Manhattan, 18 Finishing the season with the eleventh of an unbroken string of victories, the Fordham cubs met and decisively defeated their strongest rivals. The Manhattan team was strong, but the fine play of Baker, Hayes, et al, settled the issue beyond rhe shadow of a doubt 365T rack Captain Manager Coach John Brbnnan, '29 Joseph Lane, '29 Jakf. Weber The first week in December brought the familiar smell of rubbing liniment back to Jake Weber's training quarters. Once again the Maroon flyers rounded the gymnasium floor in daily practice, later to nurse loints and muscles paining from the drudgery of the workouts. As usual, the veteran Olympic trainer shook his head gloomily to all questions concerning the future. For weeks, however, he counseled daily with Captain John Brennan and Manager Joe Lane, and it was no surprise to all opponents early in January at the Columbus Council Games. This same team, composed of O'Shea. Brennan. Hurley and Simons continued to tack victories on the Maroon masthead throughout the whole season. The quartet reached its height at the Mcadowbrook Games in Philadelphia, when after only two days' rest from a hard race at the Mill-rose Games, it won a championship by defeating Penn., Colbv and Georgetown. The middle distance runners also performed well and the two-mile relay with Rilev, Zlonzicwski, Denzer and Connors ran several good races Jams broke the world’s record for the 80 yard hurdle event at the American Legion games. 366Cross-Country John Brennan, '29 Captain Edward Durner, '29 Manager Jake Weber ..... . .. Coach after diligent training over the six-mile course, Captain John Brennan and his 21. mates were ready for the opening meet of the season. By some mistake, the meet with New York University was cancelled and Manager Ed Durner took his charges to Van Cortlandt to run in the initial meet of the Fall. The Green won by the margin of a single point. The team along with Brennan was composed of Paul Riley, Johnny Collins, Joe Stygar, and Don Connors, all veteran campaigners. Jim Anderson and Dick Herman alternated in Durante's old place. Early November found the Maroon making another bid for Metropolitan honors when they routed the runners from City College in a thrilling race over the hills and flats of Van Cortlandt. A few days later several of the Fordham ream members finished well up in the Junior "Mets," Johnny Brennan raking ninth place. Other men on the squad who saw action in the meets were Winters, Casey, George Collins and Bill Rodier. 367Swimming John Lyttle Arthur Crozh.r Michael McDonough Cap Li in Manager Coach The season ot 192S-29 witnessed the greatest swimming team ever to represent Ford ham in the tank. Throughout the entire schedule, the Maroon natators were never defeated and they succeeded in annexing the Metropolitan championship from their bitter City rivals by soundly trouncing City College, Columbia and New York University. In addition, Fordham also triumphed over the Lafayette University mermen, which team had defeated the Varsity last year. All of these victories were marked by convincing scores which clearly showed the superiority of the Ram watermen With Captain Johnny Lyttle, Neil Weed and Eddy Hughes as a nucleus. Coach McDonough ordered early practice for all Varsity candidates. With only these men remaining, the outlook for a successful season was not of the brightest. The men. mhowever, discounted this fact and began to reach a form that was tar superior to that of previous years. By the middle of October, the squad included the members of last season's Freshman team that had gone through its schedule undefeated. Notable among these were Dick Winters, Frank Dolan, August Harms and FredSchccl. Hal Hoffman and Henry Burkan were two other brilliants who aided immeasurably in the formation of a formidable aggregation. City College was the first team to be turned back by the Varsity at the College natatorium by the score of 43 to 19. The visitors had journeyed to Old Rose Hill with a fine record bur despite this fact, rhev were utterly helpless before the powerful Fordham outfit. The Maroon mermen captured six of the seven firsr place events with Hal Hoffman as a double winner. It was this contest that fully revealed the prowess and strength of the hitherto untried swimmers. In victory, Fordham showed a well-balanced outfit which simply overwhelmed the visiting aggregation. Practically every event was won with comparative ease, the victors’ chief opposition being furnished by one of their own teammates. Columbia was the next victim of the stellar swimming of the Maroon mermen. This victory marked rhe second consecutive triumph of the Ram over the Lion. The contest was held at the Morningsidc Heights Pool and when the final returns were tabulated they showed our men as victors by the score of 37 to 23- In the free style events, Fordham reigned supreme capturing first and second in all but the fifty-yard dash. The back stroke and the breast stroke were captured by the Lion but the winners were forced to return record times. The result of this meet was a distinct surprise to the Blue and White for they had entertained fond expectations of wreaking revenge upon the Ram watermen. Easton, Pennsylvania, was the next to receive a severe jolt when the nut a tors of Lafayette University made the arduous journey to the Fordham natatorium to return home saddened by a 44 to 18 swamping. The Maroon mermen more than redeemed themselves for the setback which they received the previous year by capturing six of the seven places. August Harms was a double winner for the home team, capturing the 440-yard free style and the 200-vard breast stroke from the Eastonians. To Captain Johnnv Lvttle fell the honor of setting the first pool record for the fifty-yard dash He returned the fast time of 25 seconds, flat. Artie Crozier, a letterman for three years, was selected as Manager, and throughout the long season he acted as guiding genius of the swimmers' destinies. With all the members of the championship team returning next year, the outlook is particularly bright and it seems very likely that the 1929-30 will at least equal if not surpass the brilliant work of the 1928-29 team. 369Baseball Wi1.1.1 am F. Feaster .... Captain George L. Duggan............................. ... Manager John F. Coffey .................... ... Coach This, in brief, is the story, as we have gathered it, of the melodrama portraved by Fordhara’s 1928 diamond stars. As the curtain went up we saw a run scored in the lirst inning against Yillanova, another brace of counters in the fourth, and a defeat of last season was wiped out. "Bob" Cooney allowed only three singles, winning, 3-1 Johnny Hensil, who shut us our lasr year, anil who won cvcrv other srarr this season, was the victim. "Johnnx Murphy barely missed a perfect game when lie defeated Vermont. 8-1. Howard, left fielder, made the only hit against him, a double in the fifth. The scene shifted and the first game of the Southern trip, against Georgetown, was cancelled. Catholic U. started a three-run uprising in the first inning of their game, bur the Maroon barters pulled the contest our of rhe fire with 17 hits, winning 20-5 "Babe” Egan and "Bill" Loehwing led the attack with three hits apiece, while "Eddie" Ryan homered. At Annapolis, the Maroon matched the Midshipmen run for run until the eighth inning. Fordham, however, made four tallies and the Navy team was sunk, 9-5-"Yin" Clancy imitated Hannegans home run bur "Babe" F.gan s triple was unmarched. 370The stage began to darken and Fordhain was next seen m the midst of a drizzling storm with Boston College. The game ended in a 1-1 tie when "Vin" Clancy "swam” home in the fifth. The following day, "Tom" McElrov, of Providence, who used to play with our boys, changed his role, and for three innings held us at bay while his new marcs were compiling a 14-8 win. "Jack" LaBornc had a big day at the bat with three hits, one a home run Providence was our hir and onrrun but won its seventh victory in a row. After rhe scene at Rhode Island, the players studied their parts, took the cue of being out hit and still defeated Yale, 4-2. The Yale audience was wild bur nor nearly as wild as John Hobcn, or Brewster Loud, whose tosses permitted "Bill" Lochwing and "Jack" LaBornc to win for the Maroon in the tenth. The Catholic U. game was postponed bv rain and the following day the Maroon was handed its second setback of the season, 5-3. The two Metropolitan rivals, N. Y. U. and Fordham clashed a Ohio Field and the five runs scored by the Violet in the second inning were too much for our team to overcome. George Manfredi twirled a masterful game for the victors. At New Brunswick, DeMucchio of Rutgers, lust toyed with the Ram batters and then let them hit him back. He struck out no less than 12 men, but Fordham collected the goodly margin of 11 safeties and finally won, 4-2. The Maroon literally stole the game from the Scarlet, rallying two runs on a pass and five stolen bases. 371In the next scene at Worcester, the Ford ham ''jinx'' broke the Crusaders string of eight consecutive victories, broke "AI" Fons' great pitching feat of 32 scoreless innings and handed the Milwaukee boy his first defeat of the season, 5-1 While the Maroon boxmen were holding the Purple spellbound, the attacking squad, led by "Dan” Reardon, ruined everything in the tenth inning. Reardon saved the game in the ninth and he tripled in the tenth to score the winning run. Rain again took its toll when Princeton’s contest was called. Reardon stole home in the tenth inning of the next game to beat Lafayette, conquerors of NJ. Y. U., 6-5- When the big right fielder reached the plate he said, "I don't remember doing it. but. Lafayette, 1 am here." In lact. the game was all Reardon, lie hir for a home run and three singles, scored three runs and made a trio of startling catches in the outfield. In a little specialty number, the N. Y . C. and Ford-ham did their bit for Uncle Sam's Olympic Fund, playing a benefit game which the Maroon captured, 4-1. "Babe" Lgan did a little starring when he connected for three safe hits. "Johnny" Murphy also enjoyed a splendid day at the bat. And then the last of the joyous scenes. The team enjoyed a 20-2 field day at the expense of City College. The fourth inning witnessed the appearance of three Lavender hurlers. the disappearance of two, and eight Maroon runs. But the Maroon actors then played rheir worst of the season and lost a very important contest to Holy Cross bv a 12-4 margin. This was the turning point of the drama. A few laughs and tears and the play was ended. The first laugh came when "Jack" Coffey saw his team win its first victory over a Colgate aggregation. 4-2. "Bob" Cooney yielded seven well scattered hits and drove in three runs for the Maroon "Jack" LaBornc starred in the field, accepting nine chances without a slip. It was "Dave" Coleman’s second double which gave our winning two run rally its impetus. r the Dartmouth game, the Maroon grasped hands with Lady Luck to win a 2-1 single hit victory. "Bob" Harris, Green ace, was the victim of his own wild pitch, permitting "Dan" Reardon to tie the score. "Bill" Porter then rode home on the next play, a passed ball, ro settle the issue. For the second time, the Boston College 372panic was rained out and then a gratifying moment tor the Maroon followers came when “Boh Cooney shut out N. V. U., 5-0 in six innings. “Babe'' Egan held the spotlight most of the day. He produced a one-run lead in the first frame and then tripled in the fifth with the bases full. "Babe's" bullet throw from deep left also prevented a Violet score The following scene brought gloom when Kcio University from Tokio, Japan, won a 12-inning game. 3-1-“Dave" Coleman's single, sending Egan home to tie the score in the ninth, was wasted when the Nipponese nine scored a pair of runs in the 12th. The visitors executed three snappy double plays. "Johnny” Murphy finished his year's work by limiting the heavy slugging Georgetown team to three hits, two of them of the scratch variety, and won, 9-0. “Jack" La-Borne saved the shut-out for "Johnny" on two occasions, playing a line defensive game, besides scoring three of the Maroon runs. And then, in the season's windup, an 11-inning, 3-2, defeat by Columbia finally gave way to a rainbow, remembering that Fordham had beaten the Blue and White last season in exactly the same way. Columbia won the Metropolitan title but the audience was satisfied that the players had put on their best performance and now look forward to next year's fine schedule. 373Tennis Frederick Meyer, 30 Captain Clarence Crysler, '29 Manager Tin year of 1928 witnessed the most successful season the Maroon has enjoxed on the tennis courts. The Fordlum netmen engaged in six matches and were victorious in all The culminating achievement of the year was the capturing of the Metropolitan championship. The teams defeated by the Ram racquet-wielders ranked among the best m rhe F.asc. namely. Havcrford, Lafayette, Columbia. Holy Cross. Rutgers and N. V. U. With the first call to practice there appeared on the courts a veteran aggregation practically intact from the year before, led bv Captain Gene McCauliffe. The outlook for rhe coming season was of the brightest and from the very start there was a bitter battle among the candidates for the honor to represent Fordham in this sport. From these aspirants were selected "Harry" King. 29, Rosenthal, Law, "29. "Tom" Donahue. '28. "Fred" Meyer, '30 and "Sid" Barritt, '29. 374An extensive Southern trip was planned for the start of the season, but old "Jupc Pluve” stepped in, and as a result six marches were cancelled. Thus the first team to be met by the Maroon was Haverford College at Haverford, which easily succumbed to the superior skill of the Ram racquctccrs bv the score of 5 matches to 2. Lafayette was the first team to make its appearance at Fordham and returned home saddened by a 4 to 2 defeat. This match revealed the capabilities of the Maroon, as the Eastonians bore the reputation of possessing a powerful net team. Columbia, the arch-enemy of Fordham in tennis circles, was the next opponent to appear at Old Rose Hill Manor, flic Lion nermen pur up a determined battle and captured rhrcc matches enabling them to tie the Maroon, since the deciding match was called on account of darkness, with Fordham leading. The Varsity accompanied the baseball team to Holy Cross and spurred the diamond men on to victory by blanking the Crusaders 7 to 0. With this conquest, the netmen hit their true stride. Rutgers and N. V. U. suffering defeat by the same score, neither winning a match. "Tom" Donahue and Julius Rosenthal led the team in individual scoring, winning all of their matches. Captain McC.auliffc followed by annexing five matches and losing only one Since Gene" played as number one man, this is indeed a very creditable record. "Harry" King, playing against stern opposition, came through the season with four victories and two losses; "Fred” Meyer after losing the first two matches ran up three straight triumphs. In the doubles, the combination of McCauJilfc and Donahue was the most successful, only one defeat being recorded against this duo. Rosenthal and King were undefeated, winning two matches. Meyer playing with Rosenthal was also undefeated, this team winning one match. Meyer and King had varied success, winning one, losing one and tying the other. Throughout the entire season, the Maroon was without the services of a coach, Captain "Gene" McCauliffc, one of the highest ranking Juniors in the Metropolitan district, acting in that capacity. As the season ended, "Harry" King and "Fred" Meyer, doubles partners and close friends for three years, found themselves tied for the club’s lead. "Harry" very courteously yielded to "Fred."

No more shall flights among the clouds delight us, a strict and narrow path is preordained. But before this awful operation takes place, it is our fond desire to rule once more, once more along the various channels which we have sighted in the last few years. It must of necessity be a short and hurried trip, a journey on which time must be used sparingly in revisiting favorite stopping places along the road; a tour in which sadness and joy are commingled without order, just as they were when first we rode the course. Give Pegasus the rein then, to roam where he will. Then should any favorite haunt or by-road be overlooked, any landmark passed too swiftly with scarcely a glance of recognition, any important milestone scorned by his living hooves, let the fault be his. Away then—the mental bowstring requires new elasticity and bids us loose the string, for just a while. We arc back in Freshman, that glorious period so famous in song. stor and moving picture. We hale at the gates, then pick our way carefully up the campus, vaguely afraid of Sophomore jurisdiction. A gay upperclassman passes and we marvel at h:s great aplomb. A lordly Senior relegates us to the realm of nothingness with a questioning look. But with quixotic courage we accept the challenge thrown to us and set our shoulders to the task of becoming men of Fordham. Swifrlv now rhe screen of memory unfolds and presents the Class of '29 in its infancy . There is a great hustle and confusion, a new anti large family has entered the premises. But swiftly out of the chaos there form leaders, counselors and future politicians. Order is achieved.

The Dean pronounces us the worst Class ever to enter the precincts, and tenders a bill lor various atrocities committed by rhe Class in general. Retreat masters call us the finest body of students ever assembled. The Dean loses prestige. The Freshman Dance is called off in retaliation. Mass meetings arc held, speeches arc made, a daisy-chain is proposed, a bazaar is suggested, even a June-walk is considered. Undaunted, the Dean remains firm. Report cards are handed out. Forger' on a large scale is immediately in order Whispered threats arc heard on all sides, uttered bv the less fortunate of the Class. Suspension for those who did not write in their parents' names on time and return the cards. Dice-games in the classroom rudely prohibited by the Prefect of discipline. Province exams, and a wholesale rush to secure trots. Much midnight oil and vague muttenngs. Success—the exams didn't count, anyway. 377And so on until June. Freshman year is too full of incidents to mention all of them. The ingenious excuses for being late to class, as originated by the Jerseyites and the Brooklynites would in themselves fill a book of humor. The cup of enjoyment is crowned with a meniscus of new friendship and the year of Baptism is over. Pegasus turns to new fields. Sophomore looms on the horizon. The year begins with a gigantic re-meeting. Handshakes and emphatic slaps on sunburned backs are prevalent. Marvelous tales of wonderful trips and great jobs are recounted. There never were so many beautiful girls ever encountered before during vacation time. Affections of the heart arc freely discussed. There arc new laces, too, faces of those who toiled through the summertime to catch up with our Class. Sophomore year readily rinds itself and stalks on its academic, pedantic way. We are inundated with the Classics. Rhetoric fills the air. We are becoming more serious-minded the pendulum of youth seems to be lessening its speed. But the Sophomore Dance acts as a stimulant. NJor that the Dance is the only stimulant, rather ir is an occasion for other stimulants. The Dean again pronounces us incorrigible. This time our Retreat master is inclined to agree with him. We must seek consolation from ourselves. Lists, report cards, warnings, threats—the whole cycle of Freshman repeated on a larger scale. It is a wearisome year. It seems like a period of probation. Everything is cut, dried and quartered. There is no relaxation nor rest. The memories arc nor so pleasant, the crowding scenes passing before us arc scenes of work, work, work. Pegasus himself grows weary. We had better leave this year buried as it is in the past. Away then, from this year of Ptnance. Junior! True upperclassmen at last! The ranks arc thinned. Some more of our number have gone—some to professional schools, some to work and some to the deuce. We are introduced into the esoteric circle of philosophy. Everyone immediately discovers within himself hitherto unnoticed manifestations of great argumentative ability. Slowly we grope along the paths blazed by the greatest minds of antiquity. Junior is full of life, full of the verve and spirit of youth.Class rings, Junior societies, the logic specimen and the Prom. What memorable incidents are crowded into this short period. We arc no longer students governed by rigid regimen. We have become scholars and the world of personal research and thought is opened to us. Armed with the syllogism and a few well-rounded Latin phrases, we hurl our challenge to the world. Even the specimen, that dark, mysterious ordeal patterned along the lines of the Inquisition, fails to daunt us. Why should it daunt us? Only the smartest ones in the class are questioned and in some strange, wonderful manner they solve the difficulties placed so cunningly before them and bring praise and commendation upon the class in general There is no stopping us now. Onward we rush to the Prom. 37SThe Prom. Crowds. Milling thousands. Expectant, joyful faces. Alluring glances from every female eye. The Dean seated at the door, a mute reminder. Favors. Beautiful bridge sets for the girls. Charming what arc thevs for the boys. More crowds, more alluring smiles. Distant strains of youthful music. Fight. Push. The dance floor at last. Around rhe giant treadmill once, then rest. Wild-cvcd friends searching for their feminine guests. Confusion jov—a touch of the barbaric. Dinner—a mad scramble. Cautious opening of perfectly apparent bottles. A drink for Fordham—a drink for college days—a drink for good fellowship—a drink to the ladies—a drink for, well. |ust a drink. Back to the dance. Drowsiness due to the speeding of the hours. An apathetic trudge around the dance floor. A bracer from the fast-emptying bottle. Another. Another. Drowsiness—oblivion. "All right, Pegasus, we’ll go. No doubt your aesthetic sense is rather shocked at this spectacle. Wc ourselves arc rather surprised at it now. But, just the same, it was fun while it lasted.” Away then. We have witnessed again the greatest social affair of our College days. r.ct ir resr in memory. The curtain falls upon anorher car rhe Junior year, bright with the lire of freedom and good will, our year of Confirmation. Senior! A truly magic word, marking the objective for which wc have striven so mightily. The answer to so many prayers sent heavenward. Wc have been through the mill, sorted and threshed with tribulations and now we arc ready for the refinement and the polish. How wc have grown. So short a while ago the babies of the school, wc arc now its leaders. Wc have a sneaking feeling that even the Dean recognizes us as not so bad after all. Wc arc united for our last year together Together we all breathe the same air whar rhcrc is of it) in the same large classroom at the same time. Opera glasses arc at a premium for those in the rear scats Famous mob scenes from the French Revolution are re-enacted every day as the boys reclaim their three hundred individual hats and coats from the fifty forbearing hooks on the wall. Speeches arc made and resolutions are passed. We are going to do something for Fordham before we leave its sacred portals. We will do something big, something never attempted before. The first term passes and wc enter the home stretch. Wc are still all together, faltering though some may be. Psychology was not so bad after all. And ethics— wcll,0w r tns tst bouutu,so that must be. too. The Pontifical Mass— wc make a splendid showing in our first concerted effort in caps and gowns. We arc really well satisfied with ourselves. Wc look forward to Graduation with added pleasure But Senior is too close ro us for us to reflect upon if Pegasus refuses to gallop into the future, hence wc cannot forsce the end of the trail. Wc await with patience the closing of this, our year of Grace. 379Bur perhaps you would prefer this version: CLASS HISTORY The Class of 1929 started in Freshman. After going through Freshman u went into Sophomore. After going through Sophomore it went into Junior. After going rhrough Junior it went into Senior. After going through Senior it kept on going and it hasn't got there yet. JUNIORS The Junior Class has never been the same before or since the Class of 1929 were Juniors, and we say this not to disparage the Junior Class but rather to praise them for so closely approaching the standard scr by us when we were Juniors. SOPHOMORES Annually, the Sophomores hold a dance. The Annual Sophomore Dance was not held this year. Hereafter, this dance will be called off annually because the Sophomores never dance at their Annual Dance even when it isn't called off. FRESHMEN Really, would you believe it. but we can think oi nothing to say about the Freshmen. Lots of people say all kinds of things about the Freshmen, we know, but we can't think of a single thing about them, hence we will treat them well by saying nothing about them The Things We Will Always Remember The hat avalanche in Senior . . . remember how the hats used to fall off the hooks by the hundreds in Senior classroom? And how those old hooks were piled up with coats and coats and coats, and hats and hats. The coats would be piled up four high on each hook, and then rhe liars would begin robe piled up. Then everything would begin to go along wonderfully well until the middle oi Father Murphy’s periodic psychological sentences when one of the derbies perched on the wall, taking advantage of the psychological moment, would plop down on the nearest man's head to his intense consternation and to the derby's extreme delight. John Moriarity in his neo-political moments we will never forget the fire in his eye, the crescendo of his gesture, the bologna of his line, and the fury of his delivery as John discussed A1 Smith, the Jersey Club dances, and the beauties of Jersey City The sleepy look on Tom Fitzgerald no matter how much he slept. Tom had that look in his eye that all the girls fall for or rather fall asleep for. In fact, that tired look in Tom's eyes was so contagious that it makes us sleepy to think of it What was it we were speaking of-’ O, that sleepy look . . On who was it again? . . . Ho Hum . . . Oh yes, Tom Fitzgerald . . . The night before the first psychology exam. How we pored over every little bit of psvchologv in our notes, and then the sweet suspense of the morning before, and the sad suspense of the morning after. 380The Class of T9 Learns the Secret of Success From a well-known Newspaper Publisher: Young man, if you want to he successful, get an AIRPLANE. What good will your psychology or ethics do you if you have no AIRPLANE when JAPAN swoops down with her HUNDREDS OF MILLION'S of flying machines. Education conquers many obstacles but not all. Education PLUS fast-scouting PLANES and armored CRUISERS will conquer everything from the ENGLISH and JAPANESE to HATE and SUPERSTITION. From a Professor in Senior: What do you mean by success. Mister? Is it a stable full of Packard roadsters? Is thar what von mean bv success? Let 11s look at the scholastic definition of success and if you feel vaguely dissatisfied with it. sit down (for five or ten years) and try to think up a real objection to ir. In that way you will come to knowledge to its inherent value. Does this scholastic notion include the element of a Packard roadster5 Formally, no. Informally, yes. Confidentially, who knows? From a certain Prefect: The only way to achieve happiness in after life is to Refrain From Smoking on stairways and in corridors. Peace of mind can only be attained bv implicitly obeying all No Smoking notices no matter what vocation you choose. Success also depends in great measure upon whether you enter the new Faculty Building without permission. And if you arc in the habit oi visiting boarders without a note or fooling around libraries, it is practically impossible to attain the status which, as a Fordham man, is expected of vou. From a Sc tent 1 ft: My good Christian friends: This particular thing which is commonly called success can be attained insofar as and inasmuch as there is a fixed and definite equilibrium maintained between the particular effort put forth and the particular end in view. Hence as a resultant, the addition of .003 of a gram of potassium dichromarc will precipitate cobalt blue crystals and will give us the particular colloidal suspension in question, much moored, and under dispute. From a peaceful Pedagogue: Success, gentlemen 'and I am sure you are all gentlemen) may only be attained by inhibiting those desires which intrude upon the general peace. A gentleman (no questions at this time, please) is one who suits himself to the time and place. Unfortunately, we often find some men ill-disposed toward the notion of courtesy but no doubt they belong in the class of morons, dullards, or imbeciles. "A thing of beauty is a thing of joy forever” and "mens Sana in corporc sano” arc maxims from which we can derive the greatest benefit. (Push those chairs back where they belong, all of you and the lilv-livcrcd boy who's making that noise just keep it up. yes, keep it up.......) Lest we forger: "Is it intrinsic or extrinsic dependence5 Yes5 Thank you. Mister " "Come now: is it locutio contra mentem or not. No? Sit down!” "Gentlemen, please be in perfect quietude." "String shattered! Who ever heard of a string being shattered.” "So Amalassunta . . . she was a ballet dancer." I will now quote from Great speeches by great lawyers'.” Yes, fifty cents, perfectly justified, no time for you now, go on—go on.” 381gAutographs 382Hall of Fame Bn t AH-Around Man Done Most for Ford ham Done Most for Class Best Student Best Athlete Best Debater Best Actor- Best Poet Best Prose Writer Best Orator Best Dancer Best Line Best Sleeper Best Politician Best Artist Best Musician Best Crasher Best Boy Scout Best Dresser Best Mixer Beet Smile Most Brilliant Most Energetic Most Collegiate Most Eccentric Most Loquacious Most Debonair Handsomest Liveliest Wittiest Noisiest Laziest Most Babyish Most Careless Luckiest Dreamiest Favorite Actor Favorite Author Favorite Drink Favorite Sport Favorite Song Favorite Magazine Favorite Actress Favorite Smoke Favorite Profession Favorite Diversion Favorite Newspaper Favorite Sportj' Writer Favorite Girls' College We do not da .
