CALLERY Presidenl' ASSEMBLING in a body lorlhe 1cirs'r+ime on Seplember l2, 400 freshmen inauguraled a year of marked success and unusual brilliance in all fields of endeavor. ln class. on 'lhe alhlelic 'field and in all exlra-curricular acliviles uniform excellence proved +o be Jrhe rule rarher fhan +he exceplion and so. much is expecled oi lhe class of '42 in The lufure. A Aller 'rrouncing 'rhe sophs in +he lradilional lug-ol-war +he lrosh wenl on lo break records and sel precedenls wilh careless abandon. An all Time high was se? for our sodalily wi+h an enrollmenl of over 'three hundred members. A Freshman Council was organized for lhe firsl' lime and +he class made hislory by sponsoring a Freshman class dance. and a successful one foo. Moreover lhe men presenled a gifl' of a bronze plaque commemoraling 'rhe Firsf Rose Hill Manor. ln debaling The Freshman Forum whipped up an unbealable combinalion wi+h Ward. Borden, Pasquarelli, Bar+le+'r and Bechlold sailing 'through an undefeared season. While Slewarl, Colfer. Mulligan, and Schmidlein 'found a place for 'rheir liferary abilify in 'rhe Ram. Helm won a berlh in 'the Monlhly. Thespians abounded in lhe class, and prominenl' paris in 'rhe Varsily Play were given 'lo Burgi. Yon, Sleward and Brooks. The One-Aol' Play Conlesl' produced a weallh of superla+ive plays wi+h Burgi ,Co+'rer, Johnson and While excelling. Then I70 Too, The classical languages were delved inTo by The Greek and Vergil Academies and The IaTTer spon- sored a successTuI AcTus. Success in aThIeTics also meT The Trosh. The yearling TooTball Team Trounced N.Y.U.'s Treshmen I9-O. BlumensTock, Lambeau and Reis shone on The oTTensive while The enTire Team was superb on The deTenso. AlThough They did drop Their oTher game To The Army Plebes, BIumensTock and Reis came TorTh as sensaTionaI. The Frosh Track men also came Through wiTh Tlying colors. The Mile Relay composed oT Fal- lon, Callery, Shine and Dorland capTured The IvleTropoIiTan Freshman TiTle in The N.Y.A.C. nneeT, and smashed The record. Schmidlein esTabIished himseIT as a greaT disTance prospecT. Then Too, a baskeTbaII Team compiled an enviable record Tor iTseIT as iT Took over mosT of The oTher colleges in This area. Carroll led The scorers wiTh one hundred TiTTy poinTs and sTerIing play was exhibiTed by QuanTriIle, FiTz- gerald, Rizzo and Leonard. Thus we see ThaT The achievemenTs oT The class really were exTraordinary. AT The ouTseT The class of '42 was called The besT uniTed and organized one To enTer Fordham in many years: and ThroughouT The year we have shown The TruTh oT ThaT sTaTemenT, and hope our TuTure will conTinue To do likewise.

THE MIMES AND MUMMERS, paradoxi- cally combining The old wiTh The new in whaT mighT be called a True ChesTerTonian manner, concluded a more Than moderaTely successful season This year. Young Mr. Orson Welles, who capiTalizes so aTTluenTly on his perversiTy, recenTly pronounced The demise of The drama as a living arT-buT Fordham's Mimes and Mummers would noT lisTen. Aided by The enfhusiasm and zeal of a new lv1oderaTor, The college TheaTrical or- ganizaTion underTook a program parT of which was To feaTure The rebirTh of The classical TradiTions of The drama. WiTh This renaissance in mind The Board of DirecTors, afTer much deliberaTion and debaTe, selecT- ed Ben Jonson's farce comedy, "Epicoene, The SilenT Woman" as The varsiTy produc- Tion. Coming on The heels of Sidney How- ard's ulTra modern version of "Yellow Jack," lasT year's offering, This selecTion was as daring from a commercial poinT of view, as iT was ambiTious from an arTisTic one. l-lowever, The play did succeed commer- cially and in This regard exceeded The expec- TaTions of The mosT opTimisTic member of The business sTaf'f, For This happy sTaTe of affairs The eTforTs of FaTher Joseph Nolan, S.J., who served as business manager on raTher shorT noTice, are To be commended. l-low well The players fared arTisTically is a mooT quesTion.

DisTinguished among casT members were Seniors Don Wilson, Joe MaTera, ChesTer Evans and Bob WhiTe. lviosT of The players were chosen from The younger elemenT in The Mimes: and for The firsT Time in iTs his- Tory, a freshman played The TiTle role: The TradiTion breaking honor going To Burgi. l90 L44 So much for The old. The new was ushered in, in The guise of The ExperimenTal TheaTer, a uniT of The Mimes engaged in The produc- Tion of boTh original and professional one- acT plays. This subsidiary group had long been discussed, buT iT never became a realiTy aT Fordham unTil iT was placed This year under The more Than capable leader- ship of vice-presidenT, ChesTer Glassen. By early March, Lady Gregory's "Rising of The Moon," Lord Dunsany's "NighT aT an lnn" and William DoTy's "Tragedy in A FlaT" had been produced, and half a dozen more plays were pending. AT ThaT Time several audiTions were also under way on local radio sTaTions: and iT is possible ThaT, even as you read These lines, The lvlimes may be heard over your loudspeaker. The annual varsiTy One-AcT Play ConTesT was given The lasT nighT of March. The plays selecTed were George J. Gallico's "Guns Make Noise," Richard L. Breen's "The Dreamslayers," Michael J. O'Leary's "An lncidenT in MarkeT Square," William L. DoTy's "Record Run" and John T. Dugan's "Anagni OuTrage." We exTend our sincere appreciaTion To The men behind The scenes who labored un- Tiringly wiTh no more recogniTion Than a cursory program menTion.

The weekly meeTings, held in The STudenT's Lounge in KeaTing Hall, were conTinually well aTTended, in all probabiliTy because oT The inTeresTing and varied programs. The peak oT These meeT- ings was aT The guesTs' Talks such as Those oT Rico y Fraga's and Jose de Omis'. Dur- ing The year The Club made Two imporTanT liTerary eTTorTs, one being The monThly pro- ducTion, La Fordhamensa and The oTher, The publicaTion oT iTs yearly acTiviTies, FraTer- nidad Hispania. On The social side, The Club had several luncheons wiTh New Rochelle's Spanish club: and The zeniTh was reached aT EI Chico where Spanish aTmosphere and moTion picTures oT The Civil War were seen. I97 PUBLTCITY saw aT Ieasf Two irnporTanT changes This year. one TorTunaTe, The oTher someThing oT deep regreT. ln The laTTer regard The Club wiTnessed The passing oT The one who had Tounded and nurTured The organizaTion, The laTe Rev. James A. TaaTTe, S.J. ATTer The misTorTune oT The sudden illness and deaTh oT our beloved moderaTor, The Club was presided over by Mr. Gabriel lvl. Liegey. lv1.A.. LL.D. However, due To oTher acTiviTies, iT Tinally became impossible Tor him .To devoTe his Time To The SCRIVENERS. AT This poinT lvlr. George H. Leonard became The permanenT moderaTor oT The socieTy. The TorTunaTe change was one oT policy. This Freshman group which has acTed as a preliminary To The Quill Club, The VarsiTy organizaTion, had unTil recenTly cenTered all iTs aTTenTion To a considera- Tion oT The shorT sTory. FrequenTly professional or classic shorT sTories were read aT The meeTings, and The members would sTudy Them Tor Their parTicular TeaTures which caused Them To be chosen. AT oTher Times Those wriTTen by The sTudenT members were criTicized and discussed Tor Their Technique. However wiTh The iniTiaTion oT This new plan, The scope oT The Club's acTiviTies was broadened To include any Torm oT liTerary work aT which The member Teels himselT besT suiTed. In This way, in spiTe oT The unTorTunaTe occurrences, The producTion oT wriTing was acTually increased. Tounded Three years ago aT The whim oT an ingenious ediTor To meeT The exigencies oT an approaching deadline, This season really came inTo iTs own. Originally closed To The members oT The campus publicaTion sTaTTs, iTs scope was widened To include any undergraduaTe who exhibiTed a sincere inTeresT in Things iournalisTic. "ProminenT speakers were inviTed To address The Club Trom Time To Time" is probably The mosT abused yearbook cliche, buT in The case oT The Press Club, They were noT only inviTed, They came- more oTTen Than noT. FaTher Leonard Feeney, S.J., liTerary ediTor oT "America," Dr. Francis X. Con- nolly, ediTor oT "Spain," PaTrick Scanlon, ediTor oT "The TableT" and James Powers, sporTs ediTor of The "Daily News" were buT a Tew oT The ouTsTanding speakers To address The collegiaTe iournalisTs. Aside from The valuable poinTers which These auThoriTies gave, Tours were conducTed To several meTro- poliTan dailies where The mechanical side oT newspaper business was demonsTraTed. By Tar The mosT inTormal oT exTra-curricular acTiviTies, The Press Club has sTriven againsT The overwhelming odds oT conTlicTing Time schedules and problems oT reorganizaTion, To do iTs biT, how- ever small. "To uphold The besT TradiTions oT Fordham and oT The press." Time alone will Tell wheTher or noT iT has succeeded, buT Trom indicaTions This year iT appears ThaT iT has. are perhaps The mosT maligned and lampooned individuals on The campus. The Tlashy halfback, The slugging TirsT baseman, The accuraTe pop-shoTTer, The clever debaTer. The brillianT saTirisT-all have The esTeem oT The college heaped upon Them.

However an insignifi- canT cog he may seem, The cheerleader is noneTheless a necessary one, and Fordham's I939 sTaTT was Top-noTch as headed by co-capTains Tom McParTland and Jack Davis.

The success oT This plan is aTTesTed To by The large number oT sTudenTs who aTTended The meeTings. "PorTugal and iTs Colonies," 'Furnished The background Tor discussions during This year.

So in December. l938. The Club was formed by a group oT sTudenTs who desired To sTir up new inTeresT in phoTography aT Fordham and also help Those acTively en- grossed in This subiecT. Fr.

ThroughouT The remainder oT The TirsT halT, and well Through The Third quarTer Fordham did noT score, buT They were in conTrol oT The siTuaTion all The Time, and in conTrol oT The ball mosT oT The Time.

AlThough The Rams didn'T Take The ball game They did, however, have The disTincTion oT scoring The very TirsT Touchdown in Maroon-PanTher hisTory. ATTer Bill Daddio loTTed one beTween The up- righTs Tor a Three-poinT lead in The TirsT quarTer, Mike Hearn Tallied The TirsT legiTimaTe Touchdown early in The second sTanza on a buck laTeral.

Soon aTTer This LighTning Len EshmonT enTered The game and The complexion oT The whole aTTair Took on a decided change. WiTh The aid oT a TiTTeen yard penalTy Tor roughing, and The ancienT STaTue oT LiberTy play, EshmonT ran ThirTy yards and The Rams sTruck pay dirT.

AT This poinT Coach Kelleher re- vamped The Team and his eTTorTs were more Than TruiTTul since The Maroon squad Turned in a lop-sided 72-36 vicTory over Canisius and a 48-37 clean cuT decision over a scrappy Rider Team. Then came The climax oT The year Tor Fordham, The game wiTh N.Y.U., The Ram's TradiTional rival. IT Took some brillianT play by The VioleTs To down The Rose T-Till Tive 4I-39.

In a spiriTed TighT ThaT saw The lead change hands Time aTTer Time, Fordham dropped a biTTerly close conTesT To The Kelly Greens OT lVlanhal'Tan 39-4l. From a close analysis oT The season on Rose l-lill, iT is no'I'iced ThaT all oT The Ram's losses wiTh a lone excepTion, came in groups oT Three.
