HE ceaseless onrush of time has carried us through four years at Fordham and is
Trevealing 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 voy-
age, turns to take a last look at his home, so also do we 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 Frosh in 1927 and ending with that at the Polo Grounds
with Bucknell in 1930, the outstanding contest was the victory over New York Uni-
versity in 1929. It was in this battle that the team found the power latent within it
to overcome a highly touted Violet 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 efhgy of an N. Y. U. player, the torch light 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
LlUClCI' the dormitory windows with a bucket of water as our plaudit for each rendition
of a love ballad, the pre-victory march around the foc's grounds and the frantic

efforts of firemen to locate the tire that did not exist. Although the season included
victories over Boston College, Holy Cross and Bucknell, no other triumph was greeted
with as much enthusiasm as that over our neighborhood rival. The celebration con-
tinued into the following week with rallies held, all over the campus,conc1uding 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 Virginia 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 Bucknell.
The Class of '31 took especial pride in the record ofthe team,for the majority of the
Varsity eleven were members of the class. In its history the players were outstanding
not only as good athletes but also as good students. Fordham can point them out as
examples of how well athletics and scholarship combine if only good sense and true
school loyalty are employed. So that as Siano, McMahon, Pieculewicz, Hurley,
Eclewicz, Wisniewski, Foley, Holmberg, Tracey, Miskinis, Shableski, 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 are the episodes surrounding
the games, the trips to Holy Cross and Boston with the fun derived more than com-
pensating for the troubles encountered in the journey. The trip to Boston in '29g the
dinner parties held after the 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 are a vast number of incidents associated with these eipsodes and for years to
come they will be narrated as "Do-you-remember" stories, and when there is no
longer a group to listen, but only one to 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 lirst accompanied them and the unhappy ones will be tempered by a phil-
osophy that only the aged possess.
Along with these memories are those ofthe dances held by the Pennsylvania, Con-
necticut, Massachusetts, New jersey, Upstate and Brooklyn-Long-Island Clubs. It is
easy to recollect the preparations for the dances, the conversations among ourselves
of the merits of prospective partnersg the night of the dance itselfg the meetings of
long separated friendsg the music of the orchestra changing from waltz tempo to a
fast fox trot with no forewarningg 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 night the exter-
nal world and lived in an atmosphere of friendliness and happiness closely approach-
In contrast to the dances there were the SophOlT10I'C S1H0kC1' and the Senior Class
Banquet to the football team. Both of them were well attended and there was an over-
flowing of good humor and comradeship that only an event of this kind can bring

To 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 we 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 by 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 ourjunior 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 be-
tween every one concerned. Some of us in the future may be candidates for public
offices but we doubt that 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 ofjohn 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 Cun-
ningham, 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 we were Sophomores and the political combats
of our third year when his justice and intelligence helped us to solve the perplexities
arising from the choice of new ofiicials. In Freshman year the President was ably
assisted by Ray Hurley, Vice-President, Ed Ricca, Secretary and Bill O'Beirne, Treas-
urer. The following year Charles Lynch had replaced Ray,Hurley, with Tony Pisani
and Charlesjones making their appearances as Secretary and Treasurer. With the com-
ing of junior Year, Pisani moved up to the Vice-Presidency and Ray Hurley returned
as Representative. The oflicial 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 oflicials of the school and of the stu-
dents, 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 responsi-
bilities of their positions than their predecessors.

The Band, which added so much to the glamour and color of the football games
continued under the fine leadership ofjoe Gatti with Tony Pisani gaily leading the
band down the field in his position as Drum Major.
The Ram found a highly efficient Editor-in-Chief in John Lane, ably supported by
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-
ney, the ever resourceful Circulation Manager, Angelo Badolato, genial Reference
Manager and a hard working news staff consisting ofjohn McManmon and Phil Ryan.
The staff of the Monthly, the Fordham magazine, which although it had already
won high praise from outside sources,was delightfully improved during the past year,
we Hnd Pete Cusack, Bill Cusack, Nelson Edge, Bill Hines and Ed Silliere contributing
articles and poems, while Tim O'Leary continued to be Business Manager for the
second year and accomplished a feat in handling the duties of that office.
In the dramatic field the Class finds itself no less well represented, for among those
taking an active part in the furtherance of the work of the Mimes and Mummers
are joe O'Donohue, Tom Waldie, George Nicolaus, George Collins,Vincent Carlin,
Bill Ciolko, Bill Sibrans and Jack Cawley. In Senior Year many of the above were
seen in the excellent presentation of Pinero's "Trelawney of the Wells," given at the
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 astounding growth 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 estab-
lished 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 courtg Captain Elcewicz leads Sheerin, Andrews,
Aube, Foley, Maynard and Ryan 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 series of concerts at which they equalled and even surpassed
the nne performances given in other years.
The wild exuberance of our youth has been tempered on six occasions by notes of
sadness which hlled 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 only for a short time.

and Bob Brierton heard the voice of the Master and were borne in the gentle hands
of angels as they ascended into the abode of the Saints. Now from on high theywatch
us as we struggle along the path of life, and moved by pity and compassion they
intercede with the Divine Saviour mercifully to guide us along the path to eternity.
Now in June, 1931, 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 gayly 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 we
forget to say 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 we
are swept by the wave offlife from the gentle and Catholic influence of Alma Mater
into the bitterness and joy of the external world. The years have been short, very
short, but during them we 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. .

and for our part, we are 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
alwayslookcd forward to the time
when Andy was to read his paper,

search he would impart. Andy will
study medicine, and is certain to
be a worth-while addition to the

N Louis ii exemplified the an-
I cient maxim that silence is gold-
en. Not that we mean to suggest
that he is dull or disinteresting.
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 tern-
perament makes him 21 welcome
addition to any group and 'has
founded for him friendships which
will last for a lifetime.
Louis intends to grace the medi-
cal profession wherein we are cer-
tain that he will be more than a
credit to his Alma Mater.

of amazement on the faces of hat-

picture of nge. To a scho-
lastic record that is most credit-
able, he has mahaged, between
hurried trips to his home in West-
chester, to impart his aid to in-
numerable activities of worth on
the campus. The Harvester Club
felt his guiding influence as Presi-

A LITTLE tr e oflOld Erin, a
large port on of genuine Irish
personality, arid an immeasurable
quantity of the friendship of his
classmates are the things that have
endeared Joe to us. He needs noth-
ing 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 we
all know, joe will land on his feet
and like it.
"To keep' you head when all
about you ar losing theirs."
These immortal vlords of Kipling
seem to be particdlarly applicable
to this Son of Hartford. Ed's calm,
confident air of supreme indiffer-
ence in the face of impending ob-
stacles, obstacles which creased
the brows of his classmates, has
always been a source of envy. -
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 are best
found in the company of laughter.

the laws of gravitation and the

the least being perturbed by the
immense formulae and equations

saw no reason to worry. His is the

things-and a few books, in an
appreciative heartincss in living,
in a rough affection for a regiment
of friends. Although he spent only
the last two years of his college
career at Fordham, he was selected
in Senior year toeditthe poetry and
dramatic sections of the Monthly.
He offered to its genial society all
the flamboyant genius of his com-
panyg his laugh, his rich theatre
talk, the poetic brushes and thistles
of his argument, the vigor and
brilliance of his gayety. And he
leaves Fordham with another per-
sonality in its tradition.

actually has. His entertaining
essays and pointed comments in
the Monthb' render this obvi-

foibles of his fellow humans,
coupled with a delicate sense of
humor are traits of Bi1l's writing.
Of his personality we can say
even more. Unobtrusive self-conii-
dence, plus the ability to make
friends stamps Bill as one who will
unquestionably overcome any ob-
stacle which may rear itself in his
path. As for the future, we know
that under the aegis of this same

HEN we rst met John we

bility. His pleasant features and
his air of goodfellowship made
him our friend. Whether singing
with the Glee Club or playing in
the Band, he manifested a sincer-
ity and naturalness that was the
envy of all. Coupling to this a fine
sense of humor and wit that is as
keen as it is subtle, John portrayed
for us the spirit of a true son of
Fordham. With the same geniality
he embraced the "Ratio Studio-
rum" and swept through the four
years in triumph.

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 some-
thing. This, perhaps, explains his
four years of academic triumphs.

ful talents in the same generous
Way he did at Fordham.
Trecognize in him a rare char-

of mind by which he finds, not
pleasure alone, but also intrinsic
value in all the phases ofa young

and his conversation abounds with
sound opinions that lack any

cation, when foui' years ago Joe
carelessly swaggered along the
"elm lined path" of Fordham.
His attitude was most gratify-
ing and soothing to his Freshman
classmates and they observed in
Joe a veritable gold-mine of knowl-
edge-whose ingenuity perceived
fallacies, profound or otherwise,
in all problems. A difiiculty? Well,

Although this group somewhat
evade the of their fellow
students, we often find among
them extremely interesting per-

this category. Of an unassuming
personality, he exemplified a con-
scientious learncdness which im-
pelled a deep respect, and yet his
wit added an informal touch, a
mellowness to his sincerity which
was admired by his friends.
With such ability to concen-

that everyone near him appears the

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."
We predict for himva most suc-

thought have always enabled him
to pick out the ludicrous or hu-

With these attributes to carry him
through, John will make his mark
in the world.

casual observer perhaps a bit too
stern for a yout but to those who
knew Fred, hel was a gem of a
friend. His genuineness and schol-
arship heightened one's respect
for his sincerity of purpose. All in
all Fred was a perfect gentleman
under all conditions. Admiration
and respect are man's highest hon-

as well as respected.
Endowed with such gifts as

would, without doubt, place Andy
among the intellectuals. By intel-
lectual 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, how-
ever, through sincere effort, has
overcome this defect and has
developed amen tal 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

this Bill rides thr ugh in rare tri-
umph. His are the' gifts of aware-

nuance, emotion, and ephemeral
feeling, radicatecl in an extraor-
dinary sensitivity and giving rise
to a most brilliant causerie.

has played no small part in Ford-

from the limelight of leadership

him a place in our hearts and we
accord him the respect due to one
of such a gentlemanly character.

of the 1931 MAROON, as well as for
Chairman of the Senior week com-

from many extra-curricular activ-

this ability into other fields, and

in any undergrziduate. This spirit
of loyalty found its highest ex-
pression, not only in his conversa-

to an even greater extent, in his
affiliation with the various college
clubs and their activities. He was
a prominent member of the Brook-

interest were never lacking when
"Red" was among those present.
He could always perceive the hum-
or of any situation-which to an-
other less cheerful student might
seem non-existent. To associate
with such a one is indeed to men-
tally refresh oneself. w

our friend will enter, Fordham un-
doubtedly can be proud to have
him among her graduates.

O 'D. has unconsciously caused us
to envy his consistency and facil-
ity in becoming the master of all
difficulties. His loyalty to Ford-
ham and her activities has always
been evident. Memory will oft re-
call his subtlc humor, his conta-
gious smile, and his heartychuckle.
Let it sufhce to say-he is one
stamped with all the finer quali-
ties of manhood and one whom we
are proud to call friend. And so,
Ed, let us say not "good-bye" but
"so long" for awhile.

HEST out, ead erect, with
C whirling ton majestically
leading the banil through its ma-
noeuvres at the Polo Grounds,
Tony was a familiar sight to the
entire student body. But his fel-
low Seniors knew him as an indi-
vidual, not merely as part of a
unit-a man whom we were all
proud to know. Quiet, self-sufh-
cient, and friendly, and with his
inexhaustible fund of wit, Tony
was a source of admiration and
pride to the Class of '3l. He was
truly a representative member of

pect a great future.

which constituite an essential an
important part of any group in col-

likable chap and a pleasing friend,
indeed, to those who knew him.

always as enthusiastic infollow-

was in following the lines of rea-

four years he was with us. His
activities were always wcll-bal-

To encounter his faimous son of

would .never t ink of him as the
peerless leader and shining star of

and reserved, you must talk to him
and draw him out. Then and only
then, can you really understand
the kind of man he is. When you
do, you find a man of striking
modesty, delightful personality,
and firm convictions.
We regret deeply that we are to

for his work, he labored quietly
and efiiciently at the arduous tasks
assigned to the stage crew-tasks

same policy of unstinted, quiet,
efficient work will insure Bill a

Song at Sunset
And so at sunset we stand with the dark valleys before us
Wrapped in the coldness of the air of a quiet hill,
While the voices we heard acry in our little world.
Lost in a greater silence, fail and slowly grow still.
Oh let us turn back and seize our hearts again!
Oh blessed eyes! look back at the sun and catch its face,
That, bearing its flame-like image in our inner minds
We may go forth to mysterious valleys and seek our place.
And if we have lost 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, nurturer 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!

OMB enlightened elder once told a member ofthe Class of '32 that the first two years
S of college are the harder and that the last two are relatively easy. He was slightly
mistaken, either that or he never came into contact with the intricacies of the Physics
Laboratory. This does not mean that work is distasteful to the present Juniors. Oh
no-we have a sincere affection for it! We seldom leave class until an hour or so after
the final bell in order that we may clear up all class work and begin the morrow
lt would be a grave error to omit reference to the new Physics Building and its ex-
cellent facilities, which the present Junior Class is the first to use. And it would be a
far graver error. even in recounting only 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 lethargy attributed to them in
song and story, it will be the youthful energy of the present Rector.
We almost tremble as we turn to extra-curricular activities. The reason for this is
the unprecedented fact that in the Class of '32 there is scarcely a member who has
not excelled in some voluntary accomplishment. Since it would be impossible to name
them all, we can but mention a few.

For example, Robert Ponsiglione and Robert Nebot are the assistant news editors
of The Ram. Maurice A. Connell is the staff photographer, and his pictures give to it
a graphic quality that it never before possessed. Henry White, 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, Tirdel, Moshy, Walsh, Meany, Leary and Cleary.
The Fordham Monthly is under the guidance of Editor-in-Chief Richard J. Burke.
Without losing its appeal to the inrelligenrmz, 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.
Probably 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 are also prominent in the
Harvester Club. The fine work of Bernard O'Connell and Martin Tracey in announc-
ing 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 lecture-debate.
The varsity play, "Trelawney of the Wells," was a triumph for Junior talent.
Joseph F. Coughlin's "scintillating portrayal of Avonia Bunn, captivated the audi-
ences on both nights of the play's presentation." Thomas E. Paradine 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 the 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 Telfer and Parrott respectively are 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 ofJunior Year would be complete without some mention of the Minor
Logic Specimen. Comparatively few men in the class were called upon in this in-
quisitorial 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 acquitted themselves nobly. This splendid showing was probably due in part to
the kindly manner of the Board of Examiners, but it stands nevertheless as a tribute
to the talent of '32. Among those called upon were Messrs. Moseley, O'Connell,
McManus, Hayes, and Ratigan.
The Class of'32 remains distinguished in the realm of song.NormanT. LeBoeuf con-
tinues as, accompanist to the Glee Club, while Bannigan, Paradine, O'Connell,
McManus, Tirdel, Hartmann, McCarthy, Carey, Gilhuly, and Gorman are numbered
among its members. Mr. Tirdel also plays the violin in the Fordham Orchestra. Junior
is likewise well represented on the Fordham University Band.

We 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 LeBoeuf high in its councils, the new French
Monthly, Fordham France, with the same gentleman as its editor and Marcel Delegre
as one of his staff, the Playshop and Quill Club which are practically under Junior
control. Joseph F. Coughlin is President of the latter organization, and it includes
Richard J. Burke, the Editor of the Mantbbf, among its members.
When we come to athletics, we must ask the gentle reader to check up on us by
means of another department in this volumej 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 team. On the diamond this spring, to judge from past performances, Tobin
should bring honor to Fordham and '32.
But now for football. How shall we introduce the Juniors prominent in this Held of
activity? What shall we say of Bigjim Murphy, the Captain-elect of the football team,
and one of the highest scorers in the country?-ofjohnny Janis,Frank Merriwell in-
carnate?-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 Janis 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. ln 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 Bucknell game, Murphy
was responsible for one of 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
by Tony Siano deserves the lion's share. But we 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, are the achievements of the members of the Junior Class during the
scholastic year 1930-1931. Did we say the achievements? We should have said the
beginning of the achievements. The year is young yet. The one-act-play 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 ofthe honors.

The Sophomore Class

THE members of the Sophomore Class returned on September 15th. This is putting
it rather mildly. In truth,they strutted up the Elm-lined path and accorded each
fair tree a passing glance of complete and condescending patronage. They gazed on
the ivy-lined buildings with a paternal air of mortgage holders. They commented im-
portantly 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 day for
which the Upper Classmen had waited, arrived. The little caps looked more ill-fitting
than ever, the ties were especially ludicrous and the shiny buttons blazoned the Lower
Classmen all over the Campus. For a whole week the stirring Ram 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
ties of friendship between the Under Classes and effectually dispelled the newcomers'
fears of excessive hazing and horse-play. The period of transition soon passed over,
yet weof the Upper 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. . A

J But, alas for the new-found lordship of the Sophs, the Classes began, and with them
I li started the struggle with some of the most rigorous schedules of the course. Nothing
i daunted however, by the novel subject matter and the nearing threats of examinations,
3 the class found time to gain distinction in the sphere of college and Sophomore activ-
,li ities. The Class was accorded a novel and noteworthy treat in the renewal of the
A Q Sophomore "A" Academy under the experienced tutelage of Father Francis P. Don-
A nelly, Again the Varsity Play, this time the ever-engaging theatrical drama of
' "Trelawney of the Wells" found the Class well represented in the ranks of the college
fl i, Thespians. Chief among them were Edward Purcell's portrayal of the fading Mrs.
fl l Telfer,-Iohn S. Stella as the obsequious Captain dePhoenix,and the fine characteriza-
tions of Lawrence Ehrhart, and James F. McGrath. Then too, we have the unsung
Q heroes of backstage and scene shifting pursuits among whom the Sophs were help-
T fully present.
N With the advancing fall and the advancing steps of Fordham toward football glory,
the Class of '33 found places in the ranks that ably backed up the mighty Senior line
, and backfield. Chief among the Class gridders was the herculean Connie Murphy in
I the line. Then with the later advent of the court representatives of Coach Kelleher
3 the flashing play of Willie Putzer and Jerry Radice earned them places within the
.i inner ranks of the team and was the main cog in seeing the team through the re-
, ll markable metropolitan victories at the end of the season.
Naturally it would be strange to pass over the athletic distinctions of the Sopho-
l more class without some reference to its nationally known board-and-cinder pounder,
l 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 Intercollegiates
and the memorable evening of Match 7th saw the maroon-jerseyed runner outdistance
the fleetest of the collegians to flash home to a victory that also was the smashing of
T 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 are 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 Stella, and other budding
actors, who ably supplemented and rivalled the work of the predominant Upper
To turn to activities more essentially connected with the Class, the work of the
Hughes Debating Society during the past year has been excellent. The Holy Rosary
Sodality, too, has taken great strides forward in their service of the Queen, under-
taking active missionary and catechetical work in the lower city. The Forum of De-
'HOF FORD!-IAM' 1 11111 ll 1111
bate is under the able presidency of Edward A. Martin, while the Sodalityis governed
by Thomas V. O'Keefe, as prefect with Thomas Messick and Walter Lawlor as fel-
low officers. In these two activities the Sophs have had the able support of theFresh-
men even before the latters' emblems of servility, the hated caps and ties, had been
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 ofthe unprecedented annual. Again in the
establishment of the Chemistry Club, Francis P. Delaney was selected for officership,
while others were designated to posts as representative committeemen.
Back in the field of the nimrods and sharpshooters, we find Edward Flanagan gayly
destroying targets at the head of a deadly Soph team which has earned quite a reputa-
tion in the interclass tourney and against the many rivals on the schedule. In the
sonorous company of the basses and tenors of the Glee Club, we have James F. Mc-
Grath as soloist, along with other classmen of the gifted throats. I
The journalists and aspiring litterateurs of the year are included in the ranks of the
Ram, the foremost of whom are Frank Bauer, Vladimir Svitak, James E. Clark, John
F. Arens, Sylvester T. Cohane, and Michael Sheehan. All are in the editorial or
sports departments of the college weekly,while having eyes peeled for possibles in
Haywood Broun's column or the pages of McGeehan, 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. I
With the changes in the Fordham Monrlabf, 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 butget a brief glimpse of the members who are helping to keep the standards of
'33 flying, and yet not forget the efforts of very many others not mentioned whose
work in all fields has been untiring. All this has been done under the leadership of one
of the most popular of presidents, James E. Clark together with the Vice-President,
James J. Treacy, whose efforts in the oratorical contest won him unstinted praise.
The other oflicers include John Burke, Secretary, and Williamj. Moody, Treasurer.
In parting we wish to extend our 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, SJ., who has been the inspiration of the
whole book. To the incoming Seniors we wish success in the conclusion of their
courses and in their faint hopes of editing a better MAROON. And to the Freshmen,
our sincere hopes for their continued success-for we are broad-minded Sophomores.

LXTE September found a straggling, awe-struck band of exceedingly self-conscious
Freshmen gathered before the steps of the Auditorium. They huddled together
like so many frightened sheep, under the fierce and appraising eyes of the Sopho-
mores, their traditional rivals. Out of this confusion caused by 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 offi-
cially a part of the University. .
Later that day and for the few days immediately succeeding, gatherings were held
for the purpose of acquainting the Freshmen with the various activities of the Uni-
versity, 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 suspiciouslyreceived by the Freshmen. He explained that all the exer-
cises of the initiation, as imposed by the members of the Vigilance Committee, were
intended only for the benefit of the Freshmen and were meant only to weld them into
the spirit of Fordham. Accordingly the next few weeks were filled with novelty and
amusements Cfor the Upper-ClassmenD while the Sophs put their red-capped charges
through their paces. The campus resounded with inharmonious and ill-timed rendi-
tions ofthe pep songs and cheers.

This soon led up to the traditional series of athletic contests which were to de-
termine whether the Frosh could emancipate themselves from their bonds or not.
The tug-of-war came first. This the Frosh lost in an exceedingly long drawn out
battle after they had tied the count at one all. The track meet was held next and a fast
stepping Frosh track team raised the hopes of their classmates by a victory over the
Sophs. This left the swimming meet to decide the series. Alas-the poor Froshg 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 tie and going un-
The advent of October and the football season brought into the spotlight the achieve-
ments of a Frosh football team whose record was no less brilliant than that of Ford-
ham's famous varsity. They capped an undefeated season by defeating N. Y. U.'s
yearlings to the tune of 26 to O 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, star Frosh center, whom many excellent football
critics expect to fill the shoes ofthe All-American Captain Siano. McDermott, a back,
and Jim Doherty, end, revealed themselves as a forward-passing combination which
will bear plenty of watching when they don varsity uniforms. Johnny Del Isola, line-
backing fullback par excellence, Paul Howell, guard, as well as Santarpio and Brennan
should prove important cogs in Cavanaugh's machine when they come of age.
Track has as yet brought no great distinction to the Frosh, butjake Weber reports
that a great number of Yearlings are working out daily in the Gym, and that he ex-
pects great things from them in the future. jake also reports that the Cross-Country
squad is exceptionally large and abounding in fine material. Next year should see it
blossom forth with some noteworthy scores to svvell 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.
Jayvee and the N. Y. U. Frosh were all lost after the victory had really been won. Ed
Kelleher has much excellent material in the 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 through-
out the season. Gramala, a center built on the lines of Baker, should prove a valu-
able addition to Ed. Kelleher's varsity squad. Danny Williams has also done some
fine work at the pivot position. Pepper and Speckman, who played on the left side
of the court, have also done some fine work. White, Lobo,Walsh, Dranginis, Lynch,
and Mannix have given the spectators many thrills while filling in for the first
The Frosh have also distinguished themselves upon the Rostrum, the gifted oratory
of Messrs. Safarik,Scott, and'Appert having carried the day in a brilliant victory over

N. Y. U. We are given to understand that these gentlemen and many others make
things interesting by their fierce verbal battles in the weekly meetings of the Debat-
ing Society. F
Many Frosh names are also appearing in literary circles, with each succeeding issue
of the Ram and the Fordham Montbbf. The critical gift of Lawrence Leavey should
prove an invaluable addition to the Manthly. The graduation of the Class of '30 left
many vacancies on the Ram'.r 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. Ramey 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," Lanigan, red-headed State Golfing Champ, who last year led the Pre-
paratory team to victory over the varsity, isa member of the first division of the
The newly 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 activ-
ities of the college. We also hear good reports of them from the French, Spanish, and
Italian Clubs. '
The actors are at present busily preparing the parts which the playwrights have
written for them, and on the night of the one-act plays theylwill undoubtedly shine
forth in all the splendor of their buskins and trappings.
The passage of the year will soon make this year's Freshmang,Class a memory.
But time can not dim the lustre of the fame they have brought to Fordham.

:THE Parthenian Sodality of Fordham is venerable with years and traditions. It was '
established in 1837 in Kentucky and when the Jesuit fathers came to Fordham in ' fx if
1841,the Sodalitywas transferred hither, and has continued its existencewithoutinter- l
ruption up to the present day. A facsimile of the record of the first meeting held in i iw
old St. Mary's College in Kentucky on the 2nd of February, 1837, now adorns the
The roll-book on which the First name was written bears a list of members, com-
plete 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.
Oneof the many old customswhich still abound at Fordham is thatof holding May
Devotions at the foot ofthe statue ofOur Lady. Youthful voices are raised in a hymn
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.

HE Harvester Club is Fordham's contribution to the mission field participated in
Tby 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 Beglan, the club's activities have included
many and varied undertakings heretofore not entered upon by the Harvester Club.
During Fordham's eventful football season, acting upon the suggestion of its Presi-
dent, Angelo Badolato, the members provided a play-by-play description in the Recre-
ation Room of the Fordham-Detroit game direct from Detroit. The entire proceeds
were donated to the foreign missions. Also, for the first time, the society assumed the
mite box collection and the distribution of its proceeds to the needy mission colonies.
Literature of educational worth was gathered by the members from different schools
for thejesuit 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 history. The newly approved insignia is now the coveted possession of the senior

T.John Berchman's Sodality, by no means the oldest or most heralded of the campus
S 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 sacrihce. A desire to follow the divine model of
charity is their only motive. It prompts them to overcome whatever human weak-
nesses 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, ofliciated at the
Ceremony, with a student acting as Master of Ceremonies.
So much for this year's success. To those who have thus far so successfully advanced
the work of the Sodality, we 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."

f ms Benevolent Society, whose principal doctrine is to evince an abounding
Tcharity and unlimited good will, has witnessed the most successful year since its
inception at Fordham University. The members have with indefatigable zeal en-
deavored to fulfill the numerous duties that their membership necessarily incurred,
duties which required extreme sacrifice because of 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 assign-
ment of its members to Fordham Hospital and similar institutions often terminat-
ed 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 always accompanied these needed contributions and were fre-
quently followed by 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 efficient
and zealous work to effect the charitable end of the Society has inspired its members
to greater efforts in the relief of the sick and poverty-stricken.

PON the inception of the new year of activities the Sodality has inaugurated new
branches of influence, all of which have taken Hrm hold among the under-
graduates, and are well on their way to success.
Chief among the plans which have been put into effect is the arduous develop-
ment 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 Sodalityhas 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, SJ., who has taken up the position of moderator

HE present year has witnessed the coming of our new moderator. Father Cunning-
Tham, after having served faithfully and well in this capacity for many years, has
been called to other duties, and Father Lynch has succeeded him. The new Mod-
erator 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 move-
ment for Catholic lay action and leadership. Groups were formed, each with a differ-
ent purpose in view, and every sodalist was urged to identify himself with one of these
activities. One group engaged in welfare work, another in 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 Com-
munions 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
Fordham men for 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 are confident that the Sodality
in its new strength and vigor cannot fail to instil a great devotion for Mary in the
hearts of its members and to become a powerful factor in the spirituallife ofthe college.

l HE Council of Debate has passed another mile-stone in its glorious and useful
' history. After seventy-seven 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. Kohlbecker took over
the direction of theCouncil,replacingFatherWalsh.The retiringlvloderatorhadserved
with distinction for two years. The growth ofthe activities ofthe Lecture Groups as
l well as the formidable list of intercollegiate triumphs are due in a large part to his
l efforts. The Council is indeed fortunate in securing so able a successor in Mr. Kohl-
. The ofhcers for the present year are as follows: President, Mr. John Lane, Vice-
President, Mr. William Ciolkog Vice-President Emeritus, Mr. Thomas Ronan, Secre-
tary, Mr. Thomas Hurleyg Treasurer, Mr. John Hayesg Censor, Mr. Anthony Porcellig
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 lifteen debates with other institutions.
This year has marked an almost phenomenal growth in the activities of the Lecture
Groups. It is the object 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

New York, on topics of current interest. In this way a double purpose is achieved, on
the one hand, men are trained for Catholic leadership--on the other, the Catholic
public is better informed. The Lecture Groups have proven themselves extremely
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, '31, who spoke in that order. The Council, opposing
Unemployment Insurance, was awarded the decision after an interesting debate. Be-
cause of the efforts of the PublicityCommittee, a representative audience was present
and the Council was honored by the presence of a distinguished board of judges.
On the first trip of the present season a Varsity team traveled to Boston and Canisius
colleges. The Council was represented on this trip by Martin Tracey, '32, Bernard
O'Connell, '32, John Lane, '31. Boston college was met on February lst, the Council
speaking on the Elastic Clause of the Constitution. After an exciting debate and con-
siderable deliberation on the part of the judges, the decision was awarded to the
strong Boston College team. On the following evening, the team traveled to Buffalo,
where they spoke on the opposite side of the same question. They lost another close
decision, after an extremely well contested debate.
On Sunday afternoon, February lst, a team composed of Henry White, '32, James
Sullivan, '32, and Patrick Crowley, '32, met the Holy Cross team in the college
auditorium before a large crowd. The Council team spoke against the entrance of the
United States into the World Court under the terms of the Root Protocol. Holy Cross
was awarded the decision of the judges after a splendid debate.
Several excellent speakers will be lost this year through graduation but there are
many other prominent members ready to till the vacated positions and to maintain
the high standard of Fordham debating.

THE Hughes Debating Society, composed of Freshman and Sophomore debaters,
enjoyed an unusually successful year.Weekly debates within the Society provided
ample opportunity for all members to take active part, and the eloquence and logic
displayed in these debates indicated a high grade of forensic attainment throughout
the entire membership. q
The Society also engaged in several intercollegiate contests. A Sophomore team
made up of Edward A. Martin, John Leibfred and Frank Bauer met Sophomore teams
from Boston College and Holy Cross. The question debated was the popular one of
Unemployment Insurance. Both contests were held away. The Fordham team gained
the decision at Boston, and dropped by a close margin the debate with Holy Cross.
Other active and talented Sophomore debaters were Thomas O'Keefe and Robert
Malone. All these men should see some intercollegiate service with the Council of
Debate in their next two years at Fordham.
The Society was also ably represented by a Freshman team. It gained victories
over Freshman teams from Princeton, Loyola of Baltimore and Rutgers. A "no-
decision" contest was held with New York University. St. Peters College and
Georgetown received a decision over the Fordham team in debates which were held
at Newark and Washington. The quality of the Freshman members assures continued
success for the Society next year.
The most popular questions debated within the Society during the year were: Un-
employment Insurance, the World Court, Prohibition, Free Trade and the Seating of
Senators in the United States Senate.

on six years now, an institution of Fordham has been functioning in a quiet but
effective way. It is appropriately called the "Quill Club."
On many 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 neces-
sary 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 forg it maintains for the more experienced one, a strict
standard and a convenient check on any lapses of technique which may creep into his
work. Many a fine story printed in the Monthly owes its origin and excellence to the
eHorts of the Quill Club.
The importance of such an institution cannot be overemphasized and it deserves the
Commendation and praise of all who have the interests of Fordham at heart. Is it not
a worthy thing to foster the priceless spirit of true literature and by so doing build a
monument to Fordham and all it stands for? This is the true aim of the Quill Club and
it is incumbent upon its members to maintain, as they have, a loftiness of spirit and
independence of mind which is the mainstay of the writers of true literature.

ms 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 "Thcspis" 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 Lytton's poetic drama, "Richelieu" was selected by the
Moderator, Mr. Glenn Walsh, SJ., as the subject for 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 his splendid characterization of "Francis."
The Freshman One-Act Play contest followed this Varsity presentation in the spring
of 1928. Each member of the Freshman Class hopefully submitted a play to the govern-
ing board for their examination. The best plays submitted were then selected for
actual presentation. "The Game of Chess," a playlet written by Jerome Amante 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. I-Ieinbuch, was awarded second prize. Thomas Waldie received
second honors for acting in his characterization in "The Departure," John Lanes con-
tribution 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" by Shakespeare, as out 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 eyes 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 Wil-
liam O'Donnell manifested exceptional artistic abilityin 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. His portrayal of Lorenzo received the approval and
praise of the audience. Thomas Waldie deservedly won the applause of his observers
in the part of "Nerissa." William Ciolko, assigned to play the part of Launcelot,
succeeded admirably in the portrayal of a diflicult 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 hnal
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 of his class.

Our Senior year arrived.The Senior members of the Mimes and Mummers anxiously
awaited the decision of the 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 for
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 Waldie 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
Trelawny 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'Donahue, Philip Ryan, Vincent Carlin,
Thomas Waldie, and Bernard McKernan, all members ofthe Class of '31, participated
in the various plays presented. Vincent Carlin 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
been impossible. To Mr. William J. Kelly,S.J., Mr. James T. Breen, Mr. J. Gerard
Cregan, who unselfishly gave their time and ability and under whose dramatic
guidance the society has successfully progressed, we are sincerely grateful.

TIAIE Fordham Mozztbbf, one ofthe oldest and most influential of our college organ-
izations, has 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 Monrlab has kept apace-not remaining tied to
the post of tradition but adopting the changing moods best suited to reflect the feel-
ings of the times. Nor yet has it been flying before the Wind, it has remained an-
chored by a due regard for solid principles and high ideals. It is our fond pleasure to
believe that, in this, our year, The Fordham Monrbbf has continued along its course in
the same glorious fashion which has marked its path during all its life.

The personnel for the year 1930-31 was for the most 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 bits of excellent poetry. They carried on the great tradition of
the Montlaly. As for the prose-William C. Cusack and Nelsonj. Edge have as capably
performed. The former was the author of many delectable short stories and 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 by William O.
McCue, whose wit is equally appreciated by both the readers of the Monthly and the
Rom. The "Theatre" was conducted by Peterj. Cusack, who reviewed current plays
At the beginning of the year a general revision of the form of the magazine was put
into effect. A new cover, featuring the tower of the 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 essays have been com-
mended for their appropriateness.
The members of the staff will best remember the Monthly as the medium of forming
many 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 young author has received just that amount of assistance
to further him in the art of writing.

I pression to his efficiency and enterprise. In addition to the ordinary duties of his post I
as News Editor, Mr. Low conducted "The Interview," the newly inaugurated column
g of the Ram. Faithful and competent,he handled both positions admirably. I
Edward P. Ricca displayed really remarkable acumen in his ofiice of Managing I

which have attracted so much praise in college circles, is directly attributable to y
Mr. Ricca. y 1
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 the Ram. I f
To William O. McCue we are indebted for another year of that delightful humor in r I

Angelo D. Badolato was Reference Editor, with the important duty of keeping a I
record of the activities of everyone and everything. The ingenious filing system which
he arranged will be of inestimable value to the Ram for many years to come. I I
john F. McManmon, Philip Ryan, and Edward McGrath were the special corre- 1
spondents of the Ram. They excelled in their department. Mr. McManmon and Mr. I
Ryan handled the news "scoops," each with his own individual style, but both had
the sure touch of newspaper men. Mr. McGrath, the sports specialist, could treat his I
to Fordham. And it is but just, that these men receive recognition. Hidden in 1
their office, they have labored diligently for four years, hiding their own light under I
stories with that deftness so necessary in his work.

T 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 mem-
bers ofthe Glee Club are 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. Farley, 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 efiicient leadership that the many audiences have been able to
enjoy the true melodious effects of a skilfully conducted male chorus.
1 'wi W Cl F FO RD H A M 'G W
The members of the Board of Directors, especially its Chairman, John E. Kelly, '31,
are to be praised for their competent management of the Glee Club affairs. To John
E. Kelly are to be credited twofold honors, inasmuch as he also has been Tenor
Soloist. lt was his golden voice that touched the heart strings of the audiences the
Club hashad for the last three years.
The Glee Club began its season by singing the Mass of the Holy Ghost. Other
appearances, in order, were at the Carroll Club, Good Counsel College, College of
Mount Saint Vincent, Holy Name of Mary Rectory, Croton-on-Hudson, Holy Cross
Academy, Harrison, N. and Georgian Court College in Lakewood, N. Those
chosen to participate in the Intercollegiate Glee Club Contest duly accredited them-
selves as worthy of ranking among thc select.
The outstanding event of the season was the Annual Town Hall Concert, which was
offered to one of the largest and most appreciative audiences the Club has had the
pleasure of appearing before. The committee in charge of this Concert was under the
Chairmanship of Angelo C. Badolato, '31 ,who was so ably assisted by Charles A.
McAloon, '31, Frederick G. Helbig, '31, Charles G. Nagel, '31, Edwardj. Tirdel, '32,
and James V. Halloran, '32. Following close on this Concert, the Club appeared at
the Rye Neck High School in Mamaroneck, N. Y. The National Broadcasting Com-
pany's WEAF Studio next harbored the members in a nationalbroadcast from that
station. Ozone Park, L. I. was the next appearance.
And so,with an expression that comes forthwith no mean effort those members of
the Glee Club of the Class of '31 bid adieu to the fond acquaintances made while par-
taking of so artistic an endeavor as the art of music.

Tis the pioneer language club of the campus, being founded live years ago by Mr.
Charles Hausman, S. J. 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 "Le Rayon
du Cercle 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.

THE year 1930-31 marks the third in the existence of the Spanish Club of St.,Iohn's
College, Fordham University.
The purpose of the club is to aid its members in the conversational use ofthe Spanish
tongue-an asset not to be scorned, to encourage interest in Spanish literature, and in
the reading of the best Spanish authors.
The past scholastic year was noteworthy in the annals of the club for the publica-
tion of an annual, the first in the history of the Club. It consisted of a section given
over to a series of articles on the Spanish-speaking countries ofthe world headed by a
word of greeting from members of the diplomatic corps of those countries.
Interesting talks were delivered throughout the year by prominent Spanish-speaking
personages, among whom was the eminent Dr. Bueno y Medina, Professor of Lan-
guages at San Bartolome College, Bogota, Columbia, a member of the Royal Spanish

1. Circolo di Cultura Italiana" is a comparatively newly organized modern lan-
guage 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
Rcv.Dcmetrius 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 ofthe organiza-
tion is to foster a genuine interest in the wide-spread and mind-nurturing Italian cul-
ture. Its secondary purpose is to enable its members to acquire fluency in the conversa-
tional use of Italian. Meetings are held weekly at which time a member reads a paper
or talks on some phase of Italian culture which he has previously prepared. The mem-
bers 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 non-
member address the Club.
During the year there are given, under the supervision of the organization, several
social affairs, at which it is customary to have some well-known speaker preside.

HE Mendel Club was founded ten years ago at the instigation of the Rev. G. A.
TCaballero, 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 knowl-
edge of biology. In cases where student experimentation would prove impractical and
inadvisable, the members of the organization have as their source of knowledge the
library 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 are assigned to the members, based on inter-
esting biological questions. These are read at the meetings and the writers are
questioned. This procedure is varied by having some prominent lecturer in biology
address the Club.
Recently the Club 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 ofthe 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

ONTINUING the success of the previous year when it was initiated and firmly estab- I ,
C lished under the excellent guidance of Howard A. Seitz, '30, the Brooklyn-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 activi-
ties last fall, offers proof of the healthy 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. ln this gorgeous setting, in harmony with the
delightful music by Bert Lown and His Victor Recording Artists, a host of Fordham
men and their friends rallied in joyful celebration. The smooth efficiency of the Com-
mittee and itsChairman, Gerardj. Griffin, '31, was evidentinevery detailoftheevent.
When the organization was begun, its purpose was to foster a closer bond of friend-
ship between the graduates and undergraduates who live in Brooklyn and Longlsland.
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.

'gl fi INCE the Massachusetts Club was established in our Freshman Year, the Class of
X S 1931 is proud of the success which the Club has attained. Though one of the
youngest of the State Clubs at Fordham, it has steadily increased in prestige and
p widened its sphere of influence in campus affairs.
ll Its purpose, as is that of the other State Clubs, is to foster a strong bond of good-
fellowship among the student body from that state and to bring the Alumni from
Q Massachusetts into closer contact with the undergraduates and the University.
l Among the Senior members ofthe Club who have distinguished themselves in other
1 activities are many football men-Captain "Tony" Siano, Miskinis, I-lolmberg,
McMahon, and Elcewicz all being "Mass" men.
The Annual Easter Dance held at the Copley-Plaza Hotel in Boston in 1930 exceeded
all expectations. Under the capable general chairmanship of Timothy A. O'Leary, Ir.,
'31 and committee chairmen James A. Crane, '32, Leoj. Zilg, '31, Oscar Holmberg,
'31 and Edward Murrman, '31, the dance was the most successful social affair ever
conductedlin the history of the Club. The Annual Winter Dance of this year was also
a social and financial success.
The Club extends its sincere thanks to its Moderator, the Rev. Charles Deane,
SJ., for the interest he has shown in the development of the Club.

of the success it has attained must be credited to its Moderator, the Rev. Dean.
Two formal dances were held this year, one at Christmas in Bridgeport, and one at
Easter in Waterbury. Both were unprecedented social and linancial successes.

A Forty-second Street Ferry, arrived, the members seem to lose a bit of their enthu-
siasm, 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 cry
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 its way to meeting.
Inside,President Torn 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.
Presently jim Lillis, subbing for Nelson Edge, writes into the minutes the confirma-
tion of "Mads" 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 Fordham's calendar, and a brilliant success in
every respect! Congratulations to the Committee and the Club!
The oflicers and the members of the Club deserve much credit for the enthusiasm and
interest they have shown for the advancement of the organization. Year by year the

oun years ago, a small group of sturdy Pennsylvanians organized a club in order to
Ffurther the spirit of friendship and loyalty to Fordham during their student days,
and to bind themselves in after years by means of their pleasant associations, into a
loyal Alumni. y
That they have been eminently successful is evidenced not only by the increased
number of members, but by the exceptionally colorful dances that have been held in
their name. With characteristic individuality, the Club this year conducted a highly
successful affair at the Redington 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 meas-
ure 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.
We 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.

on many years the desire to band together has been suppressed in the hearts of all
FUpstaters. It remained for one of us who came from a small town near the State
Capitol to take the initiative. To Mr.James S. Millea is attributed the honor ofhaving
founded the Upstate Club of New York in September, 1930. Fordham 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 ofthe 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 in the upper regions of the Empire State. The 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. Millea, who was Chairman of the
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 leadershipg upon their
successors falls the weighty burden of guiding to maturity the work which they were
privileged to begin. They have shown their ability, and the present enthusiasm of its
members augurs well for the future.

ms club is unique onthe campus in that it has as eligible members only the thirty
Tstudents in the advanced R. O. T. C. course and it is a striking proof of its popular-
ity 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 Academyat
West Point. Colonel Jay P. Hopkins and Captain Napoleon Boudreau have accom-
panied the men on the trips 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 Fordham students dined at the oflicers mess and were admitted as ob-
servers to several of the regular classes. And finally, of course, came the superb "pa-
rade," 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 by
the Reserve Odicers 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 oflicers of these regi-
ments and perhaps decide to join one outfit or the other, which is frankly the purpose
of the dinner. These afliliations as well as the fact that alumni are considered active
members, tend to keep the club united even after graduation.

T is generally believed that the appeal of a football game lies not so much in the game
I itself but in the colorful spectacle that is built around the game, and the organiza-
tion of any college that lends a great deal of this color, is the band. This year the best
band in Fordham's history crossed barons with the bands from N. Y. U., Boston Col-
lege, and Bucknell, and emerged second to none. It proved itself to be one of the best
in the East, from a musical standpoint, and in matters of marching and dress it cer-
tainly 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
The Senior Class was well represented in the band: Zilg, Porcelli, St. John, Pisani,
Dursi, Clear, Gatti,Waldie, Berger, Silliere, 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. i

The Maroon Eleven opened the season with a
smashing victory over the University of Bal-
timore team before a capacity crowd in the new
Fordham Field. Scoring eleven touchdowns and
adding seven additional points, the varsity be-
wildered 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 the line nor through the air could they
avail and did not succeed in gaining a single first
down. During their drives the Maroon ball-car-
riers made a total of 23 first
downs and were never
obliged to kick.
jim Murphy, Maroon

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-O victory over the gridsters from the Univer-
sity of Buffalo. With the record of the previous
season carried over, the game marked the elev-
enth 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 team. With Murphy and
Janis leading the backfield 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 at the half
by 33-O, the Maroon opened
W a withering onslaught with
Janis, Murphy and Piecu-
lewicz running wild behind
perfect interference from
their mates. Pieculewicz,
taking a punt, ran 85 yards
for a touchdown in this

In a game played under the most fatiguing atmos-
pheric conditions, conditions more suitable for
baseball or golf, the Fordham Football team de-
feated the Boston College Eleven at Boston be-
fore 30,000 fans by a 3-0 score. The victory came
in the last 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
the last quarter, Johnny
Janis crashed the Eagle line
for the gains which put
Bartos in position to make
his sensational score.
In this game the Maroon
punting had its first test of
the season, with Bartos and
Tracey performing nobly.

In the second major contest of the season, the
Maroon Eleven traveled to Worcester and by the
slim margin of one touchdown defeated the Cru-
saders of Holy Cross College. It was the second
successive victory for Fordham over their Massa-
chusetts rivals and it gave the winners the edge in
the long series between the colleges.
A touchdown by Jim Murphy in the first
quarterdecided the game. Following an exchange
of punts the Maroon marched down the field to
the 9-yard line on runs by Bartos, McMahon and
Murphy. With the ball finally on this stripe
Bartos tossed a pass to Murphy, who raced around
the Purple right end for the score.
Holy Cross made a strong
advance in the final quarter
and threatened to upset the
fine record of the Maroon
team. Led by that splendid

The most important victory of the season came
to the Maroon when they met the New York
University Eleven in the Yankee Stadium before
a crowd of 75,000 fans. Scoring in the first quarter
on a line plunge byjim Murphy, the Maroon de-
fense stopped the Violet backs for the remainder
of the afternoon and Fordham won the annual
Metropolitan Classic by a 7-O score.
The lone score of the afternoon came after but
a few moments of play in the opening quarter.
Pete Wisniewski had opened the game with a
fine kickoff and N. Y. U. returned the ball to the
20-yard. The Violet tried the Maroon line twice
but could not gain. Then on the third play, the
Violet center passed the ball
over Marshall's head and
after a feverish scramble,
Adam Elcewicz, the Maroon
right end, snared the ball on
the 4-yard line. On the first
Fordham play, Jim Murphy
took the ball through the
Violet line for the touch-
down. Pete Wisniewski
kicked the point.

Without the services of Jim Murphy, who was
injured in the N.Y. U. game, the Fordham Eleven
defeated the Mountaineers from West Virginia
University by 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.
Johnny Janis proved a capable substitute for
Murphy. With the aid of the fast charging Ma-
roon 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 by McMahon.
The Fordham Line met a stubborn foe in John-

against the big Maroon

The Fordham Football team won its seventh
straight game when it defeated the Titans of De-
troit 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 Ma-
roon score of the afternoon. But even then victory
seemed beyond the Maroon's grasp when Wis-
niewski missed the try for the extra point. '
With the score 7-6, and
the minutes flying by, the
Maroon began to fight hard.
Down the field they went,
the backs gaining on every
play behind an aggressive
line. Finally, Jack Fisher

Fordham met defeat for the first time in two sea-
sons 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 byjanis 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 al-
most certain for Fordham. The Maroon Eleven
outplaycd the Gaels during the Hrst half and it
appeared that the final score would be substan-
tially in theirfavor. Even when the Westerners had
scored one touchdown and again another, mak-
ing the score 14-12, the pic-
ture did not look so black
for an Eastern victory.

The Varsity Eleven closed the season with an
impressive victory over the team from Bucknell
University. The contest, won by Fordham by the
score of 12-O, marked the close of the intercol-
legiate football careers of eight of the Maroon's
stars of the past three seasons. The men who
have played together since their Freshman year
made an impressive record for their Alma Mater
during their last two seasons, winning fifteen
games, tying two, and losing only to St. Mary's
This final contest of the season was an easy vic-
tory for the Maroon, Janis and Murphy scoring
the two touchdowns and the line checking the
attempts of Hinkle and the
other Bucknell backs to gain.
The men who played their

The Fordham 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 of these engagements.
The efforts of the Maroon Nine to defeat her traditional baseball rivals, Holy Cross.
Boston College, and New York University were in part 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, result-
ing 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 be met on the trip was the team of Princeton Uni-
versity, 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 re-
pulsed by a strong Villanova team. Neil Andrews was on the mound for Fordham but

due to the fact that the Maroon sluggers were tamed by I-lillen, the New Yorkers went
on to Temple on the short 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 pro-
ceeded to outplay their hosts, and behind the hne hurling of Andrews won the game,
3-2. Sabatini, Aube, and Maynard led the Maroon batters, each accounting for two
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 live
runs in the early innings. Jim Comerford was on the mound for the Maroon and pitched
a fine game.
The team was scheduled to play two games in New York after their return from the
Southern trip. These contests were washed out 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
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 hve 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 by Laborne 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 hits and three runs while the Maroon batters gathered fifteen hits and crossed
the plate nine times. Behind the twirling of Pat Foley, 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 Fordham
Field, the Maroon held the lead for seven innings but 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. Bonaventure and Yale were tamed by the Maroon Nine in April. Jim Comerford
pitched the Fordham team to a 10-6 win over the Saints and Neil Andrews stopped the
Eli team by a count of 3-1.
On May 1 the Rams reversed a decision held over them by the Villanova team. Com-
erford pitched and held the Owls to five hits, while his mates gathered six hits off the
tosses of Hillen. Fordham won the game by a score of 4-2.
The first New York University game was a victory for the Maroon, as Andrews
baffled the Violet sluggers, allowing them six hits,while the Maroon, batters gathered
thirteen hits. Fordham won the game 10-3. On Decoration Day, the Violet took the
second contest played on Fordham Field, 9-6.
After winning from St. John's by 4-3, the Army marred the Annual West Point trip
for the Maroon team by defeating them 7-3.

Good teams area habit at Fordham and the club of 1930-31 proved no exception. Its
crushing victories over Yale and Pennsylvania opened the season most auspiciously
and served to 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 ofthe
Coach Kelleher 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 theVarsity
to extend itsclf to assure victory. Syracuse, playing
brilliantly, was the winner all the way through. The
varsity never did really threaten, though their perse-
vering attempts to lessen the gap which the Orangemen
opened at the start of the game were deserving of real
praise. Because of this hght, the Maroon made quite a
contest out of an "on night" for the Salt City College.
The Colgate game in many respects resembled the pre-
vious struggle. Although in this case the defeat was not
so cleat cut, nevertheless both Maroon teams played fine
ball, featuring many fine shots. The Ram was close to
winning this one, but all their skill availed not against

found itself involved in a conflict of dates, but Fordham removed this 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 Lowry.
The battle of Gettysburg ended with theMaroon banner waving on high. TheRam,

Forclham,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 Fordham, 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 Lafayette.
Remembering well the one point loss of the previous season, Fordham was most
anxious to subdue the Lavender, a team always diflicult 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 yet lost. 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 tied. The wild throng anticipated an extra
period. It was at this juncture that the big standing guard Parker, with stoical calm-
ness made good the foul try which won the game for Fordham. jerry Radice in this
game rose to rare heights by his very timely baskets and the deadly accuracy of his
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 estate 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. U. tied the score. From then on
the game was nip and tuck, every point scored by 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 of play. Radice again played the
stellar role. His follow-up shots often stirred his fellowplayers to still greater efforts.
Babe Hurley was not far behind in the matter of points scored, while on the floor he
completely outplayed the much-heralded I-lugret.
The wind-up encounter with Columbia was a return engagement. The Maroon, eager
to continue their winning streak and thereby top off a hne 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 al-
most perfect. His baskets, moreover, kept Fordham easily in therunning. At standing
guard John Conroy was noteworthy, and as a result, the Eastern League leaders found
themselves abruptlychecked time and again. For as the seasonwaned, John had devel-
oped 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 throes ofa losing
streak was able to 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
mighty and formidable foe.
To this team, then, our praise is due. To win when it is easy to do so is wholly
naturalg 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 by necessity, and Red Weiss, the freckled forward. Too, Bill Putzer and john
Conroy 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 of 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 his "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
Conroy. John displaced Parker at the standing guard post by virtue of long range shots.

By so doing he 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, while at the same time it encourages the fellow players. Willie
Putzer, the finished floorman, played good basketball all season. His steadying influ-
ence,his basketball sense saved manyabad situation for Fordham. Billwas imperturb-
able and this quality is rare in the heat of game. Never did Bill waste a shot on a
B I I
foolish attempt, never did he lose possession of the ball by a wild heave, rather he X
preferred to bide his time and then make the most of it. Mulligan, Parker, and Hayes Q
all belong in the same category. Brilliant but erratic typifies their game. Mulligan, X
except for the early games in which he shone, did not live up to his previous year's H X
promise. Hayes, however, came along well near the end and much is expected of him l X
next year. Of Parker little need be said. His ability is too well established to be wg
doubted. That he slumped is admitted, that he is a great player and will continue to be ' N
one, follows from 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. T N
To the team of 1930-31, then, much praise and glory is due. Though not as success- W
ful in point of games won as other great teams have been, theirs is the peculiar glory l
of the lighting team that has overcome something greater than other teams, a losing ip 3
streak resulting from an unusual combination of inopportune bad breaks, of fatigue X' '
and of some natural discouragement. A great team is one that can come back, that
can overcome this mental handicap. Such a team was ours, and they will be remem- ii
bered 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 l i
hardest and the outlook blackest-they were the team that came back!

At the outset of the 1930-31 season Fordham's track outlook was certainly dark.
Of last year's relay team which had taken sixteen prizes during the indoor season,
alone, there was not a man left, Captain Simons, Farley, and Denzer having graduated,
and Captain-elect Ray Hurley unable to compete due to an unfortunate illness. The
men remaining from last year's squad were Felix Larkin,'31, who was appointed
captain in place of Ray Hurley, Bob Coburn, '32, Joe Smith, '32, Joe McCluskey, '33,
our Freshman sensation of the previous season, and Jerry McGrath, '33. On the
shoulders of these men rested the responsibility of providing a relay team equal to the
- 3 ' high standard established by the 1929-30 quartet. How
ik 1 well they have succeeded is a matter of record. They
A have scored a place in every meet entered and bid fair to
f' make Fordham men forget about teams of the past.
L Individual performances of note were scored by Carl

The Tennis Team
Fordham has 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 by rain.
The burden of carrying on fell on the shoulders of the two veterans of the year before,
Capt. Vic Brady and Tom 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-
Closkey, McDonald, Ostrofsky and Purcell. In the Eastern Inter-Collegiate tourna-
ment the team received a high ranking. At the close of the season Tom Cahalan, '30,
now Law, '33, was elected captain and George Scholze playing manager-.
The prospects for the 1931 season appear very bright. The team is an experienced
one and a pre-season judgment indicates that Manhattan, N. Y. U., Columbia, Army
and St. 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 teamsmatches,
vue wish them success.

Hail the champions of the Second Corps area! Which means that our own Fordham
Rifle Team ranks first among the R. 0. T. C. teams of New York,New ,Iersey,Penn-
sylvania, 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 hfth, which is not so bad
for a national match! And then, in the Outdoor Metropolitan Championship Match
at Peekskill, 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 any experience with the
.30 calibre army rifle. This strikingly attests to the soundness of the team's instruction
in the gallery rifle by Coach Sergeantjoseph I-1. Smith, U. S. A.

Under the guidance of Coach Creedon, a former quarter-back and captain ofthe
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 representa-
tive schedule which would establish the rating of the embryonic eleven.
The game with Lafayette showed the Fordham eleven quite strong, for the oppo-
nents were apparently a well-coached team. C. C. N. Y. proved an easy victim. In the
game with Samueljohnson, 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. Y. U. "Frosh," some-
what 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. Cap-
tain 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 25 Lafayette Freshman 7
Fordham Freshmen 46 C. C. N. Y. Jr. Varsity O
Fordham Freshmen 30 Samuel johnson Academy O
Fordham Freshmen 27 N. Y. U. Freshmen O

Freshman Track .
In the only meet of the season the Freshmen bowed by a close margin to the har-
riers ofCity College. Many promising runners were uncovered in the squad during the
season and there are hopes for an unusually fast group of varsity men for next year.
With thellargest 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 Fresh-
men working out under the expert guidance of-lake Weber. Such a condition is almost
a sure sign of a revival in track at Fordham. Candidates were recruited from the un-
beaten Frosh football squad in the persons ofjim Couhig, Santarpio, Del Isola, and
"Red" Keenan, and from the class as a whole, Mulvihill,John McCluskey, Hogan,
Matthews, McG1ade, Lowe, Rogers, Dolan, Godfrey, Leary, Murphy, Lofurno,
Lehman, and DeFabio. With a squad so willing and hard working, and with coaching
as onlyjake 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, McCluskey, Mulvihill, Hogan, and Leary were middle distance men. Del
Isola, Rogers, Matthews, Dolan, Lofurno, Matthews, and Lowe were active in the
sprints. Donald Waldie took care of the men as manager.
Q i,22lE,f'ftfvi af If MWA aff:
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 scintil-
lating stars as Fleming, Lynch, Pavlicovic, and Pepper immediately attain prominence.
These men played well, indicating real promise, even in defeat. Though their efforts
were necessarily individualistic, due to the limited time Coach Kelleher could spare
from his big team, nevertheless they won many contests. This proof of their natural
ability is indisputable.
The guards cn the club were Pepper and Pavlicovic, both versatile athletes. These
football men are destined to uphold a Fordham tradition that the guards should be
football men. Cf the two, Pavlicovic is the more spectacular due to his flair for shoot-
ing accurately from the most unorthodox positions. At center, the Weak spot of the
varsity, Hurley being rightly a forvvard, 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 shifted to forward. Gramala and
Lynch, both fine players, easily met the demand for a tall center. Gramala, a man who
knows how to iight for the ball, uses his height to advantage. Lynch is the most im-
proved 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.

fellow stewdents, that we affectionately dedicate this volume to that noble group of
men pictured below, to wit and viz., those professors who have only the interests of
the students at heart.
They will go down in history as the originators of the phrase, "They shall not pass!"
You are about to leave Alma Mater. Will you close the door? Remember that many
a stray cat has found its way into the Dean's office because of open doors. Men of
Fordham, when you go into the world, FRAME your diplomas. Don't carry them under
your arms. That retards freedom of motion and induces apathetic desuetude. And
don't wear your CAPS and GOWNS to BALL GAMEs. You may be mistaken for ushers.
Be polite to both BROTHER AND UNCLE. But REMEMBER, a gorilla can probably lick
them both. Remember, too, that nothing succeeds like success. If your name isn't
success, change it. If you don't you'll be left in the LURCH. And some lurches are
particularly hard to get out of. NEVER END SENTENCES WITH PREvos11'1oNs. Begin at
There is plenty of room at the top.
There is plenty of room in the middle.
There is plenty of room at the bottom.

"Sic Transit Gloria Mundi"
ATID 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 there
with your hands in your pockets utterly oblivious to your surroundings. Let us answer
their difficulties in 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 see, by the simple means of an argumentum ad hominem we leave them up a tree.
As for the second argument advanced by our adversaries we chop that tree from under
them by merely asking, "Aren't the volumes of Chaucer that we 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 ofthe ugly rumors that
filled the air, left the gates unlocked. On the surface this act seemed of little con-
sequence, but ah me, it has taken this knowledge foundry 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 has grown with the years. For four long, dark, and often-
times discouraging years, a furious faculty labored diligently to remove the blot from
the fair 'scutcheon of Alma Mater, and the fruits of their labors are 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 safely restrained behind the
bars of one or the other of the state asylums. In other words, we get out this year
to the profound relief of the professorial personnel, and the future once again takes on
a rosy hue for Universitas Fordhamensis.
We struggled through Freshman for the want of something better to do.
We groped our way into and out of Sophomore. It was during this year that we, in a
spirit of deep humility and self sacrifice, decided to forego our periodic dances and,
drawing up countless resolutions, renounced forever this Satanic form of diversion
and entertainment. So salutary was the effect of this experiment, so noble in purpose,
that it was immediately taken up by other schools in this section of the country and
111 11111 1 II MARO-ON vvv
now one may, lacking the price of a taxi, walk the entire length of Bagdad-on-the-
Subway and not see a single dance gyrating. They run them in pairs now to accommo-
date the crowd.
Next we stumbled into Junior. We had to, Sophomore had just passed and Senior
Wasn't due for another year.
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 wraith-like individuals summoned up enough strength to prove in syllogis-
tic form, that the rabble was nothing more nor less than the remnants of the Class of
'31 come back 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.
But there is a consolation in this, that after all we have been through, life cannot
possibly hold further terrors for us.With our diploma tucked safely under our arm the
door of opportunity is open to us, the future lies before us, and there are plenty of
employment agencies on Sixth Avenue.
We did our best to please,
We are a bunch of bachelors
With bachelors degrees.
Sing ye a song of nonsense,
While us boys make our bow,
So long, dear Alma Mater,
We gotta leave you now.

oM1No 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. Shufiling 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 diflicult ever undertaken by a team here at old Rose Hill. Dick Mobey,
universally acclaimed as the best right finesse east of the Rocky Mountains, played his
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
The games were' so well attended that it is probable the gate receipts will be suf-
ficiently 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 thatjack Bicycle,
Fordham's premier coach, was the hrst 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 shape for the coming campaign by practicing sleight of hand

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 HOCKeying.
Uncle Ben declared himself pleased with the result of this year's work and antici-
pates an even bigger year next year. He has already made arrangements to have his
three balls regilded.
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 im-
mediately set in. The girls wanted the negative, and when they found they couldn't
have it they began to sulk, pout, whimper and cringe. Our boys retaliated by tracking
mud all over the living room floor and 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 by 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 of there being a debating team next year.
The Glee Club was composed 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 slip-
ping 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 body threvvepilep-
tic fits. The fits were thrown with wreckless abandon and narrowly missed striking
two visitors from out of town. Next year all fit throwing will be done on the compara-
tive safety of the football field.

GF AN IDEAL
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. Drescher,
and the Business Manager, Mr. Timothy A. O'Leary, Jr., they
have produced a book of which they may well be proud. We
feel sure that you who turn these pages and re-live the events
of the year just concluded, will join us in congratulating them.
2 In our humble capacity as pub-
lishers, it has been a privilege to be associated with the pro-
duction of this book. Perhaps we 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 per-
9 We are justly proud of the con-
Hdence gdaced in our abihty to produce a book in keeping
with the ideals of the staff and school which sponsor it. We
earnestly hope that this feeling of confidence will persist, and
that ir will be our privilege to place the facilities of our or-
ganization at the service of the yearbook staff of Fordham
University through successive years. y
