The ceaseless onrush of time has carried us through four years at Fordham and is revealing to us a vista of experiences radically different from those that we have known during the past few years. But, as a traveller, about to set out on a long voyage, turns to take a last look at his home, so also do vve pause to hastily glance back and to review briefly our college days. In the panorama there stands out clearly a record that will always be associated with our class, that is the splendid record cf the football team, the Eastern Champions. In the long list of games, beginning with the one against the Lafayette Frosli 111 1927 and ending with that at the Polo Grounds with Ruckncll in 1930, the outstanding contest was the victory over New York University in 1929 It was in this battle that the team found the power latent within it to overcome a highly toured Y'iolcr aggregation and fill the hearts of Maroon rooters with ecstasy. The monstrous rally on the eve of the game is one of the highlights of our college days We shall hardly forget the cheering and shouting in the auditorium as the last rites were read over the effigy of an N. Y. U. player, the torch lighr parade-down Elm Lane and thence to the very campus of the enemy with the loud and chal-lenging rendition of Fordham songs enroute, the serenading of the Violet students under the dormitory windows with a bucket of water as our plaudit for each rendirion of a love ballad, the pre-victory march around the foe s grounds and the frantic
MAkOON X- vvv vvv
efforts of firemen ro locate the tire th.it did not exist. Although the season included victories over Boston College. Holy Cross and Buckncll, no other triumph was greeted with as much enthusiasm as that over our neighborhood rival. The celebration continued inro the following week with rallies held all over the campus,concluding with the half holiday proclaimed by the Dean in honor of the team's accomplishment.
In 1930 the team continued its victorious march by subduing New York University, Boston College. Holy Cross, Detroit and West V irginia before it was stopped by St. Mary's, which was brought on from California to perform a task that Eastern teams had found themselves unequal to. The greatest team that Fordham or New York City ever had closed its career by slaughtering the Bison herd from Buckncll.
The Class of 31 took especial pride in the record of the team, for the majority of the Varsity eleven were members of the class. In irs history the players were outstanding not only as good athletes but also as good srudents. Fordham can point them out as examples of how well athletics and scholarship combine if only good sense and true school loyalty arc employed. So that as Siano, McMahon, Picculewicz, Hurley, Eclcwicz, Wisniewski, Folcv, Holmbcrg, Tracer, Miskinis, Shablcski, Bartos and Healey close their careers in football they leave behind them a record which Father Knickerbocker, as well as Fordham, is proud of.
Interwoven with the record of the team in our memories arc the episodes surrounding the gamer; the trips to Holy Cross and Boston with the fun derived more than compensating for the troubles encountered in the journey. The trip to Boston in '29; the dinner parties held after rhe games in the city with all their attendant details; and perhaps best of all the recitation of our individual experiences to a group of fellows indifferent to our stories because they were bursting with eagerness to tell their own. There arc a vast number of incidents associated with these eipsodes and for years ro come they will be narrated as "Do-you-remember” scones, and when there is no longer a group to listen, buc only one ro reminisce, they will be relieved in the fancy of an old man Once again the happy events will be clothed with all the brightness and joy that first accompanied them and the unhappy ones will be tempered by a philosophy that only the aged possess.
Along with these memories are those of the dances held by the Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Upstate and Brooklyn-Uong-Island Clubs. It is easy to recollect the preparations for the dances, the conversations among ourselves of the merits ol prospective partners; the night of the dance itself, the meetings of long separated friends; rhe music of the orchestra changing from waltz tempo ro a fast fox trot with no forewarning; the beautifully gowned young ladies and black-clothed young men dancing in consonance with the melody, and the joyful faces of the boys and the gentle expressions of the girls as they forgot for one nighr the external world and lived in an atmosphere of friendliness and happiness closely approaching Paradise.
In contrast to the dances there were the Sophomore Smoker and the Senior Class Banquet to the football team. Both of them were well attended and there was an overflowing of good humor and comradeship that only an event of this kind can bring forrh.
31To counsel us in our conduct at these affairs and to withdraw us for a few days at least from the outside world was the purpose of the Annual Retreat, conducted by Jesuits from the Mission Field. Daily they interested us by narrations of dire results that befall those who stray from the loving arms of Our Holy Mother, the Church, and humbly wc listened to them as they pointed out the right path and counselled us to follow it. Perhaps these holy men of God were rewarded for their exertions and sacrifices when on All Souls Day they beheld the Chapel filled with young men who had assembled there to close the Retreat bv receiving the Most Holy Eucharist and renewing their Baptismal vows. Perhaps they felt some satisfaction as they watched us silently and reverently go up to the altar rail while within our hearts we repeated the words "Oh Lord I am not worthy" as the music of the hymn flowed sweetly from the organ. The Retreats will ever remain in our mind as the expression of the spiritual current that ran through our lives at Fordham and together with the First Friday Devotions held in the Chapel, the Sodality meetings, and the simple but pious May Devotions held in the Quadrangle, raised our college careers above the mundane.
During our Junior Year the Student elections provided an interesting contrast to the Religious services. Whereas the latter were quiet and restful, the former were spirited and exciting. They provided an interesting interlude in the rigors of our scholarly labors and although hotly contested resulted in the forming of close friendships between every one concerned. Some of us in the future may be candidates lor public offices bur wc doubt rhar future elections will enthrall us as did those of our Junior Year. The first contest resulted in the election of Bill Drcscher as Editor-in-Chief of the Maroon and the appointment of Tim O'Leary as business manager. The second in the selection of John Lane as President of the Athletic Association and of Ed Bill and Tom Hurley as the other officers. The third in the appointing of the Senior Class Officers, namely: Bob Boyle, President; Tony Pisani, Vice-President; George Cunningham, Secretary, and Charlie MacAloon, Treasurer.
In previous years Bill McMahon had held the Presidency of the Class and had ably guided it through the bitter experiences of humiliations as Freshmen; the tyrannical domination over the newcomers when wc were Sophomores and the political combats of our third year when his justice and intelligence helped us to solve the perplexities arising from rhe choice of new officials In Freshman year the President was ably assisted by Ray Hurley, Vice-President; Ed Ricca. Secretary and Bill O'Beirnc, Treasurer. The following year Charles Lynch had replaced Ray Hurley, with Tony Pisani and Charles Jones making their appearances as Secretary and Treasurer. With the coming of Junior Year, Pisani moved up to the Vicc-Presidency and Rav Hurley returned as Representative. The official roster was completed by the addition of the names of Ed Bradley, Secretary, and Tom Siano, Treasurer.
Within recent years, through the zeal of the officials of the school and of the students, there has been developed at Fordham a well-rounded set of extra-curricular activities The student leaders have always been men of sincere school interest who did not hesitate to work sacrificingly and unselfishly for the success of the activities. The coming of our Senior year found many of these positions of leader, vacated by graduation, filled by some of our classmates no less worthy of the trust and responsibilities of their positions than their predecessors.
52The Band, which added so much to the glamour and color of the football games continued under the fine leadership of Joe Gatti with Tony Pisani gaily leading the hand down the held in his [Position as Drum Major.
The Ram found a highly efficient Editor-in-Chief in John Lane, ablv supported bv an enterprising staff consisting of Ralph Low, the innovator of The Interview’'; Bill McCue, who continued to amuse the school with his "Ramblings, ' John Field, the Sports Editor; Ed Ricca, the smiling debonair Managing Editor; Jerry MacKin-nev, the ever resourceful Circulation Manager; Angelo Badolato. genial Reference Manager and a hard working news staff consisting of John McManmon and Phil Ryan.
The staff of the Monthly, the Fordham magazine, which although it had already won high praise from ourside sources, was delightfullv improved during the past year; we find Pete Cusack. Bill Cusack, Nelson Edge, Bill Hines and Ed Sillierc contributing articles and poems, while Tim O’Learx continued to Ik Business Manager (or the second year and accomplished a feat in handling the duties of that office.
In the dramatic field the Class rinds itself no less well represented, for among rhosc taking an active part in the furtherance of the work of the Mimes and Mummers arc Joe O Donohue, Tom Waldic, George Nicolaus, George Collins, Vinccnr Carlin, Bill Ciolko, Bill Sibrans and Jack Cawley. In Senior Year many of the above were seen in the excellent presentation of Pinero's "Trclawncy of the Wells," given at the Collins Auditorium.
One of Fordham’s prides in extra-curricular activities is its excellent Debating Team. Again, in the record of this team is shown Fordham s asrounding growrh in recent years, for within our college career the College’s forensic representatives have swept on to victory in many debates and this year, beginning with the triumph over New York University, another glorious record is being set.
A corresponding example of Fordham's fostering of functions for the outlet of student enthusiasm is the development of the Rifle Team, which has already established a distinguished record and is adding to it with each contest.
On the basketball court, the baseball field, and in the swimming tank, the Class has some of its members taking a leading part. Captain Zaleski and Pete Wisniewski contribute to the Class record on the court. Captain Elccwicz leads Shccrin, Andrews, Aube, Foley, Maynard and Rvan as they cavort upon the field,and in the tank Tom Waldie is aiding the team in compiling a list of victories.
Few events rank with the Glee Club Concert in point of interest and entertainment. The night of the Concert has always been a gala one and the Club has always provided a most interesting evening for those who attended. During the past year John Kelly has directed the Club in a scries of concerts at which they equalled and even surpassed the fine performances given in other years.
The wild exuberance of our vouth has been tcni|x:rcd on six occasions by notes of sadness which filled us with wonder and sorrow as we saw our ranks depleted by the Grim Reaper It caused us great anguish to lose our chums but we feel that our life has been made richer by their presence even if they were with us onlv for a short time. Five of our classmates, Frank Dowling, Frank Attanasio, Larry Kegan, Cliff Smith
33and Boh Briercon heard the voice of the Master and were borne in the gentle hands of angels as the ascended into the abode of the Saints. Now from on high they watch us as wc struggle along the path ot life, and moved hv pity and compassion they intercede with the Divine Saviour mercifully to guide us along the path to eternity.
Now in June, 1951, the old Rose Hill gates lie lazily open, utterly indifferent to the throngs that pour through them eagerly making their way to the scene of the Commencement Exercises. A gloriously rollicking sun gaylv rides high in the heavens boisterously trying to pierce the shade offered by the heavy leafed elms that line the road. To the sounds of a pompous processional the Seniors march through a lane of friends to receive their diplomas. Engulfed by congratulating relatives and friends wc forget to sav a last word of farewell to the companions of our college days until we see a lone straggler departing from the campus, now almost empty and leaving us alone with our dreams. The four years of richly varied experiences are now ended as wc are swept hv the wave of life from the gentle and Catholic influence of Alma Mater into the bitterness and jov of the external world The years have been short, very shorr, bur during them wc have formed bonds of friendship and loyalty that will never be severed, for nothing can separate in spirit those who are united by the ties of pure friendship.

Ed seems to us to be a person ili-cation of good humor. He has an infectious smile and a manner that draws one to him. Whether he is called upon for recitation in class or he is in the company of friends, Ed maintains a composure and assurance that is the delight of all.
A perfect gentleman at all times, he is imbued with the true Ford-ham spirit. With the loyalty and courage that is his, there is no doubt, that, when we look for those successful in life, Ed will be among the foremost

Bill has a naturally retiring disposition, bur even his shyness did not dim the steady brilliancy of his scholastic achievements.
Avoiding notoriety and shunning all self-aggrandizement, he has at tractcd a circle of friends bv those sterling qualities which he has so quietly manifested.
Bill is a worshiper at the shrine of science, and is numbered among those who spend their lives tracking down elusive theories.
Ever a loyal rooter for his Alma Mater, he will manifest equal loyalty as an alumnus.
We don’t have to wish you success, Bill, for we know your abiI iry to forge to the front.

There are those who arc without enemies and who arc rich in friends. Such a one was Andy, and for our part, we arc grateful for the four years association that has given us such a classmate. To know him was a pleasure; nay more, it was an honor.
The members of the Mendel Club always looked forward to the time when Andy was to read his paper, because of the choice bits of research he would impart. Andy will study medicine, and is certain to be a worth-while addition to the profession.

Tn Louis is exemplified the ancient maxim that silence is golden Not that we mean to suggest that he is dull or disintcresting.
Far from it! Louis realized that there is a time for work and a time for play. He is never so completely immersed in his studies that his friendly nature suffers seriously.
Louis’ warm-hearted Latin temperament makes him a welcome-addition to any group and has founded for him friendships which will last for a lifetime.
Louis intends to grace the medical profession wherein we are certain that he will he more than a credit to his Alma Mater.Joseph W. Ai.bkrt, A.B. Regis High School

Joe has a keen analytic mind which is never satisfied until it has discovered the exact truth. This faculty has enabled him to amass a store of knowledge which is at once profound and varied. It is with pleasure that one meets Joe, for his comments and opinions arc as edifying as they arc interesting.
Furthermore, Joe's personality is engaging and pleasant, and his calm manner bespeaks his self assurance. With these estimable characteristics, we know that he will travel far in his chosen profession.
39If silence is golden, John is the richest man in the world; never have we heard him speak more than ten words in the ordinary course of a day Ikir, when it comes to exam time, John becomes voluble, and how voluble! He glances at the questions and literally pours out a fund of information into that innocent blue-book while the rest of us sir in awed amazement, wondering how anyone can know so much. Needless to say he invariably lands a mark in the 90's.
His persevering diligence augurs well for the future.

Clothed in (lie sacred white garments of the Chemistry Department. Andy roamed majestically about initiating che Sophs into the unholy mysteries of that black' art. It was only a short time ago that he too was breaking innumerable test tubes in his .cal to concoct hideous smells and breathtaking explosions. Now that Andy has that elusive bit of parchment, he will shortly hie himself to “Med" School where he will have full occasion to call upon his scientific knowledge. We hope that he doesn't insist on us calling him Dr. Aloia.

This stern looking gentleman with the wee mustache is perhaps one of the quietest men on the campus. Cool, reserved and self-sufficient he finds, as most wise men do, that his own company is the best.
As for extra-curricula activities, the heavy schedule of the B. S. course prevents him from taking an active part, but in Freshman he showed his talent as a playwright by having one of his brain children produced in the One-Act Plav Contest.

Hailing from the Keystone State, Neil has for four years been one of the outstanding and best liked men in the school. Possessed of a wonderful pitching arm, a strong solid character, and a liking for his native state that is at times alarming, you couldn’t help being attracted to him.
He has a cheery smile for everyone. We have often wondered whether this was due to the look of amazement on the faces of batters as they tried to see the ball go by them.
4 Words can hardly painr a true picture of Angc. To a scholastic record that is most creditable, he has managed, between hurried trips to his home in Westchester. to impart his aid to in numerable activities of worth on the campus. The Harvester Club fell his guiding influence as President, and numerous were his con-trbutions to our wcekv paper as a member of the Raw Staff. But it was the Cilee Club that claimed the major share of his constructive efforts.
In short we need not predict success for him in the world at large; it is written in his works.

A little trace of Old Erin, a large portion of genuine Irish personality, and an immeasurable quantity of the friendship of his classmates arc the things that have endeared Joe to us. He needs nothing more. Native intelligence and intellectual honesty render Joe a man who has received, and who has earned the respect of all who come in contact with him.
No matter what may be his lot in the future, no matter where he finds himself, there is one thing wc all know, Joe will land on his feet and like it.

"rpo keep your head when all X about you arc losing theirs.”
These immortal words of Kipling seem to be particularly applicable to this Son of Hartford. Ed’s calm, confident air of supreme indifference in the face of impending obstacles, obstacles which creased the brows of his classmates, has always been a source of cm v.
He has shown us that a playful manner may disguise a spirit of firmest purpose, that fun and conviviality can be the handmaids of true depth and sincerity, that character and worth arc best found mi the company of laughter.

Here we have rhe well-rounded man, truly a gentleman, scholar and dispenser of mirth. Big of stature, light of heart. Bill would challenge a world of pcssi mists and conquer them with the logic of laughter.
Possessed with grace beyond measure, coupled with an imperturbable calmness, he is exceptionally endowed with the ability to take things in his stride and succeed in all with an enviable nonchalance. We admired his ability, marvelled at his disposition, but mostly cherished his compan ionship. Au revoir. Bill, for in a short time, we shall he rejoicing in the jov of your assured success.

Quiet and unassuming, John never soughr rhe applause of the multitude; on the contrary, he possesses a certain modesty which greatly enhances his jovial spirit.
A Ford ham affair has always been John's affair, for his ever faithful presence was unfailing.
He is a charter member of the College Warblers, and his rich, distinctive voice will be sorely missed.
With an extraordinary amount of common sense and deep regard for loyalty, we know that, when Ford ham days arc over and life’s journey has begun, John will map out a plausible schedule to complete success.Edmund G. Bill, A.B. St.John's High School

We must associate Ed with the gallant knights of old; a handsome, spirited, energetic lad from the coniines of Long Island.
Throughout his four years on the Campus, Ed has played the dual role of honor scholar and congenial pal. Earnestness and thoroughness graced his every move. Space forbids a eulogy, but his portrayal demands glaring colors. A leader in extra-curricula affairs, foremost in ability and First in the hearts of his classmates.
With a fond farewell and a sincere wish for a bountiful harvest of future happiness, we sorrowfully contemplate his departure.

But what is more. Jack manages to balance this pleasant trait with a deeper sense of responsibility which gained for him an enviable position among his classmates as a student.

Borgie often gave us moments of wonder when wc tried to figure out how one man could know so much about the “Sport of Kings" and still be the hardworking and earnest student he was. He would wager with you at any time, on anything, or at any place and there arc many of us who have reason to regret. For in this, as in everything else he entered, he persevered, and the only stopping place for him was mastery. He has won a deep place in our hearts and we re sorry to give him up.

We suspect that the spirit of the age in which "Di" lives is so uncongenial to his free, independent nature that his silent masque is hut the expression of his whole-hearted contempt for it and all the Natalie y for which it stands.
"Di" is a lover of the classics and has acquired a vast fund of knowledge from his extensive classical readings. Therein he sees the most satisfactory expression of mail’s spiritual yearning and feels that a return to its simplicity is sorely needed in this Twentieth Century, work-a-day-world.
R y's most notable character-- isnes are the brilliancy of his mind and the keenness of his wit. With these gifts he has carved himself a niche in our memories, which no mere passing of rime can erase. His flashing thrusts of humor have never failed to delight his audience and he is a welcome addition to any social gathering. But it is in the field of scholarship that Ray is best known. His faultless reasoning has made even the most difficult problems appear ridiculously easy.
We part, Ray,yet,knowing how splendidly you arc equipped for life, we are confident of vour success.

A gentle-man of the Newman type, kindness and humility are among his assets, and never has he been heard to utter a harsh word against anyone. What a heritage to leave behind! To know that he bears with him the esteem and goodwill of the class, to realize that we are all "rooting’’ for him, who so loyally and unstintingly rooted lor us, is all that we ask him to remember.Edward J.

It is a sad fact that some men we meet will soon be forgotten. But our memories of Ed will always remain. For it was his healthy exuberance which entertained us, his strength of character on which we depended, his sage advice to which we turned.
For Ed possessed these gifts, and unselfishly placed them at the disposal of others. So we take this opportunity to pay tribute to this sterling character who would rather have had the story of his good work kept in the shadow of his modesty.

Keen-minded and regular, are the words which best describe John. Being the honor man in his class in Junior merely made his smile the brighter and his “hello” the friendlier. There has always been about him a boyish eagerness to accomplish something. This, perhaps, explains his four years of academic triumphs.
The teaching profession is calling John. All it need ask to be benefited by his entrance into its ranks, is that he apply his bountiful talents in the same generous way he did at Fordham.

Cardinal Newman’s definition of a gentleman is rarely personified in every derail, but that definition alone adcquatclv portrays Tom always agreeable, ever considerate and kind. His quietness is the result of cultured associations, his humor is born of propriety.
Because he allowed few to penetrate his silent, gentlemanly cloak, few really knew him, but those that did met the perfectness of true gentility in every respect, under all circumstances.

He is a smiling sunny-disposi-tioned fellow. Coming to us in Junior year, he has in a relatively short time won the friendship of many. The Maryland sunshine has left its print upon him. Vincent, however, is serious-minded when the time for jocularity is passed. He studies -and well. From him have come no exceptionally coruscating flashes of intellectual brilliancy, but rather an evenness which is more to be desired.
In two years he has attuned himself to the true spirit of Fordham. Such adaptability will be an invaluable asset in his chosen profession of medicine.
Optimism first presented itself to us as a concrete qualification and truly adequate personification, when four years ago Joe carelessly swaggered along the "elm lined path” of Fordham.
His attitude was most gratifying and soothing to his Freshman classmates and they observed in Joe a veritable gold-mine of knowledge whose ingenuity perceived fallacies, profound or otherwise, in all problems. A difficulty? Well, delay no longer, if it is your earnest desire to arrive at the proper solution, call out. Joe, O Joe, come here a moment. He comes and the difficulty is solved.

In every college there arc roughly three groups of students— the athletic, the popular, and the scholarly-minded. The last seemingly shun the limelight in the calm pursuance of their studies. Although this group somewhat evade the attention of their fellow students, we often find among them extremely interesting personalities. Edward comes under rbis category. Of an unassuming personality, he exemplified a conscientious learnedness which impelled a deep respect, and vet his wit added an informal touch, a mellowness to his sincerity which was admired by his friends.
With such ability to concentrate as his, Edward will without doubt be able to face the future with no uncertain degree of success.
If wc arc to sum up our impression of Joe, wc would immediately select the word congenial. Wc do not know whether he affects environment or environment affects him, but we do know that he always seems satisfied, and that everyone near him appears the same. Not only can Joe say: "I have no enemies,' but he can even go further and say very positively, "I have friends in the academic world, in the athletic world, and in the social world.”
Wc predict for him a most successful career in law, his avowed profession, and wc congratulate him upon it, for wc have ample evidence of his fitness and ability.

Perhaps we shouldn't say “wider experience” at that, for there is hardly an athletic contest that doesn't number “Luther" as one of the spectators. The newspaper profession will surely profit if heelects to enter it.

It is said that one must live with a person before one really knows him, but once you have heard “Louie” talk, and have associated with him a while, a feeling of utmost friendship and security will surround you. Tall and handsome. "Louie" combines a sympathetic and an understanding nature, which probes beneath the veneer of superficiality, with a depth of personality. The medical world will proht greatly by his advent into it, since his determination, ability, and goodwill must spell success for him.
Tiih old Ciceronian problem confronts us again, not where to begin but how best to find an ending within the space allotted. The maxim, Quod facis, bene fac,” seems to permeate Artie's whole being.

Whether on the basketball court or in the classroom, he pursued his objective with a grim determination that is worthy of praise. Combine these qualities with a genial irresistible grin and you have a true picture of Artie.

Expressions oi subtle humor, an unruffled and undisturbed nature are inseparable parts of Jim's personality. He is ever satisfied with his particular fate whatever it may he. It is because of this that Jim has never experienced any difficulties as a student and has never been wanting in friends.

To those few who really understood him, Dan was a most agreeable and sincere friend in all that the term implies, and a scholar of unlimited ability. His mental prowess was finely balanced by a keen sense of humor which diminished formality but did not descend to mere convention.

These long and tiring journeys did not prevent John from being an earnest student. In fact, an examination of his record will show that he stood well up in the Class. His enthusiasm and capabilities will make him an alumnus of whom Fordham may well be proud.
141Warner is one of chat type, which by their contacts, alleviate our human woes; once submitted to his judgment, they sink to the rank of the trivial. His line personality and friendliness have been live factors during our college days and will be remembered always.
Within this classmate, lies the student, calm, judicious and thoughtful, with a record of consistent good scholarship. Be tlie-occasion academic or social, he was willing to lend whatever aid he was cap able of.
This friendship is one to he valued, let us hope that it be one that years will not fade nor glory dim.

Four of our happiest years have been colored with the good-natured, quiet, unassuming disposition that was characteristic of him. Always eager to lend a helping hand to a fellow-classmate, his kindness and thoughtfulness won lor him a host of friends.
We may forget philosophy and other things, but as long as our mind and memory can conjure memories of friends like "Moco,’’ a charm and a smile not to be duplicated, college years will not have been ill-spent.

If we were classifying our fellow-students under types such as intellectual and emotional, we would, without doubt, place Andy among the intellectuals. By intellectual we mean one of unusual mental capacity not for facts alone but for drawing conclusions from facts. Most of us are inclined to study indifferently. Andy, however, through sincere effort, has overcome this defect and has developed a mental alertness which at once distinguishes him. Many say that accuracy is the soul of scholarship. If we interpret it thus, then in Andy we have the true scholar.

His sincerity of purpose and tenacious adherence to the ideals of Ford-ham cannot but promise a bright future, full of the peace and quietude his personality will give it.

Thl two prominent qualities in the character of our friend arc cheerfulness and charitableness towards his fellowstudents.These, blended with a keen sense of humor, arc "Mac’s" contribution toward good-fellowship. This rare combination made him a very agreeable companion both in the classroom and on the campus. His unfailing good humor brightened many an otherwise dull class or gloomy "lab" period.
What "Mac” intends to do after graduation is yet indefinite but we mav predict with certainty that a man of his calibre cannot fail to succeed. Good-bye and good luck, old pal!
This son ol Ford ham came to us four years ago from a quiet hamlet on the hanks of the Hudson. Since then we have come to know and appreciate “Mac” for his varied characteristics and accomplishments. 11 is opinions arc always well-grounded by a wide and diversified reading, and by an ever hungry intellect which, to he trite, takes things apart to see what makes them tick. Coupled with these admirable qualities others go hand in hand, a love for music, poetry, and all that is worthwhile in life.
We know that "Mac's” good nature and broad knowledge will hear him lightly along to success in his chosen field.

187Hughig hails from the well-known "hub" of the world, greater Boston. Though rather un assuming, he can claim a host of friends among his classmates Hugh’s forte, outside of class, was football. His ability as a player is attested to by the fact that he was a member of our great team since his Freshman year. As a memher of the Massachusetts Club, the success it gained was a result, in no small way of the interest he showed in the Club, since its inception.
Hugh disclosed the fact that his ultimate goal is Law, and the future will surely grant success to his forensic ability if his present attainments Ik- any criterion.

Senior year found Wally a very busy man indeed. The dunes of the classroom and the activities of a football manager are no light burdens, but Wally in his own quiet,efficient wav, acquitted himself well in both; his marks were high and the trying situations that are the daily bane of a manager's existence, were solved without any fuss.
Quiet, unassuming, and efficient, lie should have no trouble in perfecting himself in whatever profession he mav choose to embrace.
There is an old adage to the effect that still water rims deep, and this appears l cst to interpret the character of Edward, a quiet even silent lad, who seems to find solace in the calm pursuance of his studies. Edward is a conscientious student who takes his education seriously. Quiet persons, when they do speak, invariably have something enlightening to say. Perhaps he is a bit shy?— this may merely he a manifestation of our friend’s deep sclf-rc-S|x;ct a superb qualification ol youth.
The mental power of concentration is probably one of the greatest assets governing success todav, and so we arc most optimistic about Edward's future.

Keen, analytical reasoning has characterized Jim’s classwork from his early Freshman days. No problem, however Gargantuan, ever fazed this intellectual giant. In a cool, modest manner, Jim would train the weapons of his intellect on the difficulty, and proceed to rake it wirh a gunfire of logic that soon forced it to surrender to the cohorts of certitude. Jim carried this ability into other fields, and it is our belief that some day he will astound the men of law with his splendid reasoning. Good luck, Jim, and may you work out file’s problems in the same determined manner as you have here at Ford-ham.

In class Tom changed; he was quiet and attentive as he took page after page of notes and readily assimilated the complex problems of Psychology and Ethics.

This same cleverness and ability has stood Ed in good stead throughout his four years here at school. He has endeared himself to all his associates. Through this same personality.
We know that Ed, in no matter what companv lie finds himself, will experience no difficulty in maintaining his customary cheerful jxaise.

In many a "quiz" class, to our delight, Tom would advance an objection that would cause a wary instructor ro proceed with extreme care in answering it correctly.

His boundless optimism and good-fellowship make “Frank” one of the most popular and likable men in the Class. As a supporter of Fordham activities, moreover, he has few equals. He lias unseliishly given much of his time in shaping the destinies of the Swimming Team.

In such a large gathering of youths, a rather silent and unassuming personality can readily escape notice. Nevertheless, Guido, to those who had the pleasure of his acquaintance, was a likable companion and a pleasant chum. As a member of the Italian Club, and theJun ior "E " Club he showed his devotion to the things that are Ford ham's.

Our friend from Long Island possessed a deep respect for his Alma Mater a superb quality-in any undergraduate. This spirit of loyalty found its highest expression, not only in his conversation with his fellow students but to an even greater extent, in his affiliation with the various college-clubs and their activities. He was a prominent member of the Brooklyn-Long Island Club and of several dance committees. He was also appointed to the staff of the Senior Week Committee.
With such organizing ability, our friend cannot fail to make his mark in future life.
231George possesses many admirable qualities which have won him the respect and admiration of his fellow classmen. 11 is brilliant humor and whole-souled good-will make him a welcome-addition to any gathering. The many activities in which he par ticipatcd testify to his ability in almost every form of undergraduate endeavor George, moreover,is a loyal supporter of Fordham activities and he has given much ol his time to assure their success.
We arc confident that a character, manly and wholesome, cannot but reflect glory upon Fordham, splendidly equipped as he is to meet all of life's problems successfully.

Many are endowed with a faculty which enables them to delight everyone in their company; others in spite of scholastic brilliance, completely fail associate beings. It seems that a well-balanced man should possess, at least moderately, both qualities. Tom. we think, is such a one. Always pleasant and cheerful do we find him, vet the facility with which lie gathers friends about him is not lessened even when he immerses himself in his studies.

The wit. the intelligence, the incentive for leadership of Old Ireland have all found a place in Joe and have made him an active, never-tiring student leader of whom Fordham is indeed proud. As Joe graduates, Fordham nods in gratitude to him for all he has accomplished in her name, and she eagerly awaits the new laurels he will bring her by his unquenchable enthusiasm.

Phil truly is an all-around man successful in everything he undertakes. We sincerely hope that he will meet with the same success in whatever vocation he in.iv choose.Tt is a strange thing how little one comes to know rhe people with whom we come into contact. Hut it is stranger when one considers it, that when we come to place Tom Rvan on paper we feel that we are about to do him an injustice.
We might talk about his activities in sports and in the classroom, we might talk on his Celtic blood, but it would be far better for us to remember him as Tom Rvan the man.

Sincerity and promptitude characterized Ludwig, and the former quality was inherent in all his thoughts and actions. In discussions outside of class, Ludwig was always ready with an opinion which invariably resulted from sober deliberation and to which he tenaciously held, irrespective of the barrage of eloquence leveled at his position. All in all. Ludwig was a conscientious student with a nice sense of his duty to his fellow students and to his Alma Mater.
The place our friend will fill in the world is still uncertain, bur let us wish him the greatest good which man can offer success.
273R lpii will be a credit to what-• ever profession he adopts. This observation is nor idle praise but is based on four years of constant and pleasurable companionship with him. His cool, blithe, debonairc front encases within it a heart which has erected for him a magnificent edifice of friendship.

George is our idea of what a college man should be. A good mind, a keen sense of humor, and a gracious personality are but a few of the attributes of our friend from Flushing. George has never had any scholastic worries and is an ardent sportsman. Since his Freshman year, he has been one of the mainstays of the tennis team and showed his worth as manager of the same.
George will go far. We hold it an honor to have associated with him and arc proud to number him among our friends.

Oh blessed eyes! look back at the sun and catch its face. That, bearing its llaiuc-likc image in our inner minds We may go forth to mysterious valleys and seek our place.
And if we have lose the music and the pulsing richness That lies asleep in the pleasant valleys at our backs— Yet shall all things be beautiful only in the light That teeming over our shoulders etches out our tracks.
Yet we shall sit before a fire remembering—
And ineffably bitter shall the memory be. Still, sweet.
For dreams can draw together the pieces of a broken bubble And snatch the storied hours from beneath Time's feet.
Farewell, nurturcr of dreams! let us leave you, singing— Singing a song of strength as we depart.
Some song, oh mighty Mother, you turned to every mood. Let us go singing. Men of Fordham, her song in our hearts!

W. Bingham Cox Frank J. Rio John J. Havi:s John P. McManus
Sonic enlightened elder once told a member of the Class of '32 that the first two years of college are the harder and that the last two arc relatively easy. He was slightly mistaken, cither that or he never came into contact with the intricacies of the Physics Laboratory This docs not mean that work is distasteful to chc present Juniors. Oh no wc have a sincere affection for it! We seldom leave class until an hour or so after the final bell in order that wc may clear up all class work and begin the morrow properly.
It would be a grave error to omit reference to the new Physics Building and its excellent facilities, which the present Junior Class is the first to use And it would be a far graver error, even in recounting onl the doings of the class, to neglect a hint at the splendid impression made upon the Juniors by the new President of Fordham. Father Hogan. If anything can arouse Juniors from the lethargx attributed to them in song and story, it will lx- rhe youthful energy of the present Rector.
Wc almost tremble as wc turn to extra-curricular activities. The reason for this is the unprecedented fact that in the ( lass of '52 there is scarcely a member who has not excelled in some voluntary accomplishment. Since it would lx impossible to name them all. we can but mention a few.
32-4For example. Robert Ponsiglionc and Robert Nebot are the assistant news editors of The Kiwi. Maurice . Connell is rhe staff photographer, and his pictures give to it a graphic quality that it never before possessed. Henry Whirc. besides being a member of the news staff , has charge of the alumni notes. Francis McKenna represents Junior on the sports staff. D. Edward McCarthy constitutes the business staff. And we find the followingjunior names on the news staff: Coughlin, McNamara, Di Giammarco, Leprohon, White. Coman. Tirdcl. Moshy, Walsh. Meany, Leary and Clcarv.
The Fordham Monthly is under the guidance of Editor-in-Chicf Richard J. Burke. Without losing its appeal to the intelligentsia it is becoming more readable for the ordinary student, probably because of Mr. Burke's new policy. Joseph Coughlin has another classmate on the staff in Maurice Connell, appointed this year.
Probabh the entire Junior Class joined the Immaculate Conception Sodality when it was reorganized; and though in accordance with tradition the important officers are Seniors, Juniors do much of the work on the special committees, such as the Speakers Section and the Social Service Section. Juniors arc also prominent in the Harvester Club. The fine work of Bernard J. O'Connell and Martin Tracey in announcing the Fordham-Detroit football game will be remembered for years to come by all who were fortunate enough to be in the Recreation Room on that eventful afternoon.
In the Council of Debate, Mr. O'Connell was a member of the team that defeated N. Y. U He is a member of the Lecture Committee, and is prominent in lecture-debate work. Henry White and Patrick Crowley have already been in more lecture-debates than they will be able to remember by the end of the year, and are scheduled to debate against Holy Cross. Nearly every Junior member of the Council has been or is scheduled to be on a Iccturc-dcbarc.
The varsity play, "Trelawney of the Wells,” was a triumph for Junior talent. Joseph F. Coughlin s “scintillating portrayal of Avonia Bunn, captivated the audiences on both nights of the play's presentation. " Thomas E. Paradinc was a perfect Sir William Gower. W. Bingham Cox seemed ideally suited for the part of Tom Wrench Bernard J O'Connell’s assumed awkwardness in rhe role of Arthur Gower was a revelation in natural acting. Robert B. Collins was a real Victorian old maid as Trafalgar Gower. Edward F. Miles' loquacity and John F. Costello’s nonchalance in the parts of Tclfcr and Parrott respectively arc already a matter of Fordham dramatic tradition. Juniors shone also in the minor parts. The stage manager, Vincent J. Campbell, is a Junior, as are most of his men.
No account of Junior Year would be complete without some mention of the Minor Logic Specimen. Comparatively few men in the class were called upon in this inquisitorial gathering, so it should be a source of happy memories to the vast majority who breathed a sigh of relief at the close. Fate, in the person of Father Deane, called the students at random, and in spite of the short notice, psychological hazards, etc., all acquirtcd themselves nobly. This splendid showing was probabh due in pail to the kindlv manner of the Board of Examiners, but it stands nevertheless as a tribute to the talent ol 2 Among those called upon were Messrs. Moseley, O’Connell. McManus, Haves, and Ratigan.
The lass of 2 remains distinguished in the realm of song. NormanT. LeBoeuf continues as accompanist to the Glee Club, while Bannigan, Paradinc, O’Connell, McManus, Tirdcl, Hartmann. McCarthy, Carey, Gilhulv, and Gorman are numbered among its members. Mr. Tirdcl also plays the violin in the Fordham Orchestra. Junior is likewise well represented on the Fordham University Band
Wc might refer to the other organizations on the campus in which Junior influence is felt with excellent effects; such as the Spanish Club with Robert Nebot as its President, the French Club with Norman LeBocuf high in its councils,the new French Monthly, Fordham Franc , with the same gentleman as its editor and Marcel Dclegre as one of his staff; the Plavshop and Quill Club which arc practically under Junior control. Joseph F. Coughlin is President of the latter organization, and it includes Richard J. Burke, the liditor of the Monthly, among us members.
When c come to athletics, we must ask the gentle reader to check up on us by means of another department in this volume. In the swimming-pool, Adams,Rutzen, Whelan, O'Brien, Jack Power, Markey, and Harry White have been upholding the Junior reputation. On the basketball court Ransom Parker, Johnny Hayes, and Jim Comerford have been most conspicuous in their contribution to the success of the Maroon ream. On the diamond this spring, to |udgc from past performances, Tobin should bring honor to Fordham and '32.
But now for football. How shall wc introduce the Juniors prominent in this field of activity? What shall we say of Big Jim Murphy, the Captain elect of the football team, and one of the highest scorers in the country5 of Johnny Jams, Frank Mcrriwcl! incarnate?—of Jack Fisher, whose passing ability rivals Benny Friedman's? Perhaps the best way to get an idea of Junior contributions to the gridiron is to review some of the games; but even this scarcely does justice to their accomplishments.
Of the eleven touchdowns made in the game with Baltimore, Murphy made five and Janis two. In the game with Buffalo, Murphy and Jams made four touchdowns apiece. On that hectic occasion when Holy Cross was defeated, it was Jim Murphy who went over for the winning touchdown. When Fordham downed N. Y. U. this year, Murphy was again the scoring agent. In the victory over West Virginia, Janis made two out of the three touchdowns. Two touchdowns by Janis in the last quarter of the Detroit game were the means of saving the day for Fordham. In the Buckncll game, Murphy was responsible for one ol the touchdowns. Of course it would be absurd to give all the credit for these scores to the men who made them. The strong line of Seniors led bv Tony Siano deserves the lion's share. But wc would remind our reader that the back must be able to run and dodge, and that Murphy and Janis themselves are the best examples of what we mean by this. Moreover, the splendid defensive ability of Davis and Conroy, both Juniors, should not be ignored.
Such, then, arc the achievements of the members of the Junior Class during the scholastic year 1930-1931- Did we sav the achievements? Wc should have said the beginning of the achievements. The year is young yet. The one-act-plav contest, the oratorical contest, the baseball season, and numberless other affairs remain to be run off; and if the Class of '32 runs true to form as it did last year, it will carry off a large
share of the honors.

Tin members of the Sophomore (.lass returned on September 15th. This is putting it rather mildly. In rrnrh.rhcy strutted up the Elm-lined path and accorded each fair tree a passing glance of complete and condescending patronage They gazed on the ivv-lined buildings with a paternal air of mortgage holders. Thc commented importantly on the improvements, they passed approving judgment on the Physics Building and the Quadrangle. The Freshman Building was the center of their lordly survey, and they turned critical eyes upon the slightly dazed Freshmen.
The customary introductory meetings and gatherings were attended to quite speedily and so, too, the pleasant task of acquainting the newcomers with the fine traditions of Fordham and Fordham's finest sons the Sophomores. Later, the da for which the Upper Classmen had waited, arrived. The little caps looked more ill-fitting than ever, the ties were cspcciallx ludicrous and the shiny buttons blazoned the Lower Classmen all over the Campus. For a whole week the stirring Raw Song was manfully mutilated by the aspiring and perspiring Frosh. Underneath this show of humorous despotism a fine spirit of healthy rivalry and general fair play rapidly cemented the tics of friendship between the Under Classes and effectually dispelled the newcomers’ fears of excessive hazing and horsc-plav. The period of transition soon passed over, yet we of the Up| cr Class wish to take an opportunity to congratulate,sincerely, the Freshmen for the fine spirit in which they took to the proceedings a spirit which, for ardour and enthusiasm, quite surpassed the wildest dreams of the exuberant Vigilantes.
V V V V vwvvvv vv V v wvHut, alas for the new-found lordship of the Sophs, the Classes began, and with them starred the struggle with some of the most rigorous schedules of the course. Nothing daunted however hv the novel subject matter and the nearing threats of examinations, the class found time to gain distinction in the sphere of college and Sophomore activities. The Class was accorded a novel and noteworthy treat in the renewal of the Sophomore "A" Academy under the experienced tutelage of l ather Francis P. Don-ncllv, S.J Again the arsitv Play, this time the ever-engaging theatrical drama of “Trclawncx of the Wells" found the Class well represented in the ranks of the college Thespians. Chief among them were Edward Purccli's portrayal of the fading Mrs. Tclfcr.John S. Stella as the obsequious Captain dePhoenix, and the fine characterizations of Lawrence Ehrhart, and James F. McGrath. Then too, we have the unsung heroes of backstage and scene shifting pursuits among whom the Sophs were helpfully present
With the advancing fall and the advancing steps of Ford ham toward football glory, the Class of ‘33 found places in the ranks that ably backed up the mighty Senior line and hackfield Chief among the Class gridders was the herculean Connie Murphy in the line. Then with the later advent of the court representatives of Coach Kcllchcr the flashing plav of Willie Putzer and Jerri Radicc earned them places within the inner ranks of the ream and was the main cog in seeing the ream through the remarkable metropolitan victories at the end of the season.
Naturally it would be strange to pass over the athletic distinctions of the Sophomore class without some reference to its nationally known board-and cinder pounder, one Joseph McCluskey. Although he has suffered some setbacks at the hands of more experienced trackmen yet his pace and timing loomed up greater and brighter for Fordham hopes. It was well known that he had his heart set on the 1 ntcrcollegiales and the memorable evening of March 7th saw the maroon-jcrscycd runner outdistance the fleetest of the collegians to flash home to a victory that also was the smashing of a record, for he travelled the heart-breaking two miles in the time of 9.17,a new mark for the I. C. A. A. A. A. Others among the Class of '33 arc ably seconding the brilliant work of McCluskey as members of the small and courageous track team.
In the realms of the amateur playwrights and make-up artists, the Varsity One-Act Plays, the final contests were run off after weeks of preliminary throat clearing and dramatic gesturing, on the night of February 22nd. Here, too, the Sophomores were strongly present in the production of Francis J Bauer's “The Spot." and the characterization of Edward Martin, Edward Purcell. John S. Stella, and other budding actors, who ably supplemented and rivalled the work of the predominant Upper Classmen.
To turn to activities more essentially connected with the Class, the work of the Hughes Debating Socictv during the past year has been excellent. The Holy Rosary Sodality, too, has taken great strides forward in their service of the Queen, undertaking active missionary and catechetical work in the lower citv. The Forum of De-
bare is under the able presidency of Edward A. Martin, while the Sodality is governed by Thomas V. O'Keefe, as prefect with Thomas Messick and Walter Law lor as Ici-low officers. In these two activities the Sophs have had the able support of the Freshmen even before the haters' emblems of servility, the luted caps and ties, had been hud aside.
In the varied other activities of the College, we find the Class well represented in the three modern language clubs, especially so in the sessions of the Spanish Academy and its successful labors for the completion of the unprecedented annual. Again in the establishment of the Chemistry Club, Francis P. Delaney was selected for oliiccrship, while orhers were designated to posts as representative committeemen.
Back in the held ol the nimrods and sharpshooters, we find Edward Flanagan gayly destroying targets at the head of a deadly Soph team which has earned quite a reputation in the intcrclass tourney and against the many rivals on the schedule. In the sonorous company of the basses and tenors of the Glee Club, we h ive James F. McGrath as soloist, along with other classmen of the gifted throats.
The journalists and aspiring litterateurs of the year are included in the ranks of the Raw, the foremost ol whom are Frank Bauer, Vladimii Svitak, James E. Clark, John F. Arens, Sylvester T. Cohane, and Michael J. Sheehan All arc in the editorial or spores departments of the college weekly, while having eyes peeled for possibles in Haywood Broun's column or the pages of MeGeehan, Williams, or Daniel. Clarke's sport cartoons have been of a special interest and amusement in his faithful caricatures of the grid and court heroes.
With the changes in the Fordham Monthly, the work of Edward H. Koch has come to the fore in his splendid art work of frontispiece design throughout the volumes.
With this rapid survey of the work of the Sophomore Class in all the activities, one can but get a brief glimpse of the members who arc helping to keep the standards of '33 living, and vet not forget the efforts of very many others not mentioned whose w ork in all fields has been untiring. All this has been done under the leadership of one of rhe most popular of presidents, James E. Clark together with the Vice-President, James J. Trcacy, whose efforts in the oratorical contest won him unstinted praise. The other officers include John Burke, Secretary, and William J. Mood , Treasurer.
In parting we wish to extend out sincere wishes for success to the outgoing Seniors, whose great memorial, the 1931 Maroon, has afforded an opportunity for making our Class the better known, and to Father Hogan, S.J.. who has been the inspiration of the whole book. To the incoming Seniors we wish success in the conclusion of then-courses and in their faint hopes of editing a better Maroon. And to the Freshmen, our sincere hopes for their continued success for we arc broad-minded Sophomores.

Howard A. Malloy Robert E. Delaney Joseph F. Tierney Paul D. Travers
r ate September found a straggling, awc-struck band of exceedingly self-conscious
' Freshmen gathered before the steps of the Auditorium. Thc huddled together like so many frightened sheep, under the fierce and appraising eyes of the Sophomores, their traditional rivals. Out of this confusion caused b the embarrassment and lack of acquaintance which all Freshmen feel on this occasion, the Reverend Father Deane soon brought order. The new classes were formed and '34 became officially a part of the University.
Later that day and for the few davs immcdiatciv succeeding, gatherings were held for the purpose of acquainting the Freshmen with the various activities of the University, athletic, literary, and social. Caps and ties were distributed, and the speech of the President of the Sophomores, though offered in a spirit of welcome and good-fellowship, was suspiciously received by the Freshmen. He explained that all the exercises of the initiation, as imposed by the members of the igilance Committee, were intended nJ for the benefit of the Freshmen and were meant only co weld them into the spirit of Fordham. Accordingly the next few weeks were filled with novcltv and amusements for the Uppcr-( lassmcn) while the Sophs put their red-capped charges through their paces. The campus resounded with inharmonious and ill-timed renditions of the pep songs and cheers.
HHThis soon led up to the traditional series of athletic contests which were to determine whether the Frosh could emancipate themselves from their bonds or not. The tug-of-war came tirst. This the Frosh lost in an exceedingly long drawn our battle after they had tied tile count at one all. The track meet was held next and a fast stepping Frosh track team raised the hopes of their classmates bv a victory over the Sophs This left the swimming meet ro decide the series. Alas the poor Frosh; they lost, but the defeat was not keenly felt for already Sophomore discipline was growing lax and Freshies were appearing about the campus sans cap and tic and going unmolested.
The advent of October and the footballscason brought itiiothc spotlight the achievements. of a Frosh football team whose record was no less brilliant than that of Ford-ham's famous varsity. They capped an undcfcarcd season bv defeating N. Y. U.’s yearlings to rbc tunc of 26co0 in a game played for the relief of the unemployed at the Yankee Stadium. The victory was none the less costly for it resulted in the breaking of a leg for Walter Uzdavinis, scar Frosh center, whom many excellent football critics expect to fill the shoes of the All-American Captain Siano. McDermott, a back, and Jim Doherty, end, revealed themselves as a forward-passing combination which will bear plentvof watching when they don varsity uniforms. Johnny Del Isola, line-hacking fullback par excellence, Paul Howell, guard, as well as Santarpioand Brennan should prove important cogs in Cavanaugh’s machine when they come of age.
Track has as vet brought no great distinction to the Frosh, but Jake Weber reports that a great number of Yearlings are working out daily in the Gym, and that he expects great things from them in the future. Jake also reports that tile Cross-Country squad is exceptionally large and abounding in fine marcn.il. Mcxr year should see it blossom forth with some noteworthv scores to sued the Ram's track glories.
In the realm of the wooden floor and bounding pigskin 34 also distinguished itself. The basketball team was a snappy, smooth working combination, which, however played in considerable hard luck. Their games with the Penn Frosh, C. C. N. Y. Jayvcc and the N Y. L Frosh were all lost after the victorx had really been won. Ed Kcllchcrhas much excellent marcn.il in rhe Frosh squad. It is fully as impressive in action as most of Fordham's Freshman Fives of past years. Andy Pavlicovic, who also featured himself in the football team's defeat of N. Y. U., and Billy Flemming, last year's Preparatory Captain, have proved a brilliant forward combination throughout the season. Gramala, a center built on the lines of Baker, should prove a valuable addition to Ed. Kellchcr's varsity squad. Danny Williams has also done some fine work at rhe pivot position. Pepper anil Spcckman, who plavcd on the left side of the court, have also done some fine work. White, l.obo, Walsh, Dranginis. Lvnch, and Mannix have given the spectators many thrills while filling in for the tirst string hoys.
The Frosh have also distinguished themselves upon the Rostrum, the gifred oratory of Messrs. Safarik,Scott,and Appert having carried the day in a brilliant victory over
33 SOF foh.dhN. V. I We arc given to understand that these gentlemen and many others make things interesting by their fierce verbal battles in the weekly meetings of the Debating Society.
Many Frosh names arc also appearing in literary circles, with each succeeding issue of the Raw and the Fordham Monthly. The critical gift of Lawrence Leavey should prove an invaluable addition to the Monthly. The graduation of the Class of '30 left many vacancies on the Raw's staff and so we find many Freshmen busy hunting scoops for that weekly publication.
The orchestra and the band also report large numbers of '34 men, active in their ranks. Several more who were fortunate in the possession of good singing voices have been accepted in the Glee Club.
Mid-Year examinations caused some few of the Frosh to drop by the wayside, but the new February class will more than make up the deficit. February saw the addition of some eighty Freshmen to the already large class.
Fordham tennis fans who have been bemoaning the loss of Gene McCauliff will be extremely glad to hear that E. Ramev Donovan, runner-up this year in the National Junior Tennis Championships and who during his days at Fordham Preparatory was regarded as the country’s outstanding junior player, has entered Fordham with the February group. There is good news also for the golfing enthusiasts for Bernard, "Barney,” l.anigan, red-headed State Golfing Champ, who last year led the Preparatory team to victory over the varsity, is a member of the first division of the Freshman Class.
The newlv organized French paper owes much of its success to its Freshman Business Manager, Finbarr Sullivan, and his staff.
The Frosh have been extremely active at Sodality and in the other religious activities of the college. We also hear good reports of them from the French, Spanish, and Italian Clubs.
The actors arc at present busily preparing the parts which the playwrights have written for them, and on the night of the one-act plays they will undoubtedly shine forth in all the splendor of their buskins and trappings.
The passage of the year will soon make this year's Freshman Class a memory. But time can not dim the lustre of the fame they have brought to Fordham.

The Parthenian Sodality of Fordliam is venerable with years and traditions. It was established in 1837 in Kentucky and when the Jesuit fathers came to Fordham in 1841,the Sodality was transferred hither, and has continued its existence without interruption up to the present day. A facsimile of the record of the first meeting held in old St. Mary's College in Kentucky on the 2nd of February, 1837, now adorns the present Chapel.
The roll-book on which the first name was written bears a list of members, complete up to our times and the books of "minutes" contain an unbroken record of the activities of the Sodality from the time of its inception till now.
It is almost incredible what results have sprung from this pious and praiseworthy institution in the exercise of its endeavors in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Oncof the many old customswhich still abound at Fordham is thatof holding May Devotions ar rhe foot of rhe statue of Our Lady. Youthful voices arc raised in a h vmn after which some member of the Sodality addresses his fellow students on one of Our Lady's countless virtues. Thus it is not without a certain degree of pride that we point to the magnificent body of Sodalists, all of them resident students, that we have here at Fordham, and in particular to the gatherings in the Sodality's own Chapel where Mass is celebrated and the Office is dedicated to our Blessed Mother.
The Solemn Reception closes the scholastic year of activity and we hope that this splendid object of devotion will continue to prosper in the furtherance of its ideals as the oldest and most honored organization here at College.

The Harvester Club is Ford ham's contribution to the mission field participated in by Catholic Colleges and as such has established an enviable record.
This year the members visited eighteen parochial schools addressing some 6500 pupils on the important problems of home and foreign missions. Under the able guidance of its new moderator, Father Rcglan, the club's activities have included mam and varied undertakings heretofore not entered upon be the Harvester Club.
During Fcrdham's eventful football season, acting upon the suggestion of its President, Angelo Badolato, the members provided a plav-by-pla description in the Recreation Room of the Fordham-Dctroit game direct from Detroit Flic entire proceeds were donated to the foreign missions. Also, for the first time, the society assumed the mice box collection and the distribution ol its proceeds to the needy mission colonics. Literature of educational worth was gathered by the members from different schools for the Jesuit Missions, as were textbooks collected from students of the University.
A new constitution was adopted with the club's membership one of the largest in its historv. The newly approved insignia is now the coveted possession of the senior members.

Moderator President I'ice- President Secretary Master of Ceremonies Assistant Mast a of Ceremonies
St. John Bcrchman's Sodality, by no means the oldest or most heralded of the campus organizations, has come to occupy a new place of favor at Fordham.
The past year has marked a lively enthusiasm in this Sodality. Its numbers have increased beyond all precedent, and it has manifested a real zeal in the discharge of its charitable duties, a success which is especially gratifying to our new Moderator, Father Gampp. The roster of this organization includes only Campus students and, although the membership is voluntary, the response has been truly worthy of praise.
Its members assist at Mass and other public religious functions held throughout the scholastic year.
For these men there is no material reward, but only the contentment of dispensing their works with devotion and sacrifice. A desire to follow the divine model of charity is their only motive. It prompts them to overcome whatever human weaknesses they might have, to arise early in the morning, oftentimes at daybreak, to hurry out to the various chapels on the campus to assist at Mass. They accept it as a privilege and duty to serve as acolytes during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
Especially noteworthy is the fact, that at the May Mass this year, three former members of the Sodality, now within the folds of the priesthood, officiated at the Ceremony, with a student acting as Master of Ceremonies.
So much for (his year’s success. To (hose who have thus far so successfully advanced the work of the Sodality, wc offer our hearty and sincere congratulations; to those upon whose shoulders the future destiny of the organization will rest, we extend our best wishes together with the inspiring message, ‘Carry On.”

This Benevolent Society, whose principal doctrine is to evince an abounding charity and unlimited good will, has witnessed the most successful year since its inception at Pordham University. The members have with indefatigable zeal endeavored to fulfill the numerous dunes chat their membership necessarily incurred, duties which required extreme sacrifice because ol the limited number of members.
The altruism manifested by these men, who pledged their services to so worthy a cause, is certainly here deserving of mention. The judicious methods of teaching Catechism at the House of Refuge on Randall’s Island effected much good. The assignment of its members to Fordham Hospital and similar institutions often terminated in the conversion of mental and physical derelicts to a sanguine disposition, that some relief might be effected in their particular cases.
The impoverished were visited, and clothing and food were distributed to them; words of consolation alwavs accompanied these needed contributions and were frequently followed In renewed efforts on the part of the destitute to reinstate himself as a self-supporting individual.
Much praise is due the Moderator, the Rev. J. Joseph Lynch, S.J , whose cllicieiit and zealous work- to effect the charitable end of the Socictv has inspired its members U) greater efforts in the relief of the sick and poverty-stricken.

Upon che inception of the new year of activities the Sodality has inaugurated new branches of inilucncc. all of which have taken firm hold among the undergraduates, and are well on rheir way to success.
Chief among the plans which have been put into effect is the arduous development of active missionary work among the sodalists themselves. This work, which is being carried on in the downtown portions of the city on Cherry Street, has brought the enthusiasm and the sacrifice of the members to the test and the results have been more than satisfactory. This branch consists of general religious and catechetical work among the boys of the East Side together with a supervision of their endeavors.
Then, too. the regular work of the Sodality has been kept up splendidly as is evidenced by the number present at the weekly meetings,and the donations to thejesuit Missions in the Philippines. The practice of student volunteers for short weekly discourses has been carried on, while the members have been accorded visits from priests who have been to the great mission fields in the Far East.
All of the present success has been due mainly to the untiring work and whole hearted leadership of Father Cox, S.J., who has taken up the position of moderator this year.

The present year has witnessed the coming of our new moderator. Father Cunningham, after having served faithfully and well in this capacity lor many vears, has been called to other duties, and Father Lynch has succeeded him. The new Moderator has zealously undertaken the work of the Sodality and the results of his labors have been extremely gratifying.
The Sodality has widened the scope of its activity during the present year, so as to exert a more powerful influence on present conditions and to co-operate in the movement for Catholic lay action and leadership. Groups were formed, each with a different pui|x sc m view, and every sodalist was urged to identify himself with one of these activities. One group engaged in welfare work, another m visiting the sick and other charitable works, and another in lecturing before Catholic audiences.
Another group was formed to encourage the practice of daily and weekly Communions and so to foster an increase in devotion and the greater spiritual development of the members. A crowded chapel each week gave testimony to the devotion of Ford ham men tor the Mother of God. The prayers and litany were recited fervently at each meeting, and a speech by one of the members on a topic of current religious in terest completed the order of devotions. The Sodality has sought in every way to exert an influence for good through its members. We arc confident that the Sodality in its new strength and vigor cannot fail to instil a great devotion for Marv in the hearts of its members and to become a powerful factor in thcspirirual life of thecollege.

The Council of Debate has passed another mile-stone in its glorious and useful history. After scvcniv-scvcn years, the venerable society still ranks as one of the most popular and active organizations on the campus.
The present year witnessed a change in moderators when Mr. Kohlbccker took over the direction of theCouncil, replacing Father Walsh The retiring Moderator had served with distinction for two years. The growth of the activities of the Lecture Groups as well as the formidable list of intercollegiate triumphs arc due in a large part to his efforts. The Council is indeed fortunate in securing so able a successor in Mr. Kohl-bccker
The officers for the present year arc as follows: President. Mr John Lane; Vice-President, Mr. William Ciolko; Vice-President Emeritus, Mr. Thomas Ronan, Secretary, Mr. Thomas Hurley; Treasurer. Mr. John Hayes, Censor, Mr. Anthony Porcelli; Historian, Mr. Thcmas McGraw.The Council has continued its remarkable growth, and over sixty men have been enrolled as members. An ambitious intercollegiate schedule has been arranged, and though the complete list is not available, it is certain that the Council will engage in at least fifteen debates with other institutions.
This year has marked an almost phenomenal growrb in the activities of the Lecture Groups. It is the obicct of the Council to train its members to speak in public, and to develop Catholic leaders. The Lecture Groups have proven themselves the finest and best method of realizing this object. Consequently, members of the Council have spoken before Holy Name Societies and other religious organizations in and about

The Lecture Groups have proven themselves cxrrcmclv popular and the Council has won the praise and recognition of many prominent men through this medium.
The debating season opened with the Varsity meeting New York University in the college auditorium. The Council was represented by William Ciolko, '31, Bernard O'Connell, '32, and John Lane.

For six years now, an institution of Ford ham has been functioning in a quiet bur effective way. It is appropriately called the 'Quill Club.''
On man a peaceful Friday afternoon the members of this organization have come together to dissect and criticize their brain-children, in the form of short stories. This eminently sane method of developing latent ability and of maintaining a high literary standard has been the practice of the Club from its very inception. It is hardly necessary to remark that there is no better method of stimulating interest in literature than that of helpful criticism of original composition. It gives the beginner, in his writings, confidence and an ideal to strive for; it maintains for the more experienced one, a strict standard and a convenient check on anv lapses of technique which inav creep into his work. Many a fine story printed in the Monthly owes its origin and excellence to the efforts of the Quill Club.
The importance of such an institution cannot be overemphasized and tt deserves the commendation and praise of all who have the interests of Ford ham at heart. Is it not a worthy thing to foster the priceless spirit of true literature and In so doing build a monument to Ford ham and all it stands for? This is the true aim of the Quill Club and n is incumbent upon its members to maintain, as thev have, a loftiness of spirit and independence of mind which is the mainstay of the writers of true literature.»»» MAR.OOF
By the time the men on the Guild have finished their Freshman year their work has acquired a style and polish which fits it to grace the pages of the Monthly.
A word of praise for the Moderator is hut just Through his patient efforts, the members of the Guild arc developing a capacity to express their ideas clearly and concisely—a faculty that is so sadly lacking in many.

Many a well written essay and sparkling short story published in the Monthly can he traced to the Freshman Short Story Guild. Flcrc it was, under the patient guidance of Father Taaffc, the Moderator of the Guild, that the latent ability ol ambitious Freshmen was carefully nurtured and developed.
The procedure of the Guild is similar to that of the Quill Club; short stories arc assigned to several members of the organization and arc read at the next meeting. The stories arc then criticized by the members and various corrections are suggested that would improve them. In this way the writer is immeasurably benefited. If his story is well done he receives just praise, if it is poorly done, the helpful criticism of the members and the Moderator will prevent him from committing the same errors in his next effort. Following this method the Guild could not be but successful in its efforts to turn out men who arc really capable of writing prose as it should be written.

This article is confined to the numerous and noteworthy activities of Fordham s Dramatic Organization, The Mimes and Mummers.
An adequate resume of the various and innumerable artistic achievements of these sons of "Thespis’ is an evident impossibility. We are primarily concerned with the actor members of the Class of 31, so that this account of the progress of Fordham's dramatic activity will resolve itself into a description of their work.
It is indeed a pleasant retrospect as we survey the dramatic presentations during our Undergraduate days. In the year 1927, the histrionic capabilities of our classmates were first evidenced Bulwer I vrton’s poetic drama, "Richelieu" was selected bv the Moderator. Mr. Glenn Walsh, S.J., as the subject lor their endeavors. Under his able guidance in this presentation, two members of the Freshman Class, Joseph O’Donahue and Bernard McKernan successfully entered upon their college dramatic career. The former will be remembered for his superb portrayal of the dutiful "Julie”, the latter for Ins splendid characterization of "Francis."
The Freshman One-Act Play contest followed this arsitv presentation in the spring of 1928. Each member of the Freshman Class hojx;fully submitted a play to the governing board for their examination. The best plays submitted were then selected for
352actual presentation. "The Game of Chess,” a playlet written by Jerome Amantc was designated the prize winner. Vincent Carlin who was later to distinguish himself as Fordham's foremost actor, was adjudged the best actor. "Nobody’s Business Man” written by Fred J. Heinbuch, was awarded second prize. Thomas Waldic received second honors for acting in his characterization in "The Departure,” John Lanes contribution to the contest.
The arrival of our new Moderator, Mr. William J. Kelly, S. J., was simultaneous with the advent of Sophomore year. It was after careful deliberation, that it was decided to present the well-famed "Othello” bv Shakespeare, as our first Varsity effort. When the time came for the casting of the various characters in this production, the Auditorium was thronged with enthusiastic and accomplished aspirants. But under the critical eves of Mr. John Taylor Breen, J. Gerard Cregan and the Moderator Mr. Kelly, only two members of the Class of '31 survived. Vincent Carlin and William O'Donnell manifested exceptional artistic ability in the parts of ”Rodruigo"and the Duke of Venice, respectively.
Due to the inexperience of the prospective authors and playwrights, the year 1929 passed without any of our members entered in Varsity competition.
The fall of 1929 witnessed the presentation of another of William Shakespeare's famous plays, namely "The Merchant of Venice.” Once again the versatile ability of Vincent Carlin sprung to the fore. Mis portrayal of Lorenzo received the approval and praise of the audience. Thomas Waldic deservedly won the applause of his observers in the part of "Ncrissa." William Ciolko, assigned to play the part of Launcclor, succeeded admirably in the portrayal of a difficult role.
The spring of the year 1930 evidenced the submission of innumerable playlets by the members of our Junior Class. Many strove diligently to have a play accepted for final presentation Matthew Correa alone succeeded in upholding the laurels of his class. His facile pen produced the playlet "Loyalty,” whose entire cast was constituted of members cf his class.
333Our Senior year arrived.The Senior members of the Mimes and Mummers anxiously a waited the decision of rhe Board of Directors, as to the particular selection they would make concerning the Varsity presentation. Sir Arthur Wing Pinero's drama
"Trelawny of the Wells" was to be produced. It was the graduating year tor many, and they were desirous of making their bid for an active participation in this, their last Varsity endeavor. From this medley of contestants Vincent Carlin and Thomas Waldic emerged successful.The former in his presentation of Ferdinand Gadd was the recipient of the plaudits of his admirers, the latter played the part of Rose Trclawnv to perfection. William Ciolko played the part of Augustus Galpuys. a bosom friend of Ferdinand Gadd. Together with Mr. Carlin, they furnished a good part of the humorous setting, which genuinely amused the audience.
In the Varsity One-Act Plays, Joseph O'Donahuc, Philip Ryan, Vincent Carlin, Thomas Waldic, and Bernard McKernan, all members of the Class of '31. participated in the various plays presented. Vincent Cai I in received the first laurels for acting.
The Mimes and Mummers is indebted to the stage crew for their unceasing efforts in producing the scenery, without which the success of the organization would have bet‘ii impossible. To Mr. William J. Kelly.$.)., Mr. James T Breen, Mi | Gerard Cregan. who unselfishly gave their time and ability and under whose dramatic guidance the society has successfully progressed, we are sinccrel grateful.

The Fcrdham Monthly, one of the oldest and most influential of our college organizations, lias concluded with us, its forty-ninth year of service. Since its birth, this serious voice of the student body has been interpreting the social and intellectual vicissitudes of succeeding generations. With the evolution of style in writing from those early days until the present, the Monthly has kept apace—not remaining tied to the post of tradition but adopting the changing moods best suited to reflect the feelings of the times. Nor yet has it been flying before the wind; it has remained anchored by a due regard for solid principles and high ideals. It is our fond pleasure to believe that, in this,our year,The Fordham Monthly has continued along its course in the same glorious fashion which has marked its path during all its life.

355The personnel for the year 1930-31 was for the mosr part made up of Seniors, and it was upon them that most of the work necessarily fell. Three, Peter Cusack. William H. Hines and Edward A Silliere. devoted most of their time to writing verse. Their efforts produced many hits of excellent poetry. They carried on the great tradition of the Monthly. As for the prose William C. Cusack and Nelson J Edge have as capably performed. The former was the author of many delectable short stories anil light essays, and the latter wrote in a more serious and erudite vein
The financial department of the magazine was for the second successive year, carried on by Timothy A. O'Leary, whose energetic management was responsible for its success along this line. The Humor section, the Antidote, was handled bv William O McCuc, whose wit is equallv appreciated by both the readers of the Monthly and the Ram. The "Theatre" was conducted by Peter J. Cusack, who reviewed current plays and operettas.
At the beginning of the year a general revision ol the form of the magazine was put into effect. A new cover, featuring rhe rower of rhe Church, and a Gothic type of lettering, was designed by the Art Editor. Edward H. Koch. '33. who also drew the frontispiece for each number. The changes improved the appearance of the magazine to a marked degree.
Richard J. Burke, 32, was the Editor-in-Chief. His timely cssavs have been commended for their appropriateness.
The members of the staff will best remember the Monthly as the medium of forming manv valuable friendships. The inspiration, the mental stimulus, and the helpful criticism of the Moderator will always remain as part of their cherished memories. The most noteworthy work of the Monthly has been to encourage the beginner. Many a hesitant and inexperienced vuung author has received just that amount of assistance to further him in the art of writing.

357Wi; offer a toast to the Ram. We offer a roasr to the members of the staff for the unselfish devotion they have shown in chat most difficult of tasks, the successful editing of a university newspaper.
Throughout the year, this worthy activity goes smoothly onward, with the speed and precision of a mighty machine, never faltering, ever maintaining the high standard traditional to the Ram. But it seems chat the Raw of the past year, with novel and interesting features, with more and finer news, has surpassed all previous marks. And this is our Ram, the Ram of the Class of '31. So there is a thrill of pride in our voices as we introduce the men, who, inspired by the vigor and forccfulncss of the new Moderator, Mr. Harold J. McAuley, 29, have made possible this, the finest Ram on record.
As Editor-in-Chief, John Lane proved a fine choice. Under his efficient leadership the paper prospered steadily. His editorials, crisp and clever, his fine business ability, and his general sense of fitness marked his occupancy of this important post.
In the capacity of News Editor. Ralph J. Low found an opportunity to give full expression to his efficiency and enterprise. In addition to the ordinary duties of his post as News Editor. Mr. Low conducted "The Interview," the newly inaugurated column of the Ram. Faithful and competent,he handled both positions admirably.
Edward P Ricca displayed really remarkable acumen in his office of Managing Editor. The excellence of the make-up, the fine general newspaper style of the Ram, which have attracted so much praise in college circles, is directly attributable to Mr. Ricca.
John S. Field, as Sports Editor, easily upheld the high standard of the "Looking Them Over" column. His sagacious comments, his scintillating chatter, have made for "Scoop,’ a reputation which will long be remembered in the annals of rhe Ram
To William O. McCuc we arc indebted for another year of that delightful humor in rhe column "Ramblmgs." This was Mr. McCuc’s second year ar rhis post and his wir has increased with age Always effective, this year his column was at its best.
Nothing bur the finest can be sa id of Gerald B MacKinney. As( ircularion Manage! lie performed his many and exacting duties faultlessly. He deserves cvcrv commendation for his untiring devotion to his work.
Angelo D. Badolato was Reference Editor, with the important dutv of keeping a record of the activities of everyone and everything. The ingenious filing system which he arranged will be of inestimable value to the Raw for many years to come.
John F. McManmon, Philip Ryan, and Edward McGrath were the special correspondents of the Ram. They excelled in their department. Mr. McManmon and Mt Ryan handled the news "scoops, each with his own individual style, but both had the sure touch of newspaper men. Mr. McGrath, the sports sj :cialist, could treat his stories with that deftness so necessary in lus work.
Again we offer a toast to these men who have conducted an organization so valuable to Fordham. And it is but just, that these men receive recognition. Hidden in their office, they have labored diligentk for four years, hiding their own light under a bushel, but making manifest throughout the years the glorv and achievement of all iliai is Ford ha Ill's.

It is with an almost unexpected drop of the curtain that the Glee Club members of the Class of 31 march off their stage. Their years of service to the Club has resulted in the attainment of success hardly ever imagined heretofore. As a whole, the members of the Glee Club arc to be congratulated for the honors they have bestowed upon themselves and on Fordham.
As usual, the membership roll of the Club is always hard hit by graduation,and this year saw fifteen depart. Nevertheless, new voices were selected and after constant training, that degree of perfection was reached which was a deciding factor in the climaxing of so successful a season.
Much praise, credit, and thanks is due the Reverend Elwood F. McFarland, S.J .who succeeded the Reverend Theodore T. Farlcv, S.J. as Moderator. Through his efforts, the Club's activities have been greatly aided. Also, to the genius of Dr. Frederic Joslyn. the Musical Director, too much acclaim cannot be given.
The fame and glory of the Glee Club has been achieved under his artistic guidance. It was through his efficient leadership that the many audiences have been able to enjoy the true melodious effects of a skilfully conducted male chorus.

It likewise has the most comprehensive of the extra-curricula activity charters, namely, to exercise the members in the conversational use of French and to bring them together for social and cultural purposes. To this end, the program has already included debates in French, addresses on French topics by members and prominent non-members, theatre parties to French plays, numerous luncheons, and an annual banquet on board a French liner. Their third claim to distinction is "Lc Rayon du Ccrcle Francais," the Club’s yearbook. This pictorial and literary chronical of the year’s activity, entirely in French of course, is believed to be unique in college circles. Nielson J.

Ii. Circolo di Cultura luluiu" is a comparatively newly organized modern language club in Fordham. After receiving the sanction of the Dean two years ago, Joseph D. Gatti called to order the first meeting of the Italian Club. The wonderful attendance which was incurred at the initial meeting has continued each week. The Rev. Demetrius Zema, S J . willingly took over the reins as Moderator of the organiza tion, though he was very heavily occupied with other duties.
This circle was greatly needed at Fordham in order that the students having a small knowledge of Italian culture, could become more familiar with the numerous and eminent Italian writers and their works. In a few words, the purpose of the organization is to foster a genuine interest in the wide-spread and mind-nurturing Italian culture. Its secondary purpose is to enable its members to acquire fluency in the conversational use of Italian. Meetings arc held weekly at which time a member reads a paper or talks on some phase of Italian culture which he has previously prepared. The members then question the speaker concerning some phase of his topic. All this is done in Italian. The president often postpones the weekly talk and has some prominent nonmember address the Club.
During the vear there arc given, under the supervision of the organization, several social affairs, ar which it is customary to have some well-known speaker preside.

The Mendel Club was founded ten years ago at the instigation of the Rev. G A.
Caballero, S.J., that those students who were interested in biological research might devote themselves to special phases of that science covered only cursorily in the classroom. In this way an ambitious student might acquire a thorough knowledge of biology In cases where student experimentation would prove impractical and inadvisable, the members of the organization have as their source of knowledge the librarv of the Biology Department. As this is augmented from time to time by the latest book on the subject, it is found of much use to the members.
During the course of the year, papers arc assigned to the members, based on interesting biological questions. These arc read at the meetings and the writers arc questioned. This procedure is varied by having some prominent lecturer in biology address the Club.
Recently the C lub inaugurated a monthly paper, published under the direction of Mr. James Halloran, 33- Comprised of articles written on biological topics by the members of the Club, it is a noteworthy addition to the publications of the University Too much credit cannot be given to the Moderator of the Club, the Rev. Joseph Assmuth, S.J . a noted and prominent member of numerous scientific associations. Under his guidance the Club has attained a prominent position in extra-curricula activities.

Continuing rhc success of the previous year when :t was initiated and firmly established under the excellent guidance of Howard A Seitz, '30, the Brooklvn-Long Island Club enjoyed a season of happy development. Its membership was increased beyond expectation, and the eagerness which all showed in the resumption of activities last fall, offers proof of the hcalthv spirit of the Club.
The peak of the University’s social season, as is acknowledged by all, was reached on January thirtieth, when the club held its second annual dance in the magnificent grand ballroom of the Hotel St George. In this gorgeous setting, in harmony with the delightful music by Bert Lown and H.s Victor Recording Artists, a host of Fordham men and their friends rallied in joyful celebration. The smooth cfiicicncv of the Committee and i tsChairman, Gerard J. Griffin, '31, wasevident in every detail of theevent.
When the organization was begun, its purpose was to fosrer a closer bond of friendship between the graduates and undergraduates who live in Brooklyn and Long Island. No one will deny that it has fully attained that purpose. But it has gone further than that; By virtue of the success in its proper activities, it has been able to advance a work that is of primary interest to the whole University, namely, the assistance of those zealous apostles of our faith who labor in far off lands.

The Club was founded by our present registrar, Mr. Thomas Reilly. Much of the success it has attained must be credited to us Moderator, the Rev. Dean.
Two formal dances were held this year, one at Christmas in Bridgeport, and one at Easter in Watcrbury. Both were unprecedented social and financial successes
In forming a closer bond of friendship between students from Connecticut and bringing the Alumni of that State into closer contact with the student bod , the Club performs an important function in the life of the University and lor that alone is worthy of praise.
Similar organizations have been founded at Fordham, but the honor of having been the first falls to the lot of the Connecticut Club; they have paved rhe wav lor main-such organizations. It is the influence of such clubs that maintains the happy social relations that are so much a part of college life.

A mighty army converges on Ford ham bv way of (he Hudson Tunnels and the Forty-second Street Ferry; arrived, the members seem to lose a bit of their enthusiasm, and bid each other cynical good-byes as they separate for their respective classes. But at high noon there is a revival of the martial spirit. With a whoop and erv they make for the Biology Building and a professor and several innocent bystanders who have been trampled underfoot, pick themselves up to find that they had gotten in the path of the Jersey Club on irs way to meeting.
Inside,President Tom Hurley is rapping for order. Ray Wall, being Vice-President, is the first to subside. Jim McCarthy is elected Chairman of the dance and the election is contested so the matter is deferred, while the rival steam rollers gather more votes. Presentlv Jim Lillis, subbing for Nelson Edge, writes into the minutes the confirmation of “Mac’s" election The Newark Elk's Club Ballroom is reserved for the Fifth of December and Al Coyle begins salting away the money for the patronage and the bids And then, the dance the first social on Ford ham's calendar, and a brilliant success in every respect! Congratulations to the Committee and the Club!
The officers and the members of the Club deserve much credit for the enthusiasm and interest they have shown for the advancement of the organization. Year bv year the Jersey Club's prestige has grown.

The Pennsylvania Club

Four years ago. a small group of sturdy Pennsylvanians organized a club in order to further the spirit of friendship and loyalty to Fordham during their student days, and to bind themselves in after years bv means of their pleasant associations, into a loval Alumni.
That they have been eminently successful is evidenced not only by the increased number of members, but by the exceptional!) colorful dances that have been held in their name. With characteristic individuality, the Club this year conducted a highly successful affair at the Rcdington Hotel in Wilkesbarre. As well played as the music was, the beautiful and tasteful decorations of the hotel added that final touch which has left for all who attended, another beautiful and pleasant memory. In a great measure the palm for this social triumph must be awarded to Mr. Thomas Brennan, '31, in whose capable hands the management of the affair was placed. Sound judgment was displayed in every detail.
Wc cannot fail to mention the friendly and helpful advice which their Moderator, the Rev. Dean, so capably gave. The Pennsylvania Club is grateful for his untiring efforts in their behalf.
From its humble beginning the Club has progressed until now it is on a par with any of Fordham's institutions in upholding her principles and furthering the interests of her good name.

For many years the desire to band together has been suppressed in the hearts of all Upstarcrs. It remained for one of us who came from a small town near the State Capitol co take the initiative. To Mr. James S. Milica is attributed the honor of having founded the Upstate Club of New York in September, 1930. Ford ham is indeed grateful to Mr. Millea for his untiring efforts in organizing this new club.
Under the efficient guidance of its Moderator, the Rev. Dean, it has become one of the foremost of rhe State Clubs. At present it numbers fifty members on its roster. Its chief aim is to foster a spirit of friendship among Upstate students and to promote Ford-ham’s interests hi the upper regions of the Empire State. 'I lie first Christmas Dance of the Club was an overwhelming success, socially and financially. The affair, which at first caused a great deal of apprehension as to its outcome, was skillfully brought to a dazzling conclusion by the executive ability of Mr. Milica, who was Chairman of the dance.
Already its influence is being felt, not only on the campus, but in the upper regions of the State. All too soon the Upstaters of '31 relinquish their leadership; upon their successors falls the weighty burden of guiding to maturity the work which thcc were privileged to begin. They have shown their ability, and the present enthusiasm of its members augurs well for the future.

Philip E. Ryan, '31 William F. Kuhn, '32 Nelson J. Edge. 31
This club is unique on ilie campus in that it has as eligible members only the thirty students in the advanced R. O. T. C. course and it is a striking proof of its popularity that they have all availed themselves of the opportunity. The chief activity of the club for the past few years has been the trip to the United States Military Academy at West Point Colonel Jay P. Hopkins and Captain Napoleon Boudreau have accompanied the men on the rrips and Through their connections at the Academy secured for them even more courtesies than would have been theirs as R O. T. C. cadets. For instance the Ford ham students dined at the officers mess and were admitted as observers to several of the regular classes. And finally, of course, came the superb "parade," as the Pointers call it and which is the ambition of every Fordham cadet to initiate in their own demonstration drill.
Another event in the club's year is the banquet tendered to the senior members bv the Reserve Officers Association of Manhattan. The Seniors about to receive their commissions and eligible for membership in a Coast Artillery regiment, are the guests of such regiments in and about New York. Here they meet the officers of these regiments and perhaps decide to join one outfit or the other, which is frankly the purpose of the dinner These affiliations as well as the fact that alumni are considered tctive members, tend to keep the club united even after graduation.

It is generally believed that the appeal of a football game lies not so much in the game itself but in the colorful spectacle that is built around the game, and the organization of any college that lends a great deal of this color, is the band. This year the best band in Fordham’s history crossed batons with the bauds from N. Y. U., Boston College. and Buckncll, and emerged second to none It proved itself to be one o( the best in the Last, from a musical standpoint, and in matters of marching and dress it certainly was the most collegiate band to be seen anywhere. We can all vividly recall the trim movements of the white-clad legs marching as one into various formations, and the brilliant maroon sport coats giving a real warmth and cheer to the chill grey of a November afternoon.
The Senior Class was well represented in the band Zilg. Porcelli, St.John. Pisani. Dursi, Clear, Gatti, Waldie, Berger, Sillierc, and a host of other Seniors sounded tubas and clashed cymbals in a manner worthy of mention.
This year’s band has been a great one but it cannot become a stagnant organization. Everyone is looking forward to the next one as a better band in both a musical and a military way.

Scoring eleven touchdowns and adding seven additional points, the varsity bewildered their Southern guests with the might and variety of their attack. When the bell saved the guests, the Maroon had gathered 73 points while holding the opposition scoreless.
The Baltimore backs found the Maroon line impenetrable throughout the afternoon. Neither through rhe line nor through the air could they avail and did not succeed in gaining a single first down. During their drives rhe Maroon ball-carriers made a total of 23 first downs and were never obliged to kick.

The Fordham Football Eleven became one of the high scoring gridiron machines of the country after the second game of the season. In this game at the new Fordham Field the Maroon scored a 71-0 victory over the gridstcrs from the University of Buffalo. With the record of the previous season carried over, the game marked the eleventh consecutive contest for the Maroon without the nasty odor of defeat.
As was the case with the Baltimore team, the Buffalo outfit was no match for the gridiron giants of the Maroon ream. With Murphy and Janis leading the backiicld and Captain Siano and Pete Wisniewski inspiring the line, the Maroon rode over the upstaters to score eleven touchdowns In the third quarter, the Maroon attack did the most damage. Leading ar the half by 33-0, the Maroon opened a withering onslaught with Janis, Murphy and Piecu-levvicz running wild behind perfect interference from their mates.

The victory came in the lasc quarter, when the Maroon, unable to gain further through the line, elected to try for the field goal and was successful Frank Bartos. standing on the 16-yard line, sent a perfect drop-kick through the uprights to end what seemed like an inevitable tie game.
The game was a gem of defensive play. The two lines were evenly matched and stopped the opposing backs in their tracks throughout the afternoon. But it was the Maroon line that stood the rough going the longer In rhe last quarter, Johnny Jams crashed the Eagle line for the gains which put Bartos in position to make his sensational score.
In this game the Maroon pun ring had its first test of the season, with Bartos and Tracey performing nobly.

Without the services of Jim Murphy, who was injured in the N.Y. U. game, the FordhamEleven defeated the Mountaineers from West Virginia University hv the score of 18-2. By virtue of a safety in the last quarter, the West Virginians had the distinction of being the first team to score on Fordham up to that point of the season.
Johmn Jams proved a capable substitute for Murphy. With the aid of the fast charging Maroon line he was by far the best back on the field that day. scoring two of the Maroon touchdowns and aiding greatly in the attaining of the other one bv McMahon.
The Fordham Line met a stubborn foe in Johnny Doyle. He gained repeatedly in midfield but under the shadows of the goal his charges were unavailing against the big Maroon guards and tackles who smothered his every attempt within the 20-yard line.
The Mountaineers safety came when Walter Tracey attempted to punt from behind his own goal and was smothered.
wThe Fordhani Football team won its seventh straight game when it defeated the Titans of Detroit University at Detroit by the score of 13 7. The Maroon was forced to come from behind to attain the victory,for, as the last quarter opened, the Eastern team was on the short end of the score which was 7-0. The Detroit Eleven scored early in the game on an intercepted pass which was good for an 80-yard run and a touchdown.
Not many minutes passed in the final quarter before Johnny Janis was away for the first Maroon score of the afternoon. But even then victory' seemed beyond the Maroon's grasp when Wisniewski missed the try for the extra point
With the score 7-6, and rhe minutes flying by, the Maroon began to light hard.
Down the field they went, the backs gaining on every play behind an aggressive line. Finally, Jack Fisher dropped back and hurled a perfect pass to Janis, who ran the distance to the goal-line.

Fordhani met defeat for the first time in two seasons when they fell before a last quarter rally by-St. Mary’s College of California, losing the game by the score of 20-12. The Maroon gained the lead in the first half on touchdowns by Janis and Murphy, but in the last half, the Fordham line, weakened by the hard games just gone by, could not hold the plunging Angel Brovelli.
Going into the last half, the victory seemed almost certain for Fordham. The Maroon Eleven outplayed the Gaels during the first half and it appeared that the final score would be substantially in theirfavor. Even when the Westerners had scored one touchdown and again another, making the score 14-12, the picture did not look so black for an Eastern victory.
With five minutes to go. Fordham had the ball and they were advancingit steadily toward the goal. Then came the forward pass, interception, and the game was wen by the Gaels of St. Mary's.
The Ford ham varsity baseball team enjoyed a successful season during the spring of 1930. Engaging in a total of twenty-one games, the Varsity Nine by hard hitting and splendid pitching gained the laurels in thirteen ol these engagements.
The efforts of the Maroon Nine to defeat her traditional baseball rivals. Holy Cross, boston College, and New York University were in parr successful. In the two games with Holy Cross the Maroon did not fare well at all. dropping the first game played on Fordham Field, 7-4. and returning from the annual spring trip to Worcester on the bad end of the 18-6 score With the Metropolitan rival, the Maroon divided the honors in the two game series. The Fordham invasion of Boston was most successful, resulting in a double victory for Fordham.
The season opened on April 8, when the Maroon Nine left New York for the South on a four-day trip. The first team to lx: met on the trip was the team of Princeton University, which resulted in the initial victory of the campaign. The day was bitterly cold and during three of the late innings the diamond was sprinkled with a light snowfall. The cold and the snow were not at all conducive to good pitching and the contest became a free hitting affair with the honors for clouting going to the Maroon men. Princeton used three pitchers in an effort to check Captain Laborne. Maynard, and Aube who led the attack for the winners. Coach Coffey started Aube but he could not find the plate owing to the chill in the air and was retired in favor of Neil Andrews in the sixth inning.
On the day after the Princeton victory the team visited Philadelphia and was repulsed by a strong illanova team. Neil Andrews was on the mound for Fordham but

due ro the fact that the Maroon sluggers were tamed by Hillcn, the New Yorkers went on to Temple on the shorr end of the score.
At Temple the Fordham Nine joined with the local team to dedicate the Owl's new baseball diamond. Following their participation in the ceremonies, the Rams proceeded to outplay their hosts, and behind the line hurling of Andrews won the game, 3-2. Sabatini, Aube, and Maynard led the Maroon batters, each accounting for two hits.
Leaving Philadelphia for Baltimore, the Varsity met the Naval Academy on the next day. The Maroon led the Navy in the number of hits but they could not bunch them and were only able to send three runs over the plate while the Navy gathered five runs in the early innings. Jim Comerford was on the mound for the Maroon and pitched a fine game.
The team was scheduled to pla two games in New York after their return from the Southern trip. These contests were washed our by the spring rains and the schedules of the opponents did not permit their being played at a later date. The first of these was with Columbia at Baker Field and the second would have brought Colgate to Fordham Field.
The Maroon Nine defeated the Boston College Eagles in the game at Boston on April 19 and in the return game on May 24, Andrews pitched both of these games. In the first game at Boston, Andrews held the Eagles to five scattered hits and struck out ten of their batters, winning the game, 7-2. Boston College used three pitchers, off whose offerings the Ram batters, led bv Labornc and Sabatini, gathered seven hits. In the second contest, Andrews was again on the mound and behind his splendid hurling, the Maroon hit to victory, 6-3

The games with Lehigh and Muhlenberg were easily won. Comerford held Lehigh to seven lues and three runs while the Maroon batters gathered fifteen hits and crossed the plate nine times. Behind the twirling of Pat Folcv, who was in fine form, the Maroon Nine won the game with Muhlenberg, 17-5.
Holy Cross won the annual home and-home series from the Maroon in the first game by a narrow margin and in the second contest most decisively. In the game at Ford ham Field, the Maroon held the lead for seven innings hut a Crusader rally in the closing innings snatched victory from defeat for the New Englanders and they won 7-4 In the second game Maroon errors were costly and the Crusaders overwhelmed the visitors, the final score being 18-6
St Bonavcntuic and Vale were tamed by the Maroon Nine in April. Jim Comerford pitched the Ford ham team to a 10-6 win over the Saints and Neil Andrews stopped the Eli team bv a count of 3-1.

Good teams area habit at Ford ham and the club of 1930-31 proved no exception. Its crushing victories over Vale and Pennsylvania opened the season most auspiciously and served co establish this team as a worthy successor to the great teams of yore. The Quakers were particularly impressed, hailing the Ram as the best team seen in years in the Palaestra.
St. Francis, who had the honor of opening our schedule, succumbed to the superior might of the Maroon. Our next foe, those friendly enemies, the Alumni, almost proved to be more hostile than amicable. The 38-29 score clearly indicates the closeness of the contest.
Coach Kcllcher did not regret the defeat of his Alma Mater, rather the convincing
manner in which it was administered gratified him. Little Niagara by no means yielded easily,but forced the Varsity to extend itself to assure victory. Syracuse, playing brilliantly, was the winner all the way through. The varsity never did really threaten, though their persevering attempts to lessen the gap which the Orangemen opened at the start of the game were deserving of real praise. Because of this light, the Maroon made quite a contest out of an "on night" for the Salt City College.
The Colgate game in many respects resembled the previous struggle. Although in this ease the defeat was not so clear cut. nevertheless both Maroon teams played line ball, featuring many line shots. The Ram was close to winning this one, but all their skill availed not against the 1'atcs.
Through an unfortunate misunderstanding, Penn State
found itself involved in a conflict of dates, but Ford ham removed tins embarrassing difficulty by graciously releasing Penn from its obligation. The Pitt game was of a very defensive nature. Close guarding, the result of mutual respect for each other’s scoring ability, characterized this affair. The Panther finally came out on top, due to the foul shooting ability of Tim Lowrv
The battle of Gettysburg ended with the Maroon banner waving on high. The Ram, panting for breath after three unaccustomed defeats, found this game a welcome breather
Ford ham. with a three-year winning streak, faced the Manhattan fray determinedly. An epic struggle, in which the lead alternated eight times, ensued. The Jaspers won only in the closing minutes of play, and thereby preserved their lengthy winning streak. The green outfit showed championship courage in this battle and we certainly admire their spirit, but Ford ham. playing probably the leading Eastern Team, was glorious in defeat. Never did they lose heart, on the contrary they rallied to overcome a lead Manhattan held from the first half. By this game Fordham warned its future opponents that they were possessed of class and so not to be treated lightly.
From the banks of the old Raritan came dear old Rutgers to challenge the Maroon. Minus the services of Jack Grossman, they never really had a chance, though they spurted valiantly as the contest drew to its close.
Comparative scores indicated little hope for Lafayette and indications in this case were prophetic. The Maroon of Fordham submerged that of Lafa cttc.
Remembering well the one point loss of the previous season, Fordham was most anxious to subdue the Lavender, a team always difficult to defeat. That Fordham was able to accomplish this was most heartening, but that it was achieved through the medium of converted fouls was nothing short of miraculous. How many times has City been victorious because of their ken and yen for tossing the sphere through the hoop from the penalty line? Probably never before has a Holman coached team scored more baskets and vet losr Never once during this thrilling contest was there a dull moment. Spectacular baskets and swift passing had the spectators dazzled. As the final seconds ticked away, the score was ried The wild throng anticipated an extra period. It was at this juncture that the big standing guard Parker, with stoical calmness made good the foul try which won the game for Fordham. Jerry K ad ice in this game rose to rare heights by his very timely baskets and the deadly accuracy of lus foul tries.
Many there were among the crowd who felt that never again would they witness such a close game. However the N. Y. U. game the following week proved that history does repeat itself. The score of 27-26 was about the only difference there was between the two games, and that difference was infinitesimal Whenever traditional rivals meet, past records are as misleading as real esrate catalogues. That is why this game cannot be considered an upset, even though the Violets were the conquerors of St.

John’s. Shortly after the start of the second half, N. Y. IJ. tied the score. From then on the game was nip and tuck, every point scored bv one team being matched almost immediately by the other. The final minute found Fordham leading by two points only to have this lead reduced toa point in the last seconds cl play. Radice again played the stellar role. His follow-up shots often stirred his fellow players to still greater efforts. Babe Hurley was not far behind in the matter of points scored, while on the floor he completely ourplavcd the much-heralded llugrcr.
The wind-up encounter with Columbia was a return engagement. The Maroon,eager to continue their winning streak and thereby top off a line season, played very well. From start to finish they fought gallantly, always trying to offset the great advantage Columbia had by virtue of its lanky center. It was in this way that Columbia was able to obtain possession of the ball and so hold temporarily at least the Maroon offensive in abeyance. Bill Putzer played an exceptionally great game, his pass work being almost perfect. His baskets, moreover, kept Fordham easily in rherunning. At standing guard John ( onrov was noteworthy, and as a result, the Eastern League leaders found themselves abruptly-checked time and again. For as the season waned, John had developed the very heartening habit of dropping in the long ones. And Columbia learned this to their regret.
In regard to the number of games won and lost, the Ram has been frequently more successful. But never was Fordham represented by a team which, in the throesofa losing streak was able tc rise up and conquer its tormenters. No team was too powerful in the face of the enraged Ram. Columbia, rulers of the Eastern League, found the Maroon a mightv and formidable foe.
To this team, then, our praise is due. To win when it is easy to do so is wholly natural; to win when the opposition is considered too powerful, or the under dog too weak, is achievement. This was exactly what our team accomplished by its victories over C. C. N. Y., N. Y. U.,Columbia and the rest.
The individuals who were most instrumental in this great performance were Jerry Radice first and foremost. Babe Hurley, the man who, a forward by nature, was a center bv necessity, and Red Weiss, the freckled forward. Too, Bill Putzer and John Conrov deserve much credit for the way they fed the above trio. These five formed the combination that started the season as doubtful regulars only to finish it as undisputed first team men.
Radice, probably imbibing some strange elixir, suddenly arrived amid a flurry of baskets. The box scores cl the final games of the season bear testimony to his flair for scoring. Weiss on the other hand was not as consistent a point getter, being prone to brilliancy or mediocrity as the mood possessed him. On Ins "on” nights. Red’s ability to swish them through was uncanny, while other nights he could put them on the rim, but not through the hoop. A player who found himself late in the season was John Conrov. John displaced Parker at the standing guard post by virtue of long rangeshots.

By so doing lie upheld the Maroon tradition made by Reardon, Woods, Leary, Rohan and company. The two-pointers are very handy and do much towards upsetting the poise of the opponents, w liilc at the same time it encourages the fellow players. Willie Putzer, the finished floerman, played good basketball all season. His steadying influence,his basketball sense saved manyabad situation for Fordham. Bill was imperturbable and this quality is rare in the hear of game Never did Bill waste a shot on a foolish attempt, never did he lose possession of rhe ball by a wild heave, rather lie-preferred to bide Ins time and then make the most of it. Mulligan, Parker, and Haves all belong in the same category. Brilliant but erratic typifies their game. Mulligan, except for the early games in which lie shone, did not live up to his previous year’s promise. Hayes, however, came along well near the end and much is expected of him next year. Of Parker little need be said. His abilitx is too well established to be doubted. That he slumped is admitted, that he is a great player and will continue to be one, follows Irom the natural course of events. The remaining men of the squad saw little service, yet their endeavors are equally appreciated. That the acclaim of the crowd was not theirs serves only to exploit their real spirit in giving of themselves and their time so willingly.
To the team of 1930-31, then, much praise and glory is due. Though not as successful in point of games won as other great teams have been, theirs is rhe peculiar glory of the fighting team that has overcome something greater than other teams, a losing streak resulting from an unusual combination of inopportune bad breaks, of fatigue and of some natural discouragcmcnr. A great team is one that can come back, that can overcome this mental handicap. Such a team was ours, and they will be remembered for it longer than if they had won any number of easy games. They had the spirit, the fight of true sportsmen, and they never quit, even when the going was hardest and rhe outlook blackest—they were the team that came hack!

high standard established by the 1929-30 quartet. How-well thev have succeeded is a matter of record. They
a have scored a place in every meet entered and bid fair to
make Ford ham men forger about teams of the past. Individual performances of note were scored by Carl Thaten.'32. who captured the 50-yard dash at the Mill-rose A A. games, and Joe McCluskcy, who scored a thrilling victory over Leo Lermond at the K. of C. games in Brooklyn, a second place against Gus Moore in rlu Brooklyn College Games, second in the National ( hampionship two-mile run to Leo I ermond w ho won the race in 9:13:8; and finally captured the two-mile Intercollegiate title in 9:17:08, breaking the record by five seconds.

The Tennis Team
Fordham lias always been represented on the tennis courts by very powerful teams, winning as they did in the past such noteworthy titles as the Eastern Inter-collegiate singles and doubles, besides defeating most of the rival universities and colleges. The season of 1930 saw a less seasoned team emerge victorious in half their engagements. They would undoubtedly have won most of the matches that were halted bv rain. The burden of carrying on fell on the shoulders of the two veterans of the year before, Capt. Vic Brady and Lorn Cahalan, both of whom acquitted themselves admirably. From the class of ’31 only one man succeeded in making the team. George Scholze. who was also Freshman manager. The remainder were '32 men—Del Guercio, Mc-Closkev, McDonald, Ostrofsky and Purcell. In the Eastern Inter-Collegiate tournament the team received a high ranking. At the close of the season Torn Cahalan. '30, now' Law, ’33. was elected captain and George Scholzc playing manager
The prospects for the 1931 season appear verv bright. The ream is an experienced one and a pre-season judgment indicates that Manhattan, N. Y. U., Columbia, Armv and Sr. John's, to mention a few of the opponents to be met, will have to play a stellar brand of tennis in order to win. Captain Cahalan and others of the team are entered in the National Indoor Tournament and in this and all their team matches, we wish them success.

397The Swimming Team
Coach McDonough turned out his usual well-rounded team and in Captain Harms and Schecl he had two exceptional men.
In the meets to date, the team has beaten Rider, C. C. N. Y., and N. Y. U. The Armv won a close victory 37 to 34, but losing to such a team is no disgrace as the Army has one of the best teams in the F.asr.
The Arms meet was the most thrilling of the season. Gus Harms by taking the 200-vard breast stroke, the 440-vard free style, and swimming on the winning relay team with Schecl, who conquered the joint holders of the Army pool record for the 100-yard free style, the star of the meet. In spite of the efforts of these men, the meet was lost, but by only three points.
Our ancient enemies from N. Y. U. were litcrallv swamped and found themselves on the wrong end of the 4V2C score. Again the dependable Harms and Scheel were double winners.
Praise must be bestowed on the Maroon mermen, not onl for then victories but also lor the way the accepted defeat, giving their best for Fordhain, and also to Coach McDonough, whose efforts have produced one of the strongest swimming teams ever to represent Fordham.
Hail the champions of the .Second Corps area! Which means that our own Ford ham Rifle Team ranks first among the R O T. C. reams of New York,New Jersey,Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Porto Rico, having beaten such teams as PortoRico,Syracuse, Cornell, and City College, the former champions in the government matches held last spring. In the subsequent national match Fordham placed fifth, which is not so bad for a national match! And then, in the Outdoor Metropolitan Championship Match at Pcckskill, New York, Fordham, represented by Nelson Edge, '31, the captain, George Nullmeyer, '30, the manager. Anthony Porcelli, and Philip Ryan, placed second, beating N. Y. U. and bowing to City College by only eight points out of the possible eight hundred. This was a very creditable performance, considering the fact that with the exception of Nullmeyer, none of the men had am experience with the .30 calibre army rifle. This strikingly attests to the soundness of the team's instruction in the gallery rifle by Coach Sergeant Joseph H. Smith, U. S. A.
This year the team is doing very nicely, keeping a comfortable margin of victories over defeats. In the shouldcr-to-shoulder matches, the nimrods vanquished St. John's College and rhe Clarendon Club of Brooklyn, the Metropolitan Life Insurance ream twice, and the 212th Coast Artillery Regiment of the New York National Guard, losing to City College, N. Y. U., and the Stock Exchange team. Fordhams total for these matches was 6666 points to the opponents 6294. In correspondence matches they heat Boston College, the Universities of North Carolina, South Dakota, Delaware, and Cornell, losing only to Army and Kemper Military Academy. The total here was 19093 ro the opponents 18193, or altogether ten matches won and five lost, scoring just 1250 points more than the opposition Officers for this year are Porcelli, captain, Edge, manager, Ryan, assistant manager, and Reynolds, treasurer. Other members of the team who arc consistent marksmen arc Budetti, Hughes, Flanagan, Christoph, and Malaspina.

399THE CROSS COUNTRY TEAMwwwww
Under the guidance of Coach Crccdon, a former quarter-back and captain of the Boston College team, the "Frosh "were initiated into the thrills and spills of college football. The team s able manager. Clay Buckhout. '32, arranged a very representative schedule which would establish the rating of the embryonic eleven.
The game with Lafayette showed the Fordham eleven quite strong, for the opponents were apparently a well-coached team. C. C. N. Y. proved an easy victim. In the game with Samuel Johnson, our "Frosh" proved superior in line plunging. The keenest playing was done by Ward and Captain McDermott
The most notable game of the season was the battle with N. V. U. ‘'Frosh,” somc-whar of a post-season game The two teams met before a crowd of six thousand at the Yankee Stadium. This game was for the benefit of the New York American Christmas Fund for the Unemployed. Among the first games played for charity, it illustrated Fordham’s desire to aid in the relief of the unemployment problem. Captain McDermott played a superb game, bringing victory to his deserving team.
The season resulted in a complete list of victories for Fordham. The brilliant record of the Varsity was thus mirrored in the achievements of the humble "Frosh who will undoubtedly supply the material for a powerful 1931 Varsity Eleven.
The schedule and scores are as follows: Fordham Freshmen 23 Fordham Freshmen 46 Fordham Freshmen 30 Fordham Freshmen 27

7 7IFreshman Track
In the onh meet of the season the Freshmen bowed by a close margin to the harriers of City College Many promising runners were uncovered in the squad during the season and there arc hopes for an unusually fast group of varsity men for next year.
With the largest turnout in years, the Freshmen continued their good work in cross country. Almost any day one could go into the gym and Find a score or more Freshmen working out under the expert guidance ol Jake Weber. Such a condition is almost a sure sign of a revival in track at Fordham. Candidates were recruited irom the unbeaten Frosh football squad in the persons of Jim Couhig, Sanrarpio, Del Isola, and ‘ Red" Keenan, and from the class as a whole, Mulvihill, John McCluskcy, Hogan. Matthews, McGladc, Lowe, Rogers, Dolan, Godfrey, Learv, Murphy, Lofurno, Lehman, and DeFabio. With a squad so willing and hard working, and with coaching as only Jake Weber can give, it is impossible to predict how far they will go. It is not too great a stretch of the imagination to see in these men the foundation of a new era in track at Fordham.
Couhig, McCluskcy, Mulvihill. Hogan, and Leary were middle distance men. Del Isola, Rogers, Matthews, Dolan, Lofurno, Matthews, and Lowe were arrive in the sprints. Donald Waldic took care of the men as manager.
As the Freshman team is the varsity of the future, interest is always keen regarding its personnel. Games won or lost are of incidental importance, rather the manner in which the Freshman perform is what attracts attention. Because of this, such scintillating stars as Fleming. Lynch, Pavlicovic, and Pepper immediately attain prominence. These men played well, indicating real promise, even in defeat. Though their efforts were ncccssarilv individualistic, due to the limited time Coach Kellehcr could spare from his big team, nevertheless they won many contests This proof of their natural ability is indisputable.
The guards on the club were Pepper and Pavlicovic. both versatile athletes. These football men arc destined to uphold a Fordham tradition that the guards should be football men. Of the two, Pavlicovic is the more spectacular due to his flair lor shooting accurately from the most unorthodox positions. At center, the weak spot of the varsity, Hurley being rightly a forward, three men vied for the honor. Williams. Gramala, and Lynch realized that a varsity berth was part of the victors' spoils. Williams, not as tall as the others, will probably be sluiced to forward. Gramala and Lynch, both line players, easily met the demand for a tall ccnccr. Gramala, a man who knows how to light for the ball, uses his height ro advanrage. Lynch is the most improved man on the squad. This left-hander will clinch the center berth before he graduates, if he continues to develop as he has so far. The forward of whom much is expected is Fleming. A product of Fordham Prep, he is reminiscent of Nick Landers of Freshman days. He is a beautiful shot and a brilliant passer.

“Sic Transit Gloria Mundi”
And by the same token we find that sic transit gloria sundi. Beyond this however - the analogy doesn’t hold, because on close examination we find that gloria sic tuesdi transits in a manner altogether different from that of the first two. And "What of it?", the uninitiated mind asks."Will that help to build bigger bridges.or will the manner in which a fridi sic transits aid in the publication of bigger and better volumes of Chaucer?” Let us attack the problem with an a priori frame of mind. If you can't work yourself into that state, resign, sing a song, do something, but don’t stand rhcrc with vour hands in vour pockets utterly obli ious to your surroundings. Let us answer their difficulties mi a manner worthy of college men. They ask about bigger bridges. What is the matter with those we have? Are they not big enough? What would they do with a bigger bridge? Where would they put it? Besides they couldn't cross it before they came to it. And when they do cross it what will they do? The chances are ten to three that they will get lonesome after a while and want to come back. So you sec, by the simple means of an argumcncum ad homincm wc leave them up a tree. As for the second argument advanced by our adversaries wc chop that tree from under them by merely asking, "Aren't the volumes of Chaucer that wc have now big enough?” Men, nothing will ever be able to take the place of a college education.
One day early in September 1927, Brother Quinn, unmindful of the ugly rumors that filled the air, left the gates unlocked. On the surface this act seemed of lirtlc consequence, but ah me, it has taken this knowledge foundrv of ours four years to undo the damage done on that day. For it was then that the Class of ’31 started to owe the bursar money, a habit that hasgrownwith the years. Forfour long,dark,and oftentimes discouraging vears, a furious faculty labored diligently to remove the blot from the fair’scutcheon of AlmaMater.and the fruitsof their laborsare about to be realized. It won’t be long now before we array ourselves in flowing robes and listen to numerous dignitaries swallow their pride and tell us what a pleasure it has been to work with us and predict brilliant futures for each and everyone of us. Their secret belief though, is that within a year every member of the class will be safelv restrained behind the bars of one or the other of the state asylums. In other words, wc get out this year to the profound relief of the professorial personnel, and the future once again takes on a rosy hue for Univcrsitas Ford ha mens is.

One bleak day last fall a hoard of undernourished, poorly clothed wretches, with a look of acute pain born of resignation etched deeply into their haggard faces, weakly crawled their feeble way along the Elm-lined path. The lookout in the Administration Building, fearing a Communist uprising, sent in a hurry call for the riot squad. Finally one of the w raith-like individuals summoned up enough strength to prove in syllogistic form, that the rabble was nothing more nor less than the remnants of the Class of 31 come hack for more. After they had locked up the poor boxes and we had been permitted to go our way unmolested the tension was lifted and everything again assumed its normal air That is. everything but the Class of ’31 Never more will we be the stalwart, robust specimens we once were. If you have forgotten how you looked the last time you were in good health, we respectfully refer you to a picture taken prior to September, 1927.

Wr can’t understand how this picture came to be here. It won't happen again.
zooming within an ace of winning the National Championship, the Bridge Team gained wide recognition and completed the most successful season in its history here at Fordham. Shuffling all her opponents but one,on the discard,the team showed the effects of the expert coaching of Jack Bicycle, the Maroon Mentor. The schedule was the most difficult ever undertaken by a team here at old Rose Hill. Dick Mobey, universally acclaimed as the best right finesse cast of the Rocky Mountains, played Ins usual stellar role. Always on deck and leader of the pack, he was the main cog in the machine. The team as a whole showed a marked improvement over last year. Bicycle had to shoot only one man for leading away from a king.
The only defeat suffered by the Maroon stalwarts was the game with Paducha Tech. And it is quite probable that had Joe Bonomo not played with his sleeves rolled up above his elbows, this game might also have gone down in the records as a Fordham victory.
The games were so well attended that it is probable the gate receipts will be sufficient large to carry football another year in spite of the almost negligible interest in that barbarous pastime at Fordham. It might be well to add here that Jack Bicycle, Fordham s premier coach, was the first to use a round table in intercollegiate bridge competition and so prevent the opponents from getting a square deal. Bicycle will spend the summer in marking cards and otherwise preparing for next season while the team will get itself into share for the coming campaign by practicing sleight of hand tricks.

The Hockey Team has never been as active as it has been during the past year. Scarcely a week-end passed, particularly during the football season, when there wasn’t at least one needy sextet making a bee line for Uncle Ben’s to do their HOCKeving. Uncle Ben declared himself pleased with the result o! this year's work and anticipates an even bigger year next year. He lias already made arrangements to have his three balls rcgildcd.
The Debating Team this year is composed for the most part of those students who expect to be married shortly after graduation. The big debate of the year was with Whatsis College for Women. Our huskies took the negative, and complications immediately set in. The girls wanted the negative, and when they found they couldn't have it they began to sulk, pout, w himpel and cringe Our bovs retaliated by tracking mud all over the living room floor anil dropping cigar ashes on the rugs. This brought instant action. The girls packed their bags and went home to mother. The boys had no place to go and lost the decision bv default. It was default of the judges. The team ended its season last week by popular demand. The authorities have the situation well in hand and there is little danger ol there being a debating team next year
The Glee Club was com|x scd of all those students who felt the need of registering glee on various occasions, such as. the ending of school, a member of the faculty slipping on the ice. etc. The high point of the seasons activities was the almost universal registration of glee that took place Commencement Day. when at the prospect of being free from the tyrannical toils of the faculty the entire student bod' threw epileptic fits. The fits were thrown with wreck less abandon and narrowly missed striking two visitors from out of town. Next year all lit throwing will be done on the comparative safety of the football field.

OF AN IDEAL
♦ ♦ ♦
A YEARBOOK is more than a series of printed pages bound into a cover. It is the result of hours of anxious thought and patient, persistent effort. The staff of the Maroon have accepted a real responsibility, and under the leadership of the Editor, Mr. William S. Dreschcr, and the Business Manager, Mr. Timothy A. O'Leary, Jr., they have produced a book of which they may well be proud. Wc feel sure that you who turn these pages and re-live the events of the year just concluded, will join us in congratulating them.
» In our humble capacity as publishers, it has been a privilege to be associated with the production of this book. Perhaps wc have in a small way caught some of the enthusiasm displayed by the staff itself, for in our hands the production of a yearbook becomes a very personal matter.
We are justly proud of the confidence placed in our ability to produce a book in keeping with the ideals of the staff and school which sponsor it. We earnestly hope rhat this feeling of confidence will persist, and that it will be our privilege to place the facilities of our organization at the service of the yearbook staff of Fordham University through successive years.
