FOR REFERENCE O' I▼ FORDHAM COLLEGE THE NINETEEN HUNDRED AND THIRTY THREECOPYRIGHT 19 3 3 AMBROSE J. HARTNETT FDITOR IN CHIEF MICHAEL J. CTRUZZI BUSINESS MANAGER T HE 19 3 3Lj irA T O Thf. Very Rev. Harold Mulqueen, S.J., whose sympathetic understanding, loyal support and firm guidance of the men of ’33 have characterized him as the Seniors' friend, in sincere and grateful appreciation we dedicate this Yordham Maroon of nineteen hundred and thirty-three. D E D I C RFOREWORD tOUR years ago as Freshmen we unobtrusively slipped up the winding, green-el med path of lord ham University seeking a k non ledge which only Ford ham could impart. Today, men of the class of we walk, down that same path, shoulders square, eyes bright, and step firm. Characters shaped by a mould whose dimensions are the dimensions of Ford ham University, we face the world, ready to conquer, win i ictory for ourselves, and glory for our Alma Mater. Our undergraduate days have been ones of value and profit, replete with all the joy and happiness surrounding the gay brotherhood of Old Rose Hill. That these memories may ever be vibrant within ns and never fade with the passing of years is the sole purpose of this volume. As a final manifestation of loyalty and tribute to our Alma Mater, we select as our theme the lofty traditions of Ford ham University, traditions that link the old to the new, the Rose Hill of yore to the might) and magnificent Ford ham of today.IN MEMO ILIAM John F. Heffernan Cornelius J. Murphy John F. Murphy Edwin J. Spelman I oseph L. HooperO 2 - M±kI c oft The Fordham Bun JT is declared that traditions rest upon trivial things. But who dares call that endless array of pink and powdered pastry a memory of no consequence? As they marched forth, year after year, clad in stainless napkin, their coming was the solitary, cheery break in the penitential fast from twelve to seven. Students in short pants and students in sideburns, they rushed forth welcoming this four P.M. relief. Daily were great ambitions renewed of becoming a campus officer that one might dip a leisurely hand and draw forth one of the few favorites that wallowed in their extra, golden glory of butter. As for now, they must needs hie away to the realms of Brother Hooley and there defy all dietary edicts by burying creamy chocolates in the cakery and devouring forthwith. This tradition that saw birth in many kitchens of Rose Hill, noiv is gone. But some Ford-hdm men can never forget. For, if mental loyalty cannot suffice, then numerous dental cavities will keep the great Bun memory fresh.nud mcrlhnoi or!T uo( vv m v ViibVyA tv T uA Wi tvtbV ocW b r.i YtVtb Vi' v iwic ' Viwb Av u o '}wix m Wa taA'ytbw v X it ci i Vi yn tS ', on o nourm b .mA btv trAnvbVz m Vvbta ,1 mX b tAVvcA u AimA Y'ri'id'i ,Y bVv ot i AX tb i j.n'.uun v.vVv -w Z .ttwt oS wVjwrt vnot zr. mV«wVuvn Ax .zumA’iVu m t wiVvw t fonts wtit| VtoAz n l W'i j MM t«o tiAx uuwo'jfovM A to V'vAtm g Ax o mriwji znovVvAwn Xwt$ •mvw V bQ . h Wv V fo l gutt wo XbA n fo ?v 'ru b «nmoo A ■iv » »A o wo AVtot ivm ) foun fouuA b u iV o5, VvjAx u Vmro fo»ov WAX rj tovib i i»« tvun ( »A toiow xo zA .vjWivA o oo ° fowb 'r-'ooH vvA ota o wW 'iA © nvA Yvnbvo jjm'fuvA fA tV fo » u '(_ sfo «»v A AVto tmwovnfo Viuvj I'vAvn AX nv zstafonoA'v .A m A A Y"tvn w A tvA vmoz uA woWvfobtX t AT -fovo’A 'jwoz «Q .woj zv won ,W W •»• o) o 10 '.b wMU j ,to .X i io rww v m nwv uvbA t u fo jaovtm«H u »A (vji ut Xonnm fo' Utt8 b11'; '»A VjA Uvm t'nXtob'J .Atw vtomwvY F n C.

So, too, we who are in the glorious mid-morning of our searching young life, pause in the mid-morning month of each year. There is cast aside any false aura of intellectual pride and we stand bareheaded before the young girl who, in gentle radiance and radiant humility, holds sway over our hearts and the heart of her God-child. For well onto half a century have we paused thus, yet still each thought expressed is fresh, each consequent emotion is vibrant within us. For it is the freshness of truth and the vibrant longing after our real Mother in all that she can mean to us, that can never know decay. It is strangely evident that through this, our oldest custom, we show in our child-like faith, the mightiest proof of our mental and spiritual maturity that marks us Fordham men. acbo )Q gsM . d Vwin id o vv;'’W-.

He has studied order in the universe and knows that it is a planned universe. The evidence of order lies' all about him; in the winds, in the waves, in the eternal stars, in the flowers of the field, in the birds of the air. To the perfect man the world is a glorious symphony of order, nowhere more vocal than in his own being and in the being of those who with him form the stream of human existence. For him, man stands at the very pinnacle of the rising, com plicated orders of being. But man is not autonomous; he is both ruler and ruled, orderer and ordered. Conditioned and imperfect in himself, man is a remote image yet a clear revelation of Him who is unconditioned and infinitely perfect, the Supreme Ruler, the Supreme Flan, the Sovereign Creator and the Sovereign Good. The perfect man realizes that as God has expressed with fidelity in an ordered universe His eternal plan, His supreme goodness, and His finite beauty, so man, His image, must also by his free activity produce with fidelity order, goodness, beauty. Man’s precious gift of liberty is dissipated by license. It blooms in perfection u hen by it the Divine design of order written in man’s nature is realized by artistic living. Under the rule of reason man is to produce creatively a masterpiece, the plan of which he carries within himself and the realization of which makes him Divine. Freedom becomes glorious in imposing upon lower nature the rule of reason. Temperance and fortitude freely achieved are a mastery over the disorders of inordinate pleasure and inordinate fear, fust ice steadfastly realized is the triumph of freedom over selfish self-exaltation. Prudence like a sovereign queen vindicates the supremacy of reason over the disorder which would make of means an end. With temperance, fortitude, prudence, justice, the perfect man stands four square to all the shifting winds and tempests of life, orderer and ordered, ruler and ruled, vindicating his freedom from license by subordinating it to the design of human life. Conscious of his own limitations, of his own dependence on higher might and higher right, the perfect man counts as a high achievement of his liberty the expression of that limitation and dependence by acts of religious worship. He is thus bound anew to God by freely chosen bonds which declare the undying truth of his real relationship to Supreme Wisdom and Supreme l.ove. And as the perfect man rejoices to realize his freedom In expressing the truth of his relationship to God, so in his dealings with other men he is careful to acknowledge by deed the truth of their co-equality with himself. Not the least flower of freedom is its Thn j-lxvorecognition of the dignity and freedom of others. It thus declares in the eloquent language of deeds its adhesion to the truth of the real fraternity of all men under the fatherhood of God. And lastly the perfect man is glad to use his freedom to express the true relationship of man to the material goods of life. Of these he is the responsible steward not the absolute overlord. And they by being subservient to man's legitimate needs and pleasures become through him vocal in giving that glory to God which was the purpose that gave them being. Thus is the perfect man taught by reason a sound philosophy of life and a true design for living. Order is the law of being. The material universe has order imposed upon it; the rational world has order to achieve. Man by the exercise of freedom has the glorious task of bringing out ever more vividly in himself the image of the God of order. But that is not the whole story nor its sweetest part. Mankind is not only a natural solidarity; it is also, potentially at least, a supernatural solidarity. Human nature in Jesus Christ, Son of God, has been united to tJ.)e Divinity. Christ by His redemptive action has produced a new creation. Man can now participate in the Divine nature, can by his free choice become Divine. Christ is the ucu head of humanity oj which all men are either actual or potential members. A new supernatural entity has been brought into being, a moral though real personality, a supernatural solidarity by which men are made one in and with Christ as He and the Father are one. The perfect man realizes that as a Catholic he is a brother of the elder brother, Jesus Christ, a son with Him of the Father, a co-heir with Ilim to the joys of eternal life. By that union man shares in Christ's priesthood and Christ's a postulate. By that union with Christ, as member, he is united in strictest ties to all other members of Christ. A truer, more com pelting fraternity of men has been achieved by their union with Christ, true son of the Father who is in heaven. Conscious of the order in the universe natural and supernatural, the perfect man Jm s one supreme aim in life, to realize that order natural and su per natural both within himself and in all his activity which reaches beyond himself. Peace is the tranquillity of order and it is that peace that the perfect man strives to achieve, the peace that comes to men of good will. One more thing the perfect man understands, that as peace comes from order, so joy inevitably flows from both. The perfect man has joy within and dispenses joy without. His life overflows with joy because ordered living is a living fountain of joy. There is a benediction in his handshake and an absolution in his smile. It is the joy of that more abundant life of which man's supreme master spoke, "I am come that they may have life and have it more abundantly." Fie also said, "Remain in my love. If you keep my command meats you will remain in my love. . . . These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and your joy may be filled." Tt 11) thieeThe Senior Class SENIOR OFFICERS Jeri mi ah P. Creak Joseph P. McCluskey Albert A. Garofai.o Francis 1. Mountain President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer IN' the early part of September, 19?.9, the members of the Class of 33 began their careers at Fordham. On the first day, having wandered more or less aimlessly about the campus for some time, we were finally directed by an unseen hand to the Auditorium, where it was Father Deane’s thankless task to infuse order into our disordered ranks. The following week witnessed the customary initiation ol the lowly l-rosh by the Sophs. In due time the excitement of the first days wore off: classes were organized; the caps, ties and buttons were placed aside and Thirty-Three fell into stride in the parade of Fordham men. No sooner were we settled down to the study of the classics and the various sciences than class elections were held. Frank Bauer was elected as our first President, with James Clark, James Treacy and John Svzmanski as fellow officers. As we recall those early days, the first names that were brought to our attention were those of athletes. On the gridiron Joe Zapustas and Connie Murphy played exceptionally well. On the basketball court Put .cr and Radicc scintillated, while one Joe McCluskey gave notice that he would bear watching by winning the Freshman Intercollegiate Cross-Country Championship. During the first year the Class of ’33 had shown itself to be an active, spirited group. It was with the hope of arousing this same Fordham spirit in the new Frosh that we undertook our Sophomoric tasks. As class president, James Clark addressed the Freshmen. The other class officers. James J. Trcacy, Vice-President; John J. Burke, Secretary and William Moody, Treasurer, were active on the Vigilance Committee, of which Edward J. McDonough was chairman. The Class of ’3 3 returned to Junior year with a will to work and an ardent desire to begin the study of that much-discussed subject. Philosophy. In the midst of this engaging pursuit a deep loss was suffered when Connie Murphy, an athlete, scholar, anti gentleman, injured in the final football game of the season, passed from us. John Svzmanski, who was also seriously injured in the same game, completely recovered after a long and gallant fight. T bitty fourTlw members of the Junior ( lass were represented to a man in Sodality and the Council of Debate attracted many to its weekly meetings. In the folds ol the language clubs were Edward Ricciuti, Henry J. Bender, Vladimir J. Svitak, Joseph Brady, Michael Sheehan, Anthony Fitzgerald and Patrick F. Casey. Much of the success of Thf Ram was due to the presence on its staff of Michael Sheehan, Vladimir J. Svitak, John Calarco. Daniel J. Ahearn, Sylvester T. Cohane, John Arens and James 1;. Clark. For the Monthly, John J. Burke continued his excellent work and the efforts of two new and capable writers, Frank J. Crane and Henry Bender, were welcomed by the readers. I'd Koch’s frontispiece sketches added to the attractiveness ol each issue. Juniors who helped to maintain the justly deserved reputation of the Glee Club were John S. Stella, Henry Bender, Frank Crane, Joseph Magrath, John Edwards, John Brennan, John Stewart, William Dunn and William Coleman. Ambrose J. Hartnett was selected as Ediior-in-Chicf of the ‘3 Maroon and he in turn named the members of his staff. Our class officers for the year were James E. Clark, President; Robert F. O’Keefe, Vice-President James J. Mossev, Secretary; and James J. Tearcy, Treasurer. Those who added further glory to the name of F’ordham on the fields of sport were Connie Murphy, John Syzmanski, Joe Zapustas, and Danny Alvino in Football; Gerry Radicc and Adolph Pingarron in basketball; Joe Zapustas, John Loehr. Dannv Alvino and Bart McDonnell in baseball; Justin Cashman and William Rotchford in swimming; Laurence Ehrhardt and Jack Kennedy in tennis and Jerry McGrath and Joe McCluskey in track. Joe had an excellent season on the boards during the w inter and in the summer placed among the leaders in his event in the Olympics. To guide us on the last lap of our most enjoyable journey, the class elected Jeremiah P. Crcan, President: Joseph P. McCluskey, Vice-President; Alfred A. Garofalo, Secretary, and Francis Mountain, Treasurer. Michael J. Sheehan, as Editor-in-Chief of Tnr Ram, deserves considerable praise for giving us an interesting weekly. The destinies ol the Sodalities were placed in the able hands ol classmates. Edward S. Dermody became Prefect of the Parthenian Sodality; John E. Callaghan, of the St. John Bcrchmans Sodality; Joseph P. McCluskey, of the St. Vincent dc Paul Conference, and Thomas V. O’Keefe, of the Immaculate Conception Sodality. Those who were active in the catechetical work carried on by the Immaculate Conception Sodality were James S. Conway, John S. Stella, John P. Sheahan, William A. Dunn, Cosmos Reale and Charles McEnroe. Daniel J. Ahearn became President of the Council of Debate. The Spanish and German Clubs were under the supervision of Anthony Fitzgerald and Laurence C. Ehrhardt. Other organizations which showed new life under Senior leadership were the Quill Club, under Vladimir Svitak; the Mendel Club under David Connors, the Chemists’ Club under Francis Pickel, the Mimes and Mummers, under Francis J. Turnedy, the Officers’ Club under William II. Francke and the Harvester Club under Charles M. Wilson. Patrick Casey served as Editor of the Fordham-France, a monthly paper and Edward Flanagan held a like position on the stall of the Rerorr, the official organ of the Chemists’ Club. The year was one ol considerable activity for the members of the Senior Class. Edward J. McDonough won the oratorical contest. In the presentation of the Mimes and Mummers, "The Rivals," by Richard Brinsly Sheridan, Thomas M. Brosnan and William Coleman gave laudable interpretations of difficult roles. In the Varsity One-Acts, John J. Courtney and John Burke received second prizes for acting and writing, respectively. The otliccrs of the Athletic Association were James E. Clark, President; William J. Moody, Vice-President and Michael J. Hayes, Secretary. Having drifted on the sea of happy memories, the Class of ’3 3 is brought abruptly to the reality of the present. As we bid a fond farewell to Fordham, we know that, guided by the principles we have learned so well within her walls, we cannot help but make our presence in the outer world a helpful one to all and a credit to her.

His ability to attain a maximum ot knowledge with a minimum ot cramming and the hearty wit that characterized the man were integral elements in all activities of the class. He trod the boards in the various school dramas with a naturalness and sprightliness that bespoke an inherent histrionic ability. And his guiding hand in the various apologetic societies moved with such energy that he won fame as a veritable Mussolini. Connie has two strong dislikes, shaving and hard chairs. He is unique in that he loves stifling hot weather, but we more than suspect it is because he wants an excuse to go swimming, a sport in which he excels. Pedagogy is the profession that lie has decided to grace and we feel sure that it cannot help but benefit by bis participation. The keenness of his mind, the sparkling brilliance of his conversation and a likeable savoir-faire won him a host of admiring friends; and the same brightness of character we know will carry him to even greater heights.

CCT i you want a tiling done in a hurry ask a busy man.” It is our humble X opinion that “Dan” is an almost perfect example of this axiom. It was on the debating rostrum, however, that his greatest success was achieved. An orator with varsity talent, he won for himself the coveted presidency of the Council of Debate. But now let us bring you the personal "Dan.” A master of repartee, his conversation sparkles with colloquialisms. His salient wit is pointed, but always kindly and never inconsiderate of another’s feelings. He finds diversion in the epigrammatic Barrie, and swears by O. Henry, whom he has an ardent desire to emulate. A keen student of human nature, he often gratified this propensity in analyzing the character of his associates, and seldom, may it be said, did he err. Upon leaving our midst "Dan” intends to go the way of most Fordham men, namely, entering law. What with his natural rhetorical and analytical capabilities. we expect much from him in this, his chosen line of endeavor. T biriy-sevenI rolirrun Football. Varsity Football. 3. » .

Hebron Academy Coming from the State of Maine, "Danny” brought a great love for the "open spaces” with him, and the "plains” of New York were quite a novelty to him. liut he soon showed his ability as an all-around man. His is a unique personality. Endowed with dynamic qualities, he has a rare capacity for work and for "taking a beating” when necessary. For in his last two years, he received more injuries on the football field than any other one man. To go through this requires more than usual character and strength and "Dan” has proved himself in this respect. Coupled with this, he has an unusual combination of scholarly acumen and taste for literary pursuits. Typical of "Dan,” his plans for the future arc very definite, lie is going to teach and coach baseball at a school at home. He stands out an individual who will succeed because of his strong character and independent thinking, not because he depends upon the crowd. T bitty eightArthur A. Amendola, B.S. St. John’s Prep., Danvers, Mass. Areal Christian gentleman—that is the best description we can find of "Art” Amendola. Of all our classmates, we know few who have taken so much of practical benefit from the fine philosophical training which we have received at Fordham. 1 le has taken every morsel of this wisdom, and applied it to himself as a definite force in his life. As a result we have just that—"a real Christian gentleman." Kindness, devotion to duty, love of his fellow man, all flow as naturally from his well-rounded character as the day does from the dawn. A more delightfully wholesome character than ''Art’s" is a real rarity. Spurred on by his love of humanity and a sincere desire to help his fellow man, he intends to enter the medical field. X'c believe that his character and talents fit him remarkably well for such a career. Carry into your profession the high ideals and fine ethical principles which vou have alwavs held so dear, ''Art," and you will be a credit to yourself, to your profession, and to Fordham.

"Clem” is an excellent student, and is simultaneously identified as a capable leader in many college organizations. His favorite studies are mathematics and philosophy, and he prefers to spend his leisure at bridge or the theatre. As a member of the present generation he is quite content, for if he had lived in a previous age there would have been no automobiles. "Clem’s” favorite method of transportation. Fordham, he holds, is the right place to learn to think carefully, and he advises undergraduates to work hard but not merely for the sake of "marks.” His character has been manifested chiefly by a love of argument and friendly discussion. A glance at the activities listed above proves beyond doubt that "Clem's” future is business. It is his ambition to secure work in the mathematical field. Forty-oneSlum Story 1.

From "Bill’s” modesty has sprung that silent way of doing things which is proper to those who really do them. 11 is greatest accomplishments are in the academic field—a leader in the class. He is, nevertheless, so unassuming that he shies at any scholastic discussions. But, at the card table, or on the handball court, he will let you know that he is not to be beaten—nor can he easily be excelled at swimming or dancing. Temporal ambition means little to "Bill"—though he has his own quiet mode of getting what he wants, with never a hurt to the feelings of others.

His pet principles are many, but those against which he has delivered the greatest number of tirades arc forced thinking and discipline. "Ban ie” maintains that "each man should think his own thoughts and not those foisted upon him by his superiors, and also that medieval discipline, misused in the twentieth century, should be routed.” His diversions outside of class include cross-word puzzles, football, and bridge. To be able to support a wife and family is his greatest ambition. He advises the undergraduate who desires to succeed to fall in line and completely subordinate his personality to superior authority. Accounting is “Banzie’s” hobby, and he hopes, after graduation, to teach that subject in conjunction with economics. As a medium by which to express his originality, he could not have hit upon a happier choice than economics, for it is a subject in which all opinions are welcomed and wherein no two agree.

Always more or less bored by the routine of class work, he is a genuine spark of genius in understanding his fellow man. Somewhat ol a social lion, he never missed a dance or social function in his four years. Of the entire group, Joe is the most typical New Yorker. Always the gentleman. he invariably yields whenever a weaker brother suffers embarrassment. A prodigious reader, he is conversant on many and diverse subjects. Of rugged physique, Joe participates in all forms of athletics. More than once has he given the boys down at Columbia a tussle. Perhaps it is to be regretted that he did not indulge in varsity sports during his sojourn at I ordham. Joe is fit for his chosen profession of teaching, since lie has a well-rounded mentality and is particularly social m his activities. 11 is only dislike is sham or hypocrisy in any form. However, the serious Mr. Caslin is not well known.

Cavadi, A.B. West New York High av” will always be remembered by us for his inborn courtesy and love of a good time. In the heat of argument or the coolness of conversation he never allows himself to be other than the type of gentleman of which Fordham is so proud. In his social moods well do we recall him at the Freshman "EM Banquet some four years ago. Sparkling over like a rare old vintage with exuberance and vitality he gave such animation and jov to the evening as wc shall never forget. His plans for the future arc still rather vague, but his greatest ambition is a clean-cut and worthy one, namely, to live successfully. Personally, wc believe that "Cav” would reach new heights if he adopted physical training as his vocation. Blessed with a finely proportioned and muscular physique, he is in every way adapted to guide others less fortunate than himself to the high-road of health and physical perfection.

Michael J. Ceklzzi, A.B. Hillhousc High Little did anyone imagine that this youthful-appearing lad who came to the University seeking knowledge would turn out to be one of the brighter lights on the campus. Endowed with a keen mind, an Herculean energy and a Napoleonic imagination, "Mike” Ceru . i easily forced himself to the foreground. His activities have been many and varied, running the gauntlet from Manager of Varsity l ootball to business Manager of the present Maroon. Then, too, many of the splendid Varsity productions are indebted to him for the unique lighting effects which he could create when he set his mind to a situation. As to "Mike’s” attitude toward the social life of the University, little can be said. Yet if you would ask him personally about his experiences he might tell you of one or two. Shakespeare has somewhere written that character determines destiny, which statement in itself is neither surprising nor extraordinary. And in applying it to “Mike” we sincerely say his destiny will be successful. Seventy-threeEdward L. Chatlos, A.B. Fordham Prep. Here is a character that has undergone a distinct metamorphosis since his entrance through the portals of the University. When he came here, "Eddie” seemed to have an idea that it was all in fun; but during the four years here he has become a real and sincere student. This, it seems to your humble correspondent, is one of the most important—one of the finest things that college can do for a man. Too often it has the opposite effect. He may be seen at the better restaurants where, like the Kentucky Colonel, who is now passing out of a colorful existence, he knows good wine, suh, and a good dinner. He has proved, for all that, that he has a mind keen to solve rhe problems presented to an 'Arts" man. Like many other members of our class he intends to study Law, and in that capacity he will have the same happy existence that characterized his life while here at Fordham. Seienty-joiirOwen J.

Dynamic in his speech and in his work, a dashing boulevardier on occasion, withal a philosopher with time for pipe and bowl, and an irrepressible flair for the dramatic—that’s "Jim.” His sparkling facility with brush and pen found expression in the "Ram.” where the moving drama of l;ordham’s athletic prowess was unfolded in his spore cartoons and our social life was mirrored in his "Ramblings” column. He needs no adieu, and well-wishing would be superfluous.

His diction is perfect and his phrasing meticulous; we regret that he did not mingle more, but contented himself by remaining in the background. Music is his avocation, and during his college days he generously devoted himself to the orchestra. l or two years he was concert master of that organization. As a member of the "Ram” he gave his time unsparingly; many of the best news stories in the long life of that paper have been composed by him since he gained its News Board. His cheery and lightsome disposition covers a much deeper interior which is capable of giving rise to very profound philosophic truths; he has long been a master at saying much in a very few words.

"Outward assurance coupled with a ready smile,” he asserts, "will assure one of success, despite the entertainment ol inward uncertainty.” Adrian believes that extracurricular activities are advantageous, and all should partake therein to the fullest extent. The philosophy taught at Fordham and the sound principles of reasoning inculcated therein, he holds, are the best possible training for the young man about to enter the commercial world. Of all adventures, life is the greatest to Adrian. In fact, he relishes the unexpectancies of existence and modern life with all its appurtenances for "good times" to such an extent he wishes he could start his life over.

Xavier High Bill’s name is instantly associated with a colorful picture of the band, before which he was wont to swing gaily down the field, his silver baton a-twirl in the autumnal sunlight. This ambidexterity, a natural facility for doing many things well and a bent for social functions as tendered the Cilce (dub, constitute the basis of his many friendships. A desire for literary expression found voice in the brilliant poems with which he enriched the pages of the Monthly, while the memorable verses which dotted the "Ramblings” column won Bill fame as a humorist. His forte, however, is the realm of the Masque, the Mime and the Mummer. Gifted with a superior histrionic ability, his capacities were as varied as the characters he portrayed. The role that stands out most sharply in memory is his polished performance as the Jester 'Teste” in "Twelfth Night,” when, as one critic put it. Bill “carried us back to the bizarre fooling of the Middle Ages.” All these, plus a rare sincerity and goodfellowship, gained for Bill a high place in our estimation. Eighty-oneJohn J. Conley, A.B.

No sooner did he have his prescription tilled than he was immediate!} fascinated l the biology pills recommended by Doctor Crowley and l ather Assmuth. Even today, it a consultation of these eminent physicians were to be called to inquire into "Jerry's” weakness, the unanimous decision of these biologists would be that he showed an attraction for the study and consequently it would be wise for him to satisfy his constitution more fully. When "Jerry” was not too busy attending to his biology, which formed a comparatively small part of his curriculum, he often sought recreation in the activities of the Mendel Club and Chemists’ Club. More often, he could be found backstage where his artistic being sought expression, and it was there he reached heights not hitherto attained.

A sight to delight the eye was "Dave’s” khaki-clad figure at the head of a marching column of cadets. Medicine is to be his career and, in view of the fact that his scholarship at Fordham has been so uniformly high as to merit his appointment as a student instructor in biology, we have no hesitancy in predicting for him a brilliant future in the ranks of the medicos.

He was a true and staunch follower of Fordham and showed this by his presence at all gatherings, social and intellectual. Small in stature, he has been compensated with that great quality and asset of being very quick to make friends. We venture to say with certitude that he’ll make a great salesman.

But to those who knew him best, "Phil” will always be synonymous with thoughts of romance; for he is one of that old passing school that looks to romance as the ultimate happiness of life.

As the years wore on and we became better acquainted, he endeared himself to us by his quiet manner and modest mien.

He likes to sit by and take notice of the accomplishments of others, finding a keen pleasure in the various activities of his fellow students. His sympathetic nature and yearning to aid his fellow-man will quite adequately fit him for his teaching career, and the medical research tendency he strongly fosters. The quiet life of the chemical laboratory and the unique experiments to be performed on various animals greatly attract and captivate his fertile imagination.

As a general rule, he is quiet, but sometimes he breaks his long silence with an involved refutation of an otherwise accepted philosophical thesis. Success, he claims, is to be achieved by concentration and working according to a set schedule. Often he is seen sauntering along the lanes and byways of the adjoining park, musing, no doubt, on some favorite theory which he holds in philosophy', his chosen subject. In Ins leisure time he selects a book from the hallowed halls of the college library and betakes himself to a cozy corner to read the immortal works of Dickens or to write a poem that would rival Tennyson’s best.

"Eddie” came to us with the background of staid old New York and Damascus High School, and we feel sure that the staidness has remained despite his collegiate years here at the University. The staidness clearly distinguishes him, making him a refreshing personality in an unstable world. Credit must be given "Eddie” for his ability to make text books parade by and leave their knowledge with him, for his academic ranks have always been worthy of commendation. The same is true at social affairs, only instead of a parade of texts, it has been a feminine procession. Women have always held his interest in a vague way but no woman has been able to stake a permanent claim upon his heart. As an ardent advocate of all campus activities, "Ed" has been a most valuable man and so, with his four years of University life completed, he has built an excellent foundation for his business career.

Time and again when a classmate, unmindful of the flight of time, had failed to bring in a completed problem on the day assigned, "Ed” could be found helping the negligent student and seeing that Mr. Smith and Mr. Jones had the correct debit or credit balances in their respective accounts. Such assistance he always willingly gave, and for such his friends were most grateful. Prom all this, one might gather that Mr. Dolan was what is popularly called a "grind.” However, this is not so.

He was the perfect gentleman in every word and action, and the greatness ol his periphery was a negative quantity in comparison with the greatness of his magnanimity. Medicine has beckoned to him and he has answered, raking with him the characteristics of perseverance, application and the sound philosophy that have marked him as a student. We shall remember you, "Jack,” as the interesting historian, and feel sure that in the years to come we shall yield to the temptation to ascend the hilly streets of Newburgh, interrupt your office hours, distract you from your thoughts of peristaltic to peripatetic action, and have another good talk and long walk.

In portraying the character of a man who is gifted with a multiplicity of the best qualities, it is exceedingly difficult to find a point from which to begin.

Always on hand with a lively anecdote, "Bob” refused to take any situation seriously. His talent, however, was not limited to his wit. His ability as an athlete is well known. In our gym days, he would start off with handball, ready to challenge the winners, then step on to the basketball court and garner further glory. The ease, accuracy, and precision with which he conducted himself in athletic endeavor will rest in the memory of those who knew him for many a long day. To round off his character we look to studies. Always a keen student, the facility with which he assimilated studies allowed him considerable leisure for the lighter things of life.

If he is not the first cause for "The man with the Smile” and "he will succeed,” we do not know who is. Not that he is dashing, for he is quiet; not that he is given to many words, for his speech is well controlled; not that he is hilarious, for we know him best by his winsome smile, but because his presence is engaging and always charming we say that "Frank” is worth while and that he will succeed. Two memories of him will always remain with us—first, his skill and sportsmanship on the basketball courr; secondly, his ability at solving cryptograms. It seems that "Frank” considered that some form of mental setting-up exercises should be performed before starting the serious work of class periods.

White Plains High A glance at the robust build of this quiet but not at all grave lad would tell you that surely here is one who loves the out-of-doors. And singularly enough, that very glance would open the nearest approach to "Jim” himself. For, first of all, he is an athlete, an all-around athlete. In the tournament this year he showed himself to be a fine tennis player, and he can "hold his own” in baseball and basketball. But "Jim” has not confined himself to physical diversion. No, he has found in the out-of-doors a stimulus for thought. He has made a study of nature. This is his second accomplishment. And when he speaks about the habits of animals, or the formation of rocks, which he has observed in New Hampshire, he is most interesting. A quiet manner is a characteristic of "Jim” and to one who has known him, it is his greatest. It is the source of a true friendship, true because unfailing. "Jim” is, indeed, a gentleman, a scholar and a rare wit. One Hundred EighteenAnthony W. Fitzgerald, A.B. Brooklyn Prep.

Action and precision of routine are qualities which raise "Fritz” from the mass. Extensive tours of the whole United States render him a most entertaining conversationalist, but his tendency to be "on the go" has deprived us of many hours of pleasant talks with him. Swimming and basketball keep him in good form, and lie relaxes his extraordinarily analytic mind at the card table, and in talks with his associates. Every nerve of "Tony’s” being vibrates with the tingle of battle with all life’s obstacles; and he always wins.

It is our contention that John will live in memory wherever Fordham men foregather, and will have the best wishes of his classmates to accompany him through life.

We mentioned his unique personality; it lies in this. Frank is a lover of "Kilmer,” but he specialized in chemistry. He has assiduously attended chemistry lectures, but delighted in the theatre. In his Freshman year he offered a one-act play for the contest. Such a well-rounded man is an exception, and a most valuable asset to the class. Then, too, he has a vast reportorial knowledge, being crammed full of interesting facts gathered from inexplicable sources.

Back in our Freshman year it seemed very unlikely that in our number was one with the aspirations of being a future defender of law. However, now it takes but hall a myopic eye to see in Charles the signs of a successful barrister. In addition to this outward demeanor, he has developed an industrious habit which would be a valuable asset to any man. At the same time, he has cultivated the friendship of most of the class by his utter frankness and sincerity. Yet, curiously enough, there arc very few who can say they know him well, for behind his openness and friendliness there is a rich mind and an individuality that few but a chosen company have been able to thoroughly appreciate.

Time has shown us his development from the effervescent athlete of high school to the finished man of thought. Yet he stdl favors the more strenuous sports—basketball and football—and likes his golf, when he is not thinking deeply over philosophy or chemistry. Here is an example for those who would be serious students, for John is not one who skims the surface of things. Mental explorations are a past art with this man, whose modesty underrates his own ability in the fields of thought. His sense of duty will some day produce a hero, for John is the kind who. if one cent is due, tries to make good with two. Yes. indeed, we can rely on Dr. Garbarini to come to us in our sickness, and scrupulously perform his duty. The natural modesty, absence of self-assertiveness, and geniality of his character give John the right to be called "mild as a lamb.” One Twenty-sevenConiuvciiu! Club 1. 2. S. 4. R. O.

For three years he has carefully chosen his comrades and contented himself with their company. Yet he is essentially individualistic, having his own ideas, practices and beliefs. "Al” stands by himself in many arguments and is always well able to uphold his side. Then, too, he is sensitive, apologetic and, above all, has a conscience. On the campus he plays an unassuming n »le, yet his presence is felt in many activities by his constructive suggestions, especially in the Connecticut Club and Officers Club. We are especially indebted to him because, as subscription manager of the Maroon. '‘Al” has been most instrumental in the Business Department. All in all, he has been a scholar and a gentleman—a gentleman most of all because he has been hospitable and entertaining—room, clothes and tales of experience. One Hundted Twenty-eightJoseph S.

Yet these social functions have never been permitted to take undue precedence over his class work. An ardent student of military affairs, the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps has occupied no small part of his time at school. His square jaw, his keen eye, his erect bearing, so well suited to the military uniform, have earned for "Joe” the title of "Colonel” among his associates. Though, truth to tell, most of "Colonel Joe’s” work as a leader of men has been in the daily taxicab parade of the "French Poileaus” from Paris across Fordham Road. He was always right out in front. His cheerful character has done much to make our years at Ford-ham pleasant; and we look forward to a continuance of "Joe’s” friendship in the ranks of the Alumni.

Perhaps this is why "Jack's crowd” always seem to be getting such a great deal of pleasure from all they do. For it is exactly that kind of friendship that they find in "Jack.” Cool, level-headed, and possessed of a quiet and unassuming self-confidence, it has been a pleasure to know him and to be associated with him in class and in our outside activities at Fordham. We cannot but feel a deep regret that this pleasant association is now to be curtailed. Yet we have the consolation of the knowledge that wherever friends ol Fordham may meet in the future there we may hope to find the always loyal “Jack.” May you go on, "Jack,” nuking friends, creating happiness about you and attaining your ends quietly but effectively, as you have always done at Fordham.

"Tom’s” greatest pride is being known merely as "one of the fellows.” Successful in all Ins studies, his natural inclination is toward the realms of philosophy and history; lus love of history is indicated by the fact that he "sat in" at a course in European history just for pleasure.

An objective to be gained, he believes, is the strongest stimulus to success, provided that perseverance in gaining that objective is tenaciously observed. "The undergraduate who organizes his work and utilizes his leisure hours profitably constructs the best foundation for his future life,” is another of his maxims. He is an ardent follower of politics and prefers it as a field of endeavor second only to medicine, the profession of his choice.

An ever-present smile and a happy-go-lucky manner have won for him a host of friends and the position of one of Fordham’s best known figures. A born politician, if ever there was one, "Dutch” has decided to follow in the footsteps of a great number of his predecessors here at Fordham and cast Ins hat into the New York political ring.

How strictly he has adhered to this norm is manifested by the host of friends he has gathered about himself. Were we to nominate him for "Vanity Fair” we would base our nomination on his scintillating personality, exemplified in his varied moods about the University. Vet underlying his pleasant demeanor is a litterateur, little known even to his intimates. Although he evidences keen delight in the quaint portraits of Kipling, and in the charming prose of Copperfield’s creation, yet his enthusiasm for the genius of the great music masters finds expression in his tangible interpre tations on his beloved violin. Under his magical touch, the harmonies of Schubert and Grieg live again.

His strong character has been the object of our admiration ever since he came to us three years ago from Holy Cross. We have always felt that his change was our gain. "Bill” lost no time in the process of orientation at Fordham. His personality and ready wit recommended him immediately as an enjoyable companion, while his executive ability made him indispensable in guiding the destinies of the Jersey Club.

In disposition, he is cold and aloof, but once the outer veneer is broken one could not meet a finer chap. When not pursuing wisdom he diverts himself with dancing or the theatre; he is not fond of reading. Studies, especially the sciences, hold the greatest appeal for him—his natural inclination is toward the biological sciences. "Ed” has elected to be the exception to the rule, and leaves no parting advice to the undergraduate nor any formula for success; this is in itself a stroke of genius. He has not revealed his post-graduate plans, but if we may judge by his collegiate training, his career will be in the held of medicine. One Hundred :orty-sevenThomas M. Hurley, A.13.

One cannot help but recall the oft-repeated adage, "one may silent be and teach the world great wisdom,” if one wishes to know the "Tom” who has so endeared himself to his classmen here at Fordham. A slow quizzical smile spreads over his countenance, a smile of amusement, a smile of recognition. 1 le will allow no obstacle to stand in his path of learning, even though it causes him untold hardships. Baseball and basketball claim him as their representative, and no sooner are class teams organized than "Tom” is asked to participate. But, above all. he has shown himself to be the ideal Fordham man, true to his religion as well as to his friends—rain or shine, sweltering heat or freezing cold never could succeed in keeping him away from sodality meetings or any other religious activities. We would be well pleased if we could fill out this portrait by using "Tom’s” courage, his loyalty, and his much-esteemed friendship, as a background, but space will not permit us to extol these virtues to their fullest degree.

"Bob” has never let himself become well known very far beyond his own circle ol intimate friends, but these friends know him to be a perfect student and a perfect gentleman.

As a result, he has been one of our outstanding students. Yet. it was in the more informal atmosphere of the "Rcc” Room that his sterling character really made itself evident. Groups would gather here in quiet corners to discuss any topic, from relativity to the latest novel; and "Jack’s” well-rounded knowledge and his high-mindedness always were displayed in these discussions. Our fondest good wishes go with you, "Jack.” in your quest for the success which seems so certain to be yours. One Handled Fifty-cueGeorge A. Keating, B.S.

Wc admire him for his sense of humor, which is an essential requisite of all educated men. This is one of the reasons that he is welcome in any group. But there are other causes for "Bill’s” popularity. Many an otherwise indifferent afternoon has been livened by his melodic notes on the piano. That he is an accomplished artist in this line needs no further proof than the unanimous demands for his services by his enthusiastic supporters whenever an opportunity for his playing presents itself.

One Hundred Fifty-fiveJohn B. Kelley, A.B. Palmer High Of placid demeanor, a smile, a friendly word, a nod of recognition—John Kelley, as we first met him; as we’ll always remember him. A retiring disposition, quiet manner and dignified carriage serve to augment these sterling characteristics of true friendship. Yet, these qualities are very general, and because ol this fact, perhaps, we have given a false impression of John. If we have conveyed the idea that he is just an ordinary lad with a certain amount of good traits, wc have erred badly. On the contrary, lie is very distinctive. But to particularize these attributes so admirably personified in him is a task too difficult for penmen of our mediocre ability to attempt to undertake. let it suffice to be said that wc have known John for four years and wc would never want to meet a more polished gentleman, a truer friend or a more loyal son of Fordham.

Here is an individual of earnest purpose, high ideals and the ability to carry them out. "Tom” does his work conscientiously and well. At the University his activities have been of opposite natures. In his Freshman year he displayed his dramatic ability by winning the Freshman Play Contest. Then, as a young Sophomore, he turned to conquer history and, in his Junior year, to economics. So, after a successful struggle with "Ely.” "Napoleon." and accounting, "Tom" budded forth—after memorizing the stock market reports—as an economist of note. But he balanced this by acquitting himself in philosophy. Withal, while the rest of us have shown fickleness, fluttering about, groping for a hook on which to hang our theories and ideals, "Tom” has stood pat. lie has proved to us that it is possible to follow modern thought without suffering a complete reversal of ideas. "Tom” has decided to enter the teaching profession and, with his earnest purpose and ideals, lie is assured a successful career.

As the years went on, he extended his activities to include mission work, class athletics and membership in the Athletic Association until now. in his senior year, "Jack" is manager of the tennis team and lack Coffey’s right hand man. Nothing you asked of him would be considered by "Jack” too great to do. It is no wonder, then, that he numbers among his friends members of all college classes as well as divers tennis luminaries he has met and defeated throughout his college course.

A more cheerful, happy character than the "Tucka-hoe Redhead” is difficult to conceive. But the ever-present cheerfulness is, in him, far from being an indication of levity of mind. Rather it is the delightful exuberance of one who has done his task well and who can, therefore, enjoy the fruits of his labors to the fullest. Ilockey might well be "Joe’s” middle name, lor a more rabid enthusiast, both as a player and spectator, than he we have never seen. Every opportunity finds him on the ice, chasing the elusive puck, and few home games of the Rangers have not seen him at the Garden, cheering his team on to victory.

As proof of the fulfillment of his promise, one need only hover in that vicinity for a moment and soon his innermost thoughts will be jostled by the reverberating noises from the experiments of this scientist. Some of those experiments surprise the professors themselves (who wonder how he survives them). Opposed to the belief that no man is better than another, he set out to prove this theory wrong by leading many in his chosen field and even, to some extent, in philosophy. In spring a young man’s fancy turns to love,” as some poet said, but this person, being of a higher intellectual and physical capacity, turned to the national pastime of baseball. And what a player he developed into! Many men tried to dethrone him but he was indomitable and immovable. However, since his greatest proficiency lies in chemistry, we leave him to his chosen field. On e Hundred SixtyWilliam E. Kir wan, Jr., B.S. Stuyvesant High Noi the least pleasing of "Bill’s” qualities are his good nature and easy-going manner. Many an hour have we whiled away in interesting conversation and pleasantries—hours that have been a delight to all of us, for they somehow seemed to make us bright and cheery and helped us to form those friendly contacts which are so necessary to a college atmosphere. While making many friends ''Bill” has not been unmindful of his work, for he has maintained a scholastic standing that has been consistently good. A keen student of accounting, he solves the hardest problems that confront him. Besides this he has also been active in many extra-curricular activities and his work in connection with these has been the subject of much praise. All Fordham’s social functions and athletic contests find him present for he has a winning personality that makes him welcome everywhere and a loyalty to his athletic teams that is as staunch as it is avid.

But why go into details? That he has won many by his earnestness, staunch character and undeniable sense of fair-play is no secret. Even-tempered, but not a stoic, he condones the follies and incongruities of life and evaluates the significant and important.

Kratochwil, A.B. Fordh.im Prep. Louis E. Kratociiwil has a unique personality, is cheerful and ever happy. We might indeed call him the source and center of all good cheer and mirth whenever he is near. His best friends throughout the school years will vouch that this is no exaggeration, especially when we remember his rollicking smile, happy-go-lucky manner, case ol self-denouncement, and that extraordinary ship-walk peculiar to him alone. We have acquired such a liking for Louis Edwin—which name he has safely kept to himself and from his fellows for nearly a decade—that this year’s graduates will always remember him as outstanding and individual. Eight years of the Prep School and the College at Fordham have given him an "outlook on life essential for these times." We can safely say from a consideration of his true and understanding personality that his outlook must of necessity be pleasurable and bright. Photography is his chief interest and he has our sincerest hopes that he will succeed. "Auf Wiedersehen." One Hundred Sixty-four Anthony P. Kuciiis, A.B. St. Mary’s Institute Seldom does a man of real talent keep himself so successful and completely from his colleagues as Anthony has during the past four years. His passage through college has been so serene and placid and his modesty so completely self-effacing, that he is known only to his immediate friends. Philosophy is "Tony’s” favorite study; concentrative reading his avocation—both have aided him in becoming a straight thinker and a keen analyst. To those who follow his path through school, he gives sane counsel to study by analysis the problem at hand and to eschew memory; he believes the routine ol study should be regularly broken by indulgence in extra-curricular activities in order that a refreshed mind may be brought to one’s scholastic endeavors. Anthony’s plans at present, include a course in law to be followed by entrance into business. To whatever field he goes, we are sure that he brings with him the two primary requisites for success —a sound mind and good principles. One Hundred Sixty-fiveWilliam V. Kuhn, A.B.

Student;, athlete, all-round fellow, yes, that's Bill! Basketball was his favorite sport and just a glance at an interclass game in which he was a participant would quickly give you the reason why. He liked the game and played accordingly. Bill held sway in the classroom, too, as many will testify. Not the leader, but always up in that select group of students who confidently await examination returns. Did we forget to tell you where he could usually be found after class? The handball court is the answer and here again he showed great ability in a sport. He enters all his undertakings with that same tirelessness and fine concentration that have so well lent to bis success. Many of Ins friends tell you that the debating society missed a good man. We who know him readily agree for he has a keen mind and dearly loves to argue on a debatable topic. Depression or no depression, we confidently claim and predict success for Bill.

His finely balanced character has done much to win him the respect and admiration of his acquaintances. A deep interest in medicine, and a determination to attain success in that field, have served as a strong incentive to "Pete” in maintaining a high scholastic standing, as he always has done. Yet. by no stretch ot the imagination could he be termed a "grind.” l or, just as he studies hard, so Pete also enjoys himself well in the time which he allots to pleasure. A finer, more loyal supporter than "Pete” Fordham never had. and we venture to predict, never will have. Few Fordham events in the past four years have nor seen "Pete” in the ranks of those present.

Dramatically, he is inclined towards all things Shakespearian and revels in the musings of his favorite poet, Francis Thompson.

Equally at home in the numerous literary societies of the college, he found time to perfect himself not only on the debating platform but also in the intricacies ol philosophical discussion.

We have had the pleasure of associating with George, in work and in play, for the last three years. He is an ideal scholar and declares that at Fordham one finds an ideal environment. But now, let us get to the bed-rock of George’s character. In describing him, one short sentence is enough. He is a gentleman scholar with a heart of gold. Now then, what do we mean by a gentleman scholar? George’s actions best answer this. He is registered as a B.S. man but, primarily, he is a litterateur, coming here to grow intellectually and therein finding keen enjoyment. Yet he always believed in enjoying life while the opportunity was in his grasp. To enjoy life and drink it more fully, he was endowed with the eves and soul of a connoisseur in things beautiful. To further this, his avocation is reading. In George we have the developed student, a man undoubtedly ready to take his place in the world where a liberal education is a necessity.

Although a well-versed student, Jim needs to fit his theoretical knowledge in with the activity of the world about him, so that he may be the well-rounded gentleman that we expect him to be. Jim, a well-read man, next to eating, likes to argue.

We sec "Jim" as a lively young man, as a good student and as one who possessed a natural athletic inclination. As a student, though he designates no particular subject as his favorite, "Jim" passed gracefully and easily over such difficult hurdles as philosophy, physics and business administration. In the way of recreation "Jim" always managed to find time for a little game of handball or basketball. On many occasions he came into an afternoon class after having spent his free hours in a game with a group of friends. It is rumored about the campus that "Jim” enjoys social functions very much as a means of relaxation from the arduous work of study. However, we offer this rumor without any verification. Since he did so well during his entire course at Fordham, we may justly look forward with "Jim” to continued success. One Hundred Seventy-oneCouncil ot Debate ?. 4; Sodality I. 3. John J.

A light and gifted speaker, he always lias something ready for the occasion and whenever a difficulty arises, he shows himself to be an inventive and resourceful thinker. A keen student, he knows his subjects, not as phrases, but as something he thoroughly understands. There is a thought behind everything he says, and many times he has proven himself in the lecture hall by his analysis and interpretation of difficulties. He is known as an unusual student; but his interest has been confined not only to studies, for he has found time to take an active interest in extra-curricular activities which have served as an outlet for that boundless energy which is his. We know that some day "Jack” will be listed among our most successful friends, for there is a bright and assuring future before him. One Hundred Seventy-twoWalter E. Lawlor, A.B.

It has been his good fortune to possess that rare gift—a perfect sense of humor, laughing just as heartily at a joke on himself as one on the other fellow. Walter is ever smiling, ever happy, ever eager to bring a smile to the lips of everyone else. During his four years of college life he has proven himself to be one of the most agreeable and likable fellows of the class by coming in possession of an ever-widening circle of staunch friends. A substantial build and sporting ways nicely balance such achievements. Handball playing, basketball and baseball have always claimed him as their advocate. Our wonder is increased when we find beneath this gracious personality a steady firmness of purpose, betokening a sturdy and well-balanced development of character.

Whenever a classmate had a difficult accounting problem to solve he sought out "Jack” as one who was always capable and willing to help; for he was one who did not permit athletics to interfere with his studies—and one of the most willing to share his knowledge with others. It is little wonder that "Jack’s” friends can be found not only in every class on the campus, but also wherever he traveled abroad.

Ills off-time diversions include reading, handball and dancing. "Joe” is by no means a dogmatist nor a doctrinaire, but he does maintain strongly that most undergraduate failures are due to the tendency to "cut” class and lack of attention to lectures.

Starting with a cheery "hello” in the morning, he passes the day with his inevitable smile ever present. Realizing his misstep in Freshman, "Tom” saw fit to become a Fordhamite and so with the coming of Sophomore year—came "Tom.” Despite the fact that "Tom” has two brothers in that noble order of Fathers who teach us, he is not inclined that way. Instead, with bristling hair and a shout of joy, he hails every passing ambulance whose noisy approach sets him instantly looking for the proud interne. In other words, "Tom” aspires to the medical profession with such ardor as is worthy only of a real scientist, and if such ardor is any criterion—our bar’s off to a future great surgeon—maybe in the Army. The figure that "Tom” cuts in his officer’s uniform is the envy of many an underclassman. "Tom” himself takes great pride in the uniform and, while a modest fellow, believes that the uniform attracts the public eye. With all fairness, and slight touch of envy, we must admit that it does—on "Tom.” One Hundred Seventy-eightVKlalicy 1. 2. S. I.

He has kept free of most of the dances and banquets, but those who know him testify to his quiet but accomplished social activities over the river in Brooklyn. "Still water runs deep.” All "Jim’s” serious thoughts, and there are many, he tries to keep to himself, but a few of them show to his intimates. He is sentimental, but does not want to be, and is uncompromising in his opinion of childish actions. He reads avidly, and is a real literary analyst. All unnecessary activity is taboo with him. Mr. McConville’s profession is chosen to be teaching and he is a great English and classical scholar. He likes history but not as a subject, only as a means to fill out his knowledge of the present and past in human activity, the better to study religious and social questions. He tends to the speculative pursuits in his serious moods. "Jim” may well be remembered as a genius or a forgotten poet, depending only on himself. One Hundred Eiehly-jour Bernard F. McCreesii, B.S.

From the list of these alone you could get some estimate of "Bernie.” The fact that he has been a worker in all fields, social, physical, mental, and charitable, shows that he is a man of well-rounded character.

To know "Ed" and not to like him is impossible, for he is a well-balanced gentleman, a humorist par excellence, an athlete and an excellent debater. He is a natural leader and captain of that fair group of Fordhamices known as the "Squadron,” which at regular intervals honored Worcester, Boston and points south with their presence. As a Freshman "Ed” devoted his time to swimming and the Glee Club, but during the remainder of his four years turned most earnestly to forensics and had the honor of repeatedly defending Alma Mater in Intercollegiate debates. In the literary world he is partial to O’Neill, Poe and Burns, and in the world of sport his preferences arc swimming and basketball. We have a strong suspicion, however, that his choice of Rosemont, as his favorite girl’s college, is not influenced solely by his sister’s attendance there. In parting, we rest assured that "Ed,” with his sparkling wit. charming personality and brilliant intellect, will cut a wide swath in his chosen field of Law.

If we had this faculty, we could describe "Mac” for you. But the faculty is not ours and the feeble attempts we make to put what we know and feel in this book only serve to heighten our regard lor him. "The man with the perpetual smile,” some might call him, and others might emphasize his everlasting good humor. But there is something deeper and fuller than that which makes him only "Mac.” Shall we call it the power to understand and the willingness to sympathize or just say it is the singleness of purpose and the set ideal? Even these words don’t seem to say the right thing, but whatever it is, it may be just ordinary to others but it means a lot to us. One Hundred Eighty-eightCharles F. McEnroe, A.B. Xavier High CHEERFULNESS, according to an old quotation, opens, like Spring, all the blossoms of the inward man. This we found especially true in our friendship with "Charlie.” His happy ability to dispel gloom and revive spirit was remarkable. Because lie was always as ready to tell a funny story as he was diligent in unraveling the tautology of philosophy, Charlie’s presence was always welcome whether on a Boston trip or at a hilarious "B. L. I.” affair. Born and bred, literally, in the shadow of Old Rose Hill, "Mac’s” enthusiasm is hard to equal when he talks of things Fordham. Imbued with the true Fordham spirit, he believes there should be a greater congeniality among the fellows; and he honestly believes (and will argue the question to the hilt) that the "Ram” football team deserved All-American mention hi toto. Such ardor, added to the cheery disposition and intellectual acuteness that are "Charlie’s,” have made his friendship a valued one. Its memory will not soon fade.

With a remarkable sense of humor he keeps you in good spirits constantly and he is also an interesting companion when a bit of work is to be done. In the "Rec” room or in the classroom he was always at his best, ready with merry quip or sober opinion—a remarkable tribute to his versatility. On the cinder path or on the board track. "Jerry” was speed personified. A member of the varsity relay team for two years, he brought the Maroon "F” flashing in front many times and gathered for himself a heap of laurels. Indeed, there arc those who call him "Medals” McGrath. He has inclinations towards law, and we know that those about him will be most fortunate in his company. We predict that "Jerry” will be one of the first to attain our common goal—success. One Hundred NinetyJohn A. McInnis, A.B. Xavier I Iigh John, as a rule, has not much to say; but when he does say something, it is worth listening to—for proof of which ask anyone who lias listened to some oi Ins choice jokes. He has an inexhaustible store of most interesting stories which he enjoys telling, and his expression. ’'Have you heard this one?”, is not uncommon. Yet, "For a that, and a’ that, a man’s a man.” And John certainly wins from us the title of both a man and a gentleman. His quiet demeanor and serious countenance is, in fact, really nothing more than the shell for a pointed witticism. He is able to hold sway for hours and hours on a serious discussion of the "Fourth Dimension” or "The Philosophy of Life,” but he always ends up with, "Well, don’t volunteer any of this in class.” During his college career, he made one bad mistake and that was his course in German. German idioms were a nemesis to him. However, lie soon mastered a few important phrases such as "Liebchen” and "Gczund-licit” and the world lay before his feet. In after days, when he steps forward to ask that all-important question, we hope he will remember these words. One Hundred Ninety-oneChristopher. K. McKeever, A.B. Brooklyn Prep. Frugal of words, frugal of emotion, but mighty—that’s Chris.’ Self-control makes him a rock in any storm, for his benignity is there, be he on top oi the world or in the depths of trouble—the lessons of Faith, I lope and Charity have been well learned by ’'Chris.” lie is ready at any time to delve the "Blue Empyrean” to play cards, or enjoy the outdoor sports; duck hunting on Long Island is his favorite recreation. A formal parry or dance, every so often, balances the weeks of solitary study which "Mac” considers it his duty to give to the problems of philosophy and current events. The real, humanly faulty "Chris” is known only to those few intimates whom he sacredly reserves as his friends. To others, he seems superhuman in his precise performance of duty. He scorns trivial things which waste time; and would rather analyze a situation than participate in it. This knack of being objective with people and things is a quality that will make him preeminent in the law profession, which lie is preparing to enter. One Hundred Ninety-twoJames [.

However, this 0 did not diminish his popularity, for as soon as he entered our midst he displayed qualities that have gained for him the respect and admiration of both his fellow-students and teachers. Quiet and reserved by nature, "Jim” possesses an ideal temperament. He is of the type whose dependability is so constant, and in whom so much confidence is placed that we do not realize what it means to us until we have been deprived of it. His frankness and loyalty are admired by all who know him and his humor contains wisdom cloaked in the garments of mirth. Next we come to "Jim,” the student. Always well up in his studies lie could more than hold his own in any branch of philosophy. A man who can so devote his energies to an ideal which he sets before himself must succeed. It is with this in mind, "Jim,” that we wish you fair weather on the sea of life. One Hundred Ninety-threeMimes and Mummers 2, 3. 4; Scape Crew 2. 5.

No matter what the obstacle. ’ Joe” takes it in stride, overcomes it, and returns to the ordinary without so much as a ruffled hair as evidence of any unusual effort on his part. Perhaps the most outstanding feature of "Mac’s” character is the subtle, slightly ironical sense of humor which is his. Many a classmate has been the object of his humorous darts, and gone off, unaware of its import until a leisure moment some time later gave him the opportunity to ponder its content. It is "Joe’s” keenest delight to have one of these jets of wit recalled some time later by its unsuspecting target. “Joe” intends to follow the footsteps of his father and brother in the medical profession, and we know that his keenly scientific trend of mind will serve him in good stead, both in his medical studies and in his professional career thereafter.

Versatile, he utilizes his time from early rising to late slumber. Studies preempt a certain portion of his time, but not to the exclusion of other and sundry, though all lawful, pursuits. He is a linguist, a musician, a scientist, and these qualities he combines with a close adherence to Catholic ideals of conduct. In his stay at Fordham, his Alma Mater has given knowledge and broadening to "Mac”; to her he has returned something in jollity, in fellowship, in life.

"Joe’s” personality is so quietly forceful that to some he appears unobtrusive, to others, a real leader. There is a unique combination of ability and modesty which draws people to know him better. With his more serious activities. "Joe” mixes enough recreation to keep the warmth in his smile. Among sports, he is given to swimming and handball, while in the social world he has saved many a party with his keen wit. Still, he is most rigorous in the line of duty and has an insight into the business life. His greatest asset is his silent control of himself and others, which is essential to the life’s work he has chosen—teaching.

There arc no affections about "Pete” but, under his unassuming mien, we find a wealth of sound knowledge indicative of genuine intelligence. "Pete” never sought the plaudits of his fellows nor wished to be the center of attention but was content with the obvious though unspoken admiration of his fellows toward him. "Pete” has been through all four years of college the same quiet and genial classmate, a man whose company all have enjoyed. His enviable air of good will and his perpetually pleasant disposition have earned him a host of friends whose affection will not vanish with the passing of years. We feel sure that, without the companionship of men like "Pete,” college life would lack much of its attraction and would not instil in us such poignant memories.

Perhaps tlie most striking tiling about ''Con’' is liis personality. His is a unique disposition. Always in the right mood for every situation, ever ready with the right word at the right time, he is welcome wherever he goes. Do not, however, think that he is excessively amiable, for such is not the case. Let him beware who thinks that "Con” is "easy.” We have seen in him the wrath of Caesar and have trembled at its force. Moreover, he is noted for his ability to distinguish. Time and again he has settled a heated argument by a cogent word or two that could not be denied. There are no digressions in his or his opponents’ arguments. "Connie" sees to that. To the lair sex, he is particularly charming, judging by the way in which they hang on to his every word, l or this and for many other reasons he should reach the top of the medical profession. That he will succeed we have no doubt, for wc know the kind of fellow "Connie” is. One Hundred Ninety-eightRobert J. Malang, A.B. Princeton Prep. Four years ago in Freshman "E,” "Bob" distinguished himself by his knowledge and love of the Classics and his appreciation for the worth-while things in life. Very much the student, he devoted more than the usual length of time to his studies, but in so doing he characterized himsell", not as a "grind" but rather as one who had drunk of the font of knowledge and found the taste pleasant. Always eager and willing to support any scholastic endeavor, "Bob ’ never suffered for lack of popularity. In all truth, he became the booking agent for entertainment whenever a banquet or "get-together” were planned. He very probably fitted this position as no other could, since we have learned from outside sources that our "booking-agent” is himself an actor of exceptional ability. Indeed we can recall one occasion when "Bob” was so taken up in his avocation that he appeared at noon in the "cafe” his face red with grease paint. This was necessitated by a stage performance of the previous night. One Hundred Ninety-nineRobert J. Malone, A.B. Hackensack High UR°n Posscsscs the happy faculty of making lasting friends. A genial fellow, JD his rare wit and infectious smile bring cheer wherever he goes. But like all great men he has his weakness. It seems that "Bob” does not exactly understand why others do not always agree with him, especially on philosophical subjects. This, no doubt, is one of the many reasons he is such an accomplished debater. On more than one occasion he has covered himself with glory in the debating society. This ability, coupled with the fact that lie doggedly and perseveringly pursues whatever he sets out to attack, usually extracts a very reluctant but mandatory assent from his victim. But by no means is "Bob” solely interested in intellectual achievements. I le also enjoys basketball, and as a swimmer has displayed considerable talent. Thus when we look at "Bob” critically and from a general point of view, lie is quite an all-around man, having many interests and diversions. Two HunchedChemists' Club J. •». Francis A. Mangini, Jr., B.S. Fordham Prep. A seemingly endless curiosity and thirst for knowledge is "Frank’s” most striking characteristic. Many a lecture has been given added and practical value by the persistent queries of our "mighty atom.” His work has gained him from one of his professors the salutation of "the genius in swadding-clothcs.” "Frank’s” leisure time is usually spent in speculation over some abstract problem in the realm of physics, chemistry or higher mathematics and his ponderings have been productive of some very startling conclusions which he is ever ready to expound. Flis intention is to enter the field of mechanical engineering, in which we know he will be a marked success. His taste runs so definitely to physical and mathematical problems that he cannot but succeed in any associated work. Continue in the quest for knowledge of truth which you have begun so auspiciously and show the same zeal in your defense of what you believe to be right, which you have shown at Fordham, "Frank,” and the world is yours for the taking.

His favorite avocation is fishing and his favorite study is Greek, a fair combination, for each requires the same amount of patience in pursuing it. He believes that success is achieved by diligent application to each individual task, slighting none to the benefit of others. After graduation, "Lou" will follow the teaching profession, probably in Albany. Favorite amusements of his arc swimming and mystery fiction; he has another, but it is of so strictly private a nature that to reveal it would be to rend the veil of personality from "Lou”; let it suffice to say that he supports the Democratic platform unqualifiedly.

It is this singular attribute so characteristic of his personality that calls forth admiration and praise of the manliness it exempli ties. Yet sincerity alone is not what has cemented our friendship with him in the past four years. It is only the means of bringing us into closer contact with the other eminent qualities that bespeak his nature. For indeed, "Frank” is so unassuming that unless you knew him as he really is. his genial disposition and willingness to help others would never be appreciated to their fullest extent. "Frank’s” field of endeavor has been well chosen. He has all the requisites for a great doctor, especially his aptitude in the sciences.

This we believe to be the greatest compliment we could pay to any man and we most sincerely mean it. The same loyalty that he shows to his friends is manifest in his love for his college. He is truly a Fordham man in everything that the term signifies. "A Fordham man is loyal: he is loyal to his teams, he is loyal to his fellows, he is loyal to his Alma Mater. ...

Mahony by the brilliance of his answers during the Minor Logic Specimen in Junior year. To be called upon in the "Specimen” is a special distinction granted only to those who have a particular aptitude for philosophical study. Gifted with a gracious personality, a keen mind, and a taste for things cultured, "Harry" is well equipped for any field of endeavor he may wish to pursue.

When we speak of his quiet personality we do not imply that it is negative and unattractive, for those of us who know him intimately have come to like him best for the keen wit which sparkles forth so often and so aptly. In these days of grating and ribald humor, it is indeed refreshing to come upon a man possessed of a flashing, honest sense of humor.

He divides his time in three equal parts, one allotted to stud), one to work, and the last to recreation, and never docs he permit any of these to conflict with the others. Sport in any of its diverse forms is "Mike’s” favorite avocation but more especially basketball, in which he distinguished himself during the intcrclass tournaments. In the field of literature he prefers a good historical novel or a batch of essays by G. K. Chesterton. Medicine has beckoned to him and so the immediate future for "Mike” means four years as a disciple of Hippocrates.

When not engaged in purely physical diversions, he prefers the theatre to all other forms of recreational activity. In disposition, 'Joe” is pleasant and cheerful, but does not believe in wasting words and energy in idle talk. I lis parting advice to the undergrad is to derive as much as possible from every course during college years; he leaves no formula for success, but in keeping with his nature believes in achieving it before speculating about it.

But he just seems to have the knack of keeping quiet at the right moment. How often have we observed him enjoying that perfect repose and solitude that comes only to the mind at ease! On these occasions he has always been the subject of our greatest envy, for how anyone can be at perfect ease in the midst of a trying lecture puzzles us. But let us stop here; perhaps someone will accuse him of being asleep and we would never infer that. But, perchance, someone has received the wrong impression of Jim” from our brief discussion. Silence doesn’t mean that one is inactive and Jim’s" activity speaks for itself. We have only to witness the number of activities beneath his name to find he is a man of many talents.

Iniroducing "Jack" Mu'.lcn is like cranking an auto that has a self-starter. There’s no need of it. Neither a clever penman nor a talented orator could ever describe his sunny smile, good-natured ness and genial disposition. For these attributes, so characteristic of " Jack,” lose their personal fiber when subject to the interpretation of definition or analysis. Indeed, "Jack” will never be without friends. We must confess, in fact, we have never seen him without a retinue of companions. Be it a heated discussion on some philosophical viewpoint, a debate on the "pros” and "cons” of Ford ham's prowess or an exposition on the merits of Broadway favorites, one will always find him in the midst of the conclave, expounding with almost unbelievable sagacity a theory, with which, somehow or another, the audience does not seem to quite agree. But "Jack’s” penchant for disputation is insatiable, and his ability to bring forth hitherto unknown arguments usually leaves his hearers with the idea that perhaps there are two solutions to the problem after all.

In pure literature I.eo prefers the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe to that ot all others. Like many of his fellow students he holds the basic principle for success is concentration on the task at hand and the completion of this before another is undertaken; he also believes any underclassman can progress well if he remembers that his only task during the four years is hard study. Gifted with a fine voice, he has devoted himself to the work of the Glee Club during his entire stay at the University, and has proven himself a valuable member of that organization.

"Mike’s” smile has been something of an envy to everybody. He has that something which enables him to give his smile to all, without being false or artificial. And when you see him smile you know it is a friendly gesture—his way of saying "hello.” There will be other men to take his place at Fordham when he is gone, but we doubt if there will ever be anyone who can fill his place or make us forget him.

His future is business, preferably insurance or stocks and bonds, toward which held he has inclined for a long time. Wisconsin was well represented in this son, whose clear thinking was like a clear, cool current of air through the heart of discussion. The principles of “Bill’s” life are well founded and if he builds on them proportionately in the years to come, he will rear a structure of which he and his college may be proud. Two Hundred NineteenI Vincent R. Napoli, B.S. New York Military Academy A close counterpart of the famous "Nap” of history is our "Nap” pictured above.

And, like his famous model, his tastes run to things military as shown by his attendance at N. Y. M. A. In class, a good student, his interests have been divided between chemistry and biology, with biology slightly favored. After his duties with regard to his studies have been completed, he devotes his time to pleasurable pursuits. In line with this policy he can be found almost any afternoon in the "Rec” room indulging in a game of bridge. If the stories we have heard are true, his ability is of no mean order.

The fusion of a keen, steady mind with an almost lethargic body produces the impression of a "master mind”—for he is a clear and analytic observer of people and places. Never a harsh word or tart retort has passed his lips; rather, with his tales of the sunny South, he is a most entertaining conversationalist. "Jack” is preparing for business, but is wide-awake to the possibilities of other fields. This man of peculiar energy accomplishes a great deal while he remains as a sphinx.

He is usually calm and deliberate in all lus proceedings. But when speed and accuracy arc demanded he always manages to be the man of the hour. It took Descartes all his life to build up a system of philosophy and it took "Frank" fourteen seconds to refute it. He’s that kind of a fellow. But philosophy doesn’t occupy all of "Frank’s” time. He isn’t afraid of hard work and makes the most of every opportunity that comes his way. A man who portions work and pleasure to their best advantages and who always has time to lend a helping hand to the fellow of less ability than himself.

Walking is his favorite physical diversion and smoking strong pipes and strong tobaccos is his most enjoyed pastime. He gives no advice to the undergraduate for he believes the real undergraduate needs none; according to "Doc,” if an undergraduate needs advice he will not remain an undergraduate for very long. A life devoted to professing English and its many and diverse allied branches is "Doc’s” position in this world. About the next world he is not worried, for if lie is good enough at his task in this, coupled with a knowledge of the many tongues of which he is master, "Doc” believes it will be easy to secure the position of translator at the Eternal Court.

Fordham Prop. Four years at Fordham have won George a host of friends. We need not seek far for the reason. A radiant disposition that found free expression in an easy, ready smile revealed the general warmth of his personality. Never have we known him to wear a frown, and yet he was not the "court jester.” When occasion demanded, George turned the cheerful smile to a serious mien, the merry quip to a keen observation and so demonstrated the versatility that marks a real man. From what we have seen of George, we can predict for him a life of conquest —of conquest over whatever obstacles confront him—and the reward of conquest—triumph. For his armor is crowned with Fortune’s choicest weapon— versatility. An all-around good fellow, he was welcomed everywhere and was accepted by all as one of the best of us, and the judgment of classmates is ever a critical one. His friendship is one to be valued—let us hope that it be one that years will not fade nor glory dim. Tuo HunJteJ Fnrty-iixJohn 11. Reilly, 13.S.

We had always considered him a chosen disciple of Archimedes and Dalton, but recently he disclosed that his association was one effected hv dint of application rather than by natural aptitude, for John’s secret ambition has always been to read F.uripides and Aristophanes in the purest of pure Greek. After four years’ sojourn with the sciences, "J. R.” has elected to set himself in the marts of commerce. Although neither of the two major political parties nor their respective platforms interest him, the consensus of opinion is that he would make an excellent politician, for he has rendered some excellent opinions on forensic topics when one found him in the proper mood. His hatred for our system of oligarchical democracy forces us to anticipate a tri-partisan system of government to rise some day from his tireless efforts. ‘J. R.,” whatever your final goal may be, we are sure that your pleasing personality and ready wit will expedite your arrival, for they were the two characteristics that marked you as a man worth knowing during your stay at college.

Those happy hours in gym arc the ones in which we recall "Gump” to best advantage. Sure-footed and quick of hand, he and three of his pals would engage in a lively game of handball sharply punctuated every now and then by loud outbursts over the status of the score. With feigned wrath, "Andy” would coldly glance at his rivals and then with surprised amusement would shout, "O.K. boys, let’s go.” Then, when the game was concluded, on to the locker-room where Mr. Reitwiesner would indulge in several moments of "towel-chucking,” much to the discomfiture of those unfortunates who, in unguarded moments, exposed themselves to his unerring aim.

We do not know how far his ambition will be realized, but we do know that if a real and absorbing interest, a willingness to work and a deep love of his fellow-man can help in the attainment of this end. "Joe’s” ambition will be realized far beyond his fondest hopes.

He has been most active in and about the campus. As a member of the photographic department of the present Maroon, we arc indebted to him for artistic studies which are most refreshing in this day of realism.

Such a character is the quiet, modest and unassuming John Richardson. Student, athlete, activity man, what more can one ask? John is our idea of the perfect Fordham man who more than fulfilled our fondest hopes. He is an athlete of no mean ability, though one would never learn about it if they were to ask him. He is a good swimmer, a better basketball player, and an excellent baseball player. It was his wish, however, to let his ability "waste its fragrance" in the interclass games, and varsity coaches were not aware of the presence of this gem in the college ranks. Yet, this was not the case in the classroom, where his ability quickly placed him in the limelight whether he willed it or not. He also has that extra something, rhar great quality of being able to rise to the occasion when necessity calls. Whether in games with the score close or in the classroom when a "prof" would pull a surprise exam, "Rich” would come through gloriously. Thus he will go through life, rising where others fall, conquering when the odds arc heavy, always the Fordham man. Fordham is proud of John and wishes him the success which he so richly deserves.

As one who has achieved his purpose by hard work, he recommends it to others who likewise desire to succeed. The present age holds no attraction for John, with its ever-present unemployment, taxation and over-production; he would, if given his choice, prefer to have lived in some past age.

For "Frank” has become part of Rose Hill, adapting himself to his surroundings from the very beginning, and achieving a position of respect and acclaim. Unpretentious and reticent, he has never tried to force himself to the front, but has always gone about in a businesslike manner, letting his actions speak for themselves, working diligently and patiently, displaying a zeal and an acumen that have stamped him as a man of ability and worth. A student whose scholarship is beyond reproach, a friend whose companionship is to be sought after and a worker whose efforts are never in vain. The only thing we hold against you. "Frank,” is the fact that you didn’t join us sooner. Tiro Hundred Sixty-nineChemises’ Club 2, 3. 4. George Spota, B.S. Ewinder Childs High George is a '’great little fellow” and will do almost anything his pal, Frank Sorrentino, does. The combination has come to be known as the "electron-proton combination”—we think that George is the electron. When anybody asks where George is, we say "Look for 'Sorry’.” George has probably gone through Fordham with as much ease and success as anybody ever has done. Endowed with a keen intellect, he never hesitates lor an answer—which is invariably correct. Although he has not spoken very much about it, we suspect that he will study medicine. What a diagnostician he will make—for that is what he has been for four years—telling others with a cheerful smile where the error lies. In parting, George, may we give you one final admonition? "Pay as much attention to all duties after your graduation as you always have to your activities here at Fordham and all will be means to your attainment of success.” Two Hundred SeventyWalter J. Stapleton, A.B. All Hallows Institute Ix the fall of ’2$ "Butch” was the backbone of the splendid All-Hallows eleven and was especially noted for the bull-like ferocity of his line plunges. Therefore, in ’29, when he joined the Frosli ranks at Fordlum, he was no stranger and was instantly recognized as the meteor that had taught many of us the taste of grid dust for the first time. Although "Stapc” found an avenue for his strength in Frosh football, the greatest part of his vitality was expended in handball. So seriously did he take the game, and so mighty was his return-serve that not infrequently did the exertion throw him to the floor for a ten-foot slide. "Scape" invariably ridiculed new suggestions, but once a suggestion is undertaken, you can bank on the "Meteor” to be in the thick of it. That is the type of fellow he is—loyal to the hilt but too stubborn to admit it. Soon after graduation some of his friends are sailing to the South Seas and he is expected to go along as one of the crew. So far he is disdainful; but you wager that next fall "Stape’s” return mail will be postmarked "Tahiti.” Two Hundred Seventy-onePasquai.f. A. Statile, B.S. Dickinson High After four years’ preparation at the Dickinson High School, Jersey City, Pasquale ambled leisurely to the chemistry laboratory and he has made his lome there since. Statile is a chemist, yea, even to rival Lavoisier and Priestly. However, on one point he has remained adamant throughout his undergraduate years, he has absolutely refused to degenerate the virginal traits of pure chemical science by adulterating them with the world-renowned "coffee-bean research.” Under the sympathetic guidance of the instructors, he has become firmly convinced that for the welfare of organic chemistry, coffee beans should be restricted to culinary activities. Then, too. he is a quiet chap known for his astute qualities. He never intrudes, passing away his college years amid the music of tinkling test tubes and the odor of hydrogen sulphide. He is an apt illustration of the depth of still water—nothing has escaped his eye, and yet many of us know the welcome power and ability that lie behind his unassuming appearance.

Xavier High U ’i i k John’s exterior lies .i versatile personality. Equipped with more than usual dramatic ability, he entered lordh.mi and amazed with the versatility of his characterizations. In the varsity play of our Junior year, he interpreted the role of a courtier with all the perfections and grace of an actor of the old school. Yet with equal perfection, he played the part of a burly Irishman in an ensuing production, which moved on to greater triumphs in Philadelphia. Such power will easily find a position in this modern world with its keynote of versatility. With equal success he contributed to the Glee Club and other campus activities. Politically, John is a staunch Democrat, believing that party to be the lesser of two evils. Co-extensive with John’s quiet and likable character is his formula for success, "Do your job well.” Upon investigation, we found that his avocation was fixing things—anything from lamps to situations. Be that as it may, John’s success will ultimately lie in intellectual pursuits because of his keen mind and accomplished personality. Tuo Hundred Seventy-threeFrederick J. Stenson, Jr » B.S. Jamaica High With due deference to "FredV pretensions as an interpreter of business law, it is no exaggeration to say that he will not be remembered for his intellectual propensity by his fellow students, but rather as an inveterate enthusiast of sports. Indeed, this passion has so possessed him that he cherishes the hope of being able to exercise the legal profession in those climes which arc most propitious to the uninterrupted pursuit and perfect realization of this ideal. Wherefore, "Fred” dreams of the Southland where the sun, by its constancy and benignancy, gladdens the heart of one thus constituted. Although "Fred” symbolizes to a great degree the apotheosis of athletes, his success was not limited to this narrow field. After sporadic efforts, lie proved himself an industrious student and though lie never blazed the trails and, unlike "Abou Ben Adhcm,” his name never "led all the rest,” he proved himself superior to those indifferent and phlegmatic students who have no real likes or dislikes.

He came to Fordham to receive, in full, what it had to offer and now leaves it a well-educated young man, ready for the serious affairs of life. "Jack” has always been one of the scholastic leaders of the class. He seems to believe in the axiom, "mens sanas in corpore sano,” for he is adept at sports of any nature, taking a particular interest in swimming and in playing a steady game of basketball. In fact, his swiftness of foot on the court is second only to his ability in the art of dancing. It is said that he can dance one hundred yards faster than Metcalfe can run it. "Jack” won’t let you know that he can sing, but ask anyone in the Glee Club and the answer is, "Yea, verily.” We leave at parting a philosopher and a gentleman, beneath whose subtle phrases and ready wit arc hidden many words of boundless wisdom.

"Gil” has been one of the social lights of the class. His sartorial perfection, his mastery of the social graces, his quiet humor and his dignified demeanor mark him as a gentleman who is at home in any drawing room. Yet he is by no means foppish. Athletics of all kinds find in him a keen, enthusiastic participant. His studies, too. have always received careful preparation despite the multitude of iiis interests. Go on, "Gil,” fascinating those with whom you come in contact, by your warm, sympathetic nature, the while you overcome all obstacles in your path, as you have at college, and you cannot but be a great success in life.

THE music of which he is so fond has refined and softened Vladimir to the point where we may say he is the very epitome of gentility. His interests and accomplishments are many, and. coupled with being a good student, he is a talented musician; he plays the violin, viola, piano and organ and also docs a little composing. The countries visited by him include Czechoslovakia, Germany, Hungary and the United States. "The undergraduate should strive to derive as much as possible from college life, both in learning and in social contacts. Work toward a goal and observe the Golden Rule if you would succeed.” is the only advice Vladimir gives to those who seek his counsel. He is quiet, sensitive, unassuming, and prefers to listen rather than talk. If given Ins choice in the matter he would prefer to have lived in a previous age because it would have afforded greater opportunity to romanticize the common things of life. Vladimir’s plan for his life’s work centers on a chair in some quiet university town.

He seems always to be so completely satisfied with his own company and his own thoughts that none but a chosen few lnvc reached the circle of his intimates. And these few have been fortunate indeed. His character is a delightful blending of the serious and the lighter things. His scholastic work has always been ol a high order, while numerous extra- curricular activities have occupier! his leisure time. Most ol these extra-curricular activities have been centered about the R. O. T. C. unit in which Mario has been a popular and respected figure during the past four years. As a result of his popularity, his military co-workers have bestowed upon him numerous distinctions and honors. It seems utterly useless and unnecessary for us to express our hopes for your future, Mario, for a man of your sterling worth cannot but be a success. Yet we want you to know that our best wishes go with you in all you may do. Two Hundred Seient)-tigbtFrank J. Tomedy, A.B. St. Peter’s Prep IF there's anything to be managed, Frank is the man to do it. In Fordham, every activity he was in felt the force of his efficient business mind, lie keeps to the modern novel as a favorite, and Horace as a hero. Frank is one of the few real, proper "disputers.” With philosophy, his specialty in the academic field, he is a lucid and clever conversationalist in all campus gatherings. But let it not be said that he has no lighter side to his character—for he is an eminent social success in that socially famous state of New Jersey. This man’s success as a student and as a forceful personality is due to the fact that he has a strict sense of form and morality. His communion with the ancients through the medium of Latin and Greek has implanted in him a thorough appreciation of human nature and its working, which will later produce an illustrious leader in the intellectual world. There is every hope that he will attain his ambition to teach in college. Tun HuuJitJ Sfituif-u ncClass v a Freshman: Class Vice President 2 . Hughes Debating Society 1. 2.

Serious occasionally, but never morbid, a clear thinker and an astute observer, we find in him the happy medium of a dependable councillor and a genial com panion.

For in "Jack” are centered a wealth of excellent qualities that combine the best of a score of men in one. His four years here at the University have been varied enough to form a crowded cross-section in the full lives of most of us. Vicissitudes have been frequent and toil has often been his lot, yet "Rube” manages ro grin. Normally quiet and reserved, a long end run will wind him up for a long diatribe on the merits and demerits of Walter Camp’s statistics for 1905. He thinks Roger Hornsby is still the best second baseman and that goes for you. too! Sympathy, a boundless capacity for friendships and absolute integrity arc a few of "lack’s” more vital assets. His philosophy of life can be summed up in Horace’s dictum, "Auream mediocritatem.” Two Hundred Eighty.twoF£K1 Natality I, 2. .4. Spjnisll Club I; h n Si.iry Club I : Council ot De. bite 4. Joseph P.

But precisely how he did it, without having some intuitive insight into the future or first knowing "Joe,” appears to us somewhat ol a mystery. Indeed, nothing could more adequately portray him than that definition. In his four years with us we have come to learn a great deal about Joe” and we have never known him to make an enemy of anyone. Quiet and serious, he leaves the noise-making to the other fellow, and goes about his daily work with a determined and uncomplaining spirit, no matter how difficult the task may be. A keen student of history, he is one fellow who really appreciates a good book, and his extensive readings, no doubt, account for the well direction of his choice. When not engrossed in the pages of his favorite authors he can be found idling away his time in the pool, or busily engaged in a game of bridge. "foe” intends to become a professor and we cannot help but envy the lucky students that come under his tutelage. Two Hiouhvil Eighly-fbu't’John N. Weber, B.S. Poughkeepsie High Here is a man who came to college with a twofold purpose; to develop method and to secure a sense of values. He succeeded in both. A scientist by natural inclination and a philosopher by choice, "Jack” has seen fit to dedicate himself to the held of pure mathematics. I Iis avocation is classical: music and painting, with literature a third choice. Jack” possesses what is usually not in the man of science, and that is idealism; he has demonstrated this by asserting his preference for a previous age when those things, which are now man’s greatest heritage, were developed more from the daring imagination than from the application of scientific principle. He is a pleasant conversationalist and a patient listener, always willing to place himself in the position of the one with whom he is speaking. He expects to teach, and we hope that his dual nature will help to clarify some of the abstractions in "math” that have plagued our undergraduate years.

Indeed, he lus surmounted the hardships of this ordeal with almost unbelievable skill and good fortune. But "Jack” never did let trivialities bother him. Of a serious nature, he has learned the value of conserving one’s energy in order to concentrate on the more important things of life and to this purpose he has succeeded most amiably. Studies have never been a great source ol worry to him. for he has always been able to maintain a standard of high rank. Here is a man whose value is well realized by those with whom he has come in contact, and whose real manliness has made a lasting impression on all of us.

If this lx- so, Fordhams backbone should be a strong one, tor the present Junior Class set itself to work with a will in all the varied pursuits which go to make up college life. On the fields of sport, on the stage, on the debating platform— in fact, wherever there was work to be done, the men of ’34 were to be found. And they have done their work well, for never has college spirit at Fordlum been better than in the past year. A vibrant energy and eager interest in all extra-curricular activities has been characteristic of the Class of ’34 since the day of its entrance. The great things expected of it in former years have been realized, for those men who as Freshmen and Sophomores showed "great promise” have scaled the heights in their performances of this year. On the evenings of December lfth and 16th last, the Mimes and Mummers presented Sir Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s great comedy, "The Rivals.” The choice of the vehicle, of course, was excellent and all will agree that it was done full justice by the actors. In the role of Sir Anthony Absolute. "Bob” C ox gave one of his finest performances. William Scholz, in the role of "Bob” Acres, acquitted himself with honor. "Fred” Frese, in the didicult female character of Julia Melville, gained great applause for his remarkable performance. Behind the scenes, the unseen actors of the play, in the persons of the stage crew and wardrobe men. went about their tasks under the able direction of Leonard Riordan. All the members of this group arc to be heartily congratulated for their great work, which is too often overshadowed by that of the actors. Shortly after the beginning of the school year, a reorganization of the Immaculate Conception Sodality was effected by the Moderator, Fr. Lynch. Although Juniors do not hold offices in this society, this honor being restricted to Seniors, a remarkably Two Hundred Sine!)I no Hundred Ni tty°n6 large attendance at all the meetings lias been noted, owing to the fact that the Junior Class attends almost to a man. The Council of Debate, always a popular activity, includes more than the usual number of third year men in its membership this year. Although they have just graduated tnto the upper strata. Mr Schoutcn tells vis many of them are quite capable of holding their own against all comers. Edward Martin has already represented the college in Intercollegiate Debate and should soon lx followed by others of his class. In the Council Debates, Ralph Lewis, Griffith Scott, James Alberse, Richard Appert % and Michael Broderick have been outstanding figures. In the field of music, too. the class has given a fine account of itself. The Glee Club has already given several concerts, .ill of which have been enthusiastically received. The club was recently heard in an afternoon concert over the air via W'ABC and the Columbia system. They have since received many letters of congratulation. The repertoire of the organization has been greatly enlarged and the annual concert was finer than ever. Among those who were seen and heard on that occasion were Robert Di Pasca, Finbarr Sullivan, John Maier, Joseph Tirdel, John Geiger and William Foley. The latter two were on the Board of Directors. The Band and Orchestra have also received much praise for their fine work. The Band was particularly impressive at tlx football games, where it marched and plated in great style. Captain Hopt has been loud in his praise of the Junior class-men in the organization and is justly proud of their excellent showing. Many social events of the winter season, which were the results of the efforts of the various state clubs, also owe their success in large measure to the support of the Junior Class, which lent a willing hand wherever it was needed to make each affair a success. The Junior Class seems to have taken the old Greek principle of "excellence in both body and mind” to heart. If they excelled all of the classes in mental activities, they have certainly excelled in physical accomplishments. To the Junior Class do wc owe the wonderful success of our football team. Our roving center, our fierce guards, our slashing tackles, our flying ends and our crashing, cutting, plunging backs arc all Juniors. Who can ever forget the sturdiness of that line, the perfect unison of our backs in that memorable St. Mary’s game? One of the country’s most renowned referees said that in that game our eleven was a perfect example of excellent team-work. With head bent and firm step, the crashing of Danowski was the worry of many a center and guard. 11 we saw a man slice off tackle and then cut wc knew it was Cowhig. At times, after a plav wc would look for Del Isola and found him on any and every part of the field with his arms wrapped around the opposing ball-carrier’s legs. He certainly fulfilled the requirements of a roving center. If wc punted out of danger, who would we see as first man down under the ball? None other than our All-American tackle. Walter Uzd.ivinis. Boniishi was always there to break up a lateral pass if the opponent attempted one. In the "pile-ups” Howell’s beaming face would suddenly appear at the bottom of the pile, as though he were coming out of the earth. Need we remind you of our little quarterback? Steadiness in both body and mind are McDermott’s chief characteristics which go to make him the dependable field general be is. We shall never forget those McDermott to Pepper and vice versa passes which have been the deciding factors in several of our important games. Were we to write a bit about all the Juniors who have made football at Ford-ham what it is. we would have several volumes. We can merely mention the names of such dependable men as Howell, Fitzgerald, Keenan. Borden, Doherty, Phil Murphy ind Jarvis and wish them even more success (if that is possible) with their new coach than they had in their Junior year.

Kennedy Kurus Michel ONCE again the winding path of towering elms and the ivy-mantled walls of fair I ordham welcomed the Class of ’3 5 as it returned bronzed and burnished by the summer sun. But in the manner of the proverbial Jekyll and Hyde, the gu.se of a fettered ITcshman had been discarded lor the more becoming role of a sedate Sophomore. Freshman week, which began September 8th, lound the class of ’35 playing the conscientious host to the incoming horde of new men. The customary caps, ties and buttons were distributed to the bewildered Freshmen under the careful supervision of the Vigilance Committee. Chairman "Wallv” Sprouls will sadly acknowledge that a spirited rebellion was staged by the lower classmen. The yoke of Sophomore tyranny was fin a lly overthrown by a hotly contested victory for the new men in track and swimming. In consequence of this amazing triumph the Class of ’3 5 elevated the Freshmen to the heights of heavenly ecstasy by permitting them to forsake the cobbled path for the more dignified sidewalk. The Sophomore reception to the Freshmen was brought to a pleasant close on November 17th when a banquet was tendered to the Class ot 36 at the Knights of Columbus Hotel. By the close of September the entire student body had fallen into the fascinating routine of college life. The extra-curricular activities promptly received their full share of enthusiastic attention. The field of dramatic art afforded the future Shakespearians of Sophomore an opportunity to display their Thespian talents. On the evenings ol December 15th and 16th the Mimes and Mummers presented their annual varsity production. The play selected by the Fordham dramatic association was "The Rivals,” a romantic comedy by Richard B. Sheridan. Father James A. Taaffe, S.J., who directed the members ol the cast, expressed great satisfaction over the magnificent performance of James W. Fogarty and N. Garcia Naranjo of the Class of 3 5. Mr. Fogarty gave an excellent interpretation of the exceedingly difficult role of Mrs. Malaprop, whose grammatical Tuo HiotJnJ . incf)-jomTwo Unttdn'd Shielx-fueeccentricities were a source of heartfelt merriment and contagious laughter. The character of I vdia Languish, a demure and delicate young maiden, was portrayed by Mr. Naranjo and surpassed the usual ability of the amateur. That the Class of ’3 5 has not neglected the spiritual side of college life bather Ignatius Cox, S.J., Moderator of the Holy Rosary Sodality, will solemnly testify. Under the constructive influence of Joseph M. Meagher, Prefect, and Robert F.. Wlme, Secretary, a series of interesting talks by various members has been originated. In fitting tribute to their tireless energy and meticulous efficiency we now extend the laurel crown to those Sophomores who have made Tin Rani one of the foremost college weeklies: To John J. Donovan, Jr., whose humorous and novel column "It’s Possible,” has found great favor with the entire student body. To "Butch” Albert, who has revealed startling information on the splendid success of the Fordham Alumni. To George Appel I, "Wally” Sprouls and John I Ioran, whose entertaining news bits have kept us well informed on college activities. To Jim O’Donovan and Tom Lenahan for their snappy chatter on sporting events. And last but not least to the man behind the press, John Savaresc of the circulation staff "unheralded and unsung.” The proverbial muse must have smiled favorably upon the class litterateurs judging from the unparalleled excellence of the endeavors in the Fordham Monthly. In the first regular issue of the year, the Class of ’3 3 had two able representatives. William F. Cahalan, whose ability for penning verses is not unknown, had another promising contribution entitled "Nocturne.” Herman J. Herbert’s verse translation of tlie "Le Lac of Lamartine” also deserves special recognition. With such bards as these it is extremely doubtful that the Monthly will ever lack poetical talent. The future Websters of Sophomore and Freshmen have been offered ample opportunity by the Hughes Debating Society to practice the art of persuasion. Under the expert guidance of its officers, John P. Mooney, President; Walter A. Sprouls, Vice-President; Charles A. O’Reilly, Secretary, some weekly debates were held to test the argumentative and refutative ability of its members. The Class of ’3 3 has provided Fordham with some of her ablest and most skilled athletes. Football and all the glamorous excitement of last fall cannot be thought of without at the same time recalling the deeds of "Fearless Freddie” Harlow and other members of the squad who are members of the class. Freddie is one of the most colorful and talkative athletes who has ever graced a Fordham team. On the field or off he was always an occasion for a hearty f ordham cheer or at least an opportunity to talk about his deeds. The Class of ’3 5 also presented "Cav” with the sturdy and reliable Wolfcndalc, Boyle, Waldron, Fenton, Sarausky and Nitka. With all the latent football energy and ability that this group represents we feel sure that next year’s team will be something to be proud of. The advent of the basketball season provided an opportunity for more of the members of the class to cover themselves with glory and reflect credit on their school. The diminutive couple, Danny Rinaldo and Howie Lashua, provided some excellent "basketccring” as well as providing a vital part of some of those late desperate rallies that provided many of the highlights of the past season from the spectators’ viewpoint. "Sugar” Kane. Michel and Estwanick likewise aided the basketball team in its valiant if not loo highly successful efforts. It was in the game against City College that the Sophs were the most prominent, for the starting line-up consisted of four Sophomores, all of whom rendered an excellent account of themselves in the encounter against the strong City five. Jack Coffey will likewise find the Class of ’3 3 a profitable source for material. Freddie Harlow again comes into the limelight (remember Freddie at the smoker?) as a sturdy backstop. Estwanick is looked upon as a promising hurlcr. Howie I ashua, George Sherry, Danny Rinaldo and Tony Sarausky, til promising candidates, have shown up well in the pre-season practice and in the earlier games. Two Humhtii Xhieiy-tixFRESHMANThe Freshman Class oi FICERS Olin J. Slam an, Jk. Daniel T. Hegarty Vincent J. McLaughlin Da n i 11 C. C v R N A N President Vit v-President Secretory Treasurer ON the twelfth of September last some four hundred and fifty rather sheepish-looking products of high and prep schools wandered in small groups tip the walk leading to Freshman Hall, Fordham University. These young gentlemen were soon to become the members of the largest freshman class in Fordham’s history, but of that they thought not, for theii minds were made uneasy by the disquieting rumors which had to do with their personal safety. They were, to put it colloquially, wondering what it was all about. There was little time for such reflection, for all were soon summoned to the auditorium where we were welcomed by the Rev. Charles J. Deane, S.J., who urged us to begin our careers at Fordham in the right way. Thus began the ceremonies of Freshman week. During the week we were addressed by the moderators of the various college organizations and exhorted to get into the spirit of extra-curricular activity. The rules of the college were also explained in detail, with full emphasis on the dire penalties accompanying their infractions. But the feature of the week was the rivalry, friendly if you will, with rhe Sophomores. I he president of our traditional enemies greeted us in the auditorium on the first day of the week with much apparent pleasure and what might be called malicious relish and apprised us of the fact that he and his fellow-classmates would attempt to acquaint the incoming Freshmen with Fordham customs and traditions during the coming weeks. Their efforts, it seemed, were actuated by a friendly interest in our welfare, which prompted them to provide a Freshman cap, tie, handbook and banquer in return for five dollars! The importance of obeying Sophomore rules and meekly (sensibly was rhe exact word used) submitting to their big-brother attempts to initiate us was also impressed upon us. The next few days were darkened by the unmannerly conduct of our self-appointed guardians who insisted upon keeping Freshmen off the sidewalks, teaching Two Hundred Sint I;.-eightTwo Hundred Ninety-ninethem to sing the college songs, forcing them to roll up their pants and requesting them to lug trunks up numerous stairs. We were at first rather cautious in our resistance, fearing to stir things up too much, hut a few days of experience and banding together bred an increasing disrespect for and even utter disregard of the Sophomoric rules. The annual snake dance was held with usual hilarity providing fun for all excepting the cops of Fordham Road. The galling tyranny of the Sophomores was scheduled to last till the end 01 the football season provided they won at least two of three planned contests. We, however, had our own ideas of who was going to win, for by a dint of hard work, we defeated our elders in swimming and track (much to their utter dismay) and we even think that we were entitled to victory in the much-disputed tug-of-war. This auspicious beginning seems only to have been a forecast of other and greater things to come. Space permits the enumeration of but a few of the class’ outstanding achievements. Our success so far in athletics, if it be any true criterion, indicates that in this field the class will be one of the foremost in Fordham’$ history. The football team merely breezed through an undefeated season, most of its time being used in toying with the varsity in practice. A number of outstanding players were discovered, among them being Jellison, Sabo, Brennan, Miskinis and O’Neill. With such men eligible for the varsity next season. Fordham adherents need have no apprehension. The tennis tournament, another early fall feature, was the occasion for several future court stars to display their wares. Noah was the outstanding Frosh racketeer. The cross-country showed up well and despite the fact that it had no previous competition and was unused to the Van Cortlandt Park course, placed fifth in the Freshman Inrercollegiates. Jerry Calijonc led the team, running a fine race to finish third. The indoor track team has accomplished the good things foretold for it after the Frosh-Soph meet. An exceptionally strong mile relay team composed of Smith. Daugherty, Nolan and Hilbert has been developed. Arthur Jannell shapes up as the best sprinter Fordham has had in many years. He carried off many honors during the winter and won the K. of C. 60-meter handicap in the remarkable time of 6-8 seconds. Calijone and Starrs in the distance events complete a well-balanced team. The Fordham basketball fans—and they arc many—have good cause for rejoicing in this year’s remarkable Freshman quintet, which seems to be the best in a good many years. The team includes such stars as Feinachcr, DePhillips, Brennen, Cassel, Young, O’Brien and Fritzche, as well as many capable reserves. The Varsity Coach will be more than overjoyed to have such material for next year’s varsity. Athletics is not the only field in which the class is represented. Other branches of activity have received our attention with similar results. The Hughes Debating Society, which includes the Freshman and Sophomore debaters, profited by the talent of McDermott, RufTo and Norris. No less than five of the class were in the Varsity play. These were Messrs. Welch, Hunt, Farley, Gregory and Shouldice and all gave remarkable performances. The musically talented among ns have gone out for the Glee Club, Orchestra and Band. In all three organizations we are well represented. Future editors are now toiling for Tiir. Ram. Our outstanding man of letters, Thomas J. Fit morris, became an associate editor of the Monthly to which he has contributed numerous poems within the short space of a few months. He has charge of the "Antidote,” the humor section, which had been dropped for some time. Large numbers of the class have enrolled in the Sodalities and the language clubs and several arc engaged in writing for the French Annual. With baseball and track remaining tor the athletically minded and the Freshman One-Acts in the near future, there arc yet many opportunities for the Freshmen to display their talents. From a group of high school graduates we have now developed into a united, wfll-organi ed class, which has taken its place among the best in Fordham history. This account may seem egotistical, but we claim that the facts justify all that has hecn said. Three Hundredm p.-i U The West Point Trip if ERE is the gay custom, the merry, un-daunted invasion of the majestic, grim battlements of the Nation's army college, to wander serenely over the summer lawns, to clamber undignifiedly in grave inspection of fortress and gun—and with just a wee touch of envy, to heap multifold quips on the trim figure of the cadet. Then the game, with the secret longing that the result may show the faultless, gray hero to develop athletic feet of clay. But afterwards, in victory or defeat, the flashing ranks of our hosts swing supreme in their own great tradition of the sunset parade. The lordly Hudson receives us once more and each Eordhamite displays that latent ability to dance in any moiety of space. A fine rival, a great game, a breathless trip and mayhaps the only one that really seeks down to each student, and sweeps him with all his fellows in an all Ford ham rally and an all Fordbam day. «wi 'i—Wl ’jsr-y. jmerous urunc to lug tru fearing 10 bred an if the 1 1 11 - . football s iks up n itir thim up too Spec up t st ra; :hcin to r ere at 1 i tew da' ■ of even titter dis usual hilarity me i it )gh ot but a e of chi an undefeated A number i or. it ore, v as ,s rhe out :ompo ieC7ed intou -ith rhe varsity in u m being Jcllison.

Under the inspiring guidance and spiritual direction of their Moderator and the practical leadership of their Prefect, the members have participated in the various works of charity and of Catholic Action sponsored by the sodality. As a member of the Catholic College Action Guild, the sodality, represented by Daniel J. Ahearn, contributed in no small measure to the success of the programs broadcast weekly over Station WLWL of the Paulist League. The work of delivering talks before Newman Clubs in the public high schools throughout the metropolis lias made splendid progress under the supervision of John S. Stella. The scope of the missionary and catechetical activities, directed by James S. Conway, has been greatly extended. Another feature of the sodality has been the collection of food and clothing for the poor. Edward C. Martin, 34. has been in charge of this latter work. The Senior members who have taken an especially active part in the many charitable operations of the sodality are William A. Dunn, John I . Sheahan and Vladimir J. Svitak.

Farrell, ’3 3 Secretary THE Parthenian Sodality is for resident students, under the invocation of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the patronage of St. Alovsius. It is the oldest of Fordham’s organizations; it is. in fact, older than lordham itself, having been founded on February 2, 1837, at St. Mary’s College in Rayvillc, Kentucky. In 1846 it was brought by Father Lcgonais, S.J., to l ordham. The avowed purpose of the Parthenian Sodality is "to procure to the members a more easy and efficacious means of leading, now and hereafter, a Christian like life.” The weekly Mass and devotion in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary are an invaluable aid to the members in the attainment of such an ideal. The sodality’s chief interest consists in cooperating with the other sodalities of the College in holding outdoor May devotions in the quadrangle around the statue of Our Lady, which was erected there in 1887, in commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of the Parthenian Sodality. A solemn Mass and reception of members into the sodality are held at the close of the school year. Three Hundred Th eFir.-I Hole: White, Pr.

Instead of having the Sodalists give a short talk at the regular meetings, a member of the faculty was invited each week to address the gathering. At the behest of the Moderator, an intensive drive for new members had been launched at the beginning of the year. Active promoters of this drive were: Charles A. Biuer, Joseph I Tague, I rancis X. Murphy, Nicholas J. Alaimo and Edward P. Lynch, of Freshman; Robert E. Dobson, James P. Fay, Francis X. Brown. Thomas L. Shea, James D. Sullivan and Charles F. Barrett, ol Sophomore. The work of this sodality is similar in nature to that of the Immaculate Conception Sodality. Members disperse Catholic literature, and make voluntary contributions towards the support of both domestic and foreign missions. Catechetical instruction has also occupied the time of the members. As one of the highlights of the year, the Holy Rosary Sodality sponsored a talk which was delivered by the Rev. Daniel A. Lord, S.J., noted author and head of the Sodality movement in America. All classes of the College were invited to attend Father Lord’s lecture. • .,, Handled S;.Szymanski. Callaghan. Alvino. Crean. Hayes St. John Berchmans Sodality Mr. Josi m F. Weber. S.J. John F..

To help realize the purpose of the founder of the St. John Berchmans Sodality, regular meetings are held during the year, at which the Socialists listen to illustrated lectures on correct service and its value, the courtesy of the rubrics and kindred knowledge. The meeting is concluded with a luncheon in the senioi dining hall, a custom which was established four years ago. Credit is due to the Moderator. Mr. Joseph F. Weber, S.J., who so successfully carried out the organization’s extensive program which first received its impetus under the zealous care of Father Anthony L. Ganipp, S.J., and flourished under the guidance of Mr. Daniel E. Power, S.J. Aside from the satisfaction that comes from knowing that they are following the Divine Model of Charity, the members of the sodality feel amply repaid for their efforts when, at the end of the year, they attend the sodality’s annual banquet.

The members visit the poor in their dwellings and apply themselves according to their abilities and the time which they can spare to the elementary and Christian instruction of poor children whether tree or imprisoned. They also visit the sick in nearby hospitals, and distribute magazines and periodicals among the patients. • very important part of the society’s work consists in the instruction of young prisoners at the House ot Refuge on Randall’s Island in their religious duties and in Christian Doctrine. Last Christmas, the society held its annual collection tor the unfortunate of the Bronx districts. The large sum realized was given to different relief organizations. In order to raise additional funds tor charitable purposes, a smoker was partially sponsored by the St. Vincent de Paul Society. The success of the affair has led the members to plan similar ones in the future. Thret Handled EightWiIm h Flynn. Treaty, Pcppard The Harvester Club Rev. Joseph F. Biclan, S.J. Moderator Charles M.

In direct keeping with its object, namely, to further the work of the Catholic Students’ Foreign Mission League according to the general directions of the Diocesan Director of the League and to keep alive, among Fordham students, interest in the American Jesuit Missions in Jamaica and the Philippine Islands—the members of the I larvester Club have applied themselves assiduously to raising funds for the conversion of heathens in distant lands, and in visiting parochial schools to instruct the children concerning the Missions. In addition to the custom of collecting books to be read and studied in far-off mission schools, the Club this year has been engaged in a novel pursuit—that of collecting stamps. This activity promises to become a lucrative source of support for the Missions. Already more than fifty thousand stamps have been sent to Woodstock (College. The Harvester Club may justly be proud of its varied achievements, not the least of which was the realization of a substantial sum of money for the Foreign Missions, in spite of prevalent conditions.

This year, more than any other, ihe society should be proud of its achievements, for the fame of its remarkable success has, for the first time in the history of the organization, extended beyond the American continent—by virtue of a victory over Oxford University of Oxford, England. The debate with the English institution took place on the night of December 8, in Collins Auditorium, Fordham University. Fordham’s representatives, F.dward J. McDonough and Joseph F. Peppard, both of Senior, defended the negative of the proposition, "Resolved, That this House deplores the action of the United States in remaining outside the League of Nations.” The chairman of the debate was the Hon. Joseph V. McKee, ’ll. President of the Board of Aldermen of New York. At the time of this debate, Mr. McKee was the Acting Mayor of New York City. Other important debates engaged in were with representatives from Sr. Francis College, Loyola College, Boston College, University of Pennsylvania, and the University of Tennessee. The St. Francis engagement marked the first time that the Oxford system of debating was publicly employed at Fordham. Intramural debates were held at the weekly meetings of the society. Moreover, through the efforts of Edward |. McDonough a program of fifty lecture debates was completed so that every member of the Council debated, at oik time or another, before some church or social organization.

Ward, S.J., the Freshmen and Sophomores who make up the membership of the Hughes Debating Society' have enjoyed an especially interesting year of debating, both in the confines of the debate chambers and abroad in the field of intercollegiate contests. At the beginning of the school year, the excellent calibre of the newly arrived Freshman orators was especially evident; the men of the Class of ’36 have consistently demonstrated their worth as truly representative Fordham debaters in every contest of oratory and rhetoric in which they have participated. Intramural contests have been hard fought and extremely interesting. The fact that the Society' this year has had the largest enrollment of its entire career is testimony of the quality of the debates and discussions held during its meetings. As in former years, members of the Society engaged in verbal combat the Freshmen and Sophomore teams of other colleges and universities throughout the East. Contests were held with such institutions as Manhattan, Georgetown and Boston College. The Freshmen traveled to Boston for their annual trip, while the Sophomores journeyed to Georgetown. The propositions for discussion centered about various topics of national and international import. Thue Handled ElevenThe Mimes and Mummers Mr. J. Berchmans Morris, S.J. Ri v. James A.

Kiordan, ’34 ) Moderator Dr a wahe Director Assistant Director President Vice-President Secretary Board of Directors THL Mimes .ind Mummers is lordham’s great Dramatic Society, with an uninterrupted history dating from 1871. The following resume of the society’s activities during the past scholastic year was written with the full realization that to criticize from the professional standpoint would be sheer folly. Yet, it cannot be denied that I ordham's undergraduate playwrights and thespians arc adequately equipped, both with technical skill and interpretative talent, to take their places in the professional sphere of theatrics. The first major event on the Mimes and Mummers’ calendar was the presentation of the annual varsity show. The play selected was the rollicking comedy of manners, 'The Rivals,” by Richard Brinsley Sheridan, played on the nights of December 15 and 16. It is a noteworthy fact that the principal roles were enacted by underclassmen, fames W. Fogarty, ’3 5, in the part of the word-mixing Mrs. Malaprop, and Robert Mel. Cox, ’34, as the peppery Sir Anthony Absolute, both wrote their names in gold in the Fordham book of dramatics. This does not mean, however, that the Senior Class did not acquit itself creditably in the varsity production. William A. Coleman, in the female character of Lucy, was very effective, and displayed a great amount of dramatic ability. It was "Bill” Coleman who performed so admirably in the varsity show of 1951, Shakespeare’s "Twelfth Night,” in which he essayed the part of the clown. Mr. Gerard A. Murphy, S.J., reviewing the play Thin Hundred TtcelreScene From 'The Rivals" in a special article for The Ram, said: "'Teste is a harder clown to hit ofl than a casual reading of the lines would betray. Yet William Coleman played the pare to good advantage . . . and carried us back to the bizarre fooling of the Middle Ages for a few hours, and did it in the manner of one who was ‘come by his wits.’ ” Thomas M. Brosnan, who is not a stranger to Fordham dramatic enthusiasts, portrayed the part of Faulkland. "This humorous character.” wrote a critic, "symbolic of the poetic lover, who is too suspicious of his mate—who would have Julia Melville think of him alone, was faithfully handled by the actor. He had the necessary softness of voice, starry gaze, and ruffled concern to round out the part and make it real.” The Seniors, furthermore, were more than amply represented in the twelfth annual varsity One-Act-Play Contest, held in Collins Auditorium on Friday evening, February 24. Two of the six plays produced were the work of Seniors. "Death Ends the Dream.” which won second prize, was written by John J. Burke, while Vladimir J. Svitak was the author of "Twenty-Five Years After.” In the capacity of student directors, we had Thomas M. Brosnan coaching "Paid in Full,” Vladimir J. Svitak directing his own opus, and John S. Stella supervising "Death Ends the Dream.” Besides sponsoring the varsity production and the two One-Act-Play competitions, the "Mimes” has been extraordinarily active during the past two terms. The Freshman Workshop, under the direction of Father James A. TaafTe, S.J., is a sort of branch of the Mimes and Mummers, in which Freshmen can receive individual attention and help in their dramatic efforts; while the Varsity Playshop, functioning under the moderator-ship of Mr. J. Gerard Crcgan, M.A., LL.B., with a record extending over seventy-three years, is one of Fordham’s greatest organizations. A new feature of the "Mimes” was the presentation of plays at the regular meetings by those not actively engaged in other productions and by Freshmen desiring to be admitted into the organization. During a regular meeting of the last semester, the society produced "The Rising of the Moon,” by Lady Gregory, before a large number of the student body. The occasion was made especially interesting by a reminiscent talk given by Father Robert I. Gannon, S.J., a former Moderator of the Mimes and Mummers, and the author of "The Technique of the One-Act-Play,” which is used as a text-book in the Freshman classes.

This year, especially, with two radio broadcasts to its credit, the society can look back with an approving glance and rest satisfied that its work was well done. The first appearance of the Glee Club occurred in the Fordham University Church at the Solemn High Mass of the Holy Ghost which marked the formal opening of the ( ollege. About a month later, the Club initiated its 1952-5 5 concert season with an appearance before the Young Women’s Catholic Club of New York City. This concert was sung in the auditorium of Cathedral High School. Tbice Handled FourteenThe Board Directors Subsequent appearances were made at the College of St. Elizabeth, Mount St. Vincent, Georgian Court College. Good Counsel College, College of New Rochelle, and the Carroll Club of New York. The Club was accompanied on its concert tours by Mr. John E. Kelly, ’31, tenor soloist. The climax of the season was the annual concert given at Town Hall, Wednesday, April 5th. A piano novelty was offered at this concert, four members of the Glee Club simultaneously rendering a selection on two pianos. As in former years, an appreciative audience crowded the hall and clamored for encores. On Sunday, February 12th, the Glee Club broadcast a group of selections over a nation-wide hookup of the Columbia Broadcasting System and was heard locally through Station WABC. The feature of the program, which is known as the "Church of the Air,” was a sermon by Father John S. Middleton, ex 20, Ph.D., ’27 of St. Joseph’s Seminary, Dunwoodic, N. Y. The selections which were offered by the Glee Club included the sacred ballads "Adoramus Te.” "It is the Lord’s Own Day,” "Con-cordi Laetitia,” "Vcni Creator,” and "Ave Maris Stella.” The broadcast of February 12th was so successful that the Club was invited to sing over the radio once more, but this time over the N. B. C. network. The Glee Club’s second radio appearance of the year took place on March 25th. It is with a feeling of pride that we close this brief chronicle of the activities of the Glee Club. This organization, giving its members an opportunity for association with good music, and Fordham her rightful place in a sphere which enjoys the attention and appreciation of cultured men the world over, has rendered our Alma Mater a true service.

Sheehan, '33 Vice-President James D. Alberse, ’34 Secretary Robert C. Faber, ’34 Censor THE Quill Club, when first organized in 1925, was restricted to the Freshman Class. Later, with the founding of the Short Story Guild for Freshmen, it mustered its members from the three upper classes. Since last year, however, the club has amended its Constitution so as to admit members of all the college classes—an action found necessary after the disbanding of the Short Story Guild. Owing to the efforts of the Moderator and the President, great interest in the activities of the Quill Club has been evinced especially by the underclassmen. The bi-weekly meetings of the society have been enlivened by heated discussions on the principles and technique of the short story and good-natured criticism of the original compositions read before the Club by its members. Father Taaffe, S.J.. who has acted as Moderator of the Club since its beginning, contributed to the general interest ol the meetings by his valuable suggestions. A friendly get-together in some conveniently situated banquet hall rounds up the Quill Club’s annual program. The election of officers for the following year— as well as the holding of a mock ''spiritualistic seance’’—bids fair to become a permanent feature of these final banquets.

Albert, ’35 'I'inee I tnnd ed EighteenEXCEPT for the three hectic years following the World War. Tin Ram, a cross-section ot Fordham iife, and probably the second most important extra-curricular activity at Fordham, has regularly presented to the student-body news of campus activities since 1917. Nothing short of an international conflict could force this publication to stop functioning—a thing that happened only because a majority of the staff members had joined the Student Army Training Corps, at the time when America decided to make the world safe for democracy. Tin Ram chronicles and preserves the interesting events that occur on Old Rose Mill, and furnishes an account of the doings of Fordham’s prominent sons, both those in the ranks of the undergraduates anil those in the great body of its alumni. As might be expected, the success of the tremendous work associated with running this newspaper, is in no small amount due to the Class of 1933. Michael J. Sheehan, who reported sports events during his first three years in college, was, in his Senior year, chosen Editor-in-Chicf. 11 is efficient work has aided greatly in carrying Tiie Ram safely over the rocks of financial difficulties that threatened the paper during the last year of the depression. The editorials written by him have widely been commented upon, and have even been reprinted in other college weeklies. Clemens G. Arlinghaus deserves credit for handling the organization’s finances with ability and shrewdness. In his capacity of Business Manager, he has maintained Tin Ram on a sound basis and has skillfully disposed of the wants of the paper’s advertising clientele. Vladimir J. Svitak, associated with the staff since his Freshman year, has, after serving a year’s apprenticeship on the News Board, been appointed News Editor. He has given unstintingly of his labor, and has filled his post on The Rani with excellent good judgment. The column known as "Fordham Traditions” has also been in his capable hands. This column served as a means of providing the student body with knowledge about Fordham dating as far back as the Civil War. James E. Clark. Jr., Art Editor, has contributed his valuable services for the past four years. The cartoons and sketches that appeared regularlv in The Ram have been the work of his skillful hand. Without a doubt, they have enhanced the value of the paper considerably. Another interesting feature of The Ram, the humorous column known as "Ramblings.” has proceeded from the pen of this gifted artist. The important work of circulating The Ram was executed by John E. Arens, and his indefatigable assistants. Each week "Jack” supervised the sending of almost three thousand copies of The Ram to the various classes and through the mails. This brief recognition of his labor is small recompense indeed. Finally, two Seniors have rendered invaluable benefit upon the paper by their weekly reports of campus activities in the columns of The Ram. They are John J. Calarco and William J. Cleary, both of whom have served faithfully. Several underclassmen have likewise helped in making the pages of The Ram more interesting. John J. Smith, ’34, Sports Editor, has contributed the column, "Looking Them Over.” Robert G. Whalen, ’34, was the author of "The Interview,” while John J. Donovan, Jr., ’3 5, the Exchange Editor, wrote the column titled "It’s Possible.” Three Handled Nine teenThe Monthly Staff The Fordham Monthly Mr. Joseph B.

Conway, ’33 TI IE Fordham Monthly, which represents the highest literary achievements of Fordham undergraduates, is one of Fordham’s proudest boasts. We need not search very far lor the reason, ii we consider that November ol the current school year marked for the Monthly its Golden Jubilee. Accordingly, the first issue of the year, distinctive in appearance and set-up, and clothed in an extraordinary maroon-colored cover, was dedicated to the University, the Faculty, the students and the members of former Monthly Staffs. The editors of the magazine departed from precedent insofar as they did not feature articles written by distinguished alumni, as has been the custom on similar occasions in the past. The Golden Jubilee issue contained, among other notable articles. Three Hundred Twentya sonnet in praise of past writers and an appropriate editorial and was prefaced by a laudatory message from the President of Fordham University, the Rev. Aloysius J. Hogan, S.J. Father Hogan said in part: "For fifty years the Fordham Monthly has served as a real link between the College and Fordham’s numerous Alumni and friends. The pages of the Monthly bear eloquent testimony to the unfailing standards of literary effort with which its primal purpose has been and still is being accomplished. In this Jubilee Year. I voice my heartiest congratulations to all those Faculty Moderators, Editors, Contributors and Managers, who. for fifty years, have been gathering the gold for this Golden Jubilee. May the Fordham Monthly continue to inspire and to interest all true friends of Fordham.” I or the past year the Monthly has been under the guidance of Mr. Joseph B. Monaghan, S.J., who succeeded Mr. Gerard A. Murphy, S.J., as moderator. Mr. Monaghan has introduced many new ideas, which have been the cause of making the Monthly even more popular than before. Particularly, he has encouraged new writers, several of whom are now members of the staff. John J. Burke, ’53, is Editor-in-Chief of the Monthly. During the past year Mr. Burke has proved himself very versatile, for he has written essays, stories and poems with equal facility. Frank J. Crane and Henry J. Bender, both of Senior, are prominent writers on the staff. Frank Crane’s humorous narratives have earned for him the title of best short story writer for the Monthly, while Henry Bender’s stories and interpretative essays are both pleasing and instructive. "Conquering Meister-singer,” an essay on Wagner, is a fine example of his work. Edward H. Koch, '3 5, again was Art Editor and it is to him that the Monthly is chiefly indebted for its artistic appearance. For four years he has been drawing frontispieces for the magazine, most of them sketches of Campus scenes. This year, however. Mr. Koch has not confined himself to the campus. His sketch of the Bell Tower of Magdalene College, Oxford, which appeared in the February issue, drew high praise from all critics. The Junior class numbers many seasoned writers. Robert C. Faber and Edmund V. O’Sullivan have been writing since Freshman, while James D. Albersc started writing when a Sophomore. Mr. Faber, while primarily a poet, has contributed many short stories of exceptional merit. His long narrative poems, particularly "The Diver,” have occasioned extensive comment. Mr. O’Sullivan is noted for his thought-provoking essays on various literary and political topics. "Being International Minded,” a stimulating analysis of Babbitry in politics, is a fine specimen. Mr. Albersc provides the unique phenomenon of a business manager who is also a contributing editor. During the past year, not only has his light verse appeared with great frequency, augmented by short stories in similar vein, but "Golden Chain,” a comprehensive history of the Monthly has proved him capable of success in a broader undertaking. A new and brilliant addition to the Monthly staff is William F. Michelfelder of Junior whose trenchant free verse and provocative psychological stories augur well for the future of the publication. William F. Cahalan, ’3 5, who joined the staff in his first year, has contributed verse during Sophomore with increasing regularity, lbs technique is remarkable for unrestrained vigor of phrase. One Freshman was admitted to the editorial staff in 1932-3 3. He was Thomas F. Ficz morris. a young man of unusual promise, who has contributed some noteworthy short stories and poetry as well as several numbers of the Antidote, the humorous section of the magazine. The Monthly has ever gone forward with its task of moulding Catholic writing with a true Catholic attitude toward life. Ir has always provided a haven for those who yearn to give expression to worthwhile thought. May the Fordham Monthly-serve Fordham in the next fifty years as it has done during the last half century.

This, the twelfth year ot its existence, was one replete with accomplishments. A distinct innovation in the annals of Fordham was instituted by the Mendel Club. Early in the year, the Club acted as host to the Senior class and staged a demon stration lecture of mitosis, fertilization, and allied phenomena, in connection with the Senior psychology course. Again the "Cabmuth” was acclaimed on all sides. Tins biological paper, the organ of the lub, is nationwide in its scope- and presents the latest news in the scientific world. The regular weekly meetings of the Club arc devoted to the discussion of biological subjects which are not encountered in the curriculum. Many times during the year, the meetings arc featured by lectures delivered by prominent guest speakers. Moving pictures are often shown illustrating the talks. A priceless aid in the preparation of the papers presented by the members at the meetings is the modern library of the biology department. This ever-growing adjunct of the Club is a veritable storehouse of knowledge, containing a large number of volumes on every phase of biology. I'hi a Hundred Tu enty-ttcoPicket. Broad.

The Chemists’ Club has. indeed, managed to keep up with the pace-setters, and has become one of the most active societies on the campus. The purpose of the Club is chiefly to stimulate in its members an interest for research work and to give them opportunities tor imparting information of a chemical nature to others. This general object is achieved when the members read scientific papers and perform experiments at the bi-weekly meetings of the Club or before other similar scientific bodies. The great work of the Chemists’ Club has been the publication of a monthly magazine, called “The Retort,” containing items of chemical interest, and edited by the following students: Edward J. Flanagan, ’33, Iiditor; John J. Calarco, ’33, Associate Editor; Edward A. Broad. ’34, Business Manager; Owen J. Chccvcrs, ‘33, Jacob L. Keller, ’3 3, Frank D. Pickel, ’33. Roy A.

In this, the fifth year of its existence, many distinguished speakers have addressed the club on topics pertaining to Spain and Hispanic culture, in accordance with the purpose of the organization, viz., to familiarize the members with the numerous Spanish authors and their culture, to foster in them a genuine interest in Spanish culture and to help them attain fluency in the conversational use of the language. Among the noted speakers during the year 1932-33 were: Senor Lopez Yidela, of the Bolivian Consulate, who spoke on the Gran Chaco dispute; the Rev. Lawrence K. Patterson, S.J., well-known historian, who gave a learned talk on the Spanish Republic; and Mr. John M. Vick, of the Spanish Department of Fordham College, who lectured on Spanish music. One of the major activities of the club was the publication of the annual, "Fratcr-nidad Hispana,” which featured as its theme the past and present influence of Spain upon America, and covered a great variety of topics, ranging from a survey of the life of Father Eusebio Kino, S.J., to a comprehensive delineation of the Spanish missions in California. 77 ivi Hundred Tuen )-fomEhrhardt.

In spite of its youth, however, the German Club can proudly point to two years of outstanding achievement. This year, because of conflicting class schedules, it had been found neccssan to divide the club into two sections, each convening on different days. The activities of the "Kulturverein” have been arranged in accordance with the purpose of the society. Educational discourses, bearing on German language and culture, are regularly delivered by members, as well as by guest speakers. The German Club has often been entertained by the lectures and song recitals of Fr. Augustus M. Fremgen, S. J. As a token of appreciation of his deep interest in the society, the club has made Father Fremgen an honorary moderator. A "kaffee klatsch” has been something of a novelty and was thoroughly enjoyed by the members. Hut the height of the social program was the annual banquet, held at a prominent mid-town 'Speisehaus.” The affair was marked by a true spirit of Bavarian conviviality and was a fitting close to a year of endeavor and accomplishment.

It presents an anomaly in the fact that it is the only one of the modern language clubs at Eordham whose language is not taught at the College. The first half of the school year, under the presidency of Anthony J. Giordano, '34. was devoted largely to a membership drive, necessitated by the gaps left in the ranks of the club by last year’s graduating members. In January, 1 933, Mr. Giordano resigned his office, and the presidency was taken over by Edward A. Ricciuti, ’33. Literary pursuits, such as composing plays, and essays in Italian, marked the activities of the society during the latter part of the scholastic year. The club has a library, started in 1931. which members find useful and interesting. The literary compositions and speeches composed by the members are catalogued in this miniature library of the club. The climax of the Italian Club's program is the annual banquet held in an exclusive Italian restaurant in the Bronx.

Since then it has grown both in membership and achievement, until today it occupies an enviable campus position. The weekly meetings are conducted in French as far as possible. On several occasions throughout the year the club has been favored by the presence of prominent French-speaking guests. Joint meetings have also been held with college scientific groups. The great work and pride of the club is ' l.c Rayon du Cercle Francais” popularly known as the French Annual. It discusses in a literary manner some topic of interest to the student body. The present and fourth edition took as its theme "Catholic Action” with special emphasis on Social Justice. "Lc Rayon” was edited under the very capable direction of Patrick F. Casev, ’33. In order to accomplish the purpose of familiarizing its members with the French language and culture, the club very often attends ”cn corps” French theatrical and cinematic productions. Moreover frequent "petits dejeuners” are held at near by restaurants during the scholastic term, and it is customary to hold, in place of the final meeting, a very elaborate banquet aboard one of the large French liners which may happen to be in the harbor.

Since its foundation, the "B.-L.I.” has become the largest social club on the campus, numbering over one hundred active members. The annual Winter dance ol the Brooklyn-Long Island Club is very popular not only with the "initiated” but also with the entire student body, as evidenced by the large crowd that always shows up lor the occasion. This year, as in former years, the colorful affair was held on the last Friday of January in the grand ballroom of the Hotel St. George, Brooklyn, N. Y.; the dancers tripping the light fantastic to the lilting strains of the music supplied by Harold Stern and his Hotel St. Moritz Orchestra. As an added attraction. Bill Smith, a popular radio tenor, rendered several vocal selections. The chairman of the Dance Committee was Francis J.

Merely to say that this purpose was actualized since the founding of the club in 1928, would not be doing full justice to the many accomplishments of this organization. Growing in size and in activity, year after year, the club has been an effective medium for promoting a closer bond of fellowship among the undergraduates from New York’s sister State, and for renewing among the graduates friendships and associations that have been formed during student days at Fordham. The most important item on the social program of the New Jersey Club was the annual autumn dance which was held on December 2nd at the Robert Treat Hotel in Ncw'ark, N. J. In accordance with the traditional policy of the club the event was tendered in honor of the varsity football team. It was unanimously pronounced the most successful and enjoyable of all the New Jersey ( lub dances to date. A circumstance which helped to give the affair a true Fordham atmosphere was the fact that the music for the occasion was rendered by an orchestra under the baron of a Fordham alumnus, Frank Galassi of the class of ’29. The dance was under the management of Joseph Conway and Bernard McCrecsh, both of Senior, who acted as co-chairmen. Three Hundred Tu-enrx-nnieMcDermott. Zapustas.

A long list of Fordham alumni from the Bay State could be compiled in testimony of the fact that Fordham has benefited by the "invasion” of the Massachusetts boys into the Bronx. This year the club has been unusually fortunate in having at its helm a man who has played no small part in making the name of Fordham better known, not only in his own state of Massachusetts, but throughout the country—a man who needs no introduction to Fordham undergraduates; Joe” Zapustas, famous football and baseball star. In the middle of April, the Massachusetts Club held a dinner dance in the vicinity of Boston. The affair was well attended with representatives from all corners of the Bay State. The club takes this opportunity to thank the Reverend Moderator for the continued interest which he has shown in all its activities. Three Hundred ThirtyRe ine. Furey. Boyle.

To quote from an older "Maroon”: "In 1926 it was thought advisable, on account of the large number of Pennsylvanians who had come to Fordham's 'Hall of Learning’ to form some society which would serve to enable the members to become better acquainted with each other during the school years and afford a foundation for enduring friendship after graduation. With this end in view, the 'Keystoners’ of the class ol ’29 drew up a constitution for the Pennsylvania Club.” Although its undergraduate enrollment cannot compare with that of some of the other State clubs, nevertheless, the members of the organization banded together and tendered a dance during the Christmas season, which might serve as a model of zeal and co-operation to clubs boasting a far more formidable membership. The affair,—a highly pleasurable social triumph—was held in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Tlnee Hundred T'bitty-oneMcCarthy, Lenkowski, Hubbell, Ricciuti, Smith The Connecticut Club Rhv. Chari.i s J.

Functioning with a purpose similar to that of the other State Clubs, this organization has made considerable progress especially in the social held, as evidenced by the overwhelming success of ns Christmas and Easter dances. The former took place on December 28, 1932, in the Stratficld Flotel located in Bridgeport. Michael C. Hayes, ’33, was appointed chairman of the dance committee. The Eastci dance was held in New Haven with Edward Coady 34 as chairman. Both of these functions were ample proof that the club is fulfilling the end for which it was established. An advancement over other years was the formation of the Committee of Public Relations whose task it was to enhance the mutual interests of Connecticut and Fordham. In conclusion, the Connecticut Club has safely weathered the prevalent economic crisis and, true to precedent, it has maintained its stability and assured its success for succeeding years.

The result of their endeavors was the Up-State Club. Notwithstanding the limitation of membership and the wide separation of "hometowns,” the men from up state manifested great ardor in overcoming these handicaps to meet in both the Yuletide and the Easter seasons for an evening of gaiety and enjoyment. During the past scholastic year, under the conservative guidance of Fr. Deane, S.J.. the club has held several social functions all of which proved to be immense successes as well as splendid media for bearing the name of Fordham into the far districts of the state, particularly in the vicinity of the Capitol. The Christmas dance took place on December 28, at the Do Witt Clinton Hotel, Albany, with J. Edward Hurley, ’33 acting as chairman. The enchanting environment of the De Witt Clinton is fast becoming a tradition to the members of this state organization. Three Hundred Thirty-threeStaff Officers R. O. T. C. Ayf ILITARA TRAINING is not new at Fordham though the present military organization dates back only to 1926. As early as 1882 attempts were made to form a cadet corps here. It was not until '8 5 that success in this plan was assured by Father Dealy, who turned to the U. S. Army to establish a detail of cadets. This was done under authority given by an act of Congress. The total enlistment at the end of the first year was about fifty students. During the first ten years of its existence the corps increased greatly in numbers. It developed into a truly military unit having guard duty on the grounds, skirmish drills and scouting exercises in Bronx Park. The cadets participated in many important events, among them being the laying of the cornerstone at Dunwoodie Seminary and the Silver Anniversary of the founding of the College. In the next decade the unit continued to grow both in size and efficiency. A battalion was formed with a cadet-major in command. A system of discipline like unto that of West Point was established. This strict training plus the zeal the cadets had for their work enabled them to win second place in the National Guard Exhibition drills. The next year the College became a University and this training was abolished. When the war clouds were spread over the fields of Europe an Ambulance Corps was established at Fordham. Upon the declaration of war a unit of one hundred and twenty-seven was sent to Allentown, Pa. In August these troops embarked for France where they distinguished themselves and brought glory and honor to themselves, their country, and to their Alma Mater, Fordham. In September, 1918, the Students’ Army Training Corps, the first of its kind in the United States, was instituted at the University. This was authorized by an act of Congress. In addition to this a Naval Unit was also established. The students had regular army discipline, drills, class work in both tactics and educational courses, guard duty, and in general, led a life similar to that of a West Pointer. The degree of efficiency attained by these cadets was such that Rear Admiral Ross, U.S.N., was prompted to remark that Fordham’s course of instruction in naval matters was second T hue Hundt-.it Thirty-fontRifle Team only to that of Annapolis. The Naval Cadets resigned at the close of the war. The Army corps was completely abolished in 1919. The present R. O. T. C. unit was organized in September, 1926, under the provisions of the National Defense Act. About one hundred students enrolled in the course directed by Colonel Ross, who was assisted bv Captain Boudreau and StafT-Sergeant Berger. The Government Club of New York presented the Corps with the colors of the nation and of the university which are still the most cherished possession of the unit. From this small beginning the unit, tilled with a real spirit of camaraderie, has tripled itself in numbers. It has also increased in proficiency, for, inspired by the able leadership of its commanders, it has attained perfection on the drill field as evidenced by the fact that the War Department has for the past three years awarded it the rating of "Excellent.” The members of the present group are striving under the directorship of Major Edward L. Kelly, C. A. C., U. S. A., and l ieutenant Ernest Merklc, C. A. C., U. S. A., under whose guidance they have won this high honor, to retain it. Last summer Fordham was well represented at the Coast Artillery training camp of historic Fort Monroe. We were not alone. Massachusetts Tech, the University of Pittsburgh, Delaware, Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and New I lampshire had also sent some of their sons to engage in six weeks of training. During this period we were friendly enemies. We wanted to show them what Fordham could do, and they had the same desire. We did our best to reflect nothing but honor on Fordham’s name. On the rifle range, and the parade grounds, on the big guns and behind the three inch anti-aircraft guns, we maintained the Fordham spirit . . . we did the job, and did it well. We all received something during our stay. Some returned to the metropolis with new names, each being given for a reason, if it can be called that. Dave Connors soon answered to the term "At trail.” "At trail” represented us in the capacity of Captain of Battery "A.” He did well and was rewarded by being reappointed to the same command. Then there was the "Whispering Lieutenant," better known on the campus as Bill Francke. I le won this title by popular vote after rocking the foundations of the fort with his thunderous "Forward March.” But Bill had a car at the Post, so we had to take it easy on the jibing if we were to count on transportation to Phoebus, Buckroc Beach or Newport News. However, abstention from dubbing this title was Three Hundred Tbi !y-fit eOfficers' Club Officials: Connors, Genovese, Fran eke not always an assurance of a ride. Why? For the reason that Lieutenant "Kcep-’cm-awake-all-night” Genovese was co-owner of said Dodge, four-in-line. If this car was not in the "pound,” it had a flat. If it did not have a flat, it was out of gas. If everything was in proper condition, we could not use it anyway we had search- light drill! We were fortunate in having our own Major Kelly and Lieutenant Merkle with us. The Major was in charge of infantry drill. I le showed the boys from the Back Bay State, and smokeless Pittsburgh how he does it in the Bronx. And ot all the officers in charge of us lie was the most respected. We were proud to say that he was "Our Major.” Lieutenant Merkle could tell you much about our unsteady eye and wavering hand, for many a time he accompanied us down to a pistol target at which ten government bullet heads were fired, but not a one had pierced. But then he would smile a bit on finding that the target on the left or right had twenty holes in it. It was just a case of shooting at the wrong target. Speaking of shooting, we must not forget the Rifle learn, which, under the expert tutelage of its coach. Sergeant Joseph H. Smith, D. E. M. I.., has brought its 1932-3 3 season to a successful conclusion. The Ram Nimrods have raised their yearly average well over the five hundred mark in winning seven of its thirteen shoulder to shoulder matches, fourteen of its twenty-three correspondence matches and carrying our the old Fordham tradition by defeating X. V. U. Captain Malaspina began the season by leading the team in four successive matches, but upon the compilation of the season's scoring record the high honors went to Santoro with Kouba and Malaspina close behind. In addition to these men four others will be awarded the Minor I'. They are: Joseph Daly, William Lambert, Stephen Randolph and Maurice Cox, Manager. The prospects lor next season are exceptionally bright as none of these veterans will be lost ansi Sergeant Smith is looking forward to some promising material among the Freshmen. Another unit of activity in the R. (). T. C. is the Officers’ Club. Us membership is limited to the students of the advanced course. The purpose of the organization is to affiliate the student officers with the commissioned officers who have graduated from Fordham and who are considered active members.

For where the spirit of pure sportsmanship and of courage calls to each man of Ford bam, his strong hand is ever stretching through the mist, grasping ours and leading with the quiet grip of bodily perfection and with the more gentle, yet inestimably firmer guidance of a clean, brotherly heart and character. In such manner is the living, breathing spirit of a comrade present among us, far more vibrant than any dim memory or time-moulded custom could ever be. True to the undying song of the Maroon, he answered that last shrill whistle to go down into the darkness, not for one game, but for all that every sport hopes to achieve. For, though that contest was lost, a far greater game was won in the shadowy, dying light. And so, in all simplicity, we call to the change- less champion in our midst, "Brother, look to us that remain.”vrfqiuM srnfroO ’{ r iiUMN, - ■ MRD tom i oA'm i« j«ows wo z 3 3lHv"X Vvtu z oA yioAVu to'4. .uo V V.iyi b «w v smun o Ymt $ Vitvbuu to z }tw o A V mw £uot i ii ,mtwVVto;l o muu Awo o iMwo '}.

Cavanaugh, the Iron Major f Foidham: coach, fighter, builder of men. a real member of the old school whose great football teams of 1929- 30 '31 brought Fordham to the top of the world. Three H ntelred FoitydreVARSITY FOOTBALL Ford ham 68 Baltimore 0 A STURDY unit of football men fresh from the greensward of Baltimore was given the honor of smashing the bottle of good fortune across a new I ordham team as this last of great Cavanaugh elevens rushed down the gridiron to football success. Early in September these green, inexperienced lads, representing the iron ore from the mines of the Sophomore and Junior classes, passed through the roaring furnace of Cavanaugh’s mind, through the mold represented by Ins hands and out upon a Pordham Field to be tempered and made fine under the cool draughts of experience. Baltimore University supplied the first test. Outweighed and outplayed, they fell before an attack and defense which brought tears of joy to the eyes of the reminiscent, wreathed in smiles the faces of the new, and prompted surgings of titled dreams and hopes among the young. Two teams of almost equal strength were placed upon the field that day; one representing tremendous drive and power and experience, in which the wily McDermott. the crushing Danowski and Piawlock, and the weaving tactics of Cowhig showed to great advantage on the offense. Defensively. Del Isola’s fine work at center was almost equaled bv the startling line play of the husky Sophomores. Wolfcndale. Waldron and Fenton. These young stars will radiate on many’ a cool autumn afternoon whether the fortunes of Pordham be high or low. Steadying these younger men and offering at the same time an example of superb and finished line play was the roil of U davinis at tackle, the versatile and brilliant Zapustas at one end and the impregnable barrier that Bonitski has always presented. Many deeds will go unhonored and unsung among the great acts of the above mentioned stalwarts on that afternoon. Skili they had in abundance, enthusiasm flooded their souls, their greatness stood in the hands of fate, and the queer pranks of fate wc shall uni old in succeeding chapters. Tbtee HundttJTaking H uhull oie the hurdled Ford ham 30 Bucknell 0 THE Bison Herd of Bucknell was let loose to roam about the plains of Coogan’s Bluff on this Satur day early in October. Bucknell was a powerful force, undefeated in two years ol competition and practically the same unit which had butted the ram into the only defeat of the season only one year before. Confident of victory against an untried eleven, the I lerd stayed long enough to sink into inglorious defeat and to place into the hands of a jubilant team the Olympic palm of triumph and greatness. The two unit plan of attack and defense, based on contrasting methods of attack, sheer power on the one hand, speed and elusiveness on the other, and apparently capable of producing equal results, was the most interesting note in the afternoon’s play. Great defense teams have been more or less of an accepted fact in Fordham football, and both elevens used today displayed fundamental principles of defense which are ingrained in these players by a master coach. Bucknell using a modified double wing, which style of play requires delay in handling the ball behind the line as it slipped to backs reversing and double reversing, was repeatedly broken up in its incentive stage, due simply to the tremendous drive of the Fordham line. It was a rare event and must have filled Bucknell with considerable pride to see, occasionally, a back reach the scrimmage line. This terrific charging was carried out by every linesman throughout the game, and it should not occasion any surprise to note that twice Brennan and McArdle swept aside their opponents to block punts by Reznichck and then recover the ball for safeties. When great deeds are done, the actions of many individuals will stand out and this point is true of the play of such men as Del Isola, Danowski, McDermott, Harlow, Pavlicovic, Boyle, Piawlock and Cowhig. For a few years the All-American work of Siano set a precedent and a goal for future men to aim at. but we arc certain that we are doing full justice to Siano in saving that he was scarcely the equal and certainly not the peer of Del Isola. I ow, vicious, head-on tackling that strips the hall carrier nor only of gain but of zeal and enthusiam make up the character of his play. And many a Bucknell back shook from his head to his toes when Johnny’s mighty shoulders struck him amidships. We shall leave for others in the future years to eulogize the cockv, spectacular runs and tactics of Freddy "The Great” Harlow. He shall never know the silence of the crowds; it shall either be the applause that lifts the roof or the sibilant chorus of disapproval.

Ford ham 5 2 Lebanon Valley 0 OUT of the depths of Pennsylvania rose a light, fast eleven from Lebanon Valley to fight it out with the Ram in the Polo Grounds. Like the cherub-faced choir boy with a white collar and a flowing white tie who warily invades the district of the gang who are wont to strip the policemen of their chibs and revolvers, rhe squad from Pennsylvania must have lined up against the Ram with a great lump in their throats. It was not long after the kick-off when the men of Fordham pushed their way down the field bv means of those short, choppy, bone-crushing blows that rob the defender of physical strength and steal away his morale. With the goal ten yards away. Lebanon Valley, filled with that frenzy of fight arising out of a sense of hopelessness, as of a flyweight against a heavyweight, resisted and repelled the fierce thrusts of the Maroon. They gave their all in that brave stand and not once thereafter had they the strength to strike a blow for their cause. They were experimented upon, played with and toyed with, in a football manner. It ceased to be a question of winning, but of winning by how much! The two-team stvle of attack was employed for the third time with the fine points of the opposite styles coming into plainer view as the sand paper of repeated drills smooths away the rough spots. Interference was formed properly, the guards were swinging out with more speed and finesse, the ball-toter was no longer impeded by his o n interferers, men were cut down more cleanly and the vardage gained was lengthened, from rhe former three yards to five or more. The defense was up to par though the customary intensity of drive was not on display inasmuch as ir was nor needed in the face of such a weak foe. The tremendous leg drive of Danowski stood out during the game, striking a rather interesting and humorous note in the attempts to stop him. As he came tearing through a gap in the line, one or two of the lighter Blue players would grab him, check him, and then fall beneath the irresistible power of his charge. This game witnessed the last of the weak opponents on the schedule. Henceforth, it will be a series of titanic struggles in which victory will be ours only for the price of splendid play—play characterized by zeal, enthu-Alvino siasm, and fight. Three Hundred Potty-eightFordham 13 Michigan State 19 MICHIGAN SI All- bore our ill every particular that most dreaded phenomenon of the Western prairies—a prairie fire. They swept upon a Fordham team with characteristic rapidity and de- structiveness. First it was Monnett, then F.liowit and then McNutt, sprinting, whirling, twisting phantoms and demons, meeting the sledge hammer effects of the Cavanaugh system with the thrilling lightning thrusts represented by the flash and the speed of the expert swordsmen. The Maroon, grown slothful beneath the indulgence of weak foes, was unprepared for a battle requiring speed and alertness. Fordham kicked off and downed McNutt on Michigan State’s 21-yard line. The two teams lined up. First down and ten for Michigan State, Kircher is calling the signals, the linesmen sit back on their haunches in typical Rockne fashion, the backs line up in T formation. Kircher calls the ''Hike,’' they shift to the right. The ends pull out one yard, more signals, the ball is passed, the end crashes the tackle, drives him in, Monnett swings through the hole, weaves into the secondary, one, two. three men hit him and miss. He fades over to the sidelines, evades the last man and outruns the rest to the goal. One play, one touchdown: score, 6—0. Now witness the contrast in type of play used by Fordham in offsetting this disadvantage. Michigan State kicks off to Fordham. First down and ten to go for Fordham. And then the drive, drive, drive begins. Danowski through guard for two, Cowhig through tackle for three. Danowski oft tackle for five and first down. Cowhig on a cross-buck for three. Cowhig again through guard for two. Danowski over guard for three more—and once again Cowhig for two and first down. And so it goes on biting off chunk by chunk, and finally swallowing the whole. Fighting mad, flaming with zeal and de sire, unconquerable, irresistible—this Fordham team finally crashed over for the score and point. 7— Was it to be victory? We felt certain it was. This conviction deepened upon us as two quarters went by with the score unchanging. And then —tragedy. Fortune had gathered up her garment and turned her back on tis and a pass settling into Harlow’s arms was plucked away by Eliowitz and as he flew down the field Victory fled with him. We had lost, but men arc often greatest in defeat. So it was with our team: they went down with flags flying and drums beating.Bart. McDonnell Kelly, B. C.

Fordham 0 Boston College 3 THU football world was prepared to doubt the testimony of the senses as certain sources of knowledge when the first report of the annual B. C. game was bawled out. It was impossible, unbelievable, that a team, on paper, upwards of four touchdowns superior, should lose humiliatingly to an eleven however vastly underrated, still scarcely a top-notcher. Even when surveyed from great distances, the frightful ruin and bitter result appear no clearer. It is a case that requires not a mere observer or recorder but rather a psychoanalyst or magician. Estimate clearly the case—a Fordham team admittedly possessing unsounded depths of speed, material and football ability, fired with the added motive of traditional rivalry, a critical audience, if not a hostile one, a need for recovering a depreciated prestige —a need to draft a sunken spirit—yea, surely many reasons for victory. Yet, that Fordham team was outcharged, outplascd, outrammed. Men who never fumble, fumbled; men who cackle, clearly and viciously, did not tackle at all; blockers did not block, and men who scored touchdowns, did not gain a few yards. Mystery shrouded with the cloak of the invisible, shades of Doyle and Foe, in review; invoked they heed us not. pleaded with, they shrug their shoulders in helplessness. Is the answer Boston College? I lardlv. Michigan State? More likely. Most likelv a loss of confidence and assurance. It is not our purpose to detract or turn from its proper channels the waves of praise and glory that must flow to such men as Kelley, whose perfect kick gave Boston victory—a kick which saw realized a full week of daily practice in drop-kicking, as well as a hunch that his kick would win the game; Chesnulevitch, as good a back as ever spun through a line—or Couhig, captain and great tackle, or Tosi and Killica —or to any member of that splendid B. C. team. We alone arc interested in recounting and recalling a total collapse of a highly formidable team. This defeat found its triumph in the fact that it served as a gadfly, a goad which stung to fighting fury a spiritless squad. i'btee Hundred FiftyEd.

Fordham 14 St. Mary's 0 THERE was a distinct and mournful lull in the pealing and the gambolings of the Bells of St. Mary’s on this afternoon when the broad and sinewy hands of the men of Fordham encircled the bells and dulled their wonted tunes of victory. For two years these themes rang forth as the bells swung between the locked horns of the yoked Ram! I or two years the memory ot the bells and their hateful bars had marred the rammings of the Ram. No longer did the flying hoofs cross the goal and raise the mounting scores. No! Laggard steps, ’ncath heaving and aching bodies, sought the solitary point. Why? The memory of the bells, l aded glories, sunken treasures, buried hopes—and memories of the bells. Whispered sounds at eventide, fretful roarings at dawn’s awakening and still memories of the bells. Ding-dong, ding-dong—Bells of St. Mary’s, songs of victory, hymns of praise, requiem, dirge—above all bells. Echoing and reechoing—unceasing, unending, perhaps—and 1952 more bells, louder bells, greater bells, bells tolling, bells ringing, bells pealing- Polo Grounds, November 5, then bells—mournful, still, dead. Spirited and untamed after galloping unchecked down the wild mesas of the Pacific Coast, '.his corral full of Galloping Gaels turned loose on the grazing grounds of the revengeful Ram, who rose up to thrust the bit of defeat between the teeth of rh s unbridled outfit. Fight, fight was the password breathed into each Fordham man’s ear as he ran from the dressing room. Fight was the order of the day, the sentinel of victory, and no one forgot it. In no other word can this great victory be expressed; in one picture it might be described: a Fordham center firing his teammates while pounding his open hand with the tightly clinched fists of the other. Derails of this game are unnecessary. You will find the whole story carved in the memory of the 70,000 who witnessed the battle, from the moment that Danowski’s broad toe and potent foot lifted the oval, twisting, turning down the field into the waiting arms of Partce. The unique character of this game was riie concentration of everything in one unit that makes great football: skill and determination on the offense that moved slowly and crushinglv like the torch of war, yet given to sudden flights in the nature of a coup d’etat; a defense rock-bounded and steel-girded like Gibraltar, further intensified by the appearance in the sunlight of men who formerly roamed in the shadows: Zapustas, Cowhig. Sarausky and the usually unclaimed line. Then there was Big Ed Danowski and Johnny Del Isola. a fine back and a brilliant center. We will never forget this game when a Fordham team stole a page from Aesop and rode home with victory. Three Httndicd Fifty oneD.wousi: circles our left end against S. Y. U. for fifteen yards. Fordham 7 N. Y. U. 0 ON this festal day the Ram strolled into a languishing field of Violets, paused and gazed loftily and speculatively over a bowed and drowsy field and then set to work. He munched and nibbled a little on the left side disdained the center and ate and feasted largely on the right—then with wanton and destructive mien, he lowered his head and ravaged and laid waste the whole field. Naughty Ram! This, :n brief, is how the story will be written for the Little Boys’ Books of the future, and yet therein is told a complete tale of a football game. The Fordham Ram, suffering a rather expected let-down after a very decisive and glorious victory, and displaying a spirit best expressed by the sentence: "We have met the enemy and they are ours” —looked upon the shy and blushing violets whose roots were none too deeply sunken in fertile victory’s soil, as fine pickings for a vase to be placed at the feet of Dame Fortune. Accordingly he dealt a heavy blow at the side where the coy Vavra modestly stood, but alas! this Violet moved not, but shook the Ram from the tip of his whiskers to the tiniest and utmost hair on his tiil. The Ram thereupon gathered his cloak of dignity about him somewhat chastened by this reception, sought not the center ___ _ where a rather unknown Violet stood blushing with downcast eves and betook himself to the right side upon which to linger and gloat while glutting his thirst for revenge. Alas, sad disappointment. What was the Ram to do? 1 le hunted up Sarauskv, Zapustas, Danowski, Del Isola, Cowhig, Nitka. Uzdavinis and a few more. The problem of getting out of the field by going through it was a serious one and the Ram knew it. He thought desperately. But the humble, downcast, bowed heads of the iolet solved it for him. He would go over their heads, since they cared not to look up. Thereupon, in magnificently short order, he paraded down the field, and walked off with victory when Danowski passed to Sarauskv for the touchdown. The Maroon had won a great ball game for the Iron Major, and the SO,000 fans who jammed the house that Ruth built to sec this battle of the giants. Frank McDermott Tone Hundred Fifty-twoRemember the day you mam to the Polo Ground, .md saie the Ram battle the Beam in the mud. Fordham 8 Oregon State 6 npHr universal homage and respect usually paid to Pacific Coast teams cannot be engendered in a Fordham unit by any means. For the second time of the season a powerful team from the West (.oast was commissioned to box and crate the Ram and ship him to the Coast where a great price would be paid for him dead or alive, skinned or whole, particularly by a little school among the hills of the Moraga Valley. And for the second time the hunted put the hunter in his own trap and with proper tags and titles shipped him home to plot, plan and devise more successful methods. I he husky Beavers of Oregon swam into the Polo Grounds under ideal conditions for beavers. A heavy rain made everything else heavy—heavy mud, heavy uniforms, heavy ball and very heavy opponents. From the opening kick-off it was evident to all—particularly to Fordham men—that the beavers had decided that the best place to build their nests was under the goal post of the Ram. Accordingly, one little fellow named Ward, who was as busy as two beavers in the early part of the game, dashed hither and yon gathering all the materials in the form of yardage for a very splendid nest. His industry was rewarded when with five yards needed he darted and dove until he had dammed up enough of the Ram forces to permit him a safe gathering of six points. However, shortly after he wandered from his chosen home, he was not able to get back again. Thereupon a group of young men of an amphibious nature, having adapted themselves to the changed conditions, decided to capitalize upon them. Foremost among these was Jim Cowhig—who straightway outshone the slickest of the beavers. He weaved and splashed for yard after yard, six, eight, ten and twelve in successive charges until the beavers swept now in waters too deep for them, subsided, and Boyle’s swan dive tied the score. Both teams were now on very amicable terms as they sported and reveled, each according to his liking—the Rams in the air. the beavers in the mud. The fun continued until late in the fourth quarter, when Fenton crashed through to block Davis’ punt and recover for a safety—and a safe margin for victory. Joe Zapustas played his last game for Fordham and his greatest. Once this brilliant Fordham star, ever willing and ready to sacrifice the individual praise and glory, was moved into the quarter-back position, the football destiny of Fordham for 193? was established. He expanded by the infinite breadth of his capabilities a position always open to censure where errors are gigantic blunders because even those who do not understand seem to know all.

IOUGH graduation had cut a wide swath in Coach KeNcher's corps of courtmcn. nevertheless even the most dyed-in-the-wool pessimist hardly anticipated a season’s record of six victories and ten defeats. Only one senior, Adolph Pingarron, abetted by six supposedly seasoned )umor$ and a promising group of sophomores, composed the clientele of the Maroon’s basketball forces at the start of the ’3 5 campaign. Hut, of the perennial embryo stars among the soph aspirants, only one or tsvo lived up to advance expectations, while the junior members slumped discouragingly, accounting thuswisc tor the aforementioned record. The opening encounter with the Alumni should have been, if nothing more, indicative of future events, tor the varsity were extended to emerge on top, 59—27. Danny Rinaldo, Moc Spillane and Tom Lynch were the chief contributors in victory. Off to a flying start, the team continued to ride the crest with a brace of decisive victories over St. Joseph’s and St. Peter’s. The former succumbed, 59—22, under a fast attack led by Ihll Fleming, while the "Peacocks” fell victims by a 32—16 count. It was in their encounter with the Jerseyites and the following contest with Yale that Fordham provided the only glimpse all season of real teamwork and coordination. A fighting Eli five, eager to repeat last year’s victory met unexpected opposition and was subdued, 44—41, in a bitterly fought overtime contest. Williams, Pepper and Fleming were the most effective against the Blue. The Rams, after taking four straight, fell victims to a lethargic spell that cost them the next three games. A veteran Dartmouth quintet gave the Maroon its first taste of defeat by virtue of a strong passing attack. The Hanoverians held a 20—4 lead at half-time that withstood Fordham’s second period rally led by the diminutive Danny Rinaldo. The blond-luired forward was the sparkplug of the Maroon’s attack and left the game practically exhausted from his efforts. Dannv Williams suffered an ankle inuiry in this contest that handicapped him for the remainder of the schedule. A mediocre Columbia five visited the Maroon gym and departed with a 4 3—12 victory, but only after a double-overtime session that furnished what was probably the fastest and most unorthodox contest of the season. Adolph Pingarron at right guard meshed seven field goals and one foul throw for high Thiee Hundred Fifty-fitescore of fifteen points. Syracuse, led by Alkoflf with eleven points, had no difficulty in chalking up a 32—22 victory over a rather tame Ram quintet. Seton Hall stayed long enough to furnish Fordham with its fifth win in eight starts. Jim Kane’s last minute field goal giving the Rams a 25—23 margin. Pingarron’s and Williams’ contribution of twelve points apiece was insufficient to stave oft a determined Colgate team and the visitors won 38—3 3. Pittsburgh, the best team to grace the Maroon gym m many a season, handed the Kellehermen a decisive cuffing m compiling a 47—16 score. The Panther five coordinated with amazing efficiency and never left the final issue in doubt. Insult was added to injury when the team traveled to New Brunswick to fall before an inferior Rutgers quintet, 28—18. With a starting five composed of four Sophs and one Junior, Fordham showed a surprising reversal of form in the first ten minutes of their fray with City College and then yielded grudgingly to the mythical Metropolitan champions by a 4—21 victory. "Sugar" Kane led the Rams on offense and defense, tallying nine points for a lost cause. Rider was the next game for the courtmcn and a 27—26 victory was Fordham's sixth and last of the year. N. Y. U. played host to the Maroon and erased somewhat the stigma of last year’s defeat by annexing a decisive 47—34 victory. Rinaldo’s fourteen points prevented the score from being an utter rout. The Round Robin at Madison Square Garden brought the two city rivals, St. John’s and Fordham. together fur the first time since 1929. The Rams outdid themseives in the lirsi twelve minutes, holding a 10—0 advantage before the Brooklynites broke «nto the scoring column. But Nat Lazar and Jack McGuiness led a second half advantage that nullified the efforts of Rmaldo and Danowski and the Maroon trailed 3 5—20, after a creditable performance, fordham tried hard for a victory in their final game of the season, but an aggressive Manhattan five would not be denied and eked out a 3 5—3 3 victory in an overtime contest. Hassctt and Brunelli stood out for the Jaspers, while Kane, Lashua and Danowski carried the brunt of Fordham’s attack. Thee Hundred Vifty-tixBASEBALL TI IE winds of March had scarcely chased King Winter from the I ordham campus, when Coach Jack Coffey introduced his ball-players to outdoor practice in preparation for the 1932 season, which was to open on the 26th of March against the Columbia Lion. In a pre-season interview. Coach Cotfcv expressed the opinion that the ’32 ivory collection was one of the hardest hitting teams he had ever coached. "If we can judge from last year’s performance,” said the coach, "we won't have any serious worries at the bat this season. Tobin, Zapustas, Radicc, Alvino, Fisher and Loehr arc all dangerous bailers and the rest of the team is well above the average with the stick. I look for a season of heavy hitting.” The infield and the outfield were practically intact from last year. The infield with Zapustas, Fisher, Coyle and Loehr was reinforced by Lynch, Pepper and McDermott, from Freshman, all of whom were to win regular berths. The outfield stood with Tobin, Alvino and McDonnell as first string flycatchers, pressed closely bv Fitzpatrick and Del Isola. The most serious threat to Maroon domination of Eastern baseball lay in a lack of experienced pitchers. The spikes left by Murphy, Aube and Andrews were waiting to be filled by a promising group of candidates, including Comcrford, I oughran, Auer, Graney, Keenan, Giacondmo and Sampson. The weather man must have had friends at Columbia. Temple and Seton Hall, for he spared them from the Ram’s big guns until later in the season and Fordham sought its first victory in the lair of the Tiger at Princeton. The Bengal was bagged with a score of 5 — 1. with Sophomore Ken Auer hanging up his first win for the Maroon, allowing but five scattered hits and fanning six opponents. A Jasper scalp was the next addition to the Ram’s trophies, when Manhattan came out on the short side of a 5—4 score in a ten inning game. Bob Graney handled the pitching assignment and was breezing along to a nice win, when a couple of Jasper singles and two Maroon errors in the eighth necessitated the extra frame, in which Fisher and Zapustas won the game with a handily executed double steal.

The pitching start was coming along tar above expectations and everything looked tine until the Boston College Eagle decided to show ort before the home folks on Patriot s Day in Bean town and revealed what good patriots they were by sending the Ram down to a 9—8 defeat, its first in three starts. The Maroon showed its strength even in defeat, collecting eleven hits, with Radicc garnering four out of four and Pepper, three out of four. On its way home from Boston, the Ram stopped long enough at Vale to effectively extract the Bulldog’s teeth with 1 1 runs to Yale’s 3. It was Ken Auer’s second straight win in two starts and though he allowed thirteen hits they were well scattered and, for the most parr, wasted. Fordham nicked three Eli pitchers for 19 hits, with "Jackie” Fisher taking the honors of the day—six hits out of six trips to the plate. It seemed as if the Maroon machine, once it got under way, couldn’t be stopped. The Columbia l ion was rudely butted back to Morningside Heights with a 10—2 defeat to brood over. The Rams punched 14 hits out of two Columbia hinders, while Graney, on the mound for Fordham, allowed nine f-'k to the I.ions. Pepper fattened his average with a single, a double, a triple and a home run in five trips to the rubber and Zapustas took second honors with three out of five. To celebrate the return of May, Fordham held a field day and invited Temple University to be the vie—er, guest. When the dust settled, it was discovered that the Owl hail been plucked to the tunc of 17—6. Sixteen hits were credited to the Maroon bats, with Fisher back in form again, accounting for five of his team’s hits in six times at bat. with a circuit clout among them. Tluu, in three straight games, the Maroon chalked up 41 runs and 49 hits, proving what a good prophet Coach Coffey was. if ? " if 1 r S3 Ken A i ui Manhattan, Duke and Seton Hall were next added, in that order, to the list of Ram victories. In trimming Manhattan 6—2. Auer registered his fourth straight victory and Fordham its sixth in seven starts. Duke came all the way from North Carolina to receive a 13 — 3 setback at the hands of the Maroon mowing machine, with big Red Comerford the winning mower, aided by Lough ran and Keenan and 12 hits oft the Maroon sticks. Seton Hall played a postponed game, which, for them, might well have Thuc Hundred Fifty-eightWinning run w B. C. game scored on Ban McDonnell's sacrifice ti been permanently postponed, tor they received their first defeat of the season by a 4—0 score. It was Auer’s fifth victory in as many games. Columbia played host to the Ram on May 11th and I'ke a good host, graciously conceded the game by a score of 5—1. Auer held the Lions to four well distributed hits, while his mares battered the Columbia stall for II hits. N. Y. U., the traditional Ram rival, was the victim of Auer’s seventh win, when on May Hth the heavy hitting of the Maroon sent the not so violent Violet down, with a lop-sided score of Lordham 10—X. Y. U. 2. Our lads snared hitting honors with 12 to the Violets’ five. A hard-hitting, wide awake Colgate nine lost a fiercely fought battle by a to 2 score on May 17th. The game went 11 innings with the score see-sawing the whole route. The timely hitting of Zapustas and Radice, who averaged 1.000 for the day, finally decided the contest in the 11th inning. Giacondino and Keenan held the mound for Fordham. The annual West Point excursion on the 21st was determined to be a complete success as Auer handed in his eighth victory at the expense of the "caydets.” hour to two was the score, with the soldiers getting eight practically useless hits and our athletes pasting the pellet all over the Point for 1 I bingles. Tobin, with three out of three, including a homer, and Zapustas, with three out of four, were the top hitters of the day. On May 28th. the Ram snared the B. C. F.agle when there were no patriots around and, by dint of a concerted effort in the ninth frame, emerged on the long end of a 5 to 4 score after a hectic battle. The Ram apparently had the game boxed and marked for shipment by sneaking over three runs in the first, bur the Fagle eased out of the cage with four runs in the third and thus the game stood until the Maroon pushed over two runs in the ninth to win the game. Auer pitched, of course, and was real stingy, giving B. C. only three hits. A string of 1 1 victories in a row proved too much for the Ram on Decoration Day and N. Y. U. evened the count with a 7 to i win over l ordham. This was the Ram’s second defeat in 15 games. rv H- ■■ Jack Loehr Three Hundred Tifty -nineThe Maroon wound up a successful season with a victory over Rutgers at New Brunswick on June 4th. The record for the campaign: fourteen victories and two defeats. Ike rise of Ken Auer, as the outstanding pitcher among the Eastern colleges, was the feature of the season. His string of ten wins and no defeats was unduplicated in the l ast. Hardly less spectacular was the hitting of the Maroon. Zapustas, Tobin, Fisher, Pepper, McDermott and Radice not only connected heavily but consistently and were the chief instruments in the Ram’s high scoring. Winning fourteen times in sixteen attempts is sufficiently impressive, but Fordham was in one sense fortunate in losing to two opponents, one of which was later overcome and the other of which had been previously flayed. Thus there was no team on their list whom the Rams did not defeat. Of the fourteen victories Kenneth "Dutch” Auer, who seems slated to follow a long line of Fordham men in a career beneath Big l eague suns after his days here, was credited with ten, and suffered no losses. Graney, a burly right hander, started off as if he would match Auer, but a torn muscle forced a prolonged stretch of inactivity upon him and when he was able to pitch again, his strategy in twirling to a determined N. V. U. batting make-up was wanting. Cranes defeated Columbia and Manhattan. Of the other two victories, one went to Comcrford. a left-hander whom wildness continually hampered, and one to Keenan, who pitched creditably enough in relief roles against the Duke, Colgate and New York University teams. Ciacondino was charged with a defeat early in the year at Boston, but came back in warmer weather to twirl clever baseball against Colgate and N. Y. U. Auer possessed mental qualities as a pitcher which quite outstripped aids arising from his physical prowess, which were reported as "a good, hard one, a sharp hook and good control.” Auer was always a self-contained moundsman. He was mindful of but one thing when on the rubber, and that was the retirement of three men in as wise a fashion as possible with a view to innings ahead and not to strikeouts; with a look to Fordham's fortunes and not to Auer’s. The men behind him recognized bis value and it gave them confidence which pervaded every Fordham contest. When an error was made behind him. Auer was least disturbed of the nine men His quiet confidence and poise was catching. His mates caught it and their natural ability at the bat and in the field found :t a valuable supplement in winning ball games. Recco Paone Three HundredCaptain Joseph P. McCluske VARSITY TRACK TTEADED by Joe McCluskey, Fordham’s hope and pride as well as Olympic siar. Jake Weber's track team experienced the most successful season in Miroon history. As usual, McCluskey excelled, losing only two races in sixteen, including victories in the National cross-country championships. National indoor steeplechase and the intercollegiate two-mile races and setting records in the last two. McCluskey kept Fordham before the eyes of the nation last summer when competing for Uncle Sam in the Olympics. He really placed second in the steeplechase race, but the runners were forced to run an extra lap, and in so doing, Joe was passed by F.vcnson of England. Returning to school in September, Joe kept in trim by leading his cross-country mates to a decisive victory over City College—with "Red” Mulvihill and Connie Ouinn following him. Next McCluskey placed second to Barker of N. Y. U. in the Intercollegiate hill and dale run with both men shattering the record. However, Joe redeemed himself by winning the Metropolitan and National titles. The Maroon track squad then concentrated on the indoor campaign. In the first meet of the season. Three Hundred Sixty-onerhe Brooklyn K. of McCluskey romped home first in the 5 000-meter run. Artie Jannell, sterling Frosh sprinter, won the 50-meter dash easily. The relay team of Bordon, McGrath, Mulvihiil and Gailico lost by inches in the 1600-meter college relay. McCluskey continued his winning streak, winning in the Paterson, Jefferson and Boston Meets, while the fast stepping relay four of McGrath. Gailico, Deubel and Mulvihiil handed Jake Weber triumphs in the Boston and Millrosc Meets. Artie Jannell placed third in a lightning field of sprinters in the Boston 5 0-meter dash and second in the Millrosc handicap dash. Georgetown was almost lapped by the Ram four in the Millrosc mile relay. In the Scton Hall medley relay race, Fordham captured the Governor A. Harry Moore Trophy, running the distance in 7:51. The biggest surprise of the season came when Paul Kanaly of Boston, beat McCluskey by an inch in tht New York A. C. two-mile handicap race in a thrilling contest. Calijonc garnered a third in the thousand handicap and the mile relay placed third to Manhattan and N. Y. U. The National Indoor Championships came next with "Smiling Joe” smashing the 5000-meter steeplechase record by winning easily in ‘7:07. The Ram 2900-meter medley team ran well, but placed only fifth even though it broke the world’s record when it completed the distance in 7:15. Gailico. Deubel, Mulvihiil and McCluskey showed rare form, but Joe, the anchor man, was unequal to the task of doubling up winning against such fast competition. In the I. C. 4-A indoor championships, the mile quartet of Borden. Gailico, Deubel and Mulvihiil ran the distance in 5:2 5.8, the fastest ever made by a Fordham team, but Yale and N. Y. U. nosed them out in a fast finish. McCluskey raised I'ordham’s colors by winning the two-mile run by 100 yards in the new collegiate record time of 9:16.6. The Freshman medley placed second in its race. Fordhamites dominated the Knights of Columbus meet when Jerry Calijonc won the handicap thou sand easily. McCluskey got revenge on Kanaly in the two-mile run by defeating him by eighty yards in the sparkling time of 9:15. The relay was barely beaten by Manhattan in a close battle. With the indoor season over, plans arc set for the outdoor races. It is expected that McCluskey will win the Intercollegiate outdoor two-mile, and hopes are held that Gailico, Mulvihiil, Piaw-lock and Deubel will also get some points for the Maroon. Thus the track stars enjoyed a great season. Next season should be even better, although McCluskey. the captain, will be graduated. The veritable "Maroon Streak” will be sadly missed, but with stealing competitors such as the above mentioned, Jake Weber, the greatest trainer in the country, will be able to develop many winners. Track has been on the upgrade since McCluskey came to hordham, and both he and Coach Weber have worked hard to try to bring together a team which is representative of high calibre Fordham teams.

Cahalan Tone Hundred Sixty-fourFRESHMAN FOOTBALL THROUGHOUT other pages of this hook, the modest, mild and unassuming character of the Freshman has been a fertile subject and a huge target for biting satire and the stinging arrows of abuse. But to those Freshmen whose broad shoulders and well-developed thighs and biceps arc the outgrowths ol an urge and passion so strong that it moves and compels them to reluctantly cast aside a trig book, a Horace or Socrates, dash to the gym, don cleats and pants, shoulder pads and jersey, race out upon the field and without much further ado be hammered about and bruised and trampled upon, by a better drilled, better organized varsity—to those we say is due not satire, but eulogy; not abuse, but tribute; not a word of thanks, but a volume of praise. Day after day, they meet the crushing power and versatile attack of a wcll-mgh flawless varsity. And if perchance. Maniaci or Shields or some other star in embryo, breaks through and spills the ball carrier, there is no word of praise for him. no pat on the back, no "nice tackle. Jack,” rather a wrathful coach demanding to know what happened to him who was supposed to "take him out.” And then the next play and a grim, square jawed youth determined not to "mess up this play,” the result is, of course, that a very harassed Freshman bears the brunt of the attack. On the following Saturday afternoon, Danowski sweeps around the end on this play and scores. Where is the glory due to the Freshman who aided in perfecting this play? There is no mention of him. Only one scheduled game was played by Coach Jimmy Murphy’s men. The rugged Samuel Johnson Prep School of Connecticut played the part of the opponents. This school has furnished the Freshmen a test, each year, which forced them to call out all reserves of skill and power. The game, on this occasion was no exception. It was bitterly fought, tooth and nail, yard by yard. The score was 15—0, Fordham scoring when Sarno recovered a bad pass from center early in the first period. On splendid bucking by Jannell, on dashing runs by Tuckcy, and some very accurate passing by Scrota and Gagliardi, they pushed over another score on a pass from O’Neill to Shields in the third period. Although this ended the scoring for the day, the superiority of the play of the Freshmen was unquestioned. and the great and splendid line play of Sarno, Rossi, Miskinis, Maniaci and Shields must not go unmentioned. It is neither our place nor our intention to heap glowing words of praise on these men of Freshman football. Others who will come after us shall, we arc certain have plenty of cause to do so, when these men crash the headline of All-American football. T hue Hundred Sixty-fncFRESHMAN BASEBALL WHEN the hist ball shot through the hoop late in March, a group of energetic young men did a quick change from the shorts and sneakers of the basketball court to the spikes and gloves of the diamond, jammed peaked caps on their heads and presented themselves to "Dinny” McNamara as candidates for the Freshman nine. Many were called but these were chosen for the starting lineup: Powers, Lcnoci. Sherry and Lashua in the infield; W'olfendale, Sarausky and Gorsky, to keep the garden; Harlow behind the plate and Estwanick, Lawler and Kennedy to b a file the opposing nines with various and sundry hooks, curves or what have you. The first game was with the Princeton cubs, who fell by the wayside when their bats developed holes and their fingers became thumbs. The score was Fordham Frosh 8, Princeton ’5 5, 2. Estwanick and Lawler shared the pitching assignment and did right nobly, yielding but hits between them. The Frosh also got hits, which were turned into 8 runs. George Washington High took the second game from our lads with an 8th inning rails and a 5—4 victory. "Fearless Freddy” Harlow distinguished himself with two singles. Ten errors by Textile and 15 hits by the Frosh were responsible for the yearlings’ second win, as they clubbed their way to 14—7 victory on Fordham Field. On a little trip to New Haven, the Freshmen slopped over at Yale long enough to teach the Yale Jayvcc a few things about the fine art of baseball, taking the Elm City collegians over the hurdles to the tune of 14—2. Lawler pitched superb ball, yielding but five hits in seven innings. Estwanick relieved him and gave nary a hit for the remaining two frames. Fifteen hits was the total for the Freshmen; Sarausky getting four out of five. To even up their average the Frosh dropped the next one to N. Y. U. Freshmen, making it three won and three lost. Manhattan caught them on the bounce and made ir three won and four lost. Our lads became determined then and wound up the season with a victory over the Junior Varsity of City College and a season total of four won and four lost. 'I bet Hund'cd Sixty-sixFRESHMAN BASKETBALL FRESHMAN basketball teams at Fordham have always appeared like future champions, ready to strengthen the varsity with their speed, talent and alertness. Back in our own Freshman year we saw such basketball stars as Willie Putzcr, Jerry Radicc, Jack Dugan, Johnny Byrne, Bob Graincy, Johnny King, Ardini, Hines, Rowley and Kane, and after witnessing every game they played, and judging from their thirteen victories out of fifteen starts, we felt certain that Fordham had a championship club for 1933. They had defeated the N. V. U. Freshman, the City College Jayvees, the Manhattan Freshman and the St. Michael’s 1930, Eastern Catholic High School Champions. Who wouldn’t vouch for such a team? But the fact is that not one man of the above group ever entered Senior year. The Freshman team of 1932-3 3 can be said to be on a par and even better than the Varsity; they have proven this in practice session. Both collectively and individually, they are, in our opinion, the stronger team. The Frosh have played good ball, shown plenty of class, team-play and coordination on the attack and the defense. But to say that they will be a still greater outfit in 1936 is a big statement to make. Eleven victories and two defeats, reads their record lor the past season. The two defeats were at the hands of the New York University and Manhattan Freshmen, both by close scores: N. Y. U. Frosh won by 2 5—24, and the Green and White Frosh by 2 5—2 3. The N. Y. U. defeat came after eleven straight victories. With lcs than three minutes to play in the Violet game, DcPhillips sank two foul shots. Young tossed one from the center of the court and Reinacher dropped in a foul to make the score 2 5—24. Reinacher tossed up another pass, but the ball waltzed around the rim as the game ended. In the last quarter of the Manhattan game, Fordham was ahead 23—14; the game seemed to be "sewed up” for the Frosh. But the Green Wave just began to roll and surge. McNally, Manhattan forward, tossed in two field goals and Hutchinson and Flannigan scored with a minute and a half to play. Hutchinson tosses a foul. McNally takes the ball from center and with ten seconds remaining, drops a one-hand shot from the side of the court. Results? Fordham, 23: Manhattan, 2 5. Reinacher. DePhillips, Fritzsche, Young. O'Brien. Brennan and Casell formed the nucleus of the squad. Fast, shifty, reliable, strong on the offense and defense, they should go a long way in collegiate basketball.

Three Hundred Set enty-ihreeTRADITION AT first we thought this w.is something like Subtraction and Division but found out later that it’s something the school is supposed to have laying around handy in case of argument. So we take History and skipping over the period between the Neolithic Man1 and I.o! the poor Indian who undoubted!' solved their Psych, and Ethics problems on Old Rose Hill by the Axe Method—we come to (lor the first time in four vears), we come to the signal year of 1846 when rhe good Jesuits settled here. They settled incidentally for forty thousand bucks. It they had come around two hundred years earlier they could have bought the whole city and had 9,976 left with which to start a football team. The faculty must have had few monetary worries in those days, however, for 1S62 saw Edgar Allan Poe (the boys called him Eddie) trotting over here daily to borrow money from Father Doucet et al. His financial embarrassment and the demands of his creditors at this time are said to have inspired that famous poem that goes on yard after yard with "The bills, bills, bills, bills, bills, bills, bills—” the name of which, something leads us to believe is "The Bills.” In those good old days when the only bustle on Fordham Road was the one the barmaid at the Raven Tavern was wont to wear, questions as momentous as the I. C. A. A. hoop-rolling championship and the diabolical influence of the horseless buggy afforded the stewdenrs matter for argumentation and annihilation. Finally, after a few historical buildings such as the Pie-Shop, the Old Second Division and the Castle had been wrecked by the arguing factions, the Dean set aside one room in which they might debate and wreck to their hearts’ content. Thus simultaneously was born the "Rec.” room and the Debating Society both of which are still extant. About the same time the Dean, appreciating the histrionic efforts put forth by stewdents in pleading their cases after four flunks, banded these actor collegians into a society known as the "Mimes and Mummies” to signify how dead were their chances with the faculty. After the Society’s first presentation it was found necessary to keep the audience awake by means of pep talks slapped on the walls of the auditorium. Strange to say, no one thought of the other alternative of doing away with the society. The Monthly happened about 18S2 and has been spasmodically littering the campus with unreadable odes and recondite essays ever since. I dited by an insidious group hidden in the catacombs about the grounds this periodical lias been growing steadily in popularity ’till it now ranks with the Scars and Roebuck Catalogue and the Sing Sing Annual, publications second to none when it comes to wedging doors or keeping the home fires burning. All these and more, such as the "Ram,” the "Canteen” and the "Maroon,” which can only be excused as necessary evils growing out of the war (cost la guerre, so to speak), form the body of traditions, the spirit of which may be seen hanging over the school on any nebular day. That spirit which has been distilled . . . er . . . instilled so strongly in us we here hope to perpetuate. And like the Scandinavian Club, lei’s hope that’s the Finnish of it.

Saving is a habit with Sandy! In the play Sandy took the role I). Plomi who is subsequently framed. It seems that while the hero was at college he had taken advanced plumbing and found the course a pipe. During the first Act he finishes his first job: fixing a water pipe that someone had clogged. The question of who should pay him for this work presented a real difficulty solved only by application of the old maxim that 'I fe who clogs must pay the piper.” The climax of the storv comes in the second Act when the hero saves the life of the President, played by Sandy’s twin brother, Iona Mac Truck. His Excellency, stopping at a hotel, had fallen asleep in the bathtub leaving the hot water turned on and would surely have been scalded to death had not the hero, D. Ploma, been janitor of the hotel and there was no hot water! As a reward. I).
