PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR CLASS
In a materialistic age replete with agnosticism and selfishness it is refreshing and inspiring to meet, no less be guided by, a society with the principles and the ideals of the Society of Jesus. To the members of that Society at Fordham we extend our appreciation for the splendid training they have given us. Real men. each and every one, they have held before us the high ideals of manhood. By their teaching and example they have moulded men from boys; men disciplined to the true concepts of things. One in particular, who by his kindly advice and genial companionship has made a deep niche in our hearts, we shall always remember. To the Rev. John P. Fitzpatrick, S.J., a man endowed with all the sacred traditions of his Order, we dedicate this ‘•Maroon” of nineteen
hundred and thirty-six.FOREWORD
0 decades ago the first “Maroon" was published. Twenty years have witnessed many changes in this great Catholic university; yet the world has not changed. The men of ’16 went forth to a world aflame; the dread spectres of the Apocalypse strode the earth, their shadows soon to fall o’er even this quiet campus. Twenty years later we of ’36 are confronted with the same mad scene; nations totter on the brink of another holocaust; industrial unrest is prevalent: man’s inhumanity to man is the order of the day. We have enjoyed four years of cloistered security; the peace of true religion; true philosophy, sound knowledge animates our being. We leave with the hope that real peace shall come to the world; that peace on earth to men of good will shall be the watchword of nations. To this end we dedicate our future; to Mary, Queen of Peace, we dedicate our lives. With these thoughts in mind we publish this, the history of our

33THE LAST NIGHT
We drink our toast to the dreaming ghost Of the days that are no more.
To the olden ways of golden days That have closed the golden door.
And if we cannot live again
in the halls of Yesteryear
Our hearts keep light for we know tonight
That the spirit lingers here.
Of remembered things the poet sings.
The sweetest thoughts of all.
And we shall sigh for times gone by Though well or ill befall.
Fortune hides deep in our souls.
Not with the whirl of stars.
So let us climb beyond the slime To storm at heaven's bars.
Not side by side but far and wide In other worlds alone It is ours to fight with tireless might Since the goal is each man's own;
Yet even then with Fordham men
The ghost of Yesteryear
Will linger on. to cheer us on,
As now he cheers us here!

He has never heeded the call to follow the line of least resistance, though that call has ever been loud and long. Jim has worked as well as any of us and an extra supply of gray matter has enabled him to sit back and look at other toiling mortals with a genial tolerance worthy of Horace. . . . We might easily envisage him as an efficiency expert of the first water. However, none of the cognoscenti have so far discovered what he intends to do in that line.

Among the most intrepid characters on the campus is the man who continues the study of chemistry beyond the required courses. Mario must be classed among the heroes, completing no less than six courses in that most difficult subject. With the knowledge gained therefrom, he is able to make enough destructive compounds to blow up the city; but we are sure he has no desire to achieve such dubious fame, because his disposition places him high among the campus good-fellows.

Bill has that outdoor look, that sarcastic wit, that carefree, jovial manner that so often goes with the profession of newspaper man. What more natural, then, that this suave, well-dressed Loyola High School product should become Fordham representative on one of the city's big newspapers? He mingles with the famous names of the sports pages at all the football, baseball and basketball games, and afterwards comments with a facile, barbed pen.

Among the more rabid sports fans on the campus. Joe will take second place in no discussion of the Great American pastime. His interests are sufficiently varied however, a fact which is shown by his large enthusiasm for the social activities on and off the campus. His intimates speak knowingly of how his proficiency in the all-important art of dancing was acquired. Joe himself insists his favorite diversion is sitting about the rec’ room on cold days, discussing anything from politics to parties.

All Hallows Institute
Officer and gentleman with or without act of Congress, scholar by grace of Fordham. coupled with an indigent incapacity for failure. Dan rated mighty near the top in everything he undertook. He was a familiar figure in the rec' room, where, during leisure hours, he was always more than willing to dispute upon any topic conceivable. The exemplification of impersonal sophistication and a generally non-irri-table character, he leaves us as the mature and fully rounded college man.

A modest reserve, a slight suspicion of radical Republican leanings, a gift for languages, and a strong feeling for his home town. Vassar. characterize Marty from Poughkeepsie. But despite the wide variety of his likes and inclinations. including those gatherings in the rec' room his nature always impelled him to seek out one spot, whether for work or amusement. It was really in the "Bio Lab" that Marty’s genius was manifest: it was there that one could watch him exercising creative power in the business of mounting specimens.

Steadiness is the keynote of Gene’s character in doing a titration, in handball, in studies, in friendship, which in him is as strong as his handclasp, one that only a few hardy souls with iron metacarpals and phalanges will brave. But it must not be thought he is always stern of brow -on the contrary he is seldom so. He never seems to hurry, yet gets more accomplished and knows more people than any three men.

Military stratagems, evolved upon several occasions, caused Lou to annex the soubriquet of “Little General.” His canny reasoning came into play upon other than military affairs, especially in helping out less fortunate and less gifted friends, thereby making also applicable the term “wizard." With all the admiration his brilliance aroused and all the respect which his ambassadorial dignity commanded, it will only take a small revolution to convert the “little general” to a "little king.”

There have been whisperings about the campus in recent years that members of the varsity athletic teams are constitutionally unable to become good dressers: this notion is refuted by Andy. Though he played a flashing infield game for Maroon nines for the four years, he has consistently maintained a standard of sartorial excellence hitherto unknown to baseballers. Not that baseball and beau-brummeling were his only accomplishments; for three bright years he aided the basketball team in achieving success.

The essence of "savoir faire.” the acme of nonchalance, meticulously neat, debonair, and suave, or any synonyms you can imagine, are attributes of this member of our "famous Phils." Twice a week. "Barr" would dispense with the tab collar and well-creased trousers, and would go mad in slacks and sweatshirt. A "hot-corner" artist, a basketball wizard, he blazed a wide trail through intramural sports, besides developing a talent for "pitch."

Mike became "Sportshots" Editor of the "Ram." His legions of friends concealed their esteem beneath a barrage of persiflage, but now let it be said. "Mike could take it with a laugh.”

Tacitus was a fair historian, but our Joe was an excellent one. Constantly absorbed in an historical document, it was a simple matter for Joe to quote authorities at will to the amazement and delight of his classmates. As one of the founders of the History Club, Joe was ever anxious to guide it safely for its first two years of existence. An honor student in other studies, we do not believe it is too much to anticipate a new Catholic historian in the future.

Words can hardly be found to describe John's fine character. With his light Pennsylvania drawl sounding in his inimitable loquaciousness, and with his homey down-to-earth attitude, John possesses a personality that lends a cheery atmosphere to all his activities. His shock of almost unruly hair, surmounting a tanned, not quite weather-beaten face, lends an airof distinction; while his clear, hard jaw bespeaks a quiet determination which we are confident will lead him to success in any field he selects.

Silence is often mistaken for wisdom, but in Frank’s case it is no mistake. It is dangerous to one’s good opinion of oneself to argue with him on most subjects. He always seems to be right. His low voice prevails amid shouted indignation. One feels somehow futile in the face of his quiet wit and unreasonable reasonableness. He intends to be a teacher and, it is safe to say. will be one of those who are never caught off guard by some pert student.
GEORGE JOSEPH BIERNESSER. A.B.
Almost everyone on the campus can be characterized in some way. as an athlete, a scholar, a social light . . . but George appears to be our only honest-to-goodness gypsy. For he declares that his favorite diversion is roaming; he is. in fact, susceptible to that most exhilarating of maladies, the wanderlust. But not to let him get too far away from the campus, he is a swimmer of no mean ability, having done duty with the varsity natators during saphomore year.

A widely read Shakespearean scholar, and an ardent devotee of Chesterton's paradox. Henry loves to peruse the classics, both ancient and modern. He is a component of the famous King’s Chow Mein Club, while his off days take him to the vicinity of Georgian Court. The study of Education was one of his strong points, perhaps indicating the trend which his later life will take: he denominates Ethics as his favorite curricular exercise. Henry is an avowed enemy of rapid transit.

Doubtless in a few years he'll be one of those distinguished alumni, delivering speeches hither and yon with much eclat. We'll always look forward to meeting him.

Biv claims that in four years of commuting from Newburgh to Fordham. he has traveled approximately 95,000 miles. If you consider this fact, and then glance at the boy s activities, the inevitable question arises: When does he sleep? As a matter of fact, we don't believe that Biv ever does sleep; he's got such enthusiasm, such a terrific driving force, such a consuming ambition to be a great doctor, that he probably regards sleep as only for sluggards not for a Newburghian.

Bill has had four years here as a virtuoso and impresario of no small note. He climaxed his career by attaining the post of concert master of the orchestra, in which capacity he functioned with eclat. A lengthy sojourn in the Glee Club has made him one of the more suave members of the class. He has been one of the first of us to enter Medical School, where his talents and manner will undoubtedly bring him as much success and popularity as he has found here.

Reserved in speech and manner. Tony has sought out as his intimates those most nearly akin to him in nature. His years at Fordham have been devoted to assimilation of the formulae and phenomena of the pure sciences. But philosophy, too. found him an ambitious student, and many were the hours spent in poring over ethics and psychology texts, with noble results. Tony will probably go on to study medicine, in which his background of science and philosophy v ill serve him well.

Charlie was notable fcr his political activity. Most any election found him scurrying from group to group giving rapid fire speeches in behalf of his candidate. Unfortunately the luck of Charlie’s candidate was not always as consistent as the eloquence of the supporter. When not thus engaged. Charlie could be discovered under an armful of science texts and lab manuals. He was known for the impressive wisdom of his silence. Of him it might be said. "Cum tacet. clamat."

Bill is the man who believes in going out and doing things with good, sincere efferts, but he is decidedly not the fellow who goes about telling everybody about it. He was this year a leading cause of the fine success of the Harvester Club, even though he was not the one who took the bows. He has his light moments too, and when the lads don tops and tails. Bill is right there with the best of them. So when you need a real pal. take Bill Bowden.

George combined the science of military tactics with that of chemistry in such a manner that neither science suffered: and somehow contrived to drag down high marks in both subjects without suffering much himself. Of course, his reason for taking ROTC was probably not the same as that for which he took chem; after all, they don’t provide chemistry students with uniforms. And maybe George doesn’t fill out that “RO” uniform in the best traditional manner.

There were attachments up Buffalo way that kept Charley from listening too intently to the blandishing words of the gals of this big city—but that didn't prevent them from trying. The lad's faultless attire, his charming cynicism, his compelling poise were too attractive to be ignored. And the combination of adeptness in chemistry and adroitness in handling the barber’s shears made Charlie just as popular with the boys and with the teachers.

John is popular without being con-spicuous. He dislikes any extremes in dress, manner or speech. His hobby is athletics in general and basketball in particular. No subject seems to be his favorite because he excels in all. He hopes to enter business and we are assured that his perseverance, ability and personality will bring him success. Four years’ close observation of Grig’s alertness has convinced us that he will be holding the knob when opportunity knocks at his door.

Jack of the lazy drawl and unruffled manner is what we generally term a "character." By his actions he dissembles the capacities and capabilities of which he is master. But in Senior, he was found out as a trained observer and was therefore impressed into the "Ram" as star sports reporter. Jack’s presence among us has been an inspiration and he knows it. His preferences are neatly catalogued in his intellect, and its unveiling would show a liking of Glen Gray, profs who "make jokes," the Petty girl, and Mike Barsa.

Bernie can be seen almost any place where Fordham men traditionally gather. Known as the "shiek,” he is reserved in manner. Well-dressed and socially prominent. Bernie has that keen intelligence which gives rise to exceptionally pointed comment. He is the managing type; whatever form of business comes under his guidance should not fail. Bernie finds time too, for athletics, school activities, and recreation, all of which is another way of saying that he is a great lad.

In regard to Bill we must reinforce the point by adding that he has no enemies. He holds title to an acute business instinct which moves him always to be up and doing, and doing well; while the better interpretations of the word "cagey’' apply to his finesse at bridge.

Joe is a lover of beauty amid order. His penchants are characteristic: Fr. Cox's lectures, the discipline of West Point, and the wild ruggedness of Bear Mountain’s impressive grandeur. Note that all these have one quality in common: order. His study of literature is not a thing apart, but interdependent upon his observations of human nature. Hence it is not surprising that his favorite authors are the keenest portrayers in our language of man’s complex nature. Dickens and Shakespeare.

Noted far and wide for his excellent taste for clothes Frank was the type that your eyes instinctively follow. And once you heard him sing or play, your ears would follow too. as did those of Mendel and French Club members, when Frank entertained at their gala banquets. Like his poetic idol, Keats, Frank is an embryo medico, and evidently that desire for the open spaces is shared in common with his favorite Willa Cathcr. In regard to sports, only one has any claim on Frank's affection, swimming, which he enjoys both as participant and as spectator.

A rare compound of oddity, frolic and sincerity marks Bill as one of the "memorables"of our college days. Well known are his accomplishments in the world of skating and wide isthe fame he brought to Fordham. Bill may not always be the fellow with the best of kings but he is the king of good fellows. Combined with an enviable athletic record, especially in the skating world, Bill evidences that spirit of friendship which has carved a place for him in the memory of his classmates.

"Little Joe" as he was known to his confreres, besides laboring industriously in the “Ram" office could also be found enjoying himself to the utmost at every social function, on and off campus. He will be missed by all who associated with him.

Never offensive, always courteous and jovial. Dick was an ideal classmate.

Picture to yourself a Saint John’s Hall ‘’discussion bout." Someone makes a remark and. in the common parlance, "leaves himself open." Slowly the great Muldoon rolls over, drawls out a word or two . . . and another "bon mot" has been created. Joe's witticisms are of the pleasant variety, applied to himself also if he thinks the occasion demands, and never rankling. But he was at his best when riding the "reefers."

Toni finds time to direct athletics for youngsters at a community center, and is extremely popular with them.

He has been dabbling in two-dollar stocks on the Street these last few years under the guidance of an “old grad.” who. rumor has it, is a bear. He made a name for himself in the field of journalism by editing a weekly newspaper-magazine in that section of the wilds known as Jackson Heights, an achievement of rare and real promise. He will sell you things you don’t want, or even the suit of clothes you're wearing, if you give him half a chance. Such acumen surely cannot go unrewarded!

Bob stepped from an enviable athletic record at Fordham Prep to an even more enviable record in athletic achievements at the college. A brilliant forward on the basketball team for three years. Bob was the type of player known as the “ball-players’ player.” His flocr work was beautiful to watch and his speed made him difficult to follow. And on the diamond, he outdid himself in efficiency and ability. A faster, more skilful and inspirational shortstop Fcrdham has not seen in many years.

Joe might sometimes be disregarded because of his size. Even a brief acquaintance will be enough to convince anyone that Joe is to be taken into consideration at all times. Sage advice flows from his lips, as befits an earnest student of Education and Psychology. At a dance his table is most popular, especially when Joe gives his interpretation of the “flea hop." But his good spirits are not alone the cause of Joe’s popularity, for he is as good as his word, and the word is always good.

Graham likes to surprise us through familiarity with the recondite—not to insinuate that he is unfamiliar with the practicalities of life. But Graham has the soul of the artiste, the litterateur, and can discourse with equal felicity and facility on the impressionistic school of art and the most unknown phases of the Italian Renaissance. He is far more widely read than most of us. and the work of his pen has frequently appeared in the “Monthly." His lighter products, delineating the morning of the debonair delinquent were always popular.

Don’t commit yourself in class, in love, or in filling out the Senior preferences is one of his guiding principles.

Time is a laughing girl Who skips and dances,
Slips and glances
Down the sunny stairways of our dreams. Moving lightly,
Flashing brightly No more sightly
Form in angel chambers ever gleams.
And I go dancing after her
To a mystic merry measure,
Nor will all the lures of paradise Entice me from my pleasure.
Yet now and then I wish that she Would pause A moment on the stair,
And let me press her close to me And rub my fingers through her hair.

THERE I NO NECO TOR US TO COMO THE FILES IN SEARCH OF
• Occupying a most uncomfortable status in this worthy tome, since we are loath to intrude on the sacrosanct garden of memories that the men of '36 have so carefully nurtured. we nevertheless set about to record our history in the yearbook style now steeped in tradition. For it is a hallowed adage that what graces the pages of an annual should be taken "cum grano salis." Ever since Cicero was chosen "Most Glib" by Rhodes Seniors, yearbooks have perennially persisted in taking Thaddeus Q. Squinch, who spent four years twirling his thumbs in sullen solitude, and suddenly revealing this unhappy moron as a man "who will go far. cne from whom we shall surely hear in the years to come." • Fortunately, however, v e need no recourse to such time-honored devices. For by a strange stroke cf chance, the Class of 1937 places us in a position where we can record their achievements for posterity with both extended praise and a strong degree of truth. Their accomplishments have been many during the past nine months and our sole difficulty in penning this thesis lies in attempting to avoid a mere recital of drab facts. There is no need for us to comb the files in search of outstanding men: they

leap to mind in amazing numbers. • It all began last autumn. Fcr cn those windy Saturdays when a great Ram eleven battled some famed foe. it was usually Frank Mautte who would bring 80,000 to their feet as he snake-danced to a touchdown; or Leo Paquin, breaking through to smash a rival play: or Nat Pierce. Vin Lombardi. Bill Mc-Gettrick. Phil Maricn and Jim Lawlor thrilling the black stands with hard line play: or Andy Palau, Joe Dulkie and Warren Mulrey. reaping backfield honors: or perhaps Frank Culkin. as he bustled about with managerial duties. And next fall, when Captain-elect Mautte leads his team agai nst the strongest array ever to face a Maroon team, the class of '37 will roar into its own on the gridiron. • When winter came, and the Ram quintet began to patrol the Gym floor, Creighton Drury rang up 80 points, as should be expected of a then-veteran and now-Captain-elect. While Vic Del Guercio. Jim O’Hara and Jack Daley began to gather the experience which will make them Ram mainstays next December. • Spring! And Juniors galore raised Jack Coffey’s diamond hopes.

and George Robinson, the budding philosophers strengthened every position. And but a step from the diamond. Vic Del Guercio and Ray Walsh proved their claim to tennis supremacy on Rose Hill. Of Jim Rafferty, one-man track team, we need no mention, the whole sports world has seen to that. • An impressive sports array! But it was in the non-athletic realm that far greater prominence was accorded men of ’37. The ’ ‘•Ram’’ staff boasted of an unusual number, men who not merely belonged but held
responsible posts. Jim Donovan held the reins as Editor-in-Chief, while Don Gormley and Tom Loguc assisted as members of the News Board. Charlie Hartnett was co-editor of the ever-popular "Ramblings" column; Bill Parker carried the “Off Campus" review to a new prominence: Jack Shanley. Ed Lund. Jim Duggan and Martin Hession were capable and featured writers. Then mention must be made of a highly specialized group which included everything from the Reference Manager to the Efficiency Expert; Dan Brannigan. George Fuller. Jim Ormsby, Charlie McNulty and Joe Garibaldi. • Other college publications benefited by the talents of Junior. Ray Ripple continued his delightful verse in the "Monthly" columns, and Mike O’Neill. Ralph deLeon and Bernard Daenzer contributed various articles to its pages. “Fordham - France" numbered many a Junior among its contributors. •
John C. Madigan. Thomas Mitchell. Louis Wolf. Tom Rooney and Angelo Torrisi took active part in all activities of the Spanish Club.
Gerard McNulty. Gerald Coffey. Bill Coogan.
Louis Krussman, Emmett Eaton. Frank Reheuser, Gene Ryan. Modesto P. Catanzaro,
Thomas Cassino. George Bolint and Joe Audino were among those in "white tie and tails" who sang at the Town Hall Concert of the Glee Club. • The Mimes was an organization particularly indebted to the Junior Class. Ralph deLeon. Jack Shanley.
Martin Hession. Ray Ripple. Bill Nevins,
Stewart MacKenney and Larry Donoghue were
Thespians all, starring in both the Varsity Play, “The Wolves” and the One-Act Contest. And it should not be forgotten that not only did Mike O’Neill, ’37, take first prize in the latter competition for his “Fool of the World.” but Marty Hession was adjudged best actor for his character portrayal. • In the lofty chambers of the Council of Debate, where the fate of Mussolini and the Supreme Court often hung in the balance, Larry Donoghue, Bill Coogan, Ed Tehan. Don Gormley, Jack Shanley, Jim Ormsby, Jim Somerville, Louis Wolf, Vincent Lee, Francis McGlynn, John Tully and John Madigan were among the Juniors who rose to do verbal battle. In the Mendel Club, Bill Eisenmenger and Bill Mullin discussed biological problems and contributed to the “Cabmuth." • Sodality members were too numerous to mention. But John Barry, Bill McDermott, Larry Donoghue and Martin Hession were outstanding among those who delivered addresses to the group. Fully half the members of Junior year were enrolled in one of the two sodalities for which they were eligible. • Class Officers for the year were: President. Edward A. White: Vice-President, James E. Brearton; Secretary, Francis G. Mautte: Treasurer, Kenneth J. McCarthy. And on the all important Ring Committee, for whose work the class now expresses its thanks, were included John Graham, the chairman, Edmond Tehan, William McGettrick. Robert Walsh, Matthew Boylan. William Sweeney and John Walsh. • So the year passed. There was the dismissing of universal scepticism with an extended shrug of the philosophical shoulders; we delved far into the “most abstract concepts of being”; we—but why recall. As June nears and we look forward to the last of four brief years on Rose Hill, all that has seemed so vital during the past nine months becomes mere memory. While Psychology and Ethics loom up in the none-too-remote future. Pleasant spectres! “Carpe diem,” we sing; then quickly subdistinguish. James A. Donovan,’37.

• About the Ides of September the sophcmcres triumphantly returned to discharge the traditional duty of welcoming the freshmen. The period of servitude expired, the Class of '38 was now to play the more dignified role of upper classmen. They set to work willingly, and very quickly the caps, ties and buttons were to be seen all over the campus. worn by the sheepish lads who walked on the cobbles. • The incoming students were impressively reminded of their duties by Bill Pfister. Chairman of the Vigilance Committee, and his capable cerps of assistants, who carefully supervised their actions. The yoke of sophomore tyranny, however, came to a pleasant ending on November 19. at the successful banquet held in the Hotel Roosevelt. By October 1. extra curricular activities were in full swing, with the men of '38 well represented in every department. • On December 12 and 13. the annual varsity play was presented, the selection for the occasion being “The Wolves" by Romain Holland. The superb acting of Jarvis Rice furnished a striking contribution to the success of the performance. Other members of the cast who acquitted themselves very creditably were John Bauer.
7oidhamTMfc IKAOlIIONAt. OUir Ot WILCOWINO THI FWWM»N "
Joseph Farrell and William de R. Taaffe. A splendid spirit of cooperation was manifested by the sophomcre representatives in staging this production. • In the field of religious activity the sophomores continued to take a real and deeply earnest part. Shortly after the beginning of the term the Holy Rosary Sodality was reorganized under the direction of Father Colligan. Edward McGinty and Bill Love and Caesar Altomare. all sophomcres, are officers of the Society. There is every indication that the members of the scphomcre class realize the importance of religion both in their own lives and in the life cf the University. • A vote of thanks is certainly due to those members of the Class of '38 who have helped to make the “Ram” one of the leading college weeklies. To Leo Locmie. Justin McCarthy and John McGurty. we are indebted for lively news stcries and fer their very readable reports of debates, plays and lectures. Bill Love and Jchn Crowley regaled us with sparkling chatter about sperts. a department in which they always proved themselves well posted and Bill Pfister did effective work on the business staff. • In the realms of poetry and prose the members of the sophomore
N I N E r
class were well represented. They cooperated loyally with Father Dolan and furnished various deserving contributions for the columns of the "Monthly." Notable in this respect were the efforts of Robert Doerr and William de Rohan Taaffe. They give such unmistakable promise that we feel sure the "Monthly" will not lack talent for the coming two years. • The sophomores also took an active interest in the sessions of the Hughes Debating Society, where the budding rivals of Cicero and Demosthenes are given frequent opportunities to practice. Under the direction of Moderator Mr. McAuley considerable progress has been made. Debates have been held with teams in New England. Pennsylvania and Washington. The weekly meetings have been the scene of many interesting and vehement forensic displays, with the genial Joseph Larkin as presiding officer. • It is of interest to note in this connection that three members of the Sophomore Class who belong to the debating society qualified for the "Oratorical Contest.” These were Brian McDonough. William Mattison and Leo Loomie. All acquitted themselves well. Leo Loomie winning the distinction as the only sophomore in many years to be adjudged second best speaker. This year, for the first time in the history of Fordham. a sophomore public speaking contest was announced. • The One-Act Play contest took place February 14. "A Chinaman’s Chance" by Robert Doerr was awarded second prize. Henry Goode. John Conway and Joseph Stuckhart had prominent roles in this performance and portrayed their roles in brilliant fashion. Jarvis Rice and Joseph McKenna did effective acting in other plays. •
In the "Horace Bimillenium" observance the sophomores were also prominent. Some of the best studies contributed to the symposium on the illustrious Latin poet were written by Joseph Farnan, John Dunn and Robert Fahey.
• In the field of Athletics, we find that the Class of ’38 has provided Fordham with some of her most brilliant performers. We cannot

look back at the football season without recalling the great play of Franco, an All-American ; the running of Woitkoski, the passing of McKnight, and the memorable defensive work of Wojciechowicz, Druze and Lock. Others who are almost certain of regular positions next year are Borzin, Gangemi, DeMarco and Gurske. With such potential football talent available, we feel confident that next year’s team will bring new laurels to Fordham. • The outlook for basketball is improved by the contribution of sophomore talent. Dick Davis has made great progress and is sure to be an important factor in Fordham’s success next year. Dick started as a regular for the first time in the Manhattan game and those who saw him on that occasion regard him as a player of great promise and outstanding ability. He'll prove worthy of such an estimate. • Down below the gym floor —in the swimming pool—we found Johnny Lyttle, the coach. He was in the best of humor and full of confidence. His face was wreathed in smiles as he watched Whitey Schirmer break the pool records in the 220 and 440. Here again the sophomores are “in the swim” and making good. • The Track Team depends largely for support on members of the Sophomore Class. Arthur Kneen, Paul Fay and
Victor D'Amore registered some fine performances on the one and two mile relay teams. Kneen also ran in a few special races against great runners like Eddie O'Brien of Syracuse and others in the big indoor meets of the season. • Finally, with the passing of basketball, we turn to the king sport of spring, baseball. The pitching staff will be greatly bolstered by the addition of Gurske. Sattlcr and Aiken, and Ed. Franco will ease the situation behind the plate. • Thus we have given a running survey of every college activity in which the class is engaged. There is room for improvement in the record and yet it is one of which every sophomore may well feel proud. We did our best and derived much satisfaction from the success achieved by members of our

• To every Freshman entering college, a new life, a new atmosphere is opened. Many of the rules and regulations that made his high school days a bore arc forgotten. But many are the responsibilities that are added. Here, for the first time, he is really on his own; here it is up to the individual whether or not he succeeds or fails. • On entering this new community of activities and friends, the average Freshman feels he is but a drop of the concentrated essence of insignificance. While his pride is being leveled with the Freshman cap. tie and button, the badges of his humble station, he is faced with the problem of strange people, studies and customs. Here it is that his adaptability is put to test and the stuff of which he is made is proven. • The class of ‘39. composed of some 475 young high school graduates, received its introduction to campus life in Collins Auditorium. There Fr. Deane extended the welcome and the well-wishes of the College to the new class, emphasizing the fact that a good scholastic start should be its immediate objective. Admission to the many organizations was offered, their activities described, and the importance of extra-curricular interests
IMP JUNIORS AND SFNIORS
pointed out. Then Brian McDonough, the president of the Sophomore Class, added his cordial welcome to that of Fr. Deane. • Freshman Week followed and during it, regardless of what you were in high school or who you were in prep., the Freshman’s lowly status in life was indelibly impressed on him. This humiliating degradation was firmly and thoroughly administered to one and all by an organization known as the Vigilance Committee. To form this diabolical group, all Sophomore was scoured for its worst elements. All the cunning and ingenuity of their evil minds was trained upon the helpless Frosh. But the victims took the hazing well, realizing that a year hence, their day would come. • Shortly after classes had begun, the Mass of the Holy Ghost was celebrated, calling down the blessing of God on all scholastic endeavors for the school year. For three days the annual retreat for Freshmen was conducted by Fr. Moore in the lower chapel. • Turning from the spiritual side for a moment, we find athletics well taken care of by the Freshman football team. To Coach “Hughie” Devore should go most of the credit fcr shaping into form one of the most powerful and suc-
cessful units to represent Ford ham in recent years. Bergin County Junior College opened the season. Although greatly outweighed, they turned in a courageous fight and were defeated 20-0. Next in line came Wyoming Seminary, noted for its high calibre teams. After a stiff session, the Fordham Yearlings, however, handed them their only setback of the season, the score board reading 13-2. The Ramlets completed their successful season by defeating the N. Y. U. Freshmen 18-6 in a game packed with thrills. Here the team by a coordination of first-class line playing and running attack, showed its worth and won the decision. • This year's Freshman team will contribute a good deal of strength when the varsity turns out for practice next fall. Among the more outstanding players were Beale, a shifty halfback, who teamed up with either Hearn, a left handed passer, or Brodi, a lightfoot runner at the other halfway post. Addonizio, a clever field general, with Pearson as his alternate, directed the attacks. The largest back on the sguad and an expert at cither line plunging or defensive play, Chesna, plus Ray Mozzer, his passing and punting understudy, completed the back-field. The balanced line included Sheehan, Jacunski, Hyde and Lewis at the wings: Zaloga, Stancavage. Stanton at the tackle posts: Baker, Hayes, Kochel and Monica holding the guard positions and the three centers.
Vanjura. Paskavich and Jerman alternating at the pivot. • The Annual Freshman Ban-guet was a complete success in every way.
Piloted by Brian McDonough and Vito F. Nole. the president and treasurer respectively of Sophomore, it served as a means for the members of Freshman to become acquainted with each other and their officers: George G. Gallico. president: Charles F. Murphy, vice-president:
Robert Hassmiller, treasurer: and John L. Mc-Intire. the secretary. Fr. Hogan and Fr. Deane were introduced and Fr. Deane, in turn, introduced Mr. Raymond D. O'Connell, the guest speaker of the evening. The theme of Mr.
7otd.li amN ( T E E N THIRTY-NINE
O'Connell's address was the value of college life, college friends and a college education. • The cross-country team, composed of Slater, Morese, Peterson and Sheehan, ran with the best in various meets and had a successful season. • Throughout the year, those interested in debating distinguished themselves. Those composing the team, Keavy, Smollen. Wilson. Dooncy, Downs. Lyons and McCarthy, met such teams as the Princeton, C. C. N. Y., St. Peter’s and Villanova Freshmen in their intercollegiate debates. • The Freshman Basketball team had an unusually active season, in the course of which it met defeat but once. Numbered among those which fell before it were N. Y. U., Yale. St. Francis Frosh and the Kip's Bay Club. 'Bob” Hasmiller, the high scorer and outstanding player, was supported by Beale, Brassel, Sheehan. Coyle. Jacunski and Hyde. The team composed of Olsafsky, Brady, Dooley, McGetterick and Lyons, which played in the interclass games, just missed winning the interclass crown. • A large group turned out at Coach Weber’s call and after a period of training, were entered in several meets. The relay team, which included Frank Slates. P. S. A. L. mile champion; George Gallico, former Fordham Prep
star; Mike Hearn. Jersey sprint champion; Ralph Morese and Vincent Healy, won the K. of C. mile relay in the fast time of 3:23 6 10; and placed second in the N. Y. A. C. mile relay. Frank Slates, a dark horse in a very fast field, succeeded in crossing the line in second place in the I. C. A. A. A. A. mile. • A group which received little notice despite its steady work was the Freshman swimming team. It defeated all opposition during the year, and the work of O'Neil, 50 yardsman; Desmond, back stroke; Pfeiffer and Condell, 220 yarders was particularly outstanding. • The budding playwrites also had their day in the Freshman One-Act Play Contest. George Gallico was the winning author with “Zither Blues,” a comedy. Wilbur F. Stanton, ’39.

If I could only for an instant run—
Like some sweet child that finds himself alone Through all the golden chambers of the sun Then could I hate far less this mortal sod, Knowing in truth the best of all things known: That I had kissed the flaming feet of God.

• Age must always demand respect; for that reason we believe that the Parthenian Sodality is one of the most important and valuable organizations on the campus. Founded in the earliest years of Fordham, it has continued down the years as a most potent force in the lives of Fordham men. • Restricted to resident students of the college, it has nevertheless exerted influence on all who have attended Fordham through its activities in the fields of liturgy and Catholic Action. Every spring the sodality sponsors the beautiful ceremonies for the Blessed Virgin in the Quadrangle. Gathered there around the statue of the Blessed Mother the students raise their hearts and voices in praise of the majesty and glory that is Her’s. • Chief among the activities sponsored by the sodality within its own membership are the catechetical work and the symposia. The former is carried on by the resident students themselves among the less privileged children of the city, and is rich in spiritual and personal reward to those whose sacrifice it is. The symposia are more recent innovations, instituted by Father Moore in the interests of Catholic Action. They were conducted during Lent by representatives from all Catholic colleges in and around New York.

• In most colleges, sodalities mean nothing mere than an hour's prayer once a week, with a sermon and a few hymns. To the student whose normal moods are not conducive to religious ecstasy the meetings are very often regarded as dictated by duty and fitness rather than by vital interest in the activities of the sodality. • At Fordham there is at least one sodality which can stand on its own feet and depend on its own appeal to attract members: it is a sodality which realizes that Catholic Action means action just as it means Catholicism. • Its activities, manifest strikingly how seriously, how militantly its members take their religion: the catechetical work, the propaganda work, the periodic symposia on vital and important questions of the day, the valuable research into the liturgy and history of the Church, which has aroused so much genuine interest among the student body, and finally the highly exciting speeches that mark the weekly meetings. Speeches that clamor for racial equality and social justice, speeches that move and demand attention and interest. • Although there are too many responsible for such a spirit and enthusiasm to be enumerated here in full, it can be said that the major portion of the responsibility rests on the shoulders of Fr. H. J. Andersen. S. J.. the moderator and James Welch. 36 the prefect.

• Not in many years hasthe Harvester Club been so flourishing and active as it has been during the past year. Granted a new lease on life under a group of ambitious and determined officers who pledged themselves to restore the Harvester Club to its former high position among the Campus organizations, this organization now represents one of the largest and most active clubs on Rose Hill. • No small share of the progress accomplished during the year is due to the regular members of the club who wholeheartedly cooperated and took a personal interest in each activity on the club’s varied schedule. The most successful affair sponsored by the Harvester Club during the past year was a combined Smoker and Raffle held in November. • This year the Harvester Club was under the guidance of a new and progressive moderator. Father James A. Cahill. S.J. who has taken the club and all its activities to heart. We can sincerely say that Father Cahill and Roger Durand and his associates have been instrumental in breathing a new spirit into an organization that was losing life rapidly because of a lack of activity. Under such ideal leadership, the Harvester Club once more has gained its place of prestige and honor on Rose Hill.

• The Holy Rosary Sodality is devoted to a greater appreciation and love of the Holy Rosary and of the one whom it honors, the Blessed Virgin. Composed of Freshman and Sophomore day students, it affords these men an opportunity for Catholic Action and for their own spiritual well being. In the graces derived from its quiet services, the sodalist finds sufficient help to lead a real Catholic life. Some sodalists have enlisted as instructors in Christian Doctrine in various parishes, while many others are spiritual leaders in their own communities. • The programme of the sodality is quite simple. Every Thursday noon, sacrificing the lunch peried. men march over to the Church for the regular meeting. This opens with an invocation to Mary, followed by a short hymn. Then the Moderator. Rev. John J. Colligan. S.J.. gives a short talk usually concerning some saint whese feast has been celebrated during the week, often concerning vocation and other vital topics. Immediately after this there is a short discussion of the plans for the next week. The meeting ends with a decade of the Rosary, and another short hymn. • Through their voluntary attendance and faithful interest in this sodality, students are gaining a moral strength and mental capability which will win for themselves the titles. "Leaders in Christ."

• It takes a good deal of aplomb and poise to be an altar boy at a Solemn High Mass — especially when you have to swing the censer in full view of the student body, not all of whom are properly aware of the solemnity and beauty of the ceremony. That is why. perhaps, the St. John Berchmans Sodality is so noticeably composed of the higher type of resident student; for it is the foresworn duty of the members of this sodality to assist at all functions of a religious nature that take place in the college. • In the minds of most students, however, the St. John Berchmans Sodality swings into action only at these ceremonial occasions, such as High Masses, or First Friday Devotions; they do not know, these students, that the members of this organization serve mass in the College Chapel every day of the school year, a record of faithfulness and attendance that no other organization in the college can claim. It is. we think, in these unheralded, unpublicized sacrifices that the true worth of the sodality and its members is to be recognized. • The sodality meets regularly to discuss and have explained various phases of the Mass and the ceremonies that accompany it. And in the spring, the young men's fancies turn to the annual banquet.

• There is only one day in the entire school year when the college as a whole realizes the existence of the St. Vincent de Paul Conference; that is the day before the Christmas Holidays start. For it is then that those slim white envelopes make their rounds, gently but urgently asking assistance for those whose lot is not so fortunate. Not that this is the only activity of the “Saints”—by any means; the members have distributed magazines among the Bronx hospitals during the year and have also traveled about New York City to teach religion to the children in the various welfare centers. • In order to effect a more cohesive and unitary plan of operations the Conference sends representatives to all the monthly meetings of the Bronx St. Vincent de Paul chapter, and helps as much as it can, the work of that organization. It is regrettable that such an excellent organization as the St. Vincent de Paul Society should receive so little attention from the publications of the college, and by the same token it is truly magnificent that with so little publicity, so little tangible return, the enrollment is so consistently enthusiastic.

• The caustic wit of John Hayes, the cool logic of Phil Reilly, the overwhelming sincerity of Hugh McCabe, the compelling oratory of Bob McElligott. the robust eloquence of Larry Donoghue, the conversational persuasion of Tom Hilbert every member of the Council of Debate has his own distinctive style of delivery, his own particular ideas on the problems of the day. his own peculiar system of argumentation: and the combination of all of them has furnished many an enjoyable Monday afternoon in the chambers of the Council on the third floor of Dealy Hall. And not only enjoyable, but definitely worth while, as well. For while our radical brethren among the colleges of the city have been raising the skies with their pleas to end war and capitalism, we have dissected their arguments at our meetings and found them shallow and false. • Not that the Monday meetings are the only activity of the Council of Debate; they, indeed, are merely the stepping-stone, the proving-ground for the more important work which occupies most of the members’ time. • The intercollegiate debates.
COUNCIL OF DEBATE
for example; this year, with a strong and taxing schedule arranged for them, the varsity debaters compiled a record every bit as impressive as that of any past year in the history of the Council. Starting with the Cambridge debate, in which John Hayes and Bob McElligott outshone the Britishers and walked away with a well-deserved victory, the Council debaters strode through their schedule with remarkable success. A few weeks after the Cambridge contest. Tom Hilbert and Larry Donoghue participated in a debate with four other metropolitan colleges as a climax to Bronx University Week. Several weeks later, John Hayes and Phil Reilly traveled to New Jersey to battle St. Peter’s on their home court. But the referee was against us. • Immediately after the midyear exams, the intercollegiate debates followed one another in quick succession. Tom Hilbert and Phil Reilly opposed New York University; Ed McDermott and Larry Donoghue did battle with Juniata College; Ray Murphy, Bill Coogan and John Holahan descended upon Brooklyn College. Then came Clarke College, New York State Teacher's College, the traditional battle with Holy Cross, and the annual Spring trip through Pennsylvania and Delaware. • The Lecture Committee, chairmanned by Phil Reilly, is the third important activity of the Council. Since the first lecture about ten years ago, hundreds of meetings of Holy Name Clubs. Knights of Columbus Councils, Newman Clubs and other such organizations have been addressed by members of the Council of Debate. Every year the number of lectures has grown larger and this year has been no exception.

• The appointment of Mr. Harold J. McAuley as moderator last year marked the beginning of a "Renaissance" in the Hughes Debating Society. Under his able tutelage fifteen members, led by the very competent Messrs. Mattison. Loomie and McCarthy, were able to compete in forensic contests with Rutgers. Boston College. Columbia University. Villanova. University of Pennsylvania, Manhattan College, Georgetown University, Roslyn High School, Holy Cross College and Brooklyn Prep. • Besides the three already mentioned, Lawrence Donoghue, '37, John Barry, '37, William W.

'38. and Walter Solinger, '37 saw action in public discussions. • Over a hundred candidates applied for admission into the Society and many interesting debates and discussions were held at the weekly meetings. The Society has been divided into three groups and strong rivalry exists between them. A critic judge, selected from the day’s idle faction, presides over each debate, selects a best speaker, awards a decision and criticises the work of each man. • The members of the Hughes Debating Society express their gratitude to Mr. McAuley for his tireless interest, his helpful suggestions and unbiased criticisms which were of inestimable value to his charges.

• “People," said Mr. Wodehouse's Ronnie Fish, “can roughly be divided into two classes those who think that the short story is the one and only suitable medium of literary expression, and those who don’t.” And the members of the Quill Club must undeniably be placed in the former class. These members of Fordham's contribution to O. Henry’s plaything are a crowd of literary lights who felt that they could accomplish more with their favorite subject if they formed a club. • And so they incorporated themselves, as it were, and set up an esoteric organization, limited in its membership and select as to its clientele. Then they buckled down to the business of developing the short story and strange to say. they actually accomplished a great deal in this line. Perhaps the most novel and interesting idea developed by the Club has been the custom of having every member build a story about a common plot. The results of this experiment were always interesting and very often valuable.

• The Classical Club was organized at the beginning of the scholastic year 1934-1935. The membership was open to members of the Advanced Latin course and those Freshmen and Sophomores who evinced an interest in Latin and Greek. The organization was designed to better familiarize students interested in the classical cultures, with the civilization and culture of old Europe and to prove that the foundation of our contemporary civilization, especially literary and social, is Greek and Roman. • At the first meeting of the year, it was decided that the club would celebrate the Horace bimillenium by having a series of three lectures on different phases of Horace. President George McKenna delivered the first and spoke on the subject of Horace's philosophy of life. The next speaker was Emil Crisciticllo of Junior who, in an interesting manner, compared the abilities of the Roman Horace with the Greek, Alcaeus. Mr. Joseph S. Murphy, Professor of Sophomore Latin concluded the series with a talk on Horace as a social critic.

• With the last issue appearing this month, the "Ram'' concludes its seventeenth year of continuous publication and its first under the guiding hand of a Junior editor. James A. Donovan, '37. From the opinion of the faculty, student body and many college publications throughout the country, the "Ram" presented one of its finest volumes. Ever famed for its typograpical balance and conservative news presentation, the staff this year made a more liberal use of cartoons and pictures, novel headlines and feature articles contributed by authorities. • It would be unfair to mention the various f
writers who composed the staff without recognizing the fact that of the ten Seniors this year, one acted in the capacity of Business Manager and two formed the Circulation Department. • Credit with a perfect batting average. Jack Spollen who served tirelessly and efficiently as Business Manager. His proudest claim to fame was concealing his literary tendencies behind the pseudonym of “Wintergrcen." the poet of the "Ramblings” column. • The popularity of the sports pages was a tribute to the hard work and columnar inspiration of Arthur Mulligan, Sports Editor and author of the widely read "Looking Them Over." Mike Barsa was also a dual personality in his capacity as assistant sports editor and writer of the popular "Sports-shots." The sports staff could not be left without mention of Jack Haggerty, a recent addition, whose feature stories never decorated an editorial wastebasket. • Next to the editor, the most important position on the paper was held by Joe Morrison, Managing Editor, who assigned stories, set up the pages and attended to countless other tasks. Dubbed "Silent Joe" by fellow writers, his actions spoke more eloquently than his words. • Gene Audi and Vincent McLaughlin formed the Senior section of the Editorial Board, and their help in copy reading and judgment of news importance was invaluable throughout their four years. Tom Moran was a recent, but valuable, addition to the Board. • A former member of the Editorial Board. Jim McCrystal at the beginning of the year found himself cast as co-columnist of the ever-popular “Ramblings," which has completed a year of revealing who was where and why. • Behind the scenes in a seemingly thankless task, Circulation Manager Joe Katin and Clinton Maguire handled with quiet precision the complicated task of mailing and distributing some twenty-five hundred copies each week to such far flung places as Tsialoang, Siaolok, China and Tenshudo, Yeng, You, Korea. • June and graduation. No longer will the class of '36 answer the editorial deadline. No longer will they write a last minute story to the music of a linotype’s rumblings. No longer. . . .

• “Fordham-France,” the monthly French paper of the University stands unique as the only one of its kind published in any college in the country. It is written and edited by the members of the French classes of the College of Arts and Sciences and is closely connected with the work of the French Club. • Under its energetic moderator. Professor Basile G. D’Ouakil, and assistant moderator, Mr. Edmund V. O'Sullivan, the paper has grown year by year in excellence and variety and has won the critical acclaim of many prominent writers and savants not only in the United States and France but throughout the academic world. The fine quality of the French employed by the writers is so highly valued that the paper is used in numerous schools as a supplementary language text. Its mailing list includes the names of institutions of learning in the four corners of the globe.

• The conclusion of this scholastic year places another volume in what is fondly termed the “Golden Chain” of “Fordham Monthly" tradition. The graduating class leaves behind it an enviable record both in literary accomplishment and in business management. • Foremost of the Seniors’ writers is Thomas J. Fitzmorris, twice editor-in-chief. Mr. Fitzmorris in his career at Fordham has established for himself a wide reputation as prize-winning playwright, lyric poet, fascinating story-teller, and discerning critic. James F. Kane, '36 wisely handled financial affairs of the publication, while Graham H. Walworth. George McKenna, John P. Lahey and Arthur A. Mulligan, all of ’36. associate editors and frequent contributors, achieved a standard of excellence overshadowed only by the ability of their chief. Among other Seniors, Clinton Maguire, Vincent J. McLaughlin and Edward T. Hering were not prolific, yet nevertheless brilliant contributors, and were rewarded with staff posts late in Senior year, with Joseph Drury of swimming fame, publishing occasionally a delicate bit of verse. • A word of praise must also be spoken forthe work of William Hirten, '36, Exchange Editor, whose watchword was "sympathetic encouragement and constructive criticism to all.” • Thanks arc also due to the moderator. Rev. William Dolan, S.J. by whose watchful eye the "Monthly" was guarded from literary lapses and pernicious influences. • Much of the success of this year's conservative publication was attributable to the excellent creative work of several undergraduate editors, notably Raymond Ripple, William de Rohan Taaffc and Michael O'Neill, in whose hands the graduating editor leaves his work, with assurance of the continued high quality of "Monthly” writing.

• In September, 1928. Francis J. Sullivan, a student, organized a group interested in the vibrant, passionate, colorful story that is Spain, as well as in the graceful and elegant Castilian tongue, and eager for the appreciation of the glorious beauties embodied in both. This purely humanistic motive was the genesis of “La Academia Espanola de la Universidad de Fordham.” • Time has passed, and the quarters of the Language Center in the Dealy Hall have become known as the center of things Hispanic on Rose Hill. “Fraternidad Hispaha.” the annual publication, has gained a wide circulation through the generous assistance of Father Charles J. Deane. S.J.. and many other patrons. The Spanish Club of Fordham has been recognized in Spanish centers, a fact attested to by last year's invitation to join the Institute of Spanish in the United States.
• We cannot close without a tribute to the men of '36—to Joseph E. Rechany, J r., for four year3checking manuscriptsof “Fraternidad Hispana;” to Frank X.

For their own lives must now complete the saga, and that sad phrase be uttered — amigos. Adios.

• Any organization which can transform a Freshman's New Yorkese French in the space of four years into the beautiful, liquid syllables characteristic of the cultured Frenchman deserves some recognition. With that as our major, we add that the French Club of Fordham is such an organization. Ergo, the French Club deserves some recognition. • Not that it has not already received that well-deserved recognition in the past; the reception that was accorded the club's yearbook “Le Rayon du Cercle Francais" in 1935 and 1936 was commendation enough for any language society. The 1935 Rayon, dedicated to the members of the old French Academy, received a good deal of critical approbation abroad as well as in this country. Credit for its success is due the Messrs. Cotter. Dillon. Hcring. Hirten, Lahey, Morelia. Rechany and Roeser of the class of '36. • As for the facility of expression for which the club is famed,
we need look no further than the meetings to find the reason for it. All the meetings of the club are conducted almost entirely in French, and after the first few weeks of “gau-cherie” and laughter, are highly satisfactory. • There is one meeting every year, however, which is not conducted in French; this is the annual banquet, held usually on one of the ships of the French Steamship Line. and. needless to say, always well attended.

• Startlingly unique among all the college organizations, the Italian Club stands as the only language club in the college which has not a course in that language to bolster its popularity. Founded seven yearsago. II Circolo di Coltura Italiana. as it iscalled by its

members, has thrived on the interests and industry of those in the school who were willing and eager enough to see that the Italian language and culture were not slighted at Fordham. • The weekly meetings this year have been consistently entertaining and instructive; and if the topic of Italy's present war in Africa was brought up constantly, we can find reason in our hearts to forgive them, for it is not often that so controversial a subject comes into such prominence. • An unusual feature of the meetings was the instruction in Italian that some of the more learned and proficient members consented to give. This feature, of course, was an attempt to offset the fact that no course in Italian is offered at the college. • Eugene J. Audi and John A. Esposito, both of '36. have also been actively engaged in the work of the Circolo.

S.J.. and directed by Professor Kaelin; the love of German folk-music, and the affection for the German language which these men instilled in the members is appreciated deeply, but more than anything else is the deep and happy love of life v hich they gave to the club and those in it. • It was this “gemutlichkeit” and a well-developed recognition of the humorousthat madethe meetings so unusually enjoyable. Conducted almost entirely in German, they provided as much laughter as they did instruction. The singing of “Volksliedcr” (folk songsi was especially delightful at these meetings, providing as it did that fraternal spirit so well fostered by communal singing and so necessary to the makeup of such an organization. • The most evident example of the club’s progress since its inception iit is the youngest language club in the college is its yearbook, which has just come this June to receive considerable applause: it is dedicated to Father Fremgen.

• Whether or not the fact that the Glee Club each year entertains and is entertained at various feminine colleges influences Freshmen in their choice of the club as an extracurricular activity, it is decidedly apparent that this organization of masculine voices is the most cultural group on the campus. Its Town Hall concert is a sell-out year after year, and the boys in the "tails” and red sashes are the social lions of the campus from the date of their first collegiate concert to the last note that drifts through the St. Elizabeth College atmosphere. • The Town Hall affair was, as usual, the high -light of a singularly successful and satisfying year for the club. An entirely new program was presented, which included such delightful pieces as “Laughing Song," "Serenade,” "Brothers of Romany" and "Sea-fever.” Many classical selections, among them the compositions of Tschaikowsky. Deems Taylor and Ivor Tchervanow blended with
the lighter songs to provide a flow of exceedingly pleasurable musical moments. • An unusual feature of the concert this year was the offering of the majestic “Psalm 150" and “Oratio Jeremiae Prophetae.” The latter is chanted in the Tenebrae service on Good Friday and is a difficult and seldom publicly presented prayer, containing the prophecy of Jeremiah. • College and club both extend their heartiest congratulations and best wishes for the next year to the Rev. Theodore T. Farley, S.J., and Mr. Frederic Joslyn, moderator and director of the club respectively, who are personally responsible for the major portion of the success achieved by the Glee Club.

• How can anyone think of biology at Fordham without thinking of the Mendel Club? It has fostered a true love of real science and has cemented a bond of friendship between its members. It has combined the toil of biological research with the hilarity of the
CISCNVCMCCR. MAPCUISC. V ALKCR. MJLLIN
banquet table. Its members have learned lessons in science they will never forget from the work carried out by the club on certain biological problems. At the meetings, papers on biological topics were read and talks were given by scientists. A number of motion pictures pertaining to zoology were given. From time to time a member performed a demonstration for the club which never failed to be both interesting and instructive. The club room has given the members an opportunity to discuss their work with their fellow students and it has been the scene of many discussions. Father Assmuth, S.J. has taken a particular interest in the club and under his guidance many improvements have been inaugurated. • The "Cabmuth.” the official organ of the club, has published monthly the work of the members of the Mendel Club and news of biology in other colleges. It has received the full support of both faculty and students and each new issue has been eagerly anticipated.

• “The purpose . . . shall be to foster a liking for chemistry, to awaken and stimulate in its members an interest in research work and to afford opportunities to the students for imparting to audiences information of a chemical nature.” • Since its incep-
tion in 1931, the Chemists’ Club has closely adhered to the objective expressed above. The club meetings consist mainly of lectures and denionstrationsgiven by the students. In the past three years of its existence approximately sixty lectures were attended. • The undergraduate publication of the Chemistry Department of the College and the official organ of the Chemists' Club, the "Retort," isanother medium by which the men can develop and express their scientific views and opinions. The interesting and informative articles contained in the "Retort" make it very popular with students in all chemistry courses. • At the inauguration of the school year, 1934-35. the club's program was extended to include lectures by professional men. Since then authorities in all the varied branches of chemistry have lectured before the club. Topics discussed ranged from "Chemical Warfare" and "Explosives” to "Toxicology and Crime," the "Art of Glass Blowing" and the use of “Chemistry in Modern Medicine." These lectures in conjunction with others given by student members have greatly contributed to the club's increased membership during the past year.

positions after graduation, Mr. Bowen conceived this plan of introducing the Fordham undergraduate to the business concerns in the vicinity of New York with the hope that in the future the Forum will be influential in placing Fordham men in responsible positions in the marts of the nation. • Through his numerous connections, and the persistent efforts of President Rossi, the Forum contacted many leaders of Industry and Finance. Contemporaneous problems were discussed at the meetings by Mr. James M. Holstead. Colonel Douglas McKay. President of the New York Title Insurance Company; Mr. Walter Kennedy of the Fordham Law School gave a very interesting and informative talk on the legal profession. Mr. Henry L. Pusch, General Passenger Agent of the New York New Haven and Hartford Railroad, outlined the various financial problems of the nation’s railroads. Many of these talks were supplemented by visits to the large industrial plants in the metropolitan area. • Fordham and succeeding generations of Fordham men owe a vote of thanks to Mr. Bowen and the Class of '36 for initiating and actuating this very practical organization.

Training in anti-aircraft firing wasalso given on the 3-inch A.A. gunsand the A.A. machine-guns. And after supper, when work was done, the boys hied themselves to Asbury Park for some high livin’.

Life is a cloth of mystery Fashioned of hopes and fears With sadness and gladness blended In a pattern of time and tears.
The angels high in their heaven
Saw it was bare and long
So they hammered with rhyme and rhythm
The immortal charm of the song.
And they gave to the stars and planets Music’s matchless romance,
But to man whom they loved past measure They gave the gift of the dance.

• Organized in the fall of 1929, the Brooklyn-Long Island Club has since been the leading factor in Fordham’s social life. In the course of these six years this club, under the capable leadership of various Senior chairmen, has sponsored many successful dances.
• Yearly, the Winter Formal is held on the Friday following the close of the first
semester. At that time, every Fordham man. young and old. casts aside his cares, worries and studies and ventures forth to the “B.-L. I.” • This year was no exception.
On the night of January 31, the biggest dance of our school year was held in the Cascades of the Hotel Biltmore. Lovely ladies and dignified gentlemen danced and swayed to the melodious tunes of the popular Joe Hymes and his Orchestra. Top hats, white ties and tails, dainty gowns and fragrant corsages all blended together in this appealing display of social life and Fordham spirit. • Toourgenial chairman. Bill Whelan,'36. and his most capable committee, the club owes its most heartfelt and deepest appreciation for the success of the dance.
NEW JERSEY CLUB
• The “Jersey” Club, the finest state club on the campus, was organized in 1928.
Interest, geed fellowship and great social success have characterized this active society and brought to an enthusiastic close the most successful season of its history. • In the group that gathered at the first meeting in September, were men from all parts of the “Garden State," including Hoboken. Not long afterwards it was decided that the Annual Dance would be held in New York City in the Pennsylvania Hotel. Chairman John Nelson, assisted by William F. Murphy, Lou Profumo, Joseph Ryan and William Lawler, opened the social season for “Rose Hill Men.” The lovely setting of the Penn Ballroom and the smooth rhythms of Dick Mansfield were a suitable combination fora successful dance. • The “Jersey Club” is proud of her members who are leaders in other extra-curricular activities.

• Connecticut is the sort of state which produces football and baseball managers besides football and baseball players: it seems to cultivate somehow in its native sons the administrative spirit, the managing ability—and hence it might be said that in a certain sense the men of Connecticut run the school. Or. at any rate, they have made a good start at it: Russ Hurley and Chris Griffin especially. • The natural result of this ability for proper and efficient management is the constant and repeated success of the annual spring and winter dances of the organization. The Winter dance, this year, for example, saw a monster crowd of Connecticuteersand their escorts enjoying the rhythms of one of the finest of New England orchestras at one of Nutmeg state's finest hotels in Bridgeport. Joe Muldoon of Senior was chairman of the affair, and lived up to all the traditions that have always gone with chairmen of Connecticut Club dances. • The only activities of the club outside of the dances seem to be holding monthly meetings at which nothing is done and arguing with the boys from Massachusetts.
• There is a rumor circulating through the school that to get into the Massachusetts Club you have to weigh at least a hundred and seventy-five pounds and have a varsity letter. This, let it now be disclosed, is a base canard, unworthy of a Fordham man. Granted that “Moody” Sarno, the president of the club, weighs about two hundred, and Herman Hussey, the vice-president, is close to a hundred and eighty, the sole requirements for membership are nevertheless merely enrollment in Fordham and residence in Massachusetts. • It is true, however, that the one outstanding characteristic of all who admit themselves to be members of the club is their size. Maybe it’s the Boston fogs, maybe it'sthe green hills of the countryside, but whatever it is, it makes them big in the shoulders and strong in the back. Which is all very strange, remembering what Mark Twain said about New England weather. • The main activities of the club, outside of football, consist in reading the fashion magazines and buying clothes.

• Youngest and lustiest of the college's organizations is this Westchester Club; after merely two years of existence it has become as popular as the Brooklyn-Long Island Club in the estimation of those who feel themselves well enough informed to speak authoritatively on the subject. The only activity sponsored by the club last year v as a Spring Formal held at the Hotel Pennsylvania; the affair was so eminently successful that it rocketed the club up into the first rank of college societies, and prepared the way for a repetition of the dance this spring, at the Waldorf Astoria's Starlight Roof, to the music of Carl Hoff's orchestra. If the turnouts of these two dances can be taken as any creditable indication of the matter, this spring affair shows every sign of becoming to the social life of the Fordham man in the spring what the “B-LI” dance istothat life in the winter. Another precedent that was started just this year is the annual Fall Banquet, which was just as successful and a good deal more uproarious than the dances.
• The Upstate Club is. it appears, an extremely exclusive organization; noted more for the quality of its membership than for the number of its members. As a matter of fact, it was only by dint of terrific persuasion and magnificent oratory that the club was finally swayed into allowing more than two freshmen this year to join. And the immediate result of this decision was that the club could no longer hold its meetings in its telephone booth clubhouse. • The mere fact that H. Harrington Canton is the esteemed president of the organization is proof enough that this club deserves all the renown it receives. And if you don't think it receives renown, ask the inhabitants of Albany. New York, regarding the matter. You see. it was in Albany, at the Hotel Ten Eyck, that the Annual Holiday Formal Dansant of the Upstate Club was held. And it was a tremendous success if we can take the word of the boys from upstate. Jim Brearton and Bill Forrestal composed the bulk of the committee, while the boys from the club and their frauleins composed the bulk of the attendance.

FORDHAM MARCHING SONG
As the men of Fordham swing along.
From our laughing lips we’ll lift a song.
Which will rise and swell and mark the beat.
Of the tramping feet.
With music sweet;
And our eyes will shine with love alone.
Long and yearning, strong and burning For the might that’s yours OLD FORDHAM And the glory round you thrown.
So sing, men, and swing, men.
When the drums no longer play;
With arms linked and hearts linked
In the good old Fordham way
Forever, forever, to the final sunset flame.
Till the last great rolling echo Is our dear old Fordham’s name.

• The Rams, despite the fact that they didn’t hand the Audobon Field Club two defeats as the 1901 Fordham team did; nor trounce the New Paltz Normal College team as our 1902 eleven managed to do; nor rout the Young Men's Club of Paterson. N. J. as the 1893 edition of the Maroon accomplished, nevertheless finished the most successful season in Fordham football history. Not from a won-and-lost basis but rather from a basis of accomplishment, did the 1935 Maroon machine reach the zenith of achievement in the football wars that Fordham has taken part in these last fifty years, with a result that we were ranked eleventh in the country for the season. • Fordham started in September fairly well against Franklin and Marshall and Boston College; slumped badly against Purdue in early October; and bounded back into the National picture the following week-end against Vanderbilt. The next day they suffered another off-day. but managed to scrape together enough points to beat Lebanon Valley. Pittsburgh and St. Mary's followed on the Maroon schedule, both of which ended in ties and moral victories for the Ram. Fordham had its greatest offensive day of the year against Muhlenberg and then closed the season by routing an N.Y.U. eleven, top-heavy favorites in pre-game betting and a team which was Rose Bowl bound. •
With the victory over N.Y.U. stored in the theatre of our memory Captain Joe Maniaci, Amerino Sarno, Al Sabo. Steve Sorota, Jack Gallivan. Bill Ladroga. Herman Hussey. Julius Miskinis and Walter Mitkus saw the curtain fall at last on gridiron careers, which will always be remembered as successful.
However, despite the loss of such Fordham greats, the names of Mauttc, Palau. Franco, Paquin, and many others remain to carry on Fordham’s reputation of fine football elevens.

FORDHAM—14, FRANKLIN AND MARSHALL—7
• Opening its third season under the leadership of Sleepy Jim Crowley, the Maroon machine puttered, jammed, stalled for three quarters, finally got under way late in the last period, scored twice and beat a fighting Franklin and Marshall eleven, 14-7.
• The Nevonians scored their touchdown early in the game when Sponaugle broke through the Maroon forward -wall and partially blocked Andy Palau's attempted punt on the Ram’s ten yard line. A second later he recovered the ball and ran the remaining distance to score: Dinsmore adding the extra point. • The Maroon remained in the throes of a scoring lethargy until late in the third quarter when an alert Mr. Pierce recovered a fumble. Here the Rams put on their first drive of the afternoon and on the first play of the final period counted, when Joe Dulkie drove over from the ten yard stripe on a cut-back through right tackle for the initial touchdown of the 1935 season.
• After this the Rose Hillers got the general idea of what was expected of them. On a double spinner—Palau to Dulkie—Captain Maniaci took the ball and ran forty-six yards for the Ram's second touchdown. Palau added both points. • Last year the only defeat Franklin and Marshall suffered was at the hands of Ursinus. It seems they must have Fordham-Ursinus trouble. • After the game two things were
uppermost in the spectators' minds. First, that the outstanding player of the afternoon was Franklin and Marshall’s Medwick; Secondly, that the oddest play was Fordham opening up the second half in possession of the ball on F M’s thirty-five. Reason, too much time during the halves.

• In the kind of a day October loves to serve, soft and warm in the middle, but crisp about the edges. Fordham took their Old Jesuit rival. Boston College, over the hurdles in the scheduled game between the two institutions. 19-0. It marked the third straight triumph of the Maroon and White of Old Rose Hill over the Maroon and Gold of Chestnut Hill. • The Maroon backfield composed of Frank Mautte and three other fellows named Joe (Maniaci. Dulkie and Woitkoski functioned with a preciseness and elan, which was utterly lacking the week before and the play of the line was flawless in every detail. • Woitkoski made the first touchdown from the Eagle’s fourteen yard line on a spinner play behind blocking by Maniaci and McGettrick that could be felt even in the stands, so deadly was its effect, so resounding was its crash. Later Woitkoski came back in the game, being substituted for immediately after his touchdown run. and scored on the same play, this time from his own thirty-five yard line. • The other score came when Joe Dulkie. who aspires to be a legal light, took the law in his own hands, intercepted an Eagle aerial on the B.C. twenty and raced it to the four, before he was stopped by Keough. scoring a moment later on a plunge through left guard. • B.C. used some thirty odd players during the course of the game. Alec Pszenny spent most of his time going in and coming out. Every
period he would manage to come back—like a bad Pszenny.
• Bob Cash proved himself a great money player, when he intercepted a Fordham aerial in the first period. If completed it would have meant another Ram score.

• The Maroon, which had been playing in more or less of a seesaw fashion for the
first two weeks of the season, had a down week against a Purdue eleven, and fell before them, 20-0. • The Rams, untested by Grade A competition and suffering woe-
fully from lack of experience on the part of their reserves, were easy prey for the Boilermakers, who had been forced to the limit the week before by a strong Northwestern team. About all that could be said of the Maroon’s play was that it was tireless. The passing of Maniaci and Palau went haywire, the blocking of the linesmen was inaccurate, and the tackling of the entire team was very slipshod. However, despite all these faults, the score does not r ally tell the whole story, for the Fordham team was very much in the ball game until the final ten minutes, when Purdue put across two scores in rapid order on a team which had nothing but fight left in it. The linemen had played almost the entire game without substitution, while thirty-five Boilermakers had seen action and fatigue was telling mere than anything else in Fordham’s last period failure.
• Tom McGannon, who was calling the plays for the mid-westeners was playing
safe by having Charley Wright kick on third down despite the fact that he. himself, was making good ground through the Maroon forward wall. However, just a few minutes before the
end of the first period things began to pop. Purdue took
possession of the ball on their own thirty-six. McGannon made a first down at midfield; then McGannon,
268HI PAS IHG WENT M YWHt
Wright and Stalcup combined on a pass which gave the Boilermakers a first down on the Maroon thirty-seven. McGannon again ate up some yardage and on the next play Wright took the ball on a reverse from McGannon and faded back fifteen yards, suddenly turned and winged the ball to Lowell Decker, who made an amazing jumping catch of it despite the efforts of three Fordham backs to knock it down, Decker slid over the line but the referee ruled the ball dead on the Fordham three. Two plays later Decker drove through for the score. • The Maroon's only chance to score came in the third period when, after working out a first down on the Boilermakers'fourteen, they failed in three trys at the visitors’ line and a pass, Palau to Sorota, just missed clicking in the end zone. After this break Purdue, once more remanned, scored twice in the short space of ten minutes. The first came, when Charley Wright, taking the ball on his own thirty-eight, cut through tackle, turned back at midfield, raced like the wind, crossed the line sixty-two yards away from the start of his run. This proved to be the score that broke the Ram’s back, for a few minutes later McGannon intercepted Druze’s attempt at a lateral on the Fordham six. At this point the Ram forwards covered themselves with glory for three downs but on the fourth failed as the giant Howard Guirl made a jumping catch of a pass in the end zone. • Skronski came east with the reputation of being the standout center in the country, left the field in what turned out to be a battle of pivotmen. First. Purdue's Bell;
Second. Fordham’s Wojciechowicz; Third, Purdue's Skronski.

• Fordham bounced back again into the football elite and showed some 20.000 football addicts that we were not a team to be taken lightly, by running wide open for three periods against a Vanderbilt eleven, to score twice, and coasting in the final quarter, to win, 13-7. The Gold and Black started slowly, but like their Southern predecessors of previous years. Alabama and Tennessee, never could get under way as their passing attack was hurried all afternoon by a Fordham line that gave no quarter. • Fordham. due to its defeat the week before by the Boilermakers, went into the game the under dog. but playing hard, punishing football forced the issue all the way. The Maroon margin of victory was an eighty-eight yard gallop, in which Frank Mautte carried the Rams out of the shadows into the football sun. Only a second before he had pounced on Bobby Oliver’s fumble and now on the first play, he swept around right end with Paquin and Sarno clearing the way; then he cut back and headed for the sidelines. Maniaci and Druze now blazing the path; put forth a new burst of speed and out-sprinted the safety man to score easily. • The other touchdown was made early when a pass. Woitkoski to Bill Ladroga. put the ball on the visitor’s nineteen; a wide sweep by Maniaci took it to the six; a play through guard by Steve Sorota brought it to the five; a plunge by Maniaci was good for six points. • Will Geny and Sam Agee collaborated in a great passing act late in the final period, which resulted in the Corn-

FORDHAM—15, LEBANON VALLEY—0
• Al Sabo was outstanding offensively and defensively as the Maroon downed Lebanon Valley, 15-0, for its fourth victory of the year and its one-hundred and seventieth victory since St. Francis Xavier sheared the Rams in the fall of 1883. • The Rams, with
the lineup being changed constantly, as a result were never able to get up full steam, but despite this handicap showed up well with two exceptions. One. when Lutz broke loose time and again in the early stages; the other, when they went into a defensive trance towards the close of the game, allowing the Flying Dutchmen to advance from goal line to goal line before Pierce interrupted the march by intercepting a pass. • The Maroon looked good for the latter part of the first half, scoring both its touchdowns in the short space of eight plays, but before and after this brief scoring flurry showed nothing at all worthy of mention in the line of either football ability or football agility. It is also worthy of note that for the first time before any audience, the Maroon aerial attack was uncovered. The Crowleymen managed to complete five out of ten in the first half, for a total gain of some sixty-one yards. • Warren Mulrey scored the first touchdown for the Rams, carrying the ball over from the one-yard line, after Maniaci and Sorota had alternated from the Maroon thirty-yard line. The second came a moment later, when with the ball on Lebanon Valley's forty, two passes, one from Palau to Sorota for seventeen yards: the other, from Palau to Sorota. for twenty-two carried the ball to the one-yard line, from which Captain Maniaci bolted through to score.

• Thinking that nobody in Eastern football ranks could expect to rate with Pitt, top-ranking New York sports writers and columnists left the city for Columbus, Ohio to see Notre Dame play Ohio State. Later in the afternoon they taxed telegraph service to find out the accounts of just how the Maroon had outplayed the Panthers in a game which resulted in a scoreless tie. • They found it had been truly a moral victory for the Rams, who had gone forth to do battle on the short end of long odds. All afternoon the Maroon defense proved itself to be a veritable football Gibraltar and the Pittsburgh powerhouse could get nowhere. The Rams, spending the afternoon on the offensive could do no better, however, as the Pitt line rose in all their might when the pressure was greatest and protected their goal line to the bitter end. • After Paul Shaw raced Walter Mitkus’ opening kickoff back to his own thirty-two the Panther attack became stagnant and the men in Maroon outcharged the much praised Panther linemen all the way. • The first flash that raised the drone of the crowd into a screaming crescendo of football-mad voices came when Arnold Greene’s kick from his end-zone was partially blocked, with the result that the kick was short, the ball going outside on the Panther twenty-eight. It was here that Joe Dulkie catapulted through ..... amoral the middle of the line in a cross buck that nearly meant a
touchdown, landing inches short of a first down on the Pitt
nineteen. After Mautte failed to gain, Palau elected to try for a field goal, which was wide, and the first Ram thrust was

thwarted. • Thrice more during the run of the game was Fordham blessed with breaks, that if they went our way, would have meant the ball game. Once when Palau essaying his second field goal of the afternoon, failed; another time, when the Rams failed to recover Malarkey’s blocked kick deep in Pittsburgh territory, when the ball squirmed out of the grasp of four Maroon-jerseyed players: and still another, when a pass, Palau to Maniaci was declared unconstitutional on the grounds that Maniaci had
stepped outside on catching it. • In the third quarter the Panthers made their only scoring bid of the afternoon, which went thirty-three yards, going to the Ram twenty, where Warren Mulrey put an end to it by smothering a lateral-pass play for a seven yard loss. The play epitomized the vigor of the Fordham defense dependent on a shifting line, smashing ends and unmovable guards. All in all the Ram defense was superb as they bottled up Pitt's dreaded sweeps so effectively that the Panthers did not put together two first downs at any time, except with the aid of a penalty on one occasion. • Due to the fact that Malarkey and Palau spent most of the afternoon kicking for the sidelines, the punting in general was short on the average while the passing, with Fordham completing seven out of fourteen perfect strikes, was also ineffective. The longest run of the day was made by Dulkie, in which he traveled twenty-four yards after taking a lateral from Sorota in the third period. • Longest march of the day was made by Pitt Band playing the famed “Hail to Pitt" song, which kept the crowd’s feet tapping, despite the fact that the mild weather made it unnecessary.

• After the futile battle with the Panthers, the Rams were fit to be tied, and they were, 7-7, by the Galloping Gaels of St. Mary’s at the Polo Grounds before a near capacity crowd of some 50.000 persons. Again fate reared its ugly head time and again as the Maroon for the second week in a row outplayed its opponent only to gain a stalemate.
• Every game has its scapegoat and Captain Maniaci filled the role to perfection against the much traveled Californians. • Early in the second period a now forgotten St. Mary’s back sent a long, high punt from mid-field to the left-hand corner of Fordham's territory. Maniaci standing back on his own five-yard line decided to let it bounce and waited to see which way it would roll. The ball hit dead in front of him on his own eight and to his surprise and chagrin it bounded from the turf to his hip. to his helmet, then into the end-zone. Before he could turn around the Saint'salert Mr. Meister fell on it for a touchdown. • Here the Ram was not to be denied, and after Erdclatz had jumped high in the air to grab a St. Mary’s punt and down it deep in Fordham territory, Palau shifted our attack into high and the big Maroon machine.
hitting on all eleven cylinders with preciseness and eclat, marched to a touchdown in four plays. Palau punted out of danger and on first down Sill chose to kick, but his attempt was poor and it went outside on his own thirty-five. Here

Mautte was stopped for a six-yard loss but on the very next play redeemed himself, when he took Palau’s perfect strike down the alley and ran twenty-two more yards to score, the entire play eating up forty-two yards. Palau had been building up the deception for this play all afternoon as he found that the St. Mary’s secondaries had moved up in an effort to stop the plays through the center of the line. Previous to Fordham’s touchdown pass three had gone awry. One. when Maniaci and Mautte got their signals crossed and battled for the ball in the end-zone with the result that the goalpost got the best of both of them and knocked it out of their reach. Two other completed ones were declared unconstitutional. The first, when Maniaci caught one but the referee ruled he had stepped out doing so; the second, when Druze took Palau’s pass in the end-zone, but in doing so fell outside and it was ruled a touchback. • For two years in a row St. Mary's has returned to California with a victory, which was immediately due to their famous “forward-fumble” play. This year the Saints tried the trick again—and failed. With Malcolm Fiesc carrying late in the final period, the ball conveniently slipped out of his hands and over the goal line. But instead of going to the ground, where Erdelatz could reach it, it hit Maniaci in the face and the Fordham captain recovered for a touchback. thus redeeming his second period blunder. • Best musical rendition for the year was the Fordham band playing “The Bells of St. Mary’s."

• The Fordham Ram came back into his scoring own as he prepared for the annual game with New York University by routing the Muhlenberg College eleven of Allentown. Pa., 45-0, for their fifth victory of the season. • The scoring was well divided, with six men counting, but Fordham's diminutive halfback. Steve Sorota. with two touchdowns proved to be the sparkplug of the Ram attack. He played the outstanding game of his career against the Mules as he led the Maroon out of an offensive slump, which had held the Ram in its grasp for the past few weeks. Fordham led in every phase of the game, rushing: first downs: passes completed: fumbles: and penalties. • The first Maroon score came on a pass. Gurske to McKnight, which was good for forty yards and a touchdown. Right after this Captain Maniaci returned one of Ferrell’s punts sixty-five yards, but the Fordham forwards were guilty of holding. This only tended to enrage the Ram already starving and point crazy after a fortnight's famine and in the second period he scored thrice. Dulkie made the first after a long march: Sorota the next on a six-yard plunge, after he himself had set up the play with a thirty-yard run-back of a kick; and Sorota. the third, when he skirted left end for the final twelve yards.

• The Violets were nestled, all snug in their beds, while visions of Rose Bowls danced through their heads. Such was the set-up as the seventy-five thousand people, who were going to see N.Y.U. play Fordham at the Yankee Stadium on the morrow, went to bed on Thanksgiving Day Eve. Little did they expect that they were to witness at a game in which the Rams were going to prove to the football speaking peoples of the world that they were truly a fine team. All season long the good breaks had avoided the Maroon with unceasing monotony and they had lost one game and tied two others while N.Y.U. had marched victoriously through its schedule, downing all opposition with a great forward passing attack and lots of the old hipper-dipper; with a result that the betting odds had soared with Fordham on the short end. • Realizing that the Metropolitan championship and the Eastern reputation of Fordham teams hung in the balance, the boys went into the game with the eyes of the sporting world upon them, and with that curious feeling that the opponents consisted of not only 11 men but the 75.000 in the stands. All New York thought this was to be one Thanksgiving Day when the Metropolis would celebrate with Ram instead of Turkey. • disillusion!

Violet, ruining its all-winning season and razing its Rose Bowl castle of dreams. The Maroon had had one particularly bad habit this fall, namely of starting winning drives too late in the game. This time this was overcome when they shoved over two touchdowns in the first ten minutes of play, added another late in the final period, and won going away. • The entire Fordham team outdid itself but lo, Joe Maniaci and Andy Palau’s names led all the rest. Joe playing his final game, was the perfect runner, the perfect blocker, the perfect passer, the perfect safety man. in short, the perfect football player. The Wild Horse of Rose Hill had really found himself. Andy Palau, who spent the majority of the afternoon intercepting Ed Smith’s aerials, was superb and his play won him the Madow Trophy, awarded each year to the most valuable player in this game. Then there was Amerino Sarno, who up until the time he was asked to leave the game for taking part in a bit of fisticuffs with one Perry Gcffen. had ganged up the Violet running attack; John Gallivan. who came into his own as his family cheered from the mezzanine; Frank Mauttc, who scored the final Fcrd-ham touchdown; and Al Sabo, 'whose down-field blocking was letter perfect. • Suddenly Nat Pierce and Edmund

Franco, early in the first period, bore down on Machlowitz as he prepared to tear through a hole in the Fordham line. Franco lunged, cracked the Violet captain as he reached the scrimmage line, and smashed him to the ground in one of the most vicious tackles ever seen in football. • Pierce recovered the ball out of Machlowitz’s hand and Palau turned on the full power of the throbbing Ram attack. Maniaci around the end, Dulkie through tackle. Then once more he went to the right as the Violet line braced to smother Joe, but this time he faded back, flipped the ball forty yards to Palau, who had drifted by this time to the Violet seven. Palau took the pass over his shoulder and scored unmolested. The state of New York shook as the radio reproduced the run and Palau's point after touchdown. • Palau kept the
attack blazing away with Maniaci and Gallivan carrying the ball. Then with a first down on the N.Y.U. 25 Maniaci half spun and gave the ball to Gallivan on a fullback reverse. Gcffen hit him but Gaily kept going and managed to score, without further trouble, due to some fine blocking by Al Sabo. • Mautte added insult to injury later on by scoring on a weak-side play through Mr. Klein.

• Victories over Columbia and Army were the highlights in the Maroon Basketball schedule, which saw the Rams lose five games, four at the hands of Metropolitan opponents. However, there was one real redeeming feature in a season which at first glance might seem to have been fruitless. This lone bright spot in the work of the Maroon courtmen was none other than the play of its two-time Captain, Anthony A. DePhillips. who for the third year in a row led the Ram scorers, as well as playing head man in the Fordham zone defense. • Besides “Dee” six other Seniors saw plenty of action during the course of the fifteen game schedule, which saw the men in Maroon win ten and go undefeated on its home court for the first time since 1923-29. The Seniors who shared the spotlight were Babe Young. Danny O'Connor. Robert Reinacher, Dick
Fritzsche. Al Roberts and Frank Cassell. • Other faces to make their way into the Ram lineup at frequent intervals were Creighton Drury. Captain-elect for 1936-37. who alternated at the forwards with Bobby Reinacher and Dick Fritzsche. Victor Del Guercio, Dick Davis and John Daley. • Captain Tony DePhillips with eight points and Danny O’Ccnnor with a like number were the big guns in the Maroon attack as the Rams downed the

field goals from the floor and a fine defensive game by Tony DePhillips was the big reason why Fordham routed Wagner. • The Maroon traveled to New Haven to win its fourth straight from a fighting Yale five. 38-20. Babe Young, who is always at his best against the Bulldog, and Tony DePhillips stood out in the Ram's first major victory. • Babe Young, forgetting that Yale was no longer the opposition, led the Maroon to its fifth consecutive victory over the St. Peter's quintet. • Ford-ham with five victories to their credit went into Madison Square Garden to play the New York University five. What the Rams should have done was to have made a New Year’s resolution not to play in the Garden for when they were through at the end of the evening. Messieurs Rubenstein, Maid-man.Terjesen.Shulman.et al, had a 52-23 advantage.
However, it might be said that the Rams played the second half without Reinacher and Drury, its

Dick Fritzsche and Babe Young both scored eight points, but Dudzick (6 ft. 9 in.) was high scorer. • A late spree by the Beaver's nullified all the Ram’s efforts, which had resulted in their taking the lead with lessthan three minutes to go. and Fordham bowed to C.

• Up to this year, whenever one spoke of the Fordham Track Team, they spoke of Joe McCluskcy. and vice versa. This year, however, things were different, much different in fact, and Fordham. according to its Coach Jake Weber and its Manager Gerard Dolan, had the greatest team in Maroon track history. • After a dual cross-country victory over the St. Peter's harriers, 15-40. in which Jim Rafferty. Fordham’s star distance man. won going away, the next important step for the “hill-and-dalers" was the taking of third place in the Metropolitan Intercollegiate Meet. Rafferty placed second and Calijone twelfth. By taking third place in this meet, in which C.C.N.Y. finished last, the Ram atoned somewhat for the one-point defeat handed to them earlier in the season by the Beavers. • Jim Rafferty did the honors for the Maroon in bringing
the cross-country team's season to a close, when he won fifth place in the I.C.4A. Cross-Country Run. • The first big indoor meet that the
Ram trackmen competed in was the 69th Regiment games, in which they finished second to Manhattan. The majority of these twelve points came with Jim Rafferty’s victory in the two-mile handicap event. by virtue of a great sprint in the bell lap. At the Millrose Games, the first of the big. five-

North Carolina and Columbia, while the one-mile quartet of Nolan, D’Amore, Calijone and Kneen bested Pennsylvania, Rutgers and Northeastern. • In the N.Y.A.C. games the following week, Rafferty, running from scratch, placed third in the two-mile event and the mile relay four finished third to Manhattan and N.Y.U.
• In the A.A.U. meet Rafferty again carried the Maroon colors high by placing fourth in the 5000-meter run. while the 2900-meter medley relay team finished second.
• In the Metropolitan A.A.U.

Three places accounted for all of the Maroon’s ten points, which were enough to win for them fifth place in the list of thirty-two colleges competing.

This late spurt by the Rams at the tail-end of last season presaged great things for the Maroon baseballcrs this year as they were expected to pick up where they left off last year, notwithstanding the fact that the Maroon had lost five lettermen

by graduation. Four of these. Tony Sarausky. Howie Lashua. George Sherry and Ed Estwanick, were key men. Nevertheless these losses seemed comparatively small this spring and Fordham's diamond destines for the future were bright as John Metoskie and Fred Marcella. Sophomores, together with Robert Reinacher. Senior, took over the vacant infield assignments while Johnny Barris moved from the murky obscurity of his right field post to become the No. 1 man on the Ram pitching staff. The team’s strength at the plate was aided when Joe Woitkoski took over Barris’ old job in the field, while the pitching veterans Tom Bristow and George Robinson were further reinforced by the addition of three Sophomores.

and Warren Mulrey. • In the last nine years. Princeton has managed to beat Fordham twice in baseball, both times by the same score, 2-1. This year the Rams made their annual pilgrimage to Princeton, earlier than usual and managed to trip the Tigers in the openinq game for both teams. Those two defeats handed to the Rams by the sons of Old Nassau taught the sons of Old Rose Hill a lesson. The score: Fordham 2; Princeton 1. The game played on a field swept by a brisk breeze proved only one thing; that the pitchers were much further along than the batters, with the result that Fordham collected only five hits. Princeton seven. Fordham scored their first run in the fourth when Joe Woitkoski hit one of Dick Bell’s offerings
deep into left field just inside the foul line and scored standing up for the first Maroon homer of the year. The Tigers, however, tied the count in the seventh when Princeton’s Captain French, with two out, singled to center; stole second; scored a moment later on Dean Hill’s slashing single to left. Gene Coyle received the hero’s cheers, when he drove Andy Palau home with the winning run with a sharp single to center. • The Rams

got their second leg on the mythical Big Three Baseball Title, when they defeated the Harvard nine. 8-7. with a five run rally in the seventh. The two men most responsible
for the Fordham victory were Captain Babe Young, who hit two homers, one to deep right, the other to deep left, and Johnny Barris. who coming in as a relief pitcher, drove in the tying and winning runs and then proceeded to stop the Crimson with the bases loaded. • The next two games were played with St. Francis and the University of Newark and were won by the score of 14-1, and 15-0. respectively. Robinson and Palau starred in the St. Francis game while Coyle. DePhillips and Young were outstanding against the University of Newark. • The Rams scored their fifth straight

• The Maroon Mermen were very much in the intercollegiate swim during the 1935-36 season and under the able tutelage of John Lyttle, himself a former Fordham aquatic star, they managed to win five out of six dual meets on their schedule and by doing so completed the Ram’s most successful season in the history of the water sport, now in its eleventh year. The only defeat suffered by the Maroon was at the hands (and feet; of Rutgers, always a power in Eastern Intercollegiate swimming circles. • Captain Bill Giesen, voted Best Athlete by the Class of 1936, was the Ram’s outstanding performer of the season and the most consistent winner, taking two first places in each of the dual meets. His victories over such foes as Simpson of Rutgers, Hower of N.Y.U.,
and Jennings of Columbia have stamped him as a swimmer of the first water. • Despite the fact that the fine work of Giesen overshadowed the work of the team as a whole, we find such names as Joseph Drury, Arthur Goebel, Edward O’Gorman, Paul Devlin and Walter Schirmer, especially the latter two, playing a big part in wins over such opponents asC.C.N.Y., Rider, St. Thomas, N.Y.U., and Cornell.

• While the major sports as well as the other minor sports drew the acclaim and attention of the student body as a whole, members of the Rifle Team were the real "big shots” of the campus. Captained by Daniel Curnan; coached by Sergeant Joseph H. Smith; managed by Gus Chiarello. the Nimrods completed their most successful season since the establishment of the R.O.T.C. in 1926. • During the course of their prolonged
schedule, which started in November and is still going strong as we go to press, the Maroon sharpshooters placed in two national matches, gaining third place in the Corps Area Intercollegiate Championships and first in the Hearst Trophy Competition for the Second Corps Area with a 946 out of a possible 1000 and third in the nation. • Others besides Curnan. on the Fordham squad were August Boyajian. Joseph Schilling. Thomas Paglia and John Hughes, all of Junior, and
Jim Herlihy. Joseph Mangiardi and John Hollwedel. of Sophomore. Boyajian set a new individual high score with a 190 out of a possible 200 and this record was tied in the next match by Joe Schilling, when the Maroon Snipers set a new team record against the St. John's College team with 917 out of a possible 1000.

• Tennis finally came into its own this year and the regulars left from last year’s team, headed by Ed Presendofer. plus some new additions found in the Annual Intramural Tennis Tournament make for one of the better teams in the Metropolitan district. The lettermen remaining besides Presendofer were Buzz Raynes. Victor Del Guercio, Henry Franey. and Ray Walsh, while the newcomers to the squad were Henry Maciejewski and Ed Kuser. In the early part of the season the Rams, kept from practising on their own courts 'till the week of their first match, fell before a strong Columbia team, but as the season progressed, so did the Rams and

matches with Stevens Tech and Brooklyn College went to the Maroon by lop-sided scores. However, the season is still young as we go to press, and victories over such teams as N. Y. U.. L. I. U.. C. C. N. Y. and Brooklyn Poly are looked forward to in the near future.
• The Golf Team works under a bigger handicap than any other athletic organization at Fordham. By this we mean that the golfers have to travel further than any other team to practise and secondly they have no intramural tournament to tip them off on the relative merits of the students as a whole. However, despite these two major disadvantages, they have shown themselves to be better than average. Last season they met such strong teams as Lafayette. Amherst. N. Y. U.. West Point, Temple. New Jersey State Teachers and Haverford College and this season's schedule is every bit as hard. The mainstays of the team are Victor Del Guercio,

• Interest at Fordham during the Winter months is pretty well divided between Basketball. Track and Swimming; however the followers of the Maroon made much of Bill Morris' meteoric rise in the skating world. He has won many prizes skating under Fordham's colors during his stay at Old Rose Hill, but his greatest effort came two winters ago at the Dartmouth Carnival, when he chased Goldthwait of Dartmouth to a new world's record of 0:35.4 for the 440-yard sprint. He also finished third in the two mile event the next day. This year he brought back two medals and a cup to show for his efforts.

• Beneath a cool autumn sun and a warm round of applause the Intramural Tournaments for the 1935-36 season got under way. This cycle of tournaments is eagerly looked forward to by the undergraduate body and causes interest to run high among those natural enemies in the Freshman and Sophomore classes and gives vent to quite a bit of controversy between the upper classmen of Junior and Senior. They serve as the medium for bringing these ••die-hards" together and also as the herald of passing seasons as they move from start to finish. • Traveling clockwise we find the first com-
petition to be in the realm of tennis. This year’s tournament exceeded all expectations both as to the number of entrants and as to the brand of tennis displayed. The lists, filled with such established court-men as Ed Kuser, Lou Profumo, Jim Donovan and Jeff Hogan, were found in the course of play to contain many hitherto unrecognized netmen of ability. The finals saw Henry Maciejewski of Junior opposed by John Metoskie of Sophomore. The latter's bullet-like service proved sufficient to return him victor over the upper classman by scores of 6-3. 6-2. 6-1. • Looking in on the Intra-
mural Football Tournament for a minute, we find that the lone representatives for the Class of '36. the St. John Seniors, were considered as overwhelming favorites to grab
BC»» ROW SULLIVAN. HILOCORANO. P . VURrHV FRONT ROW CANTON. CLAFFEY. CROWLCY
the title in pre-season predictions. The Seniors had a rugged hard-charging line, showing from end to end such fine players as Leo Neidermeier. Bill Riordan, George Fenton, a former varsity star (who incidentally still plays quite a game), Joe Curran, and Ed McDonough. The backfield deserving of the fine line in front of it, was composed of such fast, shifty, and elusive players as Phil Barry. Bill Claffey, Henry Canton and Phil Murphy. However, after much uprooting of grass, bruising of bones and colliding of heads the gridders of Sophomore B.S.’D” snared the highly prized title of Intramural Football Champions in the finals, by an 18-6 victory over a stubborn Freshman “E" outfit. • The single wall Handball Tournament for 1936 resulted in the domination of two fellow-sophomores, John McMahon and Caesar Altomare over the faculty-student combination of the Rev. Thomas H. Moore. S.J. and John Olive of Senior. Several weeks of “round robining” told on the elder combination in the final round and their twenty-seven consecutive victories went for naught as they were soundly beaten, 21-8, 21-14. • Champions of last season and runners-up in the two
preceding ones the Senior courtmen, tutored by Tony DePhillips, tried to repeat their win of last year’s tournament in this their last Intramural Tournament, but. as in Junior, had to be content once again with the runner-up position as one basket proved their undoing and the championship. Starting the season with a veteran five composed of Hildebrand, Claffey, Murphy, Sullivan and McCarthy with Dwyer and Crowley in reserve, despite their experience the Seniors dropped three games, ended in a triple-tie with the Juniors and Sophomores for the title, and lost in the final to the Juniors. 26-25. The Intramural Baseball Tournament is not yet under way but already the St. John Seniors, champions for the past two years, are declared to be “in,” despite the fact that their star catcher has gone to the Washington Senators. Two other Senior nines, one captained by Frank Baine, the other by George McMahon will furnish the majority of the opposition to the St. John Seniors, while the Juniors with Ed Kuser and Bill Mc-Gettrick as co-sluggers remain the dark horses of the league together with the nine representing B.S.”D.”
• This past fall witnessed the rise of a Maroon first year eleven to the ranks of the undefeated. Although short in duration, the season gave one an eyeful of pleasure in the form of a smoothly functioning backfield with Beale and Brodi at the halfback positions. Chesna bucking from full and Addonizio calling them from quarter. Beale and Brodi were most effective at skirting the ends and skipping through the tackles; and for that extra yard Chesna was the choice. Addonizio's piloting was excellent, especially in the tough spots where the wrong one would have made quite a difference

in keeping the slate clean. • The schedule opener saw a determined Bergin County J.C. eleven retreat before the punching attack of the Frosh and return home beaten by an 18-0 score. In continuing their winning ways, the Freshman converted “eleven traveling reverends" from Wyoming Seminary by the long count of 20-3. The finale saw the linemen gain the well deserved praise of the rooters who followed the yearlings to University Heights. • Against a highly geared N.Y.U. Frosh outfit, the boys found their running attack completely smothered by the "violets" and had to rely on the fierce charging line play of Stanton, Sheehan, Stancavage and Jerman who stopped N.Y.U. in every stage of the game. Several times well-timed blocked kicks were capitalized and the "little violets" were ruffled by an 18-6 count in a prelude to the "turkey day” plucking.
• The first ball to start the Frosh diamond campaign is yet to be thrown, nevertheless, hopes are high and defeat the unlooked for rather than the expected. Coach Vinny Clancy will develop his usual heads-up and hustling nine from an unusually large squad. In the infield both the keystone sack and the hot corner will boast reserves two deep after the regular second and third sackers have been decided upon. The outfield containsa well-balanced mixture of ball hawks, some specializing in the graceful art of flychasing, others sacrificing the art for the willow and long drives and still others who
stand in “medio status" with regard to both as Glennon and Manton. • The mound corps likewise shows no dearth of material and promises to produce several excellent prospects for future varsity competition. At present plans call for the use of the long successful rotation system which in this case would involve McDonald, Bownes, Erickson and Mooney. The catching department will be supplied with two capable backstops in Wallace and Beale, which barring injuries, should be sufficient to get through the season. Although the opposition includes such teams as the Army Plebes, Columbia Freshmen and the N. V. U. Yearlings in a tentative ten game schedule, nevertheless the inside information given out between classes by pre-season prognosticators is: “can’t lose . . . look unbeatable ... an undefeated season."

• Hassmillcr. Jacunski, Beale and Sheehan among others are names to be looked for in varsity line-ups next season. Their accurate hoop throwing and excellent team play helped to make this year's Freshman quintet one of the better first year combinations in the country. A highly successful season, marred only by one reverse in the initial encounter, would seem to bear out this statement and augurs a well-filled and promising varsity squad for the coming year. Playing raggedly and for the first time, the Freshmen lost the first game they played in the 1935-36 schedule to a fast-moving and smoothpassing quintet from the Kips Bay Boys' Club by a 23-17 score. After getting to know

each other by their first names however, and having developed a sense of team play, the "first year men" downed Grace Church. Saint Peters. Yale and the New York Stock Exchange in quick succession. Each succeeding game saw the development of a powerful attack and the acquisition of smoothness and finesse in the execution of play. Extending their winning way through and including the finale with their traditional rivals, the N.Y.U. Freshmen, the yearling quintet showed an aggressive spirit and a thorough assimilation of fundamentals long missing in first year teams. Making the nets hum to the tune of the "Ram," the Frosh basketeers won convincingly from the Heights Team by a score of 32-25 and climaxed a successful season which in the final reckoning showed them debited with only one defeat against credits of ten.
• This past indoor track season saw the presentation of several Freshman dash and middle distance runners to a mile-conscious track world. Although forgotten by even the most rabid of track enthusiasts, nevertheless these youngsters have not escaped the knowing gaze of Coach Jake Weber, who sees in them future varsity victories on the pine boards. Engaging in eight meets the Freshmen were thoroughly tested as to present ability, and their potentialities as varsity trackmen judged as favorable. • Most promising os an individual performer and an essential part of what promises to become the best relay team to wear the Maroon is Frank Slater, former P.S.A.L. 880-yard cham-

pion, who also runs the anchor leg on the Freshman relay. In the dashes Gallico and Shea represented Fordham to good advantage and likewise we re members of the relay quartet. • Crowning their season's efforts the Freshmen broke the tape far in front of their nearest rivals in the One-Mile College and Club Relay Handicap of the recent Knights of Columbus Invitation Meet, with Healey, Hearn. Gallico and Slater running smoothly and without effort. • Passing out of doors let us consider the Freshman Cross-Country team, which engaged in only one jaunt, that in the Freshman I.C.4A. Meet and finishing in the money, if one were to take Scripture literally; "the first shall be last and the last shall be first.”

• The yearbook disease (puhlicandum annualis) is a periodic affliction in all
of our best schools. • Early' symptoms: a Hurry of activity, shortened breath, contracts before the eyes, a shaky signature with an empty feeling in the pit of the stomach after signing. • first stage: staff assignments, liberal promises of assistance, accompanied by a feeling of security. (Look out for this false peace ever hear of the lull before the storm?) • Second stage: feverish activity, sleepless nights, muttering under the breath, eyes gleaming wildly, hair on end. • Third or virulent stage: utter frenzy, accompanied by frothing at the mouth and tearing the hair. Approach with caution, as patient is in no mood to be trifled with. At this point patient may be heard retorting to critics: "I hope all your children will be yearbook editors! • 01" Doc B.J.II.
has never isolated the germ of yearbook disease, but lie's known all over the country for his wonderful bedside manner. Ilis old homely prescription ("let me do all the doctorin'”) always prevents the last and deadliest stage: editorial insanity, aggravated by separate printer and engraver, lie laughs at specialists: ' A feller told me one time, he sez ' specialist is a kind of a man that knows more and more about less ami less, "n" durned if he ain’t right.'
• I wo of the doc.’s best patients this year are ' Heff" Hcffcrnan and "Here Grassi. The MAKOON is finished, and they're not only alive but in the best of health. • Verbum sapicnlae satis est—which, freely translated, means "Let that be a lesson to you."

Suggestions in the Fordham University - Maroon Yearbook (New York, NY) collection:
FIND FRIENDS AND CLASMATES
